Man shot in




shoulder at




Quick Stop


Suspect reportedly
eluded deputies,
who were in pursuit
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Quick Stop
gas station has been hit yet
again.
Exactly one week after the
business was robbed of money
and lottery ticket, a man was
shot.
According to the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO), two men engaged in
a verbal dispute during the eve-
ning hours of Jan. 7.
After the argument ensued,
an unidentified suspect report-
edly pulled out a semi-automat-
ic' handgun, shooting the un-
identified victim several times
in the shoulder area.
The victim reportedly left
the scene of the incident (300
block of Avenue E) in a vehicle
with friends, who took him to
Glades General Hospital.
*Officials said that. not long
after deputies responded to in-


vestigate the shooting, they sur-
rounded the area, searching for
the suspect.
It was revealed that the un-
identified suspect had suppos-
edly fled the scene on foot.
A perimeter was then as-
sembled, with K-9 and aviation
units assisting the road patrol in
pursuit, officials said.
Unfortunately for the depu-
ties, they were reportedly un-
able to locate the suspect after
searching the area for awhile..
It is not yet known at this
time whether or not the shoot-
ing was gang-related.
It was revealed that the vic-
tim's injuries were minor, with
the expectation that he would
be released from the hospital
the same evening.
After being interviewed by
detectives, the' victim was re-
portedly uncooperative in giv-
ing out detailed information
regarding the suspect and the
shooting.
At this time, officials have
only a limited amount of infor-
mation on the suspect.

Moment in the spotlight


Student media
darlings Weaver,
Boldin head for D.C.
this weekend
By Naji Tobias*
The Sun
CANAL POINT It's going to
be an incredible trip.
Those were Brian Zimmer-
man's words as he -prepares
for President-elect Barack
Obama's inauguration ceremo-
ny in Washington, D.C.
The events leading up to
it have been nothing short of
magnificent for Zimmerman
and-two of his media students,
Damon Weaver and Alysia Bol-
din.
Alysia, who's the younger
cousin of Pahokee native An-
quan. Boldin, is slated to be
the video camera girl for the
Obama inauguration ceremo-


nies, which will begin on Sun-
day, Jan. 18.
Though the Boldin family
will have another member ex-
periencing a claim to fame, it is
10-year-old Damon that will be
grabbing most of the attention.
The Canal Point Elementary
School reporter will forever be
remembered for telling Vice
President-elect Joe Biden in the
conclusion of his video inter-
view these words:
"You're now my homeboy,"
Damon told Biden, as the vid-
eo interview has experienced
more than 400,000 hits to date
on YouTube.
The fateful interview may
have taken place this past Oct.
2, but the student television re-
porter has also interviewed the
likes of Caroline Kennedy, U.S.
Representative Alcee Hastings
and a host of other congressio-
nal figures.
There's a possibility that Da-


mon may even get to interview
the next U.S. president as well.
"The kids keep asking Da-
mon if he was going to inter-
view Obama," Zimmernian
said.
"He said he'd like to, so we
made it a point to go to the in-
auguration," he continued.
In actuality, it's already been
done in a sense, as crews from
the ABC evening news telecast
20/20 came to Canal Point .El-
ementary last Friday (Jan. 9).
A day in Damon's life
Producers of the highly-rat-
ed show interviewed Damon,
Zimmerman and Canal Point
Elementary School principal
LaVoise Smith about .such top-
ics like the inauguration trip,
the video interview with Biden
and other past political events
attended..

MLK parade



on Monday


Theme is entitled
'Celebrating the
Dream'
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr. Day couldn't
come at a better time this year.
With the presidential inau-
guration of Barack Obama just
one.day later (Jan. 20), there's
much to get excited about in
the Glades.
One event that will be con-
vening on Monday, Jan. 19 is
the annual Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr. Day parade, which
usually results in a sizeable
turnout.


Annette Parchment, the pa-
rade organizer for this year, was
briefly at a loss of words before
being able to explain the im-
portance of the occasion.
"We are actually now cele-
brating Dr. Martin Luther King's
dream," Parchment said.
"It is so important that all
three municipalities (Belle
Glade, Pahokee and South Bay).
come together and take part in
this time of history," she contin-
ued.
"The day after the event,
we'll be entering a historic mo-
ment that no one will soon for-
get."
Fittingly, the theme for this
year's event is entitled 'Cel-

