Arrests made in two robberies


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Positive rela-
tions between the citizenry and
the sheriff's office can bring re-
sults.
It certainly happened with
a key arrest made by the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO) on Sunday, Jan. 25.
Rodney Joiner, 18, was re-
portedly apprehended by PBSO
deputies in connection with a
robbery that took place at Bob-
by's Market on Jan. 12.'
Though a video recording


showed the defendant robbing
the convenience store, it was a
photo lineup that made the dif-
ference. According to Detective
E. Perez, who headed the case,
a cashier was able to positively
identify the defendant in a lineup
conducted on Jan. 16, just four
days after the incident.
As previously reported, the
unidentified Bobby's Market ca-
shier, robbed at gunpoint, was
held with a black revolver as the
defendant reportedly emptied
the cash register.
Detectives valued the amount
at approximately $1,600.


It was revealed that the sus-
pect later fled the store on foot,
disappearing from the public
view.
"This particular person did
not stay in one place too long,"
Detective Perez said matter-of-
factly. "Sometimes, it could take
us several days to locate a sus-
pect."
Nevertheless, the apprehen-
sion, regardless of how long
it took, represents progress in
community relations, according
to Simon Barnes IV, the PBSO
Captain/Commander of District
Five (unincorporated areas) and

13 (Belle Glade).
"People are tired of being vic-
tims, they're coming forward to
assist us in the arrest and ptos-
ecution of the suspects," Captain
Barnes said.
In addition, Captain. Barnes
revealed that arrests have recent-
ly been made in connection to a
robbery that took place at Quick
Stop Gas Station on Dec. 30.
The Quick Stop suspects have
not been positively identified as
of yet, but nonetheless, Captain
Barnes credits the media for the
latest arrests.
He cited two photos placed in


the Jan. 8 edition of The Sun, in
addition to published reports and
this paper's arrest report page, as
credible leads in this case.
The Bobby's Market defen-
dant is charged with armed rob-
bery to a business with a firearm
and aggravated assault with a
firearm. He was booked into the
Palm Beach County jail on his ar-
rest date. Both crimes are classi-
fied as felonies, according to the
Fla. State Statutes.
If convicted of these charges,
the defendant can face a mini-
mum of 10 years in prison.

Johnson, who went to Presi-

CANAL POINT It was an
incredible trip.
Damon. Weaver, a 10-year-
old student from Canal Point El-
ementary School, can certainly
say that after making the most
of his time in Washington, D.C.
last week.
As he relished in the oppor-
tunity to cover President Barack
Obama's inauguration, there
were many highlights and un-
fortunately, some disappoint-
ments.

Perhaps the biggest triumph
for Damon was that he secured
a spot on CNN's 'barry King
Live' show on the night of Jan.
21, the day after Obama was
sworn in as the nation's 44th
president.
Towards the conclusion of
Damon's five-minute interview
with Larry King, the CNN an-
chor mistakenly said that he
was from Belle Glade.
"I'm from Pahokee," Damon
replied back fearlessly to King.
Noting Damon's desire to
have a football career and then
become a journalist, King sim-
ply was amazed by his fearless-
ness throughout the interview.
"You're going to have this
seat someday after your foot-
ball career," King told Damon.
Just a few seconds later,
fellow CNN anchor Anderson


Cooper, who's show 'AC360'
came on at 10'p.m. that night,
said this about Damon:
"He'll be taking over my job
soon," Cooper said.
Damon goes toe-to-
toe with celebrities
It's interesting to note that
not long ago, Oprah Winfrey,
the talk show host queen, said
that Cooper was the best re-
porter in the nation on her top-
rated talk show.
She may be saying that
about Damon one day, espe-
cially after sharing the spotlight
with him in a two minute inter-
view at the Jan. 18 Roots ball.

exchange with Oprah, which

shooting that took place earlier
this month.
According to Terin Barbera,
a spokeswoman for the Palm

(PBSO), detectives have gained
some leads in pursuit of appre-
hending a second suspect.
Barbera revealed only that
an arrest is imminent, with the
case still being classified as an
open investigation.
What is known, however, is
that Javaris Kennard Wallace,
20,.was one of the subjects ap-
prehended in this case.
The defendant, arrested
by authorities in the morning
hours of Jan. 15, was charged
with a felony count of aggra-

What is an Inguinal Hernia? Could you have one?


By Dr. Dayares Mobed
HRMC General Surgeon
Most people have known or
heard about someone who has
had hernia surgery.
Hernia surgeries are the most
common surgeries performed
today.
Would you be able to recog-
nize a hernia or be familiar with
the signs and symptoms caused
by a hernia?
What is a hernia?
A hernia, in general terms, is a
weakness or tear, by nature or iat-
rogenic (induced), causing pro-
trusion of bowel and fat through
the weakness.
Hernias are classified by their
location.
They can occur at all ages,
and can be congenital (noticed at
birth) or developed later in life.
What is an inguinal hernia? An
inguinal hernia is an abnormal
bulge or protrusion that develops
in the groin area (between the ab-
domen and the thigh).
This type of hernia is by far the
most common hernia.
A mother may notice swelling

Dr. Darayes Mobed.
in her infant son's scrotum, when
her baby is crying; this is a typical
example of an infant hernia.
An inguinal hernia can also
develop when a portion of an in-
ternal organ such as the intestine,
along with fluid, -bulges through
a weakened area in the muscle
wall of the abdomen.


