Eco-Tourism


Push Unveiled

Gateway to the Everglades
brand presented to cities

BY BRENDA BUNTING
Special to The Sun
.I.||...._.,: for years to enhance eco-tourism
and market the region, communities on the
southern shores of Lake Okeechobee now have
a new marketing/branding incentive to help in
these efforts.
Approximately 100 residents and community
leaders gathered at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts
Center last week for the unveiling of a new video
and brochures highlighting the southern lake's
attractions in Glades, Hendry and Palm Beach
County. They also viewed the new branding logo
titled, "The Southern Shores of Lake Okeechobee
Gateway to the Everglades."
According to Robin Lankton, director of mar-
keting for the Collins Center, this video will be
used in the marketing efforts throughout the Unit-
ed States and Canada. "Two 30-second television

Tax Collector to Offer Driver License Services


Grand opening event
Dec. 14

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Sun
The Palm Beach County Tax Collector's Office
will be holding an event on Dec. 14 to encourage
residents to come out and familiarize themselves
with the new driver license services offered at the
facility.
Why is the tax collector's office handling driv


er license services?
The Florida legislature mandated that the
tax collector become the issuing agent for driv-
er licenses, and gave that agency a three-year
window to meet the new requirement. In Palm
Beach County, however, the agency is looking to
make the switch sooner than later, and has al-
ready converted its South County office to a full
service facility.
Now, the tax collector's office has its eyes set
on the grand opening of its Belle Glade office.
As a full service facility, the Belle Glade office
will offer new issues of driver licenses, renewals,


address changes, duplicates, out of state trans-
fers, suspension clearances and reinstatements.
One of the major new initiatives of the county
tax collector office is in getting residents Real ID
compliant. The general goal of the Real ID pro-
gram is to, according to information being distrib-
uted by the tax collector's office, "improve the in-
tegrity and security of state-issued driver licenses
and identification cards, in order to help fight ter-
rorism and reduce fraud." It was established in
response to the 9/11 Commission's recommen-
dation that the U.S. improve its system for issuing
identification documents.


In order to do that, after 2014, federal agencies
will no longer accept a regular driver license un-
less it is Real ID compliant confirmation of being
compliant is a gold star in the upper right corner
of the license card. This means that residents who
are not compliant will not be allowed to board
commercial flights or enter federal facilities.
Among the documents that a person needs to
be Real ID compliant: Birth certificate, passport,
certificate of naturalization or consular proof of

The Incomparable Christ
BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
As Christmas draws near, it is important that we
remember that Jesus Christ came from the bosom
of the Father to the bosom of a woman. He put
on humanity that we might put on divinity. He be-
came the Son of Man that we might become Sons
of God. He was born in a supernatural way, lived
in poverty, reared in i ..... i;1 Only once crossed
the boundary of the land, in childhood. He had no
wealth nor influence and no (. i. i,,. ,i ..... yet
the profound wisdom of men has never equalled
His last discourse in John 13 to 17 and the Sermon
on the Mount. Never has man spoken like this
man. His relatives were inconspicuous and not in-
fluential. In infancy He startled a king; in boyhood
He puzzled the doctors, even at 12 years of age He
was far in advance of the theologians, for He was
taught of God. He healed the multitudes without
medicine and did not charge for His services.
He never wrote a book, yet libraries could not
hold the books that have been written about Him.
He never wrote a song, yet He has furnished the
theme of more songs than all song writers com-
bined. He never founded a college, yet all the
schools I, ,. il. cannot boast of as many students
as He has. He never marshalled an army, drafted a
soldier nor fired a gun, yet no leader made more
volunteers, who have under His orders made reb-
els stack arms or surrender without a shot being
fired. He conquered death, rose after three days as
He said He would, ascended into Heaven, is now
at the right hand of the throne of God, and will
one day come in the clouds of Heaven with power
and great glory for His own born-again, blood-
bought ones to be forever with Him according to
promises, after which He will judge the world in
righteousness, when every knee shall bow to Him
and every tongue shall confess Him as Lord His
friends gladly, but His enemies reluctantly, seeking
for a place to hide from His face (Rev. 6:15).
The ever Perfect One He is the Chief among
ten thousand, the only One who can satisfy the
soul and give ,1 ,. i I. Life to those who have
it not. He is Altogether Lovely, and He is my very
own Savior.

