BY MELISSA BELTZ e SunThe road repair funds that sparked so much controversy between the tricities last month were once again the topic of conversation as State Senator Joseph Abruzzo visited with the Pahokee City Commission at its July 8 workshop in city hall. Sen. Abruzzo was straightforward in his discussion of the $1 million grant the Glades was awarded to repair its broken roads and the concerns that were raised when the grant money was divided between the three Glades cities based on population. He called the situation “mind-boggling,” as the region was prime to receive millions of dollars and there was animosity between leaders about how it was coming about. Concerns rst arose last month, when State Representative Kevin BY MELISSA BELTZ e SunWhat started as a innocent act of forgetfulness turned into a heated discussion between commissioners and the city manager at the Pahokee Commission’s regular meeting on July 8. The debate was sparked after Vice Mayor Diane Walker left some needed materials in her of ce in city hall, but was not allowed to get back into the locked building to retrieve them until the city manager drove from Belle Glade to let her inside. Frustrated by the delay and the fact that commissioners do not have access to the city hall after hours, the city attorney was asked to draft a resolution clarifying the board’s access to city hall after hours and on holidays. When the resolution was read during the commission workshop for discussion, it sparked controversy between commissioners. Some accused Vice Mayor Walker of speaking for Mayor Colin Walkes, because she asked why he did not have a key to city hall, when the previous mayor, J.P. Sasser, was given a key. Commissioner Allie Biggs asked the commission why it could never work together and said it was a laughing stock in the community. Mayor Walkes viewed the resolution as a tool to x something that BY AMANDA RAMOS-GUY Special to e SunRichard Radcliffe, executive director for Palm Beach County League of Cities, presented Belle Glade’s City Manager, Lomax Harrelle, with a career excellence award at Monday night’s commission meeting. Mr. Radcliffe explains that Mr. Harrelle, who was president of the League of Cities in the 90s, has been advocating for the Glades area going back to when the League of Cities was considered only as a social club. He stated that the county wanted to have jurisdiction over zoning decisions but Mr. Harrelle stood up to the county in a way that made a statement to county of cials. “It took someone to come in like General Patton, step up to the place, and stand up to the county,” he said. “It was the rst time that the cities prevailed over the county and made a statement about home-rule.” City commissioners voted to award a special use zoning permit to Dorthena Harris.

Respect: It’s Biblical and Can Really HelpBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martin’s ChurchOne of my sources commented on some of the faiths that permeate in the mid-East these days by noting, “They haven’t had their Martin Luther yet.” He meant that Christianity had undergone a great reformation in the past as a result of much soul-searching and revision with what the world had come to discover in the Renaissance. Maybe the universe wasn’t three stories; maybe it would be better to worship in a language understood by all, maybe it would be better to break down some of the separation between the clergy and those they served. The result? A “re-formed” faith, not only for those who separated, but also for those who stayed. In a dialog between the Lord and John, John seems upset and goes to Jesus. “Master” said John, “We saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him because he is not one of us (Luke 9:49).” The answer was “Do not stop him, “ Jesus said, “for whoever is not against you is for you. (v.50).” The disciples were concerned about which of them would be the greatest (v46-48). The answer is that “…he who is least among you all -he is the greatest.” Apparently, power struggles were known in Jesus’ day, as well as concerns about just who had the inside track and who had the right “brand loyalty.” My own experience has shown me many of these issues are still with us. One of my former acquaintances suddenly found herself facing a terminal illness. She was someone I knew to be of a different faith tradition than my own and she started to talk about the strength she was now getting from what she believed. It was different than what I believed, yes, but doubtless something that was giving her strength as she faced a major crisis in her life. She had my utmost respect and I offered whatever comfort I could to her. If I could offer anything in the way of helping her “cast out the demons” she was facing, it was hers to have… “whoever is not against you is for you.” She eventually succumbed to a tragic illness; my comfort was in knowing that she found her own way and it served her well. Occasionally, I have been invited to join other religious bodies. My question is, “What do you have to offer?” To date, it is nothing that I do not already have in my own household of faith. John was concerned when people who were suffering were helped by someone serving them in the Lord’s name, but because they were not known to John, they were thus suspect to him. Jesus resolves the problem (“Other sheep I have of this fold. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice…”John 10:16). There have been special moments when I’ve enjoyed dialogging with those whose traditions are unfamiliar to me, causing me to see things from another perspective, causing me to rethink some of my own points of view, letting me know about why we’re different and what we share in common. These are the moments that are best taking place when there is no crisis or when someone is not facing a great dif culty in their lives. I believe it comes from the kind of respect that Jesus is telling John when He talks of not worrying about “who is the greatest” or “who is against you.” In the meantime, the “Reformation” still goes on. We see people who respect one another’s differences, openly dialog and search for truth, carry out what we are called to do when “differences” or “greatest” becomes an issue. With people being executed in our world today simply because they do not believe what some invading force thinks they ought to believe; there is still much to learn in the world. Thanks be to God, our teacher resolved the issue 2,000 years ago. His lesson is there for all of us, both at home and abroad. 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.Community Christian EventsCLEWISTON — The Red Barn Gospel Sing will be held at the Community Christian Church during the summer months.

