mourns loss of Griffith


Blue Devils outside
linebacker murdered
in crossfire

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
Norman Griffith, a Pahokee
Blue Devils football player, was
gunned down in the early morn-
ing hours of Sept. 27.
The incident has had a signifi-
cant effect on the entire area, es-
pecially the victim's family, team-


mates and coaches.
His family is grieving, and in a
larger sense, that extends to just
about anybody who hails from
the Pahokee area.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
deputies responded to a call of
the incident at Southwest 12th
Street and Dr. Martin Luther King
Jr. Boulevard in Belle Glade that
morning.
The shooting occurred as the
victim and a few of his teammates
exited a party held at a commu-

nity center in Belle Glade.
Officials say the shooting took
place just after the victim and the
teammates with him left the area
in an attempt to avoid a confron-
tation.
When they arrived, deputies
found the victim .inside 6f his
2004 Dodge Durango sport utility
vehicle with a gunshot wound to
his head.
Officials said that the Palm
Beach County Fire Rescue re-
sponded to the scene, with
the victim being transported to


Delray Community Hospital via
Trauma Hawk.
Unfortunately, the 18-year-
old was pronounced dead on
arrival.
One teammate was transport-
ed to Glades General Hospital for
observation due to the victim's
vehicle also being involved in a
vehicle crash into a telephone
pole.
The player was treated and
released from the hospital.

HRMC: About Prostate Cancer


Out of sight, out of mind if
you're like most men, that pretty
much sums up your relationship
with your prostate.
Ignoring your prostate isn't a
good idea, especially if you're 50
or older.
This small gland can cause big
problems in men as they get older
- most notably, cancer.
Other than skin cancer, pros-
tate cancer is the most common
type of cancer found in American
men.
In fact, one out of every six
men will develop prostate cancer
during his lifetime, reports the
American Cancer Society (ACS).
That's why you need to learn
about prostate cancer and why
you need to pay attention to your
prostate.
Risk Factors It's not known
what exactly causes prostate can-
cer, but there are certain risk fac-
tors that can increase your chanc-
es of getting the disease.
The greatest risk factor associ-


ated with prostate cancer is age.
Your chance of getting the dis-
ease increases quickly after you
reach the age of 50 about two
out of every three cases of pros-
tate cancer are found in men over
65, according to the ACS.
You may also be more likely
to get prostate cancer if you have
a family history of the disease, if
you're African American, or if you
have a diet high in red meat or
high-fat dairy products.
There is nothing you can do
about some risk factors such as
family history and race, but you
can help protect yourself from
other risks by practicing a healthy
lifestyle.
Screenings The ACS recom-
mends that you talk to your doc-
tor about the benefits and risks of
prostate cancer screening when
you reach the age of 50.
If you have high risk factors for
the disease, you should discuss
testing at age 45. If you decide to
be screened for prostate cancer,


there are two tests your doctor
may recommend: 1). a digital
rectal exam (DRE) in which a
doctor inserts a gloved finger into
your rectum to check the prostate
for hard or lumpy areas and 2).
a prostate-specific antigen (PSA)
test, in which a sample of your
blood is checked to determine
your PSA level.
DRE and PSA tests can both
detect problems with your pros-
tate. Neither test, however, can
determine whether an abnormal-
ity is cancer.
You may have to undergo a bi-
opsy to rule out cancer.
Symptoms Prostate cancer
doesn't always cause symptoms.
When it does, they may in-
clude: difficulty urinating or hav-
ing the need to urinate often (es-
pecially at night), difficulty having
an erection, blood in your urine
or semen, or frequent pain in
your lower back, hips or upper
thighs.
See your doctor right away


if you experience any of these
symptoms.
You may not have prostate
cancer.
Other, more benign conditions
of the prostate can cause similar
symptoms.
However, if you do have can-
cer, you should be diagnosed as
soon as possible so that you and
your doctor can consider treat-
ment options.
Those options include watch-
ful waiting, surgery, radiation
therapy, hormone therapy or a
combination of treatments.
To find out more about your
prostate, visit one of the doctors
at Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter.
You can also go to the hospital
website to locate a physician by
accessing www.hendryregional.
org.


God's Platform: Christian Unity


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
In last week's column I prom-
ised to give you God's Platform
for Christian Unity.
Just as the Democrats, Repub-
licans and Independents have
platforms on which they hope to
get elected, God has a platform to
unite all believers in Christ.
This platform is found in Ephe-
sians 4:1-6.
Plank One ONE BODY
(CHURCH): Jesus promised to
build His Church (Matthew 16)
and He promised the gates of Hell
would not prevail against IT.
He did not say "churches" in
the plural, but "church" in the
singular.
The church is called "the body
of Christ" in many places in the
scripture.
It is composed of every person
who has accepted Christ through
Faith, Repentance, Confession
and Baptism (Immersion) who
continues faithful to Christ.


Plank Two ONE SPIRIT: The
Holy Spirit lives in the Christian (I
Cor. 6:19-20) to produce Christian
Fruit (Galatians 5:22-23).
Jesus received the Holy Spirit
above measure (John 4), the
Apostles and the household of
Cornelius received the baptismal
measure (Acts 2, 10), the Apostles
gave Miraculous Spiritual Gifts to
believers in the first century of the
church (Acts 8:18,1 I Cor. 12), and
all immersed believers receive the
indwellingg presence of the Holy
Spirit" when they are baptized
(Acts 2:38).
Plank Three ONE HOPE: The
One Hope of the Christian is the
return of Christ to receive him
unto Himself, "that where He is,
there we may be also." (John 14,
I Thessalonians 4:13-18).
Plank 4 ONE LORD: Jesus
Christ is the One Lord. He has to-
tal authority in Heaven and Earth
(Matthew 28:18).
He is the ONE and ONLY Head
of His Church.
He is the Founder, Foundation


and Door of His Church.
"Neither is there salvation in
any other, for there is none oth-
er name, under heaven, given
among men whereby we must
be saved" (Acts 4:12).
Plank 5 ONE FAITH: The
world has many "faiths": Bud-
dhism, Mohammedism, Brah-
manism, Cofuscianism, Shinto-
ism, Judaism, Zoroasatrianism,
etc.
But the ONE FAITH Paul speaks
of is in Our Lord Jesus Christ.
This is the Faith that we must
confess (Romans 10:9-10) and
live by.
This One Faith was confessed
by Peter, the Ethiopian Eunuch,
and the faith required of those
coming to Jesus.
This One Faith comes by the
Word of God (Romans 10:17).
It is impossible to please God
without it (Hebrews 11:6)
Plank 6 ONE BAPTISM: When
you take all that the New Testa-
ment says about the Baptism of
all believers, you come up with:


Baptism is the "immersion in wa-
ter (Acts 8:36-39; Romans 6:4) of
a penitent believer in Jesus Christ
(Acts 8:37; Mark 16:15-16; Acts
2:38) for the remission of sins to
receive the gift of the Holy Spirit
(Acts 2:38).
One is thus saved (Mark 16:16,
I Peter 3:21) and puts on Christ
through faith (Galatians 3:26-27)
and the Lord adds him to His
Church (Acts 2:41,47).
He also "obeys the Gospel" (II
Thess. 1:8, Romans 6:3-6, 16-18).
Plank 7 ONE GOD: This is the
"Father" and that is how He is to
be addressed, according to Jesus
(Matthew 6:9).
We are to pray "in Jesus'
Name," since He is the "onlx Me-
diator between God and man" ( I
Timothy 2:5).
This excludes Mariolitry,
Saints, etc.
Those who desire the Unity for
which Christ prayed (John 17:20-
21) and Paul pleaded (I Cor. 1:10-
13) will stand on God's Platform
for Unity.

