Wonderful performances: Street Beat at DHCAC


INI/Naji Tobias
Ken Jackson and his brother, Michael E. Jackson, perform together at the May 8.Street Beat
showcase, held at the Dolly Hand Center in Belle Glade.


Talent showcase at theatre


Street Beat inspired
by gospel sensation
Tye Tribbett
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES Street Beat, Inc. may
be the world's best-kept secret.
It's a claim made by Ken Jack-
son Jr., the founder of the arts
program, based in South Bay.
The Street Beat dance group
put on a magnificent series of
performances May 8 at the Dolly
Hand Center, leaving many of the
almost 400 attendees impressed
and some speechless.


A total of five dance groups,
comprised of children from five
years old all the way up to the
young adults, graced the stage.
One of the most notable act
happened when the Destiny (kin-
dergarten and first grade) and
Vision (second through fourth
grade) groups, danced.
Performing under a series of
songs by gospel artist Tye Trib-
bett, they rocked the stage as
Tribbett's songs, such as 'Hold
On,' 'Look Up,' and 'Stand Out,'
played in the background.
The youngsters, who exhib-
ited a great amount of discipline,
were inspired by Tribbett, who
was featured in the showcase's
first piece via video.


Interestingly, the theme for this
year's showcase was 'Stand Out,'
Tribbett's new gospel album and
title track.
With Tribbett as an inspiration
for this year's performances, Scott
was thoroughly impressed with
how the showcase turned out.
The event had a few delightful
surprises, including a set of salsa
and ballroom dance sequences,
a gospel duet song, 'A Prayer.'
sung by Gerald Smith and Mona
King, and a skit entitled 'Teenage
Drama.'
Michael E. Jackson and his
brother, Ken Jr., performed a song

Man



charged



in ATM



thefts

Over $1 million was
reportedly stolen at
11 ATM machines in
nine counties
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
A 33-year-old man was arrested
by authorities May 7 in connection
with a series of ATM thefts through-
out the state.
According to the Fla. Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement (FDLE),
Nasedra Kewon Lumpkin, of Paho-
kee, is accused of stealing a total
of 11 ATM machines in nine coun-
ties.
Officials from the FDLE charged
the suspect with grand theft over
$100,000, a first degree felony.
The charges were originally
filed with the State Attorney's Of-
fice on May 4.
It was revealed that a host of
ATMs were dislodged from their
bases with front end loaders,
which were reportedly stolen from
local construction sites.
The suspect, according to FDLE
officials, used the buckets on the
front end loaders to remove the
ATM machines and lift them into
the back of an unidentified pickup

INI/Naji Tobias
Moore Haven Terriers running back Fred Hall looks to make a statement tomor-
row night against Sheridan Hills Christian.


Spring game is May 15 at
Sheridan Hills Christian

By Naji Tobias
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Jason Bond, the Ter-
rier's third-year head football coach, is in a
happy state right now.
He knows exactly what the team needs
to improve on from last year's 5-5 season
and is currently focused on fixing those ar-
eas of concerns.
"Our biggest area of improvement is go-
ing to be our tackling," Bond admitted.
With Moore Haven's spring game set for
tomorrow night at Sheridan Hills Christian,
Bond has had less than two weeks to work
with his new and returning players.
Spring practices began on Monday, May
4, but Bond is proud of what he sees in the
short time he's had with them.
. "The kids have worked really hard," Bond
said. "We don't have a really deep group of
kids, but they're talented,"
For the spring game, the Terriers will be
led by junior-to-be Keonte White, who is
perhaps the team's fastest player.
As a wide receiver, defensive back and
backup quarterback last season, White will
be replacing outgoing senior Dalton Britt as
the starting quarterback.
Another standout for tomorrow's spring
game is expected to be that of senior-to-be
Fred Hall, who lead the team in rushing last
season with 183 carries for 1,195 yards and
10 touchdowns good for 119.5 yards per
game, according to Maxpreps.com.
"Fred's healthier and faster than last year,"
Bond said. "I expect him and the other kids
to give all they got."
Moore Haven runs a one-back formation,
which Bond says is designed for a balanced


