COP program moves forward


Goal is to maximize
crime prevention in
the area

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES The Citizen Ob-
server Patrol (COP) program,
.sponsored by the sheriff's office,
is now ready and on the move.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office, the COP
volunteers are the eyes and ears
of the law enforcement officers.


On March 12, about 20 area
citizens attended a three-hour
training session at Palm Beach
Community College, which fo-
cused on such topics as traffic
control, patrol procedures, safe
practices, radio procedures, first
aid and CPR.
Frantz Gaudard, one of the
volunteers for the COP program,
said that he learned a lot from
the training session.
"Well, this class was very
informational in that we were
informed of how to actually be
safe in our jobs," Mr. Gaudard


said. "We learned, that safety is
the number one priority. We are
not law enforcement officers,
we're only observers."
In the training session, the
volunteers learned that if they
observe a crime in process, they
are not to approach or engage
anyone on the scene.
"We just need to report to the
sheriff's office, describe what we
see and leave the area," Mr. Gau-
dard said. "We were told to let
the law enforcement officers do
their jobs."
If a victim is present, the vol-


Jr. Harvest Queen shines: Avila wins

Alicia Michelle Avila, a 14-year-old girl from Glades Day School, was' 'shocked' after
being named the 2008 Junior Harvest Queen on March 15 at Palm Beach Community
College..
Avila is crowned Junior Harvest Queen


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE -- Approxi-
mately 300 people came out to
the Junior Harvest,Queen Pag-
eant, held on March 15 at
Palm Beach Community
College.
There were 21 contestants
in the pageant but in the end, a
visibly shocked Alicia Michelle
Avila, was crowned the 2008
Junior Harvest Queen.
Alicia thought that Alexia
Eighner, the first runner-up,
would win the pageant.
"I was so shocked I won, I
can't feel my toes," Alicia said
as she tried to fight back tears.
"I thought Alexia was going to
win."
Maybe the win had to do
with Alicia's interview question
from Michael Miller, the master
of ceremonies for the pageant.
"Who's your role model
and why?" Mr. Miller asked the
14-year-old from Glades Day
School.


"My sister, Adriana, because
she's always been there for
me and she's the best friend I
could look up to," Alicia said,
convincingly.
In the audience, Adriana
Avila, 18, was astonished' by
her younger sister's response,
followed by the win.
"I was very proud of Alicia
and honored by the fact she
thought so highly of me," Adri-
ana said. 'I didn't think that
I meant so much to her. We
had a good relationship before,
but this has brought us much
closer."
Deena Stamm, the Junior.
Harvest Queen coordinator,
said that the primary purpose
of the pageant was to prepare
the girls in responding to future
interview questions properly.
A confidence-building plat-
form for all 21 contestants, the
girls were also taught a variety
of posture techniques, which
made all of them look stunning
as they graced the stage in front


of the audience.
"The girls are very young
and they have learned a lot
from the pageant in how to
carry themselves," Ms. Stamm
said. "They now know how to
better interact with other peo-
ple and be more friendly.".
There were 10 finalists in the
pageant, withConnor Elizabeth
Boss as the second runner-up,
Mallory Miedema as the third
runner-up and Kerianne Des-
ruisseaux as the.fourth runner-
up.
But for Alicia,, her father,
Jose Avila, couldn't be any hap-
pier.
"Alicia is a very open-mind-
ed and easy going girl who
enjoys life and is very friendly,"
Mr. Avila said.
"She's fortunate to be liv-
ing in Belle Glade and winning
this pageant for her family and
friends."

Recognizing Ms. Vivian Mullins


Social worker
honored in National
Social Work Month

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES March is typically
the month to appreciate social
workers in the area.
Taking part in National So-
cial Work Month, the Depart-
ment of Children and Families
(DCF) is hoping to provide edu-
cational awareness regarding
the social worker's role in the
community.
DCF would like to recog-
nize Vivian Mullins, a protective


investigator from the Glades
area.
Ms. Mullins, who currently
resides in Pahokee, has been
with DCF since 1979 -- a total of
28 years. She was hired by the
organization through a sum-
mer youth program in 1978.
A 1978 Bethune Cookman
College graduate, Ms. Mullins
started out as an economic ser-
vices representative, providing
such services as food stamps,
child support and Medicaid for
needy children and families
throughout the Glades area.
As a case manager, Ms. Mul-
lins has influenced many teen-
agers, with many of them later
enjoying a happy and success-


