BG selects interim manager


William Underwood
hired by
unanimous vote

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE At a special
meeting held on Tuesday night at
the city hall chambers, Belle
Glade city commissioners chose
William Underwood, II, as the
city's new interim city manager.


In a close vote, Mr. Under-
wood was the top vote-getter,
beating out Lester Baird and the
team of Sharon Merchant and
Keith James for the position.
Another candidate, Matthew
Brock, withdrew his name from
consideration after securing a
contract with another city,
according to human resources
director Vivian Hunter.
The candidates were ranked
by a uniform evaluation sheet
that was filled out by the five com-
missioners.


Items on the evaluation sheet
included staffing level experi-
ence, interpersonal/social sensi-
tivity skills and professional
demeanor, among other criteria.
When the numbers were tal-
lied, City Clerk Debbie Buff
announced that, out of a score of
500 each commissioner rated
the candidates from a score of 0
to 100 Mr. Underwood scored
the highest with a score of 467.
He scored nearly 90 points more
than the second-closest candi-
date.


Black Gold Jubilee: Fun at event


Mayor Donald Garrett and
Commissioner Ray Torres
Sanchez said they were
impressed by Mr. Underwood's
demeanor throughout the inter-
view process.
When asked about manage-
ment style, Mr. Underwood said
that a collaborative approach is
the best way to be an effective city
manager. Mr. Underwood said, in
answering another interviewer's
question, that a citizen-oriented
government will generally pro-
duce a good outcome.


Almost immediately after fin-
ishing the comment, Mr. Under-
wood asked Commissioner
Gwendolyn Asia-Williams about
how he answered her questions.
"Did I hit a home run?" asked
Mr. Underwood.
Commissioner Asia-Williams
replied that he had hit third base,
with the rest of the commission-
ers laughing at the comment.
To approve the hiring of Mr.
Underwood, the commissioners

Chihuahua Race


About 50 dogs, 80
people came out for
the annual event

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE In the heat-
ed contest, the Chihuahua Relay
Race at this year's Black Gold
Jubilee at the Belle Glade Mari-
na, three dogs made it to the
finals, but only one would
emerge victorious. When the
dust settled, Widget was the
winner.
Benny came in a close sec-
ond, with Taco Bell finishing in
third place on April 21.
Noal Lawshe and Nicole Tip-
pie, from Lake Worth, said their
dog had a great time participat-


ing in the relay race. They point-
ed to their dog's lively 'puppi-
ness' as the biggest factor in Wid-
get taking home the top prize.
"I knew that she would do
well, but I didn't expect her to
do as well as she did," Mr. Law-
she said surprised.
Widget is a nine-year-old
female dog, a mixed breed:
Lhasa Apso and Pomeranian.
Both Mr. Lawshe and Ms.
Tippie said that the race proved
to be an enjoyable way to spend
the afternoon.
The event is hosted by local
Veterinarian Dr. Noelle Savedoff.
State Senator David Aronberg
made an appearance at the
event, serving as the master of
ceremonies for the relay race.

ATV CONCERN: In concern of the non riding ATVs and vehicles
at the lake in Belle Glade. Why is it that we are supposed to be mess-
ing up the growth of the habitat with rubber tires and the manage-
ment area for hunting have the right to ride full tracks that are made
of steel? They aren't damaging anything. Why is there nowhere for
people to ride anymore? About liability, have all riders sign a waiver
to be liable for themselves. There has never been any fight, stabbing
or any of that kind of violence out there. But when you try to hang
out uptown, you get run off or put in jail because of fights. Please
have some consideration here, there has never been any trouble out
there.

plan for townhouses


By Naji Tobias

luxury townhouse gated com-

from the prospective buyers and
the community-at-large alike
has been overwhelming so far.
"The feedback that I got was
that there was a great need for
housing here in Belle Glade and
the surrounding areas," said Mr.
Kirschen. "It's good for the
Glades area, period."
Mr. Kirschen said that the
development, to be built on
19.99 acres at the end of Avenue
M alongside Glades General
Hospital, is a much-needed proj-
ect.
He said that, provided there
are no major hurricanes or other
storms in the Glades area, the
townhouses should be complete
by the end of 2008.
Mr. Kirschen, along with vari-
ous community leaders, hopes
the units will have a positive
impact on the economy of the
city.
"It will start a whole new era
of what people will think of the
Glades area," Mr. Kirschen said
emphatically.


According to the developers,
Hillsboro Estates will be cen-
tered,on a two-acre lake featur-
ing an island with a club house,
tropical pool and a barbeque
area. It will be designed by Dou-
glas Root Architects of Boca
Raton.
Mr. Kirschen said there will
be a choice of eight designer
models, with prices starting at
$229,900.
The target market is individu-
als who work in the Glades area
but have to drive long com-
mutes to get here, Mr. Kirschen
said.
Commissioner Gwendolyn
Asia-Williams, along with Leon-
drae Camel, echoed that senti-
ment.
Commissioner Asia-Williams
said that the development could
ignite personal development.
"If somedn'e that you know
has been ",ale to purchasee a
home,.then the person will want
to do better for themselves in the
quest to purchasing the Ameri-
can dream," she said.
Plans for the project were
recently approved by the city.
Mr. Camel said he is excited
about the possibilities that the
project could bring to the Glades
area.
"With Hillsboro Estates being
one of the developers in this city,
Belle Glade is on the move to
luring additional developers to
spur growth within our city,"
said Mr. Camel.

