Littering laws to be enforced


Fines are set in
place to ensure city
cleanup

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE The Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office and the
City of Pahokee are making a
conscious effort in making sure
the area is cleaned up.
According to Reinaldo Alon-
so, the District 12 lieutenant and
commander, the sheriff's office


is taking the next step in the
process of cleaning up the city's
streets, with strict enforcement
of all littering laws, effective im-
mediately.
If anyone is caught littering
on public property, then a fine of
$100 will be assessed.
"I encourage the citizens to
police themselves in this area
due to the high fines that will be
imposed with a littering viola-
tion," Lt. Alonso said. "Together,
we can work toward making Pa-
hokee a great place to live and a
home we could be proud of."


Also, residents are reminded
by the sheriff's office that pos-
session of shopping carts and/
or dairy containers are consid-
ered stolen property, according
to the Florida State Statutes. The
infraction is punishable as a first-
degree misdemeanor and up to
one year in prison.
"We want to educate the pub-
lic on these laws so they don't
get themselves into trouble,"
said Thomas Padgett, a corporal
of the sheriff's office. "They're
not aware of all the laws that are
out there for them to follow."


Taking it to the streets: City in action


INI/Naji Tobias
On Saturday, Mar. 1, the commissioners of the city of Belle Glade'took a tour of some
areas of the community. During thie 50 minute walk, Which began at 9 a.m., city offi-
cials took a look at the entire landscape of the coverage areas, particularly the water
mains.


INI/Naji Tobias
Belle Glade city officials Maritza Navarro and Mary Jo Walker are surveying the area
of Southeast Avenue G to see what needs to be done to beautify the community at the
conclusion of the Mar. 1 city project entitled, 'City Manager Takes Government to the
People.'


Track program looks for respect


Boys and girls
teams are focused

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE "We don't ask
for respect, we demand it," said
John Ford, the Pahokee Blue
Devils girls track coach.
It's generally the slogan for
both the boys and girls teams
this season.
During every track season,
the Blue Devils sense an ago-
nizing feeling that its neighbor-
ing rival, Glades Central, gets
all of the headlines and most
importantly, the respect -- this


is something that the coaches
feel.
Now, the track program is
looking to make its presence
known throughout the season
and feature some state champi-
ons of its own.
Girls looking for
notoriety
For Ford, who coached the
boys team last year, there are
just two simple goals for his
girls team. They are to take as
many girls as possible to the
Class 2A state championship
meet in Winter Haven and win
all the races at the state meet,
should the girls get that far.


Watching the girls practice,
the tenacity and focus could be
seen in their eyes. It seems like
many of them are hungry for a
gold medal.
In preparation for their
meets, the girls generally can
be seen running 10 laps and
five 150 meter runs, full speed.
The day before their meets, the
girls work on hand-offs, start-
ing block techniques and form
running.
Just last week, at the Glades
Central Quad Meet, though the
team finished second to the
Raiders Glades Central won
the meet with 135 poilits, with
Pahokee following at 68 there
See Track Page 20


The sheriff's office will for-
warding city information to
its code enforcement on pri-
vate properties that need to be
cleaned up for proper enforce-
ment, according to Lt. Alonso.
Susan Feltner, the city's code
enforcement officer, said that if
private properties are not prop-
erly kept up with, then the prop-
erty owners will be cited for fail-
ure to maintain their homes and/
or business.
"A notice of violation will be
issued, stating what the violation
is, what must be done to correct


it and the compliance date," Ms.
Feltner said. If property owners
continue not to comply, then they
will have to appear at a hearing
before a special master."
With possible fines of up to
$500 a day, the special master
will set its own compliance date
for property owners to follow.
If non-compliance continues
10 days after the date set by the
special master, a lien will be filed
against the property in question.
Three months after the lien is
filed, if the owner still doesn't

