By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
PALMDALE According to

Office, Don Eugene Ross, 31, of
LaBelle, was arrested Dec. 31 at
C&R Motorsports Park in Palm-
dale.

one shot at Steven Joseph Han-

truck stop


Rezoning approved
for proposed service
station/truck stop

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY Glades
County Commissioners
approved the initial steps to
allow a major truck stop to be
constructed on U.S. 27.....
The proposed 15.4 acre serv-
ice station/truck stop is to be
located on the southwest inter-
section of C.R. 78 and U.S. 27,
approximately six miles west of
Moore Haven.


While details on the truck
stop are still not finalized, A.
Duda & Sons is planning to take
advantage of the heavy traffic
route running along the major
thoroughfare. U.S. 27 cuts
through Central Florida from
Miami, crossing through Glades
County and Moore Haven to des-
tinations such as Tampa and
Jacksonville. Commercial traffic
along the route is very busy.
The company showed a
concept map of the project.
The finished truck stop will
have eight truck refueling sta-
tions and 12 car refueling sta-
tions, as well as parking for 27

park crowds



draw concern


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Pointing
to several incidents leading up
to the new year, Sheriff Stuart
Whiddon and EMS Director
Bob Jones expressed concern
about able to continue provid-
ing sufficient coverage to pre-
vent similar events from occur-
ring.
The two were present at the
Glades County Commissioners
meeting Jan. 9.
Their concerns about recur-


ring incidents at C&R Motor-
sports Park became more evi-
dent as they reported the most
recent happenings from the
New Year's weekend.
Approximately 7,000 people
attended events throughout the
county that weekend, and Bob
Jones reports that emergency
services responded to ten inci-
dents, most of them being alco-
hol-related.
Many of the revelers at the
motor sports park were not

EPA discusses
lake's tributaries
at public meeting

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY The
Environmental Protection
Agency has proposed establish-
ing total maximum daily loads
(TMDL) on tributaries to Lake
Okeechobee.
This could involve an
expense for pollution control
and fertilizer application control
that affects several hundred
thousand acres of mostly agri-
cultural land.
The EPA explained these
proposals in a public meeting at
the Okeechobee County Civic
Center on Jan. 11.
Even though Florida has one
of the most advanced water
quality and TMDL programs in
the country, the EPA has decid-
ed that the deadline for estab-
lishing TMDLs in tributaries to
the lake has been missed. This
could have a direct influence on
Glades County.

ty flow into Lake Okeechobee

MUSE It's not all exactly
reading writing and 'rithmetic at
West Glades School, it's a lot
more free eye glasses for those
students who cannot afford
them.
A special program at one of
the local schools helps children
whose families cannot normally
afford to take them to an eye doc-
tor, to get fitted for new glasses.
"It is mandated by the state
that vision screening must be
administered to all students in
kindergarten, first grade, third
grade and sixth grade," said
Dawn Long, RN, the West Glades
nurse. "And any new student who
comes to the school during the
year, must also be vision and
hearing tested."

mee River.
Local government, property.
owners, agribusiness, and the
state government could feel a
severe economic impact that
could happen as a result of
implementing the EPA's TMDL
proposal. However, well docu-
mented observation shows that
Lake Okeechobee and the Ever-
glades are in danger of toxic
overloads that could lead to the
loss of tourism, sport fishing,
commercial fishing and wildlife
habitat. Strict TMDLs might be
necessary to achieve restora-
tion.
Many people want to save
the big lake and among them
are Seminoles, Miccosukees,
descendants of early settlers
and newcomers who have fall-
en in love with south Florida's
environment; yet many recog-
nize that overpopulation is the
probable cause of multiple
problems that face this sub-
tropic land.
Bill Bowman of Davie
Dairies was at the EPA meeting.
He explained how his agribusi-
ness was one of the first to put
in a chemical waste treatment
plant and how challenging it is
to maintain it. During the rainy
season, the chemicals can cost


According to her, if a student
does not pass the vision test, a
note is sent back to the parents
advising them to take their child
to an eye doctor for further test-
ing.
The problem, however, is that
there are students whose parents
cannot financially afford to take
their child to an eye doctor.
In these cases, there is a com-
pany specialized in fitting eye
glasses for children. The compa-
ny is Jeppesen Visionquest from
I I. L..i il. which sends a highly
sophisticated vision-screening
van to the school to further test
those students whose parents
cannot afford glasses for their
children.
The students get to pick out
their own stylish frames and col-
ors.

tens of thousands of dollars,
and the season does not neces-
sarily need a hurricane to cause
the expenses, he said. Mr. Bow-
man referred to the great finan-
cial output and said, "It is not in
my capability."
Miccosukee representative,
Joliet. Lorean, reminded the
audience that Lake Okee-
chobee needs, to be saved for
the sake of the Everglades and
its estuaries. She mentioned
that some people want to save
the environment but "don't
have to count on and agree with
the EPAorDEP."
David Guest, a long time
advocate to clean up Florida's
freshwater, mentioned that the
Clean Water Act of 1972 hap-
pened more than 30 years ago
and things have only gotten
worse. He does not think it is
too late to reverse it.
Karen Bickford, Lee County
representative, said that urban
areas are key players in the
health of Lake Okeechobee and
they should do the same level of
detail that is done by agriculture.
Tommy Perry, representing
the city of Clewiston, talked
about the city's new water treat-
ment plant and deep water well.

John Blake Gregory
John Blake Gregory, age 89,
of Moore Haven, Florida, died on
Thursday, Dec. 14, 2006, at Hope
Hospice in North Ft. Myers.
Dr. Gregory, a doctor of
physics, and a former professor
at Canterbury University in
Christchurch, New Zealand and
a Professor Emeritus at the Uni-
versity of Saskatchewan, Saska-
toon, Canada, was born in
Marten, New Zealand, April 12,
1918 to Adelaide and George
Gregory.
He is survived by a brother,
Kenneth (Jill) Gregory, loving
nieces, Susan and Judy of
Palmerston North, New Zealand,
Penny Gregory of Canberra, Aus-
tralia, one son, Ross (Laurie)
Gregory, of Roseville, Canada;
three grandchildren and a
daughter-in-law, Lenore Grego-
ry. A second son, Colin Gregory,
is deceased and his former wife,
Ailsa Gregory.
A brilliant, gifted student, Dr.
Gregory was graduated from
high school at the age of 13
years. His brother, Ken, said he
was always inventing things. He
was so innovative that at an
early age, he experimented with
electricity and radio receivers.
Before he was 15, he built him-
self a lathe and a coil winder
from an Edison gramophone.
He wired the door handle with
power from a Ford coil and visi-
tors, including a few teachers,
were liable to get a shock upon
entering. At the same time he
was working in a local garage
earning 10 shillings ($4 U.S.) for
a six-day week from 8 a.m. until
6p.m.
He excelled at mathematics
and physics, studying at Victoria
University. As a teacher, he con-
centrated on the fundamental
principles on which physics
depends. As a Senior lecturer, he
was awarded a Fulbright Schol-
arship to America where he
worked with Professor Van
Allen, the discoverer of the Van
Allen Radiation Belt and the
earth. He received a Gold Medal
for his work from the Royal Soci-
ety of New Zealand.'
Much of his scientific work
concerned mapping-the iono-
sphere. He set up pulse transmit-
ters in various places around the
world, including the Antarctic
where he became the first per-
son to successfully launch space