offense, which the Terriers displayed much
of last year.
This year's top receivers will likely be
the trio of juniors-to-be Keivon Bell, a new-
comer, and Cassius Hallback, along with
sophomore-to-be Terry Hallback.
Marshall Britt, the younger brother of Dal-
ton, will be this season's starting tight end.
"Marshal played offensive line last year,
but he has good hands and we'll see what
he could for us in his new position," Bond
said.
Here's a listing of the Moore Haven Ter-
riers roster:
Seniors: Lascelle Humphrey; Cale Rives;
Fred Hall
Juniors: Nick Watson; Keonte White;
Bersain Herrera; Jaime Juarez; Cassius
Hallback; Jermaine Augustine; Matt Lanier;
Hunter Ward; Jose Tito Ortiz; Keivon Bell
Sophomores: Jorge Perez; Marshall
Britt; Jodi Wooten; Terry Hallback; Manuel
Torres; Warner Ward; Tikeem Guyton; Ri-
cardo Garcia
Freshmen: Luis Rico; Kaleb Langdale;
Arliss Ford; Nathan Lee; Joshua Redd; Felipe
Morales; Akkua Hallback; Phoenix Pattison;
Eli Johnson; Vinton Lewis
Eighth graders: Josh Rich; Barrion Co-
hens; Darrion Cohens; Tom Perry; Jeremy
Grech; Thom Barfield; Ty Johnson; Cody
Town; Quanshe Sandier; Michael Elrod;
Josh Rich
Coaching staff: Jason Bond (Head
Coach); Vincent Lewis (Defensive Coordina-
tor); Tim Jones; Chad Pio; Jim Shields; Brad
Garrett
"If we're going to win tomorrow, we
need to stay healthy and improve on our de-
fense," Bond said about the spring game.
Moore Haven's spring football game is
tomorrow night at 7 p.m. in Ft. Lauderdale.

U.S. Sugar Board approves amended two-step SFWMD Land Acquisition


Amended terms of
Acquisition protect rural
jobs and environment
Clewiston The Board of Directors of
the U.S. Sugar Corporation today approved
the amended contract terms for the South
Florida Water Management District's acqui-
sition of the Company's land in two afford-
able phases that enable the Company to
continue its operations.
"Our Board approved the revised acqui-
sition approach implementing Governor
Crist's bold vision for our property. While


the vision and goal remain unchanged, the
economy dictated this more affordable ap-
proach," said Robert Coker, Senior Vice
President, Public Affairs.
"We believe this historic acquisition will
still provide great benefits for the environ-
ment and a fair value for our Company,"
Coker said. "Our board approval brings us
one step closer to getting this done. The
next step is the review and approval of the
.amended contract by the Governing Board
of the SFWMD next week."
Under the amended terms, the SFWMD
initially would acquire nearly 73,000 acres of
the Company's land for approximately $536
million with a 10-year option to acquire the


remaining 107,000 acres. U.S. Sugar would
continue to farm the property through a
7-year lease that may be extended under
certain circumstances. The SFWMD is in the
bond validation process in Florida Circuit
Court. The acquisition is scheduled to close
within 90 days of bond validation.
"This two-step approach provides a
greater degree of certainty for our busi-
nesses, for our employees and also for our
communities by keeping our farming and
processing operations viable for the foresee-
able future," said Robert Coker, senior vice
president, public affairs.
Coker said that under the amended
agreement, U.S. Sugar will lease back the


IRS reminds small tax-exempt organizations to file e-postcards


WASHINGTON-The Internal Revenue
Service today reminded many small tax-
exempt organizations to file their annual
electronic informational return with the IRS
by the May 15 deadline.
This is the second year of the new re-
quirement for tax-exempt organizations
whose gross annual receipts are normally
$25,000 or less to file Form 990-N also
known as e-Postcards. The process is fast
and easy.


