IB Primary Years Program
Pahokee Elementary School has become
the first and only elementary school in the
West Area to receive authorization to teach
the prestigious International Baccalaure-
ate Primary Years Programme (PYP). This
achievement will give the western commu-
nity students access to the rigorous academ-
ic preparation of a world class curriculum.
An elated school staff received the notifi-
cation on December 7, 2009 after applying
for the authorization in June 2009.
The International Baccalaureate Primary
Years Program prepares students to be ac-
tive participants in rigorous, relevant, and
challenging learning experiences. The PYP
offers an international, trans-disciplinary
educational program that fosters the devel-
opment of the whole child. There is a strong
emphasis on critical and creative thinking
and taking action to improve our world. This
also builds a K-12 continuum of Internation-
al Baccalaureate Education in the Pahokee


community.
Pahokee Elementary participated in a
two day authorization visit on October 26
and 27, 2009. During this visit, the autho-
rization team, which consisted of three IB
site evaluators, interviewed administrators,
teachers, parents and students; visited class-
es and conducted observations of the les-
sons. "It is an absolute honor to become an
authorized IB world school for our school
and community. This opportunity will pro-
vide our students and teachers with learning
experiences that will impact the world. We
worked very hard to get this for our com-
munity and it means a lot to our students,
teachers and families," stated Vivian Green,
principal at Pahokee Elementary.
To prepare for this authorization, the
school administration and staff of Pahokee
Elementary participated in extensive profes-
sional development for best practices based
on current research, including differentiated
instruction, varied formative and summative


assessments, and inquiry-based instruction.
The focus on internationalism increases stu-
dents' knowledge of the people of the world
and encourages cooperation and communi-
cation among students of different cultures
and nationalities.
"Mrs. Green and her staff have done an
outstanding job at creating a strong PYP
program and developing their students to
become inquirers inside the classroom and
exploring the world outside. The interdisci-
plinary themes are evident and thriving at
Pahokee Elementary," said Janis Andrews,
West Area superintendent. The school be-
gan the process of implementing the Pri-
mary Years Programme of the International
Baccalaureate in March 2008. It is also, a
recipient of the Magnet Schools Assistance
Program Federal Grant that was awarded to
the District in November 2007.

FWC: Slow down for panthers at dusk and beyond


A Florida panther met an untimely death
in the early morning hours of Dec. 17, after
a collision with a vehicle on Interstate 75 in
Broward County, near the Broward-Collier
county line. Fourteen panthers have been
killed on roadways in Florida so far in 2009,
and that has wildlife officials concerned. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) urges motorists to be vigilant
while driving as daylight fades.
To avoid collisions with roaming pan-
thers, the FWC requests that motorists obey
posted speed limits and remain on guard for
panthers crossing roads at dusk and later.
Panthers tend to be more active during
the hours between dusk and dawn, when
most automobile strikes occur. The driver
of the vehicle in the early-morning collision
saw the panther at the last minute and could
not avoid the collision because of the speed
of the vehicle. FWC biologists note that pan-


others often make a sudden dash as a car ap-
proaches, limiting the ability to avoid an ac-
cident, especially when drivers are traveling
at higher speeds. To help protect the large
cats from increasing traffic threats, the FWC,
along with sheriff's deputies and the Florida
Highway Patrol, actively enforce panther
speed zones in Lee and Collier counties.
Panther speed zones are well-marked, with
speed limits reduced at night to 45 mph.
Motorists who violate panther speed
zones often receive fines exceeding $200 for
their first offense. There is a mandatory court
appearance for any violation of more than
29 mph over the posted limit. Though Flor-
ida has experienced a significant increase
in panther numbers, from an estimated 30
animals 20 years ago to approximately 100
today, Darrell Land, FWC biologist and pan-
ther team leader, cautions that the species is
far from recovered.


