Morris, a long-time
law enforcement
officer, accused of
wrongdoing

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Sun
The man assigned to address law-
lessness in Belle Glade has been ac-
cused of it.
Mike Morris was formally charged
with fraud after an investigation re-
vealed that he fixed a ticket for the
daughter of a Belle Glade city official.
The accusation reached its head
on Feb. 22 of this year. That's when
Deputy Sheriff Samnang Ith spoke to
an investigator with the office of the
State Attorney about a traffic stop in
November for which a ticket he wrote
was stricken from the record.
Ith detailed a trail of deception
leading back to Lt. Morris, related to
an incident with 24 year old Jamie
Evans, daughter of Belle Glade Public
Relations Coordinator Mary Evans.
According to him, Jamie had been
issued five citations when he pulled
her over. Moments after issuing the
citations, Ith said he was asked by Lt.
Morris via a sergeant to dismiss the ci-
tations, as Jamie had filed a complaint
against him claiming the deputy used
a racial slur toward her.
"Ith stated that due to the severity
of the allegations made against him,
he was not going to dismiss the cita-
tions," the report reads.

Brothers Die in Muck City Road Wreck


Victims found by
passerby

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Sun
Two men died earlier this week
when their vehicle fell into a canal
in Pahokee. Ralph Jones Jr., 44, and
Darryl Jones, 42, both of Pahokee,

were found in the cabin of the vehicle,
which investigators are estimating had
been in the water a number of hours
before the discovery was made.
Their vehicle was found early in
the morning on Monday, June 20, by
a passerby who thought he spotted
a camper top in water. A vehicle had
become submerged in a canal along
Muck City Road.
When emergency workers arrived


at the scene, they worked to extract
the subjects, along with the vehicle,
a 1987 Ford Ranger pickup. Investiga-
tors have pieced 1,I._., i. ri what they
believed led to the wreck.
According to a report released
by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office, the men's vehicle was travel-

Commander in Jail


Reviewing the video of the traffic
stop, investigators reported that Evans
got on the phone with her brother,
PBSO Detective James Evans. James
told investigators that he had spoken
to his sister and had encouraged her
to file a formal complaint against Ith
when she reported he had been rude
to her.
Asearch of Lt. Morris' PBSO-issued
phone revealed that Mary Evans had
called him approximately 30 minutes
after Jamie was stopped. Asked about
the incident, Mary denied speaking
to Lt. Morris about the tickets, but
could not explain why phone records
showed her calling him that night.
Three days after the citations were
issued, a sheriff's office clerk was re-
portedly asked by Lt. Morris to pull the
citations from the system. Believing
that "something was up," the clerk
made copies of the citations and gave
the lieutenant the originals.
Moments later, the lieutenant said
he had lost them and they needed to
be voided, writing across the top of
the photocopies "VOID UNABLE TO
LOCATE THE ORIGINALS."
Following that incident, the lieu
tenant reportedly called Mary Evans
and spoke for six minutes with her.
Confronted with that information,
Mary Evans said she probably did
speak to Lt. Morris, but it was in refer-
ence to city business. She was again
unable to state what the two were
discussing.

Fireworks



Safety

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is
urging Palm Beach County residents to think
about safety as they make plans to celebrate
the "Fourth of July."
Every year thousands of people and ani-
mals are killed or critically injured by fireworks.
Fireworks can result in severe burns, scars and
disfigurement that can last a lifetime, for that
reason, "fireworks are illegal to use without a
permit."
Some of the illegal fireworks prohibited for
normal resale are as follows:
* Common Bottle Rockets
* Firecrackers (Rolls)
* Standard Fireworks
* M80's with Mortar
* M80's
* I',... . i,. Fireworks
* Launchable Rockets with Stands
(The above listed items are only a few sam-
ples commonly purchased by people that are
prohibited for sale.) You should not sign "waiv-
ers" in order to purchase fireworks. A "waiver"
will not clear you of responsibility should you
be caught using illegal fireworks. The Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office will be enforcing
the use of illegal fireworks. Using fireworks il-
legally is a first degree misdemeanor punish-
able by up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
If you are using I, ._- I' sparklers, novelties and
trick noisemakers there is still a risk of injury.
When lit, some sparklers can reach tempera-
tures between 1,300 and 1,800 degrees, which
are at least 200 degrees hotter than standard
butane lighter.
Follow these precautions to celebrate safe-
ly:
*Use sparklers and other I, .- i1' novelties
on a flat, hard surface. Do not light them on
grass.
*Use sparklers in an open area. Keep
children and pets at least 30 feet away from
all ignited fireworks. Also keep in mind that
livestock such as horses, cows, etc. can also be
frightened by fireworks.
*Light only one item at a time and never
attempt to re-light a dud.
*Don't purchase or use any unwrapped
items or items that may have been tampered
with.
* Keep a fire extinguisher or water hose on
hand for emergencies.

