'Nowhere but here in Pahokee'


By MaryAnn Morris
Three sisters, Iris, Mary and
Lucille were born and raised in
Pahokee. They have stories to
share.
"We all married and moved
away with our husbands. Now
that they have passed away, we
all came home. The three of us
live here in the same house we
grew up in," said Lucille.
Their parents, well-known in
Pahokee, were Carmen Salva-
tore and Ella Woodward Salva-
tore. They moved there in 1917.
But the story doesn't start there.
According to Iris and Mary,
their father, Carmen Salvatore
came to America with his moth-
er and his uncle from Ricighi-
ano, Italy in 1900, when he was
five years old. Not through Ellis
Island, but through the Battery
in New York, since they had
papers. They settled in New Jer-
sey where they worked to earn
the funds for passage for the
rest of the family to come to the
United States.
"Everyone in the family
worked, starting when they
were twelve or so," said Mary.
"The boys worked delivering
papers and things like that and I
know one of my great-aunts
had job .sewing. Daddy had a
real Italian father. Grandpa was
the kind that if you left home
with a dime, you'd better
comes home with twelve cents.
Everyone worked and brought

all their money home."
"After he came home from
France after World War I, he
worked in a paint store, then he
heard there was really good
work -stone work in Florida.
Grandpa told him he would
teach him to cut stone, so
Daddy came down to Florida, to
Coral Gables and worked on
the mansion, Vizcaya," said Iris.
"He met Mama down there
at the beach one day. They did-
n't know each other's names,
but later they told us, 'When I
saw him, I knew that was the
man I am going to marry' and
Daddy said the same thing. So
they were married in 1917
when Mama was 16 and Daddy
was 22.
"Mama invited Daddy to
Sunday -lunch one time, the
family wasn't home so she
asked her uncle if she could
bring Daddy to his house and
they would have lunch with
him. But her uncle said, 'No,


you invited him, you feed him.'
"Well she had a pumpkin, so
she boiled it up and Daddy ate
it.
"When they moved here to
Pahokee, Daddy would do kind
of work. He farmed some, and
for a while, he would drive up
to Stuart (it was all sand roads)
and bring back ice in a wagon.
There was no ice here and he'd
sell it. I remember him talking
about all the times he'd get
stuck in the sand or the mud
and had to unload all the ice
alongside the road to dig the
wagon out, and then load it all
up again to get it here."
"Back then the lake was
beautiful. We'd swim and play
in it all the time and it was so
clear, you could see your feet,"
said Mary.
This house was so close to
the water. When the wind blew
this way, the house is up off the
ground, you see, the water
would come right under the
house."
"The wind and the action of
the water brought the sand here
to make Lip the ridge here.
When the wind blew the other
way, we would go out and play
on the sandbars the lake left out
there in back of the house," said
Iris.
"We wouldn't live anywhere
else. We wish the dike weren't
here. Mama really fought the

DCF's announcement Friday
n-alv be too little and loo late, say
puLlic defenders \\ho have been
lobtbving judges to hold the-
agencV accountable.
"It'> not nearly enough," said
Bob Dillinger, Pinellas County's
elected public: defender, whose
(olfficc asked Farnell to punish
Hadi. "The\ neerd $50 million."
The first rnIv beds will be
a%, ailable in mridDecember.
01 the $5 n lion, $3.6 million
came-from fItrJ,-ral funding; the
remaining $1. Million came
:r.im within rti- agency after it
consolidated administrative oper-
ati,:ns: said DiF spokesman Al
Zimirnermarin
-immerni.an said the agency
\\1il1 nlinue ito search for extra
funriig. to pro'. ide-more beds.


