Investigators with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce are busy today looking into the mysterious death of a Pahokee woman. While conducting a welfare check in the 700 block of Eisenhower Drive yesterday, June 24, at approximately 11 p.m., deputies arrived to discover a black female deceased in the residence. According to information released through the sheriff’s of ce media relations bureau, detectives believe the woman is the victim of a homicide. No other information on the woman or the crime has been released. Detectives are continuing with their investigation, and have yet to notify a next of kin.

Deputies are now on the lookout for the young woman, who went missing while in the process of obtaining a domestic violence injunction against a former boyfriend. In announcing the search for the woman, Teri Barbera, media relations director for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce, said that “detectives are extremely concerned for her safety.” Deborah Ann Jessie was last seen around noontime on Sunday, June 23 at a friend’s house in Pahokee.

Campers enjoyed musical performances by Grassy Waters, Witch’s Mark, and many more. Mama Gina performed a song she wrote called The Day the Pagans Came to Town, which tells about the week’s events.

The city fell severely short of the funds necessary to pull the event off; and while local pastors and business owners had donated approximately $1,500 to the cause, the city still needed at least $10,000 more to purchase the reworks. “Over the past six years, we have been very successful in raising the necessary donations for the event,” said Derrek Moore, Pahokee city manager. “However, this year we faced some dif culty in raising the funds for the event.” Jennifer R. Earnest, vice president of the Howard E. Hill Foundation, learned of the need through social media and stepped up. “One of my fondest memories as a child when I lived in Belle Glade was taking a ride to Pahokee to see the 4th of July Fireworks,” she said. She said the organization was more than happy to help. “We do what we do for the community and not the kudos,” she said shying away from the spotlight. “H.E. Hill Foundation, Inc. feels this is something the community needs as a positive event for the people to celebrate this great holiday, community, and country we share together. My grandfather, Doc Hill, was very patriotic and proud of America.

BY TOM NORDLIE IFAS NewsIn malaria-ridden parts of Africa, mosquito netting protects people from being infected while they sleep. Now, a University of Florida entomologist wants to improve the netting by coating it with insecticide toxic only to mosquitoes. The insecticide would work by interfering with an enzyme found in the nervous systems of mosquitoes and many other organisms called acetylcholinesterase. Existing insecticides target the enzyme but affect a broad range of species, said entomologist Jeff Bloomquist, a professor in UF’s Emerging Pathogens Institute and its Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Acetylcholinesterase helps regulate nervous system activity by stopping electrical signaling in nerve cells. If the enzyme can’t do its job, the mosquito begins convulsing and dies. The research team’s goal is to develop compounds perfectly matched to the acetylcholinesterase molecules in malaria-transmitting mosquitoes, he said. “A simple analogy would be that we’re trying to make a key that ts perfectly into a lock,” Bloomquist said. “We want to shut down the enzyme, but only in target species.” Malaria is spread by mosquitoes in the Anopheles genus, notably Anopheles gambiae, native to Africa. The disease is common in poor communities where homes may not have adequate screens to keep ying insects out. Malaria is caused by microscopic organisms called protists, which are present in the saliva of infected female mosquitoes and transmitted when the mosquitoes bite. Initial symptoms of the disease can include fever, chills, convulsions, headaches, and nausea. In severe cases, malaria can cause kidney failure, coma, and death. Worldwide, malaria infected about 219 million people in 2010 and killed about 660,000, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 90 percent of those infected lived in Africa. Bloomquist and colleagues at Virginia Tech, where the project is based, are trying to perfect mosquito-speci c compounds that can be manufactured on a large scale and applied to mosquito netting and surfaces where the pests might land. It will take at least four to ve years before the team has developed and tested a compound enough that it’s ready to be submitted for federal approval, Bloomquist said. The team recently published a study in the journal Pesticide Biochemistry and Physiology comparing eight experimental compounds with commercially available insecticides that target the enzyme. Though they were less toxic to mosquitoes than commercial products, the experimental compounds were far more selective, indicating researchers are on the right track, he said. “The compounds we’re using are not very toxic to honeybees, sh, and mammals, but we need to re ne them further, make them more toxic to mosquitoes and safer for nontarget organisms,” he said. In the project, Bloomquist tests experimental compounds on Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes, held in a quarantine facility on the UF campus. He worked at Virginia Tech for 20 years and came to UF in 2009. Bloomquist joined the project at the behest of lead investigator Paul Carlier, a professor of organic and medicinal chemistry in Virginia Tech’s College of Science. Funding for the project came from a veyear, $3.6 million grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health. In Florida, malaria was a signi cant problem in the early 20th century, transmitted by native Anopheles mosquitoes. The disease has been greatly curtailed via mosquito-control practices, but even today, cases are occasionally reported in the Sunshine State.