The Real Free Gift
BY REV SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
It happens regularly; those "free gifts" that
come my way! The latest was an offer to send me
a booklet on protection; if I'd fill out the card and
give a phone number where a "follow up call"
could be made.
S-It was about in-
� "' surance; I began to
feel that I'd be asked
. questions and get a
sales pitch.
I didn't accept
the "free gift" put-
ting the offer in the
circular file. I was
offered a free pre-
view for some reli-
gious videos; they
would send them
Rev. Sam S. Thomas and I had 90 days to
return them. I told
the folks that videos
get passed around, and somebody loses track.
The sender wants to be paid for them and maybe
that was why he sent them in the first place.
My request was to send us a copy that they
didn't need back. That couldn't be done. The
free offer had strings; it wasn't really free after all.
The next "free offer" of films will bring a promise
that we'll send them back right away; but please
give us permission to copy and review them at
our leisure. I'm betting I already know the answer
to my request. A notification came one day that I
had won a "free" Pontiac. There was a telephone
number for me to call.
It wasn't an "800" number, so I called collect;
feeling that anybody who could give me a car
could certainly afford paying for a collect call. The
woman who answered on the other end wasn't
sure; she had to ask her boss and he said to refuse
the call. Imagine that! In reality, "free" things are
far from free many times. The "free" things are re-
ally free when they come without conditions.
I like a Biblical account of a "free gift" best of
all; it was really free. I didn't have to earn it, no
conditions, no limitations, no hidden clauses, or
sales pitches to follow. It is about a gift that wasn't
like a trespass (Romans 5:15). We live in a world
full of pitfalls, snares, hazards, evil; people fall and
that is a part of our nature.
The gift was about overcoming the tragedy
of it all, about recognition of our condition and
being justified in spite of ourselves, and in spite
of what goes on around us day by day. With our
inheritance of all that is wrong; God has pro-
vided "abundant provision of grace and the gift
of righteousness..." through the sacrifice of the
Lord, "the many will be made righteous(5:17,
5:19)" We have it from God that in spite of it all;
we are His and heirs of His salvation. Is the gift
free? There is an addendum to the passage; "But
where sin increased, grace increased all the more
(v.20)."
The more we need the gift, the more it is
made available to us; now that's a free gift! No
strings, no limitations, no guilt trips for recipients,
no conditions. That's the way God works. Mer-
chants: take a lesson!

Questions Without Answers
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First united Methodist Church
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? A
little boy on the Art Linkletter show years ago an-


swered the question, "The chicken had to come
first, because God can't lay eggs." His answer is
probably as good as any other.
What is it that we look for when the riddles
and the puzzles and the problems and the ques-
tions line up on the path of life? Solutions? An-
swers? Explanations? Mysteries revealed? All the
puzzles finally unraveled?
From the time in
the Garden of Eden
with the temptation
of the fruit from the
tree of knowledge of
good and evil, there
has been the con
eviction that we can
and should have all
the answers to life's
every question. The
reality is we don't -
have all of the an -
swers. And what's
more, we can't. Pastor John Hicks
There are so
many questions for
which there are no satisfactory answers. To be
sure, we can make some suggestions, but when
all the questions have been asked and when what
answers available have been given, we, in faith,
move beyond questions related to "how" and set
ourselves to the discovery of meaning. Beyond
the questions we seek a presence - a presence
that bestows upon us a peace that is beyond our
understanding.
Someone once commented, "Birds do not sing
because they have an answer. They sing because
they have a song!" When we come to worship,
it does not mean that we have all the answers. It
simply means that we have a song.
We may not understand how the God of all
creation could empty Himself and become the
Babe of Bethlehem. We may not understand how
a crude cross erected by Roman soldiers on the
top of a hill outside Jerusalem over 2,000 years
ago could save the world from its sin.
We may not understand how the God of the
billions of galaxies could hear and answer the
prayers of a small child kneeling beside his bed in
a tiny home in the most remote part of the world.
We are not Christians because we have all the
answers. We are Christians because we have a
song. Having a song, let's sing it!

