Palm Beach County Sheriff’s investigators are poring over the details of a recent shooting that left one man dead, to determine whether the shooter was right in utilizing lethal force. The shooting was reported around midnight on March 16, on Northeast Avenue H in Belle Glade. According to information released by Teri Barbera, PBSO’s media relations director, deputies arrived at the scene to locate one male deceased. Information gathered by responding detectives determined that both the homeowner and the deceased had been at the location earlier in the evening. Reportedly, the deceased had arrived at the home armed. According to the shooter, the man attempted to shoot him so he returned re in self defense, hitting and lethally injuring the man. According to Teri Barbera, the investigation, once complete, will be turned over to the State Attorney’s Ofce for further review. The identities of the shooter and the deceased were not released. BY MELISSA BELTZ e SunTorry Island will be receiving an environmental makeover in the coming months when 2,500 native plants will be restored as part of an Everglades restoration project funded by the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation, a Palm Beach County-based nonpro t committed to restoring the Everglades ecosystem through education and outreach programs. After receiving a $55,570 grant from the Commission of Environmental Cooperation’s North American Partnership for Environmental Community Action, the local nonpro t Arthur R. Marshall Foundation, in partnership with the South Florida Water Management District and the city of Belle Glade, will be planting 2,500 native cypress and pond apple trees on Torry Island in Belle Glade. The trees will restore wildlife habitat that has been lost due to development and will also serve to lter water pollutants in the fragile area, according to a press release from the North American Partnership. The goal of the project is to not only help restore the delicate Florida ecosystem, but to get the community involved to create advocates for Everglades preservation and restoration. The Foundation will be going to schools in the Glades area to teach students about the Everglades and BY AMANDA RAMOS-GUY Special to e SunAlcazar Academy, dubbed “Belle Glade Martial Arts” (BGMA) by the locals, has been open since Feb. 25, 2011. Even though the school is relatively new, it is quickly showing the results promised by the school’s owner, Master Joe Alcazar, when he opened for business two years ago. In March 2013, the school was invited to a tournament in Puerto Rico. Los Gallitos Olimpicos is one of the largest, most popular tournaments of its kind in the Caribbean. Teams come from all over the world to compete in the invitation-only competition. Belle Glade Martial Arts is the only team that has been chosen for the last two years to represent the United States of America. However, more importantly than representing the USA, the team seeks to bring recognition to the Glades for its champion ghters. The team’s goal has been straightforward from the start — make Belle Glade proud and bring as many medals as possible home to the Glades. In 2013, the team of 11 rst-time competitors won 17 medals with ve of them being gold. With close to 800 competitors and 84 teams, BGMA placed 18th overall and fth in the international category. This year’s results are nearly unheard of for second-year competitors.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonKilldeer breed from Newfoundland, the south rim of the Hudson Bay, as well as southern Yukon and Northwest Territories south to central Mexico and the Gulf Coast states. Most breeding in Florida occurs from March through July. The fall migration of Killdeer in Florida is normally July through November, and spring migration occurs mainly in March and April. Killdeer are a medium-sized slender and lanky plover with a long, pointed tail and long wings. Adults have a brown back and wings, a white belly and a white breast with two black bands. Their rump is an orange-buff. The face and cap are brown with a white forehead and they have an orange-red eye ring. They have many calls which range from sharp “dee” to a nervous, babbling thrill. They frequently use a “broken wing act” to distract predators from their nest, which is a shallow scrape, usually in bare sand or gravel, camou aged with stones and blades of grass. When the predator is far from the precious nest, the killdeer suddenly “heals” and ies away. Both parents share responsibility for the eggs, which usually hatch at 24 to 28 days. The chicks, which have almost the identical markings as the adults, are able to see and forage soon after hatching. They usually edge at 25 days old. Although Killdeer are considered shorebirds, they often live far from water and can be seen and heard in elds. Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers will host a birding trip on Saturday, March 22 at STA5 (Stormwater Treatment Area 5). Birders and/ or photographers will meet at 8:30 a.m. at the STA5 Deer Fence Canal Trailhead for the driving trip around the levees. To make a reservation, please email Margaret England at sta5birding@ embarqmail.com or call 863-674-0695. Everyone is invited to share their birdwatching experiences and post suggestions for featured birdwatching sites on the Hendry-Glades Audubon or The Clewiston News Facebook pages. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 HENDRY COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS NOTICE OF CHANGES TO LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE TO PROTECT USE OF COUNTY AIRPORTS e Board of County Commissioners of Hendry County, Florida proposes to adopt the following by ordinance: AN ORDINANCE OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF HENDRY COUNTY, FLORIDA, AMENDING THE HENDRY COUNTY CODE OF ORDINANCES, CHAPTER 1-53, ZONING, SPECIFICALLY SECTION 1-53-6.13 AIRPORTS, SECTION 1-53-3 ZONING DISTRICTS, TABLE 53-1, AND SECTION 1-53-4 DIMENSIONAL AND DENSITY REGULATIONS, TABLE 53-2; PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY; PROVIDING FOR CONFLICTS OF LAW; PROVIDING FOR CODIFICATION, INCLUSION IN CODE, AND SCRIVENERS ERRORS; AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

David and Goliath: Then and NowBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchThe well-known story about the battle between David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17) brought a commentary from one source that caught my attention. He proffered that “the smart money would have been on David” among the crowds that were standing around to witness the ght between the seasoned and giant warrior and the small Israeli boy with no armor. His comment piqued my curiosity and I read further; he made a good point. David did not let Goliath de ne the ght that was to be. David instead chose his own way of ghting against the seasoned warrior. His gift of a tunic and sword from Saul was rejected (1 Samuel 17:39); that was how the Philistine was going to ght, but he would not be the one to choose the weapons. Instead, ve stones and a sling would bring Goliath down. David knew his weapons and how best to use them -that makes all the difference. The motivations of the two also cannot be ignored. For Goliath, it was “simply another day at the of ce” (or battle eld in this case), and he would have fought the ght and then moved on to the next one (1 Samuel 17:33). For David, it was a matter of country, his people and his God that was at stake. “It’s not the size of the dog in the ght, but the size of the ght in the dog,” according to one aphorism; and that was the case here to change the odds. One physician pointed out that giant-sized persons tend to be clumsy, slow in motion (1 Samuel 17:4), and Samson was weighed down by armor, estimated to be about 125 pounds (ibid, v7) so that he needed a shield-bearer to go ahead of him. This will be a contest between a rapid, mobile, speedy contestant who can hit and run and then hit again, versus the lumbering giant who is slow, sluggish, hardly mobile – the lumbering tank against the well-placed RPG. In the downfall of Eve (Genesis 3), Satan causes Eve not to believe in herself, about what God has really said to her. He contradicts Eve and appeals to her senses (i.e. feelings) rather than her knowledge of God. David succumbs to none of these things. He knows his weapons; he accurately gauges his enemy, correctly assesses his strengths and weaknesses, he is committed to what he is doing at a very signi cant and profound level and he determines how the contest will take place. In our spiritual (and sometimes worldly) warfare, it is important to know our weapons and not let those who would defeat us determine how the battles will take place. I may not buy into your point of view, your way of looking at things, but my way may be no less valid than yours. I may listen to your persuasive arguments but that doesn’t mean I have no viewpoint of my own. If I believe in what I am doing or saying, I will stand my ground. I will not be sent away in defeat with self-doubts or succumb to doing things that I think are wrong. I will make the best use of the resources at my command -scriptures, reason, tradition, faith that has stood the test of time -and in secular matters, likewise, the best resources I can gather. If I feel like the underdog, it will not matter, I will do my best and lay it on the line. The Biblical accounts of what took place in times gone by are not merely, in my opinion, historical records, they have much to teach us. They were about real life then, they are about real life now. They are also a source of encouragement when we feel overwhelmed and want to give up. Sometimes it takes more than a cursory reading, but searching for what God may be saying is well worth it all. If you’re doing God’s work, if you’re right, if you’re not afraid: don’t give up. God will sustain and victory will come. If you would like to contact Rev. Thomas about this column or have an idea for one, please send an email to fatherthomas@ saintmartins-clewiston.org.Ministerial AssociationCLEWISTON — The Clewiston Ministerial Association meets at 12 p.m. on the rst Tuesday of every month in the Hendry Regional Medical Center conference room.

