Kickoff Classic football games this weekend


Four area teams play
tomorrow night; Glades
Central goes to Miami on
Saturday

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION - Are you ready
for some football?
That's quite possibly a no-brainer for just
about anyone who lives in the area.
.With the 2009 Kickoff Classic games
coming tomorrow night (Aug. 28) and Sat-
urday night (Aug. 29), it should make for an
entertaining, if not exhilarating, weekend.
Over in Glades County, the Moore Haven
Terriers will be at home tomorrow night
against Coral Springs Christian, with the
scheduled kickoff to be at 7 p.m.
The Clewiston Tigers, meanwhile, will be
traveling to Stuart on Friday night, with.a road
game against Class 5A power South Fork.
South Fork lost in the Class 5A regional
semifinals last year to eventual state and na-
tional champion St. Thomas Aquinas.
It goeswithout saying that Clewiston will
have to play its best in order to come away
victorious on the road.
The Clewiston-South Fork game is slated
for 7 p.m. Friday night.
As for the Glades Day Gators, they will be
on the road tomorrow night against John


INI/Naji Tobias
Glades Day's Kelvin Taylor is expecting to have a big running game against
John Carroll tomorrow night (Aug. 28)


Carroll, a team that moved down from Class
2B to Class 1A this year.
It should be a contest easily won by
Glades Day, but anything can happen. The
Glades Day-John Carroll game is.scheduled
for 7 p.m.


The Pahokee Blue Devils will be playing
themselves tomorrow night at the newly
christened Anquan Boldin Sports Complex
in Pahokee.
That contest is actually called the Blue-
White scrimmage game, with players such


,as wideouts De'Joshua Johnson and Chris
Dunkley likely squaring off against defensive
backs Raheam Buxton and Merill Noel.
It could be one of the matchups to look
out for in the Pahokee lights on Friday.
The week's best contest goes to the
Glades Central Raiders, as they will be trav-
eling to Miami in a Saturday night matchup
with Class 6A team Carol City (Miami).
With the game set to be played at Traz
Powell Stadium - Glades Central last ap-
peared there two years ago in a 35-21 spring
game loss to Northwestern (Miami) - it
should be a fully packed venue, with many
fans from both teams expected to show up.
That game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
None of these games will count on the
teams' records, as regular season play be-
gins next Frday (Sep. 4).
Notes: Coming next week will be the
team previews from Moore Haven, Clewis-
ton, Glades Central, Glades Day and Paho-
kee.
Also, the first-ever Hot 25 Super Seniors
list will be released.
In addition, results from all of the kickoff
games will be highlighted.
Here's hoping that fans can sit back and
enjoy the 2009 high school football season.

The new Lakeside Medical Center is equipped with advanced medical
technology. It's stocked with modern equipment and packed with up-to-date
procedures.
All of which are important.
But even more important are the people who will provide round-the-
clock care-the nurses, nursing assistants, and others on the front lines. So
we've staffed our new hospital with people equipped with understanding,
stocked with compassion, and filled with empathy:
It's as good as it gets in health care-and you II get it

Preparing to go back to school with Diabetes


Back to school can be stressful for ev-
eryone, but for children living with diabe-
tes, preparing to go back to school is much
more complicated.
It often involves parents, teachers, ad-
ministration, school nurses, cafeteria staff
and coaches teaming up to ensure the child
remains healthy.
Proper diabetes management, especially
important for children, requires a large time
commitment and significant understanding
of the disease from diabetic children and
from the people they spend time with every
day.
Marc Wolf RPh, founder and CEO of Dia-
betic Care Services, a leading mail order pro-
vider of diabetic supplies and prescriptions,
offers some tips for parents to help their
children return to school when diabetes is
a factor.
Tips for Managing Diabetes at
School
* Before school begins, schedule a meet-
ing with your child's teacher, administrator,
school nurse and cafeteria staff to discuss his
or her personal diabetes management plan.

- Bring written copies of the plan to leave
with each person who may be responsible


for your child. It should include information
on your child's medication, including when
it should be taken, proper dosage, proper
technique for administering the medication,
who should administer medication (your
child, the school nurse, or another designat-
ed staff member) and the reasons why your
child takes it, as well as who to contact and
what actions to take in case of emergency,
how to recognize warning signs of high and
low blood sugar, and a nutrition plan for
both regular meals and snacks.

* Review the personal diabetes manage-
ment plan with your child.

- If he or she is old enough, your child
will be able to manage most testing and
medication independently, but should also
know who he or she can turn to when help
is needed.

- For younger children, explain that an-
other person will be taking over the tasks
their mom or dad might usually perform
while at school.

- Seek feedback from your child daily to
ensure he or she feels comfortable with the
situation and to assess how he or she feels
throughout the day.


* Pack healthy snacks for your child to
battle sudden low blood sugar, and ensure
school staff will allow your child to access
these snacks when needed.

* Ask the school nurse to store extra test-
ing supplies and medications as back up.

* Teach your child not to share snacks or
trade food items with other students while
at lunch.

* Establish a routine for your child right
away so he or she adapts habits for eating,
testing and taking medication at the same
time each day - whether in school, at prac-
tice or at home after school. Most impor-
tantly, ensure your child goes to bed on time
with no distractions to prevent them from
falling asleep. .

* It is normal for parents to feel stressed
when children head back to school, but it is
important to remain as calm as possible so
that your child also feels relaxed. High stress
levels can cause spikes in blood glucose lev-
els due to adrenaline released by the body.

