MAYOR ANNOUNCES HE IS RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTIONBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunThe qualifying period for those interested in challenging the status quo at the top levels of Pahokee leadership of cially began this week. While it stands to be seen how the election will shake out, at least one person is preparing to hold on to his seat: Pahokee Mayor J.P. Sasser. Sasser took a quick breath the moment he was asked if he would be readying a re-election bid. In a telephone interview, Pahokee Only Glades City With Elections in March BY NAJI TOBIAS e SunThe Muck has made history once again. For the rst time ever, ve homegrown football players from the area will appear in a Super Bowl. Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin (Pahokee alum) and San Francisco 49ers DE Ray McDonald Jr. (Glades Central alum) will probably engage in a collision course at some point in Super Bowl XLVII, which will be played on Sunday, Feb. 3 (CBS Network; 6:30 p.m.) at the Superdome in New Orleans. In addition to that, the Ravens (13-6 record) have three other players from the Muck who will suit up for pro football's biggest game: DE Pernell McPhee (Pahokee alum), WR Deonte Thompson (Glades Central alum) and RB Damien Berry (Glades Central alum). "It's something that's really good for our community," said Ray McDonald Sr., whose son, Ray. Jr., will be a defensive starter in his rst Super Bowl. "Anytime you get that positive feedback in Belle Glade and Pahokee, it's always awesome. I'm really excited for this moment and of course, I hope my son's team wins the Super Bowl." McDonald Sr. and his wife, Labrina, are heading for New Orleans today to enjoy a live look at all the Super Bowl action. For the couple, it's a moment they will like cherish forever, considering the multitude of obstacles their son has gone through in order to reach this point. McDonald Jr., a six-year veteran in the NFL, has recorded 38 tackles, a forced fumble and 2.5 sacks this season for the NFC champions. He's part of a defensive unit in what many NFL analysts say is among the best in the league. And he's contributing in a big way, considering the fact he has to play every game with a protective brace on his right knee. 24 month lease with approved credit through Ford Credit. $3133 plus tax, title, & license due at signing.

BY TOM NORDLIE UFConsumed by 3 billion people, rice is arguably the world’s most important food staple, and one reason for its popularity is that rice can be grown under ooded conditions that suppress weeds, making cultivation easier. In some parts of the world, water is in short supply, but farmers often devote what they can to rice farming, because the crop is so important. However, research has led to a simple but profound solution that requires less water – growing rice in elds, a practice called aerobic rice production. The practice relies on rainfall plus limited irrigation to meet the plants’ moisture needs. It requires about 40 percent less water than paddygrown rice, according to a University of Florida study in the current issue of Agronomy Journal. Aerobic rice production is gaining popularity in India and Southeast Asia, particularly in drought-stricken or upland areas, said Rao Mylavarapu, a professor with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and one of the study’s authors. Mylavarapu is working to address a major challenge in aerobic rice production: yield. In the two-year study, conducted in Hyderabad, India, researchers grew rice in irrigated elds and paddies. The rst year’s aerobic rice harvest weighed 39 percent less than the paddy harvest; the second year the difference narrowed to 15 percent. “Right now, there’s no way you can get the same yield under optimal conditions,” he said. He explained that grain production is in uenced by a rice plant’s ability to use nitrogen, which in turn is in uenced by moisture availability. In other words, paddied plants grown in standing water have an advantage over aerobic plants receiving modest irrigation. And, the rice varieties used for paddied production are different from the ones in aerobic production. But in a drought there may not be enough water to keep rice paddies ooded. Under those circumstances, aerobic production can ensure that a community has rice to eat, while the paddied plants wither away. “The real impact of aerobic rice will be shown in a rainfall shortage year,” Mylavarapu said. “However, in a rainfall shortage year, we have to be able to provide supplemental irrigation to aerobic rice and keep the root zone moist. So if there’s a very bad drought, even aerobic rice will fail.” He adds that few rice varieties have been developed speci cally for aerobic production. In