Lifesaving devices i


Ten defibrillators
acquired by GCSO
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- It is now
possible for a county deputy to
aid someone with sudden car-
diac arrest before EMS has had
time to arrive for the emergency.
Many times a county deputy
will be the first person to come
to the scene of an emergency.
The EMS/rescue vehicle may
have a longer drive since the


county has a spread out land-
scape and a small population.
A resident could possibly be
saved with the use of new au-
tomated external defibrillators
(ADE) that will be carried in ten
of the county's patrol cars, ac-
cording to Glades County Sheriff
Stuart Whiddon.
ADEs are electronic portable
devices which diagnose a car-
diac arrest and administer an
electric jolt which lets the heart
re-start a normal rhythm.
Properly trained non-medical
personnel can let the machine


evaluate and treat the situation.
Florida laws encourage the
broad public use of AEDs.
These lifesaving devices have
become a recent medical emer-
gency tool.
Deputies who have been is-
sued an AED will receive train-
ing from the EMS department
on proper handling and usage in
case of an emergency.
County deputies have already
been trained as First Responders
in order to help residents in case
EMS is delayed due to long dis-
tances.


n patrn

Sheriff Whiddon mentioned
in a press release he is confident
that by deploying these devices
successfully throughout the cov-
erage area of Glades County,
lives can be saved.
Funding for the AEDs was ob-
tained with grants from Florida
Department of Health.
Even though the devices cost
$2,000, they were obtained at no
charge to the county.
During the grant application
process, public safety director,
Bob Jones, indicated the proj-
ect would be a success due to

Rodeo tradition thrives locally


Five Star Rodeo
headquarters
are in Brighton
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
BRIGHTON -- Rodeo sport
has grown significantly in pop-
ularity since rodeo cowboys
formed professional associa-
tions in the early 90s. Its appeal
stems back to America's fron-
tier days. There are rodeo ath-
letes and fans from Hawaii to
northern Canada to Brazil; and
Five Star Rodeo company in-
tends to keep the sport thriving
in Florida.


Paul Bowers Jr. and Marty
Johns have operated Five Star
Rodeo for almost two years.
They attended rodeos when
they were little kids, and en-
tered events at a young age.
Both agree that to be in this
business you must have a keen
interest in animals and their
proper care. The livestock is
carefully selected and tended
since they are the main attrac-
tion.
They compare the breeding,
nurturing and selection of ro-
deo stock to the sophistication
of the cutting horse and race
horse business. They attend
bucking stock sales, livestock
markets and place bids. Some-


times a rancher contacts them
whenever a horse is determined
to buck even after saddle train-
ing. The livestock must meet
their expectations before they
make a purchase, and bulls
must have that rodeo-look be-
fore they make their selections.
Bowers and Johns may pay up
to $20,000 for a bull if he is the
right one.
According to Paul Bowers
Jr., it is a lot harder to find re-
ally good bucking horses. He
looks for the bigger horses that
stand 16 hands or more, and
weigh 1,000 pounds and up.
An observer can tell some have

the close working relationship
between law enforcement per-
sonnel and emergency service
personnel.
Being a First Responder in a
fiscally constrained county with
a large geographic area has
many challenges due to a limited
budget.
The local government contin-
ues looking for ways to shorten
the fiscal gaps.
Public safety and law enforce-
ment workers wear many hats in
order to get the job done.

Walk to


live well,


exercise

Start Walk begins
May
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- Many
residents struggle with high
blood pressure, diabetes and
heart disease. Sometimes a per-
son's age, ancestry or environ-
ment can contribute to these
and other ailments.
The Glades County Health
Department, located in Moore
Haven, is a local agency that is
sometimes overlooked by peo-
ple who want to change their
lifestyle, or improve their overall
health. Angelica Pena can help
you with your choices and ques-
tions about feeling better. She is
the department's representative
for chronic disease issues.
Recently, Glades County
Health Department approved a
program begun by the Ameri-
can Heart Association. The Start
Walking month begins in May
and features the importance of
walking more and living longer.
"The theme highlights the
simplest form of physical activity
that can be done by almost any-
one who wants to start improv-
ing their health," said Ms. Pena.
Physical inactivity is associat-
ed with several chronic illnesses
and is a major factor in the rise of
heart disease, which is the num-
ber one killer in this country. The
majority of Americans do not
get the recommended amount
of exercise that will benefit their
lifestyle and possibly increase
longevity.
According to Ms. Pena, 44

Africanized bees,



subjects of reports


GAINESVILLE-Florida agricul-
ture will be featured on "Farm
Bureau Reports" on RFD-TV at
6:30 p.m. on April 23 and April
30. On April 23, the program will
focus on Africanized bees and the
challenges they continue to pose
for Florida beekeepers, the agri-
culture industry and the general
public ,.
4tinAril 30, the program will
profile Butler Oaks Farm in Lorida
and Tampa Wholesale Nursery in
Dover.
The Africanized honey bee
population has grown and will
continue to grow in Florida due
to its numerous pathways into
the state and the lack of effec-
tive eradication products or tech-
niques.
The April 23 program shows
how the Florida Department of
Agriculture, in cooperation with
other agricultural stakeholders, is
developing the tools to protect the
beekeeping industry and educate
the public on how to live with
this potentially dangerous insect.
Although all honey bees will sting
when their nest is threatened by
invaders, African bees defend
their nests with less provocation,
in greater numbers and for longer
distances than their cousins, the
docile European honey bees that
we have in the U.S.
The April 30, program will pro-
file two winners of Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson's Environmental Leader-
ship Awards.
Robert L. "Bob" Butler's dairy
farm is located on the Kissim-
mee River, which feeds into Lake
Okeechobee.
By adopting extraordinary
measures to reduce phosphorus
runoff from his dairy, Butler has