* Encourage your child to be an active
participant in physical education class and


even to join an athletic team. Just be sure
to meet with coaches in advance to discuss
your child's personal diabetes management
plan.
* Ask your child's teacher to invite a dia-
betes educator to speak with the class. The
local diabetes association can provide re-
sources for locating an educator, who can
explain the basics of diabetes to your child's
classmates (i.e. that it is not contagious) and
answer any questions they might have. Your
child will feel more comfortable managing
diabetes while at school if he or she isn't
greeted with questions or stares.
* Make sure your child wears a diabetic
ID bracelet or necklace at all times. Bracelets
are inexpensive and can be purchased on-
line at www.diabeticcareservices.com.

Funds help hospital come close to completion


Belle Glade - Despite the economy, the
Glades Healthcare Foundation's mission to
raise funds for the new Lakeside Medical
Center has been a huge success. The addi-
tion of a $360,000 donation from the Sugar
Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida draws
the campaign even closer to its $1.5 million
matching challenge grant from The Kresge
Foundation and guarantees the hospital's
opening this fall.
The Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative gift
will provide a waiting room outside the ER,
as well as one of the 70-bed, private patient
rooms. The.donation joins recent gifts from
the Hill Foundation ($250,000), the Rooney
Family and Palm Beach Kennel Club gift
($50,000) and the Workforce Alliance gift of
$25,000 for nurse training.
Lakeside Medical Center, Palm Beach
County's only public hospital, will replace
the current Glades General Hospital which
opened in the 1940's.
About the Sugar Cane Growers Cooper-
ate of Florida:
The Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of
Florida is a 54 grower member organization
where each member, no matter the size of
the farm, has an equal vote in all decisions.
Membership in the Cooperative provides the
farmer the resources, technical and regula-
tory support, marketing and legal services
usually affordable by only the largest farm-
ing operations. The Cooperative has made
it possible for family farmers to stay at the
leading edge of technology; make use of the
latest advancements in science to protect


and preserve the environment; and provide
economic stability and viability to an increas-
ingly complex business.
Glades Healthcare Foundation is lead-
ing the fund raising campaign for the new
70-bed, $67 million community hospital in
the Glades that will serve more than 40,000
residents. Thanks to a commitment of $53
million from the Health Care District of
Palm Beach County, and the generosity of
individuals and organizations, the campaign
has reached 89% of its goal. Lakeside Medi-

Hendry Regional Medical Center explains fever in kids


If you're a parent, you've probably experi-
enced this scenario: You wake up in the mid-
dle of the night to find your child flushed, hot
and sweaty. Your little one's forehead feels
warm.
You immediately suspect a fever, but are
unsure of what to do next. Should you get
out the thermometer or call the erfergency
room?
In healthy kids, typically, fevers don't in-
dicate anything serious. Although it can. be
frightening when your child's temperature
rises, on the average, a fever causes no harm
and can sometimes be a good thing - it's of-
ten the body's way of fighting infections -
both bacterial and viral.
Fever occurs when the body's internal
thermostat raises the body temperature
above its normal level. A normal tempera-
ture is about 98.6 F, when taken orally (by
mouth). Temperatures taken rectally (by
rectum) usually run one degree higher than
those taken orally.
What causes fever?
It's important to remember that fever by
itself is not an illness. It's usually a symptom
of an underlying problem. Fever has several
potential causes:
* Infection: Most fevers are caused by
infection or other illnesses. Fever helps the
body fight infections by stimulating natural
defense mechanisms.
* Overdressing: Infants, especially new-
borns, may get fevers if they're over-bundled
or in a hot environment because they don't
regulate their body temperature as well as
older children. However, because fevers in
newborns can indicate serious infections,
even infants who are overdressed must be
evaluated by a doctor if they have a fever.
* Immunizations: Babies and children
sometimes get low-grade fevers after getting
vaccinated.
* Teething - Although teething may
cause a slight rise in body temperature, it's
probably not the cause if a child's tempera-
ture is higher than 100 F.
When can a fever be a sign of
something serious?
In the past, doctors advised treating a fe-
ver on the basis of temperature alone. Now,
however, they recommend considering both


the temperature and the child's overall con-
dition.
Kids whose temperatures are lower than
102 F often don't require medication, unless
they're uncomfortable. There's one impor-
tant exception to this rule: If you have an
infant 3 months or younger with a rectal
temperature of 100.4 F or higher, call your
doctor or go to the emergency room imme-
diately. Even a slight fever can be a sign of
a potentially serious infection in very young
infants.
If you child is between 3 months and 3
years old and has a fever of 102.2 F or high-
er, call a physician to see if your child needs
to be seen. For older children, take behavior
'and activity levels into consideration. Your
child is probably NOT serious if he/she:
* Is still interested in playing,
* is eating and drinking well,
* is alert and smiling,
* has normal skin color,
* looks well when temperature comes
down.
Don't worry too much if your child has a
fever, but doesn't want to eat. This is com-
mon with infections that cause fever. More
importantly, make certain your child drinks
and urinates normally.
How can I know if my child has
a fever?
Sometimes a gentle kiss on the forehead
or a hand placed lightly on your child's skin
is often enough to give you a hint that your
child has a fever. The most reliable method
is using a thermometer. Your child has a fe-
ver if his/her temperature is at or above one
of these levels: 100.4 F measured rectally;
99.5 F measured orally; or 99 F measured
under the arm.
Because fevers may rise and fall, a child
with fever might experience chills, as the
body tries to generate additional heat and as
its temperature begins to rise. The child may
sweat as the body releases extra heat when
the temperature begins to drop.
Sometimes kids with fever breathe faster
than usual and may have a higher heart rate.
You should call the doctor if your child is
having difficulty breathing, is breathing fast-
er than normal, or continues to breathe fast
after the fever comes down.
Helping your child to feel

