State briefing on disasters


Local officials
puzzled by lack
of state funds
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY The
State Emergency Response
Team (SERT) from Tallahassee
sent a representative to inform
Glades County public safety and
emergency management of the
responsibilities they must handle


should a disaster occur.
Glades County officials, how-
ever, said that not much can be
done with limited resources and
asked the visiting representative
how the county is expected to ad-
dress an emergency event. In the
end, there were few answers.
Suzanne Adams, SERT fi-
nance and administration, gave
a presentation to local officials in
the commission chambers of the
courthouse on Aug. 14.
Stuart Whiddon, sheriff; An-
gela Snow, emergency man-
agement director; Bob Jones,


public safety director; Wendell
Taylor, county manager; Erica
Villafuerte, housing director; and
county commissioners were all
present.
Ms. Adams told those pres-
ent that only an elected leader
has the authority to declare an
emergency. This could be the
chairman of the board of county
commissioners or a city mayor.
However, only the governor
may request assistance from the
president of the United States. It
is vital, the speaker said, that se-
nior leadership on a county and

municipal level should have a
plan worked out, practice it and
inform citizens. Even individuals
and families should have a plan
that includes evacuation, she
said.
According to Ms. Adams, the
disaster plan must include special
populations such as the elderly,
disabled, children, families with
pets and various non-English
speaking groups. These special
groups may need transportation
and shelter.
She also emphasized that
the needs of victims are fore-


most, followed by care for first
responders. The' first 72 hours is
crucial to stabilizing the situation
and looking into problems.
Communications must be
established first, then search
and rescue operations, followed
by meeting human needs and
restoring critical infrastructure
such as electricity and water.

Heart Trail


BOCC passes
resolution in
support of effort
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The Mili-
tary Order of the Purple Heart
(MOPH) celebrates its 75th an-
niversary this year.
It was established in 1932
to keep alive the history of
America's citizen soldiers from
all wars, and has chapters all
across the United States.
General George Washington
created the Badge of Military
Merit in 1782, and its honor


was officially reinstated in 1932
as the Purple Heart.
There is a national effort to
have highways designated as
part of a Purple Heart Trail in or-
der to honor men and women
who were wounded while in
the service of their country.
Statewide there are local
chapters of MOPH that have
asked local governments to
pass resolutions that name
highways as part of the trail.
It is a way of remember-
ing the soldier's sacrifice and
preserving history for younger
citizens.

The youth-based campaign,
which had its beginnings here

tobacco companies and their


marketing practices that target
young people still in school.
Students Working against
Tobacco (SWAT) urges teens
to reject the advertisements
which can influence them to
use tobacco products.

E-Duck Stamp available Sept. 1


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC).
will. be making it easier for hunt-
ers, bird watchers, stamp collec-
tors and others who want to con-
serve the nation's wetlands to buy
Federal Migratory Bird Hunting
and Conservation Stamps, com-
monly known as Duck Stamps.
Beginning Sept. 1, the FWC,
in partnership with the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service (USFWS),
will launch a new E-Duck Stamp
program to enable the agency to
sell stamps electronically through


its automated licensing system.
Customers will receive a Duck
Stamp privilege printed on their
license that will be valid nation-
wide for 45 days. They will then
receive, through the mail, a pa-
per stamp by Amplex Corporate,
a company on contract with the
USFWS to fulfill the paper stamp
requirement. After the 45 days,
the E-Duck Stamp will expire and
purchasers must possess the pa-
per stamp to receive its full ben-
.efit.
The E-Duck Stamp will fulfill


the license requirement for water-
fowl hunters and also allow free
entry into any national wildlife
refuge in the United States. The
Federal Duck Stamp is available at
most major sporting goods stores
selling hunting and fishing licens-
es, select post offices and online
through the U.S. Postal Service
and Amplex Corporate.
The Duck Stamp also will
be available at license agents,
tax collectors, by telephone, or
through www.wildlifelicense.
com/fl. Hunters 16 years or old-


er are required to buy a Federal
Duck' Stamp to hunt waterfowl.
The cost of the Duck Stamp will
be $17.50.

U.S. Army Corps unveils new lake schedule


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
Lake Okeechobee may soon
be maintained at a lower level
with reduced discharges of fresh-
water to the St. Lucie Canal and
the Caloosahatchee River.
Some environmentalists have
claimed that freshwater discharg-
es from Lake Okeechobee have
upset the balance of salinity in the
estuaries.
At a public meeting held Tues-
day, Aug. 14, at the Okeechobee
Civic Center, the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers (COE) unveiled a
proposed new program of lake
regulation.
Kim Taplan, south Florida pro-
gram manger for restoration for
COE, presented the tentatively
selected plan (TSP). Computer
simulation models, using actual
conditions over the past 36 years,
were used to demonstrate the
outcome of various proposed
schedules.
"Public safety is our main con-
cern," she said.
Ms. Taplan said the proposed
plan was designed to balance
all lake management objectives
including ecology, the estuaries,
navigation, the Everglades and
flood control.
The TSP represents a compro-
mise to balance all these compet-
ing objectives. It is based on sea-
sonally varying lake levels divided
into three bands -- high lake man-
agement band, 16 to 17.25 feet;
operational band, 9.7 feet to 17.25
feet; and water shortage manage-
ment band, 9.7 to 12.2 feet.
There is an overlap of the lake
Levels because each band width
varies with the seasons. The high
lake level is designed for maxi-
mum releases. The operational
band provides for a lake stage
to balance all authorized project


purposes. The water shortage
band calls for water rationing.
The lake regulation schedule
now in effect is the water supply
environment (WSE). Since the
WSE was instituted in 2000, wa-
ter managers have found it to be
inflexible to address extreme wet
weather conditions. The WSE
caused delay in releasing water
from the lake causing high lake
levels and requiring larger volume
discharges to the St. Lucie and
Caloosahatchee estuaries. Re-
cent high lake levels have caused
concern about the stability of the
Herbert Hoover Dike. There has
also been public concern over the
health of the lake and estuaries.
In 2005 plans were set in mo-
tion to develop a new regulation
schedule.
In July of this year, the TSP was
unveiled for public view.
The TSP maintains the lake at
safer water levels, than WSE and
allows for quicker response and
operational flexibility to lake con-
ditions and tributary inflows.
While higher 'lake levels tend-
to benefit water supply, they may
increase risk to public health and
safety and the ecology of the lake.
Lower lake levels may improve
lake ecology and reduce flood
damage but may reduce water
supplies and harm downstream
estuaries.
"This plan actually lowers the
lake level overall," Ms. Taplan
said. "We are working to rehabili-
tate the dike so that we can oper-
ate at higher levels in the future."
As soon the Herbert Hoover
Dike is repaired, she said the
team is going back to look at new
schedule.
"This is really designed to be
an interim schedule," she said.
"We have been able to reduce
those damaging high volume re-


