Glades Central: Shakespeare in comedy page 9


Getoya Hessing and Robin "Chelle" Clark proudly campaigned for Linda Johnson, who
would go on to win her bid for a seat on the South Bay City Commission on March 9. Ms.
Clark is a lifelong friend of Ms. Johnson and was confident that her childhood acquaintance
would win.


Sasser, Johnson win election bids


March 9 vote draws
citizens to polling
places

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
In the wake of his decisive vic-
tory in Pahokee, former Mayor
and newly elected mayor J.P.
Sasser said this was his easiest
victory yet.
With six political campaigns
under his belt, Mr. Sasser wasn't
referring to his victory over in-
cumbent Mayor Wayne Whitaker,
and challenger Leonard Rolle, the
mayor-elect referred to a smooth
campaign that went off without a
hitch.
His campaign staff had met
weekly for the past two months,
and met each goal it set. The ulti-
mate demonstration of that work
came Tuesday night.
Mayor Sasser collected nearly


60 percent of the vote during the
election, easily warding off Mr.
Whitaker's 27 percent, and Mr.
Rolle's 14 percent.
He looked forward to getting
back on the job.
After his loss to Mr. Whitaker
in 2008, Mr. Sasser only thought
about running for office again
when some of the very people
who opposed him earlier asked
him to run, he said.
"I tell you what happened: I
saw six years of my hard work
that I had put into the city as far
as building relationships with our
legislators and earning respect
just being thrown away," he said
during an early morning inter-
view on Wednesday.
He said he is eager to pinpoint
the financial condition of the city,
and chart a course of action. He
also looks forward to bridging
what he calls a gap between the
city and the sheriff's office in Pa-
hokee.


"We need a lean-mean opera-
tion," he said. "We can't afford
any waste or any lost motion."
Meanwhile, in South Bay, Lin-
da Johnson defeated challenger
Elvis "Ricky" Harvey for a seat
on the city commission. As South
Bay assumes a critical role in a
planned inland port project near
the city, Ms. Johnson remains
focused on the livelihood of her
constituents, she said.
Ms. Johnson is no stranger
to the board, and defended her
seat by urging to address inflat-
ing unemployment figures in her
area. With figures as high as 40
percent, unemployment remains
a large piece of the economic
puzzle for the city of South Bay.
"The only thing on our minds
now is jobs, jobs, jobs," she said.
Ms. Johnson won 54 percent
of the votes in her favor.
On Wednesday, she spoke

Do Glades

students eat

more than

they should?
What two schools
think of the issue

By Ashley Causey
Special to The Sun
According to kidshealth.org,
one out of three children is consid-
ered overweight or obese.
Kathleen Sebelius, U.S. Health
and Human Service Secretary stat-
ed that the United States spends
nearly $150 billion a year fighting
obesity -- that is more than the
United States spends on cancer
research.
Although this news is troubling,
schools in the Glades are hoping to
play their part in fighting obesity.
Glades Central's principal, An-
thony Anderson, is just one of
many administrators hoping to
tackle the issue.
"Although I have been principal
for only a year, Glades Central has
increased athletic activity and we
updated our physical education
program," he said, praising how
his school's food service provides
meals that are low in sugar, and
provide healthy options for stu-
dents.
Asked if the school does more
than simply provide an option, the
principal said he hopes to raise
more awareness about healthy eat-
ing at his school.
"Education is the key. I want my
students to know about healthier
choices and how those choices will
benefit them," the principal said.
Mr. Anderson is not alone. Mrs.
Vivian Green, Pahokee Elementary
principal, is on the same page as
her fellow educator.
"Here at Pahokee Elementary,
we advocate physical activity. Next
school year, we will be participating
in the district wellness campaign.

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.

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

PBSO Belle Glade and Pahokee youth boxers win by the rules


By Steven Tillings
Special to The Sun
During the week in
Belle Glade and Paho-
kee, many kids are off
the streets and in the
gym where they are
safe and out of trouble
says Deputy Sheriff Mi-
chael LeStrange who
coaches kids at the
Palm Beach County

League Youth Center in
Pahokee. Felix Sanchez
"Since the youth Sanchez proudly

sure. We mandate that
our youth boxers follow
a strict code of conduct
to maintain membership.
The PAL youth boxer will
agree to respecting par-
ents, teachers, persons
of authority, and respect
all people as they would
like to be respected. They
cannot be a gang mem-
ber, and must stay clear of
all unlawful activity. In ad-
dition, the PAL boxer can-
not use drugs, alcoholic
beverages, tobacco prod-
ucts. Honesty is required;
adults will be responded
as sir and ma'am."


