Merry Christmas: Santa visits Pahokee


, . . INI/Nina Wills
Santa Claus delighted children with his presence. during the Pahokee Christmas event
last week.



Lighting up the holidays


A 21-foot Christmas
tree serves as city's
attraction

-By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - "It vas abeau-
� tiful Sight," said Pahokee city
commissioner Henry Craw-
ford.
He's referring to the Light
Up Pahokee event, which took
place on Monday, Dec. 8. '
For one thing, as the cop-


missioner remembers on the
blissful night, 'everyone came
together and had a great time.'
A host of floats lined up for
the Christmas parade, which
began at the parking lot of Pa-
hokee High School and ended
near National City Bank, lo-
cated at the corner of South
Lake Avenue and Bacom Point
Road.
The hour-long parade,
which began at 6 p.m., fea-
tured the likes of the OD Ex-
press Marching Band, the Palm
Beach County Fire Rescue and


the City of Pahokee, to name
just a few groups participating
in the function.
According to Larry Wright,
one of the holiday event's orga-
nizers, the city's float featured
Santa Claus and a Christmas
tree, complete with lighting all
around it.
Guess who was Santa Claus
Monday night?
It was none other than lon
Thompson, the former Paho-
kee Blue Devils football coach.
"It was just magnificent," Mr.

K-9 Deputy




not charged


Findings reveal
Deputies Manuel
and Wallace at fault
in Nov. 28, 2007
tragedy

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - The past year
has been difficult for the fami-
lies of Donta Manuel ahd Jona-
than Wallace.
With the final investigation
released to the public on Thurs-
day, Dec. 4, it just got that much
tougher.
The details of the fatalities
and the events leading up to it
were unveiled exactly one year
after the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office (PBSO) held a
vigil ceremony for both of the
fallen heroes at Pahokee High
School.
According to Fla. State Attor-
ney Barry E. Krischer, the invest
tigation proved one tifing: .
!'This was a tragic accident,"
wrote Attorney Krischer in a
memorandum dated Nov. 24.
Though it was proven that.
K-9 Deputy Gregorio Fernqn-
dez tragically struck both men
in the line of duty, the findings
revealed that there was no
A: 1 -2 --


deputy's part. ,
The state attorney's office
said that no charges will be
filed against the K-9 deputy, nor
will the matter be presented to
the grand jury.
"Accordingly, the investiga-
tion will be closed without fur-
ther action by this office," State
Attorney Krischer said.
The incident
State Attorney Krischer
admitted that of the 16 years he
has reviewed critical.incidents
involving law enforcement
officers, 'this file is by far the
most tragic yet.'
"An officer killed by 'friendly
fire' is heart wrenching enough,
but two officers slain simulta-
neously is. almost too much to
bear," the state attorney wrote
in his memo.
Not long after the Nov. 28,
2007 tragedy, manslaughter
charges were placed on 19-
year-old Ernie Kirk Daley Jr.,
who was accused of stealing
a 1990 gold Toyota Camry on
that ended in the fatal pursuit.
The. defendant continued
with the interview, saying that
he saw the collision occur in
the rearview mirror and knew
he ran over the 'spike strips'.

approaches, area farmers are agency that requires you to rush
asking the district to avoid the this matter. There is nothing to
unintentional consequences of be lost and much to be gained
, this deal which may hurt their by including everyone in this dis-
businesses. cussion," Wedgworth wrote.
"The people we represent There has- been no formal

consequence of a lofty environ- Sugar Cooperative's concerns,
mental goal executed by a bad according to Barbara Miedema,
business deal," said George vice president of public affairs &
,Wedgworth, president and:CEO communications..
of Sugar Growers' Cooperative, ', think they (the district) got
in a letter to the district on Dec. the message loud and clear,"
2 asking the governing board re- .said Miedema, referring to the


~c-- --
outpouring of public comments
against the deal at the governing
board's meeting Dec. 2.
Wedgworth and other farm-
ers are supportive of restoring
the Everglades and point to
their active role in preserving
the Everglades Agricultural Area
- 800,000 acres of mucklarids
south of Lake Okeechobee.
"We understand that in or-
der to continue farming in this
ecologically sensitive region we
must be stewards of the land and.
environment," Wedgworth said.
The Everglades Agricultural
Area Protection Division was es-
tablished in-1989 and is a taxing
body that charges agricultural
landowners an annual tax of
$5 an acre to fund research in
environmental issues. In recent
years, the EPD has collaborated
with the SFWMD to improve
the water quality by reducing
phosphorous levels. Since its in-


ception, the EPD has raised $27
million.
Ed Hamilton, chair of the
EPD, said that the EPD has re-
mained neutral concerning the
SFWMD's deal with U.S. Sugar.
"I'm in no way, shape, or
form supporting either."
Mr. Hamilton is also the chief
operating officer of Duda Ranch-
es in Belle Glade which grows al-
most 25,000 acres of sugar cane
annually. Duda Ranches trans-
ports its cane to U.S. Sugar's mill
in Clewiston to be processed.
Due to a conflict of interest, Duda
Ranches has also remained neu-
tral.
He did note that the pending
deal has not interrupted Duda
Ranches' business or transac-
tions with U.S. Sugar.
Hamilton stressed that area
farmers are not arguing U.S.
Sugar's right to sale their land,
but are simply concerned with


the potential consequences of
the deal.
"If the transaction goes
through, it will have an enor-
mous impact on the communi-
ties around the lake, and the ag-
riculture business in the state of
Florida," Hamilton said.
While'Mr: Hamilton admits
that everyone is fearful of the un-
certainty surrounding the deal,
he offers a new perspective on
the fast moving sale agreement.
"In this short window of ex-
ecution, we won't be hanging
in limbo. Maybe that's the big
thing; everyone can go forward
from there. We can both react to
it and plan going forward."
U.S. Sugar's board of direc-
tors approved the contract on
Dec. 8 and is now awaiting the
decision'from the SFWMD which
is expected on Dec. 15.


Boys Basketball Team Preview


Pahokee Blue Devils
aim to show 'unity'
this season

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - Basketball sea-
son has just begun.
With that being said, there's
quite a bit io look forward to,
in what promises to be excit-
ing times for the area's boys
teams.
For one thing, Pahokee
holds the distinction of being
the defending District 14-3A
champions.
The Blue Devils, who lost to
American Heritage-Plantation,
57-49, in the Class 3A regional
first round game, begin the sea-


son as being considered one of
Class 3A's best teams.
According to the Associated
Press High, School preseason
basketball poll, which was re-
cently released, Pahokee was
ranked just outside the top 10
in Class 3A.
Here's a detailed look at all
the Blue Devils' boys basketball
team:
Pahokee Blue Devils
Head Coach: Antonio Wil-
son Sr. (second season)
Last season's final re-
cored: 13-10 (District 14-3A
Champions)
Top players: Sr. SF Ethan
Winfield,, Jr. PF Zachary Allen,
Sr. SG Dexter Holmes, Jr. SG
De'Joshua Johnson, Jr. PG Mer-
ill Noel


Newcomers: Jr. PG Ra-
heem Buxton, Sr. SG Timothy
Baker, Jr. C Scott Taylor
Notations: SG - shooting
guard, PG - point guard, C -
center, SF - small forward, PF -
power forward, Sr. - senior, Jr.
- junior, Soph. - sophomore,'
Fr. - freshman.
For the Blue Devils, last sea-
son was one of a surprising
success.
Heading into their regular
season finale with Glades Cen-
tral, the team stumbled to a
10-9 record, seemingly headed
for an early district tournament
exit.
But something happened at
the point, with the boys finally
starting to discover their iden-
tity and realizing the talent they

Pahokee Blue Devils junior Zachary Allen, who's seen shoot-
ing a free throw in last seasons's 54-52 win over Clewiston,
could emerge as one of the team leaders with his athleticism
and shooting ability.

