South Bay selects city manager


Framework of
contract has yet to
be finalized

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY -- At the begin-
ning of the Jan. 15 commission
meeting, the South Bay commis-'
sioners voted to select Lomax
Harrelle as its city manager.
The selection generally came
down to which candidate had
the most experience in munici-
pal government.


The commissioners decided
that, of the three candidates -
- Leondrae Camel and Esmeta
Stewart were the other two -- Mr.
Harrelle was the best fit to move
the city along.
"Mr. Lomax Harrelle knows
everything about the city," Com-
missioner John Wilson said,
while making the motion to
hire Mr. Harrelle shortly thereaf-
ter. "He is someone that I think
could bring this city back."
Mr. Harrelle previously served
as the acting city manager of
South Bay from May 1980 to May
1982, while later taking on the


official city manager role until
Sep. 1987.
Commissioner Shirley Walk-
er-Turner felt that after the can-
didates were interviewed -- the
interview selection took place
on Jan. 8 -- Mr. Harrelle was the
most qualified applicant. Howev-
er, Commissioner Walker-Turner
did admit to having some reser-
vations about the selection.
Mr. Harrelle was arrested on
Sept. 17, 1998 by the Belle Glade
City Police and faced felony
charges of official misconduct,
according to published reports.
According to the police re-

port, there were six incidents of
such misconduct; also according
to published reports, the former
Belle Glade city manager was
later released from jail on $3,000
bond.
While Mr. Harrelle was the
Belle Glade city manager -- his
tenure lasted from Aug. 1990 to
Aug. 1998 -- he was accused of
using city supplies and city em-
ployees for his own personal
gain.
Notwithstanding the reports
of criminal activity, the South
Bay commissioners seemed
convinced that he's the best man


for the role,
In the end, Mayor Clarence
Anthony seconded the motion,
with Commissioners Joe Kyles
and Shirley Walker Turner voting
in favor of the hiring. Vice-Mayor
Esther Berry opposed the ac-
tion.
Mr. Harrelle was not present
at the commission meeting.
According to Mayor Anthony,
a framework of Mr. Harrelle's
contract has yet to be finalized.
There were no other details avail-
able at the commission meeting,

Teenager shot



in the face


Victim is in
stable condition

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE A high
school student was shot in the
face in plain daylight in a case
that the sheriff's office is study-
ing very closely.
On Wednesday, Jan. 16, a
15-year-old boy was reportedly
shot near the 715 Mobile Hope
Park. in Belle Glade, according
to the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office said. /
The shooting occurred at
12:24 p.m., less than an hour
after the Glad-es Central High
School students were released
from school due to semester
examinations.


According to Paul Miller,
a spokesperson for the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO), the victim suffered a
gunshot wound to his face as
a four-door Honda Accord with
tinted windows pulled up.
The victim was transported
to Glades General Hospital for
observation, officials said. He
was later airlifted to St. Mary's
Medical Center, where he was
listed in stable condition.
"The shooting causes con-
cern because we're figuring out
why a young person would be
shot like that in broad daylight,"
Mr. Miller said. "We're trying to
see if the shooting is gpy r'a -
ed at this time." -

Attorney General warns

medicine can be harmful


TALLAHASSEE -- Attorney
General Bill McCollum issued a
consumer advisory on the heels
of an advisory from the Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) that
warned over-the-counter cold
medicines should not be given
to children under the age of two
years old. The FDA advisory cites
possible side effects that could be
serious and potentially life-threat-
ening in babies and toddlers and
warns parents that while the
medicines might appear to ease
cold symptoms in older children,
there is no evidence that they ac-
tually help younger children.
It is imperative that parents get
this important message of safety
for their young children, said At-
torney General McCollum. "When,
a child is sick, our first instinct is
to do whatever we can to make
them feel better, but parents need
to be aware that medicines once
thought to be safe could instead
be deadly."
Attorney General McCollum re-
minded parents that cold season
is still in full swing and parents
should make sure they don't give
their younger children medicine
they may have purchased to give
their older siblings. The Centers
for Disease Control and Preven-


tion reported last year that more
than 1,500 babies and toddlers
wound up in emergency rooms
over a two-year period because
of the drugs. The FDA has also
found more than 120 child deaths
have been directly linked to anti-
histamines or decongestants over
the past 40 years.
The FDA has not yet deter-
mined whether older children are
also at risk but offered the follow-
ing guidelines for parents when
giving older children the medi-
cines: follow the dosing direc-
tions on the label of any over-the-
counter medication; understand
that these drugs will NOT cure or
shorten the duration of the com-
mon cold; check the "Drug Facts"
label to learn what active ingredi-
ents are in the products because
many over-the-counter cough
and cold products contain mul-
tiple active ingredients; and only
use measuring spoons or cups
that come with the medicine or
those made specifically for mea-
suring drugs.
More information, including
the FDA advisory, is available on
the FDA's website at http://www.
fda.gov/cder/index.html.


