A $25,000 generator

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - A 34-year-old man
is currently sitting in jail on felony
theft charges.
Authorities have identified Wil-
liam J. Moore, of Pahokee, as a sus-
pect in an interstate theft scheme,
that alleges robbery of U.S. Sugar
property.
According to an probable cause
affidavit provided by the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO), deputies began investiga-
tion the now-defunct Bryant Sugar
Mill in reference to possible theft of
a generator.
Two deputies were able to spot
the alleged theft on May 16 - just
hours after the suspect reportedly
stole a RSC Equipment Rental gen-
erator that was the property of U.S.
Sugar.
It was three days after the initial
theft discovery - May 19, to be ex-
act - that pertinent information was
given to PBSO deputies on the gen-

Detectives from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office (PBSO) are working an investigation
on the tragic crash scene, which occurred Tuesday morning on S.R. 80.


PBSO worker dies in canal


Victim's vehicle loses
control on S.R. 80

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES - A 58-year-old em-
ployee from the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
was killed in a crash during the
early hours of Tuesday, Sep. 1..
According to a release from
the PBSO, the unidentified victim
veered off into a canal near Belle
Glade at about 6:15 a.m.
It was revealed that the victim
was driving a 2008 Chevrolet se-
dan as he was headed eastbound
on State Road 80.


During the fateful morn-
ing, when the victim reportedly
reached two miles east of Hatton
Highway, he failed to steer his car
toward the very mild right curve
existing on the roadway.
When that happened, the
Chevrolet subsequently entered
partially on the center median of
S.R. 80, causing a clockwise rota-
tion in a southeastern direction.
As the victim's vehicle crossed
both eastbound lanes on S.R. 80,
it reached the highway's south
shoulder and then rolled over
into a nearby canal.
With the car landing in the ca-
nal parallel to S.R. 80, paramedics
from the Palm Beach County Fire


Rescue were later able to get the
victim out of the murky waters.
Unfortunately, as the victim
was transported to Delray Medi-
cal Center via Trauma Hawk for
observation, he was pronounced
dead at the hospital.
Teri Barbera, the PBSO spokes-
woman, said the victim's name
will not be released until his fam-
ily has been notified of the tragic
accident.
No other information was
made immediately available in
relation to the crash, as the PBSO
is currently conducting an investi-
gation of the fatality.

Hot 25 Suver Seniors list released


INI/Naji Tobias
Glades Central's L.J. Thomas, the paper's first Hot 25 Super Seniors quarterback selection, recorded 357 total yards
(passing and rushing) in the Raiders 14-6 loss to Carol City in the Aug. 29 kickoff classic game in Miami.


Pahokee Blue Devils make
up about half of INI
Florida's All-Star picks

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION - Independent
Newspapers Inc. is proud to announce its
selection for the "Hot 25 Super Seniors" all-
star football team.
The qualifications are straightforward:
A total of 25 high school senior football
players from the South Lake area's five
teams - Moore Haven, Clewiston, Glades
Central, Glades Day and Pahokee - were se-
lected based on this set of criteria:
Playing experience (at least one
year at position)
Potential positive impact on a team's
season
Possibility of playing college foot-
ball in 2010 and beyond
Now, this list was not easy to compile,
as it took a few weeks of discussion, brain-
storming, and thought to make sure that the
Hot 25 Super Seniors reflected the best of
the area.
In actuality, there were well over 30 se-
niors in the area that were considered for
the 'Early Season' Super Senior selections.
With that being said, the Hot 25 list will
be updated midseason (after the Week 6
games) and at the season's end (after the
Week 11 games).
There are no spots guaranteed for any-
one throughout the season, which makes it
that much more important for each player
to give his best effort in each game.
The selection format consists of 11 Su-
per Seniors for offense and defense, respec-
tively.
That makes it 22 overall.
But the list wouldn't be complete with-
out the area's top three specialty players
- those picks are for players who have the
ability to excel at more than one position on
the field.
Without further ado; here are.your Hot 25
Super Seniors:


Offense
QB Leron Thomas (Glades Central)
RB Antwon Chisolin (Glades Cen-
tral)
RB Fred Hall (Moore Haven)
WR Chris Dunkley (Pahokee)
WR Dennis Hall (Pahokee)
WR Fred Pickett (Pahokee)
C Doral Willis (Pahokee)
LT Willis Bowles (Pahokee)
RT Tony Kibler (Glades Day)
RG Lamarcus Thicklin (Clewiston)
LG Antonio Williams (Clewiston)
Defense
CB Merill Noel (Pahokee)
CB Tavares Crawford (Glades Cen-
tral)
FS Raheam Buxton (Pahokee)
SS Travis Bell (Glades Central)
OLB Zachary Allen (Pahokee)
OLB Corey Hill (Pahokee)
MLB Dillon Irey (Clewiston)
DE Willie Huggins (Clewiston)
DE Julio Ramos (Clewiston)


DT Richard Ash (Pahokee)
DT Antonio Ford (Pahokee)
Specialty Players
ATH Greg Dent (Glades Central)
WR/QB De'Joshua Johnson (Paho-
kee)
WR/CB Damian Smith (Clewiston)
Notations: QB - quarterback, RB -
running back, WR - wide receiver, ATH
- athlete, LG - left guard, RG - right
guard, LT - left tackle, RT - right tackle,
C - center, CB - cornerback, FS - free
safety, SS - strong safety, OLB - outside
linebacker, MLB - middle linebacker,
DE - defensive end, DT - defensive
tackle
In all, 12 Pahokee players were selected,
with six from Clewiston and five from Glades
Central. One senior each from Moore Haven
and Glades Day made the list.

information on each of INI Florida's Hot 25
Super Senior picks.

