BY NAJI TOBIAS e SunGlades Central rebounded in an amazing way, winning eight games in a row after a 0-4 start to this season. After much discussion about whether or not Glades Central was still a relevant team in Palm Beach County – if not the nation – they did turn out to be the area’s last team standing. Despite the Raiders 33-24 loss to Miami Jackson in the Class 5A-Region 4 nals on Nov. 30 – the defeat effectively ended Glades Central’s 5A state title run – they were never out of the game and they showed why they’ll almost always be a team worth watching from start to nish. Glades Central (8-5 nal record) led 10-0 in the rst half, thanks in part to a 3-yard run into the end zone by senior triple-threat Will Likely (8 catches, 100 yards; 10 carries, 35 yards, TD) with 3:50 left in the rst quarter. And sophomore Giovanni Lugo added a 37-yard eld goal with 10.4 seconds left in the rst. The Raiders second scoring drive, made possible by Likely’s 24-yard punt return into Jackson’s territory, gave them a 10-0 lead going into the second quarter. But Glades Central couldn’t hold on, as Miami Jackson junior quarterback Quinton Flowers (7-for-15 passing, 178 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT) connected on a 12-yard strike to wide receiver Devondre Powell (3 catches, 48 yards, 2 TDs) in the end zone to cut Glades Central lead to 10-6 with 3:07 left in the rst half. And after the Generals (8-4 record) forced a three-and-out on Glades Central’s offense, their special teams blocked a Raiders punt in the end zone with 1:22 left in the rst half. Miami Jackson’s Sumondrae Williams recovered it for the touchdown to give his team a 12-10 lead that went into halftime. “We left some points on the board,” Glades Central offensive coordinator Reidel Anthony said. “We made a bunch of little mistakes in the rst half and Miami Jackson took advantage of them.” Abrams (3-for-8 passing, 36 yards, lost fumble) was taken out of the game in Glades Central’s nal offensive series in the rst half. He was forced to sit out the rest of the way due to concussionlike symptoms he reportedly suffered in the rst quarter. In came Lugo, who will likely be Glades Central’s starting quarterback T D V. N.

They are also a time to pay special attention to your health and the health of your family. Follow these tips to have a safer and healthier holiday season: Watch the kids: Keep your children with you at all times while you are shopping. Accompany and supervise your children in public restrooms. Have a plan in case you become separated. If your kids are old enough to understand, have a pre-designated spot to meet if you get separated. Teach children to look for people who can help, such as a uniformed security of cer, or a salesperson. Kid safety: Keep a watchful eye on your kids when they’re eating and playing. Keep potentially dangerous toys, food, drinks, household items, choking hazards (like coins and hard candy), and other objects out of kids’ reach. Learn what to do for children who are choking. Make sure toys are used properly. Wash your hands often: Keeping your hands clean is one of the most important steps you can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Wash your hands with soap and clean running water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and clean water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Stay warm: Cold temperatures can cause serious health problems, especially in infants and older adults. Stay dry, and dress warmly in several layers of loosetting, tightly woven clothing. Manage stress: The holidays shouldn’t cause problems with your health. Be aware of your actions, try not to over-commit or overspend. Try to balance your work, home, and play. Get support from your family and friends. Try to keep a relaxed and positive outlook. Travel safely: Whether you’re traveling across town or around the world, keep safety in mind. Do not drink and drive, and don’t let someone else drink and drive. Wear a seat belt every time you drive or ride with someone in a motor vehicle. Always buckle your child in the car using a child safety seat, booster seat, or seat belt according to their height, weight, and age. Be smoke-free: Avoid smoking and breathing other people’s smoke. If you smoke, quit today! Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW or talk to your health care provider for help. Get check-ups and vaccinations: Exams and screenings can help nd problems before they start. They can also help nd problems early, when the chances for treatment and cure are better. Vaccinations help prevent diseases and save lives. Schedule a visit with your health care provider for a yearly exam. Ask what vaccinations and tests you should get based on your age, lifestyle, travel plans, medical history, and family health history. Prevent injuries: Injuries can occur anywhere and some often occur around the holidays. Use step stools instead of furniture when hanging decorations. Leave the reworks to the professionals. Wear a bicycle helmet to help prevent head injuries. Fire Safety: Most residential res occur during the winter months. Keep candles away from children, pets, walkways, trees, and curtains. Never leave replaces, stoves, or candles unattended. Don’t use generators, grills, or other gasolineor charcoal-burning devices inside your home or garage. Install a smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector in your home. Test them once a month, and replace batteries twice a year. Handle and prepare food safely: As you prepare holiday meals, keep you and your family safe from food-related illness. Wash hands and surfaces often. Avoid cross-contamination by keeping raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs (including their juices) away from ready-to-eat foods and eating surfaces. Cook foods to the proper temperature. Refrigerate promptly. Do not leave perishable foods out of the refrigerator for more than two hours. Protect pets from rabies: Pets are considered family members. Keep them healthy and safe as well. Your pet should have regular checkups and be sure to keep rabies vaccinations upto-date. Do something positive for yourself and those around you and you will be happier and healthier!

