Wilson named new BG mayor


Regains role after a
four-year stint ended
in a 2006 election

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE At the begin-
ning of the April 7 commission
meeting, Steve Wilson was se-
lected by the majority of the city
commissioners to become Belle
Glade's new mayor.
Mayor Wilson, who replaces
Donald D. Garrett as the city's


mayor, gained the position by a
3-to-2 vote after Commissioner
Michael C. Martin made the mo-
tion for it to be possible.
Commissioner Shelly S. Miller
seconded the motion, while both
Commissioner Gwendolyn Asia-
Holley and Vice-Mayor Mary S.
Kendall opposed the action.
The new mayor regains his
role after being voted out of of-
fice in the 2006 elections against
Commissioner Miller, which he
lost by only 29 votes.
In Mayor Wilson's first stint as
a commissioner, he was selected


as a mayor in 2002; his time as a
mayor lasted for four years.
"In the past, when Steve was
the mayor, I thought he was
good with facilitating meetings,"
Commissioner Martin said as he
explained his reasoning for the
decision.
"With his past experience,
I thought he would be the best
selection for us."
In an interesting twist, how-
ever, just prior to Mayor Wilson's
selection by the majority of the
commissioners, Commissioner
Asia-Holley made a motion to


nominate Vice-Mayor Kendall as
the new mayor.
It was not approved by the
majority of the commission-
ers, as the Commissioners Mar-
tin and Miller voted against the
nomination.
Of course, Vice-Mayor Ken-
dall voted for the selection and
the eventual new mayor cast the
deciding vote against it, resulting
in another 3-to-2 vote.
"Apparently, the wishes of the
city have been granted," Vice-
Mayor Kendall said.
"The two commissioners


have come with the marching
orders from the electorate to
make this possible. There's noth-
ing I can do except to continue
to serve in my position as effec-
tively as possible."
The vice-mayor was unani-
mously selected by the commis-
sioner to serve in her role, where
she has been since being chosen
in 2007.
Commissioner Asia-Holley
was a consensus pick to serve as
the city's treasurer.

Dead body found



in canal by K-9


Discovery made
after a K-9 dog walk
break

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE A Monday
afternoon dog walk on a col-
lege campus ended in a star-
tling discovery.
The Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office informs that a
dead man was found in a canal
near Palm Beach Community
College, April 7.
According to the sheriff's
office, a K-9 deputy walked his
dog on the PBCC campus at
about 5:40 p.m. when he came
upon the body.
The K-9 deputy and his dog
were reportedly walking near


the southwest edge of the col-
lege's property line at the time.
The Violent Crimes Task
Force has ruled the victim's
death as a homicide.
The victim, 39-year-old
Joseph Jackson, reportedly
suffered at least one gunshot
wound to the upper body re-
gion.
"What I understand right
now is that the deceased per-
son was known to the Violent
CrimesTask Force and that the
individual was killed earlier in
the day," said Teri Barbera, the
spokeswoman for the sheriff's
office.
"Other than that, there's
nothing else I know at this
time."
The Violent Crimes Task
Force is still investigating the

Minivan collides


into dump truck


Victim's injuries are
serious but appear to
be non life-threatening

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES A collision, be-
tween a minivan and a dump
truck took place on Wednes-
day, March 26.
The accident happened
at the intersection of S.R. 80
and S.R. 700 at approximately
2 p.m., not far from 20-Mile
Bend.


According to information
provided by the Florida High-
way Patrol, Renee Damms, the
driver of a 1997 Chevrolet mini-
van, was traveling westbound
on S.R. 80.
The driver of a 1990 Ford
dump truck, Jose Fernandez,
33, was driving south on S.R.
700 after entering the intersec-
tion with a green traffic light,
officials said.
Officials with the highway
patrol concluded that the mini-
van driver failed to stop for a

BELLE GLADE It was a spe-
cial moment for Aleigh Miller,
to say the least.
After being crowned the
winner of the 2008 Harvest
Queen Pageant, the 16-year-old
was pleasantly surprised Satur-
day night.
The coronation of this year's
Harvest Queen, sponsored by
the Belle Glade Lions Club and
Palm Beach Community Col-
lege, was witnessed by over
300 people at the Dolly Hand
Center.
"I'm shaking right now,
I can't believe it and it was
completely unexpected," the
Glades Day School junior said.
"I thought everyone did well."
Fifteen contestants par-
ticipated in the pageant and
it seemed as if any of them
would have been deserving of
the honor. ./


