Pahokee wins 3rd straight title


Dennis Hall'S game-
winning touchdown
grab seals the deal

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SORLANDO - Make it three in a
row and five out of six.
That signifies the Class 2B
state championships the Paho-
kee Blue Devils have woin.
i Unlike last season, which gar-
nered the Blue Devils a No. 6 na-
tional ranking and a 14-0 record,


this year's championship run
has to be classified as anything
but easy.
It's certainly the case in the
Dec. 13 Class 2B title game, as
Pahokee earned every bit of their
21-17 comeback victory against
Ocala-Trinity Catholic.
Down 17-14 in the closing
minutes of their epic battle, two
juniors proved to be the game's
difference makers as De'Joshua
Johnson launched a 19-yard
touchdown pass to Dennis Hall
with just 55 seconds left.
After Miguel Rodriguez boot-
ed in the extra point to put Pa-


hokee up by four, the defense
scored a chance to put the game
away.
With 16 seconds left in the
game, Pahokee called timohut
when Trinity Catholic advanced
to the Blue Devils' 30-yard line..
In three attempts at the eid
zone, all of Trinity Catholic's
passes, thrown by quarterback,
Rob Henry, fell incomplete as
time expired.
Hall explained the sequence
of that championship-winning
play.

nator.Jonathan Johnson) called

City plansanother move .


New modules will
reportedly open on
Jan. 9

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - Wayne Whitak-
er's dream of having an all-new
Pahokee city hall will have .to
wait for a while.
Nevertheless, the Pahokee
mayor seems happy about a
significant move that's set to
take place on Jan. 9.
As of that date, the city hall
offices will move from 207 Be-
gonia Avenue to a new modu-


lar building.
The two modular units,
which will likely house all of
the cify's departments, save for
parks and recreation, will be lor
cated on the south end parking
lot of the now-defunct city hall
building.
The two-story facility, locat-
ed at 171 N. Lake Ave., was de-
stroyed by Tropical Storm Fay
about four months ago.
"They're all ready to go,"
Mayor Whitaker said of the
modules.
The new building, city of-
ficials say, was funded for ap-
proximately $97,000 by Jess
Santamaria, who's the District
Six Palm Beach County Com-


missioner.
The city is grateful for the
availability of the modules,
which reportedly offers more
space than the current building
they're in right now, consider-
ing the fact that it was 'previous-
ly used as a doctor's office.
Leasing for the current
building, owned by Raymond
Hamilton, began in August and
lasts until July of next year.
The city reportedly rents
the building for approximately
$1,200 per month.
Now, city officials have not
lost sight of plans to erect a
permanent replacement for the

my number and I knew I had to
make that play," Hall said, add-
ing that the play was designed
specially for him.
,"Once the ball got into my
hands, I hooked the ball into my
arms and broke two defenders'
tackles," the junior wide receiver
continued.
"I was determined to get
into the end zone, so I dove into
it," he said, adding that he was
.'speechless' after the catch.
"My adrenaline was pumping
so hard and the crowd was go-
ing crazy over it."
The fourth quarter was as dra-


matic as it could get, considering
the fact Pahokee held a 14-7 lead
going into the final frame.
With 8:58 left in the game,
Trinity Catholic kicker Frankie
Velez kicked a 34-yard field goal
to cut Pahokee's lead to 14-10.
It culminated a 10-play, 48-
yard drive that started from Trin-
ity Catholic's 35-yard line with
1:05 left in the third quarter.
After Pahokee's next drive
stalled on a three-and-out, Trin-
ity Catholic's offense seemed to
be on a mission.

Sugar buy


Save for a caveat,
district asks for
little changes

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
An oftentimes contentious
final meeting for the reviewvof-a
contract to purchase U.S. Sugar,
carried over a day while pro-
ponents and opponents made
their arguments.
A heated final few hours
seemed to test the patience of


even the most seasoned South
Florida Water Management
District board rhembers on
Tuesday in West Palm Beach,
who could be seen agitatedly
rubbing their faces, or grab-
bing their hair during some of
the thicker' moments of that
meeting.
In the end, the board nar-
rowly voted to approve the
contract to purchase 180,000
ofU.S. Sugar's land, almost all
of that company's land used in
production. II is one of the larg-

Male victim's
female friend
victimized in
purse-snatching

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - A man was
shot on Dec. 12 after a female
friend was robbed at gunpoint.
According to Eric Davis, a
deputy and spokesperson for


the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office (PBSO), the incident
occurred after the woman was
removing groceries from her
car.
The male victim, Jeremiah
Jenkins, 24, was reportedly
shot when he came around the
woman's vehicle to see what
was going on.
The suspect, who is de-
scribed as a male, then ran off
with the female victim's purse,

