Improvements for Water Plant


Tri-cities find ways
to provide services
by the LRWT Plant

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES The Palm Beach
County Water Utilities Depart-
ment is moving forward to make
sure that the Glades area has ac-
cess to the Lake Regional Water
Treatment Plant.
On Thursday, April 17, the
county's water utilities depart-


ment met with representatives
from the cities of Belle Glade, Pa-
hokee and South Bay regarding
the subject matter at the Belle
Glade city hall chambers..
According to Larry John-
son, the assistant director of the
county's water .utilities depart-
ment, the water treatment plant
began producing the' clean wa-
ter on March 31, with South Bay
being the first city to access the
water as of April 4.
As for Belle Glade and Paho-
kee, the tentative dates to go on-
line have been set at April 25 and


May 2, respectively.
"We're working with all three
cities to accommodate their
schedules," Mr. Johnson said.
During the preliminary water
service availability period, which
began April 18, the three cities
will be able to keep their respec-
tive water plants opened. Con-
struction of the Lake Regional
Water Treatment Plant is sched-
uled to be completed by July 1
- the day that permanent water
service will be available to the
entire Glades area.


Cleanup: Belle Glade makes a difference


Suomittea to INiuCorporai eorge Searing

Great American Cleanup Day


Citizens are given
the opportunity to
make a difference

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES Cleaning up de-
bris can be a way for residents
to take ownership of their com-
munities.
On Saturday, April 19, which
was also known as 'Great
American Cleanup Day', citi-
zens of the Belle Glade and
Pahokee areas had an opportu-
nity to do just that.
'The Solid Waste Author-
ity supplied participants items


such as trash bags, gloves, and
hats. It will be on a first-come,
first-serve basis, according to
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office Corporal George Sear-
ing.
In Belle Glade, the PBSO
Explorers, PBSO Eagle Acad-
emy, Palm Beach Community
College, Lions Club, and the
Masonic Hall of Belle Glade
joined residents in the efforts
to clean up various areas of the
city. About 50 people came out
to the event in support of the
cause, with many of, them be-
ing volunteers from the city's
Adopt-A-Park program.
Henderson Corporation and
Southern Waste Services do-


hated six roll-off dumpsters for
Great American Cleanup Day.
The locations of the dumpsters
- all in Belle Glade were placed
at Hand Park, the loading ramp
area, Belle Glade city hall, the
715 Mobile Home Park and on
the corner of Northwest Ninth
Street and West Canal Street
North.
Residents were encouraged
to bring their debris to any of
the dumpster locations, free of
charge. However, no hazard-
ous materials, including oil,
flammables, contaminants and
batteries, will be accepted at
the dumpster locations.

Water tank cleanup in
Belle Glade
Though the tentative date
has been set at April 25 for Belle
Glade to go on-line, it.may hap-
pen at a later date due to need
to clean up all of the city's water
tanks.
There is a major concern that
has surfaced with the tanks as it
was discovered that sediments
from Lake Okeechobee have
been settling at the tanks' bot-
tom.
According to Bill Underwood,


the city manager, the piping that
brings the water into the tanks
at the city's water plant also
brought the sediments from the
lake. Originally, the city expected
that there would be no more
than two inches of sediment in
the tanks but the city manager
reported at the special meeting
that the sediments were found
to be up to five inches deep.
The city is still in the process
of flushing out the sediments
from the tanks as it prepares to

Unsolved murder


in Belle Glade


.Sheriff's office
offers cash award

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE One year
later, an unsolved murder
continues to loom large in the
area.
The Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office (PBSO) held a
news conference on April 16 at
the Belle Glade Ice House, the
site of the homicide of Carl J.
Edwards.
It was a somber gathering
at the location as family mem-
bers and co-workers rehashed
memories of the fateful inci-
dent.
According to the sheriff's of-
fice, on Monday, April 16, 2007
at approximately 11:13 p.m.,
deputies responded to shots
fired outside Wilkinson Cooper
Produce, Inc.; 1132 N. W. 9th
St.
After the deputies arrived
on the scene, it was discovered
that the victim, of 518 Reddish
Circle in Clewiston, was found
dead inside his white 2006 Ford
Escape sport utility vehicle of
a gunshot wound, detectives
said.
Investigators described the
motive of the crime as failed
robbery attempt by two male
suspects, who are still at large.
According to Detective Fred
Rifflard, Mr. Edwards was with
another co-worker that night
as two men with their faces
covered approached them,
ordering them to give up their
money. The suspects allegedly
pulled a gun on both workers.
Fortunately for Willie Cole,
Mr. Edwards' co-worker, he
was not injured.
"I was scared to death be-
cause we wasn't expecting


nothing like that to happen,"
Mr. Cole said. "I was saying to
myself 'I guess I'm next' when
they put a gun to my head. I was
surprised that I wasn't shot.
"I saw Jeff hanging down
from his truck, blood was run-
ning out of him," Mr. Cole con-
tinued. "I went to the packing
house to tell my. co-workers
to call the sheriff's office for
help."
Both of the suspects were
described as having dark cloth-
ing, one with a hooded sweat-
shirt and one with a hat. Both
entered a dark box style Chev-
rolet vehicle as they fled the
scene, investigators said.
Mr. Edwards, a 10-year-em-
ployee of Wilkinson Produce,
was described as someone
who worked 14 to 16 hours a
day and made sure he took care
of his mother, Pauline Edwards,
and the rest of his family.
"It's just so hard right now,"
Ms. Edwards said, trying to hold
back tears. "Carl never smoke,
drank, nothing. He was such a
good son and he wasn't just a
son, but he was one of my best
friends. It's horrible to, know
somebody could murder him
cold-blooded like that."
Farrell Edwards, who also
works at Wilkinson Produce,
described his brother as an
easy-going type who never had
anything negative to say about
anyone.
"Jeff was my best friend,"
Farrell said. "It was job and
home for him. He was about
taking care of his mother and
family. We need these murders
to end in Belle Glade now and
get some closure here."
Investigators hope they can
generate new leads in the un-
solved murder and hope that
someone will come forward

