SELFLESS ACT SAVES VICTIM FROM SINKING VEHICLEBY AMANDA RAMOS-GUY e SunOn January 6, 2013, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce received an emergency call regarding a woman trapped inside her vehicle after driving into the Hillsborough Canal. The accident occurred at E Canal Street North and NE Third Street. According to Sgt. Marlow Altonen, “Innocent bystanders were watching this potential tragedy unfolding right before their eyes. Two bystanders jumped into the canal in an attempt to get the woman out, but the woman was too panic-stricken to follow their instructions to roll down the window.” Deputy Timothy Fay was the rst deputy to arrive. “I heard the call go out and started putting a plan into action in my mind. I started taking off the heavy equipment that is required for everyday duties as a road patrol deputy. When I arrived on the scene, I nished stripping off my gun belt and boots, because I knew I was going to have to go into the water,” he said. Sgt. Altonen said, “Deputy Fay jumped into the canal with little regard for his own safety, and made it to the back window of the rapidly submerging vehicle.” The baton he initially brought with him to strike the window would not shatter it. He called to the shore and asked for one of the newer model batons, which are denser than the model he had. It shattered the window with one strike. Once the window broke, water ooded the vehicle causing it to sink rapidly. Sgt. Altonen said, “Deputy Fay pushed his body into the car and was able to bring the victim out of the doomed vehicle. He showed an unwavering concern for the victim, who found herself in a life or death situation, which without his and others actions would have surely ended in the loss of her life.” Deputy Fay is a decorated Law Enforcement Of cer who has received a Life Saving Award from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce for saving a gunshot victim. Deputy Fay spent one year as a Reserve Deputy and the past two years as a full time deputy, serving the Belle Glade area. Deputy Fay is no stranger to service; he said, “Prior to coming to A week after a man was violently gunned down in Belle Glade, authorities have still not released the victim’s identity.

In addition will provide house calls for routine care of small/ companion animals. Dr. JL Shewmaker III 863-673-2665www.MyVetDirect.com/jlshewmaker 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 24, 2013 There has been a lot of talk lately about the costs of public employee pensions and whether governments have set aside enough money to make good on their promises. Concerns are real -and growing -about these retirement bene ts and what must be done to honor the obligations if enough money is not available to cover the bene ts public employees have been promised. When local and state governments have not set enough money aside to adequately fund pension obligations, the conversation very quickly turns to whether making up for the shortfall could mean tax increases, service reductions, or cuts in retirement bene ts. To best understand the size and impact of your government's pension liability, you should nd out what type of pension plan your government offers and its current pension obligations and funded status.New standards offer transparencyIn an effort to equip interested parties with the tools they need to evaluate government pension bene ts, new pension standards issued by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB)which are set to take effect in 2014 will require state and local governments to plainly show their net liability for pension bene ts on the face of the nancial statements, alongside other liabilities. The GASB is the independent group that sets accounting and nancial reporting standards for U.S. state and local governments. Under the new standards, anyone interested in pension information will be better able to assess a government's overall nancial picture as it relates to pensions by helping them evaluate such questions as: What pension promises has my government made? How much is it obligated to pay? How is my government doing compared to other communities?Where to nd this informationWhile governments are becoming familiar with and preparing for the new nancial reporting standards, there are steps that taxpayers and public employees can take to better understand their governments' nancial obligations: Contact your government of cials: Ask how your elected of cials are preparing for the changes and how they will address funding pension bene ts. Get talking: Talk to friends, neighbors, and colleagues and share what you know. Find out how pension funding issues may affect the future of your community. Stay Informed: As a citizen, you can access pension information on your own through Internet searches or government websites that provide access to local nancial reports. Whether local and state governments are prepared to pay promised pension obligations now and in the future are issues that will affect every taxpayer. What Taxpayers Need to Know About Government Pensions The ‘Florida Cowboy Poet’ to speak at eventBY BUTCH WILSON Clewiston MuseumJoin us Feb. 2, from 5 to 7 p.m. for a wonderful evening at the Hilliard Ranch, where rustic cabins nestled in oak hammocks and cabbage palms re ect memories of ole Florida and the cowboy