Club 21


shooting


leaves one


injured
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - Antony Smith,
a 24-year-old man, celebrated part
of his Fourth of July weekend at
Club 21. Unfortunately for him, the
party didn't last too long. Smith,
of 115 N. Elm St. in Pahokee, was
reportedly shot in his upper back/
right shoulder area during the early
morning hours of July 5.
Authorities from the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO) dis-
covered that Smith and a group of
his friends got into an altercation
with a host of unknown individu-
als. The victim was reportedly shot,
reportedly, when he and his friends
became involved in another fight as
the melee was taken to the club's
parking lot area.
At this time, it's not known who
the suspect is in the shooting. It's
also not clear what the motive was
to the incident. What is known,
however, is that the victim was
transported to Glades General Hos-
pital for his injuries. He was later
treated and released from the hos-
pital.
The Palm Beach County Violent
Crimes Task Force is conducting
an investigation on the Club 21
shooting at this time/The incident
reportedly took place at 1:04 a.m.
Anyone who has pertinent in-
formation leading up to an appre-
hension of a potential suspect is
asked to call 688-4000. You could
also contact Crime Stoppers at
1-800-458-TIPS.

Pahokee Blue Devils will participate



in upcoming Nike 7-on-7 competition


Tournament will be held
from July 15-17 in
Beaverton, Ore.

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - The Pahokee Blue Devils will
be taking their skills center stage to Oregon
next week.
With this year's Nike 70N national 7-on-7
competition to be held from July 15-17 in
Beaverton, Ore., Pahokee knows what's on
the line.
As a matter of fact, they actually have
some unfinished business to take care of.
After last year's Nike 70N regional tour
nament, which ended in a 22-21 loss to
Miami-Booker T. Washington on July 12,
2008, the Blue Devils were thoroughly disap-
pointed.
According to published reports, Pahokee
and Booker T. Washington were embroiled
in a melee on that day, thus disqualifying
both teams from last year's national cham-
pionship.
The brawl reportedly ended with a knee
injury to Booker T. Washington head coach
Earl Tillman.
Both teams later declined their invitations
to compete in last year's adidas 7-or-7 na-
tional championship.
Booker T. Washington won the adidas
7-on-7 title game, while Pahokee was the
runner-up.
With all that being said, Pahokee head
coach Blaze Thompson simply wants to put
it behind him and move on.
"We don't back down on a challenge,
but our goal is to win on the field and play
hard between the whistles and with integ-
rity," Thompson said.
"We're not going to dwell on the nega-
tive, but we know that everyone's gunning
for us."
That includes Miami-Northwestern, one
of eight teams that will be in competition
with Pahokee at this year's Nike 70N tour-
nament.
Despite Pahokee's five Class 2B state
championships in the past six years, in addi-
tion to the adidas 7-on-7 national champion-
ship and a No. 6 USA Today final national
ranking two years ago, Thompson believes
his team still doesn't get much respect out-
side of Palm Beach County.
And that perception alone is what makes
Thompson stop just short of being irate.
"Teams think that we don't belong in
the rational rankings because we're a small
school," Thompson said.
"But we know that we've earned the
right to be talked about when it comes to
being in the conversation of the elite teams
in the nation." .
Here's a list of the Pahokee players who'll
be flying to Oregon next week:
Zachary Allen
Rantavious Atkins

Pahokee Blue Devils junior quarterback Emmanuel Perez will be one of 20 play-
ers who'll be flying to Oregon on Wednesday, July 15.

Dennis Hall
Othniel Harvey
Corey Hill
De'Joshua Johnson
Merill Noel
Jacquay Perdue
Emmanuel Perez
Fred Pickett
Earnquavion Robinson
Norris White
Shaquille White
Kaalum Williams
Nathan Wood
Pahokee will have an opportunity to win
its second 7-on-7 national championship in
three years.
With the title, it likely won't be a surprise
if the Blue Devils are nationally ranked when
the 2009 season officially begins.
"We're gonna compete at the highest lev-
el and have fun out there," Pahokee wideout


Dennis Hhll said.
"We're not just coming to compete, but
we're, gonna take the trophy home back to
Pahokee."
Thompson couldn't agree more with
Hall's statement.
"We get our motivation from people
doubting us," Thompson said.
"Anybody can get it."
Notes: There is no regional Nike 70N
competition this year, according to Thomp-
son.
Nike, the official sponsor of the Pahokee
Blue Devils, is reportedly paying all of the
expenses that come with this cross-country
trip.

