Super Bowl hero Santonio Holmes comes home


Families receive free
thanksgiving dinners,
courtesy of Holmes
and Fred Taylor

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE A bevy of
smiles and cheers were on dis-
play at the Boys and Girls Club on
Nov. 24, with a special hometown
celebrity paying a visit.
It was none other than Belle
Glade product and Super Bowl
XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes,
who stopped by to help kick off
a Thanksgiving turkey giveaway
drive.
In his second annual Thanks-
giving giveaway co-headlined
by fellow Belle Glade product
and New England Patriots run-
ning back Fred Taylor Holmes,
in his fourth NFL season with the
Pittsburgh Steelers, looked very
comfortable in his brief stay back
home.


A total of 200 families in the
area were the beneficiaries of
Thanksgiving dinner packages,
which included turkeys, an as-
sortment of canned goods, green
beans, stuffing, sweet potatoes
and a host of desserts, among
others.
Taylor, who came back home
this time last year to host the
Thanksgiving special, couldn't
come out this time.
Taylor was reportedly in Con-
necticut last week, as he's seeing
a specialist to help him overcome
a knee injury sustained earlier in
his first season with the Patriots.
"The time of the year right now
is a time of sharing," Holmes said.
"For me and Fred Taylor to come
back and give dinners to our fami-
lies is something special."
Holmes, who disclosed that
the Boys and Girls club was his
stomping grounds as a young-
ster the facility was actually Lake
Shore Middle School when he
was growing up back in 1996 -

Christmas toys stolen from Casey Gilbert's young boys


Facing a steady
recovery, Gilbert and
family reel from
latest setback

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE It's been a ext-
tough year for Casey Gilbert and
her family, to say the least.
Less than three months af-
ter Gilbert was shot in the head
by her now-deceased boyfriend,


Isaac Robinson Sr., the family has
experienced another unfortunate
event.
The Christmas presents for
Isaac Jr., 3, and Isiah, 2, were re-
portedly stolen from Gilbert's 2008
white Chevrolet Impala sedan.
According to Tamara Martin,
who is Gilbert's mother, the rob-
bery occurred outside her resi-
dence at 501 N. E. 1st St. in the
early morning hours of Nov. 28.
A witness she spoke to report-
edly saw two black males with
black hooded sweaters flee the
scene with the boys' Christmas


presents at about 5:30 a.m.
Martin, distraught by the latest
family setback, had some trouble
fighting back tears when reflecting
on everything that has happened
in the past year.
There are even some nights
when Martin's alone, that she'll
cry herself to sleep.
"I could write a book about
what's been going on," Martin
said solemnly. "It has truly been
devastating for us all."
She is having some trouble
finding a resolution to this latest
act. According to her, the witness

said she can identify the suspects
who broke into her vehicle, but
has not offered to speak to law en-
forcement officials.
Coming home from Pine Crest
Rehabilitation Center in Delray
Beach (where Gilbert stays at
now) exhausted the night before,
Martin did not think the boys' toys
would get robbed.
"I was just too tired to get the
toys out," Martin said. "The boys
[Isaac Jr. and Isiah] were in the
house and I did not want them to

Glades Day triumphs over Jupiter in OT thriller


Glades Central scores
blowout win over American
Heritage (Plantation)

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PORT ST. LUCIE The Region 4-Class 1B
championship showdown between Glades
Day and Jupiter Christian certainly lived up
to its hype.
In a game that featured two different ex-
tremes, plus two heart-stopping overtime
sequences, it was Glades Day that prevailed
- with a 45-44 victory.
Down 44-43 with a chance to either tie
the overtime game up or win it, Gators head
coach Pete Walker, to the surprise of almost
everyone, decided to go for the win.
After Jupiter Christian senior quarter-
back Marshyl Rothman threw an 18-yard
touchdown pass to senior wideout Westin
Pedersen give the Eagles their first lead at
44-37 in overtime, Glades Day's possession
would end up being one no one there will
likely ever forget. On first-and-goal from the
10-yard line, Glades Day sophomore quar-
terback Tanner Redish pitched the ball to
freshman running back Kelvin Taylor.
Almost as quickly as Taylor was handed
the pigskin, he simply muscled his way into
the end zone for a 10-yard score, giving
Glades Day a chance to pull off the surpris-
ing win.


