Holmes: Sweet taste of victory

Santonio Holmes raises his hands in celebration after a heart-stopping play that robbed
the Cardinals of their chance at Super Bowl victory.


Belle Glade's Holmes



wins Super Bowl MVP


Pahokee's Boldin:
8 catches, 84 yards
for Cardinals in 27-
23 loss to Steelers
By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
Super Bowl XLIII was, in
some ways, like the Muck Bowl
: all over again.
Or, as former Glades Central
offensive lineman Xaviei McK-
enzie put it:
"It was like Ali and Frazier
out there," he said, watching
the Feb. 1 Super Bowl from his
dorm room at Stillman Univer-
sity.
'TWo of the Muck's finest
Cardinals wideout Anquan
Boldin (Pahokee) and Steel-
ers wideout Santonio Holmes
(Glades Central) left lasting
impressions in the big game
that no one will soon forget.
In what some say was one
of the greatest Super Bowl ever
played, it was Holmes that
wound up with a champion-
ship ring, along with a Super
Bowl MVP award.
His breathtaking perfor-
mance, capped by a game-win-
ning 6-yard touchdown catch
with just 35 seconds left in the
game, sealed the Pittsburgh
Steelers a 27-23 victory over the
Arizona Cardinals.
It was deemed one of the
greatest catches made in Su-
per Bowl history, with Holmes
grabbing the ball on the right
corner of the end zone.
In an ESPN Sportsnation poll
taken on Monday, only David
Tyree's helmet-assisted catch


in last year's Super I

Man shot



dead at home


No suspects ID'ed
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE A man's life
was cut short on Jan. 31.
According to the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO), shots were fired at 624
S. E. 6th St.
When deputies report-
edly arrived on the scene, they
found Anthony S. Kearse dead
at his residence.
It was revealed that the vic-
tim was fatally struck from mul-
tiple gunshot wounds.
What's alarming, however,
is that no suspects have been
identified at this time.
In addition, the sheriff's of-
fice currently does not have any


leads in regards to how the inci-
dent took place.
It's not known whether or
not the shooting is gang-relat-
ed and/or a domestic violence
matter.
The Palm Beach County
Violent Crimes Task Force is
conducting an investigation on
the incident at this time.
If anyone was in the vicinity
of the shooting or has informa-
tion leading up to an arrest, the
Task Force is encouraging you
to call 688-4000.
You could also contact
Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-
TIPS or send a lead in an e-mail
to tips@cspbc.com.
This incident reportedly oc-
curred at 10:52 p.m.


Championing


the area's Super


Bowl heroes


Cities to honor
Super Bowl MVP
Holmes, Boldin and
Green
By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION It's
a great time to be in the area
right now.
With three towns repreesent-
ed in Super Bowl XLIII Belle
Glade, Clewiston and Pahokee
- it's safe to say that history has
been made once again.
For the Pittsburgh Steelers,
the six-time Super Bowl cham-
pion, it was Glades Central
alum Santonio Holmes who
snagged the MVP award.
The South Bay-bred wideout
was not alone in representing
the area in the Super Bowl.
Pahokee native Anquan Bol-
din, who will be headed to his
third Pro Bowl this weekend
in Honolulu, Hawaii, starred
in the big game as an Arizona
Cardinals wideout.
Clewiston native Eric Green,
in his fourth NFL season as an
Arizona Cardinals cornerback,
was inactive for the game.
Though Green was hobbled
by a nagging knee injury for


much of the 2008 season, he
still made a'valuable contribu-
tion to the Cardinals as he as-
sisted in the development of
emerging defensive back Do-
minique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Rodgers-Cromartie replaced
Green in the starting lineup late
in the season, relegating him to
backup status.
Nevertheless, Green, along
with Boldin and Holmes, will
be honored by the cities of Belle
Glade, Clewiston, Pahokee and
South Bay.
History in the making
In 2006, Pahokee, Glades
Central and Glades Day won
high school football state titles
simultaneously.
Clewiston lost their state title
game in a triple-overtime heart-
breaker that same year.
It was widely believed that
the four teams, residing within
a 25-mile radius, set a Guiness
Book world record with that
amazing feat.
The accomplishment was
highlighted in a 2007 issue of
ESPN The Magazine, along with
a special later airing on ESPN's
Sportscenter.
Combined with what just
happened this past Sunday,

