With the vast majority of his players coming in as underclassmen, he stopped short of saying that he expects the team to win its seventh state title this year. Granted, there are at least several challenges this year's team will have to face this season. While there's not much that can be demanded from the relatively young squad the 2010 team did nish with a 3-7 overall record, the program's rst losing season since 2000 Thompson is, nonetheless, relatively excited by the talent and potential he sees from his players thus far. Starting at quarterback this season will be sophomore Rashaun Croney, an underclassman talent who can also see some time lined up as a wide receiver. Croney, who was the starter for Pahokee's spring football game against Port St. Lucie this past May, logged some time at the helm for much of the previous season. Aside from the offensive and defensive lines, Thompson said he sees some depth at most other positions namely at quarterback, running back and wide receiver. It could result in a better-than-expected season for this year's edition of the Blue Devils. "We're a lot younger, but we have more experience than we did last year," Thompson said. "It's kind of a strange combination, but we more players coming out now than we did in the past season. Many of last year's players were upperclassmen, but they didn't have much experience on the eld." Though the offensive and defensive lines won't be as deep as the skill positions are this year it's actually a situation that most teams have every season, which isn't a bad thing most of the line corps will be returning starters from last year, making for a more cohesive unit than in the past. "We'll have some issues on the lines as far as our size is concerned, but we're looking better," The Blue Devils Spring Ahead to Fall ActionSee Football — Page 19 ALLEGED GANG PROMISED TO GET REVENGE BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunAccording to a report by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of ce, Leonard Pitts, a reputed gang member, may have been responsible for the death of a Pahokee man last month. Based on eyewitness statements, Pitts was reportedly still furious about the shooting murder of a female friend of his and vowed revenge. When he met up with the person he believed was responsible for her death, in a drunken stupor Pitts red a single bullet into the man's head and threatened witnesses not to say anything or they would be next. Pitts is facing a rst degree charge of murder. Detectives say Pitts may have been the shooting suspect in the July 24 death. EmerDetectives: Suspect Kills Man Over Woman’s Death PHOTO / NAJI TOBIASPahokee’s Jontavious Worthen, who makes a key defensive stop during a recent 7-on-7 tournament game, is expected to emerge as o ne of the team’s top plays in the secondary this season.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades Audubon Sept. 17 is the Florida Fall North American Migration Count (NAMC). The area of a count is not a circle, but the boundaries of a county. This is the 6th year that Hendry and Glades County have participated in the fall count. Volunteers are needed in Okeechobee County as well. The idea is to have a contiguous interlocking set of non-overlapping counts across North America. It is desirable to get as much of each county surveyed as resources permit. Contact Margaret England if you would like to join a team of volunteers or survey birds at y our home. One of the common birds that will be observed during the count is the Cattle Egret. The Cattle Egret has many common names including cow crane, cow bird or cow heron. This bird emigrated from Africa to South America, then to Florida. It was rst reported in Florida at Clewiston in 1941 or 1942 (Florida Breeding Bird A tlas). By 1960 it had been reported throughout the state and has had a spectacular range expansion. This medium-sized stocky white heron has a sturdy yellow bill, swollen throat, hunched posture and thick neck. Breeding adults develop orange-buff feathers. Cattle Egrets are more at home foraging in grass than in water. They follow cattle, horses and tractors to catch the insects they stir up. Their eyes are positioned for binocular vision during feeding. While at the breeding colony this species gives a quiet, throaty "rick-rick" call, but otherwise it is largely silent. They usually nest in colonies with other wader species. Their nest, a small untidy platform of sticks in a tree or shrub, is constructed by both parents who share incubation duties for their clutch of two to ve blue-green eggs. The eggs hatch in about 23 days. The chicks are born covered with down and are fully feathered in 13-21 days. They edge at about 30 days and become independent at about the 45 day. If you would like to join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers on the August 20th STA5 bird trip or September 17 NAMC send an e-mail to Margaret England, at sta5birding@embarqmail.com with your name 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 863674-0695 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 are invited to share your birdwatching experiences and post suggestions for featured birdwatching sites on the Hendry-Glades Audubon or Clewiston News Facebook pages.

