Millage rate
. announced during
Sept. 15 meeting

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE With little
controversy this time around,.
the city's budget for the upcom-
ing fiscal year was approved on
Monday night.
The vote was 4-1, with Com-
missioner Shelly Miller opposing
the action.
During the final budget work-


shop meeting, which lasted for
about a hour, Commissioner
Miller, in a last ditch effort, made
a motion to maintain the public
works director for a minimum of
three months.
According to Mark Kutney, the
acting city manager, Larry Peters
has been working on such proj-
ects that include the proposed
youth empoc%\erment center and
the boating locks at Torry Island,
to name just two.
Mr. Peters, who is also a certi-
fied engineer, would have made
$109,200 for the 2008-2009 fis-
cal year had his position been


funded.
Unfortunately, Commissioner
Miller's motion to keep Mr. Pe-
ters on board failed by a 3-2 ma-
jority vote.
"It was the right thing ,for the
city to retain the public works di-
rector, who was also working as
a certified .engineer,' Commis-
sioner Miller said.
"Now, we gotta hire an engi-
neer for the same salary and we
have no public works director.
"It's not in the best interest
of trying to balance the budget,"
she continued. "Mr. Peters, you
were truly an asset."

Boy accused of burglary, molestation


Suspect reportedly
broke into resi-
dence, threatened
four girls

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE A 14-year-
old boy was arrested on Sept.
17 in connection with molest-
ing an 18-year-old girl.
According to an arrest re-
port, the suspect fondled the
victim's after she and three
other females were taking a
shower.
Deputies from the Palm


Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO) responded to the inci-
dent, which took place on Sept.
8 at the residence of 691 S.W
'6th St.
Investigators spoke with
four females, who all said in
separate sworn statements that
while in the shower, the sus-
pect reportedly peeked through
the bathroom window.
The affidavit said that one of
the females slammed the win-
dow on the suspect's hands
before he came into the house
through the front door.
The suspect knocked down
the bathroom door Where
the females were showering,
pulled the shower curtain and


grabbed the victim, according
to the arrest report.
The victim told detectives
that she did not want the sus-
pect touching her, even when
he allegedly molested her.
All four of the females re-
portedly ran out to a neighbor's
residence, this after they got
out the shower and put their
clothes on.
According to the affidavit, as
the females were running out
the house, the suspect said that
he would shoot them if they
called the police..
In sworn statements, all four
girls stated that they heard gun-
,See Molest Page 20.


The public works director,
whose last day with the city will
be on Sept. 30, thanked Com-
missioner Miller for the support.
"I'm thankful for the oppor-
tunity to work here," Mr. Peters
said.
. According to Mr. Kutney, it
would have cost the city $32,270
for the next three months to re-;
tain the position.
"I think the move is gonna
help us in this tight budget year,"
said Vice-Mayor Mayor Kendall:.
Other than the elimination
of the public works director, the
finance director, the assistant


finance director and the pur-
chasing manager positions have
been frozen, at least temporarily,
in efforts to keep the city's costs
down.
"We're going to have to do
more things from an individual
basis," Mr. Kutney said, regard-
ing the work of all the city's em
ployees. "We're all committed to
doing whatwe're here to do."
Mayor Steve Wilson has advbo-
cated the possibility of a Christ-
mas bonus for all employees, as
he recognized the work that the

Woman arrested


in church robbery


A total of $2,850 in
checks reportedly
stolen and cashed

By Naji Tobias
The Sun :
SOUTH BAY. A 23-year-old
Latoya Wright was arrested on
Sept. 15, facing multiple charg-
es of allegedly stealing checks
from a church.
According to a probable
cause affidavit from the sher-
iff's office, the suspect robbed
funds from the First Holiness
Church of Living God, Inc. on
the weekend of July 25.
Robert Mann, a 69-year-
old deacon from the 0South.
Bay church, reportedly told
the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office on Aug. 13 that the
checks in question were stolen


from the general account and
building fund.
They had been signed in
advance by Deacon Mann,
along with Jimmie Wrisper, a
53-year-old fellow deacon who
was reportedly on vacation at
the time.
The arrest report said that
the church does banking with
the Bank of Belle Glade, where
the stolen checks were cashed
at on a-few occasions.
But before the Bank of Belle
Glade would be victimized, the
suspect reportedly cashed a
check for. $400 at the Latin Gro-
cery Store in Belle Glade.
The transaction reportedly
took place on July 26 at about
2 p.m.
The store owner, Jon Akla-
rez, found out from the Bank

SOUTH BAY "It's going to
be gorgeous," said Lomax Har-
relle, South Bay's city manager.
He's referring to the recon-
struction of U.S. Highway 27,
which stretches from South Bay
to the Hendry County Line.
According to the Florida
Department of Transportation


(FDOT), the major highway is
set to be resurfaced.
That includes new landscap-
ing, which includes shrubbery
and royal palm trees on the me-
dians in South Bay and a new

ments, an irrigation system is

Fowler urges

Amendment 4

support
Jim Fowler, former host of the
television series "Mutual of Oma-
ha's Wild Kingdom ," spoke at
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
meeting Wednesday in support of
proposed Constitutional Amend-
ment 4.
During the FWC's meeting in
Jacksonville, Fowler represented
a coalition of about 70 conser-
vation and outdoor recreation
groups, pushing for passage of
the amendment that would pro-
vide incentives for landowners
who conserve their property for
wildlife habitat.
Earlier this week, Fowler
teamed up with the Florida Wild-
life Federation, the Nature Conser-
vancy, Audubon of Florida and the
Florida Chamber of Commerce at
a'press conference in Tallahassee
to draw attention to the proposed
amendment and urge support for
it among voters.
The FWC's seven-member
board of Commissioners unani-
mously passed a resolution in-
June, expressing support for the
proposed amendment.
The amrrendment, to appear
on the general election ballot in
November, would encourage
landowners to set aside land for
conservation easements or prac-
tice proactive conservation to
benefit all Florida wildlife, includ-
ing the panther and black bear. If
60 percent of voters approve the
amendment, it will become part
of the Florida State Constitution.
The resolution notes that Flor-
ida 's population may double to
36 million people within the next
50 years. It says development will
claim millions of acres of wilder-
ness and erode the state's rich
legacy of outdoor recreation if of-
ficials fail to address growth pro-
jections with wise and creative
solutions.

