Brock's contract is approved


Whitaker: 'He'll earn
his keep, I think.'

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - Effective today,
Matthew Brock will begin his du-
ties as the new city manager of
Pahokee.
It comes after a contract ap-
proval by the city's commission-
er took place during the April
22 commission meeting, which
wasn't without some concerns


regarding its terms.
Mr. Brock's annual salary is
set to be at $82,400 - the same
salary that Lillie Latimore, the
past city manager made per
year. The new city manager will
also receive a host of benefits,
including a $400 monthly car al-
lowance.
The motion for the contract's
approval was set by Commis-
sioner Henry Crawford and
seconded by Vice-Mayor Keith
Babb. It resulted in a 4-to-I vote,
with Commissioner Diane Walk-
er opposing the action.


Commissioner Walker's big-
gest concern with the contract
terms had to do with the fact that
it could bear a significant burden
on many of the city's taxpayers,
given the fact that prices in com-
modities have skyrocketed and
the economy seems headed for
a recession
"If we're not in position to
pay that kind of money, then we
shouldn't place that burden on
the city," Commissioner Walker
said. "I cannot support Mr. Brock
making as much the previous
city manager since he's just,


come in."
Commissioner Crawford
seemed to understand Commis-
sioner Walker's point of view,
but generally had a different take
on the subject matter.
"My only opinion is that we
had a less qualified city manag-
er last time and paid her about
$83,000," Commissioner Craw-
ford said. "It's a lot of money for
a small city with many citizens
not even making half that but all
.bf us opened that door for that
kind of money to be paid out."
Commissioner Allie Biggs,


who voted to approve the con-
tract, made it clear on one thing
that Mr. Brock must accomplish
if he wants to stay with the city. '
"We need to be on one accord
with the city manager," Commis.
sioner Biggs said. "If he's not on
the same page with us, then he
won't make it here."
According to Mimi McAn'
drews, formerly the city's interim
manager and now the city attor-
ney, the contract was e-mailed
to Mr. Brock on April 21, the day

A local legend



is laid to rest


Harvey J. Poole, Sr.
was known as the
'Ebony Voice'

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - It is safe to
say that a hometown legend is
now resting in peace.
Harvey J. Poole, Sr., also
known as the 'Ebony Voice' of
the Glades and the radio indus-
try, passed away on Monday,
April 21 at the age of 94.
At Mr. Poole's funeral, held
on Friday, April 25 at the Mount
Zion A.M.E. Church in Belle
Glade, the mood was generally
peaceful as many people filed
in to pay tribute to the legend-


ary radio announcer.
During the eulogy ses-
sion, which was presented by
Reverend Melvin Hymes, the
church's pastor, he spoke on
a message entitled 'Homesick'.
Rev. Hymes told the audience
about a recent encounter with
Mr. Poole in which the rever-
end was told by Mr. Poole these
words:
"I'm ready to go home," Mr.
Poole told Rev. Hymes shortly
before his passing.
Rev, Hymes gave a visual ol
a young boy who was flying a
kite into the sky, comparing it
to heaven.
"There will be no more suf-
fering, no more crying and no
more dying in heaven," Rev.

Man stabbed in



confrontation


Victim received
multiple lacerations
from a set of keys

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - Police say Ulrick
T. Williams, 33, was stabbed
on April 24, after engaging in a
heated argument with 27-year-
old Demetrius Fitzgerald.
According to an entry pro-
vided by the Palm Beach Coun-


ty Sheriff's Office (PBSO), at
about 10:10 p.m. that day in
Pahokee, detectives with the
Palm Beach County Violent
Crimes Task Force responded
to 161 W 4th St. in reference to
a stabbing.
Investigators revealed that
when the apparent argument
turned into a physical confron-
tation, the suspect began stab-
bing Mr. Williams with a set of
keys.

Low Lake Okeecho-
bee water levels
make it possible

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - Right now,
it's a good time to plant pond
apple trees at Torry Island,
at the southern tip of Lake
Okeechobee.
The South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
took advantage of the opportu-
nity with a tour of Torry Island
on April 24.
Representatives from the
water district have set the goal
of transplanting 1,500 mature
pond apple trees as an effort
to support habitat restoration


work at the location.
"One of the reasons we're
able to do these plantings is
because the lake levels are
low right now," said Christine
Smith, a spokesperson for the
water district. "Usually, the
areas surrounded by Torry Is-
land are under water. But now,
we're trying to bring the land to
a more natural state, increas-
ing the water flow from Torry
Island to the lake."
As of April 24, the day of the
tour, the water levels at Lake
Okeechobee stood at 10.42
feet.
Those on the tour navigated
the terrain on a swamp buggy,
an all-terrain vehicle (ATV),
which is considered neces-
sary equipment for reaching
inaccessible areas such as wet-


lands.
"Due to the terrain, it's al-
most impossible to get out to
the wetlands with a regular ve-
hicle," Ms. Smith said.
Water district representa-
tives took the scenic route to
the planting site, which is about
three miles from the Torry Is-
land Amphitheater.
Eileen Safuron, a videog-
rapher from Main Sail Video
Productions Inc., documented
the tour. Ms. Safuron was im-
pressed by the efforts to clean
up the Lake Okeechobee eco-
system, including the already-
planted cypress trees and pond
apples that she saw on the sce-
nic route.
"The scientists are doing
whatever they can to help