What should you do if your child gets
a fever?

better
Here are ways to alleviate symptoms that
accompany a fever, which makes your child
feels uncomfortable or fussy:
* Give acetaminophen or ibuprofen,
based on the package recommendation for
age or weight. If you don't know the recom-
mended dosage, or if your child is younger
than two years, call the doctor to find out
how much to give. Remember that fever
medication will usually temporarily bring a
temperature down, but it will not return it
to normal - and it won't treat the underly-
ing reason for the fever. NEVER give aspirin
to a child, due to its association with Reye
syndrome, a rare and potentially fatal dis-
ease. Infants who are under two months
old should not be given medication for fever
without being evaluated by a doctor. If your
child has any medical problems, check with
a physician to see which medication is best
to use.
* Giving a sponge bath can make your
child more comfortable and help bring the
fever down. Use only lukewarm water; cool


water may cause shivering, which actually
raises the body temperature. NEVER use
alcohol (it can cause poisoning when ab-
sorbed through the skin). NEVER use ice
packs/cold baths (they can cause chills that
may raise body temperature).
* Dress your child in lightweight cloth-
ing and cover with a light sheet or blanket.
Overdressing and over-bundling can prevent
body heat from escaping and can cause a
temperature to rise.
* Offer plenty of fluids to avoid dehydra-
tion - a fever will cause a child to lose fluids
more rapidly.
* If your child is also vomiting and/or has
diarrhea, ask the doctor if you should give
an electrolyte (rehydration) solution made
especially for kids.
* If your child wants to eat - let him/her,
but don't force eating.

When to call a doctor
The exact temperature that should trigger
a call to the doctor depends on the age of the
child, the illness, and whether the child has
other symptoms associated with the fever.
Call a doctor if you have:
* An infant younger than 3 months with a
temperature of 100.4 F or higher.
* An older child with a temperature high-
er than 102.2 F.
Call a doctor if an older child has a fever
of less than 102.2 F but also:
* Refuses fluids or seems too ill to drink
adequately,
* has persistent diarrhea or repeated
vomiting,
* has any sign of dehydration (urinating
less than usual, not having tears when cry-
ing, less alert, and less active than usual)
* has a specific complaint (sore throat
earache, etc.)
* still has a fever after 24 hours in kids
(younger than 2 years) or 72 hours (in kids 2
years or older).
Trust your instinct - if you suspect your
child is sick - you're probably right. You
know your child better than anyone.

A Walk in the Past: The a



Seminoles Emigrate 1-800-FLA- LA
a * A Yl alhBAaWAA * l *~adk.4


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The wind began to blow, creating fester-
ing dust storms, which evolved into towering
clouds of dirt that turned the horizon black.
The dark, floating mass moved across the
dry, abandoned fields like a giant creature,
hissing and roaring as it slithered along the
thirsty land's cracked and parched soil.
Gaunt onlookers sought shelter in their
cabins and watched with stricken eyes as
the bellowing, blackened behemoth moved
across the brown and withered landscape
before engulfing their world in darkness.
Small granules of sand and fine dirt
poured through the cracks of the cabins like
water, filling them with dust that clogged
the occupant's eyes and mouth with one of
Mother Nature's most precious gifts - Top-
soil.
The droughts (Dust Bowl) that struck the
west in the 1930s uprooted thousands of
people, who fled drought stricken states like
Oklahoma in their search for jobs and food.
A drought in the 1820s, brought the same
destruction to the Seminole Nation in Flor-
ida.
It is time to take a "Walk in The Past" and
read about the Seminole Indian Reservation
in ole Florida.
Southern settlers had long been covet-
ing Florida, so jubilee spread across Georgia
when the United States officially took pos-
session of Florida in 1821.
Georgia settlers began moving into Flor-
ida and soon conflict with the Seminoles
over land ownership, black slaves and free
ranging cattle spread like a wildfire across
the Florida frontier.
The United States was on a collision
course with the Seminole Nation and saw
but one resolution to its Indian problem: Re-
move the Indians from Florida or place them
in a restricted area.
The U.S. government considered relocat-
ing the Seminoles to Creek lands in Alabama
and Georgia, but the settlers didn't want an-
other Indian problem.
The Seminoles weren't happy about hav-
ing Creeks as neighbors, so Alabama and
Georgia were ruled out.
Lands west of the Mississippi River were
also considered, but dropped because the
United States knew little about that region.
Reservations in Florida became the final
solution for the Seminole Nation. Govern-
ment appointed officials were given the task
to arrange a meeting with the Seminoles
and establish the reservations.
The Seminoles and Americans meet five
miles from St. Augustine on the banks of
Moultrie Creek.
Approximately 425 Indians attended the
meeting and negotiations lasted two weeks
before the Treaty of Moultrie Creek was
signed.
The Indians gave up all ownership to
lands in Florida except for reservation lands
stipulated in the treaty.
A new reservation was established for
the Indians that started just north of Ocala