Limit animal handouts to the zoo


If you feed wild animals, you're
asking for trouble.
That's the message from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC).
"You're creating a hazard for
yourself, your neighbors and the
animals," FWC biologist Anni
Mitchell said.
"It's a thrill to have animals eat
from your hand, but you need to
limit that experience to captive
animals."
Feeding wildlife can cause ani-
mals to become a nuisance and
can be harmful to their health,
according to FWC wildlife biolo-
gists.
Most importantly, it can inter-
fere with their natural survival
instincts. FWC officials said feed-
ing wildlife does not help animals
and may actually harm them.
Also, it is illegal in Florida to
feed certain animals, including
sandhill cranes, bears, raccoons,
foxes, alligators and others.
Wild animals that get food
from human hands will start los-
ing their fear of people and their
natural ability to hunt or forage
for food on their own.
They may become aggressive
when they get hungry and do not
get fed.


In addition, the balance be-
tween food sources and wildlife
populations is delicate. In the
wild, animals produce as much
young as the food source can sus-
tain.
If other unnatural food sources
become available, such as human
handouts, animals may produce
more offspring, and that over-
loads the availability of natural
food sources, according to FWC
experts.
"If natural food sources be-
come scarce or are no longer
available, animals may starve,"
Mitchell said.
Fed animals may be "lured"
across roads to artificial foods
sources, risking dangerous en-
counters with vehicles.


Sometimes, humans uninten-
tionally feed wild animals. Pet
bowls, bird feeders or garbage
cans with loose lids can attract
animals and cause the same loss
of natural instinct as feeding them
intentionally, Mitchell said.
"Urban sprawl may put hu-
mans and wildlife in direct con-
tact, but it's best to enjoy wild ani-
mals from a distance," FWC bear
biologist Stephanie Simek said.
The FWC has a few sugges-
tions: Store pet food inside and
feed pets inside. If you must feed
your pet outside, remove the food
dishes and any spilled food im-
mediately after feeding.
Use bear-proof garbage con-
tainers and set them out the morn-
ing of pick-up, not overnight.

Understanding the difference


Between Wall-Street
and Main Street

Contributed by First
Bank and Trust of
Indiantown
Much information has been
swirling around the media sur-
rounding the financial crisis and
the government bailout plan.
We know that it can sometimes
be difficult to tell the difference
between what is happening with
big Wall-Street investment banks
such as Goldman Sachs and Le-
hman Brothers and an FDIC in-
sured community bank like First
Bank and Trust of Indiantown.
There are important differences.
Investment banks operate dif-
ferently from commercial banks
and thrift institutions. Their pri-
mary purpose is to facilitate the
sale of stocks and bonds. These
Wall Street firms operate as advis-
ers and agents for companies that


want to raise capital, often by\is-
suing more stock or other securi-
ties.
Commercial banks and thrift
institutions take deposits for
checking and savings accounts
from consumers and businesses.
These deposits are insured by
the FDIC for up to $100,000 per
account and up to $250,000 for
retirement accounts. These banks
lend this money to consumers
and companies for autos, homes,
business equipment, etc.
Most recently the U.S. Trea-
sury Department announced an
unprecedented, voluntary one-
year guaranty program insuring
.S. money market funds to stem
losses resulting from global fi-
nancial market turmoil. Addition-
ally we felt that it is important for
consumers to understand the key
differences between their money
market deposit account and a
money market mutual fund.
A money market mutual fund
is a short-term mutual fund that


invests in government securi-
ties, certificates of deposit, asset-
backed commercial paper and
other highly liquid securities.
Money market funds sell shares
to investors and earn interest
based on performance. However,
if the fund suffers a major loss,
the shareholder has no guarantee
that the investment will be repaid.
Until last week, these investments
carried no insurance. However,
the new guaranty program ap-
plies only to those money market
funds that pay a fee to join it, and
would only protect assets invest-
ed prior to Sept. 20, for a period
of one year.
A money market deposit ac-
count is an interest-bearing sav-
ings account that typically earns
more than a regular savings ac-
count, but less than a money
market fund. MMDAs are also
less risky than MMFs: they are
insured by the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation (FDIC) for
up to $100,000 per depositor per


insured bank and up to $250,000
for some retirement accounts.
Your FDIC insured community
bank is still the safest place for
your money. According the Amer-
ican Banker's Association 98
percent of nation's 8,500 banks
are considered "well capitalized"
- the highest designation possible
- the possibility of your bank be-
ing taken over by the FDIC is "ex-
tremely remote.'

tions, please contact First Bank
and Trust of Indiantown at: 863-

Beware of the unknown black holes


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
On Sept. 8, the Large Hadron
Collider (LHC) was finally turned
on, and we weren't turned off -
which is a good thing!
The LHC is a seventeen mile
long circular tunnel designed to
smash together protons in a re-
enactment of the Big Bang.
Originally to have been built
outside Houston, the LHC moved
to Switzerland when a combina-
tion of fears, financial and other
concerns killed the U.S. project in
the mid-90s.
The Europeans picked it up
and ran with it.
The real miracle of this proj-
ect was not the bringing together


of two protons, but the: bringing
together of eight thousand physi-
cists from eighty-five different
countries to build this enormous
machine.
There is one tiny little glitch in
all this good news and impressive
scientific advancement.
That is the nagging concern
held by some researchers that
this machine could cause the end
of the world as we know it.
Those who predicted this
doomsday scenario suggest that
if physicists succeed in re-creating
the "Big Bang," they might also
create a black hole.
This black hole, a sucking void
of anti-matter, will simply slurp us
in, cannibalizing our planet and
possibly taking the entire galaxy


with it.
The unfortunate truth is that
black holes happen in our lives all
the time.
There are frequent collisions
between opposing forces that
can slam us down and suck out
our soul if we let them.
It is one thing to experience
this brokenness in the form of
forces that ambush a large num-
ber of people like Hurricane Ike
or the recent economic, Wall
Street crisis.
But it is much worse when the
black hole threatens to take us
down personally, especially when
it's in front of the eyes of friends
and peers.
Come with me to a third grade
classroom.


Nine-year-old Johnny is sitting
at his desk and all of a sudden,
there is a warm feeling between
his legs and the front of his pants
are wet.
Fear-struck, Johnny can't imag-
ine how it could have happened.
When he looks up and sees
the teacher approaching with a
look in her eyes that says he has
been discovered, Johnny believes
his heart is going to stop.
As the teacher walks toward
him, classmate Susie is carrying a
goldfish bowl filled with water at
the same time.
Susie trips in front of the teach-
er and inexplicably dumps the
bowl of water in Johnny's lap.
Surprised but relieved, Johnny
repeats over and over to himself,


Regarding our current crisis


"Thank you, Lord! Thank you!"
Now, instead of being the ob-
ject of ridicule, Johnny is the ob-
ject of sympathy.
The teacher rushes him down-
stairs and gives him gym shorts to
put on. The sympathy is wonder-
ful, but as life would have it, the
ridicule that should have been his
was transferred to someone else
-Susie.
Susie tries to help, but they tell
her, "You've done enough, you
klutz!"
At the end of the day, as they
are waiting for the bus, Johnny
sees Susie and walks over to her.
"You did that on purpose,
didn't you?" Susie whispers back,
"I had an 'accident' once, too."
"--we will walk with each


other, we will walk side by side;
and we'll guard each one's digni-
ty and save each one's pride; and
they'll know we are Christians by
our love, by our love. Yes, they'll
know we are Christians by our
love."
When love and compassion is
our mission, great things can hap-
pen.
Black holes can't be created
or sustained with the collision of
love and compassion.
People may not remember ex-
actly what we say, and they may
not remember everything we did,
but they will always remember
how we made them feel.
And that can help seal up the
black holes that try to form in
their lives.