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES The area's March
11 election results are in and its
citizens.have clearly spoken.
It's safe to say that a chang-
ing of the guard has taken place
in both Belle Glade and Paho-
kee.
Pahokee's J.P. Sasser and
Belle Glade's Donald Garrett'
both lost their mayoral seats
in stunning fashion to Wayne
.\Wi iaker and Sieve W'ilson, re-
spectively.
In Pahokee, the incumbent
mayor of Pahokee lost to his
opponent by 98 votes, a 411-


to-313 margin in which 57 per-
cent voted to end Mr. Sasser's
tenure.
"I feel great about this vic-
tory," the new commissioner
said. "It's a new beginning for
the city of Pahokee. It's been 4
good time for me and I thank
the Lord for this win."
Mr. Sasser, who had served
as a Pahokee commissioner
since 2001, was unavailable for
comment.
Meanwhile, 56 percent of
the Belle Glade citizens felt that
Steve Wilson, the incumbent's
opponent, is a better fit to serve
as their commissioner.
Mr. Garrett lost by 237 votes,
a 1,179-o-9-12 margin.
Mr. Wilson regains a com-
missioner seal just two years

By Naji Tobias

PAHOKEE A 1999 blue
Dodge van was riding through
the city on March 2 at approxi-
mately 3:15 p.m. when it was
stopped for speeding.
When the driver of the van,
a woman in her mid-40s from


Miami, opened the window to
the vehicle, officers smelled a
strong odor of marijuana inside
of the vehicle. Two men were
riding in the back of the van.
According to the sheriff's of-
fice, a large pile of marijuana
was seen along with a shot gun
propped up near the sliding
rear door.
After the three suspects were
ordered out of the vehicle, tests
on a large pile of weeds were
completed, which confirmed

Protect yourself against the return of flu season


Good hygiene,
common sense
can prevent spread

By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
South Florida's warm climate
doesn't stop cold and flu season.
In fact, it may help it to spread.
Tourists and winter residents from
other areas, seeking the comfort
of Florida sunshine, also spread
cold and flu viruses.
According to the Center 'for
Disease Control, (CDC) the flu is
a contagious respiratory illness
caused by influenza viruses. It can
cause mild to severe illness, and
at times can lead to death.
CDC records show that every
year in the United States, on aver-
age 5 percent to 20 percent of the
population gets the flu. More than
200,000 people in the U.S. are
hospitalized each year from flu
complications, and about 36,000
people die from flu.

Some people are more at risk
because their immune system is
already compromised by age or
illness. Most at risk are the very
old, the veryyoung and those with
health conditions such as asthma,
diabetes or heart disease.
Symptoms of flu include:


I


*fever;
*headache;
*extreme tiredness;
dry cough;
*sore throat;
*runny or stuffy nose;
*muscle aches: and
*nausea.
Vomiting and diarrhea can oc-
cur but are more common in chil-
dren than adults.
The flu can also lead to more
serious illnesses. According to
the CDC, complications of flu can
include bacterial pneumonia, ear
infections, sinus infections, dehy-
dration, and worsening of chron-
ic medical conditions, such as
congestive heart failure, asthma,
or diabetes.
Flu viruses spread mainly
from person to person through
coughing or sneezing of people
with influenza, the CDC warns.
Sometimes people may become
infected by touching something
with flu viruses on it and then
touching their mouth or nose. In-
fected persons may spread the flu-

Glenda Wilson
HRMC
March is National Colorectal
Cancer Awareness Month,
It takes guts to face the facts
about colorectal cancer and do
something about it. Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center wants you
to know the facts:
1.Colorectal cancer is the
second leading cause of cancer
deaths in the United States-
only lung cancer is more deadly,
affecting about 174,000 people
each year and taking 160,000
lives.
This year alone, about 149,000
Americans will be diagnosed
with colorectal cancer and about
55,000 will die from it. By com-
parison, breast cancer will affect
213,000 women this year and
claim about 41,000 lives. During
that same time, roughly 234,000


