A life saved by divine intervention


Emergency appen-
dix surgery prevents
a potential fatality

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - A life-saving ex-
perience is something that the
individuals involved usually nev-
er forget.
For one thing, B'ythablia Cher-
isme, a freshman from Pahokee
Middle-Senior High School, will
always remember his encoun-
ter with Dr. Yves Pierre-Louis,


a pediatrician from the Florida
Community Health Center out of
Pahokee.
The 16-year-old, a native of
Haiti who has been in the United
States since September 2007,
faced a potentially fatal experi-
ence when it was discovered
that he had a ruptured appendix
just two months after entering
the country.
On November 25, 2007, while
attending service at St. Philip
Benizi Church in Belle Glade,
B'ythablia's grandfather, Domi-
niqa Cherisme, 63, noticed that
he was in great pain around his


right abdomen. The pain trans-
ferred all the way to the boy's
right leg.
Just before Mr. Cherisme and
his grandson left church service
that day, they were told by fellow
parishoners about Dr. Pierre-
Louis, a pediatrician who could
help save the boy's life.
Dr. Pierre-Louis recently visit-
ed a host of churches, including
St. Philip Benizi Church, to con-
duct presentations in Creole - the
boy's native language - about the
health center. "After I was told
about Dr. Pierre-Louis, a friend
said that he takes care of sick


Short-moment stories: Encourages reading


INI/Naji Tobias
On May 13 at Rosenwald Elementary School, Chauncey Hopper (in an orange shirt with
a microphone) reads a journal entry that he wrote about a recent trip he took to the
Kennedy Space Center. Ms-Sharon Johnson, the third grade teacher, instructed him to
start reading his short-moment story with a title and timeline, which was entitled 'Ken-
nedy Space Center on May 7.'


INI/Naji Tobias
Ms. Sharon Johnson, a third grade teacher at Rosenwald Elemenentary School in
South Bay, facilitates the class discussion of Chauncey's journal entry, which received
mixed reviews. Some students said that Chauncey's entry stayed on topic, while others
thought it could have been better.


Shooting leaves one man dead


Victim report-
edly shot after cell
phone conversation

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - A conver-
sation on a cellular phone last
Saturday night resulted in a
deadly encounter for the 40-
year-old man.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office, on May
3, Agusto Simaj was allegedly
walking back and forth on
Southwest Ninth Street in front
of his residence at 680 S.W. 9th
St. Mr. Simaj's family told depu-


ties that it was common for
him while he would talk with
his wife in Guatemala.
But at about 8:50 p.m., not
long after the phone conversa-
tion, Mr. Simaj would be found
lying on the ground with a gun
shot to his abdomen, officials
said.
According to information
provided by the sheriff's office,
witnesses told the deputies that
several people living the area
actually heard three separate
distinct noises that sounded
like gun fire.
It was also revealed that the
victim was eating at his resi-
dence, prior to leaving his home
to make that fateful phone call.


The victim was later trans-
ported to Glades General
Hospital, then airlifted to the
Delray Medical Center Emer-
gency Room (E.R.). He was
pronounced dead at the medi-
cal center.
So far, no suspects have
been identified as the investiga-
tion is ongoing at this time.
The sheriff's office urges
anyone who was in the shoot-
ing area or may know anything
about the incident to contact
the Palm Beach County Violnt
Crimes Task Force at 688-4000.
You could also contact Crime
Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.

reached at ntobias@newszap.com.


people without insurance," Mr.
Cherisme remembered.
The fateful discovery
Throughout the night, the
pain just kept getting worse for
B'ythablia. It got so bad that Mr.
Cherisme had to bring the boy to
the community health center -
B'ythablia came to the doctor as
a walk-in patient.
On November 27, 2007, after
being observed by Dr. Pierre-
Louis, Mr. Cherisme was in-
formed that his grandson was in
grave condition, confirming the
ruptured appendix, also known


as appendicitis.
Appendicitis is an infection
of the appendix which gets in-
flammed and can burst. When
the contents of the intestine spill
into the abdomen, it can create
a systemic that can cause death,
if not treated right away. "The
family thought the boy had just
a stomach illness," Dr. Pierre-
Louis said. "They gave him herb-
al tea because they didn't have
any health insurance and was
concerned that he couldn't see
a doctor."

WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY - A Thursday morning
drive of U.S. Highway 27 turned
out to be a fatal encounter for a
23-year-old Clewiston woman.
According to information
provided by the Florida High-
way Patrol, on May 8 at about
7:05 a.m., Mayra V Flores, the
driver of a 2000 GMC sport-util-
ity vehicle, was traveling south-
bound in the inside lane as she
just. crossed the Hendry-Palm


Beach County line.
Just three miles into Palm
Beach County, the Mile 83
marker, preliminary indica-
tions revealed that the woman
reportedly veered out of the in-
side lane and entered the grass
median.
The sport-utility vehicle re-
portedly re-entered the high-
way, overturning several times
before coming to a stop in
the grass median between the
southbound and northbound
lanes on U.S. 27., the highway
patrol said.

That is what 42-year-old
Fabian Starks and her two chil-

Tuesday morning, as they dis-

According to the Palm Beach

the back corner of Ms. Starks'
son's bedroom, located at 290

Smart safety tips for spending time outdoors


With warmer weather arriving,
the call to head outdoors can't be
far behind.
Boating, camping and RV rec-
reation, fishing, canoeing and
numerous other outdoor sports
enjoy a popular resurgence each
summer.
Unfortunately, so do acci-
dental injuries, according to the
Consumer Product Safety Com-
.mission.
That's why having the proper
,gear on hand to reduce the threat
:of injury is so important, say
'safety experts from First Alert and


Lehigh:
*Pack a first aid kit. Include
bug spray, sunscreen, antiseptics
for cuts and scrapes, a snakebite
kit and pain relievers along with
other emergency supplies.
* Learn CPR and how to treat
serious injuries. Cardiopulmonary
resuscitation (CPR) and basic first
aid skills are essential, especially
if you find yourself in an isolated
area.
CPR skills can help prevent
choking hazards and resuscitate


victims after a swimming acci-
dent.
Know how to deal with breaks,
sprains, head and neck injuries.
*Safely secure outdoor recre-
ational and camping gear.
A tie-down that absorbs shocks
and holds items firmly in place is
best.
A new stretch cord called
Cordzilla from Lehigh features
a bungee encased in a flexible
polypropylene rope for added
strength to help keep items safe
and secure.

