Belle Glade budget includes major cuts


Delaney: 'Unfunding
a director's position
is asinine'

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Tensions
boiled during the Aug. 28 bud-
get workshop meeting in Belle
Glade.
Though city officials found a
way to balance -its budget, the
route to get there was not easy,
by any means.
In the proposed 2008-2009
fiscal year budget,, three top


management positions are set to
be eliminated as of Oct. 1.
Those positions include the
finance director, public works
director and the assistant finance
director.
Not only that, the assistant
city manager will have to face a
$20,000 cut in pay.
As previously reported, the
salaries of, the aforementioned
positions, would have been as
follows:
Public Works Director:'
$109,200 (w/o COLA), $112,476
(w/COLA)'
Finance Director: $90,745
(w/o COLA), $93,468 (w/COLA)


Assistant Finance Di-
rector: $75,005 (w/o COLA),
,$77,255 (w/COLA)
Assistant City Manager:
$70,304 (w/o COLA), $72,413
(w/COLA)
COLA stands for cost-of-living
adjustment increase, which the
city has ruled that nobody will be
getting as a result of the budget
crunch.
Lilian Tomeu, the city's as-
sistant manager, was highly up-
set after learning that her salary
would be cut from $70,304 to
$50,304 per year.
Shelly Miller, a Belle Glade
city commissioner, was notice-

Glades Central plans to move ahead


School enforces
.strict rules after
receiving'F' rating,
this year

By Naji Tobias
The Sun,
BELLE GLADE "We were
right there, but it, was just not
enough," said Dr. Camille Cole-
man, the Glades Central High
School principal..
That's in regards to the
school's 'F' rating for the second
consecutive year.
When the school grades
came out in early July, the news
about Glades Central's failing


grade sent shockwaves to many
.teachers and administrators who
work there.
The high school also failed to
meet adequate yearly progress
(AYP) for the fifth year in a ro\\.
Glades centrall High School
was the only school in Palm.
Beach County to receive an F
grade two consecutive years, a
dubious feat.
Breakdown of Glades
Central's rating
Scoring less than 395 grade
points earned' nets a F rating
for any school, according to in-
formation provided .by the Fla.
Department of Education (FL-
DOE).


Under the format provided by
the slate, Glades Central scored.
390 points this year, just five
points away from passing.
That's a nine-point improve-
ment from last year, when the
school scored 381 points.
I- Of all the students in ninth
grade, just 24 percent of the
class passed the .FCAT examinla-
tion in reading, according to the
state. The most disappointing
results came from the .1 th grad-
ers, with only 11 percent report-
edly passing the reading portion
of.theFCAT. .
For the freshmen, 47 percent
of them made learning gains in
reading, while only 29 percent of

ably opposed to Ms. Tomeu's
salary cut.
"In light of what we've been
told from the city manager, I
don't think $20,000 would help
us with our budget," Commis-
sioner Miller said.
"No one should be taking
a cut in their salary, especially
those in positions like hers."
Rita Tomeu, Ms. Tomeu's
mother, was visibly displeased*'
with the city's decision as she
stood before the dais.'
"I'm talking about a Hispanic
woman who wanted to come
help the city of Belle Glade," Ms.
Tomeu's -mother told the com-


missioners.
"Lilian has worked so many
hours, she worked so hard.
"Thete have been many His-
panics who have come to her for
help and she's done that," she
said passionately.
"Lilian did.all that she could
and I think she deserves an ap-
plause."'
Concerns arose that some
commissioners had personal
agendas in how .some of the lat-
est budget proposals have been
made.

Pahokee city hall


destroyed by Fay


Estimated damages:
reportedly at $1.5
million

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE The city held a
special meeting on Wednesday,
Aug. 20 as it declared a state of
emergency for the storm-rav-
aged area.
Affected greatly by Tropical
Storm Fay, the close-knit com-
munity lost one of its most
important structures in the city
hall building.
According to Wayne Whi-
taker, the city's mayor, in, the
- wee hours of.Aug. 18, the time
period that Fay started to make
its presence felt in the area, a
major leak destroyed some of
the building's offices.
The finance office caved in,
with piles of sheet rock filling
.the area.
The kitchenette was also af-
fected as some ceiling elements
of the room fell into the sink.
The .city. hall chambers,
where commission meetings
are held, was also destroyed. In
the same area, television equip-
ment was damaged. .
It is not known$.et how
much of that equipment is sal.
vageable, city officials said.
In the stairwell, the area
smelled like mold and mildew,
evidenced by pieces of the ceil-
ing dropping all the way down.
to the floor.
In addition, the city's web-
site was out of commission.
The estimated damages to
city hall totaled approximately
$1.5 million, according to May-
or Whitaker.
Pahokee, which experi-
enced 10.5 inches of rain as a
result of the storm, was report-
edly the hardest-hit community


in Palm Beach County.
Wellington ranked at a not-
too-distant second with dam-
ages estimated at about $1.25
million, according to published
reports.
Interestingly, Pahokee's
. neighboring cities Belle Glade
and South Bay suffered no
noticeable damages from Fay,
according to officials from both
municipalities.
A subdued feeling,
positive outlook
The city commission meet-
ings, according to the mayor,
will be held at the Pahokee
Recreation Center's cafeteria,
'which is also used by Ever-
glades Prepaiatoiv Academy.
The code enforcement and
community development de-
partments must share a room
at the city's Chamber of Com-
merce building.
And the majority of the city's
departments finance, human
resources, city clerk and city
manager will now be housed
at a temporary site at 207 Be.
gonia Ave.
The new city hall location,
which is much smaller than
the now-abandoned two-slorv
facility, used to be a doctor's
office years ago, according to
Dianei Walker, a Pahokee city
commissioner.
"It's a devastation to our
community because it has dis.
rupted operations of city hall,"
Commissioner Walker said
"We've had to re-route citizens
to another building to pay their
utility bills." '
City hall* operations were
closed for. business for two
'days Aug. 19 and 20. But on
Thursday, Aug 21, officials an-
nounced the new location as

New weir protects flow-way


By Katrina Elsken
INI Florida
A record drought followed by
a storm that brought record wa-
terfall is testing the limits of the
South Florida Water Management
District's flood control.structures.
One structure was completed
just in time to prevent what could
have been a regional disaster.
A new weir protecting the
S-65E lock and spillway on the
Kissimmee River reached "sub-
stantial completion" on Aug. 3,
less than two weeks before Tropi-
cal Storm Fay flooded the area
with record rainfall.
The weir solved a problem
created by the storms of 2004
and 2005. The S-65E is the last
lock on the Kissimmee River
before it reaches Lake Okeecho-
bee. Due to the hurricanes, the
large volume of water passing
through the structure scoured the
river bottom, leaving a hole 20
feet deep and 200 feet wide. Left
unchecked, the condition could*
have caused the water control
structure to collapse, which in
turn would have threatened the
stability of the water control struc-
tures upriver in turn.
Based on records that go back
to 1932, 2006 and 2007 were
the driest years on record. The
records show that in that same
time frame, Tropical Storm Fay
dumped the most water on the
area in a one week period.
Low water south of the S-65E
structure and record rainfall
draining south could have spelled
disaster.
But the new weir worked ex-
actly as it was designed, maintain-
ing a constant water level south


