Students at Belle Glade's Youth Violence Prevention Program are learning the intricacies of
digital photography.


Students
Belle Glade kids
pursue photography
as possible career
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
The students carry on in the
furthest room inside the modu-
lar unit, in a facility in downtown
Belle Glade, passing three or four
cameras among themselves,
snapping up pictures of every-
thing and sneaking past chairs,
maneuvering carefully in a space
filled with desks with computers
and a small hallway.
They take photos of them-
selves. Of others, their teacher,
the walls. The chairs. The fences
around the city of Belle Glade's
Youth Violence Prevention Pro-
gram. Everything.
Sometimes, they happen on
a particularly interesting subject
and race through a series of pho-
tos before the thing moves away,


learn photography
or leaves their sights.
And once they see it on the
computer screen, enlarged so
that the tiniest of details are fully
in bloom, they hurry to one an-
other to show just how beautiful
their picture is.
Carlton Cartwright has no
single second to spare. He sits
at a corner desk, with the whole
group of kids watching over his
shoulder. He teaches them to
plug the cameras into the com-
puter, and how to transfer the -
files to the hard drive.

How the youth of the
Glades were able to
look past their needs
in order to serve
others
Skipping a meal for many is a
choice, but in other countries -- in
some instances even in our own
community -- it is a fact of life.
According to New Hope Chari-
ties, 75 percent of children in the
Glades live in poverty.
For local high school students,
Feb. 26 and 27 marked an impor-
tant moment for standing up to the
challenge of poverty, not only in
the Glades but around the world.
For 30 hours, 41 students from
Glades Day, Pahokee Middle/Se-
nior, Glades Central and Clewiston
High Schools went without food.
The movement of World Vi-
sion's 30-Hour Famine began in
1992. Since then, youth groups
across America have raised $130
million to feed and care hungry
children around the world.
Scott Folsom, a youth pastor
of the Glades United Method-
ist Churches, wanted to stand for
something more.
"I first heard about the 30-Hour
Famine at a concert of one my fa-
vorite Christian artists, Michael W
Smith. When I heard about World
Vision's plea for help, I felt person-
ally that I was not doing anything
for the fight against poverty," he
said.

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-

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.

Brown wins American Fishing Series event on Lake 0


Steadham wins co-angler
title
CLEWISTON Pro Marty Brown of Dal-
ton, Ga., caught a five-bass limit weighing 10
pounds, 14 ounces Saturday to win the FLW
American Fishing Series Southeast tourna-
ment on Lake Okeechobee with a three-day
total of 15 bass weighing 52 pounds, 1 ounce.
For his victory, Brown earned $24,680.
"I was lucky enough to find a transition
area where the fish were moving in and out,"
Brown said. "I was here during the FLW
Eastern Series event a few weeks ago and I
knew there was a spawn then, with the full
moon coming again I knew another spawn
was coming. I just basically fished the same
location all week long which was the east
wall area knowing that I would have to work
it, work it, work it, until I caught my fish. It
was loaded; the challenge was being able to
come up with the kickers which were few
and far between due to the cold front.
"I had my limit today by about 10 and was
able to cull a few times, but I never really did
find that one big kicker today. I caught all
my fish flipping a Black Zoom 6" Lizard on a
Castaway Flipping Stick.
Rounding out the top-5 pros were:
2nd: Jeff McMillan, Belle Glade, Fla., 15
bass, 46-6, $8,391
3rd: Don Demott, Boca Raton, Fla., 15
bass, 46-5, $5,923
4th: Jeff Fitts, Keystone Heights, Fla., 15
bass, 45-14, $4,936
5th: Dwayne Horton, Knoxville, Tenn., 15
bass, 45-8, $4,442


