BELLE GLADE - Authorities last
Wednesday (Apr. 15) arrested Rev.
James Richard Harris for allegedly
performing sexual acts on three
teenage boys and a girl.
The 61-year-old man is charged
with unlawful sexual activity of a
minor, lewd or lascivious battery,
promoting sexual performance of
a child and child abuse.
Harris, who last month was
thoroughly defeated by Mary Wilk-
erson in the race for a Belle Glade
commissioner's seat, was arrested
in Brandon at about 9:20 a.m. by
the U.S. Marshals Service's Florida
Regional Fugitive Task Force and
the Hillsborough County Sheriff's
Office, according to published re-
ports.
At the time of Harris's arrest

Calling All Fathers: Your Children Need You


By J.R. Thicklin
Do you remember television shows and
movies like "Father Knows Best," "Father
of The Bride," Tyler Perry's "Daddy's Little
Girls," "The Cosby Show," "My Three Sons"
or "Good Times?" If you noticed the com-
mon theme amongst all of these movies and
shows is the presence of fathers. Fathers are
a vital part of life and their presence or lack
of presence can impact their children and
family for generations. Fathers help to shape
the future and destiny of their children and
family. The silence or absence of fathers can
be seen in every aspect of life.
Research has shown us and the social ills
have taught us that the absence of a com-
mitted father in the lives of his children has
tremendous consequences. Almost 75 per-
cent of American children who grow up in
single-parent homes will experience poverty
before they turn 11-years-old, compared to
only 20 percent for families where there are
two parents. The majority of teen mothers
come from homes without fathers. Seventy
percent of juveniles in state operated institu-
tions come from fatherless homes. Eighty-
five percent of all youths sitting in prisons


grew up in a fatherless home. -
FATHERS ARE IMPORTANT and they must
recognize their vital importance. The sad re-
ality is that many men are not prepared to be
fathers and are not equipped with the tools,
skills or insight to become effective fathers.
President Barack Obama has made it quite
clear that building stronger families is one
of his top initiatives. He has called for men
to return home to their families and take re-
sponsibility for their families and well being.
In response to this great need and the im-
pact of Fatherlessness on our children; First
Care Family Resource Center in conjunction
with the National Fatherhood Initiative is
proud to offer the 24/7 Dad Program that is
designed to help equip the dads in bur com-
munity with the skills they need to be in-
volved, responsible, and committed fathers.
NFI offers the most innovative fatherhood
curricula in the country to help best serve all
kinds of fathers at their points of need. We
address parenting from a Father Perspective,
celebrating and encouraging the vital role of
fathers in the life of their children. Whether
you are a Expecting Father, Current Father
or a Seasoned Father; The 24/7 Dad Pro-
gram will help you develop parenting skills


and develop a Fathering Character that will
strengthen you in becoming a responsible,
and rewarding father. We encourage all fa-
thers and all organizations and agencies
working with men and fathers to be a part
of this. very vital initiative. Whether you are
a Day Care Center, Beacon Center, Pediatric
Office etc. this is an opportunity to partner
and participate in a proven initiative that will
enhance the skills of Fathers and build stron-
ger relationships with their children.
The 24/7 Dad program is being offered at
First Care Family Resource Center located at
233 West Avenue A, Suite C in Belle Glade
in the Goodwill Plaza. Class Orientation will
begin on Thursday, April 23, 2009 and the
first class session will begin on Thursday,
April 30, 2009. The program requires a eight
week commitment and is free. Upon com-
pletion of this program the participant will
be a part of a Celebration Ceremony. Food
is served at every meeting. For more Infor-
mation call 561-996-6888 or 561-201-2443

Q-Fest attracts fans and celebrities Imm I


INI/Naji Tobias
Pahokee's own Damon Weaver interviews fellow native Anuqan Boldin during
the autograph signing session at the Q-Fest.


Anquan Boldin returns to
the Glades for annual event

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PAHOKEE - Anquan Boldin loves the kids
and everyone in his native hometown.
That was evident throughout the past
weekend, as Boldin came back home to
host his fifth annual Q-Fest.
The three-time NFL Pro Bowler brought
with him the likes of Hall of Famer Michael
Irvin, 2009 Pro Bowl MVP and Arizona Car-
dinals teammate Larry Fitzgerald, Carolina
Panthers wideouts Steve Smith and Kenny
Moore and a host of other fellow celebrities
to Pahokee for the Apr. 17 celebrity basket-
ball game.
Fans from all over witnessed the special
occasion at the Pahokee High School gym-
nasium, which was fully packed.
Those who attended were treated to an
autograph signing session by the celebrities,
followed by an entertaining basketball.
Damon Weaver, the 10-year-old kid re-
porter who has captivated the nation with
his media skills, got the chance to interview
Boldin and Fitzgerald, who are regarded by
some as the NFL's two best wide receivers.
Boldin was beaming with a smile when
the Canal Point Elementary School student
was getting ready to conduct his interview.
It must have been a special Canal Point
moment, as Boldin was also a former stu-
dent at Weaver's current school.
Weaver is inspired by the fact the Boldin
is willing to give back to his home commu-
nity whenever he has a chance.
"I'm very excited to be interviewing some
famous football players, especially Anquan
Boldin, who is from Pahokee," Weaver said
minutes before he began his big interview.
Weaver, who attended the past three an-
nual Q-Fest events, had high hopes for the
celebrity basketball game.
"I want the football players to do dunks
and make the crowd go crazy," he said.
The crowd went into a frenzy after Smith,
who's just 5-9 in height, made an acrobatic
dunk in the game.
Benji Brown, one of the nation's top co-


