Unwanted dog thrown away


Concerned officers:
If you cannot care
for a pet, call

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Glades
County Animal Control and the
Caloosa Humane Society report
that on March 27, a young dog
was found dead and tangled
within the branches of pepper


trees along Riverside Drive next
to the Caloosahatchee River
bank.
A photo of it showed the
gruesome details of the ani-
mal's death a scene unfamiliar
to most people, and to the
untrained eye, it seemed as
though the dog had been
abused or mistreated.
Animal control officer, David
Cline has come across many
animals that are abandoned,
lost, neglected or mistreated. He


also is responsible for collecting
the dead ones. He did not find
any signs of foul play on the
remains, though what he
believes about the incident is
disturbing.
"It was a dog somebody did-
n't want anymore, and they
meant to throw it into the river,
only it ended up in the tree and
they left it there to die," Mr.
Cline said.
Suzanne Bonnell, director of
Caloosa Humane Society, con-

Jeff Harrod of Vanishing Species in Palmdale hugs the new addition to the wildlife cen-
ter. This cub and its sibling were abandoned by the mother. Mr. Harrod cares for them
as well as other displaced animals. Animals from Vanishing Species were on display at
the Big O Bird Festival in Moore Haven.


Bird watchers and tourists stalk wildlife and take photos while on a tour at the Big O
Bird Festival in Glades County. The Glades area has many habitats that native and
migrating birds seek. Contact Glades County Economic Development Council 946-

cluded that it did not appear
that the white dog was wound-
ed, scarred or starved. However,
she also believes this dog was
thrown away by the owners
who no longer wished to care
for it. Ms. Bonnell described
how she saw the dog in the tree
with its front legs pinned up
under its chest, wedged into the
forks of the branches.
"This dog was thrown in
there by a person as a means of
disposal," Ms. Bonnell said.


No one knows for certain if
the dog was alive, or already
dead when it was thrown into
the pepper trees.
It is a precautionary tale for
other would-be owners who
would take the same route.
David Cline and Suzanne
Bonnell want residents to know
that this does not have to hap-
pen to an unwanted animal.

MH City Council


considers traffic


light, water park


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The
Moore Haven City Council met
April 3 and discussed the 10th
Street traffic light, water park
bids and the final draft of the
zoning ordinance.
The dilemma over the 10th
Street traffic light has been
debated for many months. It
has been a recurring subject
for the city, school district and
-the community traffic safety
team. There is a flashing light,
but it is timed to be fully func-
tional only when school starts
and ends leading to drivers
become confused at seeing
the light function at one point
during the day and only blink
at others.


Mike Jones, the city's direc-
tor of public works, composed
a letter to the council mem-
bers informing them of his
talks with Florida Department
of Transportation operations
in LaBelle regarding the situa-
tion.
Mr. Jones recommended to
the council that there be an
option to "keep the traffic sig-
nal as is, but continue to press
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) to
allow for a full-time traffic sig-
nal operation."
There are differing opinions
about what should be done
with one of the few traffic
lights in the city.
The city and the school dis-

Scholarship group


seeks more funds


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY Most
people use the word educa-
tion to mean the purposeful
teaching and learning provid-
ed in schools and other formal
institutions of education.
Schools as specialized institu-
tions appeared some 4,000.
years ago (World Book).
Today, institutions of higher
learning, colleges and univer-
sities, come at such high
prices, it's fairly safe to say that
only a miniscule number of
students will ever get through
college on their own initiative.
Consequently, those students


. who have excelled in high
school generally deserve
financial help in order to pur-
sue their own educational
goals.
It is with that intent that the
Moore Haven High School
Scholarship Foundation Inc.
was formed in 2001. The
scholarships are awarded to
senior scholars graduating
from Moore Haven High
School each year. This year's
valedictorian will receive
$3,000 each year for four years
and there will also be graduat-
ing Senior Scholarships as
well as Matching Scholarships.

Third grade has fun


learning about space


Wonderful projects
adorn the hallway

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The third
grade teaching staff at Moore
Haven Elementary School
organized a hands-on project
for their students during the
study of space science. Parents
were encouraged to help, too.
A total of 58 solar system
projects adorned the hallway
with incredible color and cre-
ativity. The sight of them
inspired the viewer to wonder
about the universe.
Sarah Williams, Noel Good-
win and Lesle Pryor are the
third grade teachers who
encouraged parents and stu-
dents to work as equal partners
at home.


The teachers said that any-
thing could be used to make
the models of the solar system,
and creativity was strongly sug-
gested.
The students and parents
must have taken their advice
for indeed almost every kind of
art medium and household
and sporting goods item was
used. The junk drawer from
the kitchen probably came in
handy, too.
By looking at the projects
the viewer could tell that a lot
of painstaking work and pre-
cious time was needed to com-
plete the project. The variety of
presentations included charts,
dioramas, mobiles, models
and other three dimensional
displays.
Melanie Williams, a student
in Ms. Pryor's class, comment-

Three students who know their planets. Julie Cook, left, Melany Williams, center, and
Thomas Bearden were three of the 58 students who completed solar system projects with
their parents' partnership. All the science displays were used to decorate the third grade
hallway at Moore Haven Elementary School.

Wildlife prepares for another Spring


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
One more exquisite time.
Even if summer weather is at its
worst this year, chances are we'll
have this spring and that right
soon. Earth is opening sleepy
eyes; she is awakening and
showing a million shades of glis-
tering green in every direction.
Of all the words that have
ever been written or said, or
even felt about this wondrous
time, perhaps it's best in the
Song of Solomon: "...for lo, the
winter is past, the rains are over
and gone, leaves and flowers
appear on the earth, the time of
the singing of birds is come and
the voice of the turtle is heard in
our land."
...The singing of birds: min-
utes before first light the song
birds begin, softly at first, then
louder and louder as light spills
over the land. It's difficult if not
impossible to identify their songs
since they sound as if they're try-
ing to out-sing each other!
The Jittle tweety birds fly
around like bees while the
towhees flit and streak in and
out the palmetto islands, almost
any growth near the ground, the
wrens chase each other up and
down the cabbage palm trunk
then all of a sudden one of them
will let go an incomparable
arpeggio and in a split second
there'll be a melodious
response. No bird, big or little,
sings a more romantic song!


.'

* Z *.


Spring: A time of the singing of the birds and the voice of the turtle.


