Carnival workers arrested


Undercover
operation leads
to drug arrests

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The sher-
iff's department recently
launched crime prevention pro-
grams which have resulted in
arrests and help ensure an
increased level of safety for coun-


ty residents.
The most recent operation,
"Operation Safe Children," was
conducted during the Chalo
Nitka Festival.
In the first part of the opera-
tion, the sheriff's office obtained
a list of employee names from
the carnival managers. Everyone
scheduled to work during Chalo
Nitka was given a background
check. Employees were checked
to see if any were registered sex
offenders, or sexual predators,
and none were found.


The second part of the opera-
tion was conducted to see if any
carnival workers were selling or
buying illegal drugs. This
involved a much more pro-active
approach to weeding out crime.
The sheriff's department used
an undercover officer to mingle
with carnival employees, and

this resulted in four arrests.
The four carnival employees
were charged with offenses
which included dealing in stolen
property, giving false information
to a law enforcement officer,


purchase of cocaine, possession
of cocaine, cocaine possession
with intent to sell, purchase of
marijuana, and possession of
marijuana.
Sheriff Stuart Whiddon gives
credit to the Criminal Investiga-
tion Division (CID) for the suc-
cessful operation. These officers
were crucial in implementing the
operation, the sheriff said. These
officers include: Detective
Sergeants Steve Harris, Mike
Pepitone, Don Salo, Terry Deese
and Captain Daryle Lewis.


"This is part of an ongoing
effort to attempt to control the
drug traffic in Glades County,"
said Sheriff Whiddon. "We are
working hard at it because we
are a small county."
The sheriff said a good deal of
the drug traffic passes through
Glades County and does not nec-
essarily originate locally.
The department will continue
its efforts to control the drug traf-

County is in



a financial



emergency


Manager pins
hopes on FPL
power plant

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY- There
is a narrow road in Glades
County that according to
County Manager Wendell Tay-
lor spans about nine feet from
the dividing stripe to the outer
edge:
School buses traveling the


road pay extra attention in the
event another bus is coming in
from the opposite direction.
On the occasion that hap-
pens, one of them must pull
into the grass on the side of
Loblolly Road to let the other
go through.
The Florida Department of
Transportation has allocated
$2.6 million to resurface the
roads, which would be
enough for only about 40 per-
cent of the necessary work,
according to Mr. Taylor.

City readies



for new bank


Traffic light
effectiveness
discussed

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The
Moore Haven City Council met
March 6 and discussed possible
traffic entranceways for the
new branch of First Bank of
Clewiston.
The bank has .purchased
property near the intersection
of U.S. 27 and West Avenue.
Carey Soud, executive vice
president for First Bank of


Clewiston, was reached last
week by phone for more infor-
mation.
S"Our plans are to have a
branch there within twelve
months," said Mr. Soud. "We
are going full-bore to get it
done."
Mr. Soud also mentioned
Moore Haven's possible need
for commercial space,;and that
perhaps they will build with
future expansion in mind, or to
rent out spaces.
The building of this branch
is also a way for Miller Couse to
return to his hometown.

Sheriff's office
donates vehicle
with radio

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
PALMDALE The Palmdale
Community presents a chal-
lenge for law enforcement. In
this rural Glades County com-
munity, residences are in small
hamlets, or in more remote
areas.
Sometimes the nearest
neighbor is a quarter of a mile,
or a half mile away. In these
woodlands and sometimes
wetlands, it is a good idea to
look out for your neighbor.
The Glades County Sheriff's
Office sponsors a crime watch
program called Citizens on
Patrol (COP). It offers a vehicle
with a radio to rural communi-
ties who have volunteers who
go out on patrol and watch for


unusual activity in the commu-
nity. They look for suspicious
activity that may victimize local
folks, and they look for fires.
If the Citizens on Patrol see
something alarming, they noti-
fy local authorities immediately.
Last month a sign up list for
volunteers began in Palmdale.
Mary Hollingsworth helped
organize the group. She and
other residents have jobs, vol-
unteer jobs or are retired senior
citizens. Currently, the volun-
teer list offers a few names,
including Mary, Joy, Lois, Myr-
tle, Bessie, Denna and Joyce.
For a short while the citizens
on patrol used their own vehi-
cles. Then a Glades County
Sheriff's vehicle was donated
and now each of them must be
certified to drive it. If they are
not certified as a driver, it does
not stop them from "riding
shotgun" and manning the
radio.
One day not too long ago,


there was a controlled burn on
agricultural property. After it
seemed as though it was under
.control and had stopped, it fired
up again and moved across a
fence line.
Ms. Hollingsworth spotted it
and reported it to authorities
and the local land owner.
Ms. Hollingsworth and the
others are pleased that sheriff's
office loans them the vehicle
and provides the maintenance
for it.
"They even come out once a
.month to our meetings," she
said.
According to Ms.
Hollingsworth, volunteers are
careful and only make observa-
tions.
"We just drive around and
look," said Ms. Hollingsworth.
"If we see something suspi-
cious we just leave, then call it
in."

