BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunIt was a welcome bit of news for Belle Glade: the Ellen Show, a xture in the living rooms of millions of Americans, took notice of a little ve-year-old drum major at Glades Central High School and announced plans to conduct a live broadcast to Los Angeles. Last week, on Dec. 11, at Ef e C. Grear eld, hundreds of supporters of the band program erupted in a deafening roar as monitors connected Ellen DeGeneres with Taranza McKelvin Jr. For a brief moment, the national BY AMANDA RAMOS-GUY Special to e SunChristmas came 12 days early for 100 students at KEC/Canal Point Elementary. On Friday, the students were presented with bicycles donated by the Universal Surveillance Systems Foundation (USS Foundation). KEC/Canal Point Elementary was one of the two nalist schools from across the country selected to receive new bikes through the Adopt-A-Bike program. Suzanne Mawhinney, teacher at KEC, explained that the bikes will play an important role in the students' education by providing them a reliable means of transportation to and from school. She also says that the bikes demonstrate how much others care about them. Children were chosen based on their attendance, academic effort and good behavior. The school's principal, Dr. Derrick Hibler, called the event a "huge success". The students were very thankful to receive the bikes and many parents could be seen with tears of joy. For many of the students, having their name called to accept their bike was a complete surprise, while others learned about it a bit earlier from their parents. Dr. Hibler explains that the KEC teachers worked to have the school's name added to the program's roster and the teachers and staff began a social media campaign explaining why their students were so deserving. A few weeks after the nationwide campaign, the school was informed that they were in the semi- nals. Two days later, KEC received word that they were chosen along with two other schools from across the country as winners. Adel Sayegh, founder of the USS Foundation, grew up in poverty and encouraged the students to strive for Clutching a book titled, "The Little Engine That Could," Laura Calderon's then three-year-old daughter asked her to read the popular children's story to her. But, she couldn't. It was that moment in 1999 when the Belle Glade woman realized she needed to learn English and get an education to help her family and herself. The next day, she began searching for an adult English program and she and her daughter, now a junior at Dreyfoos School of the Arts, ended up in the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County Glades Family Education Program, learning English together.

excellence and success in their lives. Over the past two years, the nonpro t organization has delivered over 1,000 bicycles to disadvantaged children in elementary schools in Alabama, Idaho, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio. This year, the USS Foundation provided bicycles to schools in Florida and Idaho. For KEC/Canal Point Elementary, USS employees donated funds in lieu of their company holiday party to purchase the bikes and to make sure that KEC students will enjoy a brighter holiday. "The three shining stars truly behind this effort were three teachers, Mrs. Janine Silva, Mrs. Suzanne Mawhinney and Ms. Nani Dupee," said Dr. Hibler. "These teachers motivated other teachers, staff, and former students from KEC/Canal Point Elementary School and the community to push the Facebook and Twitter conversations." Dr. Hibler extended a special "thank you" to the USS Foundation and staff for selecting KEC and providing the bicycles for the students. "We also want to thank our guest speakers, Dr. Mary Imig, Title I migrant specialist, and Mr. Houston Tate, director of the Of ce of Community Revitalization, for speaking to our students and parents," said Dr. Hibler. "Thanks to Dr. Matthew Shoemaker, area superintendent, Mrs. Dwan Moore-Ross, west area director, Mrs. Anne Dorsey, community resource administrator, the parents, students, teachers, staff, and the School District of Palm Beach County for your support in this effort." 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee December 19, 2013 BIKESContinued From Page 1 Congressman Alcee Hastings Visits GCHSCongressman Alcee Hastings was on Glades Central High School's campus on Nov. 6.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee December 19, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonPainted Buntings have two distinct breeding populations. According to information on the Audubon website, the Eastern breeding population is found along the Atlantic Coast from North Carolina south to central Florida. Their migration usually occurs in April and May and then in September and October. Eastern Painted Buntings winter in southern Florida and possibly the Bahamas, Antilles, Central America and Cuba. This small, uncommon songbird is currently being reported returning to its wintering grounds in South Florida. The western population stretches from Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas and into Northern Mexico. The Western population winters in southern Mexico and Central America. The male Painted Bunting has a blue head and nape and shiny green back. Its rump, throat, chest, anks, belly, undertail coverts and eyering are red. The wings and tail are dark gray. Adult