BG connects to regional water plant


Sediments are re-
moved from city's
water tanks

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - On Thursday,
May 1, the city of Belle Glade
connected on-line with the Palm
Beach County-Lake Regional
Water Treatment Plant.
The announcement came at
11:25 a.m., courtesy of Bill Un-
derwood, the city manager.
"It's probably the single larg-


est impact on the city in the last
30 years," Mr. Underwood said,
beaming with a big smile. "It as-
sures the citizens of the highest
quality water and source of wa-
ter."
The day before the big an-
nouncement, which was on
April 30, city officials met with
the Palm Beach County Water
Utilities Department at the Belle
Glade Water Treatment Plant
to discuss a way to enable the
county's water to flow through
Belle Glade's distribution sys-
tem.
According to Larry Peters, the


city's director of public works,
the regional water treatment
plant would be able to commu-
nicate with the city's distribution
system through a computerized
program, which will monitor
the city's distribution system, as
well as it's pressure and quality
of water.
Also, the meeting was cen-
tered on the progress of the sedi-
ment removal in the city's three
water storage tanks. Liquid En-
gineering Corporation, the Mon-
tana-based firm, was hired by
the city to perform the cleanup
of the water tanks.

Old City Hall to be renovated


Historical building,
will be renamed the
EDGE Innovation
Center

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - The Old
Belle Glade City Hall Building,
located on 33 W. Ave. A, is set
to undergo a host of refreshing
changes, courtesy of the EDGE
Center.
According to Suzanne Harp-
er, the center's executive direc-
tor, the old City Hall building
will be renamed the 'EDGE In-


novation Center,' a business in-
cubator for start-up cultural arts
and technological businesses.
The Old City Hall Building was
previously used from 1939 to
1974.
On Dec. 18, 2007, the city
of Belle Glade entered into a
25-year lease agreement with
the EDGE Center to renovate
the building, which included
a cultural grant of $362,500 in
support of the project. Support,
for the innovation center has
also come from such organiza-
tion like The School District of
Palm Beach County, Workforce
Alliance, The Arthur R, Marshall
Foundation, Palm Beach Com-
munity College, South Florida


Water Management District and
the Audubon Society of the Ev-
erglades, among others.
Jobs to be created at
the innovation center
According to the National
Business Incubation Associa-
tion (NBIA), each incubator
tenant employs an average of
4.5 people, which equates to
approximately 45 people for
the new innovation center's fa-
cility. The 45 people represent
the employees housed at the
EDGE incubator, according to
Ms. Harper.

"We physically had divers
go into the tanks and remove
the sediments," Mr. Peters said.
"To our knowledge, I have no
known knowledge that the tanks
have ever been cleaned."
According to the American
Water Works Association, the
water tanks are supposed to be
cleaned every three to five years
and sediments are not to exceed
one inch. But, as previously re-
ported, the city manager revealed
at a recent special meeting that
the sediments were found to be
up to five inches deep - about
three inches more than what


was initially expected.
Mr. Underwood added dur-
ing the special meeting, held
on April 17, that the piping that
brings the water into the tanks at
the city's water plant also, con-
tributed to the sediment .build-
up, which reportedly came from
Lake Okeechobee.
The tentative date was set
at April 25 for Belle Glade to go
on-line, but city officials felt that
more time was needed to clean
up all of the city's water tanks.

A Mother's Day



to remember


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY - There are few
moments that are more special
than individuals spending time
with their mothers on Mother's
Day, considered one of the most
important days of the year.
Most people will do whatev-
er it takes to see their mothers
on Mother's Day, which is on
Sunday, May 11. Many will have
to travel long distances to do so
this weekend, others are fortu-
nate to stay close to home.
But there are some that
won't have the opportunity to
spend time with their mothers
this year. For those individuals
who know what it's like to not
have a motherin their lives, it
can be a perplexing, agoniz-
ing, sad and empty feeling, all
in one. If the individual in ques-
tion lost a mother from early
childhood, it is especially dis-
heartening since there's noth-
ing like having that mother's
love, affection and touch.
It is imperative that each
person appreciates his/her
mother while she's around be-
cause once the mother is gone,
the void that a daughter or son.
feels can never really be filled.
That's what makes Mother's
Day so special and important to
everyone, whether she is alive
or not.
A mother lost after
giving birth
Rupert Bryan Jr., a junior
at Glades Central High School,
was born on March 19, 1991 to
Beatrice Bryan, his mother and
Rupert Bryan Sr., his father. But
at just two years old, Rupert Jr.
experienced a moment that
would change his life forever.
Beatrice gave birth to Ash-
ley Bryan on July 29, 1993,
which was supposed to be a


