Belle Glade: Marching for a new day


Iun .najm. m .ma
A host of residents made a bold statement in their march against violence on May 1 in Belle
Glade.


A rally and march against violence


Patrick: 'We need to
cut this foolishness
out'

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The combat
on violence is in full display, with
locals hoping that change comes
as a result of it.
During the final march in the
city last Friday evening (May 1),
scores of residents lined up for
the event to make a statement.
"No more violence, more
peace," the participants pro-
claimed as they walked down Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
"Violence, gangs and guns...
destroying and killing our daugh-
ters and sons.
"Stop the violence, start the
peace," they continued in the 20-
minute long march that began at
Lake Shore Park.
"Stop the shooting, get rid of


the guns."
As the march took a turn to-
ward Southwest 8th Street and
then onto Southwest Avenue F,
residents remembered the efforts
of the past month.
The marches, which were as-
sembled by a collaborative of the
Glades Ministerial Association,
the Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office (PBSO) and the City of
Belle Glade, first began in Belle
Glade on Apr. 10.
Throughout the past four
weeks, dozens throughout the
city showed their support for this
initiative.
"This march is for us to stop
all the killings going on," said
Mary Harrell, a longtime Belle
Glade residents who rode on a
bus during the march.
"Hopefully, we as parents will
start taking note of what our kids
are doing."
There have been quite a few
shootings that have occurred in
this city over the past year, with


the most recent one reportedly
taking place on May 1 at about
2:15 a.m.
Ironically, the shooting of an
unidentified 49-year-old man
took place at 509 S. W. 5th St.,
which is near the loading ramp -
the site of where last Friday's rally
was held.
The march ended at the load-
ing ramp, which is a popular
spot in Belle Glade located on
the corners of Southwest Avenue
C Place, Southwest Avenue D,
Southwest Fifth and Southwest
Sixth Streets.
According to the PBSO, the
victim, who reportedly was shot
several times by an unknown
suspect, was airlifted via Trauma
Hawk to Delray Medical Center in
Delray Beach.
Investigators were told that
people in the area heard shots
but did not have information
about the shooter or shooters,

Debutantes-Escorts honored at 44th Annual Cotillion


Saturday, April 11 was the memorable
date for 25 students from area high schools.
The Elite Community Club honored the 2009
debutantes and escorts with the 44th annual
cotillion in the old Lake Shore gymnasium,
located on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard
in Belle Glade.
The idea of honoring worthy students
in the Glades area was born in 1966 when
the late Mrs. Louise E. Taylor and a group
of Glades area women organized the Elite
Community Club. The club organized in or-
der to fill a cultural void which existed in the
Glades.
Several civic and cultural projects were
identified as the club defined their mission.
One such activity was to honor and recog-
nize some of the young people in the Glades
area who were worthy of being recognized
for academic, as well as other commendable
attributes prior to high school graduation.


seven young ladies. Several years -after rec-
ognizing only young ladies, the club began
the tradition of also honoring worthy young
men, who were given the title of "escorts."
In 1982, the club added a third group of
students to the project, giving recognition
to girls enrolled in grade eleven. Their titles
became that of "Sub-Debutantes." This gave
the club a year to work with them in prepa-
ration for their senior year.
Other activities of the club include:
"Help-A-Neighbor" (adopting one family to
work with throughout the year) providing
baskets to the needy for Holidays and activ-
ity projects for senior citizens at the nursing
homes.
The 2009 group of honorees is filled with
academically, as well as athletically talented
young people. The majority of them have
already been accepted to enroll in colleges
throughout Florida and other states.


arship to attend Marshall University, Hunting-
ton, West Virginia. Several plan to attend the
University of Florida and others have been
accepted to attend either Florida State Uni-
versity or University of South Florida.
With the addition of the escorts and Sub-
Debutantes, the Elite Club has voluntarily
worked with more than 1,500 students since
the initial presentation in 1967.
Members of the Elite Community Club
include: Janice Bain, Joan Bass (2009 escort

The Spanish Indians and Fish Rancheros


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Brown palm fronds resting on the weath-
ered shelters, stirred to the gentle ocean
breezes that sprang across the village com-
pound in refreshing waves of cool air.
. Men and women paused momentarily
from their labors, as the cool breezes ca-
ressed their bodies and brought temporary
relief from the sweltering heat.
Fishermen stood at the rough, hand-hewn
tables, working under the sun's scorching
gaze to clean the freshly caught Mullet that
flopped about resiliently in the tropical heat.
Knife blades flashed in the sunlight, as expe-
rienced, calloused hands, moved in rhythm,
heading and gutting, the glistening piles of
fish.
Tiny plumes of white water erupted into
the air, as the disemboweled Mullet were
hurriedly tossed into large, wooden barrels
of seawater. Women laughed and gossiped
amid the splashes, while they washed and
removed the offal from each mullet's split,
bellied cavity.
The children were summoned after the
washed fish had been placed on thick layers
of freshly cut palm fronds.
Soon scurrying children were darting
back and forth across the hot, beach sands,
carrying the slippery fish to the brine vats.
The fish would, lay submerged- in the vats
during the night, while the salt, enriched wa-
ters permeated their pearly, succulent flesh.
The next day, the fish were removed from
the brine and covered in crusty, white gran-
ules of salt.
The salt-encased fish were then stacked
on the crudely fashioned racks that criss-
crossed the village compound. Days later,
the dried, preserved fish slabs, likened to
wooden boards, were placed in hemp stacks
and stored for shipment to Cuba.
Commercial fishing became the first
great industry in South Florida. Its legacy
was born back in the day, when Florida's
pristine waters were blackened by miles of
migrating fish.
It is time to "Take a Walk-in The Past"
and read about the Spanish Indians and Fish
Rancheros in South Florida.
Florida Indian populations were severely
reduced by European diseases and slave
raids during the 1700s.
These deadly encounters created such
mayhem and vulnerability in the South Flor-
ida Indian Nations that they sought refuge
with their old enemy, the Spanish.
An unofficial truce was established be-
tween the South Florida Indians and the
Spanish.
Two hundred years of hostilities, were
forgotten, and the Spanish became not only
allies, but protectorates to the South Florida
Indians.
The Spanish. supplied the Indians-with
firearms, supplies, and safe havens.
A Spanish mission was established in
1743, on the Miami River, to aid the perse-
cuted Indians.
However, the Indians never cared for the
religious aspects of the mission, much to the
priests' annoyance.
They came only for the "Loaves and
Fishes", which were the security the Spanish


