2010 MLK Parade


Remembering the Dream
The Glades Central marching band performed during this year's MLK Parade in Belle
Glade.


There were plenty of participants in the parade, helping to Sororities and other groups
honor the memory of the slain civil rights leader, Dr. Martin were glad to take part in the
Luther King Jr. Belle Glade parade.

Residents wait to

in Haiti
By Nina G. Wills
Special to The Sun
"Papa mouri. Papa mouri,"
Madeleine Sainteius cried out as
tears streamed down her face.
"She said her father died,"
someone translated.
Sainteius entered St. John's
Missionary Baptist Church in Belle
Glade overwhelmed by the news
she received late Monday night.
After the tragic earthquake in Haiti
on Jan. 12, Santeius had been anx-
iously waiting to hear from her par-
ents and her siblings living in Port-
au-Prince. Sainteius spoke to her
mother, who told Sainteius that her
father did not survive and her sister
and brother suffered broken bones
and severe head injuries.
Sainteius sits down at a table
and buries her face in her hands.
As she begins to weep, a group of
people sit beside her speaking in
their native tongue of Creole. The
gathering at St. John's Missionary
Baptist Church is spontaneous,
and this small group looks to each
other for comfort and support as
they tell their stories.

A walk in the past: For Taylor, a bitter sweet victory


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
On December 25, 1837, General Zachary
Taylor's Army fought the Seminoles in the
bloodiest battle of the Second Seminole In-
dian War.
This battle was called the Battle of
Okeechobee and was fought near the pres-
ent day City of Okeechobee.
The U.S. Army causalities in this engage-
ment were 26 dead and 112 wounded,
while the Seminole causalities are really un-
known.
The Seminole leaders, who participated
in the battle, were great tacticians that care-
fully prepared a defensive position close to
the shores of Lake Okeechobee.
Their strategic planning resulted in a
technical win because they inflicted more
damage on the American forces.
However, from a logistical perspective,
the Seminoles were driven from the field of
battle, making the U.S. Army the victor.
The Battle of Okeechobee was celebrat-
ed by the nation as a victory, while Taylor
at best celebrated the battle as a hollow vic-
tory.
He lamented the loss of his men and after
the battle said, "I may be permitted to say,
that I experienced one of the most trying
scenes of my life, and he who could have
looked on it with indifference, his nerves
must have been very differently organized
from my own.
"Besides the killed, among whom were
some of my personal friends, there lay one-
hundred and twelve wounded officers and
soldiers, who had accompanied me 145
miles, most of the way through unexplored
wilderness."
Victory for Taylor was indeed bitter
sweet.
The American public ushered Taylor into
the Nation's limelight as a hero, while the
U.S. Army later bequeathed the honor of
Brigadier General on him.
The Okeechobee victory was the begin-
ning of a triumphal road that would one day
lead Taylor to the office of President.
However, the road wasn't without bumps
because Taylor was soon engaged, defend-
ing his actions at the Battle of Okeechobee.
Colonel Taylor never had a love for vol-
unteers during the Second Seminole Indian
War.
His sentiments were shared by many
Army officers, who viewed volunteers as un-
trained and unreliable when the going got
rough.
However, the demands for soldiers dur-
ing the Second Seminole War far outstripped
the supply of available Army Regulars, so
commanders in the Florida Theater were
forced to command and tolerate volunteers,
who in their opinion failed to meet military
standards.
Shortly after the battle on January 4,
1838, Taylor expressed his disgruntled feel-
ings about the "volunteer soldiers" when he
wrote his report on the Battle of Okeecho-
bee.
In the report he stated that the Missouri-
ans had broken and retired.
The Secretary of War, Joel Roberts Poin-
sett, was asked to submit a report on the