females have a bright, olive-green crown, nape and back. The throat, chest and belly are yellowgreen. There might be some blue feathers showing on the head. The rst-year male and female is similar in color to the adult female. Their song is a sweet, high-pitched, thin warbling sound. Calls are a soft rising "chip." This secretive bird is often dif cult to see, as it will hide in dense foliage even when singing from a high perch. Male Painted Buntings will ght with each other while defending their territory. Painted Buntings will forage on the ground or in low brush searching for seeds, spiders, insects and caterpillars. In the winter, they are often seen at feeders in southern Florida. In the northeastern corner of Florida, they are common breeders who will raise two to three brood from May to mid-July. The female lays three or four gray-white egg spotted with brown in an open-cup nest woven from grass, leaves roots and animal hair. The eggs are incubated for 11 to 13 days with the young leaving the nest approximately two weeks after hatching. This species is in decline and is "near threatened," possibly because of changes in the landscape, cowbird parasitism and trapping for the pet trade. If you would like to participate in the Dec. 28 birding trip or the Jan. 4 Christmas Bird Count at STA-5, email Margaret England at sta5birding@ embarqmail.com or call 863-674-0695 or 863-517-0202.

On Dec. 16, Governor Rick Scott thanked Broward, Franklin, Gadsden, Gilchrist, Glades, Hardee, Jefferson, Lafayette, Lake, Levy, Putnam, Santa Rosa, Seminole and Washington school districts for approving teacher raises. In addition, the Palm Beach County School Board was scheduled to vote this week on their pay raise plan. The Governor worked with the Legislature to pledge $480 million during the 2013 legislative session to reward teachers and thank them for their nationally recognized efforts to raise student achievement. Governor Scott said, "A majority of Florida school districts have approved a well-deserved pay raise for our outstanding teachers. Working with the Legislature, we were proud to recognize the achievements of Florida students by awarding teachers for their work. We will continue to nd ways to support Florida's teachers, who are the backbone of our entire education system." Education Commissioner Pam Stewart said, "I applaud these school districts for making teachers their priority and honoring Governor Scott's commitment to give them a well-deserved pay raise. The Governor knows that teachers work hard every day to raise academic achievement and deserve to be rewarded for their dedication to help students succeed." An additional 14 counties will join school districts throughout the state that have already approved teacher raise plans. Those districts include: Alachua, Baker, Bay, Calhoun, Charlotte, Citrus, Clay, Collier, Dixie, Duval, Escambia, Flagler, Gulf, Hendry, Highlands, Hillsborough, Holmes, Jackson, Lee, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Manatee, Miami Dade, Okaloosa, Osceola, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, St. Johns, St. Lucie, Sarasota, Sumter, Suwannee, Taylor, Union, Volusia, and Wakulla.

The Imaging Services Department, under the direction of Ed Chiarelli, recently underwent a MQSA (Mammography Quality Standards Act) inspection by the state of Florida’s Bureau of Radiation Control. This inspection takes place every three years and is quite extensive. Inspectors look at all detailed aspects of the hospital’s mammography program as they sort through piles of paperwork and ask many relevant questions. Under the guidance of Maria Camejo, HRMC’s lead mammographer, and its team of professionals (Claudia Sandoval, Sharon Marino, Alison Bowers, Jackie Swindle and Sheridan Radiology), HRMC is pleased to announce that the inspection went very well with no violations, which is a wonderful accomplishment for the hospital. The MQSA inspector was very complimentary of Maria Camejo and the hospital’s mammography program, saying it took him only half the time to conduct his inspection because of easy access to necessary documents and records, due to great organization. He also commented that he wished all of his inspections went as smoothly as the one at HRMC. In addition, earlier this year, HRMC received its renewal of accreditation from the American College of Radiology upon their rst pass, with no other necessary actions needed. Hendry Regional Medical Center wants the community to rest assured that they have a very dedicated team of individuals running a topnotch mammography program here at their local hospital, close to home. This holiday season, the Florida Department of Health (DOH) encourages Floridians to properly prepare meals and store food in order to prevent foodborne-illness or diseases caused by eating contaminated foods and drinks. “Preventing foodborne-illness is important to keep your family safe and healthy during the holidays and year round,” said Jamie DeMent, the department’s coordinator of the Food and Waterborne Disease Program. “Floridians should practice four simple steps to stay healthy while cooking this holiday season–clean, cook, chill, and separate.” An easy way to prevent foodborne-illness is to maintain a clean and tidy kitchen. Insist that any helping hands in the kitchen this holiday season are cleaned thoroughly and often. Wash any objects that are in contact