Angela Pope is Citizen of the Year


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - For the first
time, Everglades Adventures
hosted the Pahokee Chamber
Banquet, held on April 25. Ac-
cording to Elizabeth Cayson,
the Pahokee Chamber set the
event at the facility to promote
the local attraction, which is
located right on the Pahokee
marina campgrounds.
Normally, the city's chamber
banquet is held in March, but
officials said the pool deck por-
tion of Everglades Adventures
wouldn't be ready until April.
"We decided to have the ban-
quet in April this year because
we wanted the community to


preview the exciting process
of Everglades Adventures," Ms.
Cayson said. "It's going to pro-
vide an economic boost for our
area."
There were a slew of awards
that were presented, but Ange-
la Pope was chosen as the 2007
Citizen of the Year. Perhaps the
recent opening of National City
Bank played in role in the selec-
tion, as Ms. Pope is the bank's
branch manager.
"I'm speechless, it was a
complete surprise," Ms. Pope
told the audience, fighting back
tears after receiving the honor.
"There are no words I can say
to thank you all enough. It's an
honor to serve in this town and


community. Thank you, every-
body." Ms. Pope may have also
been chosen as the citizen of
the year because her family,
the Pope Family, has played a
prominent role in the develop-
ment of Pahokee.
The Pope Family founded
Pope Farms years ago, which is
known for growing sweet corn
and beans. The Western Palm
Beach County Farm Bureau
recognized the Pope Family as
the Farm Family of the Year in
1996.
For that, the chamber rec-
ognized the Pope Family with
the 2007 Pioneer Family Award,

Habitat restoration: Planting apple trees


INI/Naji Tobias
On April 24, Sam Boyer (on the excavator digging a hole) helps his brother, Boots
Boyer and Ace Garcia (with a shovel) plant a mature pond apple tree, which came from
the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA). It's a six-foot pond apple that was recently
growing on a cap rock at the EAA, but the tree can now grow up to 18 feet because it is
in its natural habitat at Torry Island.

Two questions; no answer but a call to get busy


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I was behind a man at an
airline ticket counter waiting to
catch a flight home. He was con-
cerned about making his flight
too; arriving a bit late. He was
asking the ticket agent "will I have
time enough to get to the gate?",
"How far is it to the gate?", "Will
my luggage arrive?", "Can you
call the gate and tell them I'm on
my way?", "Is the flight closed out
yet?" and on and on. He looked
at me and I asked him "Do you
want to talk or fly?" He picked up
his briefcase and ran for the gate
without another word.
i. Another example of "do you
want to fish or cut bait?" This day
in Church calendars is Ascension
Day. It is the day celebrated tradi-
tionally when the Lord returned
t9 Heaven after His earthly stay
with us. We read that he had
met with His followers after His
resurrection and they asked Him
FLord, will you at this time re-
store the Kingdom of Israel?" He
said to them "it is not for you to
know the times or the seasons...
but you shall receive power when


the Holy Spirit has come to you
and you shall be my witnesses...
and when he said this, as they
were looking on, He was lifted up
and a cloud took Him out of sight
(Acts 1:6-9).
Then followed that two "men
in white" told His followers "Men
of Galilee, why do you stand look-
ing into Heaven?(v.10)." From
time to time people ask about the
"end times" and when the world
would come to an end. I remind
them "It is not for us to know".
Someone mailed me a chart
once predicting the date and time
and how they calculated it; it was
wrong, of course, as if they could
discern what even the Lord did
not give us to know. That's clear
enough; the question is a use-
less one to ask. There are always
enough things going on in the
world to be pessimistic about and
say "Aha! this must be the time"
but our track records of predic-
tions are only poor attempts to
second-guess God.
The boy who cried "wolf" lost
his believers and really left them
unprepared when the wolf finally
appeared. Instead the Lord says
"You shall receive power" and


they do. They stop worrying and
get busy.
When the Lord ascends, sud-
denly two angelic figures ask a
question "Men of Galilee, why do
you stand looking into Heaven?"
They realize their task is not to
contemplate but to get busy. This
busy-ness is how they honor the
Ascension of Jesus. That is how
we can honor Him too.
There are those who in the
name of religion who are mas-
ters at posing questions that are
meaningless, talking about ques-
tions that nobody is asking, and
spending time avoiding the real
work of our ministries. Someone
told me about an Eastern church
that was arguing about minor
points on the eve of the Russian
revolution; the world was in ter-
moil around them and they were
fixated on their own small mat-
ters. Navel-gazing is not our call;
the call is "Why are you stand-
ing here?" It is a call to get busy
in a world torn by wars and do
what we can do to make peace,
a world full of shortages and our
call to help share what we can, a
world facing climate change and
our need to use our resources