medians, noted that Smith has an excellent
vertical leap.
An entertaining sequence followed that,
when Brown joked about Smith's past repu-
tation for being hot-headed.
Smith came toward Brown, looking like
he was going to engage in a confrontation.
However, an officer stepped in Smith's
way, preventing the potential fracas.
Smith, who had to leave the game early,
was thoroughly impressed by the Q-Fest.
"It's outstanding what Q [Anquan Bol-
din] is doing here," Smith said just before
exiting the gym.
Boldin's teammate, Dominique Rodgers-
Cromartie, echoed Smith's sentiment of the
Q-Fest.
Rodgers-Cromartie, who attended his
first Q-Fest, said he wants to come back next
year.
"I'm so glad to be out here supporting
Anquan, I couldn't be anywhere else," Rod-
gers-Cromartie said.
Muck area celebrities who appeared in
the game were fellow Pahokee natives Eric
Moore (St. Louis Rams) and Boldin young-
er brother, D.J., Glades Central alum Brad
Banks and Clewiston High School graduate
Eric Green, who was recently traded to the
Miami Dolphins.


Josh McCown and Antrell Rolle were
among the other NFL players to support Bol-
din at the charity event.
The next day was just as good as Friday
night's basketball game, with Boldin hosting
a Fun-Day-In-The-Park function at the Paho-
kee Recreational Center Complex.
Most of the celebrities were unable to
return on Saturday, but more than enough
spent time with the general public, includ-
ing the Boldin brothers, Kenny Moore (Car-
olina), Banks, Eric Moore (St. Louis) and
Brown.
Moore, the Carolina Panthers wideout
.who's a Charlotte, N.C. native, hopes to one
day have a charity event similar to what Bol-
din has.
The second year NFL player, who played
college football at Wake Forest with D.J. Bol-
din, Alphonso Smith and Antonio Wilson Jr.,
was moved by everything he saw this past
weekend.
"The whole Q-Fest is nothing but love,"
Moore said.
"I see how everyone gravitates to Q.
It just shows how much love people have
for him," he continued. "To actually come
down to the Muck and be part of it is just
great."
Dennis Hall, a Pahokee Blue Devils wide-.
out, soaked in the weekend, making a bold
statement after the event.
As Hall took the time on this past Satur-
day to enjoy the food and live entertainment,
he noted how Boldin spent quality time with
each and every person who came to the Q-
Fest; signing autographs and taking a slew of
group photos.
"He's a humble dude and nothing both-
ers him," he continued.
"When he steps on the field, he's not rep-
resenting himself, he represents Pahokee."
At the conclusion of the Q-Fest activities,
which culminated in an organized basket-
ball tournament at the recreational center's
gym, Boldin smiled, with a humble response
to Hall's proclamation of him.
"I'm just another citizen of Pahokee,"
Boldin said. "That's my home, the kids just
need an opportunity."
It's all one needs to know how Boldin's
all for the youth.

Precautionary Measures to Help



Prevent Tick-Borne Illnesses


As Floridians spend more time outside
this spring and summer, remember to pro-
.tect yourself, your family and pets against
tick-borne diseases. Most tick exposures oc-
cur when people and animals venture out-
doors into tick habitats, including wooded,
grassy and brushy areas.
If you find a tick on you, remove it imme-
diately with a pair of fine-tipped tweezers by
following these steps:
Grasp the tick as close to the surface of
the skin as possible
Pull upward with a steady, even motion
without squeezing or crushing the tick
After removing the tick, clean the bite
site and wash hands well with soap and hot
water
If you become ill after being bitten by a
tick, call your health care provider
Tips to help prevent tick-borne dis-
ease:
Avoiding tick bites is the best way to
avoid illness.
-Apply repellent to help prevent ticks
from biting. Repellents registered by the En-
vironmental Protection Agency (EPA) which
contain up to 30 percent DEET (N,N-diethyl-
meta-toluamide), picaridin or IR3535 can
give you several hours of protection. Read


label directions carefully when applying re-
pellent.
-Some repellents are not suitable for chil-
dren. DEET is not recommended on children
younger than two months old.
-Repellents with permethrin can be used
on clothing, shoes, tents and gear if addi-
tional protection is required;
Dress so that skin is covered in white
or light-colored clothing when ticks might
be present to spot ticks crawling on your
clothes. Tuck pant legs into socks so that
ticks cannot crawl up the inside of your
pants.
Walk in the center of the trail or path to
avoid touching tall grasses and other plants
in tick-infested areas.
Check your body and your child's body
for ticks after spending time in a place where
ticks are likely to be found. Carefully inspect
your feet and legs, as some ticks are small
enough to crawl into shoes and through
socks. Because it takes a number of hours
for a tick to transmit disease, a careful tick
check and early removal can prevent ill-
ness.
Check your pets for ticks. Talk to your vet-.
erinarian about products that keep ticks off
your pets. Follow package directions.


