Board to decide on inland port site


Pivotal meeting to be
held today in Riviera
Beach

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES Local leaders will be
closely watching today's events in
Riviera Beach unfold. That's where
the Port of Palm Beach is expected
to make a decision on where to
site a sprawling inland port com-
plex that promises to generate
thousands of much-needed jobs.
And the Port of Palm Beach, in


many respects, will decide today
exactly what the Glades area's fu-
ture is going to look like.
For the past few years, the cities
of Belle Glade, Pahokee and South
Bay have been collectively plan-
ning for an inland port to be built
on the grounds of Okeelanta Cor-
poration, which is about 10 miles
south of South Bay.
Now, they will be vying for the
coveted project, along with sites in
Hendry County and Martin Coun-
ty.
During today's inland port
meeting in Riviera Beach, all eyes
will be on that organization's


members.
Which county will the Port
choose? That is the unanswered
question.
With commissioners from the
cities of Belle Glade, Pahokee and
South Bay not sure of what the
Port will decide, they took their
cases to the Governor's Office in
Tallahassee last week.
In a pivotal meeting held on
Dec. 9, local leaders made it a
point to let state officials know
about the myriad of economic
concerns in the Glades.
Glades leaders said they could
not secure a verbal commitment


from the state to endorse the
South Bay site.
Nevertheless, Belle Glade May-
or Steve Wilson said "it was a very
successful trip to Tallahassee."
"We wanted to make sure they
[the state officials] understand the
need to have the inland port in
Palm Beach County," Wilson said.
"The Governor's staff was un-
able to make a commitment to
us, but it was clear that we sent a
message to them."

Kelvin Taylor and
Joshua Thornton
emerge as heroes
in win over Warner
Christian

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
ORLANDO Triumph, glory
and redemption.
The above applications fit the
Glades Day Gators, who won
the Class 1B state championship
last Friday (Dec. 11) over Warner
Christian, 27-20, in an overtime
thriller.
Kelvin Taylor scored all four of
Glades Day's touchdowns in this
contest, which will go down as
a record-setting performance for
him.
Taylor, a 16-year- old freshman,
registered a FHSAA state finals-


record 42 carries for 213 yards.
And he scored the state-cham-
pionship winner, a 3-yard run to
break a 20-20 tie in overtime.
But that wasn't secure until
Joshua 'J.T.' Thornton, the area's
breakthrough player of the year,
caught an interception thrown by
Warner Christian's Shelton Willis
to seal the Class lB title.
The play, likely to be forever
etched in Glades Day lore, came
on a second-and-goal play from
Glades Day's 20-yard line.
After Glades Day's Tanner
Shields makes a huge sack on
Willis a 10-yard loss on first-and-
goal for Warner Christian Thorn-
ton, who had been picked on
most of the game, stepped in at
the 6-yard line, making the catch
of his life.

Glades Central stunned in Class 2A state title game


Raiders offense shut down
in second half; Belle Glade
loses title game

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
ORLANDO- Jessie Hester, the Glades Cen-
tral Raiders head coach, made a very telling
analysis on his quarterback, L.J. Thomas.
"As L.J. Thomas goes, so does the team,"
he said earlier this season.
In his final game with the Raiders, Thom-
as was anything but himself.
To put that into context, there wasn't
much of a rhythm between Thomas and his
wide receivers.
And the offense, as a whole, failed to ex-
ecute on key plays for much of this year's
Class 2A state championship game against
the Cocoa Tigers.
It played a big role in how the Raiders,
who came into this game as the No. 13 team
overall in the Rivals100 national rankings,
lost the state championship to Cocoa, 27-
13.
Thomas (20-for-39 passing, 294 yards, 1
TD, 2 INT) was sacked six times by Cocoa's
tenacious defense, which explains a lot in
how he was rattled for much of the game.
"Cocoa kept the pressure on us all night
long," Thomas said of Cocoa's defense.
"They ran a three-man front and their line-
backers just flew to me. They just simply ex-

Glades Central's Antwon Chisolm scored the first of his two touchdowns in the
Class 2A state title game, an 8-yard run that put the Raiders up 6-0 in the first
quarter.


ecuted and we had some mental mistakes,
which cost us in the end."
Aside from two touchdowns by Raiders
senior running back Antwon Chisolm an
8-yard touchdown run in the first quarter,
followed by a 16-yard touchdown catch


from Thomas with 9:17 left in the second -
Glades Central's offense was basically shut
down the rest of the way.
Down 13-3 after Chisolm's second touch-
down, Cocoa's offense went to work and
used their game plan to near perfection.


