After Belle Glade Provost Steps Down, PBSC Begins Replacement SearchBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunEarlier this month, Dr. Marcia Hardney, provost of the Belle Glade campus of Palm Beach State College, announced her resignation from the position, an event that came less than two years after the educator assumed the title. Dr. Hardney was selected as the new Belle Glade provost in June of 2009. She assumed her new role in August of that year. As the provost of the Belle Glade campus, Dr. Hardney assumed its dayto-day affairs. She was chosen during a key transition locally -as construction for the area’s new Technical Education Center got underway. The selection of her as the provost also happened shortly after the college’s board of trustees voted to rename the college from Palm Beach Community College to Palm Beach State College. Dr. Hardney had previously served as the associate director of the Gadsden Center at Jacksonville State University in Alabama. Though Dr. Hardney did not immediately return calls for comment, the college indicated she resigned due CITY OF PAHOKEE CONTINUES FIREWORKS TRADITION ON THE LAKEBY JESSICA SCHULTZ e SunThe city of Pahokee is hoping to have another successful Fourth of July event over the lake this year. Plans are being nalized to produce a show that the entire family can enjoy, with a few special treats for visitors this year. The event has always been known for its pyrotechnic show on the lake. This year around, however, a delicious challenge will bring a bit more zest to the celebration. The city of Pahokee will be hosting its rst-ever barbeque cook-off and dessert bake-off to coincide with the reworks event. According to the organizers, “ten teams from across Palm Beach County will compete for bragging Nancy Grimes completes FBI training in VirginiaBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunA 25-year veteran captain of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce recently undertook one of toughest challenges of her career: a 10-week training course at the FBI. Nancy Grimes, Western Palm Beach County captain overseeing Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay operations, was invited to participate in the rigorous program in Quantico, Va. The highlight of the course was the most innocently named part of: the Yellow Brick Road. Unlike MGM’s beloved lm, the road here is a tough and grueling one. The test is an optional one, but Captain Grimes was not one to let down the folks at home rooting for her. The captain took on the challenging run, traveling a distance of 6.1 miles through a custom wooded trail built by the Marines. It gets its name from the yellow bricks the Marines placed at various spots to show the runners the way. In 1988, the FBI started awarding yellow bricks to Thursday, June 28, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 86 No. 19 SEE FBI  18 SEE FIREWORKS  13 Pahokee Celebrates the 4th of July With Fireworks Display PBSO Captain Takes Stroll on the Yellow Brick Road Interim PBSC Provost Could be Named Next Week PHOTO / NAJI TOBIASCoaches from Pahokee and Glades Central, along with staff from the U.S. Army National Guard, the NFL and the Palm Beach County government, were on hand to show their full edged support of the third annual NFL H.S.P.D. camp initiative that took place from June 14-15 in Pahokee.

BY MARK KINGWe are well into June and the shing on Lake Okeechobee is still pretty good with bass being caught on arti cial lures as well as a few on wild shiners. The lake level has gone up to 11.77 feet above sea level, which is over two feet higher then it was this time last year. With the rain that we have been receiving it should go up even higher. The water temperature has been pretty high and the air temperature isn't much better. The early morning bite seems to be the best but you can still catch a few bass in the heat of the day, even if they are smaller. During the hot summer months here in South Florida, I prefer to get out early and don't really recommend using live bait. I have much better success using arti cial lures. I have still been shing a large portion of the lake from King's Bar to Pelican Bay with the deciding factor being the wind. Areas like King's Bar, the outside of Indian Prairie, Horse Island, and Bird Island have all been good up north and down south the airport hole. Norman's channel, the spoil island out the Clewiston channel, and the spoil island out Uncle Joe's have all been good places to sh. It is summer time in South Florida and the bass shing is slower than what it is during the winter months, but there are still plenty of bass to catch. I have been using mostly soft plastic worms to catch bass this time of the year with the Gambler Ace being my go to bait in the summer. I Carolina rig it, sh it Texas rigged, and also use it wacky style to catch bass from deep water to very shallow. I have also been catching bass on a lipless crankbaits and the Gambler 5" Paddle tail worm. As you can see, summer shing on Okeechobee doesn't require a lot of different tackle. I have also been guiding for tarpon in the Florida Keys with good success this past couple months and as this will start to slow down and only a few resident tarpon will be in the area, I will be offering shark shing trips as well as some snapper shing. There are still some nice tarpon to be caught all summer long in the Keys but the numbers of sh will be less. I want everyone to get out on the water this summer but a couple things to keep in mind is drink plenty of water and use sunscreen throughout the day during this time of the year. Be sure and keep an eye on the weather as storms can move in very quickly. Until next time, tight lines, good luck, and I hope to see everyone on the water soon.Captain Mark King is a full time guide an d tournament angler guiding out of the worl d famous Roland Martin’s Marina and Resort in Clewiston, Florida, and also in the Florida Keys out of Marathon area.