Prevent tick infestations around your
home by landscaping your yard to be a tick-
free zone. To see how you can control ticks
around the home, visit www.cdc.gov/Fea-
tures/StopTicks/.
Tick-borne diseases present in Florida
include Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spot-
ted fever, and Ehrlichiosis. Symptoms can
be severe, but people treated with antibiot-
ics soon after becoming ill usually get better
quickly.
Treatment is not recommended unless a
person starts to show signs of illness. If you
have a fever and flu-like symptoms, tell your
doctor about any recent tick bites or expo-
sure to ticks or tick habitats.
A rash is- another common symptom
of some tick-borne diseases. Because tick
activity is increased throughout the United
States during the spring and summer, also
take precautions when you travel.
People of all ages can get sick, but Afri-
can-American men and the elderly may be
at greater risk for severe disease.


Drought impacts on sugar and citrus


Weather impacts produce
smaller crop this season
and threaten significant
impacts on next crop

Clewiston, FL - April 15, 2009 - Farmers
are concerned about the potential for pro-
longed and crop-damaging drought condi-
tions due to lack of rainfall and continued
releases from Lake Okeechobee.
"This is the driest year on record so far,"
said Judy Sanchez, director of corporate
communications. "We've had nearly zero
rainfall during the month of April and less
than one inch for the year. Even last night's
storm averaged less than a quarter inch
across our farms.


"Sugarcane and citrus, like most South
Florida crops, rely on rainfall to effectively
produce a crop. Irrigation helps, but the
quantity of water available with irrigation
programs will only keep the cane or trees
alive -- it will not effectively support growth
of a crop," Sanchez said.
Farmers endured economic damage dur-
ing historically low Lake Okeechobee levels
during the previous drought that only ended
when Tropical Storm Fay, by pure chance,
dropped sufficient rainfall north of the lake
to raise water levels.
As for the impact on agriculture, Sanchez
said that like the rest of the Florida industry,
U.S. Sugar's cane crop was almost 700,000
tons smaller than expected due in large part
to drought and lack of'irrigation water.
The company's citrus crop is similarly

tracking below estimate by the same per-
centage for the same reasons.
Current dry conditions threaten next
year's sugar cane crop as adequate rainfall
is critical to sugarcane as the crop enters the
grand growth period.
When rainfall is limiting, growth and ulti-
mately tonnage is significantly reduced.
For citrus, the lack of water at this criti-
cal time is already impacting the fruit set for
citrus trees that need rainfall to provide sup-
port to the tree to set the crop.
Citrus trees drop blossoms to counter
balance the moisture stress.

Timing is everything
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
In the 12 plus years I have been raising
butterflies for release on Easter Sunday, I
have learned much and have gotten the tim-
ing down. Timing is everything to get a suc-
cessful coming out experience. You receive
the tiny caterpillars and put them in a feed-
ing cup. They eat for about 7-10 days, are in
the chrysalis for 7-10 days, and then emerge
as butterflies.
Just like many of our struggles are what
we need in our lives in order to be strong
enough to fly, the struggling the butterflies
go through to emerge from their cocoon
is part of God's design to strengthen their
wings to enable them to fly. They continue
to pump their wings after emerging to gain
the additional strength they need. So, I plan
accordingly so the butterflies will emerge
from their cocoons the week before Easter
and have time to pump their wings and fly
when we release them on Easter Sunday
morning as a symbolic remembrance of
Christ emerging from the tomb.
This year was no different. I had plans for
over 100 butterflies to emerge the week be-
fore Easter. None did. According to my time
table I should have had butterflies, but as of
the Saturday before Easter, not one butterfly
had emerged. By sunrise on Easter morn-
ing, I was thrilled to find one butterfly out.
At least I had one, but it didn't look like a
mass butterfly release was going to happen
this year.
But God had other plans and what hap-
pened made this year unique and special.
During each worship service, enough but-
terflies came out that we were able to have
a release afterwards. Newly out of their
cocoons, the butterflies stayed on people's
fingers while they pumped their wings to
get ready to fly. The joy on the faces of the
children was contagious. A number of peo-
ple were able to take a chrysalis home and
celebrate "resurrection" again as their but-
terflies emerged in the days following Easter.
We were blessed with a great experience!
Let's see: John's timing: 1. God's timing: a
hundredfold with addition blessings. There's
got to be a lesson in there somewhere!

Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The story of the Easter Resurrection is our
greatest holiday. Mother's Day is not far off.
Both are about sacred bonds: one between
the Lord and His people, the other between
parents and children. Both involve trust, con-
fidence and "knowing" that the other will be
there. We know of "having faith" in another;
a parent who believes in her children, a Lord
who believes enough in His people to offer
Himself for them. The faithful- know (yes,
"Know") the Lord loves them.
Our scientific age likes "proof" when we
can get it: a sense of control, order,, predict-
ability. "Faith" may not seem all that certain;
we might get it wrong or we may feel be-
trayed. After the Resurrection, some of the
disciples met and found the Lord among
them. They were glad to see Him and wel-
comed Jesus (John 29:20). Thomas was
not there and he wondered about what oth-
ers were saying: "We have seen the Lord.
(v.25)." Their testimony is not enough. He
sets his conditions for "belief"; he will have
to touch Jesus' hands and put his hand in the
wounded side or he isn't going to believe.
Others' words aren't sufficient; it has to
be much more. Eight days later, Thomas
gets his chance. He is invited to "prove" for
himself that the Lord is alive and proclaimed
"My Lord and my God (v.28)." Jesus asks
"Have you believed because you have seen
me? Blessed are who have not seen and yet
believe (v. 28)."
For some, it was seeing; for Thomas, it
was seeing and touching; for others it was
the testimony of those who had seen; for
others it was the testimony of those they
trusted. Jesus, in John's Gospel, tells of
those who believed because they saw, those
who needed more "proof", and those who
are blessed because they know Him through
the faith of others.
It was easy for me to believe in what my
grandmother told me about the Lord; there
was no question of her love for her children
and grandchildren... It was easy too believe
when respected people told how their faith
worked in their lives. As I look back, what
we believe is related to our relationship with
those we love and who love us. Peter and
the other disciples law; they believed. Their
word was not enough for Thomas, but the
Lord provided him with what he needed.
When I look at the belief of many, it is the
love of parents for children and what par-
ents pass on in the contest of their love that
is all the "proof" needed. It has carried us for

Just a Grain of Sand!
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
In time of flood it is often sandbags which
hold back the water that would otherwise
hurtle down upon a town. In times of war,
sandbag walls have been erected to keep
back the enemy. In a much less dramatic in-
stance, sandbags in the trunk of a car keep
the light vehicle from overturning on ice in
the winter.
A grain of sand would seem to be so
minute that its weight could have little or no
effect upon the universe. Sand, however, is
one of the weightiest of substances, and a
grain multiplied many thousands of times
can become a powerful force.
One grain of sand cannot hold back a
flood, nor steady a car, but great masses of
sand grains can accomplish unbelievable
feats.
One Christian may not seem like much..
One vote, one word, or one prayer doesn't
seem to make much difference. But Chris-
tians united together can and have had a
mighty impact upon the world.
A grain of sand in a hourglass represent
but an infinitesimal moment of recorded
time. Yet a million grains of this same sand
might mean the time for a child to be born,
for an old man to die, for a treaty to be
signed, for a prayer to be uttered.
Each of us lives by an hourglass that can-
not be seen. Through each glass the sand
flows constantly. No man knows how many
grains remain in his hourglass.
One thing is certain, however. The pres-
ent moment is not to be relived. There is but
one time for a choice between college and
work, between marriage and a career, even
between doubts and conviction.
That time is now!
What are you doing with your moment?
Will you kill or will you plant? Will you be
a friend or a betrayer? Will your serve the
Lord or will you be untrue to Him. Will you
work to answer the prayer of Christ for the
unity of all His followers or to will you con-
tinue to cause division by what you support
religiously?
Remember, no one can halt the flow of
these grains of sand. "Redeem the time, for
the days of evil!"

The Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter Auxiliary can be easily recognized by
their pink service jackets and their smiling
faces. In addition to their tireless hours of
personal contributions, they also donate
thousands of dollars to help purchase vital
equipment that is essential to providing ex-
cellent patient care.
Every year, the Auxiliary asks hospital
directors to create 'wish-lists' of equipment
needs for their respective departments.
From those requested items (wish-lists), the
HRMC Auxiliary makes a recommendation
to approve and purchase specific equip-
ment. This year, this wonderful group of
volunteers voted to purchase almost $5,500
worth of hospital equipment including a
Telemetry Transmitter, two Portable Pulse
Oximeters and a Patient Transfer Rack and
Device with Aprons and Shields. They are
also in the process of buying new chairs
for the hospital cafeteria. More importantly,
these women and men give the most valu-
able gifts of all; they give their time; they
give their talents; they give of themselves,


and they give something back to the com-
munity. They are more than volunteers
- they are special people, and Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center will be recognizing
them during National Volunteer Week for
their countless hours of dedication by host-
ing a tea in their honor on Friday, April 24
at 2 p.m. in the hospital cafeteria.
If you're interested in joining this caring
team of residents, there are many areas in
which volunteer help is needed. As a vol-
unteer you'll enjoy many rewards. You will
feel a sense of accomplishment, learn new
skills, meet new people, make new friends
and make an invaluable contribution to
your community. What's more, the hours
are very flexible. Whether you are in the
community during the winter months, or
you make Hendry County your year-round
home, we welcome your membership on
this caring team.
Please stop by the hospital gift shop
for an application or call Sheila Whitt, the
HRMC Auxiliary President, at 863-509-0118

