brings opportunity," said Shan-
non LaRoche, Palm Beach
County's assistant county ad-
ministrator.
It was the overriding theme
during a special meeting held
July 18 at the Belle Glade City


tative Priscilla Taylor (D West
Palm Beach), was attended by
approximately 200 people-- well
over the maximum occupancy
of 130 seats available at the
chambers.
Speakers said the Glades area
is at a crossroads in its history,
with the recent plans for U.S..
Sugar to close its doors and the
possibility of an inland port.
Those were the two primary
topics of discussion on the table


Dreams of an inland
port

Currently, there are a few lo-
cations that are considered for
the proposed inland port.
They include two possible'
sites on U.S. Highway 27, south
of South Bay, an open area just

John Boy packed
with concerned
residents
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
.INI Florida
CLEWISTON -- Residents
at a meeting at the John Boy
Auditorium on Monday voiced
their concerns once more re-
garding the sale of U S. Sugar
-to the state, and what the end
result will mean to the local
economy.
Much has been made of the
buyout to improve the flowway
to the Everglades, but very few
details remain regarding, what
the town will look like 10, 15
and 20 years into the future.
With the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District's $1.75
billion buyout of 187,000 acres
of U.S. Sugar larid, as many
as 120,000 acres of that land
may come out of production.
The deal is one of the largest
land purchases of a state in re-
cent memory and is centered
around the goal of protecting
the Everglades.
Locals want assurance that
their communities won't be
forgotten in the search for that
goal.
"If not, in the opinion of
many, this area will experience
such economic depression
not seen here since the Great
Depression of the '30s," said
Butch Jones, Glades County
Commissioner, "unless other
economic engines of the mag-
nitude of U.S. Sugar are located


here and soon."
The sense of haste Was evi-
dent in the tone of several of
the speakers who addressed
the representatives. During
'public comments, County
Commissioner Kevin McCa-
rthy conveyed his anxiety that,
20 days into a 75-day contract
window between the state nd
U.S. Sugar, the county has yet to
meet with the Office of Tourism
Trade and Economic Develop-
ment (OTED) to discuss what
comes next.
"I'm concerned about the
timeline," said Mr. McCarthy.
"If we take three months to
do an economic impact study,
or to come up with a plan; the
deal is already signed and we
don't know what we're doing.
This is not a normal or ordinary
process. This is a much bigger
process."
OTED, through its chief ana-
lyst, Mary Helen Blakeslee, have
pledged to offer their assistance
in studying. the impact of the
sale, and the follow-up plan
for economic stability. Much
of their work up to this point,
however, has been focused on
data gathering.
Once again, citizens and'
leaders remained Wary that a
project with such tremendous
impact to the area was kept se-
cret by all those involved in the
talks, and how very few people
-- including some of the highest
ranking political officers in the
state -- knew anything about
the sale prior to its announce!

Looks like it's time to make lemonade


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Those that think life is always
fair often wind up sorely disap-
pointed.
Life is not fair.
If we can accept that prem-
ise, then we can count the times
when things go well as the bless-
ings they are, and not feel short-
changed when things don't go
well.
Trouble is the norm and not
the exception.
Someone once said that life is
20 percent of what happens and
80 percent how we react to what
happens.
In other words, when (not if)
life gives us lemons, let us make
lemonade.
There's a story about a chef
who had an assistant who com-
plained constantly about things
not going well.
He was tired of the fighting and
struggling and endless, problems.
He didn't know how he was


going to make it and wanted to
give up.
The chef, not saying a word,
filled three pots with water and
placed them on the stove.
In the first he placed carrots, in
the second, eggs, and in the last
he placed ground coffee beans.
Turning the heat on high, the
chef stood quietly and watched
them boil.
In about twenty minutes he
turned off the burners.
The assistant just watched,
wondering what was happening.
The carrots were fished out
and placed in a bowl. The eggs
were then pulled out and placed
in a bowl. Lastly, the coffee was
ladled out-and placed in a bowl.
Turning to his assistant, the
chef asked, "What do you see?"
"Carrots, eggs, and coffee,"
the assistant replied. The chef
brought him closer and asked
him to feel the carrots.- The assis-
tant noted that they were soft.
The chef then asked the assis-


tant to take an egg and break it.
After pulling off the shell, he ob-
served the hard-boiled egg.
Finally, the chef asked the as-
sistant to sip the coffee. As the
assistant tasted its rich aroma, he
asked, "What does it mean?"
The chef explained that each
item had faced the same adver-
sity: boiling water.
Each one, however, had react-
ed differently to it.
The carrot went in strong, hard,
and unrelenting. But after being
subjected to the boiling water, it
softened and became weak.
The egg had been fragile. Its
thin outer shell had protected its
liquid interior. But after sitting
through the boiling water, its in-
side became hardened.
The ground coffee beans were
unique, however. After they were
in the .boiling water, they had
changed the water instead of the
water changing them. The flavor
of the bean had permeated the
water and produced coffee.


In our life, we are going to face
adversity. How we choose to re-
spond to it can be the difference
that will make or break us.
There are some who, like the
carrot, seem hard, but with pain
and adversity they wilt and be-
come soft and lose their strength.
There are some like the egg.
They start off with a malleable
heart and a fluid spirit, but some-
thing happens: A death, a break-
up, a divorce, a layoff, or some-
thing in their life leaves them
hardened and stiff. Their outer
shell looks the same, but on the
inside their hearts are hardened.
And then there are some like
the coffee bean. The bean chang-
es the hot water. As the water gets
hotter, the flavor gets better and
the pleasant coffee aroma arises.
When things are at their hot-
test, coffee bean people change
the environment around them for
the better.
We can't avoid the hot waters
of adversity in life, but with God's

