Student who lived in shack cries when teacher rewards his kindness
While most Nikki Rowe seniors are itching to get out of school, Armando Beltran doesn't want to leave to school. The 19-year-old spent most of his life in foster care. With no real family to call his own, the school has been Armando's only true home. He often spends 12 hours a day there. Cynthia Villegas teaches English at the school. She says she'll never forget Mando's caring ways. "He has nobody to turn to...Parents or family," said Cynthia. "And yet he's so optimistic and he's such a good kid... And everybody who meets him... Loves him." He volunteers in the library, helps staff in any way and always remains positive, according to Cynthia. It's amazing for her to see considering he once lived in a shack and still rides his bike for miles to and from school. Cynthia says he also works a number of odd jobs to help make ends meet. He's unable to get a real job because he doesn't have a social security number. "I wanted to Pay it 4Ward to Armando because he gives us hope," said Cynthia. "He's got a good heart and I just want him to have a better future." Pronto Insurance has the Pay it 4Ward prize. "Usually it's the staff that's nominated for the Pay it 4Ward program," said Domingo Reyna with Pronto Insurance. "Being able to recognize a student brings us joy at Pronto Insurance. On behalf of Pronto Insurance and Action 4 News, here's $400 for you to Pay it 4Ward." With the money in hand, Cynthia joins Action 4's Ryan Wolf for the surprise. Armando is volunteering in the school library at the time. Ryan: I'm Ryan Wolf with Action 4 News. Are you Armando Beltran? Armando: Yes. Ryan: You look very surprised to see me. Armando: Yes. I have no idea. Cynthia broke the news to him about the surprise. Cynthia: Your story inspires us all... Thank you. Armando: I don't expect things for return for what I've done for them. The recognition was overwhelming for Armando who started to cry. He already gets help from some Nikki Rowe staff who donate money from their own pockets for his bills. The money has enabled him to move into an apartment. He never realized the impact he was making on other people's lives. The Pay it 4Ward recognition only reaffirms why he calls his school-- home. Armando: I live alone, and when I come back, at least I have somebody to talk to. This is my last year and even though I'll come to visit them. I will miss that affection you hear every day. Talking to them... And having a good time with them. It's because I haven't been with my family for a long time. So I've always been alone... So this is kind of my family here. Bridgette Vieh is the high school's principal. She believes Mando's impact at school will last long after he's gone. Principal: He doesn't feel sorry for himself, he doesn't expect things. He's just a real grateful student that's looking forward and he's just a great young man. I just feel like there's hope... That we can raise our kids that way. While the $400 prize is a shocker, Mando knows he's far richer with family-- His Nikki Rowe family. Armando: It's just that I really want to have a different thing in my life. I really don't want to live like where my parents lived. I really don't want to worry about that anymore. So every time I come here and I see them (staff) I like them so much, and they helped me so much. It's like a lot of help. Helping from the heart, it's more way to "Pay it 4Ward." Armando was born in the US, but at home with no midwife or doctor. The Texas legal system is assisting him with obtaining a birth certificate and social security number soon. Once that happens, he hopes to join the military. Click here to nominate someone for Pay it 4Ward Click here to join Ryan Wolf's Facebook page Click here to follow Ryan Wolf on Twitter
Customs and Border Protection Report: BORTAC
Since the beginning of the Border Patrol in 1924, agents have been asked to step up and perform protective duties. But in the early 1980s, a specially-trained team of agents was formed in order to respond to national emergencies. This morning we introduce you to the Border Patrol Tactical Unit, more commonly known as BORTAC.
Roach crawls out during interview with owner who denies insect problem
Rodriguez Groceries on 449 Ratliff Road in San Benito scored 34 demerits on a health inspection report. Owner Tony Rodriguez called it the worst in the store's history since opening in 1958. An inspector found a cross contamination of foods including bacon, chicken and corn dogs. Other violations included dirty equipment, rodent droppings and roaches. Tony told the Food Patrol that he never saw evidence of insect contamination. "I don't think he lied," Tony said about the inspector. "I just think he thought we had the problem." Tony invited the Food Patrol to check out his kitchen which he called "clean." A roach crawled out from behind kitchen equipment and up the wall just seconds into the tour. "There's a roach right there," Action 4's Ryan Wolf said while pointing to it. Tony took his hand and killed the roach which then fell into the sink. The tour ended shortly after with Tony asking the Food Patrol to leave. An inspector shut the kitchen portion of the store down for 8 days until a re-inspection cleared most of the violations.

