First Habitat For Humanity Home Being Constructed in Pahokee


Couple Has Their Prayer
For A House Answered

By Brenda Bunting
Special to The Sun
Some people say God answers prayer. Just ask
Darren and Silvia Hill of Pahokee. The couple says
they began praying last year about owning their
own home.
They had some specific requests for the Lord:
"Could it be in Pahokee, where they both grew
up? Would He make it big enough to accommo-
date their large, merged family of eight children;
four of whom still live at home?"
Their prayers were answered a few months
back. Silvia says a co-worker came into her office
at Family Central in Belle Glade.
She asked if she knew about the Habitat for
Humanity program. She then gave her a flyer that
told where to apply for the first Habitat home be-
ing built in the Glades in Pahokee no less.
Silvia filled out the application. The rest is his-
tory. The Hills were chosen over many applicants
to be the first family to receive a Habitat for Hu
vanity house in the Glades a four bedroom,
one and a half bath home.

A group of over 20 Habitat for Humanity volunteers recently showed up at 311 Cypress Av-
enue in Pahokee to help hoist up the many trusses needed for the first Habitat For Humanity
home to be built in the Glades.
"We were so excited," says Silvia. This blessing however, was not without some

vide "sweat equity" in the building of their new
home.
Other rules include: They must be first time
home buyers with the ability to pay monthly
mortgage payments of between $500 and $650 a
month.
They have to attend monthly classes and part
ner meetings to learn about the responsibilities of
homeownership.
They have to attend and work with Consumer
Credit Counseling Services to develop a budget
and overcome any credit problems and attend a
First Time Homebuyers workshop at CCCS.
The Hills also had to save enough money for
the closing costs and other expenses common to
owning a home.
Lisa Archer, Director of Development for
Habitat in Palm Beach County says, "Our partner
families also agree to partner with us by investing
500 hours of sweat equity. They help build their
home."

Three-Hour-Old Infant Left With Crews At Pahokee Fire Station


Mother Leaves Son Under
Safe Haven Law

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Sun
A mother dropped off her newborn child
at a local fire rescue station in Pahokee un-
der the Safe Haven law.
Some may it sounds like a terrible thing --
having to be in a position in which a parent
would have to make the decision of giving


8 16510 00017 7


up a child.
But whatever those circumstances might
have been, there were no questions being
asked when this parent visited the fire sta-
tion and handed the child to a fire fighter
on Monday. All that responding fire fighters
would learn was that the boy was recently
born and the mother could not care for him
anymore.
The case is not one of child abandon-
ment, but is actually a protection that par-
ents across the state are offered: to leave
their child at a Safe Haven-designated lo-


cation, a hospital, a fire station where the
child will be cared for before a new home is
found for them.
Under the law, a parent can leave their
children at such a location if the child is
seven days old or less. As long as the child
is healthy, the parent or parents do not face
the risk of prosecution for abandonment or
neglect.
The reasoning is that overwhelmed par-
ents will not resort to far harsher extremes
because they cannot care for a child, "those
cases where people put newborns in dump-


sters and garbage cans," said Don Delucia,
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue's public in-
formation officer.
Mr. Delucia said it is rare to see someone
take advantage of the Safe Haven sites at
most county fire stations. He wonders him-
self what compels a parent to come to terms
with having to leave their child.
"Whether it's the economy, you never
know what the circumstances are," he said.

The Big Picture: Life!
BY REVEREND SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Someone wrote a book about "All I really
needed to know, I learned in kindergarten."
Pick up
after your
self. Share,
Be courteous, --
Ask for help
if you need
it, the kind
of things that R
were learned
in formative
years that
carry us; un
less we lose
our common
sense.
What we

"sophisticat-
ed" or "com-
plicated" or

reflects the
wisdom that Rev. Thomas.
must ultimate
ly come from
God.
I know an administrator who found some
damage to company equipment. The staff be-
gan to question "Who was the last to use it?"
and worried about blame.
The administrator knew that the equipment
was old, bound to break down sooner or later
and no guilt was to be felt by the last person
to use it.
What a refreshing surprise for the staff!
A common sense approach transcended
maneuvering, accusations, fear of blame and
bad feelings.
One church group sponsors a camp for
children whose parents are incarcerated;
something that might not appeal to everyone
but a ministry to those who are neglected, in
need, and can stand knowing someone cares.
Common sense says these children hurt
too; maybe more than most of us. A class one
day did an art project and was asked to vote on
the best drawing.
One boy did an outstanding job but he was
unpopular. As the class ranked the drawings,
I watched his face change. Fortunately, the
teacher intervened and the children realized
what they had done; choosing friendship over
talent. The lesson was taught: even the unpop
ular can have real talent.
A rabbi that I knew some years ago told me
of his ordination examinations.
The older rabbis asked what should be done
if someone starts to bleed during a service.
The correct answer was that you interrupt
ed worship and did what you could to save a
life. Some might believe that nothing should be
done to interrupt worship but miss the larger
point.
Likewise, healing is work, and those who
object adamantly insist no work shall be done
on the Sabbath.
There is a New Testament parallel; the dis
ciples of Jesus were hungry one Sabbath and
as they were going through the fields began
to pick some of the heads of grain and eat
them(Matthew 12:1 ff).
The experts in the law in Jesus' day say
"Aha!" "Look! Your disciples are doing what
is unlawful on the Sabbath (v. 2)." Jesus points
out that David and his companions ate conse
crated bread, unlawful, and that the priests of
the day were likewise "working" and desecrat
ing the day (but are innocent).


