Arrest made in officers deaths


PBSO offers
$25,000 reward
for second suspect

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE One of the two
suspects sought in connection
to the two slain Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office deputies
was captured by investigators on
Wednesday, Nov. 28.
Police said that 19-year-old
Ernie Kirk Daley, Jr. was the in-
dividual who drove a stolen 1990


gold Toyota Camry in the unfor-
gettable and frantic early-morn-
ing-hours ,chase
on State Road
The suspect
was charged
with two counts
of aggravated
manslaughter
of a law en-
forcement offi- Ee
cer, two counts Erne rk
of manslaugh- Daley
ter by culpable negligence, one
count of grand theft auto and
one count of fleeing and eluding,


causing death.
All of the charges are consid-
ered traffic felonies.,
Authorities said that the sus-
pect was operating the vehicle
with a suspended license; he
received his license on May 9,
2006 and was an inexperienced
driver.
When the suspect reportedly
stole the Toyota Camry, he used
a screw driver to break the igni-
tion switch and utilized it to start
the vehicle.
While being interviewed by
the sheriff's office at the Belle
Glade Substation, the suspect


stated that after deputies tried to
stop him, he accelerated to 85
miles per hour, according to the
affidavit.
The suspect continued with
the interview, saying that he saw
the collision occur in the rear-
view mirror and knew he ran
over the 'spike strips'.
The suspect told investigators
that he felt the effects of the tire
deflation devices on the steering
and handling of the vehicle.
Upon conclusion of the inter-
view, the affidavit showed that
while talking about fleeing the
police, the suspect was noncha-


lant about the incident.
"It's every man for himself,"
the suspect told investigators
during the interview.
After the interview, Investiga-
tor Troy Snelgrove determined
that the information was suffi-
cient enough evidence to charge
the suspect in the incident,
which resulted in the deaths of
deputies Jonathan Wallace and
Donta Manuel.
The suspect's trial date is ten-
tatively scheduled for Dec. 28.
Currently, the sheriff's office

WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY -- An educated con-

It is a saying that Henri-

The theme of World AIDS

-- which is World AIDS Day -
- and will last through tomor-
row, is entitled 'Take the Lead,

according to Ms. Johnson.
Ms. Johnson added that
the purpose of Wordld AIDS

Five candidates vie

By Naji Tobias

PAHOKEE -- Currently,
there are only four commis-
sioners who serve the city of
Pahokee.
Normally, there are five
commissioners serving, but
a departure earlier this year


now requires the rest of the
board to fill the spot.
Former Pahokee City Com-
missioner Gary McEntire left
his position in August when
he moved to Georgia.
During a recent commis-
sion. meeting, Pahokee City
Clerk Raquel Diaz announced
the five candidates who have
shown an interest in becom-
ing a commissioner.

PAHOKEE -- It was a mostly
somber vigil ceremony at Pa-
hokee High School on Tues-
day night.
The families of Deputy
Sheriffs Donta J. Manuel and
Jonathan D. Wallace were in
attendance.
There were many Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
deputy cars and motorcycles
that arrived at the function.
The PBSO Honor Guard were
there to salute the efforts of
the two deputies..
Hundreds, if not thousands,
of citizens from the commu-
nity came to show their love
and support for the families of
the slain deputies.
The Palm Beach County
Fire Rescue, the West Palm
Beach Fire Rescue, the Prince
Hall Grand Lodge AF and AM


Jurisdiction of Florida Ma-
sonic and Eastern Star groups
were also present.
In the closed casket cer-
emony, the WPB Fire Rescue
presented large, framed pic-
tures of the two deputies to
each of their families.
Then, immediately after
the presentation and every 15
minutes during the ceremony,
the Horor Guard had a chang-
ing of the guard it is meant
to show that the honor guard
is there to protect their fallen
heroes.
Every presentation at the
event, from the choir selec-
tions to the various speeches
to the words of encourage-
ment, was done in a very
moving and meaningful way.
Some presentations really
stood out, notably the proc-
lamations by the mayors of
Pahokee, South Bay and Belle
Glade -- J.P. Sasser, Clarence


Anthony and Donald Garrett.
The Pahokee mayor an-
nounced to the audience that
the city sponsored the depu-
ties to join the police academy
-- the deputies were with the
City of Pahokee police at the
time. He later told everyone
that the city plans to make
scholarships in the deputies'
honor in the future for aspir-
ing law enforcement officers
to join the police force..
Then, as Mayor J.P. Sasser
was getting ready to finish his
proclamation, he tried very
hard to fight back tears, but
couldn't.
"I would like to take the
opportunity to say I've never
been more proud of our city,"
Mayor Sasser said.
Mayor Anthony asked the
audience to give a hand clap
and the people gave a stand-

Naples puts an end to


Glades Central's season


Pahokee advances
to state title game

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
NAPLES -- Two words
could basically sum up how
the Glades Central Raiders
wound up losing the Class 3A-
4 regional finals to the Naples
Golden Eagles: Missed oppor-
tunities.
In the Raiders 27-24 loss to
the Golden Eagles, there were


a slew of dropped passes by
wide receivers, missed tack-
les by the defense and some
linemen not blocking for their
running backs at times.
The biggest question,
however, is why junior quar-
terback Kentavious McCoy
wasn't inserted into the game
until the fourth quarter -- after
the Raiders were down 17-10
with 10:08 left in the game.
Here is Raiders head coach
Willie Snead's reasoning for
the decision.
"This was a big game for


us, so we just wanted the
seniors to give us a victory,"
Coach Snead said after being
asked about his game plan.
Coach Snead might want
to use McCoy a lot more at
quarterback next season.
When McCoy filled in for
senior all-purpose player De-
andre Holley, the junior quar-
terback engineered an 8-play,
80-yard drive that was capped
by a 7-yard rushing touch-
down from junior running

In the closing seconds of Glades Central's 27-24 season-end-
ing loss to the Naples Golden Eagles, Raiders junior lineman
James Rainey puts his head down as he is unable to watch
Naples close out the game after a failed onside kick by the
Raiders with 1:18 left in the fourth quarter.