Letters to the Editor


Escape to fun
Dear Editor,
I took part in the "Escape
from Torry Island" Adventure
Race and it was fantastic. My
compliments to Kenny Lutz and
Rachel Peregoy for doing such a
fabulous job of creating the race,
setting it up, and then pulling it
off.
When I found out about it, I
was not sure what would be in
store for the racers since it had
never been done before on Torry
Island or elsewhere in the
Glades, but I invited many of my
running friends on the coast to
come out and try it.
All I can say is that Kenny,
Rachel, and all of the volunteers
did an outstanding job. Kenny's
father, Kenneth, built the simulat-
ed rock wall for climbing and set
up the zip line over the rock pit.


He then supervised the mud run
portion of the race-my shoes
will never be clean again, but I
will wear that mud with pride.
(There would have been a canoe
course, but the lake level was too
low.)
The teachers and students
were a credit to the Glades as
they manned the checkpoints
and handled the three mental
tests. I never realized how diffi-
cult it is to identify a mole's clavi-
cle, perform a litmus test or solve
a water-in-the-cup problem
while I am suffering from oxygen
debt, but the students were most
helpful and friendly.
The seven miles of mountain
bike trails and the three miles of
jungle trails on foot were a real
test of endurance. It is my guess
that the distances were ten to
twenty percent longer than that if
you count the rough terrain.


Every racer or team had a map
and checklist. There were twelve
checkpoints, some of them
almost hidden so that no could
take a shortcut through the jun-
gle. Missing any checkpoint
would cause the racer or team to
receive a ten minute penalty
added to their time.
After the race most of the par-
ticipants walked over and
enjoyed the booths at the Black
Gold Jubilee.
One of my friends, in a double
negative sentence that would
make an English teacher cringe
said, "There is no way that I am
not coming back here again next
year!"
There will be some stories
told over on the coast when the
racers get to their next race about
the large alligator at one of the
check points, the snakes in the
path that nearly made some


female bike riders crash and the
alligators in the water beneath
the cable everyone had to ride
down across the rock pit. The
trolley was merely two hand-
held grips and a pulley. The only
thing that kept anyone from
becoming dinner for a gator was
"holding on for dear life." Those
avoiding the zip line over the
gators would receive a ten-
minute penalty-Black Gold's
own "Fear Factor."
I told Kenny that he is going to
have a problem next year-I pre-
dict the number of racers will
double or triple. I encourage
those who are interested in see-
ing how much fun they missed to
check out the race website:
www.torryisland.com. Photos
will be posted there soon, so
keep checking back.
Respectfully,
Wayne A. Boynton


Finizio cleared of 'illegal recordings'


PBSO finds no
evidence to support
pursuing charges

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Former Belle
Glade City Manager, whose
employment was terminated ear-
lier this year, has been cleared of
at least one of the criminal wrong-
doing charges leveled against
him.
When he was fired, Mr. Finizio
was accused of having illegally
recorded conversations with indi-
viduals who were unaware that
he had been doing so.


A subsequent investigation by
the Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office has found that the former
manager was within his rights to
have kept the phone messages in
question.
An investigator met with Mr.
Finizio for an interview at the Dis-
trict'8 substation in Wellington to
address the allegations, according
to an official report. The focus of
the meeting was addressing the
allegations that he had secretly
recorded conversations with city
officials.
Brought up during the ques-
tioning was a tape containing
audio featuring Pahokee Mayor
J.P. Sasser. While the contents of
the tape were not discussed, Mr.
Finizio who delivered the cas-

sette tape to Pahokee City Com-
missioner Henry Crawford in
early May said the recording
was made from a message left on
his personal cell phone.
Because his phone is capable
of holding the messages for a few
days before they are erased auto-
matically, Mr. Finizio argued, he
recorded the message onto a
more permanent storage format.
According to the report, Mr.
Finizio was also asked if he had
secretly recorded a meeting with
now-Belle Glade Mayor Don Gar-
rett and city human resource
director Vivian Hunter.
Mr. Finizio said an angry Com-
missioner Garrett had entered his
office upset and gave permission
to record the discussion. Mr.


Finizio said Commissioner Garrett
at first did not agree with being
recorded, but later said, "yes."
He said that although he had
permission, he was not able to
make a recording because the
batteries in his cassette player had
gone dead.
Based on his investigation, the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office found no evidence to sup-
port allegations against Mr.
Finizio.
"All recordings were mes-
sages, voluntarily left on Mr.
Finizio's voicemail and/or
answering machine and none
were improperly obtained," the
report read.

Property appraiser


awards scholarships


WEST PALM BEACH Palm
Beach County Property Apprais-
er Gary R. Nikolits, CFA, will
present $1,000 scholarships to
five college-bound students at 3
p.m., May 9. There were 110
applicants this year. Funds are
raised through volunteer
employee donations from partic-
ipants in Friday Casual-Dress
Day. An Employee Scholarship
Committee selects the winners.
This is the 14th year the Property
Appraiser's Office has awarded
scholarships to local high school
seniors.
The 2007 winners are:
Alianta Alcin from Glades
Central Community High School
in Belle Glade


Yasmany Dominguez from
Jupiter High School
Rachel Kaufman from
Wellington Christian High
School
Savanna Hudson from G-
Star School of the Artso in West
Palm Beach
Elizabeth Yance from
Glades Day School in Belle Glade
With the 2007 scholarships,
the Property Appraiser's Office
has awarded $80,000 in scholar-
ships.
To be eligible for the scholar-
ship, a student must be a resi-
dent of Palm Beach County and
have a 3.0 GPA. The college or
junior college they plan to attend
must be accredited.


