Brock to be new Pahokee manager


Concerns about the
selection process
arise

By Naji Tobias
The Sun

PAHOKEE It has taken about
three months, but the city com-
missioners have finally selected
their .new city manager.
By a unanimous decision,
Matthew Brock was the city's
top choice for the position.
Replacing Lillie Latimore --


the previous city manager who
was terminated on January 7 --
proved to be a challenging task.
The commissioners required
at least two things from the. city
manager: the ability to exhibit
proper relations between the
city's employees and its citizens,
as well as having previous expe-
rience as a city manager.
Eight interested candidates
applied for perhaps the most
important job in the city, but af-
ter the shortlist of the applicants
was completed on April 1, only
three were considered for inter-
views.


The interviews took. place
Monday, April 7 in a special meet-
ing at the city hall chambers.
It came dowt to Mr. Brock,
in addition to two well-known
locals Terry Reed and Lillian
Tomeu.
In the end, the commission-
ers were most impressed with
Mr. Brock's interview due to his
past experience as city manager.
Mr. Brock served as a town
manager for the town of Dundee
from March 2000 to August 2003.
The top candidate later served
time as a city administrator for
the City of Live Oak from August

town manager in Luray, Virginia.
Concerns with the city


manager


selection


surfaces
Though Mr. Brock was unani-
mously selected by the commis-
sioners, there were concerns
during the April 8 commission
meeting regarding his back-
ground check.
Some of the commissioners
also felt that the selection pro-
cess could have been done more


thoroughly, including Commis-
sioner Allie Biggs.
"I still have questions on what
has been done concerning back-
ground checks," Commissioner
Biggs said. "Once we get some-
one in here as a city manager
and we find something out that
we didn't know about, then it
will be detrimental to the city."
Henry Crawford, no longer
the city's vice mayor, somewhat
disagreed with Commissioner
Biggs' assessment, implying that
a city manager has to be hired to

Q-Fest Weekend



in Pahokee


Anquan Boldin
gives back to his
native community

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE There's no place
like home.
It was certainly the case
for this close-knit city when
Anquan Boldin, a current NFL
superstar and Pahokee native,
came back to his hometown
last weekend.
Boldin, who currently is a
wide receiver for the Arizona
Cardinals, hosted the fourth an-
nual Q-Fest, which attracted a
host of celebrities for a series of
fun-filled festivities.
The three-day event, held
from April 10 to April 12, fea-
tured a comedy show, a celebri-
ty basketball game and Fun Day
In-The-Park, among others.
Among the celebrities who
participated in the Q-Fest were
former professional football
players like Edgerrin James, an
Immokalee native, Eric Green,
from Clewiston, Brad Banks,
from-Belle Glade, Eric Moore,
also a Pahokee native, Clinton
Portis, Andre Johnson, Bryant
McFadden, Josh McCown, Mi-
chael Spurlock, Leron McCoy,
Jessie Armstead and more.
Benji Brown, a famed co-
median who is also a radio per-
sonality of WEDR 99 Jamz out
of Miami hosted the comedy
show, which was held on April
1-0 at the Pahokee High School
Auditorium.
About 500 people came out
to watch the show last Thurs-
day night.
Brown was certainly happy
with, how the Q-Fest turned
out.
"This thing was a big-time
success and I hope we can


keep this thing going not only
for Pahokee, but for all of the
surrounding areas," Brown
said. "It touched my heart to
see when I looked into the
crowd. The kids had hope in
their eyes."
The next night, over. 1,200
people took part in an auto-
graph signing.
Just after the hour-long auto-
graph signing concluded, many
of the celebrities took some
time to chat with fans before
they were set to compete in the
celebrity basketball game, held
at the Pahqkee High School
gymnasium.
McCoy, a former Arizona
Cardinal wide receiver who's
now with the Houston Texans,
sees Boldin as an inspiration to
many people, including him-
self.
"Q is an ultimate competi-
tor," McCoy said. "He's a good
guy to call you big brother. He
showed us how to conduct
ourselves on and off the field.
I'm glad that I'm out here to
support Q."
Green, who is currently a
cornerback for the Cardinals,
couldn't agree more.
"It's always good to have a
positive role model to do things
the right way," Green said. "An-
quan has been an inspiration
to the whole lake area. This is
a way to show the kids there's
more to life outside of Paho-
kee."
Just before the game began,
the Anquan Boldin Foundation
distributed full scholarships to
three people Hikeem Banks,
Heidi Dove and Sonya, It was
not disclosed how much the
scholarships were valued at.
The celebrity basketball
game was a high scoring af-
Tair, which wowed the packed

Field Day at Research Center


Scientists are
finding ways to
conserve fossil fuel

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Field Day at
the Everglades Research Center
proved to be a very insightful
tour of what's to come in the
future.
About 140 people took part
in the April 8 event, which fea-
tured a variety of stations that
primarily focused on what the
research center is doing to de-
velop cost efficient and effec-
tive agricultural practices in the


area.
Scientists and growers here
are hoping that consumers will
be less dependent on petro-
leum in the future.
* Not only are researchers
coming up with ways to con-
serve fossil fuels, but they're
testing out a variety of products
to see if there's a viable alterna-
tive to. petroleum use.
With gasoline prices cur-
rently averaging: near $3.50 per
gallon, it's no wonder that con-
sumers are trying to take con-
servative measures.
All of this has caused much
concern for families and grow-
ers alike.


