Honoring the work of a deputy


Pahokee
Chamber awards
Deputy

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Making a differ-
ence in the lives of citizens is one
that's generally not forgotten.
In this close-knit city, it's cer-
tainly the case and is arguably
one of its biggest attractions.
On Wednesday, Nov. 5, the
Pahokee Chamber of Com-


merce honored Deputy Sheriff
M. Duplantis of the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO)
with a 'You Made a Difference'
plaque.
Each month in Pahokee, the
city's chamber holds a breakfast
on the first Wednesday morn-
ing.
With the function usually be-
ginning at 7:30 a.m., those that
attend can expect to see the
genuine love and affection from
leaders in the community.
That's what makes Pahokee
seem very special when those


who aren't from the area spend
time there.
Deputy Sheriff Duplantis
could certainly attest to that.
Working in the daytime as
an officer, she tries to leave Pa-
hokee when her shift is done.
But there's something that holds
her back as she tries to go back
home to Wellington.
"I go out of my way to provide
service to the citizens of Pahokee
because they are warm-hearted,"
Deputy Duplantis says.
"I consider them the best and
most loving people in all of Palm


Beach County."
Deputy Duplantis knows that
in order to be successful in Pa-
hokee, you have to become peo-
ple-oreinted.
It's what makes work for the
deputy a rewarding experience.
And for her, sometimes it
doesn't even feel like work.
The citizens of Pahokee,
who generally feel they've been
overlooked for years, know that
in order to get love, it has to be
given.
Though the city has gotten its
share of negative press coverage


in years past, Deputy Duplan-
tis says that 'it's not as bad as it
seems.'
"It seems like the bad out-
weighs the good in Pahokee and
it's unfortunate," Deputy Du-
plantis said.
"I feel such a connection with
Pahokee," she continued.
"When you're there, you get
to see that the majority of the citi-
zens are good people,"
Deputy Duplantis loves

Driver loses control
of vehicle

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The Paho-
kee community suffered yet an-
other tragedy on Friday, Nov. 7.
Yosvany Antonio Gonza-
lez, 16, was killed in a single
car crash during the afternoon
hours, according to the sher-
iff's office.
It must be noted that a fel-
low 16-year-old passenger, Sta-
cy Corona, was in the vehicle
with him at the time.
She reportedly suffered mi-


nor injuries in the car wreck.
Both victims were students
at,Pahokee Middle-Senior High
School.
Investigators from the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO) revealed that Yosvany,
who was driving a 2002 Nis-
san Sentra, traveled westbound
on West Canal Street in Belle
Glade.
As the driver reportedly ap-
proached the 5000's block of
the roadway, he careened to
the right off the roadway and
lost control of his vehicle in the
process, authorities said.
The Nissan Sentra began to
rotate in a clockwise direction
to the left across both lanes of


traffic off the southside of the
roadway, the sheriff's office
said.
It was revealed that both
the front and passenger side of
the vehicle struck trees on the
southside of the roadway.
Not long after the Nissan
Sentra came to a rest at the
location, rescue workers trans-
ported both victims to Delray
Medical Center, where the driv-
er was pronounced dead.
The passenger was report-
edly treated for her injuries at
the aforementioned hospital.
The fatal accident occurred
at approximately 1:08 p.m., the
sheriff's office said.

"Let's build this building!"
said an exuberant Provost Bev-
erly Robinson as muck was
shoveled during Palm Beach
Community College's (PBCC)
groundbreaking ceremony for
the Technical Education Center
building in Belle Glade on Nov.
7.
This is the first major con-
struction project at the Belle
Glade campus in nearly 30
years and represents a prom-
ise fulfilled by PBCC to expand
workforce training programs in
the area. Over 100 people were
in attendance for the highly an-
ticipated day.
"This is a great day in the tri-
cities community. This building
fulfills a promise made to the
residents and the community
and is the first step in meeting
the educational and training
needs of this community," said
Dr. Dennis Gallon, president of
PBCC.
A regional summit was held
at PBCC in the fall of 2006 to
discuss the economic devel-
opment of the Lake Okeecho-
bee communities. Community
leaders saw a need for work-
force training programs and
the community college quickly
responded.
"A complete curriculum will
be available to individuals and
most importantly will be acces-
sible," said Gallon.
The 28,000- square-foot
Technical Education Center
will house such programs as


welding, carpentry, masonry,
plumbing, heavy bus and truck
mechanics, electrical, and the
corrections academy. The cen-
terpiece program is the Sugar
Technology Institute the first
sugar technology program in
North America.
"The sugar industry is alive
and well. We are the 50-year
backbone of the community,"
said Barbara Miedema, Vice
President of Public Affairs and
Communications of Sugar _
Cane Growers Cooperative of
Florida.
There is a lack of skilled
chemists and engineers enter-
ing the sugarcane industry as
the aging workforce starts retir-
ing, according to Miedema.
PBCC's Sugar Technology
Institute will help bridge that
gap and continues to find sup-
port among the local sugarcane
industries. The curriculum
for the program was written
by chemists employed at U.S.
Sugar, the Sugar Cane Grow-
ers Cooperation of Florida, and
Florida Crystals Okeelanta Cor-
poration.
Miedema expects that the
program will attract students
from Central and South Amer-
ica as well. The sugar technolo-
gy program is also endorsed by
the American Society of Sugar
Cane Technologists Florida Di-
vision.
The funds for the Technical
Education Center are provided
through almost $9 million in

Tigers Whip Scots; Win Title


By Jeff Barwick
Clewiston's journey to Boca
Raton St. Andrews on Friday night
proved to be very rewarding as
the Tigers captured their fourth
consecutive 2A District 6 title.
Three rushing scores by senior
tailback Darris Hughes powered
the offense while the defense
kept the Scots well in check.
The victory improved the
Clewiston record to 7-2 overall
and 4-0 in the district.
In fact, the Tigers have never
lost a district game since joining
the district four years ago.
Clewiston won the opening
toss but deferred until the second
half.
The defense held the Scots
three and out. From their 45, the
Tigers used 8 plays with Hughes
getting the final 4 yards.
Key plays on the drive were
throws from quarterback Isandro
Marquez of 22 and 12 yards caught
by tight end Julio Ramos.
The Tigers roared back in the
second period, scoring on a 25-
yard jaunt by Hughes. Hughes set
up the score with an 18-yard re-
turn of a short St. Andrews punt.

