Garrett named new BG mayor


Sanchez steps down

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE In a move
during Monday's commission
meeting that surprised some
audience members, Dr. Ray Tor-
res Sanchez stepped down as
the mayor of Belle Glade.
Donald Garrett was appoint-
ed the new mayor, with Shelly
Miller making the motion and
the new mayor seconding it.
The motion carried by a 3-2


vote, with Gwendolyn Asia-
Williams and Mary Kendall
opposing the action.
The commission unani-
mously voted Ms. Kendall as the
new vice-mayor, while Commis-
sioner Asia-Williams was also
voted on consensus to retain
her treasurer post.
The term of the new organi-
zation of the commission lasts
from Apr. 1 to March 31, 2008,
which is around the time that
Mayor Garrett and Commission-
er Sanchez will be due to run for
office again.
After the commission meet-


ing, Commissioner Sanchez
said he was relieved that he is
no longer the mayor. His actions
were constantly criticized by
some members of the commu-
nity who alleged that he and
Commissioners Sanchez and
Miller, forming a majority voting
bloc at meetings, voted on
issues without considering the
opposing side.
"I'm very happy to be a com-
missioner," said Commissioner
Sanchez. "I want to congratulate
Mayor Garrett and Vice-Mayor
Kendall and I look forward to
working with them under their

guidance and leadership."
Mayor Garrett was brief
when asked about his goals
regarding his new position.
"I want to work together
with the commission and try to
move the city forward," said
Mayor Garrett.
Commissioner Asia-Williams
said that she gives her congratu-
lations to the new mayor and
vice-mayor and stressed the fact
that Mayor Garrett gave a com-
mitment that he will work
together with the entire city
commission.
As the new mayor, Commis-


sioner Garrett's role is that of the
city's top representative, though
he remains only one vote out of
five, with the rest of the commis-
sioners, on policy matters.
Upon exiting city hall, Rev-
erend Robert Rease said that he
was surprised by the actions
that took place during the meet-
ing, but hopeful that the com-
mission will stick together as a
team.
"I hope that Mayor Garrett
does a good job and I'll be pray-
ing for him," said Rev. Rease.

he ran into a South Bay Street
and was struck by a tractor

According to information

The students from Pahokee Elementary School were singing along their school

to sing along with them. Mr. Boldin visited Pahokee Elementary School on Thurs-

Anquan Boldin Motivates Youth


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE NFL superstar
and Pahokee native Anquan
Boldin paid a visit to the Pahokee
area schools on Thursday, March
29 to deliver an encouraging
message to youth in the area.
Mr. Boldin's school tour
began at 10:30 a.m., with Canal
Point Elementary School being
the first stop.
According to Canal Point Ele-
mentary School Assistant Princi-
pal Roxanne Curtiss, about 300
Canal Point Elementary School
students were in attendance, all
of them eagerly waiting Mr.
Boldin's arrival.
So, 300 kids began cheering
as soon as Mr. Boldin got out of
his burgundy Hummer truck. He
took center stage at the school
and took advantage of the
opportunity to let children know
they, too, can be successful if


they only try.
Mr. Boldin not only stressed
the athletics, but the academics,
and told children they can be
anything they want to be if they
only try and believe in them-
selves.
During the question/answer
segment, the crowd burst into
laughter as one female student
asked Mr. Boldin if he was mar-
ried.
"No, I'm not married," Mr.
Boldin told the student.
Mr. Boldin told the students
that he attended Canal Point Ele-
mentary School, where he was
the captain of the safety patrol
team.
Mr. Boldin's next stop was
Pahokee Elementary School,
where the flocks of students
were donning paperbacks of the
NFL player. One highlight of Mr.
Boldin's visit was when the
teachers had Mr. Boldin and the


students to sing the Pahokee Ele-
mentary school song.
\ Mr. Boldin paid Pahokee Mid-
dle-Senior High School a visit. He
is a 1999 graduate of the school.
Mr. Boldin told students he was
disappointed to hear that alleged
fighting and disputes sometimes
occur between some citizens of
Belle Glade and Pahokee.
Mr. Boldin told the high
school students that if he had to
be anything else other than an
athlete, he would be a counselor
for the youth.
Mr. Boldin told students that
he kept high grades throughout
high school and worked hard to
get to the point where he is now.
"If you work hard at what you
do, you're going to succeed," Mr.
Boldin said to the high school
students.

across the street from 10th
Avenue.

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE At the 56th
Annual Awards Banquet held
by the Pahokee Chamber of
Commerce on Saturday night,
public housing authority repre-
sentative Julia Hale received
the 2006 Citizen of the Year
award.
Palm Beach County Fire
Rescue representative Gary
Burroughs, the 2005 winner,
presented the award to Mrs.
Hale during the event, held at
First Methodist Church in
Pahokee.
When she got up to accept
the award. Mrs Hale rem-cr


bered a few things her mother
used to tell her. Her mother,
Vernice Scurry, would always
have the appropriate thing to
say and know just the appro-
priate time to say it.
As a child, Mrs. Hale
remembers her mother telling
her: "Don't forget the bridge
that helped you cross it," and
"Birds who fly high must come
down to the nest."
She drew inspiration from
them again when she accepted
the award.
"I am elated to have
received such an award," said
Mrs. Hale. "I believe success is
not realized until those you
serve have truly benefited.
Only then will one know that it
has been achieved."
Ms. Hale said that her award
was tantamount to receiving
an Oscar, both are a great
iiubior.


"This makes me overjoyed
that Julia took heed to what I
taught her from childhood,"
said Ms. Scurry.
Some of Mrs. Hale's accom-
plishments include receiving
an 'I Made A Difference Award'
from the Pahokee Housing
Authority Board and Staff for
superior leadership, untiring
dedication and outstanding
contributions made to the
housing authority, as well as
being able to obtain a $2 mil-
lion grant from the Housing
and Urban Development
(HUD), among others.
Mrs. Hale's husband, Leroy
Hale, said that he's very proud
of her achievements and that
she is deserving of the award,
working long hours with the
housing authority.