Okeechobee News/Katrina Elsken
The new weir south of S-65E lock and flow-way keeps the
water on the south side of the water control structure high
enough to prevent erosion of the river bottom and protect the
stability of the structure.


of the water control structure and
helping to absorb some of the en-
ergy of the rushing floodwater.
"During the 2004 and 2005 hur-
ricane season, we saw the highest
flow ever at this structure, and we
saw damage here with a scour
hole," said George Home, Deputy
Executive Director of Operation
and Maintenance. "With the lake
being so low, we were concerned
about future storms. The purpose
of the weir structure is to be able
to safely maximize the discharges
downstream.
"Without the structure, we
could only have opened the S-65E
a minimal six inches," he said.
"With the weir, we can safely
open it six feet."
This means they can safely
move water down the Kissimmee
River and into Lake Okeechobee
much faster. He said on Friday,
the flow was about 21,000 cubic
feet of water per second -- that's
about 164,000 gallons of water a
second. Without the new struc-


ture, had they been forced to
only allow minimal water out, the
massive upstream flooding could
have been catastrophic for those
in the Kissimmee River Valley.
Had they opened the S-65E
flood control structure to maxi-
mum capacity without the new
weir, the. pressure of the water
could have collapsed, the. struc-
ture and in turn caused a domino
effect on other flood control struc-
tures on the river.
"If the structures fail, the water
will drain quickly," Mr Home said.
"But then we Would have no way
to hold it and would face water,
issues."
The water control structures
are necessary for "life as we know
it" in Florida, he said.
Project Engineer Kathy 'Col-
lins explained the construction
of the weir was fast-tracked and
was actually completed before its
original Aug. 17, deadline, thanks
to the construction crews, who
worked 'round the clock when

they poured the concrete.
The weir consists of round
concrete structures which cause
the water to flow to the center
of the channel, where a series of
underwater walls slows the flow
and dissipates some of the ener-
gy. The weir maintains a constant
water level on the south side of
the S-65E water, control structure
so that water coming through the
structure at high speed does not
hit the bottom of the river with
enough force to erode away the
river bottom.
"If the weir had not been com-
pleted before Fay hit, the system
could have failed," she said.
The weir is the largest single
water control structure SFWMD
has ever built.
By Wednesday, water was
coming through the S-65E spill-
way at a rate of 14,000 cfs or
about 100,000 gallons a second.
Mr. Home said they expect high
flows for about two weeks, as

ers from the Tropical Storm Fa.

"There is still a lot of flooding in
some areas," he said. Water from
Orlando south drains through the

God and "Gay Rights!"


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Last week a major political
party made it known in no uncer-
tain terms that it supported "Gay
Rights" and "A Mothers, Right To
Choose."
This week I will deal with the
first issue, "Gay Rights" and next
week I will deal with the second.
In the book of Genesis we
read: "Now the men of Sodom
were wicked exceedingly and sin-
ners against the Lord."
Sodom was in the Jordan val-
ley near the Dead Sea.
When Lot thought that Ca-
naan's pastures were not large
enough for his flocks, he chose
Sodom for himself and his family.
Abram was quite content to
remain in Canaan.
Lot's choice reminds us of
Adam's decision to eat the forbid-
den fruit.
Adam's penalty was death!



Just w]

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A friend of mine shared some
insights he uses to help him deal
with life's daily grind.
He stated, "You need to accept
that some days you're the pigeon,
and some days you're the statue.
Always keep your words soft and
sweet, just in case you have to eat
them. Always read 'stuff that will
make you look good if you die in
the middle of it. Never put both
feet in your mouth at the same
time, because then you won't
have a leg to stand on.".
Other words of advice: "Drive
carefully. It's not only cars that
can be recalled by their maker.
When everything's coming your
way, you're probably in the
wrong lane. We could learn a lot
from crayons some are sharp,
some are pretty, some are dull,
and some have weird names, but
they all have to live in the same!


Lot was a righteous man, but
he chose to live in a cesspool of
sin (2 Peter 2:7).
The Lord knew the gravity of
the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah
(Genesis 18:20) and determined
to call these people before His
judgment bar.
Abraham was deeply con-
cerned about his nephew, Lot,
and as he bargained with the
Judge of all men, Abraham heard
God say that He would spare So-
dom if there were Ten righteous
men there.
Life in Sodom for a godly man
and his family was filled with dan-
gers.
Men violated the bodies of one
.another with or without consent.
In this regard Lot was clean.
He was no homosexual!
He had not violated another
and miraculously he had escaped
the lustful Sodomites.
Angels came to visit Sodom
and while they were guests in
Lot's.house, men of Sodom came


demanding the use of the Angels
to satisfy the lusts of their flesh.
Even though they were blind-
ed, the Sodomite males beat on
Lot's door.
The angels were spared this
shame.
By God's power Lot and his
family were delivered.
When Lot heard the angelic
charge, "Escape for your life.
Don't look behind you." the Lord
;rained brimstone and fire on So-
dom and Gomorrah (Genesis
19:26).
What does God tell us about
"gay rights"?
Homosexuals are human be-
ings (perhaps too much so). They
'have a right to hear the gospel.
God sent angels to' visit So-
dom. .
We are bound by our commit-
ment to Christ to tell them Christ,
loves them.
They have a right to know that
God does not regard homosexual
and lesbian as a alternate life


style.
The Lord gave Adam a wife,
not another man.
The Lord gave Eve a husband,
not another woman.
They have a right to know that
this kind of conduct is sin and that
God brings His severest judgment
on those who practice it.
They have a right to be warned
that the Lord will deliver His peo-
ple from the cesspools of this
kind of conduct when His people
call for help.
They have a right to take ad-
vantage of the opportunity to pre-
pare to meet God face to face as
they attempt to explain why they
have ruined His image.
. They have a right to know that
fornicators, idolaters, adulterers;

box. A truly happy person is one
who can enjoy the scenery on a
detour."
I appreciated and even smiled
as I read some of his tips, but
when it comes to work and the
daily grind, I have seven heroes I
turn to.
They are miners.
They work in their mine all day
long. They start each day sing-
ing, "Heigh ho! Heigh ho! It's off
to work we go!" arind while they
work they whistle and sing, "Just
whistle while you work!"
Sleepy, Doc, Dopey, Happy,
Grumpy,. Sneezy, and Bashful
are just cartoons, but these guys
seem to have it all together when
it comes to work!
They are doing something they
enjoy, something they believe is
important, and they get pleasure
out of their work.
It's not just a paycheck.
They sing out, "We dig, dig,