rockets from the north of New
Zealand.
As a child, Dr. Gregory often
said that he would sail the routes
pioneered by Captain James
Cook, the world's greatest navi-
gator. He fulfilled his dream by
sailing around the world from
Moore Haven, in a 37 ft. home
built Trimaran, Kimi Wairua,
with sailing partner, Anne
Deuschle to New Zealand, Aus-
tralia and around the world. His
brother, Ken, accompanied
them from Auckland to
Noumea.
On returning to his favorite
home in Moore Haven, he put
his physics knowledge to work
and was writing a book on the
theory and dynamics of sails. His
work was nearly completed
when he died from head injuries
resulting from a fall from his
boat.
Memorial services will be
held at his former home at 801
Riverside Drive in Moore Haven,
on Sunday, Jan. 21, from 3 until
5 p.m. Memorial donations may
be sent to the Glades County
Historical Society, P.O. Box 805,
Moore Haven, FL. 33471.
Ernest B. Hunt
Ernest B. Hunt, age 78, died
in December 2006. He retired to
Moore Haven in 2004 and
enjoyed sitting on his front
porch and watching the boats
on the Caloosahatchee River,
remarking that his life was truly
"magnolia," and spinning many
stories of his colorful life.
As a nine year old child he
pulled a crate to the window of a
drug store and painted his first
sign. Although he only received
a nickel for his work, it began a
life-long career in the sign indus-
try. He moved to Miami in the
1950s and became and electrical
sign contractor. He designed,
built and erected many large
outdoor electrical signs. His last
job was a 30 foot vertical electri-
cal sign which he built with his
son, Jeffrey and erected at the
gateway to the Florida Keys.
He is sorely missed by his
wife of 31 years, Barbara. His
Miami family consisted of five
sons: Rocky, Rodney Blake, Gre-
gory, Jeffrey and Michael. He
also had two daughters, Kimber-
ly and Loretta. In Cincinnati, he
leaves his sister, Helen Knotts
and four other children, Ernest,
Jr., Carol, Juanita and Linda.
There were many grandchildren.
All arrangements were under
the direction of Akin-Davis
Funeral Home, Clewiston.

Local man hospitalized for gunshot wound


By Naji Tobias

BELLE GLADE Police are
investigating the case of a man
who apparently shot himself at a
gas station in Belle Glade while his
friends were pumping gas.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office, the inci-
dent took place on Wednesday,


Jan. 10 at about 2:30 p.m. at a gas
station on 281 S. Main St.
The man was sitting in the back
of a white 1998 Lincoln Navigator
before sustaining the gunshot
wound.
When police arrived at the
scene, they saw that a window in
the vehicle was shattered.
Spokeswoman Teri Barbera
said that a witness, who was in the


back seat with 24-year-old Atticus
Jones at the time, jumped out of
the vehicle and shouted, 'He shot
himself..'
Ms. Barbera said that the wit-
ness was uncooperative with the
investigators when asked how the
shooting had occurred.
Investigators do not know who
the driver of the vehicle was, but
believe that the driver was pump-


ing gas at the time of the shooting.
The PBSO has yet to determine
whether the shooting was acciden-
tal or intentional. The investigation
is ongoing.
The victim was taken to Glades
General Hospital, then transferred
to St. Mary's Hospital for further
observation.

CDBG project helps situate local families


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON The city of
Clewiston and Hendry County's
SHIP program are engaged in help-
ing 15 families in the area get a new
start.
The two organizations have
been working together to secure
grants that will help pay for the
rehabilitation, demolition and
replacement of 15 low- and moder-
ate-income housing units through-
out the area.
According to Grants Specialist
Nancy Phillips, the county and
city's request to the state has result-
ed in a $700,000 grant to pay for the
necessarywork.
According to information pro-
vided by the city, the work will take
an estimated three years from
beginning to end. Five of the units
will be occupied by families of very
low incomes.
The city, by participating with


"I think this program is wonderful, it helps peo-
ple who truly need their homes repaired or
replaced. We are truly happy to be able to have
assisted in helping these people who truly need
a healthier and enjoyable home to live."
Iva Pittman,
city clerk/assistant city manager for the city of Clewiston


the county program, secured an
additional $70,000 through its grant
application up to $39,600 will be
allocated to each unit.
Starting in 1974, the CDBG pro-
gram is one of the longest continu-
ously run programs at the Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban
Development. It provides' thou-
sands of grants to municipalities
and states each year.
Work at securing these specific
grants has been continuing since
the local agencies first determined


to make the request several years
ago.
The program is.down to the
final three projects, with several
rehabilitation projects nearing
completion. One of the homes that
will be undergoing extensive
remodeling is located on East Sag-
amore Avenue. Another home on
East Trinidad will be replaced, as
well as one on East Ventura
Avenue.
Clewiston city commissioners
approved the bids for the last round


of homes, awarding one of the bids
to Unique Design Builders and the
other two to Mainstream Construc-
tion.
The work includes intensive
remodeling throughout the interior
and exterior of homes, including
plumbing and electrical work and
demolition and site work, and all
new structure work.
For local leaders, the project
represents a large step in helping
some families recover in the face of
daunting repair and remodeling
work.
"I think this program is wonder-
ful, it helps people who truly need
their homes repaired or replaced,"
said Iva Pittman, city clerk/assistant
city manager for the city of Clewis-
ton. "We are truly happy to be able
to have assisted in helping these
people who truly need a healthier
and enjoyable home to live."

Two of three EFI escapees are now in custody


By Eric Kopp
INI FLORIDA
GLADES COUNTY Two
escaped teens from a facility for
juvenile offenders in Venus that
reportedly beat two guards and
stole a car have been captured,
while a third is still on the run.
Jesus A. Duran, 15, and Edward
Russo Woodruff, 14, were appre-
hended Wednesday, Jan. 10, in
Homestead.
Still on the run is 16-year-old
Andrew James Helderman. How-
ever, a spokesperson for the Florida
Environmental Institute (FEI) in
Venus said they are close to appre-
hending him.
"He is going to where his girl-
friend is," said Ginger Watters, who
handles public relations for the
school, which is also known as the
Last Chance Ranch.
Ms. Watters said Helderman
apparently called a graduate of the


facility who, in turn, notified the
school of the teen's whereabouts.
.In a telephone interview Friday,
Jan. 12, Ms. Watters said the two
captured teens "... are in the sys-
tem now..." and will be tried as
adults. Helderman, she said, will
also be charged and tried as an
adult when he is captured.
Duran and Woodruff have been
charged with the felonies of
attempted murder, kidnapping and
escape, she added.
The teens reportedly escaped
from the school on Sunday, Dec.
31. The ranch is located on Ranch
Road in Venus, which is in the
northwest corner of Glades County.
One guard, Winston Leroy Har-
vey, had been struck several times
with a baseball bat. He was taken
to Lee Memorial Hospital with a
broken arm and concussion.and
has since been released from the
hospital, said Ms. Watters.
The other guard, Robert Morris,


was only slightly injured and has
returned to work at the ranch.
According to Chief Deputy C.D.
Pottorf of the Glades County Sher-
iff's Office (GCSO) his department
was notified of the escape around
1:56 a.m. When GCSO Deputy Don
Crosswell arrived he found Mr.
Winston lying inside a vehicle and
covered in blood. He had multiple
injuries about his head.
Mr. Morris told the deputy he
was told by another inmate that a
toilet had backed up, and when he
entered the bathroom to check it
out he was overpowered by the
three teens. He was then stuffed
into a mattress cover and locked
inside a bathroom closet, said Chief
Deputy Pottorf.
The chief deputy went on to say
that Mr. Morris managed to free
himself from his confines in time to
see the three escapees traveling
down the facility's driveway
toward County Road 731 in a beige


19898 Honda Civic. The car was
stolen from the facility, he added.
Chief Deputy Pottorf described
the ranch as"... the last stop before
.juveniles go to prison."
Teens sentenced to the facility
do ranch work and can get a high
school education there.
Since 1990, there have been 380
terminations and 118 GEDs earned
at the school, said Ms. Watters. Of
the terminations, 315 were favor-
able meaning they had met their
goals and graduated from the
ranch. She went on to say 75 of the
terminations were unfavorable.
In 2006 the recidivism rate at FEI
was 31 percent, while the national
average is 59 percent, added Ms.
Watters.

