PAHOKEE A significant anni-
versary will take place this week-
end for the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office (PBSO).
Tomorrow Nov. 28 marks
exactly one year since the tragic
deaths of PBSO Deputies Donta


Manuel and Jonathan Wallace.
Both men were killed in the
line of duty in the early morn-
ing hours of that fateful day after
assisting in a pursuit chase of a
stolen car.
The tragedy not only gripped
the families of the fallen heroes,
but the Pahokee community as a
whole.
Fellow officers, including
PBSO Captain Rolando Silva,
were greatly affected by the loss
as well.
News of the tragic death


spread nationwide, with a mov-
ing vigil ceremony, funeral and
burial to follow just one week
later.
Gov. Charlie Crist, along with
law enforcement and fire res-
cue officials statewide, consoled
both the Manuel and Wallace
families with touching words
and tributes at the Dec. 5, 2007
funeral ceremony.
The tribute, held at the South
Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm

WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY Picture an accident
on a pitch dark highway, involv-


ing four people and two vehi-
cles, including a freight truck.
That's exactly what hap-
pened when a head-on colli-
sion claimed the lives of two
women near South Bay on Fri-
day, Nov. 21.
According to the Fla. High-
way Patrol (FHP), Ford A. Var-
gason, 52, was traveling west-
bound on County Road 827 en
route to crossing U.S. Highway
27.


During that instance, a

the funeral all the way to Port

for the fallen heroes.
Now, a year later, the sheriff's
office, along with Rev. Patricia
Wallace, the mother of Deputy
Wallace, plan to host a remem-
brance ceremony in honor of the
two men.
The memorial tribute, entitled
'Remembering to Make a Differ-

'The Pahokee' remains a wild card for Cards


Cardinals' version of
Wildcat offense the
Pahokee involves
versatile WR even
more

By Kent Somers
The Arizona Republic

Profile: Anquan Boldin

Tune into any NFL game
this season, and there's a good
chance you'll see someone other
than a quarterback taking a snap
or two from center.
The "Wildcat" formation, with
the quarterback split wide and a
running back or receiver in the
shotgun, has spread through the
league faster than a nasty rumor.
The Cardinals employ a ver-
sion, too, and it was in their play-
book long before the Dolphins
brought the formation into vogue
this year, giving it the "Wildcat"
name.
The Cardinals called their for-
mation "Pahokee.
To do it, they put their star re-
ceiver at quarterback and let him
shake all about.
The formation is named after
receiver Anquan Boldin's home-
town and high school in Florida.
In the Pahokee, Boldin takes
the shotgun snap from center and
runs.
At least that's all he has done
so far.
"There's a variety of things we
can do," Boldin said.
"Lining up at quarterback, lin-
ing up at running back, motion-
ing out of the backfield."
The Cardinals used it a little
last year, and plans to call it more
were delayed this year when Bol-
din suffered a facial injury against
the New York Jets in the fourth
game.
But he's healthy now, and he

has lined up in the backfield 11
times in the past and took direct

tory over the San Francisco 49ers

s." this year, but he has thrown twice games, a franchise record.


Boldin's versatility makes him in his five seasons an incomple-


The "Pahokee," however, will
give him the football even more.
The Cardinals, for obvious rea-
sons, declined to say just what
they have in mind, but Boldin
could run, pass and even run the
option from that formation.
"It's just something defenses
have to prepare for,, something
extra," Boldin said.
"I think we give a variety of
looks to defenses already, but
you put something like that in, it
just gives them something else to
worry about."
The Cardinals don't plan to
use the formation an inordinate
amount.
Their strength is in the pass-
ing game, so they aren't going to
take Boldin and quarterback Kurt
Warner out of their regular spots
too often.
"If you look at a game and how
many times you want to get the
ball in 'Q's' hands, I don't think
you are ever going to feel bad
about that," Whisenhunt said.
"I don't think you can make a
living doing that because he is so
good outside."
Not everybody is crazy about
the Pahokee formation Warner,
for instance.
He prefers lining up at quar-
terback instead of receiver, where
defenders "were trying to beat
me up," Warner said.
If Boldin lining up in the back-
field is called the "Pahokee," then
the rest of the offense should be
called the "Burlington" in honor
of Warner's Iowa hometown.
"I don't like the offense," a
smiling Warner said of the Paho-
kee.
"I just know the ball is not in
my hands on those plays. It's in
a good player's hands, but not
mine."


20 years at Health Care District of Palm Beach County
I r -


HCD Marks Twenty
Year Milestone

West Palm Beach This month
the Health Care District of Palm
+ Beach County marks its 20th an-
niversary, a milestone recognized
Wednesday by the District's Board
of Commissioners.
At its meeting last week, the
Board approved a proclamation
that celebrated the wide range of
services delivered since voters of
Palm Beach County approved a
ballot referendum on November
8, 1988 to establish a health care
district "to maximize the health
and well being of Palm Beach
County residents by providing
comprehensive planning, fund-
ing, and coordination of health
care service delivery."
"The Health Care District was
launched with a challenging mis-
sion," said Board Chair Jonathan
Satter.
"Many dedicated people in our
community deserve thanks and
credit for helping the Health Care
District grow and mature into the
comprehensive health care sys-
tem it is today."
Since 1992, the District's
Trauma System has saved nearly
40,000 lives.
Every year the District protects
the health of 1.3 million residents
by delivering over two million
health services for uninsured resi-
dents, enabling uninsured expect-
ant mothers to receive more than
200,000 services from doctors
and other health care providers,
staffing registered nurses to care
for nearly 170,000 students who
make 655,000 visits to the public
school clinics, providing vision
and hearing tests to nearly 60,000
students, and treating residents
who make nearly 19,000 visits to

Tigers fall to Mulberry and exit playoffs


Season ends abruptly
for Clewiston Tiger
By Jeff Barwick

The Tigers season ended
abruptly as a fast and powerful
Panthers team scored early and
often in a Class 2A Regional Quar-
terfinals at Clewiston's Cane Field
on Friday night.
Mulberry used big as they
rolled up 301 yards rushing on the
night and a defense that stopped
the Tigers when they had to..
Mulberry (8-4) got their first
score when junior quarterback
Tony Brown kept the ball on an
option and raced 94 yards mid-
way through the opening quarter.
The run came after it appeared
the Tigers had the Panthers
pinned deep after a 58-yard punt
by Isandro Marquez, his longest
of the year.
The Tigers then used a 7-play
drive to get into position for
Isandro Marquez to nail a 36-yard
field goal.