H.S. football to air Friday nights on Sugar 900 AM


'Game Day on the Muck' live
from Clewiston on
Thursday, starting today

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION - WSWN-Sugar
900 AM radio station, an area broadcasting,
station, will begin bringing high school foot-
ball games to its programming.
Beginning tomorrow night, you won't ac-
tually have to attend a game to get the high
school football experience -- if for some rea-
son you can't make it to the games, you can
listen to the broadcast on the radio or on the
Internet.
New additions to Sugar 900's
radio coverage
A nifty addition to the radio experience
this season, according to Sugar 900 radio an-
alyst Mike D, is that fans will have access to.
every competitive game each Friday night.
What that means is if, for example, Glades
Central is blowing out Dwyer by a 24-0 score
at halftime tomorrow night, Sugar 900 will
switch its broadcast to a more competitive
game from either Pahokee, Clewiston or
Glades Day.


If any team is either up or down by three
touchdowns, that game will be swapped for
a closer one.
Sugar 900 will provide listeners live in-
game updates from-the area's teams every
half-quarter.
"The listeners will be getting all the live
information as it happens from all of our
area football programs," Mike D said of the
area's new broadcasting game feature.
"We'll be in position to make sure-our
listeners feel like they're right at the game
each week."
The commentary is also available online,
via www.florida-cast.com.
If you visit the website, you'll notice that
the broadcast of Glades Day's kickoff clas-
sic game against John Carroll aired live last
Friday night.
And if you take a scroll through the ar-
chives, you'll get to hear games from last
season such as Pahokee's Class 2B state
championship game and Glades Central's
playoff game against Monsignor Pace (Mi-
ami).
Also new this year is the weekly live
broadcast on Thursday evenings - the day
before each area game.
Entitled 'Game Day on the Muck', Mike D
and his broadcasting crew will be airing live
on Sugar 900 from 5:30-7 p.m.


The location of the broadcast will be at
Sonny's BBQ in Clewiston.
Speaking of Clewiston, Mike D said that
Sugar 900 AM has picked up the Tigers
games for the foreseeable future.
Clewiston fans will continue to enjoy
commentary from play-by-play analyst
Smoking Joe Whitehead, who has been at
the helm for more than 25 years.
He'll be joined by John Polhill, who will
be the color commentator for the Clewiston
Tigers, and Mike D.
It'll be like 'John Madden, Al Michaels
and Bob Costas on the radio together,' joked
Mike D.
"We feel there was too much history in
Clewiston for the area not to be represented
in radio," he said.
"We know how important football is in
our area, so we respect the tradition that's in
Clewiston as well."

Each scheduled game, known to Sugar
900 as the 'Game of the Week,' will feature
play-by-play and color commentary from
Mike D and Pahokee Blue Devils legend
Rickey Jackson.
Sugar 900 will not be broadcasting any
games for the Moore Haven Terriers this sea-
son.
Nonetheless, this season features more
options than ever before, which should
make for a lively Friday night experience re-
gardless of where you're at.
"They (the listeners) just have to stay
glued to the radio," said Mike D. "I think
they're going to love our format."

Raiders doomed by miscues in loss to Carol City


Moore Haven and Glades
Day win big

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MIAMI - It just didn't happen.
The Glades Central Raiders, for some rea-
son, weren't themselves in their 14-6 loss to
Carol City (Miami).
L.J. Thomas, the starting quarterback,
statistically had a better-than-average game,
with 309 passing yards (357 overall) and
threw for a touchdown.
That score came on Glades Central's very
first drive - a two-play, 81-yard run that took
only 29 seconds.
The play, which came at 8:11 in the first
quarter, was a 45-yard strike to teammate
Greg Dent, who finished with two catches
for 69 yards in the game.
Shockingly, Glades Central never reached
the goal line again, though they would get
close several more times.
Thomas on Glades Central's inability to
find a consistent rhythm on offense:
"We started out with a bang, but our of-
fense just didn't capitalizeon the opportuni-
ties we had in the game."
Though there were sparks of excellence
with the wide receivers - Glades Central's 6-6
receiver, Kevin Benjamin, had five catches
for 108 yards in just two quarters - Thomas
did throw two interceptions, one of which
appeared to be a pass completion.
Driving toward Carol City's end zone in
the second quarter, with 1:47 left, Thomas
lobbed a 54-yard pass to Demetrius Evans to
the Chiefs 23-yard line.
Inexplicably, as Evans caught the ball,
Carol City cornerback Troy Johnson some-
how stripped the ball right from his hands
as the catch is made. -
That play was ruled an interception, kill-
ing a potential scoring drive.
At halftime, Glades Central was down 7-6
to Carol City.
The Chiefs took the one-point lead off
a 1-yard run from freshman running back
Bramond Snell, who methodically led Carol
City on a 13-play, 69-yard drive, answering
Glades Central's early score in the process.


