BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunWitnesses say Andrew L. Patterson seemed to take the joke well – an off-color comment about his swollen eye. Minutes later, according to information released by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce, Patterson would return with a semi-automatic handgun and shoot the jokester in the face. The shooting happened on Tuesday, June 18, at approximately 6:15 p.m. in Belle Glade. Patterson had run into his haranguer, Kenel Joseph, 19, of Belle Glade, and did not seem the least bit upset when Joseph made derogatory comments about him. Patterson simply asked him to stop, and a few minutes later, when the group had disbursed, all seemed well. Two witnesses were with Joseph as the group made its way south on Southwest 12th Street. They saw Patterson approaching them at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The suspect asked the two witnesses for money. Patterson then reportedly walked back over to Joseph, speaking to him in a hostile manner. Witnesses say the two men were no more than a foot apart as they stood talking. That’s when, according to the witnesses, Patterson allegedly pulled out a gun, pointed it at Joseph’s face and shot him point-blank. Afraid that Patterson would try to nish him off, Joseph tried to run away. Those suspicions proved correct, with Patterson apparently chasing Joseph, shooting at him in the back multiple times. The two witnesses ran in an opposite direction, but managed to see Patterson on the chase for Joseph. Finally and perhaps miraculously, Joseph, who suffered injuries to his back, the right side of his face, his chest, right ankle and genitals, found refuge at the Lake Shore Civic Center, where an employee there let him in and locked the doors to keep anyone from coming in or leaving until deputies arrived. Bleeding and waiting for emergency crews to arrive to transport him BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunIt has been a heart-wrenching week for the family of a Pahokee woman who went missing in late June. There has been very few leads for investigators to pursue in nding the woman – who some family members fear is now dead. The case has gripped the community of Pahokee, which has learned of some disturbing details leading up to the disappearance of the young mother. One of those is the murder of Crystal Anderson, 57, who according to published reports was the missing woman’s babysitter. Anderson’s name and address was found on a restraining order that Deborah Jessie, 23, had led against her ex-boyfriend, Jammy Washington, just days before her disappearance. Jessie had asked the courts to prevent Washington from ever visiting this location. So far, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce has not said whether the two cases, both the disappearance and the murder, are connected. Washington was arrested on a previous case involving the missing woman. Washington has not been charged with any crimes related to the disappearance of the woman, or for that matter, the murder of her babysitter. If you have any information about the disappearance of Deborah Jessie, you are urged to contact Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458TIPS. You may remain anonymous. BY AMANDA RAMOS-GUY e SunMilton Carpenter, who has served as the City of Belle Glade’s insurance consultant for more than 50 years, and commercial insurance underwriter, Marbelis DeLeon of Milton Carpenter Insurance, presented the commission and city staff with an award for Public Risk Management’s “Most Improved Safety Performance” at Monday night’s commission meeting. The trophy was the only one given to municipalities in the classi cation of mid-sized towns by Public Risk Management, the property and casualty insurance carrier. Mr. Carpenter commended the commissioners and other city leaders on their most successful efforts to protect employees from workplace accidents. Lomax Harrelle, city manager for Belle Glade, and Vivian Hunter, director of human resources, were especially recognized by Mr. Carpenter, in addition to all the department heads and employees involved in the city’s monthly safety committee meetings. Mr. Carpenter credited the city’s diligence in taking steps to ensure employees have a drug-free work environment. The city also presents employees, based on a drawing, with a safety bonus each month to help increase the incentive to maintain a safe working environment, thereby