Scientists hope to
replace gasoline with
ethanol
According to the U.S. De-
partment of Energy, about 99
percent of today's vehicles are
dependent on oil, which in turn
is the lifeblood of the country's
economy.
With that in mind, Dr. S.
Chandramohan, a biological
scientist, showed the tourers
energy crops that are being
grown at the research center,
Elephant grass and miscant-
hus are just two of the 'bio-fuel
crops' that are grown at the

Some areas affected by new water restriction changes


WEST PALM BEACH-In re-
sponse to improved regional wa-
ter resource conditions, the South
FloridaWater Management District
(SFWMD) has modified emergen-
cy water restrictions across most
of the agency's 16-county region,
transitioning from one-day-week
landscape irrigation restrictions
to two-day-a-week watering. The
District's nine-member Govern-
ing Board adopted a "Modified
Phase II Severe Water Shortage
Order" effective April 18, insti-
tuting an up to two-day-a-week
watering schedule for residential
landscape irrigation. The sched-
ule will continue conserving re-
gional water supplies as part of
the District's response to the re-
gional rainfall deficit. Landscape
irrigation accounts for up to half
of all household water consump-
tion in Florida.
"It's important to note that we
are not lifting emergency restric-
tions. Our decision to modify the
restrictions is based on the im-
proved conditions of our water
resources," said SFWMD Govern-
ing Board Chairman Eric Buer-
mann. "We couldn't have made
this progress without the help
and cooperation of our citizens,
businesses, utilities, local govern-
ments and farms embracing wa-
ter conservation. The District has
also used deliberate and proactive
water management to help retain
as much water in the system as
possible over the past year."
Under the water shortage
emergency order, the up to two-
day-a-week landscape irrigation
restrictions go into effect April 18,
with local governments encour-
aged to refrain from enforcement
until Thursday, May 1, allowing
residents with sufficient time to
.become aware of the modified
restrictions. The modified manda-
tory restrictions apply to all water
from traditional sources, including
water from public utilities, private
wells, canals, ponds and lakes.
Users of 100-percent reclaimed
water are exempt from the re-.
strictions but are encouraged to
conserve water voluntarily.
Highlights of the Modified
Phase II water shortage order in-
clude:
Residents and businesses of
Broward, Collier, Miami-Dade,
Monroe, St. Lucie and coastal
areas Iof Lee, Martin and Palm
Beach counties, including the City


of West Palm Beach, are limited
to a two-day-per-week landscape
irrigation schedule with two "wa-
tering windows:"
Odd street addresses may ir-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Wednesdays and Saturdays from
12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m.
to 11:59 p.m.
Even street addresses may ir-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Thursdays and Sundays from 12
a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m. to
11:59 p.m.
The SFWMD recommends
the efficient use of water, which
includes placing a maximum of
about three-quarters of an inch to
an inch of water once per week
on lawns and accomplishing ir-
rigation during the early morning
hours when temperatures and
wind speed are the lowest to re-
duce evaporation losses.
Hand-watering with one hose
fitted with an automatic shut-off
nozzle is allowed for 10 minutes
per day for landscape stress relief
and to prevent plant die-off.
Low-volume irrigation, includ-
ing the use of drip and microjet
systems that apply water directly
to plant root zones, is not re-
stricted but should be voluntarily
reduced.
Additional watering days and
times are allocated for the estab-
lishment of new lawns and land-
scapes
No restrictions apply to other
outside water uses, such as for
car and boat washing, pressure
cleaning of paved surfaces, deco-
rative fountains and water-based
recreation (e.g. swimming pools,
water slides).
Golf courses must reduce their
allocated water use by 30 per-
cent.
Agricultural and nursery water
users in the Lake Okeechobee
Service Area remain subject to
Modified Phase III restrictions.
Because jurisdiction in certain
counties is shared with other wa-
ter management districts, the SF-
WMD has coordinated with these
agencies to simplify implementa-
tion and enforcement:
Residents of Orange and Os-
ceola counties should adhere to
any water restrictions set by the
St. Johns River Water Manage-
ment District.
Residents of Polk, Charlotte
and Highlandscounties should
adhere to the water restrictions


