Raiders win Muck Bowl 19-14


Glades Central wins
Muck Bowl for the
first time since 2004

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE The crown is of-
ficially back at Raider Nation.
After defeating the Pahokee
Blue Devils, 19-14, in the Nov. 15
Muck Bowl game at Lair Field,
one thing was certainly clear:
Glades Central is now the Muck's
finest team ... at least for another


year.
The Raiders, who won their
first Muck Bowl since 2004,
came away victorious mostly
on the strength of their defense,
which has given up an average
of only 6.5 points per game for
the season.
Gregory Dent, arguably one
of Glades Central's best athletes,
was the star of the game.
He caught one of the Raiders'
three interceptions in the game,
while hauling in both of Glades
Central's touchdown catches
from junior quarterback L.J.


Thomas (8-for-18 passing, 100
yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT).
After Pahokee senior running
back Vincent Smith (29 carries,
136 yards) scored on a 1-yard run
to begin the game, Glades Cen-
tral just took over from there.
However, Glades Central's
swagger would not be on dis-
play before Pahokee outside
linebacker Brandin Hawthorne
placed a ferocious hit on Thom-
as in their opening drive.
The big hit by Hawthorne was
the Blue Devils' best play of the
game, as he- forced the fumble,


with Pahokee junior lineman
Doral Willis recovering the ball
to set up Smith's score.
Later in the opening frame,
Thomas led the Raiders to a
beautifully orchestrated drive,
which culminated in a 19-yard
touchdown pass to Dent.
With the score tied up a 7-7
going into the second frame, Pa-
hokee just couldn't stop Glades
Central's high-powered offense.
Glades Central, which averag-
es 38 points per game, was high-
lighted by Antwon Chisolm's
17-yard touchdown run in the


Raiders post Muck win: One year's bragging rights


Submitted photo/Nathaniel Hannah
Following a handful of losses to the Pahokee Blue Devils in recent years, the Glades Central Raiders posted an
impressive victory over the neighboring team during this year's Muck Bowl. The final score of the game stood at
19 to 14.

PBSO deputy charged with fraud


Suspect
reportedly stole
$200,000 from ATM

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PALM BEACH COUNTY A
deputy from the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO)
was booked on charges of
mortgage fraud and larceny
Nov. 12.
Aaron T. Strong, 36, faces
two counts each of mortgage
fraud and structuring transac-
tions to evade reporting re-
quirements, in addition to one
count of money laundering.


Prior to the arrest, the dep-
uty, hired by the sheriff's office
in 2002, served as an officer in
District Five, which covers the
unincorporated areas of the
Glades.
The deputy was released
from jail on '$32,000 bond the
same day, according to the
sheriff's office booking blotter.
Now, if convicted of the
aforementioned felony charg-
es, he could be facing up to 30
years in prison, according to
the Fla. State Statutes.
Cash stolen from
ATM
According to an arrest re-


port, detectives spoke with
Eric Schreider, a co-owner of a
West Palm Beach-area Texaco
gas station, on March 15, 2007.
It was revealed that Mr.
Schreider hired the deputy, a
longtime friend of his, on Sept.
5, 2005 to manage cash gener-
ated at Oasis Market in West
Palm Beach.
The suspect, according to
the victim, was supposed to
remove cash from a drop safe,
count it, use some of the cash
to refill the gas station's ATM
machine and deposit the re-
maining cash in the bank.
The suspect was reportedly

The Raiders' running game
was efficient throughout, pow-
ered by the duo of Chisolm (10
carries, 86 yards) and senior run-
ning back Antonio McCloude (13
carries, 61 yards).
Glades Central scored again
in the second quarter when Dent
(two catches, 27 yards) caught
his second touchdown from
Thomas, an 8-yard pass.
Going into halftime, Glades
Central led Pahokee by a score

BELLE GLADE The state at-
torney's office indicted Carl Ver-
een Nov. 13 on charges of two
recent area shootings.
The 15-year-old old faces two
felony charges of attempted first-
degree murder with a firearm
and attempted felony murder -
one count each.
It must be noted that the
charges, initiated by the sheriff's
office on Oct. 24, was upheld last
week by the grand jury of the
15th Judicial Circuit.
The incident
According to a probable
cause affidavit provided by the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of-
fice (PBSO), the defendant was
charged with the shooting of two
17-year-old teenage boys.
The incident, which reported-
ly took place on Oct. 18, sparked
an outcry from residents, of the
Glades area, which was still reel-
ing from several prior shootings.
The two most notable shoot-
ings were the Sept. 22 shooting
of Glades Central Raiders defen-
sive back Byron Blake and the
Sept. 27 shooting death of Paho-
kee Blue Devils linebacker Nor-
man 'Pooh' Griffith.

Glades Day loses


Moore Haven finishes
season strong with a
big win

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE Glades Day's
regular season is now completed,
but not in the way they would
have liked.
In the Gators 28-13 loss to Ju-
piter Christian, a glaring weakness'
was badly exposed yet again.
The defense may have al-
lowed Clewiston's Darris Hughes
and Okeechobee's Lonnie Pryor
to rush for more than 300 yards
each on them in their early-sea-
son loses to the two teams.
But Glades Day hadn't allowed
one team to have three players
rush for more than 100 yards in
a game.
That is, until they clashed
with the defending Class 1B state
champions, who are now riding a
23-game winning streak heading
into the playoffs this week.
It was expected that Eagles
fullback Will Powers would rush
for more than 100 yards against
Glades Day he finished with 22
carries for 113 yards, including
a 4-yard touchdown run in the
opening quarter.
However, it was arguably the
play of quarterback Marshyl Roth-
man that propelled Jupiter Chris-
tian to victory on Friday, Nov. 14.
The quarterback, already lim-
ited by an injury to his throwing
shoulder, threw only three pass-
es, with two completions for 23
yards.
Unfortunately for Glades Day,
one of Rothman's throws was


a 15-yard touchdown strike to
wideout Danny Meyer later in the
first half.
With the Gators down 13-0 go-
ing into halftime, they knew that
their offense would have to click
on all cylinders if it wanted to pull
off the upset win.
In short, it just didn't happen
for them, save for a third-quarter
67-yard touchdown run by eighth-
grade running back Kelvin Taylor
(11 carries for 88 yards).
Rothman rushed for two fourth
quarter touchdowns to seal Jupi-
ter Christian's win.
Rothman, who finished with
15 carries for 169 yards, scored on
a 66-yard run early in the fourth,
followed by a 1-yard score to end
the game.
Jupiter Christian tailback Aus-
tin Lewis, who ran in a 2-point
conversion after Rothman's 66-
yard touchdown, led all runners
with 19 carries for 172 yards.
In all, though Glades Day's
pass defense looked effective, the
run defense allowed a season-
high 451 yards on an astoninsh-
ing 56 carries to Jupiter Christian.
Bo Schlecter finished with
7-for-15 passing with 106 yards
and a touchdown, including a
46-yard strike to Alex Mann in the
fourth quarter.
Jupiter Christian, the state's,
unaminous No. 1 team in Class
1B, according to the latest and fi-
nal Associated Press High School
poll, finished the regular season
with a 10-0 record and is expect-
ed to repeat as state champions
next month.
Glades Day, who began the
season as the AP's No. 1 team in
Class 1A, received no votes in the
season's final poll as they head