Only four passes were thrown by Cocoa
quarterback Matthew Younger all comple-
tions.
But the Tigers didn't need to throw much;
they just used the running of Chevelle Buie
to pull them through, as he registered 27 car-
ries for 215 yards and two touchdowns.
It took just two plays for Cocoa to pull
within three, as Buie ran right through
Glades Central's defense for a 62-yard touch-
down with 8:24 left in the first half.
When Glades Central got the ball back,
it proved to be a downright disastrous drive
for them, as Thomas threw a very direct in-
terception to Cocoa defensive back Antonio
Wallace.
The first down play, from Glades Central's
own 20 yard line, ended in Wallace's 28-yard
interception return for a touchdown, which
gave Cocoa a 17-13 lead.
In Glades Central's opportunity at regain-
ing the lead, the next offensive series ended
just as badly, with Thomas throwing his sec-
ond pick of the game.
Only this time it was an end-zone inter-
ception to Cocoa's Rick Rivers with 3:42 left
in the half.
The second half was all Cocoa, especially
in the third quarter.
This is where Cocoa's game plan on of-
fense was at its finest, as it used clock con-
trol and a grind-it-out set of runs from Buie
and Adrian Lee to hold on to the ball for
more than nine minutes in the third.

Continued From Page 2
Ultimately, Glades Central's offense was
put on ice, as they were only on the field for
three possessions in the second half two of
which were in the fourth quarter.
Buie's second touchdown, a 37-yard run
with 4:49 left in the game, effectively sealed
Cocoa's state championship win.
"Cocoa deserved to win," said Glades
Central linebacker Jamorris Rowley, who
registered six tackles one for a loss in the
game.
"They were just a better team tonight,"
Rowley said of the Saturday, Dec. 12 night
game. "Our defense had so many opportuni-
ties to stop them, but we just didn't execute.
We were clicking at first, but we got down
when they [Cocoa] scored on L.J.'s first in-
terception. We never recovered from that."
Cocoa, which won its second consecutive
state title they won last year's Class 3A state
championship in a 7-6 overtime win over


Godby (Tallahassee) came into this game
as a two-touchdown underdog in some me-
dia circles, three or more in others.
"We like to be underdogs," Younger said
of Cocoa. "We like it when it's us against
the world. I always thought we were going
to win this game. Glades Central's receivers
had some great hands, speed and catches,
but our defense came out prepared for
them."
Hester on Glades Central's loss to Co-
coa:
"I'm a little taken aback by the perfor-
mance," he said. "It just didn't happen for us
in all phases of the game. We weren't able
to do anything on a consistent basis and we
couldn't even stop the run; It was just ugly
out there."
Notes: Cocoa, which came into the
game as the Beef O' Brady's No. 7 team,
finished their season with an undefeated re-
cord at 14-0.
Glades Central, the state's Beef O' Bra-
dy's No. 2 team before this game, finished
the season with a 13-1 overall record.

Glades Central Raiders fans, in the thousands, came out in full force to show

Dealing with summer sickness and abandoned forts


Mosquito borne illnesses
and disease deal deadly
blow to Florida pioneers
By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
A calm before the storm prevailed as
weary soldiers clothed themselves in a
dark cloak of smoke that billowed from the
campfires pine logs.
In the surrounding twilight, a distant hum
quickly grew to a high pitch buzz as clouds
of mosquitoes descended upon the smoke
shrouded soldiers with a vengeance.
"Ole" timers used to say that mosquitoes
were once so numerous you could swing a
quart jar in the air and capture a gallon.
As an ole Glades boy, I can relate to such
folklore.


I remember home window screens
completely covered in a solid, gray mass of
squirming mosquitoes, each trying to make
an unlawful entry.
Some always found a way into our home
and serenaded us with their female charms
for the rest of the night.
The deadliest threat to American soldiers
during the Second Seminole War was the
"summer sickness," a term the military used
to define the summer illnesses and deaths
that plagued the soldiers in Florida.
Much of this sickness was related to the
pesky, female mosquitoes, which some-
times carried the malaria infection.
The summer sickness brought so much
illness to garrisoned troops that many of the
forts were abandoned in the summer time.
The deaths incurred by the summer sick-
ness and other diseases, far outweighed
Seminole bullets.


