Arrest made in May 11 robbery


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN On Mon-
day, Aug. 6, Regina Cora, 21,
turned herself in to the Glades
County Sheriff's Office in con-
nection with a May 11 home
invasion.
Two other suspects had al-
ready been arrested after an at-
tempt to rob farm workers of
their wages ended in gun fire.
Cora was shot in the head
and leg during the May incident.
She had been in recovery until


she was well enough to return
to the sheriff's office.
During the incident last May,
two victims were shot and
taken to the hospital. One man
was shot numerous times and
was airlifted to the Lee Memo-
rial trauma unit. The other male
victim was shot in the hand and
was also taken to Lee Memorial.
Regina Cora is alleged to have
been a third party in a home in-
vasion plan that went afoul, ac-
cording to an arrest report by
Detective Sgt. Harris. During an


Crime lab: GCSO forensics


interview on May 16, Cora re-
portedly told investigators that
she and Herbert Baker planned
to rob Mexicans because she
had seen large sums of money
on them in the past.
The supposed plan was for
the woman to visit a trailer and
after all the Mexican farm work-
ers were in the living room while
she "entertained" them, she
would signal her accomplice by
closing the door. Then the man
would enter a back door and
show a gun.
According to officials, Regina


Cora also relayed to Detective
Sgt. Harris that the man's mother,
"was in on it." The arrest report
goes on to state that the mother
would have received $100 as her
payment for being the driver of
the getaway car.
During the initial investiga-
tion, .witnesses gave similar ac-
counts of the incident.
When Cora went inside the
trailer of the intended victims,
she began to undress herself in
front of the occupants, investi-
gators said. Then a black male,
wearing dark clothes and a


mask, came in through the back
door and began shooting.
"At this time she (Cora) heard
numerous shots and hit the
floor, yelling that she had been
shot. A short time later, Herbert
Baker grabbed her and told.her
that they needed to get out of
there. Regina advised us that she
and Baker fled from the trailer
out the rear door and that she
could not see well due to blood
dripping into her face," Detective
Harris states in the arrest report.

MOORE HAVEN Florida
Highway Patrol reports that an
accident involving two' large
trucks caused one fatality, and
seriously injured two others on
Sept. 4 around 9:30 a.m.
The collision occurred in
Glades County at S.R. 78 and
Tobias Road on the western
side of Moore Haven.

25, was driving northbound

Two kinds of powder are used to reveal fingerprints to investigators at a crime scene.
The black powder on the left is applied with a brush and the magnetic powder on the
right has a special applicator. Other evidence is collected and taken to the new crime
scene lab at the Glades County Sheriff's Office.


GCSO has new crime scene lab


Forensic science
done locally saves
valuable time

By Nena.Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN When
the new jail was being planned,
many local professionals on
the law enforcement staff saw
the need to include a crime
scene lab that applies forensic
science to evidence collected at
a crime scene.
Sheriff Stuart Whiddon
agreed it was a high priority and
now this specialized laboratory
has officially begurl operation.
According to Captain Daryl
Lewis, certified fingerprint ex-
pert, the new lab is on par with
labs in Okeechobee and St. Lu-
cie Counties.
"We've come into the 21st
century," said Captain Lewis,


* referring to the new crime fight-
ing equipment.
The fingerprint apparatus is
a chamber used to control hu-
midity and heat when using a
chemical that reacts to amino
acids left in fingerprints. The
fingerprints are invisible until
the chemical mingles with the
amino acids, revealing the fin-
gerprint for further examina-
tion.
To create the chemical at-
mosphere needed, the fuming
chamber must reach 80 per-
cent humidity and then a coffee
cup warmer is used to heat the
chemical agent until the fumes
mix with the fingerprint amino
acids. This process can get a
print off almost anything, ac-
cording to Captain Lewis.
It is vital to use the fuming
apparatus with its safety fea-
tures that protect the forensic
expert: The chemical used to
fumigate and reveal the print is
a potentially dangerous poison