Many seniors do not file tax re-

However, the economic stimulus
law passed in February.ontains a
,special provision allowing Social
Security recipients to count those

"Some seniors may not have
realized that they are eligible for a

to do is file a basic tax return," Mr.
Beach said. "This money is there

God and Christian Unity


By Jackie Miller
In Jesus' prayer in John 17, he
prays that all those who believe
on Him would be "one," and
that the same unity that exists be-
tween Him and the Father would
exist between those who believe
in Him (John 17:20-21).
He further said that the basis
for unity would be "their (the
Apostle's) word."
When will we quit pretend-
ing that there is unity among
those who believe in Christ and
do something about the religious
mess that man-made doctrines,
names, etc., have caused?
The Apostle Paul admonished
in I Corinthians 1:10-13 that "we
all speak the same thing and
there be no divisions among us,


and that we be joined together in
the same mind and judgment."
This does not exist among
those who believe in Christ!
The Restoration Leaders of the
early 19th century took the follow-
ing position: "No book but the Bi-
ble," that meant they would "Call
Bible things by Bible names" and
"Do Bible things in Bible ways."
Because the mind of God and
the wisdom of God were given
to man in the word of God, they
would "Speak where the scrip-
tures speak and be silent where
the scriptures were silent."
They did not need the creeds,
of man that divided, but would
have "No creed but Christ" and
would be "Christians only."
They would be "United in


matters of faith," but would allow
"Liberty in matters of opinion."
Their attitude would be that
of Christ, and show love in all
things.
Did those early Restoration
Leaders have it correct?
Yes, when they followed scrip-
ture, and no, when they allowed
their own reasoning to over rank
the Word of God.
It did not take long for people
to stray from what those pioneers
discovered and passed on.
Each generation 'must think
for itself but the basis of thought,
whether in the Word or from the
mind of man, will decide how
that generation goes.
. Which lesson of history will it
learn: obedience brings blessing


or disobedience brings disaster?
The idea of history repeat-
ing itself is usually spoken of in
the negative, but history (man)
doesn't always have to take the
wrong road.
We want the generations to
follow the generation that en-
joyed the blessings of God and
repeat that history.
But too often many times the
generations that follow begin do-
ing what is right in their own eyes
and start reaping the disaster, of-
ten because they have not been
taught that there is a better way.
Next week in my column I will
give your the Christian Platform
for Unity straight from the Word
of God.
Don't miss it!


Open my eyes, that I may see


By Pastor John Hicks
*First United Methodist Church
According to those whose job
it is to know such things, it only
takes three weeks to become
blind to the presence of stationary
objects in our everyday worlds.
Hang a new picture on the
wall, and we are likely to notice
it for about 21 days.-:After that it
tends to become just part of the
scenery.
Maybe that's why I've stopped
noticing the papers piling by my
bed or the pile of dirty clothes
that has found a semi-permanent
home at the end of the closet!
Housecleaning, like many oth-
er aspects of our lives, requires a
new set of "eyes," eyes like my
wife's that are objective enough
to see our surroundings with a
discerning perspective and not as
I have.become used to them. .
In a like manner, if we are not
careful, we can become so used
to situational barriers around us
that we don't recognize them as
something out of the ordinary.
Affluent Americans are used
to being separated from lower in-
come families.
Blue-collar workers are used


to a life apart from white-collar
management.
For generations the children in
American homes of every color
have tended to experience those
of other backgrounds or nation-
alities through television sitcom
stereotyping, stand-up comedy,
and gossip magazine reports on
the private lives of entertainment
and sports stars. .
Anglos are used to their
worlds not intersecting those of
African-Americans or Hispanics
or Asians.
We may integrate with each
other through work and other
contacts, but there are still walls
and barriers around us if we have
eyes to see them.
We can even be go used to how
we do things that we miss seeing
some of the barriers that history
has erected with our churches.
Protestants are used to being
separated from Catholics.
Pentecostal church members
rarely cross paths with .those in
more Orthodox congregations.
The 1996 Promise Keepers
gathering of 42,000 pastors in,
Atlanta represented an assembly'
of many different church groups


and denominational affiliations.
Author and pastor Max Luca-
do stood at the speaker's podium
arid made a simple request.
"On the count of three, would
you please shout out loud the
name of the group or tradition
or church body of which you are
currently a member? One, two,
three..."
What resulted was a confusing
mass of sound as everyone shout-
ed out their different churches.
Lucado followed with a sec-
ond request.
"On the count of, three," he
said, "Would you please shout
the name to whom you have
trusted your heart, your soul, your
ministry, and your entire spiritual
future? One, two, three ..."
And there rose in one accord a
unified sound that filled the entire
dome: "Jesus!"
In the moment that followed
there was a sudden silence -- as
if the leaders .of God's people
were suddenly struck dumb by
the realization that perhaps' they
have more in common than first
assumed.
Perhaps the walls can fall down
after all. For around that name,


the name of the One who dares
to share His grace with those on
both sides of our most unyielding
barriers and walls, we have more
in common than we might ever
have thought possible.
In Christ alone, by His immea-
surable grace, there is power to
turn dividing walls into dust.
It is the promise of God that
if I am willing, God will give me
eyes to see the world from the-
perspective of heaven.
. God will give me eyes to see
that there are dividing walls in my
life, and that these walls are not
God's creation.
Furthermore, by grace I am
called to be a disciple of the one
who specializes in the elimination
of barriers, who delights in tear-
ing down the walls that separate
people from each other.
Christ claims lordship over ev-
erybody, including those on my
side of the fence and those on the
other side.
His grace is available to every-
body -- even before our spiritual
blinders have been removed and
we ourselves can see the foolish-
ness of our separation.

