February hit-and-run accident resolved with Loxahatchee suspect’s arrestBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunA 26-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the tragic death of a Belle Glade teacher earlier this year. Megan Mathis, of Loxahatchee, has been charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving a death. She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail last Friday, May 31. Of cials had been searching for a suspect ever since arriving at the scene of the early morning accident involving Paula Vinsky, 48, also of Loxahatchee, who had been struck by a vehicle and then left for dead in Loxahatchee. The incident happened on February 13, at approximately 9 a.m. in the 4100 block of Calamondin Boulevard. According to a report released by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of ce, Vinsky had been walking that morning while wearing dark, nonre ective clothing -when the vehicle, a 2004 Jeep Liberty driven by Mathis, struck her from behind. No estimation on how fast the vehicle was going was given, but the force was enough to propel the victim onto the grassy shoulder. With the driver still unknown, the report gave particular weight to the fact that the driver of the vehicle did not stop. Woman Charged in Death of BG Teacher BY AMANDA RAMOS-GUY e SunPahokee residents and churches have been unsettled since learning of the Summer Solstice Pagan Festival coming to town. News of the negative response and planned protests reached the Pagan community and they quickly responded. The effort will go on as scheduled, and will take place at the Pahokee marina from June 19 to 23. Representatives of the Lady Liberty League (LLL) came to Pahokee in efforts to clear up misinformation regarding their religion and festival events, responding after The Sun Newspaper reported about local church representatives lambasting city of cials for allowing the festival to come to Pahokee. Online, the reaction was immediate: thousands of readers posted comments largely in defense of the festival's right to be held. "It is an honor to be in service to our community and help coordinate this effort that seeks to both educate the public and protect the religious activities of our community," said Rev. Peter Dybing, Coordinator for the LLL Florida Fest Task Force and ordained minister with Covenant of the Goddess. Rev. Dybing attended the community meeting held at the Hispanic Nazarene Church on Friday night. He expressed his and LLL's deep respect for the Christian denominations represented at the meeting. "Today, I am here because our community has reacted to negative statements made about our community. In a couple of weeks, we will be your neighbors for ve days," he said. "The reaction of the Pagan community to these statements is that, while not meant to be hurtful, they Pagans Reach Out to PahokeeCommunity hopes to resolve differences before festival later this month DRIVE A NEW 2013 FOCUS SE FOR ONLY $179 PER MONTH*24 month lease with approved credit through Ford Credit. $2209 plus tax, title, & license due at signing.

Get a Kit Visit the American Red Cross Store and buy the Deluxe Emergency Preparedness Kit. Discuss Kit Rules Once you get the kit, make sure that everyone knows where it is and that the items are to be used for emergencies only. You don’t want someone taking the water packet from the kit just because they don’t want to make the trip to the kitchen. Personalize Your Kit Have each family member pick their favorite canned foods and personal items and add them to the kit. Make an Evacuation Plan This is much easier and less time consuming than it seems. Pull out a map and highlighter and determine two or three destinations and the routes to get there. Be Informed It is important to know what natural disasters can affect your area and what to do in the event of one striking. Read through the appropriate Disaster and Emergency guides. Watch the weather and stay on top of the news if a hurricane or other severe weather is predicted to come your way. If local authorities are telling you to evacuate, then EVACUATE! If you followed the drills above, then you already have an evacuation plan. How The Red Cross Can Help After a Disaster After a disaster, communities and families turn to the Red Cross for help — and we stand ready to provide comfort and care, free of charge. The Red Cross helps disaster victims by providing safe shelter, hot meals, essential relief supplies, emotional support, and health services like rst aid. Trained Red Cross workers often meet one-on-one with families to develop individual plans and identify available resources to help aid recovery. Red Cross disaster relief focuses on relieving immediate disaster-caused needs so that families can get back on their feet and resume their lives as quickly as possible. The Red Cross also supports emergency workers, links family members outside the disaster area, and provides blood and blood products to disaster victims. Searching for Family Members During an emergency, letting your family know that you are safe can bring loved ones peace of mind. If you have a loved one in a disaster-affected area and are unable to contact them directly, please visit our Safe and Well service to see if your family member has registered. If no information is available, contact your local Red Cross chapter to request assistance. Red Cross Offers Family Preparedness Tips