era. Delicious, aged steaks (New York Strip) will be grilled to your culinary taste and served with succulent sweet corn, creamy coleslaw, baked beans and mouth watering homemade rolls. Dessert will be a southern tradition; homemade ice cream catered to the palette's delight. This lovely evening will usher in the musical sounds of soft string instruments accompanied by talented local singers. Our guest speaker is Stephen Monroe, a "Florida Cowboy Poet," who grew up in the saddle, in the cow pen and on the business end of posthole diggers. Mr. Monroe is a great entertainer that brings laughter and amusement as he reminisces the life of the Florida Cowboys in poems and stories. The delightful night must come to an end, but not before a lucky person with the winning museum ticket walks away with the door prize. The museum will also raf e a beautiful, handmade quilt that was crafted and donated by a local Clewiston resident. Tickets can be purchased at the museum where the quilt is currently on display. Partner, this annual event is one you don't want to miss, so buy a museum ticket, saddle up and meet us at the ranch for a stomping good time. Tickets can be purchased at the Clewiston Museum.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 24, 2013 By Margaret England Hendry-Glades AudubonDuring the Dec. 31, Christmas Bird Count (CBC) a solitary wintering Gray Kingbird was reported and photographed on the west side of Stormwater Treatment Area 5 (STA5), which is located at the east end of Deer Fence Canal Road in Southern Hendry County. This was the only report submitted for this species in the United States during the 2011-2012 CBC. On December 29, 2012 a solitary Gray Kingbird was reported by CBC teams at the same location. These ycatchers breed along coastal Georgia and Florida west to Mississippi, as well as the West Indies and the Caribbean during the summer. They winter in South Florida, West Indies, Central America and northern South America. Gray Kingbirds are about 9 inches in length and have a long thick black bill. They have pale gray head, a black mask, and mostly white underparts. Their all dark notched tail is fairly long. These birds are sometimes confused with a similar species, the Eastern Kingbird, which has a white-tipped black tail. Juvenile Gray Kingbirds are similar to the adults, but they have slightly duller plumage. The Gray Kingbird's call is a loud insect-like twittering "pe-chee-ry" with an accent on the second syllable. It also makes a harsh trill "trilill-ill-it. These birds are found between March and October to early December in coastal mangrove thickets and coastal woodlands. They are also found inland in small groves of palms and oaks. They are known as aggressive birds that will chase other birds from their territory. They are easy to see when they are perching on power lines or exposed limbs waiting for ying insects to y by. Gray Kingbirds make short uttering ights in order to catch insects above the ground or at the surface of the water. They sometimes hover brie y when searching for lizards, small vertebrates, and fruit. Courtship behavior in March to early April includes the male and female performing rising spiral ights. twittering, bill snapping, and the spreading of their tails and wings. Nesting normally occurs between early June and Early August. Nests are built 4 to 12 feet above the ground in Mangroves, in oaks hanging over water, or sometimes in coastal pines. This crude cup shaped nest is made of twigs, roots and grasses. Three or four pinkish to buff eggs mottled with shades of brown, gray, or lavender is incubated by the female for 16 to 18 days. Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers for free birding or photography trips. You and your guests are invited participate in upcoming birding trips Saturday, Feb. 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 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 24, 2013 Crossword Puzzle University of Florida taste scientist Linda Bartoshuk and her colleagues want to play a trick on you — but it’s for your own good. The UF team has identi ed a group of naturally occurring compounds that enhance the way people perceive sweetness, and believe that those compounds can be used to make foods taste sweeter using far less sugar and no arti cial sweetener. The group, which includes eminent scholar Harry Klee and professors David Clark and Charles Sims, all of UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, has collaborated for several years on avorand aroma-related research studies. Bartoshuk is a professor with UF’s Center for Smell and Taste, part of the UF College of Dentistry. UF technology licensing of cials are seeking companies interested in nding ways to turn the researchers’ ndings about avor into a commercially viable product that can be used to sweeten foods and beverages in a natural, more healthful way. Klee and Bartoshuk will make a presentation in February about the work at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Boston. The natural sweetener discovery was made during the group’s work, led by Klee, to break down the chemistry behind the complex avors in tomato. During that research, genes and biochemical pathways responsible for producing the volatile chemicals that give fresh tomatoes their characteristic avor and aroma were