Who is at risk for an inguinal
hernia?
There are certain risk factors,
which may predispose a person
to an inguinal hernia.
Though some patients do not
fall into these categories, the most
common risk factors include:
*Gender Inguinal hernias
are more common in males than
in females.
*Prostate enlargement Pros-
tate enlargement can cause strain-
ing during urination.
"'-Family history Your risk of
inguinal hernia increases if you
have a close relative, such as a
parent or sibling, with the condi-
tion.
*Certain medical conditions -
Having cystic fibrosis, a life-threat-
ening disorder that causes severe
lung damage and often a chronic
cough.
*Chronic cough from smok-
ing- A chronic cough, such as one


which occurs from smoking.
*Chronic constipation This
leads to straining during bowel
movements a common cause
of inguinal hernias.
*Excess weight Being mod-
erately to severely overweight can
put extra pressure on your abdo-
men.
Multiple Pregnancies Mul-
tiple pregnancies can weaken the
abdominal muscles and cause
increased pressure inside your
abdomen.
*Certain occupations Having
a job that requires standing for
long periods or doing heavy lift-
ing and physical labor increases
your risk.
Premature birth Infants who
are born sooner than normal.
*History of prior hernia sur-
geries If you've had one inguinal
hernia, it's much more likely that
you'll eventually develop another

one usually on the opposite
side.
What are the symptoms of in-
guinal hernia?
Inguinal hernias are charac-
terized by pain or a bulge in the
groin area when coughing, sneez-
ing, lifting or straining.
The swelling may be reduced
or even disappear when lying
down. In an infant, the hernia is
noticed as a swelling in the scro-
tum, when the baby is crying.
How is an inguinal hernia
treated?
There are various methods
and timings for hernia treatment
or repair.
If the hernia can be reduced or
pushed back and the symptoms
disappear, the surgery can be per-
formed electively.
If the hernia continues to be
painful and cannot be reduced,
there is a potential for bowel
strangulation, and hernia surgery
becomes an emergency.
Hernia repair in an infant or
child is done by surgically clos-
ing the defect of the hernia: In an
adult, however, a synthetic inert


mesh is overlaid on the defect for
a stronger repair.
Inguinal hernia surgery can
be performed by a small incision
in the groin or laparoscopically
through multiple tiny incisions
and the use of a camera.
Recovering from surgery -
Hernia surgeries are performed
on an outpatient basis, whereby
the patient is able to walk soon
after the procedure.
There are no dietary restric-
tions, and patients can resume
their regular activities within a
few days.
An inguinal hernia is one of
the many types of hernias. Other
types include: femoral, ventral,
umbilical, hiatal, and intra-ab-
dominal hernias. I will elaborate
on these types of hernias at a later
date.

Letters to the Editor


I Love Pahokee Day
Well, as we all know, talk is
cheap and there are plenty of neg-
ative people in this community to
keep the future price of talk way
down there.
When Wayne was elected,
there was such a surge of excite-
ment in the air.
We had that "Meeting of the
Minds" meeting that went no-
where, even though Ted and ev-
eryone involved did their.best.
We have had town hall meet-
ings for the negative people in
town to complain and complain
and complain.
We have talked about the suc-
cesses of past events such as our
Grassy Waters Festivals and oth-
ers, yet here we sit at the begin-
ning of another year crying about
so much that we have lost track of
what positive thoughts and ideas
there are all over this community.
For me, this past Christmas
was much like a Norman Rock-
well moment.
We wanted to create an old-
fashioned Christmas and although
we had to jump political and oth-
er hurdles, we came together to
make it happen.
One person described that
,evening to us as "magical."


Our problem seems to be that
we have been down so long that
we just can't muster the energy to
start that long uphill trek that will
be the new "re-lifeing" of Paho-
kee. What can we do ?
We can come together once
again and put on the first of a new
generation of "I Love Pahokee"
festivals. .
It is no secret that just about
everyone who lives here actually
does love Pahokee but we are so
hesitant to let the world know it.
We can beg for money and
help from the county and state
but if all they ever see us doing is
holding out that hand for the pit-
tance we might receive, then our
future is lost.
The "powers that be" want to
see us work for our community.
Perhaps they see us as undeserv-
ing and lazy. It's true.
I am game to help create, plan,
beg, work, advertise, welcome

A Historical Perspective on Spanish Florida


Missions in South
Florida

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The lone, scholarly priest stood
at the edge of the lagoon, staring
across the sparkling, tropical wa-
ters until sea and sky merged as
one on the blue horizon.
The gaze remained fixed for
several minutes, -as his mind
and spirit breached all earthly
obstacles and rose to terrestrial
heights.
The heavenly journey eluded
him when a slight noise awak-
ened him to a beautiful, but cruel
world.
The dreamy, sedated look,
was replaced with an anguished
expression that 'crept across his
face.
Ocean borne winds had car-
ried the strange, muffled sound
across the water's edge, alerting
him to danger.
Tranquil eyes recoiled in hor-
ror at the sight of murderous men
emerging from dugouts, moving
swiftly to block his escape route
to the fort.
He stood mesmerized, para-
lyzed by a cold, ruthless fear that
coiled around his body, rendering
him immobile.
The dreadful shock was brief,
and primeval instincts overpow-
ered the fear.