The May 15, deadline applies to all small
organizations whose tax year ends on Dec.
31. Organizations whose tax year is differ-
ent from the calendar year must file the e-
Postcard by the 1,5th day of the fifth month
after the close of their tax year.
"The leadership of these small organiza-
tions tends to change rather frequently, so
it is important to remind everyone of this fil-
ing requirement," said Lois Lerner, director
of the IRS's Exempt Organizations division.


"It's important for an organization to file. If
it fails to do so for three consecutive years,
it will automatically lose its tax-exempt sta-
tus."
The e-Postcard is a simple, Internet-
based form that asks a few identifying ques-
tions about the organization. The-Postcard
must be filed online; there is not paper op-
tion.
More information and a link to the e-
Postcard can be found on IRS.gov.


cane land for $150 per gross acre for the ini-
tial seven-year period. The SFWMD can take
nearly 33,000 acres of citrus land with one
year's notice. The SFWMD also may take up
to 10,000 acres of cane land at any time in
the first ten years with a two-year notice for
approved and funded projects. Up to 3,000
acres of transition lands within or adjacent
to local municipalities will be made available
for development or community projects.
"Now it is up to the Governing Board to
approve the contract and move forward to
implement Governor Crist's vision. We are
optimistic that they will," Coker said.

Athletes honored at Glades Central


Cheerleader dies on day of
athletic awards ceremony

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE It felt like a mostly som-
ber affair at last Thursday's (May 7) an-
nual athletic awards at Glades Central High
School.
Held at the school's auditorium, there
were many winners in the. 20 announced
sports categories for the boys and girls com-
bined.
However, the Glades Central cheerlead-
ers suffered a major loss as fellow senior
cheerleader Aungenai Wilson passed away
earlier in the day,
It was not confirmed what the cause of
death was.
As the cheerleaders held hands through-
out their segment of the awards ceremony,
it was evident that heavy hearts dominated
the atmosphere.
After their awards were handed out by
coach Jessica Moreland, the team left the
building to see about Wilson's family.
Hygens Succes, who won three academ-
ic awards that night, was devastated when
discovering what happened that day.
"When I got the news, I was shocked,
man," Succes said. "It's crazy because it hap-
pened just a week away from graduation."
Glades Central's high school graduation
will be tonight at 7 p.m. in the gymnasium.
"I remember speaking to her [Aungenail
that day, I couldn't tell anything was wrong
with her. A lot of people were crying when
they found out, everyone was stunned."
Still, the ceremony carried on.
Succes, who will graduate tonight as the
seventh-ranked senior at Glades Central with
a 3.42 grade point average, won the 2009
Scholar Athlete of the Year.
Willie Johnson, a fellow senior who ran
track this season, was happy with the night's
outcome.
"I felt that everybody got what they de-
served," said Johnson, who qualified for the
Class 2A state meet in the long jump and the
4 x 100 relay. "His last name is Succes and
he lives up to it."
Succes, who also won the academic
award for football and the coaches award
for baseball, attributes his accomplishments
to understanding the importance of aca-
demics.
He'll be going to college for academics,
but hopes to have an opportunity to walk on
the national championship-winning football
team.
"I've always believed in academics be-
fore athletics," Success said. "Once you
gain knowledge, you can never lose it," he
continued. But with football, it can be taken
away from you at any time."
Rantavious Wooten, who will be playing
college football for the University of Georgia
this fall, was the Most Valuable Player (MVP)
in both football and track.
He won the coaches award for boys bas-
ketball, as well.
Wooten, a four-star wide receiver, ac-
cording to Rivals.com., took home the Male
Athlete of the Year.