chronicled, and nearly 100 tomato varieties were tested by scientists and also used in taste tests by 13 panels of 100 people who rated each tomato’s taste. They knew that there are two ways humans evaluate smell: Orthonasal, or through the nostrils, and retronasal, behind the palate while eating. In retronasal olfaction, smell and taste interact. Capitalizing on interactions between retronasal olfaction and taste, the food industry has sometimes used sugar to intensify people’s perception of speci c avors. Following the tomato taste panels, Bartoshuk had reams of information about the chemical makeup of tomato fruit and everything that had been gleaned from the taste panels about what tasters liked and didn’t like. To discern which factors were playing the biggest roles in people’s tomato-taste preferences, she used statistics to examine how the fruit’s sweetness was explained both by avor ratings and sugar content. “If the sweetness is all due to sugar, then that’s the only variable that would’ve been signi cant,” she said. “But avor was highly signi cant. So suddenly we knew that the volatiles were making independent contributions to the perceived sweetness.” The UF team’s ndings were solidi ed by similar analysis following a study of taste in strawberries. “It turns out that fruit has been using this mechanism forever and we didn’t know it,” Bartoshuk said. “So when you bite into a strawberry, you think when it tastes sweet, you’re tasting sugar. But 10 percent of that ‘sweet’ is in the volatiles. And we didn’t know that. So lo and behold, we get all of these data and we do the math, and we’re stunned — we have a new source of sweetness, we create it in the brain, with volatiles.” Klee said the potential applications for a natural sweetener are vast and reducing the amount of sugar used in processed foods can only be good for people. “The fact is that people really like sweet,” he said. “And if we can make foods taste as sweet as they currently do without adding sugar? That’s really exciting.” Natural Compounds that Enhance Humans’ Perception of Sweetness “The fact is that people really like sweet. And if we can make foods taste as sweet as they currentl y do without adding sugar? That’s really exciting.”— Harry Klee, UF Institute of Food an d Agricultural Sciences

Orvell Howard, Chairman Karson Turner, Chairman Hendry County Local Planning Agency Hendry County Board of County Commissioners 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 24, 2013 With all the gizmos, gadgets and electronic media available these days, it can be tough for parents to get kids to sit down with good oldfashioned books. But regular reading, done for fun, is linked to better school performance and can expose kids to a world of knowledge. Experts advise parents of reluctant readers to, above all, keep the activity enjoyable. “Reading should never feel like a chore,” says David Borgenicht, father of two young children, author, and publisher of Quirk Books. “There are so many exciting books out there for all ages. It’s just a matter of nding what your child likes.” Here are some ways you can encourage your child to drop the remote and pick up a book instead: Start early: Good habits start young. So set aside time daily to read together until he or she can do so alone. Visit the library regularly to attend story time and other children’s literacy events, and to check out books. Set an example: Children learn by watching. If you aren’t already a regular reader, become one today. Stock up: The more types of reading materials in a home, the better students perform in reading pro ciency, according to the Educational Testing Service. So stock your home with newspapers, mysteries, biographies, poetry, historical ction and every genre of interest to your family. “You may even want to leave some books and magazines in the car so kids can squeeze a short read in during commutes,” says Rekulak. Think ahead: Serial novels can keep kids continually engaged in books. Look for something full of action and adventure that’s fraught with suspense, like the new Lovecraft Middle School series by Charles Gilman about the strange world of a creepy middle school. A nod to H.P. Lovecraft, the iconic horror author of the 20th century, the book is appropriate for boys and girls ages 10 and older. The newest in the series, “The Slither Sisters,” is about two monsters disguised as students who are plotting to abduct the entire seventh grade. Make it easy: Give your child the right tools he or she needs to read comfortably. An armchair pillow and a bedside reading lamp will make reading a comfortable experience. Tune out: Be sure to have a period each evening where no television, gaming systems or gadgets are allowed. Make this “reading time,” go hand in hand with something fun -like dessert – so there’s no protest. You can nd a children’s reading list of recommended books from the American Library Association at www.ala.org. After school, homework and extracurricular activities, reading may not be a child’s top priority. But by taking a few key steps, you can instill a lifelong love of reading.

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 and 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 and 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. 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.