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 28, 2012 BY PAT DOBBINS Hendry/Glades Health DepartmentsEach of us has a major role to play in the quality of our health. According to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, your health outcomes are determined by the following: 10 percent medical care (which includes dental); 20 percent environment; 20 percent genetic; 50 percent based on healthy behaviors. Speci cally, those healthy behaviors include: Eating a healthy diet. Choose more fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Exercise. You don't need to be a long distance runner to get the healthy bene ts. A good walk every day will do. Don't use tobacco. The United States has reduced tobacco use by signi cant proportions, but death rates from the effects of tobacco use are still too high. Limit your alcohol intake. Avoid substance abuse in all forms. Get enough rest. Too much rest or too little rest can often indicate other issues such as depression. Avoid risky behaviors. (Always think safety. Wear a seatbelt, use a condom during sex, wear a helmet while riding a bike) Decrease your stress levels. (Take your pet for a walk, read a book, relax with a friend, do something that makes you feel happy!) Make regular visits to your healthcare provider. Sometimes they can spot health issues before they become a major problem. Making small changes over time can get you and your family on a healthy track. You can make a difference in the quality of your health. Prevention is the best medicine. Scienti c research continues to con rm that weight control, good nutrition, exercise, and supplementation can positively impact how you feel right now, as well as your health in the future. We Can Make a Difference in Our Health Hendry Regional Medical Center is joining the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) in urging people to use sound judgment and ear plugs in celebrating the 4th of July, America's noisiest day of the year. The single bang of a recracker at close range can permanently damage hearing in an instant. Hendry Regional and BHI also are encouraging people to protect their hearing when participating in other loud, summertime activities, including concerts, stock car races, the use of lawn mowers and power equipment, shooting practice, power boating, and when listening to MP3 players and other electronic devices with earbuds and headphones. Noise is one of the most common causes of hearing loss. Ten million Americans have already suffered irreversible hearing damage from noise, and 30 million are exposed to dangerous noise levels each day. Children are most vulnerable. "Noise-induced hearing loss can be life-changing, but it also is highly preventable," says Dr. Andrea Livingston, the new audiologist at Hendry Regional Medical Center. "That's why this 4th of July, the hospital is raising awareness within the community of the risk that reworks pose to hearing. People are encouraged to leave the reworks to the professionals and to use earplugs when attending reworks celebrations." Disposable ear plugs, made of foam or silicone, are typically available at local pharmacies. They're practical because you still can hear music and the conversation of those around you when you have them in your ears, but when they t snuggly, they're effective in adequatel y blocking out dangerously loud sounds. Hendry Regional also reminds the public that regular hearing checks are critically important for detecting earl y hearing loss and for getting appropriate help in order to minimize the negative impact that unaddressed hearing loss can have on quality-of-life. BHI offers a free and con dential online hearing check (http://www.hearingcheck. org/) where people can quickly assess if they need a more comprehensive hearing test by a hearing professional. Numerous studies have linked untreated hearing loss to a wide range of physical and emotional conditions, including impaired memory and ability to learn new tasks, reduced alertness, increased risk of personal safety, irritability, negativism, anger, fatigue, tension, stress, depression, reduced income, and diminished psychological and overall health. "Prevention is so critical to preserving our hearing, especially for children who are at highest risk for noise-induced hearing loss," says Sergei Kochkin, PhD, BHI's Executive Director. "So make sure your family and friends fully enjoy the summer and 4th of July festivities by celebrating smart; leave the reworks to the professionals. Stay a safe distance away, and pack the earplugs. Remember: close to 40 percent of hearing loss is preventable with proper protection." HRMC Warns Against Hearing Injuries

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 28, 2012 BY GENE MCAVOY UF/IFAS Hendry County ExtensionA word of advice to farmers and ranchers as w e move into our summer season it is that time of year again it is just plain hot and it is easy to get into weather related problems. In addition, the rainy season is here and chance of lightening is increased. As the heat index rises with the summer approaching; farmers, ranchers, and agricultural contactors should monitor all workers and make sure that adequate water is available for drinking. Heat related illness takes the lives of several workers in Florida each year. Heat is the number one weather-related killer in the United States, resulting in hundreds of fatalities each year. In fact, on average, excessive heat claims more lives each year than oods, lightning, tornadoes, and hurricanes combined. Here are some tips for dealing with heat related issues:Heat ProblemsRemember To Drink Before You Feel Thirsty! Heat related illnesses like heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke, can all be avoided by taking in plenty of uids including water or sports drinks, relocating to a cooler environment, and stretching or massaging cramped areas of your body gently.Heat CrampsRest in a cool place, drink sports drink, and stretch the cramped muscle.Heat ExhaustionHeat exhaustion, which is a more serious condition and follows heat cramps, is the inability of the body to cool itself down. Individual is hot and sweaty. Contributing factors include dehydration, alcohol use, and being overdressed. In order to overcome this issue, you should cool yourself down by misting with cool water or a shower, or loosen tight tting clothing to allow the skin to breathe.Move the victim to a cool place, give the person sports drinks, lay