helped improve the quality of wa-
ter entering the lake. Butler has
reconfigured his water manage-
ment system to capture and con-
tain virtually all his surface Water
runoff for reuse on the farm.
Also profiled will be Tampa
Wholesale Nursery, a family op-
eration in Dover founded by Roy
Davis. Currently, Tampa Whole-
sale Nursery raises 6e9b 120 '1
ferent varieties of plants,,Ifrom,
ground covers to shade trees,
shipping more than 300,000
plants throughout the Southeast
each year.
The nursery re-uses treated
wastewater piped from Tampa
Bay Fisheries, one of the largest
seafood packaging companies in
the United States.
The 30-minute programs are
produced by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consum-
er Services for the weekly series,
"Farm Bureau Reports" on RFD-
TV as part of an outreach cam-
paign to increase public aware-
ness of agriculture, the state's
second-largest industry.
The campaign focuses on the
message, "Safe, Affordable and
Abundant: Food for Thought
from Florida's Farmers." It is a
joint effort of Florida Farm Bureau
and the Florida Department of Ag-
riculture.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 140,000 member-fam-
ilies statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an
independent, nonprofit agricul-
tural organization.

ida Farm Bureau is available on

Married homeowners



offered tax relief


TALLAHASSEE-Legislation
to eliminate an arcane feature
in Florida Law which penal-
izes Floridians who marry ho-
meowners passed a key house
committee today and is headed
for a full vote before the Florida
House of Representatives.
The measure, House Bill 647
by Representative Matt Hudson
(R-Naples) would put an end to
the practice of assessing a new
documentary stamp tax upon
the addition of the name of a
spouse to an existing deed.
"This bill ends unfair double
taxation of homeowners who
get married," said Representa-
tive Hudson.
"As the law stands, if a Flo-
ridian marries a homeowner
and adds his or her name to the


deed held by their spouse, they
pay what is in essence a mar-
riage tax.
"Yet the tax does not apply
when a spouse is removed from
a deed. The state is rewarding di-
vorce and penalizing marriage.
"This common sense mea-
sure won't solve all our property
tax problems, but it is good pub-
lic policy and a small step in the
right direction toward restoring
fairness to our current property
tax system," added Rep. Hud-
son
On a new home worth
$300,000 and with a $240,000
mortgage, the tax savings would
be $840.
HB 647 now heads to a vote
before the full House.

Water restrictions begin across the South Flori<


Revised Emergency
Water Restrictions
Start Friday

West Palm Beach, FL Modifi-
cations to the South Florida Water
Management District's (SFWMD)
emergency water restrictions will
become effective Friday, April 18,
when most of the agency's 16-
county region transitions from
one-day-week residential land-
scape irrigation restrictions to up
to two-day-a-week watering.
The District's nine-member
Governing Board last week ad-
opted a "Modified Phase II Severe
Water Shortage Order" based on
improved regional water resource
conditions. Under the District's
emergency authority, decisions
to implement and modify water
shortage restrictions are resource-
based.
The new schedule for land-
scape watering will continue con-
serving water supplies as part of
the District's response to the re-
gional rainfall deficit. Landscape
irrigation accounts for up to half
of all household water consump-
tion in Florida.


The District implemented one-
day-a-week restrictions region-
wide in January for the first time
in the agency's history, based on
extreme water shortage condi-
tions and a continued rainfall defi-
cit of close to 25 inches.
SFWMD Governing Board
Chairman Eric Buermann said
last week, "It's important to note
that we are not lifting emergency
restrictions. Our decision to mod-
ify the restrictions is based on the
improved conditions of our wpter
resources."
Although the revised land-
scape irrigation restrictions go
into effect April 18, the SFWMD
is encouraging local governments
to refrain from enforcement until
Thursday, May 1. The goal is to
provide residents with sufficient
time to become aware of the
changes and adjust timers or oth-
er components of their residential
irrigation systems.
The modified mandatory re-
strictions apply to all water from
traditional sources, including wa-
ter from public utilities, private
wells, canals, ponds and lakes.
Highlights of the Modified
Phase II Water Shortage Order


Residents and businesses of
Broward, Collier, Miami-Dade,
Monroe, St. Lucie and coastal
areas of Lee, Martin and Palm
Beach counties, including the City
of West Palm Beach, are limited
to a two-day-per-week landscape
irrigation schedule with two "wa-
tering windows":
Odd street addresses may ir-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Wednesday and Saturdays from
12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m.
to 11:59 p.m.
Even street addresses may ir-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Thursday and Sundays from 12
a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m. to
11:59 p.m.
Hand-watering with one hose
fitted with an automatic shut-off
nozzle is allowed for 10 minutes
per day for landscape stress relief
and to prevent plant die-off. Addi-
tional watering days and times are
allocated for the establishment of
new lawns and landscapes.

No restrictions apply to other
outside water uses, such as for
car and boat washing, pressure
cleaning of paved surfaces, deco-
rative fountains and water-based
recreation (e.g. swimming pools,
water slides).


Landscape irrigation using
100-percent reclaimed water is al-
lowed any day except Friday, from
12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or from 4
p.m. to 11:59 p.m.
Golf courses must reduce their
allocated water use by 30 per-
cent.
Because jurisdiction in certain
counties is shared with other wa-
ter management districts, the SF-
WMD has coordinated with these
agencies to simplify implementa-
tion and enforcement:

Recreational Water Illness Prevention Week


The week of May 19 to 25, has
been designated as National Rec-
reational Water Illness Prevention
Week.
The goal of this year's recogni-
tion is to highlight the importance
of healthy swimming behaviors
in preventing recreational water
illnesses. State and local health
departments across the country
investigated more RWI outbreaks
in 2007 than ever before. This
upsurge is being driven by an
increase in the number of RWI
outbreaks caused by Cryptospo-
ridium ("Crypto"), a chlorine re-
sistant parasite, and is primarily as-


sociated with treated recreational
water venues, such as pools and
water parks. CDC has received at
least 18 preliminary reports on
such outbreaks for 2007. Remem-
ber, even a well maintained pool
can transmit Crypto.
Awareness of recreational wa-
ter illnesses and healthy swim-
ming behaviors play an important
role in stopping transmission of
RWIs. Germs on and in swim-
mers' bodies can end up in the.
water and can make other people
sick. Even healthy swimmers
can get sick from RWls, but the
young, elderly, pregnant women


and immunosuppressed persons
are especially at risk. Specific ac-
tions you can take to promote
healthy swimming include:
Do not swim when you have
diarrhea.
Do not swallow pool water
or get pool water in your mouth.
*Shower before swimming,
children too!
*Wash your hands after using
the toilet or changing diapers.
*Take children on bathroom
breaks or change diapers often.
*Change children's diapers in
a bathroom, not at poolside.
Recreational water venues are


