'Chasing away



the darkness'


The makings of the
Lighthouse Cafe

By Ashley Causey
Special to The Sun
Paul Allen, Chuck Royal and
Jimmy Elrod saw a growing need
in the Glades Community: starv-
ing souls and empty bellies.
The plan was simple, to show
kindness, give food, and share
God's word.
Armed with doughnuts, cof-
fee, and tireless care, Mr. Allen,
Mr. Royal and Mr. Elrod filled the
void of the homeless with more
than just a hot meal.
"It took some time to gain the
people's trust at first," Mr. Allen
said. "They thought we were a
sting operation when we first be-
gan our early morning doughnut
and coffee ritual. It really took a
team effort."
But the need was greater than
doughnuts and coffee.
The current location of the
Lighthouse Caf6 came from one


of Mr. Royal's properties, which
had a kitchen and dining area.
The space was used to estab-
lish a soup kitchen that operates
five times a week serving lunch
Monday through Friday and
breakfast on Saturday to those in
need.
With the establishment in
place, the founders searched for a
name that fit its mission.
Martha Lynn Weeks, who is
responsible for the day-to-day
menu planning, grocery shop-
ping and organizing volunteers,
gave insight to why the name was
chosen.
"The Lighthouse Caf6 was
chosen because it has a biblical
message behind it," Mrs. Weeks
said.
"Jesus spoke; I am the light of
the world. Whoever follows me
will never walk in darkness but
have the light of life." She adds,
"This helped me along with the
Glades community realize that it

Belle Glade crimes extends statewide


Con artists extend
their reach through-
out Florida, Texas

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
Detectives in Belle Glade are
hot on the trail of a band of con
artists who are preying on unsus-
pecting consumers.
The modus operandi has
popped up in a number of cases
throughout Palm Beach County,
the state, as well as a spattering of
cases in states like Texas: a phone
call comes in with a person iden-


tifying themselves as a customer
service representative, represent-
ing companies like FPL and oth-
ers.
"You're late on your light bill,
Mr. Such-and-such," the person
on the other end of the line might
say. "I'm sorry, but if we don't re-
ceive payment soon, your service
will be cut."
The caller identifies himself --
or herself -- by name, is rarely rude
and mimics a customer service
rep so well that the victim, worried
about having their lights turned
off, offer their credit card number
to remedy the issue right away.
Officials believe the organi-


zation originates here, in Belle
Glade.
Detective Sgt. Trevor Cayson
said the investigation that he is
hoping will conclude successfully
with arrests, is a long and wind-
ing process of filtering through
the transactions that the criminals
make using the credit card num-
bers -- wire transfers, package
shipments, and more.
It seems the criminals know
what they're doing, and they've
done a suitable job hiding their
tracks. Call logs lead to pay-as-
you-go numbers long ago discon-
nected.
To the suspects, the scam is like


the job of a normal person mak-
ing an honest living, the sergeant
said, with the criminals reporting
to work on a regular schedule, the
frequency of which seems to have
escalated. Initially, this was the
work of two people, but over time
a network has formed as more
suspects have become involved.
"They're just constantly doing
it," said Sgt. Cayson.
The activity first started around
two years ago, and while plenty of
progress has been made -- officials
are hoping to zero in on suspects
in the next few weeks and assure

mation that identified respondents or their

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.

orectal cancer is the second leading cause
of cancer-related deaths in the United States
for men and women combined. Each year,
about 150,000 Americans are diagnosed
with colorectal cancer and about 50,000 die
from the disease. Regular screening through
colonoscopy can prevent colorectal cancer.
Lakeside Medical Center offers colonoscopy
screenings as an outpatient service.
"The problem with colon cancer is that
you could have it for years before symptoms
appear," said Daniel B. Kairys, MD, a surgeon
who performs colonoscopy screenings at
Lakeside Medical Center. "By the time colon
cancer shows up on its own, it could be too