set by the Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District with the
following exception:
Residents and other entities
located within the Indian Prairie
Region, portions of the Kissim-
mee River Valley Water Use basin
and portions of the Lakeshore Pe-
rimeter Water Use Basin remain
subject to Water Shortage Order
2007-684-DAO-WS.
Golf courses, nurseries, and
agricultural users District-wide
should follow SFWMD water use
restrictions.
One-Day-Week Watering Re-
mains in Effect in Areas of Con-
cern
Due to continued local con-
cerns about water resource avail-
ability, one-day-a week watering
remains in place for the cities of
Dania Beach, Hallandale Beach,
Lake Worth and Lantana and
portions of unincorporated Lee
County, including the Lehigh
Acres area. One-day-a week land-
scape irrigation remains in place
for residents and businesses in
the Lake Okeechobee Service
Area, which includes portions
of Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee,
and western Palm Beach. and
Martin counties.
The District implemented one-
day-a-week restrictions region-
wide in January for the first time
in the agency's history, based on
extreme water shortage condi-
tions and a continued rainfall defi-
cit of close to 25 inches. The Dis-
trict uses its emergency authority
to implement and modify water
restrictions and bases these deci-
sions on the status of the region's
water resources.
"Our. goal is to ensure we have
sufficient water to meet regional
demands during the remaining
two months of dry season and
beyond," said Carol Ann Wehle,
executive director of the SFWMD.
"These modifications will con-
tinue to protect the resource and
help transition the region into
a permanent year-round two-
day-a-week landscape irrigation
schedule."
Restrictions make a difference
Implementing water use re-
strictions has already proved ef-
fective during the continued re-
gional water shortage. Based on
data reported by 46 public water
utilities in Broward, Palm Beach,
Martin, St. Lucie, Collier, Lee and
Miami-Dade counties, an estimat-


ed 11.7 billion gallons of potable
(drinking) water was'saved over
three months between March 22,
2007, when restrictions first went
into effect, through June 30, 2007.
Savings were most pronounced
on non-watering days. For exam-
ple, one day per week landscape
irrigation restrictions instituted in
Broward and Palm Beach coun-
ties saved an estimated 130 mil-
lion gallons a day of potable wa-
ter.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District also worked with
23 local drainage districts, as well
as agricultural users, to hold wa-
ter within the local drainage dis-
trict water management systems.
This cooperative effort prevented
nearly 14 billion gallons of water
from being discharged to tide
since April of last year.
* Current conditions
Above-average rainfall in Feb-
ruary, March and early April has
raised surface and groundwater
levels in most areas of the Dis-
trict's 16 counties. At 10.53 feet
above sea level this morning, Lake
Okeechobee's water level contin-
ues to make modest gains and is
expected to continue an upward
trend. Levels are now about five
inches higher than on this date
last year, however, remain about
four feet below the historical av-
erage for this time of year. Water
levels in the three Everglades Wa-
ter Conservation Areas in western
Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-
Dade counties are near or above
their optimum levels for this time
of year and nearly a foot higher
than this time last year.
Groundwater levels are also
higher now than this time last
year, with the exception of a few
wells in Lee and Collier counties
that remain low. Water levels in
the Kissimmee River are at their
regulation, or optimum, levels
and higher than this time last year.
(Click here to view an overview of
water shortage conditions.)
South Florida's dry season be-
gins in November and ends with
the start of the wet season, typi-
cally in June. One of the season's
driest months is April, which
averages only 2.5 inches of rain
District-wide.
"While April is the ideal time
to heighten water use awareness,
we must create a long-term cul-
ture of conservation to protect
our limited water resources every


month of the year," Ms. Wehle
said. To achieve that, stakehold-
ers have been meeting with the
District to develop a year-round
water conservation program for
South Florida that includes perma-
nent year-round two-day-a-week
landscape irrigation measures.
Their final recommendations will
be presented to the Governing
Board in June to guide an endur-
ing, conservation program across


the entire region.

strictions or water conservation,

TALLAHASSEE "One per-
son can make a big difference'
in Florida," said Public Service
Commission Chairman Matthew
M. Carter II, who is urging Florid-
ians to reduce their water con-
sumption during April for Water
Conservation Month, declared by
Governor Crist and the Cabinet.
"We can make sensible choic-
es about our own water usage,
while also protecting Florida's
natural resource for future gen-
erations to use and enjoy," Chair-
man Carter added.
Chairman Carter suggests five
easy tips for residents to practice


not only this spring, but all year
long, to reduce water consump-
tion and save money on their wa-
ter and wastewater bill:
Water your lawn in the morn-
ing and let water sink in slowly.
Use a rake and broom to
clean sidewalks, driveways, and
gutters instead of a hose.
Turn off the water while
brushing your teeth and shaving.
Don't leave the water run-
ning while doing dishes.
Use the proper load setting
when using your washing ma-
chine.