soldiers provided at the mission.
Slave raids continued in South Florida.
The situation became so desperate that
Calusas started migrating to Cuba. The first
recorded migration occurred in 1704, and
was followed by other migrations as the
slave raids intensified.. Most of the Calusas
that fled to Cuba died of European diseases.
In 1711, two hundred and seventy Calusa
Indians migrated to Cuba. In a short time,
only seventy remained.
These survivors opted to return to Florida
and face the perils of slavery, rather than re-
main in Cuba. The deadly diseases in Cuba
extracted such heavy death tolls on migrat-
ing Calusas that many became distrustful
and refused free Spanish passage to Cuba.
Some historians believe remnants of oth-
er South Florida Indian Nations migrated to
Cuba to escape the Indian slavers.
European diseases probably sealed their
fate, when they arrived on Cuban soil.
A fishing industry slowly developed dur-
ing these chaotic times along the South Flor-
ida coast. Spanish fishermen, who had once
feared the Indians, now had the opportunity
to set up fish shacks or rancheros along the
east and west coasts of Florida.
Over the years, a strong bond developed
between the Spanish fishermen and Indi-
ans.
It was a bond that would endure into the
1800s and become a problem for the United
States during the second Seminole Indian
War.
Some historians think that the South
Florida Indians living on the Spanish fishing
settlements eventually lost their ethic culture
and became known as "Spanish Indians."
A priest named Father Alana, noted in 1743,
that "For the most part the adult men un-
derstand and speak Castilian Spanish mod-
erately because of the frequent commerce
with the boatmen from Havana."
Spanish documents indicate the Indians
and Spanish were marrying and producing
offspring. Succeeding generations probably
.lost much of their native identity, leaning,
more toward the Spanish culture that domi-
nated the fishing settlements.
The Spanish fisheries brought trade
goods and protection to the South Florida
Indians, but at a cost. The Florida Indians
were now in close contact with fishermen
that traveled to Cuba.
Spanish fishermen traveling back and
forth from Cuba unknowingly carried con-
tractual European diseases, which brought
more demise to the already diminutive
groups of Indians living on the fishing settle-
ments.
Another dark side of this relationship was
rum. The Cuban fishermen carried rum on
board their ships for personal use and traded
it freely with the Indians, who demanded it.
Alcohol wasn't new to the South Florida In-
dians, who had salvaged it from many of the
Spanish ships over the centuries, but now it
was always available.
The Indians couldn't handle the rum's
alcohol, so it wrecked havoc on the drinker
and his family members.
The Indian's passion for Cuban rum was
noted by Father Alana, who attributed some
of the decline in the South Florida Indian
populations to the dissolution and excesses

Swine Flu: An Update


As of May 4 there have been five con-
firmed cases of Swine Flu (HIN1) in Florida.
Two of those cases are in Lee County. There
is no vaccine available right now to pro-
tect against swine flu, but there is antiviral
medication available to treat any confirmed
cases.
A toll free information line has been es-
tablished to address an increasing number
of calls from the public requesting Swine Flu
information. The number is: 1-800-342-3557
and it is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments are working closely with
School Administration, Emergency Manage-
ment, Health Care Providers, and the com-
munity to ensure that the communication
of information and updates are issued in
a timely manner. The current strategy is to
educate the public on how to protect your-
self and what to do if you are sick. For your
protection, please do the following:
Avoid close contact with people who are
coughing or otherwise appear ill.
Wash hands frequently with soap and
water to lessen the spread of any respiratory
illnesses.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and
mouth.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue
when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tis-


sue in the trash after you use it.
If you get sick with influenza, it is recom-
mended that you stay home from work or
school and limit contact with others to keep
from infecting them.
The symptoms of swine flu in people
are very similar to the symptoms of regular
seasonal flu and include: -Fever (over 100
degree Fahrenheit) Cough Sore Throat -
Body Aches Headache Chills Fatigue.
Some people have reported diarrhea and
vomiting associated with swine flu. If you
experience any of the above symptoms,
please call your health care provider first
and discuss whether you need to be seen in
their office, emergency department or stay
home.
People with respiratory illness should stay
home from work or school to avoid spread-
ing infections, including influenza, to others
in the community.
People with influenza virus infection
should be considered potentially contagious
as- long as they are symptomatic and possi-
ble for up to 7 days following illness onset.
Germs can be spread when a person
touches something that is contaminated
with germs and then touches his or her eyes,
nose, or mouth.
If you have any questions, please contact
your healthcare provider.