Death Can Take A Holiday
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
Each of us is put here on earth to learn, share,
love, appreciate, and give of ourselves. None of us
knows when this incredible journey will end, but it
can come to an end at any moment. Perhaps this
is God's way of telling us that we need to make
the most out of every single day. It's important for
us not to take for granted those things and people
precious to us. It's important for us make a special

effort to cherish them and love on them as much
as we can when we can, for life is precious and
there are no guarantees of tomorrow.
Over a short period of time, our community has
experienced a number of losses. Young men, taken
before their time, who were with us one day and
gone the next. It's always hard for parents to bury
a child. The death of a child seems to violate the
natural order of things. But so does the loss of a
husband and father and grandfather, a mother and
grandmother, especially when the parting is unex-
pected. Death can take a holiday. One of the most
difficult aspects to deal with is the reality that the
person will never again be part of family life. Holi-
days exasperate this. But we can't let death win.
Grieving is like a wound that needs time to
heal, and everyone heals at different rates, but fac-
ing the grief can be the best medicine toward heal-
ing. Each contribution helps in finding a new sense
of purpose while keeping the loved one's memory
alive. Letting people be there in whatever way they
are is also an important part of this healing pro-
cess. A friend called me during a time I was going
through a period of grief, sharing, "John, we don't
know what to do for you. If you want to be alone,
we will give you space. If you want company, we
will be there. Regardless, we want you to know we
love you." Knowing I had friends who cared for me
and were there for me helped me get through the
holidays and realize healing, even if I didn't always
avail myself with their offer.
This year, some friends and family will be hold-
ing Christmas without a loved one. Their faith and
their memories and the love shared by friends and
neighbors are the gifts that will help them through
the holidays. Let us be the Christ-light for them in
their darkness. Let us weep with them and laugh
with them and be there for them. We are here to
help each other on our journeys to help walk the
mile and help bear the load.

Christmas; It's All About
Getting Ready First
BY REV SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
When it comes to the end, sometimes we will
never know. Usually, we can talk about begin
nings and celebrate them; baptism into a new
life in faith, birthdays beginning of a new life in
this world, the first day on the job, the first day of
school, the founding of a country, the birth of a
great hero. These are the days that bring memories
and traditions that bind us I .... 11i. The Christmas
story is also the story of a beginning. It is about
people who knew the day was coming and so they
prepared for it. People held onto the hope that
there would be a better world and that they might
live without fear. The earliest stories (e.g. Noah -)
are about knowing in faith that there would be dif
ficulties to transgress but God would be with the

faithful, and to get ready for the blessings and gift
of life to come. We prepare for new additions to
our homes, for a career, for marriage, people pre-
pare for new societies. That time is well spent; get-
ting ready is really a part of the day to come. The
Church marks the season before Christmas, known
as "Advent" in many traditions (a word that means
"before .........- i in getting ready for the Nativity
celebrations that herald in new life. There is a cer
tain oneness about preparing and .. 1. i .1, iiii-, one
completes the other and makes the special time
more special than it would be otherwise. The end
of time? It is not ours to know (Matthew 24:36ff) -
even the Lord Himself didn't know (or worry about
it!). The end may be only a part of our preparation
for it. I see that .1 ..ii,,i i in the advent season
as well as all of our days here on this earth. It is
all about getting ready, and then .. 1. ii .1 .._. what
has been promised. I like to prepare for Christmas
because it makes the day more special; choosing
the right gifts for special people, working on what
is to be shared in Church to bring a special wor
ship experience to others who share it with me,
reminiscing and preparing the "annual newsletter"
shared with family and friends and mailing them in
time for the season's celebrations in their parts of
the world, looking forward to knowing with them
that this time is special in their lives too. Christ-
mas isn't about one day only; it's about the days
before. Now, we are about two weeks away from
that special day; and the time is now to "invest"
in it by our planning for the coming of the Lord in
our own ways. In spite of the dark times that pre-
ceded Jesus' coming; people nevertheless knew
that their faith and preparation for a new day was
not wasted. Same thing today; faith is never finally
betrayed, hope is never ultimately disappointed in
spite of all that seems dark. May we live these days
of preparation in hope; and prepare to celebrate
His coming once more.