And other crises I
have faced through
the years

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I was leaving a hospital one
day after making several calls
and was riding the elevator to the
ground floor.
As the door opened at one of
the lower floors, a lady asked if
I would step out and stand with
her for a few moments.
I imagine the way I dress spoke
to her about who I was and what
I represented.
I exited and we stood there.
Her face told me something
was obviously wrong; not surpris-
ing in the setting where we found
ourselves.
I asked her if she wanted to
talk or pray about anything; she
said "no."
After awhile, she told me "I'm
all right now, thank you."
We rode the elevator in silence
to the ground floor and each went
on our way.
I don't ever recall seeing her
again; that's okay.
I remember stopping at a
country gas station one night.
It was a long way from home
and I had just received bad news.
The station was about to close
and the clerk said, "You look like
you could use some coffee; just


take it, I was about to throw it out
anyway."
In the midst of my own sad-
ness and turmoil, .someone was
kind and went out of his way to
ease a burden he did not even
know about.
I don't ever recall seeing him
again either, but he is remem-
bered for his simple act of kind-
ness and the difference he made
to me that night.
A man in transit came to my
office one day for a handout.
I had a few dollars to help,
shared it and told him where else
he might receive help on his jour-
ney.
This often happens in the life
of the clergy; there was nothing
special on my part and nothing
exceptional about him or the
plight where he found himself.
Months later, he returned and
said "Do you remember...?" Yes,
I remembered, and he filled in
parts of his reason for needing
help that was not shared the first
time.
He cried as he told me he had
just been released from prison
and was seriously considering
what he would have to do, return-
ing to a former life, and then not
having to do it.
I thought about how little I had
done for this person.
How little I did for someone in
a hospital one day.
How wonderful a man in a gas
station had been to me; I guess
he long since had forgotten.it.


A simple act of human kind-
ness in the midst of turmoil in life;
so little and yet so much.
So many times what seems
like a small thing to one person
has great meaning to another.
In each of our lives, we are
called on to do many things that
seem "important"; on our jobs,
or in our homes, in our commu-
nities or as a nation.
Sometimes, in passing, a little
act speaks volumes about us and
makes all the difference to anoth-
er in a moment of need.
The small acts speak volumes
about us; what kind of people
we really are, what we really be-
lieve, whether we are trustworthy
or not, if we can be counted on
when the chips are down.
The Lord told His disciples
"He who is faithful in a very little
is faithful in much; and he who is
dishonest in a very little is dishon-
est in much (Luke 16:10)."
We've been hearing a lot lately
about our economic crises and
the difficulties we face as a nation
that will affect us all.
The size of our problems has
everyone wondering where it will
all end and how we each will be
affected.
Rightly so!
There seems to be no easy
or happy solution, no escaping
the fear of hard times to come,
no avoiding the impact that will
touch each of our lives.
As I thought about those who
have been a great help to me and


those who maybe I've helped, or
who have told me I helped; it was
not in the great things on my part
or theirs, but simple acts, things
that were almost unimportant to
me and maybe unimportant to
them.
On a grander scale, if we are
to be healed and helped, it may
be our simple acts toward one
another that will make the final
difference.
The great problems and cri-
ses will be there, and work out in
God's good time and His way.
They always have; there is no
reason to doubt that these times
will be any different.
In the interim, the crucial dif-
ference may be well in how we
respond to each other, how we
treat each other in hard times.
Luke tells us that our being
faithful with small things will lead
to trust with Heavenly things (ch
16:11).
We may have a part in solving
crises or healing after all. I cannot
do everything, but I can do some-
thing.
Imagine if everyone did some-
thing small; maybe great things
would get better after all!

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe, their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad .dogs" than
"watchdogs."


We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

6 OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Speak Out
Speak Out has moved online, where it is quicker and
easier to share your ideas and converse with others. Go to
www.newszap.com, click on the community name and your
local or state Public Forum. There, you can create new
topics or comment on existing topics. You can also e-mail
comments to clewnews@newszap.com or call 863-983-9140,
but online comments get posted faster and not all phone calls
can be printed. What follows is a sampling of some of the
discussions currently taking place. Thanks for participating!
SAC MEETING: Had a great meeting at Pahokee High the other
night. Lots of people attended the School Advisory Council. They
meet on the 4th Monday of every month to discuss a variety of issues
that affect the school, students and teachers. As we were walking out,
one of my favorite city commissioners was helping me take all my
training materials out to my car and had a mishap. I hope my favor-
ite commissioner is doing ok. I'm thrilled to see the city of Pahokee
involved with the school on that level. I'd like to see more elected
officials/employees in our schools, either serving on SAC, or mentor-
ing! Perhaps we could even set up some community service projects
for the students? The IB kids, Juniors and Seniors need the hours for
graduation! (I sure hope there is a city official reading this.) Oh, and
by the way, we even signed up a few local businesses as partners, too!
It was very productive! I'm very proud of our folks stepping up to get
involved. Keep up the good work, Pahokee!
CONCERNS FOR PAHOKEE:I don't know about you, but I am
sick and tired of elected officials who decide they are much too im-
portant to communicate with their constituents. I know that some-
times people get tired of me and my opinions, but I seriously LOVE
this community and can not stand to see it fall even further into chaos.
Before this past city election, I spoke with a commission candidate
and an incumbent and expressed my concerns about the future of
Pahokee. Both of these people told me in very plain English that they
would work very hard with Mayor Whitaker if he won the election
and I believed them because I thought they were telling the truth.
OOPS! Shame on me for doing that because since the election they
have done nothing but work against the new mayor. Shame on them
for not only abandoning Mr. Whitaker, but for refusing to return nu-
merous phone calls when I am trying to understand his actions. I re-
ally thought we had a new day dawning after the election in March
and never dreamed one of the commissioners would turn his back
on all of us who trusted him. I only post this because I want to know
why our commission seems to be united against the very man they
fought hard to elect. I want all this to end and, like J.P. Sasser tried to
tell us in his letter to The Sun recently, I too want this community to
wake up and get involved in making a future for all of us. Please don't
get me wrong here, this commissioner has worked very hard for this
community for many years and I have worked hard with and for him
when he needed me, but I just want him to see the error of his ways
and stop this power trip he is on and get back to just being my friend
and neighbor.

Letters to the Editor


Life lost
Nothing is ever certain in this
Life but excuses. Saturday morn-
ing brought new pain, anger and
blames as this community awoke
to hear about another senseless
murder of a young, gifted Paho-
kee athlete who some say was
just in the wrong place at the
wrong time. No place and abso-
lutely at no time is the right place
and time for murder.
This community is in shock
today and everywhere you go
the same question is on so many
minds. That one question has
been asked countless times be-
fore yet we continue to fail to act
on any questions except point fin-
gers. The big question of course is
"What are we going to do?"
I say we have already failed
when we allow babies to have
babies, allow our youth to disre-
spect their teachers, parents, and
law enforcement personnel. We
have failed as a society when we
allow our children to walk around
town with their underwear show-
ing. We have failed as parents
when we have no idea where
our children are, who they are
with, and at what time they might


come home. I am 60 years old and
thank God that my parents cared
so much about me and my safety
that we had to be in the house by
11, and if we weren't, we paid the
consequences.
Our society has failed our chil-
dren by giving them everything
and holding them responsible for
nothing. We have failed as lead-
ers when we allow video games
that teach children all about
murder, rape, drugs and hatred. I
think our children can not distin-
guish between video games and
reality. Unlike video games, you
can't push reset when you kill
someone.
The first finger of blame is
aimed at law enforcement or
teachers or parents. None of these
people can be everywhere they
are needed, yet they are blamed.
We need to take a deep look at
ourselves as a society and take
the moves necessary to keep our
children safe, educated, and wor-
thy of a great future. It may take a
village to raise a child, but the par-
ents are supposed to be in charge
of that village or at least their little
piece of it and many are not.
In my opinion, one giant step
we need to take to remedy our


