harvest


By Nina G. Wills
Special to The Sun
The smell of oil and grease
penetrate the air. The sound of
semi trucks rumble and roar along
the highway. Nestled on the north
side of Belle Glade is Wynn Perfor-
mance Engines. While the outside
appears to be a typical auto repair
shop, the inside reveals a surprise.


1- aruL s e eLr VVnn, I o-1 L
spoken gentleman who loves to
paint.
"I get a good feeling when I
paint. It is happiness," Wynn said.
Wynn started painting when he
was in elementary school in Mara-
thon, Florida, where he copied
art from Christmas cards. Art was
always of great interest to Wynn
and he would talk to local artists,
watch them paint and learn. He
read books to study techniques

-s L acV -l ,-l l L- e ree" n o o y.
He never stopped painting,
though.
Wynn has painted 200 to 300
works over the course of his life-
time, ranging from seascapes to
portraits of his nieces. Yet, he calls
his artwork simply a hobby.
Wynn moved to West Palm
Beach in 1992. He collects clas-
sic cars and needed to find a
mechanic to work on them. His
cars brought him to Belle Glade


'Taking back our youth'

Finally speaking about the In some areas of Belle Glade, teen
violence has become the elephant in the
elephant in the room classroom. Even for an article on the sub-
ject, very few are willing to step forward
By Ashley Causey and talk.
Special to The Sun But why?


On Dec. 23, 2009 in Belle Glade, an
18-year-old man was shot and killed
Wednesday evening while playing dice on
a sidewalk.
Several other people stood near the
scene of the shooting, but no witnesses
came forward, according to the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's office.
This and countless other stories have
made headlines, for reasons that few
Glades residents would like.
A strange thing happens in a com-
munity that, outwardly, seems shocked
and saddened at the news. Public con-
demnations morph into private conflicts
about the safety of coming forward with
information on any of the high number of
cases of shooting deaths in the Glades.
Some officials fear an extension of this
fear gripping parents who may be unsure
of how to keep their own children from
becoming the latest name in the latest re-
port about the latest death in Belle Glade.


Finding resources
Teen violence has increase across the
country since the 90s, and that escalation
has its microcosm in the Glades. Nation-
ally, violence has made its way into mov-
ies, television, and video games and the
lucrative businesses it engenders show no
immediate sign of slowing down.
But for every person who remains si-
lent, there is another willing to find a solu-
tion.
The Boys and Girls club in Belle Glade
has helped numerous plenty of young
men and women graduate from high
school and move forward to achieve their
goals.
Established in 1994, The Boys and
Girls club has expanded into six school
sites and one permanent building in the
Glades' area.

two men became friends. Several
years ago, Wynn purchased the
property on North Main Street as
an investment and opened Wynn
Performance Engines. Wynn han-
dles the finances and Navarro is
the head mechanic at the shop.
Wynn began to notice the
farmers and laborers in the field
during his daily commute on State
Road 80.
"I need to paint that," he said.
And he did.

to other students is to listen to their parents
and work hard in school-it will get them far.







Recognizing National Influenza Vaccination Week


Free HiNi-Flu vaccines are
still available

By Pat Dobbins
Happy New Year and welcome to 2010!
Now that the New Year has begun and as
we are heading back to work and school set-
tings, it is more important than ever to think
about getting the H1N1-Flu vaccine.
January 10 to 16, 2010 is National Influ-
enza Vaccination Week (NIVW), and now
is the perfect time to understand the impor-
tance of being vaccinated.
You may hear on the news that cases of
H1N1-Flu have been decreasing, but please
think about getting an H1N1 vaccination for
you and your family members.
"Please do not be complacent about pro-
tecting yourself and your families from H 1N I
infection" said Pat Dobbins, Administrator
for the Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments. "This virus continues to cause
serious illness and deaths."
Flu experts warn that we should prepare
for a possible third wave of H1N1-Flu.
There is ample supply of the vaccine and
the Center for Disease Control and Preven-
tion (CDC) has announced that the vaccine


