BY AMANDA RAMOSGUY e SunDespite the mounds of ashes, twisted steel, and damaged cars, local mechanic and business owner Steve Groves is determined to see his dream of a one-stop auto shop become reality. He has always loved working on cars and trucks. “My dad let me work on lawnmowers and bicycles when I was ve years old,” he fondly recalls. “I repaired my rst motor and transmission when I was nine.” Mr. Groves estimates at least half a million dollar loss. “I had some old cars I was working on and had big plans for.

Fewer than 350 people showed up to the polls on Tuesday to cast their votes, appointing Shirley Walker-Turner, and Shanique Scott to the South Bay City Commission. And despite how close the results were, clear winners resulted. According to the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Of ce, Shanique Scott collected the most votes in the race for Seat 4, with 125 votes (38.70 percent), compared to Olivia Anthony-Kerr and John Wilson, who each collected 99 votes (30.65 percent). On Wednesday morning, Ms. Scott was happy with the results. “I feel great, I really do,” she said. “I had some great volunteers and supporters through the entire campaign. I would like to thank all of the citizens of South Bay for electing me to represent them on the commission.” And in the race for Seat 5, Commissioner Shirley Walker-Turner managed BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunA witness, who claims to have seen the fatal shooting of a Belle Glade man on Saturday, says the shooters returned to the scene to watch as deputies arrived to respond. Using the information, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce was able to pinpoint suspects just hours after the murder. Jarvis Williams, 20, and Marvin Moore, 19, the two suspects identied by the witness, are now each facing charges of murder in the rst degree for the death of Willie Lee Lightburn, Jr. Lightburn, a 32-year-old Belle Glade man, was found deceased in the 400 block of Southwest Avenue B in Belle Glade on Saturday, May 11. Further investigation revealed that he had been shot ve times before dying, according to a report released by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce. The big break in the case would come almost immediately: a person called in to say they had witnessed the entire shooting, and knew the suspects who were involved. According to that person, communicating to deputies via telephone just minutes after the incident, Jarvis Williams shot the victim twice at close range before dropping the gun on the ground. With Lightburn still alive and standing on the street clutching at his side, Marvin Moore reportedly picked up the gun and shot Lightburn again, dropping him to the ground. Apparently not satis ed, Moore allegedly shot Lightburn several more times before running away with Williams to Moore’s apartment nearby. Three more people were in Williams and Moore’s group, including a woman, according to the report.

After interviewing the suspects, but unable to get a confession, investigators allowed them to leave. The witness continued to cooperate with investigators. This person met with of cials at the district substation in Belle Glade, and helped to provide photos from Facebook to positively identify the men involved. It was not the rst time the witness had seen them. According to this person, Williams is a relative, while Moore is said to have recently run up to this person with a gun and red several times into the air. The two men are being held at the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce Main Detention Center in West Palm Beach on no bond. MurderContinued From Page 1 Kids participate in Spanish Spelling BeeGove Elementary School’s 38 nest spellers participated in the 11th Annual Spanish Spelling Bee under the direction of Mrs. Aguirre, ESOL Guidance Counselor. After 13 very competitive rounds and the last two keeping the audience on the edge of their seats, Karla Rubio was selected as the champion. Courtney Louis, a non-Spanish native speaker, took second place proving excellent mastery of her second language. In 2003, after Gove Elementary became a Dual Language School, Mrs. Aguirre thought that a Spanish Spelling Bee would enhance the Dual Language Program. Spelling bees offer endless bene ts like improving memory and attention skills, public speaking, critical thinking, increase of language knowledge, handling pressure and much more. Students ranging from 3rd to 6th grade took part in this competition and each of them is a champion in their respective classes. Each participant was awarded a trophy and the two school-wide nalists received rst and second place trophies. The judging panel, formed by individuals from diverse backgrounds with full knowledge of the Spanish language and representing the community and the district, acted as word caller, recorder, bell ringer, word de ner, and sentence user. Trophies, refreshments, and a student reception were provided with the nancial support from the School Advisory Council (SAC), several business partners, and the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).