And those brilliant red flashes
in and out the shrubbery and up
and down the vines there's no
such thing as mistaken identity.
Cardinals! Dozens of them all
at one time. And there can be no
doubt that when the flickers
begin their raucous callings, we
know that full-light has spilled
out over the land.
This land, our land -
whether it's here in this almost
tropical region, a remote little


space on a mountaintop, or just
a little place at the end of the
road with a tree or two and a
patch of blue. Land is sacred and
all life that grows from it.
Someone once said: I kneel
to the earth for comfort, for
strength, for beauty I cannot find
elsewhere. There is an over-
whelming sense of thankfulness
for every small green leaf, every
promise that's now budding.
Perhaps it is enough for this one


chosen brief moment, at this
truly magical April time, to stop
and listen to the "singing of the
birds and the voice of the turtle."
And if need be, we'll worry
about summer storms and the
like when the time comes; After
all, there may be something to
burying one's head in the sand
at times, 'specially when spring
is within hollerin' distance.
But this year, we can and do
pray, and holler, for rain.


Traffic safety team looking for chairperson


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The Glades
County community safety team,
whose purpose is finding solutions
to hazards and crashes and the
safety of pedestrians, is looking for
a new chairperson to initiate its reg-
ular meetings.
The team met April 5 to discuss
this new possibility.
According to the members of
the team, the chairperson must be
a county resident and be willing to
become involved with the team
and help find way to keep commu-
nity traffic at a safe level. Since its
inception, the team has had posi-
tive, engaging discussions centered


around keeping all residents safe
on local roads.
The safety issues include pedes-
trian and bicycle safety, teen driv-
ers, DUI, motorcycles, child safety
restraints and seat belts for all
occupants.
The team meets every first
Thursday of the month, and invites
the public and any official to attend
and provide input. They meet at
the public library.
In other news, Captain Jeffer-
son Hill reported on county traffic
citations for the month of March. In
the entire county there were 492
citations issued and 359 of those
were in the city of Moore Haven.
Capt. Hill explained that most of


these were for speeding across the
bridge at the entrance to town.
Sergeant Kimberly Hill is the
vice chair for the team. She organ-
ized the Safety Fair of March 17. She
was pleased so many people vol-
unteered to help.
"Thank you, thankyou for com-
ing out to the Safety Fair," she said
during the meeting.
Debra Stallings, the Florida
Department of Transportation
coordinator for the safety team,
talked about an upcoming pro-
gram called "Be Tire Smart Play
Your Part." The public is invited to
participate April22 to 27.
This program informs vehicle
owners on proper tire mainte-


nance and advocates the correct
inflation pressure in tires. Under-
inflation can lead to tire failure
which will cause accidents. Other
tire maintenance promoted in the
program are alignment, rotation
and tread check.
Debra Stallings and Sergeant
Kimberly Hill will be at the meet-
ings to help the new chairperson
when one is found. They will be
able to explain the duties to inter-
ested residents.
For more information about the
safety team, or to learn more about
the open position, call Sgt. Hill at
946-1600 or Ms. Stallings at (863)
519-2347.

Air Force Band to play Belle Glade

TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Public Service Commission
(PSC) has directed Verizon Flori-
da LLC (Verizon) to refund
approximately $63,000 to the
company's customers. Accord-
ing to the results of a recent PSC
service quality inspection, Veri-
zon failed to issue rebates to
thousands of qualified cus-
tomers between June 1, 2005,
and Feb. 7, 2007.
"The Commission regularly
conducts comprehensive serv-
ice quality inspections of Flori-
da's regulated telecommunica-
tions carriers to ensure
ratepayers are receiving safe,
affordable, and reliable service,"
said PSC Chairman Lisa Polak
Edgar. "PSC staff work diligently
to identify areas of concern for
consumers and guide service
providers appropriately."
As a part of the PSC service
quality evaluation program, staff
discovered that Verizon did not
automatically issue rebates to
customers who experienced
more than 24 hours of interrupt-
ed service. Verizon's subsequent
investigation revealed a number
of factors contributed to the
missed rebates, including pro-
gramming and human errors.
At the PSC's direction, Veri-
zon has corrected the software
errors and retrained its employ-
ees. Commissioners today
approved the company's refund
proposal, which is estimated to
take six months to complete.
Verizon will begin issuing the
credits during the first billing
cycle in April 2007. Based on the
average credit per customer,
Verizon estimates the total
refund amount to be approxi-
mately $63,000. Verizon will
report the actual total of the
rebates in its final report to be

Clewiston Middle
School invites
U.S. Air Force band

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE It isn't every
day that one of the best sym-
phonic bands in the country
plays in the Glades. Needless to
say, organizers of the concert are
hopeful that local residents will
come out this Saturday to sup-
port the event.
When Luke Hall, Clewiston
Middle School's band director,
first heard that the U.S. Air Force
Band had a tour scheduled in the
South Florida area, on a whim
he decided he'd try his chances
at calling the organization and
seeing whether they would be
interested in playing in Clewis-
ton or Belle Glade for free -
something that seemed like a
long-shot at first.


"It's wonderful. It's a free opportunity for people
to see the finesse of the band, their magnitude
and skill. It shouldn't be missed."
Laura Smith,
Clewiston band boosters


When the Air Force Band
called back to say they were
interested, Luke Hall was ecstat-
ic.
"I was very excited about it,"
remembered Mr. Hall. "This is
one of the world's premier sym-
phonic bands. It's a great oppor-
tunity."
The band's 35-voice choir
and presidential honor guard
will be playing at a concert to be
held at Glades Central Commu-
nity High School's gymnasium.
The doors are scheduled to open
at 3 p.m,, while the actual con-
cert is slated to begin at 4 p.m.
According to Mr. Hall, the per-
formance is about two hours in


length, with the band perform-
ing everything from contempo-
rary movie music, to pops
music, to classical a wide vari-
ety of music.
For Mr. Hall, whose own stu-
dents will attend the perform-
ance, the concert will serve to
show the kids what they can
accomplish if they put their
minds to it.
"These are the cream of the
crop musicians, they're in regu-
lar demand as performers," said
Mr. Hall. "My kids are coming
out en masse."
The Air Force Band is one of
the five major branches of sym-
phonic bands associated with

the various branches of the mili-
tary, with the U.S. Marine Band
being another one of the more
famous of the groups.
Having the Air Force Band
play locally, Mr. Hall said, is
something that as many resi-
dents as possible should take
advantage of. Currently, only a
fraction of the available tickets
have been requested by resi-
dents from throughout the lake
region Mr. Hall hopes that
many more will secure their tick-
ets before or just prior to the
show.
Mr. Hall is also appreciative of
Glades Central High School's
band director, who helped to
allow the event to take place at
the school possible. According
to Mr. Hall, the focus from the
beginning was to involve local
high school programs to take
part in the event.
Tickets are available at
Clewiston Middle School leading
up to the day of the event, with
tickets made available during the
actual day of the event. Tickets
are free.
Laura Smith, with the Clewis-
ton band boosters, agrees that
the show will be one to look for-
ward to.
"It's wonderful," said Ms.
Smith. "It's a free opportunity for
people to see the finesse of the
band, their magnitude and skill.
It shouldn't be missed."
If the concert is well-attend-
ed, organizers say there is a pos-
sibility that the band could make
a return in the future, as well as
other military bands, including
the coast guard, which is now
finalizing its schedule for next
year, including tours in South
Florida.