"USDA's orange crop estimate unchanged


LAKELAND-Florida's 2007-
i2008 orange crop estimate re-
'mained the same at 168.5 million
#boxes, according to the U.S. De-
"partment of Agriculture (USDA)
which today released a revised
Citrus forecast.
"This remains a good sized

costs associated with pest and
disease management and energy
prices."
The 168.5 million boxes are
made up of 80.5 million boxes
of Early-Mids, 3.0 million boxes
of Navels and 85 million boxes of
Valencias.
The Florida citrus industry saw
a decline in orange production
from 230 million boxes to 129
million boxes during the five-year
period between the 2001-2002
season and the 2006-2007 season.
This reduction was due in iargt-
part to the effects of hurricanes,


development and pests and dis-
eases such as citrus canker and
greening. A 168.5 million box or-
ange crop would represent about
a 31 percent increase from the
2006-2007 season. The USDA is-
sues its initial estimate in October
and then revises it each month
through the end of the citrus sea-
son in July.

cast is available from the Florida

line at http. . wi\\n\.nass.usda.go%/

cations/Citrus/cpfp:htm. .


* Keep campfires low and
away from brush, trees, cars, tents
and other potential hazards.
One stray spark from a camp-
fire is all it takes to ignite nearby
brush or potentially toxic materi-
als.
* Keep a fire extinguishing
spray nearby and never leave fires
unattended.
Make sure family members
know where fire extinguishers


are located and how to use them.
First Alert@ offers a portable and
effective new fire extinguishing
spray, TundraT, designed for easy,
one-hand use.
No pins to pull or hoses to
maneuver, and Tundra cleans up
with a damp cloth, so it's environ-
mentally friendly.
*Watch the weather. Keep a
portable radio on hand to stay on
top of current weather forecasts..
Inclement weather can arrive


with little warning, so stay in the
know and be prepared to move
to a nearby shelter.
The summer fun is about to
begin, with more than 59 million
Americans planning to take to the
water this season, according to
the National Marine Manufactur-
ers Association.
In addition, one-third of Amer-
icans place themselves among
the camping public based on a
recent Travel Industry Association
survey.

Prices for fuel continue to rise at a seemingly alarming rate. However, the Let's Refuel
America Program helps provide stability to that problem with a simple solution.
Using a special card, program participants pay $2.99 per gallon for a maximum number of
gallons (which varies depending on model) of unleaded gas or diesel fuel in each of
the next 3 years. So no matter what the price at the pump says, you'll never have to pay
more than $2.99/gallon.
To qualify for the program, you must purchase or lease an eligible Chrysler vehicle from
May 7 through June 2, 2008 and have a valid MasterCard or Visa credit card or check card.
These are some challenging times. Fortunately, the Let's Refuel America Program is
doing what it can to help you get through it.

West Palm Beach, FL (May
2008) -- For the seventh year,
the Palm Beach Harley Owners
Group hosted a chili cook-off and
conducted a raffle to win a 2008
Harley Fatboy Motorcycle to ben-
efit Hospice of Palm Beach Coun-
ty's children's programs. Nearly
$40,000 was raised at this year's
event at John Prince Park putting
the total close to $300,000 raised
in the past seven years.
Chet and Donna Karnas of
Royal Palm Beach had the wining
ticket for the Harley Fatboy. "We
purchased the ticket at the South
Florida Fair Bike Night because
of the wonderful job Hospice of
Palm Beach County did in caring
for my mother who passed away
in 2002 of Lymphoma. The care
shown by the doctor and nurse in


making my mother comfortable
at home before she passed on
and the relief that they gave to us
- the caregivers - was outstand-
ing. We called and they were al-
ways available day or night," said
Donna Karnas.
The chili cook-off, live music,
silent auction, and children's ac-
tivities entertained the more than
3,000 people attending the event.
The winners of the Chili Cook-Off
were: 1st place - Corbett Chili
High Test, 2nd place - Pepper
Pirates, 3rd place - Corbett Chili
Regular, 4th place - Ja-Makinmee-
Jerk Chili, and 5th place - Week-
end at Bernie's Chili.

Letters to the Editor


Monday night the Belle Glade
City Commission voted 2-1, with
Mayor Wilson voting against, and
Martin and Miller voting to collect
almost $1 million dollars in past
due sanitary sewer bills that the
city of South Bay owes us. Mayor
Wilson ranted and raved at the
other commissioners not to send
a letter stating that we would no
longer provide services to the City
of South Bay. What is he getting
out of not making them pay. Even
though he tried, he did not prevail
in the issue and like I said before,
the motion passed to send the let-
ter. The bad news is that Wilson
was supposed to sign a collec-
tion letter today, and.did not! Let
me remind you that the Mayor of