WEIHMfTLrSS


The known deaths during the Second
Seminole Indian War (volunteer militia
deaths not included) were 1,466 Army and
69 Navy. Army and Navy casualties by Semi-
nole bullets were 328. The remaining 1, 207
casualties were from summer sickness and
other causes.
It is time to "Take a Walk in the Past" and
read about abandoned forts and Governor
Call's ever changing campaign.
Fort King was abandoned by the military
in 1836 because malaria and other diseases
had made so many soldiers unfit for duty.
Fort Drane, located 25 miles to the north-
east of Fort King, was also reeling from the
scourge of summer sickness.
The fort was occupied by 307 soldiers,
and, of those, only 186 were fit for duty. Due
to the critical situation, the fort's doctor re-
quested that Fort Drane be evacuated until
the summer sickness had passed.


Governor Call approved the request and
ordered the fort evacuated.
The evacuation of Fort Drane was tem-
porarily postponed when twenty two wag-
ons of stores, escorted by 62 men, left Fort
Drane for Fort Defiance and was attacked.
Osceola, with a reported 150 to 200 Semi-
noles, ambushed the 500 yard long column
of men and wagons, as the column neared
Fort Defiance.
The soldiers were outnumbered and
hard pressed by the Seminoles. The column
was saved when soldiers from nearby Fort
Defiance intervened and helped beat off the
Seminole attack.
Fort Drane was evacuated on Aug. 7,
1836. The Seminoles later burnt the fort to
the ground.

History
Continued From Page 5

Drane left much of Florida's interior unpro-
tected.
The only remaining safe havens in Flor-
ida's interior for white settlers were Newn-
ansville, Garey's Ferry, and Micanopy. White
settlers, who had once felt safe under the
Army fort's protectorate umbrellas, now
left their remote farms to live in the safe ha-
vens.
The overcrowded havens, in turn, be-
came breeding depots for diseases and the
ultimate stalker of man, death.
Measles and diarrhea killed 52 civilians at
Garey's Ferry, while other havens fared no
better as the summer sickness continued
unabated.
On July 24, 1836, Lieutenant Colonel
Crane took charge of northeastern Florida.
The boundaries of his command extend-
ed south to Micanopy, where the stockade,
Fort Defiance was located.
The summer sickness had the fort under
a deadly siege, so on Aug. 15, 1836, Colonel
Crane ordered Major Pierce to evacuate the
fort.
Major Pierce left St. Augustine with 27
wagons and 125 men to close out Fort Defi-
ance and carry the stores and sick back to
St. Augustine.
Pierce stopped over at Micanopy and
learned that Fort Defiance had 147 soldiers
on the sick list.
He also received information that the wily
Seminoles had occupied the area around the
nearby abandoned Fort Drane.
Major Pierce couldn't resist the opportu-
nity to launch a surprise attack on the Semi-
noles.
He took many of the draft horses used for
pulling the wagons and 110 foot soldiers, to
create a make shift Calvary.
It was said that many of the inexperi-
enced men charged the surprised Seminoles
at Fort Drane, while hanging on for dear life
to the manes of the horses.
A short skirmish was fought, until the
Seminoles gathered their wits and took a
stand in an adjoining hammock.
There, the surprised Seminoles regrouped


and started returning heavy fire. Major Pierce
not knowing the enemy's strength withdrew
back to Micanopy.
His losses were one dead and sixteen
wounded.
On Aug. 24, 1836, Major Pierce evacuated
Fort. Defiance. The evacuation of Fort Defi-
ance now left the territories west of the St.
Johns River and south of Newnanville (close
to Alachua) abandoned to the Seminoles.
Governor Call wasn't aware that Colonel
Crane had ordered Major Pierce to evacuate
Fort Defiance and was furious when word
reached him that the fort had been aban-
doned.
There were now three abandoned forts
in the Florida wilderness.
The abandoned forts sent a message of
despair to the local settlers, but a ray of hope
to the Seminoles, who interpreted the aban-
doned forts as a sign of victory.
The abandoned forts strengthened the
Seminoles resolve and their hopes that
the Americans were becoming weary and
would withdraw, leaving the Seminoles to
live unmolested
Fort King had once been the original stag-
ing point in Governor Call's plans to invade
the Seminole's stronghold at Withlacoochee
Cove, but like a rubber ball, his plans had
bounced from pillar to post as each fort was
abandoned.
Fort King, Fort Drane and Fort Defiance
fell to the summer sickness, leaving a frus-
trated Governor Call with no forts and a
need for new plans.
I hope you have enjoyed this story. Please
contact the Clewiston Museum if you have
questions, artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale of
a Tale" that you would like to share.
The museum provides an interesting fos-
sil display of prehistoric animals that once
roamed the Glades thousands of years ago
and artifacts that reflect the heritage of
Clewiston.
Its theater has a 65-seat capacity and
presents movies on the history of Clewis-
ton, sugar cane harvesting, and the orange
industry.

