BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe King Rail is found across the eastern half of North America from the Atlantic coast to the Great Plains and from the Gulf of Mexico to southern Canada. Its breeding range is largely restricted to the coastal plain from Texas through the lower Mississippi River Valley and all of Florida. It can also be found close the Atlantic coastline north to New Jersey. John James Audubon called the Kind Rail “Elegant Rails,” while Illinois farmers nicknamed it the “stage driver,” because of its “chckchck” call, which reminded them of a rider urging on horses. This secretive bird is more often heard than seen. They are the largest rail found in North America. These slender birds are about 15 inches long, with a 20-inch wingspan, and weigh about 13 ounces. King Rails have a small head and neck, hefty bill, sturdy legs and large feet with un-webbed toes. They look like a large chicken or large shorebird. Their neck and belly are rusty brown and contrast with the black and white barring in the sides. The upper parts are dark brown streaked with yellow. A rusty brown strip runs from the bill over the grown and down the nape of its gray face. Its plumage is rust-colored, unlike the gray or brown Clapper Rail. King Rails prefer living in extensive wetlands with shallow water and a variety of plant species, such as grasses, cattails, sedges and millet. These marsh birds prefer fresh water, but can also be found in brackish or tidal wetlands where they forage for aquatic animals and insects, and occasionally small mammals and acorns. During fall and winter, they eat more aquatic plant seeds, including millet and rice. In Florida, King Rails lay eggs as early as January, but most are laid between February and June. They form monogamous pairs who will defend their territory from other rails. The male will present its mate with food during courtship. Both sexes construct the grassy nest that is usually located in the center of a marsh. It is hidden in dense grasses and sedges and is elevated about damp ground or shallow water. Their young need drier areas for foraging. The pair incubates 10 to 12 light, yellowish eggs marked with small brown spots for 21 to 23 days. The young are dependent on their parents for food for the next nine weeks and usually edge at about 63 days of age.InformationIf you would like to participate in a bird trip to STA-5 (Stormwater Treatment Area 5) email Margaret England at sta5birding@embarqmail. com. Include your name and contact information, including an emergency cell number, the date you would like to attend and the number of participants in your party.

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATIONThe Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and our local safety partners remind motorists and students to take extra traf c safety precautions this summer. During the summer, children are at increased risk of transportation-related injuries from pedestrian, bicycle and motor vehicle crashes. FDOT offers these tips for making summer safer for everyone.Tips for MotoristsSlow down and obey all traf c laws, speed limits and traf c signals. Keep an eye out for children walking or bicycling in the street, especially where there are no sidewalks. Be alert for children playing and for those who may dart into the street without looking for traf c. When backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage, watch for children walking, biking, skating or skateboarding.Tips for ParentsBe a good role model. Always buckle up, always wear a helmet when biking, and always follow pedestrian safety rules. Supervise young children when they are walking, biking or skating. Provide your children with bright clothing so motorists can easily see them. Make sure your child is properly buckled into the appropriate child safety seat in the back seat. Safety experts advise that all children under the age of 13 should ride in the back seat. Make sure your teen driver understands and obeys all state traf c laws.Tips for Youngsters Always buckle up when riding in a car. Ride in the back seat, it’s the safest place for young people. Always wear a helmet and follow traf c safety rules when riding your bike. Learn and practice safety rules for pedestrians. It’s extremely important for you to use the sidewalk where available, look left-right-left when crossing the road and always walk facing traf c. Always cross at crosswalks, obey all traf c signs and traf c lights. Teen drivers should avoid speeding and minimize distractions (texting, talking on cell phones, eating, adjusting the radio) while driving. Never overload your vehicle. Require everyone riding with you to use safety belts. Teen drivers should be good role models for younger brothers, sisters and friends, and should help them learn and follow traf c safety rules.