Pay it 4Ward - Landlord gives homeless mother free rent
It's not easy for Pearl Zambrano to look back on the days as homeless. "No words," she says. "I don't like crying." The single mother of two, who thought she had no where to turn, was given a second chance from a former landlord she bumped into on her birthday. "I had no where to support them... I got laid off... So I had no way of paying the bills," she said. Pearl was told she could live in an Edinburg area apartment at no cost. The rent free agreement from her landlord cost Pearl just one promise: to finish college and provide for her kids she once faced losing. "It was very touching what he did," she said. It's been 15 months since that life changing encounter. Pearl still hasn't paid a dime to live in her apartment while she attends online classes. "I've offered to pay him back and he says 'no'... 'not to stress.'" That's why she's nominating her landlord, Rafael Trevino, as the next Pay it 4Ward $400 recipient. Pronto Insurance, who sponsors Pay it 4Ward, awarded the cash to Pearl for Rafael's selfless act of kindness. "On behalf of Pronto Insurance and Action 4 News... We couldn't think of a better person to hand this over to Pay it 4Ward! Rafael has really changed your life... And we're so happy to help you with this to Pay it 4Ward," Tito Munoz, district manager for Pronto Insurance said. Rafael arrives at Pearl's apartment on Thursday afternoon under the request by her to fix the apartment front door. He's in for quite a Pay it 4Ward surprise when Action 4 News is inside. Ryan: "She tells me you've changed her life... And [Pearl] she has something very special to tell you... I know you're surprised right now... I'm the last person you expected to see with Action 4 News... But pearl go ahead and share what you told us." Pearl: "On behalf of Pronto Insurance and Action 4 News... I'm Paying it 4Ward... $400 to say thanks!... $100, $200, $300, $400." Rafael is stunned. Ryan: "What was your reaction?" Rafael: "I don't know... Maybe I was speeding or something!" Ryan: "I'm not checking your speed... Or your kitchen... We're rewarding you!" Rafael: "Usually when I help people, I don't expect anything in return... At all... I feel privileged that not only am I in a position to help others but I actually follow through with it." At just 26 years old, it's clear everyone can learn something from this self-made businessman. Rafael attributes his humble ways to his late father whose motto it was to help others. "I grew up without my father... And I would hear all these stories of how he would go around helping people," he said. His kindness extends to other tenants who don't pay late fees. Rafael works 16 hour days at times to make sure others aren't in need. He plans to use his Pay it 4Ward $400 reward to help others. "If we don't go around helping people out... What type of world are we going to be leaving for our children," Rafael asked? Rafael Trevino is more than just a landlord; Pearl says he's an "angel" on earth. "Pay it 4Ward," Rafael says!

Deputy recognized for work off duty as father figure to girl in need.
The little girl pictured in the right arm of the man who's holding two kids may be all grown up now, but Mary Hernandez still remembers how he changed her life. Some of her earliest memories of David Delgado are captured on home video. David is a praise and worship leader at his church in San Benito, an Air Force veteran and a deputy for the Cameron County Sheriff's Department over the last 15 years. It's there where David thinks he has a meeting with Sheriff Omar Lucio, his boss. "Oh, wow!" David said as he opened the door to see a room full of familiar faces. "What are you doing here?" In reality, Mary, her mother and David's entire family are in the sheriff's office in Olmito to help recognize him on Pay it 4Ward. "I know you don't know what's going on right now, but I actually got a hold of Action 4 News for this," she explained to David after giving him a hug. "You know as a father figure... you know that... I... oh gosh, I'm so sorry," she said while starting to tear up. "My dad has never been there. I'm not perfect. I've made mistakes as you know. But you're the one who taught me how to ride a bike. You're the one that took me fishing. You're the one that brought me and my mom into your family when we had nobody," she said. David listened to Mary with a smile on his face. "I can honestly say that your voice is the one that rang in my head to become a better person and to start over again with my mom and to be closer with Christ," she added. "Your voice is the one that stood out to me. "On behalf of FNB Insurance Agency and Action 4 News, I have $400 for you. I would like to Pay it 4Ward." David gave Mary a hug. "How are you feeling right now knowing you made that kind of impact in her life?" Action 4's Ryan Wolf asked David. "I was a little surprised," he responded. "I never expected this. Wow! It's pretty cool. I tried to step in as much as I could... as much as I could knowing that I wasn't her father, but I still loved her and cared for her and wanted her to do good in life." David appeared to be stunned. He was overcome with joy. His family shared how David nervously polished his shoes and ironed his work uniform the night before in anticipation of the so-called meeting with the sheriff. "There's no meeting today with the sheriff," Ryan said. "It was a Pay it 4Ward surprise." "Thanks sheriff," David laughingly said to Omar Lucio who was in the office for the surprise. "David is a great employee and a great example for others," Lucio said. "We're real proud of David." FNB Insurance Agency awarded the $400 in cash for David's kindness as Pay it 4Ward partner with Action 4 News. "It's stories like this that FNB Insurance Agency likes to team up with Action 4 News," Jose Carlos De La Colina, spokesperson said. "So you can inspire people to be just like you." A little girl shown love; it's one more way to "Pay it 4Ward."