wisely, a world with sicknesses
that can be cured and our willing-
ness to help others with our heal-
ing gifts, a world full of all sorts
of needs and our willingness to
translate our contemplations into
acts. These are the ways we "as-
cend' in God's eyes; to rise to a
higher plane of living and show
what our belief is really about.
The passages remind us not to
worry about what we can't know
or to do more than stand around
staring into Heaven; but to put


to work what we believe and to
do something! Help somebody,
stand up for those who need our
support. Faith isn't only about con-
templation or just saying prayers
or just being "pious"; it is about
what follows from our belief.
That's how the faithful "ascend"
and prepare to ascend when our
days here are finally finished.
The question posed by Jesus'
followers got them no answer:
the question posed by His mes-
sengers was a call to action. That


question had an answer for all of
us: translate your faith into action.
The question about whether we
want to fish or cut .bait has its'
place in God's plans too: do we
want to stand there or get busy?
In the midst of all of the pessimis-
tic things going on in the world; I
can do something no matter how
small or seemingly insignificant -
as one group says "I cannot do
everything, but I can do some-
thing." That's our call - that's our
way of ascending with Him.

A call is made to the National Day of Prayer


Pastor John Hicks
First United.Methodist church
Since, the first' call- -to :prayer.
in 1775' ,'hedi'' the tContinental
Congress asked the colonies, to
pray for wisdom and guidance
in forming our nation, our coun-
trN has tome together numerous
times to seek divine guidance and
help.In '1952, a joint resolution
by Congress declared an, annual
natiorial day of prayer. In 1988,
the National Day of prayer was.
, officially set as the first Thursday.
of May. This yeart. ori 1y ist,
people will dome together in


communities all across America
at noontime to tinite in prayer for
dur troops, our readers, and our.
n- ifion. In Clewiston, we are gath-
ering at noon in Civic Park, across
from the Clewiston Inn. If you-
don't have other plans, we Would
lo% e to have you- join us., We'l[
even, .provide -lunch! Wherever
yo6u are though, please take a mo-.
ment to break from what% er you
are doing at mid-da� to turn)our
heart to our Lord. Prayer works,
and when God's people come to.
gether in prayer, great things hap-
pen for God's kingdorn
From our Nation's humble be


innings, prayer has guided our
leaders and played a vital role in
the life and history of the United
States. Americans of many dif-
ferent faiths share the profound
conviction that God listens to the
.-voice of His children and pours
His grace upon those who seek
Him in prayer. By surrendering
our lives to our loving Father, we
learn to serve His eternal pur-
poses, and we are strengthened,
refreshed, and ready for all that
may come.
On this National Day of Prayer,
we ask God's continued blessings
on our country. This year's theme,


"Prayer! America's Strength and
Shield," is taken from Psalm 28:7,
"The Lord is my strength and my
shield; my heart trusts in him, and
I am helped."
On this day, we pray for the
safety of our brave men and
women in uniform, for their fami-
lies, and for the comfort and re-
covery of those, who have been
wounded. We pray for the up-
coming election and the future of
our nation. We pray for the econ-
omy and what the future may
hold. We pray for our communi-
ties, our neighbors, our families,
and ourselves.


Prayer is the bridge between
Heaven and Earth. It is the con-
duit through which the spiritual
realm is brought into our every-
day lives. Prayer is the way our
spirits breathe. Just as our lungs
require oxygen and are designed
to seek it out, so our spirits re-
quire the presence of God and
are designed to seek Him out.
We find ourselves trying our best
to pray because it is as needful
as air for our lungs. Prayer is the
method God uses to provide not
only our daily needs from food to
shelter but also comfort, strength
and guidance. The late E. Stanley


Jones, missionary and preacher,
wrote, "Prayer ... is the opening
of a channel from my emptiness
into His fullness."
America trusts in the abiding
power of prayer and asks for the
wisdom to discern God's will in
times of joy and of trial. As we ob-
serve this National Day of Prayer,
we recognize our dependence on
the Almighty, we thank Him for
the many blessings He has be-
stowed upon us, and we put our
country's future in His hands.


Humiankiid's inherent, natural Joy Of Belonging


By Jackie Miller
All people feel the need at
sometime to belong - to other
persons in a family relationship,
to organizations for group activ-
ity,, or in a particular jpb in order
to express certain innate capabili-
ties.
The-.desire to belong is really
an expression of man's oneness

Others enter lwi\sel\ or unwise-

need to belong can be fulfilled.
If this is done in the expectation
that fulfillment is to be found in
other-peisons, then there is disap-

to every individual. But even the
satisfactory use of one's talents in
a congenial atmosphere will not
completely gratity his needs to
belong.
Essentially, man needs to be-
long because he is a part of his
universe. He requires within him-
self an 'awareness of his relation-
ships with all men everywhere,
and with all good in the World.
This need can never be satisfied
simply by joining or expressing in
outer was, but must be resolved
within the indlimdual as the real-
ization of oneness.

rather than similarities, disagree-

Even though they may belong to
organizations, in the very process
of belonging they divide them-
selves up into factions. In family
groups, they build differences of
opinion into fissures of separa-
tion. And in business, failure. to
receive personal credit or acclaim
for a job well done may result in a
sense of separateness.