ful adulthood.
It is safeqto say that Ms. Mul-
lins enjoys her job and is living
her lifelong dream to have a
positive impact on children and
families in the Glades area.
Q: What makes you look
forward to your day?
A: Serving -the community
and residents of the Glades,
just waking up and being able
to see another day and helping
people out every day.
Q: How do you think your
role at DCF has affected the
lives of individuals/families
around the area?
A: Basically, the number

unteers check whether emer-
gency attention is necessary
while officers arrive.
"As soon as the deputies ar-
rive, our job is dqne," Mr. Gau-
dard said.
Patrol uniforms were issued
after the three-hour training ses-
sion.
According to Deputy Sheriff
Mark Sutterfield, a field training
officer (FTO) will be riding with
the volunteers for.a minimum of
three times during the evaluation
period. After graduating from
the FTO program, the volunteers


will be allowed to patrol on their
own.
\ The volunteers will be oper-
ating under a COP Rover Unil,
which will provide coverage
throughout the Glades area, ac-
cording to Rolando Silva, the
sheriff's office captain of Distri~t
Five.
"We're looking at trying to
use the COP where they're most
effective," Captain Silva said:
"We will not isolate them to one
particular area."

Vehicle crashes



into restaurant


Victim pronounced
dead at the scene

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE A 26-year-
old man was killed on March
13 after crashing into a restau-
rant building.
According to the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office,
at about 8:16 p.m., Aron Gon-
zalez was driving a 2005 GMC
Yukon westbound on East Ca-
nal Street at a reportedly high
rate of speed.
After the victim drove off the
south side of East Canal Street'
at Southeast Third Street, his
vehicle plowed into a hedge
and power pole at the corner
of Southeast Second Street, de-
tectives said.


Investigators revealed that
almost immediately after the
victim's vehicle crossed over
into a nearby grass field, the
GMC Yukon overturned and
crashed through the Fish Res-
taurant building at the corner
of East Canal Street and South-
east First Street.
Officials said that the driver
was not wearing a seat belt at
the time of the crash and after
the victim was ejected from the
vehicle, he was pronounced
dead on the scene.
Teri Barbera, the sheriff's of-
ficespokeswoman, said that in-
vestigators are currently work-
ing the details of the incident,
but added that it will take some
time to get the details of the fa-
tal accident.

Day took an almost deadly turn

On Mar. 11, while the sher-

William Bruckner, a lieuten-

that 26-year-old Jermaine E.

but missed," Lt. Bruckner said.

carrot seeds to other countries and
other varieties of the plants were
developed, including a variety
of colors such as red, black and
white. By around the 10th centu-
ry, carrots were growing in what
is now Afghanistan, Pakistan and
Iran. Invaders are believed to have
brought the purple and yellow va-
rieties of carrots from North Africa
to southern Europe around the
12th Century.
Today's orange carrot was de-
veloped for royalty. First, Dutch
growers experimented with differ-
ent varieties of carrots to reduce.
the bitterness of the root, devel-
oping a reddish version. Around
the 1500s, Dutch scientists used
mutant yellow carrot seeds from
North Africa, crossed with their
less bitter red carrots to develop
an orange carrot in honor of the
House of Orange, the Dutch Royal
Family. They came up with the
sweet, orange-colored carrots that
are popular worldwide today.
Some information for this
column came from the web site
www.carrotmuseum.com. Here's
some carrot trivia from www.car-

The Longest Carrot recorded
in 1996 was 16 feet 10.5 inches.
Carrots are about 85 percent
water.
Carrots were first grown as a
medicine not a food.
The average person will con-
sume 10,866 carrots in a lifetime.
Tobacconists in France used
to put a carrot in their bins to keep
their tobacco from drying out.
In early Celtic literature, the
carrot is referred to as the "Honey
Underground."
Carrots were the first vegeta-
ble to be canned commercially.
You get between 175,000
and 400,000 seeds in a pound a
teaspoon can hold approximately
2000 carrot seeds.
The carrot is a member of the
parsley family including species
such as celery, parsnip, fennel, dill
and coriander.
The Anglo-Saxons included
carrots as an ingredient in a me-
dicinal drink against the devil and
insanity.

