Community gathers at Tree-Lighting Religion briefs
Moore Haven


By Glenda Wilson
The Clewiston Hospital
Foundation house was the
hub of activity on Tuesday,
December 8th, when nearly
one hundred area residents
came out to witness its first
community Christmas tree-
lighting ceremony.
The event began as an af-
fordable fundraiser (called
"Lights of Love") whereby
members of the community
could purchase a Christmas
tree light for $5 to honor/
memorialize friends and
loved ones. The founda-
tion then placed the names
of those individuals, along
with the donor names, into
a Christmas program and
distributed them during the
ceremony.
The First United Meth-
odist Church of Clewiston
choir made the evening
even more heart-warming
with their wonderful cho-
rus of Christmas carols.
There was much reverence Residents a
when, as the highlight of Foundation
the evening, the beautiful,
14-foot Eagleston Holly tree
(purchased by Dr. Leon-
ard Carroll) was lit with hundreds of color-


Phot
nd others took part in Hendry Regional M
House's tree-lighting ceremony.

ful lights that commemorated the Lights of
Love individuals.


Followingtheceremony,
the foundation held a holi-
day social inside their little
gray-brick building, which
was a sight to behold with
the attractive decorations,
provided through the ef-
forts and hard work of the
Clewiston Garden Club
members. The hospital
dietary staff offered an as-
sortment of appetizers and
desserts.
Robbie Castellanos,
chairman of the Hendry
Regional Medical Center
Foundation said, "It's a
great outing for the fam-
ily. It's an event where
everyone can come out
and celebrate Christmas
in a wholesome environ-
ment, as they reflect upon
people who have touched
their lives."
This foundation also
organized a tree-lighting
service at the Convenient
Care Center in LaBelle on
o/Glenda Wilson December 1st and plans

FWC: Slow down for panthers at dusk and beyond


A Florida panther met an untimely death
in the early morning hours of Dec. 17, after
a collision with a vehicle on Interstate 75 in
Broward County, near the Broward-Collier
county line. Fourteen panthers have been
killed on roadways in Florida so far in 2009,
and that has wildlife officials concerned. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) urges motorists to be vigilant
while driving as daylight fades.
To avoid collisions with roaming pan-
thers, the FWC requests that motorists obey
posted speed limits and remain on guard for
panthers crossing roads at dusk and later.
Panthers tend to be more active during
the hours between dusk and dawn, when
most automobile strikes occur. The driver
of the vehicle in the early-morning collision
saw the panther at the last minute and could
not avoid the collision because of the speed
of the vehicle. FWC biologists note that pan-


others often make a sudden dash as a car ap-
proaches, limiting the ability to avoid an ac-
cident, especially when drivers are traveling
at higher speeds. To help protect the large
cats from increasing traffic threats, the FWC,
along with sheriff's deputies and the Florida
Highway Patrol, actively enforce panther
speed zones in Lee and Collier counties.
Panther speed zones are well-marked, with
speed limits reduced at night to 45 mph.
Motorists who violate panther speed
zones often receive fines exceeding $200 for
their first offense. There is a mandatory court
appearance for any violation of more than
29 mph over the posted limit. Though Flor-
ida has experienced a significant increase
in panther numbers, from an estimated 30
animals 20 years ago to approximately 100
today, Darrell Land, FWC biologist and pan-
ther team leader, cautions that the species is
far from recovered.


"Panther deaths, including those from ve-
hicle strikes, have increased, in part because
of a rise in its numbers," Land said. "In spite
of the modest increase in numbers, every
cat remains important to the survival of the
species in the wild."
The number of Florida panthers killed by
collisions with vehicles has been on the in-
crease since 2000, ranging from 6 to 15 per
year. The highest figure occurred in 2007
when 15 panthers are known to have died
on state highways.
"Motorists also should be aware that pan-
thers are not always struck in posted pan-
ther speed zones," Land said. "We caution
motorists to be on the lookout for the large
cats in wild areas near panther zones, espe-
cially around sundown."
The FWC has worked diligently for more
than 20 years to reduce panther highway
mortality. Work by FWC biologists has been


successful in increasing the population of
Florida panthers and restoring the genetic
health and vigor of the panther population.
Much of the funding for panther research
and monitoring comes from fees collected
when residents purchase panther specialty
license plates.
"Research by biologists includes field
studies on the panther to determine den-
ning habits and movement patterns," said
Kipp Frohlich, leader of the FWC's Imperiled
Species Management Section. "All of these
studies aid in the long-term survival and re-
covery of the Florida panther."
For more information on the Florida
panther, go to www.floridapanthernet.org.
To report dead or injured panthers, call the
Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922.