PBSO names new jail captain


Sheriff's office to
expand facility from
256 to 977 bed units
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES Transitions can
bring out the best in a person.
For Mark Chamberlain, the
-new captain of the area's Palm
Beach County jail facility, the
above application applies.
With 24 years notched un-
der his belt at the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
Chamberlain will be oversee-
ing significant changes to be
made at the jail within the next


two years.
Effective Jan. 12, he re-
placed fellow PBSO Captain
Alan Fuhrman, who previously
served in that post for approxi-
mately two years.
Sheriff Ric Bradshaw seems
to have made the right choice
in the selection, given Cham-
berlain's track record.
The new captain's previous
position, a 14-month long stint,
was that of the PBSO Stockade
commander.
The stockade, which is lo-
cated near the South Florida
Fairgrounds in West Palm
Beach, features a minimum-to-
medium security jail facility.
According to Chamberlain,


there are about 750 inmates
housed at the stockade, along
with 189 staff members.
Those figures are notewor-
thy, considering the county's
plans to expand the Belle Glade
jail facility.
That being said, officials
would like for the current 256-
bed unit to grow up to 977,
preferably by summer 2010.
It may not be enough, as
the inmate count could possi-
bly hover around 1,000 or even
more.
In essence, the stockade
unit, erected in 1952, will be
shut down as part of the coun-

gling families. The department's

gram provides full tuition and fees

Letters to the Editor


Re-Lifeing Pahokee
Granted I haven't been to any
commission meetings in several
years, but I must say that I don't get
the feeling that the townspeople
have lost faith in our mayor and
commissioners. It takes time for
change to happen and we must
be patient. We can't just jump in
and host a big festival, because
this economy isn't exactly at its
healthiest. I'm sure the county is
as strapped as the state and the
country. Funds, which used to be
available to us for events, may not
be, at this time. My suggestion is
to wait until our country is back
on it's feet, and we are all in a bet-


ter place, financially, before we
start talking about hosting festi-
vals. When the economy is hurt-
ing, so are the citizens. Now is
not the time to ask people to give
what they do not have. That is just
my opinion.
But if the city or one of our
organizations would like to be-
gin planning an I love Pahokee
Day, then I would most certainly
would volunteer to serve on a
committee. I just believe that
it would be difficult to garner
support at this time. I feel our
primary focus should be con-
centrated on helping our citizens
open/start small business, or re-

least one player

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION The

that fans across the area won't
soon forget.
Many of the area's high school
athletes accomplished spectacu-
lar individual statistics, some for
the record books.
Clewiston's Darris Hughes,
who committed to Georgia State
University yesterday, set a sin-
gle-season rushing record with
2,043 yards, along with 21 touch-
downs.


Glades Day eighth-grade sen-
sation Kelvin Taylor, who's the
son of NFL running .back Fred
Taylor, finished the year with an
astounding 27 touchdowns and
1,692 yards on the ground.

'L.J.' Thomas led all area quarter:
backs with 26 touchdown passes
and just four interceptions.

Underclassmen look to shine on national stage


Scout.com 7-on-7
tournament set for
March 14-15 at USF

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PALM BEACH COUNTY Meet
the Palm Beach County All-Stars.
That consists of some of the
area's best high school football
players in the Class of 2010.
With the Class of 2009 taking
part in National Signing Day yes-
terday, the focus is now on the
juniors.
There's no better way for Class
of 2010 college prospects to in-
crease their stock than partici-
pating in camps, as analysts and
recruiter like to point out.
Maryshal Rothman (Jupiter
Christian) and De'Joshua John-
son (Pahokee) understand that
reality, as, they created a seven-
on-seven team last week.
The two highly regarded ju-
niors, who have become good
friends, met each other at the
2007 Class 1A state champion-
ship game.
"At this point, De'Joshua


wasn't even, a star yet," Rothman
remembers.
"But he told me he was gonna
be and I believed him," he .con-
tinued.
"Guess he was right, I could
trust him."
Currently on the Class of 2010
ESPN150 Watch List, Johnson is
considered the top overall pros-
pect in the Muck.
He's also regarded as one of
the top 250 players in the country,
according to Rivals.com.
That's reason enough for the
Jupiter Christian quarterback to
tap Johnson as a co-captain for
the Palm Beach County All-Stars.
The all-star team, which will
also feature Royal Palm Beach
wideout Chris Dunkley, is slated
to compete in a national seven-
on-seven tournament, sponsored
by Badger Sports.
It's worth noting that Dunkley
and Johnson were recently re-
garded as the two top performers
in the Jan. 4 Under Armour (UA)
All-American Underclassmen
Camp, held in Orlando.
The competition, to be hosted
by Fox Sports and Scout.com, will
be taking place from March 14-15
at the University of South Florida


