From textbooks to
powerpoint, is
technology really
helping our youth in
the classroom

By Ashley Causey
Special to The Sun
Education, a means of accu-
mulating knowledge, skills, and
values from teachers to students,
has changed drastically in the last
50 years.
The main change in the educa-
tional system has been technolo-
gy. No longer can traditional roles
be used in the classroom, when
technology is knocking on every
school house.
Some educators view this tran-
sition as the big bad wolf, while
others see this as a necessary step
towards a technology-driven fu-
ture.
The question remains: Is tech-
nology helping or hindering edu-


cation and what do our educators
have to say about it?
"Overall education has been
diminished to a degree. Students
do not put much of an individual
effort because of the technology
available," said Richard Schmidt,
a 37-year social studies teacher at
Glades Day School.
"Fifty years ago it took three to
four weeks to write a research pa-
per, and now students wait two or
three days before the due date."
Amy Barningham, an educator
since 1989 and a current employ-
ee in the District Building, feels dif-
ferently.
She acknowledged that stu-
dents have a better knowledge
base through technology than
most teachers.
"The intermixing of education
and technology now allow teach-
ers to partake in various kinds of
exciting technology." Mrs. Barn-
ingham added, "They can no
longer teach like they did twenty
years ago because we are no lon-
ger teaching the same kinds of
students."


Jose Zaragoza


Named Publisher


Jose Zaragoza, editor of the
The Sun, has been named pub-
lisher of The Sun, Tom Byrd,
vice president of Independent
Newspapers, announced today.
The assignment also includes the
community papers the Clewis-
ton News and the Glades County
Democrat.
"Jose will be assuming broad-
er responsibilities in the direct op-
eration of the newspapers," said
Byrd, "He will continue to coordi-
nate local editorial coverage and
will assume a greater role in rep-
resenting the newspapers in the
tri-county area of Hendry, Palm
Beach and Glades."
"I am excited to accept this
new challenge and to build on


our ongoing efforts to serve the
communities." said Mr. Zaragoza.
"The hope is that the strides we
have made in our community
journalism, including a focus on
more meaningful coverage and
an aggressive push toward new
media, will carry over into suc-
cessful results and campaigns for
area advertising clients.
"We know Jose to be a very
quick learner with enthusiasm
and appetite for success," said
Byrd. "We are confident he will
be very successful in serving our
communities and thriving as a de-
veloping leader."
During his time at INI, Jose

With the recent changes of the
'No Child Left Behind Act,' Ameri-
cans are forced to realize that there
are problems within our educa-
tional system besides funding.
The buck cannot just stop at
the teachers' door, in the words of
Mrs. Barningham.
"The pitfalls in education re-
late to teacher preparedness and
student home life," she said. "In
many families, both parents are
working and have little time for
raising children."
Karen McDermott, an educator
for more than three decades, and
the elementary principal at Glades
Day School, is on the same page.
"One of the biggest pitfalls of
education is that the family unit is
no longer that same as it was 10-
15 years ago." She adds, "With
both parents now working, chil-
dren are participating in more af-
ter school activities. Due to this,
most students will do just what is
necessary and no more."
Mr. Schmidt believes that old
rigors just aren't there anymore.
"There is not enough behav-


ioral discipline in the school sys-
tem and personal discipline in the
household," he said.
While Mrs. Barningham and
Mrs. McDermott are in favor of
integrating technology into educa-
tion, Mr. Schmidt feels otherwise.
"The old-fashioned auditory
teacher is now replaced with vi-
sual aids." Mr. Schmidt said.
"Auditory teaching evokes
more of a thought process. With
visual aids, students see it, but why
should they listen? Students today
prefer to watch it instead of read it;
I believe that is why reading scores
are so low."
Have there been enough
gains?
"There are some very suc-
cessful elementary schools in the
Glades, for example, Gladeview
Elementary has shown improve-
ment for the past few years and
has even won special recognition
for their student achievement,"
Mrs. Barningham said.
On the same note, Mrs. Barn-

Be counted in the Census
The 2010 U.S. Census questionnaires will
be mailed to each household in March. It's
important that each family participate and
be counted. It determines the distribution of
$300 billion annually of government fund-
ing for critical community services for the
next 10 years. Participating in the Census
will also ensure that our community gets
their fair share of government funding and
determines how many congressional seats
we have in our state.
Here's some important facts:
Safe: The Census Bureau protects infor-
mation that identified respondents or their
households for 72 years.
Easy: The questionnaire contains only a
few simple questions and takes just a few
minutes to answer and return by mail.
Everyone counts: The census is a count of
everyone living in the United States, includ-
ing people of all ages, races ethnic groups,
both citizens and non-citizens.