Hadi has said the problem
became a crisis only recently,
when the number of jailed
inmates with mental illness dra-'
matically exceeded the state's
projections. ,
Statewide, the. number, of
hnentall; ill inmates waiting
longer than 15 days in local jails
increased from 7 percent to 72
percent of the total number of
commitments the past six years,
said Carlos Martinez, chief assis-
tant public defender in Miami.
For the 2006-2007 budget year,
records show 187 mentally ill
defendants waited for treatment
longer than the 15 days allowed
by state law.
DCF acknowledged it cut its
budget for treatment beds by $53
million in the 2006-2007 budget
year money that would have
"more than eliminated the exiting
wait list," Farnell wrote in a court
order.

roots are up where the water used to come and they call
trees like this mother trees," said Mary. The house built by

dike, but what could you do? No
one listened. Now they're ruined
the lake with the dike," said Iris.
"I hate that dike," said Mary.
"I'm not afraid of storms. When
the news people kept asking us if
we weren't scared, we told them,
"we aren't the scared kind of peo-
ple!' I think they wanted us to say
different."
Pahokee, in the 1930s had 16


restaurants and 2,735 people to
Belle Glade's 1,043.
"The farmers all lived here
with their families on the farms.
Not like now, where the people
who own the farms might not
even live in Florida," said Mary.
"But we were fine here, even
during the Depression. Mama
kept a garden and she always had
chickens, so we had chickens'and
eggs and vegetables. Daddy could
always find work somehow. He'd
see something needing doing and
he'd just do it. We wouldn't be
anywhere else."

What is the price of victory? Now,
there is an age-old question for us to
ponder. It is said that Robert Louis
Stevenson became a master of
English by writing some of his pieces
nine times over. The I manuscript
pages of Tennyson's poems some-
times have fifty corrections on a sin-
gle sheet. Goethe took a lifetime to
write "Faust" and half a lifetime to
write Wilhelm Meister. To be aware
of the efforts of these men in achiev-
ing their greatness teaches us one
thing everything has a price on it.
Without patience it can't be accom-
plished. The life that spurns effort is
without results and accomplish-
ments. In other words if you will
pay the price you may have it. The
skillful surgeon became so because he
paid the price of preparation. The
artist paints because he painfully
learned draftsmanship... on and on
we could go they all paid the price.
Thought To Remember: "Victory is
never won by the sluggard."

CLUBS: Regarding the proposed Gay/Straight Alliance, any club
whose primary focus revolves around a sexual premise does not
belong in the school setting regardless if it is of a homosexual or het-
erosexual orientation. What kind of parents do these students have to
encourage and promote this? It comes from good authority that those
petitioning for this club are bitter individuals who are reveling in the
fact that they are destroying the integrity, and even the possible exis-
tence, of the other legitimate extracurricular clubs at OHS.

Tiger earns a

Lei at Poipou
Even though Tiger Woods
consecutive tournament winning
streak recently came to an end,
he finished his season in grand
style by capturing the PGA Grand
Slam of Golf at Poipou Beach,
Hawaii Wednesday. He had a
poor showing in the first round,
and then roared back for the win.
The traditional hula dancers gave
Tiger his floral lei to go along with
a trophy and $500,000. This,was
the seventh time Tiger has won
.the event and he has earned a
total of more than $3 million at
the PGA Grand Slam.
As the season draws' to a
close, I find one of the best. ways
to get the scoop on what the play-
ers are thinking is from their own
words. When TNT provides the
coverage, they also share with
me some of the more enlight-
ened quotes from the event. I'll
share with you what was cap-
tured by TNT's announcing team
of Ernie Johnson, Bobby Clam-
pett, Billy Kratzert and Jim Huber.
Clampett on the attitude
change of Tiger Woods between
the first and second rounds: "It
was a totally different atmos-
phere (when he came out today).
Yesterday he was jovial; he was
playing with. everyone and
yakking it up, which is so unfa-
miliar for Tiger. Today it was
game-face and (he was) serious.
He commanded the first tee box
and made a statement to the guys
saying 'I'm here for business.'"
Clampett on Tiger Woods
admonishing himself after a poor
shot: "At least we haven't heard
Tiger call himself the worst golfer
in the world yet."
TNT's Jim Huber talked to
Tiger Woods about the impact his
father's illness had on his game.
Woods on playing in golf tourna-
ments while his father was sick:
"I was trying to give him some-
thing to look forward to on the
weekend. Something that could
give him a couple of hours of rest
to watch me on TV, something he
liked to do."
