Arrestspage 9SEE REHAB  14 GLADES DAY EDGES MIAMIPACE FOR ROAD WIN; PAHOKEE’S OPENER CANCELLEDBY NAJI TOBIAS e SunThere’s a rst time for everything. Glades Central received a tough lesson on that after its road game against Dwyer was complete. In the Raiders 30-9 loss to the Panthers on Aug. 31, it was pretty clear from the start which team was the better one. Aside from a 47-yard touchdown pass from Glades Central senior quarterback T.J. Abrams to senior wide receiver Yvesner Ferdinand (4 catches, 94 yards) in the third quarter, the Raiders couldn’t get much done on offense. The third quarter touchdown cut Dwyer’s lead to 15-9 at that point. Inmates Graduate from PBSO Sponsored Drug Rehab Program, “Another Way”BY AMANDA RAMOSGUY e SunSome people take their high school diplomas for granted – oftentimes keeping them stowed away and forgotten. It is dif cult to imagine that that will be the case for the 14 diplomas awarded through the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce drug rehab program recently. It was a special graduation for the 14 inmates graduating from the rehab program, called “Another Way,” on Thursday, Aug. 30. On the whiteboard of the room were the graduation took place were quips written to encourage and challenge program participants: “There is a difference between wishing for recovery and being ready to receive it.” “No one is ready for recovery until he believes he can acquire it.” David Gilbert, Unit Manager for Another Way, opened the ceremony Glades Central Loses to Dwyer For First Time They Call it ‘Another Way’ but I Call it ‘Another Chance’ Announcement of grant from the state to be made, says directorBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunIn the immediate wake of the Storm of 1928, a storm that also killed thousands of people on its trajectory through the Caribbean Islands and Puerto Rico, surviving residents and state of cials arrived to the areas around Belle Glade, South Bay, Pahokee and Canal Point to a ghastly scene of decimated towns and bodies strewn across roads, inside homes, and around the agriculture elds of the day. As the natural effect of decomposition began to set in, the workers scrambled to recover the bodies and bury them. Thousands of people had perished. As the director of the Port Mayaca Memorial Gardens, Art Ivester still elds questions about the Storm of 1928 that took the lives of mostly migrant Glades workers. One of the bigger questions surrounding Port Mayaca and its connection to that fateful day is exactly how many people who died from the resulting ooding were actually buried at that site. Mr. Ivester latches on to the idea that about 1,600 people – men, women and children – were buried at the site. There is little other information to justify the number, or even how the mass burials were conducted. The number is in question, and a recently awarded grant may be just the thing to nd out the answer. “We’re going to nd out,” said Mr. Ivester. According to him, an announcement is scheduled to be made at this year’s Remembrance of the Storm Lingering Question About Storm of 1928 to be Answered?SEE FOOTBALL  6 SEE STORM  14 SUBMITTED PHOTOIn the wake of the Storm of 1928, workers arrived to nd a monumental task ahead of them: what to do with the many people who died in the tragic storm.