completely joyous moment.
But shortly after giving birth in
a cesarean section procedure,
Beatrice suffered a series of
complications in her blood.
Due to those complications,
the unfathomable occurred:
Beatrice suddenly passed away,
leaving Rupert Sr., Rupert Jr.
and Ashley behind.
"I used to cry years ago, ev-
ery time, when memories came
back to me on how Beatrice
died," Rupert Sr. said. "I cried
for a very long time. The doc-
tors. cut my wife in a C-section
when my daughter was born
and after that, I don't know
what had happened. What I
do know is that my wife died
the same night my daughter
was born." It certainly wasn't
an.easy going for Rupert Sr.
because he had to be both the
mother and father to his two
children, Rupert Jr. and Ashley.
In fact, Rupert Sr., who was
born in Jamaica in 1942 and mi-
grated to the Glades area in the
1970s, had to support his family
on his own while working with
the City of Belle Glade in the
public works department.
Rupert Jr. almost
loses his father
Only 10 years old, Rupert Jr.
already had to experience the
loss of his mother. Now, he was
faced with the possibility of los-
ing his father as well.
In 2001, Rupert Sr. was
forced to retire from the city
of Belle Glade after suffering a
stroke, which had a great affect
on Rupert Jr. Rupert Sr. suffered
the stroke on Sept. 5, 2000. "I
was kind of scared I was gonna
lose my dad," Rupert Jr. said.
"I didn't know what was going
on. When I found out my dad
was in the hospital, he looked

Health Dept. recognizes 'Women's Health Month'


Women should be
-aware of their
,personal health
, TALLAHASSEE - The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
,oins health professionals and
'citizens statewide in celebrating
'women's health.
0 Throughout the month, spe-
cial programs will be dedicated
.to increasing awareness about
women's health issues across the
lifespan and encouraging women
to make healthy decisions.
"This month we celebrate the
extraordinary progress in wom-
en's health research, practice and
programs," State Surgeon Gen-
eral Ana M. Viamonte Ros, M.D.,
M.P.H. said.
"The Department recognizes


the need for continuous efforts
to improve the health of women
in Florida. By taking simple steps
such as having regular check-ups
and recommended screenings,
maintaining good nutrition, and
exercising, women can empower
themselves and improve their
health regardless of age."
"Women's Health Month is a
great time for women to focus on
their health and to explore ways
to incorporate healthy habits into
their daily routines."
Each healthy act may positive-
ly impact a woman's health for
years to come and create a legacy
of health for the generations that
follow," said DOH Assistant Dep-
uty Secretary for Health and State
Women's Health Officer Tamara
Yang Demko, J.D.
In celebration of Women's
Health Month, DOH will host the


2008 Governor's Conference on
Women's Health, May 27-28, at
Buena Vista Palace in Orlando.
This conference will pro-
vide an educational forum for

After she was examined at the

A Short Drive to a great Okeechobee Refuge


By Nancy Dale
Looking for a nearby retreat to
kick-back and enjoy nature? The,
centerpiece at Arnold's Wildlife
Rehabilitation Center in Okeecho-
bee is a lush half-acre butterfly
garden where visitors can stroll
- 'through a setting of more than
2,000 native plants that provide
a habitat for hundreds'of butter-
flies. Arnold's Butterfly Haven
is-an extension of the wildlife
conservation efforts of the Cen-
ter which devotes more than 10
acres to homeless and injured an-
imals. Visitors are welcomed into
an "ever-changing garden in mo-
tion," as described by Sue Arnold,
owner and trained rehabilitation
specialist who treats rescued ani-
mals delivered to her care by Fish
and Wildlife 'and individuals who
find injured wildlife.
The garden replaces what Was
previously an orange grove de-
stroyed during Hurricanes Fran-
ces and Jeanne in 2004. Once
the wreckage of stumps and
overturned trees were bulldozed
,away, Arnold felt the best use of
,the land was as a haven for but-
'terflies which suffer from dimin-
ishing habitat due to human en-
*croachment.
"The butterfly garden grew
,out of my own search for peace
'when my daughter passed on a
few years ago. I wanted to cre-
,ate a place of serenity not only for
'me, but for others who visit the
'Rehabilitation Center. It became
.part of my own rehabilitation,"
says Arnold. "The garden of more
than 60 species of free-roaming
butterflies includes the habitat of


the rarely seen green and black
Malachite and the Cuban Cres-
cent." But, the life of these small
delightful creatures grace nature
for only a short time. "Beginning
its first stage as a caterpillar that
hatches from an egg laid by a fe-
male, it, devours the host plant,,
forms a chrysalis, and through
metamorphosis becomes a beau-
.tiful butterfly. The process takes
only a few weeks, but. they live
only about two weeks then the
cycle begins again," adds Arnold.
Hundreds of butterflies are at-
tracted to the garden's abundant
larval (host) and flowering nectar
plants where they stop to unfurl
their proboscis (feeding tube) to
suck-up the sweet nectar. "The
Butterfly Haven reflects a bal-
anced eco-system for the cold
blooded beauties that gravitate to
heat to lay their eggs, especially
during summer. Arnold says that
"on the hottest day of the year,
you can be sitting in the garden
with hundreds of butterflies clus-
tering around and on you." Many
of the garden's flowering plants
are donated by butterfly clubs
around the state as the Center
operates strictly on private, dona-
tions. "We do not buy any of our
butterflies. With the plight of in-
creased urbanization, we provide
not only a refuge for butterflies
and animals but a place where
Mother Nature maintains a bal-
anced setting of bugs, wasps, and
birds in this circle of life," Arnold
emphasizes. ,The garden, shaped
like Florida's state butterfly the
Zebra Longwing, has "a motion
that blends into the natural, open


