Weekend crash leaves one man dead


Investigators say
alcohol may have
played a key role in
the fatal incident
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - A trip turned dead-
ly for two men Saturday morning
as they traveled south on Bacom
Point Road.
According to a vehicle homi-
cide report by the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
a 1997 Ford F-150 pickup truck,
driven by 44-year-old Alfredo
Gamez, swerved off the roadway


and into a palm tree.
As the driver was reportedly
passing a slower moving vehicle
on Bacom Point Road (State Road
715), he crossed the double yel-
low lane lines in order to spring
ahead.
While Gamez attempted to
make his way back into his ap-
propriate lane, he lost control of
his vehicle, swerving so abruptly
that it went into a side slip.
The pickup truck then veered
off to the west shoulder of the
roadway and continued sliding
until it hit the aforementioned
tree, officials said.
The F-150 reportedly rotated
around the tree until it came to
a complete stop, ejecting Gamez


and his. passenger, 32-year-old
Ramiro A. Castillo, out of the ve-
hicle.
Castillo was pronounced dead
on the scene by investigators,
while Gamez was transported via
Trauma Hawk to St. Mary's Hos-
pital.
The crash investigation is on-
going.
However, detectives revealed
that alcohol may have played a
role in the fatal accident.
Neither occupant was report-
edly wearing their seatbelts prior
to the crash.
It was revealed that Gamez
suffered only minor injuries as a

23 UM players hosted

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - Luke Pierre, the
Glades Glen Browns youth football
head coach, was overjoyed last
weekend with the outpour of sup-
port from the Miami Hurricanes
college football team.
It made Pierre feel good when
he saw the likes of University of
Miami (UM) stars Travis Benjamin,
Damien Berry, Randy Phillips and
Micanor Regis taking their time out
to spend quality time with his Pop
Warner players.
At least 60 kids from the area
participated in the July 11 football
camp, which comprised of Glades
Glen, Okeechobee Center and Pa-
hokee.
Though the Saturday afternoon
camp lasted for about an hour,
many of the players reportedly
wanted to stay longer.
Take UM sophomore wide re-
ceiver Travis Benjamin, for exam-
ple.
Normally a quiet, soft-spoken
and reserved individual, Benjamin
was reportedly in his element as he

GC Raiders win NFL 7-on-7 national title


Glades Central WR Kevin
Benjamin named MVP

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
EDEN PRAIRIE (Minn.) - Glades Central
has earned the right to be called national
champions, as far as the NFL is concerned.
After playing in this year's NFL 7-on-7
tournament, the Raiders cemented that dis-
tinction as they outlasted North Cobb (Ga.),
38-28 over the weekend.
Glades Central wide receiver Kevin Benja-
min, listed at 6-6 and 217 lbs., led all receiv-
ers with 13 touchdowns in the tournament.
- In large part to that, including a series of
spectacular jump-ball plays for touchdowns,
Benjamin was selected by the NFL as the
tournament MVP.
As the Miami Dolphins representatives,
Glades Central went 11-0 in both prelimi-
nary and single-elimination play, including
blowout wins against the Cleveland Browns,
the New England Patriots and the Houston
Texans.
In the final, Glades Central held off North
Cobb, who served as the Atlanta Falcons
representatives.
Jessie Hester, Glades Central's head
coach, described the title game as a back-
and-forth affair.
.He was right, as published reports re-
vealed-that the Falcons were engaged in a
38-38 tie with the Dolphins (Glades Central)
with just.two minutes left in the game.
In the end, however, Glades Central's
skill position players scored 10 unanswered
points, including a clutch defensive intercep-
tion by cornerback/safety Travis Bell.
"Atlanta had some skill position players,
but we were simply too much for them,"
said Greg Moreland, Glades Central's defen-