Heavy Equipment Mechanics program moves from West Tech to Palm Beach State’s Belle Glade campusStudents in the Glades studying to become diesel and heavy equipment mechanics are now getting their training on Palm Beach State College’s Belle Glade campus. The Heavy Equipment Mechanics program is among ve certi cate programs offered at the campus that do not require a high school diploma or GED. The College has moved its Heavy Equipment Mechanics program from West Tech Educational Center, a Palm Beach County school district facility, to the Technical Education Center on campus. The move, made in time for the summer classes, brings together all of the campus’ postsecondary adult vocational (PSAV) certi cate programs. “It’s a real plus to have everyone in one place. With the PSAV programs on campus, [students] have easier access to the resources if they’re taking some other classes. They can use some of the labs, as well,” said Dr. Barry Moore, dean of educational services. “Sometimes, students may be a little apprehensive about going to an off-site facility. People tend to be attracted to a crowd. They know where the campus is. The [TEC] building is the forefront of the campus.” Before the 33,982 square-foot Technical Education Center opened in 2010, several of the College’s other PSAV programs were also housed at West Tech. The Heavy Equipment Mechanics program, which prepares students for employment in areas such as bus, truck and diesel engine mechanics, mobile heavy equipment mechanics, and construction equipment mechanics, is among ve PSAV programs offered at the Belle Glade campus that do not require students to have a high school diploma or GED to enroll. The others are Cosmetology, Welding, Nails Technician and Facials Specialty. The programs are designed to prepare students to go directly to work in areas where job opportunities exist.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades Audubon The White-winged Dove is native to the southwestern United States, Mexico, West Indies, and Central America. Its range is expanding northward and some can be found occasionally in Alaska, Ontario, Maine, and Newfoundland. High densities of this dove species are found in Texas, Florida, Arizona, and Louisiana. Most of the Florida population is from birds that were purposely released in order to establish a breeding population; however a few natural vagrants have also occurred. Some of these doves migrate into Florida from the west during October and November. This plump dove is brown overall, with a dark line on the cheek and blue skin around its orange-red eyes. It has a thin bill and small head. The white strip at the edge of its folded wing becomes a bright ash of white in the middle of a dark wing when it is in ight. The tip of its short, square tail is white, which sets off the black strips from the gray underside. The oldest documented White-winged Dove lived to be 21 years and nine months old. Their most common call is a long drawn out cooing "who-cooks-for-you". Many other variations are heard, especially during the breeding season. The White-winged Dove lives in dense forests and streamside woodlands, as well as urban and suburban areas. It often forms large roosts in inland Florida. It can be seen eating at bird feeders or foraging on the ground. Its diet consists mainly of grains, seeds and fruit. This species will consume small stones to help pulverize plant material in their gizzards and they may eat snails and bone fragments as a source of calcium. These doves can suck or swallow water without moving their heads. A pair of White-winged Doves will stay together for at least one breeding season. The male will choose his territory and the general nesting site, while his mate selects the speci c nest site. The nest site is usually in the shade on the crotch or branch of a tree. The male gathers twigs and brings them to the female, who constructs the nest in a couple of days. The imsy bowl shaped nest may also contain weeds, grasses, or Spanish moss. Sometimes the nest is lined with pine needles, leaves, bark, or feathers. The female lays two white eggs, which are incubated for about two weeks. Incubating females will remain motionless while incubating eggs, but their bright white wing strip is often visible. The White-winged Dove uses a secretion from its esophagus, known as crop milk, to feed nestlings. The young birds edge when they are about 15 days old. The White-winged dove will feign a broken wing in order to draw predators away from the nest. A second brood is commonly raised by the breeding pair. During last week's bird surveys, White-winged Doves were reported with young or on nests at several locations in inland Florida.

Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 2.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.43/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 1.5 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.64/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 3.0 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 2.2 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 13.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.1 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. "While the national average has given up some ground to start the driving season, motorists have certainly seen a lot of ups and downs in different areas of the country," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "One thing remains the same throughout the United States, and that is we're still reliant on oil re neries to process crude oil into gasoline. When they go partially of ine, whether expected or unexpected, there's going to be tightness in gasoline supply, and that has an almost immediately impact at the gas pump," DeHaan said.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 Even though nearly two-thirds of families with small children plan on swimming in areas without lifeguards this summer, many people don’t know the right thing to do in water emergencies or how to keep their loved ones safe in the water, according to a new American Red Cross poll. “People tend to spend more time in and around the water during the summer, so now is a great time to review water safety precautions so you know what to do to stay safe,” said Regional Executive Rob Levine. The survey ndings show that people mistakenly believe some steps, such as having a swimming buddy or otation device, will keep them safe. For example, while the Red Cross recommends that people always swim with a buddy in designated swimming areas supervised by lifeguards, buddies alone are not enough to keep swimmers safe. Two thirds (67 percent) of those asked mistakenly believe that putting in atable arm bands, or “water wings,” on children is enough to keep them safe when an adult is not nearby. These are not lifesaving devices. Children and weak/inexperienced swimmers should wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets, while remaining under constant adult supervision. The Red Cross poll found 63 percent of families with children plan on swimming in an area without a lifeguard this summer. However, nearly half of those polled had never taken swimming lessons, with African-Americans (32 percent) less likely to have received formal training. Nearly half of Americans say they have had an experience where they were afraid they would drown, according to the ndings. Hispanics reported a higher percentage (66 percent) of having such an experience over Whites (46 percent). Overall, four in 10 (41 percent) say they know someone who was in danger of drowning, which is an increase of 16 percentage points from a similar 2009 Red Cross survey. Another concerning nding in the 2013 Red Cross survey was that most of those polled were unsure of the right steps to take when someone appears to be in distress in the water: More than nine in 10 (93 percent) people were unable to identify the correct order of actions to take to help a swimmer who may be in danger of drowning. “The correct steps to take when you see a swimmer who needs help is to shout for help, reach or throw the person a rescue or otation device and tell them to grab it; then call 9-1-1 if needed,” Levine said. “People think that if a person isn’t calling out for help that they must not need help. However, they are likely using all their energy to just try to stay above water.” “People think they should enter the water to save someone, but often this endangers the life of the rescuer,” he added. Other signs of a swimmer in trouble include treading water and waving an arm; doggie paddling with no forward progress; hanging onto a safety line; oating on their back and waving their arms; arms extended side or front, pressing down for support, but making no forward progress; positioned vertically in the water, but not kicking legs; underwater for more than 30 seconds; and oating at surface, face-down, for more than 30 seconds. Red Cross swimming lessons help people develop skills and water safety behaviors that help them be more comfortable and safe when they are in, on and around the water. The Red Cross encourages all household members to enroll in age-appropriate water orientation and Learn-toSwim programs. To nd classes for your family, contact your local aquatic facility and ask for American Red Cross swimming programs. An infographic highlighting survey results has been developed. People can nd additional water safety information at redcross.org/watersafetytips.