A call to all fathers: calling all dads


24/7 Dad

The most disturbing social
trend of our times is the dramatic
increase in fatherlessness in the
United States. Contrary to popular
belief; fathers play a great part in
the lives of their children. Fathers
are a vital part of their children's
development and their identity.
Currently, more than 27 mil-
lion children-39 percent of all US
children-now live apart from their
father. In a typical year, well over
one-third of these children won't
even see their dad. More than
half of all European-American
children and three-quarters of all
African-American children born
since 1975 will live some portion
of their formative years with only
one parent; and in the vast major-
ity of these cases, it's the father
who is absent.
Research shows that the costs
of fatherlessness are high. Chil-
dren with little or no contact with
their fathers are more likely to
Sdrop out of school and become
involved in drug and alcohol
abuse; girls are more likely to


become pregnant as teens, and
boys are more likely to become
involved in crime and violence.
Unfortunately, even when a father
is physically present in the home,
he may be emotionally absent.
Often, men don't know how to
effectively involve themselves in
the lives of their children.
In 1960, less than 8 million
children were living in families
where the father was absent. To-
day the number of children living
in father-absent homes stands at
27 million. That means that to-
night one out of every three chil-
dren in America will go to sleep in
a home in which their father does
not live. While it is at times easy
to throw around statistics such as
these to make a point, the plain
truth of the matter is that for every
one of these frightening statistics,
there is a child attached to it, and,
on average, the consequences for
each of these youngsters are not
good. Children who grow up in
home where the father is absent
are significantly more likely to do
poorly on almost any measure of
child well-being. For example:


Almost 75 percent of Ameri-
can children who grow up in sin-
gle-parent home will experience
poverty before they turn 11-years-
old, compared to only 20 percent
for families where there are two
parents.
Violent criminals are over-
whelmingly for males who grew
up without fathers. They account
for 72 percent of adolescent mur-
derers and 70 percent of long-
term prison inmates.
Children living in father-absent
homes are also more likely to
be suspended from school, or to
drop out; be treated for an emo-
tional or behavioral problem;
commit suicide as adolescents;
and be victims of child abuse or
neglect.
First Care Family Resource
Center in conjunction with the
National Fatherhood Initiative is
proud to offer the 24/7 Dad Pro-
gram that is designed to help the
dads in our community with the
skills they need to be involved, re-
sponsible, and committed fathers.
The National Fatherhood Initiative
offers the most innovative father-


hood curricula in the country to
help best serve all kinds of fathers
at their points of need.
This program is open to all
fathers and expecting fathers. It
is idea for any father. The 24/7
Dad" is a unique, comprehen-
sive set of fatherhood programs
developed by a team of nationally
and internationally recognized fa-
thering and parenting experts and
with input from fatherhood prac-
titioners. This 12 Week Curricu-
lum began on Thursday, March
16, at First Care Family Resource
Center located at 233 West Av-
enue A, Suite C in Belle Glade in
the Goodwill Plaza. The program
requires a 12 week commitment
and is free. Upon completion of
this program the participant will
receive a Certificate and a $25
Gift Card. Food is served at every
meeting. For more Information

Great American Clean up rallies volunteers


INI/Naji Tobias

Bank opening
The grand opening of National Bank in Pahokee took place
on Tuesday, March 11. The bank is located on the corner
of East First Street and South Lake Avenue in Pahokee.,


With the 200.8 presidential
campaign heating up, Keep Palm
Beach County Beautiful, Inc. is
embarking on a campaign of its
own, joining national nonprofit
Keep America Beautiful (KAB)
in the Great American Cleanup
as they campaign for a cleaner,
greener America. Unlike the
presidential candidates, Keep
Palm Beach County Beautiful,
Inc. is making a rather unusual
campaign promise this year, it
WILL "fight dirty" and focus on
improving Palm Beach County for
all to enjoy.
Here in Palm Beach County
and across the nation, volunteers
will rally to fight dirty streets,
neighborhoods, waterways and
public spaces by removing litter,
greening up parks, schoolyards
and other public spaces, and host-
ing educational events at chosen
schools in the County.
"Finding ways to improve the
nation's communities and our
overall environment is not only
one of Keep America Beautiful's
main objectives, but it's also a