Belle Glade is equal to all of the
other commissioners. When a
motion passes, it is his duty and
job whether he likes the decision
or not, to follow through with the
motion that carried. It is unethical
and derelict of duties for him not
to sign the letter that the Commis-
sion approved.
After doing the math, the con-
clusion is that if you take the wa-
ter department's 6,000 customers
(inc. businesses and people not
hooked up to sewer) it will cost
each of us $166.56 (to pay off their
past due amount) plus $11.67 ad-
ditional dollars per month ,(for
ongoing services that they can't/
won't pay for) for South Bay's wa-
ter bill. Have you all checked your


water bill lately? Can you afford
an increase? Additionally, if you
don't pay your bill for one month,
what do they do? They turn your
water off! Again, what is Mayor
Wilson getting out of not making
the City of South Bay pay?
South Bay needs to pay up,
and not in installments because
as we all know they are broke.
They owe other agencies that of-
fer services money and pay little
to none of the bill. Citizens of
Belle Glade pay attention and call
your commissioners. Tell them
that if South Bay does not pay nei-
ther should you!
Also, why is Steve Wilson driv-
ing a city car back and from work
in South Bay? Gas is at least $3.75


a gallon. We are paying for him
to drive wherever he wants while
we are walking, carpooling, rid-
ing the Palm Tran or just staying at
home. This is an abuse of power!
Call or e-mail your commission-'
ers it is our money!
Call 561-992-1608 or e-mail
dbuff@belleglade-fl.com to speak,
to your Commissioners; Kendall,
Asia-Holley, Wilson, Martin and
Miller. Let your voice be heard or,
continue paying for South Bay's
past debt of $1 million and grow-,
ing and the Mayor to live the high
life driving a city car while you,
pay the hugh gas bill!
Sincerely,
Sherrie Dulany

New technology means new sources of stress


The modern computer age
comes with new kinds of stress.
One of my "pet peeves" is the
stress associated with dealing
with email hoaxes.
Some of these hoaxes claim
to associate health hazards with
everyday foods. Others associate
health benefits with questionable
substances or practices.
For example, these emails
make claims such as "scrubbing
sponges contain agent orange,"
to "disposable chop sticks cause
cancer" to "there is lead in lip-
stick." (All of these claims are
false.)


." .' A

Healthier

Life
The hoaxes quite often sound


convincing, quoting researchers
by name, claiming the informa-
tion was announced on the To-
day Show or claiming to actually
know a "friend of a friend" some-
thing happened to.
At best, these emails are a joke
that wastes your time. (Such as
the email claiming the Titanic
was carrying a large cargo of
mayonaise bound for Mexico,
and when it was sunk the Mexi-
can people declared a day of
mourning -- sinko de mayo.)
At worst, the email hoaxes are
connected to web sites that at-
tempt to steal your money or your


identity or infect your computer
with spyware or a virus.
These email hoaxes are often
forwarded by well-meaning, if na-
ive people, who don't mean any
harm.
If you receive an email that
sounds odd or a little too interest-
ing, before forwarding it to your
entire address book, check it out.
Don't subject your friends and
family to another email hoax.
There are quite a few web sites
devoted to researching and de-
bunking email myths and hoaxes.
A few are:
www.snopes.com


www.truthorfiction.com/
www.hoax-slayer.com/
www.urbanlegends.about.
com.
While the internet can be a
source of health hoaxes, there
are also some many good web
sites that offer useful information.
When online, consider the source.
And if the web site is trying to sell
you something -- beware.
For general health information,
there are a few web sites I trust. I
like www.peoplespharmacy.com,
which is the web site of the Peo-
ple's Pharmacy radio program on
National Public Radio. I also like


www.health.harvard.edu/ which
is the public information web site
for Harvard Medical School. The
Center for Disease Control web
site at www.cdc.gov also has a lot
of useful health information.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially im-
portant if you are on any prescrip-
tion drugs. Some drugs interact
badly with foods that would oth-
erwise be considered "healthy."


April rainfall not enough to drop water use limits


WEST PALM BEACH - The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) announced on
Wednesday, May 7, that South
Florida received above-average
rainfall in April, continuing a
moderate improvement since
February. District-wide rainfall
averaged 3.44 inches in April,
about one inch higher than the
historical average for the month
and slightly higher than the 3.35
inches received in March.
April marks the third con-
secutive month of above-average
rainfall during the dry season this
year.
South Florida's water supply
has been impacted by a multi-
year rainfall deficit, although
groundwater levels in most areas
of the District are benefiting from
three months of above-average
rainfall.
The District's 16-county region
remains in a water shortage, and
landscape irrigation restrictions
remain in place.
Since the start of the dry sea-
son on November 1, 2007, Dis-
trict meteorologists recorded an
average of 12.73 inches of rain
District-wide.
Rainfall from early Febru-
ary through early April brought
improvements, but through the
end of April, dry season rainfall
remains 1.86 inches below the
historical average.
In some southern and inland
areas of the District, including por-
tions of Broward, Glades, Hendry,
Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm
Beach counties, dry season rain-
fall is now close to historical av-


erages as a result of the February
through early April rains.
Most coastal areas and coun-
ties north of Lake Okeechobee,
however, remain one to four
inches below historical average
rainfall, including Collier, High-
lands, Lee, Martin, Okeechobee,
Osceola, Polk counties and east-
ern Palm Beach, Broward and
Miami-Dade counties.
Water managers remain cau-
tious, because May can be one
of the drier months of the year. In
May 2007, Lake Okeechobee lev-
els dropped about ten inches that
month due to low rainfall and
high evaporation rates.
Florida's wet season typically
lasts about five months, begin-
ning in late May or June and con-
tinuing through November 1.
The wet season on average
produces two-thirds of the re-/
gion's annual rainfall.
Current Water Levels
At 10.09 feet above sea level
this morning, Lake Okeechobee
levels have dropped about an
inch since the last week of March
and are now about 3.5 feet below
the historical average for this time
of year.
However, Lake Okeechobee
levels remain more than half a
foot higher than they were at this
time in 2007.
Groundwater and surface
water levels across most of the
District remain at average or
above-average levels, although
they have declined over the last
couple of weeks due to low rain-
fall amounts typically observed
as the end of the dry season ap-


preaches.
Water levels in the Kissimmee
River are near regulation levels
and higher, similar to this time
last year. Water levels in the three
Everglades Water Conservation
Areas . in western Palm Beach,
Broward and Miami-Dade coun-
ties are also near or above their
regulation levels for this time of
year and nearly more than a foot
higher than this time last year.
Water Restrictions and long-
term conservation planning
Emergency landscape water-
ing restrictions remain in place
throughout South Florida to help
manage the water supply impact-
ed by a multi-year rainfall deficit.
Outdoor irrigation accounts for
up to 50 percent of water use.
Details about current outdoor
water restrictions are available at
www.savewaterfl.com.
Separate from the emergency
watering restrictions, theDistrict
is also seeking public input on a
proposed year-round landscape
irrigation rule.
The rule is a part of the Dis-
trict's comprehensive water con-
servation program to bring about
a permanent conservation ethic
throughout South Florida
Public workshops to continue
gathering input on the proposed
year-round landscape irrigation
rule are scheduled for the follow-
ing dates:

Faith is the substance of things hoped for


By Jackie Miller
Hebrews 11:1 says, "Faith is
the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen."
Faith is the base, or foundation
stone, on which your whole life
is established. But do you know
just exactly what you believe? Ro-
mans 10:17 says, "Faith cometh
by hearing and hearing by the
Word of God."
There is simple test that will
show you what you do believe
about God, about yourself, about
your world, and about your fel-
low man. Take a look at the way
you are acting and reacting to life,
and you will have a clear picture
of what you believe in your heart.
The test of faith is action and
perseverance--activity and per-
sistence. The words you say and
the thoughts you think, you think
mean little compared to the moti-


ovation that determines the actions
of your life.
For instance, a group of people
gathered for a meeting to pray for
rain. Only one small boy brought
an umbrella. The people said
(and perhaps even thought they
believed) that they were going
to pray for rain, but they had no
real faith that God would answer
their prayers, or they would have
prepared for the eventuality. Their
actions spoke louder than their
words they said.
What do you believe about
God? Your actions will tell you.
If you feel deeply that God cares
for you and wants to help you to
greater good, you will take steps
daily that indicate your trust in
God and your willingness to co-
operate in bringing forth His plan
of good in your life. You don't just
say a prayer occasionally and then
decide that it didn't work. Rather,


you will revamp your whole life to
express an abiding faith that God
will help you when you take all
the steps you can to help yourself.
You will act in faith, and you will
persist. You will not give us easily,
or fall back into an old attitude of
blaming God for your difficulties.
You will have an umbrella handy
when you pray for rain. You will
act on faith, and thus shape your
life for good.
What do you believe about
yourself? Many time a brash, bel-
ligerent attitude covers a deep in-
feriority complex; such a person
may feel that he cannot compete
in his world, so he seeks to alien-
ate others and blame them for his
shortcomings. If you truly believe
in yourself, your basic goodness,
your abilities, and your poten-
tial, you will act to bring forth
that which you are. You will not
blame others for your problems.


Right for a different reason


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D. +
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
In the summer of 1980,1 I spent
six weeks in a program with
young Canadian adolescents.
It was the summer when Ron-
ald Reagan was running against
Jimmy Carter and they asked me
who I thought was going to win. I
told them "Ronald Reagan." They
were shocked; telling me, "but
Jimmy Carter is such a nice per-
son!" I replied "Yes, but Ronald
Reagan comes closer to our na-
tional hero - John Wayne." Rea-
gan was elected; at his inaugu-
ration the Iranian crisis that had
everyone's attention came to an
end with the release of the hos-
tages. My reasons for suggesting
Reagan would win had nothing to
do wth logic, polls, speeches, can-
didates election teams, debates or
any of the things ordinarily touted
by the media. My answer was
based on an observation about
some of the signs I saw in our
national psyche and values, and
a person who was running. Per-
haps by coincidence I was right,
maybe by making a good guess,
maybe by picking key character-
istics on where to bet. I note that
Jesus calls upon His detractors,
the Pharisees and Sadducees, to
"read the signs." They ask hm to
"show them a sign from Heaven
(Matthew 16:1ff)." He answers
_ them by telling them that they
already know how to read the


signs: "When it is evening, you
say 'It will be fair weather; for the
sky is red.' And in the morning 'It
will be stormy today, for the sky
is red and threatening' You know
how to interpret the appearance
of the sky, but you cannot inter-
pret the signs of the times (vss
2-3)." It is that Jesus expects us
to read the "signs of the times"
and then act on them. The signs
were there for me when I was
asked to predict; only they were
different signs than others might
have used or expected. Part of my
answer was' related to my belief
that people make choises that
are not always sane, rational or
predictable by customary means.
Jesus called on the Pharisees
and Sadducees to look at what
was before them and what they
had already seen, and use their
abilities to discern the truth from
them. in spite of all of our best
reasons, we spend money, get
married, move around the coun-
try, hold crazy religious views,
change jobs, vote for candidates
for all sorts of reasons that have
little or nothing to do with reading
the signs in front of us. Ican see
why the Lord refused to give addi-
tional signs when He was asked;
He knew it wouldn't do any good.
People go on being peopleany-
way, that seems to be the way we
are! Besides, there were a host of
signs already around and all over
theh place and He told them so.
Pick the right ones and you're
home free - if (and it's a big "if")


you follow them. My sympathy
is for those who do not read the
earthly signs but think they have
insight into the Heavenly ones. It's
about loving the ones who seem
unlovable, about protecting the
vulnerable and weak, about living
responsibly, about sharing what
we have, about being as reason-
able as possible with others and
in our beliefs, about respecting
how God made the world and
acting accordingly, about wor-
ship, about being thankful, about
honoring our commitments to
others and the world where we
live, about using the knowledge
God has revealed to us in right
ways. The signs abound about
what happens when we do such
things and about what happens
when we don't do them. Some
things in our world have gotten
better as a result; some have got-
ten worse. Sometimes we got it
right; and sometimes we were
wrong. One thing for certain;
we'll ahve to keep doing it over
and over until w get it right. More
signs? "Proof?"= No! living as
intended andthen watching the
great things that come from be-
ing at one with others, the world
and with God. Maybe this doesn't
make sense with the ways of the
world; but the world isn't always
rational anyway. Maybe it will
work out all right for us when we
read God's signs and follow them
for a different reason.