called cyanoacrylate. Basically,
it is super glue without the
hardening agent. If it evaporates
under heat that is too intense, a
deadly cyanide gas is released.
That is why the fuming appara-
tus has an exhaust system, and
humidity and heat detectors.
A vacuum chamber for
more sensitive items is also
used to preserve fingerprints:.
It is a long cylander that uses
negative pressure in an air- -
tight vacuum. It is like a slow
cooker that also uses the super
glue technique, and it is large
enough to contain a rifle.
Another fingerprint lifting
process is used in the field by
officers on the scene. Two dif-
ferent types of powder are used
and safety precautions must
be followed, too. Many people
have heard of a black powder
that is used to adhere to finger-
prints which makes them visi-

on S.R. 78 in a dump truck, ac-
cording to FHP.
The tires on the right side
left the pavement and went
onto. the grass. Mr. Castrillo
attempted to correct the prob-
lem, but instead lost control
and the dump truck overturned
onto its right side.
Then it slid into the south-
bound lane where it struck a
southbound box truck driven
by Raul Delgado, 23. Mr. Del-
gado was unable to prevent the
collision, and the front of the
box truck crashed into the roof
of Mr. Castrillo's vehicle.

An unexplained



beauty: local



creek is unique


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
The Creek is unto itself:
as old as the regions through
which it flows, extraordinary in
the world of wildlife --.serving
as hearth and home to count-
less creatures of water and sky
as well as plant life of land and
witer:and air.
But what are the day-to-day,
season-to-season intimacies of
SFisheating Creek?
Such has never been com-
pletely. documented and
chances are, never will be.
After all, in the land that the
Creek claims and defines every


season has major and minor
sub-seasons within ,the for-
mal calendar and every year
differs from the one before
from its bubbling birthplace
in Highlands County to its final
destination through sprawling
Cowbone Marsh by Fort Center
into Lake Okeechobee north of
Curry Island.
More than half the length
of the entire Creek is in Glades
County and, according to
many, more than 90 percent of
its beauty is also.
In the annals of waterways,

John Huysman receives



Doctorate in Education


Teacher drove the
back roads to FGCU
for doctorate

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN John
Huysman always encouraged
his secondary students to fur-
ther their education and make
learning new things a lifetime
process. He really did not ex-
pect them to turn this philoso-
phy of education around and
aim it right back at him, but.


they did.
They told him to take his
own advice. Getting a Doctor-
ate in Education had been on
his mind for years.
"I had always wanted to do
it," said Dr. Huysman of Moore
Haven Junior-Senior High
School.
John Huysman explained
that it is difficult for educators
in rural areas to pursue higher
education because of location
and affordability. He and his
wife were in the middle of put-
ting their own kids through col-
lege and they couldn't just pack


up his life and move several
hours away.
His education career in
Glades County began in 1984,
where he has worked on el-
ementary, middle and second-
ary levels. During this time,
he went on to complete his
master's degree in 1987. He
has been an adjunct professor
for Edison College for the past
14 years.
It was through Edison's Sally
Berg that he learned of a pro-
gram that interested him. Ms.
Berg is with the Hendry Glades

At the dry end of the Pearce Ca-
nal inside Lake Okeechobee near
Buckhead Ridge in Glades County,
according to South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD),
a number of poles stood sentry
over the otherwise bare lake bot-
tom waiting for water to return
to the enormous lake. At normal
lake levels, the tops of these poles
are just barely visible above the
water in this popular fishing spot.
During high water, they cannot be
seen at all.
The poles stood until con-
tractors hired by SFWMD, using
heavy-duty chain saws last week
removed them at the lake bot-
,tom, preventing the poles from
becoming an unseen hazard to
boaters who will return to fish the
area again once the water comes

