Sunny day sees thousands ock to Belle Glade for annual eventBY AMANDA RAMOSGUY Special to e SunThe day started out with one big question, “Is Black Gold going to be rained out?” The clouds were de nitely -raindrops began to fall towards the tail end of the parade, but much to the relief of everyone it was only a few drops. Children were excited to see horses from the local horse club. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce (PBSO) SWAT truck was also a hit with the adults and kids. When the car club drove past, men excitedly called off the make and models of each car that passed by, with some even calling out the year the car was made. Then the sun came out and the day turned into any other South Florida day: hot and sunny, with a certainty of sunburn. People could be found in various shade trees escaping the sun’s rays and the entertainment tent saw plenty of folks. While resting in the tent, event goers were entertained by local talents like Julie Temple, The Celebration Singers, and members from various local churches. The children’s play area, courtesy of Florida Power and Light, was hopping with kids. A rock climbing wall, mechanical bull, and train ride around the marina were some of the activities that kept the kiddies entertained hours.

Some projects are in the beginning phases of brainstorming and discussion while others are nearing completion. Kimley-Horn & Associates, Inc. submitted plans for the Belle Glade Municipal Airport. The proposed plans gave the city commission various layouts for airport renovation. City of cials have yet to choose the layout they feel is the best alternative. Local crop dusters agreed that the airport needed to be renovated but expressed concerns that the proposed layouts submitted would increase the cost of their fuel. “Most of the airport tenants maintain their own fuel farms, purchasing fuel at wholesale prices, with a combined capacity of 40,000 gallons,” said Jamie Busby, of Glades KEC/Canal Point recipient of many grants for continuation of music programBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunAlain Goindoo, better known to students and faculty as Mr. G, teaches by way of tough love. It’s discipline and control that best directs children on their path to learning. A discussion with him underscores the obvious: that his kids mean the world to him, even if his teaching methods differ from most other teachers’ lesson plans. “I do not spoon-feed my kids,” he said recently in an interview with The Sun. “My kids have con dence that otherwise would have been beat out of them academically. And now? They’re shining.” Mr. G is a music teacher, with one of the few elementary band and strings program in the county.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades Audubon Brown Thrasher’s breeding range stretches east of the Rocky Mountains, north into southern Canada, and south to eastern Texas and South Florida. They are the only Thrasher species normally found east of Texas. They winter in the Southeastern United States where they arrive in mid-September and depart in April. The oldest recorded Brown Thrasher lived to be 11 years and 11 months old. These fairly large and slender songbirds are larger than Northern Mockingbirds and Gray Catbirds. They have long sturdy legs and a long slightly down-curved bill. Their long tail is often cocked upward, like a wren’s tail. Brown Thrashers are brown with heavy, dark streaking, whitish underparts, gray-brown face, and wings with two black-and-white wingbars. Brown Thrashers are mimics who have one of the largest repertoires of any North American songbird, and have been reported singing more than 1,100 different song types. Males often choose a high perch where it will sing a long, loud series of doubled phrases with no de nite beginning or end which they will sing only twice before moving on to the next song. They imitate other bird species including Northern Flicker, Tufted Titmouse, and Northern Cardinal. The Brown Thrasher is found in woodlands, dry thickets, pastures, fencerows, and garden shrubbery. It spends most of its time walking, running, or hopping on the ground. They use their long bills to sweep through leaf litter in order to uncover insects and other invertebrates. They also eat berries, acorns and small amphibians. The male and female both help select a nest site with is usually on a low tree branch or thorny shrub. The large bulky nest is built of twigs, bark, and grasses. They defend their territory and are aggressive toward intruding Brown Thrashers and other nest predators. In Florida the females usually lay a clutch of three eggs, which are incubated for 12 to 14 days with the young leaving the nest when they are nine to 13 days old. Volunteers are needed to help document nesting Brown Thrashers between April 1st and July 31st for the Breeding Bird Atlas II surveys in Hendry and Glades County. Join birders during the summer to help document breeding birds or report breeding birds you observe at your home or other locations. Go to the Hendry-Glades Audubon website for information about the Stormwater Treatment Area 5 (STA5) driving trips. There are openings for the April 27 trip and the monthly trips scheduled May through October. Reservations are required.