topic that is increasingly top-of-
mind with most Americans," said
Matthew McKenna, president of
Keep America Beautiful. "In its
24th year, the Great American
Cleanup continues to be a vehicle
for volunteers across the country,
driving them to take a hands-on
approach to sustainability by
conducting cleanup, recycling
drives, tree and flower plantings
and other community improve-
ment activities."
"During last year's Great Amer-
ican Cleanup, over 5500 volun-
teers participated in Palm Beach
County picking up over 76 tons of
trash and planting over 700 trees
and plants. We hope to surpass
those numbers this year, said
Lourdes Ferris, Executive Direc-
tor of Keep Palm Beach County
Beautiful, Inc."
The national Great American
Cleanup takes place during the
Spring annually. This year, an ex-
pected 3 million volunteers will
get involved and campaign for
a 'cleaner, greener America' by
participating in 30,000 commu-


nity improvement activities and
educational workshops happen-
ing in over 17,000 communities
nationwide. All will spread the
message of individual responsi-
bility to keep America's commu-
nities clean, green and beautiful.
In Palm Beach County, the official
date, is Saturday, April 19 to coin-
cide closely with Earth Day. There
are also some alternate dates.
Volunteers are encouraged to
visit the Keep Palm Beach County
Beautiful website at www.keepP-
BCbeautiful.org to view the dates
and sites and pre-register or call
(561) 686-6646 for more informa-
tion. All supplies will be provided
and commemorative ball caps
will be given away to volunteers
while supplies last. Community
service hours will be given.
President George W. Bush will
serve as Honorary Chair of the
Great American Cleanup for the
sixth consecutive year. First Lady
Laura Bush will be joining him
as Honorary Chair for the fourth
consecutive year.
America's leading compa-


nies support this campaign for a
cleaner, greener America. The
National Sponsors of the 2008
Great American Cleanup are:
American Honda Motor Co., Inc.,
The Dow Chemical Company,
Firestone Complete Auto Care"
and Tires Plus'", GLAD Force-

pany, Sam's Club, The Scotts

New Hope Charities recog-

nized for nonprofit excellence


WEST PALM BEACH New
Hope Charities received distinc-
tion among area nonprofit agen-
cies by The Center for Nonprofit
Excellence.
Of the 3,500 nonprofit agencies
serving communities throughout.
South Florida, New Hope is one
of only 53 who has successfully
met the standards established by
the Center for Nonprofit Excel-
lence.
. Nearly eight years ago, a coali-
tion of public and private funders
in Palm Beach County created
what has become the Center for
Nonprofit Excellence. Work-
ing with experts in the field, the
funders created a uniform set of
standards for certification of non-
profit agency governance and ad-
ministration, finance and human
resource management. Their
mission is to promote quality and
accountability in the nonprofit
community through leadership
development, education, and
management services. Their ulti-
mate goal is to create the oppor-
tunity for all nonprofit organiza-
tions to achieve their highest level


of success.
Representatives Patricia Allard
and Serena Baldwin presented
the plaque to Board Chairman
Jose "Pepe" Fanjul, Presidents
Lian Fanjul de Azqueta and Father
Patrick O'Neil as well as the other
distinguished members of 'New
Hope Charities Board of pirec-
tors.
"We .view this as an incred-
ible accomplishment," said Jose
"Pepe" Fanjul, Chairman of New
Hope Chairities. "We originally
began New Hope as a grass roots
food distribution program 18
years ago in our mother's garage.
Now through much hard work,
tremendous public support and
an investment in the communities
of Western Palm Beach County ,
we are proud to have grown into
a multi-service family and com-
munity strengthening charity. We
thank the Center for Nonprofit Ex-
cellence for this recognition, we
look forward to living up to -this
honor, and we will continue our
work to improve the lives of those
we serve."

