BY NAJI TOBIAS Special to e SunRashaun Croney accounted for four of his team’s ve touchdowns to help the Blue Devils score a 31-14 homecoming win over Boca Raton on Oct. 11. The Pahokee senior athlete (13of-24 passing, 206 yards, 3 TD) was white hot with his accuracy early on, as he went 5-of-5 passing for two touchdowns in the rst quarter. Pahokee (5-1) went up 6-0 with 9:01 left in the rst quarter, after Croney threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to junior wide receiver Jason Johnson. But Boca Raton (3-3) got on the board later in the opening frame, as it cut Pahokee’s lead to 6-2 after a high snap off a punt attempt sailed into the end zone for a safety with 3:30 left. Pahokee ended the rst quarter with a 12-2 lead, as Croney threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to junior wide receiver Malik Thornton. The second quarter was all about the Blue Devils defense, as Croney picked off a pass from Boca Raton senior quarterback Scott Long and returned it for a 20-yard touchdown that extended his team’s lead to 18-2 with 5:46 left. Pahokee’s defense forced Long into four rst-half turnovers, including a lost fumble and three interceptions. Long was benched for Bobcats backup sophomore quarterback Philip Santiago after he threw his third pick to Blue Devils senior cornerback Dontrell Johnson with 4:14 left in the rst half. The Blue Devils went into halftime with a 16-point lead and never looked back. “Homecoming brings a lot of distractions, but I’m glad the boys were focused the whole week,” Pahokee head coach Blaze Thompson said. “They did their jobs and I’m proud of them for that.” Pahokee scored again in the third DRIVE A NEW 2014 ESCAPE FOR ONLY $199 PER MONTH 36 month lease with approved credit through Ford Credit. $2839 plus tax, title, & license due at signing.

According to those standards, lead should be present in drinking water at no more than 15 ppb (parts per billion). The latest water quality report for the Glades area shows that lead in the drinking water is currently at 44 ppb. These results are potentially concerning. The EPA reports that elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Information provided by the agency shows that lead in drinking water above the action level can result in “delays in physical and mental development, along with slight de cits in attention span and learning abilities.” In some adults, the lead can increase blood pressure, and people who drink this water over many years could develop kidney problems or high blood pressure, or experience health problems ranging from stomach distress to brain damage.

The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) approved the acquisition from Palm Beach County of a key piece of property that will help provide vital freshwater ows to the federally designated "Wild and Scenic" Loxahatchee River. Located on 1,800 acres west of the Beeline Highway, the Mecca Farms parcel will become a shallow-water storage area capable of sending water directly to the unique riverine ecosystem of mangroves, cypress trees, oysters and seagrasses teeming with life. "Freshwater ows are the lifeblood of this extraordinary river," said SFWMD Executive Director Blake Guillory. "By working with Palm Beach County, we have secured a long-term source of water that will help ensure the future health of the wild and scenic Loxahatchee." Signi cant components of the plan include: a $26 million investment from the Save Our Everglades Trust Fund for the District to purchase the property; conveyance of 150 acres of the property to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) for an Olympicquality, state-owned shooting range to provide a public recreation bene t; and an option for the county to repurchase approximately 98.56 acres as needed for a new extension alignment of Seminole-Pratt and Whitney Road Mecca Farms Parcel Map 1402. Project Detail and Ecological Bene ts Following a closing on the property, the District will begin work to design and construct a system of pump stations to move water onto the site and earthen embankments capable of holding water up to four feet deep, providing 7,200 acre-feet of storage. Control structures will allow for the gravity ow of water east through the C-18 Canal and into the Northwest Fork of the river. This ow will provide signi cant environmental bene ts, including supplementing water ow to the river during the dry season to meet its minimum ows and levels, which are de ned as the minimum water levels and/or ows required to prevent signi cant harm to the water resources; helping to prevent saltwater intrusion in the lower reaches of the Loxahatchee, which keeps mangroves from encroaching on the cypress slough portion of the river; and repurposing the L-8 Reservoir, originally slated to provide water for the Loxahatchee, to serve as a key component of the Governor's Restoration Strategies plan to improve water quality in the Everglades. Loxahatchee History On May 17, 1985, 7.6 miles of the Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River were designated as a national Wild and Scenic River. Under the National Wild and Scenic River Act of 1968, free- owing rivers with outstanding scenic, recreational, sh and wildlife, historic and cultural values are designated for preservation for the enjoyment and bene t of present and future generations. The Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River from Riverbend Park in Jupiter downstream to Jonathan Dickinson State Park in Martin County was the rst river in Florida to receive such a designation. Since 1985, the SFWMD has acquired more than 20,000 acres of land in the river corridor and tributary watersheds for preservation and restoration. Through the Loxahatchee River Preservation Initiative, numerous agencies and local governments have worked together on 65 habitat and water quality restoration projects, most of which have been completed. Nearly $18 million in legislative appropriations have been matched by more than $23 million in local funds to accomplish this work. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 SFWMD Approves Acquisition to Restore LoxahatcheeMecca Farms property provides a direct source of fresh water for the river The Clewiston Sugar Festival is starting a little early this year in planning and organizing for the 2014 event. As its rst fund-raising event of the year, the Sugar Festival Committee will hold the Sugar Festival Kickoff event on Nov. 16 at the John Boy Auditorium in Clewiston. The SF Kickoff event is meant to help begin raising some of the funds needed to contract the main stage entertainment, as well as other SF events that are being planned now for April 2014. The SF Kickoff is set for Nov. 16 beginning at 6 p.m. at the John Boy Auditorium. Planned that night are steak dinners and cocktails provided by the Clewiston Elks Lodge, raf e items, and a dance with music by the popular local band Downtime. "We are looking for the help and support of our local citizens and businesses for this Kickoff event," said Sugar Festival Committee Chairman Pam Kelley. "We are selling tickets to this event now at $40 per person or $75 per couple. We are also hoping our local businesses can help us with donation items to raf e. We have some great raf e items already and even some surprises for the night. It's going to be a very fun event." Chairman Kelley said it takes a lot of funding to put on a quality show each year that is meant to entertain not only our local community and their family members who come each year to visit, but also to draw visitors from the area into Clewiston. Direct Industrial Products is sponsoring the SF Kickoff to help the Sugar Festival get started in raising funds for this year. Those who cannot attend the event can still purchase raf e and 50/50 tickets, as they will be sold in advance and one does not have to be present to win. For SF Kickoff event tickets, raf e tickets and/or 50/50 tickets, please call 863-9837979 or 863-447-3901. Other ways to help: Save the date for April 12, 2014 for the Sugar Festival; "like" the Sugar Festival Facebook page or consider a sponsorship of the 2014 Sugar Festival. "I am always pleased to call Clewiston and Hendry County home because of how we always pull together as a community for the Sugar Festival, both in planning and attending the event," said Chairman Kelley. 2014 Clewiston Sugar Festival Starts With Nov. 16 Fund-Raising EventSUBMITTED PHOTO

BY DAVID RUIZThe commission recently launched a review of the city charter that eventually may end with a series of voter referendums on changes to the document that establishes the framework for Pahokee’s municipal government. It is my understanding that placing charter amendments on the ballot requires approval of a majority of the commission. Some in the public have expressed the idea of moving to an executive or strong mayor system, where that elected of cial runs the daily operations of the city government. Currently, the commission sets policy, and the city manager and other charter of cers carry it out and run daily operations. The strong mayor system, in which all key policy and management decisions ow from the mayor’s authority, was eliminated from thousands of U.S. local governments in the 20th century, springing from the public’s desire for government reform. I believe the strong mayor form of government can lead to governmental decisions moving away from the public interest and toward the private interest. In the strong mayor form, the elected mayor is given almost total administrative authority and a clear, wide range of political independence with the power to appoint and dismiss department heads without council approval and little, or no public input. In this system, the strong mayor prepares and administers the city budget, although that budget often must be approved by the council. The best-managed and cleanest local governments in the United States are not strong mayor governments; they are council-manager governments. This is the structure of almost half of the local governments in the U.S. In this form of government, the job of the mayor is not to be the chief executive of cer, with responsibility for day-to-day management and decision-making. That job is handled by a professional city manager hired by the mayor and city commission as a whole. There are universities that train these managers, who would bring expertise and education. They would also bring experience in management, administration, nance, operations and an ethic of clean and ef cient government. In this system, the elected governing body -commonly called a city council or city commission -is responsible for the legislative function of the municipality, such as establishing policy, passing local ordinances, voting appropriations and developing an overall