The story of the Battle of Hatcheelustee


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The Second Seminole War was fast ap-
proaching its second year and it was clear
that so far, the Gods of War had not favored
the American commanders.
Capable and experienced soldiers like
General Gaines, General Clinch and General
Winfield Scott had met the enemy and failed
to defeat him.
In the summer of 1836, President Jackson
gave the Florida command to Florida Gover-
nor Call, who unknowingly, would follow in
the footsteps of his predecessors.
Governor Call's methods met with little
success against a resourceful, but elusive
enemy, while diseases and logistics plagued
his armies and crippled all of his strategic
plans.
On Dec. 9, 1836, Governor Call lost not
only his Florida command, but also his rela-
tionship to a longtime friend, President An-
drew Jackson.
Jackson accused Call for not being ag-
gressive enough and replaced him with
General Jesup, who was fighting the Creeks
in Alabama.
A bewildered Governor Call, soon parted
ways with his ole friend, President Andrew
Jackson, whom he felt had betrayed him.
Neither Governor Call, nor President An-
drew Jackson, ever reconciled their differ-
ences.
It is ironic that General Jesup was cho-
sen as the next Florida commander because
he was currently serving under General
Winfield Scott, a former commander in the
Florida Theater.
It is also probably fair to say that General
Jesup was ready for a transfer, since he and
General Winfield Scott were clashing on the
finer points of military protocol.
Some of General Jesup's problems with
General Scott were very similar to those that
General Gaines had earlier encountered,
while serving under General Winfield Scott
in the Florida Theater.
General Jesup's issues like those of for-
mer General Gaines, were adjudicated in a
court of inquiry.
Neither General Scott nor General Jesup
was found guilty of the accusations each ac-
cused the other of.
When General Jesup took command of
Florida, he like his predecessors, believed
the only way to end the war was to drive the
Seminoles from their strongholds along the
Withlachoochee River.
Unlike his predecessors, he disliked divid-
ing his force into smaller units.
Instead, he reasoned that a single, larger
force of men would be easier to command
in the field than several smaller forces, due
to the logistic challenges of the Florida Wil-
derness.
However, this idea was soon disregarded
as General Jesup became more acquainted
with the Florida Wilderness and the Semi-
nole tactics.
In time, General Jesup's strategy would
revolve around deployment of soldiers to
wherever the enemy made an appearance.
This deployment made his detachments
more mobile, while at the same time, keep-
ing them in constant contact with the en-


emy.
The new tactics General Jesup employed
became far more successful than those of
early commanders.
Constant pressure on the enemy was
yielding success. Small skirmishes started
favoring the American forces, as well as
the capture of Seminoles and many of their
Black allies.
On Jan. 8, 1837, Brig. Gen. Thomas Je-
sup gave Colonel Henderson command of
the Army's 2nd Brigade, which included the
Marines and friendly Creek allies.
On Jan. 23 near Lake Apopka, a detach-
ment including Capt. John Harris' company
of "Horse Marines," fought a large body of
Seminoles. Five days later, Henderson led
his force of Marines and Creeks into the
Great Cypress Swamp to find the main body
of Indians.
When the friendly Creeks (Creek Indians
wore white turbans to identify themselves
as friend) made contact with the Seminoles,
Henderson ordered the Marines into the
battle. In the dense swamp, the Marines and
the Creeks engaged the enemy across the
Hatchee-Lustee River, a deep 20-yard-wide
stream. Marines and Creeks extended them-
selves along the river bank and laid down a
cross-fire.
When the Seminole's fire slackened, the
troops plunged across the river by swim-
ming or crossing on logs.
The Seminoles started retreating. Colonel
Henderson's force then pursued the Semi-
noles for half a mile, through an even more
difficult stretch of swamp.
Six Marines died as the Seminoles made
repeated stands in the fierce action.
The outcome of the battle rekindled ne-
gotiations with the Seminoles. Several Semi-
nole leaders came in and discussed peace
terms with General Jesup, which resulted in
an armistice that was suppose to last until
Feb. 18, 1837.
The armistice failed to stop the blood-
shed on Florida's wild frontier, but it even-
tually brought the Seminole leaders back to
the negotiating table at Fort Dade, on March
6, 1837.
Only a small number of Seminole lead-
ers came in to negotiate the peace terms.
The document they signed became known
as the "Capitulation of the Seminole nation
of Indians and their allies by Jumper, Hola-
toochee, and Yaholoochee, representing the
principle chief Micanopy."
The treaties provisions basically stated
that all hostilities would cease and that the
Seminoles would gather south of the Hills-
bourgh River, where they would wait until
shipped west.
General Jesup had always interpreted the
Seminole War as a Negro War and acted ac-
cordingly during the peace negotiations.
He knew that the success of the Capitula-
tion document depended on how he treated
the Seminole Negroes, who were now in-
grained in the Seminole Culture.
Jesup made sure the Negroes were pro-
tected in the document by stating that Ne-
groes living in Florida were allies of the Sem-
inoles and would be allowed to accompany
the Seminoles west.
Jesup rationalized that this document
would end the Negro problem (slavery is-