As always, the contestants
were stunning as they graced
the stage.
Michael Miller, the pageant's
master of ceremonies, was on
hand to present each of the
contestants with interview
questions.
A member of National
Honor Society, the Journalism
Club, the Rotary Club, Glades
Day's varsity cheerleading team
and a volunteer of the school's
blood bank, it's no surprise that
Aleigh was selected.
Now, Aleigh has the distinc-
tion of following the footsteps
of Kayla Collier, the 2007 win-'
ner.
"I think it's a great honor to
go behind Kayla," Aleigh said.
"I have a lot to live up to be-
cause everywhere Kayla went,
she represented the Glades
area well."
Aleigh also has the distinc-
tion of joining her sister, 21-


year-old Summer Miller, as a
Harvest Queen winner. Sum-
mer was the pageant's winner
in 2001.
"I'm very proud of my little
sister," Summer said after con-
gratulating Aleigh with a hug. "I
knew she was going to do great
and now, a lot of more doors
will be opened for her."
Belle Glade Commissioner
Shelly Miller, the mother of
both the 2001 and 2008 Harvest
Queen winners, couldn't agree
more.
In the pageant's 45-year his-
tory, which started in 1954, the
only other sister tandem that
can lay claim to the Harvest
Queen title are Stephanie and
Emily Cavinee. The sisters won
the pageant in 1992 and 1995,
respectively.
Sarah Anderson was this
year's first runner-up, while

Children's Day Picnic at Rardin Park


'It takes a whole
community to raise
a healthy child.'

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES There's nothing
like having a picnic under the
sun.
That's exactly what hap-
pened on April 4, when about
800 children attended the
Glades Children's Picnic at Rar-
din Park.
As part of the 13th Annual
Children's Week which began
on March 30 and concluded on
April 6, more than 15 area day-


care facilities which came out
in support of the event.
There were also 70 orga-
nizations on hand to support
the cause, including the Palm
Beach County Fire Rescue, The
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office and the cities of Belle
Glade, South Bay and Pahokee.
In total, over 1,000 people
attended the special event.
"Children are our most valu-
able treasures," said Autrie Wil-
liams, the family services coor-
dinator for PEPPI Head Start.
"We need parents who are in-
terested in children and quality
care. It takes a whole commu-
nity to raise a healthy child."
For the fun-filled event, the


children, ranging in ages from
I to 5, enjoyed a host of games,
including an egg hunt, and face
painting activities. They enjoyed
a hearty lunch, which included
hot dogs, corn, baked beans,
and a variety of drinks.
Not only that, some of the
day-care organizations ate
lunch in a classic picnic-style
fashion, complete with a picnic
basket.
Though it turned out to be an
enjoyable time for the children,
a very serious issue regarding
child care was addressed by the
adults during the event.
According to Tana Ebbole,

The 2008 Pahokee Military Ball
was held on Friday, March 7th in
the high school cafeteria from 7
to 11 P.M.
The theme for this year's ball
was "Ace of Hearts."
The colors were red, white,
silver, and black and featured bal-
loons and streamers in these col-
ors and many, many red hearts.
Dress for the evening was the Air
Force uniform for the guys and
the girls wore their finest gowns.
The doors to the Mess opened
a 7 P.M. with the ringing of chimes
by cadet Major Talissia Johnson
who served as Madame Vice.
The cadets and guests proceeded
through a receiving line made
up of members of the head table
which included Pahokee mayor
J.P. Sasser.
The formal part of the pro-
gram lasted about an hour and
was orchestrated by the Pahokee
AFJROTC group commander, ca-
det Lieutenant Colonel Alejandra
Vazquez who served as the POM
(President of the Mess).
There were several toasts
with Welches' sparkling grape
juice. They included toasts to the
President, to veterans who have
served our country, and a special
toast to those who have made the
ultimate sacrifice to defend our
freedom.
The royal court was crowned
after the completion of the toasts.
A freshman, sophomore, and
junior prince and princess were
crowned.
Seniors Francisco Prieto and
Esmeralda Rojas were crowned
king and queen of the Ball.
After the coronation there was
eating and dancing until 11 P.M.
Music, entertainment, and prizes
were provided by Glass Produc-
tions in a show titled "What's the
Deal."
The Pahokee Military Ball is a
co-curricular activity that stimu-
lates cadet esprit de corps and
provides experience in Air Fotce
customs and traditions.
Co-curricular activities are
those functions cadets help
plan, and they serve to augment
AFJROTC classroom and Leader-
ship Education requirements.
Formal military dinners are
a tradition in all branches of the
United States armed services.
The tradition is rooted in antiquity
from pre-Christ Roman Legions,
second century Viking warlords,
King Arthur's knights, and feasts