(USF) in Tampa.
"I had a few guys in mind, like
De'Joshua and Chris," Rothman
said.
"I absolutely wanted them to
play with me," Rothman said'.
Assigning Johnson to the
Muck area, Rothman picked up
some of the best talent the coast
has to offer.
Considering the fact that a
maximum of 16 players could
be on the team, Rothman picked
players like Florida commit Matt
Elam (Dwyer) and Jupiter Chris-
tian teammates Will Powers, Dan-
ny Meyer and Weston Pedersen.
Johnson tapped teammates
Fred Pickett and Merill Noel to
play.
Noel, a defensive back for the
Pahokee Blue Devils last season,
posted a 4.38 40-yard dash time
at the UA Underclassmen Camp
last month.
Pickett has picked up offers
from several colleges, including
Florida State and LSU, among
others.
"The Pahokee boys give so
much respect to those who per-
form on the field and play well,"
Rothman said.
"They've been real welcoming


to us, like we're buddies to them,"
Rothman continued, on behalf of
his all-star teammates.
"After that, the rest of the piec-
es fell into place."
The Palm Beach County All-
Star team consists of these under-
classmen:
Pahokee: De'Joshua Johnson
(Palm Beach County All-Stars co-
captain), Merill Noel, Fred Pickett
(transferred from Glades Central
last month)
Glades Central: QB Leron
'L.J.' Thomas, DB Travis Bell, RB
Antwon Chisolm
Jupiter Christian: QB Mary-
shal Rothman (Palm Beach Coun-
ty All-Stars co-captain), RB Will
Powers, TE Danny Meyer, WR/DB
Weston Pedersen
Dwyer: RB Matt Elam (2008
Lou Groza Athlete of the Year),
TE Gerald Christian, WR/DB Rob-
ert Clarke
Royal Palm Beach: WR Chris
Dunkley (Class of 2010 ESPN150
Watch List player; potential rivals.
com five-star recruit)
American Heritage-Delray
Beach: RB Darius Milines /
A first team Class IB All-State
selection, Rothman looks to im-
prove on last season's standing,


when the 'Purple Team' (consist-
ing of Jupiter Christian and Au-
bumdale) reached the national
semifinals.
The Purple Team lost to the
South Florida Express, which
featured the Class of 2009's best
athletes from Broward and Dade
County, including Mirimar's Eu-
gene Smith.
The team of Pahokee/Tampa-
Plant took home the Badger
Sports 7-on-7 national champion-
ship last year, defeating the South
Florida Express in the finals.
The championship-winning
team featured the likes of Aaron
Murray (Plant), Orson Charles
(Plant), Nu'Keese Richardson
(Pahokee), Brandin Hawthorne
(Pahokee), Vincent Smith (Paho-
kee) and Jarvis Byrd (Pahokee).
Now, -for this year's competi-
tion, Rothman believes he could
lead the Palm Beach County All-
Stars to a national title.
Of course, Pahokee will have
a chance to repeat as national
champions, albeit with a different
team this time.
"This team we have here is
clearly the best in the state for the
tournament," Rothman said.
There will be three other


Florida teams in the tournament,
which consist of the South Florida
Express, Big Bend (Tallahassee
area) and Tampa (mostly Plant
players).
Teams from Alabama, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Geor-
gia, Tennessee and Mississippi are
also likely to compete.
Rothman on why no one from
Glades Day's 2010 class was
picked:
"I don't really know anyone
from there," Rothman said.
"We just tried to do the best we
could with the space we had."
Practice dates and locations
are forthcoming, according to
Rothman.
If the state clears the Palm
Beach County All-Stars to com-
pete, which shouldn't be an issue,
then they'll be ready to go.
"It's gonna be tough for every-
.one to get on the field, but we'll
make it happen," Rothman said.

