A verdict was reached in a case that seemed to galvanize the Glades communities, as a jury found Corey Graham, 20, guilty in the murder of Jimmy McMillan. The verdict was handed down at the Palm Beach County Courthouse last Thursday, August 15, providing some closure for the community in this closely watched case. The crime had been noted both for its senselessness and the outpouring of support for the victim’s family that resulted. In a show of solidarity, citizens from all sides of the racial spectrum marched together in condemnation of the murder. Jimmy McMillan, 49, was well-liked in the community. His involvement in a modest grocery store operating out of the predominately black section of Belle Glade, and his constant support of his customers -– he was known to extend credit to people with little money -– was well-known. News of his murder after a failed robbery attempt at the store in early January 2012 drew outcries from every corner of the city, leading up to the suspect’s identi cation and arrest. The harbored feelings and resentments came to a head last week at the courthouse in West Palm Beach. After the jury made the announcement of Graham’s guilt, and with sentencing being considered, a urry of verbal volleys ew across the courtroom, with the family of McMillan and the suspect himself sharing an exchange of insults. Connie Deaton, whose knees shook with nervousness and anger on a cold January morning as she pleaded for help in solving her brother’s murder, last Thursday seemed aroused with anger. “I hope you rot in hell!” she yelled to Graham. The courtroom erupted in activity, with Graham ring back at Deaton. Deputies cleared the courtroom and the judge rescheduled the sentencing. Graham will receive his sentencing in early September. With the rst degree murder conviction, however, Graham will spend the rest of his life in prison with no chance of parole.

From high blood pressure to cancer, serious ailments often strike, despite efforts to maintain good health. With the rapid pace of medical advancements and treatment options emerging, conventional medical wisdom can sometimes lag behind innovations in disease management. Furthermore, there’s often little attention paid to nutrition’s role in health conditions. “Our healthcare system is a disease model, not a prevention model, and reimbursement is based upon sickness, not wellness. We need to better integrate all facets of care,” says Dr. Steven V. Joyal, chief medical of cer with Life Extension, Inc., an organization dedicated to increasing the functional human lifespan. It’s this thinking that spurred the creation of Life Extension’s 2014 edition of the Disease Prevention and Treatment Book, which seeks to ll those gaps. From cancer to multiple sclerosis, the book offers 1,400 pages of information on integrating pharmaceutical treatment options, nutritional support and lifestyle changes for optimal health. For example, high blood pressure: A major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure and kidney disease, high blood pressure threatens the life of every third American adult. Intensive lifestyle changes can ease blood pressure management. When this isn’t enough, pharmaceutical options can help. For example, blood pressure is best controlled with lower doses of multiple antihypertensive medications rather than a single large dose of medication. Furthermore, side effects can be greatly reduced. “Many patients are lulled into a false sense of security by normal blood pressure readings at their periodic doctor’s visits. But quite frequently, patients experience gaps in control, putting them at risk for stroke and heart attack,” says Joyal. Joyal recommends considering the following: With an inexpensive at-home blood pressure monitor, take readings at multiple times throughout the day, tracking values over time. A doctor can determine whether to modify the current treatment regimen based upon the results. Stay t and exercise. A healthy body weight and high degree of cardiorespiratory tness reduce hypertension risk, and can help one achieve better control if one is already suffering from hypertension. Hold the salt. High sodium intake can make high blood pressure worse. Read labels. Even if one is not adding extra salt to meals, many prepackaged convenience foods, meats and cheeses contain signi cant amounts of sodium. Get plenty of bene cial nutrients, especially potassium and magnesium, which are important for vascular health. Rheumatoid Arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis could pose more than just a risk to comfort. Systemic in ammation hastens the onset of other age-related diseases, including cardiovascular disease. “For optimal longevity, we need to integrate lifestyle changes with pharmaceutical treatments, rather than blindly assume that all a patient needs is more medication,” says Joyal. In addition to doctor-prescribed treatments, Life Extension researchers have scoured medical literature, nding several nutrients that help support health in rheumatoid arthritis patients: sh oil, krill oil blend, Gamma linolenic acid, vitamin D, vitamin B6, green tea extract, quercetin, and folate. By taking advantage of new ndings in medicine and science, optimal health may be better achieved. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 florida.newszap.com Check out these new features: • Daily Local News Updates • New interactive and easy to navigate format • Plus much, much more!Come see for yourself! 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 22, 2013 New Health Findings Can Help Combat Common Ailments PHOTO/ COURTESY: LIFE EXTENSION BY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchI have noted the proliferation of honori c titles people like today, one of the most common being “doctor.” One medical professional is lobbying to have the title restricted to medical doctors (this came as no surprise to me!) and was reminiscent of years gone by when the “doctor” was involved in healing of people and given respect in his community. Nowadays, there are scads of “doctors.” It’s interesting to me to look at how the title is sometimes conferred. Certain religious institutions offer doctoral degrees for a few summers of home reading and a rather lengthy “term paper.” “Schools” offer them with varying degrees (no pun intended) of rigor and they seem to have an appeal to some who simply must have that title. For me, it came after three and a half years of full-time study and earning two Master’s degrees, one from a secular university and one from a seminary. My school was accredited (many are not accredited) by the U.S. Department of Education and regional accrediting agencies. My work was in one of the healing arts -an adjunctive skill to my ministry. In Jesus’ day, “Rabbi” was a title of dignity and given to designate those specially revered. Jesus cautioned His followers that there was an equality among them, that they were to follow the one Master and Teacher (Matthew 23:10). He even took exception when a ruler called Him “Good teacher ...” (Luke 18:18), not being concerned about being called “teacher” or “rabbi” but “good.” God alone was designated as “good,” Jesus’ teaching came with a sense of place and humility. He was revered by the ruler because of what He did and taught, not because of titles. I regard it as unfortunate that we do not hold “teacher” in the same esteem as it once was held: an honorable profession worthy of being respected with the same dignity as that of all true professionals. Many of them have levels of education equivalent to those in the healing arts and have much to offer to those they serve. I was behind a teacher recently at a check-out counter. She was stocking up on school supplies -crayons and pencils, notebooks and book-bags. There were too many items to have been a purchase of her own children; it was obvious to me that she was a teacher. I told her, “I hope they appreciate it!” and watched as a three-digit total was rung up. She smiled and commented that she was trying to take advantage of the tax rebate that comes annually for school items. Her purchase was sizeable enough to make this rebate worth seeking on a teacher’s salary. I knew I was in the presence of a professional, one worthy of being called “teacher” in the fullest meaning of the term. I have shared in their ranks, teaching at a Church school, at the college level, in ministerial training programs and in ministry for many years. The work of being a pastor is teaching on many levels; much of the work is on a one-toone level and involves sharing between two persons with the hope that the seeker may bene t from a fellow searcher. One of my mentors, a college professor who entered the ministry later in life, shared some Greek etymology, Education, he said, comes from Greek, meaning “to bring out,” and has to do with being able to draw out of us what was already inside, making us realize what we knew all of the time. “Education” is putting it into words, asking the right questions, pointing out what was there, making us realize for ourselves ... and being that genius who can do it. Education in faith is nding what lls that God-sized hole in a heart and showing us who lls it. The rabbi is the one who did it. Those who bring out the best in us, who we really are, deserve our respect and honor. Their presence, dedication and love for their work is an honor that no title can bring.