setting," Arnold describes.
Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilita-
tion Center and Butterfly Haven
not only attracts native species
but more than 10,000 people a
year who stroll along the maze of
�Walkways to view up-close and
'personal, many-animals on, the
premises. There'are the Florida'
panthers (pumas) Arnold raised
as babies; the bobcats; Ringtail
lemurs, aptly named "Maddie"
and "Gascar," classified as an en-
dangered species from Madagas-
car; South American prehensile
tailed porcupines; Kinkajous from
South America; free-roaming
peacocks, chickens, egrets, and
visiting sandhill cranes. There is
Professor Opossum, popular with
children that travels with Arnold
to local schools giving students
the opportunity to observe and
feel the furry animal, introducing
him with an educational lecture.
Arnold also offers guided tours
at the Center for visiting school
groups, speaks to many local or-
ganizations, and at fundraisers.
Sue Arnold has treated thou-
sands of animals, nursed them
back to health through bottle
feedings with tender loving
care, set broken wings and legs,
mended injuries from automobile
accidents, and helped wildlife re-
cover from desertion or neglect.,
She trained under a licensed re-
habilitation specialist and has a
degree in medical technology.
She opened the center some 12
years ago and is assisted totally
by volunteers. Eleven-year-old,,
Maggfe Bucina and Sue's intern
Angela Waldron, prepare pre-


scribed food for each. animal. Lo-
cal veterinarians Drs. Jim Letcher
and Jim Harvey of Okeechobee
provide emergency services and
visits as well as Dr. Lee Corbridge
of Sebring. The Center is licensed
,by Florida Fih arid 'A ildhile and
thie L USDA. The 'Cehntr, dpe'e t
days a week, lends an opportuni-
ty for visitors to watch a release of
some of the rehabilitated animals
back into the wild, such as the six
Bard Owls that recently reclaimed
their natural territory lifting into
the wind on wings of freedom.
Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilita-
tion Center and Butterfly Haven is
located at 14895 N. 30th Terrace,
Okeechobee, Florida. Hours: 7
days 10-4 p.m. Adult admission:
$10 and children 12 and under

ty School District's Do the Write
Thing recognition luncheon on
Monday, May 5, to honor local
*students who stepped up to the
'challenge to address the impact of-
youth violence on their lives and
' offer their suggestions on what
should be done to reduce it.
"If our children are going to

,' sibility as parents and commu-
S'nity leaders to ensure they have

'to make our schools safe," said
Congressman Mahoney. "I com-
,mend our Palm Beach national
'finalists, Madeline and Nicholas,
'and I look forward to spending
.time with them when they travel
, to Washington."
Across America, students are
recognizing the prevalence of
-youth,violence and are respond-.
. .':ing to this problem as part of the
' .Do the Write Thing Challenge. By
encouraging students to' make'
, personal commitments to do
',something about the probleni,,,
'",the program ultimately seeks
to empower them to break the
'cycles of violence in their homes,
?'schools and neighborhoods.
Madeline Keye and Nicholas
- Galarza were selected as national
finalists from Palm Beach County
Middle School students for their
essays on what they see as causes
.and answers to youth violence

trator of the Office of Juvenile Jus-
tice and Delinquency Prevention

Celebrating all of our fish and puppy dog tales


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Fishermen have been known
to exaggerate, but I just returned
from a fishing trip to the Bahamas
where the fish we caught was big-
ger than I would have said it was
had it gotten away. We landed a
66 pound Dolphin (Mahi Mahi).
Can you say church fish fry from
one fish?
That made the trip for some of
us, but one of the blessings of the
trip for my wife was sitting on the
porch, taking in the fresh air, read-
ing, and spoiling Abby and Kallie,
two Bahamian canine friends we
have made over the years during
our spring trips to Hope Town.
Before Kathy packed her bags for
the trip, she packed doggy treats
for "the girls".
While in the Bahamas, we
have the girls. At home we have
Pepper. Pepper is my four legged
child who waits expectantly for
me to get home each night and
excitedly greats me with whines
of delight and great tail wagging
when I walk through the door.
You can imagine how excited she
was when I came home after be-
ing gone a week! Words aren't

adequate to describe the recep-
tion I received.
What is it about dogs that
evokes such an enthusiastic out-
reach? Whatever it is, we know
that dogs demonstrate loyalty and
obedience, and offer comfort and
a sense of well-being. They love
us regardless.
Could you imagine what
it would be like if we were to
have the kind of outreach in our
churches, homes, schools and
communities that most dogs
have? Let me suggest ten ways


we can be more Godly in our lives
by being more "dogly".
* Greet loved ones with wag-
ging tail. The wagging tail affirms
that we are home. This is where
we belong, where we live, where
we're safe, and where we're
loved.
* Eat with gusto and enthusi-
asm. Dogs know that eating is a
celebration of life. When people
break bread together, animosi-'
ties are dissipated, barriers are
broken down, and friendships are
renewed and strengthened. Eat