A Cowboys Church


now in Palmdale


Denna Scantland
is local minister

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
PALMDALE On the sec-
ond Thursday of each month.
the Cowboys Church in Palm-
dale holds an evening service at
6:30 p.m.
Visiting ministers are asked
to come and preach. "Some
will come a hundred miles to
preach," said Denna Scantland,
founder of the church. "And
they know they are not going to
get money."
What they find when they
get there is plenty of coffee and
a table adorned with a potluck
dinner. They also find regular
members and newcomers. The
need for fellowship brings
those who have come to listen,
and the need to share their
message brings the visiting


ministers.
Denna Scantland began her
preaching and ministry of char-
ity in Venus, when she returned
to Florida after helping her par-
ents in Ohio. She has been in
Palmdale for the last five years.
SIn addition to founding the
Cowboys Church in 2001, Ms.
Scantland is the president of
Hand in Hand Ministries, which
does charity work.
She and other church mem-
bers are grateful that the com-
munity lets them use the Palm-
dale Community Clubhouse for
services and for headquarters
when there is an emergency.
During the last hurricane
season, there was flooding
throughout the area and local
people were stranded in their
homes and RV's. They were
unable to leave their homes
and get groceries, supplies and
dry clothes.

Local athlete excited about future


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Glades Cen-
tral student athlete Deonte
Thompson is looking forward to
his college venture, slated to
begin this fall.
For Mr. Thompson, 18, his
high school career will be one
that he will always cherish and
remember. However, Mr.
Thompson said that he knows
life must go on.
Mr. Thompson will be attend-
ing the University of Florida, the
school that he picked over other
football schools such as USC,
LSU, Florida State, Ohio State
and the University of Miami.
Mr. Thompson's mother, Ver-


lene Roberts, said that her son is
the first person in their family to
go to college on a scholarship.
"I am very happy for Deonte,"
said Ms. Roberts. "It will give his
little cousins, nieces and
nephews hope to succeed in
school."
Mr. Thompson said his suc-
cess has been possible in part
because of his mother instilling
in him the importance of obey-
ing authority and humility, two
traits that have contributed to his
strong bond with Ms. Roberts.
"Obedience will make me
live longer," said Mr. Thompson.
"I will do everything in my
power to make her proud."
Mr. Thompson also said that
his mother taught him how to be


independent during his child-
hood. He said that it had much
to do with his father not being
around much of the time and his
mother raising him on her own.
Mr. Thompson said he does-
n't want his five-month-old
daughter, Deaja, to have that
same experience he had.
"My daughter is everything to
me and I want the best for her,"
said Mr. Thompson.
Mr. Thompson said that being
close to his daughter is a key
component to him staying in
Florida for college.
Mr. Thompson said that he
expects to get a great education
at the University of Florida,
where he will major in business.
He also said that he expects to


meet new people, be a great
football player there, and have a
great experience.
Mr. Thompson said that he
doesn't take this experience for
granted in a football sense.
"It's a blessing to be able to
still play football," said Mr.
Thompson. "Some of my former
teammates have played their last
football game at the state cham-
pionships."
Mr. Thompson said that giv-
ing his life over to a higher
authority about a year ago paved
the way for his future.
"Without Christ, my success
wouldn't be possible," said Mr.
Thompson.

Annual Garden Club



meeting in county


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
The annual garden club bar-
beque of the Glades County Gar-
den Club was held Tuesday
March 6 in the garden patio of
Larry Luckey, Glades County
Property Appraiser and long-
time member of the oldest gar-
den club in Glades County.
Forty-eight members and
guests enjoyed Larry's bar-
beque, both chicken and pork
steaks, barbequed on an open
pit using fresh sour oranges for
basting.
There are those who say that
the sour orange method is the
secret to bringing out the most
desired flavors of both chicken
and pork.
And, as Larry says, "It's about
as Southern as you can get!"
All members in attendance
brought their own favorite
recipe dishes,
including desserts, to add to
the garden feast.
President Harry Raboldt wel-
comed members and guests,
calling attention to future meet-
ings and events.
Since its founding 30 years
ago, the Glades County Garden
Club has devoted time, talent
and funds to beautifying various
locations in Moore Haven.
Probably the most prominent
example is the plantings at the


Welcome to Moore Haven sign.
In addition, for years the club
has planted memorial trees
throughout the city and county
for members who have passed
on.
The club is one of the few
organizations of its kind that
urges both men and women to
participate. The membership is
made up of couples, widows
and widowers.
Since 1979, an on-going proj-
ect of the club has been the
Glades County Schools plant
competition. Students (usually
5th graders) at both Moore
Haven Elementary School and
West Glades are given starter or
seedling plants to nurture into
sizes suitable to be planted in the
ground. There is always a variety
of plants. Judges are members
of the garden club.
"We only have a few ways in
which to raise funds to keep our
projects alive and healthy," said
Diana Winiecke, past president.
"One of those ways is our regu-
lar raffles at most of our events
and, of course, regular dues of
our members."
Meetings are held the first
Tuesday of each month.
The next regular meeting is
scheduled for April 3 in the com-
munity room of the Moore
Haven Library at 10:30 a.m.
A covered dish luncheon will
follow at high noon.

Daughter wins award
Donna Wiggins holds a plaque awarded to her daughter,
Kattie Wiggins, 12. Kattie was named to the Who's Who
List of outstanding students for her unyielding dedication
to learning and doing well at her school. Kattie passed
away last year in an automobile accident, but her parents
continue to remember the little girl. If she could talk to her,
Donna would tell her daughter, "We're proud of you. We
love you. We miss you."