Flying high, wings like eagles


Your actions, and your persever-
ance, will demonstrate your basic
belief that you were created to be
something special. And your be-
lief, put into action, will make it
so in other ways.
What do you believe about
your world? The way you react
to the things that happen, near
you or halfway around the globe,
tells much of your attitude toward
the universe in which you live.


Believe in basic goodness, and
you will find it easy to make your
reactions to your world positive,
constructive, and creative.
What do you believe about
other persons? You may say that
you believe all men are equal, but
your actions toward other indi-
viduals will convey what you re-
ally think. Sometimes it is easier
to speak in platitudes than it is to
live the same ideas in everyday


experience. What you do always
speaks louder than what you say.
Take a look at your life, your ac-
tions and reactions.
Observe the attitudes that are
most persistent in your mind.
When you do, you will have a
clear picture of just what you be-
lieve about God, about yourself,
about your world, and about oth-
er persons. If you don't like what
you see, you can always change!

Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The eagle teaches its young
to fly on their own. The parent
pushes the baby bird out of the
nest and the eaglet tumbles help-
lessly through the air, plummet-
ing to earth and certain death. But
then, just in time, the parent-eagle
swoops under its young, catches
the bird on its own strong, spread-
ing wings, and bears it aloft again
on sturdy pinions to try once
more to fly.
God uses this example of the
eagles and eaglets in Exodus 19:4
to help illustrate His relationship
with us when He states, "You
yourselves have seen what I did to
Egypt, and how I carried you on
eagles' wings and brought you to
myself." In Deuteronomy 32:10,
God says He guards His people
as the "apple of His eye," like an
eagle that stirs up its nest and hov-
ers over its young, that spreads its
wings to catch them and carries
them on its pinions.
God, who is majestic in power
and might, teaches us that He
accommodates Himself to our
weakness, and bears us up with
His ever sturdy strength. It's reas-
suring when we remember that
we have the wings of God. hover-
ing over us to meet us at our point
of need.
Back in the 1980's Bette Midler
came out with the song "You are
the wind beneath my wings".
There was a story in the Read-

ers Digest-Magazine about a man
who saw this song come to life
when he saw a man roller-skating
toward him with an owl, wings
outstretched, clinging to a leather
patch on his shoulder. As they got
closer to him, he realized the owl
was missing part of one wing.
The skater stopped for a
breather, and the man struck up a
conversation as the skater rested.
"Twice a day we go out so he can
pretend he's flying," the skater
shared. "I'm sure he would repay
you if he could," the man replied.
"He already has," the skater said.
"I used to weigh 25 pounds more
and I smoked." With that, the
skater and bird took off again".
As I reflect on the wings of God
uplifting me in my times of need,
I think of the song, "The Wind
Beneath My Wings", but mostly
my mind turns to the many won-
derful people God has placed in
my life who are and have been an
encouragement to me.
There have been times when


my wing was broken and I was
flapping around in circles on the
ground when someone came
along to help me fly again.
I have come to the realiza-
tion that we and those around us
many times are called to be the
hand of God - reaching out and
lifting others up and helping them
to fly when they can no longer fly
themselves. We can be "the wind
beneath their wings" and God's
provision of strength.
From ancient times the eagle
has been regarded as a symbol
of courage and power because of
the altitude at which it flies.
The strength it displays in flight
is remarkable.
God had this kind of strength
and flight in mind for us when He
said, "But.they that wait upon the
Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings
as eagles." (Isaiah 40:31)
With wings as eagles, we can
lift others up for the glory of God,
and all fly high.

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news - the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of
what happens in our community IS good.)

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

NOTICE
Independent Newspapers will
never accept any advertise-
ment that is illegal or con-
sidered fraudulent. In all
cases of questionable val-
ue, such as promises of
guaranteed income from
work-at-home programs - if
it sounds too good to be
true, chances are that it is.
If you have questions or
doubts about any ad on
these pages, we advise that
before responding or send-
ing money ahead of time,
you check with the Better
Business Bureau at
772-878-2010 for previous
complaints.
Some 800 and 900 telephone
numbers may require an
extra charge, as well as
long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our
reader of these charges in
the ads, but occasionally
we may not be aware of the
charges. Therefore, if you
call a number out of your
area, use caution.

