Talk on race and politics


Naji Tobias.and Nena
Bolan
The Sun
BELLE GLADE -- The opening
question at the forum in Belle
Glade on race and politics fo-
cused on why it is so hard to talk
about race.
A panel of five speakers did
their best to crack this difficult is-
sue. They met at the Palm Beach
Community College campus
Oct. 7 with a facilitator.
The panel had a diverse an-
cestry, and even though race,


gender or religion should not be
signaled out, it may be significant
to point out the actual ethnic ori-
gin of each member.
Considering that the audience
on that day was able to see an-
cestral"diversity, it may help the
reader, to be able to clarify and
identify the uniqueness of each
speaker.
'Each, individual brought a
personal perspective to the for-
mation of his or her answer.
There were three women
and two men. Cartheda Mann


is an African-American woman,
Aimee Cernicharo is a Cuban-
American woman, and Jean
Simon., is a Haitian-American
woman.
David Goodlet is a Cauca-
sion-American man, and Maged
Mutwaley is a Muslim-American
man. The facilitator, Barbara
Cheives is an African-American
woman.,
So, what makes it so hard to
talk about race?
Jean Simon mentioned that it
is fine to be different, but judging

a person by color is not alright.
"When you talk about it, it,
brings the past back. We should
talk about it more often," said
Ms. Simon.
Aimee Cernicharo brought
up the observation that conflict
can actually lead to a resolution,
and you may not come to an un-
derstanding unless you begin to
talk about it.
"To me,, conflict leads to ac-
tual resolution," said. Ms. Cer-
nicharo.
David Goodlet mentioned


that the environment we live in
is a factor, too.
A second question posed to
the panel asked about their views
on how race has played a role in
this presidential election. Maged
Mutvaley, a Republican, plans
to vote for Obama, a Democrat.
He believes the United States is
successful because of its people
with diverse backgrounds.
"Obama has a heart of knowl-
edge. He'll surround himself with

Fallen Blue Devil laid to rest


Final tribute paid to
Norman Griffith at
the Oct. 11 funeral

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Endless thoughts
have resonated on the tragic
death of Pahokee Blue' Devils
linebacker Norman Griffith Jr.
It played' a central role in last
Saturday's funeral .and burial
services for the 18-year-old.
In what was a mostly som-
ber atmosphere at the fully
packed Pahokee High School
gymnasium, many tears were
shed and some were just in-


consolable.
The four-hour long funeral
was filled with many individual
and group tributes paid to the
fallen hero, primarily in the
form of song and poetry.
Fittingly, students from the
Class of 2009 had the most
heartfelt words, which touched
the hearts and minds of those
in attendance.
.After Andre Brown sang a
moving rendition of Marvin
Sapp's 'Never Would Have'
Made It Withbut You,' the se-
nior class presented a resolu-
tion to the Griffith family.
"Again, the human spirit has
taken flight at the call of the
Heavenly Father to that man-


sion prepared from the founda-
tion of the Earth by an all-wise
and loving Gpd," the Class of
2009 statement said.
"We pen this resolution to
express our heartfelt sympathy
to the family of our classmate
and friend."
SThe resolution, which the
Griffith family received in the
form of a.plaque, will be in the
Class of 2009 record book, ac-
cording to class officials.
Following that presentation,
a host of individuals recited
moving poems in Norman's
honor.
But none was more power-

Clewiston Edges 20-19 win


Submitted photo/Jen BarwicK


Tiger Keon Ward sets sail for open territory.


By Jeff Barwick
The Tigers squeaked by the
upstart Crusaders in a key district
game at Sam Budnyk Stadium,
improving their record to 4-2
overall and 1-0 in District 2A-6.
Clewiston entered the game
with two key starters out due to
injuries and quarterback Isandro
Marquez and center/linebacker
Dillon Irey dressed but held out
due to bruises.
Late in the contest, both were
called into duty and were instru-
mental in the comeback win.
The victory was sealed with
2:34 left in the contest when quar-
terback Isandro Marquez swept
the right side for a 7-yard touch-
down on a fourth and goal.
Marquez, other than punting
and placekicking duties, sat out
most of the game nursing a sore
shoulder.
Afterwards he said, "I. was
begging Coach Roth the whole
game to play and I finally got the
chance. We called a roll out pass
but both receivers were covered
so I just pulled it down and went
for it."
Clewviston tailback Darris
\ughes scored the other Tiger
\chdowns on a nifty pair of 80
Y.g jaunts, finishing the game
A' w Oards on 21 carries.
A. ` seeing double duty all
nigt',rF, Hughes said, "We
had ruo. .rible days of practice
and came., ,.er flat. On that
winning driVi., front line went
to work and gAthe job done."
The Crusad4 took the open-
ing kickoff and nrched 77 yards
on 10 short runs nd three pass
completions and eang up over 8
minutes off the clock
Tailback Lee Willi5ns got the
score on a yard dive. Kkker Bre'-
dan Gibbons' effort was blocled
by Tiger defensive end ATam
Trevino and that proved to ly the
margin of victory. It was Tre-ino's
third block of the season.
After a touchback on tie kick-
off, Clewiston wasted nc time as
Hughes took a handoff off the left
side and ripped up the sidelines,
for an 80-yard score. Marquez
split the uprights on the point af-
ter to give the Tigers a 7-6 lead.
Late in the second period, the
Crusaders were aided by three
Tiger penalties as they drove 64
yards on 9 snaps with Williams
running for the last 19 yards.
Gibbons added the point after
and the half ended with the Tigers
trailing, 13-7.
Clewiston took the second half
kickoff at their 20 after another
touchback by Gibbons, a kicker
certainly headed for a college
football team.
Again, the first snap saw
Hughes rumbling up the middle,
veering to the outside and racing
for another 80-yard touchdown
run.
I Marquez tacked on the extra
point to slide the Tigers to a 14-13
advantage.
Gibbons put the Crusaders