regular-season

into the Class 1A playoffs with a yard kickoff return by Blackmon,

defensive team.
Moore Haven 58, Central
Fla. Christian Orlando 20:
The Terriers enjoyed their
three-hour bus ride home from
Orlando on Nov. 14 after pulling
off an impressive season-ending
victory.
Though Moore Haven's young
defense allowed 20 first-half
points to the Eagles, the offense
came back to life, scoring 46 first-
half points of their own.
Dalton Britt (7-for-17 passing,
181 yards, 4 TDs) threw for three
touchdowns in the first half, in-
cluding an opening 32-yard strike
to wideout Elazarus Blackmon,
his only catch of the game.
After Central Fla. Christian
quarterback Luke Brigham threw
for a 16-yard touchdown to Dar-
ius Lis to put the Eagles ahead,
8-7, in the opening quarter, the
Terriers scored three consecutive
touchdowns.
Those scores included a 77-


Okeechobee manhandles Tigers tSTATA


Luckily, it was a contest that
really meant nothing more than
bragging rights between the op-
posite ends of Lake Okeechobee
and a featured match up of two
of the best running backs in Flor-
ida. The Brahmans and Tigers
both had already secured playoff
berths. Both teams were hoping
to finish the regular season 8-2,
for the Tigers it was a record that
most local supporters thought
unimaginable at the outset of the
year. In the end, Clewiston fin-
ished with a highly respectable
S,7-3 record, a perfect 4-0 in dis-
trict play, with losses against top
ranked Glades Central, Plantation
American Heritage and the Class
4A Brahmans.
Okeechobee took the opening
kickoff and marched 67 yards on 8
snaps to go on top when quarter-
back Garrett Madrigal hit speedy
wideout Mike Minando with a 24-
yard pass. The Tigers came roar-
ing right back with a clock-eating
12 play drive, covering 80 yards.
Senior tailback Darris Hughes
scampered the final 13 yards on
a sweep with two minutes left in
the quarter. The biggest play on
the drive was a pass from Isandro
Marquez to fullback Joey Cor-
dova in the flats that got turned
up field for an impressive 22-yard
gain with several Brahmans taken
along for the ride. The long drive
and keeping the ball out of the
hands of the Brahmans' offense
might have been a strategy for a
chance to win the game. Unfor-
tunately, the rest of the night was
largely made up of short offensive
drives by the Tigers and no ability
to control the ball.
The Tiger defense played the
first half with all of their heart.
Just when it appeared that they
would head to intermission with a
7-7 game, Brahmans star tailback
Lonnie Pryor caught a Madrigal
swing pass and avoided tacklers
to score from 21 yards out with
only 23 seconds remaining.
The second half offered some
early opportunities for the Tiger of-
fense. They recovered an onside
kickoff at midfield to begin the
half but went three and out. The

Brahmans then moved 80 yards
and scored on a two-yard dive
by Pryor. Tiger Damion Smith
returned the ensuing kickoff 46
yards to the Brahman 49. On
third down, Okeechobee picked
off an errant Marquez pass. It was
the first of four interceptions by
the Brahmans during the second
half.
Clewiston finally got a drive
going in the final period when
defensive back John Williams
picked off a Madrigal pass and
returned it 12 yards to the Tiger
47. Marquez got hot and hooked
up on passes to Jamarcus Smith
for 17, Damarian Alien for 11 and
and Damion Smith 7. Jamarcus
Smith also chipped in with a 12-
yard run. Hughes got the final 5
yards with 7:59 left in the game.
But it was too little and too late
for Clewiston. Their defense was
worn out from the clock control-
ling Brahmans' offense and just
ran out of gas.
Defensively, Leonard Newton
made 10 solo tackles and had 2
assists from his linebacker posi-
tion. Defensive tackle LaMarcus
Thicklin also had a solid night
with 8 tackles and 2 assists.
In the battle of the, great run-
ning backs,, Tiger Darris Hughes
more than held his own with 148
yards on 18 carries and some
hard, tackle busting efforts. Pryor
had 185 yards on 26 runs and 45
of those came late in the game
against an exhausted Tiger de-
fense. Hughes finished the year
with 1,797 yards rushing, far
eclipsing Thomas Washington's
1,527 yards in 1990. From a ca-
reer perspective, Hughes ended
with 3,009 yards rushing on 379
rushes. That places .him as the
second best all time rusher be-
hind Washington's 3,753 yards on
533 carries. Hughes average per
carry of 9.1 yards was the highest
ever for a Tiger, bettering Kelvin
Robinson's 8.0 average during the
1992 season.
The Tigers will host Mulberry.
this Friday in the first round of the
Class 2A regional playoffs. Mul-
berry was runner-up to Tampa
Catholic in District 2A-5. The Pan-


others were 7-4 in the regular sea-
son and most of their losses were
against good teams and by close
scores. The winner of this contest
will likely travel to face Tampa
Catholic the following week.

Good medicine for the soul


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
"A cheerful heart is good medi-
cine, but a crushed spirit dries up
the bones" (Proverbs 17:22).
Science has finally caught up
with these words in the Bible that
King Solomon wrote some 3,000
plus years ago.
Laughter is good for our health
and now scientists know why.
Researchers at the University
of Maryland found that when 20
healthy volunteers smiled and
laughed while watching a com-
edy, their blood flow increased
by 22 percent, about the same
increase caused by aerobic exer-
cise.
But when volunteers watched
tension-filled scenes, their blood
flow decreased 35 percent.
The researchers stated that
laughing apparently causes the
endothelium, the tissue that lines
blood vessels, to expand, which
increases blood flow.
Laughter may also. improve
arterial health by reducing men-
tal stress, which constricts vessels
and cuts blood flow.