leases to the Caloosahatchee. We
looked at more low flows to the
estuaries to reduce salinity."
Ms. Taplan added that being
able to release more water to the
south and an increased number
of stormwater treatment areas are
part of the long range plan.
"This plan gives us a lot more
flexibility," she said. "This allows
us to incorporate a lot more infor-
mation into making decisions."
The plan includes releasing
water at low volumes more often
to the estuaries and there is some
operational flexibility that may
reduce the impact of discharges.
Water managers will use a deci-
sion tree similar to the one used
.with the current lake regulation
schedule.
Changes will be made weekly,
or more often if necessary.
"We feel like we have done
the best we could at optimizing
the plan and balancing all the
purposes of the lake" she said in
conclusion.
"We appreciate that you are
trying to share adversity," stated
Charles Shinn of the Florida Farm
Bureau Federation. "I feel that it is
imperative agriculture is involved
somehow in the decision making
process."
He noted that some agricultur-
al interests are in dire straits..
David Brent, a private citizen
stated that he felt a lot of the prob-
lems are upstream of the. lake. He
advocated more work in the Kis-
simmee basin to lessen environ-
mental impacts on the lake.
"We think you guys have done
about as good a job as you could
do," was the opinion of Dr. Paul
Gray, staff scientist with Audubon
of Florida. "We think that this is a
reasonable schedule."
He noted that a lot of the lake's
problems can't be fixed right


Ranchlands used to store water


WEST PALM BEACH De-
spite the current water shortage,
water managers are planning for
wetter conditions by expanding
partnerships that will allow wa-
ter storage on private land north
of Lake Okeechobee, helping to
reduce inflows to the lake and the
frequency of discharges to coast-
al estuaries. As part of the Florida
Ranchlands Environmental Ser-
vices Program, four additional pi-
lot projects were approved earlier
this month by the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
WMD) Governing Board. These
agreements double the number
of landowners ready to take on
and store excess water on private
land when lake levels are unusu-
ally high.
"Storing water is so vital to
lake and estuary improvements,
but building large-scale reservoirs
takes time," said SFWMD. Govern-
ing Board Chairman Eric Buer-
mann. "I applaud the willingness
of private landowners to partici-


pate in environmental restoration
by providing immediate relief to
our water storage needs."
Four ranches added to the pro-
gram are: Lightsey Cattle Com-
pany; Rafter T Ranch; C.M. Payne
& Son, Inc.; and Syfrett Ranch
West. All are within the Lake
Okeechobee, Caloosahatchee
and St. Lucie estuary watersheds.
Together the lands will provide
some 2,200 acre-feet of additional
water storage capability.
Launched in October 2005, the
Florida Ranchlands Environmen-
tal Services Project is developing
a program in which ranchers in
the Northern Everglades provide,
environmental services of water
retention, phosphorus load re-,
duction and wetland habitat ex-
pansion to agencies of the state
and other willing buyers. These
ranches can bring services on line
quickly as compared to other op-
tions and will complement public
investment in regional water stor-
age and water treatment facilities,


such as reservoirs and treatment
wetlands,
The Florida Ranchlands En-
vironmental Services Project is
being implemented through col-
laboration between the World
Wildlife Fund, eight participat-
ing ranchers, USDA's Natural
Resources Conservation Service
and several state agencies: Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services,' South Florida
Water .Management District and
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection. Technical sup-
port is being provided by scientists
from the MacArthur Agro-Ecology
Research Center and the Univer-
sity of Florida.
Total funding from federal,
state and private sources for the
Florida Ranchlands Environmen-
tal Services Project exceeds $5
million for phase one, which en-
compasses pilot project imple-
mentation and program design.


Red Cross helps residents prepare


WEST PALM BEACH The
Glades Area Branch of the Ameri-
can Red Cross Greater Palm
Beach Area Chapter joined Hen-
dry County Emergency Manage-
ment and the Fire Departments in
LaBelle, Clewiston and Western
Palm Beach County to hand out
preparedness information bags at
Nisbet Enterprise, Inc. owned Mc-
Donald's locations. Information
bags were stuffed with brochures
including a checklist of supplies
that should be included in a disas-
ter supply kit, how to purify water
in the event of water contamina-
tion and tips on preparing a family
disaster plan.
Nearly 600 bags we handed
out over the course of three days


at three different McDonald's lo-
cations in Belle Glade, Clewiston
and LaBelle. Debbie McDuffie,
Glades Area Branch Manager said
"Partnering with Nisbet Enterpris-
es has allowed us the opportunity
to provide the community of Belle
Glade, Clewiston and LaBelle with
timely hurricane preparedness in-
formation."
In addition to allowing the Red
Cross to hand-out information
to customers, Nisbet Enterprises
also donated 5% of net proceeds
for the day to the Red Cross, a to-
tal of $1,223. The money raised
will go to help the Glades Area in
the event of a hurricane or other
disaster.
Steve Nisbet, Sr., Owner of Nis-


bet Enterprises said "It is always
wonderful to give back to the
community, the information the
Red Cross provides is critical and
we are glad to be able to help."
The Red Cross recommends
three actions that everyone should
take to be prepared for disasters:
Get a Kit Including water
(one gallon per person per day),
food, flashlights, first aid kits,
medications, radio, tools, cloth-
ing, personal items, sanitary sup-
plies, money, contact information
and pet supplies.
Make a Plan Discuss a disas-
ter plan with your family, choose
two places to meet, know how to
turn off your utilities and practice
your plan.

now. Dr. Gray said that instead of
being too high, as it was in the re-
cent past, the lake is going to be
too low too often. However, he
said that the flow to the Caloosa-
hatchee River would be better.
If the dike is repaired, he said
the lake level could go up which
would give increased flexibility to
water mangers. He said comple-
tion of Everglades Agriculture
Area reservoirs would help the


situation by giving more storage
areas to the south. He added that
the Kissimmee River restoration
project would held in maintaining
lake levels.
After a series of public hear-
ings, the TSP should be in place
by January of 2008.