SAVE YOUR VISION MONTH: HEALTHY VISION AT THE COMPUTER
People who sit in front of a computer for long periods of time often encounter a variety
of uncomfortable symptoms. Headaches, neck strain, backaches and wrist pain are com-
mon, but, sadly, the most prevalent symptoms of prolonged computer use-eye strain,
blurred vision and dry eye-are often overlooked. In fact, eye and vision problems are the
most frequently reported health care problems among computer users.
TIPS FOR HEALTHY, COMFORTABLE VISION AT THE COMPUTER
While decreasing time spent at a computer may not be an option, there are ways to max-
imize healthy vision for comfortable use of the computer.
Have a regular comprehensive eye exam to ensure your eyes are healthy and
that you have the correct eyeglass or contact lens prescription (if necessary).
Be certain to tell your optometrist about the computer work you do.
Wear glasses that are specifically designed to function comfortably at the com-
puter. The lenses you wear for day-to-day activities may not be the best for
working at the computer.
SRest the eyes
Blink forcefully
SUse a humidifier
SInstill artificial tears
After you have had a comprehensive eye examination, there are a number of things that
you can do to arrange and use the elements of your workstation to eliminate or minimize
discomfort.
WORKSTATIQlN SETUP FOR COMFORTABLE COMPUTER USE
Feet should be flat on the floor (or on a slightly angled foot rest) with knees
bent close to or greater than 90 degrees.
Chair seat should support the legs without excessive pressure on the back of
the things.
The back should be snug against the seat to fit your spinal contour. Thigh-to-
trunk angle should be 90 degrees or greater.
Wrists and hands should extend nearly straight from the elbow to the home
row of the keyboard.
A commonly preferred work surface height for keyboard use is about 26" as
opposed to the conventional 29" of most tables or desks.
Place the monitor 20" 26" from your eyes, depending on the size of the mon-
itor and individual vision conditions.
The monitor and keyboard should be straight ahead.
Keep the monitor free of fingerprints and dust. Both can reduce clarity.
Place document holders close to the screen within the same viewing dis-
tance.. Keep the keyboard and monitor in line..
Adjust the keyboard tilt angle so that wrists are straight.

HEALTHY COMPUTER USE
Although the visual system faces considerable challenges when using a computer, most
issues can be solved. Remember that problems with the use of the computer cause need-
less discomfort and may rob productivity. Heeding the suggestions made here along with
those made by you r doctor of optometry, will enable you to use your computer comfort-
ably and productively

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Stephen was one of those spe-
cial youth who touched my life.
He was energetic. He was a lead-
er. He had an open heart for the
Lord, and he loved helping make
things happen in the youth group.
And if that wasn't enough, he had
a cute older sister. I couldn't have
asked for much more as a single
young minister.
Around Easter, God blessed
me with a program that Stephen
really took to heart. I gave every-
one an empty Leggs container
(the ones shaped like eggs), and
challenged them to go find some-
thing that symbolized new life and
place it in their "egg". We ended
up with flowers and insects and
all kinds of offerings. Afterwards,
I showed them an empty egg, and
shared with them about the tomb
being empty and how that meant
new life for us all. Stephen liked
the illustration so much that he
started handing out empty eggs
at school, sharing with the recipi-
ents about the empty tomb and
its' meaning. He called his eggs
"resurrection eggs".
Then, Stephen came out of
remission. In six weeks, I saw a
healthy, energetic young man


become a puffy, lethargic mass.
Although the cancer affected Ste-
phen's body, it did not affect his
spirit. He still had a positive out-
look and still loved to share res-
urrection eggs with those around
him.
Stephen eventually slipped
into a coma and was admitted
to the hospital. One day as I was
heading to the church, I got the
inkling to stop at the hospital to
see him. As I went up to the floor,
I met Stephens' dad, who with
tears in his eyes shared, "John,
my son is dying."
With my heart in my throat, I
entered Stephen's room. Stephen
was in a pre-natal position coma,
making whimpering sounds like
a little puppy. Not knowing what
else to do, I held Stephens' hand
and started to pray. I don't know
the time frame, but I suddenly
noticed that the whimpering had
stopped. I looked up and saw Ste-
phen looking at me. I will never
forget his look or what he told
me.
"John, I'm going to be with
Jesus. Take care of my mom and
dad."
A short while later, Stephen
did go to be with Jesus, but his
words of assurance stayed in my
heart. The church was filled to
overflowing with students and


young people giving testimony
after testimony about how Ste-
phen's faith had touched their
lives. Many came with the resur-
rection eggs that Stephen had
given them. One of the resurrec-
tion eggs was even placed in his
coffin. Stephen's body we placed
in the earth, but Stephen's spirit
had already been claimed-he had
gone to be with Jesus.
If you ever happen to be in
Sandy Springs, Ga., stop by North
Springs United Methodist Church.
There you will find a Dogwood
tree blossoming with new life dur-
ing the Easter Season. At its base
is a plaque remembering Stephen
Haight. It's a tribute to a young
man who touched many lives not
only with his resurrection eggs;
but with his resurrection faith.
Because the tomb is empty, we
can have new life. Because the
tomb is empty our lives can be
full. Because the tomb is empty,
we can go forth as people brim-
ming with the resurrection love of
God. Be graceful in spirit, hopeful
in word, faithful in deed. Live for
the risen Christ as Christ lives in
you. And remember, when the
day comes, as people with resur-
rection faith, we can claim and
proclaim with full assurance, "I'm
going to be with Jesus!"


