Seats up for grabs in
Belle Glade, Pahokee
and South Bay

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES Elections are only a
short time away.
It promises to be an interest-
ing next few weeks, as a slew of
new candidates seem poised to
shape up the future of the Glades
area.


One could take the case of
South Bay, which has three of
its commissioners up for re-
election.
For those South Bay com-
missioners in question Esther
Berry, Shirley Walker-Turner and
John Wilson it is a collective bid
for re-election.
Earanza McKelvin, a South
Bay native, is deeply concerned
about the state of his city, citing
the lack of services available for
the youth and its senior citizens.
The 27-year-old is running


against Berry, a commissioner
who has served on the board
numerous terms.
"Ever since I've grown up,
nothing has changed in South
Bay," McKelvin said.
"You could look at every city
in the county and you'll see that
something's new there," he con-
tinued.
"There's nothing new in
South Bay and there's nothing
for the youth to do here."
A 2004 Florida A & M college
graduate, McKelvin said that

A resident braces herself for a blood test during the 2009 REACH Fair held at Belle
Glade Elementary on Saturday, Feb. 14.


it's the first time he's ever cam-
paigned for a government posi-
tion.
Nevertheless, as McKelvin
points to what he feels is a lack
of guidance and role models in
his city, he feels that it's time for
a change to occur.
"This is a learning experience
for me," McKelvin said, realizing
there's no guarantee the city's
citizens would elect him come
next month.
"If I don't win this time, hope-
fully I can the next time out."


Barbara King-Pittrell, 38, is yet
another candidate who is pos-
turing herself to infuse a youth
movement in South Bay.
Adding to McKelvin's primary
concerns, a long-standing issue
that has plagued the small city is
the condition of its roadways.
"The city has moved down-
ward in the last 10-15 years," the
South Bay resident said.
"It's not getting better, it's get-
ting worse."

Man found



dead in canal


PBSO authorities:
No foul play
involved

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE A 59-year-old
man plunged to his death in the
morning hours of Feb. 15.
Authorities from the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO) revealed that Charles
James Barber, of 750 Wadell
Way, fell into a canal located in
. the back of 'The Track Store'.
The Track Store, located on
730 Old Belle Glade Rd., is on
the corner of U.S. 98/U.S. 441/
State Road 15 and State Market
Road.
At approximately 9:48 a.m.,
it was revealed that an individ-


ual called the PBSO, advising
officials of a dead body floating
into the canal.
The canal in question report-
edly has a steep embankment
and is covered with weeds and
heavy foliage.
Deputies later responded
to the scene, confirming what
the unidentified caller advised
about.
The body was located in the
middle of the 40-foot wide ca-
nal.
In a press release, detectives
say the man, who was report-
edly known to frequent the
area, may have consumed too
much alcohol at the time.
The finding, authorities be-
lieve, may have played a promi-
nent role in how the man lost

Suspect, who hasn't
been identified, is
still on the loose

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
, SOUTH BAY A 17-year-old
boy was shot after being ap-
proached by a suspect on Feb.
12.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
the victim was approached by
an unidentified male as he was
standifig in front of a store.
The store in question is lo-


cated on 105 N. W 10th Ave.
After facing the male, de-
scribed only as having. short
dreads, the victim was report-
edly shot in the upper torso
area.
It was revealed that the sus-
pect fled the scene almost im-
mediately after the shooting.
The victim was reportedly
transported to Glades General
Hospital after being struck.
From the area hospital, he
was later airlifted to Delray
Medical Center, where it was
discovered that his injuries

PBSO Deputy
makes heroic
rescue of a
disabled man
By Naji Tobias,
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Instincts
and quick reflexes.
Those are two traits a police
officer, many believe, must ex-
hibit to make sound decisions.
Fortunately for the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO), Deputy Algimiro Lo-
pez, 48, put that on display in
perhaps his signature moment
of his career thus far.
During the afternoon hours


of Jan. 29, Lopez rescued a
disabled man after he tried to
cross a bridge on a railroad
track with his wheelchair.
At about 3 p.m. on that
Thursday, the Bronx, New York
native received a call from the
PBSO's dispatch office about
Robbie Bonnel, who was stuck
on the railroad track with his
motorized wheelchair.
The scene location was at
1108 W Canal St. South.
Bonnel was trying to cross
the Hillsborough Canal going
northbound.
At the time, Lopez was re-
sponding from Northwest Av-
enue F and State Road 715 in
Belle Glade.
Prior to the rescue, Lopez
was reportedly patrolling the


area.
It took less than two min-
utes for Lopez to arrive on the
scene.
Lopez on that ride to the res-
cue site:
"After being notified by dis-
patch of the man being on the
railroad tracks, I was thinking
in my head, 'What's he doing
on the railroad tracks?,'" Lopez
said.
"But before you know it, I
was already on the scene."
Lopez placed his patrol car
on the tracks with the siren
lights on.
The patrol car was report-
edly slotted in between the two
railroad arms, which are used

