Port of Palm Beach's inland port criticized


Threat of lawsuits
may stall project

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
As the various elected mem-
bers of the Port of Palm Beach
weighed their choices for a site
which will house a planned in-
land port, stakeholders in Western
Palm Beach, Hendry, and St. Lucie
counties hoped to land the cov-
eted decision.
Despite concerns from nearly


every corner of the political and
governmental spectrum, as well
as demonstrations by environ-
mental groups, the port selected
a site near South Bay, owned by
Florida Crystals, as the location for
the development.
"We are very pleased by the
Port of Palm Beach Commission-
ers' selection of Florida Crystals
as their partner in the pursuit of
an Inland Logistics Center at the
Okeelanta site," said Gaston Can-
tens, Vice President of Florida
Crystals.
But not everyone feels the


same way.
Leading up to the vote, and in
the days that followed it, represen-
tatives of the failed bids and envi-
ronmental groups have publicly
opposed the choice, arguing that
the vote means very little in light
of issues raised by the state, the
partnering ports, and the idea that
the project concept is pinned on
future commercial ventures that
may never materialize.
At issue is a proposed 3,500
project to site a distribution cen-
ter to connect commercial activity
through rails and access to U.S. 27,

relying on the support of ports in
Palm Beach, Broward and Miami.
Glades residents and leaders
have looked toward the project as
the next great economic engine
-- especially in light of the planned
sale of U.S. Sugar's farming prop-
erties to the state.
Others have said there are many
questions that must be answered
before any concerted work on the
inland port center can begin.
Prior to the vote last Thurs-
day, the state had asked the Port

'Friends, Politics and


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Florida Governor Call, a critic of Winfield
Scott's command in Florida, had written his
dear ole friend, Andrew Jackson, the Presi-
dent of the United States, a bold letter de-
scribing how he could bring closure to the
Second Seminole Indian War.
Call had long been a loyal and sympa-
thetic acquaintance of Andrew Jackson, so
how could the president refuse such a fine
friend?
The Governor was placed in command
of the Florida Theater and given the presi-
dent's blessings to bring the Seminole War
to an end.
However, it wasn't long before Governor
Call's campaign began to unravel as well as
his future prospects in the White House.
It soon became apparent that Governor
Call's plans, like those of the former General
Winfield Scott, worked tactically on paper,
but never quite captured the full essence of
the Florida Wilderness.
Impregnable swamplands, diseases, and
a multitude of other undermining factors lit-
erally shredded the Governor's plans.
Initially, Fort King was to be the pivot
point to launch an attack on the Seminole
Nations stronghold that was located at With-
lahoochee Cove.
The campaign plan changed in the sum-
mer of 1836, when the summer sickness
slithered in like a great serpent, squeezing
the life out of Fort King, Fort Drane and Fort
Defiance.
The abandonment of these three forts
and their strategic locations ended the Gov-
ernor's bold plan.
The old saying, "When at first you don't
succeed, then try again" became Governor
Call's new strategy.
Governor Call birthed a new plan that
required the employment of steamboats, to
deliver supplies to four key staging points.
The military would launch its campaign
from three staging points: Tampa, Volusia
and Suwannee Old Town. Later, a fourth
depot base was created along the Withla-
coochee River and used as a staging point.
A fever, ridden Governor Call launched
his late campaign on Sept. 18, 1836.
Several skirmishes took place as troops
started moving from their staging points to-
ward the Withlacoochee Cove.
Colonel John Warren's men fought the
Seminoles west of Gainesville in a short
battle, while friendly Creeks, lead by Colonel
Lane, engaged the Seminoles further north.
On Sept. 29, 1836 Governor's Call's main
column crossed the Suwannee River and
prepared to march against the Seminole's
homeland.
His large main column was divided into
two smaller columns: one column traveled
on barges towed by a steamboat up the
Withlochoochee River, to the fourth desig-
nated depot site.
The second column, provisioned with
ten days of rations, hurriedly set out for Fort
Drane, where it would launch a frontal as-
sault.
The second column of soldiers arrived
at Fort Drane and was greeted by the burnt,
charred fort, void of any Seminole activity.