Jesse Steadham of Florence, Miss., won
the Co-angler Division and $9,882 cash, with
a three-day total of 15-bass weighing 33
pounds, 4 ounces.
"I am still shaking all over," said Stead-
ham who is fishing with FLW for his second
year. "I caught all my fish using skinny dip-
pers in grass fields about 4 -5 feet deep. The
bite was not as good today and the fish were
definitely smaller, I thought I was going to
finish in third place.
"Fishing was definitely a lot more difficult
today. I had a 4 5-pounder that broke my
line early in the day and then I didn't get my
kicker until the last 20 minutes of the tourna-
ment; that 4 1/2 pound fish was the one that
definitely won it for me."
Steadham caught five bass weighing
14-12 Thursday while fishing with pro Dale
Walker of Miami, Fla., to open the tourna-
ment in sixth place. On Friday he added five
more bass weighing 9 to make the top-10
cut in fifth place while fishing with pro Rick
Marsh of High Point, N.C. Finally, on Satur-
day, he sealed the win with five bass weigh-
ing 9-8 while fishing with Aymon Wilcox of
Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.
Rounding out the top five co-anglers
were:
2nd: Kevin Thomas, Miramar, Fla., 15
bass, 32-15, $3,953
3rd: Bucky Helms, Dallas, N.C., 11 bass,
30-11, $1,976
4th: Brent Houlihan, Naples, Fla., 15 bass,
30-11, $1,729
5th: Robert Wood, Jupiter, Fla., 11 bass,
30-4, $1,482

Board approves sale of Glades General Hospital


West Palm Beach At its Feb. 24 meet-
ing, the Health Care District of Palm Beach
County Board of Commissioners approved
accepting the highest bid for the purchase of
the 14-acre Glades General Hospital facility
and property in Belle Glade. The accepted
bid for $250,000 was made by Miami-based
developers Castello Brothers, LLC.
"We are encouraged by the bidder's inter-
est in developing new housing on the prop-
erty, which would serve as a community re-

h F\ A


source and asset," said Dwight D. Chenette,
MBA, MPH, Chief Executive Officer of the
Health Care District of Palm Beach County.
"The plans outlined by the bidder will put
the property back on the tax rolls and may
create additional jobs while renovations are
underway."
Castello Brothers, which currently co-
owns a 384 unit multi-family development in
Belle Glade called Belle Glade Gardens, pro-
poses a residential use for the Glades Gen-


eral Hospital property at 1201 South Main
Street in Belle Glade. With the Board's vote
on Wednesday, the transaction now moves
to the closing phase, which will take place
within 60 days.
Glades General Hospital served the rural
western Palm Beach County communities
for over 65 years before being retired on
October 15, 2009. The same day that the
doors closed at Glades General Hospital, the
Health Care District opened the doors to its


replacement, Lakeside Medical Center.
The new 70-bed facility is the county's
only public hospital, featuring all-private pa-
tient rooms, an expansive 24-hour Emergen-
cy Room and modern technology through-
out.
Lakeside Medical Center, which was com-
pleted ahead of schedule and below budget,
is centrally located at the intersection of US
441 and State Road 80 in Belle Glade.

Big "0" Birding Extravaganza registration underway


Clewiston Early registration is now un-
derway for the Hendry/Glades County Big
"0" Birding Extravaganza scheduled for
March 25 to March 28. With too much to
take-in just three days, this year's extrava-
ganza has grown into a four-day festival.
Early registrants can take advantage of deep
registration discounts on March 4 and March
5.
"Attendance last year far exceeded our
expectations, and we've received an incred-
ible amount of regional support to help ex-
pand the festival this year," says festival com-
mittee chair Janet Papinaw. "Plus, we're all
eager to hear our Keynote Speaker Saturday
evening, James Currie, the host of Birding
Adventures TV"
An all-inclusive four-day festival pass, if
ordered by March 5, is $125. After March
5, the same pass is $175. While the all-in-
clusive pass EXCLUDES accommodations,
it does afford the festival-goer four full days
of birding activities, scheduled meals, and

Smith pushed the cart into the women's
clothing section, while Atkins made a pur-
chase from the electronics counter. The