Spanish Forts



and Missions in



South Florida


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Long oars rose and fell like
cutlasses, each oar blade flash-
ing in the sunlight before slicing
through the aqua green waters
with master strokes that launched
the boat forward. Spanish sailors,
burnt brown by a thousand suns,
pulled the oars in unison, propel-
ling the long boat across the bays
short, choppy seas. Plumes of
frothy, white spray flew across the
rising and falling bow, as the boat
ploughed through the waves,
leaving long, creamy furrows in
its wake.
The steady, creaking rhythm
of rowing oars skirted the boat
across the bay into a small inland
river that twisted its way through
a maze of intertwining, mangrove
islands. A small bay opened in
the green void revealing a crudely
fashioned Spanish fort at the wa-
ters edge. Oars were lifted and
the helmsman steered the boat
silently to the empty shore.
A slight shudder ran through
the boat as its shallow keel
grounded in the soft muddy, bay
bottom. Soldiers, poised like rap-
tors in the boat's bow, leaped
into the shallow bay and stood
prepared at the water's edge with
cocked crossbows, waiting for
signs of life, hostile or friendly.
This fictitious yarn reveals a
small, remote Spanish fort held
captive in a wild and hostile land
called "La Florida." It is time to
take "A Walk in The Past" and
read more tall tales about the
Spanish settlements and missions
in Florida.
In 1566, the Spanish built a
fort at Tampa Bay, where the To-
cobaga Indians lived. Father Ro-
gel, a Spanish Jesuit priest, was
with the Spanish and started a
mission at the fort. The Spaniards
constructed a second fort called
Fort Antonio in 1567, at the prov-
ince of Calus, which is located on
present day Charlotte Harbor.
Father Rogel left the Tampa
Bay mission to help start a new
mission at Ft. Antonio. He was at
Fort Antonio when news reached
him that the rainy season had de-
stroyed the supplies at the Tampa
Bay fort. He was told that the set-
tlement was suffering badly and
needed help, or it would perish.
Father Rogel had lived at Fort
Antony one month when news of


the beleaguered fort reached him.
During this time he had made no
converts and was forever under
the scrutinizing eyes of the Calusa
Casique Carlos, who hated him
and waited for the opportune
time to sacrifice him. These fac-
tors helped Father Rogel feel a
stronger loyalty to the Tampa Bay
mission.
In 1567, he sailed to Havana,
Cuba and notified the suppliers
of Pedro Menendez de Avilis that
the Spanish soldiers stationed at
the beleaguered fort on Tampa
Bay were in dire need of supplies.
An expedition was immediately
formed in Havana and command-
ed by Pero Menendez Marques,
who was Pedro Menendez de
Avilis's nephew. Father Rogel ac-
companied the Spanish expedi-
tion to Tampa Bay. They arrived
at the fort, which consisted of
small shelters and a barricade of
logs, but no one was home.
The Spanish party found two
murdered soldiers, who had been
captured and kept as slaves, until
the Indians saw the Spanish ships
enter Tampa Bay. Indians told
the Spanish that the garrison was
overrun when the soldier's sup-
plies had become exhausted. No
doubt the Tocobaga Indians took
advantage of the soldiers' ill for-
tune at the fort and saw this as an
opportune time to rid themselves
of uninvited guest.
Some of the Indians told Father
Rogel that the Spanish soldiers
were killed because they were
mean spirited. Spanish conquis-
tadors and soldiers were arrogant
and cruel to the Indians in living
in Spain's "New World Empire,"
so they probably were mean spir-
ited to the Tocobaga Indians.
Father Rogel interpreted the.
Spanish fort massacre differently.
He wondered if the Spanish had
become a burden to the Indians
or if the Tocobaga Casique feared
he was going be murdered and
replaced like the Calusa casique
Carlos. The Spanish expedition
commander, Pero Menendez
Marques, brought closure to the
Spanish fort and massacre, when
he ordered the Indian villages and
Spanish fort burned at Tampa
Bay.

Pertussis, you may remember


it as Whooping Cough


Don't underestimate
the severity of the
disease

By Brenda Barnes
Continuing with the topic
of bacteria, how many folks re-
member hearing their parents or
grandparents talk about whoop-
ing cough?
The clinical name for whoop-
ing cough is Pertussis.
It is a very contagious bacterial
respiratory illness caused by bac-
teria known as Bordetella pertus-
sis.
Anyone can get whooping
cough and it can be a very seri-
ous disease, especially for infants
because it can develop into pneu-
monia (lung infection).
It is usually spread when an in-
fected person coughs or sneezes
and those tiny droplets fly out of


their body and spread to those
around them.
Symptoms may start out simi-
lar to that of the common cold,
with runny nose, congestion,
sneezing, and mild cough or fe-
ver.
But after one to two weeks,
the severe coughing begins.
The coughing continues over
and over so rapidly and so vio-
lently that the air is forced out of
.the lungs and when the person
can finally inhale, they make a
loud "whooping" noise.
Many doctor visits may be
required before pertussis is con-
sidered as a reason for their long-
term cough.