sues) as well as the Seminole War.
The Second Seminole War was starting
to look like it was coming to an end as vari-
ous groups of Seminoles started gathering
around Tampa Bay for their trip west.
What looked like an ending to an unpop-
ular war was overturned when Seminole
leaders, Osceola and Sam Jones, convinced
or threatened the waiting Seminoles that
they should return back to the swamps and
continue the war.
Needless to say, General Jesup was very
upset when approximately 700 Seminoles
slipped back into the liquid green swamps.
It was at this point that a frustrated General
Jesup made the decision to use whatever
means it took to capture the Seminoles and
ship them west.
This decision would later make General
Jesup the most controversial General of the
Second Seminole Indian War.

Local citizens join in the Audubon



Christmas bird count


Binocular brigades may be
seen in region

Join volunteers for the 3rd annual Christ-
mas Bird Count at STA5 and the surrounding
15 mile area organized by Hendry-Glades
Audubon on Saturday Jan. 2, 2010.
Teams will begin at 7 a.m. Participants
may help for half to full day.
The post count event will be held in
Clewiston.

The longest running Citizen Science sur-
vey in the world, Audubon's annual Christ-
mas Bird Count (CBC) will take place be-
tween Dec. 14, and Jan. 5, 2010.
From Alaska to Antarctica, tens of thou-
sands of volunteers will add a new layer to
over a century of data vital to conservation.
Armed with binoculars, several local vol-
unteers will join this Citizen Science initia-
tive to count birds in our region.
Scientists rely on these data to better un-
derstand how birds and the environment we
share are faring.
Just like canaries in the coal mine, birds
serve as early indicators of problems that
can eventually affect people and wildlife.
Data from Audubon are at the heart of
several scientific reports. CBC data informed
the first U.S. State of the Birds Report, issued
earlier this year by the Department of the In-
terior.
CBC analysis also fueled Audubon's re-
port that Climate Change is already having
an impact on birds across the continent.
The Christmas Bird Count began in 1900
when the founder of Bird-Lore (the progeni-
tor of Audubon magazine), Frank Chapman,
suggested an alternative to the "side hunt,"
in which teams competed to see who could
shoot the most game, including birds.
Chapman proposed that people "hunt"
birds only to identify, count, and record
them.
These Binocular Brigades often brave

There's a wonderful world around us. Full of
fascinating places. Interesting people. Amazing
cultures. Important challenges. But sadly, our
kids are not getting the chance to learn about
their world. When surveys show that half of
America's youth cannot locate India or Iraq on
a map, then we have to wonder what they do
know about their world. That's why we created
MyWonderfulWorld.org. It's part of a free National
Geographic-led campaign to give your kids the
power of global knowledge. Go there today and
help them succeed tomorrow. Start with our free
parent and teacher action kits. And let your kids

winter's chill, ice and snow to record chang-
es in resident populations and ranges.
"When Frank Chapman started the
Christmas Bird Census, it was a visionary
act," said Audubon President John Flicker.
"No one could have predicted how im-
portant the CBC would become as a re-
source and tool for conservation."
CBC data also help document success
stories. The Christmas Bird Count helped
document the comeback of the previously
endangered Bald Eagle, and significant in-
creases in waterfowl populations, both the
result of conservation efforts.
"Each CBC volunteer observer is an im-
portant contributor, helping to shape the
overall direction of bird conservation," says
Geoff LeBaron, Audubon's Christmas Bird