A Moving Tribute: Vigil Ceremony


INI/Naji Tobias
After the completion of the candlelight vigil at Pahokee High School on Tuesday, Dec. 4,
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputies, with the help of a Florida Highway Patrol
state trooper, led the recessional as they take the closed casket to the hearse. It was a
very moving, touching and memorable tribute, indeed.

Holidays are an excellent time for comfort foods


The holiday season often
means bringing out traditional
recipes and passing them on to
the next generation. Some people
may try to alter the recipes to a
more "healthy" version. While I
try to cook healthy and eat healthy
most of the year, when it comes
to traditional Christmas cook-
ies, I want the real thing. I want
teal butter in my sugar cookies
and real chocolate in my fantasy
fudge. And I put 13 eggs in my
lebkuchen (German gingerbread)
because that's what my grand-
mother's recipe calls for.
It has been my experience that
if I use the traditional "real" ingre-
dients, then the occasional not-
so-healthy treat is more satisfying.
As the saying goes "all things in
moderation, even moderation."
There's another reason I like to
use the traditional ingredients at
least I know what they are. Years
ago, margarine was touted as so
much healthier than real butter.
Then we found out margarine
included transfats not healthy
at all. I just don't trust foods that
have been chemically altered in
an attempt to make them "health-
ier." So many foods that started
out as being advertised as "health-
ier" turned out to be anything but.
Saccharine, cyclamates and trans-
fats were all originally marketed
as being "better" for you than real
sugar and fats.
Too much of anything can be
bad for you. So if you indulge in
some holiday treats, take it easy.
Take your time and really enjoy
what you are eating.

temptations are everywhere to eat

getting rid of holiday weight. Real-
istically this is not a good time of
the year to work on losing weight
but what about making your goal
not to gain any weight?
Believe it or not there really
aren't that many people who can
eat all they want and never gain
weight. Most people who are at
a healthy weight watch their por-

Don't panic if you overeat at a
meal. If you eat too much, the
next meal just get back on track
with healthy portions. Don't feel
guilty or think, 'well, I messed
up a little here, so I might as well
mess up royally the rest of the
day.' Don't let it be the trigger to
start on a negative course. It's the
holiday season and we are all go-

Drought predicted to worsen still


By Pete Gawda
INI FLorida
The water shortage is bad and
it is predicted to get worse.
That is the message Carol We-
hle; executive director of South
Florida'Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) gave Friday Nov.
30 to the County Coalition for
Responsible Management of Lake
Okeechobee, St. Lucie and Ca-
loosahatchee Estuaries and Lake
Worth Lagoon.
Ms. Wehle was asked to give
an agency update to the collation,
which is made up of commis-
sioners representing counties sur-
rounding the lake.
"How can I not. talk about the
drought?" she asked.
Florida is not the only state suf-
fering. Ms. Wehle gave an update
on the drought situation around
the southeast. Closer to home,
the director gave a history of the
recent water shortages and water
conservation methods in south
Florida and predicted more of the
same for immediate future.
Ms. Wehle gave a chronologi-
cal, month by month, account of
the current drought and its im-
pact on SFWMD operations. As
the drought proceeded more and
more drastic conservation efforts
were instituted.
The district instituted over 20
drought management teams, such
as a fish kill team. When canals


dry up, fish die. This team handles
problems connected with those
fish kills. Another team deals with
stormwater treatment areas.
"Nurseries get a double wham-
my," Ms. Wehle said. They have
less water to use and the sale of
landscaping plants declines.
In April of this year, for the first
time SFMWD stopped withdrawal
from the water conservation dis-
tricts.
There was some go6d news as
lake levels continued to drop. The
low lake levels allowed SFWMD
to plan for muck removal from
the lake bottom.
As the drought progressed, the
district allowed temporary wells
to be drilled or deepening of wa-
ter holes for cattle operations. Ms,
Wehle said that calves were sold
early, resulting in lower prices.
The district began to work with
local governments on water re-
strictions and enforcement -
In May the lake drooped to
8.89 feet.
"That was heartbreaking," she
said.
As drought progressed, water
use restrictions increased.
On July 2, the lake dropped to
an all time low of 8.82 feet.
Ms. Wehle discussed the dan-
ger of saltwater intrusion causing
several east coast wells to be at
risk.
In anticipation of deteriorating
conditions, Okeechobee Utility


