Annual event at
New Hope draws
hundreds

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza-
The Sun
PAHOKEE -- Santa Claus ar-
rived a few minutes earlier than
usual at New Hope Charities in
Pahokee, to the supreme de-
light of about several hundred
of his adoring fans..
He arrived in' his traditional
Florida vehicle: a helicopter.
Without any snow in South
Florida, Santa makes the ex-
Sception of being carted here
and there in the chopper.
The children rushed to the
jolly, old man, a dozen at a time
reciting their Christmas lists. A
few adults got in on the.excite-
ment, and when he sat down
to distribute the gifts to the chil-
dren, Santa got hold of one of
his oldest fans, and sat him on
his lap.
Lyariie Fanjul de Azqueta


stood by with a wide smile, tak-
ing in the sight of the children.
A member of the Fanjul family,
which owns Florida Crystals,
Ms. Fanjul said the event is eas-
ily her favorite of the year.
Simply to see the children
receiving toys that they might
not normally get is enough to
bring her back each year.
"God gives us so much, but
this is my biggest present," she
said.
Ms. Fanjul said it is the 15th
year that the toy-give-away
event has been held, and the
momentum to continue it is
not dying away anytime soon.
"We started packing food in
my mom's garage, and then we
saw the need here and started
giving presents to the church,"
she said.
The operation has become
a little more sophisticated since
then, though.
Planning takes part early in
the year, starting even ,before
the "Christmas in October"
event, which is the major fund-


raising effort for the toy distri-
bution.
This year about $7,000 was
raised by the fundraiser, with
charitable contributions in-
creasing :that figure to about
$10,000 -- all used to purchase
the toys.
"It's one of the hardest
events to. plan, but it's also
the most satisfying one," said
Guillermo Rivera, with New
Hope Charities.
This year, about 2,000 toys
and another 3,000 hot: dogs
were given out. Most of the
children there are residents of
Pahokee and Belle Glade, al-
though some made the trek
from surrounding Clewiston
and West Palm Beach.
"The kids get so excited,"
said Mr. Rivera. "That makes it
worthwhile."
Ms. Fanjul agreed.
"I just love it," she said.

Locals and Christmas spirit


Medley of selections
were performed
Dec. 21 and 22

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - Carl Fayos in-
spired the city over the week-
end, including Larry Wright, a
longtime friend of his.
Fayos, a Clewiston resident,
is currently undergoing chemo-
therapy for throat cancer.
Nevertheless, he was one
of several individuals who
sung Christmas carols over the
weekend near a 21-foot high
tree downtown.


Singers from the Pahokee
Church of God, along with the
trio of Carol Padon, Lacey Mos-
ley and Fayos, led the way in a
medley of a capella selection.
"I didn't realize Carl was go-
ing through that," Wright said.
"Chemotherapy robs you
of all your energy and for him
coming out to sing, it shows
the amount of belief that he has
in God and getting better."
After the two-hour carol
ceremony was complete Sun-
day night - the Christmas carols
were sung from 6 to 8 p.m. -
all 15 singers gathered around
Fayos to give him a group hug
and joined hands to pray for
him to get healed.


"It was very touching for all
of them to help him in his fight
against cancer," Wright said.
Fayos, who's a longtime
friend of Wright's, was diag-
nosed with the condition re-
cently.
It's not known how he ob-
tained the condition, since he's
not considered a smoker or
drinker.
"It's just a test of faith for
Carl, that's how he looks at his
situation," Wright said.
Many people stood around
to watch the singers perform,
while others just witnessed
the occasion from their cars
.nearby.

clears K-9





deputy


Corporal Gregorio
Fernandez faces no
disciplinary action
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PALM BEACH COUNTY - It's
official.
K-9 Deputy Gregorio Fer-
nandez has been exonerated
by the sheriff's office internal
affairs division as of Dec. 15.
According to the internal
affairs investigation, it was re-
vealed that he was not at fault
in the tragic deaths of Deputies
Donta Manuel and Jonathan
Wallace, who were killed on
Nov. 28, 2007.
The results of the investiga-
tion found that both deputies,
however, failed to comply with
the sheriff's office guidelines
on how to properly use a tire
deflation device.
The investigation revealed
that both deputies entered State
Road 715 (near Pahokee) in an