is now open to everyone (all ages).
Most people 6 months and older can get
the vaccine. Be sure to let your health care
provider know if you or your child has an
allergy to eggs, any other allergies, or any
medical conditions.
Please remember that the seasonal flu
vaccine will not protect you from the H1N1
Flu.
The 2009 H1N1-Flu Vaccine is made the
same way as seasonal flu vaccines. Millions
of seasonal flu vaccines have been given
safely and millions of people have all ready
safely received the H 1 N 1-Flu Vaccine.
For those who may be hesitant to receive
the vaccine by injection, healthy people from
ages 2 years to 49 years have the option to
choose a nasal spray form of the vaccine.
Also keep in mind that children aged 9
years and under will need a second dose 30
days after receiving the first dose to ensure
the vaccine will be more effective for them.
The following schedule has been set up
in the communities of Hendry and Glades so
that you may bring in your family members
to get their free H1N 1-Flu Vaccination:

National Influenza Vaccination Week highlights the importance of getting vac-

is on the decline, experts still encourage residents to get their vaccines.

Celebrating Arbor Day in the state of Florida


Residents of Florida will celebrate Arbor
Day 2010 on January 15. While National Ar-
bor Day is held on the last Friday in April,
several states, including Florida, observe the
holiday at a time best suited for tree planting
for their residents. The best way to celebrate
Arbor Day is to plant trees. The Arbor Day
Foundation's Web site (www.arborday.org)
offers many helpful tips to celebrate the tree-
planters' holiday, from how to plant a tree to
selecting the right tree for the right place.
To find out which trees grow best in Flor-
ida, consult the Arbor Day Foundation's Har-
diness Zone Map at www.arborday.org/tree-
info. Florida has 138 cities and towns that
were honored by the Arbor Day Foundation
as a Tree City USA community. Tree City USA
recognizes communities that are committed
to its trees. More than 135 million Americans
live in a Tree City USA community. To see
a list of Tree City USA communities, go to


www.arborday.org/programs.
The first Arbor Day was celebrated in
Nebraska on April 10, 1872, thanks to a
resolution proposed by Nebraska City, Neb.,
resident J. Sterling Morton. Morton, a civic
leader, agriculturist, and former newspaper
editor, urged Nebraskans to "set aside one
day to plant trees, both forest and fruit."
Today, Arbor Day is observed in all 50
states and in countries around the world.
The cabbage palmetto, sabal palmetto,
was adopted as Florida's state tree in 1953.
In 1970 the state legislature passed that a
palmetto tree should be featured on the
state seal instead of a cocoa palm.
Known for its many uses, including med-
icine and food as well as landscaping, the
palm has the ability to grow in almost any
soil.
This palm is also the most widely distrib-
uted palm in Florida.

FWC: Cold weather means pythons are sunning


During this cold snap in South Florida,
Burmese pythons in the wild may be out sun-
ning themselves in an effort to stay warm.
And that means hunters out in four South
Florida wildlife management areas (WMAs)
should be on the lookout for the unwanted,
nonnative species.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) reminds hunters
that they may continue to take Burmese
pythons and all other reptiles of concern
within four South Florida WMAs during the
normal course of hunting during the areas'
small-game seasons.
All properly licensed and permitted hunt-
ers have the authority, if they wish, to har-
vest pythons and other reptiles of concern
(Indian python, reticulated python, northern
and southern African rock python, amethys-
tine or scrub python, green anaconda and


Nile monitor lizard) on Everglades, Francis S.
Taylor, Holey Land and Rotenberger WMAs
and Big Cypress National Preserve during
specified hunting seasons.
Small-game seasons on all four manage-
ment areas continue through March 7. On
Big Cypress, however, the small-game sea-
son ends Feb. 1.
In all four WMAs, only a Florida hunting
license and management area permit are re-
quired to hunt reptiles of concern from now
through the end of the small-game seasons.
"During the warm-weather months, Bur-
mese pythons stay hidden out of the sun,
but with the temperatures dipping below
normal in these areas, they have to find a
way to stay warm," said Jenny Tinnell, FWC
biologist with the exotic species section.
"They may be out in the open more than
before to find the warmth of the sun, and


