GC basketball wins district title


Class-4A regional
plays begins tonight
against Cocoa,

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE -- It has been
nothing short of an amaz-
ing season thus far for Edwin
James, the Glades Central Raid-
ers boys' basketball coach.
On Saturday night, Feb. 9,
the first-year head coach has
led the Raiders to capturing the
District 14-4A championship


Getting


after a o..in. i ni, 67-43 victory
over Santaluces.
The district tournament was
played at Okeechobee High
School. The Raiders defeated
Jensen Beach in the Feb. 5
quarterfinal matchup, 49-37,
while moving on to defeat host
Okeechobee in the Feb. 8 semi-
final game, 62-41.
"Well, I feel real good about
us winning the district cham-
pionship," Coach James said.
"The kids bought in what I
wanted to do with them. They
wanted to play and they took
care of business."
It helps a lot when Raiders


senior forward Eddie Poole Jr.
has been consistently averaging
over 16 points and 22 rebounds
a game, while fellow senior De-
andre Holley, the team's start-
ing point guard, averages over
10 assists per game.
The Raiders can boast in the
fact that they have Palm Beach
County's top rebounding ma-
chine in Eddie and the county's
passing leader in Deandre,
Carrying a 17-7 into the
Class 4A state tournament, the
Raiders have a lot of firepower
in the likes of players like soph-
omore Antwon Chisolm, who
could score at will and draw

double teams, which opens up
the pass for other key players.
Sophomore center dive Wol-
ford also is a force to be reck-
oned with, as he can impose
his will on opposing defenses
with his tenacity near the bas-
ket.
Junior guard Rantavious
Wooten is also a dangerous
force, as the sharp shooter can
change the game at any point,
especially when it comes to
three-point shooting.
The rest of the team Na-
thaniel Perdue, James Ingram,
Sandy Kendall, Richard John-
son, Carlton Richardson, Wes-


ley Barnett and Rashad Derico
- has contributed heavily to the
team's success thus far, as they
showed throughout the season
how talented they actually are.
"We, as coaches, have to put
the plans in place and it's up
to the kids to execute," Coach
James said. "It's not about me,
but it's about them. It's a col-
laborative effort between all
of the players and they have
all contributed a great deal to
what we're trying to do."
Coach James makes it very
clear as to what Glades Cen-

SOUTH BAY On Wednes-
day, Feb. 6, smoke enveloped
Rosenwald Elementary School,
sending five students to Glades
General Hospital for observa-
tions.
According to Michael Arena,
the district battalion chief for the
Palm Beach County Fire Res-
cue, a sugar cane field, owned
by U.S. Sugar Corporation, was
burning next to the elementary
school at 9:52 a.m.

SOUTH BAY For eight of
the Fortin Family Development
Center employees, a life lesson
was learned courtesy of the
Palm Beach County Fire Res-
cue.
On Feb. 5, the employees
received a 90-minute training
session on fire safety. The pur-
pose of the once-a-year train-


ing was to provide education
and accreditation for the center
and its employees, according to
Matilda Edwards, the center's
director.
"We want to be prepared in-
dividually because safety is one
of the main courses for taking
care of our children," Ms. Ed-

Knee-linked on National


Two Glades Central
football players
persevere

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Persever-
ance through tough circum-
stances makes an individual
appreciate life more, some be-
lieve.
For two Glades Central Raid-
ers football players, the applica-
tion certainly rings true.
Xavier McKenzie and Eddie
Poole, Jr. are two of four Glades
Central seniors who signed let-
ters of intent on Feb. 6, also
known as National Signing Day.


The others were seniors Travis
Benjamin and Jarien Moreland.
Xavier accepted a full schol-
arship to Stillman. College in
Tuscaloosa, Ala., while Eddie
committed to Rutgers Univer-
sity.
Xavier said that he chose
Stillman over Alcorn State Uni-
versity and Louisiana-Lafayette
because it was where his heart
was at.
Eddie chose Rutgers over
West Virginia University be-
cause of three things: those two
colleges were the only ones he
was considering, the coaching
staff at West Virginia changed
-- the departure of former head
coach Rich Rodriguez impacted
Eddie's decision and he felt


trained properly."
The session, conducted by
Jeff Heinz, the fire rescue's fire
safety specialist, entailed dem-
onstrations of how to put a fire
out by the proper use of a fire
extinguisher.
The fire rescue provided
the Fortin Center employees a
chance to learn a drill entitled
'PASS' (Pull, Aim, Squeeze and
See Fire Page 20


The smoke problem was
believed to have occurred due
to an unexpected wind shift
toward the school, fire rescue
officials said.
The five students that were
transported to the nearby hos-
pital suffered from respiratory
ailments, while a host of other
students and staff affected by
the smoke were treated on the
scene, according to the district
battalion chief.
"I think it was a rare inci-
dent," said Don DeLucia, the
fire rescue's captain'and public
information officer. "It was a +
freak condition. That's not what
happens out in the Glades."

Sugarcane Golf wins

bid for golf course


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE After care-
ful deliberations on which firm
would be awarded the opera-
tion of the Belle Glade Munici-
pal Golf Course, the choice was
clear.
During a special meeting on
Jan. 28 at the Belle Glade City
Hall chambers, the city has
selected the Sugarcane Golf
Group as its primary manager
of the facility.
The vote was motioned
by Commissioner Ray Torres
Sanchez via telephone and
seconded by Commissioner


Shelly Miller. Mayor Donald D.
Garrett made the deciding vote
in favor of the selection, with
Vice-Mayor Mary S. Kendall
and Commissioner Gwendolyn
Asia-Holley dissenting.
Along with the voting of
the selection was the proposal
to form a golf course advisory
committee.
The idea was a substitute
motion placed by Commission-
er Sanchez and seconded by
Commissioner Miller. It would
result in a consensus vote.
On Jan. 9, the city commis-

Eddie finished his senior

Lake Okeechobee drops below 10 feet


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
How low will Lake Okeechobee
go?
On Monday, Feb. 11, the lake
level fell to 9.99 feet above sea
level. If predicted trends continue,
by early summer the lake will drop
lower than it ever has before. The
current lake level is more than four
feet below the average for this time
of year. This figure is even more
ominous when you realize that
last year it was mid-April before the
lake fell below 10 feet.'At that time
the lake continued the downward
plunge until it reached a record low
of 8.82 on July 2, 2007.
It appears that this year the lake
could drop to an even lower level at
an earlier date.
Rainfall statistics for.November
through January show an aver-
age of 6.68 inches across the 16
southern Florida counties served
by South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD): From No-
vember, 2007 through January of
this year the area wide average was
2.95 inches, which is 44 percent
of normal rainfall. The rainfall for
Okeechobee followed that trend.
According to Okeechobee County
Airport Director Vernon Gray, a to-
tal of 2.6 inches of rain fell between
November 2007 and January 2008.
The average for Okeechobee for