INI/Naji Tobias
The Glades Day Gators, in sheer jubilation, celebrated their playoff win over the
Jupiter Christian Eagles for the Region 4-1 B title on Nov. 27.


With Glades Day kicker Joseph Langmey-
er not available to kick for the extra point -
Langmeyer suffered a shoulder injury in the
game and was not able to get back into it
- Walker made perhaps the gutsiest call of
his coaching career.
To the shock of the Eagles defense and
to many fans of both Class lB teams Glades
Day lines up for the win.
What happened next?
Kelvin Taylor burst into the end zone after


converting on the two-point conversion for
the win. And with Glades Day celebrating
wildly on the Port St. Lucie High School field
in jubilation, they took down the Class 1B
titans, ending their season.
Taylor on Glades Day's landmark win:
"Man, we needed that one bad," he said.
"We just kept it together and our offensive
line blocked well. Our fullback [Joe Jenco]
blocked really well. I always trust my eyes
when Tanner hands me the ball. I always


believe in my teammates and they always
come through for me."
Taylor, who scored five rushing touch-
downs in this wildly exciting contest, pre-
dicted in the preseason, along with Redish
and others, that Jupiter Christian would not
win state for a third time. And Josh Thorn-
ton, who came through on defense with a
key interception off Rothman in the second
half, even predicted boldly a few days be-
fore this game that 'Jupiter Christian has no
chance against us.'
"I'm so excited right now, I can't even ex-
plain it right now," Thornton said after cel-
ebrating with his teammates and coaches.
Jupiter Christian was close to being the
team that would celebrate, after they some-
how found a way to storm back from a 37-
16 fourth-quarter deficit.
After Redish ran in a 1-yard touchdown
score to put the Gators up 37-16 with 11:52
to go in regulation, the Eagles took less than
four minutes to begin the comeback.
But not after Rothman threw his second
pick of the game to Glades Day's Davonte
Allen on the Eagles next possession.
Rothman's second interception perhaps
a season-killer for Jupiter Christian, it seemed
- came after he converted on an 18-yard pass
to senior running back Will Powers to take
the Eagles to Glades Day's 41-yard line.
All Glades Day had to do was score an-
other touchdown to kill Jupiter Christian's

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


The Sun 3


Letter to the editor


So be it
This has been building for some time
now and some of you have probably won-
dered what was going on.
Almost 20 years ago when I returned to
Pahokee, I was shocked at what had NOT
been done to my home town. I made my-
self a promise that I have kept all these years
and that was a promise to keep working
with whomever I needed to bring Pahokee
back. Along the way I have made enemies
and mistakes yet have accomplished a few
things.
I also made myself a promise that when I
no longer believed in the people of Pahokee
that I would just simply STOP. That is where
I am today. Last year several people worked
very hard to make our Christmas Parade and
tree lighting a huge success and I must say
that was one of the most beautiful nights of
my life. It was my pleasure to provide the
people of Pahokee with some well-needed
happiness, so when the season neared this
year, I pushed hard and volunteered again.
Some news outlets actually got tired of my


e-mails about this coming Monday. I even
arranged for a week's vacation to do nothing
but get the city and tree ready for the event.
The Post has written two very nice ar-
ticles asking people to help and The Sun has
had our request printed in their paper for
three months and I must say that even after
all that, not one person other than the lovely
ladies i had on my committee last year, has
bothered to help. I guess we just are not a
community any longer.
It has been very frustrating to hang flyers
around town about our event only to have
them come up missing the next day. I sim-
ply got tired of supplying them. Money was
raised for a "community" Christmas tree this
year but when it arrived in town it suddenly
became just one man's tree.
I am sorry folks, but I have to admit I
have been the biggest fool in The Glades for
so many years. I thought we still had people
who knew what neighbors were supposed
to be like, but when you have people in
public office who tend to "represent" only a
certain part of the community, then we are


no longer a community. When people in the
community ... er city of people ... stoop so
low as to badmouth efforts by good heart-
ed people and tear down flyers about the
Christmas holidays, it is time for this man to
simply STOP.
I suppose the biggest "bummer" for me
was when I began to wonder why the me-
dia had not been answering my requests for
their involvement in our Christmas events.
They were all so happy and impressed last
year, yet none had even answered my in-
quiries this year. I have always had a good
working relationship with the media, so I fi-
nally got one of them to give me the answer
I did not want to hear. It seems that "some-
one within city government" told them that I
did not speak for Pahokee and that I should
be ignored.
So be it.
In God We Still Trust,
Larry Wright

