BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunThe anticipation is nearly over – well half over, at least. Rising up from what was an unassuming plot of land adjacent to Lake Shore Middle School in Belle Glade is a gray, concrete structure whose dimensions are looking impressive. Watching it from across the temporary construction fence set around it, Phyllis Lilley, Glades libraries branch manager, documents the progress. “It looks like the concrete and cement work is done,” she said. “The next thing they will be doing is the electrical work.” Though she will not be the one to say it, Ms. Lilley sounds like a proud mother-to-be, and that is to be expected. For years, she and her staff -grateful with the space they had at the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and South Main Street -nevertheless seemed to be running out of space at an ever quicker and quicker pace. The construction of a new re station near the older library had squeezed most of the parking spaces away for its spacious, yet necessary, re engine bays. A handful of parking spaces were all that remained for the employees and patrons of the library. They will now have more than 100 parking spaces. As has been reported, the new facility is set to remedy that, and many other issues with a sizeable 17,000 square foot building, built from the ground up with library staff’s and library-customers’ needs in mind. The community has been standing by, waiting patiently. Among the many amenities the new facility will offer: a children’s program room, additional computers, four private study rooms, and an approximately 3,000 square foot sized area that will serve as a community civic center. The library is also an Art in Public Places site, and will feature a mosaic oor medallion installed in the lobby.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 florida.newszap.com Check out these new features: • Daily Local News Updates • New interactive and easy to navigate format • Plus much, much more!Come see for yourself! 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 5, 2012One year, four months, and 17 days before Abraham Lincoln addressed a war-weary crowd at the dedication of a cemetery in Gettysburg, the President signed legislation that made an immediate and everlasting impact on the way people experience their lives. The Morrill Act established the land-grant university system and essentially initiated what could be de ned as "The Education Revolution" that thrives to this day. July 2 is the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Morrill Act, which created the land grant university system, of which the University of Florida is a part. This public investment in higher education has made a signi cant difference in the quality of life for Floridians. Not only did it allow for the education of those who previously had little access to higher learning, but it created a system in which university faculty and researchers share their knowledge and discoveries with the public for the betterment of Florida's communities and economy. When President Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill Act in July 1862, he demonstrated remarkable foresight, particularly considering the country was in the midst of the Civil War. Lincoln realized the importance of higher education and made Representative Justin Morrill's dream a reality. The passage of the Morrill Act in 1862 provided thousands of Americans access to knowledge and a teaching environment they most likely never would have experienced. That cause was furthered by the Second Morrill Act in 1890, which provided funding to institutions for African American students. A century and a half later, America's 74 landgrant universities continue to connect students with the nest faculty and resources the country has to offer. The University of Florida is proud to be a leading member of that group. UF offers more than 100 undergraduate degrees and more than 200 graduate degrees. Our accessibility can also be measured in our affordability. This year marks the seventh year in a row that the University of Florida was named the second-best value in public colleges in the U.S. by Kiplinger's Personal Finance. One of only six universities in the country with colleges of law, medicine, agriculture, and veterinary medicine on one central campus, as well as undergraduate and graduate degrees available via distance and online learning, the University of Florida exempli es the vision of the Morrill Act. UF is also one of only 17 universities in the country to share the distinction of land-grant, sea-grant, and space-grant status. Throughout its history as a land-grant university, UF has achieved a great number of successes while ful lling a mission to teach, research, and provide service. The quality of our education has produced multiple Nobel Prize winners, as well as U.S. senators, U.S. representatives, state governors, U.S. ambassadors, college presidents, and countless leaders of major companies and institutions, from MTV to the United States Marine Corps. Research has resulted in breakthrough products that have changed the playing eld. In one case, quite literally: Gatorade. Further evidence is the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/ IFAS), which has earned the No. 1 ranking in Agricultural R&D from the National Science Foundation. With nearly 300 different crops produced throughout the state, Florida -the nation's leader in that category -faces a more diverse set of challenges. UF/IFAS has risen to the occasion and embarked on research initiatives to meet those challenges. Dedicated to developing knowledge in agriculture, human and natural resources, and the life sciences, UF/IFAS is also charged with the responsibility of making that information accessible throughout the state. To that end, each of Florida's 67 counties is served by a dedicated UF/IFAS of ce. This was made possible by the 1914 Smith-Lever Act that provided federal support for land-grant institutions to offer educational programs through cooperative extension efforts. For a century and a half, in thousands of ways, big and small, the University of Florida has helped make Florida a great place to live, work, and play through its core mission of teaching, research, and outreach. It has played a vital role in helping the United States produce the safest and most plentiful food supply on earth. As we move into a period of continued budget cuts and expectations to do more with less, please help spread the word about UF/IFAS Extension, 4-H, the services that are provided, and the great people that work at UF.