Drought continues; tighter water restrictions predicted


By MaiyAnn Morris
INI Florida
WEST PALM BEACH Tiger
water restrictions may be on the
horizon.
"If the drought continues,"
said Ms Wehle, "We could be
looking at water elevations in
Lake Okeechobee one foot lower
than the record low of 8.79 feet."
Based on a review of new
information received from the
National Weather Service, water
managers at the South Florida
Water Management District have
predicted that drought conditions
are likely to intensify quickly, par-
ticularly in the highly-populated
Lower and Upper East Coast Ser-
vice Areas, which comprise por-
tions of St. Lucie, Martin, Palm


Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and
Monroe Counties.
At a press conference on Tues-
day, they predicted tighter water
restrictions may be in place soon.
The drought and subsequent
water shortage of 2007 are the
result of severe, extended, low
rainfall dating back to 2006,
which ranked as the sixth-driest
year on record in terms of Dis-
trict-wide rainfall. This has con-
tinued through the first three
months of 2007.
Only 2.61 inches of rain has
fallen year to date District-wide:
Just 37 percent of the average
rainfall for the three-month peri-
od ending March 30. In March,
only 0.60 inch of rain fell District-
wide; This is 21 percent of the his-
torical average for the month.


This year's dry season current-
ly ranks as the third driest season
in recordable Florida history,
according to the National Weath-
er Service. Meanwhile, the U.S.
Drought Monitor, which identifies
general drought areas by intensi-
ty, has recently categorized all
areas of the SFWMD as either
moderate or severe drought
zones with a prediction of possi-
ble drought intensification.
Water levels across the District
have dropped suddenly and
sharply over the past week, exac-
erbated by high evaporation and
transpiration rates and longer
periods of wind and sunlight.
Water managers at the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) announced April 2
that its Governing Board will con-


sider expanding the current water
use restrictions at its April 12
meeting. Approval will mean that
t1ie new restrictions go into effect
on April 13.
"We will be recommending
and we expect that the Governing
Board will approve the tighter
restrictions," said Ms. Wehle.
Phase 1 or moderate water
shortage declaration will continue
for the Upper East Coast Service
area, which comprises residential
areas of Martin and St. Lucie Coun-
ties and a change to Phase 2 or
severe water shortage declaration
for the Lower East Coast Service
Area, which comprises eastern
Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-
Dade and Monroe Counties.
Lake Okeechobee was at 10.34
feet on Tuesday four feet lower


than last year's level. It will take a
great deal of periodic rainfall over
the summer months to remedy
this situation said Ms. Wehle.
Water managers will ask the
SFWMD Governing Board to con-
sider Phase 3 or extreme water
shortage declaration for the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area, which
comprises the Everglades Agricul-
tural Area and portions of Hendry,
Glades, Lee, Okeechobee, Palm
Beach and Martin Counties.
Agricultural users are by far the
largest water users in the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area; the
new restrictions would require
them to reduce their water use 45
percent.
The SFWMD continues to
encourage both residential and
agricultural water users through-


out the District to reduce their
water consumption and observe
more aggressive water conserva-
tion practices as practicable.
While voluntary conservation
also is encouraged for users of
alternative water supply sources,
the use of 100 percent reclaimed
water is not subject to restrictions.
The use of water for health, fire,
safety and other essential purpos-
es also is not restricted.
For additional information,
area residents are encouraged to
call the SFWMD's toll-free Water
Shortage Hotline at 1-800-662-
8876 or contact their regional
SFWMD service center. Helpful
water conservation tips and spe-
cific information on current water
use restrictions are available at
www.sfwmd.gov/conserve.


Man arrested Sago Palm Academy in Pahokee re-opens classroom facilities


following an

auto chase

Subject was tracked
by Palm Beach offi-
cials into Clewiston

By Naji Tobias
INI/Florida
HARLEM A 20-year old man
was arrested after an auto chase
that took place near Clewiston on
March 26.
According to a press release
provided by the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office, a Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office helicopter
followed the suspect out of Paho-
kee, driving a stolen vehicle into
Hendry County to the Harlem
Gardens area.
At approximately 12:45 p.m.
on March 26, the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office received a request
from the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office for assistance with
the chase, according to the report.
The probable cause affidavit,
provided by the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office, said that a PBSO
Eagle One Helicopter pilot report-
ed seeing the suspect abandon
the stolen vehicle and flee the
Harlem Gardens area near
Clewiston on foot.
The suspect then entered a
mobile'home on Virginia Avenue,
where he was seen taking off a
white shirt, according.to the affi-
davit.
As the Eagle One helicopter
kept watch on the trailer, the pilot
saw the suspect leaving the resi-
dence with a different shirt and a
bicycle, heading toward Ninth
Court.
Corporal Juan Soto of the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
apprehended the suspect on Mis-
sissippi Avenue almost two hours
later.
According to the affidavit, the
corporal later found out that the a
residence on Ninth Court had
been broken into and a uniform
and a bicycle had been stolen.
The owner of the residence
recognized the clothing the sus-
pect was wearing as that of her
husband's. The bicycle, she said,
belonged to her son.
Feloice Rivers was arrested by
the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office and charged with one third
degree felony count of criminal
mischief, along with two second
degree felony counts of burglary
of a dwelling and a first degree
misdemeanor charge of larceny.
The suspect is held in the Hendry
County jail on a $23,500 bail.

County

rejects case

manager
By Patty Brant
INI Florida
LABELLE --At their March 27
meeting, Hendry County com-
missioners chose not to create a
case manager position in the
county probation office. County
Judge Jim Sloan had presented
the program as a possible way to
help relieve jail overcrowding.
The commissioners balked at
creating another position which
might "grow" into another full
blown department, indicating
the job could be done by current
personnel.
Also at their March 27 meet-
ing, the county commissioners
decided to purchase several lots
located at the south end of the
runway at LaBelle Airport which
are in the Runway Protection
Zone (RPZ), the area at either end
of a runway that offers the great-
est risk of airplane crashes. Up to
$1.5 million may be secured from
the Florida Department of Trans-
portation for airport-related land
purchases. A home has recently
been constructed on another lot
in that area, which may be pur-
chased later.