On March 7, the Military Ball, hosted by the Pahokee High School Air Force JROTC, was held
at the Pahokee High School cafeteria. Here are all of the guests, brought along by the mem-
bers of the Pahokee AFJROTC.

to honor victories and achieve-
ments.
The traditions became more
formalized by British soldiers who
brought the custom to colonial
America and adopted by George


Washington's continental army.
The Air Force Dining-In cus-
tom probably began in the 1930s
with General H.H. "Hap" Arnold's
"Wing-dings."
A Dining-In includes only mili-


tary members. A Dining-Out in-
cludes spouses nd guests.
The Military Ball is further
modified to allow all females to
wear formal gowns rather than
the military uniform.

Girls flag football taking center stage


Girls flag football taking center stage


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
GLADES Football is currently
springing ahead, but right now,
the girls are taking center stage.
Got that, boys?
Flag football, a girls spring
sport, is a refreshing option for
those who don't want to run
track, play softball or join the
tennis team. It's also a chance to
show how tough the girls can ac-
tually be.
For both the Pahokee Lady
Blue Devils and Glades Central
Lady Raiders, who squared off
for competition last Wednesday
evening in Pahokee, they would
rather be playing tackle football.
But the rules of the game won't
allow it.
So both teams are relegated to
playing football in a more finesse-
styled fashion, which could be
why both teams have losing re-
cords right now.
'But, really, even if their records
or score margins don't show it,
both teams play hard to the whis-
tle and just leave it all out on the
field.
Lady Raiders moving
ahead
Samuel Curry, a first-year
coach, considers the program's
2008 season a great bonding ex-
perience. Though they have a
1-3 record as of March 31 they
defeated Okeechobee but, lost
to Royal Palm Beach, Welling-
ton and Seminole Ridge once
you actually see this team play
a game, you'll see that this team
has meshed together nicely,
which will likely bode well for
next season.
"This team is young, talented
and has a great future ahead of
them," Coach Curry said. "The
girls stick together regardless
of the circumstances. If they're
down in a game, they always
go full speed ahead, no matter
what."
For instance, Rodkeshia Joiner,
a junior quarterback and safety,
led the Lady Raiders to a couple
of first downs on their opening
drive against Royal Palm Beach in
their March 27, contest at Effie C.
Grear Field.
Though the drive stalled, Rod-
keshia played tenacious defense
throughout the game and snared
an interception in the second
half, which put them in position
to notch their second win.
Though the Lady Raiders
wound up on the losing end,
23-9, they grew from the experi-
ence, realizing that its important
to not miss opportunities to pull
flags on defense and communi-
cate on both sides of the ball.
There are a total of 21 play-
ers on the team, with only five
seniors. For that reason alone,
the coaching staff second-year

efitted most of their opponents,
which are from the coast, accord-
ing to Brian Crawford, the second-
year defensive coach.
"We're an inexperienced team
that has had some bad breaks in
games this season," Coach Craw-
ford said. "The team plays strong
at the end of games. Our problem
is that we get nervous at the be-
ginning at games, but if we come
out confident early, we can com-
pete with any team."
For one, Coach Crawford
would like to see his 15 girls learn
the basics well enough blocking,
catching, pitching the ball and flag


pulling, to name a few fundamen-
tal skills. With those basics intact,
combined with proper condition-
ing, Coach Crawford believes that
the flag football program could be
good enough to compete in state
tournaments in the future.
Ray Hamilton, the first-year
offensive coach, knows what it
takes to win a flag football cham-
pionship, as he won six city flag
football championships in his-
hometown of Tampa.
With the feeling that flag foot-
ball doesn't get the same attention
as track and field, Coach Ham-
ilton wants the program to be
established as one that would at-
tract girls who normally wouldn't
come out for spring sports.
Here are some athletes to look
out for this season:
Freshman LaQuosha
Wright is a wide receiver
and linebacker who is
considered a great athlete
who can catch and pull
flags with the best girls in
flag fotball.
Freshmen Karenza Harvey
(middle linebacker) and
Wilnesha Jones (rusher)
are both team captains,
who are described as an
aggressive players who
display coverage abil-
ity, with Karenza calling
all the plays for their de-
fense.
The Lady Blue Devils
competed against Royal
Palm Beach on Tuesday
and Glades Central yes-
terday.
But if you couldn't see
those games, you could
check out the Lady Blue
Devils' remaining games,
which are as follows:
April 15, at 7 p.m. Home