problems is to send a message to
our judges that we want judge-
ment for crimes against us. The
word judge is the biggest part
of the word judgement, yet the
smallest part of the remedy. We
don't want a slap on the hand
from a pompous judge who
blames criminal activity on the
"environment" the criminal was
forced to live in. Bull. If these
judges are so sure of this excuse
for letting murderers, rapist, drug
dealers and the like back onto the
streets, then let them back on the
street in that judge's neighbor-
hood. Why in the world do we
pay law enforcement to protect
and serve us if they do all they can
only to have the criminal back on
the street sometimes before the
end of their shift? Why bother
if judges won't stand up and do
their job?
In case the rest of Palm Beach
County did not know this, a new
12 story jail is being built in Belle
Glade right across the street from
the new hospital. There is some-
thing wrong with our society
when we can build a new jail
with tax money, 12 stories of jail,
but when it comes to building a
much smaller and more impor-


tant element of our community,
the hospital, we have to beg for
the money. Just wrong.
Even when the pompous
judges fill those jails, they are only
providing a breeding ground for
future hard criminals. It is a comi-
cal fact among prisoners that they
can get drugs, wine, sex, and
more while in prison or jail. Why
is that?
We have no more justice
in this country. Thugs run the
streets, Thugs run the prisons.
Some judges enable criminals.
Don't even get me started on the
ACLU. When I go to the polls I
am going to answer one question
on that ballot with one strong
NO. That question is asked about
each judge and it usually reads
"Do you want Judge John Doe
to retain his seat on the bench?"
I will be voting no,6n every judge.
A judge should not make the law,
he should interpret the law to car-
ry out justice for the law-abiding
citizens, not the thugs.
I feel it is time for us all to just
say STOP.

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-

6 OPINION












The First People in the New World


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The hunters were of medium
height with broad sculptured
faces, high cheekbones, piercing
dark eyes and long coarse, black
hair.
The sun had burned their skin a
rich mahogany brown, and years
of hunting had molded lean, hard
bodies, tempered like steel.
They wore leather shirts and
leggings, cured and blackened
by the smoke of countless camp
fires.
Necklaces, decorated with
carved ornate ivory amulets dan-
gled on their chests. Soft skinned
Bison moccasins, cleverly sewn
with sinew, covered their feet.
A fire hardened wooden spear
shaft, tipped with a flint point,
rested in each hunter's hand.
The hunters were trotting at a
steady gait, when a slight move-
ment on the horizon caused them
to stop abruptly and focus on the
dark objects that were moving
slowly across the open plains.
Swiftly, the hunters moved in
a single fluid motion, sprinting
across the open grassy plains to a
small, shallow gully, formed years
before .by a flash flood of raging
water.
There the ambush was set,
as ,the hunters patiently waited
down wind from the approaching
herd of Bison.
This story took place thou-


sands of years ago when nomadic
hunters first started migrating to
North America at the end of the
Ice Age.
These people were called
the Paleolndians because they
emerged at the end of the Pleisto-
cene period, the Great Ice Age.
Who were these people,
where did they come from, and
how did they live?
To answer these questions, we
must take "A Walk in The Past."
Archeologists have different
views when identifying the time
periods and routes that Paleoln-
dians used when migrating into
North America, Central America
and South America.
Some believe the first no-
madic migrations entering North
America came from East Asia
approximately 20,000 to 35,000
years ago.
Others believe the migrations
started much sooner, 12,000 to
14,000 years ago.
What's certain is that the first
migrations occurred more than
12,000 years ago.
The Bering Strait is a natural
sea channel that is 160 feet deep
and 53 miles wide, separating
Asia and Alaska.
During the Ice Age, world sea
levels dropped several hundred
feet and the Bering Strait rose
from the sea, forming the Bering
Land Bridge that connected North
America and Asia.


Most archeologists believe the
first nomadic hunters from East
Asia took this route.
They think the hunting groups
migrated first across the Bering
Land Bridge into North America,
spreading across the continent
and then south to Central and
South America.
However, other archeologists
theorize that low sea levels creat-
ed many migratory routes for no-
madic hunting groups to follow.
The Aleutian Islands, hanging
like a string of pearls between
Alaska and Japan, could have
formed a land bridge that nomad-
ic groups followed.
These groups may have taken
a southern route when they en-,
tered North America and migrated
into Central and South America.
Different groups from Siberia
may have followed a southern
route, by-passing other migratory
routes into North America.
However, there is no archeo-
logical proof to support these
,migratory route theories because
those would-be-routes now lay
hundreds of feet beneath the sea.
Other migratory theories spec-
ulate the low sea levels created
land routes for Pacific migrations
from Australia, New Guinea or
early European migrations from
Europe.

Beauty salons go 'green'


TALLAHASSEE-With the con-
sumer push for greener, cleaner
and more eco-friendly businesses
growing, many businesses are
looking for opportunities to show
their environmental commitment'
to consumers. In an effort to pro-
vide Florida's salons the possibil-
ity to collectively contribute to the
green movement, The Florida As-
sociation of Beauty Professionals
(FAB) launched a new, industry-
wide certification program that
will allow environmentally friend-
ly salons to demonstrate their
commitment to the industry and,
consumers. The FAB PRO Green
Conscious Salon Certification is
an effort designed by the industry
and for the industry to help direct
and encourage salons to decrease
both their carbon footprint and
save money by reducing energy
costs. "Until now, salons have not
been provided an opportunity or
encouraged to become greener
and more eco-conscious," said
FAB President/CEO Rick Wallace.
,"The FAB Pro Green Conscious
Salon Certification is another ex-
ample of industry self-regulation,
which has proven to be successful
in other industries." The FAB PRO
Green Conscious Certification
is intended to distinguish those
businesses that are implement-
ing procedures, technology and
practices that.are eco-friendly. In
order to become FAB PRO Green
Conscious Certified, a salon must
meet the established criteria.
These criteria include satisfactory
completion of three core activities,
which represent a minimum of
best management practices and
include communication, commit-
ment and waste reduction. In ad-
dition, salons must demonstrate
successful completion of two
additional optional activities and
one salon-specific activity. "We
designed the certification so that it
would push salons beyond what
they were currently implement-
ing," said Joanne Powers, Chair of
the Executive Committee. "In or-
der to become and stay certified,
salons will have to continually
move towards greener, less-toxic
and more environmentally friend-
ly practices. "FAB's goal with the
FAB PRO Green Conscious Salon
Program is to increase awareness
,and support for businesses that
are taking steps to become more
environmentally friendly. The des-
ignation process has been created
to help encourage and reinforce
sustainable behaviors that lead
to positive results for the environ-
ment.
For more information on the
FAB PRO Green Conscious Sa-


Ion Certification or to download

FAB Professionals is a non-
profit association that represents
licensed salons, spas, schools,


industry professionals and stu-
dents. FAB Professionals' mission
is to provide strong industry lead-
ership by bringing a.unified voice
for legislative representation and
to provide quality services and
programs for members to grow.

descent.
There has been no solid arche-
ological evidence to support these
theories, but nothing is written in
stone, so only time will tell.
Archeologists are in agreement
that different Eastern Asian ethnic
groups migrated to North Amer-
ica, Central America and South
America because of the multiple
native languages, cultures and
geographical settlements.
The first nomadic hunters en-
tering the Americas built simple
shelters because the small hunt-
ing groups were moving con-
stantly to follow the herds of wild
animals.
Later, warm climate changes
spelled doom for many of the
large mammals but encouraged
wider plant distribution.
The nomadic groups started
adapting, supplementing their
primary meat diets with plants,
becoming food gatherers.
Plants (corn, pumpkins, and
beans) were domesticated, and
food gatherers became farmers.
The farmers created sedimen-
tary villages that grew into great
civilizations in North and South
America.
Some of the nomadic groups
that moved into Florida merged
with the climate changes, from
small hunting groups into food
gatherers and later farmers.
Other groups remained food
gathers because of Florida's great

marine resources. Some of the
Indian groups in Florida would-
grow and prosper, forming large
villages that encompassed large
geographical areas in Florida.
These geographical areas
would emerge as Indian nations
that would later be identified by
European names: Tequesta, Ais,
Jeaga, Hobe, Tocobaga, Mayaimi,
Calusa, and Apalachee tribes.
Unfortunately, the true original
Indian names for these nations
and many of their languages have
been lost in time.
The lost Florida Indian nations
left us clues to their lives and cul-
ture.
Arrowheads, pottery shards,


and fish bones all reveal an in-
sight into their lives.
Tall Tales about these Indian
nations will be revealed in the
next edition of "A Walk in The
Past."