Spanish Ranchos, Fishing in Ole La Florida


Fishing operations found
in abundance by visiting
surveyors, conquering
countries

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
A lone fishing schooner floated silently
on the motionless, mirrored sea as daylight
quickly approached.
The shrouded darkness, which had en-
gulfed the night, began splitting like a tat-
tered garment, sending long shafts of glow-
ing lights streaking across the eastern skies.
The calmness that had prevailed aboard
the vessel now heightened to excitement, as
fishermen chatted and eagerly awaited the
dawn's light.
The early morning awoke to a fury of
white explosions that erupted around the
fishing schooner like cannon fire.
Huge schools of King Mackerel moved
like ominous, black clouds in the gin, clear
waters, viciously attacking the countless
schools of baitfish that surrounded the ves-
sel.
Men hurriedly threw their baited hand
lines over the ship's sides and soon taut lines
hummed, as the large, predatory fish fought
the metal hooks, embedded deep within
their jaws.
Live, silvery torpedoes, four and five
feet in length, churned the water's surface
before bouncing and flopping across the
schooner's weathered, wooden deck.
This fictitious tale is about the good old
days, when the bountiful waters around
South Florida had a limitless supply of fish
that were waiting for the taking.
It is time to "Take a Walk in The Past" and
read about the Spanish fishing camps along
old La Florida's west coast.
During the 1700s, the South Florida In-
dian populations were severely reduced by
European diseases and slavers, who ruth-
lessly hunted them.
The Indians living in South Florida re-
acted to these chaotic events and made an
unofficial alliance with their old enemy, the
Spanish.
This desperate action opened a door of
opportunity for the Spanish fishermen of
Cuba.
The truce allowed the Spanish fishermen
to develop fisheries on Indian territories in
South Florida that were life threatening, only
years earlier.
The Spanish constructed fishing "ran-
chos" or camps at Boca Grande (The en-
trance to Charlotte Harbor), southward to
San Carlos Bay and the Caloosahatchee
River.
Some South Florida Indians sought ref-
uge on these Spanish Ranchos, working and
fishing with the Spaniards.
The Spanish fishermen and Indians
formed a bond of trust that would endure
into the 1800s.
Over time many of the Indians spoke
Spanish and integrated into the Spanish cul-
ture. I


It is thought by some historians that the
term "Spanish Indians" applied to the South
Florida Indians that lived and worked at the
Spanish fish camps.
The Seven Year War, also known as The
French and Indian War (1754 to 1763),
changed the ownership of La Florida.
In 1763, Spain ceded Florida to England,
in order to recover Cuba, which the English
had taken.
England now owned La Florida, but knew
little about the new tropical possession.
In 1763, George Gauld, a surveyor for the
English Admiralty, was commissioned to ex-
plore the southwest coast.
He reached the Tampa Bay area in the
summer of 1765, where he found Spanish
fishermen living on the Mullet keys.
Later he moved south to Charlotte Harbor,
entering the bay through Boca Grande and
discovered the cluster of islands known to
the Spanish as Los Cayos del Boca Grande.
He described the Spanish fishing camp,
"Plenty of carp (grouper) and other fish on
hooks, a dressing on the stage (fish racks for
curing fish).
"They begin by pressing the fish with a
great weight after it is split and salted, then
hang it up to dry.
"The last operation is to pile it up in the
huts ready for loading.
"They supply Havana and the other Span-
ish settlements in the West Indies, in the
Lent season."
Another Englishman, Bernard Romans,
in 1772, wrote about the Spanish fisheries
on the west coast of Florida, "We see every
year from September to March the Spanish
coming for fish during the season. It is not
uncommon to see three or four hundred
white men maintained, who only bring
some maize, rice and sweetmeats, and for
the rest depend upon their musquets, nets,
hooks, lines, and harpoons.
"During my three years there I have
yearly seen about one thousand tons weight
of dry'd salted fish go from the western
shore."
The old adage, "To the Victor Goes the
Spoils," went into effect when the American
Revolution ended with the Treaty of Paris in
1783.
Spain had supported the thirteen Ameri-
can Colonies during the war and was award-
ed "La Florida" in the Treaty of Paris negotia-
tions.
Spain reoccupied La Florida in 1783, and
in that same year sent a Spanish naval offi-
cer, Joseph Antoniio de Evia, to survey Char-
lotte Harbor.
He reported that the bay abounded in
fish.
According to his account, twelve to four-
teen fishing vessels annually plied its waters
carrying their catches to Havana.
The United States Government purchased
Florida from Spain for five million dollars in
1821.
The Americans like their predecessors,
the English, had few maps of Florida.
Captain Isaac Clark was authorized by
Congress in. 1824, to survey territory around
Charlotte Harbor.
He began by taking an inland route from