The entire drive was tallied to
tailback Darris Hughes.
After a 15-yard kickoff return,
Hughes had 5 carries for 29
yards.
The Tigers were aided by 2
penalties against the Panther de-
fense.
But that was the only success-
ful offensive effort for Clewiston
during the opening half.
On the following kickoff, Mul-
berry's Steven Willis busted loose
and streaked for a 70-yard touch-
down return.
Clewiston had a short drive
but had to punt and the Panthers
began at their'own 26.
Wideout Jerrell Carr ran a re-
verse, checked up and threw a 39
yard completion to wideout Jus-
tin Wagstaff at the Clewiston 35.
Mulberry kept churning out
short yardage runs but enough to
get 2 first downs, the last being at
the Tiger 10.
On third down from the 2,
fullback Trent Thomas fumbled
the ball into the end zone and


Tiger senior linebacker Leonard
Newton pounced on the ball for
a touchback.
Clewiston got a drive going but
lost the ball when quarterback
Isandro Marquez was attempting
to pass and was hit at the time
he released the ball causing it to
go backwards and be ruled a lat-
eral that Mulberry recovered near
midfield.
From there, Jamar Reaves
scored on an inside reverse from
39 yards out just before intermis-
sion to post Mulberry to a 20-3
lead.
Clewiston (7-4) picked up two
touchdowns by senior tailback
Darris Hughes in the second half
on rushes of 10 and 13 yards.
But, it was too little, too late for
the Tigers.
Mulberry scored three touch-
downs of their own to keep
Clewiston and the game well un-
der control.
Hughes rushed for 244 yards
and 36 carries but the Tigers just
could not muster any other offen-


sive spark.
Marquez did complete 10
passes on 22 attempts but they
were of the short yardage variety
and only accounted for 64 yards.
"This was a very good team
that gave us looks we haven't
seen all year and it was hard to
get prepared for their offense,"
said Tiger.head coach Joe Roth.
He added, "Darris had a great
night and season. He's a special
kid who has grown so much this
year. He should get a good chance
to go on to the next level."
The Tiger defense played hard
but missed tackles and two blown
pass coverages allowed the Pan-
thers to break off some big plays.
LaMarcus Thicklin had 5 tackles
and 2 assists and defensive end
Adam Trevino had 5 tackles and
an assist.
Mulberry advanced in the
playoffs and now gets a return
engagement with district rival
Tampa Catholic, who beat them
in the regular season.
For the Tigers, the loss was dis-


appointing as they took an early
exit from the playoffs.
But, at the start of the sea-
son most observers did not offer
much hope for a winning season
and Clewiston did finish 7-4'and
were a perfect 4-0 in winning
their District Championship.

Glades Central wins Class 3A playoff opener


Pahokee and Glades
Day punch tickets to
Class 2B, 1A regional
finals, respectively

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE No Leron 'L.J.'
Thomas, no Kentavious McCoy,
no problem.
Enter Alanda Shaw, who led
Glades Central to a 25-6 victory
over Miami-Belen Jesuit last Fri-
day night.
Shaw, who came into this
season as the Raiders third-string
quarterback, was 9-of-21 passing
for 121 yards with three touch-
downs and three interceptions.
The sophomore, who took
over at .the helm for Thomas (col-
larbone injury), was aided by a
balanced offensive attack and the
offensive line, arguably among
)the very best in the state this sea-
son.
.In the opening quarter of the
Class 3A-4 regional quarterfinal
game, Shaw connected with fel-
low sophomore wideout Kevin
Benjamin (three catches, 50
yards) with an 11-yard touch-
down pass.
Later in the first half, the soph-
omore quarterback threw anoth-
er touchdown pass, a 6-yarder to
senior wideout Rantavious Woo-
ten (two catches, 18 yards).
Wooten, the four-star receiver,
according to Rivals.com, compet-
ed in this game just six days after
suffering from back spasms in the
Nov. 15 Muck Bowl game against
Pahokee.


Wooten's score put Glades
Central up 19-0 going into half-
time.
After Belen Jesuit cut the Raid-
ers lead to 19-6 in the third frame,
Shaw put the game away with
a 17-yard touchdown strike to
senior tight end/wideout James
West (two receptions, 32 yards).
Though the rushing attack
wasn't especially effective the
Raiders were limited to 69 rush-
ing yards on 23 carries senior
tailback Antonio McCloude (12
carries, 65 yards) did register a
touchdown in the game.
.McCloude's score came on a
18-yard run to open the contest.
In terms of total yardage, Bel-
en Jesuit held its own against the
Raiders defense as it mustered
184 total yards, only six less than
Glades Central (190).
But the Raiders defense, who
limited the Wolverines to only six
total first downs, came through
yet again when it mattered most.
The defensive back duo of
Cartavious Baldwin (2 INTs) and
Gregory Dent (1 INT) proved to
be the difference in the game for
Glades Central.
The Raiders (11-0) will travel
to Opa Locka tomorrow night to
face off against Miami-Monsignor
Pace in the Class 3A-4 regional
semifinal game.
Monsignor Pace defeated Fort
Lauderdale-Cardinal Gibbons, 35-
21, in their Class 3A playoff open-
er last week.
The Glades Central-Monsignor

year's regional semifinals, which

with a 27-24 win to take the Class
3A-4 regional title.

Pahokee 22, Park-
way Academy 8:
In the Blue Devils Class 2B
playoff opener, it was Vincent
Smith who propelled them to vic-
tory.
The Michigan-bound run-
ning back (19 carries, 163 yards)
scored two of Pahokee's three
touchdowns in the game, includ-
ing an 80-yard run in the second
quarter.
Smith's score, followed by
a Nu'Keese Richardson 2-point
conversion run, put Pahokee up
15-8 going into halftime in their
home game.
No team scored again until
the fourth quarter, when Smith
punched in a touchdown run of
16 yards to conclude the game's
scoring.
Richardson, who connected
on a 5-yard touchdown pass to
Dexter Holmes, completed just
two passes on 12 attempts for 16
yards in this contest.
That being said, the Florida
commit did finish with 102 total
yards in the game (seven carries,
86 yards).