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee December 6, 2012 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonSightings of Barn Owls and other nesting owls are being requested for the Florida Breeding Bird A tlas II surveys. Passing on your observations to the Florida Breeding Bird Atlas (between Nov. 1 and July 1) will save the BBA II volunteers a lot of sleep, time and gasoline. The street address or location, date, and the breeding owl species observed is all that is needed. No one will be visiting your home and usually only one report of a species at a location will be necessary though 2016. For Hendry and Glades County nesting observations can be sent to Margaret England sta5birding@embarqmail.com. Information for other Florida counties may be sent to Rick West at RickLWest@aol.com. Barn Owls are the world’s most far ranging owls with up to 46 different races being described w orldwide. The North America form is the largest, weighing more than twice as much as the smallest race which is found in the Galapagos Islands. A Barn Owl is larger than a Screech Owl, but smaller than a Great Horned Owl. These medium-sized owls have long, rounded wings and a short tail. Their legs are long and the head is smoothly rounded, without ear tufts. They are pale with dark eyes and have a white heartshaped face with a mix of buff and gray on the head, back and underwings. At night they appear to be all white. Barn Owls are known locally as the “Ghost Owl” or “Monkey Faced Owl”. Females are more reddish and more heavily spotted on the chest than males. These birds don’t hoot the way most owls do; instead, they make a long, harsh scream or a soft purring call. They will make loud hisses when disturbed. The oldest know North American Barn Owl live to be at least 15 years and ve months old. Barn Owls are found in open grasslands, marshes, agricultural elds, forests, suburbs and cities. Their diet consists mostly of small mammals, particularly rats, mice, voles, bats, rabbits, and birds. They also eat insects and amphibians. The female makes a simple cup-shaped nest that she lines with her own regurgitated pellets, wood, and trigs which she shreds with her feet. These owls use their nest site which is built in a tree cavity, old building, abandoned machinery or rock crevice for roosting throughout the year. The female usually lays ve to seven eggs, but as many as 11 have been found in a clutch. The eggs are incubated for 30 to 34 days with the young edging at 55 to 62 days old.