Authority modified their lake wa-
ter. intake so that now the utility
can now draw from a lake level as
low as 3.5 feet.
In June all basins around the
lake went to 45 percent cutback.
for agricultural use and the muck
removal began. Around the lake 2
million cubic yard of muck were
removed containing 140 tons of
phosphorous.
"This was one of that lemon-
ade out .of lemons project," Ms.
Wehle said.
Torpedo grass and navigation
hazards were also able to be re-
moved due to the extremely low
water level.
By August 11,000 warning
notices and 12,000 citations had
been issued and $400,000 had
been collected civil penalties for
violations of water restrictions.
-In anticipation of drier weather
ahead, SFWMD has already asked
the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers
for a continued deviation from the
lake regulation schedule. .
The average year to date rain-
fall district wide January through
November is 52 inches. The cur-
rent total rainfall January through
December district wide 41.52
inches.
This year's Atlantic storms
brought no rain to south Florida.
Since some time in May Ms.
Wehle said there have been 177
consecutive days of. setting all
time low records for particular


days of the year. She predicted
that number that would be a lot
larger when we come out of this
drought. Using a graph she dem-
onstrated that each day the gap
between the previous record low
for a particular day of the year day
and the level for the correspond-
ing day for this year was getting
larger.
The executive director quoted
some predictions that by next
June the lake will be down to
seven feet.
"We have begun planning for
.the drought of 2008," she added.
On the brighter side, SFWMD is
planning for more muck removal,
treatment of exotic vegetation and
replanting native vegetation.
"We will be aggressive in
water conservation" Ms. Wehle
pledged. "We can look forward to
increased water restrictions."
She said the district is consider-
ing implement year round conser-
vation methods.
"This year is going to be worse
than last," she predicted.
However, she ended on an
optimistic note. She said that if
residential and agricultural users
do their part in the water conser-
vation program of SFWMD there
will be a stable water supply.

Water conservation critical as state enters dry season


The 2007 Atlantic hurricane
season ended Friday, November
30, officially making last month's
Tropical Storm Noel as the final
major rain event of the South
Florida wet season. Tuesday, the
South Florida Water Management
District .(SFWMD) continued to
advise South Florida residents to
prepare for a prolonged, severe
water shortage with the likeli-
hood of tighter water restrictions
ahead.
"Forecasts for a drier than nor-
mal dry season are already prov-
ing accurate, and with water levels
so critically low, now is the time
to observe more aggressive water
conservation practices," said Car-
ol Ann Wehle, executive director
of the SFWMD. "There is much
we can do both inside and out-
side the home to collectively save
millions of gallons of water each
day. Conservation is the simplest,
cheapest,' most effective way to
stretch our water supplies."


Recent rainfall
measures
SFWMD meteorologists re-
corded a half-indh of rainfall Dis-
trict-wide for November 2007, just
19 percent of the historical average
for the month. This marks the re-
gion's fifth driest November since
1932, just two-tenths of an inch
more than the record low of 0.30
inches reached twice, in Novem-
ber 1940 and November 1944.
District-wide rainfall through
the first 11 months of 2007 also re-
mains well below normal at 41.6
inches an eight-inch deficit rela-
tive to the year-to-date average.
Current Water Levels
Surface water and groundwa-
ter levels across most of the Dis-
trict remain unseasonably low
and already'are showing signs of
decline with the start of the dry
season. The water level in Lake
Kissimmee, for instance, is. well


below its regulation schedule
as established by the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers.
At 10.26 feet above see level
this morning, Lake Okeechobee
remains nearly five feet below
its historical average and more
than a foot below previous histor-
ic lows for this time of year. In
fact, water levels in the lake have
been setting new record daily
lows for more than six months.
Lake Okeechobee is the source of
water for 500,000 acres of farm-
land in the Everglades Agricultural
Area and is a primary back-up
supply Ito more than five million
South Eloridians.
Groundwater levels in Lee,
Collier and other west coast coun-
ties are two-to-four feet lower to-
day than this time last year, with
many monitoring wells already in-
side the lowest 10 percent of their
historic water elevations. With-
out sufficient freshwater in the re-
gional system to prevent saltwater
intrusion, salinity levels in the Up-


per Caloosahatchee Estuary are
high and, should they continue to
climb, are likely to threaten oys-
ters and aquatic vegetation.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

"Everyone in Belle Glade

families," the South Bay mayor
said. "They are beautiful people
who make an impact on the en-
tire Glades area. The deputies'
lives may have been short, but
I am so honored to celebrate
their lives as young, African-
American men. Let's celebrate
the fact that the two young men

World AIDS Week in the

in the nation.

back Antoine McCloude.
On McCoy's first offensive
series on the game, he went 5-
for-5 passing for 38 yards, not
including a 23-yard run of his
own.
The drive would put the Raid-
ers into a 17-17 tie game with
8:03 left in the fourth quarter.
But the play that could have
very well ended the Raiders
season wasa 90-yard kickoff re-
turn for a touchdown by Naples
kick returner/defensive back
Antwain Harvey; it happened
with 7:52 left in the fourth, im-
mediately after the Raiders tied
the game up.
Down 24-17, the Raiders
+ tried to muster a drive to put
them back in the game, but
they couldn't convert on fourth
down,:giving the Golden Eagles
the ballback with 6:44 left.,
The Golden Eagles ate up
the majority of the clock with
their efficient running game,
led by running back Greg Pratt,
who finished with 19 carries for
167 yards.
The Raiders defense could
not stop' the Naples running
game on that game-killing drive;
it resulted in a 33-yard field goal
by kicker Robert Randolph with
2:10 left.
The Raiders were down 27-
17 at that point, but McCoy cer-
tainly didn't seem fazed by that
deficit..
On only three plays, McCoy
went 3-for-3 passing, capped by
a 71-yard touchdown pass to
wide receiver Fred Pickett with
1:18 left. The Raiders were now
only down by a field goal.
But on the ensuing onside
kick, the Golden Eagles recov-
ered and they ran the clock out,
effectively ending Glades Cen-
tral's season.
McCoy, one of Glades Cen-
tral's bright spots, finished 8-
for-10 passing with 132 yards
and a touchdown ,- all in the
fourth quarter.
But, overall, it was a very dis-
appointing game for the Raid-
ers,' as they figured early on to
blow Naples out on their own
field.
"We ran a lot of plays, but
just fell short," Coach Snead
said. "This time of the year, you
have to cash in on your oppo-
nents. We just didn't make the
plays when they counted."