Are you a Mega-Christian?
BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
I recently received an e-mail from Maxine
Fream Gash from Joplin, Mo. with the above title.
Maxine is from Lakeport, Fl., the daughter of the
late Spurgeon and Pansy Click.
She has a monthly page in "The Restoration
Herald." Joplin is where the terrible tornado
struck, destroying over 8,000 homes, 500 busi-
nesses and, thus far, killing 165 people. In her
e mail, Maxine was bemoaning the fact that al-
though we have mega churches of up to 20,000
members, immorality has increased. This is quite
the paradox.
She asked the question: "Why, when there
are supposed to be so many more Christians than
ever in this country, are the moral standards so
much worse than they were when I was young?
Shouldn't it be the other way around? Back then,
divorce among church members was extremely
rare. Abortion was something I never even heard
about until my teen years, and then it was in
formation from books: something surreptitious
and shameful. Homosexual acts were illegal,


and those caught involved were locked up. Who f
could have imagined marriage between same sex
couples even being considered? Modesty in dress
and behavior are concepts apparently forgotten
in today's culture." Maxine goes on to say, "We
can fault the preachers, and no doubt some are
at fault; but I blame the culture and the pervasive-
ness of the public media which have the atten-
tion of the people hours every day of the week as
opposed to an hour of teaching on Sunday." She
also said: "Too many Christians simply don't de-

LORI Meetings Showing Great Work


Local leaders around the lake gathered at the Clewiston Museum for Lake Okeechobee Regional Initiative meeting this past April.


The Lake Okeechobee Regional Initiative
(LORI) hosted a crowded room of citizens eager
to continue the -._. ,i . i1. 0., i aiegan almost two
years ago at the Clewiston Museum.
"I recall LORI's first meeting taking place in
this board room" said Phil Bacon, vice president
of neighborhood and regional initiatives for the
Collins Center for Public Policy, which oversees
LORI. "There was a lot of hope in this room two
years ago and we are here today with a continued
vision of progression and development."
Bacon further reflected on LORI's significant
accomplishments, or doable deeds. Some of
LORI's goals included establishing a regional eco-
tourism brand, democratizing regional economic
development data, increasing youth engagement
and strengthening existing infrastructure.
Education and outreach were the resounding
themes of April's meeting. Mike Maidenberg, a
Collins Center consultant on youth engagement
strategies, and Taranza McKelvin, a city of Belle
Glade employee gave a tag team presentation on
LORI's urban farm efforts-Soil of Prosperity.
Soil of Prosperity, a name coined by local
youth, grew from a regional partnership involv-
ing the City of Belle Glade, Lake Okeechobee Re-
gional Initiative, University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences and Palm Beach
County.
This regional partnership has designed a
small-scale farming experience that educates
Belle Glade youth about the history of the area in
which they live and allows local youth to partici-
pate in the economy through a simulated entre-
preneurial venture.
Maidenberg conveyed his excitement about


