BY AMANDA RAMOSGUY e SunSitting in the passenger’s seat of a patrol car is much different from sitting in a civilian car watching what the of cer is doing. The passenger’s seat offers a bird’s eye view of the daily activities, challenges, and blatant disregard that ofcers face. I recently had the opportunity to ride along with a PBSO deputy and the information I learned was very different from what I thought I knew about their job. Each shift starts with “Roll Call” where the deputies discuss matters from the previous shift; topics may range from strategies of dealing with certain problems to the new problems that have surfaced and must be dealt with. Once “Roll Call” is complete, the deputies begin their shift with information to make his/her shift safer for everyone. Shifts with a “ride-along” are much different. The deputy announces to everyone on shift that there is a “ridealong” present. This was somewhat embarrassing but it was for my safety. My safety was now no longer the sole responsibility of the deputy I was riding with but it became the responsibility all of the deputies’ on the shift. Within ve minutes of beginning the shift, drivers were already being pulled for traf c violations. Many violations are overlooked by the deputies but only if they are minor infractions. Throughout the three hours of my ride, Deputy Rivera began pointing out numerous violations of the law from jaywalking to stopping past the line of a stop sign. He said, “Look at all these people breaking traf c laws. I am well within my right to ticket them but what’s the point? In tough times it’s even harder to pay a ticket. If they don’t pay it, their license will be suspended and they’ll be in a worse situation than before. So unless it’s putting people in danger, I don’t bother them.” “My job is traf c enforcement, DUI, crashes, and taking calls; some of the other guys are on calls and some are on certain neighborhoods.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 20, 2012 Though laurel wilt remains a top concern for Florida avocado growers, a new University of Florida study is cause for some relief – the disease is unlikely to be spread via fruit or seeds from infected trees. Researchers found that the pathogen, a fungus with the scienti c name Raffaelea lauricola, does not colonize avocado fruit, said Randy Ploetz, a plant pathology professor at UF’s Tropical Research and Education Center in Homestead, part of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Furthermore, the insect responsible for transmitting the pathogen doesn’t infest avocado fruit, either. Known as the redbay ambrosia beetle, the pest dwells only in the xylem of the avocado tree trunk, he said. The ndings mean avocado fruit and seeds produced in Florida are unlikely to pose a threat of laurel wilt transmission when shipped to other U.S. states or foreign countries. “Without the beetle, the chances of transmission are extremely remote,” Ploetz said. The study appears in the September issue of Journal of Phytopathology. Funding for the research was provided by the UF/IFAS dean for research. The U.S. is the eighth largest avocado producing nation worldwide; Florida is the second-largest avocado producing state, after California. Laurel Wilt Disease Not Spread by Fruit PHOTO / UFThe disease laurel wilt threatens Florida’s avocado industry, second-largest in the nation. But a new University of Florida study provides some good news: the pathogen responsible for laurel wilt is unlikely to be transmitted via fruit or seeds from infected avocado trees. Curious children will put anything in their mouths. But many household items can be deadly when swallowed. One of the most dangerous hidden hazards for children is powerful magnets. Unlike those typically found on refrigerators, magnets in children’s toys and even in desk toys marketed for adults can be extremely powerful. When swallowed, these magnets can attract one another internally, resulting in serious injuries, such as small holes in the stomach and intestines, intestinal blockage, blood poisoning and even death. “It’s critical to educate children, adolescents, and their parents about keeping small, powerful magnets out of young children’s hands and mouths,” said Robert W. Block, MD, FAAP, 20112012 president of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). While the Consumer Product Safety Commission has worked with the toy industry to pass standards to prevent magnets from detaching from toys, parents should always check toys for magnets to ensure that if present, they are secure. Discard any toys that cannot be xed and never let children under 6 play unsupervised with magnetic toys. Products labeled for users age 14 and up do not have to comply with the toy safety standard, so parents must be especially vigilant about keeping them well out of children’s reach. Teach your children never to put magnets in their mouths. According to the AAP, common abdominal symptoms, such as pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea could be a sign magnets were swallowed. Be sure to seek medical attention immediately if these symptoms occur. Magnets aren’t the only items children are