Glades PATCH (Planned
Approach to Community Health)
Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Committee encourages our teens
to join hundreds of thousands of
teens nationwide who are
expected to participate in the
sixth annual National Day to Pre-
vent Teen Pregnancy on May 2.
The purpose of the National Day
is to focus the attention of teens
on the importance of avoiding
too-early pregnancy and parent-
hood. On the National Day, teens
nationwide are asked to go to
www.teenpregnancy.org and
take a short, scenario-based
"quiz" that asks young people
what they would do in a number
of sexual situations.
The message of the National
Day is straightforward: Sex has
consequences. The online quiz
(available in English and Span-
ish) delivers this message directly
to teens and challenges them to
think carefully about what they
might do "in the moment."
"Teens tell us that the real-life
scenarios presented in the
National Day quiz help them
think about what they would do
in similar situations," said Sarah
Brown, Director of the National
Campaign to Prevent Teen Preg-
nancy. "The simple and direct
message of the Quiz is: sex is
serious, have a plan.
Why a National Day to Pre-
vent Teen Pregnancy? Despite
hitting the lowest level in 30
years, 31 percent of teenage girls
get pregnant at least once before
they reach age 20. Many teens
say they are concerned about
pregnancy, but still think "it can't
happen to me." But it does to
750,000 girls every year. And the
number one reason teen guys
and girls give for not using pro-
tection is that they weren't plan-
ning to have sex and that it "just
happened." Our online quiz is
designed to help teens come up
with personal plans for avoiding


pregnancy.
Making a Difference: Over
800,000 individuals took the
National Day Quiz in 2006. A sur-
vey of the some of the teens that
participated in the 2006 National
Day indicates:
83 percent said the Quiz
made them think about what
they might do in such situations;
69 percent said the Quiz
made the risks of sex and teen
pregnancy seem more real to
them; and
58 percent said the Quiz
made them think about things
they hadn't thought about
before.
Why participate in the Nation-
al Day? Children Services Coun-
cil, February 2007 Update -
"When births are examined by
geographic area, the Glades area
is notable. Although only 4 per-
cent of births are to mothers
residing in this area, approxi-
mately 25 percent of all births to
mothers 14 and younger are to
mother's' who reside in the
Glades" "The highest number of
repeat births occur to mothers
residing in the Glades, Lake
Worth and Delray. For more
information: http://www.cscp-
bc.org/MiscPDF_Files/Birth-
Outcomes-Update.pdf.
Currently, the PATCH Teen
Pregnancy Prevention Commit-
tee is working diligently with the
health department, school health
nurses, faith leaders, parents and
community agencies to come up
with a prevention plan. Glades
PATCH meets the third Tuesday
of each month at 9 a.m. at the
Dorothy G. Wilford Center,
Glades Pioneer Terrace in Belle
Glade. We-invite agencies, pro-
fessionals, clergy and concerned
citizens to join us and help make
a difference in health related
issues in the Glades. For more

tact Terri Calsetta, PATCH Presi-
dent at (561) 996-6571 Ext. 444.

parents were in attendance and
were very appreciative of the meet-
ing and the information that was

important that they complete the
questionnaire and return them to
the school as soon as possible.

of the regular school uniform. The
following classes received a special
treat for having 100 percent partici-
pation in this initiative: Mrs. Zavala,
Mrs. Challancin, Mrs.Tolbert and

Eco-Tourism site: The Belle Glade Mounds


By Nancy Dale
Special to INI
How to tell time by a shadow
stick, demonstrated by Kye
Ewing, data base manager at the
Archibald Research Center in
Lake Placid, was one of the
many lessons learned along the
hike by "Save Our Creek Board"
members and a dozen visitors
on the way to Ft. Center, the
ancient Belle Glade Indian
Mounds near Lakeport and
future eco-tourism site.
To commemorate the memo-
ry of these ancient peoples who
built a sophisticated village
along the ox-bow of Fisheating
Creek, the group hiked three
miles along Banana Grove Road
to the site in the State Manage-
ment Area that will soon be a
developed as an eco-tourism
attraction with observation
tower, information kiosks along
the trail, and picnic area to enjoy
the silent serenity in miles of
magnificent open prairie.
The Belle Glade site was
excavated by Dr. Sears, Florida
Atlantic University archeologist,
hired by Lykes Brothers when
they owned the property, to
recover and protect the many
artifacts buried within the vari-
ous middens. Save the Creek
group hiked deep within the
scrub and palmettos to find the
"charnel ponds" or funeral
grounds where the Indians
burned their human remains
and deposited them in the
ponds. As part an eco-tourism
development in Glades County,
"Save Our Creek" is anticipating
the receipt of $320,000 in grant
monies from the State to reno-
vate the Cypress Knee Museum
just south of Fisheating Creek
Campground to tie into a hiking
trail to Ft. Center. Member Deen
Mountain, experienced trail
guide, will be working with the
Fish and Wildlife Commission
management to designate vari-
ous hiking/biking trails through-
out Fisheating Creek Wildlife
Management Area into Ft. Cen-
ter.
Ironically, not far from the
ancient Indian Mounds is a sign
marking old fort civil war days Ft.
Center, one of the many Union
army outposts throughout the
state where troops were
deployed as "bounty hunters" to
round-up and remove Seminole
Indians from Florida. Fortunate-
ly, however, the resilient and
clever Seminoles survived, and