This compares with the national average, which has increased 6.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.57/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 15.3 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 5.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has increased 5.0 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 15.4 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. "The national average has perked up again in the last seven days across the nation," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Many motorists remain skeptical of the socalled reasons that we blame higher prices on: re nery production and maintenance, tightening supply, and the now completed switch over to EPA mandated cleaner summer gasoline. Tight gasoline supply exists, especially along the West Coast, and other factors are coming into play in some of the bigger metro areas, where more expensive reformulated gasoline has hit pumps," DeHaan said.

THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins Church, ClewistonSunday, May 19 is celebrated by many in the Church as the day of Pentecost. The word is related to “ fty”(“pente”) and is approximately fty days after Easter. It is celebrated as the birthday of the Church; when the Holy Spirit came among those gathered in an upper room and lled with God’s Spirit. With the coming of God’s Spirit, a miracle occurred. People from many backgrounds, cultures, nations and lifestyles, all began to communicate with one another. Some of the Jewish members present asked “Then how is it that each of us hears them in his own native language? (Acts 2:8).” That’s a very, very good question! I talk to people about God’s presence in Church and how His Spirit manifests itself. I compare it to a group of persons who work together or a group of children who are in school together. One day, they decide “Let’s have a party!” It’s the same people, but the party gathering changes the tone, the atmosphere, the “spirit” of the group. So it is “when two or three are gathered together in my name” – the Spirit comes to be there as well. Is this Spirit to overcome the difculties in understanding each other? It could well be. I recall studying German, while spending my summers in France at the Universite de Strassbourg. On the weekends, I’d cross the Rhine River and spend a few days on the German side, seeing what I could gather from my newlylearned language experience. Very little for the most part. I’d go to a movie on Saturday night to see if something might “sink in” and was often surprised about how much I really understood. As I look back, I think my most valuable asset in this experience was my attitude toward understanding what was going on. I intended to try to understand a plot and the characters; a few words here and there, actions among the actors, scenery to give some idea about the story and the time when it was taking place. The pictures on the billboards outside of the theaters gave me some idea, but it was carefully listening, paying attention, watching for what I could discern, or...being in the spirit of what was going on that made the difference. I’ve attended religious services in languages that I did not understand; but participated, worshipped, was part of the fellowship, and ful lled by them. The upper room scenario is not beyond us; God makes it possible for us to transcend even the most dif cult barriers that stand between us and other members of His family. We celebrate the birthday of His Church and God’s presence in our houses of worship. Those places set aside for the gathering of people “with one accord,” stand as witnesses to His presence in this world. Most of all, they are the outward and visible signs of His community on earth: those who gather in His name and share their common union. From that rst gathering in that upper room those centuries ago until now, the Spirit of God is present and empowers His people to overcome all of the obstacles this world might throw at it. We give thanks to God for His presence, His sending the Holy Spirit, His Church as we celebrate her birthday and promise that not even “the gates of Hades will overcome it (Matthew 16:18).” Religion Column COURTESY PHOTO

Obituaries 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 16, 2013 The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) wants to hear from deer enthusiasts and those who have deer farms or hunting preserves about a proposed rule change that would prohibit the importation of live captive deer into Florida from out-of-state sources. The change is being proposed in an effort to reduce the chances of chronic wasting disease (CWD) being introduced into the state. CWD is not known to affect people. The disease, which has been discovered in 22 states, two Canadian provinces and in South Korea, is a contagious neurological disease affecting deer, elk and moose. It is similar to mad cow disease, always fatal, and there is no known cure or vaccine for the