Then, Jesus encountered a man with a
shriveled hand (v.9) and heals him- on the Sab-
bath. In the midst of all the "complications",
the Lord proclaims the prayer of His people
- "To life!" He proclaimed "I have come that
they may have life, and have it to the full (John
10:10)"
In the meantime, let's keep our simplicity;
love of others, and avoid the pitfalls of missing
the gift of life.

Tomorrow is a Day Away
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
As the story goes, the devil called an emer-
gency meeting in hell. The agenda: how to
increase the number of people going to hell.
One demon
offered, "Let
me launch an
all out attack
on people's
belief in the
Bible and in
Jesus as the
Son of God.
Before I'm
finished, they
won't trust ei
their one, and
hell will be
full."
The devil
was im-
pressed and
released the
demon to
launch his
doubt offen
sive. After
awhile, Satan
reconvened Pastor Hicks.
his council
of senior de-
mons. He
wasn't pleased. The number of people coming
to hell was only slightly up. "This isn't working!
We need a better idea."
Demon two offered a plan he believed to be
foolproof. "I will launch an all out campaign to
convince people it's too hard and they'll have
to give up too much to follow Jesus." Satan
was fascinated and wished the demon great
success.
It didn't happen. Traffic coming into hell did
increase some, but not nearly enough to satisfy
the devil. He wanted many more.
The other demons were afraid to offer a
plan for fear of failure and the devil's displea
sure, except one. Demon three asked Satan
for permission to launch a top secret strategy
one which he would only reveal after the re
sults were in. The devil was skeptical, but since
nothing else was working, he let demon three
put his secret plan into action.
Within weeks, the floodgates opened. More
people were ending up in hell than any of the
demons had ever seen. Satan convened his de
mon council to find out what this strategy was
that was working so well.
The third demon explained: "I actually told
people they do need Jesus and that they should
give Him their life, but I tell them to come to Je
sus ... tomorrow."
Many people have gone to hell because of
"tomorrow."
"I know I should open my heart to Jesus. I'll
get right with Him tomorrow."
Tomorrow may be too late. As the Scrip
tures remind us, "Now is now is the time of
God's favor, now is the day of salvation." (2
Corinthians 6:2) When a rescuer extends his
hand to you in a burning or collapsed building,
you grab it.


You don't wait.
Jesus is extending His rescuing hand to you
today, even as you are reading this article. Your
chance to live is now. He is the tug you feel in
your heart. None of your reasons for waiting
are worth risking the consequences. Now is
the day of salvation.
God said it. Don't risk it. Our rescue hap-
pens when we grab our Rescuer with both
hands and say, "I'm totally depending on You.
My life is in Your hands."
If they could, many people on the other side
of eternity would tell us, "Don't wait for tomor
row." For them, tomorrow never came.

Wrong Church!
BY JACKIE MILLER
First Christian Church
A preacher was approached by a man who
expressed a desire to become a member of
the church. The man said, "I don't want to
be called on for any service such as visiting
the newcomer, the sick, etc., or work on the
bus ministry, or even teach a class on Sunday.
Don't expect me to worship often as I have a
house on the lake. And when I do attend, my
giving won't amount to much as I have other
payments to make each month."
The preacher thought for a moment and
replied, "I think you are at the wrong church.
The church you are looking for is three blocks
down the street."
Curious, the man followed the directions
and soon came to an old abandoned, broken
down and boarded up church building. It was
out of business as a result of too many mem-
bers like this man wanted to be. The chruch is
the people! A church without active members
is a dead church, and the kind of religion that
doesn't cost anything in time, money, and sac
rifice is a dead religion.
David, one of God's servants in the Old Tes-
tament, said, "Neither will I offer burnt offer-
ings unto the Lord my God of that which dost
cost me nothing" (II Samuel 24:24). Jesus said,
"For which of you, intending to build a tower
sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost,
whether he have sufficient to finish it?" (Luke
14:28).
Jesus also said, "And he that does not take
up his cross and follow me is not worthy of
Me" (Luke 10:38).
The greatest price ever paid for anything
was the price paid for Christ's Church!
Acts 20:28 tell us that "He purchased the
church with His own blood." Furthermore,
when Christ returns He's coming back for only
one thing, His Church!
All else will be lost and be cast away from
His presence.
In Matthew 25:46 Jesus says, "And these
shall go away into everlasting punishment: but
the righteous into life eternal."