Wrestling all the





way to the summit


Clewiston and Glades
Central look to make
impact in Class 1A
this season

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION - The
area's two wrestling teams will
try to scramble its way to the top
of Class 1A this season.
Clewiston and Glades Central,
both of which met in last year's
Clewiston Invitational, aim to win
their respective districts.
Both teams finished third in
their respective district tourna-
ments last season, with Clewistorn
being edged out by South Fort
Myers (District 12-1A champions)
and Naples (District 12-1A runner-
up).
District 12-A, includes teams
such as LaBelle, Estero, Immoka-
lee and Golden Gate.
Glades Central, meanwhile,
was defeated by Jupiter Chris-
tian (District 13-1A champions)
and Jensen Beach (District 13-1A
runner-up).
District 13-1A, which also in-
cludes' Benjamin, Cardinal New-
man and Suncoast.
For both teams to maximize
their potential, they know that
competing hard in each meet is
an absolute must.
Clewiston and Glades Central
feature a host of standout wres-
tlers, including Joey Cordova
(Clewiston), Damarian Allen
(Clewiston) and Wilky Exantus
(Glades Central), to name just a
few.
Cordova and Alien, both se-
niors, were named co-MVPs at
this past May's Clewiston Winter/
Spring sports banquet.
Both standouts, which quali-
fied for the Class 1A state tour-
nament iq Lakeland last season,
seek to become state champions
in their respective weight classes
come February.
Cordova (152 lb. weightclass)
and Alien (171 lb. weight class),
hoth currently undefeated head-
ing into Saturday's Clewiston In-
vitational, are ranked No. 7 in the
'state in their weight classes.
David Gay, Clewiston's sec-
ond-'ear head .coach, believes
that other wrestlers such as Alex
Bentanicor (125 lb. class), Andy
Cordova (130 lb. class), Damian
Smith (160 lb. class) and
Fourth-ranked Adam Trevino
(215 lb. class), could emerge in
the state tournament as well.
Trevino was another standout
wrestler, who qualified for the
state tournament last season.
"It's gonna be a hard road, but
I think they'll qualify," Gay said.
Exantus, who was the runner-
up in last season's Palm Beach
County wrestling meet, is now
considered Glades Central's vet-
eran leader.
Looking to make his first ap-
pearance in the Class 1A state
tournament, Exantus will try to
take himself and his Glades Cen-
tral team over the top this sea-
son.
The Raiders will have three re-
turning wrestlers, including Law-
ton Petitefree (189 lb. class) and
Eli Blye (Heavyweight class).
The rest of, the team are
newcomers, according to Marc
Schultz, the sixth-year head
coach.
"We have quite a few who are
new to the sport," Schultz said.
"They are working hard in
practice and learning quick," he
continued
."We should be strong and
peak at the right time when play-
offs begin."

Head Coach: David Gay (sec-
ond season)

Clewiston has already partici-
pated in three meets this season,
including a Nov. 22 date at the
Golden Gate Invitational, a Dec.
6 competition at the Park Vista
Invitational and a Dec. 13 date at
Okeechobee.
In the Nov. 22 meet at Golden
Gate, Bentancor and Andy Cor-
dova placed first, while Baucum
and Soriano placed second and
fourth, respectively.
, At the Park Vista meet, Clewis-
ton finished third as a team,
behind Western High and Park
Vista.
Seven wrestlers placed in the
Dec. 6 tournament, including
Bentancor (first place; won by
decision in the finals), Andy Cor-
dova (third place), Soriano (sixth
place), Baucum (third place),
Joey Cordova (first place; won
by technical pin in finals), Allen
(first place; won by technical pin
in finals) and Trevino (first place;
won by pin in finals)

Clewiston wrestling
meet on Saturday
Heading into the Dec. 20
competition - the Saturday meet
will be held at Clewiston Middle
School, beginning at 10 a.m. - Gay
is hoping that his team will finish
in the top two, at the very least.
In last season's Clewiston In-
vitational, held at Clewiston High
School, Clewiston, as a team,
won the meet, while Immokalee
was the runner-up.
This weekend, some key play-
ers won't be able to compete, but
Gay thinks the wrestling team will
be just fine.
"We'll be missing some our
studs, but I still think the young
kids we have will pull through,"
Gay said.
The teams that will be com-
peting in Saturday's meet include
Glades Central, Immokalee, Mar-
tin County, LaBelle, Evangelical
Christian, Golden Gate, Naples,
St. Andrews, Sebring, Gateway
Charter and Suwanee High.
The top three wrestlers in each
weight class will receive medals-
and a special award will be given
out to the meet's most outstand-
ing wrestler.
The top two teams, according
to Gay, will earn plaques at the
end of the meet.
The rest of Clewiston's 2008-
2009 wrestling schedule is as fol-
lows:

Gators look for respect


By Naji Tobias
BELLE GLADE - The Glades
Day Gators boys basketball team
is enjoying a nice run so far this
season. Building on last year's
success, as evidenced by their
18-7 overall record, Glades Day
is now considered on of the top
teams in Class 2A.
Currently sitting at a 5-1 re-
cord, the Gators, according to
last week's Associated Press
High School Boys Basketball
poll, were ranked No. 8 in Class
2A. The latest AP Class 2A state
poll was released on Tuesday.
The team's only loss this
season was a tough 56-53 loss
on Dec. 9 to neighboring, rival
Clewiston, which has the same
won-loss record as Glades Day.
With 'that being said, it
wouldn't be a surprise if the Ga-
tors become state title contend-
ers once tournament play begins
in February.