attempt to remove a tire defla-
tion device from the roadway.
When the collision occurred,
which took place at about 1:19
a.m., the K-9 deputy's speed
was clocked in at 106 miles per
hour, according to Investigator
Troy Snelgrove's critical speed
evaluation.
The investigation discov-
ered that at the time of the
crash, Corporal Fernandez had
a PBSO mobile data terminal
computer docked inside his
patrol vehicle, which investiga-
tors reportedly used to track his
whereabouts prior to the fatal
crash.
It was revealed that the cor-
poral's vehicle traveled from
the Pahokee gas pumps (580
State Market Road, Pahokee) to
U.S. 441 southbound, not long
before the collision.
As the deputy reportedly
turned right twice, first on
Hooker Highway and then on
S.R. 715 going northbound, the:

sued by the attorney general's
office for allegedly hiding fees
from their newspaper adver-
tisements.
In essence, the attorney gen-


eral's office is sayihg the com-
pany purposely tricked con-
sumers into thinking they could
buy a vehicle for an advertised
price, and then tacked on the
fees at the time of the sale.
It isn't the first time the deal-

practice.
According to the lawsuit, the
attorney general's office sued
the company and its owner,
Douglas Plattner, over the same
issue in 2005.

nents from the areas state roads for cutting practice. This
type of practice is not only invaluable to our member's but

Dreams of


Glades Central Raiders junior forward
leads the team in scoring (16.1 points
bounding (14.8 ppg) heading into tom
Classic Holiday Tournament.


Glades Central hopes
to make it a reality,
capped with a state
championship

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - Move over,
Glades Central Raiders football.
The boys basketball program
now 'takes center stage and is
poised to make the most of it.
Widely considered as one of
Palm Beach County's 'top team,
Edwin James, the second-year
head coach, aims to build on the
accomplishments made in his
inaugural campaign, which was
nothing short of impressive.
The Raiders, who won the Dis-
trict 14-4A tournament this past
February, were just one game
short of reaching the Class 4A
state Final Four last season.
The team, which featured
the likes of Eddie Poole, Clive
Walford, Deandre Holley, Rant-
avious Wooten, Antwon Chisolm,
among others, lost 79-55 in the
Class 4A regional finals to Miami-
Monsignor Pace.
Though that collection of
athletes were defeated by the
eventual Class 4A state winner -
Monsignor Pace is the two-time
defending Class 4A champions
- Glades Central more -than held
its own in the fast-paced contest,
holding a 20-19 lead entering the
second quarter.
But after Poole, got into early
foul trouble, the Raiders suddenly
fell behind and never recovered,
as they couldn't stop the scoring
duo of Ray Shipman and Raheem
Buckles, who combined for 55
points and 22 rebounds.
"Our guys didn't have experi-
ence playing in situations like that
and Miami Pace took advantage
of that," James said.
If Glades Central wants to
make it to Lakeland this season,
they'll likely have to avenge last
season's defeat to the power-
house team, which will be led by
Buckles, considered by some as
one of the nation's top players.
That's actually James's top
goal for the season, though he
knows in order to get there, other
business must be handled before
the Class 4A playoffs.

But P


reaching the Fi
willed its way to a stirring 53-51
comeback victory, highlighted by
a late-game, uncontested dunk by
Dexter Holmes to seal the deal.
"A game is 32 minutes long
and you have to play all the way
until the end," James said of the
Pahokee game.
"Pahokee played a good game,
I just think our kids were looking
forward to the district tourna-
ment."
... Not only did Glades Central
look forward to the district, but
they stormed through the tourna-
ment, posting three straight wins
en route to the District 14-4A title,
which was held at Okeechobee
High School.
The Raiders defeated Jensen
Beach in the Feb. 5 quarterfinal
matchup, 49-37, while moving on
to defeat host Okeechobee in the
Feb. 8 semifinal game, 62-41.
In the Feb. 9 championship
contest, Glades Central defeated
Santaluces, 67-43 to take home
the district trophy.
Now, as Glades Central looks
to win back-to-back titles, they
just need to stick to their strengths,
which includes rebounding, de-
fense, scoring at will and control-
ling the tempo of each game to
their liking.
Feeding off their ever-growing
fan base will be another key, as
well, since this season's district
tournament will be held at Glades
Central High School from Feb.
9-14.
Details of the district tourna-
ment will be made available to-
ward the end of the regular sea-
son.