Record low levels
Lake Okeechobee's water level may reach another record
low by the end of the "dry" season.
Big 0: Water shortage critical.


that period of time is 6.25.
While some areas on the east
coast have received substantial
amounts of rainfall, that water had
to be released to tide due to lack
of storage or pumping facilities
and this rainfall did not help Lake
Okeechobee or the Everglades.
The National Oceanic and At-


mospheric Administration predict
that rainfall will continue below
normal for the area through the
end of April.
Charles Shinn, assistant director
for government and community
affairs for the Florida Farm Bureau
stated in his Feb. 8 newsletter that
models predict lake levels to drop


between 7 feet and 8.3 feet by June
1. If the lake drops to 7 feet that
means that 40 percent of the lake
surface area will be dry ground.
It will take more than a nor-
mal amount of rainfall for this
year to correct the problem. If the
area around and north of the lake
should receive a normal amount
of rainfall, the lake would only rise
two or three feet, still leaving a se-
vere water shortage.
However, abundant rainfall
north of the lake could also cause
problems for the water control
structures on the Kissimmee River
and other bodies of water flowing
into the lake. Extreme differences
in water levels on the upstream and
downstream sides of the structures
could cause excessive velocity of
the water. This velocity could scour
holes in the bottom and undermine
the structures. If this happens to an
upstream structure, it could cause
a domino effect on downstream
structures.
Charles Home, SFWMD's depu-
ty executive director of operations
and maintenance, has proposed
several solutions to the problem
including using downstream tem-
porary weirs and putting additional
rock riprap on the downstream
side of the structures.

Quilt show coming


Saturday, Feb. 16


LAKEPORT That quaint Amer-
ican craft called quilting is alive
and thriving at North Lake Estates
in Lakeport. The quilters of North
Lake are planning their fourth quilt
show this February.
The NLE Quilters have been
active since the club's inception in
February, 2002.
The group has had from 13 to
25 ladies, many of whom make the
trek to Florida each winter. While
husbands spend their spare time
fishing or golfing, the wives and
others gather to share their love of
the craft.
. Skills range from rank amateur
(even "I've never quilted before"
types) to accomplished artisans
with decades of experience be-
hind them. But enthusiasm is
equally shared by all. At any given
time, one quilt is in a frame being
hand-quilted, quilting-bee fashion,
another is in a frame being basted,
and any number of quilt tops are
being pieced for later quilting.
This year's Quilt Show will be
held Saturday, Feb. 16, at the North
Lake Estates Clubhouse. The doors
will open at 9 a.m. Sandy Benning-
ton spearheads this project.
"We are hoping to show from 75


to 100 quilt projects this year. While
most of the quilts will be products
of our group's members, we have
invited others from the area to dis-
play their quilts, too," she said.
Besides the expected bed quilts,
other quilted items will be shown.
Past shows have displayed wall
hangings, table runners, clothing,
purses and many other items.
The highlight of the show is al-
ways the raffling of a hand-quilted
bed quilt. This year's offering is a
dazzling burgundy, pink and green
Star Quilt. It is queen/king sized. '
Along with showing quilts and
quilted projects, individuals will be
offering quilted and handcrafted
items for sale. Club member Pat
Gaver has been working hard on
a variety of carry-alls, microwave
potato holders and Bingo cush-
ions. Janet Mitchell is embroidering
dish towels and pot holders. Others
have produced table runners, purs-
es, placemats and pillows.
Everyone is invited to attend the
quilt show, Feb. 16. Times are from
9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Door prizes will
be awarded every hour on the hour.
The raffle quilt will be given at the
end of the show winner doesn't

Feb. 22, 23, and 24, LaBelle's
famous one-of-a-kind Swamp
Cabbage Festival will be in high
gear.
And this year, the festival will
be 42 years old.
Festivities will begin on Fri-
day, Feb. 22 with the Swamp
Cabbage Rodeo, then the en-
tire festival will come into full
bloom on Saturday, followed by
the Sunday afternoon Rodeo.
Swamp Cabbage Festival's
Grand Marshall for 2008 is Phil
Pelletier, who will lead the pa-
rade starting at 10 a.m. on Main
Street this year. The parade
will be the same length as it
has been before the route was
changed, starting at the Euclid
Avenue fire station and ending
at First Baptist Church. The line
up will be south of Winn Dixie.
The motorcycle rally will start
at the Barron Library grounds
where some of their vendors
will be located. The NASCAR
lawn mower racing will have
a tract on Cowboy Way next
to the airport. Racing will start
after the parade on Saturday at
2 p.m.
The 5-K run will start at 8
a.m. on Saturday morning at

bbage Festival set for Feb. 22-24

grounds on Route 29 with par-
ticipants. ,
Saturday there will be always
exciting bull-riding at the rodeo
grounds and again Sunday af-

lowing the conclusion of the
tournament. Participants will
put in at the Hendry County
Boat Ramp on Highway 78,
west of the bridge.
All events of the festival will
have their own awards.
As always a special feature
of Swamp cabbage is the nam-
ing of the family of the year.
This year's honor is bestowed
upon the survivors of the Jim-
my Pendry Family.
Jimmy and Louise had six
children, five of which survive,
including Donald, Mattiele-
na, James, Helen and Marva.
Many years ago, Jimmy Pendry
worked with the WPA in build-
ing State Road 80 through La-
Belle. He was a volunteer fire
chief, and the family raised,
chickens and delivered fresh


eggs to the B&B Market (now
the U-Save) as well as to the La-
Belle Trading Post.
This year, the bridge will stay
open and will not close for the
parade. This is due to new rul-
ings of FDOT (Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation).
For the duration of the pa-
rade, beginning at 9:30 a.m.,
traffic will be closed on Route
80 at Cowboy Way, which will
be the alternate route for Route
80 for the duration of the pa-
rade.
Traffic on Route 29 will flow
as usual. If anyone has .any
questions about these chang-
es, please call the Chamber of
Commerce which has all the
answers. The number is (863)-
675-0125'

Those were the sounds that filled First United Methodist
Church parking lot as Big Lake Cruisers came cruising
in to share with our scout's the history of how cars have
advanced over the last several decades. The month of
January's theme was Cub Scout Car Show; the boys were
in total amazement, as they were able to sit in the cars
and pretend to drive them, at their very own private car
show. We would like to thank Big Lake Cruisers members
for taking the time to make a difference in a scout's life. In
addition, we would like.to thank Home Depot who donated
truck kits for the boys to build and race. All boys in first
through fifth grades are welcomed to join us at First United
Methodist Church at 6 p.m. on Thursdays. Cub Scout Pack
667 is where character counts and adventure begins.