ed under vanous permits issued by the South Flonda Water Management Distrct (SFWMD) since Apnl 15, 1993. The mine is
currently operating under Permit No. 22-00245-S, issued by the SFWMD. Under the operating agreement between the Depart-
ment and SFWMD, the Department is processing the ERP application for the existing system and the expansion area
The application is for the addition of a 355.2 acre tract known as the Langford pasture, increasing the area to be mined in the
South Deese tract by 13.4 acres, relocating the Greensmix area in the North Deese tract, mining the existing 0 7-acre Greensmix
area, increasing the mining area south of the existing Greensmix area by 3 9 acres, and relocating the processing plant to the
north and west of its current location The total size of the property is increasing from 539.2 acres to 894.4 acres. The size of
the surface water management system will increase from 375.5 acres to 588.4 acres. The total area of extraction will increase
from 338.5 acres to 548 1 acres.
The current permit does not approve dredging or filling in wetlands or other surface waters. The proposed expansion will include
dredging or filling of a 0.77-acre ditch that was originally cut in uplands (upland ditch 8) in the South Deese tract. In the Lang-
ford pasture, 1.92 acres of upland cut ditches (upland ditches 1 through 7) and 0.16 of an acre of isolated herbaceous wet-
lands (wetlands P and 0) will be dredged No wetland mitigation is required.
The Langford pasture will be interconnected with the existing mine area through culverts under the private access road allowing
recirculation of mine process water. The total size of the impervious area will remain as 6.1 acres. The permitted has a consent
to easement right-of-way (extract sand) from the Army Corps of Engineers on 33.42 acres. The estimated depth of mining (lake
depths) is approximately 50 feet below natural ground which is 49.24 feet below the normal water level Wetlands that will not
be dredged or filled are protected by a minimum 50-foot upland buffer. Wetlands H, I, N, and 0 must be monitored for stress
assessment.
No changes to the method of mining will occur. It will continue to operate as a closed-loop system. The sand will be extracted
via an electric hydraulic dredge approximately 50 feet below the level of the floating dredge. No unauthorized chemicals or ad-
ditives are allowed in the mine processing. The processed sand is transported off site via trucks.
The post-mining land use of the 894.4 acre mine will be 350.1 acres of improved pasture, 331.1 acres of water (includes littoral
shorelines), 116.0 acres of freshwater marsh, 70.9 acres of cropland and pastureland, 9.6 acres of wax myrtle uplands, 6.5
acres of borrow pits, 6.1 acres of entrance roads, 3.0 acres of live oaks, and 1.1 acres of mixed upland hardwoods
No off-site discharge of water from the mining operation is authorized below the design 100-year, 3-day storm event. The total
area served by the system will be 588.4.acres. The operator is required to comply with the signed and sealed Best Manage-
ment Practices Plan. The end of the construction phase of this permit will be 20 years after this permit is issued. This permit
will replace and supercede Permit No. 22-00245-S, issued by SFWMD.
The existing'mine and proposed mining areas are located on the east side of US 27, approximately three miles south of Palmdale,
in Sections 11, 12, and 13, Township 41 South, Range 30 East, and in Sections 7 and 18, Township 41 South, Range 31 East,
Glades County,
Under this intent to issue, the permit is hereby granted subject to the applicant's compliance with any requirement in this intent to
publish notice of this intent in a newspaper of general circulation and to provide proof of such publication in accordance with
section 50.051 of the Florida Statutes (ES.). This action is final and effective on the date filed with the Clerk of the Department
unless a sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is timely filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57, ES. as provided be-
low. If a sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is timely filed, this intent to issue automatically becomes only proposed
agency action on the application, subject to the result of the administrative review process. Therefore, on the filing of a timely
and sufficient petition, this action will not be final and effective until further order of the Department. When proof of publication
is provided, if required by this intent, and if a sufficient petition is not timely filed, the permit will be issued as a ministerial ac-
tion. Because an administrative hearing may result in the reversal or substantial modification of this action, the applicant is ad-
vised not to commence construction or other activities unIl the deadlines noted below, for filing a petition for an administrative
hearing or request for an extension of time, have expired and until the permit has been executed and'delivered. Mediation Is not
available.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's action may petition for an administrative proceeding (hear-
ing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57, ES. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Under rule 62-110.106(4), EA.C., a person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's action may also request
an extension of time to file a petition for an administrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown, grant the re-
quest for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be filed with the Office of General Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A
timely request for extension of time shall toll the running of the time period for filing a petition until the request is acted upon. If
a request is filed late, the Department may still grant it upon a motion by the requesting party showing that the failure to file a re-
quest for an extension of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is filed, other persons whose substantial interests will be affected by
the outcome of the administrative process have the riht to petition to intervene in the proceeding. Intervention will be permitted
only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the tiling of a motion in compliance with rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.

tice under subsection 120.60(3), ES., must be filed within 21 days of publication of the notice or within 21 days of receipt of

ment for notice of agency action may file a petition within 21 days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publica-
tion.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of
any person to file a petition for an administrative hearing within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that per-
son's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under sections 120,569 and 120,57, ES.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must contain the following information:
(a) the name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known;
(b) the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner's repre-
sentative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of
how the petitioner's substantial interests are or will be affected by the agency determination;
(c) a statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency decision;

paragraphs 120.569(2)(c) and (d), F.S., a petition for administrative hearing must be dismissed by the agency if the petition
does not substantially comply with the above requirements or is untimely filed.

require a remand for an administrative hearing, the applicant has the right to seek judicial review of the order under section
120.68, ES., by the filing of a notice of appeal under rule 9.110 of the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the Clerk of the

the persons named above at the address indicated. Failure to file a petition within
the 21 days of publication of notice, or other receipt of the written notice, which-
ever first occurs first, constitutes a waiver of any nght such person has to an ad-
ministrative determination (hearing) pursuant to Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Fla. Stat. as provided by Subsection 28-106.11(4) Fla. Admin. Code.

sue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the District a me-
diation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the

ing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule

VSA West Fest
VSA West Fest was a huge suc-
cess. The festival was held at the
Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center
on Thursday, April 3. This festival
serves more than 500 students
from local schools. It includes
student art exhibits and perfor-
mances as well as participatory
art activities. This year's theme
was "Planet Earth, Conserve and
Create". Student artists from Gove
Elementary, Canal Point and Dis-
covery Key exhibited imaginative
artworks created from recycled


materials with earth themes.
Guests enjoyed performances of
music, song, and dance by local
schools attending and by profes-
sional musician, Mr. Brian and the
Bobbits. The Gove Elementary
Steel Drum Band played outside
the center for everyone's enjoy-
ment while students created their
crafts. The students also enjoyed a
fabulous picnic lunch on the lawn
of the PBCC campus. A good time
was had by all!

Art News
The Historical Society of Palm
Beach County and the School Dis-
trict of Palm Beach County have
partnered to institute a yearly art
contest titled "Florida History
Through Art". This contest en-
courages students to learn about
their communities and Florida
history. This year, the theme was
influential Floridians from 1500 to
1850. Students had the opportuni-
ty to attend a musical play held at
the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Cen-
ter entitled "Once Upon a Time
in Florida". As a follow-up activ-
ity, the students visited the Media
Center and conducted research
on the Seminole Indians. The
students then selected a famous
Seminole or an aspect of the
Seminole culture and illustrated


it for the contest. The following
three students will represent Gove
Elementary in this contest: Walter
Gutierrez, Danny Paniagua and
Jennifer Lopez. Both Walter and
Danny drew portraits of Seminole
Indian Chief, Osceola while Jen-
nifer drew a picture of a Seminole
village in the Everglades. Their
artwork was outstanding!