Brumback Primary Care Clinics announced the launch of its new website at www.BrumbackClinics.org. Visitors to the new site can nd helpful information about each of the four clinics in Palm Beach County, which are located in Belle Glade, Lantana, West Palm Beach and Delray Beach. The site features the clinics’ addresses, hours of operation, maps and directions and Palm Tran routes. “We are pleased to be able to provide our patients with information that will help them quickly nd a clinic in their area when they have a medical need,” said Christopher F. Irizarry, MPA, FQHC executive director. The C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics, which are operated by the Health Care District of Palm Beach County as Federally Quali ed Health Centers (FQHC), opened last summer and averaged 4,150 medical visits each month. The new website also features information about the adult and pediatric services offered at each of the clinics, which are provided by highlytrained, quali ed and professional medical staff who are Board-certi ed in the primary care specialties of Family Practice, General Practice, Pediatrics and Mental Health Services. “The goal of the C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics is that our patients will make the clinics their medical home for all of their health care needs,” said Ronald J. Wiewora, MD, MPH, the Health Care District’s chief executive of cer and chief medical of cer. “Our focus is on providing the highest quality health care to Palm Beach County residents, regardless of their ability to pay.” The four clinics serve patients with or without insurance Monday through Friday in all four locations and accept patients who walk in. The clinics recommend, however, that patients make an appointment by calling 561-642-1000. Patients can visit the new website prior to their visit and download a registration form to complete and bring with them to their appointment. For more information, visit www.BrumbackClinics.org. C.

With fewer competitors, the team of seven students and one master won 12 medals, a grand champion trophy and placed second in the international category. The victory came as a big surprise to Master Joe Alcazar. “I really did not expect to win second place. We were packing our things and getting ready to leave for our ight when I heard the announcement made that we won,” he said. “I am surprised because there were larger teams with more experience than us. I thought St. Maarten’s team won because they had a team of 50 competitors. “This was our 21st anniversary, Master Alcazar with only a handful of athletes managed to take second place in his second year of attendance,” said Master Bill Za ropoulos, the tournament’s founder. “On behalf of all of us in Puerto Rico, we would like to congratulate Master Alcazar, his athletes and their parents for such outstanding results. We will see them again in next year’s tournament.” “I don’t see what my students are; I see what they can be,” said Master Alcazar. The competitors and their medals are as follows: Master Joe Alcazar Gold Susan Ayala Bronze Christian Gracias Bronze (2) Edwin Alvarez Gold and Bronze Jose Cabrera Bronze Arturo Seefoo Gold Abel Lopez Gold, Silver and Grand Champion trophy BGMAContinued From Page 1 Florida’s ecosystem before the project begins on Torry Island. Nancy Marshall, president of the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation, said the goal of the project is to increase knowledge of the history of the Everglades so that the community’s children can become “stewards of the environment.” “One out of two of us depend on the Everglades for water. It’s important for us to know where the water comes from,” said Marshall. The Foundation will be at area schools beginning next fall to teach students grade-appropriate lessons on the Everglades and Everglades restoration. At this point, the Foundation is not sure which schools will be involved, nor which grade levels. Its goal, said Marshall, is to present to 30 classrooms in ten different schools. The tree planting is scheduled to begin sometime in January of next year. January, Marshall said, is always good for tree planting. When the project begins on Torry Island, the entire community is invited to participate. Marshall said lunch will be served -a lesson they learned years ago when they hosted a similar project on Torry Island and did not factor in lunch for the participants. The project is an exciting opportunity for the community to come together and do something good for its future. “‘Our soil is our future.’ Who knows it better than Belle Glade and our whole western community,” said Marshall.