back on top late in the period with
a 50-yard field goal and added to
the cushion when he hit another
field goal, this one from 44 yards
out.
The Tigers, after yet another
Gibbons touchback on the kick-
off, began at their 20.
Tiger Coach Joe Roth then
inserted a banged-up Irey into
the center position to bolster the
blocking.
. Hughes rattled off 5 straight
runs, the last for a 32-yard gain.
On the next play, back-up
quarterback Jonathan 'Brown
had difficulty with the snap but fi-
nally got the ball into the hands of
back-up tailback Keon Ward who
bounced outside and raced to the
Crusader 1-yard stripe before be-
ing shoved out of bounds.
Two Hughes' runs into the line
provided nothing and then the Ti-
gers were penalized five yards for
illegal procedure.
Marquez had slipped into the
game and rolled to his right look-
ing for either the fullback or tight
end but both were covered.
He then tucked the ball away
and headed straight up field and
collided with three Crusaders as
he crashed into the end zone with
only 2:34 left in the game.
The Tigers went for two points
on the conversion and the pass
failed but tIkey- finally were 'acck
on top, 20-49.
The Crusaders tried desper-
ately to get within field goal range
for Gibbons. A stout Tiger defense
and two costly penalties shut
down the drive and they turned
the ball over on downs.
From there, Clewiston ran out
the clock.'
Tiger defensive end Adam
Trevino led the effort with 10
tackles and the key blocked extra
point.
Defensive back Damian Smith,
linebackers Duke Ewan and Fred
Washington each had 5 solo tack-
les.
Smith intercepted a Crusader
pass and returned it 32 yards on
the last play of the first half.
He also made a picture perfect
pass defense to stop the Crusad-
ers on their desperation drive late
in the game.
Washington had a fumble re-
covery to snuff a Cardinal New-
man drive at the end of the open-
ing quarter.
Clewiston coach Joe Roth was
relieved the game was over.
He said, "We came in with
four key starters out and we need
to get healthy with our open date
coming up. Isandro showed to-
night why he is one of our cap-
tains. That was a gutsy run he
made to win the game."
Clewiston now has a week off
to nurse the bumps and bruises.
They'll host Pope John Paul II on
Oct. 24 in another District 2A-6
game.
Tailback Darris Hughes now
has 1,260 yards rushing on the
season and is the second leading

Glades Day scores Taylor-made victory


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE Glades Day.'s
homecoming game against Evan-
gelical Christian likely won't soon
be forgotten.
In the Gators 43-36 home vic-
tory over the Sentinels, it was an
eighth-grader that led the way in
this unpredictable contest.
For starters, no one at Gator
Field thought that it would prove
to be close game.
After all, in Glades Day's last
three home meetings with Evan-
gelical Christian, all wins, the
combined scdre was 108-0.
In, addition to that, Evangelical
Christian wasn't even in the mix
for last year's District 6-1A play-
offs, finishing, with a 1-2 district
record.
But Glades Day needed a ca-
reer game from Kelvin Taylor,
who is the son of Glades Central
alum and current Jacksonville
Jaguars running back Fred Taylor.
The eighth-grader had 26 car-
ries for 228 yards and three touch-
downs in the District 6-1A opener
for both teams.
That makes it Taylor's fifth
consecutive game in which he
has rushed for more than 100
yards.
For an eighth-grader, that's
nothing short of impressive.
He scored Glades Day's sec-
ond touchdown of the game, a
2-yard run with 4:02 left in the
opening quarter.
In addition, Taylor accounted
for both of the Gators second
half touchdowns, which included
a 2-yard run with 7:14 left in the
third quarter and a 1-yard run to
end the quarter.
"Bay-Bay (Kelvin Taylor)
came out and played like he usu-
ally does," said Deandre Jackson,
Glades Day's top wide receiver.
"He ran the ball hard and showed
some maturity as a running
back."
if Taylor made the difference
in th? running game, Jackson did
the same thing on the passing
front.',

high s en receptions for 160
yards, ought two touchdown

,e.
Jackson .caught his second
/uchdown on a 15-yard pass
/om Schlecter with 3:26 left in
ne first half.
,Schlecter was 12-for-16 with
215 passing yards and two touch-
downs for.the game.
Pete Walker, Glades Day's
head coach, was thoroughly im-
pressed with the performances of
boh Jackson and Schlecter.
'Deandre did well .after the
cathd, played both ways and has
an 8l-around game," Walker said
of te Suncoast transfer, who
alsoogged in time as a defensive
bacli "Bo had a great game, .got
receivers open, did a good job
mixig things up for us."
Wlker may be proud of the
fact tat Glades Day had 24 first
down in the game, while scor-
ing or their first six drives, which
sparid for three quarters.
Hover; Glades Day needed
all of tlit offensive output to win
this gar-., as the Gators defense
had lols, trouble stopping Sen-
tinels julor quarterback Colton
Lynch.
Lynch T 8 carries, 228 yards,
I TD; 8-16 passing, 126 yards,
3 TDs) was iust too much for
Glades Day's defense to handle,
scoring on a 37.yard run with 6:10
left in the first.
Evangelical's first touchdown,
which was hi answer to Jack-
son's 16-yard scoring catch about
two minutes easier, made it 7-6 in
favor of Glades Day.
The Sentinels led the game
up, 14-14, after Lynch threw
an 18-yard touchdown pass to
sophomore wide receiver An-
drew Chebator with 55 seconds
left in the first. It preceded a suc-
cessful two-point conversion
run by Lynch. That scoring drive
answered Taylor's 2-yard touch-
down run, which put Glades Day
up 14-6. ,
Evangelical stayed close
throughout the first half, pull-
ing within one point on a 5-yard


score by running back Jonathan
Skaff with 2:02 left in the second.
Glades Day led 21-20 at that
point before senior Jarrett Swaby
(six carries, 59 yards) extended
the lead on a. 3-yard touchdown
run with 55 seconds left in the
half. Swaby's score put the Gators
up 28-20 at halftime.
But after it seemed like Glades
Day would pull .away in the third


quarter, Evangelical .made the
fourth quarter very interesting.
Down 43-20, after Glades Day
freshman Tanner Redish loses a'
fumble with 6:14 left, the Senti-
0nels started at their own 40 yard
line.
Lynch, who made a 23-yard
run for a first down on the scoring
drive, threw a 37-yard touchdown
to Skaff (four catches, 92 yards,
two TDs) with 5:35 left.
The score, now 43-28 in favor
of Glades Day, changed again as
the duo hooked up for a 41-yard
strike with just 2:30 left.
After Evangelical converted
on a two-point conversion, they
elected to go for the onside kick.
Fortunately for the Glades Day
faithful, the Gators recovered the
kick and ran out the game clock.
"You could see the caliber
of athletes we have and what
Glades Day has," said Evangelical
head coach Brian Lynch, whose
team has only three seniors and
19 overall;
"Glades Day's athletes appear
to be superior compared to us.
"But we fought and battled
them to a really close game," he
continued. "We are the strongest
little team I've ever seen, I can't
take anything away from them."
Walker was obviously not
pleased with how his defense
performed, as Glades Day al-
lowed 307 total rushing yards to
Evangelical.
"#12 (Lynch) is a great ath-
lete, we didn't tackle him well,"
Walker said.
"We need to work on our
tackling and get better at it," the
Glades Day coach continued.
"Defensively, we're not playing
well right now."
Glades Day (3-2; 1-0 District
6-1A) has allowed more than 300
rushing yards for the third con-
secutive game.
Tomorrow night, they'll be at
home against American Heritage-
Delray Beach, who is the defend-
ing Class 1A state champions.
The Gators, who have lost two
straight games to the Stallions,
hope to avenge last year's 33-8
regular season loss and 28-7 state.
semifinal defeat.
Fortunately for Glades Day,
they won't have to face Justin
Feagin, who single-handedly
torched their defense in both
games last season.