PAHOKEE Sago Palm
Academy celebrated the re-
opening of its facility on Thurs-
day, March 23.
The School District of Palm
Beach County, in conjunction
with Group 4 Securior and the
Florida Department of Juvenile
Justice, completed the 18-
month long project with great
success, according to Don
Tankersley, the project manager
and assistant principal of the
Sago Palm Academy.
Mr. Tankersley credits the
youth in the completion of the
process.
"I thought the youth were
looking forward to make the re-
opening of the academy possi-
ble," said Mr. Tankersley. "I
appreciate their hard work and
dedication to the project."
Due to storm damage from
Hurricane Wilma in 2005,
which resulted in mold forming
within the walls and air-condi-
tioning duct, the school build-
ing, also known as the Bravo
Building, had to undergo major
renovations to make the facility
safe and secure for the students
and staff to use.
According to Voncia Hay-
wood, the site administrator
and manager for the facility, the
renovation project resulted in
the administrative offices being
based at Belle Glade's West
Tech campus. Students had to
attend some of their classes in

took over the school building
part of the academy in 2000.
Mr. Hasselbach added that


Sago Palm received the distinc-
tion of becoming 'deemed' sta-

Mr. Hasselbach said that the
Sago Palm Academy is the
largest high-risk residential juve-
nile facility in the state of Flori-
da, with an active community

Sexual assault awareness

- free workshop is provided


April is National Sexual Assault
Awareness Month, and April 5 is
National Sexual Assault Awareness
Day. P.B. County Victim Services is
hosting a training workshop,
"MORE THAN WORDS: PREVENT-
ING SEXUAL VIOLENCE IN OUR
COMMUNITY," on April 5 (National
Sexual Assault Day) from noon to
4:30 p.m. at the American Cancer
Society, 621 Clearwater Park Road,
West Palm Beach.
Guest trainer is Assistant Direc-
tor Sharon D'Eusanio of the Divi-
sion of Victim Services and Crimi-
nal Justice Programs, Office of the
Florida Attorney General. Ms. D'Eu-
sanio is a survivor of violent crime
which nearly took her life and left
her blind. She will focus on preveri-
tion and awareness with emphasis
on assisting persons with disabili-
ties. Additional topics include serv-
ices available to victims of crime
and human trafficking.
The April 2007 theme, 'More
Than Words,' conveys the message
that words are not enough to
express the pain of sexual violence.
"Sexual violence affects every
member of this community and it


will take the community working
together to end sexual violence.
Rape not only affects victims, but
their brothers and sisters, parents,
classmates, significant others,
friends everyone they know,"
states Nancy Dixon, Palm Beach
County Director of Victim Services.
Palm Beach County Victim Ser-
vices will join 25 Florida communi-
ties in honoring sexual assault sur-
vivors and their loved ones in our
community.
The Victims Rights Coalition of
Palm Beach County agrees that
April is an opportunity to publicly
support rape victims and their fami-
lies and take a look at the toll sexual
violence takes on our community.
For more information on Sexual
Assault Awareness Month events
or for information on rape services,
contact Victim Services at
(561)355-2418.
State-wide sponsors for these
yearly activities include the Florida
Department of Health Sexual Vio-
lence Prevention Program and the
Florida Council against Sexual Vio-
lence (FCASV).

Pet Corner


Question: Dear Doc Savvy. Is it
true that antifreeze kills pets? Myr-
iah in Belle Glade.
Answer: Hello Myriah, yes, it is
true. Antifreeze has a chemical in
it called ethylene glycol and it is
extremely toxic. Antifreeze for
some reason has an attractive
taste to it, which seems to attract
pets!
There are some pet friendly
antifreeze products out on the
market, but I don't know enough
about them to comment. Ethyl-
ene Glycol causes an acute onset
of renal failure, so in other words,
it puts your pet into kidney failure!
And it is not common to remedy
the problem with a good progno-


sis. Treatment is very time sensi-
tive! There are other common
household
products with
ethylene glycol
in them, too.
Liquid
Plumber is one
of them, so be
careful!
Great ques-
tion Myriah.

School Happenings


Kathryn E. Cunning-
ham/Canal Point
KEC/Canal Point students
were thrilled on Thursday,
March 29 as Anquan Boldin visit-
ed our school! Anquan is a for-
mer KEC/Canal Point Elemen-
tary student and Pahokee High
School football star. He is cur-
rently an NFL football player
with the Arizona Cardinals. He
spoke to third, fourth, fifth and
sixth grade students about work-
ing hard, maintaining good
grades and respecting others. He
also invited everyone to his "Q"
FEST that will take place in Paho-
kee on April Sand 6! THANK
YOU MR. BOLDIN for taking the
time to visit our school!
Spring fling
The Spring Fling was a great
success! Thank you to all who
came out and participated!
Hays' Happenings
Mrs. Hays Third Grade class at
KEC/ Canal Point Elementary
school recently worked in coop-
erative groups to complete our
Science Fair Project.
We did an experiment on
how animals use color to hide in
their environments. We worked
as a team to pick up as many
"insects", one at a time, as we
could in 20 seconds. We repeat-
ed this three times, each time
counting and recording the total
we picked up. We then shared
our results, by listening to each
other's data and collaborating to
prepare our combined results.
Each group presented their find-
ings to be recorded on the class
graph. Everybody had a chance
to participate in the experiment
and we all had fun sharing our
ideas, efforts, and learning to
work as a team. We also know a
little more about camouflage.
Our project was a success!