sive backs coach.
"Our boys worked hard and they were
prepared for it. Me and Coach Hester expect
a lot from them, we know what they're ca-
pable of."
If anything, the championship represent-
ed a coming out party for rising star Dem-
etrius 'Bay-Bay' Evans, who caught three
touchdown passes from quarterback L.J.
Thomas in the hotly-contested game.
Hester even went out his way to call the
championship game 'The L.J. and Demetri-
us Evans Show,' as Evans caught two deep
balls in good Atlanta defensive coverage for
touchdowns.
"They displayed tremendous ability with
their timing in the title game," Hester said of
Thomas and Evans.
"It seemed like they played 'with each
other for a long time."
Kevin Benjamin, Antwon 'Pooh Bear'
Chisolm and Greg Dent each scored touch-
downs in the title game, courtesy of Thom-
as's accurate passing.
Bell, who led the Dolphins (Glades Cen-
tral) with 10 interceptions throughout the
weekend national tournament, caught two
picks in the championship game.
"To witness the talent of all the teams out
there, we had to play well together," Hester
said of his players. It was important for us to
be on the same page and not second-guess
ourselves. In that sense, it lucked out in our
favor."
Amazingly, Glades Central averaged 40.4
points per game, scoring 444 points overall.
Thomas threw for 38 touchdowns, while
picking off just three passes in Glades Cen-
tral's 11 games.
Evans caught seven touchdown passes
overall, including a defensive interception.
The defense was more than respectable
as well, as they averaged four interceptions
per game.


One look at the figure will tell you that
Glades Central's defensive backs contribut-
ed at least 12 points per game, on average.
Hester was particularly impressed with
the play of Tavares 'T-Baby' Crawford, who
inspired the competition with his sheer
toughness, even with a dislocated thumb.
Crawford overcame his pain with one in-
terception, including 19 knockdowns, in the
tournament.
Chisolm, who scored five touchdowns in
the competition, caught eight interceptions
as a cornerback on defense.
Dent, widely considered as one of the na-
tion's most explosive skill position players,
recorded five interceptions overall.
Jamorris 'Mario' Rowland contributed on
defense with three picks of his own.
The other Glades Central players at the
tournament were Alanda 'A.J.' Shaw, Domi-
nique Gibson, Carlton Lewis Jr. and Jamie
Wilson.
Here are the results of Glades Central's 11
tournament games:
Preliminary results - Day 1
Game 1 - Defeated Indianapolis Colts,
67-7
Game 2 - Defeated Houston Texans, 41-
28
Game 3 - Defeated Baltimore Ravens,
54-28
Game 4 - Defeated Denver Broncos, 31-
24
Game 5 - Defeated Cleveland Browns,
28-21 (2 OT)
Game 6 - Defeated New York Jets, 45-28
Game 7 - Defeated New England Patri-
ots, 34-3
Elimination results - Day 2
First round - Defeated Cleveland
Browns, 24-0 .


Quarterfinals - Defeated New England
Patriots, 41-28
Semifinals - Defeated Houston Texans,
31-17
Final - Defeated Atlanta Falcons, 48-38
The preliminary games were played on
Friday, July 10, while the single eliminations
took place on Saturday, July 11.
"The kids had a tremendous experience,"
Hester said of the 12 players who competed.
They represented themselves, our coaching
staff, the Dolphins, Glades Central and the
community well. I couldn't ask any more of
them on and off the field."
Tournament notes
The NFL 7-on-7 tournament was pre-
sented by the U.S. National Guard and was
played at the Minnesota Vikings Winter Park
training facility in Eden Prairie, MN.
Of the 16 NFL teams represented, only
the Dolphins (Glades-Central), the Falcons
(North Cobb), -the Arizona Cardinals and.
Washington Redskins featured an organized
high school football team.
The other 12 teams were comprised of
all-star skill position players from their re-
spective cities.
All 16 teams reportedly won their region-
al tournaments in their NFL markets to earn
a spot in the national competition.
Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Chil-
dress gave a 20-minute long speech to the
16 teams, with Glades Central being the only
team to take photos with him afterwards.
NFL Films shot footage of the 7-on-7
competition, with The NFL Network slated
to air highlights from the tournament later
this summer.