Florida attracts anglers like chum attracts fish


By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
With great natural resources
and the efforts of the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) and responsible
anglers, Florida is home to some
of the highest quality, most di-
verse fishing in the world. The
results are like a well-chummed
fishing hole, attracting anglers
who vote for their favorite fisher-
ies with their best cast and hard-
earned cash. It has also earned
Florida the title of "Fishing Capital
of the World."
The latest national statistics
showed Florida has 2.8 million
resident anglers, while annually
attracting 885,000 tourists who
fish here. As a result, Florida's
economy benefits by a whop-
ping billion dollars in direct sales.
And even though Texas has more
inland water area (5,056 square
miles vs. 4,672 for Florida) and
people (22.9 million vs. 17.7 mil-


lion from the 2006 Census data),
Florida has more resident anglers
and more than four times as
many tourist anglers (885,000)
than Texas (218,000).
With summer vacations in full
swing (or cast, as the case may
be), and gas prices restricting
travel, we will likely see more an-
glers from neighboring states and
those along the 1-10 and 1-95 cor-
ridors coming to wet a line in our
prolific waters. Moreover, more
Floridians are likely to stay within
the state borders to conserve fuel
and avoid nonresident fishing li-
cense fees. A resident freshwater
or saltwater license only costs $17
and is valid for 365 days from date
of purchase. Since the average
number of fishing trips per an-
gler in 2006 was 17.2 days, with
many fishing trips lasting four or
more hours, fishing remains an
exceptional recreational value,
even without catching dinner and
bringing it home.
Florida earned the title "Fish-


ing Capital of the World" by cou-
pling its great resources with re-
sponsible management 'of those
resources by the FWC. Anglers
will be coming in abundance to
test their skills, and we hope to
get them to try out some new
fishing opportunities. By target-
ing a wide variety of species and
spreading anglers out across the
state rather than over-fishing his-
torically publicized locations, we
can lessen the strain on any spe-
cific fishery and help promote
sustainable use.
You can help keep Florida
the fishing capital by following
sound conservation practices and
encouraging others to do so as
well. It takes only a small effort to
make a big difference, by follow-
ing a few key standards:
Promote, through personal ex-
ample, ethical behavior in the use
of aquatic resources.
Value and respect the aquatic
environment and all living things.
* Avoid spilling and never dump


pollutants, such as gas or oil.
Keep fishing sites litter-free. Dis-
pose of trash, including worn
lines, leaders and hooks, in ap-
propriate containers, and recycle
when possible. Purchase and
keep current your fishing license.
If you are exempt, you may still
purchase a license as an easy way
to contribute directly to conserva-
tion.
Take precautionary measures
to prevent spread of exotic plants
and animals. Learn and obey
angling and boating regulations.
Treat other anglers, boaters and
property owners with courtesy
and respect, and never trespass
on private lands or waters.
Keep no more fish than need-
ed for consumption, and never
wastefully discard fish. Carefully
handle and release alive all fish
that are unwanted or prohibited
by regulation.
Use tackle and techniques
that minimize harm to fish when
"catch-and-release" angling.

It is time to organize your
schedule so that you can take
the time off during Thanksgiving
.week to attend the Big "0" Hike
"around Lake Okeechobee. The
Hike will begin in Pahokee on
.November 22, and end at Paho-
kee on November 30.
That's nine days of walking
from 9 to 14 miles a day to make
it all the way around the lake.
There is a little bit of a challenge
to this walk.
Hundreds of people have tried
over the years and (for some rea-
son) only about 20 to 30 percent
of the walkers manage to finish
the 9 days'.
So plan now and get in shape
for November.

Consumers should combat identity theft


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is urging consumers to take
advantage of their free annual
credit reports to deter identity
|heft.
h It has been three years since
the amendment to the Fair Credit
Reporting Act provided Florida
consumers with access to their
credit report from each of the
three major credit reporting
companies for free once a year.
A credit report contains informa-
tion about a consumer's, credit
history, including a listing of all
credit cards and loans. A recent
report from the FBI and National
White Collar Crime Center indi-
cates Florida is home to 10 per-
cent of Internet fraud perpetrators
in the United States, second only
to California. In addition, illegal
activity, Medicare fraud, occupa-
tional fraud and money launder-
ing account for about $94 billion
of Florida's $714 billion Gross
Domestic Product according to
Enterprise Florida.
Mr. Bronson is concerned that
the weak economy and rising un-
employment rate may result in
an increase in identity theft and
unauthorized use of consumers'
credit cards.
"Reviewing credit history is
one of the most important steps
people can take to protect them
from identity theft or to quickly
discover and halt any unauthor-
ized activity on their credit," Com-
missioner Bronson said. "Their
credit reports may be the first hint

Identity theft can damage a
consumer's credit, and a poor
credit history can result in rejec-

rates on a loan. Mr. Bronson says
that is why it is so important for
consumers to educate themselves
about this crime and know what
to do if it happens to them.

Restoration, recreation at new Everglades public area


New areas open up
precious lands to
recreation
WEST PALM BEACH-A new
haven for outdoor- enthusiasts
opened on Wednesday, July 16,
amid an expanse of wetlands
constructed by the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
WMD) to clean water for the Ev-
erglades.
"South Florida residents and
visitors alike have yet another
public oasis to escape the. every-
day hustle," said SFWMD Govern-
ing Board Vice Chair Shannon
Estenoz.
"Opening this land for recre-
ation enables the people of Flori-
da and beyond to further enjoy the
national treasure we are working
so hard to rehabilitate."


Located in central Palm Beach
County, Stormwater Treatment
Area (STA) 1 West features a new
parking area leading to a 200-foot
viewing platform and gazebos
overlooking the watery expanse.
The three-mile trail along a
section of the levee surrounding
the 6,670-acre STA offers hikers,
bicyclists, photographers and bird
watchers vast views of nature and
wildlife such as great blue herons
and mottled ducks.
Fishing is allowed in the outer
canal but not within the treat-
ment area.
In keeping with an environ-
mentally friendly mission, the
land also boasts a restroom with
a composting toilet.
The expanse is the third storm-
water treatment area managed
by the District to open for recre-
ation.