"Panther deaths, including those from ve-
hicle strikes, have increased, in part because
of a rise in its numbers," Land said. "In spite
of the modest increase in numbers, every
cat remains important to the survival of the
species in the wild."
The number of Florida panthers killed by
collisions with vehicles has been on the in-
crease since 2000, ranging from 6 to 15 per
year. The highest figure occurred in 2007
when 15 panthers are known to have died
on state highways.
"Motorists also should be aware that pan-
thers are not always struck in posted pan-
ther speed zones," Land said. "We caution
motorists to be on the lookout for the large
cats in wild areas near panther zones, espe-
cially around sundown."
The FWC has worked diligently for more
than 20 years to reduce panther highway
mortality. Work by FWC biologists has been


successful in increasing the population of
Florida panthers and restoring the genetic
health and vigor of the panther population.
Much of the funding for panther research
and monitoring comes from fees collected
when residents purchase panther specialty
license plates.
"Research by biologists includes field
studies on the panther to determine den-
ning habits and movement patterns," said
Kipp Frohlich, leader of the FWC's Imperiled
Species Management Section. "All of these
studies aid in the long-term survival and re-
covery of the Florida panther."
For more information on the Florida
panther, go to www.floridapanthernet.org.
To report dead or injured panthers, call the
Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922.

The story of the Battle of Hatcheelustee


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The Second Seminole War was fast ap-
proaching its second year and it was clear
that so far, the Gods of War had not favored
the American commanders.
Capable and experienced soldiers like
General Gaines, General Clinch and General
Winfield Scott had met the enemy and failed
to defeat him.
In the summer of 1836, President Jackson
gave the Florida command to Florida Gover-
nor Call, who unknowingly, would follow in
the footsteps of his predecessors.
Governor Call's methods met with little
success against a resourceful, but elusive
enemy, while diseases and logistics plagued
his armies and crippled all of his strategic
plans.
On Dec. 9, 1836, Governor Call lost not
only his Florida command, but also his rela-
tionship to a longtime friend, President An-
drew Jackson.
Jackson accused Call for not being ag-
gressive enough and replaced him with
General Jesup, who was fighting the Creeks
in Alabama.
A bewildered Governor Call, soon parted
ways with his ole friend, President Andrew
Jackson, whom he felt had betrayed him.
Neither Governor Call, nor President An-
drew Jackson, ever reconciled their differ-
ences.
It is ironic that General Jesup was cho-
sen as the next Florida commander because
he was currently serving under General
Winfield Scott, a former commander in the
Florida Theater.
It is also probably fair to say that General
Jesup was ready for a transfer, since he and
General Winfield Scott were clashing on the
finer points of military protocol.
Some of General Jesup's problems with
General Scott were very similar to those that
General Gaines had earlier encountered,
while serving under General Winfield Scott
in the Florida Theater.
General Jesup's issues like those of for-
mer General Gaines, were adjudicated in a
court of inquiry.
Neither General Scott nor General Jesup
was found guilty of the accusations each ac-
cused the other of.
When General Jesup took command of
Florida, he like his predecessors, believed
the only way to end the war was to drive the
Seminoles from their strongholds along the
Withlachoochee River.
Unlike his predecessors, he disliked divid-
ing his force into smaller units.
Instead, he reasoned that a single, larger
force of men would be easier to command
in the field than several smaller forces, due
to the logistic challenges of the Florida Wil-
derness.
However, this idea was soon disregarded
as General Jesup became more acquainted
with the Florida Wilderness and the Semi-
nole tactics.
In time, General Jesup's strategy would
revolve around deployment of soldiers to
wherever the enemy made an appearance.
This deployment made his detachments
more mobile, while at the same time, keep-
ing them in constant contact with the en-