Pahokee PBSO PAL boxers win in Hollywood


By Steven Tillings
Pahokee boxers once again made a win-
ning presence. This time it was at the Hilton
Hotel ballroom in Hollywood Florida.
Spectators from many different states had
the opportunity to see the Pahokee boxers
perform and win.
Pahokee Elementary School's 9-year-old
Michael Guerrier was the 8th bout of the
afternoon when he faced 10-year-old Jor-
dan Murphy from the Broward Sheriff's Of-
fice Police Athletic League, in the 60 pound
weight division.
This bout was a rematch for Guerrier
who was defeated by Murphy at the Junior.
Olympics last April.
As soon as the boxing gloves were placed
on his hands, the Pahokee boxer did not
waste any time and entered the ring first,
telling his coach, Deputy Mike LeStrange,
"I'm going to win this time coach."
When the opening bell rang, Guerrier was
all business, as he stayed in front of Murphy
and was landing right jabs and straight left
hands to his opponent.
When Murphy attempted to counter
punch, Guerrier's quick reflexes kept him
from getting hit.
At the conclusion of the competition, the
ring announcer informed the crowd that Mi-
chael Guerrier won a three-round decision.

Mike LeStrange is proud of the work of his boxers, who are determined to rep-
resent the Glades area in a positive light.


was then placed on him.
Coach LeStrange said he is proud of-Mi-
chael. He said, "We studied Murphy, and
found a way to train to beat his style of box-
ing."
In the 13th bout, Pahokee Middle/High


School's Trent Laidler won again in the 119
weight division by defeating Miami's Zach-
ary Vasquez in a 3-round decision.
Laidler is the first Florida champion from
the Pahokee PAL boxing gym and won the
Florida Junior Olympic championship in Ju-


piter last April.
He was landing punches in combina-
tions and was beating Vasquez to the punch.
Coach LeStrange said, "We are going to
compete as much as possible, so our Paho-
kee athletes are as sharp as we can make
them."
Pahokee Parks and Recreation Director
Herbert Crawford and Coach LeStrange are
working together to bring the Florida State
Silver Gloves Boxing Championship to Paho.
kee this December.
This is a historic event for the city. Paho-
kee has never hosted a state boxing champi-
onship before.
LeStrange said, "The Silver Gloves will
bring about 500 visitors to Pahokee for the
weekend.
Mr. Crawford and I feel this event will be
a win-win for the kids, and community. We
expect a good economic impact for the city.
Teams throughout Florida will come here.
This includes athletes, coaches, parents, and
family friends."

ing call (561) 254-7773.

Hurricane preparedness is the key to survival

Brenda Barnes with Jim Syoen, FOX-4 Sky Warn 4
Weather Forecaster.


By Patricia Dobbins
Every year staff members at the Hendry
and Glades County Health Departments get
together for their annual "Preparedness Day
Training."
This year the staff enjoyed a special guest
speaker: Jim Syoen, Sky Warn 4 Weather
Forecaster with WFTX-TV/FOX 4.


The training event took
place at the Hendry County
Health Department-Clewis-
ton site on Friday, June 19th.
This year's theme was "We
Are Survivors."
All staff members were
encouraged to dress in their
"survivor-tropical gear" and
Jim Syoen decided to join
in on the fun by wearing his
Hawaiian shirt, shorts and
deck shoes.
The staff members thor-
oughly enjoyed the wisdom
and wit of Jim Syoen, and
really appreciated that he
drove over 70 miles to join
the event. He was definitely
the "positive thunder" of the


day.
He talked to the staff about the hurricane
season outlook, how different weather pat-
terns and hurricanes form, and some basic
"survival skills."
He .opened the floor so that questions
could be asked, which prompted discus-
sions on tornadoes, lightning and thunder-

storms. He also talked about past storms to
remind everyone how quickly the path of a
storm can change.
The staff members tried to convince him
to play his tuba, but he shared some comi-
cal stories as to why his tuba was being
"cleaned."
Other guests at the event included Arlene
Bettencourt with United Way & 211, the
Hendry County Emergency Management Di-
rector, Lupe Taylor and her Executive Assis-
tant, Kelly Dyess. Additionally, Brett Slocum,
the Regional Emergency Response Advisor
for the Department of Health provided the
staff with some valuable information.
The training events included prepared-


ness challenges that encouraged staff to
"think outside of the box" when it comes to
disaster preparedness.
Staff members were divided into teams.
and were give disaster scenarios in which
they had to come up with response solu-
tions.
Hendry County Emergency Manage-
ment donated a weather radio and other
preparedness goodies as prizes for the staff
members.
It was a challenging but fun learning
experience. Hopefully it will be a quiet hur-
ricane season but if not, the staff members
at the Hendry and Glades County Health De-
partments are prepared.