Glades Day Gators
Head Coach: Jeff Browning
(second season)
Last season's final record:
18-7 (lost in District 13-2A semifi-
nals to Summit Christian)
Top Players: Sr. F Vince
Lewis, Sr. G/F Tariq Martin, Sr.
G Jairus Browning, Sr. G Alain
Damisse
Top Newcomers: Sr. G Ricky
Odige, Sr. G Ryan Romano
Veteran leadership will be the
key for this year's team, which
has a total of 10 seniors playing.
In fact, Browning says the
talent level in this program is so
deep, all of the juniors were rel-
egated to playing on the junior
varsity team.
Next year's crew, Browning
said, will all come from the JV
team, which consists of juniors
and sophomores.
"If any of the juniors moved
up to varsity, they likely wouldn't
see any playing time," Browning
said regarding the team's lineup.
Should Glades Day make a
run for the Class 2A state title this
season, it certainly won't be just
because of that veteran leader-
ship.
Another thing the Gators have
in their favor is their regular sea-

son schedule. In some cases,
playing a tough schedule could
ruin a team's season. But for
Glades Day, this likely won't be
the case. It's only beneficial to
a small-school team like Glades
Day, when it's scheduled to play
Class .6A teams such as Royal
Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gar-
dens, Seminole Ridge and John
I. Leonard.
Also, a series of district tests
awaits them as they seek to win
the District 13-2A tournament in
February. The district that Glades
Day plays in features teams like
Summit Christian, Benjamin,
King's Academy, American Her-
itage-Delray Beach, St. Edwards-
Vero beach and Jupiter Chris-
tian.
Summit Christian is the de-
fending district champion.
"It's gonna be a tough dis-
.trict, we'll find out early how
well we compete with these
teams," Browning said. The sea-
son schedule will also, include
the Derek Harper Holiday Classic
Tournament.
The holiday tournament, to
be played at Palm Beach Lakes
High School, will be held from
Dec. 26 to Dec. 29. It will feature
several basketball teams, includ-
ing Glades Central, a team that's
considered one of the best Class
4A tedms in the state.
"Glades Central is gonna be
really good this year, I think,"
Browning said. "If we get to play
them, it will be great for every-
one from the Muck to watch."
According to Browning, the
only way Glades Day and Glades
Central will meet is if they both
advance to the Dec. 29 champi-
onship-game.
More information on the Der-
ek Harper Classic will be avail-
able next week. As for Clewis-
ton, the home-and-home series
will continue on Feb. 3, a road
game for Glades Day.
It's the next-to-last regular
season game for the Gators.
"Our games with Clewiston
will be evenly matched," Brown-
ing said.
"I think both of our teams will
be very athletic and competitive
throughout the season."
But for Glades Day to avenge


its early season loss to Clewiston,
shot selection must be improved.
The Gators, as a team, shot just
28.8 percent (15-f6r-52 from the
floor) in its humbling defeat.
"We just need to keep work-
ing on that," Browning said.
"Clewiston played well through-
out the game. It'll work itself out,
we'll play better."
Here's Glades Day's 2008-
2009 season schedule:
* Nov. 25 - Defeated Semi-

* Dec. 2 - Defeated Palm

Mayaimis Indian Nation on Lake 0 .L---:'B-


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum Director
The coursing dark waters
of the creek moved sluggishly
through the evergreen islands of'
cypress on a timeless journey to
Lake Okeechobee.
Small sloughs, feed by the
creek, hosted thousands of snowy
egrets and other wading birds
that moved silently; hunting and
stalking a menagerie of aquatic
creatures that inhibited these far
flung, fertile waters of the creek.
Overhead, the sun's orange
orb cast long filaments of light,
which captured the images along
the creek in a spectrum of colors
before brushing them in long,
shadowy strokes across' the qui-
etly settled waters of the creek.
The picturesque image of an
Indian wood carver, gazing into'
the predatory eyes of a bird figu-
rine, reflected across the placid
waters of the creek.
A panorama of images fol-
lowed, portraying an array of
shark teeth, Celts and pottery
shards surrounding the seated,
silent wood carver as he cradled
.the newly resurrected, wooden
eagle that he had lovingly and ar-
tistically brought to life.
This tale depicts a real Indian
carver that once lived in a thriv-'
ing Mayaimis Indian town on the
banks of Fisheating Creek.
Today my story leapfrogs
across the lake to Fort Center, a
state wildlife preserve near Lake-
port.
It's time to take "A Walk in
the Past" to see how those early


Glades residents lived.
Archeologists call the Mayai-
mis Indians the "Belle Glade Cul-
ture."
It is a term that describes a
unique Indian culture around
Lake Okeechobee and possibly
the Kissimmee River valley from
approximately 1,000 B.C. to 1,700
or 1,800 A.D.
The Indians that once lived at
Fort Center left behind distinct
culture patterns and artifacts that
identify them as the Mayaimis, the
"Belle Glade Culture."
The Mayaimis were not the
first people to settle and build a
town at Fort Center.
There were earlier inhabitants,
a smaller race of people that built
and lived on some of the mounds
that the later Mayaimis occupied.
These earlier inhabitants have
been found at many locations in.
south Florida, but little is known
about them.
Our ole friend, Fontenando,
a Spanish slave of the Calusas,
gives us the name of a Mayaimis
towp on Lake Okeechobee that
some historians have identified as
Fort Center.
Fontenando wrote the Calu-
sas were "The masters of a large
district of county, as far.as a town
they call Guacata, on the Lake of
Mayaimi, which is called Mayaimi
because it is very large.
Around it are many little vil-
lages, which I will speak about
hereafter."
Archeologists believe the Gua-
cata town Fontanedo referred to
was not located atFort Center, but
at another location in close prox-