Letters to the Editor


We want the truth
My name is Mary Cosmo, Stu-
dent from International, working
on a research paper. As I gather
more information, the questions
are becoming endless. I attended
the Glades County Power Park
presentation on Tuesday, Feb. 20
and Hendry County Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners' workshop held
on Tuesday, Feb. 27 and I believe
there is a discrepancy in what was
presented concerning the pro-
posed Glades Power Parks trans-
mission lines.
At Glades County Power Park
public information presentation
given by, Martha McNeal, McNeal
Consulting Services Inc, showed
the public a map of several routs
that FP&L have proposed to the
state where the potential routes
and alternate routes may occur.
When asked the question at the
end of presentations, which of the
potential routes shown would the
power lines be built? Martha stated,
"At this time we are unsure of the
route that would be taken," but
assured the public, "the transmis-
sion lines would follow one of the
routes shown in her presentation."
So, why is it that at Hendry County
Board of County Commissioners
workshop did Martha McNeal,
McNeal Consulting Services, Inc.,
present a specific route the trans-
mission lines would built, also
added that this specific route was
filed in FP&L's application to the
state in December of 2006. Why
were several routes presented at
the Glades County meeting and the
specific route FP&L submitted to
the state not disclosed? Was it per-
haps that a considerable amount of
residents and concerned citizens
had attended in Glades County?
What exactly is FP&L avoiding?
Could it be, too much press on a
coal power plant could be toxic to
their plan? Was it that Hendry
County's workshop, at four in the


afternoon, the turn out of most resi-
dence and concerned citizens were
at work and unable to attend?
I understand the main objective
for business is to turn a profit. Coal
is cheaper, but the most toxic to the
environment and humans. TXU, a
Texas based electric utility, is proof
of that. TXU was offered $69.25 per
share by investors, a 15 percent
premium over TXU's closing share
price on Friday. Buyers have prom-
ised to scrap eight out of 11 new
coal fired power plants in the
efforts to gain environmental agen-
cies approval. In addition, TXU's
environmental image needs a face
lift. This controversy behind the
toxins emitted when coal is used
for power plants should send a red
flag when making any business
decision.
I am not saying we, the state,
don't need power, I just want to
truth. Electricity has become a
necessity in today's world. But,
"today's world" is exactly what we
have to worry about. There are
many other renewable energy solu-
tions we need to explore. Everyone
in this community deserves the
truth. We are the people of this land;
we have a voice that will be heard,
and ears to listen to new ideas, not
50year old toxic technologies.
May Cosmo
In defense of
Miss Peterson
Dear Editor;
My husband and I are lifetime
members of SAVE OUT CREEKS
(SOC) of Palmdale. We and many
others do not want a coal-fired
steam boiler to be built in Glades
County. We want to tell Tom Gask-
ins that his attack on Miss Ellen
Peterson was not right, and not
acceptable. She has given a lot to
Glades County through her efforts
to support the fight to save Fisheat-
ing Creeks. In fact, Miss Peterson


has devoted most of her retirement
years to saving our environment
from ourselves.
Several years after this victory,
she helped keep the Fisheating
Creek Campground open so our
access to the creek would be
saved. And she is still working with
SOC. This group recently was
awarded a grant to resort the
Cypress Knee Museum that Tom
Gaskins father dedicated his life to.
This museum and other natural
attractions are where Glades Coun-
ty should get their money to help
operate the county. Not what looks
like bribe money from those who
would destroy our environment.
Just because Lykes Brothers owns
over 60 percent of our county
shouldn't mean that they have the
power to help bring in destructive
life threatening large corporations
who money makers always go to
the poorest and least populated
areas. Of course, they count on
having little opposition. You or they
may believe that since many of us
don't have college education we
are dumb enough to fall for their
propaganda.
What these movers and shakers
.don't realize is we are informed
enough to find some of the best sci-
entists in the land and we listen to
what they tell us. We do under-
stand that much of what FPL's paid
staff is telling us is not proven. For
instance, billions of gallons of hot
water waste being pumped into
deep wells (over 3,000 feet deep).
Will these deep unpotable aquifers
begin bubbling to the surface and
create sink holes; will the water dis-
solve calcium which makes up
limestone? It has been proven that
mercury is already killing our bass
so we are advised to eat fish once a
week and we'll survive. But isn't
mercury cumulative? We also
know that in North Florida the EPA
(after those naive environmental-
ists sued them) had to truck water


to the farmers whose water had
arsenic in their well water because
the EPA allowed limits were deter-
mined by the court to be inade-
quate. Bottom line, we do not want
mercury in any shape, amount or
form, or any carbon dioxide.
Shame on you Tom Gaskins.
Now, please let everyone know that
you tried to get SOC's right-of-way
to Fisheating Creek sold to Becky
Hendry and that could have
removed public access to everyone.
Could this be the real reason
you want Miss Ellen Peterson to go
away?
Respectfully,
Mrs. DoraSimmons
Palmdale

Welcome change
Dear Editor,
FPL's proposed power plant for
Glades County is welcome change.
For residents that have lived in
this region for decades, we've
watched too many of our children
grow up and leave. We, as a region,
can't afford to stay on a path of zero
development. Growth, done right,
is good. Change is good.
Whether we like it or not,
change is coming to the rural interi-
or of Florida, and we have a chance
to manage our growth from the
outset. We have the chance to plan
for infrastructure and build a strong
economy.
Or we can do nothing and get
nothing.
This new, modern coal plant is
the first step in giving new life to
Hendry and Glades counties. It's
the first step towards legitimate tax
bases for both counties. It's a
chance for real, good-paying job
opportunities for the entire region.
This project is an opportunity for a
better economy for this rural region
ofFlorida.
Sincerely,
FrancisT. Ryder
LaBelle resident


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 construct
a new emergency room and surgi-
cal 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 manufac-
turing and commercial businesses
elsewhere in Glades and Hendry
Counties in coming months, finding
employees for new businesses and
assisting 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 cose 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 Regional 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 FPLs 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 FPL'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 trades-
men 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, everything we've
been talking about moves closer to
becoming a reality," 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 \\ill be
asked to register and identify their
career goals, to assist the EDCs and
the Career and Services Center in
helping them pursue training 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

ter, Hope Hospice and Community
Service, Pedro's Concrete Pump-
ing, the Glades County Sheriff's

Coal is generating more and more interest in the energy industry due to the
development of highly efficient modern coal plants and the latest advance-
ments in pollution control technologies. Highly efficient means substantial-
ly less coal is used to produce the same amount of electricity and with fewer
emissions than older, traditional coal-fired power plants. Florida Power &
Light's goal is to meet reliably its customers' growing demand for electricity
in an environmentally responsible manner. To ensure that power is there
when it is needed and to protect against potential interruptions to the
state's natural gas supply due to hurricanes or other unforeseen events, FPL
has sought to diversify its fuel sources, focusing on abundant and lower cost
fuels such as coal.