Teams win basketball titles


Glades Day is district
runner-up; season
ends for both Moore
Haven and Pahokee

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION How
does,a Class 4A Final Four match-
up between Clewiston and Glades
Central sound?
The probability of that dream
matchup increases, especially af-
ter both teams have reached the
Class 4A Regional Boys Basket-
ball Tournament.
Glades Day, the No. 9 ranked
team in Class 2A, advanced to
the 2A Regionals after reaching
the District 2A-13 championship
game against Summit Christian.
Pahokee and Moore Haven,
however, failed to reach the finals
of their respective district tourna-
ments.
Pahokee lost to Inlet Grove,
70-60, in the District 3A-13 semifi-
nals, while Moore Haven's season
ended in the opening round of the
District 2A-12 tournament.
The FHSAA regional quarter-
final games for Clewiston (20-4),
Glades Day (19-6) and Glades
Central (20-6) will be played to-
night at 7 p.m.
Glades Central, who won their
second consecutive District 4A-
14 title on Feb. 14, will have the
luxury of hosting their first two
regional tournament games.
That will happen only if they
win tonight's matchup against
District 4A-13 runner-up Rock-
ledge (20-6).
The two home games were
earned by the Raiders' 46-44
triple-overtime win over Jensen
Beach (13-4) in the District 4A-14
championship game, which was
played at Glades Central.
Jensen Beach travels north to
District 4A-13 champion Cocoa
(25-3) in their Class. 4A regional
quarterfinal game.
Glades Central, should they
win, will face the winner of Co-
coa and Jensen Beach in the re-
gional semifinals next Tuesday
night (Feb. 24).
If the Raiders move on to the
Class 4A regional championship
game, they'll likely have to get
past two-time defending Class 4A
chAnmpion M'l-lpisignor Pace
GlMat'dritiAT ,db hrot ?anl
their season to end again at the
hands of Monsignor Pace, who
defeated them 79-55 in Opa
Locka last year.


Interestingly, the way the FH-
SAA brackets are set up, should
these two teams meet again,
they'll be in Opa Locka once
again.
"I wouldn't be surprised if
Glades Central reached the Final
Four," said Glades Day head coach
Jeff Browning, who acknowl-
edged Glades Central's amazing
late-season run, including a win
over Class 6A power Santaluces.
"They're playing very well
right now."
Browning's team was just one
point shy of claiming the District
2A-13 championship, losing 45-44
to Summit Christian on Feb. 14.
After Summit Christian con-
nected on a free throw to take the
one-point lead with just five sec-
onds left in the game, Glades Day
had a chance to win.
With a Gators timeout used,
the team ran a play out of half-
court, setting the score up for
Alan Denise.
Unfortunately, his wide open
three-point shot missed the buck-
et and Summit Christian celebrat-
ed the win on their home floor.
"We were pretty closely
matched with Summit Christian,"
Browning said of his team.
"It could have gone either
way," he continued.
"We had a shot at the end, but
we just didn't knock it down."
Nevertheless, Browning cred-
its the season's schedule and the
veteran play of his seniors as key
components in reaching the Class
2A Regional Boys Basketball Tour-
nament.
Now, Glades Day will be trav-
eling south to Weston tonight as
they'll face last year's state run-
ner-up, Sagemont (18-10).
"The experience we have here
has helped us out a lot," Brown-
ing said.
"With the toughest schedule
in our school's history, I just feel
we're ready to go," he continued.
"We're definitely looking for-
ward to our matchup with Sage-
mont, no question about it."
Browning on Glades Day's
chances to reach the Class 2A Fi-
nal Four:
"I think we have an excellent
shot," he said.
"I'm figuring we'll have to get
past Summit Christian again if we
make it that far."
If both Glades Day and Sum-
, mit Christian \\in tonight Sumr
mi 1ihristisan will be hosung Corcal:
Springs Christian thf'ltl Iref '
again next Tuesday night in the
regional semifinals.
The Feb. 24 game would be
played at you guessed it Sum-


mit Christian again.
Browning is also excited about
what Clewiston has accom-
plished, as his team split a home-
and-home series with the Tigers
this season.
After a 56-53 home loss to
Clewiston on Dec. 9, Glades Day
returned the favor with an 85-73
road win on Feb. 3.
"Clewiston's a very good
team," Browning said.
"It wouldn't shock me if they
advance to the Final Four, I'll tell
you that."
Clewiston defeated Riverdale,
45-37, in the District 4A-11 cham-
pionship game, which was played
in LaBelle.
Down 26-25 going into the
fourth quarter, the Tigers mauled
their way to a 10-2 run and never
looked back.
Senior guard Jonathon Wil-
liams led the way, as he hit two
crucial three-pointers in the final
frame, along with two late free
throws to ice the championship
win for Clewiston.
Williams, who's the Tigers'
sixth man this season, led all scor-
ers with 15 points.
Hurley Johnson, who came
into the contest as the team's
leading scorer at 17.3 points per
game, added 10 points.
Johnson saw limited action
in the title game as he drew his
fourth foul going into the fourth
quarter.
"With our best player in foul
trouble, we just had different play-
ers step in and make big plays for
us," said Willie Lee, Clewiston's
head coach.
"Jonathan had a tremendous
game for us and he's shown his
playing ability well throughout
the second half of the season."
In fact, Williams has aver-
aged approximately 14 points per
game after having a slow start to
his senior season.
That bodes very well for
Clewiston, who has lost just once
since their Holiday Classic loss to
Mariner back in December.
The Tigers have gone on the
road to defeat the likes of Pa-
hokee and Immokalee, both of
which are considered to be good
teams.
Clewiston has gone undefeat-
ed on the road since the Holiday
Classic.
Lee has attributed his team's
success Lo three things: defense,
rebounding and shot selection.
""'"We'had a very 'poor shoot-
ing game against Riverdale," Lee
said.
"It was an offensive struggle,
but the defense won it for us."


