Reigning beauty: Matos named Jr. Harvest Queen


Arrest

in '07




cold



case

Defendant faces life
in prison or the death
penalty if convicted

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - What can a sus-
pect do when law enforcement of-
ficials are coming for him?
Deputies say a suspect in a 2007
cold case file tried to run from the
sheriff's office, with little luck.
Marvin Jenkins, 36, was appre-
hended last week and charged in
connection with the killing.
The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office (PBSO) are hopeful they
have solved a cold case in arresting
the suspect.
The case involves the July 2007
homicide of Veronica Miles, who
was reportedly killed in a motel

Laura Matos was named this year's Junior Harvest Queen.


17 contestants featured


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - Laura Milagros
Matos, 15, is officially a queen.
The 2009 Jr. Harvest Queen
pageant winner seemed some-
what surprised after beating out
the field of 17 contestants.
The annual competition was
held on Saturday, March 28 at the
Dolly Hand Center.
Ms. Matos was sponsored by
Moya Photos.
"I can honestly say that the
whole experience was exciting,
shocking," Ms. Matos said.
The first through fourth run-
ners-up, plus Miss Congeniality,


were awarded to as follows:
1st runner-up - Alexia
Eighner
2nd runner-up - Danielle
Dixon
3rd runner-up - Jessica
Kirchman
4th runner-up - Ashley
Chancey
Miss Congeniality - Gabri-
ella Gold
Ms. Matos is now is eligible to
compete in the Harvest Queen
Pageant in 2011.
She'll be 16 on May 11, which
is reportedly too late to compete
in next year's Harvest Queen Pag-
eant.


According to rules, a contes-
tant must be at least 16 years old
by April in order to take part in
that year's Harvest Queen Pag-
eant.
Ms. Matos, who won largely
because of how she answered
her interview question, recalls
her win.
"When I was getting my hair
done, I told my mom that I wasn't
going to win," the young woman
said.
"The day of the pageant, I told
my mom that there's so many
beautiful girls in the competi-

It's here: A new look to



an old friend


By Tom Byrd
We live in a changing world. We're all
struggling to come to grips with a changing
and difficult economy. Citizens are adapt-
ing to new technology that is supposed to
change our lives for the better.
Your favorite community newspaper has
also made a change. The newspaper you're
holding in your hands no doubt this week
appears a little different than what you've
grown accustomed to over the years.
It's a major change for us, but one we're
confident our readers and advertisers will
appreciate.
Beginning with this edition, The Sun is
publishing in a new, modern "compact"
format vs. the traditional "broadsheet" for-
mat.
It reflects a design that studies have
shown is popular with readers and advertis-
ers alike.
But no matter how you look at it, it's still
your hometown newspaper!
The most noticeable difference, of
course, is the size of the product. The new
"compact" is smaller -- but don't let its size
fool you. The new "compact" offers tremen-
dous advantages over the broadsheet and
more and more newspaper companies are
starting to take notice:
* The new size provides greater conve-
nience to readers. It's easier to hold, easier
to read.
* The new format allows us greater
flexibility when it comes to packaging and
design. We're confident you'll like the way
content and features are organized and pre-
sented.
* Most important, the new compact will
allow us to expand the use of color in the
publication. With the new format, you'll see
more color. The pages will be more exciting
and the photographs will be more vibrant.
We're also confident the new format
will be attractive to our advertisers. We rec-
ognize times are tough and businesses are
struggling to survive. We are constantly in
search of ways to improve our products and
provide advertisers with an effective and


cost-affordable way to reach consumers in
their market. We think the new format gives
our advertisers more "bang for their buck!"
The new compacts provide greater im-
pact for advertisers. Again, studies have
consistently shown readers tend to recall -
and react - to advertisements in compacts
at a greater rate than they do in traditional
broadsheets.
The most common complaint we hear
from our advertisers is that there are too
many ads on a page. Ad clutter: The more
ads on the page, the less likely their ad is to
be spotted by a reader.
Compacts offer an alternative. The overall
page size is smaller. There are fewer ads on
a page, so each ad stands out much more
than if it were on a page crowded with doz-
ens of small ads.
Finally, the new compact is much more
efficient for us to produce. That's important
in these tough economic time. We've been
the Lake Okeechobee area's Nb. 1 commu-
nity newspaper publisher for many years
and we have every intention of continuing
in that role.
Despite the new look and the compact
size, rest assured everything else you've
come to expect from The Sun newspaper re-
mains the same. We're still your hometown
newspaper providing you with the same
great news and information you've come to
expect from us.
We hope you like our new look. Please
let us know your thoughts and suggestions
for improvements. We appreciate your con-
tinued support and look forward to serving
you in the future!

