Two PBSO deputies indicted


Officials reportedly
falsified official
records

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY- A recent case proves
that even law enforcement depu-
ties are not above the law.
'Two deputies, Jason Rosen,
36, and George Walter Darley, 43,
are facing charges of fraud and
official misconduct. Rosen faces


an additional battery charge.
The deputies allegedly falsi-
fied official records in an attempt
to cover up the battery of an Ea-
gle Academy recruit.
The battery charge is a first-
degree misdemeanor charge,
while the two counts of official
misconduct are considered third-
degree felony charges.
The indictment was handed
down by a grand jury on Oct.
26.
The defendants were released
after each posted $6,000 bond
on the charges.


Investigators worked on the
case for several weeks before the
charges were announced.
On March 4, while on duty at
the PBSO Eagle Academy, Dep-
uty Sheriff Rosen was supposed
to be supervising juveniles in the
'C' Dormitory, according to an af-
fidavit prepared by the PBSO.
The statement said that dur-
ing the course of the defendant's
duties, he had contact with a 14-
year-old boy which turned con-
frontational and physical, result-
ing in the victim sustaining minor
abrasions. The victim was picked


At the Pumpkin Patch: Students enjoy event


ININaji Tobias
These two pumpkin faces were painted by' Ann Tyler -- a local artist who painted the
pumpkin on the left and Leigh Woodham -- the Dolly Hand Center theatre manager
painted the pumpkin on the right. A small pumpkin also appears right in between.
Overall, there were about 700 pumpkins on display during the Pumpkin Patch event at
Community United Methodist Church in Belle Glade. The display lasted from Oct. 15
until Oct. 31.


Arkevious Baynes,
a first-grader from
Ms. Lee's class at
Pioneer Park El-
ementary School,
is getting his face
painted by Manny
Lezcano, a Pump-
kin Patch volun-
teer who is part
of the Glades Day
School Honor So-
ciety. Arkevious

kin Patch event

United Methodist
Church on Tues-
day, Oct. 30.


up from the Eagle Academy by
his mother after being medically
cleared by the West County. De-
tention Center's on-duty nurse.
The victim was transported
to a walk-in clinic in Royal Palm
Beach, according to the sheriff's
report.
Investigators later contacted
.the victim and his mother and
scheduled to have the victim
come to the sheriff's office for a
'video recorded interview, the af-
fidavit said.
In that interview, the victim
told investigators that the recruits


wake up early arid have a 'hy-1
giene break.' After the hygiene
break, the recruits return to their
respective bunks and stand at the
position of attention (POA) until
everybody finishes their break,
according to the statement.
The victim admitted that
he was tired and not correctly
standing at the POA and when
the deputy noticed that the vic.
tim was slouching, he walked to
the victim and told him to stand
at the POA correctly for five min-
utes, according to the affidavit.

Orr's sack



preserves win



for Gators


Blue Devils, Raiders
stay unbeaten

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Glades
Day's homecoming game
couldn't have ended any
sweeter.
That's what a game-ending
sack by senior linebacker Wil-
liam Orr did for the Gators as
they defeated the King's Acad-
emy Lions, 19-14.
"The only thing that was go-
ing through my mind was to
make a play for the win against
King's Academy," Orr said.


"We weren't given a chance to
win this game, but I'm glad we
pulled this one out big. Glades
Day ain't no pushover and we
came to prove it to everybody
that doubted us and said we fell
off. We're the same team as last
year, even better."
There was no argument
with that statement as Glades
Day basically owned the fourth
quarter of the game.
Orr's game-ending sack of
Lions senior quarterback Cory
Donath came with 1:04 left in
the game. But there were even
more inspiring plays on the Li-

Man shot once



from behind


Victim is in
stable condition

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE A man
who was spending time with
his friends one night suddenly
was shot from behind.
Raymond Perry, 18, had the
shock of his life when he felt
a gunshot pierce him from be-
hind. He never saw his attacker.


His two friends who were
with him also did not get a
chance to identify the suspect
in the ambush attack.
The incident happened on
Oct. 23, at approximately 9:30
p.m.
According to Paul Miller,
spokesman with the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office,
the suspect is thought to have
shot the victim once in the but-
tocks somewhere near 33 Da-

Two vehicles flip over into canal


One injured
in incident

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY Rakey Gordon, 52,
pulled over on U.S. Highway 27
because he had a flat tire and
called for a tow truck to come
help him.
He waited on the side of the
road.
Minutes later, after a car
clipped his vehicle, a tow truck
would be needed. Instead of a
sirnple tire change, the truck
would need to pull his vehicle
from the canal.


The accident happened on
Oct. 25 at approximately 2:30
p.m., just three miles north of
South Bay.
According to Darient Bea-
vers, a state trooper for the
Florida Highway Patrol, Mr.
Gordon's white van was parked
on the side of U.S Highway 27
while he waited for a tow truck
to come.
But while Mr. Gordon was
waiting, a dually truck driving
by hit his white van from be-
hind.
"The dually truck veered off
the road and clipped the left
rear side of the van and all of
a sudden, both vehicles were
knocked into the canal after the
collision," State Trooper Bea-


vers said.
I Fortunately, Mr. Gordon was
not injured in the incident.
The driver of the dually
truck, 60-year-old James Doug-
las Nixon, also escaped serious
injury.
Mr. Nixon suffered abra-
sions to his left elbow but not
much else.
"Luckily, neither one got
hurt to the point they had to
got to the hospital, so that was
the good thing that came out of
this," the state trooper said.
Palm Beach County Fire
Rescue officials were on hand
to treat Mr. Nixon for his injury
at the scene.

Thursday, November 1, 2007 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Tim Mahoney calls for passage of Children's


WASHINGTON D.C. Con-
gressman Tim Mahoney (FL-16)
recently spoke on the floor of the
U.S. House of Representatives in
support of the Children's Health
Insurance Program Reauthoriza-


tion Act. The House is expected to
vote on the bill later today, which
would give healthcare to 10 mil-
lion needy children through the
Children's Health Insurance Pro-
gram (SCHIP).