Pahokee moves on to state championship game

Pahokee moves on to state championship game


Smith scores three
touchdowns in state
semifinal win over
Frostproof

By Naji Toblas
INI Florida
FROSTPROOF - The dynasty
continues in Blue Devil country.
After a 30-0 beatdown of Frost-
proof last Friday night, the Paho-
kee Blue Devils -are headed to
their sixth straight Class 2B state
championship game.
*They'll be playing Ocala-Trinity
Catholic in the title game on Sat-
urday, Dec. 13, 1 p.m. in Orlando
at the Citris Bowl.


Here's how they got there:
Blue Devils senior running
back Vincent Smith led the rush-
ing attack with 24 carries for 184
yards and three touchdowns.
He scored three of Pahokee's
four touchdowns in the game,
showing evidence of how good
the running game has been the
majority of season for them.
Smith score once each in the
game's first three quarters, effec-
tively obliterating any comeback
dreams that the Bulldogs may
have had.
The Michigan-bound athlete,
who now has 1,991 yards and.
28 touchdowns heading into the
state title game, needs only nine
yards to. join Clewiston's Darris


Hughes as the area's only 2,000-
yard rushers for the season.
Interestingly, with just one
game left in his landmark sea-
son, Smith now leads the area
in touchdowns, one more than
Glades Day's eighth grade run-
ning back Kelvin Taylor (27 TDs).
For head coach Blaze Thomp-
son, his formula for success has
done wonders for Pahokee head-
ing into the championship game.
. Establishing the run to open
up the passing game proved to
be a very effective game plan yet
again, as evidenced by another
solid performance by De'Joshua
Johnson.
The junior standout, who re-
placed Nu'Keese Richardson and


Emmanuel Perez at quarterback
in Pahokee's 45-6 win over Uni-
versity two weeks ago, was 9-for-
19 passing with 123 yards and a
touchdown.
After Smith scored his third
and final touchdown in the third
frame, Johnson, the son of of-
fensive coordinator Jonathan
Johnson, heaved an 11-yard
touchdown throw to fellow ju-
nior Dennis Hall (one catch, 11
yards).
On the defensive front, the
Blue Devils allowed just 134 total
yards to Frostproof.
Amazingly, Pahokee's defen-
sive backs allowed just nine pass-
ing yards to the Bulldogs, though
their run defense allowed 125


yards in the game.
Quarterback D.J. Barnes was
just 2-for-12 passing with those
nine yards.
Now, for the final task in Paho-
kee's unforgettable season, they'll
have an opportunity to go 3-1 in
the head-to-head series against a
team that many predict will make
the championship game interest-
ing.
In the 2006 state -title game,
Pahokee defeated Trinity Catholic
25-11, avenging a 37-30 champi-
onship loss a year earlier.
For the Blue Devils to avoid an
upset loss that has plagued many
of the state's top teams in the
playoffs this season, all they need
to do to play to their strengths.


With Johnson at the helm
and either Richardson or Perez
available to lead, there's a good
chance that history will be made
yet again in Pahokee.
How does five Class 2B titles in
six years sound?
It would be nothing short of
amazing, given the trials they had
to endure this season.
If nothing else, this win could
be the most important.in the Blue
Devils storied history.
The victory, could serve as a
capstone in honoring former out-
side linebacker Norman Griffith,
remembered as one of Pahokee's
fallen heroes.

The Mayaimis Indian Nation on Lake Okeechobee


The Chosen Mounds
of the ancient tribe,
living and sand
mounds

By Butch Wilson'
Clewiston Museum
The dark, swollen clouds filled
the sky and began to swing pon-
derously low in a slow, pendulum
motion before releasing their liq-
uid burden.
The clouds ruptured and burst,
sending torrents of water plung-
ing earthward in a grey deluge.
Flooded creeks, rivers and
lakes overflowed, enveloping the
Kissimmee River basin in a vast
sheet of flowing water.
The swirling waters cascaded
into Lake Okeechobee, carrying
a macabre parade of dead ani-
mals, scrubs and trees in its wet
tentacles.
The invasive waters over-
flowed the lake shoreline and
continued racing south like a liv-
ing creature homed to its ultimate
goal, the sea.
Custard apple forest and wil-
lows surrendered to the flowing,
fluid horde, and soon rivers and
creeks emerged from the dense
forest, inundating the surround-
ing landscape with water.
The lake expanded its bound-
aries beyond the old shorelines to
the Everglades, holding the for-
mer dry-lands hostage under its,
watery grip.
Earthen mounds likened to is-


land fortresses remained aloof as
the inland sea sped southward.
This tale relates the impact that
seasonal rains had on the Mayai-
mis Indians.
Their culture and lives were
shaped and molded by the chang-
ing waters on Lake Okeechobee.
Its time t6 take "A Walk in The
Past," and examine some of the
Mayaimis mounds on the south
shores of Lake Okeechobee and
review the Mayaimis cuisine of
yesterday.
This tall tale will start at the
Chosen Mounds, but later edi-
tions will leapfrog around the
lake, as other mound locations
are described.
The Chosen mounds are locat-
ed close to Belle Glade and were
excavated in 1933, by anthropolo-
gists from the Smithsonian Insti-
tute and the state of Florida.
There were two mounds; the
Living mound and Sand mound.
The mounds were built on the
now obliterated Democratic Riv-
er.
The Living mound was built
inside the river fork and is about
100 by 150 yards in size.
It is called a living mound be-
cause the inhabitants lived on the
mound.
The excavation of this mound
revealed some insight into the
lives of the Mayaimis Indians.
There were many conch shells
found inside the mound.
Shells were some of the trade
items that the Ca usa used when
bartering with the Mayaimis.