emy.
The new tactics General Jesup employed
became far more successful than those of
early commanders.
Constant pressure on the enemy was
yielding success. Small skirmishes started
favoring the American forces, as well as
the capture of Seminoles and many of their
Black allies.
On Jan. 8, 1837, Brig. Gen. Thomas Je-
sup gave Colonel Henderson command of
the Army's 2nd Brigade, which included the
Marines and friendly Creek allies.
On Jan. 23 near Lake Apopka, a detach-
ment including Capt. John Harris' company
of "Horse Marines," fought a large body of
Seminoles. Five days later, Henderson led
his force of Marines and Creeks into the
Great Cypress Swamp to find the main body
of Indians.
When the friendly Creeks (Creek Indians
wore white turbans to identify themselves
as friend) made contact with the Seminoles,
Henderson ordered the Marines into the
battle. In the dense swamp, the Marines and
the Creeks engaged the enemy across the
Hatchee-Lustee River, a deep 20-yard-wide
stream. Marines and Creeks extended them-
selves along the river bank and laid down a
cross-fire.
When the Seminole's fire slackened, the
troops plunged across the river by swim-
ming or crossing on logs.
The Seminoles started retreating. Colonel
Henderson's force then pursued the Semi-
noles for half a mile, through an even more
difficult stretch of swamp.
Six Marines died as the Seminoles made
repeated stands in the fierce action.
The outcome of the battle rekindled ne-
gotiations with the Seminoles. Several Semi-
nole leaders came in and discussed peace
terms with General Jesup, which resulted in
an armistice that was suppose to last until
Feb. 18, 1837.
The armistice failed to stop the blood-
shed on Florida's wild frontier, but it even-
tually brought the Seminole leaders back to
the negotiating table at Fort Dade, on March
6, 1837.
Only a small number of Seminole lead-
ers came in to negotiate the peace terms.
The document they signed became known
as the "Capitulation of the Seminole nation
of Indians and their allies by Jumper, Hola-
toochee, and Yaholoochee, representing the
principle chief Micanopy."
The treaties provisions basically stated
that all hostilities would cease and that the
Seminoles would gather south of the Hills-
bourgh River, where they would wait until
shipped west.
General Jesup had always interpreted the
Seminole War as a Negro War and acted ac-
cordingly during the peace negotiations.
He knew that the success of the Capitula-
tion document depended on how he treated
the Seminole Negroes, who were now in-
grained in the Seminole Culture.
Jesup made sure the Negroes were pro-
tected in the document by stating that Ne-
groes living in Florida were allies of the Sem-
inoles and would be allowed to accompany
the Seminoles west.
Jesup rationalized that this document
would end the Negro problem (slavery is-


sues) as well as the Seminole War.
The Second Seminole War was starting
to look like it was coming to an end as vari-
ous groups of Seminoles started gathering
around Tampa Bay for their trip west.
What looked like an ending to an unpop-
ular war was overturned when Seminole
leaders, Osceola and Sam Jones, convinced
or threatened the waiting Seminoles that
they should return back to the swamps and
continue the war.
Needless to say, General Jesup was very
upset when approximately 700 Seminoles
slipped back into the liquid green swamps.
It was at this point that a frustrated General
Jesup made the decision to use whatever
means it took to capture the Seminoles and
ship them west.
This decision would later make General
Jesup the most controversial General of the
Second Seminole Indian War.

Local citizens join in the Audubon D



Christmas bird count ., .


Binocular brigades may be
seen in region

Join volunteers for the 3rd annual Christ-
mas Bird Count at STA5 and the surrounding
15 mile area organized by Hendry-Glades
Audubon on Saturday Jan. 2, 2010.
Teams will begin at 7 a.m. Participants
may help for half to full day.
The post count event will be held in
Clewiston.

land 863-674-0695 or sta5birding@embarq-

The longest running Citizen Science sur-
vey in the world, Audubon's annual Christ-
mas Bird Count (CBC) will take place be-
tween Dec. 14, and Jan. 5, 2010.
From Alaska to Antarctica, tens of thou-
sands of volunteers will add a new layer to
over a century of data vital to conservation.
Armed with binoculars, several local vol-
unteers will join this Citizen Science initia-
tive to count birds in our region.
Scientists rely on these data to better un-
derstand how birds and the environment we
share are faring.
Just like canaries in the coal mine, birds
serve as early indicators of problems that
can eventually affect people and wildlife.
Data from Audubon are at the heart of
several scientific reports. CBC data informed
the first U.S. State of the Birds Report, issued
earlier this year by the Department of the In-
terior.
CBC analysis also fueled Audubon's re-
port that Climate Change is already having
an impact on birds across the continent.
The Christmas Bird Count began in 1900
when the founder of Bird-Lore (the progeni-
tor of Audubon magazine), Frank Chapman,
suggested an alternative to the "side hunt,"
in which teams competed to see who could
shoot the most game, including birds.
Chapman proposed that people "hunt"
birds only to identify, count, and record
them.
These Binocular Brigades often brave