Interestingly, though, Glades Central's
defense performed admirably, given the fact
they spent the vast majority of the game on
the field.
The Raiders defense, though allowing a
6-yard touchdown pass early in the second
half on a Devonte Mathis pass to Ruben
Lawhorn, were stingy and ferocious.
Glades Central's defenders allowed just
277 total yards and registered five sacks on
Mathis, with two each by rising underclass-
men William Likely and Robert Way.
"The defense did their part, we [the of-
fense] just didn't help them enough," Thom-
as said.
Thomas's other'interception, meanwhile,
came with 6:38 left in the fourth quarter.
It looked like he threw a second down
pass right to Carol City cornerback Kenyatta
Marion, which made Thomas visibly and
uncharacteristically frustrated right after the
play.
"After I threw that second pick, I thought
the game was over for us," Thomas said.
"But when we got the ball back again, it
looked to be a big turnaround for us as we
were driving down the field."
.After a Carol City punt, Glades Central
seemed primed to march down the field 85
yards with just 4:28 left.
Thomas completed four passes on that
drive, including a 30-yarder to Benjamin.
But it came down to the final two min-
utes, as Antwon Chisolm (11 carries, 52
yards) needed just one yard to net a first
down at the Chiefs 13.
With 51.3 seconds left, Carol City's run
defense put the brakes on Glades Central's
final drive as they stuffed Chisolm on a
fourth-and-1 play.
That effectively sealed the upset win for
Carol City, a Class 6A team who's in the
same district as Northwestern (Miami) and
Central (Miami).
"Glades Central is one of the best teams
in the state," said Mathis, who went 13-24
with 145 yards, one touchdown and no in-
terceptions. "Coach [Harold Barnwell] told
us how disciplined Glades Central was and
he told us not to take them lightly. After they
scored on the first two plays of the game, we
knew we had to bounce back. We couldn't
hold our heads down because there was a

whole game left after that."
Jessie Hester, Glades Central's head
coach, provided his assessment on the
game.
"L.J. had a really good game, but the re-
ceivers didn't help him at all," Hester said.
"They [the wide receivers] ran the wrong
routes and they didn't execute. But if we
played 100 games, collectively, I think our
receivers would play a lot better than that."
As for Glades Central's chances against
Dwyer tomorrow night?
"Our receivers, collectively, will never
have another game like that," Hester said
emphatically. "Our offense wasn't focused
against Carol City, but they'll do a lot better
against Dwyer. Hopefully, they'll write that
memory out of peoples' minds."
Glades Central also lost two fumbles,
with one each from Thomas and Dent.
Moore Haven 48, Coral Springs
Christian 6: Terriers quarterback Keonte
White, a junior, led the team with 135 yards
passing in the win.
White went 3-for-4 with a touchdown to
Lascelle Humphrey (two catches, 66 yards)
in the game.
Fred Hall .registered 11 carries for 154
yards and two touchdowns, while White
added five carries, 96 yards and three rush-
ing scores of his own.
Vinton Lewis scored a touchdown on
just three carries, as he tacked on 100 rush-


ing yards in the game.
The Terriers offense, as a whole, rushed
for 389 yards and 524 overall.
The Moore Haven defense allowed just
155 total yards, with the defensive backs giv-
ing up just eight pass yards.
Glades Day 42, John Carroll 3: Gators
sophomore quarterback Tanner Redish was
13-for-17 with 150 yards, one touchdown
and no interceptions in the blowout win.
Eaton Spence caught a 6-yard touchdown
from Redish, while Kelvin Taylor scored two
rushing touchdowns and had 140 yards on
the ground.
Glades Day's defensive backs shined the
brightest, meanwhile, as Clint Johnson and
Ricky Christmas each returned interceptions
for touchdowns in the game.
Spence caught Glades Day's third defen-
sive pick in the fourth quarter, while Josh
Thornton locked down John Carroll's wide-
outs to the point no balls were thrown his
way.

Clewiston Tigers drop Kickoff Classic Game


By Jeff Barwick
Clewiston journeyed to Martin County
South Fork on Friday and the ranked Class
4A Bulldogs were more than a handful for
the Tigers.
While Clewiston wound up on the short
end of the 21-7 score, the Tigers played hard
and made a respectable showing.
The contest was delayed for about 20
minutes due to lightning in the area.
The first quarter was marked by two of-
fensive possessions by each team, all of
which ended in punts.
Early in the second, the Bulldogs put to-
gether a five play, 62 yard drive with tailback
Zach Fisher carrying for the final 3 yards.
The drive ws sustained by two quarter-
back keeper plays for 22 yards each.
The extra point kick was low.
The Tigers essentially handed the Bull-
dogs their other second quarter score when
punter Randy Massie dipped down to scoop
up a low punt snap and let his knee touch
the ground.
The Bulldogs took possession at the Tiger
5-yard line and took only two snaps to con-
vert for the score.
Then quarterback Anthony Tellex ran a
keeper off the left side for a two point con-
version and a 14-0 South Fork advantage.
Clewiston took the kickoff and finally got
the offense going.
Junior quarterback Andres Rios hit wide-


out James Bigham for a 11-yard gain and
then Rios had runs of 13 and 10 yards.
Two plays later, Rios fired a strike to flank-
er Damion Smith on a slant pattern for a 14-
yard touchdown play with only 51 seconds
remaining in the first half.
Bryant Richardson converted the point
after.
Clewiston played spirited ball in the sec-
ond half and forced two Bulldog fumbles in
the third period.
Defensive end Landon McDuffie got the
first recovery and the other was by lineback-
er Edrick Crosby.
Zach Fisher got the Bulldog's final touch-
down on a 48-yard scamper with 2:46 left in
the game.
The Tigers mounted another scoring
drive after that but were finally stopped at
the South Fork 15 yard line with less than a
minute left in the contest.
Although not winning, the Class 2B Ti-
gers were outmatched in size and numbers
but put forth a good effort.
Rios showed excellent field presence
and when under pressure on passing plays
showed that he knew how to take off and
make something out of the play.
Wideout Damion Smith is a speed mer-
.chant and has great skills on kickoff returns
and should provide some Tiger excitement
during the regular season.
At running back, the Tigers have depth


with Chris Herring, sophomore Chauncey
Thicklin and freshman Virthavious Robin-
son.
Defensively, the Tigers should make a re-
spectable showing this season.
Smith is a seasoned cornerback.
Linebackers Crosby, Chris Herring, Dillon
Irey and Fred Washington are all veterans.
Linemen Antonio Williams, LaMarcus
Thicklin and Willie Huggins are also return-
ees with great size and play on both sides of
the ball when needed.
Tight ends Darius Redd and Landon
McDuffie, both sophomores, are both im-
pressive in size and skills and also play both
ways.
The Tigers open their regular season this
Friday night at Cane Field as they host'peren-
nial foe Plantation American Heritage in a
non-district game. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.