we hope hunters, in the normal course of
hunting in these areas, will take advantage
of the opportunity to help stop the spread of
this nonnative species."
With the exception of the small-game
season in the Deep Lake Unit of Big Cypress
(where only bows and muzzleloaders are al-
lowed), hunters may use shotguns, rimfire
rifles and handguns to take pythons.
Nets and snares also may be used, but
no matter the method of take, all reptiles of
concern must be euthanized on site.
Reptiles of concern may not be taken
out of the wildlife management areas alive
and must be reported to the FWC within 36
hours by calling, toll-free, 866-392-4286, or
going to MyFWC.com and selecting "Bur-
mese pythons" in the "Quick Clicks" menu.
However, any reptile of concern taken
from Big Cypress must be checked in at one


of the area's six check stations.
Hunters may do what they wish with the
reptiles' skin and meat. However, according
to the National Park Service, mercury testing
on two dozen captured Burmese pythons in
Everglades National Park revealed extraor-
dinarily high levels of mercury in the meat
- well above levels considered safe to eat in
freshwater fish and alligators.
Officials estimate there are thousands of
Burmese pythons in the wild in South Flor-
ida.
The FWC's goal is to contain the spread
of these pythons in the wild and prevent
establishment of other reptiles of concern.
Data collected by hunters on these state-
managed lands will assist in preventing their
northward movement.

A Walk in the Past: 'The Battle of Okeechobee'


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
General Jesup's military tactics employed
mobile units that operated independently of
one another. These probing units were suc-
cessful in ferreting Seminoles from hide-
outs that lay deep in the Florida swamps.
The constant harassment forced many of
the Seminoles to engage in open skirmishes
while, at the same time, pressured the out-
manned and outgunned Seminoles to seek
refuge from the soldiers by retreating into
South Florida.
General Jesup once stated that he and
the American people knew as little about
Florida as they did China and how right he
was. If Jesup's analogy of North and Cen-
tral Florida was likened to China, then he
probably thought of South Florida as being
comparable to the moon, since no white
American had ever surveyed, much less ex-
plored, the liquid land that we now call the
Everglades.
In 1837, the famous Cartographer, John
Williams, made a military map of Florida.
However, he excluded one minor detail
from the map, a large lake that according
to legend lay nestled in the back waters of
South Florida.
Tales abounded about this vast legendary
lake because no white American had ever
ventured into South Florida to vindicate the
lake's existence. This fallacy would soon be
corrected by Colonel Zachary Taylor.
Colonel Taylor had served in the War of
1812 and the Black Hawk War of 1832, be-
fore entering service in the Florida Theater.
In 1837, General Jesup assigned the First
Infantry Regiment, commanded by General
Taylor, the task of patrolling the area be-
tween the Peace River and the Kissimmee
River.
The 1 st Infantry settled into a daily routine
and constructed a fort called Fort Gardner
along the Kissimmee River, while assigned
to this sector.
This routine changed abruptly on Decem-
ber 19, 1837, when Colonel Taylor received
permission from General Jesup to march
south and search for Seminoles.
General Taylor marched his army out
of Fort Gardener the same day he received
the marching papers. During the first day's
march, the famous Seminole Chief Jumper
and his people walked in and surrendered.
The following day, the slow moving army
surprised and captured several camps of
Seminoles as it prodded ever deeper into the
unknown.
On the third day, Taylor ordered the con-
struction of a small stockade because the
area was becoming more impenetrable and
slowing the advance of his bulky army.
The heavy baggage and cannons were to
be stored at the hastily built stockade that he
named Fort Basinger.
It should be noted that Fort Gardener and
Fort Basinger were named after officers that
died in Dade's Massacre.
General Taylor's army was approximately
1,000 men strong. Roughly 700 of these men
were Army regulars, while the rest were ei-
ther volunteers or Indians. Two hundred and
twenty of the volunteers were from Missouri,
under the command of Colonel Gentry.


