T J V. N. Arrestspage 10 Arrests Early high school graduate will enroll at University of MarylandBY NAJI TOBIAS e SunWill Likely is set to become a Terrapin. The Glades Central Raiders senior athlete, who had more than 20 college scholarship offers, announced his decision to commit to the University of Maryland during a ceremony held at his high school’s auditorium on Dec. 21. It was a move that took almost everyone by surprise. Likely, who took his of cial visit to Maryland not long before making his fateful decision, wasn’t sure where he would end up at. But after talking it over with his parents, it was clear to him that Maryland was the best choice. Glades Central 2013 ATH Will Likely Commits to MarylandSEE GRADUATE  4 JulyPahokee Breaks into Top 100 H.S. Rankings According to the Washington Post, parents looking to locate near a high school ranked in the top 100 in the country need look no further than Pahokee. Pahokee High recent-ly received the outstanding referral – grabbing the 66th spot -to the de-lighted surprise of school of cials. In being named to the list, the school is one of only six high schools in the county, and the only one in the Glades, to be featured. Silence is Broken by Belle Glade Murders The video of a shooting attack in Belle Glade painted a picture that only the moving image could capture: four men running for their lives amid a hail of bullets. Two men fall early in the scene, stumbling onto the pavement, with one of the men desperately crawling across the darkened street, unable to lift himself and run. Another person would not make it into the video, having been gunned down before he could try to escape. Of cials believe that man was Kenji Simeton, of Belle Glade, who was pronounced dead as a result of the injuries he sustained in the attack. Little other information exists about the incident, a fact that has Palm Beach County Sheriff ’s Of cials, including the sheriff himself, frustrated. Interim in Place at PBSCGlades After Dr. Maria Hardney, provost of the Belle Glade campus of Palm Beach State College for the last three years, announced her resignation, a search began for a new provost. Her last day was the day her contract expired, June 30. Since then PBSC has hired an interim, Dr. Celeste Beck, to take her place until the nationwide search for a new provost is concluded.

The accident was serious enough to send the driver at fault, and his 18-month-old passenger to the hospital via Trauma Hawk. The accident happened in the early morning hours of December 30 at the intersection of State Road 715 and Southwest Avenue H, the entrance to Palm Beach State College’s Belle Glade campus. Wildred Walcott, 51, of Belle Glade, was driving in his 2001 Toyota Camry, heading west on Southwest Avenue H, when he failed to stop at the intersection. Walcott continued in the direction before being hit by a vehicle that was traveling north on 715.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonDowny Woodpeckers are one of the most common and smallest woodpeckers found in the United States. In Florida they are almost as widespread as the Red-bellied Woodpecker. They breed from Western And Central Alaska east to Newfoundland and South to Southern California and South Florida. These birds are yearround Florida residents, however, fewer are observed in the winter months. These black and white birds are about 6.75 inches long, which is about two-thirds the size of a Hairy Woodpecker. They have a tiny long and straight, chisel-like bill that looks small for the bird’s size compared to other woodpeckers. Their narrow white cheek stripe is broader at the back than the front. Other features include a blocky head, wide shoulders, and straightbacked posture as they lean away from tree limbs onto their tail feathers. Their outer tail feathers are normally white with a few black spots. Adult males have a small red patch on the back of their head. Downy Woodpeckers don’t sing, but will drum loudly on wood or metal. Both sexes make a noisy whinnying call during breeding season or a sharp “pik” sound when excited. The oldest known Downy Woodpecker lived to be at least 11 years and 11 months of age. Downy Woodpeckers are found in wooded habitats in rural and urban areas. About 75 to 85 percent of their diet consists of insects, including beetle larvae, ants and caterpillars living inside wood or tree bark. About 25 percent of their diet consists of plant material including berries, acorns, and grains. They also eat suet or black oil sun ower seeds from backyard feeders and drink from hummingbird feeders. During the winter males feed on small branches and females feed on larger branches and trunks. This species normally nests from April through early May. They are cavity nesters who seldom accept nest boxes. Each year the male and female excavate a new hole which is about seven inches in diameter in a dead tree ve to 50 feet above the ground. It takes the breeding pair 13 to 20 days to complete the nest where the female lays three to ve white eggs which are incubated for about 12 days. The young edge in 20 to 25 days; however the adults will continue feeding the young for up to three weeks additional weeks. Join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers for birding or photography trips. You and your guests are invited participate in upcoming birding trips January 5 and 19th at STA5 (Stormwater Treatment Area 5). Meet at 8:30 a.m. at the new STA5 Deer Fence Trailhead.