A suggested healthy lifestyle
would include 30 minutes of ex-
ercise three times a week, and 15
minutes of hearty laughter each
day.
If we would live by the princi-
ples God gives us, we would not
only live healthier and happier
lives, but our relationships would
improve exponentially.
We can't improve on God's
plan.
The wisest thing is to get in on
it.
We can be blessed if we don't
take life so seriously that we miss
out on laughing often.
It's good medicine for the
body and the soul. In that spirit,
let me share with you some "holy
humor".
1. Two pastors were standing
by the side of the road, admiring
their brand new sign that read,
"The End Is Near! Turn Around
Now --Before It's Too Late!"
A car speeds past, the driver
yelling, "Leave us alone, you re-
ligious nuts!"
Seconds later they heard from
around the curve ahead screech-


ing tires, screams, a big splash,
and then silence.
One pastor turns to the other,
"Jim, don't you think we should
have just said, "Bridge Out"?
2. The minister was preoccu-
pied with thoughts of how he was
going to ask the congregation to
come up with more money than
they were expecting for repairs to
the church building.
To make matters worse, on the
day he was going to approach the
congregation, the regular organ-
ist was sick, and a substitute was
brought in at the last minute.
The substitute wanted to know
what to play.
"Here's a copy of the service,"
the minister replied, "But you'll
have to think of something to play
after I make the announcement
about the finances."
During the service, the min-
ister paused and said, "Brothers
and Sisters, we are in great diffi-
culty.
The roof repairs cost twice as
much as we expected, and we
need $4,000 more.
Any of you who can pledge


$100 or more, please stand up."
At that moment, the substitute
organist played "The Star Span-
gled Banner."
And that is how the substitute
became the regular organist!
3. A minister waited in line to
have his car filled with gas just be-
fore a long holiday weekend.
The attendant worked quickly,
but there were many cars ahead
of him in front of the service sta-
tion.
Finally, the attendant motioned
him toward a vacant pump.
"Reverend," said the young
man, "sorry about the delay. It
seems as if everyone waits until
the last minute to get ready for a
long trip."
The minister smiled, "I know
what you mean. It's the same in
my business."
I close with this note from
Ralph, age 11: "Dear Pastor, I
liked your sermon on Sunday. Es-
pecially when it was finished."


The concept of Thanksgiving!


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Perhaps we should rethink the
term "Thanksgiving Day."
Thanksgiving was never meant
to be shut up in a single day.
But that is what we have done
with Thanksgiving.
Perhaps we should set aside,
one day for grumbling call it
"Grumbling Day" and then
live the other 364 days in a truly
thankful manner!
I don't think the Lord wants
any pompous proclamation of
thanks on one Thursday in No-
vember as much as He wants a
little humble service freom us ev-
ery day in the year.
In the Charles Schultz cartoon
strip "Peanuts" there is a little
character called "Pigpen."
You can barely see him for
the cloud of dust that always sur-
rounds him.
Pigpen is rarely clean.
He who is rarely clean is not a
clean person and he who is rarely
..].- *'- I- ,1 .


thankful is not a thankful person.
I like what Cicero once said:
"A thankful heart is not only the
greatest virtue, but the parent of
all other virtues."
It is not the happy people who
are thankful; it is the thankful
people who are happy.
Happiness and gratitude can-
not be separated.
Over an over again the Bible
admonishes us to be thankful to
God.
"Enter into His gates with
thanksgiving, and into His courts
with praise. Be thankful to Him,
and bless His name. For the Lord
is good; His mercy is everlasting,
and His truth endures to all gen-
erations" (Psalm 100:4-5).
"And let the peace of God rule
in your hearts, to which also you
were called in one body; and be
thankful" (Colossians 3:15).
Christiana Georgina Rossetti
wrote, "Were there no God, we
would be in this glorious world
with grateful hearts, and not one
to thank." .


The fact that a man is thankful
implies that there must be Some-
one to be thankful to.
To whom does an athiest or a
skeptic give thanks?
Peace is seeing a sunset and
knowing Who to thank!
We should all express our
thanks to God for the things we
take for granted.
Be thankful for your mind with
which to think, reason and dis-
cern.
Be thankful for your eyes with
which you can see, observe, read
and enjoy.
Be thankful for your ears with
which you can hear and listen to
such wonderful things as a baby's
gurgle, a child's laugh, the sound
of the wind in the trees, the rush
of a waterfall, the song of a bird.
Be thankful for your nose with
which you can enjoy the wonder-
ful aroma of pumpkin pie, hot cof-
fee, apple blossoms in the spring,
burning leaves in the Fall.
Be thankful for your mouth
with which you can kiss those


whom you love.
Be thankful for your tongue
with which you can speak to oth-
ers and share your joys and sor-
rows.
Be thankful for your hands
with which you can touch, feel,
squeeze, hold, heal and write
needed cards and letters of en-
couragement.
Be thankful for you feet' with
which you can skip, run, walk,
and go into the house of the Lord,
as well as into the homes of those
who need your love and care.
Most of all, be thankful for
your heart and spirit with which
you. can love God with all your
being, and love your neighbor as
yourself.
Let us be thankful for the
"little" things in life which, when
reflected upon, are really the big-
gest blessings we have.
"Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits"
(Psalm 103:2).
Let us not commit the sin of
ingratitude.

'God Don't Make No Junk'


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Gallstones will get your atten-
tion! Anybody who has had them
can tell you they will captivate all
of your energies and cause a re-
.direction of life-until they are re-
moved.
I remember the occasion when
my gallstones and I parted com-
pany. I could go back to a normal
life; not worrying about the next
attack or what I couldn't eat or if
I'd be interrupted in the middle
of something and double over in
pain. Shortly after the operation,
I was told to get out of bed and
stand next to it. My first instinct
was that "all my insides are go-
ing to fall out." I was assured they
wouldn't and that I'd be fine.
I was fine, in fact, and little by
little came to realize that every-
thing was returning to its' rightful
place, less the stones. The inci-
sions were healing, the need for
medications was diminishing, my
being seemed to know what to
do without any further interven-
tions or directions on my part.
I reflected on the words of
the Psalmist, "Behold, thou art
fearfully and wonderfully made
(Psalm 139:13)" and how many
forces were involved to restore
me to a fuller, more active life.
Somehow, some way the body
knew how to heal itself: some-
how the revelation and healing


arts that have been given to hu-
manity are able to work together
with God's building within us our
own instincts and capacities for
getting well.
It seems that each night as I
watch the news, a new treatment
or new discovery or breakthrough
is announced. This occurs not
only in the realm of the physical
self, but also in our mental and
spiritual selves too.
Studies have shown that
people tend to forget over time
"bad" things that have happened
to them; memories are forgot-
ten and things that once plagued
us or kept us from feeling good
about ourselves are given another
perspective. We heal our minds
as well as our bodies; worries
fade away in time and many of
the things people worry about
never come to pass anyway.
People heal themselves spiri-
tually; that also seems to be built
into us if we accept God's forgive-
ness or come to atone, or rec-
oncile, our differences. Spiritual
healing takes place and living be-
comes full of joy once more.
I can think of times when per-
sons have shared a "deep, dark
secret" and then a great burden
was lifted from them. There are
times when it takes reassurance
that we are not intended to go
on punishing ourselves or feeling
bad about ourselves; God does
not intend it to be that way and


always provides the means to re-
turn to a whole being.
Psalm 139 reminds us that the
Lord "has searched me out and
known me" (v.1) and that He is
always with us, that God has knit
us together from the beginning
(v.12) and that we unfold in our
growing as God has intended.
The Psalmist reflects on the
wonder of all of God's creating us
and then asks God to continue to
perfect him, knowing that his cre-
ation points to a greater creation
one day with God in Heaven and
with everlasting life. That is the fi-
nal perfection; as we see parts of
it here and realize what God does
in us and for us.
Perfection? We're not there
yet; but we get closer and closer
with each passing day.
One person put it very suc-
cinctly when she said "God don't
make no junk!" and she had it
right. The Psalmist, saw it too
many years before.
Every now and again, I stop to
think about healing and the pow-
ers within and without that keep
us going. We are truly "fearfully
and wonderfully made."
God certainly doesn't make
any junk; He makes us well from
the beginning and gives us the
means to make us well ever af-
terwards, and long into eternity.
Well made; no junk but look at
the Master who crafted us!