Glades Day
Continued From Page 2

hopes for a comeback. But they were
stopped on a three-and-out sequence, giv-
ing the Eagles the ball back.
Just four plays later, Jupiter Christian was
back in the game on Rothman's 18-yard
touchdown run to cut the lead to 37-23 with
8:14 to go. Glades Day's next drive ended in
another three-and-out, and with fans hold-
ing their breaths, Jupiter Christian's offense
was suddenly back on the field.
Highlighted by a clutch 22-yard run from
Eagles junior wideout Trey Pendergrass, Ju-
piter Christian scored again this time off
Rothman's 4-yard touchdown throw to Ped-
ersen to cut the lead to 37-30 with 5:20 to
go.
Glades Day recovered an onside kick for
another chance to put the game away, but
Redish lost a key fumble on third down, with
Eagles defensive lineman Taylor Heinz, a 6-7


specimen, recovering it at the Gators 34-yard
line. Four plays later and with just 1:55 to go,
Rothman threw for his second touchdown -
a 28-yard strike to junior wideout Josh Gam-
ble to complete the comeback, sending the
game into overtime.
"You know, I can't think of anything bet-
ter than how both teams played," Rothman
said after the game. "This was a dogfight
to the end. It makes our loss a little better
knowing we put together at the end. I'm sad
it was my last game in an Eagles uniform,
but all things must come to an end."
Not so for Glades Day, the clear cut fa-
vorite now to win this year's Class lB state
championship on Dec. 11.
"We're moving on to the next round and
Jupiter Christian is not," Walker said bluntly.
"Instead of packing it in as coaches, we de-
cided to put it in Taylor's hands and go for
the win. We just felt it was our best oppor-
tunity to win it. Our offensive line did a great
job on the job and the rest is history."
Notes: Glades Day went into halftime
with a 31-9 lead over former two-time Class


lB state champion Jupiter Christian.
Taylor had 205 rushing yards on just nine
carries and four touchdowns in the first
half.
Though finishing 4-for-12 with just 87
yards, two of Redish's throws to Allen were
purely clutch, including a 50-yard pass in
the second half on a third-and-8 play from
Glades Day's 46 yard line to set up Redish's
rushing score.
Glades Day (10-2) will be traveling north
to Sarasota tomorrow evening to play Re-
gion 3 and District 6-1B champion Out-of-
Door Academy in the Class lB state semifi-
nal game.
The kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.,
with the winner going to Orlando next week
for a chance to become the new Class 1B
state champion.
Glades Central 46, American Heri-
tage (Plantation) 20: Raiders senior quar-
terback L.J. Thomas was 18-for-32 passing
on a career-high 514 yards and five touch-
downs to give his team the Region 4-Class
2A title.


Two of Thomas's touchdowns were
thrown to Greg Dent, who just last week de-
commited from the University of Miami and
switched to Florida State University.
Dent (six catches, 230 yards) scored on
touchdown passes of 68 and 92 yards, re-
spectively, in the first half.
Glades Central breakout star Jamie Wil-
son (three catches, 99 yards) also scored
two touchdowns, including a 64-yarder from
Thomas in the first quarter to give the Raid-
ers a 14-0 lead they would never relinquish.
Glades Central (12-0 overall; this week's
Beef 0' Brady's No. 2 overall team in the
state) moves up three spots in the latest Ri-
vals100 national rankings from No. 16 to No.
13.
And the Raiders will be facing off against
Robinson (Tampa) in the Class 2A state
semifinal game at home tomorrow night.
With the kickoff set for 7:30 p.m. at Effie
C. Grear Stadium, the winner of this game
will be going to Orlando on Saturday, Dec.
12 for a chance to become this year's Class
2A state champion.