Book club sends daily excerpts


By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
At this time in our lives, many
of us have promised ourselves to
take it easy and find time to read.
But there are so many books on
the shelves, where to start? Have
you ever wished you could read a
few pages of a book to see if it is
really what you are looking for?
I am a member of an e-mail
book club that has allowed me
to get a "taste" of a book before
I purchase it or check it out of the
library. This is one more reason to
have an e-mail address.
If you are like me, you will
look forward to this e-mail every
day. The e-mail book club, called
Dear Reader, looks at one book
per week. You get an e-mail each
day Monday through Friday and a
little more of the book is revealed.
I don't mean somebody's review.
I mean actual text from the book
itself. On Monday, the book is in-
troduced and an excerpt from the
first chapter appears in the e-mail.
Then, Tuesday through Friday you
will read more of the book until
by Friday, you will have read the
first 20 pages or so. For all of you
avid readers out there, this is
great. This is enough of the book
to know if you want to read more.
The club also introduces you to
books you would never have oth-
erwise known existed.
Additionally, you can pick the
kinds of read you are looking for
by genre. Among your choices

Fishing remains



healthy tradition


By Bob Wattendorf
Freshwater fishing is one of
the many outdoor recreational
activities encouraged by the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
The FWC views outdoor rec-
reation as a tremendously ben-
eficial opportunity that should be
available to all residents and visi-
tors, and it strives to provide qual-
ity fishing, hunting and wildlife-
viewing opportunities.
Cheryl Charles, president of
the Children and Nature Network,
points out, "People throughout the
world- are increasingly connected
by a resonance and passion, to
create a new common sense for
the good health of children today
and generations to come."
Dr. Andrew Lepp, assistant
professor of recreation, park and
tourism management at Kent
State, said the benefits from out-
door recreation are varied and
plentiful.
Outdoor recreation has psy-
chological benefits, including the
prevention or reduction of stress
and improved self-esteem, confi-
dence and creativity.
Dr. Lepp also contends it adds
to spiritual growth and leads to an
increased sense of exhilaration,
adventure and challenge from life.'
Getting outside provides physical
benefits, such as aerobic, cardio-
vascular and muscular fitness, as
well as improved functioning of
the immune system.
It even offers benefits for the
social life. The great outdoors
affords social benefits, such as


bonding with like-minded people
who also enjoy outdoor activities,
and feeling an increased pride in
your community and nation.
The economy benefits from
all of this activity as well. Outdoor
recreation creates job opportu-
nities for others, which leads to
economic growth and preserva-
tion of the natural areas needed
for outdoor recreation increases
property values.
The workplace wins because
people who regularly participate
in outdoor recreation tend to be
more productive at work, Lepp
said.
The list continues with posi-
tive outcomes for the environ-
ment. People who participate in
outdoors activities usually have
increased environmental aware-
ness.
This awareness translates to
increased involvement in environ-
mental issues.
Specific activities such as fish-
ing can add to the enthusiasm
and provide a fun challenge to
become increasingly skillful. In
Florida, the abundance of natu-
ral waters (7,700 named lakes,
12,000 miles of fishable rivers and
canals) means the opportunity is
available to everyone.
From digging worms and mak-
ing your own cane pole, to casting
a lure, you develop a connection
with nature that comes naturally
and has been an American tra-
dition since long before Mark
Twain's tales of the adventurous
Huck Finn.

Glades Central Slams Tigers, 43-0


INI/Ashley Smith
Fans packed the Clewiston stadium in anticipation of last week's game against visiting Glades
Central. Glades Central managed to outplay the Tigers, with the Tiger scorecard posting 0
points at the end of the night.


INI/Ashley Smith
Tiger coaches pressed their players to find ways of penetrating the Raider defense, but not-
ing seemed to work and the Raiders went on to win the much-anticipated game.


By Jeff Barwick
The Glades Central Raiders
rolled into Cane Field on Friday
night and served notice that their
top ranking in Class 3A and Num-
ber 7 in the state was right on tar-
get as they rolled up 542 yards of
total offense.


and deferred until the second
half.

the opening kickoff 37 yards and

complete passes by quarterback

Tiger Darris Hughes on a 14-yard scamper during last week's
game against Glades Central. The Tigers were unable to
come back from a Raider lead throughout the game.


The loss dropped the Tigers'
record to 2-2 while the Raiders
improved to 4-0 and have only al-
lowed 15 points.
Clewiston won the coin toss


the Tigers on downs.

ting runs of 9 and 6 yards but then

punted the ball dead at the Raid-
ers 21.
The Raiders rushed and passed
the ball to the Tiger 44 where, with
2:48 left in the period, Thomas
fired a strike to 6'5" wideout Kel-
vin Benjamin for the score.
Kicker Alanda Shaw tacked on
the point after.
The Raiders got the ball back
early in the second period and
put together a six play, 77-yard
drive.
About their only tough going
along the way was three penal-
ties against them for motion or
procedure.
Running back Antwon Chil-
som rumbled up the middle
for the final 13 yards at the 7:30
mark.
Shaw's conversion was good,
making it 14-0. The Tigers went
three and out quickly and Glades
Central took possession at their
own 25.
Despite two more Raider pen-
alties, it only took them three
snaps to cover the yards with
Thomas hitting wide receiver
Rantavious Wooten for an 83-
yard touchdown.
Shaw again converted and set
the score at 21-0.
The Tigers tried an offensive
variation and went to a direct
snap formation with speedster Ja-
marcus Smith in the deep spot.
The first snap sailed high and
through the end zone to pin a
safety on Clewiston.
Clewiston punted the free kick
and Glades Central set up their


next series near midfield.
On the first play, Thomas
dropped back and threw across
the middle.
Tiger linebacker Dillon Irey
deflected the ball and fellow line-
backer Fred Washington snatched
it in and returned the ball to the
Raider 39.
Another Raider penalty gave
the Tigers a first down but Tiger
quarterback Isandro' Marquez'
third down pass was picked off by
lRaider cornerback Charles Dow-
ers with only 31 seconds remain-
ing in the half.
True to Glades Central form
over the history of the rivalry with
Clewiston, a few seconds on the
clock meant absolutely nothing.
On the second snap, Thomas
found Wooten loose on the side-
line, Wooten grabbed the pass,
stopped, changed directions, side
stepped two Tiger defenders and
raced for an 83-yard touchdown
with 7 seconds remaining.
The Raiders were penalized
15 yards for excessive celebration
and brought in long kicker Rob-
ert Ferguson to attempt the extra
point from 35 yards out.
Tiger defensive end Adam
Trevino stormed in and blocked
the kick.
The third period was a score-
less event.
With 2:50 on the clock, Dillon
Irey gave the Tiger faithful some-
thing to cheer about when he
snuffed a Raider drive by picking
off a Thomas pass and returning
it 41 yards but the Tiger offense
just couldn't get the ball moving.
In the final period, Glades Cen-
tral scored twice.
Back-up running back James
Melton raced for a 57-yard score
early in the quarter and Chilsom
scored his second on the night on
a 13-yard scamper with 7:41 left
in the game.
Shaw and Ferguson, respec-
tively, converted the extra points.
Tiger senior tailback Darris
Hughes, who entered the game
averaging over 12 yards per carry,
was held to 66 hard earned yards
on 20 attempts.
Tiger Head Coach Joe Roth
was disappointed saying, "We
had been making weekly prog-
ress on becoming a better foot-
ball team but that didn't happen
tonight. We made a lot of mis-
takes against a great team." Add-
ing after a pause, "We knew we
had to avoid the big plays and we
didn't. They are good but not 43
points better."
Junior linebacker Dillon Irey
led Clewiston with 7 tackles, a
pass interception returned for 41
yards, and a tipped pass that line-
backer Fred Washington snared


Submitted photo/Jeff Barwick


and returned 21 yards.
The Raiders wore down the Ti-
gers who dressed only 23 players
for the contest.
When it was all said and done,
Clewiston emerged in fairly good
physical condition.
Linebacker Leonard Newton
had what appeared to be a minor
leg injury and center Dillon Irey
had a hurting right hand.
Linebacker and reserve run-
ning back Joey Cordova missed
the game due to a hamstring
pull.
Hopefully, all will be healthy
for the Tigers' non-district game
Friday night at Delray American
Heritage.
The Tigers are hoping to
avenge a 56-0 pasting from the
Stallions last season.

