BY SHARON JOHNSON-GODFREY Rosenwald Elementary SchoolMore than 600 Palm Beach County students left for the nation’s capital on the morning of Jan. 30 for the AAA Palm Beach County Annual Safety Patrol trip. Six participants and one chaperone from Rosenwald Elementary School left the Tri-Rail Mangonia Park Station Thursday morning to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime educational program in Washington, D.C. The chaperone was Mrs. Johnson-Godfrey and the six participants were Zaryiah Bethea, Anai Fuller, Takiah Brown, Brian Jaime, Jalen Brown and Emmanuel McClain. The trip included tours of:  The Capitol: seeing the Rotunda and the Senate and House chambers where Congress meets.  White House: visiting the most famous house in America – home to the president and the executive branch of the government.  Lincoln Memorial: paying tribute to the 16th president of the United States and reading his famous Gettysburg Address  Arlington National Cemetery: seeing the Changing of the Guard ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Eternal Flame at JFK’s gravesite and the Challenger Memorial.  Smithsonian Museums: visiting the many Smithsonian museums located on the Mall in D.C., including the Air and Space Museum, Museum of Natural History, National American Art Museum and many more.  Memorials: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (The Wall-USA), Thomas Jefferson Memorial and the WWII Memorial.  The Supreme Court, Washington Monument and the Library of Congress.

The 2013 Annual Report continued with the theme of “Perseverance ... Our Key Element!” All stakeholders are encouraged to view this comprehensive annual report at the following URL/domain link: http://www.palmbeachschools.org/annualreport/2013wellness/index. html. The purpose of the Wellness Promotion Policy Annual Report is to continue building on the district and community wellness journey, which began eight years ago. This annual report is comprised of six main areas: Introduction, Nutrition Education, Physical Activity, Other School/Department-Based Activities, Nutrition Standards and Promotion and United Resources, all of which identify the direct correlation to the eight Coordinated School Health (CSH) components. Each contributor focused on “perseverance” as the core theme of the annual report.

Anyone, anywhere in the world can count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count and enter their sightings at www.BirdCount. org. The information, gathered by tens of thousands of volunteers, helps track the health of bird populations at a scale that would not otherwise be possible. The GBBC is a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society with partner Bird Studies Canada. Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers will enter data for participants who don’t have internet access. Please contact Margaret England to request a copy of the tally sheet which would need to be returned to Hendry-Glades Audubon before March 1. Cooper’s HawkThe Cooper’s hawk is a crow-sized raptor with a slender body, broad rounded wings and a very long, rounded tail. They have a apap-glide ight pattern. Females are larger and more powerfully built than the males. Adult plumage is steely blue-gray above with orange and white barred underparts. Juveniles are brown above with a golden buff head and wellde ned, dark brown streaks on their upper breast. The oldest known Cooper’s Hawk was 20 years and four months old. These birds are usually silent. Their most common call is a loud, grating “cak-cak-cak” made by either sex while defending their nest site or during courtship. In the eastern United States, they are found hunting for birds in deep forests, leafy subdivisions and backyards. Cooper’s Hawks capture birds with their feet, which they then kill by repeated squeezing. They have also been reported drowning their prey. Males usually take smallto medium-sized songbirds, while females prey upon larger birds, like doves, Pileated Woodpeckers and crows. In Florida, most Cooper’s Hawk nesting occurs from April through July in the northern two-thirds of the state. The male builds a nest 25 to 50 feet above the ground in pine, oaks or other trees growing near a clearing. The nest is completed in about two weeks with very little help from the female. This sticknest, about 27 inches, in diameter is lined with bark akes and green twigs. The female incubates three to ve pale-blue to greenish eggs for 30 to 36 days. The male provides most of the food for the female and hatchlings until the young are ready to edge at 30 to 34 days of age. The community is invited to participate in upcoming birding trips on Feb. 15, 16 and 17 at STA-5 (Stormwater Treatment Area 5). A few volunteers will be working on the Great Backyard Bird Count survey during the day. Birders and/ or photographers will meet at 8:30 a.m. at the STA-5 Deer Fence Canal Trailhead. To make a reservation or to request a GBBC tally sheet, please email Margaret England at sta5birding@embarqmail.com or by phone at 863-674-0695 or 863517-0202.