"Water Conservation Month is an annual reminder that everyone has a role in protecting South Florida's water resources," said SFWMD Governing Board Chair Dan O'Keefe. "Reducing water use, not just in April but every month of the year, is essential to ensure a long-term, sustainable water supply." Water Conservation Month is recognized each April, which is historically the height of the dry season, due to minimal rainfall and peak demand. At this time of year, limited rainfall, an increase in temperature, and higher evapotranspiration rates result in a seasonal decline in regional water supplies across the District's 16 counties. Simple water conservation practices can include: Replacing aerators in kitchen and bathroom sinks with models rated for 1.5 gallons per minute or less Watering the lawn based on its actual needs Installing low- ow appliances, such as a dishwasher or energy-ef cient washing machine Installing low- ow water xtures, such as showerheads with the WaterSense logo Throughout April, the District is participating in many community events and activities in an effort to encourage South Florida residents and visitors to conserve water. Water conservation is a year-round ethic issue. While the district is not currently in a water shortage or drought, rainfall since November 1 has been about half of average. The district is closely monitoring regional water supplies during the remainder of the dry season, which typically lasts until late May. When water shortage orders are not in place, the district follows yearround water conservation measures that target outdoor irrigation, which accounts for up to half of the water used per person per day in South Florida. The year-round landscape irrigation rule is just one of many initiatives implemented under the district's Comprehensive Water Conservation Program. SFWMD Board Recognizes Water Conservation Month What do you do with your unused prescription pills and over-the-counter medications? Do you throw them away? Flush them down the toilet? Simply leave them in your cabinet for a rainy day? Doing any of the above can provoke tragic consequences including enabling the drugs to get into the wrong hands or nd their way into drinking water and irrigation supplies. That's why it's crucial to safely dispose of unused prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs, veterinary medications and nutritional supplements. According to the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, one-quarter of rst-time illegal drug users 12 years and older began by using prescription drugs non-medically. Prescription drugs are abused far more frequently than illicit drugs for one simple reason: they can be found in almost every home, free for the taking. What's more, drug overdose deaths, mostly related to addictive painkillers, rose for the 11th straight year in 2010, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And while it sounds quick and easy to ush pills down the toilet or throw them in the wastebasket, this method can be harmful to the environment and to people's health. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, nearly 80 percent of recently tested rivers contained traces of pharmaceuticals, including antibiotics, steroids, hormones and contraceptives. So how can the average person go from being part of the problem to being part of the solution? Begin by examining every prescription you bring into your home. Ask your doctor to ensure he or she is prescribing in the amount you will use. Consider locking your medicine cabinet or moving prescriptions to a secure location, safe from the unwelcome explorations of children or intruders. Remove any leftover drugs from your home promptly and dispose of them in a way that has as little environmental impact as possible. "Drug take-back programs are a great way to get rid of unused medications," says John Waffenschmidt, Vice President of Community Affairs and Environmental Science at Covanta Energy, the largest owner and operator of "Energy-from-Waste" facilities in North America. Covanta works with organizations to provide safe disposal of medications collected by drug takeback programs. The company does so free of charge, safely disposing of drugs at its facilities. Since its inception in 2010, Covanta's Rx4Safety program is responsible for having destroyed more than 600,000 pounds of unwanted medications nationwide. Partnerships like these have resulted in the proliferation of successful drug take-back programs that allow prescription drugs to be dropped off at secure locations, such as police stations or at special events held throughout the year, for transport to facilities where they can be destroyed safely. If you think you may have unwanted prescription pills in your cabinet, take the time to collect them for the Drug Enforcement Agency's National Drug Take-Back Day on April 27. Disposing of Unused Prescription Drugs Properly

Generally if you nd a baby animal it is best to leave it alone. Often the animal is not orphaned, and the parent may be out getting food for the animal, or watching the baby, advises The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Never pick up baby animals and remove them from their natural environment! To report an injured or orphaned wild animal, contact any of the FWC's ve regional of ces for a list of wildlife rehabilitators. After giving birth, adult wildlife must forage to provide food for themselves and their young. That requires the adult animals to leave their newborns for short periods. The little one may look like it's been abandoned, but that seldom is the case. Common targets of unnecessary rescues are baby deer, temporarily left in a safe place while their mothers feed nearby. According to the FWC, what typically happens is someone discovers a young deer waiting for its mother. Often, people stumble onto fawns in palmetto patches or in recently burned areas, where a doe has placed her new offspring for protection. These settings tend to help mask the fawn's scent, thus providing good protection from the keen nose of a predator. People discover these seemingly abandoned baby deer and become concerned when the parent is nowhere in sight. The would-be rescuers falsely believe the young animal will perish unless they save it or take it to a wildlife rehabilitation center. Another way to help with the survival of the young animals is to not feed them. Although that may sound odd, feeding can cause problems ranging from poor nutrition to making the animal dependent on humans for food to loss of foraging skills all of which can decrease the animals chances of survival. The FWC recommends that if you nd a fawn or other baby animal, don't touch it, and quietly leave the area. Touching the animal may cause the mother to reject it because it is contaminated with human scent. On the other hand, songbirds have almost no sense of smell and can be returned to their nest without much chance of rejection. Young songbirds are commonly found on the ground at this time of year, looking a bit dazed or confused. The youngster may be trying to hide in tall grass or in low bushes to avoid being seen by predators. These young birds are going through a process called edging. When they're ready to edge, young birds have grown all the adult feathers they'll need to y, but they still must learn to y. During this process, the immature birds sometimes end up on the ground, where they may spend several days before they learn all their ight skills. According to biologists, the only time a baby songbird should be rescued is when it is on the ground and has almost no feathers, when the bird is injured by pets or its tail is less than a halfinch long and it cannot hop around on its own. If you nd a baby songbird you are sure needs rescuing, place the baby bird in a tissue-lined box that has air holes in the top. Keep the box in a warm spot away from drafts and air conditioning and out of direct sunlight. Do not give it food or water. Call a licensed wildlife rehabilitator in your area. The FWC's regional of ces have lists of local rehabbers. Many local veterinarians also work closely with wildlife rehabilitators and also can be a good source of advice. Another suggestion is to place the bird in a lined box and attach the box to the tree from where the bird fell. Sometimes the parents will come to the baby in the new box and feed it there. This gives the birds a chance to be raised properly by their parents. The FWC asks you to remember that removing an animal from the wild to save it may actually have the opposite effect. Seek advice from wildlife professionals before attempting to rescue any animal, and remember: in most cases, it is better to leave wildlife wild. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Partners in the Way to Happiness Foundation and a Drug Free World.