The President vetoed a bill to
reauthorize SCHIP in early Oc-
tober. The new bill strengthens
rules to verify citizenship, phase's
childless adults out of the program
a year earlier than the previous


bill; and caps income eligibility
for the program at 300 percent of
the poverty level. In addition, the
bill further minimizes the "crowd-
out" of private insurance.


Everglades clean-up will be additional 6,000 acres


WEST PALM BEACH Ever-
glades' water quality received a
healthy boost as 6,000 additional
acres of land in rural Palm Beach
County were fully converted to
treatment wetlands aimed at
cleaning up water flowing into the
River of Grass. The State has now
converted a total of 52,000 acres
of former farmland into Storm-
water Treatment Areas (STAs).
The shallow, plant-filled marshes
are part of Florida's investment of
$1.8 billion in water quality im-
provements for the Everglades.
Using "green technology," the
STAs naturally cleanse water of
excess nutrients before it flows
overland into the Everglades.
"Because of the state's con-
tinued commitment to Ever-
glades restoration, we are already
achieving environmental results,"
said Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection Secretary
Michael Sole. "Florida is a role
model for other states, a prime


example of the monumental en-
vironmental restoration that can
be achieved with dedicated fund-
ing, effective projects and a vision
for success."
Treatment wetlands are the
workhorse for water quality im-
provements in the South Florida
ecosystem. A decade ago, phos-
phorus concentrations in Ever-
glades-bound waters averaged
170 parts per billion (ppb). To-
day, the STAs are treating water
to phosphorus concentrations
below 50 ppb and in some cases
as low as 12 to 14 ppb, surpass-
ing early predictions for the suc-
cess of using green technology
for water quality improvements.
The State of Florida and the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District constructed the first
five Everglades STAs in operation,
including the world's largest con-
structed wetland at 17,000 acres.
The District completed the 6,000
acres of initial STA expansions at


three sites (STA-2, STA-5 and STA-
6). Another 12,000 acres of STAs
are currently in design as part of
secondary expansions.
"The District is to be com-
mended for timely additions to
the Stormwater Treatment Ar-
eas systems," said Eric Draper,
Deputy Director for Audubon of
Florida. "This newest Stormwater
Treatment Area adds increased
certainty, that with proactive up-
stream water quality Best Man-
agement Practices, clean water
will flow into the Everglades"
Over the last decade, the STAs
- combined with improved agri-
cultural practices have prevent-
ed 2,678 metric tons of phospho-
rus from reaching the Everglades.
During Water Year 2007 (May '06
through April '07), the STAs cap-
tured and treated 900,000 acre-
feet of water, reducing phospho-
rus loads to the famed River of
Grass by 71 percent.
"Accelerating our restoration


projects like the expansion of
constructed wetlands provides
our taxpayers with immediate
environmental, recreation and
economic benefits," said SFWMD
Executive Director Carol Wehle.
"The District remains firmly fo-
cused on further improving the
quality of water flowing into the
Everglades. We are grateful to
Governor Crist and Secretary Sole
for their continued support and
leadership in restoring and pro-,
tecting Florida's River of Grass."
In 1994, the Everglades For-
ever Act mandated and funded
construction of treatment wet-
lands aimed at lowering phos-
phorus levels for water entering
the Everglades. In 2004, Florida
launched Acceler8 an ambi-
tious plan to speed up the fund-
ing, design and construction of
eight key Everglades restoration
projects. Expansion of the Storm-
water Treatment Areas is part of
this accelerated effort.


Mahoney introduces property tax relief legislation


WASHINGTON, D.C. Con-
gressman Tim Mahoney (FL-16)
introduced bipartisan legislation
to cut taxes for Florida hom-
eowners on Thursday, Oct. 26.
The Homeowners' Property Tax
Relief Act of 2007 could save over
976,000 Floridians more than
$2,000 pr year in federal taxes. In
Florida, where property taxes are
higher, savings could be much
greater. The legislation provides
this tax cut by allowing all Flo-
ridians to deduct state and local


property taxes from their federal
income tax return. Currently, tax-
payers who file under the Alterna-
tive Minimum Tax are prohibited
from. taking this deduction.
Mahoney's legislation comes
at a time when Florida home-
owners are being hit hard by the
staggering costs of property taxes
and homeowners insurance.
"The Homeowners' Property
Tax Relief Act would cut taxes for
Florida families struggling under
the high costs of property taxes


and homeowners' insurance. In
the past six year, property taxes
have doubled but family incomes
have not. More and more middle-
income Florida families are bear-
ing a tax burden beyond their
means and are unable to pay
their mortgage. Time is running
out. We must act quickly to pro-
tect the American dream of hom-
eownership," said Congressman
Tim Mahoney.
Although the AMT was origi-
nally intended to affect only the


wealthiest Americans, it is en-
snaring more and more middle
class families. As a result, many
families on tight budgets are
struggling under ar" increasingly
unmanageable tax burden. While
the AMT initially affected fewer
than 20,000 taxpayers, this year,
it is expected to affect 23 mil-
lion Americans, including over
976,000 Floridians. In Florida's
16th Congressional District, over
46,000 taxpayers are expected to
file AMT returns this year.

Letter to the Editor


Dear Glades Citizens,
To be recognized by your com-
munity is the ultimate tribute.
Because of my surprise of being
honored at the chamber meet-
ing Tuesday, I neglected to thank
the many community partners
who are a big part of this award.
I would like to give my personal
thanks to my Gove Elementary
family and the administrative
leadership who provide support
'for our many initiatives.
Next, I would like to thank
Sonja Lutz for the eloquent
speech and Bridget Lutz for her
friendship and for keeping such
a secret.
It would be a daunting task to
name all the people who have
inspired me these 22 years in the
Glades. The students I coached
and taught in the Glades have


been the heart of my inspiration.
In the last seven years, the many
wellness partnerships developed
have been the fuel to my inspira-
tion to obtain grants and develop
projects. Please read the list of
Glades' medical and wellness
partners who supported these
initiatives in the Wellness Week
articles in the Sun Newspaper
(10/18/07) and neighborhood
Post (10/24/07).
Speaking of "news," we are
blessed to have The Sun news-
paper and L.J. Margolis, writer of
the Neighborhood Post, to adver-
tise the positive activities in the
Glades .Without their articles, the
successes of these Community
endeavors could not be heard.
I am most thankful to God
who has blessed me with the
most supportive husband, chil-
dren, school and church family.