Lake Worth and Lantana and
portions of unincorporated Lee
County, including the Lehigh
Acres and Gateway areas.
One-day-a week landscape ir-
rigation remains in place for resi-
dents and businesses in the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area, which
includes portions of Glades, Hen-
dry, Okeechobee and western
Martin and Palm Beach counties.

SFWMD declares April as Water Conservation Month


District and 100-plus Partners

West Palm Beach-The South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFV.WD'I Governing Board
4. acknowledged April as Water
Conservation Month with a
proclamation that is supported
by more than 125 communities
throughout South Florida.
"Greater awareness of the im-
portance of water conservation
is clearly growing among all Flo-
ridians," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chairman Eric Buermann.
"We applaud the many commu-
nities that publicly share the pri-
ority of protecting and conserving
one of our state's most valuable


resources."
Floridians consume more than
7.9 billion gallons each day of
fresh water, with more than 90
percent of it supplied by under-
ground aquifers. South Florida's,
unique environment and its econ-'
omy depend on the continued
availability of these shared water.
resources. Formal proclamations
supporting water conservation
have been made throughout the
District's 16 counties by munici-
palities ranging from small towns
to metropolitan cities and coun-
ties.
The District is taking a lead
role in developing a comprehen-
sive water conservation program


that will encourage more respon-
sible use of water resources. Nu-
merous stakeholders are working
with the District to study ideas for
new regulatory arid 'er-,round'
landscape irrigation Inc itsu .
voZ a'ry' "arid "iricentive-based
programs and in-depth education
and marketing plans.
The group has been meeting
monthly since December, and
District staff presented their draft
recommendations to the SFWMD
Governing Board on April 9.
Throughout Water Conserva-
tion Month, the District is conduct-
ing numerous public outreach ac-
tivities, such as demonstrations of
cistern use, mobile irrigation labs


and Florida-friendly landscaping.
Other activities include inviting
TV weathercasters and other me-
dia to incorporate a daily water
conservation tip into their broad-
casts and publications; speaking
engagements; and participation
in dozens of community events
throughout the 16-county re-
gion. District volunteers will pro-

Home remedies sometimes can be quite effective


Do home remedies really
work?
Some people swear by them.
For example, many arthritis
sufferers claim that the "raisin
remedy" really works, although
all evidence is anecdotal. There
is no scientific basis for this rem-
edy.
The "raisin remedy" for ar-
thritis is: "Put golden raisins in a
shallow bowl, cover with gin. Al-
low the gin to evaporate. Eat nine
raisins daily."
Those who claim this remedy
works maintain that you have
to use golden raisins. The more
common kind of raisins appar-
ently are not effective.
For most people, this remedy


The Florida Department of
Health acknowledges April 19 to
26 as National Infant Immuniza-
tion Week, an annual campaign
highlighting the importance of
providing appropriate immuniza-
tions to every child by age two.
Since 1994, National Infant Im-
munization Week has served as
a call to action for parents, care-
givers and healthcare providers
to ensure that infants are fully
immunized against 14 vaccine-
preventable diseases. This year's
theme is, "Love Them, Protect
Them, Immunize Them."
"National Infant Immuniza-
tion Week provides a valuable
opportunity for our community
to tell people the importance of
vaccinating all children," Charles
Alexander, DOH Bureau Chief of
Immunization, said. "Vaccination
is one of the most important ways
a parent can protect a child's
health."
Additionally, the National
Immunization for Polio Preven-
tion in Infants and Toddlers or
"NIPP IT" Campaign .is being
highlighted during this week.
NIPP IT promotes immunization

of all children against polio at
two months of age, four months
of age, six months of age, and a
booster at four years of age. The
NIPP IT theme is, "Don't wait to
vaccinate!"
Nationwide, immunization
levels remain high and vaccine-
preventable diseases are at an
all-time low. In 2007, Florida's
immunization coverage level for
children aged two was 83.2 per-
cent. The state's goal is to reach
90 percent immunization cover-
age levels by 2010 for each of the
vaccines administered to two-
year-old children.
Today, children can be
protected from more vaccine-
preventable diseases than ever
before. Infant immunization is a
safe, simple and inexpensive way
to protect children from potential-
ly deadly infectious diseases. Ba-
bies need many immunizations
before two years of age to protect
against serious childhood diseas-
. es like polio, measles, whooping
cough and diphtheria. The Cen-
ters for Disease Control offers
the following tips for parents and
caregivers:


Districts and their schools


recognized for performance


TALLAHASSEE-Twelve Florida
Reading First school districts and
13 Blue Ribbon Schools (BRS)
were honored by the State Board
of Education (SBE) and Educa-
tion Commissioner Eric J. Smith
at a special awards breakfast in
Tallahassee.
"I applaud these districts and
schools for their outstanding ef-
forts to ensure that all Florida
students receive a first-rate edu-
cation," said State Board of Edu-
cation Chairman T. Willard Fair.
"These are extraordinary accom-
plishments that serve as proof of
the hard work taking place in our
classrooms everyday."
The 12 Reading First school
districts in attendance repre-
sented the top 25 percent of all


Reading First districts in Florida.
Reading First grants assist Florida
school districts and schools with
implementation of proven meth-
ods of scientifically-based reading
instruction in classrooms in order
to prevent reading difficulties in
grades K-3-.
The 13 Blue Ribbon Schools
honored are part of the U.S. De-
partment of Education sponsored
BRS program. Last year, the pro-
gram recognized 287 elemen-
tary, middle and high schools
across the nation that were either
academically superior or demon-
strated dramatic gains in overall
student achievement in both
reading and mathematics. Estab-
lished in 1982, the BRS program
has since been redesigned to re-


flect the goals of higher standards
and accountability of the No Child
Left Behind Act (NCLB).
"The districts and schools here
today represent the hard-working
teachers, principals and parents
across the state who strive every-
day to improve the lives of our
children," said Commissioner
Smith. "I'm thrilled to have the
opportunity to congratulate them
personally for these remarkable
successes."

tricts, visit http://www.fldoe.org/

Schools, visit http://www.fldoe.