Tampa Bay to Charlotte Harbor, but after
enduring much hardship, he concluded that
the completion of his plan, which would
have taken him as far south as Cape Sable,
was unthinkable.
Clark ran out of supplies and in despera-
tion turned to the Spanish fishermen at
Charlotte Harbor.
He reported, "my supplies being exhaust-
ed, no game in the country, no settlements
south either Indian or whites, where sup-
plies could be obtained."
Mr. Clark said, "I procured from the fish-
ery by entreaty and threats one hundred
pounds of hard biscuit, some salt fish and
a small hog, and from an Indian I obtained
some dried venison in all about four days ra-
tions.
"There are three fisheries in the harbor.
They are established on the keys near the
entrance, in all forty three Spaniards and
several Indians.
"They live in huts constructed of the Pal-
metto similar to the Indians. They appear
to be industrious and attend to their Fishery
alone."
William A. Whitehead, Key West collec-
tor from 1831 to 1838, described two kinds
of commercial fishing along the gulf coast.
"First there was a small fleet of fishing
vessels, about thirty in number in 1831,
owned by New England masters, who regu-
larly caught fish and turtle and sold them,
either live or fresh, on the Havana market.
"For these fishermen, the work was sea-
sonal, being restricted to the winter months;
summers they spent in the north."
Mr. Whitman said,. "The Spanish fisher-
men, on the other hand, cured or salted their
catches, selling them over a more extended
period on the Havana market."
Whitehead could not determine if the
two groups interfered with each other.
The Spanish lived on their ranchos, cured
their fish with salt, and even sold them in a
different quarter of Havana.
Their exports, he discovered, were dried
fish, fish roe, and fish oil.
Mr. Whitehead went on to say, "The esti-
mates of the number of persons engaged in
the fishing business vary greatly, as did the
number of "ranchos."
Whitehead was able to locate four main
establishments, employing altogether some
130 men, of whom probably half were In-

dians.
In addition, he found some thirty Indian
women and between fifty and 100 children.
Other visitors reckoned the total number
at the four fishing camps to be 400.
There were variances in the features of
the "ranchos."
Whitehead found that some were com-
posed of a number of dwellings, each struc-
ture some fifteen to twenty-feet square and,
except for a framework of wood, thatched-
both walls and ceilings.
They were equipped with a few cook-
ing utensils, two or three stools, and a rude
table.
La Florida's Spanish fisheries would face
a bleak future in the 1830s.
The loyalty between the Cuban fisher-
men, Spanish Indians and the emerging
Seminoles, would be challenged when the
United States Government declared a state
of war with the Seminole Indian Nation in
1835.
There will be more Tale Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
Florida is repopulated with Native Ameri-
cans that migrate from other parts of North
America.