Branch Jr. (Chip), 60, died unexpectedly in his sleep of a heart attack at Branchwater Ranch, Basinger, on Aug. 6, 2011. He was born on April 7, 1951, in Pahokee, and is the son of Hugh and Barbara Branch of Pahokee. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his daughter, Holly Branch of Okeechobee; his grandson, Shaun Penrod of Okeechobee; two sisters, Tammy Branch Shiver (Danny) of Wellington, and Kimberly Branch Reineke (Charlie) of Pahokee; two nephews and numerous other family members. Lastly, but not least, he leaves behind his beloved Labrador, Junebug, whom he claimed had a college degree. Chip was a produce executive and co-owner of Hugh H. Branch, Inc. Shortly after his birth, his father created a produce label called “Chip Off The Old Block” in his honor which is used still today. Chip was a very colorful character who will be greatly missed by many in the Lake Okeechobee Region. His sense of humor was unsurpassed and one could often nd him regaling his friends, family and even total strangers with funny stories and hilarious antics. His interests and pursuits of fun and adventure were wide and v aried and include trick skiing at Cypress Gardens in the early 1970’s, hunting, shing, ying and trap shooting. His greatest pleasure was in the sharing and teaching of these activities to his grandson, Shaun. Visitation will be held on Friday, Aug, 12, 2011, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the First United Methodist church In Pahokee. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, Aug. 13, 2011, at 10 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church in Pahokee followed by a graveside service at Port Mayaca Cemetery.

Cline, in the presence of God in Heaven. Martha was born in Hendricks County, Indiana on May 20, 1937, where she lived until 1971. At that time she moved to Moore Haven, Fla., where she resided until her death. Martha was an active member of the Palmdale Baptist Church in Palmdale, Fla. Through the years, she taught Sunday School and Vacation Bible School to hundreds of children in Moore Haven. She retired from Glades County in 2008 where she worked in the County Clerk’s Of ce for 12 years. Prior to working for the county, she had worked as a Payroll Clerk for various agricultural growers in the area. Martha was preceded in death by her parents, John Bombei and Rose Calbert Bombei, and an infant brother, Richard Bombei. She was also preceded in death by her husband and best friend, Earl C. Cline. Those who knew Martha and Earl knew that their relationship was a true love story and a beautiful example of a Christian marriage. She is survived by her daughter, Nancy C. Wilkerson (Rodney); and three sons, Michael D. Cline (Connie), Earl D. Cline (Kara) and David W. Cline (Susie). Martha had 13 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. She is also survived by brothers, Maurice Bombei (Peg), Robert Bombei, John Bombei and David Bombei (Pat); sisters, Ruth Thornburgh (Ron) and Janet Staley; sisters-in-law, Barbara Hammons, Judy Mathis and Mable Cline.

The event was the culmination of a multiyear effort to build a replacement to the antiquated facility still in use by the hospital. “There was a time in history at this hospital when things were tough,” said Victor Blandford, Chairman of the hospital’s board of authority. “Today, we’re celebrating a ribbon-cutting of a brand new facility.” The program was also held in the wake of the death of one of the hospital’s most celebrated physicians, Dr. James Forbes, who died after a long illness on Monday. As they stood to speak, hospital representatives recognized the work of the doctor, regretting that he passed away just one day shy of the ribbon-cutting for a facility he championed. With the new facility, the hospital has modernized its operations from the ground-up, at a cost of $14 million. The new facility is roughly 37,000 square feet in size and offers specialized areas for all kinds of emergency response services. “Our nursing staff and doctors are just elated with the new building,” reported Glenda Wilson, Hendry Regional Medical Center’s Foundation director, as she toured the new facility with a group of community members. Compared to the old facility, the new building has all of the amenities of a modern facility, with the ability to expand in the future. “Today is a great day for our community,” said Miller Couse, another board trustee. “There are three things that make a community successful: good government, good schools and good healthcare. We certainly have those three things in place.” Hospital administrators are also taking advantage of the new building to bring a new group of emergency doctors, contracting with a new company to provide a new group of emergency room physicians. The move is centered around customer satisfaction, the foundation director reported. “It is not just a new facility, but a new commitment by staff to provide excellent service,” said Mr. Beasley. The services from the old emergency room are expected to be transferred on August 19, when the new ER of cially begins receiving patients. Robbie Castellanos, hospital foundation member, thanked the community for its nancial support in helping the project get off the ground. There is still a long way to go, as the hospital is not paid for in full, and the foundation continues reaching out to charitable donors in the area. “That is what made this day possible,” he told the audience, but assured that much more still needs to be done. “We won’t quit asking for your help. I know you don’t expect us to,” he said. Hospital Celebrates ER Ribbon-Cutting Your community directory is a click away! newszap.com Free Speech Free Ads