Guest Commentary



Mental Health program, no room for cuts


I


By Maggie Labarta, Ph.D.
The news is bad, but not un-
expected. The $71 billion budget
state passed in May no longer
appears realistic and Florida law-
makers are now faced with the
daunting task of cutting around
$1 billion from the expense side
of the budget to match the feared
- and now almost certain rev-
enue shortfall.
A special session will be-
gin Sept. 18 and could run up
through Oct. 5 and according to
Senate President Ken Pruitt, their
task will be "difficult, but achiev-
able." Since most of the budget is
allocated to education and social
services, programs in those areas
have been told to expect potential
cuts between 4 and 10 percent.
But which programs to cut? No
one wants to decrease the num-
ber of police officers, firefighters
or teachers who are so essential
to our safety and well-being. But
how does an area such as mental
health services fit into the picture?
Should a budget item that some
might argue does not affect as
many people really be considered
as vital as one for those entrusted
with our lives and our future?
You may find the answer to
that question rather surprising.
Mental illnesses directly affect
far more people than most would
suspect. In fact, the majority of
Flnridianes will at onme noint in


their lifetimes meet the diagnostic
criteria for one or more mental
disorders. About one-quarter (26
percent) of the general popula-
tion reported symptoms sufficient
for diagnosing such a disorder
during the past year.
Mental illnesses also have a tre-
mendous impact on us at school
and work. More than half of our
youth with an emotional distur-
bance drop out of school and ap-
proximately 20 percent of youth
with an emotional disturbance
are arrested before they can even
finish their education. And the
problems may even be worse at
the workplace as clinical depres-
sion has become one of Ameri-
ca's most costly illnesses in terms
of loss of business productivity.
Left untreated, depression is as
costly as heart disease or AIDS to
the U.S. economy, costing more
than $43.7 billion in employee ab-
senteeism alone. Mental illnesses
are the second leading cause of
premature death and disability.
Over time, untreated men-
tal illnesses have taken their toll
on our communities as well, as
years of under-funding commu-
nity programs has contributed
to increased homelessness and
higher crime rates. As a result, far
too many individuals with mental
illnesses remain in jails across our
state because there are no avail-
able beds in our limited hospital
facilities And too manvwho serve


their time and are released from
those prisons are doomed to re-
turn because there are insufficient
funds for follow-up treatments.
With budgets tight across the
country, how does Florida com-
pare with other states for funding
mental health programs? Again,
the news is not good. Florida ranks
48th in the nation in per-capita
mental health spending 37th in
Medicaid per-capita spending for
enrolled disabled beneficiaries
and 47th in Medicaid per-capita
spending for enrolled children.
At the same time, Florida
ranks second in the number of
homeless, first in the number
of substantiated reports of child
abuse and neglect, second in the
number of children in juvenile de-
tention facilities and third in the
number of prison inmates. A sig-
nificant portion of these problems
can be traced directly to the lack
of mental health care.
If this is what happens when
community mental health pro-
grams are left to languish without
even moderate budget increases,
what in the world can we expect
if budgets are actually cut? How
much more can we neglect some
of our state's most vulnerable citi-
zens? We certainly can't afford to
find out.
Mental health services should
be treated as essential not only
because like fire and police ser-
vices thev save lives. but also

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Thursday, August 2.3, 2067


because of the impact not fund-
ing them adequately will have for
years to come. A failure to invest
in the mental health system leads
directly to increased costs for
hospital inpatient services, emer-
gency-room care, shelters, foster
care, juvenile detention facilities,
jails and prisons. That is poor in-
vestment by any standard.
We fully understand that the
harsh reality of our fiscal situa-
tion will call for tough decisions,
and good programs will have to
be cut. But how much lower are
we willing to sink in our funding
of mental health services? We are
already at the bottom! Cutting
back on funding for the essential
services that community mental
health programs provide would
be disastrous for the individuals
who so desperately need help and
the communities in which they
live not to mention that cutting
these programs today will cost us
exponentially more in the future.
Yes, cutting the state budget
will be tough, but justifying the
decision to cut essential commu-
nity mental health services will be
even tougher.

Florida Citrus Mutual optimistic for 2008


LAKELAND Florida Citrus
Mutual said Thursday, Aug. 16, it
is optimistic the 2007-2008 citrus
S season will be a good one for the
s: ate ': g r,-,lu e "- "' : '
The announcement comes on
the heels of an early private esti-
mate issued this week that pegged
Florida's orange crop at 198 mil-
lion boxes 98.6 million boxes
of Early/Mids, 3.3 million boxes
Navels and 96.1 million boxes of
Valencias. If realized, that would
be a 55 percent increase over last
year's orange crop.
"We need to rebuild orange
juice inventories which are at ex-
tremely low levels," said Michael
W Sparks, executive vice presi-
dent/CEO of Florida Citrus Mu-
tual. "So a larger crop is manage-


able, however, we'll be surprised
if it hits 198 million boxes."
Mr. Sparks said an upcom-
ing citrus tree census could sig-
nificantly alter perceptions of the
orange production landscape. He
also noted that most growers are
reporting very high fruit counts
per tree and there has been a lot
of concern about size.
The United States Department
of Agriculture (USDA) is sched-
uled to issue a 2007 Tree Census
Update based on seven citrus
producing counties on Sept. 14,
at 1:30 pm. The census will cover
DeSoto, Polk, Collier, Hendry, Lee,
Indian River and Martin counties.
Sparks said even with a larger
crop he still expects growers to get
high returns, however they may


not reach the levels of '06-'07.
"Last year we had historic
highs and I don't think we'll see
two seasons in a row with those
numbers," he said. "But returns
will still be good and will help
growers offset the increased pro-
duction costs associated with fuel
prices, scouting and pest and dis-
ease control."
The USDA's initial citrus crop
estimate is scheduled for Oct. 12.
Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
-in 1948 and based in Lakeland,
is the state's largest citrus grow-
ers organization with more than
8,000,grower members. The Flor-
ida citrus industry employs 90,000
people and has a $9 billion eco-
nomic impact. Please visit www.

Sheriff and churches help victims of violent crime


The Hendry County Sheriff's
Office, Our Lady Queen of Heaven
Catholic Church, El Faro Assembly
of God and the State Attorney's
office sponsored a public meeting
for victims of violent crimes on
Aug. 11. This meeting was hosted
for the Migrant Community and
the families living within Hendry
County to encourage reporting to
law enforcement all crimes they
have been made a victim of and
explain to them their legal rights.
Investigator Fernando Herrera
of the Sheriff's Office introduced
himself and began the meeting by
asking Fr. Jioboni Batista of Our
Lady Queen of Heaven Catholic
Church to open with a prayer.

ment of the Department of Chil-

functions. She spoke about the
first case she was given to work


and how it turned out. She also
introduced two of her co-work-
ers, Dan Cavanaugh and Julia
Howard.
Investigator Herrera spoke
about robbery, sex crimes, do-
mestic violence, battery and hu-
man trafficking. He stated that
he had been assigned to the task

Southwest Florida. His advice to
everyone was to stick with the


process and report to law en-
forcement all crimes in which
they have been made a victim.
"We (Hendry County Speriff's
Office) are not the border patrol
or INS," said Sheriff Ronnie Lee.
"If you don't report the crime,
you'll become the victim again,
again and again."
Reverend Isabel Valentin of El
Faro Assembly of God closed the
meeting with prayer.