SOP, "Establishing an entrepreneurial component
for Belle Glade's youth is a doable deed of LORI,
I'm thrilled we have been able to accomplish this
much."
Maidenberg and McKelvin also touched on a
nine-week summer program called "The Water
Experience," which has been constructed in co-
operation with the SFWMD. It will involve both
classroom sessions and field trips. It will also
teach students more fully about the water man-
agement district's work and focus on jobs and job
qualifications.
The Community Builders Certificate Program,
a newly formed partnership between LORI, Flori-
da International University and Palm Beach State
College, was unveiled by Dr. Tom Zuniga, man-
aging director of DSG Community Management
Systems. Zuniga outlined a vision that would
cultivate a new class of leaders to sustain LORI's
regional framework for years to come.
Gina Reynolds, executive director of Florida's
Heartland Regional Development Initiative, gave
the final report during the meeting highlighting
the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance. Reynolds
shared positive news about the possibility of
broadband access coming to the Glades.
Elected officials, local business owners and
member's from the District closed the meeting by
acknowledging the superb work accomplished
through LORI.
The Lake Okeechobee Regional Initiative is
a regional economic coalition sponsored by the
Collins Center for Public Policy and the South
Florida Water Management District. For more

Preparing For Your Surgery



Shouldn't Include A Long Drive Time.


At an awards presentation ceremony today,
Lakeside Medical Center and Palm Beach County
Fire Rescue officials recognized three hospital
employees for their heroic off duty actions in sav-
ing the life of a car crash victim.
In the early evening hours of April 23rd, Ben-
jamin Smalls, Radiology Technician, Gerald Stro-
hacker, RN, Emergency, and Analyan Hernandez,
RN, Telemetry, came upon an accident scene on
SR 80 near Twenty Mile Bend as they headed to
work at Lakeside Medical Center in Belle Glade.
They witnessed the vehicle rolling over and burst-
ing into flames with the driver trapped inside. De-
spite the smoke and fire, Mr. Smalls says he did
not hesitate to stop and pull the driver from the
vehicle.
"Being in the medical field, this was the right
thing to do," said Mr. Smalls. "I'd hope someone
would do the same thing for me."
Mr. Strohacker and Ms. Hernandez also
stopped and helped Mr. Smalls move the driver
further away from the car as it became fully en-
gulfed in flames. Ms. Hernandez called 911. Ac-
cording to Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, the
front bumper was the only part of the vehicle that
was not burned. The driver was transported to a
local hospital, where he was evaluated for non-
life threatening injuries.
"The entire Lakeside Medical Center team is
grateful to these three employees for their swift

actions in ushering the victim to safety," said Bri-
an P. Gibbons, Jr., Hospital Administrator. "I am
deeply impressed by the humanitarian spirit of
our staff at every level."
"Had these three not stopped, the victim most
likely would not have survived," said Fire Chief
Steve Jerauld, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.
"We commend these Lakeside Medical Center
staff members for their selfless assistance to the
victim, at their own personal risk."
The three employees were honored at a spe-
cial awards presentation at Lakeside Medical Cen-
ter attended by members of their families, hospital
staff, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue personnel
who responded to the accident, and members of
the Glades Rural Area Support Board, including
James T. Howell, MD, MPH, Chair; Effie C. Grear,
EdD, Secretary/Treasurer, Gilbert Alvarez and Do-
nia Roberts, Esq.
Recognizing the employees for their bravery
and actions were: Ronald J. Wiewora, MD, MPH,
Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical
Officer of the Health Care District of Palm Beach
County (which owns and operates the hospital);
James T. Howell, MD, MPH; Effie C. Grear, EdD;
Gilbert Alvarez; Brian P. Gibbons, Jr., Hospital Ad-
ministrator; Jeffrey A. McRoberts, RN, BSN, MHA,

from someone employed by PBSO."
After Mary and Jamie Evans had been inter-
viewed, call records show that Mary Evans once
again called Lt. Morris and spoke for nearly 20
minutes with him.
Among other charges, Lt. Morris is said to
have purposely disguised his handwriting so that
the signed photocopies did not match his own
signature and he told investigators that although
he knows Mary Evans, the two do not like each
other. He said that if he spoke with Mary Evans
on the night Jamie was pulled over, but if he had
it had been to tell her that he would look into the
incident.
Lt. Mike Morris is one of the better known law
enforcement officials in the Glades. Until a few
days ago, the lieutenant was in charge of the sher
iff's office District 13/Belle Glade unit, working
closely with deputies and investigators on polic-
ing and law enforcement efforts in the area.
He is now on administrative leave at PBSO.
By his own account, Lt. Morris felt at home
in Belle Glade and rejected the idea of working
anywhere else. Initially making his mark as po-
lice chief for the city of South Bay, and ascending
through the ranks at the sheriff's office, Lt. Morris
reportedly saw himself as one official that locals
could trust amid a sea of sheriff's office assign-
ments from elsewhere in the county.
Lt. Morris could not be reached for comment.
"It's simple," he said. "The difference with me
is that I want to be here."