The Missouri volunteers became involved
in the Seminole War after president-elect,
Martin Van Buren and Thomas Hart Benton,
a senator from Missouri had "a good ole
boy" conversation.
Benton reportedly said, "If the Seminoles
had the Missourians to deal with, their stay
in Florida would be short." After Martin
Van Buren defeated Andrew Jackson in the
presidential election and became president,
he remembered Senator Benton's boast
and asked if some Missourians would travel
to Florida and fight the Seminoles. Senator
Benton replied, "The Missourians will go
wherever their services are needed."
According to all accounts, the Missou-
rians were tough and looking for a fight.
While Taylor was resting his troops at Fort
Bassinger, several Missourians spotted Semi-
noles when taking their horses to pasture.
They informed Colonel Gentry, who crossed
the Kissimmee River and prepared his men
for battle.
A mad Taylor rode up and told Colonel
Gentry, "that was the way with these volun-
teers, they were always too forward when
not wanted, and always behind when they
were."
Taylor went on to say, "that he had but lit-
tle confidence in him (Gentry) or his troops,
that from that time if he or any other of his
officers disobeyed his orders they would be
punished to the full extent of the law."
On December 23, 1837, General Taylor
left approximately 200 men at Fort Bassinger
and proceeded south. He traveled seven
miles the first day. The next day it rained
most of the day.
Despite the rain, Taylor's army surprised
a small band of Seminoles and captured
them.
On Christmas morning, December 25,
1837, Taylor marched his men through a
section of pinelands and stumbled upon nu-
merous Seminole chickees.
Taylor and his men knew the Seminoles
had to be in the area and went on the alert.
At about 11 a.m. the army reached a
hammock that had a small creek running in
front of it.
Everyone feared an ambush, so General
Taylor ordered the Missourians to cross first.
After they had crossed safely, he sent the
Army regulars across.
The Missourians were unhappy with Tay-
lor's leadership because they felt he was
sparing his Army regulars a hail of hot lead,
while making the volunteers good candi-
dates for cannon fodder.
Not long afterward, troops captured a
Seminole on horseback. He was questioned
and reported there were many warriors
waiting for the troops at a large hammock
only one mile away.
Taylor held a war council and planned
his attack. He would march two lines of sol-
diers to the hammock. The first line would
be made up of volunteers, while the second
and third lines would be Army regulars.
Missouri Volunteer, Colonel Gentry, ques-
tioned the frontal approach that used the
European conventional line of attack and
suggested that Taylor out flank the Seminole
held hammock and attack it from all posi-
tions.
General Taylor said, "Colonel Gentry, are


you afraid to attack their center?" to which
Gentry replied, "No, sir. If that is your order,
it will be done that way."
The Seminoles had prepared a loud wel-
coming committee for General Taylor and
his men. Seminole leaders, Sam Jones, Al-
ligator and Coacoochee, (who had escaped
imprisonment under a flag of truce) had pre-
pared the killing ground.
Notches were cut in the cypress trees to
steady the Indians' aim, while a corridor of
sawgrass was cut through the slough, so
that it led to the center of the hammock
It is estimated that nearly 400 Seminole
warriors waited patiently for the arrival of
the American forces. Sam Jones command-
ed half of the Seminoles and was in charge
of the hammocks right wing that faced the
Americans, while Alligator commanded
120 Seminoles in the hammock's center. A
vengeful Coacoochee commanded 80 Semi-
noles on the left wing.
The Missourians and other volunteers ad-
vanced in the first line with the 6th Infantry
following 50 yards behind them.
The 4th Infantry was 50 yards behind the
6th Infantry in a third advancing line, while
General Taylor's 1st Infantry stayed behind
as a reserve.
When the first line of Missourians and
other volunteers were 100 yards from the
hammock, they were met with a tremen-
dous volley that raked their line.
Colonel Gentry, who was leading the Mis-
sourians, encouraged the volunteers to con-
tinue advancing and was wounded shortly
afterward.
The Seminole's withering fire was so in-
tense that it was likened to a scythe as the
bullets mowed the Sawgrass down. Stand-
ing up in the withering fire, Colonel Gentry
ordered the men to fight, lying down in the
Sawgrass.
Colonel Gentry was shot fatally in the
abdomen as he continued to encourage the
volunteers to move forward.
The 6th Infantry, which was behind the
volunteer line, started receiving lethal fire as
they entered the 100 yard killing zone.
The Missourians lay hidden in the
Sawgrass as they reloaded and fired, while
the 6th Infantrymen remained standing in a
long line of blue as they advanced loading
and firing their guns.
The murderous fire from the Seminole
rifles started tearing great gaps through the
advancing line of blue.
Soon the advancing 6th Infantry caught
up with the Missouri volunteers, who were
crawling slowly in the protective cover of the
Sawgrass toward the hammock.
The Seminoles intense and accurate fire
became so lethal to the closing 6th Infantry
that it began to fall back despite the fatally
wounded Colonel Gentry's encouragement
to continue the attack.
The retreating 6th Infantry spread pan-
demonium among the Missouri volunteers,
who started following suite.
Shouting Seminoles surged from the
hammock and began to press the attack as
they scalped fallen Infantry and volunteers.
Retreating men from the 6th Infantry as well
as the Missourians rallied and countered at-
tacked, finally driving the Seminoles back to
the hammock.