sea shells served as multiple tools
for the Florida Indian nations.
Some of the items made from
the shells were: mortar pestles,
drinking cups, awls, hoes and
picks.
The hoe or pick were con-
structed by first drilling a hole
in the shell and then inserting a
wooden handle.
The lower, outer perimeter of
the'Whelk shell is called the lip.
The Mayaimis removed it from
the shell and ground the edges
until they were sharp.
The finished piecewas called
a Celt.
Handle was attached to the
Celt, giving it an ax like appear-
ance.
The purpose of the handle
was to provide leverage, which
gave the carver more chopping
power.
Sometimes, the Celt was used
as a scraper without the handle.
The Indians used. the Celt
when constructing dugouts or
other wood projects.
Shark teeth were also found
in the living mound. The teeth
made great cutting tools.
Some were attached to a han-
dle and used as drills by spinning
the handle very fast or by using a
bow drill.
Various species of shark teeth
were used for detail carving.
Figures of birds, animals and
ornamented plaques with geo-
metric designs were found in the
Sand mound.
These detail carvings are the
product of a complex culture that


expressed their daily and religious
lives in art.
The bones of deer, turtles, fish
and birds were found inside the
Living mound..
Most readers probably aren't
surprised by this discovery, since
we still dine on the same critters
today.
However, our ole friend, Fon-
tanedo, leaves us with a mystery
when he writes about the Mayai-
mis cuisine on Lake Okeecho-
bee.
Fontanedo describes the food
that the Mayaimi Indians ate;
"They have bread of roots, which
is their common food the greater
part of the time; and because of
the lake, which rises in some sea-
sons so high that the roots cannot

"Fish is plenty and very good.
There is another root, like the truf-

there are other different roots of

Some anthropologists think
Fontanedo was referring to the
Arrowroot, a palm that the Te-

flour called coontiee."
However, Arrowroot requires

Anglers and Friends,
It is time for the 18th Annual
Toys For- Kids fishing tournament
Sin Clewiston on Lake Okeechobee
ofi Sunday, Dec. 14 from Safelight
to 3 p.m.
Team entry is $50 and two un-
wrapped toys.
This is a very important tour-
nament for everyone to support.
. We have always had a great
turnout for this event and gath-
ered a lot of toys for the kids in
the Clewiston area.
Given the state of economic af-
fairs we are faced with this year,
I know it's tough, but that makes
it even more important for us to
try to participate in this event and
provide a special Christmas for all
the kids.
Bring lots of toys!


from cattail roots, which can be
used to make flour.
One interesting plant that has
not been addressed is the Lotus
Plant that produces the Lotus
pod.
The Lotus root is used in the
'orient to make flour.
I was told by an ole cracker boy
that some Clewiston folks back in
the day ate the seeds found in the
lotus pod.
He said the nuts tasted like
pasticcio nuts.
The Mayaimis bread was so
popular with the Calusa that the
Mayaimis used it as a trade item
and to pay their tribute.
Fontanedo said the root looked
much like a Spanish truffle, which

Testing of trees resistant to disease to begin


Company takes
measures to dealing
with disease in 2009
experiment

Clewiston, FL - As part of its
proactive program to deal with
disease, Southern Gardens Cit-
rus announced its plans to plant
and field test canker and greening
disease-resistant citrus trees in its
groves starting in early 2009.
Huanglongbing or citrus green-
ing disease (HLB) is considered
to be the most serious disease of
citrus anywhere it occurs in the
world.
HLB was first identified and
confirmed in Florida in Septem-
ber 2005.
'Three years later, HLB now


can be found in all Florida coun-
ties were citrus is grown com-
mercially.
Southern Gardens Citrus
(SGC), one of the largest citrus
producers in the state, has three
groves in southwest Florida, all of
which are infected to some extent
with HLB.
As a result, SGC Citrus has
been and continues to be very
proactive in addressing and deal-
ing with this very serious disease.
Rick Kress, president of South-
ern Gardens Citrus, stated that
"since this disease was first de-
tected in the company's groves
in 2005, the immediate decision
was to become as proactive as
possible to learn about the dis-
ease and at the same time, de-
velop methods and procedures to
deal with the disease on a day to
day basis."


Given the current lack of suc-
cessful control programs for this
world-wide disease and a general
lack of basic knowledge of the
pathogen and its insect vector,
SGC has instigated and partici-
pated in a wide variety of research
projects intended to develop en-
vironmentally and scientifically
proven methods to manage and
control the disease.
Southern Gardens. is currently
working with several groups in-
cluding UF/IFAS, USDA, FDACS,
and other universities and inde-
pendent researchers to achieve
this goal.
As a part of this total research
portfolio, SGC is participating in
and sponsoring multiple projects
to develop disease-resistant citrus
trees.
These ongoing projects were
initiated in early 2007.


Based on the initial positive re-
sults from projects with research-
ers from Texas A & M AgriLife
and a private Florida based com-
pany, Integrated Plant Genetics
where disease resistance has
been achieved in the laboratory,
the first generation of potentially
disease-resistant citrus trees aris-
ing from these two projects have
been produced and are ready to
be field tested.
Given initial successful results
in the laboratory, SGC has applied
for and received a permit from the
United States Department of Agri-
culture Biotechnology Regulatory
Services for one of the projects
allowing the field testing of the
plants generated by this research
soon.
It is expected that a second ap-
plication will be made in the near
future to field test the trees from


the second project.
Kress said the first potentially
disease-resistant trees will be
planted in eatly 2009 in small
.plots to determine if the improved
trees are indeed resistant to can-'
ker and greening.
It is anticipated that this initial
trial will one of several that will .,
be implemented in the immedi-
ate and near future by Southern
Gardens Citrus.
"A final solution for eliminat-;
ing this disease could take years
but the upcoming fieldtrial work
and continuation of the research .
projects are a major step in the
right direction," Kress said.

FWC approves Gulf gag and




red grouper rule changes


Recreational anglers

allowed to harvest

more red grouper in

Gulf state waters

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission on
Thursday approved rule amend-
ments for gag grouper in Gulf of
Mexico state waters that are con-
sistent with interim regulations in
Gulf federal waters.
In addition, the FWC approved
a rule amendment to allow Flori-
da recreational anglers to harvest
more red grouper in Gulf state
waters:
A recent stock assessment in-
dicated that Gulf gag grouper are
Undergoing overfishing (excessive
harvesting pressure), and harvest
levels must be reduced.
Interim federal regulations to.
address this situation will be im-
plemented in Gulf waters beyond
nine nautical miles offshore of
Florida in January.


FWC's action will make Flori-
da gag grouper rules in state ja-
ters consistent with the interim
federal regulations.
The new rules establish a two-
fish-per-person recreational daily
bag limit for gag grouper within
the five-grouper aggregate limit in
Gulf state waters,.and prohibit the
recreational harvest of gag grou-
per from Gulf state waters from
Feb. 1 through March 31.
Another new FWC rule in-
creases the recreational daily bag
limit for red grouper in Gulf state
waters from one fish per person
to two.
The FWC is taking this action
now because a recent stock as-
sessment concluded that the Gulf
red grouper stock has recovered
enough to allow an increase in
harvest levels, and it is expected
that the. recreational red grou-
per bag limit in Gulf federal wa-
ters will be increased to two fish
-sometime in 2009.
"The improvement in red
grouper abundance in the Gulf
gives us a chance to 'give back'


some fish to anglers and helps

reduce the overall impacts of the

new gag grouper restrictions,"

said Rodney Barreto, chairman of

the FWC.