Jacob Summerlin King of the Crackers


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
Dressed in range clothes with a
large bandana and a turned-back
Stetson, he clutched a bullwhip
in one hand and had a corncob
pipe in his mouth, the epitome of
a cracker cattleman.
Jacob Summerlin was in many
ways the essence of the "True
American," one who survived the
American frontier.
The authors Joe A. Ackerman,
Jr. and J. Mack Ackerman ex-
pound on his strong philanthrop-
ic spirit, his sturdy moral tenacity
and incredible modesty. They also
wrote that he had a keen wit, a
true sense of reality, never took
himself too seriously and never
"put on airs."
He dearly loved to be called
King of the Crackers and loved all
that it implied, that is, one who
was close to the earth and care-
less of comfort.
The King of Crackers was a
highly successful merchant, hos-
teller and exporter, a veteran of
three wars and an effective peace-
maker.
One of the King's earliest an-
cestors was a Scottish merchant
named John Somervaille a name


that's had numerous spellings
down through the years including-
Summerell, Somerell, Somerwell,
Summerland, Summerale and Su-
merlan. In 1845 this name was le-
gally changed to Summerlin the
name that's been in use for over
150 years and which, naturally, is
used in this biography.
Back in those days, boots and
shoes were often homemade from
home-tanned cowhides, which
were either cured by stretching
or by using lime and tannic acid.
The lime was used to remove the
hair from the skins and the hides
were prepared or tanned in tannic
acid.
SAlthough the region around
Knights' Station was not cotton
country, Jake and most other set-
tlers had small cotton patches.
The harvested cotton was con-
verted into a tough cloth known as
osnaburg. (A fabric that is called
"osnaburg" can still be had today
and is used for table cloths, place
mats, napkins, draperies and cur-
tains. Reminiscent of olden days
it's often referred to as rustic or
antique cotton.)
Finer woven material known
as muslin could be smoothed
out and was sometimes used for
underwear. One of Jake's sons,,


Samuel Summerlin, would later
recall seeing his mother, Frances,
carding cotton a tiresome but
necessary part of the process. He
also remembered seeing his sis-
ter, Martha, spin it.
There are almost countless
stories in this 150-some page
book that not only entertain but
enlighten the reader about Florida
in days long gone. One of those
occurred when Jake and his son,
Sam, were hunting near'old Fort
Cummings.
One evening after they had
turned in to sleep, they were
awakened by the frightful screams
of two panthers that were fighting
and that too close for comfort to
their camp. Jake grabbed a light-
wood knot from their campfire
and threw it in the direction of the
big cats. They both scampered
off into the blackness of a nearby
swamp and were not heard from
again.
This highly illustrated history
includes a detailed map of Florida
(of that era) plus a Summerlin
family tree and extensive explana-
tory footnotes that clarify and
define many of the stories from
one generation to another. An
Epilogue as well as an extensive
Index is also included.

Who would have thought that
a peaceable, pint-sized equine
with big fuzzy ears would ,be
guard against livestock predators?
Donkeys have a built-in hatred of
dogs and anything dog-like.
Dusty Tails Ranch, in
Okeechobee County is home to
Tracey Gibson and 14 registered
miniature donkeys.
"It was kind of bizarre. I got
my first pair, a gelding and jennet
(female) as a gift in 1995 and just
fell in love with them. I wanted to
breed the little girl, so that started
my search for a jack (male). I fi-
nally had to go out of state to Tex-
as where I had a friend who had
been breeding them for about 20
years," she said.
"Her donkeys had great blood-
lines, so I went there and here I
am with 14. These little donkeys
are so sociable, docile and affec-
tionate -- I'm hooked!
"I wanted good bloodlines if I
was going to breed."
Miniature donkeys originated
in the Mediterranean area of
,Northern Africa in ancient times
and more recently from the Is-
lands of Sicily and Sardinia off the
west coast of Italy. Over time the
distinctions between the two is-
land populations blurred and they
are now considered one breed
properly called Miniature Mediter-
ranean Donkeys.

The National Miniature Don-
key Association's breed standard
cites these donkeys are 200 to 350
pounds at maturity and 32 to 34
inches tall at the withers. This is
for registered donkeys. Pets can
vary a bit from this. These little
guys are hardy and healthy, but
do need basic shots and worm-
ing, just like other equines. Many
miniature donkeys are completely
trustworthy around small children
and the elderly. Small children can
ride them and they can be trained
to pull a cart or carry a pack, as
they have for centuries.
The Web site of the National
Miniature Donkey Association,
with great information is www.
nmdaasset.com arid there you
will find such things as donkey
rescue organizations worldwide.
The donkeys are easy keepers.
Ms. Gibson said she only feeds
grain to a few of hers right now,
maybe a quarter of a scoop a day.
"I'm hoping more people learn
about them, Says Ms. Gibson.
"They are relatively rare in Florida
and to show them you have to
travel to Georgia or Texas."