Main Street LaBelle, FL 33935 863-675-0761 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 18, 2013 BY KATRINA ELSKENThe rst technical meeting for the Lake Okeechobee Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP) was held Tuesday at the South Florida Water Management District Service Center in Okeechobee, and the meeting room was packed with representatives of local governments and governmental agencies, agricultural industries and environmental interests. The BMAP is a restoration plan, a roadmap for water quality improvements, which will include wastewater limits, urban BMPs, agricultural BMPs and conservation programs. Beth Alvi, with the Watershed Planning and Coordination Section, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, opened the meeting with an overview of some of the terms used to describe the process. Watershed: The largest area under consideration, the watershed under study spans from Orange County to the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA). The Lake Okeechobee Watershed drainage area spans over 3.5 million acres. Sub-Watersheds: The watershed that includes Lake Okeechobee has been divided into nine sub-watersheds. Six are north of the lake, one is to the east, one to the west and one to the south. These may be named for a geographical area such as Indian Prairie or Taylor Creek and Nubbin Slough. Basin: Each sub-watershed is divided into basins. The basins are usually referred to by designation numbers. STA: Storm water Treatment Areas or STAs are constructed wetlands designed to lter nutrients out of the water. HWTT: Hybrid Wetlands Treatment Technology uses a treatment agent to help the wetlands remove nutrients from the water. Ms. Alvi explained that priority basins were identi ed during the rst phase of the restoration project. She said they are using the data collected to look at changes in water quality. The goal is to reduce the amount of excess nutrientsprimarily phosphorusentering Lake Okeechobee. The land use in the area is 51.2 percent agriculture; 35.7 natural areas; and, 11.9 percent urban, according to the FDEP. Frank Nearhoof, also of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, said they will take into consideration the hydrology, land use and other factors such as soil type, when evaluating how much phosphorus is entering Lake Okeechobee. "Our problem is the load to the lake," he said, using charts to illustrate the fact that "the ow drives the load." He said 90 percent of the water owing into Lake Okeechobee comes in during a very short period of time. Most of the time there is very little ow into the lake, he said but 10 percent of the time there are rapid ows. That 10 percent of the time is also responsible for 60-70 percent of the total phosphorus going into Lake Okeechobee. This is the key to restoring the lake, Mr. Nearhoof said. "If we can't detain this ow, we are doomed to failure," he said. He said they have data going back to 1973 for most of the water control structures. Changes in land use, such as the removal of some dairies, implementation of Best Management Practices (BMPs) and installation of STAs have reduced the phosphorus load in some areas, he said. In other areas, it is harder to determine the effect of a particular action, he said. The phosphorus levels may also be affected by something happening upstream. The changing Florida weather makes it harder for scientists to determine the results of their attempts to reduce phosphorus in the lake. "This is Florida," he mused. "If you don't like the weather just wait a little bit and it will change." He said the development of plans for water detention will depend on both the hydrological characteristics of the basins and the land uses. The next BMAP meeting is planned for May. Ms. Alvi said they will try to move the meetings around to make it more fair to all who have to travel. They plan to schedule the next meeting in Sebring. They will also plan a telephone meeting for those interested in the more technical aspects of the studies. ‘Controlling Peak Flows is Key to Restoring Lake,’ Says FDEP Of cialWild Baby Animals Should Be Left Alone

SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchThere are always people around who like to tell God what to do. Usually it is a matter of convenience and preference; serious prayers are requests to God to intervene. I have told people that I don’t ask God to bless lottery tickets (yes, I have been asked), don’t ask God to bless “pretend weddings” (yes, I have been asked), and don’t ask God to bless one sports team over another (yes, that too). We bless the name of the Lord when we invoke His presence as we break bread, when we thank God for His presence when a miracle occurs, when we bless Him for His presence in our lives; when we act in His name and in accordance with His will. Those who are truly in need of God’s action in their lives say something like “Hey, you, up there, I could use a little (lots!) of help down here, Amen.” Note: this is not telling God what to do because that simply isn’t our place no matter how much it would be convenient