them down, and elevate their legs, remove excess clothing, sponge with cool water, and fan the person. If there's no improvement within half an hour, call 911.Heat StrokeIndividual is clammy and dry. This is the big one! This one can, and does, kill. Heat stroke, de ned by the Mayo Clinic as a core body temperature of 104 degrees or higher, is something growers working in the elds are at risk of. Heat illness requires immediate attention to avoid serious complications, so knowing the symptoms is key. If you notice you are having symptoms such as headache/nausea, rapid breathing and pulse, confusion, loss of consciousness, or ceasing to perspire, get help immediately. In addition, to prevent heat stroke from occurring, avoid sitting in parked cars where temperatures can raise quickly, be sure to wear temperature-appropriate clothing, drink plenty of hydrating uids, and avoid working in the hottest part of the day. Call 911 immediately even if the victim seems to be improving; move the victim to a cool place, remove excess clothing, keep the head and shoulders slightly elevated, fan the victim and spray with water, place ice packs under the arms, by the groin and sides of the neck where the big veins are. Ice will help cool the blood. Here is a link to more info on avoiding heat related illness from the National Weather Service www.nws.noaa.gov/om/heat/index.shtml With summer comes our daily thunderstorms and lightning! Lightning strikes kill 75 100 people annually in the United States and we are luck y enough to live and work in Florida the lightning "Capitol." Please make sure your employees are aware of the dangers of lightning and that your supervisors monitor the weather daily to plan their activities. During this time of year thunderstorms can be a daily occurrence and a safety hazard to eld workers. Florida has about one million cloud-to-ground lightning strikes each year. The number one area for fatalities is in open elds, followed by water related areas, under trees, and while driving equipment like farm tractors. These occur mostly in the months of June and July in the afternoon at about 3:45 p.m. For more info on lightning safety go to www. lightningsafety.noaa.gov. For more information on these and other agricultural safety issues, feel free to contact the Hendry County Extension Service at 863-674-4092 or 863-983-1453 or email gmcavoy@ifas.u .edu.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection received noti cation from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that the permit and associated projects the Department submitted on June 6, satisfy all of EPA's previous objections and are suf cient to achieve the stringent water quality requirements for the Everglades. This action paves the way for the Department to move forward with the state's permitting process to implement a historic plan including an achievable strategy and enforceable schedule for constructing an array of treatment projects and associated water storage to improve water quality in the Everglades. Last October, Governor Rick Scott directed DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr., and South Florida Water Management District Executive Director Melissa L. Meeker to work collaboratively with EPA to expand water quality improvement projects and achieve the ultra-low state water quality standard established for the Everglades. Months of scienti c and technical discussions led to the comprehensive plan, which the Department will enforce through state-issued permits and consent orders that include milestones for project completion, as well as enforcement mechanisms to ensure the milestones are met. The plan calls for the District to construct approximately 6,500 acres of additional stateof-the-art stormwater treatment areas and close to 110,000 acre-feet of associated water storage. Many core project components will be designed, constructed and operational within six years. "Governor Scott recognizes both the environmental and economic importance of a healthy Everglades, which is why he made Everglades restoration a top priority for the state," said Secretary Vinyard. "Thanks to EPA's expeditious review of our revised permit, we are moving forward on a comprehensive plan that is in the best interest of the Everglades and Florida's taxpayers." As part of the implementation process, the Department last week submitted to EPA a revised National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit, along with an associated consent order, that authorizes the operation of 57,000 acres of existing Stormwater Treatment Areas south of Lake Okeechobee. Because EPA reviewed and agreed the revised permit meets the previous objections, the state will continue to move forward with its open and transparent permitting process. Next, the Department will issue a Notice of Draft, followed by Notice of Intent to Issue the Clean Water Act National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit and state-issued Everglades Forever Act permit and associated consent orders, which are subject to administrative review under state law. "This integrated plan will clean up water to protect the unique wetland system that makes up the Everglades Protection Area," said District Executive Director Meeker. "With a rm commitment to design, construct and operate a comprehensive and sciencebased suite of remedies, the District is taking a landmark step toward meeting the water quality needs of America's Everglades. We will continue to work closely with our federal partners to nalize and implement these important projects." Highlights of the strategies include: Design, construction and completion of 90 percent (99,000 acre-feet) of the required associated storage within four years. Capable of storing 32 billion gallons of water, the Flow Equalization Basins will be located adjacent to existing stormwater treatment areas in the Everglades. This advanced combination of "green" technologies will better optimize water deliveries to new and existing treatment facilities, allowing water managers to treat runoff to extremely low levels of phosphorus for the rst time in the state's environmental history. Doubling the size of Stormwater Treatment Area 1-West adjacent to