putting in their mouths. In 2010, more than 3,400 children swallowed lithium button batteries, according to the National Capital Poison Center. Tears in the esophagus and internal bleeding are some of the common injuries associated with swallowing batteries. Keep loose and spare batteries locked away and store any product that uses button batteries out of reach. In addition, child-proof your medicine cabinet. It’s easy to mistake a dangerous pill for a delicious piece of candy. Lock away your medicine and throw out any old and unnecessary pills. If you suspect your child ingested medication, call Poison Help immediately: 1-800-222-1222. A child’s curiosity can be dangerous. Take the necessary precautions to prevent these situations and be sure you are prepared for anything. Keeping Kids Safe From Hidden Household Dangers

Pioneer Park Elementary Procedures in Place Hats off to Principal Adam Miller and Assistant Principal Denise Hall who brought us through the aftermath of Tropical Storm Isaac amid unexpected developments, including random roof leaks, power outages, and re alarm glitches. They were on hand to help all teachers with any needs upon return to the school. SBT, RTI & Progress Monitoring The SBT meetings in Principal Miller's conference room are buzzing with dedicated instructional teams carefully reviewing each student's current academic standing and needs. Our Reading Coach, Ms. Marie Jasmin visited teachers recently to assist with readying the LLI kits for reading groups. The instructional team determined which students would be included in these reading intensive small groups. LLI is designed to nurture and exponentially build students' literacy skills with a strongly structured foundation in all the reading skill components. A key element is the "take home" piece of the program. Home rereading of daily books in the series builds con dence, strengthens uency and comprehension, and fosters family bonding while giving parents a vital role in their child's reading growth. The Parent/Teacher Link Families, please be sure to check your child's or children's book bag(s) daily. You never know when your child may bring home a letter of parent/teacher communication, homework, or important school noti cations. Please be sure and ask your child if they brought home any homework, notes from the teacher or hand outs from school. Pioneer Park distributed uniforms, student agendas with school calendars and homework folders to each student. The folders are twosided. You can check one side for homework and the other for important daily behavior and/ or school information. Parent and guardian feedback and input is integral to student success.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 20, 2012 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Yellow-crowned Night Heron is a nocturnal heron of the southern swamps and coasts that can be found breeding along inland wetlands as far north as Indiana and Illinois and south to Peru and Brazil. They are scarcer than Blackcrowned Night Heron. Yellow-crowned Night Heron are a medium-sized stocky heron with a red iris. Adults have a black face and bill with a zebra–striped head pattern on gray. They have a gray body and yellow legs. While in breeding, the plumage on their legs becomes pink. Their yellowish crown stripe often appears white. Immature birds are brown with w hite spots on the wings and narrow streaks on their neck. The call, which is often heard overhead at night, is a loud harsh squawk. Foraging Yellow-crowned Night Heron stand still with their neck extended while slowly stalking their prey which is found along shorelines, elds and marshes. They are normally solitary hunters who keep 15 feet or more away from other individuals. Their diet consists mainly of crustaceans including crabs or cray sh. They also eat insects, sh, snails or worms and occasionally lizards, snakes, young birds, mice and small rabbits. From February to mid-June they nest in small mixed-heron colonies or alone in tall trees or shrubs near water where they are safe from predators. Both sexes build the nest that can be up to four feet across with a shallow depression inside for the eggs. As part of the pair-bonding process the female will stand on the nest site while the male brings her sticks and twigs. As the nest comes along she will join the male by gathering sticks and helping build the nest. It takes about 11 days to complete the nest which might be used for several years with the herons adding to them each year. The female lays three to four pale blue eggs which are incubated for 21 to 25 days. Both parents care for the young who edge in about 25 days. During the rst Breeding Bird Atlas Surve y only a few Yellow-crowned Night Heron were con rmed breeding on the west side of Lake Okeechobee.