What's in a name? More than an identity


+ By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Many, many of the Biblical
names convey something about
the destiny of a person or some-
thing special about the place so
named.
Jesus is to be called "Emman-
uel" which means "God with us
(Matthew 1:23)."
Likewise "Bethlehem" is liter-
ally "the house of bread" where
Jesus, the Bread of Life, was to be
born.
My own name, being named
after my father, and also one of
the earliest of the prophets whose
name means "in God's name."
We could go on and on; names
mean something.
I belong to a tradition where
Churches are given names and
when going to a new Church,
I've always asked "Why was the
Church given the name that it
has?"
Usually, the answer is not
forthcoming, so I try to do some
homework and find .out. I've
found out that generally it is cho-
sen to say something about the
place where the Church is plant-
ed and about the people who will
worship there, about the ministry
of the people, and the land where

they live.
The chapel where I went to.
college was called the "Chapel of
the Venerable Bede."
It was served by a chaplain
who provided services to -.ludents
and faculty alike. "-_ ,
SWhen the chapel was being
built, a number of the original
faithful gathered and were chal-'
lenged to give it a name.
Anr English Professor sug-
gested that it be named'after that
scholar and minister, a person
who gave his life to the service
of the Church and was known
for his scholarly writings; keeping
much of our learning about the
Middle Ages alive for those who
would 'follow.'
It was an appropriate name,
for a college chapel; remember-
ing someone who combined
faith and scholarship, a seventh
century historian who served to
keep knowledge alive during a
dark period in human history.
The very name of the chapel
reflected the key values that were
shared and taught there, in the
community of the university.
This week I begin my ninth'
year at Saint Martin's Church
(eleven, if you count 1976 and
.1977,when I was here before).
When I. came, I was also inter-
ested in what "Saint Martin" rep-


resented to the founders .of our
congregation; who he was and
what he did.
. -.I learned that he was some-
one who had come from another
place (Hungary). and was the son
of a Roman military officer. ,
In his day, the career of his.
father \vould become his career,
and he too served in the Roman
Legions, finding himself in East-
ern France around Tours.
One cold night, a beggar was
about to freeze and Martin cut his
officer's cloak in two to share and
keep-the man from freezing. His
generosity let a stranger live.
Little by little he came to a de-
cision to become a Christian and
he spent the rest of his life in this
farm region, sharing, ministering,
working'among people deeply at-
tached to the soil.
He was not known for his
fancy dress and stood his ground
for what he believed in a heathen
and sometimes hostile world.
He was not put off by "rough
and tumble" people but worked
as a peacemaker among the
many that needed reconciliation
with God and others.
Somewhere in the history of
the Church I serve, the found-
ers thought he would be a good
person to be an example, a good
model and a "living mission state-


ment, and I agree.
Every now and again, we for-
get, our "mission statements" or
"visions for the future" and get
overly preoccupied with the prob-
lems of the day. .
I look at Saint Martin's coat of
arms that hang over the door of
the entrance to our sanctuary; a
cape cut in two with an officer's,
sword between the halves.
It stands as a reminder of
someone who served the peo-
ple of the land, who was gener-
ous, who did not have "airs" and
worked to bring God's word and
make life better.
Biblical narpes and saint's
names often carry with them
meanings that we sometimes for-
get; something that tells about the
character of a people whom God
has called.
Many of the places in the Bible
are likewise named with a name
that has a special meaning reflect-
ing what has taken place there.
From earliest times, it -has been,
more than just a name; it has
been a guide, a calling, a mission
statement.
It's a great tradition. I'm proud
to share in it.

once lived in Florida were hunted
by humans. Fossil bones from dif-
ferent extinct species show cut
marks indicating the animals were
hunted and eaten by humans.
However, many other animals
they hunted still survive today, so
what happened? Human hunters
may have hunted one particular
species to extinction, which was
very important in the food chain
for other animals. The extinction
of one species could have started
a domino effect.
Between 11,500 to 18,000
years ago, the climate in North
America changed rapidly. Tem-
peratures were warming, rainfall
patterns were changing and gla-
ciers were melting.
Plants and animals were di-
rectly affected by these changes
in their environment. Climate and
environmental changes may have
caused extinction by eliminating
food sources, disrupting repro-
duction, and exposing animals
to climate changes they couldn't
adapt to.
Some scientists believe hu-
man migration into North Amer-
ica, 14,000 years a'go, brought'
new diseases. These diseases
could have passed from humans
to the susceptible native animals


Truly defining moment



for our society today


By Brian Hamrick, Pastor
First Baptist Church, Clewiston
The buzz in Clewiston right
now seems to be focused onthe
U.S. Sugar sale, the Presidential
election, and local elections.
Of course, all of those things
are important and have significant
implications for each of us.
But I'm noticing something
has been left out of our conversa-
tions that bears at least as much
significance, if not more- perhaps
because some are unaware of
this critical matter.
On Nov. 4, we will be asked
at the polls to amend our state
constitution to define marriage
as a one woman-one man rela-
tionship. Sixty percent support is
required for the amendment to
pass.
Marriage was the very first in-
stitution established by God, and
it is so sacred that it is meant to
picture the relationship between
Christ and His church.
If this foundational building
block is further eroded from soci-
ety, chaos will follow.
I'm not just talking about gay