Understanding your property taxes


By Kristina Kulpa
Hendry County Property
Appraiser
For the past four weeks I
have been explaining the vari-
ous parts of Amendment One
that you will be voting on Jan.
29, 2008.
This week I will address
Non-Homestead Property As-
sessment Cap. The first part
will show the Amendment as
it will appear on the ballot, af-
ter that I will have a couple of
examples to help you under-
stand what this Cap will do for
you if passed.
The non-homestead .prop-
erty assessment cap limits
the assessment increases for
specified non homestead real
property to 10 percent each
year. Property will be as-
sessed at just value following
an improvement, as defined
by general law, and may be
assessed at just value follow-
ing a change of ownership or
control if provided by general
law. This limitation does not
apply to school district taxes.
This limitation is repealed ef-
fectiye January 1, 2019, unless
renewed by a vote of the elec-
tors in the general election
held in 2018.
Further, this revision:
Repeals obsolete lan-
guage on the homestead ex-
emption when it was less than
$25,000 and did not apply uni-
formly to property taxes lev-
ied by all local governments.
Provides for homestead
exemptions to be repealed if
a future constitutional amend-
ment provides for assessment
of homesteads "at less than
just value" rather than as cur-
rently provided "at a specified
percentage" of just value.
Schedules the changes to
take effect upon approval by
the electors and operate retro-
actively to January 1, 2008, if
approved in a special election
held on January 29, 2008, or
to take effect January 1, 2009,
if approved in the general
election held in November of
2008. The limitation on an-
nfual assessment increases for
specified real property shall
first apply to the 2009 tax roll
if this revision .is approved in a
special election held on Janu-
zl l


ary 29, 2008, or shall first ap-
ply to the 2010 tax roll if this
revision is approved in the
general election held in No-
vember of 2008.
If passed the following is
how the Amendment will ap-
ply to you.
Beginning January 1, 2009,
an assessment cap similar to
Save Our Homes is proposed
for non-homestead proper-
ties. The annual assessment
cap on these types of proper-
ties will be ten percent.
To receive the assessment
cap the owner of the property
will be required to file an an-
nual application. This non-
homestead property assess-
ment cap applies to owners
of second homes, commercial
properties and vacant parcels.
It does not apply to school dis-
trict levies.
For example if your prop-
erty is valued at $100,000 this
year and property values go
up by 20 percent next year,
the market value of your prop-
erty will be $120,000, but your
taxable value will only be
$110,000. Based on a tax rate
of 17.5 mils you will save $175
in next years taxes.
Another example is if your
property is valued at $100,000
this year and property values
go up by eight percent next
year, the market value of your
property will be $108,000,
--and your taxable value will
be $108,000. Because the in-
crease in property value did
not reach the 10 percent limit.
This assessment limitation
does not apply to school tax
levies.
The assessment limitation
will expire in ten years. At
that time, voters will decide
whether to reauthorize it.
Residential properties of
nine units or less will surren-
der accumulated protections
at change of ownership or
control, as defined by gen-
eral law. Initial application
required, you must apply by
March 1.
This exemption does not
apply to Classified Use (Green-
belt/Ag) Lands.
I hope this information
has helped you to understand
Amendment One, however
if you have questions on any


part of the Amendment you

your questions and concerns
that you may have with any
part of this Amendment.

WEST PALM BEACH -
Residents of Palm Beach,
Okeechobee, Hendry and Glades
Counties now have a new,
convenient way to get trained in
lifesaving skills such as CPR and
First Aid all online. The American
.Red Cross Greater Palm Beach
Area Chapter's new web-portal
will allow students to take CPR,
'First Aid and OSHA classes on
'their schedule.
"We know that people are
busy and it's hard to find time
,to sit in a class and learn first aid
or CPR. However, we believe
that these skills are extremely
valuable because they make our
.homes, schools, workplaces and
communities safer. That's why we
'decided to offer online training,"
said Linda Olson, Director of
'Health and Safety Education.
Online training is extremely
beneficial because it allows
individuals to learn on their own
-time and at their own pace.
Classes can be accessed any time
of day from a computer with an
Internet connection. Students
may advance at their own speed,
which allows individuals to
absorb the information in a way
that works best for them.
Red Cross online training
was designed to meet a-variety
of learning styles. The courses
offer a combination of written
material, photos and videos. Red
Cross online training was built
;with accessibility requirements
'in mind and can be used with
screen readers or other tools.
In addition, all user support
; technicians are Red Cross-certified
Sipuctors who can:help clarify,
course information and answer


technology questions.
Some online training courses,
such as CPR, require students
to attend a skill session before
a certificate can be issued. Skill
sessions normally take about
two hours and are regularly
scheduled during the week and
the weekends for convenience.
It's easy for students to sign
up. Simply visit www.redcross-
pbc.org and click on the Red
Cross online training button.
From there students can select,
register for and begin a course
in less than five minutes. Or, call
(561) 650-9110 and we can take
your registration over the phone.
Sign up, take a class, attend
a skill session and know how to
respond in an emergency. Online
training offers a way for our
homes, schools, workplaces and
communities to be safer. Log on
today. Visit www.redcross-pbc.
org or call (561) 650-9110 or more
information.
The American Red Cross is
a humanitarian organization
led by volunteers who provide
relief to victims of disaster and
help people prevent, prepare for
and respond to emergencies.
For 90 years, the American Red
Cross Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter, which includes Glades,
Hendry, Okeechobee and Palm
Beach Counties, has been
providing shelter for families
during a hurricane, flood or fire,
and teaching First Aid, CPR, AIDS

