All ready for Fourth of July: Pahokee to celebrate


The Pahokee Flower Shop salutes the
Fourth of July.


nation on celebrating its


Fireworks display in Pahokee


At least 5,000 people
expected to attend

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - For the city's an-
nual Fourth of July event, most
people who attend remember
just the fireworks display.
Just two years ago, that was
the only thing going on in this
close-knit community.
But Larry Wright expects this
year's celebration, called the 'I
Love Pahokee Day,' to be the best
it's ever been.
According to Wright, there
have never been two separate car


shows in Pahokee.
Nor has there ever been- a
soccer tournament or a fishing
tournament for the Fourth of July
weekend.
Fishing tournament
Originally, Pahokee's second
fishing tournament was sup-
posed to be on Saturday.
But it got pushed up two days
due to the fact that Pyro Technic,
the company who's responsible
for the fireworks display this year,
will be at the city's marina pier
the whole day to set up shop.
That's fine with Wright, even
though he won't be at this morn-
ing's event since he has to work


his day job at the Pahokee Flower
Shop.
The move was reportedly
made about two weeks ago,
Wright said.
"It will make things less hectic
for all of us," he said.
Last month, a host of young-
sters and senior citizens enjoyed
the inaugural tournament, with
the seniors passing on some
knowledge to the younger gen-
eration.
An estimated 25 children
competed in last month's tourna-
ment.
Today's turnout, however, is
expected to swell to about 100

community for its support

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida

incurred for the trip.
Glades Central, who'll be representing
the Miami Dolphins in the NFL's sixth annual

thers, Redskins, Rams, Cardinals, Falcons
High school players will be represented
for each of the 16 teams, which will report-
edly play in a round-robin format on July 10
- day one.
On Day Two (July 11), the 16 teams will
reportedly be seeded to play in a single elim-
ination playoff format.

nations, but we're soliciting your prayers as
well," Moreland says to the area.
"Please continue to pray that each of us
will continue to grow and become role mod-
els for other young men coming up behind
us," he continued.
"With all the tragedy that has happened
to some of our fellow teammates and friends
we are determined to make a difference."

Fireworks Safety

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of-
fice is urging Palm Beach County resi-
dents to think about safety as they make
plans to celebrate the "Fourth of July."
Every year thousands of people are
killed or. critically injured by fireworks,
and more than half of those are children.
Fireworks can result in severe burns, scars
and disfigurement that can last a lifetime.
"For that reason, FIREWORKS ARE ILLE-
GAL TO USE WITHOUT A PERMIT."
Some of the illegal fireworks prohib-
ited for normal resale are as follows:
* Common bottle rockets
* Firecrackers (rolls)
* Standard fireworks
* M80's with mortar
" M80's
* Projectile fireworks
* Launchable rockets with stands
(The above listed items are only a few
samples commonly purchased by people
that are prohibited for sale.)
WARNING:
YOU SHOULD NOT SIGN "WAIV-
ERS" in order to purchase fireworks. A
"waiver" will not clear you of responsibil-
ity should you be caught using illegal fire-
works. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office will be enforcing the use of illegal
fireworks. Using fireworks illegally is a
first degree misdemeanor punishable by
up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
If you are using "legal" sparklers, nov-
elties and trick noisemakers there is still
a risk of injury. When. lit, some sparklers
can reach temperatures between 1,300
and 1,800 degrees, which is at least 200
degrees hotter than a standard butane
lighter.
Follow these precautions to celebrate
safely:
* Use sparklers and other "legal" nov-
elties on a flat, hard surface. Do not light
them on grass.
* Use sparklers in an open area. Keep
children and pets at least 30 feet away
from all ignited fireworks. Also keep in
mind that livestock such as horses, cows,
etc. can also be frightened by fireworks.
* Light only one item at a time and
never attempt to re-light a dud. '
* Don't purchase or use any un-
wrapped items or items that may have
been tampered with.
* Keep a fire extinguisher or water
hose on hand for emergencies.
Remember: "IF IT LAUNCHES OR EX-
PLODES, IT IS OFF LIMITS."

Lightning can kill, avoid


the strike!