Lake Okeechobee Weekly Fishing Report


Cold Weather in Full Force
and Fish Are Still Biting

BY MARK KING
The cool northern weather has finally made
it to South Florida; not sure if it followed the
snowbirds or what but it is here. One good thing
though is that it hasn't effected the bass fishing
here on Okeechobee.
I was gone most of last week to pro staff
meetings at Ranger Boats in Flippin Arkansas and
when I got back and went out on the lake on a
guide trip my clients caught some really nice bass
including an eight-pound hog.
Lake Okeechobee is one awesome lake and
there are bass to be caught somewhere on the
lake at all times.
The lake level is at 12.79 feet above sea level
and seems to be going down a little almost ev
ery day. We are at a great lake level now but we


don't need to let any more out of the lake for this
time of the year. I just don't understand why it is
so hard for South Florida Water Management to
manage the water here in Lake Okeechobee; it
seems like every year it is a problem either too
much water or not enough.
The bigger bass seem to be still staged on the
outside grass line in most areas and if the water
isn't to dirty from the wind blowing than this is
where I would fish. If the water seems to dirty
than move back in the grass till the water starts
to clear up some.
Some of the good areas this week have been
Coots Bay, East Wall, the Shoal up around Ob-
servation Island area, Long Point, and the Horse
Island area. If the wind is blowing too hard than
the dynamite holes and the rim canal have plenty
of bass and some really nice ones are still being
caught.
Wild shiners have been working great on the
outside grass lines and the bigger the shiner the


better, the small shiners and domesticated shiners
are not working very well. This is one case where
bigger is definitely better. For artificial lures I have
been using Gambler Big EZ swimbaits and Reac-
tion Innovation Skinny Dippers. Just buzz these
baits over the grass and be ready for a violent
strike, also be rigged up with heavy braided line
and extra strong hooks like the ones I use from
TroKar.
The only other lure that I have been using is
a Gambler Ace rigged weightless or with a 1/16
screw in weight when the wind blows, junebug
seems to be the best color.
I was I." ii. -..- I to spend a few days last week
at the Ranger Boats factory in Flippin Arkansas
where I spent some time in pro staff meetings and
also got to see a couple new model boats for this
year. There is a new 18-foot boat the Z518 that is
a tournament rigged bass boat that is affordable
for everyone and a new 22 foot bay boat the 220
Bahia that is rated for a 150 horse motor that will


fit anyone's budget. Stop by Roland Martin's Ma-
rine Center in Clewiston for more information on
these boats or the whole Ranger boat line. There
is no finer built boat on the market for both fresh-
water and saltwater.
The crappie fishing has still been pretty good
with the rim canal, Harney Pond Canal, Point of
the Reef, and Kissimmee River all good places to
try. There are a couple of great tournaments this
weekend out of Clewiston, on Saturday the Toys
for Kids tournament and on Sunday the no entry
fee Gambler Baits tournament.
Stop by Roland Martin's Marine Center for
more information on these tournaments. Until
next week good luck, tight lines and hope to see
everyone out on the lake.

Santamaria and P.B.S.O. Help Local Families


100 families taken on a
small shopping spree

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Sun
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office
transported 100 people to the Royal Palm Beach
Walmart on Tuesday to purchase $100 worth of
goods for the holidays.
The gesture was possible thanks to a gener-
ous donation by Palm Beach County Commis-
sioner Jess Santamaria and the Brother's/Sister's
Keeper Charitable Trust he helped to start a num-
ber of years ago.
"In these tough economic times, everything
that is given helps out," said Farokh Jiveh, one of
the trust's board members.
Deputies sometimes helped the families to
pick out goods, but for the most part families had
a list made out of all the things they needed back
home.
Representatives of the Glades-area sheriff's
office locations were happy to help.
"I love it. I know how great the need is," said
Captain Nancy Grimes, who said that people
from South Bay to Belle Glade and Pahokee were
being offered the help.
Mr. Santamaria, a very hands-on commis-
sioner, was at the Walmart himself while the

Palm Beach County Lt. Michael Morris was on-hand to help in the shopping spree at the
Royal Palm Beach Walmart.


