Belle Glade Community Activist Named Citizen of the Year


BY BRENDA BUNTING
Special to The Sun
An emotional Karen Corbin said she was
"overwhelmed" when named Citizen of the Year
at the Belle Glade Chamber of Commerce Ban
quet. The event, held Thursday, Oct. 28 at the Dol
ly Hand Cultural Arts Center, honors those who
have made outstanding contributions to the Belle
Glade community.
"I'm almost speechless," she told an audience
of more than 180 people who had come out to
the 46 annual event. "To think that my name will
be added to this list of those who have received
this great honor in the past just overwhelms me,"
she said.


Presenter Sonja Lutz, a 2003 recipient of this
award, lauded Corbin for touching the lives of
many for over i 1 i
Corbin's family moved to the Glades when she
was a 10-month old babe and she has remained
in the area since. Graduating from Belle Glade
High School in 1960, she left the Glades briefly
to attend and graduate from the Cincinnati Con
servatory of Music. She returned to her roots after
college, came home and married her high school
sweetheart, the late Gordon Corbin.
Karen has been the organist for the Commu
nity United Methodist Church for many years and
provides the music for local weddings, funerals
and musical programs. She plays for the annual
Living Christmas Tree performance at the Dolly


Hand and has done so for 18 years, the Missoula
Children's Theater for 15 years and has accompa
nied band students at competitions.
"But, that's not all she does," said Mrs. Lutz.
"She has also taken on significant leadership roles
to make the Glades a better place to live."
Corbin is the immediate past president of the
Belle Glade Chamber of Commerce. She was
also awarded a plaque for serving six years on
the board of directors. She served on the board
of the Glades Area Association of Retarded Citi
zens, serves as secretary for the Black Gold Ju
bilee Board as well as chair of the Photography
Contest; and is a charter member of Xi Zeta Mu
sorority.
She has two children, Micah and Courtney


and five grandchildren.
Mrs. Lutz ended her speech by saying this:
"Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our
hearts. And, if you have known Karen Corbin, our
2010 Belle Glade Chamber Citizen of the Year, you
will find these footprints on your heart."
Agri-Industrial Man of the Year
Dennis Wedgworth, President of Wedgworth
Farms, was named Ag-Industrial Man of the Year
during the banquet. Presenter Tom Altman noted
that Mr. Wedgworth's career in agriculture has
spanned 34 years. He has served as chair and

RELIGIOUS COLUMNS


Under-living Our Due
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
Many years ago,
Peter Deyneka was im-
migrating to America
on a long Atlantic voy
age with only a few
coins in his pocket.
When he got hungry,
he reached into a little
bag he'd brought with
him. He rationed the
contents of his meal
bag, eating the same
thing every meal
a few dry crusts of
bread washed down Pastor John
with water. When his Hicks
ship finally docked in
New York, Peter was
pretty hungry, not to mention pretty sick of bread
crusts. That's when he realized something that
he'd wished he had understood at the beginning
of the voyage: three full meals a day had been in
clouded in his fare.
Peter had been living at a much lower level
than he needed to live! He had no idea all the
good things he could have had and even was en
titled to with his ticket.
When God looks at us sailing through life, He
sees many of us living the same way under liv
ing, not realizing how we could be living and all
of the abundant wealth of good things we have
when we open our lives to Christ.
Imagine all the resources of God we can
download: His wisdom for our questions; His
power for our difficulties; His love for our lonely
times; and His peace for our troubled times. We
don't have to survive on a dried bread crust life
when we have all the resources of God at our
disposal!
One of the main ways these resources are
accessed is through prayer. Many times we un
der live because we under pray. Many times we
over worry and overwork and get overwhelmed
because we under pray.
To better access God's provision and power
for our situation and need, it helps to first focus
on our big, big God, not our big, big problem.
Then, we need to trust God for His provision.
Instead of just giving God our request list, let us
enter into His presence. It helps to put our praise
before our please and our worship before our re

quest. When we take a little time to celebrate the
awesomeness of our God, we start to access all
the great resources that come with our ticket. We
don't have to live the way we have been living. Let
us not wait until we reach our heavenly destina
tion to realize how we could have been living all
along!
My prayer is the prayer of Paul in Philemon
1:6: "I .' i, oi. ,'. ... /be active in sharing your
faith, so that you will have a full understanding of
every good thing we have in Christ."