Safety Class on Tuesday, March

Engineers came and gave water
safety skills instruction. They
demonstrated how each water
safety device can be used to save
lives. At the conclusion of the
class students ran a relay race in
which classes competed by run-
ning distance, putting a life pre-
server on correctly and running
back to allow their teammates to
do the same. We have many
canals and bodies of water in
our community and Mrs. Nelson,
Principal, along with all our staff
feels that any water safety pro-
gram given to our kids is very
beneficial. Our kids want to give
a big shout out to Mr. & Mrs.
Dodge and they look forward to
seeing them again next year.
Spring break
Student are on Spring Break
this week and Mrs. Nelson wants
to give a big shout out to all her
students to have fun but remem-
ber to be safe. See you April 10.


Fourth grader
PALM BEACH Mike Hanlon,
Reading and Writing Coach and
Resource Teacher at Canal Point
Elementary submitted the story
written by fourth grade student,
Jesus Prieto. Jesus recently wrote
the paper for the Palm Beach
Writes Test.
Mr. Hanlon stated, "Jesus Pri-
eto, turned in an extraordinary
paper. Frequently our students
tend not to do well on a Palm
Beach Writes composition at this
time of year especially right after
FCAT. Jesus is the exception."
The topic upon which he wrote
was if I could change something in
the world to make it a better place.
Here is the story written by Jesus
Prieto.
Expository: If you could
change something to make the
world a better place to live.
"If you could change some-
thing in the world to make it a bet-
ter place I would stop wars
between states and countries. A
reason I would change that is
because many innocent lives are
lost. Another reason I would stop
the wars is because presidents of
the states and countries waste
their money on guns, jets, helicop-
ters and more. The last reason I
would stop wars is because there
has to be peace all around the
world. Now, let me expound upon
why I would stop wars.
To begin with, I would stop
wars because I do not like the way
soldiers kill each other. Sometimes
I say to myself in pain, "Why do
they have to be killing one anoth-
er?" I have known for years that
millions of innocent lives are lost
by the wars that are going on. On
tv I see soldiers in their coffins
ready to get buried and I just don't
understand why they have to die. I
see the parents of the dead war-
riors cry to their last drop of tears
and I understand just right.
In addition to stopping the
wars, I do not like the way presi-
dents waste their money on buy-
ing equipment on killing
machines. The presidents could
be using that money on saving the
lives of kids who have nowhere to
go, and no one to take care of
them. The president is only spend-
ing the money on stuff that is use-
less. It is like the president is wast-
ing the money on trash. If I were
the president I would find all the
kids who are in the streets and take
care of them with the money.
Last but not least, peace is the
best thing there could ever be.
Who ever thinks peace is for cra-
zies are the ones that are crazy.
Just imagine peace all over the
world, no wars, no fights, and no
criminals. The world would be a
better place to live. There would
be only happiness.

NFL stars to
participate
By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
CLEWISTON The Clewiston
High School Field House will host
a Youth Skills Camp on Saturday,
April 14.
The organizers, football coach-
es Stephen Boyd and Phillip Sum-
mers, said that the purpose of the
camp is to empower the youth
from Grades six to eight. Accord-
ing to the coaches, they want the
young people to know that posi-
tive things can come out of
Clewiston if everyone works
together toward a mutual goal.
Coach Boyd said his ultimate
goal is to get the youth interested
in playing football.
The camp will be held from 8
a.m. to noon that day, It will
include a tour of the school's field
house facility, an chance to go out
onto the football field to work on
offensive and defensive skills, and
a motivational speaking session
featuring Clewiston natives like
NFL star Eric Green, Lake Worth
Trojans defensive coordinator
Anthony Midgett, college football
player Andrew Powell and L.J.
Taylor.
All four are scheduled to lend
their assistance to Coach Boyd
and Coach Summers during the
camp next weekend.
"We want to showcase these
guys, letting the youth know they
can make it with good grades and
character, combined with athletic
ability," said Coach Summers.
With the abundant athletic tal-
ent in Clewiston, reaching the chil-
dren shouldn't be a problem, but
it has to go hand-in-hand with aca-
demics Coach Summers believes.
"You can be the best athlete in
the world, if you don't have the
grades, then there are not too

tions & columnists.

k A


many places you could go," the
coach said.
He said the guests will be con-
centrating on delivering that mes-
sage when they speak to the kids.
Coach Boyd said that he expects
anywhere from 80 to about 100


students to come out to the camp.
"If we get the kids interested,
then the Clewiston High School
football team will benefit from it
down the road," said Coach Boyd.

degree from Florida A&M Universi-
ty in 1987, Mr. Jackson, a Glades
area native and Glades Central
High School graduate, returned to
the area to serve two stints as an
educator.
Mr. Jackson was a teacher at
Lake Shore Middle School and
West Tech and in his roles there
learned to counsel, mentor and
teach the youth.
He then focused on obtaining
his Master's degree in public
administration and was hired as
the city manager for the city of
South Bay, which lasted six years.
Mr. Jackson then accepted a
position with the South Florida
Water Management District, where
he played an instrumental role in
implementing and promoting envi-
ronmental education and aware-
ness initiatives and assisting agen-
cies in hurricane preparedness and
post-disaster recovery efforts.
Now, as Mr. Jackson takes on
the task of liaison to Commissioner
Santamaria, he said that he is excit-
ed about the opportunities to
directly impact change in the
Glades communities.
"I am depending on the local
leadership to meet the challenges
and provide meaningful and com-
prehensive leadership as it
becomes necessary in meeting
challenges of the day," said Mr.
Jackson.
Already, Mr. Jackson is focusing
his attention on a few early proj-
ects, including completing work on
the South Bay Crossroads Depot