Since it may take ten to fifteen years for pol-

screenings will detect colorectal cancers at
an earlier stage when the disease is easier
to treat.
The procedure itself takes only about 20
minutes. Patients are sedated so they are
comfortable and asleep during the proce-
dure. A thin, flexible tube called a colono-
scope is inserted through the body into the
colon. A video camera on the end of the
colonoscope is connected to a display moni-
tor so the physician can closely examine the
inside of the colon. If detected, growths like

who have no identified risk factors should
begin regular screening at age 50, according
to the American Cancer Society. If the test
is normal, then another screening should
follow in 10 years. Those with a family his-
tory of colorectal cancer, such as a mother,
father, brother or sister who has had the dis-
ease, should speak with their primary care
physician about screening at a younger age
and/or getting screened more frequently.
March is National Colorectal Cancer Aware-
ness month. To schedule a colonoscopy at
Lakeside Medical Center, consult with your
primary care physician, who will provide the
necessary referrals.
Nikerson Geneve, DO, is a primary care


preventive screenings like colonoscopies, to
oversee all aspects of his patients' health.
"As a primary care physician, I'm at the
helm of my patients' medical care," said Dr.
Geneve. "I have a relationship not only with
my patients, but also with the specialist who
is taking care of them. It's a team effort to
ensure and promote the well-being of the
patient."

Jesup: Outmanned and Outgunned


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
On February 8, 1838, General Jesup met
with several Seminole leaders near Fort Ju-
piter and negotiated peace terms. The Semi-
noles asked only that they be allowed to live
on reservation lands in the Everglades. Je-
sup agreed to write a letter to Washington
officials, if the Seminoles would agree to set
up camps adjacent to the Army encamp-
ment and wait patiently and peacefully for
word from Washington.
A letter arrived from Washington on
March 16, 1838, from the Secretary of War,
Poinsett, denying the Seminole's request. In
the letter, Poinsett instructed General Jesup
to continue the war until all Seminoles were
shipped west. General Jesup requested a
meeting with the Seminole leaders, so he
could review Poinsett's decision, but got no
response.
Jesup now felt the Seminoles were act-
ing "gun shy" and might somehow be privy
to Poinsett's decision, so he immediately
dispatched Colonel David E. Twiggs and the
Second Dragoons to capture the Indians be-
fore they could slip away into the trackless
Everglades.
Twiggs brought back 513 Seminoles, of
whom 151 were warriors. It was the largest
capture in the Second Seminole Indian War,
but raises a perplexing question by histori-
ans today.
How did a group of Seminoles that large
get caught napping by General Jesup, whose
reputation as a truce breaker preceded him
in the Everglades?
Shortly after this episode, General Je-
sup asked to be relieved of his command
because the Washington bureaucrats had
refused to grant the Seminoles, reservation
lands in the Everglades.
Jesup was very unhappy about this deci-
sion because the Everglades were swamp-
lands that no Americans desired, yet lands


A good corporate bean counter could
easily surmise that based on these figures,
there were approximately 1,800 hostile Sem-
inoles remaining in Florida.
On the other hand, an anthropologist
would quickly note an error in this figure,
stipulating that it failed to exclude the wom-
en, children and elderly, who weren't com-
batants.
All this speculation brings us to the


They were literally fighting for their lives
in a war that affected every facet of their life.
The Seminoles had become a beleaguered
people, fighting a war they could never win.
This life style was very stressing to the
Seminoles, whose culture, prior to the war
was sedimentary, living in villages, subsist-
ing on crops they grew and the livestock
they raised. Now they were a hunted people,
refugees in their own homeland that were


"The Seminoles had become a beleaguered people,
fighting a war they could never win."


question, how many Seminole warriors re-
mained in Florida after General Taylor took
command in 1838?
Using a simple formula, we can derive a
rough, but somewhat inaccurate figure that
still reveals a startling statistic. Let's assume
that the average size Seminole family con-
sisted of four children, two parents and two
grandparents.
This formula would equate to one able
bodied male warrior per eight Seminoles.
Divide the number eight into 1,800 and
we have 225 warriors. Again, this figure is
a rough estimate, so let's compensate and
raise the number to 300, which is probably
an overestimate.
A shocking revelation; the highest pos-
sible estimate shows only 300 Seminole
warriors were challenging the United States
in 1838!
The 300 Seminole warriors are reminis-
cent of an event that occurred thousands of
years earlier in ancient Greece, when 300
Spartan warriors challenged the entire Per-
sian Army at the Battle of Thermopylae. His-
tory repeats itself, so it is fair to say that the