County Weed and Seed selects new officers


PALM BEACH COUNTY --
Palm Beach County Weed and
Seed Advisory Board is proud
to announce its 2008 Officers.
The swearing in ceremony was
recently conducted by Anetta
Jenkins, Executive Director
and board member of South
Florida Local Initiatives Support
Corporation.
Weed and Seed is division
of the Palm Beach County
Criminal Justice Commission.
The Weed and Seed program
is funded federally through
the US Department of Justice,
Office of Justice Programs
and the Community Capacity


Development Office (CCDO). It
is also funded locally through the
Board of County Commissioners.
There are five sites throughout
Palm Beach County:. Delray
Beach, two sites in West Palm
Beach, Riviera Beach, and Belle
Glade.
Rolando. Garcia, Deputy
Managing U.S. Attorney for
the South District was named
chairman. Other board members
include Community Advocate
Denise Smith Barnes who will
serve as first vice chairman, John
Green, Director of Community
Development for the City of Riviera
Beach as second vice chairman,


Capt. Tina Heysler of the Delray
Beach Police Department as
treasurer and Michael Greene, of
the Palm Beach County Health
Care Taxing District as secretary.
The program is a strategy
which targets neighborhoods
with a distinguishable number
of high crimes. The "Weeding"
is derived from work with local

Guidelines for a winning catch


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Someone please explain a
great mystery to me. Why is it
that a person who is generally
honest in all things cannot give
you an accurate
description of
the fish he has
caught? I mean,
if you asked
this person to
tell you his net
financial worth,
he would tell the
truth. If asked John
to describe his Hicks
,wife he would
do so objectively. But for the life
of him he cannot give an hon-
est, accurate description of a fish
he caught. When showing you
the length of the fish, he cannot
restrain his hands. And it's even
worse when he describes the fish
that got away.
We are right at the start of the
SFLW fishing tournament in Clew-
iston. For the next few days, fish-
ermen and women from all over
ithe United States will be search-
ing Lake O for those special spots
where the fish are gathered and
biting. With the Lake level like it
is, the winners will probably be
Those who find the glory holes
or special spots. The size of their
catches will be recorded, but
there will still be those stories of
the one that got away.


Having enjoyed fishing most
of my life, I decided I would offer
some guidelines from some of my
life lessons. As someone greater
than me once shared, "Those
who have ears, let them hear".
First, if you want to be a suc-
cessful fisherman, you don't look
for the most comfortable spot on
the lake. You go to where the fish
are, and then you make it as easy
and attractive as possible for the
fish to swallow your hook. Those
who repeatedly catch the most
fish are those who understand
fish and strategize accordingly.
In contrast, there are those
who just cast out in the waters
without a strategy, hoping some-
thing might bite. Occasionally
they might have an "even a blind
hog can find an acorn once in
a while" experience, but most
of the time those who have no
strategy have results that show it.
Those who just fish in the most
comfortable fishing spots have
the poorest catches.
Second, know what you are
fishing for. If you are fishing for
bass, there are certain baits that
are more effective than others. If
you are fishing for Crappie, bass
bait would not give you the best
results. Sometimes one bait might
work better on one day and a dif-
ferent bait the next. Bigger fish
bite bigger baits, but you usually
have fewer strikes. Smaller fish
tend to bite more often. Knowing
what you are fishing for is impor-


tant to get the best catch.
Third, realize that there are go-
ing to be times when the fish will
not bite, regardless of what you
might offer them. Those that get
the best catches are those who
stick with it, even in slow times,
and don't give up.
If you think about it, there are
a lot of similarities between fish-
ing for fish and fishing for people.
First, it's important to go where
the people are. There are too
many churches who want to win
people to Christ as long as it can
be done in a comfortable way.
They have no real strategy, and
their results show it.
Second, it's important to know
what you are fishing for. Realize
that you would use a different bait
if you are fishing for children than
if you were fishing for youth or
adults. Don't be afraid to try dif-
ferent baits if you aren't getting
many nibbles on 'what you are
offering.
Third, don't give up. Some-
times the timing isn't right at the
moment to get the catch you are
desiring, but those who keep the
faith and keep at it will get results.
Regroup, re-strategize as neces-
sary following the first and sec-
ond guidelines, and then go out
again.
If you go where the fish are bit-
ing, knowing what you are fishing
for, using the appropriate baits,
and stay at it, statistics show you
vill reap a winning catch.