INI/Naji Tobias
Michael E. Jackson, the liai-
son/ombudsman for Palm
Beach County Commissioner
Jess Santamaria, said he is
adamant about the opportuni-
ties that the position will pro-
vide for. He officially began
serving officially as the liaison
for Palm Beach County Com-
missioner Jess Santamaria
on Thursday, March 1.
Project; the city receiving funding
from the county to renovate an
existing railroad cottage on U.S. 27.
According to Mr. Jackson, the work
there is nearly complete.
Taking a closer look at the Belle
Glade area, Mr. Jackson said part of
his focus will be on finding addi-
tional funding to supplement pro-
grams such as the Weed and Seed
program in Belle Glade which
works to "weed" the negative ele-
ments in the downtown area, and
"seed" with positive programs and
initiatives.
He also encourages residents to
participate. An example of that
would be the Resident Education


to Action Program (REAP).
"The REAP program will
empower residents to help them-
selves and become familiar with
self-help programs provided by the
county," said Mr. Jackson.
The REAP program is a six-
week course that allows residents
to look for ways to make improve-
ments to their neighborhoods.
Mr. Jackson said that he would
like to present those who are
unemployed with opportunities to
obtain year-round jobs through the
Workforce Alliance and give them
the opportunity to be trained in the
workforce.
The process, he said, will be
ongoing.
"A viable workforce will sustain
and create a self-reliant communi-
ty," said Mr. Jackson.
"I have a personal commitment
and interest in helping to help oth-
ers succeed."
Mr. Jackson's hobbies outside
of work include playing the saxo-
phone, which he plays for his
church, listening to jazz and gospel
music, reading and spending time
with his family. He has one daugh-
ter, who is currently a medical
school student.
Mr. Jackson said he is looking
forward to his new role and he
credits Commissioner Santamaria
for the opportunity.
"I want to thank Commissioner
Santamaria, for his vision and lead-
ership in seeing the importance of
having a focused attention on the
Glades communities," said Mr.
Jackson.

Teddy bears, balloons and flowers could still be seen at the intersection of Martin Luther
King Avenue and 10th Avenue in South Bay earlier this week from the outpour of support
from family and friends in the wake of an accident that took the life of three-year-old Kenneth
Fuller.
.... ... "" ', '" "7 .-" :,Jr'' ...&,' ',: ;.

,;,;o.:;..,, .i ~










Fuller,


Child

Continued From Page 1
"It was truly a tragedy," said
Teri Barbera, spokeswoman for
the sheriff's office.
The boy's mother, Nakita
Fuller, said that at the time of the
incident, she was at a. friend's
house.
Ms. Fuller was initially told by
a friend of the family who wit-
nessed the accident that the boy
was not hers, but another child.
She later learned, however,
that it was her own son who had
been run over.
According to Ms. Fuller, the
three-year-old boy was playing a


game with another boy, and was
running across Martin Luther
King Avenue to reach a store
nearby. The driver of the tractor
saw the other boy darting across
the street and stopped his vehi-
cle to keep from hitting him. He
didn't realize at that moment
that another younger child was
pinned underneath the vehicle.
According to the report, the
driver said he felt a bump. Wit-
nesses said the driver became
distraught as soon as he saw
what had occurred.
Several days after the acci-
dent, the 3-year-old's family did-
n't place blame on anyone.
"It really hurts, but it was an
accident," said Eura Willingham,


the boy's grandmother.
They spent Tuesday morning
remembering the little boy.
According to Ms. Fuller, her
son was a very active boy who
enjoyed playing with toy cars
and trucks and was a fan of Spi-
derman. The imaginative boy
used to enjoy watching inovies
and telling friends about his
favorite parts after watching an
especially good one.
"K.J. was intelligent and
mature for his age," said Ms.
Fuller.
Ms. Fuller, though, was still in
disbelief.
"I miss my son," said Ms.
Fuller said somberly.

Jeremy An Easter Story


Jeremy was born with a twist-
ed body and a slow mind. At the
age of 12, he was still in second
grade, seemingly unable to learn.
His teacher, Doris Miller, often
became exasperated with him.
He would squirm in his seat,
drool and make grunting noises.
At other times, he spoke clearly
and distinctly, as if a spot of light
had penetrated the darkness of
his brain. Most of the time, how-
ever, Jeremy just irritated his
teacher.
One day, she called his parents
and asked them to come in for a
consultation. As the Forresters
entered the empty classroom,
Doris said to them, "Jeremy really
belongs in a special school. It
isn't fair to him to be with
younger children who don't have
learning problem. Why, there is a
five-year gap between his age
and that of the other students."
Mrs. Forrester cried softly into
a tissue, while her husband
spoke.
"Miss Miller," he said, "there is
no school of that kind nearby. It
would be a terrible shock for
Jeremy if we had to take him out
of school. We know he really
likes it here."
Doris sat for a long time after
they had left, staring at the snow
outside the window. Its coldness
seemed to seep into her soul. She
wanted to sympathize with the
Forresters. After all, their only
child had a terminal illness. But it
wasn't fair to keep him in her
class. She had 18 other young-
sters to teach, and Jeremy was a
distraction. Furthermore, he
would never learn to read and
write. Why waste any more time
trying?
As she pondered the situation,
guilt washed over her.
"Here I am, complaining
when my problems are nothing
compared to. that poor family,"
she thought. "Lord, please help
me to be more patient with Jere-
my."