These rules will take effect on

Jan. 1.

management is available online

FWC Commissioners receive




update on the Everglades


August rains

produce dangerous

conditions for

wildlife

The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) heard a report from staff
on water and wildlife issues in
the Everglades on Wednesday,
Dec. 3, at its meeting in Key
West.
During the August rains from
Tropical Storm Fay, 20 inches of
water fell throughout the Ever-
glades drainage basin, causing
some dangerous conditions for
wildlife in the Everglades.
The Everglades encompass
approximately one-half of its his-
torical area, which magnifies im-
pacts from heavy rainfall storms,
such as occurred with Fay.
Because drainage patterns
also have been altered, these
conditions can persist for weeks,


creating large areas of relatively
deep water.
This situation generates enor-
mous stress on wildlife.
The FWC has developed high-
and low-water closing criteria for
the Everglades and Francis S.
Taylor, Holey Land and Roten-
berger wildlife management ar-
eas (WMAs).
The presence of humans dur-
ing these times increases stress
levels and mortality for wildlife
through human interaction.
High-water levels concentrate
wildlife in small areas, causing
disease outbreaks, increased
parasites and malnutrition be-
cause of a limited food supply.
During times of low water,
the risk of muck fires increases
and internal combustion engines
can be a hazard.
Chuck Collins, FWC's South
Region director, presented the
criteria for high- and low-water
closure for the Everglades and
Taylor WMAs.
"Our staff collects data on


wildlife through spotlight surveys
throughout the yea to establish
a baseline behavior for normal
to dry conditions," Collins said.
"This data, is crucial to deter-
mine when it is appropriate to
reopen the area."
Commissioner Ronald
Bergeron leads the Commission
on Everglades issues and in Oc-
tober brought togetlliti a team
consisting of the South Florida
Water Management District, the

Miccosukee Tribe, the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers, U.S, Fish and
Wildlife Service, the Department
of Transportation, the Depart-
ment of the Interior and the Flori-
da Department of Environmental
Protection to help devise a plan
to reduce water levels during
emergency high-water events.

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.
For further questions, please con-
tact the school administration or
the school nurse at 561-993-8700.

Renowned scientist
receives two awards
for her 44 years of
research

Dr. Karen Steidinger, of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission's (FWC) Fish
and Wildlife Research Institute
(FWRI), recently brought home
two prestigious awards.
Last month Steidinger ac-
cepted the Yasumoto Lifetime
Achievement Award -in ,Hong
Kong.
In October, she received a
second-place 2008 Gulf Guardian
Award in the Individual category.
The International Society for
the Study of Harmful Algae (IS-
SHA) recognized Steidinger with
the Yasumoto award in recogni-
tion of her long and outstanding
contributions to harmful algal
bloom research and the study of
other micro-organisms.
The Gulf of Mexico Program
presented the Gulf Guardian
Award to honor Steidinger's ac-
complishments through more
than 44 years of red tide re-
search.
Steidinger is so renowned in
her field, her fellow scientists
named the Florida red tide or-
ganism "Karenia brevis" in her
honor.


As a marine biologist, author,
lecturer, teacher and research
leader, Steidinger has generated
a wealth of new information to
help scientists, agencies and the
public understand red tide and its
effects on living creatures in the
Gulf,of Mexico and around the
world. Steidinger also has studied
the worldwide distribution, ad-
aptations and general ecology of
other microalgae: ,
"Karen is an icon in the field
of harmful algal bloom research


ert earns awards


and a true Florida treasure," said
FWRI Director Gil McRae.
"In addition to her world-
renowned scientific accomplish-
ments, she has mentored dozens
of outstanding scientists over the
past four decades, and she has
served as a role model to yoing
people, particularly women, in-
terested in pursuing careers in
science."
Since retiring in 2003, Steiding-
er continues to work as a senior
research scientist with FWRI on
a contract basis through the Uni-
versity of South Florida.
"Throughout my years of
working for the state of Florida, I
was fortunate to work on harmful
algal blooms, focusing on blooms
in Florida waters, because of
their impacts on fisheries, the
environment and public health,"
Steidinger said.
"Without the state's Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute and
the people I worked with, I would
not have been able to accomplish
what I did during those years."
The Gulf of Mexico Pro-
gram initiated the Gulf Guardian
Awards in 2000 to recognize and
honor businesses, community
groups, individuals and agencies
that are taking positive steps to
keep the Gulf healthy, beautiful
and productive.
Underwritten by the U.S. En-
vironmental Protection Agency,


the program is a nbn-regulator
group of federal agencies and
representatives of the business
and agricultural communities,
fishing industry, scientists, envi-
ronmentalists and community
leaders from all five Gulf states.

the Gulf Guardian Awards and

Scientists founded ISSHA in
1997 to meet the need for an in-
ternational program on harmful
algae.
The society promotes and
fosters research and training pro-
grams on harmful algae and co.
sponsors meetings on that topi
at the national, regional and inter-
national levels.

Company releases
statement about the
sale of U.S. Sugar to
the state of Florida

The Lawrence Group ex-
pressed surprise and extreme
disappointment at the announce-
ment that the Board of Directors
of United States Sugar Corpora-
tion had approved the contract to
sell approximately 180,000 acres
of its real estate assets to the
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD).
The, Lawrence Group'made a
formal offer to acquire US. Sugar
for $300 per share in cash on No-
vember 29, 2008 and reaffirmed
its offer on December 4, 2008
when it also delivered a "highly
+ confident" letter from Rabobank
International, a global financial
services leader serving the food
and agribusiness industry.
To date, U.S. Sugar has refused
to engage in discussions with the
Lawrence Group regarding its for-
mal offer of$300 per share, which
clearly provides superior-value to
U.S. Sugar's stockholders than
the land sale to the SFWMD.
In fact, representatives of U.S.
Sugar contacted representatives
of The Lawrence Group late last
week, indicating that U.S. Sugar
would be delivering a confidenti-
ality agreement so that the parties
could promptly commence nego-
tiations-The Lawrence Group
has yet to receive this agreement
or any other information from
U.S. Sugar.
"We believe that the Board of
Directors of U.S. Sugar has clearly
breached its fiduciary duties to
its stockholders in a number of
significant respects," said Gaylon
Lawrence Jr. of The Lawrence
Group. In particular:
� U.S. Sugar has in-
dicated that, notwithstanding its
agreement with the SFWMD, it
may still solicit superior offers;
however, entering into an agree-
ment in connection with any
such superior offer will, under the
terms of the land sale contract,
cost U.S. Sugar and its stockhold-
ers $40 million in value.
This is a cost that could easily
have been avoided had U.S. Sug-
ar negotiated with The Lawrence
Group before entering into the
agreement with the SFWMD.
l