Non-profits offered staffing
help
In order to handle more efficiently the
increased demand for services and the in-


creased workload it has placed on service
providers and their staff, the federal govern-
ment is allowing the Department of Children
and Families to place eligibility staff at com-
munity agencies that are willing to share the
costs. The government will pay 50 percent
of the cost for an employee with the "host
agency" paying the other 50 percent. This is
an excellent opportunity to obtain additional
staff process benefit applications, while serv-
ing those in need who come to your agency
for help. To be a past of this expansion op-
portunity or for more information contact
Stephen A. Faroni at 561-837-5843.

SNAP Program
If you are a single person earning a maxi-
mum of $1,127 gross salary per month, or a
4-person household earning a maximum of
$2,297 gross salary per month, you could be
eligible for SNAP. Applying to see if you are
eligible to receive additional funds to pur-
chase food has never been easier. For ques-
tions call 561-993-8660.

all of these things and many more are ac-


complished by our very capable staff.
Our Director, Mr. Hosick, provides excel-
lent administrative assistance to the Board.
And the other other members of our Board
represent a wonderful cross section of skilled
persons bringing talents and leadership ca-
pabilities to the Board that makes our Board
and management team second to none for
expertise and experience."

Scouts celebrate 100 years


Boy Scouts of America celebrated 100
years on Feb. 8, and what better way to cel-
ebrate says a Belle Glade youth.
On Feb. 8, Juan Villanueva faced his
toughest challenge since his swimming
badge. Juan faced newly appointed Eagle
Committee Chair Judge William L. Hendry,
David Fox, new Membership Chair and Ray
Worley newly elected Chairman of the Big
Lake District of BSA.
The committee is proud to be led by
Judge Hendry who received his Eagle in
1943.
Community United Methodist Church of
Belle Glade sponsors Troop 622. A proud
Scout Master, April Stafirn brought Juan to
Okeechobee to meet the committee.
After over an hour of tough questions
about his experience in Scouting and in his
community, Juan was awarded his Eagle
designation.
He joins a long list of Eagles in our Dis-
trict and we are proud to have him. His


work on his Eagle Project involved orga-
nizing and repairing storm damage to his
Church property.
This gave Church members and their
school children access to outdoor space
for classes and other Church functions.
The meeting was held at the American
Legion Memorial Post in Okeechobee who
sponsors Scout Troop 964 and Venture
Crew 2903.
A special thanks to the post for all that
they do for our community.

U.S. Sugar and workers agree to new contract


Clewiston, FL -- U.S. Sugar said today that
negotiations that began January 28, 2010 re-
sulted in a new labor contract that was ap-
proved Monday by its Union workers. The
previous labor contract was scheduled to
expire at midnight February 22, 2010. Cur-
rently the Company's sugar industrial and
railroad workers are members of the Inter-
national Association of Machinists and Aero-
space Workers, Lake Local Lodge #57.
"We look forward to continuing a suc-


cessful partnership with the IAMAW and our
Union workers," said Judy Sanchez, director
of corporate communications.
"The hard working union members of
U.S. Sugar Corporation overwhelming rati-
fied a new three-year deal with the Corn-
pany. We would like to thank U.S. Sugar for
working with us in these difficult economic
times. We feel this contract was fair and we
will continue to work with the Company in
the future," said Robert Miller, IAMAW busi-


ness representative.
The collective bargaining agreement
between U.S. Sugar and the IAMAW, Local
#57 was approved by a majority of IAMAW
members on February 22.
Terms of the contract included an annual
wage increase and an annual bonus pay-
ment. Bonus payments in subsequent years
may be adjusted based on financial perfor-
mance.
Among a host of issues negotiated in the


proposed contract, Sanchez said that dif-
ferences regarding efficient management
of factory operations, work schedules and
work allocation along with economic issues
were satisfactorily resolved.
"We have invested hundreds of millions
of dollars in a state-of-the-art sugar manufac-
turing facility to be competitive in the global
sugar economy," Sanchez said. "Maintain-
ing positive labor relations is an important
component of our overall efficiency."