HRMC Focuses on Employee Health


By Glenda Wilson
Hendry Regional Medical Center is help-
ing its employees to stay healthy and fit.
Through a grant provided by the Lake
Okeechobee Rural Health Network, the
hospital is sponsoring a Path to Wellness
program for its staff, along with many from
the Hendry County Health Department and
Palm Terrace.
The eight-week program, which started
on Feb. 18, offers incentives for employees
to lose weight, stop smoking, eat more nu-
tritiously and lead healthier lives.
It also incorporates the continued training
of the diabetes program, which is already in
place at the hospital.
In addition, the program provides free
blood tests (lipid panel, H&H and blood sug-
ar), walking incentives during work breaks,
fitness center discounts, dietary/nutritional
education and more.
Employees have been working diligently
to 'lose those pounds,' and become the win-
ner of the $50 cash prize, offered at each
two-week weigh-in.
Congratulations go to the first winner,
Paul Miller of Hendry Regional Medical Cen-

centive to live healthier lifestyles.
ter's IT Department.
During the first two weeks of the Path to
Wellness Program, Paul lost a whopping 6.7


percent of his total body weight - 17 whole
pounds.
On Feb. 18, Paul weighed in at 252
pounds, and by March 4, he was down to
235 pounds! That's what it's all about.
If you don't believe participants are put-
ting forth their best efforts, you may be
surprised to learn that hospital employees
have lost a total of 145 pounds in only two
weeks!
Weigh-ins will continue every other
week, and at the end of the eight-week peri-
od, the person who loses the most percent-
age of body weight will receive a flat screen
TV, valued at $500.
- If you or your organization is interested in
learning more about the employee wellness
program, call Toni Pavey-McDaniel, Hendry
Regional Medical Center's Corporate Health
Director, at 863-983-1123.

Poison prevention


- Not just for kids


By Pat Dobbins, RN.,/H.SA.
Administrator, Hendry/Glades County
Health Dept.
Most people
think about children
when it comes to
poison dangers and
poison prevention,
but many adults put
c themselves at risk of
poisoning every day.
Accidental poi-
soning and over-
doses have been in-
creasing and experts
think that it's the increase use of prescription
pain killers, sedatives, psycho-therapeutic
drugs and other narcotics that have caused
this increase.
Adults need to take their medications re-

Black Gold Jubilee Children's
Fishing Tournament
This year's Black Gold Jubilee Children's
Fishing Contest will be held Saturday, April
4, 8 a.m. at the Belle Glade Marina.
A free lunch will be provided to children,
and trophies will be awarded in each divi-
sion (Toddlers, Division 1, Division II and Di-
vision Ill) for biggest fish, most weight and
smallest fish.
Applications can be picked up at the
Belle Glade Chamber of Commerce. There

The contest is open to children up to 15

sponsibly!
Be sure to read the warning labels, and
ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have
any questions.
There are so many medications that can
be dangerous if they-are mixed with alcohol,
other medications and even certain foods.
Be sure to tell your doctor about any
medications that you are taking, including
any vitamins or over the counter medica-
tions.
If you or your child is required to take any
liquid medications, please use the proper
measuring tool, don't "guess!"
A teaspoon from your silverware drawer
is different than a regular measured tea-
spoon.
You don't want to accidentally give your
child too much medication do you?
Parents should make sure that all medi-


cations are out of reach not only for younger
kids, but for teenagers as well.
Some teenagers have overdosed on med-
ications that were easily accessible in their
parent's medicine cabinets!
All medicines should be kept in their orig-
inal containers with the proper labeling and
you should never share your medications!
If you ever have any questions about poi-
son prevention or information'on a possible
poisoning, you can call the Florida Poison
Information Center Network (FPICN).
They provide emergency services 24
hours a day, seven days a week (1-800-222-
1222).
The calls are routed to one of three na-
tionally accredited poison centers in Tampa,
Jacksonville or Miami, where trained staff
can help answer your questions and man-
age poisoning emergencies.