� U.S. Sugar has re-
peatedly issued misleading and
. incomplete statements regarding
the "value" that will supposedly
be delivered to stockholders un-
der the land sale transaction.
Specifically, U.S. Sugar has still
not explained how much and
when, if ever, such "value" will be
delivered to stockholders.
Moreover, it appears that a
significant portion of the "value"
promised by the land sale trans-
action is dependent on the highly
uncertain future of a company
that will be winding up its affairs
and that a meaningful portion of
the proceeds from the sale would
be used to pay taxes, repay U.S.
SSugar's outstanding indebtedness
and satisfy whatever payments
may be made to U.S. Sugar exec-
utives as a result of the deal - U.S.
Sugar has not made public any of
this detail.
As a result, although U.S. Sugar
has said that stockholders would
eventually receive $365 per share
under the land sale transaction,
it is entirely unclear how much
cash would actually be paid to
U.S. Sugar's stockholders up front
under that deal or when any pay-
ments might be made.
This stands in stark contrast
to The Lawrence Group's offer,
which would deliver to stockhold-
ers $300 in cash.
For example, if a U.S. Sugar
stockholder .were to take that
$300 and invest it in a portfolio
of investment grade bonds, the
stockholder could expect the
$300 to grow to $500 in 2016
without .the relative uncertainty
and risk presented by the $365
that is supposedly being delivered,
over that period. under the land
sale transaction.
� The land sale deal
struck by the U.S. Sugar manage-
ment and Board is riddled with
uncertainty, beginning with the
fact that the deal is subject to the
ability of the SFWMD to finance
the $1.34 billion purchase price in
this economic climate.
S� Most of all, for more
than three weeks, U.S. Sugar has
refused to meet with the Law-
rence Group or even consider the
terms of The Lawrence Group's
formal proposal, which suggests
that management's interests may
not in fact be aligned with those
of the U.S. Sugar stockholders.
The Lawrence Group urges
U.S. Sugar stockholders to ask


why the U.S. Sugar Board and
management have refused to dis-
cuss The Lawrence Group's offer
and insist that stockholders' best
interests are, in fact, being taken
into account.
According to The Lawrence
Group, the Board's behavior is
reminiscent of how it acted in
2005 and 2007 when the Law-
rence Group made two prior pro-
posals to acquire U.S. Sugar for
$293 per share in cash.
At that time, the Board did not,
and refused to permit the Law-
rence Group to, disclose the exis-
tence of the Lawrence Group's of-
fers to U.S. Sugar's stockholders.
"Think of how much better off
U.S. Sugar stockholders would
be today if they had been permit-
ted to accept our offers of $293
per share back in, 2005 or 2007,"
stated Mr. Lawrence, Jr.
The Lawrence Group was also
dismayed by U.S. Sugar's pub-
lic statement that The Lawrence
Group has not yet made a "for-
mal" offer.
The Lawrence Group sent let-
ters to the Board of Directors of
U.S: Sugar on Nov. 29 and Dec. 4
containing the terms of its formal
offer to acquire all of the outstand-
ing shares of U.S. Sugar.
In connection with its pro-
posal, the Lawrence Group has
retained the services of Rabobank
International, a global financial
services leader in the food and
agribusiness industry, and Skad-
den, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom
LLP, one of the world's premier
legal advisors.
The form of The Lawrence
Group proposal is absolutely typi-
cal for transactions of this type
and its formal letters to the U.S.
Sugar Board have specifically ad-
dressed each of the items recently
requested in the Nov. 20 and Dec.
S1 letters from U.S..Sugar's finan-
cial advisors.
"U.S. Sugar's latest public an-
nouncement is a continuation
of the campaign to discredit my
father, Gaylon Lawrence Sr., and
me at the expense of U.S. Sugar's
stockholders," commented Mr.
Lawrence, Jr. ,
According to The Lawrence
Group, its offer to acquire the
outstanding shares of the Com-
pany for $300 per share in cash
remains open at this time, and
The Lawrence Group continues
to view its proposal as a "win"
for all constituencies: U.S. Sugar's


Safe and Healthy Travel


By Brenda Barnes
Many people travel during the
holiday season to visit loved ones
and friends.
Some people may even choose
to travel internationally. Please re-
member the three "P's" when.it
comes to your health and safety
while you are traveling:

*Proactive - Try to think of any
issues that could happen while
you are traveling. Make a list of
things that you may need and talk
it over with your family. Have a
plan!

*Prepared - Remember to
take enough medications with
you. Don't put prescribed medi-
cations in your suitcase. You don't
*want your suitcase to get lost with
your medications inside! Keep all
medications in their original con-
tainers and put them your per-


sonal bag that stays with you at all
times. Take your doctor's phone
number with you as well as your
pharmacy's phone number just in
case you need medications while
you are away. No one wants to be
sick during a vacation, but try to'
think about what you would do if
you or a loved one should get sick
or injured while you are away
from home.

*Protected - Pack smart. Think
about what kind of clothing and
shoes you will need. Will you be
traveling to a hot or cold climate?
Consider packing a small health
kit (band-aids, first aid cream,
antibacterial wipes, or alcohol-
based hand sanitizer). Be sure to
put these items in a zip-lock bag
in case they leak. If you are stay-
ing in a hotel, take the sanitizing
wipes and wipe the remote con-
trol for the television. Studies have


shown that hotel TV remotes usu-
ally have a lot of germs!
Just remember to be safe and
healthy as you travel whether it's
by car, bus, plane or train.
If you remember these tips
when traveling, then you can fo-
cus on the scenery, not medical
emergencies, and return home
with nothing more troubling than
some wacky gifts that you pur-
chased or received during your
trip!
Remember, be healthy and be
happy!

employees,, the local communi-
ties, the environment, the State
of Florida and its taxpayers, and
particularly the U.S. Sugar stock-
holders.
Furthermore, The Lawrence
Group's proposal would provide
the SFWMD with the portion of
the U.S. Sugar land that it needs
at a fraction of the cost that would
be paid under the currently pro-
posed land sale transaction with
U.S. Sugar.
"Even though the Board of
U.S. Sugar is well aware that our
offer was conditioned upon the
land sale not having been agreed
to, we stand ready to begin im-
mediate discussions regarding
our formal offer which would be
more advantageous to U.S. Sugar
stockholders and, given our ex-
pectation to continue to operate
the business of U.S. Sugar into the
future, the Everglades community
at large, and we remain mindful
of the environmental concerns of
those of us who have an interest
in protecting the Everglades for
future generations," said Mr. Law-
rence, Jr.