A Walk in The Past: A Hopeful Peace


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
In 1838, the war appeared to be coming
to an end as retreating Seminoles disbanded
into smaller groups and moved ever south-
ward to escape the relentless, pursuing
Armies. General Jesup was growing optimis-
tic about the war's closure because he now
had the Seminoles outmanned, outgunned
and on the run.
The ever growing Army contributed
much to Jesup's optimism. His early com-
mand in November, 1836, numbered 76
officers and 1,681 soldiers. In November,
1837, his command had increased to 230 of-
ficers and 4,322 soldiers. Jesup's Army regu-
lars precluded the thousands of volunteers,
Florida Militia and naval personal, that were
currently engaged in the war.
Successful new strategies also made
peace seem more realistic to General Jesup.
Previous commanders of the Florida Theater
had employed European style tactics against
the wily Seminole's hit-and-run tactics (gue-
rilla) and lost. General Jesup was not the
traditional officer-gentlemen that followed
traditional military protocol. He adapted a
philosophy much like that of the ancient Ro-
mans, who integrated the superior military
or cultural attributes of an enemy into the
Roman Empire.
So Jesup reasoned, if you can't beat them,
then join them, and that is exactly what he
did. He integrated Seminole tactics with Eu-
ropean tactics and came up with a mixed bag
of strategies that were effective against the
Seminoles. Under his command, numerous
forts were constructed across Florida, while
the once slow, cumbersome Armies under
previous commands were transformed into
faster mobile units that carried out "Search
and Destroy" missions.
General Jesup also believed that "all was
fair in war" and employed whatever tactics
it took to win. He was criticized by the pub-
lic for the unorthodox practice of taking nu-
merous Seminoles at various times under a
Flag of Truce. The famous Seminole Chief,
Osceola, was captured in this manner. Many
in the military and American public viewed
this practice as scandalous.
Such scandalous accusations and out-
cries prompted an immediate reaction from
General Jesup, who felt that regardless of
the injustices committed against the Semi-
nole Nation, that they too were guilty of acts
committed outside the military protocols of
war. He reminded Washington that in peace


time, Osceola lead the ambush that killed
Indian Agent Thompson and five civilians,
while other Seminoles on the same day am-
bushed and killed two companies of men
(106) under the command of Major Dade.
One Seminole infraction that General Je-
sup took personally and used in the defense
of his unorthodox practice was when Semi-
nole bands surrendered, ate, traded, then
had a change of heart and disappeared back
into the swamps. Jesup felt strongly that he
wasn't guilty of breaking any cardinal rules
of war, but had merely adapted like the Ro-
mans.
After the Battle of Loxahatchee River, Je-
sup moved his forces south in search of the
Seminoles. On February 8, 1838, he made
contact with the Seminoles around New
River, which is located close to present day
Fort Lauderdale. Instead of fighting, the op-
posing sides negotiated.
The Seminoles asked Jesup if they could
remain in the Everglades on reservation
lands. Jesup felt that the Seminoles' request
was very legit, since the land would be of
no value to the American people. A com-
promise was struck; Jesup would make an
official request to the American government
and the Seminoles, in turn, would camp
next door and wait on the government's re-
sponse.
On February 11, 1838, Jesup wrote a
letter to the Secretary of War, Poinsett, and
attempted to intervene on the Seminole's
behalf. He pointed out that the Seminoles
were being pushed out of lands that weren't
inhabited by whites, and, for that mat-
ter, probably would never be inhabited by
whites. Jesup requested reservation lands
for the Seminoles and wrote that continuing
the war would cost far more than the cost of
reservation lands in the Everglades.
While waiting for the reply, some of the
Seminoles and officers got to know one an-
other. Surgeon Motte recorded a ceremonial
council that some of the Seminoles attend-
ed. Motte said, "Indian leaders Tuskegee
and Halleck Hajo came dressed in all the
paraphernalia of Indian finery. Preceding
them were two warriors cutting the most
fantastic capers. Along the way the two
leaders stopped and uttered shrill whoops.
Arriving at the general's tent, they shook not
hands, but elbows with each officer, at the
same time touching the forehead of each
with a white feather attached to a stick. Next
the calumet was smoked, and then an old
squaw opened the talks. All the warriors


were her children, she lamented; many
were slain, their villages burned, their chil-
dren perishing. The star of her nation had set
in blood, and she desired that a perpetual
peace be arranged."
A week later the officers received an in-
vitation to attend an Indian dance. The of-
ficers brought whiskey, which they shared
with the Seminoles. Motte said, "Many of
the officers took our places in the ceremo-
nial ring, and danced with the utmost gravity
depicted on our faces; imitating the various
grotesque evolutions and chiming in the
chorus, our voices rendered awfully distinct
by their rough tones amid the softness of the
Indians musical notes."
All good things must come to an end, and
they did on St. Patrick's Day, when Poinsett's
letter arrived from Washington. Secretary of
War, Poinsett, denied the Seminoles' request
to remain and live on reservation lands in the
Everglades. He informed Jesup that the war
was to be continued, until the Seminoles
surrendered and were shipped west.
After reading the letter, Jesup called for a
council with the Seminole leaders, but got no
attendees. He reasoned that the Seminoles
had somehow got wind of the bad news and
would soon take flight. Jesup dispatched
Colonel David E. Twiggs to lead his Second
Dragoons into the adjacent Seminole camp
and capture the Seminoles. Twiggs brought
back roughly 513 Seminoles, of whom 151
were warriors. It was the largest capture in
the war.
Due to public outcry, Jesup was again
forced to publicly defend his actions for cap-
turing Seminoles during a truce. Jesup knew
the war was lost for the Seminoles and that
the Washington bureaucracy was prolong-
ing a war at the expense of Seminole and
American lives. He felt that taking the Semi-
noles captive would save lives on both sides
and end the war sooner.
General Jesup was very unhappy with
Washington's bureaucracy, believing they
had been given the golden opportunity to
end the war peacefully. He had always be-
lieved the Seminole war to be unjust, but
as a professional soldier did his duty. A now
disgruntled Jesup requested that he be re-
lieved of command. On May 15, 1838, Gen-
eral Jesup turned his command over to Gen-
eral Zachary Taylor.