After an extensive evaluation of
USCPC Pollution Control Technology
modern coal technologies, FPL
determined that an advanced tech-
nology called ultra-supercritical j
pulverized coal (USCPC) is the best G G F brk her

highest level of efficiency and will sy stems ,-

tion in this country. This industry- ....-.
leading generation technology is being proposed for the FPL Glades Power
Park and will be coupled with an extensive array of advanced pollution
control technologies to minimize air emissions. The result is an advanced
technology coal plant design using an abundantly available resource that
provides a reliable supply of electricity to meet our future needs.

Another developing technology that uses coal to produce electricity is
called Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) technology. Unlike
the USCPC technology proposed for the FPL Glades Power Park, IGCC is
ot yet a proven technology in the commercial size needed to meet our
tomers' needs. IGCC is more expensive to build and operate and does


not yet provide a highly reliable source of electricity. More significantly to
the local community, IGCC is not as efficient as USCPC meaning more
coal would be required to produce the same amount of electricity. And,
while IGCC would require substantial reengineering and rebuilding of the
plant to incorporate carbon capture and sequestration technologies when
they become commercially available, FPL's proposed plant design can be
readily modified to add emerging technologies.

When looking for a reliable, efficient and proven method for generating
electricity for its 4.4 million customers and growing FPL chose
USCPC technology for a new power plant that's proposed for a location
near Moore Haven. FPL carefully considered all options available before
concluding that this technology is
.....--.. the best choice to produce reliable
S.. power for our customers. The pro-
Y posed FPL Glades Power Park will, in

Saint Patrick: keeping God's view and seeing good anyway!


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There are some common
things known about Saint Patrick;
how he used the shamrock to
talk about the Trinity, how he was
supposed to have driven the
snakes out of Ireland and how he
is celebrated with the "Emerald
Isle" with his color being green.
March 17 is the day he is remem-
bered by the Irish and non-Irish
alike. Like many heroes of the
Church, we regard them as
"saints" because they have done
something worth remembering.
As I was digging into his biogra-
phy, I was impressed by a revela-
tion that told me about his char-
acter and something that made


him worthy of remembrance. It
seems that he was born in A.D.
385 in Britain and at age 16 was
captured and enslaved by a band
of Irish marauders. After some
time, he escaped and went to
France. There he studied the faith
with church members and he
was given a ministry. He returned
to his homeland, Britain, and
would have had an ordinary and
happy life there, but shortly after
being called to a higher office in
the Church, he decided to return
to Ireland. It is his work in Ireland
for which he is best known and
he has been remembered by the
Irish people and the world for his
faith and zeal. Returning there in
A.D. 432 would have made him
47 years old when he began that
ministry; his real ministry and


calling. He died in A.D. 461, mak-
ing him 61 years old and being
among the Irish only 14 years.
Every now Jp"F. '
and again, I
read about
persons who ,.-
have returned
to places
where they
have been
imprisoned or
abused.
Recently, there Samuel S.
have been Thom
prisoners of
war who have returned to the
countries where they were cap-
tured. Others have returned to
places of torment and fear: Nel-
son Mandela in South Africa or
some of our prisoners of war


returning to Viet Nam. We see
today those who return to the
war zones of the middle east;
after seeing first-hand and living
through what must have been
the worst experiences of their
lives. This must take a great deal
of courage and spiritual
strength; the majority of those
released or who escaped, never
want to go back and we can
understand why.
Apparently Patrick was one of
those people who did go back.
Not only did he want to go back,
but he ministered and became
greatly respected among those
who had originally captured and
enslaved him. He must have seen
something special among the
people that made him dedicate
the most fruitful years of his life to


them; something in spite of bad
first contacts. I will remember
Patrick for his example of
courage and seeing good when it
would have been so easy to see
bad. The Lord who looked down
from the cross and said "Father,
forgive them for they know not
what they do (Luke 23:34)"
would have been Patrick's exam-
ple. In the midst of His own suf-
fering, the Lord calls for forgive-
ness. He saw something good
among those who did not know
Him, those who tortured Him,
those who abandoned Him and
those who jeered Him and were
angry. The Lord taught "Love
your enemies and bless those
who persecute you (Matthew
5:44)" was to live out His teach-
ing in His own life: Patrick was to


follow Jesus' example and his
acts would change an entire peo-
ple. It is in living out what we
have been taught from God that
we can look for God's hand at
work in our lives.
In the midst of the worst of
things that could happen to us;
there is something to be learned,
something to call us to faith,
something to bring us closer to
God and something to prove to
be a chance to show what we
really believe. Patrick must have
seen something very good
among the people who enslaved
him, in spite of the circum-
stances and what happened. He
could see beyond just what was
going on; he had God's vision
about it all. That's what really
mattered and still does.