I know this is old news but I
just found out that the city man-
ager of Pahokee, Mrs. Latimore,
was terminated. I no longer live
in Florida so it took a while for the
news to reach me. I just wanted
to say how happy I am that Mrs.
Latimore was terminated. In my
opinion that woman was evil. She
made working conditions at the
city hall a nightmare! She didn't
even want us to talk to each other.
How can you conduct business
without talking about it? One day
one of the commissioners came
in and asked, "What is wrong
with everyone? It is as silent as a
tomb in here". I worked for the
city 19 years and the whole time
she was there it was awful.
A couple of years ago my iden-
tity was stolen by Mrs. Latimore's
secretary, Antunette Whitaker.
Antunette wanted to buy a com-
puter on the city's dell account
and pay the city back. She asked
me about this and I told her she
would have to get Mrs. Latimore's
approval. I also mentioned that I
had my own personal dell ac-
count. During this same conver-
sation Antunette also asked me
some personal questions, like
how long I had lived in Pahokee
and who my parents Were. Which
I told her I thought she was just
being friendly. A couple of weeks
later I asked Antunette if she had
ever talked to Mrs. Latimore about
getting a computer and she said
she had figured out another way
to get one. Well a month or two
later I found out what the other
way was. Antunette had charged
a computer to my personal dell
account. I didn't know what. to
do when I found out. I talked

to a deputy and he didn't seem
very interested in doing anything
about it, I figured it was probably
because she was Mrs. LatimOre's
secretary. When I talked to Antu-
nette about it, she said dell had
made a mistake. Right! She gave
me a personal check for the com-
puter and asked me to hold the
check for about two weeks. I did
get the money but that did not
excuse what she did. I didn't say
anything to Mrs. Latimore about'
the incident because I was wor-
ried that I might get fired, though
I was the one that had been
wronged. Even though I didn't tell
Mrs. Latimore about the incident
she did know about it. I was told
Mrs. Latimore loaned Antunette
the money to cover the check.
Antunette had plenty of opportu-
nity to get someone's personal in-
formation she was in the human
resources office many times talk-
ing to the assistant to the human
resources manager. There were
many times Antunette would be
in the human resources office
while the H.R. manager was gone
to lunch or somewhere else. She
and the assistant would have the
door closed. So information was..
readily available to her. Several
weeks after all this happened Mrs.
Latimore called Antunette and I to
her office to work things'out, she
said we needed to get along since
we had to work together. What a
joke! Antunette should have been
fired and arrested for what she
did to me!
Sincerely,
Rita Carter


Team 'Glades General'


races for the cure


WEST PALM BEACH -
- Boy Scout Troop 622
and Good Shepherd
School's track members volun-
teer to represent Glades Gen-
eral Hospital for the Komen
foundation's 'race for the cure'
5k run held on Flagler drive
on Saturday, Jan. 19. Anthony
Brewer, 16, from Pahokee, was
one of the first to cross the fin-
ish line 22.25 minutes; followed
by Jonathan Jones, 15, from
Canal Point, 33:52 minutes.
His younger brother, Timothy
Jones, 12, of Canal Point, one
of the youngest official runners,
took off like a bolt; but started
to get leg cramps an began to
drop behind. Timothy stays
sandwiched between his older
brother in front of him and fel-
low scout, Nick Donahue, 15,
Loxahatchee, behind him. Nick
known for his brawn, motions
for Jonathan to go on ahead.
Footstep per footstep Nick stays
behind Timothy's shadow.
"Mr. Buck"-George "Buck"
Jones, Assistant Scoutmaster
has always instilled the Marine
motto: "you start a mission to-


gether, you finish together."
Nick had Timothy's back lit-
erally. "If he stumbled, I'd steady
him. If- he fell, I'd shield him.
And if he just couldn't go any-
more; then I was going to throw
him over my shoulder and carry
him." We were going to com-
plete our mission," Donahue
said.
Timothy Jones crossed the
finish line in 36:05 minutes with
Nick Donahue coming in 36:06
minutes.
Juan Antonio Villanueva,
16, South Bay, had never ran in
a "real" race and managed to
place in the top 800 runners in
45:59 minutes.

April Stafirn, Scoutmaster for
622 and CT Tech for GGH; Gloria
Kornegay, EYS Services for GGH;

Super Wednesday: National Signing Day '08


INI/Naji Tobias

Headed for the 'U'
At Pahokee High School on Wednesday, Feb. 6, National
Signing Day, the family of University of Miami-bound Micanor
Regis came to the signing ceremony to celebrate the momen-
tous occasion. Accompanying Micanor are his aunt, Earthal-
ene Boldin, his cousin and younger brother; fellow teammates
on the state championship winning Pahokee Blue Devils, Ar-
tis Ford and Tommy Regis; his mother, Tommycina Regis and
Talissia Johnson, his girlfriend. The family may very well be
celebrating this moment with a future NFL star, who many
believe has a very legitimate chance to get there.

Pahokee Signing Day
Here at the signing table are Jatavious Miller, Artis Evans,
Jr., Anthony Sheppard, Jr. and Micanor Regis. The four Class
2B All-State football recruits signed commitments on Feb. 6,
to West Virginia University, Alcorn State University, Western
Kentucky University and the University of Miami, respectively.
Notable players that have yet to sign with a college but will do
so at a later time, according to head coach, Blaze Thompson,
are Martavious Odoms, Antavious Wilson, Marcus Washing-
ton and Chris Dent.


INI/Naji Tobias

Big decision
Glades Central offensive lineman Xavier McKenzie, who ini-
tially wasn't sure if he was going to get any scholarship offers
before National Signing Day, told the audience that his heart
led him to sign with Stillman College, a Division II School in
Tuscaloosa, Ala. It was a very emotional day for Xavier, espe-
cially considering the fact that at one point, he was consid-
ered one of the nation's top college recruits. But in the end,
Xavier did not allow a rash of injuries to stop him from taking
one step closer to his ultimate dream: playing in the NFL. His
two biggest supporters are, of course, his mother, Barbara
James and his stepfather, Melvin James.