HRMC relocates its


outpatient registration

F.^ttl . :~ I

The hospital's outpatient registration has been moved to make room for a
planned emergency room.


By Glenda Wilson
Hendry Regional Medical Center has re-
located its Outpatient Registration Depart-
ment. The outpatient registration area is
now located at the front entrance of the hos-
pital (first door on the left).
Hospital administration has been plan-
ning this move for some time. With the
construction of the new emergency room

right around the corner, volume in this de-
partment, which was formally located near
the back of the hospital, would have been
far too congested. According to Craig Cud-
worth, CEO of Hendry Regional, "The move
also greatly improves service and conve-
nience to the patient. The lobby provides
a larger seating area, and patients can now
park in the front of the hospital."-

Training program funded


for Glades General


BELLE GLADE - Workforce Alliance,
who earlier in the year awarded Glades
General Hospital a $27,500 grant for work-
force training, is pleased to announce that
44 nursing staff have completed the pro-
gram and have been awarded advanced
certifications.
The training program was designed to
help the nursing staff prepare for the use
of greater technology when the hospital
transitions into its modern new facility, the
Lakeside Medical Center, later this year.
Workforce Alliance's Employed Worker
Training Program is a funding source that
is available to eligible businesses seeking
to improve the skills and qualifications of
their current employees.
The recent program with Glades Gen-
eral Hospital provided training for 21 staff
members to earn Healthcare Certification
Level One and for 21 additional staff to at-
tain Level Two Certification.
Another four employees completed
training to become on-staff training profes-
sionals.
As a result of the training, the participat-
ing employees increased their skills and
many became eligible for higher level posi-


tions.
Workforce Alliance's total Employed
Worker Training program during the past
fiscal year awarded $546,994 in training
grants to a total of nineteen Palm Beach
County employers.
This resulted in job-related training for
over 450 employees and an overall eco-
nomic investment in the County of over
$1.8 million, including the $1.3 million in
contributions made by the businesses.
Businesses seeking information on the
Employed Worker Training program and
how it may benefit their business may con-
tact Gerry Genovese, Director of Business
Services at Workforce Alliance, 561-340-
1061, ext. 2211.
Workforce Alliance is the organization
chartered by the State of Florida to devel-
op, create and retain a quality workforce
system in Palm Beach County.

nomic growth in the County, Workforce
Alliance offers its professional services, in-
cluding access to local employment infor-
mation, to all employers and job seekers in
the County.

A Walk in the Past: The Battle of Horseshoe Bend


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The ragged lines of marching Tennes-
see volunteers gripped their rifles tightly as
cold fear coiled around their bodies and
squeezed until beads of perspiration flowed
freely. Brown, stoic faced comrades from the
Creek and Cherokee Nations trotted past to
position themselves along the left and right
flanks of the volunteer's advancing lines, so
the enemy would have no escape route.
A single shot echoed into thousands as
fire and smoke belched from the blazing
barrels of friend and foe. Hours later the
triumphing voices of the American victors
merged with the despairing cries of the van-
quished Red Sticks.
This fictitious story reflects the Battle of
Horseshoe Bend that broke the resistance of
the Red Sticks. It is time to "Take a Walk in
The Past" and read about the final hours of
the Creek Red Sticks.
The Creek Civil War began in the Creek
Confederacy, which was divided into two
factions, the Red Sticks and the White Sticks.
Red Sticks favored war and Native Ameri-
canism, void of white encroachment and
culture. White Sticks favored integrating into
the white culture on peaceful terms. These
ideologies were birthed and nurtured by
white intrusion on Creek lands.
The friction caused by these two ideolo-
gies led to a vicious war that was escalated
when Red Sticks attacked Ft. Mims in 1813,
and massacred most of the forts inhabitants.
Many of the settlers that died at Ft. Mims
were Creek White Sticks, who had sought
refuge in the fort.
The massacre sent a wave of fear through
the frontier and the Southeast. White settlers
and Creek White Sticks fled their homes on
the frontier to seek shelter in forts and safer
territories. The United States reacted to the
Ft. Mims massacre by declaring war on the
Red Sticks.
The states and territories in the Southeast
requested U.S. Army troops, but there were'
few to spare because the United States was
engaged in a war with England. The South-
east was forced to raise an independent
army of volunteers to deal with its chilling
emergency.
Volunteer militias were called up in the
Southeast that comprised:
* The Georgia Territory, which estab-
lished a line of forts along its western bor-
ders to act as a buffer and a militia army with
over 20,000 men, plus 2,000 regular troops
and 400 friendly Creeks.
* The Mississippi Territory that
formed a small militia of 1,000 men, which,
included infantry, local militia and Choctaw
Indians.
* The state of Tennessee pulled an
army of 2,500 volunteers from west Tennes-
see and placed it under the command of
Colonel Andrew Jackson. Another volunteer
army of 2,500 was formed in east Tennessee
and placed under the command of Major
General William Cocke.
* Indian Agent, Benjamin Hawkens,
organized friendly Creeks under the com-
mand of Major William Mclntosh. The
Cherokee Nation sent 200 Cherokees under
the command of Major Ridge. These com-