CARBON CAPTURE: Pollution control at FPL Glades Power Park
will be the best that technology has to offer. I am convinced it will be a
good neighbor. I remember a few months ago people would have
supported a regional landfill in Glades County just because we are the
poorest county in the state and badly in need of revenue to provide
essential services. This one project will allow us to keep more of our
land in agricultural uses or pursue alternative energy cash crops that
could be used to produce ethanol while "capturing" carbon naturally.
We'd have a partner, recognized by the World Wildlife Fund, to help us
develop our ecotourism potential.

GET PUBLIC INPUT: I think the county commissioners were wrong
to make such an important decision about our community without
hosting open public meetings to discuss it in advance. The planned
power park will not only affect Glades County, but also all of the com-
munities around the lake.

CARBON DIOXIDE OMISSIONS: I haven't noticed all the "enviros"
who are so worried about carbon dioxide emissions when it comes to
the FPL plant, turning off their air conditioners, shutting down their
computers or parking their cars to car pool over here from the coasts
to raise hell. Has anybody asked them how much carbon dioxide is
produced from their bumper to bumper traffic? If advanced pollution
control procedures have made serious reductions in C02 emissions,
there will be no health hazard for anyone as a result of C02 associated
with the plant.

PAID AD? I just read the statement from FPL regarding the data they
posted about the Glades County Power Park. Was this ad paid for by
FPL to your newspaper? It certainly ignored responses from Glades
residents who are aware that the plant was approved by the Glades
Commission without any public hearings? It seems strange that this
vital information was left out of the "ad."

Power Park features


pollution control


Company plans
state-of-the-art
control measures

JUNO BEACH Florida
Power & Light Company (FPL)
has announced its plan to
include extensive pollution con-
trol systems for capturing mercu-
ry at its advanced technology
coal power plant proposed to be
built near Moore Haven. The
plant will have pollution control
systems that will not only meet
EPA's new strict limit for mercury
emissions but will be 50 percent
below that limit.
"FPL cares about the environ-
ment and the people in Glades
and surrounding areas. Today's
advanced pollution control tech-
nologies provide the ability to
capture mercury at each step of
the process. Because of these pol-
lution control systems the FPL
Glades Power Park will not con-
tribute in any significant way to
local mercury levels. People can
continue to enjoy the same rec-
ommended consumption of fish
from local water bodies," said
Randy LaBauve, vice president of
environmental services, for FPL.
An extensive array of emission
control features will be used at
FPL Glades Power Park:
Selective catalytic reduction
(SCR) removes nitrogen oxide
and enhances removal of mercu-
ry. (SCR is similar to automobile


emission controls called selective
catalytic converters.)
Sorbent injection enhances
mercury removal.
Fabric filter (baghouse)
removes particulates and mercu-
ry.
Wet flue gas desulfurization
(scrubber) removes sulfur diox-
ide and mercury.
Wet electrostatic precipitator
(wet ESP) removes fine particu-
lates and mercury.
"The mercury in Glades Coun-
ty attributable to the proposed
advanced technology coal plant
would be considerably less than
one one-hundredth of the mercu-
ry attributable to other natural
and man-made sources. We have
designed the plant with a focus on
public health and environmental
protection," Mr. LaBauve said.
Overall, emissions of mercury
in the United States from man-
made sources have fallen by
more than 45 percent since pas-
sage of the 1990 Clean Air Act
Amendments. In 2005, the Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency
adopted the Clean Air Mercury
Rule (CAMR) that established
emission limits for power plants.
These standards were updated
in 2006.
Recent regulation, including
those limiting mercury emissions
from chlorine production facilities
that use mercury cells and regula-
tion of industrial and utility boilers
will even further reduce emis-
sions of mercury.

Letters to the Editor


Dear Editor,
One of the down sides of living
in a place where every one knows
everyone's business and being
the victim of false rumors that can
travel from Buckhead Ridge to the
far corners of Palmdale swifter
then the news is published week-
ly. So, it takes a little courage to
speak up about an issue and, sign
your name to a letter rather than
hide under the cloak of anonymi-
ty offered in this newspaper's
Speak Out.
Many people don't like to
make a fuss about our county
commission's deplorable track
record of economic stagnation of
this county out of fear of retribu-
tion, or public mockery. It is easi-
er to keep quiet.
When the county commis-
sioner's made a life changing
decision in May passing zoning
that would allow repugnant pris-
ons and power plants on agricul-
ture lands, and did so in a manner
that was so intently secretive so as
to avoid public comment, that
was a disgrace. Our quality of life
is being changed forever and we
are not even given the courtesy
and respect as citizens who put
them in office and pay their
salaries to question the wisdom
of such an action?
Many residents were on vaca-


tion during the time most of the
so-called public meetings were
held at homeowner's associa-
tions at which FP&L brought their
"dog and pony show" to town.
These public meetings were
nothing more than slick promo-
tions by a very crafty public rela-
tions firm hired by FP&L to per-
suade the troops that
coal-burning is no big deal.
Greatest thing that happened to
Glades County, people are saying.
But I don't believe it. I have been
seriously studying the issue of
coal burning on the internet for a
couple of months and I am learn-
ing some rather terrible truths.
Here is one undeniable fact:
"Energy use in power plants
accounts for 67 percent of air
emissions of sulfur dioxide, the
primary cause of acid rain; 25 per-
cent of nitrogen oxides, which
causes smog; 40 percent of car-
bon dioxide, the primary contrib-
utor to global warming; and 33
percent of mercury, which dam-
ages nervous system develop-
ment in children." ....Clean Ener-
gy Blueprint Resolution of the
Union of Concerned Scientist.
FP&L can brag about how they
exceed the standards set in the
United States for mercury emis-
sions but we can not be proud
that our country's standards rank


as some of the weakest in the
world while we contribute the
most to global warming.
And here's another fact: "Coal
is the hands down dirtiest method
by which to generate electrical
power. Hand waving promises by
FP&L and the watered down EPA
aside, this proposed Glades Coun-
ty coal plant WILL pollute in
many, many ways. This pollution
will not be just a local occurrence
but it will spread in he air and the
water throughout South Florida
and is contraindicated in light of
the national 10 Billion+. dollar
effort to rejuvenate the Everglades
and associated watersheds," Dr.
William Louda, Associate Scien-
tist and the Environmental Chem-
istry Professor, Florida Atlantic
University.
Naturally there wasn't much
debate about these issues at these
public meetings that about 98
percent of the residents, unfortu-
nately, didn't attend. But, even if
there was debate, these FP&L
public relations campaigns Were
calculated to convince residents
that the proposed Glades Power
Park is the best thing to ever hap-
pen to poor little Glades County.
Who really knows about this
kind of thing? Is it possible a huge
national corporation in the lucra-
tive energy industry, the FPL


Group with holdings far and wide,
have motives that are purely prof-
it-driven and not what is best for
the people of this land?
These public meetings are not
the same as holding a Public
Hearing in which the County
Commission must listen to resi-
dents, and others, even scientists,
refute any proposal put before
them. It is a right. It is the law. So
why is it that this proposal of such
serious consequences never
reached the light of day but was
buried in the courthouse, and in
private little cliques, until the
announcement on Sept. 12,
2006? That same day Commis-
sioner Giesler stated that it has
"been hard to keep their mouths
shut the past eight months but
after today he is going out and
start hollering." This startling
admission should make every-
one wonder why it was neces-
sary for the county commission-
ers, and the county staff who
works for them, to keep their
mouths shut? Do they fear open
opposition, informed dialogue
and examination?