A link to the obituaries is a vailable at www.newszap.com.Norman Eugene Goodwin, 84JUNCTION TX Norman Eugene Goodwin, born in Hasting, Florida to Ralph Mason, Sr. and Anne Matilda Leonardy on April 27, 1929, left this life May 28, 2013 with his daughter by his side. He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Ralph and Tommy Goodwin; two sons, Parke and Scotty Goodwin; and Charles and Sara Ringling. He leaves behind one sister, Rita Lambert of St. Augustine, Fla.; one son, David Goodwin of Deer Park, Texas; one daughter, Marie Armes and husband Clay of Junction, Texas; grandson, David Bear Terrell, II of Beaumont, Texas; granddaughter, Keeley Armes of San Angelo, Texas; granddaughter, Keisha Jones and her husband Jamey of Brownwood, Texas; a nephew that was more like a son and our brother, Billy Glisson of St. Augustine, Fla; ve greatgrandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Norman served in the U.S. Army during the Korean con ict gaining the rank of Sergeant rst class before leaving the military in 1953 to come to Texas and run shrimp boats in Brownsville, TX. He returned to Florida upon the death of his son Scotty to become a farmer for his Uncle Doc on the Brighton Indian Reservation, Lykes Brothers Ranch, and in Lakeport, Florida. Norman was known to catch a sh or two on Lake Okeechobee. He loved to hunt and sh and passed that love to his sons. He and his dog Bob were famous for hunting hogs to birds in Florida. Norman returned to Texas to become an oil boat captain until he retired, moving to Junction in 1992. Norman would grow the most beautiful owers and vegetables until his eyesight no longer allowed him to do that. He never missed a sporting event for Bear or Keeley and would talk about them to all who would listen. He was a proud granddaddy. When being told he had cancer in 2010, he replied "I will not take any treatments I have lived a good life and I have seen my children and grandchildren grow up and that is all I need". Any project or fundraiser his daughter was active in he was just as active and y'all know Marie had many. Many may not know this but he wrote poetry and gifted a book of his poems to his daughter in 1991. Norman maintained his sense of humor until the day he left us. The family will return to Lake Okeechobee to spread his ashes on the lake he loved in August.

LOWEST PRICE EVERYDAY! Obituaries 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 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 of time. 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, these 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 half-inch 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 for 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. Wildlife ‘Rescues’ Can Do More Harm than Good COURTESY PHOTO

With Father’s Day on the horizon, I’d like to offer you some parenting possibilities. Let me share with you from the start, I make no claim in being an expert on parenting, but over the years I have had a front row seat in observing many parenting situations. First off, it seems like you parents have a lot of things working against you. Schedules are working against you by consuming time you would like to spend with family. Stress is working against you by absorbing emotional energy you should be expending on your children. The values (or lack of values) in our world is working against you. The media and music your kids are exposed to works against Christian values. Raising kids is without doubt an uphill battle. Parents take heart! Even in the midst of this uphill battle, there is a way to raise positive kids in a negative world. One of the biblical secrets for steering children in the direction they should go involves bestowing the parental blessing upon each child. What is the parental blessing? The parental blessing doesn’t mean bestowing possessions on children. Some parents have the distorted idea that giving material things is the best way to express love, affection, discipline, or attention. This has pushed some parents to work day and night, night and day, to buy their children “nice things.” We all have the desire to provide our children with nice things, things we may not have been able to enjoy when we were children. Let me share with you that nothing you buy your children can replace giving them both your time and attention. In the long run, your children won’t remember all the toys and trinkets you gave them; but they will remember the time and attention and specially shared moments you gave them. As I understand it, the parental blessing your children need and desire includes three elements. First, the parental blessing involves bestowing upon your child a sense of value. It includes providing a sense of acceptance, which means helping your children know they are meaningful and valuable to you. For sons or daughters in biblical times, receiving their father’s blessing was a momentous event. It gave those children a tremendous sense of being highly valued by their parents and even pictured a special future for them. At a speci c point in their lives, they would hear words of encouragement, love, and acceptance from their parents. Second, the parental blessing involves an element of affection. Children desire and thrive on love and affection from their parents. I like the bumper stickers that ask, “Have you hugged your child today?” Third, the parental blessing always involves the element of af rmation. Children need positive feedback and constant encouragement. They need to be given positive words when they perform successfully. They need positive, encouraging motivation