forced to flee each time someone cried
"wolf."
Many of the Seminoles began to starve
because of the relentless chase. Soldiers saw
this terrible plight, while the Seminoles were
camping at Fort Jupiter and waiting on word
from Washington. The women wore ragged
clothes that scarcely covered their naked-
ness, while those that had nothing, were
forced to wear the discarded corn sacks that
soldiers threw away.
Seminole women were observed pick-
ing up the kernels of corn dropped by the
horses, so great was their starvation. This
wasn't an isolated story, but a phenomenon
that would repeat itself again in the South
during the Civil War, when Northern Armies
invaded.
Years ago, a college friend of mine told
me how his great- great grandparents sur-
vived a Tennessee winter by following a
Northern Army's mule train and living off
the undigested kernels of corn they dug
from the mule manure.
The Seminole war, like all other wars,
had a great impact on the children. No
doubt many died from starvation or were
weakened and fell victim to diseases that
took their lives.
There were also the orphans that lost
their fathers, mothers and sometimes entire
families. A Seminole told me about a skir-
mish that took place near to present day
Immokalee during the war.
Soldiers surprised a small band of Semi-
noles and attacked. A little girl was grabbed
and carried by a relative into the safety of
the Everglades. The girl's mother was never
found or heard from again.
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.

sil display of prehistoric animals that once

that would appease the Seminoles and end
the war. On May 15, 1838, a disgusted Gen-
eral Jesup turned his command over to Gen-
eral Zachary Taylor.
The retiring General Jesup had been very
successful during his 18-month campaign.
Statistics show 2,900 Indians were captured
and 100 killed during that period of time.
Commanders before Jesup had been very
unsuccessful, but they too had captured or
killed Seminoles.
At the beginning of the Second Seminole
Indian War, military analysts estimated there
were approximately 5,000 Seminoles living
in Florida. This estimate included the Semi-
noles living on the Apalachicola reservations
(200) that had elected not to fight, but chose
to move west.


Seminole warriors were like their prototype,
the Spartans, who fought to preserve their
homelands against a nation that wished to
deprive them of land and liberty.
The Seminoles were not only outmanned,
but also outgunned because they had other
logistical problems to overcome.
The American soldiers were supplied
with arms, food, clothing, and medical at-
tention.
Their sole mission was "search and de-
stroy." Unlike the soldiers, the Seminole
men not only fought, but in between battles,
hunted and foraged to support the families
they kept hidden away.
While on the run the Seminoles lost arti-
cles that they couldn't replace. Something as
simple as a knife was irreplaceable because
the Seminoles had few places to trade.

Choices
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Every day of our lives we are confronted
with choices. Every choice we make, big or
small, has consequences. For better or for
worse, we have to live with those conse-
quences. Some choices we make determine
the quality of our lives and the quality of our
relationships. Some of the choices we make
determine our destiny and have eternal con-
sequences.
Edwin Thomas was a master on stage. In
1863, he was with his actor brother John in
the play Julius Caesar. It was a foreshadow-
ing of things to come that Edwin's brother
who played the assassin in Julius Caesar is
the same John who took the role of assassin
in Ford's Theatre on an April night in 1865,
when he stole into the rear of the box in the
Washington Theater and shot Abraham Lin-
coln.
As you may have guessed, the last name
of the brothers was Booth: Edwin Thomas
Booth and John Wilkes Booth. Edwin was
never the same after that night. Shame from
his brothers' crime drove him into retire-
ment. He might never have returned to stage
had it not been for what happened at a New
Jersey train station. Edwin was awaiting his
coach when a well dressed young man,
pressed by the crowd, lost his footing and
fell in front of an oncoming train.
Without hesitation, Edwin locked a leg
around a railing, grabbed the man and
pulled him to safety.