SUMMER SPECIAL! Obituaries Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 10, 2014 6 READING A NEWSPAPER MAKES YOU A MORE INFORMED AND INTERESTING PERSON. No wonder newspaper readers are more popular! BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe wild Muscovy Ducks are native to the tropical climates of Central and South America, Mexico and southern Texas. The heavier-bodied feral form is found in and around urban centers from New York southwest to Texas, and in Washington and California. They are also found in almost every county in Florida. Muscovy Ducks were intentionally released in the United States as an ornamental species in urban parks and lakes. Today, these ducks are also found in zoos, neighborhoods and farms. Muscovy Ducks are a member of the duck family (Anatidae) which includes geese and swans. The feral species is easily recognized by their stocky bodies and black, white or mottled plumage. Females are more drab in appearance than the males. Males have red facial bumps on the face over the eyes and at the base of the bill. These warty bumps are often reduced or absent in the females. These large ducks have long attened tails and large claws. Muscovy ducklings are yellow with buff brown on their tails and wings. Muscovy Ducks do not “quack.” The male’s call is a loud, dry hiss and the female makes a quiet coo. Feral Muscovies are often found in large ocks around lakes and parks where they forage for aquatic vegetation, seeds, acorns and invertebrates. Feeding these birds is banned in many areas in Florida in order to prevent the birds from becoming a nuisance and to help reduce the droppings near residential areas. These bird nest in tree cavities, on the ground, under shrubs and even on balconies. The female lays eight to 16 cream-colored eggs which are incubated for about ve weeks. The males often protect the ducklings and will help them search for food. Inland Birding: Muscovy Duck PHOTO/ KENNETH COLE SCHNEIDERMuscovy Duck and ducklings

House Bill 1049, by Rep. Raschein and Sen. Abruzzo, created an additional opportunity for divers to stay safe. Effective July 1, when in the water, they may display a buoy with a series of divers-down symbols as an alternative to the traditional divers-down ag. The buoy can be three or four-sided and must have a divers-down symbol of at least 12-by12-inches displayed on each of the at sides. Such a buoy should help divers, especially those in open waters, be more visible to passing boats. Divers-down symbols displayed onboard a boat must still be a ag at least 20-by-24-inches and displayed at a high point where it is visible from any direction. Divers may still use a divers-down ag of at least 12-by-12-inches on a oat when towed along with them while in the water. Being highly visible to boaters is critical to keeping divers and snorkelers safe in the water. "Divers should stay within the required distance of their ag or buoy 300 feet in open water and 100 feet in rivers, inlets and channels, as that's where boat operators are expecting you to be. Boat operators should do their best to stay these same distances away from any diversdown ag or buoy, and all boats being operated within these distances from a divers-down symbol must be slowed to no more than idle speed," said Capt. Tom Shipp, who leads the FWC's boating safety efforts. "This will ensure everyone gets to enjoy the water safely." With bay scallop season which just opened on June 28 and spiny lobster mini-season which begins July 30 lots of divers and snorkelers are taking advantage of the opportunity to get in the water. "This is a great time for boaters and divers alike to remember to pay close attention to their surroundings and be safe," Shipp said. For more information about the changes, the bill language can be viewed on the House of Representatives website. FWC Provides Guidance on Enhanced Boating Safety Legislation

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 10, 2014 8 HEALTH CARE DISTRICT OF PBCLakeside Medical Center, Palm Beach County’s only public hospital, graduated ve residents from its Family Medicine Residency Program on June 24th. The 70-bed, all-private room hospital, which is owned and operated by the Health Care District of Palm Beach County, became accredited in 2011 to offer the program which trains family medicine physicians in a rural hospital, one of the few programs in the nation to focus on the special health care needs of rural areas. “Congratulations to each of you and to your families,” Ronald J. Wiewora, MD, MPH, FACP, FACPM, the Health Care District’s Chief Executive Of cer and Chief Medical Of cer told the graduates in his remarks. “Through your commitment to this program and your service to Lakeside Medical Center’s patients, we help improve the health of Glades’ residents today, tomorrow and well into the future.” More than 70 people