No serious injuries
were reported
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE A series of shoot-
ings took place on the evening of
Jan. 12.
Three individuals reported
separate incidents, yet no one
was seriously injured.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
the three shootings took place
within a span of just 10 minutes.


At about 7:53 p.m., a 31-year-
old man was reportedly shot in
the shoulder area.
The incident took place on
Rardin Ave.
The victim, identified as
Christopher Williams, was later
airlifted to St. Mary's Hospital for
treatment of his wounds.
Just seven minutes later, at
8 p.m., an unidentified woman
was shot just outside her resi-
dence on Cypress Ave.
Initial reports claimed that
she had been shot in the hand,
but closer 'examination revealed
that she suffered no injuries as a


result.
Authorities determined that
the woman, who heard gun-
shots outside her home, went to
the front door and discovered a
bullet hole there.
The bullet reportedly was ly-
ing just inside the front door on
the woman's floor.
Three minutes later, at 8:03
p.m., Charlie Bens, a 26-year-old
man, was grazed in his left hand
at 314 Rardin Ave.
Detectives said that the man
was walking in the area of the
Parker Building, which is at 169
Adam Place.


INi/Jose Zaragoza
Young students, residents and local groups participated in the Martin Luther King Day
Parade In Belle Glade on Monday. The event took on added significance this year,
preceding the inauguration of the nation's first African-American president, Barack
Obama.


INI/Jose Zaragoza
The local branch of the NAACP made its perennial appearance in the Martin Luther
King Day Parade in Belle Glade.


It was also determined that
the suspect started shooting at
him multiple times, with one of
those bullets striking his hand.
Javaris Kannard Wallace, 20,
was later arrested in connection
with the crime.
The victim was reportedly
transported to Glades General
Hospital, where he was later
treated and released for an abra-
sion to his left pinky.
PBSO Lieutenant Reinaldo
Alonso, the District 12-Pahokee
commander, believes the three
shootings were related to an in-
cident that occurred outside of


the city.
The lieutenant also revealed
that several additional subjects
of interest were being looked
into by the Violent Crimes Task
Force.
It was revealed that at this
time, the sheriff's office has
made an arrest in connection to
the shootings, with a second ap-
prehension imminent.
No other information was
available, as detectives are still
investigating the incident.

COUNTY Francis G. Schofield,
75, left his vehicle and walked
on State Road 700 in the pitch
dark.
On the night of Jan. 15, the
stroll would be his last after a
vehicle struck and killed him.
According to the Fla. High-
way Patrol (FHP), a 2004 GMC
Denali, driven by 32-year-old
John Robert May, was traveling
eastbound on S.R. 700.
It was revealed that as the


victim walked across the west-
bound lane of the roadway, he
made an attempt to unlock the
gate to his driveway.
Unfortunately, as the victim
reportedly walked into the east-
bound lane, he was struck.
Paramedics found the victim
lying on the grass shoulder on
the south side of S.R. 700.
The elderly man was pro-
nounced dead on the scene.
The driver, of Loxahatchee,
suffered no injuries. His pas-
senger, an 8-year-old, also es-
caped unharmed.
The incident happened
at about 7:15 p.m. 2.6 miles
west of Muck City Road, which
stretches from Pahokee's city
limits to S.R. 700.


Farewell for PBCC provost


Students, staff
make collage in Dr.
Beverly Robinson's
honor
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE A mentor
and an innovator.
A teacher and a leader.
A visionary and a champion
of student success.
Those traits, many locals
say, embodied what Dr. Beverly
Robinson put on display in her
time as the Palm Beach Com-
munity College provost.


It carried a significant role in
how the Glades area honored
her with a farewell party on Fri-
day, Jan. 16. ,
The occasion, held at the
Dolly Hand Center, had a slew
of highlights, which included a
proclamation made in Dr. Rob-
inson's honor.
It came courtesy of Pahokee
City Commissioner Allie Biggs
and the city of Pahokee.
Dr. Robinson was presented
with a special tribute, courtesy
of the School District of Palm
Beach County and its superin-
tendent, Art Johnson.
The county's school su-
perintendent wasn't among
the approximately 150 people


in attendance, but Dr. Dennis
Gallon, the PBCC college presi-
dent, stepped in to make the
presentation.
"There's no doubt that Dr.
Robinson has established an in-
credible legacy in her short ten-
ure as a provost of the Glades
campus," Dr. Gallon said.
Lomax Harelle, the current
Belle Glade city manager, was
one of those in attendance.
What he most remembers
about Dr. Robinson is how she
made a positive impact on the
youth in the area.
"Dr. Robinson went out of
her way to tell her students the

MANY VISITORS CASHING IN AT THE ROADSHOW THIS WEEK

the Roadshow is coming to
town. Roadshow experts are in
town all this week purchasing
antiques and collectibles.
While the Roadshow will
accept anything that's old,
they are focusing on gold and
silver, also coins made before
1965, military items, musical
instruments, pocket and wrist
watches. Modern jewelry with


diamonds and other precious
stones are also being accepted.
One person that attended
the Roadshow brought in an
1864 Civil War sword and
a coin collection and left 45
minutes later $10,000 richer.
Another was not as lucky but
seemed happy with the $355.00
they received for broken gold
jewelry. "I think this is a great
idea" said one lady that sold

broken gold chains. "The stuff
was just lying in a dresser
drawer for years." She received
$248.42 for her efforts. Jeff
Parsons, the president of the
Treasure Hunters Roadshow
explained what the show is all
about. It's a chance for anyone
to sell their stuff and get what
it's really worth he said. It
seems everyone has items they
have wondered about or want
to sell but really don't know
where to go said Parsons. He
said the show has been in over
600 cities since 2001. When
asked what the most memorable
experience was he had a quick
answer. "Without a doubt it was
a show in Pennsylvania when an
elderly gentleman asked if we
could send someone with him


to visit an old toy store he had
closed down 50 years ago. It
was like walking back in time"
Parsons said "the store's 50 year
old inventory was still on the
shelves the store was a treasure
trove of collectible toys. I have
never seen anything like it. It
was simply unbelievable!
It seems the store was closed
due to World War II. "I had
to go serve my country." the
owner told Parsons. Serve he
did for the next 35 years. The
collection of vintage toys still
in their original boxes sold for
more than $650.000. All this
week Roadshow experts will
be accepting various types of
antiques and collectibles. The
event is free and no appointment
is necessary.