South Bay landmark falls


Officials claim that
keeping it
could have been
hazardous

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY A landmark
in this small city, dubbed as the
Crossroads of South Florida,
has been officially taken down.
An antiquated water tower,
deemed inoperable by city of-
ficials, was removed as of Mon-
day, Jan. 12.
Linda Johnson, a South Bay
city commissioner, said that


keeping it there 'could have
been a hazardous situation.'
A series of studies, accord-
ing to city officials, confirmed
Johnson's claim, though the
reasoning for that was riot dis-
closed.
The 130-foot high tank,
which officials say was more
than 40 years old, had not been
in use for at least the past 10
years.
Lomax Harelle, the former
South Bay city manager, ,said
that the city has relied on two
water storage capacity tanks to
hold South Bay's water supply.
Those locations are at the
city's water treatment plant
(Levee Road) and at the city's


storage facility (Northwest 8th
Avenue).
"The water tank needed a
lot of maintenance done to it,
but the city of South Bay was
not in a financial position'to ad-
dress the expenditure," Harelle
said. Crews were seen taking
parts of the tower down last
week, as it reportedly cost the
city about $20,000 to do so.
The improvement project,
officials said, was funded by
the county's public works de-
partment.
As for other city projects,
there are plans in place to erect
welcome signs at all three en-

Florida Citrus Announces


Significant USDA Juice Purchase


Significant amount of
OJ purchased

INI Florida Florida Citrus
Mutual announced today that the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) plans to purchase ap-
proximately $26 million of orange
juice to be donated to child nutri-
tion and other domestic food as-
sistance programs.
In September, Mutual asked
the USDA to purchase a signifi-
cant amount of OJ to help reduce
inventories and. boost grower re-
turns. In its request, Mutual told
the USDA of .the rising production
costs, lower prices and mammoth
inventories now facing Florida cit-
rus growers. The USDA commit-


ment equates to about 7.3 million
gallons.
"In addition to helping one of
the country's great agriculture
industries, this significant USDA
purchase will provide a healthy
beverage for students, moth-
ers and their children across the
United States," said Michael W.
Sparks, executive VP/CEO of Flor-
ida Citrus Mutual. "We would
like to thank Secretary Schafer."
"U.S. Rep. Adam Putnam was
instrumental in this process and

Sun Speak Out Section
FADED MEMORIES: People in Belle Glade, South Bay and Paho-
kee have no voice. All we can do is pray everyday that Palm Beach
County steps in and takes over our towns and our corrupt commis-
sioners. White, Black, and Hispanic -- corruption in our small towns
involves all races. I recently traveled out of Florida through many
statesaarge and small towns. Some towns might be poor but' they
were de n, friendly and had pride. When we returned to Florida, once
we got to Canal Point, it was like you entered a third world country:
trash, filth, gangs, thugs and no community pride. What few people
that cared about their homes, yards, streets, and lets be honest had an
understanding and spoke the English language, have moved and are
moving as fast as they'can to sell their property. This saddens me that
the towns we loved as children and raised our own families in are no
more. They are just a memory.

Motorcyclist Killed
BE KIND TO US: My husband and I have a Harley Davidson. We
live in Palm Beach County but also have a place in Buckhead Ridge.
Riding around the lake on the weekends is a very popular hobby for
those of us who love to ride. People please pay attention to motor-
cycles, hare the road with us, don't run us off of them. We ride for
pleas*. We spend our money in your establishments. We are good
for your economy. Please watch for motorcycles. I saw the accident
that killed the rider and injured his wife on Sunday, Jan. 4. It was grue-
some. Then I found out it was my friend's sister and brother-in-law.
The image is forever burned into my mind. Please, please watch for
motorcycles.

10 vehicles involved in Belle Glade pileup


Semi-truck, driving
eastbound on S.R. 80,
reportedly collides
into moving train

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY Foggy" conditions on
Monday morning made for a se-
ries of ugly vehicle crashes on
State Road 80 near Belle Glade.
According to the Florida High-
way Patrol (FHP), a semi-truck,
carrying a load of sand, slammed
into a moving train at about 9:05
a.m.
Officials said that 50-year-old
Lazaro I. Perez, of Hialeah, was
driving eastbound on S.R. 80 as he
tried to cross the railroad tracks.
The semi-truck reportedly
made contact with a 2008 Ford
Edge sport utility vehicle, driven
by 35-year-old Nichole Marie
Sweet..
The hit was reportedly made