COP officers graduate from training course
I -,


15 PBSO officers earn
certifications to further
assist in emergencies

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES - Timing is critical.
It can literally mean life or death in the
event an emergency situation arises.
In the case of Alvin Armstrong, Carol
Lawrence and Barbara Saddler, a recent
training session has taught them the impor-
tance of that fact.
All three individuals come from different
backgrounds, but there's one thing that links
them together.
They have decided to join the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO) as volunteers
with the Citizens Observer Patrol (COP) pro-
gram.
And it's be a positively eye-opening expe-
rience for them, to say the least.
For the past several weeks, the three took
part in a 24-hour long volunteer emergency
response team (VERT) course that's geared
toward safety preparedness.
In the training session, the COP volun-
teers learned how to properly administer
first-aid and CPR on individuals in need of
the services.
They were also able to learn a variety of
ways to control their emotions in the case of
an emergency. In addition, the COP volun-
teers gained knowledge of what a triage is.
It's an indicator of a victim's condition in
a tape format. For example, if the victim in
question is classified as 'yellow', then he's
considered ambulatory.
In other words, he can walk.
A 'red' tape rating means the victim is in
critical condition. More seriously, if the triage
tape indicates 'black' for the individual, that
most likely means he's dead.
"Our mission is to help as many people
as we can in any kind of emergency," Sad-
dler said.
Saddler, who volunteers three hours per
week of her time to the PBSO, made it her
priority to take in and understand everything
she could in the training so if an emergency
occurs anytime soon, she'll be ready to as-
sist her fellow citizens as needed.
Saddler, who's he COP's District Five Ser-


geant, offers some more details of the VERT
training session she participated in.
"If an officer is working a crime scene,
then we'll be out there to assist in traffic con-
trol," Saddler-said of the trained COP volun-
teers. "We're trained to preserve the perim-
eters of the emergency situations at hand."
Lawrence, who has been a COP volun-
teer for the last 13 years, is the District Five
major.
Originally from the Royal Palm Beach
area, Lawrence has offered her experiences
and services to Saddler and Armstrong so
they'll know everything that's needed to be-
come effective in their positions.
One thing Lawrence takes pride in is the
knowledge of helping an elderly individual
when an emergency situation arises.
She offers her take on the best way to as-
sist in this particular instance.
"If we're on a mission to find the elderly,
we know that we need to do it as soon as
possible," Lawrence said. "If it's someone
with Alzheimer's, we'll know that the person
has a tendency to go to the'right if they're on
a dead-end street. That individual tends to
be drawn to water as well."
That's only part of the valuable infor-
mation absorbed throughout the extensive.
training.
Armstrong, at 89 years old, is a longtime
Pahokee resident. As a magician and a pho-
tographer, the elderly man decided to try
something new about eight months ago.
Joining the COP program has been a pos-
itive experience for Armstrong, as he feels
good about being a more productive citizen
now than in years past, perhaps.
Along with Saddler and Lawrence, he
was able to take part in a 16-hour parking
enforcement course on Friday, Aug. 21.
On that relatively hot morning, the three
COP volunteers rode their patrol cars to the
Save-A-Lot parking lot in Pahokee.
There, they carefully sized up the area to
see if any vehicles had committed parking
violations.
The COP volunteers spotted a minivan in
a handicapped parking spot. They wanted
to make sure the driver was in compliance
with the traffic law, so the vehicle's handi-
capped placard was checked.
If the state-issued identification matches
the individual's driver license number, then
the COPs will determine that it's in compli-

On Wednesday, Aug. 26, a total of 15 PBSO Citizen Observer Patrol (COP) vol-
unteers graduated from a 24-hour Volunteer Energency Response Team (VERT)
training class. The Glades Area VERT graduates from left are: Barbara Saddler
w/Shae, Mark Sutterfield Sr., Isaac Smith, Mrs. Martinez, Yesenia Baltazar w/
daughters, Yvonne Sutterfield, Jose Ramos, Lorenzo Baltazar, Antonia Grana-
dos, Alejandra Vazquez, Alvin Armstrong and Carol Lawrence.


ance.
However, if both don't match each other,
the driver would be slapped with a $336
ticket.
"If a child is driving his mother's car with
her handicapped placard, then she has to be
in the car with him," Lawrence said. "If not,
then he's going to get a ticket." -
A parking violation in a fire lane nets a
$30 fine. Violators have 10 days from the
ticket issuance date to pay it either in court
or by mail.
Failure to address that issue results in
further penalties, up to and including court
costs and driver's license penalties.
"As the eyes and ears of the sheriff's of-.
fice, I like the training and education I get
from this experience," Armstrong said of
all what he's learned from the sessions. "I
thought it was a good opportunity for peo-
ple like me to fill in for the deputies and free
up some of their time."
As the COPs inched closer to graduation,
they spent 12 hours on the road with a certi-
fied parking enforcement specialist on that
Friday. The first four hours were in Belle
Glade on Aug. 15, with stops at the Winn-
Dixie and U-Save parking lots.
The eight hours spent in Pahokee on Aug.
21, meanwhile, was followed by two hours
each in Belle Glade and South Bay.
With the course being-completed, the


COP volunteers later took an examination
on what they learned. If they pass, then
they're classified as parking enforcement
specialist.
Well, the three can say they are now, af-
ter graduating from the COP's VERT class on
Wednesday, Aug. 26.
They were part of 15 COP volunteers from
the areas of Pahokee, Belle Glade and South
Bay that enjoyed the accomplishment.
PBSO Deputy Mark Sutterfield, the COP
liaison for District Five, was the CERT class
instructor.
"Because we have an isolated area here,
we thought it was a great idea to have our
own VERT team to better serve the Glades
citizens," Sutterfield said.
With 30 COP volunteers in total for the
Glades area, Sutterfield sees the PBSO as a
more efficient and effective operation in the
future.
For one thing, it will free up time for PBSO
leaders such as District Five Captain Larry
Easton, District Five Lieutenant Christopher
Keane, District 11 Lieutenant Rob Sandt and
District 12 Reinaldo Alonso, among others.
And it will be a relief to the area's citizens
as well.
In essence, it's a streamlined effort to
provide better services for the residents of
the Glades.