Sugar Cane Golf Club



Selects Media Group


Goal is to increase
awareness

Belle Glade, Fla. --- Sugar
Cane Golf Club is pleased to
announce that it has reached
agreement with Wellington
based Liberty Media Group,
which will assist with publicity.
"I'm very excited about working
with Sugar Cane Golf Club," said
Liberty Media's Bill Underwood.
"I love golf, and have played
the course many times. It's al-
ways great to get away from it
all and head out to Belle Glade.
And the new ownership seems
very committed to making the
course a success."
The golf course, formerly
known as the Belle Glade Mu-
nicipal Golf Course, has under-
gone a rebirth since its acquisi-
tion by Golf Operators Link of
Florida LLC. Partners Kenneth
Orender and John Hendricks
have made reviving the course
a top priority, and thus far their
efforts are bearing fruit. "The
course is really coming along,"
said Orender, "and once people
visit they always come back. It's
very relaxing you won't see a
house or a back yard the entire
day."
The par 72 course, which
measures 6,558 yards, is lo-
cated less than one hour from
the heart of Fort Lauderdale,
Palm Beach and Martin County.
Nestled amongst western Palm

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
vacations, low-income parents
anticipate 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 pro-
gram provides full tuition and fees
for the entire summer for families
with incomes 25% more than
Federal Poverty Guidelines or low-
er. For example, a family of four
earning $26,500 or less can quali-
fy. 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 pro-
gram coordinator Maria Watson.
Qualifying parents may make an
appointment to complete an ap-
plication at the Human Services

Letters to the Editor


The road to the White
House
This letter is in direct response
to Marilyn McCorvey, Clewiston
city clerk's statement, "I gotta be
honest with you, it's not history
making to me, it doesn't matter
about black or white. It's just an
event, and he (President-elect Ba-
rack Obama) is just a man," as
quoted in the article, "A take on
inauguration," Clewiston News,
Thursday, Jan. 15, 2009 edition.
Well, her opinion is absolutely
right, he is just a man. However,
in my opinion he is symbolic of
so much more.
By the time this response is
printed in the paper President-
elect Obama will have been
sworn in as America's 44th presi-
dent. To attain the highest office
in this "land of the free, and home
of the brave," is without question
monumental. It is astronomical
to see that America, from "sea
to shining sea" elected a man of
African descent. President-elect
Obama's road to the White House
did not begin Feb. 10, 2007 in front
of the state capitol in Springfield,
Ill. This road began centuries ago,
and was paved much earlier.
Long before Abraham Lincoln's
route to the White House (which
President-elect Obama followed
in January 2009), there was the
Trans-Atlantic slave route. Count-
less numbers of Africans were
forced from their homes, families
and culture, made to endure or-
ganized free labor in the form of
slavery sanctioned for a time by
our government. The sanction-
ing of slavery mocked the time-
less words of our Declaration of
Independence -- "We hold these
truths to be self-evident, that all
men are created equal, that they
are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable Rights,


that among these are Life, Liberty
and the pursuit of Happiness."
The road to the White House
continued to be paved with slave
rebellions, anti-slavery move-
ments such as: The Underground
Railroad, the raid on Harper's
Ferry and the Dred Scott case.
In 1854, Dred Scott, a slave, was
taken by his master into the free
states of Illinois, Wisconsin and
Minnesota. Scott stayed out of
Missouri, his slave state, for four
years. His claim was that he was
an established person on "free
soil." The lower courts ruled
against Scott. The case eventu-
ally went to the Supreme Court
of the United States. Again, the
ruling was unfavorable. Chief
Justice Roger B. Taney, a resident
of Maryland, and the other jus-
tices, ruled that Dred Scott could
not bring suit in federal court be-
cause he was a Negro, not just a
slave. No Negro, whether slave or
free, could ever be considered a
citizen of the United States within
the meaning of the Constitution.
Can you imagine what Chief Jus-
tice Roger Taney would say today
knowing Barack Obama was
sworn in as America's 44th presi-
dent on Jan. 20, 2009?
My dear young lady, perhaps
you are too young to remember
the brutality of lynching, segregat-
ed, dilapidated school buildings,
discarded textbooks graciously
passed on from White schools
to Black schools. You may not
have a frame of reference for the
bombing of Birmingham, Jim
Crow laws, the terror born from
having your leg clutched between
the jaws of dogs, the sting of wa-
ter unleashed on your body, and
the dehumanizing pain which
comes from being spit on. Hon-
estly, I have no reference other
than what I have seen, heard and
read. However, I am well aware

that it is easy to forget, in today's
era of more cautious and covert
discrimination, that the choice to
add one's voice to the chorus for
change was a choice that could --
and not infrequently did -- result
in death during the Civil Rights
struggle. But those were the
stakes between the years 1954
and 1968 in the United States of
America.
Tens of thousands of people of
all races risked not just their stand-
ing in the community, but also
their lives, in the hope of building
a coalition for racial equality that
could not possibly be ignored.
They succeeded in building that
coalition -- even if the highest ide-
als of the cause they promoted re-
mained, in some cases, unfulfilled
until President-elect Obama.
The 2008 presidential elec-
tion was a transformative effort
not only for Hendry County and
America, but the world. This elec-
tion unfolded before the eyes of
the world. Citizens of the globe
watched some in awe and jubila-
tion, others in shock and dismay
as Barack Obama was declared
the winner of the 2008 presiden-
tial election. This presidential
election can best be summarized
with one word: change. From the
ghettos of France and England, to
the shanty towns of Africa and all
points in between minorities have
a renewed hope that if America
can elect a Black man, then yes,
all things are possible.
I hope you and others with
your view will continue to believe
that President-elect Obama is
just a man. Remember that if the
economy continues to worsen,


the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
linger, the number of American
citizens without healthcare in-
creases and education plummets.
Remember one man and one
administration cannot repair the
decades of idiocy and misman-
agement that.has been allowed
to permeate our government.
In closing, I will share with
you the words of Newt Gingrich,
former Republican speaker of the
house, as stated on Fox News
Jan. 19, 2009, "This (presidential
inauguration) is a historic mo-
ment to be cherished." You see,
even Mr. Gingrich recognizes the
magnitude of the occasion. Fur-
thermore, I challenge you and all
people; those who will read this
letter and hear of this letter, Black,
White, Hispanic, Native Ameri-
can, to not be narrow-minded in
your thinking and beliefs. Reach
for your personal mountaintop.
President-elect Obama has at-
tained the pinnacle of politics.
He is America's president for
the next four years. As patriotic
Americans, let us unite and keep
our president, his family and his
cabinet members in prayer. Let us
follow his example of community
activism. And finally, I implore
all minorities to recognize their
God-given power of creativity. De-
velop your own businesses, write
books and magazine articles. Em-
power yourselves through read-
ing and education. Let us all work
together, embrace change, and
continue the dream of economic
equality.
Sincerely,
Whynett Jones