The alert Seminoles had simply melted into
the liquid green landscape without a trace.
The Seminoles were gone, but a new
threat arose from the pit of each weary sol-
dier's stomach, a low rumbling sound that
announced hunger and possibly famine.
The soldiers had used most of their ten
day rations and now bore the insatiable
pains of hunger that hounded both the sol-
diers and horses. Luckily, a relief column,
commanded by Major Pierce, arrived in a
timely manner with additional troops and
supplies for two days.
With new troops and supplies, Governor
Call had a combined force of 1,350 men to
launch an attack on the Seminole Nation's
heartland. Operating with only limited sup-
plies, he immediately set out for the Semi-
nole stronghold.
A long the way, the force encountered a
small group of Seminoles as it neared the
Withlachoochee River, killing fourteen in
a brief skirmish. The successful skirmish
turned out to be the only success in the
campaign.
When the second column reached the
river, it received relentless fire from the Sem-
inoles that lay hidden on the river's opposite
bank.
The fierce fire kept the soldiers at bay and
prevented them from crossing the river. The
invasive army had been stopped by the Sem-
inoles and was now immobile, while its sup-
plies for two days continued to diminish.
The situation was critical, so Governor
Call called a council of war with his officers
to decide on the next move.
The army had two choices. Either return
to Fort Drane or follow the river to the desig-
nated supply depot that the first column was
to set up. The general census was to find the
cached supplies, rather than return back to
Fort Drane.
The march to find the stowed supplies
became agonizing for men and beast alike,
as supplies dwindled away.
The arduous march started killing the
famished horses, forcing the already weak-
ened cavalry soldiers to burn the saddles of
their expired steeds, rather than carry them.
It is estimated that 600 horses died during
this campaign.
The designated depot of stowed sup-
plies was never found, forcing a disgruntle
column of hungry men to retrace their steps
all the way back to Fort Drane. The depot
was never found because the steamboat
Izard, while towing the barges of men and
supplies to the intended depot location, was
caught on a sandbar and destroyed.
The troops in the barges were forced to
convey the supplies overland and delayed by
the rough terrain. They arrived at the desig-
nated site five days after Governor Call's col-
umn had marched back to Fort Drane.
The starving second column remained at
Fort Drane, until it was supplied by friendly
Creek Indian warriors, who arrived October
19, 1836. The trip must have been unpleas-
ant for their commander, Colonel Lane,
because that same day, he killed himself by
plunging his sword into his right eye, then
into the brain.
The supplies and additional troops set
Governor Call to planning again on how to
bring the Seminole War to an end. Some of-


Good Bye'
ficers weren't as optimistic as Governor Call
about a new campaign, since his previous
campaign had failed to bear fruit. Governor
Call's long time friend, President Andrew
Jackson, was enlightened by some disgrun-
tle offers concerning the failure of Governor
Call's bold plan. President Jackson became
somewhat perturbed when told that Gover-
nor Call had marched troops to the Semi-
nole heartland and then turned back.
Andrew Jackson, being a man of action
(old Hickory), saw the failed campaign as
the fault of Governor Call, whom he now
viewed as a unqualified commander. Presi-
dent Jackson was so unhappy with Gover-
nor Call's performance that Secretary of War
Butler, wrote Governor Call a harsh letter, re-
lieving Florida Governor Call of command.
Governor Call was informed that a new
commander had been assigned to the Flori-
da Theater, his name was General Jesup.

Tobacco



Free

By Glenda Wilson

On January 1, 2010, Hendry Regional
Medical Center will institute a 'no tobacco,
smoke-free' policy inside the hospital, on all
its sites and campuses, and on all associated
parking lots. Currently, employees, medical
staff and visitors must go outside the facili-
ties to use tobacco products, but as the New
Year begins, tobacco use will be prohibited,
both inside and out. Signs will be posted
around the hospital campuses to alert visi-
tors of the change.
A stop-smoking team, consisting of hos-
pital employees, began working months ago
to identify and implement ways to ease the
transition for people who were using tobac-
co. The team concurred that "The new poli-
cy is the right example for healthcare provid-
ers to set for the community. Our hospital
wants to provide an appropriate healthcare
environment."
The Centers for Disease Control and Pre-
vention estimates that each year nearly one
in five U.S. deaths result from tobacco use,
and statistics show that approximately $150
billion is spent each year in healthcare for
smokers.
For those who want to take this opportu-
nity to stop smoking, the hospital is offering
free smoking cessation classes. Call David
Theroux, Cardiopulmonary Director, at 863-
902-3051 for additional information regard-
ing the class schedules.