Glades Central Falls to Immokalee in Third Round of Dolphins Academy 7-on-7 Tournament


Pahokee gets blown out by
South Palmetto (Miami) in
first round

BY NAJI TOBIAS
The Sun
Coming into the Dolphins Academy 7-on-7
tournament, it was a somewhat forgone conclu-
sion that the Glades Central Raiders would score
a three-peat as South Florida's best.
Unfortunately for Glades Central, a third
round draw pitted them against an equally ath-
letic Immokalee Indians team that looked hungry
to end their run of dominance in perhaps South
Florida's best 7-on-7 competition.
Held at Central Park in Plantation on June 18,
Glades Central, after enjoying a first round bye,
seemed well on its way to representing the Miami
Dolphins once again at next month's NFL 7-on-7
national tournament after outlasting Monsignor
Pace (Miami), 48-24, in the second round.
And afterscoring a quicktouchdown on Glades
Central's first offensive series against Immokalee
- courtesy of a Tanner Redish end-zone pass to
Jaime Wilson - the Raiders, up 7-0 after just a
couple of plays, were poised to continue making
some serious noise in this tournament.
But Immokalee had other plans.
The Indians scored two touchdowns off
Glades Central's vaunted secondary en route to a
14- 7 halftime lead they would never relinquish.
Now down 27-17 with less than three min-
utes left in the game, Redish (9 TD, 3 INT overall)
found David Bailey on an out route for a despera-
tion score to pull Glades Central within three.
Not to be outdone by the Raiders, Immoka-
lee quarterback Tshumbi Johnson (4 TD against
Glades Central) put the dagger in the heart of
Glades Central's defense just a few plays later, as
he connected on a game-sealing touchdown pass
to Jacky Marcellus for the 34-24 lead and win.
"We felt like we could come and compete
with the best teams in South Florida all along,"
Immokalee head coach Jerrod Ackley said.
"Glades Central is a very athletic team, but I think
they overlooked us. They didn't realize we had
the same kind of athleticism and it's something
they don't really see often."
Glades Central linebacker Don'kevious John-
son touched on what he felt that went wrong
for his team in the third round game against


Immokalee.
"We just have to pick up and hustle more on
defense," Johnson said. "Immokalee is a good
team, but they beat us by a bunch of mistakes we
made as a team. We thought we were going to
win, but it just wasn't meant for us today."
The same could be said for the Pahokee Blue
Devils, who were thoroughly manhandled on
both sides of the ball by South Palmetto (Miami)
in their first round match-up.
South Palmetto's 55-14 blowout was made
I ....i ,. I., .1 communication breakdowns
between Pahokee's secondary and coaches, with
some players clearly befuddled and flustered by
the quickness and precision of Palmetto's offense
in both halves of action.
But early in the game, it looked to be a shoo-
tout, as both teams traded touchdowns on their
first two respective offensive drives. Though
Pahokee never led, they did tie the game at 7-7
and 14-14, courtesy of Rashaun Croney's touch-
downs passes to Shaquille White and Jontavious
Worthen.
Unfortunately, Pahokee wouldn't score again
on offense, as the unit looked completely out of
sync, evidenced by three interceptions thrown by
Croney, which contributed to South Palmetto's
37-14 halftime lead.
In the end, South Palmetto would score 41 un
answered points to finish the game's scoring.
"We weren't running the right routes on of
fense and we blew a lot of coverages on defense,"
Pahokee's Shaquille White said. "We need to be
more disciplined and listen to our coaches mov-
ing forward."
Pahokee Blue Devils offensive coordinator
Darren Hill said that the 1 .... . . .,1 1 and inexpe-
rience played a role in how their first round game
turned out.
"We're just not getting it done right now," Hill
said. "We're just young as a team, so it's some-
thing we'll use as a positive. The players just need
a little more training and time 1. ._-, i,. r, they'll get
better in time."
Notes: In Glades Central's second round win
over Monsignor Pace (Miami), Redish threw for
four first half touchdown passes and six overall.
Cornelius Jones caught two touchdowns in that
game, while Zacarius Sheppard, William Likely,
Dominique Gibson and Gems Richemond each
caught one against Pace.
Wilson and Gibson each caught a defensive
pick in the Pace game.