men will be diagnosed with pros-
tate cancer and 27,000 will die
from it.
2. Even though colon cancer
and rectal cancer are often re-
ferred to together (as colorectal
cancer), they describe cancers of
two different areas. Rectal cancer
occurs when a tumor grows in
the bottom 6 inches of the bow-
el. If a tumor grows in any area
of the bowel that's above the rec-
tum, it is called colon cancer.
3. Colorectal cancer affects
men and women in equal num-
bers. It is not a "man's disease,"
which is how some people
think.
4. Colorectal cancer doesn't
discriminate a person of any
race can get this disease. How-
ever, African-American men and
women are more likely to de-
velop colorectal cancer than any
other racial group, and they are
also more likely to die from it.
5. Although it is true that nine
out of ten cases of colorectal


cancer are diagnosed in people
older than 50, the average age for
diagnosis is only 62. This is why
doctors recommend that every-
one older than 50 should have
routine screening exams for col-
orectal cancer.
6. Genes can play a part in
who develops colorectal cancer.
As with many other diseases,
your risk goes up if a close fam-
ily member has had it. However,
the majority of people who get
colorectal cancer have no family
history at all.
7. The majority of people
who develop colorectal cancer
have no history of inflammatory
bowel disease or other bowel
conditions. Even if a person has
never had digestive problems of
any kind, he or she is still at risk
for colorectal cancer. However, a
change of bowel habits may be
an early symptom.
8. Colorectal cancer can grow
for a long time without caus-
ing any symptoms-or in some
cases, it may cause vague or low-


level symptoms that a person
might ignore. Often, by the time
it causes noticeable symptoms,
the cancer has become much
harder to treat.
9. Colorectal cancer is actu-
ally one of the most preventable
cancers. Tumors in the colon or
rectum begin as polyps (benign
growths), and it is possible to
detect and remove them before
they become cancerous. This is
done with a colonoscopy, a test
that uses a scope to examine the
entire colon and rectum. If the
doctor finds, any polyps, he or
she can remove them during the
exam.
10. When colorectal cancer
is found early meaning that
the cancer is confined to one
location within the colon or rec-
tum, it is very treatable, and the
vast majority of people survive.
It becomes much more difficult
to treat when it's discovered later
and after the cancer has spread
to other parts of the body.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) a quiet threat


PALM BEACH COUNTY-Wel-
lington Regional Medical Center
announced its support of DVT
Awareness Month, joining a na-
tional effort to raise awareness
of this serious, yet preventable
condition and its potentially fatal
complication, pulmonary embo-
lism (PE).
According to the American
Heart Association, up to 2 million
Americans are affected annually
by DVT; PE causes approximate-
ly 300,000 deaths in the United
States each year, more than AIDS
and breast cancer combined.
Yet, a national survey found
that 60 percent of Americans have
little or no awareness of DVT.
DVT occurs when a blood clot
forms and partially or completely
blocks blood flow inside a deep
vein, typically located in the calf or
thigh. If the blood clot breaks free
and travels to the lungs known
as a pulmonary embolism (PE), it
may obstruct the pulmonary ar-
tery or one of its branches, block-
ing blood flow to the heart.

top priority," said Jeffrey Bishop,
D.O., Wellington Regional's Chief
Medical Officer. "By heightening
awareness of the risk factors and
ensuring appropriate preventa-
tive measures are taken, we can
reduce the incidence of this con-
dition."
The Coalition to Prevent DVT,
a national organization funded by
sanofi-aventis U.S. LLC, is com-
prised of more than 45 members
from medical societies, patient
advocacy groups and other pub-
lic health organizations. It has
spearheaded DVT Awareness