BY PAT DOBBINS Hendry/Glades Health Departments1. Start With a Vision: Start your holiday with a clear vision of how you would like it to go. Share your visions and thoughts with your family and friends and ask for their input as well. 2. Set Goals and Prioritize: Its okay to say “no” sometimes. Saying yes when you should say no can sometimes leave you feeling overwhelmed. Family, friends and colleagues should understand if you can’t attend every party or participate in every activity. 3. Organize and Simplify: Try to nd ways to organize you activities and create a “to-do” list so you can check things off as you get them accomplished to help you feel more organized and productive during the holiday season. 4. Take Care of “You”: You must nd time to take care of yourself physically, mentally and spiritually. Go for a walk, get enough sleep, read inspiring literature, spend time with close friends to talk and laugh, listen to music, go outdoors, spend some quiet time alone, meditate, and try to be tobacco free. 5. Think Safety: Whether you are traveling long distances, hanging lights, or simply walking in a busy parking lot, it’s important to pay extra attention to the safety of you and your family around the holidays. 6. Try to Stay Financially Fit: We are all responsible for our own happiness and health during the holidays. Whether or not you have a good holiday is a function of your decisions and not the conditions around you. Try to make realistic nancial commitments and time commitments that you can keep this holiday season. 7. Try to Eat Well: There are a few things that you can do to keep things under control: Limit your portions, don’t go to a party hungry; steer clear of items high in fats; watch out for high calorie foods and beverages. Drink lots of water. Sample and taste new things, but try not to overdo it. 8. Stay Active: Find opportunities to stay active to help you feel better, more energized, focused and t for the demands of the season. 9. Get Connected: Encourage those you love to help you create meaningful traditions and routines that can be part of future holidays. Get in touch with extended family and old friends. 10. Explore New Experiences but Set Limits: Trying something new – especially a refreshing exercise, like Tai Chi. It is a great way to keep t, relieve stress, and meet new friends this holiday season. Read a new book, write in a journal, visit a library, study something new, and try to watch less TV. 11. Give: Commit random acts of kindness. Small gestures (that don’t cost anything except for your time) can make a huge difference in someone’s life. Other things you can do: volunteer, visit the elderly, read to a child, or donate clothes, toys, and food to a needy family. 12. Have Fun: Play, dance, sing, laugh, and enjoy. Experience the joy, excitement and wonder of the holiday season. You are never too old to act like a kid once in a while! 12 Healthy Habits to Get You Through The Holidays 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee December 6, 2012 Crossword Puzzle Big Cypress National Preserve is one of the most diverse National Park Units in the National Park Service. Join Park Ranger Lisa Andrews to learn about its history, ora, fauna and the exciting recreational opportunities that await you. This public program, “Discover Big Cypress”, is being hosted by Hendry-Glades Audubon on Monday, Dec. 10, at 7 p.m. at the Clewiston Museum located at 109 Central Avenue in Clewiston. For information Please call the Clewiston Museum at 863-983-2870 or email clewistonmuseum@embarqmail.com Discover Big Cypress A Unique Place Right in Your Own Backyard Despite scant rainfall, regional water supplies remain adequateThe rst month of South Florida’s dry season edged out the long-standing record rainfall low for November, South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) meteorologists reported today. The District-wide rainfall average of 0.29 inches in November was just 0.01 below the previous record low of 0.30 inches in both 1940 and 1944, based on District records since 1932. All 16 counties in the District were more than 1.5 inches below average for November, which is typically one of the driest months in South Florida. “With the bene t of above-average wet season rainfall, regional groundwater and surface water levels fortunately were in a position to ‘weather’ a record dry month,” said Susan Sylvester, SFWMD Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. “It is too early to assess the impact this record dry period will have on conditions and water levels.” Eastern Palm Beach County had the largest rainfall de cit in the District, with 0.69 inches of rain, representing a de cit of 3.46 inches, or 17 percent of average. The Upper Kissimmee Basin and Martin, St. Lucie and eastern Miami-Dade counties all recorded rainfall de cits of more than 2 inches for the month. The East Caloosahatchee Basin also recorded more than a 2-inch rainfall de cit while the Southwest Coast recorded a 1.88-inch de cit. Lake Okeechobee stood at 15.10 feet NGVD today, which is 0.30 feet above the historic average for this time of year.2012-2013 Dry Season ForecastSouth Florida is forecast to experience one of the few dry seasons having near-average rainfall in the past 14 years. Only two dry seasons, 19981999 and 2003-2004, have actually been about the historical average in that timeframe, with two above average and 10 below average dry seasons. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center forecast calls for equal chances of slightly above or slightly below average rainfall for the rst three months of the upcoming dry season. Among the of cial forecast highlights for the 2012-2013 South Florida dry season: Near normal precipitation is mostly likely during the rst part of the dry season, from November to February. A drier-than-normal trend may characterize March and April. Average dry season precipitation: 12 to 15 inches in the interior and west to 15 to 21 inches in the east. Long-term average winter temperature: 64 to 66 F in the interior and west to 67 to 69 F in the east.