or how much we’d like to impose our will on others. Then, as I read, there was an obvious exception. It was about my namesake – Thomas. Following the Lord’s appearance to His disciples after being cruci ed and risen, He appears to them in an upper room as they gathered to worship (John 20:19ff). They were afraid, and rightly so, but they believed enough to gather in spite of the recent death of their Lord and likelihood that they too could be next. Jesus appeared among them, but Thomas wasn’t with them (v.24). He insists “Unless I see the nail marks in His hands and put my nger where the nails were, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe it (!) (v.25)” Thomas feels it is his place to tell the Lord what the terms of his faith will be. This is something I don’t recommend; since when can, or should, we dictate to God? Nevertheless, and this is the surprising part, he gets away with it. Thomas is there the following week, Jesus appears once more and tells him “Put your nger here, see my hands, reach out your hand and put it in my side. Stop doubting and believe (v.27).” This is most unusual; Thomas sets the terms and the Lord accommodates him. What then can we take from this apparent exception? My re ections are that the Lord had a place for Thomas in His plans for the Church that He was to establish here on earth and that Thomas played a key part. It was signi cant enough that Thomas be kept among the disciples despite his insisting on “proof.” Jesus acceded and overcomes Thomas’ lesser moment; Thomas vehemently af rms “My Lord and my God (v.28).” Jesus follows “Because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed are those who have not seen me yet have believed (v.29).” Thomas receives proof, but not the blessing of those who go on faith. That’s the blessing that comes for those who will do something more dif cult, more trusting, and more faithful. That’s the blessing that comes to those who sincerely pray in their moments of need or difculty; fear or loss. That blessing apparently isn’t there for those who want to tell God what to do. How we approach the Lord makes all the difference, and what we can expect is that God is doing His part even if we don’t see it or understand. Whoever said that God isn’t doing more things than we can desire or pray for anyway? Religion Column Samuel S. Thomas SUBMITTED PHOTOPartners for Kids The Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties had a very unique way to participate in Florida’s 2013 Children’s Week. The Healthy Families Program and the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle partnered together to have a special quilt made to represent ‘Partners for Kids.’This quilt has actual handprints from children in our communities to remind parents the importance of starting healthy habits for their children at a young age so they can have a healthier future. Along with the quilt, posters of additional handprints were sent to Tallahassee to be hung in the Capitol’s Rotunda during Children’s Week events. The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle’s Young Children Priority One Committee and Healthy Families share a common goal of advocating for the well being and healthy development of children in our communities.

According to environmental clean-up reports, cigarette butts are the number one littered item on U.S. roadways and the number one item found on beaches and waterways worldwide. A new survey conducted by Legacy shows that while more than 88 percent of Americans surveyed think that cigarette butts are an environmental concern, more than 44 percent of those polled who had ever smoked admit to having dropped a cigarette on the ground and nearly 32 percent have dropped a cigarette out of a car window. Toxic tobacco trash includes a plastic lter, which biodegrades only under extreme conditions, putting wildlife in danger and wreaking costly havoc on U.S. waterways, parks, beaches, and roadways. Additionally, cigarette butts contain carcinogens that can leach into soil, and chemicals that are poisonous to wildlife, threatening to contaminate water sources. This month in advance of Earth Day, Legacy has partnered with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics' (Leave No Trace) to raise awareness and mobilize actions surrounding this toxic problem with a new set of television and radio Public Service Announcements (PSAs) available in English and Spanish, urging the public to Rethink Butts' and take a new perspective on this environmental issue. Over the past 30 days, Americans surveyed reported seeing this form of toxic litter on sidewalks (80.1 percent), in parks (32.1 percent), on playgrounds (16.6 percent), and on beaches (15.7 percent). While more than 93 percent of those surveyed agree that dropping a cigarette butt on the ground is a form of littering, it is alarming that so many smokers still litter them. "Social norms surrounding litter have shifted dramatically over the last several decades," said Dr. Cheryl Healton, DrPH, President and CEO of Legacy, a public health non-pro t based in Washington, D.C. "But despite the