animals. The rule-change proposal will go before the Commission at its June 13 meeting in Lakeland, and the FWC encourages all those who have an interest to go to MyFWC.com/Deer and select “Captive Cervids” to read about what is being proposed and offer any comments, questions or concerns they may have. If the proposal is passed at the June meeting, it would go into effect soon after. Proposed Rule Would Affect Importation of Deer Winter is nally over. Trees and owers are blossoming, birds are building nests and critters are being born. This is also the time of year when the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) begins getting calls about “abandoned” animals that folks believe may be in need of rescue. The fact is that rescuing these seemingly abandoned youngsters interferes with the very processes that ensure their survival in the wild. After giving birth, adult wildlife must forage to provide food for themselves and their young. This means leaving their newborns for short periods. Having some basic knowledge of wildlife and the survival skills animals use can help avoid attempting to rescue animals that don’t need rescuing. Common targets of misplaced rescues are baby deer, temporarily left in a safe place while their mother feeds nearby. Many people who nd fawns mistakenly assume they have been abandoned when, in reality, their parents are in the process of ensuring the infants’ survival. “In most cases, it is absolutely not in a fawn’s best interest to rescue it,” said Angeline Scotten, Wildlife Assistance Biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Scotten says what typically happens is someone discovers a young deer waiting for its mother. Often, those fawns are found 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 become concerned when the parent is nowhere in sight and mistakenly believe the young animal will perish unless they save it or take it to a wildlife rehabilitation center. Unfortunately, actions of this kind usually have the opposite effect of a rescue. “Stress created by changing the animal’s diet and surroundings is often fatal. If the rescued fawn manages to survive, its return to the wild is practically impossible because of human imprinting and a lack of survival skills, which it would have learned from its mother, had it remained in the wild,” Scotten said. Feeding wild animals to help them survive is another misconceived notion that can have dire consequences for wildlife. Although this may sound odd, feeding causes problems ranging from poor nutrition, dependence on humans for food and nuisance behaviors that can threaten people, property and pets. “Wildlife has survived for thousands of years without human interference and, frankly, it certainly seems to work out better for the animals that way,” Scotten said. The FWC recommends that if you nd a fawn or other baby animal, don’t touch it or disturb it and quietly leave the area. Juvenile birds are also 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 – learning to y and fend for themselves. “While edging, the birds’ parents will continue to care for it by feeding it and helping it to learn needed survival skills. The best advice is to not interfere in this crucial learning process and to keep pets that may harm the young birds con ned,” Scotten said. 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, and the nest is low enough for you to safely return it, it’s OK to do that. Songbirds have almost no sense of smell, so young birds can be returned to their nest without a chance of rejection,” Scotten said. You can also place the baby bird in a lined, uncovered, shallow box with drainage, and attach the box to the tree from which the bird fell. Sometimes the parents will come to the baby in the new box and feed it there. When you are sure a bird needs rescuing and care, place the baby 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. Please remember that migratory birds are protected and need to be cared for by a licensed facility. The FWC’s Southwest Region Of ce, 863648-3200, has a list of licensed rehabilitators. Many local veterinarians work closely with wildlife rehabilitators and also can be a good source of help. 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. “Remember that in most cases, it’s better to leave wildlife in the wild,” Scotten said.