The Hard Times:
Circumstances Or Values?
BY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
With November, we

stretch" of 2010

New Year's. Two months
remain; time has moved
quickly. Mid-term elec
tions are behind us -for
better or for worse -and
Halloween has passed.
With each ending of a
period comes a time for
reflection. Was it a "good
year" or was it a "bad
year?" It may depend on Rev. Sam S.
such things as whether Thomas, Ph.D.+
or not you're working;
whether or not you've
had to put off a real vacation; whether or not
you've been able to trade in your old model and
afford a new car. Not too long ago, a T.V special
showed some pictures of the World War II era.
One particular picture was of a young couple just
married. He was dressed in his military uniform;
she was dressed in a white "street" dress.
The narrator explained he would most likely
be returning to duty, with no honeymoon, plen
ty of worries about whether he would ever be
coming home, or in what shape he might be in
when he returned. She would most likely go back
to living with family; there would be no money
to establish their own home yet. Life would be
waiting, waiting, waiting instead of getting things
underway.
Both would be caught up in what tomorrow
might bring; for better or for worse. There would

be letters back and forth; probably trying to put
on paper their feelings and emotions; love and
loneliness, the pain of separation and the joy of
knowing someone is out there. At the end of it
all, "they had their problems too; they had their
heartaches and difficulties." Then I thought about
what carried them through -faith. There were al
ways possibilities that things might not work out
as planned; but that did not deter the generation
that laid the foundations for our own.
Other doors might open to new experiences
and new faces of life not yet dreamed about.
Thanksgiving was celebrated then, too; and so
was Christmas and each New Year brought a
new hope that things would be better. The faith
of other times did not betray the people who
lived through them. The final difference was not
circumstances but the values of the generations.
As Saint Paul so aptly put it "Faith-hope-love." I
have observed that each generation has its chal
lenges and problems and it is our abiding values
that carry us through the hard times.
We forget that the difficulties of life were also
present in the first century, the Middle Ages, the
Reformation, the Industrial Age, the last century,
and are nothing new in our generation. Jesus
chose to celebrate His Thanksgiving in the midst
of the hard times of His worldly life -breaking
bread with friends, promising He would be with
them, that He could be re-called and that His
will for us all would one day prevail (Matthew
26:17ff).
He gave His followers faith, hope, love; values
that carried them through -they still can and will
do so for us, too.

SFWMD, FWC Let Woodpeckers Fly to Benefit Diversity of Wildlife


The birds are known as a I fjj


"keystone" species because
their nests attract other
wildlife

BY GABE MARGASAK
SFWMD
In an effort to boost diversity among South
Florida's wildlife, biologists last week released 10
red-cockaded woodpeckers at the DuPuis Man
agement Area as part of a long-standing partner
ship between the South Florida Water Manage
ment District (SFWMD) and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to
build the population of these important birds.
"A healthy and diverse wildlife population is
integral to the function of South Florida's eco
systems," said SFWMD Governing Board mem
ber Kevin Powers. "Abundant birds and other


animals are also a good indication of restoration
progress that benefits both the environment and
residents."
Designated as a Species of Special Concern,
red-cockaded woodpeckers and the nests they
construct play a vital role in the web of life in
southern pine forests. They are considered a
I. -.... species by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife


Service (USFWS) because the cavities they peck
into pine trees are used by a host of other ani
mals, contributing to the richness of species in
the pine forest. According to the USFWS, at least
27 species such as insects, birds, snakes, lizards,
squirrels and frogs have been documented using
woodpecker cavities.
Biologists secured the birds from the Apala
chicola National Forest in the Florida Panhandle,
which features a large population of red-cockad
ed woodpeckers. The woodpeckers were gently
transported to South Florida by truck in special
boxes and fed mealworms every hour.
Prior to their arrival, District staff prepared
new woodpecker homes in the DuPuis Manage
ment Area, a 22,000-acre natural area located on
the border of Palm Beach and Martin counties
and open to public recreation throughout the
year. DuPuis was part of the historic Everglades
and features an ecologically diverse and signifi
cant' .,. I .I community, along with abundant
wildlife.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


DuPuis once supported a red-cockaded wood
pecker population, but the birds disappeared
many years ago because of changes to their habi
tat. District staff has worked diligently to improve
the woodpecker habitat to the point where the
area can now support a sustainable population.
This work has included prescribed burning, veg
etation control and the installation of artificial cav
ity inserts in slash pine.
Each fall since 2006, the SFWMD and the FWC
have released 10 birds, five males and five fe
males, in wild areas such as DuPuis and the near
by J.W Corbett Wildlife Management Area. Pres
ently, there are 16 birds in the DuPuis population,
including two that :I. I-. I this year. Since 2006,
six birds have :I. I.-_. I from nests in DuPuis.
A bird that was introduced into DuPuis in 2007
was found as part of a breeding pair at Corbett
this year, bringing the population in that wildlife
management area to about 50. Biologists have
also documented approximately 80 breeding
pairs in the Big Cypress National Preserve.