Going Squirrelly
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Christmas is a wonderfully squirrelly holi-
day. Harvest time is past. Any one with any
sense would find December a prime time to
start rationing supplies, cutting down on ex-
cesses, hunkering in the bunker as the cold
winds start to whip about.
But what do we do? Just as money be-
comes tighter, we go shopping for gifts. We
take time off from work and instead spend
time and money to travel in order to be with
our families and friends. That's squirrelly!
But being squirrelly isn't necessarily bad.
Squirrel antics are centered on a single-
minded purpose. NUTS! And because of
that single-minded purpose, they find joy in
every moment as though it is the only one
that matters.
NUTS could be an acronym for Never
Underestimate The Squirrel. If you have ever
attempted to feed just birds and not squirrels
from your backyard feeder, you know that
no one has yet succeeded in creating a truly
"squirrel-proof" feeder. Products designed
to baffle don't baffle them for long.
Squirrels aren't rocket scientists, but they
use all their squirrelly attributes to get to the
prize. They dig in with their toes. They bal-
ance on precarious perches. They use their
tails like anchors. They use their front paws
like a surgeon's skilled hands. The squirrel's
tactics aren't necessarily perfect, but they
are always persistent.
Squirrels delight in going "out on a limb."
Confident in their God-given gifts, strong
claws for climbing, a long tail for balance,
an eye for perfectly gauging distances, they
are comfortable and unconcerned perched
on the tippy-end of a tiny branch.
Squirrels are very intentional in their
gathering behavior. When searching for
nuts or seeds they will traverse the ground
carefully, scouring every inch, rooting under
every fallen leaf, overturning stones, digging
in the earth. Squirrels don't just pick up one
little nut at a time, they stuff as much as they
can in their cheeks.
If our priority is the kingdom of God, our
intentionality needs to be just as exhaustive.
We are to take our witness and words out
into the community and the world. We need
to be very intentional about our asking and


inviting those who have not heard the good
news, who have given up hope, who have
slipped between the cracks, who are hidden
under heavy weights. There is no place we
cannot find the kernels of God's kingdom.
Being a squirrel means expending a lot of
energy in order to achieve the goal of gath-
ering. We too need to be energized, to be
up and doing what God has called us to do.
Squirrels do not grow weary in well-doing.
They don't take time off to sleep in on Sun-
day morning. Squirrels don't just blow off
meetings or commitments because they are
tired or bored or depressed. Resting when
possible, but always working towards the
final goal, that is "squirreliness."

Getting ready for Christmas -
The race to be run
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
My calendar and the tempo of life tells
me that we're in the "home stretch" now-
Christmas is nearly here and soon another
year will begin. Perhaps in another sense,
we are in the "home stretch" in many things;
maybe the recession is coming to an end,
maybe the things we hear about the ends
of our overseas wars are coming into view,
maybe the job situation is beginning to turn
around at least in some industries. Is the end
in sight; are we in the "home stretch?" Who
can say for sure?
One thing for certain, we are now well un-
derway for Christmas. When thinking about
this "race" I was reminded of the words of
Saint Paul; "Do you not know that in a race,
all the runners run, but only one gets the
prize? (1 Corinthians 9:24)." Everybody is in
the final stages of getting ready for the holi-
days, but who gets the prize? Paul tells the
faithful "Run in such a way as to get the prize
ibidd)." If you're preparing for something -
then get ready for it! Don't leave all of the
details for the last moment, and don't forget
your priorities.
Don't ignore shopping early when things
will still be available, plan your trips and
think about each person on your list of spe-
cial people to remember. Is the gift to be
given something that reflects some thought
and understanding or is it something more
"generic" and says "I don't know you too