Paul Miller Path to


Wellness, Grand Prize Winner


By Glenda
Wilson
Although it may
come as no surprise
to competing partic-
ipants in. the eight-
week Path to Well-
ness Program, Paul Paul Miller.
Miller, of Hendry
Regional Medical Center's IT Department,
has won the $500 grand prize for losing
the most percentage of body weight. In the
end, it paid off in more ways than one for
Paul he lost six inches in his hips, four
inches in his waist, fourteen percent of his
total body weight, and 39 whole pounds!!
Paul turned drudgery into daily excite-
ment, as he began dropping pounds and
inches. If one was looking for a magic
diet pill, it wouldn't be found at Hendry
Regional; rather, courage, discipline and
self-control were the magical ingredients
that helped Paul Miller and many other em-
ployees to persevere towards their path to
healthier lifestyles. These individuals were
motivated and inspired as they accessed
the Path-to-Wellness website, sought infor-


mation on national weight loss challeng-
es, committed to daily exercise regimes,
learned the value of nutrition, and counted
calories during their 56-day journey, which
began on February 18th.
Sponsored through a grant provided by
the Lake Okeechobee Rural Health Net-
work and the Everglades Area Health Edu-
cation Center, in conjunction with the local
hospital, this program was created to help
employees develop and maintain healthier
and happier standards of living through
weight loss, smoking cessation, and diabe-
tes education.
The Hendry Regional Medical Center
employees who joined this program are
quite proud of themselves. Their toned
bodies, glowing faces and even new
clothes (for those who dropped in sizes)
generate enough interest and curiosity for
people to stop and ask, "What's your se-
cret; how did you lose that weight?" Their
answer "It was my Path to Wellness."
If you're interested in learning more
about employee health wellness,. call Toni
Pavey-McDaniel at Hendry Regional Cor-
porate Health 863-983-1123.

Is your home firewise?


Become a partner in fire protection. The
simple truth is that our fire departments
don't have enough resources to protect ev-
ery home in the County or City.
Much of what is known about protect-
ing homes from wildland fire is based on
the research of the U. S. Forest Fire Lab in
Missoula, Montana. They have found that
most homes lost to fire is due to ignition
of the two most vulnerable parts of your
home:
*The roof and eaves
*The area immediately surrounding
your home or structure
Home ignitions usually occur over rela-
tively short distances tens of yards, not
hundred of feet from little things associated
with either:
Fire brands (wind blown embers)
landing on and around the structure or
flames from slow-moving, low-intensity
surface fire contacting flammable portions
of the structure.
This means the homeowner can play
a significant role in reducing home loss-
es from wildfires by reducing fuels and
through landscaping in the "home ignition
zone," an area that extends outward from
the home 100 200 feet in all directions.
The most critical area is a zone of "defen-
sible space" within 30 feet of the structure.
Inside your "defensible space":
*Trim lower branches up to 10 feet on
tall trees, remove vines from the trees, and
keep shrubbery away from the pine trees
so that a fire on the ground cannot climb
up these fuel ladders to the tree tops.
Keep combustible items like wood
piles, compost piles, gas grills, gas cans,
and propane tanks at least 30 feet away
from your house. Clear away dead vegeta-.
tion, pine needles and branches.
Use mowed grass, gravel walkways,
and mulched plantings near your home.
Although mulch helps retain soil moisture,
it must be kept moist or it becomes a fuel
source..
Remove flammable plants like saw
palmetto, wax myrtle, yaupon holly, red
cedar and gall berry from within 30 feet
from your home.
How do you maintain a lean, clean,
and green landscape within 30 feet of your
structures? The important thing is that

action MUST be taken before a wildfire
threatens.
Lean small amounts of flammable
vegetation
Clean no accumulations of dead veg-
etation
*Green plants are healthy and green;
lawn is well irrigated.
Walk around outside your home and
look carefully at the land near your home.
The type, size, and density of the plants
determine wildfire risk. Some places may
have characteristics of more than one cat-
egory. Use the following criteria to assess
your risk:
You are at Low Risk if you see:
Bare ground, improved pasture, or
widely spaced grass clumps or plants.
*Moist forest, mostly leafy trees, or
mostly large trees.
*A few plants growing low to the
ground.
*Oak leaves or other broad leaves cov-
ering the ground.
You are at Medium Risk if you see:
*Thick, continuous grasses, weeds, or
shrubs.
*Continuous thin layer of pine fieedles
and scattered pine trees.
*Scattered palmettos or shrubs up to
3 feet tall separated by patches of grass or
sand.
*A clear view into or across the unde-
veloped area.
You live in a High Risk, Fire-Prone Area
if you see:
*A thick bed of pine needles and lots of
pine trees.
*Continuous palmettos, shrubs, or
sawgrass more than 3 feet tall.
*Vines and small-to-medium trees or
palms beneath tall pine trees.
*Impenetrable shrubs or young pines.
*No clear view into the undeveloped
area because of dense growth.
Remember, homeowners must become
partners in fire protection.


For a modest charge,
each package includes:
*A print announcement in the
newspaper of your choice.
*An online listing at
www.newszap.com/celebrations.
*Online guestbook for friends
and family to sign and view.
*Online photo gallery for up to
10 photos.

Area track teams



compete in state meets


Pahokee, Moore Haven 4 x
100 teams, Glades
Central girls 4 x 400,
Anthony, Thornton win
silver

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
WINTER PARK A few area teams came
tantalizingly close to, winning gold medals in
last weekend's state track championships.
Merill Noel, a member of Pahokee's 4 x
100 relay team, knows that. feeling.
In Pahokee's only appearance at the
Class 2A state championships, held on May
2, Noel simply tipped his hat to Miami-Mon-
signor Pace, who won state gold in the 4 x
100.
Monsignor Pace, who easily won the
Class 2A boys team title (82 points), held
off Pahokee for the 4 x 100 win (Monsignor
Pace 40.54, Pahokee 41.75).
"Miami Pace ran the fastest 4 x 100 time I
ever seen," Noel said.
"You can't stop speed and Pace had it.
"That's all it is, but next year, we should
pull it off and win state in the 4 x 100."
Pahokee received all eight of their team
points in the state meet, winning sliver med-
als.
The 4 x 100 relay team consisted of Noel,
De'Joshua Johnson, Nu'Kesse Richardson
and Latwan Rutledge.
Glades Central's 4 x 100 team [Tavares
Crawford, Charles Dowers, Willie Johnson,
Rantavious Wooten and came in fifth, with
a time of 42.67, which earned them medals
as well.
Glades Central's Rupert Bryan placed
fifth in the discus (159-01) and his team-
mate, Jim Knowles, placed seventh .in the
shot put (45-6 1/2).
Willie Johnson (Glades Central) came in
sixth in the long.jump (22-6 1/2).
Patrick Billings (Glades Central) finished
12th overall in the boys 800 meter run
(2:00.83), failing to earn a medal in his best
event.
Nonetheless, it was Billings' personal
best time this season.
Rantavious Wooten (Glades Central)
finished seventh in the 200 (22.53), well be-
hind the top two (Monsignor Pace's Derrick
Hopkins 21.39 and Suncoast's Tony Mc-
Quay- 21.79).
The Glades Central boys team finished in
a tie for 15th place with 14 points overall.
The girls from Glades Central did much
better, with Vanessa Anthony capturing two
sliver medals in the 100 and 300 meter hur-
dles, respectively.
Anthony, who was last year's state cham-
pion in the 300 hurdles, was beat out by Ena
Johnson of Florida High for the gold medal.
Johnson's time was 43.76, while Anthony
was next with 44.17 the same time John-
son recorded at the preliminaries.
In the 100 hurdles, Anthony was edged