The best way to help prevent
whooping cough is to make sure
that you and your children have
been vaccinated.
Vaccination for Pertussis be-
came available in the 1940's and
it should be part of your family's
vaccination schedule.
Parents, please take time to re-
view your family's immunization
records to make sure they are up
to date.
If you have questions, please
talk to your healthcare provider
about your family's vaccination
needs.
Remember to wash your
hands, be healthy and be happy!


Brittany Bacallao, Jr. Miss
Hendry, and Kylie Pencar-
inha, Miss Hendry County.

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.

This year, Kaleidoscope award-
ed nearly $3000 in prize money to

site at the event. There were sey-
eral categories in which schools
and cultural groups competed
for prize money: The City of West

I believe we all need some rescuing hugs


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Kyrie and Brielle Jackson were
born on 17 Oct. 1995 at the Mas-
sachusetts Memorial Hospital in
Worcester, MA., 12 weeks ahead
of their due date.
Each of the twins weighed all
of two pounds at birth. Though
Kyrie was putting on a bit of
weight in the days following her
arrival, Brielle was not doing as
well. The oxygen level in her
blood -was low, and her weight
gain was slow. She cried a great
deal, leaving her gasping and
blue-faced.
On November 12, Brielle went
into critical condition. She be-
gan gasping for breath, and her
face and stick-thin arms and legs
turned bluish-gray. Her heart rate
was way up, and she got hiccups,
a dangerous sign that her body


was under stress. Her parents
watched, terrified that she might
die.
Nurse Gayle Kasparian tried
everything she could think of to
stabilize Brielle. She suctioned her
breathing passages and turned up
the oxygen flow to the incubator.
Still Brielle squirmed and fussed
as her oxygen intake plummeted
and her heart rate soared.
Then Kasparian remembered
something she had heard from
a colleague. It was a procedure,
common in parts of Europe but
almost unheard of in this coun-
try, that called for double-bedding
multiple-birth babies, especially
preemies. Getting the parents'
permission, Kasparian slipped
the squirming baby into the incu-
bator holding the sister she hadn't
seen since birth.
When she put Brielle in the
incubator with her sister Kyrie,


almost immediately Brielle snug-
gled up to Kyrie. Her blood-oxy-
gen saturation levels, which had
been frighteningly low, soared.
She began to breathe more eas-
ily. The frantic crying stopped and
her normal pinkish color quickly
returned. As she dozed, Kyrie
wrapped her tiny arm around her
smaller sibling in a rescuing hug.
A picture was taken.
Over the next weeks, her
health improved steadily in her
new, less lonely quarters. When
last heard from, Brielle and Kyrie
were healthy preschoolers. The
media attention brought about by
their story and the now-famous
photo caused their parents, Heidi
and Paul Jackson of Westminster,
to change their telephone num-
ber..
Are you touched by this story?
If you say yes, it can mean that you
are emotionally affected. In an-


What would Jesus drive?



How would he pay for it?


other context, if you are touched
it could mean you are a little cra-
zy. Touched, it's a great word that
can mean many things!
When we touch up something
we remove blemishes. A touch
down means we score. Being
touched in the head can mean
something is not right mentally.
Being touched in the heart means
that you were affected deeply.
Saying, "He touched me!" can
mean excitement if it's someone
you like, but it can be an expres-
sion seeking punishment if it hap-
pens to be your brother after your
parents told you both to behave
and keep your hands to yourself.
Touching can mean a warm


embrace between friends or sig-
nificant others, a firm handshake
in greeting, or a pat on the back.
It can also mean inappropriate
groping, a shove away, or a slap
in the face (physically or emotion-
ally).
The truth is, all of us need to
be appropriately touched. Appro-
priate touches release something
in the brain called endorphins.
Endorphins generally give a gen-
eral boost in the mood and hap-
piness of an individual, and are
at the root of what athletes call
the "Runners High." People need
touch in order to survive, or they
become "touched," as in not right
mentally.