after the woman was waiting for
the train to pass.
The accident, which took place
at S.R. 80 and Hatton Highway,
was part of a 10-vehicle pileup,
which ended up being six sepa-
rate crashes, officials said.
In the incident, it was revealed
that two dump trucks, two semi-
trucks, two standard pickup
trucks, a flatbed and a sedan were
among the vehicles involved.
Fortunately, only the semi-
truck driver suffered injuries as a
result of the crash.
It was revealed that the driver's
injuries were not life-threatening
after being transported to St.
Mary's Hospital by ground due to
the fog.
The woman in the crash suf-
fered no reported injuries.
FHP Lieutenant Tim Frith, driv-
ing westbound on S.R. 80, said
that on his way to the scene, he
witnessed the fog being 'very
dense and sporadic' from Semi-
nole Pratt-Whitney Road in Loxa-
hatchee to west of 20 Mile Bend.
"It was like patchy areas of fog


that was moving," Frith said.
At times, Frith was forced to
drop his speed to 35 miles per
hour (mph), depending on the
fog conditions.
That's 30 mph lower than the
posted speed limit on the high-
way, which is set at 65 mph.
Driving at a safe speed, the
FHP lieutenant did not arrive to
the scene of the crash until 9:45
a.m., about 40 minutes after the
collision occurred.
What he witnessed was a
loaded corn truck, along with two
dump truck, that flipped over on
the highway.
"That was just amazing what I
saw," Frith said.
"When I drove to the scene,
it was foggy the entire time," the
lieutenant continued.
"My initial thought was that
anytime I receive a call involving a
semi versus a moving train, there
are usually serious injuries or even
death as a result," he said.
"There were multiple trucks
involved and to find out there was
only one person hurt, we were


very surprised."
The visibility distance, due to
the dense fog, was reportedly at
zero miles on Monday morning.
"People couldn't even see the
truck crossing the railroad," Frith
said.
"They couldn't see the red
flashing lights because the visibil-
ity was that bad."
Due to the nature of the clean-
up that followed, officials said it
took until about 10:40 a.m. to re-
open the eastbound lanes to S.R.
80.
Once those lanes were open,
S.R. 80 was converted into a two-
lane highway.
The westbound lanes were
still closed because crews were
working on removing the debris
and accident remains from the
roadway.
It reportedly took until about I
p.m. to clear the vehicles involved
from S.R. 80.
Afterwards, crews allowed for
the westbound lanes to re-open.

Mayaimis Indians: Legacy of silver, gold


Treasures in the
Glades

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The sun's western flight ush-
ered in the enveloping twilight
that slowly engulfed the last ves-
tiges of daylight in the Glades.
Imposing cypress trees that
dominated the horizon became
mere, shadowy vassals to the in-
vasive night.
The passage of night was in-
terrupted by a fiery, red glow that
pulsated from an ancient oak
hammock.
In the deep recesses of the
hammock, bright, orange flames
hungrily devoured large hewn
logs that were lying on'a sloping
hill of sand..
The light from the fire shone
like a beacon, illuminating the
surrounding darkness
Inside the sphere of firelight,
enslaved Spaniards toiled fever-
ishly, digging a large open pit.
The exhausted, sweat-
drenched figures glistened like
polished ivory in the firelight,
while shadowy figures, likened to
mahogany statues, guarded the
fringes of the sand mound.
The fire had burned to hot
white embers when the weary
slaves, lying prostrate in the sand,
were stirred by a sudden breeze
that blew life into the fire's dying
embers.
A burst of flames revealed
stacks of glittering gold ingots,
and for a moment the eyes of the


motionless men were enraptured
by the gold's warm glow.
The quote, "The love of mon-
ey is the root of all evil" has merit
in this fictitious story.
It is time to take "A Walk in
The Past" and hear some tall tales
about the curse of gold and bur-
ied treasures in the Glades.
Christopher Columbus sailed
under the king of Spain in 1492, to
find a watery route to the Spice Is-
lands, located in the East Indies.
Instead, he found a world
new to the Europeans, a world
he called the West Indies and a
people he named Indians.
Spaniards found gold in the
West Indies instead of spices, and
its gleam was infectious. .
The allurement of gold and sil-
ver drew thousands of Europeans
from all walks of life to the West
Indies.
The West Indies were mined
of its precious metals, and many
of the Indian inhabitants' were
worked to death in the gold and
silver mines. -
This infectious greed spread to
the mainland.
Cortes conquered the Aztec
Empire, and later Pizarro con-
quered the Inca Empire.
An untold wealth of gold, sil-
ver and emeralds were plundered
from these empires and shipped
to Spain.
Spanish ships, called galleons,
carried the plundered treasures
back to Spain.
Ships sailing from Mexico to
Cuba sailed down the west coast
of Florida. ,
All ships sailing to Spain fol-