This compares with the national average that has not moved in the last week to $3.68/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 18.2 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 1.9 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 3.5 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 17.7 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “Just in time for the July 4 weekend, it appears the national average has hit a new 2014 high in the last week,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “The good news is that we’re seeing signs that the peak price we hit last week is starting to unwind, but with July 4 just days away, motorists shouldn’t be expecting any big retreats in price before the weekend. The situation in Iraq has cooled, and if the situation remains calm and hurricane season continues to be a non-story, motorists will continue to see a slow decline in prices. But while the situation is slowly turning around and prices declining, it will still be the most expensive July 4 at the pump since 2008,” DeHaan said. Gas Price Update

GLADE VIEW ELEMENTARYOn Friday, May 30, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students from Glade View Elementary school in Belle Glade had the opportunity to come face-to-face with several exotic animals from around the world without ever leaving their campus! This exciting animal adventure was made possible by the Palm Beach County Zoo and a STEAM grant awarded through the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fund. STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. STEAM grants are awarded to organizations that provide programs for the arts, culture, environment, education and community development. Innovative educational programs, such as the Palm Beach County Zoo’s Distance Learning Program, promote analytical thinking and oral language skills in young children. Prior to the visit, students learned about zoo animals and spoke with zoo personnel via interactive teleconferencing. Imagine their excitement when they saw some of the same animals up close and personal at school! Ms. Amy, the friendly and super knowledgeable zoo ambassador, brought a parrot from the Amazon, a bluetongued skink from Australia and an African hingeback tortoise for them to see. The students were fascinated at seeing the parrot crack and eat seeds, and were captivated by the fact that lizards can shed their tails to escape from danger. They were amazed to witness the tortoise walking across a table, but the highlight of the day was when they were allowed to pet him. Students made colorful, personalized zoo visors to wear during the program. Their on-site eld trip culminated with them selecting and painting their own plaster zoo animal and having fun in the sun. PBC SCHOOL DISTRICTTwo Glades-area graduating seniors have been named Gates Millennium Scholars. They, along with four other Palm Beach County students and 954 students nationwide, will be awarded a good-through-graduation scholarship that can be used to pursue a degree in any undergraduate major at the accredited college or university of his or her choice.

9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 3, 2014 Black Nurses Association, the Belle Glade Chamber of Commerce, Lakeside Medical Center and government of cials from the tri-cities and Palm Beach County. Organized by the Sickle Cell Foundation of Palm Beach County, the purpose of the summit was to raise awareness of the challenge the disease poses to the community, and was held in Belle Glade at the Lake Shore Civic Center because of the unique situation Glades-area residents face when trying to receive expert care for sickle cell disease. Sickle cell disease is a group of inherited red blood cell disorders that cause the red blood cells to become hard and sticky and to resemble the c-shape of a sickle. People with sickle cell disease often face a shortage of red blood cells, due to the irregularly shaped cells dying early; people with sickle cell disease may often experience pain and infections because the sickle-shaped cells can get stuck in the body's blood vessels. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), one in every 500 African Americans has sickle cell disease and one in every 36,000 Hispanics has sickle cell disease; a great deal more carry the sickle cell trait, which can be passed to children by their parents. According to the CDC, one in 12 African Americans carry the sickle cell trait. Ralph Cheriza, outreach educator for the Sickle Cell Foundation of Palm Beach County, warns that the statistics used to describe the number of Americans affected by the disease are out of date and could be much higher. "Because of population growth, it is believed that those numbers are way out dated," said Cheriza. "We're still looking at those numbers to see how many people are really affected because we think the number is much higher than that." Not only have statistics not been updated for numerous years, the Sickle Cell Treatment Act, which provided funding for sickle cell research and treatment options, including reimbursements for Medicaid patients to seek necessary treatments, expired in 2009. Now, with the number of sickle cell cases believed to be on the rise, and federal funding for certain