well, but want to remember you at this spe-
cial time anyway!" Run the Christmas race
so that you will receive the prize of a very
special and personal holiday for all you are
going to make a part of it. By the way; is
Christmas to be another year-end event or
will getting ready for Christmas really in-
clude what it's all about?
Is home going to reflect the place for
the coming of the King of Kings; or are the
decorations going to reflect the commercial
themes so often heard at this time? Take a
minute and decide. Is there some prepara-
tion that needs to be done before a religious
celebration or is Church attendance just an-
other part of the "Christmas thing?" What
does it mean to run the race for Christmas if
we are to receive the prize? I think it means
that we get ready, each step along the way
is toward the goal, we focus on the real rea-
son for the race and pace ourselves, we start
with the final goal and real reason in mind.
The reason for Christmas is to celebrate
the coming of the Lord among us; the mes-
sages of joy, peace on earth, good will to-
ward others, hope, the gift of faith in its final
form, the promise of the message of salva-
tion is for each and every one of us, all of the
great things that's what Christmas is finally
about. That's why we run the race; that's the
reason for the season!

Reliance Home Health Care and Boy


Scouts join forces to feed seniors


Belle Glade, FL The employees of Reli-
ance Home Health Care, LLC, worked close-
ly with Boy Scout Troop #245 in providing
1500 pounds of much-needed food and
canned goods to 200 financially challenged
senior citizens.
The food bundles were delivered by Reli-
ance Home Health Care employees, Rosana
Castro, who coordinated the efforts and
Marcia McIntosh, RN, to the County Senior
Center on Thursday, November 19th and to
the Pioneer and Diamond Apartment Com-
plexes on Monday, Nov. 23. The recipients
were extremely thankful and surprised by
the gifts because they thought they were at-
tending a regular health screening provided
by the home health agency.
Mike Ligeti, Owner and Administrator of
Reliance Home Health Care was very proud
to involve the company in this project. "We
feel blessed to have been able to work with
the Boy Scouts to provide disadvantaged se-
niors a very nice Thanksgiving." Rosana Cas-
tro, who is also the Leader of Troop #245,
explained why there is such a need in this
area. "Most of these wonderful people don't
have any family nearby, are homebound and
don't have the money to buy a Thanksgiving
dinner. To see the surprise and gratitude on
their faces was a gift to us as well. We can
hardly wait until Christmas!"
About Reliance Home Health Care
Reliance Home Health Care established in 2006,
provides in-home nursing, therapy and aides
to those who are homebound in Palm Beach
County. This agency is very community-oriented
and strives to not only provide services but also

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

Most Insurances Accepted


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The loss of Dade's command and the
poor results of General Clinch's and General
Gaines' engagements convinced Washing-
ton that a new commander was needed for
the Florida Theater. In 1836, General Win-
field Scott was put in charge of all military
forces in Florida.
General Scott immediately implemented
a brilliant battle strategy to route the Semi-
noles from their forbidden haunts around
the Withlacoochee River. Scotts plan was
to break his command into three separate
columns that would converge on an area
called the Withlacoochee Cove. There the
three columns would engage and break the
fighting will of the Seminoles.
He ordered General Clinch to command
one column, the Right Wing, which would
march south from Fort Drane to the With-
lacoochee River. This action would prevent
the Seminoles from escaping north. General
Abraham Eustis was assigned the second
column, the Left Wing. It would march
south from St. Augustine to the St. Johns
River, swing west and cross the Oklawaha
River, before eventually turning north to
the Withlacoochee Cove. Colonel William
Lindsay was assigned command of the third
column, the Center Wing. He marched his
army from Tampa Bay (Fort Brooke), then
followed the west side of the Withlacoochee
River to the Cove.
General Scott was an excellent tactician
and planned his campaign well. He pur-
chased supply wagons and formed wagon
trains to carry rations, ammunition and for-
age for the thousands of soldiers and horses.
The campaign on paper looked invincible,
but like all plans there is usually a weak
point called the 'Achilles Heel," which can
foil even a military genius.
Too late, Napoleon Bonaparte, the self
proclaimed emperor of Europe, discovered
that the terrible Russian winters weren't in-
cluded in his plans for conquering "Mother
Russia." He would lose most of his army
(Europe's greatest army at that time) to the
cold, icy breath of winter. Years later, a confi-