"Don't Be Caught Dead


Without Your Seatbelt"


By Pat Dobbins R.N., M.S./H.SA.
Every hour, someone dies in the U.S.
simply because they did not put on their
seatbelt! You may remember to buckle up
as soon as you get into the driver seat, but
do you always remember to put your seat-
belt on when you're a passenger in some-
one else's vehicle? Over 7,500 teens died in
car crashes last year in the United Sates and
over 60 percent of fhem were not wearing
their seatbelts! Teens should remind teens
to buckle up. They may think that it makes
them not look cool. It's not cool to be stone
dead! Not buckling, up causes more deaths
than any other single traffic.safety-related
behavior. People riding in the back seat are
three times as likely to die or have serious
injuries if they are not wearing a seatbelt.
According to the National Traffic Safety
Administration, the overall seatbelt use in
2008 averaged around 83 percent. Specifi-
cally for Hendry and Glades Counties, over


240 seatbelt violations were issued during
2008! If you are the driver, keep in mind that
if you have passengers in your vehicle, you
(the driver) are responsible for those pas-
sengers. If you get pulled over and your pas-
sengers are not buckled up, YOU could be
issued a ticket for every person not wearing
their seatbelt and YOU could be required to
pay all of the fines!
Top 10 Reasons to Wear Your Seatbelt:
You don't have a license to fly; Faces & wind-
shields don't mix; You don't like the taste of
glass do you; Road-rash isn't very attractive;
Airbags aren't as effective without the use
of your seatbelt; Wrinkled clothes are better
than blood stains; Wherever you're headed,
there's someone who will be happy to see
you... get there alive; Your car might get to-
taled, but you won't; It's the law...you will
have to pay a fine for not wearing one!
* It may just save your life!

The Lost Tribes of Florida


Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The sun's scorching rays brushed the
water's surface in shimmering, silver strokes
that turned the wetlands into a steaming,
green furnace. Mayaisis Indians, laboring
feverishly in the oppressive heat, hurriedly
poled the dugouts, in an effort to escape a
relentless enemy.
Their heavily laden dugouts surged
through the Everglade's grassy, shallow wa-
ters, cutting a narrow, green swath that left a
trail of discovery for keen eyes.
The women and children sat motionless
for long hours in the wet dugouts, with tense,
drawn faces that became wild-eyed with
fear each time a retreating gator splashed
or a disturbed heron squawked. They knew
their pursuers were close, and each intrusive
sound could betray their location or, worst,
be the enemy.
In the late afternoon, a lone hammock
with tall, cabbage palms appeared on the
hazy horizon. The palms cast cool, enticing
shadows across the hammock that beck-
oned to the sun, drenched travelers. The
weary Mayaisis Indians warily approached
the landfall, scanning the shoreline before
drifting quietly to .its shores and beaching
the dugouts. A pervasive silence followed,
and for brief moments, nervous smiles re-
placed sober faces.
The peaceful silence was only an interlude.
to the encroaching danger. Their precarious
position was made real by the sudden sound
of fluttering wings and the relentless enemy
that rose from hidden positions.
Strangely dressed Indians emerged from
behind the hammock, banishing flintlock
muskets. Loud, angry war cries echoed
across the Glades, as howling warriors raced
through the shallow waters to capture the
terrified Mayaisis that had eluded them for
so long.
This fictitious yarn reveals the broken
lives of a once proud and powerful Indian
Nation, the Mayaisis. They became a de-
fenseless remnant that was preyed upon
by Indian Slavers, who hounded them deep
into the Everglades. It is time to take "A Walk
in the Past" and read about the "Lost Tribes
of Florida."
Anthropologists and Historians differ on
the population estimates of Pre-Columbian
Indians that lived in La Florida. Some of the
population numbers are very conservative,
while. others range to 350,000 and higher.
We will never know the exact figures, but
archeological findings and Spanish docu-
ments reveal that large, Indian populations
once thrived in La Florida.
Northern Florida was struck by European
epidemics in the 1500s and 1600s. The pow-
erful Timucua Indian Nation was decimat-
ed, and the Apalachee Indian Nation was
reduced from estimates of 50,000 people to
8,500 by 1700. The surviving Apalachee In-
dians were integrated into Spain's coloniza-
tion policy- the missions.
The European epidemics were slower
getting to South Florida because the Indi-
ans living there had less interaction with the
Spanish. Historians think the epidemics that
struck the South Florida Indians came after
1700. All the Spanish documents that I have