The vendor's row was full of various small shops for the campers; shops included many handmade items like knives, pottery, jewelry, and wooden utes. Campers were also able to receive temporary airbrushed or hand painted tattoos, tarot card readings, and various workshops. Friday night everyone gathered at the re circle to enjoy a spectacular re spinning performance by the Fahrenheit 360 troupe; acts included a aming bullwhip, ring of re, and re breathing. In one performance the re spinners danced to the beating of drums. The performance concluded with a speech on the signi cance of re to the Pagans. Not only did the campers spend money inside the campground but Mr. Mullins estimated that the festival pumped at least $5,000-6,000 into Pahokee's economy. "We were buying cakes, owers, gas, ice; we were shopping at the Save-a-Lot, eating at Poppy Jimmy's, and Cozy Corner," he said. Mr. Mullins praised the community for honoring their word and allowing them to hold their festival in peace without being protested. "The residents and business owners treated us very kindly in their stores," he said. "We only had one minor incident when we rst came where a small group of people were protesting but we spoke with them, gave them some water, and they left. After that no one else protested." Instead of protesting, local churches held a revival and prayer meeting at Pahokee's gym during the time of the solstice. Rev. Patricia Wallace reported to the city's commission Tuesday night that it was a success and donated the week's offerings back to the city for the city's health and wellness program as appreciation for allowing them to use the gym. Mr. Mullins also very proudly explains that they festival received MTV's recognition as one of the top ve places to celebrate the summer solstice. Mr. Mullins said he is hoping to plan a winter solstice in December if things work out and hope it will be a larger event than the summer solstice.

Whether you’re a risk taker or a more conservative saver, retirement planning should be a top priority. Taking charge of your savings, regardless of your life stage or savings style, can help to ensure you get “to” and “through” retirement and live the lifestyle you think is right for you. If you have an employer-sponsored retirement plan, experts say that you can bene t by taking a closer look at your account to explore ways to combat risk and protect savings for the future. “No matter what kind of saver you are, connecting with a retirement consultant or nancial professional can help restore con dence in your retirement plan,” says Chuck Cornelio, President of Retirement Plan Services at Lincoln Financial Group. “These individuals will review your risk preferences, as well as what’s available within your plan to help you map out a path to retirement that is right for you.” Consider the following ve tips that can help you manage risk and volatility within an employer-sponsored account, like a 401(k) or 403(b): Know your plan: Many options within an employer-sponsored plan are designed to offer capital protection and volatility management. Some can accommodate changing market conditions, seeking to protect growth as the market uctuates and defend against losses. Knowing what investment options are available to you is the rst step to protecting your savings. Consider lifestyle options: Your risk tolerance may change over time based on how many years away you are from retirement. For example, investments known as target date funds are designed to manage risk over time without moving assets out of a retirement portfolio, so participants always stay invested. The exibility of these funds can cover a broad range of risk tolerance. Explore in-plan guarantee options: Some features in today’s retirement plans include guaranteed income options that can provide savers with a steady income stream in retirement, while also offering protection against downturns in the market. Review your investments: Ask your employer about retirement planning education, online tools or one-on-one support to get a better handle on whether your investment strategy is in line with your overall retirement goals, as well as your risk tolerance. Take advantage of all the resources available to you. Stay the course: A common mistake people make is letting their emotions lead to actions. Resist the temptation to move out of your investments into areas you think are more stable. The best way to prepare for retirement is to ride the market’s waves and remain invested for the long-term. More retirement planning information and tools can be found at www.lincoln nancial.com. If you’re enrolled in your company’s retirement plan, remember to stay on track to be better prepared for the years ahead. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 27, 2013 BY PATRICIA DOBBINS Hendry County Department of HealthAs we head into the summer, temperatures will continue to rise. The Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties want you to be aware of the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke become more common in very humid environments. High humidity reduces the effectiveness of sweating and cooling the body. To avoid becoming dehydrated, it is important to drink plenty of uids -especially water -even if you don’t feel thirsty. Signs of dehydration include thirst, weakness, nausea, muscle cramps, headache, and feeling dizzy or light-headed. Warning signs of heat exhaustion can vary, but may include the following: heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, tiredness or weakness, dizziness and/or fainting, headache, nausea or vomiting, your skin may be cool and moist, your pulse rate may be fast and weak, and/or your breathing may be fast and shallow. When heat exhaustion is untreated, it may progress to heat stroke. Try to cool off and seek medical attention if symptoms get worse or if the symptoms last longer than one hour. Here are some ways to help prevent heat exhaustion or heat stroke: drink lots of water or drink cool, non-alcoholic beverages, wear lightweight and light-colored clothing, seek an air-conditioned location when possible, take a cool shower or bath, do not engage in strenuous activities when you know temperatures are at high levels. Plan ahead. If you know that you will be outside for extended periods of time, please be sure to have water available. Get into the habit of drinking water throughout the day -not just when you feel like you have a dry mouth.

THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins Church, ClewistonSometimes our dog is reluctant to eat her dinner. She is accustomed to eating it in the living room from her bowl near the television. If another dog appears on the TV screen, she’ll bark and eat all that has been set before her. I’ve concluded that she feels the TV is a large window. She’ll even smell behind it looking for that other dog from time to time. We’ve asked her if she’d like to share her dinner with those other dogs; apparently, and emphatically, not! There have been times when she didn’t particularly like what was set before her. I’ll ip through channels to see if I can nd a dog in an advertisement to “motivate” her and it usually works. The thought of sharing doesn’t t well with her canine instincts. Apparently, that’s so with humans, as well. I’ve seen kindergarten children being chided by a teacher to share toys or share their cookies; they never seem to be overjoyed at the prospect of parting with something for the bene t of another. Adults also do not seem to look at sharing as an opportunity to help for the most part. This is a learned act of charity that does not seem to be ours just from our natural instincts. Nevertheless, the human instinct to be compassionate when we see someone who is hurting or defenseless has moved all of us from time to time. It’s harder when people are not in our presence, unknown to us personally, or maybe even thought to be unworthy of our help. My ministry is an attempt to be “wise as serpents and innocent as doves” when it comes to using the resources entrusted to me to share. There is a call to be a “cheerful giver” – God loves them (2 Corinthians 9:7) and that we should give something we decide on giving without reluctance or compulsion (ibid). A more drastic account is reported in Acts 4 and 5: Things were going well for the “believers” and they shared what they had; nobody claiming possessions for their own (Acts 4:32ff). Then there were no needy persons among them (v.34), but all did not live happily ever after. One couple, Ananias and his wife Sapphira sold a piece of land but decided to keep some of the money for themselves (Acts 5:1ff). Historians report that this kind of sharing was practiced for a short time and this kind of “communistic” system only in limited places. What seemed to be the problem was not the “holding back,” but the deceit. Ananias might have said “We’re saving for our children’s education” or “We’re putting aside something for our old age,” followed by “...but here’s the rest.” But they did not; apparently, being able to share more but saying to themselves “too bad for the needy!” The message: “Share what you have to share, but don’t be greedy or deceitful about it.” Somewhere between Robin Hood (who stole -that’s right, stole -from the rich and distributed) and Ananias and Sapphira, comes a message of sharing; being a joyful giver. After all, sharing means you do keep something for yourself too. The question is “How much?” and the answer is “Let your conscience be your guide.” Now, every once and awhile, my dog will bring me one of her puppy biscuits. She doesn’t have to do that; it’s an act of pure charity on her part. Apparently, she doesn’t recognize that I don’t need any more food, or that I may not really want it. I pretend to eat it, then give it back. Affection and sharing are closely linked -I’m grateful at that moment that I’m not one of the dogs on TV or I’d be out of luck. At any rate, she has shown me something about sharing what I have. If she can do it, so can I. So can we all. Religion ColumnPuppy Biscuits, Robin Hood, Ananias and Sapphira SAMUEL S. THOMAS