Palm Sunday: The way it was and now


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
This Sunday will be Palm Sunday.
It is about the celebration of a triumphal
entry; Jesus will enter Jerusalem and spend
His last earthly week sharing a meal and
teaching, but also being arrested and tried,
being victimized and crucified, being de-
nied, betrayed, falsely accused and killed.
As you read the events of this week; you
can imagine the thought of "Some triumph!"
Sunday begins with a borrowed donkey; and
Jesus entering with His followers spreading
palm branches along the way and calling
out "Hosanna" - "Lord, save now." Jesus'
message is by this time taking hold; crowds
cheer Him on and He enters with more than
just a few friends.
The gospel accounts of the week will
reveal a group of followers that aren't sure;
who leave Him, who waver.
It will be all right, though, the triumph is
not in the short run or in a few moments of
crisis; the triumph is in the long run.
In three hundred years, the whole world
will be changed; those who were persecuted
will be the leading force in the world, those
who doubted will be pillars of assurance to
others, those who were in power will have
fallen by the wayside and the faithful will
shape the destiny of the future of humanity.
Job, who wrote "I know that my redeemer
liveth..." foreshadows the message of tri-

Faithful the nation over will be celebrat-
ing Palm Sunday-this weekend.
umph: it will work out for those who hold
on and are faithful.
Today, many of the things that were once


taken for granted are no longer as they were.
We're seeing losses of homes and rises in
hopelessness at a scale never before seen.
- Jobs are being lost at alarming rates; few
go to work with the assurance that they will
have a place for years to come.
The dreams we shared; education for our
children or a comfortable retirement, are
being priced out of existence and many are
working years beyond what they planned.
Financial betrayal seems to abound; a
man can betray the trust of others and divert
billions of dollars and ruin others lives for
generations to come.
There are two wars underway; one is
supposed to be winding down but will it
mean shifting troops to another front instead
of real peace?
Nations are now vying for resources that
were once plentiful for us; prices will go up
and shortages will affect what we once took
for granted.
We can ask "Where is te 'triumph' in all
of this?" too.
Going back to that first Palm Sunday, is
it apparent that the road was as difficult in
those days.
What carried people through, and what
gave a final victory was faith, and the trust
that things would work out as God intend-
ed.
There would be suffering and difficulty
before joy or fulfillment; but it would come
to those who believed and held to their val-


ues.
It took a long time for some of Jesus' fol-
lowers to realize just what had happened
and that the victory was theirs, but the day
came and the world was changed.
Over time, the faithful would become the
moving force in the world and lay the foun-
dations of the societies that we see today.
Every now and again, I see a triumph in
somebody's life that has come only after
pain or hardship.
I have known substance abusers who
have reformed, people who were wiped
out financially but started again and suc-
ceeded after learning the lessons of failure,
couples who have thought a relationship
was doomed and then decided to try once
more; - stories that may seem few and far
between - but proof that Palm Sunday has a
message for us all.
In the long run, the faithful will be victori-
ous, the events of the day may bring hard-
ship and disaster, but victory comes to those
who hold on to what they believe. Those
that cried "Lord save now, "were not disap-
pointed; they stand as witnesses to us all
and their faith can be ours too; even in dark
times and when our world seems uncertain
and without hope.
Their victory is ours if we see things in
the long perspective, God's perspective - and
continue on even in the midst of turmoil..

A Spanish Mission in La Florida


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The ship reared and bucked like a spir-
ited horse as it rose and plunged in the long,
cresting waves of the Gulf.
The experienced helmsman steered the
sturdy vessel through the advancing seas,
easing the rudder to port, while maintaining
a true heading.
The captain watched the ship's progress
and knew the steady winds would bring his
vessel to the shores of the Calusa Indians by
morning.
His alert, dark eyes wandered across the
ships billowing canvas sails and wet, heav-
ing deck before coming to rest on the priests
that had gathered around the ship's main
mast.
The men were young and bore the an-
gelic appearance of innocence.
Their faces shonewith a religious fervor.
One young man caught the captain's
gaze and smiled serenely at him.
The captain turned to avert the placid
stare and gazed across the rolling, turquoise
sea with an uncertainty.
His troubled conscience struggled to jus-
tify the madness of this voyage.
Nightmarish images from the past
emerged, and his face hardened as he re-
hearsed the horrible stories told by the cast-
aways of the doomed ship, "La Rosa."
His crew had plucked two men and one
woman from a leaky dugout that was miles
from La Florida's shores.
"Three years of Calusa enslavement had
forever marked the minds and bodies of
those poor survivors," thought the captain.
Uneasy with his vivid memories, he turned
and faced the gentle sea breezes, but found
no escape from his dilemma.