By Patricia
Dobbins
Millions of
lightning flashes
happen each
year and because
lightning usu-
ally claims one
or two victims at
a time and does
not usually cause
mass destruction
of property, it's
not considered as a "high-risk" to some
people.
Lightning has killed over 60 people in
the last few years!
Did you know that lightning can strike
as far as 10 miles from the area where it's
raining?
That's about the same distance that you
can hear thunder.
So if you can hear the thunder, you are
within striking distance!
Most lightning deaths or injuries hap-
pen in the summer.
School is out for summer, so take time


now to educate your family on lightning
safety! "When lightning roars - go in-
doors!"
There are some indoor dangers to re-
member as well.
Stay off of corded phones and comput-
ers during lightning.
If a person is struck by lightning, please
call 911 and get medical care immediately.
Heart irregularities, cardiac arrest, nerve
damage and burns are common when
someone gets struck by lightning.
However, with proper treatment, includ-
ing CPR if necessary, most victims survive a
lightning strike.
You are in no danger helping a lightning
victim.
The charge will not affect you.
Please stay safe this summer and re-
member: "When Lightning Roars, Go In-
doors!"

SFWMD Partners with Pahokee for Environmental Enhancement


Project to enhance efforts
to restore environment,
reopen waterway and boost
Glades economy

West Palm Beach, FL - The South Florida
Water Management District (SFWMD) Gov-
erning Board on Thursday approved funds
to assist the City of Pahokee in reopening
part of the vital Okeechobee Waterway,
restoring more than 100 acres of Lake
Okeechobee's shoreline habitat, enhancing
storm protection and stimulating the econ-
omy in the Glades region with eco-tourism
opportunities.
"I applaud all parties involved in this
restoration project as it benefits not only
the environment, but fellow Floridians and
our economy," said Governor Charlie Crist.
"This restoration is a major gain for Florida
and Palm Beach County."
SThe District Governing Board voted to in-
vest $3 million to install 90,000 cubic yards
of riprap - large rocks - to protect 10,000
linear feet of the lake's southeastern shore.
The work is among the first steps neces-
sary to begin dredging to restore a portion
of the Okeechobee Waterway, a 154-mile
marine route connecting Florida's east and
west coasts via Lake Okeechobee. Accord-
ing to the Florida Inland Navigation District
(FIND), the Okeechobee Waterway pro-
vides for $55 million per year (1999 dollars)
in National Economic Impact.


"The City of Pahokee's effort will provide
an array of ecological benefits to the lake it-
self and has tremendous potential to attract
boaters and outdoor enthusiasts alike to
the Glades region," said SFWMD Governing
Board member Patrick J. Rooney Jr. "Merg-
ing restoration with economic stimulus will
provide significant benefits for residents in
the City of Pahokee and the Glades region
as well as the environment."
Route 2, known as the "Rim Route,"
connecting Clewiston to Port Mayaca, has
been subject to navigation restrictions
because of shoaling caused by Hurricane
Wilma filling the channel with sediment
and debris in 2005. The District"s support
of the initial riprap work lays the founda-
tion for building an upland shelf along the
eastern shore that would facilitate a more
gradual shoreline, enhance storm protec-
tion and create wildlife habitat areas. The
riprap project, which has already received
the necessary state and federal permits,
also provides storage capacity to sequester
more than 300,000 cubic yards of dredged
material.
Once dredging is complete, the City of
Pahokee plans to construct a series of eco-
islands, providing for economic benefits by
creating construction jobs and eco-tourism
and recreational opportunities.
"On behalf of the City of Pahokee and
the City Commission, I would like to extend
our thanks to the South Florida Water Man-
agement District for its support on this vital
project, which will create immense ben-


efits for our residents, our environment and
our economy," said Pahokee Mayor Wayne
Whitaker. "These types of partnerships al-
low ambitious projects like this waterway
and lake restoration to become reality."
Key benefits of the phased project in-
clude:
Reopening of Route 2 of the Okeecho-
bee Waterway. Providing a natural mecha-
nism to filter phosphorus and to retain sus-


pended solids without removing material
from Lake Okeechobee or destroying up-
land areas outside the lake's edge.
Filtering and removing suspended solids
from the lake.
Enhancing storm protection.
Providing for safer navigation.
Creating recreational opportunities.
Re-establishing native eco-island sys-
tems.