Monthly meeting of
the Cowboy Church
of Palmhndale
On Thursday, May 8, Cowboy
Church of Palmdale will hold its
monthlN meeting at 6 p.m.
There will be food and fellow-


everything that others think or
feel or express, but essentially,
in your own spiritual nature, you
are one with the good in all men,
whether or not you can see it at
a given time. The need to belong
is an inner need to recognize this
oneness with good everywhere.
If you continue to think of your-
self as separate and apart, and to
emphasize differences, you will
be just one puny human being.
But man was create for oneness,
for belonging to the overall plan
of good.
Try thinking of yourself as be-
longing in this great plan, realize
your oneness with the good in all
men, and you will find the true


ship, starting at 7 p.m.
Gospel music and the word
will be preached this month by
a very young 17-year-old from
Okeechobee, a very learned man
of God.
Sheldon Woodam is an or-
dained minister of the word and
he will have your attention all the
way.
The church is located on the
corner of Fifth and Main at the
community club house in Palm-
dale.

Florida receives International Reading Award


Just Read, Florida!
initiative recognized
with Five-Star Award

TALLAHASSEE - Florida was
recently announced as one of
only two states to receive a Five-
Star Policy Award from the In-
ternational Reading Association
(IRA) this year.
The award is part of the IRA's
Five-Star Policy Recognition Pro-
gram, which encourages, states


and provinces to adopt and im-
plement policies that support ef-
fective literacy instruction for all
children. Since the program's in-
ception in 2001, only eight states
have earned the award.
"This award serves as further
verification that Florida 's reading
initiatives and strategies are mak-
ing a difference," said Education
Commissioner Eric J. Smith. "I
commend the Just Read, Florida !
team for the unwavering commit-
ment they have shown in provid-
ing Florida's children with the gift


of literacy."
The award will be officially
presented during the Council
Awards Ceremony in Atlanta on
Sunday, May 4.
Florida is being recognized for
completing stage one of the Five-
Star Policy Award comprehensive
two-stage, two-year process:
* Stage 1: State or provincial
IRA councils begin the recogni-
tion process by completing nomi-
nation forms for their state or
province.
Based on the information


provided in the forms, IRA will
determine whether the state or
province has promising policies
in each of the five star areas.
* Stage 2: The state or pro-
vincial council will work with
government officials and repre-
sentatives of IRA to determine if
the promising policies are being
implemented.
Just Read, Florida ! makes
reading a priority in Florida 's
public schools and among the
community groups and volunteer
organizations that support them.

And yet another Rose for the ages


Dan Culbert - Extension
Horticulture Agent
Beyond the stresses of daily
life, gardening can be a way to re-
lax and enjoy what's right with the
world. Because we have recently
endured more than our share
of challenging events, I have re-
solved to write something attrac-
tive for the home and garden that
can help us move into a special
place in your Florida Yard.
Today's column will introduce
a very nice plant that can be en-
joyed by anyone, the Desert Rose.
If you take the time to select and
properly care for this tropical
ornamental, you will be repaid
many times over with beauty for
years and years to come.
The Desert Rose (Adenium
obesum) is a succulent plant na-
tive to east Africa and parts of Ara-
bia. Because it produces beautiful
blooms with little care, it is a fa-
vorite of many gardeners. During
the summer months in Florida
' it will produce large numbers of
I flowers with two inch trumpet
*like shapes. Bloom can be seen in
shades of pink, rose or white.
It is a member of the Dogbane
� (Apocynaceae) Family, which in-
c eludes many other familiar topi-
R cal plants such as the Allamanda,
Carissa, Frangipani, Oleander,
0 and the milkweeds. All of these
l plants, including the Desert Rose,
*contain poisonous substances,
t and most will bleed a white sap
when cut.
The plant itself has very fleshy
, stems and will mature to form a
' large fat bulb-like structure at the
I base of the plant. It is a small to

medium sized shrub and can
grow to be 4-5 feet tall. Because
of it short growth habit, it often
looks like a natural bonsai plant.
(It is also a popular plant with
bonsai enthusiasts.)
Three elements: think Bright,
Warm and Dry
Direct sunlight to bright light
is a must for these plants all year
long. A southern facing porch
is an ideal spot for this plant. If
grown in too much shade, the
Desert Rose will not flower prop-
erly and is likely to become leggy.
In darker locations, especially in
humid places like Florida, it can
also develop plant diseases.
It thrives at temperatures up to
90 degrees but will not survive too
many hours below 40 degrees. To
protect the Desert Rose from our
occasional cold temperatures,
consider growing it in a pot. That
way it can be brought inside on
those few days when the ther-
mometer dips into less than tropi-
cal conditions. During the cooler
times, the plant is kept a little bit
on the dry side, as it does better
with a seasonal period of dor-
mancy.
The third critical element to
success with the Desert Rose is
restricted soil moisture. Remem-
ber that succulents require little
water. To achieve optimum re-
sults requires both well drained
soil and careful attention to avoid
overwatering. Water should be
withheld if day-time temperatures
fall below 80oF or the weather is
cool and cloudy. In South Flor-
ida, regularly scheduled water-
ing should be done only during