and ended south of Peace River.
An amendment was later added to the
treaty, which gave several resilient chiefs
permission to continue living in their villages
(small reservations) along the Apalachicola
River.
The Seminole Nation gave up approxi-
mately 24 million acres in exchange for
roughly five million acres of reservation
land.
It was indeed a poor business deal for
the Seminoles, but a necessary one, if the
Seminoles wished to live in peace with the
whites.
The treaty was quote "negotiated," be-
tween two parties, the Seminole Nation and
the United States.
In truth, it was a non-negotiable plan,
willed and dictated by the stronger party, the
United States.
The Seminoles never wished to leave
their homelands or cede them to a foreign
power.
Their signatures at Moultrie Creek were
the written, diplomatic responses of an in-
timidated, weaker nation, which was subju-
gated by the demands of a more powerful
nation.
The United States officials had secured
an official treaty document, signed and dot-
ted from the Seminoles, bequeathing Indian
lands to the United States.
Now the government officials were faced
with another challenge: How were they go-
ing to persuade or force the Seminoles to
relocate to the new reservation?
Simply put, the Seminoles were never
happy about ceding their lands or relocating
and for a better word, lacked enthusiasm.
Florida Governor DuVal, was also the ap-
pointed superintendent of Indian Affairs.
The responsibility to organize the Semi-
nole's move to the reservations was given to
him.
So he traveled throughout the Seminole
Nation, urging the Seminoles to make prep-
arations for the move.
However, it didn't take DuVal long to
come to the conclusion that the Indians
weren't going anywhere, until a show of
military force was used to persuade them.
The Indians disparity continued to wors-
en, causing the Seminoles to become so dis-
gruntled that war seemed inevitable.
The United States government had recog-
nized Seminole chief, Neamathla as the offi-
cial spokesperson for the Seminole Nation.
It was hoped that he would support
the treaty and encourage the Seminoles to
move.
Neamathla spoke out against the treaty
and soon had a large following of angry
Seminoles.
One day DuVal heard that a large group
of Indians had gathered at Neamathla's vil-
lage.
He quickly rode to the village with only an
interrupter and confronted a hostile crowd
of three hundred.
DuVall was once a frontiersman in the

wilds of Kentucky, where he had spent years
commercially hunting.
His life on the frontier had hardened and
shaped him for the angry crowd he now
stoically faced.
In a stern voice,, he told the assembled
warriors that they must meet him at St.
Marks on July 26, 1824, to resolve reserva-
tion issues or be destroyed by the armies of
the United States.
His fearlessness and bold accusations
probably saved his life, since the Indians re-
spected bravery.
Neamathla arrived in St. Marks at the ap-
pointed time with six hundred Indians.
DuVal had prepared for their arrival with
an assembled army as a show of force.
He dismissed Neamathla as the chief
representative of the Seminole Nation and
replaced him with John Hicks (Tuckose
Emathla).
John Hicks was more cooperative with
the Americans and helped maintain peace
during the stressful, relocation period.
Moving the quieted Seminoles to their
new reservation land would still be a hercu-
lean task for DuVal.
The season was already too far advanced
for the Indians to move and contracts for
beef, corn, pork, flour, etc had not been ad-
vertised and completed.
Arrangements for tools and stock were
also pending, while Indian crops waited to
be harvested.
Many logistical problems still needed to
be addressed: How many Indians living in
Florida were, entitled to the assistance prom-
ised by the Treaty of Moultrie Creek?
Distribution points for these supplies
were limited to two places, the St. Johns Riv-
er and Tampa Bay, so how could qualified
Indians living in a 300 mile radius receive
these supplies?
There also weren't enough horses avail-
able to transport the Indians and their pro-
cessions to the reservation.
The surmounting problems for relocating
the Seminoles were never ending and DuVal
had his hands full.
Ironically, the Seminole Nation at times
had internal issues that DuVal had to ref-
eree.
Most Seminoles descended from the
Creeks, a name thought to have originated
from the English.
The English and later Americans applied
the name to most Indians living in the South-
east, regardless of their culture and nation.
Most of the Indians in the Creek Confed-
eracy spoke either Muskogee (largest group)
or Hitchiti.
The Hitchiti Indians were already settled
in the Southeast when the Muskogee speak-
ing Indians arrived and conquered them.
Over time, the Muskogee, Hitchitis and
other Indian nations formed alliances, which
eventually became known as the Creek Con-
federacy.
The Hithiti speaking "Creeks" are thought
to be some of the first Indians from the Creek
Confederacy to settle in La Florida.
Spanish and English records indicate that
Hitchiti speaking Indians (Mikasuki) estab-
lished Florida settlements as early as 1750.


Muskogee speaking Indians from the Creek
Confederacy are thought to have come later,
but in greater numbers.
The English took possession of Florida in
1763, and held it until 1783.
The English left a legacy during their 20
years in Florida that still lives on today.
They started calling the various Indian
nations in Florida, "Seminoles," a name the
Americans continued to use after they pur-
chased Florida.
Hitchiti and Muskogee cultural differ-
ences created problems in the Creek Con-
federacy.
These cultural differences persisted even
after various groups from both nations
moved into La Florida and became known
as Seminoles.
So DuVal dealt not only with trying to
keep peace among whites and Seminoles,
but also among the different Indian cultures
in the Seminole Nation.
At one point two Indian towns were
fighting each other, using knives and clubs
and DuVal had to call in troops.
In 1824, the Seminole nation started mov-
ing onto the new reservation.
The uprooted Indians were forced to rely
heavily on government assistance until fields
were cleared, planted and harvested on the
reservation lands.
The Indians complained that the new
lands weren't productive and couldn't sus-
tain them.
DuVal personally rode the new reserva-
tion.lands to verify their reports.
He found the land to be poor and re-
quested additional lands for the Indians.
The new reservation was increased 15%,
to include an area known as Big Swamp.
It was unfortunate that the additional fer-
tile lands failed to resolve the food shortages
for the Seminoles.
A severe drought had descended on the
Southeast and created havoc for both settler
and Indian.
The Seminoles were hit harder by the
drought because they couldn't relocate be-
yond the boundaries of the reservation.
The government allotments weren't suf-
ficient to sustain the Seminoles Indians, who
were now confined to the drought stricken
reservation.
Governor DuVal and Indian agent Gad
Humphreys requested additional funds for
the Seminole's plight, but Washington's bu-
reaucratic wheels moved slow, too slow.
Starving Indians began to die and many
left the reservation in search of food.
They raided white settlements, stealing
cattle, pigs and farm products, which stirred
resentment and violence between the Semi-
noles and whites.