Health inspector reveals worst violations and penalities for dirty restaurants
The Food Patrol gets to tag along with McAllen's chief health inspector for a behind-the-scenes look at his work. Lupe Flores is known to be a pro when it comes to keeping the public safe. He knows inspections are the primary line of defense against dirty dining. Action 4's Ryan Wolf meets up with the inspector during a follow-up visit at Dejarvis Taco off South 10th Street and Dallas in McAllen. Flores checks some of the 27 areas on an inspection as outlined by the Texas Food Establishment Rules. He believes proper hand-washing is most critical to public health. "It's important to wash your hands especially using the restroom and all that," he said. Categories of inspection include temperature, personnel and facility requirements. Insect and rodent contamination only account for 3 demerits each. Flores says he will still shut a restaurant down with either violation because they can the contamination can harbor disease. "If we find somebody with roaches or rodents we try to close them immediately and ask them to take corrective action," he explained. Flores doesn't buy the excuse he often hears on Food 4 Thought from a restaurant owner or management who claims roaches are everywhere and not a big deal. He says it's a restaurant's obligation to do routine pest control. "I see it all the time on TV where they say 'well, they have them everywhere,'" he explained. "Well, I'm in restaurants all the time and some are bad, others, I look... And I don't find any." Inspectors are like the cops of kitchens. Tickets can be issued to repeat health code offenders. Flores doesn't take that responsibility lightly. "It's important because it's food safety and somebody could get sick," he said. He also knows some restaurants will try to butter up to inspectors by offering free food or drinks. Flores avoids any potential conflict by not accepting anything. The city also rotates inspectors semi-annually. "We're in one area and then we get switched to another area so you don't get to familiar with the business owner," Flores explained. Restaurant owners who are ticketed face potential hefty fines. But Flores knows there's another unwritten penalty for those who can't keep it clean. "Food 4 Thought, I think, has opened eyes," he said. "I've seen where the program picks up a business and it can also bring it down. If you want to be on the up and up, keep your restaurant in shape." Dejarvis Taco makes good on housekeeping and equipment corrections. Flores likely won't return for another couple of months. But the job of an inspector is never done, as the quest to keep it clean continues at every kitchen across the city.

Harlingen Resident Refuses Smart Meter at Home
Dr. Dorothy Nesmith of Harlingen reached out to Action 4 News as a concerned homeowner. She said she refused to allow a smart meter to be installed at her home because she claims possible health risks from the radiation they emit can cause flu symptoms, insomnia and even cancer. Nesmith said she's been making changes to live a healthier lifestyle and go green, but a smart meter at her home is not an option. "I exercise daily, I'm very concerned about my health and I really don't want to get cancer from a meter stuck to my house, which is also transmitting my personal information," Nesmith said. Nesmith also claims if she can log on to an electronic device and access information about her home's electricity usage, so can criminals. She said this monitoring system available for customers, gives them a map to what's inside a person's home. "If you're checking your data on your cell phone, then so is every criminal, every organized criminal, every teenager, an ex-boyfriend who's stalking you," Nesmith said. "Anybody can be checking that information and they can use it to come to your home when you're not here." AEP Spokesperson Frank Espinoza said that the health risks involving radiation waves have been carefully studied by the Federal Communications Commission and the Edison Electric Institute. He adds the meters were deemed safe. He adds the radiation wave exposure on these meters are 125 to 1,250 times less than that emitted by a cell phone. Espinoza also AEP is a regulated utility, and it will have to finish installing smart meters in every customers home by 2013. Dr. Nesmith said she'll continue raising awareness to try and stop the meters from going up in her neighborhood.

