Clewiston, Glades Day and Pahokee win home openers in Week OneBY NAJI TOBIAS Special to INI FloridaGlades Central came out at in its Aug. 30 season-opener against Dwyer. The Raiders, who suffered a 35-0 loss to the Panthers, were badly outplayed on offense, defense and special teams in the ballyhooed Week 1 matchup. Dwyer senior running back Alonzo Smith (16 carries, 122 yards, TD) sidestepped a host of Glades Central defenders en route to a 51-yard touchdown run with 8:55 left in the rst quarter, which put the Raiders in a 6-0 de cit. Later on in the rst half, Glades Central's special teams personnel failed to wrap up and tackle Dwyer senior athlete Shawun Lurry, who outran his opponents on a 50-yard punt return for a touchdown with 11:42 left in the second quarter. With Smith's 2-point conversion run, the Raiders were down 14-0. Glades Central's only real spark on offense came toward the end of the rst half, when junior quarterback/ kicker Giovanni Lugo led a spirited drive down the eld from the Raider 6-yard line. Lugo, who went 6-for-7 passing on the ensuing drive, completed two passes each to sophomore wide receiver Isaiah Johnson and junior wide receiver Devonte Owens to get Glades Central to Dwyer's 34-yard line.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 5, 2013 Crossword Puzzle With the 2013-14 school year underway, the Florida Department of Education reminds motorists throughout the state to practice safe driving around children and near school zones, and to be extra aware around school buses. The results of the 2013 National Stop Arm Violation Count show that more than 85,000 vehicles nationwide illegally passed stopped school buses on a single day. Florida was among 29 states participating in the survey conducted by school bus drivers, who recorded how many times motorists passed their buses while displaying the ashing red lights and stop arms. In Florida, bus drivers observed nearly 12,000 illegal passes while loading or unloading students. "School buses are one of the safest ways to transport students," said Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart. "Florida motorists can do their part to keep students safe by being aware of children and obeying traf c laws. The survey results are an important reminder for drivers to use caution in and around school zones." Special construction, passenger seating and crash protection keep children safe while on the school bus. Federal regulations require that each school bus undergo a stringent inspection of all mechanical and safety systems at least every 30 school days. Additionally, school bus drivers must meet rigorous training and quali cations before they can transport students. The following are safety tips to help keep children safe between home and school. For motorists: Be alert and watch for children at all times, especially near schools, bus stops, school buses and in school parking lots. Obey traf c laws and speed limits. Do not text or use a cell phone while driving. STOP when a school bus displays stop arms and the red lights are ashing. Watch for and obey signals from the school crossing guards. Observe lower speed limits in school zones and at crosswalks. For parents: Discuss with children safe behavior to observe while at school, the bus stop and when entering or exiting the school bus. For students: Wait for the bus to make a complete stop and for the driver to signal that it is safe to cross the road or board the bus. Do not try to pick something up if it falls by the bus; instead, tell the bus driver rst. Do not walk behind the school bus or run after the bus. Motorists Urged to Follow School Bus Safety LawsSurvey results show high number of drivers illegally passing stopped school buses The State Attorney's Of ce, 20th Judicial Circuit, announces a new partnership with CheckRighter to administer the recovery of funds through its Bad Check Diversion Unit. The service is provided through the company adventfs. com. The company offers a variety of educational programs for people who write bad checks and works towards recovering the funds for the victim. "Even with the technology of today and fewer people using traditional checks to pay for services, bad checks still present a signi cant problem to our business community. Through this partnership, we will continue our strong record of nancial recovery so that victims get their money back quickly." said Steve Russell, state attorney. Under Florida law, some people who write bad checks qualify for diversion. The State Attorney's Of ce, through its Bad Check Diversion Unit, maintains oversight and control of the process, but with the help of CheckRighter, the nancial recovery process moves more swiftly. Education speci cally targeted to the bad check writer reduces reoccurrences. Tens of thousands of dollars are recovered annually through the Bad Check Diversion Unit and the State Attorney's Of ce looks forward to additional continued success. Bad Check Diversion Unit