lowed the Gulf Stream along the
east coast of Florila.
Hundreds of ships caught in
storms along Florida's coasts
floundered or wreaked.
Florida Indians looted the
ships treasures and killed or en-
slaved the castaways.
Like the Spaniards, the Florida
Indians found the gleam of gold
to be infectious.
The Calusas Indians demand-
ed these treasures as tribute from
tribes living along the east coast.
The Indians had no bean coun-
ters in those days, so the Calusas
got short changed.
Some Ais Indians who found
gold treasure hid and buried it,
not only from the prying eyes of
the Calusa, but also from their
own kinsmen.
Who could you trust with a
bowlful of gold?
The Calusa gave the Mayaimis
Indians on Lake Okeechobee
some of the tribute they collected
from those wily, Ais Indians living
on the east coast.
There, were other treasures
that found their way to the lake
from an early form of capitalism
called bartering.
. We will never know how
much gold and silver was brought
to Lake Okeechobee, but we do
know the Mayaimis Indians had
the 15th, 16th and part of the 17th
century to barter for treasures.
Listed are some tall tales about
treasures found around Lake
Okeechobee:
The treasure found at
Fort Center in the 1960s according


to Lawrence Wills, the famous
Lake Okeechobee historian, was
a Mother Lode.
He said, "There were heaps
and scads and slews of disc and
beads and pendants of 24 carat
gold, medallions, Inca ornaments,
and solid bars of gold and silver.
There were gold and silver or-
naments and figures to make your
eyes bug out." (True story.)
Armor breast plate found
in Glades County. (True story.)
A six-inch golden lizard
found in Hendry County. I read
the book entitled "Conquest of
Mexico," which is the journal of a
Spanish soldier, who fought with
Cortes.
He states several times in the
book that they received golden
lizards as tribute from the Aztec
Indians.
I also located a golden lizard in
a museum. (True story.)
Golden plates found in
Glades County.
I researched gold plates and
found journals that recorded the
production of gold plates in Mexi-
co and shipments to Spain.
Treasures found at the
Chosen Mounds are described by
Lawrence Wills.
He said, "A canon ball, ship's
spike, Spanish olive bottles, glass
beads and gold and silver orna-
ments were found.
A Ft. Myers paper on March 9,
1905 tells of some gator hunters
who found Spanish coins, silver
and gold beads the size of olives."
(True Stories.)
Gold nuggets found in
South Bay. (True story.)


Gold and silver beads
found at different locations in
Hendry County. (True stories.)
Gold coins found by
gator hunters in Hendry County.
(True story.)
A cache of gold coins
found by a deer hunter in Hendry
County.
These treasure stories and oth-
ers have become Glades folklore
over the years.
Some are true and others are
legends. ,
No doubt there are countless
treasure stories that have never
been told in the Glades because
silence is indeed golden.
I wrote this article "Treasures
in the Glades" because it is part of
our Glades Heritage.
Mounds must always be re-
spected.
It is a felony to dig in mounds
and rightfully so.
Treasure hunting on state
properties is illegal and a felony.
Private properties should al-
ways be respected.
I hope you have enjoyed this
story.

pictures, or a "Whale of a Tale"

dents and visitors alike to
be careful with any outdoor
burning and to check with
their local officials to deter-
mine if there is a burn ban in
effect in their area," Bronson
said.
During the past year, 2,894
wildfires have burned nearly
106,000 acres in Florida.
To minimize the wildfire
risk, Bronson is asking resi-
dents and visitors to do their
part, including:

Never leave any fire unat-
tended.

*Clear an area to bare soil
for campfires, and be sure
they are put out before you
leave.

Report any suspicious
fire by calling 911.


during dry, windy conditions.
*Do not toss cigarettes or
other lighted materials out of
car windows.


Moreover, Bronson en-
courages residents to pro-
tect their homes from fires
by clearing leaves and pine
needles from the roof and
gutters, removing dead vege-
tation from around the home
and trimming trees and limbs
within 15 foot of a chimney.

INI Florida Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson today advised
residents that below average
rainfall for the last four to
five months has significantly
increased the state's wildfire
risk.
The torrential rain associ-
ated with Tropical Storm Fay
last summer has been all but
offset by the recent drought.
In fact, the Keetch-Byram
Drought Index, which mea-
sures available soil moisture
and runs from 0 (saturated)

