Langston Hughes project to be held later this monthBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunLangston Hughes, for Ron McCurdy, carried all of the truths of a Black man living in America. The poet’s work seemed to speak to the struggles of the Afro-American, and seemed to speak it in a way that was honest, and more importantly, direct – at least direct enough to be understood by the masses, whether they were black or white or brown. McCurdy as a child was nurtured in this way, by parents who were educators in Belle Glade and understood the importance of a good education, and reinforced it through positive reections on the work of strong gures such as Hughes. Now, the University of Southern California professor is getting a chance to return to his native town and bring with him a presentation on a poem by Langston Hughes, set to music, videography, and spoken word. The work has attracted the attention of celebrities, like the famous rapper Ice T, who have lent their voices to the project. This event is being called, “The Langston Hughes Project,” and will be held at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center on Thursday, January 29. It is being presented in part by the center’s student activities department. Already, the presentation has received some critical acclaim, but Belle Glade represents a special arena for Mr. McCurdy. His father was principal at Glades Central for a short time, and then at Lake Shore for many years. His mother taught at South Bay Elementary for 30 plus years. With two parents steeped in the educational system, McCurdy Clewiston QB Tyler Clemmons plays contributing role in American’s 14-13 winBY NAJI TOBIAS e SunSeveral high school seniors from our area played in the 19th Annual Palm Beach County-Treasure Coast All-Star Game on Jan. 12. Played at John I. Leonard High School in Greenacres, outgoing seniors from Clewiston, Glades Central (Belle Glade), Glades Day (Belle Glade) and Pahokee helped the American team withstand a late rally from the National team in their 14-13 victory. Going into the fourth quarter, it seemed as if the Americans had the game all but wrapped up with a 14-0 lead. But the Nationals woke up, as Village Academy (Delray Beach) senior quarterback Larry Brihm – who overcame several sacks made by the American defensive linemen and 24-year-old man accused of raping 15-year-old girlA man was arrested last week after a posting a shocking video on Facebook – him raping a 15-year-old girl. Authorities arrested the man, Jeffrey Browning, 24, of Belle Glade on sexual assault charges after he reportedly captured the scene on his cell phone. The shocking nature of the crime itself was enough to land the man in jail; posting it to a public online forum for all to see was unspeakable. A probable cause af davit outlined how the suspect went about the crime: he locked the girl inside of a room and chocked and slapped the young girl before sexually assaulting her. The report mentions that the girl at times struggled to breathe. The girl said she tried to fend off the suspect, urging him not to assault her, but he would not listen.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 florida.newszap.com Check out these new features: • Daily Local News Updates • New interactive and easy to navigate format • Plus much, much more!Come see for yourself! 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 17, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonAfter 15 years of success in North America, the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) will open up to the entire world for the rst time in 2013. Anyone, from anywhere on earth, can participate by visiting www.birdcount.org and reporting the kinds and numbers of birds they see during the 16th annual count, Feb. 15 to 18. For the past ve years the Clewiston area was in the "Top 10" for the number of birds reported during the GBBC. Last year 124 species, for a total of 123,704 birds, were submitted for Clewiston. Other area communities reporting were LaBelle with 46 species and 1,389 birds, Felda 15 species with 840 birds reported, Moore Haven with 38 species with 601 birds, and Okeechobee with 80 species and 2,626 birds. Last year Florida reported the most individual birds in the United States, including 3,286 House Sparrows. These common birds, which were rst introduced in the United States in 1851, live and breed throughout Florida. House Sparrows aren't related to other North American sparrows. These noisy active birds are larger, have a rounder head, shorter tail, and stouter bill than most American Sparrows. Adult males have gray heads, white cheeks, a black bib, and rufous neck while females are plain buffy-brown with gray-brown underparts. Their backs are striped with buff, black, and brown. Juveniles are similar to the female, but have buf er underparts and soft textured feathers. The oldest recorded House Sparrow live to be 15 years and nine months old. Their songs are one or a series of "cheep" or "chirrup" notes. Females rarely sing. The male and female's call is a single "cheep" note. These sparrows are often seen taking dust baths. They throw dust and soil over their body feathers as if bathing with water. House Sparrows are commonly found in shopping centers where are seen hopping on the ground as they forage for grains, seeds, discarded food, and insects. These cavity nesters prefer to nest in manmade structures such as eaves of buildings, street lights and nest boxes, but will also nest in tree cavities or weave a nest of thick vegetation. Between March and July the female lays three to seven white, pale blue, or pale green eggs speckled with brown and black. The eggs are incubated for 11 to 14 days with the young edging at 15 to 17 days. Join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers for free birding or photography trips. You and your guests are invited participate in upcoming birding trips Saturday, Feb. 2 and 16, Sunday, Feb. 17 or Monday, Feb. 18, at STA5 (Stormwater Treatment Area 5).