Clewiston's 10-2 run in the
fourth quarter of the district title
game was made possible by the
defense forcing six turnovers,
converting them into points.
"The kids have been prepared
on the fundamentals," Lee said.
"What got them into the tour-
nament, they just have to find a
way and continue to execute."
With no significant injuries or
school-related issues facing the
team, Lee said the team's just
'blessed to have the season we've
had.'
"I appreciate what the Lord
has done for us," Lee said.
Lee on the possibility of fac-
ing Glades Central in the Class 4A
state semifinals:
"I don't make predictions, but
all I know is that I'm gonna put
the team in position to win," he
said.
"It's in God's hands on what
the outcome will be."
Notes: If both Clewiston and
Glades Central reach the Class 4A
Final Four in Lakeland, they'll be
facing each other on Thursday,
Mar. 5.
Should Glades Day reach the
Class 2A Final Four, they'll be
playing in the state semifinals on
Mar. 5 as well.
The Class 2A and 4A state
championship games will be
played on Saturday, Mar. 7 in
Lakeland.

PBSO is seeking Volunteer



Domestic Violence Victim Advisors


Our law enforcement officers
have helped to keep many bat-
tered women and men safe by
fast response times to answer do-
mestic call outs and by arresting
the primary aggressor when-a do-
mestic violence crime has been
committed.
It has also been found that vic-
tims of domestic violence benefit
even more if immediate interven-
tion is provided after the crime
has been committed, by the Dep-
uties linking these victims with a
Volunteer Victim Advisor from the
scene.
As when immediate interven-
tion is provided, victims are more
likely to follow through with the
community referrals and safety
plans that are recommended.
This helps victims get the help
they need to end the cycle of vio-
lence and keep them and their
families safe.
Statistics reveal that an esti-
mated 4 to 6 million women are
battered by a spouse or intimate
partner in the U.S. each year, and
an incident of domestic violence
occurs every 12 to 15 seconds.
.Children are the silent vic-
tims whenever there is domestic
violence, as all children who wit-
ness it can experience emotional


trauma.
Also, nearly 70% of the men
who abuse their partners also
physically neglect or abuse the
victim's children.
Thus, these statistics clearly
illustrate why this problem con-
tinues to be a major concern for
law enforcement agencies and
the reason the Sheriff's Office has
taken a proactive stance in com-
bating domestic violence within
our community.
After all, a child's main con-
cern of the day should never have
to be the thought that someone in
their family could be killed.
To date, there are 18 "on-call"
Volunteer Victim Advisors and
since the program's inception in
December of 2000, 8,362 victims
have been provided with servic-
es.
These Volunteers are making
a difference and helping to save
lives. Therefore they should be
commended for the work that
they do.
However, the Sheriff's Office
is in need of more volunteers to
handle the high volume of cases.
That is why I am asking quali-
fied professionals from the com-
munity to take a proactive po-
sition by joining with our law


enforcement team to becorhe
Volunteer Domestic Violence Vic-
tim Advisors for the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office.
The Volunteer Advisors will
be essential in linking domestic
violence victims with community
resources and conducting follow-
up contacts with them.
All victim contacts provided
by the volunteers will be made
over the telephone and can be
performed from the volunteer's
home.
In conclusion, community
involvement in this innovative
program will have a great impact
on combating domestic violence
within Palm Beach County.
It is preferred that those who
inquire about the volunteer posi-
tion have at least an Associate's
Degree in Social.Work, Criminal
Justice, Psychology or a degree in
a closely related field.
, For more information call 561-
688-4195 for Marla Galindez, Do-
mestic Violence Victim Advocate.
Join our team and become a
Volunteer Victim Advisor today.

West Palm Beach, Fla. Flor-
ida Governor Charlie Crist on
February 3, 2009 appointed Ben-
jamin Frank, a former executive
and attorney with more than for-
ty years experience in business,

the Health Care District of Palm
Beach County, a volunteer posi-
tion. Mr. Frank replaces C. David
Goodlett, who served on the
Board for eight years before be-
ing term limited.
"I welcome this opportunity
to apply my experience in gov-
ernment and healthcare to serve
the residents of Palm Beach
County," said Mr. Frank.

business professional. After
earning his law degree from
New York University's School

also served as a member of the
Executive Committee, Joint Con-
:ference Committee, Chairman
of the Legal and Government
Affairs Committee, and Chair-
man of the Appeals and Review
Committee. Mr. Frank also has
served on the Board of the Life-
line Center, a non-profit special
education school for children.
"Mr. Frank's professional back-


ground, legal acumen and expe-
rience on the North Shore Uni-
versity Health System Board will
serve him well in his new role,"
said Dwight D. Chenette, Chief
Executive Officer of the Health
Care District of Palm Beach
County.
The Health Care District
Board comprises seven Com-
missioners. Three Commission-
ers are appointed by the Gover-
nor of the State of Florida, three

Chair Jonathan Satter wel-
comed the appointment: "We
are facing challenging times.
As unemployment grows, more
and more residents of Palm
Beach County are turning to the
Health Care District for safety
net services and health cover-
age. With his several decades of
experience, including high-level
government experience in peri-
ods of sharp recession, Benja-
min Frank brings to the Board a
valuable background in finance,
management and strategic plan-
ning."

munities along the southeastern
shore of Lake Okeechobee. The
community is invited to enjoy a
walk/run and barbeque at the
Belle Glade Marina on Feb. 28.
The event starts at 9:30 a.m. with
a walk/run from the Marina. The
first fifty participants will receive
a wellness prize. In addition, lo-
cal schools and businesses which
send teams to the event or raise
funds can compete for prizes. The

reational activities for children, in-
cluding a bounce house, bubbles,

to provide free blood pressure
check-ups. Gove Elementary

cil is sponsoring a circuit of seven
"Kids Around the Word" wellness
stations. Volunteers from Glades