Ms. Jasmine’s Reading Spot Greetings students, families, fellow educators, and supportive community members! The strategy of the week is based on Bloom’s Taxonomy question stems. Stem questions have been researched and a list of questions has been created that can be used to help support students’ reading comprehension skills. The skills in the cognitive domain of Blooms Taxonomy are what the focus will be on for the next month. Skills in the cognitive domain revolve around knowledge, comprehension and critical thinking of a particular topic. The cognitive domain includes the following: Knowledge Comprehension Application Analysis Synthesis Evaluation The key, as they rapidly progress towards FCAT/Assessments, is to expose students to higher order thinking questions like those found in state and district assessments. Families, we encourage you to use the stems when reading with your children over the break. Thank you and enjoy your holiday celebrations! 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 3, 2013 SCHOOL BRIEFS side portion of the Camry.

But I thought about it and prayed about it. I just like the direction the program [Maryland] is going in. I’m just ready to get it started.” Likely, who is arguably Glades Central’s most decorated player in its illustrious history, said he could see himself playing right away for Maryland at defensive back and on special teams. It wouldn’t be a surprise if that happens, given the fact he starred on special teams and at defensive back for Glades Central as far back as his freshman season. Likely, who was selected as Florida’s Gatorade High School Player of the Year as a junior, was also a standout in the classroom. A high honors student at Glades Central, he nished high school with a 3.91 weighted grade point average. Glades Central teacher Cartheda Mann, who taught Likely when he a junior in her Advanced Placement English class, spoke of his determination to excel both on and off the eld. “He remained true to who he is,” Mann said of Likely. “He is a consummate sportsman, a committed scholar and a gentleman. Those characteristics don’t often mix well, but he did a great job of balancing everything out.” Likely, who is widely known as a humble individual who rarely – if ever – takes full credit for his achievements, offered some advice to the ones who will come behind him. “You can’t play sports without academics,” Likely said. “If you put God rst in everything you do, keep a tight relationship with your parents and stay focused in school, then it will all work out.” GRADUATEContinued  1

of the area, hitting the streets in larger numbers, and aggressively pursuing suspects in shooting cases. Their work has already pro-duced evidence of the commitment: two men are in jail on charges of attempted murder in connection with a Friday shooting incident in the city of Belle Glade.AugustProgram Prepares Low-income Children for School The Community Back to School Bash (BASH) is a non-pro t organization that coordinates with other local non-pro ts throughout Palm Beach County to help disadvantaged students from pre-K through 12th grade get the supplies they need to start their school year off on the right foot. Services offered not only include notebooks, folders, pens, and pencils but also included are school physicals, immunizations, gently used clothing, new/used uniforms, and haircuts. Families receive a free meal and are able to attend a nancial seminar presented by State Farm Insurance. The Henry Ford of the Sugar Business? As executive of ces go, George Wedgworth's is rather modest. Located in a rear corner on the third oor of the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida's administrative building adjoining the big mill, it has the requisite pair of chairs and a desk with the usual clutter. The photos and paintings on the wall mostly feature the mill itself. A collage shows the sugar re neries the co-op co-owns in the U.S. and around the world. At the edge of the far wall is a small window with a view of the parking lot, and beyond that, the outskirts of Wedgworth's hometown, Belle Glade. The co-op recently