Students To Receive 14,000 Books For 'Read Together'


With the financial support of the Wachovia
Wells Fargo Foundation, the Historical Society of
Palm Beach County will distribute 14,000 cop
ies of The Adventures of Charlie Pierce: The Last
Egret to the Palm Beach County School District
for use in fourth-grade classrooms, as part of a
countywide "Read Together" program for chil
dren and families.
The book chronicles the childhood adventures
of Charlie Pierce, who ultimately became one of
the barefoot mailmen. It also describes the envi
ronmental disaster that occurred in South Florida
when plume hunting led many greedy individuals
to slaughter birds for their exotic feathers which
were sold to decorate ladies' hats.
The countywide "Read T 1.. i. '' program
for children and families, which begins Novem
ber 1, is a collaboration between the Wachovia
Wells Fargo Foundation, The Education Network
(T.E.N.), the Historical Society of Palm Beach
County, the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation and
author Harvey Oyer III.
The Department of Elementary Curriculum


has written more than 20 lessons to support
teachers in providing instruction as their students
read The Last Egret. The lessons are specifically
tied to benchmarks in literacy, social studies, sci
ence, math and art contained in the Next Genera
tion Sunshine State Standards. All 109 public el
ementary schools as well as the county's charter
and alternative elementary schools will receive
copies of the book.
"The reading of this book will enhance the
students' understanding of South Florida in the
late 1800s," said Liz Perlman, Elementary Cur
riculum Development & School Improvement
director. "In addition to the curricular benefits of
literacy and historical instruction that come from
reading The Last Egret, students will gain an un
derstanding of conservation and the protection of
our wildlife and natural resources," she added.
"The Wachovia Wells Fargo Foundation is
proud to assist the Palm Beach County School
District and the Historical Society of Palm Beach
County with the funds it needed to make this book
available to the county's fourth graders," said


Frank Newman, regional president for Wacho
via's Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast region.
"It's important for children to explore the natural
wonders and history of Florida. We're glad to sup
port this .. ........ '. i. ." he added.
I, ._. II i. we're helping children learn about
Florida's unique cultural heritage and history,"
said John McDonagh, President and CEO of the
Historical Society of Palm Beach County.
Lessons for Palm Beach County teachers will
be contained in Learning Village on the Social
Studies and Reading pages. Compact Disks of
the lessons are being provided to private schools
and charter schools participating in the project.
Many activities to support the read-together pro
gram will take place at the schools, including field