touchdown pass from Holley to

Mr. Branch has served as
commissioner previously.
According to the city clerk, in
submitting their request to be
considered, the five candidates
were required to write and turn
in a letter of interest and their
resumes.
Originally, the final choice
was to be made during a Dec.
11 meeting following candidate
interviews. According to Mimi
McAndrews, the city attorney,
there is a possibility that the


classmates from the Class of
1992 -- both deputies were
graduates from Pahokee High
School -- remembered his life
as like a wolverine. Wolverines
are described as having a strong
body and a relentless nature,
according to the classmate.
One of Deputy Manuel's
aunts echoed the sentiment.
"Growing up, he always
wanted to become a police
officer and he died, living his
dream," the aunt said. "He was
a devoted father, friend and
nephew. He was very devoted
to his job."
'The same was said about
Deputy Wallace, particularly
when Bennie Everett, his best
friend and classmate from the
Class of 2002, spoke on the
deputy's behalf.

Major events that will be tak-
ing place include tonight's can-
dle light ceremony, which will
begin with an AIDS ceremony
program at 5:30 p.m. in front
of Belle Glade City Hall. It will
be followed by a walk from city
hall to the Dolly Hand Cultural
Arts Center.
Those who will participate
in the walk are encouraged to
wear walking shoes and bring
flashlights, according to World
AIDS Week representatives.
During the World AIDS Hope
and Remembrance Obser-


quarter, the offense was held in
check by the Golden Eagles.
Even with a 10-3 halftime
lead in favor of the Raiders,
there was a feeling that missed
opportunities would catch up.
to them.
Naples quarterback Juno
Prudhomm threw only four
passes in the game, but scored
two rushing touchdowns in the
second half.
The pivotal third quarter was
brutal for the Raiders, as they
registered no first downs and al-
lowed Naples to amass six first
downs, all on running plays;
Also, the Golden Eagles had
a nice game'plan to shut down
senior receiver Travis Benja-
min; he was double and tripled-
teamed by Naples defenders
the entire game as he registered
only two catches for 22 yards.
"We felt like we have the
best wide receivers in the coun-
try," Coach Snead said. "We
thought we could do anything
we wanted in the game."
Obviously, that didn't hap-
pen.
The Golden Eagles special
teams were outstanding too. In
addition to the kickoff return for
a touchdown, Randolph was
very effective in not giving Ben-
jamin a chance to beat them on
kickoff and:punt returns.
That was possible because
Randolph punted the ball into
the sidelines almost every time
Naples had to punt and on kick-
offs, the kicks would sail into
the end zone, effectively start-
ing Raiders drives at the 20 yard
line. .
With decent field position to
start on almost every offensive
series, Coach Snead had this to
say.
"We just didn't finish our
drives," Coach Snead said.
And for that, the Glades Cen-
tral Raiders, who finished at
11-2, were denied an opportu-
nity to repeat as Class 3A state
champions.
American Heritage 28,
Glades Day 7: The Glades Day
Gators were denied a trip to.
Orlando for the Class 1A state
championship for one primary
reason.
The Gators simply could not
stop the American Heritage
Stallions running attack.
Glades Day allowed the Stal-
lions to gain 336 yards rushing
on 45 carries ,and four touch-
downs.
It's as simple as it gets.
To make matters worse, for
the second consecutive game
against the Stallions the Oct.
12 regular season game was a
33-8 blowout loss for Glades


vacant seat may not be filled
until the next election, currently
slated for March of 2008.
"Considering the holidays
and the few number of meeting
left between now and the elec-
tion, some people may think-
it is not worth the effort to go
through the appointment pro-
cess at this time," the city at-
torney said. "Those who may
have made a good candidate
might decide not to go through
the time and trouble of applying
and being interviewed, only to
serve for a few weeks."
Ms. McAndrews said that the
proper voting process for the
vacant seat include, in order,
the commissioners formalizing


"There were many paral-
lels in our lives," Mr. Everett
said. "Both of our fathers were
best friends, our mothers both
worked for the sheriff's office
and we were best friends."
Delivering his tribute like
a fiery preacher, there were a
couple of comments that struck
like a chord, in part to how they
were said.
"To be absent from the body
is to be present with the Lord,"
Mr. Everett said in a passion-
ate tone. "We miss him, we
love him but God loves him the
best."

dered a moving and uplifting
selection, entitled 'In the City',
the choir, family members and
much of the audience were
rejoicing the deputies' lives. It

the Dolly Hand Center shortly
after the walk, there will be a
presentation of World AIDS me-
morial quilt panels and candle-
light tributes to a variety of local
organizations and individuals,
among other activities.
The Glades Central High
School Marching Band will be
making a special appearance
during tonight's events.
Tomorrow at the Dolly