Phone Discounts Available to CenturyLink Customers

With Link-Up America and Lifeline Assistance Programs, qualified low-income telephone custom-
ers can save money on installation charges and the monthly rate for basic local residential service.
This includes access to long distance carriers, Emergency Services, Operator Services, Directory
Assistance and Toll Blocking.
Link-Up America is a federally-sponsored program that provides discounted service installation
charges to qualifying low-income customers. It provides a 50 percent discount, up to a maximum
of $30 for new residential installation charges for telephone service. The balance of the installation
charges can be paid, interest free, over a 12 month period. In addition, the monthly service charge
for toll restriction will be waived for customers requesting or required to have the service.
Lifeline Assistance is another federally-sponsored program for low-income customers. It provides a
discount to the monthly charge for basic residential telephone service. Lifeline Assistance Program
rates have been reduced and guidelines have been changed to allow for more low-income custom-
ers.
To qualify for both programs, customers may enroll in the CenturyLink Lifeline program by pro-
viding verification that they meet state low-income eligibility requirements. In addition, Tribal Tele-
phone Assistance is available for those living on federally-recognized American Indian Tribal lands.
If you live in a CenturyLink service area, please call 1-800-366-8201 or visit www.centurylink.
com/lifeline with questions or to request an application for the Lifeline/Link-Up programs.

women then put that purchase on top of the
computer, added the report.
Officer Boon said the women then bought
an inexpensive item from the women's
clothing section. As they approached the ca-
shier Atkins allegedly presented the receipt
of the purchase from the electronics depart-
ment without paying for the computer.
Both women were stopped by a Walmart
loss prevention officer as they started to
leave the store, the report stated.
Officer Boon said both women have been
trespassed from Walmart.

Life in a Gold Fish Bowl
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Once upon a time, many years ago, I
proved my manhood by tossing a carnival
ball in a little glass bowl and won a goldfish.
I carried it home in a plastic bag, kept it in a
jar until I could go out and purchase an of-
ficial goldfish bowl from the store.
If you've ever had a goldfish, you know
just what happens to them. You put them
in their little goldfish bowl and they just
keep swimming and swimming around the
bowl.
The crazy thing is that when a goldfish is
put in a little bowl, it starts to produce an
enzyme that keeps it from growing. Put it in
a larger bowl, and it grows a little bit larger.
When you take it out of the bowl and put it
in a big pond, it starts to grow into the size it
was meant to be.
Someone once said that we need to live
every day like it will be our last, for one day
we will be right. There's a lot of wisdom in
that. Too many people are limiting them-
selves and their lives to the small goldfish
bowl they are living in.
Though we may believe all the right be-
liefs, go to all the right meetings, and do the
right things, there are times when some-


thing inside of us suggests there might be
something more. That is God's calling in
our lives to be all that we can be. We can't,
however, be all that we can be until we step
by faith outside of the limited confinement
of the bowl we are living in, no matter how
comfortable it might be.
Have you given thought to the possibility
that you might be in a spiritual goldfish bowl
at the moment? Perhaps you have found
yourself just swimming and swimming and
going in circles. The lesson of the goldfish
bowl is that if you can get out, God has so
much more for you than you've ever experi-
enced before. He wants to introduce you to
the big pond you were made for.
There is a big pond out there God has
prepared for all of us. He wants to do some-
thing amazing through each of us! Let us
grow to our potential.

When do some things ever
"Expire?" maybe never! Good
news!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
An acquaintance of Mohawk indian origin
was visiting one day awhile back. He asked


if there was a branch of his bank in my town
and I told him where to find it. When he re-
turned he told me of the difficult time he had
cashing a check there. He said that the teller
asked him for all sorts of identification and
then wanted one with a picture on it.
"I gave her my Indian Status card issued
by the government" he said. "She said she
couldn't accept it" he went on "because it
didn't have any expiration date on it." I told
her "Lady, there is no expiration date on it
because there is no time I expire being an
Indian!" He got his check cashed! I recently
attended a retirement conference for clergy.
One thing was pretty apparent; none of us
had "retired" being clergy. All of us were in-
volved in ministries in one form or another,
even if only in a limited, part-time capacity.
Apparently, ordination doesn't expire ei-
ther. One of my former mentors and friends
sent his new address in his retirement; mov-
ing about 2,500 miles from his last ministry.
He told me about picking new furniture and
then having to decide how he was going to
"contribute" in his new location. Both the
Old Testaments and New Testaments re-
mind us that we are "a priest forever, after
the Order of Mehchizedek (Psalm 110:5,
Hebrews 5:6, 10ff)". Those called to special
ministries and identified with religious titles
seem never to retire. I know of no tradition