FHSAA reclassifies football districts


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION The
area's high school football teams
will experience significant sched-
ule changes come this upcoming
fall.
Courtesy of the Florida High
School Athletic Association (FH-
SAA), some teams will benefit
from them, while others won't
due to the classification restruc-
turing that took place, effective
Jan. 16.
In high school football, there
are a total of eight classifications
(Class 6A, Class 5A, Class 4A,
Class 3A, Class 2A, Class 2B, Class
1A and Class 1B).
In short, fans everywhere can
expect to witness a highly enter-
taining 2009 season, which will
likely consist of many surprises
and disappointments.
Here's a quick rundown of the
2008 state champions:
Sanford-Seminole
(6A)
USA Today national
"champion St. Thomas
Aquinas (5A),
Tampa-Plant (4A)
Cocoa (3A)
Jacksonville-Bolles
(2A)
Pahokee (2B)
Tallahasse-North Flori-
da Christian (IA)
Jupiter Christian (I B)
Pahokee faces slew of
tests in 2009.
For the past few years, it was
argued by many that Class 2Btwas
deemed the weakest in the state.
Those who came with the
conclusion attributed to the fact
that since Class 2B was formed
in 2003, the Pahokee Blue Devils
have won a total of five out of six
state championships.
Pahokee, a six-time state
champion, won titles in 1989
(Class 2A), 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007
and 2008.
In essence, the Blue Devils will
be the three-time defending Class
2B state champions this fall.
Winning four straight cham-
pionships, however, will be a tall
order as a slew of powerhouse
programs, due to the FHSAA clas-
sification restructuring plan, have
moved down to Class 2B,
All of the classifications and
districts are set to be in place
for the next two seasons (2009-
2010).
The teams that will be join-
ing Pahokee in the. formerly
weak 2B class include nine-time
state champion Jacksonville-
Bolles, Madison County (Class 2A
champs in 2007; reached as high
as No. 9 in last season's USA To-
day Super 25 High School Poll),
Miami-Gulliver Prep (Class 2A
state finalist last year) and Miami-
Monsignor Pace (Class 3A state
semifinalist last season).
Pahokee, which is classified.
as a District 7-2B team again, will
be in a nine-team district, which
includes Cocoa Beach and North
Broward Prep, to name just two.
The restructuring plan, which
was made to alleviate travel for all
of the state's teams, probably hurt
Pahokee the most.
"We have 2-3 hour travel times
in some of our district games,"
said Blaze Thompson, the Blue
Devils head coach.
"It's going to be quite interest-
ing.
With nine set regular-season


games, including the annual
Muck Bowl against Glades Cen-
tral, that leaves Pahokee with just
one game to schedule.
"There are a number of teams
requesting to play us, but we'll
see what happens," .Thompson
said.
"It is what it is, there's nothing
we can do about it.
"There's no changing it now."
Nevertheless, though Pahokee
will have to navigate through great
teams in each round, Thompson
still believes his team can win
state again.
"I think we can play anybody,"
Thompson said.
"We have a lot of returning
players who played a lot last sea-
son.
"We anticipate to maintain our
level of play; we look forward to
competing against what's set to
be a stacked 2B schedule."
The Blue Devils, who will be
returning 18 of last season's 44
players, will need to use all of its
personnel to its advantage if they
want to capture a seventh state
title.
Pahokee will have several star
receivers on the 2009 team, with
Dennis Hall, De'Joshua Johnson
and Kaalum Williams returning
as seniors.
Going into the season, how-
ever, Johnson will likely assume
the role as the Blue Devils starting
quarterback.
The ESPN150 Class of 2010
Watch List athlete will start over
Emmanuel Perez, who's yet to
find ample comfort in Pahokee's
high-octane offense.
The best-case scenario for the
Blue Devils is that Perez would
actually be able to start at some
point, with Johnson filling his
natural role.
That gives Pahokee a seriously
potent receiving corps in Johnson,
Hall, Williams and new transfer
Fred Pickett, who enrolled at Pa-
hokee High School last week.
"I don't think there are many
wide receiving corps better than
that," Thompson said.
The Pickett effect
Jessie Hester, the Glades Cen-
tral Raiders head coach, may beg
to differ on that claim.
Though the Raiders have just
lost Pickett, who made game-
winning grabs in three games for
them last season, Hester believes
they 'won't miss a beat.'
"Losing a kid like Fred hurts,
with the talent he has," Hester
said.
"We're just fortunate enough
to have other kids who are ready
to step up at the receiver posi-
tion."
Glades Central, which had as
many as seven wideouts last sea-
son, will have about as much as
that in the fall.
The Raiders bring back Nev-
ille Brown and Kelvin Benjamin,
who were both sophomores
in Hester's first season as head
coach.
They'll also have Carlton Lew-
is and Kelvin Darrisaw, in addition
to Greg Dent, who's widely con-
sidered as the best overall talent
in the Muck right now.
With Leron 'L.J.' Thomas slat-
ed to recover from his collarbone
injury for his upcoming senior
season, the passing attack looks
very promising for Glades Cen-
tral.
Antwon Chisolm may be pen-
ciled in as 2009's starting running