Task Force, narcotics agent, and executive of cer of the violent crimes division are some of the roles he has lled throughout his career. In addition to his duties as a law enforcement of cer, Capt. Wallace instructs Gang Investigation, Advanced Gang Investigation, and Gang Prosecution courses throughout the country. He has a Master's Degree from Palm Beach Atlantic University, a Bachelor's Degree from Barry University in Miami Shores, and attended Southern Police Institute Command Of cers Development Course. Capt. Wallace is no stranger to the Glades community; he was a patrol sergeant in the late 1990s and has been involved in most of the violent crime investigations -including gang related crimes -in the Glades for the last ve years. Lt. Patrick Woodward, executive of cer of operations for the Glades area, speaks highly of Capt. Wallace and the wealth of experience he has to offer the Glades' residents. "Captain Wallace comes from the violent crimes division where he headed up the gang unit for several years with outstanding results, then moved to the homicide unit where he was the Lieutenant in homicide and the executive of cer for all violent crimes units," he said. Lt. Woodward explains that Capt. Wallace possesses many of the same qualities as his predecessor. "He has a can-do attitude', a great sense of humor, and like Capt. Grimes is very approachable," he said. "But I have never known him to shy away from the tough decisions. I have no doubt that once he gets settled in, he will be just as involved in the activities out here in the Glades as Captain Grimes." Captain Grimes also considers Captain Wallace a perfect t for the Glades. "He is experienced, friendly, and committed," she said. "This is a recipe for success, so expect continued success between law enforcement and the community." For his part, Captain Wallace explained that there is not a plan of action for the Glades area at the moment. "My main goal right now is to get out, meet the residents, introduce myself," he said. "I want to be a resource for the Glades and I am honored to be here in the Glades as the commander of patrol operations. PBSO is dedicated to providing quality service to everyone in the Glades." CommanderContinued From Page 1 The city of Belle Glade has released the long awaited list of roads to be repaired with newly secured funding. Months back, Commissioner Michael Martin and Vice Mayor Mary Wilkerson traveled to Tallahassee to petition the state for funds to repair the city's streets. City of cials competed with other cities in Palm Beach County for the state's attention to matters important to their respective cities. Commissioner Martin said, "This is the most important trip that a city of cial can take to request funds that the city desperately needs." Belle Glade received $1 million of the requested $12 million of state and federal funds. The efforts are not only part of the city's beauti cation plan but are also desperately needed, of cials said. Many of Belle Glade's roads are in such disrepair that some neighborhoods have large potholes while others have bumps that look like small hills. The city worked with the Florida Department of Transportation to determine which roads needed the most attention and how much each road would require in funding. East Canal Street North between Main Street and Southeast Seventh Street North is the rst road on the city's prioritized list; the road is expected to cost almost $72,000. Northeast Third Street between East Canal Street North and Northeast Avenue H will cost the most to repair with a price tag of more than $76,000 and is planned to be the second road to be repaired. Other roads include Southwest Second Street, Northwest First Street, Southeast Ninth Street, Fleming Drive, Sara Road, and Vaughn Circle. Florida Senator Joseph Abruzzo played a key role in Belle Glade's request for funding being granted. He is also working with city of cials to help Belle Glade with other projects. Mayor Steve Wilson expressed his gratitude to Senator Abruzzo. "I wish to extend special appreciation and recognition to our State Legislators, especially Senator Abruzzo, and county representatives for making this vital project a reality," he said. "I would also like to recognize the Belle Glade City Commission, our city manager, Lomax Harrelle, and staff for their dedicated efforts and perseverance. Without everyone's untiring efforts this project would have remained a dream," he said. "I'd also like to acknowledge the value of our citizens input in this project, as they assisted the city in determining and prioritizing the roads that were in dire need of repair. I feel extremely blessed, as this project will not only beautify our city, it will enhance the safety of our residents and visitors, and bring about much needed jobs." 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A ugust 22, 2013 Michael Wallace Belle Glade is Awarded $1 Million for Street Repair

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 22, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry Glades AudubonCommon Grackles breed in most areas in North America east of the Rocky Mountains and south of the tundra. Of the three subspecies of this bird, the one known as the Florida Grackle (Q.q. guiscual) lives year-round from Southeastern North Carolina south through Florida. The existing subspecies of Common Grackle are distinguished by the color of their back, tail, belly and, to a lesser extent, their head. Florida Grackles appear to be black from a distance, but normally have a greenish-black back, blue-green tail, purple head and purpleblue belly. These large, lanky birds are smaller than Boat-tailed Grackles. Their head is at and they have a slightly downward-curved bill that is longer than those of most blackbirds. Males are slightly larger than females. Young birds are dark brown with a dark eye that turns bright gold when they become adults. The oldest recorded Common Grackle lived to be 22 years and 11 months old. Common Grackle fossils, which have been found from Florida to Ontario, have been dated to the Pleistocene Era 12,000 years ago. These noisy, gregarious birds communicate with body motions, as well as sounds. Males will make a threatening bill-up display, which consists of an upward movement of the head so the bill is almost vertical, or they will spread their tail feathers into a keeled "V" shape accompanied by exaggerated apping of the wings in response to another male. Common Grackles songs include a variety of squeaks, whistles and croaks. The typical song of males and females is a guttural "readle-eak," followed by high-pitched clear whistles. They make a short harsh "chaa" or "chitip" call when alarmed, taking ight or being approached by other grackles. Males' singing decreases through incubation, but they will make a short nasal call while perching in the nesting colony. These birds prefer habitats near fresh water in cypress swamps, pine forests, hammocks, orange groves and suburban areas. Large ocks are often seen foraging on lawns for seeds or in feedlots and on agricultural elds for grains such as corn or rice. They also eat invertebrates and mice, wade into water to catch small sh, rob eggs from birds' nests and eat adult birds. Migrating Common Grackles return to their nesting ground from mid-February through early March, with males arriving about a week before the females. In Florida, egg laying may begin as early as March or as late as July. Females usually choose the nest site and build the nest with occasional help from the male. The bulky nest is built in trees, cattails, bushes, broken stubs, old woodpecker holes and, occasionally, the underside of an active Osprey nest. It is located about two feet above ground or water and is made of course grasses, pine needles, roots, twigs, roots and mud. The female lays one to seven slightly glossy eggs, which she incubates for 10 to 14 days while the male remains closeby, guarding the nest from predators. Both parents feed the helpless young by forcing food into the hatching mouths. The young edge at 16 to 20 days of age.