imity to the Lake Okeechobee.
They have some clues that
point to the east side of the lake.
They think that Fontanedo and
Jonathan Dickison lend some
interesting tips in their memoirs
that positions the Guacata town
on the east side of Lake Okeecho-
bee.
Both write about a tribe on the
east coast called the Guacaras.
Was the tribe and Mayaimis town
name a coincidence?
There are large mounds on
Lake Okeechobee's eastern
shores that fit the size criteria for
the Guacata town, but east of
Lake Okeechobee lies another
large network of mounds called
"Big Mound."
The "Big Mound" complex is
within the old territorial boundar-
ies of the Guacaras tribe.
Back in the day, Lake Okeecho-
bee was much larger during the
rainy season, and Fontanedo
could have identified "Big Mound"
as the town called Guacata on the
shores of Lake Okeechobee.
Hopefully archeologists will
uncover evidence in the future
that can identify Fontanedo's long
lost town.
The Mayaimis town at Fort
Center was large.
Archeologist, William H Sears,
identified a network of mounds
that are staggered for a mile along
Fisheating creek.
An interesting feature of the
mounds are the circular ditches.
found along the creek.
One ditch circle forms a quar-
ter of a mile diameter, three or
four feet deep; archaeologists call

this a Sun Circle.
Circular ditches and linear em-
bankments found at Fort Center
are characteristic of the "Belle
Glade Culture."
Archeologist William H Sears
spent six years researching the
Fort Center mounds.
He divided the Belle Glade
Culture at Fort Center into four
periods; I (1000 BCE -200 CE), II
(200 - 700), III (700 - 1300), and
IV (1300- 1700).
There will be more Tall Tales

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/gfuard-
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.

Health Care District names new hospital


Photo taken by John Ricksen
View of Lakeside Medical Center and its surrounding campus
under construction, November 2008.


Lakeside Medical
Center, on schedule
to open in the fall of
2009

The Board of Commission-
ers of the Health Care District
voted unanimously on Dec. 10 for
"Lakeside Medical Center" to be
the name for the new 70-private
bed hospital in western Palm
Beach Codnty that is on track for
completion in the fall of 2009.
"This name captures what this
new hospital is all about-a mod-
ern medical facility that has been
strategically situated to serve
all the communities which hug
the southeastern shores of Lake
Okeechobee," said Board Chair
Jonathan R. Satter.
Lakeside Medical Center is be-
ing constructed on a 50-acre .site
at the intersection of US 441 and
State Road 80, centrally located
with easy access from the three
towns of the region-Belle Glade,


Pahokee, and South Bay. The 70-
bed hospital will be able to ac-
commodate a service area that
extends beyond the Tri-Cities.
"Lakeside Medical Center re-
flects a new beginning, and we
feel the name conveys that for-
ward-looking, positive view," said
Bryan Cross, Chair of the Glades
General Hospital Board. "The
name Lakeside Medical Center
represents all of our communities
and our close proximity to Lake
Okeechobee."
The Health Care District de-
signed Lakeside Medical Center
with the comfort, privacy, and
safety of patients, their families,
arid visitors in mind. All inpatient
rooms are single-occupancy. In
addition, there are family-friend-
ly consultation rooms, and an
enhanced Emergency Room to
swiftly and efficiently treat pa-
tients. The ER also has direct ac-
cess to a large helipad to facilitate
Trauma Hawk and other aero-
medical transport. To promote
care and comfort for new moth-
ers, their babies and their fami-


lies, the new hospital features six
private labor and delivery rooms
and a dedicated area for ten pri-
vate postpartum rooms. In addi-
tion, Lakeside Medical Center will
provide a state-of-the-art visitor
security system.
"Our goal is for patients to feel
comfortable and secure the min-
ute they enter the doors," said
Health Care District Chief Execu-
tive Officer Dwight D. Chenette.
"Lakeside Medical Center will
further advance the District's mis-
sion of ensuring access to a com-
prehensive health care system
and delivering quality services for
Palm Beach County residents."
Earlier this month, Glades
General Hospital Board members
were taken on a tour of the new
hospital by Michael J. Gates, the
Health Care District's Senior De-
velopment Director. Mr. Gates is
leading the development of the
campus and continues to ensure
that the scope, schedule and bud-
get objectives are achieved.
"It is such an impressive sight
to see all of the spacious private
patient rooms and how each
department inside the new
hospital is designed for maximum
efficiency," said Ronald Wiewora,
MD, Glades General Hospital's
Interim Administrator and Chief
Medical Officer of the Health
Care of Palm Beach County. "In
the near future, we look forward
to announcing several newly-
recruited physicians to join our
dedicated and veteran hospital
staff."
The Emergency Room has
been designed to handle patients'
needs efficiently and provide care
promptly. There will be 16 treat-
ment areas and six private rooms
in the Intensive Care Unit. In ad-
dition, there,will be three "fast-
track" exam areas. On the cam-
pus just outside the Emergency
Room is an oversized helipad
for the District's Trauma Hawk
air-ambulances. Patients who
are traumatically injured will be
rushed to one of the two Trauma
Centers in Palm Beach County.