Glades area Lions Club honors foundation


Pam Bergsma: 'Joey's
Message' embraced by Belle
Glade

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE - Proper eye care is widely
considered a crucial element in a person's
life.
But studies show that 1 in every 700 ba-
bies suffer from eye problems, which pres-
ent a wide range of consequences.
Pam Bergsma knows this all too well, as
her grandson, Joey, suffered from a rare eye
disease several years ago.
Born on July 5, 1997, Joey was diagnosed
by doctors with retinoblastoma, considered
by doctors as a rapidly developing cancer
which develops in the cells of a person's
retina. The retina is known as the light de-
tecting tissue of the eye.
Joey's life was tragically cut short in 2000
at just two years old as a result of the eye
disease, which studies reveal that it's 'very
treatable.'
An advocate for retinoblastoma aware-
ness, Joey's life has been chronicled by the
Associated Press and the national media.
'Joey's Story', as coined by Bergsma, has
received international attention over the past
few years, including an Emmy Award for
Newschannel 5-WPTV (West Palm Beach).
On Tuesday, June 24, the Belle Glade Li-
ons Club presented Bergsma with a special
award and a $500 check to further her ef-


forts in retinoblastoma awareness.
"All children deserve to have the best
sight possible when they start school and
throughout their lifetime," Bergsma said
adamantly.
"What happened to Joey should never
happen to a child in the United States of
America."
Bergsma said that Joey's life may have
been cut short by a health care practice
that she claims is often ignored by doctors
today.
To see whether or not an infant's eyes are
red, an optometrist is reportedly supposed
to make the baby room pitch dark and take
about 15 seconds to check the eyes out.
Bergsma believes that it didn't happen in
Joey's case when he was a infant 12 years
ago.
"If you don't take the time to look, you
will not detect," Bersma said.
"It's like taking a few seconds to check
the heart with a stethoscope."
Since Joey's tragic death nine years ago,
Belle Glade has been Bergsma's biggest
supporter of any municipality in the entire
state.
Even Jessica Bair, a Belle Glade resident
and Girl Scout, has gone out her way to
show Bergsma support for the cause.
Last year, Jessica received a Gold Award
for her work with The Joey Bergsma Retino-
blastoma Awareness Foundation.
The awareness foundation, which was
launched not long after Joey's death, has
been instrumental in saving the sight and
lives of many children throughout the nation


and beyond.
What bothers Bergsma is that studies
have recently revealed 1 in 9 babies display-
ing an eye concern - way too many, accord-
ing to Bersma.
"The only problem we have here is that
we're not looking," Bersma said.
"We need to do whatever it takes to
make sure these newborns suffer from eye
problems."
As Bergsma continues to push her initia-
tive throughout the nation and the world,
she knows she can count on Belle Glade to
keep pushing her.
And that's a breath of fresh air for Bergs-


ma, who goes out her way to recognize the
city for embracing 'Joey's Message.'
"Good things will continue to happen in
Belle Glade," Bergsma said, as she thanked
the Lions Club for its contributions.
"This will help me tremendously to con-
tinue saving the sight and lives of our chil-
dren."

ma Retinoblastoma Awareness Foundation,

Walk in the Past: The Red Stick War 1813-1814


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Brilliant rays of light turned the morning
sky a pale blue, before falling earthward in
glistening waves of heat likened to wisps
of smoky haze. The land warmed and by
noon was smoldering in heat that shriveled
tree foliage and forced plants to droop in fi-
nal submission to the ball of fire that bristled
in the heavens above.
A fort built with wooden ramparts along
the outer fringes of the woodlands, ap-
peared as a mirage in the simmering heat.
Tall, pine logs that formed the fort's walled
parameters sweated droplets of oozing tur-
pentine as the August day grew hotter.
Inside the sweltering, fort walls, soldiers
and settlers sought relief from the heat in
the shady shadows that reflected across the
dusty grounds. The soldier's alertness and
the settler's fears languished in the cool,
soothing shades.
Lifeless, brown grasses moved in the mo-
tionless, hot air like ripples on the water's
surface when a large predatory fish lurks
beneath. Hundreds of Creek warriors with
hideous, painted faces snaked their way
through the grasses unnoticed.
A cry went up when the Indians rushed
the gates, but it was too late. Men, women
and children ran to escape the deadly mad-
ness, but they were trapped. No quarter was
given as hundreds of women and children
were atrociously murdered.
Cries for mercy went unheard as human
beings became living torches to the fiend-
ish hordes that sought vengeance. Evening
shadows fell across the bodies of hundreds,
whose tortured features no longer appeared
human.
This fictitious story reflects the true,
dreadful massacre that occurred at Ft. Mims
during the Creek Civil War. Men, women
and children of Creek, White and Mixed
Bloods, died terrible deaths at the hands of
the Creek Red Sticks.
It is time to take "A Walk in The Past"
and read about the Creek Civil War and the
events that shaped the future of the Semi-
noles in Florida.
The United States declared war on Eng-
land in 1812, based on unresolved grievanc-
es: (1) England's Royal Navy was stopping
American ships and impressing seamen
that claimed American citizenship. (2) Eng-
land and France were at war, so all neutral
countries, including the United States were
forbidden by England to trade with France.
(3) England was supplying Indian Nations in
America with military arms and encourag-
ing them to be hostile.
America's war with England in 1812,
came at a time when rumors of dissent were
brewing in the Creek Confederacy. The Up-
per Creeks living in west Georgia and Ala-
bama opposed the encroachment of white
settlers and white culture, while many of the
Lower Creeks living in Central Georgia were
adapting to the white culture and assimilat-.
ing.
The towns within the Creek Confedera-
cy were divided into two groups called the
White and Red. The White or "peace" towns
were involved in civil affairs; while the Red
or "war" towns were dominate in military


