PBCC Provost resigns from post


Dr. Beverly Robinson
set to make move to
Albany St.
University
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES "I hate that she's
leaving, but its a great promotion
for her," said Leigh Woodharri of
Dr. Bevely Robinson.
The Provost of Palm Beach
Community College resigned
from her position on Monday,


Beverly Robinson


Jan. 5.
Effective next month, Dr. Rob-
inson will be returning to Albany
State University (Ga.), her alma
mater.
Dr. Robinson will be taking on
the role as the university's Vice
President of Student Affairs, but
not before she spends the rest
of the month working for Palm
Beach Community College.
Serving as the college's pro-
vost since Oct. 2005, Dr. Robinson
oversaw many achievements, in-
cluding the organization of North
America's first sugar technology
institute.


The sugar technology insti-
tute, touted as the first of its kind,
is aimed for prospective students
who want to learn about the
newest technologies that exist in
the sugar industry.
As previously reported, she
was honored last year by Suc-
cess South Florida Magazine as
one of the 25 most influential
and prominent African-American
women professionals of South
Florida.
Dr. Robinson believes the de-
velopment of the institute's con-
cept may be what garnered her
recognition from Success South


Florida Magazine.
"I have been very blessed in
my professional career," Dr. Rob-
inson said in the Jan. 17, 2008
edition of The Sun
"I am particularly honored to
have been chosen by my peers
for this distinguished award be-
cause I hope it will inspire young,
up and coming African-Amer-
ican women to keep their sight
on their goals," she continued.
"They should realize that all
things are possible with much
diligence and faith."


Closing the

the year 2008


A year in review for
the Glades area

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES Looking back, last
year was likely one that no one
will soon forget.
Here's a rundown of some
of the top events that occurred
during the last 12 months, in-
cluding last week:
Jan. 3, 2008
The State Attorney's Office
recently dropped the man-
slaughter charges against 19-
year-old Ernie Kirk Daley, Jr. in
connection with the deaths of
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office deputies Donta Manuel
and Jonathan Wallace.
According to Paul H. Zacks,
the chief assistant state at-
torney, the charges presented
by the PBSO were based on
preliminary information at the
scene which turned out to be
inaccurate.
Jan. 10, 2008
On Jan. 7, the Palm Beach
County Fire Rescue began its
availability of ambulance ser-
vices throughout the Glades
area:
According to Michael Arena,
the fire rescue's district bat-
talion chief, there will be full
emergency medical services
and transport throughout the
entire region.
Jan. 17, 2008


All Pahokee Vice-Mayor
Henry Crawford needed was a
majority vote for the termina-
tion of Lillie J. Latimore, the city
manager.
The Jan. 8 commission
meeting came to a very ugly
conclusion, with then Vice-
Mayor Crawford and then-
Mayor J.P. Sasser engaging in a
heated exchange of words.
Jan.24, 2008
At the Jan. 15 commission
meeting, the South Bay com-
missioners voted to select Lo-
max Harrelle as its city man-
ager.
"Mr. Lomax Harrelle knows
everything about the city,"
Commissioner John Wilson
said.
Jan. 31, 2008
For the Glades Central Raid-
ers football program, a chapter
in its storied history has just
closed.
Beginning Feb. 1, another
one is about to begin. On Jan.
17, Willie Snead, the Raiders
head football coach, resigned
from his post.
Feb. 7, 2008
The biggest piece of the
Glades Central football puzzle
has just been filled in.
After whittling down all of
the potential candidates for the
coveted head coaching job,
Jessie Hester was simply the
best fit for the program.

Suspects are
caught on video but
Inot captured
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE A gas station
was robbed in the afternoon
hours of Dec. 30, the sheriff's
office said.
According to Sergeant Pete
Palenzuela, a spokesman for
the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office (PBSO), three indi-
viduals two women and one
man walked into the Quick


Stop Service gas station.
The facility is located at 300
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
While inside, the unidenti-
fied male reportedly grabbed
the store's cashier (also un-
identified) and attempted to
make him open the register.
Meanwhile, the two females
in question opened the door,
while another man, wearing a
stocking cap, entered the store,
Sgt. Palenzuela said.
Eventually, the suspects,
caught on video tape, report-
edly forced the cashier to open
the register.
All of the suspects fled with


money and lottery tickets, oth-
cials said.
No suspects have been iden-
tified at this time.
The incident reportedly took
place at about 4:05 p.m.
If anyone has pertinent infor-
mation leading up to the arrests
of the subjects, detectives from
the sheriff's office is encourag-
ing those who have knowledge
of it to call the PBSO at 688-
4000.
You can also contact Crime
Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.

record after a 7-2 start.
Seven of Clewiston's 11 losses
were critically painful, includ-
ing two losses each to Pahokee,
Glades Day and Glades Central.
For a team that boasted great
talent last season most of the key
players are back it was especially
disappointing, to say the least.
In all fairness, though, four of
last season's five starters were
sophomores, according to Willie
Lee, the head coach.
"We had a young team last
year," Lee said.
"We played against senior-
oriented teams last season, but
now I feel we have an advantage
because our kids are more expe-
rienced."
With this year's team, Lee is
hoping that a combination of
youth and experience will serve
them well come playoff time.
Considering the fact that Class
4A is up for. grabs this season Mi-
ami-Monsignor Pace is the two-
time defending state champions
- Lee expects his boys to be in the
mix.

