The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a non-pro t organization that serves veterans and service members who were injured (mentally or physically) in the line of duty. According to the organization, a large percentage of service members are surviving injuries incurred on the battle eld as a result of advancements made in battle eld medicine and body armor. According to the WWP's website, for every U.S. soldier killed in both World Wars, 1.7 were wounded. Today that number has signi cantly increased. This does not include the 48,000 who were injured in recent military con icts, 400,000 suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and other combat-related depression, American Legion Donates to Wounded Warriors Project DRIVE A NEW 2014 FUSION SE FOR ONLY $199 PER MONTH*36 month lease with approved credit through Ford Credit. $2529 plus tax, title, & license due at signing.

One of my teachers told about the rebuilding of Japan after World War II: The railroads were destroyed and in an effort to modernize, a newer-model locomotive was brought in from the U. S. The Japanese carefully took it apart and copied all of the parts, then built new engines from this template. The locomotive they bought had been repaired during its lifetime and there was a patch on the boiler. Each Japanese locomotive came brand spanking new from the factory with a patch on the boiler! There have been times when I’ve sought to rebuild something, but asked along the way about what each part did or why the designer included it. Sometimes I’d run into “local variations” for one reason or another: a lawn mower with the air cleaner removed so it would be easier to start; a missing socket in a socket set that was replaced with a metric equivalent; radio knobs that had been glued back onto the radio because they had cracked or the metal insert was lost. Such measures work, but they come with a price. The lawn mower would be taking in dirt, the socket set would be bad for my knuckles and the radio couldn’t be disassembled if repairs were needed. There are always stop-gap solutions, and they come with a price. I’d see two holes beside the carburetor on the lawn mower and know they were for something. Looking at other lawn mowers soon let me know why. A change in the numbering on one of the sockets was a warning: if I want to keep my knuckles intact, beware! Radio knobs can be replaced from other non-working sets. Then the restoration is how the maker intended it to function; demise is forestalled and a small resurrection has taken place. I see the same thing in Churches, as well. Some local custom is af xed to the workings of a religious group, nobody asks any questions and the boiler patch becomes law. Nobody checks with what the rest of the faithful are doing, or how the practice came to be. It seems that this is not a new problem! The Acts of the Apostles tell us that some went out on their own, not part of the wider fellowship of Churches, and caused those in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia to be “disturbed” and “troubled” (Acts 15:22ff). The disciples wrote, “It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to burden you with anything beyond the following requirements ... (vs. 29)” -not adding anything else and keeping erratic local situations from becoming out-of-hand. I see the same thing in people’s lives: avoiding problems by denying they exist, covering for others in hopes things will get better on their own, pushing others into something that’s only good for themselves. Temporary patchwork can come back to haunt us. The apostles saw it at work in three Churches and intervened, not to add more problems, but to avoid what was leading them astray. I am a part of different, larger groups. Hearing the latest developments in ministry, or in other areas of my professional interests, keeps me in touch with my colleagues and gives me resources when I have questions about what to do in a particular local situation. I can contact someone who has “been there before” and learn of approaches to take. I can share a proposal for something I’d like to undertake and see if it’s been tried before. I can attend conferences to meet with colleagues and learn of the latest developments. In short, I work to keep balance by being part of the larger Church, the larger community of professional colleagues, the greater body of the faithful. Likewise, it is those around us who help us keep personally balanced; the wider the circle, the better the opportunities for help when we need it. The wider the circle, the more ways to look for true solutions that go beyond patchwork and the more ways to better become who God intended us to become. If you would like to contact Rev.

The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Committee, in partnership with the Glades Ministerial Assocation, named Taranza Leon McKelvin Jr. as the parade marshal for the 2014 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. parade. Taranza Leon McKelvin, Jr., “ ve-yearold drum major,” is the son of Commissioner Taranza (for the city of South Bay) and Katisha McKelvin, and little brother to Prince McKelvin. Taranza is a Kindergartener at Glades Day School and is the youngest drum major for the Glades Central Community High School Marching Maroon Machine Band. Taranza made his drum major debut in the 2013 Muck Bowl, where he wowed the crowd with his amazing moves. His performance went viral and was broadcast on ABC World News, Inside Edition, CNN news, HLN Morning Express, the Huf ngton Post and around the world. Taranza’s Muck Bowl performance video was recognized as the 2013 Palm Beach Post top viewed video. Taranza received special invitations to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Rachael Ray Show, HLN Morning News and the Steve Harvey Show. On December 11, 2013, Taranza was featured with the Glades Central Community High School Marching Maroon Machine band during a live broadcast on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show in Belle Glade. In return, he was rewarded with a trip to Disneyland, California and a personal invite to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres show to meet Ellen DeGeneres. Additionally, the Glades Central Community High School Band program was awarded $50,000. When Taranza is not marching, he enjoys watching other bands perform, spending time with his family and friends, attending church, dancing, playing the drums, guitar, and keyboard, participating in pageants, modeling, and dressing up in suits. Taranza aspires to become the greatest drum major ever. When Taranza graduates from high school he plans to attend Florida A&M University, march in their band as a drum major, and study to become a Neurosurgeon. Taranza’s life motto is, “Trust in God, Pray and Believe and All of Your Dreams Will Come True!” Drum Major Leads Parade as MarshalFive-year-old Internet sensation guides the 2014 MLK Parade in Belle Glade 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 HOMEEQUITYLINES...endless possibilities!