Walk in the Past: Andrew Jackson invades Florida


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
An exodus of lanky men with weather-
worn skins, bronzed by the sun and cal-
loused by the plow, journeyed with their
women folk and towheaded children across
the Georgia wilderness trails like the wan-
dering Lost Tribes of Israel.
The moving, shifting throngs of people,
with rough, homespun cloths and simple
ways, failed to denote Southern gentry, but a
land-hungry people that saw the new Indian
lands as their rightful heritage to an Ameri-
can dream.
The sorrowful eyes of a defeated and re-
jected brown-skinned race watched from
the enclosed shadows of their many forests,
while masses of white humanity moved
across their lands, devouring the endless
hunting grounds like swarms of locust, until
only farms and barnyard sounds remained.
SThe old saying, "The Law of The Jungle,"
emphasizes the survival of the fittest and
alludes to another saying, "To the Victor
goes the Spoils." These famous quotes are
great appraisals when one is a winner, but
somewhat unhealthy to one's morale and
demeanor, should he or she lose and the
stakes are high..
It is time to "Take a Walk in The Past" and
learn about the vanquished Creek Indians
and their impact on Florida.
The Creek War, 1813 to 1814, started-as a
civil war among the Creek Indians, but esca-
lated into a war with the United States when
Ft Mims was attacked and its inhabitants
massacred. The United States was already
engaged in a war with England called "The
War of 1812,"when it declared war on the
hostile Creeks.
Most of the U.S Army troops were already
battling the British armies and their Indian
allies in the north. The lack of U.S. Army
troops forced the Southeast states and ter-
ritories to call for volunteers. Soon volunteer
militias sprang up in the territories and states
representing present day Georgia, North and
South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, and
Mississippi.
The Tennessee Volunteer army and 39th
Army regulars under Colonel Jackson be-
came the driving force that defeated the
hostile Creeks, known by the settlers as Red
Sticks. Colonel Andrew Jackson and his
armies invaded the Red Stick's sacred Holy
Ground, which was the heartland to their.
settlements. They engaged the Red Sticks in
a series of battles and broke their resistance
at The Battle of Horseshoe Bend.
SA peace treaty was negotiated and signed
by only one Red Stick leader because the
other Red Stick leaders had fled to Florida
where they continued to fight. The arrristice
was called The Treaty of Ft. Jackson. The
treaty ceded 23 million acres of land from
the Creek Red Sticks to the United States.
Most of the land ceded would later become
the state of Alabama.
Some of the lands ceded to the United
States belonged to friendly Creeks, Chero-
kees and other Indian nations that had allied
with the United States and fought the Red
Sticks.
Jackson made allowances for these Indi-
ans. He gave each a one-mile square (640
acres) within the boundaries of the ceded 23

