Clovis Baptiste

Posted: Monday, December 12, 2011 12:00 am

Clovis Baptiste may have become a success story by escaping the poverty of Haiti and becoming manager of the Big Kmart store on Lodi's Cherokee Lane, but he longs to rescue his large family in his homeland.

Baptiste's parents and 10 of his 15 siblings remain in earthquake-ravaged Haiti. His family lives on a remote island without the simple convenience of a grocery store. To shop, you have to take a boat to the main island of Haiti, and it can be a very long trip, depending on whether there's any wind to guide the boat, Baptiste said.