with raw poultry – including hands, cutting boards and knives -in hot, soapy water. Also, be sure that all uncooked meat and poultry are prepared individually and separated from vegetables and cooked food. Keep all countertop and work areas clean with disinfectant spray. Those who have experienced a gastrointestinal illness during the past two weeks should refrain from preparing meals for others. Planning ahead to ensure there is enough time to fully prepare and cook a turkey is crucial. A frozen turkey needs 24 hours to thaw for every ve pounds of bird. Therefore, a 10-pound turkey will require two days of premium thawing time before serving. Thawing the turkey in the fridge reduces the risk of foodborne-illnesses from bacteria, which multiply rapidly at room temperature or in warm environments. Stuf ng the turkey prior to cooking it allows raw poultry juices to absorb into the stuf ng, causing improper cooking of the turkey to occur. Be sure to thoroughly cook the turkey at 325 degrees Fahrenheit. The turkey’s internal temperature should stay at 180 degrees Fahrenheit; any temperature below can result in bacterial growth. Experts say leftovers should be refrigerated within two hours of preparation. Leaving food out too long creates prime breeding ground for bacterial growth. When storing leftovers, separate raw meats, poultry, eggs and seafood into their own containers. Never leave food on the table and insist on heating up leftovers to their proper temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to throw away food that is cloudy or mushy, or food with an unusual odor. Also, dispose of any food that changes appearance, color and/or shape over a period of time. For more information on how to keep families safe from foodborne-illness this holiday season, please visit http://www.cdc.gov/foodsafety/, http://www.fsis.usda.gov/ and http://www.fda. gov/Food/default.htm.

With no videos, cable or TiVo, these were once a year opportunities. If you missed it, you wouldn’t see it again for an entire year. So, these were BIG events in my childhood. There was Rudolph, the Grinch, Charlie Brown, Frosty and a few others. There were also the old movies like Dicken’s “A Christmas Carol,” “It’s a Wonderful Life,” and “Miracle on 34th Street.” Those are still around, but they’ve been joined by dozens more. Now we have 24 days of Christmas with new movies and various versions of the old standards. I have come to realize that just about every Christmas movie or TV special has a message to share. They talk about the importance of family, about friendship and true love, even about Santa and presents and snow. Some are silly, some are sentimental and some are very odd. While we don’t get to see the Christ child in every one of these holiday stories, there are some very Christlike gleanings we can harvest. Take, for instance, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” The lesson is that there is something special about Christmas that transcends the presents, Christmas trees, meals, and decorations. The Grinch’s plan is simple. He gures that if he takes away all the Christmas “stuff,” the Who’s won’t be able to celebrate Christmas. But the Grinch is wrong. He realizes this as they still celebrate even after he stole all of their Christmas stuff. To quote Dr. Seuss from the TV show, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?” And, of course, it does. Christmas means hope. It means that God wasn’t nished with the world then, and God isn’t nished with it now. We are loved so much that God has done something amazing to save us and to show us the way. After watching “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” I knew there was something special about Christmas. But we are never told exactly why Christmas is special. I got a clue to answering this question by watching “Rudolph the RedNosed Reindeer.” The entire plot of Rudolph centers around the mis ts Rudolph and the elf Hermey. Rudolph has a red nose that glows, so he is shunned, mocked and excluded from the reindeer games. Hermey wants to be a dentist, and just doesn’t t in with singing and building toys. The red-nosed reindeer, the elf dentist and the whole kingdom of mis t toys all help us remember that being different shouldn’t mean being excluded. Every one of us is special to God. Even if, on the outside, we’re as unspectacular as Charlie Brown’s sad little Christmas tree, we are still loved by God. Our differences don’t make us less than others, in fact, our differences are often no more than diverse gifts from God to be treasured and used in the service of all. Jesus helped everyone to understand that it’s not enough just to love those who love us back, or to accept only the people who look and act like us. We are to do as he did, reaching out to the people considered untouchable, unlovable and unacceptable. We are to welcome them into God’s circle of embracing love. God loves us, all of us, and God wants us to love each other. So, summarizing all this, I learned from Rudolph this important lesson about Christmas: Something about Christmas means mis ts have a place, a community, a home. Or, rephrased, Christmas means that there are no more mis ts. A person may be an old Scrooge or the nastiest Grinch imaginable, but even in these extreme cases the miracle of Christmas still has the power to touch people and to change a heart.2013 Christmas GalaPAHOKEE — The United M.