out by Raines sophomore Ariel Stockton .
Stockton finished the race in 15.03 sec-
onds, while Anthony was right behind at
15.09 seconds.
Glades Central's 4 x 400 team [Anthony,
Martha Jaimes, Hentoya Parker and Erica
Wint] finished second overall (3:58.82), be-
hind state champion Raines (3:49.73).
As a team, Glades Central came in eighth
place (24 points), well behind the Class 2A
girls state titlist in Raines (84 points).

Class 1A state meet
Glades Day's Joshua Thornton barely
missed out on becoming a state champion
in the 400.
He was bested by West Gadsden's Bran-
don Thomas for the gold medal (Thomas -
49.05, Thornton 49.56).
"I was so close to winning this," Thorn-
ton said.
"It just broke my heart, but I did the best
I could," he continued.
Glades Day's 4 x 100 relay team failed to
qualify for the final, but Moore Haven's 4 x
100 [Keivon Bell, Elazarus Blackmon, Xavier
Fagan and Josh Patterson] finished second
overall in the May 1 Class IA state champi-
onships (43.68).
Glades Day's 4 x 100 team consisted of
Davonte Allen,'Amir Pollock, Eaton Spence
and Kelvin Taylor.
Amir Pollock (Glades Day) finished fourth
overall in the 100 (11.62 seconds).
Uriah Johnson (Glades Day) paced eighth
overall in the 300 meter hurdles (43.82).
Ryan Soriano, Johnson's teammate,
failed to qualify for the 300 hurdles final, fin-
ishing 10th in the prelims.
As for the Moore Haven Terriers, Keivon
Bell finished fourth overall in the 200 (22.84),
while his teammate, Elazarus Blackmon,
failed to qualify for the 200 final, finishing
10th in the prelims.
The Moore Haven boys team finished
seventh place overall in the Class IA state
meet (22 points), with Glades Day's boys
team ending up tied for 15th (14 points).
No one from Clewiston qualified for the
Class 2A state meet, while no girls from
Glades Day made the Class 1A state meet.
No girl from Pahokee qualified to com-
pete at the Class 2A state meet, while no girl
from Moore Haven scored any points at the
Class IA state meet this year.

Leadership Glades presents gift to new Glades hospital


The 2009 class of Leadership Glades, a
program that prepares future leaders in the
western portions of Palm Beach County,
made an investment in the future of health-
care in its community. The class presented
a donation to Glades Healthcare. Foundation
to benefit the capital campaign for Lakeside
Medical Center. Due to open in Octob'er, it
will replace Glades General Hospital and will
be the only public hospital in Palm Beach
County.
The $2,400 Leadership Glades gift will be
applied to a $1.5 million challenge grant that
The Kresge Foundation awarded the founda-
tion to complete the hospital's capital cam-
paign. More than $65.4 million has already
been committed to the $73 million funding
goal to date.
Leadership Glades offers students a series
of in-depth seminars on topics ranging from
health and the environment, to the arts and
the future of the Glades. Brenda Bunting, a
spokesperson for the program, said the new
hospital ties in with the program's mission
to improve the lives of people living in the
Glades.
Reflecting on the gift presentation, Rob-
ert Champion, Director of Food Services at
Glades General Hospital said, "As the class
leader, I am proud of my class members'
participation in service to the Glades and all
their efforts to raise funds for the new Lake-
side Medical Center."
Dolly Hand, a long-time Glades resident
and Glades 'Healthcare Foundation board


member, was on hand to receive the dona-
tion and thanked Leadership Glades. "I am
touched by your generous gift to the new
hospital. But I am even more grateful for the
moral support each of you is expressing for
the new hospital through this gift. This is tru-
ly a testament to the community's support
of our new hospital."
Lakeside Medical Center will serve 40,000
residents in the communities surrounding
Lake Okeechobee. The new regional hos-
pital will provide enhanced healthcare for
a community with complex health condi-
tions, including high rates of diabetes and
cardiopulmonary disorders. "Providing a lo-
cal delivery system for the country's western
communities is crucial," said David Good-
lett, board chairman of Glades Healthcare
Foundation. "We are grateful to Leadership
Glades' support and hope that all members
of Palm Beach County will follow its lead
and make an investment in the future of our
only public hospital."
Donations in support of Lakeside Medi-
cal Center and The Kresge Foundation's
challenge grant can be mailed to Glades