Revisions to the district school board's policy on student retention and promotion for 2007 2008
Intensive Reading
For each year in which a student scores at Level 1 on the FCAT Reading, the student must be enrolled in and complete
an intensive reading course the following year. Placement of Level 2 readers in either an intensive reading course or a
content area course in which reading strategies are delivered shall be determined by diagnosis of reading needs.
Physical Education Requirement
Students participating in interscholastic sports at the junior varsity or varsity level for 2 years who pass the Florida
Department of Education developed test in personal fitness are exempt from the one-credit PE requirement Students
completing one semester of marching band, physical activity class with marching band activities, or dance shall satisfy
the personal fitness requirement or adaptive PE under an IEP or 504 plan.
Major Area of Interest
Beginning with students entering high school in the 2007-2008 school year, graduation requirements Include enrollment
in a major area of interest, comprised of four (4) credits (Section 1003.428, Florida Statutes).
Performance Based Credit
Grading procedure: All students taking a Performance Based Credit (PBC) class will be issued progress updates, final
grades, and credit as follows:
.interim reports will reflect progress update, indicating the number of modules completed, and the number of modules
available In the specific course assigned.
*Fjnal grades will be submitted to the guidance counselor, using the PBC completion form, upon the successful comple-
tion of all modules with mastery assessment grades of at least 70% or higher.
Special Diploma Option 2
The intent of Special Diploma Option 2 is to provide graduation incentives to those ESE students who have not been
successful in a traditional schoollacademic setting and /or are considered "at risk" of dropping out of school. Historically,
this population of ESE students has not been successful in earning high school credits for either a Standard Diploma or
a Special Diploma Option 1. Option 2 is designed for ESE students who would benefit from an individually designed,
community-based job preparatory program. Option 2 is also designelt to increase the value of school attendance with
age appropriate students. The intent of Option 2 is to prepare the ESE student for the transition from school to work and
independent living that will continue after graduation. To be considered for Option 2 an ESE student would typically have
attended a minimum of four semesters in a high school level program.
An ESE student may choose Option 2 atany time after the completion their ninth grade year. Graduation will only be
possible for students from ages 16-22. The transition IEP team members must verify that the student has met all the
community and employment competencies documented on the Individual Graduation Plan prior to awarding a Special
Diploma under Option 2. The student/parenUlguardian must provide transportation to and from the job site. The District
shall not provide transportation to and from the job site for a Special Diploma Option 2 student
The Florida Student Performance Standards that have been developed for various exceptionalities and established by
the Glades County School District are replaced in Option 2 by community and employment competencies.
1, Both sets of competencies are developed and documented during the transition IEP. The ESE student must
demonstrate mastery of the following:
*Student performance standards for the ESE vocational course in which the student is enrolled
*Community and employment competencies developed and documented during the transition IEP
2. Community and employment competencies specified in the Individual Graduation Plan
The Individual Graduation Plan will be developed and signed by the student, parent/guardian, ESE teacher, and employ-
er prior to placement in employment and implementation of Option 2. The plan will identify the following:
*Expected community and employment competencies;
*Critera for determining and certifying mastery of the competencies;
*Work schedule and minimum number of hours to be worked per week;
*Description of the supervision to be provided by School District s)aff.
3. The student must be employed in a community-based Job where the employer:
*Has a Federal Employer Identification number
*Provides the student opportunities to interact with non-disabled co-workers
*Adheres to the requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act and Child Labor Laws
.Offers opportunities for advancement
The number of hours of work per week must be specified on the Individual Graduation Plan. The minimum length of time
for employment prior to receiving a Special Diploma under Option 2 shall be one full semester.
A graduation exit meeting will occur when the student has demonstrated mastery of the community and employment
competencies that were documented on the Individual Graduation Plan. Mastery of the community and employment
competentles outlined on the Individual Graduation Plan and any other related information must be verified before an
Option 2 diploma can be awarded.

Clewiston Tigers hope to have a statement season


By Naji Tobias
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Clewiston Ti-
gers head coach Larry Antonacci
knew that the majority of the play-
ers from last season's Class 2A
state runner up team have gradu-
ated and moved on to college. He
has now implemented a unique


approach for this season: teach-
ing his players to be mentally in-
corporated in games.
"The mentality of the game is
important," said Coach Antonac-
ci. "The players must learn the
fundamentals of the games and
must know their assignments, as
well as the what-ifs and whys of
the game of football."

INI/Naji Tobias
On Thursday, Aug. 9, after Clewiston Tigers' players finished
the seven-minute run, their head coach Larry Antonacci had
them walk across the field non-stop for several more minutes
to cool down. Here is Clewiston Tigers lineman Alex Rubio
cooling down after the run.
AI16


In the words of Clewiston Tigers head coach Larry Antonacci
during the players' seven minute run: "Don't stop!"


The head coach realizes that
many of his players are physically
gifted; including the likes of junior
running back Darris Hughes and
senior tight end/defensive end
Delvin Hughes. But the coach
added, the physical aspect of the
game is easier to grasp than the
mental part of it because the play-
ers need to know what to do and
how to do it.
"Too many people tell the kids
what to do without explaining to
them why," said the head coach.
Coach Antonacci wants his
players to show confidence on the
football field during practices and
games. If Coach Antonacci sees if
the player is displaying confidence
and understanding what the play
or formation is, he knows.
"Too many kids play with their
bodies and not their minds," said
Coach Antonacci. "Put them to-
gether, then you'll have some-
thing."
According to him, accountabil-
ity comes into play through this
joining.
"It teaches players not to make
excuses for their mistakes," said
Coach Antonacci. "You must get
beyond your mind and get to the
reality of the situation. If they're
able to get their minds right, then
that's half the battle right there."
The coach is adamant that this
way of thinking will reduce mis-
takes during practices and espe-
cially in games.
"A lot of mistakes are made be-
cause the kids don't know what
to do or what they're assignments
are and that's critical," said Coach
Antonacci. "I want my coaches
to break down anything that they
teach, all the way down to the
basics. I want the players to learn
from the ground up.
When it comes to winning
games this season, Coach An-
tonacci wants the players to un-
derstand that if they take pride in
what they have, they will want to
be the best at what they do.
Here is the 2007 season sched-

the state. It is a distribution cen-
ter for 1.5 million gallons of wa-
ter, 65,000 shelf-stable meals,
helicopter pads, and 10 acres of
parking for supply trucks. From
there, emergency supplies can be
transported to every region in the
state.
Even though this is impressive,
it does not address the immediate
needs of Glades County whose of-
ficials expressed concern about
U.S. 27 serving as the major evac-


uation route for the southern ur-
ban population of the state. What
will happen if the county should
become a major site of stranded
evacuees?
Bob Jones, public safety direc-
tor, reported to Ms. Adams that
the major emergency hub for the
county is in a small office in an 80-
year-old building.
"We need a public safety-type
complex. The major highway
splits us up and we are spread
out," said Mr. Jones referring to
the two ambulance stations and
seven volunteer fire districts that
provide fire/rescue for 832 square


miles of rural Glades County.
Suzanne Adams suggested
seeking more funding through
grants.
"We can get grants but it is
never enough to finish a job," said
Angela Snow, emergency man-
agement director.
Ms. Snow went on to explain
that after a grant is awarded,
there are not enough other funds
to complete a project. Then the
grant money has to be returned.
"All I can do is take your con-
cerns back to Tallahassee," said
Ms. Adams.

MHES open house
Aug. 16 was open house at Moore Haven Elementary School. The large entranceway had
a table set up for each grade level, and other information centers.