Suspect arrested
after admitting to
shooting from vehicle

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE In a span of
a few days, authorities are report-
ing, another late-night shooting
involving people from South Bay
and Belle Glade.
At this time, it is not known if
the shooting was gang-related.
According to Teri Barbra,
the spokeswoman for the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO), the shooting took place
on Saturday, Oct. 27 at approxi-
mately 4 a.m.
At the time police say, Joeta-
vios Cato, 20, was standing out-
side of 419 S.W. Avenue C in Belle
Glade.
Without warning, the victim
was shot in his hand as a gray
Lincoln drove by, according to
the report.
The victim, a Belle Glade resi-
dent, was taken to Glades Gen-


eral Hospital for treatment of his
hand and was later released.
The interesting thing about
this shooting was that deputies
from District Five were actually
in the area at the time, and heard
the shooting. They managed to
spot a vehicle leave the area.
Ms. Barbera said that deputies
conducted a felony stop on the
gray Lincoln, which contained
four subjects. Items found includ-
ed two handguns on the ground
outside of the car where officials
believe the occupants tossed
them prior to the felony stop.
Spent 9mm casings were
found inside the vehicle
The driver of the vehicle, Theo-
dore Green, admitted to deputies
that he tossed the guns out of the
vehicle.
The front passenger of the ve-
hicle, Percy Anderson, a 23-year-
old South Bay man, was charged
with aggravated battery with a
firearm after reportedly admit-
ting to deputies that he was the
shooter.

NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL DIABETES MONTH
Diabetes affects your body from head to toes. This includes your
eyes. The most common and most serious eye complication of dia-
betes is diabetic retinopathy, which may result in poor vision or
even blindness.
"Retinopathy" is the medical term for damage to the tiny blood
vessels (capillaries) that nourish the retina, the tissue at the back of
your eye that captures light and relays information-to your brain.
The high blood s-ugar levels associated with diabetes often affect
these blood vessels.
Nearly half of people with known diabetes have some degree of
diabetic retinopathy. The longer you have diabetes, the more likely
it is you'll develop diabetic retinopathy. Initially, most people with
diabetic retinopathy experience only mild vision problems. But, the
condition can worsen and threaten your vision.
The threat of blindness is scary. But, with early detection and
treatment, the risk of severe vision loss from diabetic retinopathy is
small. At Family Eye Care, we provide dilated eye examinations to
thoroughly assess ocular health to prevent the development of ocu-
lar and medical complications of diabetes. Please call our office at
(863) 675-0761 for more information or to set-up and appoint-
ment.

the scene through her eyes run-

operation is funded through the
Palm Beach County School Dis-
trict as a way of getting struggling
students extra help in academics.
In this its second year, the pro-
gram has enrolled 177 students
-- 158 of them are funded by
Patterson and Stewart, while 18
students are served by Academic
Consulting and Educational Ser-
vices. One student is funded by
The School Coach.
Most of the students gener-
ally see a host of staff members
Tuesday through Thursdays from
3 until 4:30 p.m. It is a welcome
help to raise FCAT scores.


The primary focus for aca-
demic learning, according to Ms.
Vereen, is on reading and math.
Students generally use the Wilson
curriculum, which is built for at-
risk students and is a simplified
educational plan to help students
understand concepts better.
With the after-school program
in place, the elementary school is
preparing the students to be bet-
ter prepared for the FCAT exams,
which will take place in March
2008.
"Our goal for the SES program
is for the students to enhance
their learning and improve their
FCAT scores," Ms. Vereen said.
Each student, Ms. Vereen said,
is tutored for a total of 21 hours.


Since there are many the students
in the program, there are three-
group rotations set up in place
and those groups are generally no
more than six students at a time.
For example, if the group is seen
on a Tuesday, then that same
group may not been seen until
the next week.
The student-teacher ratio in
most cases is 6:1. The program,
which serves students from
grades three to five, began on
Sept. 25 and will continue until
shortly after the winter holiday
break, according to Ms: Vereen.
For more information, please
call Ms. Vereen at 993-8626.

Pioneer Park has a 13-year old angel


How many 13-year-old angels
do you know? Not many, I am
sure. Pioneer Park Elementary
School in Belle Glade has an an-
gel named Ryan Lohr. Ryan is an
eighth grade student at Polo Park
Middle School in Lake Worth who
has been instrumental in collect-
ing clothing, food, and other
items for those students in need
at Pioneer Park Elementary.
Ryan got interested in the
Belle Glade community through
a friend of his parents. They told
him about a family with four
boys whose father was recently
killed. Ryan wanted to help this
family and started to organize a
clothing drive for clothes for the
boys. When Ryan was offered
more than just boys' clothes, he
checked and found there were
many families in need in Belle
Glade. He created a flyer, which
he passed out in the Bahia Bay


neighborhood in the "Isles of
Wellington." Well, friends told
friends and soon he had a garage
full of donations.
After the first delivery of
clothing to Margaret Kendall,
the Speech Pathologist at Pio-
neer Park Elementary School, he
learned of other pressing needs
of that community. Ryan again
put together a flyer, thanking ev-
eryone for the first donation, and
included a list of needs other than
clothing, i.e. food (he listed some
suggestions), bedding, towels,
.pots, pans, cleaning supplies, sil-
verware, etc. Soon the donations
came rolling, in again. Ryan was
surprised at the amount.
"It was amazing to see how
generous people were," he said.
"There were people who went
out and bought food and new toys
and cleaned out all their closets."
Ryan has always been inter-


ested in helping others. Every fall
since he was about four years
old, he "worked" with Mom giv-
ing out fruit, candy and water to
participants at a water stop during
the Jimmy