Celebrate the Wonder
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Often what we see and we hear in life
depends not so much upon the events as
much as who we are as people.
It's not just what is out there but what's
inside of us.
Thus, two people can see and experience
the same thing and one person says, "It's a
miracle," while another says, "It's coinci-
dence."
I firmly believe that two people there
that first Christmas in Bethlehem could
have heard and seen two entirely different
scenes.
Many missed what was happening in
their midst. I wonder what I would have
seen and experienced had I been there that
night.
Would I have heard the choirs of angels
singing or simply the sounds of barnyard
animals shifting around. Would I have seen
the star in the sky that night or simply a man
traveling with a pregnant teenager?
Would I have been so occupied with
what was going on around me that I would
have missed the divine occurrence that was
going on around me?
If you had been in Bethlehem that night
would you have seen and experienced?
Would you have been able to celebrate the
wonder?
You can answer that by asking yourself
what you saw this Christmas season. Have
you been so preoccupied with getting ready
for Christmas that the reason for the season
has been secondary?
When you watched the 6:00 news did
you see just the chaos and strife or a prayer
opportunity?
When you went out to do your shop-
ping did you see only crowds of people in
the stores or did you notice the worried and
stressed on some of their faces?
And in the midst of the sounds of honk-
ing horns and people arguing over places in
line, did you offer a smile or a word of peace
or just hurry on your way?
In the hustle and bustle of the season,
could you hear the sound of laughter that
will be coming because you furnished toys
for children in need, or gifts and food for in-
dividuals and families?
You see, so often what we see and what
we hear is not just dependent upon the event
but upon ourselves.
If you did in fact hear the cry from the
lonely, the laughter of poor children, if you
saw the sheep without a shepherd and took
opportunities to pray for them, then you
might just have seen the events that took
place in Bethlehem that night.
If you lacked that spiritual seeing and
hearing then you probably would have been
with the many who were present but who
saw or heard nothing out of the ordinary.
In the end perhaps one of our carols
words it best: "No ear may hear his coming,
but in this world of sin. Where meek souls
shall receive him still, the dear Christ child
enters in."

Christmas is for sinners!
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist


First Christian Church
Christmas, with its gaiety and gifts, it
make believe and merriment, is especially
welcomed by children.
Excitement among youngsters never
reaches a higher peak than during the Christ-
mas season.
As children happily tell Santa what they
want for Christmas, so their eyes grow large
with wonder while gazing longingly at the
toy display, as they dance merrily about the
big tree on Christmas Eve, it is easy to be-
lieve that Christmas is for children.
And yet, underneath all the laughter and
tinsel and high spirits lies a deeper and more
solemn meaning.
It is fully grasped only by the Christian
believer.
The non-believer does not comprehend
that the greatest miracle of the ages took
place when, centuries ago, God became
man!
When we see this deeper significance,
we move toward the belief that Christmas is
for Christians.
But this is not quite true, either.
Although Christmas is a time of special
delight to children and special significance
to Christians, it is not primarily for either
group. CHRISTMAS IS FOR SINNERS!
In fact, the first promise of Christmas
came because sin entered the world.
It appears in the third chapter of Genesis,
immediately after man's rebellion against
God. The seed of woman would bruise the
head of Satan.
The Christian message is directed to sin-
ners. Joseph the carpenter was told by the
Angel that the reason for the birth of Jesus
would be to "save his people from their
sins."
When the Child was born, Simeon, a de-
vout man of Jerusalem, recognized Jesus as
the sinners' ONLY HOPE. When he saw the
Child he exclaimed: "Lord, now lettest thy
servant depart in peace, for mine eyes have
seen THY SALVATION."
Simeon realized that God gave Christmas
to sinners!
Several years after the birth of Jesus the
apostle Paul, who never ceased to marvel at
God's great Blessing, said: "This is a faithful
saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that
CHRIST JESUS CAME INTO THE WORLD
TO SAVE SINNERS."
The first Christmas message, delivered by
a choir of Angels, was directed to sinners.
The Angels did not tell of the birth of a
new Teacher. That would have been good
news to scholars.
Nor did they announce the advent of a
Philosopher good news to mystics. It was
not the birth of one who should have been
good to Moralists.
Instead, they brought word of the birth of
a Savior good news to SINNERS!
Whoever else may benefit by this day we
call Christmas, the sinner benefits most. It is
for his salvation that Christmas was given.
Unless the message of Christmas is the
message of redemption, the meaning of
Christmas has been lost.
Is it any wonder that the coming of Jesus
into the world was heralded by the singing
of Angels?