back, but concerns arise in terms
of how the lineman will turn out.
Hester, who considers the of-
fensive line as the most important
part of the team, simply had this
to say about the situation.
"Our work is definitely cut out
for us, but we have some young
kids here and we'll try to find a
way to get it done."
As Glades Central moves
down from Class 3A to Class 2A,-
the team now seemingly has a
smooth path to the state title
game for the next two seasons.
In a classification that has just
36 total schools, Glades Central,
which is in District 7-2A, has only
two district opponents (Boynton
Beach and Suncoast).
So being playoff ready will
work to Hester's advantage, as he
can 'schedule up to seven regular
season games, not including the
annual Muck Bowl against Paho-
kee.
That also doesn't include the
spring game or the Kickoff Clas-
sic.
For the upcoming season,
Glades Central hopes to face the
likes of Palm Beach Lakes, Dwyer,
Royal Palm Beach, Jupiter Chris-
tian, Clewiston, Seminole Ridge,
Miami-Northwestern and maybe
even defending national cham-
pion St. Thomas Aquinas.
"During the playoffs, there will
be a lot of tough times," Hester
said.
"If the kids experience some
tough games in the regular sea-
son, then they'll know how to
respond in the playoffs."
Glades Day and Moore
Haven move down
Glades Day, a longtime Class
lA powerhouse, has been moved
down to Class lB.
That's fine with Pete Walker,
the Gators head coach.
It's no surprise, considering
the fact that Glades Day has an
opportunity to get even with two-
time defending Class 1B state
champion Jupiter Christian.
Both teams are in the same
district, which will make for a
great rivalry.
Glades Day, which is in a six-
team district, has only five games
it can schedule outside of District
7-1B.
The teams Glades Day will face
in the regular season could pos-
sibly be Clewiston,, King's Acad-
emy, Bishop Verot, Okeechobee
and LaBelle.
"Our schedule will pretty much
be the same," Walker said.
"We got a bigger district this
year, but we could still play very
competitive football."
However, the Glades Day-
Moore Haven rivalry is all but of-
ficially dead, as the Terriers move
down to District 6-1B.
Jason Bond, the Moore Haven
coach, has his work cut out for
him, as St. John Neumann and
Evangelical Christianr await once
again in district play.
Evangelical Christian eliminat-
ed Moore Haven from Class 1A
playoff contention last season.
"It should be interesting be-
cause some of our rivalries are
still intact," Bond said.
"But they'll be some now
teams that we haven't played be-
fore," he continued.
"It'll be a fun experience."
Clewiston to Class 2B
Joe Roth, Clewiston's head


coach, will have to take his team
to points west and north this sea-
son.
For a team that played St. An-
drews, Inlet Grove, Cardinal New-
man and Pope John Paul in district
play the past four seasons those
teams are on the east coast the
travel won't affect Roth much.
"We're so centrally located, so
it will basically be the same as last
time, when we were in Class 2A,"
Roth said.
"We'll deal with the travel the
best way we can."
Clewiston won't play Class
2B power Pahokee in the regular
season, but the rivalry can be re-
newed in the playoffs.
The only way these two teams
can meet is if they reach the Class
2B state semifinals.
Nevertheless, Clewiston is try-
ing to keep its annual rivalry in-
tact with Glades Central, Glades
Day, Okeechobee and American
Heritage-Plantation.
The Tigers, who play LaBelle
each season for the Hendry
County Championship, will be in
the Cowboys' district for the next
two season.
Clewiston will have to face
these teams in District 6-2B play:
Cardinal Mooney
(Sarasota)
Dunbar (Fort Myers)
Gateway Charter
Island Coast
Lake Placid
LaBelle
It was revealed that the Tigers
will face King's Academy in the
Kickoff Classic.
"I think we'll be competitive in
district play this year," Roth said.
"I'm not familiar with some of
the teams, but we'll do the best
we can."
Notes: Pahokee has to face
these eight teams in District 7-2B
play the next two seasons:
Cardinal Newman
(West Palm Beach)
Cocoa Beach
Coral Springs Charter
Inlet Grove (Riviera
Beach)
North Broward Prep
(Coconut Creek)
Pine Crest (Fort Lau-
derdale)
St. Andrews (Boca Ra-


ton)
University (Fort Lau-

Glades Day must play these
teams in District 7-1B play:
Berean Christian (West
Palm Beach)
Summit Christian
(West Palm Beach)
Jupiter Christian
Zion Lutheran (Deer-
field Beach)
Village Academy (Delray
Beach) will be eligible for District
7-1B play in 2010.

Hispanic involvement in the New World


Spanish shape the
history of the state

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The pale moon floated above
the black horizon, illuminating
the night sky with long, silvery
threads of light.
Glistening surf and long, white
beaches bathed in the soft lus-
trous glow as sloping, sandy
dunes rose and fell to the moon-
lights fleeting passage.
The quiet, peaceful landscape
was disrupted by the ominous
glint of steel.
Toledo steel, swathed in the
luminous moonlight, exposed
armed men hurrying a bewil-
dered column of captives to their
doom.
Exhausted and incoherent
men that had escaped the cold,
piteous jaws of the sea, staggered
unknowingly to their deaths.
A murderous act, executed in
the secrecy of darkness, revealed
human carnage in the early,
dawn's light.
Hundreds of grotesque forms
lay strewn like driftwood along
the blood-stained dunes. .
Who were these people, and
why would "civilized" men per-
form such a barbarian act?
It is time to take a "Walk in The
Past" and unveil a dark side of our
Sunshine state.
All Spanish ships sailing from
the New World to Europe fol-
lowed the Gulf Stream northward
to the Carolinas, before starting
the Atlantic crossing.
The Gulf Stream provided a
natural shipping route, flowing


parallel to Florida's Atlantic coast-
line, making "La Florida" a vital
and strategic territory to Spain.
In 1561, the Spanish Admiral,
Don Pedro Menendez De Aviles,
commanded the Spanish Trea-
sure Fleet that sailed from Mexico
to Spain.
In route, a vessel sank in a
storm off the Florida coast.
Pedro Menendez's son, rela-
tives and friends were onboard
the stricken vessel.
Pedro Menendez arrived in
Spain and requested permission
from King Phillip II to return to
Florida and search for his son, but
was refused.
Several years later the .king
granted Menendez permission,
on the condition he would ex-
plore and colonize Florida.
Menendez outfitted a ship with
personal funds and was preparing
to sail, when the king summoned
him.
The French had built a fort in
Florida and King Phillip II wanted
it destroyed.
In 1565, Menendez was dis-
patched with a fleet of ships to
destroy Fort Carolina, a French
fort located at the mouth of the
St. Johns River, near present day
Jacksonville.
In September, 1565, the Span-
ish sighted the French fleet at Fort
Carolina, but the French avoided
a naval engagement.
Pedro Menendez's sailed south
35 miles, and on September 8,
1565, landed and started a settle-
ment.
He named the settlement St.
Augustine.
Pedro Menendez marched
over land and led a surprise attack