o "We must control the ball on
offense and tackle on defense if
we want to beat American Heri-
tage," Walker said. ."It's up for
grabs, either team can win on
Friday."
Pahokee 42, Melbourne
Central Catholic 3: Emmanuel


Perez, starting for the first time,
was 13-for-19 passing with 128
yards and two touchdowns in the
win.
The sophomore's touchdown
passes went to junior wide receiv-
er Zachary Allen (three catches,
61 yards) and senior Nu'Keese
Richardson (two catches, seven
yards).
Pahokee's other scores, which
came on runs, were from Vincent
Smith (17 rushes, 182 yards, 3
TDs) and Richardson (two rush-
es, 16 yards, 1 TD).
The Blue Devils, who had their
32-game winning streak snapped
on Oct. 3 against Byrnes, S.C.
(school record), limited the Hus-
tlers to eight total first downs and
161 total yards.
Pahokee (5-1; 2-0 in District
7-2B play) is off this weekend.
. They won't play again until
Oct. 24 against John Carroll, a
road game.
Glades Central 35, Cardi-
nal Gibbons 30: Raiders quar-
terback Leron 'L.J.' Thomas (20-
for-31 passing, 284 yards, 4 TDs)
came through in the clutch for the
second game in a row.
Only this time, he threw a
game-winning 3-yard touchdown
pass to Fred Pickett with 28 sec-
onds left in the fourth quarter.
The clutch play came after
Glades Central was down 30-28
late in the game.
That's Thomas' fourth game-
winning pass this season, which
includes a 17-yard pass to James
West in the Raiders 6-0 quadruple
overtime win over Dwyer on Oct.
4. As usual, after Glades Central
wins a close game, it ends with a
big defensive play.
Antwon Chisolrh (five rushes,
47 yards, I TD) caught the game-
ending interception after a Hail
Mary attempt from the Redskins.
Glades Central's other touch-
downs came from Rantavious
Wooten (four catches, 94 yards,
1 TD), Kevin Benjamin (three
catches, 75 yards, 1 TD) and An-
tonio McCloude (five catches, 16
yards, 1 TD; six rushes, 31 yards).
Surprisingly, the District 15-3A
opener for both teams was close
throughout on the strength of
Redskins running game, led by
Dareyone Chance.
The Redskins running back
finished with 21 rushes for 124-
yards and a touchdown.
Cla.cde Central (6-0; 1-0 in Dis-
tnct- 15 -'-A play is--off-tom0T roW
night. The Raiders play their next
game Oct. 24 on the road against
Archbishop McCarthy.
St. John Neumann 25,
Moore Haven 6: The other
District 6-1A opener did not go
as planned for the Terriers, as a
bench-clearing brawl and two
rain delays played key roles in


their defeat.
According to published re-
ports, after the brawl, which
wasn't discussed in detail, two
Moore Haven players we're eject-
ed from the game.
That played well into St. John
Neumann's hands, as last year's
District 6-1A rtnner-up roughed
up Moore Haven quarterback
Dalton Britt, who was sacked four
times in the game.
Britt (9-for-26 passing, 141
yards, 1 TD), was picked off five
times, including a 53-yard inter-
ception return for a touchdown
by Celtics defensive back Austin
Nelz, who caught two INTs in the
.game.
That defensive score was the
last one in the district game.
In all fairness, Moore Haven
was down 13-6 going into the
fourth quarter, so they could have
easily came back and won the
their home game. '
But St. John Neurpann did an
excellent job in .shutting down
Fred Hall, who finished with
a season-low 13 carries for 14
yards.
Overall, the Terriers running
game was anemic, finishing with
-23 rushing yards.
Moore Haven (4-1; 0-1 in Dis-
trict 6-1A play) won its first four
regular season on the strength of
Hall's performances.
The junior's four-game streak
of 100-yard running games was
snapped in the loss.
About the only thing that the
Celtics couldn't stop was Terriers
wideout Xavier Fagan, who fin-
ished with seven catches for 125
yards and a touchdown.
Fagan, who now has 624 re-
ceiving yards in just five games,
is the state's No. 2 receiver, ac-
coridng to MaxPreps Florida. He
is just 19 yards shy of overtak-
ing Sebring's Devin Clarke (643
yards) for the state lead. The of-
fense for St. John Neumann (2-3;
1-0 in District 6-1A play) was led
by Will Affleck, who rushed for
69 yards on 22 carries. He scored
both of the Celtics rushing touch-
downs, which put them up 13-0
in the first quarter.
Moore Haven crept to within
seven points after Fagan's 28-yard
touchdown grab from Britt.
After no team scored in the
third quarter, St. John Neumann
put the Terriers to bed after quar-
_erb.a.ckAnthony Demao threw a
24-yard strike to Ashley Radcliffe.
Radcliffe accounted for 55 re-
ceiving yards (118 overall) against


the previously stingy Terrier de-
fense.
Moore Haven allowed 172
rushing yards and 227 overall.
Tomorrow night, the Terriers
will play their homecoming game
against Miami-Northwest Chris-
tian.


Next Friday will be a do-or-die
game for the Terriers as they play
on the road against Evangelical
Christian.
The loser of the Oct. 24 Moore,
Haven-Evangelical Christian game
will be eliminated from the Class
1A playoffs this season.

Glades Day School's Future
Farmers of America (FFA) mem-
bers, under the direction of Mi-
chael R. Miller and Bobbie Matos,
received their Yorkshire Cross and
Hampshire hogs Wednesday, Oct.
1. Twenty-five "Ag-Gators" are
raising hogs to show and sell at
the South Florida Fair in January.
Five students will raise their hogs
at home and twenty will be raised
on school grounds. The Glades
Day FFA Chapter also has three
chapter hogs that will be raised
by all members of the group. It
is planned that the chapter hogs
will be auctioned off by the "Ag-
Gators" at the school's annual
Mardi Gras fundraising banquet
in order to raise money for'their
group. The hogs were placed in
pins with a number above it and
then the students drew a number
out of a bag. The number they
drew was the number of the hog
that they are to care for, and raise.
Students paid one hundred ninety
dollars each to purchase their
hogs. They will also be spending
a minimum of forty-two dollars
a month in feed. Students must
care for and exercise their hogs

They are hoping to surpass that
number at the 2009 South Florida

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 Paho-
kee on Nov. 22, and end at Paho-
kee 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-

Lady Tigers add new staff


Submitted photo
The Clewiston Lady Tigers continues to sharpen their volleyball skills, posting impressive
wins against other area teams.