Consider the truth of how im-
portant touch can be in our lives.
The failing twin was healed by
the embrace of her sister. We,
too, can bring healing through
our embraces and touches. Think
how much brighter our day be-
comes when we are touched in
a special way by a special person
(or animal!).
One study I read said that we
need the equivalent of 12 good
hugs or positive affirmations a
day in order to survive, and 17 or
more in order to thrive.
In the name of God, for the
glory of God, let us go out and
help people thrive!

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We have a reference to Jesus
and "transportation" in the Palm
Sunday story; when He instructs
His disciples to borrow a colt.
(Matthew 21:3, e.g.) Otherwise
He seemed to walk every place or
take a boat. His reason was that
"The Lord needs them (the ani-
mals)" ,and that was a sufficient
reason. A while ago, a young per-
son was meeting a community
service obligation at a Church I
served and he told me about the
car deal that he was offered.
I asked him if his current
"wheels" would last him another
two years and he replied affir-
matively. We sat down and did
the math; so many payments for
so much time, the allowance for
the current car, the length of pay-
ments; the financed cost versus
the cost if paid for outright. We
were into four digits before long
and he looked surprised. We
agreed: it was his money and he
held off. There is a difference be-
tween need and want! I was look-
ing at houses one day and one


particular house interested me.
The realtor told me the price, the
current mortgage and the month-
ly payments, the length of the
mortgage and all else that was in-
volved in the sale. I told her "That
house is going to cost me about
three times the asking price when
I am done paying for it." She told
me "Most people don't think that
way." I am sure she was right. '
The Bible speaks of our finan-
cial relationships more in the Old
Testament than the New; It talks
about interest charges (cf Exodus
22:23) and the protection of the
poor from exploitation (cf Exo-,
dus 22:25) as well as loans to "the
family" of believers.
It gets back to "Am I my broth-
er's keeper?" The relationship
between borrower and lender is
more than a contractual one it is
a matter of faith on both parts.
The faith on the part of the lender
is that there will be a repayment
and the faith on the part of the
borrower is that the debt will be
repaid is at the root of the agree-
ment.
When a lender is more inter-
ested in making a loan or a bor-
rower is more interested in getting


a possession, their relationship is
a flawed one. "Am I my brother's
keeper?" Yes, and it applies to
any relationship when there is a
possibility,of exploitation. Don't
borrow if you're not sure about
paying back; don't lend if you
see some reason the borrower
will have problems. We're faced
with failing households, credit
problems, international market
problems and our personal and
interpersonal ethics (or lack of
them) affects us all.
Balancing between a fair re-
turn, a reasonable credit load,
living and doing business within
one's limits has implications for
the faithful. It also has implication
for our households, our society,
our future. A former theologian
once stated that "we're meant
to love people and use things,
and instead we love things and
use people." The Lord gave His
life for people and wasn't really
concerned about possessions or
how to acquire them, and gave
us a clue.
"The Lord needs..." and after
needing, to balance carefully with
our, obligations. Respecting our
limits and the limits of others.

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.

ledge said.
Boldin, who led all Cardinals
receivers with eight receptions, to
go with 84 yards, was instrumen-
tal in bringing Arizona back in the
fourth quarter.
Though Boldin didn't score a
touchdown, some of his catches
helped set up Arizona's come-
back from a 20-7 fourth quarter
deficit.
Late in the final frame, with less
than three minutes to go, Warner
completed a 64-yard touchdown
pass to Larry Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald, who had seven
catches for 127 yards and two
touchdowns, split a set of Pitts-
burgh defenders and raced to the
end zone, putting Arizona up 23-
20.
McKenzie, wired after that
play, made a bold statement to
his college friends who watched
the game with him.
"I told my boys, 'Santonio was
gonna win this," he said.
"I just had a feeling in me that
Santonio was gonna bring them
back.
"I saw Santonio put his helmet
on, he was like, 'Let's go, let's
go," McKenzie continued.
"Ever since you were little, you
wanted to bring a team back in
the fourth quarter."
Mckenzie proved to be right.
"You could see it in [Ben]
Roethlisberger's and Santonio's
eyes, they wanted to win this," he
said.
"It was like watching a heart of
a champion out there."
Though Warner finished with
31-for-43 passing, 377 yards, three
touchdowns and one intercep-

it's definitely one for the record
books.
In the words of Glades Cen-
tral Raiders head coach Jessie
Hester:
"This has never happened be-
fore," he said.
Belle Glade recreation director
J.D. Patrick chimed in on the ac-
complishment.