the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. The District will construct 4,700 acres of additional treatment by 2018 and start construction on another 1,800 acres that same year. This expansion spanning ten square miles will increase by 50 percent the treatment capacity of water quality facilities currently discharging into the Refuge. Improving treatment in the western Everglades by adding 11,000 acre-feet of associated storage in the C-139 Basin that is capable of storing 3.5 billion gallons. Improving the operation of existing treatment wetlands in the western Everglades by retro tting 800 acres of constructed wetlands in Stormwater Treatment Area 5. State-issued and enforceable Everglades Forever Act and Clean Water Act permits, including stringent discharge limits, for each of the District's stormwater treatment areas. A robust science plan to ensure continued biological, ecological and operational research to improve and optimize the performance of water quality treatment technologies. The District's constructed wetlands and ow equalization basins utilize cutting-edge science and engineering and are the largest of their kind in the nation. Utilizing thousands of acres of land already in public ownership, which minimizes impacts to Florida's agricultural-based economy and accelerating construction of new projects. Regional source controls in areas of the eastern Everglades where phosphorus levels in runoff has been historically higher. Creation of approximately 1,550 direct jobs and 15,350 indirect jobs through construction of these facilities. To protect the Everglades' unique makeup of ora and fauna, the Department established a stringent phosphorus water quality standard of 10 parts per billion (ppb). This ultra-low phosphorus limit for the Everglades is six times cleaner than rainfall and 100 times lower than limits established for discharges from industrial facilities. To reduce nutrient pollution to the Everglades and achieve state and federal water quality requirements, the District constructed massive treatment wetlands known as Stormwater Treatment Areas that use plants to naturally remove phosphorus from water owing into the Everglades. State law also requires best management practices on the 640,000 acres of agricultural land south of Lake Okeechobee. More than 45,000 acresor 70 square milesof treatment area are today operational and treating water to average phosphorus levels of less than 40 ppb and as low as 12 ppb. The District is completing construction of an additional 11,500 acres this month. Together with best farming practices, stormwater treatment areas have prevented more than 3,800 tons of phosphorus from entering the Everglades since 1994. This past year, the treatment wetlands treated 735,000 acre-feet of water and reduced the total phosphorus loads to the Everglades Protection Area by 79 percent. This plan to improve water quality builds upon Florida's $1.8 billion investment in Everglades water quality improvements to ensure achievement of the 10 ppb ambient water quality standard for the Everglades Protection Area. The schedule for implementing new projects balances economic realities with engineering, permitting, science and construction limitations. The plan proposes to utilize a combination of state and district revenues to complete the projects. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry/Glades AudubonWhite Ibis are highly sociable birds who are often seen foraging in ocks and nesting in large colonies. They are one of the most numerous resident wading birds; however their numbers are declining in Florida. White Ibis are designated as a "State-designated Species of Special Concern" by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Adult White Ibis are about 22-27 inches tall. They are smaller than Wood Storks and larger than Cattle Egrets. Adults have a long, downcurved, bright, red bill and long red legs. Adult plumage is white with black wing tips which are usually only visible when they are in ight. Their neck is outstretched when in ight. These Ibis will y in strings while apping and gliding and often soar in circles. Immature birds are shaped like the adults. Fledglings have largely brown plumage with only the upper wing and underparts being white. They reach adult size and weight at around two years of age. This bird's call is a harsh nasal "umk, umk." White Ibis forage for food in shallow water, commonly feeding in fresh water marshes, mud ats, ooded pastures, grassy elds, or on lawns. They feed mainly on cray sh and crabs, but will also eat insects, snakes, frogs, and sh. These birds nd food by torch when they sweep their bill from side to side or at other times by sight. White Ibis may steal food from each other or have their food stolen by larger bird species. White Ibis usually breed in large mixed-species colonies located over standing water in a variety of habitats including mangroves, swamps, and freshwater marshes or on coastal islands. The breeding pair builds the nest, with the male bringing most of the materials and the female constructing the nest. The round nest of sticks, reeds, and grasses is built at ground level or up to 50 feet above ground. Both parents take turns incubating the one to four cream-to-greenish colored eggs which hatch in about three weeks. They feed the young regurgitated food. The edglings may leave the colony to forage with the adults at about seven weeks of age. During the rst Breeding Bird Atlas Survey there were very few reports of breeding White Ibis in inland Florida and no con rmed breeding records for Hendry County. Breeding Bird Atlas #2 surveys for 2012-2016 are underway. Volunteers are needed to report breeding birds in the Priority #6 Blocks in inland Florida including White Ibis. Ninety percent of the data collection is done between May 1 and July 31. Once a species if con rmed breeding in a block the observers then try to locate other breeding species. For information contact Margaret England (information below). You are invited to join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers for free birding trips to STA5 on Saturday morning July 14 or August 18. Photographers, groups, and families are welcome to participate in the escorted trips.