bined Indian armies fought under white mi-
litias and are noted for their services in the
Tennessee militia that was commanded by
Colonel Andrew Jackson.
The Southeast now had ample manpow-
er to crush the Red Sticks, whose numbers
historians believe never exceeded 4,000.
However, the numerous American armies
were under separate commanders from dif-
ferent territories that operated independent-
ly of one another. This problem weakened
the combat effectiveness of the American's
superior forces.
The American strategy-was to attack the
Red Sticks' scared Holy Ground where the
larger populations of Red Sticks lived. The
plan's logistics required forts, roads and
supply lines because the Red Sticks' main
villages were deep within the Alabama wil-
derness
These logistical demands were chal-
lenging to the American commanders, but
the most demanding task they faced was
time. Time was of essence because the
armies consisted mainly of volunteer militia,
whose enlistments were from two to three
months.
Armies of volunteers simply melted away
at the end of their 60 or 90 day service, leav-
ing bewildered commanders with ghost
armies.
Colonel Jackson became a very frustrated
commander in the early months of the Creek
War, when most of his west Tennessee mi-
litia returned home after their 90-day enlist-
ment ended. His army of several thousand
was reduced to a mere 103 soldiers, which
stalled his military objectives until additional
troops could be brought in. The east Tennes-
see militia fared worst when all of William
Cocke's army went home.
The west and east Tennessee militias
were combined under Jackson and became
the main military force in the Creek War.
Jackson resolved the volunteer enlistment
problem by extending the period from three
months to six months. He then began his
campaign against the Red Sticks in earnest,
building roads and forts as he marched to
the heart of Upper Creek homeland.
Numerous engagements and battles
were fought, but the decisive battle that
ended Red Stick resistance was the "Battle
of Horseshoe Bend." Jackson's force num-
bered 3,000 troops and 600 Cherokee and
Lower Creek allies. The Red Sticks were at-
tacked in the center.by the Tennessee militia
and hit on the left and right flanks by Indian
allies. The Red Sticks took terrible losses.
The war cost the Red Sticks dearly in lives
and land. The Treaty of Fort Jackson forced
the Indians to cede 23 million acres to the.
United States. Most of this land would later
become the state of Alabama. Some of the
lands belonging to the Cherokees and other
Indians that aided the Americans were in-
cluded in the treaty.
Davy Crockett, the legendary figure who
is remembered for his heroic death at the
Alamo, volunteered as a scout for the Ten-
nessee militia during the Creek War. During
his enlistment, he located a large Red Stick
village and reported the information to Jack-
son's staff. Approximately 500 soldiers were
dispatched to the village, which was a three-
day trip. They attacked the village savagely


and vengefully gave no quarter.
The army carried few supplies on their
three-day march and ran out of provisions.
They were forced to forage for food in the
destroyed Indian village.
Potatoes were found stored in a cellar be-
neath below a large cabin, where many of
the Indians had made a last stand. The cabin
had been set on fire, and many of the Indi-
ans burned in the raging flames. Fat from the
burning bodies melted and collected on the
potatoes. The soldiers were forced to eat the
potatoes or starve.
Davy Crockett was angered by soldiers'
brutal behavior and reported their actions.
He became so disgusted with the barbaric


actions of the army's soldiery that he re-
signed and went home.
Crockett never forgave Jackson for
the actions of his armies. In Congress, he
fought the Jackson administration and voted
against the Indian Removal Act. Crockett lost
his seat in Congress in 1831 because he had
angered Jackson.
He later won again in 1833 and said, "I
bark at no man's bid. I will never come and
go, and fetch and carry, at the whistle of the
great man in the White House no matter
who he is."
There will be more Tall Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
Andrew Jackson invades Spanish Florida.