was issued recognizing Sept. 23 as Infant Mortal-
ity Awareness Day.
Pat Dobbins, Administrator for the Glades and
Hendry County Health Departments presented
information to Glades County Commissioners
about infant mortality and about the Healthy Start
program. Also, Terri Helfinstine, a board member
for the Healthy Start Coalition, provided the Com-
missioners with educational materials about the
program.
The Healthy Start Coalition of Southwest Flor-
ida's statement is: "Saving Babies' Lives Through
Preventive Care. We continually strive to reduce
the number of infant deaths, and the number of
premature or low birth weight babies, through-
out Southwest Florida."
Healthy Start is a not-for-profit serving Col-
lier, Glades, Hendry and LeeCounties since 1992.
They help 17,000-plus at-risk pregnant women
and babies each year. Their goals are to prevent


infant deaths and premature babies, and promote
health and developmental outcomes for children
up to age three. The infant mortality rate in South-
west Florida has decreased by 55 percent since
the program began (1992-2008).
In 2008, in Southwest Florida, 155 babies were
still born, or died before their first birthday, and
921 babies were born too small or prematurely
placing them at-risk for future health and develop-
mental problems. The leading cause of fetal and
infant deaths is the health of the mother before
she gets pregnant.
In honor of babies that have died, more than
a thousand pinwheels will be placed in each of
four memorial gardens in Naples, Fort Myers, La-
Belle, and Clewiston. These pinwheels will be on
display Sept. 23-26.
Pinwheel Memorial Garden Dedication Cer-
emonies Schedule for Sept. 23:
*9 a.m. Labelle courthouse
12:30 p.m. Children's Hospital of South-
west Florida


*4 p.m. Naples Community Hospital
Veteran newscaster, Patrick Comer, will be
on hand to conduct the ceremonies. Kyra Oliver,
from the Hayes Foundation, will speak on the top-
ic of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).
"Forevery $1s .. ..i.... i... ii.: an unhealthy
birth, $6 is saved in neonatal intensive care costs,
recurrent hospital and medical expenses paid by
Medicaid, exceptional and remedial education,
child abuse and neglect investigations, disability
and dependency costs."(Source: "Florida's Chil-
dren: Their Future is in Our Hands", 1997, Florida

Sit Down Interview With Local Baseball Star Chad Blackwell

Clewiston's Native Son Reports That 'He Has Plenty Left In The Tank'


BY JUAN LOPEZ
INI

In an area where football is king, Clewis-
ton's own Chad Blackwell is showing that
baseball can be equally rewarding. Begin-
ning at the age of four with the city's tee-ball
league, baseball has been an integral part of his
life ever since.
Beginning in 2004, he was drafted by the
Kansas City Royals and spent time training in
their minor league team.
From there he has played with several other
minor league teams, independent league teams
and, most recently, finished a season in Canada
with the Edmonton Capitals.
He sat down with this reporter for an inter-
view and shared his perspective on the sport;
as well what his many experiences have taught
him.
Upon meeting Chad Blackwell, I couldn't
help but feel relaxed as he sat down at the table
in his mother's house, where he was visiting,
dressed in Dolphins T shirt and sport shorts.
His laid-back and down-to-earth attitude
belie the serious side of him where baseball is
concerned.

Q: So, tell me, what is the one thing that
scares you the most?
A: Failure itself.

Q: There will be people who will read this
interview and will think that since you haven't
made it to the Major Leagues -I. -...:have
failed. What would be your response?
A: There is a lot that people don't understand
about the sport of baseball. It can be hard to
understand if you're not in it or around it.
There are many levels of Minor League base-
ball and so many players put there that it can
be difficult to even get into a college team. I feel
so blessed that I was able to play for Pensacola
Junior College and University of South Carolina.
I was then blessed further to play for a Divi-
sion 1 team and then get drafted; especially since
I started in the small program that is Clewiston
baseball. I wouldn't trade my experiences for
anything.
It made r... ..... 1. i i felt always on the
lower end of the totem pole and it kept me push-
ing to reach that top level. I was a prospect for
a few years and I've played in the independent
leagues.
It was there that I was picked up by the
Blue Jays for two years in the Minor League
team. From there, I was with Angels for a year.
I just had a successful year in the Independent
Leagues.
I'm hoping to get picked up for a winter ball
job; where I can be noticed and picked up from
there.

Q: You do realize that when this article runs,
you will be a role model to many local ball play
ers. How do you feel about that?
A: I've always come to Clewiston whenever I
can to visit family and I've worked with the high
school teams when I could. It feels good to be a
role model.


PHUTU/JUAN LUPEZ
Chad Blackwell with his mother, Alice Witt, as he takes a small vacation with family and
friends.