Edwin did not recognize the young man
he'd rescued. The knowledge came weeks
later in a letter he carried in his pocket to
the grave, thanking Edwin for saving the life
of Robert Todd Lincoln, the son of Abraham
Lincoln.
Edwin and James Booth. Same father,
mother, profession, and passion. Yet one
chose life, the other death. How could it
happen? I don't know, but the story is not
unique.
Look at the two criminals on the cross-
es on either side of Jesus. The two crimi-
nals have much in common. Convicted by
the same system, condemned to the same
death, surrounded by the same crowd.
Equally close to the same Jesus.
How can two men see the same Je-
sus and one choose to mock Him and the
other choose to pray to Him? I don't know,
but they did. And when one prayed, Jesus
loved him enough to save him. When the
other mocked, Jesus loved him enough to
let him go even though it probably tore at
His heart.
God allowed them the choice. He does
the same for us.
God's heart for each of us is to make
choices that lead to abundant life. He says
to His people through Moses, "I have set be-
fore you life and death, blessings and curs-
es. Now choose life, so that you and your
children may live and that you may love the
Lord your God, listen to His voice, and hold
fast to Him." (Gen.30:19-20)
To choose Jesus is to choose life.


Good Friday; What to do in
the darkest of moments
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The next ten days recount the darkest
and most joyful days in this world. Sunday
is Palm Sunday, a moment of the Lord's tri-
umphal entry, then celebration of the Last
Supper with His disciples, arrest, trial, cru-
cifixion and death; all to be overshadowed
by Easter. We see the worst that the world
can do overcome by what God can do. It is a
witness to us all that good will triumph over
evil, right over wrong, life over death.
Much of the New Testament was written
during times of persecution, intolerance,
corruption and human tragedies of one sort
or another. Good Friday is the culmination
of what the world has to dish out; unfair-
ness, humiliation, persecution, the death of
an innocent, tragedy equal to any we have
seen before or since. With it, we regard the
responses of the central character in it all;
Jesus of Nazareth.
His last words convey to us a message
about our own tragedies and bad times, too.
Some are very human: "I thirst" or "Woman
behold your son..." Some are messages of
hope; "This day you will be with me in Para-
dise." At the darkest of moments there is still
hope; Jesus makes this plain to those who
rate themselves as unworthy but whom He
will take with Him. When the end comes,
Jesus says simply "It is finished!" and gives


up His spirit (Luke 19:30). I hear Him saying
that the world has done its worst and now
that is over; from henceforth things will be
different for God's people. There is another
passage that some interpret as seeing this
dark day so affecting Jesus that He feels for-
saken by God.
During these darkest of moments, Jesus
is quoted "My God, my God, why have you
forsaken me (Matthew 27:46)" It would be
easy to think the Lord felt forsaken by God;
but that wouldn't be like God to forsake His
son, nor for the Son to be forsaken by the
Father. What then? These words are also
found elsewhere in Scripture. They are from
the Book of Psalms, Psalm 22:1. "My God,
my God, why have you forsaken me?..."
Psalms ends with the reminder that "My soul
shall live for him, they shall be known as the
Lord's forever.
They shall come and make known to a
people yet unborn the saving deeds that He
has done. (Psalm 22:29-30)" Jesus was recit-
ing from the Psalter! He was worshipping,
saying the prayers from the great Prayer
Book of the Old Testament the Book of
Psalms! Feeling forsaken? No, worshipping!
A Psalm being recited is an appropriate act
of worship for this particular moment. Je-
sus, even at the worst of moments in histo-
ry, makes His spiritual offering to the Father.
That's the message of Good Friday to us all:
in the darkest of times, God is still ready to
hear, our prayers aren't in vain!
The Psalms also remind us God shall
help, "...and that right early." "The Lord Al-
mighty is with us"- always.

What killed Jesus Christ?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
If a death certificate were issued today for
Jesus Christ's death, it would read: "cardiac
and respiratory arrest due to severe pulmo-
nary edema due to traumatic and shock
due to crucifixion. That's the conclusion of
Frederick Zugibe, A Rockland County, N.Y.,
medical examiner who wrote a few years
ago "The Cross and the Shroud," a report on
his 30-year study of the crucifixion.
The investigation "was by far the most
challenging and intriguing experience that I
have ever encountered," said Zugibe, who
was also an adjunct associate professor of
pathology of Columbia University.
Zugibe pieced together a grimly detailed
picture of what he and theologian believe
happened to Christ in the hours before His
death. His findings are based on research
and the markings from the Shroud of Turin -
which he believes is Christ's burial cloth.
He writes that after Christ suffered intense
mental fatigue in the Garden of Gethsemane,
He was beaten with a whip made of leather
tails that had small weights of metal or bone.
Jesus was reduced to a bleeding, mangled
mass of welts and swellings, in traumatic
shock, no longer able to stand, and craving
water," Zugibe wrote.