in Boston.
He loved it
- he would
start bug-
ging me
every sum-
mer, want-
ing to know
how much
longer until the walk. The Jimmy
Fund helps childhood cancer vic-
tims.
When Ryan was seven, 9/11
happened. Seven women from
Mom's company were on the first
plane that crashed into the World
Trade Center. There were seven
children left motherless, and Ryan


insisted on using his own money
to buy teddy bears for them.
Every holiday, Ryan and his
siblings would help Mom choose
tags from an "Angel Tree," where
names of children and their wish
lists were hanging. Ryan loves
shopping for gifts for the kids
and always talks Mom into pur-
chasing "just one more thing" to
make the kids' holidays happier.
Ryan plans to continue to col-
lect items for Belle Glade.
"The people there are hard
working and just can't make
ends meet," says Ryan. "I know
I'm lucky to be able to have a'nice
home and food when I'm hungry.
It feels good to be able to help."
Pioneer Park Elementary
School would like to thank Ryan
Lohr and his family for their hard
work and compassion. It is won-
derful to have an "angel" like
Ryan.

Alico restructures land sale agreements


LaBELLE announced on
bOct. 25, that its wholly owned
'subsidiary, Alico-Agri, Ltd. (the
Company) has restructured one
of its previously announced
agreements with The Ginn De-
velopment Companies (Ginn) for
the sale ofAlico-Agri's property in
.Lee County.
The Company has three sepa-
,tate agreements with Ginn. The
,original contracts were entered
,jnto in 2001 and 2003 for approxi-
.mately 5,609 acres near Florida
'(ulf Coast University. The total
,amounts for each contract are:
'$62.9 million for the first contract
,for which the Company holds
,a note receivable for $54.5 mil-
,'Ion;.$63.5 million for the second
contractt, which is structured as
'a series of option payments; and
*;-12.0 million for the thiid con-
Itract, for which the Company
,holds a note receivable for $11.4
million.
The first contract, for a sale
"which closed in July 2005, was-re-


structured to reduce the amount
of principal due on Sept. 28, from
$12.3 million to $0.4 million; the
amount of principal due on Sept.
28, 2008 from $12.3 million to
approximately $3.5 million; the
amount of principal due on Sept.
28, from $14.1 million to $12.0
million; and the amount of prin-
cipal due on Sept. 28, 2010 from
$15.8 million to $12.0 million.
The restructuring extends the
term one year for a balloon pay-
ment on Sept. 28,2011 of approx-
imately $26.6 million. The note
was also revised to set the interest.
rate retroactively to July, 2005 and
base it on LIBOR plus 1.5 percent.
The future payment of all interest
outstanding will be made on a
quarterly basis for the remaining
term of the note based on LIBOR
plus increasing percentage incre-
ments. The payment terms for
the second and third contracts
remain unchanged.
The Company has received a
Spavmeftnl of $6.4r- l,#i4ri.t~daLed.


to the first contract. This pay-
ment consisted of $0.4 million of
principal, $6.1 million of interest
and the balance as an expense
reimbursement. Additionally, the
Company received payment of
$3.6 million for a one year exten-
sion on the option contract, and a
payment of $0.7 million for inter-
est due on the third contract.
Alico Chairman and CEO John
Alexander stated that he was
pleased that the Ginn contracts
could be restructured in a mutu-
ally acceptable fashion. "Due to
complications in the permitting
process and an overall slowdown
in the real estate market, we are
working with, Ginn to help them
succeed in this project. We con-
tinue to be excited about the ben-
efits that the Ginni communities
will bring to the Ft. Myers area.
We believe that the contractual
modifications are mutually bene-
ficial to Ginn and the Alico share-
holders "


If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.
Thank you for all the love, support and prayers we will miss forever,

Celebrating Discover After School
A group of kids is enjoying their ride on what they call a 'wheel slinger' during Discovery
After-School Day at Pioneer Park in Belle Glade Thursday, Oct. 18.

On Tuesday, October 9, representatives from the Belle Glade Chamber of Commerce, the
City of Belle Glade, the EDGE Center, and Home D6cor business owners Odeh Sa'ad and
Atef All were enjoying the grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony of the.furniture
store, located on South.Main Street in Belle Glade.

On Thursday, Oct. 18 during Discover After-School Day at Pioneer Park in Belle Glade,
children from the Pioneer Park Beacon Center and the Glades Kids Activity Center took
a tour of a fire truck, courtesy of the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue. Lieutenant John
Brown, right, showed the groups the driver operator compartment, which consists of an
array of tools needed for the firefighters to do their jobs effectively. Firefighter Jonathan
Russell, left, is looking on.


Avelardo Alonso, a third-grader from the Pioneer Park Beacon Center, is spraying water
from a booster line held by Firefighter Jonathan Russell. The purpose of the booster line
is to put out small trash fires. This was part of Discover After-School Day at Pioneer Park
in Belle Glade on Thursday, Oct. 18.


A group of
kids are go-
ing up what is
called a 'rock
climber' at
Pioneer Park.
It was one of
many activi-
ties that they
participated
in at Discov-
ery After-
School Day
in Belle Glade
on Thursday,
Oct. 18.

vis Terrace in Belle Glade.
The victim, a South Bay resi-
dent, was transported by his
friends to Glades General Hospi-
tal, according to officials. He was
later taken via Trauma Hawk to
St. Mary's Hospital in West Palm
Beach for further observation and
treatmenL'
SEarlier this week, he was listed
in stable condition, according to


officials.
Given the circumstances of
the crime, police are continuing
to follow all leads in connection
with the case and urge the public
to help.
The sheriff's office encour-
ages anyone who has knowledge
of the shooting to call the Violent
Crimes Task Force at (561) 688-
4000 or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800)

"I thank God everyone is alive,"
Mr. Nixon said.

pulled both vehicles out of the ca-
nal, towing them away.
The two men lost their ve-
hicles but, thankfully, they didn't
lose their lives.
Staff Writer Naji Tobias can be