Africanized bees,



subjects of reports


GAINESVILLE-Florida agricul-
ture will be featured on "Farm
Bureau Reports" on RFD-TV at
6:30 p.m. on April 23 and April
30. On April 23, the program will
focus on Africanized bees and the
challenges they .continue to pose
for Florida beekeepers, the agri-
culture industry and the general
public.,
'On April 30, the program will
profile Butler Oaks Farm in Lorida
and' Tampa Wholesale Nursery in
Dover.
The Africanized honey bee
population has grown and will
continue to grow in Florida due
to its numerous pathways into
the state and the lack of effec-
tive eradication products or tech-
niques.
The April 23 program shows
how the Florida Department of
Agriculture, in cooperation with
other agricultural stakeholders, is
developing the tools to protect the
beekeeping industry and educate
the public on how to live with
this potentially dangerous insect:
Although all honey bees will sting
when their nest is threatened by
invaders, African bees defend
their nests with less provocation,
in greater numbers and for longer
distances than their cousins, the
docile European honey, bees that
we have in the U.S.
The April 30, program will pro-
file two winners of Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson's Environmental Leader-
ship Awards.
Robert L. "Bob" Butler's dairy
farm is located on the Kissim-
mee River, which feeds into Lake
Okeechobee.
By adopting extraordinary
measures to reduce phosphorus
runoff from his dairy, Butler has


helped improve the quality of wa-
ter entering the lake. Butler has
reconfigured his water manage-
ment system to capture and con-
tain virtually all his surface water
runoff for reuse on the farm.
Also profiled will be Tampa
Wholesale Nursery, a family op-
eration in Dover founded by Roy
Davis. Currently, Tampa ,Whole,.
sale Nursery raises ove' 120 dif-'
ferent varieties of plfits,ifro6rn
ground covers to shade. .trees,
shipping more than 300,000
plants throughout the Southeast
each year.
The nursery re-uses treated
wastewater piped from Tampa
Bay Fisheries, one of the largest
seafood packaging companies in
the United States.
The 30-minute programs are
produced by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consum-
er Services for the weekly series,
"Farm Bureau Reports" on RFD-
TV as part of an outreach cam-
paign to increase public aware-
ness of agriculture, the state's
second-largest industry.
The campaign focuses on the
message, "Safe, Affordable and
Abundant: Food for Thought
from Florida's Farmers." It is a
joint effort of Florida Farm Bureau
and the Florida Department of Ag-
riculture.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 140,000 member-fam-
ilies statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an
independent, nonprofit agricul-
tural organization.

ida Farm Bureau is available on

Married homeowners



offered tax relief


TALLAHASSEE-Legislation
to eliminate an arcane feature
in Florida Law which penal-
izes Floridians who marry ho-
meowners passed a key house
committee today and is headed
for a full vote before the Florida
House of Representatives.
The measure, House Bill 647
by Representative Matt Hudson
(R-Naples) would put an end to
the practice of assessing a new
documentary stamp tax upon
the addition of the name of a
spouse to an existing deed.
"This bill ends unfair double
taxation of homeowners who
get married," said Representa-
tive Hudson.
"As the law stands, if a Flo-
ridian marries a homeowner
and adds his or her name to the


deed held by their spouse, they
pay what is in essence a mar-
riage tax.
"Yet the tax does not apply
when a spouse is removed from
a deed. The state is rewarding di-
vorce and penalizing marriage.
"This common sense mea-
sure won't solve all our property
tax problems, but it is good pub-
lic policy and a small step in the
right direction toward restoring
fairness to our current property
tax system," added Rep. Hud-
son
On a new home worth
$300,000 and with a $240,000
mortgage, the tax savings would
be $840.
HB 647 now heads to a vote
before the full Hduse.

Water restrictions begin across the South


Revised Emergency
Water Restrictions
Start Friday

West Palm Beach, FL Modifi-
cations to the South Florida Water
Management District's (SFWMD)
emergency water restrictions will
become effective Friday, April 18,
when most of the agency's 16-
county region transitions from
one-day-week residential land-
scape irrigation restrictions to up
to two-day-a-week watering.
The District's nine-member
Governing Board last week ad-
opted a "Modified Phase II Severe
Water Shortage Order" based on
improved regional water resource
conditions. Under the District's
emergency authority, decisions
to implement and modify water
shortage restrictions are resource-
based.
The new schedule for land-
scape watering will continue con-
serving 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.


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.
SFWMD Governing Board
Chairman Eric Buermann said
last week, "It's important to note
that we are not lifting emergency
restrictions. Our decision to mod-
ify the restrictions is based on the
improved conditions of our water
resources."'
Although the revised land-
scape irrigation restrictions go
into effect April 18, the SFWMD
is encouraging local governments
to refrain from enforcement until
Thursday, May 1. The goal is to
provide residents with sufficient
time to become aware of the
changes and adjust timers or oth-
er components of their residential
irrigation systems.
The modified mandatory re-
strictions apply to all water from
traditional sources, including wa-
ter from public utilities, private
wells, canals, ponds and lakes.