Month efforts since its launch in
March 2003. Since the Coalition's
formation, more than 1 billion
educational messages have been
delivered.
Melanie Bloom, widow, of
NBC correspondent David Bloom
and the Coalition's National Pa-
tient Spokesperson, along with
the Coalition and its member or-
ganizations, have turned to the
healthcare community this year
to ensure that proper care and
treatment of DVT is provided for
at risk patients. Ms. Bloom's per-
sonal commitment to this cause


has had tremendous impact in
awareness raising efforts both in
the national media as well as the
public policy forum.
"DVT Awareness Month pro-
vides an excellent opportunity for
the general public and healthcare
community to learn about this
disease and how to reduce the
risk of a DVT blood clot," said Dr.
Bishop. "We encourage both the
public and healthcare profession-
als to be aware of all the risk fac-
tors associated with DVT, so that
patients can be treated appropri-
ately."
In recognition of the DVT
Awareness month, Wellington
Regional will designate one day
each week during the month of
March for a lobby display, hands-
on employee activities and will
provide community education on
DVT and stroke. Please join us on
March 11, 17 and 26.

Putting off the hard things and the one who didn't


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I like to delay things that are
uncomfortable or disquieting,
and I'm in good company. If I can
avoid something, more than likely
it will come up again to haunt me
- and it may be worse! Everyone
knows about putting off the trip to
the doctor and the consequences
it can bring.
There are times when you
simply have to get things done.
Whether it is a trip to the den-
tist; going to school because my
daughter was having problems,
standing besides a loved one in
court, facing surgery, having a tax
audit; these are the events that


cause people to say "Get it behind
you," "Get it over and get on with
your life." Whatever "it" may be,
we all look forward to having it
finished and done so better days
may come and we can have a
brigher future.
As we enter this coming week,
I began to think about this'story
of "getting it d6ne" and "getting
it behind, so that better days can
come." This Sunday will be Palm
Sunday- the next one Easter. Palm
Sunday is celebrated because it
commemorates a triumphal entry
into Jerusalem by the Lord. Jesus
and His disciples go up to Jerusa-
lem to celebrate the Passover, and
He institutes that sacred meal that
the faithful have been celebrating
ever since that Last Supper that


He has proclaimed we should
continue.
Following the supper comes
the darkest day in history. There
is a betrayal by someone who has
been taken in and counted among
the most intimate of friends, there
is an arrest and a trial that makes
a mockery of justice, there are in-
sults and brutality, and then there
is a painful and tragic death. "Get
it over with?" "Get it behind you?"
"Get on with your life?" Maybe
that was what it was all about!
The Lord did not procrastinate,
He entered the city knowing what
was to come, and He "got it over
with" because that "it" would ac-
complish the reason He came. It
would enable Him to "get on with
His life" because the life would


not be ended; and would con-
tinue on, getting on with life once
more as ascended and risen. The
earthly life would be behind Him,
over with, because that would
open the door for all of us to "get
on with our lives" too.
The triumphal entry into Jeru-
salem (John 12:lff), tells about
the crowds taking palm branches
out to meet Jesus, praising Him
and saying "Hosanna" "Save,
Lord", finding a young donkey for
Him to ride in as He enters in vic-
tory, people proclaiming "Blessed
is He who comes in the Name of
the Lord" and even those who
opposed Him saying "Look, the
whole world has gone after Him!
(verse 19)"
I am sure that the Lord was


aware of what was to come; He
had predicted it. He looked at the
big picture, faced what needed
to be faced because it meant He,
and all of us too would be able to
"get on with our lives."
The triumphal entry is a sign
that there was no procrastination,
no putting off the hard moments,
but facing up and then finally be-
ing the victor over it all. Palm Sun-
day and this special coming week
that culminates in Easter is the
promise that we can "get on with
our lives" too and not only this
life but the life to come.
It is really about "getting on"
in eternity, with the Lord, forever,
and the gift of eternal life that
comes at the end of it all. The
week not about putting off, not


procrastinating, not about unnec-
essary delay, but knowing that the
hard moments will bring triumph
and be the reason for the coming
into the world. As people pray "...
thy will be done" we can think of
the events of this coming week
and say "Surely, God's will was
done" and take His witness as an.
example for us all. He did what
needed to be done, and because
of it, we all have received some-
thing wonderful. May this time of
preparing for Easter be a special
time for each of us as we remem-
ber, then give thanks as the story
unfolds; this greatest love story
of all times that He so loved the
world that He gave His only-be-
gotten Son for it and for us.


