Fire near Lake Okeechobee


Incident may have
been caused by
an arsonist

By Naji Tobias
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY A brush
fire swept through a portion of
Glades County over the weekend
and continued into the week.
The fire, officials said, began on
Saturday, Feb. 24 at Old Sports-


man's Village, about five miles
south of Lakeport. Another fire
was started on Sunday east of the
Moore Haven canal.
The brushfires extended all the
way to Uncle Joe's Fish Camp,
near Liberty Point.
According to Florida Division of
Forestry Area Supervisor Tim
Elder, about 39,000 acres of land
will have been burned once the
smoke and ashes are cleared.
Mr. Elder said that in a natural
fire, the burning is usually caused


by lightning.
In this case, however, that
doesn't seem to be the case. Mr.
Elder said preliminary information
seemed to suggest that someone
started the fire.
Winds on Monday and Tues-
day were blowing toward the
southwest, which in effect
reduced the smoke and fire impact
on Glades County residents.
However, much smoke and
ash could be seen around the area
as the fires were dying down.


An elaborate display: Seminole dollmaker


Many residents showed concern
regarding the fire.
Mr. Elder said that the remain-
der of the fire was to be completely
extinguished by late Tuesday.
The area is prone to brush fires.
About six years ago, a similar
fire occurred, beginning at Obser-
vation Island and extending north-
west to the Lakeport area.
No one was injured in this
recent brushfire. Wildlife around
the area was not negatively affect-
ed by the fire, according to Mr.


Elder.
"In this case, wildlife actually
will benefit from the brushfire
now that the dead vegetation on
the land will have been removed,"
said Mr. Elder.
Mr. Elder said that in its natural
process, the dead vegetation will
be replaced by a fresh kind,
improving.the quality of life for the
wildlife.
Mr. Elder said the fire could

Experts speak



about Glades



Power Park


Over 300 people
attend special
meeting

By Nena Bolan
Glades CoOnty Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Glades
County hosted a special meet-
ing Feb. 20 to discuss one of
the biggest issues in the coun-
ty today.
A panel of experts was on
hand to speak to the public
about the proposed FPL power
plant. Larry Hilton, community
development director, informed
the audience of the project
overview, and then introduced
all experts before it was their


turn to speak.
Florida Power and Light has
chosen to build an ultra-super
critical pulverized coal (USCPC)
power plant instead of an inte-
grated gasification combined
cycle (IGCC) power plant.
Technology selection speak-
er, Steve Jenkins of Tampa,
designs power plants across the
United States and is an expert in
coal gasification.
Mr. Jenkins explained that
there is misinformation about
how IGCC plants are more effi-
cient, capture carbon dioxide
(CO2) and emit less pollution
than USCPC plants.
He said that these are myths

If you love Seminole patchwork, beaded jewelry and dolls then you should have seen
Judybill Osceola at the Swamp Cabbage Festival in LaBelle. She has recently retired
from working for the Seminole Tribe of Florida where she was an enrollment adminis-
trator and manager of the arts and crafts shop in Hollywood. Now, she can devote time
to her gifted craft skills.




Native American displays


unique silversmith jewelry


Brighton Festival
is venue for
General Grant

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
BRIGHTON SEMINOLE
RESERVATION There were
many arts and crafts vendors at
the three day Brighton Rodeo
and Festival in mid-February.
Many beautiful displays of
jewelry and art caught the eyes
ofvisitors.
Unique among these are the
silversmith works and purple
wampum shell creations of
"General Grant" whose her..
itage is one-half Sioux and one
half-Cherokee.
His home is on the reserva-
tion in Cherokee, North Caroli-
na; but he likes to travel to


shows like the Seminoles' have
every year on the Brighton
Reservation in Glades County.
His amazing spider designs
on heavy, silver concho belts,
bracelets and bolo ties may
look different to admirers of
Native American skilled crafts.
However, the spider is a truly
prehistoric design used by
ancient peoples of the Missis-
sippi River Valley and in the
southeastern part of the United
States.
General Grant wants to
bring the little known image of
the spider to light in the world
and keep it alive by casting it in
sterling silver. Then it can be
worn or displayed for others to
see and remember.
Another historic source of
Mr. Grant's hand crafted jewel-
ry comes from the purple-
streaked quahog clam shell


and is better known as
wampum.
Throughout the Atlantic
coast, indigenous people
regarded the wampum beads
with great value because of its
ceremonial history. When
Europeans arrived on the conti-
nent they saw the great value
that wampum had, but mis-
took it for currency.
According to Mr. Grant, it
was made into seven differently
designed belts; and he wishes
to re-create all seven designs
with his own hand crafted
beads made from purple
wampum.
"I am the only artist that cuts
and manufactures my own
shell patterns. They are all indi-
vidual pieces," he said.
Over the years, General