Highlights of the Modified
Phase II Water Shortage Order


Residents and businesses of
Broward, Collier, Miami-Dade,
Monroe, St. Lucie and coastal
areas of 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.
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. Addi-
tional watering days and times are
allocated for the establishment of
new lawns and landscapes.

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).


Landscape irrigation using
100-percent reclaimed water is al-
lowed any day except Friday, from
12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or from 4
p.m. to 11:59 p.m.

Golf courses must reduce their
allocated water use by 30 per-
cent.
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 Highlands counties should
adhere to the water restrictions
set by the Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District.

JT ADVENTURES


The week of May 19 to 25, has.
been designated as National Rec-
reational Water Illness Prevention
Week.
The goal of this year's recogni-
tion is to highlight the importance
of healthy swimming behaviors
in preventing recreational water
illnesses. State and local health
departments across the country
investigated more RWI outbreaks
in 2007 than ever before. This
upsurge is being driven by an
increase in the number of RWI
outbreaks caused by Cryptospo-
ridium ("Crypto"), a chlorine re-
sistant parasite, and is primarily as-


sociated with treated recreational
water venues, such as pools and
water parks. CDC has received at
least 18 preliminary reports on
such outbreaks for 2007. Remem-
ber, even a well maintained pool
can transmit Crypto.
Awareness of recreational wa-
ter illnesses and healthy swim-
ming behaviors play an important
role in stopping transmission of
RWls. Germs on and in swim-
mers' bodies can end up in the
water and can make other people
sick. Even healthy swimmers
can get sick from RWIs, but the
young, elderly, pregnant women


and immunosuppressed persons
are especially at risk. Specific ac-
tions you can take to promote
healthy swimming include:
*Do not swim when you have
diarrhea.
*Do not swallow pool water
or get pool water in your mouth.
*Shower before swimming,
children too!
*Wash your hands after using
the toilet or changing diapers.
*Take children on bathroom
breaks or change diapers often.
*Change children's diapers in
a bathroom, not at poolside.
Recreational water venues are


important sites for exercise and
leisure. To make this summer a
Healthy Swimming experience,
the Hendry and Glades County
Health Department and the Cen-
ters for Disease Control and Pre-
vention urge swimmers to contin-
ue to enjoy swimming, but only
after adopting healthy swimming
behaviors to reduce the risk of
recreational water illnesses.

Recreational Water Illness Pre-
vention Week 2008 can be

tionweek.htm


SFWMD declares April as Water Conservation Month


District and 100-plus Partners
Promote Culture of Conservation
West Palm Beach-The South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFW1!) M ',verning i1B3o
acknowledged April as Water
Conservation Month with a
proclamation that is supported
by more than 125 communities
throughout South Florida.
"Greater awareness of the im-
portance of water conservation
is clearly growing among all Flo-
ridians," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chairman Eric Buermann.
"We applaud the many commu-
nities that publicly share the pri-
ority of protecting and conserving
one of our state's most'valuable


resources."
Floridians consume more than
7.9 billion gallons each day of
fresh water, with more than 90,
,$ef enrt i'QtKfurptpied by under-
ground aquifers. South Florida's
* unique environment and its econ-
omy depend on the continued
availability of these shared water
resources. Formal proclamations
supporting water conservation
have been made throughout the
District's 16 counties by munici-
palities ranging from small towns
to metropolitan cities and coun-
ties.
The District is taking a lead
role in developing a comprehen-
sive water conservation program


that will encourage more respon-
sible use of water resources. Nu-
merous stakeholders are working
withtheDistrict to study ideas for
rnew r 'gl-atory' and year-round
landscape,,irrigation measures,
voluntary and incentive-based
programs and in-depth education
and marketing plans.
The group has been meeting
monthly since December, and
District staff presented their draft
recommendations to the SFWMD
Governing Board on April 9.
Throughout Water Conserva-
tion Month, the District is conduct-
ing numerous public outreach ac-
tivities, such as demonstrations of
cistern use, mobile irrigation labs


and Florida-friendly landscaping.
Other activities include inviting
TV weathercasters and other me-
dia to incorporate a daily water
conservation tip into their broad-
: casts and publications; speaking
engagements; and participation I
in dozens of community events
throughout the 16-county re-
gion. District volunteers will pro-
vide 50 Ways to Be Water Smart
tips on how to conserve water
both indoors and out as well as
brochures and other free infor-
mational materials at the various
events.

Districts and their schools


recognized for performance


TALLAHASSEE-Twelve Florida
Reading First school districts and
13 Blue Ribbon Schools (BRS)
were honored by the State Board
of Education (SBE) and Educa-
tion Commissioner Eric J. Smith
at a special awards breakfast in
Tallahassee.
"I applaud these districts and
schools for their outstanding ef-
forts to ensure that all Florida
students receive a first-rate edu-
cation," said State Board of Edu-
cation Chairman T. Willard Fair.
"These are extraordinary accom-
plishments that serve as proof of
the hard work taking place in our
classrooms everyday."
The 12 Reading First school
districts in attendance repre-
sented the top 25 percent of all


Reading First districts in Florida.
Reading First grants assist Florida
school districts and schools with
implementation of proven meth-
ods of scientifically-based reading
instruction in classrooms in order
to prevent reading difficulties in
grades K-3.
The 13 Blue Ribbon Schools
honored are part of the U.S. De-
partment of Education sponsored
BRS program. Last year, the pro-
gram recognized 287 elemen-
tary, middle and high schools
across the nation that were either
academically superior or demon-
strated dramatic gains in overall
student achievement in both
reading and mathematics. Estab-
lished in 1982, the BRS program
has since been redesigned to re-


flect the goals of higher standards
and accountability of the No Child
Left Behind Act (NCLB).
"The districts and schools here
today represent the hard-working
teachers, principals and parents
across the state who strive every-
day to improve the lives of our
children," said Commissioner
Smith. "I'm thrilled to have the
opportunity to congratulate them
personally for these remarkable
successes."