Funds for loans still



in ample supply


By Jon Geitner
Senior Vice President,
Seacoast National Bank
For the last several months
rarely a day goes by that we
aren't exposed to some distress-
ing news concerning the condi-
tion of our financial institutions
and their inability to meet the
lending needs of the communi-
ties they serve. The truth of the
matter is many of them strayed
from prudent lending practices
under pressure to produce high-
er earnings in a very competi-
tive marketplace. In some rare
instances banks totally ignored
basic rules of the credit game in
order to improve both their bot-
tom line and market share.
Is there a shortage of money
to lend in small town America?
The short answer is "No." There
is an ample supply of funding
available to meet all types of
credit needs, including home
mortgages, consumer loins,
and commercial loans. How-
ever, as a result of the problems
currently being experienced by
many banks, the underwriting
criteria used by lenders is be-
ing subjected to higher levels of
scrutiny.
Another way of looking at
the situation is by comparing
our present circumstances to
the old adage describing the
swing of the pendulum. In the
last several years decision mak-


ers might "stretch" or entirely ig-
nore one or more of the 5 "C's"
of credit underwriting, without
a significant mitigating circum-
stance. As more loans continue
to default, lenders have been
forced to revisit their credit
review process swinging the
pendulum back to a more con-
servative approval process. The
underwriting process remains
the same, but banks,are much
less likely to make an exception
to one of the judgment criteria,
and, if they do, there must be
a strong offsetting factor in one
of the remaining principles. As
a result there has been the ap-
pearance of a "tightening" of
credit when, in reality, there is
sufficient money.
Over the next couple of
weeks I will be writing a series
of articles to help the reader un-
derstand how a bank looks at a
request for credit and the factors
we consider in coming to our
decision. Although competing
banks differ in many ways we all
follow basic underwriting stan-
dards built around the 5 "C's"
of credit. These are Character,
Collateral, Capacity, Capital, and
Credit. When sensible delibera-
tion is applied to the combing-
tion of these five factors the out-
come should be a loan that can
be reasonably managed by the
borrower and a safe investment
for the bank.

Letters to the Editor


Light Up Pahokee
It has been a year since we
tried to bring the colors of Christ-
mas back to Pahokee after our
decorations were destroyed by
hurricane Wilma and we are
moving forward.
We launched a program
named Light Up Pahokee and the
wonderful people of South Flori-
da sent us their donations to the
tune of $12,000.
This is just the beginning for us
as we intend to raise money every
year so we can enlarge the light-
ing program to include most of
Pahokee. This year we were able
to purchase light fixtures, decora-
tions, a HUGE live tree and more.
We want to invite you all to
visit us on Dec. 8th as we kick off
the Season with a parade and a
lighting ceremony. We are plan-
ning caroling, food and candy,
hugs and smiles for all of down-
town Pahokee on that day..
The many colors of Christmas
will be returning to Pahokee after
a long wait.
Thank you
Larry Wright
Light Up Pahokee Chairman

Keep America's
dreams alive
I have a sad story to tell you
about a sweet dream that have
come to an end. Dreams are our
hope to secure our country's fu-
ture. America gives an equal op-
portunity to her citizens to devel-
op their ideas for prosperity, and
create jobs and wealth for her'
people. My heart sunk and I cried
when Marlene Kouba forwarded
the news about shutting down
sugar cane operation in Clewis-
ton, Florida. Clewiston is a small
town like my own town of Powell
and it was developed 80 years ago
when the country was experienc-
ing economic depression.
Clewiston is called America's
sweetest town it was born and
built by sugar industry. This town
is the heartland of the Florida
Everglades. The town is located
near bottom center of the Florida
state surrounded by rich black


soil known as muck that would
become its wealth. In 1931 indus-
trialist Charles Mott transferred
Clewiston and the small Southern
Sugar Co into U.S. sugar. In past
80 years since time of depression
this little sugar Co has been grow-
ing and providing jobs and eco-
nomic prosperity for the State of
Florida.. U.S. sugar has been one
of the largest sugar cane cb in the
United State providing over 1700
jobs and processing 800,000 tons
of sugar a year.
The corporation is planning
to sell 300 square miles around
Clewiston to the state, which is
part of the plan to clean the Ev-
erglades. Two sugarcane refin-
eries are located in Clewiston
(owned by U.S. Sugar Corpora-
tion) and South Bay (Okeelanta
Corp.). Florida has six mills: two
are located in Belle Glade, one in
Clewiston, one in South Bay, and
two in Pahokee. $2,004,300,000 is
generated in the state of Florida
each year by the production of
sugar and corn sweetener prod-
ucts.
Bear in mind that the shrink-
ing profit margins have lead to
the closer of 53 sugar beet and
cane facilities since 1985. Every
one of these old sugar cane and
beet facilities were build by early
industrialists whom had a dream
for America.
Their dream has been profit-
able for example sugar indus--
try contributes over $10 billion
dollars annually to our nation's
economy. Sugar producers have
been operating their farms with
not much of increase in their cost
-of- living for past two decades.
According to the Bureau of La-
bor Statistic for sugar producers,
the cost of production has not
remained static like their loan
rate. Fuel costs have skyrocketed
by 177 percent, wages are up
99 percent, and equipment and
chemical cost have soared by 64
percent. Thank God that there is a
good news for U.S. sugar farmers
in the new 2007 Farm Bill, which
it was passed and signed to off-
set a fraction of sugar producer's
higher costs of production and
shrinking profit margins. The

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-

Savior on Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008. She
was 86.
Sue was born Susie Lee Pitts on
Sept. 27, 1922, in the community of
Thigpin, Ga. She was raised in North

1952 with her two sons, George and
Roy Burch.
Known for her great cooking
ability throughout the town of Belle
Glade, Sue was employed by the
Dixiana Restaurant. At the highlight
of her career she was asked to man-
age the restaurant. The customers
were so upset that she was no long-
er cooking the food that the owners
were forced to put her back in the
,kitchen.
t.rHer tremendous cooking ability is
what led Sue to the love of her life, a
customer named Bob Durant. They
were married June 26, 1965. Bob
preceded her in death and they are
now in each others arms in heaven.
Sue will be greatly missed by her
loving children, George' (Bebe)
Burch, Roy (Susan) Burch, Debbie
O'Neill, and Don Durant; her seven
grandchildren; and ten great-grand-
children. Her surviving siblings in-
clude three sisters and three
brothers.


Podcasts from the Internet: Most are free!