I remember when I would meet minor
league players, like those of the Fort Myers
Miracle, it was exciting for them to shake my
hand or sign an autograph. I see that everywhere
I go and it's an honor for to be a role model.
Whenever possible, my teammates and I will
visit a school or a community event. It's about
being able to give back.

Q: When you were a child, what Major
League team did you dream of playing for?
A: The Atlanta Braves. I grew up watching
TBS and WGN so I got the Braves and the Cubs. I
enjoyed watching Steve Avery, Greg Maddox and
John Smoltz play.

Q: How was your season with the Edmon-
ton Capitals and how is baseball in Canada?
A: It was a great season and it went by
quickly; seasons usually do since you can't wait
for them to start and when they do, they're over
before you know it.
The owned by the Edmonton Oilers (hockey
team) and we played in some exotic locales
such as Maui. I got play with several big name
players as Larry Bigbie ex-Cardinal and Orioles
players and Lou Pote, formerly of the Angels and
Indians.
Canadian fans are devoted and are nice peo-
ple. The fan support for the teams of the teams
of the Golden Baseball League is amazing. You
figure since it's colder that the support would be
a less but it's not the case.
It doesn't matter if they're watching play or
webgems of the visiting team, the fans will go
crazy. They're true baseball fans. They want to
see their team win but they love the plays and


the hitting.


Q: What is your highest pitch speed and
what are your pitches and pitching style?
A: I usually pitch between 89 to 92 miles per
hour. I occasionally touch 94 miles per hour. I'm
a setup/closer. A lot of my pitching is based on
deception.
I throw a fastball, curveball, slider and
change-up. However, much of my effectiveness
comes from deception.
I change my arm angle between three-quar-
ter, side-arm and submarine. You have to change
it up and keep them guessing.
Baseball is very mental and you have to
know your weaknesses, especially as a pitcher.
I'm not a perfectionist on the mound. I love to
pitch inside.


Young pitchers are afraid of doing for various
reasons. You have to pitch inside to keep batters
off guard and guessing when you finally decide
to pitch outside.

Q: If you were at a baseball camp and the
children asked you what is it that they need to
learn or acquire so that can make it in baseball,
what would you tell them?
A: Work ethic. No matter what you have to
do, it's all about pushing yourself. When I started
pitching, I wasn't that fast but as I progressed my
speed increased.
I changed arm angles and threw strikes
because I had to. I always worked harder and
learned quickly. It all came 1, ,I. .i. i. the stuff I
taught myself and the knowledge that I acquired
later on as I progressed.
I didn't have a scholarship when I went to
Pensacola. I was a preferred walk-on and I went
there and did what I had to do.

Q: Do you feel content with your career? Is it
at a high point or is just getting started?
A: I keep pushing myself through the off
season no matter what. I do the best that I can
all the time.
There is always more for me to do. They are
people relying on me to ._. i 1 i. job done, so I
have to keep pushing myself. You can't afford to
take time off. Baseball is a year round sport.
I'm not at my peak. I still have plenty left in
the tank. In my last few seasons, I have been
throwing harder and I have developed mentally
from a "thrower" to a "pitcher." In other words,
you have the abilities and the tools but you don't
know the game yet.
The mental side of it; knowing what is going
on the game a every moment. Only experience
will help with this. Pitchers do what they can to
setup the hitters as much as possible.

'Q: i 1 .. ., most memorable game?
A: When I got to pitch in Omaha in the Col-
lege World Series. I had to pitch against LSU and
I was in zone, I had my mind set on the task at
hand.
When I got to the mound, they announced
a record crowd of 29,000. I did a 360 of the
stadium and people were standing and I realized
that I was in the spotlight. Nothing else could
top that memory; unless I was to make my big
league debut.

Hendry Airglades Airport looks to join privatization program

If chosen, local airport could see new investments from private sector


BY ROGER HARRISON
Hendry County Economic Development
President
Airglades Airport, located in eastern Hendry
County, near Clewiston, Florida, has formally
submitted a pre-application to the Federal Avia-
tion Administration for consideration of admis-
sion into the Airport Privatization Pilot Program
(APPP).
If accepted, Airglades will occupy the fifth and
final spot in the APPP program.
Airglades Airport enjoys a strategic location
along U.S. 27 and State Road 80, but since it
ceased functioning as a military air base during
World War II has not been a significant contribu-
tor to job creation or economic development.
The Hendry County Board of County Com-
missioners (HCBOCC) and the Hendry County
Economic Development Council (HCEDC) are
looking to change that, and 1i, 1 i. 1 the APPP
could be a powerful vehicle in which to deliver
economic development and job creation, while
improving the aviation system in South Florida.
The HCBOCC has determined that the airport
is a vital component to achieving new economic
development opportunities for the county and
believes that private sector development of the
airport will unleash its full potential to be an eco-
nomic engine for the county and the region.
i.i .1 I. is an asset to this community, and
the Privatization Pilot Program only enhances its
ability to pay the dividends of job creation and ad-