But he does know one thing
and will stick to the concept for
the Derek Harper Classic.
"Any given night, you can be
beat by anyone," James said.
"We need to play hard from
start to finish each game."
Here's the games that will be
played tomorrow at Palm Beach
Lakes:
* Glades Day vs. Pompa-
no Beach-Ely @ 3 p.m.
* Glades Central vs. Mi-
ami Lakes @ 4:30 p.m.
* Santaluces vs. Mirimar
@ 6 p.m.
* Palm Beach Lakes vs.
Atlantic @ 7:30 p.m.
On Saturday at 6 p.m., the
Glades Central-Miami Lakes win-
ner will play in the semifinals
against the Santaluces-Mirimar
winner.
At 7:30 p.m., the Glades Day-
Ely winner faces off against the
Palm Beach Lakes-Atlantic win-
ner in the second semifinal.
The championship game will
be played on Monday, Dec. 29 at
7:30 p.m.
It's improbable that a Glades
Central-Glades Day champion-
ship matchup will happen.
But given the fact this will be
one of those very rare opportuni-
ties the two teams have to play
each other, James would be hap-
py to see it happen.
"That would be a great match-
up for this area," he said.
"People would know that we
have basketball in the Glades and
not just football."
Here's hoping that the Derek
Harper Classic championship tro-
phy comes home to the Glades
on Dec. 29.

The Mayaimis Indian Nationi UI ni
llv/ TXIT llll3 llUm/1 ^Un1a1uuoeBitfqtan tfnmt-


Fort Center Mounds

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
A thin, yellowish substance lay
sandwiched between the lime-
stone formations and the sandy
soils, marking the retreat of a pre-
historic sea.
The yellow substance ran
serpentine along the banks of
Fisheating Creek.
Its golden color radiated in the
dark eyes of the Mayaimis wom-
an, whose slender brown hands
dug the yellow, mineral rich soil
from its ancient resting place and
stored it in palmetto woven bas-
kets.
The burdened baskets of yel-
low soil were carried up the creek
embankment to a mound where
other women were already mix-
ing some extracted soils.
Water was added to the soil,
forming a mixture that had the
consistency of thick, yellow
cream.
The substance was strained
through woven mats and left to
dry in earthen pots.
Weeks later, solid, pliable clay
formed in the bottom of the pots.
Nimble fingers mixed sand
with the pliable clay and formed
ceremonial pipes with figurines
that dried in the sun.
Wood was placed around the
clay pipe figurines, and a fire ig-
nited.
Likened to a phoenix ris-
ing from the flames, the yellow
earthen forms turned a chocolate
brown as the hot flames breathed
life into them.
This tale describes one method
the Mayaimis Indians may have


used when making clay pots and
ceremonial objects.
It's time to take "A Walk in The
Past" and review some of the ce-
ramics found in the mounds of a
bygone Mayaimis town.
All of the bowls made by the
"Belle Glade Culture" and other
Indian cultures in Florida were
simple and unlike the more elab-
orate bowls made north of the
Florida peninsula.
Anthropologists wonder if this
"Florida Bowl tradition" indicates
a relationship with the early Indi-
an cultures found in Central and
South America.
This suggestion is an educated
guess; but remains another un-
solved mystery in Florida's an-
thropology.
The Mayamis Indian's "Belle
Glade Culture" is characterized
by the pottery they used: "Belle
Glade Plain" and "Glades Plain."
A. characteristic that distin-
guishes these pottery styles is the
sandy, scratched surface of the
vessels.
The pottery varied in size ( 8"
to 15" ) and was plain and un-
decorated.
Both styles are foupd at Fort
Center.
Pottery shards (fragments)
vary in color; Early "Belle Glade
Plain" shards are in the gray-
brown-black range and later pe-
riod shards are off-white to dirty,
light grey.
The early "Belle Glade. Plain"
shards are thick and readily iden-
tified by their reddish, brown
color.
There were other pottery styles
found at Fort Center. Some of the
pottery was more decorative than
the "Belle Glade Plain" or "Glades