Glades area residents took to the store, buying
food, clothing and other items with their shop-
ping cards.
"I've been doing this all my life," said the
commissioner. "I believe that to whom much is
given, much is expected. The more I have, the
more I give."
According to him, the charitable trust has
been active for the last 10 years, having been in-
volved in the Glades event for the last five or so
years. Each year anywhere from 50 to 100 fami-
lies are given gift cards between $100 and $200 to
shop for the basic necessities.


Another one of the group's efforts this year
will be in taking 300 families to the Wellington
Mall to pick out a toy for their child.
Juan Lopez, who shopped with his mother,
was grateful that his old mentor, Deputy Lee
Sutterfield, was on-hand to help. Juan knew her
from the sheriff's explorer program, and was
happy that the sheriff's office continues to coor-
dinate charitable efforts along with people like
Commissioner Santamaria.
"I appreciate it with all of my heart," said
Juan's mother. "I believe they are humble peo-
ple."

Glades Day Blows By Victory Christian in Class 1B State Semifinals


Glades Central makes it two
consecutive Class 2A state
semifinal wins over
Robinson (Tampa)

BY NAJI TOBIAS
Special to INI
F.,i ._ iI. 1.... It took just two big plays early
in the first quarter, but Glades Day senior Eaton
Spence set the tone for what turned out to be a
45-27 blowout win over Victory Christian (Lake
land) in the Class IB state semifinal match-up on
Dec. 3.
Following the coin toss Glades Day was
awarded the ball first Spence ran a 90-yard kick
off return almost untouched en route to the end
zone for a 7-0 lead, sending the packed crowd at
Gator Field into a frenzy.
The Gators defense then forced a three-and-
out series by the Storm on their first possession,
forcing them to punt.
And then Glades Day's special teams lowered
the boom on Victory Christian's punter.
As Spence blocked the Storm punt, Glades
Day junior Steven Williams somehow got the ball
and recovered it in the end zone for a 14-0 lead.
Glades Day scored two touchdowns in just
1:42.
"Our special teams came out big tonight,"
Glades Day Gators head coach Pete Walker said.
So did the offense and defense.
On Glades Day's first offensive possession, it
took just one play for the game to be out of reach
for the Storm as Kelvin Taylor (15 rushes, 236
yards, two touchdowns) zigzagged his way 74
yards to the end zone for a 21 -0 lead.
If not for a holding penalty later in the first
quarter, Glades Day would have had a 28-0 lead,
thanks to Luis Ruiz's 99-yard interception return
for a touchdown that got nullified.
With Victory Christian (12-1 overall) making
its first successful drive of the game, they were
able to capitalize on that penalty, as Storm senior
Brandon Clark punched his way into the end zone


Eaton Spence leads the scoring barrage for the Glades Day Gators, as he scores a touchdown
on a 90-yard kickoff return to give the Gators a 7-0 lead early in the first quarter.


to cut the lead to 21-7.
But that's not all.
Tanner Redish, in his first game back since in-
juring his collarbone during the regular season,
threw his first pass to senior wideout Michael
Terrell, a 66 yard touchdown strike which game
Glades Day a 28-7 lead in just their second offen-
sive series.
Combined with an interception grab by Wil-
liams -he picked off Storm quarterback Demeitre
Brim on the Storm's second offensive play of the
game Glades Day showed its fans they came to
play for real.
And all of that happened in the first quarter.
"It was a well-rounded effort," Walker said of
his team's first quarter.
Despite Glades Day's lead being cut to 28-14
later in the first half, Gators kicker Joseph Lang-
meyer extended their lead to 31-14 going into