Mother's Day An inadequate
tribute-
By The Reverend Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
One church where I served celebrated
Mother's Day and Father's Day with a break-
fast. The men were supposed to cook on
Mother's Day and the women on Father's
Day. What usually happened was that the
women did the preparation and cooking on
both occasions! Mothers are like that: mak-
ing sure things happen even if it means extra
work for a party, or special occasion for chil-
dren with their clubs.
Mothers know the importance of tradi-
tions fo make a family what it should be; the
value of a celebration to give a place in the
home to all who live there, the ways of ex-
pressing love with a special cake on a special
occasion. They also work to keep the home
even when conditions work against them
or help is not forthcoming. There is some-
thing about the importance of home and
stability in the family that they have come to
embody; seeking to provide even under the
most difficult circumstances.
The Lord came into this world by shar-
ing an earthly home. He would have an
earthly mother to deliver Him, to search for
Him when He was separated from His fam-
ily, to gently chide Him at a wedding feast
when there was no wine at the celebration,
to stand with Him and finally to weep with
Him at the end of His earthly life. He could
have come in any way He chose but elected
to share an earthly home from His begin-
ning with the one who makes home all it
can ever be.
Nurturing, protecting, sustaining, teach-
ing the lessons of socialization, and showing
faith-hope-love; Jesus would experience all
of these things with Mary and the family she
was to give to husband and children. God
sets before us this miracle worker when we
take time out and see her in our own lives;
those who have been "Mother" to us and
those who provide us with life from day
one. Jesus chose to hallow His coming to
us through a human mother so should we
hallow she who gives us life and then nur-
tures us from dependence to maturity and
independence in a few short years. Shaping,
prodding, comforting, providing, protecting,
teaching the lessons needed to cope with
the world outside, being physician, coun-
selor, chef, housekeeper, social director; the
roles and requirements are more'than we
can imagine. We take out a day to celebrate
them; at least those things that we can re-
call. I prefer to think of Mother as one who
not only bears God's image but who shares
in His work beyond my imagination or ca-
pacity to fully understand; and always being
thankful for that human embodiment of His
presence among us. Thank you Mother's -
God bless you in your witness, accept our
humble and inadequate appreciation for
who you are and what you do.
In memory of Brian
By Pastor John Hicks-
First United Methodist Church
We preachers always hope that God has
given us the right words, and that we are in-
struments through which God speaks.


When Pastor Brian Hamrick of First Bap-
tist Church of Clewiston became sick, the
pastors of our community lifted him up in
prayer. When things became more serious
and the church called a prayer vigil to bathe
Brian in prayer, a number of us were there.
During that time of prayer, God spoke to me
and I was called to share blessings for the
church for the way they had pulled together
in the midst of their "downed" shepherd and
to encourage them as a church to continue
to do so. I also got a very clear message that
Brian was going to be okay. I felt led to share
that message as well.
Brian seemed to get better, then com-
plications set in. On April 24, he died. It hit
me hard. He was a young 31 years and four
months old. He had a wife and two sons
ages 1 and 3. How could this happen? The
message I had received seemed so clear. I
once again turned to God this time with
questions.
God came back to me, "Brian is okay.
What about you?" I realized that the mes-
sage I had received was true. I was looking
for Brian to be healed. What Brian got was
the ultimate healing.
For those of us with faith, death is not the
end, but a "going home" to be with God.
Brian's earthly body may have perished, but
his heavenly body lives on for eternity. Brian
is more than okay.
But what about us? What if you were
to die today, or your spouse, or your child?
Would you be okay? Would they? How is
your soul? How is theirs? No one knows
what tomorrow holds, but we know who
holds tomorrow. It would do us good to
make sure of our connection with Him who
holds our tomorrows so that when the roll is
called up yonder, we'll be there.
One of Brian's favorite verses was Phi-
lippians 1:21, "For me, to live is Christ and
to die is gain." Brian's service was a living
testimony to this. We did not experience a
funeral, but a celebration of his life and love
for his God. Vaya con Dios, my brother. May
we also claim blessed assurance, Jesus is
mine.
"For the love of Mother"
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Mother's Day has come to be one of the
most appealing and impressive days in the
life of the American people. On this day, peo-
ple from the President in the White House to
the humblest tenant in his cabin, pause to
pay tribute to the best-loved person in the
world Mother. The most beautiful sight in
all the world is the picture of a Mother with
her baby in arms. It is not any wonder that
artists, painters, sculptors, poets and orators
have summoned their resources to give a
worthy portrait of Motherhood. Motherhood
- the highest crown of womanhood.
How many times have you wanted to hug
your Mother and tell her "Thank You" for all
she has done for you? For Anna Jarvis in
1908 this desire was so great that she helped
create a whole day for Mom-thanking. Anna,
whose Mother was an early advocate of a
day for Mothers, carried on to completion
the effort to establish an annual Mother's
Day. She planned and arranged for a Church
Service on May 10, 1914. President Wilson
issued a proclamation declaring the second


Sunday in.May to be observed as Mother's
Day throughout America.
And the Carnation? Anna also inniated
the custom of wearing Carnations in order
that Mothers might be further honored...
and because it was her Mother's favorite
flower.
Several years back I was ministering over
at Lakeport and we had come there from
New Mexico. Our son, Steve, who remained
in New Mexico called his Mother, my wife,
Pattie, and sang a song that he had just writ-
ten to his Mother. Here are the words:
"For all the love you gave to me, when
I was young and sat' upon your knee; You
held me in your arms and rocked me into
sleep. And I never said, "Thank you." And
for all the times when I fell down, you were
always there to wipe away my frown, you
made me laugh whenever I was down. And
I never said, "Thank you." 0 "Thank you,"

Mom, this is me, singin' for you, and if none
of my dreams in life come true, there's just
one thing I really wanna do, I wanna say,
"Thank you, 0 "Thank you" for loving me.
And for the times when I was sick in bed,
you were always there to put a cold clothe
upon my head. You lost your sleep, and all
in my stead. And I never said, "Thank you."
And for the nights you read me to sleep,

Americans Month, a time for all of us to cel-
ebrate the accomplishments and contribu-
tions of seniors while focusing on their cur-
rent and future needs. As a country, we've
S witnessed together the importance of plan-
ning for the future; our health care systems