This Tall Tale yarn is fiction, but reflects
the real lives of priests, who risked their lives
to convert the war-like Calusa.
It is time to take "A Walk in The Past" and
read about the Spanish efforts to establish a
new mission in the Calusa Indian Nation.
In 1678, the Spanish Governor of Florida
sent an expedition to ransom the Spanish
castaways enslaved by the Calusa Indians.
The militia was a mixed group of Spanish
soldiers and Tocobago Indian warriors.
The expedition traveled in dugout canoes
down the Apallacia River to the west coast
of Florida, then south to the Calusa Indian
Nation.
The Spanish expedition was disrupted
when their Indian allies deserted prior to en-
tering Calusa territory.
The Tocobago Indians fled in the night,
while the Spanish soldiers were sleeping.
The Spanish felt unsure because of their
reduced force, so the leaders aborted the res-
cue mission and returned to North Florida.
The Spanish Governor of Florida re-
ceived the leader's report and reacted rather
strangely.
His response was probably based on
hard facts - he lacked a strong, punitive mili-
tary force, so he took the only other course
of action and wrote a letter to the Council of
Indies, requesting that a mission be estab-
lished in the Calusa Indian Nation.
The governor was hoping a mission
would convert the war-like Calusa.
He probably calculated that a shortage in
cold Toledo steel could be supplemented by
another two-edged sword: the gospel.
Priests would be needed to implement a
mission, but where would he find them?
The Council of Indies reviewed the letter
and contacted the Spanish King, who sent


orders to the Governor of Cuba and the Bish-
op of Santiago de Cuba to establish missions
in South Florida using resources and person-
nel from Cuba.
The King told the bishop to find volun-
teers and ordered the Governor of Cuba to
outfit the volunteers with passage to Florida
using royal funds.
The bishop found volunteers and re-
quested funds for their traveling expenses.
At this stage, the wheels of bureaucracy
started turning, bringing the mission project
to a halt for many years.
The bishop claimed the. church was
broke, and the governor claimed the royal
coffer was empty, so the priests weren't
sent.
In 1683, the Council of the Indies inquired
again on the status of the Calusa mission.
The bishop reported the original volun-
teers wanted to be reinstated in their church
positions when they returned from the Calu-
sa missions.
This created turmoil in the church, be-
cause other priest would be forced to give
up their positions.
The bishop tried to skirt this problem.
He suggested sending Jesuits or Domini-
cans instead, but the-Council of Indies was
afraid it would cause problems with the
Franciscans, who were already established
in Central and North Florida.
The Council asked the Franciscans, but
.they reported there was already a shortage
of priests in North Florida.
In 1690, a Calusa chief came strutting
through the new bishop's church doors.
The ruling Calusa Casiqee had sent a Calusa
representative to Cuba with twenty other
Calusa Indians.
The Indians asked for baptism and con-


version to the-Christian faith.
Documents indicate that the Calusa made
the crossing in their ocean-going dugouts.
In 1697, the Council of Indies forced the
Franciscans to send volunteers to the Calu-
sas.
Five Franciscan priests were selected and
sent to South Florida.
They sailed from Cuba to present day
Key West, and then to the Province of Calus,
near present day Port Charlotte.
The Florida Governor's letter, written in
1680, requesting missions for the Calusa had
finally come to pass.
However, the slowwheels of bureaucracy
probably sealed the fate of those forgotten
Spanish Castaways that prompted the letter.
There is no mention of Spanish Cast-
aways in the documents of the five priests.
The castaways were probably sacrificed
because seventeen years is a bit too long in
the hands of the Calusa.
Remember our ole friend, Fontanedo?
His older brother and 42 fellow castaways
were sacrificed during the seventeen years
he was enslaved to the Calusa.
There will be more "Tale Tales" in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when-
Spanish priests experience trials and tribula-
tions in the Calusa Indian Nation.
I hope you have enjoyed this story. Con-
tact the Clewiston Museum if you have ques-
tions, artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale of a
Tale" that you would like to share.
The Museum's hours are Monday through
Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 9
a.m. to 1 p.m.