That score put Glades Day up
7-6 going into halftime.
Once again, Taylor was the
difference-maker for the Gators,
scoring all of his touchdowns in
the second half to put the game
away.
Though Glades Day's rush-
ing offense was great (237 total
rush yards), the run defense was
picked apart yet again.
Indian Rocks had its way on
Glades Day's run defense, rush-
ing for 258 yards on 39 carries
with three touchdowns.
Glades Day (6-5) earned the
right to host Class 1A powerhouse
Fort Meade in tomorrow night's
Class 1A-3 regional champion-
ship game.
It's a rematch of the Gators 23-
21 Class 1A-3 finals victory over
the Miners, which was played in
Fort Meade last year.
Glades Day overcame Fort
Meade's potent rushing attack in


the classic battle, highlighted by
Schlecter's game-winning field
goal with less than two minutes
left in the game.
Cody Davis's game-ending in-
terception sealed the win for the
Gators, which allowed more than
200 rushing yards to Fort Meade
last year.
Fort Meade, which defeated
Evangelical Christian 34-7 in their
Class 1A playoff opener last week,
is looking to end a two-game los-
ing streak to Glades Day.
Glades Day will need to tighten
up the holes in its run defense if
they expect to advance to their
third straight Class 1A state semi-
final game next week.
The winner of this game will
face either Miami-Dade Christian
or Class 1A defending champion
American Heritage-Delray Beach
in the state semifinals.

The Community United Methodist Church of Belle Glade
donated the proceeds from it's Pumpkin Patch to the
Lighthouse Cafe. The pumpkin patch was an interactive
experience for the local children who visited. Storytelling,
face painting, fun and games helped to raise money for
the local food bank. Mrs. Jane Thompson coordinator of
the patch awarded Mr. Paul Allen, Director of the Light-
house Cafe, a check for $3,782.27. Mrs. Thompson would
like to thank everyone who volunteered to help and all the
wonderful support that came from the area.

Low-income housing development to be demolished


In July 1947, a few brave young
men of Pahokee saw a great need
and initiated a mission to con,
struct decent, safe and sanitary
housing for "persons of low in-
come, at rentals they can afford."
On April 25, 1956, Pahokee Hous-
ing Authority's Board of Directors,
Leonard Dobrow, Albert Fremd,
Robert Apelgren, Roy Vandegrift,
Jr., and J.F. Waddell, approved a
Development Program for Low-
Rent Housing Projects. Their
plans were submitted to and ap-
proved by the Public Housing
Administration and the Home Fi-
nance Agency.
The dream of these Pioneers
came to fruition two years lat-
er when in 1958, L.L. Stuckey
Homes was constructed. Subse-
quently, they developed McClure
Village (1959); Padgett Island


Homes (1970); and Fremd Village
(1971), a total of 515 Low-Rent
Public Housing Units. This was
accomplished in cooperation
with the City of Pahokee. Mr. L.L.
Stuckey served as a member of
PHA's Board, and Pioneer Leon-
ard Dobrow, was reappointed to
the Board a couple of years ago.
In 2008, the Pahokee Housing
Authority is committed to carry-
ing on the dream of these great
pioneers and will expand it a bit
further. We will afford the op-
portunity to low-income families
to become homeowners. It is, in
part, for this reason that PHA will
demolish the 50 year old, 40-Unit,
L.L Stuckey site. The driving force
behind the demolition, however,
is the extent of damage caused by
Hurricane Wilma. While tragic,
Wilma paved the way for much


progress. PHA can now move
forward with its dream to create
a new Affordable Housing Pro-
gram at the Stuckey site. This pro-
gram will give priority to Section
8 Voucher holders and residents
of Public Housing Authority, who
wish to purchase a home. This
will be accomplished through al-
liances and partnerships.
Once the Affordable Housing
Program commences, it will im-
prove the economics and appear-
ance of our community and will
create new jobs. It was January
2006 that PHA submitted its appli-
cation to U.S. Department of HUD
to demolish L.L. Stuckey Homes.
The application was very exten-
sive and the approval process
quite lengthy. However, the con-
tractors have now completed as-
bestos abatement and are in the


process of demolishing the units.
We truly owe it to our Pio-
neers and to the U.S. Department
of HUD to say "thanks" for all of
their hard work. We believe these
Pioneers would be proud of our
great undertaking. We thank Pa-
hokee's former Mayor, J.P. Sasser,
who was very instrumental in get-
ting PHA's Demolition application
approved.
We also thank the entire Citi-
zenry of Pahokee for your pa-
tience-the Hurricane-damaged
buildings were truly an eyesore to
the community. As for me (Julia
Hale, PHA Executive Director), I
will always treasure one address
at L.L. Stuckey Homes (222 S.E.
4th Court). For this is where I lived
with my mother and was happily
married (in the living room) 36
years ago.

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 "0" Hike
around Lake Okeechobee.
The Hike will begin in 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.

Art News
Every year the Dolly Hand
Cultural Arts Center (DHCAC)
provides Christmas trees for lo-
cal businesses and schools to
decorate. Once again, the Gove
Elementary Art Club under the
direction of Mrs. J. Schmidt, Art
Teacher, eagerly created hand-
made ornaments for the tree rep-
resenting our school. The orna-
ments were made out of colorful
yarn pom-poms and string San-
tas. The Festival of the Trees is on
display in the lobby of the DHCAC
through the month of December.
Patrons of the theater may bid on
the trees with the proceeds going
to support the art programs spon-
sored by the center. Our student
artists/volunteers are proud sup-
porters of the cultural arts in our

A Note from the School
Nurse
School District policy states
that absolutely NO medicine can
be brought to school by a student
in any form or at any time. These
include prescription and over-the-
counter medicines such as cough
drops, Tylenol, cold pills, Anbesol,
antibiotic cream, etc. They are all
considered DRUGS ON CAMPUS
by the school police. The only ex-
ception is asthma inhalers; how-
ever, the school nurse must have
a written order from the doctor,
renewed yearly, allowing the stu-
dent to carry it. Medicines allowed
on campus must have written or-
ders from doctor and parent and
are securely locked in a medicine
cabinet located in the school
clinic. Only adults (parents/guard-
ians) are allowed to bring medi-
cine to school; they must have
the appropriate orders and in a
prescription-labeled bottle. The
nurse recommends that for con-
venience, parents should ask the
pharmacy to split the prescription
into two bottles-one for school
and one for home. Be reminded
that medicines can not be sent
back and forth with the students.