How Would Your Tombstone Read?BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchWe don’t like to think of death, but have you ever given thought to what might people say at y our funeral or write on your tombstone if you w ere to pass today? Immortal Tombstone Inscriptions: “Harry Edsel Smith of Albany, New York: Born 1903--Died 1942. Looked up the elevator shaft to see if the car w as on the way down. It was.” On a grave in Nova Scotia: “Here lies Ezekial A ikle, Age 102. Only The Good Die Young.” In Ruidoso, New Mexico: “Here lies Johnny Y east...Pardon me for not rising.” In Uniontown, Pennsylvania: “Here lies the body of Jonathan Blake. Stepped on the gas instead of the brake.” In Silver City, Nevada: “Here lays The Kid. We planted him raw. He was quick on the trigger but slow on the draw.” In Nantucket, Massachusetts: “Under the sod and under the trees, Lies the body of Jonathan Pease. He is not here, there’s only the pod. Pease shelled out and went to God.” In Tombstone, A rizona: “Here lies Lester Moore Shot by a 44, No Les, No Moore.” (From “The Dash” by Linda Ellis) “I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of his friend. He referred to the dates on her tombstone from the beginning...to the end. He noted that rst came the date of her birth and spoke of the following date with tears, but he said w hat mattered most of all was the dash between those years. For that dash represents all the time that she spent alive on earth…and now only those w ho loved her know what that little line is worth. For it matters not how much we own; the cars…the house…the cash. What matters is how w e live and love, and how we spend our dash. So think about this long and hard…are there things you’d like to change? For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged. So, when your eulogy’s being read with your life’s actions to rehash...would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent your dash?” A wise person once shared, “When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in a manner that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.”Hope in Dif cult TimesBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchMy reading about the Camp David Peace Accords some years back told about the success that came with “one more try.” Menachim Begin and Anwar Sadat had spent time with Jimmy Carter to work on Mideast peace; things did not go well. As the photographers came in to take pictures of this event, Begin began to think of his family and how they had suffered during the previous wars. Then he asked to try one more time. Out of that trial came the Peace Accord that served that day and time. There are times when people have said to me “I’ve tried everything and nothing works” and I wonder if everything has really been tried. Giving up, no matter what, always has consequences. The Lord blesses persistence; Jesus’ parable about the widow who wears down an unjust judge (Luke 18:1ff) is preceded by an admonition to His disciples “that they should always pray and not give up(v.1).” The Christian faith is about hope; a hope in our calling, the promise of life to come, the assurance that one day we will be vindicated as we remain faithful. People make short-sighted decisions and cause dif culties later when they are are no longer around to account for their deeds. People spend money that is set aside for the future to meet some short-term, immediate goal. When the day comes to make use of it, it is gone. The mantra of many of the nancial advisors is “Don’t touch that retirement fund!” and plan for the future. I’ve seen churches make short-term decisions, only to have dif culties later. One congregation built a new hall on a down-town, small lot. The only space available for expansion was to build up. The committee that designed the hall planned on a one-story foundation. Years later, when the church grew, a lot of expensive reconstruction was needed to add a second story; and over the years building costs soared. Those who were responsible for the one-story construction didn’t have hope for the future of the church. Those who spend retirement funds now do not seem to believe that they will have some time in the future; most likely when costs will be higher and needs greater. Today, I see many people and churches, organizations and businesses in a “survival mode.” Necessities may prevail but is pessimism going to sap the strength that hopes for tomorrow? There was that widow; faced with very dif cult odds – a corrupt judge and a woman with nobody to plead her cause. In spite of it all, she does not give in to despair. She keeps going back. Her faith that things will work out was not betrayed. Neither are our hopes when we are faithful to what we are really called to be and do.Let Go and Let GodBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian Church A small boy saw a penny lying on the bottom of a valuable vase in his home; he reached in, grabbed the one coin -and found he could not get his hand from the vase. Father and Mother tried everything, and nothing worked; nally in desperation, Father got a hammer and was about to break the valuable vase. Just as he was set to smash the vase to pieces, the boy said, “Dad, would it help if I let go the penny?” How utterly true of so many in their effort to serve the Lord. Having started in their service to God, they are stymied in their spiritual progress. Some unsurrendered thing or area of life stands in the way of progress to the Christian walk. It is a pity that some times that which is beautiful and useful is broken simply because we are unwilling to let go.. and let God. The Faith Way is just that --you look at the long list of heros of the Faith in Hebrews. Without exception their faith is borne out in their letting go and letting God do and lead in their lives. Only as you, a member of Christ’s Church, are willing to honestly examine your own life and purpose, let go of those things that hinder spiritual progress If you are still clutching the “Penny” -don’t rob yourself and your family, your friends and your neighbors of the blessing you will be to them b y allowing God to have his way in your life.