"The two January events highlight the everpresent challenge of balancing our water supply mission with essential ood control," said Susan Sylvester, chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. "In the dry season, a portion of the rain falling over a large area during several days can be stored in the system. Deluges along the coast require intense ood control operations." On Jan. 9 and 10, approximately 15 inches of rain fell in just three hours in the Boynton Beach area. This stormwater was discharged to tide to help alleviate local ooding, which can occur during intense storms. On Jan. 29, 30 and 31, a widespread rainfall event dropped more than two inches across South Florida, with up to ve inches in localized areas. Water managers were able to capture some of this water in storage for the remainder of the dry season. District-wide, 3.60 inches of rain fell in January, representing 187 percent of average, or 1.67 inches above average for the month. Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties, along with the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA), were the wettest portions of South Florida for the month. Totals included: Palm Beach: 7.02 inches; 237 percent of average; 4.06 inches above average Martin and St. Lucie: 6.89 inches; 327 percent of average; 4.78 inches above average East EAA: 3.96 inches; 228 percent of average; 2.22 inches above average Lake Okeechobee stood at 13.95 NGVD on Feb. 3, which is 0.70 inches below its historic average for this date. The lake received 2.53 inches of direct rainfall in January, representing 190 percent of average or 0.84 inches above average.Dry Season ForecastSouth Florida’s Dry Season November to May About 18 inches of rainfall is the average. May and October are important transition months. March, April and May are the driest months because evaporation is highest. Highlights of the overall 2013/14 South Florida dry season forecast from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate Prediction Center include: Below-normal precipitation. A possibility of near to slightly above-normal temperatures. For reference, South Florida precipitation in an average dry season is 12 to 15 inches in the interior/west; 15 to 21 inches in the east.

SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchI have closed many a Church service with a benediction, including the words from Paul to the Philippians: “…the peace of God which passes all understanding will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” (chapter 4, verse 7). Certainly there does not seem to be any peace on the horizon. The Mideast seems to be in turmoil once more; problems of terrorist acts bring Kenya to the fore, Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan are the origins of regular reports of trouble. This peace that so many of us want to see seems quite elusive. As I read further, Paul admonishes those in Philippi to hold to “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me, put in practice. And the God of peace will be with you” (verses 8-9). It seems Paul is saying that peace begins within us. Paul’s life was certainly not without problems; nor was the Old Testament era a time without wars, conquests, captivity or struggles. Worldly peace certainly is something that “passes understanding.” As I re ected on Paul’s advice, he talked about our individual actions, thoughts, deeds, thinking on what is true or noble or right or pure or admirable. Concentrating on things as they should be, can be a source of peace. Doing what is right and not getting dragged down by things that go against us will keep us in a more peaceful frame of mind. Paul recognized that peace begins, and can end, within each of us. There may be little we can do to change what is going on around us, but we can change what goes on within. I can choose to make myself happy or unhappy, at peace within or burdened with worries over which I may not really have any control. One of our great thinkers was reported to have said,“I worried about many things in life, most of which never happened,” and pointed out the futility of dwelling on negatives by his wry comment. Mark, likewise, points out that it is what is within, “For from within men’s hearts, come evil thoughts…” (Mark 7:21). Scriptures provide us with the answer to the prayer, “Lord, change the world, beginning with me.” The peace that passes understanding begins within; when it happens to enough of us, the world will change. In the meantime, the peace which we seek must not depend on what’s going on around us, we won’t nd it in the news or in daily confrontations. Rather, it will come from dwelling on right things, peaceful things, loving things and persons. One of my mentors wrote about a minister who was going to visit a church member and arrived at the gate to the pathway going up to his front porch. There was a large dog just inside of the gate. He called to the member sitting on the porch and asked, “Will the dog bite?” The owner replied, “Only if you’re afraid of him.” As for me, I like dogs and in over 40 years of visiting homes, have had two occassions where one tried to bite. Once when as I was walking up a set of wooden stairs with the dog laying underneath. He was too lazy to get up and tried to bite me through my shoes. Useless! Another time was with a heavily gloved hand on a cold winter day; the result was some pressure on my ngers, but nothing more than a warning from a disturbed canine. Peace is like that; it’s what is within that determines what happens to us and whether we have serenity or are riddled with anxieties. Dogs read us well; I hope to send them a message of peace from within when I encounter them. It seems I’m capable of doing it! We can do it in other areas of our lives too.