Boat traffic will
not be allowed due
to lowering Lake
Okeechobee levels

Okeechobee, Fl The naviga-
tion locks, S-193 at Taylor Creek,
G-36 at Henry Creek and S-135
at J&S Fish Camp will be closed
to all boat traffic when Lake
Okeechobee's water level falls to
13.00 ft. NVGD.
Currently, the forecast calls for
a continuing dry weather, with
little to no significant rainfall pre-
dicted to recharge local drainage
basins along the rim canals that
flow into Lake Okeechobee.
The weather pattern has trig-
gered the decision to close the
aforementioned navigation locks.
This is being done in order to
maintain current canal water lev-
els in the areas serviced by these
locks.
Once these navigation locks
are secured in the closed and
unmanned position, they will re-
main closed until water in Lake
Okeechobee is recharged through
rainfall to a level that water man-
agers feel will enable them to
resume normal lock operations
while maintaining canal levels
north of the lake.
These closures will slow the
loss of water from boat lockage in
the local drainage basins includ-
ing Taylor Creek and Treasure Is-


land canal systems and maintain
navigable levels in these systems
as these dry conditions persist.
During the recent drought,
low water levels in these canals
caused them to become impass-
able and overgrown with vegeta-
tion.
Following requests from the
surrounding community, the Dis-
trict closed the navigation locks
to preserve the remaining water
for both navigation and for water
supply.
This action will provide similar
protections.
For additional information
about the navigation locks, wa-
ter levels or other District proj-
ects, please phone the SFWMD
Okeechobee Service Center at
863-462-5260 or 800-250-4200.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is a regional, gov-
ernmental agency that oversees
the water resources in the south-
ern half of the state 16 counties
from Orlando to the Keys.
It is the oldest and largest of
the state's five water manage-
ment districts.
The agency mission is to man-
age and protect water resources
of the region by balancing and
improving water quality, flood
control, natural systems and wa-
ter supply.
A key initiative is cleanup and
restoration of the Everglades.


U.S. Army applauds district


project for disabled vets


District Everglades
platform increases
public conservation
land access
West Palm Beach, FL -The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) and its partner,
United Waterfowlers Florida,
Inc., received a Freedom Team
Award from the U.S. Army for the
speedy effort to build a special-
ized platform in the remnant Ev-
erglades for disabled soldiers and
residents alike.
The waterfowl hunting/bird
watching platform was construct-
ed in less than 90 days at the Dis-
trict's Stormwater Treatment Area
5 (STA-5) in Hendry County.
The successful project was
the latest SFWMD effort to meld
restoration with recreation by in-
creasing outdoor opportunities-
and access to them-on public
lands.
The District has long sponsored
a hunting recreation program, yet
an e-mail from a wounded vet-
eran made SFWMD Governing
Board member Michael Collins
and members of the Water Re-
sources Advisory Commission
(WRAC), which he chairs, com-
mitted to doing more.
"The veteran said, 'I'm tired of
volunteering my time-to go down
to the hospital and play bingo and
watch those guys sitting in chairs
inside of the hospital,'" Collins re-
called.
"It just struck me that for those
guys, getting out on one of the le-
vees would be a really good thing
to have happen. The great thing
about it is we build this duck plat-
form out into the swamp, and it's
actually something that makes
a great access point for every-
body."
Working with United Water-


fowlers Florida, Inc., the District
built a platform and large wood-
en boardwalk that can accommo-
date two wheelchairs.
For hunting, the structure can
be configured with camouflage
netting and other tools of the
sport.
"The STA waters have proven
to be a fantastic duck hunting op-
portunity in a world where there
are very few hunting opportuni-
ties left to the public any more,"
Collins added.
The SFWMD and Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission sponsored the first hunt
on Dec. 21, when several hunters
lent their permits to disabled vet-
erans so they could enjoy the new
platform.
Bird watchers are also benefit-
ing from the increased access at
the STA, renowned for its abun-
dant wildlife.
Notably, all of the District's
STAs are compliant with Ameri-
cans with Disabilities Act require-
ments.

Recreation
Opportunities
Continue to Expand
During the past year, the SF-
WMD took a number of steps to
improve recreational opportuni-
ties throughout South Florida:
In October 2008, outdoor en-
thusiasts gained another spot to
enjoy a host of recreational activi-
ties with the opening of the 3,700-
acre Chandler Slough in Okeecho-
bee, an addition to the Kissimmee
River Public Use Area.
In July 2008, the SFWMD out-
fitted Stormwater Treatment Area
(STA) 1 West, located in central
Palm Beach County, with a new
parking area leading to a 200-foot
viewing platform and gazebos
overlooking the watery expanse.

West Palm Beach, FL In
2009, the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
will mark 60 years of serving the
public by managing and protect-,
ing the water resources of South
Florida.
Created in 1949 as the Cen-
tral and Southern Florida Flood
Control District, the agency has
evolved at the direction of the
Florida Legislature into the multi-
faceted SFWMD, the largest and
oldest of the state's five water
management districts.
Today, the District continues
its original mission of providing
regional flood protection while
also managing water supplies for
a population of approximately 7.5
million, improving water qual-
ity and leading the restoration of
America's Everglades the larg-
est environmental project in the
nation's history.
"Over the last 60 years, the Dis-
trict has developed a reputation as
one of the leading water manage-
ment agencies in the world," said
SFWMD Governing Board Chair
Eric Buermann.
"Looking ahead to the next 60
years, we face many challenges,
from providing a growing popu-
lation with flood protection and a
quality water supply to restoring


our natural systems.
"With its long history and ex-
perience, this agency has' dem-
onstrated its ability to adapt and
evolve to best meet the needs of
South Florida's environment and
citizens."
To mark the District's 60th an-
niversary, informational panels
tracing the history of water man-
agement in South Florida have
been set up in the lobby of District
headquarters.
During today's Governing
Board meeting, Executive Direc-
tor Carol Ann Wehle also intro-
duced the first in a series of pre-
sentations that each month will
highlight aspects of the District's
past, present and future.
"The history of South Florida
cannot be written without dis-
cussing water," said Wehle, the
District's first female executive
director.
"Decisions made more than a
century ago continue to strongly
influence how we are able to ef-
fectively manage water and re-
lated resources for the benefit
of both people and the environ-
ment."
The first historical presentation
focused on early efforts to drain
the swamp lands of South Florida
. and temper the weather extremes
of the region.