Deputy LeStrange said under the lead-


ership of PBSO Colonel Mike Gauger he
learned the value of the school watch pro-
gram in community policing. Consequently
he visits Pahokee Middle/High School once a
week to ensure that his PAL boxers are in
school and behaving. "The boxers will pro-
duce their report cards when asked to do so.
We will help our struggling students. Asst.
Principal Mary Ford is an outstanding asset
to her students and will tutor the PAL pro-
gram participants."
Verbain Curry is the first college student
in the PBSO boxing program in the Glades.
Curry joined the program in 2003 under Sgt.
Sean Flynn and Coach Willie Wiggens.
"Curry is a role model for his peers, we
are proud of him" said Flynn. Curry is a 5
time Florida champion and was ranked
nationally. Last Saturday, Coach LeStrange
brought the Pahokee and Belle Glade PAL
boxing teams to the Boca Raton Police Ath-


letic League to compete. Fifteen-year-old Fe-
lix Sanchez from Pahokee High School won
a convincing three-round decision against
Mark James from Ft. Lauderdale.
Sixteen-year-old Nicholas Sanchez also a
student of Pahokee High School also won a
three-round decision against Kendall Louis
from Hollywood.
"The Sanchez brothers are very hard
working athletes who take their sport very
seriously. "They help each other" said LeS-
trange.
Also eight-year-old Deonte Altman who
is a student at Grove Elementary School
in Belle Glade won a three-round decision
against John Conley from Miami Dade. Ten-
year-old Michael Guerrier from Pahokee
Elementary had a very good 3 round box-
ing match against Zackary Bram from Royal
Palm Beach.

It's true: Any dog can bite 'Absolutely incredible KidDayis


By Pat Dobbins
Even the cutest, cuddliest, fuzziest, sweet-
est puppy can bite. Most people are bitten
by their own dog or a dog of someone they
know. Unfortunately, some owners actually
promote aggression in their dogs or allow
aggression to go unchecked.
Dog bites are a serious problem. In the
U.S. over 800,000 dog bites are reported an-
nually. Many bite injuries go untreated. On
average, about a dozen people die each year
from dog bite injuries. There are steps we
can take to address this problem.
Who's being bitten? The number of
recorded dog bite injuries is significantly
higher in children than adults. The elderly
and home service providers such as mail
carriers, meter readers and cable workers
are also high on the list of frequent dog bite
victims.
What can you do? Be a responsible pet
owner. Obey leash laws. Use a leash in pub-
lic to ensure you are able to control your
dog. If you have a fenced yard, make sure
the gates are secure.
Make sure your pet is socialized as a pup-
py so it feels comfortable around people and
other animals. Don't put your dog in a posi-
tion where it feels threatened or teased.
How can you and your family avoid be-
ing bitten? Be cautious around strange dogs
and treat your own pet with respect.
Other tips that may prevent or stop a dog
attack include: Don't run past a dog. Dogs
naturally love to chase and catch things.
Don't give them a reason to become excited
or aggressive. Never disturb a dog that's car-
ing for puppies, sleeping or eating. Never
reach through or over a fence to pet a dog.
Dogs can be protective of their territory, and
may see your action as a threat.
If a dog approaches to sniff you, stay still.
In most cases, the dog will go away when it
determines you are not a threat. If you are
threatened by a dog, remain calm. Try not to
scream or yell. What should you do if your
dog bites someone?
Even if the bite can be explained (e.g.,
someone stepped on your dog's tail), it's im-
portant to take responsibility for your dog's
actions by taking these steps: Restrain the
dog immediately. Separate it from the scene
of the attack. Confine it. Wash wounds with
soap and water.
Medical advice should be sought to eval-
uate bite wounds and the risk of rabies or
other infections. Provide important informa-
tion including your name, address and infor-
mation about your dog's most recent rabies
vaccination.
If your dog does not have a current rabies
vaccination, it may be necessary to quaran-
tine it or even euthanize it for rabies testing.
What if you are bitten?
If your own dog bites you, confine it im-
mediately and call your vet to check your
dog's vaccination records. Talk with them
about your dog's aggressive action.
Your vet can examine your dog to make
sure it's healthy, and may provide you with
information about training your dog. If
someone else's dog bites you, first seek
medical treatment for your wound.
Next, contact authorities and tell them ev-


erything you can about the dog: the owner's
name, if you know the owner and the dog,
the color and size of the dog, and where/
when you encountered the dog.
These details may help animal-control
officers locate the dog in case rabies is of
concern. Please call LaBelle Animal Control
863-675-3381 or the Clewiston Animal Con-
trol 863-983-1474.
Dogs are wonderful companions. By act-
ing responsibly, owners can help to reduce
dog bite injuries.