battle to the United States Congress, so he
recorded Taylor's lack of praise for the Mis-
sourians in his report, which was submitted,
February 14, 1838.
The State of Missouri didn't take kindly to
Taylor's words.
An angry Missouri State Legislature re-
sponded to Taylor's accusations by passing
a resolution.
The resolution requested a court of in-
quiry.
Numerous officers and enlisted men,
who had fought in the Battle of Okeechobee,
were asked to give their sworn statements.
Several valid points were made during
the investigation.
One point made was Colonel Gentry's
statement to Colonel Taylor that a frontal as-
sault was unwise and a flanking maneuver
more prudent.
Today, historians agree that the Battle of
Okeechobee could have been a decisive vic-
tory for Taylor had he outflanked the Semi-
noles and cut off their escape routes.
The Seminoles would have suffered a
major defeat and the war brought to an ear-
lier end.
Another point made in the inquiry was
why did Colonel Taylor put volunteers on
the front line?
The Missouri volunteers were inexperi-
enced and untested in battle, so why would
Taylor use them as front-line soldiers?
Many of the Missourians that fought in
the battle accused Taylor of protecting his
Army regulars at the volunteer's expense.
On February 20, 1838, the United States
Senate met and Secretary of War, Poinsett
said, "No blame can rightly be attached to
Taylor for placing the volunteers in the front
ranks."
Taylor was found not guilty, but you can
bet Taylor got few votes in Missouri years lat-
er, when he campaigned to be the President
of the United States.
Colonel Taylor was promoted to General
and later took General Jesup's position as
commander of the U.S. Army forces in the
Florida Theater.
Taylor would distinguished himself in the
Mexican American War and become Presi-
dent of the United States in 1848.
United States History remembers Taylor
for his term as President, while Glades Histo-
ry will always remember him as the Colonel,
who fought the Seminoles in the "Battle of
Okeechobee" and placed a Legendary Lake
called "Lake Okeechobee" on the Florida
map.
Today, a small, meandering creek that
flows slowly into Lake Okeechobee is
named in Taylor's honor.
The creek is called Taylor Creek and is lo-
cated on the north side of the Lake.
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

Clewiston.

Bronson urges citizens to avoid Haiti relief scams


TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson today warned Floridians to be
on the lookout for scams involving relief
aid in the aftermath of this week's massive
earthquake in Haiti.
"The people in Haiti need massive
amounts of aid, and we encourage our citi-
zens to be as generous as possible in help-
ing," Bronson said.
"But you need to make sure that the do-
nations you are planning to make go to le-
gitimate organizations that will benefit Haiti,
and not to con artists who undoubtedly will
try to exploit the tragedy by lining their own
pockets with your donations."
While no known scams have yet to be un-
covered in Florida, con artists typically come
out of the woodwork when tragedies oc-
cur and approach citizens with impressive-
sounding organizations that seek money


over the internet, by phone and sometimes
even in person.
"Don't be tricked into giving money to a
person or organization with which you are
not familiar," Bronson said.
Among approaches that the Commis-
sioner recommends is giving to well-known
organizations, including the American Red
Cross, United Way and the Salvation Army
among many others.
If citizens are contemplating making a
contribution to an organization with which
they are unfamiliar, Bronson encourages
that they contact his Consumer Services Di-
vision at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-800-435-7352)
to make sure that the organization is regis-
tered with the state as a charity and to check
its complaint history.
Consumers can also go to the division's
website at http://www.800helpfla.com and
determine an organization's registration sta-

Federal finding signals that Florida


Manatee designation warrants revision


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service an-
nounced today that revising critical habitat
for the Florida manatee is needed, but the
revision process is precluded by higher pri-
ority listing-related actions and funding con-
straints.
Today's decision, commonly known as a
12-month finding, follows a comprehensive
review of all available scientific and com-
mercial information relevant to the revision
of existing critical habitat for the Florida
manatee.
The finding is also the Service's formal
response to the December 2008 revision
petition from the Wildlife Advocacy Project,
Save the Manatee Club, Center for Biological
Diversity, and Defenders of Wildlife.
Critical habitat was originally designated
for the Florida manatee in 1976 in areas of
Citrus, Hillsborough, Manatee, Sarasota,
Charlotte, De Soto, Lee, Collier, Monroe,
Dade, Palm Beach, Martin, West Palm
Beach, Volusia, Brevard, Nassau and Duval
counties.
It was one of the Endangered Species
Act's (Act) first critical habitat designations
for an endangered species and the first for
an endangered marine mammal.
That original critical habitat designation
for the Florida manatee was made before
critical habitat regulations and guidance was
developed.
Therefore, it does not identify those es-


sential features needed for the species con-
servation.
Instead, it describes specific waterways
that were known to be important concen-
tration areas for manatees at that time.
Service biologists also recognize that the
geographic areas originally described as
manatee critical habitat need to be updated,
based on recent scientific studies of manatee
distribution, habitat use, and habitat needs.
Service officials note that a revision of
the critical habitat designation could include
both additions and deletions to the current
designation, and specific areas within and
outside of the geographical area currently
occupied by manatees.
"In addition to the most obvious habitat
needed for the Florida manatee -warm wa-
ter refuges," said Dave Hankla, field super-
visor for the Service's North Florida office
in Jacksonville, "we also may consider ad-
equate forage areas near these refuges, calv-
ing and nursing areas, and important travel
corridors throughout the state."
Critical habitat is a term defined in the
Act.
It identifies geographic areas containing
features essential to the conservation of a
threatened or endangered species that may
require special management considerations
or protection.