time, breeders may develop improved varieties and close the “yield gap” with paddied rice. Currently, Mylavarapu’s focus is on another aspect of the cropping system – overall grain production in systems where rice is rotated with corn. This approach is used on about 8.65 million acres in Asia because little soil preparation is needed to plant corn in a eld following aerobic rice. In contrast, rice paddies must be drained and converted from a ooded anaerobic system to an aerobic system before the land can be used for corn. In the study, researchers found that corn yields were about 5 percent higher when the corn followed aerobic rice, compared with paddied rice. So far, aerobic rice production hasn’t caught on with U.S. farmers, but that could be just a matter of time, he said. “In the U.S., water quality is usually a bigger issue than water quantity,” Mylavarapu said. “Certainly, it (aerobic rice) will become a very important factor for the U.S. to consider in the future, with climate change.” The United States is the world’s 10th largest producer of paddied rice, with annual production of about 12 million tons, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization. Arkansas is the leading U.S. rice producer; Florida ranks seventh. The study was funded by the U.S.-India Agricultural Knowledge Initiative through the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The research team included Mylavarapu, UF colleagues Dakshina Kadiyala and Yuncong Li; Gudigopuram Reddy of North Carolina A&T State University and M.D. Reddy of Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University in Hyderabad, India. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 SFVS(South Florida Veterinary Service)Providing ambulatory service to the South Florida area, focusing on food animal and equine medicine/surgery.

Norovirus is highly contagious and may cause vomiting and diarrhea and stomach cramps. Anyone can be infected with noroviruses and get sick. Also, you can get Norovirus illness more than once during your life. Symptoms usually start within 24 to 48 hours and most people begin to feel better within one or two days and have no long-term health effects. People with Norovirus illness are contagious from the moment they begin feeling sick until at least three days after they recover. But, some people may be contagious for even longer. There is no vaccine to prevent Norovirus infection. Also, there is no drug to treat people who get sick from the virus. Antibiotics will not help if you have Norovirus illness. This is because antibiotics ght against bacteria, not viruses. Norovirus can spread quickly from person to person in crowded, closed places. People can become infected with the virus in several ways including: Touching surfaces or objects contaminated with the virus, and then placing their hands in their mouth. Eating food or drinking liquids that have been contaminated with the virus (usually from the food handler not washing their hands properly) Eating food or drinking liquids that are contaminated with Norovirus (someone gets stool or vomit on their hands, and then touches food or drink) Having direct contact with another person who is infected and showing symptoms (caring for someone who is infected, sharing food or eating utensils with someone who is infected) Noroviruses are the most common cause of gastroenteritis in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that each year more than 20 million cases of acute gastroenteritis are caused by noroviruses. That means about one in every 15 Americans will get Norovirus illness each year. Norovirus is also estimated to cause over 70,000 hospitalizations and 800 deaths each year in the United States. The best way to reduce your chance of getting Norovirus is by following some simple tips: Wash hands frequently, especially after going to the bathroom, changing diapers, before eating and prior to preparing food Carefully wash fruits and vegetables, and cook foods completely before eating them Clean and disinfect contaminated surfaces immediately after an episode of illness by using bleach-based household cleaners Immediately remove and wash clothing or linens that may be contaminated with the virus after an episode of illness (use hot water and soap) Flush or discard any vomit and/or stool in the toilet and make sure the surrounding area is kept clean People who have symptoms of vomiting or diarrhea should not prepare or handle food until they are completely free of symptoms and for at least three days after all symptoms are gone. Any foods that may have been contaminated by an ill person should be thrown away. For additional information, you can visit www.cdc.gov/ Features/Norovirus/ or talk with your healthcare provider.