ty's jail renovation project.
It's unknown how much the
project will cost the county at this
time, but Chamberlain revealed
that the stockade is set for a major
refurbishment as a result.
"It's a lot cheaper to build a jail
now than in the future," Cham-
berlain claimed.
"Even if we have too many
beds in the long-term, it'll look
better economically the way were
doing."
Hoping to finish his career at
the Belle Glade jail facility, Cham-
berlain pointed to a projected
population increase in the county
as the primary reason for the ex-
pansion.
According to Chamberlain,
the county hired a consultant not
long ago, with studies backing up
his claim, though they weren't
disclosed.
"Along with that, we should
expect an increase in criminal ac-
tivity," he said.
Erected in 1983, the Belle
Glade jail was built as a 103-bed
unit, with an expansion added in
1997,
There are currently about 140
inmates housed in the jail com-
plex, according to Chamberlain.
That will change drastically,
as the stockade's staff members
and inmates will be transferred to
Belle Glade in the future.
Currently at 72 staffers in the
area's jail facility, it will grow to
261 employees.
The figure consists of deputies,

tion, it was Roethlisberger's first
and only touchdown pass that
mattered the most.
"Arizona came with a counter,
then Pittsburgh came with anoth-
er one and just finished them off,"
McKenzie said.
Thanks to a series of improvi-
sations on the final drive of the
game an eight-play, 78-yard one
at that Holmes was able to de-
liver in the clutch.
After hauling in a 40-yard re-
ception on that fateful drive, Pitts-
burgh simply went in for the kill.
With less than one minute to
go, from Arizona's 6-yard line,
Holmes missed an open pass on
first down.
Roethlisberger's pass attempt
went right through Holmes's fin-
gertips.
On the very next play, Holmes
redeemed himself with the game-
winning catch.
Ironically, it happened with
just 35 seconds left identical to
Plaxico Burress's game-winner
last year, in terms of time left on
the clock.
Roethlisberger finished 21-for-
30 passing with 256 yards, one
touchdown and one intercep-
tion.
"He has the potential to go
where no receiver's ever gone,"
Roethlisberger said of Holmes af-
ter the game.
Holmes, who had ESPN's top
postseason play going into the
Super Bowl, a 65-yard .touch-
down in the Steelers' 23-14 win
over the Baltimore Ravens in
the Jan. 18 AFC Championship
Game, finished with a game-high
nine catches for 131 yards and a
score.
Warren Sapp, an NFL Network
broadcaster and retired NFL star,
predicted that Holmes would be


proposed parade in their honor,
hopes the occasion could be tele-
vised.
"We want this thing to be re-
ally, really big," Wilson said.
"We definitely want the NFL to
be a part of this celebration."
It has been reported that War-
ren Sapp, a retired NFL player and
NFL Network broadcaster, plans
to come to Belle Glade.
That likely won't happen until
all plans are finalized.
Wilson would like for the pro-
posed parade to take place in the
near future, preferably within the
next month.
"Right now, all we have is an
idea," John Wilson.


secretaries and correctional sup-
port personnel.
It doesn't account for medical
and food services, whose staff op-
erate under a separate contract by
the sheriff's office.
A direct effect at the
jail
Improvements to be made at
the facility include the use of a
direct supervision housing opera-
tion.
The move, Chamberlain
claims, is more cost-effective in
that it eliminates the need for bars
built in the cell blocks.
Although the idea sounds dan-
gerous, given the penchant for
inmates to become violent at any
time, correctional experience and
studies show that less problems
will occur as a result.
Porcelain toilets will be placed
throughout the facility, costing
about $70 per unit.
That's a stark contrast to the
$1,500 spent on stainless steel
toilets, which are currently at the
Main Detention Center in West
Palm Beach.
"With a stainless steel toilet in
a traditional jail facility, if an in-
mate wants to destroy something,
he can," Chamberlain said.
"It's a weird comparison, but it
always stuck out in my mind."
The sheriff's office will save
on payroll expenses in that with
direct supervision, only one dep-
uty is needed to watch over 64
inmates.
It's different from the tradi-
tional setting, with two deputies
assigned to man 250 inmates.
"Instead of having bars, they'll