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 5, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonYellow-throated Warblers are a common but elusive bird that breeds in the lowland forests in the Southeast, Lower Midwest, and Middle Atlantic states. They are absent from the highest elevations of the Appalachian Mountains. It winters in the West Indies, Mexico, and Central America, as well as in Florida and along the coast of Georgia and South Carolina. This wood warbler is known as a bird of tall trees because it nests and usually forages high in the canopy of swamp and pine forests. Some are found year-round in Northern and Central Florida. These small songbirds have a yellow throat and chest with a gray back. Their black face has connecting stripes down the sides with a white eye stripe and white ear patch. Their bill is long, black, and sharply pointed. They have two white wingbars with a wingspan of about 8.3 inches. Adult females have ner streaking on their anks and more gray than black on the forehead than the males. Immature birds are similar to adult birds, but have duller makings. Yellow-throated Warblers have a cheerful, musical song that is a highpitched series of clear, slurred notes that descend slightly in pitch throughout the song. The volume of the song can be quite loud as they sing while perched high in treetops. Their call is a loud, sharp "chip". In South Florida, these birds are found in sand pine forests, pinelands mixed with cypress, or live oak trees. They often forage for insects and spiders by slowly creeping along tree branches, probing into the cracks, crevices, bundles of pine needles, and Spanish moss with their long bill. They will glean insects from leaves and catch insects in ight. They also forage at lower heights or on the ground if food sources are readily available. Their breeding range is dif cult to determine in Florida, but most con rmed breeding reports occur in North or Central Florida. These relatively solitary birds can be found in pairs, particularly during the mating season from April through June. They build their cup-shaped nest of grasses, bark, and stems in clumps of Spanish moss hanging 10 to 75 feet above the ground. This nest is lined with feathers and other soft items. The female lays three or four whitish eggs marked with reddish-brown and lavender, which are incubated for 12 to 13 days. She continues to care for the young until they edge in 10 to 12 days. The male may help occasionally with feeding the hatchlings. One or two broods are raised by a mated pair annually. Volunteers will be searching for Yellowthroated Warblers and other migratory bird species during the North American Migration Count at STA-5 and Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest on Saturday, September 21st. Teams meet at the Keri Fire Tower and STA5 Deer Fence Public Access Entrance at 7 a.m. For information about participating in the North American Migration Count or free trips to STA-5 (Stormwater Treatment Area 5) go to: www.hendrygladesaudubon.org or call Margaret England at 863-674-0695.

If you want to learn the answers to this and many other questions about invasive exotic reptiles and other animals in south Florida you are invited to attend a free program presented by reptile expert, Cheryl Millett. Hendry-Glades Audubon will host this event on Monday September 9 at 7 p.m. at the Cooperative Extension, Dallas Townsend Building 1085 Pratt Blvd. in LaBelle. Cheryl Millett is a Biologist at The Nature Conservancy and leads Python Patrol, the Central Florida Lygodium Strategy, and the Heartland CISMA. Python Patrol is a program to provide containment and early detection and rapid response of invasive exotic Burmese pythons, and other invasive species in south and central Florida, by training detectors to accurately identify and report them, training responders to safely capture them, and providing a hotline to link the two. The Central Florida Lygodium Strategy is a partnership to apply a regional approach to stopping the northern spread of Old World climbing fern on public and private lands. The Heartland CISMA is a partnership to regionally focus efforts to deal with invasive species. Cheryl also coordinated Jay Watch, a citizen science program monitoring the federally threatened Florida scrub-jay, which is now a project of Florida Audubon.

SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchThere is a route around my home to reset our clocks after a power failure. Years ago, I bought a mantle clock that wasn’t working and took it apart. I located the gear it needed, put it back together and it’s been keeping time ever since. I guess it’s about 100 years old now; wound weekly and chiming on the quarter hours. It got me working on other clocks, gathering up parts for a grandfather’s clock in our hall with weights that need to be pulled up once a week. The electric clocks don’t require rewinding; their needs are more erratic depending on the power supply to our home. There are two options for time-keeping in the household: regular rewinding or erratic re-setting after a sudden interruption. I make the weekly rounds, rewinding the four that need it and thinking about some others that I hope to get working one day in the future. Battery-operated ones fail on an erratic basis. I look at them and one day notice “that’s not the right time.” Then it’s off to the drawer where extra Acells are stored and search out one that will t to restore functioning again. No doubt, the lack of needed maintenance on the digital ones is easier; but then come those erratic failures. I’ve decided that these timepieces are like lots of areas of my life: some things require maintenance on a regular basis and others are subject to unannounced failures. I’d like to know my car will behave when I count on it to let me keep a schedule. I’d like to have an uneventful trip to the dentist. I rely on the news to keep me up to date on things that may affect us here at home. Then there are those unpredictable hurricanes, unanticipated price increases, unexpected interruptions in schedules that take priority, accidental breakage of an appliance after years of service; things impossible to schedule that somehow can be counted on to happen. The car gets preventive maintenance. I take care of my teeth. Appliances need replacement and I know I can live without some of them anyway. If I replace those back-up batteries in some of my clocks regularly, they’ll be keeping time even if the power goes out. Maybe there are some things that could be more regular after all. Our lessons on the calendar for this week came from the letter to the Hebrews: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today and forever (13:8).” In spite of all of the uncontrolled, random, unplanned-for interruptions in my life, there is that constant presence if I recognize Him. He is the one who turns out to be the stabilizing force when all seems to be going haywire. I’ve called upon Him when a loved one was about to die and didn’t; I needed His presence to carry me through those times. I’ve had things work out when there were some real possibilities that they might not. He directed me on the best course amidst all of my insecurities. He’s been around when I remember to plan ahead to avoid calamities down the road, and His presence has carried me through when I realize I didn’t do it all by myself. When times were tough, He sent the right people into my life and it made all of the difference. The Lord has been that sustaining presence when everything else seemed in turmoil. Now I know I can survive the power failure or the breakdown or the possibility of a hurricane. There He is – the same yesterday and today and forever. With that knowledge, that presence, I can keep a perspective. “Lord, there’s nothing that is going to happen today that we can’t get through together!” I try to remember that He is there during the routine moments, too. Clocks that operate with routine intervention or with help during erratic moments, they keep my time. God who is present during my regular moments and at erratic times, He keeps my life. Then, there’s that bonus-He never really fails! Religion ColumnThe Best-Laid Plans: Things Expected and Unexpected “In spite of all of the uncontrolled, random, unplanned-for interruptions in my life, there is that constant presence if I recognize Him. He is the one who turns out to be the stabilizing force when all seems to be going haywire.”— Samuel S. Thomas Healthiest Weight Florida was launched in January 2013 by the Florida Department of Health in response to Florida’s number one threat to public health -the challenge of weight. The initiative is gaining momentum and Florida now has the 12th healthiest weight in the nation, up from a previous rank of 19th. “With only 35 percent of Floridians at a healthy weight, we recognize the continuing urgency of our weight challenge,” said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. “Florida is making progress relative to other states, yet sustained effort is essential to bend the weight curve. The Healthiest Weight Florida initiative intends to secure a healthier future for Florida’s children, adults, families, businesses and communities.” The new ranking comes from the report F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future 2013, which was released by the Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). According to the report, Florida’s obesity rate for baby boomers is almost 31 percent, while the rate for seniors in Florida is just under 23 percent. The obesity rate among young adults (18to 25-year-olds) in Florida is nearly 15 percent. The Healthiest Weight Florida initiative focuses on collaboration across state agencies, local not-for-pro ts, private organizations and others to help people make more informed choices about healthy nutrition and physical activity. Through partnerships, the initiative promotes community-based strategies to improve school, workplace, food and beverage, physical activity and messaging environments. The F as in Fat report calls for the expansion of policies at every level to support healthy choices and for increased investment in prevention. The report acknowledges that, at current rates, the estimated ongoing costs to the healthcare system are unsustainable. On Florida’s current trend, the costs of care for four chronic diseases from obesity alone -diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and arthritis -are estimated to be $34 billion over the next 17 years.