fact that so many Americans are hyper-concerned about the environment and are eager to recycle household items and pick up litter, there remains a total disconnect when it comes to icking cigarette butts onto our streets and into our waterways. Through our new partnership with Leave No Trace we hope to not only begin to change the behavior of littering cigarette butts, but also highlight the fact that billions of cigarette butts annually amount to an enormous environmental and public health threat that our communities are left to pay for." "Cigarette butts have a serious impact in the outdoors we create and our children explore," stated Dana Watts, Executive Director of the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. "Through this important partnership with Legacy, we hope to provide tangible and relevant public education about the issue, fostering healthier people, lands, and waterways." In an increasingly health and environmentally conscious world, cigarette butts remain one of the only socially acceptable forms of littering left. This new set of bilingual PSAs are available online for download and distribution. Join more than a billion people in 180 countries around the world this Earth Day, and commit to promoting environmental action this year, by stopping toxic litter and starting the discussion about this global problem. Download the PSAs and read more at RethinkButts.org. Cigarette Butts are Toxic Waste Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 5.6 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.50/g on Sunday. according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has fallen 5.0 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.52/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 41.7 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 21.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 13.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 37.0 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. "The national average continues to be driven down as oil prices have fallen in recent weeks," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "The year on year savings is approaching 40 cents a gallon in some spotsnot necessarily hitting the lottery, but every cent counts. As we get closer to Memorial Day there's also the chance of an increase in pricing volatility thanks to re nery maintenance season that will be gradually coming to a close."

The 55 kids in the music program share 42 violins, six cellos and two upright basses. The results of his methods have been impressive. Mr. G's students cover grades three to ve, and it is not out of the ordinary to see the fth grade students actually carrying out instruction themselves. Under the supervision of their teacher, fth graders work alongside third graders, showing them what they have learned themselves. It's an interesting thing to watch, Mr. G said, and it instills a responsibility in those fth grader mentors that helps them to take their own work more seriously. In his seventh year overseeing the music program, the teacher said he loves his job. "I don't think teaching is dif cult at all, if you have the freedom to teach your way," he said, explaining that, for the most part, he does not have to teach to FCAT standards, and has the ability to identify his own goals for the kids at the start of each school year. Mr. G nds himself as an unwitting grant writer sometimes, reaching out to established programs that fund efforts such as his. In 2013 alone, his program received $65,000 in grants and funding that helped send kids to a special band camp and saw the purchase of essential instruments. Not bad, especially after the program won $90,000 in grants the year before. "All I do is show people how much I love the kids. I ask them, can you help us complete our goals?' and they say yes," Mr. G explained. Among these have been grants from the Nat King Cole Foundation, the Pew Foundation, Lynn University, VH1 Save the Music, and Mr. Holland's Opus. One of the key components of the grant funding is the band camp that kids have had the opportunity to attend at Florida Atlantic University. There, the elementary school kids work with college professors and students. "The kids show up never having touched an instrument and in just ve days they're playing in an ensemble concert," said Mr. G. Along the way, the teacher has seen quite a few stars come through the program, including a girl with absolute pitch, "I never believed someone could have perfect pitch!" exclaimed the teacher, to a student who last year went on to be accepted at Bak Middle School of the Arts, one of the top arts schools in the county. A few of his third graders didn't seem to mind talking about their teacher. Antanique said Mr. G is "cool. He lets us do fun stuff and play on the clarinet, ute and trombone." Another called him his favorite teacher, while a few of his peers picked on him for saying it. Mr. G said his message to the parents of his children is simple: "We're here to serve and we're providing your kids with the best quality music instruction in the county."