Workforce Alliance Program provides summer jobs for PBC youths

Workforce Alliance Program provides summer jobs for PBC youths


Palm Beach County - More than one
thousand young adults of Palm Beach
County, aged 18 to 24, have obtained sum-
mer jobs at employer worksites throughout
Palm Beach County with their wages being
paid by Workforce Alliance. The funds are
being provided by the American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act of 2009, commonly
known as the "Stimulus Bill" and the jobs
are being provided by area businesses and
municipalities.
Kathryn Schmidt, President and Chief Ex-
ecutive Officer of Workforce Alliance, said,
"The entire community contributed to mak-
ing the summer youth program successful
and can be justly proud of its results. The
Palm Beach County employers participat-
ing in the program are very pleased with
their 'summer hires.' The participants went
through a required three-day work readiness
course prior to reporting to their six-week
employment assignment."
Ms. Schmidt added, "We are very thank-
ful to the businesses and municipalities who
volunteered to take part in the program by
providing safe and meaningful employment
experiences that will help the young partici-
pants get started on a career, or earn money
to further their education."
Participating employers and youth have.
shared these comments:
FASTSIGNS of North Palm Beach em-
ployed participant Andrew Cesar at its
Northlake Blvd. facility and owner, Lisa Bon-
durant said, "He is an interested and quick


learner, and is also extremely appreciative of
any training and assistance he is provided."
The company has rotated him from the pro-
duction side to the graphics department for
a full learning experience with the business.
One of the projects he completed was a sign
to be used by Workforce Alliance as it places
its mobile resource units in community out-
reach locations.
Sancilio and Company, a pharmaceutical
manufacturer, filled five positions in produc-
tion and three in administration at their two
Palm Beach County facilities. Owner, Alex
Sancilio, explained, "We began by having
each participant fill out an application and
then go through an interview process. We
then put them through proper training be-
fore placing them in what we determined to
be the right work position for each individu-
al. They now work right alongside scientists
and are part of our team."
Erickson Farm in Canal Point employed
two of the summer youth and Krista Er-
ickson, operations manager of the 60-acre
farm, gave high praise to the program: "All
potential employers want people with expe-
rience. Now, both of our participants have
solid workplace experience and will have a
reference to place on their resumes when
seeking future employment. One of the par-
ticipants is an office assistant and the second
youth helps in the process of packing crates
of fruits for shipping to customers all over
the world."
The Legal Aid Society of. Palm Beach


County employed Shanique Jarret, 19, of
West Palm Beach, and assigned her to proj-
ects that employ her considerable skills in
computer literacy. Ms. Jarret said she is im-
pressed by the professional atmosphere of
the office, and plans to attend Palm Beach
Community College at the end of the sum-
mer program. "I plan to take courses leading
to a teaching position, and then continue to
study something related to law."
Taylor Productions of Lake Worth and the
City of West Palm Beach Northwood Youth
Empowerment Center Four accepted four of
the youth participants for summer employ-
ment. Company President, Dwayne Taylor,
said, "They are learning video production
techniques and are involved in producing
a documentary on their own program, the
Workforce Alliance summer employment
program." Upon completion, the documen-
tary will be placed on the Workforce Alli-
ance web site.
Jeff Industries' Tim Tycocki is very pleased
with the results of the program and said,
"This program helps the youth and it helps
our business. Just as Brandon got here, we
got an unexpected job. He stepped right in,
learned the techniques and is helping get the
job done." The participant, Brandon Barrett,
said, "I'm glad to get the opportunityto learn
the trade here at Jeff Industries. Without it, I
would probably have spent the summer just
hanging out on the street with my friends."
Lagoon Keepers, a company that does
boat repair and salvage work, employed


three participants. The Executive Directoi
and Founder, Greg Reynolds, said, "They are
learning boat repair, the use of basic tools aw
well as some unusual industry-specific tools
and are also accompanying our crews as we
respond to boating hazards."
The Riviera Beach Marina is one of the
worksites for youths hired by the City ol
Riviera Beach. Dockmaster David Napiei
said, "The young men assigned here wil
learn a wide variety of marina tasks during
the six week period." He and his staff ini-
tially instructed the summer employees ir
the safety precautions that are necessary ir
such operations as using a forklift to move
boats. The four youths employed at the site
are James Dorsey, Joshua Hutchinson, Tror
Johnson, and Timothy Lowery II.
Workforce Alliance, as the organization
chartered by the State of Florida to develop
a quality workforce system in Palm Beact
County, was the recipient of the Stimulus
Bill funds to operate the summer program.
Workforce Alliance operates three Career
Centers and Professional Placement Cen-
ters that offer workforce and employment
services to all employers and to both youtl
and adult job seekers in the County on z
year-round basis. The Career Centers are
located in Belle Glade, Boynton Beach anc
West Palm Beach. The addresses and phone
numbers are listed -on the Workforce Alli-
ance website, www.pbcalliance.com.