on Fort Carolina.
Approximately 200 Frenchmen
were killed in battle or executed
as prisoners.
A few men escaped, but 50
women and children were taken
as prisoners, and the fort was de-
stroyed.
The bottled-up French fleet
had left Fort Carolina and were
searching for the Spanish fleet,
when Menendez destroyed Fort
Carolina.
A September storm destroyed
the French fleet, drowning many
of the men.
French survivors numbering
300, under the command of Jean
Ribault, surrendered to Pedro Me-
nendez, who ordered their execu-
tion.
The prisoners were tied and
then led behind the sand dunes,
where their throats were cut.
The site was named Matanzas,
meaning massacres.
In 1566, Pedro Menendez
made contact with Caalus, a
Calusa ruler living in the province
of Calus, an area known today as
Charlotte Harbor.
Pedro Menendez had been
notified that many Spanish cast-
aways were held there as slaves
and had hopes he would find his
son.
He sailed to the province of
Calus and met our ole friend Es-
calate Fontenado, who had been
a slave for 17 years.
Unfortunately, Fontenado's
older brother and 42 people, who
had survived the ship wreck with
Fontenado, were dead.
They were victims of the sac-
rificial rites practiced by the Calu-
sas. Pedro Menendez located


other castaways, but never found
his son.
. Pedro Menendez established a
"friendly," diplomatic relationship
with Caalus, the Calusa cacique,
who the Spanish called Carlos.
The truce between Pedro Me-
nendez and Carlos was only a
ploy.
Both men had a plan, hoping
to exploit the other.
Carlos wanted aid from the
Spanish to conquer the Tocobaga
Indian nation, located on Tampa
Bay.
Pedro Menendez wished to
subdue the warlike Calusa, who
were a threat to Spanish mariners
and settlements.
There will be more "Tale
Tales" in next weeks edition of "A
Walk in The Past" when the Span-
ish struggle to establish missions
in South Florida.

story.

St. Theresa parish founder dies


Father Swaitecki
passes away
in Poland

Glades County Catholics were
saddened this week with the
news of the death of Father Emil-
ian Swiatecki.
Father Swaitecki, former pas-
tor of St. Joseph the Worker Cath-
olic Church in Moore Haven and
founder of St. Theresa parish in,
Buckhead Ridge, died in his na-
tive Poland. He was 78.
Father Swiatecki was born in
Poland and was ordained there
in 1956.
When he was first ordained,
he worked with Bishop Karol
Wojtyla who would later be-
come Pope John Paul II.
Father Swiatecki loved his na-
tive country and had no desire to
ever leave it, but political circum-
stances made it impossible for
him to stay, according to a 2001
interview.
The outspoken priest defied
the Communists from the pulpit.
"I told the truth," he said. "They
didn't like it."
His life in danger, church offi-
cials sent Father Swiatecki to the
United States in 1972.
At first he was stationed in ar-
eas with Polish communities, but
communist agents still ,gave him
trouble.
Eventually he was transferred
to Florida and assigned to the
Venice Diocese.
He served as Parochial Vicar of
St. Paul Parish, St. Petersburg, Pa-
rochial Vicar of St. Francis Xavier
Parish, Fort Myers, and Parochial
Vicar of Ascension Parish, Fort
Myers Beach.
He became pastor of St. Jo-
seph the Worker Parish in Moore
Haven in November 1991.
Father Swiatecki had humble
beginnings at the Moore Haven
parish.
The church was already 30
years old and his first home was a
tiny trailer that rattled and shook
when trucks passed the church
property.
The parish's bank account
held $42 and his first Mass at the
parish attracted 12 people.
As Father Swiatecki traveled
around Glades County, he dis-
covered the town of Buckhead
Ridge.
With the permission of Bishop
John J. Nevins, he began to offer
Mass there at the Buckhead Ridge
Community Center.
In October of 1992, a repair
shop building was purchased and
renovated to house St. Theresa of
the Child Jesus Mission.
In 1996, a more comfortable
rectory was built on the grounds
of St. Joseph the Worker Parish in
Moore Haven and in 1999, ground
was broken for a new $1.5 million
church building to accommodate
the growing Moore Haven con-
gregation and to provide religious
instruction classrooms.
The new St. Joseph Church
was dedicated in February 2000.
Father Swiatecki was particularly
proud of the mural that takes up
the entire wall behind the altar,


which depicts a smiling Jesus
surrounded by children.
Local artist Frank Hopper
painted the masterpiece using
children from the parish as mod-
els.
In addition to his duties in
both Moore Haven and Buck-
head Ridge, Father Swiatecki
served as chaplain for Wacken-
hut Correctional Institute, which
was built on property neighbor-
ing the parish.
He jokingly referred to the
prisoners as his "seminarians."
Father Swiatecki also helped-
establish a food pantry.
At the time of Father Swiate-
cki's retirement in 2001, the pan-
try was distributing eight tons of
food a month to needy families in
Glades County.

Father Swiatecki's dedica-
tion to his parishioners was
evident when he had a heart
attack in 1995.
He upset his doctor by re-
fusing to go to the emergency
room until he had taken care
of parish business, making
sure there would be another
priest to say Mass while he
was in the hospital for by-pass
surgery.
When he retired in 2001,
Father Swiatecki said he was
looking forward to returning
to his native Poland, which is
no longer under the commu-
nist influence.