Herbert Randolph
Massey
Herbert "Mass Herbs" Ran-
dolph Massey, age 90, was a resi-
dent of Clewiston and Kingston,
Jamaica. He was born on Aug.
6, 1917 to John Massey and Edith
Brown in Seaforth, St. Thomas
Parish, Jamaica. On April 6, 2008
while in Clewiston, at the home
of his son Patrick (Alice) Massey,
Mass Herbs died peacefully of nat-
ural causes. Mass Herbs was 90
Sears old. After receiving Jesus as
ord and Savior, Mass Herbs was
married on Oct. 1, 1941 in Kings-
ton, St. Andrews Parish, Jamaica
to Floris Marion "Pearl" Watt. With
his wife of 66 years they had 11
children; Patricia (Audley), Peter
(Melody), Monty (Charmayne),
John (Jacquelyn), Christopher
(Cherie), Marjory (Robert), Trev-
or, Elizabeth, Joseph, Mark (Ger-
aldine) and Patrick (Alice).
He worked for the Jamaican
Government as a civil servant as
director of maintenance until he
moved in 1974 to the U.S. as liai-
son officer between the migrant
workers and several U.S. com-
panies. At the age of 72, Herbert


retired from the work force, so
he and his wife Pearl could divide
their time between Jamaica, U.S.
and Canada to visit their extensive
family and occasionally care for
the elderly.
Mr. Massey embodied the defi-
nition of a Christian gentleman.
Throughout his life, he always
shared the love of Christ and be-
lief that as long as you believe in
Christ as your Lord and Savior,
you shall never die but have life
eternal. With joy in our hearts, we
look forward to Higher Ground,
where we shall meet him in Christ
again one day.
He was predeceased by his two
sons Michael "Monty" Massey,
2007, and Joseph Massey, 1990.
He is survived by his loving
wife, Pearl Massey, nine of his
children, 23 grandchildren and 11
great-grandchildren. Mr. Massey
will be laid to rest in a private cer-
emony. The family would like to
invite you to attend a Memorial/
Celebration Service in Honor of
Hebert R. Massey. The service will
be held on Sunday, April 20, at 2
p.m. in New Harvest Church, 360
Holiday Isles Blvd. Clewiston.
In lieu of flowers, the fam-
ily suggests memorial donations
be made to Hope Hospice 9470

18 kids receive scholarships


Eighteen Glades-area students
officially entered the Take Stock
in Children program, making
them eligible to receive four-
year full-tuition scholarships or
two-year technical scholarships.
Florida Crystals Corporation pro-
vides scholarships for many of
Take Stock's students from the

students include: Eric Lawson,
Juan Calvillo, Daisy Jimenez, and

participate in New Hope Chari-
ties' programs in Pahokee, where
Take Stock's western Palm Beach

students from Everglades Pre-
paratory Academy in Pahokee

diligently to recruit local mentors
from Belle Glade, Pahokee and
South Bay."

which is celebrating its 1lth year
in Palm Beach County, has grown
exppnentially in the Tri-Cities
over the past three years, from
17 students to almost 90. The

Ft. Drum Crystal Mine a county treasure


By D. Hamilton
INI/Florida
Okeechobee residents have heard
of the Rucks Pit. Some know it better
as the Ft. Drum Crystal Mine. Others in
the area have visited the shell rock pit
for construction materials or may have
even enjoyed a day of adventure digging
for calcite crystals and fossils. Past visits
may have given an idea of what can be
found at the mine but, have you seen
it lately?
Nestled back off the beaten path of
Hwy. 441 (on Old Cemetery Road) in
quiet Ft. Drum, the Rucks family-owned
and operated Crystal Mine has been un-
dergoing a major transformation.
Beyond the geological treasures
found there including, calcite crystals,
fossilized clam bed formations, sharks
teeth and coral, there are plans for a
campground with 49 full service camp-
sites including water and electric and 30
primitive campsites for the near future.
There are also new bathrooms built
with showers installed awaiting proper
permitting before the service can be
hooked up as well as picnic pavilions
for family outings and barbeques.


Fifty years of excavating shell rock
at the mine has produced a 110-acre
spring-fed, pristine lake. The lake, which
has yet to be named, is stocked for the
sport "catch and release" fisherman
with bass, speck, blue gill, small mouth
bass and catfish.
The 300-acre property also has 20
acres of well-maintained wetlands con-
servation easements, making a great
place for butterfly and birdwatching
with many local species of birds in-
cluding the Rosetta Spoonbill, Sandhill
Cranes, a number of majestic nesting
Eagles, Osprey, Blue Heron, woodpeck-
ers and more.
"The Fort Drum Crystal Mine has the
largest potential for recreation in Flori-
da," said Edwin "Eddie" Rucks. "It is a
short, 25 minute ride from downtown
Okeechobee and just 14 miles from
the Florida Turnpike exiting at Yeehaw
Junction," he said.
It is the only resort activity center
zoned as such in the county according
to the Okeechobee County Planning
and Development/Zoning Department.
"We've spent approximately
$800,000 so far on the project with an-
other $2 million in projects in the works


D. Hamilton/INI
A lucky find could be at your feet during a visit to the Ft. Drum Crystal
Mine. Calcite geodes or "crystals" found from digging in the collection
site area at the mine are noted to be most unique for their formations of
"dogtooth spar" (Jagged, faceted, teeth-like edges). These formations
are considered to be found only in Ft. Drum.