SING, NRDC and
Audubon reps in

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Oppo-
nents of the FPL Power Plant
attended a special meeting at
the Doyle Conner Building on
Feb. 20.
The event was hosted by


Glades County and featured a
panel of experts who advised cit-
izens about the proposed FPL
power plant.
Earlier that afternoon an
organized group known as Save
It Now, Glades (SING) demon-
strated their right to freedom of
speech.
They carried signs and sta-
tioned themselves on the side-
walk near the intersection of
10th Street and U.S. 27.

al therapy, audiology, and nursing.

teered their time to see patients and
supervise the students. Nova

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public ins-titutions are carrying
out their public riii.i.n.

But too many newspapers these day.i act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by emiioling feedb.cki'nlewv/aip io:(mi or calling your editor.

"This educator's commit-
ment to reading and reading
practice is commendable. The
success Naomi has achieved is a
shining example of the differ-
ence librarians can make in their
students' lives," said Judi Paul,
Chairman of the Board of
Renaissance Learning.
To receive Renaissance
Library certification, librarians
must document mat their prac-
tices encourage student access
to a wide variety of books as well
as supporting reading practice
and self-directed learning. In
addition, the librarian must be
actively working with individual
students to meet Renaissance
recommended standards for
reading achievement.

GLADES COUNTY The third
annual bridge walk coordinated by
Glades County Health Promotion
Coordinator, Angelica Pefia was a
success with participation from
approximately 100 residents who
Stepped Up and got active. Moore
Haven Elementary School, Agape
Christian Academy, RCMA, and
Glades County Health Department
joined in and took advantage of
one of the many opportunities
Glades County has to offer: walk-
ing over the bridge.
Safe and Smart students from
Moore Haven Elementary and
Moore Haven Middle School led the
walk accompanied by their teach-
ers and the principal of Moore
Haven Elementary, Mr. Brickel. Mrs.
Tillery also joined with a group of
her students as well as the cafeteria
personnel. Staff from the Health
Department met the very enthusi-
astic students, teachers and princi-
pal and began the walk approxi-
mately at 3 p.m. Mrs. Ridge,
Director of RCMA walked with sev-
eral of her staff. Along the way the
group was joined by Agape Christ-
ian Academy students, teachers,
Director, and parents and their chil-
dren. The walk was approximately
2.5 miles which took about one
hour and a half to complete from
the elementary school, over the
bridge, under the bridge, and return
on the opposite side. Officers from
the Glades County Sheriff's Depart-
ment waited for the walkers and
ensured we crossed Hwy. 27 safely.
Thank you. Another thank you to B
& B, they graciously donated water
for our walkers.
Glades County is participating in
the statewide initiative to promote
physical activity and to incorporate
healthier foods into our daily diets.
The state and the nation is facing
an epidemic of chronic diseases
including overweight and obesity,
diabetes, heart attack and stroke,
and smoking related illnesses,
Glades County ranks at the top of
the charts when it comes to chron-
ic diseases such as overweight and
obesity, and lack of physical activity
and lack of proper nutrition.
According to the 2002 County
Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance
System (BRFSS) Survey (a systems
that monitors priority health risk
factors, general health status, and
the prevalence of overweight), in
Glades County 24.5 percent of
adults do not engage in leisure time
physical activity compared to the
State's 26.4 percent. Overweight
was at 28.7.3 percent compared to
the State's 35.1 percent, and obesi-
ty at 35.3 percent compared to the
state's 22.3 percent. Glades County
also reported that 75.1 percent of
adults consume less than 5 fruits
and vegetables a day compared to
the State's 74.3 percent. We can
make a difference in our health by
increasing physical activity and