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

When I was asked to comment on cleri-
cal celibacy, I thought about some of the re-
search done in an allied field, And what. I have
observed over the years. I begin by stating
that I am under no obligation of celibacy and
do not comment as someone with the same
viewpoint as those who believe it is a vocation
for them or a key part of their ministry. In this
sense, I am an outsider making observations
from my own perspective -- only.
The problem arising when a recent report
of a clergyman was found on the beach with
a member of the opposite sex rears its head in
many church relationships, not just celibacy.
Over the years, I have known people who
have changed religions because they felt the
faith of their childhood was wrong on some
key issue and never found an explanation to
give them comfort within the framework of
what they were taught. Churches have had
differing points on alcohol usage, remarriage,
celibacy, birth control, the literal acceptance
of all or parts of the Bible -- and on and on.
There comes a time when a person finds him-
self questioning and not finding real answers,
cogent explanations for that he is supposed to
believe.
I have known some to deal with these con-
flicts by compartmentalizationn" or pretending
that the conflicts don't exists: "Do as I say, not
as I do." They may choose to politely (or not
so politely) ignore the tenets of their professed
faith; choosing what to accept and ignoring the
rest. Personally, I regard such a solution as un-
healthy and un-Christian. Wholeness is key to
well-being, physical, emotional, spiritual well-
being. We have read of a young priest caught
between his love for a woman and vows re-
quiring him to sublimate or deny a part of his
person. There are all sorts of statistics on the
success (or lack of it) on persons professing
to lead celibate lives; all sorts of commentary
about churches being "right" or "wrong" to
impose it; all sorts of opinions and ideas for
support or non-support of this practice.
I choose to look at a person who: 1. Has
a vocation to serve the Lord, ratified by his
parishioners and of his own declaration; and
2. Apparently being in love with another hu-
man being. What 1 would propose is that he
examine other churches and seek one most
compatible with what he professes and what
he believes, and what reconciles the conflict
he is feeling. That's a recommendation I've
made many times when someone tells me of
a conflict between what their church teaches,
what they feel, and how they are uncomfort-
able with where they find themselves.
"Reformation" isn't just a period in history;
sometimes it is a personal opening of doors
and a new face on personal religion. "Seek and
ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto
you." The answer is there, maybe by thinking,
then living, outside of the box!

Heart Love
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Try this! Put your fingertips from your right
hand up against the fingertips of your left hand.
You have just made a bridge. But if you bend
your fingertips together, and let your joined
thumb tips drop a little downward, your hands
create a heart. How you formed this heart with
your hands is what Heart Love is all about it


joins together and bends a little to meet the
other. Heart Love is a love that gives of itself
to another person then forgets the favor ren-
dered. It is a love that finds something to love
in the seemingly unlovable. Heart Love states,
"I love you and I want you to be happy and to
achieve the fullest stature of your being." Heart
Love is what God has given us, and Heart Love
is what we are called to give the world.
One night on Broadway, Mary Martin was
preparing to go on stage, as she had a 1000
times before in Rodger & Hammerstein's
South Pacific. Just before she took stage a note
was handed her. The note was short. It sim-
ply said: "Dear Mary, A bell's not a bell until
you ring it. A song's not a song until you sing
it. Love in your heart is not put there to stay.
Love isn't love till you give it away." The letter
was signed by Oscar Hammerstein, who was.
that evening on his deathbed. When the play
was over the cast rushed her backstage and
asked, "What happened? We've never seen
you perform that way before?" Mary read to
them Hammerstein's note and said, "Tonight, I
gave my love away."
Make the heart again with your hands and
put it up to your face. Take a look around and
imagine taking a snapshot through your hand
heart of everything and everyone around you.
Now imagine going around every day doing
that. The challenge before us is to continue
to look at the world and people around us
through our Heart Love perspective that others
might know and experience God's Heart Love
through us. Remember, we are not necessar-
ily called to like everyone, but we are called to
love them. (Check out 1 John 4:7-8!) The ones
we love are not supposed to be perfect, but it
is the choice to love others and give love away
that matures and perfects each one of us as
Christians.