in the Glades. The hurricane remains one of the worst in American history, with a death toll of nearly 3,000 and stories of a community wiped from the map. But it almost certainly was not the hurricane itself or the thought of losing her own life that frightened Ruth. “I prayed with a new secret fear: the fear of losing the little one close to my heart,” she wrote, remembering as her house “shook like a leaf” and water came up through the oor. Three months later, on Christmas Day of 1928, Milton Carpenter was born. This is one of the many experiences shared in Mr. Carpenter’s autobiography, “From the Hand of God to the Miracles of Orchids,” a 217-page book lled with anecdotes from his life. The book is described as a “multi-media” publication that includes a DVD and CD featuring the voices of Milton, his wife Nancy, and their three adult daughters talking about growing up in the Carpenter home. The project started two years ago when Marion Primmer, a close family friend, suggested that Carpenter put down his 50 years of experience in the orchid world in a book. Close friends convinced Mr. Carpenter that his life was something that needed to be shared. Carpenter is a leading authority on the cultivation of orchids. This unique education has opened many doors for the Carpenters, who have traveled to 60 countries and have been invited to speak at functions around the world. Mr. Carpenter is a Judge Emeritus with the American Orchid Society, and played a pivotal role in started a judging center for orchids in West Palm Beach, among many other achievements. When his third daughter, Peggy, was born, Milton went out to buy owers for his wife when she suggested he plant seeds instead that will bloom again. On Peggy’s rst birthday, “the plant opened up with beautiful owers,” he remembered. Along with his deep fascination with orchids, Mr. Carpenter thanks God for having blessed him with a full life. He weaves the spiritual and factual together in mesmerizing passages throughout the book. His hope for readers, and speci cally for the family members who will read the book, is a humble one: “I’m 84 years now, who knows how much longer I’m going to be here. I want something that will be there for my family, their children; something they can look back at and see because I’ve had such a rich life, and I wanted to share that with the world.” If you would like to learn more about Mr. Carpenter’s book, or would like to purchase your own copy, please visit www.evergladesorchids. com. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Descuentos en Telfono e Internet Disponibles para Clientes de CenturyLinkLa Comisin de Servicios Pblicos de Florida ha designado a CenturyLink como un Portador Elegible de Telecomunicaciones dentro de su rea de servicio para nes de servicio universal.

On Tuesday, Jan. 29, musician Ron McCurdy will realize his dream of bringing his production, “The Langston Hughes Project, Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz” to his home town of Belle Glade. The program will feature Dr. McCurdy, who graduated from Glades Central High School and is now a professor at the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California (USC), along with his quartet, in a multimedia presentation that includes jazz, spoken-word and images from the Harlem Renaissance. The Langston Hughes Project is a multimedia concert performance of Langston Hughes’ kaleidoscopic jazz poem suite titled, “Ask Your Mama: Twelve Moods for Jazz.” This is Hughes’ homage in verse and music to the struggle for artistic and social freedom at home and abroad at the beginning of the 1960s. It is a twelvepart epic poem which Hughes scored with musical cues drawn from blues and Dixieland, gospel songs, boogie woogie, bebop, progressive jazz, Latin “cha cha,” Afro-Cuban mambo music, German lieder, Jewish liturgy, West Indian calypso, and African drumming – a creative masterwork left unperformed at his death. Originally, Hughes created “Ask Your Mama” in the aftermath of his participation as an of cial for the ve-day Newport Jazz Festival of July 1960, where he shared the stage with such luminaries as Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Horace Silver, Dakota Staton, Oscar Peterson, Otis Spann, Ray Charles, and Muddy Waters. The musical scoring was designed to serve not as mere background but to forge a conversation and a commentary with the music. Though Hughes originally intended to collaborate with Charles Mingus, and then Randy Weston, on the performance of this masterwork, it remained only in the planning stages when Langston Hughes dies in 1967. Its recovery now in word, music and image provides a galvanizing experience for audiences everywhere. Utilizing engaging videography, this concert performance links the words and music of Hughes’ poetry to topical images of Ask Your Mama’s people, places, events and to the visual artists Langston Hughes admired and/or collaborated with most closely over the course of his career including the African-inspired mural designs and cubist geometries of Aaron Douglas, the blues and jazz-inspired collages of Romare Bearden, the macabre grotesques of Meta Warrick Fuller, the rhythmic sculptural gurines, heads, and bas reliefs of Richmond Barthe, and the color-blocked cityscapes and black history series of Palmer Hayden and Jacob Lawrence. Together the words, sounds and images recreate a magical moment in cultural history, which bridges the Harlem renaissance, the post World War II beat writers’ coffeehouse jazz poetry world and the looming Black Arts performance explosion of the 1960’s. Ron McCurdy and his quartet will bring the program to life on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 7:30 p.m at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center at Palm Beach State College in Belle Glade.