School.
The clinic will be held from 9


ander capturing a l U- roaU vic-
tory against the Gators on Dec. 9.
To do that, however, the coach-
ing staff and the players must dis-
play a fluid chemistry that was, at
best, questionable in several key
games last season.
Clewiston has the players and
the coach to make a run at win-
ning the. District 11-4A tourna-
ment next month.
The District 11-4A teams con-
sist of South Fort Myers, Estero,
LaBelle, Riverdale, Lemon Bay,
Gateway Charter and Cypress
Lake.
If Clewiston defeats Estero in
its home game tonight, which
begins at 7 p.m., they will finish
the regular season at 5-2 in its dis-
trict.
With losses to South Fort My-
ers and Cypress Lake, Clewiston
may have to face one of these
two teams in next month's district
tournament.
In order to make it to the Class
4A regional playoffs, the Tigers
must at least make it to the cham-
pionship round.
Clewiston failed to do after


a.m. until 12:30 p.m. on Saturday,
Jan. 17 at Glades Day School in
Belle Glade.
Florida Gulf Coast University
Head Coach Dave Deiros and se-
lect members of the FGCU 2009
soRball team will be partnering
with Gator Head Coach Sherri
Paez to present this fun and infor-
mative sports clinic.
Participants looking to im-


control Ile em L eac]/U gIupinllle
they play in, as well as displaying
a sense of overall discipline on
the court.
"I'll put my chances with any
Class 4A team in the state", Lee
said.
"In my opinion, we're still a
year away, but we can be as good
as we want to be."
The Tigers certainly has played
to its strengths thus far, as they
reached the finals of the Mariner
Pre-Christmas Holiday Tourna-
ment, held in Fort Myers from
Dec. 20-23.
Though Clewiston lost in the
Dec. 23 championship game to
Mariner, 67-51, something good
came out of the experience.
Not only were junior guard
Hurley Johnson and freshman
center Darius Redd named to the
all-tournament team, the entire
squad gained a new sense of con-
fidence heading into January.
"I love this team and I hope
we're going to have a successful
season," Lee said.
Barring a rash of injuries,
which Lee realizes can happen


prove their overall skills in fielding
and hitting should attend this spe-
cial event.
The cost of the clinic is $50.00
and early registration is required.
Registration forms can be
picked up or faxed by contact-
ing Coach Paez at (561) 996-6769

ments get posted faster and not all phone calls can

discussions currently taking place. Thanks for participating!
COMMUNITY IN NEED OF A CHANGE: Anyone who lives in the
Glades knows life is better in Clewiston than it is in South Bay, Belle
Glade or Pahokee. With the way the Commissions in those towns run
things it is a miracle that the towns even exist. All they do is nothing
and want to get paid for doing it. The buildings and streets are run-
down, filthy and deteriorated beyond any reasonable doubt. Business-
es don't want to invest in this area because it costs more than they can
make to replace all the stolen goods and equipment, it just isn't worth
it. Something has got to be done to change things in these towns if
only everyone would just take a minute to stop and pick up a piece
of trash everyday, things could change. If you called your neighbor
and asked if they needed help to clean up their yard or house; If the
church preacher would get out of the churches and organize volun-
teers to help cleanup the streets every week; If everyone would shop
at home maybe more businesses would open; If everyone stopped
whining about how difficult life is and did something everyday that
helped. Maybe then we could turn our little towns around. I'm pray-
ing that I will live long enough .to see it. Back to the focus of code
enforcement. There are ways to positively enforce the laws without
hammering people in their empty pocketbooks, just so you can take
everything they have earned and put them out of their houses. Positive
enforcement would mean that someone would have actually sit down
with the property owner and find out what was causing the nuisance
and come up with a plan to resolve it amicable. Money isn't the an-
swer to everything. Even the banks in these small communities could
help. They could build small affordable homes and finance them at af-
fordable rates and maybe even assist the new owners with educating
them on what they need to do to maintain their homes. This would
really help our community get back on track.
TOO MUCH TRASH: At least you have code enforcement. My
family moved to Clewiston because Pahokee has become a cesspool
of trash on the streets, buildings falling to pieces and a commission
which is either incapable or not willing to do something about it. I am
ashamed to say that I pushed the Mayor to run. What a mistake. His
ego has put the city at risk. We do not have adequate law enforcement
nor do we have anyone in the city hall that gives any thought to the
fact that the city is dead. No new businesses nor are there any of the
projects finished that were started, before the new people took office.
Pahokee just sits around and points fingers and does nothing for the
community. The Mayor hated the marina, did not like the old high
school and sure doesn't like the fact that he has to face four commis-
sioners every other Tuesday. I wish Belle Glade all the success in the
world. You are leaving the other two cities in the dust. If I can sell my
house then I will be rid of Pahokee. I even changed churches because
of the egotistical behavior of the Mayor and his group of buddies.

Recycling for Fire
Rescue practice
Members of Palm Beach
County Fire Rescue Station 73 in
Belle Glade recently showed their
appreciation to the staff of DBI
Services Corporation by present-
ing them with two plaques, one
for project manager Michael Hot-
tinger and the other for. the com-
pany's staff.
DBI has allowed Fire Rescue to
use damaged guardrails and sup-
port components from the area's
state roads for cutting practice.
"This type of practice is not only
invaluable to our members, but
also very hard to come by," says
District Chief Curtis Rice. "In addi-
tion to practice for our members,
DBI allowed the equipment com-
mittee to use these damaged parts
to evaluate diamond tipped saw
blades to be used on our saws
during emergency operations."
DBI has a contract with the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation and is responsible for
maintaining the state roads within
Florida.