stands at 511 more than

Seniors shine at Outback Bowl


A total of 18 players
from four teams were

selected

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
GREENACRES Bo Schlecter had
an opportunity to score a comeback
victory in the Jan. 10 Outback Bowl
All-Star Game.
However, the opposing defense
prevented that from happening.
With just three, minutes left in the
game, the American quarterback
(Glades Day) tried to engineer a drive
that was marred by a crucial penalty.
Down 15-10 at American's 30 yard
line, Schlecter threw a 15-yard pass
completion, an out route to Pahokee
receiver Dexter Holmes.
However, the play was nullified
due to a holding call that drew a 15-
yard penalty.
After three more opportunities to
gain field position, the Georgia State-
bound quarterback just couldn't find
any open receivers, which effectively
ended the game.
The final score stood at that mar-
gin in favor of the National All-Star.
team, which featured outgoing se-
nior from central and southern Palm
*Beach County.
"The National team just came'
with some big stops on defense," said
American linebacker Hygens Sucess
(Glades Central).
Bill Powers, the American head
coach, was please with how Schlecter
kept the team in the game.
"I thought Bo threw the ball pret-
ty good," Powers said, noting that
Schlecter didn't commit any turnovers
in the game.
"He made some good decisions in
a close game."
Schlecter was the only American
quarterback available for the game.
The American MVP was Jupiter
Christian outgoing senior running
Austin Lewis, who rushed for Ameri-
can's only touchdown of the game.
Lewis scored on a 4-yard run in the
second quarter to cut National's lead
to 7-6.
That was before Jupiter kicker
Doug Parker converted on the extra
point, enabling the game to be knot-
ted up at 7-7.
Later in the second frame, Nation-
al had a prime opportunity to retake
the lead.
It came after National had a 80-
yard kickoff return returned to Ameri-
can's 20 yard line.
After American drew an unsports-
manlike call on the play, National
needed only 10 yards to reach the
scoring play.
On National's scoring drive, Amer-
ican drew two penalties.
National running back Brett


Swider, of Spanish River, scored on a
1-yard run.
National's Antoine Kirkland (Olym-
pic Heights) converted on a two-point
conversion run, putting his team up
15-7.
At halftime, National led American
by that score.
"National had a short field to work
with on that scoring drive," Powers
said.
That also occurred in the fist quar-
ter, when National quarterback Tyler
Wilhelm (Seminole Ridge) scored on
a 4-yard run to put his team up 7-0.
It was made possible after Nation-
al's special teams blocked American's
punt in the first quarter.
National needed just 30 yards to
score on the drive.
"The special team proved the dif-
ference in the game," said Bill Pow-
ers, the American team head, coach
(Jupiter Christian).
"Hats off to the National Team,
they made the big .plays when they
'had to."
Interestingly, the running game
and defense on both teams were on
high display in this low-scoring affair.
Playing in a few series at line-
backer, Sucess was surprised by the
outcome.
"I expected the game to have a
lot more offense, but both defenses
played very good," Sucess said.
Trio of running backs for the Amer-
ican Team were Clewiston's Darris
Hughes, Jupiter Christian's Austin
Lewis and Glades Central's Antonio
McCloude.
All three running backs, Powers
said, played equally throughout the
contest.
Lewis, who was named Ameri-
can's Most Valuable Player (MVP) led
all three rushers with nine carries for
104 yards and a touchdown.
Hughes, who is Clewiston's first
2,000-yard rusher, added 84 rushing
yards in the All-Star game.
American's other score came on
a field goal by Jupiter kicker Doug
Parker, who connected on a 34-yard
field goal in the third quarter to cut
National's lead to 15-10.
Both team had just four posses-
sions in the second half of the con-
test.
For American's defense, the Paho-
kee defensive back duo of N.C. State-
bound Jarvis Byrd and Willie Hick-
man each recorded an interception.
Both picks came off Wilhelm in
the first half, including Byrd's inter-
ception' grab on National's opening
possession.
Swider was named the National
team MVP of the game.
"We didn't have anyone trying to
be prima donnas," Sucess said.
"Everyone just worked together'
the whole week of practice and the
game."


Practices for the Outback Bowl
were held from Jan. 5-6 in Port St.
Lucie, while Glades Day was the host
school from Jan. 7-9.
The game was .held at John I.
Leonard High School in Greenacres.
Notes: There were a total of 18
area players selected for the Outback
Bowl, though two of them did not suit
up for the game.
Clewiston had three players select-
ed (Darris Hughes, Adam Trevino and
Troy Kornya)
Glades Central had six players
selected (Robert Ferguson, Florida
State-bound Henry Orelus, Rupert
Bryan, Artavious Dowdell, McCloude
and Sucess)
Glades Day had three players
selected (De'Andres Jackson, Alex
Mann and Schlecter).
Jackson, the Gators wide receiver/
defensive back, did not participate in
the game due to a weekend college
visit at Georgetown University.
Pahokee had six players selected
.(Donald Hester, University of Buffalo-
bound Carlos Lammons, Byrd, Hick-
man, Holmes and Norman Griffith).
Griffith, who was tragically mur-
dered a few months ago, was hon-
ored during the pre-game festivities.
Jackie Griffith was presented with
a Outback Bowl All-Star jersey in her
son's honor by New England Patriots
tight end Heath Evans.
"The Muck gets represented very
well every year," said Mike May, the
Outback Bowl All-Star Game orga-
nizer.
"Football is a big fabric of life in the
Muck," he continued.
"The talent level is always there,
but I think the talent level in other ar-
eas, like the Treasure Coast, is getting
better each year."
The American team consists of
players from the Muck area, north-
ern Palm Beach County, the Treasure
Coast and Okeechobee.
MVP voting is selected by the me-
dia and area coaches who did not
participate in the Outback Bowl All-
Star Game.
"It's like a cherry on top of the
cake," May said.
"It's a nice honor."