Ringing the bells of hope


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The year was 1863.
Our nation was caught up in
the devastating war between the
states.
It was Civil War with memo-
ries of the horrors of Shiloh be-
hind and the blood of Gettysburg
more recent.
It was Christmas time, and
writer Henry Wadsworth Long-
fellow was grieving the holiday
without a son he had lost in the
war.
In the midst of his grief and
what was happening, Wadsworth
wrote one of his best known po-
ems, "Christmas Bells."
"I heard the bells on Christmas
Day, their old, familiar carols play.
And wild and sweet the words re-
peat of peace on earth, good will
to men!"
But the bells were drowned
out with cannon fire.
"Then from each black, ac-
cursed mouth the cannon thun-
dered in the South. And with
the sound the carols drowned,
of peace on earth, good will to
men!"
It struck a note of pain and


loss as he thought of the many
who had lost sons like him: "It
was as if an earthquake rent the
hearth-stones of a continent. And
made forlorn the households
born of peace on earth, good will
to men! And in despair I bowed
my head; 'There is no peace on
earth,' I said. 'For hate is strong
and mocks the song of peace on
earth, good will to men!"'
In the midst of all of this, there
came to his ears the ringing of
bells once more.
A church was ringing in Christ-
mas Day.
Each toll of the bell brought
a renewed hope to Longfellow's
heart: "Then pealed the bells
more loud and deep: God is not
dead; nor doth he sleep! The
wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
with peace on earth, good will to-
ward men!" (from The Complete
Poetical Works of Longfellow,
289-90).'
Hope.
Throughout history, in times
of peace and in times of war, in
good times and in bad times, in
easy times and in hard time, hope
is what carries us through.
The ringing of the church
bells was not much of a sign by


the world's standards, but it was
enough to be a sign of hope for
Longfellow, even in the midst of
hopelessness.
Appearances to the contrary
notwithstanding, the Lord has not
forgotten His people.
Every year at Christmas time,
we are reminded of God's great
gift of hope and promise for each
of us.
Christmas may not be much
of a sign by the world's standards,
but for those who believe, it is a
sign of great hope.
"The people who walked in
darkness have seen a great light;
those who dwell in a land of
deep darkness on them light has
shined" (Isaiah 9:2).
With the coming of this light
there is hope.
"A thrill of hope - the weary
world rejoices, for yonder breaks
a new and glorious morn!" (O
Holy Night)
So, "Come on, ring those bells,
light the Christmas tree, Jesus is
the king, born for you and me.
Come on, ring those bells, every-
body sAy, Jesus, we remember,
this Your birthday." (Come On,
Ring Those Bells).


The reason for the season


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
One of my mentors, com-
menting on some of the Church
services he attended, told me "At
some of them, it looked like peo-
ple were in pain. Serious expres-
sions and glum faces when there
should be joy, and radiances of
happiness."
That's how it must have been
in the early Church: there cer-
tainly must have been something
joyful about it all to risk worship
services when persecution and
punishment were a potential haz-
ard for being faithful.
The other day, I watched the
end. of a football game. One team
was behind by two points.
They were finally at the last
down in the fourth quarter and
fifty-six yards from their goal.
Their passing record during
the game had been dismal; and
finally a place kicker had been
sent in.
He had never made such a
kick before, but the blocking gave
him enough time to get one off
and it went squarely between the
goal posts.
The expected loss had become
a victory. As the TV cameras
scanned the crowds; the cheering
and hugging, the smiles and pat-
ting on backs were signs that "We

made it!"
I thought about that and it
took me back to what those early
Church services must have been
like. Joy and happiness, and in
spite of everything that was going
wrong around them, the people
knew "We've got it made!"
ThAt's the message of the com-
ing of the Lord into the world; we
will be bailed out, we will have a
reason to celebrate; that's the real
message of Christmas.
SIn the days leading up to the
beginning of the Lord's earthly
ministry, it seems expectations
were not very high. Another
prophet appears on the scene,
John the Baptist.
The people have had their fair
share of prophets; all saying that
"He's coming one day and will
bring a victory with Him."
After centuries of waiting, it is
no wonder that some are skepti-
cal and "would question in their
hearts concerning John, whether
he was the Christ (Luke 3:1,6)."
The people who had been
used to hearing prophets "ciy
wolf" were justifiably suspicions.
Suddenly, the Lord appears;
their hopes have not been disap-
pointed.
That's the Christmas story vic-
tory would now come out of de-
feat and there would be a reason
to celebrate. The picture before
was not a good one for the hu-

man team and there was little to
cheer about.
Then against what seemed like
impossible odds, there is a reason
to be joyful and happiness over-
came despair.
That's Christmas; the "reason
for the season" is that the Lord ful-
filled all of the hopes of people ev-
erywhere and we would triumph
through Him. We remember that
somebody came, came because
we needed Him and He turned
being lost into being found .
We celebrate that "God so
loved the world that He gave His
only Son that whoever believes in
Him should not perish but have
eternal life (John 3:16)."
That's a summary of faith and
a reason for hope; and what is
at the bottom of the real Christ-
mas message. The joy of families
gathering, the joy of the young
who know it is a special time, the
songs we sing all carry the mes-
sage of "Joy to the World, the
Lord has Come."
That crowd in the football
stand echoed for a few moments
the spirit of Christmas that is ours
forever; a victory from defeat; the
reason for the season. Recalling
the meaning, we can truly say
"Merry Christmas" - and may it
be a very Merry One - We've got
it made. Thanks be to God, we
have it made.

Christian College professor, had
some interesting things to.say
about the town of Jesus' birth:
He wrote:
"The town of Bethlehem is
mentioned eight times in the
story we love to hear of the vir-
gin birth of Jesus of Mary by the
Holy Spirit.
"Being the home of King Da-
vid, beloved of God, Bethlehem
was dear to the hearts of Israel-
ites. The name meant, "house of
bread."
So it was very appropriate
that Jesus be born there since
He is the "bread of life" of whom
we all need to partake for spiri-
tual growth and strength.
Most important is the fact that
there was a distinct prophecy of
the Messiah being born in Beth-
lehem.
In Micah 5:2 the Lord is de-
.scribed as being from everlast-
ing.
This is cited in the New Tes-
tament as fulfilled in Jesus (Mat-
thew 2:6).
The fascinating point here is
that the prophesy was so exact!