The color green. It'll be hard saying good- -.
bye to it. -
For manyyears PhyllisJ. Lilley, Belle Glade
library branch manager, saw it as a singular
constant in a constantly changing world.
Despite recessions, or boom periods, it was
always there, lying on the ground, fighting
against shoes, boots, heels, the occasional
tramping of mud and rain and grass.
It is the "iconic" carpet and it hasn't aged
a day since it was first installed.
"It's been here as long as I am," said Ms.
Lilley. "This company, they must have gone
out of business because it just won't wear
out," she laughed.
Ms. Lilley mentions this while discuss-
ing plans for an all-new library building on
the site of the former Belle Glade Municipal
Complex Civic Center, across the street from
Lake Shore Middle.
The city of Belle Glade qualified for a
grant to renovate the civic center after Hur-
ricane Wilma tore through it in 2005. Since
then the building has been torn down and
the determination was made that the new
library facility could be built on the site. INI/Jose Zaragoza
When it is completed --the target date is Library officials are looking forward to plans to construct an all-new library facility on the site of the old Belle Glade Civic
Center near Lake Shore Middle.

Library
Continued From Page 8
neighborhood of $8.5 million.
Presently, an architect has been selected
and library officials, as well as the partnering
city of Belle Glade and Palm Beach County
entities are waiting for the finished designs.
Ms. Lilley has already submitted a list of
the library's needs to the architect, includ-
ing the hope that children and teenagers
will have their own, personal areas, a "sig-
nificant" modification, the branch manager
said.
There are no early indications that the
library will be beefing up its approximate-
ly 45,000-plus stock of reading materials.
There's no need, since readers can easily or-
der books through the Palm Beach County
Library System's catalog.
"It's part of our fiscal responsibility: We
have to spend wisely," she said.
All nine employees will transfer to the
new location.
Nicole Hughes, who handles community
relations for the Palm Beach County Library
System, agrees that it is time to build an all-
new facility.
"That building is certainly in need of
repair, so this will be an excellent opportu-
nity for us to have a new, fresh facility out
there."
While the current building, in use since
1966, is sound, the cost of renovating it to
add additional space is better spent on a
new facility, said Ms. Lilley.


"We'll have more space for everything,"
she said. "Making it larger was very impor-
tant."
Despite an economic downturn, and very
likely because of it, the library has seen a
marked improvement in the overall number
of residents making use of the online com-
puters available at the facility.
Students, parents, children are using the
facility more than they ever have.
"Especially since I've been here, the use
of the library has gone way up," said Ms. Lil-
ley, noting how some families have scaled
back on previous expenses like Internet and
cable, and are finding respite in using library
material.
While library officials had had their eye
on a new facility being constructed at the
present site, the civic center location has its
benefits, including its proximity to the mid-
dle school and Belle Glade Elementary, and
the fact that it will now be located directly
inside of a neighborhood, as opposed to a
busy intersection.
It is an encouraging trend to watch par-
ents with children in tow visiting the library.
"The children are so important to us," the
branch manager said. "We see adults we
watched growing up bringing their children.
This facility has served the city very well."
At this early juncture, there are no con-
crete plans regarding the future use of the
current library location, which also houses
the Lawrence E. Will Museum. Ms. Lilley
said that the museum will not be transferred
to the new site.

The Woman's Club of Belle Glade and American Legion, Post 20 of Belle
Glade formed a partnership to support our overseas troops. The Legion
gave the Woman's Club $1,000 to provide free shipping of packages to lo-
cal soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Woman's Club has fulfilled
that partnership agreement by paying for the postage for several families in
the Glades with sons and daughters serving overseas. Now, the Legion and
Woman's Club are partnering in a sweet deal to send 10 cases of Girl Scout
Cookies to our troops. Shown above are Woman's Club President Sandra