with gusto. Enjoy all the flavors
and spices of creation.
*On hot days, drink lots of wa-
ter and lie under a shady tree. Re-
lax, slow down and enjoy. Unplug
and give yourself a time out.
*Run, romp and play daily.
Physical exercise is as important
for the soul as it is for the body.
When we learn how to play and
stretch and get in some exercise
we'll feel better from the inside
out.
* Like dogs, be loyal to a fault.
Loyalty speaks to our relationship
with others - our spouses, our vo-
cation, our community, and our
family and friends.
*When you're happy, dance
around and wag your tail. Thank-
fulness and celebration are pow-
erful dynamics for successful and
healthy living, and are gifts we
give ourselves.
*If someone is having a bad
day, sit close by and nuzzle gen-
tly. We all have bad days. We all
need encouragement and affir-
mation. When we are depressed,
we know that it takes only a quiet
word, a gentle touch to bring us
around. ,Words are not always
needed. A gentle nuzzle speaks
volumes.


* No matter how harshlyyou're
scolded, be willing to run back
and make friends. Don't keep a
scorecard of rights and wrongs.
Carrying grudges is a heavy bur-
den. Forgive and forget.
*Avoid biting when a simple
growl will do. We do not need to
injure others by what we say or
do. We can be strong with love;
firm with kindness.
*Bark with vour buddies. Oc-


casionally running with the pack
builds and affirms friendship.
Friends are important in our life.
A friend is someone who knows
the song in our heart and can sing
it back to us when we have for-
gotten the words.
Closing thought: The reason
dogs have so many friends is be-
cause they wag their tails and not
their tongrimeso

Construction of hospital in the Glades is on track


WEST PALM BEACH-As the
Health Care District of Palm
Beach County marks the fourth
'anniversary of taking ownership
-of Glades General Hospital, the
plans envisioning construction of
a new regional hospital are now
unfolding in dramatic fashion. The
foundations are in place and the
steel superstructure has begun to
rise at the site of the new regional
-hospital being built to serve the
Palm Beach County communi-
ties bordering Lake Okeechobee.
Construction of the Health Care
District's 70-bed hospital and
medical campus, located at the
southwest corner of U.S. 441 and
State Road 80, is right on track.
"It's an impressive sight to see
the steel rising from the ground,"
said Dwight D. Chenette, Chief Ex-
ecutive Officer for the Health Care
District. "The Health Care District
has been steadfast towards a new
progressive facility and I am proud
of the progress to date."
The new regional hospital is
scheduled to open in early 2010
and will replace Glades General
Hospital, the county's only pub-
lic hospital. While many positive
'changes continue at Glades Gen-
Seral Hospital, the community is
"looking forward to a new facility
"with advanced capabilities.
i. On April 25, David Zechman
"'announced his resignation as
SGlades General Hospital's Chief
O"Executive Officer. His decision
,was based on an opportunity
:to join a larger hospital in West
*Plains, Missouri. Mr. Zechman's
Last day at Glades General Hospi-
tal was May 2.
, The Glades General Hospi-
'tal Board has named the Dis-
"trict's Chief Medical Officer, Ron
� Wiewora, M.D., as the hospital's
acting Chief Executive Officer. Dr.
'Wiewora previously served as
,the hospital's Chief Executive Of-
'highly regarded by the physicians
,*and hospital staff for his hospital
'.experience and steady leadership,
,which was exemplified during his
Service at Glades General Hos-
*pital in the height of Hurricane
*Wilma.
' "Glades General is fortunate
Sto have Dr. Wiewora back at the
.helm working with the hospital's
"highly experienced, capable and
resilient .leadership team," said
Bryan Cross, Chair of the Glades
General Hospital Board. "I am
always impressed by bur employ-


The construction of the new regional hospital in Belle Glade is moving along as planned. If
everything goes well, the hospital should open in early 2010.


ees' unwavering commitment to
the health of this community and
I know they are looking forward
to transitioning to the new region-
al hospital."
Glades General Hospital enjoys
strong physician relationships, in-
valuable community support and
the dedication of the many vet-
eran employees who have pro-
vided a high quality of care to the
community for several decades.
To support its goals to provide
quality care, over the past year
several significant improvements
have been made in the hospital's
technology, administration and
care delivery. The 73-bed JCAHO-
accredited hospital has developed
a physician manpower plan, re-
cruited a new general surgeon
and implemented a new Emer-
gency Room physician group.