INI/Naji Tobias

Moving on
Western Kentucky University may have been the only scholar-
ship offer for Anthony Sheppard, but he certainly took it and
plans to make the most of his college opportunities and turn
.his doubters into believers once he gets to play quarterback
there. Anthony's family is very happy that he'll be moving on


Decisions, decisions
It came down to Florida Atlantic University and West Virginia
University, but Jatavious Miller is happy that his family sup-
ports the decision to move onto West Virginia, a Big East
school which is currently one of the best college football
teams in the country. Here with Jatavious are his uncle, Zeran
Engram, his mother, Lynora Fulmore and his stepmother, for-
mer Pahokee athletic director Malissa McAuley.


INI/Naji Tobias

Bright future ahead
Artis Evans, Jr. made his decision to play defensive end at
Alcorn State University. Now, he's hoping to make a huge im-
pact there and have a chance to make it to the NFL. Backing
up his choice are his father, Artis Evans, Sr. and his uncle,
Blue Devils defensive coordinator Rick Lammons.

Stars at Glades Central
There were four seniors on the Glades Central football team who signed letters of intent to
play college football. They were all smiles as their fellow schoolmates, teachers and families
celebrated with them. Jarien Moreland committed to the University of Central Florida, while
Travis Benjamin, Eddie Poole and Xavier McKenzie are headed for the University of Miami,
Rutgers University.and Stillman College, respectively. The celebration was held at the audi-
torium on Feb. 6 National Signing Day.


INI/Naji Tobias

All about the Benjamin
Travis Benjamin brought five of his closest family members
to the Feb. 6, National Signing Day event at Glades Central
High School. Celebrating with the University of Miami-bound
wide receiver are Travis' grandmother, Jacqueline Stewart;
his aunt, Deborah Stewart; his mother, Cynthia Stewart, who
is holding his daughter, Promyse and his cousin, Javian Bry-
ant.


At the National Signing Day event, held on Feb. 6, maybe the best part of the festivities
was when the father-son duos of Anthony Sheppard Sr. and Jr., Don Thompson and Blaze
Thompson debated on which state championship team was better. Something that has never
happened before in the Glades area, Don Thompson coached the 1989 state championship
team, which featured Anthony Sheppard, Sr., the team's quarterback and 18 years later, the
sons, head coach Blaze Thompson and quarterback Anthony Sheppard, Jr., also won a state
championship together. That's nothing short of amazing.


INI/Naji Tobias

At the signing
In the auditorium at Pahokee High School, four Blue Deviis
signed letters of intent to play college football. In the front
are college football recruits Jatavious Miller, who signed with
West Virginia University, Artis Evans, an Alcorn State Univer-
sity commit, Anthony Sheppard, who will go on to Western
Kentucky University and Micanor Regis, a highly touted de-
fensive tackle who will be representing the 'U' (University
of Miami). Standing in the rear are Lynora Fulmore, Malissa
McAuley, Artis Ford, Sr., Anthony Sheppard, Sr., Terrina Sha-
hid, Shack Shahid, Tommycina Regis and Earthalene Boldin.
The event was held on Feb. 6.


INI/Naji Tobias

Heading north
Eddie Poole, Jr., the Rutgers-bound wide receiver, could not
be any happier in his life so far, as he finally got to show every-
one he was heading north to the New Jersey school. Eddie's
parents, Janice Jarrell and Eddie Poole, Sr., showed that they
are ecstatic he made a decision that he's very comfortable
with. National Signing Day was on Feb. 6. For more National
Signing Day photos, please visit http://photos.newszap.com.

NI/Naji Tobias

Georgia bound
A huge surprise occurred at Clewiston High School during
National Signing Day on Feb. 6. It was originally thought
that two Tigers senior football players would sign let-
ters of intent. No one was able to figure out who those
two were because it only turned to be one. It wasn't what
anybody would've thought, especially not after it was re-
vealed that Tigers offensive lineman Chris Bell would sign
with Georgia Military College, a junior college located in
Milledgeville, Ga.
For someone who, just a few months ago, didn't think he
would play college football, this turned out to be a great
move. Chris said that he decided to go this route because
even though basketball is his favorite sport, he knew that
he would've had to give it up after high school. What's re-
ally amazing is that this college just recently looked at a
highlight tape of the Clewiston-Bishop Verot playoff game
and came away very impressed, especially considering
that the college was originally looking for someone else.

Snorts News in Brief


-U----- mtw' - .


Clewiston racer t
akes two wins
Hendry County Speedway held
the Mini Sprint Winter Nationals
on Feb. 7-9. There was a turnout
of drivers from all over the coun-
try on hand in three divisions of
sprints. On Thursday night, Jim
Young from Johnstown, Pa., filled
in as a substitute driver in the #15
and took the feature win for the
270 class. Lex Burritt from Red-
ding Conn., took the win in the
750 class. Derek Campbell from
Flat Rock, Ill. took the win in the
1200 class.
Friday Mother Nature was the
first one on the track. Rain caused
a delay in the start, of the event.
Track officials Larry Thacker and
Eddie Campbell worked the track
into some of the best conditions
I have ever seen at the track. The
Mini Sprints went out first and the
track developed into a smooth
tacky surface. Sean McAndrew
from Apollo, Pa., was back behind
the wheel of the # 15 and took the
car to another win. Brock Zearfoss
from Jonestown, Pa., won the 750
class.
Hud Horton from German-
town, Ohio, took the win in the
1200 class.
The Street Stocks took the track
after the sprints. Jesse Brown of


Clewiston took the win. Chase
Goodson came out on top of the
Mini Stock Division. Brian Mor-
gan had the car to beat in the
Pure Stock Division. The Limited
Late Models were shown the way
around the track by Tim Powers.
Speedway officials scrambled
quickly on Saturday night, moving
the show along quickly to avoid a
rainout. Racing ended around 9
p.m. with all divisions completing
there scheduled races. Jim Young
found his way back to victory lane
as a substitute for McAndrew.
Jesse Teed of Christmas won the
750 class. Derek Campbell took
his second win of the weekend in
the 1200 class. Once again Jesse
Brown drove to a victory in the
Street Stocks. Roger Crouse battled
with Shan Smith to take the win in
the Late Model Division. Trouble
with Tim Powers's car opened the
door for Tommy Evanoski to take
the win in the Limited Late Models.
Jason Intoppa drove away with the
win in the Mini Stock Division.
Special thanks to John Crad-
dock of the Florida Mini Sprint
Association for putting together
a great weekend of sprints. We
will be looking forward to hosting
this event next year. Our next race
will be on March 1. See you at the
races!