sifying our agricultural-based economy in Hendry
County," said Hendry County Administrator Judi
Kennington-Korf.
"The County commissioners' vision in ad-
vancing this project shows foresight and wisdom
rarely seen in rural communities such as ours."
Roger Harrison, President and CEO of the
HCEDC, echoed Kennington-Korf's sentiments.
"The potential for growth surrounding this air-
port is staggering. ,.1 ,i oi1. 11i.. and geographical-
ly, Airglades is a diamond in the rough. Perfectly
situated in the middle of eight major seaports, on
U.S. 27 and State Road 80, and within a two-hour

as a viable long-term solution to our struggling
economy."
More about the FAA Privatization Pilot Pro-
gram:
The FAA APPP is a program mandated by Con-
gress that allows a very limited number of pub-
licly owned airports to be able to convey those
airports to a private sector entity for the purpose
of encouraging or enabling those airports to be-
come economic and capacity contributors to the
nation's aviation system.
If Hendry County's application is accepted, the
airport will join Chicago's Midway Airport, Louis
Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans,
Puerto Rico's Luis Munoz Marin International Air-
port, and Briscoe Field in Gwinnett County, Geor-
gia in the FAA program.

Special to INI

Glades Day 29, Clewiston 20
A huge, momentum-gaining win
for Glades Day resulted in a heart
breaking loss for the Tigers.
Clewiston and Glades Day met
for the 12th time in a series led by
the Tigers (7-4, now 7-5), both want
ing to walk away with more than
just a win.
For Coach Walker and his Gators,
the win meant an end to an upset
ting 0-2 streak, which also gave GDS
their first ever victory against Clewis-
ton at Cane Field.
"We did a good job. We had
to shuffle some people around on
defense after the injury early in the
game ... but we played with heart
tonight," Coach Walker said after
the game. "Clewiston did great,
they're well coached and they're
always a tough team to play."
After Friday night, he couldn't be
any closer to the truth.
Clewiston received the ball first
and wasted no time putting six
on the board; throwing a 44-yard
touchdown on the fourth play of the
opening drive. The Gators quickly
returned the favor, scoring on a 73-
yard rush by Kelvin Taylor (288 yards
on 30 carries, for two touchdowns)
on the fifth play of their first drive.
The next Clewiston possession
only lasted three plays, but instead
of a touchdown was ended by an in-
terception that was returned to their
own 6 yard line by GDS's Steven Wil-
liams. The Gators' offense finished
the job on first down with a six-yard
rush by Taylor; and in an attempt to
null the crowd went for a two-point
conversion that was denied by an
"illegal formation" penalty, leaving
the score at 13-7.
Clewiston's next drive lasted six
plays that led to a punt, but a "rough-
ing the kicker" call saved their drive;
only to give the ball up on the next
play by a fumble.
Despite fighting through two
fourth-down conversions, Glades
Day managed to work their way
down the field and add another six
to the score; then, once again, failed
to convert on a two-point attempt,
only upping the score to 19-7.
Clewiston finally answered with
a huge 42-yard rush by Ahmad Rich-
ards, moving the Tigers to the third
yard line where Virthavious Robin-
son and the offensive line finished
off the drive with a touchdown. The
extra point was blocked, only nar
rowing the gap to 19-13 with 8:09
left in the second quarter.
Glades Day's penalty plagued
drive led to a failed fourth down con-
version, giving the Tigers the ball at
the 40 yard line; though they came

to Glades Day.


up short and were forced to punt
seven plays into the drive.
Glades Day's next possession fol-
lowed the same pattern and resulted
in a punt, but a bad snap caused a
fumble and gave the Tigers the ball
at the two-yard line. Virthavious Rob-
inson, once again, sealed the deal,
and an extra point by Grant Polhill
put Clewiston up 21-20 with only 38
seconds remaining in the half.
Then just as the crowds started
heading toward the concession
stands, Clewiston's squib kick was
scooped up by Eaton Spence and re-
turned 65 yards for a touchdown.
An unsportsmanlike conduct call
just after the play led to controversy
after Clewiston coaches mistakenly
agreed to take the yards on the kick-
off, then realized that they had set
the Gators up with a three-yard shot
at regaining a seven-point lead. A
five-minute sideline debate led to
the decision being overturned, and
an 18-yard PAT put the Gators up 26-
20 at the end of the first half.
An explosive first half led to a de-
fensive struggle in the second half.
Glades Day opened up the sec-
ond half slowly and ended up punt-
ing the ball away, giving Clewiston
the ball at the 20-yard line. Two quick
plays led to an interception and gave
the Gators the ball back with great
field position. The possession went
nowhere quickly and ended with a
36-yard field goal attempt that had
the distance, but floated to the right.
Clewiston's next drive ended in
another quick two plays and a fum-
ble. The turnover gave the Gators
the ball and another shot at the end-
zone. The Tiger defense held tight
after nearly giving away a pass that
was dropped in the endzone; giving
the Glades Day kicker a chance to
redeem himself with a 26-yard field
goal, raising the score to 29-20, and
making it a two possession game.