There were a total of 53 teams from every corner of Florida participating in the event. Students were required to rank or place animals in accordance to their value and quality based on visual indicators. The students had to judge steers, hogs and sheep. Aside from placing animals, students also had to identify external parts, whole sale cuts of meat and various breeds of each species. The Glades Day FFA team has been working very hard to prepare for the contest. Team members have practiced in Gainesville, Daytona, Palm Beach, Okeechobee and countless hours at home. Their hard work paid off by placing seventh in the state. This is an awesome accomplishment considering this is only the second year the team has had a middle school agriscience program. As a result of participating in the contest, the students have traveled the state and met many other students with similar interest. They have also met several individuals in the livestock industry and been exposed to multiple career options for their future. Contests such as livestock judging are one way 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.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee March 20, 2014 THE GLADES INITIATIVE, INC.Glades Initiative’s rst Cooking Matters Nutrition Education Course was held on March 5 at the Pahokee Recreation Center for Spanish-speaking clients of the Bridges of Pahokee. Bilingual instructors Jose Rodriguez (culinary), of Royal Palm Beach, and Cecilia Kostadinov (nutrition), of Port St. Lucie, are volunteering their time to teach the six-week program. The Belle Glade Girl Scouts also assisted in class preparation and implementation. Cooking Matters is a groundbreaking nutrition education program that follows a national model with research-based best practices from Share Our Strength. With six specialized curricula offered in both English and Spanish, the free course includes hands-on meal preparation where participants learn that cooking healthy food is simple, enjoyable, delicious and affordable. The course covers basic nutrition, food safety, knife skills, reading ingredient labels and food budgeting -making a healthy meal for a family of four on a $10 budget. One of the classes includes a tour of the local grocery store, which always proves to be an eye opening experience for participants. During the store tour, participants learn to read food labels, compare prices, nd whole grain foods and gain other tips on shopping smart. Through the Cooking Matters program, the Glades Initiative is improving access to affordable food, family shopping/food budgeting skills, eating habits and promoting healthy living habits for Glades residents. FLIPANY, Inc. (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth) has been identi ed by Share Our Strength to implement their Cooking Matters program throughout Florida as part of their No Kid Hungry campaign. The Glades Initiative serves as a satellite site of FLIPANY to offer the program in the Glades. The Glades Initiative will implement several Cooking Matters classes in the Glades communities this year. Currently, there are 22 volunteers for the program to include culinary instructors, nutrition instructors, and many class assistants. In spite of the large number of volunteers, the program is in need of volunteers with speci c skills to include culinary and/or nutrition expertise, and volunteers that live in the Glades and are bilingual in Spanish and Haitian-Creole. A volunteer or two with all of the above skills would be ideal for the program. Many of our volunteers come from The Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. The Glades Initiative is excited to partner with the sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha as they commit to their sorority initiatives of general health and wellness addressing heart disease, kidney disease and diabetes, and global poverty by volunteering as course instructors and class assistants for the program. The Glades Initiative began its second Cooking Matters course on March 11 to clients of the Arc of the Glades. “We are excited to begin our Cooking Matters courses,” says Karis Engle, Glades Initiative’s president/ CEO. “Preparing healthy and affordable meals at home is an important step in improving our overall health.” The Glades Initiative Offers First Cooking Matters ClassEmpowering families at risk of hunger with the skills, knowledge and con dence to make healthy and affordable meals SUBMITTED PHOTOBelle Glade girl scout Angel Guerra and troop leader Valentina Guerra.