The stones 'Will shout aloud eligion*News in Brief


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Jesus spent His last Sabbath
in Bethany with His friends. The
news had already begun to cir-
culate that He was coming into
Jerusalem. The Bible narrative
reports that as He approached
the city, a great multitude came to
meet Him. Among them were not
only the citizens of Jerusalem, but
also those who had come up for
the feast of the Passover, and, of
course, the Pharisees who hated
him so. Also present were th Ro-
man authorities who had been
put on alert during the great feast
times lest there be some kind of
revolution.
Now, the time had come and
there was acclaim. Garments lined
the road before Him; limbs from
olive and palm trees were strewn
along the way. And the shouts
of recognition were deafening:
they cried, "blessings on Him
who comes as King in the name
of the Lord." Jesus openly admit-
ted now that He was the One sent
from God. To those who would
seek to quiet His subjects along
the way, His response was one
of awful majesty. He responded,
"I tell you, if my disciples keep si-
lence the stones will shout aloud.
(Luke 19:40).


Caterpillar

SBy Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Each year before Easter, we
.order over a hundred caterpillars
to raise into butterflies so they can
be released by children and fami-
lies at our flower cross on Easter
.Sunday morning.
They arrived last week, and as
I spent the evening using a small
paint brush to transfer caterpillars
to their individual feeding contain-
ers, oddly enough, my thoughts
turned to caterpillars. Over the
years I have learned more and
more about them as I raised them
for release.
It is amazing to watch a cat-
erpillar spin a chrysalis. It is even
more amazing to watch a butter-
fly emerge from its cocoon! But-
terflies symbolize new life, which
make them an excellent illustra-
tion for Easter. Their emergence
from their cocoons is symbolic of
Jesus' emergence from the tomb.
But butterflies teach us other im-
portant life lessons as Well.
The butterflies we get help the
environment by pollinating plants


Yet amidst all the pompt and
ceremony there was sadness in
the heart of Jesus Christ. Though
He was King, He knew that the
welcome would be fleeting. He
looked at the city and He cried,
saying, "If only you had known,
on this great day, the way that
-leads to peace! But no; it is hid-
den from your sight. (vs. 42).
The parade is over now, the
palm branches have all been
swept up and the clothes gath-
ered by those who threw them.
Jesus had been taken before the
authorities. The scene turns to a
man by the name of Peter; and
in six words that epitomize him
and the world in which we live,
he said, "I know not the man!"
These words were spoken by
a man who all of a sudden was
ashamed of the best thing that
had ever come into his life.
This can happen. You may
think it won't, but-it happens.
It happens to the best of us in
those moments when we are
called upon to make some obvi-
ous stand. We somehow forget
that at one time we were shout-
ing hosannas and spreading palm
branches in the path of the Son
,of God. It happens because of
fatigue, peer pressure, and unful-
filled willingness to follow the will


of God, perhaps by a selfish desire
to run things our own way. Who
knows? But when it happens, the
same sense of sorrow that caused
Jesus to cry as He overlooked the
city of Jerusalem, causes Him to
cry anew. The pain of rejection
echoes down through the chan-
nels of time-2,000 years later!
When we follow Him, He asks
us to:
1.Make our faith real to oth-
ers. We cannot give away some-
thing we do not have, but when
we have genuinely believed and
obeyed, we begin our pilgrimage
as Christian disciples.
2.Witness.lo our faith. Techni-
cally, we know that a witness is
someone who is present when
something of significance hap-
pens.
When we express this dynam-
ic faith, it does two things.
(a) It fortifies the person who
gives the witness;
(b) It moves the ordinary hear-
er of the witness to acknowledge
their own need.
You hold the key to eternal life!
Not just for yourself but for many.
You must be so convinced of your
faith and in your ability that, even
all though all others remain silent,
you will continue to proclaim Je-
sus Christ as Lord.