Obama versus Washington
and Lincoln
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Today when we continue to hear the pres-
ent administration talk about "Change" and
with the "stimulus package" and "bail-outs"
I would like to make a few observations.
While the President lauds Presidents
Washington and Lincoln, in practice he
completely disagrees with their philosophies
that are on record.
President Obama shows weakness in the
face of threats from North Korea and Iran.
He is borrowing from our enemies, some
foreign governments, and thus from future
generations of Americans, for the benefit of
the here and now.
His arrogance in the face.of unprecedent-
ed deficits in our national debt and continual
advocacy to spend, spend, spend and tax,
tax, tax, is abhorrent.
Listen to these words of wisdom of two
of America' great Presidents and see how
these words measure up to the philosophies
and policies of the present administration.
President Washington made the follow-
ing comments: "It has been, very properly,
the policy of our government to cultivate
peace. But in the contemplating the possibil-
ity of our being driven to unqualified war, it
will be wise to anticipate that, frequently, the
most effective way to defend is to attack.
"Americans will fight for their liberties
and prosperity. God can get along without
America, but America cannot get along
without God. The Blessings and protec-
tion of Heaven are at all times necessary,
but especially so in times of public distress
and change. Government is not reason, it if
force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and
a fearful master."
Now these comments from President
Lincoln: "You cannot bring about prosperity
by discouraging thrift.
"You cannot help small men by tearing
down big men. You cannot strengthen the
weak by weakening the strong. You can-
not lift the wage earner by pulling down
the wage payer. You cannot help the poor
man by destroying the rich. You cannot keep
out of trouble by spending more that your
income. You cannot further the brotherhood
of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot
establish security by borrowed money. You
cannot build character and courage by tak-
ing away man's initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing
for them what they could and should do for
themselves."

Find Goliath; Look for closed
minds!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
In one area, we had a candidate for min-
istry who stuttered.
He had been rejected by his home re-
gion but still felt called to ministry. We had
an out-of-the-way Church of faithful people
where nobody wanted to serve.
When asked, they were glad to consider


him and he was glad to go.
They told us that once you got used to
listening to him, he really had something to
say!
They were pleased and he was fulfilled.
He taught those who would listen; it was
the message and not the messenger that
counted.
Jesus had the same problem. He went
to His home town and people questioned
"Where did this man get these things?"...
(Mark 6:1 ff).
They asked about his relatives and who
He was, "and don't we know His family?
"Mark adds "...they took offense at Him
(v.3)." The result was that His ministry
was limited; only a few cures "and He was
amazed at their lack of faith(v.6)."
It's been that way ever since; we choose
good or bad leaders not because of what
they do or say but because we like or dislike
them. We go to church and don't listen with
a critical ear because "it's our Church"; not
because of what is being taught.
We reject ideas without thinking about
them because they come from a source that
we don't like. One community had an excel-
lent physician but he was a bit too much "to
the point" for some of his patients.
They chose another physician because
they felt he was "nicer"; not because he was
good at healing.
We would talk about our teachers in
school; whether they were "nice" or "hard"
or "difficult" or "fun." It had nothing to do
with learning or teaching; the genius was
one who could be both "nice" and teach
too.
When I taught in college, one of my stu-
dents said "You're a nice guy but your tests
are hard."
I told him that I was responsible to see
that something was learned and that I didn't
think the tests were unfairly hard.
He shot back "But you're an educated
man!" I asked him how he thought one gets
to be "educated?"
No answer!
It's a good time in to look at what people
share; not whether we like them or not, or if
they are popular or unpopular.
David slays Goliath not because he faces
a warrior dressed as a warrior and prepared
for the usual means of combat; but because
he has honed skills as a shepherd that have
saved the lives of his sheep and knows how
to be deadly accurate at a distance.
He asks God to be with him, God was
with him; Goliath couldn't imagine another
outcome to the contest between the shep-
herd boy and the warrior; he knew it all.
Listen and learn; watch for what is to be
gained even from those we don't always
like, those who are not considered.
Then see God at work and miracles hap-
pening.