researched indicate healthy Indian popula-
tions in South Florida up to 1700, so what
happened?
In 1670, the Treaty of Madrid was signed
between England and Spain. The treaty gave
each country the rights to lands in America
that it controlled at the time. Georgia, at
that time, was part of La Florida. England
ignored the treaty provisions and attacked
missions in Georgia in 1680 and 1684. The
Spanish retaliated and attacked the English
in South Carolina.
These raids signaled the start of an "un-
declared war" between Spain and its mis-
sion populations and the English Carolinians
and their American Indian allies. The English
had the upper hand because they supplied
their Indian allies with firearms.
The trade and exportation of deerskins
was a very big business in South Carolina.
The English traded the Indian allies with
guns, powder, shot, and other items for
deer skins. The Indians allied to the English
gained a big technological advantage over
the Spanish Indian allies, who still used the
bow and arrow.
The English Indian allies came from many
Indian Nations. The stronger nations were
the Yamasee and the Lower Creek. These
Indian allies quickly learned that Indian cap-
tives taken in the La Florida raids brought
good prices as slaves back in Charleston,
South Carolina.
The slave trade became very lucrative
for the Indian Slavers and the English, who
bought the captive Indians from them. The
English auctioned the captured Indians off
at the Charleston Slave Blocks, where many
were sold in the West Indies. Slavery was the
final blow to the Florida Indians.
England and Spain became "official en-
emies" when the "War of Spanish Succes-
sion" started in 1701. The war engulfed Eu-
rope and spread to North America, where
it became known as "Queen Anne's War."
England saw the Spanish Missions as Spain's
foothold in Florida and wanted them de-
stroyed.
From 1702 to 1707, the English and their
Indian allies completely destroyed the Span-
ish Missions in North Florida. The Indians
living on the missions were either killed or
enslaved. The Spanish governor of Florida
at the time said, "Ten to twelve thousand
Indians in North Florida had been taken as
slaves by the Carolinians and their Indian al-
lies."
The removal of the Spanish Missions in
northern Florida left the state open for more
attacks. Indian raiders, hungry for English
trade goods, were soon slaving the full
length of Florida. No one was safe, not even
the Indians living in Key West.
There will be more Tale Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in the Past," when
the English and Indian allies complete the
destruction of the Florida Indian Nations.

There's a wonderful world around us. Full of
fascinating places. Interesting people. Amazing
cultures. Important challenges. But sadly, our
kids are not getting the chance to learn about
their world. When surveys show that half of
America's youth cannot locate India or Iraq on
a map, then we have to wonder what they do
know about their world. That's why we created
MyWonderfulWorld.org. It's part of a free National
Geographic-led campaign to give your kids the
power of global knowledge. Go there today and
help them succeed tomorrow. Start with our free
parent and teacher action kits. And let your kids
begin the adventure of a lifetime.

Brandon area, which is on the outskirts of
Tampa.
The reverend, who was constantly seen
around the Glades Central Raiders football
team for years, was later extradited to Palm
Beach County after being reportedly booked
in a Hillsborough County jail.
Harris, who was arrested on a search
warrant, was denied bail by a Palm Beach
County judge after appearing in a highly
publicized first appearance hearing on Sat-
urday, Apr. 18.
A week after Harris was arrested by au-
thorities for allegedly threatening to attack
Belle Glade resident Tamara Martin with a
bat (Mar. 10), an investigation of his alleged
child abuse began (Mar. 17).
On Mar. 17, the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office (PBSO) reportedly responded to
a burglary at Harris's residence (1073 1st St.
in Belle Glade).
It should be noted, according to an PBSO
affidavit, that Harris reported a portable sil-
ver DVD player, a black DVD player, an air
card and a cell phone charger stolen from
his home.
There was reportedly no mention of any
actual DVDs or any other type of tapes/disks
stolen from Harris, according to the affida-
vit.
The next day, a woman told investigators
that a total of five videos were possibly sto-
len from Harris's residence.
Three of the videos in question, accord-
ing to the unidentified woman, featured
sexual contact on them and the other two
were just clips of football games, the arrest
report said.
Detectives later viewed the tapes to verify
the alleged sexual activity, which was posi-
tively confirmed, according to the probable
cause statement.
Authorities said that Harris was not
viewed in the video, but discovered the al-
leged sexual acts actually taking place in the
defendant's residence, with his voice being
heard in the video in question.
It was revealed that the defendant video-
taped a 16-year-old boy lifting weights and