It doesn’t have to be this way, say experts. The numbers are staggering, as 65 percent of student loan borrowers misunderstand or are surprised by aspects of their student loans, according to studies. And student loans account are the most common form of increasing debt among ages 18-24, with 60 percent of students graduating with an average of $24,572.45 in student loan debt. Students are not being taught enough nancial responsibility, say experts at Lexington Law, a leading provider of consumer credit correction services. Only four states require a class in nancial education. As such, many educators are urging greater nancial education requirements. In the meantime, there are things students can do to avoid getting buried under debt. A recent survey revealed that one in three graduates would have pursued one of the following, if they could do it all again: scholarships, nancial aid, start saving earlier, pursue higher paying major, and working while in college.

BY MICKIE ANDERSON IFAS NewsFloridians have negative feelings about undocumented immigrants, but an overwhelming majority favor policy that would allow such immigrants a path to U.S. citizenship, a new University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences survey suggests. The survey of 507 Floridians found that although many see undocumented immigrants as threats to their economic well-being and personal safety, they still had “pockets” of sympathetic views toward those trying to establish themselves as U.S. residents, said Tracy Irani, director of the UF/IFAS Center for Public Issues Education, or PIE Center, the research group that led the study. “They de nitely have some concerns and some less favorable perceptions about undocumented immigrants, but despite that, still, the majority feels positively about there being some pathway toward citizenship for undocumented immigrants,” Irani said. “To me, that’s the big takeaway.” Jack Payne, UF’s senior vice president for agriculture and natural resources, said the immigration survey results point out precisely why the university must take a leading role in studying immigration and educating the public about the pros and cons of immigration reform. “To solve an issue, you must understand that issue,” Payne said. “Immigration is a critical issue for Floridians – it’s affecting agriculture, which is a key economic driver in our state, it affects our public schools, and our health care system … we can’t separate ourselves from it.” Irani said the study found signi cant knowledge gaps about current and pending immigration policy. Among those gaps, many respondents knew that undocumented immigrants often work in agriculture or outdoor industries, such as construction or roo ng, but only six percent of respondents knew that many work in the hospitality industry. About 58 percent of respondents did not know that babies born in the U.S. to undocumented immigrants are automatically granted U.S. citizenship. And more than half of the survey’s respondents were unaware of the E-Verify system being considered as a mandatory check to see if potential employees are authorized to work in the United States, she said. 73 percent of survey respondents said they believe undocumented immigrants are a burden on the economy more than an asset, and 58 percent of respondents agreed with the statement “undocumented immigrants reduce the number of good jobs for Americans.” Despite those negative feelings, 85 percent said the government should either allow undocumented immigrants to remain in the U.S. and eventually become citizens or require them to leave and return and become citizens only if they meet speci c requirements. Only 15 percent said they would prefer the government to force undocumented immigrants out of the U.S. permanently. The survey showed that 44 percent of respondents reported knowing someone who came to the U.S. in the last 10 years, either documented or undocumented. 39 percent of those said they consider that person a friend. Survey respondents were asked to assign levels of importance to a number of topics, and immigration was not among their chief concerns. Only 70 percent of respondents reported it as extremely or highly important, dead last behind the economy, health care, water, the federal budget de cit, housing, K-12 education and higher education. The survey respondents were selected as a demographically representative sample of adult Florida residents. This is the second of four surveys PIE Center of cials hope to conduct every year to track public sentiment over time. Besides immigration, the other topics include water, endangered species, and perceptions about organic and non-organic foods and agricultural practices used to grow them.