Pioneer Park ElementaryFirst Week News We were so happy to see our returning and new Sugar Bears! Principal Ford and Cafeteria Manager Ms. Vera Canty and staff tweaked schedules to serve breakfast beginning at 7:15 a.m. Sugar Bears may arrive early and then attend a grade-level morning read-a-loud session, ensuring their day begins with a hearty breakfast and classic literature. Research shows that children exposed to read-alouds experience increased vocabulary, improved comprehension and deepened activation of prior knowledge. Read-alouds also develops students’ interpretation of context clues, while giving students opportunities in growing higher order depth-ofknowledge and text complexity skills. Media Specialist Raul Barajas kicked off the Reading Counts program which allows students to read a story of interest and take a computerized quiz to assess their comprehension. The Reading Counts program inspires students to focus during their reading and passing the quizzes increases reader con dence. Our Sugar Bear mentoring program is off to a great start. Mentors introduced themselves and made initial contact with their mentees during the rst week of school. Principal Ford announced the names of all Sugar Bears with summer birthdays during the morning announcements and called them to the of ce, where she gave each child a Happy Birthday pencil.

Raiders junior Jonathan Istache, who got Glades Central to Dwyer’s 10-yard line with just 6.8 seconds left. On the rst half’s next and nal play, Lugo heaved up a nice pass to senior wide receiver Ronquavion Tarver in the end zone. Unfortunately for Glades Central, Tarver’s pass was broken up by Dwyer’s Clint Stephens as time expired. The game got out of hand in the second half, as Dwyer junior quarterback Daniel Parr threw a screen pass to Stephens that resulted in an 80yard touchdown with 11:42 left in the third. Later in the quarter, Parr threw his second touchdown pass, this time to senior wideout Johnnie Dixon for a 10-yarder that gave Dwyer a 28-0 lead with 1:16 left. The game’s nal score came from Dwyer sophomore running back Cornelius Smith, who punched it in the end zone on a 15-yard run with 4:50 left in the fourth quarter. “We worked really hard to get this win,” Dixon said. “We needed to be focused in order to get the job done.” Glades Central head coach Roosevelt Blackmon obviously wasn’t pleased with how the game turned out for his team. “We have to focus more as a unit,” Blackmon said. “Other than that, I got to give my hat off to Dwyer. They played a great game from start to nish.” NOTES: Glades Central’s offense gained only 89 yards in its Week 1 loss to Dwyer. However, one good thing did come out of this game: Raiders senior cornerback Bernard Willingham held Dixon, a blue-chip college prospect, to zero catches. Clewiston 63, Jupiter Christian 12: Lenorris Gaines rushed for more than 150 yards and two touchdowns, while Derry West and Jarvarious Bradford added two more scores each to propel the Tigers (1-0) over the Eagles (0-1) in their Week 1 triumph at Cane Field Stadium. Glades Day 35, Oxbridge Academy 7: Jonathan Rodriguez had 22 carries for 130 yards and three touchdowns as he led the Gators (1-0) to a rousing victory over the Thunderwolves (0-1) in their Week 1 game at Schlecter Field. Pahokee 12, Suncoast 0: Mcarthur Burnett recorded 15 carries for 109 yards and all of the game’s points, in addition to an interception on defense, as he singlehandedly led the Blue Devils (1-0) to a Week 1 win over the Chargers (0-1) at Anquan Boldin Stadium.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 5, 2013 visits involved children, with 25 children attending the event. Misty Cash, Deputy Communication Director for SBCF, explains that in Florida alone over 64,000 children under the age of 18 have a parent that is incarcerated. As a result, the Sesame Workshop, the non-pro t educational organization behind Sesame Street, created this program to help the children living in this type of situation. The program is a bilingual initiative for families with children between the ages of three and eight. Florida is one of 10 states piloting the program. "We are really excited about this partnership with such a recognized and trusted organization like Sesame Street," said Department of Corrections Secretary Michael Crews. "Sesame Street understands how to communicate with children in ways they best understand, and having a loved one who is incarcerated is a sensitive and dif cult circumstance for a child. This tool not only helps children, it helps their loved one who is incarcerated by providing tips on parenting and reminding them that they can still be a good parent while incarcerated." Ms. Cash explains that the program helps inmates, their children, families, and caregivers to cope with the realities of incarceration. "The program is designed to support, comfort, and reduce anxiety, sadness, and confusion that young children may experience during the incarceration of a parent," she said. Caregivers learn age-appropriate ways to help explain to the children about incarceration. Incarcerated parents learn that they can parent from anywhere