He laterwas beaten with reeds and forced
to wear a crown of thorns. While carrying
His 50-pound cross to Golgotha, He suffered
severe lose of body fluids in the midday heat.
By the time of crucifixion, "Christ robe was
literally glued to His body," by blood from
His wounds, Zugibe said.
To study the effects of being suspended
from the cross, Zugibe conducted his experi-
ments with a number of male volunteers
who hung from a 92 X 78 inch cross with
leather gauntlets around their hands and a
belt around their feet.
The volunteers showed an increase of
pain, psychological feelings, sweating, re-
spiratory distress and muscle twitching after
seven to eight minutes.
"A striking observation noted in all sus-
pended volunteers was that the body did
not touch the cross except in the shoulder
region, where there was very slight contact,
" Zugibe wrote. The result was a position
with the head arched backward against the
upright vertical section of the cross to relieve
the strain on the shoulders. From the re-
search, Zugibe said it is hard to understand
why Pontius Pilate reportedly was shocked
that Christ died in less than six hours.
"The significance of mental suffering is
nor frequently realized," Zugibe wrote. "Je-
sus was severely flogged. Add to this the
scourging and the crowning of thorns, the
effects of carrying the cross and the cruci-
fixion process, and anyone with a medical
background cringes and wonders converse-
ly how He lasted as long as He did."

A sit down with Fuller, Glades Central's valedictorian


By Mirasha Brown
Special to The Sun

Matletha Fuller is a very busy person.
Despite this, she shows people everywhere
that through all of the bad, there is a light at
the end of the tunnel.
Miss Fuller has been a resident of the
Glades her entire life and is a senior at Glades
Central Community High School. Among
her accomplishments, she is the valedicto-
rian for the Class of 2010, with a GPA of 3.97
and an HPA of 4.91, the senior class presi-
dent, and the vice president of her school's
chapter of the National Honor Society.
Aside from being involved in a handful of
school activities, she is a firm advocate for
the community. Matletha is the President of
the Glades Youth NAACP and the Vice Presi-
dent of the Delta GEMS of Delta Sigma Theta
Sorority, Inc. She is also a member of the
dance troupe S.B.I., to name a few.
Miss Fuller has a lot on her plate, but took
the time to answer a few questions submit-
ted to her.
Q: As a child, what inspired you?
A: I was inspired by the books that I read
as a child. Reading and learning about the
lives of strong, intelligent Black women in-
spired me to persevere beyond all predis-
posed expectations of myself. Even when the


stories were littered with the supernatural,
things that I understood I could never mir-
ror in reality, the characters would always
make it seem that anything was possible. I
always sought to pattern my life in this way.
Even if my dreams and aspirations seemed
unattainable or too fantastic to ever achieve,
I want to die knowing that at least I tried.
Q: What do you think makes you stand
out from the crowd?
A: I know that where I am right now
wasn't perpetuated solely by my own self-
motivation, because if that were the case, I
would probably have dropped out of high
school by now.
I never try and make myself better than
anyone else. I am thankful to God for the life
that he has helped shape for me, and I only
pray that he continues to bless me further
down the road.
Q: Has there ever been a time in your life
when you felt like you weren't trying hard
enough?
A: I am guilty of being a perfectionist. Ev-
ery time that I do something, I always think
that there was something I could've done
to make it better. It's kind of scary always
feeling that you're not trying hard enough.
But, thankfully, God made me a "functional"
perfectionist. I can live with my faults and
flaws. I'm not blowing my brains out at the


first sight of failure.
Q: What was the hardest thing you ever
had to go through?
A: A week before my 16th birthday, my
father finally relented to his battle with can-
cer. I was devastated and almost opted to
give up. Weeks and months passed before
I resolved to use his death as fuel for my
passion to become a better person, a better
woman, and a better individual.
Q: What did you like the most about
growing up in the Glades?
A: I love the feeling that everyone is like
family. The "small-town" atmosphere gives
me a comfort in knowing that when need-
ed, I can go to almost any person for advice.
While things can get hectic with everyone
knowing everything about everybody, the
Glades will always be my home.
Q: How does it feel to be the valedicto-
rian of the class of 2010 for GCCHS?
A: It's a cornucopia of excitement, relief,
and pressure. I am so proud to have made
it to the pinnacle of success at my school,
but thankful that it is all over. I only hope
that I can represent my class well for the re-
mainder of this year and in all of my future
endeavors.
Q: What are your plans after you gradu-
ate from UF?
A: I will most likely attend law school,