"Neighbors Working for Neighbors"

April 5, 2007
Office of the Governor
The Capitol
Tallahassee, FL 32399-0001

Dear Governor Crist:
On behalf of the Board of Trustees of Glades Electric Cooperative headquartered in Moore Haven, Florida, I am writing this letter to express
our support for the approval of FPL's proposed Glades Power Park coal project. Like you, we are Florida residents who value our state's unique
and natural beauty, and we work hard in our operations to protect its natural resources. As general manager of a fast growing, non-profit electric
distribution cooperative, I also am convinced that we need a reliable, affordable supply of electric energy to meet Florida's economic needs. The
FPL project will do both.

Glades County is a rural county that needs clean industry, good jobs, and tax revenues. Florida's environmental regulations are some of the
strictest in the country. The FPL project will use one of the most efficient, clean pulverized coal- technologies available as well as state of the art
in pollution control. This combination will insure that it will meet or exceed our stringent environmental requirements and therefore protect
Glades County, the Everglades, and the rest of Florida. This project will also bring hundreds of much needed permanent and construction jobs
to Glades County that will provide opportunity to our residents and their children and significantly increase the tax revenues that can be used
to build schools and make other sorely needed improvements that are afforded more affluent counties.

FPL's project will benefit Florida by supplying additional generating capacity necessary to meet the ever increasing demand for electric energy
driven by our population growth and customer use. It will also benefit the entire state by increasing the diversity of Florida's fuel portfolio and
reducing our reliance on natural gas which, as we have learned, becomes extremely vulnerable when hurricane storms affect the Gulf of Mexico.
Having an additional electric generating facility that will be able to store several months of fuel as opposed to hours, will greatly benefit Florida's
recovery efforts when these disasters strike. Additionally, this project will help reduce our dependence on foreign supplies of energy.
I realize there has been a great deal of discussion concerning whether or not the FPL project is right for Florida. Glades Electric Cooperative
relies on Seminole Electric Cooperative to provide us wholesale power. As a member of Seminole's Board of Trustees, I recently reviewed the
results of a comprehensive review of available generating technologies and fuels before our Board approved the addition of a third coal unit. I
was pleased to know that FPL is proposing essentially the same technology and pollution control equipment as Seminole's proposed coal plant
in Putnam County. I also know that based on Seminole's experience in Putnam County, a well thought out project, using state of the art technology and
the most advanced pollution control equipment will be accepted by the residents, provide numerous benefits, and protect the environment We
believe the FPL project will be as beneficial to Glades County as the Seminole Project is to Putnam County.

For all the above reasons, we strongly support FPL's Glades coal project. I remain...

Sincerely,



L.T. Todd
General Manager and CEO

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, April 12, 2007


David Zechman named CEO



of Glades General Hospital


WEST PALM BEACH The
Health Care District of Palm Beach
County announced last week that
David M. Zechman is the Chief
Executive Officer of Glades General
Hospital in
Belle Glade
effective April
11,2007.
Mr. Zech- --:
man will also ,
participate in
the senior man- -
agement team -
at the Health -
Care District, David
which owns Zechman
and operates
Glades General Hospital, a 73-bed
acute care facility which has been
serving Glades residents since
1946. In addition, Mr. Zechman
will play a key role in the District's
project now underway to construct
a new state-of-the-art regional hos-
pital to serve all the communities in
western Palm Beach County.
"David Zechman brings a
wealth of relevant experience and
commitment to mission from his
25-year career in the health care
field," said C. David Goodlett, Chair
of the Health Care District Board of
Commissioners and Vice President
of Government and Community
Relations for the Sugar Cane Grow-
ers Cooperative of Florida. "His
enthusiasm about the opportunity
will go along way in working with
our dedicated physicians of today


with an eye to supplement addi-
tional high quality doctors."
Most recently, Mr. Zechman
held several executive positions at
Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's
HealthCare system in Louisville,
Kentucky. From 2002 to 2005 Zech-
man served as Chief Executive Offi-
cer of Jewish Hospital Heart and
Lung Institute and Vice President of
Jewish Hospital in Louisville. In
2005 he was promoted to President
of the Jewish Hospital Health Net-
work, a regional network of four
rural hospitals in Kentucky and
Indiana. In his previous position,
Zechman was Vice President of
Cardiovascular Services at St.
Luke's-Shawnee Mission Health
System in Kansas City, Missouri. In
that role he served as Administrator
for the Mid America Heart Institute
and was responsible for adminis-
trative operations and planning for
system cardiac services at the 202-
bed Heart Institute.
"Leading Glades General Hospi-
tal into the future is a tremendous
opportunity," said Mr. Zechman.
"The goal for our new regional
health facility is to provide world
class quality of care and service that
attracts patients and doctors from
our community."
Mr. Zechman earned his B.S.
degree from Miami University in
Oxford, Ohio, and his Master's
Degree in Public Administration,
with an emphasis in health care,
from Cleveland State University. He


is a Certified Health Care Executive
with the American College of
Healthcare Executives.
Glades General Hospital, the
only public hospital in Palm Beach
County, is an acute care facility that
provides a 24-hour physician
staffed ER and a full-range of inpa-
tient and out-patient services.
Since reacquiring Glades General
Hospital in May 2004, the District
has invested $3.5 million dollars in
the latest medical technologies,
including a 16-slice CT scanner, a
Picture Archiving and Communica-
tion System (PACS), and fully elec-
tronic medical records.
"We are proud of the care that is
delivered at Glades General Hospi-
tal each and every day," said
Dwight D. Chenette, the Chief
Executive Officer of the Health Care
District. "David Zechman will build
upon that sense of mission while
providing direction and input to the
retirement of Glades General Hos-
pital and the construction of a new
regional medical center."
The new 70-bed hospital will be
built on a centrally-located 50-acre
campus at the intersection of Hook-
er Highway and U.S. 441, the cross-
roads of the Glades communities.
The new medical facility is seen by
the Health Care District, community
leaders and medical professionals
as a means of providing a more pro-
gressive and integrated health care
delivery system to residents in the
Lake Okeechobee region.