celebrated running its 50th crop through the mill. Wedgworth has been the boss there for every one of those crops, and then some. Rev. Faces 80 Years in Prison The man who until recent years was known better for his vocalizing arguments at local government functions, for dogmatic tirades against Belle Glade city commissioners, and his multiple failed bids for elected of ce, will be entering a new phase of his life: serving a lengthy prison sentence. In a mysterious act of de ance, or perhaps just a nal hurrah against the establishment which just minutes before found him guilty on charges of sex acts with teens, Rev. James Richard Harris swallowed a handful of pills that were later con rmed to be breath mints. Deputies rushed to subdue him and emergency workers hauled him away in a stretcher. Harris was convicted by a jury of molesting a 15 year old boy after promises of a possible football career for the child, and videotaping teenagers having sex at his Belle Glade home. Just as the Palm Beach County judge announced his conviction last week, Harris reportedly grabbed a handful of the pills and tried to swallow them with water. Belle Glade Streets Off-Limits for Minors? Some time back, and in response to a rise in violent crimes in Belle Glade, the governing leaders of the city discussed the implementation of a city-wide curfew. With recent violent crimes arresting the attention of locals, the leaders are hoping to follow through with the curfew once and for all. In an effort to curb the crime that had gripped the city back then -much like recent shootings have -the curfew's goal was to keep all youth 17 or younger inside their homes at night, not dwelling in the dark streets of downtown Belle Glade where much of the activity had taken place. Flooding in the Glades After Isaac Earlier this week, Belle Glade Mayor Steve Wilson said his priority would be on helping residents who were affected by ooding after last weekend's stormy event. Homes were ooded in some areas, includ-ing many mobile home parks and farm elds across the Glades, the result of heavy bands of rain brought about by Tropical Storm Isaac.SeptemberLingering Question About Storm of 1928 to be Answered? 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. Project Homeless Connect Event Coming to Belle Glade This summer has brought scorching temperatures to Florida, barrels of rain, unleashed by Tropical Storm Isaac, and a few recent thunderstorms which have proved to be more vicious than some of our past hurricanes. Through all of these weather asco's, one question has persisted: what will happen to the homeless? The Homeless Coalition aims to remedy homelessness for as many as possible. The nonpro t organization fully supports the county's "Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness in Palm Beach County," a plan devised to ad-dress and end homelessness within 10 years. The Passenger’s Seat of a PBSO Patrol Car Sitting 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 of cers 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. Glades Central’s Brutal Losing Streak Continues The bye week couldn't come at a better time for Glades Central. As the Raiders embark on their rst 0-4 start in more than 25 years, several glaring weaknesses have emerged. In Glades Central's 24-14 home loss to Park Vista (Lake Worth) on Sept. 21, the propensity for committing late turnovers, inconsistent play on both offense and defense, injuries to some key players and the inability to nish strong were contributing factors to the program's latest disappointment.OctoberGlades Mosquito Levels Low This Year There is a small chicken coop near the C.L. Brumback Health De-partment in Belle Glade with a small ock of chickens, no more than ten at any time, where the birds are housed for the primary job in their lives: to be mosquito feasts. In the grand scheme of keeping local residents safe, it is these chickens on the forefront, sel essly pitting themselves againts the onslaught of insect bites to track and combat the threat of mosquito-borne diseases to humans. Raiders Get Their First Win of Season Glades Central's