the Raiders first two touchdown passes against
Immokalee.
Speaking of Immokalee, they advanced to the
quarterfinals against Jackson (Miami), who even-
tually won the Dolphins Academy 7-on- 7 tourna-
ment.


Jackson (Miami), who blew out Cardinal
Newman (West Palm Beach) in the title game,
52-28, will be representing the Miami Dolphins
for next month's NFL 7-on-7 national tournament
in Cleveland.


Palm Beach County's Unemployment Rate Lowest in Two Years


Palm Beach County's unemployment rate for
May 2011 was 10.2 percent - the lowest in two
years (the May 2009 unemployment rate also
was 10.2 percent) - and down 0.8 percent from
the May 2010 rate of 11.0 percent.
This also represents a decline in the county's
unemployment rate for five consecutive months,
falling 1.8 percent from January's unemploy
ment rate of 12.0 percent, according to informa-
tion provided today by the Workforce Alliance of
Palm Beach County and the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation.
The county's unemployment rate also was
slightly lower - 0.3 percent - than the state un-
employment rate of 10.5 percent.
"We think this is a positive commentary on a
slow but steady recovery in the area's economy,"
said Kathryn Schmidt, President and Chief Execu-
tive Officer of Workforce Alliance, the non-profit
organization chartered by the State of Florida to
create and lead workforce development in Palm


Beach County.
Palm Beach County led the state in the highest
over-the-year employment growth in the finan-
cial activities category (+ 1400 jobs) - an over-
the-year increase for the fifth consecutive month.
Other industries that gained jobs in the West
Palm-Boca Raton-Boynton Beach region over the
year were leisure and hospitality (+3100 jobs),
education and health services (+2000 jobs), and
manufacturing (+ 100 jobs). Job losses in the
region over the year were in government (-2800
jobs due primarily to the Federal government no
longer employing temporary Census workers
who were employed last year), trade/transpor-
tation/utilities (-2000 jobs), construction (-1200
jobs), and professional and business services
(-500 jobs).
Workforce Alliance of Palm Beach County
has been instrumental in placing thousands of
job seekers from entry-level positions to the ex-
ecutive suite. Most recently, Workforce Alliance


placed 9,826 area candidates in jobs since July
2010.
Besides helping record numbers of Palm
Beach County job seekers enter or reenter the
workforce, Workforce Alliance is also helping
improve the economy by providing services to
employers and funding training programs to en-
sure that current workers remain qualified for
i i, i. .1- and avoid the prospect of layoffs.
These free services include recruitment,
assessments and referrals of qualified job
candidates; space for screening/interviewing
candidates; grants for training new or existing
employees; and outplacement assistance.
More than 11,000 people each month are be-
ing helped by specialized services provided at
no cost in the three Workforce Alliance Career
Centers located in West Palm Beach, Boca Raton
and Belle Glade.
The Centers offer free workshops and other
resources for job skills training and career coun-


selling with the ,i ,i. ii of getting people placed
in jobs. A variety of programs are available for all
levels of job seekers whether they are profession-
als, recent graduates just entering the workforce,
or someone recently subjected to a layoff.
"We offer a wide range of professional pro-
grams to help businesses find qualified candi-
dates for open positions and scholarship grants
for job seekers who meet the eligibility criteria
to attend training classes at regional educational
and training institutions. As It.I ............ . - , i.
improves, we are continuing to enhance the
quality and scope of our programs and services
to ensure that the local workforce will be ready
for the new jobs that are created," Ms. Schmidt
said.
Workforce Alliance offers its services to all
employers and job seekers in Palm Beach County
in fulfilling its role as the leading human resource
solution driving economic growth in the county.