Keeping horses and pets comfortable is important. Know where they feel safe and check to be sure your elds and stalls are free from hazard. If necessary, contact your veterinarian and inquire about giving horses or pets a sedative to help keep them from hurting themselves. Take the time to check all fence lines and door latches to insure pets cannot get loose. Fireworks can result in severe burns, scars and dis gurement that can last a lifetime, for that reason “ reworks are illegal to use without a permit.” Some of the illegal reworks prohibited for normal resale are as follows: Common Bottle Rockets Firecrackers (Rolls) Standard Fireworks M80’s with Mortar M80’s Projectile Fireworks Launchable Rockets with Stands (The above listed items are only a few samples commonly purchased by people that are prohibited for sale.) WARNINGYou should not sign “waivers” in order to purchase reworks. A “waiver” will not clear you of responsibility should you be caught using illegal reworks. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce will be enforcing the use of illegal reworks. Using reworks illegally is a rst degree misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and a $1,000 ne. If you are using “legal” sparklers, novelties and trick noisemakers there is still a risk of injury. When lit, some sparklers can reach temperatures between 1,300 and 1,800 degrees, which are at least 200 degrees hotter than standard butane lighter. Follow these precautions to celebrate safely: Use sparklers and other “legal” novelties on a at, hard surface. Do not light them on grass. Use sparklers in an open area. Keep children and pets at least 30 feet away from all ignited reworks. Also keep in mind that livestock such as horses, cows, etc. can also be frightened by reworks. Light only one item at a time and never attempt to re-light a dud. Don’t purchase or use any unwrapped items or items that may have been tampered with. Keep a re extinguisher or water hose on hand for emergencies. Remember: “if it launches or explodes, it is off limits.” Reminder during extreme drought there is a heightened chance of res.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 27, 2013 BY TOM NORDLIE IFAS NewsDogs are notorious for eating just about anything, and the nastier, the better -which is why a University of Florida expert is advising canine owners to keep an eye out for poisonous mushrooms as summer approaches. One particularly common species is known scienti cally as Chlorophyllum molybdites and often called the false parasol, said mycologist Matthew E. Smith, an assistant professor with UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. The large, light-colored fungus grows in grassy areas, such as lawns, throughout the Eastern United States and in California. "Mushrooms can grow very quickly, so it's important to be observant," Smith said. "If you have a puppy or a dog, you should check the yard before you let the dog out, or supervise it when it goes outside." Though poisoning cases are rare, the false parasol causes intense gastrointestinal distress in people and may be deadly to dogs and horses. Puppies and adult dogs that like to chew are especially at risk for ingesting the fungus. The false parasol is easy to spot against a grassy background. White or tan, it has a domed or at cap and a thick stem; at maturity it may be several inches tall. Colonies often grow in circles, called "fairy rings." Smith suggests that animal owners learn to identify the species, check their property often and destroy the mushrooms if they appear where animals might eat them. When a veterinarian suspects mushroom poisoning, Smith is sometimes called upon to identify any fungus fragments that have been recovered. It's not an easy or pleasant task, but Smith said he's glad when he can give owners helpful information. He's been involved in 10 to 15 cases of suspected mushroom poisoning in dogs since arriving at UF about 18 months ago. Photographs can aid identi cation, he said, especially if they show intact specimens and the area where the fungus grew. False parasols are responsible for more human poisonings than any other U.S. mushroom species, but they are seldom cited in animal poisonings, said Michael Beug, a professor emeritus with The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash., and a noted mushroom expert. Hard statistics on dog poisoning cases are kept by the North American Mycological Society, and their records from 1980 to the present include just three cases with the false parasol. However, Beug noted that when he hears about a case of mushroom poisoning in an animal from Florida, it invariably involves the false parasol. "C. molybdites can be pretty devastating," Beug said. "Especially if it's eaten raw, which is the way dogs eat them." There's generally not much that veterinarians can do for af icted dogs except provide intravenous uids and palliative care to reduce distress and discomfort. Fido isn't the only animal potentially in danger: Livestock are at risk, too. Grazing animals such as horses may consume wild mushrooms accidentally as they browse on grass and other forages. Horses suspected of consuming false parasols should receive immediate veterinary care. Smith's overall advice: Discourage dogs from investigating wild mushrooms. "And don't let your dog eat any mushrooms, even supermarket ones," he said. Keep Pets, Livestock Away from False Parasol Mushrooms PHOTO/ TYLER L. JONESPictured above is expert Matthew E.

