Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public about a declared Sexual Predator. His name is Nicholas Alexander Fiallo. He resides at 104 Pelican Lake Drive, Pahokee. 

A 30-year-old man from Belle Glade was arrested after deputies say he had sex with a 15-year-old and the abuse continued until she was 18. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says Fredrick Baker is a full-time substitute teacher at Lake Shore Middle School. The victim told deputies just last year, she went to Baker’s house but told him she would leave if his only intentions were to have sex. She told deputies an argument occurred when she arrived and Baker forced her pants down and abused her. He told deputies he believed he’s being framed. He is charged with sexual assault and lewd or lascivious battery.

The Clewiston Police Department reports that on September 24, at around 2:30 p.m., a CPD Officer pulled a car over for following too closely to another.  The officer identified the driver as 22-year-old Le’Mari Camel of South Bay.  Camel was asked to exit the vehicle; at which time the officer observed a large amount of money hanging out of Camel’s pockets.  The report says there was a loaded firearm found under the driver’s seat.  Camel admitted that he did not have a concealed carry permit.  More than $4,000.00 was also found inside the vehicle along with twenty-one grams of marijuana.  Camel was arrested and charged with Carrying a Concealed Weapon (firearm), Destroying Evidence, and Marijuana possession. He was released the next day.

The US recorded its highest one-day number of Covid-19 infections Friday at more than 83,000 — more than 6,000 higher than the country’s previous record set in July. And as the fall surge continues, the daily numbers will get worse, experts warn. In Florida, health officials on Saturday reported 4,471 additional cases and 77 new resident deaths. That’s the third day this month the state has reported more than 4,000 new cases in a single day, according to a CNN tally. Florida has had a total of 776,251 Covid-19 cases and 16,417 state residents have died, the health department said.

The Pahokee Blue Devils open up their the four-game regular season this weekend against Seminole Ridge, then Wellington, Glades Central and Royal Palm Beach. After that, the Blue Devils will have to settle for a spot in the “South Florida playoffs” rather than chase another state title. The Blue Devils enter the 2020 season after losing some big hitters like Latarie Kinsler (Syracuse) and Tamarick Best (FIU) and linebacker Frankie Burgess (Maryland). Also gone are first-team offensive lineman Delonus Kabir (Florida A&M), quarterback Jermaine Roberson and running back Corey Polk. All regular season games for this year will be played at Wellington High School.

On October 3rd, Kayley Prinzy, a teacher at Country Oaks Elementary School in LaBelle, endured a life changing experience that would affect her physically for the rest of her life. Prinzy nearly lost her life in a tragic boating accident that left her, instead, only without her right leg. Despite this, Prinzy continues to light up the room with her infectious smile and glowing personality. She posted this heartfelt message to her social media page: “Regardless of the hardships I am facing, I can’t help but to sing Hallelujah. I can’t help but to feel so blessed and lucky to be alive and to still be able to play my ukulele and sing. Do me a favor today, friends- take a minute to ponder how crazy and beautiful life really is. Take a step back from the trivial things that bog you down and remind yourself to not take your body for granted. Go run outside for me and yell hallelujah at the top of your lungs! We are all so lucky to be here and it’s important to remember that. Kayley closest loved ones will be having a chicken dinner fundraiser for her on November 6. Tickets will be sold at Country Oaks Elementary School.