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 20, 2012 Florida is making marked progress when it comes to preparing students for college and careers according to a new study, http://achieve. org/ClosingtheExpectationsGap2012. The Closing the Expectation Gap 2012: 50State Progress Report from Achieve, an independent nonpro t education reform organization, shows that Florida is aligning policies and practice with the demands of college and careers. The report looks at progress on key college and career-ready policies, including how states match standards, graduation requirements, assessments, and data and accountability systems to the expectations of postsecondary institutions and employers. "In today's economy, jobs often demand speci c skills, and there can be a gap between what employers are seeking and the skills people have," said Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart. "Aligning Florida's college and career goals with employer needs helps prepare our students to pursue higher education and join the workforce." In 2005, Florida was one of 13 states to join the American Diploma Project, an effort to address low graduation rates and students graduating from high school unprepared for the demands of college and careers. Since then, the Achieve-sponsored initiative has grown to include 35 states. Achieve surveys all 50 states and the District of Columbia annually to assess states' progress toward meeting key college and career-ready goals intended to better prepare students for the future. Highlights of the Closing the Expectation Gap 2012: 50 State Progress Florida is making college and career readiness a priority for all students by adopting academic standards aligned with college and careerready expectations, adopting the Common Core State Standards, and by adding college and career expectations to graduation requirements. Florida is one of only 18 states assessing students while they are still in high school to address college and career readiness gaps and to determine higher education placement decisions. Additionally, Florida has identi ed a score on state assessments that identi es student college and career readiness. Florida's longitudinal data system satis es all ten essential Data Quality Campaign elements, providing a foundation for strong student-level data collection and use. New Report Notes Florida’s Progress Preparing Students for College and Careers Florida veterans wishing to enter the commercial shing industry may soon be able to do so more easily thanks to changes made at the Sept. 5-6 Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) meeting in Tampa. These changes are anticipated to take effect on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2012. The Commission implemented a new program that will modify income requirements for Florida veterans seeking a commercial restricted species endorsement license. The restricted species endorsement allows commercial harvesters to sh for and sell species that are designated as restricted. Spanish and king mackerel, ounder, shrimp, dolphin and several reef sh are among the list of species that require a restricted species endorsement. Currently, commercial harvesters attempting to qualify for a restricted species endorsement license must have a Florida Saltwater Products License, which is Florida's commercial saltwater shing license, and be able to attribute $5,000 or 25 percent of their total annual income during one of the past three years to sales of saltwater products. With the new changes in place, restricted species endorsement income requirements will be waived for one license year (July 1-June 30) for Florida veterans who were honorably discharged between Sept. 11, 2001, and June 30, 2014. After June 30, 2014, this income requirement waiver will continue to extend to Florida veterans so long as they apply within four years of an honorable discharge. The one-license-year waiver also extends to honorably discharged veterans with serviceconnected disabilities. After the one-year waiver expires, veterans with service-connected disabilities will have a reduced income requirement of $2,500 instead of $5,000. To qualify for these exemptions, veterans must be certi ed by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs or the United States Armed Forces to have at least a 10-percent disability that is service-connected.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 20, 2012 BY TIMOTHY SAENZIt had all the marks of a championship boxing match. Two heavyweights slugged it out at Cane Field on a sultry, sweaty South Florida Friday night. The Gators of Glades Day hurled gutbusting hooks to the body that took the form of a 253yard rushing attack: standout running back Kelvin Taylor running right around end, running left around end, running right around end, running left around end. The Clewiston Tigers red back with their own mix of head and body shots big runs from scrimmage that kicked up clods of grass and clumps of turf, two huge kickoff returns that included a 90-yard, straight ahead touchdown sprint from junior Derry West, an electrifying exploit that helped change the game, for better or worse. When the muggy air cleared after one quarter, the Tigers and the Gators were locked at 20-20. By the nal bell, however, Taylor's tale of touchdowns earned the Gators a decisive 49-34 victory over the Tigers. It was the second kickoff return a 55-yard bolt by Keith James that gave the Tigers a short eld at the Gator 25 and its result that would lead the Gators' think thank to change