Summer's just around
the corner
Now that Christmas is behind
us, it's time to think about. Sum-
mer Camp!
While many families look
forward to exciting summer va-
cations, low-income parents an-
ticipate summer with concerns
about finding affordable child
care. Palm Beach County's Hu-
man Services division offers an
option for many of these strug-
gling families.
The department's summer
camp scholarship program pro-
vides full tuition and fees for the
entire summer for families with
incomes 25% more than Federal
Poverty Guidelines or lower. For
example, a family of four earning
$26,500 or less can qualify.
Parents have peace of mind to
work or attend training, knowing
that their children are safe and
well cared for. Children enjoy
educational and recreational op-
portunities for growth.
"We are giving priority to
working parents and homeless
families," says program coordina-
tor Maria Watson. Qualifying par-
ents may make an appointment
to complete an application at the


Human Services office in Belle
Glade. Application appointments
will be held Jan. 12 through Feb.
27. For information or to sched-
ule an appointment, call 561-996-
1630.

Unity in the
community
This is the theme of the 2009
Resident Education to Action

ticipants learn to make meaning-
ful decisions about the future of
their neighborhoods.

ernment works and what com-
munity resources and services

gin Thursday, Jan. 22 and will be

mation call 561-233-5311.

No dry cleaning
required
Recently, for the first time in
nearly seven years of Glades liv-
ing, I accidentally wore a "dry
clean only" dress. I debated toss-
ing it into the washing machine
and taking my chances might
still do so but I went online to
find a dry cleaners, just in case.
I can count on one hand the
number of dry cleaners I found
from Canal Point to Clewiston.
Literally. Five.
Life in the Glades: no dry
cleaning required. Gotta love it!

Cleaning Ladies
The Church of the Harvest has
a cleaning service for hire! The
funds derived from this service
support the residential services of
Grace Abounds Program (G.A.P.)
G.A.P. helps the homeless and
abused women.

Milk income loss contract program


USDA's Farm Service Agncy
(FSA) announced that sign) for
the Milk Income Loss Ccitract
Program (MILC) has begil and
will continue through tji pro-
gram's expiration date, eptem-
ber 30, 2012.
The 2008 Farm Bill rduthoriz-
es the MILC Program, vhich op-
erates similarly to the ounter-cy-
clical payment prograll for crops,
and makes three keychanges in
program operation.
Under the 2008 At, the MILC
payment rate and t;e per-opera-
tion poundage limtire modified,
depending on whl the milk is
produced. In addcibn, a "feed
cost adjuster," is.iitroduced over
the file of the 208 Act, which
adjusts the $16.9' per hundred-
weight (cwt.) benchmark price
upward depending on the cost of
feed rations. I
When available, MILC pay-
ments are based on a payment
rate percentage !hat is multiplied
by the difference between a now-
flexible target ($16.94 per cwt. or
higher) and the specific month's
Boston Class I price of milk. US-
DA's Commodity Credit Corpora-
tion (CCC) issues MILC payments
on an operation-by-operation ba-
sis up to a maximum of 2.4 mil-
lion pounds of milk produced and
marketed (about 120 cows) from
October 1, 2007 through Septem-
ber 30, 2008.
The production limit per op-
eration increases to 2.985 million
pounds (about 145 cows) for
each fiscal year from October 1,
2008 through August 31, 2012.
The production limitation reverts
back to the original limit of 2.4
million pounds per fiscal year in
September 2012. The 2008 Act
adjusts the trigger price of $16.94
cwt., depending on the extent to
which feed costs increase.


The feed cost adjustment takes
effect when the monthly Na-
tional Average Dairy Feed Ration
Cost (calculated from the "entire
month" prices published by the
National Agricultural Statistics
Service) is greater than $7.35 per
cwt. beginning January 1, 2008
through August 31, 2012.
Calculations from January 1,
2008 through August 31, 2012 will
be made at 45 percent of thie per-
centage that the National Average
Dairy Feed Ration Cost exceeds
$7.35 per cwt. Beginning with Fis-
cal Year 2009 marketing', which
started October 1, 2008 the 2008
Act made changes to the provi-
sion for payment eligibility to add
an adjusted gross income (AGI)
limit.
If the individual or entity has
annual non-farm AGI for the rel-
evant base period greater than
$500,000, the individual or entity
is not eligible for MILC benefits.
The base period will be set pur-
suant to AGI regulations yet to be
issued. That rule will also define
what is considered to be non-
farm income.


During the signup application
period, participating dairy opera-
tions must select the month of the
fiscal year to start receiving pay-
ments for eligible production.
Producers submitting a con-
tract application within 30 days of
the beginning of the application
period can select any preceding
month as the start month. Produc-
ers submitting contract applica-
tions after January 21, 2009, will
not have the option of selecting
an earlier month as the payment
start month for the dairy opera-
tion for a fiscal year; and will be
limited to applicable start month
selection rules.
Those general rules are that
the start month must either be
the month the contract is submit-
ted or some later month. Changes
in the month may be made from
year to year so long as the desig-
nation is made by the fourteenth
of the month proceeding the new
start month.
Pound limits run from the start
month and all pounds for which
payment is received count against
the limit for that fiscal year. Eli-