today provide a major contribu-
tion to Florida's economy and
cultural heritage.
Conducting business at picnic
tables beneath the expansive
shade of an arching oak at the
Indian Mound site, other busi-
ness was discussed. Ellen Peter-
son brought up the accessibility
of Fisheating Creek Campground
for local festivals in the park that
other State Parks provide. Harris
Friedman, Secretary of "Save
Our Creeks" indicated he would
look into the feasibility. The
Board further re-stated the rec-
ommendation to the State Man-
agement Board that Fisheating
Creek be open all along its 72
miles for canoeing/kayaking as
designated by the State Agree-
ment in 1999 when Lykes sold
the land to the State.
Peterson stated that this will
expand the eco-tourism econo-
my and development in Glades
County to other established
attractions such as Gatorama,
Vanishing Species, and Fisheat-
ing Creek that lures thousands of
nature-loving tourists from
urban areas to refresh and
regenerate in the last pristine
wilderness area around Lake
Okeechobee.
The trail to Ft. Center is open
to the public, although Wildlife
Biologist, Grant Steelrian said
signs have not yet been posted
and the gate remains locked
until the parking lot it completed


(the group had to climb over the
fence to access the trail). The
"Save Our Creek" hikers pro-
ceeded, but Harris Friedman,
Secretary, said he had tried to
secure a professional archaeolo-
gist to provide a guided tour of
the site but none was available
on the designated date.
In 1999, when the Glades
County Economic Developm.nt
Council was founded by citizens
of Glades County with the assis-
tance of graduate students and
professors in the School of Busi-
ness at Florida Gulf Coast Uni-
versity, eco-tourism was slated
as the number one preference to
expand job opportunities and
the economy with further
emphasis expressed in 2006
(with recommendations and
economic assistance of the State
"Main Street" organization) and
"Visioning" meetings to revital-
ize the 1900s historic buildings
on Main Street Moore Haven to
develop a riverwalk, another
eco-tourism and economic
attraction for the estimated
18,000 pleasure boats that ply
the Caloosahatchee River yearly
crossing from the Atlantic Ocean
to the Gulf of*Mexico.
In other business, the Amber
Bratz, Treasurer, reported that
there are 88 members bf "Save
Our Creek" and that memnber-
ship was still $10, individual, $15
family and $75 for life member-
ship.


Visitor Rhonda Roff, Presi-
dent of the "Save It Now Glades
County" (SING) group reported
that as part of'grass roots efforts
regarding costs to the citizens
and concerns to the environ-
ment from the coal powered
plant proposed near Ft. Center,
and number of members were
going to testify during the
upcoming Public Service Com-
mission hearings in Tallahassee.
The Governor and Cabinet will
make the final decision regard-
ing the approval/disapproval for
the coal plant project. Ft. Center
is located a few miles north of
the proposed FPL coal powered
energy plant. (Save Our Creek
member, Bob Hummel said he
attended a recent task force
meeting in Sebring with other
Washington Environmental Pro-
tection Agency (EPA), Depart-
ment of Interior, Governor's
Office officials, where concern
was expressed about the effects
on.the environment of the pro-
posed coal burning power
plant).
After a picnic lunch and relax-
ing in the cool breeze, the group
hiked around some of the curv-
ing mounds rising within the
native overgrowth attempting to
follow the diagrams laid out of
the site by Dr. Sears in his book

ting him in the left hand. The inci-


dent happened at approximately

release said.
For residents of the Glades area,
the SFWMD has placed the resi-

Jesus Rodriguez, the media rela-

"The large permit users have to

Rodriguez.
Mr. Rodriguez said the Florida

with a targeted completion date

Plans to find a suitable loca-
tion have failed after contamina-
tion tests revealed the presence
of arsenic in at least one of the
locations being proposed.
Residents previously were
concerned that the football team
would not have a field to play for
its upcoming 2007 season if Lair
Field were torn down to make
room for the new school. Some
of the options the team had was
to play all of their home games
on Glades Central's Effie C. Grear
Field, or play all 10 of their regu-
lar season games on the road.
Now, the school board is cur-
rently looking at a 17-acre parcel
across from the middle-senior
high school, according to the
mayor.
"I think we deserve to have a
first-class athletic complex just
like the other schools on the
coast," said Mayor Sasser.
Plans to Improve
Education
According to the Palm Beach
County School Board, the pro-
posed total budget for the new
middle school is $34 million. The
school's capacity will be 700 stu-
dents, with about 480 students
set to enroll once the school
opens.
The school board said
improvements will also be made
to the current high school,
including the renovation of the
high school auditorium.
According to Mayor Sasser,
the Children's Services Council
and Palm Beach County Com-
munity Services will have offices
at the high school and the
Department of Health will be
operating as a clinic there, sup-
ported by the Palm Beach Coun-
ty Health Care District.
"I think that with the con-
struction of the mew middle
school, it shows the commit-
ment that the Palm Beach Coun-
ty School Board is making to the
citizens of Pahokee," said the
mayor.
The mayor added that the
education of the students is
paramount to how the commu-


