SOUTH FLORIDA SUNDAYS WITH MAYOR MASTERS
Dan Calloway, former Riviera Beach deputy sheriff and Palm Beach County detective sergeant, has joined forces with the local Masonic organizations to renovate the Stevens Brothers funeral home with the help of 200 sixth, seventh and eighth graders. The goal is to teach and mentor the youth about personal hygiene and responsibility, while preparing them for vocations, further education, and all aspects of adult life. In addition, 12 of those students will be entered into a modeling contest after three months in the program.
He also explains that a feeding program which has been a longtime fixture in the city will be expanded from one Saturday to two Saturdays per month, in partnership with Reverend Thomas Masters and Pastor James Howard at New Macedonia Church.

In the next segment, Atlanta resident and Palm Beach County native Artavia Taylor discusses her book, titled, “Finally Free,” which reveals her struggle in a domestic violence relationship. She provides an overview of her work and hopes her story will inspire others going through a similar situation to seek help and support. The feeling of liberation upon escaping such a relationship is also highlighted.
She says that “fear” stands for “false evidence of appearing real,” and explains that the enemy uses that strategy to gain control over their victim through threats. The goal is to build one’s confidence and strength to overcome such negativity through activities such as active ministry and other work.