vision set by majority vote. They also provide oversight of operations, holding the city manager accountable. The city manager is responsible for hiring and management. The city manager position under this form of municipal government essentially provides professional management to the board of directors -the commission. One great advantage of this system is that it insulates day-to-day management from the intrusion of politics. There would be no bene t of “greasing” decisions with the mayor or with individual council members, because they would not have that sort of power. The council manager form of government is used in 40.1 percent of American cities with populations of 2,500 or more, according to the 2011 Municipal Yearbook, published by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA). We must move away from the concept of the mayor as municipal savior. It is more prudent to have the city structured as it currently is. Under a strong mayor form of government, I do not believe that one person should control the trajectory of the agenda, community, policies, etc. Having each individual on the commission share equal authority in one voice, one vote is best. Our elected of cials should be seated as a result of being chosen by a broad-based voter population, rather than just the product of the most strongly motivated -and sometimes extremist -voter segments that can arise with strong mayor form of government. There are some city commissions that do not appoint a temporary resident advisory board to review the charter and make recommendations on possible changes. Instead, the commission will, with public input at a series of meetings, take the helm of the process. The opposite of that is to empower a panel to review the charter independently and report back with suggested changes. What if the members of the advisory board that suggest changes to the charter don’t have experience in government, management, administration, nance or how the daily operations of the city will be carried out if another form of government is chosen? Citizens must weigh the pros and cons of any change in governmental structure against the overall bene t to the city. For those considering a change for strong mayor governance as an easy choice, it’s about the law of unintended consequences. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 Letter to the Editor: Change to a Strong mayor Form of Government “I believe the strong mayor form of government can lead to governmental decisions moving away from the public interest and toward the private interest.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Tufted Titmouse is a common breeding bird found in eastern Mexico, north to Nebraska and the Great Lakes, and throughout the eastern United States from Maine to Florida. This resident species is a familiar bird at bird feeders throughout the Panhandle and much of the Florida peninsula. They are frequently reported in Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee Counties. Tufted Titmice are smaller than Northern Cardinals, but they appear larger than other small songbirds at a feeder because of their large head and eye, thick neck and full bodies. Their bushy pointed crest and stout bill help identify Titmice even in silhouette. The black patch just above the bill makes this bird look snub-nosed. They have soft silvery plumage above, and are white below with rust or peach-colored wash down the anks. Juveniles are paler and lack the buff anks and black forehead. The oldest known Tufted Titmouse lived to be 13 years and three months old. This small bird has a nasally and mechanical call which is whistled in series of four to eight repeated notes that sound like "peter-peter-peter." They also make a harsh, fussy, scolding distress call when owls or other predators are sighted and will respond to other birds' distress calls by coming close to investigate or join a group of birds who are mobbing a predator. Tufted Titmice are found in orchards, parks and suburban areas where there is a dense canopy of trees, as well as cypress swamps, pine atwoods and hardwood hammocks. They are often seen itting from branch to branch or hanging upside down and sideways investigating cones, undersides of branches and leaf clusters. They will also hop on the ground searching for fallen seeds or insects, or visit bird feeders looking for food. When they nd large seeds, they will hold the seeds with their feet and hammer it open with their beaks. In fall and winter, they often hoard the shelled seeds in the crevices of tree bark. Their diet consists mainly of insects, seeds, nuts and berries. Titmice nest in natural tree holes, old nest cavities of other birds and natural cavities. The will also nest in arti cial structures, including fence posts, metal pipes or nest boxes. They are unable to excavate their own nest cavities. A cup-shaped nest is built inside the cavity in six to 11 days using damp leaves, moss and grasses, as well as bark strips. The nest is lined with soft materials, such as string and cotton, as well as hair, fur and wool which are sometimes plucked directly for living mammals. One brood is normally raised during the nesting season, which extends from March until June. The female lays three to six white eggs, which have nely spotted shades of brown. She incubates these eggs until they hatch in 12 to 13 days. The young edge when they are 15 to 16 days old.