New Year Priorities
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Chrisian Church
What will be your priorities as you plan the New
Year? Many will make resolutions to lose weight by
ii,._. less and exercising more. It's amazing how
much time and money is spent in keeping our bod-
ies in shape. I Timothy 4:8 says "Physical training is
of some value, but godliness has value for all things,
promise for both the present life and the life to
come." But the Bible does teach us that our bodies
are the "temple of the Holy Spirit" and if we destroy
our bodies through indulgence, drugs or abuse, God
will destroy us." Many people do not take care of
their physical bodies and abuse them with tobacco,
food, alcohol and even prescription drugs and then
blame God when they get sick.
Karen Phelps, a distance runner wrote: "On this
particular day, I didn' i. I .i ........i . .. - so I had
a set plan for training. 1.Run daily, even if you don't
feel like it. 2.Run daily, even if you sometimes have
to skip fun and pleasure. 3.Run daily, even in bad
weather even if people think you're weird. 4.Run
daily, even when it gives you aches and pains and
you feel like quitting. 5. Run daily, even if you don't
feel it's doing you any good. "One day, she contin-
ues, "as I jogged along on my training run, it came
to me that I ii i, i.. ....... ii waswhat my SPIRI-
TUAL LIFE NEEDED! Do you know what I learned?
Sometimes you may not feel like praying, reading
the Bible, going to church, or going out of your way
to help others. But if you're in training Physical or
Spiritual -YOU DO IT!"
What that says to me is we not only should
care for our physical bodies but also for our spiri-
tual well-being as well. We should be as interested
in growing in Christ as we are in our daily exercise
program. Some have a chart fixed so they can fol-
low their progress in their exercise. Do you "chart"
your quest for spiritual growth? You can chart your
spiritual growth by reading your Bible more, pray-
ing more and forgiving others who offend you. You
know if you are still filled with jealousy, bitterness, or
resentment. You may be in perfect physical condi-
tion, but how is your spiritual condition?
Another verse that reminds us that we should
prosper both physically and spiritually is III John
2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou may-
est prosper and be in health, EVEN AS THY SOUL
PROSPERETH." What if tomorrow you woke up to
find your physical health was as good as your spiri-
tual health? What if when you looked in the mirror
you saw, not your physical face, but the face of your
spirit?
We have a lot of improvements to make in both
body and spirit for 2010, so let's all get to work!

Christmas isn't over yet... or

ever!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There is something sad about packing up after
Christmas; putting away the tree, taking down the
lights, packing up the decorations. Holidays come
..and go... another one comes along or another
year passes. Many Churches count the Sunday after
Christmas as "Low Sunday".
Attendance is down and the holiday spirit has
waned. There is something special, though, about
after Christmas. It is not the end of the story, it is only
the very beginning. We can look back on Christmas;
not because it is over, but because of what hap-
pened;... because the Lord came into this world.
We celebrate the -, ,.i i .... of our children, not
because school is finished but because new doors


will be open. We celebrate promotions because they
mark a new start in a career or a new role in the ser-
vice; not because they are the end. I remember my
ordinations, not because they were the culmination
of studies and response to a call to ministry, but be-
cause of the opportunity to serve that they brought.
Likewise Christmas; the Lord came into this world
so that we might have a better life here, and an even
better life hereafter. Jesus tells us that "I have come
that they may have life, and have it to the full (John
10:10)."
He has left the manger and the stable to become
the shepherd; and will lay down His life for the sheep
that follow Him (v.11). Indeed, He did lay down His
life for us; now is the time to live in the fullness of that
life He gave us. His birthday is remembered for what
it meant; ,, .iii i. us instead. I knewofa group
in one Church I served that celebrated "Christmas in
July." It was complete with presents, music, dinners,
and all of the rest except the weather was warmer.
When I asked "What is this about?" the answer was
that "Christmas is too good to celebrate just once
during the ,,' and they were right! In fact, we cel-
ebrate each time one is born into the world, or each
time something special happens to us, or each time
something new and wonderful comes into our lives.
The words echo..." that they may have life and
have it to the full." The gift of Christmas comes so
many times that we don't even make the connect
tion. Christmas will continue because the Lord has
intended His faithful to continue until the end of
time; and no matter what, He intends that we have
life and have it abundantly. When we study the dat-
ing and history of Christmas, many arguments can


be made for Jesus being born in 4 B.C., (when it was
calculated that stars would have converged in the
East), or later in the season (as Orthodox Christians
celebrate it) or at another time.
We've picked the date for Christmas from our tra-
ditions; maybe we really don't know! Maybe Christ-
mas can be celebrated all of the time after all. Maybe
it should be!