Plain."
These pottery styles included;
St. Johns Check Stamped, Crystal
River series and others.
All were items that had been
traded from as far away as north
Florida.
So, why do you reckon those
Mayaimis traded their hard earned
furs and venison for more pots?
Time changes, but people re-
main the same.
No doubt, those lovely wives
in that bygone era consulted with
their husbands, for some of the
nicer decor potteries found in ole
Paris (North Florida) to fancy up
their kitchens.
Archeologists, William H.
.Sears and his team, recovered 74
fragments of pottery pipes that
represented a minimum of 50
pipes.
Most of the pipes were plat-
form pipes with different styles
and figurines.
A platform pipe had a figure
perched on the curved base of
the pipe.
The pipes were molded from
clay with a reed placed in the cen-
ter of the pipe stem.
SWhen fired, the reed burned
out and left a hollow stem.
Mr. Sears noted that thq pipes
were found at a single mound lo-
cation, in the same time period.
He thinks they were used as
ceremonial pipes.
Smoking was 'an important
part of Indian religious ceremo-
nies and magic.
Many different plants were
used for smoking.
A plant called "Nicotiana Rus-
tica" was probably the tobacco
used by the Mayaimis.
Anthropologists believe it


originated in Central and South
America.
It has three or four times the
nicotine found in "Nicotiana Ta-
bacum," the tobacco used today.
There will be more Tall Tales
about the Mayaimis Indian town
at Fort Center in next week's edi-
tion of "A Walk in The Past."
This article can come alive for
you and your families on January

Corps adjusts Lake 0 releases


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Jacksonville District began redis-
tributing Lake Okeechobee water
releases today; Dec. 15.
Starting at 7 a.m., water man-
agers discontinued releases to
the St. Lucie Canal and adjusted
the constant release to the Caloo-
sahatchee Estuary from 450 to
650 cubic feet per second (cfs)
as measured from WP Franklin
Lock and Dam (S-79).
The adjustments help main-
tain * salinity concentrations' in
both estuaries, which areappro-
priate for sustaining the health of
.the estuary'
The lake stage today is 14.17
feet (NGVD), more than a foot
below where it was after Tropical
Storm.Fay occurred in September,
and about four feet higher than it
was a year ago.
In determining whether releas-


es from Lake Okeechobee should
or should not be made, water
managers look at a variety of fac-
tors. For example, it appears that
low-level releases of 200 cfs to the
St. Lucie Canal are not needed for
the environmental health of the
estuary at this time. On the other
hand, the adjustment will provide
benefits to the Caloosahatchee.
The health of Lake Okeecho-
bee is rebounding well as wa-
ter levels slowly recede, and the
current lake level does not pose
a threat to the Herbert Hoover
Dike. In addition,' the long-term
weather forecast indicates the
possibility of a drier than normal
dry season this year.
S"Given these conditions, we
have determined that releasing an
additional 200 cfs via the Caloosa-
hatchee - rather than releasing
it to the east - helps provide ad-
ditional benefits," said Col. Paul


Grosskruger, Jacksonville District
commander. "We will always
work.hard to strike a balance in
a system that must support hiul-
tiple purposes."
The releases measured at the
S-79 will take into consideration
basin inflow into the Caloosa-
hatchee from Moore Haven (S-77)
to the WP. Franklin (S-79).
After a two-year study, in April
2008 the Corps approved a new
regulation schedule that balanced
often-conflicting water needs in
South Florida. Under the 2008
LORS, water managers try to
maintain Lake Okeechobee with-
in the preferred range, between
12.5 to 15.5 feet throughout the
year.
"From all reports, Lake
Okeechobee is rebounding from
two years of drought and many
years of high water - that's great
news for the lake, lakeside com-


munities and recreationalists who
come from all over the country,"
Grosskruger said.
On Sept. 6, 2008, the Corps
made its first water releases from
Lake Okeechobee under the 2008
LORS after the 720-square-mile
lake rose more than four feet in
30 days, due primarily to Tropical
Storm Fay rainfall.
For more information, please
call the Jacksonville District Cor-
porate Communication Office at
904-232-1953.

and flows for Lake Okeechobee
and the Central and Southern

Corps closes sections of Lake 0 Trail


Temporary measure
required for
construction
progress

Clewiston, Fl- Eastern sections
of the Lake Okeechobee Scenic
Trail are temporarily closed until
further notice while construction
continues on the Herbert Hoover
Dike.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers has closed the trail in two
locations: a 9-mile stretch from
Port Mayaca to Canal Point, and a
9.8-mile stretch from Pahokee to
Belle Glade, while three construc-
tion crews install cutoff wall with-
in the dike to prevent erosion.