dig in our 'mine the whole day
through, to 'dig, dig, dig, is what
we like to do!"
Would that we could all derive
as much pleasure and satisfaction
from our work as do the seven
dwarfs. Would that we all could
share their attitude about our la-
bors!
I have known people who
shared, "I go to work every morn-
ing and I endure it." Or, "I am just
there for the paycheck.".
When I hear things like that, I
think about how fortunate that I
am.
J feel called to my work. If truth
be known, I would probably do it
, even if I were not being paid.
But even still, there. are days
when I don't want to come to
work. There are days when I'd
rather be somewhere else. Yes,
there are some days even the pas-,
tor doesn't want to get up and
go to work because work can be


hard, and work can be frustrating,
and working can be tiring.
I think our faith tells us that al-
though no job is perfect, there are
ways to get more meaning and
joy out of our work.
: Probably the most obvious
.way is to realize that our work, no
matter what it is we do, touches
someone somewhere. Work is
about relationships; it is about
making life better for someone
.beside us. This aspect of work
may be hard to see in some jobs,
but I believe it is there nonethe-
less. ,
. Our work takes on new mean-
ing when we see it as blessing
others. And if as Christians. we
add a little bit of faith to what we
do for a, living, we may discover
our. work bringing\ us more joy
and less stress, more satisfaction
and less fatigue.
We may even find ourselves
whistling while we work!


Labor Day reflections: ,The real work


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph D.
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
Labor Day is, past now. It has,
come and gone slipped by the
last of the Summer holidays and a
reminder that Summer is gone.
As I think about "labor" and
"work" I am reminded of a saying
that used to sit in a frame on my
windowvsill; "Happiness is when
you do what is pleasing to others
and pleasing to yourself."
This: is not "putting in time in
exchange for money" but being,
fulfilled by the work we.do. .
For many, the real "work" is in
being a good parent, serving in a
community organization, volun-
teering to help or to accomplish
something this pleasing:
This can be more taxing, more
demanding, more tiring than any
forty-hour week. it is work but it is
fulfilling that's real work,
A recent article spoke of peo-
ple who find themselves begin-
ning careers and not really feeling
as if they "fit" or "belong."
I've known that to happen to
clergy; pondering whether they.
are "called" to work in the Lord's
vineyard or really fit for ministry.
Sometimes, the answer comes
later; when they explore other
fields or find some other line of
work more fulfilling.
One of my classmates from
'seminary heard that I had left a
ministry in alcholism and was
returning to a parish ministry. He
sent me a note saying "We always
wind up in parish ministry, that
must be where we belong!"


Looking back, I find that I al-
ways do "wind up in parish min-
istry" with its many wonderful
and different facets, places and
people, experiences and opportu-
nities. It's never been boring.
When thinking about the op-
portunity to take it easier, I imme-
diately and instinctively feel, "No
Way!"
I've decided that retirement
will' have to be forced on me;
there is too much to do, too much
that is fascinating in the .wrk-a-
day world where I find myself in
my vocation of forty-plus years.
- A reflection came to me as I
thoughtt about this holiday and
'my vocation; and; everyone's.vo-
cation too..
The Greek word for "worship"
literally means "The work of the
people."
We don't often think of "wor-
ship" as "work" (there are enough
jokes about the clergy and work
to make this point!), but it is our
bounden duty and our "work."'
The work comes when we
think about what it is that we
are doing on Sunday morning or
whenever it is that we worship.
I try to take a few minutes be-
fore leading services to "worship"
on my own; soon I will be busy
leading, reading, preaching, cel-
ebrating helping others and par-
ticipating too; but a moment of
silence to begin helps me reflect
on the work about to be under-
taken:
I think about the past week,
the last time I worshipped, I think
about what parts of that week
I can offer up to God; what was
accomplished and what remains


to be'done, about the people I've work, that's our worship, that's
encountered and whose lives what we're really about.

www.newszap.com, click on the community name and your

discussions currently taking place. Thanks for participating!

Pahokee Commission meeting


I am writing in response to the article in the Speak Out section
regarding the Pahokee commission meeting. It seems that Sasser and
his "friends" are pretty sore losers. I think they are acting very child-
ish and petty, especially when they stoop so low as to call our Mayor
Wayne Whitaker names.
The comment was made that the city has been in bad shape for
years. Under whose leadership?
Mayor Whitaker has only been in office for a few months. Could
it be that maybe we did have someone in office that couldn't read a
budget or balance a check book?
If Sasser and his "friends" were as interested in helping our city, as
they say they are, they should stop finding fault with Mayor Whitaker
and join together to help him. Mayor Whitaker has been a success-
ful business man in our community, so he can't be all that ignorant.
Shame on you!
Grow up and accept your defeat. It was a fair race. If you can't do
that then move on!

Renovation
The renovation progress of Palm Beach County Fire Res-
cue Station 73, located on S. W. 2nd Ave. in Belle Glade,
has been going smoothly since construction began in
January. The project is slated to be finished in May 2009.


Palm Beach County suicide calls up from last year


PALM BEACH-The 24-hour
crisis line, 211, has received 87 per-
cent more calls this year from Palm
Beach County residents consider-
ing suicide than in the same time
period last year.
One reason for this, said Susan
Buza, 211 Palm Beach/IYeasure
Coast Executive Director, is the sag-
ging economy. "We've gotten al-
most three times as many calls this
year from people who are thinking
about suicide because of financial
problems," Buza said.
The time periods compared
were Jan. 1, through June 10, 2007
and the same period in 2008. 211


received 137 Palm Beach County
suicide calls in 2007 and 256 calls
in 2008. In 2007, 15 callers said they
were considering suicide because
they were homeless, had a home
in foreclosure, had lost their job or
didn't have enough money to pay
their bills. In 2008, 44 suicidal call-
ers gave one of those reasons as the
main cause of their distress.
The most common reason Palm.
Beach County callers mentioned for
contemplating suicide was depres-
sion-58 in 2007 and 54 in 2008.
Other reasons included relation-
ships (27 in 2007, 59 in 2008); men-
tal illness (9 in 2007, 56 in 2008);


drugs or alcohol (11 in 2007, 16 in
2008); health issues (8 in 2007, 16 in
2008); bereavement (5 in 2007, 4 in
2008); and unknown (4 in 2007, 7
in 2008).
"When we get a call from some-
one contemplating suicide," said
Executive Director Buza, "our main
task is to de-escalate the situation
and help the'caller find a reason to
go on living. We will stay on the line
for as long as that takes.
"We connect callers with avail-
able resources," she continued, "or,
if they want to hang up, we try to
get a commitment from them to
call us back if they start feeling de-


spondent again."
211 has a team of specially
trained staff and volunteers who are
available 24 hours a day, 365 days
a year to assist callers with infor-
mation and referral services, crisis
counseling and suicide intervention.
Serving people of all ages in Palm,
Beach, Martin; St. Lucie, Okeecho-
bee and Indian River Counties, 211
responded to more than 155,000
calls in 2007.
211 is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit agen-
cy in its fourth decade of service. For
assistance, callers simply dial 211
anywhere in the five-county area.