the extra point and was perfect
on the night on his 3 attempts.
Clewiston took the second half
kickoff and Hughes returned the
ball 18 yards to the Tiger 39.
Hughes then ran for 14 fol-
lowed by an 18 yard smash by
fullback Leonard Newton.
From their, Hughes burst up
the middle and raced untouched
for the 29 yard touchdown.
St. Andrews lone score came
early in the final quarter on a 12
yard run by tailback Ben Dexter.
The score was a gift as a result of
a blocked Tiger punt, the second
of the game.
While the Tigers won, the vic-
tory was not impressive as the
Scot's defensive front appeared to
be all the Tiger offensive line could
handle for most of the game.
From a rushing perspective, 16
of 31 Tiger rushes were held to 3
yards or less. Marquez' passing
was sharp except for 2 intercep-
tions.
Defensively, the Tigers seemed
more their normal self as they
held the Scots to 116 yards rush-
ing on 31 tries and only 55 yards
passing.

the game was decided.
Linebacker Joey Cordova
turned in his best performance of
the year with 10 tackles, an assist,
and 1.5 rushing sacks for a total of
5 yards lost.
Linebacker Dillon Irey also was
active with 7 tackles and an assist.
Linebacker Leonard Newton re-
covered a fumble and defensive
back Damion Smith picked off a
pass.
Tailback Darris Hughes
eclipsed the single season rush-
ing record for the Tigers on his
first carry of the game.
The record was 1,527 yards set
in 1990 by fabled Tiger tailback
Thomas Washington.
Hughes now stands at 1,649
yards rushing with one game re-
maining to add to the total.
The Tigers close out their
regular season this week hosting
Okeechobee.
The Brahmans have also se-
cured a playoff berth and feature
the hard running of Lonnie Pryor,
one of the best backs in the state.
Pryor rolled past the 2,000-yard
mark rushing in last week's vic-
tory over Jensen Beach.


The Tigers will open their play-
off activity on November 21 when
they host the Mulberry Panthers,
runner-ups in 2A District 5.
The Panthers are 6-4 entering
their final contest and finished 4-1
in district play.

Area boxers chosen Top PAL Team in Florida


On November 7, 2008 we
brought 12 Belle Glade and Paho-
kee PAL boxers to Fort Myers to
compete against other PA's for
I the Florida PAL Championship
title.
The kids boxed on Nov. 8 and
Nov. 9. Our youth boxers won five
championship title belts.
In addition, we were chosen as
the top team in the State of Flor-
ida out of every other PAL team,
winning a 4 foot trophy from the
Florida PAL.
This was an outstanding op-
portunity that PBSO Community
Services gave to the glades kids
between the ages of 11 to 17.
Many of the glades kids never
had the gift of staying away from
home and staying in a Holiday
Inn before the tournament.
We are keeping our kids off
the streets.
They are away from gangs,
drugs, alcoholic beverages, and
tobacco.
The school watch program
has begun in Pahokee.

Raiders clinch district, win over Suncoast

Raiders clinch district, win over Suncoast


Pahokee defeats Vero
Beach, Glades Day
beats Moore Haven

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE In Glades Cen-
tral's 44-0 thumping of Suncoast,
a few things were proven at the
conclusion of the Muck Bowl
tune-up.
The Raiders most likely will be
thoroughly dominant at a home-
coming game, which was re-
scheduled from Oct. 3 to Nov. 7.
Also, Glades Central can easily
win contests on the run, through
the air and on defense.
Simply put, this year's assem-
bly of Raiders is proving that an
opponent must play at least a
near-perfect game to even have a
chance of pulling a victory.
It's akin to, say, an opponent
picking its poison, especially in
District 15-3A play, which the
Raiders won with a 4-0 record
this season.
The consensus No. 1 team
in Class 3A, according to the lat-
est Associated Press High School
Football poll, mostly used its run-
ning game to overpower them in
the blowout win.
The running back duo of senior
Antonio McCloude (eight carries,
69 yards, 2 rush TDs) and junior
Antwon Chisolm (four carries, 18
yards, 2 total TDs) was just too
much for Suncoast to handle.
McCloude broke a scoreless tie
in the first quarter with a 5-yard
touchdown run, the first of three
touchdown drives in the second
quarter.
Chisolm followed with a 8-yard
rushing score of his own later in
the quarter.
Senior tight end/wide receiver
James West (three receptions, 36
yards) hauled in a 12-yard touch-
down catch in the second quar-
ter from junior quarterback L.J.
Thomas (11-for-15 passing, 173
yards, 1 TD).
Glades Central went into half-
time with.a 22-0 lead after senior
Andre Edwards caught a 2-point
conversion from Thomas, cour-
tesy of Chisolm's rushing score.
If Suncoast (4-6) thought they
were going to score at any point,
Glades Central gave them that
answer in emphatic fashion as
the Raiders gave up only 65 total
yards in the game. k : -_
The exclamation point came
in the second half when senior
defensive back D'Anthony Ja-
boam, a Royal Palm Beach trans-
fer, caught an, interception at the
Suncoast 19 yard line for a score.
Chisolm, who recorded 110 all-
purpose yards in the game, broke


loose for a 60-yard punt return for
touchdown in the second half.
The Raiders (9-0; Beef O' Bra-
dy's No. 3 team in the state's all-
classification poll) are now look-
ing forward to the annual Muck
Bowl against the Pahokee Blue
Devils.
Glades Central is hoping to
avenge a 34-24 home loss in last
year Muck Bowl, where this year's
backup senior quarterback, Ken-
tavious McCoy, was named the
Muck Bowl MVP.
If the Raiders win the Muck
Bowl, it would be their first since
2004.
Not only that, Glades Central
may make its first appearance in
USA Today's Super 25 national
high school poll next week, con-
tingent on the outcome of their
final regular season game.
The Raiders haven't been na-
tionally ranked since 2006, when
they were the No. 5 team in the
country before losing an early
season game to Byrnes (S.C.)