The business owners, like Bart Perryman of Belle Glade Ag Aviation, are concerned that fuel costs would increase by approximately $300,000 to $400,000 a year, should the city establish a Fixed Base Operator (FBO) and the possibility of forcing them to purchase their fuel from a thirdparty at retail prices. They would also like to see a North/South runway installed to help alleviate the strong crosswinds they experience. City of cials assured the current tenants that they would not be forced to purchase fuel from a third-party. The city cannot move forward with the airport's renovation until funding has been secured. They said, "We need to identify grant funding that would pay for such improvements, which we have not secured at this point." Many of Belle Glade's roads are in disrepair. Some neighborhoods have large potholes while others have bumps that look like small hills. Commissioner Mike Martin and Vice-mayor Mary Wilkerson recently took a trip to Tallahassee to meet with state of cials and request $12M of state or federal funds for road repairs to rectify these issues. Belle Glade had to compete with other Palm Beach County cities for the state's attention on matters important to their respective cities. Commissioner Martin said, "This is the most important trip that a city of cial can take to request funds that the city desperately needs." City sources say, "At this point, we have heard of possibilities' but have no concrete guarantee or promise of funding. All we can do is keep pressing forward and hope that by the end of the session we will have good news. At this time, there is no list of which roads need to be repaired rst but once funding is secured the city plans to "select streets to repair in order of the greatest need." According to Commissioner Larry Underwood, the city is waiting for the area of the Loading Ramp to be rezoned and classi ed as a park. Plans for the Loading Ramp have been evolving. The city is collaborating with PBSO to bring the ideas to fruition and stiffen penalties for those who buy, sell, or use drugs in this area. The city has provided PBSO with a sketch of what it considers a good plan for turning the Loading Ramp into an Adult Community Park with a memoriam to Veterans. They are now waiting on a response from the sheriff's of ce before moving forward with the project. According to city of cials, if and when the idea for the park materializes, additional signage will be installed advising of ordinances in effect and park rules which PBSO will enforce. "Proposed plans to renovate the Loading Ramp into a Community Adult Park would greatly enhance the appearance of the community," said Commissioner Johnny Burroughs. A green market was once discussed for that area, but that plan has now been abandoned and discussions are being held about locating the green market elsewhere in the city. The city is currently working on a large demolition project. There are approximately 30 buildings that have been condemned and are ready to be demolished. Five buildings have already been removed. "The citizens have been concerned about these properties for quite some time. It's great to see that we are nally able to remove these buildings for them," said Mayor Steve Wilson. City sources say they are working with Senator Abruzzo on securing funding to install a guardrail on East Canal Street North, the road in front of Walgreens. The Lake Shore Civic Center is another project the city has been working on for quite some times. The building has been completely renovated and has a new air conditioner, roof, pool house, and sidewalks leading to the pool and bathrooms are ADA compliant. There is new fencing, ooring, and internal and external paint. According to sources, the city has made not made a decision as to how the old library building will be used. They said, "The only thing that has been discussed is expanding the museum into more of the building and those talks are currently continuing." Finally, a project that is in the very early stages, the city would like to send lobbyist to Tallahassee. Their purpose is acquiring state owned property like the Glades Correctional Institution. The plan is to annex the 814 acre tract into the city and use it for new businesses. A city source says, "We badly need to have land available for new industry to locate here, and we are actively pursuing acquisition of that land." PROJECTSContinued  1

Some of the child care centers participated in the event, included Wee Care, Little Hands Learning Center, Palm Beach County Head Start, RCMA, the Fortin Family Development Center, and LSF PEPPI Head Start. To initiate the start of the picnic, city representatives from three cities Belle Glade, Pahokee, South Bay read proclamations to honor Children’s Week. By sponsoring this event, Western Palm Beach County residents, businesses, and nonpro t agencies joined other people throughout the state of Florida advocating for the needs of young children. Palm Beach County was well represented at the picnic by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Ofce and the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Department, which provided sheriff trucks and re trucks for the children to inspect. The re rescue employees and sheriff deputies gave away prizes to students and emphasized safety awareness. “Sparky the Fire Dog” also made an appearance and posed with students for pictures. The Palm Beach County Health Department handed out pedometers so that the participants could count the number of steps walked during the event. A petting zoo composed of rabbits, ducks, roosters, a cow, and other farm animals was provided courtesy of Cock-A-Doodle-Doo traveling zoo. This event was the culmination of the hard work of the 2013 Children’s Week Planning Committee. Members of this committee included staff from the City of South Bay, PEPPI Head Start, Noah Development, Little Hands Child Care Center, and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Department. Other community agencies such as Bridges and Family Central sponsored events as well. Mr. Funderbirk, supervisor of the Boys and Girls Club, prepared hot meals for all of the adults that attended the event, which consisted of a grilled hamburger, corn on the cob, a bag of chips, and a beverage.