Last week in April recognized as


national infant immunization event


The Florida Department of
Health acknowledges April 19 to
26 as National Infant Immuniza-
tion Week, an annual campaign
highlighting the importance of
providing- appropriate immuniza-
tions to every child by age two.
Since 1994, National Infant Im-
munization Week has served as
a call to action for parents, care-
givers and healthcare providers
to ensure that infants are fully
immunized against 14 vaccine-
preventable diseases. This year's
theme is, "Love Them, Protect
Them, Immunize Them."
"National Infant Immuniza-
tion Week provides a valuable
opportunity for our community
to tell people the importance of
vaccinating all children," Charles
Alexander, DOH Bureau Chief of
Immunization, said. "Vaccination
is one of the most important ways
a parent can protect a child's
health."
Additionally, the National
Immunization for Polio Preven-
tion in Infants and Toddlers or
"NIPP IT" Campaign is being
highlighted during this week.
NIPP IT promotes immunization


of all children against polio at
two months of age, four months
of age, six months of age, and a
booster at four years of age. The
NIPP IT theme is, "Don't wait to
vaccinate!"
Nationwide, immunization
levels remain high and vaccine-
preventable diseases are at an
all-time low. In 2007, Florida's
immunization coverage level for
children aged two was 83.2 per-
cent. The state's goal is to reach
90 percent immunization cover-
age levels by 2010 for each of the
vaccines administered to two-
year-old children.
Today, children can be
protected from more vaccine-
preventable diseases than ever
before. Infant immunization is a
safe, simple and inexpensive way
to protect children from potential-
ly deadly infectious diseases. Ba-
bies need many immunizations
before two years of age to protect
against serious childhood diseas-
es like polio, measles, whooping
cough and diphtheria. The Cen-
ters for Disease Control offers
the following tips for parents and
caregivers:


Take babies to a doctor
or clinic for shots. Immuniza-
tions start at birth and continue
throughout the first two years of
a child's life.
At each visit, discuss
immunizations with a doctor or
health care provider. Ask if the
baby is up-to-date on shots.
Keep the immunization
record in a safe place and bring it
to every doctor's visit.
Ask the doctor when to
return for the baby's next shots.
Make an appointment, and write
it down.
In recent years, the delivery
of immunization services has
shifted from local health depart-
ments to the private sector, with
private providers and managed
care organizations administering
over 66 percent of childhood im-
munizations.
DOH promotes, protects and
improves the health of all people
in Florida.
For information about immuni-
zations, please visit the DOH web
site at www.immunizeflorida.org
or call a local county health de-
partment.

The understanding of a sacred trust: A really bad offense


The Rev. Samuel
Thomas, Ph. D+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
A little guy was dropped off
in a neighboring community
and left for some time with the
elderly man who finally became
concerned when nobody showed
up to claim him. He called the au-
thorities, the child's picture was
put on television and he was rec-
ognized.
The guardians were' located
and reported that they had acci-
dentally dropped him off at the
wrong house. The TV audience
wasn't given all that transpired,
except it was noted that the
woman "wore a wig." No charges
were filed, according to the news
report.
What piqued my curiosity was


that i was the elderly man who
became concerned about the
child and where he belonged;
apparently before the parents or
guardians. At the same time, my
news was filled with parents who
wanted their children returned.
They live in Texas, are part of a
religious cult, and have had their
children removed from their com-
pound because of allegations of
abuse.
There was a contrast in my
mind between parentswho should
have been more concerned about
where their son was, and those
who are now highly concerned
about where their children are
going to be placed -- and are re-
ported to be distressed by having
them removed.
The Lord himself caused his
parents to be upset when he was


around 12-years-old. Jesus was
on His own. He was at the syna-
gogue with His ]parents (Luke
2:41ff) and His parents left, sup-
posing He was bring looked after
by his kinfolk and acquaintances.
After a day's journey, they
were worried, not finding Him
with anyone they knew, and re-
turned to the temple where they
found Him. He receives a rebuke
and replied that He had to be
about His father's business.
Their concern springs from
their love and concern for the
Son entrusted to them. Jesus will
grow and He will tell His disciples,
"Temptations to sin are sure to
come, but woe to him by whom
they come. It would be better
for him if a millstone were hung
'round his neck and he were cast
into the sea than that he should


cause one of these little ones to
sin (Luke 17:1)."
If there is something worse
than sinning, it is causing another
to sin.
The Lord is down on those
who ignore their responsibility to
the helpless and vulnerable.
Children who are locked in
cars and left, or who are found
on school buses after the route
is over, or who are left at home
without proper provision while
parents are away receive our sym-
pathy.
The Lord who supported the
weak and the vulnerable has left
us with a conscience that is ap-
palled when they are victimized,
even accidentally or unintention-
ally.
The codes of ethics that gov-
ern our relationships with those


entrusted to our care require us
to provide extra care, going the
second mile to protect them be-
cause they are unable to protect
themselves.
The strong must use 'their
strength to protect and defend
the weak; those who look after
children must recognize the hid-
den dangers around them, the
unforeseen problems they might
encounter, the dangers that will
not be obvious to them.
I remember working with an
abused child who had been taken
from the home.
We'd talk and then one day we
walked through a mall and I said,
"Go and pick out something for
yourself from the counter in the
store."
The child looked back at me
each time an item was touched,


as if to seek my approval or say,
"Is this the one you want me to
pick?"
I realized that I was challenged
with someone who must have
lived in fear for a long, long time.
The way back would be a hard
one and the things that other chil-
dren might expect would be a
long time in coming.
The parents felt they were be-
ing "punished." Their child had
been taken away.
I saw first-hand the violation
of a sacred trust, the betrayal of a
confidence that came from God.
Lots of intervention was needed
in a very disturbed system and
home.
I pray that they, and all those
who live in a vulnerable house-
hold get it.