Glades Central High School Reading Activity


Glades Central Com-
munity High School has
partnered with Sun News
to promote reading com-
prehension. On a bi-week-
ly basis, we will provide a
short passage for students
to read and answer ques-
tions. Please support this initiative by having
your child participate in this academic activ-
ity.
Directions: After reading the passage
below, write the correct answers in the
space provided. Drop the answer sheet in the
Reading box located in Student Services.


Passage 1:
Airplanes are such a common form of
travel that it's easy to forget just how re-
cently they were invented. Today, even a
person in the middle of nowhere would not
be surprised to see a plane in the sky. But
before the Wright Brothers flew their plane
at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 1903, most
scientists thought flight by heavier-than-air
machines would never be achieved. Never.
In fact, the word airplane didn't come into
common usage until after 1945.

1. The reference to the "person in the


middle of nowhere" serves primarily to:
a. Introduce a new argument.
b. Challenge common beliefs.
c. Highlight the limitations of an accepted
idea.
d. Question modern morals.
e. Indicate the scope of a change.

2. The author of the passage would most
likely agree with each of the following state-
ments EXCEPT:
a. Airplanes are a relatively recent innova-
tion.
b. The Wright Brothers took the first air-
plane flight.


c. Air travel remains the privilege of the
elite.
d. The word airplane was rarely used in
the early twentieth century.
e. Airplanes can be seen almost any-
where.

Get in the

wheelbarrow and

bell the cat
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church
French daredevil acro-
bat Charles Blondin gained
fame as the first person to
walk across Niagara Falls on
a tightrope:
In 1860, Blondin crossed
the Niagara Falls again on
a 335-meter tightrope sus-
pended 50 meters above the
raging water.
Then to the amazement
of the crowd, he crossed it
again pushing a wheelbar-
row in front of him.
When his manager asked
the crowd if they believed
Blondin could cross back to
the other side with a man in
the wheelbarrow, they all
enthusiastically- expressed,
their confidence in the Great
Blondin.
However, when the man-
ager invited anyone in the
crowd to get into the wheel-
barrow, no one took him up
on his offer.
The manager himself
then got in the wheelbarrow
and Blondin took him safely
across.
Everyone had believed
that Blondin could perform
the feat, but no one acted on
their faith.
Aesop once told a fable
about a group of mice who
lived in a barn.
Life was wonderful, ex-
cept for a sneaky cat.
Hardly a day went by
without a poor mouse being
chased or even eaten by the
cat.
Finally, the head mouse
called a meeting.
"Ladies and gentlemen,
youngsters and baby mice,"
he stated.
"The time is now come
to resolve our problems with
the cat. Does anyone have
any solutions?"
The mice were abuzz
with ideas and suggestions,
but none seemed to solve
the problem.
Then a young mouse got
up, took the floor, and said
boldly, "Let's hang a bell
around the cat's neck. That
way, whenever the cat is
near, we'll hear the ringing
and safely hide."
The crowd applauded
loudly as the young mouse
took his seat.
Once the applause died


down, an elderly mouse
rose to his feet and said,
"Our young friend's plan is
simple yet ingenious. Once
the bell is on the cat, we'll
all live safely. But I have one
brief question to put to you
all: Which one of you will
volunteer to bell the cat?"
Jesus gives us a new idea
and a new standard of what
life can be like.
We can travel safely over
the chasms of life if we let
Him push the wheel bar-
row.
We can have a new sense
of safety if the threatening
cats in our lives are belled.
But then, there's always
the question, isn't there?
Who's willing to risk step-
ping out and acting on what
they profess to believe?
Who's willing to do the
hard, dirty, perhaps even
dangerous work of the King-
dom of God that needs to be
done?
Who's willing to get in
the wheelbarrow?
Who's willing to bell the
cat?

Control! Or not

being in control

and thinking

about why not?
By The Reverend
Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church,
Clewiston
As I thought about the
hurricane season, the word
that came to mind was "un-
predictability."
Hurricanes come upon
us almost out of nowhere, at
an intensity which we can-
not control, take a direction
that may or may not impact
us directly, and never are
welcomed by anyone.
Someone described them
as "Mother Nature's vacuum
cleaner": they cut a wide
Spath wherever they go and
change the landscape back
to a more natural state, re-
moving lots of what has
been added since nature
first put down the flora and
fauna.
If there are two things
people do not like it's (1) un-
predictability, and (2) some-
one re-arranging their world
without their permission.
How many times I have
heard "A place for everything
and everything in it's place!"