When going back there, isn't there any more


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. d.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
A recent editorial expressed
concerns about factions and de-
nominations in religion, and sug-
gested "getting back to the Bible"
to make all things well. Studies in
comparative religion give some
answers about why things are
the way they are; and the prayer
"..that they all might be one..." is
yet to be realized. Much has to do
with our understandings of what
the Bible teaches and what is in-
tended by God for us.
For example, there are those
who believe blood transfusions
are against God's law because
of Biblical teachings about "the
blood is life" and if you take some-
one's blood, you take his life.
Others see the use of "blood" as
a metaphor for life, knowing that


the body replenishes it's blood
supply and there is no problem
about transfusions. God's com-
mandments are understood to
proscribe the taking of "life" and
not "blood" per se. There are
admonitions in the First Epistle
of Timothy that church leaders
should be "the husband of one
wife" (chapter 3, verse 2) and
take this as forbidding polygamy.
Others see it as meaning only one
wife per lifetime.
Maybe it can mean "against re-
marriage" if the leader becomes a
widower. Is it "one wife at a time"
or "one wife, period" or are you
free to remarry if you are a wid-
ower? The Bible seems to support
slavery in some places (1 Timo-
thy 6:1, Philemon) and yet tells
us that "there is neither Jew nor
Greek, male nor female, slave nor
free, for you are all one in Christ
Jesus (Galatians 3:28)." Does this


mean "all equal, period?" I think
so.
It also speaks to those who
would object to women in min-
istry; all are one, and the Bible
speaks of woman deacons,
weren't they ministers too? There
are many, many understandings
of scriptures, all with their own
claim to validity. The other day
I received in the mail a list of
"denomination codes" with the
names of various Churches; there
were one hundred sixty-three of
them in the U.S. and the list .is
not exhaustive. I asked someone
what he thought it meant when
Paul tells Timothy to "No longer
drink only water but use a little
wine for your stomach's sake and
your frequent ailments (1 Timo-
thy 5:23)."
He told me it meant putting the
wine on your hand and rubbing it
on like a lineament. I don't think


so! He had his interpretation, I
have mine. Getting back to the
Bible also raises other questions
like... whose Bible? Some feel
there is only one translation that
is valid, and fortunately for them it
is in their language. I find such an
attitude seeming to say that God
speaks through the Bible to only
one group of people. Even with-
in a language group, there are
changes over time. Psalm 26:2,
for example, in an older English
translation is a prayer to God to
"examine me and prove me..."
where "prove" is used in the older
sense of "test" but not in a sense
of vindication; we say "the excep-
tion proves the rule" as if is a re-
quired part of a rule, rather than
in the original meaning to test tale
was to see if it holds in all cases.
Older translations need to be
read with an eye toward current
'usages of words and ideas. There


are other sources of understand-
ings that are not in the Bible and
yet accepted by many faithful fol-
lowers. The Trinity and an under-
standing of the nature of God is
never expressed in the scriptures
directly; it is the result of a real-
ization of the nature of God and
claimed by some as having no
basis even though the vast major-
ity of Biblical readers believe in
it. Likewise the structure of the
Church and the various officers of
religious bodies is open to ques-
tion.
What can be said, then, about
"getting back to the Bible?" It
has to be read in light of reason
and tradition; allowing for God's
revelation to us long after the
last chapter and verse was writ-
ten. By reading what has come
to the faithful over the centuries,
we don't have to "re-invent the
wheel" but rely on what others


have learned as well. We also
have our contributions to make in
understandings in our time, God
is not done speaking to us.
A seminary student that I en-
countered told me one day that
"none of the problems he en-
countered were exactly like any
of the stories in the Bible nor
were the solutions from Biblical
teachings always a good fit to the
problems." Each person, each sit-
uation, each generation is unique. -
God knows about it and gives us
what is needed to how best to
apply His revelation to where
we live. No simple solutions, no
retreating back to a place that
doesn't exist any more., no ignor-
ing the hard parts; but using what
God has given us; that "ye shall
know the truth and the truth shall
set you free."


Looking inward: Are you sure of your eternal salvation?


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Are you sure of your eternal
salvation? This is a very important
question, and one that will have
lasting eternal consequences.
If you were to die today, do you
know for certain that you would
go to heaven? This is a question
about which we cannot afford
to be wrong, because eternity is
very permanent. One day each
of us will know the true answer
to this question, "For we shall all
stand before the judgement seat
of Christ", Romans 14:10. Every
one of us have two appointments


that have already been made
for us and that we will definitely
keep, whether we want to pr not.
The are, "And as it is appointed
for men to die, but after this the
judgment", Hebrews 9:27. These
two appointments, death and
judgment, cannot be cancelled.
The tragedy of what happened
in New York City, Washington,
D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., on Sep-
tember 11, 2001 shows the uncer-
tainty and brevity of life. God tells
us in James 4:14, "Whereas you
do not know what will happen
tomorrow. For what is your life?
It is even as a vapor that appears
for a little time and the vanishes
away.")


We must no make a error con-
cerning our salvation in following
what "seems right" to us, or that
we "feel in our heart that we are
saved." The Bible says in Prov-
erbs 14:12, "There is a way that
seems right to a man, but its end
is the way of death." Our feelings
are not a safe guide, but only the
Bible is!
What prior assumptions have
we already made about our salva-
tion? Many of these assumptions,
that people make, contradict what
God says in His word to us. All we
have to do is to look around at all
the many differing doctrines and
we can see a great difference.
Our Lord says in Mark 7:7, "And in


vain do they worship Me, teach-
ing as doctrines the command-
ments of men." Our worship is
vain if it comes from doctrines of
men and not from God. Can we
say that all, these many differing
doctrines have come from God?
I think not! I Corinthians 14:33
says that, "God is not the author
of confusion." Or are they from
men? Where else could they have
come from, if they did not come
from God? This becomes a very
serious question. Our worship
becomes vain and useless, if our
doctrines come from men when
they meet in conventions and
conferences to decide what we
are to believe and do.


As the apostle Peter told the
Jewish council in Acts 5:29 "We
ought to obey God rather than
men." Do not believe anything
that I tell you, because we are not
going to be judged by what I say.
Do not believe anything any other
person tells you, because we are
not going to be judged by what
some other persons says. If fact,
we are not going to be judged
by what we personally believe.
On the Day of Judgment we are
going to be judged only by what
the Lord says in the Bible. That is
going to be the only standard for
judgment, for our Lord says in
John 12:48, "The word that I have
spoken will judge him in the last


day". So, if I or any other person
cannot point to it in the Word of
God, in context, then please do
not believe it, because there is too
much at stake-- you eternal soul!
Our soul is worth more than
the whole world and everything
in it. Jesus says in Matthew 16:26,
"For what profit is it to a man if he
gains the whole world, and loses
his own soul? Or what will a man
give in exchange for .his soul?"
Our soul is the part of us that is
going to continue to live on for-
ever throughout all eternity. We
cannot afford to lose it into eter-
nal punishment!