tour for only $2.00 per person.
The Museum's hours are Monday through
Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Thanks everyone for being here for me
Why sad face and tears brought here
Don't you know the Lord has set me free?
A lot of things I left undone
But the Lord said to come
A special place He brought me to
And here Ill wait for you
He looked down from Heaven's Gate
And Lo Behold, it was too late
He said Son you have a place
Full of love, happiness and grace
Your love ones, I know will grieve
But your place is here with me
A song to sing a praise to say
But I promise you that some day
They will come thru Heaven's door
And their grieve will be no more
So Child of Mine, We welcome Thee
To remain in Heaven far eternity
Poem written by Grandmother Esther Ramos
Erik,
There is not a moment that goes by that I don't
think of you. I still struggle to try and understand
why you had to leave us. But know that you will
always live in our hearts and mind. We love you
and miss you terribly.
Love Mom, Abuela, Abuelo, Vanessa and Jessica

Small Towns
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
In a country where bigger is usually con-
sidered better, more than 100,000 small town
residents have voted to have theirs crowned
the "Coolest Small Town in America."
The poll was conducted by Budget Travel
magazine.
The editor shared the magazine was look-
ing for Main Street, U.S.A. -- places where
you find real people, excited to be part of
their communities.
As for what makes a town "cool," is
very subjective, but there is one really good
marker: When people leave for the big city,
they realize they've made a mistake and
come back home
Small towns are just a little bit different.
The nice part about living in a small town
is that when you don't know what you're
doing, someone else does.
As someone has written, "You know you
live in a small town when
1) You can name everyone you gradu-
ated with.
2) You know what 4-H means.
3) You went to parties at a pasture, barn,
gravel pit, or in the middle of a dirt road. On
Monday you could always tell who was at
the party because of the scratches on their
legs from running through the woods when
the party was busted.
4) You used to "drag" Main.
5) You said the "F" word and your par-
ents knew within the hour.
6) You give directions by references rath-
er than street names. Turn by the old Kelly
house, go two blocks to Anderson's, and it's
four houses left of the track field.
7) You could never buy cigarettes be-
cause all the store clerks knew how old you
were (and if you were old enough, they'd
tell your parents anyhow).
8) Your teachers called you by your older
siblings' names.
9) Your teachers remembered when they
taught your parents.
10) Someone asks you how you feel, and
actually listens to what you say.
Jesus was born in a small town.
Each year we sing Phillip Brooks' beauti-
ful hymn, "0 little town of Bethlehem, how


still we see thee lie. Above thy deep and
dreamless sleep, the silent stars go by. Yet in
thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light.
The hopes and fears of all the years are met
in thee tonight."
Bethlehem today is a city of approximate-
ly 50,000 people, but when Jesus was born it
was a tiny village.
The message of Christmas would be
just as powerful if Christ had been born in
a great metropolis, but somehow this tiny
village seems to capture the essence of the
Christ event.
Bethlehem reminds us that God can use
ordinary people and ordinary places in an
extraordinary way.
God can use us.

