BY MELISSA BELTZ e SunPalm Beach County School Board Member Marcia Andrews introduced two task force groups charged with helping Glades-area schools reach their fullest potential at a Belle Glade City Commission meeting last month. Andrews addressed the commission and the audience before introducing the task force leaders, saying student success and academic achievement were the school board’s number one priorities. After the FCAT scores and school grades were released this summer showing dismal reports for elementary and middle schools in the Glades, the task forces went to work trying to rectify the problems that could be hindering student success on the crucial, state-mandated tests. Dr. Frank Rodriguez, acting area superintendent for the Glades, introduced the two teams working every day in the area’s schools: the Area 3 team and the Transformation team. The Area 3 Team, said Dr. Rodriguez, is present in all of the schools in the Glades and focuses on student learning and teacher instruction. “Teachers and specialist engage in talks about differentiating the instrucBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunThe city of Belle Glade has approved a previously discussed annexation during its last regular meeting on Oct. 6. In voting for the annexation of the land, commissioners are hopeful that the recent sale of the Glades Correctional Insitution on the site will prove a boon to the area, especially with the backing of local investors at the helm of the project. A group of private, local investors purchased the land for $1.2 million from the state of Florida, with Governor Rick Scott and the cabinet approving the transaction in June. Purchasing the old prison were six partners, including former Belle Glade Mayor Tom Altman, Dennis Wedgeworth and members of the Rionda family – all with strong connections to the Glades area. What stands to be done with the site is a question that investors have yet to answer, but at least one commissioner, Mayor Steve Wilson, is con dent that the close community ties of the investors will pay off for Belle Glade in a big way. “It’s a big opportunity for the Glades to grow from a business industry standpoint,” said Mayor Wilson. “This [annexation] is just a start of what is soon to come.” According to the mayor, the city has been focused on rehabilitating much of its infrastructure, and the need to address upgrades and improvements becomes more necessary with the annexation of the additional land, which comprises a total area of 750-plus acres. Along with other projects, such as the demolition of dilapidated buildings, a new BY MELISSA BELTZ e SunThe Bill Bailey Community Center was transformed this past Monday, Sept. 6 into a makeshift farmers market, as roughly 300 families poured in to collect hundreds of bags of food being distributed by three Palm Beach County nonpro t organizations. Fresh tomatoes, squash, zucchini, bananas, grapes and salad mix adorned the long tables that lined the center’s oor, turning the dimly lit gymnasium into a temporary and colorful grocery store. The Miami Marlins Foundation teamed up with Feeding South Florida and the Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County to distribute hundreds of pounds of perishable and nonperishable food items picked up from C&S Wholesale, Publix and BJ’s. Alfredo Mesa, vice president and executive director of the Marlins Foundation, called the partnership between the three organizations a “trifecta,” as Feeding South Florida is one of the Marlins Foundation’s charity partners, while the Boys and Girls Club is a Major League Baseball charity of choice, as well as one of Feeding South Florida’s own charity partners. The three organizations were working together to make healthy foods available to families in the Glades no matter their budget, as well as making sure those families knew what exactly good nutrition means. The fresh fruits, vegetables and frozen meat set out next to the canned and packaged foods were an example of the healthy foods that families of the Boys and Girls Club will learn about in a new nutrition program being launched by Feeding South Florida and the Marlins Foundation. “We had a goal to make sure 80 percent of the food was perishable. Some of this food was picked up on our way in,” said Sari Vatske, vice president of community relations for Feeding South Florida. “It’s estimated that 500 million pounds of produce goes to waste in Florida each year.