that "revokes" an ordination, or has any ma-
jor ministry "expiring" like the Energizer
Bunny, it just keeps going and going and go-
ing! And, by the way, this includes another
"priesthood" the priesthood of all believ-
ers. Peter reminds us "You are a chosen peo-
ple, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peo-
ple belonging to God...(1 Peter 2:9)" When
does that ministry begin? At baptism when
you become a part of the family of God.
Whether baptized as an infant or as an
adult, and by whatever means; one is a part
of God's family and has a ministry or "priest-
hood." Does that expire or is it "revoked?"
Never! Like those who are ordained; there
may be times and circumstances when
ministry is not practiced but it still serves to
mark us. A man once asked me if I could
"undo" a baptism! As we talked, I found out
the problem wasn't with the baptism but in
the record-keeping that went with it (which
was corrected).
Strange question; if we believe that bap-
tism involves God, how could we possibly
undo His work?! We do what the Lord com-
mands: "Go and make disciples of all na-
tions, baptizing them... (Matthew 28:19)"
and when we do, the Lord surely does His
part too, never to expire we're His always,
everywhere, anyway! That's really Good
News!

Mr. Folsom decided to spearhead the
event in the Glades.
Glades Day hosted the event from Feb. 26
and 27, a suggestion by Mrs. Lohmann, the
head of the Future Christian Athletes group.
"Glades Day School decided to house the
30-Hour Famine because this was a great
activity for our youth to participate in some-
thing that was Christ-centered."
The 30 hours began at 7 a.m. on Feb.
26 with students' last breakfast served at
Glades Day's cafeteria. Throughout the day,
students filled themselves with liquids and
anticipated the lock-in later that night.
Brittany Dean, a first-year participant and
junior at Glades Day was happy to partici-
pate.
"I am excited about the 30-Hour Fam-
ine because I have a chance to meet new
people and learn how much I take things for
granted," the student said.
At 6 p.m., the students gathered for the
lock-in, and they checked in, decorating
their cardboard houses, and preparing for a


planned Sue Sommer's concert.
Students were divided into different tribes
for the tribal games that lasted throughout
the night. These included the hunger scram-
ble, clinic crisis, watering hole, save the har-
vest, phonic frenzy, and egg defense. The
objective of each tribal game was to educate
the students about how difficult it is for oth-
er countries to obtain food, clean water, or
education.
"What I like most about the tribal games
is that we had to work together as a team
and that it had a competitive edge," re-
marked Olivia Pope, a Seventh-Grade Paho-
kee student.
"The hunger scramble was my favorite
activity because it really put the skills to the
test and it shined a light on the fact that we
should appreciate what we have," added
Cordero Phillips, a sophomore at Glades
Central.
As the hours rolled away, the students
began to feel the pangs of hunger. Juice and
water provided temporary relief while they
served reminders of the reason why they
were participating.
Matthew Schultz, a second-year partici-
pant and an Eighth-Grader at Glades Day
School, said he was slightly hungry but

Students from throughout the Glades joined to take part in going for 30 hours
without eating food to bring awareness to the plight of less fortunate families
throughout the world.


mostly tired. That feeling was shared among
many of the participants.
Dreams of a hot breakfast awaiting the
slumbering students were quickly dashed at
six in the morning with a loud morning call.
Those who refused to answer the call were
met with cold ice water on their heads.
The itinerary for Saturday was full of ser-
vice projects. The participants were divided
into different groups for community service.
The service projects included: preparing
breakfast at the First Baptist Church or the
Lighthouse Caf6, baking bread at Mrs. Ad-
ams house, or working at the food pantry.
Julia Price, a two-year participant and eighth
grader of Glades Day School, commented,
"Working at the Lighthouse Caf6 was my fa-
vorite part of the 30 hour famine. I had the
opportunity to help people from different
walks of life and I realized that I have a lot to
be thankful for."
As the 30 hour famine came to an end,
and the hour to break the fast came closer
and closer, the message that World Vision
was trying to send became clearer.
Mirasha Brown, in her second year par-
ticipating and a senior at Glades Day School,
agreed.
"The lesson I learned was not to take
things for granted because some people in
the world view our everyday amenities as
luxuries," she said.
Although the reasons for participation
ranged from wanting to try something dif-
ferent to a friend pressuring them, the main
point was recognized in the words of Mat-
thew Schultz:
"I just wanted to help all the kids around
the world."