CLEWISTON -- New coaches
have been added to the staff of
the JV and Varsity girls' volleyball
teams this year and the players
have learned a lot under their di-
rection.
George Duckstein and Al Perry
join previous coach Dace Garza
in coaching the Lady Tigers.
Their record has already im-
proved-over past seasons.
The girls-are all getting more
detailed instruction on the game,
its positions, and ball handling;
encompassing serving, digging,
setting and spiking.
They are learning to bring their
new skills all together to control
the ball against their opponents.
The JV team is a sign of things
to come. The freshmen, sopho-
mores and juniors all competed


i.
in a JV tournament at Evangelical
Christian School in Ft. Myers Sept.
26 27, and ended up in 9th place
out of 18 teams.
They won 3 games out of 4,
even though they were missing
their Libero Samantha Ortiz (Jr)
who was in Texas competing in
the Miss Teen Latina Pageant.
The girls communicated well
and never gave up as they com-
peted against teams who most-
likely play volleyball all year round
in tournaments.
Varsity is showing much im-
provement in confidence and ball
handling skills.
After a few quirks on rotations
against Avon Park, the first game
of the year, the Tigers went on to
defeat Moore Haven, Pahokee,
Immokalee, and Gateway Char-


ter. Games lost are against strong
programs in Lake Placid, So. Ft
Myers, LaBelle and Lemon Bay.
The girls practice their new
skills regularly against the Clewis-
ton Boosters and other coaches
at CHS.
The games are fun to watch,
and the team would like to invite
you out to watch them play. It is a
$4 admission fee, and a conces-
sion stand is available.
The remaining schedule for
home games is:
Oct 14, LaBelle (5th place) JV
at 6pm.- Varsity at 7pm District
Game
Oct 16, Riverdale (1st place)
JV at 6pm Varsity at 7pm District
Game

FLW Stren Tournament


2009


INI Florida This information
is being released to eliminate any
misinformation that anglers .and
businesses may have received re-
garding the 2009 FLW Stren Tour-
nament.
It has been confirmed by Mr.
Bill Taylor, Director of Tournament
Operations for FLW Outdoors, in
order to meet scheduling and ad-


vertisihg responsibilities, the deci-
sion regarding the location of the
2009 FLW Stren Tournament had
to be made in June of 2008.
Due to the low lake levels at
that time, it was decided to hold
the tournament in Clewistbn in-
stead of Okeechobee as planned.
With uncertainty of lake levels
rising during this decision period,
even with low lake levels the an-
glers could still fish the rim canal
in Clewiston and the FLW Stren
Tournament would still remain in


the Lake Okeechobee area.
There were no other fac-
tors in that decision. For any
future concerns regarding
'scheduling of tournaments
or questions regarding tourna-
ments in Okeechobee County,

Is online banking Births


safe to rely on?


By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
A few weeks ago, I was listen-
ing to the radio and heard a dis-
cussion of online banking. You
may have heard it too. This partic-
ular discussion was about a study
released in July, 2008 that pointed
out flaws in some banks' online
security system. It was written by
researchers at the University of
Michigan.
That's why I'm writing this
column about security when you
are banking online. Some seniors
seem slow to bank online, but
some are finding banking online
liberating. Most employees pay-
checks are direct deposited and
you never see a live check. So-
cial security has mandated that
checks will be deposited directly
to our bank. Online banking is the
logical next step.
My reason for writing on this
topic is to reassure you that by
taking a few, careful steps you
will be able to bank safely online.
Enjoy the convenience of on-
line banking to:
* Move money from one
account to another.
Check your bank bal-
ance from home.
Keep watch on the daily
changes to your account,
and much more.
With a few precautions you
can bank safely online.
First, make sure your bank
has a clear statement or policy
regarding accessing your funds
with your computer. For exam-
ple, Bank of America has the fol-
lowing guarantee to protect you
the customer. "Our safe Internet
banking measures guarantee
$0. liability for any unauthorized
activity originating from Online
Banking, including Bill Payment."
You also must agree to notify the
bank if your password is ever sto-
len, within a certain time frame.
Second, pay attention and do
the following things when you
are banking online.
1.Before you. log on, make
sure you type the bank's internet
address into your browser's ad-
dress line. You should save this
safe address in your favorites for
use next time. Do not ever click a
link from an email that appears to
be from your bank. Thieves can
be pretty clever and set up a site
that is identical to your bank's.
2.When the page comes up

where you need to input your
user ID, look at the address line in
your browser. Look for https.L at
the beginning of the web address.
Notice the "s" that stands for se-
curity. For the duration of your
visit, the "s" should be visible in
that address. Question your bank
if it's not there.
3.Most banks and credit unions
now use a two-page sequence to
log into your financial informa-
tion. On the first page you will
be asked for your user ID, then
a second page appears with, a
picture. Only you and your bank
know which picture you chose
when you set up to bank online.
So when the picture appears, and
there is an "s" in the address at
the top of your browser address
line, it is safe to enter your pass-
word.
4.Passwords. A good pass-
word is at least eight characters
long with both lower case and
upper case letters. Put a number
somewhere in the middle. Don't
use, your child's name or your.
street address or phone number.
Those are too easily guessed.
Do use the name of your first el-
ementary school, for example,
or the make of your first car, with
a number in the middle. For ex-
ample, "Green84wood" is a good
password only because it follows
the rules and I'll remember it be-
cause it means something to me.
If it is never written down, no one
can steal it from you.
Don't bank at a public com-
puter. Save your banking tasks for
your home computer.
These same rules apply to
paying bills online, with one dif-
ference. There is no response pic-
ture and usually your user ID and
password are requested on the
same page. I pay all my bills on-
line including electric, insurance,
and mortgage.
So don't let the fear generated
'by yet another story about online
banking keep you from a com-
puter capability that is so conve-
nient. The Internet is not going
away and online banking and
bill paying will only increase. We
need to learn how to do it safely.
See you next Monday-happy
computing.