See Columns - Page 20


We get those stark re-
minders that life can be very
unpredictable and in spite all
of our best efforts to order
things as we want, we're not
in control.
Whether it's a hurricane,
raising children, a love affair,
illness, being laid off, you-
name-it; those moments
come when, in spite of all of
our efforts, things don't go
as we want.
I have look at my life and
realize somebody other than
me is in control.
Oh sure, there are parts
that I have a hand in direct-
ing, and hope that I direct to
the best of my ability.
Other parts, though, are
completely beyond anything
I can do to change them;
somebody else is in control.
What to do?
I believe God is in con-
trol.
The author of life and
the universe; knows how it
should run.
He knows what it takes to
make it possible for people
to live together and to live
well, He gives us directions
along the way.
I cannot expect to ignore
what God has done and how
He has planned things if I
want things to work out.
Many times over the years
I've been asked to pray with
someone who has abused
their system terribly, and
then to ask God to intervene
on their behalf, that they
might get well.
I do, because I believe
God does intervene, and be-
cause miracles happen, but
I also believe that we have a
responsibility to take control
when and where we can.
At least, let's cooperate
with God if we would wish
to have Him intervene on
our behalf.
That can be inconve-
nient, or things might not go
our way, but it offers a better
chance of living well, happy
and at peace, than by go-
ing off and "doing our own
thing" and expecting God
to show up when we're in
trouble.
That much, I can control
- not everything, but I feel
better about calling on Him
and saying "I've done my
part, Lord, you're in charge
and 'thy will be done'."
We pray time and
again "Thy will be done...
"(Matthew 6:10)" Doesn't
that really mean we recog-

nize who is in control?
Isn't that how it should be?

My convictions!
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Two weeks ago I stated in this column
that all the great men of the Bible and of His-
tory have been men of conviction!
Last week I spoke of the Conscience,
when properly train by the truth, should be
followed without fail.
I try to be a man of conviction and one
who follows his Conscience.
Therefore I want to tell you why I cannot
and do not support this present administra-
tion in our Federal Government.
While I respect the office of President, i
do not respect the person who is President
and here's why:
It is because I do not share Obama's vi-
sionor Value system for America.
I do not share his Abortion beliefs.
I do not share his radical Marxist's con-
cept of re-distributing wealth; I do not share
his stated views on raising taxes on those
who make $150,000+ (the ceiling has been
changed three times since August).
I do not share his view that America is ar-
rogant.
I do not share his view that America is not
a Christian Nation.
I do not share his view that the military


should be reduced by 25 percent.
I do not share his view of amnesty and
giving more to illegals than American citi-
zens who need help.
I do not share his views on homosexual-
ity and his definition of marriage.
I do not share his views that Radical Is-
lam in our friend and Israel is our enemy
who should give up any land.
I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least
the ones he has made public).
I do not share his beliefs on how to re-
work the Healthcare system in America.
I do not share his Strategic Views of the
Middle East, and certainly do not share his
plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such
as Iran.
I do not share his view that we need to
apologize to foreign countries after all the
sacrifices this country has made to rescue
people from tyranny and establish free gov-
ernments, and after all the "hard earned"
money we have sent and continue to send
abroad to help the peoples of the nations.
The bottom line, my America is vastly
different from Obama's, and I have a higher
obligation to my Country and my God to do
what is Right!
It high time for men of conviction to
"stand up" and "speak out" before it is too
late to rescue our country from an adminis-
tration that is trying to take us speedily down
the wrong road.

FWC opens python captures to hunters on South Florida WMAs


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) and Big Cypress
National Preserve will implement a program
to reduce the number of Burmese pythons
in the wild in Florida. Beginning Aug. 29, the
FWC and Big Cypress will enlist the help of
licensed hunters on specific wildlife man-
agement areas in South Florida.
To move forward quickly for the 2009
hunting season, an executive order was
signed by the FWC to allow hunters on spe-
cific areas to take any Reptile of Concern, in-
cluding Burmese pythons, when the hunters
encounter them.
The order also will apply to those who
have received permits to participate in the
alligator hunt program in the specified areas.
The FWC will be considering rule changes
as necessary to follow up on this order for
more long-term measures.
The order states, "Reptiles of Concern
as listed in Rule 68A-6.007(l)(a)-(f may
be taken during established seasons for the
taking of game animals or alligators on the
areas and only by persons properly licensed
and permitted to take game animals ... or
alligators."
Reptiles of Concern may not be taken out
of the areas alive. The order also requires
hunters to report the take of Reptiles of Con-
cern within 36 hours and to provide the FWC
with specific data about the reptile taken.
For more information on data collection,
go to.the Quick Clicks area of MyFWC.com
and select "Burmese pythons."


The lands specified in the FWC order are
Everglades and Francis S. Taylor, Holey Land,
Rotenberger and Big Cypress wildlife man-
agement areas. Everglades National Park is
not a participant in this particular program.
However, the FWC is working with Big
Cypress, the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District and the National Park Service
to manage the Burmese python problem in
the area of South Florida that encompasses
the Everglades.
The Big Cypress National Preserve is in-
strumental in enlisting support from hunters
through its Partnering with Hunters pro-
gram.
"It is only natural that we enlist the aid of
hunters," said Rodney Barreto, FWC chair-
man. "Historically, hunters have played a
great role with wildlife conservation in this
country, and they know the land and have a
vested interest in conserving native habitat
and game species."
In July, the FWC began issuing permits
to selected recipients to go into these wild-
life management areas to search for and
euthanize Reptiles of Concern. The permit
holders and licensed hunters may remove
the hide and meat of the reptiles from the
state-managed lands. However, according
to the National Park Service, mercury testing
on two dozen captured Burmese pythons in
Everglades National Park revealed extraordi-
narily high levels of mercury in the meat.
These levels are well above those consid-
ered safe to eat in freshwater fish and alliga-