and receive simple parenting tips highlighting the importance of communication. According to Ms. Cash, the Florida Department of Corrections is the third largest corrections' system in the United States with over 100,000 inmates and over 146,000 offenders who are serving either probation or parole. "Those with family support are less likely to re-offend and re-enter the corrections' system," she said. "Programs and partnerships like the one with Sesame Street are important for all Floridians because they help reduce reoffending, which reduces crimes and crime victims," said Ms. Cash. "In addition, children with positive parental involvement become better students and establish a strong educational foundation, creating a strong workforce in Florida which strengthens the economy and our communities." The event also gave the inmates an opportunity to interact with the prison's guards and other staff in a positive manner. "Today's event showed that even in uniform, our of cers can still be humans," said Charvis Hall. "Today's visit differed from other visits because there was more interaction with inmates, their families, and the of cers." The inmates were excited to spend this time with their children; many of them expressed how much the day meant to them. They pointed out that their children normally become bored with the traditional visits but with the Sesame Street event, they were able to interact with their parents and have fun. "The children had a great time and seemed a lot happier to be here," said Walfrido Pina. ProgramContinued From Page 1 PHOTO / AMANDA RAMOS GU Y Many participated in the Sesame Street program held at the South Bay Correctional Facility recently.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 14 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 5, 2013 BY CAROL RODRIGUEZ e Glades InitiativeFive clients of The Glades Initiative, Inc., a nonpro t in Belle Glade, were awarded $5,000 to participate in a special initiative from the Mary Alice Fortin Foundation, Inc. entitled, "Christmas in July." The Glades Initiative was one of seven agencies selected to participate in the program, which is designed to make a difference in people's lives at a time of year when it is easy to forget those in need. As part of the Christmas in July program, The Glades Initiative, Inc. submitted ve compelling stories describing the families and their plight to the Board of the Mary Alice Fortin Foundation. Much to her delight, the Glades Initiative's Executive Director, Karis Engle, received a letter on July 17 from Ms. Danielle Hickox Moore, president of the Mary Alice Fortin Foundation, informing her that in the spirit of giving, all ve families were awarded $5,000 each, for a total award of $25,000. Prior to announcing the winners, The Glades Initiative staff met with each family to discuss how they would utilize the funds should they be awarded. Each family signed a contract ensuring the funds would be used wisely. A small, intimate luncheon was held for the families on August 20th to announce the winner. At this point, each family thought only one would take away the $5,000 award. In attendance were the family members, some Glades Initiative Board Members, Beth Walton from the Town of Palm Beach United Way, Danielle Hickox Moore from the Mary Alice Fortin Foundation, and the staff and volunteers of The Glades Initiative, Inc. After lunch and a few words of thanks from President of the Mary Alice Fortin Foundation, Danielle Hickox Moore, Glades Initiative Board President, Richard Abedon, and Executive Director, Karis Engle, each family was announced to be the winner of the $5,000 award. Many were in tears. A $5,000 award can go a long way in the Glades community and these particular families were especially in need. This gift will certainly help ease much of their suffering. The Martinez Family Both Mr. and Mrs. Martinez were very emotional after learning they won the $5,000 award. Mrs. Martinez said, "We are very excited and very thankful to everyone." Mr. Martinez said, "We are so touched, we can't nd the words to thank the Foundation for this help. It means so much to us." Mr. Martinez was a seasonal farm worker, who often traveled to follow the harvest, causing him to leave their Belle Glade home during the summer months. He is now unable to work due to an injury/disability. Mrs. Martinez stays home to care for Mr. Martinez and their granddaughter who lives with them, and other grandchildren who are regularly dropped off during the day while their parents go to work. Mrs. Martinez is a wonderful caretaker, however, she is struggling with the upkeep of their home, which they own. The home is a very old -built in 1942 -wood structure that is damaged by termites. They do not have the nances to x it, and it is too old to qualify for any of the home assistance programs in the county. Mr. Martinez's income from social security disability is not enough to sustain the family needs, which is why they came to the Glades Initiative for help, applying for SNAP (food stamp) and Medicaid bene ts. When asked how they will use the money, Mr. Martinez said, "Our family home needs a lot