measured by the 2008 FCAT. Stu-
dents were treated to games, face
painting, music, snow cones, and
many other treats. The purpose of
the bash was to recognize the stu-
dents for doing well on the FCAT
and to motivate them to continue
to excel in this year's FCAT. It was
an enjoyable morning for the-
students and a great "kick-off"
for the winter holidays. Special
thanks to all who assisted with
this event and to Mrs. K. Schultz
for coordinating the festivities.

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.

If you're happy and you know it, wag your tail


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Most of us have sung at one
time or another, "If you're happy
and you know it, clap your hands.
If you're happy and you know it,
clap your hands. If you're happy
and you know it, then your face
will surely show it, if you're hap-
py and you know it, clap your
hands.
Sometimes, late at night,
my mind comes up with some


strange "what if's."
For instance, what if birds sang
the song? Would the song go, "If
you're happy and you know it,
flap your wings?" What if cats
sang it? "If you're happy and you
know it purr a lot?" purrrr-urrr.
For a dog to show that he or
she was happy I have little doubt.
My dog wags her tail excitedly
and with enthusiasm! "If you're
happy and you know it, wag your
tail. (swish-swish) If you're happy
and you know it, wag your tail.


(swish-swish) If you're happy
and you know it, then your tail
will surely show it, if you're hap-
py and you know it, wag your tail.
(swish-swish). What if we could
get happy people to swish their
tails? (I told you I come up with
some strange late night "what
if's"!)
I heard a story about a little
puppy that noticed that whenever
he was happy, his tail wagged, so
he thought he had discovered the
secret to happiness.


One day he shared the secret
of happiness with an older dog.
He said, "I have learned that the
best thing for a dog is to be happy,
and that happiness is in my tail.
So I am going to chase my tail;
and when I catch it, I shall have
happiness.
The old dog replied, "I too be-
lieve that happiness is a marvel-
ous thing for a dog, and that hap-
piness is in my tail.
But I have noticed that when-
ever I chase my tail, it keeps run-


ning away from me;,but when I
go about my business, it follows
me wherever I go.
The Bible has a lot to say about
being happy. It doesn't say, "Hap-
py are they who have a lot of mon-
ey" or "Happy are they who live in
big houses and drive fancy cars."
It doesn't even say, "Happy are
they who only have good things
happen to them." What the Bible
does say is, "Happy are the merci-
ful, happy are the peacemakers,
happy are the pure in heart." The


Bible also says, "Happy is he who
trusts in the Lord."
Many of us are like the little
puppy chasing his tail -- trying to
find true happiness that is always
just out of our reach.
What we need to do is learn
that if we will just go about our
business and trust in the Lord,
happiness will follow us where-
ever we go.


Epiphany; Manifestation, Realization, Welcome to all!


By the Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There'was a cartoon awhile
back which featured a young
couple opening their mail.
The young man turned to the
young womanand said "Hey, as
residents of the Western Hemi-
sphere, we're entitled to a dis-
count on a new car!"
I guess that would also include
about a half billion other resi-
dents, including you and I, too.
The real message is that ev-
eryone is included in the special
offer.
That's also the message of
this season of the Church year:
Epiphany.