Pay It 4Ward - Kindergarten teacher making a difference
Inside Travis Elementary School in Edinburg, there's a kindergarten teacher who's making a difference in the lives of young minds. Over the last eight years, Mona Salazar has proven that teaching is a "work of heart" and lessons can be taught both in and out of the classroom. She creates memory books for every student that's chock-full of fun. It includes everything from their handprints to handwriting even snipped string tucked into an envelope to showcase one's height. Michelle Torres, who had two daughters in her class, said Miss Salazar uses her own resources to create educational magic. . "When a child steps foot in that door of the classroom, she's snapping pictures of them until the end of the year," said Michelle. But Miss Salazar's impact reaches well beyond the confines of the classroom. "We're on the PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) together, and when I'm real nervous she's there," said Michelle. "She'll be on the sideline, like a football player...Looking at me and encouraging me." Mona even babysits for Michelle's kids if she needs to be at the doctors. "I want to Pay it 4Ward because she's a person that gives to the community," said Michelle. "She gives to these children... And it doesn't hurt for her to give from her pocket." Pronto insurance wants to help refill Mona's pockets with the Pay it 4Ward prize. "How cool is it to recognize a teacher that goes above and beyond," said Alexis Reyes with Pronto Insurance. "On behalf of Pronto Insurance and Action 4 News, it gives us great pleasure to give you $400 to Pay it 4Ward." With the school's principal and Mona's sister in tow, the group made its way to her classroom. A nervous Michelle got some last minute support before the big surprise. Action 4's Ryan Wolf was first in the classroom door. Ryan: Are you Mona? It's Ryan Wolf with Action 4 News...Do you know why I'm here? Mona: No. Ryan: I have great news! Mona: What's the great news? Ryan: Michelle, come on in! Michelle: Hi Mona! Mona: Oh my, what did you do? Michelle: You over the years have done so much for the kids and my kids. You've taken me places... And done so much for us... And I want to pay it back to you Pay it 4Ward so here's put your hand out....$100, $200, $300, $400! Mona: Thank you! I'm emotional... I don't want to cry... Especially not on camera...But I'm very appreciative, and it makes it worthwhile... I work with a great staff! Edna Olivarez, principal atTravis Elementary School, said it was incredible to see Mona's work recognized by someone from outside the school. "Here at Travis we want to make a difference for every child, and so it's wonderful that one parent stepped up and said I want to recognize what she did," she said. Mona's sister, Jessica Salazar, can't think of anyone more deserving of the Pay it 4Ward prize. Ryan: You're emotional now, how come? Jessica: Because without her, I probably wouldn't have finished college....And she's raised me... And helped me through everything. "I'm very grateful and appreciative that I have parents who appreciate what I do," Mona said. "I enjoy teaching, and it just makes it worthwhile." Mona is preparing to embark on a new chapter in her life as a 4th grade teacher. She said the Pay it 4Ward prize will be put to great use for her students.

Meat market busted with roaches and rat droppings in several areas
La Michoacana on 902 West Harrison in Harlingen kicks the Food Patrol out after questioning insect and rodent contamination inside the meat market. An August health inspection report showed roaches in the bakery area and rat droppings in the deli. Food establishments with separate kitchens receive multiple inspections. Both areas scored 20 demerits from the health department on an initial report. Management would not answer the Food Patrol's questions regarding the violations. A corporate phone number was given to Action 4 News for a statement. Nobody answered on the other line. This is not the first time La Michoacana was featured on Food 4 Thought for dirty dining. In late 2010, 26 demerits turned up for dirty equipment and cross-contamination of meats. This time around, most corrections were made by the re-inspection.