According to preliminary estimates* released by VISIT FLORIDA the state’s of cial tourism marketing corporation – 22.1 million visitors came to Florida in the second quarter of 2012 (April-June), an increase of 1.3 percent over the same period in 2011. Direct travel-related employment in Florida also rose 1.1 percent to 1,041,900, adding 11,300 jobs since this time one year ago and representing the largest employment total since rst quarter 2008. “It’s encouraging to see continued growth in the state’s top industry,” said Governor Rick Scott. “With more growth comes more jobs, and as a leading driver of our rebounding economy, VISIT FLORIDA and the entire Florida tourism industry are poised to make the Sunshine State the No. 1 travel destination in the world.” Tourism and recreation taxable sales for Florida from January through May 2012 (last reported month) were $31.5 billion, representing a yearover-year increase of 8.8 percent over the same period in 2011. The average daily room rate rose 3.6 percent and the occupancy rate for Florida hotels increased 2.0 percentage points in Q2 2012 compared to Q2 2011. “These are very positive indicators for Florida tourism and the state as a whole,” said Glenn Hastings, Chairman of the VISIT FLORIDA Board of Directors and Executive Director of the St. Johns County Tourist Development Council. “Increased visitation and spending by travelers to the state have fueled 27 straight months of job growth. More than one million Floridians are now employed in the tourism industry – a number we are proud to see steadily increasing as Florida is on pace for another record year.” An estimated 18.8 million domestic visitors came to Florida during the second quarter of 2012, representing a 0.3 percent increase from the same period in 2011. Florida experienced a 10 percent increase in overseas visitors with 2.4 million in Q2 2012 compared to Q2 2011. “In an increasingly competitive domestic and international marketplace, it has proven to be vital for the Florida tourism industry to work together to keep the Sunshine State top of mind with our potential visitors,” said Chris Thompson, President and CEO of VISIT FLORIDA. “The record growth we’ve seen is directly attributable to the commitment of our hospitality industry employees, the strength of Florida’s tourism product, and the creative and strategic marketing efforts being implemented by VISIT FLORIDA and our partners statewide.” BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonSeptember 15th marks the 7th year that Hendry Glades Audubon has participated in the Florida Fall North American Migration Count (NAMC). The area of a count is not a circle, but the boundaries of a County. The idea is to have a contiguous interlocking set of non-overlapping counts across North America. Volunteers will be using various modes of travel including cars, bicycles, or be on foot during their search for birds. Join a team or count at other locations. The following teams, who will be meeting at 7 a.m., need additional counters, compilers and photographers: STA5, Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest, or Lakeport Area. Contact Margaret England for copy of the report form or to volunteer to help a team or survey from your home for an hour or more on Sept. 15. Most of the teams will be surveying wetland areas where they will identify birds by sight or sound. Reports of migrating and resident birds found in other habitats are needed in order to get a more accurate snapshot of the birds in inland Florida including the Northern Flicker. This common Florida Bird lives in open habitats near trees, including pine and mixed woodlands and residential areas. Northern Flickers are a fairly large woodpecker that is smaller than Pileated Woodpeckers and larger than other Florida woodpeckers. They have a slim rounded head, slightly downcurved bill, fairly long tail, and broad wings. The feathers located on the undersides of the wing and tail of the eastern birds is bright yellow. Their brown plumage is patterned with black spots, bars and crescents. The oldest known Northern Flicker lived to be at least nine years and two months old. Northern Flickers’ calls can be loud rolling rattles or a loud single-note “kyeer”. They also make quiet, rhythmic “wick-a, wick-a” sounds when they are close together or displaying. They forage mainly on the ground for insects, especially ants and beetles. This Flicker’s long tongue can snag prey about two inches beyond the end of its bill. Their diet can also include fruit and seeds, especially in the winter. Breeding pair will work together to excavate a nest cavity in dead or diseased tree trunks or large branches in about 12 days between late March and June. They often reuse cavities that they or other species used in previous years. Their nest cavity is 13 to 16 inches deep with a 3-inch diameter entrance hole. The female lays 5 to 8 eggs in the nest cavity that are incubated for 11 to 12 days with the young edging in 25 to 28 days. You are invited to join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers for birding trips to Stormwater Treatment Area 5 (STA5) at the new Deer Fence Trailhead located 29 miles south of Clewiston on Sept. 15 during the NAMC or Oct. 13 during an escorted trip. Photographers, groups and families are welcome to participate in the free trips. For reservations contact Margaret England at sta5birding@ embarqmail.com or call 863-674-0695 or 863517-0202. Visit the HGAS website at www.hendrygladesaudubon.org for the 2012-2013 STA5 schedule and map and directions to the STA5 Deer Fence Trailhead.