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

winter's chill, ice and snow to record chang-
es in resident populations and ranges.
"When Frank Chapman started the
Christmas Bird Census, it was a visionary
act," said Audubon President John Flicker.
"No one could have predicted how im-
portant the CBC would become as a re-
source and tool for conservation."
CBC data also help document success
stories. The Christmas Bird Count helped
document the comeback of the previously
endangered Bald Eagle, and significant in-
creases in waterfowl populations, both the
result of conservation efforts.
"Each CBC volunteer observer is an im-
portant contributor, helping to shape the
overall direction of bird conservation," says
Geoff LeBaron, Audubon's Christmas Bird

New Year Priorities
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Chrisian Church
What will be your priorities as you plan the New
Year? Many will make resolutions to lose weight by
liii,_. less and exercising more. It's amazing how
much time and money is spent in keeping our bod-
ies in shape. I Timothy 4:8 says "Physical training is
of some value, but godliness has value for all things,
promise for both the present life and the life to
come." But the Bible does teach us that our bodies
are the "temple of the Holy Spirit" and if we destroy
our bodies through indulgence, drugs or abuse, God
will destroy us." Many people do not take care of
their physical bodies and abuse them with tobacco,
food, alcohol and even prescription drugs and then
blame God when they get sick.
Karen Phelps, a distance runner wrote: "On this
particular day, I didn' i. I i i .... iii .. .- so I had
a set plan for training. 1.Run daily, even if you don't
feel like it. 2.Run daily, even if you sometimes have
to skip fun and pleasure. 3.Run daily, even in bad
weather even if people think you're weird. 4.Run
daily, even when it gives you aches and pains and
you feel like quitting. 5. Run daily, even if you don't
feel it's doing you any good. "One day, she contin-
ues, "as I jogged along on my training run, it came
to me that I ,i I 1,, ii ...... ..waswhat my SPIRI-
TUAL LIFE NEEDED! Do you know what I learned?
Sometimes you may not feel like praying, reading
the Bible, going to church, or going out of your way
to help others. But if you're in training Physical or
Spiritual -YOU DO IT!"
What that says to me is we not only should
care for our physical bodies but also for our spiri-
tual well-being as well. We should be as interested
in growing in Christ as we are in our daily exercise
program. Some have a chart fixed so they can fol-
low their progress in their exercise. Do you "chart"
your quest for spiritual growth? You can chart your
spiritual growth by reading your Bible more, pray-
ing more and forgiving others who offend you. You
know if you are still filled with jealousy, bitterness, or
resentment. You may be in perfect physical condi-
tion, but how is your spiritual condition?
Another verse that reminds us that we should
prosper both physically and spiritually is III John
2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou may-
est prosper and be in health, EVEN AS THY SOUL
PROSPERETH." What if tomorrow you woke up to
find your physical health was as good as your spiri-
tual health? What if when you looked in the mirror
you saw, not your physical face, but the face of your
spirit?
We have a lot of improvements to make in both
body and spirit for 2010, so let's all get to work!

Christmas isn't over yet... or

ever!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There is something sad about packing up after
Christmas; putting away the tree, taking down the
lights, packing up the decorations. Holidays come
..and go... another one comes along or another
year passes. Many Churches count the Sunday after
Christmas as "Low Sunday".
Attendance is down and the holiday spirit has
waned. There is something special, though, about
after Christmas. It is not the end of the story, it is only
the very beginning. We can look back on Christmas;
not because it is over, but because of what hap-
pened;... because the Lord came into this world.
We celebrate the ,.i, iii.... of our children, not
because school is finished but because new doors