EDC endorses FPL power park


GLADES COUNTY As the
new year begins, the Glades
County Economic Development
Council has set a priority on con-
tinuing to work hard to expand
support for the proposed FPL
Glades Power Park.
According to Glades County
Economic Development Council
Executive Director Tracy Whirls,
the EDC board of directors passed
a resolution at their regular meet-
ing Oct. 9 in support of the new,
advanced-technology coal power
plant project in Glades County.
The EDC joined the Moore
Haven City Council, the Glades
County Board of County Commis-
sioners, and the Glades County
School Board in passing resolu-
tions of support for the power
plant. Immediately following,
they lobbied directors of the six
county Heartland region as the
board of Florida's Heartland Rural
Economic Development Initiative
to do the same. FHREDI approved
a resolution supporting the plant
unanimously at their Oct. 16
meeting.
Ms. Whirls said she expects to
ask other economic development
councils to pass resolutions of
support for the project as well,
before taking it to their own coun-
ty commissions.
The potential economic
impact of the proposed power
park is far-reaching, the econom-
ic development director said.
"We already know that the FPL
Glades Power Park project is
expected to contribute more than
$21 million in property taxes each
year in Glades County, on aver-
age, for 30 years," Ms. Whirls said.
"The project's related transmis-
sion and substation facilities will
contribute several million dollars
in property taxes every year to
Hendry County."


School board and taxes paid to
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District and other special
taxing districts are also expected
to be significant.
But the economic impacts will
go far beyond tax revenue gener-
ated. "Construction of the power
plant will employ an average of
1,600 workers annually for five
years," Ms. Whirls said.
"Remember, that's an average.
As many as 3,000 construction
workers may be needed in 2012,
when the first phase is completed
and the second phase is still
under construction," Ms. Whirls
said. "As a matter of fact, we are
already working with school offi-
cials in Hendry and Glades Coun-
ties to begin to identify students
who can be trained as welders
and pipefitters who can begin
work when FPL's new natural gas
powered plant at 20 mile bend
begins construction in the spring
of 2007. Those construction
workers can expect to work
through construction of that facili-
ty, then transfer to the new Glades
County site."
Ms. Whirls said the need for
construction workers is expected
to create jobs for residents of
Hendry, Okeechobee, Highlands,
Hardee and DeSoto Counties, as
well as those from Western Palm
Beach County and as far west as
Lee County.
During the five year construc-
tion of the plant, slated to begin in
2008, once state approvals are
secured, FPL's payroll is expected
to top $275 million.
"That's a sizable infusion of
cash to the "rural area of critical
economic concern," the EDC
director said, noting the FPL will
be working hard to identify local
subcontractors to work on the
project.


The downstream benefits to
local RV parks, hotels and motels,
restaurants and stores are likely to
be enormous.
"I'm not entirely sure there are
1,600 construction workers in the
entire six county region and if
there are, many of those workers
are going to be looking for
accommodations in the area
where they can stay so they can
be close to the job site," Ms.
Whirls said. "Per diem
allowances for those workers are
expected to be as much as $100 a
day, which could mean upwards
of $160,000 a day pumped in to
the local economy."
The impacts on local compa-
nies providing services to the
plant, from South Central Florida
Express, which expects to provide
rail service to the 129 cars daily of
coal which will be delivered to the
plant at buildout, to Glades Elec-
tric, which will provide local elec-
tric service to the plant, to the City
of Moore Haven, which will sup-
ply water and sewer service to the
site, are equally substantial.
At buildout the completed
plant will employ a permanent,
full-time staff of 180, including
technical, managerial and admin-
istrative jobs, with an average
salary of $60,000. The project is
also expected to lead to the cre-
ation of 120 indirect jobs, the EDC
director said.
"For the first time in recent
memory, freshmen at Moore
Haven High School can go to col-
lege and pursue a career path
other than education that will give
them an opportunity to come
home and start a career," Ms.
Whirls said. "There will be new
opportunities, not just for electri-
cal engineers and others
employed at the plant, but for
lawyers and doctors and nurses,


pharmacists and insurance sales-
men to serve them."
Even with all the economic
benefits expected to arise from
the plant, Ms. Whirls said she did-
n't think the EDC or other local
officials would support the proj-
ect if it were as potentially detri-
mental to the local environment
as some would have local resi-
dents believe.
"I think there are some who
read the stuff on the Internet
about coal-powered electric
plants who are understandably
concerned about the idea of hav-
ing a coal-fired plant here," Ms.
Whirls said. "But this is not your
grandfather's coal-fired plant.
This plant is the first of its kind to
be built in the United States, using
technology that's already been
proven in Germany and Japan."
In their site application submit-
tal to'the state Dec. 21, FPL has
committed to 90 percent mercury
removal at FPL Glades Power
Park, and has said carbon dioxide
omissions, blamed for global
warming, will be significantly less
at the advanced technology plant,
which will use less coal than exist-
ing coal powered plants.
"Ultimately, it will be up to
DEP and EPA to verify the various
safeguards on the new plant," Ms.
Whirls said, noting that the com-
pany will be required to submit
their projections, under oath, with
supporting documentation to the
various regulatory bodies.
"I can assure you that neither
the EDC, nor the board of county
commissioners, nor any other
governing body would endorse a
project that would damage our
environment or endanger resi-
dents," Ms. Whirls said. "We live
here too."

know what
breed of dog is the right one for
you? Thanks Doc. Brian and Lisa
in Clewiston.


Answer: Hey Brian and Lisa.
So, you are ready for a dog? It's a
big decision and responsibility.
Will both of you be working? Will
you be out of the home for long
hours? If so, how will potty train-
ing go?
Do you have a home with a big
yard, or a condo or apartment
with weight restrictions on the
pet's size? This may minimize
your choices right away. Do have
or expect to have children in the
next 10 years? Maybe a child
friendly breed of dog is a good
choice.
In any respect, a dog is a huge
responsibility. They need your
company, love and care. You will
have to factor in the cost of vet vis-

its too!
Maybe instead of a pure breed,
you may consider adopting from
Animal Care and Control?
Just a few thoughts...