Taking Walk in the Past: A Prelude to Wai


Growing conflicts between
famished Seminoles and the
people who took control of
their lands


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The scrub cattle moved unwarily toward
a familiar oak hammock, whose cool shad-
ows provided them rest and escape from the
heat of the noon sun.
As the herd neared the hammock, a heif-
er playfully broke away, kicking, frolicking,
and romping across the dry, prairie grasses.
The animal's youthful energy quickly
carried it past the hammock to an isolated
palmetto head, where a movement caught
its eye.
The naive and impetuous, young heifer
stopped and gazed with curiosity at the
strange creatures that lay partly concealed
behind the foliage.
A Seminole rose from the shadows of the
palmetto fronds, releasing a steel tipped ar-
row from his bow that hissed like a snake,
before finding its mark in the young cow's
side.
The arrow struck with a thud burying
itself, until only the wild turkey feathers re-
mained exposed.
The heifer leaped into the air, staggered,
then collapsed on the ground.
A soft bellow escaped the death, stricken
animal as the Seminole Indian quickly cut its
throat and began the task of butchering.
A long, sharp blade of Spanish steel cut
through hide and flesh as the Indian worked
quickly to quarter the animal.
One blade stroke cut across dark brand
marks, burnt deep into the hide, indicating
ownership.
The brand also represented 39 strokes
with a whip, to any Seminole, who was fool-
ish enough to get caught committing such
an act of thievery.
The ole saying, "two wrongs don't make
a right" is very true.
The Americans stole Florida lands from
the Seminoles, who then stole cattle from
the Americans.
Both Americans and Seminoles justified
their actions, regardless of the consequenc-
es to their people.
It is time to "Take a Walk in The Past" and
read about the events that led to the Second
Seminole Indian War.
The Treaty of Moultrie Creek in 1823 es-
tablished small reservations on the Apala-
chicola River and one large reservation that
started north of Ocala and extended south
of Peace River.
Most of the Seminoles were relocated to
the large reservation, which had poor lands
that hardly sustained them.
Florida Governor DuVal and other gov-
ernment officials requested additional lands
for the Seminoles.
SA fertile area called Big Swamp was
added, increasing the reservation by 15 per-

eyv fertile lands may have changed
holes food problems, were it not for
tLiedughts that descended on the South-


east in the mid 1820s ..
The droughts impacted everyone who
was dependent on the soil, both Indian and
settler.
The Seminole fared worst during this pe-
riod because they were confined to reserva-
tions whose lands were dry and brown.
The droughts destroyedreservation crops,
forcing the Seminoles to become totally de-
pendent on the food subsidies allocated to
them in the Treaty of Moultrie Creek.
The subsidies were originally planned to
supplement the Seminoles only during their
first resettlement year on the reservations.
It was assumed that after the first year, the
Seminoles would be self-sufficient again.
The situation became only bleaker be-
cause the food subsidies weren't sufficient
to feed the starving Seminoles.
Military official, General Brooke, stated in
his report to Washington that Indians were
starving to death on the reservations.
The governor, Indian agency, and military
officials in Florida, interacted on the SemiL
noles' behalf.
They requested additional subsidies, plus
extended aid to the Seminoles after the first
year of resettlement expired.
The wheels turned slow in Washington,
but aid finally came.
In the meantime, many famished Semi-
noles had .become desperate and crossed
the reservation boundaries in search of
food.
The Florida frontier had no fences, so
livestock roamed free.
Cattle soon became prey for the starving
Indians.
White settlers were alarmed to see the
Indians outside the reservation.
Some were outraged when they discov-
ered the butchered carcasses of their free
roaming cattle and were ready to fight the
Seminoles; others were more sympathetic
to the Seminoles plight, feeding hungry fam-
ilies that stopped at their homesteads.
Florida officials, administrating the Semi-
nole Nation, soon became sandwiched be-
tween the Seminole and the settler.
The settler's loss of livestock generated
legitimate complaints, while starving Indi-
ans preying 6n the settler's livestock gener-
ated reasonable cause.
It was "Catch 22," so diplomacy became
the weapon of choice for the American of-
ficials in charge, who tried in every way to
avert bloodshed on the Florida frontier.
The growing issues between settlers and
Indians weren't restricted to the depletion of
livestock.
In 1827 and 1828, Governor DuVal al-
lowed the famishing Indians to travel out-
side the southern reservation boundaries
and fish on the west coast.
The fisheries along the Gulf coast were
either Spanish or had contact with the Span-
ish fishermen from Cuba.
Cuban fishermen brought trade goods
from Cuba to trade with the Indians, and
some of those trade goods included mus-
kets, powder andilead.
The reservation's inland boundaries set
in the Treaty of Moultrie Creek were estab-
lished to discourage trade between the Sem-
inoles and Cubans.
Needless to say, DuVal received much flak

