Man sentenced on porn charges


Tyler sentenced to
50 years in prison

By Eric Kopp
INI Florida
FORT MYERS A former
Lakeport man was sentenced to
50 years in federal prison Monday
following his guilty plea on various
child pornography charges.
Michael James Tyler, 35, is cur-
rently being held in federal custody
and is awaiting his assignment to a


federal penitentiary. Assistant U.S.
Attorney Yolande Viacava, who
prosecuted the case, said Tuesday
she was not sure when that assign-
ment would be made.
Once Tyler has served his
prison sentence he will be under
supervised release for the rest of
his life.
Tyler entered his guilty plea on
Oct. 2, and was adjudicated guilty
on Oct. 10. He was sentenced
March 5, for transporting material
involving the sexual exploitation of
minors, permitting or assisting by


a parent or legal guardian in the
sexual exploitation of a minor, and
using a minor to engage in sexual-
ly explicit conduct for the purpose
of producing a visual depiction of
such conduct.
Tyler was originally arrested at
his Lakeport home in April of 2006
by investigators from the Glades
County Sheriff's Office (GCSO). At
that time he was charged with 157
counts of possession of photo-
graphs of the sexual performance
of a child, six counts of transmis-
sion of child pornography, two


counts of distributing obscene
material and one count of obscene
communication via the computer.
Following Tyler's original
arrest, GCSO Captain Daryl Lewis
said Tyler had taken photos of him-
self having sex with young boys.
These photos, he added, were
retrieved from the hard drive of
Tyler's computer by the U.S. Secret
Service.
SCapt. Lewis went on to say all
of the incidents took place in
Tyler's home in Lakeport, and that
all of the boys were between the


ages of 14 and 17.
More discs and CDs were
found on April 23, 2006, and
another of Tyler's computers was
retrieved from a canal. Also found
in that canal was a video camera
and video tape.
These items had been in the
canal for about two weeks, said
Capt. Lewis of the find.
Since Tyler had only lived in
Lakeport for a little over a year,
authorities were, at that time,

Hospital asks



for support



from county


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY Miller
Couse, Hendry Regional Med-
ical Center Foundation mem-
ber, was present at the Feb. 26
Glades County Board of County
Commissioners meeting to
inform the commission of past
service to Glades County and
the need for funds for new proj-
ects.
He announced plans to
build an urgent care facility.
Mr. Couse is a member of
the recently created Hendry
Regional Medical Center Foun-
dation. He reported on the
services provided to residents
of Glades County, the new


plans for Clewiston and
LaBelle, and the need for a
monetary pledge.
Mr. Couse commented on
the reasons for creating a foun-
dation for the hospital.
"For many years we have
struggled and struggled to keep
our noses above water," said
Mr. Couse. "We have realized
that we desperately need to
turn some dirt and make some
new things happen."
HRMC Foundation's board
consists of 18 members from
LaBelle and Clewiston. They
raise charitable funds as a non
profit organization which sup-
ports the hospital. The founda-

Ribs was stewed in a huge pot.
If you stopped by his booth in
the morning you could see a
pick up truck loaded with
swamp cabbage boots which
require a lot of energy to har-
vest.
Swamp cabbage is also fried
in fritters and this is a specialty
of Cassie Moncrief whose family
runs Cracker Cookin' &
Caterin'. Her booth also had


fried turkey breast and home
preserved guava jelly.
The Muse Volunteer Fire
Department booth was operat-
ed by ladies who know desserts.
It was a risk to walk by their
booth because there was no
way you could pull yourself
away. Home made pies, cakes,

County lobbyist
reports tough
year ahead

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY The
Glades County Board of County
Commissioners met Monday,
Feb. 26 to discuss funding of
local projects and to hear a
report from the county lobbyist
about funding issues at the
state capital.
Dale Melita of Craig A. Smith
& Associates, reported on his
work in Tallahassee. Mr. Melita


spoke frankly to the county
commission and said, "The
Florida house of representa-
tives has been talking it up pret-
ty heavily that they don't want
to approve any projects, noth-
ing."
Apparently there is a short-
fall in state revenue due to less
sales tax money. He reminded
everyone that small counties
really get the least- of Florida
revenue.
Mr. Melita commented that
he was at a forum recently and
heard that rural areas have only
4 to 10 percent of the entire

MOORE HAVEN The
Chalo Nitka Festival in Glades
County is proof that this com-
munity on the southwestern
edge of Lake Okeechobee is a
multi-cultural area.
People from all walks of life
work and play here; and they all
agree that delicious food is glori-
ous. Chalo Nitka is a celebration
of food and it brings people
together.
The True Tabernacle of God
is a local church that sets up a
food booth every year. Their
specialties include ribs, chicken
and fried catfish. They have at
least ten to twelve volunteers
constantly preparing and cook-
ing food. You can tell it is a labor
of love if you witness the dedica-
tion they put into it.
Be prepared to stand in a line
before you place your order, but
don't let that make you hesitate.
Read their tantalizing menu sev-
eral times while you wait and it
won't seem to take long at all.
Did you try the collard greens
at Sam's food booth? They were
slow cooked to perfection with
just the right amount of heated
seasoning to wake up your
mouth.

Long, hard work
with animals and
FCAT too

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Feb. 26
through Feb. 29 was the annual
livestock show in Glades County
at the Moore Haven rodeo
grounds.
Elementary and secondary
students were involved with 4H
and FFA projects that have taken
many months of preparations.
Livestock must be acquired;
then it must be fed and watered
everyday. Steers and hogs have to
be washed, groomed, trained,
exercised, cleaned up after, vacci-
nated and transported regularly,
too.
Many of the high school partic-


ipants have been doing this since
they were small children; and
their parents, -grandparents or
teachers might have done it
before them.
Generally this family pastime
turns out to be a real job, and can
prepare a young person for the
rigors of earning a living every
day. Once they have committed
themselves to raising a farm ani-
mal they must stick with it up to
eight to ten months.
Mr. Crosby, agriculture teacher
and FFA sponsor, was in a great
hurry the week of the show. Not
only did he teach week and work
with his students at the show, but
he also administered the FCAT
standardized test to his classes.
Young people in 4H and FFA
had to take the FCAT test while
preparing for the show.