New Beginnings
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It's fun to play with all the brand-new possibili-
ties open to us on January 1. Go jogging on January
1, and you've exercised every day this year. You can
come to breakfast and truthfully announce, "I'm so
hungry, I feel as if I haven't eaten since last ,,' Get
through lunch without ,ii._.. potato chips or a candy
bar, and this year reflects a whole new healthy and
perfectly kept diet regime. On January 1, at least for
some time, you've never yelled at the kids, forgotten
to floss, thrown your dirty clothes on the bathroom
floor, nor have forgotten to read the Bible all year!
On January 1 our whole life can be transformed.
For one day at least, all our good intentions can
be jump-started, and all our bad habits can be un-
plugged. At least for a few hours (or minutes?), the
year is a perfect reflection of our best self.
But January 1 is followed inevitably by January 2
and January 3. Soon we will opt for staying in a cozy
bed a few more minutes rather than plunging out
into the cold for that jog. Pretty soon candy wrap-

pers will start appearing in our desk drawer again.
Pretty soon, we will surely get aggravated enough at
a bad driver or frustrating situation to have unsancti-
fled thoughts. Before we know it, our socks are back
on the bathroom floor, our dental floss is gathering
dust, and we fall asleep before we can even get the
Bible open.
For all but a few of us, most New Year's resolu-
tions get packed away with the last of the Christmas
decorations. The problem with most of our resolu-
tions is that we resolve to make changes in our life-
styles, but miss restructuring our lives and changing
the paradigms by which we live.
The best resolution we can make can be found in
the Gospel of Luke when 12 year old Jesus answered
his parents as to why he acted as he did, "Didn't you
know I would be about my Father's business?"
The ultimate New Year's resolution does not
challenge us to cut fat grams, or quit smoking or get
to aerobics class twice a week. The ultimate resolu-
tion a Christian can make is to make it our business
to be a part of God's business.
What's God's business? God's business is trans-
formation. An electrical transformer takes high volt-
age and transforms it into energy that we can use
in our everyday lives. Without a transformer, there
could be no light in the darkness. At Bethlehem, God
came to us and gave us Jesus, who transforms in His
life the love and power of God into an energy that we
can use and experience in our lives everyday.
A fresh New Year lies unblemished before us.
Our life and commitment to making God's business
our business can help the love of God through Christ
transform the world.

Moore Haven High School students support the DREAM Act


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- A group of con-
cerned students from Moore Haven High
School are preparing to attend a conference
in Nashville in an effort to educate their el-
ders on the hardship some of their peers
face today.
At this time last year, the students contact-
ed state politicians and explained how un-
documented teenagers are 'caught between
a rock and a hard place'. The U.S. Supreme
Court may have ruled that undocumented
students are eligible for a free public educa-
tion up to high school graduation. However,
most are denied entrance to college because
their parents broke the law.
When they were small children, their
families entered the country illegally. In
some cases, their parents entered the United
States the legal way, but since 9/11 they have
found it impossible to attain a visa exten-
sion.
It is important to note that this issue is


not about funding their college tuition. This
is about young people who already have the
funds to go to college or have the means to
pay as they go. It is about successful high
school graduates that are not allowed to
serve in the Armed Forces.
This issue also applies to vocational train-
ing. If they do find a college to accept them,
they must pay out-of-state tuition; but after
completing college it is illegal for them to
start a business or look for legal employ-
ment. If they could pursue legal jobs, they
would be able to pay federal income tax, or
pay fees for state licenses. Ten states have
waived the out-of-state tuition, but Florida is
not one of them.
Students who have grown up with 'un-
documented' classmates are shocked to
learn that their friends are not only denied
entrance to college, but are in danger of be-
ing deported to the country of their birth.
Their friends grew up believing the things
teachers and parents taught them about
improving themselves with an education
and the tradition of a work ethic. Teachers,