including trails, pavilions, gift store and
museum later on," stated Mr. Rucks.
, Mrs. Glenna Rucks, retired Okeecho-
bee North Elementary School first grade
teacher has been instrumental in bring-
ing students out to the mine, giving them
the shortened version of the prehistoric
story of the shell pit and what once was
as many as 3 million years ago.
The Ft. Drum Crystal Mine hosts lo-
cal school children from all over the
county. The third, fourth and fifth grade
students come by bus to the collecting
site and are given buckets and some
hand tools for their excavating adven-
ture. From there, they launch into the
mounds piled high with fossilized clam
formations and crystals to dig for trea-
sures. Students come free of charge and
get to keep the treasures found there.
Elementary school children are not
the only young people to benefit from
the geological findings at the mine.
Graduate students from Florida Atlantic
University (FAU) come to the mine with
Professor Ed Petuch to complete their
thesis work.
Professor Petuch has written field
guides on the findings from the mine,
identifying many different types of fossil


shells and clam formations, some only
found in this area.
Visitors and gem enthusiasts from
all over the world come to thetnine to
dig for the precious crystals found em-,
bedded in the formations. The crystals,
are yellowish in color but resemble sap-
phires for their beautiful facets.
"The first faceted crystal found in
Okeechobee is documented at 2 car-
ats," stated Eddie Rucks. It is donated to
the Okeechobee County Library along
with a full color version of the newest
field guide by Scott Augustis," he said.
Inside the guide, there are descrip-
tions of the shells, fossils and crystals
found there. It also notes the 32 "collec-
tion sites" where these formations can
be found throughout the State of Florida
with the Ft. Drum.Crystal Mine noted as
number one on the list.
Okeechobee residents and visitors
need only take advantage of this vast
natural resource for a relaxing, recre-
ational day trip experience for the whole
family right in your own back yard.
The mine is open to the public daily
fromti 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. For more in-
formation about individual and group
prices, please call 863-634-0691.

-Aile in a gold fish b owl Religion News in Brief


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Once upon a time, many years
ago, I proved my manhood by
tossing a carnival ball in a little
glass bowl and won a goldfish. I
carried it home in a plastic bag,
kept it in a jar until I could go out
and purchase an official goldfish
bowl from the store.
If you've ever had a goldfish,
you know just what happens to
them. You put them in their little
goldfish bowl and they just keep
swimming and swimming-try-
ing to get out of the bowl. Then
about three weeks later you have
to put them in the other bowl.
They live such short lives. That's
probably one of the reasons most
carnivals don't give out live fish
anymore.
The crazy thing is that when a
goldfish is put in a little bowl, it


starts to produce an enzyme that
keeps it from growing. If only it
could get out of that goldfish bowl.
When you take it out of the bowl
and put it in a big pond, it starts to
grow and grow into everything it
could possibly become.
Someone once said that we
need to live every day like it will
be our last, for one day we will be
right. There's a lot of wisdom in
that. Too many people are limit-
ing themselves to the small gold-
fish bowl they are living in.
As God's people, we need to
have a restlessness to move out
of the confinement of a spiritual
goldfish bowl. Though we may
believe all the right beliefs, go to
all the right meetings, and do the
right things, there are times when
something inside of us suggests
there might be something more.
That's God's calling in our lives
to be all that we can be. We can't


realize that something more or be
all that we can be until we step by
faith outside of our comfortable
little goldfish bowl.
Have you given thought to the
possibility that you might be in a
spiritual goldfish bowl at the mo-
rnent? Perhaps you have found
yourself just swimming and
swimming and going in circles.
The lesson of the goldfish bowl
is that if you can get out, God
has so much more for you than
you've ever experienced before.
He wants to introduce you to the
big pond you were made for.
There is still a big pond out
there God has prepared for all
of us. He wants to do something
amazing through each of us! Let
us grow to our potential.


Easter in the long term


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
I had one of my board mem-
bers come to me one day and
ask if I could help get a school
open in a few days. He was also
on the Board of Directors for a re-
tarded children's center and their
director quit a few days before
they were to open. I agreed with
condition, to help out. We hired
a teaching staff, bus driving per-
sonnel and got things up and run-
ning. One day as I was coming
in, one little boy said to me "You
weren't here yesterday!" He was
right: I had been away at a con-
ference. He noticed something
that it seemed none of the other
children noticed. I went to the
files and wondered why he was
there. It became apparent that
records weren't very accurate or
well-kept. Somehow, this little
guy, and lots of his peers seemed
to have wound upin this center
for all sorts of reasons. I stopped
his mother when she came to
pick him up a few days later and
asked her "How would you feel if
we could get him back in the reg-
ular school program?" Her face lit
up and she said "If that were only
possible." I promised her I would
try and contacted the school py-
schologist who came one day
and tested'him. The report came
back favorable, we said good-by
to this youngster and I was re-
warded by his mother's smile as