The designation of critical habitat does
not affect land ownership or establish a ref-
uge, wilderness, reserve, preserve, or other
conservation area.
It does not allow government or public
access to private lands.
"In this particular case, the Service will
continue to consult with federal agencies
on projects that may impact manatees, re-
gardless of whether these projects occur in
designated critical habitat or not," Hankla
noted.
"Thus, the regulated public will see neg-
ligible change in how we conduct business
under the Act."

manatee and this finding, please visit the

Palm Beach PAL boxers win again


By Steven Tillings
PBSO
Last Saturday, Police Athletic League box-
ing teams from Pahokee and Belle Glade
competed in Boca Raton and won.
Felix Sanchez, 15, who attends Pahokee
Middle/Senior High School, won a decision
against Boca Raton's Adam Moore in a hard-
fought contest.
Sanchez trains at the Palm Beach Sheriff's
PAL boxing gym with his brother, Nicholas.
"The Sanchez brothers have a work ethic
that is second to none," said Deputy Sheriff
Mike LeStrange, who runs the Pahokee PAL
program. "They are in the gym every night
and listen to their coach. The brothers are
highly motivated and determined to suc-
ceed.
"When they enter the gym, they are all
business and all work. It is no surprise why
they are so impressive. I am confident, when
they graduate from high school and college,
that they will be the best at whatever en-
deavor they choose. Again, their work ethic
is second to none. Nicholas has been pro-
moted to team captain."
In addition, Michael Guerrier, 10, who at-
tends Pahokee Elementary School, won a
three-round decision against Broward Sher-
iff's PAL boxer Devon Murphy.
Guerrier dominated rounds two and
three and convincingly won the match.
In addition, Michael is performing well
academically.
Alfredia McCloud, who is the guidance
counselor at Pahokee Elementary, said, "Mi-
chael Guerrier's academic achievement is
very good. His test scores are high."
The boxer's mother, Rosalyn McNeal,
said, "Since Michael has joined the sheriff's
boxing program, his confidence has grown.
He's doing well in school, and he is more
social. Michael attends boxing training every
night."
Belle Glade's boxing brothers Diontae
and Ishmael Altman had great performanc-
es.
Diontae won a three-round decision
against Hollywood's Anton Fundora.

kee PAL boxing program, Deputy LeStrange
said, "First and foremost, to lower juvenile
crime and save kids from the perils of juve-
nile delinquency. Our goals are to coordinate
programs and activities which contribute
to the development of character, integrity,
physical and mental fitness. We want to
foster a closer relationship between law en-
forcement officers and youth. We do this by
promoting sports participation with deputy
sheriff's as a deterrent to crime, drug/alco-
hol abuse and gang membership.
"The PAL boxing program is a team effort
between the community and law enforce-
ment officers. We work closely with Assis-
tant Principal Mary Ford of Pahokee Middle/
High School, the parents and Sergeant Flynn
and his community policing unit. The PBSO
PAL boxing program is an avenue to get
kids off the street and get them under a roof


where they are safe and out of trouble," said
the deputy.

gram, contact LeStrange at 561-254-7773.

Are we too comfortable?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
I live in a nation where my freedom was
(is) purchased the sacrifices of others, there-
fore, many times I forget that political free-
dom is costly and that it was uncomfortable
for those who purchased my freedom.
I live in a home adequate for my needs. It
is warm in the winter, and cool in the sum-
mer.
The rain and snow cannot penetrate its
roofs and walls. But Lord, I did not build that
house. I did not buy one stick of wood or
one brick.
I did not work one hour to construct it.
Loving, considerate, daring people who
lived before me, sacrificed in order that I
might live in such a house.
They became uncomfortable in order
that I might be comfortable sweating in the
hot sun as they labored.
Lord, I worship in a church building I did
not build. It is adequate for my needs, and
the needs of many others.
In fact, Lord, i would accommodate two
or three times as many as customarily attend
services.
Lord, I enjoy a fellowship with You, and
with Christian people. I can lay my head
on my pillow at night and be conscious of
my sins and shortcomings, and at the same
time, be aware that when I confess them as
a Christian, they are forgiven (I John 1:9).
You experienced great suffering and death
that I might be comforted.
Lord, is it possible that I am too comfort-
able? The only reason others are not enjoy-
ing all these things is because I am unwill-
ing to be uncomfortable to help them enjoy
them.
Am I too politically complacent... letting
others shoulder the responsibility to provide
"the land of the free and the home of the
brave"?
Am I impervious of the fact there are hun-
dreds, yes thousands, within a short distance
of this comfortable church building who
need to know You and the salvation that You
alone can give. Am I too comfortable to get
out and make it happen?