Rana Hilliard delivered a prepared public speech titled, “I am a lucky girl,” to a panel of judges. The speech outlined her life on a farm and all the opportunities that rural life offers. Rana worked hard rehearsing and memorizing the speech, and her hard work paid off. She won rst place in the district and will advance on to the state level competition, which will be held this coming summer during the state FFA convention. Dillon McGahee also competed in the District FFA Contest. Dillon competed in tractor operation, which required him to pass a safety test, answer oral questions and drive a course with a trailer attached. Dillon won the very challenging contest, and the judges stated they had never seen any student score a perfect score with no infractions! Dillon will also be representing Glades Day FFA in the state tractor driving contest, which will be held in early April. Dillon and the FFA chapter would like to express their appreciation to Everglades Farm Equipment for loaning the tractor which Dillon used to prepare for the contest. The contests that the FFA members participate in are designed to develop life skills that will make the students more competitive and marketable in life.

BY MELISSA BELTZ e SunSitting unassuming on a corner street in Pahokee is a small, white building with a large screened-in porch. On occasion, passersby can see the building’s residents relaxing on that porch, rocking slowly in a wooden rocking chair or sitting quietly on a bench watching the world go by. If those same passersby peeked into the white building’s window, they might see a group of 20 or so sitting down to a hot lunch or singing gospel music in a semicircle. The little white building on the corner houses the Alzheimer’s Care Community of Pahokee, a day-care center for area residents living with Alzheimer’s and related neurocognitive disorders. The center opens its doors at 7:30 a.m., inviting the patients in with a cup of coffee, while its highly trained staff of nurses check their vitals before the day begins. Fast-paced physical and mental activities are completed throughout the day to stimulate both mind and body. Listening and singing along to music, painting and making crafts or listening to a special guest are all activities that patients enjoy throughout the day. The activities are completed in 30-minute intervals to keep the patients moving and engaged, with a break for lunch in between. The activities are facilitated by a specially trained staff and offer individuals living with Alzheimer’s the kind of stimulation their minds need to maintain a high quality of life. The patients in the center are all Glades-area residents, and most have grown up with each other and went to high school together. The new program manager for the center said the patients often sit and talk about “the good ole days,” and even reminisce about school dances they went to and places they frequented on the weekends. They may not be able to remember what they had for breakfast, said the program manager, but they remember hanging out together when they were young. The kind of camaraderie that the small-town center offers makes it a unique place for Alzheimer’s patients to spend their days. The Pahokee day center is a branch of Alzheimer’s Care Community, a nonpro t organization started in the late 1990s by local residents who felt there was a need for specialized treatment services for individuals affected by Alzheimer’s and related disorders in South Florida. Mary Barnes, CEO of Alzheimer’s Care Community, said the organization focuses not only on the patients but on their caregivers, as well. The center offers a place for patients to interact and socialize, while giving caregivers a small respite from the duties of taking care of their loved one. And, since the center is operated as a nonpro t, patients and their families can expect a level of care that is distinct from other organizations. “We are a charity. We use a soft glove when it comes to helping families. We’re not a government agency ... so we don’t have the same restrictions,” said Barnes. Along with offering their services with compassion and competence, safety is of the utmost importance to the center. The center is locked at all times and there is a nurse on the oor 100 percent of the time, said Barnes, adding that having a medical eye focused on the patients at all times is important. The center also provides special services, like a GPS wristband that offers 24-hour coverage of the patient’s location, in case that patient ever wandered from home. The GPS service is provided at no charge through the center, which also helps patients and their families apply for grants if the family cannot afford the cost of attendance themselves. The center is currently operating under capacity and can accept more patients for its day-care services. Individuals who are interested in learning more about the Pahokee center, or Alzheimer’s Care Community in general, should visit their website at www. alzcare.org or call the Pahokee center directly at 561-924-7283. “Everybody deserves the highest level of care as they go through this disease process and that building [the Pahokee center] exempli es that,” said Barnes.