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 17, 2013 When your very rst sh of a three-day tournament is 9-pounder, it could be fortune. When your very last sh of that three-day tournament is another 9-pounder, it could be fate. But when you win that same three-day tournament by a tiebreaker, someone from above is looking out for you. That's exactly how the week went for EverStart rookie pro Ben Todd of Pierson, Fla. His rst sh of the tournament on Thursday was 9-pounder. Then late this afternoon, with a small limit in his box and just minutes left in the shing day, Todd hooked and landed another 9-pounder and won the EverStart Series event on Lake Okeechobee by a tiebreaker. Todd's total weight 59 pounds, 3 ounces was the exact total weight of runner-up Trevor Fitzgerald who mounted a gallant charge for the title with an impressive 25-pound-10 ounce catch today. But since Todd was ahead of Fitzgerald going into the nal day, Todd got the winning hardware and the $40,000 check to go with it. "You see that right there," Todd said, seconds after his weight stopped at 16-3, the exact weight he needed to win. "That was not me. The Lord did thatnot me." Indeed it was a magical week for the 32-year old Todd who works on his family's farm in Pierson. It started with a 31-7 limit on day one. Then waned to an 11-9 limit on day two. And then surged again with the magic digits 16-3 today, thanks to the tournament winning 9-pounder. Todd found his winning area late on Tuesday afternoon. "I made one quick pass down through there, had 10 bites and shook them all off," he said. "But I saw two of them as I was shaking them off and they were big. I did not return to the area until Thursday morning. My rst sh of the day was 9-pounder and that kind of set the tone for the day as I kept catching big ones." Todd's key stretch included a line of reeds "in the middle" around the J&S area, which was protected from the predominant east wind that occurred throughout the event. "I was not shing the very outside reeds," Todd detailed. "And I was not shing all the way inside near the bank, either. This area had a line of reeds going down through the middle. The whole area was maybe three acres in size. And it's not like the sh were bunched up in a tiny spot. I caught them all the way down this line of reeds that ran north and south." Todd's key lures were a Gambler Fat Ace and a Tightlines UV UVenko. The Fat Ace was in a river bug color and the UVenko was in black and blue. He rigged the lures Texas-style with a 5/0 Gamakatsu ipping hook and topped them with 3/8-tungsten weights on 50-pound test PowerPro braid. "The sh were spawning around the reeds," he explained. "I couldn't see the beds and I couldn't see the sh, but I could just tell by how they were set up, they had made beds around those reeds. I'd pitch the bait in-between and around the reeds and just let it fall into where I thought a bed would be. I'd start the day with the Gambler Fat Ace and then when things got slow or I was re- shing some of my stretches, I'd switch to the UVenko to give them a different look. I think that UV technology really gives the lure a different appearance in the water something they've never seen before." "Today it was all the UVenko," he added. "I caught small sh early, but late in the day all the boats disappeared and things got calm and quiet and I got that indescribable feeling that maybe another big female or two was moving up. I kept looking at my watch30 minutes left20 minutes left10 minutes left and then that big one bit. When I got her in the boat I knew I had a shot at winning." Brandon McMillan of Clewiston, ended the week in third place with a three-day total of 56 pounds, 3 ounces worth $10,000. Big Mac' (a nickname coined by McMillan's sponsor, Lionel Botha, owner of Halo rods) is usually considered a committed mat puncher but this week he sampled the big jig bite as well. "The risk in committing to mat punching is that there is a lot of wasted time moving from one mat to another," McMillan explained. "A lot of times I kick the trolling motor on high and have to troll 30 or 40 yards to the next mat without shing and that's a lot of down time. If the mat bite is really strong, I don't mind that kind of down time. But if the mat bite is so-so, it adds up to a lot of lost shing time." "So I purposely stayed in water that offered a mix of both punching mats and pitching a jig to reeds," he continued. "That way, as I moved from one mat to another, I could pitch reed clumps in between with the jig. And I ended up catching a few bonus sh from the reeds, so it worked out well." McMillan's lures of choice included a Gambler B.B. Cricket and a Zoom Z-Hog on a 1-1/2ounce tungsten for punching and a -ounce 4X4 jig for pitching to reeds.