Take babies to a doctor
or clinic for shots. Immuniza-
tions start at birth and continue
throughout the first two years of
a child's life.
At each visit, discuss
immunizations with a doctor or
health care provider. Ask if the
baby is up-to-date on shots.
Keep the immunization
record in a safe place and bring it
to every doctor's visit.
Ask the doctor when to
return for the baby's next shots.
Make an appointment, and write
it down.
In recent years, the delivery
of immunization services has
shifted from local health depart-
ments to the private sector, with
private providers and managed
care organizations administering
over 66 percent of childhood im-
munizations.
DOH promotes, protects and
improves the health of all people
in Florida.
For information about immuni-
zations, please visit the DOH web
site at www.immunizeflorida.org
or call a local county health de-
partment.


Home remedies are often
popular because they are inex-
pensive. For example, a common
cure for warts is to put a piece of
duct tape on the wart. And quite
often this does work.
Another .inexpensive home
remedy for warts is to tape a small
piece of banana skin (soft side to
wart) on the wart overnight.
Some people claim Listerine
mouthwash can help get rid of


head lice. For this remedy, satu-
rate hair (be careful not to get it
in the eyes -- swim goggles may
be helpful), cover head with plas-
tic shower caps. Leave it on for at
least two hours (some say over-
night).
Comb out dead lice and all
nits. Then wash hair with regular
shampoo.
According to the stories, it has
to be the original Listerine, not one


of the new flavored varieties.
If you have a favorite home
remedy to share, email it to me at
kelsken@newszap.com.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is espe-
cially important if you are on any
prescription drugs. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy."


falls into the category of "even if it
doesn't help, it probably wouldn't
hurt you." However, anyone on
a restricted diet should ask their
doctor before trying it.
Some home remedies have a
basis in science. Chicken soup re-
ally does help relieve cold and flu
symptoms because many of the
ingredients -- such as thyme, on-
ions, parsley, sage, celery -- con-
tain substances which are herbal
medicines.
Other home remedies may
work simply because people be-
lieve they will help. Stress can
increase pain and relaxation can
help reduce pain. Believing in a
home remedy may help reduce
stress, even if the remedy has no
real medicinal value.

The understanding of a sacred trust: A really bad offense


The Rev. Samuel
Thomas, Ph. D+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
A little guy was dropped off
in a neighboring community
and left for some time with the
elderly man who finally became
concerned when nobody showed
up to claim him. He called the au-
thorities, the child's picture was
put on television and he was rec-
ognized.
The guardians were located
and reported that they had acci-
dentally dropped him off at the
wrong house. The TV audience
wasn't given all that transpired,
except it was noted that the
woman "wore a wig." No charges
were filed, according to the news
report.
What piqued my curiosity was


that i was the elderly man who
became concerned about the
child and where he belonged;
apparently before the parents or
guardians. At the same time, my
news was filled with parents who
wanted their. children returned.
They live in Texas, are part of a
religious cult, and have had their
children removed from their com-
pound because of allegations of
abuse.
There was a contrast in my
mind between parentswhoshould
have been more concerned about
where their son was, and those
who are now highly concerned
about where their children are
going to be placed -- and are re-
ported to be distressed by having
them removed.
The Lord himself caused his
parents to be upset when he was


around 12-years-old. Jesus was
on His own. He was at the syna-
gogue with His parents (Luke
2:41ff) and His parents left, sup-
posing He was bring looked after
by his kinfolk and acquaintances.
After a day's journey, they
were worried, not finding Him
with anyone they knew, and re-
turned to the temple where they
found Him. He receives a rebuke
and replied that He had to be
about His father's business.
Their concern springs from
their love and concern for the
Son entrusted to them. Jesus will
grow and He will tell His disciples,
"Temptations to sin are sure to
come, but woe to him by whom
they come. It would be better
for him if a millstone were hung
'round his neck and he were cast
into the sea than that he should


cause one of these little ones to
sin (Luke 17:1)."
If there is something worse
than sinning, it is causing another
to sin.
The Lord is down on those
who ignore their responsibility to
the helpless and vulnerable.
Children who are locked in
cars and left, or who are found
on school buses after the route
is over, or who are left at home
without proper provision while
parents are away receive our sym-
pathy.
The Lord who supported the
weak and the vulnerable has left
us with a conscience that is ap-
palled when they are victimized,
even accidentally or unintention-
ally.
The codes of ethics that gov-
ern our relationships with those


entrusted to our care require us
to provide extra care, going the
second mile to protect them be-
cause they are unable to protect
themselves.
The strong must use their
strength to protect and defend
the weak; those who look after
children must recognize the hid-
den dangers around them, the
unforeseen problems they might
encounter, the dangers that will
not be obvious to them.
I remember working with an
abused child who had been taken
from the home.
We'd talk and then one day we
walked through a mall and I said,
"Go and pick out something for
yourself from the counter in the
store."
The child looked back at me
each time an item was touched,


as if to seek my approval or say,
"Is this the one you want me to
pick?"
I realized that I was challenged
with someone who must have
lived in fear for a long, long time.
The.way back would be a hard
one and the things that other chil-
dren might expect would be a
long time in coming.
The parents felt they were bq-
ing "punished." Their child had
been taken away.
I saw first-hand the violation
of a sacred trust, the betrayal of %
confidence that came from God.
Lots of intervention was needed
in a very disturbed system and
home.
I pray that they, and all those
who live in a vulnerable house-
- hold get it.