Bracing for cold weather:
Physically and spiritually too
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The recent cold snap has come and gone.
The comments I heard had to do with "This
one is longer than usual!" and "We're not
used to this!"
I wondered if it wasn't anything usual
temperature-wise, just the length of the cold
weather that bothered people most.
The "second shoe hits the floor" when
the power bills come in; reverse-cycle A/C
is not the most efficient way of heating and
more expensive than other systems.
Many of the homes in the region are
not prepared for cold: no insulation in the
building, doors are not sealed, windows are
single-paned and walls are thin. Maybe the
problem isn't the temperature but being
prepared for it.


We are prepared for other contingencies
that happen; extra batteries are in the draw-
er for the flashlights when the need arises,
there is some extra food in the refrigerator
for unexpected guests, cars have spare tires,
people have a spare set of glasses, and so
many things are around "just in case."
I lived in harsher climates for a part of
my life; "cold snaps" lasted months. You just
prepared, that's all.
The Boy Scout motto, "Be Prepared",
applies to us all. I've noted that people
who have prepared their "spiritual houses"
weather the hostile seasons of life much bet-
ter, too.
There is a certain amount of "insulation"
that comes from having faith and the prac-
tice of it as a regular part of living.
This is the "house built on rock" spoken
of in Matthew's gospel (chapter 7, v 24ff).
I've noted that those who panic when times
are hard feel they have no place to turn;
their cry is 'Ain't it awful!" (and it is awful
for them.)
Those who have prepared for the hard
times in life look at what is happening and
say "We'll get through this together, Lord,
you've gotten us through in the past and I
know you won't let us down this time!"
Faith means that there is a responsibility
on our part to prepare in advance for what
may come.
There is a practice of faith, but there is
also a storehouse of food, a few dollars
set aside, saving something that otherwise
might be discarded for future use, learning
how to do things ourselves rather than pay-
ing to have them done.
When our recent cold snap hit, I decided
that it wasn't the end of the world, I'd been
through them before, I had what it took to
weather the chilly days, and that it would
come to an end.
Preparations keep us from being unhap-
py and complaining about what we can't
change anyway, get us through the hard
spots in life, let us be forward-looking and
more hopeful than those who get bogged
down in the present moment only, and ap-
ply to us in all parts of life.
Practicing and living by faith takes us
through even in the coldest, darkest or sad-
dest of moments; in our physical homes and
spiritual ones too.

Faith is Our Victory
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Through the grace of God we have been
promised the incredible possibility of a real,
live relationship with the divine.
Our appropriate response to this rela-
tionship is one of faith a faith that gets us
through the upheavals and earthquakes of
life.
The word "faith" is one of the most widely
used words in the NT. It is found in the First
Testament through the verbal root aman, or
as we would translate the word, 'Amen."
This word "faith" or "amen" originally
expressed for the Hebrew people the idea
of carrying, bearing, or supporting, such as
a doorpost bearing pillars.
Yahweh is called the "God of Amen." God
is the solid base, the rock, the support, the
"Amen," upon which life must be raised.