In seconds, a will to live fo-
cused his entire being on the fort,
so close and yet so far.
Arms flew and legs raced, kick-
ing up puffs of sand as he sprinted
for his life.
Cries of anger echoed across
the Island, when the Indians real-
ized he was escaping.
Entering the fort, he collapsed
in a daze, gasping for air, while
alerted soldiers manned the fort
walls.
This fictitious tall tale reveals
the harsh life that men of the cloth
endured in "La Florida."
It is time to take "A Walk in
The Past" and read about the
early Spanish missions in south
Florida.
In 1566, Pedro Menendez de
Aviles, the newly appointed gov-
ernor of Florida, met with King
Carlos, the Calusa cacique, in the
province of Calus.
He rescued our ole friend Fon-
tanedo, several female mestizoes
(Indian and European mix) and
one female black.
Menendez negotiated and es-
tablished a temporary peace be-
tween the Spanish and Calusa,
but it came at a high price.
Carlos demanded he marry
his sister, and Menendez capitu-
lated to his demands because he
hoped the marriage would help
consolidate a peaceful truce.
He returned to Cuba with his
. bride and the castaways.
The marriage was only a politi-


cal arrangement, so he made ar-
rangements for her to get housing
and religious training.
Menendez didn't return im-
mediately, but sent an expedition,
under the command of Captain
Reinoso, to build a fort and set-
tlement at King Carlos's village,
called St. Anthony, near present
day Charlotte Harbor.
Captain Reinoso was also
instructed to explore Lake
Mayaimis, known today as Lake
Okeechobee.
Menendez was hoping there
was a natural waterway crossing
south Florida, so that ships could
avoid the treacherous Florida
Straits.
In 1567, Menendez returned to
the province of Calus and found
an unhappy alliance between the
Spanish and Calusa.
The truce was further threat-
ened when Menendez insisted
that king Carlos make peace with
the Calusa's long time enemies,
the Tocobaga Indians of Tampa
Bay.
The real threat to peace came
from a Jesuit priest called Father
Juan Rogel.
King Phillip II had requested
priests for "La Florida," and Me-
nendez complied.
Father Rogel told the Calusa
Indians that it was wrong to wor-
ship graven images and practice
polygamy.
Centuries of tradition and reli-
gion were now being challenged


by a strange Spaniard and a
stranger religion.
King Carlos and the Calusa
people were furious when told
they must give up their idols.
The Calusa men got down
right testy when told they could
have only one wife.
Tensions were running high
between the Spaniards and Indi-
ans, so Menendez relocated the
fort to a neighboring island before
he returned to Cuba.
Casique Carlos's hate for the
Jesuit priest increased. Father Ro-
gel wrote in his journal, "Carlos
had a great hate against me es-
pecially because I discredited and
spoke evil about his idols.
"I did not go out more than
once each day for a thing that
could not be avoided and did not
go further than a stone's throw
from the fort."
Father Rogel wasn't winning
souls and feared his own might
soon soar from its earthly bonds.
He had lived at the fort for one
month, when a ship arrived with
supplies.
The ship's captain told Father
Rogel that the Spanish garrison
at Tampa Bay was in dire need-of
supplies.
Father Rogel elected to return
to Cuba and help organize relief
for the beleaguered garrison.
Captain Reinoso reportedly
discovered (three days after Fa-
ther Rogel took leave for Cuba)
that Cacique Carlos was plotting


to massacre the Spanish. -
The Spaniards claimed some
of the Calusa weren't happy with
Cacique Carlos and divulged his
plan to them.
Reinoso invited Carlos to the
fort.
Carlos came with two village
headmen, and Reinoso executed
all three.
The Spaniards selected a Calu-
sa rebel leader called Felipe to be
the next Cacique.
Felipe was a high ranking Calu-
sa, who claimed that he was the
rightful heir to the title Cacique.
The Spaniards reported that
the transfer of Calusa power to
Casique Felipe made life easier
for them.
Cacique Felipe experienced a
harder transition. Several Calusa
chiefs were unhappy with his cor-
onation and made new alliances
with the Togobagos Indians.
Apparently, no one was happy
with the new Cacique except the
Spaniards.
Captain Reinoso took a short
visit to Cuba in 1567, and returned
to find Cacique Felipe holding a
celebration.
Cacique Felipe's followers
were dancing with the heads
of four beheaded Calusa Indian
leaders that disapproved Cacique
Felipe's new title.
During his reign, Felipe killed
more than 15 Calusa leaders to
, protect his position and life.
Captain Reinoso knew his


decision to appoint Felipe as the
new Cacique wasn't popular with
the Calusa.
He said, "Because matters in
that province have come to such
a pass and have been so disposed
that the reign and life of that caci-
que depends on the Christians not
withdrawing their support from
him because he is so disliked by
so many caciques and captains
among his vassals that, were it
not for the favor and support that
he enjoys among the Christians,
they would have killed him quite
a while ago."
There will be more "Tale
Tales" in next week's edition "A
Walk in The Past" when Spanish
missions and priest clash with the
Calusa culture.

story.