Said in jest, with truth behind it, "Help him, Jesus, help him!'"


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
One of our assignments in
seminary was to go experience
a number of worship services
that were different than what
we were familiar with. Some
colleagues -and I visited a small
country church that was having a
revival. When they found out that
they had some "preachers-going-
to bees" with them, they called
us up front to share with them a


word from the Lord. There was
no getting around it.
Fortunately, I had a scriptural
message that I had been work-
ing on, so I wasn't in too bad of
shape. But something happened.
As I was sharing the message that
I had, a lady in the back stood up
and shouted "Amen!"
1 had never been "amened"
before. It was kind of neat. I be-
came even more inspired as
"Yes, Lord!" and more amens fol-
lowed.


One of my colleagues, how-
ever, struggled when his turn
came to preach. He struggled and
we struggled in empathy with
him. Finally, the same lady who
amened me stood up, raised her
hand, and shouted, "Help him,
Jesus. Help him!"
We later laughed about it, but
"Help him, Jesus, help him!" be-
came a battle cry that caught on
throughout my seminary career.
If someone stuttered or hesitated,
you would here someone from


the back of the room call out,
"Help him, Jesus, help him!"
We said it in jest, but there
was a lot of truth behind it. When
someone stutters or falls, our
prayer should be, "Help him,
Jesus, help him!" If a mother is
struggling with a child, "Help her,
Jesus, help her!" As you drive by
those areas of town that need
help, don't hesitate to ask our
Lord to help them. If you see
someone in an accident, a col-
league at work in need, or a friend


suffering, go to the Master Helper
and ask for Him to help out.
And when someone does
something good or right, let our
responses be, "Amen!" or "Thank
You, Lord!" Some research has
shown that we need the equiva-
lent of 17 good affirmations a
day in order to thrive. These can
come in the forms of encourag-
ing words, hugs, handshakes,
and even "Amens." The world
around us is starving for these af-
firmations. How many have you


received today? How many have
you given out?
Thursday, May 1, is the N4-
tional Day of Prayer. Why not see
how many people you can daily
help "thrive" between now and
then? Why not on that day joih
with others and ask our Lord to
help our nation, our leaders, oir
communities, and our families?
Let us all join together and pray,
"Help them, Jesus, help them!"

ful because the only way the dis-
ciples knew of Christ's temptation
was that he told them. Jesus was
alone in the desert when he faced
the devil.
He shared his struggle the ex-
perience of his struggle to help
them face their struggles.
The devil tempted him in an
effort to defeat him from carrying
out the will of God. Christ's temp-
tation was real.
It was not play-acting.
He faced greater temptations
than we do.
Satan doesn't have to use his
full force against us, but he did
against Christ.
Yet, Jesus overcame him!
The temptations Christ faced are
the ones we, too, must face and
defeat if we are to do the will of
God.
Christ overcame and He will
enable us to overcome if.we fol-
low his example.
Because Christ lives in us, He
gives us his victory and power.
He lives out his victory in us.
It is a mystery but a great re-
ality "Christ lives in me" (Gal
2:20).
We can face temptation with
victory: "Greater is he who is in
us than he that is in the world" (1
John 4:4).
We know that Christ is in heav-
en but He has put the Holy Spirit
in our hearts.
The Spirit gives us the power
to say no to temptation and yes to
God (Titus 2:1-12).
The same Lord who defeated
the devil in the wilderness will de-
feat him in your life.
You have to see yourself as a
victor if you are to be victorious.
Many battles are lost before they
are ever fought because we ex-
pect to be defeated.
We suffer from self-doubt in-
stead of trusting the power of the
risen Lord.


times.
When we do, let us go to God
and confess our sins.
Then get back up and press
on for the mark of the prize of the
high calling of God.

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

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

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

How are we doing?

a.m. and then again from 6 p.m.
till 9 p.m.
Sometimes Iwonder, "Why?".
What ever possessed me to
endure that kind of physical en-
durance in the Ft. Myers heat of
August remains a mystery to me
yet today!
There are lessons that I learned
on the practice field that apply to
life.
One is understanding the prin-
ciples of temptation.
Let me explain.
I recall one day how a coach
was particularly upset that no de-
fensive player was able to bring
down a new young-buck running
back.
About the time we would get
into position to wrap our arms
around him, he would bob-and-
weave his head and/or feet in
such a way that the only thing we
were grabbing was the dust he
left us in as he pranced himself to
the goal line.
Finally after about an hour of
this foolishness, the coach threw
his clipboard to the ground and
grabbed several of us by the face
mask and shouted, "Stop looking
at his eyes or his feet and start
watching his belly-button!
Wherever he goes, that will al-
ways be in the middle of his body.
Go for that!"
It was amazing what hap-
'pened the rest of the afternoon.
It took some time to adjust our
thinking.
Before long, however, every-
one began to notice the coach
was right!
The more we shifted our focus
from the head and the feet of the
hot-shot running back and began
to zero in on his mid-section, the
easier it became to bring him
down.
Suddenly the young-buck
wasn't "Mr. Touchdown" after

When you think about it, what
was true that afternoon with the
"belly-button-lesson" is also true
for the believer today.
We all need a method to han-
dle temptation.
If the follower of Christ is to
not get overrun by temptation
routinely, a new tactic has to be
implemented.
We have to go right for the
mid-section of the devil and bring
him down!
The temptation experience of
Christ is. recorded in Scripture for


A 'watchdog'



with manners?