on one occasion, Harris allegedly filmed
a girl and a boy having sexual intercourse
without their permission.
The incident, investigators said, took
place in May 2008 when the two unidenti-
fied teenagers were 15 and 13 years old, re-
spectively.
In yet another incident, investigators
learned that a portion of one video showed
juveniles being filmed by Harris as they were
lifting weights with no shirt on and a voice
that was recognized to be Harris saying
these words:
"You fixing to net?" Harris reportedly
asked a juvenile in one of the videos.
Authorities said all of the victims either
play or have played football for Glades Cen-
tral.
Additionally, detectives discovered that
a Glades Central football player was report-
edly approached by Harris in a locker room
after football practice at a community pool.
The unidentified Glades Central player
told detectives that Harris was handing out
paperwork in juveniles to get their informa-
tion for a football camp, such as their dates
of birth.
The affidavit said that last year, Harris told
a teenager that he could help him with his
football career.
Once the unidentified teenager was at
Harris's house, the juvenile was reportedly
told to lift weights and do sit ups, which he
did with no shirt on.
Harris reportedly told the boy h'e would
show the video to football recruiters.
The teenager told detectives that he didn't
go back to Harris's home because he heard
rumors about the defendant being 'gay'.
There were many other criminals acts
made toward the four reported victims in
the case, which gave authorities more than
enough probable cause to charge the de-
fendant with the aforementioned crimes,
including the showing of obscene material
to a minor.
If convicted of all these charges, the de-
fendant could face life in prison, according
to the Fla. State Statutes.

PBSO selects new Belle Glade commander


Captain Andrew Dilardello:
'We will eventually turn the
area around'

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - Andrew Bilardello has
been named the new District 13 captain/
commander of the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office (PBSO). He is directly re-
sponsible for the Belle Glade area.
The captain, who has been at the helm
for exactly one month now - he assumed his
role on Mar. 23 - plans to do everything in
his power to push forward a set of initiatives
that were laid out by his predecessor, Cap-
tain Simon Barnes IV.
The city's citizens should be familiar with
Bilardello, who played a pivotal role in the
2006 merger between the now-defunct Belle
Glade Police and the PBSO.
The merger, which was official on July
S 19, 2006, according to Bilardello, resulted in
Barnes becoming the city's captain.
Barnes, who's now the PBSO road patrol
commander, essentially switched roles with
Bilardello, who served in that position for
the past two years.
"I think Captain Barnes did a wonderful
job out here," Bilardello said. "It was rough
taking over from [Former Belle Glade Po-
lice Chief] Albert Dowdell, especially when
many of the citizens didn't want the sheriff's
office to come here.
"I think the citizens felt that they would


lose the personal
touch the Belle Glade
Sr-Police gave them,"
he continued.
With a growing
number of residents
making complaints
about how the sher-
iff's office handles a
variety of issues in
Captain Andrew this city, Bilardello
Dilardello. realizes what must
be done to quell
those concerns.
The District 13 captain, who describes his
personality and leadership style as being a
team player, approachable and easy-going,
is adamant about making an attempt to find
a way to connect with the city's citizens.
"I just want to get a little bit more known
with the elected officials and local leaders,"
Bilardello said.
"It's all about networking and finding out
what they want the sheriff's office to do to
make the Glades area safer for everyone."
Making an appearance at last Saturday's
Black Gold Jubilee seems to be a step in the
right direction for Bilardello.
The sheriff's office oversaw security for
this past Saturday's Black Gold Jubilee,
which was held at Torry Island.
"We had some vehicles broken into last
year at the Black Gold Jubilee," the New
York native said.
"We made sure that we had extra secu-
rity in place to ensure the safety of peoples'
property this year."


As of press time, there were no reported
criminal activities that occurred at last week-
end's celebration.
With the Jubilee turning out to be a suc-
cess, Bilardello, 52, is now turning to the
city's series of marches against violence.
That initiative, Bilardello said, was orga-
nized by a group of local ministers.
The marches, which take place on Friday
evenings, began on April 10 and will report-
edly conclude on May 1.
Tomorrow evening (Apr. 24), the third of
four weekly marches will take place at ap-
proximately 6 p.m., with the starting point
to be near the St. John Missionary Baptist
Church (Southwest Eighth Street).
"The Glades is a wonderful area, people
are tired of the violence that's taking place
here and we need to do something about it,"
Bilardello said.
"You have people out here that love us
(law enforcement) and you have people
that don't care for us," he continued. Most
of Belle Glade's citizens are hard-working,
law-abiding people who want their children
to be safe."
Speaking of the youth, Bilardello is none
too pleased with the fact there's not much
for kids to do in the Glades.
Other than playing football, which is far
and away the best opportunity for the young
boys to make a better future for themselves,
Bilardello would like to see the youth be-
come interested in more diverse activities so
they could stay out of trouble.
The PBSO boxing program, which has
produced a multiple state championship-


winning boxer in Verbain Curry, is starting
to gain more popularity in the area.
And beginning on Saturday, May 9, the
sheriff's office will begin promoting the
game of golf.
But Bilardello seems to be very excited
about the development of Airport Park,
which promises to become a highly popular
recreational spot in the future.
There are currently a few local baseball
teams playing out there, but will the park
help spur a PBSO youth baseball league in
the area?
Bilardello wouldn't say, but he said that
he definitely wants to get involved with the
baseball program at Airport Park.
In the end, Bilardello feels that if these
positive developments move forward, then
the city could reach its growth potential in
the not-too-distant future.
"These kids out here have nothing," he
said. "We have a crime problem out here
and that could be why we can't get busi-
nesses to come out here and invest," Bi-
lardello continued.
"But if they did, it would spur the econo-
my and lower the crime."
Bilardello, who recently learned from city
officials that unemployment is hovering at
around 25 percent, is confident that things
can only get better from here.
"All the people in the Glades want is an
honest living," Bilardello said.
"We'll eventually turn the area around,"
he continued. "It's a community issue and
we'll make change, one issue at a time."