I hope all is well. I have compiled a small list of eight things “good readers do” to help support our students learning in the next few weeks. As we support our students, please go over these reading tips with them. 1. Help students understand the importance of previewing the text prior to reading. 2. Teach students to activate background knowledge to make “self to text connections” and recalling that the answer to the reading question is built within the text. 3. Teach students to make notes of their predictions and modify their notes as they read. 4. Help students understand the importance of monitoring their comprehension as they read by asking the question, “Does it make sense?” If not reread. 5. Model to students how to make evaluations, especially about what characters do...take notes of details pertaining to the characters. 6. Help students understand the importance of reading the title, heading and captions. 7. Help students identify the mood of the passage (happy, sad, scary, intense, dramatic, etc.) 8. Teach students how to use their thinking skills by identifying what the topic is all about. Maximizing Learning We are in the running to the nal countdown. Principal Miller, Ms. Jasmin, our Reading Coach, Ms. O’Neal, our Math Coach, Ms. Parise, our Science Coach and all of the devoted teachers and staff of Pioneer Park wish to stress the need for perfect attendance among our student population. We need to maximize every moment of student learning. Families, we need your help in getting children to school on time and ensuring their attendance every day! If your child is in a Saturday tutorial, our Assistant Principal, Ms. Denise Hall, asks that you please bring them! Thank you for partnering with us to give your child a successful educational experience. Data Driven Instruction Principal Miller and Ms. Tracy Klopman, our Learning Team Meeting facilitators, guided teachers through use of the EDW Diamond report at this week’s grade level learning team meetings. The Educational Data Warehouse of the district presents a diamond report which compares the school’s performance on the recent Winter Diagnostic testing results to those district-wide. Teachers were shown how to ne tune this report to discover their students’ needs. The report provides links to test questions and their benchmarks. It shows the question, distracter answers and which students correctly answered the question. It also sorts students into categories designed for small group differentiated best practice instruction. Ms. Parise’s Sensational Science News The students at Pioneer Park enjoyed many scienti c experiences this week. Pine Jog visited the fth graders to utilize solar energy to power a fan. STEAM artist Jean Howard also engaged them in an activity about moon phases. Resource Depot created books with the third graders about forces which were made out of donated crafts. The Palm Beach Zoo educated the rst graders about habitats and the importance of resources. Mr. Jacques, the second grade teachers and students, and the pre-kindergarten teachers and students have been maintaining our beautiful vegetable gardens. The Science Club students are going to clean the vegetables for consumption. A portion of the $200 Green Seed Money Grant was used for sprinklers, tomato stakes, hose splitters, and pesticides.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 31, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Indigo Bunting, sometimes called a “blue canary,” usually migrates in large ocks at night, using the stars for guidance. This migratory bird is found from southern Canada to Northern Florida during the breeding season and from Southern Florida to Northern South America during the winter. These small sparrow-sized stocky birds have short tails and a thick conical bill. Breeding males are blue with a richer blue head and shiny silver-gray bill. Females are brown above with a whitish throat, faint streaking on the breast and sometimes a touch of blue on the wings, head or tail. Immature males are brown with patches of blue. Young Indigo Buntings learn their songs from nearby males. Those a few hundred yards apart usually sing different songs, while those in the same “song neighborhood” will have nearly identical songs (Cornell Lab All About Birds). The male Indigo Bunting’s song is a series of sharp, clear, high-pitched notes that last about two seconds and then trail off at the end. Their calls are a “spik” similar to other bunting species. The oldest known Indigo Bunting lived to be eight years and three months old. They prefer living in weedy or brushy areas near groves, elds, forests or backyards. Their diet consists mainly of insects, spiders, seeds, buds and berries and they can be attracted to backyard feeders with thistle or bird seed. These birds have been con rmed nesting in northern peninsula of Florida from late April to July. The male watches as the female weaves a 1.5 inch open cup of leaves, grasses, stems, and bark that is wrapped with spider webs. It takes two to eight days to complete the nest that is lined with grasses, roots, bark, thistle and sometimes hair. The female lays two to six white eggs which are incubated for 12 to 13 days with the young edging when they are nine to 10 days old. You can help document wintering birds including Indigo Buntings as well as resident species during the Feb. 15 to 18 Great Backyard Bird Count. Anyone from any place can participate. It’s easy to be part of this annual event. First, create a GBBC account at www.birdsource.org/gbbc. Second, count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the GBBC and nally enter your results on the GBBC website www.birdsource.org/gbbc (or eBird).