Day they allowed tvwo 100-yard
rushers. Stallions quarterback
Justin Feagin attempted only
two passes; but finished with
139 rushing yards on 19 carries.
Running back James Bradley
had 16 carries for 131 yards and
a touchdown.
To add to the Gators woes,
there were two other Stallions
running backs that really killed
them. Jake Walker and Darius
Milines accounted for the other
three rushing touchdowns.
For next season, Glades Day
might want to make some ad-
justments that run defense of
theirs, it was essentially the de-
ciding factor to what effectively
ended the Gators season at 10-
3.
Also, the Gators have an
emerging junior quarterback in
Bo Schlecter. Though he wasn't
able to engineer a touchdown
drive for them until late in the
fourth quarter, a 1-yard rush-
ing touchdown by outgoing se-
nior Cody Davis next season
looks to be very promising for
Schlecter and the Gators.
Pahokee 41, Frostproof
13: The Pahokee Blue Devils
dedicated the ,Class 2B state
semifinal game to the tragic
deaths of 3-year-old girl John-
Tashia Bennett, who was killed
in a car accident last Monday
night, and two Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office depu-
ties, Jonathan D. Wallace and
Donta J. Manuel, who were
killed by aK-9 deputy patrol car
less than two days later.
The Blue Devils fans at Lair
SField would not be disappoint-
ed as Pahokee put on yet an-
other dominant performance
on offense, defense and special
teams.,
The game's first score came
courtesy of a 35-yard intercep-
tion return for a touchdown by
Carlos Lammons. On offense,
the running game was out-
standing as the Blue Devils reg-
istered 230 total rushing yards
on 27 carries.
Vincent Smith, who had two
touchdowns in the game, fin-
ished with 12 carries for 158
yards. Marcus Washington ac-
counted for the other rushing
touchdown, scoring on his only
carry, which came in the sec-
ond quarter.
On the passing front, senior
quarterback Anthony Sheppard,
who has never lost a game,
threw for 223 yards on 12-for-
20 passing, including a 57-yard
touchdown pass to Martavious
Odoms in the second quarter.
Janoris Jenkins scored a
touchdown on special teams
with a 81-yard punt return, also

Following that, in a candi-

Ms. McAndrews added that

was almost as if some heaviness
was lifted from the ceremony --
an almost joyous moment.
After the ceremony ended,
each closed casket was taken to
their hearses, one by one, with
everyone filing out.
Bishop Bud Mickens, who
was the master of ceremonies,
shared a parting thought with
those in attendance
"We need to remember the
deputies not only in a time like
this, but also in the good times
they had with us," Bishop Mick-
ens said.

Thomas Cherizard, who
is also a GHI representative,
is not scheduled to be one of
the speakers for the provider's
conference but will be speak-
ing during tonight's memorial
event.

those who passed away from
AIDS but also to educate the
community in AIDS aware-
ness," Mr. Cherizard said.

in the second quarter.
With the Blue Devils up 35-0
at halftime, you knew the game
would be over for Frostproof.
But if there was one thing
the Blue Devils couldn't do, it
would be stopping Frostproof
running back Carlton Thomas,.
who has committed to the Uni-
versity of Georgia and is one of
the top 100 players in the coun-
try, according to Rivals.com.
Thomas finished with 191
yards on 23 carries with two
touchdowns. It must be noted,
however, that those scores and
many of those yards came in
the second half, when Pahokee
was already up by five touch-
downs.
The Blue Devils, who are
now 13-0 for the season and rid-
ing a 27-game winning streak,
will play Newberry for the Class
2B state championship on Sat-
urday at 1p.m. in Orlando.
The state championship
game, to be played at the Citrus
Bowl, is an opportunity for the
Blue Devils to claim their fourth
Class 2B state title in five years
and fifth overall.. Also, Shep-
pard has a golden opportunity
to become an undefeated quar-
terback for his illustrious high
school career at 28-0.

How is your Christmas IQ?


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
For years I have shared this
Christmas I.Q. test with friends
and church members as a fun
way to focus on what we really
know about the Christmas event.
We have our nativity sets, our
Christmas cards and our Christ-
mas carols, which is great. The
problem is that legend has been
busy with them over the years.
This I.Q. test helps bring some of
these legends to light. See how
well you do!
1. As long as Christmas has
been celebrated, it has been on
December 25th. (T or F)
2. Joseph was from: (A) Beth-
lehem, (B) Jerusalem, (C) Naza-
reth, (D) Egypt, (E) Chicago, (F)
None of the above.
3. How did Joseph and Mary
travel to Bethlehem? (A) Joseph
walked, Mary rode a donkey. (B)
Mary walked, Joseph rode a don-
key. (C) They both walked. (D)
They both rode. (E) They hitch-
hiked. (F) They flew. (G) Who
Knows?
4. What did the innkeeper tell
Mary and Joseph? (A) "Come
back after the Christmas rush
and I should have some vacan-
cies." (B) "I have a stable you


can use." (C) "There is no room
at the inn." (D) Both B and C (E)
None of the above.
5. Jesus was
delivered in a:
(A) Stable. (B)
Manger. (C)
Cave. (D) Barn.
(E) Unknown
6. A Manger
is a: (A) Stable
for domestic
animals (B) John
Wooden hay Hicks
storage bin (C)
Feeding Trough. (D) Barn.
7. Which animals does the
Bible say were present at Jesus'
birth? (A). Cows, sheep, goats.
(B). Cows, donkeys, sheep (C)
Lowing cattle (D) Misc. barnyard
animals (E) Lions, tigers, and
bears (F). None of the above.
.8. Who saw the "Star in the
East"? (A) Shepherds (B) Mary
and Joseph (C) Three Kings (D)
Both A and C (E) None of the
above.
9. What sign did the angels
tell the shepherd to look for? (A)
"This way to baby Jesus" (B) A
star over Bethlehem (C) A baby
that doesn't cry (D) A house with
a Christmas tree (E) A baby in a
stable (F) None. of the above.
10. How many wise men
came to see Jesus? (A) 3 (B) 12


v


The incomparable Christ!