Letters to the Editor


Too much done
in the shadows
Dear Editor:
The permitting process and
activities behind FP&L's proposed
coal fired Glades Power Park
needs to see the light of day and
involve the citizens of Glades and
Hendry counties. Too much has
been done in the shadows. We
need to ask some pointed ques-
tions of the Glades Co. Board of
Commissioners and not simply
request, but demand answers.
We omit Donna Storter from any
implication since she did not join
the Glades Board until after plans
for the power plant were under-
way. So, here you are Mrs. Jones,
Beck, Echols and Giesler:
Why did you and the local
planning agency amend the land
development regulation to grant
the permitted use of a power
plant on land designated agricul-
tural? Why did you do this with no
public hearing?
Why were FP&L's represen-
tatives allowed to meet secretly
and privately with individual
board members while all this was
going on? Did any of you remotely
consider that your actions on a
matter of this magnitude might
take on the appearance of impro-
priety?
We were in attendance at
the informational board meeting
in Moore Haven on the 20th. This
was hardly an unbiased presenta-
tion. The experts on air emis-
sions, water use and ecological
impact are all employed by Gold-
er Associates, the company that is
facilitating FP&L's permitting
process. The toxicologist is under


contract with FP&L. The presen-
ter who praised the technological
virtues of the coal plant also made
the same pitch to the St. Lucie Co.
commissioners last year. They
didn't buy it and unanimously
turned down FP&L's request. Do
you ever wonder why? Did you
ever ask? You did not. Mr. Jones'
terse reply to their letter to you
urging caution in this matter sug-
gested they mind their own busi-
ness. Even Henry Fishkind's eco-
nomic analysis raised more
questions than it answered. But
then questions had to be pre-sub-
mitted and further questions on
sometimes ambiguous answers
were not permitted.
In short, gentlemen, we feel
that you are, for whatever reason,
prematurely rushing to bring this
potentially hazardous coal plant
to Glades County. It's time to step
back, be prudent and convene a
panel of knowledgeable people
to carefully analyze this with all
the impartiality that good science
has to offer. It is important that
they not be in the employ of or
obliged to FP&L in any way.
You're taking FP&L's "word for it"
would be akin to chickens con-
sulting only with the fox concern-
ing henhouse security and forgo-
ing a second opinion.
The ecological, health and
economic impact to our counties
and to the Everglades will be huge
and, we are willing to bet, nega-
tive. Consideration of an under-
taking of this magnitude deserves
and requires your caution and
informed objectivity. Your con-
stituencies deserve no less.
Sincerely, Bruce & Michelle
Steinfeldt
Ortona


Positive behavior
recognized
Dear Editor:
Moore Haven Junior-Senior
High School participates in the
Positive Behavior Support (PBS)
Project through the University of
South Florida. The purpose of
this project is to establish expect-
ed behaviors, teach students what
those expectations are, and
reward students for following
them. As part of this project, we
recognize students who "do the
right thing" or go "above and
beyond". Students are nominated
for these recognition by staff
members.
I would like to thank Ahern's
BP Shop for donating gift certifi-
cates for a free large Parrot Ice
drink for use with this program.
Each student that is recognized
for doing the right thing or going
above and beyond receives one of
these certificates. The PBS team
appreciates the support of this
local business for our project.
Sincerely,
Jean Prowant
Principal, Moore Haven Jr-Sr.
High School
Many are "Pro-power"
Dear Editor:
A news story on Feb. 21,
missed one major point regarding
a recent meeting for the FPL
Glades Power Park.
The article I am referring to
was about the Feb. 20, public
information meeting in Moore
Haven. More than 300 people
were in attendance. Of those 300,
the grand majority were support-
ers of the project, which is the


major point you failed to capture.
In fact, the supporters easily out-
numbered the opponents of the
project 2 to 1.
The people of this region are
smart people, and we recognize
real economic opportunity when
we see it. But please remember,
the environmental debate is not
lost on us. We, as a community,
would not support the FPL Glades
Power Park if we had any real rea-
son to believe it would harm us,
our children or our environment.
We recognize that technology
gets better and better every day,
including technology for coal-
fired power plants. This will not
be an old-fashioned coal plant, as
some people would have you
believe.
The Feb. 20, meeting was full
of people who wanted to further
educate themselves and provide
support to FPL. We welcome this
project because it will bring jobs.
We welcome this project because
it Will bring tax dollars. We also
support this project because it
will bring clean reliable energy to
the State of Florida and help
reduce our dependence on for-
eign sources that do not have our
best interests at heart.
I realize it's very easy to give
your attention to 15 sign-waving
protesters. But please remember
this project has significant sup-
port from our local communities
for the right reasons.
With regards,
David Dannenhauer
Glades County resident
Small business owner
Chairman, Glades County Eco-
nomic Development Council

Lock inspection to interrupt


boat traffic near Clewiston


FORT MYERS The South
Florida Water Management District
(SFWMD) reports that the S-310
navigation lock at Clewiston will
be taken out of service intermit-
tently between March 21 and 22,
for a routine safety inspection. The
inspection will require divers to be
in the water for up to two hours at
a time. To protect the divers, no
boat traffic can be allowed
through the navigation lock while


the divers are in the water.
Should any safety issues be
identified during the inspection,
it may become necessary to
close the S-310 navigation lock
completely while repairs are
made. Should this happen, the
SFWMD will notify boaters and
business owners dependent on
this navigation lock.
The S-310 structure, located
in the Herbert Hoover Dike in


Clewiston, allows boat passage
between Lake Okeechobee and
the Industrial Canal. Originally
constructed in 1933 as part of a
hurricane gate structure, S-310
was modified into a navigation
lock in 1981.
Questions from the public
regarding the lock closing should
be directed to the SFWMD Okee-
chobee Service Center at (863)
462-5260 or (800) 250-4200.