Pahokee opens spay and


neuter facility for animals


Grand opening attracted
more than 100 people on
Tuesday

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - A spay/neuter clinic has, at
last, found a home in this close-knit com-
munity.
With the city's best feature being the love
residents show for each other, it has now
been officially extended to animals.
Not that animals weren't show love prior
to Tuesday's grand opening; it's just that
they now have their own special facility to
be taken care of.
Though the grand opening of the clinic,
located at 3615 State Road 715, occurred
Tuesday, Mar. 31, the animal facility actu-
ally opened its doors to the public yesterday
(Apr. 1).
Nonetheless, Tuesday's grand opening
ceremony went relatively well, as more than
100 well-wishers appeared at the event.
Michael E. Jackson, liaison/consultant to
Palm Beach County Commissioner Jess San-
tamaria (District 6), was among the special


guests who appeared at the ceremony.
Vince Bonvento, Palm Beach County's
Public Safety Director/Assistant County Ad-
ministrator, Dianne Suave, the county's
Animal Care and Control Director and Karen
Buchan, the county's Community Projects
Manager for the Animal Care and Control
Division, were the other notable guests of
honor at the event.
From 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, ap-
proximately 70 people who signed up for
spay/neuter services to their animals were
the beneficiaries of Frontline flea and tick
control equipment.
They also received, in addition to a free
appointment, a bag and/or can of dog and/
or cat food for their pets.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony, which took
place at 10:30 a.m., was followed by lunch,
complete with hot dogs and cold drinks.
A host of prizes were given out to those
who attended the ceremony.
For more information on the new spay/
neuter clinic, please visit the web at www.
pbcgov.com/pubsafety/animal.
You could also contact the clinic at 924-

Double shooting at apartment complex


Motive of non-fatal incident
is unknown; both victims
have been treated for their
injuries

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - Two men were shot in
connection with an alleged robbery over
the weekend, according to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office.


According to the sheriff's office, the inci-
dent, which occurred in the late night hours
of March 27, involved two men of two dif-
ferent races.
It's not clear at this time whether or not
the double shootings were gang related.
What is known, however, is that two His-
panic males - Marcos Macias-Cacias, 27 and
Jose Antonio Rojas Bustamante, 25 - may
have been struck by two unknown black
men..
The shootings, which reportedly took
place at 11:35 p.m. - just 25 minutes before
midnight - occurred at the 1300's block of


Palm Glades Drive, the site of the Palm
Glades apartment complex.
While the motive of it all is unknown,
Bustamante, who was shot in the arm, is
currently in stable condition.
As for Macias-Cacias, who was shot in
the chest area, he is now listed as being in
critical condition.
The two victims were transported sepa-
rately to St. Mary's Hospital and Delray Medi-
cal Center.
The Palm Beach County Violent Crimes
Task Force is now continuing to gather some
more information on this case, which they


hope could lead to an apprehension of the
unknown suspects.
Anyone who can provide pertinent infor-
mation that will lead up to an arrest should
call the PBSO at 688-4000.
You could also contact Crime Stoppers at
1-800-458-TIPS.
Staff Writer Naji Tobias can be reached at nto-

Be careful of alligators this time of year


Spring is when Florida's alligators start
getting active, and the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission (FWC) is
urging Floridians and visitors to be cautious
when having fun in and around water.
Alligators abound in all 67 counties and
have shared marshes, swamps, rivers and
lakes with people for centuries.
But, because more individuals are seek-
ing waterfront property and water-related
activities increase during the warm months,
people should be alert when they are in ar-
eas where alligators could be present.
State law prohibits the harassing of alliga-
tors, and it is against the law to feed them.
The FWC recommends supervising chil-
dren closely when they are playing in or
around water.
There are other precautionary measures
people should take to reduce potential con-
flicts with alligators, and they are available
in the "Living with Alligators" brochure at
MyFWC.com/gators.
The FWC annually receives more than
16,000 alligator-related complaints.
The agency removes about 8,500 alliga-
tors each year when the reptiles present po-
tential danger to people or property.
According to the FWC, if you encounter
an alligator.that poses a threat to you, your
pets or your property, and the alligator is


iil/rAsniey mlmn
Experts are urging Florida residents to be more cautious than normal when liv-
ing near alligators.


more than 4 feet long, call the FWC's toll-
free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-
GATOR (392-4286).
The telephone number is the primary
contact for all alligator complaints and is
available to customers 24 hours a day.