April 17, at 7 p.m. Home

"Winning, plus the current
assembly of girls gaining experi-
ence, could possibly improve the
image of the program," Coach
Hamilton said.

Tobacco free campaign joins forces with comic book heroes


The Tobacco Free Florida
Campaign is aggressively target-
ing the approximately 1.5 million
youth ages 11 to 17 with the cam-
paign's cigarette and smokeless
tobacco prevention message. The
campaign's comprehensive ap-
proach includes youth-focused
ads, in-school PSAs, a custom
limited edition Justice League
comic book, and online initiatives
such as downloadable Smoke-
Free Songs, campaign sites on
Facebook and MySpace and a
YouTube video contest.
Recognizing the resurgence
of comic book popularity among
youth, the campaign has part-,
nered with DC Comics the larg-
est English language publisher of
comic books in the world with
the "No Smoke Without Fire"


custom comic book featuring the
Justice League Super Hero team
of Superman, Batman, Robin,
Wonder Woman, The Flash and
Green Lantern. DC Comics' most
popular characters battle cigarette
smoke-generating machines and
empower youth to avoid the dan-
gers of the deadly habit. Comic
books will be distributed to mid-
dle school students across Florida
and featured on the Tobacco Free
Florida website (www.tobaccof-
reeflorida.com). On Free Comic
Book Day (May 3), participating
comic book stores across Flor-
ida will offer free copies of "No
Smoke.Without Fire" to youth
and parents.
Teens are among the top
Internet users who engage in
online chats, e-mail and discus-


sion forums. The Tobacco Free
Florida campaign created profile
pages for the two largest social
networks on the web Face-
book and MySpace. These social
networking websites, which
are twice as likely to be popular
among smokers ages 18-24, give
users the opportunity to affiliate
themselves with the Tobacco Free
Florida campaign by becoming
a "fan" (Facebook) or a "friend"
(MySpace), post their comments
and connect with others who are
campaign fans and friends. After
only a few weeks, the Facebook
site has accumulated more than
4,000 fans.
Since more than, half of on-
line teens download music,
the campaign created Smoke-
Free Songs, which provides free


downloadable songs from non-
smoking Florida bands includ-
ing Maida Vale, Sarah Mac Band,
The Twelfth Chapter, Jonny Diaz
and Paul Clayton. New songs will
be continuously added to www.
tobaccofreeflorida.com/smoke-
freesongs.
The campaign has also part-
nered with YouTube to sponsor
the YouCare video contest where
entrants share why they don't
smoke. The contest allows users
to vote for their favorite submis-
sion and the top 50 videos will be
shown on the first ever statewide
On-Demand channel devoted ex-
clusively to the campaign, reach-
ing more than two million sub-
scribers to Comcast and Bright
House Networks Digital Cable. A
panel of judges will pick the grand


prize winner who will receive an
Apple iMac computer and an
iPod touch.
Smokeless tobacco is also a
serious health issue. To educate
youth on the dangers, the cam-
paign created an ad series depict-
ing baseball cards with players
named Billy "Jawbreaker" Smith
and "Silent" Evan Jackson. The
ads highlight hard-hitting statis-
tics including that chew users are
50 times more likely to get cancer
of the cheek and gums and that
smokeless tobacco contains 28
cancer-causing chemicals and
three times the nicotine as ciga-
rettes. These will run in Sports
Illustrated and the Florida High
School Playbook.
Last year in Florida, 14.7 per-
cent of high school students and


6.1 percent in middle school re-
ported they had smoked cigarettes
once in the past 30 days. The To-
bacco Free Florida Campaign in
partnership with the Florida De-
partment of Education is targeting
these youth through the distribu-
tion of an anti-tobacco PSA on the
Florida Knowledge Network po-
tentially reaching 600,000 middle
school students. The message is
presented by teens and includes
the short- and long-term effects
of smoking, the costs of the habit,
and that you don't have to smoke
to fit in.