Pioneer Park’s faculty members stand out in their daily job dutiesPioneer Park ElementaryIan FullerMr. Jan Fuller has been working as our Instructional Technology Support Assistant for three years now. He has a history of developing websites and computer repair, including hardware and software. While he currently helps our students learn through interacting with computer keyboards, he previously taught electric piano keyboards in an aftercare program helping students develop skills in music composition and production. We asked Mr. Fuller to share his favorite aspect of his job. “I like to solve problems,” said Mr. Fuller. “This gives me a chance to use skills gained over the years to solve software and hardware problems.” We then asked him to describe the purpose of his job within the school’s overall vision. Mr. Fuller responded, “Being able to enhance the education of students by making sure software is available to students via computers at this particular site.” We asked what the most challenging part of his job is. “Being able to balance it all,” resonded Mr. Fuller. “It is demanding and can be frustrating and time consuming, but to see the end result, students engaged and learning, makes it all worth it!” Before he could relay an inspiring message to students, Mr. Fuller was urgently radioed to trouble shoot technology elsewhere. Mr. Fuller is currently enrolled in classes with Phoenix University. He previously led the custodial team of Pioneer Park Elementary and went above the call of duty in that role by assisting in technology and media production needs for various school events over the years. We applaud Principal Miller for choosing Mr. Fuller for this position three years ago out of a large pool of talented candidates. We appreciate all you do for our Sugar Bears, teachers, visitors, administrators and staff Mr. Fuller! Also, thank you for welcoming our invitation to share your technology expertise in the future. Nurse WhiteNurse White has been a school nurse for eight years as of July. Previously she worked for hospitals, in home health care and as a psychiatric nurse. We asked her to share a time when she profoundly impacted a child’s life. “I had a child in the hospital who came in with heart problems,” recalled Nurse White. “They were having a very hard time getting the IV in and the child, a baby, actually, was given a very negative prognosis. They didn’t expect her to make it. They asked me and after I got the IV and meds in, she started turning around. She not only survived, but thrived! The parents were very thankful.” We asked why the school nurse job is important. “It’s important because even in their good health, students still have a tendency to have accidents, which warrant the need for medical care and expertise. This care increases school attendance,” explained Nurse White. “School nurses also help with different screenings, such as hearing and vision. When corrected, this helps students to perform better.” We asked her to give advice to future school nurses. “I would recommend school nursing to anyone interested in going into nursing if they enjoy children and making a difference in kid’s lives. It takes a lot of patience, critical thinking, and nursing skills in order to be successful,” said Nurse White. We told Nurse White, “We know you are tough, because you successfully kept a calm and cool demeanor when your eldest child was kidnapped and own to the islands.” She responded, “Maybe I was as calm as one can possibly [be] in those circumstances!” This calm directly helped police in their successful recovery and return of her oldest daughter. We asked, “Can you tell us a little about that?” She said, “My daughter was four months old. The next door neighbor became obsessed with having a baby and convinced herself Tiffany was hers. That was the most frightening time of my life. “I probably became the most overprotective mom in the universe because of it. It carries over into my nursing too. I was so shocked and amazed and happy to get her back, I wouldn’t put her down, and no one else could even hold her. “She is twenty-one now and has a beautiful baby boy [who] we love very much. I was just reading about the recovered young ladies and couldn’t believe Nancy McBride is still over Missing and Exploited Children. [She] and the police helped us so much and we’ve given back over the years and helped with events to promote this vital cause.” Our modest Nurse White probably won’t volunteer that she is a talented gospel artist, who recorded a gospel CD, and has traveled extensively with her music. Thank you for all you do from your heart for our Sugar Bears Nurse White. Please keep singing and we invite you to share your health tips anytime.

Commissioner Walker-Turner collected 160 votes (51.28 percent), while former South Bay City Clerk Virginia Walker was just eight votes shy of a tie, with 152 votes (48.72 percent). The race was exceptional because of the circumstances that surrounded it. The city of South Bay would not normally be holding an election at this time, except for the fact that Governor Rick Scott’s actions to suspend three commissioners in December created a void in the commission. The suspensions resulted after accusations of Sunshine Law violations by the three commissioners, Linda Johnson, Shirley Walker-Turner, and John Wilson. With the entries of both Walker-Turner and Wilson in the election, the governor’s suspension initially carried some vagueness about whether or not, if elected, the two could serve. The governor’s of ce has recently clari ed this by saying that neither could serve in any of cial capacity, even if