Group offers $588 million for U.S. Sugar


Investment group
takes deal directly to
shareholders

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
INI Florida
CLEWISTON -- U.S. Sugar ex-
isting 10 years from now.
The continuation of 1,700
jobs.
A sale to the state of Florida.
A lawsuit leveled at the top ex-
ecutives of the sugar giant.
The Mott family or the Law-
rence family?
The only certainty in Clewiston
nowadays is the uncertainty.
In the wake of an announce-
ment by U.S. Sugar that it would
sell much of its land for $1.34 bil-
lion to the South Florida Water
Management District for the pur-
poses of rehabilitating the Ever-
glades, the company has a new
offer to contend with.
Officials are approaching the
offer sensitively, given the fact that
its previous, interactions with the
group ended in a lawsuit.
In a letter to the company,
Gaylon M. Lawrence Jr. -- who
along with his father Gaylon Sr.
operates the Lawrence Group, a
Nashville-based investment group
-- calls on individual stockholders
to take a good, hard look at the
figures on the table.
At $300 per share, the group
reasons that the offer represents a
better tangible value than the deal
put forth by the state of Florida to
buy out the sugar company.
Taken at face value, the $365-


INI/Ashley Smith
A Nashville-based investment group is hoping that U.S. Sugar stockholders will agree to sell
their outstanding shares at $300 per share. The group has made previous bids to buy out the
sugar giant, in 2005 and 2007, at a price of $365 per share.


per-share deal by the state car-
ries too many shifting variables
to stockholders, Mr. Lawrence
Jr. writes. The amount of tax that
would be required to be paid by
the company, and its existing debt


obligations, makes the deal with
the state a less attractive option,
the group said.
"Our offer would provide
shareholders with $300 in cash
per share immediately," said Mr.


Lawrence Jr. "Our offer is a win
for everyone: the employees,
the local communities, the envi-
ronment, the taxpayers, and par-
ticularly your shareholders. What
possible reason could you have to


not accept our offer?"
U.S. Sugar issued a statement
on Thursday in response. The
company requested that the Law-
rence Group send a proposal for
review:
"Our directors are continuing
to review and evaluate the alter-
natives available to the Company
and its stockholders, and look
forward to an orderly, measured,
and considered process that will
result in a transaction that is in the
best interests of the company and
its stockholders."
Todd Templin, a spokesman
for the Lawrence Group, said that
a formal proposal is being pre-
pared.
The Lawrence Group is no
stranger to U.S. Sugar.
The group is at the center of
a lawsuit against the sugar com-
pany. After making buyout offers
in 2005 and then later in 2007
for $293 a share, the Lawrence
Group was rebuffed, the lawsuit
claims, without the knowledge of
the employee stockholders.
The 'employee stockholders
filed the complaint.
The suit alleges that these
stockholders were in the dark
about the deal and as a result were
kept from selling their shares at a
.50 percent premium -- at a time
when the company was buying
back individual shares at approxi-
mately $100 less a share.
The suit claims that U.S. Sug-
ar's CEO was wired $10 million
in hush money after initially be-
ing receptive to the plan, because
the Mott family, which maintains
control of the company through a


foundation, wished to keep con-
trol of the company..
Perhaps recalling that event,
the Lawrence Group has taken its
offer directly to stockholders in a
bid for transparency.
Meanwhile, the deal already
has local backers.
Melanie McGahee; an attorney
in Hendry County, calls the Law-
rence offer the rhost reasoned yet
for the purchase of the company.
"It looks to me like the Law-
rence deal is a no-brainer," said
Ms. McGahee, who believes that
agriculture will continue if the
group is successful in its bid.
She remains hopeful that the
Lawrence Group would work
with the state to supply it with
the land it needs to rehabilitate
the Everglades while operating
the mill and harvesting sugar well
into the future.
"This is a win-win," she said.
She admits to being "trauma-
tized" at hearing that U.S. Sugar
had agreed to sell to the state ear-
lier this year.
"My opinion is that the govern-
ment owning any assets is a bad
thing," she said. "The state is like.
a drug addict and the land is like
cocaine. Once they take it, they're
never gonna give it back."

part of his life in Clewiston, and
moved to Tallahassee with his fami-

unable to attend due to family obli-
gations and military service. After an
honorable discharge from the U.S.

of Johnie and Jane and they pur-
chased Talquin Grocery West of Tal-

Jackson's Talquin Grocery. After 30
years in business they retired in 1994
to spend more time with their
granddaughters.
Johnie was actively dedicated to

serving 11 years as a Deacon, includ-
ing Deacon Chairman, Construction
Committee Member, and Board of
Deacons. He was also an active
member of the Fort Braden Commu-

His love for Seminole Athletics was
surpassed only by his love for his
family and granddaughters. Johnie
will be remembered as a dear friend
to many and a Godly example to all,
Your honesty and integrity will be
missed.
Johnie was preceded in death by
his adoptive parents, Oscar and Ola

The story of the Mayaimis Indian Nation


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The small river, fed by the pris-
tine waters of the lake, flowed
swiftly, cutting a winding, narrow
swath through the emerald, cus-
tard apple forest.
The narrow, watery path
emerged from the forest and me-
andered slowly through Carolina
willows, before starting its final
journey across the River of Grass.
A series of dirt mounds inter-
rupted the river's approach to the
Everglades.
The probing river stalled un-
decidedly before it encircled the
earthen intruders and continued
its journey south into the Ever-
glades.
Shelters were nestled on top
of square mounds of sand and
muck and loomed above the river
and surrounding Everglades.
Dirt causeways coursed
through the eddying river waters,
interlinking all the mounds.
Mayaimis Indians moved lei-
surely along the causeways to
different mounds as they vis-
ited friends and performed daily
tasks.
This short story gives us a brief
glimpse into the lives of the Mayai-
mis Indians living along the rivers
and creeks that flowed in and out
of Lake Okeechobee.
Who were the Mayaimis Indi-
ans and how did Lake Okeecho-
bee and the surrounding areas


look when the Mayaimis Indians
lived on its shore?
It is time to take "A Walk in The
Past" and get the latest gossip on
our Mayaimis neighbors.
The Mayaimis Indian Na-
tion was part of the "Belle Glade
Culture,"(a term used to describe
the Indian culture around Lake
Okeechobee) and maybe the
Kissimmee River valley from ap-
proximately 1,000 BC to 1,700 or
1,800 AD.
It was a large territory that
included all or inland parts of;
Glades, Hendry, Palm Beach, and
Martin counties around the lake.
Other areas to the north in-
cluded Okeechobee, Highlands,
Osceola, and Polk counties.
Our old friend, Escanlante Fon-
tanedo, a Spanish Castaway and
slave of the Calusa Indians, tells
us some interesting tidbits about
our long forgotten neighbors, the
Miayami Indians; "Situated on the
bank of a river which extends into
the county the distance of fifth-
teen leagues, and issues from an-
other lake of fresh water, which is
said by some Indians who have
traversed it more than I, to be an
arm of Lake Mayaimi. On this
lake, which lies in the midst of the
country, are many towns, of thirty
or forty inhibitants each; and as
many more places there are in
which people are not so numer-
ous."
The river that Fontanedo was
referring to is the Miami River.