Growing up with blessings and woes, woes and blessings


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Growing up, we lived across
the street from Central Junior High
School. My friends and I played on
the school playground just about
every day. It was a simpler time, a
more trusting time. But things
were beginning to change.
One day at play, we noticed
that someone had put graffiti on
the wall of the school building. I'm
not sure I had ever seen graffiti
before. I know I hadn't seen one
of the two words scrawled on the
wall before. It began with the let-
ter "f" and the second word was
you. When we stopped by
Tommy's house later in the day,


Tommy and I shared what we had
read. His mother was horrified
and she said that if he said it again
he would get
his mouth
washed out
with soap; that
he was never to
say that word
or other words
like it. She sent
me home with
threats of call-
ing my parents John
and letting Hicks
them know
what we said. She ranted in the
way only a mother can rant and
she put the fear of God in me. I
don't think my parents were
informed about the situation, and


I was just as happy that they
weren't.
I learned my lesson: "nice peo-
ple don't curse". That way of see-
ing the world worked for me for a
long time. Then someone shared
with me that Christ cursed. Not in
a vile and demeaning way and
certainly not in the intent-to-
shock-and-scandalize way of graf-
fiti or contemporary cinema, but
rather as a word of warning to all
who choose to live in opposition
to God's way.
The Bible cleans it up in the
translation to English "woe to
you". Jesus not only conferred on
His hearers blessings, but also
pronounced upon them woes.
Please note that Jesus does not
wish these woes upon people


who are disobedient to God, nor
does He cause the woe in the pro-
nouncing of it, but He simply
announces that their disobedi-
ence results in the woes.
I fully believe that Jesus wants
nothing more than to have those
who live in woe to begin living in
blessedness. He wants this trans-
formation so much that He goes
to the cross to help make it hap-
pen. God wants us to be blessed.
God wants salvation for all. And
that's the important message that
many churches emphasize.
I have, however, worshipped
in places where the message was
based not on the promise of bless-
ing but on the promise of damna-
tion. Let me share that I much pre-
fer being blessed to being


damned. Nonetheless, the differ-
ence between the church that
preaches blessing and the church
that preaches woe is not really all
that much. One wants to love us
into heaven and one wants to
scare us out of hell. Blessings and
woes, woes and blessings.
I grew up knowing blessings. A
loving family consistently reaf-
firmed that I was loved. Good
teachers consistently exposed me
to powerful ideas and planted
seeds of success and happiness.
My church brought me comfort in
abundance. I enjoy blessings, and
I preach blessings, but I also rec-
ognize there comes a time for
challenges.
We are very good at saying yes
to all that is good and beautiful


and gentle and loving and kind
and nice, but what do we reject?
To what do we say, "NO!"?
The early Christians were per-
secuted not so much for what they
believed (Jesus Christ is Lord) but
for what they refused to believe
(Caesar is Lord). We pastors are
distinguished not only by what we
graciously support, but also by
what we condemn. If all that we
preach only seeks to make peace
with hearers, then we need to
check ourselves to see if we are
being faithful to the gospel.
Proclaiming blessings is not
bad, but we also need to recog-
nize the woes. There is graffiti on
the walls of this school of life, and
we need to be cognizant of the
woes as well as the blessings.

Can Christians do without denominations?


By Jackie Miller
First Christian
Church, Clewiston
To what denomination did
Peter, James, John, the 3000 on
Pentecost (Acts 2:38-47), Cor-
nelius, the Ethiopian eunch,
Lydia, the Corinthians and the
Philippian jailer belong (as well
as every else we read about in
the book of Acts)? The answer,
they belonged to none! They
were simply members of the
body of Christ, which is the
Lord's church (Eph. 1:22, 23;
Colossians 1:18; 24), yet they
were not members of any
denomination as we know them
today (Eph. 4:4-6). All who were
saved became members of this
body (Eph. 5:23), the church, by
virtue of the fact that the Lord
added them to it (Acts 2:47). Yet
they belonged to no denomina-
tion. They had been delivered


from the "power of darkness," or
the world, and were now trans-
lated into the "kingdom of God's
dear Son," which is the church
(Colossians 1:13, 14, 18), but
they were not members of any
denominational church. They
had been called into ONE BODY
(Colossians 3:15).
Just so today, if a sinner
believes in Christ, and is bap-
tized, just as the 3,000 on Pente-
cost were, the eunuch, Lydia,
etc., such would make this per-
son simply a CHRISTIAN, but
nothing more (Mark 16:16; Acts
2:36-41, 8:35-39; 16:14, 15, 16:30,
34, Romans 6:3-4; Galatians 3:26-
27). This would not make him a
member of any denomination.
And if a great number should do
this, would they not have the
same status?
Should this number come
together on the first day of the

week to worship, Acts 20:7, iden-
tify themselves simply by the
name of Christ as did the apos-
tles and early Christians, accept
and teach the Bible as their only
rule of faith and practice, have
such leaders to serve as the Bible
authorizes, and believe and
observe the same teachings in
the same way as the apostles and
early Christians did, and as are
set forth in the Bible, would they
not simply be the Lord's church
without being a denomination.
We believe this is the position
taught in the Bible and that all of
us should take. The Bible only
makes only New Testament
Christians, no more and not less,
and as Christians we are mem-
bers of the New Testament
church, and that alone! If upon
repenting and being baptized
the Lord adds us to His church,
like in the first century, why be


joined to anything else? With the
possession of the Word of God
in its entirety, why think that we
call ourselves by denomination-
al names? We believe in Christ.
He is our creed, and we do what
He says. Consequently the New
Testament is our only rule of
faith and doctrine (no man-
made creeds).
Does this sound good to you?
Does it sound too good to be
true? Most people will say that
they actually believe that this is
the way it should be, but getting
them to implement it is another
thing. Really, it is not a matter of
opinion or optional. Christ pur-
chased the church with His own
blood (Acts 20:28). The church
belongs to him. This is a very
serious matter, and it is of the
utmost importance that we lis-
ten and do what He says (John
12:48).