The University of Florida is proud to be one of them.Southwest Florida Ag Update: 150th Anniversary of the Land Grant System SUBMITTED PHOTOAn early county agent, Dr. W.E. French, rides horseback.

The bald eagle population is increasing in Florida, which continues to be one of the top spots in the lower 48 states for bald eagles to nest and raise their young. Based on its 2011 aerial survey, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) estimates there are 1,457 active bald eagle nests in Florida, nearly a 9-percent increase since 2008, when the state implemented a bald eagle management plan. Long-term success with bald eagles in Florida is re ected in the species' recovery from just 88 active nests in 1973. Today at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland, leaders from the FWC and Audubon Florida highlighted the bald eagle's recovery and the ongoing challenge of conserving these large raptors. They said celebrating the bald eagle's resurgence in Florida was a great way to kick off the nation's 236th anniversary of declaring independence. "Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery in Florida. The FWC and Audubon are working together to protect bald eagles in Florida, so these majestic raptors will continue to soar as a symbol of national pride and conservation success," said FWC Chairman Kenneth Wright. For 20 years, Audubon Florida has recruited citizen-scientists to monitor eagles and their nests through its EagleWatch program, active in more than 40 counties. By monitoring more than 20 percent of the state's nesting pairs, these volunteers make a signi cant difference in conserving the species. "Audubon is proud to have played a role in the bald eagle's amazing success story in Florida," said Eric Draper, executive director for Audubon Florida. "Our dedicated staff and EagleWatch volunteers, along with our state agency partners, have helped to identify potential threats to these magni cent birds and their nest sites, but our work is far from done. Together, we are leading the nation in the protection of this important and iconic species." Working with ranchers and other landowners to protect bald eagle habitat is another priority for Audubon, with its involvement going back 50 years to the start of the Cooperative Kissimmee Eagle Sanctuary Program. Florida's greatest concentrations of bald eagle nesting territories are clustered around coastal and freshwater areas such as the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes. In 2011, Osceola and Polk counties ranked rst and second, respectively, for highest number of documented bald eagle nests. Floridians and visitors are encouraged to get outdoors on July 4th and throughout the year to enjoy the state's many parks and public lands and watch bald eagles soar. You can nd a Bald Eagle Nest Locator at MyFWC.com/Eagle. Bald eagles almost disappeared from the lower 48 states by the mid-20th century, with an estimated 417 pairs in the United States in 1963. The use of the now-banned pesticide DDT was causing eggshells to weaken and break under the weight of adults incubating eggs. Today, a healthy and stable eagle population in Florida will depend on continued availability of appropriate nesting and foraging habitats, as well as protection from disturbance during the nesting season. While the bald eagle is no longer listed as an endangered or threatened species, it is federally protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and by state rule (F.A.C. 68A-16.002). It is illegal to feed, disturb, take or possess a bald eagle, its feathers, nest or eggs. The public can help conserve bald eagles in Florida by following state guidelines for activities near eagle nests, and by reporting new eagle nest locations to BaldEagle@MyFWC.com. The goal of the FWC bald eagle management plan, developed with public input, is to maintain a stable or increasing bald eagle population throughout Florida. The FWC provides guidelines for avoiding disturbance to nesting eagles, and a permitting framework for activities that cannot adhere to the guidelines. Audubon's Center for Birds of Prey contributes to eagle conservation through its specialized clinical care and EagleWatch program. The Center recently celebrated the 450th rehabilitated bald eagle released back into the wild since 1979. For more on bald eagles, go to MyFWC.com/ Eagle.