Illustration sub
In the early 1800s, the Red Stick and White Stick Indians were marching to sep

matters. Politically these towns could switch
from red to white or vice versa.
According to Creek tradition, the White
towns dominated the Confederacy until the
American Revolution. The Red towns domi-
nated from the American Revolution until
the Civil War period.
Upper Creeks became known as the Red
Sticks by settlers because they embraced na-
tive identities and resisted white encroach-
ment, while Lower Creeks were called the
White Sticks by settlers because they advo-
cated peace and were assimilating into the
white culture.
The Shawnee chief, Tecumseh visited
the five civilized nations (Creeks, Cherokee,
Chickasaw, Choctaw and Seminole) in 1811,
but succeeded in gaining support from only
the Creek Red Sticks. The Red Sticks sup-
ported Tecumseh's Native American beliefs
and later became part of his Indian Confed-
eracy in 1813.
The Red Stick and White Stick Indians
were marching to totally, separate ideolo-
gies, which would eventually embroil the
Creek people into a devastating Civil War.
This impending struggle was likened to a
smoking gun before the War of 1812, and
a loaded gun afterward. The War of 1812,
would quicken the Creek Civil War because
the Red Sticks now had a sympathetic and
powerful ally called England.
In 1813, seven Red Sticks returning from
Detroit killed two families of white settlers
on the Ohio River. The American Indian
Agent, Benjamen Hawkins, demanded that
the Indians be turned over to American of-
ficials for trial. The White Stick's leaders
bypassed the Americans and executed the
guilty Red Sticks. The hostilities between the
Red Sticks and White Sticks were such that
this incident sparked the Creek Civil War.
The Creek Civil War became a blood bath
as Indians in the Creek Confederacy took'
different sides. The Choctaws, Chickasaws,
and Cherokees were outside the Creek Con-
federacy and supported the Lower Creeks,
while other Muskogee speaking and non
speaking Muskogee Indians sided indepen-


dently.
In 1813, a Tallassee called Peter Mc-
Queen and a large party of Red Sticks trav-
eled to Pensacola, Florida to buy or demand
munitions. Some historians suggest that
four hundred dollars for the munitions came
from the British as a gift, which if true, would
leave one to ponder the real motives of the
British and Red Sticks.
The Spanish at Pensacola gave them small
amounts of ball and powder. They returned
to the forest and sent another group of war-
riors, who purchased additional powder and
ball. This went on until the Indians had five
horses loaded with ball and powder.
Americans stationed at Fort Mims got
wind of McQueen's purchases and were
fearful the Indians were preparing for war. A
detachment of soldiers under Colonel Caller
and Captain Dixon Bailey were sent to inter-
cept the Red Sticks. They ambushed the In-
dians as they were bedding down on Burnt
Corn Creek for the night.
The Red Sticks scattered and the Ameri-
cans started looting the Indian's supplies.
McQueen rallied the Red Sticks and drove
off the looting soldiers, regaining the ball
and powder. This skirmish would become
know as the Battle of Burnt Corn.
The Red Sticks considered the American
attack and act of war. The Red Sticks unoffi-
cially declared war on the United States and
prepared for an attack on Fort Mims. The
Red Stick leaders, McQueen and William
Weatherford, directed a surprise attack on
the fort a month later.
Many of the fort occupants were Creeks
and mixed blood Creeks that fled to the fort
when the Creek Civil War started. Some his-
torians think this large group of White Sticks

eous deaths.