Alligators are an important part of Flori-
da's heritage and play a valuable role in the
ecosystems where they live.
For more information on alligator behav-
ior, go to MyFWC.com/gators.

Sugar deal may be downsized


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida

The purchase of U.S. Sugar by South
Florida Water Management District (SF-
WMD) for Everglades restoration may not
be as sweet a deal as originally announced.
In response to published speculations that
economic conditions have forced the sale to
be downsized from 180,000 acres to 75,000
acres, Deena Reppen, SFWMD's deputy ex-
ecutive director for governmental and public
affairs, admitted that high level talks are go-
ing on.
Her remarks came during the Friday,
March 27 meeting of the County Coalition for
Responsible Management of Lake Okeecho-
bee, St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Estuaries
and Lake Worth Lagoon. This organization
is made up of county commissioners repre-
senting 10 counties in South Florida. The as-
sembled commissioners also heard a report
on the condition of Lake Okeechobee by Su-
san Gary of SFMWD and a report on the re-
habilitation of Herbert Hoover Dike by Ingrid
Bon of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers
(COE). Ms. Reppen told the commissioners
that they would be informed of any deci-
sion made. She also said that any proposed
changes would have to be approved by the
SFWMD Board of Governors. The sale was
to originally consist of all U.S. Sugar's assets
of 180,00 acres for $1.34 billion. Speculation
is that the sale would be reduced to 75,000
acres. Lee County Commissioner Ray Judah
expressed the opinion that if the sale were
reduced to 75,000 acres, there would not be
enough land for water treatment. He said
that amount of land would be needed for
water storage alone.

Ms. Reppen said the sale is proceeding
toward a closing date of Sept. 25. Of the
180,000 acres under consideration, certain
tracts would be available for local govern-
ment use. Pahokee, Belle Glade, South Bay
Clewiston and the Florida Inland Navigation
District have requested tracts of land. Hendry
County Commissioner Kevin McCarthy noted
that if the sale were reduced to 75,000 acres,
the lands being considered for local govern-
ment use would not be involved in the sale.
If the originally announced 180,000 acre sale
goes through, all land in sugar production
could be leased back to U.S. Sugar for seven
years. Mr. McCarthy said that in that case the
lands being considered for local government
use are in sugar care production and would
not be available for seven years.
Ms. Reppen addressed the concern ex-
pressed about the economic impact of the
sale on the area. In this year's budget she
said SFWMD has set aside $2 million from
projects and salary to fund capital improve-
ments and infrastructure in the local com-
munities affected by the sale. There is also a
potential for other sources of funds to help
the communities involved offset the loss of
income that would be caused by the closing
of U.S. Sugar. The governor's proposed fis-
cal year 2009/10 budget contains $5 million
to help areas impacted by the land acquisi-
tion. The governor's Office of Tourism Trade
and Economic Development has visited the
area to be impacted and is working to pro-
vide economic assistance.
Turning from the acquisition process,
Tom Teets, Everglades policy manager
gave an overview of the process to develop
a plan to use.the land once it is acquired.
Pubic meetings were held to get the input
of all interested parties. Next modeling will
be done to look at different configurations
of land possible. In June a draft of possi-
ble configurations will be presented to the
SFWMD Governing Board. The draft will
be refined in July and a final draft of land
configuration and preliminary costs will be
given to the board of governors in August
before the closing in September.
Dr. Susan Gray of SFWMD urged water
conservation noting that rainfall in the 16
county area served by SFWMD is below
average and more dry weather is expected.
She said that Lake Okeechobee has a re-
surgence of submerged vegetation and the
quality of the lake water is improving. She
said water quality is fairly good for this time
of year. However, she said the salinity levels
are increasing in the St. Lucie River. Turn-
ing to dike rehabilitation, Ms. Bon noted
that the lake can fill up six times faster than
water can be let out. The dike was com-
pleted in 1962. In the 1980s COE began to
see problems with it. In the 1990s studies
were done and in 2005 construction was
started on dike rehabilitation. After Hurri-
cane Katrina, further study was done. The
section between Port Mayaca and Belle
Glade is being rehabilitated now by install-
ing cutoff walls in the center of the dike to
prevent seepage. This section is scheduled
to be completed by 2013. The Moore Haven
to Belle Glade section is scheduled rehabili-
tation next..
Commissioner Judah expressed his
thanks that SFMWD and COE were working
together to try to restore the pulse releases
to the Caloosahatchee River in response to
higher salinity level. Commissioner Russell
Echols of Glades County thanked SFWMD
for their help with the Moore Haven and
Pierce Canal projects.