The continued story of



the Mayamis Nation


Treasures at Fort
Center

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Dark, ominous clouds brewed
and rumbled ofi the horizon, until
the tempest exploded in a brilliant
and thunderous barrage.
Gusting winds swept across
the lake, churning the shallow
depths into a cauldron of seeth-
ing, grey waves that danced along
the surface in deadly duets before
striking the three dugouts with a
fury.
In timeless minutes, the storm
passed as quickly as it came. The
sun reappeared sheepishly on the
horizon, radiating light across the
darkened heavens and upon the
lake's surface.
Gold and silver treasures lying
in the wet dugouts glittered to the
sun's caress, as two dejected fig-
ures sat impassive to the wealth
around them.
One wore finely tailored cloths
and was a goldsmith, a talent that
had brought wealth and fortune
into his life and would now bring
a life of enslavement. ,
The other person was dressed
as a Spanish mariner, whose face
was weathered by years at the
mast on a slave ship, a curse that
would follow the mariner to the
grave. This story has a merit of
truth. Gold and silver were found
at Fort Center and a mystery man
of Spanish origin left his calling
card there.
It's time to take a "Walk in The
Past" and learn about the trea-
sures and mystery man at Fort
Center.
Fontanedo, a Spanish slave to
the Calusa Indians, wrote in his
memoirs, "The King of Ais and
the King of Jeaga are poor Indi-
ans, as respects the land; for there
are no mines of silver or of gold
where they are; and, in short; they
are rich only by the sea, from the
many vessels that have been lost
well laden with these metals."
Later in his memoirs he writes,
"Leaving this matter aside, I de-
sire to speak of the riches found
by the Indians of Ais, which per-
haps were as much as a million
dollars, or over, in bars of silver,
in gold, and in articles of jewelry


made by the hands of Mexican In-
dians, which the passengers were
bringing with them. These things
Carlos divided with the caciques
of Ais, Gaucata, Mayajuaco, and
Mayaca."
Fontanedo describes Guaca-
ta as a, town on the Lake of the
Mayaimis Indians.
Archeologists think Guacata
was on the eastern side of Lake
Okeechobee and are basing that
educated guess on other clues
found in Fontanedo's memoirs.
Simply stated, gold and silver
were brought to Lake Okeecho-
bee and given to the cacique
(chief) at Guacata.
Gold and silver have been
found throughout the Glades re-
gion. I believe there were other
deliveries of gold treasures to
the Mayaimis Indians on Lake
Okeechobee, before and after
Fontanedo was ransomed and
wrote his memoirs in 1575. One
of the largest, Spanish treasure
fleets assembled was destroyed
in a hurricane in 1715 on the Trea-
sure Coast.
An amateur organization se-
cured permission from the for-
mer land owners of Fort Center to
"survey" a mound site. The land
owners were unhappy with the
resulting "survey" and cancelled
permission to continue work at
the site. A collection of gold and
silver artifacts found by the orga-
nization were recovered by the
land owners, who later made
them available for study at dif-
ferent times to Florida archeolo-
gists.
The gold and silver specimens
were of Spanish origin, but most
had been reworked into Indian
forms. Some of the objects had
been cast and the rough edges
smoothed with coarse files. Ar-
cheologist, Mr. Sears, suggested
that the gold and silver were done
by Spaniards, who were following
Indian directions as they melted
and formed the gold and silver.
The suggestion they were fol-
lowing directions could probably
be better interpreted as slaves fol-
lowing orders.
Lawrence E. Will, the noted
Lake Okeechobee historian,
writes about a clam shell found
in a Fort Center mound. Mr. Wills
said a curios letter had been writ-
ten on both sides of the clam


shell. A scratched line going to a
circle with an "X" and the word
Rio, for river was found on the
first shell. An etched cross gave
directions NORT, for north and
ESTE, for east on the shell.
A large Christian cross was
scratched on the second shell with
the letters, XX XX + LA etched
below. Archaeologists think the
LA stands for leagues and the X's
mean 40 plus. A Spanish league at
that time was approximately 2.5
miles, so that would put Fort Cen-
ter about 90 miles from where?
The second shell had the
name Calos scratched on it. Calos
was a Calusa town on the West
coast. The person who wrote
this information was educated
and knew distance. He created a
map and was hoping it would be
traded and found by a Spanish ex-
pedition. We will never know this
mystery man, but it is clear that
the sender never got a reply until
the 19th century.
There will be more Tall Tales
about the Mayaimis Indian Gold
at Fort Center in next week's edi-
tion of "A Walk in The Past." This
Fort Center article can come alive

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.

Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission
"Nature deficit disorder" is
a growing concern, but a new
initiative of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) and others endeavors
to make the problem obsolete.
Coined by Richard Louv in the
book Last Child in the Woods,
nature deficit disorder refers to
the growing disconnect between
people and the outdoors.
To address these concerns
over the disconnect, the "Get Out-
doors Florida!" coalition is bring-
ing together highly energized
staff from state and federal con-
servation and land-management
agencies, state and county health
organizations, non-government
organizations dealing with youth,
conservation education or health
organizations, universities, and
commercial businesses. The
coalition's mission is "Engaging
communities, families and indi-
viduals in outdoor experiences
to achieve healthier lifestyles and
sustain Florida's natural resourc-
es."
The Centers for Disease Con-


creating risks for heart disease,
diabetes, respiratory problems
and more. Meanwhile, daily par-
ticipation in school physical edu-
cation programs dropped from 42
percent in 1991 to 33 percent in
2005. Studies also demonstrate
that children between the ages of
8 and 18 spend an average of 6.5
hours per day with electronic me-
dia. For young kids, every hour of
extra TV increases the likelihood
of their developing attention-defi-
cit, hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
by age 7, by 10 percent. Remain-
ing in modern, sealed buildings all
day also increases the prevalence
of allergies and asthma because
of molds, mildews and allergens
that aren't "aired out."
Many parents want their kids
away from the electronic babysit-
ters the television, DVDs, iPods,
Nintendos and instead want
them engaged in play outside.
Not all of those kids may realize
it, but they may be wishing for the
same thing.
If just the joy of getting out-
doors for some creative free play
and recreation isn't enough, re-
search shows there are many