of repair, we will start by xing the oor." The Jean Family When Floriene Jean realized her family also won $5,000, she said, "I was so happy I wanted to cry, because I had so much planned for the money." She continued, "I am really happy and grateful. I will use the money to get our family car xed." Floriene Jean, her son Sanley, and Sanley's father Dextra Mondesir came to the Glades several years ago from Haiti for a better life; Sanley was born in the U.S. Dextra is a seasonal farm worker who must travel north to Georgia during the summer when the Florida growing season ends. Floriene has worked hard since coming to this country to make a better life for herself and her family. When rst arriving here, she worked as a farm worker. She attended classes at night, obtained her GED, and improved her English skills. This paid off for her when Floriene began working full time at Glades Central High School last year as a maintenance worker. According to Floriene, (translated) "I don't want spend the rest of my life working in the eld. I want to make something better of my life." The family receives assistance from Marie Jean Jacques at Glades Initiative, Inc. for health and human services, such as SNAP (food stamps) and Medicaid. The Vera-Benitez Family When asked about her reaction to being awarded the $5,000, Humbertina Benitez said, "Thank you. "I am very thankful to the Mary Alice Fortin Foundation and the Glades Initiative, Inc. We will never forget the help we received here. All our life we will remember this day." The Benitez family consists of Humbertina Benitez, Felipe Vera, and their two children, one of whom is a disabled young adult in a wheelchair. Mr. Vera and Mrs. Benitez emigrated here from Mexico to make a better life for their family. Mr. Vera, who is older, takes odd jobs working in agriculture to support the family. Their wheelchair-accessible vehicle, which they need to transport their disabled daughter, is very old and in need of repair. Their daughter attends Palm Beach State College, and the family currently pays someone to transport her to classes. They came to The Glades Initiative for assistance, applying for bene ts because they do not speak English, nor do they have access to a computer -both of which are necessary to access the federal bene ts they were eligible for such as SNAP (food stamps) and Medicaid. With the help of our Community Resource Educator, Yasmin Gama, who is uent in Spanish, they applied for bene ts. Their home is in need of major repair such as new walls, a new plumbing system, and new air conditioning. They also are in need of new furniture such as beds, a new stove, and a new refrigerator. They will use this award to begin making home repairs. The Lozius FamilyWhen she heard her family was awarded the $5,000, Louise Lozius stated, "I was so happy with joy, I started to cry." When asked how she will use the money, Ms. Lozius explains, "We will use it to move into a better apartment, and buy a family car." Louise and Geral Lozius are a hard working, non-English speaking couple from Haiti, with seven children. Louise is a seasonal farm worker and Geral works two jobs, one full-time at the Lakeside Medical Center. In spite of their strong work ethic, they struggle to make ends meet and came to the Glades Initiative for basic needs assistance. Summer is a time that is especially hard for this family as the free lunches the children receive in school are not as easily accessible and Louise's farm work is off season. With the help of the Glades Initiative Community Resource Educator, Marie Jean Jacques, who is uent in Haitian-Creole, they are receiving SNAP (food stamps) to help cover food expenses, and Medicaid to ensure the family medical needs are met. The family lives in a three-bedroom, onebathroom apartment that is not big enough for their family of nine. However, their recent transportation issues have superseded the housing concerns of late. They have two used cars, but neither are working. They are currently relying on friends, public transportation, and walking, to get to daycare, work, the doctor, and other important appointments. They could use assistance to help with xing their cars. Not only do the Lozius's work very hard and save as much money as they can, but they are making great efforts to improve their family situation. Louise attends classes at the Literacy Coalition during the day so she can improve her English skills. She also completed the 40-hour child care training, in efforts to get out of farm work and into something better. The Lozius family will use their money to improve their housing situation by renting a larger apartment or home, as well as possibly buying a family car. They also need the money for school supplies, clothes and shoes for the seven children. The Bonilla-Mendez Family At the August 20 luncheon, the Bonilla-Mendez's three-month-old daughter, Kimberly, stole the show. Mr. Bonilla, Ms. Mendez, and their eight children, came to the Glades Initiative one year ago for assistance in applying for SNAP and Medicaid. The family, who only speaks Spanish, immigrated to the United States from Mexico for a better life.