(C) 4 (D) No one knows
11. The wise men found Jesus
in a: (A). Manger (B). Stable (C).
House (D) Good Mood ,
12. Where do we find the
Christmas story in order to check
on all of these ridiculous ques-
tions? (A) Matthew (B) Mark
(C) Luke (D) John (E) All of the
above (F) A and B. (G) A and C
(H) A, B, and C (I) Genesis (J)
The 4 Gospels (K) The Epistles-
(L) Television.
ANSWERS: (1) False. Not until
the fourth century did it settle on
the 25th. (2) A. See Luke 2:3,4.
(3) H. The Bible doesn't say, but
A would be a good answer if Jo-
seph were a smart man! (4) E.
No word about the innkeeper.
See Luke 2:7. (5) E. No word
about it. He was placed in a man-
ger which might lead us to think
"stable." See Luke 2:7. (6) C. (7)
F The Bible doesn't specify. (8)
E. The wise men did. They were
not kings. See Matthew 2:2 (9) F.
See Luke 2:12 (10) D. Early tra-
dition had 12, then 3 one wise
man for each gift, but nobody re-
ally knows for sure. See Matthew
2:1. (11) C. Matthew 2:11 (12) G.
Mark begins with John the Bap-
tist; John with "the Word".
Share the story. Share the love.
Share the Savior!


Christmas is coming, The Lord is coming: What it can mean?


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
An acquaintance told me about
being inspired by an evangelistic
person. The minister could keep
his attention and spoke of things
that struck where it mattered.
One day, my acquaintance decid-
ed to look up the evangelist and
share a personal concern with
him. He was disappointed; tell-
ing me that "at a distance, he was
great, but when it came to things
that-were really bothering me, he
just wasn't there." Unlike Paul,
being "all things to all people"
is a rare gift indeed. I suggested
he find someone with whom he
could get "down and dirty" and
gave him a couple of suggested


names. It is commonplace for all
of us to have an image of some-
one as we begin to know them,
a mental picture ,.j .,
of what they are :.'.
like.
Sometimes
is confirmed as
we get to know
that person bet- _
ter; other times,
our images are
shattered and Samuel S.
we find out they Thomas
might not be at
all like we thought they were.
With Christmas upon us, there is
that image of a baby in a manger.
We all imagine the innocence and
wonder, the miracle of birth, the
excitement in the household that
found itself in a stable behind an


inn, the visitors, the setting. Jesus
was born into our world; that's
the Christmas story. We don't
hear much about Him for about
twelve years afterward; those
years when He would have been
growing up and when younger
brothers and. sisters would have
joined the family. It is during
those years, when the baby Jesus
became more truly "incarnate"
that we can only imagine what
took place.
What does it mean; this
Christmas event when the Lord
came into the world and became
fully human? I can picture a small
child in a carpenter's shop; some
of my earliest memories were
when I was in my father's shop
in our basement. I can imagine
Him getting sawdust in His hair,


or an occasional splinter in His
finger.
I can picture the adjustment
in the family when younger
brothers and sisters shared with
Jesus' earthly family: I can re-
member the coming of my own
brothers being born into our
household. These are things that
we've all shared in one way or
another; Jesus shared them too.
They are a part of what makes
us truly human; fully a part of an
earthly family, fully binding us in
deep relationships that teach us
about a parent's love or bond-
ing among brothers and sisters.
It will provide us with strength to
face the days when the protec-
tion and shelter of the first home
gives way to the maturity and
obligations of adulthood; our


"discipleship" will become an
"apostleship" and we will have
acquired what it takes to take our
place in God's scheme of things
for us.
John wrote about the Lord's
earliest moments as he began his
gospel account: "The Word be-
came flesh and made His dwell-.
ing among us. We have seen His
glory, the glory of the One and
only who came from the Father
full of grace and truth (John
1:14)." When the Lord made His
dwelling among is it would be
about all of our life to be shared;
the sawdust, the splinters, the
brothers and sisters, the love of
parents and the earthly part of His
preparation for His ministry here.
We celebrate Christmas in part
because we remember His com-


ing into this world to immerse
Himself fully into it. God chose to
have no false images about what
people are like, and what life on
earth is all about. Jesus' willing-
ness to "get down and dirty"
makes the occasion all the more
special. It is about God reaching
beyond our images or being off
at a distance; it is about our find-
ing Him nearby when the going
gets rough and His being able to
understand what we might never
dare to share with others.
Christmas is about Jesus: fully
human, so that we might see
Him in all of His glory. He can
say "I've been there. I know what
it is like." That's an act of love;
but that's what babies are about
anyway. That's what Christmas is
about too!