Are we going to continue to fish or should we just cut bait?


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Jesus said, "Follow Me, and I
will make you become fishers of
men." Followers of Christ have
been fishing for people ever since.
Or have we?
Anybody can fish, but it takes
time and preparation and partici-
pation to become an expert fish-
erman. We could talk about fish-
ing all.we want to, but the truth of
the matter is, we will never be a
fisherman until we start fishing.
This fact is highlighted in "A
Plea for Fishing" by John Drescher.
Following is my adaptation of this
story. Once 'there was a group of
people who called themselves
fishermen. And there were many
fish in the waters all around them.
In fact, the whole area was sur-
rounded by streams and lakes
and rivers just filled with fish. And
the fish were hungry.
Year after year, those who
called themselves fishermen met
in meetings and talked about
their call to fish, the abundance
of fish, and how they might go
about fishing. They continu-
ally searched for .new and better
methods of fishing, and for new
and better definitions of fishing.
They sponsored nationwide and
world-wide gatherings to discuss
fishing and to promote fishing,


and to hear about all the new
ways of fishing and new fishing
equipment and new bait that was
discovered.
Training centers were built
whose original and primary pur-
pose was to teach fishermen
how to fish. The plea was that
everyone should be a fisherman
and every fisherman should fish.
Many who felt the call to be fish-
ermen responded. One thing they
didn't do, however, was fish.
They engaged in all kinds of
other occupations. Some said
that they wanted to be part of the
fishing party, but they felt called to
furnish fishing equipment. Oth-
ers felt their job was to relate to
the fish in a good way so the fish
would know the difference be-
tween good and bad fishermen.
Others felt that simply letting. the
fish know they were nice land-
loving neighbors and how loving
and kind they were was enough.
One day, after one stirring
meeting on "The Necessity for
Fishing," one young fellow left
the meeting and went fishing.
The next day he reported he had
caught two outstanding fish.
He was honored for his excel-
lent catch and scheduled to visit
all the big meetings possible to
tell how he did it. So he quit his
fishing in order to have time 'to
tell about the experience to the

other fishermen. Now it's true
that many of the fishermen sac-
rificed and put up with all kinds
of difficulties. Some lived near the
water and bore the smell of dead
fish every day. They received the
ridicule of some who made fun
of their fishermen's clubs and the
fact that they claimed to be fisher-


men yet never fished. They won-
dered about those who felt it was
of little use to attend the weekly"
meetings to talk about fishing.
After all, were they not follow-

gested that those who don't catch
fish were really not fishermen no
matter how much they claimed
to be. Yet it did sound correct. Is
a person a fisherman if year after
year he or she never catches a
fish? Is one following if he or she
isn't fishing?
Cutting bait is important, but


fishing is the purpose. How can
fish bite the bait unless they see
it? How will they see it unless it is
placed in the water? How will the
bait get into the water unless the
fisherman goes to the lake? (Ref-
erence Romans 10:13-15)
We've become good at cutting
bait, now let's go fishing!

sidered fraudulent. In all
cases of questionable val-
ue, such as promises of
guaranteed income from
work-at-home programs if
it sounds too good to be
true, chances are that it is.
If you have questions or
doubts about any ad on
these pages, we advise that
before responding or send-

you check with the Better
Business Bureau at

complaints.
Some 800 and 900 telephone
numbers may require an
extra charge, as well as
long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our

the ads, but occasionally
we may not be aware of the

Notice and Public Explanation of a Proposed Activity
In the 100-Year Floodplain and Wetland
To: All interested Agencies, Groups and Individuals
This is to give notice that Hendry County has conducted an evaluation as required
by Executive Orders 119088 and 11900 In accordance with HUD regulations at 24
CFR 55.20 to determine the potential affect that Its activits In the floodplain and
wetland will have on the environment for the County's two (2) CDBG grants (08DB-
A08 and 08DB-H03) projects.
Hendry County Intends to undertake two 12) projects to be funded by a Florida Small
Cities Cnmmunity Development Block Grants 08DB.AOB and 08DB-HO3). The
County tends to secure the release of Community Development Block Grant funds
under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act, as amended, to un-
dertake the two projects. The release of funds will be oblalned from the Florida De-
partment of Community Affairs, CDBGDivoislon. The proposed-pro]ects Involve the
rehabilitation and/or demolition and replacement construct ion of housing units that
already exist In the floodplain. All work will be In unincorporated Hendry County.
it has determined that it has no practicable alternative other than to proceed with the
work. The rehab/dem/replatcement activities will have no significant impact on the
environment for the following reasons:
The homes to be served are already located in the floodplain, therefore, all work
will be undertaken on existing properties already owned by private homeown-
ers.
Although the projects are located in the 100 year floodplain, the Improvements
cannot be undertaken In any other location due to the scope of the project. There
Is, therefore, no practicable alternative.
The proposed improvements conform to applicable floodplain protection standards.
The proposed action will not affect natural or beneficial floodplain values, and resi-
dents of the community will benefit from the project. All Improvements will be made
to owner-occupied housing units already located In the floodplaln. Failure ta provide
these Improvements could result In continued substandard housing In Hendry
County.
Additional agencies involved In this project Include the Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Hendry
County Building and Zoning Department.
Written comments must be received by Hendry County, Post Office Box 2340, La-
Belle, Florida 33975-2340 ATTN: Ren Zimmerly on or before Tuesday, February
10, 2009. Mr. Zmmerly's may also he contacted by telephone at 863-675-5264 or

Corps adjusts Lake 0 releases


The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers, Jacksonville District began
redistributing Lake Okeechobee
water releases at 7 a.m. on Dec.
15.
Water managers discontinued
releases to the St. Lucie Canal and
adjusted the constant release to
the Caloosahatchee Estuary from
450 to 650 cubic feet per sec-
ond (cfs) as measured from WP
Franklin Lock and Dam (S-79).
The adjustments help maintain
salinity concentrations in both
estuaries, which are appropriate
for sustaining the health of the
estuary.
The on January 19, the lake
stage measured at 13.64 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.
"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 mul-
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


.Mv.


5th Annual Hallelujah


Hoedown at First Christian


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. Interested parties

ter level data and flows for Lake

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.