Regional water
shortages predicted
to continue in 2008

WEST PALM BEACH The
water level in Lake Okeechobee
was 9.58 feet above sea level on
Sept. 10, 0.86 feet (a little over
10 inches) below the previous
historic low for this date of 10.44
feet above sea level, recorded on
Sept. 10, 1956. According to water
managers at the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
WMD), the growing disparity
between current lake level read-
ings and previous historic lows
suggests that South. Florida may
experience back-to-back water
shortage years for the first time
since the early 1980s.
Lake Okeechobee water levels
have set new record daily lows
since early June, culminating in
an all-time record low of 8.82 feet
above sea level on July 3, 2007. A
year ago today, the lake's water
level was 13.26 feetabove sea lev-
el, 3.68 feet higher than this morn-
ing's reading, leading up to one of
the most severe water shortages
in South Florida history.
Despite near average rainfall


WEST PALM BEACH In col-
.laboration with Florida Governor
Charlie Crist, the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
WMD) proclaimed Sept. 9-15 Wa-
ter Reuse Week in South Florida.
Water reuse is an key part of
the District's water conservation
program and a vital alternative
source of water for the State of
Florida. Currently, Florida leads
the nation by reusing 660 mil-
lion gallons of reclaimed water
each day to conserve freshwater
supplies and replenish our rivers,
streams, lakes and aquifers, ac-
cording to the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection.
To assist entities in implement-
ing water reuse, the District and
the State of Florida invested $24.6
million over the past two years
to fund 71 water reuse projects
through the District's Alternative

portions of the District, as rainfall

southeastern residential areas.
'Without the sort of rainfall
only associated with slow-moving
tropical depressions, water levels
in Lake Okeechobee are likely to
remain below previous record
lows through at least September,"
said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "Because the

the regional water supply, these
readings suggest South Florida

Water Supply Funding Program.
These projects added 93 million
gallons per day of reclaimed wa-
ter capacity to the regional supply.
Since the program's inception in
2005, 135 alternative water sup-
ply projects totaling $83 million
have been funded through this
grant program.
Water reuse is the beneficial
use of highly treated domestic
wastewater, also known as re-
claimed water. Reclaimed water
can be used in many ways, in-
cluding irrigation of yards, agri-
culture, golf courses and other
green space; ground water re-
charge; environmental enhance-
ment; and industrial uses, such as
cooling water and process water.
Reuse conserves water by reduc-
ing reliance on ground water,
surface water and potable water.

water shortage during the next
dry season."
The largest water body in
South Florida's water manage-
ment system, Lake Okeechobee
is a primary backup water supply
to five million South Floridians
and provides water for irrigation
across more than 500,000 acres
of farmland south of the lake. By
stirring up sediments and concen-
trating harmful nutrients, back to
back active hurricane seasons
followed by an extended water
shortage have affected both the
quantity and quality of water in
the lake over the past three years.
Water managers took advantage
of the drought this year by remov-
ing nearly two million cubic yards
of exposed phosphorus-laden
muck from the lake. The muck
removal will help restore habitat
and improve future water quality
by reducing phosphorus levels in
the lake, which last year averaged
200 parts per billion.

Reuse also replenishes valuable
water supplies while providing
an environmentally sound way to
manage wastewater.
Water Reuse is a common-
sense way to offset potable water
use and accommodate the wa-
ter demands of a growing South
Florida economy. More than 100
water reuse systems throughout
South Florida currently produce
more than 230 million gallons
of reclaimed water each day -
- the equivalent of nearly 15,000
residential swimming pools. This
water is used to irrigate hundreds
of golf courses and thousands of
residential lots as well as to pro-
vide environmental enhancement
and recharge of regional water
resources across the District's 16
counties.

Other, more natural, features
of the lake that will remain have
not been marked. Many places
within the lake bottom are natu-
rally rocky. Local boaters and
businesses know the areas well
and do their best to warn visitors
where they should be wary. An
especially large rock field lurks
just off the lakeside approach af-
ter leaving the navigation lock at
Henry Creek and another is just
past the mouth of the Kissimmee

Even at normal levels, Lake
Okeechobee is a shallow lake,
with an average depth of only nine
feet. Wind whipping across the
vast expanse of water can cause
large waves on the lake, which
can go from calm to treacherous
very quickly. Boaters are always
urged to leave a navigation plan
with someone when venturing
out on the lake. The plan should
include an estimated time of re-
turn and a general idea of the
boater's destination. Navigation
on Lake Okeechobee should be
safer due to these low lake level
hazard removal efforts.