Priceless Scribbles
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I came across a story that was published
years ago in the Christian Reader about a fa-
ther who touched his children's lives in an
unexpected, yet special way.
As his father walked into the living room,
the boy noticed that his younger brother,


John, began to cower.
The older boy sensed that John had done
something wrong, and then he saw it. Little
John had opened their father's brand new
hymnal and scribbled all over the first page
with a pen.
Staring at their father fearfully, both broth-
ers waited for John's punishment.
Their father picked up his prized hym-
nal, looked at it carefully and then sat down
without saying a word.
Books were precious to him, and the
boys expected the worse.
What the father did next surprised them
both.
Instead of punishing or scolding John,
the father took the pen from the little boy's
hand, and wrote alongside the scribbles
that John had made: "John's work, 1959,
age 2. How many times have I looked into
your beautiful face and into your warm, alert
eyes looking up at me and thanked God for
the one who has now scribbled in my new
hymnal. You have made the book sacred, as
have your brother and sister to so much of
my life."
The author of the story, now an adult,
goes on to say how that hymnal became
a treasured family possession, how it was
tangible proof that their parents loved them,
how it taught the lesson that what really
matters is people, not objects; patience, not
judgment; love, not anger.
I've read that there are four elements we
need in our childhood to teach us such les-
sons and allow us to experience joy as an
adult. The first element is unconditional love
from at least one adult in our lives.
This unconditional love gives us self-
esteem and encourages us to see the world
as a friendly place. The second element is
discovering our passions through play. Most
of us in our unstructured play time discover
where our true talents and passions lay.
Some children take joy in telling stories,
or building backyard forts, or taking the
toaster apart. These early play times are a
great indicator of that child's later interests.
The third element involves practicing and
mastering these interests, talents, and pas-
sions.
This honing and mastering of particular
skills increases a child's self-confidence and
makes them less afraid to try new things.
And finally, a child needs to experience posi-
tive recognition from others.
Children learn what they live. As the say-
ing goes, "If children live with approval, they
learn to like themselves. If children live with
acceptance and friendship, they learn to love
the world."
Wouldn't it be wonderful if every child
could experience each of those four ele-
ments? Wouldn't it be wonderful if every
adult could, too? Wouldn't it be wonderful if
we could all learn to like ourselves and love
the world?

WMD) and the Hendry-Glades Audubon,
whose experts lead public birding tours at
the District-managed Stormwater Treatment
Area 5 (STA-5) in Hendry County. Most tours
are guided by Audubon's Margaret England,
who recently received the District's first
Ambassador Award to recognize her com-
munity service and commitment to assist
the District and provide increased access to
public lands.
"The diversity of species at STA-5 is truly
breathtaking, and the partnership with the
Hendry-Glades Audubon is a significant
public service," said SFWMD Executive Di-
rector Carol Ann Wehle. "These treatment
wetlands are effective at cleaning water
flowing into the River of Grass and, as an
added benefit, have also become wildlife
havens that showcase the environmental
and economic significance of Everglades
restoration."
Birding, a national pastime, is big busi-
ness, with 48 million people observing birds
both around the home and through vaca-
tion travel. A 2001 report by the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service concluded that nation-
wide birding generated $32 billion in retail
sales and created 863,406 jobs.
Non-consumptive bird use (non-hunting
activities) supported more than 19,000 jobs
in Florida in 2006, and wildlife viewing ac-
tivities generated more than $3 billion state-
wide that year, according to a state report.
Second in the nation only to California, bird-
ing generates an estimated $477 million in
retail sales in Florida every year.
During the past 15 years, Stormwater
Treatment Areas have proven to be the wa-
ter-cleaning workhorses of Everglades resto-
ration, utilizing plants to remove phospho-


rus from water flowing into the Everglades.
Since 1994, six STAs - with a combined
area of more than 52,000 acres - have re-
tained more than 1,000 metric tons.of total
phosphorus that would have otherwise
entered the Everglades. Overall, Florida has
invested more than $1.8 billion to improve
Everglades water quality.
At each Stormwater Treatment Area, wa-
ter levels are managed at an optimal depth
for water quality improvements, which
also creates an attractive habitat for wading
birds. The District has taken steps to ensure
the public has access at these sites for spec-
tacular wildlife viewing as well as duck hunt-
ing, enhanced at STA-5 by construction of a
waterfowl watching/hunting platform for
disabled veterans and residents alike.
The District is committed to increasing

Everglades Ecosystem Restoration meetings in West Palm Beach


There's a wonderful world around us. Full of
fascinating places. Interesting people. Amazing

a map, then we have to wonder what they do
know about their world. That's why we created
MyWonderfulWorld.org. It's part of a free National
Geographic-led campaign to give your kids the
power of global knowledge. Go there today and

Kid reporter travels to Hall of Presidents


1,000 immigrants sworn in
at Disney World on Fourth
of July weekend

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
ORLANDO - It's safe to say that Damon
Weaver is enjoying his summer, to say to
least.
Only 11 years old, the kid sensation re-
cently accepted a scholarship offer to Albany
State University.
And he spent some time at Disney World
last week.
After spending two weeks at Kiddie Col-
lege in Albany, Ga., Damon took part in a
Hall of Presidents event, which was from
July 3-4.
The Hall of Presidents, which is located in
Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom, features
all of the past 43 U.S. Presidents.
But it wouldn't be complete without the
installation of Barack Obama, who is now
the nation's 44th President.
Speaking of which, Damoh's dream to
interview President Obama came true - sort
of.