Mahoney responds to rumors


PALM BEACH GARDENS --
For the second time consecutive
campaign years, the Florida Con-
gressional District Race has been
rocked by a sex scandal.
ABC News reported Monday
that Congressman Tim Mahoney
(D-FL), whose predecessor Mark
Foley resigned in the wake of a
sex scandal, agreed to a $121,000
payment to a former mistress
who worked on his staff and was
threatening to sue him, according
to current and former members
of his staff who have been briefed
on the settlement, which involved
Mahoney and his campaign com-
mittee.
The ABC report continued:
"Mahoney, who is married, also
promised the woman, Patricia Al-
len, a $50,000 a year job for two
years at the agency that handles
his campaign advertising, the
staffers said."
The news report stated that Ms.
Allen and Mr. Mahoney reportedly
became involved during his 2006


campaign. "Following his elec-
tion in 2006, Allen was hired, at
taxpayers expense, to work on
Mahoney's Congressional staff
in Florida, at a yearly salary of
$36,000," the ABC web site report
stated. "After complaints about
the affair circulated in Wash-
ington, Allen was moved to the
campaign staff, the staffers say.
Friends of Allen told ABC News
that Allen sought to break off the
affair when. she learned Mahoney
was allegedly involved in other
extra-marital relationships at the
same time. Her friends say she
told them Mahoney threatened
that ending the relationship could
cost her the job."
Accompanied by his wife Ter-
ry, Congressman Tim Mahoney
(FL-16) issued the following state-
ment Tuesday: "I would have
come forward earlier but making
sure my family is ok is far more
important than any political ca-
reer. I have not violated my oath
of office, nor have I violated any


laws, and I consider this to be a
private matter.
"I take full responsibility for
my actions and the pain I have
caused my wife Terry and my
daughter, Bailey. No marriage is
perfect, but our private life is our
private life, and I am sorry that
these allegations have caused
embarrassment and heartache.
"I have requested that the
House Ethics Committee inves-
tigate the false allegations that
have been repeated in the press.
I want to be clear that I have not
misused campaign funds and I'm
confident that when all the facts
come to light, I will be cleared of
any wrongdoing.
"I think the people of my Dis-
trict know that I am a fighter and
I am not going to allow this story
coming out 20 days before an
election to change my resolve to
serve the people of the 16th Con-
gressional District. I have worked
hard and I am prepared to put
my faith in the people and ask for


their vote."
Mr. Mahoney, a Democrat, was
elected to Congress following the
scandal involving Republican
Congressman Mark Foley, whose
political career was destroyed in
2006 after teenage boys who had
served as Congressional Pages
claimed he made sexually-explicit
remarks to them online over in-
stant message. In the wake of the
scandal Mr. Foley resigned from
Congress and signed himself into
a rehabilitation clinic for alcohol-
ism.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement closed their investi-
gation on Sept. 19, citing insuffi-
cient evidence to pursue criminal
charges. However, Mr. Foley could
still face federal charges.
Congressional District 16 in-
cludes parts of Charlotte, Glades,
Hendry, Highlands, Okeechobee,
St. Lucie, Martin and Palm Beach
Counties.


U.S. Sugar cane harvest under way


Clewiston, FL October 10,
2008 U.S. Sugar began its 2008-
09 sugarcane harvest early in the
morning on October 3 and be-
gan processing the first railcars
of cane at the Clewiston Sugar
Factory at noon. The harvest was
delayed from its scheduled Oct.
1 start due to rain. The company
plans to harvest 170,396 acres,
yielding an estimated 6.3 million
tons of sugarcane and producing
13.8 million cwt. of raw sugar. The
Clewiston Refinery is projected to
produce 13.1 million cwt refined
sugar.
"Following an excellent repair
season at the raw sugar factory
and a successful start up at the
mill, we are looking forward to
getting this.crop underway," said
Robert Coker, senior vice presi-
dent, public affairs.
Completing a record-breaking
year, the Clewiston Refinery is
400,000 cwt. ahead of its targeted
production for the year. With the
Clewiston. Refinery operating at a
record-breaking pace, U.S. Sugar
imported additional raw sugar
from Mexico for the first time and
expanded its sugar sales. Since
May, more than 48,000 metric
-- tons of Mexican "estandar" sugar
has been delivered to the refinery
and processed.


Submitted photo
U.S. Sugar began its sugarcane harvest recently, beginning
operations on the morning of Oct. 3.


"It is important to note that
this imported sugar has enabled
us to process and sell additional
sugar -- above and beyond the
sugar sold contractually for this
year," said Robert Coker.
Coker said that statements
made by competitors regarding
the imported sugar are incorrect.
The company had produced and
delivered all' the sugar contracts


sold for 2007-08 season. Sugar
contracts are sold well in advance,
with nearly 90% of the sugar that
will be produced during the up-
coming season (starting in Octo-
ber) already sold.
The sugar refining and pack-
aging facility broke production
records at the end of August for
total refined production (12.91
million cwt), packaged produc-


tion (4.65 million cwt), and liquid
sugar production (634,222 cwt).
Previous records: total refined
production (11.34 cwt, set in 05-
06), packaged production (4.13
million cwt., set in 03-04) and
liquid sugar production (514,341
cwt, set in 06-07).
Three years ago, the Refinery's
capacity was expanded to enable
the facility to refine all of the com-
pany's raw sugar production.
Current capacity is 45,000 cwt. or
2250 tons per day. The expansion
along with the enhanced high
quality sugar 'produced by the
modernization and consolidation
of the Clewiston Mill and a stable
team of refinery employees are
credited with, the record produc-
tion.
U.S, Sugar's state-of-the-art
sugar factory in Clewiston is the
result of a project, termed "Break-
through" for its dramatic consoli-
dation and transformation of the
Company's two older raw sugar
milling operations. The three-year
construction project incorporated
the best sugar technology from
around the world.

Florida Bankers


meet with Governor



Crist


Representatives from Florida's
banking industry met with Gov.
Charlie Crist at the Governors.
Mansion this morning to convey
important news: Florida's banks
are the safest place for citizens to
keep their money.
And, furthermore, banks are
ready to lend.
Especially in these turbulent
economic times, its important
to know that an FDIC insured
bank is the best place to have
your money, said Alex Sanchez,
President and CEO of the Florida
Bankers Association (FBA). In
the 75 years since the FDIC was
established, not a dime-not even
a penny-of an insured deposit has
been lost.
Recent changes now allow for
customers to have $250,000 of
insurance, which can be crafted
to allow for even more coverage
depending upon the number and
structure of accounts.
One of the messages that the
FBA and bankers shared with the
Governor today is that Florida's
banks are strong, have money to
lend and are open for business.
We discussed the states eco-
nomic status and gave Gov. Crist
an update on the lending industry
in Florida, said Sanchez.
Recent headlines would lead
you to believe that money for
mortgages has dried up.
The truth is, banks have mon-
.ey to lend homeowners for new
purchases and to refinance exist-
ing mortgages as well as money
to lend small businesses that need
access to capital.
Additionally, members of the
FBA wanted to reinforce mes-
sages that bankers want to keep
people in their homes and only
use foreclosure as a last resort.
Anyone behind in their pay-
ments of their mortgage should
contact his or her banker imme-
diately.
Bankers are working with their
customers and want to avoid
foreclosure if at all possible, said
Sanchez.
Call your lenders. They under-
stand when there are challenges
to overcome and will work with


you to find the best solutions.
The bankers who attended the
meeting and press conference
were:
Matt Brown Premier Bank;
Mike Fields Bank of America;
Mike Sims Farmers and Mer-
chants; Tom Pennekamp Sun-
Trust; Sammie Dixon Prime'Me-