James D. Murray, 89

age 89, of Moore Haven, passed away March 5,

vegetables out of his pickup around Moore

Health Care District employees donate


more than $12,000 for Haiti relief


West Palm Beach, FL Health Care Dis-
trict of Palm Beach County employees made
more than $12,000 in personal financial do-
nations through an internal employee fund-
raising campaign to aid victims of the devas-
tating earthquake in Haiti.
The total $12,143.08 in donations were
presented to the Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter of the American Red Cross to sup-
port the agency's emergency relief and re-
covery efforts that include raising money
for the Haitian Red Cross and working with
local Haitian-American residents and their
families.
As a part of the relief drive, which con-
cluded Friday, February 12, employees also
donated food supplies for survivors of the
natural disaster.
Many of the Health Care District's 1,000
employees have strong family ties to Haiti,
and some have been personally affected by
the earthquake.
"At a time when the need in Haiti is so
great, we wanted to provide a collaborative
way for our employees to not only help the
earthquake victims in Haiti, but also allow
them to show support for their neighbors
and co-workers who have family there,"
said Dwight D. Chenette, MBA, MPH, Chief
Executive Officer of the Health Care District
of Palm Beach County. "I am deeply moved
by our employees' overwhelming generosity


and good will, which is even more impres-
sive considering many of us have already
donated to various relief efforts in our comrn-
munity."
Food donations were delivered to Food
for the Poor, an international emergency re-
lief organization based in South Florida that
raises funds and provides direct assistance
to impoverished people throughout Latin
America and the Caribbean.
Because of its ongoing work in Haiti,
Food for the Poor was able to immediately
respond and find alternative ways to deliver
aid in spite of the distribution challenges that
arose in the days following the quake.
Employees contributed to the campaign
via personal check, payroll deduction, and
by donating accrued paid time off, which
the District converted to a monetary contri-
bution.
"The outpouring of support by our em-
ployees for those in need in this impover-
ished country is both impressive and ap-
preciated," said Mr. Chenette. "I am proud
to work with such a charitable, kindhearted
and caring group of employees."
One Health Care District employee was
able to donate his free time and expertise to
provide medical relief in the days following
the quake. Daniel B. Kairys, MD, a surgeon
at Lakeside Medical Center in Belle Glade,
which is owned and operated by the Health


Care District, was among the first wave of
medical responders after the earthquake
struck on January 12.
He and his Haitian-born wife, Junia, a
physician's assistant, made their way to the
capital city of Port-au-Prince as part of Proj-
ect Medishare for Haiti, a non-profit medical
relief organization, to provide medical care
to those injured in the disaster.

Shakespeare in comedy appears at Glades Central


The Glades Central Thespians are prepar-
ing for their up-coming performance of "The
Reduced Shakespeare's Complete Works of
William Shakespeare, Abridged." It is quite
a long title for quite a humorous show of all
of Shakespeare's plays. Yes, all 37 plays are
given time in this production. Need we say
that it is a comical romp through the Bard's
comedies, tragedies, and histories.
Three young Thespians, senior Ruben
Resendez, appearing among others as Juliet
and Ophelia, and juniors Fladumy Orleus,
portraying Macbeth and Hamlet, and Ber-
trum McPhee, developing the roles of Ro-
meo and King Lear among all of the other
various characters from the pen of Shake-
speare. Two additional actors help out with
some of the roles. They are senior Christela


Louis-Jeune and freshman Roberson Mi-
chaud.
Come on either Wednesday, March 24 or
Thursday, March 25, at 7 p.m. to participate
in this hilarious comedy and experience
Shakespeare's great writings in a way you
have never seen them before. Tickets are
only $5. They may be purchased from cast
members or from the director, Sarah Ben-
nett at Glades Central, 561-993-4400.
The Thespians are performing the play
to help in their fund raising to attend their
State competition at the Florida State Thes-
pian Festival and Competition in Tampa,
April 7 through April 11. If you wish to make
a contribution to the Thespians for this trip,
checks may be sent to Glades Central Thes-
pians, 1001 SW Avenue M in Belle Glade.