GCSO raids a marijuana grow house


By Eric Kopp
INI Florida
LABELLE It may be a new
year, but investigators from the
Glades County Sheriff's Office
(GCSO) have picked up right
where they left off last year by bust-
ing another marijuana grow house.
A brand new, three-bedroom
and two-bath house in LaBelle was
raided Thursday, Jan. 11, when 262
marijuana plants were seized. Also
seized were grow lights, electrical
supplies, fertilizers and air condi-
tioning units.
Arrested at the 16061 West
Leader Circle home was Sonny
Amaro Sanchez, 24. Sanchez also
lists a Cape Coral address.
Following the raid, Sanchez was
taken into custody by agents from
the U.S. Marshal's Service in Fort
Myers. Members of the Drug
Enforcement Administration
(DEA) took control of the evidence
for the purpose of federally prose-
cuting Sanchez.
GCSO Detective Steve Harris
said it was estimated that the mari-
juana had a value of $300,000. He
added that some of the plants were
still budding.
Detective Harris said the home
was solely used for the purpose of
growing marijuana.
"Two of the three bedrooms,
one bathroom and half of the fami-
ly room were being used for the
grow," said Detective Harris.
GCSO investigators have been
watching the home for several
months, said Glades County Sheriff
StuartWhiddon.


Submitted photo/Glades County Sheriff's Office
Investigators from the Glades County Sheriff's Office
(GCSO) raided a home in LaBelle on Jan. 11 and seized 262
marijuana plants, said GCSO Detective Steve Harris. Also
seized were grow lights, electrical supplies, fertilizers and air
conditioning units.
"This is an epidemic through-
out Florida and all small counties
are not immune from these illegal
operations," added the sheriff.
"We will investigate and prose-
cute state or federally any and all
people involved in any type of /
drug activity." -
The GCSO broke up six large
marijuana growing operations in .
2006, said Detective Harris.
It was not known as of newspa-
per deadline if a bond amount had .. '
been established for Sanchez.

School News in Brief


Help your child
succeed in school
"PASSport to Success" is a

aside time, listen to their children,
help then get ready to take a test,
take notes, and much more.
The PASSport to Success series
is held every Wednesday from 9
a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the Glades

Funds for MHHS
What if Moore Haven Junior
Senior High School earned a
penny every time you searched
the Internet? Well, now we can!
GoodSearch.com is a new
search engine that donates half its
revenue, about a penny per


search, to the charities its users
designate. You use it just as you
would any search engine, and it's
powered by Yahoo!, so you get
great results.
Just go to
www.goodsearch.com and be
sure to enter Moore Haven Junior
Senior High School as the charity
you want to support. Just 500 of
us searching four times a day will
raise about $7,300 in a year with-
out anyone spending a dime!
And, be sure to spread the word!

It's Girl Scout cookie time!


The Girl Scout Cookie Sale has
begun and girls in Clewiston and
Moore Haven are taking orders
now! The cookies will arrive on
Feb. 9, and orders will be delivered
during the following week. Booth
sales will also begin then, so watch
for Girl Scouts in front of local gro-
cery stores.
There are seven varieties of Girl
Scout cookies offered this year. The
traditional shortbread Trefoils, Thin
Mints and Samoas with caramel
and coconut are perennial
favorites. The peanut butter sand-
wich cookies, Do-si-dos, and Taga-
longs with chocolate and peanut
butter are back. The All About with
layers of chocolate and shortbread
has a message on each cookie cele-
brating what Girl Scouting is all
about. The crisp Caf6 cookie with
brown sugar and cinnamon is


great with coffee.
The new cookie this year is
sugar free! They are bite size Little
Brownies.
You may notice some of the
cookies have different names this
year. Nationally, the Girl Scouts of
the USA is in the process of realign-
ing the Girl Scout Councils. Glades
County and eastern Hendry County
are now part of the Girl Scouts of
Gulfcoast Florida. The cookies are
supplied by a different bakery than
the one used by the Girl Scout
council on the east coast of Florida.
Give them a taste test!
Girl Scouts builds girls of charac-
ter, confidence and courage who
make the world a better place. They


have fun earning badges on a wide
variety of topics from the arts to sci-
ence and nature and sports. They
take field trips, go camping and
serve the community. By participat-
ing in the cookie program, they not
only earn money to fund their activi-
ties, but also learn about goal set-
ting, handling money responsibly,
and speaking in public.
There are new troops in Moore
Haven and Clewiston that have
space for a few more girls. If you
know a girl who would benefit
from being a Girl Scout or if you are
interested in volunteering to help,
call Barbara Van Essen at the Girl
Scout Service Center at 1-(800)-
586-3186 ext. 404.

Hunting is and was good


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
There is still enough open land
around Lake Okeechobee to have
good hunting.
Where the early settlers hunted
to live, people today hunt for sport
or to enjoy the taste of game
meats. Today, there are "hunting
buggies."
Yesteryear's hunting buggies
were a bit different, though and
hunting was more common and
more widespread. Few people
who drive past the Okeechobee
County Courthouse with the new
Judicial Center know that people
used to hunt there as recently as
1920.
Jesse Motes, now 84 years old,
was born in Belle Glade in 1922.
He remembers the hunting there:
"My father earned a living trapping
and farming in Florida. Back then,
nothing was drained and the only
farming was close in to town, you
see, not way out like now. That's
why trapping was so good. The
saw grass was full of game. There
was a good market for raccoon
pelts. When the price was good
we could get $3 to $4 apiece for
them. We used to get bobcats too.
There were a lot of them back
then.
"When you were out in the
Glades on foot trapping, in the dry
weather, you had to watch for the
big cracks. The black dirt would
dry up and shrink and make
cracks big enough that you could
go almost up to your knee inside
the crack if you weren't careful."
Up north of Basinger on the
Kissimmee Prairie or "Viking" as it
is also called, people have hunted
as long as people have lived here.
The late Thelma Walker, who was
87 years old when Twila Valentine
interviewed her for the Okee-
chobee News in 1989, remem-
bered her husband, John Henry
Walker, Jr., going out on hunting
parties:
"A crowd of men used to get
together and go our in the woods
and camp and deer hunt. There
was Don and Carl Walker and
Hardy Walker and Jinx Linden. I
can't remember all of them. They
went our and they would get a

"This was my cousin, W.D. with his hunting buggy after a
hunting trip with raccoon hides and some panthers. The
house in the background is the house that floated during
the storm of 1928," said Jesse Motes.


INI/MaryAnn Morris
Airboats like this one on the Kissimmee River are often used
by hunters to go deep into marsh areas to hunt.


Recollections

pioneers and history

i.




cook to go with them and do the
cooking so they could hunt. They
killed a lot of deer up there on the
prairie. Close to the Peavine, that is
where it is," she said. Note: the
paved road that runs north to the


Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State
Park is the old Peavine Trail.
People still hunt up on "The
Prairie" in the Viking area and in
the marshes around Belle Glade,
Clewiston and Moore Haven, but
with modern guns, air boats and
hunting buggies. South Florida
Water Management District, when
it sets aside land for collecting
water, filtering water or such, usu-
ally opens it to the public for vari-
ous kinds of hunting. More and
more land is being set aside and
opened all the time, so the tradi-
tion of hunting in the 'Glades and
on the Prairie, it seems will contin-
ue. At least one pioneer tradition
won't be bulldozed under.