"Safeguarding the public is our
highest priority.- that's the num-
ber one reason we're rehabilitat-
ing the dike," said Ingrid Bon,
project manager for the Herbert
Hoover Dike (HHD).
"While this construction is
ongoing, we also want to ensure
the safest conditions possible at
these work sites - not only for the
public, but for the workers there,
too."
Three Corps contractors be-
gan preparations for installing the
cut-off wall in October along the
southeast shore of Lake Okeecho-
bee, between Port Mayaca and
Belle Glade.
The Corps considers this 22-
mile stretch, called Reach 1, the
most vulnerable section of the
143-mile dike.


Bon says the Corps is leaving
the central portion of the trail in
Reach 1 open, from Pahokee to
Canal Point.
Since there will not be work in
that section of the dike for a while
yet, foot traffic and bicyclists can
use the trail there.
There are no dike access points
north of Canal Point to Sand Cut.
Recreationists who want to tra-
verse the whole trail distance with
minimal obstruction can take
Highway 715, which parallels the
dike/trail for 22 miles from Port
Mayaca to Belle Glade.
Thousands of visitors each
year enjoy the trail for walking,
hiking, rollerblading, bicycle and
horseback riding.
More than half of the 110-mile
trail is paved, and the remainder


consists of a two-track gravel
roadway on top bf the Herbert
Hoover Dike.
Corps contractors installing
the cutoff wall will return the
dike, including sections of the
trail that are not paved, to its pre-
construction condition.
For more information, con-
tact the South Florida Operations
Office at 863-983-8101, or go to

Healthy Eating During the Holidays


By Brenda Barnes
Nibble here -- nibble there --
nibble-nibble everywhere! The
holiday season gives us plenty
of opportunities to nibble on all
sorts of goodies.
You might be baking cookies,
making candy, or cooking a com-
plete holiday meal, but please
remember that each time you
"taste" something; those are add-
ed calories. Calories may be the
last thing that you want to hear
about just before the big holiday,


but a nibble here and a nibble
there will add up to a lot of extra
calories before you realize it.
It's okay to eat .some Of your
favorite foods during the holiday
season, but try not to go over-
board. Try to plan ahead.
Decide what foods are your
favorites and what foods you can
do without. Don't be afraid to
say "no." If your Moin or Grand-
mother begs you to try all of their
hearty dishes, just tell them that
you want to save your taste buds
for your favorites.


Don't skip meals! You need to
keep your body satisfied so that
you don't over indulge at the end
of the day.
Drink plenty of water and
munch on something healthy
before starting to cook or before
attending any parties.
Try to keep yourself busy by
talking with family and friends
instead of focusing on the table
full of goodies. If you do happen
to splurge one day, it doesn't have
to sabotage your entire holiday
healthy eating plan.


Accept the choices that you
made and start fresh the next day
without feeling guilty and give it
your best.
Happy Holidays and remem-
ber, be healthy and be happy!

Corps, SFWMD to begin aerial treatment of lake


Beginning Jan. 5, the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict with the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers and the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission will begin aerial treat-
ments of water lettuce and water
hyacinths, two invasive exotic
plants, on Lake Okeechobee.
'Although there has been a
consistent presence of six to 12


boats spraying for water lettuce
and water hyacinth on the Lake
in recent weeks, the rapid rise in
water levels after Tropical Storm
Fay over-stimulated the germina-
tion and proliferation process
of the aquatic plants. They have
spread over a vast area, primar-
ily along the lakeward edge of
the marsh and in some interior
marshes. These dense patches of


vegetation can prevent growth of
other desirable native vegetation,
as well as inhibiting boat traffic.
The interagency teams plan to
aerially treat 1,000 acres in places
where solid bands of the exotic
plants exist. At present, the areas
to be treated extend from mid-Ob-
servation Shoal northward along
the outside marsh, with some
treatments extending along the


north and eastern shores of the
lake as well. This aerial treatment
is considered the safest and most
efficient way to gain control of the
rapidly growing non-native float-
ing vegetation on Lake Okeecho-
bee. This measure, along with the
continued treatment by boat and
airboat of an additional 500 acres,
will limit the expansion of these
exotic, invasive weeds.