The public has reported hundreds of sightings of Florida panthers to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) website. The website was launched a year ago and is a place for people to record when and where they saw a panther or its tracks. As of August 2013, the public had submitted 790 sightings to MyFWC.com/PantherSightings. Only 12 percent of the reports included a photograph and could be evaluated by Commission biologists. Of those with photos, the majority were con rmed as panthers. Other animals identi ed by FWC biologists were bobcats, foxes, coyotes, dogs, house cats and even a monkey. Most often, the reported animal or tracks belonged to a bobcat, not a panther. The veri ed panther reports were largely con ned to Southwest Florida, the well-documented breeding range for panthers in the state. There were also several veri ed sightings in South-Central Florida. "The public's willingness to share what they have seen or collected on game cameras is incredibly helpful and shows us where panthers presumably are roaming in Florida," said Darrell Land, who heads the FWC's panther team. "We thank everyone using the Report Florida Panther Sightings website and encourage others to participate in this citizen-science venture. "As the population of this endangered species grows, the FWC expects more Florida panthers to be seen in areas of the state where they have not lived for decades," Land said. "To properly plan and manage for the expansion of the panther's range in Florida, information about where the panthers are is vital." The FWC has a new "E-Z guide to identify panther tracks," available at www.FloridaPantherNet.org. The Florida panther population is estimated to be 100 to 160 adults and yearlings, a gure that does not include panther kittens. As recently as the 1970s, the Florida panther was close to disappearing, with as few as 20 animals in the wild. Learn more about Florida panthers at www.FloridaPantherNet.org.

Across the country, parents are beginning to notice that today’s classroom looks quite different from the classroom they experienced in their own school days. From personalized learning technologies to new educational standards, teachers and administrators are using a variety of tools to ensure students are better prepared to succeed than ever before. In this era of innovation in education, this school year will be particularly exciting, in part because states will be piloting assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards, the new set of K-12 educational standards designed to improve students’ readiness for college and future careers. So just what do these changes mean for kids? Shift to New Standards Schools nationwide are nding new ways to provide individually tailored lesson plans while addressing the Common Core State Standards, often relying on a new generation of educational technologies that help students learn and succeed at their own pace. “Even before the advent of the Common Core, we knew that preparing students for the demands of college and careers required setting a solid foundation in skills such as reading comprehension and writing,” said Christine Willig, senior vice president of products at McGraw-Hill School Education. “When the new standards reiterated the importance of these skills, we saw an opportunity to build an entirely new program that would address the Common Core requirements, by leveraging contemporary cognitive science about how we learn, using cutting-edge digital tools.” Personalized Learning Education research has shown that instruction becomes more effective when tailored to students’ unique learning styles and needs. Personalized learning tends to lead to deeper learning -which will help students meet many of the new Common Core standards. As classrooms continue to get bigger, however, delivering that sort of individual attention to students becomes more dif cult. With this in mind, educational software have been built using entirely new educational technologies, offering interconnected platforms personalized for students and teachers and accessible across any device. Other digital learning tools use additional techniques to help students succeed, including using “adaptive” technology to continually assess students’ knowledge, skill and con dence levels, and to create a unique study path designed to help each student in the topics and concepts they need most -a level of personalization previously only available from a personal tutor. In this ever-evolving educational landscape, keeping up with the changes can seem daunting -but it needn’t be. Parents can rest assured that teachers are increasingly equipped with new technologies that ensure their students are getting the personalized attention they need to improve their chances for long-term success. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Best Vision Exam is the answer to your eye health and your wallet. Call us today for details on back to school specials 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A ugust 22, 2013 The Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades counties continue to raise awareness about Naegleria fowleri in light of the recent conrmed case. There is a standard process that the Department of Health follows for all diseases, regardless of the disease. That process involves interviewing the family to ask about possible exposure sources. The Department of Health is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the CDC provided the testing that con rmed the case in Glades County. The exact water source of exposure cannot be exactly identi ed because the amoeba occurs naturally in warm freshwater sources such as rivers, lakes, ponds, canals and ditches. Because the amoeba is found in most freshwater sources, and because of the inconsistency in test results, the CDC does not recommend speci c testing of freshwater sources. For informational research, the CDC does collect information such as water temperatures, water depths, water clarity and air temperatures in the surrounding areas of where a case has been conrmed. The low number of infections makes it dif cult to know why a few people have been infected compared to the millions of other people that used the same or similar waters across the U.S. There were local news reports questioning exposure risks from water sprinklers. According to the CDC, there are no reports of infections from this route of exposure in the U.S. and it would be very unlikely that this activity could lead to infection. If the sprinklers are using canal water, there would be a slightly higher risk, but it would still be very unlikely to contract the disease, since people would not generally force that water up their nose. The organism is most commonly found in warm freshwater (lakes, rivers, ponds, canals and ditches). It should be removed in treated tap water that uses ltration and disinfection and would not be expected to be found in groundwater from private wells (the water is cooler than ideal for Naegleria growth and there would not be abundant bacteria for Naegleria to feed on). Ways to reduce your risk of infection: Limit the amount of water going up your nose. Hold your nose shut, use nose clips or keep your head above water when taking part in warm freshwater-related activities. Avoid water-related activities in warm freshwater during periods of high water temperature and low water levels. Avoid digging in or stirring up the sediment while taking part in water-related activities in shallow, warm freshwater areas.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A ugust 22, 2013 PIONEER PARK ELEMENTARYEvery school has its own unique personality, just like every neighborhood, just like every child. Sometimes, we focus on details or zoom in on missing gaps and need a little guidance in seeing the “big picture.” Principal Mary Ford, after treating her staff to a delicious, down-home style breakfast (thank you, Ms. Vera Canty and staff!), preliminary greetings and general back-to-school housekeeping, had a surprise for her faculty. Dr. Matthew Shoemaker, area superintendent, arrived just in time for Ms. Ford’s enthusiastic announcement, “The bus is here, we’re going on a eld trip!” Ms. Cleola Pringle good-naturedly served as tour-guide while teachers traveled by yellow school bus through neighborhoods in Pioneer Park’s attendance zone. “This is the trailer park! This is Okeechobee Center! We are now entering Glades Glen, but some of the kids still call it Palm Glades!” exclaimed an excited Ms. Pringle. There was light chatter, eyes out the window. It was early, there were no children in yards, streets or sidewalks; still, if you listened closely enough, you might just hear it ... the echoes of the past, traces of the present and hints of the not-so-distant future. There -if you caught it -was the plastic, weighted on the rooftop of a trailer, apping in the breeze, a bitter reminder of the utter devastation of the hurricanes that swept our area eight years ago. Many Sugar Bears returned to school while living in shelters, grateful for the clothes, shoes, toys, books and furnishings donated toward starting over. They were excited to nally return to some semblance of normalcy, which Pioneer Park then represented, and were joyous to have survived with their families intact. As one little kindergartner exclaimed, braids bouncing jauntily, “We don’t have a house no more! But, I’m still alive!” Perhaps you remember, Pioneer Park rose like a phoenix to an ‘A’ following the hurricane. Maybe you saw a bike suddenly left on its side by the side of the road, and recalled an innocent childhood outing that ended abruptly and led to sirens and the chop of helicopter wings. This image whispered of a tragic drive-by shooting of an older sibling, the broken family touched by the outpouring of love when the teachers presented classmates’ cards of caring, compassion and support, the mother deeply moved by the communal embrace in her time of deepest need. Or did you see the pretty little garden lovingly tended by the Grandmother, struggling to hold her family together, grateful for the house-call that brought her Grandchild home to her immaculate living room? Maybe you heard the echoes of gratitude and hospitality she lavished and the rapt attention given while discussing her precious Grandchild. Oh, yes, there, in the abandoned window, the diva poster, a trace of the present, a hint of the future, the girl with stars in her eyes, the teachers who encouraged her gift, the after-school singing and dancing lessons, the tears in the eyes of staff