School sculptures and Kevin Reese


Project mobilizes kids

For three weeks during the month of
December, Fourth and Fifth grade students
from Belle Glade and South Bay worked
with sculpture artist, Kevin Reese, to cre-
ate three moving sculptures that are now
permanently installed in Lyons Park in Belle
Glade.
The project actually began weeks earlier,
when local students submitted drawings of
what they thought the sculptures should look
like. Mr. Reese, who is based in Washington,
D.C., used the students' drawings to design
the three sculptures, and then worked with
the students to create and build the art!
He was hosted by Glade View Elementa-
ry, Pioneer Park Elementary, and Gove Ele-
mentary. Students from Rosenwald Elemen-
tary travelled to Pioneer Park to participate
in the project, and students from Glades Day
School traveled to Gove. Over 500 Fourth
and Fifth graders worked on this wonderful
addition to Belle Glade's public parks.
"I am thrilled to be working with kids on
a project that creates art for a public space,"
said Mr. Reese, "The really exciting thing is
the students were involved in the art's cre-
ation from the very beginning to the very
end. That gives them an extraordinary sense
of ownership."
Funding for the sculptures was provided
through a $25,000 grant from the State of


Florida's Division of Cultural Affair's Culture
Builds Florida grant program, with support
from PBCC and its Foundation.
"This has been a truly exciting project,"
said Leigh Woodham, Director of PBCC's
Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center, "I am thrilled
that we were able to work with Kevin Reese,
our local schools and the City of Belle Glade


to make this project happen."
On Wednesday, Dec. 16, staff from the
city of Belle Glade and representatives from
local organizations joined Kevin to assemble
the sculptures in place at Lyons Park. The
next day, the students attended the ribbon
cutting ceremony to celebrate their accom-
plishment.

PBSO puts elderly on center stage for the holidays


Turkey meals, Christmas

trees distributed to South

Bay's seniors

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY Seniors in this small city
have become a priority to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO).
It's something that's not overlooked,
even embraced in some instances.
On Dec. 11, PBSO law enforcement of-
ficers gave hope to several seniors in the
area, setting up Christmas trees in their
homes.
According to PBSO Corporal Leonardo
Bailum, a total of five trees each in South
Bay and Pahokee were distributed to se-
niors on the morning of Dec. 11.
And the PBSO deputies actually took the
time to decorate the Christmas trees, as
they went into each of the seniors' homes
to decorate ornaments, lights and accesso-
ries to spice up the trees.
"They were unaware we were going to
do this for them," Bailum said of the se-
niors. "We wanted to surprise them."
As part of the PBSO-District 11 (South
Bay) Senior Watch Program, Bailum, with
the help of PBSO Deputy Mark Sutterfield
and PBSO Lt. Rob Sandt, came up with the
holiday idea just over two months ago.
Bailum explained that it's not just about
placing Christmas trees in the seniors'
homes; it's about giving them recognition
on each holiday and on their birthdays.
With that being said, PBSO deputies as-
signed to the South Bay area have been as-
signed to a specific senior and are expected
to check with him/her from time to time.
It's, what Bailum says, an effort to estab-
lish a healthy rapport between the area's
seniors and law enforcement officials.
"You know how it is with the seniors,"
Bailum said of the Holiday Tree Program,
which was a collaboration between Dis-
tricts 5 (Western Palm Beach County), 11
(South Bay) and 12 (Pahokee).
"For us to give them a tree, and with
some of them that don't have much family
in the area, it was very special to do that for
them. They were real happy and smiled a
lot. It just speaks volumes of what the pro-
gram is about."
But there's more to it than that.
Deputies can be seen in the commu-
nity passing out crime prevention tips to
seniors, as well as making conscientious
efforts to keep them informed of what's
going on in the Glades and in Palm Beach
County.
Also, area residents can expect the
PBSO deputies to distribute holiday cards
for the seniors within the next few days, if
they haven't done so already.
"It's really important for us to forge a


close relationship with the seniors," Sandt
said, as he expects this initiative will con-
tinue to grow in the future.
"We want to make sure their [the se-
niors'] welfare is taken care of. We want
them to know that we're there when they
need us. We have not forgotten about
them."
In addition to all that, the PBSO depu-
ties delivered turkey meals and side dishes
to approximately 50 families during the
Thanksgiving holiday last month.
It's something that has likely lifted up
the hearts of the seniors and the PBSO
deputies alike.
Bailum offers some parting thoughts on
the fledgling program.
"To see the satisfaction on the seniors'
faces is priceless," he said.
For more information on the Seniors
Watch Initiative, please contact Bailum at

His coming brought the greatest day that
ever dawned upon the earth!
For Jesus will for the world read Matthew
28:18-20, Mark 16:15-16 & Acts 2:37-42.