million acres.
Those friendly Indians, who received
640 acres, were required to live on the land.
Failure to live on the allotted land would for-
feit legal ownership. The land would be re-
turned to the United States Government for
later distribution to white settlers.
The Indians who fought and supported
the United States during the war were very
angry. A square mile of land looks mighty
enticing to us folks today, but back in the
day it was a bitter pill for the friendly Indians
to swallow, when you consider they had le-
gitimate claims to hundreds of thousands of
acres before the Creek War started.
The Treaty of Fort Jackson in 1814, of-
ficially ended the Creek War in the United
States, but it continued unofficially in Ole
La Florida until the Peace Treaty of Ghent
was signed in 1815, which ended the War
of 1812.
- Spain was England's ally in the Napo-
leonic Wars (1808 to 1814) and enemy to
Frantce. In 1812, the United States declared
war on England, so Spain simply declared
itself a neutral country and La Florida a neu-
tral territory. This was purely a political ploy
on Spain's part.
A partnership between Spain and Eng-
land budded in Florida; Spain was always
fearful that the United States was going to
take Florida, and justly so, while England
had never gotten over the loss of her 13 colo-
nies. Spain needed a protectorate, so behind
closed doors, a conspiracy was formed.
British troops and supplies were brought
into northwest Florida on Apalachicola Bay.
Forts were constructed on the Apalachicola
River and military training provided to the
Red Sticks, Seminoles and Blacks living in
the region.
British officials provided guns and sup-
plies to the Red Sticks and other Indians that
were fighting the United States in the Creek
Indian War. The British hoped to create a
strong British sentiment in the Southeast
and encouraged the Five Civilized Tribes to
wage war on the United States.
Black slaves living in the South were also
encouraged by the British to flee to Florida,
where they would find a safe haven from
slavery. England hoped to recruit and arm


an army of black soldiers 5,000 strong. They
would invade Georgia and start a slave in-
surrection, which could spread across the
south, causing havoc and weakening the
United States resolve to continue the war.
Colonel Andrew Jackson was promoted
to Major General in 1814. That same year he
invaded Spanish Florida and captured Pen-
sacola, which messed up the British plans
for using that region as a staging point for
the invasion of Georgia.
Jackson was so thoroughly convinced
the British had big plans for Florida that
he almost missed "The Battle of New Or-
leans." His orders were to proceed to New
Orleans after the capture of Pensacola, but
he hesitated, while trying to figure out Brit-
ish strategy in Florida. His late arrival in New
Orleans gave him little time to prepare for
the defense of the city.
Jackson met the British at the Battle of
New Orleans with a much smaller army.
The British commanders viewed Jackson's
army with contempt. They saw an inferior,
rag-tag army going against British soldiers
that had faced and defeated Napoleon's elite
French soldiers. It was prideful oversight that
brought disastrous results and the defeat of
their army.
The battles of Horseshoe Bend and New
Orleans turned General Jackson, "Old Hick-
ory," into a national hero. Sad, but true, the
Battle of New Orleans was fought after the
Treaty of Ghent was signed in 1815. Unfor-
tunately, Ma Bell wasn't present at that time,
so communications were too slow.
The British made provisions in the Treaty
of Ghent that protected Indian Nations who
had fought against the United States. These
provisions stated that Indians hostile to the
United States during the war would retain
their lands.
President Madison, John Quincy Adams
and Andrew Jackson contented that the pro-
visions in the Treaty of Ghent, which guar-
anteed hostile Indians their lands as null
because it was signed after the Fort Jackson
Treaty, which declared all hostile Indians to
now be friendly Indians.
The British and other European powers
protested, but to no avail. The Fort Jackson
Treaty went into effect and 23 million acres


of Indian Lands became American soil.
American settlers rushed to the ceded
lands after the British forces withdrew in
1815. One of the greatest land rushes in the
history of the United States took place on
lands not surveyed or officially offered for
sale until 1817.
There will be more Tall Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
Jackson invades Florida a second time and
the First Seminole War begins.
On a short note, the article last week stat-
ed Davy Crockett was mad at the soldiers for
their brutal treatment of Creek Red Sticks. I
was doing research and found his biogra-
phy.
Davy wrote that he and his comrades
shot the Indians like dogs, which contradicts
my article. The other statements about Davy
Crockett were true. I apologize to the read-
ers.
I hope you have enjoyed this story. Please
contact the Clewiston Museum if you have
questions, artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale
of a Tale" that you would like to share. The
Museum's hours are Monday through Friday
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The museum provides an interesting fos-
sil display of prehistoric animals that once
roamed the Glades thousands of years ago
and artifacts that reflect the heritage of
Clewiston. Its theater has a 65-seat capacity
and presents movies on the history of Clewis-
ton, sugar cane harvesting, and the orange
industry. Come by and enjoy a 45- minute
group-tour for only $2.00 per person.