Pickett's grab seals win for Glades Central


Moore Haven wins
big, Glades Day loses
kickoff classic game
By Naji Tobias
INI/Florida
BELLE GLADE Fred Pickett
could be called. Mr. Clutch for
Glades Central. '
For the second game in a row,
he came through when it mat-
tered most.
The junior wide receiver, who
caught the game-winning pass in
the Raiders' 54-46 win over Miami
Central this spring, helped the
Raiders pull off a 15-12 comeback
win over the Dillard Panthers on
Aug. 29.
Down 12-7 with just 1:08 left in
the game, the Raiders lined up for
a quick slant play.
On third down, junior quarter-
back Leron 'L.J.' Thomas made a
quick throw to Pickett in the end
zone for a 7-yard touchdown.
It was Pickett's only reception
ofthe game.
"I was happy I caught it," Pick-
*ett said after the game.
"It was open the whole way;
Coach (Jessie Hester) called the
right play.
"Dillard had no safety to cover
me, it was just me and the corner-
back," Pickett continued, as he
explained the play sequence.
"He played me man-to-man, I


did a quick release and I saw L.J.
release the ball."
Though he bobbled the ball
after a Dillard defender hit him,
Pickett used his hand-eye coordi-
nation to secure that grab.
"It was clutch, no doubt about
it," Hester said the about game-
winning play. "Dillard gave us a
look with an all-out blitz.
"We were trying to get the play
off, Dillard's cornerbacks kept
flushing out our quarterback,"
Hester continued.
"It was a great catch, Pickett
made the grab and stayed with
it."
Thomas ran the ball in for
a. two-point conversion to put
Glades Central up by three points,
which proved to be the margin of
victory.
The junior quarterback, who
was 13-for-24 with two touch-
downs and two interceptions,
connected with Rantavious Woo-
ten on Glades Central's first play
of the game.
The Raiders' top receiver, who
orally committed to LSU hours
before the game, outran Dillard's
secondary for a 40-yard touch-
down early in the first quarter.
"Rantaviou s a tremendous
player, LSU is getting a great kid,"
Hester said. "He'll always have a
good game from here on out."
This victory was, by no means,
an easy one for the Raiders.
Just a few plays before the


game-winning grab, it had ap-
peared Dillard would come out
victorious.
But after an apparent fourth-
down incompletion from the
Raiders, the Panthers were flagged
for pass interference.
It effectively killed Dillard's
chances of pulling off the upset
win.
Dillard couldn't get senior run-
ning back Trabis Ward into the
end zone, although, the highly-
coveted back ran for 122 yards on
30 carries in the game.
"Glades Central is a team that
has a great tradition," Ward said.
"They'll make me better down
the line because running against
them, you have to get past a fast,
swarming group. Now I know I
can run against any defense."
Keith Frank, Dillard's head
coach, summed up the game for
his team.'
"We're a good young team,
but we're still trying to find our
way," Frank said.
"Trabis is a great running back,
he did real good tonight.
"Glades Central has a great
program here," Frank continued.
"It just feels good for Hester to
come back and give to the pro-
gram.
"They got a homegrown prod-
uct coaching and I think he'll
do well," the Dillard coach said.
"The kids play well for Hester and
I wish him the best."

Moore Haven 34, Summit
Christian 13: Junior running
back Fred Hall led the Terriers
rushing attack as he recorded 14
carries for 134 yards.
Hall's top highlight came in
the first quarter, when he scored
Moore Haven's first touchdown
on a 65-yard run.
Dalton Britt, the team's senior
quarterback, accounted for two
of Moore Haven's touchdowns in
the game.
He threw one (6-for-17, 103
passing yards) and rushed for one
as well.
Royal Palm Beach 21,
Glades Day 14: Bo Schlecter
threw for two touchdowns in the


game, both to senior wide .receiv-
er Deandre Jackson, a transfer
from Suncoast.
However, Glades Day's ,rush-
ing defense allowed 200 yards, in-
cluding a game-winning 60-yard
run from Javonte Green in the
fourth quarter.
What also hurt the Gators was
its own running game, as senior
, Brandon Dean was out with a
pulled hamstring.
Nevertheless, Glades Day got
its first chance to see Calvin Tay-
lor in action.

back, who's the son of NFL star

yards in his debut.

it sounds too good to be
true, chances are that it is.

long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our

Storm Fay displays weather extremes


Two years of

drought, one
week of deluge

underscore water
management chal-

lenges

West Palm Beach, Fla.
---Even as a two-year water
shortage and rainfall defi-
cit steadily dropped Lake
Okeechobee's water level
to an all-time record low of
8.82 feet on July 2, 2007, the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) was
strengthening its flood protec-
tion system with the largest
single water control structure
it has ever built. ,,
The new weir protecting
the S-65E lock and spillway
on the Kissimmee River was
completed about two weeks
before Tropical Storm Fay
swept into South-Florida. The
region's prolonged dry condi-
tions, which led to 4,630 wild-
fires in 2007 and threatened
water supplies for millions
of people, had just begun to
ease when the tropical storm
dropped more than 14 inches
of rain at some locations.
"We transitioned almost
overnight from managing a
water shortage to lowering
canals for flood protection
in advance of Tropical Storm
Fay," said SFWMD Opera-
tions Director Susan Sylves-
ter. "Florida's unpredictable
weather requires continual
balancing of those missions.
Our systems again exhibited
strong performance during
the storm because of our
continual preparation, main-
tenance and planning."
The District carried out
pre-storm preparations by
drawing down canals to


make room for storing as
much storm water as possi-
ble several days before Tropi-
cal Storm Fay hit. During the
approximately six days Fay
slowly spun across the state,
the following data were re-
corded across the region:
-An average of 7.59 inches
of rain fell throughout the Dis-
trict.
-Rainfall ranged from
about 5 inches in parts of
Miami-Dade County to more
than 10 inches in the Caloo-
sahatchee Basin and Hendry
County.
-Lake Okeechobee rose
more than 24 inches, to 13.63
feet as of August 26, up from
11.34 feet on August 19, as Fay
began to impact the state.
-The lake rose more than
two.feet in a single week for
the first time in recorded his-
tory, based on records dating
back to 1931.
-The largest weekly rise
prior to Fay was about 1.7.feet
in October 1951. -
-The largest weekly rise
during the 2004 wet season
was about 1.5 feet.
Stormwater runoff from
Fay is still flowing into the 730-
square-mile lake. The District
remains in contact with and
is providing data to the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, the
agency responsible for man-
aging the lake level.
Fay also swelled the rain-
fall total so far for the month
of August to 10.63 inches, ap-
proximately double the nor-
mal amount.
"This is only late August.
September is peak hurricane
season," said SFWMD meteo-
rologist Geoff Shaughnessy.
"And we're not even through
the wet season."
The District's operations
center and technical staff re-
main on alert and continue
to prepare the flood protec-