Glades General ventilator associated Health News in Brief


pneumonia rates reduced to zero


BELLE GLADE-As hospital-
acquired infections gain, more
attention in the media, Glades
General Hospital (GGH)
achieved a Ventilator Associated
Pneumonia (VAP) rate of 0 per-
cent for all of 2007. VAP, a lung
infection, is the primary cause
of death among patients who
acquire infections in the hospi-
tal. VAP occurs in patients who
must receive mechanical venti-
lation for conditions other than
pneumonia. According to the
National Healthcare Safety Net-
work Report for 2006 released
June 2007 by the Association
for Professionals in Infection
Control, the national VAP aver-
age is 4.2 percent.
According to Erin Etheridge,
RN, BSN, the Infection Control
practitioner at GGH, "The staff's
dedication to safety protocols
strongly contributed to the elim-
ination of VAP and reduction of
overall infection rates. These
statistics are proof of the con-
tinued commitment to infection
prevention in our hospital," said
Ms. Etheridge.
A ventilator is used when a
patient can no longer breathe
on his own or when he cannot
breath quickly or deeply enough
to maintain life-sustaining blood
oxygen levels. Glades General
is dedicated to obtaining newer,
safer and more efficient technol-
ogy, and this philosophy played
a role in the elimination of VAP
at GGH. In December 2005,
GGH purchased five Respiron-
ics Esprit ventilators, which are
used in conjunction with non-


invasive cardiac output moni-
tors. These monitors commu-
nicate with the ventilators and
provide vital information to the
therapist and physician, en-
abling them to reduce the time
on the ventilator by accurately
monitoring a patient's ability to
breathe more effectively on his
own. This information that was
previously only available from
an invasive central line cath-
eter inserted into the heart but
is now available non-invasively,
without harm or trauma to the
ventilated patient. The combi-
nation of utilizing innovative
equipment such as the new
ventilators and the use of bed-
side clinical monitoring helped
Glades General to achieve the
elimination of VAP. Glades Gen-
eral is the only acute-care hospi-
tal in Palm Beach County with
the non-evasive cardiac output
monitoring system.
The rates can be attributed
to the institution of the "VAP
bundle," which is a set of in-
terventions specifically for the
prevention of VAP and is seen
as the key to the hospital's ac-
complishment. These interven-
tions include: preventing blood
pooling and clotting (usually the
legs) in a patient who is immo-
bile; preventing production of
excess stomach acid; keeping
the head of the patient's bed el-
evated at an angle of 30 degrees
or more, which decreases the
chance of aspiration and allows
more natural blood perfusion
and gas diffusion of the lungs;
and defining periods where se-
dation is turned off or reduced


significantly to assess whether
the patient can start the process
of being weaned off ventilator
assistance. A hospital-wide ef-
fort contributed to the success
of the interventions. By utilizing
national guidelines and educat-
ing physicians and nurses, the
number of patient ventilator
days began decreasing.
In 2006, VAP prevention be-
came a National Safety Goal
established by the Joint Com-
mission of Health. GGH's com-
mitment to educating the staff
and placing protocols in place
has provided patients the .very
best care. By eliminating VAP's,
Glades General has decreased
mortality rates and reduced
costly length of stay in the ICU
and the hospital. In 2008 to
date, GGH has maintained a 0
percent VAP rate.
Donald M. Berwick, MD, MPP,
the Presjdent and CEO of the In-
stitute for Healthcare Improve-
ment (IHI) in Cambridge, Mass.
commented that "The achieve-
ment at GGH of a VAP rate of 0
percent for the whole of 2007 is
superb work. I cannot overstate
how much it helps IHI, our mis-
sion, and hospitals all over the
nation to have examples like
this to draw on. GGH's continu-
ing leadership across the whole
frontier of patient care quality
and safety adds hope and con-
fidence about what is possible
for us all."