The hospital has also been
moving toward a completely pa-
perless environment. Glades Gen-
eral was the first hospital in Palm
Beach County to offer bedside
Electronic Birth Registry (EBR)
and is the lead hospital develop-
ing the statewide Allcare system,
a shared data computer registry
program that will enable physi-
cians to access patients' medical
documentation from any hospital
within the network.
"It is important that the qual-
ity care our patients receive from
our dedicated and talented health
care professionals be enhanced
by modern technology," said Dr.
Effie C. Grear, Health Care District
Board Member and Glades Gen-
eral Hospital Board Member.
Once completed, the centrally-
located new regional hospital will


deliver an even greater techno-
logically advanced level of care.
The hospital will have 70 single
occupancy inpatient rooms with
additional family-friendly con-
sultation rooms. The Emergency
Room will have 16 treatment ar-
eas, three fast-track exam areas
and six private ICU rooms. A he-
lipad will allow for rapid transport
by the District's Trauma Hawk
emergency helicopters.
In addition, the campus will
offer ample parking facilities, a
Palm Tran bus stop, and space
for future facilities, such as medi-
cal office buildings. The project
is being led by the Health Care
District's, Senior Development
Executive, Michael J. Gates, who
continues to ensure that the proj-
ect stays on time and on budget.
"The Health Care District is


committed to seeing that the new
regional hospital project is com-
pleted in a timely basis," said Dr.
Stanley Pierce, Chair of the Health
Care District of Palm Beach Coun-
ty Board of Commissioners. "In
less than two years, we will have
the modern medical campus that
we need to deliver quality health-
care to this region."
The Health Care District Board
has committed $50 million toward
the $73 million dollar regional
hospital project. The Glades
Healthcare Foundation, a not-for-
profit organization formed in 2006
to support health care initiatives
in western Palm Beach County, is
leading a fundraising campaign to
complete the project.
On April 9, the Board of Direc-
tors of Palm Healthcare Founda-
tion approved a $1 million grant to
the Glades Healthcare Foundation
to support the capital campaign.
The significant grant will be used
to support the capital costs for
the Palm Healthcare Center for
Better Nutrition, a modern facility
within the new regional hospital
that will provide high-nutritional-
value meals to aid patients in their
recovery.
The center will also serve
as a community destination for
healthy eating and nutritional
education-a critical need in the
Glades region where the popu-
lation experiences high rates of
diabetes and cardiopulmonary
disorders.
"This generous gift under-
scores the importance of this new
hospital project and the need for
other community organizations,
businesses and individuals to join
us in this worthwhile effort," said
David Goodlett, Glades Health-
care Foundation Board Chair
and Health Care District Board
Member. "Witl continued com-
munity support, we can expand
the delivery of quality health care


services to this important area of
our county."

Observations


- When things seem bad


Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I am not a great student of
history. There are some things
I've observed, some things I've
lived through and I remember the
words of one historian, George
Santayana, who has stated that
"Those who do not learn the les-
sons of history are doomed to re-
peat them." I have observed that
things can run in cycles and from
what I know, many of the things
that happen to people have hap-
pened before.
Today, there is a lot of impor-
tant news. Everyone checks daily
on gasoline prices, now there is a
limit in the number of bags of rice
that you can purchase in some
stores and the word "rationing"
is used. We use the word "ration-
ing" more readily when it comes,


to water usage; the "water restric-
tions" in place seem to have no
immediate end in sight and will
likely continue for some time to
come.
We've already heard about
global warming and the melting
of the ice caps, energy resources
are being stretched with countries
that are expanding their wealth
buying fuels and raw materials,
and then there are people losing
homes and jobs being cut back
with more people out of work.
The news is not good. Through
third hand sources, someone
shared that many young persons
are worried about the re-insti-
tution of the military draft, and
I haven't heard about any really
spectacular success in our war
fronts. The message seems to be
"it takes time" and there appears
to be a lot of frustration and ques-
tioning about what is a "reason-


able amount of time."
I remember some of the short-
ages in the 1970's. In those days, I
ran my convertible in ethanol-gas
mixtures; it was a little cheaper
than gasoline and the car did al-
right on it. Sometimes, gas sta-
tions would only sell you so many
gallons and I spent time going
from station to station to fill the
tank. I have many earlier memo-
ries; being just born before World
War II; I remember my mother
standing in line in the food store
and giving ration coupons to
"Tom" the butcher, and my great
uncle putting candy in his coffee
to sweeten it.
I remember gas ration stickers
on the windshields of cars that de-
termined the amount you could
buy. There were air raid drills and
blackouts when you had to turn
out all of the lights in your house
so that cities could not be visible


during bombing raids. We didn't
have any bombs dropped on
our cities but the possibility was
always present and we were re-
minded of it by hearing the sirens
and having air raid wardens walk
through neighborhoods to tell
you "get that light out!"
With all that was going on, the
nation was well aware of what
there was to pray for, and praying
was something that people did.
Faith was an integral part of life
and churches were full.
People gathered and called
upon God. He heard them. The
war came to an end, and the
prosperity of the 1950's and 60's
that followed was unprecedent-
ed. The foundation of this coun-
try were laid down during similar
periods of hardship, persecution,
people willing to leave the com-
forts of home and come to the
new world where things were