The book, the lamb, and the song!


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church,
Clewiston
Resurrection Sunday, of all
days, should be a time of praise to
Jesus Christ for His mighty victory
over sin and death in our behalf.
This is why our Choir is present-
ing the Musical, "The Old Rugged
Cross Made The Difference". Such
praise is a dominant theme in
heaven. Nowhere in all Scripture
is a more magnificent hym than
John's "Worthy Is The Lamb" in
Revelation 5:9-14.
From the content of John's
Hymn of praise comes the thought
I would like to share with you.
From this chapter John tells of a
mysterious book and a mighty
Lamb, and a magnificent song.
The book that John saw was
sealed and this caused him to
weep. Some books in God's li-
brary include: all the deeds of
personal human history; all the
+ demands of God's laws; all the ex-
perience of God's beloved; all the
names of those redeemed by the
Blood (Ps. 69:28; Gal. 3:10; Mal.
3:16; Phil. 4:3). Some books bring
us sorrrow: sorrow of unresolved
inequities, sorrow of unknown or
fearful future; and, sorrow of un-
r-.rtin nlr rtinn Thn'e enrrrnwAr


all mankind's sorrow. A part from
the Lamb and the song there is
sorrow; and even the Bible itself
is a sealed book apart from Jesus.
But John's story does not end
with weeping.
"Weep not! An elder lifts
John's vision, "Behold the Lion!
Lion, Lamb, Root Judah! Slain
in meekness, and patience, now
Christ is seen as mighy and pow-
erful, striking terror to the hearts
of His enemies while bringing
comfort to His people. One
nature of the Lamb stands out
above others, it has been slain!
At the throne, identified with God
himself, it yet bears the marks of
having died! The heart of Resur-
rection truth is very near this
point! The Lamb, identified as "of
Judah" and yet having seven eyes
and seven horns of the sevenfold
Spirit of God, is able to open the
sealed book!
The Song is begun by the re-
deemed (vs 9). The nev. song is
of Redemption! And while the
angels are quick to join in praise,
they do not have part in the very
firs chorus, for the heart of Resur-
rection is not the return of sprint-
ime, the eternal conservation
of life, or the beauty of flowers
and birdsong, but it is the fact of
bloody battle and stunning victo-


ry, of alienated mankind brought
.into fellowship with a holy God.
And at the very foot of the throne
becoming a great family that in-
cludes every tongue, people,
and nation. This song, .picked up
by heaven's chorus, praises the
Lamb because He alone is worthy
to open the sealed book. Christ is
our key to the mysteries of faith,
of death, eternity, and redemp-
tion! The song. is actually begun
before the books are opened; We
may praise Jesus now; and even
before we know the future, we
may know Him with' certainty!
And we may begin now, joining
the myriads around the throne
as we sing: "CROWN HIM...the
Lamb upon the Throne!"
But before we sing a hymn of
praise to Christ, are there sealed
books that cause you to weep? Is
the Bible a sealed book to you?
Do you have a deep concern
about death arid about the future?
'ou can'have vicor', in Jesus by
believing the Gospel, repenting of
sins, confession His name before
men, and being baptized for re-
mission of sins to receive the Holy
Spirit and begin a New Life! The
message of Resurrection Sunday
is "Weep not! The Lion of the
tribe of Judah has prevailed!