The rest of the game remained
scoreless and was haunted by
cramps, injuries, and penalties; and
though the Tigers repeatedly threat
ened to reach the endzone, turn-
overs seemed to hold them back.
An interception on their last drive
ended the game as the Gators came
out and melted whatever time was
left on the clock.
"Turnovers and special teams..."
said Clewiston Head Coach Roth af
ter the game, blaming the loss to the
team's five turnovers and the kickoff
that was returned for a touchdown.
"We did what we wanted to do;
we played hard and I'm proud of
that. I'm proud of the effort, but I'm
tired of just being proud of effort,"
continued Coach Roth as he ad-
dressed his team post-game.
"0-3 isn't how we would've liked
to start out the season, but we start
district play next week and we're
0-0 in the district. I know it's tough,
but we've got to keep our heads up
and play hard. We became a better
football team tonight," stated Coach
Roth; and despite walking away with
a loss, he was right.
Take away the five turnovers, and
every aspect of Clewiston's game
looked tighter.
At this point, the only thing the Ti-
gers can do is shake off the loss and
move on. They get their first shot at
district play next week against Island
Coast, and in all reality, that's what
really matters. On the other hand,
the Gators are getting their second
shot at district play after losing their
first in an upset to Jupiter Christian.
"We just need to play cleaner
football," stated Coach Walker,
"Tonight we came out and played
Glades Day football." As long as they
do the same and the team performs
at the level they did against Clewis-
ton, Coach Walker and his team
shouldn't have a problem this Friday


against Village Academy.

American Heritage 18,
Glades Central 20
Glades Central skimmed by with
a narrow victory last Friday against
Palm Beach County's American
f- [i, '..
Quarterback Jamarious Rowley
struggled throughout the night, only
completing 11 of 51 pass attempts
for 214 yards. The Raiders' rushing
game also fell short, only accounting
for 89 yards in 32 attempts.
The win and excitement of the
game can be credited to the defense,
who only allowed 133 yards of total
offense; and to the last minute rally
that put the Raiders up 20-10 late in
the game.
Glades Central wide receiver
Kevin Benjamin, who was injured
earlier in the game, limped onto
the field late in the game to help the
Raiders convert on a fourth-and-five
that put the game just out of reach
for! ,. ,i. i, i.i il I-_

Pahokee 0, Dwyer 52
The Blue Devils walked away
with heads-hung-low after last
week's matchup against Dwyer.
Just one week earlier the team
managed to pull off a 46-0 win
over Inlet Grove; but nationally rec-
ognized Dwyer High was just too
much for the young team to over-
come. The Pahokee offense only
managed to gain 5 yards throughout
the entire first half, with the only first
down coming from a penalty against
the Panthers. Overall the Blue Dev-
ils' offense only accounted for 72
yards; 2 through the air, and 70 on
the ground.
The team gets a shot at redemp-
tion this week, on the road against
Cardinal Newman.

Health Human Services offers Spanish Website


New Site Offers
Medical Help to
Latino Community

BY BRENDA BARNES
Hendry/Glades Health Departments
The U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services today unveiled CuidadodeSalud.gov, the
first website in Spanish of its kind to help consum-
ers take control of their health care by connecting
them to new information and resources that will
help them access quality, affordable health care
coverage.
Consistent with the mandate in the Affordable
Care Act, CuidadodeSalud.gov is the partner site
of H. i 11., .. which was launched in July
2010, and is the first website in Spanish to provide


consumers with both public and private health
coverage options tailored specifically for their
needs in a single, easy-to-use tool.
"CuidadoDeSalud.gov like iH. ,iii' ii.. _. / is
an unprecedented website which provides con-
sumers with the power of information at their
fingertips. Individuals, families, and small busi-
nesses will be able to easily compare both public
and private health coverage options tailored spe-
cifically for their needs, said HHS Secretary Kath-
leen Sebelius. "CuidadoDeSalud.gov will give La-
tinos across the nation better information about
the choices they have, how much they cost, and
what they can expect from their doctor specific to
their life situation and local community."
In addition, the website is a one-stop-shop
for information about the implementation of the
Affordable Care Act as well as other health care
resources. The website connects consumers to


quality rankings for local health care providers as
well as preventive services.
CuidadodeSalud.gov is particularly important
for Latinos, who have the highest rates of un-
insurance in the nation-more than one in three
Latinos are uninsured.
Without healthcare coverage, Latinos have
less access to care. Latinos are only half as likely
to have a usual source of primary care, and half
of Latinos do not have a regular doctor. Twenty
percent of low income Latino youth have gone a
year without a health care visit a rate three times
higher than that for high-income Whites.
Latinos also suffer disproportionately from
chronic health diseases such as diabetes and car-
diovascular disease. Latinas have disproportion-