WEST PALM BEACH The
Glades Healthcare Foundation
announced that H. Patricia (Pat)
Lord has become Executive Direc-
tor effective March 13, 2007. The
not-for-profit Foundation was
formed in October 2006 to support
the Health Care District of Palm
Beach County's campaign to build
and operate a new 70-bed state-of-
the-art medical facility serving the
communities in western Palm
Beach County.
As Executive Director, Ms. Lord
is responsible for planning, organ-
izing, and implementing the Foun-
dation's activities and will work in
collaboration with Palm Health-
care Foundation in West Palm
Beach. The Glades Healthcare
Foundation aims to raise $20 mil-
lion in capital funds through chari-
table donations, grants, and other
fundraising activities. Once the
goals of the initial capital campaign
are met, the Foundation will
remain active to support healthcare
needs throughout the Lake Okee-
chobee region. The new hospital,
which will be centrally located at
the crossroads of the Glades on the


southwest corner of Hooker High-
way and U.S. 441, is expected to be
completed within three years.
"Pat knows and has a deep
respect for our communities and
constituencies here in Palm Beach
County," adds Dwight D. Chenette,
Chief Executive
Officer of the
Health Care
District. "She
has just com-
pleted a very
successful
tenure as Direc-
tor of Major f
Gifts for the
Palm Beach Patrcia
Community Lord
College Foun- L
dation, where she helped secure
more than $5 million, in endowed
scholarships, building capital, and
program support." Ms. Lord also
helped to steward a $1 million gift
to support the Countess de Hoernle
Humanities
Building on the Boca Raton
campus of the college.

2007 Seminole Indian 4-H Live-

The Show and Sale was held
Thursday, March 28 and Friday,
March 29 at the Brighton 4-H ,

a lot of time and if the youth do
not spend a lot of time with their
steers it shows in the final
weigh-in. At a whopping 1,277
pounds, Show Judge Zach Con-
lin of Indiantown chose Kailin'

Ready to work Credential Program announced


TALLAHASSEE Lt. Governor
Jeff Kottkamp recently announced
Florida's Ready to Work Program,
which creates a job skill assess-
ment-based training and credential
program for students and adult
learners. The program is adminis-
tered by the Florida Department of
Education and the Agency for
Workforce Innovation. Following a
competitive process, a contract
was awarded to Worldwide Inter-
active Network (WIN) to provide
the program's instructional com-
ponents and assessments.
"Florida must continue to culti-
vate a well-prepared workforce to
respond to the needs of our state's
growing business community,"
said Lt. Governor Kottkamp. "This
program will enable students of all
ages to earn a credential that tells
prospective employers they are
equipped with the skills needed to
enter the workforce and hit the
ground running."
Free-of-charge and completely
voluntary, the Ready to Work Pro-
gram provides participants with an
opportunity to earn a credential
that demonstrates his or her ability
to enter the workforce with the
skills necessary for success. The
program begins with a pre-instruc-
tional assessment to determine an
applicant's mastery of basic work-
force skills. Applicants meeting the
designated mastery levels will earn
the Ready to Work credential.
Those in need of additional prepa-
ration will enroll in self-paced, tuto-
rial coursework for the areas in
which they were not proficient, fol-
lowed by a .post-instructional
assessment. A certificate is issued
upon successful completion of all
WorkKeys assessments.
"I believe that the Ready to
Work Program will prove to be the


most significant workforce devel-
opment initiative in the state's his-
tory because it focuses on real-
world issues of both students and
employers with respect.to work-
force readiness and training," said
Representative Joe Pickens.
The Ready to Work Credential
Program consists of the nationally
recognized ACT WorkKeys sys-.
tem, which measures cognitive
abilities such as applied mathemat-
ics, reading for information, and
locating information. Assessments
measuring these abilities may be
either paper-and-pencil or web-
based, and take about an hour
each to complete. Each assess-
ment is scored on a scale from
three to seven.
To earn Florida's Ready to Work
Credential, applicants must score a
three or above on all three of the
WorkKeys assessments. Appli-
cants can earn the Ready to Work
Credential at one of three levels:
Bronze (minimum score of three
or above on all three assessments),
Silver (minimum score of four or
above on all three assessments) or
Gold (minimum score of five or
above on all three assessments).
"This program brings together
the entire spectrum of the educa-
tion community from K-12 public
education to community colleges
to career-technical education cen-
ters to help Florida job seekers -
whether they are looking for their
first job or a new job obtain the
skills employers are looking for in
an employee," said Education
Commissioner Jeanine Blomberg.
"Through the Ready to Work
program, we are working to ensure
that people throughout the state
are truly 'ready to work'," said
Agency for Workforce Innovation
Director Monesia Brown. "We


view education and workforce
skills development at all levels as an
investment in the future of Florida's
economy, and we could not be
more thrilled with our partnership
with DOE or the support we have
received from Gov. Crist and Lt.
Gov. Kottkamp." The program will
be available at participating public
schools, community colleges, area
technical centers, one-stop career
centers, vocational rehabilitation
centers, Department of Juvenile
Justice programs and regional edu-
cation consortia. Currently, there
are 20 sites throughout the state
where applicants can take the
WorkKeys assessments. Nearly
10,000 Floridians who have already
taken the WorkKeys assessments
and achieved scores of three or
above on each assessment will be
"grandfathered" into the Ready to
Work Credential Program, and will
receive a certificate of completion
this month.
"Manufacturers have thousands
of jobs open in Florida at all levels.
We desperately need workers who
can quickly be assimilated into our
manufacturing careers to produce
the products that today's market
place demands," said Manufactur-
ers Association of Florida Executive
Director Nancy Stephens.
"WorkKeys will help us qualify
incoming workers and upgrade
existing workers' skills. The 'win-
win' is that workers will make high-
er salaries, they will perform at
higher levels, and Florida will
increase its competitive manufac-
turing position."

Credential Program, visit

Students


should 'Go


Higher'
TALLAHASSEE Education
Commissioner Jeanine Blomberg
announced recently the launch of
a new campaign, "Go Higher-
Get Accepted," to help high school
seniors enroll at a community col-
lege in Florida before graduation.
"It is vitally important for stu-
dents to continue their education
after high school," said Commis-
sioner Blomberg. "Nearly 90 per-
cent of students say they want to
pursue more education after grad-
uation, but only half of them do.
This campaign helps students
understand their options and
achieve their goals."
The Florida Department of Edu-
cation and FACTS.org, Florida's
online student advising system, are
coordinating the statewide cam-
paign. During April, a team of 23
community college administrators
will visit 94 high schools through-
out Florida. These teams will help
students assess their career inter-
ests, choose the type of degree or
certificate to pursue, submit an
application for admission and
apply for financial aid. FACTS.org
is coordinating the statewide cam-
paign and providing promotional
support with Web pages, direct
mail pieces, posters and other
materials. It is expected that the
campaign will successfully reach
more than 32,000 students.
"Community colleges are a
great opportunity for all Florida
students to get a quality education
at an affordable price," said Com-
munity College Chancellor David
Armstrong. "We encourage every
high school student to enroll in
their local community college and
achieve the American Dream
through a great college education
that will lead to an outstanding
career and higher quality of life."
The campaign is modeled
after the 2006 "College Connec-
tion" program at Austin Commu-
nity College at San Marcos High
School in Texas. In the first year of
the program, the percentage of
San Marcds students enrolled at
Austin Community College
increased from 34 to 45 percent.
That program has now expanded
to include 22 of the 30 districts in
Austin's service area. Several
other community colleges in
Texas are now considering mod-
eling their programs after the
Austin program.
"Florida saw an opportunity to
borrow a campaign that was so
successful in Texas and apply it
here in Florida," said FACTS.org
Executive Director Connie
Graunke, Ph.D. "Our goal is that
every high school senior, by the
time they walk across the stage to
get their diploma, will have
received a letter of acceptance to a
college or university. That will
make the next step of going to col-
lege easier."
For a list of "Go Higher-Get
Accepted" events, including partic-
ipating community colleges and
high schools, visit