This is just one of the ways that
Lakeside Medical Center is inte-
grated into the District's county-
wide health care delivery system.
When Lakeside Medical Center
opens, the staff and technology at
nearby Glades General Hospital
will be transitioned to the new
hospital, and Glades General will
be retired after more than sixty
years of service to the community.
From day one, Lakeside Medical
Center will function with state-
of-the-art technology, including a
16-slice CT scanner, an advanced
electronic patient records system,
and an Electronic Birth Registry
system, which enables the medi-
cal staff to gather patient data,
print out a report, and get the re-
quired electronic signatures - all
at the bedside, within minutes.
The Health Care District has
committed $53 million toward
the $73 million hospital. The
Glades Healthcare Foundation, a
non-profit organization, is leading
the capital campaign to raise ad-
ditional funds for Lakeside Medi-
cal Center and for ongoing health
programs in the western com-
munities. If you wish to donate to
the campaign, please visit www.
gladeshealthcare.org


or call 561-833-8999.
More than just a medical cam-
pus, Lakeside Medical Center will
establish a new community hub
for the surrounding area, provid-
ing a wide range of health edu-
cation and wellness programs in
the numerous special meeting
and event rooms. The large medi-
cal campus has ample space for
future expansion.
After the District Board voted
on the new name of the hospi-
tal, Board member Effie C. Grear,
Ed.D., summed up: "Ever since
this project was first announced
more than two years ago, there's
been a groundswell of enthusi-
asm throughout the Glades. That
hope now has a name - Lake-
side Medical Center."
About the Health Care District:
The Health Care District of
Palm Beach County provides
health coverage for low-income
residents, a nationally recognized
trauma system, clinics with a
dedicated nurse in more than
170 public schools, a pharmacy
network, a long-term skilled

and acute care hospital services

Health Care District is in the pro-
cess of constructing the Lakeside
Medical Center to serve the Lake
Okeechobee region.

About Santa Claus; Folklore rooted in reality


My own opinions
regarding the belief
of Santa Claus

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.D
Saint Martin's Church
He was most likely born in
Patura, in Asia Minor, in the fourth
century.
He was known to be faithful,
and became a church leader in
Mayra, the capital of the region.
It was a time of persecution
of Christian faithful and he was
believed to be imprisoned for his
belief.
He would stand against those
who attacked the Church later,


and defended his faith.
He would become known for
the special place he held among
children and sailors, providing
gifts for the young when their
families weren't able to do so.
His gifts were given in secret
but people really knew of his giv-
ing to children and the word was
spread.
He did God's work with humil-
ity and where he saw real needs.
As you see the preparation for
the celebration of Christmas, you
will see the reminders of his life
and work in the proliferation of
"Santa Clauses" in stores and on
streets.
Saint Nicholas was a real per-
son; his life and ministry among
children were soon seen as hon-
oring the special child who came


at this time: Jesus of Nazareth.
The connection between the
Babe born in Bethlehem and one
who blessed the lives of children
became obvious to people and
"Santa Claus" soon became a
herald of "Christmas."
The person in the malls and
stores is our remnant of the real
person; I wonder how many of
the children who have been in-
heritors of Nicholas' goodness
and tradition know that he really
lived and really cared about the
children he met.
The answer to the question "Is
Santa Claus real?" is... "maybe not
now, but he was real, and today
he is real in the life that comes af-
ter this life"
His remains are buried in Bari,
Italy and he has been honored


for centuries for the ways he ex-
pressed his faith for the Lord's
little ones.
The story of Christmas itself is
a story of a historic event and the
most special person in history.
It is about someone who lived
among us and how He came into
a difficult world, did not have an
easy life, gave Himself for others
and who also deserves to be re-
membered.
Christmas is special because
it is about real persons and what
they did for those around them,
and finally what they did for us
too.
When someone says that
Christmas doesn't seem special,
I wonder if they really know the
stories and heritage left to us that
is to be kept during this special


season.
Truth is stranger than fiction;
reality is far better than fantasy.
If there is something to be
handed down to our children,
something to restore the spirit of
the holidays that are soon here, it
is in celebrating what they're re-
ally about.
Do I believe in "Santa Claus?"
Yes.
Not the ersatz version of fic-
tional character with the sleigh
and reindeer, but the real Saint
Nicholas who loved children and
loved his Lord; and did good for
them because that was what his
faith led him to do.
He saw something special in
children and did something about
it.
The Lord Himself also became


a child when He chose to come
among us; sharing with us all of
the days here in a human family
and shared with brothers and sis-
ters; and knew the magic of fam-
ily and loved ones as He grew into
adulthood.
His coming and what He tran-
scends all of the legends and folk
stories that have grown up since.
Like other stories and folklore,
they can point to a ruth beyond
themselves; may this season and
all the signs we see point to that
story beyond; and may we keep
it and celebrate it with the worthi-
ness and love for the Baby who is
at the root of it all.


Two story of two babes in a Bethlehem manger


How the story of
Christmas was
interpreted by a child

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Sometimes God comes to peo-
ple with the heavens ablaze as He
did to the shepherds.
More often though, God re-
veals himself in more quiet ways
- like in the words of encourage-
ment spoken by a friend, or in a
child's smile, or the meaningful
touch of someone close to us - or
even in "a baby wrapped in cloths
and lying in a manger."
Take six year old Misha's per-
spective on the Christmas story.