A bull looks out from the chute waiting for his rider Satur-
day, March 12, at the Xtreme Bulls competition in Brighton.
These bulls are selected because of their power and con-
sistent performance.


Marcus Michaelis from Idaho wears head and face protection
when riding. He settles down on the bull and readies himself for
eight seconds of gut-wrenching terror, hoping to be in the
money at the Xtreme Bulls competition in Brighton on March 10.


Jake Wade, 23, nicknamed "Snake" for his ability to slither
himself into the perfect position world-class bulls, rigs a bull
in the chute the night of March 12, at the Xtreme Bulls com-
petition in Brighton. Riders bring and put on their own rig-
ging before mounting their bulls for their eight-second ride.


Florida gets taste of Extreme Bulls


Cooper Klanngiesser grips the hand-strap woven into his rig-
ging as he prepares for the bull to explode from the chute at
the Xtreme Bells competition in Brighton on March 10.

Rodeo "clowns" are top athletes themselves, at time throw-
ing themselves between an angry, charging bull and a fallen
rider. Actually known as bullfighters and barrel men, their job
is cowboy protection. Here veteran PRCA clown and barrel
man Bryan Rodriguez, 35, waits and watches for the nod
from the cowboy, telling the man on the gate to let 'er rip.

and the riders know and care for
their own rigging. Rigging and
the solidly padded black protec-
tive vests all riders wear give the
riders a fighting chance against
the massive animals, chosen for
their misanthropic natures.
No fewer than 60 riders came
to compete in this event and also
in the Speckled Perch Rodeo in
Okeechobee. From Nevada,
Washington, Idaho, Arizona,
Wisconsin, Texas and Mississip-
pi they traveled.
Cody Hancock, from Arizona,
a 31-year-old who took it all in
2000 will ride, as will 2006 World
Champion 23 year old B.J. Schu-
macher from Wisconsin. The
trio of top riders is rounded out
by Zeb Lanham, 2006 Extreme
Bulls champion.
Not to be forgotten, the funny
men in the ring, bullfighters are
a bull rider's best friend. The
bullfighter's number one job is
to protect a fallen bull rider from
a rampaging bull, they often
throwtheir bodies between the
bull and the bull rider. Barrel
men also play an important role
in cowboy protection. They
often help to lure a bull away
from a cowboy. But that's not a

barrel man's only job. He's also
there to entertain the crowd dur-
ing breaks in the action.
Clowns, much like barrel
men, entertain the crowd during
breaks in the rodeo, but they
don't play a role in cowboy pro-
tection.
The tension down at the
chutes went from almost non-
existent to palpable when the
waiting riders slid down onto
their bulls. The bulls, brought to
Florida for the event by five live-
stock contractors, included 2006
Bull of the Year, Biloxi Blues,
unridden in 18 attempts and the
bull, Southwick. Bulls are pro-
vided by stock contractors, prob-
ably the most overlooked people
in the production of a successful
rodeo.
The stock contractors breed
livestock and load animals for
the haul to the next rodeo. Their
main task is ensuring that the
four-legged athletes of profes-
sional rodeo are healthy, well-
fed, properly cared for and fit to
perform. And while the cow-
boys get most of the recognition,
the bucking bulls and horses at
PRCA rodeos play a vital role in
the success of the contestant. In
roughstock events, half the cow-
boy's score comes from the ani-
mal's ability to buck with power
and consistency. The value of
top bulls can reach $30,000, and
a first-rate bucking horse can sell
for more than $15,000.
Veteran rider, Cody Hancock
took the top money Saturday.
After being sidelined by an
injury last year, Cody came back
into the money with $15,058 for
the night followed by Bryan
Richardson with $9,559, Bobby
Welsh with $6,655 and Jimmy
Crosby with $6,147.

refund


available
TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Public Service Commission (PSC)
is encouraging taxpayers to take
advantage of a one-time-only tele-
phone tax refund. This tax season,
most taxpayers will easily qualify
for a standard telephone excise tax
refund, ranging from $30 to $60.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
reports more than 30 percent of
early filers in Florida have not
requested the refund, including
many people using tax preparers.
The federal government
stopped collecting the long-dis-
tance excise tax last August after
several federal court decisions
ruled the tax does not apply to
long-distance service as it is billed
today. Federal officials authorized a
one-time refund of the federal
excise tax collected on service
billed during the previous 41
months, stretching from the begin-
ning of March 2003 to the end of
July 2006. The tax continues to
apply to local-only phone service.
To make the refund easier to fig-
ure, the federal government estab-
lished a standard refund amount,
based on personal exemptions,
ranging from $30 to $60. If taxpay-
ers have phone bills and other
records, they can request the actual
amount of excise tax paid. Taxpay-
ers only have to fill out one line on
their return, and they don't need to
present proof to the IRS.

cannot get to you in time. The 30
feet immediately surrounding your

Denna Scantland founded the Cowboys Church in Palmdale in
2001. Services are held the second Thursday evening of each
month at the local clubhouse. Ministers are invited to visit and
preach. Palmdale is a rural community in Glades County.