The truth is though, that this is not an entirely brand new drug. Legislative action on this drug goes back to 2009 when a North Florida woman attacked her mother with a machete and state lawmakers began the push to ban the product. What are Bath Salts? The drug called Bath Salts is very different from the product that you put into a bath. The only reason why they have the same name is because the products look similar like a ne powder. You will not nd the "bath salt" drug at Bath & Body Works or Bed, Bath and Beyond. The bath salt drug is considered a stimulant; it is made up of several chemicals. The chemicals are synthetic derivatives of cathinone, a central nervous system stimulant, which is an active chemical found naturally in the khat plant. Mephedrone and MDPV (3-4 methylene-dioxypyrovalerone) are two of the designer cathinones most commonly found in these "bath salt" products. "Bath salt" stimulant products are sold in powder form in small plastic or foil packages of 200 and 500 milligrams under various brand names. Street Names include: Bliss, Blue Silk, Cloud Nine, Drone, Energy-1, Ivory Wave, Lunar Wave, Meow Meow, Ocean Burst, Pure Ivory, Purple Wave, Red Dove, Snow Leopard, Stardust, Vanilla Sky, White Dove, White Knight, and White Lightening. What are the effects? People who abuse these substances have reported agitation, insomnia, irritability, dizziness, depression, paranoia, delusions, suicidal thoughts, seizures, and panic attacks. Users have also reported effects including impaired perception of reality, reduced motor control, and decreased ability to think clearly. The speed of onset is 15 minutes, while the length of the high from these drugs is four to six hours. It is especially troubling that the longterm effects of the drug are unknown, because the drug has only been used widely within the past decade. We don't know what the future will hold or exactly how people will be affected So why would a teen or young adult, or anyone for that matter, make a decision to use “Bath Salts?” For some, it is to get high or escape, but for many others it is to get energy or endurance to make it through the day. Many people not just teens feel overworked and overstressed, and in those situations, a stimulant can have a lot of appeal. Peer pressure or curiosity can play a large role, and often teens don't know what the effects will be until it's too late. Anecdotally, potential users may think that Bath Salts are safer than methamphetamine. They may perceive them to be legal. They may think that they would not test positive at work or at school if they use it. If you walk into some convenience stores or gas stations, you may see a whole display of pills and packages marked as "vitamins" or "energy boosters." Some may be legal, and some may not be. Calls to poison control centers in the US regarding severe reactions and overdoses due to the drug increased dramatically from 300 in 2010 to over 6,000 by the end of 2011.

Florida’s Natural Growers Board of Directors v oted Thursday, June 21 to add Southern Gardens Groves Corporation as a 14th stockholder member to the Cooperative member base. “The addition of our 14th stockholder member, Southern Gardens Groves Corporation, will help secure a supply of fruit to further grow our Not-From-Concentrate business and provide Florida oranges for our never imported Florida’s Natural Brand. Florida’s Natural is experiencing signi cant brand growth with record market share increases, distribution and consumer loyalty,” commented Steve Caruso, CEO of the Cooperative. The past three years have been record years for Florida’s Natural Growers’ in terms of fruit returns and growth to its members’ equity despite the challenging economic environment. “Southern Gardens, a leading grower and processor of premium quality orange juice and citrus by-products, believes that becoming a grower member of the Florida’s Natural Growers Cooperative provides a great opportunity to enhance its presence and growth in the Florida citrus industry,” stated Rick Kress, President of Southern Gardens. Kress said that Southern Gardens’ fruit commitment to Florida’s Natural will continue to be processed at its Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Plant and that this partnership will operate in conjunction with other initiatives recently completed and/or in progress to ensure Southern Garden’s long term presence in the Florida citrus industry. Company efforts to develop and commercialize a viable solution to the citrus greening disease are progressing to the point that application for a required Emergency Use Field trial permit will occur by late 2012. The total conversion from fuel oil to natural gas will be completed in advance of the 2012/13 harvest, emphasizing facility sustainability and the environmental stewardship. In response to the Florida citrus industry’s continued shortage of high quality nursery trees, Southern Gardens is completing a 50 percent expansion of its nursery operation in Trenton, FL. The nursery was built to provide trees to replant Southern Gardens groves. Southern Garden’s parent company, U.S. Sugar Corporation, is in the process of extending its railroad service to the citrus operation, enabling all future shipments of its citrus products to be transported via rail, removing a signi cant number of truck traf c from the local road system. As part of its “Ground to the Glass” business strategy, Southern Gardens is expanding its grove vertical integration program involving grove care, harvesting and haul programs for other interested Florida growers. Kress concludes by noting that “Florida’s Natural is a leading national brand of citrus products and including a portion of Southern Gardens’ fruit portfolio in this partnership will strengthen and grow both companies-now and in the future.” Southern Gardens Becomes 14th Member of Florida’s Natural Growers SUBMITTED PHOTO