and families when she sang in the spring, touching hearts a nal time before moving on. Finally, that Internet Cafe sign, hinting at the learning games and technology expertise carried over into the home-life, the future blogger changing tomorrow’s world with his dreams inspired during a lesson when maybe he was acting out and we didn’t even know he was listening. This eld trip offered a tiny glimpse into the missing puzzle pieces linking our students and families so indelibly with Pioneer Park. Back at the school, after analyzing our data, Ms. Ford pointed out that “research shows, when kids set goals, are shown positivity, are motivated and encouraged, it will help them move!” She introduced the Sugar Bear mentoring program, rolling out for 2014, and explained that every available staff member will serve as a mentor to students. “If our school treasurer, Ms. Beavers, can teach math, she will be paired to mentor a student needing support in math skills!” explained Ms. Ford, adding that effective mentors build supportive relationships with students. Ms. Ford pointed to the four corners of the media center with the numbers one through four prominently displayed. She explained that when students are performing below grade-level expectations, there is often a series of blaming. Teachers can blame last year’s teacher, parents and home life, the student’s learning capacity and behavior, or teachers (themselves), when scores fall below desired levels. Ms. Ford said, “Here’s the scenario, as an ineffective teacher’s thinking, choose a corner where you most place blame for low scores.” She next invited a representative from each corner to express their reasoning. Dramatic comments ooded the open forum. “See those teachers over there?” said Ms. Ford. “They didn’t teach a thing last year, they just didn’t care! How am I supposed to make up an entire missed grade level? What am I supposed to do when parents won’t enforce homework? Do you expect me to undo six years of lax home disciplinary attitudes? How can I possibly teach when they ll them up with candy and soda every morning and won’t put them to bed at night? Who can teach him when he won’t look or sit still? She won’t listen, she’s too busy playing or talking! I always get the kids who act up all the time, how am I supposed to teach?” The next scenario invited “effective” teachers to choose a corner. While the majority of teachers moved to number four, the “teacher” or “personal responsibility” corner, some remained in opposing spots, playing devil’s advocate. Ms. Ford then asked for spokespersons to expound on their views and convince others to change. Some speakers then persuaded others to join their group. However, Ms. Shalanda O’Neal, math coach, eloquently explained, “The factors of former teachers, home life, parents and student abilities are variables beyond our control! We have to combine the only constant we have, ourselves, with student learning, and we must take that equation and run with it!” She further stated, “We have to realize that we are given this amazing opportunity to positively impact and make a difference in a student’s life!” Ms. Ford agreed, “We can’t change a student’s former circumstances. We are starting with right now! We have the tools, teachers have the knowledge and our students have the ability! Use what you have!” Ms. Ford stressed the pain an uncaring, ineffective teacher can in ict. “A mean teacher inspired me to become a teacher!” She also explained that each teacher has a “bag of tricks” they go into when handling student discipline. She invited suggestions and wrote those behavior management tips on an anchor chart as they were called out. She asked, “Can you choose one of these that works all the time?” No one answered. “The reason no one answered is because nothing works all the time!” said Ms. Ford. Teachers agreed that every student and every situation is unique. Ms. Ford asked, “Are these effective strategies?” while writing “screaming, “sarcasm,” “belittling and embarrassing,” and “arguing” on a board. “Arguing. Why is arguing ineffective? Because the student is in front of peers, he must save face and has to win! You are the adult, I expect you to act like it! So everyone agrees these don’t work?” asked Ms. Ford. Everyone agreed. “Good! Then I will never see these behaviors exhibited by my teachers!” Ms. Ford forcefully spoke these words with a determined look and strode across the platform to a rapt silent audience. She next asked groups to discuss, and then answer on anchor charts, three questions: How do you see our school? How do families view us? How do outsiders view us? When the group captains brought their anchor charts together, it was truly amazing to see the cohesiveness in answers. Most said they saw our school as unique and caring, they felt the parents saw us as supportive and giving and most felt outsiders viewed us as poor and underachieving. Ms. Ford nally asked, “Now, among your group, choose one word describing how you want everyone to view us by the end of this brand new school year!” Each group chose the word “achievers” or a synonym thereof. “I’m glad you originally chose the word unique,” said Ms. Ford. “Our school and students are unique, their needs are unique and so are our teachers. We are going to join these special qualities with our mentoring program, our knowledge of and belief in our kids and our goals for being ‘achievers.’ By the end of this year, that word will be the banner for our school!” With this tting together of the visionary puzzle, our leader sent us forth to impact student learning in school year 2014. Fitting the Puzzle participant is a Silver Gloves Champ and one female participant is winning in her category. The crime prevention program is part of a non-pro t corporation that seeks to build a positive relationship between youth, law enforcement and the community, using sports and other recreational activities. Deputy LeStrange explained that PAL is not just another program. “PAL is based on the conviction that young people -if they are reached early enough -can develop strong positive attitudes towards police of cers in their journey through life toward the goal of maturity and good citizenship,” he said. Participants are supervised by and interact with of cers who reinforce the positive values and attitudes instilled in them by their parents. “Studies have shown that if a young person respects a police of cer on the ball eld, gym or classroom, the youth will likely come to respect the laws that police of cers enforce,” said Deputy LeStrange. ”Such respect is bene cial to the youth, the police of cer, the neighborhood and the business community.” According to Deputy LeStrange, the relationship between sports and juvenile delinquency has been the subject of much discussion. Experts agree that sports can serve as an effective and powerful solution to delinquency. “The idea that sport serves as a deterrent to delinquency was rst espoused in the English public schools during the nineteenth century,” he said. “Sport was used as a substitute for stealing, bullying and drinking that dominated the leisure hours of the English students.” Deputy LeStrange explains that youth sports programs have contributed signi cantly to the reduction of delinquency and instills certain desirable educational, social and personal values that prevent the occurrence of delinquency. “PAL is a most effective tool in this effort,” he said. Anyone who is interested in signing up for the PAL program in Pahokee can contact Deputy Michael LeStrange at 561.254.7773 for more information. For those interested in PAL program in Belle Glade, please contact Deputy Johnny Jackson at 561.329.8280. BoxingContinued From Page 1 The Board of Palm Beach County Commissioners and its Department of Environmental Resources Management (ERM) are pleased to announce a new natural and arti cial reef map, available online and as a Smartphone app. Since its inception in 1987, ERM has deployed arti cial reefs using materials such as ships, concrete and lime rock boulders. With assistance from the Palm Beach County Reef Research Team citizen divers, ERM staff regularly monitors these reefs. Global Positioning System (GPS) is an integral component of this monitoring because it allows divers to locate and navigate the reefs that need to be surveyed. Once divers have located the reef, they use Geographic Information System (GIS) tools to analyze the GPS locations, allowing them to draw relationships between sh populations and a particular reef location. In order to draw attention to the importance of arti cial reefs and to help recreational divers and sportsmen locate them, ERM created a webbased and Smartphone map that draws the reef location data in real-time from its survey database. Map users can view important information such as GPS coordinates and reef depth. In addition, the Smartphone app will also show the user’s location, which can be bene cial when navigating to a reef. The maps were created using existing county resources and Environmental Systems Research Institute’s (ESRI) ArcGIS online and Smartphone app. View the online web-based reef map at www.pbcgov.com/erm/coastal/reef/artificialreefmap/ For instructions on how to download the ESRI ArcGIS Smartphone app and view the reef map, visit www.pbcgov.com/erm/mobile-maps/ New Web and Smartphone Reef Map

Knight Foundation Fund, of the Community Foundation. The funding will allow the Friends of the Library System to design and develop a digital media lab and recording studio at the Main Library. The project, which will be completed in early 2014, will provide a space for residents to learn how to use the equipment for sound mixing, video sharing and podcasting for free. Staff will be trained to provide weekly orientations and topic-based workshops. An online site will be developed to showcase content created in the CreationStation. A CreationStation blog will be developed to share the process with other libraries and community organizations. “We’re very excited that, thanks to the generosity of the Community Foundation, the Library will offer a place where community members can, at no cost, increase their digital literacy, create local content and have a platform to share their knowledge with the community. CreationStation will take the technology training that we’re currently offering to a new level by offering training that will enhance patrons’ job skills, as well as their personal ful llment,” said Elizabeth Locke, the electronics resources coordinator for the Palm Beach County Library System.