I ' t


Don't worry, be happy, live longer


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
It all began back in the mid-
60s when some 7,000 students at
the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill took the Minnesota
Multiphasic Personality Inventory,
a test that, among other things,
measured the participants' ten-
dency to be optimistic or pessi-
mistic. Of that group, 1,630 were
found by the test to be clearly pes-
simists and 923 to be clearly op-
timists. The rest fell somewhere
in the middle. Over the next four
decades, 476 of those who had
taken the test died, from causes
ranging from accident to illness to
suicide to homicide.
By tracking and collating all
this information, researchers de-
termined that the pessimists had
a significantly greater likelihood
of dying sooner from any cause
than did the optimists.
While many of us are not pes-
simists by inclination, we can be


pessimistic in the worries we face
every day. If we stop to think about
it, most of us don't live our days in
anxiety over how global warming
will affect us or fret about how or
when the world will end. Most of
our concerns are over more per-
sonal issues such as, "Will I get
a good report from the doctor?"
"Will my kids stay out of trouble?",
"Am I being a good parent?" "Will
I be able to pay my bills?"
"Can any of us by worrying
add a single hour to our span of
life?" The question is as timely to-
day as when Jesus posed it over
2,000 years ago (Matthew 6:24).
Does worrying do us any good?
Lord knows, we've put huge
amounts of time and energy into
worrying about all sorts of things
that might happen, most of which
never actually come to pass. Hav-
ing burned through all that anxi-
ety, what do we have to show
for it? Have we, as Jesus asked,
added even a single hour to our
lives? Probably we've taken away
hours.


Think back to the study men-
tioned above. The study's con-
clusion suggests that Jesus was
right. But even more, it reveals a
surprising flip side to that argu-
ment, suggesting that not being a
chronic worrier can add not only
an hour, but perhaps even years
to a lifespan.
When Jesus posed this ques-
tion about adding to our span
through worry, He went on to
make clear that what He was call-
ing for was for us to trust God. He
pointed to the birds that do not
sow or reap the fields but are fed
by our heavenly Father. He point-
ed to the flowers that do not toil
or spin but are clothed in beauty
as well by our heavenly Father.
It's important to understand
that His words were directed to
people who still had to sow, reap,
toil and to spin. Jesus wasn't
telling them to stop doing those
tasks; He simply wanted them to
understand that their lives were
a lot more than the sum of their


sowing, reaping, toiling, spinning,
or the length of their FaceBook
profile. Jesus is not Dr. Phil giv-
ing us a prescription for how to
avoid anxiety. His main point is:
"Strive first for the kingdom of
God and His righteousness, and
all these things will be given to
you as well.
None of this is to say that we
won't have some normal worries.
We can't love someone without
worrying about threats to his or
her well-being. We can't be sen-
sitive persons without occasional
concern that we haven't done all
we should. We can't listen to the
news without some uneasiness
about the direction many things
in the world appear to be going.
But we can be focused enough
on the things of God that we're
able to relax about our priorities
and have confidence in God's
providential care. That's why, in-
stead of wringing our hands in
despair, we clasp our hands in
prayer.


Entitlement and bearing the heat of the day


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St.Martin's Church,
Clewiston
At a recent meeting, two city
leaders spoke about regional
problems.
One of them had to do with an
age-old problem-stealing. All too
often it's useless to ask somebody
"Why did you do that?" when
they are caught doing something
that is wrong. Sometimes, they
don't know themselves and to
try go get an answer when a per-
son doesn't know it is a waste of
time.
Maybe there are some indica-
tors out there' that deserve our
consideration. The old parable,
two thousand- years old now,
about the laborers in the vine-
yard (Matthew 20: ff) is about a
householder who goes out and
seeks laborers. He finds them and
they agree to work for a certain
amount. There is still work to be
done, so he goes out later and
hires others, making the same
agreement about paying them.
When the day is almost over, he
hires the last of his crew; same
agreement. When it's time to pay
everyone at the ,end of the day,
they are all given equal wages.
This leads to grumbling and
complaining; they were all paid


even if some had borne the heat
of the day and others worked only
an hour. They complain about the
"inequality" of the system, but
the householder reminds them of
their agreement and tells them as
well "Am I not allowed to do what
I choose with what belongs to
me? Or do you begrudge my gen-
erosity? (Matthew 20:15)." In our
times, I see what must be some
feelings of "entitlement" when
people try to level the playing field
in their eyes by immoral or illegal
actions. Many of our businesses
have to hire extra personnel to
deal with retail theft. I wonder
what makes people think they are
entitled to take things from stores
without paying for them?
Is it because they feel others
have more advantages and they
have been somehow deprived? Is
it because something is lacking in
their lives and they will make up
for their felt shortcomings by at-
tacking others who they think can
afford the loss? I had someone
tell me once that I had an "easy
and fun" job and "I'd like to do
what you do." I told the person
that they could also share in my
life it might not be as "easy" or
"fun" as thought, but if they felt a
call, were willing to go to college
and then seminary, and wished
to enter a ministry, it could be
theirs. The response was "Oh...!