rst victory of the season couldn't have come at a better time and place. Fresh off their bye week, the Raiders (1-0 in District 14-5A play; 1-4 overall) pulled a muchneeded win over Suncoast, 47-0, in their Oct. 5 home game. Glades Central was expected to thoroughly dominate the Chargers it its district opener and did just that, thanks to three rst-half rushing touchdowns from senior triple-threat Will Likely. Woman Speaks Out About Violent Marriage New relationships generally bring feelings of excitement and dreams of many years of happiness together. Sadly, these dreams don't always work out for some couples. "Heather's" dream of a lifetime of wedded bliss ended within months of her marriage to "Scott." The happiness she dreamed of turned into physical and verbal abuse. Stein Family Named ‘Farm Family of the Year’ A second generation of farm families have now joined the ranks of those recognized as Western Palm Beach County's Farm Family of the Year. The Stewart Stein family was named "Farm Family of the Year" at the annual Farm Bureau Dinner Meeting on Tuesday, October 16. Following in the footsteps of his father, Fritz Stein, who won the award in 1989, Stewart Stein has been farming in the Glades since 1985.November48th Banquet Honors Cafe Volunteer For her sel ess giving of one of the area's most worthy charitable efforts, Martha Lynn Weeks received this year's Citizen of the Year recognition at the Belle Glade Chamber of Commerce Banquet. Standing up hesitantly to accept the award from a somewhat emotional Paul Allen, Ms. Weeks accepted the award Tuesday night at the Belle Glade Elks Lodge. Glades Central Trounces Boynton Beach to Win District 14-5A Title Glades Central is on the right track. By scoring a 40-6 road win over Boynton Beach on Friday, Nov. 2, the Raiders (4-0 in District 14-5A play; 5-4 overall) have won the District 14-5A title for the second straight season. Young Canal Point Reporter Interviews Chicago Mayor Was Canal Point Elementary's 10-year-old Jaylen Williams on the brink of exposing one of the most crucial anecdotal items of the 2012 Presidential Election just weeks be-fore the Election Day? Based on the response he received while interviewing Rahm Emanuel, President Barack Obama's former White House chief of staff and current mayor of Chicago, it seems that way. Emanuel gently turned down a question from the little reporter at the president's West Palm Beach campaign of ce, demonstrated in a video uploaded by the school's news staff on October 22. New Provost Appointed to PBSC Glades Campus The Glades campus of Palm Beach State College now has a new provost, Dr. Holly Bennett of Ohio. Dr. Bennett was selected out of a total pool of 129 applicants from around the country, reported Tabatha McDonald, college relations and marketing specialist. Belle Glade Prepares for Razing The city of Belle Glade is moving forward with one of the most ambitious demolition projects that they have taken on in the past ten years, and is armed with a list of 35 properties to be razed, along with a newly reinforced partnership with Palm Beach County to help the city in achieving that end. Annette Parchment, the City's Di-rector of Planning and Community Redevelopment Services, is excited about the project. According to her, the county's involvement nally makes moving ahead possible with cleaning out some of the more blighted areas in the community.DecemberGlades Central’s Season Ends in Class 5A Playoff Loss to Miami Jackson Glades Central rebounded in an amazing 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 3, 2013 REVIEWContinued  1 SEE REVIEW  10

When emergency crew arrived to assist in putting out the re, they found one person dead inside the home. Investigators are still trying to piece together what happened at the home in the 500 block of Southeast Second Street. The re was reported at about 3:30 a.m. Of cials have also not released the name of the person who died in the re, or any other information in connection with the death. One angle that re investigators are sure to be looking at is whether or not the re resulted from any suspicious activity.

