Dwyer Panthers hang out together at


Brawl at Glades Central High School


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - A major fight
occurred at Glades Central High
School during the afternoon
hours of Sept. 16.
According to Bito David, pub-
lic affairs specialist for the School
District of Palm Beach County,
about 11 Glades Central students
were involved in the fracas.
SNo names were released by
the school board in terms of
those involved.
However, it is presumed by
school district officials that the
fight, which reportedly happened
in the school's cafeteria and then
spilled into the courtyard, in-
volved students who live in South
Bay and those who reside at the


715 Mobile Huime Park near the
high school.
Officials from the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO)
have revealed Terrell M. Edwards,
an 18-year-old Glades Central
High School student who was
found dead in South Bay Sunday
night, may have been linked to
the brawl.
The school board has not con-
firmed the 18-year-old's alleged
involvement.
The Palm Beach County
School Police and a Glades Cen-
tral staff member later broke up
the fight, according to David.
There were no weapons re-
portedly involved in the fight, but
the school police did use pepper
spray to end the melee.
No major injuries were re-


ported.
However, the Glades Central
students and staff member affect-
ed with the pepper spray were
transported to a nearby hospital
to get treated for exposure to the
spray, David said.
PBSO deputies were reported-
ly at Glades Central High School
at about 2:50 p.m. that day - the
time of dismissal.
The effort was reportedly
made to ensure a smooth dis-
missal of the students.
The fight occurred at approxi-
mately 1 p.m.
No other information was re-
leased by the school board, as
this incident is currently under
investigation.

Teenager


shot dead


in South


Bay
Victim reportedly
found in driveway
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY - An 18-year-old
man was been found dead in
South Bay on Sept. 20.
It was revealed that Terrell M.
Edwards was the victim of a shoot-
ing at 160 N. W. 8th Ave.
According to Teri Barbera,
spokeswoman for the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
deputies had arrived at the resi-
dence and found the victim lying
on the driveway.
The victim was reportedly shot
once in the head.
According to preliminary infor-
mation from PBSO Lt. Rob Sandt,
the District 11-South Bay com-
mander, the shooting may very
well likely have been 'retaliatory in
nature.'
Sandt added the fatality could
be linked to the 715 Mobile Home
park shooting in Belle Glade, which
reportedly occurred 'a couple of
months ago.'
The shooting, which currently
has no suspects or persons of inter-
est involved, reportedly occurred at
10:32 p.m.,
The Palm Beach County Medi-
cal Examiner's Office and crime
scene detectives were contacted in
relation to this fatality.

Pahokee Blue Devils suffers big loss to Dwyer


Glades Central stays
unbeaten, while Moore
Haven loses to Summit
Christian

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PAHOKEE - A relatively close game be-
tween the Pahokee Blue Devils and the Dw-
yer Panthers turned into a blowout.
Though Pahokee lost to Dwyer, 34-6, it
was really a defensive battle throughout the
very hotly contested game.
There wasn't a whole lot of offense for
either team - Dwyer outgained Pahokee by
just 14 yards (227-213).
And only three offensive touchdowns
were scored between both teams.
- In the end, the difference of the game
was essentially three second half defensive
touchdowns registered by Dwyer - two of
which were interceptions.
Down 7-6 in the beginning of the second
half, Pahokee's De'Joshua Johnson threw
his first of two interceptions on just the sec-
ond play of the third quarter.
That miscue proved costly, as Dwyer de-
fensive back Mike Ruiz stepped right in front
of Johnson's pass, caught the ball and raced
15 yards right into Pahokee's end zone.
The interception occurred just over a
minute into the third quarter.
Less than two minutes after that - Pa-
hokee got the ball right back after Dwyer's
score to put them up 14-6 - Johnson was
sacked by Dwyer defensive end Curt Maggitt
on a third-and-12 play.
The sack subsequently resulted in a lost
fumble by Johnson, which allowed Maggitt
to run 45 yards into the end zone to extend


Dwyer's lead, 20-6.
Pahokee's offense had yet another op-
portunity to get back in the game.
Unfortunately, Dwyer ended another Pa-
hokee drive on a sack of Johnson from a
third down play - a 13-yard loss.
As Pahokee punted the ball the Dw-
yer with 3:36 left in the third, the Panthers
seemed to be on its way to putting away the
game for good.
However, a controversial fumble com-
mitted by Dwyer later in the quarter gave
Pahokee new life.
Thiswas made possible by a 10-yard run
from Dwyer's Gerald Christian, who fum-
bled the ball at Pahokee's 20 yard line.
Referees ruled in favor of Pahokee recov-
ering the pigskin at its own 24 with 1:13 left
in the third.
Unfortunately for Pahokee, the last real
chance of coming back ended quite disas-
trously on the ensuing drive.
Pahokee wideout Fred Pickett (five catch-
es, 124 yards, 1 TD), had three of those re-
ceptions on the fateful possession.
Pickett, who hauled in a 56-yard touch-
down catch from Johnson in the'first quarter
for a 6-0 lead, caught passes of 39, 10 and
11 yards on the drive to put Pahokee in the
red zone.
But as Pahokee tried to get into the end
zone from the Dwyer 20 on first down, Ruiz
picked off Johnson again with 10:32 left in
the game.
It was over for Pahokee, especially as
Dwyer methodically ate up the clock on of-
fense, while wearing down the vaunted Blue
Devil defense.
Dwyer quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who
in the second quarter threw a 5-yard touch-
down pass to Robert Clark for a 7-6 lead,
sealed the Panthers win on a 4-yard run on a
quarterback keeper with just 4:52 left.