were at least two major positives
that came out of it.
It is noteworthy that the girls
edged out Glades Central in the
4X800 relay and 100 meter race.
Pahokee finished the relay in
11:04, while Glades Central fin-
ished in 11:06 and in the 100 me-
ter race, Pahokee's Ruth Ann Kin-
glocke edged out Glades Central's
Vionni Brown with a time of 12.5
seconds, while Brown finished at
12.62 seconds.
Last season, the girls qualified
for the 4X100 relay in the state
meet and Rickeria Lendale quali-
fied for the shotput event. With 11
girls on this year's team, here are
some stars that are worth watch-
ing our for:
Charmaine Sutton will be
competing in three events: the
400 meter race, the 4X100 relay
and 4X800 relay races.
Monshakeria Young will be
participating in the long jump,
100 meter, 200 meter, 4X100 and
4X400 relay races. Young's best
100 and 200 meter times are 12.7
and 26 seconds, respectively,
while her best long jump is 17-7
1/2.
Kinglocke competes in the
100 meter, 200 meter, 400 meter,
4X100 and 4X400 relay races. fer
best times in the 100, 200 and 400
meter races are 12.1, 25.4 and
57.01 seconds, respectively.
Boys on the move
Emmanuel Hendricks, the first-
year boys head coach, has 18 ath-
letes on his team this season. An
assistant coach for the last three
years, the 1999 Pahokee High
School graduate seeks to field a
team that can make an impact
this season.
Hendricks has at least two
goals in mind L getting as many
boys as possible to advance in
the Class 2A state championship
meet and winning the boys 4X100
relay gold medal.
While Hendricks would like
to see some of the boys win gold
medals this season, he knows
there is going to some stiff com-
petition out there. Nevertheless,
Hendricks knows what it takes to
win.
In 1998, Hendricks' junior year
of high school, he was a gold
medalist in the 300 meter hurdles,
with a recorded time of 37.98 sec-
onds in the Class 3A state cham-
pionship meet. In the same year,
+ Hendricks was a silver medalist in
the 100 meter race, with a time of
10.68 seconds.
In 1999, Hendricks' senior year,
he won the Class 3A silver medal
in both the 110 meter hurdles and
100 meter races, with times of
10.6 and 14 seconds, respectively.
"We're a team that's learning
how to compete in track, really,"
Hendricks said matter-of-factly.
"We have few bright spots, but
everybody that's out here is work-
inmghard."
H41is team's workouts include
sending the distance runners
to run' five miles from the high
school track to the Canal Point Ice
House and back. After returning
from the ice house, the distance
runners run two and a half laps
around the track for more condi-
tioning.
For the sprinters, they work
on the starting blocks, run 500
and 300 meters,' respectively and