Belief is an act of the intellect. Faith,
on the other hand, is an experience of the
whole person.
We may believe that God has the whole
world in his hands, but faith is the act of
trust by which we put ourselves into God's
hands.
Faith is more than knowing that God
is something, it's knowing that God does
something.
Faith is our victory. Victory comes in be-
lieving God enough to step out in faith. The
rest is commentary.
Victory for Joshua took place not when
the walls of Jericho came tumbling down.
The real victory occurred when Joshua
believed, as incredible as it seemed, that
God would do something great that day.
The moment Joshua took that first step
around Jericho, and blew that first horn, the
battle had already been won.
The rest was commentary. The victory
for David was not when he slew the giant
Goliath.
The real victory for David was the miracle
of faith. The moment David took that first
step down into that valley, and expressed his


faith in God's promise with his feet, the vic-
tory was won. The rest was commentary.
The miracle of Peter's walking on water
was not how far he got without sinking.
The real miracle occurred when Peter
lifted his leg over the side of the boat and
stepped out into the deep unknown. That
step was the miracle of faith. The rest was
commentary.
The Bible says we are to live by faith. In
biblical terms, it is more accurate to think of
faith as an active term (being faithful) than
in a passive tense (having faith).
We come with faith as Christians, believ-
ing enough to ask who would cast the first
stone; to reassure the woman at the well
that her life could change; to sit with sinners
and eat with the rich; to believe that right
will triumph and that temples and systems
can change, and to claim that "God is our
refuge and strength, an ever-present help in
trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the
earth give way and the mountains fall into
the heart of the sea." (Psalm 46)

School District Launching Haiti Relief Effort Among Employees


District Has 500 Haitian
Employees, 16,000 Haitian
Students

The School District Family is rallying to
help in the relief effort for Haiti in the after-
math of that nation's worse earthquake in
200 years.
Our Superintendent, Chief of Staff Ann
Killets and Chief Operating Officer Joe Moore
are meeting on this and send their thoughts


and prayers to all involved. Dr. Johnson and
Ms. Killets have identified the schools with
the highest percentages of Haitian students,
some as high as 86%, and are directing grief
counselors to those school. They are also ac-
tively providing leadership on relief efforts
district-wide.
Public Affairs is receiving numerous
communications from employees and oth-
ers offering assistance and advice on how
district employees may be able to help. A
work group has been established to provide
direction and organization. Additional infor-


mation with our plan and who to contact is
being developed at this hour to send to all
employees today.
We will be asking for your suggestions
for what is needed and which organizations
the district may want to partner with to get
the money and supplies to Haiti.
The District has more than 13,000 Haitian
students-nearly 8% of our student popula-
tion. The school district, the largest employ-
er in the county, employs more than 500
Haitians. They range from administrators,
teachers, guidance counselors, translators/


interpreters, language facilitators, techni-
cians, secretaries, clerks, custodial workers
and other jobs, supporting the school sys-
tem with their cultural and linguistic back-
ground and strong work ethic.
There are more than 60,000 Haitians in
Palm Beach County, and practically all of
our Haitian employees and their country-
men have family members in Haiti. At this
time, they are focused on communications
to reach their loved ones, and they will be
guiding us as to what is needed to help in
the relief efforts.

Lyver's Fund At First

Christian
On Jan. 8th the mobile home of Bob and
Linda Lyers was gutted by fire.
They lost most of their personal belong-
ings. The Lyvers have two children Jesse,
age 13, and Katie, age 15.
The Red Cross made it possible for them
to stay in a motel for a few days and gave
them clothing allowances.
Judy Vann is allowing them to stay in
rental property until they get another home.
First Christian Church has started a Fund
to help the Lyvers with their needs.
There is an immediate need for beds and
bedding. If you would like to help with this
emergency you may make your checks pay-
able to "First Christian Church" For Lyver's
Fund.
For information you may call 983-1804.

Florida Citrus Hall of Fame



Announces its list of 2010 Inductees ...