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 17, 2013 Start of operations builds restoration momentum in a new yearBY GABE MARGASAK SWMWDWith two new pump stations in operation, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and its federal and state partners dedicated the completion of the C-111 Spreader Canal Western Project to help restore freshwater ows to Florida Bay, preserve clean water in Everglades National Park and maintain ood control for eastern communities. "The completion of the C-111 spreader canal is yet another example of the Department working with its partners to get the water right," stated Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. "Providing abundant and cleaner water is one step, among many, designed to restore America's Everglades." District engineers reported all components of the project are operating as designed and the system performed well during the 2012 wet season testing. With automated operation, the project stands ready to receive water and deliver bene ts to the Everglades ecosystem. In addition, scientists will begin compiling data to evaluate project performance and environmental response. "Witnessing the completion and operation of a project to help restore America's Everglades provides a sense of accomplishment and optimism for the future," said Joe Collins, SFWMD Governing Board Chairman. "Today we have taken another step toward our shared restoration goals." These goals are accomplished at the C-111 western project with a series of pump stations and canals that raise groundwater levels directly outside the eastern boundary of Everglades National Park. The higher water table creates a hydraulic barrier between the park and the urban areas of Miami-Dade County to retain fresh water in the park. This also helps achieve healthy salinity levels in Florida Bay by restoring the quantity, timing and distribution of freshwater ows via Taylor Slough to the bay ecosystem. Located at the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and spanning 850 square miles, Florida Bay is an integral component of the Everglades ecosystem and is a valuable economic resource for the region. The bay's waters serve as a nursery for an array of aquatic life and are home to dozens of commercially and recreationally important species such as spiny lobster, snapper and pink shrimp. A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) study found that Florida Bay contributed approximately $1.7 billion in the form of "destination spending" in one year alone. This project provides signi cant momentum for another year of continued Everglades restoration progress. With consensus between the State of Florida and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the District is also moving forward in 2013 with a suite of new restoration strategies for improving water quality in the Everglades. Work includes: Implementing a science-based technical plan Completing six projects that will create more than 6,500 acres of new Stormwater Treatment Areas (STAs) Creating 110,000 acre-feet of additional water storage SFWMD Completes Everglades, Florida Bay Restoration Project newszap.comFree SpeechFree Ads Public Issues Forums: Join the discussion!

said he had a learning that was different from the education that many others received. He understands the historical struggles of Belle Glade and its children. “Belle Glade has always been a separate and unequal environment,” said Mr. McCurdy. “It’s very dif cult for people of color.” McCurdy remembers his Belle Glade of four decades ago. He graduated in 1971, the rst class to graduate from Glades Central High School. He was part of the grand experiment of the day – the merging of Lake Shore and Belle Glade High School; two schools that had in effect segregated student populations. And he is coming back to the same place, at a different time. His greatest hope is to instill the same love for Langston Hughes and consequently the same determinedness for learning that he felt as a child and carried him into his own adulthood. “This is home for me, and this is a homecoming. At a very early age I was exposed to Langston Hughes, and I’m at a magical point in my adult life where I have a chance to present his work to others.” Does he believe that children will take the same lessons, or love for learning as he did? “I hope so. I hope it does for them what it did for me as a child, which was to ignite a love of learning and a love for reading, and a love for stories. Langston Hughes was someone who had an ability to reach anyone. His poems connect to people of all different ilk. I’m hoping that when we’re in town, we will have a chance to connect with the young people.” For more information on the Langston Hughes Project, visit www.ronmccurdy.com. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

Vaccinations available statewideThough u season has already started, the Florida Department of Health encourages residents and visitors alike to get vaccinated against in uenza ( u). Compared with most other viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, in uenza infection often causes a more severe illness, and at times can lead to death. "It is not too late to get vaccinated against the u, and we encourage anyone age six months and older to get a u shot," stated State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health, Dr. John Armstrong. "In uenza A is the most common u type in Florida this season and is countered by the vaccine." Be sure to watch for symptoms of the u, which can include headache, fever, a severe cough, runny nose or body aches. Contact your primary care physician or a local hospital immediately if symptoms appear. This is particularly important for people at high risk for serious complications from u. For those with the u, antiviral medication may shorten both the duration and severity of illness. The Florida Department of Health urges the following preventive steps for the u: Get vaccinated every single year, because as the u types change, the vaccine changes. Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, because germs spread this way.