more primitive and dangerous.
Their churches were filled;
they had much to pray about and
did. The story of the Exodus is a
story about hardships and losses
of freedom, and people who call
upon God. God heard them; God
himself calls Moses and tells him
"I have indeed seen the misery of
my people in Egypt. I have heard
them crying out... (Exodus 3:7)."
Then God promises to rescue
those who call upon Him. When
times get bad, salvation and
change come when people call
upon God. The religious fervor
that appears during hard times is
something I've seen in my own
life and in what I've read in our
history through the ages. Is God
somehow punishing us? No, I
don't believe that. Is God some-
how mad at us? I believe He may
more pity us for what seems to
be happening rather than being


mad. What I do believe, though,
is that out of bad things can come
good. One of the good things
that has come out of past bad
times has been a restoration of
faith and a new understanding
of our need for God. I've seen it
and read about it before. I believe
that it is likely to happen again.
In the meantime, I hope we find
faith, restore a sense of values in
society, respect the place of reli-
gion in people's lives and find the
fervor for faith equal to the fervor
of many of those who would take
our lifestyle away.
We will see what happens. If
there is a prophetic element in
what I have learned and observed,
though,, it has opened to me this
course that can really make a dif-
ference. God will hear our pleas.
He will answer our prayers.


Be it humble, or exalted, may I fill it with a will


By Jackie Miller
There used to be a song in our
hymnals that said:
There's a place for every work-
er, in the vineyard of the Lord;
Where with all our powers
united, we may toil with one ac-
cord;
There are needy hearts now
waiting, for the help which we
can give;
Let us urge them faithfully on-
ward, let us show them how to
live.
There's a place, oh may I find
it, where my mission I can fill,
Be it humble, or exalted, may I
fill it with a will.
Help to serve, my generation,
with a heart of truth and grace;
Help me, Lord, from this time
onward, find and occupy my


place.
There is no one on earth just
like you. Sometimes people feel
that they have nothing to offer to
thier world.
They wish that they could sing,
preach, paint a beautiful picture,
or write an inspirational message.
Because they can't contribute in
a certain way, they bemoan their
lack of that particular ability and
think of themselves as small and
insignificant.
You need not render beautiful
music, preach a sermon, translate
lovely ideas into paint on canvas
in order to make a contribution to
your world.
Each person has special tal-
ents, and your work is to develop
and express the abilities God has.
given you.


If everyone could sing, or if ev-
eryone could write, there would
be no special joy in the expres-
sion of the individual.
But each one has some special
talent; each has a unique ability
'that is his own.
And that is good! All of the
varied talents combine to forrh
the kaleidoscope that makes for
interesting living.
But you may say, "I can't do
anything important!"
Yes you can!
Each one can do something
that fills a certain place in the
overall pattern of good.
But as long as you deny your
ability to accomplish, as long as
you concentrate on your inability
to do a particular thing, you will
fail to accomplish that which will


bring a sense of fulfillment in your
life.
What do you like to do? Fre-
quently the things you like to do
are the things you do best, and
they may be a more important
contribution to your world than
your realize.
The one who loves to work
with flowers, or repair appliances,
or do handwork of various kinds,
can (and does) contribute to the
good to others.
A very special talent is the abil-
ity to remain bright and cheerful
under all conditions. The one
who always has a cheery smile
and a friendly greeting is welcome
everywhere.
A good listener, too, fills a
definite need. If you have talent
for extending the hand of under-


standing to others and helping
them find thier own answers, by
all means use this ability and give
thanks for it. Yours is an impor-
tant gift!
Perhaps your contribution
is in the realm of your work or
your daily activity. You may have
thought it unimportant. Take an-
other look.
You don't have to be a minis-
ter or a humanitarian to make the
world a better place. You can do
it by cheerfully helping someone
make the right purchase for his
needs.
You can do it by lending a help-
' ing hand to a fellow worker who
runs into difficulty.
You can certainly make the
world better by teaching either
children or adults, even though


the material may seem stereo-
typed or routine.
There is not such thing as a
dead end. Nothing is useless or
unimportant, when you put into
it your desire to contribute some-
thing of beauty, or something of
good, to your world.
Don't concentrate on the
things you can't do. Instead, de-
velop the good qualities that you
do have, unfold the ideas you can
express best, and then make your
world a better place to live.
The potential is within you.
You should read Romans 12 and
I Corinthians 12. I Corinthins 12:7
says "But to each one is given the
manifestation of the Spirit for the
common good."

his is to give notice that Hendry County has submitted an application for a Commu-
nity Development Block Grant (CDBG) fundsunder the Disaster Recovery Initative

activities:
Construction of approximately 1.0,000 square foot building that will be utilized as
an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) for Hendry County and infrastructure to
support the EOC family. Proposed infrastructure improvements include roadway,
water and sewer facilities. The EOC site is located approximately 5 miles west of
the City of LaBelle at 3888 Congen Road in unincorporated Hendry County.
This notice is required by Section 2(a)(4) of Executive Order 11988 for Floodplain
Management, and by Section 2(b) of Executive Order 11990 for the Protection of
Wetlands, and is implemented by HUD Regulations found at 24 CFR 55.20(b) for