Serving the area for over 30 years! 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 6, 2012 BY RANDY SMITH SFWMDSince the onslaught of Tropical Storm Isaac ve days ago, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) has moved more than 25 billion gallons of water in western Palm Beach County, which was heavily inundated with rainfall during the storm. The agency's Emergency Operation Center remains fully activated, and emergency operations continue to provide ood relief to communities hit hardest by the 1-in-100-year storm event. "The District's ood control pumps and infrastructure were operating at maximum capacity to move huge volumes of water through the regional system during and after the event," said Tommy Strowd, SFWMD Director of Operations, Maintenance and Construction. "With areas of western Palm Beach County receiving more than a foot of rain over a three day period, water managers moved water at record rates to reduce the impacts of ooding."Stormwater VolumeBased on radar rainfall estimates, up to 14.85 inches of rain fell over 72 hours in an area of western Palm Beach County known as the C-51 Basin, encompassing communities that include Royal Palm Beach, Loxahatchee Groves and the Acreage. Since Monday, water managers moved 25 billion gallons of water in the C-51 Basin in response to the storm, enough to ll 38,000 Olympic-size swimming pools. At the peak of storm response, the C-51 canal was moving 9,600 cubic-feet of water per second, the highest rate ever recorded. The C-51 Basin covers 100,000 acres, one-quarter the size of Lake Okeechobee. In addition to the regional system's permanent pumps moving water through the primary canal system, the District also deployed nine temporary pumps in western Palm Beach County to help alleviate ood conditions in the Acreage and Deer Run communities.RainfallIn a boost for recovery efforts, the most heavily impacted areas received little to no rainfall in the past 24 hours. District meteorologists are forecasting below-average rainfall through the Labor Day weekend, further allowing ood waters to drain without additional in ows. With one day left in the month, August rainfall to-date for the Palm Beach County area was 16.18 inches. This is double, or approximately 8.64 inches more rainfall, than the average for the month. The C-51 Basin received 27 percent of its average annual rainfall in the four days of rainfall associated with Tropical Storm Isaac. Eastern Broward, Miami-Dade, Martin and St. Lucie counties, the Lower Kissimmee Basin and Lake Okeechobee all received above-average rainfall for the month. Regional Flood ControlThe South Florida Water Management District operates and maintains the regional water management system known as the Central and Southern Florida Project, which was authorized by Congress more than 60 years ago to protect residents and businesses from oods and droughts. The regional water management system is comprised of more than 1,600 miles of canals, 1,000 miles of levees/berms, 1,300 water control structures and 64 pump stations. During the past ve years, the District has invested approximately $240 million to maintain the region's ood control infrastructure and ensure it operates at optimal capacity. SFWMD Continues Moving Historic Magnitude of Water Crossword Puzzle Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have not moved in the past week, averaging $3.77/g on Sunday. This compares with the national average that has increased 1.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.80/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 17.2 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 25.1 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 20.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 12.9 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. "With the conclusion of the summer driving season, we can expect gasoline prices to go on a diet," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Like all diet programs, you may not see immediate loss in the short term, but we'll likely see some loss in the longer term, say the next several weeks, as factors align in motorists favorspeci cally as Isaac has exited without much ado, demand to see seasonal decline, and with cheaper to produce winter-spec higher RVP gasoline coming, there's light at the end of the tunnel," DeHaan said.