Thanks to the wonderful miracle: "It's A Girl"


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County
Democrat
It's been long enough now
since Daisy's off-spring was born
that we know Dixie is a girl a big
girl for her age at only six weeks,
but a girl she is, and beautiful.
Long, slender legs, a somewhat
long face with huge, dark eyes al-
most covered with long bushy eye
lashes, so long and full it looks as


if she has long blonde bangs that
need a bit of trimming. Of course
her ears are typically pointy, don-
key-long and smooth as velvet.
She must have been born a
dancer. At less than a week old
she was leaping like a doe here
and there in the pasture, then
round and round in almost per-
fect circles, then nuzzling Danny
as if inviting him to play with her.
A couple more days passed and-
she was seen in the wallow with


hiiii...over and over they rolled,
rubbing against each other and
kicking the air, yet their feet never
touched the other.
I was ;at the fence with their
daily Ireals but had not called
out to lihemi, being too fascinated
with their antics.
Dana, who is rapidly growing
larger and larger with her baby,
(we're hoping for a boy this time)
just stood staring. Then finally,
without being called, she wan-


dered over to the fence.
Well, that did it! Daisy came
running, and Danny with Baby-
Dixie, came bounding out of the
wallow, and lost no time in join-
ing Dana at the fence for their
treats.
Baby Dixie gets within inches
of my hand holding out a half
slice of bread, but she won't quite
let me touch her yet. However,
the other three, Daisy, her mother,
Dana and Danny can't get close


enough, fast enough. And if the
treats aren't handed out imme-
diately, Dana and Danny let the
world know how anxious they
are for these special bits of peo-
ple food. They hold their heads
high and at times kick the air with
their front feet and let out brays
that can be heard a mile! And one
of them, I think it must be Danny,
takes a deep breath and honks
right in the middle of a series of
brays.


I sometimes wonder if they're
just showing off, or if they're extra
hungry, or maybe just trying to let
the world know of their pure joy
at being alive in Springtime and
maybe simply being glad they're
here and not somewhere else.
When all the treats are gone, I
start back to the house thinking: it
must be the latter because I know
how they feel...

BEE proofing your


Florida yard


By Dan Culbert,
horticultural agent
UF/IFAS Extension Service
This week our office hosted
several seminars for emergency
personnel, outdoor workers and
homeowners on how to pro-
tect themselves in case of a bee
emergency. Training is one of the
photo strongest ways to prevent another
ce i tragedy like the one that has ef-
ce in fected our community.
vers, Homeowners can also take
rms; stock of their Florida Yards and
rord, look for potential trouble spots.
ce in Anita Neal, St. Lucie Extension
I the Director, recently teamed up with
also UF Extension Entomologists M. K.
third O'Malley and J.D. Ellis to put to-
gether a fact sheet on Bee Proof-
ing your Florida home. It's the
subject for this week's column.
As Africanized honey bees
(AHBs) continue to spread
throughout Florida, the need for
awareness and precaution will.
continue to grow. One AHB char-
acteristic that concerns the public
is the bee's ability to nest almost
anywhere. European honey bees
-- docile honey bees that bee-
keepers manage--generally only,
nest in enclosed areas. AHBs are
more likely to construct exposed
nests in proximity.to humans.
Residents often deal with
many. sorts of insect issues--ants
invading the kitchen, mosquitoes
photo hovering around a backyard gath-
vard; ering, wasps constructing a nest
Spirit in the doorway, etc. However,
there is a' difference between
these somewhat routine occur-


rences and an interaction with
AHBs.
Generally, anyproblems insects
cause to people can be fixed with
a little common sense and some
bug spray. But, when an AHB nest
is disturbed, several hundred bees
can come out to defend the nest.
The resulting amount of stings
is greatly increased from that of
European bees, and children, the
elderly, and pets especially are
not able to sustain many stings.
Therefore, it is important that any
AHB nesting sites be eliminated
by bee-proofing the property.
Bee-proofing is the practice of
methodically removing or restrict-
ing access to potential AHB nest-
ing sites. If an area is bee-proofed,
the potential for wild (or feral)
colonies to move into that area
is greatly reduced and the risk of
stinging incidents is also lowered.

Tigers ready to rumble in
By Najl Tobias ii-
INI Florida .


CLEWISTON Win or go
home.
That's how the playoffs work
in every team sport, including
baseball.
For the Clewiston Tigers base-
ball team, winning the District
11-4A tournament would be a
big accomplishment and a step
toward the opportunity to win the
Class 4A state championship. The
last time Clewiston even reached
the state Final Four was in 1978 -
exactly 30 years ago.
But Vance Johnston, the sixth-
year head coach, knows better
that to just look for the big prize
ahead. He likes his team to focus
on one'game at a time and be
prepared as best as possible for
competition.
One thing that the Tigers could
depend on in the district playoffs
is their pitching, led by Isandro
Marquez and Nick Raiola. Both
are considered great team lead-
ers as their earned run averages
(ERAs) are 3.08 and 1.96, respec-
tively.
Not only that, these two highly
regarded pitchers have put Clewis-
ton in good position to win many
of their games, even though the
Tigers finished the regular season
with an 8-10 record.


INI/Naji Tobias
Clewiston Tigers sophomore Julio Ramos slides in for a run
in their,7-6 victory over the Glades Day Gators on April 8.


Marquez can also fill in as a
reliever; he recorded a save in
the Tigers' 7-6 victory against the
Glades Day Gators on April 8.
Johnston touched on the
team's general strengths and
weaknesses.
"Our pitching has been pretty
darn good this year, they've really
improved as the season's gone
on," Johnston said. "I feel like our
defense has been improving each


game. We've been working hard
to improve our hitting, but we've
got to hit our stride by the time
we start our district playoffs."
If any player could put the
team on his back, it's Marquez
because not only is he a well-re-
garded pitcher, he's a dangerous
hitter as well.
So far, Marquez has posted a
.310 batting average with 13 hits
in 42 at'bats, 14 runs, nine RBIs


district
(runs batted in) and two home
runs all team highs.
The well-disciplined baseball
athlete also has help from the
likes of Mason Cole, Dillon Irey
and Miguel Romero all three of
them have batting averages of
.300 or above.
Overall, if one looks at the Ti-
gers while they play, it seems like
much discipline was instilled in
each of the players. Johnston attri-
butes that to his policy of making
sure the players conduct them-
selves well on and off the field.
"I want the boys to be model
citizens," Johnston said. "If they
behave in school and in the com-
munity, then the wins will take
care of themselves."
All of that could bode well
for the Tigers as they compete in
the quarterfinals of district play,
which began on April 22.
The District 11-4A champion
will be determined on April 25.
The teams in Clewiston's dis-
trict are Riverdale, Estero, South
Fort Myers, Cypress Lakes, Lem-
on Bay, LaBelle and Gateway
Charter.
The district tournament, which
will feature all of these teams, will
be played at Estero High School
in Fort Myers.