"marriage"- I'm talking about all
the organizations lining up be-.
hind them -- polygamists, NAM-
BLA (an organization promoting
sexual relations between adults
and children), and all other kinds
of sexual deviance, that will even-
tually gain social acceptance and
legality if we do not act now.
I am sorry to be so explicit, but
this is reality, friends.,
We don't want our children
and grandchildren growing up in
a world even more abounding in
sin and lawlessness-.'
We don't need the lines be-
tween good, and evil, right and
wrong even more blurred in our
culture.
This decision will have vast, far.
reaching implications that could
devastate our, nation's future in
short time.
So what practically do you
need to do?
1) Make sure you are regis-
tered to vote. The deadline is Oct.
6. If you're not sure, find out to-
day! Time is running.short.
2) Make sure you encourage
your friends to register (if neces-


sary) and to vote.
3) Make sure you vote early, or,
on Election Day.
Let there be no reason your
ballot is not cast for this historic
decision. Don't assume it will
pass without your vote!
In the 1930s, British anthropol-
ogist J.D. Unwin studied 86 cul-
tures that stretched across 5,000
years. He found, without excep-
tion, when they restricted, sex to
marriage, they thrived.
Strong families headed by
faithful spouses made for bold,
prosperous societies. But not one
culture survived more than three
generations after turning sexually
permissive.
Noted Harvard sociologist
Pitirim Sorokin found no culture
surviving once it ceased to sup-
port marriage and monogamy.
None.
Redefining marriage to be
whatever people want it to be is
no form of progress. It is a recipe
for disaster!
Join with me in maintaining
a key ingredient to a prosperous,
healthy society.

in North America. These diseases
may have been lethal enough to
wipe out the native animals.
Why so many prehistoric ani-
mals went extinct at one time will
probably remain a mystery. It is
a question that we as' humans
should ask ourselves when pon-
dering the future of mankind. To-
day humans, like the extinct pre-
historic animals, must deal with
diseases and global environmen-
tal changes, but we have added
another element War ...
What tribes do you think the
nomadic hunters living in Florida
belonged to? Maybe they were
Jones, Smith or the "Hatfield and

Letter to the editor


Inland Port
As a not-for-profit community
organizer (some now dare call
that a bad thing,) I've seen my
share of corporations along with
politicians who promise strug-
gling communities wealth by
supporting a particular landfill
or power plant or rock mine or
"gentrified" development. Usual-
ly, the corporation and the politi-
cal -boosters try to frame the issue
pitting those who are concerned
about quality of life issues, envi-
ronmental consequences, and
suitability for that community ver-
sus those who need jobs.
The boosters tout inflated job
figures to earn the community's
support. They make promises.
They gloss over the details. How
much real information vs. rheto-
ric came out of the Port presenta-
tion? I care about the community
analyzing this issue, getting the
facts and deciding what kind of
future it wants.
I will do everything in my pow-
er to protect the Everglades and
educate others about the impor-
tance of this. So this debate isn't
about: "environment vs. jobs."


This isn't about sawgrass vs. hu-
mans, and it isn't about "prog-
ress" vs. "poverty." That's manu-
factured hyperbole.
This is about under-served
lakeside cities that live on the
edge of agricultural land mostly
owned by two large corporations.
On the other side of those sugar
lands, one of the country's largest
wetlands and a U.N. World Heri-
tage site is collapsing because
there is too much phosphorus in
the water coming off of the land
north of it.
That water has to be cleaned
up to a level that scientists say the
Everglades'can handle (10 parts
per billion or less). Scientists also
say the Everglades needs more
land to store water between Lake
0 and the Everglades because
without it some parts of the Ev-
erglades are flooded and other
parts are on fire.
They say that we need more
fresh water flowing into Florida
Bay, at the southern end of the
Peninsula to avert total biological
collapse. Lastly, scientists say we
need to store water in the EAA to
stop the loss of land in the Ever-
glades and the EAA because of


the lack of water to combat sea
level rise.
The Inland Port proposed by
Florida Crystals is the wrong loca-
tion for both the Everglades and
the human population of South
Florida. When I ,say this, 1, in no
way, want to minimize needs
of the Lake residents to have a
healthy economy. I say this be-
cause if the Everglades dies there
will be no economy in South
Florida including the Lake 0 com-
munities.
Also, each site needs to be
looked at individually. Putting a
Delray Beach sized industrial fa-
cility at Okeelanta would be disas-
trous for the Everglades. I hope
that the community and decision
makers are provided all the infor-
mation, whether considering that
location or others.
Many questions need to be
answered. What kind of funding
would be needed to update the
railroad system? Why are Florida
Crystals and Palm Beach County
anxious to move forward on this
in the two months before the U.S.
Sugar deal is finalized?
Are there benefits to the Lake
residents from Florida Crystals


building the facility at Okeelanta?
Would the employees come from
the Lake communities or from Ft.
Lauderdale? What are the types of
jobs involved in a container trans-
fer point? Are the promises from
the Port of Palm Beach exagger-
ated in order to gain support?
Can these numbers be verified
from comparable facilities? Will
the Port of Palm Beach really be
able to handle the bigger ships?
Are there disadvantages to the
Lake 0 communities from this
type of development? Are there
better economic development
directions that might not be com-
patible with this type of- facility?
Who has the most to gain finan-
cially from the facility and how?
I hope everyone gets an op-
portunity to look at some of these
things as this issue evolves, and
please know I do want the best
for everyone involved.
Sincerely,
Jonathan Ullman, South Flori-
da/Everglades Senior Field Repre-

signed to prepare potential lead-
ers to meet the challenges facing
the Glades. Participants explore
critical issues through a series of
seminars and related activities.
Interaction with key decision-
makers, experts, community
leaders, and representatives of
local government assists partici-
pants in better understanding the
forces that impact their business,
community, and daily lives.
The deadline for applications
has been extended; to find out
more go to: http://www.leader-

For information and to register
call Palm Beach County Division

Plan now for
November
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
Nov. 22, and end at Pahokee on
Nov. 30.
That's nine days of walking
from nine to 14 miles a day to
make it all the way around the
lake. There is a little bit of a chal-
lenge to this walk. Hundreds of
people have tried over the years
and (for some reason) only about
20 to 30 percent of the walkers
manage to finish the 9 days.
So plan now and get in shape
for November. For further infor-
mation please call Paul at 561-
963-9906.