We stand on Him who is all truth


By Jackie Miller, minister,
First Christian Church, Clewiston
The Christian Church does not
stand on fractions of truth but on
HIM who is all TRUTH! Individual
doctrines save no one; only Christ
saves! Does He not say, "I am THE
TRUTH?" When He is our solid
foundation we say, "For there are
no "truths" which are not inher-
ent in Him who is all truth.
We may listen to any man so
long as he makes plain to us truth.
We may profit from the findings of
Luther, Wesley, George Fox, Rog-
er Williams, Dietrich Bonhoeffer,
Soren Kiefegaard, or any man or
group who call our attention to
what is essentially Christian; but
our faith may not rest on those, for
they are only fellow-servants. We
are indebted to anyone who can
-+- reveal the revelation of the Christ
to us. It must be made clear, how-
ever, that WE STAND ON CHRIST!
We are a part of His Church and
His alone! While standing on Him
"who is Truth we freely admit we
"do not understand Him fully.
Is it necessary to comprehend
*the full depth of our Foundation
to be established in'Him? Eternity
is provided that we might have
:opportunity to appreciate more
'fully the Father and the Son.
The Church can never be es-
tablished on one or more facets
,of Truth. We- may employ meth-
ods without being called Method-
ist; practice baptism (immersion)
without being called Baptists.
-We may admit to the rule of the
Ieldership (Presbyters) without
:being called Presbyterians; may
'be Catholic (universal) without
being called Roman Catholics.
We my accept New Testament


episcopacy without being known
as Episcopalians. We may desire
the warmth of Pentecost and not
belong to the Pentecostal Church;
may be friends without belonging
to the Friends Church. We may
admire Luther and encourage
him to assist our growing faith
without being Lutherans. In fact,
Luther said "Don't call yourselves
Lutherans, but call yourselves
Christians." Truth demands, that
we be independent thinkers
without denominating ourselves;
Independents and cooperative
without naming ourselves Co-
operatives. We may be disciples
without the official title "Dis-
ciples"; may give ear to Thomas
and Alexander Campbell without
being "Campbellites." We admire
and love Paul but are not Paulites.
He asks us as well as the Corin-
thians: "Was Paul crucified for
you?" Our people have desired
to see things whole. We stand
on Christ and count as friends all
teachers, preachers and scholars
who refresh us in the truth and
make the Christ better known to
us. We may accept all men as
brothers in Adam, though we fol-
low none but Christ. We stand on
Christ or we stand on a founda-
tion of sand! To stand on Method
or Baptism or Episcopacy or any
other fraction of truth is essential-
ly idolatrous because it elevates
THINGS less than Christ to a level
with Him. We desire to stand on
ALL TRUTH!
Where we stand (and what
we believe) could be stated very
appropriately in these words of
John R. Bodo, as he paraphrased
the Gettysburg Address: "Four-
score and Seven Generations
ago, the Apostles brought forth


on another continent a new fel-
lowship, conceived in the liberty
of redeemed men, and dedicated
to the proposition that all men
are created for redemption. Now
and always, we are engaged in a
great, global war, testing whether
this fellowship, or any congrega-
tion thereof, is worthy to endure.
We are met on one small battle-
field of that war. We have come to
dedicate our common endeavor
as a living testimony for Him who
gave His life that we might live.
It is altogether fitting. But, in a
large sense, we cannot dedicate,
we cannot hallow this endeavor.
God's only Son, who died and
lives, having conquered death,
has consecrated it far above our
poor power to add or detract.
The world will little note, nor long
remember, what we might do in
2008 A.D.; but it must never forget'
what He did in 29 A.D. It is for us,
his soldiers, therefore to be dedi-
cated to the ongoing work which
He, Who ever goes before us, has
so clearly commanded. It is for us
also to be dedicated to the task at
hand; That from our Living Lord
we take increased devotion; That
we here highly resolve that He
shall not have died in vain; That
this congregation, under God,
shall have a new breadth of ser-
vice; And the Christian Church led
by Christ, striving for Christ shall
advance in all the earth."


Being a witness in spite of



myself; fear affirming faith


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
A while back, I used to make
regular plane trips from Miami
with a stop in Tampa along the
way. The small,
propeller-driv-
en planes had
more turbu-
lence than larger
planes and the
crew explained
it was about the
thermal air cur-
rents across the Samuel S.
Everglades and Thomas
on Tampa Bay.
One flight found me next to a
young lady who became uncom-
fortable as the ride got bumpier.
She turned to me and told me
about her fear, but I assured her
that I had taken this particular
trip many times and all was nor-
mal. I explained about the air
currents and after a few minutes
she became calmer. I felt that I
had done a good deed in a way.
All was well as we arrived at
Tampa, but suddenly we took off
again. This was not normal and
I wondered what was going on.
My neighbor in the next seat told
me how helpful I had been to
her; she was afraid but my calm
presence and my explanation
helped her through. She thanked
me and I became very silent.
I was far less calm inside than
she imagined. The plane started
to descend once more and was
making a second approach at the


airport when it took off a second
time. I was now concerned more
than before; and I looked at my
neighbor who was smiling and
calm. I looked out the window;
it seemed that there were ambu-
lances and fire trucks moving on
the field.
I looked at my now-serene
neighbor and remember that it
felt like blood was draining out
of my face. I was perspiring. We
came in for a third approach and
this time we landed; more gently
than I ever remembered landing
in the past. My heart rate returned
to normal as I walked to the front
of the plane and asked the crew
"What happened?" They told me
that an indicator light which indi-
cated the wheels were down had
failed to come on, and they had to
circle to confirm from the tower
that the wheels were in position
and, hopefully, locked in place.
My seatmate went blissfully on
her way and waved goodbye.
When everythingwas checked
out, we went onto the next leg
of the trip and I continued on-
anyway! As I thought about the
experience, I thought about risky
situations that we all encounter;
some people are better than oth-
ers at some things, not so good
at other risks. The lesson for me
to take from what happened was
to think what it is all about and
who is finally in charge.
There is a long discourse in 2
Corinthians (chapter 11, verses
16) when Paul talks about all
that has happened to him; being
beaten, being shipwrecked; be-