Park Station and then to Washington D.C. For many of the kids, it was their rst time ever being so far away from home. Grandparent Delores Bethea had a hard time seeing her granddaughter off as she held up the school bus saying her goodbyes. "I don't care if you come home with no clothes Zee, just come back home to me, Zee. ... I love you," said Delores Bethea as her granddaughter boarded the bus. As the school bus hit the road, students and families waved goodbye, and despite some sadness, parents knew it would be a fun, educational trip the kids would remember forever. I was as excited as the kids because I knew they were going to have fun. When given the task of being the Safety Patrol Sponsor for my school, my number-one goal was to have our students attend this once-in-a-lifetime educational program to the nation's capital. Once attending the trip was certain, my next goal was to attend at a time our students would have a chance of seeing snow for the rst time in their lives. Not only did our students see snow, on our last day in Washington, they saw snow urries falling, too. This trip exceeded my expectations for our students and I will always remember the memories we created. I extend a special heartfelt thank you to the many people who made this once-in-a-lifetime educational program to the capital, possible for the Rosenwald students. Those special people include: students who participated in the Yankee Candle Fundraiser; Rosenwald staff who supported the fundraiser and/or gave donations; Pioneer Park Elementary teachers Ms. Sharon Singleton and Mrs. Jeannie Brown for sponsoring one of our students; Mayor of the city of South Bay, Dr. Esther E. Berry; and Commissioners Shanique S. Scott, Taranza McKelvin and Shirley WalkerTurner for sponsoring two of our students. Thank you so much for your generous support.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 13 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee February 6, 2014 the volunteers earned PBSO a national award for excellence in volunteerism from the International Association of Chiefs of Police. On any given day, the PBSO’s volunteers patrol communities in marked cars to assist citizens in need and to alert deputies about suspicious activities. They are attending monthly neighborhood meetings and training to be ready to direct traf c on major roadways when emergencies occur. Volunteers are riding bicycles through communities, talking to residents and serving as liaisons for the agency. They also assist motorists in distress and help out with traf c crashes. In all, PBSO has 12 volunteer groups, including Citizen Observer Patrol (COP), Volunteer Emergency Response Team (VERT) and Parking Enforcement Specialist (PES). They are out in residential neighborhoods, shopping centers and government buildings, as well as in the communiyt’s waterways, parks and airports. Coming from all walks of life, including the elds of law, education and medicine, these volunteers know their communities better than any one else. Many have lived here for a long time and they are passionate about keeping their streets free of crime. So who better to patrol a neighborhood than the people who live there? All of the volunteers are initially trained for their duties and they get additional training over time so they are pro cient at their responsibilities. To become a PBSO volunteer, individuals must be older than 18, be a U.S. citizen and not have a felony arrest or conviction. Depending on the unit the volunteer applies for, there will be other requirements. PBSO and Sheriff Bradshaw hope individuals will consider being a part of the volunteer units. Volunteering not only creates a great feeling of accomplishment, but also helps Palm Beach County be a safer place. To apply for the Volunteer Program, please apply in person at Volunteer Services, 2601 South Military Trail, Suite 29, in West Palm Beach. SAFETYContinued From Page 1 COMING FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE, INCLUDING THE FIELDS OF LAW, EDUCATION AND MEDICINE, OUR VOLUNTEERS KNOW THEIR COMMUNITIES BETTER THAN ANY ONE ELSE. MANY HAVE LIVED THERE FOR A LONG TIME AND THEY ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT KEEPING THEIR STREETS FREE OF CRIME. SO WHO BETTER TO PATROL A NEIGHBORHOOD THAN THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE? The School Food Service Department is excited to announce that Farm to School strawberries are back. The deliciously sweet and super popular fruit will be available this week in all schools across the district. Due to varying delivery schedules, some schools will begin offering the strawberries as soon as Wednesday, Feb. 5 with all schools serving them by Friday, Feb. 7. The department’s rst offering, close to 40,000 servings of strawberries, were ordered district-wide.

Feb. in Florida is Fruitful with Farm to School Strawberries Palm Beach County is answering President Obama’s call for creating community solutions about mental health and its impact on the youth. A series of community conversation events titled “#OK2TalkPBC is being held throughout the county. All members of the community are encouraged to attend and share stories and ideas to prevent youth struggling with mental illness from needlessly entering the legal system. The second in a series of #OK2TalkPBC events was held on Feb. 4 at Palm Beach State College in Belle Glade. Information gathered during the events will be used to create an action plan to break the connection between mental illness and the legal system. The action plan will be unveiled at the #OK2Talk Palm Beach County Conference on April 25. Belle Glade parents, students, teachers, police of cers, consumers, policymakers, rst responders, doctors, mental health professionals and faith advisors attended. The Mental Health Association of Palm Beach County (MHAPBC) organized the Belle Glade town hall conversation to spark dialogue that helped break the silence around mental illness that prevents early identi cation. One-inve young people have a mental illness, but about half never get treatment. The average age for a person to begin struggling with mental illness is 14, but it usually takes 10 years or more before that person starts getting help. Early identi cation of problems is needed to help avoid tragedies, such as school shootings, and help people recover to live happy and productive lives.