The 6,562-acre Stormwater
Treatment Area 1 East, just across
the massive Water Conservation
Area 1, opened in May for similar
outdoor activities.
Future plans call for a 10-mile
levee walking trail connecting
STA 1 East and STA 1 West.
While recreation has become
a staple on these public lands, the
key purpose of stormwater treat-
ment areas is to improve the qual-
ity of water runoff before it flows
to the Everglades.
The STAs are immense con-
structed wetlands full of aquatic
plants.
Those plants soak up phos-
phorus, a nutrient that helps
vegetation grow but one that can
harm the Everglades ecosystem.
Along with better farming
practices, South Florida's 52,000
acres of STAs have prevented


more than 2,600 metric tons of
phosphorus from entering the
Everglades, reducing phosphorus
loads by 70 percent since 1994.
The STAs have also attracted


many native animal and bird spe-
cies.
The new STA 1 West recre-
ation area is open from dawn un-
til dusk, Friday through Monday.

recreational opportunities onr

Tips for maintaining
comfort with creative
planting
By Angela Sachson
UF/IFAS Extension Serice
According to UF Consumer
Horticultural Specialist Dr. Bob
Black, the arrangement of plants
in the landscape can make a dif-
ference in maintaining comfort
inside your home.
Plants can channel winds next
to your home, in a way which can
reduce energy needs both in sum-
mer and winter.
Here in South Florida during
the "dog days" of July and Au-
gust, winds usually come from a
southeasterly direction.
Many Floridians find it impos-
sible to stay cool without air-con-
ditioning, regardless of the cost.
If air conditioning is used, wind
movement around the home dur-
ing the summer can raise energy
costs.
This occurs when hot, humid
outside air is directed around win-
dows, doors, and through cracks.
For AC using homes, keeping
these winds away is the land-
scape goal.
Shrubs and trees should be
planted around an air-conditioned
home so that they make walls of
foliage that direct the prevailing
southern breezes away from the
house.
A multi-layered summer wind-
break can be used along the
southern exposures.
The tallest line of plants should
be the closest to the house.
Along and close to the walls
that face the direction of summer
winds, a foundation planting of
shrubs can create a dead air space
that will reduce warm winds.
Deciduous shrubs or open-
branched species should be used
on the south side to allow the sun
to heat those exposures in win-
ter.
In the case of all landscaping
around a home, consider planting
to reduce wildfires as well, espe-
cially if your home is located in
heavily wooded areas.
And, be aware that dead air
spaces can contribute to some
pest problems.
Plant leaves that do not dry out
may be subject to higher insect
and disease problems.
Shade trees positioned be-
tween windows and prevailing
summer winds should be low-
branching to provide maximum
protection against air movement.
Additional tall shrubs can be

placed nearby but on the wind-
ward side of east and west win-
dows.
I In addition, the Florida Yards
and Neighborhoods program sug-
gests these planting tips: When
planting trees plant deciduous
trees on the west, south and east
sides of the house to cast shade in
summer and let in warming light
in winter.
Tree shade can reduce air con-
ditioning costs by as much as 50%
in summer.
Shading the air conditioner
compressor allows it to use less
energy too but be careful not to
block the unit's airflow so the
warm air can escape...
For colder weather, a fence or
a row of evergreens on the north


side of the house forms a barrier
against cold winter winds.
We can suggest specific plants
that do well locally that will re-
duce energy costs if planted in the
right place.

Plants Can Reduce Energy Costs,

Third 'Farm To Fuel' summit


TALLAHASSEE As oil and
gas prices continue to hit record
highs, Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commission-
er Charles H. Bronson is forging
ahead with his efforts to promote
the production of renewable en-
ergy in Florida, including ethanol
made from agriculture waste and
other woody products.
Agriculture Commissioner
Bronson is kicking off the 2008
"Farm to Fuel" Summit on
Wednesday, July 30, to bring to-
gether hundreds of industry lead-
ers in agriculture, petroleum,
academia, financial institutions
and the government who want to
make Florida a leader in the pro-
duction of renewable energy.


Highlights of the Summit in-
clude a keynote speech from U.S.
Secretary of Agriculture Ed Scha-
fer, a special appearance by NFL
Hall of Fame inductee Jack Young-
blood, a workshop on bioenergy
feedstocks in Florida, presenta-
tions from each of the 2008 Farm
to Fuel Grant Program recipients,
and more.
"With each increase in the na-
tion's oil and gas prices, the need
for alternative sources of fuel and
energy become more critical,"
Commissioner Bronson said.
"Florida has the greatest po-
tential for biomass production in
the country, and the technology
exists to convert natural resources
to produce clean, alternative fuel.


This conference will bring to-
gether all the stakeholders so we
can continue working toward, the
goal of reducing our. dependence
-on foreign oil while at the same
time providing another source of
income for our struggling farm-
ers."
Participants will hear about
where Florida currently stands
with biofuels infrastructure, the
latest renewable energy technolo-
gies and the growing market for
carbon credits.
"I think by bringing together
the best minds from the various
industries that can make that hap-
pen, Florida can be a model for
other states to follow," Bronson
said.


This year's Summit is also "go-
ing green" by being held at the
Rosen Shingle Creek which in
2007 was designated as a Florida
Green Lodge.
In addition, greenhouse gas
(GHG) emissions associated with
the summit will be offset by re-
newable energy certificates re-
tired by Sterling Planet, Inc.
The 2008 Farm to Fuel Summit
will begin.with an evening recep-
tion on Wednesday, July 30, and
conclude at noon on Friday, Aug.
1:
The media is welcome to at-
tend.

PSC approves solar projects' recovery


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida.
Public Service Commission (PSC)
has approved Florida Power &
Light Company's (FPL) request
for three new solar projects to be
eligible for environmental cost re-
covery, continuing Florida's effort
to promote the use of cleaner, re-
newable sources of energy.
The three solar projects are
expected to generate up to 110
megawatts of emissions-free
electricity. PSC approval of the
eligibility of FPL's projects for
cost recovery is consistent with


recent legislation allowing utili-
ties to recover renewable energy
project costs, up to a total of 110
megawatts state-wide, through
the Environmental Cost Recov-
ery Clause. FPL is the first utility
to request cost recovery eligibil-
ity under the' new Florida statute.
Before any customer charges are
approved, the Commission will
review the prudence of FPL's so-
lar project costs in a separate pro-
ceeding.
PSC Chairman Matthew M.
Carter II said, "The PSC is re-


spending to leadership provided
by our Governor and our Legis-
lature who are making Florida a
national leader in reducing man-
made greenhouse gases by en-
couraging electric utilities to pro-
duce power from'sources such as
solar and wind."
FPL's proposed solar projects
include: The Martin Next Genera-
tion Solar Energy Center--Planned
for construction to begin by year-
end 2008 at FPL's existing Martin
site, the Martin project will pro-
vide up to 75 megawatts of solar


thermal capacity as an alternative
to existing, natural gas combined-
cycle capacity.
The DeSoto Next Generation
Solar Energy Center--Planned for
construction to begin by year-end
2008 on FPL-owned property in
DeSoto County, the DeSoto proj-.
ect will provide,25 megawatts of
new photovoltaic solar capacity.
The Space Coast Next Genera-
tion Solar Energy Center--Planned
for construction to begin by year-
end 2008 at the Kennedy Space
Center.