Dog

Continued From Page 1
take care of it, or does not want
it anymore they can make a
phone call, then release it to the
care of Glades County Animal
Control or the Caloosa Humane
Society. It does not cost any
money to do this.
Ms. Bonnell believes that this
was intentional and is intent on
finding the responsible party.
"Come forward and turn the
person in who did this, and have
them take responsibility for what


they did," she urges anyone with
information about the case.
"Tips are kept anonymous and
no one will find out."
Mr. Cline agrees that the dog
didn't have to die in that way.
Instead, he said, the owner
could have turned it in to his
care at the animal shelter. The
animal did not have to suffer.
"That is the sad part of this sit-
uation," he said.
According to him, cruelty to
animals is a crime in the state of
Florida with repercussions.
Depending on the degree of cru-
elty, a person could be charged


with a misdemeanor or felony,
and fined thousands of dollars.
You can drop off an unwant-
ed animal for free at the Caloosa
Humane Society.
Just call 675-0997; or call
Glades County Animal Control at
946-6001. You can also adopt an
animal at these local shelters.

rescue, adoption and the

Light

Continued From Page 1
trict would like to keep the traffic
signal as is. It was difficult to
have the state install the light,
some said. If it is removed it
might be even more difficult to
have it restored, they argued.
Also, if the city grows and there
is more traffic, a request can be
submitted to FDOT to reset the
timing of the light to fully func-
tion.
The city will continue dis-
cussing what to do with the light
and if any formal request will be
made to FDOT.
City Clerk, Maxine Brantley,
has been instrumental in acquir-
ing funding for the splash pad
that is planned for Perry Park in


Fund

Continued From Page 1
arship Fund are: Wayne Aldrich,
Carl Perry, Larry Luckey, John
Huysman, Joe Flint, David Chap-
man and Paul Beck.
"The important aspect of this
foundation is the opportunity for
the citizens and businesses of
Glades County to participate in
making possible these funds for
deserving scholars," said Direc-
tor Larry Luckey. "As the years go
by, this of course means that not
only will the recipient in 2005
receive the $3,000 but the recipi-
ent from 2004 will receive
his/her second year scholarship
of another $3,000."
As a result, the need for addi-
tional funding to support the
scholarship grows by at least
$3,000 per year.
Already, the committee has
some ambitious goals to keep

the scholarship fund going.
"Our goal this year is $40,000
for deserving scholars," said Mr.
Luckey. "Every school and col-


the historical section of Moore
Haven. This will be an amuse-
ment for children and families
can sit nearby and watch them
play.
The water park will have an
interactive play area where a fine
mist of water will be sprayed
from noodle towers or water can
burst from water cannons.
The footing of the splash pad
will be a rubber surface and
there are plans for an octagon-
shaped shelter with hand rails.
The city is considering bids from
contractors before the construc-
tion and installation of the water
park can begin.
The updated zoning ordi-
nance has also taken many
hours of discussion and revision.
The final stages are being
addressed by the council.. Zon-


lege or university has increased
in cost this year, and even
though this amount may seem
like a lofty goal, I feel the citizens
of Glades County and its busi-
nesses will meet our goal. No
contribution is too small qr
too large."
Glades County School Board
members encourage residents to
give to the fund.
"There is not a better invest-
ment than a student's educa-
tion," said school board mem-
ber Mike Pressley. "Through the
efforts of the Moore Haven High
School Scholarship Foundation's
Board of Directors, a mechanism
has been created enabling every-
one to make this investment."
Mr. Pressley is convinced that
the community will take the task
on.
"I recognize and appreciate
the support people have given to
Glades County's youth," Mr.
Pressley said. "For example, at
the 2005 Glades County Youth
Livestock Show and Sale, over
$60,000 was given through 'add-
ons' in one night."

LAKE OKEECHOBEE -
Drought has a left wide expanse
of Lake Okeechobee dry, leading
to another threat to the endan-
gered lake. People driving ATVs
and four-wheel drive vehicles on
the lake bottom are killing the
vegetation and destroying poten-
tial fish habitat.
"When the lake is so dry there
is exposed lake bottom, a lot of
people -- for fun -- take their
ATVs and other vehicles and go
mudding," said Dani Moschella,
spokesperson for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC). "That is detri-
mental to the lake bottom."
"Last weekend there were
reports of hundreds of vehicles out
there on the lake," she said.
When the water levels are low,
the.areas around the edge of the
lake dry out. This allows seeds that
are in the soil to germinate and start
to grow. When the rains come and
the lake returns to normal levels,
these new plants provide essential

habitat for fish.
Ms. Moschella said the small
fish especially need this vegetation
for cover.
"When you drive an ATV over
that lake bottom, it kills that emerg-
ing vegetation," she said.
Ms. Moschella said she is hop-
ing if anglers in the area understand
how driving on the lake bottom
damages the fisheries, they will
help spread the word about the
problem.
Driving on the lake bottom is
against the law, she said. Anyone
who does this can be charged with
destruction of state land.
Ms. Moschella said FWC is
working with the South Florida
Water Management District and
local law enforcement agencies to
put up more signs around the lake
and to enforce the law.
She said those who are driving
on the lake are also leaving
behind litter.
"People are going out there,
leaving beer bottles and Gatorade
cans it's a mess and that is no
good for the lake either," she said.