Terriers win in impressive fashion


INI/Naji Tobias
The national anthem was led by the Moore Haven High School marching band, which helps
sets the stage for an easy home win on Sept. 25.


Moore Haven quarterback Dalton Britt escapes a Hurricanes rush in the first quarter, show-
ing his mobility in the Terriers 61-20 win over Miami-Hillel Community Day on Sept. 25.


Hall rushes for 124
yards, three scores
in first half

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN Who would
have thought that the Moore Ha-
ven Terriers would score 61 points
in the first half?
Believe it, because that's what
happened against Miami Hillel
Community Day on Thursday,
Sept. 25.
In Moore Haven's 61-20
thumping of the Hurricanes, ju-
nior running back Fred Hall led


the team with three first half
touchdowns on 13 carries for 124
rushing yards (135 overall).
Senior quarterback Dalton
Britt was 9-for-12 passing with
230 yards and three touchdowns.
He got wide receivers Xavier
Fagan (five receptions, 121 yards)
and Keonte White (two recep-
tions, 58 yards) involved in the
game, throwing for scores to
each of them,
Both Fagan (two touchdowns)
and White (one touchdown)
scored in the first half.
Also, while the starters were
in the game, Elazarus Balckmon
(one reception, 40 yards) scored
a touchdown on a 50-yard punt


return with 6:00 left in the first
half.
Just 50 seconds later, with 5:10
left in the second quarter, Terry
Hallback returned a 57-yard inter-
ception for a touchdown to put
Moore Haven up, 55-14.
Hall finished Moore Haven's
scoring with just 36.5 seconds left
in the first half on a 2-yard touch-
down run.
Moore Haven finished with
444 total yards of offense in this
game.
With that being said, as im-
pressive as the Terriers win was,
it was against a first-year pro-
gram that had many players who
haven't had much football experi-


ence.
"Overall, we did real good in
the first half," Hall said.
"We try to come out with as
much passion as we can.
"Coach (Jason Bond) told us
to go hard and make pancakes
on every play," Hall continued. "I
credit our offensive line because
without them, I wouldn't be able
to do what I did."
Hurricanes head coach David
Freed was impressed with Moore
Haven's play, noting Hall's agres-
siveness and speed shown on dis-
play throughout the first half.
"Moore Haven played very
physical, tough and disciplined,"
Freed said.


Pahokee wins easily in homecoming game


INI/Naji Tobias
The Glades Day Gators are preparing to take on the Okeechobee team tomorrow night.


Important notes for
Glades Day, Glades
Central games

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PAHOKEE "This is a black eye
for our team," said Blaze Thomp-
son, Pahokee's head coach, refer-,
ring to a rash of penalties issued
in a Sept. 26 game.
It's safe to say that the referees
took center stage in the Pahokee
Blue Devils 34-10 victory against
Jupiter.
The state's top Class 2B team
looked somewhat uncomfort-
able after being flagged for two
penalties before the game even
started.
Pahokee was penalized for 30
yards before the kickoff, a rare
occurrence that happens to any
team.
The referees called a 15-yard
penalty on the Blue Devils for
unsportsmanlike conduct as the
players crossed the 45-yard line
during their warm-up session.
After two of Pahokee's coach-
es disagreed with the referees on
the call, one of them was ejected
from the game.
It was not clear what the
heated exchange of words were,
but nonetheless, another 15-yard
penalty was issued to Pahokee.
That worked out in Jupiter's
favor, as the Blue Devils began the
game kicking off from their own
12-yard line.
The Warriors wound up scor-
ing on their first drive as senior
Ethan Jones (15 rushes, 45 yards)
scored on a 1-yard run with 5:51
in the first quarter.
But that's the only touchdown
Pahokee allowed, with their of-
fense scoring the next 34 points
of the game.
Blue Devils sophomore quar-
terback Emmanuel Perez threw
the first touchdown pass of his
career, a 19-yard completion to
Dexter Holmes (two receptions,
29 yards).
That score came with 50.3 sec-
onds left in the first quarter.
From there on out, it was all
Pahokee as Vincent Smith (16
rushes, 156 yards) scored his first
touchdown of the game, a 5-yard
run.
That score, which came with


6:45 left in the second quarter, put
Pahokee up 13-7.
The touchdown drive was set
up by a fumble recovery from
Doral Willis earlier in the quarter.
Brandin Hawthorne was cred-
ited with the forced fumble on
Jupiter.
Nu'Keese Richardson (8-for-
13, 161 yards and two touch-
downs) threw an 80-yard score to
De'Joshua Johnson with 4:33 left
in the half.
The second half, which began
with Pahokee leading 21-7, was
highlighted by a 40-yard score by
Smith with 7:27 left in the third.
The Michigan-bound running
back would have had a third rush-
ing touchdown later in the second
half, a 73-yard run.
But that was called back due
to the referees ruling that a Paho-
kee player committed a holding
penalty.
Though the infraction cost
Pahokee 10 yards, it still didn't
stop them from scoring again
as Richardson heaved a 31-yard
touchdown pass to Johnspn (five
catches, 132 yards) with 5:30 left
in the game.
With less than three minutes
to go in the fourth, Pahokee
linebacker Norman Griffith was
flagged for unsportsmanlike con-
duct, which led to his ejection
from the game.
The referees ruled that Griffith
blocked a Jupiter player out of
bounds before the whistled blow-
ed on a Warriors punt play.
According to high school rules,
if a player is flagged for unsports-
manlike conduct twice in one
game, then he is automatically
ejected.
Griffith, who would have been
suspended for Pahokee's next two
games, was regrettably shot and
killed just hours after the home-
coming game in Belle Glade.
The game ended in a 37-yard
field goal by Jupiter kicker Doug
Parkley.
"There were some strange
things that occurred in this game,"
said Jupiter head coach Charlie
Persson. "We've been shooting
ourselves in the foot with the pen-
alties we had.
"I'm proud of how our kids
stepped up, but you can't come
to Pahokee starting two freshmen
and seven sophomores," he con-
tinued.


"Pahokee's players are very
relaxed and they know how to
overcome penalties, but we're
not good enough to do that."
Surprisingly, Jupiter had more
penalties than Pahokee (11-10)
but the Blue Devils racked up
133 yards, compared to 82 for the
Warriors.
Neither coach commented on
the conduct on the referees for
the game.
According to FHSAA rules, if
any coach who talks negatively
about referees is subject to a
$1,000 fine.
Pahokee (4-0) travels to Byrnes
in what could be the most impor-
tant game in the history of this
storied program.
"We're gonna have to tackle
better against Byrnes if we want
to win," Thompson said.
"If we continue to play aggres-
sive on offense and defense, then
we can come out with a win, but
we must cut back on our mental
mistakes."
The Blue Devils, who are at
their best when facing adversity,
will put up a tough fight against
the nation's top-ranked team, ac-
cording to USA Today.
The loss of Griffith should en-
able Pahokee to play with a sense
of urgency that they've always
had, but on a higher level than


ever before.
Fans should not be surprised
if Pahokee leaves Byrnes with an
upset victory.
Pahokee, which finished last
season as USA Today's No. 6 team
in the nation, will likely be nation-
ally-ranked again with a-win.
The game will be televised at
7:30 p.m. on the ESPNU network
and can be seen on the web at
espn360.com.