BY KASSIDY ROBERTS AND KASSIDY REDISH FFAAgriscience students from Glades Day School took advantage of the opportunity to participate with Everglades Farm Machinery and many local farmers to calibrate sprayers. The sprayers are used to deliver needed chemicals to various crops in our area. Producers must distribute the correct amount of the chemicals to enhance the crop productivity as well as ensure environmental safety. The modern spray rigs are equipped with state of the art technology that monitors spray output, but it is important to collect samples and verify the systems are working correctly. Students learned the proper techniques for collecting the samples, measuring nozzle ware and calibrating tractor speeds. Students then loaded information into a program that veri ed the tractors onboard computer systems. Our students were excited to learn this life skill through a hands on activity. We also met many of the local farmers and farm manages, they informed our FFA members of careers available and encouraged our members to consider agriculture production in the Glades as a career option. The Glades Day School Agriscience program and FFA chapter would like to express our appreciation to Everglades Farm Machinery, Mr. Jeff Summersil and IFAS for the excellent learning experience. The FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agriculture education. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 17, 2013 Spray Rodeo SUBMITTED PHOTOS An anonymous employee at Pioneer Park Elementary was recently asked through an online class "Who was the best leader you've ever worked for?" The response had to be limited to two paragraphs. Their response: An Awesome LeaderMy current principal is the best leader I have ever worked with because he truly cares about the students and staff. He also maintains professionalism and integrity. He came on the scene after a period of great upheaval and emotional upset within our school. With his leadership, the entire environment and atmosphere of the workplace transformed from negative to positively charged! He is the best leader because he is fair, professional and he has a heart for our children. Mr. Miller originally studied business while in college and then switched to education. He said he knew he wouldn't make the same amount of money, but ultimately realized he would be more ful lled. He has instituted many positive changes at our elementary school. For example, we opened three Pre-K units. This allows students from our poverty laden area to attend pre-K and begin to gain literacy skills. He led the staff in rallying the community. The parents now pack the SAC/Parent Night meetings! Our staff trainings are geared toward helping students improve. We are also given the tools and support to do so. Mr. Miller transferred the SBT/RTI meetings to his of ce, to be held weekly. He also requests weekly updates on progress monitoring information be submitted to him personally. The goal is to ensure accountability for the academic growth of all of our students. He reads with students everyday, rewards students and announces their achievements over the intercom. He is a visionary who perceives others' gifts even when they don't. He likes to fortify the school's foundation by unifying those strengths. Mr. Miller is a devoted family man to his wife and two daughters. His strong family values equip him to empathize with the human and familial aspects of his employees' lives. He is genuinely caring and understanding. Yes, he's fun too! His excellent people skills, caring heart, professionalism and passionate vision make him the best leader I have ever worked for. The Best in Leadership SUBMITTED PHOTOA Roadrunner Holiday WishMrs. Dowers, Principal at Lake Shore Middle School believes that the best gift in life is the gift of giving.