treatment services all dried up, patients may nd it dif cult or nearly impossible to seek the help they need. This is especially true for patients in the Glades area, who not only face nancial hardships but geographical impediments to services, due to the lack of services in the area. This issue was one of the main topics addressed at the summit last week, but according to Cheriza, community leaders and organizations will continue to make sickle cell disease a priority in the Glades. "There were a good number of people who were there [at the summit] and we discussed a couple of things, including the lack of health care professionals specializing in sickle cell disease in Western Palm Beach County," said Cheriza. "And one thing that came out of the summit was a decision to set up a committee at the hospital to work on emergency care for sickle cell patients and to nd a hematologist who can provide services [in the Glades area]." Cheriza said sickle cell patients are often hospitalized due to complications, and having a team in the Emergency Room who understands the needs of those patients is critical. "Sickle cell disease is challenging because all a patient can do is manage the symptoms. There is no cure except for bone marrow transplants, and because of a lack of funding, researchers haven't explored any more options," said Cheriza. Cheriza explained that the main treatment options for patients with sickle cell disease are pain management, using both prescription and over-the-counter medications, blood transfusions and penicillin is often given to children with the disease. Sickle cell patients are prone to infections and severe pain, said Cheriza, and often must take prescription pain medications daily. The challenge is that patients can eventually develop an immunity to the medications. When sickle cell patients seek different medications from a doctor or hospital, health care providers may see those patients as mere "drug seekers," if the health care provider is unfamiliar with sickle cell disease, its treatments and complications, said Cheriza. Not only is nding the right treatment a challenge, paying for that treatment is often even more challenging. "Even with the new health care law, patients end up with high premiums. Few are able to get into Medicaid and many are not even quali ed, so when they go into the private health insurance market, they still have to deal with high premiums," said Cheriza. The Sickle Cell Foundation is continuously working towards freeing up access to treatment for sickle cell patients, and Cheriza encourages patients to contact the Foundation for personalized counseling and case management. "The life expectancy for men with sickle cell disease is 42 years old and 48 for women. With case management, life expectancy is longer. Get in touch with us and we will help," said Cheriza. The Sickle Cell Foundation of Palm Beach County and Treasure Coast is based out of West Palm Beach, with the main of ce located at 1600 North Australian Avenue. The Foundation's main phone number is 561-833-3113, however, patients in Western Palm Beach County are encouraged to call 561-983-8619 to learn more about sickle cell disease and their treatment options. "The thing we are really trying to get people to understand is that instead of being passive, we need to be proactive. We encourage people to know their status and get tested. We want people to become advocates for sickle cell disease," said Cheriza. "We want people to understand the complications, and we want Congress to take action on the Sickle Cell Treatment Act so funding can become available for services that need to be provided."

11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 3, 2014 FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHTo help protect consumers and inform them about the risks of indoor tanning, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is strengthening its regulation of sunlamp products, such as tanning booths and tanning beds, and requiring that they carry a visible, black-box warning that sunlamp products should not be used on people under 18 years of age. Using sunlamp products, such as tanning beds or tanning booths, increases the risk of skin damage, skin cancer and eye injury, according to the FDA and numerous other health organizations. A particularly dangerous result is melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer. According to the American Academy of Dermatology and the World Health Organization, indoor tanning heightens the risk of developing melanoma by 59 percent, and the risk goes up with each use. Despite these risks, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS), thousands of Americans will opt for an indoor tan. The ACS estimates that nearly 13,000 people die each year from skin cancers — approximately 9,700 of which are from melanoma. The ACS predicts that in 2014, melanoma will account for 76,100 cases of skin cancer. To help protect consumers and inform them about the risks of indoor tanning, FDA is changing its regulation of sunlamp products and UV lamps intended for use in sunlamp products. The changes strengthen the oversight of these devices and require that sunlamp products carry a visible, black-box warning stating that they should not be used on people under