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


19 RELIGIONi


By Jackie Miller,
minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
He came from the bosom
of the Father to the bosom of
a woman. He put on humanity
that we might put on divinity.
He became Son of Man that we
might become Sons of God.
He was born in a supernatu-
ral way, lived in poverty, reared
in obscurity. Only once crossed
the boundary of the land, in
childhood. He had not wealth
nor influence and no college
education, yet the profound-
est wisdom of men has never
equaled His last discourse
in John 13 to 17 and the Ser-
mon on the Mount. Never man
spake like this man!
His relatives were incon-
spicuous and non-influential.
In infancy He startled a king; in
boyhood He puzzled the doc-
tors; even at 12 years of age
He was far in advance of the
theologians, for He was taught
of God; in manhood He ruled
the elements, so that He could
defy the laws of gravitation
by walking on the water, and
quiet the raging sea. He healed
the multitudes without medi-


cine, and made no charge for
His services.
He never wrote a book, yet
libraries could not hold the
books that have been written
about Him. He never wrote
a song, yet He has furnished
the theme of more songs that
all song writers combined. He
never founded a college, yet
all the schools together cannot
boast of so many students as
He has.
He, never marshaled an
army, drafted a soldier, nor
fired a gun, yet no leader made
more volunteers, who have
under His orders made rebels
stack arms or surrender with-
out a shot being fired.
Great men have come and
gone, yet He lives on! Herod
could not kill Him, Satan could
not seduce Him, death could
not hold Him, and even de-
mons obeyed Him. He fed the
hungry multitudes with a little
boy's lunch, broke up funer-
als, and gave back life to those
who were dead.
He laid aside His purple
robe for a peasant's gown. He
was rich, yet for our sakes He
became poor. How poor? Ask


Mary. Ask the Wise Men. He
slept in another's manger; He
cruised the lake in another's
boat. He rode on a borrowed
beast. He was buried in a rich
man's tomb.
He conquered death, rose
after three days as He said He
would, ascended into Heaven,
is now at the right hand of the
throne of God, with all authori-
ty in Heaven and Earth, and will
one day come in the clouds of
Heaven with power and great
glory for His own born-again,
blood-bought ones to be for-
ever with Him according to
promises, after which, He will
judge the world in righteous-
ness, when every knee shall
bow to Him and every tongue
shall confess Him as Lord---His
friends gladly, but His enemies
reluctantly, seeking for a place
to hide from His face (Rev.
6:15).
The ever Perfect One He
is the Chief among ten thou-
sands, the only One who can
satisfy the soul and give ever-
lasting LIFE to those who have
it not. HE IS ALTOGETHER
LOVELY, and HE is my very
own SAVIOR!

JUNO BEACH -- 'Tis the sea-
son of holiday lights and deco-
rations. It's also the season of
spending. Florida Power & Light
Co. says for financial and energy
savings, energy efficient lights are
an illuminating choice.

Greener lights
Energy Efficient LEDs, or Light
Emitting Diode lights, are gaining
popularity this season. In fact,
this year the Times Square New
Year's Eve Ball will be redesigned
and completely illuminated by
LEDs. In its December issue, Con-
sumer Reports compares regular
mini and standard-sized holiday
lights to LED light strands. When
it comes to energy efficiency, the
LED lights were the clear winner.
They use up to 98 percent less
energy than traditional lights, sav-
ing approximately $4 for every 10
strands you hang. And while they
may cost more to purchase, LEDs
pay back the cost difference in 3
seasons. LEDs also have a much
longer life than conventional light
bulbs, lasting up to 100,000 hours
or more indoors, or about 50,000
hours when used outside.
Consumer Reports also
checked the burning tempera-
ture of the bulbs. Traditional
incandescent lights were much
hotter. Because the LEDs run
much cooler, they can use plastic
on the bulbs instead of glass. So
they're more durable and pose a
lower fire risk.
LED holiday lights are avail-
able at many retailers, and at
FPL's online store by visiting
www.fpl.com/online.


To further reduce energy costs
this holiday season, use tim-
ers on all electrically-powered
decorations to automatically turn
them off during daylight hours
and other times.

Sparkle safely
FPL also asks that you bright-
en your holiday safely with the
following tips:
Never use indoor lighting
outside.
Check lights for damage,
and discard broken strings.
Look up and be aware of
any power lines when deco-
rating outdoors. Avoid raising
ladders and other extended ob-
jects into or near power lines.
Before installing outdoor
lights on trees, make sure tree
limbs haven't grown into or
near electric, lines.
Make electric cords inac-
cessible to pets and toddlers,
and keep power cords from
under rugs, appliances or oth-
er objects to prevent fire from
overheating.
Use no more than three
sets of conventional lights on a
single extension cord and turn
decorative lights off when leav-
ing home or going to bed
Monitor energy usage for
holiday meals
Cooking uses a lot of energy
under the best of circumstanc-
es. The extra heat of cooking
also adds to the load of your
ventilating, air conditioning and
refrigeration equipment.
As families and friends gath-
er for holiday meals, cook as