INI/Naji Tobias
The Pahokee Blue Devils energize the fully packed crowd at Anquan Boldin
Stadium before the Sep. 18 game against the Dwyer Panthers.


That score put Dwyer up 27-6, with the
game being officially out of reach for Paho-
kee.
"Defensively, we did alright," said Paho-
kee Blue Devils defensive end/outside line-
backer Zachary Allen.
S"We just could have played better on of-
fense. We laid down at home in this game."
Johnson, who started at quarterback, fin-
ished 12-for-21 passing with 163 yards, one
touchdown and two interceptions.
Emmanuel Perez, who came in for John-
son. late in the fourth, threw just six passes
in the game.
But two of them were interceptions - one
of which was returned for a Dwyer touch-
down by Shawn McClaine, who zoomed 40
yards into the end zone for a 34-6 lead at the
game's conclusion.
"This was not a game we could make
mistakes in and get away with it," said Pa-
hokee offensive coordinator Jonathan John-
son.
S"Offensively, we didn't block and we
dropped the ball. We made a lot of mis-
takes."


Blaze Thompson, the Pahokee Blue Dev-
ils head coach, couldn't agree more.
"The gist of the game is that we turned
Sthe ball over four times," Thompson said of
the loss.
"We allowed two pick-sixes and a fum-
ble recovery for a touchdown. You can't
have that happening against a team as good
as Dwyer."
Jack Daniels, Dwyer's head coach, was
thoroughly pleased with his team's efforts in
their win.
"In order for us to win against Pahokee,
we had to limit the big plays from De'Joshua
[Johnson] and Chris [Dunkley]," Daniels
said.
"They kept our coaching staff up all night
the whole week," he continued.
"We knew they can create a lot of match-
up problems on the field, so our defensive
backs had to mix it up on coverage and we
had to score whenever we got the chance
to."
Dunkley, perhaps Pahokee's best overall

athlete, was limited to two catches for 39
yards in the game.
Notes: Dwyer's Matt Elam, one of the
nation's best overall players, had 17 carries
for 103 yards in the win.
Brissett finished 5-for-9 passing with 89
yards and a touchdown, in addition to five
carries for26 yards and the 4-yard score.
Dwyer (2-1) scored 27 of its 34 points off
Pahokee's five turnovers - all of which hap-
pened in the second half.
Dwyer, who dropped out of the Rivals 100
national rankings after a 21-7 loss to Glades
Central in Week 1, re-enters the poll at No.
48.
Pahokee (2-1), which came into the game
as the Rivalsl00 No. 16 team in the nation,
dropped to No. 59.
Dwyer, the Beef 0' Brady's No. 14 team
in the state coming into this game, moved
up three spots to No. 11.
Pahokee, who was No. 4 last week,
moved down 11 spots to No. 15 in the state
this week.
Glades Central 33, American Heri-
tage (Delray) 14: The Raiders scored a big
victory over the Stallions in Week 3.
L.J. Thomas led the way for Glades Cen-
tral, as he threw for 382 yards and five touch-
downs in the win.
Greg Dent caught two touchdowns from
Thomas, while Kevin Benjamin, Demetrius
Evans and Clive Walford each snagged one.
That means Glades Central's top four
receivers - with Walford being the tight end
- made a significant contribution in the vic-
tory, which moved them to 3-0.
With the win, Glades Central is now the
Beef O' Brady's No. 4 team in the state, be-
hind only No. 1 St. Thomas Aquinas, No.
2 Northwestern (Miami) and No. 3 Central


(Miami).
Glades Central is also the Rivalsl00 No.
33 team in the country this week.
Summit Christian 21, Moore Haven
20: For the Terriers, now 2-1, Fred Hall re-
mains as the team's brightest spot.
Hall scored two rushing touchdowns and
registered 141 yards on the ground with 28
carries.
Keonte White, who added 19 carries for
126 yards, was 3-for-12 passing for 21 yards,
with one touchdown and one interception.
White's touchdown pass was to Hunter
Ward in the first quarter - a 12-yard pass to
put Moore Haven up 6-0.
A failed two point conversion run after
the score may have been the difference in
this game.
Moore Haven's secondary allowed two
touchdown passes from Summit Christian
quarterback Chris Wimer, who also scored
the game-winning score on a 1-yard run in
the fourth quarter.
Fortunately for Moore Haven, Hall record-
ed a milestone, as he now stands - statistical-
ly - as one of the top overall running backs in
the state, according to MaxPreps Florida.
After three games, Hall has 70 carries for
590 yards and 13 overall touchdowns.
The 13 touchdowns puts Hall as the No.
1 scorer in the state as of Week 3, according
to MaxPreps Florida. -