from settlers and government officials, who
opposed Seminoles wandering outside the
reservations and trading with the Cubans.
Slavery was another source of friction be-
tween the Americans and Seminoles.
. Fugitive slaves continued to live among
the Seminoles, much to the annoyance of
slaveholders, who demanded they be turned
over to their rightful slave owners.
However, the slave problem was far
more complex than black runaways fleeing
from their masters and seeking shelter with
the Seminole Indians in Florida.
True, there were a lot of runaway slaves
living in Florida, but there were also many
free blacks in Florida.
Some of the free blacks were birthed un-
der the-Spanish flag, while others had gained
their freedom during the War of 1812, fight-
ing for the English.
There was also the problem of how to
deal with Seminoles that purchased black
slaves.
How would they be compensated, if they
gave up their slaves?
Last but not least, what was the fate of
children conceived by free blacks that had
married Seminoles?
To resolve some of the Indian problems,
the Florida government passed laws to help
keep interaction between American citizens
and Seminoles at a minimal.
In 1827, the Florida Legislative Council
passed an act to stop American citizens from
trespassing on reservation lands.
The act also required traders to have a
state license to trade with Indians at govern-
ment designated points.
Anyone caught breaking these laws
would be dealt with severely.
One clause in the act was aimed at the
Seminoles.
It stated that aiding a runaway slave was
a crime punishable by death.
That same year the council passed an-
other act, which stated that Indians found
outside the reservations could be given 39
lashes by the local justice.
Washington grew alarmed at the Semi-
nole and settler conflicts in Florida, so they
-appointed Colonel Clinch the responsibility'
of keeping peace between the Indians and
settlers.
Clinch centralized his troops around the
problem areas where Seminoles and settlers
collided.
- He stationed troops near the Aucilla River
to maintain order, west of the Suwannee,
while other troops were stationed near St.
Augustine to maintain order in the east.
Additional troops were stationed at Tam-
pa Bay (Fort Brooke) and Ocala (Fort King).
The military's role was to maintain peace
on the Florida frontier territories at all cost.
With few soldiers, it was essential that the
commanders at the different posts be able to
communicate and move troops in a timely
manner, should a crisis develop.
It was imperative that a network of roads
be constructed to reduce travel time be-
tween forts.
The many roads were primitive by to-
day's standards and in some areas were no
wider than a foot path.
Several of the roads were quite long and
required much labor.


The road from St. Augustine to Pensacola'_
was over three hundred miles long, while
the road from Fort Brooke (Tampa Bay) to
Fort King (Ocala) was 125 miles long.
The nation's capital was satisfied with the
military changes, but knew the old issue of
the "Indian problem" was not going away.
Officials in Washington were receiving
signed petitions from Florida settlers, com-
munities and even the Florida Legislative
Council, requesting Seminole removal from
Florida.
The United States concluded that the
Seminole had to go, if there was to be peace
in Florida.
In 1827, Joseph M. White, the Florida Ter-
ritorial delegate, attempted to sell the Semi-
noles on the notion of moving west
He.told them the President of the United
States was offering a better country, plus
much more money and provisions, if they
were willing to relocate west.
SThe Seminoles were told the new coun-
try was a land of milk and honey.
I bet those wily Seminoles wondered
why the Americans weren't already staking
out their land claims on such a fine place!
Mr. White saved the best for last with a
sales pitch that even the ole wily Seminole
couldn't afford to decline.
He said, "Your Great White Father will
send soldiers and destroy your towns, if your
bad men do wrong in the future."
Somehow those few words sealed the
deal.
The Seminole Nation knew the handwrit-
ing was on the wall and thattime was run-
ning out for them.
In 1828, five important chiefs signified to
Indian agent Gad Humpreys that they would
send a group of Seminoles to the western
country to scope out the land.

South Florida Water Management District
Notice of Agency Action
The South Florida Water Management District gives notice of its Agency
Action for an Environmental Resource Permit Modification of a surface wa-
ter management system to serve approximately 13,234 acres of agricultu-
ral development known as McDaniel Ranch Basin D to be issued McDaniel
Ranch (McDaniel Ranch Basin D, 32800 County Road #833, Clewiston, FL
33440). Environmental Resource Construction/Operation Permit No.
26-00623-P is in response to application number 090515-16 to reduce the
size of pre treatment area PT-D2 by 36.6 acres in order to avoid an identi-
fled archeological site and to incorporate the as-built elevations for drain-
age structures W-D1, W-D2 and W-D1011A, all within Basin D of the
McDaniel Ranch agricultural development. The project will drain into the
North Feeder Canal. The permit is subject to 19 general and 14 special
conditions. The Project is located in southeastern Hendry County on ei-
ther side of County Road 833 in Sections 1-5, 8-16, 22-27, and 34-36,
Township 47 South, Range 33 East. The Project is bordered by the Deer
Fence Canal on the north, the North Feeder (L-28 Canal) on the southeast.
The Permit and Staff Report issued July 20, 2009, including general and
special conditions to provide reasonable assurances that the project meets
SFWMD statutes and rules, can be obtained by contacting Elizabeth Veguil-
la, Deputy Clerk, during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at 3301 Gun Club Road,
West Palm Beach, FL 33406 or by telephone at (561) 686-8800 extension
6739.
The Districts agency action as set forth in the staff reports shall become
final unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes before the deadline for
filing a petition. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth
below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the District=s per-
mitting decision may petition for an. administrative proceeding (hearing)
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition
must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received)
in the Office of the Clerk at the SFWMD Headquarters at 3301 Gun Club
Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33406. Pursuant to Rule 28-106.104 Fla. Ad-
min. Code, any documents received after 5:00 p.m. shall be filed as of 8:00
a.m. on the next regular business day. Flings y e-mail will not be accept-
ed. A copy of the Petition must also be mailed at the time of iling to the
persons named above at the address indicated. Failure to file a petition
within the 21 days of publication of notice, or other receipt of the written
notice, whichever first occurs first, constitutes a waiver of any right such
person has to an administrative determination (hearing) pursuant to Sec-
ons 120.569 and 120.57, Fla. Stat. as provided by Subsection
28-106.11(4) Ra. Admin. Code. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the pe-
tition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the District=s action
is based must contain the Information set forth in Rule 28-106.201(2), Fla.
Admin. Code, including:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency=s
file or identification number, if known;
b) The name, address, address, and telephone number of the petitioner,
te name, address, and telephone number of the petiioner=s represen-
tative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during! the
course of me proceeding, and an explanation of how the petitioners
substantial interests will be affected-by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the
agency decision;
(d) statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none
the petition must so indicate;
(e)A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules
and statutes which entire the petitioner to relief; and
(f) A demand for relief. '
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the District=s
achon 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, Fla. Admin. Code. Because the administrative hearing process
is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means
that the Districts final action may be different from the position taken by it
in this notice.
In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may
elect to pursue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with
the District a mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (.e.,
the applicant, the District, and any person who has filed a timely and suffi-
cent petition for a hearing). The agreement must contain all the Informa-
tion required by Rule 28-106.404 Fla. Admin. Code. The agreement must
be received in the District Office of the Clerk, within ten days after the
deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above.