reducing worker’s compensation claims. Mr. Carpenter cited the commission for the amount of money that has been saved for the taxpayers. “This program and the drug-free workplace agreement have resulted in a savings of $40,000 of our hard earned taxpayer dollars, just in the past year,” said Mr. Carpenter as he presented the trophy to Mayor Steve Wilson and the city commissioners. As a personal recognition for a job well done, Mr. Carpenter also presented each commissioner, the human resource director, and city manager with his newly release autobiography. ”We were honored to receive the award on behalf of the employees of the city of Belle Glade,” said CommisPBSO: A ttempted Murder Suspect Couldn’t Take a Simple JokeSuspect shoots victim in the face after comment about his swollen eye PBSO Continues its Search for Missing Pahokee WomanEx-Boyfriend of vanished woman arrested but not charged in disappearance, or death of woman’s babysitter City of Belle Glade is Presented with Safety Performance Award T J V.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 4, 2013 BY TOM NORDLIE IFAS NewsIf mosquitoes were motorcycles, the species known as Psorophora ciliata would be a HarleyDavidson -big, bold, made in America and likely to be abundant in Florida this summer. Just how abundant is a matter of speculation, but University of Florida Entomologist Phil Kaufman says last year the state had a bumper crop of the huge, biting insects, which are sometimes called gallinippers. He said there may be a repeat on the way. “I wouldn’t be surprised, given the numbers we saw last year,” said Kaufman, an associate professor with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. “When we hit the rainy cycle we may see that again.” The gallinipper is a oodwater mosquito, with females laying eggs in soil at the edges of ponds, streams and other water bodies that over ow when heavy rains come. The eggs can remain dry and dormant for years, until high waters cause them to hatch, Kaufman said. Last June, Tropical Storm Debbie caused ooding in many parts of Florida and unleashed large numbers of gallinippers, along with other oodwater mosquitoes. To help residents understand the species better, Kaufman and UF/IFAS entomology graduate student Ephraim Ragasa created a document on gallinippers for the department’s “Featured Creatures” website. It’s now available on Electronic Data Information Source, at http://edis.ifas.u edu/in967. Native to the entire eastern half of North America, the insect has a body about half an inch long, with a black-and-white color pattern that makes it resemble a super-sized version of the invasive Asian tiger mosquito. As with other biting mosquitoes, only the female gallinippers are blood feeders; males survive on ower nectar. The species is notoriously aggressive and has a painful bite. “The bite really hurts, I can attest to that,” Kaufman said. Even in the larval stage, gallinippers are fearsome. Most mosquito larvae are content to subsist on decaying plant matter oating in the waters where they develop, but gallinippers are omnivorous, devouring other mosquito larvae and even tadpoles. With that trait in mind, observers have suggested the gallinipper might be a good candidate for biological control efforts, using the larvae to reduce populations of other pest mosquitoes. But that strategy has a fatal aw, Ragasa says -it results in more gallinippers. “That kind of defeats the purpose of using them for biocontrol,” he said. Gallinippers can be warded off with repellents containing DEET, though Kaufman said that due to their large size they may be more tolerant of the compound than smaller biting mosquitoes. Other precautions include wearing long pants and long-sleeved shirts when venturing into wooded areas, especially places where standing water collects after rain storms. There are a few good things one can say about this mosquito: It isn’t considered a signi cant vector of mosquito-borne illness affecting people or animals. And human activity doesn’t seem to boost its populations. “This isn’t one where you build a subdivision and start to see more,” Kaufman said. “If anything, there may be fewer of them now than there were in the past.” Aggressive Mosquito may be Abundant This Year PHOTO/ MARISOL AMADOREntomologist Phil Kaufman shows the size difference between an invasive Asian tiger mosquito (right) and the native species Psorophora ciliata, sometimes called the gallinipper.