In 1994, some American mis-
sionaries were allowed to go into
Russia and teach at an orphan-
age.
At Christmas time, Misha was
one of the orphans who heard the
Christmas story for the first time.
Here is what happened as re-
lated from one of the missionar-
ies.
"We told them about Mary
and Joseph arriving in Bethle-
hem. Finding no room in the
inn, the couple went to a stable,
where the baby Jesus was born
and placed in a manger.
"Throughout the story, the
children and orphanage staff
sat in amazement as they lis-
tened. Some sat on the edges of
their stools, trying to grasp every


word."
"Completing the story, we gave
the children three small pieces of
cardboard to make a crude man-
ger. Each child was given a small
paper square, cut from yellow
napkins I had brought with me.
"No colored paper was avail-
able in the city. Following instfuc-
tions, the children tore the paper
and carefully laid strips in the
manger for straw.
"Small squares of flannel,
cut from a worn-out nightgown
an American lady was throwing
away as she left Russia, were
used for the baby's blanket.
"A doll-like baby was cut from
tan felt we had brought from the
United States.
"The orphans were busy as-


sembling -their mangers as I
walked among them to see if they
needed any help.
"All went well until I got to one
table where little Misha sat - he
looked to be about 6 years old
and had finished his project.
"As I looked at the little boy's
manger, I was startled to see not
one, but two babies in the man-
ger.
"Quickly, I called for the trans-
lator to ask the lad why there were
two babies in the manger.
"Crossing his arms in front of
him and looking at his completed
manger scene, the child began to
repeat the story very seriously.
"For such a young boy, who
had heard the Christmas story
only once, he related the happen-


ings accurately - until he came to
the partwhere Mary put the baby
Jesus in the manger.
"Then Misha started to ad lib.
He made up his own ending to
the story as he said, 'And when
Mary laid the baby in the manger,
Jesus looked at me and asked me
if I had a place to stay.
"I told him I have no mamma
and I have no papa, so I don't
have any place to stay.
'Then Jesus told me I could
stay with him. But I told him I
couldn't, because I didn't have
a gift to give him like everybody
else did. But I wanted to stay with
Jesus so much, so I thought about
what I had that maybe I could use
for a gift. I thought maybe if I kept
him warm, that would be a good


gift.
'So I asked Jesus, "If I keep you
warm, will that be a good enough
gift?" And Jesus told me, "If you
keep me warm, that will be the
best gift anybody ever gave me."
"So I got into the manger, and
then Jesus looked at me and he
told me I could stay with him - for
always."
Christmas contains the prom-
ise that if we go to the manger
we will find the One who will stay
with us always.
In the midst of his situation,
Misha found that assurance. We
can do the same.
This Christmas, let us forget
about life's pressing demands for
a moment and snuggle in next to
the Christ child.


And that is the reason that Jesus Christ came!


How the birth of a
child changed a
community's way
of thinking

By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
There an8told story by Biet
Harte about a prostitute who died


at a mining camp, leaving behind
a small baby.
The rough men known for
their wild living weren't sure what
to do with the baby, but soon be-
gan making some interesting de-
cisions and changes.
Instead of putting the baby in a
dirty wooden box, they bought a
rosewood cradle.
Instead of putting the baby's
dirty clothes back on, they bought
new ones.


Instead of leaving the house
dirty, they washed the windows,
painted the walls and ceiling, and
cleaned the floor.
The baby needed rest at night,
so this caused them to be quiet--
thus bringing to a halt to their no-
toriously evil nighttime habits.
Soon the men were cleaning
up each day.
As the men changed their way
of life, Roaring Mine Camp also
changed.


A wicked mining "camp was
transformed by the appearance
of a little baby among them.
Jesus entered this world filled
with sin as a tiny baby.
He grew, He walked among
us.
He lived in perfect righteous-
ness, paid the price, for our sins,
and overcame death to give us
new life!
As we celebrate His birth, let's
allow Him to clean us up, rear-


range our priorities, and trans-
form our world.
* For every broken heart in
need of mending.
* For every lonely child who
needs befriending.
* For every time the innocent
will ever need defending. "
THAT'S WHY HE CAME!
That's why He came, for all the
lost and lonely.
That's why He came, for all the
questions only love explains.


And so that when we need
Him we can call upon His name.
THAT'S WHY HE CAME!
To bring His light into dark-
ness
And His healing to our pain
To bring hope when it seems
hopeless
THAT'S WHY HE CAME!,- :
-- Claire Cloninger

Title
Continued From Page 1
With 6:32 left from Pahokee's
47-yard line, Trinity Catholic run-
ning back Kedrick Rhodes (16
carries, 91 yards) rushed for 12
yards and a first down to the Blue
Devils' 35.
Five plays later, Henry (13-
for-29 passing, 208 yards, 2 TDs)
heaved a 17-yard score to wide
receiver R. Ciafardini with just
3:38 left.
That sequence set up Paho-
kee's next drive, which proved to
be their final one for the season.