Sugar pageant making changes


CLEWISTON The fair and
festival season in the next several
months is going to be bringing sev-
eral weekends of fun, excitement,
rides and food, and it is also going
to be bringing some of the prettiest
young ladies in the area to the stage
of the Miss Sugar pageant.
Last Wednesday, Miss Sugar
pageant director Pam Kelley gath-
ered her planning committee to
begin discussing ideas and sched-
ule for this year's pageant.
The theme of the 2007 Miss
Sugar Pageant will encompass a
western feel and be aptly titled
"Miss Sugar 2007 Gone Coun-
try."
There are several changes in
store for this year's pageant, most
notably the lack of an overall pag-
eant sponsor. Last year, Sugar Real-
ty stepped to the forefront as the
title sponsor for the event, the first
time the pageant has had a spon-
sor since Mrs. Kelley's involve-
ment.
In recent years the Sugar Festi-
val Committee has paid for the
pageant and prior to the commit-
tee's involvement the cost was
underwritten by the U.S. Sugar
Corporation.
"Luan stepping in to help last
year was huge for the pageant,"
said Director Kelley, "Her sponsor-
ship allowed us to not only put on a
better pageant but also be able to
provide more scholarship money
than we had been able to in the
past and that was huge for the
girls."
The Miss Sugar committee is
planning to recruit smaller spon-
sorship opportunities that would
allow the scholarship money to
remain the same for the winner of
the pageant while the overall cost
of putting the pageant on would
then revert back to the Sugar Festi-
val Committee.
Anyone that would like to
become a sponsor of the 2007 pag-
eant or make donations to be used
for the scholarships awarded can
contact Pam Kelley by calling either
(863) 902-2857 or (863) 228-3041.
Another change for the 2007
pageant is the inclusion of a grade
point average (GPA) of at least 2.0
for all contestants. There has been
no academic standard required in
years past but under the suggestion


[StartI theNew


Yaotrg1


of committee member Angie Kel-
ley such a requirement was taken
under consideration and adopted
this year.
Pageant Director Pam Kelley
said the committee adopted the
requirement because "this is a
scholarship pageant and the
money should go to a young lady
who is intent on using the money
for education. Instituting the GPA
requirement is a step in the right
direction." The committee is also
accepting volunteers who would
like to take part in the decorating or
publicity aspects of the 2007 pag-
eant and anyone interested can
contact the phone numbers previ-
ously given in this article.
The Miss Sugar scholarship pag-
eant will be held at the John Boy


auditorium on April 14. Contes-
tants must be 15 years old prior to
the date of the event and under 19
years of age. The entry fee is $100.
The entry deadline is fast
approaching as all entries must be
turned in at the parents meeting on
February 8. Entry forms can be
obtained at: Clewiston High
School, The Chamber of Com-
merce, Clewiston Library, and the
Clewiston Youth Center.
"One thing I will promise is that
anyone who comes aboard as a
sponsor, volunteer, or just makes a
donation is that they can rest
assured they will be playing an
active role in providing a positive
future to our areas youth," said
Director Kelley "and for that we
can't say thankyou enough."

Tips help keep insects out of the pantry


A reader was horrified to find
bugs in the pancake mix.
She bought the box of pan-
cake mix on sale and had almost
forgotten about it when she
found it in her pantry. It was still
sealed and had not passed the
expiration date, so she figured it
was still good. But when she
started mixing up a batch of pan-
cakes, she saw brown spots in
the mix. A little more careful
inspection revealed they were
weevils.
This story is not unusual.
Weevils may show up on corn
meal, cereal, rice, pasta, flour or
any food product containing
flour or rice.
Weevils are a type of beetle.
They normally live in fields and
feed on grain plants such as rice
and wheat. When the crop is
harvested, some of these insects
are accidentally collected with
the grain. While harvesters and
processors try to remove all of
the insects and insect eggs from
the grain, some slip through.
Insect eggs are the most com-
mon form of contamination,
since they may be difficult to


A
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken

detect. These eggs may not
hatch until long after the product
is bagged and sealed for sale.
Even if a product is free of
insects when it is originally pack-
aged, some insects might find
their way in along the way in a
warehouse or a storage area, or
from an infested bag of flour to
other food items in someone's
pantry.
Some tips to keep your pantry
as insect-free as possible:
Check food packages at the
store. Do not buy a package if it
appears to be damaged, or if the
expiration date has passed, or
could expire before you use the
product. Be wary of "buy one,
get one free" sales. Often the


products on sale have been on
the shelf or in the warehouse -
for a long time. The older a bag
of flour or rice is, the greater the
chance it might contain weevils.
Don't buy more flour, rice,
cornmeal or pasta than you will
use in a week. The longer you
have a food package, the more
likely insects might hatch and
reproduce or find their way in.
Remember that cereal is a
grain product. Once you open a
box of cereal, and break the seal
on the plastic inside, transfer the
contents to an airtight container.
When you open a package,
if you are not going to use all of it
immediately, put the remainder
in an airtight container.
Store food in a cool, dry
place. Some foods may be refrig-
erated or frozen for longer stor-
age.
Routinely clean out your
cabinets and discard any foods
that have passed their expiration
date.
Don't mix old food prod-
ucts with new. For example, if
the flour in your canister is low,
use it all up, and clean out the


canister, before opening a new
bag to fill the canister.
Most weevils are not really a
health hazard. According to the
USDA, weevils don't carry dis-
ease. If you ate something from
a package before noticing the
bugs, you probably won't get
sick from that. Besides, the heat
of cooking would sterilize the
food.
If you're squeamish about
bugs, consider this pesticides
used to kill insects could be
more dangerous to your health
than the bugs are.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, con-
sult your doctor. This is especial-
ly important if you are on any
prescription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that might otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

Birth defects hurt many families


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
acknowledges January as National
Birth Defects Prevention Month.
The DOH sees the tremendous
impact birth defects have on Flori-
da's families and children. Birth
defects affect over 6,000 (one in 35)
newborns in Florida each year and
are one of the leading causes of
infant mortality and contribute sig-
nificantly to long-term disabilities.
"Babies born with birth defects
and related deficiencies are a seri-
ous matter in Florida and around
the world," said DOH Interim Sec-
retary Joseph Chiaro, M.D., FAAP.
"Our surveillance program allows
us to monitor the numbers and
types of birth defects that are
occurring so we can develop pre-
vention, intervention and referral
programs to assist affected indi-
viduals, families and their health
care providers."
Some commonly occurring
birth defects include:
Congenital Heart Defects: dis-
orders of the heart present at birth
which affects about one in 100-200
babies.
Chromosomal Abnormalities:
disorders involving chromosomes,
affecting about one in 200 babies.
Neural Tube Defects (NTDs):
disorders of the spine (spina bifi-
da) and brain (anencephaly)
which affects about one in 1000
pregnancies.
Orofacial Clefts: disorders of
the lip and/or roof of the mouth,
affecting about one 700-1000
babies.
Spina bifida and anencephaly
are common and serious birth
defects known as neural tube

around the world. Our surveillance program
allows us to monitor the numbers and types of

defects (NTDs). In 2003, approxi-
mately 106 infants in Florida were
born with NTDs. To reduce this
number, women who are capable
of becoming pregnant should con-
sume 400 micrograms of the B vita-
min folic acid every day. Since
NTDs occur early in pregnancy,
before many women know they
are pregnant, women should take
folic acid before conception and
continue during early pregnancy.
Folic acid can be obtained from
multivitamins, dietary supple-
ments and fortified foods in addi-
tion to consuming a diet contain-
ing folate-rich foods.
In January 2005, DOH and the
March of Dimes Florida Chapter
received funding from the Attorney
General's Office to establish the
Florida VitaGrant Program. The
program distributes multivitamins,
folic acid educational materials and
preconception and interconcep-
tion health materials to under-
served women of childbearing age
through county health depart-
ments and community based


organizations throughout Florida.
Some birth defects are prevent-
able. A woman who is pregnant
or planning a pregnancy should
avoid alcohol, smoking, illegal
drugs, and medications which can
cause birth defects and pregnancy
complications.
DOH recommends that all
women plan their pregnancies
and go for a pre-pregnancy check-
up to talk with their health care
provider about maintaining a
healthy diet and incorporating
exercise. Women should also dis-
cuss pre-existing medical condi-
tions such as diabetes, obesity,
seizures, family history of birth
defects or other poor pregnancy
outcomes and possible exposures
to hazardous chemicals.
DOH promotes and protects the
health and safety of all people in
Florida through the delivery of
quality public health services and
the promotion of health care stan-
dards. For more information,

Wouldn't it be neat to feel that way about your bank?
Good banking is all about good relationships. And that takes
one-on-one attention, open minds and a willingness to give more
than 1000'. It goes way beyond convenient hours (we have them)
and free online banking and bill pay (we have those, too.) It takes
honesty, commitment and good old-fashioned hard work. Just like
a good marriage. Only not as romantic.