The 4th Infantry, which had been behind
the 6th continued to move forward. The
combined forces of the Army regulars and
volunteers eventually drove the Seminoles
from their hammock stronghold back into
the Everglades.
The Battle of Lake Okeechobee was
bloodiest battle the Army fought during the
Second Seminole War. General Taylor's ca-
sualties were 26 dead and 112 wounded.
No one is sure of the Seminole losses in
this battle. This battle was the final blow to
the Seminoles because they never waged
war on this scale again.

Religious columns


Through Jesus Christ, our
Lord, amen period!!!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I've listened to people say "Happy Holi-
days" and there have been times during the
Christmas season (Yes, I said "Christmas"
season) when they've greeted me that way.
People usually know that I believe in cel-
ebrating Christmas and, curiously, some of
those who greeted me with "Happy Holi-
days" also share my faith!
I imagine that a generic expression of
good will is better than none; but there is
a time when sharing oneself is even better.
I've been called upon to give prayers, usually
blessings and invocations, at meetings and
public events. It happens to all clergy.
The reason may go back to their be-
ing the most appropriate ones to express
the sentiments, thoughts, reflections of the
group for asking God's presence-blessing-
intervention-guidance.
At this point, the choice is to be "generic"
or "who I am and what makes me the one
who may be the most appropriate person in
the room to offer such a prayer. I take it that,
when asked, I am called upon to bring all
of the resources, traditions, thoughts to bear
on what I have to offer.
It isn't "Do you want a watered-down
version of me" but "I am honored by your
calling on me-I'll do my best to be who I
am for you." On many occasions, I've been
in the presence of others who do not share
my faith: their leading in prayer can be quite
edifying and I accept and adapt what is of-
fered.
I've attended worship occasions in Amer-
indian languages; not understanding a word
of what was offered; I shared in the tenor of
the service but I did not know or understand
the context of the service.
Likewise, when I've attended services
in German; getting some words here and
there; and drawing as much as I could be-
cause I wanted to be at least in part con-
tributing to the communal worship where I
found myself.
I do better in French; where I've spent
time building a Church in that language;
and certainly better in English. The mes-
sages throughout are "The doors are open;
come and share our ways of doing things,
our beliefs, our message."
My tacit reply is "Thank you, I will, but
please don't water it down because I am
with you today." My tradition includes the
One who says "I have come that they may
have life, and have it abundantly (John
10:10)."
Wish me a "Happy whatever..." and I
will see that it comes from who you are; I'll
adapt it, accept it as offered with my own un-
derstandings, take it as a good will intention
on your part. But don't offer me something
less; that's not really who you are or who
I really am. From our traditions we should
have respect for the beliefs of others and this
is how it should be; but in turn we should be


respected as well. Enough said!