Conservation planning Investing in your future


INI Florida Are you a con-
servation minded landowner in
need of advice or financial in-
centives for your farm or ranch?
A comprehensive conservation
plan may be just what you need.
A conservation plan is a writ-
ten record of your management
decisions and the conservation
practices and systems that you
plan to use and maintain, on your
farm. Carrying out your plan will
achieve the goals of protecting the
environment on and off your farm
or ranch as well as meeting your
individual management objec-
tives. Having a conservation plan
may also help qualify you for vari-
ous USDA conservation programs
that can help you implement your
plan.
Conservation applications
for the Environmental Quality
Incentives Program (EQIP) and
the Wildlife Habitat Incentives
Program (WHIP) are currently
being accepted for .funding con-
sideration in fiscal year 2009 at
U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Natural Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS) offices through-
out Florida. Though an applica-
tion deadline for 2009 funding
has not yet been set, interested
landowners are encouraged to


contact a local NRCS office for in-
formation on conservation plan-
ning and submitting a completed
application.
"We are awaiting the final pro-
gram rules of the new 2008 Farm
Bill, which will determine the pro-
gram policies and eligibility crite-
ria," said NRCS State Conserva-
tionist Carlos Suarez. "However,
we are continuing to accept appli-
cations now so that we can write
our conservation plans in a timely
manner. We want to be well posi-
tioned to provide contracts to our
producers when the policies are
finalized."
EQIP is a voluntary program
that provides financial and tech-
nical assistance to farmers and
ranchers who face threats to soil,
water, air, and related natural re-
sources on' their 'land. Through
EQIP, the NRCS provides financial
incentives to producers to pro-
mote agricultural production and
environmental quality as compat-
ible goals, optimize environmen-
tal benefits, and help farmers
and ranchers meet Federal, State,
Tribal, and' local environmental
regulations.
The 2008 Farm Bill autho-
rizes increased payments for so-
cially disadvantaged farmers and


ranchers in addition to beginning
and limited resource producers.
Priority may be given to water
conservation applications that
will reduce water use or where
the producer agrees not to use
any associated water savings to
bring new land under irrigation
production.
WHIP is a voluntary program'
for private landowners to develop
and improve high equality habitat
that supports wildlife populations
of National, State, Tribal, and lo-
cal significance. Land eligible for
WHIP includes private agricultur-
al land, non-industrial private for-
est land, and Tribal land. Through
WHIP, the USDA's NRCS provides
technical and financial assistance.
WHIP agreements generally last
from 5 to 10 years.
Whether you want or need
financial incentives, now is the
time to contact your local district
conservationist to request con-
servation planning assistance...
to plan for your future.

The truth about America's banks


By Tabitha Trent, Branch
Manager
Riverside National Bank,
Okeechobee
Abraham Lincoln, one of
America's greatest "crisis manag-
ers," was a firm believer in Ameri-
cans' ability to handle a crisis.
"If given the truth, they can be
depended upon to meet any na-
tional crisis," he said. "The great
point is to bring them the real
facts."
Though the intense change
that America's economy and fi-
nancial system is undergoing
now is not nearly as profound
as the crisis Lincoln confronted
in his day, Lincoln's observation
remains fundamentally true to-
day. In that spirit, I would like to


offer you facts about the state of
our nation's banking system that
I hope you will find both informa-
tive and reassuring.
Fact. The vast majority of Amer-
ica's banks are highly capitalized.
What does that mean? It means
the industry has a cushion of
about $1.3 trillion that stands as a
backstop against possible losses,
making the possibility of anyone's
bank being taken over by the Fed-
eral Deposit Insurance Corpora-
tion (FDIC) remote. And if it did
happen, you would continue to
have uninterrupted access to your
FDIC insured deposits.
Fact. Deposits in commer-
cial banks and thrift institutions
are insured by the FDIC, and no
one has ever lost a penny of in-
sured deposits. Even better, the


agency has temporarily raised its
coverage amount from $100,000
to $250,000 per depositor per in-
sured institution through Dec. 31,
2009.
Fact. Banks pay premiums to
provide FDIC insurance for their
customers. The fund that guaran-
tees bank customers' deposits is
completely, 100-percent funded
by banks not by the govern-
ment, not by taxpayers.
Fact. Most of the turmoil in-
volves large institutions (Fannie
Mae, Freddie Mac, Lehman Broth-
ers, AIG) that are not banks. And
while Washington Mutual, which
was recently closed and then
acquired by JP Morgan Chase,
was a bank, the transaction was.
a seamless one that protected all
deposits even amounts above


the limit.
American commercial banks
are among the most highly regu-
lated in the world. The current cri-
sis should force needed reforms
on the less regulated, mortgage
brokers and Wall Street.
Remember, no FDIC-insured
depositor has ever lost a penny.
Lincoln was only one of many
presidents who witnessed Ameri-
cans' resiliency. In crises, Ameri-
cans pull together. We've been
through tough times before and
we'll get through this.

Reassurances, in context!


"I can do all things
through Him that
strengthens me"

By The Reverend
Samuel S. Thomas, Ph.
D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There are times a word of
comfort or reassurance can make
a real difference in somebody's
life.
I've tried to do that over the
years and hope that what I share
will be of help to someone facing
a tragedy or difficult situation.
Many Biblical passages come
to mind: we all have our favor-
ites.
As I was reading this past
week, one of them was in the text
from Saint Paul's Epistle to the
Philippians; "I can do all things
through Him that strengthens me
(4:13),."
That is really a comforting
thought. Sometimes, though, we
must sound like Job's friends
when trying to be of help.
Job was hurting, everything
went wrong that could go wrong
and his friends really offer little
help.
Platitudes do not help.
Telling Job that he must be
doing something wrong or other-
wise bad things wouldn't happen
doesn't help. Coming with com-
ments that show his friends don't
really understand his pain doesn't


help.
That's the challenge: to really
do some good in a bad moment.
As I got back to the verse that
is often, quoted to be of help, I
found it preceded by a "secret."
The passage comes at the end
of Paul's recap of his experiences
and what he has learned.
It does not come in isolation
but after talking about our part is
making God's promise our own.
Paul is in prison as he writes
it(ch.1, v. 14). It certainly is not a
time for him to be celebrating!
What, then, can be encourag-
ing him to say "I can do all things
through Him that strengthens
me"?
The answer comes by putting
to use what is around him and the
gifts he has on hand from God.
The admonition is that we "do
not worry about anything (easy,
to say how can we replace wor-
ries?) "but with prayer and. sup-
plication, with thanksgiving let
your requests be known to God
(v. 6)." t
Well, even if things are really
bad, they can be offered up to
God and at least we can ask for
His help.
We pray neither to a "celes-
tial magician" nor someone who
is there to do all of our bidding;
there are things we're supposed
to do in this life even at difficult
times. .
Paul continues by telling us to
"hang on to the good things and
"keep doing the things you have