Pahokee 28, Vero
Beach 10
The Blue Devils (8-1; Beef O'
Brady's No. 4 team in the state's
all-classification poll) won their
Nov. 6 road game on the strength
of its running game, led by senior
Vincent Smith.
The Michigan commit rushed
for 211 yards and three touch-
downs in Pahokee's Muck Bowl
tune-up game against the Indi-
ans.
University of Florida commit
and senior Nu'Keese Richardson,
the only Muck-area player to ap-
pear on ESPN's latest ESPN150
high school recruiting list, threw
a 5-yard touchdown pass to fel-
low senior Dexter Holmes to
complete Pahokee's scoring in
the game.
However, Vero Beach did a
fairly decent job of neutralizing
Richardson, who was held to
6-for-15 passing with 58 yards,
one touchdown and one inter-
ception.
In all fairness, Richardson
played quarterback for the first
time since Pahokee faced Byrnes
(S.C.) on the road in an 38-12
heartbreaking loss.
In the three games before Vero
Beach all blowout wins Rich-
ardson lined up at receiver, his
natural position.
It was an effort to showcase
sophomore quarterback Em-
manuel Perez, who made a brief
appearance in the Muck Bowl
tune-up, though he didn't attempt
a pass.
On the defensive front, the

Floridians risk unexpected en-
counters with toxins on a daily ba-
sis through food poisoning, snake
bites, encounters with marine
life, insect bites, lead poisoning,
carbon monoxide, drug/chemical
abuse, pesticides or ingestion of
poisonous plants.
To save lives and provide a
resource for area residents, The
Florida Poison Information Cen-
ter Tampa, servicing 16 coun-
ties in west and central Florida,
is unveiling a new public service
campaign to increase awareness
of it's free, nationwide poison
emergency ,hotline 1-800-222-
1222 which is staffed with skilled
healthcare professionals 365 days
a year, 24 hours a day.
Using the direct message,
"When the problem is poison,
the answer is poison control,"


the campaign calls for all Florida
residents to use the hotline when
faced with poison-related emer-
gencies, including accidental
poisoning of pets. Consumers are
urged to call the hotline to receive
complimentary magnets and
stickers so they can display the
hotline number in a prominent
location before they have a actual
emergency.
"The poison information
hotline is staffed around the clock
with experts that can answer any
question, no matter how big or
small," said Dr. Cynthia Lewis-
Younger,, medical director Florida
Poison Information Center Tam-
pa.
"We're hoping to bring aware-
ness about the poison control
hotline to help Florida residents
know how to avoid poison dan-


gers, call in the even of suspected
poisoning, get immediate help in
emergency situations and prevent

Tree-planting to neutralize carbon from UF game


Marshall Foundation
volunteers will plant
trees on Nov. 15

INI Florida Arthur R. Mar-
shall Foundation Chairman John
Marshall announced today that
the organization would be partici-
pating in an effort to "neutralize"
carbon emissions produced by
the Nov. 15 University of Florida
home football game against the
University of South Carolina.
About 30 volunteers and staff-
ers from the West Palm Beach-
based Marshall Foundation,
which works for the restoration
and preservation of the greater
Everglades ecosystem, will spend
the morning of the game planting
native trees on Torry Island, a 700-
acre wetland near Belle Glade.


The effort is part of the Neutral
Gator Initiative (www.neutralga-
tor.org), a program co-sponsored
by UF's Office of Sustainability
that aims to offset carbon emis-
sions resulting from UF's 2008
football season home games.
"It's a wonderfully creative
way to focus people's attention
on global warming antidotes and
the role of Everglades restoration
in mitigating sea level rise. We're
proud to be a part of it," said Mr.
Marshall, adding that he's espe-
cially pleased that the initiative
originated at his alma mater. Both
John Marshall and his uncle Ar-
thur, for whom the Foundation is
named, graduated from the Uni-
versity of Florida.
"We are also very pleased that
our Arthur R. Marshall Summer
Interns who are environmental
science majors at UF are partici-


pating," said Mr. Marshall. "They
will act as Everglades subject-
matter experts and 'tour guides'
at the Neutral Gator booth at the
game."
The tree-planting will take
place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov.
15 at 5000 W Canal Street North
in Belle Glade. Two hundred na-
tive, wetland trees will be planted
in an area that was once part of
the original Everglades ecosys-
tem, and that the Marshall Foun-
dation has long been working to
reforest. To date, the Foundation
has planted more than 35,000
trees on Torry Island. The South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict, which owns the land, will be
"donating" carbon credits earned
by the planting to Neutral Gator.
Past and future plantings will con-
tinue to sequester carbon and
other contaminants.


About the Arthur R. Marshall
Foundation:
Founded in 1998, the Mar-
shall Foundation has aims to
educate young people and the
public about Everglades ecology
through science-based education
and public outreach programs,
and restore original plant life and
water flow patterns to the greater
Everglades ecosystem. In recent
years, the Marshall Foundation has
planted over 94,000 native Florida
trees in wetland areas, awarded
over $300,000 in scholarships and
internships, and involved more
than 5,000 volunteers in hands-on
restoration projects.

the Marshall Foundation, please

Plan now for Lake 0
Hike
It is time to organize your
schedule so that you can take
the time off during Thanksgiving
week to attend the Big "O" Hike
around Lake Okeechobee.
The Hike will begin in Pahokee


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

Support our troops
The Woman's Club of Belle

We want to make sure our

Is Your Gallbladder Acting Up?


By Dr. Leonard Carroll
HRMC Board Certified General
Surgeon
The gallbladder is a pear-
shaped organ that sits under the
liver and stores bile. Bile helps to
digest fats. It is attached to the bile
ducts that come from the liver.
These ducts carry bile from the
liver to the gallbladder, where it
is concentrated, and then to the
intestine, where the bile helps to
digest the food.

Gallstones
Gallstones can form in the
gallbladder because of excessive
cholesterol in bile. They can be
smaller than a grain of sand or
as large as a golf ball. They can
also form if the gallbladder does
not empty as it should. People
who are overweight or who are
trying to lose weight quickly are
more prone to get gallstones.
Gallstones are a very common
medical problem. When they
cause pain or other problems,
treatment is usually needed. The
removal of the gallbladder is one
of the most common types of sur-
gery performed in this county. In
the past, open abdominal surgery
was the traditional treatment. The
procedure required a five to seven
day stay in the hospital and a five
to seven inch incision and scar on
the abdomen.

Gallbladder Attacks
Most gallbladder attacks are
due to gallstones. People can go
for years with digestive symptoms
and never realize that they may be
related to a gallbladder problem.
That's because they are so simi-
lar to other digestive symptoms;
constipation is one of the most
commonly missed ones. Those
at risk may fall under the five F's
1. female, 2. forty or over, 3. fat
(obese), 4. fertile (kids), 5. flatu-
lent (gas).
Gallbladder attack symptoms
can include the following:
*Moderate to severe pain un-
der the right side of the rib cage
*Pain may radiate through to
the back or below the right shoul-
der blade
*Severe upper abdominal
pain
Nausea or vomiting
*Gas
Attacks often occur at night or
after overeating. Pain will often,


but not always, follow a meal in-
cluding fats or grease. Pain may
also be worse with deep breaths.
Attacks can last anywhere from
15 minutes to 15 hours.