attended the graduation of Omar Mubaidin, DO, Josephine Pearson, DO, Tracy Romanello, DO, Zeporah Sykes, DO and Na Ly Vang, DO. These ve graduates are the members of the rst graduating class to have completed all three years of the program at Lakeside Medical Center. “You have learned the science of medicine but it is my sincere hope that you will always practice the art of compassion in this new road that you are about to begin as fulledged physicians,” said Nikerson Geneve, DO, Lakeside Medical Center’s Family Medicine Residency Program Director and Director of Medical Education. Omar Mubaidin, DO, the program’s Chief Resident spoke on behalf of his fellow graduates about the academic advantages of learning medicine in an underserved region so rich in charm, optimism and community spirit. “It’s going to be very hard for any of us to really leave Belle Glade,” Dr. Mubaidin stated. He thanked each of the attending physicians, adding, “I know I speak for all of us when I say we are very lucky to have trained here.” In his remarks, Thomas J. Leach, FACHE, Hospital Administrator, credited the graduates for their role in realizing many of the hospital’s recent achievements. “During the course of their time here, these ve physicians have contributed in Lakeside Medical Center having approximately 13,600 admissions, 70,000 Emergency Room visits, 3,750 surgeries and having delivered 1,300 babies.” Mr. Leach remarked. “This group of residents was not only here to learn from us, but they have become an integral part of this healthcare team and we have learned from their experiences.” Following the graduation ceremony, the ve graduates, along with Dr. Geneve, took part in coating three incoming residents to the program: Jessica Brunette, DO, Samantha Choudhury, DO and Justin Morgan, DO. This year’s graduation included a keynote speech from Shino Bay Aguilera, DO, Aesthetic Dermatologist and Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology, Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Aguilera, who helped train the graduates during their clinical rotations, praised each of them for their work as healers and for choosing to receive their medical education in the rural Glades communities. “Just the fact that you chose to receive your education here in Belle Glade says a lot about you,” Dr. Aguilera said. “In life, it’s not how much you know, it’s how you affect other people’s lives.” The Family Medicine Residency Program is funded by a grant from the State of Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration. The program’s academic and community partners include Nova Southeastern University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine, the Palm Beach County Health Department and Florida Community Health Centers. Among those who attended the event were James T. Howell, MD, MPH, Assistant Dean for Professional Relations, Chair of the Department of Rural Medicine and Professor of Public Health at Nova Southeastern University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine and member of the Health Care District’s Audit and Compliance Committee; Joseph DeGaetano, DO, MSEd, Associate Dean for Clinical Curriculum with Nova Southeastern University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine and Michael Gervasi, DO, President and Chief Executive Of cer, Florida Community Health Centers. Lakeside Medical Center serves as the primary clinical training site for the Family Medicine Residency Program. The program is comprised of a three-year curriculum that includes rotations in emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, general surgery, internal medicine, neonatology, community medicine and critical care. The program is training a total of 11 residents in postgraduate years one, two and three. Last year marked the program’s rst graduation, when the program graduated three residents from its inaugural class.

There’s a lot of selectiveness about how commissioners and being treated,” said Vice Mayor Walker. “I don’t want a key, either. Right now, I feel like if I went into city hall I would be set up. ... I am so sorry that I left my items in city hall. I don’t want a key to city hall. It’s not about getting keys to city hall. It’s about access to getting things if they’re left.” When the resolution was brought up for the vote during the regular meeting, Commissioners were divided. Commissioner Babb, Vice Mayor Walker and Mayor Walkes voted in favor of the resolution, while commissioners Hill and Biggs voted against it. Before the meeting adjourned, Vice Mayor Walker took one last chance to speak her mind, saying it was unfair that she was always being attacked and asked City Manager Derrek Moore to “stop causing tension” between the commission. City Manager Moore responded to the Vice Mayor, saying he “resented” the statement but wasn’t going to get into an argument.