Leadership program continues successful inaugural season


By Janice Groves

HENDRY/GLADES COUNTY
- Another successful session
has been put to rest as the Lead-
ership Hendy and Glades Coun-
ties' "Pioneer" Class' inaugural
season met its halfway mark
Wednesday, Feb. 21.
The twenty participants
began their Health and Educa-
tion Day at the Port LaBelle Inn
for breakfast, sponsored by Sea-
coast National Bank and Lang-
ford Ford. The class members
then were introduced to a panel
of educators in both Hendry and
Glades counties. Barbara Saun-


ders, Executive Director of South-
west Florida, Early Learning
Coalition; Lucinda Kelley, Dean
of Education at the LaBelle Cam-
pus of Edison College; Tom Con-
nor, Superintendent of Hendry
County Schools,; Scott Bass,
Glades County Schools; and Nor-
man "Sonny" Hughes, Executive
Director of the Education Center
of Southwest Florida provided an
informative and in-depth picture
of opportunities and challenges
facing the Hendry and Glades
counties education systems.
A tour of the Edison campus
in LaBelle, hosted by Lucinda
Kelley and the LaBelle High
School campus, hosted by Jen-


nifer Milligan and Aaron Dyes,
both students at LaBelle High
School, and Daniel Gilbertson,
LaBelle High School Principal
filled the rest of the morning. A
cafeteria lunch at the high school
was enjoyed by the class before
they headed to Moore Haven to
visit the Glades County School
Board. Mr. Scott Bass gave a tour
of the executive offices and
School Board Member, Janet
Story, provided the joys, rewards
and challenges of being a school
board member.
Being Health and Education
Day, the group switched to the
health portion of the day for the
afternoon. A short tour and infor-


mation presentation of the
Glades County Health Depart-
ment preceded a trip to the
Hendry County Regional Medical
Center where a tour of the 56
year old facility was hosted by
Sue Sealey.
The group wrapped up the
day by listening to a panel of rep-
resentatives from the Hendry
County Health Department
including: Pat Dobbins Executive
Nursing Director; Lynn Thomas,
Business Manager; Judy
Paskvan, Program Director for
Healthy Families; and Keith Legg,
Environmental Health. Joe
Hosick, Executive Director
Hendry Glades Mental Health;


Dr. James Forbes, M.D., and
Craig Cudworth, Hospital
Administrator were panelists dis-
cussing hospital and medical
services.
Ms. Glenda Wilson, Director
of the Hendry County Regional
Medical Center Foundation, and
Neftali Fernandez, MD, both
members of the "Pioneer" Class
for the Leadership Hendry and
Glades Counties, provided their
expertise in helping coordinate
the panelists and their sessions.
Both counties are becoming
actively involved as this program
progresses with experts in their
disciplines providing information
to enhance the subject of the day.


The leadership program will con-
tinue in March with a Growth
Management Day, April for Water
and Environmental Issues Day,
and May for a Civic and Cultural
Day. A Graduation and Recogni-
tion event will take place in June.
Facilitators and participants will
be recognized for their contribu-
tion to make this inaugural year a
success. Plans are already being
made for next year. If you are
interested in participating, spon-
soring or facilitating a portion of
the Leadership Hendry & Glades
Counties program, contact Jan-
ice Groves at (863)-675-6007 for
more information.


Deputy hunch


leads to drug busts


GLADES COUNTY On Tues-
day, Feb. 20, a Glades County
Sheriff's Deputy was conducting
routine security checks within the
Port LaBelle area. During the
security checks, the deputy
noticed a strong odor of marijua-
na from within a specific resi-
dence.
The deputy contacted the
Criminal Investigation Division,
and relayed his findings. The
Criminal Investigations Division
began their investigation which
led to obtaining a search warrant
for the residence located on
Warm Court. The search warrant
led investigators to find 9 grown
marijuana plants and approxi-
mately 50 pounds of processed
marijuana.
Also inside the residence,
investigators arrested two sus-


pects, Mercedes Alpiza Cabrera,
38 and Gilberto Hernandez
Lopez, 36. Both were taken into
custody and charged with cultiva-
tion of marijuana and trafficking
of marijuana.
While detectives were at work
on the first suspected "grow
house," they located a second
possible suspect residence.
With a search warrant, detec-
tives searched the second home
in the same area on Saturn Circle
and found 65 marijuana plants
growing inside the home. Detec-
tives arrested Osualdo Jorge, 45
and he also was taken into cus-
tody and charged with cultivation
of marijuana and possession of
marijuana.
All three suspects were trans-
ported to the Glades County Jail.