linebackers – led a spirited drive that culminated with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Palm Beach Central (Wellington) running back Ray Wilson early in the fourth. At the 10:53 mark, the Americans lead was cut to 14-7. It stayed that way until it was 37 seconds left in the game. Immediately after the Americans punted the ball, Olympic Heights (Boca Raton) senior athlete Deago Sama – who was actually born in Belle Glade – broke free once he caught the ball and sidestepped several American would-be tacklers en route to a 50-yard punt return for a touchdown. The Nationals had a choice. They could try for the extra point and try to send the game into overtime, or they could go for a two-point conversion – and a possible win. The Nationals ultimately went for two, with Brihm under center. With the game-deciding play in action, Brihm couldn’t nd any open receiver nearby, so he was forced to scramble from the pocket and nd his way into the end zone. Unfortunately for Brihm, three American defenders quickly converged on him and stopped the dual-threat quarterback well behind the line of scrimmage. Game over. “Our team did all we could do, but it didn’t quite work out for us in the end,” said Brihm, who was named the Nationals MVP for his efforts. As for the Americans, their two scores earlier in the game proved to be enough. The winning team’s rst score came with 19 seconds left in the rst quarter, as Fort Pierce Central senior J.J. Stevens scampered his way into the end zone on an 8-yard run, giving the Americans a 7-0 lead. The score stayed that way until the third quarter, when Palm Beach Gardens senior running back Jermaine Carn powered his way into the end zone off a 6-yard run with 4:53 left. American’s second score was set up by a pivotal play from Clewiston senior running back Tyler Clemmons, who threw a nifty 12-yard pass to Stevens that got his team to the Nationals 1-yard line. Carn’s score occurred just two plays later, giving the Americans a 14-0 lead at that point. “Tyler’s an outstanding quarterback,” said Glades Central senior wide receiver Yvesner Ferdinand, who was one of four Raiders that were selected for the all-star game. “I can’t wait to see him develop and perform on the next level. He’s a very nice athlete who has a lot of potential.” Ferdinand commented on the Americans win. “Both sides of the ball did an outstanding job,” Ferdinand said. “Our line blocked pretty well for our quarterbacks. Our running backs and receivers were there to make plays. Our defense executed from start to nish. I’m just proud of how our players from the Muck were able to help this team win the game.” Aside from Clemmons, the other American quarterbacks were D.J. Juste (Port St. Lucie; American MVP) and Ant McGrew (Royal Palm Beach; originally from Belle Glade). Here’s a list of all the players from our area who competed in this game:ClewistonQB Tyler Clemmons RB Virthavious Robinson OL Clem NealyGlades CentralRB Aaron Baker WR Yvesner Ferdinand DL Willie Floyd DL Paul WhyteGlades DayTE Nathan Lee OL Cody McGaheePahokeeWR Devaris Osborne This was the nal high school football game for all of the area’s Class of 2013 player participants, which were represented by a variety of teams in Hendry, Martin, Okeechobee, Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 820 W.

He said that if you eat a frog rst thing in the morning that will probably be the worst thing you’ll do all day. So, if we start our day by tackling an important task, especially if it is a task we aren’t crazy about, then the worst will be behind us, and we realize a sense of freedom. This month I celebrate two score and 15 years of life. All my life I was taught to respect my elders, now I am one! According to the Scriptures, “advanced years should teach wisdom”, so here is some of mine. Pocket the ones you nd of value. Toss those you don’t. Life is not fair. When we realize this fact, then we can count the good times as blessings. A positive mind set can make our day. It’s better to set your mind so that when we wake up we can say, “Good morning, Lord”, instead of, “Good Lord, it’s morning.” Words can hurt people more than sticks and stones. Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them later. But when you forget, never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won’t have a leg to stand on. The easy way is not always the best way, and often the harder it is to do something, the stronger it makes me. A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour. To say no to someone is not wrong. We can’t avoid birthdays, so we might as well celebrate them. Let us welcome them as melodies in our lifesong; as mile-stones on our road of life. Let us use them as markers that remind us that we aren’t home yet, but we are closer than we’ve ever been. Yes, it may be true that the “golden years” aren’t so golden, and what once swung now bounces; and what once was tight, now sags. We can no longer eat like a horse and not look like one. We may face the reality that everything hurts when we wake up, and what doesn’t hurt, doesn’t work. Ponce de Leon didn’t nd the Fountain of Youth, and neither will we. The calendar pages still turn, the clock still ticks, and the body still gets older. But just because we are near the top of the hill doesn’t mean we’ve passed our peak. The wisest are not the ones with the most years in their lives, but the most life in their years. Our nal chapters can be our best. Our nal song can be our greatest. Our nal works can be our most magni cent. J.C. Penny was 95 years old when he stated, “My eyesight might be getting weaker, but my vision is increasing. Throughout the Scriptures, God’s oldest always seem to be rst team material. Look at Abraham and Sarah, Noah, and Moses. God uses the chronologically gifted. We were made to live forever. Now, however, we live but for a moment. Seize the moment. Life may not be fair, but God is good. Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God. We may not know exactly what tomorrow may bring, but we know who holds our future and what our future holds. Praise be to God!