Lady Raiders win regional track meet


Glades Central's
boys' team finishes
as runner-up

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MIAMI It was a track meet
that won't soon be forgotten, to
say the least.
The Lady Raiders won the
Class 2A Region .4 regional track
meet on April 18 at Miami-Belen
Jesuit High School in convincing
fashion as they outlasted 25 other
teams in attendance, including
the Pahokee Lady Blue Devils.
The Glades Central Raiders
girls track team are now only one
step away from their ultimate
goal a state championship.
What's amazing is that the
girls have won all but one of their
track meets for the entire season
- something that not many saw
coming.
Those team victories include
the April 10 District 13-2A meet at
Glades Central High School, the
April 3 Palm Beach County Meet
at Dwyer High School and the
March 27 West Conference Meet
in Royal Palm Beach.
"We can't win county, confer-
ence and district and not win the
regionals," said Vanessa Anthony,
the regional champion in the 300
meter hurdles race and runner-
up in the 100-meter hurdles race.
"We would be like the Patriots. It
ain't working with us."
Anthony won the girls 300-
meter hurdles final with a laser-
recorded time of 44.81, while
her teammate, Martha Jaimes,
finished third with a time of
47.19 seconds. Both qualified
for the Class 2A state champion-
ship meet on Saturday, April 25 at
Winter Park.
The girls 300-meter hurdles
champion was edged out in the
100-meter hurdles final by Pine
Crest's Chelsea Lunn. Lunn's win-
ning time was 15.56 seconds and
Anthony's was 15.59 seconds a
.03 second differential.
Also making a big showing at
the regional meet was Lady Raid-
ers sprinter Vionni Brown, who
qualified for the state meet in the
100- and 200-meter races.
In perhaps the most competi-
tive race of the day, Brown edged


out Pahokee's Ruth Ann Kinglocke
in the girls 100-meter final with a
time of 12.43 seconds. Kinglocke,
who defeated her once before in
the event at the Lake Worth track
meet, finished second with a time
of 12.44 a .01 second differen-
tial.
Kinglocke was, the only Lady
Blue Devil to qualify for the state
meet in the individual events.
Brown finished third overall
in the girls 200-meter final with
a time of 25.09 seconds, behind
Pope John Paul's Jaybria Calcote
(24.62 seconds) and Pompano
Beach's Raneisha Lamar (24.92
seconds).
The Lady Raiders 4X100 relay
team won the regionals with a
time of 49.16 seconds, while the
Lady Blue Devils finished fourth
with a time of 50.46 seconds.
Both relay teams qualified for the
state meet.
Lady Raiders senior Willisha
Wrisper finished third in the triple
jump (35-2), while seniors Na-
shay Joseph and Deasha Everett
finished first and second in the
shotput with throws of 36-7.5 and
36-6, respectively. All three will
be competing for the gold medal
on Saturday in their individual
events.
"I just feel great, I'm almost
speechless," said Jemeaul Calnek,
the Lady Raiders track coach. "I
felt like we could win regionals,
but we still had to do it.
"We proved we're the best
team in South Florida and now
we get to show that we could be
have a hand at being the best in
the state."
The Lady Raiders finished with
94 points, a comfortable margin
over Cardinal Gibbons, who was
the regional runner-up with 78
points. The Lady Blue Devils were
in 12th place with 19 points.
Boys' results at the
regionals
The Glades Central boys track
team, however, finished as the
regional runner-up as the Miami-
Belen Jesuit track team won this
event for the second consecutive
year. Belen Jesuit won its first ever
Class 2A state track championship
last year, edging out Glades Cen-
tral last year's state runner-up.
Belen Jesuit cruised to a 118


point win over 20 other teams
in attendance, including Glades
Central and Pahokee. The Raiders
finished with 88 points, while the
Pahokee boys team finished tied
for 13th with 17 points.
It proved to be a somewhat
rough going for the Raiders boys
team as senior Brunarious Mck-
ever qualified for the state meet
in the 300-meter hurdles race,
but not the 100-meter hurdles. He
finished second overall in the 300-
meter hurdles with a time of 39.22
seconds and finished fifth overall
with a time of 15.54 seconds.
What probably was the most
disappointing for the Raiders was
that in the hotly contested 800-
meter race, neither Patrick Bill-
ings nor Mychael Hollis qualified
for the state championship in the
event. Billings finished fifth with
a time of 2:03.36, with Hollis in
sixth place at 2:03.66.
It was expected that both
would have an excellent sgo.t at
winning the state title, butfTnex-
perience may have done them in
with the top four 800-meter run-
ners boxing them out of the run-
ning.
There were quite a few bright
spots for the Raiders, however.
Travis Benjamin qualified for the
state meet in the 100-meter race
and the long jump. He finished
second at 10.79 seconds and was
the regional champion in the long
jump at 22-5.5.
Glades Central's Demetrius
Evans qualified in the high jump,
finishing fourth at 6-2 and Rantav-
ious Wooten qualified in the 200-
meter race as he finished third
with a time of 22.35 seconds.
"The girls have come a long
way, they have a chance to win
state," said Willie C. McDonald,
the Raiders boys track coach.
"We didn't put ourselves in posi-
tion to win the regionals. Many of
the guys did good, but they made
some honest mistakes. The expe-
rience that the young guys went
through this season, they'll ab-
solve it and grow from it."
Neither did Pahokee, espe-
cially when the 4X100 relay team,
was knocked out of the running
for the Class 2A state champion-
ship last Friday. ,
The team's ultimate goal fell
short in the 4X100 preliminary
race after a less-than-successful