By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
W3ALE, PIO-BLARC
CLEWISTON Effective Feb.
23, changes were made in the
Federal Communications Com-
mission regulations that affected
radio amateurs. For the first time
since the inception of radio licens-
ing, Morse code requirements
have been dropped. This means
that persons seeking to be
licensed as radio amateurs will no
longer have to take tests to
demonstrate their ability to oper-
ate in code. For some years now,
there has been a discontinuation
of code use by the military and
the commercial radio communi-
ty. Today, a more innovative
means of using "code" has come
into place by the coupling of digi-
tal technology and radio broad-
casting and the former means of
communication by Morse code is
not as nearly widespread as it
once was.
The Federal radio spectrum
still maintains frequencies
restricted for the use of code
transmissions, although a second
change also was instituted on the
23rd of February, expanding the
portions of the amateur radio
spectrum that permits use of
voice transmissions.
In the past, some persons


interested in amateur radio as a
hobby and as a means of serving
their communities in times of dis-
asters felt restricted by code
requirements; feeling that they
could not sufficiently master this
language to pass the required
tests. With the elimination of the
code requirement, it is now possi-
ble to obtain any of the various
classes of amateur licenses by
passing the written question-and-
answer tests that are provided.
The Clewiston area, as well as the
other areas around Lake Okee-
chobee, has sufficient numbers of
volunteer examiners to provide
for licensure tests to those who
are interested in becoming radio
amateurs, as well as providing
resources or referrals to classes,
materials and means of self-study
to prepare for the exams.
Interested persons can contact
the Big Lake Amateur Radio Club

To meet a growing demand for electricity and provide a diverse fuel mix
ensuring a reliable supply of electricity, Florida Power & Light is proposing
to build an advanced technology coal plant. The proposed plant will also
meet a demand for strict environmental and public health protection.

Florida Power & Light studied coal-fired power plants around the world
and selected the best-proven technology for the proposed FPL Glades Power
Park. This plant design will be the
most advanced coal generation tech-
nology ever developed in the United
States and is raising the bar for the
industry. This new generation of coal-
fired power plants offers a modern,
Sc environmentally safe and efficient
approach to producing electricity.

The extraordinary controls on mercury
n emissions planned for the FPL Glades
Power Park are an example of the care
and commitment to protecting public
-health and the environment.

Strict mercury emission limits for power plants were adopted in the
Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Air Mercury Rule of 2005.
The FPL Glades Power Park will not only meet the EPA's new, strict limit
but will be 50 percent below that limit for mercury emissions.

Mercury does not pose a health risk in the air we breathe; rather, it becomes
a concern when it builds up in the food chain. When mercury from the air
gets into water bodies, it can be converted to a form called methylmercury
and accumulate in fish. Because of its very low emissions, the FPL Glades
Power Park will not contribute to health concerns from
methylmercury in the region. Area residents can continue to
enjoy fish caught locally in the same quantities they do now.


Advanced Mercury Controls Planned for the

FPL Glades Power Park

To achieve this level of protection, the most modern, proven pollution
control technologies will be brought to Glades County with the construc-
tion of the FPL Glades Power Park.

Overall, emissions of mercury in the United States from man-made sources
already have fallen by more than 45 percent since passage of the earlier
Clean Air Act amendments in 1990. With the stricter Mercury Rule of
2005, this trend of Mercury reductions is expected to continue. FPL Glades
Power Park's modern technology helps to continue that trend.

Mercury is a naturally occurring element in rocks and soil and also can
be found in fuels such as coal and oil. The amount of mercury in coal is
typically similar to the amount that is already found in Florida soils. FPL
will use an extensive array of proven emissions-control equipment that
enhances the removal of mercury at each step of the process so the amount
of mercury in the local environment from the power plant will be indistin-
guishable from what already exists naturally and from other sources.

As part of FPL's continuing focus on public health and environmental
protection, we will monitor air emissions from the FPL Glades Power Park
24 hours a day to ensure the protection of both the environment and the
health of people and wildlife in the region.

FPL is committed to a long-term partnership with the communities where
our facilities are located. The Glades region will be no exception. We want
community involvement throughout the planning stages of this project. If
you have additional questions about the pollution-control technologies,
please call us at (888) 256-2206.