Inland Birdwatching Fun: a



Swallow-tailed Kite U


Swallow-tailed Kite in flight at STA5.
BY MARGARET ENGLAND
Hendry-Glades Audubon
Birdwatching is fun for youth and adults. It's
easy to become excited when you see birds nest-
ing or try to get a close-up photo of a bird with
its young. With binoculars and powerful camera
lenses, it is easier to avoid causing stress on birds
that are protecting their nest or young. This is not
only good for the birds but is also a more relaxing
and enjoyable
experience for
the birdwatcher.
The Swallow
tailed kite is a
graceful black
and white raptor
that the Calusa
called "Ta-ti
na" or "spirit
that soars." The
Swallow tailed
Kite rarely flap its
Margaret England wings while fly
ing but it almost
continuously
rotates its tail, often to nearly 90 degrees. It does
this in order to hold a heading, make a sharp turn
or trace tight circles while drifting across the sky.
It has relatively small feet and beak for a raptor,
which results in a diverse diet of small prey that
includes insects, reptiles, amphibians, small birds
and a small number of mammals. These graceful
flyers frequently eat while flying and get water by
skimming the surface and gathering water in their
bills. Vocalization is a shrill "klee-klee-klee".
The Swallow-tailed kite migrates from South
America to nest in Florida swamps, and may be
seen from March to September flying above road-

ways and trees in the inland counties searching
for food. Large numbers of birds gather at stag-
ing roosts in South Florida in late July and August
before they migrate south for the winter.
A few Swallow tailed kites are being observed
on the west side of STA5 (Stormwater Treatment
Area 5) where Hendry Glades Audubon leads
scheduled bird trips through a partnership with
the SFWMD. You are invited to join the July 16
trip to STA5 as volunteers search for the Swallow-
tailed kite and 50 other bird species found dur-
ing the summer at STA5. Meet at the Clewiston
McDonalds at 7:15 a.m. or STA5 gate at 8:30 a.m.
Reservations are required. To sign up for the trip,
send an e-mail to Margaret England, at sta5bird-
i,.. ... , .. i. l .l i i.. .. ...... w ith your nam e and
contact information including an emergency cell
number for the trip day, the date you want to go,
and the number in your party. You may also leave
this information at 863-674-0695 or 863-517-0202.
Bring water, snacks, and lunch. For a schedule of
STA5 trips through December 2012 visit the HGAS
website at: www.hendrygladesaudubon.org
You can help Swallow-tailed kite researchers
determine the distribution, monitor population
trends, and locate important nesting and foraging
sites. Sightings of nests, roosts, kites carrying nest
material or food, locations where kites are seen
regularly, and sightings of more than one kite are
of particular interest.
Information can be submitted to The Avian
Conservation Center and the Center for the Birds
of Prey through their website at www.thecenter-
forbirsofprey.org/swallowtail-kite.
Share your birdwatching experiences and post
suggestions for featured birdwatching sites on the

cebook pages.

Awards
parents to provide transportation, many of the
youth miss out on opportunities to compete out
side of the area, many of them after having quali
fled for races which would have garnered them
some national exposure.
As a youth who was fortunate enough to
make plenty of those trips abroad i can recall
the anticipation and excitement associated with
each. It was an opportunity to compete with
peers outside of the city, county and, at times,
even the state.
Just as important, it was also an opportunity
to see other parts of the world - a relished op
portunity for any youth living in a financially chal-
lenged environment. Unfortunately i also know of
the disappointment i felt when i was unable to
make those trips.
In light of the aforementioned challenges, it
is our desire to secure a 12 to 15 passenger van
for the Big Lake Track Club. Any and all support
i 1 11 , .1 . ... / be able to provide is greatly appreci-
ated.
We are hoping ii i.... will take into consid-
eration coach Butts' commitment to our youth
and his desire to continue to do so in spite of his
own health issues and make plans to attend the
2011 Leadership Beyond Sports Awards. All prof
its from the awards event to benefit the Big Lake
Track Club.
In case you have any questions feel free to call
Jermaine Webb at 321-848-6269 or Kevin Brown
at 561-261-2621. Thank you in advance for your
time and consideration.