Other than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States. It is also one of the leading causes of cancer death among women of all races. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 200,000 new cases of breast cancer are reported nationwide each year and more than 40,000 women died from the disease. About 11 percent of all new cases of breast cancer in the U.S. are found in women that are younger than 45 years of age. It is estimated that one of every eight adult women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. When breast cancer starts out, it is too small to feel and does not cause signs and symptoms. As it grows, however, breast cancer can cause changes in how the breast looks or feels. Symptoms may include:  New lump in the breast or underarm (armpit).  Thickening or swelling of part of the breast.  Irritation or dimpling of breast skin.  Redness or aky skin in the nipple area or the breast.  Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area.  Nipple discharge other than breast milk, including blood.  Any change in the size or the shape of the breast.  Pain in any area of the breast. Breast cancer can be preventable with early detection. It is recommended that all women from the ages 50 to 74 should have a mammogram every two years, and women between the ages of 40 and 50 years should talk with their health care provider about when to start screening. It may be necessary for you to have earlier screening or more frequent screening if you have a family history of breast cancer. Please get to know your family health history. If a close family member (such as your mother, father, grandmother, sister, or aunt) has had breast cancer, the risk for other family members getting breast cancer may be higher. If you think you may be at increased risk, talk to your health care provider. It may be decided that you should be tested earlier or more frequently than the standard recommendations. Are you worried about the cost? CDC offers free or low-cost mammograms. For more information about breast cancer and low-cost mamorgrams, go to www.cdc. gov/cancer/breast. BY BUTCH WILSON Clewiston MuseumThe calloused ngers of the carver moved across the cypress dugout with the nesse of a maestro pianist, stroking and tapping the smooth, polished sides for tones or aws that would indicate hull weaknesses. Finding no defects in his craftsmanship, the carver now gazed at the high, protruding bow that arched downward, forming two, long, perpendicular sides that met at the stern. Its high bow and lean, graceful sides were birthed for seaworthiness and speed on an inland sea called Lake Okeechobee. Who were these ancient people that once traveled on liquid highways in a watery world now called the Everglades? Spanish explorers, who met these people centuries ago in the vast everglades, documented their encounters. However, the sparse information that later scholars gleaned from these too few Spanish journals sometimes created more questions than answers. Only in recent years, have archaeologists started lling in some of the missing links on these mysterious people that time forgot. Come join us at the Clewiston Museum as archeologist Katie Smith shares discoveries from the ongoing research she is conducting on the skeletal biology of the Belle Glade Culture. Her ndings are based on the Belle Glade skeletal collections held at the Smithsonian Institution. Miss Smith’s interest in archaeology started at the age of 12, with Classical/Biblical Archaeology and particularly ancient languages. She later pursued a career in archaeology through undergraduate coursework in Palestinian, GrecoRoman, Ancient Hebrew, Greek and Latin archaeology. Miss Smith is currently pursuing her second Master’s degree as a graduate student at Florida Atlantic University. This free and informative program is made possible by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council. Refreshments will be served after the program, so come join us at the Clewiston Museum for a relaxing and entertaining evening on Thursday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. Please contact the Clewiston Museum at 863-983-2870 or email us at clewistonmuseum@embarqmail.com for questions regarding this event.

Dawkins, Tweets, and Downs SyndromeBY DR. TODD BUCK First Baptist Church of ClewistonThe atheist Richard Dawkins is in the news again. It seems he cannot keep his ngers from the twitter machine. This time "The God Delusion" author immersed himself in hot water for stating (by tweet) that it would be immoral to not abort a baby if the mother knew that her unborn child had Downs Syndrome. He wrote: "Abort it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice." This week, he apologized, saying that of course he respected other people's wishes. One wonders -given the worldview that Dawkins represents -that if evolution really is true, as he suggests, and the universe is a cosmic accident, then his own brain (and not Downs Syndrome) is proof positive that evolution makes mistakes. Given enough time, non-conscious material is capable of evolving into a pompous, hateful and stubborn crackpot who should have retired from public pronouncements while he still had the chance to avoid embarrassing himself. Dawkins, in 2014, has become a gure of mockery, a man so convinced that he possesses God-like powers of omniscience that he can't understand why everyone's getting angry at him for pointing out the "obvious." Why won't we all just learn how to think!? Thinking is all it takes! Especially, if we just surrender and think like him! Dawkins has become a man so convinced of his intellectual superiority that he believes the one domain in which he happens to be an expert -science -is the only legitimate way of acquiring knowledge. All of his outbursts in recent years follow from this belief: he understands the scienti c method as a universally applicable way of understanding not just the physical world but literally everything else, as well. Hence, his constant complaint that those appalled by his bigoted and hate- lled ramblings must be religionists of the Dark Ages. In his review of "The God Delusion," Terry Eagleton remarked: "Imagine someone holding forth on biology whose only knowledge of the subject is the Book of British Birds, and you have a rough idea of what it feels like to read Richard Dawkins on theology." But it is not just theology that Dawkins dismisses as inferior to his own scienti c mind, but also art, history, philosophy and human logic. To him, all of the humanities are expendable window-dressings, and even the emotions of fellow human beings are byproducts of natural selection that seem a nuisance. If Dawkins can't see it, then it doesn't exist, and anyone trying to describe it to him is delusional and possibly dangerous. One might hope that as he gets older and crankier, that the process will end with a breakthrough and a glorious deathbed conversion. But if there's one thing Dawkins has tried to impress upon us, it's that miracles don't exist. So perhaps we should do him the courtesy of not holding our breath.