Florida is part of Region 3 which includes Alabama, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. The volunteers were recognized for their efforts promoting lifejackets for both people and pets. Additional recognition was given for their boating/water safety outreach programs on land and on the water (Marine 970). The award will be presented at the National Water Safety Congress Summit held in San Antonio this March. Congratulations to our Volunteer Battalion on a job well done! Volunteer Battalion Earns Regional Award BY TONY YOUNG FWCWhether you oversee a large tract of land or own a smaller parcel, there are many wildlife management techniques you can use to help attract and keep wild turkeys on your property. Wild turkeys, like deer, are "edge species," because of their need for more than one type of habitat. Most of the time, with large tracts of land, this isn't a problem because the vast landscape is diverse enough. But in the case of smallacreage, one-habitat properties, it's up to you as the landowner to create varied, preferred habitats if you expect turkeys to use the property. For optimal turkey habitat, most experts believe a "rule of halves" should be applied to the landscape. What that means is that half of the area (and if you own a small tract, then include surrounding properties) should be in mature forests and the other half in early-succession openings, such as elds or clear-cut and plantation-cut landscapes. To create even better and more varied habitats for turkeys, you should offer differing age classes of forests and early-succession areas and make prescribed burning a big part of your management plan. This will enable new growth of succulent, woody ornamentals, native grasses and weedy-type owers. Hardwood lowlands provide travel corridors that turkeys and deer use extensively and feel comfortable moving through. Most wild turkeys prefer to roost in trees over or near water, so it's important to leave these areas undisturbed and free from timbering. Buffer strips of native grasses and woody ornamentals should be left unmowed where clearcut areas meet pine or hardwood forests. Hens require this thick understory cover for nesting. In Florida, most hens begin laying their eggs in late March or early April and the eggs take about 25 days to hatch, so take care not to burn or mow through August. After hatching, poults will roost on the ground for the rst 14 days, and during this period, approximately 70 percent of these young birds won't survive, primarily because of predation from raccoons, hawks, coyotes, foxes and bobcats. Attempts to control these predators are usually ineffective and economically unfeasible, so your efforts are better spent creating and maintaining good-quality brood habitat. Good brood habitat should hold food in the form of seeds, insects and tender, newgrowth vegetation for young poults to feed upon throughout the summer. It should consist of 1to 3-foot-tall grass and weeds open enough to enable the young poults to move about, yet dense enough to provide cover from the abovementioned predators. There is great interest nationally in the planting of food plots for wildlife, including for turkeys. Within extensive closed-canopy forested areas, food plots and/or game feeders are essential to keeping turkeys on your property. Where an open forest structure is maintained by adequate timber thinning and the use of re, such supplemental feeding is not as necessary because there is enough natural browse vegetation on which game can feed. On very large tracts of land, suf cient supplemental feeding can be quite expensive. In these cases, proper use of burning and timber-thinning management are more economical ways of providing food for turkeys and other wildlife. Food plots, though, are a lot more costeffective at feeding game than using feeders on moderate-sized pieces of property. In cases of smaller tracts, perhaps where food plots can't be utilized because the landscape is all lowland and you have a closed canopy, game feeders lled with corn or soybeans are your only option for attracting turkeys. When thinking about good food plot sites, avoid excessively wet or dry areas, and don't place them along heavily used roads to minimize disturbance and possible poaching. Look to create these openings along an edge where upland pines meet a hardwood drain. This way, you'll have an area where three separate habitats converge. Keep in mind that it is recommended that 2 percent to 3 percent of the land should be in these permanent openings. The best food plots are long and narrow rectangular shapes that follow the contour of the land. When possible, create food plots where the length (longest part) runs east to west. That way, the planted crops will receive the most direct sunlight. In the fall, cereal grains like wheat, oats and rye can be planted along with Austrian winter peas, clover and brassicas like turnips, rape and kale. Except for clover, these crops grow well in most of Florida. Clover requires a higher soil pH between 6.5 and 7 and it often won't grow in the sandy soils that make up most of our state, unless you apply enough lime to bring the pH level up. In the northern-tiered