Just suppose!
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Suppose a man arrived in our commu-
nity and began preaching.
Suppose He had not been officially called
to the pulpit of the recognized and respect-
able churches of the area, but preached any-
way.
Suppose, further, that it was a known fact
that this person worked 15 or more years at
manual labor before getting the notion to
preach.
Now suppose large crowds began,
strangely, to attend his very informal preach-
ing service.
Suppose this man preached in a very
inliterary way, talked about the daily work,
flowers, fishing --things like that--as much as
Bible.
Suppose He were seen often in bars and
taverns, talking friendly with folk there. Sup-
pose 2 or 3 very unsavory political "hangers
on" should take up with Him and piously an-
nounce that they were "reformed."
Even heard by grapevine that He was
very sympathetic with prostitutes and some
of them almost seemed to worship Him in
public!
Suppose that the most intelligent, best
educated leaders in our community con-
demned this fellow as a very irreligious and
dangerous demagogue.
Suppose one morning you read in the
papers that Government agents had appre-


ended Him as a subversive, brought Him
to trial on a charge of treason.
Suppose further, that the religious leaders
testified against Him at His trial.
AND NONE OF HIS many so-called
friends even raised a whisper in his defense.
Suppose even His alleged lieutenants and
close associates were not willing to be seen
with Him or admit they even knew Him.
And so He is condemned to death and
is executed amid almost universal acclaim.
What would you think of such an individual.
From an earthly and rather analytical, secu-
lar viewpoint, this might be the story of Je-
sus, prior to His resurrection.
But this is the stone that Daniel saw cut
out of the mountain and came rolling down
and tearing down the kingdoms of this
world.
He is indeed King of Kings and Lord of
Lords and He shall reign forever and ever.
Amen!

Advent: Old testament style
and a reason to hope for
today
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When I was in seminary, I worked on
weekends in a Church not too far from Lake
Michigan.
The winters were cold and the wind off
of the lake added to the chilly nights waiting
for the train to take me back to school.
Many times the train was late.
People would leave the station for their
homes and give up, or talk about driving to
their destinations rather than waiting on the
cold platform.
The railroad was reliable even if the train
was delayed.
I knew if I waited, the train would come
- and it always did!
Up in the distance, there would be faint
spot of light, then a distinct headlight that
made the night a bit warmer even if the tem-
perature hadn't changed.
The train would always come, even if we
couldn't rely on the schedule. Sometimes
there would have been an accident or the
conductor would tell us about having to


have the tracks plowed; but it was always
on the way.
I thought about those train trips and times
spent waiting.
Traffic accidents can block a highway,
people will react with frustration, or turn
around or get onto a side road or wait.
The road will eventually be cleared and
the planned route will be fulfilled.
I ran out of funds while in college; my de-
gree was delayed.
It meant that I would have to work and
then go back to school, but graduation
would come.
It did.
I've come to reflect that most things will
happen if we stick with them; and are pa-
tient.
It's a lesson that is easier in hindsight than
foresight; but a lesson worth remembering.
This is the season of Advent in the Church
calendar year for many Christians. It is a time
of "getting ready" for Christmas there are
a few days left now and making the best
use of the time we know will be coming
very soon.
Unlike those moments of waiting with-
out knowing when the moment will arrive;
we now live on the other side of the First
Coming of the Lord.
The lessons of the Old Testament in Isa-
iah, the message of John the Baptist, the pre-
lude to the Christmas Story are all about a
people who lived in waiting.
They believed that the blessings of God
sending His Son were on the way; it was
about being patient and faithful in the mean-
time.
Not knowing in one sense, yes, but
knowing it would come to pass and the
world would be a better place because of
His coming; the faithful lived for a long time
in an "advent."
Now, we who are blessed by knowing
the Lord has come have a few days to get
ready to celebrate.
It is a different Advent the time has
been worth the wait and the faith has been
rewarded.
"Joy to the World, the Lord has come..."
is the message; our message when we wait
in hope and use the time to be faithful.

Useful fire safety tips for this holiday season


By Judy Comoletti
For most of us, the holidays represent a
treasured time of year, and we work hard
to make it special for the people we care
about most. We decorate our homes with
great thought and detail, and entertain
friends and family by hosting parties and
cooking elaborate meals and treats. But
as we do these things, fire safety is rarely
a thought. It may seem that the holidays
and home fires are two completely differ-
ent topics, but they're not; national statistics
show that the holiday season turns sorrow-
ful, and sometimes even fatal for so many
households each year as the result of home
fires. Cooking, Christmas trees, candles and
holiday lights all key parts of the holiday
season are significant causes of fires that
occur this time of year.
While it's quite a somber perspective on
the holiday season, the good news is that it
doesn't have to be this way. With just one
or two minor changes, often taking a few
minutes, or even seconds, of time, the holi-
days can stay festive and safe for everybody.
It's important for people to take basic but
vital fire safety precautions as they plan and
prepare for the upcoming holiday season.
These simple steps can greatly reduce the
risk of fire and its potentially devastating im-
pact on homes and families:
Cooking: NFPA statistics show that unat-