halftime, thanks to a 35-yard field goal.
And then Glades Day lowered the boom again
- this time in the early going of the second half.
Just one play after the Gators special team
recovered a pooch kickoff by Langmeyer the
Storm's special teams lost the ball after touching
it Redish (4-for 6 passing, 126 yards, two touch-
downs, one interception) connected with Terrell
again, this time for a 40 yard touchdown pass.
Taylor's 3 yard touchdown run with 6:55 left
in the third sealed the deal for Glades Day, as their
45-14 lead was more than enough to overcome a
late Storm surge and put them back in the Class
IB state championship game.
"I didn't have to touch the ball that many
times," Taylor said. "Our team just played real
hard out there. Everything paid off for us, so we're
going back to Orlando."
Glades Day (9-4 overall) will get a chance to


win two consecutive state championships for the
first time in its history on Friday, Dec. 10. They'll
be at the Citrus Bowl for a state finals rematch
against Warner Christian.
Notes: Should Glades Day win their next and
final game of the season, it will be their seventh
overall state championship. It would put them in
sole possession of second most in FHSAA history,
behind Bolles (Jacksonville), a team that has won
10 state championships.
Glades Central 35, Robinson (Tampa) 10: The
Raiders moved on to their second consecutive
Class 2A state championship game, powered by
their running game and swarming defense.
Down 7-0 early in the game, Jamarious Row
ley engineered a touchdown drive that ended in
the hands of junior wideout Jaime Wilson for a
10-yard passing score, tying it up at 7-7.
The second quarter would be the defining
moment for Glades Central, as they muscled their
way into the end zone twice to take a 21-7 lead
into halftime, thanks to a 10-yard touchdown
from Rowley and a 38-yarder from sophomore
running back Aaron Baker.
Baker (21 rushes, 142 yards, two touchdowns)
scored again in the third quarter on a 1-yard run,
which put the game out of reach for Robinson
(10-3 overall). It was 28-10 by the end of the third
frame.
Glades Central's Robert Burgess caught a
5 yard touchdown pass his only catch from
Rowley to notch the final score in the fourth quar
ter.
Glades Central's defense limited Robinson
(Tampa) to 176 total yards of offense and caught
two interceptions in the game.
Glades Central (12-1 overall) earned the right
to a rematch with defending state champion Co-
coa at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando on Saturday,
Dec. 11.
Notes: Glades Central will try to avenge last
season's heartbreaking loss to Cocoa, a 27-13 de-
feat which denied them a state title. Should they
turn the tables on the Tigers, they'll win that elu-
sive seventh state championship, which would be
second most in FHSAA history.

Santamaria gives back
Commissioner Jess Santamaria was all smiles at the Walmart, having helped
to give 100 Glades families the opportunity to shop for the holidays.

Careful coordination
There were plenty of sheriff's deputies and administrators available for Tues-
day's event in Royal Palm Beach to help Glades families shop for the holi-
days.

"Beginning in January, we will be distributing
at the Florida Turnpike Welcome Centers. Cable
television spots will begin on the east and west
coast of Flir i, 1i. -i ..IIII_: in late January through
early March that will target outdoor enthusiasts,"
says Lankton.
This new initiative has gained widespread
support from the cities around the lake, including
the mayors of Belle Glade, Pahokee, South Bay,
and Clewiston, who were in attendance at the un-
veiling ceremonies.
Belle Glade Mayor Steve Wilson said he was
"Absolutely astounded by the video," and ex-
plained that the Glades area needs this promo-
tion. "This is a great marketing piece that we have
lacked," he said.


to accommodate more people itself, will have to
increase its staff.
Ms. Gannon said there are plans to do so, but
the request to the Department of Revenue is not
finalized. One other change that is anticipated
is the exact date when the office will be able to
move from its present location to its permanent
location, right next door, after the sheriff's office
completes its own transition to the new jail and
administration building and leaves more space
available for constitutional offices.
In the meantime, the office is hoping that resi-
dents will show up on Dec. 14 to take part in the
opening event. The office is also partnering with
the Florida Highway Patrol on that day, to help
distribute a limited number of infant and booster
seats. Technicians will be on-hand to properly in-
stall the seats.