How do you love a porcupine?


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Loving people isn't always
easy. In fact, sometimes it is
downright hard. That's a hard
fact even on Valentine's Day. It's
not easy to love those who have
been a source of heartache,
abuse, rejection, or loneliness.
How do you love people who
cause you pain? Conventional
wisdom says a lack of love im-
plies a lack of effort, so we try
harder, dig deeper, strain more.
But could the lack of love be
from something else? Could we
be skipping an essential step?
Could it be that the first step of
love needs to be toward Him
and not toward them? Some-
times even preachers have been
guilty of skipping this first step.
We tell our church families to
love each other. Be patient, kind,
forgiving. But instructing people
to love without telling them they
are loved is like telling people to
write a check without making a
deposit into their accounts. No
wonder so many relationships
are overdrawn.
We are told to love, and we
know from the scriptures that
God wants us to love, and we
know that it's easy to love those
who love us, but how can we be
kind to those who are unkind
to us? How can we love those
who have really struck out and


betrayed us? How can we be
patient with people who have
the warmth of a vulture and the
tenderness of -
a porcupine? 7
We want to. .
We long to. But
how can we?
The secret of r
loving is living
loved. Love's
profit lies in its
practice. One of John
my favorite de- Hicks
scriptions of the practice of love
is found in 1 Corinthians 13 and
especially verses 4-8.
"Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not
boast, it is not proud. It is not
rude, it is not self-seeking, it is
not easily angered; it keeps no
record of wrongs. Love does not
delight in evil but rejoices with
the truth. It always protects,
always trusts, always hopes,
always perseveres. Love never
fails."
Some years ago, someone in-
vited me to put my name in this
passage wherever love was. I
did. John is patient, John is kind.
John does not envy, John does
not boast John is not proud,
John is not rude, is not easily
angered.
It made this passage more
personal for me, and these are
great aspirations, but the reality
is that I don't meet these stan-


dards all of the time. Few of us
do.
Rather than letting this Scrip-
ture remind us of a love we can't
produce, let's kick it up a notch
and let it remind us of a love we
can not resist a love that fills us
up and overflows the love of
God. Try inserting Jesus' name
in place of the word "love" and
see if it rings true.
"Jesus is patient, Jesus love
is kind. Jesus does not envy, Je-
sus does not boast, Jesus is not
proud. Jesus is not rude, Jesus
is not self-seeking, Jesus is not
easily angered, Jesus keeps no
record of wrongs. Jesus does
not delight in evil but rejoices
with the. truth. Jesus always
protects, always trusts, always
hopes, always perseveres. Jesus
never fails."
That's God's love for us!
Some thirst heavily for this type
of love. Some don't even know
how thirsty they are. All of us
need it. Drink this in: "God loves
you Personally, Powerfully,
Passionately."
Others have promised and
failed, but God has promised
and succeeded. He loves us
with an unfailing everlasting
love. And His love, if you will let
it, can fill you and leave you with
a love that is not only filling, but
fulfilling, and a love that will
overflow to love others even
those porcupines in our lives.


Valentine's Day: Love, healing,


laying foundations, God at work


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
If there is anything that cuts
across all nationalities, cultures,
peoples, times in history, hu-
man conditions; it is "love." My
library includes several books on
the topic, none of them offer any
definitive answers but the scrip-
tures have some guides for us
all. I had the words from 1 Corin-
thians 13 framed and hanging in
my office. One of the persons do-
ing his community service time
while on probation was struck
by them.
He hadn't ever been a church-
goer or involved in "religion" but
began to ask questions. I took the
plaque off of the wall and made
him a copy; he shared it with his
girlfriend.
There are those who have
become cynical or bitter; others
who misunderstand what love
requires, become possessive or
jealous; and they miss some-
thing.
I knew of a young man who
met the girl of his dreams, fell
in love, and then prepared to
meet the girl's family. His fian-
c6e warned him that it wouldn't
go easily; she was an only child
and her mother spoke about her
daughter as "my possession."
They met and then the mother


began to talk about her belief in
divorce, telling the young man
that she be-
lieved in it and,
if things didn't
work out, well-
that would be '"'
too bad but
he'd have to get
used to the idea
(Mother had
been married Samuel S.
to her one-and- Thomas
only for many,
many years). The young man
told the potential mother-in-law-
to-be that it might mean that
he'd have to face the prospect of
being single for the rest of his life
if things didn't work out, because
he didn't believe in divorce and
that would be his only option.
"Mother" got angrier; he didn't
rise to the bait! He had deflect-
ed an assault on the hopes and
dreams the couple shared and
avoided a head-on confrontation
and shouting match where there
needed to be open doors and the
basis for a future relationship.
The Lord encountered a de-
moniac who worships Him but
who pleads, "I adjure you, by
God, not to torment me (Mark
5:7)." This is a story about a man
who desperately needs others
but is afraid even of the God of
love. The demons that inhab-
ited the tormented man are sent


During the month of February, love is what makes the world go round


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
The month of February has
long held special meaning for
sweethearts, husbands and
wives, families, and friends. It has
often been referred to as "LOVE
Month", because our minds are
drawn toward an awareness of
feelings for others, and we make
special efforts to express these
feelings. Many a verse and lyric


have been dedicated to LOVE.
LOVE is the central theme of the
majority of the world's music and
poetry.
It has been said that "LOVE"
makes the world go around!
However you feel about this state-
ment, you must admit that LOVE
is a vital part of the world. With-
out LOVE in the world, life here
would be virtually impossible. Ev-
eryone LOVES someone or some-
thing, whether they wish to admit


it or not, even if it is only them-
selves. Can you imagine a world
without LOVE in it? Without Love
crime and lawlessness would run
rampant and we would not be
safe anywhere.
However, there is LOVE, in
the world. It was placed here by
the Master, the Creator, the Giver
of Life and all that we have. The
world was formed as a result of
LOVE! Mankind was meant to
LOVE one another. If it weren't


for LOVE the world would have
ceased to exist long ago, because
God would not have withstood
man's treatment of Him. The
LOVE of God is what makes the
world revolve. The word of God
came to man.out of LOVE. Christ
came to earth, suffered and died
for our sins, because of LOVE.
Christ established His church out
of LOVE. LOVE is the strongest
force for motivation in the world.
Most of the things which we un-


dertake in our lives are a result of
LOVE. LOVE is the driving, moti-
vating force behind Christianity.
LOVE is not to be limited to our
own family, friends, and neigh-
bors. LOVE is to be extended to
ALL MEN, regardless of their sta-
tus, race or national origin. LOVE
is to be extended to friends, en-
emies, acquaintances, -strangers,
and to all people regardless of
their creed. We are to LOVE the
world as Christ did. By LOVING as