But Glades Central would get no closer on the scoreboard, as the Panthers (1-0) reeled off 15 straight points to close the game out. Glades Central (0-1) did have an early lead on Dwyer, however. That was courtesy of a 22yard eld goal by sophomore Giovanni Lugo to give the Raiders a 3-2 lead heading into the second quarter. Other than that and a fourth-quarter interception caught by senior triple-threat Will Likely there really were no more highlights for Glades Central. "Overall, our team performance was bad," said Abrams, who went 15-for-29 passing with 218 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. "We didn't do enough to win this game, plain and simple." Down 15-9 in the fourth and coming off an end-zone pick caught by Likely, Glades Central's ensuing offensive possession ended rather quickly, as Abrams, who also lost a fumble in the game, threw an interception to Dwyer senior defensive back De'Andre Bozeman with 7:01 left. Bozeman's pick set up the game-winner a few plays later, which was a 1-yard touchdown run from Dwyer quarterback Clay Meister (6-for14 passing, 83 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT) with 5:12 left. Dwyer, up 23-9 at that point, would score once more less than two minutes later, thanks to a 38-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Rob Nittolo to junior wide receiver Ezra Saffold (4 catches, 90 yards, 2 TD) with 3:59 left. Glades Central's quest to win its seventh straight game against Dwyer was nished from there. Game over. "Hats off to them," Glades Central second year head coach Roosevelt Blackmon said of Dwyer, a team that scored its rst ever win over the Raiders. Glades Central's next game is a road matchup with Plantation, scheduled for Friday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. Glades Day 28, Miami-Monsignor Pace 23: Kelvin Taylor's 314 rushing yards and three touchdowns powered Glades Day (1-0) to a season-opening win on the road. Glades Day's next game is its home opener with Highlands Christian, scheduled for Friday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. Pahokee vs. Royal Palm Beach – CANCELLED: Pahokee's season opener, scheduled to be played at Anquan Boldin Stadium, was cancelled due to ooded eld conditions. Since it's a non-district game, the matchup between these two teams won't be made up. Pahokee has a huge game this week, as it plays a District 7-3A game at home against Cardinal Newman (West Palm Beach). The Week 2 contest, scheduled for Friday, Sept. 7 at 7:30 p.m., will go a long way in determining whether or not Pahokee can make the playoffs for the rst time since 2009. We'll know after tomorrow night's game where Pahokee stands as far as the playoff picture is concerned. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 6, 2012 After a mixed-bag of rainfall for much of the summer, the month of August was characterized by periods of widespread heavy rainfall. Most of the eastern metro region of South Florida received anywhere from 10 to 20 inches of rain, with another area of over 10 inches over western sections of Collier and Hendry counties. Of the 31 sites that report daily rainfall over mainland South Florida, all but ve reported monthly rainfall in excess of 10 inches. Two locations, Palm Beach Gardens and West Palm Beach, exceeded 20 inches for the month. Tropical Storm Isaac was responsible for much of this rainfall, but heavy rain fell on several other days in August as South Florida was under a predominantly moist southerly wind ow resulting from lower atmospheric pressure over the eastern half of the United States. According to the South Florida Water Management District, it was the 5th wettest August for the district since 1932 (Note: the district includes areas north and northeast of Lake Okeechobee not covered by NWS Miami). In areas where summer rainfall was copious even before August, particularly over the east coast metro, year-to-date rainfall is on pace to break the all-time record for a calendar year. These locations include Miami International Airport (68.48 inches as of 8/31), Miami Beach (48.34 inches) and The Redland (63.54 inches). West Palm Beach is on pace for their secondwettest year on record (61.47 inches).TemperaturesThe increased cloud cover and rainfall played a big role in keeping temperatures near to slightly below normal during August. This is a continuation of the temperature patterns observed since the beginning of the rainy season in May.Outlook and HazardsThe long-range outlook by the Climate Prediction Center for the rest of September calls for equal chances of above, below or near normal precipitation and temperatures. Long-range models such as the CFS call for drier-than-normal conditions through September and extending into October. This re ects the typically-high amount of uncertainty in long-range outlooks. Considering that September ranks as one of the wetter months of the year, this still means we'll see areas of locally heavy rain which is typical of the time of year. September in South Florida means that tropical cyclones are a possibility. September ranks second behind October as the month in which South Florida has been directly hit by hurricanes, and is the month of greatest MAJOR hurricane strikes. While South Florida did not experience major wind impacts from Isaac last month, the severe ooding experienced in some areas was a stark reminder that tropical cyclones bring more than one type of threat. Make sure you are prepared for the peak of hurricane season by ensuring that personal and business hurricane plans are in place. Go to ready.gov for information and preparedness checklists.