By Diane Timmons
Okeechobee News
First, I want to say this col-
umn is not just for the tech savvy.
Please read it through and then
decide if it's worth it to find pod-
casts on your computer.
We are going to explore the
concept of the podcast today. A
podcast is a downloadable radio-
style show, organized by show
and episodes within shows. But, I
like this definition better "Person-
al On Demand broadCASTING"
or PODCAST.
Okay, personal on demand
broadcasting. What can we do
with that?
As it turns out, there are many
things we can learn from pod-
casts. I have found podcasts to be
the most eye-opening, fun, and
educational media that are on the
Internet today.
Turns out I have been listening
to podcasts since about 2005 and
didn't even know it. CBS, the TV
station, was doing podcasts about
its TV show Big Brother. I would
listen with my computer, using
Windows Media Player, to sev-
eral people commenting about
the show. And there is no need
to own' an iPod or portable MP3
player. Just because your grand-
kids all carry them, doesn't mean
you need to own one to listen to
podcasts.
While doing a little research
for today's column, I found out
that podcasts were introduced in
about 2001, but didn't really get
going until 2003. That's relatively
new to my way of thinking.
My podcastworld really opened
up when I discovered iTunes. Do
you like to knit or are you into
crafts? Would you like to listen to
your favorite programs anytime?
The iTunes store has over 100,000

podcast episodes available from
tons of independent creators
and also from big names such as
HBO, ESPN and The New York
Times. Today, anyone can down-
load the software and start roam-
ing iTunes for its rich content. Let
me add one more thing that is
important to seniors and anyone
that needs to be frugal with their
money. I rarely spend any money
on iTunes. That's right, most pod-
casts are absolutely free!
iTunes
Start out by putting www
itunes.com in the address line of
your browser. You will be trans-
ferred to an Apple site that seems
to be all about music and the iPod
music device. Don't let that throw
you off track. Download and in-
stall the software so you can get
to Apple's storefront when you
double click the software icon.
The icon will be added to your
desktop during the installation.


Hot or cold?

It's that time of year when the
turkey isn't the only thing getting
stuffed.
Many people stuff themselves
with lots of good food around the
holidays!
Please remember food safety
when preparing your holiday
meal.
It doesn't matter if you've
cooked many turkeys, or if this
year might be your first, you still
need to remember food safety
when you thaw, prepare, and
cook your holiday bird.,
You don't want to serve up a
helping of bacteria called Salmo-
nella do you?

intestinal tract.
Salmonella typically lives in the
intestines of animals and humans
and exit the body through feces.
Humans become infected
most frequently through contami-
nated food sources, such as poul-
try, meat and eggs.
Typically, people with salmo-
nella infection develop diarrhea,
fever and abdominal cramps
within 12 to 72 hours.
So to make sure Salmonella
isn't an un-invited guest at your
holiday meal, take a few mo-
ments to review some food safety
tips:
Your first thought should be
how to thaw out your turkey
safely.
Give yourself plenty of time to
leave your turkey in the refrigera-
tor until it's fully thawed.
Do not leave your turkey in the
sink overnight!

Although flat and open, the sunset.


Temperatures between 40*
and 140*Fahrenheit is considered
the "danger zone" because food
borne bacteria can multiply rapid-
ly within this temperature range.
Bacteria can be present on
raw turkey and chicken, which
can contaminate your hands,
countertops, and sinks.
Remember to wash your
hands and any surfaces that your
raw turkey has come into contact
with.
It's safer to cook your stuff-
ing in a separate dish rather than
inside the turkey, but if you are
preparing the "traditional" stuffed
turkey, rinse the inside of the tur-
key thoroughly with clean water.
Stuff the turkey just before you
are ready to put it in the oven.

USDA Announces amended Farm Bill provisions


INI Florida Owners and op-
erators of farms with 10 or fewer
base acres now have the oppor-
tunity to receive payments for the
2008 Direct and Counter-cyclical
Payment Program. On Oct. 13,
President George W Bush signed
a bill that made amendments to
the 2008 Farm Bill. These amend-
ments apply to farms with crop
acreage bases of 10 acres or less.
These changes and clarifications
allow some producers more flex-
ibility in farming practices and
create new sign-up opportuni-
ties with new deadlines for some
farms. The amendments also
apply to the new Supplemental
Revenue Assistance (SURE) Pro-
gram.
10-Base Acre Limit Changes
As originally enacted under
the 2008 Farm Bill, direct and
countercyclical payments (DCP)
could not be made with respect
to farms with crop acreage bases
of 10 acres or less. The new law
makes that provision inapplicable
for the 2008 crop year. Related to
this, producers on a farm with 10
acres, or less of base may now,
under the new law, enroll their
farms until Nov. 26, in the 2008
DCP program. This extension of
the original Sept. 30, deadline
only applies to producers who
were previously excluded be-
cause of the minimum acreage
requirement. USDA began issuing
payments to producers on farms
with 10 base acres or less who
had already enrolled in the DCP


program soon after the President
signed the new law.
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA) will now resume allowing
reconstitutions for farms with 10
acres of base or less according to
normal reconstitution rules and
policy. Eligible producers may
sign up for DCP at any FSA office
or enroll on the FSA website at:
www.fsa.usda.gov/dcp click on
Access eDCP Services.
Supplemental Revenue Assis-
tance Program (SURE) Changes
Under SURE in the 2008 Farm
Bill, producers seeking disaster
benefits must generally have ob-
tained crop insurance or cover-
age under the Non-insured crop
disaster Assistance Program
(NAP) for all crops on all farms.
Under the new law (P.L. 110-398),
producers with crops that had
2009 crop insurance sales closing
dates before Aug. 14, may pay a
fee through Jan. 12, 2009, to par-
ticipate in SURE. Producers may
make their SURE participation fee
payments to their local FSA office
at this time.
The SURE program fee is
equal to the fee for catastrophic
coverage. Payment of the SURE
program fee will not make the
producer eligible for insurance
coverage. Producers also have a
new minimum loss threshold un-
der SURE. Under the new law, to
qualify for payments, there must
be a production loss of at least
10 percent for at least one crop
of economic significance on the


farm. Under the SURE program,
the new law provides that when
a second crop is planted after the
first crop was prevented from be-
ing planted, or if such first crop
failed, the second planting will
not count toward the SURE pro-
gram guarantee or total farm
revenue. This is true except in
areas where double-cropping is
a normal practice. Producers also
are not required to purchase crop
insurance or a NAP policy for the
second crop.
By provision of the new stat-
ute, the purchase of insurance or
a NAP policy for grazed acreage
is no longer a requirement for the
SURE program. However, such in-
surance is required as a condition
for payment for the livestock feed
program, tree assistance program
and the emergency livestock,
honeybees and farm-related fish
programs.
In addition, the new law
amends SURE eligibility so that
crop insurance or NAP coverage is
no longer required for crops that
are not of economic significance
or those where the administrative
fee required to buy NAP coverage
exceeds 10 percent of the value of
the coverage.
Producers can contact their lo-
cal FSA office for more informa-
tion regarding SURE program im-
plementation. NAP (Non-Insured
crop disaster Assistance Program)