Laparoscopic Cholecystec-
tomy
Laparoscopic surgery, some-
times called band-air surgery, is
a modern technique in which op-
erations in the abdomen are per-
formed through small incisions.
A cholecystectomy is the surgical
removal of the gallbladder.
The technique is performed as
follows: The patient receives gen-
eral anesthesia. A small incision is
made at the navel (point A) and a
tube carrying the video camera is
inserted.
The surgeon inflates the ab-
domen with carbon dioxide, a
harmless gas, for easier viewing
and to provide room for the sur-
gery to be performed.
Next, two long instruments
are inserted (points B and C).
These instruments serve as tiny
hands within the abdomen. They
can pick up the gallbladder, move
intestines around, and generally
assist the surgeon.
Finally, several different instru-
ments are inserted (point D) to
clip the gallbladder artery and bile
duct and to safely dissect and re-


move the gallbladder and stones.
When the gallbladder is freed, it
is then teased out of the tiny na-
vel incision. The entire procedure
normally takes 30 to 60 minutes.
The four puncture wounds re-
quire no stitches and may leave
very slight blemishes. The navel
incision is barely visible.

What Are the Benefits?
The main benefit of this pro-
cedure is the ease of recovery for
the patient. There is no incision
pain that occurs with standard
abdominal surgery. The patient is
up and about the very same day.
In fact, up to 90 percent of
patients go home on the same
day as the surgery; the other 10.
percent are usually discharged
the next day. Within several days,
normal activities can be resumed.
Also, the scars on the abdomen
are very small.
Gallbladder removal by lap-
aroscopic surgery is an exciting
development because it offers so
much to the patient. The surgeon
carefully evaluates each case and
discusses it with the patient.
While problems can occur
with the procedure, it's unlikely.
In almost all instances, patients
experience excellent results, and
resume their day-to-day activities
very quickly.

Teouesta Indians and Sea Wolves


Submitted photo/NOAA Photo Library
The "Sea Wolves" were a popular food item for the Tequesta, although not all ate the animal. The Sea Wolf is better known
to the world as a Caribbean Monk Seal -- a species that is extinct.


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The tide's invasion ended at
the high water mark, as wind
swept dunes and sea oats stood
like guardians, banishing the
sea's advance.
The frothy tide slowly retreat-
ed, leaving in its wake abandoned
sea grasses and marine debris
that formed a dark thin border
paralleling the shoreline.
The debris from the retreating
sea soon attracted thousands of
screaming, diving birds and scur-
rying crabs.
The sea wolves elongated
shapes moving like fat, brown
caterpillars, advanced cautiously
from the water's edge toward the
dunes.
Their streamlined bodies
squirmed and flopped across the
hard wet sand until they reached
the edge of the dunes.
The sluggish sea wolves
stretched their bulging stom-
achs across the warm sands and
drowsily basked in the warmth of
the tropical sun.
What were sea wolves and
who were the Tequesta?
It is time to take a "Walk in The
Past" and read Fontaneda's Tall
Tales about the Tequesta Indians
and the sea wolves.
Fontaneda, a Spanish cast-
away taken captive by the Calusa
Indians, described the Tequesta
Indians living on the keys.
He said, "These Indians have
no gold, less sliver, and less cloth-
- ing.
"They go naked, except only
some breech-cloths woven of
palm, with which the men cover
themselves; the women 'do the
like with certain grass that grows
on trees.
"This grass looks like wool, al-


though it is different from it. The
common food is fish, and snails
(all of which are alike fish), and
tunny and whale; which is ac-
cording to what I saw while I was
among these Indians.
"Some eat sea-wolves; not all
of them, for there is a distinction
between the higher and lower
classes, but the principle persons
eat them.
"There is another fish, which
we here call langosta (Lobster)
and one like unto a chapin (truck-
fish), of which they consume not
less than the former."
The wdol that Fontaneda re-
ferred to was Spanish moss and
the snails (clams, oysters and
conch) were shellfish.
The Spanish term "sea wolf"
was used to describe the Carib-
bean monk seal, also. known as
the West Indian seal, which once
inhibited the Caribbean Sea and
Gulf of Mexico.
The seals were once numer-
ous in the keys. The last seal
sighting in the keys was at Key
West in 1922, and it was killed.
The Caribbean Monk seal was
hunted into extinction. The seals
were unique to the Tequesta and
must have held a social or reli-
gious status, since only the Te-
questa from the high cast system
could eat them.
So who were the Tequesta?
Some linguistics thinks the
Tequesta may have spoken the
Calusa language, which would
link the Tequesta directly to the
Calusa culture.
If they were kissing cousins
it didn't help much because the
Calusa Indians dominated them
and demanded tribute.
The Tequesta Indian nation
lived on the southeast coast of
Florida in areas known today as
Miami, Dade, and Broward coun-


ties.
However,, some of the Te-
questa villages relocated from the
mainland to the keys during the
mosquito season, which lasted
about three months.
There are numerous Spanish
documents that make reference
to the Tequesta living in the keys.
The Tequesta's practiced hu-
man sacrifice.
A Spanish priest heard that a
young girl was going to be sacri-
ficed to celebrate a peace treaty
with the Santaluces Indians.
The priest sent a message
to the chief begging him not to
sacrifice the young girl, so the Te-
questa chief relented.
Other Spanish priests saw the
Tequesta Indians worshipping a
stuffed deer, which was a symbol-
ic representative from the sun.
They also reported a bird's
head carved in pine that was
stored in a temple, along with
carved masks used in festivals.
The sacrifices, Tequesta tem-
ples and masks bare great simi-
larity in the Calusa culture.
An archeological discovery ten
years ago brought the forgotten
Tequesta Indian nation back into
the limelight of Native American
history.
The Miami Circle, also known
as the Miami River Circle is locat-
ed on the site of a Tequesta village
south of the Miami River.
There are 24 large holes cut
into the bedrock, forming a circle
approximately 38 feet in diam-
eter.
The. Circle was discovered dur-
ing an archeological survey of
a site being cleared for the con-
struction of a high-rise building in
1998, and is believed be 1700 to
2000 years old.
Some think the site was the Te-
questa capital, but no one is sure


of its true significance.
I find it interesting that Fon-
tenado said the Tequesta had no
gold and little silver.
The Tequesta Indian nation
included territories that are now
termed the "Gold Coast."
It is a term used to describe the
Florida coast from Miami to Palm
Beach, where many gold and sil-
ver coins have been found.
The Gulf Stream runs much
closer to shore in Palm Beach
County, so maybe the ships that
sank in the Tequesta. territories
(Dade and Broward Counties)
were in deeper water and not.
savaged by the Tequesta Indians,
which would account for no gold
and little silver.
The Florida coast starting at
Hobe Sound (Martin County) and
ending at Sebastian Inlet (Indian
River County) is described as the
"Treasure Coast" because so
many ships laden with gold and
silver wrecked in these areas.
The famous 1715 Spanish
Treasure Fleet wrecked on the'
Treasure Coast.
There will be other "Tall Tales"
in next week's edition of "A Walk
in The Past" when Fontanedo and
Jonathan Dickinson, a Quaker,
describes the Ais Indian nation
that lived on the Treasure Coast.
I hope you have enjoyed this
story.