U.S. Sugar holds successful job fair for Bryant workers


CLEWISTON U.S. Sugar held
a two-day job fair at the Pahokee
Community Center last week for
workers impacted by the upcom-
ing closure of its Bryant Sugar Mill
following the conclusion of this
sugarcane harvesting and process-
ing season. State, county and local
businesses participated in the job
fair, representing several hundred
available positions in a diverse geo-
graphic area.
Although the Bryant Mill is
expected to run until mid-April, the
job fair was held to allow the facto-
ry's employees to get a head start
on finding new jobs. Nearly 70
employees attended the job fair.
According to Human Resources
Manager, Cathy Ruediger, "Bryant
employees bring a multitude of
marketable skills and job expertise
to area employers. In addition to
sugar specialists like mill operators,
sugar boilers, boiler operators,
power plant operators and techni-
cians, there are engineers,
mechanics, instrument mechanics,
machinists, electrician, welders,
heavy machine operators, truck
drivers, chemists, clerical and a
wide range of highly motivated
men and women with agricultural
and industrial experience."
U.S. Sugar hired 'Right Manage-
ment, the world's largest organiza-
tional consulting and outplace-
ment firm, to assist its Bryant
employees' transition to new jobs.
Right Management conducted a
five week career center in Pahokee
for interested workers that included
group workshops on resumes, job
applications, interview process and
skills, networking and marketing

giving local businesses the oppor-
tunity to find so many skilled indi-
viduals in one place," said Ashley
Tripp, of Tripp Electric Motors.
In addition to job postings, the
job fair also provided an opportuni-
ty for the Bryant employees to learn
about the services and training
available locally. Palm Beach Com-
munity College had a table with
information on different courses
and scholarships available. The
local Workforce Alliance explained
a variety of services available
including funding for dislocated
workers, job search help, career
change programs, networking
opportunities and job training in
computers, CDL (Commercial Dri-
ver's License), heavy equipment
operators, nursing and other fields.
Bryant employees who partici-
pated in the career center and job
fair were appreciative of the oppor-
tunities U.S. Sugar is providing to
help secure future employment.
One of the first to enter the job
fair was Sydney Slydell, a produc-
tion maintenance worker who
was born and raised in Pahokee.
He took advantage of the resume
building, interview skills and job
fair training offered by Right
Management.
"I am still a little nervous, but I
have some options now," said
Mr. Slydell. He was particularly
interested in the positions avail-
able at Stewart Mining. "Life goes
on," he said.
In November 2004, U.S. Sugar
announced plans to modernize,
consolidate and automate its sugar
processing facilities in Clewiston
and close its smaller Bryant Mill.


With state-of-the-art and highly
automated equipment, the 42,000
tons-per day facility is currently in
the final stages of construction, and
when completed, will be among
the largest in the world.
"In order to successfully com-
pete in a changing sugar market
with increased foreign sugar
imports as a result of NAFTA,
CAFTA and other trade agree-
ments, wve are automating our facil-
ities to lower our costs," said Bob
Buker, President and CEO.


"Unfortunately, one of the con-
sequences of increased global
trade, automation and new tech-
nology will be the loss several hun-
dred jobs in our sugar processing
operations," Mr. Buker said.
Scheduled to be in full opera-
tion in October, 2007, U.S. Sugar's
modernized sugar processing facil-
ity will be completely integrated
with its refining operations at the
Clewiston site. The Bryant Mill facil-
ity, built in 1962, is scheduled to
close in late spring of 2007.

FCAT no problem for exceptional student


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
To say that she is an exceptional
student is an understatement.
Eighth grader Larisa Rivera,
daughter of Marisa and Eliud
Rivera, is outstanding.
As a Glades County student,
Larisa attends West Glades School.
Although she does not use the
Spanish language in her school
work, she is bilingual.
When she was a Fifth grader,
Larisa made a level 4 grade on
math, on the FCAT test which,
according to school officials is con-
sidered avery good score.
Only a few students ever make
a level 4 and rarely a 5. When Lar-
isa was in the Sixth grade she made
a solid level 4.
"Last year when she took the
FCAT test she not only improved to
a 5 in math but she had a perfect
score," said Larry R. Luckey, II,
principal of West Glades School.
Every question in the math test was
answered correctly."
A level 3 would be a score of
1300 to 1700. There's always a sev-
eral hundred number spread. Only
teachers look to determine what
the spread is. Parents look only at
the numbers 1 through 5. Number

School.


3 is the state standard. Numbers 1
and 2 are below standard.
Larisa is one of three children in
her family. She regularly helps her
little sister with her lessons.
Mrs. Tina Wills was Larisa's
math teacher last year and she is
again this year.
"This is the first year that West
Glades has had Algebra One hon-
ors, that is, students who success-
fully complete Algebra One receive
a high school credit because this is
a high school class," said Ms.
Willis.
Last year's teacher "pushed"


the students academically, and as a
result an entire group was eligible
to take the high school course, offi-
cials said. So this year there's a
class of Eighth graders taking the
high school Algebra One honors
class with the same teacher, Mrs.
Wills.
Larisa Eliud, a soft spoken stu-
dent, says her favorite subject is
math but she really likes science
too, and she likes to read a lot.
As to other school activities, she
plays trumpet in the school band.
When asked how "good" she is at
playing the trumpet, she softly


said, "Well, I'm sort of good,
but I really want to play in the band
so I try real hard."
And then she adds, "I don't care
much for writing."
She helps her little sister with
home work and spends from two
to three hours herself every day, as
she has ever since she's been in
school, with her own homework.
Two times a week Larisa goes
into the kindergarten classroom to
help teach students with reading
skills.
It's one of her electives.
"Larisa is the most hard-work-
ing student I have ever taught," said
Mrs. Wills. "She always makes sure
she completely understands every
concept of math. And she comes in
two days a week to tutor other stu-
dents although she is not required
to do so. She is probably the most
well-rounded student I've ever had.
She's polite not only to teachers
but to all others as well and she is
respectful to everyone and excels
in every aspect of school life."
Mrs. Wills concludes, "I've had
many good students but I've never
had another student like her. She is
not only a good student, she is
always conscientious and kind. I
fully expect her to accomplish any-
thing she sets her mind to."


Senator Aronberg helps Teens to Tallahassee


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
As the youngest member of
the Florida Senate, State Senator
Dave Aronberg (D Greenacres)
is continuing his efforts to con-
vince young people to take an
active role in their government.
Senator Aronberg is working
closely with the Foundation for
Lee County Public Schools to
send local high school students
on an all expense paid trip to the
state capital to obtain a real-life


civics lessons.
These will be students not

only from Lee
County but
also some
Glades County
students will
be participat-
ing.
The Foun-
dation held a
fundraising
luncheon Feb. Dave
2 at the Pelican Aronberg
Preserve
Country Club in Fort Myers,


where local business and com-
munity leaders gathered together
to honor outstanding Southwest
Floridians for their dedication to
public service.
Glades County Manager Wen-
dell Taylor was among those hon-
ored that night, Jor his contribu-
tion to residentsIn the county.
All proceeds from the lunch-
eon went toward Senator Aron-
berg's annual "Teens Take Talla-
hassee" trip to the Capitol.
"This event gives students the
opportunity to see state govern-
ment in action," said Senator


Aronberg. "A trip to Tallahassee
will breath life into the photos
and words in their civics text-
books, and will prove that they
can shape Florida's destiny if
they're willing to be engaged."
This year's luncheon recog-
nized the public service accom-
plishments of three citizens in
Southwest Florida: Janet Eustis,
former CEO of Lee Mental
Health, Mr. Taylor and James
Fleming posthumously, former
East County Water Control Dis-
trict Supervisor and community
activist.