Hunting accident



claims teenager


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
officers are investigating what
appears to be a hunting accident,
which claimed the life of a Bro-
ward County teenager. Seth D.
Edge, 15, of West Park, died from
a single gunshot wound to the
head shortly before 7 a.m. Satur-
day.
The victim was duck hunt-
ing with his father and brothers
on Lake Okeechobee in Glades
County when his 13-year-old
brother attempted to set his gun
down. Witnesses said the gun fell
and discharged, fatally injuring
Seth, who was pronounced dead
at the scene. No charges have
been filed."
The Glades County Sheriff's
Office was among the first re-
sponders and assisted in the in-
vestigation.


In Florida, children 15 years
and younger may hunt without
a hunting license, as long as they
are supervised by an adult. Chil-
dren under 16 may hunt with a
gun lawfully but must be under
adult supervision at all times.
The FWC regularly schedules
hunting safety classes in all Flor-
ida counties.
"We encourage all hunt-
ers, especially children to take
the course," said FWC regional
hunter safety administrator Lynne
Hawk. "The course is free and
satisfies the hunter education re-
quirements of all other states and
Canadian provinces that require
hunter safety certification."
Everyone born on or after
June 1, 1975, must pass an ap-
proved hunter safety course to
be eligible to purchase a Florida
hunting license.


The Eastern Coastal Ridge and
the Immokalee Ridge formed 'a
basin that once directed part of
the Lake Okeechobee sheet flow
through the Everglades into the
Miami River that once flowed nat-
urally out to Key Biscayne.
It should be noted that the City
of Miami and the Miami River
were named after the Mayaimis
Indians and not the Miamis Indi-
ans living in Ohio.
Lake Mayaimis means Big Wa-
ter.
The name Mayaimis was also
used to describe the Indians living
on Big Water, a lake we know to-
day as Lake Okeechobee.
The Mayaimis Indian towns
were located along the lake's
shoreline and waterways that
flowed in and out of the lake.
Yesterday's Lake Okeecho-
bee had a much wider shoreline,
larger flood zone and many wa-
terways that have since been de-
stroyed.
Mounds found around Lake
Okeechobee today seem lost and
out of place in a geographical
patchwork of agriculture and ur-
ban development.
Old Timers recorded some
of the old lake boundaries; Peli-
can Lake, a large bay that started
roughly around Beacon Point and
ran northeast toward Canal Point.
The bay split Pahokee from
the mainland, forming Pahokee
into a small peninsula that jutted
out in the lake.


Further south, the lake waters
once extended out to Dead Man's
Curve on Highway 715, where
commercial fishermen once har-
vested catfish in the early 1900s.
The land area north of South
Bay is still called Lake Bottom.
It was once a great bay teem-
ing with ducks and fish.
The lake once extended be-
yond the Clewiston sugar mill
during the wet season.
The geographical change in
the early 1,900s makes it difficult
to envision the old lake boundar-
ies as they were in the days of the
Miayami Indians.
Laurence E. Will, the great
Glades historian, wrote about the
drought on Lake Okeechobee in
the early 1900s.
He said the settlers walked
across the southern sections of
the lake that were once under
water and discovered hundreds
of Indian skeletons.
It was a mystery to Lawerance
Will, who speculated that a great.
battle could have been fought,
resulting in the death of so many
Indians.
Geologist and Anthropologist
may have a better answer.
Some believe that the lake's
south shore could have ended
where Rocky Reef lies today.
Rocky Reef is a limestone ridge
running east and west across the
lake.
It protrudes several feet above
the water when the lake is low


and extends from Pahokee to
Lakeport.
Most of the islands in Lake
Okeechobee are south of Rocky
Reef, indicating that all land south
of Rocky Reef may have been
higher once upon a time.
Archeologist have found
enough artifacts on the lakes bot-
tom to support the fact that Indi-
ans once lived high and dry in ar-
eas that are now inundated with
lake water.
Hurricanes and flooding were
probably the key factors that ex-
tended the lake's shoreline south
of Rocky Reef.
Hurricanes no doubt played a
role in the destruction of the buri-
al mounds.
There will be more Tall Tales
about the Mayaimis Indian towns
and their locations in next week's
edition of "A Walk in The Past."
I hope you enjoyed this story.

artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale
of a Tale" that you would like to

research at the Belle Glade li-
brary, about 20 children gathered
around Ms. McBride, staring her
straight in the face.
Leaving a room, the kids
swarmed the woman, looking at
her nose, neck, face and arms.
"One kid asked me about a
spot on my nose," Ms. McBride
rememembered.
"After that, they all made fun
of me."
As a result of her condition,
Ms. McBride suffers from lesions
on her skin.
In yet another discouraging in-
stance, while ordering lunch one
afternoon at a restaurant, a group
of four women looked at her un-
comfortably.
Looking at her lesions, all of
them stared at her and walked


away, as if Ms. McBride didn't be-
long there.
That particular sequence
made for a depressing moment,
which still, at times, eats away at
her from the inside.
"I felt like running away and
crawling under a rock," Ms.
McBride said, on the verge of
breaking out in tears.
"I was so embarrassed that I
wanted to die right then."
Interestingly, the inside heal-
ing began just two weeks ago,
when Ms. McBride made a stop
to Glades General Hospital.
Upon entering the hospital,
the woman ran into Teri Calsetta,
an employee of the hospital.
It was Tuesday, Nov. 4, the day
of the presidential election.
Ms. McBride vividly remem-,
bered Nurse Calsetta wearing an
'I Voted' pin.
What she didn't know, how-
ever, was that the pin would be
symbolic to the point it brought a


special change for the better.
Bleeding on the inside, crying
on the out, Ms. McBride met with
the nurse for about one hour that
day.
In short, what Ms. Calsetta
actually did was vote for change -
that is, to make Ms. McBride's life
happier and give her a renewed
sense of hope.
Suffering from Multiple Sclero-
sis herself, Ms. Calsetta was able
to help Ms. McBride like no one
really has before her.
"That was the first time I ever
met her," Ms. Calsetta said.
"I've been in that position be-
fore and I could relate to what
she's going through."
Ms. Calsetta, who obtained
the disease in the 1970, was re-di-
agnosed with MS about 10 years
ago.
Multiple sclerosis is described
as an autoimmune disease in
which the body attacks itself.
With the disease, the body, at


any given time, can attack the pro-
tective sheats around the nerves,
preventing them from functioning
properly.
Repercussions of the disease
can include vision disturbances,
loss of balance and numbness in.
the body.
At times, as a result of her con-
dition, Ms. Calsetta can't drive or
even walk.
Late last year, for a period of
nine weeks, the Ohio native was
forced out of work due to the se-
verity of the symptoms.
Throughout that time period,
she suffered a case of exacerba-
tion, signifying the accelerated
activity of the disease.
"That's the problem with
these diseases, you don't know'
how you get it, there's no cure,"
Ms. Calsetta said.
"You just have to live with it."
Upon learning about each oth-
er's conditions, both of them held
hands firmly.