The magic gave way to hilarity, as Ellen asked young McKelvin a few questions. “Taranza, when did you start being a drum major?” the host asked. “Since I was ve,” the ve-year-old, nowveteran drum major answered. The crowd would erupt again after Ellen announced two very special gifts. For all of his enthusiasm and energy, Taranza won a trip to Disneyland in California, his eyes growing several times their size. And then, the band program received a gift of $50,000 from JCPenney. The band director, Charles Moorer, was also on-hand to speak to Ellen. He was all smiles when he talked about building the program up to what it is today, and he beamed with pride as his band played for the national audience. According to Dr. Cindy McDade, Glades Central High School assistant principal, Mr. Moorer took the reins of the band program four years ago, starting with ve kids on a “shoestring budget.” Today, the band program has 70 students. Two of the students, Dr. McDade explained, had never played a musical instrument in their lives. They are now freshmen at Florida A&M on band scholarships. “We were thrilled, absolutely thrilled for our band, for the school, for our community, and for our students,” Dr. McDade said of the Ellen show visit. She had high praise for Mr. Moorer’s approach to teaching, offering one of his wellknown philosophies: “Just give me someone who’s willing and I’ll teach them.” SHOWContinued From Page 1 Holiday ClosingsAll Palm Beach County Library System locations will be closed on Dec. 24 and Dec. 25 for the Holidays.

SUN SPOTS Three students from Glades Day Middle School won rst place in the Okeechobee FFA Alumni Tool I.D. and Use Contest. The contest is designed to teach students the proper names of 150 common hand tools that would be used in an agricultural setting. The tools could be used in activities dealing with gardening, woodworking, welding, livestock and mechanical repair. Aside from identifying the tools, students must also take a written test describing the proper and safe use of the tools. The students at Glades Day School were taught a lesson over the tools and spent many hours outside of class studying and preparing on their own. Their hard work paid off on Nov. 12. This contest is designed to be a warm-up for the state nals which will take place in Haines City on Dec. 10. Team members were JJ Hernandez, Emily Perkins and Audree Carlson. Audree was the high individual for the entire contest. FFA Wins Tool I.D. Contest SUBMITTED PHOTOPictured from left to right are Emily Perkins, JJ Hernandez, Audree Carlson and Brian Tremble, an Okeechobee FFA Alumnus. nine years teaching basic English, citizenship and computer skills. In 2005, she was named National Adult Learner of the Year and honored during a ceremony at the Library of Congress. She enrolled at Palm Beach State College to pursue an Associate in Arts degree, something she never thought was possible. On Dec. 19, after years of hard work and juggling school with life, Calderon, 40, will don a cap and gown to accept her degree. She will share her own story of perseverance as the student speaker at one of two PBSC commencement ceremonies at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach. Calderon is among 2,676 students being awarded degrees and certi cates this term. The rst ceremony will be held at 9:30 a.m. for the 1,530 Associate in Arts degree graduates. At 1 p.m. the second ceremony will be held for all other graduates, including those receiving certi cates and Associate in Science and bachelor’s degrees. The ceremonies will be streamed live online at www.palmbeachstate.edu. “I feel so happy. It has been so dif cult and so challenging. I still can’t believe that I’m graduating. I never thought about getting an education, especially the rst year in the United States, because everything was really hard without the language,” said Calderon, who moved to Belle Glade from Mexico with her parents and four siblings in the 1980s. She attended seventh and eighth grade, but dropped out before high school to work alongside her father and siblings in the elds picking corn and cutting and rolling lettuce to help make ends meet. “My main job was the eld, and I never even dreamed about going to college,” she said. “It has not been easy, but not impossible. It’s a dream come true because I am the rst one to go