and a comment about something
easier followed. There was a cer-
tain amount of the "heat of the
day" to be borne on the way to
the ministry, and ever afterward;
they were "entitled" to a ministry
but it might not be as it looked. To
be entitled to what others seem to
have also requires some bearing
the "heat of the day" and then we
can sit back and enjoy the fruits of
our labors with everyone's bless-
ings. One of the neighborhoods
where I lived was served by a
large chain store. The store was
closed one day by management
because of too much loss and
"disappearance" of stock. People
who relied on the store being in
their neighborhood were hurt; es-
pecially those with transportation
problems. The employees who
worked there were now out of a
job.
Others were left without a
source for the brand names and
specialproducts that the store
sold. Those who felt a special en-
titlement to the goods to be found
unguarded in the store ultimately
short-changed themselves and a
lot of other people along the way.
Management, out of. frustration,
found it easier to cigse the'store
- anid that's what they did.
In reality, we have very few
"entitlements" what comes from
God is really a trust to be used


wisely. If someone feels angry,
if they feel that they have some-
how been cheated, MId suggest
they look at what they have been
given and what they really need.
The rules, the commandments
we have been given are not there
to spoil life but to make it pos-
sible for all of us to live together.
Those who bore the heat of the
day agreed on a wage that must
have been a living wage at the
time and capable of meeting their
needs; otherwise they would not
have signed on.
There are always people who
earn more, have more, seem to
do less work, live more luxurious-
ly. The oppprtunities for all to de-
velop their God-given potentials,
to apply themselves, to make use
of resources available are still out
there for us all.
Taking short-cuts can lead to
complications, unforeseen prob-
lems, trouble not thought about.
The one that is "entitled" to do
what He wants with His own is
the Lord. When people decide
that they know better, they're
heading for, problems. He does,
what He wa~tsf i,*i is owniuN-
all are blessed by Him; each in his
own way. He's "entitled" to do
that-and thanks be to God for it!

Children
Continued From Page 1


the CEO of Children Services
Council of Palm Beach County,
the Fla. state legislature is consid-
ering a cutback of $15 million in
subsidized child care.
That's less-than-encouraging
news to the Glades area, she
said.
"We need action for these
children," Ms. Ebbole said. "Right
now, the state is slashing services
and programs for our children.
Are we serious or just proclaim-
ing?"
According to Ms. Ebbole, in
Palm Beach County alone, al-
most 7,000 children are on the
subsidized child care waiting list.
To make matters worse, the state
is also considering a cutback.in
funding for Healthy Start, a pro-
gram that works with pregnant
women to foster healthy babies.
"The children are in the spot-
light right now," Ms. Ebbole
said. "Nobody can afford to for-
get them because they literally


are our future. Parents need to
read to their children, make sure
they're safe, pay attention to them
and take time out of their lives to
spend with them. Once you have
a child in your life, it should re-
volve around that child.."
Thomas Roberts, the executive
director of NOAH Inc., couldn't
agree more.
"Families cannot afford the'
quality of services we provide
them," Mr. Roberts said. "The
subsidies have dried up to a sub-,
stantial amount and it's becoming'
a real issue for the working poor,
especially since the children need
these services to help them pre-
pare for school in the future."
Ms. Williams appreciated
the child care organizations that
came to raise awareness in this
endeavor.
"This is a celebration of chil-
dren for us," Ms. Williams said.
"These 'children are our future
and we're building character in
them. It starts right here with the
early childhood programs we
have in the Glades."

The front end of the minivan

third runners-up, respectively.
Sarah Shine won this year's Miss
Congeniality award.
Thomas Cherizard, the Lions
Club president, couldn't have
been any happier with how the
pageant turned out.