Deputies
Continued From Page 1
After trying t6 get the POA cor-
rectly several times, the victim
was told to start over standing at
the POA every time he did it incor-
rectly. The victim said he was get-
ting frustrated and disinterested.
As the deputy walked away from
the victim, he sat down on his foot
locker, the statement said.
The deputy reportedly told the
victim he couldn't sit down and
kicked his bunk, turning it upside
down.
He then ordered the victim to
stand up but the victim admitted
to being noncompliant at that
point, the report said.
According t:' the affidavit, the
defendant grabbed onto the vic-
tim's sweatshirt and pulled him to
his feet. The victim went on to say
that the deputN grabbed onto the

ons' final drive such as the sack by
Gators senior Earnest Jackson on
the Lions first down play at their
own 38-yard line.
After Jackson's sack on first
down, it was obvious that the
ending would be like it was.
Of course, none of this would
have been possible without the
Gators clicking on both offense
and defense in the second half of
the game.
Gators senior Cody Davis came
through in the clutch as he scored
the game-winning touchdown, a
6-yard rushing touchdown right
through the heart of the Lions de-
fense with 1:48 left in the game.
Davis also scored earlier in the
final quarter, an 18-yard rushing
touchdown with 8:31 in the fourth
quarter to put the Gators in prime
position for the upset victory. At
that point, the Gators were trailing
14-13.
Davis led all rushers with sev-
en carries for 54 yards and two
touchdowns.,
The Gators made key stops
throughout the fourth quarter, al-
lowing the Lions no first downs
after allowing 10 through three
quarters. Senior Mike Robins re-
covered a King's Academy fum-
ble less than 10 seconds into the
fourth at their 25-yard line.
The fumble recovery was es-
sentially the turning point for
Glades Day, since it seemed as if
the Lions were going to put this
game away after the third quarter
ended.
"Myles Jackson being out in the
second half for King's Academy
hurt them," Gators head coach
Pete Walker said. "We were much
better in the second half. We have
a good football team and beating
King's Academy was big for us."
With the King's Academy all-
purpose player being out in the
second half, it could have played a
big part in the Gators turnaround.
Jackson was out because of his
asthma condition.
In the first half, Jackson was
on a tear, rushing 15 times for 93
yards, including a 4-yard touch-
down in the first quarter to put the
Lions up 7-0. Jackson saw time as
a wide receiver, a quarterback and
the kicker for the first half.
Gators junior quarterback Bo
Schlecter had his best game of the
season, going 11-for-15 with 215
passing yards, including a perfect-
ly thrown 93-yard bomb to senior
wide receiver Anthony Norton in
the second quarter.
Norton finished with nine re-
ceptions for a school-record 202
receiving yards for the game.
"Norton and Schlecter con-
nected a big pass plays and the
offensive line stepped up big,"
Coach Walker said. "Bo had his


victim's arm, swung him around
and threw him onto the tile floor.
The action was caught on sur-
veillance video and shows the
deputy dragging the victim across
the floor.
The defendant then helped the
victim to his feet and ordered him
to stand at the POA, the statement
said.
After the victim was standing
correctly yet again, he was es-
corted out of the barracks by the
defendant -- the victim thought
the defendant was prodding him
into making an aggressive move-
ment to enable the defendant to
become more physical with him,
according to the statement.
As the victim was walking
away from the defendant, the
defendant grabbed the victin-'s
swveatshirt and again three hirn to
the ground :utlside the barracks
That \vas 'obsert. \d tL' other re-
crulls tronm inside the barracks,


the report said.
Detectives interviewed 15
Eagle Academy recruits and four
other certified officers of the Eagle
Academy, who generally agreed
to the violent actions by the de-
fendant.
Teri Barbera, the spokeswom-
an for the sheriff's office, said that
the deputies actions do not reflect
the overall mentality at the sher-
iff's office. She hoped to reassure
the community .about the Eagle
Academy as. an at-risk program
for teens.
"The Eagle Academy is a suc-
cessful program and we hope
that the community still realizes
it," Ms. Barbera said. "We want
the parents to still believe in the
program "
No) court date has been set.at
this time, according to the state
alt:,rne\''s office

Glades Day Gators' junior Brent Dixon, wearing 77 and senior
Earnest Jackson, wearing 5 lead the team in celebrating their
homecoming game victory over the King's Academy Lions,
19-14. The game was played at Gator Field on Friday, Oct. 26.


most impressive game so far and
Cody was the hot hand tonight."
Glades Day, who is now 6-2
and has already won the District
6-1A title, will go to Moore Haven
tomorrow and try to finish their
district at 3-0. It should be an easy
win for them.
Pahokee 47, Cardinal New-
man 0: The Blue Devils stay
unbeaten thanks to two rushing
touchdowns from senior Janoris
Jenkins, two passing touchdowns
from senior quarterback Anthony
Sheppard, a punt return for a
touchdown by senior Martavious
Odoms, and one rushing touch-
down each from Tyrone Hill and
Vincent Smith.
The .Blue Devils offense fin-
ished with 333 total yards while its
defense held Cardinal Newman
to only 54 total yards 105 total
yards in the last two games.
Pahbkee, who is 8-0 and 3-0 in
District 7-2B, plays their final regu-
lar season home game tomorrow
night against Vero Beach, a very
good team out of Class 6A. This
will be the Blue Devils' last game
against a Class 6A team this sea-
son. They will have played four 6A
teams this season.


Glades Central 13, Pem-
broke Pines Charter 12: In
a muddy slugfest at Pembroke
Pines, a hidden gem was discov-
ered in the game.
It was James Melton, a junior
running back and Clewiston trans-
fer, who made the difference in
the one-point win. Melton scored
his first Raiders touchdown on
a 3-yard touchdown run in the
fourth quarter to put Glades Cen-
tral up 13-6.
As Glades Central is known
for being a fourth-quarter team,
juniors Hygens Success and Ar-
tavious Dowdell preserved the
win after making a big stop on
a potential game-winning upset
two-point conversion attempt by
the Jaguars. Pines cut the lead to
13-12 late in the fourth before the
two made that game-ending de-
fensive play. .
The other Raiders score came
from junior Rantavious Wooten
on an 80-yard rushing touchdown
in the first quarter.
The Raiders, 8-0 and 3-0 in Dis-
trict 15-3A, will go for the district
sweep when they go to Suncoast
tomorrow.