tion system for potential sum-
mer-storms. Another deluge
on the heels of Fay would
represent more water man-
agement challenges for the
District. The sheer amount of
rain from Fay in such a short
period of time triggered local-
ized flooding, which could
be exacerbated by another
storm.
The total amount of wet
season rainfall remains un-
certain. Consequently, water
managers do not yet know
how much water South Flor-
ida will have in the system to
start the dry season in Decem-
ber. Based on records dating,
back to 1932, 2006 and 2007
were the driest back-to-back
calendar years on record, cre-.
ating a combined rainfall defi-..
cit of more than 20 inches.
For that reason, the District
staff continues work on ayear-
round water conservation
plan. Successfully fostering a
strong ethic of conservation.
will protect South Florida's
sensitive water resources and
help ensure a more sustain-
able supply of water for both
natural systems and people
throughout the year.
Managing Every Drop
About the South Florida
Water Management District
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is a regional,
governmental agency that
oversees the water resources
in the southern half of the state
- 16 counties from Orlando to
the Keys. It is the oldest and
largest of the state's five wa-
ter management districts. The
agency mission is to manage
and protect water resources
of the region by balancing
and improving water quality,
flood control, natural systems
and water supply. A key initia-
tive is cleanup and restoration
of the Everglades.

Missions trip to Jamaica an eye-opening experience


Locals embark on
journey they won't
soon forget

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Desmond
Harriet took about 25 locals with
him on a missionary trip several
weeks ago.
It was a 10-day experience out-
side of the United States, which
was from July 12-21.
Harriet, a native of Jamaica, re-
turned to his homeland in efforts
to bring hope to the less fortunate
there.
In his 15th year making the
summer trip, the deacon from
First Baptist Church offered some
an opportunity to leave the coun-
try for the first time.
There were 21 children in the
group of 26, with all' but one of
them students from Glades Cen-
tral High School.
The trip's chaperones were
Wenfred Dorsey, Parthenia Clark,
Gwendolyn Asia-Holley and Mela-
nie Bolden-Morris.
Mr. Harriet said that many of
the youth members had never
even flown a plane prior to the
missions trip.
"We wanted to give the kids an
opportunity to experience anoth-
er culture in how the youth down
there live," Mr. harriet said.
"They got a chance to see how
the Jamaican kids live happy even
though they have less than what
our kids enjoy."
The entire group flew to Kings-
ton, the capital city in Jamaica.
While they spent some time in
the country's biggest metropolis,
the missionary work was in West-
ern St. Andrews, a town located
about six miles from Kingston.
The major work included the
painting 'of two. churches in the
town, Canaa Gospel Chapel and
Olivet Gospel Chapel.


Submitted to INI
Wenfred Dorsey paints a church during his missions trip to Jamaica. A total of 26 people
went to the summer journey, which was organized by Desmond Harriet.


Though it took four days for
the churches to be re-painted,
Mr. Harriet and his group were
pleased with the completion of
the task.
"Over the years, the paint from
the churches were stripped off,"
Mr. Harriet said, while adding that
the walls had to be washed off
first to paint the facilities.
"It needed to be done."
It was just one of many things
that the group accomplished in its
mission..
The youth and chaperones en-
gaged 'in Vacation Bible School,
which included two Bible. study
sessions one in the morning be-
fore tasks and another after din-
ner.
Ms. Asia-Holley said that the Ja-


maican youth in the area joined in
the group and had a great time.
The study sessions reportedly
started with approximately 50
children and doubled its growth
toward the end of the missions
trip.
After the evening Bible study
lessons, the kids played ping-
pong, volleyball, basketball, soc-
cer and cricket until it was time to.
go to sleep.
"It was Christian-oreiented for
the kids to develop their relation-
ship with Christ," Ms. Asia-Holley
said.
"The trip taught them to re-
spect other cultures and enhance
their people skills."
Ms. Asia-Holley vividly remem-
bered one youth member seeing


a man get his yardwork done
with a machete.
"You know what, my mom
will never have. to ask me to cut
the grass again," the boy said to
Ms. Asia-Holley.
, "And guess what? We have a
lawn mower."
The group had the opportunity
.to attend several different church-
es.
Many of the services attended
were from a variety of denomina-
tions, some they youth weren't
used to.
Also, in some of the buildings,
they were somehow self-ventilat-
ed.
For example, in many church-
es there, ceiling fans are in use
and the windows are opened


wide enough so that air could
properly flow through.
"It was very different for the
kids to go to a facility without an
air-conditioner," Ms. Asia-Holley
said.
Ms. Clark said that the group
adjusted to the Jamaicans' eating
habits.
She compared and contrasted
how collard greens are eaten in
the United States and in Jamaica.
"We eat collard greens and
they, eat collu, which is a little
different," Ms. Clark explained.
"What they do is steam it on top
of the stove."
One of the group's favorite
places to eat there was at Devon's
House, a homemade Jamaica ice-
cream shop.
In that country, ice cream.is.
generally made with fresh fruits,
such as rum raisins and strawber-
ries.
It's somewhat different from
in the U.S. because most of the
ice cream made here is manufac-
tured and proccessed.
The group traveled to places
such as the Bob Marley Museum,
which featured historical collec-
tions of the legendary reggae art-
ist. *
Other locations included trips
to the beach and shopping at a
two-story mall, which is a wel-
come surprise given the fact that
many buildings there have only
one floor.
Two children were baptized at
Duun's River Falls, which is one-
and-a-half hours from Kingston.
. There, the group was able to
enjoy the natural elements as they
walked through the landscape.
According to Mr. Dorsey, the
experience was on the seventh
day of the trip, which would be
Friday, July 18.
In Mr. Dorsey's missions trip
journal, which outlined many
highlights from the journey, the
group went to Ochos Rios, which
includes Dunn's River Falls.