rate, combined with a significant increase
in crime, "it's very clear the inland port is
needed here," said South Bay Mayor Shirley
Walker-Turner.
She added that "there are no real environ-
mental issues" with regard to the Okeelanta
site. But it was just over a year ago in a Palm
Beach County meeting that environmental-
ist groups such as the Audubon Society of
Florida and the Sierra Club voiced their op-
position to the port being sited in South Bay.
More recently, environmental groups have
held public demonstrations in West Palm


tended cooking is the leading cause of U.S.
home fires and home fire injuries. Stay in
the kitchen while you're frying, grilling or
broiling food. Most cooking fires involve the
stovetop, so keep anything that can catch
fire away from it, and turn off the stove
when you leave the kitchen, even if it's for
a short period of time. If you're simmering,
boiling, baking or roasting food, check it
regularly and use a timer to remind you that
you're cooking. Create a "kid-free zone" of
at least three feet around the stove and ar-
eas where hot food and drinks are prepared
or carried.
Candles: Candles are widely used
throughout the holidays, and December
is the peak month for home candle fires.
More than half of all candle fires start be-
cause the candle was too close to things
that could catch fire. Consider using flame-
less candles, which look and smell like real
candles. However, if you do use traditional
candles, keep them at least 12 inches away
from anything that can burn, and remem-
ber to blow them out when you leave the
room or go to bed. Use candle holders that
are sturdy, won't tip over and are placed on
uncluttered surfaces. Avoid using candles in
the bedroom where two of five U.S. candle
fires begin or other areas where people may
fall asleep. Lastly, never leave a child alone
in a room with a burning candle.


Beach urging the port to delay plans until
more research is done, and taking the Okee-
lanta site out of the running completely.
When reminded of that county meeting,
Mayor Walker-Turner said that Florida Crys-
tals, who owns the land in question at the
Okeelanta site, recently was 'told' by the Port
otherwise after presenting some key infor-
mation to them in a past meeting, but did
not say what that information was.
"I'm not sure whether or not politics are
involved here," Walker-Turner said. "But one
thing I know for sure, there's no reason why
the inland port should not come to Palm
Beach County. We need jobs very badly in
the Glades."
The South Bay Mayor continued to make


Christmas trees: U.S. fire departments
annually respond to 250 structure fires
caused by Christmas trees. Nearly half of
them are caused by electrical problems,
and one in four resulted from a heat source
that's too close to the tree. Here are some
guidelines for picking, placing and lighting
a tree:
If you have an artificial tree, be sure it's
labeled, certified or identified by the manu-
facturer as fire-retardant.
If you choose a fresh tree, make sure the
green needles don't fall off when touched;
before placing it in the stand, cut 1-2 inches
from the base of the trunk. Add water to the
tree stand, and be sure to water it daily.
Make sure your tree is at least three feet
away from any heat source, like fireplaces,
space heaters, radiators, candles and heat
vents or lights.
Make sure the tree is not blocking an
exit.
Use lights that have the label of an inde-
pendent testing laboratory, and make sure
you know whether they are designed for
indoor or outdoor use.
Replace any string of lights with worn or
broken cords, or loose bulb connections.
Connect no more than three strands of
mini-string sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs
for screw-in bulbs.

"We just want to make our communi-
ties financially viable," she said, noting that
many jobs have been eliminated since the
area's sugar mills have become more auto-
mated.
"We're asking for an opportunity to put
people to work; we don't want handouts,"
Walker-Turner continued. "We want livable
wages and we want our children to work
in our communities when they grow up. If
we get the port, then we will see a decrease
in crime and more businesses coming in.
It would be a win-win situation for every-
body."
South Bay Commissioner John Wilson


tree.
Always turn off Christmas tree lights be-
fore leaving the home or going to bed.
After Christmas, get rid of the tree. Dried-
out trees are a fire hazard and should not be
left in the home or garage, or placed out-
side the home.
Think green. Check to see if your com-
munity has a Christmas tree recycling pro-
gram.
Bring outdoor electrical lights inside after
the holidays to prevent hazards and make
them last longer.
The holidays are a truly special time of
year. Following these fire safety precau-
tions and measures will ensure it remains
one. For more tips, advice and information
about holiday fire safety, please visit http://

said he has been "praying a lot" over the
course of the past few days on this matter.
Meanwhile, the Belle Glade mayor tries
his best to keep things in perspective, as
the Port ultimately has three sites to choose
from.
"We're hoping the Port will make the
right decision to have it in Palm Beach Coun-
ty," Wilson said. "We just have to see what
happens."
What if the Port doesn't select the Glades
area site?
"If they don't pick us, then we'll just have
to continue to look for other opportunities in
the future," Mayor Walker-Turner said.