Notices for this week's
Glades Day, Glades
Central games
Glades Day, who is coming off
a bye week, will be traveling to
Okeechobee tomorrow night in a
gut-check contest for them.
The Gators (2-1) must over-
come the Brahmans running
game, led by senior Lonnie Pry-
or.
The Okeechobee running back
almost single-handedly beat them.
last year, rushing for 302 yards in
a 26-3 victory on Sept. 28, 2007 in
Belle Glade.
If Glades Day does that, then
they should win this game and
go 3-1.
As for Glades Central (3-0),
they will be playing Dwyer on Sat-
urday, Oct. 4 at Palm Beach Cen-
tral High School.
It was determined by the
School District of Palm Beach
County that the Raiders home-
coming game would not be
played in Belle Glade due to the
latest rash of shootings in the
area.
Last season, the Raiders won
a close game against the Panthers
by a score of 14-7.
But the outcome looks to be
somewhat different, as Glades
Central, the Associated Press No.
1 team in Class 3A, should win
this time by a larger margin, even
though Dwyer (3-0) is considered
the state's No. 2 team in Class 4A,
according to AP.
The game between two of
Palm Beach County's top teams
will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the
neutral site.
Staff eWriter Nail Toblas can be
reached at ntoblas@newszap.com.


"They showed a total team ef-
fort, I hope they make the playoffs
because they deserve to."
The Terriers (3-0) go on the
road today to play Boca Raton
Christian in their quest to remain
undefeated before district play
begins next Friday night against


St. John Neumann.
Moore Haven, who is in Dis-
trict 6-Class IA, must win at least
two of its three district games to
make the playoffs for the first time
since 2003.

CHANGE BEGINS AT THE TOP!
Dear Friends,
I would like to thank the Board of County
Commissioners for holding the 2008 county
millage rate at 6.5 at last week's meeting to ''
give some tax relief to our taxpayers. Our
Property Appraiser was at that meeting urg-
ing the commissioners to reduce the tax rate.
My question is, where was she when we
needed answers last year? The citizens of
Hendry County'attended a commission meet-
ing last year looking for answers. She was *
invited to explain and defend the property val-
ues. There was no representation from her or
her office. Then again, it wasn't an election year with opposition.
I'd like to thank you again for supporting me in the Primary Election. I
look forward to meeting and making new friends while campaigning before
the General Election. I have received a lot of phone calls'and e-mails and
I was happy to respond and explain to your satisfaction.
Thank you and God Bless,
Your Frien4

Griffith
Continued From Page 1
kee's homecoming game against
Jupiter concluded.
In the wake of the news, resi-
dents and those close to the vic-
tim suspected foul play from a
gang in Belle Glade.
However, no suspects have
been identified at this time.
"We're actively working the
shooting right now," said PBSO
Lieutenant Mike Wallace of the
county's Violent Crimes Task
Force.
"These shootings become a
priority very quickly, especially if
it involves a young person," he
continued.
"We're working as diligently
as we can."
Ilisha Griffith, Norman's older
sister, said that she called police
hours after the incident, only to
find out that she wouldn't get a
response back that day.
"I still haven't heard from the
sheriff's office," Ilisha said on
Monday afternoon, as she tried to
fight back tears.
"I don't think I'll ever hear
from them."
Norman's parents declined to
comment on the shooting.


Teammates are greatly
affected by tragedy
Among those affected by the
shooting, the victim's teammates,
including De'Joshua Johnson,
took the loss the hardest.
De'Joshua broke out in tears
when he learned about the shoot-
ing.
The junior wide receiver, a
close friend of the victim, re-
ceived numerous text messages
and phone calls regarding the in-
cident.
De'Joshua's first text came
at about 2:20 a.m. that Satur-
day from Zachary Allen, another
teammate.
"Zach texted me and then he
said, 'Hey man, Pooh got shot and
killed at a party in Belle Glade,'"
De'Joshua remembered.
"I was like, 'No, man, you ly-
ing,'" he continued. "Then Zach
called me and started crying."
On the morning of Sept. 27,
De'Joshua and a host of his team-
mates, including Raheem Buxton,
were completely distraught over
the loss of Griffith, trying to make
sense of what happened.
Raheem was unable to speak
about the incident, as he wept on
Saturday at his home.
Raheem's father, Lonnie Eady,
consoled him as he advised his


son to look at the situation in per-
spective.
"If you want to make it through
this, you better pray," Mr. Eady
told Raheem.
"Pooh gone, there's nothing
we can do about it," he contin-
ued.
"We all love him and we're
gonna miss him, but we need to
trust in Gbd so He could see us
through and help us make it."
Mr. Eady realizes that the play-
ers did not expect for the incident
to occur.
"All of this done fell in the kids'
lap," Mr. Eady said, noting that
Raheem and Norman were like
brothers.
"But I know if these kids come
together as whole, pray and trust
in the Lord, I promise you they'll
make it on a day-to-day basis."
Later that afternoon, the Pa-
hokee football team gathered
around the Herbert Hoover Dike
to memorialize the loss of their
fallen hero.
"We're not thinking about
football right now," the Pahokee
head coach said. "We're just
thinking about Norman's family
and our football family."
Thompson, who appreciates
his time with the players, talked
about the times when Norman
would come to his home and in-


teract with his children and fam-
ily, having a fun time.
"I think of how lucky I am to
be sharing my life with the guys,"
Thompson said of all his players.
"I can't relate to everything
these guys are going through, but
I hope I can bring some stability
and leadership to their lives."
Norman as a leader
Jonathan Johnson, the Paho-
kee Blue Devils offensive coordi-
nator, remembered the linebacker
as one of the team's best players
over the past two seasons.
"Last year, Norman became
a leader and was happy about
it," Johnson said. "A lot of kids
looked up to him because of his
emotions.
"With Pooh, he was born to
be a leader," he continued. "He
wasn't a big talker, he just led by
example."
Norman, who had five sacks
with only four regular season
games in, received offers from a
host of Division I colleges, includ-
ing Ball State and Iowa State.
Ironically, the linebacker was
reportedly scheduled to take a
college visit to Iowa State last Sat-
urday.
"I never thought of him as a
negative kid," Johnson said about
Norman.


"He always gave you more
than what was asked of him."
Carlos Lammons, a teammate
and one of Norman's best friends,
said that he always did the right
thing during games.
"Pooh always went all out and
everyone followed his lead," Car-
los said.
"He lifted people up when they
were down and he brought the
best out of you as a teammate,"
he continued.
"Pooh always had a lot of en-
ergy."
Monday's practice proved to
be a tough going for the Pahokee
football team, as Johnson said
that it will take some time for his
players to get over the tragedy.
"We haven't been upbeat the
past few days at practice because
we lost a friend, a leader and a
brother," the offensive coordina-
tor said.
"For Pooh to be gone, it has
weighed on everyone."
As the Blue Devils fly to South
Carolina tonight, they'll carry a
heavy heart in preparation for the
game against Byrnes, S.C. -- the
top-ranked team in the nation.
Future plans
When the Pahokee Blue Devils
return from South Carolina this
weekend, they'll have some time


to rest before the memorial takes
place on Monday evening.
According to Ariel Alejo, the
Pahokee High School principal,
the vigil for Norman will convene
at 7 p.m. in the school's audito-
rium.
"We're all very saddened by
this tragedy," Mr. Alejo said. "We
have counselors in place to pro-
vide assistance to our students."
The funeral for Norman will
be held on Saturday, Oct. 11.
The location and time of the
service had not been determined
at press time.
"We're praying for Norman
and his family," the Pahokee High
principal said. "Norman was a
great kid, we miss him."