Finizio
Continued From Page 1
voted on the issue, with Commis-
sioner Sanchez making the
motion and Mayor Garrett offering
a second. Mr. Underwood was
selected by unanimous vote.
In a move that seemed to sur-
prise the commission, Mr. Under-
wood said he is willing to serve as
the interim city manager for one
year, but no less. He added that he
would like to be shown a commit-
ment of time or he would respect-
fully decline the interim city man-
ager position.
"Because of past activities, I
consider one year as the interim


city manager important," said Mr.
Underwood.
Most of the commissioners
agreed.
Commissioner Sanchez said he
had no problem with it. Commis-
sioner Shelly Miller added that the
commission should vote in favor
of a one-year contract, for the sake
of stability. Mayor Garrett, chimed
in, saying that he doesn't want the
city to have any more bad publici-
ty. As a result, Mr. Underwood was
offered a one-year contract by the
commissioners.
The proposed contract will
include a $125,000 yearly salary
with a host of benefits, including a
company automobile. Mr. Under-
wood asked the commissioners
not to include severance pay in the


contract.
Commissioner Sanchez
motioned the contract, with the
mayor seconding it.
The motion carried, with a 4-1
vote. Vice Mayor Mary Kendall
opposed the vote.
Further discussions of the
terms of the contract, along with
the swearing in of Mr. Under-
wood's office, will be held tomor-
row at 5 p.m. in the city hall cham-
bers.
Mr. Underwood said he is look-
ing forward to serving the city.
"I think that the only way we
could move forward is that every-
one works together," said Mr.
Underwood.

nity will grow as a whole.
"Our job as a community is to
commit ourselves to educating
young people," said Mayor Sasser.
Pahokee Blue Devils varsity
football coach Leroy Foster
echoed those sentiments, saying
that the football team is waiting
and anticipating seeing whether
or not the school board will
actually follow through with the
proposed action.
"Hopefully, we'll be treated
like the other schools in the dis-
trict," Coach Foster said. "If not,
we'll do what we've always
done."
Coach Foster said that the
decision to keep Lair Field intact
for the 2007 season eliminates
problems and takes away dis-
tractions from the team.
The coach added that the ini-
tial ideas would have been a set-
back on their goal to reach the
Class 2B state title game again
this year.
"Now we can focus strictly on
football," Coach Foster said.
Spring football begins with
their initial practice on Tuesday,
May 1, with their spring game to
be held on Thursday, May 24 at
William T. Dwyer High School.
The coach said that the game
will serve as a measuring stick to
see if the Blue Devils are where
they expect to be defending
their Class 2B state champi-
onship.
"If not, then we'll see what
we have to work on to get back
to the state game this year," said
Coach Foster.
City Manager Lillie Latimore,
along with the city commission-
ers and the City of Pahokee, are
considering the creation of an
education board made up of citi-
zens to work with the school
administration.
The city manager added that
the concept has worked in other
municipalities where citizens
working with the education sys-
tem have been beneficial in solv-
ing various problems.
"Politics should not be an
issue here," the city manager
said. "This is about improving
the quality of life in our commu-
nity, strengthening the labor
force and promoting the future
of our youth."

Why school shootings .

like Virginia Tech? .
a,, TAT nr I I A A ITRAIRI- ,af .. .
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ peq ,f ., -r^-r. n,, ,,' nmr n -r,,, _A '. -"~l CI C Ar''..-:


There is no question that what a
person reads has a profound effect
on him. Many have come to the
Lord through the reading of the
Scripture. Many others have been
led into skepticism and doubt by
reading some atheist's or agnostic's
material.
What made America great in
time pastwas the faith it had in God.
The faith in part was communicat-
ed to the young in public school. It
was the desire of the founders of
America that our education be Bible
based. Noah Webster called the
"Schoolmaster to America" saw his
duty in teaching to rescue "poor
creatures from the slavery of sin and
Satan by setting the word of God for
a lantern to our feet and a light to
our paths."
One of the school textbooks in
the past was McGuffey's Reader.
Notice the spiritual emphasis found
in this selected passage from
McGuffey's Third Eclectic Reader:
Things to remember:
When you rise in the morning
rememberwho keptyou from dan-
ger during the night. Remember
who watched over you while you
slept, and whose sun shines
around you and gives you the
sweet light of day.
Let God have the thanks of
your heart for His kindness and His
care; and pray for His protection
during the wakeful hours of day.


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Years ago, just before coming to
Clewiston in 1976,.1 had an old
radio given to me that received
police calls. It didn't work, but by
"juggling" parts and making some
tube substitutions, I "resurrected"
it.
It was on my
bench for a test
run and I was --
only half-listen- 'i "'
ing to it. There
came a call '1i ,,
about a stab-
bing at an
address that
rung a bell. I SamuelS.
knew that I had Tonas
known that
address and stopped to think about
the general neighborhood, the
area, trying to locate things I knew
and refresh my memory. Suddenly
it came to me; that was the address
of my high school where I had
attended for four years, where I had
graduated, played basketball,
belonged to a service club, made
friends, won a scholarship to col-
lege, where nearly 20 years before
nobody would have thought about
stabbing anyone.
What had happened? What
caused this violence in a place
where nobody thought about stab-
bing anyone when I walked the
halls there with a sense of security
and safety? Obviously, we have
come to be a much more violent
society. What I have observed
when there is violence is that one of
the parties perceives an injury, a
slight, an insult, an attack and feels
a need to retaliate. In fact, many of
the tragedies I hear about in
schools, colleges, any place where
people gather has to do with the
aggressor somehow feeling that
(s)he is persecuted, being attacked,
forced to defend something.
More often than not, that may
not be true at all; or if it is true, the
reaction grossly outweighs the per-
ceived affront. I see in much vio-
lence a loss of perspective; the
reaction being far more drastic
than the initial reaction that triggers
it. I remember hearing about a
domestic dispute; where the hus-
band assaulted not only his wife,