Drug use is down overall among teens, survey says


TALLAHASSEE-Lt. Governor
Jeff Kottkamp announced signifi-
cant reductions in cigarette smok-
ing and binge drinking among
Florida's middle school and high
school students since 2000, as re-
ported by the 2008 Florida Youth
Substance Abuse Survey.
In contrast to the significant
reductions being made each year,
the 2008 survey confirms the con-
tinuing trend of prescription drug
abuse and highlights the need for
future prevention efforts.
The Florida Office of Drug
Control, state agencies, law en-
forcement, substance abuse pre-
vention coalitions, schools and
community stakeholders have
partnered to reduce substance
abuse across the state.
"Children are Florida's most
vulnerable residents, and pro-
tecting them from the dangers of
substance abuse is tremendously
important," said Lt. Governor
Kottkamp.
"Drug abuse threatens the
health and safety of our children


and their families. The survey is
vital to understanding how to pre-
vent drug use."
According to the survey, which
has been administered every year
since 2000, drug use among
Florida's middle and high school
students is down in 10 of 11 areas
consistently measured over the
history of the survey.
From 2007 to 2008, among
middle and high school students,
past 30-day use of alcohol and
binge drinking declined signifi-
cantly.
Long-term trends documented
from 2000 to 2008 include:
Cigarette smoking is cut in
half: The past 30-day use of ciga-
rettes among middle and high
schoolers is at 9 percent, down
from 18 percent in 2000.
Binge drinking declines by
4 percentage points since 2000:
Binge drinking, defined as hav-
ing five or more drinks in a row
sometime during the previous
two weeks, currently stands at 15
percent, down from 19 percent in


2000.
Use ot any ii. I drug other
than marijuatia continues to de-
cline: The percent of students
who report using any illegal drug
other than marijuana has de-
clined by 24 percent since 2000
and now stands at a historically
low 6.6 percent.
Early initiation continues
to decline: Research confirms
that if our youth make it to adult-
hood without experimenting with
drugs, they are far less likely to
start using later in life. The 2008
survey documents an important
decline in the percentage of high
school students who first used al-
cohol (by 8.6 percentage points),
tobacco (by 19.5 percentage
points), and marijuana (by 6.7
percentage points) before the age
of 14.
New question on over-
the-counter drugs: For the first
time, middle schoolers were
asked about their use of over-the-
counter drugs such as cold and
cough medications in order to


get high. The lifetime prevalence
rate of over-the-counter drug
abuse (4.9 percent) is higher than
the rate for any illegal drug except
marijuana.
Prescription drugs emerging
as a dangerous source of abuse:
4.5 percent of high school seniors
report abusing prescription pain
relievers in the past 30 days, and
3.8 percent report abusing pre-
scription depressants more than
any other illegal drug (excluding
marijuana). Results from the 2002
survey (the.first time this question
was asked) were nearly identical,
indicating a continuing trend in
prescription drug abuse.
"The 2008 report suggests ma-
jor progress in reducing under-
age drinking," said Office of Drug
Control Director Bill Janes.
"Prevalence rates for the vast
majority of drugs monitored by
the FYSAS have been significantly
reduced over the past eight years.
This is a testament to the tremen-
dous progress the state has made
toward enhancing the preven-


tion infrastructure in the areas of
assessment, strategic planning,
and implementation of evidence-
based programs and policies. Our
communities are making a real
difference."
"While drug use is down over-
all, parents need to be acutely
alert to the dangers posed by le-
gally accessible substance like
inhalants, alcohol, prescription
drugs, and over-the-counter med-
ications.. Parents need to do their
part to keep young people safe by
restricting the availability of these
substances within their homes
and by closely monitoring their
children's activities," Janes said.
Florida's Drug Control Strat-
egy acknowledges that there is
no one-size-fits-all approach to
ensuring that children, families,
and communities are healthy and
safe.
Florida's diverse communities
must prioritize their needs and
select the most effective strategies
that will be used to.tackle their
unique profile of substance abuse


problems.
The continued support of com-
munity anti-drug coalitions is vital
to prevention efforts throughout
the state.
In addition, the dramatic prog-
ress the state has made in reduc-
ing youth alcohol, tobacco, and
other drug use is a result of the
ongoing expansion of our com-
munity-based efforts and the sup-
port of state agencies.
Florida's youth survey mea-
sures youth substance use annu-
ally across the state, and in alter-
nate years, in each county.
The 2008 edition included
91,471 valid returns from sixth
through 12th graders in 66 of
Florida 's 67 counties. (Sarasota
County is not included among
the counties surveyed because it
chose to administer an internal
survey that is not comparable
to the Florida Youth Subslanoe
Abuse Survey.)

line at www.dcf.state.fl.us/men-

Take November to
recognize American
Diabetes Month
By Brenda Barnes

November is recognized as
American Diabetes Month.
Diabetes is a disease where
the body doesn't produce insulin
or when your body doesn't use
insulin properly.
Insulin is a hormone that your


body needs to convert sugar,
starches and other foods into en-
ergy, and of course we all need
energy for our daily lives!
Over 24 million people in the
U.S. have diabetes.
Each year over 193,000 people
die from diabetes, and its compli-
cations.
There are two different kinds
of diabetes.
Type-1 diabetes is when the
body fails to produce insulin.
People with this type have to
get daily shots of insulin to sur-


vive.
Type-2 diabetes is when the
body fails to make enough insulin
or properly use insulin.
About 90% to 95% of all di-
agnosed cases of diabetes are
Type-2 diabetes.
Typically Type-2 diabetes de-
velops after the age of 45.
Some of the signs of diabetes
can include excessive thirst, ex-
treme hunger, unusual weight
loss, increased tiredness, in-
creased irritability and blurry vi-
sion. Sometimes family history


plays a part in whether a person
develops diabetes, but other fac-
tors such as being overweight or
lack of exercise appear to play a
role as well.
Also, African Americans, His-
panics and Native Americans are
at a higher risk of diabetes.
When a person has diabetes,
they also have an increased risk
of heart attack, stroke, kidney dis-
ease, or blindness.
There is no known cure for
diabetes, but there is treatment.
Diet, exercise and new medi-


cines can prevent or delay much
of the illness and complications
of diabetes. Did you know that
there is also something known as
pre-diabetes?
Pre-diabetes is a blood glucose
level higher than normal, but not
high enough to be diagnosed as
diabetes.
Ask your doctor about getting
tested. If your number is between
110-125, then you are in the pre-
diabetes range.
Keep in mind that a 5-10% re-
duction in body weight produces


a 58% reduction in diabetes.
Take action now! Get at least
30 minutes of physical activity ev-
ery day.
Dance, walk the dog, play with
.your kids!
Eat healthier. Learn serving
sizes.
Do as your mom told you, eat
your vegetables! Get tested!

mation Officer and Planning Consul-
tant for the Hendry & Glades Count
Health Departments).