What about "Your


oafting


ii ~'��


House"?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
At another time, much like our
own, Genesis 6:5 says "And God
saw that the wickedness of man was
great in the earth, and that every
imagination of the thoughts of his
heart was only evil continually."
God told Noah to build an Ark
"for the salvation of His House."
Noah obeyed what God com-
manded!
Noah and his family were saved
because he did what he was told to
do.
Parents, what about "Your
House."
Are the members of your house-
hold saved?
Your children and your grandchil-
dren?
You are instructed to "Bring up a
child in the way he should go," and
"Bring your children up in the nur-
ture and admonition of the Lord."
Are you doing that?
The world is wicked and danger-
ous, therefore, children need a place
of safety.
That place is the home.
The home should be a haven in
a heartless world, a place of safety
and security.
Home should be the first place
where any child hears of and expe-
,riences first-hand what the love of
Christ means.
Yet, sometimes this is the very
place we neglect the most.
We are so busy with so many
things that we neglect the most im-
portant things.
We' make sure our kids are in-
volved in little league, ballet, and so
many other activities, that we don't,
have time to make sure they are in
church and Sunday School.
I don't know how many times
I have heard parents say, "We just
can't make it on Wednesday night;
that's when Junior is playing foot-
ball."
"We know we need to be there
Sunday night but that's the night of
our little Betty's dance recital."
What are we saying to our chil-
dren?
"Everything you want to do is
more .important than being with
God's people to study His Word and


---L --L --sss~--,

is a click away!


enjoy the fellowship with fellow
Christians."
How can we change this? ,
Well, we will need parents who
are committed to Christ FIRST!
Parents who aren't afraid of their
own children. Parents who will say,
"I know you would like to do that
but it interferes with Church."
We need to let our children know
that all other activities are second to
Christ and his church.
We need parents to begin to sup-
port the youth program of the con-
gregation.
They need to make sure their
children are in Youth Group and in
Preaching.
They need to get them in a place
where they are surrounded with oth-
er Christian Youth.
We need to read scripture to our
children and have them read it to us
as well.
We need to meet together and
have prayer as a family.
Make your home a place where
your children can find protection
from the world.
Make it a place they enjoy.
Make it a place of learning and
sharing.
Make it a home where Jesus
would feel welcome!

College Thoughts
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I'm a fan of college football. Most
of the teams have reported back
to begin practice, and we are days
away from the first games!
But as intense as every Saturday
promises to be, do you realize that
most of the games are being won
and lost right now, before they are
even played?
Who shows up in shape?
Who has been watching extra
films?
Who is most focused and deter-
mined in practice right now?
People who study successful
men and women point out how in-
tentional they are with their time and
work.
Every action today is done with
tomorrow's challenge in mind -- a
challenge they will be most prepared
to meet.
We would do well to follow their
example, for there will come a time
when we will all have to "be ready."


1M


Servina the communities �south of Lake Okeechdbee


S t ber 3 2009


The challenge will begin, and the
time for preparation will be over.
We will win or lose by how pre-
pared we are for the moment.
We know that moment is com-
ing.
We need to ask ourselves what
we are doing right now to get ready
for it.
Just as football games are won or
lost in practice, spiritual victories are
won and lost in our preparation.
The moment is coming, and
what we are doing right now will
determine how well we do.
Jumping back to college
thoughts, do you realize if this years'
entering college class had 'been
more alert back-in 1991 when most
of them were born, they would now
be experiencing a severe case of
dej vu.
The headlines that year railed
about government interventions,
bailouts, bad loans, unemployment
and greater regulation of the finance
industry.
The Tonight Show changed hosts
for the first time in decades, and the
nation asked "was Iraq worth a
war?"
For them, the Green Giant has al-
ways been Shrek -- not the big guy
picking vegetables.
They have never used a card cat-
alog to find a book.
They have never had to "shake
down" an oral thermometer, or
hand change the channels on a tele-
vision set.
Most are unfamiliar with a rotary
dial telephone, and chocolate chip
cookie dough ice cream has always
been a flavor choice.
Each new generation has its per-
spective shaped by its own experi-
ences.
I encourage you to take this op-
portunity to pray for all those young
men and women attending college
this year and what they will experi-
ence -- that they will remain strong
in their faith while in school and that
those who don't know Christ will
encounter a faithful Christian wit-
ness while in college.