Ihad seen ads for Appearance Implants and sought out Dr. Harrouff. When I walked into the lobby of the office the first thing I saw was a photo of the late Republican strategist Lee Atwater, who I later learned was a childhood friend of Dr. Harrouff. As a South Carolina Democrat I didnt have a lot of love for Lee, he had gotten the best of me in my first campaign, I sure as hell wasnt too keen on letting any buddy of Lee work on me. After that first encounter, I felt very confortable with Dr. Harrouff. The entire experience was purely first rate. From the people who greeted me in the lobby and to the dental staff, the Appearance Implant & Laser Dentistry team makes you feel right at home. When Dr. Harrouff got down to performing the procedure it was fast, relatively painless and the result was just perfect. The finished implant works better than Id expected. He provided me with the most affordable treatment and I have been more than impressed and satisfied by the results. I have recommended Dr. Harrouff and his professional and friendly staff to many of my friends.

The shing has also been pretty hot on the lake, with folks catching bass up to seven pounds on arti cial lures all day long in the heat. The water level hasn't gone up or down much in the past couple of weeks. I think the small amount of rain we have been receiving is keeping the level pretty steady. There are a lot of small bass to catch with numbers up to 50 a day -not a problem but you w ill have to weed through the smaller bass to catch a few bigger ones. When the bluegills are in on the beds it has been a lot easier to nd the bigger bass on the lake. I have been targeting both the dynamite holes and the open water for bass the past few weeks and the shing there has been good. The bite has been much better on arti cial lures than what it has been on the wild shiners. That's not to say you can't catch bass on the wild shiners, but during the hot summer months the shing is almost always better on arti cial lures. Out on the open lake I have been targeting holes in the reef that you can nd on a map. The next key ingredient are bluegill beds, with both of these you will catch bass. The holes in the reef are scattered from off Kramer Island to off of Observ ation Island, you just have to look for them. One other bit of advice I can give you is to stay off the trolling motor once you start catching some bass in this shallow water, I have a pair of Power-Pole shallow water anchors to hold me in place but an anchor will do the same thing. If you are using an anchor, slide it in the water gently. I see everyone throw it and make a big splash, and I'm not sure why but if you just slide it in the water slowly it will hold the boat and you won't spook the sh. Most of the bass I have been catching lately have been on a shakey head jig. My favorite is the Gambler ounce Giggy Head with a Gambler Sweebo worm in either junebug or black color. I have also been using a Carolina-rigged Gambler Ace and a Zara Super Spook to catch some of these bass out in the open water, but the most and biggest bass my clients and I have caught are on the shakey heads. I have had reports of bass being caught on Zoom Super Flukes, Senkos wacky-rigged, and crankbaits from other guides. The water is still low on the lake so don't just go running around anywhere or you will nd yourself in some really shallow water with rocks on the bottom. My suggestion: run only where you know it is safe and then idle or use the trolling motor to explore new areas. Be safe on the water, drinks lots of water, use plenty of sunscreen, and enjoy what's left of the summer. I am still booking trips in the Keys out of Marathon for night time bully netting lobsters and for bone sh, permit, and shark shing. Good luck, tight lines, and hope to see everyone on the water soon. Capt. Mark King is a full time guide out of world famous Roland Martin’s Marina and Resort in Clewiston Florida.