Both women describe that
fateful moment as the 'Hour of
Power.'
Not only did a special bond
form between them, but they de-
cided to start a support group to
involve others.
For Ms. McBride, the meeting
proved to be what she calls 'a di-
vine intervention.'
She had previously spoken
with a host of doctors and organi-
zations for assistance, to no avail.
But now, Ms. McBride aims to
look forward as she begins her
quest to help those who suffer
from similar conditions.
"Finally, something is going to
happen in the Glades for people
like us," Ms. McBride said.
"I want to show people that
we're not alone," she continued.
"Individuals need to know out
there that this is real and discrimi-
nation needs to stop."
Glades General Hospital plans
to begin the support group ses-

In fact, according to Captain
Silva, Rev. Wallace prefers to be
'other people-minded and not
self-centered.'
That could be why, perhaps,
the memorial ceremony is set up
to be one that all could take part
in.
"Life is brief and it's important
for us not to take it for granted,"
the captain said.
"We need to try to make a dif-
ference in the lives of others be-
cause when it's all said and done,
that's what it's all about."
Though Captain Silva never re-
ally got a chance to know the fall-


en deputies on a personal level,
the tragedy touched him so much
that he felt honored to take part in
giving back to the two families.
The captain, scheduled to be
one of the program's speakers,
played an integral role in raising
funds earlier this year for the fam-
ilies to fly up to Tallahassee and
Washington, D.C. to be honored.
The state and federal ceremo-
nies, which paid tribute to the
fallen heroes, took place in May.
On his final day as a District
Five Commander Captain Silva
now serves as the newly formed
Lake Worth-District 14 com-
mander -
he made sure that signs were
posted in honor of the slain depu-
ties.
As previously reported, Cap-


tain Silva's last day at District Five
may have.been on Friday, Sept.
12, but it was one that those close
to him won't soon forget.
He officiated a dedication to
the two families on that clear and
crisp morning.
The memorization ceremony,
which lasted for approximately
15 minutes, took place at the site
of where the two deputies lost
their lives.
Representatives from DBI, an
affiliate of the Fla. Department of
Transportation, and PBSO Lieu-
tenant Christopher Keane, helped
spearhead efforts to construct
posts in honor of the fallen he-
roes.
Rev. Wallace was the honoree
at the tribute.
"I thank you so much," Ms.


Wallace said to Captain Silva. "I
got pure love for you, nothing will
change that."
Captain Silva instructed all of
the deputies to make sure that the
posts are well-kept at all times.
He even revealed that it's pos-
sible a small garden will be put
in place to beautify the posts, lo-
cated on the southbound side of
State Road 715, less than a mile
south of Pahokee.
"On behalf of the Wallace and
Manuel families, I know they're
appreciative," Captain Silva said
during the dedication ceremony.
"Let this be one that can serve
as an inspiration," the captain
continued.
"Deputies, as you drive by, if
you see anything happen to these
signs, remove them as soon as


possible, we'll contact DBI and
have them replaced."
For all what has been done,
Captain Silva feels that it could
never really be enough, since 'all
she {Rev. Wallace} does is try to
focus on what she could do to
make somebody else's life bet-
ter.'
"She's truly, truly special, you
want to do whatever you can to
make her happy," Captain Silva
said.
"If I could, in some way, do
something to in some small way
to contribute to her well-being,
it's just appropriate."
There will be a host of others
speaking on behalf of Rev. Wal-
lace and the two families, includ-
ing Pastor Robert Reese, Chaplain
Jose Rendon, Sergeant Wiley


Battle, Captain Simon Barnes IV
and the mayors of Pahokee, Belle
Glade and South Bay.
Scheduled to perform at the
tribute are the Tri-City Mass Choir
and the Street Beat Inc. dance
team.
Also appearing will be the
PBSO Explorers, Honor Guard
and-Mounted Unit, Explorer Terra
Sanford, G. A. N. G. and Joshua
Brown.
"Rev. Wallace is somebody we
could strive to be like," Captain
Silva said.
"It makes it so easy to try to
give something back to her."

Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners meeting Wreck


BCC Briefs for
November 18, 2008

At the November 18, 2008
Board of County Commissioners
meeting, the board took the fol-
lowing action:
*Reorganization newly
elected Commissioner Shelley
Vana and reelected Commission-
ers Karen Marcus, Burt Aaronson
and Addie Greene took the oath
+ of office. The board voted to re-
duce the term for the chair and
vice chair from two years to one
year, elected Jeff Koons chairman
and Burt Aaronson vice chair-
man, and recognized outgoing
Commissioner Bob Kanjian for
his 15 months of service.
*Water Utilities authorized


staff to issue up to $90 million in
water and sewer revenue bonds
to fund construction of a recycled
water facility for Florida Power
and Light's new West County
Energy Center plant near 20-Mile
Bend. FPL is required to repay the
entire cost of the bonds with no
cost to taxpayers.
*Roads approved on,pre-
liminary reading and advertised
for public hearing on December 2
amendments to the county's five-
year road program. The board
tentatively agreed to free up $28
million for Palm Tran by delaying
seven proposed road projects and
removing eight others from the
five-year plan.
*Housing and Community
Development approved an ap-


plication to the U.S. Department
of Housing Urban Development
(HUD) under its Neighborhood
Stabilization Program (NSP). The
NSP grant is a special community
block grant allocation created
to address the problem of aban-
doned and foreclosed properties
and to provide housing opportuni-
ties for very-low income persons
or families. Palm Beach County
has been allocated $27.7 million
in federal CDBG program funds,
which require no local match.
*Fire Codes adopted the
updated Florida Fire Prevention
Code, effective Dec. 31, 2008. Lo-
cal amendments include a revised
fee schedule, increasing fees for
plan review and inspection due
to the increased cost of providing


those services.
*Small Business Assis-
tance adopted a fee schedule
for processing certification, modi-
fication of certification, and recer-
tification applications for the Of-
fice of Small Business Assistance;
approved the SBA's 2003 through
2008 annual reports.
*Advisory Boards ap-
pointed Charles McCrosson to
replace Robert Gottlieb as the
Seat 9 municipal representative
on the Green Task Force on En-
vironmental Sustainability and
Conservation; appointed Edwin
Wechsler to replace Seymour Lu-
betkin on the Water Utilities Advi-
sory Board.