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 28, 2012 Belle Glade brings art and science alive on Lake Okeechobee for at risk y outh and communityThe Glades communities’ Lake Okeechobee Regional Economic Alliance is teaming with EcoArt South Florida to encourage a lucky group of Glades youth interns ages 17-21 from Workforce Alliance, and over 100 campers ages 7-11, to learn rst-hand, through art and science, about the native plant and animal species of the Lake Okeechobee region. Spearheaded by local business owner Ashley Tripp, the two nonpro ts have garnered support from scienti c, educational and arts organizations, and local businesses, worth in excess of $100,000, to develop a six week project that will get Glades youth actively working to re-establish habitat around the lagoon in Torry Island’s Nature Park. Jesse Etelson, an EcoArtist from Martin County who participated in EcoArt South Florida’s rst EcoArt apprenticeship in 2010, is the project director; and will mentor and supervise both the W orkforce Alliance youth interns and the young campers who are participating in EcoArt classes taught by Etelson under the auspices of the Center for Creative Education. Palm Beach State College, Belle Glade campus, is donating use of their computer lab where W orkforce Alliance youth interns will document the project, editing photographs and videos they will shoot with the assistance of local photographer and PBSC professor, Manuel Moya, also dedicating his time gratis to the project. The youth will spend two days a week at the College, researching, journaling and receiving presentations from the project’s many collaborators including: Lawrence E. Will Museum historians, as well as Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and South Florida Water Management District scientists. The presentations will focus on the ecological history and current realities of the Lake and its denizens. Two other days a week will be spent on Torry Island preparing a 30’ x 100’ demonstration site, designed to mimic the plant array found on typical Everglades tree islands. “I recommended the tree island vegetation model for the area” said Don Fox, FWC biologist “because bringing this diverse group of trees and plants onto the banks of the Torry Island park’s lagoon will also encourage wildlife repopulation of an area that is currently inhospitable to these animals.” A tree island typically has three zones, a hydric zone where plants such as Bulrush, Pond Apple and Cypress thrive, a transitional zone where trees and plants that like their feet wet only occasionally, and an upland hammock zone which stays dry most of the time and is best for Cabbage Palm and Laurel Oak. The 30’ x 100’ site will also be interspersed with EcoArt wildlife habitat sculptures, created by the Workforce Alliance youth from felled exotic trees and understory brush, to the designs, and under the supervision, of EcoArtist Etelson. The EcoArt sculptures will deteriorate at about the same rate as the new native tree and shrub habitat grows up. Educational signage will also be developed by the youth interns, helping the demonstration site serve as an introduction to visitors of all ages to the ecologies of the lake. Andres Paradelo, a licensed Landscape Architect, and of cer of the Palm Beach County branch of the US Green Building Council, is donating his time to working with the youth interns to create a master plan for the entire littoral area around the Torry Island Park lagoon. The plan, along with signed drawings ready to go out for bid, will be a key feature of a capstone exhibition to open the week after Labor Day at the Dolly Hand Cultural Center on the PBSC campus in Belle Glade. Artwork, documentation in text, photography and video created by the youth interns will also be displayed at the exhibition. There are also plans for lms and lectures on environmental themes to accompany the Torry Island EcoArt Project exhibition at the Dolly Hand center during the month of September. The project started this week, June 25th and ends with the closing of the capstone exhibition the October 4. Youth interns from Workforce Alliance will work on the project from June 25 through August 3. Children from three Pahokee Summer camp programs will work during the month of July to create EcoArt Bird Nesting Habitats as well as masks, large puppets and costumes depicting the plants and endangered animals of the Lake Okeechobee region, and will perform a dance procession on Torry Island, at the City of Belle Glade dedication of the demonstration site at the end of July.