dent General Scott would also find his plans
interrupted by the unforeseen. Swamplands,
palmetto hammocks, sandy wastelands and
too few roads would hamstring his well or-
chestrated and converging army of men and
horses.
In order for General Scott's plan to suc-
ceed, his three columns must move like a
precision clock to reach their predestinated
objectives by March 25, 1836. To meet this
requirement, each army column must stay
in constant touch with the other columns,
so that the commanders could ensure
proper synchronization among the three
converging armies. The unforeseen Florida
swampland would stop General Scott's syn-
chronized clock.
The Right Column under General Clinch
arrived on March 28,1836 after going through
the terrible ordeal of pulling wagons and flat
boats through Florida's unforgiving swamps
and impassable woods. The column was
delayed further when it came under enemy
fire near the Withlacoochee River. The Right
Column finally reached its objective, the
Withlachoochee Cove, on April 1, 1836. By
this time it was low on rations and forced to
march to Fort Brooke.
General Eustis' Center Wing also failed to
reach its objective on time. It was the most
handicapped army column because it had
the greatest distance to travel. The Center
Wing left St. Augustine March 15, 1836,
but due to rough terrain didn't reach the St.
Johns until March 22, 1836. While crossing
the Withlacoochee River, the column came
under constant Seminole fire that inflicted
causalities further delaying the river crossing
four days. The Center Wing finally reached
its objective on April 1, 1836 but was so low
on rations due to the timely setbacks that it
too was forced to break off and march to
Fort Brooke for much needed supplies.
The Left Wing, under the command of
Colonel Lindsay, failed to establish contact
with the other two columns. It was constant-
ly ambushed by Seminoles and at one point
the situation became so desperate that the
soldiers were forced to make a frontal attack
using bayonets. The Seminole attacks set
Colonel Lindsay's column back three days.

He would spend an additional three days
trying to make contact with the other two
columns. Colonel Lindsay finally marched
his troops back to Fort Brooke.
General Scotts' brilliant plan failed to
yield any positive results. His armies had
been forced to battle the Florida wilderness,
where his logistics provided no support, but
served as a burden to the movement of his
troops. Scott admired European tactics and
applied them to The Second Seminole War,
which was a guerrilla war.
In the Florida Wilderness, the Seminoles
were in their element, while General Scott
and his forces were not. Seminoles didn't
fight by rules of war. They attacked in sud-
den violence, hitting weak points in the
American lines and raining havoc on the
troops before vanishing into the green, liq-
uid landscape. General Scott had no defen-
sive or offensive tactics to counter this mode
of attack. Major Leigh Read, a militia officer,
wrote that General Scott had attempted to
apply "the shreds and patches of the obso-
lete system of European tactics where they
could not possibly work."
It was General Scott's low performance
in the Florida Wilderness, along with his
poor public defense measures, which criti-
cized the soldiers and civilians in Florida that
finally relieved him of his Florida command.
General Scott was delicately removed from
command in Florida and politically assigned
command in Alabama. His command in
Florida would eventually be given to Gen-
eral Jesup.

Holmes
Continued From Page 1

noted the scores of youth that came out to
show support for the holiday function.
As he was helping several of the Boys and
Girls club youth members out in the distri-
bution of Thanksgiving dinners, he began to
realize the impact he had on them just by
showing up.
"It gives the kids an opportunity to see
that they could have a chance to make it out
of here [Belle Glade]," Holmes said. "I'm
glad they came out here."
L.J. Thomas, Glades Central's star quar-
terback, was one of four Raiders players
who came away impressed by the presence
of Holmes at an event of this magnitude.
Fellow seniors Travis Bell, Antwon Chi-
solm and Carlton Lewis were also in atten-
dance.
"It's just good Santonio is taking time out
of his busy life to help the community with
giving out food," Thomas said of Holmes.
"It's really tough right now for our commu-
nity, so him coming out is gonna be a real
big boost for all our families out here."
Thomas even gave Holmes some credit
for his upward development in life to this
point.
"Santonio motivates me to do what I do,"
Thomas said. "I need to stay out of trouble
and stay focused so I could help my family
out. I hope I could make it to the NFL one
day and do the same thing Santonio is doing
right now."
Entertainment was provided by the
Glades Central Marching Band, who gave


