Joe Gir-zone, the Catholic priest who wrote several inspirational works about Joshua of the Old Testament, told them Jesus was one of them. "I try to introduce the homeless to Jesus, who can be a companion when they fall asleep on a park bench," said Girzone, whose books inspired Gamarano to establish the cafe.

Upon learning that Greenacres' new community center project could cost $150,000 more than its $1.2 million budget, the city council Monday night took immediate action: It froze its own contingency account, which is used to pay for small items that pop up during the year. The new building next to Ira Van Bullock Park will be bigger than planned because of design changes the council made in September. Deputy Mayor Jim Rawlins made a motion to indefinitely block spending the available $100,000. "That's not going to make (city) staff happy," Rawlins said. "That's their goody fund."

Elmore, founder of Hardrives of Delray paving company, could not be reached for comment. BELLE GLADE Arlene Lightburn, 24, admitted in court that she plunged a steak knife into her boyfriend's chest.