Gibbons, Jr., FACHE, Administrator of Lakeside Medical Center, recently became a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), the nation’s leading professional society for healthcare leaders. The FACHE credential signi es board certi cation in healthcare management and ACHE Fellow status. “I congratulate Mr. Gibbons on his new Fellow status,” said Ronald J. Wiewora, MD, MPH, Chief Executive Of cer and Chief Medical Of cer of the Health Care District of Palm Beach County, which owns and operates Lakeside Medical Center. “His accomplishment only adds to the achievements our public hospital and its staff have attained since the facility opened its doors just 20 months ago.” Fellow status represents achievement of the highest standard of professional development. In fact, only 8,500 healthcare executives hold this distinction. To obtain Fellow status, candidates must ful ll multiple requirements, including passing a comprehensive examination, meeting academic and experiential criteria, earning continuing education credits and demonstrating professional/community involvement. Fellows are also committed to ongoing professional development and undergo recerti cation every three years. Mr. Gibbons has served as Lakeside Medical Center’s administrator since its opening in 2009 and oversees daily operations. Just last month, the hospital welcomed 10 residents from across the country as it launched its new Family Medicine Residency Program. Previously Mr. Gibbons served as administrator of Glades General Hospital while transitioning personnel and equipment to the new Lakeside Medical Center. With his nearly twenty years of hospital experience, Mr. Gibbons brings an invaluable background in rural healthcare management. “I am pleased to have earned the FACHE credential and recognize the value that professional development in the healthcare management eld brings to my work every day,” said Mr. Gibbons. Prior to joining the Health Care District o f Palm Beach County, which owns and operates Lakeside Medical Center, Mr. Gibbons was Chie f Operating Of cer of the Sebastian River Medical Center, an 86-bed acute care facility in Sebastian, Florida. From 2003 to 2007 he held executive-level positions at Eastern New Mexico Medical Center in Roswell, New Mexico and Alta Vista Regional Hospital in Las Vegas, New Mexico.

The start of school is now just weeks away and the rush for vaccinations and school physicals is on. New vaccination rules for polio vaccines and a rise in cases of measles in the state mean timely vaccinations are a must. Prepare now for the upcoming school year by reviewing students’ immunization records and updating any required vaccines and scheduling school physicals. Palm Beach County Health Department Health Centers offer free vaccination services. School physicals and wellness exams are also available for a at rate of $35.00. The 2011-2012 school year requires incoming kindergarten students to have been given their last dose of polio vaccine and Diphtheria/ Tetanus/Pertussis vaccine after their fourth birthday. Seventh, Eighth and Ninth graders will need the Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis Booster and all students should have received other vaccines like Mumps, Measles, Rubella, Hepatitis B, Chickenpox and their form 680 on le as proof of receipt. Over the next several weeks the Palm Beach County Health Department will be conducting immunization outreaches to help parents and children get vaccinated and their records up to date.

BY STATEPOINTAmericans love their cars, but is the love affair reaching its end? All across the country -in cities, suburbs and rural areas -more people are turning to different transportation options, such as carpooling, car-sharing, public transportation and even bicycles. According to a recent Home Design Trends Survey from the American Institute of Architects, there has been growing demand for housing options closer to public transit. Today, most urban and even many suburban areas are providing increasing numbers of public transit options to help people rely less on cars. “You don’t have to live in or near a major city to take advantage of different means of transportation to save energy and money,” said Bill Worthen, Director, Resource Architect for Sustainability with The American Institute of Architects. No matter where you call home, there are several practical tips to help you save on gas or get a jumpstart on a more sustainable lifestyle: Biking is a great option -even if you don’t own a bike. Bike sharing programs exist in many locations (check with local Chambers of Commerce to see where they are available), and more bike lanes have been added to streets nationwide. Carpooling, or car sharing, is another option to cut costs of car travel. It also reduces the number of carbon emissions and traf c congestion. “High Occupancy Vehicle lanes” (or commuter lanes), are often free of traf c, offering great incentive for carpoolers to get to destinations quickly. Commuting to work or just going to another city for fun? Commuter rails are great for avoiding traf c and parking hassles, while reducing gas consumption. An even less expensive option is the bus. Local buses have long regarded as the “last resort” of public transportation. Contrary to these stereotypes, busses have become