The power of the right




click functionality


Right click provides

shortcuts to powerful

features

By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
The computer tip I'm going to discuss to-
day is so deceptively simple yet powerful that
it's a pleasant little surprise every time you do
it.
I'm talking about the right click. The right
click is the gateway to all kinds of program
capabilities.
The right click is also intelligent; that is it
enables you to do different things in different
programs.
The little menu that appears when you
right click is also called the "right-click menu"
or "context menu."

On your desktop
The desktop on your computer is the first
place you can try this.
A right click of your mouse on an empty
spot on your desktop gives you access to sev-
eral things.
You can arrange the icons on your desk-
top. I guess the most useful is to drag your
mouse down to properties which gives you all
kinds of choices related to the design of your
workspace.
For example, you can change the colors
you look at and you can browse your files for
a new desktop image.
If you right click on an icon on your desk-
top, it gives you several different choices.
If it's an application, you can open it, or
rename it, or delete it.

In a program
The right click has been used extensively
by software engineers to help us navigate
through popular software.
When I write in Microsoft Word, I depend
on the way it knows when I have misspelled
a word.
If you have your preferences set up prop-
erly, the Word program will underline the mis-
spelled word as you are typing.
Then you just right click on the red under-
lined word and the menu will come up with
suggestions of possible words from which to
choose.

You drag down and highlight the correctly
spelled word and Word replaces it in your
text.
To set this feature up, in Word, go to the
Tools Menu, select Options, select the Spelling
and Grammar tab, and finally check the box
choices for "check spelling as you type" and
"suggest corrections."

In your web browser
You can right click on any image on your
screen and save or copy that image to your
hard drive.
If you want to borrow text from a web
page, you can select or highlight the text and
right click to copy it.
In your word processing application, just
right click to paste that text into your docu-
ment.
These are just a couple examples of the
power of the right click.
It is an adventure to work with the different
programs and find out what surprises the right
click holds for convenience and productivity.


TALLAHASSEE The Florida Secretary of
State Kurt Browning has released four public
service announcements to explain Florida's
optical scan systems, the importance of up-
dating voter registration information, closed
primaries and voting in general.
These announcements are available in Eng-
lish and Spanish as well as digital formats.
The Department is distributing the public
service announcements through the cable
and public broadcasting channels as well as
government, educational, hospital, internet
and other channels or venues.
The PSAs have also been distributed to all
of the local supervisors of elections for use
on their websites or local media and can be
viewed on the Florida Department of State
channel on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.
com/FloridaDeptOfState.
In addition, the Division of Elections web-
site Elections.myflorida.com has been
redesigned to make finding information on
Florida elections easier for all of its users. A
Media Room Page Elections.myflorida.com/
media has been added to put the most fre-
quently accessed information by members of
the news media in one area.
"With Election Day just around the corner,
Floridians should get their registration forms
to their supervisor or if already registered,
make sure their information is up-to-date,"


TALLAHASSEE With at least seven key
House races playing out across the Sunshine
State, Florida has emerged as the top battle
ground for House races in the 2008 election
cycle.
Democrats in key congressional races have
announced that their campaigns have raised
more money than Republican incumbents.
Combined with the fact that new voter reg-
istration numbers show an overwhelmingly
large swing towards the Democratic party,
these figures prove that Democratic momen-
tum is sweeping the state heading into the
height of campaign season.
With at least seven key campaigns, Flori-
da has emerged as the top battle ground for
House races.
And now, many of our Democratic chal-
lengers have once again out-raised their Re-
publican opponents.
It's not rocket science it simply proves
that Floridians are fed up with the Republi-
can party and will do what it takes to bring
change, by electing Democrats in November.
Miami Republican incumbents fared par-
ticularly poorly, being out raised by all three
Democratic challengers.
Former Hialeah Mayor Raul Martinez raised
more than $600,000, compared to Lincoln
Diaz-Balart's $481,558. Annette Taddeo raised
$321,000, as opposed to Ileana Ros-Lehtin-


said Secretary Browning.
"The Department of State and all of Flori-
da's counties are working hard to make sure
that everyone who wants to vote will be able
to cast their ballot on Election Day."

en's $300,929, and Joe Garcia raised $513,049
against Mario Diaz-Balart's $392,103.
Even in the critical 1-4 Quarter of Central
Florida, Republicans are showing signs of
weakness.
Last week, it was reported that Suzanne
Kosmas out raised Tom Feeney for the third
quarter in a row and has $140,000 more cash
on hand than Feeney.
Now we learn that Feeney was forced
to spend $45,000 on legal bills last quarter
because of his ties to convicted felon Jack
Abramoff.
Adam Putnam, a top member of the Re-
publican leadership, admitted that his fellow
House Republican Ric Keller is vulnerable,
and the numbers agree: Keller was out-raised
by the combined total of his opponents by
nearly $70,000.
"We have out-registered Republicans by
more than 100,000 new voters since January,"
said Mr. Jotkoff, "And our phones have been
ringing off the hook with people wanting to
volunteer.
"Floridians are enthusiastic about the
change that the November elections are go-
ing to bring."

Terriers making steady progress this summer


Moore Haven football
program shines at
FCA/VSA camp

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN Seven-on
seven tournaments. Lineman
competitions. Weightlifting ses-
sions.
Those are all football-related
activities that most teams, includ-
ing Moore Haven, have participat-
ed in during the summer.
As the offseason gets ready
to wind down, the Moore Haven
Terriers football program seems
proud of what it's accomplished
thus far.
From July 10-13, the Terriers,
coached by Jason Bond, attended
the annual Fellowship of Chris-
tian Athletes (FCA)/Victory Sports
Agency (VCA) summer football


camp, held at Webber Interna-
tional University in Babson Park.
According to Bond, there were
eight teams, including Moore
Haven (Class IA), that attended,
with approximately 200 campers
who participated in the four-day,
three-night event.
The other football teams there
were Frostproof (Class 2B), Mul-
berry (Class 2A), -Immokalee
(Class 3A), Kathleen (Class 3A),
Sebring (Class 3A), East Lee
(Class 4A) and Varela (Class 6A).
It must be noted that of all the
eight schools in the camp, Moore
Haven was the smallest, based on
classification by the Florida High
School Athletic Association (FH-
SAA).
Though Moore Haven was
the smallest team there, in terms
of classification, it did not come
up the smallest, as attested by
its 5-2-1 record in the seven-on-
seven competitions throughout
the camp.