MHES congratulates Spelling Bee winners


Kellie Taylor Jo Platt


MOORE HAVEN "FEBRU-
ARY" Can you spell it back-
wards? That may be how some
of the students at Moore Haven
Elementary (MHE), West Glades
Elementary (WGE) and Moore
Haven Junior High (MHJH) felt
as they participated in the annu-
al spelling bee that was held on
Feb. 15.
"Being on the stage with par-
ents and teachers watching is
pretty intimidating, and some-
times your friends make it even
tougher", said Kellie Taylor. Kel-


lie was First Runner Up and Jo
Platt finished as the Overall
County Winner. Both students
are eighth graders this year at
MHJH and will travel over to
compete at the Palm Beach Post
Regional Spelling Bee, held in
West Palm in late March. A spe-
cial thank you goes out to Mrs.
Pat Ringstaff! Mrs. Ringstaff

Planning ahead for

U.S.27/S.R.78 intersection


Final plans for
safety fair health
department input

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The
community traffic safety team
met Thursday, March 1 and dis-
cussed the impending changes
for the intersection of U.S. 27
and S.R. 78.
As a result of the work, there
will be an increase in traffic
congestion due to the many
work sites and projects in the
area just north of the intersec-
tion.
The community traffic safe-
ty team is guided by the Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT). Representatives from
state government, local gov-
ernment, the sheriff's office
and the school district were
also in attendance. Angelica
Pena of the health department
was also at the meeting.
Since there are various proj-
ects in different stages of con-
struction and planning, namely
the: GEO prison, a correc-
tions/ICE facility, a construc-
tion/demolition landfill, the
probable growth of the indus-
trial park and the proposed
construction of a power plant,
the team argued that traffic
congestion is an issue the com-
munity will have for some
time. More than likely there will
be the need for a fully function-
al traffic light and more general
lighting at night.
Methods to facilitate the
light were discussed at the
meeting.
"The best way for a county
to light an intersection is to
have the power company erect
a vapor light. It's the cheapest,"
said Debra Stallings, FDOT
Coordinator.
Glades County Sheriff's
Office road patrol Captain, Jef-
ferson Hill, was present for the
traffic, safety meeting. He
reported that there were 301
traffic citations served in the
county in February and of
those, 231 were in the city of
Moore Haven. Most of them are
traffic violations, however two
were for DUI.
The health department's
chronic disease educator,
Angelica Pena, attended the
meeting to inform the team
and to ask for ideas. Her
department's main goal is to
promote physical activity and
nutrition because chronic dis-
eases are on the rise. Condi-
tions like heart disease, obesity,
diabetes and poor nutrition are
also affecting children and
young people.
Ms. Pena's program has
received offer of a grant for
increasing physical activity
such as walking or skating to
school instead of always riding
in a vehicle. The grant may
allow funds for infrastructure


and instruction. She men-
tioned Safe Routes to School a
program which is promoted by
federal and state government
that can assist communities to
enable and encourage children
and teens to walk and bike
safely to school.
Ms. Pena asked the CTST for
advice on how to get children
to walk safely to school and
what can be implemented in
Safe Routes to School (SRTS).
She specifically mentioned that
school students are not using
the designated crosswalk and
are dangerously walking across
U.S.27 after school.
The team informed her that
one of the main goals of the
upcoming Safety Fair is to edu-
cate children and teens about
the school crossing at Sixth
Street, and offered booth space
to her program.
FDOT coordinator, Debra.
Stallings advised Ms. Pena that
infrastructure like sidewalks
can cost as high as one half
million dollars for a mile or so.
Grant money may not cover
that much, but there were
other things that could be
done.
Ms. Stallings said, "Some-
times there is a sidewalk here.
and a sidewalk there," referring
to small stretches of sidewalk
that are not connected, and
officials can choose to connect
the dots by pouring smaller
sections of sidewalk to connect
the two. She also recommend-
ed flashing beacons, conve-
niently placed bike racks and
bold signs.
Sergeant Kimberly Hill, of
GCSO, is the vice chair for the
CTST. She is directing plans for
the Safety Fair on Saturday,
March 17. There was a great
deal of enthusiasm in the room
while she and the team mem-
bers discussed their efforts at
creating events for that day.
Members and other workers
will come from the Florida
Highway Patrol, Glades County
Sheriff's Office, EMS, the
school district, city and county
officials.
Attractions for residents
include.a bike rodeo, school
bus safety course, roll over
vehicle, kid fingerprint ID kits,
crash test dummies Vince and
Larry with stranger danger,
food and drinks. More educa-
tion and exhibit equipment
from other counties is tenta-
tively planned.
The Safety Fair will be from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the city
park on'March 17.
The focus will be on com-
mon sense and safety for
pedestrians, bicycle riders,
vehicle passengers and drivers.
Call Sgt. Kimberly Hill at 946-
1600 if you would like to volun-
teer, or if your business would
like to donate beverages,
snacks, coupons, or prizes for
children and teens.

Thank You from the

Warren L. Brown Family


How can we really say thank you for all the outpouring of love, food, cards
and support with which we were blessed at the passing of our husband, father, PaPa,
brother and uncle, Warren L. Brown. We were overwhelmed by our family and friends in
the community and from places near and far who came to offer their comfort and
memories for this man who was so loved by all of us. Please know how much our
hearts were touched and how much we appreciate everything that was done. We hope
that the following will somehow give you an idea of the gratitude we feel and the man
that we loved (and still do):
We Thank You
"Thank You" seems such an inadequate phrase
To tell you how we really feel
For all of the wonderful things that you did
From your thoughts to your prayers to the meals
For all who took time to come visit
For all who wrote letters and cards
For all who came to the services
Who gave comfort in times so hard
For all who sent beautiful flowers and plants
To remind us how much you cared
For those who came from so far away
For stories that with us you shared
We will hold in our hearts and remember the thoughts
That you took precious time to convey
We "Thank You" and hope that somehow these words
Will express how we feel in some way.