Support our troops
The Woman's Club of Belle
Glade will be sending packages
of much needed items to our
military men in Iraq.
If you have a friend or a loved
one serving in Iraq and would
like us to send them a package
of supplies, give us their contact
information in Iraq. '
We want to make' sure our
troops from the Glades are re-
ceiving support from their com-
munity. For more information
please contact Elizabeth Cayson,
Support-Our-Troops Wish List

PBSO Cleanup 2008
Glades Airboat & fuggy Association hosts annual International
Coastal Cleanup. Our club members are very passionate when
it comes to conservation and preserving Lake Okeechobee and
the many Islands within the Hubert Hoover Dike. Thanks to all
the volunteers, your hard efforts have paid off again. After many
hours of diligently working the pristine view that everyone enjoys
while visiting our area has been restored. The Belle Glade Marina,
Boy Scout Park, Tory Island, Tory Island Bridge, Hubert Hoover
Dike, Public Boat Ramps, U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Locks,
and Kramer Island are once again the litter free beautiful recre-
ational areas that everyone can enjoy. You can once more enjoy
the Picnicking, Boating, Fishing, Hiking, Biking, Camping, observ-
ing wildlife and all the breathtaking scenery Lake Okeechobee has
to offer.
We have a lot of tourists visit our area throughout the year. The
lake level and how it impacts the ability to utilize the many re-
sources varies with each seasonal change. We don't consider the
impact on our environment from little things like a plastic cup,.
fishing line, hooks, glass containers and other non biodegradable
products we leave behind.
However, thanks to the International Coastal Cleanup, our out-
door wonderland is clean and liter free once more. The volunteers
participate each year in picking up all the things left behind from
our outdoor adventures. They patrol designated areas and remove
the debris from the vicinity. A special thanks to our sponsors City
OF Belle Glade, Big Lake Snacks, Manny's Meat Market and the
Belle Glade Country Club. Also, a special thanks to 'our local law
enforcement, PBSO, PBSO Explorers and the EagleAcademy..
We appreciate everyone's, support making the International
Coastal Cleanup a great success; we look forward to working with
everyone again next year!

Endangered Bat Species Discovered on SFWMD Land


Florida bonneted
bats found at KICCO
and Kissimmee Riv-
er Public Use Area

The Florida bonneted bat-
one of Florida's largest and rar-
est bat species-was discovered
along the Kissimmee River, far
from its known range, during a
bat survey earlier this year. The
bats were located on South Flor-
ida Water Management District
(SFWMD) lands that are part of
the Kissimmee River restoration
effort.
.The Florida Bat Conservancy,
under contract with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), identified
the bats while gathering data
about bat species occurrence
and population levels in the
southwest region of the state. Us-
ing the survey's results, plans are
being developed to enhance bat
habitat on South Florida's public
lands.
Discovering the presence of
Florida bonneted bats (Eumops
floridanus) in the Kissimmee
region is a major finding, ac-
cording to the Florida Bat Con-
servancy. The nearest previously
known location is more than 50
miles to the southwest in the
Babcock-Webb Wildlife Manage-
ment Area, which is owned and
managed by the FWC. In the bat

Company (KICCO) properties.
The Florida bonneted bat is
currently listed as an endangered
species by the FWC. It is native
only to South Florida. The bat is
distinguished by its large size-.
its body ranges inf length from 4.9
to 6.5 inches, with a wingspan of
almost 20 inches-and unusual-
ly large broad ears that slant for-
ward over the eyes. The bonnet-
ed bat normally roosts in palm
fronds, tree cavities and build-
ings, and forages for insects high
in the air. Bonneted bats do not
eat mosquitoes, a food source
for many other bat species. In-
stead, they feast on moths, June
bugs and larger insects. Each bat
eats about its weight in food ev-


ery night.
To provide roosting habitat for
the bonneted bat and other bat
species, the SFWMD, in partner-
ship with the FWC and the Flori- .
da Bat Conservancy, will be con-
structing a large community "bat
house" along the Kissimmee Riv-.
er near its Riverwoods Field lab.
The agencies will also construct
smaller single-chambered bat
houses, which the bonneted bats
prefer, at KICCO and at other se-
lected locations where bonneted
bats have been identified.
The District is committed to.
protecting and preserving South
Florida's environment and its
wildlife by working closely with
other agencies to manage lands
.that preserve natural habitat and
foraging areas and by construct-
ing additional habitats when
necessary.

Denial letter may not rule out disaster assistance


If you have applied for disaster
assistance from the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency and
receive a letter saying your initial
request for help has been denied,
it may mean your application was
incomplete or incorrect.
One of the most common rea-
sons for denial concerns insur-
ance. FEMA must deny aid until an
insurance settlement is reached
because assistance programs are
not intended to duplicate insur-
ance compensation or cover de-
ductibles for disaster-related loss
or damage.
But if the insurance settlement
does not cover all of your disas-
ter-related losses, you should ask
FEMA-to review your application
-+- to see if you are eligible for some
form of assistance. Call the FEMA
help-line at 800-621-FEMA (3362)
or the TTY line at 800-462-7585
for the deaf, hard of hearing or


speech impaired. The helpline
is open from 7 a.m. to midnight
daily until further notice.
Other reasons FEMA might
send a denial letter could be:
*An unreturned disaster loan
application from the U.S. Small
Business Administration;
No record of the damaged
property as your primary resi-
dence at the time of the disaster;
No acceptable evidence of
identity, documentation of disas-
tet damage, or proof of owner-
ship of the damaged property; or
*A missing signature.
SBA disaster loans up to
$200,000 are available to home-
owners to repair or replace dam-
aged.or destroyed real estate Ho-
meowners and renters are eligible
for up to $40,000 to repair or re-
place damaged or destroyed per-
sonal property. The SBA can also
lend additional funds to help with.


the cost of making improvements
that protect, prevent or minimize
the same type of disaster damage
from 'occurring in the future.
Other programs that may still
provide you with some form of
* assistance are Disaster Unem-
ployment Assistance, legal and
tax assistance, and voluntary,
agency assistance.
FEMA coordinates the federal
government's role in preparing
for, preventing, mitigating the ef-
fects of, responding to, and recov-
ering from all domestic disasters,
whether natural or man-made,
including acts of terror.
Disaster recovery assistance
is available without regard to
race, color,;, religion.: nationality,-
sex, age, disability, English profi-
ciency or economic status. If you
or someone you know has been
discriminated against, call FEMA
toll-free at 800-621-FEMA (3362).