Museum if you have questions,
artifacts, pictures or a "Whale of a
Tale" that you would like to share.

a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through

days, at Florida Department of Environmental Protection, South District, 2295 Vic

and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes or all parties reach a written agreement on media-
tion as an altemative remedy under Section 120.573 before the deadline for filing a
petition. Choosing mediation will not adversely affectthe rightto a hearing, if me-
diation does not result in a settlement. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing
are set forth below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the above-proposed agency
action may petition for an administrative determination (hearing) underSections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the informa-
tion set forth below and must be filed (received) in the Department's Office of Gener-
al Counsel, Marjory Stoneman Douglas Building, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Pettitons filed by any persons
other than those entied to written notice under Section 120.60(3) of the Florida
Statutes must be filed within fourteen (14) days of publication of this notice or re-
ceipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. The petitioner shall mail a copyof
the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition (or a request for mediation, as discussed be-
low) within the appropriate ime period shall constitute a waiver of that person'sigh
to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and
120.57 of the Florida Statutes, or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a
party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party)
will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administrate Code.

A petition that disputes the maternal facts on which the Department's action is based

sal or modification of the Department's action or proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the

proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department's action
is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, FA.C. Be-
cause the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency ac-
tion, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be dierent
from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will
be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to
become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth
above. In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect
to pursue mediation. The election may be accomplished by ailing with the Depart-
ment a mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the
Department, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition fora hear-
ing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404,
FA.C The agreement must be received by the clerk in the Office of General Counsel
of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,

be affected by the action or proposed action addressed in this action or a statement
clearly identifying the petition for hearing that each party has already filed, and incor-
porating it by reference: and
(h) the signatures of all parties or their authorized representatives.
As provided in Section 120.573 of the Florida Statutes (FS.), the timely agreement
of all parties to mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569
and 120.57, FS. for requesting and holding an administrative hearing. Unless oth-
erwise agreed to by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty (60)
days of receipt of the execution of the agreement If mediation results in settlement
of the administrative dispute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating
the agreement of the parties. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected
by such a modified final decision of the Department have a night to petition for a
heanng only in accordance with the requirements for such petitions set forth above
and must, therefore, file their petitions within fourteen (14) days of receipt of this

Sections 120.569 and120.57, FS. If mediation terminates without settlement of the
dispute, the Department shall notify all parties in wring that the administrative hear-
ing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, FS., are resumed.

Lake 0 17th annual walk

, ,.


Submitted photo
This year's Big O Hike will kick off Nov. 22 at the Pahokee Marina. The annual event is cus-
tomarily well attended by locals and tourists.


On Nov. 22, hikers will gather
at the Pahokee Marina to kick off
the 17th Annual Big O Hike.
Sinced 1992, the 109 mile
Florida Trail circuit walk known
as the Big O Hike has pumped
tourism dollars into small towns
around the lake while encourag-
ing hiking for fitness, drawing visi-
tors from as far away as Ontario
and California.
For nine days the participants


walk from 9.3 to 14.7 miles, start-
ing at sunrise and ending at their
leisure, usually before noon.
Although flat and open, the
trail offers outstanding scenic
views, especially at sunrise and
sunset.
The hike passes through five
counties around Lake Okeecho-
bee where hikers experience the
quiet side of South Florida.
As one of the Florida Trail


Gateway Communities, Pahokee
is an ideal kickoff point for the Big
O Hike.
Join us on Nov. 22 at the Pa-
hokee Marina at 8 a.m,, or at any
point along the hike for an inter-
esting and educational walk.

of stops along the way at Lox.

Wildlife officials to test ducks for avian influenza


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
and United States Department of
Agriculture Wildlife Services bi-
ologists will collect samples from
hunter-harvested ducks to test for
highly pathogenic avian influenza
- H5N1.
Sampling will occur at various
times during the migratory game
bird hunting season at several
duck-hunting hot spots through-
out Florida.


Hunters will not need to sur-
render their ducks, and participa-
tion is voluntary.
Biologists will obtain the sam-
ples by swabbing the ducks' re-
spiratory and digestive tracts.
Scientists at a diagnostic lab
will test the samples for avian in-
fluenza and other diseases.
The sampling is part of a con-
tinuing international surveillance
effort to determine if migratory
birds carry the highly pathogenic


H5N1 strain of avian influenza in
North America.
Last year, more than 65,000
samples were collected nation-
wide, including more than 1,200
samples from Florida.
None of the samples tested
positive for the virus, including
the 481 collected at check stations
in Florida's wildlife management
areas.
While it is extremely unlikely
that hunters could contract avian


influenza from wild birds in Flor-
ida, officials recommend taking
common-sense precautions to
reduce the risk of contracting any
disease from wildlife.
For instance, do not harvest
or handle wild birds that are
obviously sick or found dead;
wear rubber gloves while clean-
ing game; clean game outdoors
and stay upwind of game while
cleaning; and do not eat, drink or
smoke while cleaning game.


It's also important to wash
hands with soap and water im-
mediately after handling game or
cleaning bird feeders.
Wash tools and work surfaces
used to clean game birds with
soap and water, then disinfect
with a 10-percent bleach solu-
tion.
In addition, hunters should
separate raw meat, and anything
it touches, from cooked or ready-
to-eat foods to avoid contamina-


tion.
The FWC recommends cook-
ing game birds thoroughly. Meat
should reach an internal tempera-
ture of 165 degrees Fahrenheit to
kill disease organisms and para-
sites.
For more information about
avian influenza and the FWC's
monitoring program, including
how to report observations of
dead birds, visit MyFWC.com/
bird/Avianinfluenza.htn.