Fire
Continued From Page 1
Jones, chairman; Wendell Taylor,
county manager; Larry Hilton,
deputy county manager; and
Richard Pringle, county attorney.
Contract agreements with engi-
neering firms will not exceed the
grant amount.
The board considered a con-
tract with Last .Chance Mine,
owned by Dean Daniels and Kel-
vin Townsend. The sand mine is
in Charlotte County; however,
the only ingress and egress to
the mine operation is on Glades
County roads.
The mine's dump trucks would
travel through the Muse area and
there are concerns about damage
to roadways. The proposed con-
tract with Last Chance Mine will
be further researched by County
Attorney Pringle in order to ad-
dress possible road damage and
recovery costs.
The Glades County Economic
Development Council suggested
that a Tourist Development Coun-
cil be chosen to work on a tour-
ism plan. After.a plan is created
it may be referred to voters in a
referendum. The board agreed to
participate and appoint a coun-
cil. Tourism Development Coun-
cil members are Moore Haven
mayor, Bret Whidden; county
commissioner, Paul Beck; Da-
vid Dannenhauer, Patty Register,
Dave Ferguson, Bob Joyner and
Bill Redman.
Commissioner Robert Giesler
reported that the roof on the
Buckhead Ridge Homeowners As-
sociation building is leaking badly.
and has had numerous patches.
The board decided to approve Mr.
Giesler's request and accepted a
proposal for just under $20,000 by
Ted Starr Construction.
Commissioner Russell Echols
proposed that Glades County re-
vamp and rent the old county jail


INI/Nena Bolan
Glades County public safety and volunteer fire departments
were recognized by the board of county commissioners on
Aug. 14. Buckhead Ridge Fire Chief Tom Vallee accepts an
award plaque given to the BHR fire, department by county
commissioner Bob Giesler. To see more photos of these
awards go to photos.newszap.com


to Glades Correctional Develop-
ment Corporation (GCDC). The
facility could be used to house fe-
male inmates and juvenile detain-
ees. The new jail is already filled
up, but a separate housing unit
for females and juveniles would'
provide more room.
"I think it is a very good idea,"


said Sheriff Stuart Whiddon of the
proposal.
The board granted Russell
Echol's request that the county
consult professionals on the costs
of remodeling the old jail and to
see if the plans are feasible.

During open house there were activities available for students and their families to work
on together. Alexis and Tom complete a project together.


Proposal
Continued From Page 1
County commissioners meeting,
a resolution was passed by the
board to support the proposal to
name U.S. 27 as part of the Na-
tional Purple Heart Trail.
The resolution was drafted
through the efforts of K.S. Butch
Jones, chairman. It mentions that
there are an estimated 500,000 liv-
ing veterans who are Purple Heart
recipients.
U.S. 27 begins in Miami and
ends at the Michigan/Canadian
border. Supporters hope that the
entire length of the highway will
be part of the Purple Heart Trail.

Tobacco
Continued From Page 1
co products like cigarettes and
smokeless *tobacco (snuff and
chewing tobacco).
SWAT teens will learn that us-
ing tobacco has social, economic
and cosmetic consequences. It
has a direct and detrimental affect
on health of the user and if used
during pregnancy it has a harm-
ful effect on the fetus. An addic-
tive substance, the nicotine found
in tobacco can cause powerful
withdrawal symptoms when us-
ers try to stop, according to health
science.
The SWAT program also en-
Scourages teens to support friends
and family who are trying to stop
using tobacco and to ask others
to not start smoking cigarettes or
using smokeless tobacco.
Students will also learn to spot
marketing ploys that may be used
to influence them to try tobacco
and to seek community resources
when attempting to resist or quit
its use.
Angelica Pena reports that a
10 year anniversary for SWAT
is planned throughout counties
across Florida and an event is
planned in LaBelle on Aug. 25 at
Barron Park starting at 10 a.m.
Former students who were
pioneers of Students Working
against Tobacco will be on hand
to talk to young people and new
members.
Displays and other prepara-
tions are in progress to make this
a fun and informative event.
For more information call Ms.
Pena at (863) 946-0707.

' .1 I New director vows to double advocates for abused kids

Hospital Auxiliary


seeks volunteers


CLEWISTON Bored too
much time on your hands? Tired
of Soap Operas or TV Sports? Get
Involved -- volunteer as a Hendry
Regional Medical Center Auxiliary
Member!
You can get a break from the
hum-drum of your daily routine
by getting out of the house for at
least four hours a week and giving
some time to your community.
Hendry Regional Medical Center
is looking for men and women
who would like to volunteer their
services to the hospital Auxiliary.
Although most of volunteer's
time is spent in the gift shop, the
Auxiliary provides assistance in


other departments as well. They
may be seen putting patient charts
together, offering directions, de-
livering flowers or making copies.
The Auxiliary uses the proceeds.
from the gift shop to make pur-
chases for the hospital. In prior
years, purchases, have included
surgical blood pressure monitors,
bed-chairs for family members,
hospital and laboratory equip-
ment, lobby furnitur-, anrd more.
For more inliorriation, stop
by the hospital gift shop for an
application or call Sheila Whitt,
the HRMC Auxiliary President, at
(863) 509-0118.


He's just arrived from the
frontline of leading child abuse
investigators. He speaks two lan-
guages.
He's on a mission to double
child advocate volunteers in Lee,
Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and
Glades counties to enable 100
percent of abused children to
have their voices heard in court
and the community.
Frank Prado has smoothly
moved into the Twentieth Guard-
ian ad Litem Circuit's Director
chair leading the local 5-county
Guardian Ad Litem Program and
he's already begun program-
matic changes designed to sup-
port current Guardian ad Litem
volunteers' advocacy for abused
children.
"Every day our Guardian ad
Litem volunteers and Program
staff work to provide competent.
and proactive representation for
abused children with the goal of
moving a child out of a kind of
'personal limbo' in foster care
and into a permanent family -- as
quickly as possible."
The Guardian ad Llerri Pro-
gram advocates for the e-l Itier-
est of children who are alleged I,
be abused, neglected, or aban-
doned and who are in\.: l\ed in
court proceedings. Program rep-
resentatives, including Pio:,iiarrn
staff, certified lay volunteers and
pro bono attorneys, xc6rk as a
team becoming familiar, rith [he
child and the child's ca-i and
making recommendations o t, the
court to help ensure a sate, car-
ing. stable and permanent en\i-
ronment for the child. Guardian
ad Litem volunteers ,wo)rk w'iltl
various community palineis to:
ensure that the child is receiving
the assistance and support need-
ed th SIUCC:t_,J.
"During the past year, we've


doubled our Lee County volun-
teer child advocates," said Mr.
Prado, married and father of two,
"it's a start, but it's not enough.
We still need to once again dou-
ble our current volunteer num-
bers to serve 100% of abused
children. But, while we're getting
the word out that we need many
volunteers, I am working to build
an even stronger support staff
for volunteers and better tools to
help them be more effective."
This week, Alicia Guerra be-
came the Managing Attorney for
the Guardian ad Litem Program.
Ms. Guerra, known for her ag-
gressive representation of chil-
dren with the Guardian ad Litem
Program in Charlotte and Volusia
Counties, reflects the Statewide
Guardian ad Litem Program's
call within its own attorney ranks
to take an even more proactive
stance in representing children --
and to begin recruiting pro bono
attorneys to join the team.
It's a BIG job! In June, 18 kids
came into care in Hendry Coun-

tor for the five county Guard-
ian Ad Litem program.


ty -- with 95 entering from Lee.
Without a Guardian ad Litem
volunteer to represent their best
interests, half of these children
won't have their voice heard in
court or the community.
Mr. Prado invites anyone inter-
ested in volunteering, or more in-
formation, to call toll-free, state-


wide 1-866-341-1GAL to reach
their local Guardian ad Litem
(GAL) office.