MOORE HAVEN - The Moore
Haven Terriers track program has
been a model of success for many
years, especially this one.
For the first time in eight years,
Moore Haven has produced a
state champion as Antwonne Mc-
Cloud won the gold medal in the
high jump at 6-4 in the Class IA
state track championships, held
at Showalter Field in Winter Park
on April 25. The previous state
champion in track for the Terriers
was Trjmaine Perry - he won the
gold riiedal in the long jump at
21-6 back in 2000.
'Antwor,,-. steadily improved
as the season progressed," said
Stevea Petti, the 17-year head
coach. "He. was very coachable
and was considered a hard work-
er. He'led'the team by example.
Even though Antwonne won
the high jump, he didn't put that
above his teammates."
The senior high jumper was
also the high jump champion
in Moore Haven's district track
meet, held.at St. John Neumann
School in Naples and in their re-
gional meet, held at the Commu-
nity School of Naples.
McCloud posted a high jump
of 6-6 at the regional rheet, while
his best performance.of the sea-
son was when he recorded a
jump of 6-8 at the LaBelle Invita-
tional. He was named the MVP of
that meet.
Perhaps the most important
athlete of the entire program,
however, was Venisha Lewis. The
senior, a three-time state medalist
this year, finished third overall in
the 100 meter dash (12.85 sec-
onds) and sixth overall in the 200
meter dash (26.66 seconds).
Lewis finished third in the 100
meter dash two years in a row
and it's the first time she placed in
the 200 meter dash finals.
Maybe the most remarkable


INI/Naji Tobias
The Moore Haven Terriers track program has completed one of the most successful sea-
sons in recent memory. Pictured: Antwonne McCloud, Amparo Aguilar, Elazarus Blackmon,
Keivon Bell, Xavier Fagan, triple medalist Venisha Lewis, KaNeidra McPherson, Joshua Pat-
terson and Tiara Perkins. Also in the picture are assistant coaches, in alphabetical order:
Lesie Hare, Nathan Koetje, Wayne Reese and Norman Spero. Overall, according to Steve.
Petti, the head coach, the team earned seven state medals.


achievement that Lewis has made
is that she made five straight Class
1A state championship appear-
ances - all the way back to when
she was in the eighth grade. Lew-
is qualified for the 100 meter dash
in all five years, while making ap-
pearances in the 200 meter dash
and the 4X100 relay team three
and four years, respectively.
The girls 4X100 team, an-
chored by Lewis, finished fifth
overall at the state meet (51.62
seconds).
The girls track Most Valuable
Player (MVP) for the past four
years, Lewis notched another
MVP honor after winning the
100 and 200 meter races at the
LaBelle Invitational - Lewis' 100
meter time was recorded at 12.06
seconds, her personal best.
Lewis also was the top overall
girls runner in the 100 and 200
meter races at both the district
and regional meets this year.


Catch him if you can
On May 1, the first day of spring football practice, Pahokee
Blue Devils wide receiver De Joshua Johnson makes a
nice catch as he tries to elude defensive back Carlos Lam-
mons in a passing drill.


"Venisha probably has had
more first place finishes in the
regular season than anyone I've
ever coached," Petti said. "She's
not a vocal person, but she's an-
other one who leads by example.
Venisha's always strived to over-
achieve in whatever she does. It's
a pleasure to coach a student-
athlete like that because she's
self-motivated and it carries over
to the rest of the team."
Petti has led Moore Haven to
16 consecutive state track cham-
pionship appearances, as Ela-
zarus Blackmon (long jump, 100
meters), Keivon Bell (200, 400
meters), Xavier Fagan (400 me-
ters) and Joshua Patterson (100
meters) also qualified for the
Class 1A state meet.
Though the Terriers girls track
team finished 17th overall (13
points) and the boys team fin-
ished tied for 20th overall (10
points), the program should 'not


be disappointed as the archrival

purpose of promoting economic
development in the Glades area,
each year an average of four ten-
ant firms exit the incubator, cre-
ating 10 new jobs overall - that
equates to 2.5 jobs per firm.
As four newbusinesses replace
the outgoing firms, according to
Ms. Harper, an additional 4.5 jobs
per company are created annu-
ally, equating to 18 new jobs.
"The economic benefit of our
business incubator translates to
the creation of 28 new jobs each
year," Ms. Harper said. "This
doesn't even begin to count its
effect on the increase in tax base


and the multiplier effect of the
wealth creation of the company
or its employees."
Ms. Harper is careful to note
that the figures only relate to the
in-wall incubator facility's estab-
lishment and doesn't include the
creation of out-wall businesses,
which is the EDGE Center's pri-
mary source of business.
Construction of the
exterior and first floor
The first phase of the innova-
tion center project began on Feb.
12, which focuses on the first floor
and the outside of the facility. Be-
ginning with the inside of the first
floor, the innovation center will
include a nature center/gift shop,
a fresh-food cafe that will feature