Gas Price UpdateAverage retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 5.6 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.43/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has fallen 5.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.50/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 26.5 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 1.2 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 13.6 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 12.9 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “After an impressive surge abated several weeks ago, we’re seeing gasoline prices decline nicely,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “One-inve states currently has at least one gas station with gasoline under $3/gallon: South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Ohio, Texas, New Mexico, Virginia, Indiana, and Michigan all have at least one station statewide under $3. The national average is likely to continue its decline this week as retail prices catch up to the decrease in wholesale gasoline prices,” DeHaan said. BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry Glades AudubonThe Red-tailed Hawk is probably the most common hawk found throughout North America. They breed throughout most of Canada, the United States, and Mexico. In Florida, nesting begins in February and extends through June. Florida’s largest breeding hawk is also known as the Buzzard Hawk or Red Hawk. These large hawks have very broad, rounded wings and are slightly larger than Red-shouldered Hawks and smaller than an Osprey. Their short, wide tail is usually pale below and cinnamon-red above, though in young birds the tail is brown and banded. The oldest recorded Red-tailed Hawk lived to be 28 years and 10 months old. The adult’s hoarse, screaming “kee-eeeeearr,” which usually lasts two to three seconds, is often used for movie soundtracks whenever a hawk or eagle species appears on the screen. During courtship, these birds make a shrill “chwik,” sometimes giving several of these calls in a row. The Red-tailed Hawk is often found soaring above open elds, perched on telephone poles, fenceposts or trees, or standing alone along edges of elds. In high winds, they may hover without apping, their eyes xed on the ground in search of prey. Their diet consists mainly of small mammals, including mice, rabbits and ground squirrels. They also eat birds, snakes and carrion, which can weigh anywhere from less than an ounce to more than ve pounds. Red-tailed Hawks have been seen hunting in pairs, with each bird observed on the opposite side of the same tree while trying to catch squirrels. These sharp-taloned birds will aggressively defend their nests or territories. They are known for chasing off other hawks, eagles, and Great Horned Owls. They attack with their legs outstretched while making a slow controlled dive. Courting birds will y with their legs hanging beneath them or chase and swoop after each other, while sometimes locking talons. The mated pair stays together until one dies. Nests are usually built in the crown of tall trees where the mated pair can view the surrounding landscape. In Florida, they sometimes nest in cypress tree islands, Australian pines, billboard platforms, or power poles. The pair will either build a new nest or refurbish their previous year’s nest. The bulky nest of dry sticks is up to 6.5 feet high and three feet across. It is completed in four to seven days and lined with bark strips, dry vegetation and fresh foliage. The female lays one to three white eggs, which are sometimes marked with brown, in the nest. These eggs are incubated for 32 to 34 days, with the young edging when they are 43 to 47 days old.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 4, 2013 BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchOur nation is 237 years old this year, and we have the freedom, among other things, to poke fun at ourselves and our country! America, you’ve got to love it! We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from arti cial avors and furniture polish is made from real lemons. We leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our junk in the garage. We make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions, while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front. A pizza gets to our house faster than an ambulance, and people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a Diet Coke. 237 years of existence to develop such freedoms seems like a lot of time, but compared to other nations, we are just a child. And yet we stand tall among these countries because of the principles on which we were established: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” (Declaration of Independence). I still believe in the USA. Something still happens to me when I see people waving ags and I hear patriotic songs being sung. Call me optimistic, but I still believe in one nation under God. In God I still trust. And I still celebrate the Fourth of July and anticipate reworks as part of that celebration. I want to tell you that I still anticipate reworks out of my faith, as well. Did you know there is approximately the same amount of gunpowder in a recracker as in a ri e shell? The recracker’s explosion power is unfocused, and makes a loud noise. The ri e shell, on the other hand, focuses that power in a speci c direction and delivers an enormous punch. One makes a lot of noise. The other gets results. It’s a matter of focus. It’s a matter of what’s needed or what’s desired. We can be a recracker Christian or a ri eshot Christian. One makes a lot of noise. The other gets results. The third option is to be a reworks Christian. Fireworks begin by focusing power to get them to a desired location and then explode in all kinds of ways to catch people’s attention and amaze them in all kinds of wonderful ways. There is too much to be done here in our corner of God’s world for us to quit taking risks and stepping out on faith. Our calling is to go forth into the world with the authority we receive from God and make explosive things happen. You see, I still anticipate reworks. I still anticipate miracles. I still anticipate excitement and enthusiasm, healing, and conversion. I expect reworks to happen every time God calls us and sends us out. I expect my faith and my church to make a difference in my world. And I want you to expect it, too! I believe the colonists trusted and depended on God when they