Youth Livestock Auction
Results

After many months the 2010 Hendry
County Fair Youth Livestock Exhibitors have
finally seen the results of their hard work.
Four market steers and 64 market hogs
sold for over $80,000 on February 12 at the
Hendry County Fair and Livestock Show. An
additional $28,000 was contributed in the
form of add-on's to the exhibitors.
The Hendry County Fair Youth Livestock
Program is an educational event for 4-H and
FFA members.
The fair is simply the venue for receiving
the rewards for all the hard work and effort
that has been put into their animal projects.
The Hendry County Fair Board is proud to be
a part of the Youth Livestock Program.
We feel that this program develops re-
sponsibility, self reliance, sportsmanship,
and mostly importantly prepares our youth
to be future leaders.
Clewiston and the surrounding com-
munities have once again proven that no
matter the issues in our community or the
economic challenges that the nation faces
we support our youth and are committed to
continuing the traditions of Hendry County
with them.
The youth livestock exhibitors of the 2010
Hendry County Fair would like to thank the
following businesses and individuals for
their support and contributions to the Hen-
dry County Youth Livestock Program.

What have you taught your
kids?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
In Proverbs 4:10-11 it says "Hear, 0 my
son, and receive my sayings, and the years
of thy life shall be many. I have taught thee
in the ways of wisdom; I have led thee in
right paths." Can you as a parent say that to
your children?
Many times I have heard parents lament,
"What have I done wrong?" Parents are all
too willing to take the blame when their chil-
dren make poor choices or get themselves
into trouble. Parents want so much for their
children to succeed and have pleasant, care-
free lives. That is why there is special joy in
seeing children succeed. Mothers and Fathers
can feel pride and take some credit fo their
children when they do well. It is an honor
to the parents of children who succeed, that
they have done a good job of bringing them
up. When parents take interest in their chil-
dren and treat them with respect and care,
they are giving them as great a gift as is pos-
sible. Those children who come from fami-
lies where they are supposed to have the
greatest chance of living good lives when
they are grown.
Our heavenly Father has tried to instruct
us in the ways that lead to eternal life. He
has allowed us to make our own choices,
though, and we must take responsibility for
them, bad or good. It is His greatest wish
that we follow the wisdom of His will. When
we do so it is to His glory as well as ours,
that we have learned well. By listening to
our heavenly Father, our lives are enriched
and the years of our lives will be multiplied.
The Bible says, "Train up a child in the
way he should go, and when he is old he
will not depart from it." Have you taught you
kids what Sin is (I John 3:4, James 4:17),
what the wage of sin is (Romans 6:23), how
their sins can be forgiven (John 14:6, Mark
16:15-16, Acts 2:38, 8:26-39), and what it
means to live the Christian Life (Galatians
2:20). Have you taught them the importance
of Church attendance (Hebrews 10:24-31),
the importance of the Lord's Supper (John
6:53-55), the importance of giving as God
has prospered them (I Cor. 16:2, Malachi
3:10) and the importance of Personal Evan-
gelism (John 15:1-8. Have you set the right
example by doing these things yourself
(Matthew 6:33). If "Love" (Agape) means to
"seek the HIGHEST GOOD", are you seeking
their highest good do you really love them
by this definition?

Giving in hard times; a cau-
tionary note
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Episcopal Church, Clewiston
A recent newscast reported that funds
raised to feed starving people in Ethiopia
were diverted for the purchase of arms. I en-
visioned all of the well-meaning people that
wished to help people with a real need only
to be victimized. Their hopes were turned
into weapons of war, probably to oppress
the very people that they might have been
trying to help. We are cautioned to "watch
out for false prophets. They come to you


in sheep's clothing but inwardly they are
ferocious wolves (Matthew 7:15)." People
misrepresent for personal gain and do great
harm to those who really want to help.
Periodically, I get announcements about
persons impersonating clergy who seek to
raise funds for some "cause" and want the
support of unsuspecting people. One lady
in a church I served was asked to support
Church-run orphanage overseas and asked
me about it. I wrote to our Church in the
region to check on the legitimacy of the so-
licitation for her; she was pleased to know
just where her money was going from an
independent source. In these times of fi-
nancial hardships, there are more and more
solicitations from Churches and to Church
members for aid; some being questionable
and of doubtful veracity.
Like the buyer, the giver must also be-
ware in his efforts to do good. Churches are
vulnerable and I am always suspect when
a request comes from a source that I really
do not know much about. As a rule, I get
in touch with the supposed benefactor (if I
can) and check out the organization that is
purported to be represented. Recently, the
clergy of our own Ministerial Association
were discussing how we could help those
who were victims of recent earthquake
damage in Haiti; and the consensus among
the clergy was that we would work with or-
ganized, known charities who had a track
record of helping in the area we wished to
serve.
All too often, it is in times of crises that
people want to help, only to support a cause
(or group) other than what they intended.
My recommendation to people is to chan-
nel their resources through local Churches
(or local organizations) that have some
contact with the region, the cause, the need
for which support is solicited. In the past I
have called my neighboring clergy when
there is a question about a cause, and oth-
ers have checked with me when someone
represents himself/herself as a member of a
Church I serve. Funds are tight these days;
money is short and the needs are great. My
hope is to make every dollar count and go
to the causes intended; to (literally) get "the
biggest bang for the buck!" The old adage,
"When in doubt, check it out" still applies -
and maybe results in resources going where
they are intended, really helping people in
need, and doing good. I am happy to help
people to check and would suggest that
local resources would be the best place to
begin.