Florida strengthens protection for the Everglades


WEST PALM BEACH The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) last week for-
malized a groundbreaking rule that
further, guarantees water to protect
and restore America's Everglades.
Known as the Regional Water
Availability Rule, this first-of-its kind
requirement prevents water users
from tapping the famed River of
Grass for new or additional sup-
plies of water. Setting aside the
water in the Everglades for environ-
mental restoration, permitted users
like urban water utilities along
Florida's southeast coast will now
have to find alternative sources to
supply regional growth.
"The South Florida Water Man-
agement District has taken another
significant step for protecting and
restoring America's Everglades,"
said Michael Sole, Secretary of the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection. "This visionary
rule safeguards Florida's invest-
ments, ensures that our communi-
ties manage growth responsibly
and provides additional guarantees
for making water available for the
environment first."
In South Florida, water suppli-
ers in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm


"This legally binding rule is essential for pro-
tecting the water in the Everglades, because
water is the key to restoration success. Our
Regional Water Availability Rule represents a
strong and very clear policy statement that the
South Florida Water Management District will
protect water for the environment."
Carol Ann Wehle,
SFWMD Executive Director


Beach and Monroe counties cur-
rently depend on an estimated 500
million gallons of water per day
from the Everglades to recharge
and sustain the Biscayne Aquifer -
their primary drinking water
source. Recognizing the need for
more protective limits for the River
of Grass, the District last year began
developing the Regional Water
Availability Rule to limit increased
reliance on the Everglades system
and Everglades-dependent ground-
water, formally identifying them as
"sources of limited availability."
"This rule is a big win for the
environment," said Kevin McCarty,
Governing Board Chairman of the


South Florida Water Management
District. "South Florida is a different
place than it was just 30 years ago
and our water resources are not
unlimited. This rule boldly address-
es regional growth and the need to
protect the natural system for
future generations."
Cities needing additional water
supplies will now be required to
seek sources that are not dependent
on the Everglades for recharge.
These alternative water supply solu-
tions may include recycling water,
using reclaimed water to recharge
the Biscayne Aquifer or drawing
water from the deeper Floridan
Aquifer, which requires treatment


to remove saltwater content.
"This legally binding rule is
essential for protecting the water in
the Everglades, because water is
the key to restoration success,"
added SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "Our Regional
Water Availability Rule represents a
strong and very clear policy state-
ment that the South Florida Water
Management District will protect
water for the environment."
Existing Water supply permits
are not being revoked. The rule
affects new applicants seeking a
permit and existing permittees
seeking permit renewal. The rule
specifically prevents permitted
water supply allocations from being
greater than levels that existed prior
to April 2006. To prevent shortfalls in
meeting current public drinking
water needs, the rule provides a
grace period for renewal applicants,
provided they are actively develop-
ing alternative supplies.
The District sought extensive
public input on the rule, holding
five rounds of workshops and issu-
ing five draft rules in response to
comments from stakeholders
before developing and publishing
the final draft.

Drought increases certain danger of wildfire


By Katrina Elsken
INI Florida
As the drought continues on
South Florida, the danger of wild-
fire increases.
"Probably our biggest concern
in the Everglades are muck fires,"
said Steve Coughlin, wildlife biol-
ogist with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC). He explained that the
soil in the Everglades conserva-
tion areas is highly organic. When
it dries out, the muck can easily
catch fire, he said.
If the water level falls below a
foot and a half below the surface,
the area is at risk, Mr. Coughlin
explained.
A muck fire can cause perma-
nent damage to the conservation
area, he said, because once the
organic soils are consumed by
fire, the ecosystem in that area
can't be repaired.
"If we have a muck fire that is a
permanent effect," he said. "That
is our bigger concern."
Mr. Coughlin said during the
2001 drought, there were muck
fires in the Everglades.


"In 2001, we were able to
move some big pumps in and
inundate those areas and get the
fires out but it still did some dam-
age," he said. "If that happens this
year, we don't know if we'll have
water to put them out or not."
Mr. Coughlin said the public
should be very careful not to start
any fires.
"All we need is a lightning
strike or a fire started by a mem-
ber of the public," he said.
"This year, we're not just dry in
any one area of south Florida,
we're dry from Kissimmee area on
down," he said. "There is no back-
up water anyone can send to us."
"We have a long ways to go
before the wet season is going to
kick in," he said.
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles Bronson has designated
this week, April 8 -14 as Wildfire
Awareness Week.
"March, April and May are usu-
ally the most active months of
Florida's year round wildfire sea-
son, and coupled with this year's
current drought situation, there is
a very good chance that we will


see an increase in wildfire activity
in the next few months," Mr.
Bronson said.
The Department of Agricul-
ture's Division of Forestry (DOF)
is conducting a Fire Weather Edu-
cation Campaign during Wildfire
Awareness Week in order to edu-
cate people about the effect
weather can have on fire behav-
ior. At the heart of the campaign
will be a contest where TV, online
newspaper viewers and radio lis-
teners are eligible to win a Fire
Danger Weather Kit. Participants
become eligible to win by correct-
ly answering questions provided
by the DOF each day.

Use caution when you are around alligators


By Katrina Elsken
INI FLORIDA
Recently boaters on Lake Okee-
chobee called the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) for
help. Their boat was stuck on a
sandbar in shallow water. The fish-
erman and his friends could have
easily walked to shore, except for
one problem they were sur-
rounded by alligators.
The water was too shallow for
the OCSO boats to reach the
boaters, so a member of the OCSO
Search and Rescue Auxiliary used
his own airboat to rescue the men.
As water levels in Lake Okee-
chobee drop, alligators that live in
the big lake area are being seen in
greater numbers.
"Low water levels tend to con-
centrate alligators in the areas that
still have water," explained Blair
Hayman, a biologist with the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC). "People tend
to see more of them."
The alligator population of Lake
Okeechobee is pretty stable, she
explained. While counts of any
wild animal cannot be completely
accurate, she said their surveys esti-
mate that Lake Okeechobee is
home to about 100,000 alligators.
Surveys done each year help the
FWC determine the number of alli-
gator hunt permits that will be
issued for each hunting area.


"A short term drought does not
have much effect on alligators,"
she explained. She said the low
lake levels force alligators into
smaller areas, but also' concentrate
the prey animals into these same
areas.
"In some cases it might even
make it easier for the alligator to
catch its prey," she said, "but
there's also more competition for
the food."
Even if food is scarce, "alligators
can go quite a long time without
eating," she said.
"A long term drought could
have a more noticeable effect. But
alligators are pretty resilient ani-
mals," said Ms. Hayman.
While alligator attacks on
humans are rare, this concentra-
tion of alligators in the water does
make it more dangerous.
"It's not a good idea to wade
through an area where there are
lots of alligators," Ms. Hayman
explained.
Alligators are also more notice-
able this time of year because they
become more active as the weath-
er warms up, she said.
"Sometimes there is a public
perception that the alligator popu-
lation is exploding, but that is not
true," Ms. Hayman continued.
She said the protection meas-
ures over the last 20 years have
allowed the alligator population to
recover to the point where the state


could allow alligator hunts.
"The annual hunt allows people
to enjoy the benefit of this natural
resource," she said.
The hunt also helps prevent
overpopulation.
"In areas where the alligator
population has increased, we
allow for more harvests by issuing
more permits," she said.
She said just because the per-
mits are issued, this does not mean
exactly that many alligators will be
killed. The hunters don't always
harvest as many alligators as their
permits would allow.
"Anytime you are in an area
where there are alligators, be
aware of their presence," Ms. Hay-
man advised.
She said this especially is true at
night, when alligators are more
active.
Alligators pose a special threat
to dogs. Never allow dogs to play in
the water or on the shoreline
where alligators are present, she
said.
"Gator bites are rare," she said.
"But they usually happen in the
water or at the water's edge. Some-
times people step on an alligator
and it reacts by biting."
According to the FWC, alligators
abound in all 67 counties and have
shared marshes, swamps, rivers
and lakes with people for centuries.
But because more individuals are
seeking waterfront property and