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe American Gold nch is one of the most common and widespread birds in North American. It is the state bird of New Jersey, Iowa and Washington. Populations in southern Canada and the southern United States migrate seasonally south, but will linger longer in locations where food is abundant. They are a relatively common wintering bird in Florida, but most depart the state by early April. These small nches, which are about ve inches long, are also called Wild Canary or Gold nch. They have a thick, short, conical bill with a pale or light gray color, small head, long wings and short-notched tail. Both male and female birds have a white rump. In the spring and early summer, adult males are bright yellow with a black forehead, black wings with white markings, and with patches both above and beneath the tail. Adult females are duller yellow beneath and olive above. Wintering birds are drab, non-streaked brown with blackish wings and two pale wing bars. These birds are the only nch that molts its body feathers twice a year, once in the winter and again in late summer. The oldest known American Gold nch, as of May 2007, lived to be 10 years and ve months old. The male's song is a long, variable series of twitters and warbles, which can be several seconds long. These birds continue to learn song patterns throughout their lives. The American Gold nch's most common call sounds like the bird is quietly saying, "po-ta-to-chip," with a very even cadence. Some of their other calls include harsh threat calls or males making a "tee-yee" courtship call. The Gold nch's main habitats are weedy elds, overgrown areas and oodplains where plants, like sun owers, thistles and asters, are common. They are among the strictest vegetarians in the bird world. Their diet consists mainly of seeds from plants, grasses and trees, and they only occasionally swallow an insect. At bird feeders they prefer nyler and sun ower seeds. American Gold nch nest later than most North American birds. Most nesting occurs in June or July when there is an abundance of milkweed, thistle and other plants to use for nesting material and as food for their young. When Brown-headed Cowbirds lay eggs in the Gold nch nest, the young Cowbird chick seldom survives longer than three days on the all-seed diet that the Gold nch feed their young. A mated pair of American Gold nch will raise one to two broods of four to six eggs annually. The female does most of the 10to 12-day incubation, but both parents feed their offspring during the 11to 17-day nesting phase. Anyone who would like to participate in upcoming driving trips at STA-5 on Feb. 1, 15, 16 or 17 or March 8 or 9 should email Margaret England at sta5birding@embarqmail.com or call 863-674-0695 or 863-517-0202.

BY NAJI TOBIAS Special to e SunLenorris Gaines had a season to remember for the Clewiston Tigers. The junior athlete, who nished with 30 catches for 794 yards and seven touchdowns, was the only area player selected to the Class 4A All-State First Team. "It's a privilege, but it wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for the teammates I had around me," Gaines said. "I just always felt like it was a minor set back for a major come back." The dynamic playmaker, who scored both of Clewiston's touchdowns in a thrilling 16-10 road over crosstown rival Glades Day in Week 9 of the regular season, credits assistant coach Brad Garrett for the progress he has made on the eld. "I owe all my success to Coach Garrett for pushing and believing in me to the fullest," he said. Gaines, who also caught two interceptions on defense, recapped his junior season. "I worked hard last summer," he said. "The team had something to prove, so I had to work hard to make sure that happened. I came a long way in learning how to block for my teammates when I didn't have the ball and thinking before acting on anything. But really, I just made plays when I had the chance." Gaines wasn't the only All-State selection from our area. Glades Central senior linebacker Jarvis Philibert was a Class 4A All-State First Team Defense pick, while fellow teammate and senior cornerback Bernard Willingham made the Class 4A All-State Second Team Defense. Meanwhile, Clewiston senior offensive lineman Joe Hernandez was selected to the Class 4A All-State Second Team Offense, while fellow teammate and senior running back Derry West was a Class 4A All-State Honorable Mention pick at his position. In Class 3A, Pahokee senior cornerback Dontrell Johnson and linebacker Anton Paige were both All-State Second Team Defense selections, while senior athlete Rashaun Croney was a 3A All-State Honorable Mention pick as a utility player. Class 2A had two All-State picks from Glades Day, as senior offensive lineman Dillon McGahee made the classi cation's All-State First Team on offense, while fellow teammates and juniors William Mercer and Kevon Spence were 2A All-State Second Team Defense picks at defensive lineman and defensive back, respectively. Here's the complete list of our area's All-State picks: Glades Central LB Jarvis Philibert Class 4A All-State First Team Defense DB Bernard Willingham Class 4A All-State Second Team Defense Glades Day OL Dillon McGahee Class 2A All-State First Team Offense DL William Mercer Class 2A All-State Second Team Defense DB Kevon Spence Class 2A All-State Second Team Defense Pahokee DB Dontrell Johnson Class 3A All-State Second Team Defense LB Anton Paige Class 3A All-State Second Team Defense UT Rashaun Croney Class 3A All-State Honorable Mention Clewiston WR Lenorris Gaines Class 4A All-State First Team Offense OL Joe Hernandez Class 4A All-State Second Team Offense RB Derry West Class 4A All-State Honorable Mention In total, there were 11 All-State selections from our area. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 23, 2014 Glades Area Players Make Appearance as All-State Selections SUBMITTED PHOTORashaun Croney, Class 3A All-State honorable mention pick. “I OWE ALL MY SUCCESS TO COACH GARRETT FOR PUSHING AND BELIEVING IN ME TO THE FULLEST.”LENORRIS GAINES