Did curiosity kill the cat? He had

eight other lives anyway!
By The Reverend Samuel S. Thomas, Ph.
D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We turn out to be curious creatures. From infancy, creatures
explore their worlds and seek to discover all they can about their
what is going on around them. Biblical times were no different.
Moses was tending the flock of his father-in-law and saw a bush
that is afire but doesn't burn up (Exodus 3;lff) He is compelled to
find out why.
At Jesus' birth, angels appear to shepherds and announce the
good news. When they left, the shepherds said "Let us go to Beth-
lehem and see this thing that has happened, that the Lord told us
about. (Luke 2:15)" Hearing about it wasn't enough, they had to
go and see it for themselves.
We have been involved in space travel since World War II be-
cause of our innate curiosity about "What's out there?" I've seen
people spend hours working to put life back into a dead motor;
keeping at it until it runs again. It isn't just a case of repairing the
motor; it's a need to find out why and what was overlooked in
previous attempts.
Parents seek the causes of an allergy that affects one of their
children; searching to see if it is something that can be eliminated
and are satisfied only when the rash goes away. I used to have
a series of blocks made from irregularly shaped pieces of plastic;
when assembled correctly were perfectly square and would fit in-
side of a plastic box on my coffee table. People would come over
and visit; and then take the blocks out of the boxes. The pieces
would tumble onto the table and they would spend the rest of the
evening trying to put them in the right sequence so that they would
fit back in the box. I'd be asked "Can I take them home?" ("No you
can't" was always my answer!) What is the answer to the question
"Why?"
The God-given answer seems to be "Go, find out!" God has
made us curious in our very being. We understand that about what
is going on around us and is visible; but it's true spiritually as well.
I've been asked often enough "Why did he have to die?" and can
only give some general answers as a rule; "His ministry here-was
finished" or "He had accomplished what God sent him here to do."
The better answer to our questions is "Go, find out for yourself."
Be curious enough to find your own answer; then it will serve
you and will be truly satisfying. I found my answer to the question
"Why?" sometimes was "Why not?" or "Keep looking!" When we
find our world turned upside down or when life seems to be falling
into a not-so-comfortable rut; it may be time to say "Let's go over
to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened!" That may be
the final answer!


Granny's Letter
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
"A cheerful heart is good medicine." (Proverbs 17:22). We can
experience blessings if we don't take life so seriously that we miss.
out on laughing often. Laughter's good medicine for the body and
the soul. In that spirit, let mre share with you some "holy humor".
Got a letter from Grandma the other day in which she writes:
The other day I went up to a local Christian bookstore and saw
a "Honk if you love Jesus" bumper sticker. I had just come from
a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer
meeting, so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper. Boy, I'm
glad I did! What an uplifting experience that followed!
Stopped by a red light at a busy intersection, I got lost in thought
about the Lord and how good He is and didn't notice that the light
had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because
if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed!
I found that LOTS of people love Jesus! Why, while I was sitting
there, the guy behind me started honking like crazy, and then he
leaned out of his window and screamed, "For the love of GOD! GO!
GO!" What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone
started honking! I just leaned out of my window and started wav-
ing and smiling at all these loving people. I even honked my horn
a few times to share in the love!
I saw one guy waving in a funny way with one finger stuck up


in the air. When I asked my teenage grandson what that meant, he
said that it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something.
Well, I've never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out the win-
dow and gave him the good luck sign back. My grandson burst out
laughing. Even he was enjoying this religious experience!
A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the
moment that they got out of their cars and started walking toward
me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but
then I.noticed the light had changed. So, I waved to all my sisters
and brothers, grinning, and drove on through the intersection. I
noticed I was the only car that got through the intersection before
the light changed again, and I felt sad that I had to leave them after
all the love we had shared, so I slowed the car down, leaned out
of the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one
last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks.
Love, Grandma
As a Christian, is that which I think I'm saying really saying
what I want to say? I may know what I'm saying, but do others?
Good and perceptive interacting communication is key. Without it,
who knows what messages we may transmit?