Glades Area Red Cross and Nisbet Enterprises teamed up to
help prepare the communities for emergencies. Left to right
are Steve Nisbet, Jr., Debbie McDuffie, Steve Nisbet, Sr.


McDonald's and Red

Cross form partnership


WEST PALM BEACH The
Glades Area Branch of the Ameri-
can Red Cross Greater Palm
Beach Area Chapter joined Hen-
dry County Emergency Manage-
ment and the Fire Departments in
LaBelle, Clewiston and Western
Palm Beach County to hand out
preparedness information bags at
Nisbet Enterprise, Inc. owned Mc-
Donald's locations. Information
bags were stuffed with brochures
including a checklist of supplies
that should be included in a disas-
ter supply kit, how to purify water
in the event of water contamina-
tion and tips on preparing a fam-
ily disaster plan. Nearly 600 bags
we handed out over the course of
three days at three different Mc-
Donald's locations in Belle Glade,
Clewiston and LaBelle.
Debbie McDuffie, Glades Area
Branch Manager, said "Partner-
ing with Nisbet Enterprises has
allowed us the opportunity to
provide the community of Belle
Glade, Clewiston and LaBelle
with timely hurricane prepared-
ness information."
In addition to allowing the
Red Cross to hand-out informa-
tion to customers, Nisbet Enter-
prises also donated 5 percent of
net proceeds for the day to the
Red Cross, a total of $1,223. The


money raised will go to help the
Glades Area in the event of a hur-
ricane or other disaster.
Steve Nisbet, Sr., Owner of Nis-
bet Enterprises said "It is always
wonderful to give back to the
community, the information the
Red Cross provides is critical and
we are glad to be able to help."
The Red Cross recommends
three actions that everyone should
take to be prepared for disasters:
Get a Kit -- Including water
(one gallon per person per day),
food, flashlights; first aid kits,
medications, radio, tools, cloth-
ing, personal items, sanitary sup-
plies, money, contact information
and pet supplies.
Make a Plan -- Discuss a disas-
ter plan with your family, choose
two places to meet, know how to
turn off your utilities and practice
your plan.
Be Informed -- Learn what di-
sasters or emergencies may occur
in your community, identify how
you will receive your information,
and contact the Red Cross about
disaster and CPR/First Aid train-
ing.
For more information about
preparing in the event of a hurri-
cane or other disaster, please call
(888) 237-7408 or visit www.red-
cross-pbc.org.

derful experience. Can't wait to
be a part of future classes."

formative and interesting. Well
done,"

hearing is filed pursuant to the provisions of 120.569 and 120,57 of the Florida
statutes, before the deadline for filing a petition. The procedures for petitioning
for a hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed
permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain
the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Of-
fice of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florda 32399-3000.
Petitions by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be filed within 21
days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions filed' by any persons other than
these entitled to witten notice under section 120.60(3) o the Florida Statutes
must be filed within 21 days of publication of the notice or within 21 days of re-
ceipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first.
In accordance with rule 62 110.106(3), Florida Administrative Code, petitions for an
administrative hearing by the applicant must be filed within 21 days of receipt of
such notice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicat-
ed above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request
for mediation within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that
person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a pro-
ceeding initiated by another party) will be only at.the discretion of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with rule 28-106.205 of the Flori-
da Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is
based must contain the following information:
a. The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the Department
permit identification number and the county in which the subject matter or activity
is located;
b. A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the
Department action;

the same information as set forth above, V required by rule 28-106.301.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that he Department's final action may be dif-
ferent from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial in-
terests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right
to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the require-
ments set forth above.
In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pur-
sue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a
mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (Le. the applicant, the De-
partment, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hear-
ing). The agreement must contain all the information required by rule
28-106.404. The agreement must be received by the clerk in the Office of Gener-
al Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000 within ten days after the deadline for filing a pe-
tition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to
a hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement.
As provided in section 120.573 of the Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all
parties to mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by sections 120.569 and
120.57 for holding an administrative hearing and issuing a final order Unless
otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty
days of the execution of the agreement. (f mediation results In settlement of the
administrative dispute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating the
agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial interests
that would be affected by such a modified final decision must file their petitions

The religious rights of students


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian
Church, Clewiston
As a new School Year begins
there is something that parents,
school officials and students need
to know. The following is a list
of activities that today are legally
permissible for Christian students
in public schools.
Students in every state are
free to personally express them-
selves in prayer, such as before a
meal, a sporting event, or a test.
Students may read the Bible
or other devotional material dur-
ing free-reading times or study
halls.
Students may use note-
books, pencils and other material
with religious logos or sayings,


including Bible verses.
Christian messages on T-
shirts, other clothing, or jewelry
may be worn unless there is a
school uniform requirement that
applies equally to everyone. For
example, it is a violation of a stu-
dent's free-speech for a principal
to require that a student turn his
pro-life T-shirt inside out while at
school.
Students may write book re-
ports, present speeches, prepare
show-and-tell displays, or do art-
work using religious themes, pro-
vided such assignments closely
follow the teacher's instruction.
For example, when an assign-
ment calls for students to bring
in their favorite book to read to
the class, a teacher must permit


a Christian student to read from
the Christian book they describe
as their favorite.
Religious viewpoints may
be shared as part of general class
discussions when appropriate to
the topic.
Equal access to school news-
papers must be given to Christian
students on the same basis as
is given to students with a non-
Christian point of view.
Students may sing religious
music in a general concert pro-
gram; such music is not devotion-
al in a concert setting but has gen-
eral historical and cultural value.
Students may gather on their
own time for devotions before or
after the school day.
Students may distribute


Christian literature to fellow
students or teachers on school
grounds outside class hours.
Voluntary, student-initiated
Bible clubs meet on public sec-
ondary school premises during
non-instructional time if other
non-curriculum related student
groups are also permitted to
meet.
In Louisiana, Mississippi,
Texas and Utah a student volun-
teer may deliver nonsectarian
and non-proselytizing invocations
and benedictions at public high
school graduation ceremonies.
All over this country, a stu-
dent may speak of God and may
offer a prayer in an nonsectarian
and non-proselytizing way in a
student address at graduation.