several energizing step selections to galva-
nize those who attended the early afternoon
function.
And later, participants took advantage
of photo opportunities with Holmes and a
chance to receive an autograph from him.
A slew of photographed copies of Holm-
es's Super Bowl-winning catch was on dis-
play for fans to receive, in addition to some
autographed footballs for those lucky few
who got one.
The autograph signing took place inside
the Boys and Girls club.
"It's good that Santonio hasn't forgotten
where he's come from," said Kenneth Fun-
derburk, who's the Glades Central Raiders
defensive coordinator and athletic director
for the Boys and Girls Club.
"He's blessed and in position to give back
to Belle Glade. Anything and everything is
thoughtful in helping our families, because
we're in a tough recession right now. No
matter how hard it is, love will always win
out and that's what Santonio showed by
coming back out here."
Fred Robinson, one of Holmes's closest
friends and a former classmate of his, was
happy that the Steelers wideout has gotten
positive publicity for this event.
Often compared with Pahokee native
and Arizona Cardinals wideout Anquan Bol-
din for what's he's done for his community
- namely Boldin's annual Q-Fest activities -
Robinson believes this will be a good look
for Holmes and Taylor down the road.
With Boldin being the only current NFL
player from this area to get widespread re-
spect for community service, Robinson,
who at times would get irritated by that fact,
disclosed that in the near future, Holmes


and Taylor will be hosting a 'Fun Day' for the
area.
No concrete details were made available,
though Robinson is optimistic that once it
happens, a big boost will come to this area
like never before.
"Well, basically, this is who Santonio is,"
Robinson said. "He's finally got a break to
show who he is as a person. For those who
know him [Santonio Holmes], they see him
as an honest person and a great guy. But
for those who don't, they thought he hasn't


been doing much for Belle Glade."
Holmes, who said a Christmas toy give-
away will be co-sponsored by himself and
Taylor this month, offered some parting
thoughts on the Thanksgiving turkey give-
away.
"I'm happy I put a lot of smiles on peo-
ples' faces," Holmes said. "Hopefully, it
could grow and more sponsors can lend a
helping hand to make it bigger."

Exchanging Glades Central Raiders and Piitsburgh Steelers helmets, Mike Ger-

Club in Belle Glade.

see their toys before Christmas."
Black Friday (Nov. 27) will have a different
meaning for Ms. Martin now. That's when
she went to buy the boys' Christmas toys at
Wal-Mart, Target and Sports Authority.
Figuring it was the best opportunity to
get Christmas presents since she went to
visit her daughter in the rehab center, Martin
picked up some bats, sponge baseballs and
Transformers toys for the two young ones.
"The boys love Sponge Bob," Martin said.
"They also like Disney cars and golf games
to play with."
Saying she and the family has been feel-
ing 'violated over and over again,' Martin
disclosed that the front passenger side of the
Impala's window was busted open, as the
two alleged suspects took the toys from the
car's back seat.
"It hurts a lot to know that you feel like
everything's been taken away from you,"
Martin said. "Can anything get worse for us?
All we're asking for is the sheriff's office to
catch these two boys and take them off the
street."
Fortunately for Martin and her grandchil-
dren, the few presents in the trunk were not
stolen.
Still, the robbery act, one of several to


reportedly occur in the northeast section of
Belle Glade within the past few weeks, has
put Martin on sheer edge, as several of her
neighbors, she said, have been robbery vic-
tims as well.
"A few men tried to rob my brother's
[Belle Glade commissioner Michael C. Mar-
tin's] house as well," Martin said. "People
don't care anymore; they can take anything
they want from you. The [Palm Beach Coun-
ty] Sheriff's Office needs to focus on our
area more. These robberies need to stop; it's
ridiculous."

Recovery going at steady
pace
Meanwhile, Gilbert has been receiving
care from doctors in her attempt to fully re-
cover from her gunshot wounds sustained
on the night of Sep. 23.
"Casey is doing better than she was be-
fore," Martin said of her daughter's condi-
tion. "She needs at least two more cosmetic
surgeries; one in her jaw area and the other
one in her top facial area."
Concerning the jaw injury, Martin said
that the boyfriend hit her in that area and
when the bullet hit Gilbert, it 'went into a
zigzag and did not leave her head.'
Transferred from the intensive care unit
at Delray Medical Center on Nov. 16 just