whom the Indians car-
ried off as spoils of war.
The United States de-
clared war on the Red Sticks after the mas-
sacre at Fort Mims.
The Indian attacks spread to other forts
and soon an epidemic of panicking settlers
and White Sticks were fleeing across the
frontier to safety. The United States armies
were at war with the British and the Indian
forces under Tecumseh in the north, so a
volunteer army was called up in the South.
We could learn from our nation's past by
examining one's conscience and stripping
it of all allegiance to politics, race, culture,
and greed, so that only the bare, minimal
facts remain for an honest decision. How-
ever, it is unfortunate that we never seem to
learn. Even now, hindsight dispels the mud-
died waters of our own, selfish decisions,
revealing crystal, clear paths we failed to
follow.

HENDRY REGIONAL

MEDICAL CENTER
"Where It'sAlflAout getting Better"

Hendry Regional Medical Center
to start Emergency Room Medical Screening

Hendry Regional Medical Center (HRMC) is implementing a new medical screening
process in the emergency room, designed to ensure that all of its ER patients receive
quality care in the appropriate healthcare setting.

Beginning July 1, 2009, all patients who visit the HRMC emergency room will be
screened to identify their level and nature of emergency. (This medical screening
process would NOT apply to pregnant women who are in labor, or those individuals
who have life-threatening conditions or surgical emergencies.)

Once patients have been through the screening process, those with less serious
conditions (as identified by the emergency room physician) will be given a
Community Resource Referral Guide to provide them with more suitable out-patient
healthcare facilities, based upon their needs and preferences. These individuals will
also be given the choice of remaining in the emergency room, regardless of the level
and nature of their emergency; however, HRMC will require that payment
be rendered, prior to the continuation of ER services.

Craig Cudworth, the CEO of the hospital, is happy to see the implementation of this
system, but stated, "While this program will reduce the patient's cost of care
and alleviate emergency room overcrowding and long waits, it will take some time
to educate this new medical screening process to the many ER patients that we see on
a day-to-day basis."

Despite challenges, citrus a major economic engine


Citrus growers continue to face many
challenges, however Florida's signature
crop remains a powerful economic engine
that supports dozens of rural communities
across the state, according to the head of
Florida's largest citrus trade organization.
Michael W. Sparks, executive VP/CEO of
Florida Citrus Mutual, delivered his "State of
the Florida Citrus Industry" address today
and used the speech to emphasize the im-
portance of citrus, especially in tough eco-
nomic times.
"Many towns in Florida's interior depend
on citrus and with the overall economy suf-
fering, our crop - and agriculture in general
- becomes even more important," Sparks
said.
"To paraphrase Mark Twain 'rumors of
the citrus industry's decline have been great-
ly exaggerated.'"
Sparks gave the address as part of the
Florida Citrus Industry Annual Conference
which takes place in June and serves as a
venue for the industry to discuss issues im-
pacting Florida citrus.
More than 600 people attended the event


this year at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point
Resort and Spa in Bonita Springs.
While praising the resiliency of Florida
citrus, Sparks acknowledged that disease
pressure, high inventories and declining
OJ consumption are "definitely putting the
squeeze on growers."
"We are facing some immense challeng-
es," Sparks said.
"The spread of citrus greening, the most
serious citrus disease on the planet, is put-
ting our $9.3 billion industry and the 76,000
jobs it creates at risk."
Citrus greening is a bacterial disease that
kills trees.
All 32 Florida counties that contain com-
mercial citrus production now have green-
ing.
The Florida citrus industry is now mount-
ing a multi-million dollar research effort to
find short and long-term solution to the dis-
ease.
Sparks sounded an optimistic tone.
"History has proven that the Florida cit-
rus industry can overcome and survive pests
and diseases, hurricanes and freezes," he


said.
"Citrus has been too good to the farm-
ing families of Florida to abandon. And with
all that's bad out there, growers are proud
to provide consumers with a wholesome,
great tasting and healthy product."
In other news, Florida Citrus Mutual con-
firmed its board members and officers for
the 2009-2010 season on June 24.
Fran Becker, vice president of fruit pro-
curement for Peace River Citrus Products,
Inc., Bradenton, was re-elected president of

season are: Vic Story of Lake Wales rep-
resenting the western area; Trey Smith, of
Vero Beach, representing the eastern area;
Raymond "Bo" Bentley, Jr. of Winter Haven
representing the northern area; and Mark
Wheeler of Lake Placid representing the
southern area.
Marty McKenna of Sebring was re-elect-
ed as secretary and Dennis Broadaway of

Sparks as executive vice president/CEO,

ber board of directors at the Annual Meeting.