extended hot, dry weather, such
as our late spring. Be sure to feel
the soil first to insure it is dry be-
fore adding water. When it needs
water, water it thoroughly until
it drains from the bottom, then
don't water again until the soil
dries out completely.
Pots or Planted?
Adenium can be grown in any
container with proper drainage.
Unglazed ceramic pots are best
because they allow the soil to dry
out between each watering. For
the long haul, remember that if a
clay pots are used, they must be
wide enough to allow for expan-
sion of the thickened base of the
stem (the caudex) to prevent the
container from cracking. A free
draining potting mix should al-
ways be used.
Success with direct planting
of the Desert Rose into a Florida
Yard should only be considered
if the conditions are ideal for this
plant. Instructions for preparing a
raised bed of well-drained soil are
available from our office. Be sure
the spot will get lots of sun and
will not sit in a wet spot before
plant it in the landscape.
Nutrition needed by this plant
is normal for other container
grown ornamentals. Best results
can be obtained by frequent ap-
plications of liquid fertilizer (half
strength 20/20/20) when the
plant is in active growth stages.
Withholding nutrients during pe-
riods of dormancy. Slow release
granular fertilizers are also a good
choice.
Pests and Propagation
Attention to proper watering


and plant placement will take
care of most plant disease on
the Desert Rose. There are few
insect pests on this plant. Scale
and mealy bugs sometime occur
on the leaves. Soap-based insec-
ticides should be used, as certain
chemical insecticides may dam-
age the Desert Rose - so read the
label first. Careful regular inspec-
tion of the plant can catch these
critters early enough to keep them
from becoming a problem.
Growing a new Desert Rose
from existing plants takes a little
care. Cuttings can be made, but
some references report that plants
grown from cuttings may not
develop the thickened bulbous
base. Seed are rarely produced
by this plant, but if they produce
the long seed pods, growing out
the seed into plants is possible
(it is also available from our of-
fice.) Extreme hobbyists have
even been able to graft superior
selections onto a rootstock with
impressive results.

right to a free press. We have no authority to compromise, bargain away
or dishonor the principles underlying the First Amendment.

We don't play loose with the facts. We give notice to your opinions, not
ours. We encourage vigorous discussion of public issues, but try to keep
everybody's comments within the bounds of fair play.

How are we doing?

State title auest falls short for G.C. Raiders,


INI/Naji Tobias
Glades Central's Travis Benjamin finished fourth overall in
the long jump at 22-10.25 at the Class 2A state track champi-
onships, held on April 26 at Showalter Field in Winter Park.


INI/Naji Tobias
Glades Central's Patrick Billings anchored the boys' 4x800
relay team to its best time of the season (8:14.67) at the Class
2A state track championships in Winter Park on April 26.


INI/Naji Tobias,
On April 26, Pahokee's Micanor Regis puts his best effort in
the shot put as he makes a throw of 52-10, good enough to
capture the silver medal as the Class 2A state runner-up.


Vanessa Anthony
wins gold, Micanor
Regis wins silver

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
WINTER PARK - Glades Cen-
tral's Vanessa Anthony captured
the gold medal in the girls' 300-
meter hurdles at the Class 2A state
track championships in Winter
Park, held on April 26.
Although the Lady Raiders ju-
nior became an individual state
champion, it was bittersweet feel-
ing overall.
Anthony won the 300-meter
hurdles with a laser-recorded


time of 44.90 seconds, but did not
qualify for the 100-meter finals
after finishing ninth overall in the
preliminaries with a time of 16.45
seconds - the top eight runners
overall in each preliminary qual-
ify for the finals.
The most disappointing mo-
ment for Anthony and the Lady
Raiders, however, was when they
found out that they finished third
overall, falling short of their ulti-
mate goal - a team state champi-
onship.
The Glades Central girls would
finish with 30 points, , behind
Golden Gate (32 points; Class
2A state runner-up) and Raines,
which won the Class 2A state
championship with 70 points.


"Today, we came in with high
hopes like we wer going to win
the state meet," Anthony said in a
resigned tone.
"We were confident and we
had the total package but things
happen for a reason. Everyone
ran their hardest, we worked to-
gether as a team and we stayed
together."
The finish was especially dis-
heartening for senior sprinter Vi-
onni Brown, who couldn't fight
back tears after learning about
the team results.
Although Brown finished fifth
overall in the girls' 100-meter fi-
nals with a time of 12.53 seconds,
she did not qualify in the 200-me-
ter finals, finishing 11th overall at
25.84 seconds..
The girls 4X100 and 4X400 re-
lay teams each received medals
as they finished fifth (48.99 sec-
onds) and eighth (4:06.38) over-
all, respectively.
Senior shot put throwers
Deasha Everett and Nashay Jo-
seph placed fourth (37-9) and
fifth (37-1) overall, respectively,
while senior Willisha Wrisper
finished 11th overall in the triple
jump at 32-6.5.
"We didn't accomplish our
goal in the field events," Everett
said.
"Me and Nashay wanted to fin-
ish in the top two in the shot put,
but it just didn't work out for us."
Jemeaul Calnek, the Lady
Raiders girls coach, consoled the
team after finding out the team
results.
"I'm extremely proud of ev-
eryone," Calnek told the girls in a
group meeting.
"I don't doubt that we'll be
back again. I know we're going
to lose a lot next year, but I trust
everyone who will come back
next year will find a way to get it
done."
Glades Central has won a
salte-record 10 girls track champi-
onships, the last coming in 1996.
But Antrhony, who will become a
senior nextyear, would love noth-
ing more than for the Raiders to
claim their llth team state title
before she graduates.
"\\e gotta bounce back next
year and try to do it the next
time," Anthony said. "I want to
get slate for Calnek and my team
next year."
Disappointing finish
for the Glades Central
boys
Willie C. McDonald, the boys
track coach, will have to wait an-
other year to get an opportunity
to capture another state champi-
onship.
The team did not come close
to capturing a state title this year,
even as Travis Benjamin made a
respectable showing in all of his
events.
The senior placed fourth over-
all in both the long jump (22-
10.25) and the 100-meter dash
final (11.00 seconds).
Benjamin also anchored the
4X100 relay team to fourth place
overall at 41.62 seconds.
The 4x400 relay team, also
anchored by Benjamin, finished
eighth overall (3:24.00).
Interestingly, Benjamin per-
formed these events on an injured