An Educational Toy: Finding our way home


Our guide when we
cannot see the
horizon

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Many times when I was grow-
ing up, we'd find a "treasure"
when shopping around.
For years after the end of World
War II there were lots of military
surplus items that found their way
into local second-hand stores and
surplus centers.
Many of them were great finds
to do-it-yourselfers, radio ama-
teurs and hobbyists of all sorts of
interests.
One day when "shopping"
with my father and brothers, we
came upon a bubble sextant.
They were originally estimated


to cost the government a few hun-
dred dollars each; now they were
on sale for fifty cents a piece.
Their purpose was for celestial
navigation; to guide an aircraft.
Two of them had to come
home!
My father had a sailboat ear-
lier in his life and they brought
back memories as well as being
something he could share with
his sons.
This was a great learning expe-
rience.
I didn't master all of the details
but I learned enough to "shoot
the sun" or get an angle between
a star and the earth, seeing how I
might figure out the time from the
angle of the sun or explore ways
to use it as a level.
It was different than the usual
sextants, the kind my father would
have had on his boat.
Instead of looking for the ho-


rizon, there was a bubble level
built into it.
It was much like the level used
in hanging pictures or building
houses. It was for aircraft use and
provided an artificial horizon.
A plane above the clouds or
flying on a very dark night when
everything was blacked out might
still be able to find its way home
or where it was going.
The bubble provided an invisi-
ble horizon even when there were
no landmarks or there was noth-
ing to be seen in the distance.
Long before satellites were
even thought of, or when radio
navigation was still in its infancy,
the combination of a simple level
and a way of measuring angles
gave a means of finding our way
and bringing us safely home.
For me, it was a toy, a relic of
another time, something that was
once very valuable but now had


little worth or purpose.
I was fascinated with it for
awhile sharing in my imagina-
tion a time gone by when people
crossed oceans with much great-
er courage then we need today.
The Bible has many stories
about navigational dangers; Jo-
nah who thinks he is going to Tar-
shish and winds up in Nineveh,
the very place he doesn't want to
go.
There were disciples who were
afraid of being lost in a storm at
sea while Jesus is sleeping in the
stern of their boat.
He becomes their guide and
calms their fears about being lost
(Mark 4:36ff).
Paul tells about being ship-
wrecked three times (2 Corinthi-
ans 11 L25) but he continues on
"through visions and revelations"
(12:1) as his guide.
These can be our guide too


when we don't see the horizon
or feel lost or can't find a familiar
landmark.
An invisible force inside of a
direction finder kept a bubble
floating to provide a horizon, and
it became a way to find the way.
A force is also within us; faith
will provide a sense of direction,
help us find our way home, give
us assurance when the night is
dark and there seems to be noth-
ing around to guide us.
It will provide us with the cour-
age to venture out when the way
is unknown or the world seems
full of hidden dangers.
.There are those navigational
plans; to guide us in the earthly
world and to guide us in the world
of the spirit.
We can rely on them both to
get us through and take us where
we need to go.
I count myself as fortunate


when I grew up.
My brothers and I were en-
couraged to be curious and had
our quest to explore stimulated.
We were given "toys" at times
that weren't really toys and we
learned how to "navigate" around
strange objects, to ask questions,
to search for answers and direc-
tion.
Sometimes what we learned
pointed to greater truths ; they let
us marvel at great deeds done by
saintly people, taught us some-
thing about faith and seeing God
at work.
There are many blessings out
there: God comes to His faithful
and shows us the horizon within
us, guides us in safety and finally
leads us home


Thanksgiving is really Thanksliving! iiiii]*ii


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
At First Christian Church we
are celebrating the entire month
of November as Thanksliving
Month.
We are urging all not to just
"Give" Thanks but to "Live"
Thanks the entire month!
.William Law, a 17th century
Englishman, once asked: "Would
you know who is the greatest
saint? It is not the man who prays
most or who does most. It is the
man who is most thankful."
Were did Mr. Law get such an
idea?
He, like many Englishmen
of his day, was deeply versed in
Scripture.
In I Thessalonians 5:18 Paul
wrote, "In everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God in Christ
Jesus for you."
The man who wrote those
words endured much hardship
for Christ.
The great apostle Paul was ar-
rested, tried, and imprisoned.
He was beaten with whips and
rods. Once he was stoned and left
for dead. He suffered shipwreck,
perils in the water, perils in the


city, perils in the wilderness.
He was badly used by his own
countrymen, by robbers and false
brethren.
He experienced weariness,
toil, sleeplessness, hunger and
thirst, cold and nakedness. Finally
he was beheaded.
Yet he wrote, "In everything
give thanks."
Notice that Paul did not say
FOR everything but IN every-
thing.
Surely he did not thank God
for all of these dreadful things that
happened to him.
But because he knew that "all
things work together for good to
those who love God" (Romans
8:28) he could thank God in those
dreadful circumstances.
This is why he could write, "I
have learned in whatever state I
am, to be content" (Philippians
4:11).
Arthur Callendro writes, "I am
similarly impress by the Pilgrims
who did so much to shape the
great heritage we have in Amer-
ica.
"If you have ever been to the
New England coast in winter,
you can appreciate what they en-
dured. Imagine a small band of
people arriving in early Decem-


ber.
"The trees were barren. Grass
which was lush and green in
summer is now yellowish-brown
and dry.
"The ground is getting hard as
the winter freezes begins. There is
little food, for the growing season
is past. It's cold.
"The winds blowing in off the
North Atlantic bite into the set-
tler's bodies as if searching for the
very marrow of their bones.
"As they look across the ocean
toward England, they see nothing
more than gray waves pounding,
churning spray upon still grayer
rocks.
"New England is a hostile, for-
bidding place in winter, yet the
Pilgrims managed to build shel-
ters.
"By summer half of them were
dead of disease, deprivation, and
exposure to cold.
"But a small group of hardy
ones survived to see the May-
flower return to England, not one
of them choosing to go with'it. In
spite of the hardships they deter-
mined to stay.
"With the help of Indians they
planted their first crops and when
the short growing season ended,
they did not have that much.


"Yet when the harvest came,
the dominant idea in their minds
was to give thanks to God for
what they had.
"They had a celebration, a
time of thanksgiving for God's
blessing.
"The first Thanksgiving was a
holy day.
"Wouldn't it be great if you and
I as individuals and our nation as
a whole could once again think
of Thanksgiving as a holy day in-
stead of just another holiday?
"The Pilgrims believe that Al-
mighty God who created them
was over all, and that men, wom-
en, and children were dependent
upon Him.
"Things have changed over
the years. The dominant attitude
today is that we are masters of
life.
"We feel we are in charge of
the world and don't need this
God so much anymore.
"We can handle everything
ourselves.
"It is more difficult for a mod-
ern person to be grateful, and that,
I believe, is why Thanksgiving has
changed from being a holy day to
being a holiday."