ate rates of cervical cancer, which they contract at
twice the rate of white women.
Since 1998, mammography levels have been
lower among Latinas compared with non-His-
panic white and black women.
In October 2010, CuidadoDeSalud.gov will in-
clude price estimates for health insurance plans.
In the weeks and months ahead, new in-
formation on .r.. -i._: disease and illness and
improving the quality of health care for all Ameri-
cans will also be posted.
The website also includes a series of mecha-
nisms through which users can indicate whether
pages were helpful to them, and we will continue
to seek user feedback to grow and strengthen the
site.

the event on Friday, Aug. 27. Palm Beach County
schools were invited to recommend up to three
students to participate. Brett was selected for this
event because of his enthusiasm for creating art
and his ability to work under pressure. The stu-
dents arrived at the gallery at 4:30 p.m.; they were
given directions and told they had an hour and a
half to produce their art. Brett's topic was "Sea-
sons and Deformation". Brett, not sure of what
it meant, thought of "Fall". He drew a picture of
leaves changing color and falling. For interest, he
added a person standing in the leaves. Brett's cre-
ation will be on display at the EG Square Gallery

1928 Second Worst Natural Disaster Remembered


BY CHARLES M. MURPHY
INI
The unnamed storm that was the second
worst natural disaster in American history
was remembered Thursday, Sept. 16, dur-
ing an hour long memorial service at Port
Mayaca Memorial Gardens.
Dr. Willy Jay Thompson of the East Stuart
Historical Society has arranged the service
for the past three years. This year the City
Commission in Pahokee issued a procla-
mation that thanked Dr. Thompson and his
group for their efforts.
"We do our very best to try and maintain
the cemetery and do this type of memorial,"
City Manager Derrick Moore said, "We try to
make sure that those that have passed on
are remembered."
This year marked the 82nd anniversary
of the deadly storm that killed at least 1,600
people in the Glades area and around Lake
Okeechobee. More were killed in West Palm
Beach. The National Hurricane Center chal-
lenged the official death toll and now main-
tain that at least 2,500 people perished in the
storm.
The main culprit was heavy rains that
blew down man made dikes around Lake
Okeechobee. As the ceremony was being
held, just a few short miles away, workers
continued major improvement projects on
the Herbert Hoover dike.
Survivor Ethel Williams was three years
old when she and her family lived in a small
shack in Santee Quarters at Sand Cut. She
said it was God's will that she survived.
"It was God's permissive will that I sur-
vive. I wasn't the only one and his will must
be done. He is going to see us through. Not
many are left but we have children to carry
on the name of the Lord," she noted.
Williams, who has lived in Indiantown
since 1970, remembers little about the
storm, but knows she went to live with her
aunt Daisy Flemings in Okeechobee after the
storm. She remembers her father worked in


Okeechobee and had to hitchhike and walk
back to the Glades the day after the storm to
help his family.
"It was terrible. I don't remember too
much. They let me see the house we were
living in and it was down to the ground.
Some people asked God why this happened,
but he knows best and he's not to be ques-
tioned," she added.
Williams said people must be prepared
to meet the Holy Ghost at all times. She said
she hopes nothing like this ever happens
again, "I wouldn'twish that to happen again.
We know it might come back. You just have
to be ready when it comes."
The ceremony included a narration of the
storm and its aftermath by Mary Lovely of
the East Stuart Historical Society. The theme
for this years observance was "Their eyes
were watching God." The theme was taken
from a novel written by Zora Neale Hurston.
The book was about the storm of 1928 and
included eye witness accounts of the ordeal
residents went through in the Glades.
Lovely explained that the observance
shows that the public gives respect to those
unknown departed souls that were placed in
a mass grave as a final resting place in Port
Mayaca. More than 1,600 are buried at the
cemetery.
"We wish these souls rest peacefully in
the bosom of Jesus," she added.
She read aloud passages of the book that
explained the victim's eyes were watching
God that Sunday afternoon. Furious winds,
torrential downpours and sheets of rain hov-
ered over Lake Okeechobee. Many migrant
workers and local residents on the northern
rim of the lake wept, prayed and fought to
save their lives in one of the deadliest disas-
ters in American history.
The storm packed winds of 160 miles per
hour and came ashore at the Jupiter Inlet. It
travelled swiftly across Palm Beach County
and Lake Okeechobee.
The lake flooded and the man made le-


vees broke and unleashed torrents of water
onto communities of impoverished citizens.
The storm wiped out hundreds of buildings,
crops and livestock.
The recovery of bodies lasted until No-
vember 1, 1928. Thousands of bodies were
found, some hung in trees, under homes
and barns, and in shrubbery, canals and
ditches. Bodies were found as far away as
the Everglades.
Other bodies were burned in make-shift
funeral ceremonies, and others were eaten
by alligators. Farmers throughout the Glades
have reported digging up the bones of storm
victims in fields around the Lake for many
years.