ing imprisoned, being exposed
to death, dangers from friends
and dangers from strangers, be-
ing hungry and thirsty, being
cold, and then having to worry
about how things were going
in the Churches he served. He
notes "If I must boast, I will boast
of the things that show my weak-
ness (v. 30)." He points out that
what has happened to him keeps
him from becoming conceited
(chapter 12, verse 7), he recog-
nizes that we are not self-made
people. In spite of it all, he is as-
sured by God that "My grace is
sufficient for you, for my power
is made perfect in weakness."
Ultimately, it is God's grace
and presence that got me
through that day; that gets me
through, that gets us all through.
Nothing seems to be more a sign
of our mortality than being help-
lessly out of control when we'd
like very much to be in complete
control. It turns out our life is
not to be that way. We cannot
live without God's grace and His
looking after us. The things that
happen to us and leave us weak,
afraid, full of emotions, and yet
do not defeat or kill us, are the
times we can look back and say,
"Surely, God was with us!"
Apparently, I was a silent wit-
ness to a faith that it was going
to be all right on that flight, a wit-
ness to a faith to someone else I
really didn't know. I was witness-
ing to faith and hope even when
I didn't want to be. God uses our
fears and weaknesses too. You
better believe it!

Pomegranates are rich in nutrients Putthe and muscle srinss
1UII~~gI( I(A~L~ 1, ,/ artrids basck parine


If you want a little variety in
your diet, consider pomegran-
ates.
Pomegranates are bright red
fruit filled with juicy seeds. Pome-
granate juice is tart and has a
deep red color.
Pomegranates are high in anti-
oxidants, which help to rid itself
of toxins. Pomegranates are a
good source of potassium and Vi-
tamin C, and also contain calcium
and iron.,
Until recently, the only thing I
knew about pomegranates came
from mythology. According to
Greek mythology, Persephone
was the daughter of Demeter,
goddess of the harvest. Hades, the
Greek god of the Underworld, fell
in love with her and kidnapped
her to be his wife. Demeter was
so upset when her daughter dis-
appeared that she refused to let
anything grow, the world turned
cold and barren. In order to save
the Earth, the Greek god Zeus,
sent the messenger Hermes to
Hades to make him release Perse-
phone, because she had not died,
and so should not have been in
the Underworld. Hades argued
that because Persephone had eat-
en part of a Pomegranate (some
legends say she ate pomegranate
seeds) she could not leave. They
finally agreed on a compromise.
Persephone could return to her
mother, but had to spend part of
each year with Hades, as she had
eaten part of a fruit of the Under-
world. According to the legend,
each year when Persephone re-
turns to Hades, Demeter is so sad
that the world grows cold with
winter.
Many cultures have legends
that include pomegranates. Ac-
cording to some Jewish texts,
it was a pomegranate not an
apple tree that caused all the
trouble in the Garden of Eden.
Pomegranates are red fruit


I with Katrina Elsken

filled with "arils" little juice
sacks that each contain one
seed. Some people just want the
juice, but the seeds themselves
are considered edible and a good
source of fiber. The white mem-
brane that surrounds the arils is
bitter and riot recommended for
consumptbn, according to the
California Pomegranate Council.
In North America, the com-
mercial harvest season is from
October through January. They
grow bes in hot, dry climates.
Pomegranates are not harvest-
ed until they are ripe, so if you
see frest pomegranates for sale,
they are ready to eat. Choose the
best pomegranates by picking
them up, the heavier the fruit,
the mo'e juice it contains.
The council suggests three
methods for juicing pomegran-
ates. If you juice your own, be
careful because, pomegranate
juice stains.
JUCER METHOD: Cut the
fresh pomegranate in half as you
would a grapefruit. We recom-
mend using a hand-press juicer
to jaice a pomegranate. If you
use an electric juicer, take care
not to juice the membrane, so
that the juice remains sweet.
Strain the juice through a cheese-
cloth-lined strainer or sieve.
BLENDER METHOD: Place
1-1/2 to 2 cups seeds in a blend-
er; blend until liquefied. Pour
through a cheesecloth-lined
strainer or sieve.


A
Healthier
Life


ROLLING METHOD: On a
hard surface, press the palm of
your hand against a pomegranate
and gently roll to break all of the
arils inside (crackling stops when
all seed sacs have broken open).
Pierce the rind and squeeze out
juice or poke in a straw and press
to release juice. Rolling can be
done inside a plastic bag to con-
tain juice that leaks through the
skin.
The Pomegranate Council of-
fers these ideas for cooking with
pomegranates:
Pomegranate, Orange,
Papaya and Kiwi Salad
1-1/2 teaspoons white wine
vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pep-
per flakes
1/4 cup olive oil
.1-1/2 quarts mixed greens
2 oranges, peeled and sliced
2 medium papayas, peeled
and sliced
4 kiwis, peeled and sliced
1 medium pomegranate, seed-.
ed (about 3/4 cup)
To make dressing, combine
vinegar and next three ingredi-
ents; whisk in oil. Toss greens
with 2-1/2 tablespoons dressing;
arrange on a serving platter. Al-
ternate orange, papaya, and kiwi
slices over greens. Drizzle with
remaining dressing. Sprinkle with
pomegranate seeds.
Serves 6.
Chicken with Walnuts
And. Pomegranate
2-3/4 pound fryer chicken
2 cups walnuts, finely
chopped
3 tablespoons shortening
3-1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon poultry season-
ing
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pepper