The key lessons life taught
me
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I thought, "Age should speak; advanced
years should teach wisdom." But it is the
spirit in a man, the breath of the Almighty,
that gives him understanding. It is not only
the old who are wise, not only the aged
who understand what is right. Therefore I
say: "Listen to me; I too will tell you what I
know." (Job 32:7-10)
Time heals almost everything. Give time
time. However good or bad a situation is, it
will change.
Don't take yourself so seriously. No one
else does. Believe in miracles. Your children


get only one childhood.
Don't audit life. Show up and make the
most of it now. Growing old beats the alter-
native -- dying young.
Envy is a waste of time. You already have
all you need. The best is yet to come. Yield. If
we all threw our problems in a pile and saw
everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up
and show up. Life isn't tied with a bow, but
it's still a gift.
Burn the candles, use the nice sheets,
wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a
special occasion. Today is special.
Over prepare, then go with the flow. Be
eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to
wear purple. The most important sex organ
is the brain.
No one is in charge of your happiness
but you. Frame every so-called disaster with
these words "In five years, will this matter?"
All that truly matters in the end is that you
loved. God loves you because of who God is,
not because of anything you did or didn't do.
Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting
everywhere. (By Regina Brett, 90 years old).

There's a wonderful world around us. Full of
fascinating places. Interesting people. Amazing
cultures. Important challenges. But sadly, our
kids are not getting the chance to learn about
their world. When surveys show that half of
America's youth cannot locate India or Iraq on
a map, then we have to wonder what they do
know about their world. That's why we created
MyWonderfulWorld.org. It's part of a free National
Geographic-led campaign to give your kids the
power of global knowledge. Go there today and
help them succeed tomorrow. Start with our free
parent and teacher action kits. And let your kids
begin the adventure of a lifetime.
It's a wonderful world. Explorel

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.

while she prepared to meet congressional
representatives in Washington D.C. to ask for
help in addressing the dire unemployment
figures. She calls it a "state of emergency."
She was thankful that voters chose her.
"I think the people, they believe in what


I'm doing," Ms. Johnson, who has also
served as the head of the local NAACP
branch, said. "They're in need. People are
recognizing our area and we are about the
business of serving people."
Joe Kyles, South Bay commissioner, was
uncontested for his seat on the board. Diane
Walker and Allie Biggs, both Pahokee com-
missioners, did not face challengers for their
seats, either.

will have the opportunity to keep track how
many vegetables, cups of water and physical
activity they received."
Healthier options are becoming more and
more visible to students; they have become
apt to bring this healthy savvy information to
the dinner table.
Along with healthier alternatives in
schools, vending machines are another item
that will become extinct in a few years. This
trend can already be seen at Glades Central
and Pahokee Elementary.
Mr. Anderson explains the trend: "We do
have vending machines here, two sodas and
two standard machines, but they are located
in the main office which limits students' ac-
cessibility."
Mavbe if thev don't see the lure of sodas


and chips, the kids won't miss not having
them.
"Awareness is the key" Mrs. Green states.
"The direction I hope Pahokee Elementary
takes is to educate our children about how
to make the right food choices. This I believe
will in turn reach parents' ears and hopefully
spread throughout the Glades community."
Because maybe children just do as they
see.
Pahokee limits the vending machine ac-
cess to students further than even Glades
Central. Regarding the vending machine,
Ms. Green is clear on those terms.
"Here at Pahokee Elementary, we do not
have vending machines at all for students.
The only ones here are located in the teach-
ers' lounge," she said.
To find out if you or your child is over-
weight or obese check your BMI on www.
cdc.gov. This website also gives tips to bal-
ance calories, healthy eating for a healthy
weight, preventing weight gain and more.