A Walk in the Past: The story of the Treaty of Fort Gibson


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum Director
In 1832, the Treaty of Payne's Landing
(treaty to relocate Seminoles in the west)
was signed by Seminole leaders and United
States officials. However, the treaty wasn't
binding, but contingent upon reports made
by a special delegate of Seminoles that
would travel to the Creek reservation in
Arkansas Territory and appraise new land.
The stipulations of the treaty would go into
effect, only if the land was approved by the
Seminole Nation. The Seminole people
would then have three years from the date
the treaty was signed to prepare and relo-
cate to their new homeland in the west.
The Seminole delegates had scheduled
to leave for the western lands in July, after
the Green Corn Dance, but were delayed
until October. They arrived in the Arkansas
Territory in December and were greeted by
barren lands, covered in a cold winter world
of white. The party spent three months in
the territory, waiting on government com-
missioners, who arrived in March. During
this time they explored the land and got to
known their Creek brethren.
Prior to returning to Florida, the Semi-
nole delegates were asked to meet with
the commissioners and sign a document at
Fort Gibson, which was located in the Ar-
kansas Territory. The document's wording
was precise. A brief paragraph reads, "and
the undersigned Seminole chiefs, delegated
as aforesaid, on the behalf of their nation
hereby declare themselves well satisfied
with the location provided for them by the
Commissioners, and agree that their nation
shall commence the removal to their new
home, as soon as the Government will make
arrangements. for their emigration, satisfac-
tory to the Seminole nation." The document
was called the Treaty of Fort Gibson or the
Additional Treaty.
Needless to say, the Seminole delegates
failed to get a hero's welcome when they
arrived back home. The Seminole people
were enraged at the news and ridiculed the
delegates for allowing the Americans to pull
the wool over their eyes. Seminole delegates
defended their dignity, explaining they had
been forced to sign the document and were
not told its true meaning. We will probably
never know what really transpired at Fort
Gibson, but can only speculate.
These are questions that must be asked:
(1) Why did the United States government
send Seminole delegates out west in the
dead of winter to approve the exchange of
warm, sunny Seminole lands in Florida for
the cold, barren western lands? The concept
at first sounds ludicrous, but what if it was
all part of a treacherous plar to get the del-
egates to sign a document they didn't, fully
understand? (2) Why would seven Semi-
nole delegates sign a document that would
impact the entire Seminole Nation without
first consulting the Seminole people? The
delegates knew they had never been given
this authority by the Seminole Nation and to
act without it could mean death.
Many historians believe the Treaty of
Paynes's Landing was muddied by the White.
Houses's political agenda. The Jackso-
nian Administration wanted the Seminoles
moved west at all cost because they saw no
alternative way to deal with the complex,


Seminole Indian problem. The ole quote,
"out of sight and out of mind" more or less
summed up this philosophy.
Historians also believe there were people
of dubious character that sped the treaty
process along. Indian agent, John Phagan
was said by some to be a man of question-
able character. In 1832, acting Florida Gov-
ernor, James D. Westcott, conducted an
investigation of Phagan's stewardship, while
the trusted Indian agent, with his Seminole
delegate was returning home from their trip
out west. Evidence of fraud and improper
conduct were found.
Governor Westcott garnished Phagan's
wages to recoup embezzled money that
Phagan was accused of taking and later had
him removed from office. In all fairness,
there are those that think Phagan was set up
by certain political adversaries he cultivated
during his flowering career.
It is strange that federal and state gov-
ernment officials felt Phagan was a man
of questionable character and not deemed
trustworthy to maintain his honorable post
as an Indian agent yet, they honored and pro-
claimed the Fort Gibson treaty that Phagan
had helped facilitate as legal and binding.
The Seminole delegates stated many times
to government officials that Phagan was de-
vious and had taken unscrupulous measures
at their expense to secure their signatures on
the document.
Was Phagan a chameleon of question-
able character that walked like a duck,
quacked like a duck and looked like a duck
during the Treaty of Fort Gibson negotia-
tions? We will never really know for certain,
but it is probably safe to say that our state
and federal governments will never have a
shortage of ducks.
Indian agent Phagan, left an empty of-
fice seat that needed to be filled quickly,
and Jackson had just the man. In 1833, he
appointed Wiley Thompson, a man who
had served with him during the Creek War.
Thompson's experience as a major general
of the Georgia Militia from 1817 to 1824,
and later a Georgia politician in the House
of Representatives, made him an excellent
choice. Jackson's and Thompson's political
views and their mutual understanding of In-
dian affairs put them in agreement with one
another.
In 1833, President Jackson submitted the
Treaty of Payne's Landing and the Treaty of
Fort Gibson to the Senate. On April 8, 1834,
the Treaty of Paynes's Landing was ratified.
The stipulations in the Treaty of Paynes
Landing now called for the removal of the
Seminoles from Florida three years from
the date it was signed, which was 1832. The
western lands had met the approval of the
Seminoles on paper only. The document
was questionable, but legal ina court of law.
The United States government now had only
a year left to prepare and move the Semi-
noles from their beloved La Florida.
Thompson's decision to take the job as
Indian agent in Florida came at a very bad
time. He had the full responsibility of relo-
cating the Seminoles to the Arkansas Terri-
tory, which was a nightmare alone, when
one considers the logistics involved in trans-
porting thousands of people, thousands of
miles.
The hostile Seminoles were his greatest
challenge. They had been subjected to the


laws of the United States, since it purchased
Florida from Spain in 1819 and legally took
possession in 1821. The Seminole's hopes
for lasting peace with the young nation were
shattered when one year later the Treaty of
Moultrie Creek was signed. The treaty forced
them to cede all their lands in exchange for
inferior lands the United States set aside for
them as reservations.
Reservation life wasn't a good experience
for the Seminoles, nor was their new neigh-
bors, the Americans. The Seminoles had ac-
cumulated fifteen years of disappointment
and bitterness and now doggedly refused
to leave Florida, Their agenda to stay and
Thompson's agenda to remove them soon
put Thompson and the Seminoles at odds.
Thompson had several meetings with the
Seminole chiefs at Fort King, (near present
day Ocala) where he stayed. The meetings
always became hostile because the Indians
contested the Treaty of Fort Gibson, declar-
ing it illegal. They would also bring up the
Treaty of Moultrie Creek that was ratified in
1833, repeating the article that guaranteed
them the right to live on the reservation
lands for twenty years.
During the meetings, Thompson was in-
terrupted by some of the younger Seminole
men with groans, violent gestures and abu-
sive language. The older chiefs were more
courteous to Thompson because they had
seen the consequences of the First Seminole
War and longed for peace. The younger
men saw only the injustices done to their
nation and perceived violence and war as a
means to end their suffering at the hands of