made and adopted the Declaration of Independence. Because of their trust, God blessed us as a nation. I believe that if we remember to trust and depend on God today, God will use us to make reworks happen; and again, God will bless us as a nation. Religion ColumnAmerica, You’ve Got to Love It COURTESY PHOTO Are you taking good enough care of your eyes? According to a new study, your gender and where you live may indicate if you are practicing good eye health. Women go to eye doctors 28 percent more than men, according to the 2013 Eye Health Index released by VSP Vision Care, the largest not-for-pro t vision bene ts and services company in the country. Analysis showed that women, who are statistically at greater risk for eye-related diseases, make a more concerted effort to care for their eyes. The research also concluded that Boise City, Idaho is the top city where residents took good care of their eyes in 2012. Boise City had the highest rate of eye exams compared to any other city on the index for the past two years. Other cities ranking in the top 10 eye-healthy cities are Sacramento, Oklahoma City-Tulsa, Wichita, Columbus (Ohio), Des Moines, Birmingham, Denver, Raleigh, and the San Francisco Bay Area. More details about the new study, along with eye care tips, can be found at www.vspblog.com/healthyeyes. In addition to identifying vision correction needs, eye doctors are often rst to detect signs of serious health conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

BY THE AMERICAN COUNSELING ASSOCIATIONTeasing may often seem like a normal part of childhood. Most parents have had to comfort a teary-eyed child who has been the victim of a teasing episode at school. It’s just what adolescents do, right? While schools are working harder to combat schoolyard violence and bullying, too often teasing is dismissed as something minor and commonplace that doesn’t do much harm. However, the reality is that teasing can have painful and long-lasting effects. Studies have found that children who are repeatedly teased may end up suffering from depression, anxiety and sleep problems. They are more likely to avoid school, and in severe cases can suffer from serious emotional and psychological issues. Parents often try to encourage their son or daughter to pay no attention to being teased, repeating that old adage, “Sticks and stone may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.” Or they may be dismissive, telling the child to tough it out, saying that being teased just builds character. Such advice, however, doesn’t really help and may just convince the child that mom and dad really don’t understand how painful it is to be teased. Sometimes, that can lead to the child withdrawing and not sharing experiences. Instead, experts advise letting your child know that what has upset him or her is just as serious a problem to you. Listen sympathetically to what happened and try and see the problem from your child’s point of view. Don’t be critical or disapprove of how your child handled the incident. He or she is already feeling picked upon and hurt. Be supportive, showing you understand why the teasing was upsetting. You might share stories, real or hypothetical, of your teasing experiences. Your child should understand it is perfectly normal to be upset by teasing. Children can also learn how to handle or stop teasing. There are several books on the subject. Your child’s school counselor can also help. The idea is not to report the teaser, since that will seldom stop the problem, but rather to get the counselor to help your child learn techniques to stop the teasing. A local professional counselor specializing in family and child counseling is another place to turn for assistance. To adults, teasing may seem a minor issue, but for a child facing repeated taunting, harassment and ridicule, this is a problem that can have serious, negative effects on his or her life. Teasing is Not to be Ignored 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

LOWEST PRICE EVERYDAY! Obituaries 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 4, 2013 It has been said that sometimes you have to tear it down before you can build it up. That’s exactly what is happening as part of the Glades Demolition Program. Palm Beach County, through the departments of Economic Sustainability, Risk Management, and Facilities Development & Operations, has partnered with the cities of Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay to demolish approximately 70 vacated and unsafe structures and remove them from Glades neighborhoods. The project is being funded by $1 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Neighborhood Stabilization Program 3 and Community Development Block Grant programs. Project activity includes structural demolitions, abatement of asbestos where needed, and removal of debris. The purpose of the program is to remove abandoned structures that negatively impact neighborhoods and can become havens for unlawful activity. One of the goals of the project is to encourage redevelopment and reinvestment in the communities. City of cials have prioritized speci c properties to be addressed and are working with county staff to clear them away. Belle Glade City Manager Lomax Harrelle expressed appreciation for the county’s partnership in the venture. “Several nuisance structures located throughout the city have been demolished and many others are in the pipeline to be taken down in the very near future,” he said. “Palm Beach County has been excellent to work with and we value the county’s commitment to assisting Belle Glade and the greater Glades area.” Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce deputies for the western communities see the program as helpful in achieving their community policing efforts by cleaning up areas that attract and conceal the criminal element. “The elimination of these unsafe structures will enable the Glades to move forward toward a safer community by stopping the spread of crime that buildings such as these can produce,” said PBSO Lt. Edward Luty. “In observance of the community policing philosophy, we believe that maintaining and monitoring urban environments in a well-ordered condition may stop further vandalism and escalation into more serious crime.” Glades Tackling Vacant, Blighted Structures with County’s Help SUBMITTED PHOTOSPictured is an abandoned house on SE 3rd Street in Belle Glade before and after demolition, one of approximately 70 structures targeted.