Remember that God made all
creatures to be happy, and will do
nothing that may prevent their
being so, without good reason for it.
At night, before you go to
sleep, think whether you have
done anything that was wrong dur-
ing the day, and pray to God to for-
give you. If any one has done you
wrong, forgive him in your heart.
STrust in the Lord, and He will
guide you in the way of good men.
The path of the just is as a shining
light that shineth more and more
unto the perfect day.
We must do all the good we
can to all men, for this is well pleas-
ing in the sight of God. He delights
to see His children walk in love, and
do good one to another.
If our land would return to such
education it would do more good
than all the new facilities or a raise
in teacher's pay. Only God can
bless a nation! Isn't it ironic that a
liberal court took an insignificant
statement from a letter written by
Thomas Jefferson to a Minister to
make a separation between Chris-
tianity and the state, when Presi-
dent Jefferson said that every
teacher's desk in America should
have a copy of the Bible and an
Isaac's Watts hymnal. In our past
history, with the Bible as our guide,
rash school shootings and other
social problems never happened.


but his mother-in-law.
I couldn't help but wonder that,
even if the mother-in-law was
involved, wasn't it really a matter to
be resolved between a couple and
not to involve third parties? People
will say things and suddenly there is
a reaction that may, or may not, be
justified. I think we traded our
insults and jibes when I was in high
school, but you usually got back
what you gave. Nobody felt a need
to retaliate as drastically and with as
much violence as seems to be hap-
pening today. The result was that
things didn't escalate, and seemed
to come to quicker resolutions.
There seemed to be less involve-
ment needed on the parts of those
charged with keeping order; an
unwritten rule that characterized
earlier times was to "keep things in
perspective." The recent violence in
our educational institutions, and
there has been much violence,
might be symptomatic of a world
where people (1) perceive them-
selves as being victimized in some
way, when they may not really be or
it may not be as severe as felt, and
(2) there seems to be a felt need to
retaliate with all the intensity that
can be mustered. When we change
our values, work to avoid a "chip-
on-the-shoulder" mentality, work to
teach people to keep things in per-
spective, maybe we will be able to
return to a more peaceful life and
have fewer tragedies in our schools
and across the nation. Paul writes in
Romans (12:9ff) "...be devoted to
one another, honor one another
above yourselves, be joyful in hope,
patient in affliction, fervent in
prayer..." and then comes a real
challenge: "Bless those who perse-
cute you, bless and do not curse."
Regarding vengeance, he admon-
ishes "Do not take revenge my
friends, but leave room for God's
wrath, for it is written 'It is mine to
avenge, Iwillrepay' (Romans 12:19)."
It is tragic enough when the
things that upset people are real;
infinitely more tragic when they are
exaggerated, only perceived or
could have been resolved but
weren't settled before they became
a full-blown disaster. When
angered, we need to stop and think
"Is it worth it?" and if we all do,
maybe one day we can return to'a
quieter, more peaceful world as
God intends.

During times of tragedy

hope seems to be lifted


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Located in Virginia, nestled in
the quaint town of Blacksburg,
are eight colleges and graduate
schools, a program of 60 bache-
lor's degrees, 140 masters and
doctoral programs, 25,000 full-
time students, 100 buildings on
2,600 acres. Virginia Tech a good
place for a son or daughter to start
their lives and
careers.
Tragically,
that view was
transformed
last week by a
misguided
twisted mind.
Thirty-three
lives were cut
tragically John
short. Those Hicks
families who
thought their children's futures
were all before them must now
deal with a truth that no parent
ought to face. There will be no
future, no summers back home,
no tough years making the grade,
no graduation, no falling in love,
no weddings, no grandchildren.
Try as I might, I have yet to
make sense of it. It was needless.
It was senseless. As I think about
this tragedy, I wonder what the
world has been robbed of? What
great people and accomplish-
ments were suddenly erased
from the pages of history? Maybe
an agricultural student who
would develop some new strand
of wheat and potatoes that
would yield more production per
acre. Gone! Perhaps, a mechani-
cal engineer who would design
the first aerial mapping camera
to be used in an airplane map-
ping the surface of the earth.
Gone! Perchance a person who
would take a sewing needle and
adapt it to a two pronged needle
so that a small trace of vaccine
would be trapped between the
two prongs allowing the small-
pox vaccine to be easily adminis-
tered, eradicating the virus from
history. Gone as well.
Actually, these accomplish-