Lugo (11-for-13 passing, 138 yards, TD) was a force to be reckoned with in the second half. With 8:22 left in the third, Lugo dropped back and kept his poise in the pocket, as he found a wide open man in junior wide receiver Ronquavion Tarver for a 9-yard touchdown pass. Glades Central’s score initially gave the home team a 16-12 lead, but an illegal motion penalty was called on the Raiders offense, which subsequently negated the touchdown. It proved to be a very costly mistake, as Glades Central wound up ending that pivotal possession with no added points on the scoreboard. Glades Central, which found itself down 1910 with 31.8 second left in the third quarter, was burned by an 80-yard touchdown strike from Flowers to Desmond Phillips (2 catches, 98 yards, TD). “That was a great throw he made on us,” Anthony said. Glades Central recovered quickly from the setback, as Lugo engineered a quick touchdown drive that ended with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Tarver with 10:36 left. Lugo’s touchdown pass – and his extra point – cut Miami Jackson’s lead to 19-17. Glades Central’s sudden momentum came to a screeching halt, as a botched handoff from senior David Bailey to Likely on a rst-and-15 play from the 50-yard line resulted in a costly fumble that Miami Jackson recovered. Miami Jackson’s Christopher Williams-Hall, who got the ball from the Glades Central 32-yard line, sprinted his way into the end zone. Williams-Hall’s score – plus an extra point by Generals kicker Franklin Bonilla – gave the Generals a 26-17 lead with 8:47 left. “There’s three phases to a football game – offense, defense and special teams,” Miami Jackson head coach Antonio Brown said. “They [Glades Central] have a special guy in Likely, so we had to contain him as much as possible.” Glades Central fought back on its very next possession, as senior running back Arron Baker (11 carries, 113 yards, TD) sidestepped a few defenders en route to a 24-yard touchdown run that cut the Generals lead to 26-24 with 7:45 left. A key play on the Raiders scoring drive was a 20-yard pass completion from Lugo to Likely, which put Glades Central at Jackson’s 33-yard line and ultimately set up Baker’s score. It turned out to be Glades Central’s nal touchdown of the season, as Miami Jackson methodically engineered a pivotal seven-play drive that ended with a 23-yard touchdown pass from Flowers to Powell with 3:57 left. Powell’s touchdown catch – plus an extra point by Bonilla – gave Miami Jackson a 33-24 lead that stood until the end. “It was a big-time play for us,” Brown said. On Glades Central’s nal possession, Lugo found Likely on two passes for 28 yards, which allowed the Raiders to reach the Generals 42yard line with 1:41 left. But it wasn’t enough, as the Raiders, who faced a third-and-35 situation from their own 30yard line, failed to get the critical rst down. “We didn’t win the game, but Lugo made some good throws and made the most of his opportunity out there,” Anthony said. “He has a very bright future ahead of him.” Anthony recapped the game – and the season – for Glades Central. “It was an up-and-down roller coaster for us,” Anthony said. “We were always in position to win games, but we just didn’t execute all the time. That’s exactly how our losses turned out this season.” FOOTBALLContinued  1 The report mentions that the crowd was large, and the female victim was the only person injured.

When emergency workers arrived, they found the body of 80-year-old David Flatter of Lighthouse Point, Fla. in the wreckage. According to reports, the veteran pilot with 60 years of ight experience, took off from Pompano Beach headed for Lakeland Linder Regional Airport the day before the wreckage was found.

Parents, students and community members witnessed over 90 “A and B” Honor Roll and 4 All “A’s” students being honored for academic achievement. The students were able to wear jeans on Nov. 20. The All “A’s” students also received gift cards just in time for the Holidays. Despite a stellar 16-year history of excellent arts programs and increasing respect among child-centered community-based after-school programs serving a poverty-stricken Glades population, without help, Street Beat, Inc.’s days may be numbered. Budget constraints caused largely by changes in local public grants programs have reduced the organization’s programs over the past several years. Quality evaluations consistently re ect superb programs and administration. However, turns in the economy and priorities shifting from a focus on children to a need to serve homeless family with housing and nutrition, has affected community based after school programs. A November 1st letter to the Glades Communities describes Street Beat’s effort to keep the doors open for local children. It chronicles the beginning of the funding decline, from the loss of funding from one its major foundation contributors because of that foundation’s decline due to the Bernie Madoff “ponzi scheme.” Further, elimination of Community Foundation grants due to an economy driven change in focus. The Children’s Services Council through Family Central has affected the local non-pro t negatively, as well. Once funded to serve 80 children on a daily basis, which only scratched the surface of need in the Glades region, Street Beat currently is funded to serve only 34 children. Statistics show that 30 percent of Glades children are in families who live below the poverty line; 36 percent live in single parent households. An average of 97 percent of students qualify for free or reduced fee lunches, and there are few resources that serve youth of working class families. As the only grassroots performing arts organization serving the communities of the Glades, through supportive out-of-school programming of arts training coupled with homework assistance and life-skills foci, Street Beat has touched more than 5,000 residents annually since 1996. It has grown from a small organization with a budget of $27,000 to $400,000-budget program, whose resume includes Kravis Center, City Place and Super Bowl performances by its now, volunteer only, highly acclaimed SBI Dance Program participants. Street Beat along with its alumni body, are joining forces to bring a bene t event in the hopes of re-awakening in the hearts of its friends, supporters, local businesses, and philanthropists – the need and importance of supporting the vision and programs of Street Beat alive and well. This promises to be an unforgettable evening of artistic excellence in the performing arts. The event, “Re ections of a Journey” will be held on Friday, December 28th at 7 p.m. at the First Baptist Church in Belle Glade; tickets are $15. Ticket locations are: Street Beat’s Administrative Of ces in South Bay, and Program site at Gove Elementary, Belle Glade Alliance Church, The Bank of Belle Glade, and True Divine Hair Salon. For more information, please call 561996-9913 Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Street Beat Faces Uncertain Future Lake Shore Middle School is one of the only middle schools in Western Palm Beach County that has the AVID Program.