God and The Super BowlBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchThis Sunday is a national day of prayer. Okay, not “of cially.” It’s not sanctioned by any denomination or governmental decree. But there will still be more prayers sent heavenward this Sunday than on any other given Sunday. Yes, it is Superbowl Sunday, and there are prayers going up for that favorite team by players, family members, coaches, investment brokers and fans all over the country. And, like the pizza-hawker “Papa John’s,” who promised a free pizza to anyone who correctly calls the “head or tails” coin toss that starts the game, half of the people will have their prayers answered. Half will not. Does God really care who wins the game? Come to think of it, can our prayers have an inuence on the outcome? My mind is suddenly lled with images of Sunday afternoon heroes, kneeling in the end zone in a brief prayer after scoring a touchdown, or groups of players dropped to their knees, heads bowed, in the middle of the eld at the conclusion of a game. I hear post-game interviews with sweaty stars: “Great game, Biff.” “Thanks, Bud. The rst thing I have to say is that I owe it all to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We kicked some butt out there today. WHOO-OOH!” I confess I am more than glad that there are public gures acknowledging the importance of faith in their lives. That’s good! But I’m not so sure about the implication that Jesus Christ helps anyone “kick butt” on or off the eld except maybe in cases of spiritual warfare. I don’t believe coin tosses and football games are the best testing grounds for our prayer life. “Hail Mary’s” aren’t the only ways to connect with the divine. Prayer is paying attention to the movement of the Spirit in our lives. Praying is opening ourselves up to the presence of the divine. Jesus had three years in which to save the world. How did He spend those three years? Writing a manuscript? Building a temple? Starting a new religion? No, He spent those three years investing everything He had in a team. This team He chose would be charged with continuing His ministry and carrying the gospel into and throughout the world. But before He chose His team, He spent the night in prayer (Luke 6:12-13). The greatest decision Jesus made for the sake of the gospel was made after He spent the night in prayer to God. (Luke 12:12) Only after that extended time in prayer did Jesus chose his disciples. That raises some questions. Before you make important decisions in your life, do you pray? Do you ask for God’s guidance? Do you ask for God’s help to be all that you can be in upcoming events? Prayer changes things. But more importantly, prayer changes us. A prayer-conditioned life conditions us to receive God’s presence and power. So should players be praying for a victory this Sunday? I believe the outcome will be dependent on human effort, not divine intervention. God will inspire players to do their best, but the outcome will be up to them. They should ask for guidance, wisdom and courage. Hopefully, God will be giving the players what they need to deal with adversity. They should ask God to enable them to use their talent to the utmost capacity and to be the best they can be out there. Does God care who wins the Super Bowl? No. But God does care about the players, God cares about you, God cares about me. And that’s all that any of us will ever need. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 31, 2013 Religion Column John Hicks Crossword Puzzle Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have risen 0.6 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.41/g on Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has increased 4.5 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.31/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 12.8 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 7.3 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 4.5 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 6.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “The national average has picked up in the last week on the apparent start of re nery maintenance season,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Re nery production has taken a hit in the last week as companies begin looking towards the summer driving season, utilizing this time of year for maintenance and any upgrades before gasoline demand races higher for the summer season,” DeHaan said.