Annual National Signing Day coming on February 4


Well over 15 area ,
seniors set to commit
on Super Wednesday

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION In just
six days, a slew of high school
football athletes will sign their let-
ters of intent.
Known as National Signing
Day, four of five area school will
be set to participate in this extrav-
aganza.
Unfortunately for Moore Ha-
ven, none of its seniors have been
offered by colleges as of yet.
Xavier Fagan, who, according
to MaxPreps.com, led the state
with 1,117 receiving yards to
end the regular season last year,
surprisingly has only a few small
schools even taking a look at him
at this time.
Jason Bond, the Terriers head
coach, was tight lipped on what
those schools were.
Hopefully, Fagan and his fel-
low outgoing seniors can pick
up offers at some point down the
line.
That's not bad news at all, giv-
en the fact that some of the Class
of 2008's best athletes received
exactly zero offers before signing
day.
One could look no further than
Kardell Dunning, who graduated
from Glades Central High School
in 2008.
Arguably one of the best cor-
nerbacks in the state during his
senior season, Dunning didn't
receive any offers before the big
day,
Nevertheless, his patience
more than paid off when last
spring, Michigan and Louisville
were fighting hard for his ser-
vices.
Thanks to Henry Cook, Glades
Central's athletic director, Dun-'
ning's game film was put on You-
Tube and Rivals.com, generating
thousands 6f hits.
It did happen after signing day,
but the premise of all that is just
one thing.
Colleges will find a talented
athlete, no matter what it takes.
After taking visits to Louisville
and Michigan during the spring,
Dunning was amazed by how the
college coaches treated him.
But in the end, Dunning chose
Louisville over Michigan partly
because he was promised an op-
portunity to start at cornerback
there.
Dunning, working his way
into Louisville's starting rotation,
made the possibility a reality,
when he made his debut against
West Virginia last season.
Firmly poised to make a big-
ger impact for the Cardinals in
his next three seasons, Dunning
may be able to look at the disap-
pointment and use it as a prime
opportunity to make it to the NFL,.
possibly in 2012.
Big day ahead at Glades
Central
It could be argued that almost
all of the excitement on Super
-Wednesday will come. from
Glades Central.
Given the fact that no less than
20 Division I-caliber athletes are
on the team, only three of them
seem firmly committed to their


college choices at this time.
During this time last year, Ri-'
vals.com four-star offensive line-
man Henry Orelus committed to
LSU, which seemingly ended any
suspense for the prospect.
But in the summer, Orelus, for.
reasons unknown, de-committed
from LSU and switched to Florida
State University.
It's a known fact that players
are only orally committed un-
til signing day, so making a de-
commit will not bring any conse-
quences for a college prospect in
question.
This also applied for fellow
teammate Rantavious Wooten,
a Rivals.com four-star wideout
who's rated as the 'No. 30 overall
player in the state.
While Wooten announced his
oral commitment to LSU just
'hours before Glades Central's
Aug. 29 Kickoff Classic game
against Dillard he later switched
his allegiance to the University of
Georgia.
Again, it's not uncommon for
. a top flight athlete to do such a
thing.
In the end, Wooten, Orelus
and others are just making sure
that they're making the best col-
lege decision for them.
That's too bad for LSU, who
just lost two of the nation's top
prospects.
Outgoing senior James Melton,
a backup running back to fellow
classmate Antonio McCloude,
quietly made his college commit-
ment to Alabama State University
back in the fall.
Though it was Melton's only
official offer, he quickly accepted
the scholarship and hasn't looked
back since.
Quite a few other Glades Cen-
tral seniors have a great chance
of signing letters of intent next
Wednesday.
It won't be a surprise if these
athletes male official commit-
ments on Feb. 4:
Antonio McCloude
Rupert Bryan
Jim Knowles
Vincent Harper
Emmanuel Rackard
Robert Ferguson
Artavious Dowdell
Cartavious Baldwin
There could be even more
Glades Central signees, though it
won't be absolutely certain until
the big day.
Clewiston and Glades
Day seem set
Over at Tiger Country, it's
looking like there will be just one
player on track to sign the papers
next week.
Joe Roth, Clewiston's head
coach, said Darris Hughes, the
Tigers first ever 2,000-yard rusher,
will likely commit to Georgia State
University.
It's actually surprising that
Hughes had just one offer, consid-
ering the record-breaking season
he had.
With that being said, the
Clewiston coaching staff took
a deliberate approach in how
they'll showcase their seniors to
colleges nationwide.
Hard at work since the Oct. 17
bye week, Roth and his coaches
started taking the time out to
make game film for each of their
seniors.
The coaching staff, assigned to