Ms. Criswell is hoping that the addition of the culinary contests will bring even more people out to Pahokee for the day. Ms. Criswell said she is especially proud of the fact that Pahokee is one of the few places on Lake Okeechobee where reworks are set off right over the waters. The explosions are mirrored beautifully on the lake. The city’s mayor, referencing decades of Fourth of July celebrations on the lake, is proud of this celebration. “I believe it is one of the highlights of the years,” said J.P. Sasser, Mayor of Pahokee, who reported that the city purchased $10,000 worth of reworks for this year’s show. “They are some of the best you’ve ever seen. Last year was just phenomenal,” remembered Sasser. Even with the explosive entertainment, there are never any injuries or accidents at the Pahokee event. This is due to the location of the lighting and the fact that hired professionals handle the reworks. In the hours before the reworks event, vendors will supply food and entertainment. Present at the campground will be two deejays to provide music for folks to dance and sing along with. One worry remains: the weather. Criswell expressed her hopes that it doesn’t rain, while Mayor Sasser took a different perspective. “Why worry about something you have no control over? What happens, happens. We will make this celebration memorable regardless.” FIREWORKSContinued  1 to personal issues. The provost is expected to remain on the job through June 30, when her contract expires. In the wake of the announcement that Dr. Hardney is leaving, Palm Beach State College is reporting that a search for her replacement has gotten underway. While the college’s board of trustees expects to nd a permanent replacement for the position later this year, PBSC is indicating that an interim provost could be named as early as next week to handle the operations of the Belle Glade campus. “We are hoping to keep the process owing smoothly and hope to have a permanent replacement, a name to take to the board of trustees, next fall,” said Grace Truman, director of college relations and marketing. According to Ms. Truman, the college is preparing an ad to run in national publications beginning in July, which will begin the search for the new provost in earnest. PBSCContinued  1 Dr. Marcia Hardney Event to help group further its goal of building a community centerNewKita Group will be hosting its 3rd Walk for Change event in the City of Belle Glade on Aug. 18. NewKita Group is currently in need of walkers, volunteers, sponsors, and vendors. The walk will kick-off at Lakeshore Park heading down Martin Luther King Avenue and back to Lake Shore Park where there will be a variety of vendors, fun, entertainment, food, games, activities, health, and wellness education. This event will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration for the walk is free. NewKita Group and the community will be highlighting issues such as education, crime prevention, health and tness, economic development, job creation, and bringing communities together. The Glades currently does not have a community center that is equipped to serve the youth, adults, senior citizens, and families concurrently. NewKita Group and others are working toward the goal and ask that community members participate in the proposal to build the community center. NewKita Recruiting Volunteers for Walk for Change A video created by KEC/Canal Point Elementary’s KEC TV news club placed 2nd in the 2012 Florida School Board Association’s Video Contest. Placing in this contest is one of the biggest accomplishments for the school’s video production program since this was the rst time the school entered a video contest where they competed against middle schools and high schools. The rst place winner was a high school club. The theme of the FSBA contest was “What’s Super About Public Schools.” KEC/Canal Point Elementary’s video titled “Super Student and his Super Public School” was about a superhero named Super Student. The video showed that all of Super Student’s super powers came directly from all of the super things happening at his public school. Super Student was played by 5th grader Anthony Bowie. Anthony has been a part of the KEC TV news since he started in third grade as Damon Weaver’s (student who interviewed President Obama) protg. KEC/Canal Point Elementary has been awarded $2,500 for winning 2nd place. The money will be used to improve the school’s television studio (replace broken and old equipment) and to cover travel expenses for events that the school covers off campus. This has been a very successful school year for KEC/Canal Point Elementary’s KEC TV news club since they created videos that placed in all four statewide/nationwide video contests that they entered. The video can also be watch in the KEC/ Canal Point Elementary’s KEC TV news club You Tube Channel at: http://youtu.be/TuFeVhfW9Xw.

Jaci earned prizes and an award for reading at least 25 books this summer. Since the beginning of June, Jaci has read at least 45 books. She is now working on the First Lady of Florida’s ‘Just Read! Challenge.’ She only has a handful of books left to go. Jaci is also logging her reading on the computer to help her school make it into the World Record Book for the most reading this summer. those who successfully completed it. She had been looking forward to the test and thought about it most on Wednesdays, which was reserved for physical tness training. "You work practically the whole ten weeks to be able to do it," she told The Sun, beaming proudly, "You can come down to the of ce to see my yellow brick." But although the physical tness event was an important aspect of the program, enrichment seminars featuring presentations from some of the top law enforcement representatives in the country including a presentation by one of the men who was a prisoner of war during the Black Hawk Down incident provided the captain with unique insights into how other agencies tackle issues of criminal enforcement. "By doing that, you learn what works in other places, and you're able to collaborate on these best practices," said Captain Grimes. She also enjoyed passing on the knowledge she has acquired to other people who participated in the training. The program is an invitation only event, and Captain Grimes was nominated by a local committee, which the sheriff approved. The program was born in the 1930s, with the understanding that law enforcement agencies could bene t from centralized training. The professional course of study serves to, "raise law enforcement standards, knowledge and cooperation worldwide." Captain Grimes was honored to attend. "It was great. It was a little hard and a little dif cult, but I got through it and I'm glad," she said. She returned to her base of operations earlier this month and hopes to put the training she acquired in Virginia to good use. Still, the captain was happy to return to Belle Glade. "It was a wonderful experience, but you don't know what you have until it's gone," said Captain Grimes. "I missed my regular work."