On the grounds of the National Mall, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued its annual report of deaths and injuries involving legal and illegal reworks for 2012. Fireworks can have a life-altering impact on consumers, including severe eye injuries, loss of limbs and even death. CPSC works closely with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP); the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Fireworks and Explosives; the Department of Transportation; and the Department of Justice to enforce federal safety standards and raise awareness about the dangers of reworks. Last year, CPSC received reports of six men who were killed by professional-grade, homemade or banned rework devices. In addition, an estimated 8,700 consumers were treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments for reworks-related injuries. Between June 22, 2012 and July 22, 2012, more than 5,000 consumers were treated in hospital emergency rooms due to reworksrelated injuries. Sixty percent of all reworks injuries occur during the 30 days surrounding the July Fourth holiday. More than half of these reported injuries involved burns to the hands, head and face. About 1,000 reported injuries involved sparklers and bottle rockets, reworks that are frequently and incorrectly considered safe for young children. Follow-up investigations of incidents showed that most injuries were associated with malfunctioning reworks or improper use. Malfunctioning reworks often resulted in unexpected ight paths and dangerous debris. Improper use included igniting reworks too close to someone, lighting reworks in one's hand and playing with lit or used reworks. Most victims recovered from their injuries or were expected to recover completely; however, several victims reported that their injuries might be long term. "These gures represent more than numbers; they represent the lives of real people who have been affected well beyond the Fourth of July," said CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum. "The federal government is working hard to keep the public safe by monitoring the ports, the marketplace and the transportation of reworks. Now we need consumers to do their part and celebrate safely." Working with CBP, CPSC conducts surveillance on imported reworks. During 2012, the agencies collected and tested shipments of imported reworks for compliance with the Federal Hazardous Substance Act (FHSA). About 30 percent of the tested products were found to be in violation of the law and were immediately stopped at the U.S. port. This import surveillance program strives to keep violative and dangerous reworks off of U.S. store shelves and roadside stands. "The solid partnership between CBP, CPSC and other agencies at the Import Safety Commercial Targeting and Analysis Center (CTAC) enables greater sharing of information and targeting to ensure the safety of imported reworks," said CBP Assistant Commissioner Allen Gina. "Interagency collaboration at the CTAC results in the identi cation and interdiction of potentially unsafe imported merchandise, including non-compliant reworks, and truly exempli es working together as one U.S. Government at the Border to protect American consumers." At the national level, CBP, CPSC and the Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) work side-by-side at the CTAC in Washington, DC to effectively combat the importation of illegal reworks. The CTAC provides a platform for the agencies to share data, analyze import trends and conduct joint risk-based targeting to identify reworks shipments that pose a safety risk. "Fireworks are explosives. Protecting the public means making sure that our safety regulations work when these explosives are being transported," said PHMSA Administrator Cynthia Quarterman. "As the federal law enforcement agency charged with enforcing federal explosives laws, ATF actively works with other federal agencies, such as CPSC, through its reworks enforcement program to protect the public from the dangers of illegal explosive devices," said ATF Acting Director B. Todd Jones. Consumers who decide to purchase legal reworks are urged to take these safety steps: Make sure the reworks you want to buy are legal in your area before buying or using them. Never allow young children to play with or ignite reworks, including sparklers. Parents may not realize that young children suffer injuries from sparklers. Sparklers burn at temperatures of about 2,000 degrees -hot enough to melt some metals. Always have an adult closely supervise reworks activities if older children are allowed to handle devices. Avoid buying reworks that are packaged in brown paper because this is often a sign that the reworks were made for professional displays and could pose a danger to consumers.