conduct searches on each college
from Division 1, I, 11II and JUCO
(junior college), has recently
sent off tapes, hoping that
more outgoing seniors can obtain
offers down the line.
"The kids have worked very
hard for me all season long," Roth
said.
"Now, it's my time to pay them
back, I owe it to them."
As for Glades Day, it looks to
be busier than last year.
Jimbo Arnold, who currently
plays for Troy University, was the
only one who committed on sign-
ing day.
Jarrett Swaby (UCF) has left
for college earlier this month,
while Bo Schlecter recently made
an oral commitment to Georgia
State.
If everything goes as planned,
Hughes and Schlecter will be
teammates at Georgia State in the
future.
Interestingly, Georgia State will
not be fielding a football team un-
til the 2010 season.
In essence, academics will be
the key focus for both of them as
they become college freshmen.
De'Andres Jackson, who
scored a 29 on his ACT exam
and has a 3.5 grade poirit average
(GPA), received several college
offers to date.
The all-around athlete, who
took a college visit to Georgetown
University earlier this month, has
also been offered by Brown Uni-
versity and Air'Force, among oth-
ers.
No one will know where Jack-
son will go until signing day.
Cody Dionne and Josh Cuth-
bert are the two others who may
officially commit for Glades Day
next week.
"Any college will be happy that
they land kids of their caliber,"
Glades Day Gators coach Pete
Walker said of his seniors.
"All of them are great athletes
and are men of character."
Pahokee prospects are
already set
Brandin Hawthorne and
Vincent Smith, both Michigan.
commits, will sign their letter of
intents in Ann Arbor, Mich., ac-
cording to Pahokee head coach
Blaze Thompson.
The duo made their oral com-
mitments on Aug. 29, just one day
before their Kickoff Classic game
against Olive Branch, Miss.
The fateful news conference,
along with Nu'Keese Richardson
May 29 commitment to Florida,
proved to be among the state's
most exciting college announce-
ments in recent memory.
Later in the fall, Jacquan Bent-
ley, the Blue Devils former center,
made a commitment to Alabama
St.
Bentley will be joining Melton
as teammates for the next four
years, making for what's yet an-
other Glades Central-Pahokee
connection in college.
That's somewhat akin to what
Deonte Thompson (Glades Cen-
tral) and Janoris Jenkins (Paho-
kee) accomplished, as both cur-
rently play for national champion
Florida.
Jarvis Byrd, a four-star corner-
back who is Rivals.com's No. 41
player in the state, committed to
North Carolina State in the fall, as
well.


After taking a visit there re-
cently, he reportedly liked the
campus so much, that not even
offers from Wake Forest or Flori-
da State will change his mind.
Carlos Lammons, a defensive
back, recently announced that
he'll be going to the University of
Buffalo.
That leaves Willie Hickman,
who may choose Florida Atlantic
University next week as he con-
tinues to play cornerback on the
next level.
"There are a number of boys
that should be going to Division


I, but scholarship offers haven't
come in yet," Thompson said of
the remaining seniors.
Considering the fact that Pa-
hokee had 26 seniors on the 2008
team, it's somewhat surprising
that players such as Dexter Hol-
mes, Fontaine Hopson, Curtis
Daley, Tim Baker and Donald
Hester haven't been given a seri-
ous look.
As for Richardson, he'll likely
join Byrd, Lammons, Hickman
and Bentley on the signing ta-
ble next week at Pahokee High
School.


The All-American, unfortu-
nately, didn't leave for Florida as
previously planned.
"Most people still have to fin-
ish the year out and get cleared to
go to college," Thompson said.
"It just didn't happen for
Nu'Keese yet."
When it's all said and done,
Thompson seems firmly set on
what's to come next week.
"We're trying to get every-
body offers, but the reality is that
the ones who had offers already
will be signing," Thompson said.

NOTICE
Independent Newspapers will
never accept any advertise-
ment that is illegal or con-
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-
ing money ahead of time,
you check with the Better
Business Bureau at
772-878-2010 for previous
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
reader of these charges in
the ads, but occasionally
we may not be aware of the
charges. Therefore, if you
call a number out of your
area, use caution.

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.

Eat the frog first thing in the morning


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A minister wrote in his weekly
column in the church newsletter
that he was setting goals for the
new year.
One of his goals was to clean
up his desk. Another of his goals
was to find last year's goals.
Someone once shared, "Life
is not measured by the number
of breaths we take, but by the
moments that take our breath
away."
The problem is that many of
us get so busy taking breaths that
we miss out on breath taking mo-
ments.


Focusing on and organizing
parts of our jobs and life can help
us gain the time we need for those
special moments and people in
our live.
I recently received five strate-
gies that might help us make the
most of our time and thus the
most of our lives.
They're too good not to share.
First, "Eat the Frog."
Mark Twain said if you eat a
frog first thing in the morning that
will probably be the worst thing
you do all day.
So, if we start our day by tack-
ling an important task, especially
if it is a task we aren't crazy about,
then the worst will be behind us,


and we realize a sense of free-
dom.
Second, "Con-crastinate."
If pro-crastinating means put-
ting things off, con-crastinating
should be doing things immedi-
ately.
Work in 15 minute increments.
If there is a task you don't like, set
a timer and do it for 15 minutes.
At the end of 15 minutes, you
will be amazed at how much
you've accomplished.
At that point, either stop or if
you have built up some momen-
tum, keep going.
Third, nix the multi-tasking.
We pride ourselves on being able
to do two, three, or four things at


once, and that is fine if the activi-
ties are fairly simple, like stuffing
envelopes while on a conference
call or eating lunch while reading
e-mail.
But if at least one of the tasks
is more complicated, like putting
together a PowerPoint presenta-
tion or writing a report, then it
deserves our full attention.
We would be best served to
set aside a period of time that we
can devote to that one task with-
out interruption.
People tend to make fewer
mistakes and, get more done in
less time when they do this.
Fourth, "Buddy Up."
We don't always have to do


everything ourselves. Many hands
make light work and share the
load.
In addition, the support and
companionship is an added bless-
ing that enables more work get
done in less amount of time.
Furthermore, science has
shown we need the equivalent
of 17 good affirmations a day
through appropriate hugs, hand-
shakes, or verbal encourage-
ments in order to thrive.
We do that through teamwork
and connecting with people.
Fifth, plan it out.
A few minutes of planning canrr
save us hours of time. First thing
in the morning or at the end of the


day, take a few minutes to plan.
It doesn't have to be a long
formal process, all we need to
do is just jot down the things we
want to do that day or the next.
It's amazing how much we can
accomplish when we do this.
Let me close with another
shared insight.
The key to abetter life: Com-
plain less, appreciate more.
Whine less, laugh more.
Talk less, listen more. Want
less, give more.
Hate less, love more. Scold
less, praise more. Fear less, hope
more. Trust God, be blessed.