Record Breaking Wet August Hendry Regional’s patient room renovationsBY GLENDA WILSON HRMCHendry Regional is upgrading a number of its patient rooms, and the hospital foundation has pitched in to help. Through community donations, the HRMC Foundation has provided $60,000 towards this project. Room renovations include: New wood tone, rolled vinyl oorings, designed for effective infection control Textured and painted walls New plumbing xtures Renovated bathrooms, which include tile ooring, walls, and showers Marbled window sills New lighting throughout Beautiful cabinets to include wardrobes and vanities (with corian surfaces) New air-conditioners and heating units New state-of-the-art beds "A patient's room in a hospital becomes their home away from home for the duration of their stay. Nursing embraces the physical environment as fundamental in the healing process. Rooms that are quiet, have natural light, comfort, and reduced noise contribute to holistic nursing care and subsequent healing. Our rooms will provide a family centered care space that will assist in the healing process," said Sandi Viall, Chief Nursing Of cer at Hendry Regional Medical Center. The HRMC Foundation has established naming opportunities for those interested in donating $15,000 for a patient room (now includes a new $7,500 patient bed). These donations may be paid by a one-time gift or through yearly installments of $3,000 for ve years, or $5,000 for three years. Several donor plaques are visible on room doors where individuals, civic organizations and businesses have already named rooms through their individual donations. When presenting the check to the hospital, Steve Nisbet, Foundation Chairman and Hospital Trustee, recognized the generosity of donors, "The foundation members would like to thank all the people in our community who have made this project possible through their contributions to the HRMC Foundation," he said. Visitors are welcome to stop by the foundation and ask to see one of the renovated patient rooms. If you're interested in naming a room or for more information, please contact the Hendry Regional Medical Center Foundation at 863-9832735.

The city of Pahokee, which maintains the site, and the East Stuart Historical Society will be announcing a grant awarded by the state of Florida for ground penetrating radar to be performed at the location. While the technology certainly cannot pinpoint the number of bodies, it can attest to the magnitude of any burial, mass or minor, at the location. In the fevered rush to bury the bodies, there was little in the way of systematic recordkeeping to account for all who perished, or even where they may have been buried. “This will show if something happened there,” said Mr. Ivester. “The state liked the idea, and we will determine once and for all if something happened here. We’re excited, no matter what.” In the meantime, the remembrance event will continue. A tradition that celebrated major milestones, including the storm’s 60th anniversary, and later it’s 75th and 80th, has now become a yearly event. Amateur historians make the trek to the little spot in Port Mayaca each year to recall the events of that September day 84 years ago. A wall of photos is displayed that shows the various scenes in the wake of the storm. Plans by the city and the historical society are to mount a permanent structure at the location. The public is invited to attend the event, which begins at 10 a.m. on September 14. Port Mayaca Memorial Gardens is located on Highway 76 in Port Mayaca. For more information, call 561-924-2362.