Mix them up and try to put them back in order. Look for and enjoy Science all around us! Ms. Jasmine’s Reading Spot Greetings to all and welcome back to the Reading Spot! QAR is a questioning strategy that helps teach students that a relationship exists between the question given, the text, and the background of the reader. In this strategy, students are taught to use four question/answer relationships (QAR’s) to nd the information they need in order to answer the question. The teacher introduces QAR and explains the four types of question/answer relationships (QAR’s) The teacher models the QAR process by using a short story. First read the story and questions to the students. Then identify which QAR’s are evidenced through the questions given. Finally, answer questions and discuss. The teacher practices identifying the QAR’s with the class. The teacher provides independent practice. The teacher gradually increases the length and complexity of the texts used with QAR. The students continue to use QAR throughout the year, across the curriculum. QAR Descriptors/Questions for our students Right There The answer is in the text and is usually easy to nd. The information is found in one place. Think & Search The answer is in the selection, but you need to put together different pieces of information. Information comes from different places in the text. Author & You The answer is not explicitly stated in the story. You need to think about what you already know, what the author tells you in the text, and how it ts together. On My Own The answer is not text-based. You can even answer the question without reading the selection. You need to use your own experience and background knowledge. *I referenced....Raphael, T. (1982). Questionanswering strategies for children. The Reading Teacher, 36(2), 186-191.*** ESOL Testing Tips Hello to all in our educational community, including our most vital link: families! While following up on Ms. Jasmine’s reading tips, we had to say “Wow!” She is so spot-on with her advice and instruction! We must also concur with Ms. Parise’s advice on the importance of understanding diagrams and how they work. When the FCAT test asks to look at the diagram, many students do not understand that it is simply directing them to the picture! Further, not understanding the steps in a process or that ordinal numbers such as rst, second, and third simply refer to one, two and three, sincerely hampers our students test taking abilities. Such misunderstandings can be predominant with our ELL population including support and sheltered students. Many thanks to our Multicultural Department for offering so many remedies to improve our students’ comprehension. To access these supports, go to www.palmbeachschools.org/multiculutural, click on: employee, student or parent resources. These are excellent resources in a variety of content areas such as writing, science, and math, with a wonderful glossary in English, Spanish and Creole also. We would also like to encourage our families to check out the home language offerings in our parent center, including beautiful bilingual read-with-me books and Math and Science picture dictionaries in Spanish/ English and Creole/English. Happy Birthday Ms. Hall! Ms. Denise Hall came to us this year with many years in the classroom under her belt and leadership experience as a Reading Coach. She hit the ground running, quickly learning all of our students by name, and assisting and directing teachers with data driven and differentiated instruction. She implemented a Positive Behavior Model that has changed the over-all behavioral climate of Pioneer Park. She helps with all administrative aspects of the school, as well as redirective, positive discipline when needed. Ms. Hall helped ne tune the School Improvement Plan, assists with SAC presentation and performs countless mandatory jobs at our school, including managing our massive curricular resource inventories and needs. Her birthday was Friday, Jan. 11. We hope your birthday was awesome Ms. Hall, because you are! Thank you for all you do for the employees, students and families of Pioneer Park.

The Permitting Authority will issue a Final Permit in accordance with the conditions of the proposed Draft Permit unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is led under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. or unless public comment received in accordance with this notice r esults in a different decision or a signi cant change of terms or conditions. Comments: The Permitting Authority will accept written comments concerning the proposed Draft Permit for a period of 14 days from the date of publication of this Public Notice. Written comments must be received by the Permitting Authority by close of business (5:00 p.m.) on or before the end of the 14day period.

Petitions led by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S. must be led within 14 days of publication of this Public Notice or receipt of a written notice, whichever occurs rst. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may le a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28106.205, F.A.C.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Permitting Authority’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