the Americans.
The hostilities between the Seminoles
and Thompson continued to grow. Thomp-
son noticed that the Seminoles were pur-
chasing far more powder and ball than was
needed to sustain their hunting. He reported
his findings to his superiors, but received no
marching orders. Thompson grew increas-
ing concerned about the purchases and fi-
nally banned their sale to the Seminoles.
The Indians were inflamed when told
they could no longer purchase powder and
ball. The legendary Osceola was reported to
have said, "Am I a negro, a slave? My skin is
dark, but not black. I am an Indian - a Semi-
nole. The white man shall not make me
black. I will make the white man red with
blood; and then blacken him in the sun and
rain, where the wolf shall smell of his bones,
and the buzzard live upon his flesh."

8-.The Sunv


A special day for Princess Gisselle


A very shy girl, Gisselle finds comfort
in her mother's arms.


Terminal brain cancer
moves friends, strangers to
help

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
Gisselle, before she was treated for a can-
cer in her brain, was a beautiful girl.
To her mother and her father, to the friends.
at her school, and the people she knows at
church, to the men and women who have
offered their sincere kindness, sometimes by
action, sometimes by prayer, to those who,
have shaken her hand or played for longer
than a minute with her, to the brothers who
watch over her, to her uncle who has stood
by her since her birth, and to her aunt who
wishes she could see her just one more time,
Gisselle is a beautiful girl,
Rita Gonzalez is her mother.
On this day, Rita shows pictures of her
little girl, showing pictures of when she was
just two years old, and then later, to just be-
fore she became sick, Gisselle at Disney, and
suddenly sleeping in a hospital bed.
The smile on her mother's face never
dims, despite the quick progression of the
disease and how pointedly it is marked in
the stills. Just as though her daughter's eyes
had never become misaligned, or her tiny
face swollen, Rita looks at Gisselle like any
proud mother.
In her still young life, Gisselle has had
no fewer than three operations to remove a
cancer in her brain. This year, doctors gave
her family the news that the cancer had
spread to an area of her brain that could not
be operated on.
Faced with the choice of continuing che-
motherapy with only the prospect of slow-
ing the growth, and not entirely eliminating


the cancer, her parents decided she should
now be left alone.
Rita is a strong woman.
She can talk directly about her daughter,
and not be moved to tears with retelling just
how Gisselle finds herself in her present con-
dition. She remembers like a human archive
every little detail, and can, through her sim-
ple expressions, convey the major events of
her daughter's life, without worrying about
becoming too upset to continue.
The pellucidity of this seems harder on
the person within hearing distance of the
details.
But every mother who has loved her chil-
dren so fears seeing the day when she might
outlive them.
Does she ever talk about the future?
The question itself brings Rita to pause.
Something within her is moved and her eyes
well and bare a keen reflection of the light
in the room.
One day, while her mother washed the
dishes in the kitchen, Gisselle fell, with a
bang, to the floor. She lost full control of her
legs and now finds it easier to crawl to move
around. Having watched her daughter run
and play with her brothers and after her first
operation losing critical motor functions and
even the ability to go to the restroom herself,
Rita is grateful that Gisselle is seeing better
days today.
The last time the six-year-old was rocked
by her illness was on her birthday.
She cried because her head hurt so, and
Rita desperately called the doctor, but she
knew that nothing could be done. Feeling
that the moment she feared since that first
trip to the hospital had finally arrived, Rita
and her husband and her family prayed and
prayed and prayed, in the presence of. their
weeping daughter.
It was her birthday, and yet no child
should suffer something as insufferable
any day of their lives, but especially so on
what should have been her happiest day. It
may have been the last time she wished for
something, smiling above a cake with her
name on it, blowing the six candles out as
the wish trailed from her mind and into the
unknown space where all dreams go to be
heard, or discarded.
But Gisselle did get better, and her family
cherishes all their moments with her, espe-
cially her brothers.
SIf every brother were like 9-year-old Jose,
little sisters wouldn't have a reason to com-
plain about them in their diaries.
Jose checks on his sister when she falls
asleep sometimes, and makes sure to bring
her a blanket and a pillow so she can set her
head on the softest one he can find. He no-
ticed a few kids bothering her in school and
stood up for her, warning the kids not to do
it again.
Jose has a big heart. He doesn't know
what he wants for Christmas, but he knows
just what Gisselle wants: a laptop and a cell
phone.
Asked what he wishes for, and he says
for his sister not to have to go to another
hospital. "She suffers too much," he said.
Three-year-old Ezekiel looks on, perhaps
too young to understand the adult situations
his older siblings are going through.
Today, a special day is planned for Gis-


selle at Belle Glade Elementary.
It is called Princess Gisselle's Day, and a
lot is being planned for her. The celebration
starts this morning in the cafeteria. Staff and
administrators and volunteers took on the
job and hope that people will purchase spa-
ghetti dinners to raise funds for her family.
Gisselle is excited because she will be
treated like a movie star. She will ride a
limousine to school, and performances by
Glades Central High School and Seminole
Ridge High School drama department will
cap off the festivities.
"This is her day," her mother said. "It is
Gisselle's day."