their kickoff tactics. On second and 9 after the run back, senior quarterback Tyler Clemmons hit senior wide receiver Cedric Bron for an 8-yard pickup. Senior running back Virthavious Robinson banged out four yards on the next play for a rst down at the 12. Senior running back DeMarcus Terry carried twice for 9 and 2 yards respectively and gave the Tigers a rst and goal at the 1. That set up junior running back Derry West's 1-yard plunge for the score. The extra point made it 20-20. Lady Luck does not seem to smile on Clewiston. The moment the Tigers do something well, she feels she has to counterbalance it. Earlier in the rst quarter, after West's brilliant kickoff return for a touchdown, the Tigers opted for a twopoint conversion try when a single extra point would have given them the lead. They didn't convert, and the Gators replied on their next possession with a Taylor 34-yard touchdown run that helped push them to a 20-13 lead. This time the Gators took advantage of circumstances to answer the Tigers' third tying touchdown. A short Clewiston kickoff landed in the hands of Gator Matt Hubbard, standing at his own 22. Hubbard scooted for 26 yards to his own 48. With the state's top running back and only 52 yards between it and pay dirt, Glades Day traversed the distance in a little over a minute. Taylor blazed for 8and 7-yards on two carries. Gator quarterback Josh Carr threw for 33 yards to Chris Stefenack. Taylor nished the drive when he ran into the end zone untouched from 2 yards out. He added a two-point conversion, and Glades Day was up, 28-20, in the second quarter. Battered by Clewiston's special teams, however, the Gators looked for a way to stem the Tigers' onslaught. They found their answer: a pooch kick. Alberto Garcia bounced one 11 yards to the Clewiston 49, and the Gators recovered it. A completed pass and a personal foul penalty set up the Gators at the Tiger 15. Three plays later, Taylor sped around the left side for a 19-yard touchdown. The extra point made it Glades Day 35, Clewiston 20. Clewiston punted for the rst time on its next possession, and the Gators' 19-yard return put them at their own 47 with a rst and 10. A series of ags followed, including a personal foul, late hit out of bounds call against the Tigers that gave Glades Day 10 yards. Taylor scored on a 26-yard run two plays later. With the extra point, Glades Day led, 42-20. The Tigers fell short on an opportunity to close the gap before the half ended. They had turned to their passing game, and Clemmons responded with completions to Bron, West, and senior wideout Tramaine Lawson. The pass to Lawson came on a fourth and 15 from the Glades Day 30. The pair had just missed on a pass to the goal line on the previous play, but this time they connected. Clemmons lofted the ball beautifully, and Lawson beat his man cleanly before being stopped at the Gators' 9-yard line. Seconds ticked away, and the packed crowd at Cane Field frantically urged the boys on. A run by Robinson gained 4 yards. A bad snap followed, and as time ed the scoreboard, the boys were left scoreless at the 5, easily within striking distance by their own potent ground attack. The 22-point margin at halftime would be too much to overcome, not that the Tigers didn't try. Clewiston held the Gators to one touchdown in the second half while scoring two of their own. Robinson ran a trap play just right of mountain moving center Miguel Perera and scored from three yards out to help cut the Gators' lead to 4927 with 3:30 left in the third quarter. After West stuffed Taylor for a 1-yard loss on the Gators' next possession, the Gators punted, and the Tigers launched a 98-yard drive that culminated in a 17-yard run for a touchdown by Robinson. That left the nal score at 49-34. Despite the loss, Clewiston impressed in several areas. The offense churned out 335 total yards and 23 rst downs. Clemmons hit 11 of 21 for 164 yards, and Tiger runners hit their holes for 171 yards on 34 carries. Special teams were nothing less than amazing. The Tigers returned kickoffs alone for 179 yards, including West's 90-yard touchdown. West scored three times on the night and Robinson added his two touchdowns. The Tigers committed fewer penalties Friday night. They were agged eight times for 84 yards. However, at least two were personal foul calls. Of cials ejected one Tiger. Glades Day netted 421 yards of offense with 21 rst downs against 15 penalties for 120 yards. The cog in its machine was Taylor, who carried 32 times for 218 yards. His runs allowed Carr to pass for 168 yards. Take away Taylor, and this game ends much differently. The Tigers hit the road Friday to play Martin County, whose record stands at 1-2. Martin County has scored 25 points in it rst three games, according to statistics found online. Clewiston, Glades Day Duke It Out in Gator Win