Glades Day's softball team falls in title quest


INI/Naji Tobias
The Glades Day Gators softball team, coached by Sherri Paez, made it to the Class 2A state
Final Four tournament in Plant City on May 7 - this came as a result of winning the Class 2A
regional championship on April 29. The state team consisted of Kaitlyn Barningham, Kailey
Boss, Alana Byrd, Cassidy Carter, Jordan Hawkins, Alli Jimenez, Brianna Lohmann, Alex
Lynn, Amber Martyn, Brittany McDaniel, Jennifer Onega, Zoe Perry, Chelsea Powell, Phlysica
Powell, Samantha Sgroi, Melinda Soriano, Alyssa Sullivan and Chelsie Underwood.


Gators lose in Class
2A state semifinals to
Wewahitchka, 1-0

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE - Reaching the
Class 2A state Final Four in soft-
ball is no easy feat, especially
when there are a slew of teams
throughout Florida in the classi-
fication.
But this year, the Glades Day
Gators did just that, fulfilling its ul-
timate goal for the season - well,,
almost.
Though the Gators softball
team made it to the state tour-
nament, they would lose to the
eventual Class 2A state champion,
Wewahitchka, in a heartbreaking
1-0 loss on May 7. The state tour-
nament'was played at Plant City
Stadium in Plant City.
With two outs in the bottom
of the fifth inning, Glades Day's
defense made an error on a er-
rant throw from the catcher to the
shortstop as Rebecca Barnes, of
the Wewahitchka team, scored
the game's only run.


Other than that, the pitching
and defense basically put the Ga-
tors in a position to reach the Class
2A state championship game. But
in the end, it would come down
to a seventh-inning scoring drive
that ended with a game-ending
strikeout. Glades Day was in po-
sition to win after having runners
on second and third base, but the
opposing pitcher, Samantha Rich,
struck out the final two batters to
end the game.
"I knew it would come down
to who would make an error,"
Paez said. "Our offense shut
down and our defense held their
own, so when our shortstop mis-
handled the ball late in the game,
I figured it would be tough for us
to come back from that."
Rich struck out 18 Gators,
while allowing just two hits in the
tightly contested state semifinal
game.
Kailey Boss, a junior pitcher
who finished the season with
a 13-7 record with an earned
run average (ERA) of 1.16, was
equally impressive, allowing just
four hits to the opposing team.
It's worth noting that if not for
the error, then Boss might have
emerged the winning pitcher in


.the contest.
"Kailey pitched an awesome
game," Paez said. "She did a great
job holding down a team that led
the state in home runs this year."
Boss, who helped lead the
team to an overall record of 21-9,
was proud of the team's efforts
in the game and throughout the
season.
"Everyone worked together as
a team, so going on the mound, I
knew I had the backup I needed
to take us to state," Boss said.
"Hopefully, we get to the state fi-
nal an win it all next year."
Glades Day, who was this
year's Class 2A-District 2A-13
runner-up and Class 2A-Region 2
regional champion, knows what
it takes to become state champi-
ons - the Gators achieved that feat
in 2004.
What helped the Gators make
the amazing run to the Class 2A
state Final Four was taking each
game one at a time, preparing in
a variety of ways.,
"I made the mistake of one
year overlooking a team and did
not give them the respect they
deserved and it cost my team,"
Paez said. "Now when we play
games, we focus in on that team


and allowed us to go a far as we Staff Writer Naji Tobias can be
went." reached at ntoblas@newszap.com.,


and that team only. If we need to
slow down our batting or work
on a different defense for that par-
ticular team, then that is what we
do."
Also contributing to the suc-
cess of the program is that Glades
Day has a strong junior varsity
team, allowing the athletes to
train for the sport before playing
on the varsity level. '
As opposed to the Paho-
kee and Glades Central softball
teams, whose players generally
don't have the luxury to play the
sport year-round, Glades Day
has that ability. Helping mat-
ters is that some of Glades Day's
players are from Wellington and
Loxahatchee, two areas that are
known for having a city league
softball program throughout the
year.
"Out of our 13 players on var-
sity, seven of them play travel or
summer ball," Paez said. "Since
most cities have some type of city
league softball program, I can't
really say that any of my players
have never picked up a softball."
Playing with much bigger
schools helped out in Glades
Day's run to the state tourna-
ment. The Gators played a total of
14 regular-season games against
teams with a higher classification,
including Clewiston, Royal Palm
Beach and Okeechobee - the Ga-
tors defeated all three teams in
their contests this year.
"As a coaching staff, we al-
ways look for ways to challenge
the players," Paez said. "The best
way to do this is to go out and find
the best competition out there."
It has worked marvelously for
Glades Day, posting an 8-0 record
in district play during the regular
season. Also, after losing to Amer-
ican Heritage-Delray Beach in the
district championship, the Gators
avenged the loss with a 10-0 w in
in the regional semifinals.
In the end, the girls showed
that they were deserving of reach-
ing their goal this year.
"I think all our coaches pre-
pared us as well as they could
for the state game," sad Amber
Martyn, a senior. "We played big-
ger schools and practiced longer
that anyone else. With those two
things, it helped is jell as a team

New Fundraiser
PTO has a new fundraiser,
Recycle for Education! You have
received flyers in your mailboxes
today to send home. Please en-
courage your students to collect
phones and empty inkjet and
toner cartridges. A collection
box has been placed in the front
office. Unfortunately we have
started this fundraiser a bit late in
the school year, but hope to get
this really going next school year
and plan to have a contest for the
class that collects the most.
This is a easy fund raising


program (like Boxtops). It's easy
because there is absolutely no in-
vestment. To raise funds through
this program we just collect empty
printer Inkjet and Toner cartridges
and used cell phones. They pay
us cash for all listed cartridges
and cell phones we collect. They
have sent us collection boxes and
shipping supplies free. So there
are no costs. They accept most
printer ink and toner cartridges,
Laser fax cartridges and desktop
copier cartridges including the
Canon PC line of copiers. You can
look up exactly which are accept-
ed on the web site: http://www.
recycle4charity.com.
Every year over 400 million cell
phones, inkjet and toner cartridg-
es are thrown away, lets recycle
and earn money for Westside.