engage in outdoor activities.
Studies have clearly demon-
strated that children who spend
time outdoors perform better
academically, play more cre-
atively, have less stress, and are
more imaginative. In addition,
they experience fewer symptoms
of ADHD, have healthier immune
systems and develop a greater re-
spect for themselves, others and
nature than do their peers who do
not recreate outside.
These connections with na-
ture address not only health and
education issues but also societal
issues, such as sustaining fish,
wildlife and their habitats in the
face of unprecedented develop-
ment.
Many of the groups and indi-
viduals most excited about the
coalition have been actively cre-
ating programs to get Floridians
back to nature. The "Get Out-
doors Florida!" coalition provides
an opportunity to bring these
dissonant efforts together to be
more productive. One of the-first
efforts by the coalition will be to
seek the support of Florida's state
government.


federal, state and local levels have
emerged in response to the defi-
cit of nature experiences citizens
are suffering. From Connecticut's
"No Child Left Inside" to Califor-
nia's "Children's Outdoor Bill of
Health," state programs are bud-
ding with the hope of rekindling
a relationship between their resi-
dents especially the children
- and the land. Awaeness of
the problem and calls-to-action
are sweeping the nation because
society feels the urgent need to
address these health, societal and
conservation issues at their roots.

Palm Beach Community Col-
lege has been approved by the
region's higher education ac-
creditation agency to launch its
first bachelor's degree program
starting in Fall 2009.
The Commission on Colleges
of the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools (SACS) ap-
proved PBCC's application for a
level status change at its annual
meeting Tuesday in San Antonio.
The SACS action raises PBCC to a
Level II institution, allowing the
College to offer the new bacca-
laureate degree in addition to its
current associate degrees, college
credit certificates and career train-
ing programs. The State Board of
Education had approved the Col-
lege's proposal to offer a Bach-
elor of Applied Science (B.A.S.)
degree in Supervision and Man-
agement last February.
"As a Level II institution, Palm
Beach Community College will
provide even greater educational
opportunities, and will help to
meet the need for managerial
personnel with higher education
credentials ," said Dr. Dennis P.
Gallon, PBCC president: "Stu-
dents who earn associate degrees
to enter the workforce now will
be able to continue their educa-
tion to advance in their chosen
fields."
Dr. Sharon Sass, PBCC vice
president for academic affairs,
said the College has received nu-


merous inquiries from prospec-
tive students since plans for the
B.A.S. were announced. "There is
tremendous excitement that this
degree is coming," she said.
"We are hearing from many
people who thought a bachelor's
degree was out of their reach.
They are thrilled to know that
they can enroll in an affordable,
accessible program tailor made
to fit their needs."
The first B.A.S. in Supervision
and Management degree offered
by a Palm Beach County institu-
tion, the new degree program
features specialization tracks in
business, health and public safety
administration. Applications will
be accepted beginning in Janu-
ary. 2009. For more information
on the B.A.S. degree and applica-
tion procedures, visit the Web at

lege, Florida's first public commu-
nity college, is celebrating its 75th

Corps gets an 'A+


Courtesy photo
Whether it's playing hide and seek outdoors, exploring a trail or going fishing, time spent outdoors provides big benefits to
youth.


The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers became the largest federal
agei.y, in terms of property, to
receive an unqualified opinion -
or clean bill of financial health -
from the Department of Defense
Office of Inspector General (Do-
DIG) for their civil works financial
statements during fiscal 2008. The
decision also makes the Corps the
first major DoD agency to receive
such a rating.
This score is the equivalent of
an audit A+, according to Wes
Miller, the Corps' Chief Financial
Officer.
"This audit verifies that we are
an organization with people with
honor and integrity: we do what
we say, and say what we do," said
Lt. Gen. Robert L. Van Antwerp,
the chief of engineers. "It stands
as proof positive that we have
been good stewards of the tax-
payer's money and are able to ac-
count for every dollar entrusted to
us by the American public."


The audit, which was con-
ducted by DoDIG and their inde-
pendent public accounting firm,
PriceWaterhouseCoopers, ren-
dered an unqualified opinion on
Nov. 17, saying that the Corps'"
financial statements are fairly stat-
ed in all material respects.
Auditors conducted the review
between April and November,
and examined all financial trans-
actions that occurred during fiscal
2008, equaling $40 billion in total
assets.
The Corps' civil works mission
is to provide quality, responsive
engineering services to the nation
during peace and war. The civil
works programs include water
resource development activities
such as flood control, navigation,
recreation, and infrastructure,
plus environmental stewardship
and emergency response.


It Must be Love.

It Must be Hospice.

provided me with the motivation to live
each day to the fullest. Life has become so
much more meaningful every moment."