Damon and his KEC-TV news director, as Robobama, which Damon got to inter-

sworn immigrants.
"We must honor our ancestors in that
journey by blazing our own with dignity."
Later in the ceremony, President Obama
had a brief message for the new citizens.
"It's an honor and privilege to call you a
fellow citizen of the United States of Amer-
ica," President Obama said to the crowd,
who listened intently to his words.
"This is now officially your country, your
home to protect, to defend and to serve
through active and engaged citizenship."
The attendees roared in applause at the
conclusion of the ceremony, which Damon
was there to cover.
Damon summed up his time at the Hall
of Presidents event.
S"I had a great time at Disney World and I
would like to thank them for letting me stay
here," Damon said at the conclusion of his
11 minute long YouTube clip.

Florida Green Lodging Program Surpasses 500 Members


Program's growth offers
variety for green-minded
vacationers

The Florida Department of Environmen-
tal Protection's (DEP) Green Lodging Pro-
gram recently designated its 500th property,
the Holiday Inn University Center in Gaines-
ville, among 42 others, bringing the program
total to 540 designated properties. The soar-
ing number of designated facilities offers
the eco-conscious traveler scores of choices
when considering lodging accommodations
in Florida this summer.
"These 540 facilities are leaders in the
lodging industry and prove that green is still
growing in Florida," said DEP Director of Sus-
tainable Initiatives Deas Bohn. "The state's
lodging industry serves more than 35 mil-
lion guests annually and thanks to the com-
mitment of the facilities, guests can choose
from a wide variety of hotels, motels, bed &
breakfasts and even cabins that protect and
preserve Florida's natural environment."
To become a designated member of the
voluntary program, lodging facilities adopt
cost-saving green practices to conserve en-
ergy, reduce water consumption, protect air
quality and reduce waste. New designations
statewide include:

The Program's growth is largely attrib-
uted to Governor Charlie Crist's suite of 2007
executive orders aimed at reducing Florida's
greenhouse-gas emissions, increasing en-
ergy efficiency and removing market barri-


ers for renewable energy technologies such
as solar and wind energy. Executive Order
07-126 required state agencies and depart-
ments under the direction of the Governor
to contract for events only with hotels that
had received the Florida Green Lodging Pro-
gram.
Building on the executive orders, in June
2008, Governor Crist signed House Bill 7135,
"The Energy, Climate Change, And Econom-
ic Security Act Of 2008", which expanded the
Florida Green Lodging Program requirement
to all state agencies. This comprehensive en-
ergy and economic development legislation
also encompassed reducing greenhouse gas
emissions as well as encouraging invest-
ment in alternative and renewable energy
technologies. To learn more visit www.my-
floridaclimate.com.
DEP's Office of Sustainable Initiatives is
comprised of three voluntary, non-regula-
tory programs that assist Florida industry
and citizens in protecting the environment.
The Clean Marina Program, the Clean Ves-
sel Act grant program and the Florida Green
Lodging Program offer a variety of services
.including consultations, speakers and work-
shops, all at no cost to citizens or organiza-
tions. The goal of the Sustainable Initiatives
programs is to meet the needs of the present
population without compromising resources
for future generations. To learn more about

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue an environmental resource permit
(File No. 272605-001) to Alico, Inc, 640 South Main Street, LaBelle, Florida 33935, to expand an existing limestone-
mining operation within a 514.9-acre project area of pasturelands and sugar cane fields. The total area served by
the water management system will be 486.9 acres.
Mining on the site began in 1991. A total of 79.4 acres have been mined in two-pits on the north side of the proper
, that were previously known as the Ridgdill and Son, Inc. - Ridgdill Pits number 5 and 7. An earlier mine pit on
te east side of the property (the Macaspalt, Inc. - Moore Haven Mine), which will remain outside of the permitted
system, has already been reclaimed and will remain undisturbed. The Bronson Mine site has not been previously
permitted.
Groundwater levels at the mine site are heavily influenced by the water levels maintained in the Caloosahatchee Riv-
er Canal (C-43), which in turn is dependent on water levels maintained in Lake Okeechobee. There will be dewater-
ing of the active pits during mining. Excess water will be circulated through recharge ditches surrounding each mine
pit, with water elevations controlled by a system of weirs.
The mine is designed to recycle and store all process wastewater and runoff from storm events up to a 25 year,
72-hour storm. No wetlands are proposed to be adversely impacted by the mining. The only other surface waters
on the site are the existing mine pits.
No impervious surfaces will remain after mining. The maximum depth of the proposed mining will be approximately
30 feet below the existing grade, which is about 28 feet below the average water table. After mining, the project