Claiming forward progress in life


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Football season is upon us!
Growing up, I loved to play the
game! One of my favorite nick-
names during my football days
as a lineman was "Stonewall".
Someone once commented that
running into me was like run-
ning into a stone wall. The name
stuck.
SI know that some of you are
avid football. fans and some of
you don't really understand the
fascination of the sport. I read an
article a while back that reported
that a lot of women and some
men wished they could share
their spouse's enthusiasm for
football, but they couldn't under-
stand the game. Well, I'm going to
try to help save some marriages
by explaining one of the more im-
portant rules of football, the rule
of "forward progress."
'In football, the object of the
game is to get the ball from one
end of the field to the other, thus


scoring a goal. Imagine a football
player running up the field .with
the ball, heading toward his goal.
He has only gone a few yards
when he runs,.
into "Stonewall '
Hicks". Instead
of tackling the '.. I
football player
right there, ..
Stonewall sort "
of lifts him up :. .,"
off the ground ,. .
and pushes him John
back beyond the Hicks
place where he .
started. It might look like a terrible
loss, but because of a rule called
"forward progress", the referee-
places the ball at the point where
the football player first met Stone-
wall. So, instead of being a loss,
it's actually a gain.
You might be wondering what
all this has to do with us. Well,
in life, as in football, we strive to
attain a goal. Both life and foot-
ball have rules and we have to
play by those rules. The rules of


football may seem complicated,
but the rules of life are infinitely
more complex. Still, life has a rule
very similar to the rule of forward
progress in football. Many times
we work hard, we develop a
game plan, and we start to carry
the ball up the field. We see the
goal posts in sight, then blam!
Something happens. We run into'
a brick wall or an obstacle that
sets us back. Things don't go the
way we had planned, the way we
had hoped. We get pushed back,
shaken down .and roughed up by
the opposition. It may even ap-
pear that we are thrown for a loss.
But actually, we are not. The Ref-
eree is watching the game closely
and He's going to give us credit,
for the progress we made. That's
forward progress in life!
Just like in football and life, the'
church has goals. Jesus outlined
6ne of our major'goalswhen He
instructed His followers to, "Go,
make disciples of all nations, bap-
tizing them in the name of the Fa-
ther and of the Son and of the Holy


Spirit and teach them to obey ev-
erything that I have commanded
you." That's what we are about.
In the end, everything we do must
to be held up to that goal making
disciples for Jesus Christ.
The thing to remember in all
of this is not to get discouraged.
Things may be tough. We may not
have the growth we envisioned,
but we need to remember that we
are still in the game. For a time we
may need to rely on forward prog-
ress: gaining a few yards, being
pushed back, gaining a few more
and being pushed back again. For
a time, we may even be thrown
for a temporary loss but we
have the promise that all things
will work for the good of them
that love the Lord, for those who
are called according to His name.
(Romans 8:28)
Therefore, we are still contend-
ers! Let us not loose sight of the
game plan or He that is in control
of the game! In all things, let us
press on to goal of our high call-
ing in Christ Jesus!


Does size matter? Big churches and little churches


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
As I was seeking informa-
tion about a bill I received, I was
asked for an identifying number.
After giving a
telephone num-
ber, an account
number, there ;
still was an- '
other number
needed before
the person at
the company of-
fice would talk Samuel S.
to, me about my Thomas
account. There
was a time when my name would
have been sufficient, but things
have gotten much more imper-
sonal and numbers-oriented. I
went by my name in high school,
but had my first student number
when I enrolled in college. When
I enrolled in seminary, my name
was sufficient. Later, in graduate
school, I was given another stu-
dent number. One school used
social security numbers; that was
before there were identity theft
problems that are common now.
After graduations, I'd need to
write for transcripts from time to
time and schools would ask for my


student number if I remembered
it after all of those years. Not so
with the seminary; my name and
date. of graduation was sufficient.
The difference was that the semi-
nary was a small school and the
universities were big ones.
For a longtime, I would be
able to call the seminary and be
remembered; could ask about an
old professor and learn what was
going on. It was something per-
sonal, something special; some-
thing possible because we were
small in numbers and not as "insti-
tutionalized." I finished an article
on the tendency today toward big
churches; some call them "mega-
churches" with membership in
the' thousands. It seems that.no
sooner do people get involved in
such churches, than they're intro-
duced to a smaller group within
the large one, or become part of
a small fellowship, or a church-
within-a-church.
My seminary had about 25
students in our graduating class.
My high school had around 600
and the universities numbered in
the thousands. The small school
experience was different; it in-
volved being part of a community
as well as gathering up credits. It
involved working together rather
than competing with other stu-


dents. We would study as a group
and if we had a problem the night
before the test, we could call the
professor for some pointers or
clarifications.
Small numbers brought an.
appreciation for the gifts of each
member, the ability to collabo-
rate without competing, sharing
a common joy of victory when
we accomplished something to-
gether.
Over the years, I've served both
large and small congregations;
the largest being around fourteen
hundred persons and the small-,
est numbering about fifty mem-
bers. One had more resources;
the other had greater intimacy,
family feeling; the capacity to be
personal.
One church was good at ac-
complishing tasks; the other at
helping people in their daily lives.
My big-church experiences were
often devoted to groups and orga-
nizations, dealing with problems
having time constraints, putting
out "brush fires" and being more
of an administrator than pastor.
One day, I found myself in
a small church. People would
come and visit and I didn't have to
worry about their "interruptions"
if we went on a long time, or I
could visit and not worry about


pushing things out, of my sched-
ule'to get back to a meeting or to
share in a group.
Looking back; I've spent most
of my time in smaller churches
and I thank God for them. I've
learned that "bigger isn't always
better" and numbers don't auto-
matically mean happiness or sal-
vation. *
One writer told about' the ex-
perience people had with early
aircraft sitting outside at airports.
There were problems with hu-
midity and moisture and static
electricity. The solution was to
build hangers. Soon the hangers
got bigger and bigger. Soon they
were so big that clouds formed
in them; and with the clouds
came moisture and humidity and
static electricity! There must have
been something special about
Jesus calling only twelve dis-
ciples. He didn't seem to worry
about numbers or large buildings
or an achievement orientation.
Rather, the disciples went out and
touched lives, and things grew be-
yond their wildest imaginations.
There is something very spe-
cial about a small Church or small
community or small group or
class. Part of it is the very personal
nature of it all; to me, that can be
down right "religious."