BY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchOne of the early Christian writers said, “The Church can respond to anything but being ignored.” That’s been a partial experience for me. Many times, there are answers to be given that have come from knowledge or experience. Other times, the answers have come from the person himself who is asking a question. People who have consulted me about a decision to be made often have the answer within them; I am not always able to give “the answer,” but as we explore options, one will stand out. It generally proves to be the right answer for the person at that moment and I am happy to have had a part in helping them nd it. There are other times when the answers come from participating in worship or praying silently alone. I’ve had people tell me that what I said on a given Sunday morning spoke to them directly -no credit taken by me and something certainly not something I planned. That’s the way God works; we are instruments in His scheme of things and that’s enough. Other times, my answers have come through insights gained while praying about some problem for others or for myself. I hope I’ve learned not to make hasty decisions when something important is to be decided. Thinking, meditating, praying, giving myself time to follow up on the various options that present themselves have led me to not regret my choices later. Then there are those who ignore the community of the faithful. How do we respond to them? I remember the words of one leader who I met some years ago in his of ce while seeking to undertake another ministry. My calling led me to want to explore new horizons and seek something beyond what many of my colleagues were doing. I sought to see if I could minister in another language, another culture, another place than the traditional ones I had earlier anticipated to be my life’s work. As we sat in his of ce, I outlined what I was feeling called to do but worried if there might be a place for such a ministry in his area. He assured me that there was and I asked, “How do you go about it?” His answer was, “You wait until the opportunity presents itself, then move!” I re ected that is how the Church has always responded to being ignored: wait until the opportunity presents itself, then go with it. As I read the New Testament, I nd no account of Jesus telling people who come to him, “Look, I’m busy right now” or “Can you come back later?” or “That’s not my problem.” Accounts of reaching out take place; a man approaches Jesus when he comes to a crowd and asks help for his son (Matthew 16:14ff), or as He is challenged while teaching in the temple (Matthew 21;23ff, Mark 11:27ff), or while when someone is on the roadside crying to Him as he passes (Mark 10:47ff). Sometimes, His ministrations take place while visiting a town and being encountered by a leper (Luke 5:12ff), or when in the midst of teaching, a man is lowered through the roof right in front of Him (Luke 5:18ff). Jesus stopped teaching and takes time out to heal. Time after time, he responds when the opportunity presents itself. This is the example I see Him leaving for us. Those who have ignored or avoided or sidestepped for so long are nevertheless received and given aid when asking for it. The old Church leader and my potential guide was right. The English writer of long ago who said the Church could respond to anything but being ignored missed something. A continued witness, a continued presence is the answer. The moment will come if you wait for it. The Lord did not come into a world where He was warmly welcomed by all; each had to nd a moment of readiness for themselves and each was welcomed at that special time. As for our ministries together? Be ready and respond in love when the moment comes. If you would like to contact Rev. Thomas about this column or have an idea for one, please send an e-mail to fatherthomas@saintmartins-clewiston.org. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 RABIES $10 € PARVO $12 € Half Price Boarding €For a limited timeFREE EXAMA $50 ValuePartners in the Way to Happiness Foundation and a Drug Free World.

Thomas S. Thomas With approximately 600,000 acres of land open to the public, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) joins the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in promoting opportunities to celebrate 2013 National Public Lands Day this Saturday. Camping, bird-watching, hiking, hunting and horseback riding are among the most popular activities on District-managed lands. These and other recreational opportunities throughout the District’s 16-county region can be found online at www.sfwmd.gov/recreation. The following are some of the 2013 Recreation Highlights (Fiscal Year 2012-2013). An estimated 10,000 campers utilized District-managed lands. More than 10,000 duck and 300 alligator hunters used Stormwater Treatment Areas in Palm Beach and Hendry counties. More than 1,000 equestrian enthusiasts rode through the Kissimmee area. More than 50 organized-bird watching tours with approximately 1,500 participants in Stormwater Treatment Areas in Palm Beach, Hendry and Martin counties. More than 300 students and teachers participated in educational activities at the DuPuis Management Area visitor center in Martin County. More than 600 people participated in guided nature hikes on the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed (CREW) property in Lee and Collier counties. 10,000 hours were logged by volunteers serving as campground hosts, leading bird-watching tours and assisting with trail maintenance, trash cleanups and environmental education. 66 trailhead/parking areas, 50 designated camping areas, 334 miles of trails, and 238 geocaches were added/improved. Each year, the District evaluates opportunities to improve access to public land for recreation. The following are some recent additions. In a partnership with Audubon of Martin County, organized bird-watching tours have recently started at the Lakeside Ranch Stormwater Treatment Area. In cooperation with the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, staff opened a new 7-mile trail for hiking and bicycling connecting STA-1E and STA-1W. A new multi-use (hiking, biking, horseback riding) public trail was opened on the east side of the Loxahatchee River Management Area property.