The Palmdale Volunteer Fire
Department asked Hand in Hand
Ministries to help out.
Ms. Scantland and ministry
volunteers delivered those neces-
sities. Some residents had to stay.
at the clubhouse and they relied
on the food and charity offered by
the volunteers.
Helping isn't always a simple
thing to do.
Ms. Scantland often gets dona-
tions of food and clothing from a
nearby charity in Lake Placid
which is called Manna Ministries.
She accepts and retrieves the food
and clothes in her 1983 station
wagon, which does not have a
spare tire on board. But Denna
doesn't worry because she
believes God takes care of big


things and little things.
She stores the food in her
home freezer and cabinets, and
the clothes are passed out in give-
away programs at local churches.
Whenever a local resident has a
crisis they can go to Denna when
they are too sick or unable to trav-
el to the store.
There is no charge for food or
clothing.
Ms. Scantland is available to do
on-the-spot prayers for those who
are troubled, or in trouble. You
only have to ask, she said.
Hand in Hand Ministries and
the Cowboys Church would like
to thank Toys for Tots, Manna
Ministries of Lake Placid and
numerous volunteers for their
donations and good works.

Scantland can be reached at (863)

and is looking forward to the

commissioners.
The 10th Street traffic light was
another topic discussed by city
council members.
The light's effectiveness has
been a continuing issue for the
Community Traffic Safety Team,
the school district and the city.
The main reason for concern is
that the light is not fully function-
al.
Most of the time it is a yellow
flashing light, but during the start
and end of school it switches to a
fully functional light that flashes
green, yellow and red.


Generally, drivers become pro-
grammed to it as a flashing light,
safety officials said, and some
near-misses happen when it
changes over.
The city and the school district
have advised that it should remain
as just a yellow flashing light.
Both wish to keep the light and do
not want it removed.
Officials seemed to agree that
the switch to a periodic function
as a green-yellow-red light should
be discontinued.
However, someday in the
future there will be the option to
alter it into a fully functional light
if traffic demands call for it.
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT), the city
and the community traffic safety
team will continue working on
the issue until it is resolved.

Forestry updates Crisis


The outlook for spring weather
was updated on Wednesday,
March 7, by Florida Division of
Forestry (DOF) meteorologist. The
forecast now calls for a drier than
normal spring instead of wetter
than normal conditions originally
expected.
With local conditions already
very dry, this increases the expecta-
tions of above normal wildfire
activity. Drier conditions mean that
if wildfires start they can grow
quickly, become more intense, and
be more difficult to suppress.
This time of year, wildfires are
started by people. People can pre-
vent wildfire starts by being careful
any time they are working with fire
or any type of machinery or equip-
ment that can generate sparks or
heat.


Continued From Page 1
So the plan now is to begin
the work on less than half of the
road and hope that the rest of
the funding will somehow mate-
rialize the county does not
have money to complete it.
"If you go there, you better be
paying attention to how you're
driving," said the manager.
A Difficult
Proposition
Glades County, according to
Census figures, is one of the
poorest counties in the state.
It pales in comparison to
neighboring Hendry, or Okee-
chobee, or Lee counties.
The average income for
Glades County residents is low -
too low, Mr. Taylor said.
The truth, the manager said
as he pointed to a line in a book
on his table containing the infor-
mation, is that "you can sweep
the floors and make more than
that. Whoever spoke for these
guys?" Mr. Taylor said.
There are some people in
Glades County, perhaps a minor-
ity of its population, who live
very comfortably, Mr. Taylor
said. A larger portion lives in rel-
ative poverty.
"You get two classes of socie-
ty: upper class and lower class.
There are a lot of people who
took care of themselves, 'I got
mine, the hell with you'," said
the manager.
A snapshot of the area quickly
reveals a basic fact, Mr. Taylor
said, that the county is divided by
the haves and have-nots, and
there is a wide gap between the
two. He would like to see that
gap narrowed.
The imbalance desperately
needs it counter-balance, he
said.
A short way out
Historically, Glades County
has always struggled and there
never has been a good, clear
way of climbing out of the rut,
leaders said.
Big business has largely over-
looked the area west of Lake
Okeechobee, and comprehen-
sive plans to change the face of it
are stalled by a lack of funds.
The only real answer, Mr. Tay-
lor said, is FPL's much-criticized
proposal to build a nearly $3 bil-
lion power plant squarely in
Glades County.
In one sudden strike, the
county is poised to change more
in just a few years alone than the
whole of several recent decades
combined.
Sitting at a hard wooden desk
in his office, Mr. Taylor suddenly
points so hard at the thick vol-
ume that the sound of its force is
clear in the small hall space out-
side he is for the power plant.
A progressing

problem
As it stands, taking the need-
ed roadwork as just one of the
issues confronted by a county
with so little funding infrastruc-
ture desperately warranting
attention throughout the county
- there are many complaints, but
no real solutions to the prob-
lems.
Residents are met with a sym-
pathetic ear, but not much more
Mr. Taylor said.
"We don't have money," the
manager said. "We don't have
money to spend on county roads
except for the little dribblings
that come from FDOT (Florida
Department of Transportation)."
One of the indicators of the
county's poverty is its fire depart-
ment, Mr. Taylor said an all-
volunteer fire department with-
out one paid worker. Life is
difficult in Glades County and
the department is one sign of it,
he said.
Response time is slower for
emergency workers in Glades
County, because most volun-
teers have full-time jobs that
don't allow them to be sitting in
a fire station waiting to field
calls.
"The response time is slow-
er," said the manager. "Why?
They're working at the hardware
store. They don't just jump
down a pole."
According to the manager,
the equipment in use by the fire
department is decades old, with