Moore Haven did not compete
against Frostproof (last year's
Class 2B state semifinalist), but
held its own against every other
team in the field.
In three of its eight games, the
Terriers matched up well against
Kathleen, who won their fifth
consecutive Class 3A-District 2
championship last year. Moore
Haven won twice, while tying
Kathleen in the other contest.
Moore Haven also defeated
Sebring, East Lee and Varela, who
are all considered big schools,
according to the state's classifica-
tion system.
But their two losses came
against Mulberry and Immoka-
lee, both of which are perennial
playoff teams.
Interestingly, scores were not
recorded but wins and losses
were judged on primarily which
team in each contest scored the
most touchdowns.
"It was kind of an informal


deal as far as us keeping score
and having a tournament," Bond
said. "But we were able to rotate
and play as many teams as we
could.
"The emphasis wasn't so
much on the scoreboard," Bond
continued. "It was about each
team getting better in their routes
and learning how to work togeth-
er."
Also, the Terrier linemen,
coached by Tim Jones, had a
stellar showing at the four-day
camp.
i In a competition called 'Escape
from Baghdad,' of the eight teams
there, Moore Haven finished as
one of the top four teams, reach-
ing the semifinal round of the
tournament.
'Escape from Baghdad', as
explained by Bond, is generally a
two-on-two lineman competition
which focuses on pass protec-
tion.
In this tournament, the 'down'


linemen (defensive ends) had to
make an attempt to get to the
opposing running back in a pass
rushing situation.
Of the 15 players that attended
the camp, at least four of them
participated in the lineman tour-
nament. The rest participated in
the seven-on-seven competition.
The team members who went
to Webber International, in al-
phabetical order, were: Jermaine
Augustine, Thomas Barfield,
Elazarus Blackmon, Dalton and
Marshall Britt, Xavier Fagan, Arliss
Ford, Tikeen Guyton, Fred Hall,
Lascelle Humphrey, Vinton Lewis,
Aaron Lopez, Errol Mundle, Josh
Patterson and Keonte White.
"I was really happy that our
players competed hard, even
though we were the smallest
school there," Bond said.
"I was particular pleased with
how they competed against big-
ger schools like Immokalee and
Kathleen."


Now that the summer camp
has concluded, the Terriers are
gearing up for a series of weighlif-
ing and agility tests, which will
take place from July 30 to August
1.
The three-day testing, which
will convene next week, will f4-
cus on such drills as the 40-yard
dash, 20-yard backpedal, vertical
jump, bench press, military press,
squat, power clean and the 400
meter dash.
All of these tests will serve as
an indicator for Bond how far the
players have progressed in their
strength and conditioning over
the summer and the past year.
The testing will take 'plac
during regular weightlfing hours,
which begin at 6 p.m. in thq
Moore Haven Junior-Senior High
School's weight room facility. .

Glades Central QB faces



serious gun charge


Player's status with
team is not certain at
this time

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
GLADES Kentavious McCoy,
a Glades Central football player,
is facing a gun charge that could
end his football career.
The upcoming senior quar-
terback, who led the Raiders in
passing with 1,296 yards with 19
touchdowns and nine intercep-
tions last season, was arrested
July 10 on one count of carrying
a concealed firearm.
The charge is classified as a
third degree felony, according to
Florida State Statutes.
The unfolding case
According to a probable cause
affidavit provided by the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO), deputies responded to
a complaint by an unidentified
woman as they were on patrol at
the corner of Palm Beach Road
and Northwest 10th Street in
South Bay.
When the woman spoke with
investigators, she reportedly told
them that she seemed scared and
concerned, adding that there was
a white Mercury Grand Marquis
parked in an open lot at the north-
east corner of the aforementioned
intersection.
The witness said that the ve-
hicle was occupied by four men,
with guns in the vehicle, accord-
ing to the arrest report.
The incident had reportedly
occurred at approximately 12:14
a.m.
It must be noted that the same
witness previously approached
detectives regarding the vehicle
in question at the lot, the affidavit
stated.


The'witness reportedly went
on to tell deputies that at night,
the men would allegedly 'shoot
guns in the air.'
After discovering the vehicle,
detectives contacted the driver,
who was later identified as the
Glades Central quarterback.
The arrest report said that the
suspect immediately opened the
door and tried to exit the vehicle,
seeming very nervous.
The suspect was observed by
investigators holding a black sock
in his right hand.
As deputies reportedly ordered
the suspect back in the vehicle,
he threw the sock on the floor
board of the vehicle. The sock, in
plain view, was observed with as-
sorted .22 and .38 cal live rounds
spilled out of it, according to the
arrest report.
The other three men with the
standout quarterback were iden-
tified by investigators as Terry
Lampkin Jr., Robert Smith Jr. and
Lee King Jr., all reportedly de-
scribed as locals by the sheriff's
office.
In addition, all were reportedly
observed by deputies at a July 5
gun show, looking at guns and
ammunition.
Recently, investigators looked
at Lampkin Jr.'s MySpace, a pop-
ular social website with personal
information, finding that Lampkin
Jr. and Smith Jr. were in a video
rapping about guns and shooting,
according to the arrest report.
Based on the leads, detectives
reportedly found enough prob-
able cause to search the vehicle
and found three guns: a Taurus
.38 cal, a Ruger .22 cal and a Pa-
triot .45 cal.
All three guns were found un-
der the rear seat, with McCoy re-
portedly admitting ownership of
the .22 cal, King Jr. telling detec-
tives that he had the .38 cal and
Smith Jr. confessing to the owner-
ship of the .45 cal.