. He witnessed many business-
es taking place in the mountains,
which featured merchants selling
items-such as jewelry, mangoes
and hand-crafted wood, to name
just a few.
"One would think,that there's
no civilization up there," Mr. Dors-
ey wrote in his journal. "I beg to
differ."
According to the journal entry,
Mr. Dorsey and the group stopped
at a" location that was operated
by a Rastafarian gentleman who
called himself a Colonel.
While shopping for merchan-
dise, the group was treated to co-
conut juice and coconut for maxi-
mizatiop of the experience.
Everyone there was pleased
with the customer service that the
merchants provided.
"Keep in mind that all of this
took place in the mountains," Mr.
Dorsey wrote in hlis entry.
"An individual in the United
States would fail in far better cir-
cumstances than these.
"We would, probably com-
plain more than you could ever
imagine," Mr. Dorsey continued.
"This 'was probably one of,
if not the most, amazing experi-
ences that I have had in my life. I
.am lost for words."
Mr. Dorsey and Mr. Harriet or-
ganized the baptism of the two
children later in that day.
Andrea, a member of First
Hatian Baptist Church, and Tyler,
who attends Mr.;Harriet's church,
were those that were baptized.
"This is something that I will
never forget," Mr. Dorsey said.
"These children are awesome
and I'm so proud of them."
Mr. Harriet believes that the
youth who went gained a sense
of appreciation for what they
have back at home.
"The kids liked the trip a whole
lot," Mr. Harriet said. "They want
to come back next summer."

Clewiston Tigers Trumped by King's Academy


Clewiston traveled to West
Palm Beach on Friday for their
2008 Kickoff Classic against the
Lions of King's Academy and
were beaten 29-8.
The preview contest showed
two clear points: Those being
that the Class 2A Tigers are in a
rebuilding season with a lot to
learn and the Class 2B Lions have
a very good football team.
Throughout the game, the Ti-
gers were extremely weak on of-
fense and unable to mount any
serious drive on the night.
The Tiger defense played hard
at times but was outclassed.
Clewiston managed but 29
rushing yards on 26 attempts.
Senior quarterback Isandro Mar-
quez showed significant improve-
ment on his passing skills from
the previous year, completing 3 of
5 passes for 22 yards. But he was
also sacked 3 times while in a pass
formation due to breakdowns in
pass protection blocking.
King's Academy rolled up
162 yards rushing on 39 carries.
Quarterback Mike Miller hit on 5
of 9 passes for a total of 133 yards,
with two long completions of 45
and 48 yards.
The Tigers' only first half score
came when the Lions were in


punt formation and snapped the
ball through the end zone for a
safety.
The safety was set up after
Tiger Darris Hughes reeled off an
84-yard kickoff return to the Li-
ons' 8-yard line.
But three short rushing at-
tempts and an incomplete pass
turned the ball over to King's
Academy at their 3-yard line.
The Tiger defense held after
giving up one first down and the
punt snapped sailed way over the
punters' head.
Trailing at the intermission
20-2, Clewiston came out and
showed some spark.
Defensively, the Tigers were in
their best form of the night in the
opening second half series by the
Lions.
Senior defensive end Adam
Trevino made several crushing
tackles and linebackers Dillon
Irey and Leonard Newton were
also on the prowl.
King's Academy tried a fourth
down conversion pass and New-
ton intercepted and returned the
ball down to the 4-yard line.
Three plays later, Marquez
rolled out to pass, found no open
targets, pulled the ball down and
scooted around the corner for the


touchdown.
The Tigers went for two points
and the rushing attempt failed.
But, the Lions came back and
drove down to the Tiger one-half
yard stripe before they were held.
The Tigers had two running
attempts that netted only 3 yards
before Marquez was sacked in
the end zone for a safety.
First year Tiger Head Coach
Joe Roth knew prior to the con-
test that this was going to be a
challenging season.
He said, "We've just got so
many kids who have no varsity
experience and some who have
been out of football for two and
three years. We've got to ana-
lyze our mistakes and learn from
them."
The Tigers travel to Plantation
on Friday for a 7:30 p.m. non-
district contest with American
Heritage, a perennial Class 2A
powerhouse under Coach Byron
Walker.

Blue Devils suffer heartbreaking defeat


Pahokee loses 27-
point fourth quarter
lead in 48-47 loss

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MIAMI "We blowed it man,
we blowed it man," cried Jac-
quan Bentley, a Pahokee Blue
Devils lineman.
Many players were inconsol-
able after losing 48-47 to Olive
Branch, Miss. in the Miami Sports
kickoff classic game, presented
by Nike Football.,
The game was played on.Sat-
urday, Aug. 30.
It was devastating enough that
Pahokee blew a 27-point lead in
the fourth quarter to a mighty Ol-
ive Branch team.
But with 19.7 seconds left in
the game, it appeared that the
Blue Devils took the lead back, en
route to a-victory.
On a third-and-inches play
from the Olive Branch 31 yard
line, Nu'Keese Richardson threw
an open pass to De'Joshua John-
son in the end zone.
When he caught the ball, it
looked like, according to this
reporter's picture, that he was
in-bounds after making the end
zone grab.
But referees disagreed, ruling
it an incomplete pass as they said
it was out of bounds.
"That call was unfair because-
the middle judge made the call
and didn't even ask the side judge
about the touchdown catch,"
Johnson explained after the
game.
Johnson, who would have had
87 yards on three receptions and
two touchdowns, finished with
two receptions for 56 yards and a
touchdown.
"I did that so I could have both
feet in the end zone," the junior
wide receiver continued. "And I
think it's unfair that the play cost
us the game."
Willie Hickman, a senior de-
fensive back, agreed.
"I feel that the refs took this
game away, from us," Hickman
said after the game.
According to high school rules,
a player only has to have one foot
in-bounds in order for it to be
ruled a catch:.
But that was only part of the
fourth quarter dramatics lhaLhap-,,
pened during the mild contest.
After Curtis Daley's 1hard
rushing touchdown with 40 sec-
onds left in the third quarter, it
seemed that Olive Branch was
ready to mail it in after trailing 47-
20.
But in little more than 10 min-
utes in the final quarter, Olive
Branch scored four touchdowns,
with most of the drives beginning
in Pahokee territory.
Olive Branch quarterback,
Clint Wilson scored two rushing
touchdowns in the fourth (three
overall), highlighted by a 15-yard

play fake that the entire Blue Dev-
ils defense bit on.'
It had appeared that Wilson
was going to either make a pass
attempt or hand it off to some-
one else, but he hid the ball in his
possession as he raced to the end
zone virtually untouched.
That score came with 1:46 left
in the game, giving Olive Branch
its first lead since the second
quarter.
"It was just a great comeback,
it says a lot about our kids," said
Scott Samsel, the Conquistadors
head coach. "Some breaks went
our way in the fourth quarter and
we made the most of it.
"Pahokee's a great football
team and they have a lot of ath-
letes," Samsel continued. "A lot of
good football is played in Missis-
Ssippi and in the country." .
Olive Branch had 312 total
yards against. Pahokee's vaunted
defense, many of which came in
the fourth quarter.
Blaze Thompson, Pahokee's
head coach, -blamed himself for
the decision to rest all the starters
in the middle of the third quarter.