Christmas


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I have often asked people
"Where do you see yourself/
selves in five year?"
It is something that many do
not think about; the important
things.is to "get the show on the
road" now.
Couples seeking to get mar-
ried want it to happen yesterday,
or at least right now, or at least as
soon as possible.
Someone starting a career says
"Finally, I've arrived" and before
the ink is dry on a diploma can't
wait'to show the skills gathered
up.
Buying a house is a day of cel-
ebration, but it's only the first step


- As the end of t


in making it a home.
That takes awhile as furni-
ture is placed, pictures are hung,
desks become cluttered, rooms
are renovated.
Buying is only the first step; liv-
ing out the dream that it brings is
the unfolding gift of that first day.
I remember having a list of
courses to complete hung up in
my room while I was in college;
checking off four of five of them
at the end of each term and look-
ing at how many more there
were to go before I'd be done - so
I thought.
NoW, we've just lived with an-
other time of waiting to "get the
show on the road" - Christmas.
Finally, Christmas has come!
The question can still be asked;
"What will Christmas mean in five


years?" and like everyone anxious
for the coming of the big day, they
probably haven't though much
beyond the day.
Christmas is about the coming
of the Lord - and all that it meant.
It is the end of hopes for cen-
turies; finally the big day has ar-
rived.
The first step was taken by
God; now we are to live out its'
promise..
Things will be different now;
there is a new relationship be-
tween God and humanity; It will
mean that hereafter there is a rea-
son to hope, a reason to believe
that the future will be better than
the past, and that things will be
different in the days to come.
Yes, the world is still not per-
fect; news seems to be going


from bad to worse, tragedies and
problems are still with us.
There is also the promise of
Christmas; with all that is wrong,
God has sent His Son to make
things right.
Why should we believe that?
The history of people before
the coming of the Lord is a history
of people that lived in hope.
Someday there would be
peace on earth; someday there
would be salvation, someday
there would be a new start for hu-
manity, and it will all come to us.
People could look to the past,
as bleak and dark as it often was;
and see that God was there all
along; guiding, leading, protect-
ing, sheltering, helping, giving
hope.

A solitary soldier's special Christmas story


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
As we celebrate Christmas
with our families, let us not for-
get those men and women who
are away from home, doing their
job that we might enjoy our free-
doms.
We have enjoyed so much
freedom for so long that some-
times we might be in danger of
taking for granted the sacrificial
costs of preserving it.
This Christmas season, let us
remember our Marines, Army
Soldiers, Coast Guards, Air Force,
Navy and Special Forces, - both
past and present.
Remember also our "first re-
sponders" here at home, and all


those special people who sacrifice
their time, comfort, and some-
times their very lives for us that
we might be able to live our lives
in relative safety and security.
May. we often stop and think
and pray for these special heroes.
May we in some small way try
to pay a tiny bit of what we owe
to those who have kept us free.
If possible, write a note or give
verbal thanks to let them know
we appreciate their sacrifices, as
well as the sacrifices their families
make.
And most of all, let us pray
constantly for them during this
holiday season, and continue to
bathe them in prayer in the days
ahead.
In honor of our soldiers every-


where this Christmas season, I
would like to share this poem, "A
Soldiers Christmas Story," which
I have been told was written by
Major Bruce Lovely.
"TIas the night before Christ-
mas, he lived all alone, in a one
bedroom house made of plaster
and stone.
I had come down the chimney
with presents to give, and to see
just who in this home did live.
I looked all about, a strange
sight I did see: No tinsel, no pres-
ents, not even a tree.
No stocking by mantle, just
boots filled with sand.
On the wall hung pictures of
far distant lands.
With medals and badges,
awards of all kinds; a sober


thought came into my mind.
For this house was,different, it
was dark and dreary.
I found the home of a soldier,
once I could see clearly.
The soldier lay sleeping; silent,
alone - curled up on the floor in
this one bedroom home.
The face was so gentle, the
room in disorder - not how I pic-
tured a United States soldier.
Was this the hero of whom I
just read? Curled up on a poncho,
the floor for a bed?
I realized the families that I
had seen this night, owed their
lives to these soldiers who were
willing to fight.
Soon round the world the chil-
dren would play, and grown-ups
would celebrate a bright Christ-


mas day.
They all enjoyed freedom each.
month of the year - because of
soldiers like the one lying here.
I couldn't help wonder how
many lay alone - on a cold Christ-
mas eve in a land far from home.
The very thought brought a
tear to my eye.
I dropped to my knees and
started to cry.
The soldier awakened and I
heard a rough voice, "Santa don't
cry, this life is my choice. I fight
for freedom. I don't ask for more.
My life is my God, my country, my
corps."
The soldier rolled over and
drifted to sleep.
I couldn't control it, I contin-
ued to weep.