water-related activities increase
during the warm months, people
should be alert when they are in
areas where alligators could be
present.
The current drought has also
forced some alligators to move to
find water. Because of this alliga-
tors may now be found in ponds
and waterways where they were
not previously seen.
FWC officials advise Floridians

closely supervise children when
they are playing in or around water.
State law prohibits contact with
alligators, and it is against the law to
feed them.
There are other precautionary
.measures people should take to
reduce potential conflicts with alli-
gators, and they are available in the
"Living with Alligators" brochure at
MyFWC.com/gators.
The FWC annually receives
more than 18,000 alligator-related
complaints. The agency removes
more than 7,000 alligators each
year when the reptiles present dan-
ger to people or property.
If you encounter an alligator
that poses a threat to you, your pets
or your property, and the alligator is
more than 4 feet long, call the
FWC's toll-free Nuisance Alligator
Hotline at 1-866-FWC-GATOR
(392-4286). The telephone number
is the primary contact for all alliga-
tor complaints and is available to
customers 24 hours a day.


Gators: frequently asked questions


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
answers frequently asked ques-
tions (FAQ) about alligators.
What is a nuisance
alligator?
Generally, alligators may be
considered a nuisance when they
are at least 4 feet in length and
pose a threat to people or their
pets or property. Alligators less
than 4 feet in length are naturally
fearful of people and are not gen-
erally capable of eating anything
larger than a small turtle. They eat
small fish, frogs and other small
animals. They are too small to be
a threat to even small pets and
pose no threat to people. They are
typically not dangerous to people
unless someone attempts to han-
dle them. Also, they are common
in Florida and the mere presence
of a small alligator is not cause for
concern, even when they turn up
in places where peopl'-may not
expect to see them such as reten-
tion ponds and drainage ditches.
However, occasionally alligators
less than 4 feet in length are legiti-
mate problems and must be
addressed. If an alligator less than
4 feet in length approaches peo-
ple, does not retreat if approached
or is in a location that is not natu-
ral, call the Nuisance Alligator Hot-
line at 1-866-FWC-GATOR (1-866-
392-4286). The Statewide


Nuisance Alligator Program strives
to reduce the threat from alligators
to people and their property in
developed areas, while conserv-
ing alligators in areas where alliga-
tors naturally occur. If you have a
nuisance alligator call the Nui-
sance Alligator Hotline at 1-866-
FWC-GATOR (1-866-392-4286).
How many alligators
are there in Florida?
Counting animals in the wild
is without a doubt one of the
most formidable challenges to
wildlife scientists. There never is
an easy way to answer this ques-
tion, but here's what we know.
Based on known amounts of
suitable alligator habitat
statewide and estimates of alliga-
tor densities in those different
types of habitat, we believe there
are more than 1 million wild alli-
gators in Florida.
How fast can
an alligator run?
We know of no one who has
measured the ground speed of
alligators. Actually, there is little
reason, in regard to population
management and basic knowl-
edge of alligators, to research
this topic. Alligators are aquatic
animals; they hunt and capture
prey that is in or immediately
adjacent to water. Alligators and
other crocodilians will go on


land to feed on dead animal car-
casses, and they may attempt to
prey upon confined or tethered
animals. Although alligators are
capable of running, they use this
gait to flee threatening situa-
tions. There is no documented
evidence of alligators running
after human beings to prey upon
them. Also, there is no basis to
the myth that you should run in
zig-zag patterns to avoid a charg-
ing alligator. If you do find your-
self in the extremely unlikely
position of avoiding a lunging
alligator, you should run in a
straight line away from the alli-
gator and it's habitat, which is
where the alligator will most
likely retreat. Regardless of how
fast alligators can run, you
should never approach an alliga-
tor that is on land.
Is the American alligator
an endangered species?
Historically, alligators were
depleted from many parts of their
range as a result of market hunt-
ing, poaching, and loss of habitat.
In 1967, the alligator was listed as
an endangered species (under a
law that preceded the Endan-
gered Species Act of 1973), mean-
ing it was considered in danger of
extinction throughout all or a sig-
nificant portion of its range. The
Endangered Species Act prohibit-
ed alligator hunting, allowing the

stocked with colored, hard boiled
eggs, it's time to come up with.
ways to use them. Hard boiled eggs
should be kept refrigerated.
According to the United States
Department of Agriculture, hard
boiled eggs should be consumed
within week after cooking.
The shells of raw eggs have a
natural protection against bacteria.
However, boiling or steaming the
eggs causing this protection to be
lost. Hardboiled eggs have tiny
microscopic holes in the shells.
These holes are too small to see,
but large enough to allow in bacte-
ria. That's why it is important to
keep hard boiled eggs refrigerated,
and to discard them if they are
more than week old.
Hard boiled eggs can be an easi-
ly portable, nutritious snack. How-
ever, they do not travel well for
long. If a hard boiled egg is out of
the refrigerator for more than two
hours, it may not be safe to eat.
There are many ways to use
hard boiled eggs in recipes. The fol-
lowing recipes using hard boiled
eggs came from the Iowa Egg
Council.

species to rebound in numbers in
many areas where it had been
depleted. Alligators were down-
listed from endangered to threat-
ened in 1977, and, in 1987, the
American alligator was reclassi-
fied by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service as threatened due to simi-
larity of appearance. This designa-
tion does not imply that alligator
populations are threatened; it's
purpose is to afford protection to
endangered crocodilians, such as
the American crocodile and the
black caiman (which occurs in
South America), by regulating the
management of alligators and the
legal trade in alligator products.
Do other crocodilians
occur in Florida?
Florida is also home to the
American crocodile. The Ameri-
can crocodile lives in coastal
saltwater wetlands in extreme
southern Florida. This crocodile
is listed as an endangered
species and, as such, is protect-
ed by state, federal and interna-
tional laws and treaties.

Alligators are more active this time of year, and the low lake
levels have caused the gators to concentrate in larger num-
bers in the areas that still have water.