elected. The suspension is to remain effective while awaiting the results of any conviction or acquittal of the commissioners who were charged. In the meantime, former Commissioner John Wilson was gracious in accepting the loss to Shanique Scott. “I think Shanique Scott is a young lady who deserves to be on the city commission,” he said. A day after his loss, the former commissioner promised he was not going to stray far from the city. “I will never stop working for the people of South Bay as long as I live,” Mr. Wilson said. “I will continue to work with the commissioners that are in the of ce and do whatever I can for the people of South Bay.” And although he lost the city commission seat, Mr. Wilson’s eyes are set on a bigger prize. “I forgot to tell you what my future plans were: to run for president in 2016. I’m serious.” ElectionContinued From Page 1

It is a widespread breeder in the eastern United States, and southern Canada. The Florida resident breeder nests between May and August. The yellow-billed Cuckoo is a slender, medium-sized bird with white spots along the edges of its long tail. It has a dull brown back, rufous colored wings, and is white underneath. The bill is black above with a yellow lower mandible. There is a yellow ring around its eyes. Juveniles are similar to the adults, but have a paler tail pattern and their bill may show little or no yellow. Its loud call is heard more frequently than the bird is actually seen. It produces at least six vocal sounds, with the most frequent being eight to ten guttural, wooden-sounding syllables, “ka-ka-ka-ka-ka-kow-kow-kowlp-kowlp-kowlp”. Other sounds include a rapid series of notes that resemble a metal door knocker and soft repeated cooing notes. The Yellow-billed Cuckoo prefers to live in forests, cypress swamps, hammocks, and dense thickets, close to water. It will often wait motionless for long periods of time watching for prey to move. Its diet usually consists of large insects, including caterpillars, small frogs, lizards, eggs, and small birds. It will also eat small fruit and seeds. The nest site is usually on a horizontal branch or vertical fork of a tree or large shrub, about three to 20 feet above the ground. Both adults build the at, imsy twig nest, which they line with dried leaves, bark and plant material. They will defend the nest and the immediate vicinity. The female lays three to six pale blue, unmarked eggs at two or three day intervals. Both parents incubate the eggs equally during the day, however, the male takes the night shift. The male will bring nesting material each time he relieves the female. The entire period from egg laying to the edglings leaving the nest may last only 17 days. Occasionally, the female will lay her eggs in the nest of another bird species. The young climb around the nesting tree when they are seven to nine days old, in order to meet the adults approaching with food. The young can y when they are three weeks old.

On Friday, April 26, world-renowned author, Sharon Draper, stood at the head of Glades Central’s auditorium, chatting jovially with Mr. Anderson, Glades Central’s principal, as an anticipatory crowd of 10th graders led in, carrying spine-worn copies of her book, “The Battle of Jericho,” atop three-ring binders. Glades Central purchased copies of Draper’s, “The Battle of Jericho,” for each 10th grader this year. The students greeted the former National Teacher of the Year, ve-time winner of the Coretta Scott King Award, and New York Times bestselling author, with questions that not only deepened her discussion of the book, but also provided her with the opportunity to speak about her many other books. Lively and glib, Dr. Draper reigned in the students’ attention with satirical jokes about their literature teachers and former students of her own from Cincinnati, Ohio. Afterwards, Dr. Draper took time to autograph many students’ books and speak with Glades Central’s own young authors, students recently published in Pens and Paper: Our Weapons of Mass Construction by the Oce Future Authors Project. International Lunch and Project ExhibitionSuccess Club celebrated the end of the year with an International Lunch and Project Exhibition on Wednesday, May 1 in the Media Center at the High School.

The SUCCESS initiative program focuses on giving students the tools to succeed in their endeavors during and after their high school years. The program is designed to have a major positive impact on the student body, to not just help the student accomplish a single task, but also to help them take on many more. Through the help of SUCCESS, the student will experience a connection to education unlike the average every day experience, and set short-term as well as long-term goals that can be accomplished with the help of the program. Collaborative working, hands-on action in the many different aspects of the community, and the planning of various eld trips are only some of the factors of the program that await the students.