Public Service

Commission

marks benefits
TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Public Service Commission (PSC)
marked the benefits of energy
conservation and demand-side
management programs in its
annual report (Report) on activi-
ties related to the Florida Energy
Efficiency and Conservation Act
(FEECA). The PSC sets energy
savings goals for the seven elec-
tric utilities subject to FEECA and
the Report, delivered to the Gov-
ernor and the Legislature,
describes the utilities' efforts.
The PSC reviews demand-side
management goals for the utili-
ties at least once every five years
and each utility files its plans for
meeting those objectives with
the Commission. A variety of pro-
grams for residential and com-
mercial customers include
incentives for conducting energy
audits, installing energy-efficient
equipment, and reducing electri-
cal consumption during peak
periods. Since 1980, these
demand-side management pro-
grams have reduced the state's
summer peak electrical demand
by nearly 5,000 megawatts (MW)
and winter peak demand by
more than 5,500 MW. By con-
serving energy, Floridians have
deferred the need for building
ten 500 MW power plants, the
equivalent of enough electricity
for 1.6 million households.
The PSC has recently
approved several new and
revised conservation programs
sponsored by the utilities. By
using these programs, con-
sumers are expected to reduce
summer and winter peak
demand by an additional 798 and
861 MW, respectively, by2015.
"By conserving energy and
generating electricity with renew-
ables, we can reduce our depend-
ence on oil and natural gas," said
PSC Chairman Lisa Polak Edgar.
The Report shows that 1,100
MW of electricity came from
renewable sources (municipal
solid waste, biomass, hydropow-
er, and landfill gas) last year.
The PSC is committed to mak-
ing sure that Florida's consumers
receive their electric, natural gas,
telephone, water, and wastewater
services in a safe, affordable, and
reliable manner. The PSC exercis-
es regulatory authority over utili-
ties in the areas of rate base/eco-
nomic regulation; competitive
market oversight; and monitoring
of safety, reliability, and service.

Charges
Continued From Page 1
"actively looking for other victims,"
said Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney
Doug Molloy.
Those state charges were
dropped in May of 2006 and Tyler
was then turned over to federal
authorities for prosecution.
In a May 12,2006, interview, Mr.
Molloy said Tyler would be charged
with six counts of transmission of
child pornography.

building on Tuesday, Feb. 27. She
was grooming her dairy heifer
named Fendie which received
fourth place out of 19 in the Calves
Class 1 for Holsteins. Ms. Simmons
loves working with these beautiful
animals and has been in 4H/FFA for
about seven years.
Her 4H classmate, Stacie Whid-
den was there on Tuesday. She is a
high school senior and has been
involved with these programs
about 13 years. Her beef steer, Boo
Boo, is a black angus and weighed
in at 1,100 pounds. Ms. Whidden
has a good time with her project
and said, "It's fun. It's a challenge
though. Some animals are rough
and you have to get used to their
ways."
Wayne Henderson, a sopho-
more, confirmed how rough it can
be.
"It is not as easy as it looks," said
Wayne. You can get kicked,
stomped, and dragged, Mr. Hen-


charges were not pursued.
"The defendant's mother
addressed the court Monday and
said his (Tyler's) son is in her cus-

phone interview Tuesday, March 6,
2007.
Ms. Viacava said where the
child, who was 10 at the time of
Tyler's arrest, will remain will be up
to the state.
Court documents indicate that a
computer forensic examination of
Tyler's two computers and two

movies depicting minor boys
engaging in sexually explicit con-
duct, stated a press release from
the U.S. Attorney's Office in Fort
Myers.

Buford, weighed in at 1,190
pounds.
That same day, Kristen Taylor, a
junior, was hard at work making
her swine exhibit look as perfectly
groomed as possible. Her Hamp-
shire hog, Cracker, was being pre-
pared for the competition that
night. Ms. Taylor has been showing
livestock for five years. She said, "It
is a lot of fun, it just takes time. I
really enjoy 4H."
On Wednesday, Feb. 28, Dustin
Cardin, a sophomore, was making
sure Sparky was well groomed.
Sparky was awarded top place for
Largest Daily Weight gain. Mr.
Cardin received a belt buckle for
the hefty 1,480 pound steer. He
said, "It can be hard to deal with,
but it's not too hard once you get
used to it."
Laura Ahern, second grade
teacher, was in the livestock build-
ing that Wednesday, too. Her fami-
ly's project was dairy cows. She
was pleased with the Cowboy Con-

display. Her class participated

That release goes on to state
that on Jan. 25, 2005, while living in
Lakeport, Tyler transmitted three
images of an identified minor boy
engaging in sexually explicit con-
duct in an online chat session. Tyler
had taken the photos of the boy on
Dec. 20, 2003, while living in Bre-
vard County.
On April 21, 2004, states the
release, Tyler produced two images
of his adopted minor son engaging
in sexually explicit conduct. He
then sent these images via messen-
ger photo sharing on April 22, 2004.
On April 12, 2005, Tyler pro-

Each child crafted a paper cowboy

It is a take home project, Ms.
Ahern said, "Parents are asked to
assist and guide, but the children
are required to make it."
Wyatt Ward won first place, and
the chamber of commerce donat-
ed a book of amusement ride tick-
ets as a prize.
Also on hand was the 4H Pee
Wee display board which showed
photos of the youngest exhibitors
from ages five to seven. By each
photo there is a wooden cutout of
an animal and it is decorated by
each member. The large display
board is crafted to look like a red
barn and was done by Mr. Huys-
man's high school art class.
Many parents, grandparents,
friends and volunteers pitched in to
help children and teens with their