State of Florida Emergency Response Team: Swine Flu


Department of Health and State Teams
remain vigilant in unified efforts to educate
and inform Floridians about HiN1 swine flu.
If you are ill, plan to stay home from work or
school to avoid infecting others.
Current Situation
*Florida has five confirmed cases in the
following counties: two in Lee, one in Bro-
ward, one in Orange, and one in Pinellas.
*Alachua, Lee, Indian River, Okeecho-
bee, Palm Beach, Seminole, and Clay have
one probable case each. Miami Dade and
Broward each have three probable cases.
Hillsborough County has six probable cas-
es.
State Actions
On Friday, May 1, Governor Charlie Crist
directed State Surgeon General Dr. Ana
Viamonte Ros to declare a public health
emergency that will allow the State Sur-
geon General to take any action necessary
to protect the public health (Florida Statutes,
381.00315).
*The Florida Flu Information Line, a toll
free information service, has been estab-
lished to address an increasing number of
calls from the public requesting Swine Flu


information. The number is 800-342-3557.
Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
(EDT). An automated service is available
after hours.
*On Monday the line received 1,151 with
460 calls seeking information on flu symp-
toms. 216 calls for general information,. 104
calls regarding confirmed cases, and 80 calls
received regarding school closures.
*Statewide conference calls continue.
County emergency management and health
department officials will give a briefing on
the current situation, state actions and pro-
vide a forum to pose questions to Depart-
ment of Health and Emergency Manage-
ment senior officials.
*The State Emergency Response Team
(SERT) remains at a level 2 activation (par-
tial). The team is monitoring the situation
and is coordinating with the Swine Flu Inci-
dent Command team.
*Antiviral medication has been distribut-
ed statewide. Florida has over one half mil-
lion individual courses.
*The Florida Department of Education is
now posting school closures at: http://www.
fldoe.org/closed-schools.asp


Federal and International Actions
*The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention has reported 276 confirmed cas-
es of swine flu (HIN1) in the United States,
with one death.
*The World Health Organization alert
level remains at Phase 5. The declaration
of a Phase 5 is a strong signal that the pan-
demic is imminent and that the time to final-
ize the organization, communication, and
implementation of the planned mitigation
measures is short.
Public Actions recommendations from
the Florida Department of Health
*Wash hands frequently to lessen the
spread of respiratory illness.
*People with respiratory illness should
stay home from work or school to avoid
spreading infections, including influenza, to
others in the community.
*Avoid close contact with people who
are coughing or otherwise appear ill.
*Avoid touching your eyes, nose and
mouth.
*People experiencing cough, fever and
fatigue, possibly along with diarrhea and
vomiting, should contact their physician.


Other Notes-
*The symptoms of swine flu in people are
similar to the symptoms of regular human flu
and include fever, cough, sore throat, body
aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some
people have reported diarrhea and vomiting
associated with swine flu. Like seasonal flu,
swine flu may cause a worsening of underly-
ing chronic medical conditions.
*Swine influenza viruses are not trans-
mitted by food and a person cannot get
swine influenza from eating pork products.
The infections appear to spread from person
to person.
The Florida Department of Health has
created a webpage with information at
www.doh.state.fl.us, and the CDC has aweb
page at www.cdc.gov/swineflu

Florida Recognizes May as Clean Air Month


State encourages citizens to
help protect air quality

TALLAHASSEE Recognizing that clean
air is vital to Florida's health, environment
and economy, Governor Charlie Crist has
proclaimed May 2009 as Clean Air Month.
To celebrate this designation, the Florida
Department of Environmental. Protection
(DEP) and the Florida Department of Trans-
portation (FDOT) are encouraging Florida's
residents, businesses and visitors to adopt
environmentally friendly practices to help
protect.Florida's air quality.
"Recognizing May as Clean Air Month re-
inforces the state's commitment to meeting
and exceeding air quality standards," said
DEP Secretary Michael W Sole.
"By monitoring air quality, promoting pol-
lution prevention, administering pollution
controls, and coordinating with local, state
and federal clean air programs, we strive to
ensure that Florida's air quality is among the
cleanest in the nation."
According to the U. S. Environmental Pro-
tection Agency, the average adult breathes
more than 3,000 gallons of air every day.
Children, who breathe more air per pound
of body weight, are even more susceptible
to air pollution..
Keeping these statistics in mind, there are
many steps Floridians can take to prevent air
pollution and protect human health, as well


as the environment.
These steps include:
*Drive less- use public transportation,
carpool or ride a bike.
*Use energy efficient products.
*Use reel or electric lawn mowers.
*Compost rather than burning waste
materials.
*Use green cleaners.
'Maintain heating and air conditioning
units.
*Avoid using oil-based paints, solvents or
varnishes which contribute to ground level
ozone.
*Recycle.
*Plant native trees and shrubs.
*Spread the word.
Another way to help protect air quality
is to plan ahead with 511 before hitting the
road. FDOT offers a free 511 Travel Informa-
tion System that provides drivers up-to-the-
minute roadway information on all Florida
interstate highways and major metropolitan
roadways.
Utilizing the 511 system helps drivers
avoid congested roadways and reduces ve-
hicle emissions by minimizing traffic idling.
Callers can also use 511 to connect to public
transit agencies.
The free resource is available from a lan-,
dline or cell phone, by dialing 511, or on the
Web at www.FL511 .com.
In the last decade, Florida has achieved
large reductions in emissions of soot, sulfur


dioxide and smog-contributing nitrogen ox-
ide through a combination of enforcement,
conversion to cleaner fuel and implementa-
tion of federal requirements, such as the fed-
eral Clean Air Interstate Rule.
In December, Florida's Idle Reduction
Rule went into effect, placing an idling limit
of five minutes on heavy-duty diesel vehicles
to reduce greenhouse gas and other poten-
tially hazardous emissions.
DEP's Division of Air Resource Manage-
ment also recently issued permits for pollu-
tion controls at three coal fired power plant
facilities who have committed to reducing
emissions Gulf Power Crist, Gulf Power
Smith and Progress Energy's Crystal River
Units four and five.
These permits will lead to significant
reductions in fine particle pollution and
ground-level ozone.
These actions, plus the Governor's
2007 Executive Orders and the energy bill
(HB7135) passed during the 2008 Legisla-
tive Session, have helped propel Florida as a
leader in environmental protection.
A number of other initiatives have also
been set in motion to further that commit-
ment, including a cap-and-trade regulatory
program to reduce greenhouse gas emis-
sions, a renewable fuel standard and re-
newable portfolio standard that gives added
weight to wind and solar energy, plus in-
creased energy efficiency and conservation
requirements.