There were over 3,400 FFA members present from all across the state. Glades Day FFA members were recognized on stage for chartering a new Middle School FFA Chapter and for having 100 percent membership in both FFA chapters. Savannah Zipperer competed in the state prepared public speaking event. Her speech discussed the effects inheritance tax has on family farms. Savannah did an exceptional job delivering her speech and we are very proud to have a member place so high in the state the rst year as a chartered chapter. While at the convention, members attended leadership sessions that helped develop students' leadership potential and shared ideas with other successful chapters in that state. Our chapters also seated voting delegates who attended business sessions that handled matters such as setting FFA due and state of cer election rules; the delegates also represented the chapter by voting on state and district of cers. The convention provided the opportunity for our members to expand our horizons by networking with other chapters and cooperatively setting goals that will bene t our members and chapters. Our chapters were honored to be voted into the Peace Ridge Federation, a group of chapters that work together to enhance student competitions and leadership skills. The extra level of competition will help prepare our members for the of cial FFA contest held each year. After being inspired by state of cers and multiple leadership seminars, our members are excited to start the new school year with fresh ideas and motivation to work even harder to achieve greater accomplishments. We would like to express special appreciation to our chaperones, Jennifer Redish, Chelsa Hilliard, and Kathrine Zipperer.

Pahokee Housing Authority (PHA) in partnership with city of Pahokee, Bridges at Pahokee, Jewels of Pahokee, and United Health Care, held its second annual Fatherhood Initiative, which is part of a U.S. Department of Housing Urban Development (HUD) Initiative. A full week of events took place in Pahokee to re-engage absent fathers with their families and to acknowledge fathers that are involved in the lives of their children. The fathers made amazing and unique cupcakes with their kids. They also participated in a shing tournament and enjoyed a luncheon. The grand nale of the week of events was the Fatherhood Initiative Family Fun day and Daddy n' me Gala, both held on Saturday, June 15. The families enjoyed health and wellness, family involvement and education activities. The Home Depot donated Kid's Workshop Kits and kids used their creativity painting wooden trucks, bird feeders, message boards, and house banks. Bridges at Pahokee allowed the fathers and their kids to join their hand prints on a frame to remind the fathers to continue being a "Handson Dad". PHA's special guest for the event was Doctor Health E. Hound from United Health Care. Florida Community Health Center, Florida Health Department, Comprehensive AIDS Program, Palm Beach County School District/HEART Program, Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies, Alzheimer's Community Care, and the Library and Sam's Club provided information on the services they provide in the community. To seal the day, Jewels of Pahokee paid a tribute to the fathers during the Daddy n' me Gala. The fathers in the community had an opportunity to enjoy a lovely evening with their "little princesses." Juan and Janya Martinez were the winning couple of the Father-Daughter wobble contest. The 2013 Fatherhood Initiative was a week that many of the kids in the community will not forget. This event would not have been possible without the support from the community sponsors, such as Lake Okeechobee Rural Health Network, MCM paints, United Health Care, Savea-Lot, James Lee Foundation, and many more. Special thanks to Miami HUD for their encouragement and technical support.

This year, Rotary District 6930 -which stretches along Florida’s Atlantic Gold, Treasure, and Space coasts, and west to Okeechobee and the Glades from Titusville to Boca Raton from north to south -held its annual District conference at the Boca Raton Resort and Spa June 6 through 8. Every year, Rotary International announces a new theme and this year’s theme was “Peace through Service,” announced by Rotary International President Sakuji Tanaka. He stated, “Our reward is not nancial, but the happiness and satisfaction of seeing a better, more peaceful world, one that we have achieved through our own efforts.” On Saturday, during the Diamonds Are Forever Gala, the Pahokee Rotary Club was presented with this year’s Rotary World Peace District Award. Dr. Wesley Boughner, Peace Project Chair, presented the Rotary World Peace District Award to Pahokee Rotary Club for a successful peace-related project during the 2012-2013 year, which promoted “Peace through Service,” and was deserving of the recognition, he said. The Peace Project initiated by the Pahokee Rotary Club was a Health Fair in conjunction with Walden University’s Global Day. Walden University’s goal was to dedicate one day of the year for the Walden community to work alongside each other in neighborhoods across the nation. Those efforts have grown to include cities around the world. On Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012, as part of Walden’s seventh annual Global Day of Service, Pahokee Rotary Club contacted Walden University to be one of the communities to participate in Global Day. Ms. Elizabeth “Liz” Cayson, President of the Pahokee Rotary Club and doctoral student at Walden University, spearheaded the health fair event. The Pahokee Rotary Club, along with Palm Beach Fire Rescue, Florida Community Health Center, Health Care District of Palm Beach County, Pahokee Chamber of Commerce, City of Pahokee, and volunteer students from Pahokee High School provided free blood pressure screenings, diabetes testing, information on Health Care District health coverage and information on nutrition and many health related topics. Highlights of the event were featured on Walden University’s website, which can be accessed internationally. Mrs. Cayson, Pahokee Rotary Club President and Community Relations Specialist for the Health Care District, was present at the ceremony and joyful to receive the award. Ms. Cayson was surprised by the recognition. “I have enjoyed servings as president of the Pahokee Rotary Club, but the members of the club made this project possible and our community partners. Our club plans to continue these efforts by providing these types of projects that will impact social change for improving the health and well-being of the Glades communities and residents of Palm Beach County,” said Ms. Cayson Only one other Rotary Club received this award in the entire District.