2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 cup fresh pomegranate juice
3 teaspoons butter
2 teaspoons tomato sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
Prepare chicken for frying. Sau-
t6 chicken with poultry seasoning
in shortening until light brown,
set aside. In a large pot saut6 the
onion in 3 teaspoon butter until
golden brown. Add tomato sauce
and saut6 for a few minutes. Add
walnuts to the onions and saut6
over medium heat about 5 min-
utes, stirring constantly. Add wa-
ter, remaining seasonings, lemon
juice, and pomegranate syrup.
Cover and let cook on low about
35 minutes. Taste the sauce and
add sugar if needed. Arrange
browned chicken pieces in the
sauce cover and let simmer 20-25
minutes. Serve over white rice.
Serves 6.

It's Girl Scout
Cookie Time
Remember, all things in mod-
eration. Remind yourself of the
importance of moderation when
tempted with the delicious annual
treat of Girl Scout cookies. And re-
member to read the labels. When
you consider the calorie content
and carbohydrates per serving,
make sure you know how many
cookies are considered a "serv-
ing." Also, remember that these
cookies freeze well, so you don't
have to eat the whole box "before
it gets stale."
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise rou-
tine, consult your doctor.
This is particularly important
if you are on any prescription
medications. Some drugs in-
teract badly with foods that
would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

graduation recognition luncheon at HRMC.

be prepared to take their RN State Board tests. Sue Seeley, (pictured at far left) the Chief
Nursing Officer at Hendry Regional Medical Center and David McClusky, HRMC's Clinical
Education Assistant, helped to coordinate the program.

Glades Central plans to improve school rating


Incentives for
students who excel
in this year's
FCAT exams

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE It is safe to
say that the State did not look
favorably on Glades Central High
School at the conclusion of the
2006-2007school year.
When the school grade came
out last June, it was revealed that
the community high school had
received an 'F' rating.
With that rating, the 2007-2008
school year ultimately came to be
a very pivotal one for the school
and its future.
Some believe that it's
important to recognize an issue.
But what's even more prevalent
is how an entity could recover
from its perceived negative image


and what it has learned from the
experience.
The school rating had much
to do with how the students
performed on their FCAT exams
last year in reading, writing, math,
and science. To say the least, not
many did well on their exams.
So Dr. Camille Coleman, the
high school's principal, simply
came up with a bold goal for
Glades Central to reach: Improve
from an 'F' to a 'C' rating when
the school grade comes out this
June.
To some, it may sound too
optimistic. But when a school
like Glades Central has never
received higher than a 'D' rating,
according to Dr. Coleman, and
a state takeover possible if the
school grade doesn't improve, it
makes a lot of sense.
"We all have to come together
to make sure that our school
succeeds, thereby ensuring
that our children succeed," Dr.


Coleman said, emphatically.
"When your children succeed,
that will create a powerful
generation."
For a school that has not met
adequate yearly progress (AYP)
for the last five years, according to
Dr. Coleman, she is really stressing
to her teachers and students the
importance of doing well on this
year's FCAT exams.
For the students, all
components of the FCAT must
be passed in order to graduate
from high school, according to
Dr. Coleman.
Dr. Coleman implied that there
are some sound plans in place
to ensure the school's success
on this year's FCAT exams, one
for the teachers and one for the
students.
The strategy for the teachers
is that, according to the principal,
leaning team meetings are
now put into place to foster
professional development among


the entire staff.
"The meetings are designed to
allow teachers and opportunity
to plan and share lessons with
each other," Dr. Coleman said.
"It creates our academic focus
calendar, which serves as an
outline for what teachers will
teach daily."
Each subject department
meets once a week to discuss
plans.
Regarding the students, there
are a variety of incentives in place
should they do well on the all-
important FCAT exams. For the
FCAT writing portion, there are
tutorials available every Saturday
from 9 a.m. until noon.
If anyone attends the Jan. 26,
Feb. 2 and Feb. 9 tutorials they
must attend all three sessions
- students will earn a trip to the
movies and a dinner following
that.
Parents are encouraged to
make sure that their children take


advantage of this opportunity; the
FCAT writing component will take
place beginning on Feb. 12.
On the day before the writing
exam, a mandatory writing
workshop for all sophomores will
convene.
For the Feb. 12 exam date, a
full breakfast will be available at
the gymnasium at 6:45 a.m., free
of charge.
A goal for the school is that 95
percent of the 10th grade students
score a four or better on the FCAT
writing exam; a six is the highest
score possible.
"We have to encourage our
children to do their personal best
because there are people out
there who think they can't do it,"
Dr. Coleman said. "But we know
they can."
Other incentives include a free
admission to the senior prom and
trip for those that pass the FCAT
math component that incentive
is available to juniors and seniors.