It is said that there are two roads to eternity


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Christ; who is all knowing,.tells
us that many people are going to
be lost, but only few are going to
be saved.
In Matthew 7:13-14 He says,
"Enter by the narrow gate: for
wide is the gate, and broad is the
way, that leads to destruction,
and there are many who go in by
it. Because narrow is the gate and
difficult is the way which leads to'
life; and there are few who find
it."


Now this gets my attention.
According to the Bible the major-.
ity of people will be lost. We must
take this warning from God at
face value.
There are only two roads to
eternity and we are on one or
the other. According to what the
Lord says, only few will make it to
Heaven, but the vast majority will
be lost in eternal punishment.
This is both frightening and
sad. I don't consider myself self-
ish, but I certainly want to be
Among the few who are saved,
don't you?
We make the choice ourselves


as to where we will spend eterni-
ty. We are free moral agents. This
is how we differ from animals.
We have been made in the image
of God. Genesis 1:26 says, "Then
God said let Us make man in Our
image".
Also in Genesis 2:7 we read,.
"And the 'Lord God formed man
of the dust of the ground, and
breathed into his nostrils the
breath of life; and man became a
living soul."
Yes, we possess a soul that will
live forever in one of two places.
God does not want anyone to
be lost, but the choice is ours. In


II Peter 3:9 we read, "The Lord is
not slack concerning His promise,
as some count slackness, but is
long suffering toward us, not will-
ing that any should perish but that
all should come to repentance".
God does not want us to go
into eternal punishment. He is
not going to force usto serve
Him, otherwise we would be
mere robots. I Timothy 2:4 says
concerning God, "Who desires all
men to be saved, and to come to
the knowledge of the truth."
It is God's will that all be saved,
but we know that is not going to
happen. We have, already seen


that only few are going to be self to blame.
saved and the majority are going Also, as the verse says, before
to be losty. we can be saved, we must "come
What is'your eternal destiny?
If you miss Heaven, you will be to the knowledge of the truth."
thrown into the eternal fires of Jesus says in John 8:32 "And
Hell. ye shall know the truth, and the
One of the saddest things truth shall make you free."
about going to Hell is the fact that What is the truth that will make
it could have been avoided. The What is the truth that will make
majority of people will be lost in us free? -In John 17:17 Jesus says,
spite of what the Lord has done. "Sanctify them by your truth.
A person who goes to Hell is Your word is truth." So the
Shis own worst enemy. Hell is not te truth that will
what God does to us, but. Hell is word of God is the truth that will
what we do to ourselves. If one maketis free so that we can go to
ends up in Hell, he only has him- Heaven."


The No "Domestic Violence Theory" of religion


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Jesus said "Small is the gate
and narrow is the road that leads
to life and only a few find it (Mat-
thew 7:14)."
Jesus also said "Take my yoke
upon you and learn from me, for
I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your
souls. For my yoke is easy and my
burden is light (Matthew 11:28-
30).".
Which is.it?
The first passage is .intimidat-
ing, fear-provoking, scary and
lea. es people with the idea that
thqir greatest chance is they on'tl
make it.

a great shot at making it."
,There are those who dwell on
the first passages and others like it
(usually drawing heavily from the
Old Testament without reading it
in a New Testament context.)
It's usually about scaring
people into "doing it my way, or
else!"
It as if a "God will get you"


attitude will bring people in and
teach them about God's love for
them.
There is no understanding of
God-given human' nature. Can
you imagine scaring somebody
into loving you?
I guess this is a "domestic
violence theory" of religion! You
don't beat up on somebody until
they love you.
It lacks a respect for persons.

them to be with all of their imper-

This is Christian love, healing
love, the love that casts out fears.
Jesus healed ten lepers, only
,one returns to give thanks (Luke
17;11ff).
Does He say to the other nine
"You're going to be sick again!"?
Of course not!
This- is an outpouring act of
love with no expectation of return
and no threats that "God'll getcha

: what may or may not come after-
ward.
Religion that harangues, belit-
tles, scares, makes veiled or not-
so-veiled threats doesn't show
any understanding or respect for
the human condition or what the
incarnation was all about.
Such an approach will have
some impact in the short run
but eventually will lead to people
,turning off and ignoring what is
being said.
The gospel message is "What


can I do to help?" and then doing
it.
It is rooted in why the Lord
came in the first place; to save
and to heal.
One of the journals for clergy
shared an account of a minister
who preached "hellfire and dam-
nation' and had a young couple
come to him after they found
themselves in a difficult situation.
As he was berating and lec-
turing, he said that something
crossed his mind.