baton exchange from Artis Ford
to Martavious Odoms.
In perhaps the most dramatic
scene of the track season, Ford
(the third leg) tripped into Odoms'
right leg as they tried to qualify
for the finals. It was caused by
a collision between Odoms and
Derrick Hopkins, the third leg of
the Miami-Monsignor Pace 4X100
team.
Pace track coach Greg Barnes
believed that Odoms was in their
lane just before the collision Pa-
hokee was in lane five, Pace was
in lane four.
"Pahokee was in our lane, so
when our third leg (Hopkins) was
coming around to the final ex-
change, he ran into Pahokee's an-
chor leg (Odoms)," Barnes said.
"What Pahokee did had an
effect on our exchange," Barnes
continued. "Our third leg (Hop-
kins) almost fell when he ran into
Pahokee's fourth leg (Odoms).
But we got our handoffiexchange
cleafi and finished the T'e_.-" .
Pace qualified for the 4X100
final, finishing second in the race,
while Pahokee finished fifth. The
top four teams qualify for the fi-
nal.
"I'm not really worried about
it, there's nothing I can do," said
Emmanuel Hendricks, the Blue
Devils track coach. "Our third
leg (Ford) ran into our fourth leg
(Odoms) and caused Martavious
to fall. The fact of the matter is
that Miami-Pace didn't want to
see us in the finals. Third place
don't look good in Miami if you're
a Miami team. They didn't want
to see Glades Central and Paho-
kee in the 4X100 relay final."
Pace went on to win the 4X100
final with a time of 41.04 seconds,
edging out Glades Central 4X100
team (41.06 best team time
since 1992).
Both Glades Central and Paho-
kee qualified for the state meet in
the 4X400 relay, finishing second
and fourth, respectively.
Pahokee's Micanor Regis
qualified in the shotput, finishing
second with a throw of 50-9 and
Glades Central's 4X800 will be in
the state finals after finishing sec-
ond overall with a season best
time of 8:20.79.
The top four finishers in each
event qualified for the Class 2A
state meet at Winter Park.

Rodeo
Continued From Page 1

a little draft horse blood in them
because of their impressive stat-
ure, feathered fetlocks and broad
hooves.
"You don't just pick one up
everyday. It is thrilling when you
find one and watch him," Mr.
Bowers said.
Five Star Rodeo keeps South
and Central Florida a haven for
the sport and conducts profes-


sional shows in Davie, Ocala,
Homestead, Inverness, Big Cy-
press Reservation, Brighton Res-
ervation, Green Cove Springs and
Brookville. Rodeo athlete asso-
ciations such as Professional Bull
Riders, Professional Rodeo Cow-
boy Association, Professional
Cowboy Association and Eastern
Indian Rodeo Association are rep-
resented at performances.
Mr. Bowers and Mr. Johns
also enjoy their involvement with
local ranch rodeos in Moore ha-
ven, Brighton, Immokalee and


Clewiston. Recently, on April
19 they produced the rodeo at
Clewiston's annual Sugar Festival.
Sometimes they participate at 4H
events and bid on livestock raised
by area children and youth.
They are involved in all areas
of maintenance and production.
Marty Johns is the arena director,
Paul Bowers Jr. is the livestock
manager; and with the assistance
of long time associate, Bob Brad-
ley, they set up each rodeo. Enter-
tainment may include flag team
tributes, military tributes, stage-


coaches and the breast cancer
awareness events called Tough
Enough To Wear Pink. They also
donate to causes like the Shriner
charities at the Ocala rodeos.
Mr. Bowers was raised in Big
Cypress Reservation, and Mr.
Johns grew up at the Brighton
Reservation. The Seminole Tribe
helped preserve the rural tradi-
tions of ranching and Indian ro-
deos at both locations. Bowers
and Johns grew up working with
rough stock, and then entered
timed events. They attribute this


life long interest, and the longev-
ity of the business to Five Star
Rodeo's former founders and
operators such as Pat Hansel, Eric
Goolsby and the Troy Weekley
family.
Paul Bowers Jr. bought Five
Star Rodeo when it became avail-
able for purchase in 2006. He and
Marty Johns believe in carrying
on the local, historical tradition
of rodeo, especially the Florida
version. It could have been pur-
chased by out of state buyers.
"We wanted to keep the in-


terest of rodeo in Florida," Marty
Johns said.
Five Star Rodeo can set up,
portable rodeo events almost'
anywhere, and quickly, such as:
football fields and fairgrounds.
Contact Marty Johns in Brighton
at 863-634-1272, or Paul Bow-
ers Jr. in Big Cypress at 863-228-
0597. The next rodeos will be inr
Immokalee on May 3, in Big Cy-'
press on May 17, and at Davie this
June.

dents do not get moderate physi-
cal activity, while 61 percent re-
port no vigorous physical activity.
One half hour of walking daily
can maintain blood pressure and
sugar levels, and reduce the risk
of heart disease. It can also lower
the risk of obesity and osteoporo-
sis. According to officials, every
hour of vigorous exercise may ad-
vance your life by two hours.
Start walking and improve
your overall sense of well-being;


and join Start Walk on May 1 in
Glades County. The walk begins at
the Glades County Health Depart-
ment on U.S. 27 in Moore Haven.
Organizers will gather up partici-
pants along Avenue J, and stroll
all the way to the public library by
the Caloosahatchee River.
The walk will end with a dem-
onstration of Tai Chi, which origi-
nated as a Chinese martial arts.
However, today, Tai Chi is popu-
larly used in the United States as
a form of exercise that may al-
leviate physical consequences of
stress on the body and mind.
Afterwards, walkers can
browse through the library's dis-
play of exercise books and learn


about living a healthy lifestyle in
a rural county. The health depart-
ment would like to protect and
promote the good health of all
county residents by delivering
quality health services, accord-
ing to local officials. Go to www.