Youth 'problems'


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Our children and young peo-
ple are growing up in a prob-
lem-oriented society. They hear
more about problems in a week
than we used to hear about in
several months. They are filled
in on all the problems besetting
the society into which they were
born.
At school they have classes
and discussions on problems.
The talk shows on the radio
abound with problems and peo-
ple's ideas of solutions to them.
They can read "Dear Abby" and
find out about people's prob-
lems. Many of them group with
the idea that they aren't wanted,
that they have been nothing but
trouble to their parents, and that
we already have too many peo-
ple. Wherever they turn (home,
school, business, world) there
are problems.
And, of course, if we have
problems (and surely we will be-
cause everybody else does), we
must have counselors at schools
to handle our problems.
Let me take you back a few
years to the 20's and 30's. Yes,
there were problems in our
world then, too the "crash" of
the Wall Street stock market, the
closing of banks, the Depression,
the drought years, etc. In cities
people walked the streets out
of work and stood in soup-lines
to get a little bit of something to
eat. Farmers lost their farms and
people their homes. Businesses
went under. But you did not
find ulcers among youngsters
over it. You did not find nervous
break-downs among youth.
There was no talking "trips" on
dope or letting our hair grow to
protest the mess the adults had
gotten us into. Nor did we need
counselors at school to help us
cope with our problems. Do you
know why? We were allowed to
be children and young people
(to play, to go to school, to enjoy
ourselves), and the school and
the home didn't bother us with
the magnitude of the problems
going on.
Suppose they had worried us


with the economic picture, had
had us discuss the solution to
the Depression. What could we
have done about it? What would
we have done but worry about
it?
Suppose they had told us
back there that we shouldn't
have to walk to school or ride
a horse to school but that we
should be hauled to school.
Suppose we had been told we
shouldn't have to bring a cold
lunch in a lunch bucket or sack
to school but that the school
should be serving us hot lunch-
es. Suppose that we who lived
on farms, or in small towns had
been told that youngsters in city
schools had a lot of advantages
that we didn't have. What could
we have done about it?
Well, if we couldn't have
done anything about these
things and a hundred other such
things, wasn't it wonderful that
we didn't know the problem
existed? We would have but
burdened ourselves with the
problems of the world at an age
we should have been free from
them.
Someone may suggest that
young people today have more
problems. Possibly so, but for
the most part it is, "our" fault
and not primarily theirs. "Our"
divorces have broken many of
their lives. "We" have shoved
"sex" at them at a terribly young
age. "We" have allowed them
to have their own cars at a very
young age (and wrecks and end-
less expenditures of money and
high insurance rates), and these
worries we never knew years
ago. No wonder they want to
get married younger, get away
from home when it was not
so true years ago, want to vote
at a younger age, etc., etc. No
wonder they want to "march"
and "protest" and want to tell
the government how it ought
to handle everything. No won-
der we have so: many youthful
criminals when criminals used
to be a few men somewhere in
their 40's.
But have we made them bet-
ter because of all the above?

versation took Hicks
a much deeper
direction. We started discussing
forks, knives, and spoons. If you
were asked, would you classify
yourself as? Would you say you


were a fork, a knife, or a spoon?
I remember someone at school
reaching to snatch something off
of the food tray of my brother. He
stabbed their hand with his fork.
Ouch! When fork people are in-
volved, there is usually snatching
and stabbing involved.
We all probably have had some
experience with fork people. Fork
people tend to worry about what
is on their own plates. These are
the people who have a "stab it
and grab it" attitude. They are the
ones who never seem to have
enough on their own plate to sat-
isfy themselves and tend to reach
out and stab up anything they can
sink their tines into, many times
without asking.
And then there are the knife
people. No matter what is placed
before knife people, it is never


quite right. They try to figure out
how they can carve it up into a
new shape that suites them or
makes them more comfortable.
The sharp blade of the knife goes
to work, slicing off anything they
find offensive or questionable.
Knife people often tend to use
cutting remarks and often times
cut other people down.
If I had a choice, I'd be a
spoon. Spoons are distinctly dif-
ferent, because instead of taking
or cutting, spoons are designed
to serve. Because their shape is
less specialized, spoons are more
adaptable. You can eat. steak,
spaghetti, or soup if you have a
spoon. If necessary, spoons can
even do some cutting.
I have noticed that a silver-
ware service for four includes
four knives, four dinner forks,


four salad forks, but eight spoons.
That's because the utensil manu-
factures know that spoons get
used for more things and in more
ways than do knives and forks.
A spoon offers sustenance
to others. Spoons exist for one
purpose only: to serve and save.
Spoon people are adaptable.
They can operate in a variety of
venues. Whether it's hot soup
or freezing ice cream, they can
scoop it up. Spoon people serve
others, but they are also good at
stirring things up when neces-
sary. Spoons are a great image of
a Christian lifestyle, a ministry in
motion.
Spoons have only one pur-
pose: They are designed to serve.
In a world of knives and forks --
be a spoon.