she picked him up that last day.
It would not be in the day-to-
day activities that he would be
soon undertaking, it would be in
the realization that he would be
taken seriously when he entered
high school, or when he began a
vocational program, or if he later
decided to to to college. The day-
to-day lessons would be similar
even if at a different pace; and the
new classmates would already be
knwn to him from his neighbor-
hood. The difference would be
in the cumulative effect on this
young life; a better program, bet-
ter opportunities, challenges at
a different level and growth that
would come from them. As I read
the lessons for this past Sunday
there was an account of two of
the Lord's disciples walking along
and a stranger joined them (Luke
24:13-35).
They were saddened; their
friend Jesus, the one they hoped
would be the messiah had been
condemned and put to death.
They had hoped that He would
be the one to come and save ev-
eryone. The "stranger" tells them
what had happened to him was
necssary and not without pur-
pose. Night was approaching and
they invited Him to stay: He broke
bread with them and then leaves.
They suddenly realize who He
was and it occurs to them "Were
not our hearts burning within us
while He was talking to us on
the road (vs. 24:32)?" There was
that potential in them in spite of
all of their disappointment and


sorrow; things would be differ-
ent from now on because a short
visit had eternal implications for
them. They would have a new
life; He was the one after all, he
had promised them and all of
us eternal life. The implications
of the story are still wtih us: Je-
sus overcame the world the fless
and the devil and promised that
we would be with Him too. We
would have a new life and would
be changed because He passed
this way, shared a meal, spent
some time telling uw what it is all
about, even if we didn't realize it
at the moment. Thanks be to God
for sending His Son, what it has
come to mean, and what God
has given to all of us. After getting
one child back in school, I went
through the files and found oth-
ers. I had them tested, and each
one was returned to school, too.
Our enrollment was way, way
down by the end of my agreed
term of directorship. Some of the
board worried, complained that
there might be too few students
to have a viable operation. 1 told
them that I believed in what I did.
Apparently the funding sources
did too; the school received more
funds than anticipated for the
following year after my "house
cleaning.' "Warehousing" was
out: giving a new life was in. Lives
would be changed even if it didn't
appear that way immediately I
think I knew "What Would Jesus
Do?" and did it!

Glades Central Band
needs support
The Marching Maroon Ma-
chine is back and we're seeking
financial support from the com-
munity to purchase new uniforms
for next year's marching season.
The upcoming season will be
very busy for the band as they
travel around the State of Florida.
The band will be performing in
Daytona, Tallahassee and Texas!
If you thought a helicopter during
this past Muck Bowl was spectac-
ular; wait until next year!
With your support, the band
will be the sharpest looking band
in the country. There is a sample


uniform available for viewing in
the band room. All donors. will
be featured in our Spring Concert
Program and will receive an hon-
orable mention at our Homecom-
ing & Muck Bowl Football Games.
Now is the time to give the same
support to the band that is given
to the football program. Not.only
will the football team bring it
home next year, but the band will
stand tall alongside them as well.
Thank you in advance for your
support.
Some upcoming events spon-
sored by the Marching Maroon
Machine: The Muck City Battle
of the MC'S (Rap Contest) April 3
and The Biggest & Baddest Step
Show that Belle Glade has seen in
years on April 26. Keep an eye out

Talk fundraiser
Gove Elementary sixth grade
Ambassadors will be selling can-
dy. This is a very meaningful fund-
raiser for the students. The mon-
ey raised will be used for their
annual trip to St. Augustine. This
year, the trip also includes Tampa
and Miami. The purpose of this
adventure is to get our students


acquainted with the Hispanic
heritage of our wonderful state. In
past years, the students have had
wonderful experiences, includ-
ing meeting with former Gover-
nor Jeb Bush twice. This year's
trip, like last year's, will focus on
the areas of our state which best
show our cultural diversity, which
fits in perfectly with the Gove El-
ementary mission. Please help
our Ambassadors, who are the
students who have met specific
academic and citizenship require-
ments, by buying candy from
them. We thank you in advance
for your support.

the students to promote health
and wellness activities for our
youth.
We would like to again thank
all our partners for a wonderful
wellness month, which supports
our community goal of wellness

ity is always the health, wellness

commend all of the participants
for a job well done. *
Art News
Seven Gove Elementary stu-
dent artists also had an opportu-
nity to compete in the Projects
Category of the Foreign Language
Fair held on March 29. The stu-
dents learned about Mexico's
national costume comprised of
pantalones (white cotton trou-
sers), camisas (shirts), sombreros
(wide brimmed hats), and sera-
pes (shawls worn from warmth).
They also learned about "hua-
rches", the typical footwear or
sandal worn by most villagers.
Our students constructed their
own huarches out of leather and


painted them with traditional flo-
ral or geometric designs. Some
students even glued beads to
their sandals. All of the projects
received ribbons. Six students re-
ceived "Excellent/Second Place"
ribbons and one student received
a "Good/Third Place" ribbon. We
congratulate the following art-
ists for their participation and for
their accomplishments: Audrina
Morris, Joel Benitez, Maria Jime-
nez, Antonio Cisneros, Marlene
Aboytes, Ivette Paniagua, and Ol-
ivia Pope.
World Math Day
Gove Elementary competed,
for the first time, in the World
Math Day Internet Competition.
Our school, along with 20,000
other schools from 150 countries
around the world, competed in
solving "math problems in sixty
seconds. Each contestant com-
peted against up to three students
at a time solving addition, sub-
traction, multiplication or division
problems respectively. The stu-
dents were able to see the name
and country of their competitors
during the sixty second chal-
lenge. Over one million students,
world-wide, entered the math
challenge. Gove Elementary had
389 students to compete in this
challenge answering 10,065 math
problems correctly. The students
not only practiced their math
skills but learned many lessons in
geography as they located places
on maps where their competitors
came from. We look forward to
participating in World Math Day
again next year and hope to have


more students take on this math
challenge. It was a fantastic math
day for all who participated.
Black History Celebration
The self-contained ESE classes
presented a short Black History
Program on February 29, in the