Glades Central High School Reading Activity


Glades Central Community High School
has partnered with Sun News to promote
reading comprehension. On a bi-weekly ba-
sis, we will provide a short passage for stu-
dents to read and answer questions. Please
support this initiative by having your child
participate in this academic activity.

The following are the answers and expla-
nations to questions printed in the Sept. 17
issue of the Sun News.

Answers and Explanations
1. The correct answer is C.
* This question is about main idea. If you


try to summarize the passage yourself, you'll
note that the author strongly supports pet
ownership because it rewards pet owners
with years of fun and love.
* A clearly is incorrect because it directly
contradicts what the author says. Although
B, D, and E all mention information men-
tioned briefly in the passage, none captures
the main idea. C is correct.
2. The correct answer is D.
* This question is about words in con-
text, so treat it like a Sentence Completion:
In addition to protesting --- practices like
fur trapping and animal testing, animal rights
groups have begun to attack owners of cats


arid dogs for keeping animals imprisoned in
the home.
* The blank calls for a negative word, be-
cause it's clear the author of the second pas-
sage is very much against pet ownership.
* You can rule out B, C, and E because
they all are positive words. A and D are both
negative words, but D, disgraceful, is a bet-
ter fit in this context.
3. The correct answer is A.
* This question is about themes and ar-
guments, so try to generate an answer on
your own first.
* Overall, it's clear that the first author
supports pet ownership enthusiastically and


the second objects to it strongly. The answer
choice that matches this most closely is A.
1. The correct answer is B.
* This question asks about attitude or
tone. Again, generate your own answer first
and then compare it to the answer choices
you're given.
* The first passage is positive, encourag-
ing, and excited about pet ownership; the
second is negative and disapproving toward
pet ownership.
* With that in mind, B clearly is correct:
the first passage is enthusiastic, whereas the
second is critical.

Gove Elementary School
Cat Talk
Welcome Back --- State of the School
Welcome back to another exciting school
year at Gove Elementary School. We have
lots to celebrate this year as we start off the
year with a letter grade of "A" as designated
by the state based on the achievement of
our students during the 2008-2009- school
year. We congratulate the students and the
faculty for their hard work and dedication
and thank the parents for their continued
support. In addition, we also achieved the
status of becoming a Five Star School for the
12th time as identified by the Florida Depart-
ment of Education. This award is a symbol
of excellence and presented each year to
schools that have shown exemplary com-
munity involvement. We are very proud of
our school for meeting the criteria to receive
this prestigious award and thank the com-
munity for their involvement in our school.
We also take this opportunity to com-
mend all of the parents who have taken the
time to participate in the events held, thus
far, this school year. During "Meet and Greet
Morning", 818 signatures were collected as
parents met and visited with their child's
teacher prior to the start of school. In addi-
tion, over 847 signatures were collected dur-
ing the annual "Open House" held on Au-
gust 28th. On Tuesday, Sept. 15th, a belated
"FCAT Celebration Program" was held to
recognize the students in grades 3-6 for their
high achievements in the 2008-09 FCAT; one
hundred and sixty seven (167) parents took
part in this celebration. Again, we thank you


for your participation and encourage you to
continue to be involved by joining our Vol-
unteer and Business Partnership Programs.
Together, we can continue to assist our stu-
dents in achieving high levels of academic
performance.

Community survey completed in Canal Point


An abandoned basketball
court is among several is-,
sues to be addressed

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
CANAL POINT - First South Bay, now Ca-
nal Point.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO) recently finished a neighborhood
survey for the unincorporated town, which
is just north of Pahokee.
Christopher Keane, the PBSO District Five
lieutenant, and two of his deputies, Stephen
Chiappa and Darren Read, asked 50 Canal
Point residents on their thoughts of the ar-
ea's progress.
Survey results show that 79 percent of
the Canal Point think the level of service
provided by the PBSO is 'excellent', while 15
percent said it was 'good'.
Only 4 percent of Canal point residents
rated the service fair or worse.
Obviously, the sheriff's office is happy
with that finding.
However, there were some concerns Ca-
nal Point residents had for their small com-
munity.
The most prominent area that needs to
be addressed, pollsters say, is.the lack of ac-
tivities for the youth to participate in.
For one thing, Deputy Read reportedly
met with Canal Point resident Kathie Wat-


kins about the concern on Aug. 10.
Upon collecting the survey-results, he
was notified of an abandoned small bas-
ketball court on the west side of Lake Shore
Drive.
"The fence on the west side of the court
had been blown over during one of the past
hurricanes," Keane said.
"The Maiden Cane has since overgrown
the areafrom the railroad tracks to the west
side of the court."
The PBSO officers have determined that
the basketball hoop and backboard are in
need of replacement.
In addition, weed killer, Keane said,
needs to be applied to the court's asphalt
and sealer.
Basketball lines need to be repainted on
the court, as well, according to Keane.
"That would really fix the area up," Keane
said.
Another concern residents had is that
there needs to be more street lights in the
relatively quiet area. It would be provide for
a safer more ambient setting in Canal Point,
residents pointed out.
More community based activities such
as sports, cleaning and public development
are needed, Canal Point residents said in the
survey.
In terms of narcotic activity, 48 percent
of residents believe it's 'very important' is-
sue in Canal Point, with 44 percent saying
it's anywhere from 'somewhat important' to
'not important'.