Easter-He's alive; because of it, we're alive too


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
She had always been a
"bleeder" with the slightest cut
meaning a possible hemorrhage.
The day came when she needed
surgery that was unavoidable
and the risks were great. With
the proper medications and care
to control bleeding, and possi-
bilities explained, the operation
was scheduled. She told me
about waking up in the recovery
room and shouting "I'm alive!
I'm alive!" and I can certainly
imagine the excitement and joy.
She was on the other side of
death and there was a new and
better life ahead. This has always
been a "resurrection story" for
me. It is also our story-the story
of what Easter is all about.
The biblical account is about
two women who do not expect
to find their Lord alive (Mark
16:1ff) and go to His tomb to
anoint a dead body. They are
sure He is dead; they bring spices
to help with preservation of the
person who once was among
them. The Lord meets and
greets them,(Matthew 28:9) and
the two women "Mary Magde-
lene and "the other Mary," pro-
claimed to all they encountered
"He's alive, He's alive!" With
that news, there is the promise
that we too shall live with Him,
that we too are alive with Him.
There is an account in John's
gospel (chapter 11, V. Iff) that is
a prelude to the Easter story; it
is about raising Lazarus from the
dead. I've descended into that
tomb in Bethany where he was
supposed to have lain, dead, for
four days and can envision the
finality of death in that darkened,
damp, underground cave about
two stories below the earth. If he
was there for four days, Lazarus
was really dead! The story sur-
rounding his death reports that
his sisters, Martha and Mary, met
the Lord and told Him, "Lord, if
you were here, my brother would
not have died (John 11:21)." He
has died, though, and was dead
before Jesus arrived. Jesus went
to the tomb, calls for Lazarus to
come out, and he literally returns
to life after being dead for four
days. This is a prelude of things
to come, so that the Marthas and
Marys of the world may not be
as surprised when they see the.
risen Lord and acknowledge
"He's alive!, He's alive!" I've
shared a new life with many; in


their getting married, in their be-
ing healed, in their overcoming
seemingly impossible obstacles,
in their return from wars, in the
births of their children, in find-
ing successes in careers, in the
changes brought by gradua-
tions; all gifts of a new life and
all celebrations of an "Easter."
These things are all preludes to
things to come; life does not end
with life here but continues be-
yond this life: that's the story and
promise of Easter. The little "res-
urrections" that we see when
life is made better, when we are
made whole, when renewed,
when given another opportuni-
ty; all of these things point to the
life to come when at last this life
seems over but in reality is only
the beginning.
A great doctor was once
asked why he underook to study
medicine. He replied that he ob-
served every creature sought to
continue life; even the smallest
one-celled creature would sub-


divide when part of it was dying
so that life might continue. He
said that this witness was a key
for him; life was intended to go
on and he wanted to be a part
of it.
The Christian story of Easter
is that story; that life is intended
to go on, and that God has a
part in it for each of us. The gift
of Easter is that it is a personal
story; each person who believes
will find new life and new hope.
The Lord has created us to seek
life, to preserve it, to respect it, to
cherish it. He also promises that
it does not come to an end even
when it stops on Earth. The gift
and promise of Easter is God's
sign to us; He's alive and be-
cause of it, we're alive too for
all eternity, forever. May you have
a happy and blessed Easter, and
share a special time in your lives
with all those who are special to
you!

"Last year, while participating
in the Marshall Foundation proj-
ects, I was inspired to continue
working with them for my Eagle

Foundation's efforts to improve
wetland environments, and, be-
cause of that inspiration, I am
considering working for the envi-
ronment as my life's work," said

the scouts spent time weeding
and maintaining some of the
thousands of young trees already

Mullins
Continued From Page 1
of years I've had on the job and
being in this community for so
long. With the Glades being a
migrant area, some people might
be only able to work for a season.
When the farming season is over
and families just stay in the area,
they don't know the different re-
sources that are available around
here. I provide an ear to listen to
the families when I come to their
homes. The parents, as well as
the children, are able to tell us all
of their needs in detail.
Q: March is declared National
Social Worker Month. What does
the importance of the declaration
mean to you?
A: I think it's important be-
cause it will give the community
an idea of what we actually do.
The community has an oppor-
tunity to see what resources are
available and see how we can
assist them with their problems.
People would know where to go
and who they would go to for as-
sistance.
Q: You're a mother of two
children, Johnny Mullins Jr. and

the second shot and the suspect
saw the officer, fleeing in the op-
posite direction."
According to the lieutenant, a
K-9 officer and other deputies fol-
lowed the suspect down South-
west 10th Street and apprehend-
ed him.
The suspect, who was bitten
by a K-9 dog, was transported to
Glades General Hospital for ob-
servation.
The suspect has been charged
with attempted murder and
armed burglary to a conveyance.
The Palm Beach County Fire
Rescue transported the victim to
Palm West Hospital and later air-
lifted to Delray Community Hos-
pital for observation.
Richard- Harris, who was cam-
paigning for a commissioner's
seat at the time, is saddened by
the situation.
"I feel sorryfor this communi-
ty," Rev. Harris said. "The citizens
have turned on each other with
guns. There are people who are
creating an unsafe environment
+ for everyone and it definitely has
to stop."
:The incident is still under in-
vestigation, as no other details
were released as of press time.