In addition to implementing improved
building codes to increase the energy per-
formance of newly constructed buildings.
DEP's Division of Air Resource Manage-
ment is tasked with protecting, conserving
and restoring Florida's air, with the primary
goal of protecting the health of its residents.
Air pollution comes from many sources
including factories, power plants, dry clean-
ers and motor vehicles.
The division implements the federal
Clean Air Act and appropriate statutes to
protect Floridians.
The division also monitors .the state's air
pollution control programs and coordinates
Florida's work with the efforts of other local,
state and federal air quality programs.

Emergency Assistance for Livestock program


Assistance extended to
Honey Bees, and Farm-
Raised Fish Program

Clewiston, Fl Florida Hendry/Glades/
Collier Counties, Joy Llossas, County Execu-
tive Director for USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA), reminded farmers and ranchers that
the 2008 Farm Bill created five new disaster
programs, one of which is the Emergency
Assistance for Livestock, Honey Bees; and
Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP).
ELAP provides emergency relief to pro-
ducers of livestock, honey bees, and farm-
raised fish to. aid in the reduction of losses
because of disease, adverse weather, or


other conditions, such as blizzards and wild-
fires, as determined by the Secretary, during
the calendar year, that are not covered by
the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Pay-
ments Program (SURE), Livestock Indem-
nity Program (LIP), and Livestock Forage
Disaster Program (LFP).
"Livestock, honey bee, and farm-raised
fish producers who have incurred 2008 and/
or 2009 calendar year losses not covered
by SURE, LIP, and LFP are advised to begin
compiling their loss documentation, if inter-
ested in ELAP," said Ms. Llossas.
"Livestock, honey bee, or farm-raised fish
producers must provide FSA with verifiable
documentation for all losses for which com-
pensation is wanted."


Producers shall be advised that loss doc-
umentation will not be accepted by County
Offices until their ELAP applications are
filed.
All types of losses for which livestock,
honey bee, and farm-raised fish producers
may be compensated for under ELAP will
not be known until the regulations for ELAP
are
published in the Federal Register.
Verifiable documentation must include
verifiable documentation for purchased feed
and or harvested feed documentation.
Honey bee producers who incur physical
losses of honey bees and honey bee hives
because of colony collapse disorder must
provide documentation and/or a certification


that the loss of honey bees was because of
colony collapse disorder from one or more
of the following:
*Registered entomologist,
*Cooperative Extension specialist, and
*Land Grant University.
Farm-raised fish producers who incur
physical losses of farm-raised fish because
of adverse weather or other conditions must
provide documentation of beginning inven-
tory on the beginning date of the adverse
weather event and the ending inventory.

Florida Crystals welcomes federal dollars


Company is encouraged
by funding for construction
of Everglades Restoration
projects

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. April 30,2009
- Florida Crystals Corporation welcomes
the much-needed $96 million from the Fed-
eral Government announced this week that


will be used for immediate construction of
Everglades restoration projects.
"We are encouraged to see the Federal
Government living up to its commitment to
Everglades restoration," said Gaston Can-
tens, Vice President of Florida Crystals.
"And, more importantly, with so many
restoration projects on hold, we are opti-
mistic the money will go to the construction
and implementation of planned projects
that will not only restore the Everglades but
create critical jobs in these tough economic


times."
Instead of simply buying more land, the
federal contribution will pay for the con-
struction of two CERP projects -- a reservoir
next to the Loxahatchee National Wildlife
Refuge and for restoration of Picayune
Strand, an 85-square-mile area that was
over-drained in the early 1960s as part of a
failed housing development.
Florida Crystals is encouraged to see
some restoration projects may get back on
track.


The company is hopeful future dollars
will be put toward projects that will address
the source of pollution in the watersheds
north of Lake Okeechobee, as present
phosphorus loading to the lake is nearly
five times higher than the limit that must be
met by 2015.
In order to solve Florida's water issues
and achieve effective restoration, we must
address the entire water system Lake
Okeechobee, the estuaries and the Ever-
glades.

according to. the PBSO.
The victim is reportedly expected to sur-
vive the incident, with no other information
released on this case at press time.
J.D. Patrick, Belle Glade's recreational di-
rector, was none too pleased about what oc-
curred in the early morning hours of May 1.
Nonetheless, he believes that the marches
are a step in the right direction for the city.
"It's reaching the people," Patrick said.
"I think it's serving its purpose in getting
the message out there," he continued.
"We need to cut this foolishness out."
Speaking of which, many residents say
the majority of the shootings have involved
the youth, whether they are assailants, vic-


tims or both.
Recently, Willie J. Thomas, a 15-year-old
Glades Central High School student, was
shot to death near the 715 Mobile Home
Park.
Dr. Camille Coleman, the Glades Central
principal, spoke to the crowd at the loading
ramp about how the students dealt with the
loss of their classmate.
"The lives that have been lost impact .our
students greatly," Coleman said.
"We are recommitting to making sure
our students are safe and this rally repre-
sents that."
Reverend Lionel F. Camel, the pastor of
Mt. Calvary Baptist Church in Belle Glade,
was the keynote speaker at the May 1 rally.
His message focused on how the area's
clergy can play a key role in shaping up the
future of the Glades.
"We're in the midst of a storm," Camel


said.
"The Bible lets us know that God shows
up in the midst of it.
"The people of God will be able to re-
claim the city streets we're living in," he con-
tinued.
"I believe the children of God are going to
take the lead in these trying times.
"We're going to be the head and not the
tail," he said in confidence.
"Once we have a serious commitment
toward our faith, I feel our circumstances
are gonna change for the better."
Rev. Robert Rease, the pastor of St. John
Missionary Baptist Church in Belle Glade,
credited both Camel and Glades Covenant
Church (South Bay) Pastor Ken Jackson for
the series of marches and rallies.
It was revealed that Camel came up with
the march and Jackson gave birth to the idea
of a rally against violence.