The word means "Manifesta-
tion" and it is associated with the
magi, or wise men.
The reason is that the Lord
at His birth was "manifested" to
those Gentiles who appeared and
worshipped Him, gave Him gifts
and the refused to reveal His lo-
cation to Herod (Matthew 2:7ff)
when He is "manifested" to all
the world as God's Son. ,
These manifestations are the
beginnings of a life and ministry
which opens the doors to all of
humanity of the gifts that God
will bring to the world through
His Son.
The history of the Christian
Church as been a history of open-
ing doors to all of those who


would believe.
From the earliest of questions,
the Church has welcomed those
who were likely to think of them-
selves as being outside of God's
grace. (Acts 11), when it was ob-
vious that the gifts of God were
for all, even if they did not come
from the same spiritual traditions
as the first apostle.
It has been this opening of
doors that makes it possible
for virtually all of us to have the
works of God manifested in our
lives; that God has called us not
because of our lineage or ances-
try, or because we were inheritors
by birth of the faith first given, or
by any other thing than "being
residents of the Western, or East-


ern hemisphere!
As it is aptly expressed, (Ephe-
sians 2) that we have been given
God's grace no matter who we
are.
Comforting thought! It seems
that Jesus touch, ministered to,
and encountered all sorts of peo-
ple during His earthly life; those
whom others might have called
"unlikely candidates" or "hea-
then" or "outcast" or "sinners."
It is by the grace of God that
you and I are able to be included
among the faithful' not our piety,
not our good works, not our heri-
tage, not our memorizing from
the Bible, not our place or stand-
ing among others; nothing but
God's grace.


SA clergy colleague used to take
a can of shaving creme and emp-
ty it on a tray.
Just when his students thought
it was empty, he'd push the cap
on more time, -more shaving
creme would come out.
He'd ask if it was empty. Then
he'd push the cap again and.more
would come out, and again and
again.
There was always more
"shave" in the an even when it
seemed empty.
"That's" he say "what God's
grace is like just when we think
we've reached the end of God's
love for us, there is always still
more."
Beginning with the worship of


the Wise Men, the Baptism, the
early opening of doors among the
first recorded annals of the faith in
Acts, through the evangelism of
the whole world, there is no limit
to God's love and outreach.
Someone told us once to
imagine a box in our minds.. He
said "Now, double its size, now
double it again, and again, and
again, and again."
It could go on forever; we'd
only be limited by our abilities to
imagine.
"It's like God's love for all of'
us... there is no end." We can
only celebrate the beginning of
our awareness of it; that's what
Epiphany is about.

Someone here has left you a fortune!


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
A great Christian Scholar and
brother of my acquaintance, Don
DeWelt, who has now gone on to
his reward, wrote a tract, entitled,
"Someone died and left you a for-
tune." In the tract he says, There
was one who died for your sake
that you might inherit all the
riches of Heaven for eternity.
Galatians 1 4 "Who gave Him-
self for our sins that He might de-
liver us out of this present world."
I Peter 1:3-4 "...who according to
his great mercy began us again
unto a living hope by the resurrec-


tion of Jesus Christ from the dead,
unto an inheritance incorruptible
and undefiled, and that fadeth
not away, reserved in heaven for
you." The death of Jesus Christ,
nearly 2,000 years ago, gives you
today the right of inheritance, pro-
vided you fulfill the terms of the
will He left. This fortune is FREE
and FREELY given.
Romans 8:12 "He that spared
not His own Son, but delivered
Him up for us all, how shall He
not also with Him freely give us
all things." It cost nothing but
OBEDIENCE to: The Terms Of the
Will. 1 .Belief that Jesus is the Son
of God.

and believeth on me shall never
die." 2.Repentance of Sin.
Luke 13:3 "Except ye repent,
ye shall likewise perish." (Sorry
enough to. quit sin.)
3.Confession. Matthew 10:32
"Everyone therefore who shall
confess me before men, him will
I confess before my Father."
4. Baptism by immersion in
water. Acts 2:38 "And Peter said
unto them, repent and be bap-
tized every one of you in the name
of Jesus Christ unto the remission
of sins, and ye shall receive the
gift of the Holy Spirit."
5.A Holy Life. I Peter 1:5 "But
like as He who called you is holy,
be ye yourselves also holy in all


manner of living." 6. Be a part of
the Lord's Church. Acts 2:42 "And
they continued steadfastly in the
Apostles' doctrine, and in fellow-
ship, and in the breaking of bread
and in prayers."
If you fail to accept this gift of
eternal life you have no one to
blame but yourself, for "God is
not willing that any should perish
but that all should come to the
knowledge of repentance."
If you fail to accept God's gift
you must pay the penalty of your
own sin which is eternity in hell
with the devil and his angels.
Comply with the will and accept
your inheritance!