when they experience failure. Too many young people only hear the negatives and never hear mom or dad say things like, “You did a good job”, “I am proud of you”, or “Keep up the good work”. The fact is that bestowing the full blessing of acceptance, affection, and af rmation will not happen by accident or attrition for most of us. Life is so hectic that for many parents the “just right” time to communicate a spoken blessing never comes around. Don’t be the parent who wakes up one day and realizes your little children are grown up and you missed the opportunity to bestow your blessing upon them. If you want to raise positive children in a negative world, make a decision now to do what is necessary to bless your children. Bestow your blessing now, and constantly renew and af rm it with them! Religion Column Know What To Do In Case of Emergency It is important to make sure that the entire family is prepared and informed in the event of a disaster or emergency. You may not always be together when these events take place and should have plans for making sure you are able to contact and nd one another. The American Red Cross suggests some basic steps to make sure you remain safe: Meet with your family or household members. Discuss how to prepare and respond to emergencies that are most likely to happen where you live, learn, work and play. Identify responsibilities for each member of your household and plan to work together as a team. If a family member is in the military, plan how you would respond if they were deployed. Plan what to do in case you are separated during an emergency Choose two places to meet: Right outside your home in case of a sudden emergency, such as a re, or outside your neighborhood in case you cannot return home or are asked to evacuate. Choose an out-of-area emergency contact person. It may be easier to text or call long distance if local phone lines are overloaded or out of service. Everyone should have emergency contact information in writing or saved in their cell phones. Plan what to do if you have to evacuate Decide where you would go and what route you would take to get there. You may choose to go to a hotel/motel, stay with friends or relatives in a safe location, or go to an evacuation shelter if necessary. Practice evacuating your home twice a year. Drive your planned evacuation route and plot alternate routes on your map in case roads are impassable. Plan ahead for your pets Keep a phone list of pet-friendly hotels/ motels and animal shelters that are along your evacuation routes. Let Your Family Know You’re Safe If your community has experienced a disaster, register on the American Red Cross Safe and Well website to let your family and friends know you are safe. You may also call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) and select the prompt for “Disaster” to register yourself and your family. Make an Emergency Plan

Today, I am here to clear up these misunderstandings.” Rev. Dybing explained that “worshiping Satan” is an example of a misconception surrounding the Pagans; instead, the foundation of the religion is nature. He also explains that their intentions are not to convert residents over to Paganism. They are not seeking support from the community but the freedom to hold their religious event without incident. “Long before our nation confronted the abomination that was slavery, long before we addressed the rights of women to vote, our founding fathers came to our shores in search of religious liberty, the concept in engrained in us as Americans,” he said. “What I am here asking is not for your support, or your approval, but your tolerance for our right to engage in religious activity. If anyone were to protest the activities of your church, our community, would, if asked, come to your defense. We ask only the same, please don’t protest our event”. After Rev. Dybing’s statements, Pastor Jorge Chivara, who organized the meeting, declared to all present that there would be “No Protest” and shook hands. Rev. Dybing welcomed the community’s prayers saying, “we see all prayer as a good thing.” Rev. Dybing views the handshake as a “signi cant gesture in heated times”. “Our experience in dealing with leaders of the Christian community is that they keep the commitments they make,” said Rev. Dybing. “Our community is very grateful for this commitment and we feel we have achieved a level of religious tolerance that will allow the event to go forward. Members of our community will engage all members of your community with respect and have a positive economic impact on the community.” Late Tuesday afternoon, LLL learned that the process of planning a church service on the north end of the marina was underway. “I think we have made great progress. We welcome the prayers of the community and are in support of the Christian community’s right to hold their worship service,” said Rev. Dybing. Bruce Mullins, an organizer of the festival, said the last thing his community wanted to cause was a stir. “We are lovers of life and joy and community,” said Mullins. We do not want to separate your town or upset your clergy.” FestivalContinued From Page 1 “Our community is very grateful for this commitment and we feel we have achieved a level of religious tolerance that will allow the event to go forward.” Rev.