Anticipate Fireworks
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Did you know that there is approximately
the same amount of gunpowder in a fire-
cracker as in a rifle shell?
But the firecracker is unfocused.
It just makes a big noise.
The rifle shell, on the other hand, focuses
that power in a specific direction and deliv-
ers an enormous punch.,
One makes a lot of noise.
The other gets results.
It's a matter of focus. It's a matter of
what's needed or what's desired.
We can be a firecracker Christian or a
rifle shot Christian.
One makes a lot of noise. The other gets
results.
The third option is to be a fireworks
Christian. Fireworks begin by focusing pow-
er to get them to a desired location and then
explode with all kinds of ways to catch peo-
ple's attention and amaze them in all kinds
of wonderful ways.
I still believe in the USA.
Something still happens to me when I
see people waving flags and when I hear pa-
triotic songs being sung.
Call me optimistic, but I still believe in
one nation under'God. In God I still trust.
And I still celebrate the Fourth of July and
anticipate fireworks as part of that celebra-
tion.
I want to tell you that I still anticipate fire-
works out of my faith as well.
There is too much to be done here in our
corner of God's world for us to quit taking
risks and stepping out on faith.
I don't want us to be slaves to the past,
afraid of the risk of what it may mean to be
in ministry in this community, in this nation,
and even in this world at this time.
I don't want us to be afraid to go forth
into the world with the authority that we re-
ceive from God.
You see, I still anticipate fireworks. I still
anticipate miracles. I still anticipate excite-
ment and enthusiasm, healing, and conver-
sion.
I expect fireworks to happen every time
God calls us and sends us out.
I expect my faith and my church to make
a difference in my world.
And I want you to expect it, too!
There is more that I can do. There is more
that you can do. There is more that you and I
can do together.
As we celebrate this month of our decla-
ration of independence as a country, I invite
you to renew your declaration of depen-
dence upon God.
I invite you to bring an offering of a hope,
a dream, a prayer, or perhaps an offering
of a vision you have and offer it at the altar
to the God who calls us and sends us, who


claims us and names us, and who fills our
minds with visions of liberty and justice and
possibilities that burst like fireworks in the
nighttimes of our journey through this life of
ours.
Anticipate fireworks.

The Declaration of
Dependence
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
On July 4th, 1776, there was signed in
the City of Philadelphia one of America's
historic documents: The Declaration of In-
dependence.
It marked the birth of this nation, which
under God was destined for world leader-
ship.
But what we often forget is that, in declar-
ing independence from an earthly power,
our forefathers made a forthright declaration
of dependence upon Almighty God!
The closing words of this historic docu-
ment solemnly declares: "With a firm reli-
ance on the protection of Divine Providence,
we mutually pledge to each other, our lives,
our fortunes, and our sacred honor."
It is important that we recall this very
basic Declaration of Dependence, for in her
prosperity and power, and in her unique po-
sition of world leadership, America today is
showing signs of forgetting the God of our
Fathers, the God who gave this nation its
birth and present greatness.
We need to be reminded of a solemn
warning that God gave to another great na-
tion over 3,000 years ago, it might well refer
to modern America today.
"For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into
a good land, a land.... wherein thou shalt
eat bread without scarceness... (And) when
thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shall
.bless the Lord thy God for the good land
which He hath given thee. Beware that thou
forget not the Lord thy God:... lest when
thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built
goodly houses, and dwelt therein.., and thy
silver and thy gold is multiplied; then thine
heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord
thy God" (Deuteronomy 8:7-14).
Indeed, history has made it abundantly
clear not only in the lives of nations, but
also in lives of individuals, that those who
by their lives and actions declare their inde-
pendence from God, soon become slavishly
dependent upon the circumstances of life.
On the other hand, those who humbly
declared their dependence upon God have
been remarkably free and independent of
life's changing circumstances.
So, as .e think again of the birth of our
great nation, may we pray that our beloved
country might have a new birth of freedom,
not a freedom from God, which always leads
to license and ultimate slavery, but rather a
freedom built upon God and His command-