Chalo Nitka fun



this weekend


Festival celebrates
65th anniversary

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Glades County Democrat
For 65 years, the Chalo Nitka fes-
tival has entertained residents and
other visitors, bringing together
some of the best that Glades Coun-
ty has to offer.
To the crowds of people who
attend the annual event at the
Chalo Nitka ground in Moore
Haven, there never seems to be a
shortage of things to see, people to
meet and games to play. According
to festival organizers, this year
should be no different.
While a Chalo Nitka queen was
crowned last week, the real fun is
only set to start.
The festival kicks off this week-
end on Friday, Kid's Day. A small fry
fishing contest, with registration at
8 a.m. and fishing at 9:30 a.m. is the
perfect kick off for the festival, with
young fishermen trying for the
biggest fish in the water.
A hula hoop contest, dance con-
test and the return of the mechani-
cal bull promises to keep kids, and
the parents accompanying them,
happy until well into the day.
Adults who may have been
gotten their fill of adolescent fun
on Friday are still strongly encour-
aged to bring their families on Sat-
urday, when a parade down the
Caloosahatchee ending by the fes-
tival grounds officially begins the
festival at 10 a.m.
Several familiar faces from the
city council and county board are
set to participate in the parade, and
notables like Denise Grimsley and
Tim Mahoney have already said
they will be on-hand to celebrate
with Glades County residents.


Oppose

The slogans on the signs argued
against the construction of a coal
fired power plant in a wetlands
area that is the northern region of
the Everglades. It is also adjacent to
Lake Okeechobee.
SING and other environmental
groups believe that burning coal is
the dirtiest method of energy pro-
duction.
The mining process of coal can
be dangerous to coal industry
workers and nearby communities,
they said. The dust produced is
considered to be noxious and the
origin of diseases.
The process to remove coal
from the ground is called mountain
top removal and is done in the
Appalachian Mountains. .Entire
mountains are leveled to the
ground, sometimes producing a
pit. Some people view this as a trag-
ic eyesore.
Carbon dioxide (C02) emis-
sions typify power plant sites that
burn coal, and it is widely known
that C02 is one of the main pollu-
tants that generate global warming.
This viewpoint has also recently
been acknowledged by the Bush
administration.
Mercury contamination is a
health-damaging element that has
worried many people who are con-
cerned about the pollutant. Ele-

and that IGCC plants as of yet have
not met 89 percent of the power
they were designed to have, and
that IGCC's do not capture all the
C02 emissions.
Even when the C02 is captured,
there is no place to store it, he said.
C02 has been blamed as the main
pollutant generator of global
warming.
Steve Jenkins further explained
that USCPC plants like the one pro-
posed for Glades County are cur-
rently an efficient choice in Europe
and Japan. He spoke about all of
the coal powered plants in the
United States and said, "FPL Glades
Power Park will be the most effi-
cient."
Air emissions speaker, Ken
Kosky of Gainesville, spoke about
air quality and emission controls.
He referred to his slide presenta-
tion of Glades Power Park emis-
sions which stated it "will be less
than half of EPAstandards."
Hal Frediani, of Atlanta, was the
water use expert who spoke about
using the Upper Floridan Aquifer
during times of drought when
water from the C-19 canal and the
C-43 canal will not be available. He
also addressed the use of an injec-
tion well for the disposal of waste
water. The waste water will be
injected 3,000 feet down into the
boulder zone which contains, he
said, "very poor water indeed" and
"injection well water does not tend
to rise back up."
Automobile traffic speaker Bill
Oliver, of Tampa, mentioned that
there will be approximately 1,488


At the festival location, familiar
attractions like carnival rides will be
available.
Most people aren't afraid to say
one of the biggest reasons for
attending the event is the food.
With quality cooking from the
nearby Seminole Tribe and other
vendors who never fail to show at
the event, residents may want to
leave their diets at home.
Even festival organizers can't
resist the temptation.
"Oh, my God, it's wonderful,"
said Lisa Langdale. "The Pumpkin
bread is out of this world."
For the first year, the festival
committee was able to put
together a real treat for visitors,
and has secured live entertain-
ment for the event. Nashville
artists are the featured entertain-
ment for this year's festival.
Exile will be performing at
Chalo Nitka. The group, known
for songs like, "I Want to Kiss You
All Over," and others will be shar-
ing the stage with upcoming tal-
ent Kristi Morris and the Ken-
tucky Hearts and James Billie
and his band.
The festival usually doesn't end
until well in the afternoon.
The festival averages good
attendance, with anywhere from
4,000 and 4,500 people attending
each year. Buzz surrounding the
musical acts seems to ensure that
the same number, if not more, will
participate in this year's festival.
"We have a lot to offer," said
Lisa. "There is no, alcohol at our
event, we just offer good, clean
fun."
The event is being sponsored
by the Seminole Tribe, FPL and
U.S. Sugar.