great alternatives for getting around while reducing your carbon footprint, says Worthen. Many local bus systems have been revamped to provide greater availability, extra lines, new eets and amenities. Some long-distance bus services, such as Greyhound, offer more comfortable seating and free Wi-Fi access. Many even use cleaner energy sources instead of gas. For more ideas for relying less on your car, and for other sustainable practices, visit www.aia.org. “No matter where you live, relying less on your car throughout the year will not only help your pockets, but the environment, “ says Worthen. “There are many tangible solutions now available and you can even lobby local of cials for additional options.” How To Rely Less On Your Car gency of cials responding to the scene at Pope Court in Pahokee found 24-year-old Tanorris Banks lying face down in a pool of blood with a bullet wound to the left side of his head. A single 9mm shell casing was recovered lying close to the victim’s body. Several eyewitnesses later placed Leonard Pitts at the scene, with varying descriptions corroborating what happened just after 1 a.m. that morning. “I’m going to put one to the head right now,” one of the witnesses told police he heard Pitts say right before he coolly took out a small black gun, pulled the gun slide backwards and shot Banks in the head. Pitts was reportedly drinking from a bottle of Hennessy at the time of the murder, and was heard blaming the victim for the shooting death of his friend, just moments before he ended Banks’ life. One witness reported someone saying “something was about to happen” before running awa y in fear and hearing a single gunshot ring in the air. Detective Shahid writes, “After the shooting, Pitts told witnesses that he would get away with shooting Banks as long as no one tells police. Pitts told the witnesses that if anyone told the cops, they would be next.” In the days after the shooting, several anonymous tips came in to the sheriff’s of ce pointing Pitts out as the shooter. One of the calls even dre w the link to the murder of a female shot and killed in Fremd Village. A subsequent medical examiner’s report found that the victim had been shot while the suspect stood over him, the bullet entering the left side of his head at a downward angle and exiting through the right side of his head near his ear. Pitts was arrested Aug. 4. He was also determined to be a member of the Fremd Village Boys gang. DeathContinued From Page 1

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 19 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A ugust 11, 2011 Thompson said. The Blue Devils head coach said he’s been encouraged by the work ethic he’s seen in his players throughout the past offseason. Though Pahokee didn’t come close to winning the two 7-on-7 passing tournaments they competed in – the Blue Devils participated in the Dolphins Academy 7-on-7 in June and another 7-on-7 tournament at West Palm Beach in midJ uly – Thompson is pleased with the dedication to overall improvement they’ve displayed all summer long. “We’ll see how this all transpires on the eld this season,” Thompson said. Croney will have some talent around him to w ork with. He’ll be supplied with throwing options at receivers such as senior wideout Shaquille White and underclassmen Derry Brown, J ay Hopson, Jonathan Jordan and Keithlin Patrick, to name a few. Brown can also play at quarterback, as he could see time as a backup in that position. Eighth-grader Josh Carr, a transfer from Glades Day, could get some reps in at backup as well. The back eld at tailback will most likely be occupied by Jordan, a sophomore who could be this year’s starter there. Fellow underclassman A aron Poitier is also expected to see some carries this season at running back. On defense, one could expect to see Croney and Hopson at safety as possible starters. And J ontavious Worthen, an incoming senior, could emerge as one of the team’s top defensive backs as this season rolls on. “We have so many players that can play multiple positions on the eld,” Thompson said. “The outlook here is positive. I’m not ready to say we’re state bound, but we’re very optimistic about this year’s team.” Thompson and his coaching staff are happy with the fact that this year’s collection of Blue Devils is coachable. In addition, the players have shown their willingness to learn about the variety of nuances and fundamentals that are necessary to succeed on the eld. The season schedule looks to play in the Blue Devils’ favor as well. Below is a look at Pahokee’s kickoff classic and regular-season games: Friday, Aug. 26 – Home vs. Jupiter Christian (Jupiter) – KICKOFF CLASSIC Friday, Sept. 2 – Away at Royal Palm Beach Friday, Sept. 9 – Away at Cardinal Newman (West Palm Beach) Friday, Sept. 16 – Home vs. Atlantic (Delray Beach) Friday, Sept. 23 – Home vs. Benjamin (North Palm Beach) Friday, Sept. 30 – Away at American Heritage (Delray Beach) Friday, Oct. 7 – Home vs. Seminole Ridge (Loxahatchee) Friday, Oct. 14 – Home vs. Calvary Christian Friday, Oct. 21 – Away at King’s Academ y (West Palm Beach) Friday, Oct. 28 – Home vs. Pope John Paul Friday, Nov. 4 – BYE Friday, Nov. 11 – Away at Glades Central (Belle Glade) – MUCK BOWL Here’s hoping that Pahokee can make a return to the playoffs after a year off.
