A 2015 Chrysler operated by Angela Johson was traveling south on Northwest 16th Street and was stopped for a red light. The front of the Ram truck struck the passenger side of the Malibu as it entered the intersection. The truck rotated clockwise and came to nal rest on the northwest corner. The Malibu also rotated in a clockwise direction and came to nal rest on the west side of Northwest 16th Street. A rear seat passenger, Tomesha Lane, 23, of Clewiston, was ejected and slid under the front end of the Chrysler. Ms. Lane died from injuries she suffered in the crash on May 12. JOHNSONContinued From Page 1 Students are drawn to technology, and incorporating it into classwork and instruc tion only better prepares them for a digital workforce, said Adam Miller, director of ed ucational technology. Each principal selected teacher leaders on their campuses in math, science, lan guage arts and social studies to learn effec tive methods for empowering classroom in struction with technology during a two-day summer institute. Training at the institute included personalizing the content for stu dents, increasing learning and engagement and using technology in the classroom. Once trained, Tech Trailblazers are the rst to receive a set of Chromebooks and a touch-screen at panel whiteboard for their classroom. The district is expected to distribute more than 25,000 Chromebooks this year, and every classroom will receive a at panel screen over the next two and a half years thanks to funds from the penny sales tax. In order to qualify to be a Trailblazer, teachers must rst complete training to become Google Classroom Certied, an approximately 13-hour training. The School District of Palm Beach County has more Google Certied teachers than any school district in the nation. The willingness of our educators to engage in professional development to increase their prociency with technology and its use in the classroom shows that our teachers know where to engage their students and prepare them for life after school, Mr. Miller said.

August 30, 2018 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee 3 Special to The Sun Sadly, some of the cats and kittens at Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control have recently been exposed to panleukopenia a very contagious and fatal illness which is why pet owners are being reminded about the importance of keeping pets up-to-date on all necessary vaccinations in order to keep them happy and healthy. There has been an increased number of cats and kittens diagnosed with panleukopenia, more commonly called panleuk, throughout Palm Beach County. This life-threatening disease can affect cats young and old. These cats and kittens are then entering the shelter system and posing a danger to pets already residing at the shelter. Panleukopenia is easily transmitted from cat to cat, but is not a threat to dogs or humans. Symptoms to look for include diarrhea, vomiting, lethargy, fever and sudden death. If your cat or kitten is displaying any of the above signs or doesnt appear to be feeling well, schedule an appointment with your lo cal veterinarian right away. Talk to your veterinarian about the best protection plan for your pet. Check with the Palm Beach Veterinary Society for a certied veterinarian in your area or visit Animal Care & Controls website at www.pbcgov.com/ animal for low-cost vaccine packages and clinic hours. For more information, call 561-2331200, ext. 0, or visit the shelter at 7100 Belve dere Road, West Palm Beach.

Olympia Street Clewiston, FL 33440Located in the center of Clewiston By Katrina ElskenThe Sun As high temperatures and heavy rainfall continue to make conditions ideal for algae blooms, those who live near the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries are calling out for relief from freshwater releases from Lake Okeechobee. So-called emergency estuary protection wells could offer relief. According to Robert Verrastro, South Florida Water Management District principal hydrogeologist, the emergency wells would use deep injection well (DIW) technology to move excess stormwater 3,000 feet under ground into the boulder zone to help pro tect the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuar ies from damaging ood-control discharges from the lake. Mr. Verrastro said the technology has been around for the past 50 years through out South Florida, with more than 200 DIWs operating dependably and quietly. Okeechobee Utility uses a DIW for part of its wastewater disposal, when rainfall is too heavy for the sprayelds to accommodate. These wells would be a vertical option to disposing of water that would otherwise go to tide through the St. Lucie and Caloosa hatchee estuaries, he explained. When ood conditions give water managers no choice but to send freshwater to tide, instead of bombing the coastal estuar ies with excess freshwater, DIWs could send the water to tide by pumping it 3,000 feet underground into the boulder zone. These wells have a very high capacity on the order of 15 million gallons a day of wa ter, he explained. The district is considering a plan to install 40 to 80 emergency estuary protection wells north of Lake Okeechobee. These wells could reduce the need to send water east or west to tide, and give the coastal estuaries relief from lake discharges while the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan projects are under construction. The CERP projects will accommodate about 80 percent of the current ow to tide, he explained. Mr. Verrastro said even after CERP is complete, the wells could still be used to prevent harmful freshwater ows to the coastal estuaries during periods of high rainfall. The water SFWMD is considering putting into these wells is only water that would otherwise go to tide, he said. CERP also includes Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) wells, which allow water to be recovered when needed. The ASR wells cannot accept water quickly enough to handle the rapid ow into the lake when there is heavy rainfall north of the Big O. Mr. Verrastro said SFWMD is conducting studies to determine the right number of wells and the best places to put the DIWs. DIWs can be constructed on right-of-way SFWMD already owns, he said, so construction would not have to wait for land acquisition. Its going to take a year or two for us to get the program underway, he said. Over the next few years, these wells could be constructed to give the estuaries some relief from the high volume harmful discharges of freshwater from the lake, he said.

The Raiders fell short in the season opener against University 356. University was up 28-0 before halftime, which forced Glades Central out of its game plan and had the Raiders playing catch-up the rest of the game. The Pahokee Blue Devils are playing their rst home game of the regular season on Aug. 31 against Atlantic Community High School. Both teams are coming off victories in the rst week of the regular sea son. It promises to be a competitive game between the two schools. Last years con test saw the two battle each other to a 0-0 stalemate that went down as the only tie either team had in 2017. The Glades Day Gators will also be traveling this week to Naples to face the Community School of Naples on Aug. 31. The Gators fell to Benjamin 30-8 in the sea son opener on Aug. 23. Last years match against Benjamin was a high-scoring affair that saw the Gators ultimately lose 47-34 despite a late rally by Glades Day. The Moore Haven Terriers are traveling to Lake Placid to battle the Dragons on Aug. 31. Itll be the rst regular-season ac tion the Terriers have seen this year since their original opponent, Jupiter Christian, forfeited last weeks game. Moore Haven won last years match against Lake Placid 20-6, but theyll be taking the eld without one of the key players during their undefeated 2017 season, quarterback John Cox, who graduated in 2018. The Okeechobee Brahmans will be making the long trip to Lake Wales to face the Highlanders on Aug. 31. Okeechobee is coming off a 42-17 loss to offensive powerhouse John Carroll Catholic High Schools Golden Rams. Theyll be facing another strong and fast offensive team in the Highlanders. The Brahman defense will need to shut down the Highlanders run game to give the Okeechobee offense a chance to get rolling. The Clewiston Tigers hit that road to face the Monsignor Pace Spartans on Aug. 31. The Tigers lost key members of their offense and defense in 2018 and nd themselves in something of a rebuilding phase as young players attempt to gain more experience. To make matters worse, Clewiston lost quarterback Chasman Ware a week before the regular season began to a shoulder injury. The Tigers lost their home opener to Fort Myers, 42-0.