to college and get a degree.” Calderon, who is married and also has a seven-year-old son, said her entire family is excited about her earning her degree. She has requested that her two children be excused from school to attend her graduation. “I really want them to see how important education is,” she said. “We are not rich. We don’t own a fortune to leave to our children, and the best thing that we can give them is education. That is something that no one can take away and that is their future.” LITERACYContinued From Page 1 Laura Calderon WE WERE THRILLED, ABSOLUTELY THRILLED FOR OUR BAND, FOR THE SCHOOL, FOR OUR COMMUNITY, AND FOR OUR STUDENTS.CINDY MCDADE

This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.21/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 12.8 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 15.4 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 0.7 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.8 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “Another downward trend in gasoline prices has emerged as motorists hit the roads in the last full week before Christmas,” said GasBuddy. com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Historically, this is about the time of year that gasoline prices hit their yearly lows, but this time around, I have more optimism that prices may move even lower in the next few weeks. As we nish our 2014 forecast at GasBuddy in the near future, we can say that 2014 does offer some relief compared to what we’ll end up seeing in terms of average in 2013, but for the time being, the next week looks to see a continued drop in gasoline prices,” DeHaan said.

BY CAROL RODRIGUEZ e Glades Initiative, Inc.The Glades Initiative, Inc., a nonpro t serving the Glades area since 2000, would like to thank the Howard E. Hill Foundation for their generous donation of $25,000 to support their work. Karis Engle, The Glades Initiative’s president/ CEO, says, “We are so grateful for the support of The Hill Foundation over the past two years. Their generosity allows us to continue providing services to residents and increase access to information about health and human services through The Glades Community Updates, a weekly e-blast that shares information to thousands of residents.” The Glades Initiative’s mission is accomplished by increasing communication, collaboration and connection to services for both Glades residents and health and human service providers. All The Glades Initiative services focus on increasing access to health and human services by removing the barriers that both residents and providers encounter within the system of care. Vice President of the Howard E. Hill Foundation Jennifer Earnest states, “as a grant maker, we recognize that there are overlapping human service agencies in the Glades. Streamlining them through the work of the Glades Initiative, Inc. is a huge bene t to the community.” The primary purpose of the Howard E. Hill Foundation is helping midto low-income families in Western Palm Beach, Glades and Hendry counties obtain affordable housing. Dr. Hill, Ms. Earnest’s grandfather, came to the Glades in 1936 and worked as a veterinarian. His work eventually led to other endeavors aimed at supporting the “true” western communities -west of the blue bridge. They recognize that a strong Glades community will support the residents. The Howard E Hill Foundation has donated $5,000,000 to the area in the past ve years. The Glades Day FFA Livestock Judging teams traveled to the Volusia County Fair on Nov. 9 to compete in the contest sponsored by the Volusia County Agriscience teachers. Students had to place classes of heifers, sheep and goats based on their muscle con rmation, nish and structural correctness. Students practiced in class and after school to prepare for the event. The Glades Day Middle School girls placed third overall and won a handmade metal plaque. The students are very proud of their accomplishment and are looking forward to more livestock judging competitions this school year. Livestock evaluation is a lesson taught in the agriscience class; the contest allows students to apply the knowledge gained in a real world setting. Students gain multiple skills and deep understanding of the subject matter. The FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agriculture education.