ments, apart from which any nation will
eventually perish.
We declare before God and our fellow
citizens our utter dependence upon our be-
loved Creator.
Without His air we could not breathe.
Without His provisions we could not eat
or be clothed or housed.
Without His grace and kindness we could
not live each day with the hope of eternal
life.
Without the blessed Savior we could
not grasp the abundant life in the here and
now.
The thought of being independent may
come to our minds when our bellies are full
and our bank account flush.
But there is not way to be genuinely in-
dependent while spinning at such a rapid
speed on.the old blue marble.
The very creative power of our Holy God
is what keeps our tiny planet in our orbit
around our tiny sun.
On our very best days, with our very best
hair, in our very best clothes, enjoying our
very best health, we are but struggling pil-
grims in the grip of God's mercy.
Our worth is worthless except in the
heart of a loving God.
We are creatures made in His likeness to
honor His Will.
This is our calling and great privilege.
Yet without His indulgence we would be
penniless and pitiable and pathetic persons
of carbon and mist.
. O yes, we declare for all to read these
words our dependence upon the Almighty.
He alone sustains, "Where can I go from
Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your Pres-
ence. (Psalm 139:7)

Independence Day: Our
capacity to be great people
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
With Independence Day this Saturday,
many people will be taking a "long week-
end."
I've heard that Americans work longer
hours than most peoples in the industrial-
ized world; no doubt we need them to recu-
perate and refresh.
We have been barraged by news about
our need for healthcare reform, the state of
the economy, the industries that have failed
or are significantly weakened, where we're
involved in wars, the concerns about what
other nations are doing and how it will affect
us, the list goes on and on.
It is too easy to forget what it is all about;
and forget that those who laid the founda-
tions for this country had similar, if not great-
er problems.
We fought for independence from an em-
pire that didn't want us to be independent;


we were populated with people that had
to flee from their homes to have any sem-
blance of freedom, we had to turn a rough
wilderness into a nation by "American inge-
nuity" and the basic ethic of honest labor
and honesty in society.
Today, it is easy to understand all of the
doubt and cynicism.
I've noted that, unfortunately, we often
ignore our history and where we've come
from; a people that faced challenges and
then surmounted them.
That's who we are and a part of why we
can claim to be a great people.
Our religious heritage is also a reminder
of our ability to overcome adversity; and we
often forget these days that it was an integral
part of the lives and thinking of our founding
fathers.
The Lord and His followers find them-
selves in an isolated place and there were
many followers (Mark 6:32ff).
They recognize they are in a "remote
place" (v. 35) and find themselves hungry.
There are only five loaves and a two fish
for five thousands, but it worked out to be
enough, with leftovers too.
In the wilderness and isolation, God had
provided; "They all ate and were satisfied (v.
42)."
Those who came to this wilderness and
isolation hungered for many things too.
They shared, kept faith, and then ate and
were satisfied too.
I had a classmate who was having a dif-
ficult time getting through seminary.
His family didn't like the winters of Chi-
cago, they were away from home, there
were financial problems, he had been out of
school a long time and getting into a routine
of studies was difficult.
He shared that "If it were easy, it wouldn't
mean anything!" and went on to have a very
successful ministry.
I've thought about that in other ways
too.
SI believe we're a great people because
we've been forged out of hardship and what
we have means something to the entire
world.
I've been in foreign countries and have
seen the peoples lined up at our embassies.
We take it all for granted.
In the isolation and struggle we have
been fed; it's a part of our strength, charac-
ter, gift from God.
We need to remember and hallow it.