"Great players step up in big
times and make big plays," Hol-
mes said after the game.
Rutledge on Holmes's game-
winning grab, surrounded by
three Cardinals defenders:
"My Cardinals lost, but Santo-
nio made a hell of a catch," Rut-
ledge said.
"How do three defensive
backs let one receiver catch a ball
on them?" he wondered aloud.
"They could've done a better
job covering him.
"If I was one of those defend-
ers, I would've got into his face to

he'll surely catch it, he showed
that the whole game."
Holmes is the first football
player from the Muck to win the
Super Bowl MVP, a history-mak-
ing feat.
Not only is Holmes the first
Glades Central player to win a Su-
per Bowl, he can now lay claim to
being a champion on.all levels.
A two-time state champion
at Glades Central he helped the
Raiders accomplish a three-peat
from 19,98 to 2000 Holmes also
won a national championship at
Ohio State University in 2002.
It doesn't get any better than
that.
"I'm glad someone from the
Muck won MVP," Rutledge said.
"He played like an all-star."
Rutledge's summary
on overall experience
Looking back at the Super
Bowl, it seemed like Boldin and
the Cardinals were on their way
to capturing their first title.
But a rash of penalties, com-
bined with untimely mistakes,


Wilson, along with Pahokee
commissioner Diane Walker,
are set to spearhead a commit-
tee consisting of no less, than 10
people.
Preliminary details include
having at least three representa-
tives from Belle Glade, South Bay,
Pahokee and Clewiston sit in on
the plans.
Wilson is also hoping that the
Glades Central marching band,
along with Pahokee's OD Ex-
press, will be among those who
will star in the parade.
"We have something to be
proud of," Wilson said.
"It's easy to talk about it, but ac-
tions speak louder than words."


all be in together," Chamberlain
said. ]
Supervision would occur 24
hours a day and seven days per
week.
That's in contrast to the cur-
rent setting, where officers typi-
cally make rounds into the jail
cells once every two hours.
By law, officers must check
the area at least once per hour
between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.
It's not enforced any other
time, according to Chamberlain.
Visitation changes
The current visiting hours at
the area's jail facility is between 10
a.m. 5 8 p.m., Thursday through
Sunday.
Inmates, who get up to two
hours per week to see visitors,
now can talk to their loved ones
via a built-in glass wall.
That's all set to change, as
residents will be able to visit any
county jail and see inmates thor-
ough video-conferencing.
What it means is that staff
members currently working the
visitation facility will be elimi-
nated, saving the sheriff's office,
money in payroll expenses.
Those employees will be trans-
ferred to other parts of the facility,
Chamberlain said.
If you happen to be on the
coast and want to see your loved
one at the Belle Glade facility,
you'll likely be able to see him/her
at the Main Detention Center or
any location nearest you through
video.
The innovation will be avail-
able to the public 16 hours per
day and seven days a week.

proved costly.
Arizona finished with 11 pen-
alties for 106 yards, compared
to just seven flags for 56 yards in
favor of Pittsburgh, the six-time
Super Bowl champions (an NFL
record).
"The refs could've done a bet-
ter job with the game," Rutledge
said.
"I absolutely believe the refs
took the game from the Cardi-
nals.
"The Steelers didn't appear to
have the #1 team, they weren't
what I thought they would be,"
he continued.
"I don't see what Arizona did
wrong, they just didn't capitalize
on all their opportunities."
Rutledge on Boldin's perfor-
mance:
"He didn't have an Anquan
Boldin game, but he had a good
game," Rutledge said.
"I expected him to do a lot bet-
ter."
As Rutledge and his family left
Raymond James Stadium after the
game, they took a bite to eat be-
fore traveling back home on that
Boldin-sponsored charter bus.
Everyone on that bus, Rut-
ledge said, went home happy,
even though Boldin's team lost
the Super Bowl.
"It was absolutely the livest
game I've ever been to," Rutledge
said.
"The Super Bowl is unnatu-
ral; the crowd, the noise, every-
thing."
He even went out of his way to
rate the game.
"It was an A all the way," Rut-
ledge said.
"I never experienced some-
thing like that in my life."

According to published re-
ports, Glades Central High School
plans to retire Holmes's No. 2 jer-
sey he wore in high school.
Not only that, Holmes's alma
mater plans a rally in his honor.
The date and time for that is
not set yet, but nonetheless, Belle
Glade, in particular, could not be
at a better place in its illustrious
history.
"This is our time to shine in the
Glades," said J.D. Patrick, Belle
Glade's recreational director.
"You don't get but one time to
get this right," he continued.
"Let's not screw it up."

"Hopefully, in the end, the fa-
cility will be safer, more secured
and more humane for the inmates
than we have now," Chamberlain
said.