Raiders win District 13-2A track championship


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - "We gotta keep the tra-
dition going," said Glades Central's John
Early.
As expected, both the Glades Central
Raiders boys and girls track teams won the
District 13-2A championships on Apr. 16 at
Effie C. Grear Field.
The only boys team to come within strik-
ing distance of Glades Central (200 points)
was Suncoast, who finished with 175 points
- 25 points behind the winner.
Many of the Glades Central boys did
what they had to do in order to qualify for
Saturday's Region 4-2A meet, which will be
held at Belen Jesuit High School in Miami.
Glades Central junior Demetrius Evans
took home a gold medal in the high jump,
finishing a 6-0.
It's interesting to note that a total of five
high jumpers peaked at 6-0, but it was ruled
by officials that Evans scratched the fewest
jumps of the day.
A scratch means that the jumper did not
clear the bar.
The other high jumpers who finished
seco(:d through fifth, respectively, were
Kelsey Donaho (Jensen Beach), Dominic
Petiigrewv (Suncoast), Kelvin Benjamin
(Glades Central) and James West (Glades


Central).
Glades Central's boys picked up 19 of
their 200 overall points in that event alone,
which made Evans proud of what his team
accomplished.
"We dominated in field points, so it
helped carry over into our running events,"
Evans said of the boys team. "Now, going
into regionals, I think I have a chance at
winning the high jump."
In each event, only the top four places
advance to the Apr. 25 regional meet, which
means West did not qualify in the high
jump, since he finished fifth.
Glades Central's Jim Knowles and Ru-
pert Bryan were perhaps the Raiders' big-
gest stars of the meet, as they posted wins
in the shot put (46-4 1/2) and the discus
(136-10), respectively.
In fact, the Glades Central boys took the
top three spots in the shot put, garnering 24
points in that event alone,
Evans' claim of Glades Central's field
domination is actually dead-on accurate, as
the boys scored a total of 88 points, when
combining the shot put, discus, high jump,
long jump and triple jump events.
That's more than what seven of the eight
other teams scored at the meet (Jensen
Beach, Pahokee, Pope John Paul II, Inlet
Grove, St. Andrews, Dreyfoos and Cardinal
Newman) scored overall, with the excep-


tion of Suncoast.
If the Glades Central boys had a field day
in the district championships, it was Sun-
coast senior Tony McQuay who truly domi-
nated on the track.
For the second consecutive meet, Mc-
Quay took home gold medals in the 100
meter final (10.92), the 200 final (21.89)
and the 400 (48.02).
Amazingly, in the 400, McQuay was
close to four seconds ahead of Pahokee's
De'Joshua Johnson (51.99), who finished
as the runner-up.
Johnson anchored Pahokee's win over
Glades Central in the 4 x 100 relay (42.10 -
Pahokee, 42.54 - Glades Central).
Coming back to race in the 200 final,
he finished fourth (23.58), behind Mc-
Quay, Glades Central's Rantavious Wooten
(22.79) and Suncoast freshman Antwan
Wright (22.79).
"I was so tired the whole meet, I don't
know what was wrong with me," said John-
son, who qualified for the regional meet in
three events (the 200, 400 and 4 x 100 re-
lay). "I'll just make it up at regionals."
McQuay, who is the clear-cut favorite to
win the regionals in all three of his individu-
al events, had high praise for Johnson, who
he sees as his closest competitor.
"De'Joshua is a great athlete and he has
it in his mind that he's gonna compete and


give it his all, even if it's against tough com-
petition," he continued. "He's seen mostly
as a sprinter, but people need to know how
good he is in the 400."
Over on the girls end, it was all Glades
Central, as their team, who finished with 169
points, blasted the entire field, with Jensen
Beach as the runner-up (102.5 points).
Glades Central senior Vanessa Anthony,
who's looking to repeat as the Class 2A state
champion in the 300 meter hurdles, easily
won the event at the district meet (46.18).
Anthony also took home the gold medal
in the 100 meter hurdles (15.64), which she
has won two consecutive years at the dis-
trict meet.
Fellow teammate Martha Jaimes was
nearly as impressive, finishing second in the
300 meter hurdles (46.96) and fourth in the
100 hurdles (16.59).
"I feel like I did good here, but my times
have to improve because there's gonna be
more competition at state," said Anthony,
who won district gold in the 300 meter hur-
dles four years in a row.
"It's good that we won district, but I
think our team could do better "--