The Selection Committee for The Florida
Citrus Hall of Fame has announced four dis-
tinguished leaders will be inducted into the
Hall as part of the 2010 class.
Earl M. "Duke" Crittenden (deceased) of
Orlando, Bernard A. Egan (deceased) of Ft.
Pierce, Harold B. McTeer of Winter Haven
and Howard E. Sorrells of Arcadia will be
honored during luncheon scheduled on Fri-
day March 5, 2010 at 11:30 a.m. in the Hollis
Wellness Center at Florida Southern College
in Lakeland.
Crittenden, former President and CEO
of Crittenden Fruit Company, has been de-
scribed as one of "the giants of the Florida
Citrus Industry."
He worked in citrus for more than 50
years starting from scratch and emerging
with a diversified citrus empire that included
growing, harvesting, packing, processing
and trucking.
A former chairman of the Republican
Party of Florida, Crittenden was a major po-
litical force, protecting the industry on key
issues.
He was a member of the Florida Citrus
Commission in addition to serving on the
boards of Florida Citrus Mutual, Seald-Sweet
Growers, Citrus Central Inc. and the Grow-
ers Administrative Committee.
Crittenden was a 1953 graduate of the
University of Florida. He was an honorary
member of the Florida Blue Key, the univer-
sity's prestigious public service fraternity,
and a charter member of the UF Bull Ga-
tors.
Egan was actively involved in the devel-
opment and growth of Florida's fresh citrus
industry for more than 65 years. He had a
strong commitment to marketing the high-
est quality products possible.
The former CEO of Bernard Egan & Com-
pany, he formed DNE Sales and guided it to
become the largest marketing agent in the
United States of fresh Florida citrus. Egan
was a pioneer in the development of ex-
port markets to Japan for fresh Indian River
grapefruit.
He also expanded European markets for
fresh Florida citrus. Egan was a Florida Cit-
rus Commissioner, Chairman and President
of the Indian River Citrus League and Presi-
dent of United Growers and Shippers As-
sociation. He was inducted into the Florida
Agricultural Hall of Fame in 2002.
A Haines City citrus grower, McTeer also
worked as a DuPont sales representative
for 27 years. He traveled the state teaching
growers how to use herbicides safely and ef-
fectively in their groves.
He is one of only 15 inductees in the
worldwide DuPont Crop Protection Sales


and Marketing Hall of Fame, the highest
honor within the DuPont organization.
Known as the "go-to" guy for many grow-
ers in the production area, McTeer served 25
years as one of the longest-standing board
members of the Haines City Citrus Growers
Association.
McTeer was a key grower-cooperator
with the Citrus Research and Education
Center (CREC) Plant Improvement Team in
Lake Alfred.
He was always available to provide land,
time and materials for CREC's rootstock and
scion trials.
His contributions allowed many field re-
search projects to become realities and ben-
efit the entire citrus industry.
Sorrells' quiet leadership and commit-
ment to the industry served as a steady,
guiding force during export market expan-
sion efforts and the redirection of industry
marketing strategies.
During his tenure as chairman of the
Florida Citrus Commission, Florida orange
juice sales increased by $1.5 billion dollars
per year at a time when growers were pro-
ducing record crops.
He was also instrumental in establishing
a mechanical harvesting research program
to help growers improve harvesting efficien-
cy and reduce costs.
As President of Sorrells Brothers Packing
Co. Inc. and a Director of Sorrells Groves, he
has been involved with the Florida citrus in-
dustry for 58 years.
He has been on the Board of Florida Cit-
rus Mutual.
He has also been a member of the Peace
River Valley Citrus Growers Association and
the Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association.
In addition to citrus, he is a past President
of the National Watermelon Association and
was awarded that association's Lifetime
Achievement Award in 2008.
The Florida Citrus Hall of Fame honors
distinguished leaders who have made sig-
nificant contributions to the Florida citrus
industry.
The Citrus Hall of Fame display and Ar-
chive Center is located within the McKay
Archive Building at Florida Southern College
in Lakeland.

Giving hope in the midst of devastation


How the Glades is giving
relief to the victims of
Haiti's earthquake

By Ashley Causey
Special to The Sun
The evening of January 12 seemed like
an ordinary day for the people of Haiti.
It is easy to conjure images of what was:
Children playing outside, families getting
ready to have supper.
But in a matter of seconds, their lives
were altered.
The earth began to shake, and pulled
down houses with it. Throughout the night,
the sounds of sorrow and despair from
those buried beneath the rubble of homes
and buildings filled the air.

The Aftershock
The news of Haiti hit the First Baptist Hai-
tian Mission like a tidal wave evoking com-
passion, fear and unity from the congrega-
tion.
"When we first heard the news we were
instantly moved to tears and became heart-
broken." Pastor Morales Sthilaire said.
The news hit close to home. Several of
the members have mothers, cousins, and
families still in Haiti.
"It feels like being left in the dark, but we
know that God will bless Haiti in the midst of


trouble," the pastor said.
Although tragedy has struck, the mem-
bers of the congregation have grown closer
together.
According to Mr. Sthilaire, the church
consoles. It provides grief and counseling
services to those people who are having a
hard time coming to terms with what has
happened in Haiti.