"What if it was my daughter

He began to re-think what he
was doing, had done, and asked
himself seriously 'What's wrong
with this picture?"
After much soul-searching and
exploring, he began to find other
answers, other ways to really be

He changed .his message, and
then something really great hap:-


He was happier in his ministry,
he felt good about what he was
doing, people responded differ-

the area, local leaders have main-
tained that jobs need to be cre-
ated as soon as possible.
The Tri-Cities Coalition has
been pushing for an inland port
to come to the Glades in the past
couple of years.
According to Pahokee mayor
Wayne Whitaker, it's priority
number one for the entire area.
Though the Palm Beach Coun-
ty commissioners supported
plans for an inland port this past
Sep. 9, he realizes that the com-
petition for it is. fierce.
Martin County, as well as Hen-
dry County, are two key competi-
tors that are trying to obtain the


coveted commodity, which is pro-
jected to bring some 35,000 jobs
to prospective workers.
Belle Glade mayor Steve Wil-
son, who agrees with Whitaker
on the need for an inland port,
said that road improvements
should be considered as a 're-
gional approach' as well.
Given the fact that many of the
area's streets and roadways are in
need of repairs, it may be neces-
sary.
"We must not work for our
own personal interests," Wilson
said.
"We need to show the citizens
out there that we're getting their
needs met."
On Monday, it was reported by
a host of national media outlets
that over 68,000 jobs were lost in
a single day the most ever in U.S.


history.
The layoffs notwithstanding,
Johnson is banking on Obama's
established relations with the
area as a catalyst in receiving a
part of the proposed $825 billion
stimulus package by his adminis-
tration.
"I believe Obama is a man of
his word," Johnson said.
"If we, on the local level, can
present a cohesive regional plat-
form to higher levels .of govern-
ment, we can take our communi-
ties to a whole new level.".
Johnson added that with the
possibility of an inland port, along
with the opening of Lakeside
Regional Hospital, among other
projects, the area could be the
'next Royal Palm Beach and Wel-
lington' in the future.
But the South Bay commis-'


sioner readily recognizes that the
sugar companies U.S. Sugar,
Florida Crystals and Sugar Cane
Growers Cooperative of America
- need to support the municipali-
ties in the quest to move ahead.
"I don't think it's going to be
a problem," Johnson said of the
sugar entities.
"The sugar companies depend
of what's going on in the cities,"
she continued.
"They're connected to us, it's
like a marriage."
If that's the case, then the rela-
tionship is seemingly on the rocks
right now.


The recent U.S. Sugar land ac-
quisition, which was approved to
be bought by the state for well
over $1 billion, is set to claim as
many as 1,700 jobs in the next
few years.
Nevertheless, Johnson realizes
in order for economic sustainabil-
ity to occur here, leadership ac-
countability must first be fostered
and maintained in the eyes of its
constituents.
"We must establish positive
relationships with all of our lead-
ers," Johnson said.
"It should be ongoing as we
try to get our plans moving for-


ward."
That being said, stability be-
tween leadership and its citizens
will most likely be the biggest sell-
ing point for future business and
housing developments to come
to the area.
"People want to invest in
something that's stable," John-
son said.
"We must do what's necessary
to benefit everyone, we cant leave
anyone out," she continued.
"Any problem can be solved at
this point, there is no excuse."

Shooting

vated assault with a firearm.
As previously reported, three
shootings took place in a span of
just 10 minutes.
Christopher Williams, 31, was
shot in the shoulder at 7:53 p.m.
that night.
The incident reportedly took
place at 438 Rardin Ave.
Just seven minutes later, at 8


p.m., an unidentified woman was
shot just outside her residence at
398 Cypress Ave.
It was revealed that she suf-
fered no injuries, as a result,
though initial reports claimed she
was shot in her hand.
Authorities determined that
the woman, who heard gunshots
outside her home, went to the
front door and discovered a bullet
hole there.
The bullet reportedly was lying
just inside the front door on the
woman's floor.


At 8:03 p.m., Charlie Bens,
26, was shot in his left hand after
walking in the area of the Parker
Building (169 Adam Place).
That shooting reportedly took
place at 314 Rardin Ave.
It was determined that the vic-
tim in the Parker Building incident
was shot multiple times, with one
of those bullets striking his hand.
No one reportedly suffered se-
rious injuries as a result of these
incidents.

his classmate, Alysia Boldin,
helped video tape.
"Oprah, did you know I could
drive?" Damon asked her.
"Did you know that's illegal?"
Oprah swiped back at him half-
jokingly.
Oprah then took Damon's
microphone from his and said
that she's not used to being inter-
viewed.
Oprah asked Damon a series
of questions,. including how he
felt about Obama becoming the
next president.
Damon responded that when
he saw the electoral votes coming
in on Nov. 4, he knew.
"I felt that way for a while
now," Oprah said to Damon.
At the Roots Ball, Damon also
got a chance to interview the likes
of Spike Lee, Chris Tucker, John
Singleton and Samuel L. Jackson,
among others.
Damon (as he went up to
Samuel L. Jackson): "Do you
make more than $250,000?"
Samuel Jackson (replying
to Damon): "Yes I do, and my
taxes will go up." (Laughs out
loud)
Those exchanges may have set
the stage for the exclusive Damon
gained on Entertainment Tonight
on last Friday night (Jan. 23).
Starring as a guest reporter,
camera views made it look as if
he was reporting live from Wash-
ington, D.C.
The segment impressed Enter-
tainment Tonight host Mary Hart.
"Obama, I want to interview
you," Damon yelled on the steps
of the White House during the
viewing.
According to Brian Zimmer-
man, Damon's media advisor, a
large group of people crowded
Damon as it happened.
It chronicled Damon's quest
to make it to Obama's inaugura-
tion ceremony, highlighted by his
interviews with Winfrey and Vice-
President Joe Biden, which he'll
be forever remembered for.
Throughout Damon's time
there, it proved to be mostly a
working trip, as Zimmerman pre-
dicted would happen.
Not only did Damon gain air-
time on CNN, he also was seen
nationally on Fox News Network,
MSNBC, BET, and CBS, among
other major television networks.
He even got to sit down with
Colin Powell in CNN's 'The Green
Room.'
The majority of Damon's na-
tionally televised interviews came
the day after Obama's inaugura-
tion.