will be open. We celebrate promotions because they
mark a new start in a career or a new role in the ser-
vice; not because they are the end. I remember my
ordinations, not because they were the culmination
of studies and response to a call to ministry, but be-
cause of the opportunity to serve that they brought.
Likewise Christmas; the Lord came into this world
so that we might have a better life here, and an even
better life hereafter. Jesus tells us that "I have come
that they may have life, and have it to the full (John
10:10)."
He has left the manger and the stable to become
the shepherd; and will lay down His life for the sheep
that follow Him (v.11). Indeed, He did lay down His
life for us; now is the time to live in the fullness of that
life He gave us. His birthday is remembered for what
it meant; -i ., i.. us instead. I knewofa group
in one Church I served that celebrated "Christmas in
July." It was complete with presents, music, dinners,
and all of the rest except the weather was warmer.
When I asked "What is this about?" the answer was
that "Christmas is too good to celebrate just once
during the ,,' and they were right! In fact, we cel-
ebrate each time one is born into the world, or each
time something special happens to us, or each time
something new and wonderful comes into our lives.
The words echo..." that they may have life and
have it to the full." The gift of Christmas comes so
many times that we don't even make the connect
tion. Christmas will continue because the Lord has
intended His faithful to continue until the end of
time; and no matter what, He intends that we have
life and have it abundantly. When we study the dat-
ing and history of Christmas, many arguments can


be made for Jesus being born in 4 B.C., (when it was
calculated that stars would have converged in the
East), or later in the season (as Orthodox Christians
celebrate it) or at another time.
We've picked the date for Christmas from our tra-
ditions; maybe we really don't know! Maybe Christ-
mas can be celebrated all of the time after all. Maybe
it should be!

New Beginnings
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It's fun to play with all the brand-new possibili-
ties open to us on January 1. Go jogging on January
1, and you've exercised every day this year. You can
come to breakfast and truthfully announce, "I'm so
hungry, I feel as if I haven't eaten since last 1,' Get
through lunch without ,ii._.. potato chips or a candy
bar, and this year reflects a whole new healthy and
perfectly kept diet regime. On January 1, at least for
some time, you've never yelled at the kids, forgotten
to floss, thrown your dirty clothes on the bathroom
floor, nor have forgotten to read the Bible all year!
On January 1 our whole life can be transformed.
For one day at least, all our good intentions can
be jump-started, and all our bad habits can be un-
plugged. At least for a few hours (or minutes?), the
year is a perfect reflection of our best self.
But January 1 is followed inevitably by January 2
and January 3. Soon we will opt for staying in a cozy
bed a few more minutes rather than plunging out
into the cold for that jog. Pretty soon candy wrap-

pers will start appearing in our desk drawer again.
Pretty soon, we will surely get aggravated enough at
a bad driver or frustrating situation to have unsancti-
fled thoughts. Before we know it, our socks are back
on the bathroom floor, our dental floss is gathering
dust, and we fall asleep before we can even get the
Bible open.
For all but a few of us, most New Year's resolu-
tions get packed away with the last of the Christmas
decorations. The problem with most of our resolu-
tions is that we resolve to make changes in our life-
styles, but miss restructuring our lives and changing
the paradigms by which we live.
The best resolution we can make can be found in
the Gospel of Luke when 12 year old Jesus answered
his parents as to why he acted as he did, "Didn't you
know I would be about my Father's business?"
The ultimate New Year's resolution does not
challenge us to cut fat grams, or quit smoking or get
to aerobics class twice a week. The ultimate resolu-
tion a Christian can make is to make it our business
to be a part of God's business.
What's God's business? God's business is trans-
formation. An electrical transformer takes high volt-
age and transforms it into energy that we can use
in our everyday lives. Without a transformer, there
could be no light in the darkness. At Bethlehem, God
came to us and gave us Jesus, who transforms in His
life the love and power of God into an energy that we
can use and experience in our lives everyday.
A fresh New Year lies unblemished before us.
Our life and commitment to making God's business
our business can help the love of God through Christ
transform the world.

and wave your worries away.


NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. Lee "Chip"
Clarke, who grew up in Belle Glade, was
among 531 scientists the American Associa-
tion for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
has elevated to the rank of fellow.
The pre-eminent national scientific or-
ganization selects fellows based on their ef-
forts in advancing science or fostering appli-
cations considered scientifically or socially
distinguished.
Lee Clarke is an associate professor in the
Department of Sociology, School of Arts and
Sciences at Rutgers University in New Jersey.
Clarke works on problems concerning the
environment, disaster, complex organiza-
tions and science.