Said in jest, with truth behind it, "Help him, Jesus, help him!"


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
One of our assignments in
seminary was to go experience
a number of worship services
that were different than what
we were familiar with. Some
colleagues and I visited a small
country church that was having a
revival. When they found out that
they had some "preachers-going-
to bees" with them, they called
us up front to share with them a


word from the Lord. There was
no getting around it.
Fortunately, I had a scriptural
message that I had been work-
ing on, so I wasn't in too bad of,
shape. But something happened.
As I was sharing the message that
I had, a lady in the back stood up
and shouted "Amen!"
I had never been "amened"
before. It was kind of neat. I be-
came even more inspired as
"Yes, Lord!" and more amens fol-
lowed.


One of my colleagues, how-
ever, struggled when his turn
came to preach. He struggled and
we struggled in empathy with
him. Finally, the same lady who
amened me stood up, raised her
hand, and shouted, "Help him,
Jesus. Help him!"
We later laughed about it, but
"Help him, Jesus, help him!" be-
came a battle cry that caught on
throughout my seminary career.
If someone stuttered or hesitated,
you would here someone from


the back of the room call out,
"Help him, Jesus, help him!"
We said it in jest, but there
was a lot of truth behind it. When
someone -stutters or falls, our
prayer should be, "Help him,
Jesus, help him!" If a mother is
struggling with a child, "Help her,
Jesus, help her!" As you drive by
those areas of town that need
help, don't hesitate to ask our
Lord to help them. If you see
someone in an accident, a col-
league at work in need, or a friend


suffering, go to the Master Helper
and ask for Him to help out.
And when someone does
something good or right, let our
responses be, "Amen!" or "Thank
You, Lord!" Some research has
shown that we need the equiva-
lent of 17 good affirmations a
day in order to thrive. These can
come in the forms of encourag-
ing words, hugs, handshakes,
and even "Amens." The world
around us is starving for these af-
firmations. How many have you


received today? How many have
you given out?
Thursday, May 1, 'is the Na-
tional Day of Prayer. Why not see
how many people you can daily
help "thrive" between now and
then? Why not on that day join
with others and ask our Lord to
help our nation, our leaders, our
communities, and our families?
Let us all join together and pray,
"Help them, Jesus, help them!"

Victory is a process.
The more we face temptation,
the stronger we become.
We all yield to temptation at
times.
When we do, let us go to God
and confess our sins.
Then get back up and press
on for the mark of the prize of the
high calling of God.


May you grow stronger as you
face the Tempter through the
power of the word of God.
And remember... go for the
belly-button!

Woman wins State Hopping Contest
after using Thera-Gesic
BEXAR COUNTY- Mary Ann W. applied
Thera-Gesic' to her aching hip and one day later
went on to win the State Hopping Contest.
\Vhen asked what she likes most about entering
hopping contests, she painlessly replied, "None
oill" 11 k11 dayn1! business!"
K Stay tuned tfor another Thera-Gesic'&" moment!


ful because the only way the dis-
ciples knew of Christ's temptation
was that he told them. Jesus was
alone in the desert when he faced
the devil.
He shared his struggle the ex-
perience of his struggle to help
them face their struggles.
The devil tempted him in an
effort to defeat him from carrying
out the will of God. Christ's temp-
tation was real.
It was not play-acting.
He faced greater temptations
than we do.
Satan doesn't have to use his
full force against us, but he did
against Christ.
Yet, Jesus overcame him!
The temptations Christ faced are
the ones we, too, must face and
defeat if we are to do the will of
God.
Christ overcame and He will
enable us to overcome if we fol-
low his example.
Because. Christ lives in us, He
gives us his victory and power.
He lives out his victory in us.
It is a mystery but a great re-
ality "Christ lives in me" (Gal
2:20).
We can face temptation with
victory: "Greater is he who is in
us than he that is in the world" (1
John 4:4).
We know that Christ is in heav-
en but He has put the Holy Spirit
in our hearts.
The Spirit, gives us the power
to say no to temptation and yes to
God (Titus 2:1-12).
The same Lord who defeated
the devil in the wilderness will de-
feat him in your life.
You have to see yourself as a
victor if you are to be victorious.
Many battles are lost before they
are ever fought because we ex-
pect to be defeated.
We suffer from self-doubt in-
stead of trusting the power of the
risen Lord.