.i i..: .:.:i,.-- ii ,l i i... ... r . feet NGVD, which is six feet below theaverage water level. The
shorelines will be revegetated with a mix of native herbaceous plants and trees. The estimated ife of the mine is 20
years. The postreclamation anticipated land use is agricultural, with pasture grass and mixed pine/hardwood forest.
The project is located six miles southwest of Moore Haven, two miles south of the intersection of U.S. Highway 27
and State Road 78, Sections 24 and 25, Township 42 South, Range 31 East, in Glades County.
This permit is hereby granted unless a sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is timely filed under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes as provided below. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set
forth below. Mediation is not available.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's action may petition for an administrative pro-
ceeding (hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the infor-
mation set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department
at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Forida 32399-3000.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to redetermine final agency action on the application, the fil-
ing of a petition for an administrative hearing may result in a modification of the permit or even a denial of the ap-
plication.
Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the Florida Administrative Code, a person whose substantial interests are affected by
the Department's action may also request an extension of time to file a petition for an administrative hearing. The
Department may, for good cause shown, grant the request for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time
must be filed with the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Forida 32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A timely request for extension of time shall toll
the running of the time period for filing a petition until the request is acted upon. If a request is filed late, the De-
partment may still grant it upon a motion by the requesting party showing that the failure to file a request for an ex-
tension of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect.
In the event that a timely and sufficient petiton for an administrative hearing is filed, other persons whose substan-
tal interests will be affected by the outcome of the administrative process have the right to petition to intervene in
the proceeding. Any intervention will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administratve Code.
In accordance with rules 28-106.111(2) and 62-110.106(3)(a)(4), F.A.C, petitions for an administrative hearing by
the applicant must be filed within 21 days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions filed by any persons other than
the applicant, and other than those entitled to written notice under section 120.60(3) of the Florda Statutes must
be filed within 21 days of publication of the notice, or within 21 days of receipt of the written notice, whichever oc-
curs first. Under section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes, however, any person who has asked the Department for
notice of agency action may file a petition within 21 days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publica-
tion.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing.
The failure of any person to file a petition for an administrative hearing within the appropriate time period shall con-
stitute a waiver of that person's nght to request an administrative determination (hearing) under sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Departments action is based must contain the following in-
formation:
a The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceed-
ing; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests are or will be affected by the agency determina-
tion;
cA statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency decision;
d A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate;
A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts that the petitioner contends war-
rant reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes that the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the
agents proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the petitioner wishes the
agency to take with respect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Departments action is based shall state that no such
facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by rule
28-106.301, F.A.C. Under sections 120.569(2)(c) and (d) of the Florida Statutes, a petition for administrative hear-
ing must be dismissed by the agency if the petition does not substantially comply with the above requirements or is
untimely filed.
This action is final and effective on the date filed with the Clerk of the Department unless a petition is filed in accor-
dance with the above. Upon the timely filing of a petition this order will not be effective until further order of the
Department.
This intent to issue constitutes an order of the Department. The applicant has the right to seek judicial review of
the order under section 120.68 of the Florida Statutes, by the filing of a notice of appeal under rule 9.110 of the
Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the Clerk of the Department in the Office of General Counsel, 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida, 32399-3000; and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal
accompanied by the applicable filing fees with the appropriate district court of appeal. The notice of appeal must be
filed within 30 days from the date when the final order is filed with the Clerk of the Department. The applicant, or
any party within the meaning of section 373.114(1)(a) of the Florida Statutes, may also seek appellate review of this
order before the Land and Water Adjudicatory Commission under section 373.114(1) of the Florida Statutes. Re-
quests for review before the Land and Water Adjudicatory Commission must be filed with the Secretary of the Com-