learned and received..." and there
will be your strength.
Paul, in the midst of his own
suffering and difficulty, was grate-
ful for the concerns expressed by
others about his well-being.
He is not feeling sorry for him-
self; "not that I am referring to be-
ing in need, for I have learned to
be content with whatever I have
(v.11)."
He reminds his readers that "I
know what it is to have little and I
know what it is to have plenty.
In any and all circumstances,
I have learned the secret of being
well-fed and going hungry; of hav-
ing plenty and being in need."
Then Paul concludes with
that verse that is so often quoted
"I can do all things through Him
that strengthens me."
It is up to us to call upon God
when we're hurting but not to ex-
pect that we have nothing to do
afterward.
We are to fall back on the val-
ues and things we've learned;
putting them to work and learn-
ing how to draw upon our own
inner resources too.
Paul, when talking about
knowing good times and bad;
being well-fed and being hungry,
then talks his 'secret.'
The secret he reveals is that we
have resources within and need
to 'get busy;" forgetting self-pity
and make the best of even a bad
time.
Putting life in order with the
resources at hand and being


grateful for the support we have,
making the best of it even when
things do not go well ... that is the
mind set, the faith that carries us
through.
Paul summarized it all by put-
ting it in, the context of "I can
do all things through Him that
strengthens me."
God will be there to strengthen
us and build on the roots that are
within us.
The idea of "strengthening"
suggests .that there is already
something inside of us, and with-
in our capabilities now that will
be strengthened (not created or
added.)
What we have on hand, what
we've learned, real values that are
there already, get busy, do our part
and God will surely do His part.
Then the .words can really be
of comfort and things will get,
accomplished even at bad mo-
ments.

Confessions of a food addict


The long, hard steps
toward recovery
begin one at a time

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Hi, my name is John and I'm a
recovering food alcoholic.
I enjoy food.
Good times call for celebration
- bring on the good stuff!
Bad times call for -comfort I
love comfort food.
And what's a good gathering
without some munchies making
it better?
I found I was eating when I
was happy, eating when I was sad,
eating when I was bored, when I
was active, when I was stressed,
and even when I wasn't really
aware I was packing it away.
Some have a hard time under-
standing how a person can down
a half gallon. of ice cream without
realizing the amount that was
consumed.
I don't.
Some don't understand late
night or closet munching.
I do. I've been there.
Some people can eat anything
and not gain weight.
I can't.
I have always half-seriously
joked that I could gain three
pounds just by smelling some-
thing.
Behind the laughter of the jok-
ing there are tears.
Last year, God got in my face
and I lost 132 pounds. To accom-
plish it, I had to change my life-
style.
SThe only surgery I had for
my weight loss was the removal
of bad habits and the grafting of
new ones. .
Now comes confession time.
Over these last months, some
of the bad habits (and pounds)
started creeping back.
My new and healthier lifestyle
was eroding away. A little treat
here, a little there nothing bad
in itself, but the accumulation
started taking its toll.
To quote the Apostle Paul,
"What I want to do I do not do,
but what I hate to do I do."
Little bit by little bit, pound by
pound nothing noticeable at first

- but then the clothes weren't as
loose as they once were the belt
had to be let out another notch or
two.
I woke up one morning and
realized my ship had changed
course form the direction of my
heart.
I realized I needed once more
to shift my compass to get back on
track, and that constant vigilance
is needed to stay on course.
I have come to realize that
nothing tastes as good as being
healthy and whole feels.
It dawned on me that this was
very similar to sin in my life.
My old damaging lifestyles can
erode my' desired life-giving way
of life. Not that these lifestyles
were necessarily bad 'in them-
selves, but they were not good for
me.
For my better health, change
had to happen. There will be
times when I slip and stumble,
but I need to keep the bigger
picture in sight, and get back on
course.
The hardest part always seems
to be getting started.
Staying with it and not getting
discouraged is also difficult.
Let me share with you some
steps that I have found helpful
for beginning and for staying on
course, not just in weight issues,
but in any issues 'which might
weigh us down.
First, I had to own I had a
problem and commit to doing
something about it.


Second, I made a searching
and brutally candid inventory of
my lifestyle (and eating habits)
and came to an honest account-
ing of what I wanted and needed
to change.
. Third, I turned to God and
friends for help. I made a decision
to turn my will, my life, and EV-
ERY aspect of it over to the care
of God.
I adrriitted to God, to myself,
and others about my desires to
change, and humbly asked for
support.
I followed up with prayer and
commitments each morning and
sought continued help through-
out the day.
Change doesn't always occur
quickly. It takes time for a large
ship to turn around.
But even the longest journey
begins with a single step, I found
that once started, blessings began
flowing which encouraged me to
keep going.
The same can happen for you.'
No matter how far up or down
the scale we have gone, we can
know a new freedom and a new
happiness.
We can come to know the
peace that passes understanding.
Our whole attitudes and outlooks
upon life will change as we be-
come more whole and healthy,
and we realize even more that
we have a God who will do for us
and in us what we could not do
for ourselves.

Devon Land, Chief Deputy
Hendry County Office of Sheriff
October 9th, 2008


Dear Mr. Whidden,

In March of 2005, as a courtesy to you I wrote a letter for you that was to
be used by you in applying for a Law Enforcement Officer. It has come to
my attention that you are using such a letter as a part of your political adver-
tisements strongly to inferring Hendry County voters that I am "support-
ing", "endorsing", or "recommending" you for Sheriff of Hendry County.
The use of such a letter without my written consent, constitutes a violation
of Florida's election laws, specifically Section 106.143 (3), Florida Statutes.
I have previously advised you to discontinue the use of this letter.

Such a letter, published in such a manner as it infers that I am supporting
you for office, commits fraud upon the voters of Hendry County since I have
previously advised you that I feel that you are not qualified to be Sheriff of
Hendry County. After leaving your employment with the Sheriff's Office, I
learned that you had filed a false employment application with the Sheriff's
Office as you failed to reveal on your application that you received some 10
traffic citations and that two traffic bench warrants for your arrest and one
civil court contempt order had been entered against you according to the
official records of Collier County and your Cjty of Clewiston employment
application.

I have also learned through a memorandum contained in your file at the City
of Clewiston that you were removed from the DEA Task Force for being inef-
fective and failing to produce cases. This memorandum to you was written
by the Clewiston, Florida Chief of Police.