Dated this 21st day of August, 2013. Barbara S. Butler Clerk of Circuit Court Hendry County, Florida 450871 CN/CB 8/29;9/5,12,19/2013 When gasoline prices go up in one’s neighborhood, it’s hard to imagine that anyone else has it worse. Who has the worst price volatility in the country? Which markets see the steepest price hikes? Where do the gas stations and convenience stores change the prices most frequently? GasBuddy found the answers. “While major markets like L.A., New York and Chicago get much of the attention and criticism, they’re not even in the top 20 among cities that see the steepest price hikes,” says Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy. “The steep price hikes recorded in more than 25 cities in the Midwest dwarf the increases seen in the rest of the country. And nowhere is it worse than Fort Wayne, Indiana. So far this year, Fort Wayne has recorded the highest single day average price hike -34 cents per gallon -among its three highest daily changes. It is followed by Indianapolis (0.32 cents per gallon); Dayton, Ohio (0.31 cents per gallon); Columbus, Ohio (0.30 cents per gallon) and Toledo, Ohio (0.28 per gallon),” said DeHaan. He emphasized that the gures represent the average of the three highest single-day price spikes and that Midwesterners have seen 30 or more cent increases often enough to know they’re not a statistical anomaly. On the west coast, Bakers eld, Calif. had the largest increase in its single-day prices (taking the average of the highest three daily spikes) with a nine-cent gain. In the Rocky Mountains region, Colorado Springs led the list with an 11-cent single day spike. The Gulf Coast region’s highest single-day spike was recorded in Lubbock, Texas (14 cents per gallon), while on the East Coast, it was Myrtle Beach, S.C. posting an 11-cent increase to lead that region. GasBuddy examined “frequency of price changes,” too and found that the Midwest and West Coast regions led the way with the number of days that prices changed a penny or more per gallon. Nationwide, stations in Stockton, Calif. have posted 72 days of price changes over a penny per gallon since January 1, while Jackson, Miss., Memphis, Tenn. and New Haven, Conn. have all recorded 67 increases of one cent or more. “While small cities lead the way among markets with the steepest price spikes, we saw some larger Midwestern cities, like Chicago, Milwaukee and Detroit, positioned prominently among the leaders for days with one cent or more price increases, and that undoubtedly fuels consumer anxiety in places where there’s plenty already,” said Gregg Laskoski, another senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy. “But when we look at the number of days with average price decreases of more than a penny, we see the Midwestern cities more than doubling every other region in the country,” DeHaan noted, “and it’s the downside of that roller coaster ride that consumers easily forget. We complain about the higher highs, but we’re quiet when we bene t from the lower lows!” GasBuddy Identi es U.S. Cities With Wildest Gas Price Fluctuations Senator Joe Negron (R-Stuart), Chair of the Senate Committee on Appropriations and of the Senate Select Committee on Indian River Lagoon and Lake Okeechobee Basin (IRLLOB) and Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto (R-Ft. Myers), Senate Majority Leader and Vice Chair of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, recently commented on a budget amendment proposed by Governor Scott through the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to reduce releases from Lake Okeechobee through a number of water redirection and storage projects. “During our Select Committee meeting last week, we heard from local elected of cials, scienti c experts and numerous constituents who offered innovative water storage solutions to help reduce and redirect the current releases from Lake Okeechobee,” said Chair Negron. “I appreciate the governor’s leadership in placing this budget amendment on consultation for our Legislative Budget Commission to review. We must act now to store and redirect water before it comes into our communities.” The Florida Senate received noti cation from the Governor’s Of ce that the DEP submitted a request for increased budget authority for projects affecting water management in the Indian River Lagoon and Lake Okeechobee Basin. The DEP requested increased budget authority of $2,769,525 from the Water Management Lands Trust Fund for the Grants and Aids to Water Management Districts Wetlands Protection special category. “This budget amendment contains the types of short-term water storage options Senator Negron and our Select Committee committed to exploring during last week’s meeting,” said Leader