Terri Smith, a 4H volunteer, was

FPL, HRMC sponsor Glades Hendry Job Fair


GLADES COUNTY Glades
and Hendry EDCs team up to assist
businesses with recruitment
With the construction of a new
FPL West County Energy slated to
begin this spring, plans to con-
struct a new emergency room and
surgical suite at Hendry Regional
Medical Center in Clewiston, as
well as an urgent care center in
LaBelle, the opening of the new
Glades County Detention Center in
July, and the anticipated siting of
new manufacturing and commer-
cial businesses elsewhere in
Glades and Hendry Counties in
coming months, finding employ-
ees for new businesses and assist-
ing existing businesses with staff
development has become more
crucial than ever.
"Glades and Hendry County
are on track to become the land
for opportunity for students who
want to pursue a career close to
home," Ms. Whirls said, noting
that past economic development
marketing studies have shown
that employees will travel up to 75
miles to work in high wage/high
skilled jobs.
For that reason, the Glades
County Economic Development
Council Inc,, and Hendry County
Economic Development Council
have teamed up with Florida
Power and Light, Hendry Region-
al Medical Center and the Career
and Services Center of Southwest
Florida to organize the 2007
Glades-Hendry County Job Fair
and Career Expo Thursday, March
15, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the
Doyle Conner Bldg., 900 US 27
S.W, Moore Haven.
According to Glades EDC execu-
tive director Tracy Whirls, the joint
Job Fair and Career Expo will not
only be the first step in matching
qualified candidates with area busi-
nesses' staff development needs,
but will mark the launch of an effort
to identify and track candidates


seeking training and education in
their particular field of interest.
Area residents can sign up now
for positions with FPL's contractors,
West County Power Partners, LLC
for positions which could keep
them gainfully employed through
2013 and beyond, Ms. Whirls said.
West County Power Partners,
LLC will begin hiring by the end of
May to fill 900 construction jobs,
related to the construction of FP's
West County Energy Center, a natu-
ral-gas electricity plant at 20-mile
bend in Loxahatchee.
According to Sherry Thomas,
with West County Power Partners,
LLC, the company will be hiring
pipefitters, welders, laborers, car-
penters, cement finishers, mill-
wrights, ironworkers, electricians
and even some clerical staff.
While some skilled positions
will be needed, opportunities will
be available for laborers and "green
helpers," with salaries expected to
range from $10-$11.25 an hour to
start. Applicants must be 18, but no
high school diploma is required.
"Once we get people hired,
we'll start having classes," Ms.
Thomas said, noting that with an
expected 50 hour per week work
week, with jobs paying time and a
half over 40 hours, even the entry
level positions will be competitive.
Skilled tradesmen can expect to do
even better, with positions avail-
able for NCCR certified journey-
men starting out at $22 an hour.
With ground already broken
and construction on the West
County Energy Center slated to
begin within two months, the
expectation is that construction
crews will be able to work through
that project, the first phase of which
will be finished in 2009 and begin
work on construction of the FPL
Glades Power Park near Moore
Haven in the summer of 2008.
As the first unit of the Glades
Power Park is not expected to


come on line before 2012, skilled
tradesmen from the entire area
will be gainfully employed for
manyyears.
"We're very excited about this
because once folks from our
region start getting jobs, every-
thing we've been talking about
moves closer to becoming a reali-
ty," Ms. Whirls said.
Invitations have been sent to
high schools in Glades, Hendry,
Highlands, Palm Beach, Okee-
chobee, DeSoto, Hardee and Lee
Counties, urging them to bring
their upper classmen to the career
development event. Junior and
senior high school students will be
asked to register and identify their
career goals, to assist the EDCs
and the Career and Services Cen-
ter in helping them pursue train-
ing and job opportunities in their
fields of interest.
"The 2007 Glades County Job
and Career Expo will be the first
step in helping to match students
and other job seekers with entry
level as well as upper level employ-
ment opportunities in.their chosen
field, as well as education and train-
ing opportunities to help them find
the job of their dreams," Ms. Whirls
said, adding that .in addition to
companies and agencies, such as
FPL, Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter, Hope Hospice and Community
Service, Pedro's Concrete Pump-
ing, the Glades County Sheriff's
Office, Amor Correctional Health
Services, Nisbet Enterprises, United
States Sugar Corporation, Moore
Haven Correctional Facility, South
FloridaWater Management District,
Hendry County Board of County
Commissioners and others,
schools including the Education
Center of Southwest Florida, and
Edison College, are expected to be
on hand for the event.

Antibiotic resistance is a serious threat to all


By Rebekah Bernard, MD
"I started getting a scratchy
throat this morning," a patient
told me this morning. "Last time
this happened my doctor gave
me an antibiotic that knocked it
right out." Later on that day,
another patient told me, "I've
been taking my mother's left-
over penicillin for a sinus infec-
tion." Still another patient told
me that she was taking a Mexi-
can antibiotic that she got at a
local store. Although they don't
realize it, these three patients are
contributing to a very serious
crisis in medicine: the develop-
ment of super-strong bacteria
that are resistant to available
antibiotics.
Antibiotics were introduced
during the 1940's, and have

To prevent antibiotic resist- many antibiotics have serious

dations: Antibiotics should only be
Antibiotics should only be prescribed for definite bacterial


infections. Antibiotics do not
help viral infections, such as the
common cold or the flu. These
illnesses will generally get better
by themselves within a few days
to a week. Your doctor may rec-
ommend medicines to treat the
symptoms of these viruses, such
as pain relievers, cough syrups,
and decongestants. The best
treatment for viral infections is
plenty of rest, fluids, and avoid-
ance of cigarette smoke.
If antibiotics are pre-
scribed, take every pill until the
bottle is empty. It is difficult for
many people to finish their dose
of antibiotics, because they usu-
ally feel better before the antibi-
otics are completed. However,
not finishing the medicine can
allow any remaining bacteria to
become stronger and develop
resistance in the future.


Prevent infections before
they start. One of the best ways
to prevent infection is by fre-
quent hand washing or the use
of hand sanitizers. Cover your
mouth when you cough or
sneeze, and avoid work or
school when you are very ill to
prevent spreading infection. Vac-


cines are very useful in prevent-
ing infections such as pneumo-
nia and the flu. Don't smoke, as
smokers are more likely to
develop infections.
Doctors and patients can help
prevent antibiotic resistance by
working together against this
very serious problem.