Water restrictions
still in effect
Extreme water shortage con-
ditions persist in the Everglades
Agricultural Area and in portions
of Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee,
Martin and western Palm Beach
counties, which remain in full
Phase III water restrictions. Due to
below average rainfall and subse-
quent low groundwater levels in
the District's Lower West Coast,
full Phase II restrictions remain in
place for Lee and portions of Col-
lier, Hendry, Glades and Charlotte
counties. Landscape irrigation in
St. Lucie, Martin, eastern Palm
Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade
and Monroe counties remains
limited to two days per week in
most areas.
The SFWMD continues to en-
courage both residential and ag-
ricultural water users throughout
the District to voluntarily reduce
water consumption and conserve
water.

Florida is used for landscape ir-
rigation," said SFWMD Executive
Director Carol Ann Wehle. "Re-
claimed water is a valuable re-
source that may one day account
for the vast majority of the water
we use on our landscapes and

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post
it anytime at the MooreHaven/Glades issues forum at http://
www.newszapforums.com/forum57. It is a hometown forum
so visit the page as often as you would like and share your
comments (but no personal attacks or profanities, please).
You can also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-
hour opinion line at (863) 983-9140. Comments will be pub-
lished in the newspaper as space permits.
THE HUB: I would like to have everyone look at the map of Florida
as FPL did. FPL chose Glades County because it was right smack dab
in the middle of everything. Everyone else that looks at Glades County
thinks it is too far away from everything. It is an ideal location for ANY
kind of a business that wants to share in the population explosion
in any direction from Glades County. It is the hub of the wheel. It is
the "keystone" of South Florida. To get from coast to coast you must
pass through Glades County. It is a distribution mecca. The future of
Glades County can not be measured and no one can see the forest
because of the trees. Not Hendry County, Not Highlands County, Not
Polk County BUT GLADES COUNTY is in the most strategic location
and that can not be changed. Just put a toll booth up on that bridge
in Moore Haven. There is no other way around that bridge. Hendry
County can put a toll booth up on S.R. 80 and we get everyone. They
want to put in a toll road from the north of us to Naples and try to
make the Winter Haven area the hub. They may get the toll road in
but Winter Haven ain't the hub! AND IT NEVER WILL BE THE HUB.
Just look at the map. Common sense dictates that the roads through
Glades County should be big in every direction just because of emer-
gency evacuation routes if for no other reason. All of the population
south of the Big "O" on both coasts needs an evacuation route. S.R.
27 serves the S.E. coast. There is nothing for Lee and Collier County.
Make them build the roads through Hendry and Glades Counties.
They have the money. They have the people. West Palm to Miami can
share the east-west costs.

CURFEW PROPOSED: In response to the proposal that Glades
County have a curfew for those under the age of 18, there is nothing
to do in Moore Haven after 11 p.m., therefore, why do kids need to be
out? Take a drive down river road and look at all the docks and picnic
areas that the city put in a few years back. Teenagers have caught
them on fire, (late at night), knocked out most of the spindles, (late at
night), and leave trash along the river (from late night parties). These
areas were funded with grant money, so there probably is no money
to maintain them. I'm not sure what the answer is. It always takes a
few bad apples to ruin it for all. One thing we can all do is keep our
eyes and ears open and report any mischief going on right away to
our sheriff's dept.

PUT THEM TO BED EARLY: Kids come from out of town here to
visit relatives and run wild at night. It is not innocent when you hear
their loud voices as they walk down the road, in the woods, yards,
pastures and mud holes until the wee hours of the morning. They
take their dogs with them; the dogs run wild and get into garbage
cans, knocking things over in the yard. Sound carries in the flat lands.
They run their ATVs wherever they can. When they are overheated,
they water them up in anyone's yard, then go into the nearest swamp
and howl at the moon. They run through backyards being hoot owls.
They shine flashlights into bedroom windows. It goes on and on. It
might sound funny, but it isn't. People need their sleep. If the present
social life of movies, sports and jobs into the night is not producing
wholesome teens, then a change is needed. Put them to bed early.