a.m. and then again from 6 p.m.
till 9 p.m.
Sometimes I wonder, "Why?".
What ever possessed me to
endure that kind of physical en-
durance in the Ft. Myers heat of
August remains a mystery to me
yet today!
There are lessons that 1 learned
on the practice field that apply to
life.
One is understanding the prin-
ciples of temptation.
Let me explain.
I recall one day how a coach
was particularly upset that no de-
fensive player was able to bring
down a new young-buck running
back.
About the time we would get
into' position to wrap our arms
around him, he would bob-and-
weave his head and/or feet in
such a way that the only thing we
were grabbing was the dust he
left us in as he pranced himself to
the goal line.
Finally after about an hour of
this foolishness, the coach threw
his clipboard to the ground and
grabbed several of us by the face
mask and shouted, "Stop looking
at his eyes or his feet and start
watching his belly-button!
Wherever he goes, that will al-
ways be in the middle of his body.
Go for that!" .
It was amazing what hap-
pened the rest of the afternoon.
It took some time to adjust our
thinking.
Before long, however, every-
one began to notice the coach
was right!
The more we shifted our focus
from the head and the feet of the
hot-shot running back and began
to zero in on his mid-section, the
easier it became to bring him
down.
Suddenly the young-buck
wasn't "Mr. Touchdown" after
all.
When you think about it, what
was true that afternoon with the
"belly-button-lesson" is also true
for the believer today.
We all need a method to han-
dle temptation.
If the follower of Christ is to
not get overrun by temptation
routinely, a new tactic has to be
implemented.
We have to go right for the
mid-section of the devil and bring
him down!
The temptation experience of
Christ is recorded in Scripture for


A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act. more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Eighteen Glades-area students to receive college scholarships


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -
April 10, 2008 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 scholar-
ships.
Florida Crystals Corporation
provides scholarships for many
of Take Stock's students from the
Lake Region each year; this year's
students include Eric Lawson,
Juan Calvillo, Daisy Jimenez, and
Alexander Medrano, who also
participate in New Hope Chari-
ties' programs in Pahokee,.where


Take Stock's western Palm Beach
County office is located. Three
students from Everglades Pre-
paratory Academy in Pahokee:
Shaquita Hawkins, Marshane Orr,
and Geniqua Carter; also received
scholarships provided by Florida
Crystals.
The GEO Group also spon-
sored new students this year, in-
cluding Jessie Pourch, William
Likely III, and Paulette Palmer,
who are all in seventh-grade at
Lake Shore Middle School in Belle
Glade. "This year's gifts are further
examples of the long-standing
partnerships Florida Crystals and


GEO Group have with Take Stock
in Children," said Rosanne San-
chez, Executive Director of Take
Stock in Children. "We are grate-
ful not only for these resources,
which will impact our work, but
also for the enthusiasm these as-
sociates display through volun-
teering as mentors and leaders
in our program. Along with their
support, we are working diligent-
ly to recruit local mentors from
Belle Glade, Pahokee and South
Bay, which will be essential to our
program's continued expansion
in the region."
The Take Stock program,


which is celebrating its 11 th year
in Palm Beach County, has grown
exponentially in the Tri-Cities over
the past three years, from 17 stu-
dents to almost 90. The program
also receives substantial support
earmarked for western Palm
Beach County from the Commu-
nity Foundation for Palm Beach
and Martin Counties.
Take Stock's students have
earned the "chance of a lifetime"
to further develop their skills and
graduate from college. Students
with the desire, motivation, and
potential to go to college that
come from low-income families


in Palm Beach County may be
awarded this scholarship oppor-
tunity. Beginning in seventh grade,
students sign a contract agreeing
to keep their grades at the A, B, or
C levels, obey the code of student
conduct, stay crime and drug free,
and meet with their mentor once
each week.
In return, take stock in chil-
dren promises to pay all tuition
for a four-year college education
or a two-year technical degree.
Students can attend any of Flor-
ida's 28 community colleges for
two years, followed by two more
years at any of Florida's 11 state


universities. They finish the pro-
gram as proud university gradu-
ates with a bachelor's or associ-
ate's diploma.
Take Stock in Children is a
comprehensive program that
helps children at or near the pov-
erty level to succeed by providing
volunteer mentors, student ad-
vocates/case managers, tutoring,
early intervention and long-term
support, parental involvement,
and four-year tuition only scholar-
ships for college and vocational
studies.

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

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.

home.
That's how the playoffs work
in every team sport, including
baseball.
For the Clewiston Tigers base-
ball team, winning the District
11-4A tournament would be a
big accomplishment and a step
toward the opportunity to win the
Class 4A state championship. The
last time Clewiston even reached
the state Final Four was in 1978 -
exactly 30 years ago.
But Vance Johnston, the sixth-
year head coach, knows better
that to just look for the big prize
ahead. He likes his team to focus
on one game at a time and be
prepared as best as possible for
competition.
One thing that the Tigers could
depend on in the district playoffs
is their pitching, led by Isandro
Marquez and Nick Raiola. Both
are considered great team lead-
ers as their earned run averages
(ERAs) are 3.08 and 1.96, respec-
tively.
Not only that, these two highly
regarded pitchers have put Clewis-
ton in good position to win many
of their games, even though the
Tigers finished the regular season
with an 8-10 record.


INI/Naji Tobias
Clewiston Tigers sophomore Julio Ramos slides in for a run
in their 7-6 victory over the Glades Day Gators on April 8.


Marquez can also fill in as a
reliever; he recorded a save in
the Tigers' 7-6 victory against the
Glades Day Gators on April 8.
Johnston touched on the
team's general strengths and
weaknesses.
"Our pitching has been pretty
darn good this year, they've really
improved as the season's gone
on," Johnston said. "I feel like our
defense has been improving each


game. We've been working hard
to improve our hitting, but we've
got to hit our stride by the time
we start our district playoffs."
If any player could put the
team on his back, it's Marquez
because not only is he a well-re-
garded pitcher, he's a dangerous
hitter as well.
So far, Marquez has posted a
.310 batting average with 13 hits
in 42 at-bats, 14 runs, nine RBIs


athlete also has help from the
likes of Mason Cole, Dillon Irey
and Miguel Romero all three of
them have batting averages of
.300 or above.
Overall, if one looks at the Ti-
gers while they play, it seems like
much discipline was instilled in
each of the players. Johnston attri-
butes that to his policy of making
sure the players conduct them-
selves well on and off the field.
"I want the boys to be model
citizens," Johnston said. "If they
behave in school and in the com-
munity, then the wins will take
care of themselves."
All of that could bode well
for the Tigers as they compete in
the quarterfinals of district play,
which began on April 22.
The District 11-4A champion
will be determined on April 25.
The teams in Clewiston's dis-
trict are Riverdale, Estero, South
Fort Myers, Cypress Lakes, Lem-
on Bay, LaBelle and Gateway
Charter.
The district tournament, which
will feature all of these teams, will
be played at Estero High School
in Fort Myers.