To maintain high water quality in the county’s water distribution system, the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department will temporarily modify the disinfection process used to treat drinking water. The county will use a somewhat stronger disinfection process to produce chlorine residual instead of a chloramine residual from July 15 to August 16. Hydrant ushing will also be increased as a preventive maintenance process. Customers served by the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department may notice a slight chlorine taste or odor in their tap water during this period. These temporary conditions will not cause adverse health effects. If you are especially sensitive to the taste or odor of chlorine, keep an open container of drinking water in your refrigerator for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate. Users of home dialysis machines, owners of tropical sh and managers of stores and restaurants with sh and shell sh holding tanks are advised to seek professional advice, as the method for removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chloramine residuals from tap water. This process will not affect utility customers in Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay. Should you need more information on this change in the water treatment process, please call the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department at (561) 740-4600, option #3. County: Flush Lines with Chlorine Glades Day FFA members were honored to meet Florida’s Agriculture Commissioner, Adam Putnam, while attending the Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce Breakfast on June 20. Commissioner Putnam spoke and addressed topics such as the quality and quantity of Florida’s water supply; securing a stable, reliable and diverse supply of energy; education and immigration; and how we must take on these challenges so that Florida can be a leader in the nation and in the global economy. Commissioner Putnam inspired our FFA members to stay positive about the future of Florida’s Agriculture. Our FFA members were impressed that he took the time to speak to them and pose for a photo. Commissioner Putnam sets a great example of leadership in Agriculture, he reinforces and stands for many of the same principles of the FFA organization. The breakfast was sponsored by Florida Crystals. The Glades Day FFA Chapters are very grateful for the invitation and opportunity to attend such a great event. The attending FFA members included Matt Hubbard, Gabby Tellechia, Lauren Weeks, Skyler Stamm, Shelby Connell, Hunter Abowd, Casey Connell, Kathrine Weeks, and Maddie Mills. Glades Day FFA Meet Comm.

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunDeputies faced a tense scene after responding to a call from a woman fearing for her life. As deputies shouted into the home and yelled failed instructions to the suspect to free the woman, the man seemed to ignore them while of cers worked frantically to gain entry, according to a report released by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of ce. The incident happened at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 30, in an apartment complex at the 100 block of Adams Place in Pahokee. The initial responding deputy described hearing yelling and screaming coming from inside one of the apartment units. Hurrying to the location, the deputy managed to witness the panicked victim attempt to exit the apartment before being snatched back into the apartment by the suspect. The suspect, Demetrious L. Walker, 22, reportedly slammed the door forcefully on the victim's leg as he tried to close the door behind them. He managed to latch the deadbolt, preventing the deputies who were ordering him to release the woman from entering. At this point, the woman was yelling for help, and shouting to the suspect to let her go. Deputies tried to kick the door in, but did not manage to gain entry. After some minutes, and with additional deputies called to the scene of the disturbance, the suspect opened the door. Holding him at gunpoint, the deputies ordered him to exit the apartment and managed to place the man under arrest. The victim would require medical attention. According to the report, the woman had suffered a broken tooth after being struck in the mouth deputies found the broken tooth on the couch of the residence. She also sustained a knee injury, which left her leg swollen. Walker faces multiple charges in connection to the incident, including resisting arrest, false imprisonment, and aggravated battery. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 4, 2013 ARREST REPORT This column lists arrests, not convictions, unless otherwise stated.