the age of 18. This change is due to concerns that the effects of UV radiation add up over time, and children and teenagers who are exposed to indoor UV radiation are at greater risk for skin and eye damage. “There is increasing evidence that tanning in childhood to early adult life increases the risk of skin cancer, including melanoma,” says FDA dermatologist Markham Luke, M.D., Ph.D. In fact, according to an overview of studies published in the journal Pediatrics, melanoma is the second most common cancer in women in their 20s and the third most common cancer in men in their 20s in the U.S. Luke adds that many experts believe that at least one reason is the increased use of sunlamp products by U.S. teenagers and young adults. The overview in Pediatrics suggests that doses of UV radiation emitted by high pressure sunlamp products may be up to 10 to 15 times higher than that of the midday sun, an intensity not found in nature. UV-A radiation penetrates to the deeper layers of the skin and is often associated with allergic reactions, such as rashes. This is not to say that outdoor tanning is safe. In fact, the World Health Organization has classi ed all UV radiation as carcinogenic (cancer causing). Stronger Regulations, Better-Informed Consumers Manufacturers of sunlamp products (including tanning beds and booths) must comply with applicable FDA regulations for both medical devices and radiation-emitting products. Based in part on risk information and recommendations from experts at an earlier FDA Medical Device Advisory Committee meeting, the agency is reclassifying these devices from Class I (low risk) to Class II (moderate risk). FDA can exert more regulatory control over Class II devices, notes FDA medical device expert Neil Ogden. For example, once the reclassi cation is effective, sunlamp products will have to undergo a premarket review by FDA and comply with requirements relating to performance testing, software validation and biocompatibility. FDA is also requiring that certain user instructions and promotional materials for sunlamp products and UV lamps intended for use in sunlamp products include the following warnings and contraindications (a contraindication means that the risk outweighs the bene t): The product is contraindicated for use on persons under the age of 18 years; The product must not be used if skin lesions or open wounds are present; The product should not be used on people who have had skin cancer or a family history of skin cancer; and people repeatedly exposed to UV radiation should be regularly evaluated for skin cancer. “We believe the reclassi cation will not only strengthen oversight of sunlamp products, but also help consumers be better informed about, and protected from, this sort of exposure,” Ogden says. Practices to Avoid Certain practices involving sunlamp products are especially dangerous. These include: Failing to wear appropriate protective eye wear, such as goggles, which can lead to shortand long-term eye injury; starting with long exposures (close to the maximum time for the specific sunlamp product) which can lead to burning, and because sunburn takes six to 48 hours to develop, you may not realize your skin is burned until it’s too late; failing to follow manufacturerrecommended exposure times on the label for your skin type (some skin types should not tan with UV radiation at all, for example, those with skin that burns easily and doesn’t readily tan); and tanning while using certain medications or cosmetics that may make you more sensitive to UV rays. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist rst. Indoor Tanning Raises Risk of Melanoma: FDA Strengthens Warnings for Sunlamp ProductsTHERE IS INCREASING EVIDENCE THAT TANNING IN CHILDHOOD TO EARLY ADULT LIFE INCREASES THE RISK OF SKIN CANCER...MARKHAM LUKE, M.D., PH.D. loved one, have provided $7.5 million in scholarships since 1983, to 1,700 students. The Community Foundation’s is one of the largest providers of scholarships in Palm Beach and Martin counties. This year, 83 students from 32 different schools in the two counties were awarded scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $30,000. The students were evaluated by a board and awarded scholarships based on a written application, test scores, grade transcripts and interviews. Community Foundation President and CEO Brad Hurlbert said, “We understand that many of our aspiring local students do not have the nancial resources for a college education. It is through the generosity of our donors that these dreams can become a reality, and we are extremely proud to be able to provide this service to the community. Offering much needed scholarships to deserving students is a wonderful expression of philanthropy.” The following students from Glades Central High School were awarded a scholarship from the Community Foundation in 2014: Vainqueur Delome, Pundit Mulchand and Janki Devi Sharma Scholarship Fund Mayoli Albor, Mabry M.Noxon Scholarship Fund Esther Dorce, Kim Love Sartory Scholarship Fund Daron Ingram, Sunburst Foundation Community Scholarship Peterson Louis, Bank of America Minority Student Scholarship Fund Brenda Lozius, Walter and Adi Blum Scholarship Fund Ric Nonombre, Sunburst Foundation Community Scholarship Christian Petitfrere, Lawrence A.