Shoppers beware of gift card fraud


TALLAHASSEE -- Attorney
General Bill McCollum has is-
sued a consumer advisory en-
couraging Floridians to be savvy
shoppers when purchasing
and using gift cards this holiday
season. The Attorney General
reminded consumers that gift
cards scams unfortunately can
occur, but basic consumer
awareness and fraud prevention
techniques could spare holiday
shoppers considerable trouble.
Attorney General McCollum also
outlined tips for using gift cards
that would enable gift card re-
cipients to protect themselves
from fraud.
"With the holiday season
in full swing, the potential for
fraud is very real and our citi-
zens should take care to protect
themselves," said Attorney Gen-
eral McCollum. "We want to
make sure Floridians have any
available information to prevent
gift card-related and otier types
of fraudulent activity that may
put a damper on this time of
year."
An important recommenda-
tion this holiday season is to
pay close attention to the fine
print on gift cards. A new law
passed this year by the Florida
Legislature mandates that gift
cards issued in Florida will not
expire or have any fees that
would reduce the value of the
gift card, although gift cards is-


sued before June 28, 2007 can
still have expiration dates, fees
and other terms that could re-
duce their value. The Florida
Retail Federation estimates that
Florida consumers will spend
one out of every five dollars on
gift cards this Christmas season.
Nationwide, consumers are pro-
jected to spend approximately
$25 billion on gift cards during
the 2007 holiday season.
"Gift cards will be a popu-
lar gift item this Christmas. We
urge consumers to use them
wisely and treat them the same
as cash," said Rick McAllister,
President of the Florida Retail
Federation.
The Attorney General's Office
also released the following tips
for buying and using gift cards:
* Buy gift cards from repu-
table sources. Avoid buying gift
cards from online auction
sites as these cards may be sto-
len or counterfeit or may have
been obtained fraudulently.
Always read the fine print
before purchasing gift cards.
Inspect the card before
buying. Verify that none of the
protective stickers have been
removed. Ensure that the codes
on the back of the card have
not been scratched off to reveal
a PIN number. Report altered
cards to the store selling the
cards.
Give the recipient the


original receipt to verify the
card's purchase value in case
the card is lost or stolen.
* Ask about purchase excep-
tions, including any terms of use
that may vary regarding a store's
website versus the physical store,
location.
Treat gift cards like cash. If
a card is lost or stolen, report -it
to the issuer immediately. Most
issuers have toll-free numbers to
report lost or stolen cards.
Complaints about gift cards
should first be reported to the
retailer or financial institution
that issued the card. If the prob-
lem can't be resolved at that lev-
el, consumers may want to file .
complaint with the appropriate
authorities. For cards issued by
retailers, consumers may con-
tact the Federal Trade Commis-
sion at http://www.ftc.gov or
call toll-free: 1-877-FTC-HELP.
For cards issued by national
banks, consumers may contact
the Comptroller of the Currency
(OCC) Customer Assistance
Group by calling 1-800-613-6743
or sending an e-mail to: custom-
er.assistance@occ.treas.gov.
The OCC charters, regulates,
and supervises national banks"
some of which issue gift cards.
Complaints may also be report-
ed to the Attorney General's Of-
fice through the fraud hotline

Candlelighter kids display their artwork


SOUTHWEST FLORIDA For
the past years, Candlelighters of
Southwest Florida, Inc. contin-
ues to serve children diagnosed
with cancer and blood disorders
throughout Southwest Florida.
The non-profit charity offers a
variety of free programs and ser-
Vices to meet the growing needs
of local families dealing with a
life threatening illness.
Candlelighters of Southwest
Florida, Inc. is pleased to pres-
ent the 11th Annual "Brighten


My World," project, an exhibi-
tion featuring talents of local
Candlelighter artists whose lives
have been touched by cancer or
Sblood-related diseases. The art-
work offers a unique insight into
the special issues children face
allowing us to view them from
the child's prospective-a pain-
ful memory but more often, the
brighter side of dealing with an
illness like cancer.
Brighten My World art will be
displayed throughout the holiday


season, part of our national effort
to raise greater awareness of the
special needs of young cancer
patients, children with blood dis-
orders and also, their siblings.
Visit the Candlelighter chil-
dren's artwork in the art gallery
at the Broadway Palm Theater
throughout December.
"Candlelighters is as unique a
charity as the children and fami-
lies we have in the Southwest
Florida area," said Klair Snell-
baker, executive director. "For


over 25 years, the donations the
Candlelighters receive continue
to touch the lives of more than
350 families served who live in
Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry
and Lee Counties."

USDA assigns counties as natural disaster areas


SGAINESVILLE -- The U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture designat-
ed 58 Florida counties as primary
natural disaster areas because of
losses caused by drought that oc-
curred on Jan. 1, 2007, and con-
tinuing, announced Kevin' L. Kel-
ley, State Executive Director for the
USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA).
Hendry, Glades and Collier
Counties are among those desig-
nated as well including surround-
ing counties and others through-
out the drought ravaged state.
F _


Farm operators in Broward,
Charlotte, Highlands, Lee, Mimi-
Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee,
Palm Beach and Pinellas counties
in Florida also qualify for natural
disaster benefits because their
counties are contiguous.
All counties listed above were
designated natural disaster ar-
eas on Nov. 26, 2007, making all
qualified farm operators in the
'designated areas eligible for low
interest emergency (EM) loans
from USDA's Farm Service Agency


(FSA), provided eligibility require-
ments are met. Farmers in eligible
counties have eight months from
the date of the declaration to ap-
ply for loans to help cover part of
their actual losses. FSA will con-
sider each loan application on its
own merits, taking into account
the extent of losses, security avail-
able and repayment ability. FSA
has a variety of programs, in ad-
dition to the EM loan program, to
help eligible farmers recover from
adversity.