Pray for America!
By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church
Last week many in America celebrated
"National Day Of Prayer." We need to be pray-
ing for America every day of the year and not
just one. Why? Because the nation which loses
it sense of values and see its focus on gold, sil-
ver, stocks, bonds, houses, lands, property, and
pleasure NEEDS PRAYER!
The nation in which laws are flagrantly
broken, crime is winked at, justice is scorned,
riots, drunkenness, pornography, dope, abor-
tion, homosexuality and other immorality is
tolerated NEEDS PRAYER! And to pray is exact-
ly what every Christian is exhorted to do. Sup-
plication, prayers and intercession are to be
make for all in authority (I Timothy 2:1-2). It is
doubtful that America has ever stood in more
need of prayer for those in places of political
leadership than today!
It is a tragic fact that many people in Amer-
ica are first Democrats, Republicans or Inde-
pendents and then Christians. They place their
party politics above their Christianity. They
prayerlessly vote for men purely because they
are in the same party and not because they are
men of Christian conviction or moral charac-
ter. There is plenty of evidence in the Bible that
God responds to earnest prayers of His people
with regard to national interests. He has His
own sovereign ways of raising up and setting
aside rulers. God was quite ready to hear Abra-
ham's prayers for wicked Sodom and Gomor-
rah. Consider the impact of Daniel's prayer life
on the godless rulers of the great Babylonian
Empire. God's man of prayer was the instru-
ment through which Nebuchadnezzar and
Belshazzar learned that God rules in the king-
dom of men and "giveth it to whomsoever He
wills" (Daniel 4:25). Think of the effectiveness


of Nehemiah's prayers in the restoring of a
defeated, scattered and decadent nation. Take
a second look at Modecai and Queen Esther
when Haman's plot had signed and sealed
Israel's doom. But prayer reversed the whole
situation (Esther 4:1-17).
Pray for America every day! "If my people
which are called by my name shall humble
themselves, and PRAY, and seek my face, and
turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear
from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will
heal their land" (II Chron.7:14)

First Tee program for youth opens in the Glades


Sponsorships play key role
in the golf initiative's forma-
tion

By Naji Tobias
The Sun .
GLADES Move over, football, track and
basketball.
The game of golf took center stage last
weekend for the grand opening of the First
Tee program, sponsored by a number of
corporations.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO) is especially excited about the golf
initiative, with several of its employees serv-
ing as coaches of this upstart program.
PBSO Deputy Stan Jackson is perhaps
one of the biggest fans of First Tee, as he not
only aided in the grand opening setup, but
took scores of photos for the big event.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place at
noon, followed by a life skills lesson, with
many of the approximately 100 attendees
using plastic over-sized golf equipment and
Velcro targets.
First Tee officials claim an equipment
device, entitled Starting New At Golf, is de-
signed to introduce golf to children in a fun
non-intimidating manner.
In addition, the PBSO dedicated the
Project Safe Neighborhood Teen Center, a
building that was funded by the Belle Glade
Housing Authority.
The Office of Community Revitalization
(OCR) reportedly awarded two grants, a
combined total of $25,000, to provide fur-
nishing and services for the teen center's

completion.
"The First Tee youth golf program expos-
es our children to a host of positive values
that will help them both on and off of the
golf course," Jackson said.
Founded in 1997, The First Tee has in-
troduced the game of golf and its values to
more 2.9 million participants and students
in 49 states and five international locations
- Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand,
and Singapore.
First Tee Of Broward Executive Director
James (Skip) Eubanks, who is a supporter of
this initiative, is confident. the golf program
will succeed here in the Glades.
"The First Tee of the Glades is a model for
establishing public and private partnerships
that contribute to the well-being of the com-
munity," Eubanks said.
Executive Assistant U.S. Attorney James
Swain took the time out to speak to the


First Tee's youth participants, as he too, was
encouraged by what went on at the grand
opening event.
He was thankful for the invitation to come
out in support of First Tee in the Glades.
"You all are doing a great job out there
and we wish you much continued success,"
Swain said.
"Keep building young leaders."
An initiative of the World Golf Founda-
tion, First Tee of the Glades is considered a
collaborative model between many organi-
zations combining resources to have a posi-
tive effect on the youth in the area.
Sponsors for First Tee include these indi-
viduals and organizations:

entitled, 'Lord, I Lift Your Name on High.'
The Jackson brothers were joined by
Smith (drums) and Derek Lawson (key-
board) in the jazzed-up segment.
The conclusion of the showcase featured
.a fusion of dance moved inspired by the
genres of hip-hop, gospel, and R&B, which
resulted in a standing ovation at the end.
"These kids are amazing," Jackson said.
"A lot of people' don't expect high perfor-
mance outside of football and track in the
Glades," he continued. "Tye Tribbett is not
gonna put his name on anything, he knows
how good the kids are."
Shanique Scott, the Street Beat artistic


director and lead choreographer, attributed
the showcase's success to what the kids
have learned regarding structure and dis-
cipline. "When you have little kids in their
age bracket, they go through peer pressure,"
Scott said.
"But we let them know they have to be
disciplined in school and at home to per-
form. "These kids love to dance and sing,
that's how we attract them," she continued.
Street Beat's relationship with
Tye Tribbett
The partnership formed in February,
when the Street Beat team opened up for
Tribbett at the Kravis Center in West Palm
Beach. They performed at a Gospel Gala,
an annual event that highlightS some of the
area's best gospel talent.
Scott, a big fan of Tribbett's music, says


that he focuses on 'empowering the youth
and building them up to stand out in a posi-
tive way.'
"Tye is humble and outgoing," Scott said
of Tribbett. "His ministry reaches our gen-
eration," she continued.
"Our teens are interested in him because.
he does what he can to lead our generation
in the right direction."
Just a few weeks ago April 24 to be ex-
act Street Beat was set to go practice for
this year's showcase, but a surprise call from
Tribbett instantly changed their plans.
Street Beat was invited the next day to
perform with him at Bible Church of God in.
Boynton Beach.
After Street Beat took the stage with Trib-
bett for the second time, the gospel sensa-
tion took the time to acknowledge Scott.
"We appreciate what you do with the
young people," Tribbett said to Scott. "I en-


joyed them very much."
The performance can be seen on You-
Tube, where it has generated hundreds of
hits to date. Street Beat was recently invited
by Tribbett to perform at an annual worship
conference next February in Philadelphia.
"Their stage is bigger than the Glades,"
Jackson said of the Street Beat dance group.
"With the excellent structure they have,
the sky's the limit."
Coming up next year for Street Beat is a
string of international performances in Lon-
don, Paris and Rome.
They'll be flying over to Europe in June
2010.
Street Beat will be looking forward to a
nine-week summer session, which begins
on June 8 and ends Aug. 13.
The summer will likely culminate in a yet-
to-be announced showcase performance.

truck.
The thefts, FDLE officials said, reportedly
occurred between January and July of last
yera and involved bank ATMs in Palm Beach,
Indian River, Polk, Orange, Lake, Osceola,
Marion, Seminole and Manatee counties.


The suspect also routinely stole the pick-
up trucks used in the thefts, the FDLE said.
FDLE officials worked in conjunction with
multiple local law enforcement, agencies
throughout the state to track Lumpkin and
link the incidents together.
The use of the front end loaders to steal
the .ATMs caused more than $575,000 in
damage to the banks, according to the
FDLE.
The thefts occurred between the amount
of cash and deposits stolen, FDLE authori-


ties said, totaled over $1 million.
The charge stems from a 15-month inves-
tigation by FDLE's Palm Beach Field Office.,
The suspect is currently being held in the
Leon County Jail, where he was booked after
being arrested for the final ATM theft which
occurred on July 20, 2008 in Tallahassee.
During that incident, FDLE officials said
the suspect originally escaped capture but
was located and arrested 10 days later in
South Carolina.
Now, the suspect will be transferred to


Palm Beach County to be booked on the
new grand theft charges, FDLE investigators
revealed
The case will be prosecuted by Attorney
General Bill McCollum's Office of Statewide
Prosecution.
If convicted of the first degree felony
charges, the suspect could be facing any-
where from a minimum of 30 years to life
in prison.
This information was provided by the
FDLE and the State Attorney's Office.