From that day on, she tried
hard to ignore Jeremy's noises
and his blank stares. Then one
day, he limped to her desk, drag-
ging his bad leg behind him.
"I love you, Miss Miller," he
exclaimed, loud enough for the
whole class to hear. The other
students snickered and Doris'
face turned red. She stammered,
"Wh-why that's very nice, Jere-
my. N-now please take your
seat."
Spring came, and the children
talked excitedly about the com-
ing of Easter. Doris told them the
story of Jesus, and then to
emphasize the idea of new life
springing forth, she gave each of
the children a large plastic egg.
"Now, she said to them, "I
want you to take this home and
bring it back tomorrow with
something inside that shows new
life. Do you understand?"
"Yes, Miss Miller," the children
responded enthusiastically all
except for Jeremy.
He listened intently; his eyes
never left her face. He did not
make his usual noises. Had he
understood what she had said
about Jesus' death and resurrec-
tion? Did he understand the
assignment? Perhaps she should
call his parents and explain the
project to them. That evening,
Doris' kitchen sink stopped up.
She called the landlord and wait-
ed an hour for him to come by
and unclog it. After that, she still
had to shop for groceries, iron a
blouse and prepare a vocabulary
test for the next day. She com-
pletely forgot about phoning
Jeremy's parents.
The next morning, 19 children
came to school, laughing and
talking as they placed their eggs
in'the large wicker basket on Miss
Miller's desk. After they complet-
ed their math lesson, it was time
to open the eggs. In the first egg,'
Doris found a flower.
"Oh, yes, a flower is certainly a
sign of new life," she said. "When


plants peek through the ground
we know that spring is here."
A small girl in the first row
waved her arm.
"That's my egg, Miss Miller,"
she called out.
The next egg contained a plas-
tic butterfly, which looked very
real. Doris held it up.
"We all know that a caterpillar
changes and grows into a beauti-
ful butterfly. Yes, that's new life,
too."
Little Judy smiled proudly and
said, "Miss Miller, that one is
mine."
Next, Doris found a rock with
moss on it. She explained that
moss, too, showed life. Billy
spoke up from the back of the
classroom, "My daddy helped.
me," he beamed.
Then Doris opened the fourth
egg. She gasped. The egg was
empty. Surely it must be Jere-
my's, she thought, and of course,
he did not understand her
instructions. If only she had not
forgotten to phone his parents.
Because she did not want to
embarrass him, she quietly set
the egg aside and reached for
another. Suddenly, Jeremy spoke
up. "Miss Miller, aren't you going
to talk about my egg?"
Flustered, Doris replied, "But
Jeremy, your egg is empty."
He looked into her eyes and
said softly, "Yes, but Jesus' tomb
was empty, too."
Time stopped. When she
could speak again, Doris asked
him, "Do you know why the
tomb was empty?"
"Oh, yes," Jeremy said, "Jesus
was killed and put in there. Then
His Father raised Him up."
The recess bell rang. While
the children excitedly ran out to
the schoolyard, Doris cried. The
cold inside her melted complete-
ly away. Three months later, Jere-
my died. Those who paid their
respects at the mortuary were
surprised to see 19 eggs on top of
his casket, all of them empty.

Easter when 'reality' was



turned upside down


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Among our "collectibles" is a
Model T Ford. It belongs to my
mother and has been the family
for years. My
first acquain-
tance with
Model T's was
when my
youngest
brother bought
one and it was-
n't running.
That night, at
our dinner Samuel S.
table, he told Thomas
us about his
acquisition and said that if my
father would fix the body and my
other brother would repair the
upholstery and if I'd work on the
motor, he'd have a Model T! We
looked at him and listened to his
brash expectations, but we did it
anyway.
He'd drive it around the neigh-
borhood and we'd share with
him in his moment of glory.
There as another amazing thing
about the car. I was told that if
you showed the plans to a mod-
ern engineer, he'd tell you it
wouldn't run. Incredibly, the cul-
mination of modern knowledge
would be overturned by a man
100 years ago who didn't believe
it wouldn't run, and who built fif-
teen million of them to change
the face of the country.
Now the world has been


changed because of Henry Ford's
faith in what seemed impossible
to many. There are other stories
of those who overcame the
impossible all around us. Many
couples have told me about start-
ing their lives together only to be
told that their marriages would
never last and going ahead any-
way and, lo and behold, it
"worked" as they recollect years
later about a faith in a "life togeth-
er" that overcame predictions of
"death." People I've encountered
who have been successful have
told me about the ones who were
quick to throw cold water on
their dreams but they had a
greater vision and won.
The Easter story is a story of
faith in the impossible and the
reality that came from that faith
which changed the world. It
begins with two women going to
anoint a dead body; they certainly
didn't expect any miracle that
day. People had hoped about
Jesus, but now even though their
hope seemed dashed, they would
at least respect His body and do
what they could. They find He is
not there; and then came a ques-
tion for all of us; "Why do you
look for the living among the
dead?" and they were terrified
(Luke 24:5-6)." The question was
followed by a pronouncement;
"He is not here, but has risen
(v.6)." The Women were changed
that day and so were the apostles
who heard them and so were
those who heard from those
apostles and so are we and all


who have heard His message
ever afterward. The day was a
day when faith became a reality;
when the "reality" known before
that day was overturned and life
triumphed over death after all. I
see it happening when the pes-
simists are wrong, when people
hope against all hope and are
rewarded, when everything is
telling us "no!" but there is that
spirit in us that says "Yes!"
because we believe in having life
and having life abundant. Life
does get "punctuated" at times
by those moments when people
triumph, rise above themselves,
expect the worst and find out
things are better than they could
have possibly imagined. Cen-
turies before the miracle of East-
er, God spoke about what has
been set before us; life and death,
blessings and curses. God
admonished us to "choose life
(Deuteronomy 30:19) so that you
and your children may live." That
call is still with us today, but today
we have seen the life of one who
overcame death so that we may
live too. There is that promise
that when we choose life, when
we choose to believe in spite of
everything, choose to have faith,
God will share the victory of the
Lord that was found in that empty
tomb with us. Now we know
what once was only dreamed
about-the Lord is risen, He is
risen indeed! May you have a
happy and blessed Easter; may
God's new life be with you at
Easter and every day.