Beginning with the Swamp
and Overflowed Land Act of
1850, the State of Florida and real
estate developers built canals to
drain wetlands and connect Lake
Okeechobee to both coasts.
Over the first half of the 20th
century, hardy residents dealt
with a cycle of heavy rains and
prolonged drought.
The Storm of 1,928 resulted in
thousands of deaths and was the
impetus for construction of a dike
around Lake Okeechobee, and
the Hurricanes of 1947 flooded
more than 90 percent of south-
eastern Florida.
Stunned by the damage and
duration of the 1947 flooding de-
spite earlier flood control actions,
Floridians demanded federal
help.
The U.S. Congress responded
in 1948 by adopting the Central
and Southern Florida Project, a
massive system of flood control
works designed to cover a 16,000-
square-mile area.
A year later, the Florida Leg-
islature created the Central and
Southern Florida Flood Control
District to serve as the local spon-
sor for the project.
For more information on the
history of the District, please visit
www.sfwmd.gov throughout the
year.


SSpanish Forts and



B Missions in South Fla.


.Cont. from Feb. 5,
hardships, murder
and more in the
New World
Father Rogel sailed back to
Cuba with the expedition.
He gathered supplies and re-
turned to Ft. Antonio in 1567, ar-
riving in far healthier spirits than
he had left in.
His bitter adversary; Casique
Carlos, was murdered by the
Spanish commander, Captain Re-
inoso, who placed a new Casique
called Felipe in his place.
The new Casique allied with
the Spanish, so Father Rogel was
now free to try and convert the
Calusa Indians, including Felipe.
Casique Felipe hated the Toco-
baga cacique and saw the Span-
ish massacre at Tampa Bay as a
blessing in disguise.
He instructed all the Calusa ca-
siques and captains to stockpile
weapons and asked that more
Spanish soldiers be stationed at
St. Antonio.
Pero Menendez Marques left
ten additional soldiers at Ft Anto-
nio to protect the fort, not know-
ing Casique Felipe's plans to use
them against the Tocobaga Indi-
ans.
The saying, you can't teach an
old dog new tricks certainly ap-
plied to Casique Felipe and the
Calusa people.
Father Rogul knew the Calusa
were a theological challenge,
based on his pervious visit, so on
his return trip from Havana, he
brought a large quanity of maize,
fishhooks, knives, hatchets, nails,
and adzes, which were used to
bait the Calusa to church.
Father Rogel said, "On account
of this, while the bounty last, there
is a very notable result in the way
of their coming willingly at the
smell of the lure that is given to
them to hear matters pertaining
to their salvation."
The Calusa were dedicated
church goers as long as the
"loaves and fish" lasted; they lost
interest when the gifts ran out.
Father Rogel was infuriated
when Casique Felipe committed
an incestuous act and married his
sister. Casique Felipe told Father
Rogel that it had always been the
Calusa way, and he wasn't going
to convert.
Change was ,an ugly, foreign
word to the Calusa people.
Father Rogel tried hard to con-
vert the Calusa, but they contin-
ued to worship their idols and the
men remained in polygamous
marriages.
There will be more "Tale Tales"
in next week's edition, "A Walk in
The Past" when Spanish missions
fail in south Florida.
I hope you have enjoyed this
story.

Kinsey




retires




from public




school




system

Effective Decem-
ber 19, 2008, Johnnie
Kinsey retired from
the public school
system after 40 years
of service.
Mr. Kinsey previ-
ously served as as-
sistant principal and
administrator of the
sixth grade center
at Clewiston MiddleJohnnieKinsey.
School. Johnnie Kinsey.
He counts being
voted the most valu-
able basketball player in the Indian River tour-
nament in high school and teacher of the year
in Atlantic public school system as his great-
est accomplishments. "In my guidance and
direction I wanted to instill in young people
that education is the key. You can be what you
want to be with effort and determination."




FWC





seeks good





homes for





unwanted





pets


If you have an exotic pet you can't care for
anymore, don't just open the front door and
set it free.
It's illegal to release a nonnative animal
into the wild in Florida, and it could be detri-
mental for the animal and the environment.
In an effort to keep unwanted exotic pets
out of Florida 's native habitats, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) and the Miami MetroZoo will host the
fifth Nonnative Pet Amnesty Day in March in
Miami.
"We are expecting to get quite a few non-
native animals that day, so we need to make
sure we have safe homes for them," said Jen-
ny Tirnnell of the FWC.
"Released pets are a common pathway
that allows exotic species into the wild. Often,
pet owners don't understand the difference
between native and nonnative species, or
they don't realize the possible effects releas-
ing a nonnative species can have.
"This event gives pet owners who can no
longer take care of their pets or no longer wish
to keep them a legal, ethical option."
Currently, the FWC is looking for potential
adopters in South Florida who are experi-
enced pet owners and are willing to provide a
home for one or two more animals.
All adopters must fill out the proper appli-
cation form before they receive surrendered
animals.
"This isn't a free pet giveaway," Tinnell
said. "We're looking for adopters with knowl-
edge and expertise in caring for exotic pets,
not people who have always wanted a pet and
think this is an opportunity to try their hand at
owning one they don't have to purchase."
Pet Amnesty Day will be March 21 at the
Miami MetroZoo. It's free and open to the
public. Exotic animals can be surrendered
to the FWC free of charge with no questions
asked and no penalties.
"We will not be penalizing any pet own-
ers who choose the responsible option of not
releasing their nonnative pets into the wild.
This is about curbing our ongoing problem of
exotic fish and wildlife," Tinnell said.
A veterinarian will examine each animal,
and every attempt will be made to place all
healthy animals with qualified adopters. Am-
nesty Day is also a family event.
There will be live animals on display, live
animal shows and fun activities. Experts will
be on hand to talk to about proper care of ex-
otic pets, so people who are thinking about
purchasing one can learn from credible
sources before they buy.
This is a chance for people to not only see
exotic animals, but get up close and even
touch them.