soon," Thompson said. "Conven-
tional wisdom says if you're up by
27 points, you take your starters
out and put in the second team.
"You have to take into con-
sideration that the game was
crawling in the fourth quarter,"
the Pahokee head coach contin-
ued. "The clock was moving at a
snail's pace."'
After looking at the picture of
Johnson's apparent game-win-
ning touchdown, Thompson said
that the call was questionable,
but decided not to make any ex-
cuses for the.loss.,
"We just subbed in our players
too soon," Thompson said.
Richardson, who was Paho-
kee's starting quarterback in the
exhibition game, finished 9-for-17
with one touchdown and one ip-
terception. -
He also had 16 carries for 132
yards and two touchdowns.
Vincent Smith, Pahokee's
starting running back, scored two
touchdowns early in the game as
he finished with 17 carries for 135
yards..
Jarvis Bvrd. who bobbled an

Pahokee's Vincent Smith, who committed to Michigan the
day before the Aug. 30 kickoff classic against Olive Branch
(Miss.), runs for 57 yards on this play early in the game.

first scoring drive of the game,
had a very respectable defensive
effort with a blocked punt and a
fumble recovery.
The nation saw the birth of
two emerging stars in Daley and
defensive back Merril Noel.
Daley rushed for two third
quarter touchdowns, while Noel
recovered an Olive Branch fum-
ble in the first half.


In the end, however, Olive
Branch was just happy they
walked away with a win, securing
a game trophy.
"We appreciate Nike and the
Miami Sports Commission for
having us here at Traz Powell Sta-
dium," Samsel said. "We had a
great weekend."
Pahokee, who hadn't lost a
game since the '2005 Class 2B


state championship, begins their
regular season tomorrow night
on the road against Palm Beach
Gardens.
The 28-game winning streak
is still intact because the kickoff
classic doesn't have any bearing
on a team's won-loss record.

son clarified to the audience his
stance on the budget situation.
"During the. budget process,
we have to tighten the belt,"
Mayor Wilson told the audience.
"Keep in mind, we're not com-
fortable cutting anyone.
"It's not personal," he contin-
ued. "It's just that we have to bal-
ance the budget."
Sherri Delaney, a former Belle
Glade commissioner, compared
the budget situation to a teacher
being unfunded, with a secretary
teaching a class at school.'
"Unfunding a director's po-
sition is asinine," Ms. Delaney
angrily told the commissioners.
"You can't expect people who
don't have the training to take on
the job.
"Unfunding a position does
not make good business sense,"
Ms. Delaney continued.
"You have to have someone

sophomore did so.
Of the lowest 25 percent of
ninth and 10th graders,, the ad-
equate progress rate was report-
edly at 43 and 33. percent, respec-
tively.
When combining all the stu-
dents who took the FCAT in read-
ing, 18. percent passed the. exam
this year, up four percentage
points from 2007 (14 percent) -
Only 39 percent of all students
tested at Glades Central reported-
ly made learning gains in reading,
down five percentage points from
last year (44 percent).
Adequate progress of the low-
est 25 percent in the school took a
big hit as it was revealed that only
38 percent of the group in ques-
Stion met the requirements. That is
a 12 percent drop from 2007 (50
percent).
Of all juniors ,and seniors re-
taking- the FCAT in reading, 43
percent of that group met the re-
quirements necessary to graduate
,from high school, a whopping 18
percent improvement from last
year (25 percent).

on top that knows what they're
doing, think about the fact that
the position needs to be there,"
Mary Kendall, the city's vice-
mayor, made it a point to cor-
rect some of Ms. Delaney's com-
ments.
"The analogy is inaccurate and
not true," Vice-Mayor Kendall told
Ms. Delaney.
"The proper analogy would
be .that principals, assistant prin-
cipals and support staff would be
unfunded, not the teachers."
Michael Martin, a Belle Glade
commissioner, agreed with the
proposed changes to the bud-
get, saying that the city needs to
be 'business-minded' in this pro-
cess.
"There need to be a cap on
what the city manager (position)
can pay, it's ridiculous," Commis-
sioner Martin said.
Ms. Tomeu is also serving as
the city's purchasing manager,
which will be unfunded in the up-
coming budget hs well.
Combined with the two jobs
that Ms. Tomeu currently works


erably at the site affected by Fay,
"We're looking at every area
of assistance right now," Mayor
Whitaker said.
On that same day, officials
from the county's utilities and

ment, such as computers and
printers.

us since the disaster at city hall,"


a percentage point increase from
2007 (15 percent).
The math and writing portions
of the FCAT were much more en-
couraging, as the passing rate of
all students tested were at 55 and
86 percent, respectively.
That's an improvement from
last year, when 49 and 81 percent
of all students passed ri math and
writing, respectively.
It must be noted that only 10 Oth
graders take the FCAT in writing.
In math, 73 percent of all stu-
dents reportedly made learning
gains, an eight percent improve-
ment from 2007 (65 percent).
According to the -state, the
lowest 25 percent of all students
tested in math met adequate
progress for the second year in a
row, with 65 percent passing. It's
a two percent improvement from
last year (63 percent).
'With 57 percent of all juniors
and seniors reportedly meeting
the graduation requirements after
retaking the FCAT, it's a six per-
cent improvement from 2007 (51
percent).
According to the state, 58 and
52 percent of freshmen and soph-
omores passed the FCAT in math
this year, while 78 and 68 percent
of those same two grades made
learning gains in the aformen-
tioned subject.
Of the lowest 25 percent of all
ninth and 10th graders in math, 66
and 63 percent reportedly made
adequate progress, respectively.


in the city, the purchasing man-
ager position ($54,749 per year)
plus her assistant manager post is
worth a total of $125,053.
"$20,000 is a drop in the buck-
et for the budget, but for Tomeu,
it's a lot of money," Commission-
er Miller said.
According to Gwen Asia-
Holley, a Belle Glade city com-
missioner, there was neither an
assistant manager or deputy city
manager position available in the
city.
The deputy city manager's
salary, if approved, would be
$120,533 per year.
"Both positions bring a lot to
the table that you can't just bring
in from the streets," said Bill Un-
derwood, the city manager.
"They're vital to the improve-
ment of the lives of the citizens of
Belle Glade, that's my position."
Mayor Wilson provided Mr.
Underwood with a tough choice
that he may have to make.
"Which one is-more important
to you?" Mayor Wilson asked Mr.
Underwood. "One of them's got

"We appreciate the county for ev-
erything they've done for us."
During the Glades Political
Forum, which was held later
that evening in Belle Glade, U.S.
Representative Alcee Hastings
addressed the- conditions of Pa-'
hokee, while chastising Presi-
dent GeorgeW. Bush during his
speech.
"Because Pahokee has been
declared a disaster, now the