Lampkin Jr. told deputies that
he knew the guns were under the
rear seat where he was seated,
putting him in constructive pos-
session of the firearms, the arrest
report said.
All four were arrested and
booked into the county's jail. They
were later released on bond.

Future in limbo
The upcoming season, which
begins on August 29, could be a
very promising one for last year's
Muck Bowl MVP, who threw for
three touchdown passes in the
second half of a 34-24 loss to Pa-
hokee.
The standout quarterback,
who couldn't play in this year's
spring game against Miami Cen-
tral due to injuries, has been ex-
pected to compete with rising
junior-to-be L.J. Thomas for the
starting job.
But the opportunity to even
play for Glades Central rests with
Jessie Hester, the head coach.
According to Hester, there has
been no decision made yet on
the quarterback's status with the
team.
The Glades Central coach is
currently awaiting the outcome
from court proceedings.
McCoy's court date is sched-
uled for August 8 in the Belle
Glade courthouse.
If convicted of the charge, Mc-
Coy faces up to five years in pris-
on and a $5,000 fine.

Survey show how americans



use Federal Tax Stimulus


July 15, 2008 A survey of 3,004
persons across the United States
who receive financial counseling
from a national nonprofit agency
found that 29.4 percent used funds
from their tax stimulus check to
pay for everyday expenses, such
as food and gasoline, while 20
percent said they paid down their
credit card debt.
In addition, almost 5 percent
of those surveyed said they uti-
lized the funds to help them pre-
vent foreclosure of their home or
avoid bankruptcy. An additional
7.5 percent said the funds "give
some more time to organize their
finances and possibly avoid" these
two scenarios.
In response to the question,
"If you are facing foreclosure, will
this check help you avoid fore-
closure?" 3.5 percent responded
"yes." An additional 5.1 percent of
those surveyed, said the stimulus
payment "gives some more time
to organize finances and possibly
avoid foreclosure."
Approximately 1.4 percent sur-
veyed, said the funds would help
them avoid bankruptcy, while 2.4
percent said the funds will allow
them more time to organize their
finances and possibly avoid bank-
ruptcy.
The survey was conducted
in late June by Consumer Credit
Counseling Service (CCCS) of
'Palm Beach County and the Trea-
sure Coast, which is part of a fam-
,ily of nonprofit agencies that pro-
Vides credit counseling, as well as
,counseling to prevent foreclosure
-and avoid bankruptcy, to people
'in all 50 states. Of the 3,004 re-
.sponding to the survey, 2,147 had
'received their check from the fed-
eral government.
"Many Americans are using
the federal stimulus checks to
help them get by and pay for ev-
eryday expenses," said Jessica


Cecere, president of CCCS. "The
extra money is providing them
breathing room with their credi-
tors, including those who want to
avoid foreclosure and keep their
homes."
Approximately $106.7 billion in
stimulus payments will be made
this year to 130 million house-
holds. The payments began on
April 28 and are scheduled to be
completed by mid-July.
Rather than spend funds on
new purchases, the survey also
shows that some Americans
are using the stimulus checks to
make additional payments on
their mortgage, car or other loans,
and others are using the funds for
home repairs. For example:
7.8 percent said they would use
the funds to make an additional
payment on their mortgage;
9 percent said they would
make an additional payment on
another debt, such as a car pay-
ment or a student loan;
Approximately 5.6 percent of
respondents said the funds will be
used to make home repairs;
2.5 percent said they would use
the funds to pre-pay their property
or income taxes for'2008.
Other survey findings include:
Approximately 82 percent of
the people surveyed said they plan
to save 20 percent or less of the
tax stimulus funds they receive.
Asked to rate the state of their
current financial situation on a
scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the
"most stressful," about 33.6 per-
cent of respondents rated their
situation a "1."
When asked, "What is your
confidence level in the economy
six months from now," 66 percent
expect it to worsen and only 11
percent expect it to improve. The
remaining people surveyed ex-
pect the economy to remain the
same.

The mourner's bench, from God or Man?


By Jackie Miller
First Christian Church
Charles G. Finney, celebrated
evangelist of the early 19th cen-
tury and President 0 Oberlin Col-
lege, delivered a series of lectures
on evangelism in 1838 which, by
popular demand, was available to
the general public in book form.
Fleming H. Revell & Co. se-
cured publish rights. The book
was entitled "Revivals of Reli-
gion," and dated Oct. 22, 1868.


Evangelist Finney, probably
more than any other man, popu-
larized the mourner's hence (or
anxious seat, as he preferred to
call it) as he led the vanguard of
revivalist in the Great Religious
Awakening that swept Europe
and America a century ago.
On pages 254-256 of the 1868
edition, Mr. Finney wrote in de-
fense of the anxious seat.
The following quotation is tak-
en verbatim from page 254.


Speaking of an "awakened sin-
ner," Mr. Finney wrote: "If you say
to him, 'There is the anxious seat,
come out and avow your determi-
nation to be on the Lord's side.'
"If he is not willing to do so
small a thing as that, then he is
not willing to do anything, and
there he is, brought out before his
own conscience.
"It uncovers the delusion of
the human heart, and prevents a
great many spurious conversions,


by showing those who might
otherwise imagine themselves
willing to do anything for Christ,
that in fact they are willing to do
nothing.
"The church has always felt it
necessary to have something of
the kind to answer this very pur-
pose. In the days of the apostles
BAPTISM answered this purpose.
"The Gospel was preached
and those who were willing to be
on the side of Christ were called


on to be BAPTIZED.
"It (BAPTISM) held the precise
place that the anxious seat does
now, as a public manifestation of
their determination to be Chris-
tian."
Mr. Finney goes on to state that
there were those who opposed
the "anxious seat," but countered
by saying, "In modern times those
who have been violently opposed
to the anxious seat have been
obliged to adopt some substitute,


or they could not bet along in pro-
moting a revival."
Note, there is no appeal for
evangelists to return to the apos-
tolic practice of baptism, only a
defense of the premise that some
kind of SUBSTITUTE is necessary
"in modern times" to the promo-
tion of a revival. Jesus promised
that he would guide the apostles
to "ALL TRUTH" in John 17:20-21,
and Christian Unity can only be
found "through their word."