ments, achieved by alumni of Vir-
ginia Tech, have already taken
place. But what if they had been
cut short? Thinking about that, I
wonder what potential influences
and discoveries have been erased
by what happened. We drop our
rock in the pond of this world and
the ripples move out through his-
tory. When a tragedy like this hap-
pens, it's like the pebble has been
snatched out of the water and the
ripples die out the influence is
gone. And that's not even taking
into account the personal toll on
those who knew the victims.
So, what do we do? Let me
answer that in Latin: Ut Prosim. It
means, "That I May Serve." It is
the motto of Virginia Tech.
Professor Liviu Librescu, who
was a survivor of he Holocaust,
was a living example of that
motto. He stood in the doorway
and did not let the shooter in. He
told his students to jump out the
second story window while he
held the gunman back. His stu-
dents made it out alive. He did
not. It is ironic that 60 years later a
survivor of the Holocaust died
protecting U.S. citizens from the
tyranny of a mad man.
"That I may serve." God is
found in us when we intentionally
serve God and serve our neigh-
bor, especially those who have
fallen. We should mourn, yes, but
we should also turn to God, and
then reach out to one another.
We should rebuild our own lives
putting God once again at the
center. Life is fragile. At any
moment walls can collapse upon
us, death is standing at the door.
When these things happen,
God is right here with us. Distress
and agony are no strangers to
God. Jesus suffered. Jesus died a
painful death.
But Jesus was also raised.
Therefore, I have hope even
when the floodwaters of life
engulf me. I have hope even
when crazy people do evil and
crazy things. I have hope even in
the valley of the shadow of death.
I have hope because love is
poured out on me by God and by
my neighbors.

Dredging has changed local area


Editor's note: Thanks to the
Clewiston Museum, we have
new information about the really
early days of Lake Okeechobee
with a document written by Con-
rad Menge in 1947. Mr. Menge
would have been 82 years old
when he wrote this. History
buffs, here you are. This docu-
ment was titled "Early dredging
in the Lake Okeechobee region",
by Conrad Menge, dated Septem-
ber28, 1947.

By MaryAnn Morris
"In about 1880 the Hamilton
Disston Company (also known
as the Atlantic, Gulf Coast and
Okeechobee Land Company)
purchased four million acres of
land located throughout the
southern part of the State of
Florida. The purchase price was
approximately one million dol-
lars. It was the plan of the Dis-
ston Company to reclaim the
marsh lands surrounding Lake
Okeechobee and some of the
lake bottom itself so that this
land could be used for general
farming. In order to reclaim the
land, it was necessary to lower
the level of the lake by about
four feet. All of the dredging car-
ried out during the decade
between 1880 and 1890 was
undertaken with the purpose of
draining the marshes and lower-
ing the water level in Lake Okee-
chobee.
"The first dredge used on the
project was built in 1882 or 1883
by my two brothers, Joseph
Menge and J. Fred Menge. This
dredge was constructed at Cedar
Keys. (Readers may recall that
this dredge was built at Cedar
Key from a previous story. Now
we know by whom.) This
dredge was 20 feet wide, 80 feet
long, and was of the elevator
type, using 24 buckets. The mud
was dumped in a hopper and
from there into a wooden chute
into while was pumped a stream
of water to keep the mud sliding
out on the bank. This dredge
was able to cut an average of
250 lineal feet, 24 feet wide and
6 feet deep in ten hours in soft
muck. This type of dredge was
invented by my father Anton
Menge and was known as the
Menge Patented dredge.
"After the dredge was deliv-
ered to Fort Myers, J. Fred Menge
stayed to take charge of the
dredging operations for the Dis-
ston Company. He took the
dredge to Fort Thompson Falls
under its own power, using a
stern paddle wheel operated by
a chain belt from the main
engine.
"Beginning at Fort Thompson
a few spots were dredged out in
the river from there to Lake Flirt.
A channel was then cut through
Lake Flirt and following the nar-
row stream bed on to the north
end of Bonnet Lake. It was nec-
essary to cut a channel in both
of these lakes since in some
places water was not deep
enough to float the dredge. The
main idea,in this preliminary
dredging was to get the dredge
to the point where it could begin
digging a canal from Bonnet
Lake to Lake Hicpoochee.

This 1915 map that appeared in Mr. Small's written documentation of the Lake Okeechobee
area is dated 1915. Note the names of towns or if they exist or not at this time.

"The first real canal
was the one that con-
nected Bonnet Lake and ..
Lake Hicpoochee. This.
work was begun some-
time in 1884. The canal '
was cut in two widths,
that is, 48 feet wide."

and Lake Hicpoochee. This
work was begun sometime in
1884. The canal was cut in two
widths, that is, 48 feet wide.
"After the cut into Lake
Hicpoochee was completed, the
dredge was moved over to the
east side of the lake and the sec-
ond canal was started which
would connect Lake
Hicpoochee and Lake Okee-
chobee. This second canal
became known as Three-Mile
Canal. A lone cypress tree on the
edge of the canal near Lake
Okeechobee was named the Flat
Top Cypress and soon became
famous as a landmark. It carried
a flag on top of it as a beacon so
that anyone in that region could
easily locate the Three-Mile
Canal. This canal was complet-
ed in late 1884 or early 1885.
"After the Three-Mile Canal
was finished, the dredge was
taken back to Fort Thompson to
cut off some of the short bends
in the river. All of these first
phases of dredging were com-
pleted by the latter part of 1886.
"As it turned out, the canals
from Okeechobee to
Hicpoochee, from Hicpoochee
to Bonnet Lake, and the chan-
nels through Bonnet Lake, Lake
Flirt, and on to the Caloosa-
hatchee Valley did not succeed
in lowering the lake level by four
feet as originally planned. In
fact, there were times during the
rainy season when the direction
of the current in the river
between /fort Thompson and
Hicpoochee was reversed, that
is, the water flowed "backward"
or toward the lake. The Disston
Company then made plans to
dig another canal from the south

The first dredge used by Disston to dredge the Caloosa-
hatchee River was 20 feet wide and 80 feet long. Although no
specifics extis for this photo, the dredge is large enough to
have been a Menge Patented Dredge.


shore of Lake Okeechobee,
beginning at Ritta River which
would drain into the Shark River
Valley. It was believed that this
additional canal would provide
the drainage needed to lower
the lake level.
"I arrived in Fort Myers on
December 8, 1886, the day after
my twenty-first birthday, to go to
work as engineer on the dredge
of which my brother was cap-
tain. I went to Fort Thompson
where the dredge was then
located, having just completed
the job of making some cuts to
take bends out of the river. We
took the dredge immediately to
Coffee Mill Hammock where we
stayed for about a month, mak-
ing extensive repairs of the
machinery and equipment in
preparation for digging the next
canal.