Violence
Continued From Page 1
Of the latest incidents in the
Glades, three of them involved
young people, which has prompt-
ed locals to formulate a plan to
take immediate action in efforts
to solving the ongoing problems
in the area.
Addressing locals on
the latest shootings
Simon Barnes IV, the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO) captain of District 13-
Belle Glade, addressed the tragic
death of Norman to those at the
meeting.
He clearly stated the impor-
tance of unity in the area, which
resonated with many locals.
"The biggest thing we have to
understand is that it's not a city
vs. city, football team vs. football
tearfi thing," Captain Barnes told
the attendees.
"If anything, the three city
communities are stronger than
the coast will ever know.
+ "Mr. Griffith was a 100 percent
innocent kid, he tried to walk
away from the situation," he con-
tinued.
'"There,was nothing else he
cold have done."
Captain Barnes said those
outside the Glades area need to
know that the all three cities are
'strong and together.'
"The teams need to come
together as a send-off to the Pa-
hokee game against Byrnes," the
PBSO Captain said.
"It cannot be shown there is
a weakness, I know these three
communities are together."
Pahokee's nationally televised
game, to be shown on the ESPNU
network, will be aired tomorrow
night at 7:30 p.m.
In light of the shootings that
took place over the past year,
Captain Barnes revealed that the
sheriff's office has been unable
to solve six homicides in Belle
Glade.
"Eyewitnesses need to come
forward for us to solve these
crimes," Captain Barnes said.
"It may come down to trust,
but in order to let the hoodlums
know that it's not going to be tol-
erated, the communities need to
come together."
The captain suggested to lo-
cals that they conduct a march to
demonstrate a sense of unity in
efforts to combat criminal activity
in the area.
He noted that cities such as
Lake Worth and Riviera Beach
have used the march demonstra-
tions in the past, which has led to
some action taken in the coastal
municipalities.
In Lake Worth, the sheriff's of-
fice has just taken over the city's
operations, with former District
Five commander Rolando Silva
being sworn in as the District 14
captain on Monday morning.
In Riviera Beach, efforts have
been made to implement cur-
fews on children and a saggyy


pants' law, which bans anyone
from wearing their pants below
their waists in public.
These actions have report-
edly been in effect for some time
now.
Possibility of a curfew
Belle Glade Mayor Steve Wil-
son brought up the idea of hav-
ing a curfew for children and
teenagers, which he claims may
be necessary to reduce crime in
the area.
"We don't want our cities to
be held hostage, but we don't
want to be scared walking the
streets, either," the Belle Glade
mayor said.
"It's a real sensitive issue, but
the curfew needs to be in place."
Wayne Whitaker, the mayor of
Pahokee, said he and his fellow
city commissioners have been
considering the possibility of a
curfew for some time now.
He suggested that all three cit-
ies take a unified effort in the ap-
proach.
"It would be nice if we could
all be on the same page," the Pa-
hokee mayor said.
"We're in an emergency here,
we gotta move and put this on the
front burner."
Glen Torcivia, the city attorney
for Belle Glade and the Tri-Cities,
advised all three municipalities
to pass an ordinance for the pro-
posed curfew to take place.
Typically, two readings need to
take place prior to the passing of
an ordinance, according to Attor-
ney Torcivia.
"You all need to decide what
the hours are going to be," the at-
torney told the commissioners of
the three cities.
"You all have to be united on
what the curfews are going to
be."
If the curfew does go into ef-
fect, it may be possible that the
curfews will be at 9 p.m. from
Sunday through Thursdays and
at 11 p.m. on Fridays and Satur-
days.
"If we are going to rush this
through emergency, then we
need to listen to all our citizens
before we make sweeping chang-
es," said Mary Kendall, the Belle
Glade vice-mayor.
"Rather than to blanket it, we
need to look at the entire situa-
tion."
Before the vote took place, the
Belle Glade mayor revealed that
a comprehensive package is in
the planning stages, which will
include at least 20 items.
The package was not dis-
cussed in detail at the emergency
meeting.
"We're not trying to rush any-
thing," the Belle Glade mayor
said.
"What is there we want our
kids to do?" the Belle Glade vice-
mayor asked aloud.
"The only way I could support
this js that if we're going to have a
comprehensive package."
Allie Biggs, a Pahokee city com-
missioner, expressed concern
about the seemingly easy access
to children obtaining weapons.


"What's going on?" Com-
missioner Biggs asked. "Captain
Barnes, help me out here."
"In order to prevent what's
going on, it takes parents to con-
trol their homes," Captain Barnes
said.
"Parents have to make it clear
it's their home," the captain con-
tinued.
"They have to let their kids
know they don't own anything if
they (the parents) are paying for
it."
The commissioners of the Tri-
Cities passed a motion to consider
the possibility of having a curfew,
with only Pahokee Commissioner
Biggs and Belle Glade Vice-Mayor
Kendall voting against the action.

Finding a solution
Lester Finney pointed to lack
of money as a key problem to the
rash of criminal activity occurring
in the area.
He said that it can 'make peo-
ple do some real stupid things.'
"We're overlooking the very
things that's keeping us in line,"
Mr. Finney said.
"Our children are like a yard,
the longer you allow it to go, the
harder it is to maintain it."
A young man, who was not
identified, agreed with the senti-
ment.
"We are looking for police
containment as opposed to eco-
nomic opportunity," the young
man said.
"These brothers and sisters
need some money in their pock-
ets and food in their refrigerator.
"What motivates them in or-
der to make money?" the young
man asked aloud.
"There's a lot.of things we're
not doing to address crime, some
of their households are without
two parents.
"Curfews won't curb the ap-
petite for adequate housing," the
man continued.
"It won't stop these kids from
getting guns."
Richard 'Tadpole' Johnson, a
longtime Pahokee resident, dis-
agreed with the stance taken by
the two men.
"We were dirt poor, money
didn't make us start killing peo-
ple," Mr. Johnson said.
"Let's not give the officers a
free pass to take our children
away," Mr. Johnson continued,
pleading with everyone at the
meeting.
"Parents, start taking back
your kids."
But perhaps the mostwell-


received comments came from
Mr. Williams, who said that each
person needs to look within
themselves before changes can
be made.
"Quit looking for someone
else to solve our problem," Mr.
Williams said passionately at the
meeting.
"The solution to keep a whole
lot of kids out of trouble is to cre-
ate some jobs to stimulate the
economy," Mr. Williams contin-


ued.
"There's a mindset here and it
has to be challenged.
"Money is not the answer, a
job is not the answer, but your
mindset has to be different," he
addressed to everyone.
"So a man thinketh, so is he."
Michael Jackson, the liaison
for Palm Beach County Commis-
sioner Jess Santamaria, urged ev-
eryone to stop talking about the
problems, but doing something


about it.
"I encourage the tri-cities to
not drop the ball on this one," Mr.
Jackson said.
The next Tri-Cities meeting is
scheduled for Wednesday, Oct.
15 in South Bay.

Shot

blood trail was observed by de-
tectives, but the exact location of
the incident could not be deter-
mined.
It is not yet known for .sure
whether or not the shooting is
gang-related.
However, it has been widely
speculated in the community that
a group called the Jack Boys, a
gang in Belle Glade, may have
had something to do with it.
Detectives are reportedly work-
r (


ing the case in their quest to find
the suspect, who is unknown at
this time.
The incident reportedly took
place in the 600's block of West
Avenue A at approximately 3
p.m., just 10 minutes after stu-
dents were released from Glades
Central High School last Friday.
Anyone who has pertinent in-
formation regarding the shooting
can call the sheriff's office at ei-
ther 688-3400 or Crime Stoppers
at 1-800-689-TIPS.