Students were recognized during a special school-wide program on Tuesday, Nov. 27. Residents of Pahokee’s Citizens Villas subdivision are no longer experiencing ooding in their yards thanks to Palm Beach County’s Disaster Recovery Initiative (DRI) and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs. The Department of Economic Sustainability allocated $320,000 to fund needed drainage improvements. Under a contract awarded by County Engineering, AKA Services, Inc. recently completed the construction of new storm sewers and drainage structures to handle storm water runoff. The project involved work on 24 separate residential parcels and will improve the overall drainage of the area through the upgrades to the existing outfall and the installation of new outfalls. Coordination with the property owners, utility companies, and the city of Pahokee were essential to bringing the project to fruition, and the results have already been noticeable. Following Tropical Storm Isaac, resident Lucinda Hood remarked, “Before the new drain, the water came right up to my house. Now, I have no problems.” DRI funds have been made available to states and local governments for long-term recovery needs following the 2004, 2005 and 2008 hurricane seasons. Florida’s program has allocated more than $318 million statewide for rehabilitation of damaged housing and storm water sewers, drainage and street improvement infrastructure. Since 1974, Palm Beach County has helped urban communities develop decent housing and expand economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income, through the CDBG program. Among the eligible activities, the program funds the implementation of capital improvement projects to help alleviate ooding in low-lying areas.

Science is everywhere! Through the STEAM team the students were exposed to Florida’s history and life science via in-house eld trips last week. The second graders learned about the Florida watersheds and everglades on Monday. The third graders visited the Florida Historical Museum on Friday. Pine Jog gave kindergarteners and fth graders a lesson about the importance of camou age. STEAM artist Jean Howard visited the fourth graders and kindergarten. The second graders also learned about dental sealants this week. The third, fourth, and fth graders circumvented ninety seven pounds of plastic from a wasted future at a land ll during the Recycle Bowl. Congratulations to the third and the fourth graders for recycling 51 pounds of plastic. Forty six pounds of plastic were recycled by the fth graders. Each class received a certi cate for their contribution. Thanks for helping take care of our planet and living green! Sugar Bear scientists totally rock! Ms. Jasmin’s Reading Spot Greetings families, fellow educators, students and our most valued and supportive community members! This week, we are gearing up for story writing, focusing on enlarging our students’ word mastery and usage. Encourage your child to make an association to new and challenging words, use words in spoken, intelligent sentences, then write these sentences down. Remember there is more to understanding a word than pronouncing it and looking up the de nition. Beyond speaking the word, a deeper understanding is re ected in comprehending the word in context when reading. Using the word correctly in writing takes vocabulary to its highest level. I designed the following word lists to support our students’ test taking skills and strategies. For grades three through ve, there are separate word lists for reading, writing and science. Students, study, speak, and write these words. Enjoy them! Make these words yours, “own” them! The more words you master, the more you master your learning! Sugar Bears, I applaud you! You will write a story based on these words on Friday. I anticipate the thrilling results you will give. Have an awesome week and Read! Read! Read!

With many of those students also in the National Honor Society it is a natural that the two clubs join together to make this event happen each year! It all started when A.R.T.S. Club sponsor Lea Jefferson and West Area Title I Social Services facilitator Carolyn Vickers made contact in early September to set a date and made plans to bring the children on buses into the downtown West Palm Beach arts school. The children then waited with excitement for the day to arrive when they could sample Dreyfoos holiday cheer and teenage mentoring that includes performances and sing-a-longs, holida y craft making, pizza eating and cookie decorating and of course, a visit from Santa for each child! Dreyfoos A.R.T.S. Club seniors Carl Amritt, Mikeshia Lewin, Ariana Karpinia and Valentin a Botero lead up the organization of the event and National Honor Society club sponsor, Richard Gallo and students organize the toy drive. At the conclusion of the day each child received a new book donated by a communit y reading advocate to take back to their home to share and read with their family. The party is made possible because of a generous donation from Arrigo Dodge Chrysler Jeep of West Palm Beach and from Dreyfoos students who collect new toys and clothes to make each child's wish list come true! Dreyfoos A.R.T.S. Club and National Honor Society to Host Holiday Party SUBMITTED PHOTOClub members gather to wrap gifts.