First water
reservation set for
Picayune Strand

West Palm Beach, FL Fulfill-
ing a 2008 commitment to guar-
antee water for restoration of the
Picayune Strand and Fakahatchee
Estuary, the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
Governing Board today adopted
the first-ever water reservation for
America's Everglades. This mile-
stone completes a year-long rule-
making process to develop the
reservation, which will serve to
protect the ecosystem and wild-
life on Florida's Southwest coast
for decades to come.
"The first Everglades water
reservation is a true restoration
achievement, even though it is not
a construction project that you
can see or visit," said Eric Buer-
mann, Chairman of the SFWMD
Governing Board. "Environmen-
tal restoration depends on water,
and today we have guaranteed
that these unique ecosystems will
have what they need."
A water reservation is a legal
mechanism to set aside water for
the protection of fish and wildlife
or public health and safety. When
a water reservation is in place,
volumes and timing of water at
specific locations are protected
for the natural system ahead of
consumptive uses such as new
development.

The adoption of today's water
reservation also allows the Dis-
trict to enter into a cost-sharing
partnership with the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers to continue
construction on Picayune Strand
restoration projects. Several proj-
ect phases have been completed
but more work remains.
Located north of Everglades
National Park on Florida's South-
west coast, the Picayune Strand
was drained in the 1960s for a
failed real estate development.
Road construction and canal ex-
cavations reduced aquifer storage,
increased freshwater discharges
to estuaries in the Ten Thousand
Islands, disrupted native plant
communities and increased the
frequency of wildfires.
In October 2003, Florida be-
gan restoring the Picayune Strand
as a part of the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan
(CERP). The restoration project
is restoring surface water flow to
vital wetlands to ensure that wet-
land plants and animals thrive,
including the endangered Florida
panther, and to improve the Ten
Thousand Islands estuaries. Ex-
pected benefits also include a
more natural fire regime and im-
proved aquifer recharge.
Construction features on the
approximately 55,000-acre proj-
ect include removing or degrad-
ing more than 260 miles of roads,
installing three pump stations,
backfilling and plugging 40 miles
of canals and distributing over-


ceeds benefit student incentive
programs.

You know you're living in 2009 because...


A chance to help
others in need in
hectic days

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
You know you're living in 2009
because:
*You accidentally enter your
password on the microwave.
*You haven't played solitaire
with real cards in years.

*You have a list of 15 phone
numbers to reach your family of
3.
*You e-mail the person who
works at the desk next to you.

*Your reason for not staying


in touch with friends and family
is that they don't have e-mail ad-
dresses.
*You pull up in your own
driveway and use your cell phone
to see if anyone is home to help
you carry in the groceries.
*Every commercial on televi-
sion has a Web site at the bottom
of the screen.
Leaving the house without
your cell phone, which you didn't
have the first 20 or 30 years of
your life, is now a cause for panic
and you turn around to go and
get it.

*You get up in the morning
and go on line before getting your
coffee.

*You are too busy to notice


there was no #7 on this list.
*You actually scrolled back up
to check that there wasn't a #7
on this list.
Author Larry Davies, in his
book Sowing Seeds of Faith in a
World Gone Bonkers, tells a story
with which many of us can iden-
tify.
He says the check-out line at
his local grocery store was long
and he was in a hurry.
Seeing another line nearby
nearly empty, he walked over and
stood behind the only customer
still to make a purchase.
A young twenty-something
woman was holding a small bas-
ket with fifteen to twenty jars of
baby food.
,There was nothing else in the
basket: just baby food.
"This is great," he thought.


"She'll only be a minute and I can
be on my way."
The clerk took the woman's
check for seven dollars and for-
ty-three cents and efficiently typed
in the numbers and slid it in the
proper slot on the register.
At this point the cash drawer
was supposed to open and a re-
ceipt printed, but not this time.
A light began to blink: "See
Manager."
The clerk called on the inter-
com for the manager while run-
ning the check through again on
her register.
The same sign kept flashing:
"See Manager."
"Oh no!" thought Davies. "Not
another delay. I'm in a hurry and
don't need for the cash register to
break down."
When the manager arrived,
however, he didn't even look
at the cash register, but instead


picked up the check and began to
talk to the customer.
Davies could feel the muscles
in his stomach tighten as the real-
ity of what was happening struck
him.
The check for seven dollars
and forty-three cents was no good
and the manager was quietly say-
ing she could not buy her baby
food here.
The clerk quickly set the gro-
ceries aside, closed her account
and began to ring up Davies' pur-
chase.
"She should manage her
money better!" Davies tried to
convince himself while leaving
the store.
But his flimsy excuses would
not erase the picture in his mind
of a grocery basket with jars of
baby food.
Davies writes, "At this point, I
want to finish the story by writing


how I approached the manager
and offered to pay for the pur-
chase of the baby food. It was the
right thing to do.
"I don't have much money,
but I can afford seven dollars and
forty-three cents. Instead, hiding
my light under a bowl, I turned
my head and walked away.
"There are no acceptable
excuses. I had a great opportu-
nity to help someone and walked
away."
Losing sight of who we are
and what we're called to do can
be easy in these hectic days.