Lightning strikes do not usually cause mass destruction of property, so it may not be considered as a "high-risk" to some people. However, lightning has killed over almost 100 people in the last few years. Did you know that lightning can strike as far as ten miles from the area where it's raining? That's about the same distance that you can hear thunder. So if you can hear the thunder, that means you are within striking distance. Most lightning deaths or injuries happen in the summer. School is out for summer, so take time now to educate your family on lightning safety. "When lightning roars go indoors!" There are some indoor dangers to remember as well. Stay off of corded phones and computers during lightning. If a person is struck by lightning, please call 911 and get medical care immediately. Heart irregularities, cardiac arrest, nerve damage, and burns are common when someone gets struck by lightning. However, with proper treatment, including CPR if necessary, most victims survive a lightning strike. You are in no danger helping a lightning victim. The charge will not affect you. Lightning Safety in the Lightning Capital of the World PHOTO / WADDY THOMPSONFierce lightning storms like this one in South Florida can be potentially deadly if residents fail to take the proper precautions.

Indeed, the advanced coursework played the largest factor in Pahokee High receiving its high ranking. The Washington Post’s High School Challenge looks primarily at a school’s achievements in readying students for college. Scores are awarded by taking the total number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certi cate of Education tests given at a school each year and dividing by the number of seniors graduating. According to the Post, only 9 percent of public high schools in the United States managed to place on the list. One interesting aspect of the ranking is that schools are neither moved higher on the list, nor lower, depending on the overall results of those tests. In fact, how well a school’s population did on their testing is an irrelevant component in the ranking. “AP, IB and AICE are important because they give average students a chance to experience the trauma of heavy college reading lists and long, analytical college examinations,” said Washington Post analyst Jay Mathews. “Research has found that even low-performing students who got only a 2 on an AP test did signi cantly better in college than similar students who did not take AP.” The principal agreed. “I tell my students, ‘even if you don’t pass your IB exams in your senior year, the exposure is what colleges look for.’ The IB program really prepares the kids for the coursework they’ll have [in college].” Principal Alejo hopes to only further the success the school is enjoying. Already he is planning on making aggressive moves in implementing the IB program school-wide. Although he is not making any promises on when the move might happen, the principal remains con dent that the school will succeed in the transition. Pahokee High currently has two major programs, the Middle Years Program targeting students in grades 9 and 10 (all students participate in this program), and the IB program. The goal is to closely monitor 10th graders to meet the criteria to participate in the IB program. The principal was especially proud to see a Glades school alongside schools located in much wealthier areas of the county. Only two schools in Palm Beach County did better, Suncoast and Boca Raton High. Alexander W. Dreyfoos Jr. School of the Arts edged out Pahokee with its 58th position, while Atlantic High placed at 181st and Spanish River at 252nd. While he is not making any promises, Mr. Alejo hopes to see the return of Pahokee High to the list next year, as well. Look out for more students testing for higher level course credit. He points to another Glades school, Gove Elementary in Belle Glade, as proof that a schoolwide program can be successful. Serving at that school as an administrator, Mr. Alejo said he had one goal at Gove – something that he hopes to transfer to Pahokee High – to “make believers out of parents and make believers out of kids.” SCHOOLSContinued  1 WANT TO SUBMIT NEWS? events? | photos? | tips? | stories ?