Lady Raiders win regional track meet


Glades Central's
boys' team finishes
as runner-up

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MIAMI It was a track meet
that won't soon be forgotten, to
say the least.
The Lady Raiders won the
Class 2A Region 4 regional track
meet on April 18 at Miami-Belen
Jesuit High School in convincing
fashion as they outlasted 25 other
teams in attendance, including
the Pahokee Lady Blue Devils.
The Glades Central Raiders
girls track team are now only one
step away from their ultimate
goal a state championship.
What's amazing is that the
girls have won all but one of their
track meets for the entire season
- something that not many saw
coming. -
Those team victories include
the April 10 District 13-2A meet at
Glades Central High School, the
April 3 Palm Beach County Meet
at Dwyer High. School and the
March 27 West Conference Meet
in Royal Palm Beach.
"We can't win county, confer-
ence and district and not win the
regionals," said Vanessa Anthony,
the regional champion in the 300
meter hurdles race and runner-
up in the 100-meter hurdles race.
"We would be like the Patriots. It
ain't working with us."
Anthony won the girls 300-
meter hurdles final with a laser-
recorded time of 44.81, while
her teammate, Martha Jaimes,
finished third with a time of
47.19 seconds. Both qualified
for the Class 2A state champion-
ship meet on Saturday, April 25 at
Winter Park.
The girls 300-meter hurdles
champion was edged out in the
100-meter hurdles final by Pine
Crest's Chelsea Lunn. Lunn's win-
ning time was 15.56 seconds and
Anthony's was 15.59 seconds a
.03 second differential.
Also making a big showing at
the regional meet was Lady Raid-
ers sprinter Vionni Brown, who
qualified for the state meet in the
100- and 200-meter races.
In perhaps the most competi-
tive race of the day, Brown edged


out Pahokee's Ruth Ann Kinglocke
in the girls 100-meter final with a
time of 12.43 seconds. Kinglocke,
who defeated her once before in
the event at the Lake Worth track
meet, finished second with a time
of 12.44 a .01 second differen-
tial.
Kinglocke was the only Lady
Blue Devil to qualify for the state
meet in the individual events.
Brown finished third overall
in the girls 200-meter final with
a time of 25.09 seconds, behind
Pope John Paul's Jaybria Calcote
(24.62 seconds) and Pompano
Beach's Raneisha Lamar (24.92
seconds).
The Lady Raiders 4X100 relay
team won the regionals with a
time of 49.16 seconds, while the
Lady Blue Devils finished fourth
with a time of 50.46 seconds.
Both relay teams qualified for the
state meet.
Lady Raiders senior Willisha
Wrisper finished third in the triple
jump (35-2), while seniors Na-
shay Joseph and Deasha Everett
finished first and second in the
shotput with throws of 36-7.5 and
36-6, respectively. All three will
be competing for the gold medal
on Saturday in their individual
events.
"I just feel great, I'm almost
speechless," said Jemeaul Calnek,
the Lady Raiders track coach. "I
felt like we could win regionals,
but we still had to do it.
"We proved we're the best
team in South Florida and now
we get to show that we could be
have a hand at being the best in
the state."
The Lady Raiders finished with
94 points, a comfortable margin
over Cardinal Gibbons, who was
the regional runner-up with 78
points. The Lady Blue Devilsjwere
in 12th place with 19 points.'
Boys' results at the
regionals
The Glades Central boys track
team, however, finished as the
regional runner-up as the Miami-
Belen Jesuit track team won this
event for the second consecutive
year. Belen Jesuit won its first ever
Class 2A state track championship
last year, edging out Glades Cen-
tral last year's state runner-up.
Belen Jesuit cruised to a 118


point win over 20 other teams
in attendance, including Glades
Central and Pahokee. The Raiders
finished with 88 points, while the
Pahokee boys team finished tied
for 13th with 17 points.
It proved to be a somewhat
rough going for the Raiders boys
team as senior Brunarious Mck-
ever qualified for the state meet
in the 300-meter hurdles race,
but not the 100-meter hurdles. He
finished second overall in the 300-
meter hurdles with a time of 39.22
seconds and finished fifth overall
with a time of 15.54 seconds.
What probably was the most
disappointing for the Raiders was
that in the hotly contested 800-
meter race, neither Patrick Bill-
ings nor Mychael Hollis qualified
for the state championship in the
event. Billings finished fifth with
a time of 2:03.36, with Hollis in
sixth place at 2:03.66.
It was expected that both
would have an excellent sh9ot at
winning the state title, but"inex-
perience may have done them in
with the top four 800-meter run-
ners boxing them out of the run-
ning.
There were quite a few bright
spots for the Raiders, however.
Travis Benjamin qualified for the
state meet in the 100-meter race
and the long jump. He finished
second at 10.79 seconds and was
the regional champion in the long
jump at 22-5.5.
Glades Central's Demetrius
Evans qualified in the high jump,
finishing fourth at 6-2 and Rantav-
ious Wooten qualified in the 200-
meter race as he finished third
with a time of 22.35 seconds.
"The girls have come a long
way, they have a chance to win
state," said Willie C. McDonald,
the Raiders boys track coach.
"We didn't put ourselves in posi-
tion to win the regionals. Many of
the guys did good, but they made
some honest mistakes. The expe-
rience that the young guys went
through this season, they'll ab-
solve it and grow from it."
Neither* did Pahokee, espe-
cially when the 4X100 relay team
was knocked out of the running
for the Class 2A state champion-
ship last Friday.
The team's ultimate goal fell
short in the 4X100 preliminary
race after a less-than-successful