He said, “I am proud of the men who somehow found the strength to separate themselves from the general population and commit themselves to becoming drug free.” Another Way is a 60-day rehabilitation program that provides education on substance abuse, cravings, triggers, relapse prevention, and criminal and addictive thinking. PBSO introduced the program to the male inmates in September 2011 and made it available to the female population this past May. While the program is offered by PBSO, it is strictly voluntary. One female graduate was chosen to address the other graduates and audience. She described the program as a gift lled with hope, accountability, and gratitude. Graduates were given the opportunity to convey their thoughts regarding the program; some joked while others spoke somberly. One graduate who joked about completing the program said that society should be as happy as he is because now their possessions will be safe; another was as shocked that he completed the goal as the jail’s SWAT team probably was. The program was not easy for those who enrolled; many had to learn ways to cope with their emotional state in ways that shunned drug use. “Everybody told me to stop using drugs but I didn’t know how,” said one graduate. Still another said, “I was bored, I got high; I was mad, I got high; I was hurt, I got high. Now I know how to handle my emotions.” One inmate spoke of his journey spanning four states, 49 years, and a previous attempt to live drug free, only to end up in Belle Glade. “They call it ‘Another Way’ but I call it ‘Another Chance’ because they have given me another chance to be clean,” he said. Also, present at the graduation were three members who graduated the year before. They came to offer words of encouragement and advice to new graduates. One man stressed the importance of remaining in contact with his support group; he said, “I have more numbers in my phone for support members than I ever did for drug dealers.” As Ronnie Campbell, program director, came to close the ceremony, it was obvious the love and respect the graduates had for him. They began cheering for him and chanting his name. He spoke to them with words of tough love. “We want it our way; we can’t have it our way. That’s how you messed your lives up by doing it your way,” he told them, encouraging them to stay on the right track. Amid the jokes and the thanks came the evening’s most poignant moment: One of the youngest graduates that day was a man who stared at his certi cate, and wiped tears from his eyes as he spoke: “I am 18 years old. I should be graduating from my senior year not from drug rehab.” REHABContinued  1 WANT TO SUBMIT NEWS? events? | photos? | tips? | stories? Send us an e-mail at sunnews@newszap.com

Sell it sooner in the classifieds These days, 60 is the new 40. A few worry lines and gray hairs aren’t stopping baby boomers from staying active and rede ning retirement. But along with the bene ts of active lifestyles, older Americans are feeling the pains of “boomeritis,” as the warranty on some body parts runs low. One body part signi cantly affected as we age is the eye. For some, this means holding the newspaper at arm’s length, or giving up night driving. Yet, many overlook eye health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only half the estimated 61 million adults at high risk for serious vision loss visited an eye care professional in the last year. Fortunately, you can protect your eyes, and even reverse signs of eye aging with a few simple steps. Everyone 50 or older should get yearly comprehensive eye exams. This allows for detection of eye diseases in early stages, before you experience vision problems, some of which may be permanent. Adults over 50 should be mindful of symptoms of common age-related eye diseases, such as cataracts, the leading cause of reversible blindness in the U.S. Blurry vision and needing more light to read even while wearing glasses can be early signs. With a cataract, the eye’s lens becomes cloudy, allowing less light to pass through, making vision blurry. In early stages, symptoms may not hold you back, but vision may worsen as the cataract grows. It’s important to get examined as soon as you notice changes in vision, even if they seem minor. In later stages, you may experience poor night vision, colors looking dull, dif culty with glares or halos, and double vision. Cataracts are more treatable than ever. That’s good news, considering half of all Americans will be diagnosed with cataracts by age 80. “In the U.S. alone, cataract affects over 24 million Americans 40 and older,” says Richard J. Mackool, M.D., director, Mackool Eye Institute, and senior attending surgeon, New York Eye and Ear Institute. About 3 million people have cataracts removed in the U.S. each year, making it one of the most common procedures. The eye’s cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an arti cial intraocular lens (IOL). Traditional IOLs can correct distance vision, but new advanced technology IOLs can also help correct pre-existing eye conditions like astigmatism and age-related presbyopia. These new IOLs can potentially eliminate the need for glasses. Baby boomers don’t have to accept deteriorating vision as a natural part of aging and give up favorite hobbies. “Cataract removal has a very high success rate. Most people can return to normal routines within 24 hours,” notes Dr. Mackool. Seniors should talk to their doctors and visit the National Institutes of Health National Eye Institute website, www.nei.nih.gov, to learn about cataracts and treatment options. Keep an Eye on Your Eye Health We are not alone.Theres a wonderful world around us. Full of fascinating places. Interesting people. Amazing cultures. Important challenges. But sadly, our kids are not getting the chance to learn about their world. When surveys show that half of Americas youth cannot locate India or Iraq on a map, then we have to wonder what they do know about their world. Thats why we created MyWonderfulWorld.org.