Zachary Allen, who lined up
at defensive end for Pahokee, ex-
pected the game's outcome to be
the way it turned out.
"Coming into the game, we
knew it was gonna be a dogfight
because it's turning into a rivalry
between us," Allen said.
"Throughout the season, if we
ever fell behind, we would give
up and lose our confidence," the
junior continued, referring to Pa-
hokee's losses to Glades Central,
Bytnes, S.C. and Olive Branch,
Miss.
"But with this being the state
game, and our season dedicated
to Pooh (former outside line-
backer Norman Griffith), we just


couldn't let this season go down
without a fight."
Nu'Keese Richardson, who is
set to play in the Under Armour
All-American Game next month,
did not find the'end zone in this
game, finishing with four catches
for 22 yards and four rushes for 32
yards.
But numbers alone can't de-
fine a player like Richardson, who
also lined up as a defensive back
for much of the game.
"Statistically, it didn't look like
Pete (Nu'Keese Richardson) did
much, but it's immeasurable what
he brings to the table," said Paho-
kee head coach Blaze Thompson
of the University of Florida-bound


athlete.
"Florida is so high on Pete be-
cause they see what impact he
has on the game."
Thompson, the second-year
coach, put the game in perspec-
tive.
"Ocala-Trinity Catholic did an
outstanding job on their move-
ment and it confused our line,"
he said.
"We were able to block our
opponent, but it took us some
time to get some rhythm."
Thompson summed up the
journey that Pahokee navigated to
earn their sixth state title, which
was highlighted by the Sept. 27
shooting death of Griffith, their


fallen hero.
"This season, the kids have had
to overcome some things on and
off the field," Thompson said.
"It brings closure to an other-
wise extraordinary season," he
continued.
"We've had a lot of grief and
joy to deal with this year, but it
was a fitting ending."
Notes: The Blue Devils, which
finished the season with a 12-2
record, are tied with Glades Cen-
tral with six state titles apiece, one
more than Glades Day (five state
championships).
In all, the area has combined
for 18 state titles, including Clewis-
ton's 1982 championship.


Smith, who had 22 carries for
137 yards and a touchdown in
the state title game, finished the
season with 2,128 yards and 29
touchdowns - most in the area.
The Michigan-bound tailback
joins Clewiston's Darris Hughes
(2,043 rush yards, 21 TDs) as the
area's only 2,000-yard running
backs for th6 season.
Johnson finished 11-for-19
passing with 143 yards, 1 TD and
1 INT in the Class 2B title game.
Hall led all receivers with 62
yards on three receptions, includ-
ing the game-winning score.

Sugar

est purchases of land in the state's
163-year history.
A provision allows the district
to back out of the deal if obstructs
their goal of water management,
or if it carries the potential of wip-
ing out the district's budget.
The 4to-3 vote is the end of a
months-long back-and-forth be-
tween the state and U.S. Sugar in
delineating the terms of the con-
tract. In essence, it called for the
sale of the land for $1.34 billion,
and the lease of the land to U.S.
Sugar at $50 an acre for the next
seven years -- a figure that was
scrutinized by other farming op-
erations.
While a letter from Governor
Charlie Crist acknowledged the


detriment that the loss of such
a large employer could create;
and promised to urge along an
economic transition plan, locals
echoed concerns of previous
meetings.
The governor's remarks fo-
cused on the creation of a nation-
al resource mirrored only by the
Grand Canyon and Yellowstone
National Park. The governor's
words were simple, but his ide-
als were lofty -- the benefits of the
purchase and subsequent water
project would last more than 700
years into the future.
"Many people, including Mar-
jory Stoneman Douglas, have
looked forward to this day," the
governor wrote;
The majority of the board
members in favor seemed to hint
at setting a legacy for posterity.:
Audience members brought
very little new information in op-


position, but spoke passionately
in defense of their community
-- namely, that the lease price cre-
ated an unfair advantage for U.S.
Sugar, and that once the land is
purchased, from where will the
money come to fund the ambi-
tious water project?
"When this deal breaks your
back financially, you will still have
the outcry from the public," said
Karson Turner, newly elected
Hendry County commissioner.
"The vision is 100 percent (right),
the process and manner of how
it's being implemented, it stinks.
When something stinks, you need
to flush it."
Mali Chamness, Clewiston
mayor, spoke softly about her
community's intentions. She
responded to accusations that
"special interests" such as Florida
Crystals was responsible for cart-
ing locals to the meeting to im-


plore board members to recon-
sider the purchase.
"No one in our community
has to spread lies, we know the
facts," said Mayor Chamness.
"We're coming because we're a
community that loves our town.
We want to live there generations
after generations and continue to
farm."
Mike Sole, secretary with the
Department of Environmental
Protection, hoped the deal would
be approved.
"The Glades community, with-
out question, needs the support,
not only of this governing body,
but also the governor, the legis-
lature, the office of tourism, trade
and economic development," Mr.
Sole said. "This is the beginning,
but without the decision today, it
will be the end."
At one point during the meet-
ing, the discussion shifted to the


possibility of making a counter-
offer. The sense was that the lease
price was far too low, when inde-
pendent appraisers were valuing
it much higher. Is the district pay-
ing a premium, some asked?
But some on the board were
fearful that a counter-offer would
not be entertained by the sugar
company, and, that it might be the
last offer the company would take
a look at.
"We need to be very cautious
about this issue of the price of the
land and our concern about pay-
ing for a premium -- which we do
regularly, for getting the right land
in the right place," said Shannon
Estenoz, district board member.
"That could be the thing that
causes this whole thing to fall
apart."
Eric Bauermann, another dis-
trict member, agreed.
"We're here at a momentous


time," Mr. Bauermann said. "Like
a piece of legislation, this is not a
perfect deal. I'm not under any
personal delusion that this is the
perfect deal. This is our moment
in time and our moment in his-
tory."
Not everyone saw it that way.
Debra Van Sickle, chief credit
officer for First Bank of Clewis-
ton, mustered up the strength
to speak, though she was visibly
shaken.
She said the district was "cre-
ating and economic Hiroshima,"
and pleaded for a change in opin-
ion.
"I see this deal akin to swat-
ting a bumblebee with a sledge.
hammer," she said. "The odds of
getting the bumblebee are slim td
nil, but destruction is certain."