I demand that you remove my letter fiom any and all political advertisement
used by you in your campaign.

people who are knowledgeable,"
Mr. Mutwaley said.
Mr. Goodlet commented how
Obama has caught fire in the
grassroots despite the status quo.
"He has gotten people en-
thused about politics like never
before," Mr. Goodlet said.
The facilitator, Ms. Cheives, of-


fered her experience of the last
two years as a worker for the
Obama campaign.
"Most of the people I've seen
in the Obama campaign in Palm
Beach County have been white,"
Barbara Cheives said.
The panel discussion further
revolved around uniting grass-
roots America with corporate
America, and how a person's eth-
nicity may or may not influence
their election choices.


Topics also included the diffi-
culty some of the panel members
have had recently with their small
businesses not doing so well.
The term "labeling" came up
and how each label may mean
something different depending
on its many definitions; like "mi-
nority" and how it may be viewed
as negative or politically correct
depending on your perspective.
Another subject was the
touchy dilemma of being afraid


of accidentally offending another
person which could lead to a
stilted conversation on race and
politics, and basic truths may be
difficult to determine if people
hold back on how they feel about
an issue..
"We have to be purposeful
and deliberate if we want to have
a successful discussion," said
Cartheda Mann.
The forum only drew about 15
audience members, but the low


turnout was expected due to the
other meetings held at the same
time like the South Bay commis-
sioners meeting and the Pahokee
emergency meeting.
The next forum will be in West
Palm Beach after the November


elections.

It's an action that many locals
now consider necessary to fol-
low, considering the latest rash of
- shootings and robberies, which,
have had an adverse effect on the
area's youth.
Lately, the Saturday prayer
breakfast sessions have been
geared toward bringing words
of encouragement to the Glades
Central and Glades Day football
players.
They see the urge to hear spo-
ken words from 'speakers like
Ken Jackson, Wenfred Dorsey

a few.

ful than that of Bonique Holmes,
whose poem was effectively en-
titled 'Endless Thoughts.'
"There is pain in our hearts,
leaving us is tearing us apart," the
written piece began.
"We just saw you here at
home, but now you're gone.
,"My heart refuses to believe
that you're not here, that's why
today I shed these tears,", the
poem continued.
"Just not seeing you laughing
and alive, seems like a fairy tale
or better yel, a lie.
"Now our hearts feel like
10,000 pounds, the wind that
blow are our only sounds," the
writing said. '
"All I see is grief in their eyes,
people coming up to me and ask-
ing, 'Why, Why, Why?'
"Getting fed up with those
questions, but when I look to the
sky, the heavens, now I can say
you're in the Hall of Fame, #7,"
the piece said.
"I'm missing you more than
leaving home and personally, you
left me all alone," it continued.
"Why did you take him away?
Why couldn't you let him live an-
other day?
"I hope you're better:up there
than on Earth because down
here, without you is like a curse,"
the poem said.
"Rest in peace Norman 'Pooh'
Griffith."
"In my heart, without you,
there' will always be something
missing," it continued.
"Without you in my life, what
am I supposed to do?
"You're still gone, be my sol-
dier to the end 'Ehh Pooh,'" the
written piece said.
"God came in and changed
everything I wanted, he was my
food, now it's gone," the poem
said towards its conclusion.
"Now I'm hungry, he was my
time,,it's gone now, I'm lonely."
Anthony Atwell, Norman's


speaker, which took place on the
morning of Saturday, Oct 11.
It was also the funeral day for
Pahokee Blue Devils linebacker
Norman Griffith, who was tragi-
cally killed on Sept. 27.
"You can choose your choices
for now, but you can't choose
your consequences," Ms. Vereen-
told the Glades Central and Glades
Day players at the breakfast.
"Refuse to be anybody else's
hang-up, make your choices to-
day."
, After the players received
words of encouragement, they,
were offered an opportunity to
turn their lives around.
- "Don't be. ashamed. to stand
for God, He'll stand for you," Ms.
Vereen said to the boys.
The breakfast concluded with
a special prayer for Norman's
family and the .entire Pahokee


cousin, spoke to the crowd on
how his uncle, Norman Griffith
Sr., gave him a chance to attend
college.
Anthony, fighting back tears,
lamented at the fact that Norman
won't get that opportunity.
"He's everything I ask for in
a cousin," Anthony said. "I can't
sleep, I cry, I get headaches, but I
try to stay strong for him."
Minister Gregory Williams,
who presented the eulogy for
Norman's funeral, did his best
to help 'get everyone through the
moment.
"This is a very difficult service
to control the atmosphere," Min-
ister Williams said. ,
"But with God's help, we're
gonna make it."

Tyshia Cross, a Glades Central
alum.
S"That one day of unity sustains
us until we meet again with our
hearts on one accord."
Mr. Harriet offered some com-
forting words to the residents of
the Glades area.
"We know that of all this pain

there will be a positive outcome

"It's been tough for our foot-

said, noting that during last year's
Muck Bowl against. Glades Cen-
tral, Norman volunteered to play
at guard.
"As a leader, you could depend
on him," he continued.
"If you look back at tape, that
man is everywhere on the foot-
ball field." .
As the Pahokee coach reflect-

words for everyone.
"Are your bags packed?"'
Coach Thompson asked, refer-

ing that 'many positive fruits have

"The unity was here before the

"It's still happening, but it's
just that now it's more urgent for
us to save our ,Yojuth and bring the
message to them."
Jessie Hester, Glades Central's
first-year head coach, couldn't
agree more.

To the
Hendry County Voters


I want everyone to know due to the duties and respon-
sibilities of the Clerk's office, I have only campaigned
after business hours. I have been going door to door,
however, I regret I will not be able to see each of you
personally, but I am asking you for your support and for
your vote.
For the past 8 years I have been your Clerk of Circuit Court of Hendry County.
I have dedicated all my efforts to being fair and honest to all residents of this
county with an open door policy.
With your vote I can continue to provide the professional, efficient and courte-
ous operation of the Clerk's office and responsibilities.

THANK YOU



VOTE BARBARA COX BUTLER (Early voting starts Oct. 20) (General Election Nov. 4)

Dear Hendry County District One Voter:
For the past 14 years it has been my privilege to serve as your
county commissioner, and for that I thank you but there is
more work to be done!
The future of Hendry County can be bright with possibilities,
but it will take hard work, experience and knowledge to overcome
the precedented challenges ahead.
*Economic Development/Job Creation *Education
*Health Care *Flood Insurance *Affordable Housing
This is where my experience and passion for high quality
public service will make a difference.
I pledge to you to use my political expertise and my contacts in
state and federal government to keep officials focused on their
promise to help create an economic,plan for our future.
I hope that Ican count on your vote.
May God bless you that you be a blessing to others.
Sincerely,
Janet Taylor