Also, for the science portion taken
by the 11"' grade students, if they
pass the exam with a three at the
minimum, they will be eligible
to take place in a drawing for
such items as a 20" flat screen
television, an MP3 player and a
field trip, among others.
One thing to note is that in
addition to passing the exams,
to be eligible, students must pass
their eighth period class and attend
at least three tutorial sessions
prior to the FCAT testing.
The FCAT reading, math and
science components begin on
March 12 and end on March 25.
"Every parent wants their kid
to graduate from high school,"
Dr. Coleman said. "The kids and
their parents have to decide that
passing the FCAT is important.
The kids can do it. They really
can."

INI/Naji Tobias
Focused
In a Jan. 10 rivalry basketball game between the Glades
Central Raiders and the Pahokee Blue Devils, senior point
guard Antavious Wilson attempts and makes this free throw
in the second half. Though he showed tenacity and heart in
this contest, it was not nearly enough as Glades Central won,
65-49. As of Jan. 14, Glades Central has an 8-5 record, while
Pahokee has a 7-8 record.


INI/Naji Tobias
Bank shot
Glades Central Raiders senior guard/forward Richard John-
son attempts a lay-up shot in the second half of their game
against the Clewiston Tigers. Richard actually makes the
bucket even though he was well-covered by a Tigers defend-
er in the Jan. 12 contest.


INI/Naji Tobias
Agent 'zero'
Glades Central senior forward Eddie Poole, wearing '0', led
the Raiders with 12 points and 31 rebounds in a convincing
65-49 win over the Pihokee Blue Devils on Jan. 10. Two days
later against the Clewiston Tigers, he was dominant through-
out the game in a 67-36 win Glades Central's second win
over Clewiston. Eddie is currently one of Palm Beach Coun-
ty's leading rebounders.


INI/Naji Tobias
Play of the game
In the Jan. 12 contest between the Glades Central Raiders
and the Clewiston Tigers, the play of the game arguably
- was the uncontested two-hand dunk made by sophomore
center Clive Wolford in a 67-36 Raiders win to move them to
8-5 as of Jan. 14.


INI/Naji Tobias
Inbounds pass
Clewiston Tigers junior guard Nicholas Gutshall makes an in-
bounds pass in the second half, while Glades Central Raiders
senior guard James Ingram applies the pressure on him to
attempt a steal. No steal for James, but great defense overall
contributed heavily to a 67-36 Raiders dismantling over the
Tigers in the Jan. 12 contest.

Decision
Continued From Page 1
The role and state
of Lake Okeechobee
The water on Lake
Okeechobee was clean and
clear. The fishery and wildlife
that roamed the lake was alive
and well. That's how Ms. Martin
remembered her first-ever boat
ride on the lake, way back in
1972.
"Lake Okeechobee was pictur-
esque back then," she remembers
vividly. "It was way better than the
Great Lakes. It was the prettiest
lake I saw in my life."
The imagery of how Ms. Martin
saw Lake Okeechobee back then
is in stark contrast to what it looks
like now, according to her. When
asked about the current state of
Lake Okeechobee, her happiness
quickly turns to frustration.
"Lake Okeechobee is dying,"
Ms. Martin said. "We want com-
bined efforts from all agencies to
help clean up the lake. My plea as
a businessperson and lover of the
lake is to make a forum that really
works. Let's make something
happen."
There are a variety of factors
that have contributed to the lake's
declining condition. For. starters,'
the lake levels are currently much-
lower-than normal for the month
of January.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement has even predicted that
lake levels could be at below
eight feet, which would be a new
record low.
Also, years of drainage placed
tons of sediments in the lake,
which ended up settling on the
lake bottom. As a result of the
multiple hurricanes of 2004 and
2005, some of this sediment
flowed into the Caloosahatchee
River to the west and the St. Lucie
Canal to the east.
What was even more damag-
ing is that the nutrient-rich fresh-
water upset the ecological bal-
ance in the nearby estuaries.


Saint- Leo Head Softball
Coach Christi Wade announced
the signing 'of Glades Day
School's Amber Martyn during
the NCAAs early signing period.
+ Afiber will join the Lions as an
outfielder. Last year Amber bat-
ted .375 with 10 doubles and
seven triples.
Amber has been named three
times to the Palm Beach Post
Small School All Star team and
to the Sun Sentinel All County
team.
She has been selected twice
to the All State Team in softball.


"To me, dealing with what's in
Lake Okeechobee is a huge chal-
lenge for everyone," said Carol
Wehle, the executive director of
the water management district.
"Every time we get a hurricane,
the muck stirs up the lake, which
is not a good thing."
Adding even more to the lake
issues, the fishery and wildlife
were adversely affected by all of
this. Ultimately, the marinas, the
fisheries and the tourism industry
lost untold amounts of business
and customers.
It left everyone involved in a
frustrated state, prompting the
ensuing outrage from Ms. Martin.
"The lake's been smoking
for over 25 years and now it's on
fire," Ms. Martin said. "If we lose
this lake, it would be the biggest
embarrassment to the state and
the biggest loss of natural resourc-
es in our country."
Lake "O"effect on the
agriculture industry
Malcolm 'Bubba' Wade Jr., the
senior vice president of U.S. Sugar
Corporation, has been very con-
cerned about the current state of
Lake. Okeechobee. The low lake
levels and the drought have had
an adverse effect on agriculture in
the region, prompting the water
district to place tight restrictions
on water use.
Water supply is crucial to the
proper cultivation and growth
of many crops. In the Lake
Okeechobee region, growers
plant such products as corn, cab-
bage, tomatoes, peas, cabbage,
oranges, and of course, sugar-
cane.
Also, the beef and dairy cattle
raised on many ranches depend
on water to survive. That's how
ranchers are able to make a living
and provide the country with the
produce and dairy products con-
sumers buy.
Agriculture is a business that
plays a huge role in the econom-
ics- in the region. Unfortunately,
with the low water supply, it is, to
say the least, not the best of times