The promise of Easter: Rolling


stones and crumbled tombstones


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I may be dating myself, but do
you remember the scene in ET
where ET reaches out and touch-
es the potted flower that had died?
It began to grow again. More than
that, it became more beautiful
than it was before it died. This is
the promise of Easter for us.
Touched by the Savior, what once
was dead now lives and is more
beautiful than it was before.
It's all about rolling stones and
crumbling tombstones. Every one
of us has a stone or two that needs
to be rolled away. Every one of us
has something we have buried
and sealed away. Whether we
fully realize it or not, all of us have
a tomb somewhere, and in that
tomb we have put some hope that
has died. It might be a dream, a
relationship or an idea that we've
given up on. Perhaps it's some
guilt, some fear, or some loss
we've never resolved. For whatev-
er reason, it has died and it has
been buried, sometimes marked


with a tombstone remembering
something that was alive but is no
more. Sometimes it gets buried in
a tomb within our hearts and we
seal it with a
massive stone
to try to keep it
hidden.
The Easter
message is a
reminder that
God can and
will make our
tombstones
crumble and John
that He can Hicks
and will roll
away the stone on our heart-tomb
- no matter how big or massive.
By the power of God, the stone at
Easter was rolled away. By the
power of God, stones still roll! God
will roll away your stone no mat-
ter how large or heavy or immov-
able you might think it is. God will
crumble the tombstones we have
set up and life will be brought to
those places where we thought
everything was dcad.
All that Jesus ever taught and
all that Jesus ever did was buried


behind that stone that sealed His
tomb. The forces of evil that
opposed God's great work in
Jesus thought that they had killed
it all. They thought that they had
buried it forever. They thought that
they had won.
But God had another idea. The
stone was rolled away. Jesus was
resurrected. God won! And that
rolling stone becomes the sym-
.bol of God's "YES!" to the all of
the "No's" of the world. The
rolling stone of Easter is the sign
that God's goodness will never be
defeated, that God's truth will
never be denied, that God's love
will overcome every hate, and
that God's life will overcome
every death.
We go through life knowing
that we are dying every day as we
live, and knowing that there are
Places in our hearts that have
already died, but also knowing
that God promises that the story
isn't over yet. Rolling stones and
crumbling tombstones, what
once was dead, now lives. God
can and will roll away our stones
and rea-, us fror., ur gla lu.:

Hendry Speedway reports race results


HENDRY COUNTY Saturday
night racing action is alive and well
at Hendry County Speedway. Sixty
drivers took to the track in seven
different classes making for an
exciting night of great racing.
The Street Stock Division was
the first up. The heat race went
smoothly for everyone except #12
Randy Glover (West Palm Beach)
who lost an engine. John Wilson
(Okeechobee) led the first four laps
until Jesse Brown (Clewiston)
advanced to the lead. Wilson was
able to get the advantage on the
first lap of the feature until Brown
got by on lap three. The race went
caution free for the twenty lap dura-
tion. Jesse Brown took the win.
While John Wilson held off
Tommy Hill (Clewiston) who had
returned the 1H back to duty this
weekend. Portus Mellette (Royal
Palm Beach) and Joel Goldfrank
(West Palm Beach) rounded out
the top five.
On the first lap of the Bomber
heat there was a pile up in turn one.
Four cars went to the pit. The night
was over for #57 Carl Perman
(West Palm Beach) and #17 Jose
Valdez (Miami). Ernie Turner
(Labelle) and Carol Vanwagner
(Labelle) battled for the lead. Turn-
er spun coming out of turn four on
lap three giving the lead to Vanwag-
ner. One lap later, Ed Steinhoff
found the groove and took the lead
for the rest of-the race. The feature
was all Steinhoff who lead the race
wire to wire. Steve Colon ran sec-
ond but was later disqualified not
passing tech inspection. Carol Van-
wagner and Ernie Turner were set-
ting up another good battle when
Turner's engine apparently let go
on lap twelve. Vanwagner would
go on to receive the second place
honors. Ken Sabino (Davie) and
Joe Minnitti (Davie) also did not
pass tech inspection giving Chip
Bache (Davie) the third spot.
The first heat race in the Sports-
man Division had an incident
between Tom Lusk (Okeechobee)
and David Bratman (West Palm


Beach) in the first corner. Lusk lost
his left rear wheel.
Michael Cherry (Valrico) found
it with the front of his car. He
launched the front of the car at least
six feet in the air. It was very spec-
tacular for all who had the chance
to see it. Cherry decided to take the
car to the pits and check it out
before the feature. After the com-
plete restart Bill Lassiter (Port St.
Lucie) had a flat right front on lap
two leaving Travis Drapal (Labelle)
and Mark Taylor (Moore Haven) to
do battle for the win.
Taylor took the checkers.
Heat race two was all Rick Miller
(Stuart until a spin on lap six gave
the lead to Calvin Filingame (West
Palm Beach). Jesse Brown (Clewis-
ton) finished second driving David
Simpson's car #0 for the night. The
feature would end early for Brown
with some distributor problems.
Calvin Filingame was as fast as I
had ever seen him. He led the first
14 laps until Michael Cherry took
the lead. Immediately after the cau-
tion flag flew for passenger door
bars that had fallen off Cherry's car
in turn three. Cherry would have to
start in the rear with just six laps
left. One lap after the restart #3 Joe
Henke (Naples) set up a pass com-
ing out of turn two and took the
lead. Calvin Filingame and Rick
Miller swapped the second spot
until another caution with only two
laps left. Miller tried hard to get
under Henke on the front straight at
the restart. Henke was able to hold
him off and capture his first feature
win in the #3 car. Miller finished
second and Filingame third.
Michael Cherry got by Bob Stein-
metz (Naples) by about a foot at
the line to take fourth.
Mini Stocks were 11 entries
strong. Glenn Bidwell (Loxahatch-
ee) was the class of the field. He led
every lap of the heat race and the
feature.
Brian Bail (RPB) worked his
way up to second in the heat.
That was also where he
would spend the entire feature.