Game farms to comply



with new regulations


As of Aug. 27, game farms in Florida can
be as large as 2,000 acres.
This increase, from 640 acres, and other
changes to the rules regulating game-farm
operation, received final approval from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) in June.
They are now part of Florida law.
Rule 68A-12.011 of the Florida Adminis-
trative Code replaces the old Florida statute
on game farms, while retaining substantive
portions of the,previous statute.
The changes also provide exemptions to
licensing requirements, require readily avail-
able proof of a leasing agreement if game
farm land is leased, limit killing of game to
the licensee or bona fide employees and re-
quire record keeping.
If someone leases game farm property,
the effective date of the lease must cover the
game farm license period.
A copy of the valid and current lease
agreement must be submitted with the ap-
plication.
The code requires game farm operators


to make all records available for inspection
by FWC staff on request.
There are exemptions to the requirement
that owners of game animals be licensed.
They include bison ranchers and people
who own 50 or fewer live bobwhite quail
or nonnative game birds (except nonnative
ducks and geese) for pets, consumption,
or educational or dog-training purposes.
People who buy or receive eggs for food
or consumptive purposes also are exempt
from game farm regulations.

Stronger Capital

Stronger Liquidity

Enduring Strength


As our nation and the banking industry
continue to deal with the current financial
crisis, we want you to know that Seacoast is
ready to meet your business and personal
banking needs.
Seacoast first opened its doors in 1926 - 83 years ago. Soon after, we
survived the Great Depression and World War II. Seacoast navigated
safely through those challenging times, and we are doing so now.
We are pleased to announce that we recently completed a common
stock offering which resulted in raising $89 million and increased
our risk based capital ratio to 18.1 percent - well in excess of the level
required under federal regulations to be classified as "well capitalized".
In fact, our capital base and available liquidity are stronger today than
at any time in our history. Our strength endures.
Our increased capital positions Seacoast to continue to meet the
needs of businesses and customers and to pursue attractive growth
opportunities in the future..
Today, we are fully committed to the communities we serve. We will
responsibly lead Seacoast forward in a way that ensures we - and
you - remain safe and secure. We want to be your bank for many
years to come.
Come to Seacoast...and feel good about your bank.

erator in question.
The arrest report indicated it was a MQ
Power generator model DCA85USJ, with the
serial number listed as 8400298.
Interestingly, it would only be a few weeks
later before a forklift at J & J Amusement in
Canal Point would also be stolen.
On June 4, according to the PBSO arrest
report, the unidentified forklift owner ob-
served it parking behind the packing house,
while flying in a helicopter in search for the
stolen item.
The caretaker at J & J Amusement, re-
portedly allowed PBSO deputies to conduct
a search of the property for the forklift in
question.
Authorities reportedly noticed a plastic
storage bin containing pieces of Allmand
light towers.
Upon cross reference, it was later de-
termined that the pieces were parts of two
missing light towers, which made deputies
suspicious.
Later in that day, deputies questioned the


man about an double-axle, black 16-foot
trailer parked near the stolen forklift.
After PBSO deputies conducted a search
of the trailer, it had reportedly appeared that
a generator had been removed from it.
Just 12 days later (June 16), deputies
received a call from an unknown source,
which revealed that a person with J & J
Amusement, was buying stolen equipment
at the packing house location.
The site of the alleged crime was reported
to be on Lake Shore Drive in Canal Point.
It was later revealed to authorities that a
large, white generator was taken off a dou-
ble-axle, black trailer in the rear of the J & J
Amusement building.
Also relayed to PBSO deputies was the
fact a white forklift, light towers and several
generators were loaded in an orange semi-
trailer and transported north to the Long Is-
land, New York area.
Inside a nearby white trailer, according to
the arrest report, was an alleged stolen Bob-
cat skid loader at the Ferguson's junk yard.
It was revealed at the time, J & J Amuse-
ment went to a fair at Nassau Coliseum in
Hempstead, N.Y.
Perhaps the most valuable piece of evi-
dence supplied to authorities was the fact


a large man, listed as anywhere from 6-5 to
6-7 in height and more than 300 lbs., sold
the stolen equipment.
. Just two days after the alleged sale (June
18), PBSO deputies contacted U.S. Sugar
about the questionable items.
On that same day, information was re-
portedly relayed to Nassau County (N.Y.)
Police .Detective Paul Read about the or-
ange semi trailer, which allegedly had stolen
equipment on it.
One person, of Holdrege, Neb. was con-
tacted on June 18 about the light, towers in
question, which were reportedly stolen from
Barnard Construction.
Detectives later found the alleged stolen
generators had Caterpillar 3 cylinder engines
- information that proved to be a crucial ele-
ment in the suspect's apprehension.
MQ Power of Lewisville, Tx. was notified
about the alleged stolen MQ Power genera-
tor.
On the night of June 18, Nassau County
Police Det. Read confirmed with PBSO of-
ficials that the white forklift and generators
were on the semi trailer, with a investigation
from Nassau County Police launched shortly
thereafter.
The next day (June 19), a search warrant

was reportedly issued for J & J Amusement:
As a result of the warrant search, an MQ
Power trailer was recovered and to%\ ed away
by Moss Towing.
The Bobcat skid loader, at the Ferguson's
junk yard facility, was located by authorities
on June 19.
It was confirmed by detectives, according
to the affidavit, that the suspect, also known
as 'Tito,' organized, planned and directed
the theft of the MQ Power generator from
U.S. Sugar at the Bryant Mill.
Also surfacing was the fact that the sus-
pect sold the generator for $5,000, with the
actual value of it listed at $25,000.
What ultimately sealed the suspect's fate
was perhaps the discovery of payments
made to the suspect's Bank of America bank
account.
The suspect was arrested by PBSO au-
thorities Aug. 19 on multiple counts of deal-
ing in organized stolen property.
Bail was set at $35,000.