right foot, which he sustained
during the April 18 regional track
meet at Miami-Belen Jesuit.
What had helped the senior,
according to McDonald, was that
he applied vinegar and clay on his
right foot, which proved to be a
healing element.
"Travis did a lot of preliminar-
ies and finals at the state meet,"
said McDonald.
"If he would've had more in-
dividual help in the other events,
then we could have done better.
Travis individually carried the
team."
Brunarious McKever, who fin-
ished fourth overall last year in
the 300-meter hurdles, finished
seventh this time around.
The senior clocked in at 40.45
seconds.
The 4X800 relay team had their
best time of the season (8:14.67),
but somehow they finished third
in their heat and 10th overall.
Rantavious Wooten finished
10th overall in the 200-meter race
(22.52 seconds).
The boys team finished 13th
overall with 18 points, well behind
Godby (Tallahassee), who won
the Class 2A boys track champi-
onship with 52.5 points.


Pahokee Blue Devils
va*i ifmt


Micanor Regis won the silver
medal as the Class 2A state run-
ner-up in the boys shot put (52-
10), while Ruth Ann Kinglocke
placed sixth in the girls 100-meter
finals (12.73).
The boys 4X400 relay team did
not place as they was disqualified
with one runner out of lane.
The girls -lx100 relay team
finished 121h overall 150.02 sec-
onds).
The boys team finished 26th
out of 50 teams with eight points
- all coming from Regis
The girls leam w-as lied for
'44th' out of 5- teams with three
points - all from Kinglocke.
Though the Blue Devils didn't
send many competitors out for
the state meet, Emmanuel Hen-
dricks, the boys track coach, put
the whole season into perspec-
tive.
"This whole season was a big
learning experience for me," the
first-year head coach said.
"There were a lot of positives
such as building a young core of
runners to pass the torch to. I'm
proud of all my graduating se-
niors because they gave their all
and were very respectful.
"Next season, I'm looking for-
ward to seeing the young guys
improve on what they already
learned this year."

On April 5, after coming very
close to defeating Zarak Lawson
in the 2007 final, Kentavious Mar-
shall became the undefeated 2008
singles champion by edging Law-
son 6-2, 4-6, 7-6 (3). Congratula-
tions are due to both players for


fine efforts under difficult wind
conditions. Twelve players started,
playing multiple opponents who
ranged in age from 11 to 76.
A week later, under great
weather conditions at Glades
Central Community High School


courts, doubles players enjoyed
a fine morning of competition.
As last year, the seasoned team
of Sandy Weiser - Mark Kleih-
field swept by Marshall-Lawson.
The 6-1, 6-2 final was closer
than 2007's 8-1 pro set score, but

Legend
Continued From Page 1

Hymes said. "Brother Poole saw
where he was going. He wasn't
scared, he was just ready to be
with the Lord."
"Brother Poole was homesick
because he knew Jesus was go-
ing to be there," Rev. Hymes told
the congregation shortly before
the end of the funeral service.
A man who changed a
radio personality's life
Mr. Poole, a Eastman, Georgia
native, was considered a father
and grandfather to almost
everyone he came in contact
with, including
Mike D, a radio personality at
WSWN-Sugar 900.
Mike D recalls a time in his life
when Mr. Poole had a positive in-
fluence on the relationship with
his mother. Mike D and his mother
did not have a great relationship
at the time he began working for
the radio station, which was back
in 2000.
"Mr. Poole gave me some
tough love, he was my father and
friend," Mike D said. "He asked me
about my family one day. At the
time, me and my mom weren't
really talking to each other."
"He told me, 'I can't talk to a


man that don't talk to his mom,'"
Mike D continued. "Then Mr.
Poole told me to make that phone
call to my mom. After that call,
our relationship began to heal."
Mike D added that Mr. Poole
taught him about Belle Glade and
the importance of appreciating
life.
"Mr. Poole did nothing but
great things for me," Mike D said.
"At 28. I1 thought I knew about life
but when he took me under his
wing, he made me a man."
"He was 94, but I thought he
was live forever," Mike D said
solemnly, fighting back tears. "I
know I'm very sad about it. The
community has lost its father and
its rock."