Students enter the science fair competition by completing and applying the scienti c method in their science projects. These projects have displayed the students’ skills in technology, math, biology, physical science, chemistry and cooking science. The science boards were judged by eight community leaders, who graded the boards according to the science fair rubric. During this Science Fair, students were able to learn and use their scienti c practices and apply them to real-world challenges.

More than 350 youngsters from throughout western Palm Beach County will travel to the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center on the Glades campus of Palm Beach State College on Friday, February 7 to participate in the 17th annual VSA West Fest sponsored by VSA Florida Palm Beach County. This year’s event, “ArcTic Exploration,”will begin at 9:30 a.m. and conclude at 12:45 p.m. VSA West Fest provides children with disabilities an opportunity to showcase their achievements in the arts and gain exposure to new visual and performing arts experiences. This year’s event will include children from schools in Belle Glade, Pahokee, and South Bay. The students will perform, produce, and experience thematic art in several forms through a series of workshops, art exhibits, and performances. Activities include an exciting stage show featuring performing groups from area schools, plus outdoor art activities headed by professional artists from throughout South Florida. Professional artists Susan Wilders, Tracy Rosof-Petersen, Jill Schmidt, Penny Sangregorio, and Dorinda Shutts will direct the young artists in Arctic-themed visual art projects including printmaking, sculpture, painting, and wearable art. The students will participate in an interactive music workshop with professional musician Olrick Bethel. Students who have prepared a performance will perform on stage in front of their teachers and peers. The festival is sponsored by businesses and individuals from western Palm Beach County. VSA Florida Palm Beach County was founded in 1985 and is an af liate of VSA Florida and is sponsored in part by the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department. The mission of VSA Florida Palm Beach County is to create a society where people with disabilities can learn through, participate in, and enjoy the arts. For more information, please visit www.pbcparks.com/vsa. The Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center is located at 1977 College Drive in Belle Glade.

He spoke with many small groups of people that were gathered in various areas playing cards or just socializing. “These people aren’t hurting anyone,” he said. “They just want to live in peace.” One resident stated that she was too scared to let the deputies know things she may have witnessed. “That’s the beauty of Crime Stoppers,” said Lt. Luty. “You can call and no one will ever know about it. Crime Stoppers will not take your name and will give you a number so you can call back with any questions about your tip.” One deputy stated that they enjoyed going on the walks and interacting with the residents. “This is what it’s all about,” they said. “Getting back to the basics of old fashion police work and meeting the people.” The Crime Stoppers reporting systems are proven to guarantee tipsters’ identity when used properly. The program was built for the sole purpose of collecting anonymous tips from the public. Phone calls are strictly “in-bound” meaning the phones are designed not to make calls or to operate with caller ID. Once the person has called the hotline with their tip, they are assigned a number. The caller will use this number to collect their reward once the case is solved. Glades residents must collect their reward at an undisclosed bank in the West Palm Beach area within one year of the case being closed. Tips are forwarded to the detective working the case, who then follows up on the tip until it’s either deemed a dead-end or a good lead. Sometimes, tips may lead the detective to the person who actually called the tip in; this is highly coincidental. There is no way for them to know this information unless the caller admits to the reporting the tip. Tips can be submitted a number of ways: by calling 1-800-458-TIPS (8477), emailing info@ crimestopperspbc.com, texting text to tip@ cspbc.com, online at www.crimestopperspbc. com, and through the Crime Stopper’s free smartphone app. For more information on future Crime Stoppers walks, please contact Lt. Ed Luty at 561-9921122. TipsContinued From Page 1 PHOTO ARCHIVEStudents participated in last year’s successful VSA West Fest. The annual event will be making a return in early February.