Arrest report BY THE AMERICAN COUNSELING ASSOCIATIONVirtually every parent has found that trying to communicate meaningfully with their teenager can frequently be an impossible, frustrating task. Such an experience can have parents wondering what is wrong with them, or with their teenager. The reality is that what they're experiencing isn't unique or unusual, but rather the result of issues almost all teens face. A main factor is that it isn't easy being a teenager in today's world. Not only are there the variety of unsettling biological, psychological and emotional changes that come with normal teen development, but today's teens face the added pressures of school grades, extracurricular activities, increased public visibility (thanks, Facebook), along with the anxiety of college or a career in the very near future. Teens tend to feel that their parents just aren't able to understand all the changes and pressures they're facing, in part because they don't understand much of it themselves. They want more freedom and the trust of their parents, but when they start sharing feelings of insecurity or uncertainty they fear their parents will see them as still immature and unready for the freedoms they desire. They also recognize they need their parents' love and respect in order to gain their freedom and so are usually willing only to share their strengths and positive achievements. While it's helpful to understand what is limiting open communication, the only real solution to improving parent-teen talks is to keep on trying. How you communicate matters, too. Being overly judgmental, saying "no" too quickly to requests for more freedom, or dismissing the teen's concerns, quickly shuts down communication. Instead, be understanding when mistakes are made and offer positive responses when good things happen. Be supportive and let your teen know that you understand and sympathize with issues he or she is facing. Why Talking With Your Teen is Dif cult

Lakeside Medical Center, the county’s only public safety-net hospital, graduated its rst class of Family Medicine Residents on June 25, just two years after its residency program began. The hospital, which is owned and operated by the Health Care District of Palm Beach County, was accredited in 2011 by the American Osteopathic Association to offer the program. It is one of the few family medicine residency programs in the country that trains doctors with a focus on serving the special health needs of rural areas. “This graduation of our rst three residents is a signi cant achievement for our rural hospital, the agricultural communities in the Glades and the entire county,” said Ronald J. Wiewora, MD, MPH, the Health Care District’s chief executive of cer and chief medical of cer. “By offering family medicine residents the opportunity to train here in this medically underserved region, we are improving the health of our residents today and well into the future.” More than 70 people attended the graduation of Nader Abdallah, DO, Midwestern University Chicago College of Osteopathic University; Tarah Freyman, DO, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Bradenton, Fla.; and Tricia Nielsen, DO, Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. In a moving ceremony that followed the commencement, the three graduates joined Nikerson Geneve, DO, Lakeside Medical Center’s Family Medicine Residency program director and director of medical education, in presenting ve incoming residents with their white doctor’s coats. The program is training a total of 14 residents in postgraduate years one, two and three. “When the program began, I told you, ‘To be a resident is challenging,’” said Dr. Geneve. “’What will make you rise above the rest and what will de ne you not just as physicians but as human beings, is how you handle these challenges. I’d like to call on each one of you to do your very best to learn medicine and practice compassion.’” The program’s partners include Nova Southeastern University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine, the Palm Beach County Health Department and Florida Community Health Centers. The Family Medicine Residency Program is funded by a grant from the State of Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration and support from the Palm Healthcare Foundation. “This is the realization of a dream that began when the Health Care District was created 25 years ago,” said Carol A. Roberts, Chair of the Health Care District Board of Commissioners. “I congratulate our three graduates and commend you for choosing our public hospital to advance your medical education.” “I wish our graduates much success as you move on with your careers and I thank you for making a positive impact on the health of this community,” added Brian R. Lohmann, secretary of the Health Care District Board. “I encourage those of you who are continuing with the Family Residency Program to consider the rewards of practicing medicine locally in the Glades as your future career path.” Lakeside Medical Center, a 70-bed, all-private room acute care hospital, serves as the primary