Governor Rick Scott yesterday requested that Florida counties affected by Hurricane Isaac receive federal assistance to aid in the recovery process. A request was made for Public Assistance to be granted to Bay, Collier, Escambia, Monroe, Okaloosa, Palm Beach, and Santa Rosa counties. The request also includes statewide funding for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. “After a disaster, our most important job is to help a community return to normal,” said State Coordinating Of cer Bryan W. Koon. “While no single entity can erase the impacts of a storm on a community, federal assistance will enable local governments to continue the recovery process.” The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Public Assistance provides grant assistance for debris removal and emergency protective measures. Costs for repair, replacement, or restoration of disaster-damaged, publicly-owned facilities can also be covered under Public Assistance. In order for Florida to receive assistance through the federal disaster relief programs, the state must meet the threshold of $25 million in uninsured damages. State and FEMA teams, along with county emergency management of cials, commenced Joint Preliminary Damage Assessments for Public Assistance on August 31, 2012. Federal assistance is requested for Public Assistance only. Individuals who have experienced disaster-related damage to homes or businesses should call their local county emergency management agency to receive disaster-related information and to document damages with of cials. A list of county emergency management agencies can be found at www.FloridaDisaster.org. Due to the potential impacts of Hurricane Isaac, Governor Scott signed Executive Order 12199, declaring a statewide state of emergency on Saturday, August 25. Hurricane Isaac made landfall south of New Orleans, Louisiana on August 28, as a Category 1 storm. Tropical storm force winds were observed across much of South Florida, portions of westcentral Florida, and the western Florida panhandle. The Florida peninsula had two con rmed tornadoes, water levels rose as high as six feet in southwest Florida and the Florida panhandle, causing coastal erosion. Portions of south Florida received six inches of rain and areas in Palm Beach County received as high as 15.86 inches, causing localized ooding.

the team’s home opener, Glades Central actually played its best game of the season thus far, despite committing seven turnovers (four lost fumbles, three thrown interceptions) in the defeat. Going into the fourth quarter, the Raiders defense kept the Stallions (3-0) from reaching the end zone. However, Glades Central’s offense couldn’t score either, as both teams were knotted up in a scoreless tie. That all changed with 6:40 left in the game, as an 8-yard pass thrown from newly installed starting quarterback Antwan Washington (12for-26 passing, 129 yards, 3 INT) to junior wideout Ronquavion Tarver resulted in a lost fumble at Glades Central’s 43-yard line. Immediately after Tarver lost the ball, Stallions senior cornerback Ka’wan Peete scooped the ball up and sprinted right into the end zone. Glades Central’s entire team, now down 7-0 at that point, looked stunned at what had transpired. “Everybody on our sideline though it was down,” Glades Central head coach Roosevelt Blackmon said of Tarver’s questionable fumble. “I thought it was down. Hats off to the referees; they made the call and unfortunately, it didn’t come out in our favor.” Glades Central senior defensive back/wideout David Bailey, who was right near the play, offered his analysis on what occurred. “The refs called it down, so that’s why I didn’t dive on the fumble recovery, which I could’ve had,” Bailey said. “But when the dude [Peete] picked up the ball, he said the whistle wasn’t blown.” Despite giving up 325 rushing yards to the Stallions offense, Glades Central’s defense allowed just one pass completion, an 11-yarder from Heritage senior athlete Marcus Davis to senior running back Greg Bryant. The only touchdown Glades Central’s defense allowed in the game was a 7-yard run by Bryant (23 carries, 151 yards), which came with 1:52 left. Bryant’s score iced the win for American Heritage. “We’re happy with our players stepping up,” Stallions assistant head coach Brad Tremper said. “At that point, we knew we just had them [Glades Central’s defense] tired, so when you have Greg, you have a nisher. We were just coming straight ahead and that’s what helped us out in the end.” Blackmon gave out his overall assessment of the game. “I just challenged the kids to come out and play hard,” Blackmon said. “And that’s what they did. It’s not a victory for us in terms of wins and losses, but it’s a victory for us because we got better.” Glades Central’s next game, scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start, is on Friday, Sept. 21 at home against Park Vista. Atlantic 39, Pahokee 0: Blue Devils junior running back Jonathan Jordan (33 rushing yards) suffered a broken leg on an offensive play in the game, while fellow junior Trent Laidler ( ve tackles at linebacker) suffered a dislocated elbow in the second quarter of Pahokee’s road loss on Sept. 14. As of press time, Jordan, one of Pahokee’s most important players, said his injury has declared him to be out for the rest of the season. Meanwhile, Laidler said he’ll be out for three weeks, which means he won’t be returning until either Pahokee’s Oct. 5 road game at Seminole Ridge or its Oct. 12 road game against