Help 'Healthy Families Florida' continue


LABELLE Florida Legisla-
ture made a wise decision to
invest in Healthy Families Florida
in 1998. Healthy Families Florida
is the only program in Florida
proven to prevent child abuse
before it ever begins. The
nationally credentialed, commu-
nity-based, voluntary home visit-
ing program begins providing
services during pregnancy or at
the birth of a child. Healthy Fam-
ilies' services help parents cope
with challenges and learn neces-
sary skills to provide their chil-
dren with positive, nurturing
developmental experiences.
In Hendry and Glades Coun-
ties, Healthy Families is spon-
sored by Hendry and Glades
Counties Health Departments
and annually serves 210 families
and their children. Each year in
53 of Florida's 67 counties,


Healthy Families provides servic-
es to 13, 000 high-risk families,
while sparing 21,000, children
from injury, emotional and psy-
chological trauma, developmen-
tal delay or even worse.
An independent five-year eval-
uation showed that Healthy Fam-
ilies Florida's participants have
20 percent less child abuse and
neglect than all families in their
target service area in spite of the
fact that the participants are at
significantly higher risk for abuse
and neglect. Evidence-based out-
comes show that Healthy Fami-
lies Florida also improves the
health of mothers and their chil-
dren, increases parent-child
interaction, and improves family
self-sufficiency. Research has
shown investing in proven pre-
vention programs like Healthy
Families will avoid costs associat-

ed with abuse, such as the need
for out of home care, special
'education, teen pregnancy,
school dropouts, juvenile delin-
quency, and substance abuse.
The Legislature has contin-
ued to fund Healthy Families,
but the program has gone four
years without any increase to
address the escalating costs of
providing these important serv-
ices. If the program does not
receive a funding increase this
year, the quality of services pro-
vided, and thus the outstanding
results achieved in our commu-
nity and throughout Florida will
be severely compromised. Par-
enting is a demanding job and
parents and caregivers deserve
our support. Healthy Families

MHHS students participate in Ag Olympics
MOORE HAVEN On Feb. 23,
the entire Moore Haven
Junior/Senior High School was
invited to come out to the football ,
field for the Ag Olympics. Ag ,.
members wore the official colors
of blue and gold, but still had to I,.
remain within the limits of the ...
school dress code. Participants .' .. .
threw cow chips, competed in a
pedal tractor pull, made a dash to
the finish line in the sack race and
also used their best roping tech- - --
niques in the hay bale roping
competition. Even a few teachers
got into the act.
Mrs. Moss and Mrs. Hamilton
both threw a pretty mean cow
chip and pedaled their way
through the tractor pull. Mr.
Hutchinson and Mr. Ellinger both
participated in the sack race. ". ..
Future Farmers of America also
held an animal and plants exhibit
during the festivities. Some MHHS students participate in the sack races during the Ag Rodeo.

World's best cowboys ready



for Okeechobee and Brighton


Submitted photo/Angela Lanier
Eight seconds
Edison College student and Lakeport resident, Amy Ziegler stayed on the mechanical bull
for the full eight seconds during the Chalo-Nitka Festival held on March 3-4 in Moore
Haven. She said it was well worth the $5 ticket price.


OKEECHOBEE Florida will
be the site for the best rodeo
action in the nation when Okee-
chobee hosts the national Dodge
Xtreme Bulls Tour Presented by
B&W Trailer Hitches on March
10, as well as the Okeechobee
Rodeo, which runs March 10 and
11. In addition, the PRCA-sanc-
tioned 79th Annual Arcadia All-
Florida Championship Rodeo will
be held March 9-11, in Arcadia.
Forty of the world's top bull
riders will converge on the Fred
Smith Arena to take their shot at a
$60,000 purse on Saturday, March
10, at 8 p.m. at the Brighton Semi-
nole Reservation's Fred Smith
Arena for The Seminole Classic, a
nationally televised event on
ESPN. Competitors include 2006
Wrangler NFR World Champion
B.J. Schumacher and 2004 world
champion Dustin Elliott, as well
as 2006 Dodge Xtreme Bulls
national champion Zeb Lanham.

Bulls Tour Seminole Classic event


Torry Island to host an adventure race


BELLE GLADE On April 21,
in conjunction with the Black Gold
Jubilee, Belle Glade will host its first
adventure race, "Escape from
Torry Island." Adventure racing is a
growing sport throughout the
world. According to the, United
States Adventure Race Association,
it is estimated that 250,000 people
have participated in adventure
races during the last five years. The
vast majority of adventure races
include rail running, mountain bik-
ing and, ideally, a paddling event.
Belle Glade's adventure race
will consist of a three-mile run,
seven-mile bike, and a three-quar-
ter mile canoe, as well as a zip line.
This race is perfect for beginners
and adventurous enough for sea-
soned athletes. To simply compete
and have an enjoyable race, you do


not need to be an expert in any of
these events. Often a basic working
knowledge will suffice.
Soloist and teams of two or
three will compete. Canoes and life
vests will be provided. The partici-
pants must bring their own moun-
tain bike and helmet. The biking
section will consist mostly of dou-
ble track. The running section will
be single track with some dense
vegetation. The race will also
include some creative challenges
and obstacles. Many racers find the
team aspect of adventure racing to
be among the most enticing and
demanding aspects.
More detailed information
about the race and registration can
be found at www.torryisland.com.
For more information, call Kenny
Lutz, (561) 914-0373.

that so captured my attention that
I printed it out and placed it on the
bulletin board of the church. I
have since thought of what the
apostle Paul said in Galatians 5:16
"But if ye bite and devour one
another, take heed that ye be not
consumed one of another." Other
scriptures that came to mind were
James 3:14-18 and James 4:1-3
about the abusive tongue.
The picture that I'm referring to
is a 17-foot long Burmese python
that had swallowed a 6-foot alliga-
tor and in the process his body
had ruptured. At the bottom and


upper corner uf tl e picture yuu
can see part of the python with its
head missing. Evidently the swal-
lowing took place after a bitter
struggle between the snake and
the alligator. In the end, both
came out losers. This gruesome
scene was spotted by a helicopter
pilot in the Florida Everglades on
Sept. 26.
The Burmese python are native
to SoutheastAsia and grow to be
as long as 20 feet. We are told that
more than 144,000 Burmese
python have been imported to the
United States in the past five years,
and being young and very small,
they are bought for pets. Evidently

the past two years, 156 have been
documented as having been cap-

They seem to be multiplying
and challenging the alligator as
the monarch of the swamps.
Sometimes the snake wins; some-
times the alligator wins. Some-
times it is a draw. A python was
seen wrapping himself around an
alligator. The alligator rolls and
tumbles, and fights and bites.
After about 24 hours of this, the
encounter obviously ended in a
draw, with both swimming off
and vanishing. It would seem that

flesh, remember what Paul said,
"But if ye bite and devour one
another, take heed that ye be not
consumed one of another." Fuss-
ing and fighting are not civil, being
beneath the dignity of creatures

being Christian. Spiritually speak-
ing, there are no winners in carnal
disputations. "Take heed!"