Fish Busters’ BulletinBY BOB WATTENDORF FWCApril showers bring May owers, but in Florida there is already an abundance of blooms and a bonanza of freshwater shing opportunities that began earlier this spring. All across the state, anglers have reported great catches of a variety of freshwater shes. Anglers especially target sun shes moving into the shallows to spawn in spring. Black crappie (specks), redbreast sun sh and largemouth bass begin spawning when water temperatures get over 62 degrees. Crappie will stop spawning before bass, which continue to work the beds until it warms up to about 75 degrees. They are followed by redear sun sh (70to 80-degree waters) and bluegill (7585). Research and angler lore indicate these sh key their peak activity to a few days before and after full and new moons during spring. April is a favorite time of year for freshwater anglers, not only because sh congregating in the shallows provide great catch rates with lots of quality-size sh, but also because temperatures tend to be comfortable for an outdoor expedition. Another reason is that the rst Saturday in April each year (April 6, this year) is a license-free freshwater shing day across the state. People are exempt from needing a license that day, so it is a great opportunity to reach out to people who don't have a freshwater shing license and show them how much fun a day on the water can be. Or, perhaps you have children who have been bugging you to go, and you haven't wanted to buy a license to accompany them. Now is your chance. In Florida, nearly everyone is within 45 minutes of a shing hole. For help nding a location or shing tips and seasonal shing forecasts, check out MyFWC.com/Fishing (under "Freshwater Fishing," choose "Sites & Forecasts"). Quarterly forecasts by biologists are supplemented with links to local bait-and-tackle shops, marinas or guides for even more timely updates. Florida's Big Catch Angler Recognition Program provides an opportunity for anglers to commemorate impressive freshwater catches with a certi cate and having their photo posted online. Thirty-three different species are included in the program, and all it takes to participate is a photo of a sh that exceeds either a speci ed length or weight. It's a great incentive for youth, who can qualify by catching sh that are roughly 25 percent smaller than qualifying measures for adult anglers. Visit MyFWC.com/BigCatch for more details and to enroll. However, the ultimate challenge is the race for the biggest trophy bass of the year. Florida's fame as a bass- shing destination lies in an abundance of lakes and rivers that consistently produce trophy-size bass. To document locations and frequency of bass catches over 8 pounds, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) launched TrophyCatch (TrophyCatchFlorida. com) in October with support from industry partners. The goal is to enhance and sustain trophy bass sheries and to promote Florida as the Bass Fishing Capital of the World, based on documented catches. To participate, catches must be veri ed by the FWC for the angler to earn awards. For Lunker Club (8 to 9.9 pounds) and Trophy Club (10 to 12.9 pounds), veri cation requires photos of the entire bass showing its length and weight, and then the bass must be released. Photos are submitted via the website. For Hall of Fame bass, which earn for the angler a free replica valued at $500 and an additional $500 in other prizes, the sh must be caught before the end of April and weighed on certi ed scales by an FWC representative. If you catch one, keep it alive and call 855FL-TROPHY. From May through September, bass over 13 pounds can still be photo-documented as Trophy Club bass, but they won't be entered into the Hall of Fame, to prevent undue stress from warmer waters. The biggest bass of this season (ending Sept. 30) veri ed by TrophyCatch will earn a $3,000 championship ring provided by the American Outdoor Fund. The biggest bass caught in Osceola County and veri ed by TrophyCatch will take home $10,000, courtesy of Explore Kissimmee. If a registered guide helped, the guide earns a $2,500 bonus (see website for details). So register now, check out the rules, grab a rod-reel, camera, scale and tape measure, and go catch yourself a lunker, document it and then release it. By the way, just registering gets you into a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat powered by Mercury. The biggest sh of the year currently is a 13pound, 14-ounce monster caught by Bob Williams, while shing wild shiners on Rodman Reservoir, with guide Sean Rush (Trophy Bass Expeditions). Check out YouTube.com/TrophyCatchFlorida to see a video of the current leaderboard, including Williams' catch. Now it's your turn! Enjoy the great freshwater shing Florida has for you this spring. Make memories and celebrate them through Florida's angler recognition programs at TrophyCatchFlorida.com, and if you release a lunker bass, you'll be able to say "My Trophy Swims in Florida!"

There was a variety of booths ranging from homemade soaps to handmade jewelry. For those who forgot to get their hair cut before Black Gold, it was no problem at all. Haircuts were also available. Leaving hungry was nearly impossible with all the vendors and local cooks there. For those who didn’t like Cajun food, there was plenty of barbeque and other food choices. Ice cream and shaved ice was in abundance to keep customers cool. The evening closed out with energetic performances on the amphitheater stage from Amber Leigh, Blackjack Billy, and Chris Janson. The grand nale consisted of an excellent rework show compliments of Florida Crystals. “Jubilee ‘13 was a great event. They were predicting a 60% chance of rain, but it didn’t rain on our parade; it didn’t rain out the events all day; and it didn’t stop the nale reworks,” said Belle Glade Chamber Executive Director Brenda Bunting. “We have received so many compliments, especially through our Black Gold Facebook page. We were also very pleased with the support from the communities for the Chamber’s Green Market. We didn’t know what to expect. We are very grateful to all the local farmers who donated their produce,” said Mrs. Bunting. An estimated 4,000 to 5,000 people came out to the lake for festival events throughout the day. Commissioner Mike Martin said, “I think this is the best turnout we have had in years. Kudos to the Black Gold planning committee for an outstanding job everything was fantastic from the entertainment to the reworks.” BLACK GOLDContinued  1 PHOTO / AMANDA RAMOS GUYBelle Glade City Commissioners and Mayor Steve Wilson greeted residents during the Black Gold Jubilee Parade last week.