Main Street LaBelle, FL 33935 863-675-0761 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 5, 2012 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Boat-tailed Grackle is a noisy aggressive bird that is found exclusively along the Gulf and Atlantic coast of the United States. Two or possibly three races of this species are found in Florida. The eye colors vary from region to region from dark brown to light yellow. According to the Cornell’s “All about Birds” website, Grackles along the Atlantic coast north of Florida have strawcolored eyes. Florida birds have dark eyes and Grackles west of Florida to eastern Louisiana have light eyes, but those further west have dark ones. Boattailed Grackles live and breed throughout much of Florida. The male is a large iridescent purple black bird with wings and a long tail that are more greenish. The female is one-half the size of the male and has a cinnamon brown back and head with a paler brown breast and belly. Female’s tails and wings are dark brown. Juveniles are brown like the female but have streaked underparts. The Boat-tailed Grackles call is a series of sharp notes and harsh guttural trills with its call made up of sharp “chek” notes and variable piping whistles. Boat-tailed Grackles are communal roosters who are commonly found near fresh water and salt marshes. They are often seen walking on the ground picking up food items, turning over stones with their bills, and sticking their bill into grass or dirt searching for prey in open habitats, urban areas, and agricultural elds. Their diet consists mainly of insects, frogs, fruits, grains, sh, small mammals, and garbage. Nests are often built in reeds, small shrubs, or trees above water, but they will construct nest in palms and other trees. The female builds a nest which is an open cup of grass lined with Spanish moss, wool, leaves, feathers, or other soft materials. She lays two to four eggs which she incubates for 13 days with the young edging when they are 14 to 16 days old. Fledglings that fall into the water can swim for short distances by using their wings as paddles. During the Breeding Bird Atlas 1 Survey 25 years ago, Boat-tailed Grackles were con rmed breeding birds in inland Florida. The Breeding Bird Atlas Survey (2012-2016) is underway. To help document the breeding birds or to participate in a morning survey during July in Hendry or Glades County, contact Margaret England. You are invited to join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers for free birding trips to STA5 located 20 miles south of Clewiston on Saturday morning July 14 or Aug. 18.

Do you know the person w ho could be saving your life?BY JESSICA SCHULTZ e SunQ: What is your name? A: J.R. Scarso. (How did you get your name?) The letters in my name stand for my rst and middle initial. When I was a kid I had it written on my backpack and kids just started calling me JR. It kind of just stuck. Q: What do you do and why do you do i t? A: It's a long story but I can sum it up. I started off in the military; I'm still in the military, but back then I was active duty military. I had something happen in my life and it made me passionate about doing whatever I could to save somebody from the jaws of death. I've seen a couple things overseas. When you're a kid and you go through something like that and you come home, I ended up holding a child in my hands, and it kind of changed my life. It was a major in uence on what I wanted to do career-wise. Later on I became a Christian and I felt that it was in God's will for me to do this. When I came back, I became a re ghter and paramedic and I stayed in the active reserve. I feel like this is my life's purpose. It's the greatest job in the world. Q: What is your pet peeve? A: When people abuse 9-1-1. Anybody who calls 911 we're gonna treat them as if it is a true emergency because we never know. But unfortunately, there are people that call for ridiculous things. There was somebody who called once because he ran out of nasal spray. We've had people call for everything from a stubbed toe to something like that. We're gonna take them to the hospital. While we're transporting to the hospital, it's about a 30 minute turnaround time. While I'm going down to Lakeside Medical Center, if somebody goes into cardiac arrest or if there's a re or somebody needs rescuing, that's the whole point of a rescue, not only to transport patients but to rescue. That's about my only pet peeve ... that and paperwork. I've tried everything I could in life to get away from paperwork, but no matter what I do, can't get away from it. Q: What are you afraid of? A: I can't say I'm afraid of death because I'm obviously not. I fell out of an aircraft the other week and struck a power pole and got wrapped up in the power lines. It was a training exercise. That kind of scared me when I was heading for those power lines and not knowing what was