Buker, Jr. honored two of its railroad employees for 50 years of dedicated service to the company. “Fifty years with the same company is increasingly rare in business today, so we were particularly proud to recognize and honor Edward Brown and Jimmy Langston for their long service to U.S. Sugar, and we also honored nearly 60 others with ve to 35 years of service,” said Robert. H. Buker, Jr. Brown and Langston (50 years) were honored at an Employee Service Recognition luncheon for both U.S. Sugar and South Central Florida Express railroads held at the Clewiston Elks Lodge last week. Also honored were Selby Reese (35 years); James Hardy (30 years); Guadalupe Paniagua, Merle Phillips, Vernon Sullivan and Bruce Wilson (25 years); Otha Carter, Roy Facey, Corey Ferguson and Mickey Watson (20 years); Johnny Jones, Franklin Kendrick, Eddie Parker, Mario Tomas and Johnny Welborn (15 years); Benjamin Escorcia, Antonio Rodriguez, Josue Simon, Andre Snead, Ray Holcomb, Sam Mallo, Marvin Rivera, David Romero and Matthew Wiggins (ten years); Douglas Angram, Adrian Arnold, Jeremy Brown, Ismael Ceniceros, Jaqurral Hale, George Hernandez, Jessie Herring, Peter Johnson, Henry Mason, Anthony Pugh, Matthew Simmons, Adan Rico and Lorenza Williams ( ve years). Harlem resident Edward Brown started at U.S. Sugar in 1963 as part of the “bull gang” in the Clewiston Mill, cleaning up spilled cane in and around the railcar cane dump. He later worked as a Mechanic’s Helper and then was promoted to Mechanic. Today, Brown is a Multicraftsman for the U.S. Sugar railroad. Over the years, Brown said that the building of the Clewiston Re nery and the big upgrades in the railroad tracks and equipment are the biggest changes that he’s seen in U.S. Sugar’s operations. Clewiston resident Jim Langston’s career at U.S. Sugar began nearly 51 years ago as an of ce messenger. Over the course of his career with the railroad, he held the positions of Yardmaster and Engineer. ---Presently, Langston is a Locomotive Engineer for U.S. Sugar’s railroad. He says the biggest changes over the past 50 years have been the move toward world class equipment and the building of a much stronger relationship between U.S. Sugar and its workers that exists today. “U.S. Sugar’s railroad operations delivered 33,000 tons of sugarcane to the mill every day during the 2012-2013 harvest season within 7.5 hours of harvest, an unprecedented ‘cut to crush’ time in the Florida sugar industry,” Buker said. “This allows us to extract the maximum amount of white sugar from the sugarcane in our fully integrated process. “We certainly appreciate everyone’s hard work,” said Buker.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Clewiston High School Senior Graduates from Edison State College. On Friday, May 3rd Travis Adam Robertson, son of James and Stephanie (Hayes) Robertson, graduated from Edison State College with his Associate in Arts Degree just weeks before his high school graduation. Working very hard, he manages to do all this, be in the top of his class, and held three leadership positions: State Sergeant at Arms and Chapter President of The Florida Public Service Association and Lieutenant of the Clewiston Police Department Explorer Post 684. Upon his high school graduation, Travis will be attending Florida State University majoring in Political Science this fall. It has been amazing to watch you set your goals and then break through them like they never existed. We love you very much, and are all very proud of your accomplishments. Mom, Dad and Corie TRAVIS ROBERTSON GRADUATION 19 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 16, 2013 With over 12,000 square miles of water, 2,000 miles of beautiful tidal shoreline and 12,000 miles of shable rivers, streams and canals, Florida is a boating paradise. As the weather heats up and kids get out of school, many people will be taking to the waters to cool off and relax. That's where the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) comes in. In addition to patrolling all of Florida's waterways, FWC staff promotes access to them by developing and maintaining boat ramps. The goal is for everyone to be able to enjoy the water safely. Each year, FWC of cers rescue around 1,000 people, many of them on the water. Earlier this year, in Escambia County, two people were left hanging onto the Bob Sikes Bridge after their boat began to take on water and sank. Fortunately, two FWC of cers responded and brought them safely to shore. However, not everyone is so lucky. In 2012, there were over 700 boating accidents, and 55 people tragically lost their lives as a result. FWC of cers do everything they can to keep people safe, but there are also measures that boaters should take to protect themselves. Remain alert, wear a life jacket at all times and designate a sober boat operator. These three simple actions can mean the difference between a fun day on the water and a tragic one. There are many comfortable life jackets on the market today, including compact styles that automatically in ate if you hit the water. Having it stored in a bin is legal for adults, but you will be much more likely to stay a oat if you're always wearing it. Some popular waterways can get crowded at times. Ensuring that your boat operator pays close attention to the surroundings, including signage, other boats and animals, and hasn't had any alcohol are absolutely necessary to be safe. Recently, FWC of cers in Duval County received a complaint