"Bad advice"
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Several'years. ago Paul Harvey wrote an article "They Gave Us
Some Awfully Bad Advice". As we are celebrated this month the
birth of our nation, I think this article bears repeating.
"They gave us some awfully bad advice. They told us that, if
we'd relax about sex, take our clothes off and not get uptight about
it, there would be no more sex crimes. So, we let it all hang out...
and the incidence of rape has increased 10% in one year. They
told us we'd been too tough.with criminals, that we should go
easy on them. So we went easy on them... and the rate of violent
crime increased 47% since, increasing 6% last year, is increasing
15% more this year. They told us that if we'd just be more gener-
ous with poor folks there'd be no. motive for stealing anymore.
We gave everybody a guaranteed income and robbery, burglary,
larceny, and auto theft are running 15% more this year. They said
that churches were "old fashioned", that they must modernize,
liberalize, rationalize, compromise. And those that compromised
most are shrinking fast. They insisted that our schools must boot
God out, and rely on enhancing jurior's intelligence. So we gradu-
ated a generation of juniors with refined intellects and undisci-
plined emotions ---- so school-age suicides have soared 92% in two
years. They told us alcoholism and drug addiction were sicknesses,
not crimes. Now we're gagging, choking, strangling on forbidden
fruit. They said, informal marriage was enough, so now the odds
are 5 to 4 your rapture will be ruptured and 2 of 7 that the next
baby will be born illegitimate. Who are these "They" who have
been misleading us? "They" are the materialist who clarify the fine
sciences. "They" mean well, but their intentions are paving the
road to HELL. Now I've quit commentating and gone to preach-
ing. I don't mean to, but I can't separate goodness and badness
from today's news and explain it. Every ugly headline in today's
newspapers-- and yesterday's and tomorrow's --- is somebody's
emotions gone out of whack. He might be smart as all get-out; but
if he's emotionally colorblind, he is an unguided missile destined
inevitably to self-destruct.
Space ship earth came with a book of instructions; let's see
what it says.... IT SAYS, We should not be slothful'in business. In
fact, it says he who does not work, let him not eat! IT SAYS, Don't
get drunk.. period!. IT SAYS: Don't steal anything --- anything! IT
SAYS, you sleep only with your own wife. IT SAYS, You don't do
what you "want", you do what you "ought", and for those whose
consciences are anesthetized, it specifies which is for which. In
other words, if that rule book were not divinely inspired, it would
still be a blueprint for an orderly existence. If it did not promise
life hereafter it still would contain the best formula.for a good life
here."
I just wonder what Mr. Harvey would think about what the
present administration and its "stimulas checks", "bail-outs" and
borrowing from future generations. Also what would he think
about Obama's statement that we are no longer a Christian nation
but a secular nation.

Coleman no longer Glades Central principal


As of July 22, she'll assume
role of West Area Director

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - It has been a memorable
two years at Glades Central High School, to
say the least.
Dr. Camille Coleman, who's been the
school's principal since 2007, will be giving
up her post, effective July 22.
The reasons for the move were not im-
mediately clear, but what's certain is that Dr.
Coleman did not get fired or demoted by the
School District of Palm Beach County.
As a matter of fact, Dr. Coleman has ac-
tually moved up the ranks to become the
school district's West Area Director.
There were both high and low moments
during Dr. Coleman's two-year tenure, but
she did reach her goal of bringing Glades
Central up from a F school this year.
In 2007 and 2008, Glades Central was


an F-rated school, which ranked it among
the worst schools in the state for those two
years.
But with the implementation of a truancy
package last year, plus the school's seeming-
ly intense focus on passing the FCAT exams,
Glades Central scored a 425 overall - just 10
points short of its first-ever C rating.
To receive a C, a school must net at least
435 points, according to the Florida Depart-
ment of Education.
Under Dr. Coleman's watch, the Classes
of 2008 and 2009 earned combined academ-
ic scholarship totals of $3.1 and $2.6 million,
respectively.
Those figures are said to be the two high-
est overall scholarship amounts the school
has ever received for its graduating classes.
Unfortunately, the school has some tough
moments during Dr. Coleman's time there,
particularly the 2008-2009 school year.
Glades Central suffered from experienc-
ing death to two of its students, with Aun-
genai Wilson and Willie J. Thomas passing
away within two months of each other.