A reply on behalf of "That person"


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Dear Editor:
Of course, I couldn't help
wondering if "this person" and
"that person" mentioned in your
article by Jackie Miller, who iden-
tified himself as an "evangelist"
on page 4 of your July 10th edi-
tion was me!
He refused to name any one,
but his article seemed to refer to
some of the things I wrote in an
earlier article and still stand by as
valid.
He sets up some conditions
that seem irrelevant and superflu-
ous to the case that I made for the
baptism of infants.
Take for example the com-
ments made about "Lydia" in the
Book of Acts.
Jackie raises issues about
whether Lydia was married,
whether she had children, wheth-
er she had them with her since
she was in a foreign land on busi-
ness and whether these children
were old enough to believe.
None of these things are nec-
essary or even relevant to the
point I made; whether Lydia had
kids, was raising someone else's
kids, what she was doing away
from her native land was relevant
nor have any bearing on the fact
that her whole "household" was
baptized.
Maybe she had kids, maybe
not, maybe she was living with
in-laws who had kids we'll never
know, maybe she had others in
her household who had kids or
not- who knows.
The Bible simply states that
"she and all of the members of
+ her household .were baptized."
Nothing is mentioned, nor need-
ed to be mentioned about her
state of marriage.
There is no statement that
"only the adults were baptized"
or that "the kids were baptized,
too" or any of the other arbitrary
conditions set up that didn't mat-
ter.


Likewise, the Philippian Jailer;,
scriptures say that "He and his
whole family were bapized."
This passage goes on to say that
the jailer had come to believe in
God, "He and his whole family"
and were baptized.
Obviously families have differ-
ent levels of belief, depending on
the maturity of each of its mem-
bers; to assume that each must
have made some in-depth affir-
mation of faith is not stated.
Each believed at their own
level, even the young children-if
there were any.
In both cases "households"
and "families" were likely to in-
clude children; that is the more
common experience among fam-
ilies and households.
More likely than not, there
would have been children even
though nothing is specifically
stated.
That's not the point.
The best evidence is that a
whole family and a whole house-
hold were baptized; families and
households usually include chil-
dren.
Does the Bible say that? No.
What is said is really nothing
for or against the baptism of chil-
dren and infants.
Then you look to the best
sources you have; in this case
what people did in Biblical times.
Those practices were cited in
my article; they baptized infants
and the evidence for the practice
speaks for itself.
Two Episcopal Bishops are
cited in your article; persons who
belonged to a church that'has a
long and honorable tradition and
practice of baptizing infants.
One citation (rightly) states
that "there is no express mention
of any infant" when speaking of
Biblical references to baptism.
Nobody argues that point.
Likewise the article speaks of
King David feeling "low down
and exaggerates his guilt" when
speaking of original sin.
I am curious as to why the au-
thor seems to feel that (1) David


was exaggerating, as if that would
somehow make his words inac-
curate, and (2) why he wouldn't
be speaking what he knew even if
he was feeling "low down?"
The truth of people's words
doesn't always correlate with
their emotional state.
The writer goes on to speak
about what "this person" be-
lieves.
If "this person" is me, it might
be best to check in advance with
me before purporting to tell oth-
ers what I believe.
In his citing of Ezekiel 18:20,
the passage reads "The soul that
sinneth shall die; the son shall not
bear the iniquity of the father, nei-
ther shall the father bear the iniq-
.uity of the son (KJV which is one
translation.) The passage men-
tions both "sins" and "inequity".
"Iniquity" is translated as "law-
lessness" or "guilt" and these dif-
fer from sins.
Sins are, of course, transgres-
sions of God's laws; lawlessness
is related more to man's laws,
and guilt has to do with feelings
about actions, not whether they
are sins per se.
Ezekiel distinguished between
what God forbids and what has to
do with man's laws or our feel-
ings about them.
When speaking about doing
what you wish because the Bible
doesn't mention it, the author
cites an example about cocaine,
as if the "person" would some-
how condone it's use because the
Bible doesn't say not to do it.
That also misses the point.
What was said was "When
the Bible is silent, to go the best
sources you have" and "go where
the evidence best suggests." That
is what the "person" believes.
That is why it would be wrong
to use cocaine; the best sources
available give overwhelming evi-
dence that it is destructive and ad-
dictive, harmful, keeping people
from being all that they were
made to be by God, causing them
to do things destructive to them-
selves and others.


Using the same logic, it could
be said that we should avoid sur-
gery to save our life or dentistry -
after all, the Bible doesn't say "do
it" or "don't do it."
Nonsense!
You take the best evidence you
have and look for your acts as
reflective of a loving, kind, gener-
ous, forgiving and healing God.
There was a youngster once
who told me that marijuana must
be OK because the Bible speaks
of Jesus feeding 5,000 and men-
tions "Now there was much grass
in the place (John 6:10 KJV)."
I told him that he needed to
get his language and his thinking
straight; the big picture of God,
his creation and creatures tell us
otherwise.
People have ways of making
the Bible say what they want it to
say; the call is not to "read into"
the Bible but to "read out" of it.
An elder minister of my ac-
quaintance would say "A man
convinced his will is of the same
opinion still."
And I've found that to be very
true. That's why we seem to have
lots of "religions" around.
I like to think that God has
a place for all kinds of people;
those who were baptized as in-
fants, and those who were bap-
tized later in life; those who had a
child's understanding of faith and
those who have a more mature
understanding, those who were
growing along the way and those
who had others help them with
their foundations.
I don't think that Jesus wor-
ried about the baptismal state of
the two thieves on the cross next
to Him.
They were on their way to
Paradise and a new life... Like the
kids entrusted to us and that are
welcomed through their baptisms
into God's promises.

"Take Me Out to the Ballgame"
remains part of the musical tradi-
tion at ballparks around the coun-
try, especially during the seventh-
inning stretch. The seventh inning
stretch is a time-honored baseball
custom in which the fans ritual-
istically stand and stretch before
their team comes to bad in the
seventh inning. This is done not
only to relieve stiff muscles due
to sitting the previous six innings,
but perhaps also to bring luck to
one's team.

Blue Devil athlete shot at C 'IHk A


Shots fired at the ve-
hicle of a former Blue
Devils standout

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Two victims were
claimed in a late-night shooting
on Wednesday, July 16.
According to Eric Davis, a
deputy sheriff/spokesman for the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of-
fice, deputies responded to a host
of 'shots fired' calls at about 11:35
p.m.
Upon arrival to the scene of
the shooting, which took place in
the 400's block of Rardin Avenue,
deputies had reportedly made
rontact wArith 91-vear-old Andre .