gonna happen. I turned out to be okay. It was a night jump and when you jump, you jump with a whole bunch of combat gear. I jumped out of the aircraft and my parachute was twisted, and that's easy to x. But here I am skimming through the air and I turned into the wind. I remember thinking to myself: "I just jumped out of an aircraft, I'm falling through the sky, and out of all things to hit, I hit a pole that's two feet in diameter. That was the last thing that scared me, let's put it that way. And when I get a call for a child. That's prett y scary. It sounds mean, but the rst thing I wann a hear is the kid cry. When the kid's crying it means the kid's okay; he's breathing, he's conscious, all that kind of stuff. But those pediatric calls scare the hell out of me. I had a kid a while ago, special needs child, probably about one-year-old. She had a tracheostomy. They had some equipment failure. When we got there she had a very high fever and she was looking pretty bad. Kind of hard to talk about. She's okay, she lived. Q: If you could choose a single person to spend your last moments of life with, who would you want by your side and why? A: I don't think I would want anybody b y my side because it'd probably equal their death. (What would you like people to know about you?) That I did my best. I don't really think about dying much to be honest with you. I think about living. But I hope to go to my grave feeling content with everything I did. I don't want to go there wishing I had more time. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 E-Z In-Store Financing Available 5000btu—18,000btu Sale prices starting at only $159.95 All on sale and in stock now. Are You Ready For The Summer Heat? Summer A/C Sale!! 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 5, 2012 A Pair of What?BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchA Paraprosdokian is not two Prosdokians nor is it one of the lost books of the Bible. It took me a while to be able to pronounce it, much more to gure out what it was. For those who don't know, a paraprosdokian is a sentence which consists of two parts. The rst is a gure of speech and the second an intriguing variation of the rst. It is a phrase that intentionally leads us down the garden path that misleads us into thinking one way, then suddenly ends on an unexpected twist. "Where there's a will, I want to be in it," is a paraprosdokian. Given my line of work as a pastor, I really could relate to this one: "Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car." Yes, it's kind of humorous, but when you stop and think about it, there's a lot of truth in it! We don't become something different just by entering into an enclosed space like a garage or a church. Let's take it further. The parts of a car do not become a car just by sitting in a garage. The parts have to be systematically assembled by a higher intelligence, whether in a garage or a factory. It doesn't happen automatically. Likewise, a child entering into a school building does not automatically become a scholar just because he or she is in the building. It takes listening to the teacher, studying, and even being tested on the material. So back to a person entering a church building. We might chuckle at the paraprosdokian, but many people would at least subconsciously de ne a person as a Christian simply because he or she attends worship services inside a church building. As we come into a building where church services are being conducted, we do not magically become a Christian. We must listen to the messages presented and respond much like a student in a classroom. Becoming a Christian is a process that begins with an awareness that we need to connect with our God personally. As we act on that awareness, we begin the process of becoming a Christian, a follower of Christ. For those who love the philosophy of ambiguity, as well as the idiosyncrasies of English, here are some further paraprosdokians that I've gathered from various sources: 1) Don't argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. 2) The early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese. 3) You don't need a parachute to skydive. You need a parachute only to skydive twice. 4) You're never too old to learn something stupid. 5) I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather, not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car. 6) Don't de ne your world in black and white, because there's so much hiding in the grey. 7) Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine. 8) Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others whenever they go. 9) Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them sh. 10) Evening news is where they begin with "Good Evening", and then proceed to tell you why it isn't. And remember, knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad! Religion Column John Hicks Summer Interview Series: J.R.