Narcotic activity is 'important' to eight
percent of Canal Point resident, the survey
said.
As far as traffic related concerns go, 59
percent of residents think it's a 'very impor-
tant' issue, while 13 percent say it's 'impor-
tant' to them.
Conversely, 26 percent believe traffic con-
cerns are anywhere from 'somewhat impor-
tant' to 'not important' in Canal Point.
Almost three quarters of those surveyed -
73 percent - think an increased community
involvement presence by the PBSO is either
'important' or 'very important'.
The overall quality of life component var-
ied widely in this survey, as 35 percent don't
believe it's an important issue.
That's in contrast to the 24 percent of
those polled who believe the overall qual-
ity of life issue is 'very important' to Canal
Point.
In response to the community survey,
Keane and his two Canal Point deputies
have come up with initiatives to address the
impending issues.
Future plans for Canal Point
According to Keane, the PBSO has plans
to meet with members of the Canal Point
Community Development Organization to
share the survey results .and receive feed-
back from them.
A 'Bike Rodeo' for children is slated to be
held sometime in December.
Keane, Read and Chiappa are reportedly


working with the School District of Palm
Beach County, the property owner of the
neglected basketball court, in getting the
facility repaired so Canal Point children can
safely use it.
Volunteers from the Citizens on Patrol
program will relocate speed trailers along
U.S. Highway 441, with increased traffic en-
forcement by deputies in Canal Point.
Deputies are currently meeting with
Canal Point business owners to introduce
themselves and provide information on ser-
vices the PBSO has to offer.
"We don't want Canal Point residents to
feel like they are forgotten," Keane said.
"As you can see, we are already starting
to implement problem solving strategies for
the area," he continued.
"It speaks positively to the deputies that
are working the area, as the citizens of Canal
Point are important to us."
Notes: The community survey, taken by
Keane and his deputies, was implemented
by PBSO Lt. Rob Sandt, the District 11-South
Bay commander.
The problem-solving component, Keane
said, was adopted by PBSO Major Tony
Araujo.
The community survey was completed
on Aug. 14.
The basketball court's reconstruction is
slated for completion towards the end of
2009.

PBC Criminal Justice Commission hosts event


The Palm Beach County Criminal Justice
Commission's (CJC) Weed and Seed Pro-
gram will host a Re-Entry Transition Fair on
Friday, Sept. 25, 2009 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
It will be held at the Clayton E. Hutcheson
Agricultural Center located at 559 N. Military
Trail, West Palm Beach. A capacity crowd of
more than 1,000 ex-offenders is expected.
The purpose of the Re-Entry Transition
Fair is to connect ex-offenders to the cadre
of services offered in Palm Beach County.
More than 40 service providers will attend
including Gulfstream Goodwill, Justice Ser-
vice Centers, Florida Department of Correc-
tions and the Florida Department of Motor


Vehicles. The goal of the fair is to provide the
assistance and support ex-offenders require
in hopes that they do not re-offend and be-
come part of the "revolving door" course of
action prevalent in many offenders' lives.
Weed and Seed utilizes a comprehensive
approach to crime prevention. By "weed-
ing" out problems, arresting the criminals,
and "seeding" the neighborhoods with
crime prevention methods, a partnership is
created. The partnerships include neighbor-
hood improvement, code enforcement and
specialized neighborhood intervention.
As in other Weed and Seed programs
across the nation, Palm Beach County has


made re-entry a priority. There are five Weed
and Seed sites in the county all with re-entry
components: Belle Glade, Delray Beach,
Riviera Beach, Gramercy Village and West
Palm Beach. Successful re-entry initiatives
provide support through existing service sys-
tems such as those involving mental health,
employment, substance abuse prevention,
housing, welfare, faith-based and transporta-
tion services. Weed and Seed funding can be
used to manage and supervise the returning
offender populations (through law enforce-
ment, corrections, and judicial systems) and
to also develop support services.
For over twenty years, Palm Beach Coun-


ty's CJC has been at the forefront of cutting
edge research and program development in
all areas that impact criminal justice, courts,
jails, youth violence, law enforcement plan-
ning, research and crime prevention. The
CJC is governed by a board of directors that
provides leadership and guidance in these
areas.
Join the CJC's efforts to stabilize neigh-
borhoods and provide hope to those who
want to improve their lives. The event is free
and open to the public. For more informa-
tion, contact the Criminal Justice Commis-
sion's Weed and Seed Program at 561-355-
4943.


Muck Bowl All-Stars to be unveiled in November


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
GLADES - The Sun Newspaper will unveil
its all-star Muck Bowl team in November.
Fans of both the Glades Central Raiders
and Pahokee Blue Devils will have an op-
portunity to select who they think are most
deserving of All-Muck Bowl honors.
The Muck Bowl - the annual regular
season-finale football game between Glades
Central and Pahokee - began play in the
early 1980's.
No one knows for sure when the Muck
Bowl officially started, with Effie C. Grear, a


former Glades Central High School princi-
pal, claiming it began in 1981.
Meanwhile, Don Thompson, the legend-
ary Pahokee Blue Devils football coach, says
it began in 1984.
Nonetheless, the Muck Bowl - widely re-
garded as, one of the nation's most storied
high school football rivalries - has brought
in a vast array of memorable performances
from current and past players and coaches
from both teams.
With that being said, the All-Muck Bowl
selections will be voted on exclusively by the
fans, not this publication.


The only thing The Sun Newspaper will
do is tally up all the votes and then publish
them in the Thursday, Nov. 5 edition of this
local newspaper.
It should provide for much fanfare and
excitement heading up to the Muck Bowl,
which is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14 at
5 p.m.
This year's Muck Bowl will be at Glades
Central's Effie C. Grear Stadium.