' In the end, Damon was able to,
pass out his own specially made
business cards to hundreds of
individuals, celebrities and non-
celebrities alike.
Zimme'rman said that many
were laughing at the fact Damon
came across as an actual reporter,
though almost everyone who got
to meet him came away simply
astonished.
"A lot of people actually asked
Damon to sign an autograph on
the business card," Zimmerman
said.
"Those individuals will never
forget Damon," he continued.
"Damon even gave it to Oprah
and she put in her purse."
Crowds line up for
Obama's swearing-in
January 20, 2009 will be re-
membered by Damon in two
ways:
He couldn't get in Obama's
inauguration parade, nor could
he enter into the swearing-in cer-
emony.
In all fairness, there were close
to two million people in the na-
tion's capital on the frigid day.
Like thousands of people on
Jan. 20, Damon was one of the
many denied access by security
officials.
Waking up at about 5 a.m.,
Damon and his party (Alysia,
Zimmerman, Damon and Alysia's
mothers and Slydell) hoped they
could beat the crowds.
En route to the nation's capi-
tal via train, they arrived at about
7:30 a.m.
Unfortunately, it proved to be
too late, as they were in line for
more than four hours.
"We were told that there were
screening issues," Zimmerman
said of the failed access.
"Once I knew we couldn't get
in, we just left."
Damon's team then walked
into BET studios, where he would
be interviewed by Jeff Johnson.
Damon's interview was tele-
cast live during the inauguration
festivities that day.
After the interview, the team
traveled back to their hotel rooms
and later changed clothes en
route to ABC studios.
The group spent some time
with ABC's Diane Sawyer, who
was instrumental in the special
airing of '20/20' that night, which
featured Damon,'
On the night of the inaugura-
tion, Damon got to go to a BET
ball.
"We weren't even going to go
to that one, but we just decided
on that the last minute," Zimmer-
man said.

future plans.
Damon did get some down time
in Washington, D.C.
Damon had two opportuni-
ties to be in the indoor pool at the
Crispus City Hilton Hotel, where
he and his party stayed.
"Damon said he liked that part
the most," Zimmerman said.
"He's a kid, that's what he'll
remember."
Before the group headed
home on Jan. 25, they didn't for-
get to visit landmarks such as the
Smithsonian Museum and the
Aerospace Museum, to name just
two.
When Damon and his party
arrived at Palm Beach Interna-
tional Airport, Channel 5 and 12
TV networks took advantage of
highlighting his time in the na-
tion's capital.
The telecast was seen locally
that night, just hours before he
had to go back to school and
prepare for his upcoming FCAT
exams,
The media coverage, Zimmer-
man believes, will slow down for
a while,.
What about Damon's chances
of appearing on Oprah someday?
"I think Oprah's people would
have called me by now if they
wanted to have Damon on," Zim-
merman said.
"They might be waiting from
when Damon actually interviews
Obama, I don't know."
Zimmerman, though some-
what disappointed that Damon
didn't get to have the big inter-
view, kept the situation in per-
spective.
"President Obama has a lot of
stuff to take care of right now,"
Zimmerman continued.
"It probably wouldn't have
looked good on Obama right now
if he had some spare time to do a
fun interview with Damon."
Nevertheless, Zimmerman is
proud of how Damon handled
himself in the nation's capital, es-
pecially when dealing with King.
"Everybody's proud of where
they're from," Zimmerman said.
"Damon takes pride in being
from Pahokee and he clearly let
Larry King know that," he contin-
ued.
"I'm sure everybody in the
Glades was laughing when they
saw that."

ARM(ed) But Not Dangerous
The events of the last few years have
created the perception that all ARMs
(Adjustable Rate Mortgages) are
dangerous they're not. There are
times when an ARM is the right loan
for the situation. For instance, a couple
purchasing a home that plans to sell and
upgrade in a few years would most likely
benefit from a shorter term ARM loan.
It's a matter of applying common sense
lending practices and selecting the right
loan to fit the needs of the borrower.

Technology & Convenience
A common misconception is that an
online-only lender will save a home
buyer money. Although the' Internet
is ideal for gathering information, the
drawbacks of working with an online-
only lender outweigh the advantages.
To complement our loan services,
Seacoast has convenient online tools
for home buyers including a mortgage
calculator and application for those
who want online convenience. However
you choose to apply, local, dedicated
mortgage loan officers are available to
assist you with the application process
in person at your home or office, at a
Seacoast office or over the telephone.
Seacoast's professional mortgage
lenders are prepared to understand your
current economic and housing needs, to
answer your questions and make quick
local decisions. We disclose all terms
and conditions up front, and provide
a single point of contact throughout
the process, so there are no surprises at
closing. Our promise to you is simple -
whether you apply online or in person,
there's nothing "mechanical" about the
way you'll be treated as a customer.

Come to Seacoast feel good about
your bank.