Cop
Continued From Page 1
The COP observers will be
required to patrol the area for a
minimum of two hours a week
and 12 hours a month, according
to Deputy Sheriff Steve Baglietto,
the training officer for volunteer-
ing services.
"I think the volunteers learned
something from the class and it's
fabulous that they're volunteering
their time to help in the commu-
nity and work with the sheriff's
office," Deputy Baglietto said.
COP meetings will be held
once a month at the District Five
office in Belle Glade, which will
allow the volunteers to gain fur-
ther knowledge in such areas as

$17 million 'Tobaw
New campaign ignites
throughout the state
of Florida


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) has
launched a $17 million statewide
social marketing and public rela-
tions anti-tobacco campaign the
largest in a decade.
The multi-faceted Tobacco
Free Florida campaign showcases
print, television, radio and online
advertising; and features cutting
edge interactive platforms, com-
munity events, educational out-
reach and branded programs.
Partnerships with renowned
brands are expanding the vast
reach and impact of this vital
campaign to combat the perva-
sive problem of tobacco use in
the Sunshine State where each
year, more than 28,000 Floridians
die from smoking. 1
Targeting the Florida market
with particular emphasis on the
11-17 age group, adults 18-24,
small businesses, chronic disease
sufferers, pregnant women, low-
income households and parents,
the campaign will touch millions
statewide.
"Tobacco Free Florida pro-
rnotes healthy habits among


INI/Naji Tobias
Vivian Mullins, a longtime representative for the Department
of Children and Families (DCF), has been recognized for her
efforts in improving the lives of people in the Glades area.
March is also known as National Social Workers Month, ac-


cording to DCF officials.
Janay Mullins. How much have
your children had an impact on
the teenagers in the program?
A: Johnny is deceased. With
Johnny, he was the type of child
that grew on to people. I have
pictures of some of the boys in
foster care that played different


sports with him in high school.
They all looked up to Johnny. My
children never felt that they were
giving too much love to the kids
in the program. When Johnny
passed in 2003, some of the kids
came to me and spent time with
our family. That made me feel


great. I knew that I made the right
choice to get into the field of so-
cial work. The kids and I bonded
through what each side brought
to the table. Janay, who is a teach-
er at Pahokee Middle-Senior High
School, has a good rapport with
the children also.
Q: Who has had the greatest
impact on your life?
A: My mother, Minnie McKin-
zie, was a very hard worker. She
taught me good values like treat-
ing people the way I would want
to be treated. I was taught to re-
spect my elders and what I set
out to do in life, do-it to my very
best. My husband (Johnny Mul-
lins Sr.) has always been a good
listener. He encourages me and
pushes me to do whatever I felt
in my mid to achieve. In the end,
I have gotten all of my strength
from God. He gives me the abil-
ity to go on and have courage in
whatever I do.
Q: What is your favorite
quote?
A: "If you can believe it, you
can achieve it."

The first campaign ad, target-
ing adult smokers, depicts a child
playing catch by himself as a cau-
tionary voiceover warns of smok-
ing's annual death toll 31,000
children are left fatherless.2
Launched during Super Bowl
XLII, the highest rated champi-
onship game in a decade, the
commercial surpassed all expec-


statewide events that campaign
teams will visit.
In addition, the site features all
the interactive components of the
campaign, free music downloads
from Florida bands and broadcast
commercials.
Given that 90 percent of smok-
ers begin before the age of 18,
and 87 percent of teenagers are
online, the campaign reaches
this key demographic by using
non-traditional marketing meth-
ods and taking advantage of the
tremendous popularity of on-


crime prevention in the Glades
area and promote a better rela-
tionship between citizens and
law enforcement officers.
"I am very excited about the
potential that this program will
have for the Glades region," Cap-
tain Silva said. "It's taken a lot
of work to get to this point and
we're looking forward to having
positive results."
The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office is always looking for
new volunteers willing to give
back to their community.