baton exchange from Artis Ford
to Martavious Odoms.
In perhaps the most dramatic
scene of the track season, Ford
(the third leg) tripped into Odoms'
right leg as they tried to qualify
for the finals. It was caused by
a collision between Odoms and
Derrick Hopkins, the third leg of
the Miami-Monsignor Pace 4X100
team.
Pace track coach Greg Barnes
believed that Odoms was in their
lane just before the collision Pa-
hokee was in lane five, Pace was
in lane four.
"Pahokee was in our lane, so
when our third leg (Hopkins) was
coming around to the final ex-
change, he ran into Pahokee's an-
chor leg (Odoms)," Barnes said.
"What Pahokee did had an
effect on our exchange," Barnes
continued. "Our third leg (Hop-
kins) almost fell when he ran into
Pahokee's fourth leg (Odoms).
.But we got our 4and be apge
clean and finished the race."
Pace qualified for the 4X100
final, finishing second in the race,
while Pahokee finished fifth. The
top four teams qualify for the fi-
nal.
"I'm not really worried about
it, there's nothing I can do," said
Emmanuel Hendricks, the Blue
Devils track coach. "Our third
leg (Ford) ran into our fourth leg
(Odoms) and caused Martavious
to fall. The fact of the matter is
that Miami-Pace didn't want to
see us in the finals. Third place
don't look good in Miami if you're
a Miami team. They didn't want
to see Glades Central and Paho-
kee in the 4X100 relay final."
Pace went on to win the 4X100
final with a time of 41.04 seconds,
edging out Glades Central 4X100
team (41.06 best team time
since 1992).
Both Glades Central and Paho-
kee qualified for the state meet in
the 4X400 relay, finishing second
and fourth, respectively.
Pahokee's Micanor Regis
qualified in the shotput, finishing
second with a throw of 50-9 and
Glades Central's 4X800 will be in
.the state finals after finishing sec-
ond overall with a season best
time of 8:20.79.
The top four finishers in each
event qualified for the Class 2A
state meet at Winter Park.

Small later threw a touchdown pass to La'Quoisha Wright

make way for the clean drinking
water from the new water treat-
ment plant.
Belle Glade was recently
placed on a three-day boil water
restriction, which was lifted to-
day.
Another concern for the city,
according to Mayor Steve Wil-
son, is that the piping may have
to be replaced to accommodate
the clean water, though it's not
known how much it will cost to
replace the outdated pipes. .
"There's some infrastructure
issues that we have to deal with,
but we should be online in the


next couple of weeks," Mayor.
Wilson said.
The city manager added that
anywhere from 1.5 to 3 million
gallons of water per day have
been accounted for a major con-
cern of his.
"We have an amount of wa-
ter that we ship out of the water
plant and we have the amount
that we bill the customers," the
city manager said. "The differ-
ence between the two amounts
is water that's unaccounted for.
It left the plant, but don't know
where it went necessarily."
According to the city's code of
ordinances, consumers currently
pay varying amounts in water
bills per month, depending on
the water meter diameter at the
consumer's location.


A service meter diameter is
described as the meter that mea-
sures how much water goes from
the treatment plant to the city of
Belle Glade.
For example, if a resident lives
with the city limits and his water
meter diameter per meter is one
inch or less, then the monthly wa-
ter bill starts at $26.56.
But there has been growing
concern among the area's resi-
dents that when the new water
service is available to them, then
their water bills will skyrocket.
According to the water utilities de-
partment, the consumers will ac-
tually be saving money compared
to when they had to depend on
bottled water for clean drinking
purposes.


Pahokee faces water
leakage issue head-on
Over in Pahokee, the primary
issues that the city faces as it pre-
pares to go online include the
need to address its water leakage
issues and the need to replace its
water meters.
Typically, about 10 percent in
water unaccounted for is expect-
ed in each city. But in Pahokee, up
to 50 percent of the city's water
is unaccounted for, according to
Wayne Whitaker, the city's may-
or. Not only that, the mayor said
that the water leakage issues have
been ongoing for at least the past
10 years now.
"We're in the process of get-
ting new water meters replaced


right now," Mayor Whitaker said. u/ rd e
There are currently 18 water 1


meters in the city that need to be
replaced, with all of them mea-
suring up to two inches or more
in diameter. All of the meters in
questions have been considered
outdated water meters typically
need to be changed every five
years, according to the county's
water utilities department.
A contract has been approved
at Pahokee's April 8 commission
meeting to begin the water meter
replacement program. The pro-
gram is set to kick off within the
next month, city officials said.

"I think it was a great opportu-
nity for the citizens of Belle Glade
to begin the process of turning
the city around," said PBSO Cor-
poral Barry Trombley, who's also
the code enforcement supervisor
for the city. "When citizens take
ownership of their neighbor-
hoods, it's less likely that criminal
activity will take place there."
Corporal Searing was on hand
to distribute the supplies while
they lasted.
"If an area is neglected, it sends
a message that no one cares,"