coaches and principals are heartbroken to
see star athletes and honor roll scholars cut
off from pursuing the dreams they shared.
Why don't they just come forward and
apply for citizenship? They cannot do this
without the threat of deportation. There is
no current legislation that addresses their
situation, according to Crystal Drake, school
counselor. She has guided many Moore Ha-
ven High School students through their aca-
demic studies and is now the career coun-
selor for secondary students.
Ms. Drake has found that deported stu-
dents are dropped off in a foreign country
and are unable to speak the language. Many
teenagers have no family left in their birth-
country and become the victims of crime.
Due to the corruption found in many foreign
governments, there is absolutely no guaran-
tee that they will be issued a student visa.
Foreign officials may demand bribe money
or ask the student to engage in illegal condi-
tions.
"We feel an obligation to be their voice,"
Crystal Drake said.


Annually about 65,000 high school grad-
uates are unable to legally support them-
selves, enter college, defend their chosen
country or offer their work skills to society.
The student group is scheduled to address
the National Office For School Counselor
Advocacy, April 16-18. They want concerned
citizens to support the DREAM Act which
was first introduced to Congress in 2001. It
supports a conditional status for these stu-
dents who are 'caught between a rock and a
hard place'. The condition will require them
to complete two years of college or two years
serving in the military; and to maintain good
moral character. This must be accomplished
within a six year conditional residency after
high school graduation.
The student group from Moore Haven
High School must begin fund raising efforts
before they go to the conference on April 16-
18. Eight students and two adults can travel

MHES Christmas stories


Fourth graders at Moore
Haven Elementary School
prepare holiday-themed
essays

By Joshua Edwards
Mrs. Cosby's Class
One lonely Christmas every kid in my
town was gone to visit their family. My mom
said "go open your Christmas presents." So
I ran down the stairs making a big thumping
sound! When I finally reached the bottom, I
charged towards my presents and began rip-
ping them open. Every present under the tree
was opened with in a second. First, I opened
the biggest present and found a remote con-
trol truck inside. Then all of a sudden I heard
a big BOOM. I ran like a jack rabbit through
the house. I peeked around the corner and
saw five little blue midgets; they were about
three inches tall and had long hair.
They said "hello," I replied back with a
trembling voice. I came from around the
corner and said "Are you read?" "Yes," they
replied. "Wow!" I yelled. Mom came down
the stairs to see what all of the commotion
was. Her eyes got bigger than a scared owl.
Then the stockings from above the fire place
came alive, jumping down making a cling-
ing sound as they moved.
The two stockings yelled, "SANTA, is
here!" I ran out the door, Santa Claus was
yelling as his sleigh went into the night. He
said "those midgets work for the Grinch."
The midgets scrambled through our house,
breaking every glass. As I was trying to clean
up the mess Rudolph flew in to tell me to
lookout. He warned me that the midgets
were getting away on the five seat bike. "Ru-
dolph", Santa yelled, as he ran after the bike.
I didn't see Santa again until the next day
when he gave the red, five seat bike for my
mom, dad, sister, brother and me.
I never saw Rudolph again!

By Sidney Platt
Mrs. Cosby's Class
The night before Christmas, mama was
tucking me into bed. "Good night mama" I
said. "Good night", she replied as she went
out the door. "I can't sleep!"I exclaimed, still
tossing and turning. All I can think about is
the presents, Santa, the cookies and Christ-
mas! (yawwwn!) Well, maybe if I just get
comfortable. "I sighed", I fluffed the pillows
and fixed the sheets. "There" I said in relief
as I played down. A few seconds later as I
was finally drifting off I heard a thump from
the roof top. "Wh-Who's there" I said trem-
bling. No reply! I stumbled out of bed and to
the door that led to the hallway. Still scared
I walked into the hallway and crept into the
living room. "Okay Sidney" I said to myself.
"You can do this", so I looked out to see a
chubby man in red with cookie crumbs all
over his beard. "S-S-S-S-Santa Claus?" I ex-
claimed, still puzzled, "It really is you". He
smiled and whispered "yes, it's me, but you
may not tell a soul" he said in a kind warm
voice. "Yes sir" I said. So he set down some
presents and went into the chimney. But be-
fore he left he handed me a little snow globe
and said "keep this safe, it's magical and you


can look into it and see me at the workshop"
he whispered. "Okay", I replied as he got
sucked up the chimney, "I promise". From
that day on, I knew I could always believe
in him. And when I grow up, unlike other
adults I'll know he is real.