counties that border Alabama and Georgia, the soil is richer with red clay, and several varieties of clover and other legumes will grow well there. All of the above-mentioned cool-season forages can be planted by "broadcast" method after Oct. 1. At least twice as much fertilizer should be applied. Slightly cover the seed by pulling a drag over it, and try to put your crop in the ground when the soil is holding some moisture and rain is in the forecast. In the spring after May 1, you can plow under your "browned-up" fall crop and replace it with any combination of soybeans, cowpeas, browntop millet, sorghum or peanuts. If you can afford it, turkeys are especially fond of chufa. That, along with the other warm-season forages, can be broadcasted and planted just like the coolweather crops. Hopefully, using some or all of these wildlife-management practices will help bring in turkeys and increase your property's carrying capacity for birds. If you need assistance, contact the FWC's Landowner Assistance Program, the National Wild Turkey Federation, Natural Resources Conservation Service or your county agricultural extension agent. Here's wishing you luck obtaining your management goals and objectives. Follow ‘Rule of Halves’ in Managing for Turkeys

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. Christmas Comes to South Bay It’s a tradition that has been going on longer than many people remember: the city of South Bay spearheads a holiday gift giving event for its residents and their children, hoping to provide some Christmas cheer to many children who might other-wise go without. Jessica Figueroa, South Bay city clerk, was one of many several people organizing this year’s events on behalf of the city, which included everything from the toy giveaway that has marked the city’s efforts in previous years, to a holiday senior dinner offered to local residents 50 years of age and older. Wellington High School Comes Bearing Gifts for the Glades On Friday, Dec. 14, about 100 Wellington High School students brought bags of wrapped toys, bracelets, stockings, snacks, tree decorations and boom boxes to Belle Glade. They came bearing gifts of toys, smiles and their time and caring attention. Pioneer Park and Rosenwald students danced, decorated sugar cookie Reindeers, played “Santa says,” 7-up, made gingerbread men, holiday necklaces, and enjoyed countless other activities, crafts and danced on the pavilion stage with the Wellington High teens.

Two Thousand Thirteen: Launch OutBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH.D.+ Saint Martins ChurchIt was part of God’s divine plan to call shermen to be disciples. Fishermen have to learn selfdiscipline, deal with the uncertainties of catching or not catching, work in an environment that can suddenly become very menacing, tend to their boats and gear with precision (as a lonely sea is not the place to have an equipment failure) and must deal with the variability of a market for their catch once it is hauled in. These are the qualities that make for excellence in shing and discipleship. Disciples need self-discipline and must be ready to deal with challenges and rebuffs, be well-prepared in what they teach, recognize that they may nd themselves alone in their attempts to minister and know that their mandate is to be faithful but not necessarily successful. Success in the “market” comes from God, in His time and where He gives the growth. It is understandable that Simon Peter, the sherman, would feel frustration after working all night and not catching anything (Luke 5:5). When Jesus tells him to “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch(v.4)” his frustration is palpable. His rst reply is that they were working all night with no catch, but then he adds “…but because you say so, I will let down the nets (ibid, v.5).” The outcome was that “…they caught such a large number of sh, that their nets began to break(v. 6)” and had to call others to help them with the catch (v.7) because it was so large. The efforts to try one more time, to launch out were rewarded. I have often seen people come to the nearend of a project or accomplishment, then give up. One of my favorite “parables” is about the woman who decided to swim the English Channel – a 17-mile distance from England to France at the closest point. She swam and swam until she began to tire. After fteen miles, she gave up and swam back. I like to remind people to not give up, if only for the investment made in the project/marriage/ job/you-name-it that has already been made. We come to a new year. The news and prospects may well be bleak. The times have been dif cult and there is always the possibility that they will be as dif cult or even more so in the year to come. The unspoken frustration that Peter uttered “Master we’ve worked all night and haven’t caught anything!” can be heard in the voices of the hard workers who have felt their efforts have gone unrewarded or who have not had a chance to work; the ever-rising prices and ever-decreasing incomes and the families that have to “make do” under the circumstances. The sherman’s answer is something that I can see as a guide in such times “We did what we could but it was not