fire.
It may have taken more than a year, but
investigators finally caught up with the man,
who was arrested on a search warrant in the
late night hours of Mar. 27.
Upon seeing detectives in Runyon Village,
according to PBSO detectives, the defendant
fled the area.
For a few moments afterward, PBSO of-
ficials feared they would not find the man,
having conducted a search which included
K-9 units, an Eagle Helicopter and District
Five road patrol units.
The search began at about 10 p.m. that
night near his residence (312 A Runyon Vil-
lage in Belle Glade), and lasted for nearly


three hours.
The suspect was found as he waited for a
ride in Runyon Village.
The suspect, who was captured on Satur-
day, March 28 at 12:48 a.m., was reportedly
booked into the West County Jail on first-
degree murder charges.
His alleged connection to the killing is still
unclear, although authorities say they have
found evidence to support his involvement.
As previously, reported, Miles, 20, was
burned to her death in a motel fire on the
morning of Sunday, July 15, 2007.
According to Don DeLucia, the Palm
Beach .County Fire Rescue's public informa-
tion officer, a fire call came from the Royal
Inn in Belle Glade at 9:44 a.m. on that morn-
ing.
Teri Barbera, the spokeswoman for the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
said that deputies responded to the scene at


9:45 a.m., exactly one minute after the fire
call came to the fire rescue.
Seven minutes later, at 9:51 a.m., fire res-
cue workers came to the scene, where there
was smoke coming out of the motel room
that the victim was in, the public informa-
tion officer said.
According to Barbera, the fire rescue
pulled the victim out of her motel - room
three - and extinguished the fire.
In the next room, one person suffered
from smoke inhalation but was not taken to
the hospital, according to DeLucia.
DeLucia recalls what could have possibly
started the fire.
"There was a small fire that started on the
victim's bed," said DeLucia.
The victim was pronounced dead at the
scene.
The investigation, which was open with
no suspects at the time, revealed two key

tion," she continued.
"She told me to think positive and just
hope for the best."
Going into the competition, Ms. Matos
obviously believed that any of the girls was
considered worthy of being crowned.
However, when Ms. Matos was up for
questioning, her confidence, all of a sudden,
was on full display for the audience to see.
"Wherever I go, especially on stage, I get
really confident in whatever I set out to do,"
Ms. Matos said.
Steve Weeks, the master of ceremonies,
asked her what her favorite colors were and
why.
Ms. Matos responded with these words:
"My favorite color is red because it is the
most passionate and most romantic color
I've ever seen."
"My mom was recording and she was
looking at me and the camera at the same
time," she said.


"I can't explain it, there were so many
things going through my head at the time,"
Ms. Matos continued.
"My mom came away very impressed
with me and suddenly, I thought I could win
after that."
Now, Laura is focusing on her studies at
Glades Day School, where she plans to grad-
uate high school in 2011.
After that, Ms. Matos would like to attend
Florida International University, where, if all
goes as planned, she'll become a double
major in psychology and dance.
What does she want to do after graduat-
ing from college?
She wants to become a psychologist,
where she would have the opportunity to
work with kids.
"I'm not really sure how I could be an in-
spiration to children, but when I go to some
hospitals and see some kids in need, I feel
like I could help them," Ms. Matos said.
"That's what inspired me to have this
dream."
Laura Matos, the mother of Laura Mila-
gros, considers her daughter a 'miracle girl.'
Interestingly, Milagros is the Spanish term