Everyone Needs a Buddy
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I wonder if the Scripture saying "what-
ever you did for the least of these, you did
for me" applies to animals?
Buddy came into our lives riding in
the engine block of a delivery truck to the
church. When the truck left, I thought at first
the kitten had been run over. I picked him
up by the scruff of his neck and said, "Hey
buddy, are you okay?" Fortunately, he was,
and the name stuck.
I wasn't planning to keep Buddy, but we
fell in love with him. Strangest of all, how-
ever, was that my dog Pepper adopted the
kitten as her own. When you give yourself
for the benefit of others, your life is enriched
as is theirs.
So it is with Pepper and Buddy. She be-
came his care-taker and protector. They
still play with each other today, and Buddy
learned to fetch and beg food like his ad-
opted mom.
There is truth in the prayer of St. Francis
where it states, "For it is in giving that we re-
ceive." Everyone needs a "buddy" to come
into their lives. We receive a blessing when
we encounter and help those in need that
cross our path. We should pray for such op-
portunities. Be prepared, however, for God
might answer our prayers in an unexpected
way!
A pastor found a kitten up a tree in his
backyard that was afraid to come down. The
tree wasn't sturdy enough to climb, so the
pastor decided to tie a rope to his car and
the tree, and then back up until the tree bent
over enough for him to reach the kitten.
But as he backed up, the rope broke and
the tree snapped back, sending the kitten
sailing through the air out of sight.
The pastor felt terrible and walked the
neighborhood asking people if they'd seen
the kitten. Nobody had, so he prayed, "Lord,
I commit this kitten to your keeping," and
then went back to work.
A few days later at the grocery store, he
met one of his church members and hap-
pened to look in her shopping cart. Knowing
she didn't like cats, he was surprised to see
cat food in her cart, so he asked her about
it.
She replied, "You won't believe this," and
told him how her little girl had been begging
for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few
days before, the child had begged again, so
the Mom finally told her, "If God gives you a
cat, I'll let you keep it."
She continued, "Pastor, I watched my
child go out in the yard, get on her knees,
and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you
won't believe this, but I saw it with my own
eyes. A kitten suddenly came flying out of
the blue sky, with its paws outspread, and
landed right in front of her."

Strange, weird, crazy,
bazaar!


By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
A fellow preacher that I admire reported
that he recently typed in his name on an in-
ternet spot and when the reply came in it
had his phone number and address
But the most amazing thing about the
knowledge the computer had to say about
him was the category under which he was
listed. Above his name in large print it said
PEOPLE WHO ARE STRANGE, WEIRD,
CRAZY AND BAZAAR.
He wondered how they found out he be-
longed in that category. But when he found
the source he was rather complimented that
he was listed in this category. After all the
opinion of the computer is the world view
of things.
He said he could understand why he was
listed as strange, weird, crazy and bazaar.
For one thing he has the view that two men
or two women getting married to each other
is the most low down, rotten, stinking, thing
that two humans could do.
The world view of this procedure is that it
is an acceptable life style. So from the stand
point in their view he was definitely strange,
weird, crazy and bazaar.
For another thing he has the view that
two people living together in what they call
a relationship (shacked up) are immoral
whoremongers and/or fornicators. Others
excuse the problem by making the asinine
remark: "But this is a new century." Since


this is the world view he said he really did
belong in the category of strange, weird,
crazy and bazaar.
Perhaps the view that he had of sports is
the one that really does me in, he said. In my
view America has made a god of sports. In
ancient Rome one of the signs of decadence
was the love of sports. Christians sometimes
had to enter the arena to fight wild beasts.
Today is the same only worse.
Ancient Christians did not want to be
devoured by wild beasts, but modern Chris-
tians enjoy the ordeal. Some are devoured
by the Nitany Lions. How about the Detroit
Tigers. Then there are the Bengals, actually
the Bengals don't do much damage.
Some arenas have a low budget and can-
not afford lions and tigers so they use wild-
cats. I understand they turn five of them lose
at one time. I will spare you the details of
how some suffer as the go into the arena
with the bears, the bulls, the rams, the bull-
dogs and the gators.
He said, In my view most of the quote
Christians unquote have a greater love for
the lions, tigers, wildcats, bears, bulls, rams,
bulldogs and gators, than they do for the
LAMB.
And so, he said, dear friends it should
come as no surprise that I found my name
listed on the Internet in the category of those
who are STRANGE, WEIRD, CRAZY, AND
BAZAAR. All I can say is "'Amen"!