Many of his writings have been about the
relationships between social organization
and disaster.
His current work is about how scientists
negotiate the boundaries of science and
politics. The project focuses on scientists
whose work foretold, in various ways, the
great harm that Katrina would bring to New
Orleans.
Clarke was cited for pathbreakingg re-
search on organizations and risk, exemplary
teaching, professional leadership, and out-
standing work in communicating social sci-
ence to the public."

families through the Belle Glade office.
One of the council's major wishes is the
construction of more affordable housing
units in the area, since many of their clients
experience trouble finding a suitable place
to live.
"I wish the FWCC could find someone
who is able to construct quality and afford-
able housing for our clients," said Ms. Mon-
roe. "Even though Belle Glade has the hous-
ing authority, more often than not, the list is
usually full to capacity."
Operating on a deficit
Another agency which reaches out to the
Glades community is New Hope Charities
Inc. in Pahokee. The year 1988 marked the
founding of the charity, whose mission is
to improve the mental, moral and physical
condition of families in need.
In two decades, the organization has es-
tablished English classes for adults, comput-
er learning classes, after and summer school
care for children between the ages of 7 and
14, tutoring and homework assistance, food
distribution to needy families and more.
Guillermo Rivera, director of programs
and services at New Hope, confirmed the
significant decrease in donations and fund-
raisers this year. The recession sees New

"It is an inestimable honor to be elected
a Fellow of the AAAS. I am delighted to be in
such distinguished company," Clarke said.
Founded in 1848, the tradition of select-
ing AAAS fellows began in 1874. AAAS is the
world's largest general scientific society and
works to advance science for human well-
being through its projects, programs and
publications. AAAS includes some 262 af-
filiated societies and academies of science,
serving 10 million individuals.
The association conducts many programs
in the areas of science policy, science educa-
tion and international scientific cooperation.
Its prestigious peer-reviewed journal Sci-
ence has the largest paid circulation of any
peer-reviewed general science journal in the
world, with an estimated total readership of
1 million.


Hope operating on an $80,000 deficit.
Part of that may be how inexpensive the
agency's services are, but there are currently
no plans to drastically increase those fees.
"The most important thing ... is how af-
fordable our after school and summer pro-
grams are," said Mr. Rivera. "It costs only
$10 a month for our programs which in-
clude pick up from school and to transport
children to home is $30 a month."
Not willing to allow financial figures to
dampen the goals for the organization's fu-
ture, Guillermo Rivera has ambitious plans
to increase the number of children in the
program from 65 to 150, enlarge the food
program, create a partnership with the Palm
Beach County Healthcare District to offer
free healthcare through an on-site clinic
and begin the construction with the Glades
Academy for an elementary school.
Despite the challenges, New Hope con-
tinues to charge forward.
This holiday season, the program provid-
ed 2,400 toys to needy children and hosted a
cookout for their families.
"This agency has a highly qualified staff
that is dedicated to what they do," said Mr.
Rivera. "We treat each and every child with
respect and kindness."
The current recession did put a hamper
on local agencies and charities but that did
not hinder them from meeting the need dur-
ing this holiday season. Together the feature
agencies were able to give away toys to
2,674 children.

Reporter
Continued From Page 1

doesn't work out in the field of media, he
would like to have a career as a lawyer.
And he's only eight years old, talking like
that.
Anthony on being Damon's understudy:
"I think it's great to do the things like Da-
mon does because it going to help me when
I grow up," Anthony said.
"I want to be a TV reporter. I already
know what it takes to be one. It takes you to
be funny, intelligent and ready to go do it."

A network TV debut opportunity
for Anthony
Both Damon and Anthony will be spend-
ing much of the 2009-2010 academic year
collaborating on some KEC-TV reports.
But the two are obviously in different
stages of development in their aspiring me-
dia futures.
While Damon was spending time con-
ducting Veteran's Day interviews with indi-
viduals such as Pahokee Vice-Mayor Henry
Crawford, Anthony was busy trying to gain
some face time on NBC's Today Show.
According to Zimmerman, when Antho-
ny's initial report of the Canal Point/Pahokee
Middle-Senior High School band collabora-
tive was picked up by the NBC television net-
work, the video was 'so good' that the Today
Show wanted to conduct a phone interview
with the third-grader.
The clip, which can be seen on YouTube,
reportedly made it past the first round of a
recent kid reporter contest sponsored by the
Today Show.