Health Department offers toy safety tips


LABELLE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
and the Safe Kids Florida Coali-
tion remind Florida residents
and visitors to put safety first
when purchasing toys and gifts
for children. Parents and care-
givers can make sure they are
choosing safe toys for their chil-
dren by paying close attention to
warning labels and manufactur-
ers' guidelines.
"If the manufacturer sets a
minimum age or other restric-
tions, there is a wise reason. It is,
therefore, imperative for both
children and parents to carefully
follow the instructions," said
Hendry and Glades County
Health Department Director Nef-


tali Fernandez, M.D.
Nationwide, approximately
160,000 children per year ages
14 and under are treated in
emergency rooms for toy-related
injuries; nearly half of these chil-
dren are under age five.
The Safe Kids Florida Coali-
tion recommends the following
precautions:
Use a small parts tester
(available in quantity from the
Safe Kids Resource Catalog) or
the cardboard tube from a roll of
toilet paper to identify choking
hazards. Do not let small chil-
dren play with anything that can
fit into one of these cylinders.
Inspect toys to make sure
they are in good repair. Do not


let young children play with toys
that have straps, cords or strings
longer than seven inches, due to
the risk of strangulation.
Supervise children playing
with any toy that has small parts,
moving parts, electrical or bat-
tery power, cords, wheels or any
other potentially risky compo-
nent. Simply being in the same
room as your child is not neces-
sarily supervising. Active super-
vision means keeping the child
in sight and in reach as well as
providing undivided attention.


Teach children to put toys
away after playing to help pre-
vent falls and unsupervised play.
Also make sure that toys intend-
ed for younger children are
stored separately from those for
older children. Toy chests should
be equipped or retrofitted with
safety hinges that prevent the lid
from closing on a child who is
leaning over the open chest; if a
chest does not have safety
hinges, remove the lid.
The Hendry/Glades County
Health Department promotes


and protects the health and safe-
ty of our two counties through
the delivery of quality health
services and the promotion of
health care standards. For addi-
tional information please con-

Paradoxes of Christianity are just part of God's way


By Jackie Miller
Minister, First Christian Church
First, what is a paradox? It is not
a couple of medical professionals;
it is not a disease of a parasite. A
paradox is a statement that
appears to say two opposite things.
For instance, "More hasteless
speed." It is a statement that
appears to be contradictory of
absurd. A paradox is illustrated by
what the Apostle Paul wrote con-
cerning the plight of the apostles as
they minister in the word. In 2
Corinthians 6:9-10, we read: "As
unknown, yet well known, as
dying, yet behold we live, as pun-
ished, yet not put to death, as sor-
rowful, yet always rejoicing, as
poor, yet making many rich, as hav-
ing nothing, but possessing all
things." There are some paradoxes
in the life and ministry of Christ,
too. He created all things yet He
had nowhere to lay his head. He
was rich but became poor. Much
of His teaching was in contrast to
the practice and hope of his time.
Especially this is noted in His "Ser-
mon on the Mount."
A Christian does not do the
things which come naturally. We


can see this in some of the para-
doxes that we will consider.
One Christian paradox is "We
die to live." The Apostle Paul said in
Galatians 2:20 "1 have been cruci-
fied with Christ; and it is not longer I
who live, but Christ lives in me; and
the life I now live in the flesh I live
by faith in the Son of God who
loved me and gave himself for me."
This truth is demonstrated in
nature in that the seed must die
before it can bring forth new life. A
Christian has died to the flesh with
its passions and desires and to self.
(Gal. 5:24)
A second Christian paradox is
"We lose to gain." Jesus taught in
Matthew 16:25, "For whoever
wishes to save his life shall lose it;
but whoever loses his life for My
sake shall find it." The Apostle Paul
experienced this as he wrote in
Philippians 3:7-8 "But whatever
things were gain, those things I
counted loss for the sake of Christ.
More than that, I count all things to
be loss in view of the surpassing
value of knowing Jesus Christ my
Lord; for whom I count them but
rubbish in order that I may gain
Christ." We lose the things that are


material that we might gain the
things that are spiritual. We lose the
things that are temporal that we
may gain the things that are eternal.
A third Christian paradox is "We
give to receive." Jesus said in Luke
6:38, "Give, and it will be given to
you, good measure, pressed down,
shaken together, running over, they
will pour into your lap. For by your
standard measure it will be meas-
ured to you in return." In the Old
Testament Book of Proverbs we
have this promise of God in
Proverbs 28:27 "He who gives to
the poor shall never want. But he
who shuts his eyes will have many
curses." Again this principle is
taught by the Apostle Paul in I1
Corinthians 9:8 "Now I say, he who
sows sparingly shall reap also spar-
ingly; and he who sows bountifully
shall also reap bountifully. Let each
one do just as he has purposed in
his heart; not grudgingly under
compulsion: for God loves a cheer-
ful giver. And God is able to make
all grace abound to you. That
always having all sufficiency in
everything, you may have an abun-
dance for every good deed."
A fourth Christian paradox is


"We are humbled to be exalted."
The Apostle Peter writes in I Peter
5:6 "Humble your selves, therefore
under the mighty hand of God, that
He may exalt you in proper time."
This philosophy is certainly con-
trary to what is seen in the "dog-
eat-dog" practice in the business
world today.
A fifth Christian paradox is "We
must be least in order to be great-
est." To settle and argument
among His disciples as to who was
the greatest among them, Jesus
took a little child for an object
lesion and said to them in Luke
9:48 Whoever receives this little
child in my name, receives me; and
whoever receives me receives him
that sent me; for he who is least
among you, this is the one who is
great." Jesus taught that the one
who is the greatest servant is the
greatest in God's sight.
A sixth Christian paradox is "We
rejoice in persecution and glory in
affliction." In the sermon on the
mount, Jesus said in Matthew 5:10-
13, "Blessed are those who have
been persecuted for righteousness
sake, for theirs is the kingdom of
Heaven. Blessed are you when


men cast insults at you, and perse-
cute you, and say all kinds of evil
against you falsely, on account of
me. Rejoice and be glad, for your
reward in Heaven is great. For so,
they persecuted the prophets
before you." The Apostle Peter
taught this same thing in I Peter
4:13-16.
A seventh paradox is "We
return good for evil." The Apostle
Paul wrote in Romans 12:17-21
"Never pay back evil for evil to any-
one. Respect what is right in the
sight of all men. If possible so far as
it depends on you, be at peace will
all men. Never take your own


revenge, beloved.
But leave room for the wrath of
God. For it is written, vengeance is
mine, I will repay, says the Lord.
But if your enemy is hungry, feed
him.
And if he is thirsty, give him
drink, for in so doing you will heap
coals of fire upon his head. Do not
be overcome with evil, but over-
come evil with good."
The Bible does not teach that
we are to be doormats for people
to trample on or that we are to let
people take advantage of us. But
the bottom line is that we take care
of these matters in God's way.