By Gesselle Velasquez
Mrs. Cosby's Class
One day I woke up and "its Christmas
Eve!" I shouted. I raced out of my room to
go to the living room.
"What did I get what did I get?" I said with
excitement. Right then my mouth opened,
"omg, there are three presents flying to my
Christmas tree!" I said with shock. Then I
heard a voice, "that's the last of theeeem-
mmm CRASH! Santa landed right on top of
our Christmas tree, "Wow, wait right here I
need to go get my camera!" I said. I got my
camera and took a quick picture. "OK, I got
my picture, so let's take you to the hospital",
I said. I rushed him to the emergency room.
Everyone wanted to take a picture, so I think
the beard was fake. The nurse came and told
me "Santa needs an ankle brace." I left with
Santa back to my house, "thank goodness
my parents are still sleeping!" I said with
relief. "How am I going to get presents and
drop them off at houses with a ankle brace!"
Santa said disappointingly. "I am sorry Santa,
maybe you won't have to wear it by Christ-
mas." I said hopefully but he said "maybe
there isn't going to be Christmas next year."
Then Santa's long beard turned short, when
I saw they got on my feet and said "Santa I
got it, every time you stop believing you stop
being Santa and every time you believe you
are still going to be Santa." So, then Santa
started to believe and his beard grew back
and his ankle was cured. "Thank you, if
it wasn't for you I would have been stuck
with the ankle brace and there wouldn't be
Christmas next year" he said. "Oh it was
nothing and goodbye!" I said. "Let's go back
home, haha, haha, Merry Christmas and to
all a good night!" he said. I said "bye!" I went
back inside (sigh) "My Christmas tree and
presents are still crushed, then right before
my eyes everything magically got fixed then
I smiled and said :this is the best Christmas
ever!"
By Babi Galdamez

One special Christmas I was with Rose-
mary and Nellie I always believed in elves,
Santa, and reindeers. So when I was at my
house I went outside to look for them. But
before I could go outside my mom said "put
on your jacket girls" so we did.
The next day I looked on the calendar
and figured out that Christmas was going to
be here in three days. So we started to deco-
rate the whole hose. We bought a gigantic
Christmas tree. On the Christmas tree we
put lights on it, ornaments and fake snow. I
said "It looks beautiful." My mom liked it too.
The next thing we did that day was shoveled
snow. W noticed that the snow was like big
pieces of hail. Then we fell asleep. All of a
sudden I heard a clatter on the roof. To my
surprise it was Santa Clause and his eight
reindeers. I climbed on the roof and fell in
his sack. The sack had many toys in it. Then

Continued From Page 10
when I got out I was in the sky. So I decided
to stay in the colorful sack. Then in one hour
I noticed that we landed. So when I started
to get out I tripped and fell in the snow. I
tried to get out of the snow but I discovered
that I was stuck. Then I started to scream for
help. Luckily a little elf found me and called
Santa for help. When Santa came he helped
me get out by pulling me up. Then he start-
ed to ask me questions like "how did you
get here?" Where do I live, I said? "I got here
on the sleigh and I live in Miami." The next
thing he did was take me straight home and
said, "Merry Christmas."
Then in the morning I went to school and
told Nellie and Rosemary. That is how my
Christmas was and I hope the next Christ-
mas is going to be better. But I know that no
Christmas is going to be as this one.

By Maricela Rubio
Ms. Decker
One special Christmas my Mom, my best
friend Toney and I were in my home (in the
state of Wyoming). Half of the trees were
without leaves. It had the most beautiful
waterfall and the snow was coming down
into the waterfall. My mom stated, "Maricela


help me in the kitchen."
I went to the kitchen to help my mom. By
surprise I found my friends cooking. It was
time to decorate the Christmas tree. About
twenty minutes later we finished. Here is
the best part I got to help my mom with the
Christmas feast. We had Christmas cookies,
mashed potatoes, and more. My Mom said
"go outside and play!" We got our sled and
dogs and went to Wyoming Snow Park. It
had a snowy mountain, a slide made of ice,
and more stuff. The best part of the park was
there was a big pond that was constantly
heating. Bam!!!! We dove in. Ouch!!! The
water was so hot that our bodies turned red.
We forgot to read the sigh it said that water
can go to 5,000 degrees F. We decided to
go skiing. We did amazing spins and twirls.
Then out of nowhere a snow ball hit me. It
was Nellie! We had a snowball fight for ten
minutes. But then something caught my eye.
It was a tree. We touched the tree. Bang!!! It
was a trap. We were in a parashoot flying
over Wyoming. We said we have to jump!
Boom! We fell on the ground. Good thing
there was a bean bag.
Finally, we got home and got licked by
the cocker spaniels. When we got home
my mother gave us some soup. We went
to bed. I woke up and there was a weird
looking thing outside. Finally I woke up and
got licked by the dog. I found out it was a
dream.