I kept watch for hours, so si-
lent and still.
We both shivered from. the
cold night's chill.
I didn't want to leave on that
cold dark night - this guardian of
honor so willing to fight.
Then the soldier rolled over,
and with a voice soft and pure,
whispered, "Carry on Santa - it's
Christmas and all is secure."
One look at my watch, and I
knew he was right.
"Merry Christmas my friend,
and to all a good night."


'Let's Serve God and Defeat The Devil in '09!'


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
One of the Old Testament
Prophets wrote "They call good
evil and evil good."
I think that certainly describes
many in our society today.
Our nation will regain its great-
ness and strength only by restor-
ing the validity of the Bible as the
+ eternal message from God.
The strength of the nation will
be found in its commitment and


obedience to the Bible as the in-
spired and authoritative Word of
.God!
Someone has attributed the
following to Paul Harvey. The
message is entitled "IF I WERE
THE DEVIL" and this is what it
said:
*I would gain control of the.
most powerful nation in the
world.
*I would delude their minds
into thinking that they had come
from man's effort instead of God's
blessing.


*I would promote an attitude
of loving things and using people,
instead of the other way around.
*I would dup entire states into
relying on gambling for their state
revenue.
*I would convince people that
character is not an issue when it
comes to leadership.
*I would make it legal to take
the life of unborn babies.
*I would make it socially ac-
ceptable to take one's own life,
and invent machines to make it
convenient.


*I would cheapen human life
as much as possible, so that the
lives of animals are valued more
than human beings.
*I would take God out of the
schools, where even the mention
of His name was grounds for a
lawsuit.
*I would get control of the
media, so that every night I could
pollute the mind of every family
member for my agenda.
*1 would attack the family, the
backbone of any nation.
*1 would make divorce accept-


able and easy, even fashionable,
because if the family crumbles, so
does the nation.
*I would compel people to ex-
press their most depraved fanta-
sies on canvas and movie screens,
and I would call it art.
*1 would convince the world
that people are born homosexu-
als, and that their lifestyles should
be accepted and marveled.
*I would convince the people
that right and wrong are deter-
mined by a few who call them-
selves authorities, and refer to


their agenda as "politically cor-
rect."
*I would persuade the people
that the church is irrelevant and
out of date, and that the Bible is
for the naive.
*I would dull the minds of
Christians to make them believe
that prayer is not important and
that faithfulness and obedience
'are optional.
*I guess I would leave things
pretty much the way they are
right now!
That's why we need a revival!

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.

tracking device clocked his speed
at 115 miles per hour.
The triple-digit speed was
tracked as Deputy Fernandez
passed a line of PBSO patrol ve-
hicles, all of which were in pur-
suit of capturing Ernie Kirk Daley,
who reportedly stole a 1990 gold
Toyota Camry that night.
Inspection forms revealed that
the tire deflation devices assigned
to both deputies were operable,
as were the attached lanyards and
cord reels.
Investigators reviewed the
PBSO training files and rosters for
all three deputies involved in the
fatal crash, which found that all of
them passed the PBSO in-service
training exam.
In Deputy Fernandez's case,


his 2007 in-service lesson plan
covered such topics as the Hu-
man Factors Physical Effects of
Code Three and Pursuit Driving,
in addition to the physical appli-
cation of the driver's skills course
and driving scenario, the investi-
gation found.
It was also revealed in the in-
vestigation that the K-9 deputy
learned about a host of officer
safety concerns and vehicle po-
sition to include his vehicle as a
canine position.
Deputy. Fernandez reportedly
passed an in-service driver train-
ing in 2005, which included top-
ics of high risk vehicle stops and
emergency driving.
As for Deputies Wallace and
Manuel, they reportedly passed
the in-service examination in Feb.
and April 2007, respectively.
Within the 2007 In-Service
Lesson Plan, according to the in-
vestigation's findings, both depu-