Voting procedures
Beginning today, fans can vote for their
favorite Muck Bowl performers in the fol-


lowing offensive and defensive positions:
Quarterback
Running back
Wide receiver
Center
Right guard
Left guard

Freedom in America!
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
One of the things that has bothered me
about this present administration is the pre-
occupation to proclaim what is wrong with
America and to dwell on our problems and
their seeming insurmountability.
The administration has proclaimed the
nation and the people as a whole, rather
than admitting that many of the problems
deal with a few, and by doing so condemn
by association.
This must be and can be solved by action
and not by rhetoric.
And so, I would like to state what I think
is RIGHT with America.
In a message to Congress on January 6,
1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt stated
to Congress the Four Freedoms that had
been listed in the Atlantic Charter.
Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Wor-
ship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom
from Fear.
I believe that we here in America -still
possess these freedoms to a degree that no
people in history prior to our time have ever
possessed.
FREEDOM OF SPEECH... We can speak
out through our Tea Parties and Marches on
Washington.
We see dissent and disagreement that has
been present and vocal but there are those
in the administration who would like to si-
lence this dissent. They maintain they want
to silence it "for the good of all."
Thank God, this will not be allowed to
happen! We are free men and women and
we must cherish this right that all be able to
express themselves.
As Christians we must have this right if
we are to bear the witness we have been
called to bear.
FREEDOM OF WORSHIP... There are
times when men tend to confuse freedom
of worship with freedom from a relationship
to and with God.
True, there have been those who would
like to strike God, His Name, His worship,
and His love from our way of life.
I believe that all they have managed to do
is to make people more aware of the pre-
cious power and the love of God.
We do worship in freedom.
No other land has this kind of religious
freedom.
We have no state church.
The government does not regulate our
religious practices and beliefs, and if we
remain diligent and dedicated to the will of
God such things will not come to pass.
We need to be closer to God as a nation,
but, if we wish this to come about we will
have to be close to God as individuals.


FREEDOM FROM WANT... We are no
richer than the poorest among us.
If any man's life is diminished of life, we
too, if we' are truly his brother, are made
smaller.
We live in a nation that has been richly
blessed, that this freedom should be sure for
all.
We expend our great efforts and sums on
a mass level to be sure that men do not want
physically, and yet, I cannot help but won-
der if we GIVE a man his physical needs, are
we not to a great extent creating a want of a
psychological nature, a need to be his own
man, not dependent on others.
FREEDOM FROM FEAR... So far we don't
have to worry about a Secret Police coming
in the middle of the night to arrest us for our
expression of these freedoms.
That is indicative of Secret Police proce-
dures, terror without warning.
Our Constitution was formulated to help
preserve freedom from such fear and it is
our heritage that..we all should have this
freedom.
If men are to be led free it is free men
who will lead them.
I am still proud to be an American.
Our land is not perfect, but, if you and
I work harder, believe more, and listen to
God, we can make it better, and it is already
better than others.
Keep it ringing! God Bless America!

May you be inscribed and
sealed
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Sometimes even the corniest of old jokes
has a profound lesson to teach us.
"How many psychologists does it take to
change a light bulb?"
"Just one. But he has to be willing to
change!!'
Willingness to change is a rare trait
among humans. People are often frightened
of anything new and tend to stick to the sta-
tus quo even if it keeps them in a rut.
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year,
in many ways is to inspire a willingness to
change.
Quoting Ecclesiastes: "For no man is
perfect in this world, doing only good and
never sinning," the central message of Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur for the Jew is
that we all need to improve, we all need to
change.It would be good for us to embrace
our Judeo-Christian heritage and realize that
this is a central message for us as well.
In a nutshell, Rosh Hashanah celebrates
the birthday of humankind, the day on which
God created Adam and Eve.
It's a time when God's people reaffirm


their desire to serve God every day, and God
is proclaimed as the one and true King.
At the same time, it's a time when God
reviews the status of His creation and deter-
mines if each person merits another year in
this world. On Rosh Hashanah, everyone is
judged by God based on his or her actions
during the previous year. :
The resulting judgment is inscribed by
God and a person's future is determined for
the following year.
Though that judgment is inscribed, it is
not yet sealed and can still be changed for
another ten days.
God waits until Yom Kippur to seal the
book for the year.
The ten days between Rosh Hashanah
and Yom Kippur is the time for soul-search-
ing and an opportunity to change personal
judgment for the better.
How can a person change their judgment
for the better?
According to the teachings, God looks
chiefly at three areas during these ten days:
Teshuvah (repentance), Tefillah (prayer),
and Tzadaka (charity).
By doing teshuvah with true regret for
the past and commitment for the future, a
person can improve his judgment before it
is sealed on Yom Kippur.
Similarly, by praying with greater con-
centration before God, and by giving charity
with the proper spirit, one can also upgrade
one's status. A combination of repentance,
prayer, and charity can improve ones stand-
ing with God.
On the first night of Rosh Hashanah,
a special greeting is used. "May you be in-
scribed and sealed for a good year."
A Jewish friend shared, ."Every time we
wish each other a Happy and Sweet New
Year, we are really saying, "I hope that you
are successful in your attempts to change
yourself and improve yourself in the coming
year."
It is in that spirit that I wish each of you a
Happy and Sweet New Year! May you all be
inscribed and sealed for a good year.