When tallying, up the final'
score, Glades Central scored 175
.points in the FCAT passing section
(up from 159 last year', while 112
points were counted for when
factoring in learning gains (an im-
provement from 109 last year).
The distinctive factor 'that
perhaps played a role. in Glades
Central's failing grade was \\hen
it scored 103 points regarding the
lowest 25 percent of students, a
10 point drop from last year (113
points),
. No bonus points were report-
edly awarded regarding'the FCAT
retake passing rate, even though
the gains in that area were evi-
dent.
All juniors and seniors must
achieve a passing rate of at least
50 .percent in that category to re-
ceive that distinction, according
to FLDOE.
To earn a D grade, a school
must score between 395 and 434
points. A C rating means that a
school scored. anywhere from

Some adjustments for
.improvement
According to Dr. Coleman,
there is no" eighth period at the
school this year. All students will
be dismissed at 2:50 p.m., exactly
55 minutes earlier than last year,


to go."
Commissioner Asia-Holley
made it a point to tell the audi-
ence that the city is not looking at
individuals, just the figures.
"Years ago, we were paying
$70,000 for the city manager, but
now we're paying. more than
$140,000 for the same position,"
Commissioner Asia-Holley said.
Other proposed changes to
balance the budget included that
announcement, that the. water
rates will not increase, much to
the delight of many citizens in the
city.
"I'm a strong believer of not in-
creasing the water rate and I still
stand on that," Mayor Wilson told
the audience, regarding the pro-
posed decision.
"Citizens can ill afford to pay
any.higher rates.
"We have the highest water
rates in the state right now," the
mayor claimed. "We need to
think outside the box."
Also, it was revealed that no
changes will be made to the city's
insurance rates.


federal government can come
in," Representative, Hastings ad-
dressed to those at the political
forum. "What we need is an im-
mediate fusion of funding for Pa-
,hokee."
Working overtime
For the past several days since
Fay touched down in the area,
the city distriuted approximately
$200,000 in overtime pay for its,


when they were let out of school
at 3:45 p.m.
The eighth period, which was
discontinued by the county's
school district, focused on stu-
dents receiving extra tutorials in
order to pass exams.
It also keyed in on teachers re-
ceiving extra training to be better
prepared for the FCAT exams.
"I think the extended day had
some benefits for us," Dr. Cole-
man said. "We improved in most
of our academic areas, which fac-
tored into our school grade."
Glades Central was one of
eight Palm Beach County schools
to have the added period. Now,
it's back to seven periods like two
years ago.
The pilot program, which
lasted for just one year, was oper-
ated by the county's educational
restructuring 'and. development
program.
Two areas of concern that staff
are putting extra focus on for the,
2008-2009 school year are in read-
ing and science, according to Dr.
Coleman.
"For us, unlike any other school
in the state, all of our student body.
needs to be in reading," Dr. Cole-
man said. "I'm putting everyone
in reading, whether they passed,
the FCAT or not."
An important piece of Glades,
Central's plan to improve its
school rating will be on build-:
ing student stamina during silent
reading.


Mr. Underwood told Commis-
sioner Martin that negotiations for
health insurance will begin in ei-
ther October or November.
If the proposed budget is ap-
proved, then insurance will cost
the city $1,995,487, which figures.
to be ah estimated 15 percent
increase from the current fiscal
year.
According to the budget pro-
posal, the increase in insurance
fees will be in effect during the
last six months of the 2008-2009
fiscal year.
The proposed millage rate is
set at 6.430, which is the equiva-
lent to $6.43 per every $1,000 of
taxable value..
In order for that to be ap-
proved,-a 4-to-I vote is needed.
If that ratio of approval is less
than that, then the rolled-back
rate could go into effect for the
upcoming fiscal year, which
would be at 5.8722.
'That's equivalent to $5.8722,
per $1,000 of taxable value.
The city's engineering service
contract, along with an increase


employees as they have been
working long hours to restore op-
erations.
City workers had to use filter
masks on their faces to safely
combat, the pungent smell and
traces of asbestos at the former
city hall building.
Nonetheless, the mayor went
out ol his \xay to compliment
Matthew Brock, the city manager,
and his staff for the x\ay they re-
sponded in the disaster. :


Right now, according to Dr.
Coleman, many ol the students
are comfortable reading silently
for anywhere between 20 and 30
minutes.
The FCAT reading portion
reportedly requires at least one
hour of silent reading.
"That can be a long .time to sit
down if you're not accustomed to
silent reading for 'that long," Dr.
Coleman said.
In a firm move, the principal
said that unlike last fall, there
will be no football pep rallies and
homecoming activities during the
school day.
She said that very few activities
will occur during the school day
this year. All activities, ,unless it's-
mandatory, will have to happen
outside of school hours.
"Our focus will be on, maxi-
mizing the school day," Dr. Cole-
man said. "The school day will be
sacred."
The truancy package
'This year, execessive school
absences will result in serious dis-
ciplinary action for students. Par-
ents will most likely be adversely
affected as well, according to Dr.
Coleman.
"Parents need to make sure
the student comes to' school on
time everyday, they need to be
here and ready. to work," Dr. Cole-
man said. "No excuses and no
sob stories will be accepted from
the students."


in the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office contract, are set to be
eliminated, .pending approval of
the upcoming budget.
"The bottom line is that we
have to make tough decisions,"
Mayor Wilson said to everyone in
-the budget workshop meeting.
With all of the proposed cuts
set, the city's balanced budget
would be at $26,006,731.
That's a stark contrast to the
initial proposed total budget
in expenditures, which was at
$28,928,425.
The city revenues, prior to the,
changes, were set at $27,773,401,
which amounted to a budget defi'
cit of $1,155,024.
By state law, municipal gov-
ernments must have their budget
balanced for each fiscal year. ,
The final decision for the 2008-?
2009 fiscal year budget is slated to
be made during the Sept.15 com-
mission meeting, city officials
said.

"The city employees have'
been excellent in our time of cri-
sis," Mayor Whitaker said.
Others looked toward the fu-'
ture.
"If it continues to rain, then
city hall will end up-demolishing:
itself," Ms. Diaz said. "But I have'
to say that change is good and
we'll come out- better than we'
were before, I truly believe it." ,

Students who are absent more,
than three times per semesterwill,
be on a truancy package, which'
will be forwarded to the school
district and the state attorney's:
office. :
According to Dr. Coleman,'
two latenesses will equal one ab-
sence.
Every Thursday, teachers,
and administrators will be going
through a list of all the absences
recorded over the course of the
week.
If anyone receives one or two,
absences, a phone call will be'
made to the parents.
The consequences for. ex-
ecessive absences are as fol-
lows:
The student and his her
parents, can lose their
driver's license
Government checks can
be placed on hold for par-
ents that recei\ e them
The student in question
can be either withdrawn
from Glades Central or
transferred to an alterna-
tive school
The truancy package will go
into effect immediately after the
absence threshold is reached, ac-
cording to Dr. Coleman.
The first semester, which be-
gan on August 18, ends in De-
cember, while e the second semes-
ter runs from January to June.