July 9, 2009Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee The Sun - 19


GUA board members selected


Seven people named to
committee

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES - The Glades Utility Authority
(GUA) approved the selection of a newly-
formed committee board on July 1.
This move comes just a few weeks after
the June 16 formation of the entity.
During the July 1 GUA meeting, held at
Belle Glade City Hall, it was revealed that the
Belle Glade representatives would be Depu-
ty City Manager Mark Kutney and Samantha
Wallace.
Both selections were reportedly nomi-
nated by Belle Glade's five commissioners at
its June 1 commission meeting.
In a vote on Belle Glade's June 15 com-
mission meeting - just two weeks after the
nomination - all of the commissioners voted
5-0 in favor of Kutney and Wallace.
Belle Glade commissioner Mary Wilker-
son on the two selections:
"Mark knows the condition (ins and outs)
of Belle Glade financially," Wilkerson said of
Kutney.
"He's very knowledgeable of the GUA
contract and I'm quite sure he'll make sure it
will be carried out in the best interest of the'
city and its citizens," Wilkerson continued.
"Samantha is a well-educated woman.
She's an all-around person and she's going
to make an informed decision when she
gets ready to vote."
Belle Glade's commissioners also consid-
ered Eddie Lee Rhodes and Charles Wilson,
but both reportedly declined the offer due to
other obligations.
Pahokee's selection was Derrek Moore,
the city's finance director.
South Bay picked Corey Alston, its new
city manager, as its GUA board selection.


The at-large selection for the Glades area
is Michael E. Jackson, who's the ombuds-
man/liaison to Palm Beach County Commis-
sioner Jess Santamaria (District 6).
The move was questioned by some,
who may have thought Jackson was a Palm
Beach County employee, thus creating a po-
tential conflict of interest.
But the county had no issue with the se-
lection, as it was revealed that his position is
on a contract basis.
The county members on the GUA board
are Shannon LaRocque and Jimmy Beno.
Here's how the votes will be broken
down:
Belle Glade - 2 votes
Pahokee - I vote
South Bay - 1 vote
At-large selection - 1 vote
Palm Beach County selections - 2
votes each
There were concerns about how the
voting would take place, as locals initially
feared that the county would ultimately have
the final say in how decisions are made with
the GUA.
But with the area having a total of five
representatives, residents'should know that
the Glades area will be holding the majority
of the votes.
"That's what the county drew up and the
three cities approved it," said Lomax Har-
relle, Belle Glade's city manager.
"It's going to take them a while to get ev-
erything sorted out."
The GUA board members are typically
scheduled to meet on the first Wednesday
of every month.
Each of the tri-cities will host the GUA
meetings for three consecutive months on a
rotating basis.
The GUA will officially launch on Oct. 1,
the first day of fiscal year 2009-2010.

Arrest made in recent



Pahokee shooting


Suspect faces charge of
aggravated battery with
firearm

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - Authorities have appre-
hended a 23-year-old man in relation to a
shooting that occurred on June 11.
An affidavit from the Palm Beach Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office (PBSO) charges that-
Jonathan D. Collins, also known as 'Juice',
was the individual who shot Pernile McK-
elton in his right hip that day.
As previously reported, the shooting
was located at the corner of Booker Place
and Rardin Avenue at 3:39 p.m. that day.
To this day, it's not clear what the mo-
tive was that led to this incident.
On June 26 - exactly 15 days after the
shooting - detectives reportedly spotted the
suspect in the parking lot of the Southern
Palm Crossing Plaza on State Road 80.
At about 1 p.m., detectives reportedly
made a traffic stop on a blue 2004 Chevro-
let Monte Carlo, which was later found to
have drugs in it.
According to the PBSO arrest report, in-
vestigators recognized the suspect as the
passenger of the Monte Carlo, which bore
a Fla. license tag identified as W01-7FL.
Almost immediately after the suspect


and the driver were ordered by deputies to
exit the vehicle, he was reportedly arrested
without incident.
However, all the apprehension did was
open the door for a litany of charges to be
placed on the suspect, who was charged
with two felony counts of aggravated bat-
ter with a firearm.
A warrant was already issued for the
suspect's arrest, which cleared the way for
detectives to conduct the vehicle search.
The female driver reportedly provided
investigators a written consent to search
her Monte Carlo after stating there was no
weapons or contraband in the vehicle.
The search revealed a white, rock-like
material that authorities determined to be
crack cocaine in the front passenger seat
of the car, where the suspect was report-
edly sitting at.
Detectives also reportedly found co-
caine on the top of an opened soda can,
noticing that the substance was floating
inside the soda can.
The cocaine was later strained from the
soda by detectives, with the total recovered
amount at about 13.3 grams, according to
the PBSO affidavit.
The suspect was charged with six felo-
ny counts of cocaine possession and one
count of tampering with evidence, in addi-
tion to the charges already placed on him.