Harrelle
Continued From Page 1
in making sure the debris was
moved.
Officials plan to use the nature
park, which has a nature trail, for
erecting a recreational football
field for the city's residents.
Harelle has been credited
by the city's commissioners for
overseeing a slew of projects,
including the reconstruction of
U.S. Highway 27, the removal of
the antiquated city tower and the
construction of a railroad cottage,
among others.
Those improvements, accord-
ing to South Bay commissioner
Linda Johnson, have cost the
city approximately $3 million,
which Harelle was able to obtain
through funding.
"Lomax has been a lifesaver
for us," Johnson said.
Johnson lauded Harelle's
ability to improve operations of
various departments in the city,
including public works, commu-
nity redevelopment and human
resources, among others.
"With the limited staff we have
here, an overhaul was needed to
streamline the day-to-day opera-
tions of the city," Johnson said.


Lomax's move to Belle
Glade


Harelle wanted to have the op-
portunity to work in Belle Glade
again.
Happy to see that he was in
the application pool, the majority
of the Belle Glade commissioners
picked Harelle to serve as the city
manager over several candidates.
This action took place during
a special meeting on Oct. 16, sur-
prising many locals in a sense.
Knowing that Harelle's previ-
ous stint here ended with his ar-
rest in 1998 for alleged theft, he
made it a point to have a close
working relationship with the
city's department heads.
With trust previously being the
biggest issue in Harelle's case, he
said that he pays closer attention
to the purchasing aspects of Belle
Glade, in comparison to the past.
All of that, he claims, has aid-
ed in the city recently being able
to save approximately $3,000 in
weekly overtime expenses.
Recently, the city also changed
health insurance carriers, which
according to Harelle, now pro-
vides better coverage for the city's
employees, in addition to saving
taxpayers in excess of $500,000
per year.
What's interesting is that, in
light of the elimination of the pub-
lic works position for the 2008-
2009 fiscal year budget, Harelle
recently brought in Belle Glade
native Mickey McGahee as the
city's new public works director.
McGahee, who previously
worked 17 years for the city before


leaving in 2006, logged in some
time as its assistant public works
director, according to Harelle.
When asked about why the
position needed to be refilled,
Harelle simply said that it covers
several aspects of municipal gov-
ernment, including the need for
maintaining the roads and proper
drainage, to name just two.
The purchasing manager job
has been filled by Lilian Tomeu,
the former assistant city man-
ager.
Also the city's grants coor-
dinator, Tomeu now assumes
dual roles, which proved to be a
streamlining effort on Harelle's
part.
There's still no finance direc-
tor or assistant finance director,
however.
"The people that are in place
have helped pick up the slack,"
Harelle said of the restructured
city staff.
The city commission meetings,
which were previously chaotic at
times, are running smoothly as
well, sometimes lasting for less
than an hour, commissioners re-
port.
"Lomax is moving the city
forward in a positive way," said
Belle Glade mayor Steve Wilson,
who noted Harelle's 'outstanding
relations' with all levels of govern-
ment.
"He's been addressing some
of the city's immediate concerns,
including, recreation for our chil-
dren and infrastructure improve-


Apartment caught in blaze


No injuries reported

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE A multitude
of apartment buildings were set
ablaze during the afternoon hours
of Monday, Jan. 12.
A total of 17 people, including
13 adults and four children, were
reportedly displaced as a result.
It was revealed that the apart-
ment buildings, located on 316 S.
W. Ave. B, were burned down,
along with a dry cleaning busi-
ness that sat below them.
According to Michael Arena,
the county's fire rescue district
battalion chief, the incident was a
two-alarm fire.
It means that extra crews,
which came from as far as Royal


Palm Beach, were needed to ex-
tinguish the flames.
Fire rescue officials received
the call at about 3:18 p.m.
The apartments reportedly
suffered major damages, making
them uninhabitable.
The flames, Arena said, were
put out by crews at about 3:35
p.m;
Fortunately for the dry clean-
ing business, it suffered only mi-
nor damages and was reportedly
reopened the next day.
None of the 17 people report-
edly suffered injuries in the fire.
The district battalion chief ex-
plained how it all went down, as
far as the work was concerned.
"When the crews arrived, they
found smoke coming from the at-
tic," Arena said.
"The apartments were already


evacuated and then we went in
with hose lines and thermo-imag-
es to investigate the fire.
"After that, we just simple put
out the fire and conducted a sal-
vage and overhaul," he contin-
ued.
"In other words, we wanted to
make sure there were no hidden
fires and that no protected items
were destroyed."
Crews were reportedly re-
leased from the scene at about
4:50 p.m., but investigators were
on the scene until 10 p.m. that
night.
At this time, the cause of the
fire is not known.
Fire rescue officials are still in-
vestigating this case.
The 17 individuals slept on cots
at the St. John Missionary Baptist
for temporary shelter.


Cashier robbed at gunpoint


ments."
Harelle revealed that along
with efforts to bringing forth a
community center, he's looking
forward to implementing grants
regarding drainage, street repairs
and designs for the boat locks
near Torry Island, among others.
"With the times being the way
they are right now, we're just try-
ing to seek dollars anywhere we
can," Harelle said.
"We have a lot of opportuni-
ties to move the city forward," the
Belle Glade city manager contin-
ued.

South bay looks ahead
South Bay currently has about
20 staff members on board,
with longtime employee An-
nette Parchment leaving for Belle
Glade.
Parchment now works in Belle
Glade as the city's community re-
development director.
"It's just an opportunity for
us to continue what Lomax and
Annette did with the structure in
place," Johnson said.
South Bay may be without a
city manager right now.
But John Wilson, a city com-
missioner, believes that the posi-
tion will be filled soon.
He expects a decision to be
made on selecting a new city
manager within the next month.


"You never know, you may
have a thoroughbred racer out
there," Commissioner Wilson
said. "We don't want to miss out
on the chance to select the best
candidate for the people," he
continued.
Though South Bay must move
ahead, Wilson will miss what


he labeled as "a super city man-
ager."
"You can't hold someone back
when a better opportunity comes
along," Wilson said.

According to the Palm Beach.,
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
the suspect entered the store and
robbed a cashier at gunpoint.
After the victinr was held with
a black revolver, the unknown
suspect reportedly emptied the
cash register.
Detectives valued the amount
at approximately $1,600.
It was revealed that the suspect
later fled the store on foot, disap-