Benacquisto, who serves as a member of the Senate Select Committee on IRLLOB. “I’m hopeful the funding will be approved by the Legislative Budget Commission and take us one step closer to a permanent solution.” If approved by the Legislative Budget Commission the funding will be used to help reduce the ow of water to the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Rivers. Projects include operational and structural changes to existing system infrastructure that will help mitigate the estuary ows and high stages in the Water Conservation Areas (WCAs) by moving excess water south to Everglades National Park. This will allow maximization of critical pump stations to move excess water from the WCAs, thereby reducing their stages, so additional Lake Okeechobee ows can be sent south. Other short term projects include storing water on public lands in the St. Lucie, Okeechobee, and Caloosahatchee Basins. August 29 is the beginning the Legislature’s legally required 14-day evaluation period. The next step is approval by the Legislative Budget Commission, which is authorized to approve budget amendments submitted by the executive branch during the time period between legislative sessions. Debate: Lake ‘O’ Water Releases into St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Rivers COURTESY PHOTOSenators Negron and Benacquisto support proposed funding to reduce releases into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Rivers.

Doctors talk about scholarship opportunitiesOn August 30, Dr. Brown and Dr. Kairys from Lakeside Medical Center, came to Ms. Thivierge Manon’s class to speak to Practical Nursing seniors regarding chest trauma and chest x-ray. They were accompanied by two interns. Students in the class enjoyed the doctors’ presentation immensely. The doctors shared their medical school experiences, gave advice regarding which classes to take, and informed the students about two $5,000 scholarships they offer every year to students in the Glades area. Dr. Kairys told students, “The difference between people that get into medical school and the ones who do not is not that they are more intelligent; they just put in the effort.” This is just one example of the kinds of presentations and real-life experiences our medical academy students are exposed to during their time at Glades Central. For more information on the Medical Academy, please contact Sherry Canty, 561.993.1947, or e-mail at sherry.canty@palmbeachschools. org. Facts and some photos were gathered by student reporters, Lorena Flores and Stephanie Garza. Additional photos were provided by Ms. Manon.

On August 26, Dr. Walter T. Richardson, PH.D., brought his “March on Washington” presentation to a group of students at Glades Central Community High School in Belle Glade. Dr. Richardson was present at the infamous march in 1963 and shared his experiences with the students. He motivated students to “do what’s right and opportunities will follow.” Students, teachers, and administrators enjoyed the presentation immensely and have a new appreciation for that period in our history. Presentation ‘March on Washington’ SUBMITTED PHOTOSPictured above are Dr. Richardson with Anthony Anderson (Principal), Myra Leavy-Bazemore (Manager of African and African American, Latino, and Gender Studies for The School District of Palm Beach County), and three Glades Central students, Bashon Robinson, Aaron Loray, and Evangelina Rivera. The Property Appraiser’s Of ce mailed the 2013 Notices of Proposed Property Taxes and Proposed Non-Ad Valorem assessments on Thursday, August 22. This year, 642,400 notices were mailed to all property owners in Palm Beach County. The notices began arriving in mailboxes on Friday, August 23. The preliminary information was also posted on August 23 for each property on the Property Appraiser’s website, pbcgov.com/ PAPA. Property owners who disagree with the proposed amount of their property taxes can voice their objections at public hearings held in September by their respective taxing authorities. The dates and times are listed on the Notice. “My of ce receives thousands of calls each year from property owners to complain about their property taxes, but my of ce cannot help them with taxation issues,” said Property Appraiser Gary Nikolits. “However, if the property owner has a problem with our January 1 estimate of market value or was denied an exemption or classi cation, they should call my of ce for an explanation.” The property appraiser’s contact numbers are on the Notice. “If we are unable to resolve the matter, the property owner can le a petition with the Value Adjustment Board,” Nikolits said. The VAB petitionling period begins Friday, August 23 and ends Monday, September 16. Notice of Proposed Taxes