Game
Continued From Page 1

of 19-7.
But the Blue Devils cut the lead
to 19-14 in the third frame, cour-
tesy of a fumble recovery by of-
fensive lineman Willis Bowles.
The score happened after
Smith fumbled the ball at Glades
Central's 1-yard line on a third-
and-goal play.
After that touchdown, it was a
defensive effort by both teams the
rest of the way.
Pahokee senior Nu'Keese Rich-
ardson, who split time at quarter-
back with sophomore Emmanuel
Perez, was thoroughly ineffective
on offense in the big game.
For the first time in Richard-
son's career, he was held to these


eye-popping numbers: 0-for-7
passing, 0 yards and two costly
interceptions.
That's almost entirely a testa-
ment to Glades Central's fero-
cious defense, which has always
seemed to come up big this sea-
son when it mattered most.
Glades Central senior defen-
sive back Cartavious Baldwin had
arguably his best game of his ca-
reer, picking off two passes.
One of them was off Richard-
son, who tried his best to bring
the Blue Devils back in the first
half from the 19-7 deficit.
Perez (6-for-13 passing, 48
yards, 1 INT) also had lots of
trouble finding his receivers in Pa-
hokee's quest to make a stirring
comeback win.
Though the sophomore quar-
terback was statistically ineffec-


tive, it was his first big game at
the position.
Fortunately for him, he'll be at
the helm for the next two Muck
Bowls.
He can take this game as a
learning experience and a build-
ing block for later contests.
In Pahokee's case, they played
their hearts out in honor of Nor-
man Griffith, the team's fallen
hero.
'In fact, the former outside
linebacker, who was arguably
Pahokee's best defensive player
this season, was honored by both
teams before the game began.
Glades Central (10-0; No. 1 in
the season's latest and final Asso-
ciated Press High School Class 3A
poll) reigned supreme, taking the
Muck Bowl trophy back to Belle
Glade.


Notes: Glades Central wide-
out Rantavious Wooten, who
came into the Muck Bowl with 31
receptions, 909 yards and 12 TDs,
suffered a back injury in the open-
ing quarter of the Muck Bowl.
The four-star receiver, accord-
ing to Rivals.com, might not be
available for Glades Central's
opening-round Class 3A playoff
game against Miami-Belen Jesuit
tomorrow night.
Raiders junior quarterback L.J.
Thomas suffered a collarbone in-
jury toward the end of the game
after a tackle from Pahokee de-
fensive back Jarvis Byrd.
Thomas, who leads the Muck
area with 26 TDs, with just 4 INTs,
for 2,022 yards, is out for the rest
of the season.
Now, senior backup quar-
terback Kentavious McCoy, last


year's Muck Bowl MVP, will be
seeing significant time at the posi-
tion for the playoffs.
He'll likely be splitting time
with Alanda 'Mario' Shaw, who's
third on Glades Central's depth
chart at quarterback.
For the Pahokee Blue Devils
(8-2; No. 1 in the AP's latest and
final Class 2B poll), there is now
a total of five players who have
declared early college commit-
ments.
Byrd, who has been recruited
by the likes of several Division
I colleges, announced his oral
commitment to N.C. State on
Monday, Nov. 17.
He joins Richardson (Florida),
Hawthorne (Michigan), Smith
(Michigan) and center Jacquan
Bentley (Alabama St.) as the Blue
Devils who committed early.


Glades Central, on the other
hand, has a total of five as well.
That includes Wooten (Geor-
gia; recently changed from LSU),
offensive lineman Henry Orelus
(Florida St.; changed from LSU),
McCloude (Alabama St.), defen-
sive end/linebacker Artavious
Dowdell (Alabama St.) and re-
serve running back James Melton
(Alabama St.).
Both Glades Central and Pa-
hokee will open the playoffs at
home tomorrow night, with the
Blue Devils playing against Park-
way in the Class 2B playoffs.
Both teams are clear-cut favor-
ites to win state championships
this year, with the Class 2B and
3A state finals being played in
Orlando on Saturday, Dec. 13 and
Friday, Dec. 19, respectively.

Shooting
Continued From Page 1

Glades Central junior linebacker
Robert Hardnett, was reportedly
shot in his chest and right arm
by the 15-year-old defendant at
about 8:46 p.m. on the fateful Sat-
urday night.
The 17-year-old Glades Cen-
tral player was reportedly found
by deputies laying on the ground,
bleeding from his wounds near
the area of Southwest Sixth Street
and Southwest Avenue F at that
time.
Shortly thereafter, fellow 17-
year-old Arthur Humphries was
reportedly discovered shot in his
arm near the area of Southwest
Seventh Street and Southwest Av-
enue F.
It was also revealed, interest-
ingly, that the defendant sustained
a-gunshot wound to his back
near the area of Southwest Eighth.


Street and Southwest Avenue D,
investigators said.
Two of the victims Carl and
Robert were later transported
to Delray Medical Center, where
it was revealed that the eventual
defendant and the Glades Central
player were in serious condition.
Arthur was reportedly trans-
ported to Glades General Hos-
pital, where he was treated and
released.
FNone of the victims' injuries
were life threatening, according
to the sheriff's office.

Events leading up to
the shooting
In the early morning hours of
Oct. 19, not long after Arthur was
released from the hospital, de-
tectives met with him to find out
how the shooting occurred.
During an interview with in-
vestigators, the 17-year-old said
that he was standing on the cor-
ner of Southwest Sixth Street and


Southwest Avenue F with two of
his friends.
Authorities were informed by
the victim that the defendant, also
known as 'C.J', was riding by on
his bicycle, staring with a mean
face.
The victim later told detectives,
according to the affidavit, that the
defendant rode down Southwest
Fourth Street and turned back
around, approaching him with a
gun.
The 17-year-old told detec-
tives that the defendant said to
him, "N-----, I will slap you in your
m----- f------ mouth with this fire,
say something."
After the defendant reportedly
left the area briefly, he returned
yet again and said to the victim,
"What, you ready for this, n-----?"
After walking beside a van
larked in a nearby driveway, the
victim told authorities that he
heard someone yelling his name.
Then, suddenly, as the victim
walked from around the vehicle,


the defendant reportedly began
shooting at him.
While the victim started to run
from the defendant, according to
the affidavit, he told authorities
that he felt one of the shots hit
him.
A few days later Oct. 22 de-
tectives interviewed the victim
again at his residence, 300 N.W.
11th Street.
The victim reportedly told in-
vestigators that day the defendant
stated, "I'm gonna kill that n-----."
When detectives asked if that
was true, the victim reportedly
told them 'Yes', according to the
arrest report.
On Oct. 23 the next day au-
thorities interviewed the Glades
Central player, who stated that
both Carl and Arthur were argu-
ing, like they were 'getting ready
to fight.'
Not long after it was revealed
the Glades Central player con-
fronted the defendant in efforts
to diffuse the conflict, shots were


fired.
Several rounds were report-
edly fired, with the second one
hitting the Raiders linebacker in
the chest.
Later in that day, when a photo
lineup was shown to the Glades
Central player, he reportedly
identified the defendant as the
shooter.
Detectives also met with the
defendant about the incident,
prior to his Oct. 24 arrest.
The defendant told investiga-
tors on the night of Oct. 18, he was
riding his.bicycle down Southwest
Sixth Street as he came from the
house of Jeffrey Browning, also
known as 'Animal.'
Upon riding down the street,
the defendant said that he heard
shots being fired, not seeing any-
one nearby at that time.
The defendant later told detec-
tives that as he left his bicycle at
-an empty lot, he ran through it,
jumping a fence.
It was revealed that the defen-


dant was shot in the back when
he reached the top of the fence.
The defendant later told au-
thorities that he never had a fire-
arm, nor did he have any idea of
who shot him or who fired any
shots that night.