Submitted to INI/www.moyaphotos.com
They were more than just pretty faces in the Junior Harvest Queen Pageant;
the girls responded intelligently and impressively to the questions they were
asked.


for 'miracle'.
"When she was born, she was a big
baby," Matos said of her daughter, who was
born at 11 pounds and one ounce.
"It was tough for both of us because at
one point, I thought she was going to die,"
the mother continued.
"The reason why she wants to become a
psychologist is because she does not want
kids to suffer like her older sister did."
Ms. Matos's older sister, Natalie, died
from leukemia 11 years ago.
A healthy girl when she was born, Natalie
contracted leukemia at age four.
Natalie died from the disease when she
was just six years old.


Ms. Matos was only three years old when
Natalie passed away
Natalie, who was born in 1991, would
have been 18 years old today, according to
the mother.
"I think Laura has a lot of confidence in
herself and she's a pretty girl," she said of
her daughter.
"She's very friendly to everyone and I
believe she'll have many doors open for her
everywhere she goes.
"I thank God everyday for Laura being in
my life," Matos continued.
"She's very special to me."

Children's week reco


ized in the Glades


Anticipated budget cuts
may reduce programs in the
near future

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES - A children's day picnic will be
held tomorrow morning at Rardin Park.
In honor of the 14th annual Florida Chil-
dren's Week, the area will do whatever it can
to raise awareness about children's issues.
According to Jason Zaborske, the state's
Children's Week coordinator, funding and
" staff for children's programs and services
are at great risk of being lost to a slew of
slated budget cuts for the state in fiscal year
: 2009-2010.
Throughout the state, activities will be
geared toward that focus, with the economy
currently suffering from a deep recession.
Children's Week, which began on March
29, ends on April 5.
Autrie Williams, who's the family servic-
es coordinator for PEPPI Head Start in Belle
Glade, has been instrumental in the events
leading up to the big picnic, including a Val-
entine's Day Gift Project, which was held on
Feb. 13 in South Bay.
According to her, children from the Mary
Alice Fortin Family Development Center

In honor of Children's Week, locals raise awareness of children's issues.


(South Bay) and the PEPPI Head Start Pro-
gram (Belle Glade) created more than 100
valentine gifts for seniors, which were host-
ed by Theresa Fordham-Jones, who's the
executive secretary for Fla. State Represen-
tative Priscilla Taylor.
The valentine gifts, Williams said, were
presented at these three locations:
West County Senior Center (Belle
Glade)
NOAH's Pioneer Terrace and Glades
Diamond sites (Belle Glade)
Tanner Park (South Bay)
Over the past few weeks, each munici-
pality (Belle Glade, South Bay and Pahokee)
hosted a project, entitled 'Helping of the


Hands', which were followed by a series of
performances from the area's children.
As a result, the children's hand prints
were reportedly transported to Tallahassee
in honor of Children's Week.
The hand prints were on full display at
the State Capitol this past Sunday in the Ro-
tunda, according to Williams.
The children's programs which partici-
pated in the project were as follows:
Little Hands Learning Center
Johnson Family Day Care Center
NOAH Inc./Building Blocks
Mary Alice Fortin Family Develop-
ment Center
Palm Beach County Head Start


East Coast Migrant Head Start Pro-
gram
We Care CDC, Inc.
Redland Christian Migrant Associa-
tion
Thomas Family Day Care Center
LSF/PEPPI Head Start Program
Now, as the picnic takes center stage,
Williams is hoping for a high turnout, as
she's expecting at least 100 adults and more
than 500 children to be at tomorrow morn-
ing's event.
Organizations slated to be at the picnic
include the aforementioned children's pro-
grams, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of-
fice, the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue,
commissioners and officials from the cities
of Belle Glade, South Bay and Pahokee, to
name just a few.
"We will not be turning anyone away,"
Williams said.
In addition, the guest speaker will be Mi-
chael E. Jackson, who's currently the liaison/
consultant for Palm Beach County Commis-
sioner Jess Santamaria.
The event is free of charge, according to
Williams.
Rardin Park is located on State Road 715,
between Belle Glade and Pahokee.

Week picnic, you can contact Autrie Wil-
liams at 996-1718.