"pai d,


a lot of the equipment going
back 20 or 30 years some as
much as 40 years back.
Acquisition for the depart-
ment then becomes a creative
venture.
"They're buying .the equip-
ment with bake sales and fish
fries," added Mr. Taylor. "These
are good people. If we didn't
have them, know what we'd
have? Nada."
At times, the volunteers have
had to rely on their wits and their
motivation to become involved
rather than on good equipment
to help residents.
"A person once got stuck on a
sandbar on the lake. One of the
commissioners finds this guy
with GPS in the middle of the
night, throws a rope around him
and pulls him off the sandbar -
he pulls him back. The compas-
sion is there," said Mr. Taylor.
"The money isn't."
The numbers
Glades County's operating
budget last year was just over
$20 million, the county manager
said. Of that, more than half was
the result of grants the county
and its lobbyists were able to
bring back from the state and the
federal governments.
The county has had its mill-
age rate set at 10 mills for the last
few years 10 mills being the
state cap and county officials
say it is still not enough to pro-
vide the services that residents
need.
Recreational facilities, infra-
structure improvements, monies
available for schools and local
law enforcement agencies and
other emergency workers are all
spread across the county, and
each department is forced to cut
back to survive.
The taxes most other coun-
ties depend on is quite small for
this county, Mr. Taylor said.
According to the manager, close
to 70 percent of all homes in
Glades County are mobile
homes.
County officials say the power
plant could provide up to $21
million each year to the county,
with even more money being
pumped into the school system
- money that can be used to
improve what traditionally has
been left neglected.
The sell
Soon after plans to locate the
power plant in Glades County
were announced by Larry
Hilton, the county's community
development director, at a meet-
ing in 2006, the power plant has
come under fire by its oppo-
nents.
The plans have drawn wide
criticism from environmental

groups who say the plant and
the pollution it will cause will
greatly harm Glades County's
natural surroundings. Mercury
has been one of the biggest con-
cerns, and environmentalists say
Glades County shouldn't have to
sit by and watch its land nega-
tively affected with the promise
of large tax offshoots as an
almost impossible to resist
temptation for leaders.
If there is a great need for
energy production, then there
are other, safer ways of accom-
plishing this, the groups say.
They have promised to fight
the proposal all the way.
At times the discussion on the
power plant has seemed
focused entirely on the negative,
and Mr. Taylor deals with it on a
weekly basis.
"It's every hour of every day,"
the manager said of the criti-
cisms he hears opponents mak-
ing of the plans. "It's very insult-
ing. It says you are not doing
your job. These people don't
want to listen to science. They
want to listen to their own sci-
ence."
He is offended that the char-
acterization of him in some sec-
tors of the public is of an admin-
istrator who recommended the
plant without first considering its
drawbacks.
Of course he did, he said.
Long before any details were
concrete, he decided he needed
to know the pros and cons in
and out before he could take a
position either way.
"My first thought was: it
sounds good, but I want to know
if it can hurt somebody," the
manager said.
He felt comfortable enough
with the proposition to bring it
before residents and take the
stance that it would be over-
whelmingly good for the county.
"Point blank," Mr. Taylor said.
"If someone were to provide me
undisputable evidence today
that this is poisonous, I am
against this. The power plant is
not poisonous to the commfini-
ty. It's a Godsend."
The final outcome
Whether or not the plant
becomes a reality isn't a matter
to be determined by the county
anymore.
A judge will listen to four
weeks of testimony in a public.
hearing at the end of September,
the beginning of October. He
will summarize his findings and
the report will be issued to the
state for final approval.
The final verdict will come in
December, or perhaps as late as
the spring of 2008 if there is a
need to revisit any of the infor-
mation or to accommodate

schedules.
In the meantime, the county's
top official will continue defend-
ing the need for the plant.
FPL and county officials insist
the plant is not your typical
plant, it operates far more effi-
ciently than the majority of other
power plants in the United States
today, the manager said. Ver-
sions of it can be found in Japan
and other foreign countries.
If it's clean for them, it should
be clean enough for Glades
County, Mr. Taylor said.
In any event, the plant will be
located somewhere in South
Florida, leaders argue.
"There're 1,000 people com-
ing each day to Florida," Mr.
Hilton said. "This plant is going
to go somewhere in South Flori-
da. What better county than
this?"
Throughout the process, the
county kept a wary eye on the
project.
"There's a country saying that
goes, 'Catch 'em short,' which
means catch them in a lie," said
Mr. Taylor. "And we have never
caught them (FPL) in a lie."
When FPL announced it
would like to move to Glades
County, officials were ecstatic
that the company, which had
also had meetings with officials
in Hendry and Okeechobee
counties, had selected Glades
County as its final choice.
"We didn't get this because
nobody else wanted it," said Mr.
Taylor.
FPL, though, had had very
public discussions with St. Lucie
County that ended with that
county voting not to pursue any
more dealings with FPL regard-
ing a power plant in the area.
So far, most in the community
have been accepting of the idea,
the manager said, and by his
own estimate the majority are in
agreement that the county will
only benefit from the plant.
"My guess is that 85 to 90 per-
cent of the people are for the
plant," said Mr. Taylor. "Those
who are against it are very verbal
and well-financed."
Mr. Taylor goes so far as to say
that the everyman in the county
supports it because he under-
stand the county has "been the
fishing hole where the birds
have come" to prey.
About his critics, the manager
said, "They don't like what they
hear, but it's the truth."
But the larger portion of his
constituents has listened, he
said, except their voices aren't
heard as loudly.
"They don't write letters to
the editor," said Mr. Taylor.