Celebrating July 4th: Religious FreedomBY DR. TODD BUCK First Baptist Church of ClewistonIt is a pleasure to be able to ‘speak’ to each of you through this venue. Pastor John was a blessing to each of us, and I hope to simply continue his and Pastor Thomas’ ne contributions through this column. As July opens it seems the world stage again is in chaos over the mixture of religion and politics. It is helpful around July 4th to remember our heritage of freedom of religion, and how that is signi cant to all Americans. In his crusade for freedom of conscience, Roger Williams founded the colony of Rhode Island in 1636 as a stronghold of religious liberty after the land was deeded to him by the Narragansett Indians. He settled in Providence with 13 other householders and in one year formed the rst genuine democracy, as well as the rst church-divorced and conscience-free community in modern history. Williams felt that government is the natural way provided by God to cope with the corrupt nature of man. But since government could not be trusted to know which religion is true, he considered the best hope for true religion the protection of the freedom of all religion, along with non-religion, from the state. His famous dictum was that ‘Forced religion stinks in the nostrils of God.’ Williams was not worried that entwining church with state would tarnish the government. Rather, he believed that government interference in religion or endorsement of any individual faith would inevitably pollute religion. A refuge from rampant religious persecution, Rhode Island became home to the rst Jewish synagogue in America and a sanctuary for Quakers who were being killed and persecuted in Massachusetts and other colonies. Rhode Island was an open door to all people ; a safe harbor in a vast sea of tyranny and oppression that reected out the light of liberty. Before founding Rhode Island, Williams was exiled by law from Salem in the Massachusetts Bay Colony after being repeatedly hauled before the Salem Court for spreading “diverse, new, and dangerous opinions” that questioned the Church. The law exiling Williams was not repealed until 1936 when the Massachusetts House passed Bill 488, ending 300 years of exile. Williams brilliantly argued that citizens cannot be discriminated against on the basis of their religion, nor can they be coerced into practicing a religion that they do not wish to claim as their own. America has been a land of religious liberty ever since. The city of Philadelphia commemorated the founding of the state 50 years earlier by commissioning a bell. In the Old Testament, the 50th year is the Jubilee a year of liberty and freedom. Mindful of that fact, the citizens of Philadelphia engraved the bell with a text from Leviticus: ‘Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof’ (Lev. 25:10). It is still one of the great privileges as citizens of the United States to worship (and not worship) under the full protection of the law. May we ever be such a land!Independence Day: One Nation Under GodBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins Church“Live as free men, yet without using your freedom as a pretext for evil, but live as servants of God. Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the King” – 1 Peter 2:16-17. The Lord, who came to this earth, came because there was something here worth saving and loving: humanity! His presence and earthly ministry is full of encounters with the worldly powers of His day, and He lived in a time when the people of His land were under foreign domination. In spite of this, Jesus commended people to “Then render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s” (Matthew 22:21, Mark 12:17, Luke 20:25). Jesus came to make this pronouncement when He was being challenged by those who attempted to entrap Him and declare himself in opposition to the government of His day. Instead, the Lord declared their responsibility to the government and that His followers should work within the body politic. His teaching impacted His followers with enough signi cance that three of the four Gospel writers recorded it. Peter’s rst epistle tells us to “live as free men…” and we are fortunate in this country to have more freedom than other countries. Peter goes on to admonish us to use our freedom wisely -something our ancestors sought and why many spend years trying to come here. Peter must have foreseen our allegiance, “…one nation under God…” when he reminded us to “live as servants of God.” The history of the country that we share and celebrate at this time is a history of recognizing God’s place in our formation and foundation; as such, we can honor our leadership who are called to hold fast to those founding principles and that we might be “…one nation under God.” It is in understanding that our leadership is to protect and make as perfect as humanly possible our liberties, justice, pursuit of happiness and life itself, and in that understanding give honor to our leadership. We in turn