Arrest and charges
-After the defendant was re-
leased from the hospital, the
sheriff's office reportedly placed
him in handcuffs, taking him into
custody.
The 1 defendant was later
turned over the Jac center after
the investigation concluded that
he was the assailant in the Oct. 18
incident.
In addition to the attempted
murder charges, the defendant
faces one count each of discharge
ing a firearm in public and pos-
session of a firearm by a minor.
If convicted of these charges,
the defendant could receive a life
sentence in prison, according to
the Fla. State Statutes.

told to keep the ATM machine at
approximately $10,000.
The ATM machine system,
originally installed in Oct. 2006,
was reportedly reset manually
by the suspect after Mr. Schreider
and his co-owner, Mark Schreider,
learned to save and print reports
correctly, the arrest report said.
The arrest report said that in
Feb. 2007, Mark noticed a dis-
- crepancy amounting to a total of
$196,910 missing and unaccount-
ed for. ,
The audit was reportedly con-
ducted by comparing the total
amount of money placed into the
ATM as recorded by the suspect
against the total amount the ATM
reported, dispensing to custom-
ers through normal ATM transac-
tions.
It was revealed that there were
three locks on the ATM to have
access to cash, which included
a combination and two key loca-
tions.
Authorities were told that the
suspect was the only one at the
station to have both keys and the
combination in question.
It was also revealed by the
co-owners that a situation never
arose when someone other than
the suspect needed access to the
ATM machine.

Fraud transactions
The Schrieders told authorities
that the suspect owns multiple
homes, while recently purchas-
ing two wave runner personal
watercrafts.
The suspect also reportedly
has a child with severe medical
problems, detectives said.
The Schrieders told investiga-
tors that in 2005, the suspect's son
went to Jackson Memorial Hospi-
tal in Miami for major surgery.


In checking with the hospital,
authorities discovered that the
bills were covered by the sus-
pect's insurance, minus the co-
pays, the arrest report revealed.
It was discovered that the sus-
pect owns a total of four houses,
which include the following:
Note: The descriptions of the
four homes are printed in bold.

$188,000, with the suspect and
his ex-wife receiving a $25,550
check.
The suspect reportedly brought
*no money to the closing.
The suspect reportedly deeded
the house to his ex-wife on Oct.
30, 2006 as a divorce stipulation.
A West Palm Beach condo-
minium was reportedly pur-
chased on Sept. 30, 2004 by
the couple for $119,000.
It was reportedly financed
through two mortgages for
$111,000 and $27,750, respec-
tively.
A total of $1,589.38 was
brought to the closing by the
suspect. Another mortgage was
taken out on June 26, 2007 for
$41,500.
This time, the suspect brought
no money to the closing. He re-
ceived $10,147.46 from that trans-
action.
The property is now reportedly
under foreclosure proceedings.
Another West Palm Beach
condominium was purchased
by the suspect on Apr. 11,
2006.
The home, purchased for
$175,000, was reportedly mort-


gaged for $157,000. The suspect
had reportedlybrought $24,819.86
to the closing.
It came in the form ofa Wacho-
via Bank check that was report-
edly funded by $17,000 in cash
from the suspect, a $12,837.86
check from David and Donna
Strong, a $1,800 Wachovia official
check from Donna Busbey and
a $3,518 Wachovia official check
from the suspect. This property is
also reportedly under foreclosure
proceedings.
A home, mortgaged for
$328,000, was reportedly
purchased by the suspect on
Nov. 22, 2006.
On the same day, there was a
second mortgage on the home
for $82,000, totaling $410,000.
In applying for the loans, the
suspect reported on a Uniform
Residential Loan Application that
his gross monthly salary from the
sheriff's office was $5,485, when
it was actually $3,773, according
to the arrest report.
The suspect also reportedly
claimed that on his job with
Donnini Enterprises, he grossed
$4,410 per month, when it was
actually $2,220.
The suspect reportedly claimed
in the application that he made
$3,999 per month from the Oasis
Market job, when it was actually
$1,032.
The total stated gross monthly
income, according to the report,
was claimed by the suspect to be
$13,885 in Nov. 2006, when it was
actually $7,025 per month.
To make matters worse, au-
thorities discovered that the sus-
pect made no deposits into his
bank accounts from rentals in
Nov. 2006.
On Aug. 1, 2007, all of the sus-
pect's Wachovia accounts were
reportedly subpoenaed by au-
thorities.
Upon return on Sept. 11, 2007,
it was discovered that the suspect
had a total of $129,982.04 in cash

deposits, $101,935.60 during the
time of the Oasis thefts, accord-
ing to the police report.
It was also revealed that mon-
ey was transferred between other
Wachovia accounts, including
over $56,500 from the account of
the suspect's parents, David and
Donna.
Another $19,600 from a Bank
Atlantic account was subpoenaed
by authorities, which revealed
that the account was in the name
of Sandra Goldberg, the suspect's
mother-in-law.
Upon the conclusion of the
subpoenas, it was discovered that
there was a total of $142,075 in
cash deposits during the Oasis
theft. The suspect's wages, as re-
ported by his known employers,
was $63,534 for the time period of
the Oasis theft, which was from
Apr. 3, 2006 to Feb. 4, 2007.
On Aug. 11, 2006, the sus-
pect reportedly invested $50,000
into Palm Beach Gardens-based
Capex Construction and Devel-
opment. A total of five $10,000
checks, separately dated Aug. 11,
12 and 14, 2006, were deposited
into the suspect's Wachovia ac-
count.


Three of the checks, deposited
on Aug. 11, were reportedly done
at three different locations: two in
Palm Beach. Gardens and one in
West Palm Beach.
It was revealed that the sus-
pect's cash deposits, structured
to avoid reporting, was for the
investment in Capex. The closing
of the investment account, eight
months later, reportedly resulted
in a total of $55,951 deposited
into the suspect's account.
The finding of that is consid-
ered money laundering, accord-
ing to authorities.
Another money laundering in-
cident was discovered on Sept. 25,


2006, when the suspect deposited
two checks totaling $16,000, ac-
cording to the arrest report.
A $9,000 deposit was report
edly deposited that day.in Palm
Beach Gardens, while the $7,000
deposit was deposited in Jupi-
ter on that day, according to au-
thorities. It was revealed that the
two deposits created a balance
of $15,656.42 on Sept. 27, 2006,
greatly increasing the suspect's
net worth.
In the end, however, it netted
the suspect a grand theft charge
of over $100,000. That's in addi-
tion to the five aforementioned
charged placed on the suspect.