All Saint's Day and the people under God


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Thursday, Nov. 1, is traditional-
ly All Saint's Day. Our spiritual an-
cestors remembered those who
were the heroes of the faith and
were grateful for the examples
they gave us. When there was
some known time of their birth
or death, the day was commemo-
rated on their yearly calendars
and special intentions were given
for those who were models for us
all. As time went on, many people
were added to the calendar. As
the end of the year approached;
a day was set aside to remember
all of God's saints All Saint's Day.
Some came from the pages of
the Bible, others were celebrated
for the things they did after the
Biblical era. The reason they're
worth remembering is that they
gave their lives for others, stood
up against injustice, helped the
needy, did what they were called
to do.
I think they're worth remem-
bering and each time their day
comes up on the calendar, they're
included in our worship services.
A part of our problems today is
that we seem to have lost a sense

SThere are those special ones
who are witnesses and examples;
known to us and others unknown.
It is good to remember them and
still look to what they did as ex-

our behavior and the lights in

examples in our generation when
I read the paper or see television.

als on which we are founded;
those saints looked to God and

He was the ultimate source of
their inspiration and guidance.
There is something curious about
those who would limit God as
our inspiration still; and who
might wish to remove the words
"under God" from our Pledge of
Allegiance. I wonder just whose
guidance we might be under if it's
not, "under God." Who might be
a better example, a better model?
Should we say, "one nation un-
der Bush," or "one nation under
Congress," or "one nation under
the Supreme Court," or just who
or what? Should we change who
we aie "under" every four years;
that would be a bit inconsistent
and seem to deny any ultimate
authority or values. I don't think
it is better that we're under "no-
body" but can't come up with a
better alternative than to be "un-
der God."
We still need someone to serve
as our examples, our guides, our
models; and every now and again
when I hear those in high places
mention prayers or looking to
God, I think we did a good thing
when we added those words to
our Pledge.

church and its supporters are help-

for recycling you may call the par-

country as our heroes who gave
us examples and models; and
who counted on their religious
values to guide them through.
They were "under God" if we read
of their lives and beliefs. Likewise
Churches remember those Who
were their spiritual "forefathers"
and who were definitely "under
God" in their generations. I've
heard of those who wart to re-
move ".under God" from our
Pledge but I haven't heard of a
good substitute to replace Him.
In fact, I don't think any answer
will come quickly, if at all;
In the meantime, I'd suggest
leaving well enough alone. We
remember our great Presidents,
we remember our Church Saints;
those who have done worthy
things, who have looked to God,
and who are our heroes and ex-
amples still. We remember God
as well; He was the inspiration
for all of those others who lived
"under God."
It is fitting for us to thank Him
and remember His special people
as we think about our allegiance.
All Saint's Day-Nov. 1, remember-
ing the people under God; Our
nation valiant leaders under
God, too.

Clewston Tiers' comeback clinches its districttitle
Clewiston Tigers' comeback clinches its district title


By Jeff Barwick
Special to Clewiston News
It was a comeback win that
Tiger fans could ever remember
for comparison purposes. Playing
dismally throughout the first half,
Clewiston had spotted the Inlet
Grove Hurricanes to a 20-0 lead
and appeared to be just going
through the motions and wait-
ing to catch the bus home. The
game began at 4 p.m. due to no
field lights at Inlet Grove and the
Tiger faithful could recall that the
Tigers had always had problems
with afternoon games.
But, something happened
during intermission and the Ti-
gers who showed up to finish
the game were markedly differ-
ent than those that played the
first half. The winning drive was
set up by P.J. Runkles recovery
of Will Davis' onside kick, after
point man Adam Trevino cleared
out the'Inlet Grove player trying
to field the short kickoff. Tailback
Colin Ricketts then blew through
the line and raced 41 yards to give
the Tigers a first and goal at the
7. The Tigers finally took the lead
with 2:35 remaining in the game
when senior fullback Alex'Rubio
pounded in from a yard out. The
win moved the Tigers to 3-0 in the
district and gave them their third
straight district championship.
For a game that ended so
beautifully, it started very ugly.
The Hurricanes scored on their
first two possessions and Clewis-
ton seemed unable to slow them
down. But, some quick defensive
adjustments stopped the bleeding
and Inlet Grove didn't score again
until late in the half. Nevertheless,
neither the Tigers nor their fans
were too optimistic as the teams
went in for halftime.
The Tiger defensive front be-
gan immediately putting strong
pass rushing pressure .on Hur-
ricane quarterback Terry Brad-
den, one of the top-rated pass-
ers in the area. He was thrown
for huge sack losses-three by
Delvin Hughes, one by Deangelo
Huston and another by Antonio
Williams. The defensive play kept
the Tiger offense on the field and
the strategy paid off. Clewiston
put together a 13 play drive that
ate almost seven minutes from
the clock. The rushing yards were
hard earned with Rubio getting
the longest gain with an 11 yard
burst. Key to the drive was two
timely fourth down pass comple-
tions by quarterback Isandro
Marquez. The first was a 14 yard
catch by wideout Paul Peterson
that moved the ball to the Hur-
ricane's 27. Then on fourth and
goal from the 13, Marquez faded
back, slipped to his left to avoid
rushers and fired a strike into the
corner of the end zone where an
outstretched P. J. Runkles caught
the ball.
The final period could not
have been executed much better
by the Tigers. Clewiston scored
early in the period after a short
Hurricane punt had given them
the ball at the Inlet Grove 25.
Marquez hit Petersen with a 16-
yard strike, Rubio hit the line for


"We came back in the
second half a different
team. Our offensive line
started blocking and
opening holes for us.
It feels great to win the
district, especially in a
comeback win."
Colin Ricketts
6 and then Colin Ricketts carried
twice to get the final yards for the
touchdown. Will Davis' conver-
sion brought the Tigers to a 20-14
deficit.
The Hurricanes then mustered
their only drive of the second
half, getting to the Tiger 5 before
having to settle for a 24 yard field
goal. The Tigers came roaring
right back. Ricketts gained all the
yards on a six play, 80-yard drive.
with a 62-yard dash being the big-
gest chunk. He got the score on a
five-yard plunge. The Tigers then
tried a trick play from placekick
formation but the snap was mis-
handled and the play stopped.
Clewiston then 'pulled off
the textbook onside kick with
Runkles recovering at the Hur-
ricane 48. From there, Ricketts
and Rubio did the running duty to
win the game for the Tigers. The
Hurricanes had one last stab at a
comeback but it ended quickly
with cornerback Peterson inter-
cepting a Bradden pass and the
Tigers ran out the clock.
Clewiston held Inlet Grove to
a negative 18 yards rushing in the
second half and thwarted their
potent passing game. Rubio,
from his linebacker position, led
the effort with 10 tackles. Senior
defensive end Delvin Hughes had
8 tackles and three quarterback
sacks and a running sack for loss-
es totaling 44 yards.
Ricketts, exhausted after the
game from having gone both
ways all night, said, "We came
back in the second half a different
team. Our offensive line started
blocking and.opening holes for
us. It feels great to win the district,
Especially in a comeback win."
Tiger Coach Larry Antonacci
said, "Running the ball is our
game and we came out after the
break and did just that. Our staff
is so proud of the effort these kids
made tonight, playing with a lot
of heart and coming back as they
did." After an emotional pause, he
added, "Ricketts and Rubio were
our team leaders. Even being be-
hind 20-0, they wouldn't quit and
kept their teammates going."
After a 0-5 start to their sea-
son against a tough non-district
schedule, the victory was the Ti-
gers third straight district win and
assures them home field advan-
tage in the first round. While the
Tigers will host St. Andrews this
Friday in their final district game,
they would still be champions
no matter the outcome based on
having already beaten Inlet Grove.
The Hurricanes dropped to 3-1 in
the district arid 6-2 overall but se-
cured the district runner-up spot
for postseason play.