Christmas: A matter of see-
ing the reason for it all
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There is something special about all of
the months of getting ready now, coming
down to a final few hours.
The shopping and planning, the prepara-
tion for guests and sending cards, the hours
devoted to wrapping presents and visiting
special people; it all culminates in an hour


or so that the faithful spend worshipping at
Christmas.
There is something ironic about it all;
with all of the busy-ness and what has be-
come secularization, it is easy to forget the
real reason for Christmas.
It is about God's Son coming to earth, the
message of salvation and hope He brought,
sharing this life and knowing first-hand the
joys and hardships of being human, and
promising that we can have all that He gives
to His people.
The real "reason for the season" is about
a baby born into the world; full of hardships
and difficulties and yet triumphing over it
all.
Saint John expresses it perfectly; "For
God so loved the world that He gave His
only-begotten Son that whoever believes in
Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For
God did not send His Son into the world to
condemn the world but to save the world
through Him (John 3;16-17)."


We who celebrate Christmas by remem-
bering others and gift-giving can so easily
forget the gift we have received when God
Himself came into our world.
The story recalls hardships; travel of a
young couple at a difficult time, living in a
land occupied by a foreign power, being un-
der the rule of a crazed tyrant who wanted
to destroy the infant, having no place avail-
able to give birth or find comfort.
In the midst of it all, though, there was a
guiding star and the message of "Peace on
Earth" was heralded. In many ways, it would
seem we have not changed.
We are in the midst of two wars, eco-
nomic difficulties and uncertainties cloud
our security, global climate issues threaten
our very existence, people fear over the loss
of livelihoods and there is no more certainty
about jobs or what tomorrow will bring.
Jesus' time, as well as our own time, was
not an easy one.
Yet in spite of it all, God comes into the


world to share it in its fullest; the good and
the bad, the weak and strong, the beautiful
and ugly of all human life.
He will make a final offering of Himself
for it; because it is weak but not defeated,
fallen but not destroyed, difficult but not be-
yond His saving grace.
The real Christmas is about the beginning
of this message; initially seen by shepherds
and wise men, and then a small band of fol-
lowers, until it is finally recognized around
the world.
May we see it once more, and may there
be a special moment of worship in our
hearts and lives; remembering God's prom-
ise and offering to all "Peace on Earth, Good
Will to Humanity."
Have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas
and New Year.

environmental issues, and the same access
to U.S. 27 as the South Bay site. U.S. Sugar
announced the site in May, urging port offi-
cials to consider the vast railroad infrastruc-
ture already in place.
That site ranked third, behind the St. Lu-
cie proposal.
Richard Grosso, representing Everglades
Law Center, hinted at the possibility of an ex-
tended legal battle over the selection of the
Florida Crystals site.
"It just seems as though they have not
had a real level-headed look at all this,"
Grosso said after the port board's decision
Thursday, according to published reports.
"This is not the final word on the subject at
all."


Ashley Tripp, the president of the LORE
Alliance of Palm Beach County, and a resi-
dent of Belle Glade, defends the port's deci-
sion with the argument that jobs are desper-
ately needed in the communities of South
Bay, Belle Glade and Pahokee.
"Our organization resolved year and half
ago that we wanted it at the Florida Crystals
site," she said. "We still stand behind it."
According to Ms. Tripp, there is a need
for economic diversity in an area tradition-
ally hit hard by the economy. She takes is-
sue with groups like the Sierra Club, which
has criticized the South Bay site for its close
proximity to Everglades Restoration efforts.
"To think it would hinder Everglades res-
toration is absurd. That's a false statement
to make other people get on their bandwag-
on," she said. "My thought to the environ-
mentalists is that you have to think of man
above the environment. What suggestions
do they submit that will help the people of
the Glades?"
But the environmentalists aren't the only
groups that Florida Crystals must contend
with the company has also pointedly re-
ferred to the governor in its communica-
tions.
"We are hopeful now that the local gov-
ernments have spoken Governor Crist will
put aside his recent differences with Florida
Crystals and not continue to cause econom-
ic harm to the residents of western Palm
Beach County," said Cantens.