The poem, 'Somebody got drowned,' by
Fanny Moore was also spoken to the crowd.
One portion of the poem caught the fear
the victims must have felt that day, "Over in
Pahokee families rushed out the door, and
somebody's poor mother was never seen
no more. Out around Lake Okeechobee all
scattered on the ground, the last account of
the dead folks was 2100 found. South Bay,
Belle Glade, Pahokee, they tell me all went
down, and in the little town of Chosen, ev-
erybody got drowned."
Reverend Jerry Gore of the East Stuart
Pentacostal Church of God gave the blessing
as a wreath was laid on the marker of the
mass grave at Port Mayaca.

Investigators Release
Names Of Robbery Attempt
Gone Wrong

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Sun
Investigators continue poring over the details
of an attempted robbery which escalated into a
fatal shooting in Belle Glade last week.
According to Teri Barbera, spokesperson for
the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, as many
as three men may have been involved in the in-
cident. Deputies responded to the area of South-
west 12th Street and Martin Luther King Blvd. at


approximately 9:30 p.m. on Sept. 15 to find two
men suffering from gunshot wounds.
One, Emerson Pierre-Louis, 26, had suffered
multiple gunshot wounds. The other, Adrian
Brown, 29, was lying dead on the street.
Before being transported via helicopter to a
hospital, Pierre-Louis told deputies he had been
approached by two males who attempted to rob
him when they got into an altercation.
Pierre-Louis said he and one of the suspects
exchanged gunfire after the man grabbed him
during the robbery attempt. He said the man ly-
ing on the street was the man he shot.
The case has been turned over to the gang
task force, who interviewed witnesses after the
shooting. The case remains open.

In this case, fire fighters knew exactly
what to do when the child was given over
to them.
"She went to the Pahokee station with
the infant and elected to give the child up,"
explained Mr. Delucia. "They took the child,

volunteering as a coach for Pahokee Blue Devils,
Darren Hill gets up and goes to work at 311 Cy
press Avenue. That's the location of his family's
new home.
But he's not alone on the job. Many times his
wife and their four girls come and help. There's
also a host of Habitat for Humanity volunteers
who show up every Saturday to help and give di-
rection on how the home should be built.
That's good, because Mr. Hill says he's never
built a home before. Sometimes, there are as
many as 50 people working at the site, including
contractors and others who are certified to do the
work.
The work is moving forward quickly. The con-
crete flooring has been poured. The walls are up
and the trusses went up last week.
"The contractor says we should be able to
move in by Christmas or by January," says Mrs.
Hill, who adds that it would be a great Christmas
present if they could move in by December 25th.
Land for the Hill's home was donated to Habi
tat for Humanity by the City of Pahokee, which,
according to Mayor JP Sasser, is a win win situa-
tion for everyone.
The city is in need of building its tax base by
adding new homes on the tax rolls and it's also a


checked it out and transported it to the hos-
pital. The system worked exactly like we
want it to work."
Young mother dropped off her newborn
child at a fire station in Pahokee on Monday;
in doing so, she gave up her chance for a
future with the child.
The hope is that she gave the child his
own chance at a future -- even if that means
without her.

way of assisting residents.
Habitat for Humanity is a "first class organi-
zation," says Mayor Sasser. "We're very proud to
have them in our city and we are looking forward
to assisting them in building more homes here in
the future."
Habitat of Humanity of Palm Beach began in
1986. A 501c3, non-profit organization, their mis-
sion, according to Ms. Archer, is to provide sim-
ple, affordable, decent homes for low income,
hard working families. They serve families from
Hypoluxo Road north to the Martin County line
and west to the lake region.
"We have built 105 houses to date and have
an additional four under construction," she says.
"Upon completion of their home, the family as-
sumes a 30-year, no interest mortgage from us,
strictly covering the hard costs."
Mortgage costs are usually less than the family
previously paid in rent, and the mortgage includes
the principal, property taxes and insurance.
"Once we complete this house and the other
one we are now building in Pahokee we will be
seeking land in Belle Glade so we can start build-
ing there," says Ms. Archer, who goes on to say,
"Habitat offers families the opportunity to achieve
the American dream of homeownership."
Darren and Silvia Hill might say "amen" to
that, because they certainly can say their dream
is coming true, but mostly, they will tell you their
prayers have been heard ... and answered.


Sweat equity
Homeowner Darren Hill's sweat-covered shirt show he is willing to provide the "sweat
equity" necessary to be a homeowner of a Habitat for Humanity house. He hopes his
family can be in their new four bedroom, 1 bath home by the first of the year.