Getting Lost at the Pub or Getting Lost at the Temple?BY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchMy interest was piqued by the international news event when the British Prime Minister inadvertently left his daughter in a pub after having lunch. Apparently, the family was eating there, and mother and father arrived in different cars. When they left, each thought the other had taken their eightyear old daughter home, but she was nowhere to be found. They promptly returned to the pub, (she had gone to the restroom when her parents had left) and they found her safe and sound. The staff at the pub provided for her well-being in the interim, no doubt with light conversation and a chance to chat with a special eight-year old. The issue turned quickly to those charged with guarding the Prime Minister and his family. Where was security? There certainly was a lapse that should not have occurred. An announcement was made that there would be no imposition of blame or penalties; an oversight with no undue consequences, and the matter was ended. Some of the news commentators pointed out to a similar lapse recently that took place in Colombia. Apparently the U.S. Secret Service contingent assigned to guard the President was distracted. The circumstances were different; people got red, some were allowed to end their careers, the investigation was ongoing. New rules were promulgated; same standards that you would nd in the U.S. for our agents overseas; no exceptions even if the local rules allow for different behavior. If the overseas rules were some sort of professional "perk", don't count on it in the future! There is a biblical parallel to what happened to the Prime Minister's daughter. Jesus' family goes to the temple when He is twelve-years-old. They meet their obligations and leave. People assume He is with other family members; then a day later nd out He is missing. They retrace their steps, and after three days nd Him in deep discussion with the rabbis. Jesus' parents are upset but His reply is "Didn't you know I had to be in my Father's house?" You can read the account for yourself in the Gospel of Luke, chapter 2, verses 41-52. The account concludes by noting that "His mother treasured all of these things in her heart (verse 51)." Apparently, under dif cult circumstances for her, Mary was pleased with what her son was doing while they were separated. The Prime Minister's daughter was attended to by the employees at the pub; circumstances where she found herself but not misusing the time, going wild, going berserk, acting out. Time spent in extraordinary circumstances, outside of our normal environments, beyond our day-to-day routines is time to be redeemed, put to use, regarded as an opportunity to see and learn something new we might not otherwise get to see. Scriptures speak of "redeeming the time" and the Lord gives us a great example. The parable might be good reading for those who are charged with protecting others, too. Religion Column Sam S. Thomas "Time spent in extraordinary circumstances, outside of our normal environments, beyond our day-to-day routines is time to be redeemed, put to use, regarded as an opportunity to see and learn something new we might not otherwise get to see."Rev. Sam S. Thomas Summer's here -the sun is shining and it's time to relax. Drifting off to sleep when the heat and humidity kick in can actually be more dif cult than it sounds, especially for people who don't have air conditioning. Maintaining a cool bedroom temperature is just one of many ways the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) recommends people can get a better night's sleep. Here are a few other strategies from the NSF report "Recommendations for a Healthy Sleep":Make your day work for youMorning exposure to sunlight, daily exercise and a consistent routine of going to bed and waking up at the same time will help program your body to wind down when it's time to sleep. Calming activities, such as leisure reading, will also help you relax and ease the transition into deeper sleep. Create a sleep sanctuary: Dim the lights in the evening to tell your body bedtime is approaching and sleep in a dark room. Your bedroom should be a sanctuary from all the stresses of the day. Keep it cool, quiet and free from distractions. While room lights, TV, computers and other electronics illuminate our worlds well beyond nightfall and give us the ability to stay active after dark, scientists are now contemplating how this prolonged exposure to light might interfere with our bodies' naturally-programmed sleep patterns. In other words, computers, cell phones and work assignments should be out of sight.Have a backup planLessen the pressures of trying to fall asleep by selecting a calming activity that's right for you. If you're not sleepy, simply get out of bed and do something relaxing in dim light. Return to bed only when you are sleepy.Talk to your doctor if sleeplessness persistsSometimes lifestyle changes and behavioral approaches are not enough to correct the issue. A variety of over-the-counter (OTC) medications are available to treat occasional sleeplessness. For example, ZzzQuil, from the makers of Vicks NyQuil, is a non-habit-forming sleep-aid that can help you fall asleep and get a good night's rest.