There were two Bethlehems
in the holy land - the one where
Christ was born and one in the
north, actually in Galilee near
Nazareth.
It would have been easy for
Joseph and Mary to go there.
However, the prophecy said
"Bethlehem Ephratah," or in the
south, Judah.
Two questions have been
raised about Christmas: (1)
The early church didn't observe
Christmas according to the New
Testament record; should we?
(2) Why didn't they observe His
virgin birth if it is so important.
In answer to the first, Paul
indicated that it is permissible to
observe special days of a culture
as long as they did not oppose
the Christian faith or teach and
practice, in the celebrations, any
activity that would undermine
one's Christian faith (Colossians
2:16, 21).
He would conclude in this
certain un-objectionable He-
brew activities which he himself
participated (Acts 18:18; 20:6;
21:26).
These would be comparable
to Christians in America observ-
ing Columbus Day, Thanksgiv-
ing, Christmas, Valentine's Day
and Memorial Day:
Just be sure to put Christ be-
fore candy; Jesus instead of jos-
tling; the Lord above luxury.
The virgin birth is important,
for without it Jesus would not


be God's only begotten Son who
could die for our sins (I Peter
1:19); 2:24).
However, the virgin birth
could not be proven.
It was a reality to Joseph and
Mary but to the skeptic an impos-
sible probability, so there would
be no witness for the Christian
faith in observing such.
On the other hand, His death
and resurrection were facts of
history.
A multitude had seen Him die
and heard the testimony of the
centurion (Luke 23:47).
Christ made 12 appearances
after His resurrection to reliable
witnesses, many of whom died
a martyr's death for their testi-
mony.
Therefore, it is reasonable for
the church to observe His death
by the Lord's Supper and His res-
urrection with worship on each
first day of the week, which the
apostle John calls the Lord's Day
(Revelation 1:10).
The fact that Jesus rose on the
first day of the week is mentioned
in all four Gospel accounts (Mat-
thew 28:1; Mark 16:1; Luke 24:1;
John 20:1).
Jesus might say, "Enjoy Christ-
mas with the joy of salvation"
(John 15:11)."

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

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

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

How are we doing?

Report

terview, the affidavit showed that
while talking about fleeing the
police, the defendant was non-
chalant about the incident.
"It's every man for himself,"
the defendant told investigators
during the fateful interview.
After the interview, Investiga-
tor Troy Snelgrove determined
that the information was sufficient
enough evidence to charge the
defended in the incident,.which
resulted in the deaths of the two
fallen deputies.
Upon further investigation of
the incident, the manslaughter
charges were later dropped by
the state attorney's office.
"The defendant was traveling
at about the speed limit when an
officer who had been trailing him
for some time initiated his police
lights, but not his siren," Attorney
Zacks said in the state attorney's
memorandum. "Seeing the police
lights and knowing that he was
driving a stolen tar, the defendant
sped up a bit, but went over the
stop sticks shortly thereafter, with
his car coming to rest less than a
mile down the road.
"These charges require cul-
pable, or gross, negligence on the
part of the defendant and again
also requires proof that this negli-
gence was the cause of the depu-
ties' deaths," Attorney Zacks said'
in the memo. "As before, these
elements cannot be proven."
Though:" the 'defendant was
spared the manslaughter charges,
he was still charged with grand
auto theft, eluding law enforce-
ment officials and resisting arrest.'

Detailed events leading
up to the tragedy
It was revealed that Deputy
Fernandez, along with a host of
other patrol units, trailed behind
the stolen vehicle on that night.
The attorney's memo discov-
eied that the. deputy responded
ffro a location 12.3 miles. from
'the site of the collision in eight
minutes. ,
The-attorney revealed that the
deputy traveled at a'high rate of
speed in an attempt to get into the
lead of the following deputies.
"As Fernandez approached the


Following deputies, he attempted
to pass the line of five patrol vehi-
cles on the left in the southbound
lane (of.S.R. 715)," the attorney
said in the memo.
According to GPS data, Dep-
uty Fernandez accelerated to ap-
proximately 111 miles per hour
while passing the patrol cars on
the left.
After collided with the two
deputies, who were reportedly
on foot at the time of the incident,
the K-9 deputy lost control of his
vehicle and crashed into a canal,
the memo revealed.
It was also. revealed that in the
two minutes leading up to the fa-
tal collision, which took place at
about 1:19 a.m. on Nov. 28. 2007,
there were a total of 15 radio con-
tacts.
The sequence of events, ac-
cording to the investigative report,
were as follows:
* 1:17:59 a.m. - Sergeant
Mack Coleman advises
the K-9 to come up front.
* 1:18:05 a.m. - Corporal

More details of the fatal
crash
On Investigator Snelgrove re-
portedly received autopsy reports
from the county's Medical Exam-
iner's Office.
In addition to the findings
made by Dr. Graham, toxicol-
ogy reports showed that Deputy
Manuel had a blood alcohol level
of 0.02 grams of alcohol, per 100
milliliters of blood at the time of
the collision.
Though that's well below the
legal limit of 0.08, it played a sig-
nificant role in determining who
was at fault. for thejatal accident,
according to the investigative re-
port.
The report revealed that it was
unknown if Deputy Manuel had
consumed alcohol before report-
ing for duty that night or while on
it.
James M. Cholakis, Ph.D., a:
consulting toxicologist, may have
provided the most decisive infor-
mation to the state attorney's of-
fice, which .played a. significant
role in the decision not to charge
Deputy Fernandez.
The report was presented to
investigators on Nov. 7.
"It is my opinion that the appli-
cation and rerfoval of stop sticks
from highway road beds by law
enforcement personnel is a com-
plex procedure requiring rapid


and precise cognitive and motor
skills, i.e., divided attention, cog-
nitive tasks, visual function, track-
ing ability and reaction time," Dr.
Cholakis wrote in his report to
investigators.
The ruling, according to the in-
vestigation report, was that while
it's difficult to predict individual
cognitive and psychomotor im-
pairment, it's possible that alco-
hol could have been a contribut-
ing factor in the accident.
In the end, however, it was a
Nov. 14 report issued by Geoffrey
Alpert, Ph.D., that helped decide
the final ruling in the investiga-
tion.
"Based on the 1.5 seconds it
would take the deputies to travel
into the roadway, Deputy Fernan-
dez would have had to been driv-
ing 45 miles per hour to stop and
avoid hitting the pedestrians from
186 feet away," Dr. Alpert wrote in
his report.
"Of course, Deputy Fernan-
dez'had no reason to expect that
there .would be pedestrians or
stop sticks in the roadway," the
report continued.
According to Dr. Alpert, using
186 feet as a distance and mov-
ing Deputy Fernandez's speed to
a slower 70 miles per hour, he
Would have hit both deputies at
66 miles per hour, causing cata-
strophic injuries.
It would have, according to Dr.
Alpert's findings, taken 164 feet to
perceive and react to the pedestri-
ans, with the driver being able to
brake for only 22 feet.
Bpth deputies then, according,
to Dr. Alpert, would have had a
'split-second more time to per-
ceive, react and retreat to safety.'
' However, given those findings,
it was concluded that both men
would have been .,'exceedingly
unlikely' to make it to safety, ac-
cording to Dr. Alper's report.
"Kudos to Traffic Homicide
Investigator Troy Snelgrove for an
excellent, clear and concise re-
port," Attorney Krischer.wrote in
his memo.
The attorney also took the
time to, thank all the deputies,
investigators and witnesses in-
volved with the information they
provided to help with this case.
"It has made this review more
informed and complete," the writ-
ten memo said in its closing.