Mr. Vargason tried to turn left on
U.S. 27, going southbound, Ms.
Small's vehicle reportedly col-
lided with his freight truck.
It must be noted that the phan-
tom truck was not involved in the
accident.
The vehicle; driven by the Tam-
pa resident, subsequently pushed
the freight truck across the medi-
an and southbound lanes of.U.S.
prior to coming to a final stop,
FHP officials revealed.
The freight truck, driven by the
Oxford, Pa. resident, reportedly
came to rest across both south-
bound lanes on U.S. 27.
The other vehicle, which had
two other female passengers,


stopped on a grass shoulder near
the highway, officials said.
Ms. Small, along with Mary
Elizabeth Fields, 67, of Braden-
ton, were pronounced dead at
the scene of the crash.
Amazingly, Mary Joyce Small,
52, of Pahokee, lived through the
fatal crash, which took the lives of
her two friends.
The Pahokee resident was
transported to Delray Medical
Center for observation, where it
was revealed that she suffered no
injuries.
It was also revealed that the
freight truck driver suffered no
-known injuries as a result of the
collision.
The fatal crash, which is cur-
rently under investigation, report-
edly occurred at about 7:35 p.m.

This Thanksgiving, don't be a turkey


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I've been told that the com-
mercially grown turkey is one of
nature's less intelligent creatures.
In the article I read, the do-
mesticated turkey was described
as being "as brainless as a base-
ball."
Even drinking can put a strain
on turkey intelligence. If a turkey
is outdoors, looking up at the
sky when it starts to rain, it can
drown.
They're often not smart enough
to close their mouths in the rain.
Being called a turkey takes on a
whole new connotation!
But at least the turkey has an
excuse for being "bird-brained."
It has a bird's brain!
There is less excuse for human
beings.
Take the nine lepers Luke
writes about in Luke 17.
Jesus had given them a tre-
mendous gift.


Jesus had healed them from a
disgusting, painful, and unsightly
skin disease.
Even more, Jesus had made it
possible for them to re-enter so-
ciety and reunite with their fami-
lies.
Ten lepers were healed. But
only one leper, and a Samari-
tan at that, came back and said,
"Thanks."
What turkeys! Ten received
God's blessing, but only one
stopped to say thanks.
What about us?
Thanksgiving Day is here. In
which group will you be found?
Amongst the nine who forgot
or with the one who came back
to thank God?
No one wants to be a turkey. If
we want to avoid being "turkeys"
this Thanksgiving, the behavior
of that tenth leper might prove
instructive.
A first step in thanks-giving is
perceiving, seeing the ways we've
been blessed.


God has given different crea-
tures different ways of seeing.
I read that a hawk, perched on
top of the Empire State building,
could locate a dime on the side-
walk below.
I don't know why a hawk
would care about a dime located
on the sidewalk below the Empire
State Building, but if a dime were
there, the hawk could spot it.
A bee has a different kind of
vision. Its eyes have 15,000 facets
that enable it to see the sun as a
single dot and to navigate long
distances with the sun as a refer-
ence.
A kingfisher has two kinds of
vision: one for spotting fish as it
flies overhead and another for
seeing fish underwater.
There are different ways of
seeing, and we may need to see
things in different ways if we are
to experience the full measure of
our blessings.
Can we thank God this Thanks-
giving not only for the good things


that happened, but also for the
bad things that didn't happen?
The problems and disasters
we worried about which did not
come about?
Can we look in a different way
and see some sort of blessing
even in the problems that we do
face?
George Matheson, a Scot-
tish preacher, once shared, "I've
thanked God a thousand times for
my 'roses.' Now I've got to learn
to thank God for my 'thorns.' "
Matheson happened to be
blind which is a pretty signifi-
cant "thorn."
Maybe, if we think about it a
bit, we, too, can find different
ways of seeing our blessings.
And we are not meant to keep
all of these blessings to ourselves.
"Thanks," is only half of the word
"Thanksgiving."
"Giving" is the other half.
We are all very fortunate to
have something to give.
In the West Virginia hills they


Whose shall those things be?


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
We are tempted to think that
the things we have toiled for and
given our energies to are ours!
We are only stewards of what
we possess and if we are not
careful we will be possessed by
our possessions!
We must be sure we possess
our possessions (Obadiah 17).
One way to make sure our
possessions do not possess us
is to remember "the earth is the
Lord's and the fullness thereof" (I
Cor. 10:26).
Scriptural giving is one way
of possessing our possessions
instead of being possessed by
them.
Often I've heard "do your giv-
ing while your living and you'll
know where it's going!"
Let's look at some rewards of
giving:
Giving to a cause greater
than we are extends our work.


Giving increases our sense of
involvement.
Giving is an opportunity to
participate in a good work.
Giving fills a need of tran-
scending our own realm.
Giving increases our gener-
osity.
Giving'brings its own reward
of good measure, pressed down;
and overflowing into our bosoms.
(Lk. 6:38)
A generous attitude makes
for a happy spirit (2 Cor. 9:7).
The question, "Then whose
shall those things be" (Luke
12:20) was asked relative to pos-
sessions left at death.
In a very real sense we are re-
sponsible as to who will then re-
ceive our goods.
Solomon wrote of leaving the
fruit of our labor to others who
may or may not be wise in the use
of it (Eccl. 2:18-10).
The Psalmist said "man heaps
up and knows not who will gath-
er" (Psalm 39:6).
An unappreciative or unwise


heir may carelessly squander
wealth which may have been ac-
cumulated by hard work, simple
living and self denial.
There are some things we
should consider relative to our
possessions now which will af-
fect them after we are gone:
*Be generous now.
By giving while we live we can
have the joy of seeing the fruits of
our giving.
*Choose your heirs carefully.
Dumping riches into one's lap
may cause him to live foolishly.
We should consider the con-
sequences of the wealth on our
heirs.
*Be a faithful steward.
A steward is one who has the
goods of another entrusted to him
for use for the rightful owner.
A worthy steward makes good
use of his possessions while be
lives.
A good steward also makes
provision for the proper use of his
goods after he is gone.
When death comes we leave


our earthly possessions, all of
them!
We can leave them in such a
way as to be a blessing to man
and the glory of God.
"Moreover it is required in
stewards that a man be found
faithful" (I Cor. 4:2).
It is an appropriate question
"Then whose shall those things
be, which thou hast provided"
(Luke 12:20). Remember, you
can't take it with you (I Timothy
6:7), but you can send it on ahead
(I Timothy 6:17-19).
It is a fact that you can use
your substance during your life
and you may will it to some wor-
thy cause where it will do good
long after you are gone.
Bequest should have a spiri-
tual intent with an eternal value.
"Whose shall these things be", is
up to you!