Surgery
Continued From Page 1
Dr. Pierre-Louis called Glades
General Hospital to tell the doc-
tors about the boy's serious con-
dition.
"I kept the boy here at the
health center and made sure that
the hospital was informed that the
boy was coming with a ruptured
appendix," Dr. Pierre-Louis said.
Within an hour from that fate-
ful call, B'ythablia was transported
to the emergency room at Glades
General Hospital.
Successful surgery
Upon entering the emergency
room, Mr. Cherisme was terrified
of the possible outcome of his
grandson's surgery. Dr. Daniel


B. Bairys, M.D., performed the
procedure and it was confirmed
- yet in more specific terms - that
the biy suffered from acute per-
forated appendictis, a tear in the
appendix.
Nevertheless, the surgery
proved to be successful as
B'ythablia was later released from
the hospital.
"I thought that my grandson
died in my hands because he
fainted," Mr. Cherisme said in a
relieved tone. "But God and the
doctors gave me my child back."
Sandi Rodriguez, a represen-
tive of the community health cen-
ter, was especially inspired by the
boy's recovery.
"I thought it was incredible
that even though we're here for
the day-to-day sickness, we were
able to help save the boy's life,"
Ms. Rodriguez said. "Dr. Pierre


INI/Naji Tobias
Dr. Yves Louis-Pierre, at right, made a fateful call to Glades
General Hospital a few months, which helped save the life
of 16-year-old B'ytabila Cherisme, sitting at center. Dominiqa
Cherisme, at left, was relieved when he found out about his
grandson's successful appendix surgery, which took place
on November 27, 2007.


had taken upon himself to be a
voice in the Haitian community
because there's such a massive
need. It reaffirms what we do
here and that's to provide services
to the underinsured and the uni-
nusured."
Opened in Pahokee since July
30, 2007, the health center has
served over 4,000. clients for a
variety of services. It seems that
promoting the center through
word of mouth could be a pow-
erful and effective strategy, as Dr.
Louis-Pierre could attest.
"The boy's alive and well," Dr.
Pierre-Louis said. "I feel it was
part of my job to do this and I
don't feel that I'm any special for
doing this."
"I'm just grateful to my Lord
who spoke to me to go to the
boy's church and get the word
out," Dr. Pierre-Louis continued.


"I feel great about working for
the company, who gives me the
opportunity to seve the people in
need that can't otherwise afford
medical care."
B'ythabila intended on join-
ing the high school's soccer team
this past season, its first year of
existence. Now, with his health
intact, he could play his favorite
sport next season if he desires to
do so.
"I had no insurance and the
hospital was able to help me
pay my medical bills," B'ythablia
said through a translator. "I re-
ally thank my grandparents for
taking me to Dr. Pierre. Thanks
to Dr. Pierre-Louis and Dr. Bairys
for saving my life. Now, I'm doing
well and back in school."

Crash
Continued From Page 1

7:10, when fire rescue workers
were dispatched to the scene.
Less than 15 minutes later, the
fire rescue arrived to the area,
pronouncing the driver dead at
the scene of the crash. A passen-
ger, 24-year-old Gabriel G. Horta
from Pahokee, was listed in seri-
ous condition and transported to
Glades General Hospital for ob-
servation.
"Right now, we don't know
whether if the woman fell asleep
or veered off to the side of the road


because of any distractions on it,"
said Tim Frith, a lieutenant of the
highway patrol. "That's unde-
termined at this point. We won't
have a conclusion until the traffic
homicide report is finished."
The driver was wearing a seat-
belt prior to the fatal accident,
which was ruled as non-alcohol
related.
The highway patrol said that
the investigation is ongoing at this
time, but said that the case-should
be completed within 60 days,
pending toxicology results and a
statement from the passenger of
the sport-utility vehicle.

Fire

the house is still standing," said
Craig Prusansky, captain of the
fire rescue's emergency medical
services unit. "But due to the fire,
the house is uninhabitable."
It was revealed that the cause
of the fire was a clothes iron be-
ing left on the 15-year-old boy's
bed.
"The boy left the iron on the
bed and didn't unplug it," said,
Gary Burroughs, the fire rescue's
chief of Batallion District Seven.
"He forgot to unplug it when he


left the house. There were rem-
nants of the bed covering on the
iron and it was still plugged in
when investigators found it."
Fortunately for Ms. Starks, her
5-year-old daughter and her 15-
year-old son, no one was home
at the time of the blaze.
Officials said that the Red Cross
provided emergency assistance to
the family as they were placed in
a nearby hotel.
The Palm Beach County Fire
Rescue Investigation Bureau is
currently conducting an complete
investigation of the incident.
Staff Writer Nail Tobias can be

Holocaust Survivors
Norman Frajman, a Holocaust survivor from World War II, recently made an appearance
at Pahokee High School to tell students the importance of keeping peace in their lives

to document what he had to wear at the Warsaw Ghetto concentration camp in Germany
during the war. Standing by him at the April 17 event are Zelda Fuksman, a fellow survivor,
Catherine Martinez, a teacher at the high school, Maureen Marullo, a holocaust studies
representative from the School District of Palm Beach County and Peter Feigl, another
Holocaust survivor.