he stated that he was planning to complete his qualifying paperwork for a return to the mayor’s seat. “As of right now, I am running,” he said. Asked what he felt he might be challenged on if he does see opposition, the mayor pointed to his campaign to tackle the less savory aspects of running a city, including making the hard decisions to terminate those who are not working in the best interest of Pahokee. “Right now we’re still in the process of cleaning up corruption in the city,” the mayor said. “The main thing is that there are those who know I’m taking the lead in doing it, and those who think I’m the reason for all of it. It’s no different from what it’s been for the past 13 years.” Along with the mayoral seat, two other seats will be up for grabs on March 12 – or if there is no opposition, sooner. Seats currently held by longtime Commissioner Allie Biggs, as well as Commissioner Diane Walker, are in the running. No word yet on whether those commissioners will be seeking re-election. According to Anika Sinclair, Pahokee city clerk, qualifying period ends Feb. 12 at noon. The Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Of ce is reporting that the Pahokee race will be the only one participating in the upcoming uniform municipal election, with the cities of South Bay and Belle Glade not participating in these races. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 31, 2013Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

Hendry Regional Medical Center’s laboratory has been awarded accreditation by the Accreditation committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on the results of a recent on-site inspection. Ronald Gif er, M.D., the Laboratory Medical Director, was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the “excellence of the services” being provided. Hendry Regional Medical Center’s laboratory is one of more than 7,000 CAP-accredited laboratories nationwide. The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, which began in the early 1960s, is recognized by the federal government as being equal to or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program. During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine the entire staffs’ quali cations, the lab’s equipment, facilities, safety program and record, as well as the overall management of the laboratory. This stringent inspection program is designed to speci cally ensure the highest standard of care for the hospital’s laboratory patients. The hospital lab has scored perfect for the last two testing cycles sent to the lab to con rm testing accuracy and precision. These two cycles included 428 individual tests. The CAP is a medical society serving nearly 17,000 physician members and laboratory communities throughout the world. It is the world’s largest association, composed exclusively of board-certi ed pathologists, and is widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance. The CAP is an advocate for highquality and cost-effective medical care. James Bancroft, the hospital’s Administrative Laboratory Manager, commended his staff for their efforts in maintaining a high-quality clinical laboratory at Hendry Regional Medical Center. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 31, 2013 For parents of newborns, those rst months can be exciting, challenging and even a little frightening. While your instincts will kick in to guide you through many parenting challenges, when certain issues arise, it’s important to seek help from your best-informed resource: your pediatrician. “Whether you’re having dif culty breastfeeding or have questions about vaccinations, your pediatrician is the best person you can turn to for answers,” says Dr. Thomas McInerny, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). “Certain problems can worsen if they aren’t addressed quickly, so keep your pediatrician’s number accessible.”Feeding and NutritionBreastfeeding is a great step mothers can take to safeguard their baby’s health. Human milk bene ts the immune system and protects your baby from infections. Research suggests that breastfeeding may help protect against obesity, sudden infant death syndrome, and some cancers. To ensure a successful start, McInerny advises: Take breastfeeding classes before giving birth. Place your newborn skin-to-skin against your chest or abdomen within an hour after birth. Sleep in the same room as your newborn. Breastfeed eight to 12 times a day. Monitor urine and stool output. If you’re having problems, nd a lactation consultant or talk with your pediatrician. Waiting to seek help could interfere with your ability to produce milk or your baby’s ability to get crucial nutrition. And dehydration can be dangerous or even life-threatening. McInerny advises new mothers experiencing any of the following symptoms to call their pediatricians right away: Nursing sessions are consistently briefer than about 10 minutes or longer than about 50 minutes during the rst few months. Your baby still seems hungry after most feedings or is not gaining weight on the recommended schedule. Your newborn frequently misses nursing sessions or sleeps through the night. You’re experiencing pain that prevents you from breastfeeding. You think you’re not producing enough milk. “Pay attention to your baby’s pattern of feeding,” advises McInerny. “Don’t stop asking for one-on-one guidance from your pediatrician or lactation specialist until you get the help you need.” At your appointment, your pediatrician will weigh your baby to make sure he or she is on track nutritionally and can observe your feeding technique and offer guidance.VaccinationsNewborns need vaccinations in those rst months to protect against potentially dangerous diseases, including hepatitis B, polio, whooping cough (also known as pertussis), tetanus, diphtheria, Hib, pneumococcal and rotavirus. The pediatrician can discuss recommended immunizations at each visit. A new report from the Institute of Medicine con rms the vaccine schedule is safe and signi cantly reduces your child’s risk of disease. “Talk with your doctor about whether you need a whooping cough booster or u shot yourself,” says McInerny. “Whooping cough can be deadly to young infants. Immunizing family members creates a ‘cocoon’ of protection around them.” Mothers should receive whooping cough vaccine