He did we can lead men to Him.
LOVE NEVER FAILETH!
The Greek word for LOVE
"Agape" means to "SEEK THE
HIGHEST GOOD". It definition
goes like this: "Intelligent, unself-
ish, active, good will".
You can easily determine if you
LOVE God by reading the follow-
ing scriptures. John 14:15; I John
2:5; 4:7-8, 20-21; 5:2-4; I Corinthi-
ans 13.

RELIGION


packing into a herd of swine.
They will meet their demise af-
terward, but the demoniac is
not placed in the middle of a
struggle between them and the
one whose love will heal him.
There was no wrestling match
between a tormented soul and
the 'forces of good and evil; the
evil is deflected and love shows
forth. I watch people who avoid
taking sides in conflicts. They are
the ones who will get a hearing
when the hard questions are
asked; they are the ones who will
be able to give something to the
tormented.
Our capacity to see beyond
the threats and challenges, to
understand that "love is patient,
love is kind, does not envy, does
not boast, is not proud, is not
rude, is not self-seeking, is .not
easily angered, keeps no record
of wrongs, rejoices with the'
truth, always protects, always
trusts, always hopes, always per-
severes. (1 Corinthians 13:4ff)"
Someone has said, "We need to
be loved the most when we're
the most unlovable" and those
who are capable of that kind of
love share a secret with all o0
those who believe in love; bring'
healing, lay foundations, begin
to see the very nature of God
Himself at work in a difficult and
trying world.

Public Service Announcement

Automated Sanitation

For Residential Customers

Dear Resident. The City of Clewiston announces a new Automated Sanitation Service
to all residential customers beginning during March 2008. Automated collection of
household garbage is a technologically advanced refuse collection system and is called
"automated" because a special truck, equipped with a mechanical/robotic arm, auto-
matically lifts and empties a city-provided "tipper" cart without the driver ever leaving the
cab of the truck. The automated system is designed to reduce operational cost, im-
prove service efficiency, make the task of disposing of garbage cleaner for the resi-
dents, improve the appearance of the city, and greatly reduce the)njury potential for city
employees. Other general information follows: "

HOMEOWNER REQUIREMENTS

Tipper Carts will be delivered to each residence by the end of February 2008 and
use of the carts must start immediately upon.delivery. Twice a week pick will contin-
ue and service days will not change. Service rates will not change. With the Automated
System, the City will no longer provide back yard service other than for qualified
"disability" customers.

All customers must roll their city-provided tipper carts to curbside on service day.
No other garbage containers may be used for collection. The cart is to be placed at
the street by 6:00 AM on the morning of collection and must be removed from the
street before 7:00 PM on collection day. Carts are not to be left at the street at any
other time. Customers who leave the cart at street side in violation of this policy will be
subject to a fine of not less than $25.00.

All household refuse/garbage items must be placed within the cart. It is recommend-
ed that garbage items be bagged and tied, then deposited in the cart. Cardboard boxes
should be broken down so they take less room in the cart. Do not overfill the cart to
the extent the lid will not fully close. If the lid is not closed, garbage will spill to road so
the container may not be emptied. Items not in the cart will not be picked up and no
other waste items except horticulture or "special pick up" goods may be placed at curb-
side for city services.

The cart must be placed within 3 feet of the curb at least 4 feet from any tree, pole,
mailbox, fire hydrant; etc, and at least 10 feet away from any cars parked in the street.
Place the cart so the wheels and the handle face toward the house.

Except on service day, the cart must be stored in the backyard, garage, or other con-
venient location so it is not discernable from any street.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if my cart is damaged or stolen? The carts are the property of the City of Cle-
wiston and each one is assigned an address and serial number. All reports of damage
or theft will be investigated by calling the Public Works Dept Office at 983-1471. Re-
pairs or replacements will be made as needed.

May I use refuse containers other than the city provided tipper cart? No, the auto-
mated truck will only pick up city issued containers. Customers will have a choice of a
96 gallon or a 65 gallon cart.
What kinds of refuse can I put in the Automated Garbage Container? Only residential
refuse or solid waste resulting from normal housekeeping activities of a dwelling unit
may be placed within the container.
Does the city provide assisted and / or rear door collection with the automated gar-
bage container? Yes, the City provides "disability service" when residents provide a
doctor's statement informing us that a resident is unable to take their garbage to the
street. Once we have received that statement, we will begin your assisted service.

What if one cart is not enough for our weekly garbage? Additional carts may be pur-
chased from the City. This is a one-time user fee and the cart remains the property of
the City. If a resident moves to another location within the city, the extra purchased cart
may be taken, otherwise, the cart stays at the current address.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The City will only pick up the automated service cart that is as-
signed to your particular residence by the Public Works Department. All other bags,
cans, containers or carts will not be picked up. PLEASE CONTACT THE CITY PUB-
LIC WORKS DEPARTMENT AT 983-1471 FOR ANY QUESTIONS.

SOUTH FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT
IRRIGATION WATER USE PERMIT RENEWAL WORKSHOP
The South Florida Water Management District will begin the water use permit renew-
al process for the Kissimmee Basin, which includes portions of Glades, High-
lands, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola and Polk counties. All individual and major
general water use permits for irrigation must be renewed by the dates established
for each of the basins. Since Water Use Permits have a finite duration, they must
be renewed in order to re-establish the right to use water. Applications for permit
renewals will be evaluated against criteria contained In updated rules.
In order to explain the revised rules and renewal process, an informational workshop
for the Basin will be held at the District's Okeechobee Service Center located at
205 North Parrot Avenue (Suite 201) in Okeechobee. The workshop will be on
February 27th beginning at 10:00 a.m. In the auditorium. All of the workshops are
scheduled to Inform permit holders of the renewal process, processing fees,
deadlines and to assist with any problems or questions.
Additional Information can be found on the Water Use Permit Renewal page on the
District web site at wwwstwmd.oov or by calling the informational outline at
(800) 547-2694.