Three other students, all of
who were unidentified, were in-
terviewed by 20/20 as well.
The entire segment generally
focused on Damon's day, which

After the school day conclud-
ed, the 20/20 crew followed Da-
mon to Padgett Island; his area
of residence. There, Damon's
mother, Regina Weaver, got to ex-
perience what it's like to receive
camera time.
A host of Damon's neighbor-
hood friends also had the chance
to share in the momentous expe-
rience. Later in that day, the 20/20
crew went with Damon to West

Newschannel 5 was also there

According to Zimmerman,
Damon will likely get to speak

in Washington, D.C., hosted by
Roots Magazine.

ally exploded for him," Zimmer-
man said.
"I'm honored to go to the inau-
guration with Damon," he contin-
ued. "The kids were so interested
in the past election because it had
so much to do with their culture,"
the Canal Point Elementary me-
dia advisor said.
"Going to the Roots ball will
be a great celebration of African-
American culture."
The 10-year-old, who's the
only student in the nation to gain
press credentials ,to the inaugu-
ration ceremony, will also get to
interview a host of celebrities at a
youth concert in the nation's capi-
tal. The youth concert broadcast,
according to Zimmerman, is slat-
ed for viewing live on the Disney
Channel, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m.
To top it all off, Damon will
gain exclusive access to the inau-
guration parade, which will likely
feature hundreds of thousands of
people.
It's been reported that well
over a million people will be in
the nation's capital for this his-
toric occasion.
As for the big interview, Zim-
merman had this to say:
"I'm pretty optimistic it will
happen," Zimmerman said of
Damon's chances to interview
Obama.
More possibilities for
Damon

Damon wasn't enough, there's
a possibility he will appear on a
daytime talk show in the near fu-
ture.

It's probable that the student
standout will receive airtime on
either the Emmy-winning Ellen
DeGeneres Show or the upstart
Bonnie Hunt Show.
There's no word yet on wheth-
er or not it will happen, but Zim-
merman said he'll find out soon.
But what will certainly hap-
pen is that Damon, Alysia, their
mothers, Zimmerman and Ca-
mella Slydell will check out all the
Washington, D.C. landmarks.
That includes the Smithsonian
Museum, which is regarded as
one of the city's best treasures.
The group, which will be leav-

Beach on Sunday, Jan. 18, will be
staying at a hostel for three nights

"The main point is trying to
create reports from D.C., so it's
not going to be a vacation," Zim-
merman said.
"It will be fun, but it will be a
working trip."
Zimmerman has raised about
$8,000 for the trip, with the help
Sof Florida Crystals, Sugar Cane
Growers Cooperative of America
and the Professional Firefighters
of Palm Beach County.
St. Mary's Catholic Church of
Pahokee and the Kiwanis Club
also contributed with the fund-
ing.
The funds will reportedly cover
the expenses for their airfare, ho-
tel accommodations, food, cloth-
ing, wireless microphones and
studio equipment, among others.

Update on BG fire station


Move-in date, barring
setbacks, could be on
Apr. 15

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The interior
of the city's fire rescue building is
currently undergoing renovations
in a big way.
According to Michael Arena,
district battalion chief, detailing
the inside of the facility will be
key.
The flooring is currently in its
finishing touches, with tile and
carpet surfaces to be placed in
different rooms throughout the
building.
Tile flooring, according to
Arena, is set to be placed in the
kitchen and bathroom areas.
In the kitchen, what rescue
crews will have are two residen-
tial dishwashers, a low-end com-
mercial stove and oven, three
residential refrigerators (one for
each shift) and a table that allows


for up to 16 chairs.
Installation for these applianc-
es will be available in the next few
weeks, including the 16 chairs,
according to Arena.
As for the bathroom; every-
thing needed for refurbishments
have been installed, including
several shower stalls and several
sinks, among others.
The day room area, set to be
outfitted with carpeting in the
next several weeks, will consist of
12 chairs and a plasma television.
It must be noted that crews are
currently using the chairs and the
television in their trailers, with the
television being paid for by the
fire rescue employees.
Carpeting will also be assem-
bled in the facility's other rooms,
which include the crew bunk
room, the captain's bunk room,
the captain's office, the district
chief's office, and Arena's office
area.
The apron, also known as the
rear area of the fire station, is
completely renovated, including
the driveway, officials said.


The water main, meanwhile,
has yet to be replaced, meaning
that access to water on the inside
of the building is not available at
this time.
Though plans for the water
main. have been approved by the
city and county, the Palm Beach
County Fire Rescue must submit
the details to West Construction,
the project's contractor.
The turnaround time for the
water main installation, accord-
ing to Arena, is about 60 days
from now.
After that, a .punch list is
scheduled to be submitted to the
contractor, which means that the
fire rescue will look through the
entire station building to make
sure all details are finished.
"Before you move in, you
want to make sure everything is
the way you want it," Arena said
of the punch list.
If everything goes according
to plan, barring unforeseen set-
backs, the move-in date will likely
be on Apr. 15.