tors. The FWC is working with the National
Park Service and the Florida Department of
Health to get a broader view of this issue. It
will provide updates as further information
about mercury levels becomes available.
The FWC's goal for these programs is to
contain the spread of Burmese pythons in
the wild and prevent the establishment of
other Reptiles of Concern. Data collected by
hunters on these state-managed lands at the
edge of the range of Burmese pythons will
assist in preventing movement of pythons
out of this range.
It is estimated there are thousands of Bur-
mese pythons in the wild in South Florida.
Experts believe pet owners may have re-
leased pythons into the wild when they had
grown too large for the owners to care for
them.
It is illegal to release any nonnative spe-
cies, including Reptiles of Concern, into the
wild. Besides Burmese pythons, the FWC's
list of Reptiles of Concern include the. Indian
python, reticulated python, African rock py-
thon, amethystine or scrub python, green
anaconda and Nile monitor lizard.
If Reptile of Concern pet owners cannot
keep their snakes anymore, they can turn
the reptiles in during the FWC's Pet Amnesty
Days. These events are held around the state
to provide the opportunity for people to sur-
render their nonnative pets, with no ques-
tions asked.
The next one is Nov. 7 in the Tampa area.
Every attempt is made to place all healthy


animals with qualified adopters. People with
properly licensed Reptiles of Concern also
may give them to other licensed individuals.
For more information on Pet Amnesty Days,
go to MyFWC.com/Nonnatives.

Surgical procedures and techniques have made great strides in recent
years. With the opening of the new Lakeside Medical Center, we're right in
step here in our community.
Advanced technology allows surgeons to operate with smaller incisions,
enhanced vision, and more precision. Which means less pain and quicker
healing. And, often, recovering at home rather than in the hospital.
Our sophisticated new operating rooms are as
good as it gets-and, best of all, you get it right
here at home.

opportunity to improve their reading skills
through the media.
That initiative was an administrative de-
cision forged by Anderson and his assistant
principals - Henry Cook, Terence Hart, Dan
Hoffman and Angela Moore.
"Coming in as the new principal, I just
need to get the inside feeling of the school,"
Anderson said.
"The administrators are trying to give
me a better feel as to continue moving the
school in the right direction."

Truancy package and other
plans
More school initiatives include the con-
tinuation of a truancy package, set forth by
Dr. Coleman last year.
That package will go to students who are
absent from school more than three times
per semester.
The truancy package will then be for-
warded to the school district and the state
attorney's office.
Phone calls will be made to parents
should any student receive one or two ab-
sences - just like last year.
Consequences include loss of driver's
license for the student and his/her parents,
in addition to the possibility of being with-
drawn from Glades Central or getting trans-
ferred to an alternative school.
With that etched in place, Anderson is
encouraging all students to have a desire in


coming to school every day and being 'col-
lege ready.'
He wants more students to qualify for Ad-
vanced Placement and honors courses.
SIn addition, the principal would like to
see students deciding early on what career
path they may choose down the road.
The high school, which houses a career
academy, has a Digital Divide course, plus
industry certification programs in criminal
justice, engineering and nursing.
Also, there will be eight periods this year
- just like it was two years ago.
It's designed to serve as yet another aca-
demic initiative for underclassmen to gain
additional teacher assistance for reading,
math, science and writing.
"We want to let our kids know that 'Hey,
you're right there on the cusp,'" Anderson
said.
"Now we want to get them over the
top."
As the high schoolers passed through the
halls after third period last Friday (Aug. 28),
one could actually see Anderson encourag-
ing each student as the move from class to
class.
It's one thing that Anderson believes will
work when it comes to the area of self-con-
fidence.
"Let's have a great day," Anderson said to
all the students in the outside hallway area.
"Everyone graduates at Glades Central."
Notes: Beginning next Friday (Sep. 4),
the Glades Central Raiders football play-
ers and cheerleaders will be going to Pio-
neer Park Elementary School to read to the
younger students there.
The Glades Central administration sees
that as an opportunity for the high school-

school's students as he wants all of
them to be successful.

ers to. realize how important it is to being
role models in the lives of the youth behind
them.
"It's going to set the tone for our athletes
to do something positive other than playing
football," Hart said.
Anderson couldn't agree more with the
sentiment.
"My job is to be here for the Glades, not
just Glades Central," Anderson said.
"We want to motivate the children from
this entire area."

"This was blood, sweat and tears in this
project. I wanted to make sure this was
right."
Pahokee Mayor Wayne Whitaker and
Belle Glade Mayor.Steve Wilson were among
those tapped to be guest speakers.


Wilson was overjoyed about the success-
ful completion of this all-important facility.
"We made it," Wilson said.
"Any success for Pahokee is a success for
Belle Glade. We want to congratulate you on
behalf of the city of Belle Glade. It just shows
that we're not accepting anything; we're ac-
cepting the right thing."
Whitaker is proud of the positive recogni-
tion that Pahokee has gotten in terms of the
new stadium.
"If you put out as many professional foot-


ball players as Pahokee does, then you can't
help but recognize our town," Whitaker
said.
Jones hopes that when Boldin gets a
chance to come visit Pahokee again - the
honoree is currently in training for his sev-
enth season with the Arizona Cardinals -
he'll like it as much he does.
"When we (W.G. Mills Construction)
move, we move with a purpose," Jones
said.
Now that the construction is done,


Jones will be looking forward to Pahokee's
new football season, which begins tomor-
row night with the Blue-White scrimmage
game.
That will be followed by the first-ever
regular season contest against Atlantic next
Friday (Sep. 4).
"It's damn well time," Jones said to the
Pahokee faithful.
"You deserve it."