New location will better serve western communityClinics Can Help believes that every person should be entitled to the proper medical equipment, and they are one step closer to reaching a greater number of children and families with their expansion into Belle Glade. The organization has partnered with Arc of the Glades to open a new western community location, located at 4250 NW 16th Street, for their Lending Closet program, which provides free medical equipment and supplies to individual patients who have little to no insurance or no money to purchase these items on their own. “Studies show that having the proper medical equipment signi cantly increases your health and well-being,” said Owen O’Neill, executive director of Clinics Can Help. “We know the need in Belle Glade and the western communities is vast and we want to make these items accessible to all, no matter their nancial status. Everyone is entitled to quality medical equipment and we want to ensure that these items get to those who need it most.” In the last 12 months, Clinics Can Help has helped more than 1,400 new clients and over 400 returning clients get the necessary equipment and supplies they need to aid in their recovery. The Belle Glade location opened to the public in August 2013 and celebrated the opening with a ribbon cutting and open house on Sept. 24. “We wanted to give the community the opportunity to come by, say hello and learn more about what we do,” said O’Neill. “Those who need equipment and supplies, or have some to donate, are encouraged to reach out to us. We are here to help and want to the community to know our door is open to them.” Those in attendance included Randy Scheid, of the Quantum Foundation; Barbara Davis, Belle Glade secretary to Representative Rader; Beverly Scott, assistant city manager for the city of Belle Glade; Shreya Kuntawala, legislative assistant to Senator Joseph Abruzzo; and Clinics Can Help Board Members Sherry Eastwood and Mary Cay Martin. Clinics Can Help is a nonpro t organization based in Palm Beach County that helps children, adults and the elderly by redistributing surplus medical equipment and supplies to those in need. Through their support of free clinics, which provide equipment to nursing schools, and the organization’s Lending Closet, which provides medical equipment to underserved patients, they are helping to enhance healthcare in the community.

simple solution. Explaining the anomaly, Mr. Beaudet said that water being processed at the Glades plant is almost completely free of lead contaminants. The system’s puri cation process normally treats about 99.9 percent of all contaminants, whether these are microbial (viruses and bacteria), inorganic (salts and metals), pesticides, or organic chemical (synthetic and volatile organic chemicals). The director explained that the water is treated to satisfy even the most stringent requirements. So why is lead showing up in a report that the water utilities department itself circulates? Because some homes in the Glades are old, explained the director. Mr. Beaudet pointed to aging infrastructure in many homes in the Glades as the root of the lead seepage issue. According to him, older homes were built with plumping that contained lead-based solder. It is this solder that dissolves in small traces in the water and it is this that is re ected in the water quality report. Mr. Beaudet said that out of the entirety of the water system line that feeds water into homes, only a single service line contained lead. The problem, he said, is not in processing the water, or its distribution to homes, the problem is with the homes themselves. “There is no lead coming out of the water plant,” the director said. The solution, beyond taking extreme measures, is to let the water run for 30 seconds to ush out any lead contaminants. “My mother told me this,” said Mr. Beadet. “Once you let that water run, that rst ush sample invariably goes down in level. We tell people, ‘let the water run.’” To test the integrity of the water, samples are taken at various locations around the Glades, early in the morning, and before water has had a chance to be ushed out. These samples are then averaged and the resulting number is published in the annual report. This does not mean that all homes in the Glades are delivering lead-contaminated water to the faucet, but some are. Mr. Beaudet said homeowners should neither be concerned enough with the lead seepage to consider tearing up their lines to install lead-free piping systems. “That would be a wasted expense. You’re not going to get dangerous amounts of lead,” said Mr. Beaudet. “Forty-four parts per billion sounds like a whole lot, but the action level used to be 50 (ppb). This was reduced years ago by the EPA.” Residents should not lose sleep over the gure. Severe danger to people would require the parts per billion to be much higher, Mr. Beaudet said. Since the results found lead to surpass the action level, the county’s water utility has addressed the issue by distributing brochures explaining the issue, and how to address it. Water customers received the brochure in June, and copies of it were made available at local libraries, city halls, and to all new water customers. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 LeadContinued From Page 1 LIGHTHOUSE CAFThe Lighthouse Caf is asking for the community’s help to meet the needs of its neighbors in the Glades.