of an impaired boater. When they located him, he had three children onboard and was unable to dock his boat. The of cers used a rope and pulled his boat to the dock. After sobriety tests and a check of his bloodalcohol level, he was arrested for BUI and taken off the water before he could injure himself or others. If you see someone operating dangerously, putting himself or others in harm's way say something! The FWC's Wildlife Alert hotline is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can report sh and wildlife law violations as well as dangerous boaters. Helping the FWC is another way to stay safe and enjoy your day on the water. Also, if you encounter any FWC of cers, remember it is their job to keep people safe, and they have many ways to do that. They may put on a boating safety course for students, be called to rescue someone or in some instances, have to issue a citation. If you are out on the water, you may be stopped brie y so they can check your vessel registration and safety equipment or inspect your shing licenses and catch. FWC of cers are trained to handle public interactions with respect and humility. But you can help ensure a positive experience and even reduce the number of times you are stopped. If an FWC of cer spots a boat without the proper registration, it is likely that the of cer will stop it. Operating recklessly is another sure way to be stopped. Also, having all of your safety gear onboard and easily accessible not only helps in case of emergency, but it makes checks go more quickly, as well. Enjoy A Safe Day On the Water

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 20 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 16, 2013 Palm Beach County Head Start/Early Head Start celebrated their rst Dental Poster/Art Gallery contest, on March 26th in the Glades and March 27th on the coast. This event displayed the oral health knowledge learned and shared throughout the year, as well as introduced a fun lled activity for the children (ages 3-5 yrs old), their parents and teaching staff. For a month, all centers and their participants were allowed to create their posters based on their dental knowledge and collaborative ideas. The centers in the Glades (Pahokee Head Start, South Bay Head Start/EHS and Palm Glades Head Start) all participated in this contest. The completed posters were delivered to the Hattie Field's Center in South Bay, and the following community leaders were invited to judge the three posters: Mr. Joe Kyles, City Commissioner of South Bay, Fl; Mrs. Barbara Davis, Retired Palm Beach County Educator; and Mr. Steve Wilson, Mayor, City of Belle Glade, Fl. Some of the children from the three centers performed dental songs for the guest and parents in attendance. There was plenty of dental art drawn by the children and displayed in the "Art Gallery." There were three winning posters in the art gallery. First place went to South Bay Head Start, second place went to Palm Glades Head Start and third place went to Pahokee Head Start. There was even a "Dental Basket Raf e;" Ms. Patty Wooten held the winning ticket. This event was coordinated by Ms. Nikole K. Harrell, Health Services Coordinator for the Glades, with the assistance of the staff from the three centers. Palm Beach County Head Start/Early Head Start looks forward to next year's dental event! Head Start Dental Event in the Glades them," he said with great disappointment. He wanted to build a drag racer to use as the company's advertisement. Before the electrical re claimed the building, Mr. Groves was on his way to ful lling his dreams. He was preparing to resell auto parts and become a vendor specializing in hotrod parts. He wanted his business to be a one-stop shop where people could have their cars or trucks repaired and rebuilt. The re claimed many items, like laptops with all of his business records and scanners used to diagnose problems in automobiles. While these items may be easy to replace, some of the other items damaged are not as easy to replace, like part manuals from the 1960s. The family's pets, who served as guards for the business, also died in the re. "If I had been ve minutes earlier I could have saved them," said Mr. Groves regretfully. Mr. Groves plans for him and his son-in-law to get back to work on as soon as possible, despite being short on equipment. "I'm going to use my crane to lift the motors for two vehicles I had lined up. If I had a couple of shipping containers I could be back on line in no time," he said. "I am going to salvage what I can, scrap the rest, and rebuild from there." In the midst of all his troubles, Mr. Groves was quick to be thankful to the re ghters who did everything possible to battle the re. "I asked them if they could please spare my house because everything that was dear to my family was in there, including our cats. They were able to ght the re in such a way that our home was spared," he said. "They did a good job. They even had a volunteer re crew here from Delray to maintain hotspots throughout the day. We are grateful." Many of Mr. Groves' loyal customers have stopped by to offer support and well wishes. "People have stopped by with donations and we appreciate it so much. I have helped people in these situations but I have never thought that it would be me in a situation like this." An online fundraiser has been set up for the family. Those wishing to help can visit GiveForward.com and contribute to the "Steve Groves Bene t".