A dozen members traveled to the convention to represent Glades Day school and compete in various leadership events. Over 3,000 FFA members from all corners of Florida were present to further their knowledge of agriculture leadership and gain valuable relationships with colleges and universities. Rana Hilliard competed in the prepared speaking event where she delivered her speech entitled “I am a lucky Girl” and faced the best competition from around the state. Rana did an excellent job and represented Glades Day school and community very well. Dillon McGahee was recognized on stage for winning the tractor operations event earlier in the school year.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 10, 2014 18 Public Notice Public Notice Rader gave an overview of the 2014 Legislative Session at the Pahokee city commission meeting, and revealed the road repair funds, secured by Rep. Rader and Sen. Nelson, were divided between the three cities based on population, with Belle Glade receiving $600,000, Pahokee receiving $210,000 and South Bay receiving $190,000. Pahokee residents and commissioners alike said the funds should have been split equally, and used the $1 million grant Belle Glade received after the 2013 Legislative Session to support their arguments as to why Belle Glade should receive less than it did. Sen. Abruzzo explained that he would never penalize a city for funds they received, and said the $1 million Belle Glade was awarded for road repairs last year was the result of swift movement on the part of the city’s staff, who submitted a detailed request for funds in time to be included in the 2013/14 session. Sen. Abruzzo said that having only been elected in November 2012, the amount of time the cities were given to submit requests was too short for Pahokee and South Bay to feasibly complete. When one Pahokee resident spoke up at the meeting and asked who dropped the ball when it came to securing funds for road repairs in 2013, Sen. Abruzzo responded, “Father Time.” Sen. Abruzzo also wanted to make clear to commissioners and residents that before the city of Belle Glades’ $1 million grant, the area had never before received funding for road repairs from the state of Florida, and reiterated the fact that the Pahokee’s annual municipal road budget rose from zero to $210,000 this year. Commissioners expressed their gratitude towards Sen. Abruzzo and Rep. Rader for their work in Tallahassee, especially for the hudreds of thousands of dollars in road repair funds, and clari ed that their discontent arose from the fact that they would have liked to be a part of the conversation when the allocations were being made. “We really appreciate everything that yourself and Representative Rader are doing for all three communities. I think when it came to our commission it was not that we were upset about the monies coming to the community, nor did we want to exclude Belle Glade from receiving any money, we were talking about splitting the monies equally amongst the three cities,” said Mayor Colin Walkes. “I think what happened, Senator, is that we didn’t really talk about the allocation of the money. You made the decision to do it by population. But this commission felt that we could have looked at it a different way, based on need, based on the fact that Belle Glade received money the year prior and things of that nature. But we were very satis ed with what we received, but we just wanted to make sure we were in the communications loop when decisions are being made about allocations.” To appease the commissions’ concerns, Sen. Abruzzo suggested the city consider submitting individual requests for grant money, instead of joint requests with the cities of Belle Glade and South Bay, in order to highlight speci c areas that need attention, such as speci c streets in a road repair fund request. Sen. Abruzzo said that if the city of Pahokee does want to move forward with individual requests in the future, it should start by trying to procure funds from the $9 million Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern (RACEC) fund, $6 million of which Sen. Abruzzo hopes to secure for the Glades area. Pahokee, South Bay and Belle Glade are three of ve cities eligible to receive money from RACEC. SENATORContinued From Page 1 PALM BEACH SHERIFF’S OFFICE Imagine the excitement of being a child and being afforded the opportunity to spend a week being coached by legends of the NBA. That is exactly what approximately 200 kids from the tricity area got to experience June 23 through June 27. The Palm Beach County Sheriffs Of ce, in partnership with the H.E. Hill Foundation, sponsored the rst ever BallStars Basketball camp in the Glades. Glades Central Community High School graciously provided the facilities and meals were provided by the school cafeteria as part of the Summer Break Spot, a nutrition program available in most Florida Communities during summer break. Glades area children between the ages of 8 and 17 participated in practice sessions and scrimmage games at the Glades Central Gymnasium with retired NBA powerhouse players Otis Birdsong, Greg Minor and Michael Ray Richardson. These three amazingly patient and humorous men were accompanied by Anthony