For TTY call 800-462-7585.
SBA's disaster loans are the pri-
mary form' of federal assistance
-for non-farm, private sector di-
saster losses. Disaster loans from
SBA helps homeowners, renters,
businesses of all sizes and non-
profit organizations fund repair
and replacement of disaster dam-
aged real and personal property.
These disaster loans cover unin-
sured and uncompensated losses
and do not duplicate benefits of
other agencies or organizations.

grams, applicants may call 800-

Farm Bureau urges Congress into action on energy


GAINESVILLE-Now is the time
for Congress to pass comprehen-
sive energy legislation that will
encourage creation of a more di-
verse domestic energy supply. As
Congress returned to Washington
last' week, Florida Farm Bureau
Federation was pressing for a plan
that will address all aspects of the
nation's energy needs.
"Farmers and ranchers in Flor-
ida and consumers across the na-
tion are being beaten up financially
by high energy costs," said Florida
Farm Bureau President John L.
Hoblick. "Row crop producers are
harvesting, the citrus industry is
preparing to pick and our vegeta-
ble producers are looking toward
the winter growing season. It is a
critical time for our producers as
they face escalating gasoline and
diesel prices and fertilizer costs
that have doubled in only two
years and have been exacerbated
by hurricanes. America is looking
to Congress for leadership."
Mr. Hoblick said consum-
ers can expect, higher costs due
to increased shipping costs, and


members of Congress can expect
to hear from the public as well as
from agricultural producers.
"What is needed," Mr. Hoblick
said, "is for Congress to develop
a bipartisan, comprehensive na-
tional energy policy that focuses
on energy independence while
diversifying the sources of the na-
tion's energy supply." Strategies,
he said, should include tapping
domestic oil and natural gas sup-
plies as well as concentrating on
development of renewable energy
sources including ethanol, biodie-


sel, biomass, wind and solar.
Congressional action now will
.help -assure consumers that fuel
prices will not whip-saw in the fu-
ture while stabilizing costs agricul-
tural producers pay to plant, fertil-
ize and ship their products. Florida,
-as the nation's winter salad bowl
and a major tourist destination, is
especially vulnerable to increased
energy costs. The Florida Farm Bu-
reau Federation is the state's largest
general-interest agricultural associ-
ation with about 140,000 member-
families statewide. Headquartered

Belle Glade Elementary School to receive free swimming lessons


The Palm Beach County Parks
and Recreation Department and
the Drowning Prevention Coali-
tion of Palm Beach County are
teaming up to present at the AS-
chools and Pools program for kin-
dergarten and first grade students
at Belle Glade's Pioneer Park El-
ementary School in Belle Glade.


The free swimming lessons are
offered during school hours.
According to the Palm Beach
County Medical Examiner's Of-
fice, eight percent of all drown-
ing incidents that occur in Palm
Beach County take place in the
Glades area.
With drowning being the


second-leading cause of uninten-
tional injury for children ages 1
to 14, the Drowning Prevention
Coalition has taken a proactive
approach to preventing water-
related injuries by implementing
a ASchools and Pools program.
Over a four-week time period,
approximately 130 kindergar-


ten and first-graders will receive
between 6 and 8 swimming les-
sons that last 35 minutes each.
Upon successful completion of
their swimming lessons, Principal
Peggy Back Nelson will host an
ice cream/cake party where each
student will receive a special cer-
tificate of participation.


Pioneer Park Elementary
School will hold Kindergarten and
1st Grade classes. Kindergarteners
will have classes on September
17, 18 and 19 from 10:55 a.m. to
12:50 p.m. First graders will begin
classes on September 23, 24, 26
and October 1,2 and 3 from 10:55
a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Classes will be


held at Pioneer Park Aquatic Cen-
ter, Belle Glade.
If you have any questions re-
garding this program, please call
the Drowning Prevention Coali-
tion of Palm Beach County at 561-
616-7068.

By Jeff Barwick
The Tigers. upset the previ-
ously unbeaten and top ranked
Class IA Gators in an explosive
offensive battle at Cane Field on
Friday night.
Improving their record to 2-1,
Clewiston unleashed a relentless
rushing attack that ate up huge
yardage through the Glades Day
defense.


tempt barely missed the mark to
the right.
The Gators then started their
first drive from the Tiger 28 and
picked up a couple of first downs
before being held and punter Bo
Schlechter nailed the ball out of
bounds at the Tiger five.
It took Clewiston 10 plays to
reach the Gator 28.' From there,

fis Hughes ripped off 352 yards

,out Jamarcus Smith for the touch-
down.
The point after kick was
blocked by the Gator defense.
On the kickoff, Gator Clinton
Johnson slipped through for a 33-
yard return and gave the Gators
great field position at the Tiger 42.