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 Hurricanes are strong storms that cause lifeand property-threatening hazards such as ooding, stormsurge, high winds and tornadoes. Preparation is the best protection against the dangers of a hurricane. Know the difference between Hurricane Watch and Hurricane Warning. Hurricane Watch Hurricane conditions are a threat within 48 hours. Review your hurricane plans, keep informed and be ready to act if a warning is issued. Hurricane Warning Hurricane conditions are expected within 36 hours. Complete your storm preparations and leave the area if directed to do so by authorities. What should I do? Listen to an NOAA Weather Radio for critical information from the National Weather Service (NWS). Check your disaster supplies and replace or restock as needed. Bring in anything that can be picked up by the wind (bicycles, lawn furniture). Close windows, doors and hurricane shutters. If you do not have hurricane shutters, close and board up all windows and doors with plywood. Turn the refrigerator and freezer to the coldest setting and keep them closed as much as possible so that food will last longer if the power goes out. Turn off propane tanks and unplug small appliances. Fill your car's gas tank. Talk with members of your household and create an evacuation plan. Planning and practicing your evacuation plan minimizes confusion and fear during the event. Learn about your community's hurricane response plan. Plan routes to local shelters, register family members with special medical needs as required and make plans for your pets to be cared for. Evacuate if advised by authorities. Be careful to avoid ooded roads and washed out bridges. Because standard homeowners insurance doesn't cover ooding, it's important to have protection from the oods associated with hurricanes, tropical storms, heavy rains and other conditions that impact the U.S. For more information on ood insurance, please visit the National Flood Insurance Program website at www.FloodSmart.gov. What supplies do I need? Water (at least a 3-day supply, one gallon per person per day), food (at least a 3-day supply of non-perishable, easy-to-prepare food), a ashlight, battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible), extra batteries, rst aid kit and medications (7-day supply), other medical items (hearing aids with extra batteries, glasses, contact lenses, syringes, cane), a multi-purpose tool, sanitation and personal hygiene items, copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certi cates, insurance policies), a cell phone with its charger, family and emergency contact information, extra cash, an emergency blanket, map(s) of the area, baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers), pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, food dish), tools and supplies for securing your home, extra set of car keys and house keys, extra clothing, hat and sturdy shoes, rain gear, insect repellent and sunscreen, and a camera for photos of damage. What do I do after a hurricane? Continue listening to an NOAA Weather Radio or the local news for the latest updates. Stay alert for extended rainfall and subsequent ooding, even after the hurricane or tropical storm has ended. If you evacuated, return home only when of cials say it is safe. Drive only if necessary and avoid ooded roads and washed-out bridges. Keep away from loose or dangling power lines and report them immediately to the power company. Stay out of any building that has water around it. Inspect your home for damage. Take pictures of damage, both of the building and its contents, for insurance purposes. Use ashlights in the dark. Do NOT use candles. Avoid drinking or preparing food with tap water until you are sure it's not contaminated. Check refrigerated food for spoilage. If in doubt, throw it out. Wear protective clothing and be cautious when cleaning up to avoid injury. Watch animals closely and keep them under your direct control. Use the telephone only for emergency calls. Let Your Family Know You're Safe If your community has experienced a hurricane, or any disaster, register on the American Red Cross Safe and Well website available through RedCross.org/SafeandWell to let your family and friends know about your welfare. If you don't have Internet access, call 1-866-GETINFO to register yourself and your family. Hurricane Safety Checklist COURTESY PHOTO

Tips for Summer Reading Sugar Bears, we want you have a great summer! We hope you and your parents remember all of the work and growth you’ve experienced to keep a steady climb going in your reading skills. Summer offers many opportunities for fun. However, every year, teachers see one speci c downside to summer. Students who stop reading and no longer practice the reading strategies they learned, return back to school below the reading level they worked so hard to reach. They have actually lost many hard-won reading skills by not reading! In other words, not growing, means shrinking, or going backwards. We have seen this so often, we call it the dreaded “summer slide”. Parents and students, we need your help to avoid the summer slide. The remedy is easy, just read all you can. You can read: the summer slide books you were given, the nutrition and ingredient labels on food boxes and cans, recipes while cooking up yummy goodies with family, books you check out from the public library, your journal, emails or letters from your pen pal, Tumble Books, Star-Fall, River Deep, National Geographic for Kids, Brain Pop Jr. and a good-night book out loud with your family. For the 2013 Just Read Florida summer recommended reading list, go to: http://www.justreadfamilies.org/SummerReadingList.pdf. Have some awesome fun reading Sugar Bears. We look forward to seeing you in the fall.Belle Glade ElementaryEagle Rewards Did you know that you are earning points when you attend most of our school functions?