Remembering life-changing moments and the moment: Easter


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Every week we celebrate Sun-
day as our day of worship. It is a
day that has turned out to be a
declared "day of rest" in our soci-
ety. It wasn't ..
always that
way, though. In
the earliest ..a.
days, our i"-'
ancestors kept
their "Sab- .
bath" on Satur-
day, beginning
Friday evening
and finishing SamuelS.
Saturday Thomas
evening. For
those who became Christians,
they continued on from Saturday
evening into Sunday morning; to
proclaim the message of a life-
changing event that had hap-


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Once again Easter season has
hardly finished before I have to
start thinking of tax season.
Once again I find myself thinking
about our Easter services, our
annual butterfly release follow-
ing those services and all of the
other special Holy Week activi-
ties while dealing \ ith the nag-
ging weight that taxes are s6on
due. Once again, I find it ironic
that as I sit at my computer
thinking about my Easter offer-
ing my thoughts are invaded by
the worry of what offering I will
need to make to the government
by the middle of this month.
With apologies to the IRS,
one seems very heavenly and the
other very earthly. One minute
I'm at Calvary, the next I'm at my
checkbook. One reminds how
God paid it all and the other


opened to them and what it meant
for all people. It was time to wor-
ship in a new way and to give
thanks for a new gift. Over time,
as the importance of this gift from
God was realized, Saturday wor-
ship fell away; the really special
day to worship was that weekly
commemoration of Easter and all
that it meant. We've carried on
that lesson and tradition ever
since; every Sunday is a celebra-
tion of Easter when the empty
tomb was found and the women
who visited there met the risen
Lord. From then on, things would
be different; that defining
moment would change every-
thing. One had been raised from
the dead and He promised that
we would be with Him for eterni-
ty; now anyone who believed
would see their life with a new
purpose and the reason for it all.
Each Sunday became an Easter;
each life became changed


reminds that I have a lot to pay.
In all of this, I try to keep in mind
the words of Christ to render to
Caesar the things that are Cae-
sar's and to God the things that
are God's.
As I think
about what's
ahead of me, I
find my
thoughts drift-
ing back to the
guy who gave
the donkey for
Jesus to ride
into Jerusalem John
on that first Hicks
Palm Sunday.
Who was this guy? He's not
named. The only thing we know
is that Jesus told His disciples, "If
anyone asks you why you are
taking the donkeys, say that the
Master has need of them and he
will send them at once."
(Matthew 21:3)
Did this guy just give his ani-


because we shared its' promise. I
remember the first time I was
asked to preach. It was something
I was preparing to do at that time,
but then the moment actually
came and I was to stand before a
congregation and say something
about what they had heard in the
lessons for that day. I remember
afterwards they shook my hand,
thank me and then went on their
way, but I was seen in a new way.
It was the first of many days that
would follow, suddenly I was rec-
ognized as "the preacher" and it
would continue. It would culmi-
nate in ordination and being rec-
ognized as different than before.
From that moment, I would be
called to serve by those who rec-
ognized me as minister; there
would be another quality with a
special trust and special obliga-
tions, special joys and challenges.
It !would be different than before.
I remember other life-changing


mals to someone in need or did
he know it was Jesus who need-
ed the donkey? Did the man
worry about getting the donkey
back? When I put myself in his
place I wonder how freely I
might have given my donkey. I
sometimes wonder about how
freely I might or might not give
today. I wonder about these
things because there are times I
like to keep my animals to
I-l', .El tfr rrmy own use.
'Sometimes I get the impres-
sion that God wants me to give
Him something or do something
in His name and sometimes I
don't give it or do it because it's
not convenient or I'm really busy
at the moment or I'm worried
about getting back what I am
giving out. Sometimes I wonder
if my time and giving today will
really make a difference in the
long run. Sometimes, in retro-
spect, I feel like I have missed
opportunities.


moments too. There was a year
when I spent every night and
most of the days writing a disser-
tation at a University Library,
preparing a dissertation that was
to be "an original contribution to
knowledge." The day came when
I was to defend my work before a
faculty committee and when it
would be accepted-or not accept-
ed-and I would graduate-or not. I
remember sitting at the end of a
long table and all of the profes-
sors voting to accept it, then con-
gratulating me. When I left the
room, students outside asked me
"How'd you do?" and I told them
"I passed!" They said "Congratu-
lations, doctor!" and life would be
.different afterwards. New doors
would open; new opportunities
i\:ould present themselves, new
insights and new possibilities
opened up from that moment
onward. Easter is that moment for
us all. It is life-changing and opens


Defining prayer: similar, but not alike


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
If we were all asked what
prayer means to us, the answers
would probably be similar but not
exactly alike. Let me give you my
answer.
1: An acknowledgement of
God. We are told, "In all thy ways
acknowledge Him, and He shall
direct thy paths" (Proverbs 3:6).
Prayer is one way to acknowledge
God (that He exists, that He is our
Father; that He is great, that He is
over us, that He hears and
answers our prayers, etc.). To me
this is so important!
2: Prayer is spending time with
God. In prayer He is our Father,


enjoy spending time with those
we love. We visit, go places
together, do things with each
other, and live with and for each
other. In prayer we are spending
personal time with our heavenly
Father, doing what the song says,
"Take time to be holy speak oft
with thy Lord."
3: It is praise and thanksgiving
to Him for His continued good-
ness and blessings. He "daily
loadeth us with benefits" (Psalm
69:19). "His compassion fail not.
They are new every morning"
(Lam. 3:22-23). He opens the
windows of heaven and pours out
more blessings than we can
receive (Mal. 3:10). We are cor-


the sparrow and I know He
watches me" (Matt: 10:29, 31)..
4: Accepting God's invitation to
ask things for myself. His door is
ever open for all of us Christians to
tell Him what we need and want.
Isn't it wonderful that there is a
place where we can meet the One
who is both willing and able to
give us what we need? That place
is prayer and that person is God!
5: An opportunity to ask in
behalf of other people and King-
dom projects. This is where we
can spend much time with God. It
is connected with our love for oth-
ers and our interest in God's King-
dom, the Church.
May one or more of these per-


you in your prayer life.
In closing, let me share some
thoughts from songs that mean
much to me: "Oh, what peach we
often forfeit; Oh, what needless
pain we bear. All because we do
not carry everything to God in
prayer." "Sweet Hour of Prayer"
reminds us of what a privilege
prayer is as long as we inhabit
these mortal bodies, but when at
last from Mt. Pisgah's lofty height
we view our heavenly home and
take our flight and shout while
passing through the air, "Farewell,
farewell, sweet hour of prayer," for
there we will have no unfulfilled
need! My favorite verse regarding
prayer is Ephesians 3:20. Read it,


And then there are those
times when I get the impression
that God wants me to give Him
something and I respond and
feel honored that a gift of mine
would be used to carry Jesus
into another place.
The reality is -that all of us
have a donkey. You aridI each
have something in our lives
which, if given back to God,
could, like the donkey, move
Jesus and His story further down
'the road. Maybe you can bake or
clean or perhaps teach a class,
speak a foreign language or
drive a car. Maybe you can sing
or read or give a hug. Maybe you
can program a computer, sell
real estate or even write a check.
Whichever, that's your donkey.
Whichever, it could be that God
wants to mount your donkey
and enter into another place,
another situation, another heart,
another life. Do you let Him? Or
do you hold tight to the reins?