In afterlife, Heaven remains the 'Desired Destiny'


The choice of the
beyond is ours to
make

By Jackie Miller
In last week's column I stated
that the 'Bible teaches only two
destinies, Hell and Heaven.
I pointed out that the Scrip-
tures teach that Hell is a horrible
place of eternal punishment.
Jesus said: "the gate that leads
to Hell is wide, and the way is
broad that leadeth to destruction
and many there be which go in
threat: because strait is the gate,
and. narrow is the way which
leadeth unto life, and few there be


that find it." (Matthew 7:13-14).
This is in spite of the fact "that
God is not willing than any should
perish but that all would come to
repentance."
Now let us turn our attention
to something more pleasant,
Heaven.
Our Lord says in John 14:2-3,
"In my Father's house are many
mansions; if it were not so I
would have told you. I go to pre-
pare a place for you. And if I go
and prepare a place for you, I will
come again and receive you unto
Myself; that where I am, there you
may be also."
Heaven will be a very wonder-
ful place.
For the FEW who go there


it will be beyond their wildest
dreams and they will be totally
surprised and amazed.
As we read in I Corinthians 2:9
"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
nor have entered into the heart
of man the things which God
has prepared for those who love
Him."
There is no way that the glo-
ries of Heaven can be adequately
described to us mortal beings.
The only way will be to see it.
Heaven will be the very oppo-
site of eternal punishment. Revela-
tion 21:4 says "And God will wipe
away every tear from their eyes:
there shall be no more death, nor
sorrow, nor crying. There shall
be no more pain, for the former


things have passed away."
There will be no weeping, no
wailing, and no gnashing of teeth
as will be happening in eternal
torment. W
But there will be nothing but
joy, peace and happiness beyond
description.
What a wonderful place Heav-
en will be.
But again, the choice is ours.
We cannot escape the conse-
quences if we make the wrong
choice.
We will not accidently end up
in Heaven.
Heaven is a prepared place for
a prepared people.
Our Lord says in Matthew 6:33,
"But seek ye first the Kingdom of


God and His righteousness, and
all these things shall be added
unto you."
To go to Heaven one must put
"spiritual things" above "material
or worldly things." .
The Apostle Paul said in Ga-
latians 2:20 "I am crucified with
Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not
I, but Christ liveth in me: and the
life which I now live in the flesh I
live by the faith of the Son of God,
who loved me, and gave Himself
for me."
The only ones who will make it
to Heaven, who have reached the
age of accountability, are those
who believe the Gospel of Jesus
Christ (that He died for their sins,
was buried, and arose again from


the dead- I Cor. 15:1-4) Repent of
Sins (regret that they have sinned
and decide to refrain from sinning
- Luke 13:5, Acts 17:30-31), Con-
fess faith in Jesus Christ Matthew
10:32-33, are Baptized into Christ
(immersed in water for the remis-
sion of sins to receive the Holy
Spirit- Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38, Acts
8:36-39, Romans 6:3-5, and then
remain faithful to Christ until they
die, Revelation 2:10, Acts 2:42, I
Corinthians 15:58.
*Jesus said concerning little
children, "of such is the Kingdom
of Heaven."


Wisdom from others; Darwin or Recidivism, and faith


Why resistance to
change is never a
good thing

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When there was a government
proposal to build a dam on Indian
lands, many of the native people
told the engineers that it wouldn't
work.
The government brought in
engineers and experts; tested
the soil, checked the ground for
structural stability, measured the
proposed water flow, looked into
the pressures against the dam
and did all of the calculations they
thought needed.
They went ahead and built the
dam.
Water flowed underneath it
and the banks supporting it be-
gan to give way.
The dam failed to stop the wa-
ter as was intended.
Someone asked one of the In-


dians how he knew that the dam
would not work there.
He told them "Simple, beavers
won't build dams on thatsite."
Someone had neglected to
read the signs in front of them:
Another observation from In-
dian culture was about pine trees
and palm trees.
The pine tree, they pointed
out, stands firm and erect, rigid
and is fixed.
They resist winds no matter
which way they blow.
The palm tree, though, is sub-
ject to winds and will bend over
when the winds get strong.
When the winds are very
strong, the pine tree snaps and
the palm tree lays down; only to
snap up again when the winds
have passed but the pine tree is
destroyed.
The palm adapts to what is go-
ing on around it, but remains true
to its roots; The pine tree loses
what it has to contribute to the
forest and environment.
Sometimes individuals and
groups are like that too.


People or groups or churches
become set in their ways and ig-
nore the winds around them the
best they can.
They resist anywinds of change
and the signs that are brought by
what is going on around them.
They may find themselves
alone and out of touch with the
people they hope to serve or are
living in another place.
Others adopt to change and
see what is being said by what is
happening or try to take meaning
from how things are unfolding.
The message is "What is God
saying by what is going on?"
Darwin and Lincoln both lived
in a time of cataclysmic change;
both saw things in a new way,
both read the signs of the times
differently than others around
them.
Darwin did not see the teach-
ings of the religion in his day as
others did; but he did not destroy
religion.
Rather, he gave a new under-
standing and with it a means of
incorporating revealed knowl-


edge to get closer to the truths
about God's creation.
The faithful learned to adapt
and incorporate what was given
to them; they remained true to
their heritage and roots after all.
They read the signs of their
times; learned and grew.
We live in a time of change,
too.
We need to ask "What is God
saying to us by what is going on
around us?"
We can change directions but
remain true to our roots, we can
adapt to what is happening in our
world, or we can seek to retreat.
The Reformation was a time
of such upheaval too; beliefs
changed with enlightenment and
,the gifts of revelation that God
shared; many faiths grew deeper
and stronger in spite of all of the
resistance to the winds of change
or failure to read the signs being
given.
My church is certainly not the
same church as I attended when
I was a child, or when I was or-
dained; but it is still the Church.