SCHOOL BRIEFS On Friday, Dec. 6, 25 students from Pahokee Middle School traveled to Palm Beach to visit and have lunch with the renowned author James Patterson. The eighth graders met Mr. Patterson at 10:15 a.m. at Worth Avenue and County Road, where he did a walking tour of the Avenue. They then joined Mr. Patterson for lunch at his home. Mr. Patterson hosted a "Book Club" with the students after lunch about the book they read, and signed the students' copies of "School's Out Forever." "Seeing my students reading and enjoying their experiences with books is changing the culture of our school in so many ways. I can't wait to see what we will become because of this," said Pahokee Middle School Principal LaVoise Taylor Smith. Last year, Mr. Patterson gave the school $25,000 to implement a reading initiative to promote the joy of reading for middle school students. Pahokee Middle piloted a book club program during and after school with 44 students with Suzanne Collins' book, "Hunger Games." The students read the books in book clubs of 12 to 15 students and held bi-weekly discussions with a mentor. The program became such a drawing card that students began to request entry into the club. "We kept reading pro ciency data on the students to see if this initiative would have any effect on the reading uency of our students," said Ms. Smith. "96 percent of our book club students made positive reading gains on the FCAT." Based on student interest and performance of the pilot book clubs, the school decided to take the book club initiative school-wide in 2014. There are now 21 book clubs with mentors who facilitate the book discussions twice each week. A reading culture is being built at the school. Sixth grade is reading a trilogy by Sharon Draper and has nished the rst book, "Tears of A Tiger." Seventh grade is reading the Suzanne Collins Trilogy and has nished "Hunger Games." Eighth grade is reading Mr. Patterson's series "Maximum Ride" and has just nished "The Angel Experiment." With the funding from Mr. Patterson, each student has a copy of the book for their grade level and they do their reading at home, during independent reading times in their Reading Class or after school in the James Patterson Reading Room. Discussions take place with mentors during Reading Class or Language Arts. Reading is done prior to discussion times with the mentors. The book clubs provide an opportunity for students to be involved in lively discussions about what they are reading, driven by the State Standards for Reading. For more information, please contact Ms. Smith at lavoise.smith@palmbeachschools.org or 561-924-6501. Local Students Visited Author James Patterson

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 18 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee December 19, 2013 BY CAROL RODRIGUEZ e Glades Initiative, Inc.The Glades Initiative, Inc. has been addressing the challenges in food security in the Glades area of Palm Beach County for the last ve years. In collaboration with many Glades-area partners, The Glades Initiative developed a strategic plan for food security. Many of the partners are local food pantries, such as the Glades Area Pantry in Pahokee and CROS Ministries Lighthouse Pantry in Belle Glade. Also at the table were the Palm Beach County Food Bank and several churches that have food pantry ministries serving the hungry in the Glades area. In the midst of their strategic planning, the Glades Initiative launched The Glades Area Food Bank in January 2012, and is now serving nine Glades food pantries and two Glades on-site feeding centers that meet their quality standards for food services. The current partnership between The Glades Initiative and Feeding South Florida began innocently: through a positive Facebook comment by The Glades Initiative regarding an event Feeding South Florida participates in each June in Belle Glade called "Muck Fest." The Glades Initiative commented, "Thank you for your support of the Glades Community!" Feeding South Florida responded to the comment with a personal message, "We'd love to get more involved in the Glades." That comment lead to a conference call between the leadership of both agencies. Feeding South Florida was invited to come out to the Glades and meet with their Glades-area partners -food pantries that receive food from them -at The Glades Initiative, where they could introduce their new leadership, including CEO Paco Velez, discuss changes they are making and allow the opportunity for their partners to offer feedback on what's working and what's not working in their food system. One of the things that The Glades Initiative does best is bring groups together to identify barriers or issues within the health and human system of care and collaboratively identify solutions to these issues. That's precisely what happened at this meeting held on Aug. 9. Because of our geographical isolation from the resources of the coast, one of the biggest challenges in the Glades system of care is transportation. Each of these small food pantries had to travel over 100 miles each week to Feeding South Florida's Ft. Lauderdale and Coastal Palm Beach facilities to pick up their share of food. The local pantries expended large amounts on gas, along with the wear and tear on their vehicles. Many potential ideas were discussed and Feeding South Florida left the meeting promising they would follow-up with a solution. A couple months later, The Glades Initiative heard back from Sari Vatske, Feeding South Florida's vice president of Community Relations. She had good news and wanted to bring all their partners together again at The Glades Initiative to announce their proposition. On Nov. 9, Paco Velez from Feeding South Florida introduced the Glades partners to the new partnership with Wellcare. Wellcare has generously donated