Thirteen Florida Highway Road Watch


Patrol Troopers honored


-Each Trooper with
at least 100 DUI Ar-
rests-

Tallahassee -One of the most
dangerous hazards on Florida's
roadways is a driver operating
a vehicle while under the influ-
ence of alcohol or controlled
substances. Law enforcement
officers and troopers play a vi-
tal role in our communities by
identifying impaired drivers and
removing them from our road-
ways before they injure or kill
innocent citizens.
Thirteen Florida Highway
Patrol troopers are among the
175 Florida law enforcement
officers honored by Mothers
Against Drunk Driving (MADD)
for their efforts in DUI enforce-
ment. "We are proud of these
dedicated troopers as much as
we are inspired by them. By re-
moving impaired drivers from
Florida's roadways, we are mak-
ing our communities safer for
everyone," said the Director of
the Florida Highway Patrol Col.
John Czernis. "These troopers
have the valuable ability to rec-
ognize impaired drivers, which
is the first difficult step to get-
ting them off our roads."
The FHP is also pleased to
announce the recipient of a
special award that is given by
the agency to the trooper who
arrests more impaired drivers
than any other member of the
Florida Highway Patrol during


the previous year. The Hurd-
Smith Award was created in
1998 to honor the memory of
Trooper Kimberly Hurd and
Trooper Robbie Smith. Drunk
drivers killed both of these
troopers. The recipient of the
2007 Hurd-Smith award is
Trooper Terry Goswick from
Troop C, Tampa with 190 DUI
arrests.
The Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles con-
gratulates these troopers who
truly exemplify what it means
to be a member of the Florida
Highway Patrol.

y, Gators baseball aims for layoff run


Gators baseball aims for playoff run


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE-Is the Glades
Day Gators baseball team ready
for the playoffs?
According to Mike Under-
wood, the head coach, not only
do they seem ready but are confi-
dent in making an appearance in
the Class 2A regional tournament,
which begins on April 29.
Despite the Gators' 7-10 overall
record as of Monday, Underwood
feels like if his team plays well
enough in the District 13-Class 2A
tournament, they could finish as
one of the top two teams.
The teams in Glades Day's
district are American Heritage-
Delray, King's Academy, St. Ever-
ett Christian, Summit Christian,
Benjamin and Jupiter Christian.
"I think we'll get to the district
championship game," Under-
wood said. "We've beaten every
district team except for King's
Academy and American Heri-
tage."
With Glades Day's district re-
cord of 4-8 they lost to King's
Academy and American Heri-
tage-Delray twice anything can
happen next week as the district
quarterfinals begin on Monday,
April 21.
For one thing, if the Gators want
to make a district championship
run, they must improve on their
hitting, as it has been their Achil-
les heel in many games. Accord-
ing to Underwood, Glades Day
typically starts off games strongly,
but as the contests wear on, the
opposition somehow connects
on clutch hits.
"We just haven't had timely
hits this season so far," Under-
wood said. "There hasn't been
one game we got the big hit
yet. Our pitching has been good


enough to win, but our losses
have come when other teams get
the big hit on us in our games."
In the Gators' April 1 game
against King's Academy, the
Glades Day pitching staff allowed
the Lions to connect on a three-
run home run in the first inning.
Glades Day lost that contest, 5-3.
Aside from that, Underwood
would really like for his team to
limit strikeouts and force their op-
ponents into errors.
"We need to get contact on
the baseball for that to happen,"
Underwood said.
If there's anyone on the team
that could step up their play, it
would likely be junior multi-pur-
pose player Coleman Sample and
senior designated hitter/pitcher
E.J. Dolan.
What Underwood likes most
about Dolan is that he has struck
out only four times this season so
far. The baseball coach likes how
the senior knows how to put the
ball into play, whether it's draw-
ing walks or making contact.
Most importantly, the first-year
varsity baseball player who has a
respectable .280 batting average -
is considered a team leader who's
not a selfish-type in any form.
When it comes to Sample, Un-
derwood likes how he can easily
draw walks and hit for average, as
demonstrated by Sample's .338
batting average and .800 on-base
percentage.
Striking out only five times this
season and a knack for putting
his team in position to win every
game, it's no surprise that Under-
wood considers the junior one of
his best players.
"I would like to see all of us
enjoy the game of baseball and
play better as a team," Under-
wood said. "We have to get, used
to playing together."