The city hopes to have other festivities available to the residents. “For the rst time last year, we had vendors, a bake off and barbecue contests,” said Mr. Moore. “We are trying to organize the vendors for this year, but have been unable to because we were unsure about whether we would be able to raise the reworks money.” Mr. Moore explains that he is working with Wayne Gray, operator of the marina, and Regina Bohlen of the Chamber of Commerce to try to nd vendors for the event. “If we do have vendors, we will start around 4 p.m. and end the night with the reworks,” he said. “We would also like to thank Bishop Mickens of Pahokee Church of God, Father John of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Lynette Christian of First Apostolic Assembly of Jesus Christ Inc., and local business owners Emilio Perez and Richard Keen for their generous donations,” said Mr. Moore.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry Glades AudubonEastern Screech-Owls are common east of the Rockies in woods, suburbs, and parks, particularly near water where there is a fairly open understory. They breed from southern Canada to central Mexico and in the eastern United States to the Florida Keys. Nesting usually occurs from March through May, but edglings were reported in June, July, November and December during the rst Breeding Bird Atlas Survey (1987). An Eastern Screech-Owl is a short, stocky bird about the size of a pint jar, with a large head, yellow eyes, and almost no neck. An adult is an inch shorter and has an inch less wingspread than a Burrowing Owl. This Screech-Owl can be gray or mostly reddishbrown, but the red and brown morphs are more common in Florida. These birds are patterned with complex bands and spots that provide excellent camou age against tree bark. Males are smaller and more agile yers and hunters than the females. Eastern Screech-Owls are more often heard than seen. Both males and females sing, with the most common sound being an even-pitched trill that is often called a "bounce song" or tremolo; and a shrill descending whinny. Pairs and families use the three to six second long "bounce song" to keep in touch. Mated pairs may sing to each other day or night, but the male has a deeper voice than the female. The one-half to two second whinny is used to defend territories. These owls have many calls which range from soft low hoots to loud sharp screeches, which indicate alarm or agitation. They also make a three to four note chuckle or rattle when they are being mobbed by other birds. Eastern ScreechOwls are most active at night, but they often hunt at dawn or dusk, and occasionally in daylight. These small owls tend to pounce from perches or make short ights to capture their prey. Their diet consists mainly of bats, sh, tadpoles, invertebrates, birds, small birds, and mammals, including rats, mice, squirrels, and rabbits. They will cache extra food in tree holes for as long as four days. The ground below the owl's roost is often littered with oval pellets made up of bones, fur, and feathers of their prey. This owl species nests in hole and cavities that they never dig themselves. They depend on tree holes opened or enlarged by woodpeckers, rot, fungus, or squirrels. Eastern Screech-Owls readily accept nest boxes and sometimes nest in woodpiles, crates, or mailboxes. The female lays two to four all-white eggs on the debris at the bottom of the nesting cavity. She incubates the eggs for 26 days. When nesting, the female stays in the hole except for brief dawn and dusk excursions. The male brings his mate and the young food. The young edge when they are about 26 to 30 days old, but the parents continue to feed the young for eight to 10 weeks after edging.