Gove Elementary


Cat Talk
Spelling
Bee: Gove Ele-
E S mentarySchool
held its annual
Spelling Bee on
Dec. 14, 2007.
Students from
grades 4-6 competed for top hon-
ors and the opportunity to repre-
sent Gove at the District Spelling


Bee to be held at the Kravis Cen-
ter on Feb. 26. Muhammed Ali,
the first place winner, is a fourth
grade student in Ms. Hernandez'
homeroom; he will represent our
school at the district level. Le-
nah Sa'ad, a sixth grade student
in Mrs. Easdale's homeroom,
was awarded second place. All
participants received trophies for
their hard work and for making
this year's Spelling Bee one of the
best. It was certainly a nail-biter
to the end! Special thanks to Mrs.
Mary Evans, Mr. Robby Wil-
son, and Mrs. Evelyn Johnson
for taking the time to judge the
competition and to Mrs. Clarice
Davis, Reading Coach, for spon-
soring this event.
A mock election: Students in
Mrs. Rodriguez' and Mrs. Bratt's
fourth grade team put into prac-
tice many of the skills learned in
reading and math by participating
in a "mock election". Using the
Spanish newspaper "La Palma",
students read and discussed each
of the presidential candidates'
platforms. Based on the informa-
tion gathered, they compared and
contrasted each of the platforms
and made predictions as to the
candidate (Republican and Dem-
ocrat) that would win in the Flor-
ida Primary Elections. They also
analyzed the "right to vote" and
the necessary steps needed to
exercise that right. On the same
day as the Florida Primary Elec-
tions (Tuesday, January 29th),
the students held a mock election
following the process learned.
Students eagerly compared their
predictions to the actual results
from the state. It was a great civ-
ics lesson and certainly one that
the students will remember for
the rest of their lives. We thank
Mrs. Rodriguez for exposing the
students to this important civic
duty... the right to VOTE!

Man burned in mobile home fire


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE-A man was burned
on Friday, Feb: 8 at approximately
2 p.m., while working on his
brother's car, according to the fire
rescue.
Don DeLucia, the captain and
public information officer for the
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue,
said that the accidental fire oc-
curred while the victim was at-
tempting to repair a fuel pump.
The pump, according to the


fire rescue captain, was near the
engine compartment of the car.
"Apparently, there was an
accidental spark that ignited
the gasoline," Captain DeLucia
said. "When that happened, the
patient's brother grabbed the
hose, wet down the patient and
knocked the fire down."
The mobile home, located at
501 Golden Place, suffered mini-
mal damage, fire rescue officials
said.
According to Teri Barbera, the
spokeswoman for the Palm Beach


County Sheriff's Office, deputies
stood by the scene as they were
waiting for the fire marshal to de-
termine the cause of the incident.
The victim was subsequently
airlifted via Trauma Hawk to St.,
Mary's Hospital due to the sever-
ity of the burns, fire rescue offi-
cials said.
The fire rescue did not release
any identification of the victim, as
it is prohibited by HIPPA regula-
tions, Captain DeLucia said.

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.

Legends of

the Heart

Saint Valentine's Day
By Nancy Dale
No other occasion is so roman-
tically linked to "love" than "St.
Valentine's Day," but who is this
saintly figure who' immortalized
"love" throughout the ages?
When the despot Emperor
Claudius II ruled Rome, he was
not so enamored with mythologi-
cal goddess of love and ordered
all Roman soldiers not to marry.
He wanted the soldiers loyal to he
army, not to their spouses. But de-
spite his decree, Roman priest Val
entine defied the edict and nmarrid
couples secretly. When his :defiance
was discovered, he v.a- arrt.ised
and beheaded on Feb. 1-1
In honor of St. Valerire's dedi.
cation to "love," Valentine's Da~ be
came a tradition.
Valentine's Day coFrLinue, 1i: be
celebrated in many trad,:,rir.s all
over the world. In Europe, peasanLs
acknowledge their belu- ed bi gin-
ing them with paper valeniries p,
Wales, "love spoons" are- -icribedJ
with romantic pictures beli'-telj I'1
open the heart.
Other Valentine's Da' legends
date back to the Middle Ages in it-he
1400s, when Christoplier C''luir-i
bus launched his long v\'crages to
the New World, sailors mourned
their absences writing lr, e songs
and verses, the oldest knri n senn-
ments preserved in the Bntih- Mu-
seum.
Throughout the aes,. VlJen-
tine's Da pec .::: :'

Xavier didn't begin playing
football until he moved to South
Bay in sixth grade. Born in Kings-
ton, Jamaica, Xavier remembers
playing soccer a lot in his native%
country.
Eddie met Xavier in sixth grade
at Lake Shore Middle School. Xavi-
er was considered a quiet type at
the time, while Eddie was a class
clown and one of the most popu-
lar students in the school.
Eddie's infectious smile and
his personality eventually led to
a friendship with Xavier, which
remains to this day. In fact, Xavier
believes that playing youth foot-
ball helped him gain acceptance
in the area.
"Football made me have
friends," Xavier remembered.
"I had nothing to do at the time
because I didn't know anyone
then."
Playing three years of youth
football for the Pioneer Park
team in.Belle Glade, Xavier origi-
nally wanted to be a kicker, but
his coaches told him to play as a
lineman and just hit the opposing
lineman.
On Xavier's first ever play as a.
lineman, he remembered having
a sack on Travis on the goal line
during his youth football days.
That moment was when Xavier
believed he would become a good
lineman for years to come.
By the way, Xavier doesn't
forget to credit his youth football
coach, known as 'Preacher,' for
teaching him his football skills.
Most importantly, however, Xavi-
er's stepfather, Melvin James,.
helped groom his football skills
along the way, encouraging him
every day to continue playing
football even when things didn't
go right for him.
Eddie, who grew up in South
Bay along with Xavier, played six
years of youth league football for
the Pioneer Park team. He started


After the outside demonstra-
tions, Mr. Heinz took the employ-
ees inside and went over home
safety and the importance of
smoke alarms and family escape
plans. He pointed out some po-
tential fire hazards, which include
extension cords and unattended
cooking.
"I like to give adults informa-
tion on the potential fire hazards
in the home, what to look for and
how to correct it," Mr. Heinz said.
Ms. Edwards said that the stu-
dents' families will soon be able
to obtain smoke detectors for
their homes, courtesy of the fire
rescue's smoke program, which
also offers smoke detector instal-
lation.