WEST PALM BEACH-While
campaigning this year, Palm
Beach County Sheriff Ric Brad-
shaw made a commitment to the
residents of the Glades: to give
back at least fifty-percent of the
funds raised from his re-election
campaign in the community back
to the people.
Sheriff Bradshaw recently
made good on his promise by
presenting a $5,000 gift to Glades
Healthcare Foundation, the non-
profit organization leading the
fund raising campaign for a new
community hospital that will
serve 40,000 residents along the


southern shore of Lake Okeecho-
bee.
The new facility, Palm Beach
County's only public hospital, will
replace Glades General Hospital.
Sheriff Bradshaw is proud of
the link he has had to the Glades
region for over thirty years.
His brother was a state trooper
in the Pahokee area.
"My connection to the Glades
community is strong," said Sheriff
Bradshaw. "Our work is to en-
sure that the quality of life for all
of the people in our county is the
best it can be, and healthcare is a
big part of that."

Secretary Schafer


Announces 2009 DCP Signup


Enrollment for the 2009 Di-
rect and Counter-cyclical Pay-
ment (DCP) Program for farms
with base acres are taking place
now both online and at local
USDA Service Centers and will
continue until June 1.
Producers are urged to make
use of the eDCP automated web-
site to sign up; however, produc-
ers can visit any USDA Service
Center or their administratively
assigned center to complete their
2009 DCP contract.
The June 1 deadline is man-
datory for all participants. USDA
will not accept any late-filed ap-
plications.
The electronic DCP (or eDCP)
service saves producers time,
reduces paperwork and speeds
up contract processing at USDA
Farm Service Agency (FSA) offi-
cers. It is available to all produc-
ers who are eligible to participate
in the DCP program and can be
accessed at http://www.fsa.usda.
gov/dcp.
To access the service, produc-
ers must have an active USDA
eAuthentication Level 2 account,
which requires filling out an on-
line registration form at http://
www.eauth.egov.usda.gov fol-
lowed by a visit to the local
USDA Service Center for identity
verification.
USDA computes DCP Pro-
gram payments using base acres
and payment yields established
for each farm. Eligible producers
receive direct payments at rates
established by statute regardless
of market prices.


For 2009, eligible producers
may request to receive advance
direct payments based on 22
percent of the direct payment
for each commodity associated
with the farm. USDA will issue
advance direct payments begin-
ning Dec. 2008.
Counter-cyclical payment
rates vary depending on mar-
ket prices. Counter-cyclical pay-
ments are issued only when the
effective price for a commodity is
below its target price.
The effective price for each
covered commodity and peanuts
equals the direct payment rate
plus the higher of the national
average market price received
by farmers during the 12-month
marketing year or the national
average loan rate.
Producers who are eligible
for the DCP Program will also be
eligible to enroll in the Average
Crop Revenue Election (ACRE)
Program. The enrollment period
for ACRE Program will begin in
the spring.
Producers may first enroll in
the DCP Program, elect to re-
ceive advance direct payments
and then later modify their en-
rollment to include the ACRE
program or they may wait and
elect to enroll in DCP and ACRE
at the same time in the spring
2009.
The optional ACRE Program
provides a safety net based on
State revenue losses and acts in
place of the price-based safety
net of county-cyclical payments
under DCP. A farm's payment is


based on a revenue guarantee
calculated using a 5-year average
state yield and the most recent
2-year national price for each
eligible commodity. For the 2009
crop, the 2-year price average
will be based on the 2007 and
2008 crop years.
An ACRE payment is issued
when both the State and the
farm have incurred a revenue
loss. The payment is based on
83.3 percent (85 percent in 2012)
of the farm's planted acres times
the difference between the State
ACRE guarantee and the State
revenue time the ratio of the
farm's yield divided by the State
expected yield.
The total number of planted
acres for which a producer may
receive ACRE payments may
not exceed the total base on the
farm.
In exchange for participating
in ACRE, in addition to not receiv-
ing counter-cyclical payments, a
farm's direct payment is reduced
by 20 percent, and marketing as-
sistance loan rates are reduced
by 30 percent.
The decision to enroll in the
ACRE Program is irrevocable.
The owner of the farm and all
producers on the farm must
agree to enroll in ACRE. Once
enrolled, the farm shall be en-
rolled for that initial crop year
and will remain in ACRE through
the 2012 crop year.

with a check for $100,000.
In 2006, the First Bank of
Clewiston made an initial pledge
of $500,000 to the HRMC Founda-
tion; this was First Bank's third gift
towards that pledge. The funds
will be restricted to the construc-
tion of the new emergency room,
surgery suite and laboratory at


Hendry Regional Medical Center.
Though global financial lend-
ing opportunities have greatly
affected the ability to borrow,
the Foundation and the Hospital
Board of Authority are committed
to moving forward with the emer-
gency room construction project.
At their September board meet-
ing, the hospital board of direc-
tors selected and hired DEJA (Da-
vid E. Johnson Architect) firm to
design the new emergency room,
surgery suite, and laboratory. This
firm will work under the direction
of John Albert from American
Health Facilities Development
(AHFD), the project management


firm hired to oversee the con-
struction development. DEJA has
begun the preliminary develop-
ment of architectural schematics.
In the meantime, Hospital Admin-
istration is diligently negotiating
with lenders for the financing of
the new facility, which will cost
approximately 17 million dollars.
Once financial negotiations are
completed, the architectural de-
sign and engineering plans will
be submitted to the State for ap-
proval.
The hospital foundation mem-
bers wish to thank First Bank for
their wonderful generosity and
continued support.