On lap 7 #75 Paul Phillips got
turned up the track and hit the
wall hard in turn four.
A lot of drivers battled for the
third spot including Ken Tubbs
(Boca Raton), Wayne Stout
(Sebring), Charles Perman
(West Palm Beach) and Gary
Hart (LaBelle). In the end it was
#57 Zack Perman (Ft. Pierce)
with the spot. Stout finished
fourth and Hart fifth.
Mini Mods was #10 Wayne
Hildebrand (Okeechobee) win-
ning the heat race. #21 Jack
McClain (Loxahatchee) was in the
lead of the first half of the feature
until Hildebrand got by on lap eight
going on to win the feature.
McClain ran second and Shawn
Reiss (Jupiter) finished third..
Pure Stock Division was 15 cars
strong this evening. Heat one
Tommy Hill (Clewiston) showed
his winning driving style by passing
six yes six cars in the first corner to
take the lead on the first lap.
Everyone slid high up the race
track and he was clear to drive by
on the bottom. Heat race two was
Conrad Molter (Naples) on some
new tires taking the win over the
eight car field. The Feature was
Tommy Hill From the start. While
Jonny Mosely (Belle Glade) and
Skip Talbot (Loxahatchee) traded
the second spot back and forth.
On lap twelve Skip Talbot found
his way by Tommy Hill to take the
lead. Hill finished second and
Moseley third.
Brian Morgan and Conrad
Molter roufided out the top five.
April 7, will bring back the Flori-
da Mini Sprints. Exciting winged
sprints with motorcycle engines
and 15 second lap times. Hope to
see all my good race track buddies
there. Cow-Boy out.
Also remember that April 7, we

Please bring your bikes and hel-
mets. There will be an Easter sur-
prise.

Drought leaves boat ramps high and dry on lake


While some ramps
are useable, boaters
urged to use caution

By Loma Jablonski
INI Florida
LAKE OKEECHOBEE There
is no doubt that the Lake Okee-
chobee area is in the middle of a
severe drought. Lawns are
brown, plants are withering and
water restrictions have been put
in place. But, nowhere is the
drought more evident than on
Lake Okeechobee.
Last year at this same time,
water levels on the 730-square-
mile lake were at 14.72 feet. On
Monday, April 2, the lake level was
at 10.48 feet and dropping.
On May 24, 2001, the lake
dropped to a record low of 8.97
feet. There is serious concern that
this could be the year that the
record will be broken.
Low lake levels mean some
boat ramps around the big lake
are no longer usable. Others may
be used with extreme caution,
since the end of the ramps may
no longer be in enough water to
float a boat.
Boaters are also encouraged to
use caution while out on the lake,
as lower lake levels mean even
experienced anglers may find
their boats beached on a sandbar.
or colliding with submerged
debris.
In a community where many
residents rely on Lake Okee-
chobee for their livelihoods, the
possibility of the record being,


INI/Katrina Elsken
As the level of Lake Okeechobee drops, the pier on the north
end of the lake can be seen, Normally the water comes up to,
the end of the pier. This week, visitors could walk underneath
the pier on dry land almost to the end.


broken is not good news.
"This drought is killing the
economy," stated Captain Mike
Shallan, a professional Lake
Okeechobee fishing guide.
"Guide services and tackle shops
are starting to feel the affect of
low water conditions. I've been
fishing Lake Okeechobee for
nearly 30 years and this is as bad
as it gets."
According to Capt. Shallan, the
fishing is still really good if you
can get out past the grass line.
But, the water is so low that get-
ting there and back is becoming
more and more difficult.
The water has dropped to a
level that has made some of the


public boat ramps around the
lake unusable. Others are still
operational, but extreme caution
is advised when using them.
The boat ramps at Okee-Tantie
Marina on the north side of the
lake are operational, but signs
have been erected to mark the
ends of the ramps.
When the new Scott Driver
facility was built (near Okee-
Tantie), longer ramps were
installed. As a result, there are cur-
rently no problems launching or
loading from these ramps.
The ramps behind the J&S Fish
Camp bar are no longer useable.
Where once there was ample
water to launch, there is now


INI/Lorna Lablonski
Low water levels mean that some canals around the lake are
completely dry, leaving boats resting on the dirt or vegetation
at the bottom of the canal.


nothing but mud. The public
ramp at J&S Fish Camp can still
be used, but with great caution.
There is only a narrow strip where
the water is deep enough to float
a boat.
The private ramp at Taylor
Creek Lodge has been dredged
out and is useable. But, property
manager Bill Palmer, strongly
advises to use common sense and
caution when using the ramp.
The ramps at Harney Pond are
good, but there is no longer
access to the lake because the
water level is so low. As with all
the other useable ramps, caution
is advised.
In Moore Haven, the Alvin


Ward, Sr. boat ramp is still being
used but boaters are cautioned to
keep their trailers in the middle of
the ramp to avoid any problems.
Glades County Commissioner
Russell Echols explained that
back in 1990-91, the ramp was
extended and more work was
done on it in 2000 which has
helped the ramp in case of
drought.
The public boat ramp in Belle
Glade also useable. But, due to
the low water, storm debris is sur-
facing and extreme caution
should be used when navigating
in this area.
The public boat ramp at
Pahokee is open. Officials ask


boaters to use caution as water
levels are low.
With the water level low, hurri-
cane debris scattered over the
lake bottom may be close enough :
to the surface to be hazardous.
The public boat ramp at:
Clewiston is also open. According
to Angie Kelly, Clewiston Recre-
ation Director, the city is urging
residents to use the boat ramps.
witRfiaution, and be aware of
how the drought has affected the
entire lake.
Okeechobee County Sheriff
Paul C. May and his staff have
already made plans to borrow air-
boats from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) to use in lake search
and rescue. Several'volunteers
have also come forward and
offered the use of their airboats
and airplanes for search and res-
cue missions.
Sheriff May also stated that the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office benefit bass tournament
scheduled to take place in April
has been canceled. The tourney
was to raise money for the Sher-
iff's Boys' Ranch.
"We are concerned about the
safety of those anglers coming
from around the state who are
not familiar with Lake Okee-
chobee and could possibly get in
trouble due to the low lake level,"
stated Sheriff May.