rewarded; nevertheless, you’ve asked me to keep trying, and I will.” Whether 2013 will be a time of turn-around or more-of-the-same, nobody knows; what will make a difference is whether or not we keep going and keep seeking God’s guidance and intervention. Launch out; the possibilities are there. Our history as a nation and people is a history of people who launched out and gave us a strong and wonderful heritage. We owe it to them to follow their examples when they launched out into the unknown; to continue on their foundations and learn from their examples. Our spiritual heritage, likewise, is about people who launched out. They changed the world. We have their hope and promise that our efforts will not go unrewarded.The Ultimate ResolutionBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchIt’s fun to play with all the brand-new possibilities open to us on Jan. 1. Go jogging on Jan. 1, and you’ve exercised every day this year. You can come to breakfast and truthfully announce, “I’m so hungry, I feel as if I haven’t eaten since last year!” Get through lunch without eating potato chips or a candy bar, and this year re ects a whole new healthy and perfectly-kept diet regime. On Jan. 1, at least for some time, you’ve never yelled at the kids, forgotten to oss, thrown your dirty clothes on the bathroom oor, nor have forgotten to read the Bible all year! On Jan. 1 our whole life can be transformed. For one day at least, all our good intentions can be jump-started, and all our bad habits can be unplugged. At least for a few hours (or minutes?) the year is a perfect re ection of our best self. But Jan. 1 is followed inevitably by Jan. 2 and 3. Soon we will opt for staying in a cozy bed a few more minutes rather than plunging out into the cold for that jog. Pretty soon candy wrappers will start appearing in our desk drawer again. Pretty soon, we will surely get aggravated enough at a bad driver or frustrating situation to have unsancti ed thoughts. Before we know it, our socks are back on the bathroom oor, our dental oss is gathering dust, we are taking the elevator again, the hour of prayer will be replaced by an hour of paying bills and a big bowl of spaghetti will nd its way into our lives. For all but a few of us, most New Year’s resolutions get packed away with the last of the Christmas decorations. The problem with most of our resolutions is that we resolve to make changes in our lifestyles but miss restructuring our lives and changing the paradigms by which we live. We genuinely want to make good changes in our lives. Everyone wants to feel like they can make a fresh start. I’m all for making resolutions that make a difference. In fact, that’s my number one resolution for 2013: make resolutions that make a difference. But unless the changes we make are internal, not just external, they will never “take,” and they will never last. Instead of some “New Year’s Resolution,” let’s make a resolution that makes a difference. At Christmas we celebrated the birth of Christ, the coming into this world of a Savior for this world. But now it is time to celebrate the presence of the living Christ by embodying Christ in our life and daily interactions with those around us. A fresh New Year lies unblemished before us. Our life and our commitment to the ultimate resolution can help the love of God through Christ to transform the world. Let’s be blessed and be a blessing!

Gulf Coast farmers know that the invasive yellowmargined leaf beetle loves cooler temperatures, devouring leaves on turnips and other cole crops in fall and winter; now, a University of Florida study suggests the beetle’s cold tolerance could help it spread much further north than its current range. Researchers report in the November 2012 issue of Annals of the Entomological Society of America that the beetle’s eggs can withstand prolonged periods at 32 degrees Fahrenheit. That means the insect might survive in Kansas, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky and Virginia, says entomologist Ron Cave, an associate professor with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Native to southern South America, the beetle was rst reported in the United States in 1945 and is now found in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Larvae and adults feed on the leaves of many cole crops, with turnips being the preferred host. The pest also poses a threat to mustard, radish, collard, watercress, bok choy and napa cabbage. In conventional production, the beetle is susceptible to foliar insecticides but that’s no help to organic farmers, Cave said. So UF/IFAS researchers are investigating several biocontrol options, including the spined soldier bug, green lacewing, trap crops and fungi that attack the beetle’s larvae. In the meantime, Cave advises all cole crop producers to scout their elds thoroughly in early fall, so that infestations can be addressed before the beetles become too numerous. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 12 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 3, 2013 Crossword Puzzle The Anquan Boldin Foundation is proud to partner with Prep & Sports, Inc. to host The Inaugural High School Clash of Scholar Athletes.