Even with Tropical Storm Debby dousing the Kissimmee region north of Lake Okeechobee, J une rainfall was about average across the South Florida Water Management District’s (SFWMD) 16-county region, District meteorologists reported this week. “Tropical Storm Debby just missed giving us the 20-plus inches of rainfall seen in North Florida,” said Susan Sylvester, SFWMD Chief of the W ater Control Operations Bureau. “Overall, we had a typical June in our area, and because of an early start to the wet season, water levels are consistent with where they should be this time of year.” Tropical Storm Debby played an integral role in June’s rainfall totals, but much of the District south of Kissimmee was on the periphery of the storm. The District-wide average for the storm w as 2.8 inches, with agricultural areas directly south of the lake averaging 1.7 inches. Based on District weather records, the geographic distribution of June rainfall this year was unusual. Typically, the Kissimmee region experiences lower rainfall totals than areas south of Lake Okeechobee. The storm helped reverse the typical trend. June is usually South Florida’s w ettest month. Dry conditions following the storm led to little rainfall over the last few days of the month. June’s rainfall District-wide was 7.46 inches, or 90 percent of the historical average. The Kissimmee region, followed by eastern Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties, had the highest rainfall totals in the District: Upper Kissimmee received 12.18 inches of rain, representing 4.64 inches above the average, or 162 percent of the historical average for this time of year. Eastern Miami-Dade County received 8.72 inches of rain, representing 0.43 inches below the average, or 95 percent of the historical average for this time of year. Eastern Palm Beach County received 7.49 inches of rain, representing 0.71 inches below the average, or 91 percent of the historical average for this time of year. The Southwest Coast, Caloosahatchee, Big Cypress and the Water Conservation Areas were all below average for the month. The region encompassing eastern Collier and Lee counties had the largest rainfall de cit with 6.72 inches, representing 67 percent of the average, or a de cit of 3.27 inches. The 2012 wet season began early on May 7, but rainfall totals so far have been tempered by several multi-day dry periods wedged in between heavy downpours and Tropical Storm Debby. District-wide, 13.54 inches of rain have fallen, representing 1.95 inches more rainfall than average, or 117 percent of the average for this time of year. Above-average rain, however, did not fall across the entire region. As in June, the Kissimmee area has received the most rainfall to date for the 2012 wet season. A majority of the east coast, from St. Lucie to Miami-Dade counties has experienced above average rainfall. The Southwest Coast, including Naples and Fort Myers, has lagged slightly behind, with only 85 percent of the average for this time of year. Lake Okeechobee, the backup water supply for Florida’s lower east coast, is at 12.03 feet NGVD today. This is 1.41 feet below average for this time of year. The lake and surrounding area received 7.10 inches of rainfall in June, representing 0.12 inches above the average, or 102 percent of the historical average for this time of year. Currently, the U.S. Drought Monitor shows a majority of the state has come out of drought conditions. Only a small portion of the Southwest Coast, including Collier County, and portions of Northwest Florida remain in abnormally dry conditions. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 16 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 5, 2012 rious illness that would keep you from having that opportunity, it puts things in perspective. Over 30 years ago I was faced with a serious Melanoma. I really committed myself to being granted the opportunity to come to work, so I’m glad to come to work. Q: What is your pet peeve? A: People not doing their job. People not doing what they’re supposed to do. From the smallest of issues to the largest. From emptying a garbage can to answering a call. You know we’re here to do a job. Q: What are you afraid of? A: I don’t know that I’m afraid of anything. I’m not afraid of deal, I deal with death. Maybe I’m afraid of not enjoying my retirement. Q: If you could choose a single person to spend your last moments of life with, who would you want by your side and why? A: I think I’d have to pick my husband. He wouldn’t hear me because he’d be crying the whole time. But I would express to him how I would want him to share with the rest of my family how proud I am of them for being such wonderful, outstanding citizens and Christians. Ho w proud I am of them and how much they mean to me.

A library administrator at the Belle Glade Library since 1978, Ms. Lilley is reporting that she and staff are excited. Slattery & Associates Inc., no stranger to library projects throughout the county, designed the library, with The Weitz Company handling the construction project. The project has been in one stage or another for more than four years now, but work is moving along at a healthy pace now. Construction started in November, and is expected to be completed at or near the end of the year. According to Ms. Lilley, all is still set to go for the library’s public opening in early spring of 2013. Returning from her trip out to see the construction work, Ms. Lilley says, “It does look impressive.” LIBRARYContinued  1 June is ‘Average Joe’ Despite Tropical Storm Debby
