Motes recalls early Belle Glade
By MaiyAnn Morris
"As some people know, my
brother, David and I were the first
twins born in Belle Glade. That
was in 1921," said Jesse Motes.
"Even so we weren't here for the
storm of 1928. My dad, Rufus and
my mom, Myrtie first came here
by steamboat from Alabama up
the canal from Ft Lauderdale. For
years we went back and forth
between Alabama and Belle
Glade for the farming seasons
and we were back in Alabama
when the storm hit. Then we did-
n't come back to Belle Glade that
season. My uncle, his brother
Levi, came here too.
"My cousin, WD. Motes was
here. His name was William, but
everyone called him WD. It's his
house that's in one of the
Lawrence Will books (the other
one pictured belonged to the
Eggleston family). It (the house)
came to rest on the spoil bank of
a canal after floating away off its
foundation when the lake water
rose up. There was WD.'s family
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history
and one othei and then they
pulled in anyone who floated
near enough. After the water
went back down, they wrote to
my dad in Alabama, that's how
"We moved around a lot, my
dad always looking for a place
where he had steady work: we
lived in Deland for a time where
he worked citrus. We lived for a
time in South Bay by the North
New River Canal. Dad trapped
raccoons and sold the hides. That
was good money. Then we
moved to Okeelanta by boat.
That was the way to get here
back then. There was just one
store there in Okeelanita back
then. I don't remember how old I
was, but I remember that the
counter of the store was just
about at my eye level.
"There were some bridges
built by the time I was growing
up. The last one I remember was
in Canal Point. Where we. lived
was a draw bridge and the bridge
tender liked us. When he needed
to move the bridge, he would let
us little kids put up the chains to
stop the traffic, and crank the
bridge around. Back then there
were plenty of dredge boats on
the water and lots of passenger
and freight boats coming up the
North New River Canal. That was
the way people came here.
Then the Great Depression hit
and we came back in 1935 to
stay. My dad built us a house here
in Belle Glade by '36, so the three
of us went to school here. Mov-
ing around as much as we did,
we often didn't finish or started

NHS student members were
asked at the meeting to volunteer
to work a booth and to choose a
child to buy a gift for. The NHS
members are also providing
snacks for the younger students
that will be attending.
The booth workers provide the
supplies needed to do their craft.
Booths include face painting, '
Christmas card making, and a pic-
ture with Santa, taken by "elves."
The 47 children are divided in
groups by age and gender for the
NHS members to choose from.
.: Unlike the last Christmas party, stu-
dents will not be leading their chil-
dren from booth to booth, but just
buying them a gift and then work-
ing their booth.
Students attending Ace Pre-K
range from three to five years of
age. This program targets children
with developmental delays. A few
children will also attend the party
from the Early Steps Program.
"Our children will be coming
without their parents," said Ms.
Natalie Moody, teacher at Ace Pre-
K. "But the younger children will
be accompanied by their parents.
The Early Step Program provides
help for children under the age of
three and are recommended
through their pediatricians or CMS.
This program is provided by the
S county and gives physical and

Check with Tom first
Many golfers are searching for
that perfect swing. Santa usually
does not have that in his sleigh.
Therefore we often settle for a
new club as a give for our favorite
golfer (or ourselves).
Prior to making that important
purchase, you may want to check
out "The Search for the Perfect Dri-
ver" and "The Search for the Per-
fect Golf Club" by Tom Wishon.
Wishon has been a noted
designer of golf clubs for years
and he got tired of the marketing
spin that many club manufactur-
ers use to put more of their prod-
uct in your hands. He wanted to
fill you in on the secrets to buying
a club that would actually
improve your game and not just
lighten the load of cash in your
Wishon dispels many myths
that would get you into trouble at
the pro shop. For example, you
might think that modern clubs hit
the ball further than clubs of a few,
years ago. You may be wrong!
According to Wishon, the manu-
facturers have been decreasing
the lofts of clubs for years. So, you
think that new 6-iron is going fur'-
ther, but in reality, it has the loft of
by Daniel Shube
He also addresses the shaft
length of -your driver. Longer
shafts will not necessarily produce
longer drives (unless you have
tremendous swing speed). Not to
mention, longer shafts will pro-
duce more shots in the rough.
Whishon also explains that the
average golfer needs more loft on
his or her driver than they think. If
you can hit your 3-wood better off
the tee than your driver, this may
be your problem, too little loft on
that driver of yours!
How about the flex on your
shaft? According to Wishon, man-
ufacturers labeling of flex (such as
stiff or regular) vary. I know my