ties physically demonstrated sce-
narios that involved the use of tire
deflation devices.
The investigation also found
that Deputy Manuel attended and
passed an in-service driving train-
ing on April 18, 2005.
In that lesson plan, according
to the investigation, some of the
goals listed were to understand
general orders related to pursuit
driving and tire deflation, as well
as the ability to engage in the use
of a tire deflation device.
Investigators reviewed District
Five roll call training topics and
rosters from 2004-2007, which in-
cluded emergency driving, pursuit
liability and deadly force, among
other topics of discussion.
Toward the end of the 261-
page long internal affairs investi-
gation, Geoffrey P. Alpert, Ph. D.,
who was one of three indepen-
dent experts used by the sheriff's
office in the inquiry, ruled against


the slain deputies in the crash.
"It is not difficult to misper-
ceive the distances and speeds,"
Dr. Alpert wrotein his memoran-
dum to investigators.
Dr. Alpert ruled that even if
Deputy Fernandez was traveling
at 70-miles-per-hour, it would
have not been likely both depu-
ties would make it to safety.
He concluded in the investi-
gation that both deputies went
against their training to enter
the roadway to retrieve the stop,
sticks, in addition to misjudging
the distance the police vehicles
were from them when they en-
tered the road.
The summary of the investi-
gation revealed that seven PBSO
patrol cars tactically followed
the stolen vehicle without using
emergency lights or sirens as they
waited for Deputy Fernandez to
proceed to the front of the line.
The move was made, accord-


ing to the investigation findings,
so the K-9 deputy could initiate
the felony traffic stop.
The procedure, investigators
said, is recommended by agency
policy and had been directed and
monitored by supervisory per-
sonnel who reportedly oversaw
the action.
The summary also found that
Deputy Wallace's tire deflation
device was deployed on S.R. 715
without the essential cord reel at-
tached.
After the defendant's stolen ve-
hicle refused to stop for deputies,
passing the tire deflation device,
Deputy Wallace reportedly ad-
vises to fellow deputies over the
police radio these words:
"We got a hit, Pahokee 11 we
got a hit," Deputy Wallace said
over the radio.

practices.
A. repeat within the next four
years would represent a violation
that now opens the company up
to paying $10,000 per violation.
The lawsuit demonstrates 100
violations since that time.
SAgain and again, the company
placed advertisements in the Palm
Beach Post featuring prominently
displayed car prices.
The prices carried an asterisk,
with the clarification "All offers
plus tax, tag, title & dealer fees."
Those dealer fees weren't list-
ed outright, the attorney general
contends.
"They are deceptive and mis-
leading in that they publish or ad-
vertise a purchase price.that does
not include the dealer fee, which
is a fee set by the dealer in arbi-
trary and capricious amounts,"
the lawsuit stated.
I Attorneys reportedly did not
determine the amount of dealer
fees through their investigation,
since that fee could have been
different in each separate sale of
vehicles, according to Victoria
Langley Heller, public informa-


of vehicles, made this advisory:
"Clear em, K-9's coming on
the left, clear em, K-9's coming,"
Deputy Berardone said.
- "23 one, stop stick's still out,"
Deputy Wallace responded on the
radio.
It was revealed in the investi-
gation that Deputy Manuel - who
was discovered by toxicology re-
ports as having a .02 blood alco-
hol count level at the time (well
below the legal limit) - did not
transfer his assigned equipment,
including his assigned Stinger tire
deflation device, into his loaner
vehicle, making it available for
deployment.
The investigation found that
these instances, among others,
played a significant role in the
deaths of Deputies Manuel and
Wallace.

The lawsuit is seeking "full and
complete restitution" to any con-

the victim of the price manipula-

Neither Mr. Plattner nor his
company responded to requests
for comment regarding the attor-
ney general's lawsuit and allega-

An official with the local car
dealership said he was part of a
transition team and only knev of
the lawsuit after reading an article
that referred to it in a local news-
paper.
"Ads that are deceptive or that
are intended to-mislead consum-

said Attorney General McCollum.
Plattner owns 11 dealerships
in the state of Florida, although
Plattner's Belle Glade is the only
dealership named in the suit.