"Farming is the backbone of America. I
see it as the basis of the economy and the
foundation of our country. Without it, you
could do nothing. I have respect for the farm-
ers and laborers. I'm proud to be around it,"
Wynn said.
He observes and photographs the work-


Youth
Continued From Page 1

Its representatives don't ignore the issue.
"Teen violence throughout the U.S. has
increased, not just in Belle Glade," said Mary
0' Connor, CEO of the Boys and Girls club.
"I believe the reason for the increase is the
lack of opportunities and things to do for the
kids. Children are being left unsupervised in
situations with no one to guide them. That is
not helping the problem, either."
The Boys and Girls club's programs de-
ter teens from negative behaviors, including
drug use, teen pregnancy, and teen violence.
They specialize in six core areas: education
and career choices, character building and
leadership, sports and fitness, health and life
skills, the arts, and technology.
In Mary 0' Connor's 20 years of experi-
ence, she has noticed a drop in crime rate
and a higher graduation rate of those who
participated in the Boys and Girls club.
She encourages parents to take advan-
tage of the program and what it offers.


Taking a Stand
Kenneth Jackson has been an active
member in the Glades community since
1985. After teaching middle school students
for 11 years, Kenneth created an organiza-
tion called StreetBeat that has guided youth
through song and dance.
"Teen violence is so common in the
Glades today because we have a culture that
permits violence. Movies and music all seem
to reward that kind of behavior today." Mr.
Jackson said.


ers in the field. He likes to capture the move- chase, but he gives most of them away.


ment in his painting and agonizes over the
details.
As he sits in the shop, he critiques his
own work hanging on the walls. He points
to a painting of the Sugar Cane Growers Co-
operative Mill that he sketched at least four
times.
"I don't usually get it right the first time."
Wynn has turned his collection of Glades
area artwork into a calendar for the 2010
year. The calendars are available for pur-


"Pressure for boys not to be sissies in the
community is another reason," he contin-
ued. "They turn to violence as a means of
expressing themselves."
According to Mr. Jackson, more and
more grandparents find themselves in the
position of caring for their grandchildren, for
any number of reason that the child's par-
ents cannot. With their advanced age, many
simply are unable to keep up with their
grandchild's life.
These are the men and women who
should be looked up to, and offered help,
officials say.
"This is a problem that we all have to
chip in to correct," said Mr. Jackson.
He urges area churches to participate.
"Churches need stop pointing fingers at
the problem and start working together to
find a solution," he said. "If each church
commits to educating 5 or 10 teens, Belle
Glade will experience a huge impact since
there are churches on every street corner."
But he also pleads to teens.
"Kids need to learn how to be kind to one
another ... start telling others when wrong is
being done," he said.


Leader of the Pack
Like Father like son, David Jackson is
also hoping to be a part of the change in
the Glades. David is a senior at Glades Day
School and for the last 12 years has partici-
pated in StreetBeat, working with children
between the ages of 5 and 18. He talks to
them about God and about making the right
choices. "Teen violence is created from bot-
tled up anger and bad decision making," the
younger Jackson said. "People are afraid to
acknowledge this growing problem."

A customer enters the store to pick up his
vehicle. Wynn greets the man with a hello
and offers him a calendar. As Wynn walks
out of the office, the man flips through the
pages and admires the paintings.
"Peter is the man. He can do all kinds of
stuff," he says.
Wynn believes it is important to capture
the essence of the Glades area and commu-
nities.
"People love the art. They love their art.


But David says he isn't.
He has plans to return after he graduates
from college to continue being an influence
to children through music and ministry.
"My dad has influenced me in every way,"
he says. "Being able to see his passion and
resiliency in the commnrnunity has made me
want to follow in my father's footsteps."


Warning Signs
While school programs, and after school
programs are worthy in the fight against teen
violence, they cannot do the whole job. Pre-
venting violence depends mainly on under-
standing where and when it originates. Vio-
lent or aggressive behavior is learned early