Round Two would end up becoming that
fateful interview with the network.
Zimmerman on how the interview went
with the Today Show:
"During the interview, Anthony got a little
froze up," he said. "The Today Show want-
ed to see how he would do in a setting like
that."
Despite being denied air time with the
Today Show, Anthony may get to embark
on another great opportunity in the near fu-
ture.

Possible trip to the University
of Florida
Before Damon graduates from Canal
Point Elementary next June, Zimmerman is
hoping KEC-TV can secure an opportunity to
travel to the University of Florida (UF).
It would serve not only as a possible cli-
max in Damon's incredible time as a Canal
Point student, but also, perhaps, a spring-
board to what's expected to become great
things for Anthony in the future.
What helps a lot is that Janoris Jenkins,
UF's sophomore cornerback, is a Pahokee
High School and Canal Point Elementary
alum.
Though UF officials have not yet respond-
ed to Zimmerman's several attempts to get
Damon to conduct future off-campus reports
with them, he is still confident a documen-
tary of Jenkins's life on the campus could be
shot and aired at some point.
"The students look up to Janoris as a role
model," Zimmerman said of his 25 KEC-TV
student participants.
"I just want to show them how hard it
is to be student and a football player in col-
lege."


With Damon expected to apply to the
Bak Middle School of the Arts in the near fu-
ture if he hadn't done so already LaVoise
Smith, the Canal Point Elementary principal,
makes her plea to UF for allowing the KEC-
TV team to document Jenkins's time at the
university.
"It would be a great opportunity for UF
to allow Damon, who is walking the same
halls that Janoris did, to connect and reflect
on the things that are important about their
hometown of Pahokee," said Smith, who is
a UF alum in her own right.
"It could be a great motivational piece
for Janoris [a Canal Point Elementary stu-
dent from Aug. 1994 until June 2002] to re-
connect with our kids here at Canal Point.
Damon could bring UF back home and let
his fellow peers know that they can be what-
ever it is they desire to be, by way of hard
work and determination."
Damon, who's favorite college is UF,
would likely be taking Anthony to the Gaines-
ville-based university with him, should the
opportunity arise.
Anthony on the chance to see Jenkins at
UF:
"It's like we get to see a Pahokee Blue
Devil on a college campus," Anthony said. "I
want to visit UF because it gives me a chance
to see what college is all about."

The present and future
Damon has been the eyes, ears and face
of Canal Point Elementary School since the
2008 presidential elections occurred, with
the election of President Barack Obama.
Damon's rise to international recogni-
tion peaked when he got to cover President
Obama's inauguration in January and se-
cured the now-famous interview with the


U.S. President several months later.
With that being said, as Damon's time at
the elementary school winds down, there's
no better time than now, perhaps, to set An-
thony up as the next face of KEC-TV.
Zimmerman, who's working on the tran-
sition now, makes a comparison between
Damon and Anthony.
"Anthony excels better in a classroom
setting, while Damon's charm simply can
wow everyone," Zimmerman said.
"Damon's charm captures people's
hearts, while Anthony is one who catches
on to things very quickly and follows direc-
tions well. Both of them are bright kids with
great personalities."
Recently, the City of Pahokee commis-
sioners recognized KEC-TV for all the work
it's done to give Pahokee much-welcomed
and needed positive press.
It's a refreshing accomplishment, espe-
cially since the close-knit community has,
arguably, been the poster child for negativity
in the media for a string of events that oc-
curred this year.
"When you hear the students say how
much KEC-TV has impacted their lives,
it touched my heart," Zimmerman said.
"They're very excited about being part of this
and you could tell it means a lot to them."
Looking back at all that transpired
throughout the year, Zimmerman sees the
KEC-TV triumphs as an avenue of opportu-
nity that the youngsters in the area probably
wouldn't get otherwise.
"A lot of our kid talent here in the Glades
just needs to be showcased," Zimmerman
said. "The youth need people to guide them
so their gifts can come out to the public."