India or.raq on a map, then we have
to wonder what they do know about

Camp
Continued From Page 1

day event hosted by current and former Mi-
ami Heat superstars Alonzo Mourning and
Dwayne Wade.
Held at the American Airlines Arena in
Miami, the kids will get to enjoy the culmi-
nation of the 13th annual celebration with
a block party, followed by an all-star basket-
ball game.
With 13 chaperones slated to accompany
the kids, it's a reward from Jackson and the
PBSO, who's doing its part to make sure that
those participating in the golf camp will have
a summer they'll never forget.
And the fun does not stop there.
The children do get a chance each week-
day to enjoy learning the game of golf on


Belle Glade's Sugar Cane Golf Course.
But the First Tee summer camp's sticking
point may come, perhaps, from a set of life
lessons that the campers seem to be grasp-
ing pretty.well.
Among the things learned so far, accord-
ing to Jackson, were the four R's, which the
kids can use towards excelling at the golf
course.
Those lessons are as follows:
Replay - think about what happened/
what you did
Relax - take a deep breath
Ready - think about what you need to
do the next time
Redo - try again or imagine how to do
it better
Some of the above life lessons can be
used in how to properly greet someone,
which include displaying a firm handshake,


speaking clearly and looking at a person in
the eye, to name just a few.
In addition, the youngsters are being
taught tips to have fun, which are being
patient (keep trying), positive (enjoy what
you're doing) and asking for help (you can
learn from others).
Many of these ideals are taught in the life
skills segment, which normally take place
right after lunchtime.
Following the all-important session, the
youngsters go on the course for about two
hours to apply what they've learned to the
golf game.
There, the kids are taught how to hold
a golf club, how to stand and prepare for a
proper swing, how to putt and what golf club
to use in a particular area of the course.
To top it off, the youngsters are learn-
ing how to obtain.a 'personal par', which


is designed to measure how each camper
performs on the golf course, at school and
at home.
"We're encouraging the kids to use these
skills wherever they go," Jackson said.
"The kids are knowing what it takes to
set goals in their lives," he continued.
"They're learning how to become re-
sponsible young adults."
The First Tee summer camp, which has
two two-week sessions, is held Monday
through Friday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The first two weeks were held from June
8-19, while the second two-week sessions
will begin on Monday, July 6 and conclude
on Friday, July 17.

Groove, visit the Internet at www.zsg.com.

kids, along with the seniors who'll be on
hand to provide an assist, if needed.
About $700 was reportedly raised for the
fishing tournament, which will cover tro-
phies, fishing gear and food for the young-
sters.
Trophies are expected to be handed out
shortly after the conclusion of the fishing
tournament.
"It was a big success the first time out,"
Wright said.
"I think we'll be shooting to do this on a
monthly basis for the rest of the summer."
The tournament, to be held at the Lake
Okeechobee Outpost Marina, will last from
8 a.m. to 1 p.m. today.


Lovin' the Glades
The celebration theme was originally
called I Love Pahokee Day.
With the concept being stemmed from
a recent citizens' advisory board meeting, it
was later changed to 'Lovin' the Glades.'
This happened, Wright said, because
board members agreed to combine I Love
Pahokee Day - which was not originally
scheduled for the Fourth of July - and the
Fourth into one big event.
Wright and the advisory board had the
neighboring communities of Belle Glade
and South Bay in mind.
"We think that the three towns (Belle
Glade, Pahokee and South Bay) are too small
for us to have competing events, so this will
be our one big event for the year."
"We are calling it 'Lovin' The Glades' be-
cause we want the entire Glades community
to get involved," Wright said, as he's expect-


ing at least 5,000 people to take part in this
weekend's celebration.
Barring a weather-related setback, a soc-
cer tournament is scheduled for all of Sat-
urday at the Pahokee Recreational Center's
field.
Not. far from the recreational center will
be a Classic Car Show and Tune Car Show.
The event, to be held at the Old Elks
Lodge on East Main Street, will feature at
least 14 antique and classic cars.
That includes a shiny red pickup truck
owned by Pahokee Mayor Wayne Whitaker,
which Wright called 'a hit' last December, as
it took a ride downtown during the Light Up
Pahokee celebration.
Emilio Perez, a local business owner in
the city, donated $600 of his own money for
the event.
The grand prize winner will receive $300
for the best car entry, while second and third


place will net entrants $200 and $100, re-
spectively.
The car show is scheduled to last from
1 - 7 p.m.
At sunset, the fireworks display, which
cost the city about $10,000 to have, will take
center stage at the marina.
The Pyro Technic production is expected
to last for 15 minutes, thus culminating the
series of events assembled for the Fourth.
"We expect our citizens to stay home
more 'how, with the rise of gas prices and
the way the economy is right now," Wright
said.
"Now, we're going to do what we can to
offer the residents the best Pahokee has to
offer."

Fourth of July celebration, please call Larry
Wright at 985-3389.