Harvey Poole's impact
on Dr. Grear
For one thing, Mr. Poole will
be certainly remembered by Dr.
Effie C. Grear, who featured him
in her 2005 book, Up From The
Muck. Dr. Grear, a West Virginia
native who moved to Belle Glade
in the 1950s, remembered Mr.
Poole as one of the first people to
make her feel like she lived in the
Glades area her entire life.
"One of the very first persons
to welcome me to the Glades was
Harvey Poole," Dr. Grear stated in
her book profile of Mr. Poole. "I
had hardly gotten settled in as a
new resident of Belle Glade when


I received a call from this gentle-
man."
"I had not previously heard
of Harvey Poole, but he quickly
made me feel welcome by offer-
ing to supply me with records for
listening from his vast collection
of records," she continued. "You
don't forget people of that cali-
ber."
A bond between two
hometown legends
Willie C. McDonald, consid-
ered by many as another home-
town legend, lived on the same
street as Mr. Poole for many
years. Mr. McDonald remembers
those days when they both would
talk almost every morning at 5:15
a.m., particularly to pick up a
newspaper from his doorstep.
"Mr. Poole always had the
time to talk to me, he was never
too busy," Mr. McDonald said.
"Wherever I was at, he found a
way to hold a conversation with
me. His talks with me were al-
ways helpful."
Perhaps Mr. McDonald remem-
bered working as a recreational
supervisor for the City of Belle
Glade's recreational department
in the summertime, way back in
the 1970s.
Mr. McDonald was stationed
at an assembly building that used
to be a gymnasium for entertain-
ment purposes.


The facility, formerly known
as Everglades Vocational High
School at the Okeechobee Cen-
ter in Belle Glade, was closed for
a period of time due to it being
deemed unusable. One summer,
Mr. Poole, who served as an as-
sistant manager at the Okeecho-
bee Center from 1939 to 1980,
assigned Mr. McDonald to help
clean the inside and outside of
the facility.
"One it was cleaned, we made
it a recreational facility again,"
Mr. McDonald vividly remembers.
"Whenever I did something good
for the community, Harvey would
always congratulate me."

Broad impact results in
distinguished awards
From 1947 to 2008 - a span of
61 years - Mr. Poole hosted the
Sunday morning 'Spiritual Hour
Program' on WSWN-Sugar 900
AM, which attracted listeners from
all of South Florida, parts of Cen-
tral Florida and in the Bahamas.
Throughout his time in the Glades
area, Mr. Poole garnered a host of
honors, including being recog-
nized by Senator Bob Graham for
his outstanding dedicated service
to his community in the state of
Florida. Mr. Poole received the
honor on November 7, 1981. In
2000, Mr. Poole was recognized
by the Belle Glade Chamber of
Commerce as its 'Citizen of the


Year'.
On June 27, 2003, the legend-
ary radio personality was recog-
nized by the Radio Announcers
Guild as having the longest run-
ning gospel program ever by an
individual at the same radio sta-
tion. For that and much more, Mr.
Poole was inducted in the Gospel
Music Hall of Fame in the same
year.
Mr. Poole was also recognized
by the School Board of Palm
Beach County as a Palm Beach
County Black Historian on Febru-
ary 21, 2007.

Leaving his legacy
behind
Mr. Poole was the proud father


of four children - Myrtle Rains,
Jamesena Marshall, Hazel P. Kin-
sey and Harvey Poole, Jr. Not only
does Mr. Poole leave his descen-
dants behind, but there are also
a host of grandchildren, great-
grandchildren and godchildren,
among others, who plan to keep
Mr. Poole's legacy alive.
"People really talked about
how Mr. Poole was an inspiration
to them as a person," said Maude
Vereen, a goddaughter of Mr.
Poole's. "He always gave advice
to you whether you wanted to or
not. He was a father and grandfa-
ther figure to most of the people
of the Glades and he'll be missed
very much by us all."

clean up the Everglades by try-
ing to reverse the negative im-
pact of the water quality in Lake
Okeechobee," Ms. Safuron said.
"The health of Lake Okeechobee
is important to the rest of Florida
because all of the water in the
state flows from the lake."
"If the lake is healthy, the rest
of everything south of it will be
too," Ms. Safuron continued. "It
is a consensus among scientists
to restore the Everglades and the
citizens are helping in the efforts
as well."
Ms. Safuron said she's taken
footage from the Kissimee River
to the Florida Keys.
According to the district, pond
apple trees provide desirable
habitat for other native species,
including the endangered snail
kite, endangered Okeechobee
_ gourd and wading birds. Pond