"What we did was put both of their ideas
together to make it happen," Rease said.
"The sheriff's office and the city were 100
percent behind it once they found out about
it."
Rev. Rease said the next two marches
will convene in Pahokee and South Bay, re-
spectively.
The Pahokee march will be held tomor-
row at an unspecified location, with the
South Bay one to be held on Friday, May 15.
"We want to get to all the cities as quickly
as we can," Rease said.
"We need everyone to see that we're
working together as a tri-cities effort."
Rev. Rease is hoping there will be one
large rally at the end of the series, which has
not yet been determined at this time.
For more information, please contact
Rev. Lionel F. Camel at 261-9020.

J.J. Taylor Companies] said to the audience,
'This- high school senior defines "Yes We
Can',' my heart started pounding fast be-
cause I knew he was talking about me."
Alejandro remembers hearing the Span-
ish translation for 'Yes We Can' from watch-
ing a series of Mexico soccer games, where
fans yell out 'Si Se Puede.'
"When [President] Barack Obama said
'Yes We Can' in his speeches, that originally
came from Mexico," Alejandro claims.
Dr. Camille Coleman, Glades Central High
School's principal, said that Alejandro's ac-
complishment 'was like Glades Central win-
ning an Academy Award.'
"When they called his name, I was very
excited about it," Coleman said of Ale-
jandro.
"It just goes to show that hard work pays
off and anyone could do it."
Alejandro thanked Coleman for being
'an excellent principal and making a differ-
ence.'
"Glades Central nowadays is changing
more towards academics," Alejandro.said.
"Dr. Coleman really cares about the kids
and that's why she's the principal I'll miss
when I go to college."
Alejandro plans to go to college at the
University of Florida, where he'll become a
computer science major.

Big dreams ahead
No one in Alejandro's family has earned
a bachelor's degree.
Despite the challenges that his parents,
Ramon and Amalia, have faced in the past,
Alejandro aims to make his dream a reality.
Alejandro's parents arrived in the United
States in 1991 from Mexico, the year of Ale-
jandro's birth.
Neither parent has earned a college de-
gree to date, but Amalia is working toward a
certificate in pre-school education.
As a teacher's aide at the East Coast Mi-
grant Head Start in the Duda Subdivision,
Amalia hopes she could become a pre-
school teacher within the next few years.
She is expected to earn her certificate by
2011.


Submitted photo
Alejandro is the recipient of a Pathfinder Award for excellence in his studies.


That's an accomplishment in and of it-
self, as Amalia never finished high school in
Mexico but received her GED in the United
States.
It's something that has helped Alejandro
realize the importance of education in his
young life.
"It's better for the kids to live here be-
cause they can become bilingual and get
far in life when they're looking for jobs in
the future," Amalia said of Alejandro and his
three siblings.
Alejandro said that his mother inspired
him to take education seriously,' especially
when it came to him not being able to speak
English as an elementary school student.
He was enrolled in the ESOL (English as
a Second Language) program at Gove El-
ementary School.
Alejandro also credits a special teacher
at Gove Elementary for his progression in
English.
"During my first years in elementary
school, my third and fourth grade teacher
[Amy Pitts] influenced me in that I was able
to speak English and read advanced books
when I was younger," Alejandro said.
But that wasn't the only obstacle Ale-
jandro had to overcome as a youngster.
As the oldest of four children, Alejandro
was given the task of helping his mother


raise his siblings Mayoli, 12, Carlos, 10 and
Gerardo, 5.
In addition to that duty, Alejandro learned
how to help his father, Ramon, with the
maintenance of his two Sugar Cane Grow-
ers semi-trucks.
Ramon is a seasonal truck driver for Sug-
ar Cane Growers.
"Out here with my parents, I've gained a
lot of experience in things other than school-
work," Alejandro said.
"With my mom [Amalia], I've .learned
how to manage a home through her and I
got to know how to take care of babies."
Alejandro has participated in a lot of ac-
tivities at Glades Central, including the Thes-
pian Society, the Oracle Academy, the His-
panic Club and the National Honor Society,
among many others.
A Take Stock in Children scholarship
winner, Alejandro is a two-time Migrant
Student of the Year award winner and has
been awarded Leader of the Year at Glades
Central.
He has also been named Mr. national
Honor Society this year, among many other
achievements.
"I'm very proud of my son [Alejandro]
because he's set an example for his sib-
lings," Amaila said..
"Alejandro motivates them and tells them


they can be whatever they want in life."
What Alejandro wants to become is a
computer scientist and a business owner -
two family firsts.
He doesn't forget to thank his parents for
what she's done for his life.
"Everything I'm doing right now is be-
cause of my mom and dad," Alejandro said.
"I could never repay them enough for
what they did for me," he continued.
"My mom and dad brought me to this
world and allowed me to seek a better life in
the United States."

Mother's Day plans
Alejandro doesn't want to reveal what he
wants to do for his mother on Mother's Day
(Sunday, May 10).
But he knows the importance of appreci-
ating his mother for the impact she has had
on his life.
"Everything my mom has done for' me
and taught me is going to help me in the
long run," he continued.
"Every parent wants the best for their
children."
Alejandro offered some advice for his
peers.
"Parents can sometimes get carried away,
but kids need to understand that they do
whatever they do because they love them,"
Alejandro said.
"All a mother wants to hear from a child
is a simple 'I love you,'" Alejandro said.
Or 'Te amo', a Spanish term for 'I love
you.'