Children: reducing fear in uncertain circumstances Disasters strike quickly and without warning. They are frightening for adults, and can be traumatic for children, especially if they don’t know what to do. During a disaster, your family may have to leave your home and depart from your daily routine. Children may become anxious, confused, or frightened. It is important to give children guidance that will help them reduce their fears. Children depend on daily routines. They wake up, eat breakfast, go to school, play with friends. When emergencies or disasters interrupt this routine, many children may become anxious. In a disaster, they’ll look to you and other adults for help. How you react to an emergency gives them clues on how to act. If you react with alarm, your child may become more scared. They see your fear as proof that the danger is real. If you seem overcome with a sense of loss, your child may feel their losses more strongly. Children’s fears may also arise from their imagination, and you should take these feelings seriously. A child who feels afraid is afraid. Your words and actions can provide reassurance. When talking with your child, be sure to present a realistic picture that is both honest and manageable. Feelings of fear are healthy and natural for both adults and children. But as an adult, you need to keep control of the situation. When you’re sure that danger has passed, concentrate on your child’s emotional needs by asking the child what’s uppermost in his or her mind. Having children participate in the family’s recovery activities will help them feel that their life will soon return to “normal.” Your response during this time may have a lasting impact. Seniors: the importance of a personal support network The American Red Cross recommends that senior citizens create a personal support network made up of several individuals who will check in on you in an emergency, to ensure your wellness and to give assistance if needed. This network can consist of friends, roommates, family members, relatives, personal attendants, coworkers and neighbors. Ideally, a minimum of three people can be identi ed at each location where you regularly spend time, for example at work, home, school or volunteer site. There are seven important items to discuss and implement with a personal support network: Make arrangements, prior to an emergency, for your support network to immediately check on you after a disaster and, if needed, offer assistance. exchange important keys; show them where you keep emergency supplies; share copies of your relevant emergency documents, evacuation plans and emergency health information card; agree on and practice methods for contacting each other in an emergency. do not count on the telephones working; you and your personal support network should always notify each other when you are going out of town and when you will return; the relationship should be mutual. you have a lot to contribute! learn about each other’s needs and how to help each other in an emergency. you might take responsibility for food supplies and preparation, organizing neighborhood watch meetings and interpreting, among other things. Other ways to stay safe: get informed Want to know what else you can do to better care for your loved ones as they get older? You can start by purchasing a copy of our Family Caregiving reference guide and learn what you can do to improve home safety, encourage healthy eating and prepare for legal and nancial issues.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 19 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 Take action during National Hurricane Preparedness WeekBY HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES SECRETARY KATHLEEN SEBELIUSThe devastation wrought by the recent powerful tornadoes in the Oklahoma City area is a tragic reminder of the importance of being prepared for severe weather of all kinds. National Hurricane Preparedness Week, May 25 June 1, is a time to emphasize that preparing for these massive storms is vital to every family’s health and well-being. By preparing now, you can protect yourself and your loved ones from the damaging impacts of a storm. Last fall, many along the East Coast felt the impact of Hurricane Sandy, one of the largest hurricanes in history. The storm affected millions of people, and for some, the devastation will be felt for a lifetime. This season, I urge you to make a plan to stay safe and protect your health as storms develop so you are ready when minutes count. Steps you can take to keep you and your family safe include: Discuss with your family what you will do if you need to evacuate. Where will you meet? What will you take with you? How will you check in so that you’ll know who is okay and who isn’t? If you have a pet, make a plan for your pet if you have