Calvary Christian, a District 7-3A game. Pahokee (0-2) allowed three rushing touchdowns to Eagles senior running back Tevin Spells, while its secondary allowed senior quarterback Jay Mentecky to throw for a 26-yard touchdown pass to Aris Jovany – all in the rst half. In addition, Atlantic senior athlete Brisly Estime retuned an opening kickoff return for a touchdown that gave his Eagles a 7-0 lead. Estime accomplished that same feat against Glades Central in Atlantic’s spring game, which means the Delray Beach speedster has returned kickoff returns against both Pahokee and Glades Central in the same calendar year. In addition, Atlantic (2-1) has beaten both Glades Central and Pahokee for the second straight year – a feat that no Palm Beach County team has ever achieved up until now. Pahokee now has to move on from this loss and focus on their next game, a road matchup with Inlet Grove in Riviera Beach on Friday, Sept. 21, which starts at 7:30 p.m. Glades Day 49, Clewiston 34: Gators senior running back Kelvin Taylor (218 rushing yards, six total touchdowns) scored ve times on the ground to lead his team to victory over the Tigers (0-3). Taylor, who now has 10,256 yards for his high school football career, leads all Palm Beach County running backs with 726 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns (11 total scores) after just three games. Glades Day (3-0) will play its next game on Friday, Sept. 21, scheduled for a 7 p.m. start, at home against District 7-2A rival Jupiter Christian. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 20, 2012 FOOTBALLContinued  1 PHOTO / NAJI TOBIASGlades Central’s players were red up for their home opener against nationally-ranked American Heritage on Thursday, Sept. 13 at Ef e C.

And if the headlines have you down, y ou’re not alone. According to a recent Gallup study, threequarters of the population is dissatis ed with the w ay things are going in the United States at this time. But some experts believe that by simply putting things into perspective, we can avoid feeling overwhelmed by the realities of today. “What’s going on now isn’t anything new,” says Michael R. Drew, co-author of “Pendulum: How Past Generations Shape Our Present and Predict Our Future.” “It’s history repeated, through the cycles of social shifts.” In “Pendulum,” Drew, along with co-author Roy H. Williams, draw upon historical events to show how western society goes through predictable 40-year shifts, swinging from an idealist “me” system of values, to a civic or “we” way of thinking. As we approach 2013, they say, we will embark on the upswing of a “we” era, characterized by divisiveness and destructive historical events. There are ways to help ease stress about some of today’s issues and problems and those we are likely to encounter in the near future: Don’t be jaded by current political namecalling and divisiveness. It’s an American tradition. Even our beloved Founding Fathers were not above getting down in the mud. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams conducted a particularly nasty campaign against one another that would be considered even more beyond the pale than what we read in blogs, hear on radio and see in advertising. You don’t need to immerse yourself in the 24hour news cycle to be an informed citizen. Reading the newspaper, watching TV news, listening to the radio and checking out online news sites and social media services are an important part of staying connected to the world, but should be done in moderation. By taking a bit of time away from incendiary cable news shows and logging off social media periodically, you can give yourself time to think and re ect, focusing your energy on positive things. For media-junkies who can’t fathom disconnecting even temporarily, consider adding some alternative news sources to your mix, such as www.happynews.com, which supplies a dose of something different than anxietyinducing content. Politics, manners, humor, sexuality, wealth -even our de nitions of success -are periodically renegotiated based on whatever new values society judges acceptable. If you feel out of your element, simply give it some time and society will swing back toward your way of thinking eventually. We’re living in an age when more and more of us will be de ned by what we are not, rather than what we are -and what we stand against rather than what unites us. Fight against the divisiveness this creates by striving to be inclusive rather than exclusive. Tips for Coping with the Stresses of Modern Life

The national average has increased 15.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 24.9 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “The national average continues to hover near its higher ever September level,” said GasBuddy. com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “As we push deeper into September, the more optimistic I am that these high prices will begin to come down slightly, but with the recently announced QE3, I’m a bit concerned that prices won’t moderate as much as previously expected as the dollar weakens, leading me to believe 2012 will have featured the highest yearly average ever,” DeHaan said.