Glades Day quickly returned
the favor on a short three-play
drive that covered 70 yards.
Schlechter set up the score
with a 43-yard strike to Jackson
and Taylor swept the left side for
the final 17 yards.
Coach Pete Walker decided to
go for a two-point conversion but
the pass was incomplete.
The Tigers were holding art 18-
13 lead with 6:55 left in the half.
Not to be outdone in the business
of short scoring drives, Clewiston
only took two snaps and less than
a minute from the clock to cover
68 yards.
Hughes rambled for 38 on the
first play and fullback Joey Cor-
dova then ran a counter off the
right side and raced 30 yards' un-
touched for. the touchdown.
Having been unsuccessful all
night in conversions after scor-
ing,_ the Tigers were forced to go
for two again and the run was
stopped just short.
Not wanting to be outdone,
,Glades Day returned the two-play
scoring drive favor with Schlech-
ter hooking up on a 73-yard pass
to wide-open Davonte Allen.
Taylor rushed for the conver-
sion and the teams finally took a
break for halftime with Clewiston
on top, 24-21.
The second half was a differ-
ent ball game.
The defenses for both sides
made adjustments and fatigue of
players was no doubt a factor.
" Many of the players for both
squads were seeing double duty.
After holding the Gators, Bo
Schlechter nailed another ,punt
that.squirted out of bounds at the
Tiger 10.
It only took Clewiston six plays

to cover the 90 yards with Hughes
big run of 51 yards being the high-
light.
Hughes got the final four yards
on a plunge and a pass for the
conversion failed.
Glades Day's next drive used
Taylor's running to move into Ti-
ger territory but a holding penalty
and an incomplete pass turned
the ball over to Clewiston at the
34.
After an exchange of punts,
early in the final period the Ga-
tors moved to the Tiger 10 but a
stubborn defense held and forced
Schlechter to settle for a 23 yard
field goal to close out scoring for
the night.
The Gators had one last
chance and were moving the ball
but a Schlechter pass to Allen
went into his hands and quickly
popped straight up into the air af-
ter a crushing and well timed hit
by Tiger Damian Smith.
Tiger linebacker Lance New-
ton' snared the ball from midair
and fell to the 35-yard stripe with
1:40 left in the game.
The Tigers then killed the clock
and trotted off with an impressive
30-24 victory.
The Tigers had 454 yards of
total offense on the night. Full-
back Joey Cordova scored on a
30-yard jaunt and wideout Jamar-
cus Smith snagged a 28-yard pass
from quarterback Isandro Mar-
quez for the other Tiger scores.
The Gators, dropping to 2-1,
stayed in,the game'largely on the
240-yard passing performance of
senior quarterback Bo Schlechter,
although 212 of those yards.came
in the first half.
Schlechter's second half pass-.
ing seemed to be equally as sharp
but the Tiger secondary was cov-
ering much better and there were
a couple of catchable balls that
were not held.
Wideout De-Andres Jackson
led Glades Day receivers with 120
yards on 8 receptions.
Defensively, linebackers New-
ton and Dillon Irey led Clewis-
ton. Newton had 9 solo tackles, a
rushing sack and the interception
to seal the win. Irey was all over
the field with 8 tackles and a run-
ning sack.
Tiger Coach Joe Roth praised.
his team, "Up front our guys just
did the job tonight. They made
and sustained blocks. It was a
great victory for these kids."
The win preserved the Tigers'
record of never having lost to the
Gators at Cane Field.

Friends
Lately, I have had a large increase in the amount of discussion and feedback from both the Citizens and Law Enforcement Communities that is
conveying a message loud and clear to me. As Candidate for Hendry County Sheriff, November 4th, 2008, I feel compelled to convey this infor-
mation as it deeply concerns me as both a taxpayer, family man, and Candidate. There seems to be a large ever increasing concern over both
the capabilities and performance by the Hendry County Sheriff's Office as led by the current Sheriff. "Change" is the most common phrase I am
hearing from everyone these days. They want proactive plans instead of reactive. They want training that is commensurate with current trends
and criminal actions. They want to be able to have a voice in the operations of the Agency Most of all they want Deputies that are courteous,
polite, and honestly want to provide assistance to the citizens of Hendry County As everyone knows this is a growing problem and although not
representative of all Deputies, reflects bad morale, uncertain working conditions, and generally no confidence in their current leadership.
Remember, you as taxpayers are paying taxes every year for this service. Ask yourself "Are we,getting the absolute biggest return on our invest-
ment?" I know that when investing you search for the best return or value. I would appreciate your Vote on November 4th, 2008 for me as your
next Sheriff. I promise to invest your interests to provide their maximum
return. Can we expect anything less? Cell Phone (863) 673-3118 Address: 2100 Scott Rd

of Belle Glade that the check in
question was stolen, according to
the arrest report.
On July 28 at about 2:55 p.m.,
Bank of Belle Glade officials dig-
covered that the suspect improp-
erly cashed a $400 check from the
South Bay church.
Just two days later, on July 30,
a total of $600 was cashed at the

A monumental landmark of
rock limestone, to be dedicated
to the late Belle Glade environ-
mentalist Thomas E. Will, will be
placed on the triangle near the


bank.
Between 11:56 a.m. and 1:33
p.m., the suspect reportedly re-
ceived cash for two checks at the
Belle Glade bank one for $250
and another for $350.
It was revealed that the sus-
pect allegedly presented her state
identification card to the bank and
endorsed the backs of the checks
in question before receiving the
money.
Bank of Belle Glade officials
later found out that the checks
were-improperly used, which was


fountain fixture.
The purpose of the dedication,
officials say, is to remind locals of
the importance of the agricultural
economy and the preservation of
Lake Okeechobee and the Ever-
glades.
On the monument, a small
shrub will be placed nearby set
to provide an accent color and an

Investigators were able to ob-
tain a digital photo of the suspect,
confirming that she was the per-
son who reportedly cashed the
stolen checks.
On Aug. 9, it was also revealed
that the suspect stole- a $500
check from the South Bay church
and cashed it at Gilbert's Jewelers
and Gifts, Inc.
Robert Alvarez, the owner of
the jewelry store, told detectives
that she presented her identifica-
tion card and endorsed the back


enhanced visual for residents and
motorists alike.
All plants and fixtures are ex-
pected to be drought resistant
and wind tolerant, officials said.
The proposed fountain, to be
fully funded by FDOT, is set to
serve as a visual of falling waters
in efforts to remind motorists of
driving slower and safer around


of the check in question.
The store owner later found
out that the check was stolen
and forged, which was reportedly
confirmed by Deacon Mann.
The transaction was caught on
the store's surveillnace video, ac-
cording to the arrest report.
A $450 check was report-
edly stolen from the church and
cashed at One Stop Retail, Inc. in
Belle Glade.
The transaction was made on
Aug. 12 at about 11:10 a.m., ac-
cording to the affidavit.:

In addition, an array of pat-
terned concrete pavers will be on
full display at the. fountain's base.
Officials said that South Bay,
also known as the 'Crossroads of
South Florida,' currently has little
sense of definition to its citizens
and to those who pass through
the city.