and u shots during pregnancy. Anyone who will be around the baby should also be immunized. More information on keeping newborns happy and healthy can be found at www. HealthyChildren.org. When in doubt, call your pediatrician sooner rather than later. When Should You Call The Pediatrician? Hendry Regional Medical Center’s Laboratory Receives CAP Accreditation SUBMITTED PHOTO Researchers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) documented fewer manatee deaths in 2012 than in the previous three years, as milder winter temperatures led to signi cantly less cold-related mortality. The FWC recorded 392 manatee carcasses in state waters last year, of which a quarter were determined to be from human-related causes. FWC researchers, managers and law enforcement staff work closely together to evaluate mortality data and identify necessary actions. Actions may include steps to protect vital habitat or special patrols to ensure compliance with manatee speed zones. The FWC is committed to conservation actions that reduce human-caused manatee deaths, including those related to watercraft. The FWC’s Division of Law Enforcement, in cooperation with partner agencies, uses knowledge of local boating conditions and habits, well-posted speed regulatory zones and up-todate manatee information as part of its on-thewater enforcement operations. Researchers documented 81 watercraftrelated deaths in 2012, slightly below the yearly average of the past ve years. “Protecting manatees is a priority,” said Maj. Jack Daugherty, FWC’s Boating and Waterways section leader. “Our of cers take time to patrol manatee zones, identify areas that have presented problems, and generally work with the public to educate them on how to boat safely and in a way that doesn’t harm the environment.” To help prevent cold-related deaths, the FWC continues to work with partners to enhance availability of warm-water sites important to manatee survival. Among recent efforts was the restoration of Fanning Springs by the FWC and partners, which improves manatee access to a natural warm-water habitat off the Suwannee River.

BY KASSIDY ROBERTS AND KASSIDY REDISH FFANine Glades Day Future Farmers of America (FFA) members competed in ve different events trying to earn a rst ever District FFA Leadership Career Development Event for Glades Day School. The competition was held Thursday, January 24 at the Avon Park campus of the South Florida State College. Dylan Abowd, a senior at Glades Day, won the tractor operations contest. The contest consists of a written exam, a tractor walk around and a driving skills course. This is the rst year Dylan has competed in the event. Savannah Zipperer also won the middle school prepared public speaking contest. Savannah wrote a speech that explains how inheritance tax hurts family farms. She not only wrote a great speech, but also delivered the speech like a seasoned professional. Both Savannah and Dylan will advance on to the state level competition and represent Glades Day Schools at the State FFA Convention. Also competing in the contest was the parliamentary procedure team. The six member team had to perform an assigned parliamentary motion and demonstrate eight parliamentary laws in less than ten minutes. The team did an excellent job and came in second place. The team members were Kassidy Redish, Maddie Mills, Caroline Stein, Savannah Zipperer, Kathryn Weeks and Colton Pope. Rana Hilliard competed in the Extemporaneous speaking contest. In order to compete in this event she had to draw a topic at the contest, write a speech and deliver it in thirty minutes. Rana also worked very hard preparing for the contest and learned that she has a special talent for impromptu speaking. Mckenzie Redish competed in the FFA Creed speaking contest. She memorized the ve paragraphs FFA creed and delivered it to a panel of judges that also asked questions about the meaning of the creed. Mckenzie did a great job representing our chapter and she is also a district runner up. All of the career development events are designed to give students a deep understanding of speci c skills that will better prepare them for the future. Glades Day FFA Chapters are very proud of all members that have spent their personal time practicing and preparing for competitions. These career development events not only help our members, but it also helps our FFA chapter gain recognition throughout the state. The FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 31, 2013 Glades Day School FFA Members Win Two District Titles SUBMITTED PHOTO SUBMITTED PHOTO

The reported cases of in uenza like illness in Palm Beach County has now moved into the moderate range as a result of two reported outbreaks in south and central county, increased absences in some schools and elevated visits to hospital emergency rooms throughout the county. Historically this is the time of year the Health Department sees a rise in activity that continues into March. People still have time to protect themselves from the u by getting a preventive u shot and taking other precautions. The Palm Beach County Health Department is offering u shots at the South Florida Fair; Jan. 29, and Feb. 1 from 12 to 4 p.m. on each of the days. There is no charge for the vaccine but it is required to obtain an admission ticket to the Fair. Numerous other locations are available in the area. "We are encouraging anyone who hasn't gotten their u shot to do so," said Health Department Director Dr. Alina Alonso. "With the number of cases on the rise it can offer excellent protection." Dr. Alonso added that it is also important to stay home if you are sick to protect others from getting the u, especially students, teachers and those working in congregate living facilities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 30,000 people die in the United State every year from complications associated with the u. Other preventive measures recommended by CDC are: Completely cover nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing to prevent germs from going air borne, wash hands with soap and water or use a hand sanitizer when not available, properly dispose of used tissues and stay home if you are sick. Flu shots are available throughout the county at physicians' of ces, pharmacies, walk-in clinics and other health related facilities.