Tobacco remains a serious issue among teens New data released by the Florida Department of Health (DOH) shows that 23 percent fewer Florida high school students are current cigarette smokers compared to 2010. The results indicate a decline in overall tobacco use among youth. “The decrease in tobacco use among our state’s youth is an encouraging indication of the effectiveness of our tobacco prevention programs, yet our work is not done,” said State Surgeon General Dr. John Armstrong. “We in Florida are fortunate to have a comprehensive program that provides county-level community interventions and continued education for all youth. The Department remains committed to preventing smoking in the rst place as we help current smokers quit.” The 2012 Florida Youth Tobacco Survey (FYTS) shows: 10.1 percent of high school students reported current cigarette use, meaning they smoked a cigarette at least once during the past 30 days, a 22.6 percent decrease compared to 2010. 11.4 percent of high school students reported current cigar use, a 13.6 decline compared to 2010. 7.7 percent reported current hookah use, a 6.1 percent decrease compared to 2010. 5.6 percent of high school students reported current smokeless tobacco use, a 12.5 percent decrease compared to 2010. In 2010, DOH re-launched a comprehensive media campaign that demonstrates the severe health and emotional toll of tobacco-related death and disease. Research proves that hard-hitting media campaigns are effective at promoting quit attempts and reducing youth tobacco initiation. The Florida data comes on the heels of a national report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Aug. 3 that shows an alarming increase in the use of non-cigarette smoked tobacco products. The avoring and lower costs of these products make them especially appealing to teens. Youth mistakenly believe avored tobacco, widely considered to be starter products, to be less harmful than their nonavored counterparts. Preventing tobacco use and encouraging cessation among young people are critical in combating the tobacco epidemic because nearly nine out of 10 smokers start by age 18. The number of teens who try or habitually use tobacco increases with each increasing grade level. As students go back to school, now is a perfect time for parents talk with their teens about tobacco issues. Teens whose parents strongly disapprove of their tobacco use – even if they use tobacco themselves – are less likely to take up tobacco. Parental disapproval has even been found to counteract peer in uence. Yet, the 2012 FYTS shows that only 50.4 percent of high school students had talked with a parent or guardian about the dangers of tobacco in the past year. A parent’s own tobacco use signi cantly in uences their child’s decision to use tobacco. One important way Floridians can help prevent tobacco use is by quitting. The Florida Department of Health’s Tobacco Free Florida programs offers free and convenient quit resources. For more information, visit www.tobaccofree orida.com.

We have different duties to focus on but we help each other out.” Throughout the evening, that’s what he did. Whenever he saw another deputy’s lights ashing, he stopped to help. His reasons had nothing to do with being nosey or because help was immediately needed. His reason: should things get out of hand he would already be on scene and his “brother” or “sister” would not have to wait for his help. At one point, he saw lights ashing and said, “Let’s see what’s going on over there.” After he pulled up, it was very apparent that the person who called them was extremely upset. He was cursing and yelling; this alarmed Deputy Rivera so he got out of the car to increase the safety of his fellow of cers. The problem was never solved but the person went on their way. The problem: a store clerk called the customer a vulgar name and instead of no longer doing business with the store, the man called the sheriff’s of ce to settle the dispute. Deputy Rivera said, “We receive call like this all the time. Instead of people handling their differences like adults they call us in to referee and it takes us away from calls where people truly need help.” Riding past McDonald’s, he was sure to point out that they aren’t allowed to accept free gifts like food or desserts because it may place them in an awkward position one day. He said, “I had a pulled a guy over one time and he tried to use his business to get out of a ticket. He told me to come by any time and pick up some lunch.” However, the former owner of a local barbershop stated, “I would rather give the cops a free or discounted haircut to keep them around my business so at least the criminals never know when a cop is there or going to show up so it’s not smart for them to even try.” After riding for nearly three hours, Deputy Rivera pointed to his gas gauge. In three hours, he had already used half a tank of gas. He said, “I lled up just before I came to work and look it’s half way gone. I’ll need to ll up again.” When asked who pays for the gas he replied, “We pay for the gas; it comes out of each paycheck automatically and we pay some for the cars too. Most people think that we just ride around and burn gas but we don’t. We try to be seen in as many places as we can to help the criminals know they’re being watched.” PATROLContinued  1 PHOTO / JOSE ZARAGOZAGiving back to natureInstallations of native vegetation serve to accommodate the natural wild ie around Lake Okeechobee.