Like the Lark: Realizing our Potential


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
"In the beginning was the
Word, and the Word was with
God, and the Word was God.
He was with God in the begin-
ning. Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was
made that has been made -- to all
who received Him, to those who
believed in His name, He gave the
right to become children of God,
children born not of natural de-
scent, nor of human decision or a
husband's will, but born of God."
This prologue to John is fo-
cused not on what we have been,
or even what we are now.
Rather it focuses on what we
can yet be. A great thought now
that we have entered into the new


New Year

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
John was a retired military of-
ficer He'd tell me each Sunday
morning "You started two min-
utes late today" or "You began
a minute early this morning." I
asked him how he was certain
and he said he set his watch by the
radio. One day I asked him "John,
how old is this outfit 2,000 years
old?" And he muttered "Yeah." I
said "Remember, John, for the
first fourteen hundred years, they
didn't have clocks!" (I thought
"outfit" would be a good word to
refer to the Church for a military
man. He knew what I was talking
about.)
Actually, we conduct our lives
to the arbitrary agreement we call
"time" and it is the meafis that
makes living possible. We rely on
appointments, the ordering of our
days, regular times for the things
we have to do. The great things,
though, are what we recall, not
in hours or days but by events.
I'd have to think what I was do-
ing in the Fall of 1963, but if you
asked me where I was when Ken-
nedy was shot, I could tell you
instantly.

year!
There was a young man pedal-
ing around a college campus on
a bicycle.
He was wearing a T-shirt. On
the T-shirt it said, "I'm going to be
a doctor."
There was also a sign on the
back of his bicycle. It proclaimed:
"I'm going to be a Mercedes."
There was someone who un-
derstood his potential. All of us
have unrealized potential.
When each of us came into
this world, we brought with us an
amazing amount of potential.
The Suzuki method that has
helped millions of children learn
to play the violin is an example of
realizing some of this potential.
Suzuki shared that he had two

moments in his life that gave him
his insights.
Suzuki's first revelation came
when he was visiting a building
that served as a giant incubator
for thousands of Japanese song-
birds known as larks. The breed-
ers of these larks take literally
thousands of eggs and incubate
them in giant, warm, silent halls
that act as a gigantic nest.
There is only one sound that
the tiny songbirds hear as they
break through the shells of their
eggs. It is the sound of another
lark, a very special adult lark, that
is chosen because of its singing
ability.
Suzuki noticed to his amaze-
ment that every little chick that
hatched automatically began to

copy the master singer lark.
Even more remarkable, after
a few days he observed that each
chick, having started out by purely
copying songs, began to develop
its own variations on the original
Master Song.
The breeders wait until the
chick musicians have developed
their own styles, and then select
from them the next Master Singer,
and so the process continues.
Suzuki's reasoning: "If a bird's
tiny, tiny brain can learn so per-
fectly, then surely the human
brain, with its vastly superior
abilities, should be able to do the
same and better!"
This line of reasoning led Su-
zuki to his next revelation: "Every
Japanese child learns to speak


Japanese!"
It seems like an amazing grasp
of the obvious, but what Suzuki
had realized was something so
apparent no one could see what
it meant.
Any baby, born in any country,
automatically learns, within two
years, the language of that coun-
try..
This means that every normal
baby's brain is capable of learning
millions of potential languages.
This means, that given the
proper environment, the human
creature is capable of acquiring
an amazing amount of informa-
tion and skills in a short time.
God has placed within each
of us enormous potential, mental
potential, physical potential, but


the greatest of all is spiritual po-
tential, the potential to become
children of God.
Notice, the Scriptures don't say
that Christ came into the world so
that we can improve our I.Q. or
that we will be able to run the 440
in record time.
It says that whoever receives
Christ and believes on His name
has the potential to become a
child of God.
What does that mean?
It means that you and I have
the potential to be like Christ.
We have a potential within our
hearts and souls for peace, a po-
tential for joy, a potential for hope,
a potential for love, and a poten-
tial for forgiveness that is greater
than we can possibly imagine.


The true, the Eternal now


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
The New Year Holiday is chiefly
a secular one, merely the starting
date for a calendar set up by man
for his own convenience.
But as a milestone in a life
given to us by a loving Father, the
day is one that is well deserving of
prayer meditation and thought.
There is nothing really new
about the New Year we were on
January 1st what we were on De-
cember 31st. For each person, the
character of our life on any given
day is the sum total of our yester-
days with one important quali-
fication: At any given moment,
with God's help, we can change
direction, steer, rather than drift.
Are we defeated by past mis-
takes haunted by past failures? If
we dwell on them, we will repeat
them.
Are we convinced that these
failures were the fault of others? If
so, there will be little or no incen-
tive to take personal inventory, to
look within for the source of our
difficulty.
But what if we refuse to hold
memories of past mistakes in our
consciousness? ,


What if we recognize and act
on the truth that right now we
can start afresh? And it is true if
only we turn to Him for guid-
ance.
Right now we are the sons of
God, if we have believed the Gos-
pel, Repented of Sins, Confessed
faith in Jesus Christ, and have
been immersed for the remission
of sins to receive the Holy Spirit.
Galatians 3:27 says "For as
many of you as have been bap-
tized into Christ have put on
Christ." He is our genuine spiri-
tual identity.
We have only to claim what
He has already freely given us.
On New Year's Day or any other
day we can decide to live NOW,
rather than in a dead yesterday or
an uncertain tomorrow!
And when we do, we will see
that His genuine, eternal vow is
all we ever have or need.
Some are asking themselves,
"How can I be a triumphant
Christian in this New Year. The
converted sinner loves God and
is resolved to live for God. But he
soon realizes that there are con-
flicts. We have an adversary, Sa-
tan, who seeks constantly to side-
track us and defeat us. We can
overcome him and be victorious