through naturally occurring water
bacteria which converts it into
methyl mercury. Then it accumu-
lates in the tissue of some fish.
Christopher M. Teaf of. Haz-
ardous Substance & Waste Man-
agement Research, Inc. the toxicol-
ogy expert who spoke at the
special meeting mentioned that
mercury emissions were under
intense scrutiny and that elemental
mercury does not easily convert to

report on the detailed subject was
quite brief compared to the other

Council (NRDC), a national organi-
zation, and the Southern Alliance

sat in the audience. She comment-
ed that the speakers at the meeting
should instead be a panel of inde-
pendent experts.
"It is important for the citizens of
Glades County to know that the

man.

struction at the intersection of the
plant entrance and S.R. 78. Work
shifts will be staggered in order to
lessen congestion. He also suggest-
ed car pooling, extra turn lanes, a
traffic light, or one policeman to
direct traffic.
Philip Burris of Virginia was the
expert on rail traffic. He said the
coal trains could be up to 1.3 miles
long. The wait at a crossing for a
coal train will take 4.3 minutes if
the train travels 20 miles per hour;
or 2.3 minutes if the train travels 40
miles per hour.
Transmission lines were dis-
cussed by Martha O. McNeal of
West Palm Beach. She said that
there will be very little impact to
birds and other wildlife, and that
very little land use is lost at the base
of the 125 foot high towers. Her
slide presentation photos showed
that crops, groves, cattle and agri-
culture buildings can use the land
right beneath the towers. Ms.
McNeal said, "housing develop-


ments can be built adjacent to the
right of way."
Karl A. Bullock of Gainesville
was the ecological impact expert.
He mentioned that the site of the
plant is mostly sugar cane and
brazilian pepper marshes. FPL's
site will avoid significant natural
areas, and will create additional
wetlands.
Toxicology impact speaker,
Christopher M. Teaf of Tallahassee,
said that mercury is a natural com-
ponent of coal, and that this type of
mercury does not easily convert to
methyl mercury. He referred to a
2005 study which claimed that
there is a decline in mercury found
in women and children.
The economic impact was dis-
cussed by Henry Fishkind of Orlan-
do. He noted that 180 new jobs will
be directly related to the operation
of the power plant when it is up
and running, and that an additional
254 new jobs will be indirectly
related to Glades Power Park.
Mr. Fishkind referred to an

thing she was not sure she was get-
ting at the meeting.
Susan Etchey, another member
of the SING group and a Glades
County resident, said she is con-
cerned about Glades County. She
has attended many county and
regional meetings about the power
plant.
"The Glades County public
meeting was no more than just
another, albeit much longer, FP&L
presentation in disguise," Ms.
Etchey said.
But not everyone at the meeting
was dissatisfied with the presenta-
tions.
Pete Quasius, of Collier County
Audubon, is diplomatic about
assessing the information that
comes from both sides of the coal
issue.
He talked'.about technology
selection expert Steve Jenkins of
whom he was favorably
impressed.
"He has no ax to grind on either
of the coal technologies and laid to
rest many of the myths about inte-
grated gasification combine cycle
(IGCC)," said Mr. Quasius.
Mr. Quasius mentioned the neg-
ative side, too. The ability for a coal
fired power plant to capture nearly
all emitted pollutants could be
eight to ten years away, he said.
"And it is still coal and it signifi-
cantly contributes to climate
change," he said.

Preparation and prevention; two parts of getting ready


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We are into the season of Lent
in the calendars used by many
churches.
This is a time of getting ready for
Easter, really and it has a long and
traditional history. When we
expect to have special visitors, we
clean house, buy special things to
eat, tell friends about who is com-
ing over and make a hospitable
place for our planned guests.
That's what Lent is about too; get-
ting ready for a renewed visit by a
Resurrected Lord at Easter.
Zechariah speaks of his son John,
whose ministry was to "go on
before the Lord to prepare the way
for Him (Luke 1:76)." The Old Tes-
tament tells us about preparing for
the coming of the Lord and the
New Testament tells us to prepare
for His coming again. I reflected on
times I have gotten ready for some-