Anchor Avoid getting the Chickenpox and get a shot!


Deep



and



Pray

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The Garden of Gethsemane is
really an olive orchard, and oljve
trees still grow there today.
The word Gethsemane itself
means olive press.
An olive press is made from
a large stone placed on a basket
leveraged by several more large
stones on the end of a long pole.
It literally.crushes the liquid oil
from the olives.
It is no mistake that Jesus spent
His last evening in the Garden of
Gethsemane.
From there He would go to
the cross and receive the weight
of the world, the gethsemane of
our sins.
Luke describes the pressure
Jesus suffered that evening: "Be-
ing in anguish His sweat was
like drops of blood falling to the
ground."
It is an image of the gathse-
mane crushing the oil from the
olive fruit.
Gethsemane ever since has
come to symbolize suffering.
We are surrounded by gethse-
manes in our life times when in-
nocent people and communities
have suffered.
Times when we feel pressures
and situations pressing down on
us.
Think about Hurricane Wilma
or Tropical Storm Faye.
Think about the proposed U.S.
Sugar buy out or the current finan-
cial crisis around the world, but
more directly around our lives.
Think about the current elec-
tion with all of the amendments
and proposals and the future of
our community and nation.
As I wrote this, I still haven't
fully decided for whom I'm going
to cast my presidential vote.
By the time you read this, it will
Shave been decided along with a
number of amendments and is-
sues. In the face of such suffering
and conflicting promises, in the
face of the election results, in the
face of our life situation, we ask
ourselves: Who do we turn to?
What do we do? Where do we go
from here?
First, let's look at who we turn
to. In the- midst. of our suffering
or the oncoming storms, we can
turn to God an ever present help
in times of need.
The psalmist in Psalm 121:1-2
states it this way, "I lift up my eyes
to the hills -- where does my help
come from? My help comes from
the LORD, the Maker of heaven
and earth." I remember when
Hurricane David headed our way
in 1979.
A college friend had a boat that
he was worried about, so num-
ber of us descended south from
Gainesville to help him secure his
boat for the coming storm.
Being a former Boy Scout, I
was proud of the job we did in
tying down that boat. We lashed
it tightly to the dock, trees, and
even to itself. We were patting
ourselves on the back when a sea
captain informed us that the best
way to.secure a boat safely dur-
ing a hurricane was to anchor it
away from the trees and things
which would "get eaten up in the
'cane."
It was better to anchor it deep
with four ropes going out in dif-
ferent directions and pray.
It was good advice then and
is good advice as to what we are
to do. We are to anchor deep and
then we are to pray. We are to do
what we can do and then turn to
our Lord.
Now the 20-dollar question,
"Where do we go from here?"
Regardless of who won the
election, regardless of whether
the amendments we wanted or
didn't want passed or failed, re-
gardless of where the economy
is, we are to go on.
We pick up the pieces and go
forward the best we can, trusting
that God, family, and friends will
help us.
We take inventory and try to
realize anew the really important
things in our life, as well as those
important people and then em-
brace them!
Now is when the body of Christ


By Brenda Barnes
A lot of people may remember
getting chickenpox as a kid, but
did you know that you can now
get a shot to prevent chickenpox?
Chickenpox is highly infectious
and symptoms can include a
blister-like rash, itching, tiredness,
and fever. Usually, you will start
seeing the rash on the face and
upper body. Imagine trying not to
scratch 250 to 500 "itchy" blisters!
Chickenpox can spread from per-


son to person by direct contact or
through the air from an infected
person's coughing or sneezing.
(Remember to cover your face
with a tissue!) A person with
chickenpox is contagious one to
two days before the rash actually
appears and is still contagious un-
til all blisters have formed scabs.
It takes about 10 to 21 days after
exposure for someone to develop
chickenpox. Chickenpox will usu-
ally last anywhere from five to ten
days and children usually miss


from five to ten days of school or
daycare due to their chickenpox.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
about one out of ten children can
have complications when they get
chickenpox. These complications
can include infection, dehydra-
tion from vomiting and diarrhea,
or more serious complications
such as pneumonia and encepha-
litis. If a child gets the chickenpox
shot, there is a small chance that
they can still get chickenpox, but


their illness is usually mild, with
no symptoms at all other than a
few red bumps.
It is recommended that chil-
dren get two doses of the varicel-
la vaccine (chickenpox vaccine).
The first dose should be given
when the child is 12 to 15 months
old. It is usually given at the same
time as their MMR vaccine (Mea-
sles, Mumps & Rubella). The sec-
ond dose should be given when
the child is between four and six
years old, before they enter kin-


dergarten or first grade. If you've
had the chickenpox, then you
don't need to get the shot.
Please remember that it is very
important that your kids get all
recommended shots. For a list of
shots that you or your child may
need, please contact the Hendry
County Health Department at 863-
674-4041, LaBelle; 863-983-1408,

Duplantis
Continued From Page 1

kids
Talking to the youth in Paho-
kee is something Deputy Duplan-
tis looks forward to, according to
Lieutenant Reinaldo Alonso, the
District 12-Pahokee Commander
of the PBSO.
Ever since the 2006 merger,
Deputy Duplantis has spent much
of the past three years offering
the youth a variety of tips on how
to finish high school, go to col-
lege and most of all, stay out of
trouble.
For example, the deputy can
be seen taking time out to read
to first graders at both the Canal
Point and Pahokee Elementary
Schools.
In addition, she regularly


makes visits to the two elemen-
tary schools in an effort to pro-
mote communication with all the
students there.
It's just a small part of the
Schoolwatch Program, an initia-
tive assembled by PBSO Sergeant
Sean Flynn and the sheriff's office
Community Policing Team.
Speaking of which, Deputy
Duplantis was recently added to
the Community Policing team as
an effort to gain positive relations
with the citizens in Pahokee.
The Schoolwatch Program,
Deputy Duplantis said, is aimed
for officers on the Community Po-
licing team to monitor students'
grades, while making sure that
conduct in the classroom is, at
the very least, acceptable.
"I want to show the kids that
we care about their everyday
lives," Deputy Duplantis said.
Another way she goes about
her mission to help kids out is by