BY ALONZO VEREENWhen one enters Belle Glade, Florida alert and aware, one will take notice of its creed: Her Soil is Her Fortune. There are individuals who read this creed and argue that the citizens’ reliance upon it, at base, perpetuates low academic performance in Belle Glade’s public schools. In fact, this very argument may have been what pushed Belle Glade’s city of cials to add a comma and catchy phrase to the age-old creed, forever transforming “Her Soil is Her Fortune” into “Her Soil is Her Fortune, Knowledge is Our Future.” Yet, despite what most people would have us believe, Belle Glade’s current educational state has nothing to do with her soil. Students in Belle Glade’s public schools are performing low on statewide academic assessments because of what Belle Glade’s interlopers and citizens sow – the seeds they and we choose to water and those they and we choose to ignore. One such seed looks like this: the children in Belle Glade cannot rely on their intellect, because they do not have the brains to do so. But Belle Glade’s publicschool students are not born with ineffective cognitive skills. They are not defective citizens of the world. They are people who possess, from birth, just like any other people from any other culture, the capabilities of earning an education that can make them academically competitive on an international level. Still, when seeds are passed around people use them. Take, for instance, Bryan Mealer, author of Muck City: Winning and Losing in Football’s Forgotten Town. In a recent article for the New York Times titled “Football as a Way Out of Poverty,” Mealer does nothing more than cast aspersions on the city’s history and current socio-economic state. Six of his seven curt paragraphs mention something negative about Belle Glade and nothing in the article reminds America of Jonteria Williams, who, if one is to believe in Mealer’s Muck City, is one of Belle Glade’s few miracle children, the exceptional ones who make it out on account of their rare exceptionalness. Whereas many facts Mealer mentions about Belle Glade are indeed facts, it would be unwise for one to forget how dangerous it is to use truth as a vehicle by which to bolster false realities, which is precisely what Mealer does. The nal paragraph of his Op-Ed for the New York Times reads, “Football is salvation itself [in Belle Glade], a eeting window of escape. .,” and it is this erroneous validation which sows the fallacious seed that most children in Belle Glade must rely only on their athleticism, for their intelligence will fail them each and every time. But couldn’t we foresee Mealer’s lack of expectation for academic brilliance in Belle Glade’s many minority students before his Op-Ed article? After all, his Muck City is rife with words and similes that carry racist connotations as sturdily as tractor-trailers carry burnt cane stalks. The rst page of the book describes Jessie Lee Hester’s siblings as a brood, and, when Mealer writes about a football practice during which he witnessed a rather intense display of roiled testosterone by the Black and Caribbean members of Glades Central’s football team, Mealer describes the young teenage boys as pit bulls. But the problem, of course, is not Mealer’s cross of subtle racism and Mealer’s cross alone to bear. It is also the cross of the artist who created the ceramic mural that is now ensconced in concrete just before the entrance of Belle Glade’s new public library, a mural that depicts cabbage, cane, corn, one sugar mill, two football goal posts, and no books. A mural that belies the remodeled creed that encircles it: “Belle Glade / Her Soil is Her Fortune, Knowledge is Our Future.” It is also the cross of the city’s librarians who decided a shelf full of Mealer’s racist, at worse, contentious, at best, Muck City should greet every malleable child and teenager that enters. It is the cross of the citizens and the city’s helpers, too, for it is time we look beyond our cross’s wooden splinters and accept our Golgotha – our subconscious self-hate and racism. If Belle Glade’s city of cials do not believe that children in Belle Glade innately possess the talent, intellect, and wherewithal to govern this world, the children will govern nothing. If teachers who commute into this small, rural community from the boisterously bustling suburbs of Palm Beach County commute with prejudices about the lack of motivation and intellectual acuity of the students in “The Glades,” then students will not display motivation or intellectual acuity. If elementary students’ step, dance, and taekwondo instructors, track and eld, football, and basketball coaches do not tell their young team members how valuable their intelligence is, how much the world needs their innovative and inspiring ideas, how their pens can change everything, then none of these ideas will ever come to fruition. Although we, Belle Glade’s citizenry and helpers, witness how seeds sown at the start of a season always yield something at that season’s end, we adamantly refuse to sow any seeds of intelligence in our young ones. We plant seeds of athleticism; we are very good at that. We plant seeds of materialism; we are very good at that. We plant seeds for the American Dream, and we are experts at that. But we fail, terrible harvest season after terrible harvest season, we fail to plant seeds of intelligence. In the spare rows that our former slaveholders and the progeny of our former slaveholders have relegated to our perpetual maintenance, we plant, instead, low expectations. But the number of seeds scraping against the bottom of that bag – we must ercely believe – is coming to an end.Alonzo Vereen graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Morehouse College in May 2012.