thing; about ministries and how
my past experiences helped me
with them, about friendships I
share and looking forward to time I
spend with people who are special
to me, about; i,.
looking ahead
at the changes
that I can fore- .
see and at what *
I am doing to
make transi-
tions to a new L
direction in my
life. There is
also another Samuel S.
part of pre- Thomas
paredness that Ih as
consider: prevention. Sometime
ago, when I toured the Mercedes-
Benz plant and museum in
Stuttgart, Germany, we were intro-
duced to all of the engineering and
technological advances that were
made. Then the engineers said that
they were not satisfied with build-
ing what they thought was the


best; they wanted to do something
more and devoted their research to
safety. They moved from designing
cars only to transport, to designing
cars that would prevent injury or
death in case of an accident. The
cars were designed to prepare for
something that might never come,
but would prevent bad things from
happening if it did. Today, our cars
are "prepared" for the future with
air bags and restraints; to "prevent"
what might happen even if we
don't think much about them each
time we get in. Accident prevention
is also preparation.
We are likewise encouraged to
do "preventive maintenance;"
service today to keep things going
in the future. Likewise, medicine
works to heal people and discover
cures for what ails us; but there is
also that growing concern for pre-
ventive medicine. That's equally
important; the other side of the
coin in keeping us from needing
healing in the first place. We pre-


pare for the future by preventing
global warming today with all of its
consequences. Spiritually, our
habits of worship, our moments of
devotion, or prayers that we say
regularly, our doing good- are pre-
ventive too. They give us the
inward direction that carries us
when crises occur or when tragedy
strikes. My habits of prayer go
before me when I am called upon,
sometimes very suddenly, to offer a
blessing or to pray with someone
who is suffering or has had a seri-
ous setback. I was reading an old
English prayer the other day and
the word "prevent" was used. In
the older version, it made more
sense if it was translated as "going
before." In fact, "prevent" is related
to the root meanings of "pre"
meaning something before, and
"venir" in Latin, French or Spanish
which means "to come." "Pre-
vent" literally meant what to do
before coming into something.
Today, prevention is what we do


before we get into a predicament
or situation. Spiritually, it is getting
ready for what is to come. In this
time of getting ready for Easter,
April 8th-a little more than a month
away, it would be a good time to
think about the spiritual "preven-
tive maintenance" we could do in
the old sense of the word. What we


do today matters tomorrow, and
what foundations we have laid
now will support our life to come.
Lent is one of those times tradition-
ally set aside by many faithful to
remind us of or spiritual "preven-
tive maintenance" and to get ready
for the life to come at Easter and
finally at the close of this age.


Tubas on picnic tables and other learned truths


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
There are certain truths that
we can relate to. A friend shared
with me that when using a public
campground, a tuba placed on
your picnic table will keep the
campsites on either side,vacant,
and that the guitar of the noisy
teenager at the next campsite
makes excellent kindling. I can
only imagine how he ascertained
that knowledge!
We find spoken and written
truths and messages all around
us. Sometimes they make us
smile; sometimes they inspire us.
Sometimes they just invite us to
pause and think.
Take some of the messages we


find on church signs for instance.
Here are some favorites that I dug
up from my files.
(1) "Those who throw dirt lose
ground." (2) "It wasn't the apple
on the tree, it
was the pair
beneath." (3)
"Satan sub-
tracts and
divides. God
adds and mul-
tiplies." (4)
"Easter More
than some-
thing to dye John
for." (5) Hicks
"When down
in the mouth, remember Jonah.
He came out all right." (6) "Don't
let your worries get the best of
you; remember, Moses started


out as a basket case." (7) "Some
minds are like concrete thorough-
ly mixed up and permanently
set." (8) "We were called to be
witnesses, not lawyers or judges."
(9) "God doesn't call the quali-
fied, He qualifies the called." (10)
"The Will of God never takes you
to where the Grace of God will
not protect you." (11) "We don't
change the message, the message
changes us."
These messages touch our
hearts with a smile and elements
of great truths that we can relate
to and share. Recently, I ran
across another fascinating list that
was titled: "Great Truths About
Life That Little Children Have
Learned." Let me share a few of
these "great truths" with you.
(1) "No matter how hard you


try you cannot baptize a cat." (2)
"When your mom is mad at your
dad, don't let her brush your
hair." (3) "Never ask your three-
year-old brother to hold a toma-
to or an egg." (4) "You can't
trust dogs to watch your food for
you." (5) "Don't sneeze when
somebody is cutting your hair."
(6) "School lunches stick to the
wall." (7) "You can't hide a piece
of broccoli in a glass of milk."
(8) "Never wear polka-dot
underwear under white shorts...
no matter how cute the under-
wear is."
Now, it is most likely that the
children learned these "great
truths" and came to these bold
new insights after some dramat-