The “surprise” will be announced during a special assembly at her school joined by her family, mentor, school administration, college readiness coach, Leadership council members and several community and business leaders. The Take Stock in Children “Leaders 4 Life Fellowship” was created in partnership with the Asofsky Family Foundation to recognize and reward exemplary graduating seniors enrolled in the Take Stock in Children program. As one out of ve lucky students chosen throughout Florida, Esther Benette will be provided with funds for housing, meals, computers, books, supplies and other college-related expenses and internship opportunities in addition to her full-tuition scholarship provided by Take Stock in Children. Student Awarded Take Stock in Children’s ‘Leaders 4 Life Fellowship’ Organization plans to head west to Belle Glade where need is greatClinics Can Help, one of Palm Beach County’s only organizations that accepts and provides donations of gently used, unwanted medical equipment and supplies, is proud to announce they are the recipient of a $100,000 grant from Allegany Franciscan Ministries. “We have selected Clinics Can Help as a recipient for one of our major grants because of the work they do for residents of Palm Beach County,” said Upendo Shabazz-Phillips, regional vice president for Allegany Franciscan Ministries. “They are a very grassroots organization, with a simple mission, that is making a world of difference.” Allegany Franciscan Ministries, a non-pro t Catholic organization that seeks to improve the overall health of individuals by increasing access to health services and information, selected Clinics Can Help for the work they are doing to bring quality health care supplies and equipment to more than 1,400 individuals per year. “It is vital to a person’s care that they have proper medical equipment and supplies,” said Owen O’Neill, executive director of Clinics Can Help. “The appropriate equipment, such as a hospital bed or a wheelchair, can help a patient by decreasing their chances of injury and improving their quality of life. A lack of insurance, or proper funds to purchase the equipment should not stand in the way of an individual having the best possible tools to manage or heal their illness. Thanks to Allegany Franciscan Ministries we are able to continue our work to make this happen for those in our community in need.“ Clinics Can Help was founded in 2005, by hospice nurse, Owen O’Neill. Since then, the organization has grown to a staff of four and has helped thousands of individuals, and ultimately families, throughout Palm Beach County. Clinics Can Help Awarded Grant to Expand Services SUBMITTED PHOTOReading Counts CelebrationKEC/Canal Point Elementary students who met their reading goals enjoyed ice cream and a movie for the month of December! McDonald Jr., a Pro Bowl alternate for the NFC last season, has shown an uncanny ability to play at a high level despite having to go through three reconstructive surgeries on his right knee. During the 2008 season, McDonald Jr.’s second in the league, he tore his ACL and was subsequently required to undergo surgery and rest for an extended period of time. It was not the rst time McDonald Jr. and his family had to go through that excruciating experience. McDonald Jr. suffered two ACL injuries in his right knee and another in his left knee during his time as a defensive end in college for the Florida Gators. Despite the setbacks at Florida, he was able to help the Gators win a national championship during his senior season in 2006. The setback-to-comeback story for McDonald Jr. may repeat itself yet again come Sunday night. “To be able to accomplish with what he’s had to overcome, it’s pretty amazing,” McDonald Sr. said. “A lot of people don’t know that, but it’s a testament to his will, determination and drive to play the game he loves.” The same could be said for Boldin, who has overcome a series of setbacks throughout his 10-year NFL career. The Ravens veteran wideout, who will be playing in his second Super Bowl, would love nothing more than to