Gators
Continued From Page 1

ceiver Clinton Johnson, of Thornton's play.
"They [Warner Christian] didn't throw
to my side the whole game and kept con-
necting with their main receivers [Rashad
Greene and Sharod Williams] all game.
They were doing their best to try and pick
J.T. apart the whole game. J.T. adjusted to
that very well."
Johnson, who played in his final high
school game with the Gators, remembers
where he was at when Thornton's play oc-
curred.
"As the play was going on, I saw the
[Warner Christian] quarterback looking for
his main receiver and I just saw him throw
it, with J.T. catching it."
Thornton, who came into this season as
a relatively unproven cornerback, finished
the season with four interceptions all in the
Class 1B state playoffs.
"Almost every pass was to his side,"
Johnson said of Thornton, a junior. "Many
schools tried to pick on J.T., but he has really
stepped up his game to prove to everyone
that he can be a lockdown corner. I think he,
along with many of the underclassmen, will
have outstanding senior years next season."
As for Taylor?
"Bay-Bay [Kelvin Taylor] is just gifted,"
Johnson said of the freshman phenom, who
finished the season with a whopping 51
touchdowns overall.
"Through all the years of playing the
game and being around, I don't think I've


seen a [running] back like him. I think,
hands down, he is the best in the state. He
has done a lot for the team and will only
continue to get better, but I don't think he
would have been able to accomplish what
he has done without our offensive line."
Down 7-0 going into halftime, Taylor al-
most single-handedly led Glades Day to its
only score of the first half, as he rushed for
34 of the Gators' 37 yards on their half-end-
ing touchdown drive.
It took all of 2:56 to pull Glades Day with-
in one, 7-6 at the half.
Taylor's second score, a 5-yard run, came
toward the end of the third to give Glades
Day a 12-7 lead, its first of the game.
But Warner Christian came right back as
Willis (10-for-24 passing, 202 yards, 2 TD, 2
INT) threw a 22-yard touchdown strike to
Williams (two catches, 85 yards, 2 TD) to
put their team back out front, 13-12, with
9:34 left in regulation.
Taylor answered once again, as he reg-
istered nine carries for 44 yards on Glades
Day's next scoring drive, capped by a 1-yard
touchdown run to put the Gators up 20-13
with 3:34 left.
Then the hook-and-lateral came from
Warner Christian, which effectively sent the
game into overtime.
With just over two minutes left, War-
ner Christian faced a do-or-die situation on
fourth down from their own 33 yard line.
After Willis completes a 6-yard pass to
Greene (seven catches, 111 yards), Greene
then tosses the ball back to Willis, who lobs
a 61-yard touchdown pass to Williams to tie
the game up at 20 apiece.
And then there was overtime, which


came out in Glades Day's favor.
"Everyone played for each other, which
I think really helped us get a state title this
year," Johnson said of his team, who's
chemistry was very apparent since the first
day of spring practice way back in May.
What about the offensive line?
"They just worked hard all year long from
day one," Johnson said of the special group.
"They were all a bunch of unselfish guys
who wanted to win. So they put all they had
in them to do it and nobody deserves more
credit then them. They really made the team
this year."
And for that, Glades Day has won its sixth
state championship, its first since 2006.
Notes: Both Glades Day and Warner
Christian finished their seasons with a 12-2
record.
Glades Day's sixth state title ties it with
fellow Muck team Pahokee and Glades Cen-
tral, as the three teams have now combined
for a staggering 18 state championships be-
tween them.
The three Muck team are tied for second
in FHSAA history with state title wins, behind
Bolles (Jacksonville), who won its record-
extending 10th championship on last Satur-
day (Dec. 12) in the Class 2B title game.
For play-by-play analysis of the Class 1B
title game, and much more, you could visit