Mount Zion AME Church reaches out to children

Submitted photo
Members of the Mt. Zion Women's Missionary Society are: (left to right) Annie Mincey,
Albertha Bain, Ernestine Brown, Tracey Wilkerson, Helen Hymes, Pastor Hymes, Marian Gar-
ner, Sharon Brown, Maude Vereen; Rose Milner, Rovenia Allen, Janice Bain, Hattie Bain,
Elaine Bain and Sandra Stewart.


BELLE GLADE The Glady L.
Tucker Women's Missionary Soci-
ety along with the Eleventh Episco-
pal Missionary Society, reached out
to children whose fathers are incar-
cerated. The Mt. Zion WMS, under
the leadership of Pastor Hymes and
local president Maude L. Vereen,
accepted the challenge.
The group was initially sent
information on five families with 11
children, however, President
Vereen was contacted by four other
families with 18 more children.
President Vereen contacted
each caretaker and explained the
purpose for the call, to find out
each child's needs. Each one was
invited to share worship service
with the church. The members
decided to have a feast at the I,S,
and Etha Jones Multipurpose build-
ing immediately after the service.


It is possible to be right with God


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Yes, there are great problems in
our world, and many people are
hurting, but in a troubled world
amid church problems it is still
possible for a Christian to be right
with God and have that peace that
passes all understanding.
Yes, there is much evil in the
world, and many are succumb-
ing to its many temptations, but


in a corrupt and sinful world it is
still possible (with God's help)
for a Christian to be holy and to
keep himself/herself unspotted
from the world.
In a world that is full of drugs,
alcoholism and immoral sex, it is
still possible for a Christian to con-
trol his/her bodily appetites.
In a world of sex-before-mar-
riage, living together without being
married, abortions to get rid of
unwanted and unborn children,


and many divorces, it is still possi-
ble for a young couple to have an
honorable courtship, to marry for
life, to have a good home and to
rear good children.
In a world full of excitement
and 24-hour entertainment it is still
possible to work with people and
lead some to Christ.
In a situation where some
people backslide and others are
inconsistent in their Christian
profession, it is still possible to be


a faithful Christian who will be
faithful to death.
In a world full of religious divi-
sion, denominationalism, confu-
sion and sectarianism, it is still
possible to be just simply a Chris-
tian and belong to Christ's body
"The Church".
Now aren't you glad IT IS POS-
SIBLE? And since it is possible,
don't you want to be one of those
who can achieve that which is pos-
sible with the Lord's help?


Truths that experience that this is just in the Scriptures. From Genesis available to us today through the
Truths not a good thing to do. The point to Revelation, the Bible is full of presence of Holy Spirit upon us?
is clear: A dramatic personal mighty miracles, amazing signs, This is a great truth that Jesus
Continued From Page 14 eye-opening experience can give and supernatural wonders promised us and that is ours to
ic eye-opening experience in us new insight, new perception, which God performed through claim. If we are not walking in
their own personal lives. Can't newvision. His people. These are eye-open- the miraculous, we are living far
you just see in your mind's eye, On a much deeper level and ing experiences as we read below our birthright! Remem-
some children trying to baptize a on a much more positive level, them, but are you aware this ber, the task ahead of us is never
cat, and leaning full well from that's precisely what we discover same supernatural power is as great as the Power behind us!

Curio Coffee Table
Here's a good project for do-it-yourselfers looking to
build a handsome coffee table as well as a safe place
to store and display prized collectibles.
Built primarily from oak and oak plywood (other
woods can be substituted), this curio coffee table is
topped with a piece of heavy glass. The table's top
drawer provides almost four square feet of display
space and can be lined with felt to protect its contents
from scratches.
The curio table measures 38 inches long by 24
inches deep by 17 inches tall. The plan includes
step-by-step directions with 12 photos, isometric
drawings, a shopping list and a cutting schedule.

Curio Coffee Table plan (No. 854)... $9.95
Curio Furniture Package (No. C116)
Three projects incl. 854... $22.95
Catalog (pictures hundreds of projects) ... $2.00