HRMC Foundation Receives Grant


A Great Season for Bass

and Locations for Crappies

Kept Secret

BY MARK KING

What a great week last week was fishing on
Lake Okeechobee, and this week should be even
better. The lake level is at 13.47 above sea level
and dropping pretty fast for this time of the year,
but we are supposed to get some rain this week
that might help. The bass have really started to
move in off the main lake and are staging outside
the traditional spawning areas like the East and
West Walls, Long Point, Monkey Box, and the
North Shore, just to name a few places. Some
really nice bass were caught by the guides and
clients this week out of Roland Martin's Marina.
The bite on artificial lures as well as on the
wild shiners continues to be good for bass -and
did I mention that for those who like to fly fish,
we have plenty of bass to catch here on Lake
Okeechobee? Throw out a wild shiner under a
cork along the outside grass line and get ready to
get your arm broke. For shiner fishing for bass, I
like to use a heavy action rod, at least seven-foot
long and line no lighter than 20-pound test as you
will be fishing close to thick grass and reeds. For
artificial lure fishing, a Gambler Ace rigged Texas
style in junebug color pitched along the outside
grass line has been producing some nice bass.
And for those of you who like to flip, try a Gam-
bler Craw in any of the mats of grass from the
North Shore to Pelican Bay and I think you will be
pleasantly surprised as to what is under them.
I have also caught a few bass throwing a Spro
Aruka Shad lipless crankbait and a spinnerbait
on the shoal when the wind blows bait into the
grass, fishing the open water about a cast away
from the grass. If the wind blows too hard to fish
out on the main lake grass line than there are still
a good number of bass to be caught in the rim
canal and dynamite holes. I like to fish these ar
eas with a shakey head rig that consists of a jig
head like the Gambler Giggy Head that I use with
a straight-tailed worm attached.
I like to use a sensitive rod like the one I helped
Deep South Fishing Rods develop that is available
in both spinning and -. ih. iI.I: versions. These
rods will help you fish a shakey head jig and feel
more bite but still has plenty of backbone to get
the big Okeechobee bass in the boat. Fish the
deeper dynamite holes and the opening from the
rim canal to the lake. This works well when the
wind is blowing and there is a ripple on the water.
The fly fishing also has been good this week with
good numbers being caught. The fly of the week
has been ia *.-,,.1'i I I i up out of foam.
The lake is in great shape with eel grass and
pepper grass growing everywhere along with
clean water in most areas. I think that this year
will be one awesome season for bass here on
Okeechobee. I know that there are a few crappies
being caught but everyone has been pretty tight
lipped about where they are at. Until next week
good luck and tight lines.

On Tuesday, Oct. 26, Julia East, Pres
ident and CEO of the Southwest Florida
Community Foundation, presented the
Hendry Regional Medical Center Foun
dation with a $10,000 grant check. Julia
East, who attended the hospital emer
agency department's ground-breaking
ceremony in Clewiston on Sept. 7,
expressed an interest in assisting the
hospital foundation with its fundraising Pictur
efforts. Within a matter of weeks, the Victor
Southwest Florida Community Founda Lynn
tion had chosen a "Naming Opportu
nity" as their method of Giving the Gift
of Good Health.
Along with her board of trustees, Julia desig
nated $10,000 towards the reception/waiting area
of the Hendry Family Care Center, to be named
after the Southwest Florida Community Founda
tion. The Hendry Family Care Center (adjacent to
the hospital) is dedicated to serving the health
care needs of the entire family: infants, children
and adults. An area of this medical center will be
renovated in the near future to accommodate a
well-child waiting area, separating the sick chil
dren from the well ones.

ever," he said.
Wednesday morning results showed Marcia Andrews
and Dean Grossman neck and neck in the race for school
board district 6, which represents, among other areas, all
schools in the Glades.
Grossman led the race with 24,029 votes, for 50.11
percent of the vote, to Andrews' 23,919 votes, represent
ing 49.89 percent.
Statewide, voters showed up to vote Marco Rubio in
as senator. Rubio, the Republican candidate, fought a
long and hard campaign against former Governor Char
lie Crist, running as an independent, and Democrat Ken
drick Meek. Rubio collected more than half of all votes
throughout the state for the seat.


And Florida has a new governor. Rick Scott, a Repub
lican and former CEO of Columbia HCA, participated in
one of the closer races of the night, with numbers being
tallied late into Tuesday night and into Wednesday morn
ing, little telling of when the actual numbers would be
finalized.
His opponent, former president of Florida operations
at Bank of America Alex Sink, tried to rally her demo
cratic contingency even as Scott seemed to enjoy a slight
lead and conceded the race on Wednesday.
Amendments:
Millions of Florida residents also cast their votes on the
various amendments featured on the 2010 General Elec
tion ballot. Voters had a lot of information to sort through
with this year's ballot. Among the amendments:
Amendment 4 -Land Use, an amendment which
grabbed many headlines in the weeks leading up to the
election, was voted down by the majority of voters.
Had it been approved, the amendment would have


required voter approval on comprehensive land-use plan
changes in every city and county in Florida.
Proponents argued the amendment was necessary to
provide for smart, controlled growth, while opponents
said the measure would cost jobs and severely limit the
state's development opportunities and its economy.
Amendments 5 and 6 -Legislative and Congressio
nal Redistricting, were approved by a large majority of
Florida voters.
Through their votes, Floridians said they would like
to set non-political standards for redistricting and reduce
the gerrymandering of districts for political purposes.
Amendment 8 -Public School Class Sizes, was also
rejected by voters.
The approval would have provided more flexibility to
schools and a greater level of control of teacher-student
ratios.
Supporters of the amendment said the current size
limits cost the state too much.