promotion the Community Part-
nership Group, a program that's
an integral element to the Paho-
kee Beacon Center.
The partnership group is
geared to address family issues
in the home, as many students in
the community experience a less-
than-ideal family structure.
Deputy Duplantis makes it a
point to see that each child has a
positive mentor in their lives.
"Their efforts are greatly appre-
ciated and the kids need to know
that there's someone out there
who wants to mentor them,"
Deputy Duplantis said of the Bea-
con Center's partnership group.
"It makes a child feel special
and it's rewarding to see a child
grow up into a respectable per-
son."
On the high school level, Dep-
uty Duplantis congratulated one
student who she said that recently
won a debate challenge against


many of his peers in the county.
But she was concerned upon
discovering that the student hid
his trophy at home, perhaps in
fear of being labeled 'uncool'.
"Other than sports, kids are
afraid to showcase their accom-
plishments here in Pahokee,"
Deputy Duplantis said.
On Monday, Nov. 10, just three
days after Pahokee High School
student Yosvany Antonio Gon-
zalez was killed in a car crash in
Belle Glade, the deputy took the
time to offer comfort to the stu-
dents who were adversely affect-
ed by the tragedy.
Later in that day, Deputy Du-
plantis took Ariel Alejo, the high
school principal, and others to
the victim's home, offering con-
dolences to the family.
"You know people who have
lost a loved one and you want to
show your respect to them," the
deputy said.


Lt. Alonso considers Deputy
Duplantis an asset to the sher-
iff's office, confirming that she's
'wonderful with children.'
"As a great police officer, Dep-
uty Duplantis gives 100 percent to
the community that she serves,"
Lt. Alonso said.
"We're very fortunate to have
her out here in the Pahokee com-
munity working with our chil-
dren."
An extensive support
effort
The kind acts of Deputy Du-
plantis can now be extended to
cities such as South Bay.
Evidence of that came by the
deputy's appearance at South
Bay's Veteran's Day Parade,
which was held on Nov. 10.
The event, which honors all of
South Bay's veterans who previ-
ously served in the military, was


supported by the PBSO Explorers
Program, which Deputy Duplan-
tis just joined on Monday.
Also taking part in the PAL
Boxing Program, the deputy may
have her hands full, but for her,
she tries to live by an important
concept.
"I try to help as many people
as I can, when I can," Deputy Du-
plantis said.
With about 25 people at the
Nov. 5 Chamber Breakfast, it was
all smiles and a round of applause
for everything that she's done in
the area.
"I am so appreciative of this
prestigious award," Deputy Du-
plantis said.
"In my heart, it meant a lot be-
cause I really care about the Pa-
hokee community."

U.S. Sugar to keep its operations, to sell acreage


Deal calls for sale of
land, not facilities

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
CLEWISTON -- There is a new
deal on the table regarding the
sale of U.S. Sugar to the state.
Despite initially offering all of its
land and production facilities, the
company is now keeping the mill
and the railroad and citrus plants
_ out of the sale.
The news was made public by
Governor Charlie Crist on Tues-
day, following initial reports.
Under the terms of the sale,
the company is offering 182,500
acres land to the South Florida
Water Management District --
4,500 acres less than the initial
deal. U.S. Sugar will maintain its
primary mill in Clewiston, its rail-

capital improvement bonds and
donations. All donations are
matched 100 percent by the state.
PBCC's foundation has raised ap-
proximately $565,000 and has a
capital goal of $3 million.
"This is a critically needed
building and will help provide
economic development for the
western communities," said Suel-
len Mann, executive director of
the foundation.
Construction of the building
will begin this week. A ribbon
cutting is planned for the summer
of2010.
"I hope the community will
get involved and follow the con-
struction of this building. This will
benefit the community and help
so much with the training of its
workers. This is a visible begin-
ning of a new milestone," said
Carolyn Williams, a member of
PBCC's District Board of Trust-
ees.
PBCC continues its commit-

road and citrus operations.
The original terms called for a
$1.75 billion buyout of U.S. Sugar.
The new sale is in the neighbor-
hood of $1.3'4 billion.
The change poses some in-
teresting questions as the matter
heads toward the governing bod-
ies of the company and the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict for final approval.
With U.S. Sugar keeping just
about 2.5 percent of the. land it
owns, the question is whether the
company can sustain the profits it
has become accustomed to when
it has operated with a much larger
area of production.
The matter of the 1,700 jobs is
still vague. A much scaled down
operation seems to guarantee the
loss of jobs, but with the deal in
its infancy, concrete plans are still
murky.

When the sale of the company
was announced earlier this year,
Carol Wehle, the district's execu-
tive director, assured residents
that there were no plans to shut
down the mill. The district un-
able to operate such a facility, the
general consensus seemed to be
a sale of the production facilities
to another agricultural company
-- perhaps that operated by the
Fanjul family, or even the Sugar
Co-op in Palm Beach County.
This news seems to throw a
wrench into those plans.
Whether U.S. Sugar plans on
continuing its operations well into
the future, or if its executives sim-
ply believe that they can sell the
production portion of their com-
pany at a higher value privately is
yet to be resolved.
The original announcement
was met by-shock that the long-


classes also allow students to stay
in the community after complet-
ing their degrees.

Environmentalist groups hailed
the news as a milestone for Flori-
da, as polluted water feeding into
the Everglades could be filtered
naturally, providing a renewed
lifeline to the unique eco-system.
But locals wondered if it was
'in the best interest for Clewiston
-- a town that is synonymous with
the sugar giant.
Following the release of infor-
mation, some were hopeful that
the sale would free up lands that
were off-limits to development,
and open up new enterprises.
Work has already begun at the
local level to identify new indus-
tries, including a plan by Hendry
County to serve as the site of an
ambitious inland cargo project.

took advantage of a smaller crop
to refine Mexican sugar through
NAFTA. The raw sugar was
shipped in barges to the Port of
Tampa and transported to Clewis-
ton for processing.
In August that partnership
worked so well that the company
announced that the streamlined
mill had broken several produc-
tion records. For the first time in
its history, buoyed by the partner-
ship with Mexican companies, the
refinery easily surpassed its total
refinery output overshadowing
the record set in 2006. With less
land to work with, there is the


possibility that the company may
head more in this direction.
"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,"
Robert Coker, senior vice presi-
dent, public affairs said in Sep-
tember. "The Refinery's record
pace allowed U.S. Sugar to turn
NAFTA's open border between.
the United States and Mexico into
an opportunity."