Helping Hands
Several churches in the Glades area have
responded to the destruction in Haiti.
The New Macedonia Missionary Baptist
Church of Pahokee has established a collec-
tion site at their church; something it did the
very next day after hearing the news.
"The lives lost in Haiti were heartbreak-
ing for our congregation to hear. Our sympa-
thy goes out to the families who are missing
loved ones." Queen Miller, financial director,
said. "The most important items needed
during this time are non perishable food,
medical supplies, money, children and adult
clothing, bottled water, generators and bat-
teries."
The New Macedonia Missionary Church
will have an ongoing collection site. They
also send clothing to Haiti twice a year. The
church is accepting the previous mention
items Monday through Friday from 9 p.m. to
5 p.m.
The First Baptist Haitian Mission also has
a collection site for supplies. Pastor Sthilaire
stressed that the supplies collected from the


Glades community will be handed to the
people of Haiti by himself, church members
and by people from the community; the sup-
plies will not be transferred to the Red Cross
or UNICEF. "Since many of us came from
Haiti, we know the area the best and I be-
lieve that we can provide aid for the people
who can't speak for themselves."
He also added that it is important for peo-
ple to know who their supplies or money is
helping.

Words of comfort
The most powerful manner of help, Pas-
tor Sthilaire contends, is through soothing
words.
"Trust God, even though we constantly
question him to know why this tragedy has
happened, you still must trust God," he said.
"He will bless you with strength and under-
standing to help you get through this difficult
time."
If you would like to donate to the New
Macedonia Church Haiti fund, please call
561-924-2863. For more information on how
to donate to First Baptist Haitian Mission,
call 561-985-2598.
The damage of Haiti and its capital, Port-
au-Prince has displaced thousands of peo-
ple. The state department operation center
has set up a number for Americans seek-
ing information about family members. If
you have any love ones in Haiti and need to
reach them call 1-888-407-4747.

for the Haitian community. They need to sit
down and talk about how they feel," said
Dr. Robert Rease, pastor of St. John's Mis-
sionary Baptist Church. St. John's is spear-
heading the Haiti earthquake relief effort in
the Glades. The doors of the church opened
Tuesday morning to collect donations. St.
Johns is working with the World Harvest
Missions based in Lake Worth and all do-
nations will be sent directly to Haiti. Fran-
coni Faustin, a 25-year-old, is also gathered
around this table. He has family members
living in Port-au-Prince but has not received
word on their condition.
"We can't cry yet, because we don't
know," he said.
Faustin is haunted by the images he sees
on the television.
"They throw the bodies away, like it's
trash," he whispers.
Joyce Alnatas moved from Haiti to the
United States 11 years ago. She has lived in
Belle Glade since 2001. Alnatas has 23 family
members who live in Port-au-Prince.
"I heard 'Breaking news earthquake in
Haiti' and I felt like I had a cold fever and I
thought 'Oh my God!' and I thought about
my family in Port-au-Prince," Alnatas said.
Since the earthquake, Alantas called her
family multiple times a day hoping to hear
someone's voice.
"Sometimes I call, the phone rings and I
think it will work."
On Monday, Alnatas did hear from a
friend in Haiti that some members of her
family were being evacuated to another
town. Alnatas still has not spoken to her


family directly, though.
"My ears do not hear them. My friends tell
me they are okay. I feel a little relief, but that's
my nation. That's my people. What are they
going to do with those children? They have
no water, no food. God only knows. God
only knows," Alnatas said.
Alnatas is grateful to the American people
for going to Haiti to help. She said that her
country is poor and the government is cor-
rupt and does not care about the people.
"The American people care about my
people. They have good hearts. I tell my chil-
dren that," Alnatas said.
The Community United Methodist Church
in Belle Glade, Glades Central High School,
Palm Beach State College, and the cities of
Belle Glade and South Bay have partnered
with St. John's Missionary Baptist Church in
the Haiti Earthquake Relief Effort.
"I am hoping things will pick up this
week," Rease said.
St. John's has received donations from
a church in Florida City. Members of the
church volunteer their time to sort through
the boxes of donated goods. They separate
food items and clothing. Among those vol-
unteering at St. John's is Joyce Alnatas.
"Even though I don't have nothing to
give. I have time," Alnatas said.
On Sat. Jan. 23 there will be a communi-
ty-wide relief effort for the Haiti earthquake
victims. Donations can be dropped off at the
loading ramp at the intersection of 5th and
6th street in Belle Glade from 8 a.m. to 4:30
p.m.
For more information about the relief ef-
fort and other drop off locations, contact Dr.
Robert L. Rease at 561-449-6932.