Powell, who is a former Pahokee
Blue Devils wide receiver/corner-
back who helped lead the team
to the 2004 Class 2B state cham-
pionship.
The former All-State athlete
told detectives that his vehicle,
which wasn't identified, was fired
upon and hit twice, according to
Deputy Davis.
Investigators later reportedly
contacted 30-year-old Uoskia D.
Harvey, who suffered from a gun-
shot wound to his right thigh.
Officials said the victim was
taken by a group of his friends to
Glades General Community Hos-
pital for treatment.
It is not known at this time
whether or not the shooting was
gang-related, as it was in the case
nf the Julh 5 incident that took


place nearby.
The Palm Beach County Vio-
lent Crimes Task Force has adopt-
ed this case, as no suspects have
been identified in regards to the
incident.
Anyone who has information
on the shooting is urged by the
sheriff's office to either call its
detectives at 688-4050 or Crime
Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
You could also e-mail Crime
Stoppers from the Internet at
tips@cspbc.net.

Port

nations to expand, other locations
must be considered to ease the
congestion along the coastline.
An inland port is described as
a distribution center which pro-
vides possibilities for intermodal
transfers regarding rail, truck and
ship operations.
With that in mind, the inland
port is not only set to improve
rail efficiencies throughout South
Florida, but many new jobs
would come to the Glades area
like never before.
"This is one of the .few loca-
tions in the state that has that
many railway connections in the
space available," Mr. Baker said.
"Jobs will not be seasonal and
won't be outsourced to other
countries like India. They will be
available 24 hours a day, seven
days a week."
The inland port is proposed to
be built on approximately 3,500
acres, which will feature an ar-
ray of warehouses for distribution
and light manufacturing.
A secure rail interchange facil-
ity is plarined for the inland port,
which will connect the coastal
areas to the Glades, provided that
the area will win the bid over Mar-
tin County, its main competitor.
Mr. Baker said that if the inland
port comes to the Glades area, it
will provide for over 5,000 direct
jobs, with potential employees
making a mean salary of approxi-
mately $35,000 per year.
The direct jobs would focus on
such areas as construction, truck-
ing, maintenance, dispatch, parts,
security and much more.
It doesn't take into account the
unspecified amount of indirect-
jobs that will be available, which
include business opportunities in
sectors like retail, shipping, distri-
bution and fueling, to name just
a few.
"The development of this fa-
cility is a lofty goal," Ms. Larpche


said.
"It will take working in partner-
ship with the state, the county, the
Lake Region communities and'
the environmental community to
make it a reality."

Obstacles to overcome

Indications seem to point to
the possibility that the Port of Palm
Beach prefers to have the port lo-
cated in the Glades area.
For that to happen, land must
be available.
The recent decision by U.S.
Sugar to sell all of its 187,000 acres
of land to the South Florida Water
Management District .SF WMD),
has caused major concerns for
the entire area.
With approximately 1,700 jobs
that stand to be lost in the next
six years, the area now seems to
be clinging to economic survival,
since agriculture is the' primary in-
dustry locally.
Not only that, the land owned
by Florida Crystals may very well
. be the deciding factor to whether'
or -not the inland port will even
come to the Glades.
Two. of the three Glades area
possible sites, located south of
South Bay, cover land generally
owned by Florida Crystals..
The land in question covers
about 44,000 acres, which is also
considered for the building of a
water flow way by the South Flor-
ida Water Management District.
Florida Crystals owns 150,000
acres of land in total, with the ma-
jority of it scattered throughout
western Palm Beach County.
"We're at a crossroads at Flori-
da Crystals and in agriculture as a
whole," said Gaston Cantens, the
sugar company's vice president.
"We hope to put and end to
the endless environmental litiga-
tions that have gone on for years.
We have been open-minded and
supportive of what the state wants
to do in this process."
Since the water district will


be owning the land sold by U.S.
Sugar, there has been major con-
cerns of what's going to happen
with the Clewiston sugar mill,
one of U.S. Sugar's most prized
possessions.
Mr. Cantens said it has been
speculated Florida Crystals is in-
terested to take over the Clewis-
ton mill, but the sugar company
Hasn't had a chance to inspect the
facility.
"We must take a long look at
the operation before coming with
a sound decision for Florida Crys-
tals," Mr. Cantens said.
Negotiations have just begun
between Florida Crystals and the
water district for a possible land
swap, which could make or break
the inland port project's chances
of happening in the near future.
But for the land swap to oc-
cur, Mr. Cantens said that Florida
Crystals will need at least 150,000
acres of land to continue its sugar
cane operations.
The amount of land Florida
Crystals will receive as a result of
the proposed swap remains to be
seen.
"The Clewiston mill, without
the land, is worthless," Mr. Can-
tens said.
"If you do not have enough
value to feed the mill, then it's
scrap value.'
With 1,000 jobs currently at
the Okeelanta site, owned by
Florida Crystals, Mr. Cantens ex-
plored the possibility of the inland
port being constructed around
the operation.
The Okeelanta distribution fa-
cility is located off U.S. 27, about
10 miles south of South Bay.
"We are committed to bring-
ing the port to Okeelanta," Mr.
Cantens said.
"But I heard a county commis-
sioner say that the port should be
in Martin County due to our flow
way issues."

sioner Jess Santamaria, who rep-
resents the Glades area, said that

tween South Bay and Lake Har-
bor will be flooded but the com-
partment will be engineered and
managed by the water district ini
efforts to help restore the Ever4-
glades.
But fqr that to happen, Florida
Crystals must agree to relinquish
the land desired by the district.
And that won't be an easy task
for the water district to accom-
plish.
"We're interested in having 4
deal with the South Florida Wa-
tertManagement District that will
allow for the maximum preser-
vation of jobs in the region," Mr.
Cantens said.
"But it doesn't make sense for
us to make the deal if we don't
have enough land.
"The bigger theflow way, the
less land we have available for
sugar cane."
Officials said that a decision
on the inland port, as well as the
closing of the water district's land
acquisition, will be made within
the next 50 days.