whether at UF or Yale I am undecided.
There, I will be studying to become a juve-
nile defense lawyer.
I plan to begin developing programs to
assist in decreasing recidivism rates in the
criminal justice system, particularly with ju-
veniles.
Q: Where do you see yourself ten years
from now?
A: I hope to see myself alive and healthy,
surrounded by honest and dependable
friends, and strong in my faith in Christ.
Q: What advice would you give to kids in
the Glades about education?
A: It's free. Stop complaining about what
students on the coast have that you don't.
It's life and everyone wasn't meant to have
the world handed to them on a silver plat-
ter.
Take advantage of the opportunities that
are given to you, because no matter how
small, someone had to work hard for you to
have them. And if you don't like what you see
in front of you, take the initiative and change
it. So, in the future, you can look back on all
your successes and say, "I worked for every-
thing that I had in my life, and I am a better
person because of it."

is our job to help and serve other people."
Over the last two years, the Lighthouse
Caf6 has experienced an increase in the
meals served.
Mrs. Weeks explains the increase of the
meals was due to the recent economy. "The
meals we served have multiplied. We now
serve about 25 meals more a day."
With the increase of meals, the Light-
house Caf6 was met with hardship.
"There was a brief period of where we
struggled to have the necessary funds to stay
open five days a week," Mrs. Weeks remem-
bers, "We only had the funds to stay open
three days a week."
The Lighthouse Caf6 was able to pull
through the hardship by the aid provided


from the daily food bank in West Palm Beach
and the US Department of Agricultural Food
Commodities.
The aid received from those two sources
enabled the Lighthouse Caf6 to go back to
their five days a week schedule.
"The people of Belle Glade are another
reason we were able to keep out doors
open. They have been very generous with
the Lighthouse Caf6." Mrs. Weeks added.
Many churches are also involved with giv-
ing funds throughout the year and preparing
meals at the Caf6.
Last Sunday, the Community United
Methodist Church used the offering collect-
ed at the Black Gold Jubilee Gospel Sing to
support the ministry of the Lighthouse Caf6.
Donating money is not the only way peo-
ple can get take apart in the continuation of
the Lighthouse Caf6.
Volunteering is another approach that
the Glades can get involved.


Julia Price, a first time volunteer, describes
her experience volunteering at the Caf6.
"There are a lot more people who are in
poverty than I thought." She continues, 'Al-
though that surprised me, it made me want
to become more involved within my com-
munity."
Miss Price learned more than just cook-
ing breakfast. "I gained several important
values. The most important value was being
thankful for what you have."


"People within the Glades community
should definitely volunteer at the Lighthouse
Caf6," Miss Price states. "They truly need
extra hands down there, plus it's fun," she
adds with a laugh.
The ideals behind the Lighthouse Caf6 are
simple but powerful: food, love and hope.
Mr. Allen explains, "The Lighthouse Caf6
started years ago out of the hearts of those
who wanted to do something for the lost
and forgotten of the Glades."

that they know who these people are -- it
has been slow and steady coming.
Because some of the incidents have hap-
pened in other counties, cases encounter
complications and become more labor
intensive while agencies work together to
solve the crimes.
For the victim, the crime continues
sprouting prickly thorns. Months after their
victimization, people spend quite a bit of
time rebuilding their credit, or establishing
with various credit reporting agencies that


they weren't responsible for the outlandish
expenses they now owe.
The sergeant urges residents to be wary:
never hand out personnel information, es-
pecially to suspect individuals (FPL will not
contact you by phone if you miss a payment,
he said).
The criminals target everyone, with no
seeming discrimination of the elderly, or mi-
norities, although the Hispanic community
has felt the brunt of it here lately, said Sgt.
Cayson.
"It's just a crime of opportunity," he said.
"They target our community and all walks of
life. They'll call 11 people, and maybe one
will give them what they want. That one is
all they need."