"When the repairs were com-
pleted, we took the dredge into
Lake Hicpoochee and out a
short canal from the southwest
side of the lake back to the pine
timber. This was early in 1887.
The canal, about a mile long,
was called 'Wood Yard Canal.'
Its purpose was to get to the sup-
ply of wood which was used as
fuel on the dredge. Wood was
cut in four foot lengths and
hauled to the end of the canal by
ox team. A man by the name of
Joe Horn contracted with the
Disston Company to supply
wood at three dollars a cord,
delivered to the canal. The wood
contracts were made for 100
cords at a time. When in opera-
tion, the dredge used about a
cord or a cord and a half of fat
pine wood each day."

Coping with drought in Florida


By Gene McAvoy
Horticultural Agent Hendry
County Extension Service
Drought is likely to occur in
every part of Florida at one time
or another. Because of Florida's
sandy soils, plants may experi-
ence drought stress after only a
few days without rain or irriga-
tion.
We are currently in the midst
of one of the most severe
droughts in recent memory. The
South Florida Water Manage-
ment .Districts has already
begun to institute water restric-
tions. The restrictions are
designed to be equitable, but
high priority is given to water
use for human consumption,
agriculture, and industry. Irriga-
tion for commercial and home
landscapes is under phase
II restrictions and indications
are that restrictions could get
even tighter unless significant
rainfall is received over the next
few months. It is unlikely that
this will happen. With these lim-
itations on water, the landscap-
er or homeowner must decide
how best to use the limited
water available for landscape
irrigation.
The following recommenda-
tions are given as suggestions
for management practices dur-
ing drought.
Irrigate highly visible and
intensively managed areas first.
Drought sensitive plants should
have high priority, but turf
should have lower priority.
Although turf is drought sensi-
tive, it is cheaper to replace turf
than to replace trees and
shrubs.


Water early in the morning.
Less water loss occurs from
evaporation and wind drift in
the morning because of cooler
temperatures and less wind.
Irrigate deeply at long inter-
vals rather than frequent, shal-
low watering. Deep watering
improves drought resistance by
promoting deeper, more exten-
sive root systems. Depth of
watering should be six to twelve
inches for turf and bedding
plants, and twelve inches for
perennials, shrubs, and trees.
One inch of irrigation wets a
sandy soil to a depth of about 12
inches.
Examine the irrigation sys-
tem and repair leaks promptly.
Keep weeds under control;
weeds steal water from plants.
Don't fertilize or, if you do,
do so with a low nitrogen fertil-
izer. Fertilization stimulates
growth and increases water
needs.
Avoid unnecessary applica-
tions of pesticides that require
"watering in."
Irrigate turf only after about
30 percent of your lawn starts to
wilt. Signs of wilting include
footprints that remain in the
grass long after being made, a
bluish gray appearance to the
lawn, and a large proportion of
leaf blades that are folded in half
length-wise.
Raise the cutting height of
turf. Although taller grass uses
slightly more water than shorter
grass, a higher cutting height
promotes deeper rooting and
maintains turf quality longer.
Mow less frequently. Mowing
stresses the grass plant by
increasing respiration and

reducing root growth. In addi-
tion, never remove more than
one third the length of the blade
to prevent too much stress on
grass.
Use a sharp blade when
mowing. A sharp mower blade
produces a cleaner cut that
heals more quickly and loses
less water than a cut made by a
dull blade.
Add mulch to beds to reduce
evaporation from soil and to
moderate soil temperature,
reducing stress on roots. Final
depth of your mulch should be
3 to 4 inches after settling.
If possible, don't use over-
head sprinklers for shrub and
flower beds; hand water, flood
irrigate, or use trickle irrigation.
Greater water loss can occur
with overhead irrigation
because of evaporation and
wind drift.
Irrigate trees and shrubs only
after they start to wilt. Drooping
leaves and a change in leaf color
are signs of wilting. Many trees
and shrubs can survive drought
without irrigation, providing
they are well established and
were irrigated prior to the
drought.
Move container plants to
shaded areas so their water
needs will be reduced.
The following recommenda-
tions should be followed when
drought is so severe and water
use is so restricted that land-
scape plant survival is in ques-
tion.
Only irrigate plants when
they start to wilt.
Apply chemical wetting
agents to soil so it will absorb
water uniformly and prevent dry


spots.
For bahia grass lawns, stop
irrigating and allow the grass to
go dormant. Bahia grass will
turn brown, but it recovers well
when irrigation resumes.
Prune plants severely to
reduce leaf area.
Remove weak plants.
Thin dense beds of plants to
reduce competition among
plants.
These precautions may help
you minimize loss or damage of
your valuable landscape plants.