funds to support a truck and one year of transportation costs to deliver food supplies to Feeding South Florida's Glades network. This is fantastic news for the Glades. This partnership contributes to The Glades Initiative's mission of improving the coordination and effectiveness of the health and human service delivery system in the Glades. Thanks to the work of The Glades Initiative, Feeding South Florida, Wellcare and the Feeding South Florida Glades network, the transportation barriers are now resolved. More importantly, the ones who bene t most are the low-income families who are in need of food assistance. All The Glades Initiative services focus on increasing access to health and human services by removing the barriers that both residents and providers encounter within the system of care. For more information about this nonpro t and the work they do, contact Karis Engle at kengle@gladesini-tiative.org or 561-996-3310. It is a reality show with a different perspective. There is no singing, dancing, mudslinging or outlandish stunts. Instead, this live webcast at Palm Beach State College (PBSC) in Belle Glade is giving science students a bird's eye view of the intricate lives and behaviors of one of the most mysterious creatures in the world the Barn Owl. Live webcams are installed inside two owl nesting boxes situated on the west side of campus, allowing students to observe the owls' activity not just during class or on campus, but any time and from any computer or mobile device. Students, as well as the public, can observe everything from the owls' resting patterns and food selections to their interaction with one another and their owlets. "It's like being in someone's house. Instead of seeing a snapshot, you see events 24/7," said Dr. Vetaley Stashenko, an anatomy and microbiology professor at PBSC who created and supervises the Barn Owl Project. "Students are quite excited to see what the owls are doing and how they're behaving. One can learn more from live events." Stashenko completed construction of the owl nesting boxes last year and then began working with PBSC's information technology and facilities staff to install webcams. With the new technology, Stashenko plans to transform the educational experience of students and generate research and writing material for science classes at PBSC. He says the scrutiny of real-time owl behavior also can provide data for English classes at PBSC and worldwide. "With our unique, continuously interactive environment, we have the potential to provide substantive data. Additionally, we can offer professional interpretation of observed owl demeanor for academic purposes," Stashenko said. "We're trying to incorporate this live study of owl performance into all of our biology classes. We intend to assign a certain amount of owl-time observation and then a writing task that will address their observations and conclusions of owl behaviors." Stashenko built the 24x36x18-inch owl boxes with plywood and mounted them on 10-foot poles. Wood shavings were used as nesting materials to pad the oors of the owl nesting boxes. Within a week of installation last year, two owls that normally would have nested in natural habitats had populated the nesting boxes. Faculty, staff and students, through a campus-wide naming contest, came up with the names Hootie and Luna for two owls that populated the rst nesting box (Camera 1). Based on the owls' unique visible features, Stashenko said it is clear that Hootie and Luna have continued to inhabit the rst nesting box, while another pair of owls have made the second nesting box their home. Stashenko said the second pair of owls have recently mated and the female has laid seven eggs. The female owl eliminated two eggs that were not maturing, and the parents are now caring for ve owlets that hatched this month. Hootie and Luna, however, have not produced any eggs this year or last year. The owls spend their days sleeping, sitting attentively, grooming or caring for their owlets, and their nights guarding their nest and searching for food, such as mice or rats. "Owls are nocturnal; they're not active during the day. At around 6:30 p.m. or 7 p.m., they start to become active," Stashenko said. The Barn Owl Project can go as far as Stashenko and other professors want to take it to help discover information not found in textbooks. "We're already nding out very interesting modes of behavior that are not recorded anywhere in the wildlife literature, and it's very educational," Stashenko said. "For example, we have discovered that the owls can recognize infrared light from the cameras. We have the ability to change the intensity of that light, and if we manipulate it, the owls will answer or call to the light." In addition, he said that while wildlife literature says that owls normally lay eggs between December and March, these owls have shown that is not always the case. "They're like people. They're going to behave differently. They're going to feed from different sources. They differ in how they behave, how they reproduce and how long they stay inside of the box. In the literature, you can't nd this sort of data," Stashenko said. A lot can be learned simply by what the owls eat. "When owls eat rodents they do not digest bones or skin. They regurgitate these items in the form of expunged pellets. If we examine these pellets, we can determine the species of rodents that live in the surrounding area," said Stashenko. PBSC campus administrators said they are pleased with Stashenko's work and enthusiasm for the project. "It's a great project that links the preservation of our ecology with the education of our students in a real life scenario. The best way to learn science is to be immersed in what is actually going on in our environment," said Dr. Holly Bennett, Belle Glade campus provost.