Personally, I have changed
as I have learned about life and
people, and the groups where I
would spend time have changed,
too.
Those we regard as contribut-
ing or "successful" have changed
with new knowledge to their
families, professions, interests,
lives.
The Lord talks to the Pharisees
when asked about giving thenm-a--
sign, and ,telling them "When.it
is evening and the sky is red, you
say 'it will be fair weather' and in
the morning 'it will be stormy for
the sky is red and overcast.'"
You know how to interpret the
sky but you do not know how to
interpret the signs of the times
(Matthew 16;1ff)."
The Pharisees didn't want to
interpret the signs; they would
mean changes and that's just


what type didn't want.
Jesus didn't come to see things
remain the same; He brought cat-
aclysmic change too, and those
daring to look to what was going
on and what was being shown to
them found a new life.
We need to look to the chang-
es in what is going on around us
and see what God is saying to
us.
When we get rigid, we cease
to grow, cease to respond; when
we are flexible, we can weather
the storms and see them as signs,
then adapt.
Darwin opened doors for
those would see what he had to
contribute; the faithful adapted,
moved forward and continued.
That's our heritage, that's our
gift, that's a sign of doing God's
will.

Greg Savitt of Jews for Jesus
will speak at Community United
Methodist Church, 401 SW First

11 a.m. Jews for Jesus uses cre-

issues to present the message that
Jesus is the Messiah to Jewish

Jesus.
Mr. Savitt was born and raised
as a conservative Jew in the Chi-

paying career as a CPA to become
a full time evangelist with Jews

To the Jews for Jesus mem-
bers, the evidence of the Old and

Elections
Continued From Page 1
King-Pittrell, who lives on
Southwest 12th Avenue, pointed
out that every time she leaves her
driveway, there's a slew of huge
humps on the road, which makes
the drive out of her neighborhood
treacherous.
"If you drive more than five
miles per hour, you'll hear the bot-
tom of your car hitting the asphalt
on the road," said King-Pittrell,
who's running against Wilson, a
six-year commissioner.
Two years ago, Berry, Walker-
Turner and Wilson were unop-
posed.
Now all three of them have to
fight for their political lives, with
Wilson, in particular, readily ac-
cepting the challenge ahead.
"All I can do is continue what
I've done for the city," Wilson
said.
"The citizens know I'm in their
corner and they know I'm not our
for myself."


Here's a listing of all three
South Bay commissioner races:
Shirley Walker-Thrner fac-
es Dr. Dorothy Davis
Esther Berry faces Earan-
za McKelvin
John Wilson faces Barbara
King-Pittrell
Walker-Turner is currently the
city's mayor, while Berry is the
vice-mayor.
Should either or both of those
candidates lose the March 10
election, the landscape of the
South Bay commission will surely
change.
In 2010, Commissioners Linda
Johnson and Joe Kyles will be up
for re-election.
A commissioner's term in
South Bay is two years long.
Changes may come
in Belle Glade and
Pahokee
Shelly Miller, a three-year com-
missioner, has decided not to run
for re-election.
That gives Reverend J. R. Har-


ris yet another opportunity to
claim a commissioner's seat.
Just last year, Harris was
soundly defeated by Commis-
sioner Michael Martin, who re-
placed the seat of former mayor
Ray Torres Sanchez.
Now he'll be fighting for Mill-
er's sea t i longtime resident
Mary Wilkerson.
It promises to be a very inter-
esting race, as the city's residents
will have to choose between two
candidates who claim to have
Belle Glade's best interests at
heart.
Vice-Mayor Mary Kendall will
be defending her coveted seat
against Willie Grear, who's the
son of Dr. Effie C. Grear.
Both races are set up be hot-
ly contested, which all of Belle
Glade's citizens will be watching
closely.
Fortunately for Commissioner
Gwendolyn Asia-Holley, her seat
is safe as she'll be unopposed.
Each commissioner's seat
in Belle Glade is good for three
years.

There will be no seats up for
grabs next year, as Martin and
Mayor Steve Wilson will be en-
tering their third years in their re-
spective seats.
Both will be up for re-election
in 2011.
Over in Pahokee, Vice-Mayor
Keith Babb will be fighting for his
seat against 25-year-old Nicholas
Larsen.
Commissioner Henry Craw-
ford, who's arguably the city's
most influential politician, will be
unopposed yet again.
In 2007, neither Babb nor
Crawford had to face opposition,
as their seats were safe.
Next year, Mayor Wayne Whi-
taker, Commissioner Allie Biggs
and Commissioner Diane Walker
will be up for re-election.
Each commissioner's term in
Pahokee lasts for two years.
Look for profiles of each can-
didate in The Sun for at least the
next two weekly issues.

"In a democracy, the highest office is that of citizens."
US Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter.

We agree. Yet too many citizens feel powerless to influence
the flow of events.

We give people a voice. Our Speak Out column is just one
example. We consider it an extension of the secret ballot
and a return of the values of the American Revolution.

How are we doing?