to evacuate. Get backups for things you need every day: Do you have backup clean drinking water? Do you have a backup supply of medication and a copy of your current prescription? If you use electricity to run medical equipment (like a nebulizer, oxygen concentrator, or ventilator) or to keep your medication refrigerated, do you know where to go if the power goes out? Do you know where you can go to recharge your batteries? Do you know who you will call if you need help getting there? Do you have a backup copy of your medical record? You can ask your doctor to print a copy for you. You can also save an electronic copy in the cloud or on an external hard drive or enter the information into a smart phone or tablet application. Make sure you know how to use a backup generator safely. Remember to keep it outdoors and away from windows to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Talk to your friends and family about your emergency plans. Establish family and friends as your lifelines and talk about how you can help each other and communicate during and after a hurricane. If you know a storm is coming, follow the instructions of your local emergency of cials. If they suggest evacuating, get out of harm’s way. Make sure to fully charge your cell phone or other mobile devices so you can communicate after a storm. Plan to text, email, or use social media to let everyone know you’re okay so phone lines remain open for rst responders. These steps can save your life and keep your loved ones safe. Always be Prepared What important information will help you and your loved ones to stay safe even in the worst situationLearn the types of disasters or emergencies that may likely occur in your area. These events can range from those affecting only you and your family, like a home re or medical emergency, to those affecting your entire community, like an earthquake or ood. Identify how local authorities will notify you during a disaster and how you will get information, whether through local radio, TV or NOAA Weather Radio stations or channels. Know the difference between different weather alerts, such as watches and warnings, and what actions to take in each case. Know what actions to take to protect yourself during disasters that may occur in areas where you travel or have moved recently. For example, if you travel to a place where earthquakes are common and you are not familiar with them, make sure you know what to do to protect yourself should one occur. When a major disaster occurs, your community can change in an instant. Loved ones may be hurt and emergency response is likely to be delayed. In these situations it is important to be self suf cient. Make sure that at least one member of your household is trained in rst aid and CPR, and knows how to use an automated external de brillator (AED). This training is useful in many emergency situations. Share what you have learned with your family, household and neighbors, and encourage them to be informed. Make emergency contact cards for all household members. Cards should include the contact information for each household member, such as work, school and cell phone numbers. Fold the card so it ts into your pocket, wallet or purse and carry the card with you so it is available in the event of a disaster or other emergency. Informed People are Safer During Disasters?

This school year’s academic theme is “We Are Building a Strong Academic Foundation.” The entire staff has worked hard to ensure the academic and social success of students. One of the main goals of our Language Arts and English Department is to increase the passing rate of students on the FCAT Writes and to enhance their writing skills. The new writing criteria mandated by the state of Florida and the Palm Beach County School District presented a challenge, which we were more than willing to take on as a school. Crossroads Academy set high expectations for all 8th and 10th grade students, and worked diligently as a team to make sure that students reached their goals and potential. The students were motivated throughout the school year by our positive school culture, dedicated teachers and staff, and weekly writing workshops. A total of 32 middle and high school students scored a level 3.5 and 4.0, on the state of Florida FCAT Writing test. To celebrate their successful writing scores, the students were taken to the Golden Corral Restaurant in Royal Palm Beach, Florida. Travel to the restaurant was magni cent, thanks to the two, white stretch limousines provided by community donations. Pride and joy could be seen on the faces of the teachers and students as they climbed into the beautiful limousines. School incentives, such as the limousine ride and restaurant outing, motivate students and let them know that through perseverance, dreams become reality.