On March 23, the 15-year-old Glades Cen-
tral High School student teenage reportedly
was shot dead at his home that night.
Thomas had reportedly suffered a fatal
gunshot wound to his torso area as a result
of the shooting.
And on May 7, just one week before she
was set to graduate from high school, Wil-
son passed away from an undisclosed con-
dition.
"The lives that have been lost impact our
students greatly," Dr. Coleman said at a May
1 march/rally event in Belle Glade.
"We are recommitting to making sure
our students are safe."
Dr. Coleman's commitment to sfu-
dent safety and academic success has not
changed, but she'll now be able to focus on
those on a wider range.
Beginning next week, her duties will be
to work closely with each school in the area
that's under Title I protection.
Title I, by definition, is a Federal aid pro-
gram in which schools can receive supple-
mental funding and instruction for students


who are deemed to be economically and/or
academically disadvantaged.
No other information about the move
was immediately available.
S"It's all about change," said Kevin Wright,
who is the high school's magnet secretary.
"Dr. Coleman was good at what she did
and she really had all the kids at heart. We
have to accept whatever the change is."
Dr. Coleman said she plans to continue
working with the high school, as her new
office will be housed there.
The new principal will be Anthony An-
derson, who will be transferring from Eagles
Landing Middle School in Boca Raton.
Anderson also previously served as an
elementary school principal, according to
.Coleman.
"I .am forever committed to seeing the
Glades and Glades Central continue to excel
academically, no matter what my job title or
job location is," Coleman said in a text mes-
sage statement.

taught some of the youngsters how to get off
the scrimmage line in man and press cover-
age.
In addition to showing the kids how to
run precise routes like the out and the post
- two of Benjamin's best traits in his game -
the speedy Miami receiver and former Glades
Central standout talked to them about the
importance of staying out of trouble and
having a solid education.
Benjamin is a living testament of that,
as he graduated from Glades Central High
School with a 3.0 grade point average (GPA)
in 2008 and was never known to get in trou-
ble as a kid himself.
Phillips, who's entering his senior season
at Miami, taught the Glades Glen, Okeecho-


bee Center and Pahokee defensive backs
how to play man-to-man coverage, jam
wide receivers and display a proper back-
pedaling form used to become an effective
defender.
Pierre said that all the kids listened in-
tently to each word Benjamin, Phillips and
others said to them.
The Glades Glen coach was appreciative
of the fact that four of the 23 UM players who
appeared hail right from the Muck - Benja-
min, Berry and Phillips (Glades Central) and
Regis (Pahokee).
"It was something we needed to hap-
pen," Pierre said of the UM-hosted camp.
"The kids need to know they could make
it to college if they just work hard and think
positive."
After the football drills and pep talk ses-
sions from the UM players, it was on to the
Pioneer Park field for some flag football


games.
Three games were held, with the
Okeechobee Center Bulldogs, Pahokee
Baby Blue Devils and Glades Glen Browns
each playing in two of them.
Glades Glen won both of their contests,
besting Okeechobee Center and Pahokee.
Okeechobee Center defeated Pahokee in
the other game.
Tim Harris, Miami's senior program co-
ordinator for head coach Randy Shannon,
came away impressed by what the college
program did over the weekend in Belle
Glade.
"The players gave a nice, strong message
to the community," Harris said of his UM
athletes.
"We felt like it served a positive purpose
for the kids in the Glades communities, in
terms of giving them a nice identity."
Harris said his Miami team is 'looking for-


ward to do it again next year.'
And he's adamant the camp's future at-
tendance will grow in part by this year's at-
tendees spreading the word out to their fel-
low peers.
"We're trying to touch the lives of these
kids as much as we can," Harris said.
"We hope they keep their drive alive."
Note:'The University of Miami commu-
nity outreach efforts extended to Boynton
Beach last weekend as well.
UM players will reportedly be touring
various locations throughout the summer