Goldwire, out of Riviera Beach, and Sean Birdsong, who is still young in his professional career and is currently with Kansas City. Otis Birdsong is a former professional basketball player who currently sits on the Board of Directors of the National Basketball Retired Players Association. He spent twelve seasons (1977–1989) in the NBA and appeared in four NBA All-Star Games. Greg Minor is an American basketball coach and a former NBA basketball player who spent ve seasons with the Boston Celtics. Minor suffered from a career ending hip injury on April 29, 1999 during a game against the Miami Heat. In 2006, he obtained a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Phoenix. Michael Ray “Sugar” Richardson is a former professional basketball player and currently the head coach of the London Lightning of the National Basketball League of Canada. Anthony Goldwire played in the NBA and other leagues. He played for the University of Houston and was drafted by the Phoenix Suns in the 2nd round (52nd overall). Ball Stars Youth Camp is led by former NBA All-Stars Otis Birdsong and Micheal Ray Richardson. The program has been running for seven years featuring former NBA players travelling around the country and to Canada to help youth reach their potential. In addition to teaching basketball skills, the players stress to the participants the importance of respect, teamwork and overall good behavior if they have serious plans of becoming professional NBA players. They invite prominent businesses and local community leaders to join in at the camps and share their life experiences with campers as positive reinforcement of the fact that kids are able to survive and succeed in any environment if they stay focused and determined. Guest speakers at the Belle Glade camp included Derrick Payne, Derrick Berry, Capt. Mike Wallace, Sgt. Clinton Cohen, Sgt. Jermaine Ford and Florida Senator Joseph Abruzzo. Special thanks to Coach Kenneth “Coach T” Torrence, (PBSO/GCHS), CSP Carla Starling (PBSO), Deputy Sharon Smith (PBSO) for all their hardwork and dedication to the children of the Glades. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) requests the public’s help in locating three species of rare birds during their breeding seasons. The southeastern American kestrel, the burrowing owl and the painted bunting are rare and declining species that are often overlooked by traditional monitoring programs such as the North American Breeding Bird Survey. People are encouraged to use the FWC’s new Rare Bird Registry to quickly map locations where they observe these species, with the option to upload photos and additional comments. It’s quick and easy to use. Data submitted will be used by FWC scientists to identify important breeding areas for these species as well as estimate the size of their populations. “The Rare Bird Registry is an excellent opportunity for the public to participate in research,” said Karl Miller, a biologist at the FWC’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. “Sightings will provide the FWC with valuable data to help us study and conserve some of Florida’s most unique and interesting species. This new website provides a great way to get involved.” To assist the FWC in locating these rare birds, visit MyFWC.com/Get-Involved and select “Citizen Science” then “Sightings” for the Rare Bird Registry link.

The program seeks to help families who are living below the poverty level. Mayor Steve Wilson thanked Ms. Harris for her commitment to the community. “We are always looking for people who are committed to our community,” said Mayor Wilson. “I am so amazed by her commitment to our community.” Mayor Wilson also informed residents that the commission is working on the request to bring a food dispersal site to the community. He explained that he met with Rev. Willie Lawrence and Ms. Harris regarding the topic. “We’re going work it out; it’s all about the community,” said Mayor Wilson. “Some things we have to work out and make a win-win for everybody, but at the end of the day you all are going to be happy. Lieutenant Edward Luty, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce District Commander for Belle Glade, announced to the commission and residents that he will be transferring out of the Belle Glade area. He stated that he will be reassigned to the unincorporated areas of Palm Beach County. “It’s been a good three years. We’ve had a good working relationship and I am going to miss that,” said Lt. Luty. News of the lieutenant’s departure was met with mixed feelings. While each commissioner stated they were happy for the lieutenant and the positive changes in his life, they were unhappy with the sense of instability that the change will bring. “No matter how smoothly they try to make the change, it’s never good for the community,” said Commissioner Mike Martin. A Commission Workshop will be held on July 21 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss matters relating to the noise ordinance. The regular commission meeting will follow at 6:30 p.m. AWARDContinued From Page 1 Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach CountyNeeds your help locating Jeffrey Gamble, 54, whose last known address was Pelikan Lake Dr., Pahokee.