each day if we will. Here's how:
1.Yield to the Lordship of
Christ. This is what discipleship
is, to follow Him as Master of our
lives.
2.Pray! This is communion
with God. In this way the Lord can
impart to us wisdom and strength,
and provide all our needs.
3.Read God's Word every day.
My wife and I read the "Everyday
With Jesus" Bible each morning
that takes one through the Bible
in a year. The Bible gives us light
and direction. Obey its precepts
and trust its promises.
4.Have fellowship with God's
people. Align yourself with a
church which believes and teach-
es the word of God and is not a
denomination.
5.Be filled with the Holy Spirit.
In proportion as we yield our-
selves unto Him, He will fill us
with God's love and power and
all the fruits of the Spirit.
6.Witness to others. Share the
Good News with as many possi-
ble. Romans 1:16 says: "The Gos-
pel is the power of God unto to
salvation to those who believe."
7.Watch for the return of
Christ for "the coming of the Lord
draweth nigh" (James 5:8).

It has been nothing short of
an amazing season thus far for
"dwin James, the Glades Central
Raiders boys basketball coach.
On Saturday, Feb. 9, the first-
year coach led the Raiders to cap-
turing the District 14-4A champi-
onship after a convincing 67-43
victory over Santaluces.
Feb. 21,2008
The cities of Belle Glade, South
3ay and Pahokee are in a pivotal
state as election time rolls on for
March 11.
With at least two commis-
sioner seats up for grabs in each
city, the landscape of city govern-
ment can change, for better or for
worse.
Feb. 28, 2008
An emergency landing was
made on Feb. 20 by a single en-
gine fix wing plane in a sugar
cane field near U.S. Highway 98.
Richard Krajicek, the 78-year-
old pilot of the plane who is from
Houston, suffered no injuries as a
result.
Mar. 6, 2008
During a Feb. 26 Pahokee com-
mission meeting, it was revealed
hat criminal activity for 2007 de-
creased by 10.5 percent, accord-
ing to the Fla. Department of Law
enforcement .
Mar. 13, 2008
The area's March 11 election
results are in and its citizens have
clearly spoken.
Pahokee's J.P. Sasser and Belle
Glade's Donald Garrett both lost
heir mayoral seats in stunning
fashionn to Wayne Whitaker and
Steve Wilson, respectively.
Mar. 20, 2008
The Citizen Observer Patrol
(COP) program is now ready and
on the move.
"We are not law enforcement
officers, we're only observers,"
said Frantz Gaudard, a COP vol-
unteer.
Mar. 27, 2008
"This is a night I never visu-
alized coming," said outgoing
South Bay mayor Clarence Antho-
ny during the Mar. 18 commission
meeting.
Neither did many local resi-
dents, who will now be without
its legendary mayor after 24 years
at the helm.
Apr. 3, 2008
The nameplate and dais of
Former Pahokee mayor J.P. Sass-
er was robbed after the Mar. 1.7
swearing-in of Wayne Whitaker.
It was discovered that Alvis Da-
vis, a former city mayor who held
he position in the mid-1980's,
allegedly stole the items in ques-
ion.

Apr. 10, 2008
On Apr. 7, Steve Wilson was
selected by the majority of the city
commissioners to become Belle
Glade's new mayor.
Apr. 17, 2008
In many cases, there's no place
like home.
On Apr. 12, Pahokee native
and Arizona Cardinals wideout
Anquan Boldin hosted the fourth
annual Q-Fest, which featured a
host of celebrities for a series of
fun-filled festivities.
Apr. 24, 2008
One year later, an unsolved
murder continues to loom large
in the area.
The Palm Beach County Sher-
ff's Office (PBSO) held a news
conference on April 16 at the
3elle Glade Ice House, the site of
:he homicide of Carl J. Edwards.
May 1,2008
Effective today, Matthew Brock
will begin his duties as the new
city manager of Pahokee.
"He'll earn his keep, I think,"
said Pahokee Mayor Wayne Whi-
aker.

May 8, 2008
On May 1, the municipality of
Belle Glade connected on-line
with the Palm Beach County-Lake
Regional Water Treatment Plant.
"It's probably the single largest
impact on the city in the last 30
'ears," City Manager Bill Under-
wood said, beaming with a big
smile.

May 15, 2008
A life-saving experience is


something that the individuals in-
volved usually never forget.
B'ythablia Cherisme, a fresh-
nan from Pahokee Middle-Senior
-High School, received an emer-
gency appendix surgery, with the
melp of Dr. Yves Pierre-Louis.

May 22, 2008
The municipality of South Bay
s not in a good financial state, to
say the least.
Not having its own wastewater
jeatment plant is a major part of
:he city's problems right now, as


it currently depends on the city of
Belle Glade for its sewer services.

May 29, 2008
"We've let our patriotism go by
the wayside," said Larry Wright, a
United States Army veteran.
He's referring to the fact that
there were no flags posted in
honor of Memorial Day in Paho-
kee.
June 5, 2008
A 20-year-old man and a jani-
tor were arrested last week in
connection with a shooting that
took place on May 21.
Johnny J. Worthen, a 33-year-
old janitor at Glades Central High
School, allowed Kawaun Lamor-
ris Davis on school grounds in an
attempt to help the suspect elude
deputies, according to the sher-
iff's office.

June 12, 2008
Hurricane season is here and
there's no telling when the next
major storm may hit the Lake
Okeechobee area.
There hasn't been a hurricane
in two years not since Hurricane
Wilma hit the Glades area in 2005
but it's no time for residents to
get complacent.

June 19, 2008
Henry Crawford, a Pahokee