clinical training site for the Family Medicine Residency Program. The program consists of a three-year curriculum that includes rotations in emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, general surgery, internal medicine, neonatology, community medicine and critical care. Last year, the graduating residents traveled on an international medical mission to an impoverished region in Haiti where they provided care to the underserved and medically needy. In his remarks, Thomas J. Leach, Hospital Administrator, praised the graduates for their service to the hospital, their outreach in the local community and their commitment to the rigorous training program. “The residents are not only here to learn from us, but they have become an integral part of this healthcare team and we have learned from their experiences,” said Mr. Leach. “Thank you for helping us to exceed our patients’ expectations every day.” “Like many rural areas, the Glades has signi cant economic challenges and health care disparities,” said James T. Howell, MD, MPH, assistant dean for Professional Relations, chair of the Dept. of Rural Medicine and professor of Public Health at Nova Southeastern University. “This program, in partnership with Nova Southeastern University, is helping to shape the future of rural family practice physicians at a time where there is a critical shortage of primary care physicians.” Also speaking at the event were Marie Florent-Carre, DO, MPH, Family Medicine preceptor, Lakeside Medical Center, and Donia Roberts, Esq., vice chair of the Glades Rural Area Support Board. Ms. Roberts surprised Dr. Geneve by presenting him with a framed proclamation of recognition from the Glades Rural Area Support Board. “In December 2012, Dr. Geneve led Lakeside Medical Center’s Family Medicine Residency Program through the American Osteopathic Association’s survey, which resulted in an impressive ve-year reaccreditation of the program,” Ms. Roberts said during her presentation. “Dr. Geneve has created a technologically advanced learning environment that provides opportunities for medical residents to improve the health of the community.” For more information about Lakeside Medical Center, visit www.lakesidemedical.org.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 16 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 4, 2013 Worthwhile event seeks to show children that ‘of cers are friends’BY AMANDA RAMOS-GUY e SunPalm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce hosted its annual children’s summer day camp last week. The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches conducted the camp for the children while PBSO provided transportation to and from the event. The camp, food, and transportation were provided at no charge to the parents. The camp not only gives children a safe place to spend a week of their summer but it also allows them to interact with deputies in a positive manner to learn that “Law Of cers are Your Friends”. Children were taught various lessons throughout the week using games and activities to demonstrate those lessons. “Respect self, respect others, respect environment, and respect adults and elders” is the camp’s motto and it was drilled into the children with each activity and game. PBSO provided various demonstrations for the children. The children met Sonic and Missile, which were greyhounds used to teach them the importance of not leaving animals locked in cars during the summer heat. They also were able to meet Bingo, one of PBSO’s canine of cers. He demonstrated how he attacks criminals for the children. The children had the opportunity to see PBSO’s mounted deputies and horses, Alibi and Lance. Palm Beach County Fire Rescue gave the children a tour of their re engine. Other activities included crafts, baseball, games, singing, and archery. Games like “Magic Carpet” taught the children the importance of working as a team to accomplish a common goal. Archery taught the children about angles and velocity—once they have pulled their bow back as far as it can go they must decrease the angle of their arrow by pointing it in the air to make it go farther and faster. Jonathan said his favorite part of the camp was singing and archery. “I shot my arrow through the black target and my favorite song was ‘My Name is Joe’,” he said. D’Lexia said she enjoyed the food and singing; her favorite song was “Boom Chicka Boom”. Sasha also enjoyed the food but her favorite part was singing, “I like ‘How Funky is Your Chicken’ song; it was really funny,” she said. Mason’s favorite part was meeting Bingo. “Bingo can smell bombs and his favorite toy teaches him to bite bad guys,” he said. The week ended with a graduation ceremony for the children. They were able to show their parents what they had learned throughout the week and perform some of their camp songs. The children painted very large cards for JD Patrick, Belle Glades’ Parks and Recreation Director, Lt. Edward Luty, Sgt. Richard Angelo, and Mayor Steve Wilson as a token of their appreciation for allowing them the opportunity to participate in the camp.