previous city hall, which report-
edly suffered $1.5 million in dam-
ages.
For one thing, there are plans
in place to work closely with the


Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) in obtaining funds
for the replacement, according to
Mayor Whitaker.
However, he said that the city
is currently in negotiations with a
private insurance firm on assess-
ing the actual damages.
City officials reportedly don't


agree with the damage amount
assessed by the private insurance
firm, which figures to be esti-
mated at between $80,000 and
$100,000.
Another private firm, accord-
ing to the mayor, will be serving
as a liaison between the city and
the private insurance company


in making sure that, proper as-
sistance occurs throughout the
process.
"We're turning over every
stone and looking for every op-
tion to provide funding for a new
city hall," Mayor Whitaker said.
"We're just waiting until the
right time."


Though space at the Begonia
Avenue building is relatively less
than ideal for city workers - some
departments are currently housed
at the Pahokee Chamber of Com-
merce building - the mayor is
content with the support that the
city has received.
"We're grateful to the owner of


our current building for letting us
operate here for the short term,"
Mayor Whitaker said.
Matthew Brock, the Pahoi
kee city manager, could not be
reached for comment.

FWC faces the Robbery
Continued From Page 1


challenges of



Climate change


Kenneth D. Haddad, execu-
tive director. of the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC), summarized the
findings from the recent "Florida's
Wildlife: On the front line of cli-
mate change" summit at Wednes-
day's Commission meeting.
"As a result of this summit,
we are ready to incorporate cli-
mate change into our programs,"
Haddad said. "This includes mak-
ing it a part of our wildlife grants
program and divisional strategic
plans."
The summit, held in Orlando
in October, brought together No-
bel Peace Prize laureates, college
professors, wildlife organizations,
private industry, staff and commis-
sioners from the FWC and other
federal and state agencies. Florida
is the first state in the country to
host this type of meeting. Many
other states are watching Flor-
ida closely, hoping to follow the
FWC's lead on wildlife adaptation
and climate change. I
The experts, including Nobel
laureates Jean Brennan and Vir-
ginia Burkett, stressed that Flor-
ida 's native species will migrate
north as climate changes. As a re-
sult of this movement, challenges
facing wildlife managers include
addressing habitat changes and
losses and providing connectivity
among habitats for species con-
servation.
As participants worked in six


breakout groups on various top-
ics, common themes emerged.
Haddad said uncertainty about the
rate and extent of climate change
will affect the FWC's ability to de-
velop precise plans, but the sum-
mit revealed the steps that can be
taken almost immediately.
"We can increase and main-
tain wetlands because of the im-
portance of their ecosystems and
the biodiversity they support," Mr.
Haddad said. "More public lands
are essential to create north/south
corridors to enable the species to
migrate safely."
The summit generated a tre-
mendous amount of informa-
tion for the FWC to develop a
blueprint to begin planning for
climate change. Haddad assured
the Commission that staff will
continue to research and moni-
tor for climate.change and reach
out to partners for the very best
conservation strategies for fish
and wildlife in Florida . Haddad
recently appointed an internal
Climate Change Oversight Team,
which will oversee all climate
change-related activities at the
FWC.
"The good news is the plan-
ning already has begun at the lo-,
cal and regional levels and among
states," Haddad said. "The level
of concern and interest over the
preservation of fish and wildlife
brought many potential partners
together during the summit."

Deputies say woman
charged at them

By Nina G. Wills
Special to the Sun
BELLE GLADE -- A 35-year-
old woman who is accused
of charging at an officer while
resisting arrest, was taken to
Glades General Hospital's emer-
gency room after sustaining in-
juries on Sunday, Dec. 7.
According to a report released
by the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office, a deputy was in an
alleyway in the 500 block of
Southwest Avenue E at 9 p.m.,
when he observed a fellow of-
ficer chasing a female subject
later identified as Temisha Kelly
of Belle Glade.
The suspect failed to stop
running from the officers de-
.spite repeated requests.
Upon seeing the second offi-
cer, the suspect reportedly took
an aggressive stance, dropped
her head, and attempted to
charge through the officer.
The officer tackled Kelly to


located in the 1100's block of
Southwest Avenue J.
No other information was
available regarding the incident,
as the sheriff's office is still inves-
tigating this case.

chest.
Kelly was taken to Glades
General Hospital's emergency
room for treatment.
After receiving medical clear-
ance from the hospital, she was
transported to the Palm Beach
County Jail without further inci-
dent.
When asked why she ran
away from the officers, the sus-
pect reportedly stated, "I have a
warrant."
The Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office could not imme-

being chased in the first place.
She was arrested for resisting
an officer with violence and for
having an active warrant.