Well, they better get it together
quickly because after their regu-
lar season finale against LaBelle
tonight, it is basically a win-or-
go-home situation for Glades Day
from here on out.
To win the district tournament,
the Gators will likely have to get
past American Heritage-Delray
in the championship game on
April 24. The Stallions are the top
ranked team in Class 2A with a
22-1 record and were undefeated
in district play.
."American Heritage has beaten
every team by at least 11 runs,"
Underwood said. "We would
have to play the best games of our
lives to beat this them. They are a
super team."
The District 13-2A tournament
will be played at Roger Dean Sta-
dium in Jupiter, with sixth-seeded.
Glades Day playing third-seeded
St. Everett Christian in the quar-


terfinals on April 21 at 7 p.m. If
the Gators win that game, then
they'll be in the April 22 semifinal
game, where they'll playing the
winner of the quarterfinal contest
between King's Academy, the No.
2 seed and Jupiter Christian, the
No. 7 seed.
Should No. 1 American Heri-
tage, who earned a bye in the
quarterfinals, lose in the semifi-
nals and No. 6 Glades Day moves
on to the district finals, the Gators
would end up squaring off against
either No. 4 Summit Christian or
No. 5 Benjamin those two teams
play each other in the April 21
quarterfinal game.
Here's hoping that Glades Day
can somehow make a Class 2A
state championship run, some-
thing that will surely bring excite-
ment to their baseball team.

reached at ntobias@newszap.com.

INI/Naji Tobias
Though the Glades Day Gators lost to King's Academy, 5-3
on April 1., there were some highlights, including a hit from
senior Tony Walker in that contest.


INI/Naji Tobias

District Champions
If Glades Central's Mychael Hollis put his head down like his fellow teammate Patrick Billings did at the finish, he just
might have won the 800 meter race for the first time. It made that much of a difference because Billings would win the
race with a time of 2:03.23, while Hollis finished second with a recorded time of 2:03.43 at the District 13-2A meet on
April 10. The Glades Day Gators boys track team won their second consecutive Class 1A District Championship at their
District Track Meet on April 8. It's an amazing accomplishment, considering the fact that the track program has been in
existence for only five seasons now. Way fo go, Gators! Glades Central's Travis Benjamin squeaked by Pahokee's Martavi-
ous Odoms in the boys 100 meter dash final race at the District 13-2A meet on April 10. Benjamin's winning time was 10.9
seconds, while Odoms in second place was clocked in at 10.92 seconds in the photo finish. In the girls 100 meter dash
final at the Glades Central District 13-2A Meet, Raiders sprinter Vionni Brown came away victorious with a laser-recorded
time of 12.51 seconds. Pahokee Blue Devils sprinter Ruth Ann Kinglocke finished second with a time of 12.66 at the April
10 event.

run the day-to-day operations of
the city.
"As far as I'm concerned, it's
not a bigger rush than we had in
the past," Commissioner Craw-
ford said.
Another concern that surfaced
during Tuesday night's commis-
sion meeting centered on how


the city manager position was
advertised.
According to Mimi McAn-
drews, the interim city manager,
the position was advertised to var-
ious media outlets about a month
after the January 7 termination of
Ms. Latimore.
"We created the advertise-
ment in three different places,"
Ms. McAndrews said. "It was a
typical classified ad for a posi-
tion opening. It was not done in


RFP (request for proposal) form.
There's no information that was
given to the candidates that's not
public record."
Perhaps the biggest issue at
the meeting was the release of in-
formation from Mr. Brock.
According to Raquel Diaz, the
city clerk, Mr. Brock didn't give
the city a release until Monday,
the day of the interviews.
"Mr. Brock wasn't able to give
us a release until Monday because


he's from Melbourne, which is
out of town," Ms. Diaz said.
Commissioner Diane Walker
chimed in, adding that the city
should have received more appli-
cants for the city manager role.
"This is a serious decision
were making," Commissioner
Walker said.
There were still some reserva-
tions about Mr. Brock's selction,
but all five commissioners voted
in approval of the decision.


Background check has
just begun
According to Ms. McAndrews,
the background 'check of Mr.
Brock is in its preliminary stages,
with the process to be completed
in about two weeks.
The terms of Mr. Brock's con-
tract are also in its beginning
stages.
Ms. McAndrews said that the
terms of the contract will likely


be approved, pending Mr. Brock's
background check results.
"For any position, an'employer
does not want to hire someone
until a background check is com-
pleted, especially with someone
of a high ranking position," Ms.
McAndrews said.
Mr. Brock was not present
at Tuesday night's commission
meeting.

Another gas-saving
possibility
Aside from the possible pro-
duction of ethanol, scientists are
coming up with a way to con-
serve gasoline through a certain
product in captiva grass.
According to Dr. Russell Naga-
ta, a horticulture professor, cap-
tiva grass is expected to be one of
the future types of grass that will
be generally uses for lawn pur-
poses.
Captiva grass is described as
southern chinch bug resistant
type, with a dark, green color and
fine leaf plates.
Currently, most lawns across
the area are laid down with flora-
tam grass.
But, according to Dr. Nagata,
the floratam grass generally re-
quires individuals to mow their
lawns once a week, whereas the
captiva grass will only requires
individuals to mow their lawns
twice a month.