now.
"All of the Ag,users have been
on tight restrictions for 14 months
now," Mr. Wade said. "With the
restrictions, we reduced crop pro-
duction and have had crop loss-
es. If the drought continues this
spring, we could have massive
crop failures. In essence, our local
economy could be negatively
impacted by billions of dollars."
Charles Bronspn, a commis-
sioner of the Florida Department
of Agriculture, estimated that if
the drought predictions hold true,
the losses could run to about $1.1
billion for 2008.
The importance of
employment and
education
Pahokee Mayor J.P. Sasser,
who took part in a panel discus-
sion regarding the economics of
the region, read an eye-popping
statistic that seemed to stun some
attendees: Of the residents in
the communities of Belle Glade,
Pahokee, South Bay and Canal
Point, only 18 percent of them
were employed in agriculture.
The mayor also read that about
73 percent of the Glades area resi-
dents are employed in either gov-
ernment or education.
Mayor Sasser stressed the
importance of funding to improve
the education and workforce of
the region.
"We're fighting for survival
right now," Mayor Sasser said.
Lynn Topel, the executive
director of Florida's heartland
Rural Economic Development
Initiative (FREDHI), told the audi-
ence that the organization's cov-
erage area -- which include the
six counties of Desoto, Glades,
Hardee, Highlands, Hendry and
Okeechobee plus the communi-
ties of Belle Glade, Immokalee,
Pahokee and South Bay is one of
three rural areas in the state that is
of economic critical concern.
The coverage area, according
to Ms. Topel, was of great concern
to Jeb Bush, the state's past gov-


ernor.
The organization's primary
function is to provide special fund-
ing assistance to areas that are in
great need of economic develop-
ment and expansion.
FHREDI works closely with
such companies as Enterprise
Florida and Workforce Florida,
Inc. to better assist all of the rural
communities in the coverage
area.
Ms. Topel feels that there isn't
enough attention being paid to
education in the area.
"I think the forum is a great
beginning, but my concern is that
we're focusing only on agricul-
ture and tourism," Ms. Topel said.
"Those will not be the top eco-
nomic drivers for a strong econo-
my because they pay low wages,"
Ms. Topel pointed out, for
example, the average income
for a Glades County resident is
approximately $19,000 a year.
Agriculture and tourism are very
important industries to the impov-
erished county.
"When someone is making
eight dollars an hour in tourism or
in agriculture, it is hard for them
to buy groceries, keep up with
gas and pay rent," Ms. Topel said.
"We need to be focused on creat-
ing high standards for education
and assistance to the rural area to
pay for the education. It can't be
on a population movement."
According to FHREDI statistics,
the entire population in the cov-
erage area is just under 230,000
people.
Ms. Topel ultimately feels that
the education system ultimate-
ly needs equal funding to the
urbanized areas in the state. She
believes if that happened, then
the education system would be
better.
"Unfortunately, in order for the
average citizen to have job and
educational opportunities, they
have to leave the area," Ms. Topel
said, disappointingly.

address are only allowed to use
irrigation on Mondays. Those
with even-numbered addresses
are allowed only to water their
lawns on Thursdays; according to
the water district.
For residents who live on less
than five acres of land, there is
a choice of a four-hour window
in which irrigation is available: 4
p.m. to 8 a.m. or 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
For residents who have more
than five acres, an eight hour win-
dow is available: either from mid-
night to 8 a.m. or 4 p.m. to 11:59
p.m.
There are no restrictions on
pressure or vehicle washing,
though water district officials
encourage residents to use a hose
with an automatic shut-off nozzle.
Agriculture users, nurser-
ies, recreational areas and golf
courses are still subjected to a 45
percent reduction of water use.
The water district will be strictly
enforcing the policy for all large
area water users.


"The only way the water sys-
tem will recover is by rainfall,"
Mr. Rapach said. "So, for the time
being, everyone needs to adhere
to these restrictions."
Jesus Rodriguez, the water
district's public relations spokes-
person, justified the reasoning for
the tighter restrictions, adding that
if the conditions worsen quickly;
there may even be a possibility
that a no-irrigation policy could
go into effect.
But with the restrictions cur-
rently in place, Mr. Rodriguez said
that it is highly unlikely that mea-
sure will be taken.
From Mr. Rodriguez's per-
spective, the restrictions are just
another means of stretching and
protecting the water supply tied to
Lake Okeechobee.
"The water restrictions should
be enough to hold the area to,
get through the dry season," Mr:
Rodriguez said.