work on plow metrics, consist-
ing of jumping, form running and
balance work.
The shotput and discus throw-
ers work out in the weight room
and then work on sprints, plow
metrics and explosion drills to en-
hance their hips for better throws
at meets.
"I have seen improvement in
each athlete since they have been
out here in January," Hendricks
said.
Here are some athletes to look
out for:
De Joshua Johnson, only a
sophomore, already has made
his presence felt on the track
when he won the overall boys
400 meter race at the March 4
Glades Central Quad Meet his
time was 51 seconds. Johnson
came in second overall in the 200
meter race, with a laser-recorded
time of 22.91 seconds. Also par-
ticipating in the 4X400 relay race
this season, Johnson would like
to capture the gold medal in at
least one of his events.
Nu'Keese Richardson, a ju-
nior, and Martavious Odoms, a
senior, will both be participating
in the 100 meter races, as well as
the 4X100 and 4X400 relays. At
the March 4 Glades Central Quad
Meet, Odoms and Richardson
both finished in third and fourth
with times of 11.14 and 11.16 sec-
onds, respectively in the 100 me-
ter race. Both would like to make
an appearance in the Class 2A
state meet in their events.
Micanor Regis, a senior, has
one simple goal in mind, which is
to capture the gold medal in the
shotput event. Regis has an op-
portunity last season, but was dis-
qualified due to improper attire at
the Class 2A state meet. He's off
to a good start, with a winning
throw of 48-0 at the Glades Cen-
tral Quad Meet last week.
With some of the boys get-
ting ready to graduate from high
school after the season is done
with later this spring, Hendricks
wishes them all the best.
"Athletics is a way out of the
Glades," Hendricks said. "If you
work it right, then you can com-
plete college free of charge and
have a head start on life."
But for now, fans have several
opportunities to see their Blue
Devils compete at these upcom-
ing track meets:
Mar. 14 Dwyer Relays @ 3:30
p.m.
Mar. 20 Glades Central Invita-
tional @ 3:30 p.m.
Mar. 27 Conference Meet in
Royal Palm Beach (time to be 4n-
nounced)
Apr. 3 County Meet @ 11 a.m.
- Dwyer High School
Apr. 10 Class 2A District Meet
@ 1 p.m. Glades Central H.S.
Apr. 17 to 18 -Class 2A Region-
al Meet (time and location TBA)
Apr. 24 to 26 Class 2A State
Finals @ 10:30 a.m. Winter Park
By the end of the season, Blue
Devils fans hope that the rest of
the state recognizes and respects
the talent and speed that exists in
Pahokee.


Making the most out of an opportunity


With talk of a
recession, company
hires locals

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES With the national
discussion now centering around
a possible recession, local cities
are taking the time to recognize
employers who are willing to hire
residents.
During a recent meeting in Pa-
hokee, leaders thanked the Bar-
nard Parsons Company for offer-
ing to hire more locals.
The construction company,
located about 13 miles south of
South Bay, is currently working
on the Everglades Restoration
project, more commonly known
as Acceler8.
According to the Sputh Florida
Water Management District, the
project is set to capture, move
and store regulatory water releas-
es from Lake Okeechobee, reduc-
ing harmful discharges to coastal
estuaries and improving its treat-
ment capabilities.
The project is set for comple-
tion by 2010, with the total cost
projected to be $600 million and
the estimated annual operating
cost $1.7 million.
Locals benefit from the job
opportunities that the project has
created.
Barnard Parsons has provided
employment opportunities for
118 people in the Glades area, in-
cluding David Adams.
According to Lisa Tisdale, the
human resources manager for
Barnard Parsons, Mr. Adams, 32,
is a valuable asset to the project.

after losing to Shelly Miller, now
his fellow commissioner, by 29
votes. He may also regain the
mayor's role that he lost in 2006,
providing that the majority of the
commissioners approve the vote
at a future meeting.
"I feel good about this and the
majority of the community has
spoken," Mr. Wilson said. "I look
forward to serving the citizens as
their next commissioner for the
next three years."
Mr. Garrett, who had served as
a commissioner since 2000, could
not be reached for comment.
Also joining Mr. Wilson for at
least three years as a commis-
sioner is Michael C. Martin, who
defeated Reverend Richard Harris
by a comfortable 232-point mar-
gin (1,117 to 885 and 56-to-44
percent).
The second time is the charm
for Mr. Martin, who lost in his pre-
vious commissioner bid to Mary
Kendall during the 2006 elec-

tions.
Mary Moore, a longtime Belle
Glade resident, is happy with the
results.
"I believe with the selection of
Steve Wilson and Michael Mar-
tin, it would be a better change
than what we're doing now," Ms.
Moore said, after exiting the poll-
ing place at the Lake Shore Civic
Center.
But Rev. Harris, who has failed

by the city of Pahokee for contributing to the labor force in the Glades area.