Being prepared for winter means more than just stocking up on Vitamin C. It also means making sure one’s home is ready for the onslaught of cooler weather and potential power outages. Whether it’s just windy and blustery, or there’s an ice storm or blizzard, wicked weather can cause all sorts of damage or power outages. One of the most important things one can do to ensure a safe, happy and healthy winter is to equip one’s home with a portable generator, which can serve as a useful back up during an emergency or when a power source isn’t available. Don’t forget, with great power comes great responsibility. When using a generator, keep these tips in mind:  Always read and follow the manufacturer’s operating manual and instructions before running a generator.  Engines emit carbon monoxide (CO), a colorless and odorless poisonous gas. Don’t run a generator inside homes, garages, crawlspaces, basements, sheds or similar areas, even when using fans or opening doors and windows for ventilation. Locate the unit outside and direct its exhaust away from doors, windows, vents and other openings to reduce the risk of CO from accumulating and potentially being drawn towards occupied spaces. Install a CO detector in the home.  Connect electrically powered items to the generator using heavy duty extension cords speci cally designed for outdoor use. Ensure the wattage rating for each cord exceeds the total wattage of all appliances connected to it. Check that the entire length of each cord is free of cuts or tears and that the plug has all three prongs. Coiled cords can get hot, so always uncoil cords and lay them in at open locations. Connections for standby power to a home’s electrical system must use a listed transfer switch and be installed by an electrician. The connection must isolate the generator power from the utility power.  Get the right generator size for one’s needs. For example, a 5500 watt portable generator is ideal for powering a small appliance and a few household items, whereas a 6250 watt portable generator can handle even more. Use free online resources, such as a generator size and wattage calculators, to determine how much power one needs.  Don’t wait for an emergency to operate the generator. Perform a dry run to make sure one is familiar with its operation. Run the machine occasionally to keep the engine lubricated.  Keep a ashlight handy to nd one’s way to the generator. Store it conveniently, covered, to keep it free of dirt and debris.  Proper generator maintenance includes several steps. For every eight hours of operation, check the oil. Change the air cleaner every 25 hours and the oil every 50 hours. Replace the spark plug every 100 hours. This winter, be prepared. Be sure to have a working portable generator, and the know-how to run it properly. Is Your Home Ready for a Power Outage? 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 14 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 23, 2014 and 320,000 believe to have experienced traumatic brain injuries during their deployments. According to Norman Nicks, a member of the Legion, the majority of their earnings come from barbecues. The earnings are donated to the WWP and other local charities. This is the third year that the Legion, which is also a nonpro t organization, has donated to the WWP. “Many people have asked what the money from the barbecues goes to support: This is what you’re supporting,” said Mr. Nicks. He explained that the Ladies Auxiliary prepares “care packages” for the soldiers who are currently deployed. “Getting a little something from home means a lot to some kid on the other side of the world,” he said. According to Mr. Nicks, the Legion has donated $1,000 to pay for the shipping of the care packs in the past. “We are all veterans,” explains Mr. Nicks. “We are the fortunate ones. We are helping those who weren’t as fortunate.” Legion members state that with the help of local businesses and the community, they are able to sell anywhere from 500 to 750 dinners at each barbecue. In the course of the last year, the Legion has looked for other means to generate funds for the veterans. In addition to the barbecues, they have held a chili cook-off, steak nights, and other events. “Not only can you get the best barbecue in the Glades, said Mr. Nicks. “But you can help a great cause at the same time.” The American Legion will be holding what is calls its “Big BBQ” on February 15. This is group’s main event that they say generates the most of its funding to be able to make donations to the various charities. The Legion will also be raf ing off a variety of items. For more information regarding the event, please call 561-996-6444. W arriorsContinued From Page 1

Pursuant to the air quality regulations applicable to GHG sources set forth in Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 52, a GHG source is required to obtain an air quality permit before beginning construction. The EPA has completed review of the NPHC air permit application and supplemental materials and is soliciting comments on the Agency’s proposal to issue Permit No. PSD-EPA-R4016 to NHPC for their project, which is subject to the terms and conditions described in the permit. The EPA has prepared a draft permit for public comment, as well as a preliminary determination/statement of basis document that explains the basis of the permit conditions. These documents are available on the EPA Region 4’s website at: http://www.epa.gov/region4/air/permits/ghgpermits/ghgpermits.html.