apples produce an avocado-sized
fruit that is sometimes called an
alligator pear or alligator apple
because of its rough skin.
The pond apple tress are able
to grow as high as 25 feet and
survive in the low-nutrient envi-
ronment found in the Everglades
ecosystem, according to district
representatives.
Arthur Marshall, the chairman
of the Marshall Foundation, and
Boots Boyer recently spearhead-
ed an idea that transported pond
apple trees from the Everglades
Agricultural Area (EAA) Reservoir
construction zone to Torry Island,
the site of the planting.
"Boots and I got this project
rolling," Mr. Marshall said. "We're
transplanting these big trees. They
were about to be destroyed as part
of the EAA Reservoir construction
project. We felt we could rescue
these trees if we had the funding
to do so."
The pond apple trees were
planted along an irrigation ca-
nal bank near the EAA Reservoir


construction zone, located south
of South Bay along U.S. Highway
27.
Funding for the tree plant-
ing efforts totaled approximately
$1.7 million from two grants - the
North American Wetlands Con-
servation Act and the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture.
The City of Belle Glade also
had a $65,000 grant from the wa-
ter district in the planting efforts,
which was later transferred to the
Marshall Foundation.
"What we're trying to do is
put the pond apple forest back
to its original state," Mr. Boyer
said. "Back in the pioneer days,
the farmers once farmed this land
and where the pond apples were
in the past, that would be your
riches and deepest soil. But back
in those days, it was more a sur-
vival thing with people trying to
feed their families."
Mr. Boyer visualizes the plant-
ing as something similar to put-
ting a filter back in an air condi-
tioning unit.


"These trees are put her to
filter the water through the Ever-
glades," Mr. Boyer said.
District representatives said
that in the past two years or so, it
documented substantial improve-
ments in water quality and clarity
of Lake Okeechobee, aided by
two relatively inactive hurricane
seasons and low phosphorous
inflows to the 730-square-mile
lake.
"Tree island restoration on Tor-
ry Island is important for the envi-
ronment and the citizens of Belle
Glade, whose livelihoods are tied
to Lake Okeechobee," said Steve
Wilson, the Belle Glade mayor.
"The city would like to thank the
South Florida Water Management
District for participating in this
restoration project."

before last week's .commission
meeting. The contract states that
Mr. Brock will be serving as an
interim city manager from now
until Sept. 30, the end of the fis-
cal year.
"Mr. Brock wants everyone
to see if this would be the right
fit," Ms. McAndrews said to the
commissioners last week. "If you
decide that you like him, then
you could negotiate an extended
contract. It just allows that if both
parties feel it's not a good fit, then
you could part ways amicably."

"Although our crime has been
drastically reduced, we still have a
great need for the community to
come together and assist us with
further reduction of crime," said
Lieutenant Reinaldo Alonso, the
commander of District 12. "This
particular case was cleared by ar-
rest, but we do have several cases
open. We need witnesses to come
forward for their community."

states that no severance pay will
be provided should the city man-
ager's service be six months or
less.
Mayor Wayne Whitaker
seemed optimistic that the city
commissioners picked the right
city manager.
"$83,000 is not a high salary
for anyone of Mr. Brock's profes-
sional position," Mayor Whitaker
said. "If Mr. Brock does a good job
for the city and saves us money,
then he'll have earned his salary.
I feel sure he's gonna do a good
job and hunt money for the city.
He'll earn his keep, I think."
Mr. Brock, who was not in
attendance at last week's com-
mission meeting, could not be
reached for comment.

with Lewis and Walter Pope ac-
cepting the award on behalf of
older patriarchs like Edward Lew-
is Pope Sr. Bishop Bud Mickens,
the pastor of the Pahokee Church
of God, was honored with a dis-
tinguished service award for
2007. He was recognized for
implementing the Drop Back in
School program, which is aimed
at assisting 16- to 21-year-old
students in receiving their high
school diplomas. ,
Bishop Mickens also spear-
headed a food feeding program
for the community about five
years ago.
"Well, I thank God for the
recognition of this award and
the accomplishments we have
achieved," Bishop Mickens said. "I
also would like to thank my wife,
members of our local church and
the community that supported us
in these endeavors."
Susan Feltner, who has been
with the City of Pahokee for 20
years, was recognized as the 2007
City Employee of the Year, while
Andrew Moriera was selected as
the Firefighter/Paramedic of the
Year, courtesy of the Palm Beach


County Fire Rescue. Pahokee Blue
Devils football head coach Blaze
Thompson accepted the award
for Athletic Team of the Year as
the football team completed its
best season ever, finishing with
an undefeated 14-0 record and
repeating as the Class 2B state
champions.
The most distinguished award
of the evening, however, may
have been a special tribute to
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of-
fice Deputies Donta Manuel and
Jonathan Wallace. J.P. Sasser, Pa-
hokee's previous mayor, was on
hand to present the honor.
The two deputies were killed
in a fatal vehicular accident on
Nov. 28, 2007.
"I think the best thing that hap-
pened to the citizens of Pahokee
was to have the sheriff's office,"
Mr. Sasser told the audience. "Six
months ago, an unspeakable trag-
edy befell our community and the
sheriff's office. To this day, we still
feel the pain and bear the scars.
The pain will pass, but the beauty
remains. This is how we need to
remember Jonathan and Donte."
Lieutenant Reinaldo Alonso,
the commander of District 12, ac-
cepted the award for the sheriff's
office.