"When you see any type of
vehicle in a collision with a dump
truck, obviously the smaller ve-
hicle will absorb the most energy
and damage," Lt. Frith explained.
Michael R. Arena, the district
battalion chief of the Palm Beach
County Fire Rescue, said that the
fire rescue crews had to cut the
victim out of her minivan. Chief
Arena explained how the rescue
crews proceeded with the han-
dling of the accident.
"The front end of her minivan
was severely damaged, so we
had to cut the top of the minivan,


"We wanted this year's Har-
vest Queen Pageant to be different
from the past because the Lions
Club wanted more 'community
participants and to have all of the
contestants to showcase their tal-
ents," Mr. Cherizard said. "I want


which took us about 45 minutes,"
Chief Arena said. "The victim lost
a great deal of blood, so we had
to get her to the hospital as fast as
we could."
The victim was flown via trau-
ma hawk to St. Mary's Hospital,
where she was undergoing sur-
gery.
"When someone sees that
a rooftop was cut off from a ve-
hicle, it's alarming because most
people think that the victim either
suffered from severe injuries or
was killed in the crash," Lt. Frith
said.

The victim's two-year-old
daughter was also involved in
the minivan collision, but she suf-
fered no injuries.
"Thank God her child was se-
cured properly in a child-restrain-
ing device," Lt. Frith said.
The 2-year-old was transport-
ed to Palms West Hospital, where
she was taken in for observation.
The driver of the dump truck
also suffered no injuries in the
collision.

Pahokee Lady Softball program looking for recognition


Pahokee Lady Blue
Devils defeat Palm
Beach Lakes

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PAHOKEE One would think
that softball is a new sport played
at Pahokee Middle-Senior High
School.
But it actually isn't, as the girls
spring sport has been playing
over 15 years now.
For one thing, Ranae Har-
rington, the first-year head coach,
would like nothing more than
having the program gain notoriety
throughout Palm Beach County.
Not only that, Harrington wants
the girls to have an opportunity to
play softball year-round, just like
those from other areas do.
"Teams on the coast play year-
round, so those girls are able
to keep their basic skills," Har-
rington said. "Our girls are only
playing three to four months a
year and many of them have not
played before high school."
It's not the only hurdle that the
softball team has to endure just to
stay competitive.
The girls don't even have their
own high school field to practice
and play home games on, so they
have to compete at the Duncan
Padgett Park on State Road 715,
about five miles from the high
school.


To make matters worse, trans-
portation isn't even provided by
the school for their home games,
according to Harrington.
Thankfully, the Pahokee Recre-
ational Center provides a courtesy
to the team by letting them use a
center-provided van for transpor-
tation purposes.
But what agonizes Harrington
the most is that if the girls wanted
to participate in a year-long soft-
ball league, they would have to
travel to the coast to do so.
"I would like to see us be
able to practice and play more
throughout the year," Harrington
said. "It's inconvenient for is to
have to go over to the coast and
participate in city leagues. A lot of
our girls don't have transportation
to begin with. We really need to
have our own city league teams
out in the Glades area."
The softball team, which has
11 players but only two seniors,
feature four that played last sea-
son. But the rest of them had nev-
er picked up a softball before the
season began in early January, ac-
cording to the softball coach.
Prior to the start of the softball
season, which began on Feb. 19,
the girls went to a weekend-long
softball camp in Orlando. There,
the athletes learned pitching and
catching techniques, in addition
to a variety of hitting strategies.
Those techniques and strate-
gies served the softball team well
in their 20-9 victory over Palm


Beach Lakes on April 3.
A softball game normally lasts
six innings, but after the Lady
Blue Devils scored more than 10
runs in the fifth inning against
Palm Beach Lakes, the game was
called.
This was made possible due to
a ruling that says if a team leads
by more than 10 runs at any given
point, the game is over.
"Our girls were ready for Palm
Beach Lakes, they needed this
win," Harrington said. "Our fans
were very supportive of our girls.
The girls kept their composure in
spite of the other team's unsports-
manlike conduct throughout the
game."
During the game, it seemed
as if both dugouts were going to
ensue in a fight due to what was
perceived to be taunting by the
Palm Beach Lakes softball play-
ers. Also, six Pahokee softball
players were hit by pitches in the
contest.
Amazingly, the Lady Blue Dev-
ils drew 18 walks in the game,
in addition to an inside-the-park
home run by Leporshae Jones,
who plays at third base and in the
left field. Jones scored two runs in
the contest.
Though the softball team has
a 3-12 record, with one regular
season game left at Wellington
Christian School tomorrow, the
coaches which include assis-
tants Jamie Wheeler and Hector
Lopez like what they're seeing