Later in that day, the suspect
reportedly made an attempt to
cash a $500 check at the Bank of
Belle Glade.
After endorsing the check and
presenting her state identification,
the suspect drove away before
bank officials discovered that the
check was stolen and forged.
That transaction was report-
edly made at about 1:30 p.m.
In total, the South Bay church
was robbed of seven checks in
the amount of $2,850.

A Call To Fathers: They Need You


By J.R. Thicklin
Do you remember television
-shows and movies like "Father
Knows Best," "Father of The
Bride," Tyler Perry's "Daddy's Lit-
tle Girls," "The Cosby Show," "My
Three Sops" or "Good Times"? If
you noticed the common theme
amongst all of these movies and
shows is the presence of fathers.
Fathers are a vital part of life and
their presence or lack of presence
can impact their children and fam-
ily for generations.. Fathers help to
shape the future. and destiny of
their children and family. The si-
lence or absence of fathers can be
seen in every aspect of life.
Research has shown us and
the social ills have taught us that
the absence of a committed father
in the lives of his children has tre-


mendous consequences. Almost
75 percent of American children
. who grow up in single-parent
homes will experience poverty
before they turn 11-years-old,
compared to only 20 percent for
families where there are two par-
ents. The majority of teen moth-
ers come from homes 'without
fathers. 70 percent of juveniles in
state operated institutions come
from fatherless homes. .85 per-
cent of all youths sitting in prisons
grew up in a fatherless home.
Fathers are important and they
must recognize their vital im-
portance.. The sad reality is that
many men are not preparedto
be fathers and are not equipped
with the tools, skills nor insight
.to become effective fathers. In
response to this great- need and
the impact of Fatherlessness on


our children; First Care Family Re-
source Center in conjunction with
the National Fatherhood Initiative
is proud to offer the 24/7 Dad,
Program that is designed to help
equip the dads in our community
with the skills they need to be in-
volved, responsible, and commit-
ted fathers. NFI offers the most in-
novative fatherhood curricula in
the country to help best serve all
kinds of fathers at their points of
need. We address parenting from
a Father Perspective, celebrating
and encouraging the vital role of
fathers in the life of their children.
Whether you are a Expecting Fa-
ther, Current Father or a Seasoned
Father; The 24/7 Dad Program
will help you develop parenting
skills and develop a Fathering
Character that will strengthen you'
in becoming a responsible, and


rewarding father.
The 24/7 Dad program is be-
ing offered at First Care Family
Resource Center located at 233
West Avenue A, Suite C in Belle
Glade in the Goodwill Plaza. The
next class will began on Thursday,
Oct. 2. The program requires a
12-week commitment and is free.
Upon completion of this program
the participant will receive a Cer-.
tificate and a $25 Gilt Card. Food is
served at e% ery meeting. For more

Profile: Watching the Lake 0 sunset


Each evening, the
man Walks to watch
the sun go down

By Nina Wills
The Sun
PAHOKEE -- As the orange and
magenta- hues of another Lake
Okeechobee sunset dip below
the horizon, Ted Gallo and his
overweight .black dog Lucy trek
to the top of the earthen levee for
their daily routine.
Mr. 'Gallo, an older gentle-
man' and a resident of Pahokee
for nearly three decades, loves to
spend his time outdoors, particu-
larly at the lake.
Lake Okeechobee is Gallo's
treasure chest offering him new
gems to explore.
"Every day is different at the


lake, no two days are alike," Gallo
said.
He's had the unique pleasure
of watching thousands of pearly
ibis sail through the.early morn-
ing sky.
Earlier in the week, he found
a baby snapping turtle wandering
the top of the levee.
Gallo promptly returned the
small creature lo the water much
to his dog's dismay.
."Lucy can be a nature-eater
sometimes." '
As bicycle riders approach,
Gallo softly commands Lucy to
remain at his side.
Lucy can be rambunctious but
the dog obeys, playfully wagging
her tail.
Gallo waves a neighborly hello
and continues on his way.
The sounds of crickets pierce
the otherwise quiet evening.


The lake offers ,a private
sanctuary for Gallo to collect his
thoughts.
"I like to think. I have a 'things-
to-do-list' that I update."
He pictures the patterns for his
new quilt in the billowy clouds.
He thinks about his wife, Judy.
He packed up the family china
because he no longer has a need
for it.
His son from Maryland will fly
down in November to attend the
annual Muck Bowl between Pa-
hokee High and Glades Central.
His son can take the heirlooms
to Gallo's two grariddaughters.
Gallo remembers when teen-
agers would frequently swim in
the lake, but many residents have
moved from Pahokee.
He still believes that the sense
of community within the town is
strong and something special.


"This is the nicest place I've
ever lived and I love it here."
The hint of a breeze reminds
Gallo that soon he will be able to
fly his kites.
Herbert Hoover dike provides
the perfect place for this hobby.
"I think everyone should have
a toy, it's a part of life," Gallo
chuckled.
In the distance, royal palms
lining the main highway sway,
Gallo and his dog stroll down
the embankment.
The sun has made its final de-
scent, the daily walk has reached
its end, and the shadows of Gallo
and Lucy disappear.