By Nena Bolan


blades County Democrat


GLADES COUNTY -- The Glades County
Sheriff's Office made two arrests, Dec. 10.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office
worked in cooperation with GCSO Detec-
tive Sergeant M. Pepitone.
On Nov. 7, about 12:30 a.m., PBSO
Agent Fonseca and Sergeant Woodruff en-
tered Angler's Reef bar located on U.S. 27
in Moore Haven, according to information
released by the sheriff's office. Agent Fon-
seca met the suspect, Kasey Pannell, 28, of
Clewiston. During their conversation, Agent
Fonseca reportedly asked Kasey Pannell
where he could get some marijuana, ac-
cording to an arrest report. He was advised
that the suspect and his girlfriend had re-
cently purchased a quarter ounce of mari-
juana, and they may still have some.
Agent Fonseca reports that Kasey Pan-
nell spoke to his girlfriend and she walked
out of the bar. Then the suspect requested
that the agent follow him into the men's re-
stroom. According to an arrest report, the
suspect took out a small plastic bag contain-
ing approximately one half gram of powder
cocaine, and offered to share it with Agent
Fonseca. Agent Fonseca declined the offer,


but stated
that he
would
need
some for
to mn or- r
row; and
the sus-
pect pro-
vided his Kasey Pannell. Paula Theodore.
phone
number for a later transaction.
When they left the restroom, Agent
Fonseca met the suspect's girlfriend, who
asked him to follow her outside where she
handed him a small plastic bag of mari-
juana. According to an arrest report, Agent
Fonseca asked her how much it would cost
and she commented to just buy her and
Kasey Pannell a beer and they would call
it even. Soon Agent Fonseca and Sergeant
Woodruff left the bar without incident.
Then on Nov. 11, Agent Fonseca con-
tacted Kasey Pannell by cell phone and the
suspect informed that he could get him two
ounces of cocaine and an ounce of mari-
juana, according to an arrest report. Agent
Fonseca advised that Mr. Pannell returned
his call about 3:40 p.m., and planned to
meet at the Alvin Ward boat ramp parking

trafficking

While Agent Fonseca and Sergeant
Woodruff parked at the boat ramp area,
a black SUV parked next to them and the
suspect exited the driver's seat, and ap-
proached the agent's car window and
handed him the narcotics. According to an
arrest report, Agent Fonseca provided Mr.
Pannell with Glades County confidential
funds for the cocaine, $1,600, and $500 for
the marijuana. The suspect went back to
the black SUV occupied by two unidenti-
fied passengers. The PBSO agent and ser-
geant left the area without incident.
The narcotics were later tested by Glades
County Sheriff's Office and both substanc-
es had positive results. More evidence was
provided by the cooperation of Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office.
On Dec. 10, Kasey Dean Pannell, sus-
pect, was arrested and charged with pos-
session of cocaine with intent to sell, sale
of cocaine, possession of marijuana with
intent to sell, sale of marijuana and traffick-
ing in cocaine. Paula Lynne Theodore of
Clewiston, 25, was also arrested on Dec. 10
on charges of sale of cocaine, possession
of cocaine, sale of marijuana, possession
of marijuana with intent to sell and traffick-
ing in cocaine. Bond was set for $75,000 for
each suspect.


There's a wonderful world around
us. Full of fascinating places.
Interesting people. Amazing
cultures. Important challenges. But
sadly, our kids are not getting the
chance to learn about their world.
When surveys show that half of
America's youth cannot locate India
or Iraq on a map, then we have to
wonder what they do know about
their world. That's why we created
MyWonderfulWorld.org. It's part
of a free National Geographic-led
campaign to give your kids the
power of global knowledge.
Go there today and help them
succeed tomorrow. Start with our
free parent and teacher action
kits. And let your kids begin the
adventure of a lifetime.
It's a wonderful world. Explorel