leave New Orleans as a champion this time. Boldin is well-known and respected for his sheer toughness and willpower, as evidenced by a vicious the former Arizona Cardinal he famously recovered toward the end of a 2008 road game against the New York Jets. He suffered a concussion and had to undergo emergency facial surgery, but amazingly missed just two games as a result of the potentially careerthreatening experience. And he came tantalizing close to winning a Super Bowl for the Cardinals, who suffered a 2723 to the Pittsburgh Steelers on a tip-toe touchdown catch with less than a minute left in the fourth quarter from Super Bowl XLIII MVP and Glades Central alum Santonio Holmes. Boldin, who caught 65 passes for 921 yards and 4 touchdowns in his third season with the Ravens, talked about that Super Bowl loss during Tuesday’s Super Bowl Media Day at the Superdome. “It’s rare that you get this opportunity,” Boldin said. “There are a lot of guys that have been in the league for a long time and never get a chance to play in the Super Bowl. So when you get here, you want to make the most of it. I felt like I let an opportunity slip away ve years ago. From that day on, it’s haunted me. Everything that I’ve done since then has been geared toward getting back to this point and making right on it.” Boldin’s younger cousin, Hikeem Banks, recalls a moment two weeks ago in which he proclaimed that the Ravens were going to beat the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. Boldin went on to haul in two crucial secondhalf touchdown catches that helped the Ravens score a 28-13 victory over the Patriots. “For me personally, being a man of faith, I thank him for taking a stand,” Banks said. “It made me feel proud for him to step up like that. There were a lot of people doubting Anquan when he made that statement, but I always believed what he said.” Banks, who will be heading to New Orleans today with his family for the Super Bowl, said the Ravens are a team of destiny right now. “The odds were against the Ravens in each of their playoff games, but they found a way to overcome it all,” Banks said. “The team got behind Anquan and they made it happen. Who thought the Ravens were going to beat Peyton Manning and the Broncos in the playoffs? Who thought they were going to beat Tom Brady and the Patriots? Nobody outside the Ravens organization believed it was going to happen.” Regardless of how Super Bowl XLVII turns out, one thing will certainly happen come Sunday night. “There will be a muck stepper who wins the Super Bowl this time,” McDonald Sr. said. “When you have a connection with these guys, it’s always a great thing. We came from a rough neighborhood, but through hard work and determination, we can overcome and achieve anything we set out to do.” SPORTSContinued  1 PHOTO / BRIDGETT COATESA Super Bowl XLVII billboard of Baltimore Ravens wide receiver and Pahokee alum Anquan Boldin can be viewed outside the Superdome in New Orleans.

House testimony shows signi cant progress in water quality as a result of farmers’ commitment to Everglades restoration Yesterday before a joint meeting of the Florida House of Representatives’ State Affairs Committee and Agriculture & Natural Resources Subcommittee, Florida’s sugar farmers proudly laid out the successful results of their collaboration with state and federal agencies to restore the Everglades ecosystem. “Florida’s sugar farmers are part of a solution that is working,” said Brian Hughes a spokesman for the Florida’s sugar farmers. “As was demonstrated in the expert testimony of Phil Parsons, sugar farmers are proud of the success and committed to working with the Legislature to get the job done.” Parsons’ testimony shows successful public works projects, jointly paid for by farmers and the South Florida Water Management District, have removed signi cant amounts of phosphorus from the ecosystem. On farm Best Management Practices (BMPs) paid for 100 percent by farmers have removed more than twice as much phosphorus as the public works projects-resulting in clean water for the Everglades.