More than a nice gesture or being polite


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There are many times when
I've been with people after an or-
deal; an operation, the return of
a loved one who was in danger,
the escape from a threatening
situation, the passing through
a hostile territory. The call is to
give thanks. Noah stops to build
an altar (Genesis 8:20) when the
ark escapes the flood waters and
is brought safely back to dry land.
Nehemiah finds the city of Jeru-
salem in ruins and rebuilds, then
gives thanks to God for a restora-
tion (ch 12:40) and worships. In'
spite of the decree of King Darius,
Daniel continues to give thanks
to his God (6:110) even though it
would lead to defiance and finally
the lion's den.


Our Pilgrim forefathers stopped
to worship once the hardships of
a transatlantic voyage was over
and they had arrived at a new and
promised land. All of these stories
did not bring an end to more chal-
lenges or more difficulties; Noah's
descendants would know slavery
and persecution, Nehemian's city
would be again the site of many
battles, our ancestors did not step
into a land of comfort and peace.
Yet at each moment, there came
a time to give thanks even when
things were difficult or problems
remained,
Gratitude toward God for be-
ing with us during dare hours,
not leaving us without hope, not
leaving us comfortless; that's cap-
turing a bigger picture of our lives
and God's place in them.
Human beings are their most
human when they appreciate all


that they have been given and
their recognition of the source of
all of our gifts is at the root of wor-
ship. A great writer has said that
our recognition that "we didn't
get through this all on our own"
or "we didn't create the world
and life without help" is when
we begin to see God at work ahd
when we realize that we have re-
ceived so many and wonderful
blessings.
Worship is our praising God for
what He has done for us and for
all of humanity; and our response
and, wanting to do something in
return. In comparison to what
God has done, it is precious little.
That's all right, though, the Lord
has told us to go ahead and do it.
When He comes to face a dark-
est earthly hour, He stops with His
disciples and gives thanks over the
things they will share and ordains


that we will give thanks ever after
in our worship, fellowship, com-
mon meal offerings. Thanksgiving
is seeing the big picture; realizing
what we have been given, real-
izing what God has done for us,
realizing that we were not alone
during the darkest of hours. It is
the inner cal to say something to
God, no matter how inadequate,
that we are aware of His presence
and His gifts. It is taking time out
to return what it is that we have
to return, not much in compari-
son to what God has done, but
enough because He asks it of
us. In reality, God doesn't ask a
lot, after all, there's not much we
could give when you think about
it. Just being thankful, that's all.
That much I can do; that much I
should do. Come Thanksgiving,
that much I will do!


have a custom of setting an extra
place setting and an extra chair at
the Thanksgiving table.
It's a reminder that there will
always be people in need and
we need to make room in our
hearts and in our giving for peo-
ple in need.
We can make generous giving
a part of our thanks-giving.
Remember, every time we
feed the hungry, give drink to the
thirsty, clothe the naked, visit the
sick or the prisoner, it's the same
thing as doing it for Jesus (Mat-
thew 25:31).
The tenth leper may not have


had much, but in his gratitude he
shared what he had to give.
This Thanksgiving, don't be a
turkey.
In English, the word "think"
and the word "thank" both come
from the same root.
Nine out of ten forgot to think
and forgot to thank God for their
blessings.
But the tenth leper saw his
blessings, gave thanks for his
blessings, and shared his bless-
ings.
So can we.

Lost files? Search your hard drive ,caim:n


By Diane Timmons
My purpose in writing this col-
umn was to try to limit the aggra-
vation seniors can feel when they
are working on their computers.
Because we didn't grow up with
computers, sometimes we are at
a loss to solve a problem that we
know must have a simple solu-
tion. It's so easy to lose a file on
the computer. I've done it and I'm
sure you have too. It especially
seems to happen when saving
a file sent via email or if you are
downloading a file from an inter-
net site.
The great thing about Win-
dows, is that a search function has
been built into the operating sys-
tem. It is simple to use with just a
few tips. To clarify, the search I'm
talking about isn't on the Internet
or Google. You firid it from your
computer desktop.
If you have no idea where
a file is, you probably want to


search your entire hard drive. This
will search all those temp folders
where some email attachments
like to save.
1. Click Start and drag your
mouse to select Search and then
click For Files and Folders. This
brings up a search panel. Again
click All Files and Folders. In the
top box, type the file name or part
of it. It will search for just those
letters in the names of the files. Or
you can use the center box for a
word or phrase in the body of the
file. The third box down shows
where you will be searching. No-
tice you can choose a different
folder.
2. You can also search just
by date. If you know what day
you created the file, you can sim-
ply search by the day's date.
3. Now click Search.
4. The result will appear
to the right in a list. This list can
be quite long. A scroll to the right


may give you some information
that will narrow down the file you
are looking for. Pay special atten-
tion to the "In Folder" column
which tells you where your file
is located. It may show a lot of
nested folders. Sometimes I open
up a My Computer window along
side the search results and make
sure I can find the file before 1
close the search pane.
5. When you locate your
lost file, either in the search re-
sults list or in a folder, double click
to open the file. An hourglass will
appear while your computer lo-
cates the application that created
that file. The file will open.
My Computer provides a sim-
pler view, of the folders on your
computer. Use My Computer if
you want to search for a file in a
specific folder. For example, open
My Computer and look to the
left to open My Documents. My
Documents is the default save lo-


cation for many of your files and
can get quite large with lots of
files. Here is how to search within
a file folder.
After you have opened
the folder within which
you want to search, do
one of the following to
bring up the search panel
discussed above:
-Click the magnifying glass
at the top of the folder.
-Press Ctrl and then the
"e" key to bring up the
search panel.
-Or, click the menu item
View, then Explorer Bar,
and then Search.
The Search function on your
computer can help you find files
and pictures you think you have
lost. Practice it and happy com-
puting!