Setting goals for lifestyle changes


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Hendry/Glades Health Dept.
We all set goals for things we want
to accomplish, but how often do we
meet our goals when they are about
eating better and being more physi-
cally active? When you are planning
for your goal, think about four things:
1. How long will you try to reach this
goal? Keep it short. 2. Is it easy to do
in your regular daily life? Keep it re-
alistic.
3. Is it limited in scope? Be specif-
ic. 4. How often will you do it?
Keep your goals realistic. Don't try
to do too much too quickly. Here are
three examples of realistic goals.
Eating: For the next month (how
long), four days each week (how
often) I will eat two pieces of fruit a
day -- one at breakfast and one as an
afternoon snack. (realistic and spe-
cific).
Eating: The next five times (how
long) I go to a fast food restaurant
(how often), I will order a small
French fries and a single hamburger,
rather than a large French fries and


double hamburger (realistic and spe-
cific).
Physically active: For the next
month (how long), four days each
week (how often) I will take a 15
minute walk after lunch (realistic and
specific).
Pay attention to the idea that the
eating goals are not "I will eat more
fruit" or "I will eat healthier." The
activity goal is not "I'll walk more."
These goals aren't specific like the
examples above and are very hard to
measure much less to accomplish.
Start with 1 to 3 goals at a time.
Write them down. Put them in a
place where you will see them often
-- on the refrigerator, your bathroom
or bedroom mirror, or in your purse
or wallet.
The next question will be did you
succeed? How did you do at mak-
ing the change? Once the time you
set is over, look at the goals you set.
Ask yourself these questions: Did you
succeed? Did you set your sights too
high? Did something happen in your
life to keep you from being success-


ful? If you were successful, give your-
self a big pat on the back or maybe a
reward like a trip to the movies.
Wait, you are not done! Making
a change for two weeks or a month
does not mean that it will stick for life.
It's so easy to slip back to old ways.
Practice the new habits faithfully. It
will take months before they become
your way of life. If you weren't suc-
cessful, try again. Revise your goals
or choose easier ones. ,Make sure
they contain the four parts of setting
a goal that's within reach. Make sure
you want to make changes in this
area and that you are ready, willing
and able to meet your goals. What
next? Start the lifestyle change cycle
again. Choose some new goals to
work on. Slowly, goal by goal, over
time you'll be eating healthier and
being more active and you'll be at
a healthier weight. You'll also be on
your road to preventing or delaying
type 2 Diabetes, hypertension, heart
disease and some types of cancer
just to name a few more benefits of a
healthy lifestyle.


Pumpkins are loaded with nutrition


Bright orange pumpkins may be
one of the symbols of Halloween,
but pumpkins are much more than
a holiday decoration. Pumpkins are
high in beta-carotene, shown by their
bright orange flesh.

considered a custard pie made with
eggs and milk it should be kept hot
or cold. Don't leave the pie out on the
table or the counter. After it cools,
keep it in the refrigerator.

Crimes Brilees (krehm broo-
LAY) is rich French cream and vanilla
flavored custard. The literal transla-
tion is "burnt cream," which refers

to the scalded cream or milk in the
recipe. Traditionally the entire sur-
face is sprinkled with granulated
sugar just before serving. The custard
is then placed under heat so that the
sugar quickly caramelizes and be-
comes brittle. Although this step can
be omitted, the brittle sugar creates
a delicious flavor and texture con-
trast to the smooth, creamy custard
beneath. This recipe is the American
version of Cremes Brfilles, which
uses pumpkin as the flavor base. It is
very easy to make. Enjoy.
3 cups milk
1 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, canned,
frozen or freshly prepared -
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
5 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tablespoon unsalted butter or
margarine, melted
1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar, divided
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a small saucepan, heat milk
to just below boiling, bubbles will
form all over the surface (scalded
milk is heated to 180 to 1850F).
3. In a medium bowl, lightly beat
eggs with a wire whisk. Add pump-
kin, brown sugar, butter, spice, and
vanilla. Mix until well blended.
4. Gradually whisk in hot milk.
Mix well until all ingredients are com-
bined.
5. Evenly divide pumpkin mixture
among 12 six-ounce custard cups.
Place cups in two 9x13 inch baking
pans. Place pans on oven rack and
add hot tap water to the pans until the
water is halfway up sides of cups.
6. Bake 35-40 minutes. Check after
35 minutes. Custard centers should
be slightly wobbly. Remove custard
from oven and allow to cool in wa-
ter bath. Cover with plastic wrap and
refrigerate.
7. Just before serving, preheat
oven broiler. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons
sugar on each custard. Arrange on
a baking sheet and place under hot
broiler. Broil until sugar melts and
-bubbles. Watch closely to prevent
burning. Sugar should be lightly
brown and caramelized. Or hold a
propane kitchen torch (also called
a salamander) about 2-inches from
custard tops to caramelize sugar.
Serve at once. Refrigerate leftovers
for up to 5 days.