Pahokee Mayor JP Sasser says he is very
pleased with the final results. "I think it portrays
the Glades in a way that shows how our area is
unique," he said.
Perception is everything when you're trying
to market something, and no one knows that
better than Phil Bacon. Bacon, vice president of
Neighborhood and Regional Initiatives for the
Collins Center says, "Our goal has been to help
the stakeholders in the area understand that their
economic destiny is lied to one another and that,
collectively, each community stands to gain if the
entire region becomes an attractive place to live
and invest." He added, "Our collaboration has
and will center on these issues."
Partners in the efforts by LORI and the Collins
Center include the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District and Palm Beach State College. The
LORI group, which is made up of representatives
from Pahokee to Moore Haven, has been working
on several issues over the past couple of years,
including the continuation of the Palm Tran bus
route from Belle Glade to Clewiston, improving
the intersection of S.R. 80 and U.S. 27 and pro-
curing and distributing maps showing the infra-
structure, land and water resources in the area
and helping the Florida Rural Area Construction
Cooperation (FRACC) create jobs.
Clewiston Mayor Mali Gardner lauds the pro-
motional video and brochures and says, "This is
a great opportunity for additional support for the
Glades communities in promoting our region.
Most importantly, for me, this is the right time for
the Glades community to welcome people from
across the state, the U.S. and the world."

High school students from Clark Advanced
Learning Center recently spent a day identifying
grasses, shrubs and vines at the DuPuis Manage-
ment Area to experience science in action through
Legacy, a new South Florida Water Management
District environmental education program. The
hands-on program connects water resource and
environmental education with land management
activities. Legacy partners local high schools with
District-managed public lands, where teachers
and students learn by collecting information that
will add to the knowledge and experience relied
on by District land managers to make real-world
decisions.
"Legacy is giving students in Martin and St.
Lucie counties the opportunity to experience the
same lands that I enjoyed while growing up in
this area," said SFWMD Governing Board mem-
ber Kevin Powers. "We hope this educational
program creates a bond between students and
these natural areas and maybe even inspires
some of them to become land managers."
Originally developed by the St. Johns River
Water Management District, the Legacy program
utilizes the SFWMD's expertise in land manage-
ment, water resource and environmental science
to create classroom-specific activities tailored to
certain sites. The goals of the program include:
,.i, .iiLl -.-_: the connection of District lands
with water resource and environmental educa-
tion, providing communities with new opportuni-
ties to benefit from public lands, enhancing en-
vironmental stewardship in youth, encouraging


recreational use of public lands.
The 12 Clark Advanced Learning Center stu-
dents participating in Legacy at DuPuis are taking
an environmental science class through a dual
enrollment program offered by their school and
Indian River State College. On their recent visit,
the students were trying to determine what types
of plants were growing within a one-square-me
ter sampling area thick with saw palmetto.
Junior Brayton Bass said he first joined Legacy
because it will help him earn community service
credits, but his motivation quickly changed.
"Once I got out here, I realized it was a pretty
unique experience," Bass said. "You don't get a lot
of nature up around Hobe Sound and Jupiter."
Information collected by students about the
"whats and where" of plant communities at
DuPuis will help land managers build a picture
of how habitats respond to management efforts,
including prescribed burning, hydrologic restora-
tion and exotic plant control. The students will
visit DuPuis a few times a year to gather data and
then share their results with the District. Through
Legacy, students can interact with the environ-
ment in a way that inspires them to value South
Florida's conservation lands and encourage oth-
ers to do the same, said Dan Thayer, SFWMD Di-
rector of the V\ .. i .... and Land Management
Department. The 22,000-acre DuPuis Manage-
ment Area in western Martin County is one of
four sites around the 16-county District that will
be part of the Legacy program in 2010-2011. The
multi-use natural area is interspersed with number
ous ponds, wet prairies, cypress domes, pine flat
woods and remnant Everglades marsh.