Sharing a cookie recipe worth $250


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
As the email shared, Neiman
Marcus charged a customer $250
for its cookie recipe instead of the
$2.50 the
woman had
been expecting
to pay. As
revenge for the
store refusing
to drop the
charges, the
woman decid-
ed to share the
recipe with John
friends and Hicks
invited them to
pass it on to as many people as
possible.
This story not only invites, but
demands participation. After all,
as she shared, "I paid for it, now
you can have it for free." It's a
classic David and Goliath story.
It's the story of the little guy
whacking the big corporation
right where it hurts, something
you and I have always longed to
do. By forwarding this recipe on,
we can join in the fun and be arm-
chair heroes.
Unfortunately, it's just that, "a
story". I know it's hard to believe


that a forwarded, anonymous,
sent to a million people email
would be false, but that's the way
the cookie crumbles.
There is a 1948 cookbook that
lists a recipe for a $25 Fudge Cake.
The explanation for the name
was that a lady had to pay $25 for
a recipe she asked for from a chef
on a train. The chef sent it to her
with a bill for $25 which the lady's
attorney told her she had to pay.
So she gave the recipe to all of her
friends and encouraged them to
share it with others.
Sound familiar?
In 1960, Waldorf-Astoria hotel
was the bad guy when the chef
charged a woman $350 for a
dessert known as "Red Velvet
Cake". Her way of getting even -
to distribute the recipe far and
wide. In 1970, it was Mrs. Field's
cookies. In the 1990's the finger
pointed at Neiman-Marcus. And
it's still circulating!
In the Neiman-Marcus case,
the legend has a number of
improbabilities.
There is no Neiman-Marcus
Cafe in any of the Dallas stores.
Until just recently, there was no
Neiman-Marcus cookie. As a mat-
ter of fact, Neiman-Marcus devel-


oped a chocolate chip cookie in
response to the rumor.
Finally, Neiman-Marcus does
not sell recipes from its restau-
rants. The store gives them away
free to anyone who asks.
In our life, we will encounter
many stories that at first thought
would touch our hearts and emo-
tions and invite us to join in the
righting of a wrong. Sometimes
we hear stories about situations
or people that we would like to
believe are true.
For instance, the story of Peti-
tion 2493 about banning religious
programming from the airways is
also circulating again. Dr. Dobson
is not calling for Christians to
respond. There is no Petition 2493
out there today. It died when it
was denied in 1975. Even now,
most of the concerns raised aren't
relevant to the petition.
It would do us well to be
informed before we jump on the
bandwagon. There is wisdom
found in the words of God found
in Job 34:3-4. "For the ear tests
words as the tongue tastes food.
Let us discern for ourselves what
is right; let us learn together what
is good."
As for the $250 cookie recipe,


here it is. Enjoy it and share it!
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons granulated
sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons instant espres-
so coffee powder
1-1/2 cups semi-sweet choco-
late chips
Cream the butter with the sug-
ars using an electric mixer until
fluffy.
Beat in the egg and the vanilla
extract. In a mixing bowl, sift
together the dry ingredients and
beat into the butter mixture at low
speed for about 15 seconds. Stir in
the espresso coffee powder and
chocolate chips.
Drop cookie dough onto a
greased cookie sheet about 3
inches apart. Gently press down
on the dough with the back of a
spoon to spread out into a 2 inch
circle. Bake in a 300 degree oven
for about 20 minutes or until nice-
ly browned around the edges.
Yields 2 dozen cookies.

Closing doors, opening doors and our basic qualities


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There was a couple who had
worked hard all of their lives,
raised their children, saved, and
helped others along the way. They
sat down and talked one day
about doing something for them-
selves for a change. Their kids
were grown; they had money in
the bank, the business could get
along without them for awhile,
why not take a trip? They chose to
go see long-lost relatives and
made their plans. A few days
before they were to leave, the
husband suffered a fatal heart
attack and everything was quickly
cancelled. The widow told me "I
knew something was going to
happen, I knew it was too good to
be true, I knew it really wasn't
going to happen at all." We went
through the funeral and spent
time afterwards trying to cope
with a new-found loneliness and
unwanted separation. As another
Church member put it, "You don't
get over it, you get through it" and
she was right. One day the widow
announced that she was going to
return to her relatives and moving
"back home." Her children stayed
behind; they were grown now
with their own families and well-
situated in their own lives. It was
after a few years of not seeing her
that the widow came back to our
community to visit. I met her once
more when she came to church
one Sunday. She was a different
person now, alive, excited about
her job in a bakery, telling me
about how everything was
"booming" where she was living,
about new friends and about her


family and all of the activities
around her. It occurred to me that
I had met someone with great
resilience; someone who had
fully committed herself for many
years to her wewq ',
home, hus- ,
band, children,
community .
and work. A .
key part had
been taken
away but the
loss was not 1
overwhelm-
ing; the role SamuelS.
that had filled Thomas
her life had
given way to a new life and new
happiness but she also carried a
part of herself with her. God does
not close doors without opening
other doors. The Lord entered the
life of Peter and Andrew, fisher-
men, and suddenly changed their
lives by saying "I will make you
fishers of men." I can envision
them as being fishermen; tending
nets, fixing leaks in their boats,
being concerned about family
and friends; having to worry
about the price the catch was
going to bring, sharing the com-
panionship of the other fisher-
men around them, enjoying the
in-house stories of their trade.
This was all to be changed
when they were called to a new
kind of fishing. The same
resilience, the same capacity to
commit themselves, the same
willingness to fulfill the role given
to them went with them as they
went from being fishermen to dis-
ciples. In return, a new day and
new universe opened up to them.
The loss was not a loss but a
change that would prove a hun-
dredfold more satisfying and ful-


filling than the past.
With it all would come the
knowledge that there was an
even greater part in God's scheme
of things; a bonus that was really
the reason for it all. The Lord did-
n't choose to tell them "I have a
new life for you" or "I've got
something that will interest you";
when he spoke to Peter and
Andrew, there was that tie to the
life they knew "...fishers of men."
The same qualities that made
them good fishermen would be
carried with them and, they
would bring to their new lives the
confidence and assurance that it
would all work out. Losses would


not be defeats, tragedies would
not devastate and cripple, sad-
ness would be normal but would
not be overwhelming, a "catch"
or "no catch" would not make or
break them because they were
really "fishermen" and not
defined by the losses or victories
of one day. We do others and our-
selves good when we share in
that Old Testament assurance
from Job: "I know that my
redeemer liveth..." and know that
we will live with God too in the
long run. He will not close doors
without opening others, nor take
without giving, nor see us fall if
we stay close to Him.

IDo-It-Yourself Ideas


Composting Bins
Backyard composting is more popular now than ever.
Composting reduces the volume of leaves, grass clip-
pings and food scraps that usually goes into the
garbage and then into landfills. Also, the nutrient-
rich humus it produces enriches backyard soil and
eliminates the need for store-bought amendments
and fertilizers.
A do-it-yourself composting system like this one
simplifies the process, is easy to put together and is
less expensive than buying one ready-made. The
three pieces are made from standard redwood and
almost all of the cuts are straight cuts.