You know it's going to be a bad day when ...


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
You know it's going to be a
bad day when you call your
answering service and they tell
you it's none of your business.
You know it's going to be a bad
day when your horn goes off
accidentally and remains stuck
as you follow a group of Hell's
Angels on the freeway. And for
those who are more chronologi-
cally gifted: You know it's going
to be a bad day when you sink
your teeth into a beautiful steak
and they stay there. You know it's
going to be a bad day when you
try to straighten out the wrinkles
in your socks only to find that
you aren't wearing any.
We all have days like that. We
all get discouraged. No one is
exempt.


A clergyman in his fifties had
written a manuscript for a book
and sent it to a host of publishers
without success. He grew so dis-
couraged that he threw the man-
uscript into a waste paper bas-
ket. As his wife tried to salvage
the manuscript, he told her stern-
ly. "We've wasted enough time
on it. I forbid you to take it from
the wastebasket."
The next day his wife decided
that the manuscript should be
seen by at least one more pub-
lisher. Not wanting to disobey
her husband, she arrived at that
publisher's office with the most
unusual looking package that the
publisher's office had ever
received as a manuscript. Under
the wrapping of brown paper
was a wastepaper basket still
holding the clergyman's manu-
script.
This man's wife had been


able to achieve her goal without
having to go against the wishes
of her husband. She did not
remove the manuscript from the
waste paper basket, the publish-
er did. That manuscript was Nor-
man Vincent Peale's "The Power
of Positive Thinking," which at
last report has sold more than 30
million copies.
We all get discouraged. Even
Norman Vincent Peale can get
discouraged. All of us walk
through the valley at some time
in our lives. Our faith is what gets
us through. Faith is that unshake-
able sense of trust that keeps us
going through life's dark and dif-
ficult valleys.
We all get downhearted, but
we do not have to be defeated,
for Christ is with us. In our faith
we have that assurance. But in
our faith is also a promise. Faith,
to really be faith, always has a


forward look, a positive expecta-
tion, and an unquenchable hope.
There is a thread that runs
from the first chapters of the
Bible right on through the last
verses of Revelation. It is a thread
that continued through the early
church, the Reformation, the
Wesleyan revivals and is still to
be found among the followers of
Jesus today. That thread is, of
course, the knowledge that the
God who has created us will for-
ever be with us. We are His peo-
ple and the sheep of His pasture.
Embracing this in faith helps
nurture within us an unshake-
able sense of trust that will keep
us going through career changes,
bouts with cancer, the loss of
.loved ones, and all of the wilder-
ness experiences and bad days
that are part of living in this
world.


Taking on all comers; obvious and not-so-obvious ills


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
1 watched the account of
newsman Bob Woodruff and his
wife Lee on television recently;
about how he was injured in an
attack in Iraq and how he came to
be restored to a more whole life.
He was in a coma for 36 days; not
surprising due to the amount of
brain damage suffered and the
loss of a large part of his left hemi-
sphere. The story told of those
who did not make it, those who
made it but were seriously and
permanently incapacitated, the
doctors and specialists who had
to say again and again "We don't
know" when families pressed for
answers to "Will he be all right?"
There was another shocking
detail pointed out in the story.
Bob Woodruff suffered from a
:clearly visible .injury; plain for
Severyone.to see. There were also
those who suffer during the war
Sfrom.i "closed head injuries" too.
Concussions and shocks caused
within-the-head injuries that were
not as obvious or visible. In fact, it
was conjectured that such


injuries might be even more
prevalent than those that were so
plainly visible. One of the
vignettes in the account told of a
serviceman who came home
from the war and "knew some-
thing was wrong" but showed no
visible signs of injury and how
long it took to finally find out the
extent of his very-real injuries. It is
natural to sympathize with per-
sons who are obviously injured
and visibly handicapped; others
who are just as worthy of our sup-
port and understanding don't
always get it.
Recently, a newscast told
about a group on the east coast
asking their community to crack
down on persons who have
handicapped parking permits but
who are in good health. The
group claimed that healthy per-
sons are depriving those who
really have needs and that the city
should do something. I wondered
about just how many of those
who have less-than-visible
injuries suffer not only from their
injuries but from the criticism of
those who really don't know. I
also thought about the real fault
lying with those who provide the
documentation to enable persons


to get such permits, who most
likely will never hear of the first
complaint.
In one of the healing accounts
in the New Testament, Luke
writes about Jesus going to the
home of Simon and healing a
fever that struck his mother-in-
law. The account goes on to tell
that "When the sun was setting,
the people brought to Jesus all
who had various kinds of sick-
ness, and laying His hands on
each one, He healed them (Luke
4:38-40)." It seems insofar as ill-
ness was concerned, Jesus took
on all comers. There was no
triage or deciding who was and
who was not worthy; it was that
each of the persons presenting
with the "various kinds of sick-
ness" was touched.
I would suspect that today
Jesus would heal those who have
less visible injuries and sickness-
es; those who are addicted and
bear few visible marks of their
sickness, those who repel us by
the sickness of their selfishness,
those who must be unable to care
about others and thus are incom-
plete in their development as
whole persons. In some senses, it
might seem that sickness and sin


are synonymous; but one tends to
get our pity and the other makes
us feel repulsed. Sometimes we
miss out because our reactions
get in the way; the Lord took on
all comers and saw beyond what
was outward into the hurting,
poorly developed, handicapped
spirit. That's much harder to do! It
doesn't mean being used or
manipulated, being abused just
because someone has problems;
it does mean recognizing and
working to heal, seeing beneath
the obvious and caring in spite of
ordinary human reactions. Peo-
ple tell us in many different ways
"I hurt" and some are more easily
heard or understood than others.
We are called to help heal in spite
of what we see; in spite of what
the victim- thinks (or says) he
needs, in spite of what is obvious,
in spite of what "turns us off." The
people that saw Jesus heal all of
the various illnesses wanted Him
to stay around with them after-
ward. I find that He stays around
with us when we follow His
examples too; taking on all com-
ers, healing, caring, seeing
beyond the obvious and doing
good in spite of those who really
need it.