it was revealed that the Sugarcane
Golf Group was the only firm that
responded.
"As time is of essence and the
city continues to incur expendi-
tures related to keeping the golf
course in operation, I believe it
is imperative to move forward as
quickly as possible in this mat-
ter," Mr. Underwood said in the
memo.
The framework of the contract
with the Sugarcane Golf Group
was not finalized during the spe-
cial meeting. But the city manager
hopes to have the contract terms
finalized by Jan. 31.
In the meeting, Mr. Under-
wood told the commissioners
and the audience that the lease
with the municipal golf course is
set to expire on Feb. 2.

transition, which would reduce

playing football at three positions:
quarterback, wide receiver and
safety.
If not for the emergence of
Bryan Mann, who eventually led
Glades Central to its sixth state
championship in 2006, Eddie
probably would be playing quar-
terback right now.
Considered in youth football as
a running quarterback, Eddie fa-
vored two kinds of passes: the go
route pass and the slant. But when
Eddie went to Glades Central High
School in ninth grade, Bryan was
the Raiders quarterback.
Not wanting to be a backup
quarterback to Bryan, Eddie de-
cided to switch positions.
"So I felt that I needed to be
a receiver," Eddie said. "I would
have a better chance at that posi-
tion."
But for Eddie, there was one
major problem for him at the
wide receiver position in, ninth.
grade: he couldn't play football
in his freshman year due to high
blood pressure.
So Eddie would be out of com-
petition until he returned in 10"'1
grade. He played as a wide receiv-
er at the junior varsity level, while
moving up to the varsity team in
the middle of the 2005 season
- Willie Snead's first season as the
Raiders head coach.
Eddie was good enough his
sophomore year to play at the
varsity level, netting some playing
time in the playoffs that season.
Xavier took a different path to-
ward becoming a coveted Raider
football player. He was one of
only a few seniors who played on
the varsity team for four years.
The opportunity was made
possible in part because Preston
Vickers, the strength and condi-
tioning coach, was impressed
with Xavier's play during his youth
football days.
"Coach Vickers told me, 'Next
year, we'll be short on linemen, so
I'm gonna play you on varsity',"
Xavier remembered vividly.
Starting four games as an of-
fensive guard in his sophomore
year, Xavier's coaches believed he
had a lot of potential to play at the
college level. He started getting
looks from colleges such as the
University of Wisconsin and the

Commissioner Miller, who

with the swift progression of the
golf course's transition.
"The Sugarcane Golf Group

the money and the equipment. I
felt that some of the other bidders
did not present those three items

Vice-Mayor Kendall disagreed
with the assessment, however, as
she felt that Mr. Jackson was the
most qualified applicant to work

"I really would have liked for
Mr. Jackson to receive the oppor-

The knee injuries that
almost ended it all
Going into their junior seasons
in 2006, both Eddie and Xavier
had high hopes of making a big
impact on the varsity level, as they
were projected to start in their re-
spective positions. But for the two
of them, their junior years proved
to be the toughest of their lives.
Xavier suffered a double
whammy in his junior year, be-
ginning with the dislocation of his
elbow in the Raiders spring game
against Daytona Beach-Mainland.
Then, just two weeks before
the Raiders first regular season
game an epic battle between
the then-fifth ranked team in the
country and No. 3 Byrnes, S.C.
- Xavier received some devastat-
ing news.
Xavier tore the ACL (anterior
cruciate ligament) in his left knee,
effective ending his junior season.
Remembering the scene of
events like it was yesterday, Xavier
was working on a lineman drill
in football practice. While on the
drill, Xavier's left leg was stuck in
a hole and one of his teammates
hit his leg, snapping it back.
"I was like, 'Man, it's over for
me,'" Xavier said solemnly. "I
thought that football might not be
for me anymore. My chances of
getting a scholarship were gone
after that. I felt like I let my team-
mates down."
For Eddie, his season ended
during the Aug. 18, 2006 kickoff
classic game against Palm Beach
Gardens.
As Bryan threw an intercep-
tion against Palm Beach Gardens,
Eddie tackled the opposing cor-
nerback and then the clean break
came: a lineman fell of Eddie's
left knee while he was standing
upright.
Interestingly, Eddie's season
would end due to an ACL tear in
his left knee.
"To be honest, I was just think-
ing about basketball because I
knew my football season was
over," Eddie said. "I had to think
about my immediate future."
After getting home from the
game, Eddie couldn't walk. In fact,

Kenneth G. Orender, the CEO
of the Sugarcane Golf Group,
said that the firm, which was in-
corporated on Jan. 22, is already
in negotiations with a variety of
golf industry leaders in including
minorities and women, working
with them to learn how to play
.golf and understand the golfing
business.
Mr. Orender added that by the,
end of the summer, the group'
plans on building a practice fa-
cility for educational and instruc-
tional purposes, to be located
nearby.

Xavier gave Eddie his crutches to
use at the time.
"I thought I couldn't play
football anymore," Eddie said. "I
was in a slump mentally and my
grades dropped. When I found
out I couldn't play basketball ei-
ther, that really hurt me. I was not
happy about that."
Throughout the Raiders state
championship season, both Eddie
and Xavier sat side-by-side every
football game on the sidelines.
"I was thinking, 'Why me?' I
couldn't understand why it was
happening to me," Eddie said. !
The season was so hard for
Xavier, thatI I' it. -,it- r.'. actrl -

"It was son hard to see my
teammates go to war in that
game," Xavier said. "I couldn't
fight with them. One minute you
could be on top of the world, the
next minute you could feel like
nobody."
Moving on
to the next level
Now, as both Eddie and Navie
prepare to continue playing foot-
ball at the college level, they could
appreciate the fact that the ACL
injuries actually made them much
stronger, physically and mentally.
They are both considered in-;
spirational to many around them,
not only because of what they
overcame, but because they re4

classroom.
Both Xavier and Eddie were-
honored at this past season's Muck
Bowl Banquet for their classroom
achievements. Eddie has the high-'
est grades on the team, boasting
a 3.0 cumulative grade point aver-
age, while of all the seniors, Xavier
scored the highest on the ACT ex-
ams.
With love and support from all
of their peers and their families,
it's no wonder they're headed in
the right direction.
"I learned that you could never
take anything for granted,".Eddie
said. "God blessed me for a rea-
son and I just took all of this as a
learning experience."