have an obligation to use our freedom to our own best ends. Our laws act as shields and sources of protection, not sources of wielding power or imposing wills. We have an obligation to uphold the freedom of religion, the source of our values and the means by which we know of our roots and reasons for being here. There shall be a separation of Church and state, but each has its place in our society and each should jointly contribute to the well-being of the citizens of the earthly realm and the heavenly one. We have come to the time when we celebrate our national origins once more: the Fourth of July, or Independence Day. As I re ected, I thought about what we were struggling to achieve independence from: oppression of our freedoms and our God-given rights. The rst Independence Day celebrated a foundation of a people who could claim, “Now we’re on our own,” and could use their newfound freedoms to provide a pinnacle of government, with people clamoring to get in and be part of it ever since. Peter’s admonition still is with us, that we may live as free men, make the best God-given uses of that freedom, serving God by keeping those values that are synonymous with His values, honoring one another and loving our corporate national brotherhood as a means for collectively providing for our ful llment. This is a holiday when we can re ect on what God has given us and be truly thankful. We can show our thanks by working to make the best of all of the opportunities and freedoms we have, rendering to our corporate national family on earth and seeing that we use all of our resources to be a part of the heavenly one that is to come. May this be a blessed holiday for us all; may we use the time to re ect, give thanks to God for what we have and work to further His kingdoms. If you would like to contact Rev.

By a vote of 32 to 18, the committee defeated a proposal to subject sugar producers to an arbitrary means test before they could obtain government loans that they repay with interest. The amendment was offered by Congressmen Charlie Dent (R-PA) and Jim Moran (D-VA) and was similar to an amendment offered in 2012 that was likewise rejected by the committee. “This was just another attempt by sugar opponents and the big candy companies they represent to harm U.S. sugar farmers, and the committee should be commended for overwhelmingly rejecting this scheme,” said Phillip Hayes, a spokesman for the American Sugar Alliance. “It’s hard to imagine any agricultural issue that has been voted on as many times as sugar policy in recent years, yet the votes continually show strong support for domestic producers.” During the Farm Bill debate, which began in 2012, a total of ve anti-sugar amendments were defeated on the oors of the House and Senate. In addition, three amendments have been defeated at the committee level since 2012, including the most recent vote. “Sugar prices have been extremely depressed because of a ood of subsidized Mexican sugar that has been dumped onto the U.S. market,” Hayes explained. “U.S. farmers are struggling in this low-price environment with prices hovering around 1980s levels, yet we continue to come under attack by Big Candy lobbyists who want to outsource America’s production to less ef cient, subsidized foreign industries.” Sugar policy operated at no-cost to taxpayers from 2003 to 2012 and it is the least costly major commodity policy in the Farm Bill. There was a cost in 2013 as a direct result of unfair trading practices by Mexico. The U.S. government is currently investigating Mexico’s sugar industry 20 percent of which is owned by the Mexican government and has cited strong evidence that subsidization and dumping are injuring U.S. farmers and taxpayers.

The Palm Beach County Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) recently earned the 2014 Outstanding Sexual Assault Response Team Award from the Florida Council against Sexual Violence. The county’s SART was chosen for its demonstrated positive impact on the community. This state recognition highlights the team members’ hard work and commitment to victims and their colleagues. On behalf of the team, Palm Beach County Victim and Justice Services Director Nicole Bishop accepted the honor at the Florida Council Against Sexual Violence Biennial Training Summit in St. Petersburg on May 15. Palm Beach County Victim Services coordinates SART, a 60-member, communitywide, multidisciplinary group established to promote a comprehensive response to sexual violence and serve victims along the continuum of services. The team meets monthly, and members meet in subcommittees to create effective protocols for local law enforcement agencies and medical professionals, ensure victims have the best services available, inform professionals of emerging technologies in forensic science, and improve communication and working relationships in communities. All of this is accomplished in order to better serve victims and increase the arrest and prosecution of violent offenders.