Holidays

Wright said of the entire parade.
It was estimated, according to
city officials, that more than 1,500.
people witnessed the occasion,
particularly the parade itself.
Also, hundreds of youth and
adults were reportedly able to en-
joy free hot dogs, complete with
drinks and chips.
But of all the colorful moments
that occurred, a 21-foot Christmas
tree served as the center of attrac-
tion, filled with ornaments and
lights.
Hundreds of people stayed
throughout the event, as the fun
moved to the tree-lighting cere-
mony, held just a walk away from
Jelly Roll's Restaurant down-
town.
The Douglas Spur Christmas
tree, widely believed to be the
first live one Pahokee has ever
had, consisted of about 50 purple
ribbons, courtesy of the American
Cancer Society.
Also on the big tree was over
1,000 multi-colored lights, in ad-
dition to two 15-inch gold angels,
which served as a memorial to
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of-
fice Deputies Donta Manuel and
Jonathan Wallace.
Both men, who were bred in
Pahokee, lost their lives last No-
vember in the line of duty.
A standout element to the tree
was that citizens got to see the
host of hand-made ornaments
that students from Canal Point
and Pahokee Elementary School
made in honor of the event.
"In the last 40 years, I have
never seen so many people enjoy
a Christmas spirit like this," Com-
missioner Crawford said.
"To us, it was the biggest day
of the year."
The commissioner teared up
when he saw how. everything
turned out, reminiscing on how
Christmas was in Pahokee during
his childhood years.
"It brought back memories of
how it used to be," Commissioner
Crawford said.
He was overjoyed when the
children threw up 'snow' in the
sky and on the tree, akin to hav-
.ing, say, a white Christmas.
How did that happen?
Mr. Wright brought a big con-


trainer, filled with faux snow, to
the tree lighting ceremony.
While Mr. Wright provided
the memorable experience for
the children in that sense, he
was humbled by the reception
received from an unidentified
woman, who brought two kids
with her at the function.
The brief conversation be-
tween Mr. Wright and the woman
went like this:
"I haven't felt this way about
Christmas since I was a kid," the
woman said.
"How do you feel?" Mr. Wright
asked, hoping for a specific and
direct answer.
"It's magical," the woman re-
plied.
Over $12,000 in donations
from multitudes of individuals
throughout South Florida'helped
make the event possible, accord-
ing to Mr. Wright.
.It was reportedly an effort to
replace the Christmas decorations
that were destroyed by Hurricane
Wilma in 2005.
Now that all the hard work
paid off, Mr: Wright will cherish
forever the conversation he had
with the woman Monday night.
"That touched my heart," he
said.
In addition to the talk, Mr.
Wright believed the goal of hav-
ing a small-town Christmas was
truly attained.
"It was perfect the way it turned
out," Mr. Wright continued.
Alvis Davis, who helped orga-
nize the event with Mr, Wright,
couldn't.agree more.
"It was an unequivocal suc-
cess, the adrenaline was flow-
ing," Mr. Davis said.
Commissioner Crawford as-
sessed the event, which was also
organized by fellow commis-
sioner Diane Walker, who spear-
headed the parade.
When it came to Commis-
sioner Walker, Mr..Davis and Mr.
Wright, he simply handed out a
grade for how it was handled.
"I give them' all an A+ for
bringing the city together," Com-
missioler Crawford said joyously.

possessed.
Down at halftime against
Glades Central, the Blue Devils
capped an amazing comeback in
a 53-51 home victory, highlighted,
by Holmes's game-winning one
hand dunk with less. than two
minutes left.
With fans from both -teams
packing the Pahokee gymnasium,
pandemonium was felt in the air,
giving the boys a sudden sense of
urgency heading into the district
tournament.
After capturing the district title
in its defeat of St. Andrews, the
Blue Devils scored a home date
with American Heritage-Planta-
tion in the first round of the Class
3A regional tournament.
Though Pahokee wduld lose
that game, .it-must be noted that
they played very tough against
one of the nation's top teams.
At one point, the Blue Devils
even held a lead against the pow-
erhouse team.
Basically, the point is that
when the Pahokee players decide
to come together and play as a
team - not as individuals - they're
dangerous; as evidenced by
last season's inspiring'win over
Glades Central..
For this basketball year, Wil-
son Sr. is trying to hone that con-
cept early, evidenced by a series
Sof team meetings prior to the be-
ginning of the season.
"If we gell together as A team
'this season, then I think we
should be in the thick of things,",
Wilson Sr. said.
SThat being said, it wasn't easy
for last season's team to do that
early on.
'The overlapping of the basket-
ball and football seasons, Wilson
Sr. admits, presents an interesting
challenge for the team each year.
But he offers no excuses for
his team, even if the possibility of
struggling early occurs.
"I don't like it, but that's out of
my control," Wilson Sr. said.
In all fairness, most of the play-
ers .from last year - who played
football for Pahokee - were just
coming off of their record-setting
season, highlighted by a state
championship and appearances
in all-star games such as the Out-
back Bowl and the North-South
All-Star Game.
SThe team consisted of play-
ers such as All-Area point guard
Antavious Wilson, Anthony Shdp-
pard, Vincent Smith and Brandin
SHawthorne, among others.
None of these four athletes will
be on the team this season.
Wilson and Sheppard are cur-
rently college freshmen at Mar-


shall and Western Kentucky, re-
spectively.
Smith and Hawthorne will
head to the University of Michi-
gan this winter after they gradu-
ate from high school later this
month.
Though most of this year's
team will be joining next week -
the Class 2B football state cham-
pionship will be played this Satur-
day against Ocala-'linity Catholic
in Orlando - Wilson Sr. wants.ev-,
eryone to hit the ground running.
early and often.
With two games each against
Glades Central and Clewiston on
the schedule, plus their district
opponents - St. Andrews, Pope
John Paul, Inlet Grove and Cardi-
nal Newman -.the team concept
will have to be in place if they
want to win these key games.
Pahokee has already played.
two regular seasori games - a
Dec. 2 toad game against Jupiter,
which they lost 66-30, and last
night's home game against Cardi-
nal Newman.
Here's the rest of the Pahokee
Blue Devils tentative regular sea-
son schedule:
* December 16 - Inlet
Grove (Home)
.. December 19 - Pope
John Paul (Home)'
* January 6 - Royal Palm
Beach (Away)
* January 9 - St. Andrews
(Home)
* January 10 - Glades
Central (Home)
* January 14 - Cardinal
Newman (Home)
* January 16 - Inlet Grove
(Away)
* January 20 - Pope John

* January 21 - Palm Beach

* January 23- St. Andrews

* January 27 - Clewiston

* January 30 .- Summit
Christian (Away)
* January 31 - Clewiston
(Away)
* February 6 - Palm Beach
Central (Home)
* February 7 - Glades
Central (Away)
With a schedule like that, Pa-
hokee should be battle-tested
heading into February's Class 3A
playoffs.
Getting to 'the Class 3A state
Final Four in Lakeland will be a
huge accomplishment for a team
that hasn't won the state champi-
onship since 1982.
"We just gotta play together,"
Wilson Sr. said matter-of-factly.
"Everyone needs to trust in
each other and we'll do better
than last year."