a variety of low-calorie cuisines
and a graphic arts design group
center.
The first floor setup will also
feature a dance/music group, as
well as an architect/engineering
business start-up space. To com-
plete the first floor design, a large
patio area will be set in place, in
addition to a small museum/ex-
hibit lobby, which will feature a
variety of historical artifacts.
"The whole building will be
historical and it will focus on
what the Glades area stands for,"
Ms. Harper said. "We'll be going
through the entire history of the
Glades."
Speaking of historical artifacts,
the lobby will be featuring a dia-
mond that's primarily made of


preserved historical wood from
the old City Hall building.
On the outside of the building,
it will be painted in a white color
and will become an environmen-
tally 'green' facility.
The environmentally 'green'
features, according to Ms. Harper,
will feature solar paneling, ener-
gy-efficient air-conditioning, an
extensive window replacement
that will also be energy-efficient
and an all-new roof, among oth-
ers.
"We're going to have systems
that are environmentally friendly,
which will reduce our operating
costs," Ms.. Harper said. "It will
be the first of its kind in Belle
Glade."
The first phase of the project


is slated to be completed by De-
cember 31, 2008.
Construction of second
floor
Proposed features of the sec-
ond floor include a state-of-the-art
wireless computerized meeting
hall for a variety of meetings and
training centers, also known as a
multi-purpose hall, according to
Ms. Harper. Also in place will be
a nutritionist and fitness trainer,
which will be available to mem-
bers of the incubation center.
The EDGE staff offices will be
located on the second floor, ac-
cording to Ms. Harper.
Phase two of the innovation
project is set to be finished.by De-
cember 31, 2009.


The total project costs are
estimated to average between
$750,000 and $1.5 million, which
doesn't include the $800,000
needed for parking, lighting, se-
curity and technological improve-
*ments, in addition to $221,400 for
furnishings.
"This could be the beginning
of the rejuvenation of Down,
town Belle Glade," said Bill Un'
derwood, the city manager. "I'm
very excited about this project'
because not only will it provide
good jobs, but the incubator will
provide many opportunities fot
the citizens of the city."

Living in South Bay for the
majority of his life with his father,
it was a legitimate concern for
Rupert Jr. since the two shared
a great bond with each other.
But fortunately for Rupert Jr., his
father survived the stroke, even
though it would take a year to ful-
ly recover from it. "To be frank, t-
never crossed my mind that I was
sick with this stroke," Rupert, Sr.

took six days and seven hours to

moved on April 22.
"The original contract specified
completion time to clean all three

derwood stated in a memorandum.
"The task included the removal of

back because I have something

Moving forward
Those two instances could
have destroyed the will of a lesser
person, but Rupert Jr. allows the
circumstances to make him a
stronger person, inside and out.
Playing football as a Glades
Central Raiders offensive/defen-
sive lineman over the past two
years has given the 17-year-old
an opportunity for a bright fu-
ture. With his recent showing at
a NIKE Training Camp, held in Mi-
'ami, Rupert Jr. impressed many
observers there as colleges such
as Ball State University, Florida
International University, Troy Uni-


was due to the unforeseen consid-
erable amount of sediment found
in the tanks and the amount of time
required to clean the tanks."
The additional work equates to
an additional three days and five
hours to the original contract, ac-
cording to the memo prepared by
Mr. Underwood.
City officials are now attempt-
ing to disinfect the three tanks to
ensure that quality water will exist
throughout the city.
"The implementation has gone
very smooth and I'm extremely
pleased about it," Mr. Underwood
said.


versity, Pittsburgh, University of
Central Florida and Georgia have
shown great interested in him.
Displaying excellent blocking
techniques and footwork skills
at the camp, to name some abili-
ties, Rupert Jr. was named the of-
fensive line Most Valuable Player
(MVP) of the Miami NIKE Camp
last month. Considered by many
as a humble and well-liked individ-
ual, including his father, Rupert Jr.
is also excelling in the classroom.
Rupert Jr. has scored a 19 on his
ACT exam and currently has a 3.0-
grade point average, which puts
him in great position to play col-
lege football in 2009, the year of
his high school graduation.

self an opportunity to make his
family proud.
Putting Mother's Day in
perspective
Though Mother's Day will be a
sad time for Rupert Jr., it will end
up being more like an empty feel-
ing for him because he doesn't
have any lasting memories of
his mother. Rupert Jr.'s mother,
Beatrice, is laid to rest at Forever-
glades Cemetery in Belle Glade,
where he and his father will be
spending part of Mother's Day.,
"Usually, me and my dad go to
the grave on Mother's Day and put
flowers down," Rupert, Jr. said,

Information for Glades


Beatrice Bryan
"A lot of people say I look like my
mom, that's what people tell me
about her. Other than my mom
being a good woman, I don't


know too much about her."
Mother's Day will be yet an:
,other bonding experience for
both Rupert, Jr. and his father. Ir1
fact, Rupert Sr. lets it be known
that he appreciates having his son
in his life.
"Wherever I go, my son is al-
ways with me," Rupert, Sr. said.
Surely, Rupert, Jr. will remem-
ber these moments with his father
since being with him on Mother's
Day is quite possibly the best gift
both the father and son can give
each other.
"I never really knew my
mother, so there's not much else
I could do on Mother's Day," Ru-
pert Jr. said.