This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.5 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.30/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were unchanged compared to the same day one year ago and are 3.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 13.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 5.8 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “We’ve begun to see retail prices eroding at a much faster rate in the last few days across a good portion of the country,” said GasBuddy. com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “48 out of 50 states saw average prices decline in the last week, with some of the largest declines in the Midwest, where more and more stations are slipping under the $3/gallon barrier. Motorists should be seeing continued drops in gas prices across much of the United States in the week ahead as gas prices catch up to the recent decrease in crude oil prices.” U.S. Sugar CorporationU.S. Sugar’s 84th annual sugarcane harvest, scheduled to begin Tuesday evening, was delayed until mid-afternoon Wednesday, October 1st and got off to an extremely slow and soggy start due to excessive rainfall. “More than a week of rain dumped nearly eight inches across the farming area, with standing water in many of our elds, said Judy Sanchez, senior director, corporate communications and public affairs. “The wet conditions will slow and hamper harvest activities until the weather clears up.” Harvest began Wednesday shortly after 2 p.m. on a limited basis in Palm Beach County, with no harvest activities in Hendry or Glades counties due to wet conditions. The Clewiston Sugar Factory began processing the rst railcars of sugarcane at 6:36 p.m. Wednesday evening. Both harvesting and processing operations will run 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the 2014-15 harvest season. The harvest season is expected to run until early April 2015. “We’ve had good weather for most of this growing season and are expecting a good crop,” said Judy Sanchez. “Unfortunately, sugar prices have been severely depressed for the last few years due to a surge of unneeded, subsidized Mexican sugar into our marketplace. Over two million tons of subsidized Mexican sugar has ooded the U.S. markets, a signi cant portion of it produced at Mexican governmentowned facilities.” Sanchez said that U.S. Sugar had sold all of its 2014-15 sugar at lower prices caused by the ood of subsidized Mexican imports and would have to rely on volume and ef ciencies during the harvesting, milling and re ning process to retain pro tability during this crop. U.S. Sugar and its independent growers are projected to produce approximately 7.23 million tons of sugarcane with approximately 6.5 million tons of sugarcane to be processed at the Clewiston Sugar Factory that is projected to produce approximately 743,403 tons of raw sugar. Through the acquisitions of Duda in 2012 and, more recently, Knight Management, U.S. Sugar also will be sending sugarcane to all three of the other sugar factories in the Glades this year. Sanchez noted that U.S. Sugar’s 2013-2014 sugarcane crop produced 759,378 tons of sugar, nearly 40 million gallons of molasses and 192,563 MW-hrs of electricity. “While Florida sugar farmers are busy gearing up for the harvest season, we are also continuing our partnership in Everglades restoration by cleaning the water on the farms every single day,” Sanchez said. “Our on-farm clean up measures, called Best Management Practices (BMPs), have reduced the phosphorus in water leaving the farms by 63% this year. That’s more than twice the 25% requirement, and farmers have averaged a 55% reduction for nearly 20 years,” said Sanchez.

Since the state of Florida once again raised the standards of what students are expected to know and test on, Dr. Rodriguez said teacher instruction needs to be tougher and more rigorous. “That’s the work the team engages in,” he said. The head of the Transformation Team, Vivian Green, also addressed the commission and audience to explain the work of her task force. “It truly does take a village to raise a child,” Green began. “Our role is to go in and empower principals to do their job, to assist principal in identifying areas they need to grow in and to provide tools to make those adjustments.” Green said her task force acts as a “change agent” to assist schools in building sustainable systems. “It’s not easy to turn around a school. We want to build systems so that it doesn’t matter who the principal is -we want to grow leaders and teachers in that school so that it will sustain.” That “system” includes whether or not students are getting to school on time, staying in school until the nal bell rings, attending all classes and visiting with a reading specialist often if necessary. Green said the task force walks through the schools once a week to make sure those systems are effective and remain in place. “Visiting the schools on weekly basis affords us the opportunity to look at the systems and report back to the principal and teachers,” said Green Green also said her task force’s most important work is to improve the people within the schools. Each school has a learning team facilitator who reviews data and has the “hard conversations with the principals.” There are also reading and math coaches in each school, as well as either a science coach or area science support available. “Our job is to go in and share information. One of hardest parts of my job is to listen, because you can learn a lot from listening. When I leave a school, my job is to leave a principal thinking, wondering and questioning, ‘Why did she ask me that? Does she want me to do this?’ I want to leave principals re ecting on their own work,” said Green, before adding, “Our belief is that all children can and will learn.” HELPContinued From Page 1 “OUR JOB IS TO GO IN AND SHARE INFORMATION.