Using what God gives us;
Ignorance is not bliss and
can be fatal!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Having served as their tour guide, I was
invited by a travel program to share in one
of their "introductory tours."
The off-season, complimentary trip would
mean I could get to see all sorts of places
that I dreamed about visiting one day. Costs
would be covered by the tour company; a


really great opportunity... So I thought.
When I called for more information, I
asked the name of the air carrier that was
being used. The name was given to me; an
airline that I had never heard of before.
I went to the library and "gpogled" up the
airline. The articles that came up, one after
another, were about the mishaps that the
airline suffered.
This was not good news! I called the tour
agency back and asked if they knew any-
thing about this particular airline. The opera-
tor said "No."
I told her that I had done some checking
and then asked "Do you want me to send
you the references so you can check for
yourself?"
Her one-word answer ("No.") told me
all that I wanted to know about deciding to
cancel the trip, and my relationship with that
tour company.
Later, I heard of another mishap that oc-
curred on a flight going to the city where
the airline was based. I checked: sure
enough...!
This recollection came to me from my
Bible reading last week.
The Book of Proverbs opens with an
admonition in the first chapter to use what
God makes available to us; and to seek be-
ing wise.
"How long will you simple ones love
your simple ways... And fools hate knowl-
edge (chapter 1, verse 22)?"
The author reminds those who choose
ignorance or are proud of their not knowing
that their attitudes will catch up with them:
"Since they hated knowledge and did, not
choose to fear the Lord, since they would
not accept my advice and spurned my re-
buke, they will eat the fruit of their ways.
For the waywardness of the simple will
kill them, the complacency of fools will de-
stroy them, but whoever listens to me will
live in safety and be at ease, without fear of
harm (vs. 29-33)."
I cannot know everything, I cannot learn
all that there is to be learned, but I have a
responsibility to seek the knowledge that my
God-given talents will make available to me.
If I pretend, if I am like the ostrich that sticks
his head in the sand to avoid things, if I don't
do something to be aware and learn what
I ought to know, my waywardness may kill
me; my complacency will be my end.
Don't wanna know?
No!
Proverbs reminds us that ignorance is not
bliss and that what you don't know can kill
you.
The admonition to be wise means that
we have to use what God makes available
to us; and to be responsible for knowing
and learning about what's going on in His
world.

Flu Season is here - Be prepared, get vaccinated


By Pat Dobbins
Administrator for the Hendry & Glades
County Health Departments
Reports of the H1N1-Swine Flu keep
flashing on the news screens and filling our
newspapers, but it's also time to think about
other flu viruses. Our flu season typically
starts in October and will last through the
fall and winter. Symptoms of flu can include
fever or chills and cough or sore throat. Oth-
er symptoms of flu can include runny nose,
body aches, headache, tiredness, diarrhea,
or vomiting.
We are asking that you plan to stay home
if you are sick until at least 24 hours after you
no longer have a fever (100 degrees Fahren-
heit) This should be determined without the
use of fever-reducing medicines (any medi-
cine that contains ibuprofen or acetamino-
phen such-as Tylenol, Advil, or Aleve). Other
signs of a fever can include having chills,
feeling very warm, have a flushed appear-
ance, or are sweating. If your symptoms are
severe, please see your healthcare provider.
You will keep hearing reminders to cover
"t. your coughs and sneezes and to wash your
hands often with soap and water, or to use
an alcohol-based hand cleaner if soap and
water are not available. This sounds like
common sense, right?
If a severe flu outbreak hits our commu-
nity, please take additional steps to avoid
spreading the flu virus in schools, in the
workplace, and in our communities. Take
actions now to prepare! Get your vaccine for


seasonal flu. Many health providers in our
community now have the vaccine for sea-
sonal flu. Also ask your healthcare provider
if the pneumonia vaccine is right for you.
Vaccination guidance for seasonal flu
and H1N1-Swine Flu are different. The 2009
H1N1-Swine Flu vaccine is not intended to
replace the seasonal flu vaccine - it is in-
tended to be used along-side seasonal flu
vaccine
Seasonal Flu Vaccine
People who should get a seasonal flu
vaccination each year include:
* Children aged 6 months up to their
19th birthday
* Pregnant women
* People 50 years of age and older
* People of any age with certain chronic
medical conditions
* People who live in nursing homes and
other long-term care facilities
* People who live with or care for those
at high risk for complications from flu, in-
cluding: Health care workers, household
contacts of persons at high risk for compli-
cations from the flu, household contacts
and out of home caregivers of children less
than 6 months of age (these children are too
young to be vaccinated)
H1N1-Swine Flu Vaccine
Once the 2009 H1NI-Swine Flu vaccine
becomes available, the groups recommend-
ed to receive this vaccine include:

* Pregnant women because they are at
higher risk of complications and can poten-
tially provide protection to infants who can-
not be vaccinated
"* Household contacts and caregivers for
children younger than 6 months of age be-
cause younger infants are at higher risk of
influenza-related complications and cannot
be vaccinated
* Healthcare and emergency medical
services personnel because this can be a
potential source of infection for vulnerable
patients. Also, increased absenteeism in this
population could reduce healthcare system
capacity
* All people from 6 months through
24 years of age: Children from 6 months
through 18 years of age because children
have close contact with each other in school
and day care settings, which increases the
likelihood of disease spread. Young adults
19 through 24 years of age: Healthy young
adults often live, work, and study in close
contact with each other, and they socialize
more often
* People aged 25 through 64_years who
have chronic health conditions and may
have higher risk of medical complications
from influenza.

groups for this vaccination, please talk with