MORE PATROLS: Looks like there is more patrolling needed in
the problem neighborhoods and areas that have frequent activity as
in under age hangouts that should curb most of the problems instead
of a curfew. I wish they had more patrolling in the Lakeport area, we
+ seem to have an abundance of impaired drivers leaving some of the
local watering holes and this happens at all times during business
hours and up until closing times but not much of a problem with
teenagers that I'm aware of. I'm all for hiring more law enforcement,
this is one thing the county folks should have a high priority on. More
enforcement equals less crime and a better and safer place to live
which in turn makes everybody happy. Except the people who break
the law, and you know more law enforcement only hinders their ef-
forts.

SPEAK OUT: Someone told me that we can post opinion com-
ments online. How do we do that? Do you print those calls in Speak
Out? Editor's note: go to www.newszap.com and click on Glades
County, then on Local Public Issues Forum. The forum has no limits
on the length of the comments or the number of comments. Some
representative calls from the forums may be printed in Speak Out.

EMAIL THE PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION: Tell them we
don't want to be charged because FPL did not get their proposed
power plant approved. We don't get paid when FPL makes a profit,
why should we pay when they don't? They are a private company,
why should you the customer be on the hook for a proposed building
that didn't get done? If they get their way, the public service commis-
sion will pass on this and allow them to force the charges for this folly
on YOU the consumer. So it works out that they don't lose for being
fools, and you get to pay for them to learn on the job apparently. If I
ran a company and I wanted to expand but then got told no you can't
have the permits for that, I wouldn't be allowed to bill you the cus-
tomer for the money I paid the building company to get plans drawn
up, I would just be out of luck.

Spot's Adventure
Yesterday little Spot was re-
turned to me at 7 p.m. My five
pound Chihuahua/Jack Russell
mix dog had quite an adventure.
While Spot was being pampered
and played with by two young
boys and an 18 month-old baby
in a big nice home, and cavorted
with their pet, a black Labrador,
I was pounding the pavement to
find her. She was on vacation in
Okeechobee, and wasn't sure she
wanted to leave when the owner
met me for her exchange at the
Sunoco gas station in Buckhead
Ridge. I think she really liked be-
ing in a household with so much
going on instead of my boring
house. A young father named
Matthew Jones, who works in
Moore Haven, had rescued her
when he saw her running on
Highway 78 over tlhe bridge at
Harney Pond Canal on Aug. 24.
Just as I had suspected, she got
loose and was running after my
car trying to keep up with me.
It was raining off and on that
afternoon and she was wet when
he stopped on his way home and
Spot jumped willingly into his
vehicle. He thought Spot might
get run over as she was running
in the middle of the road, nose to
the ground, smelling my vehicle.
He took her to the veterinarian to
make sure she didn't have any
diseases but it was the day before
I took signs to the same vet's of-


fice. They did not make the con-
nection. As you might know, I put
out about 50 flyers, her loss was
announced on the radio; I have
advertisements in the local pa-
pers. I sent 60 emails, went to the
dog pound and even put up post-
ers at the Labor Day Festival in
Okeechobee. There wasn't a day
that went by that I didn't look for
her, even had some false leads.
During the time of her loss, I
had the most encouraging words
and assistance from many won-
derful friends and strangers as
well. I can not believe how much
people cared for me and my dog.
I heard many lost dog stories,
too, from people who knew how
I felt. Most people said don't give
up hope. I have learned some les-
sons. Humbled by my negligence
I now have a second chance to
get her a name tag and put it on
her new pink collar the Jones'
bought her. I will not forget to
check all the gates when I leave
the house. I wish to thank every-
one who helped me get through
this experience with their uplift-
ing prayers and kind sympathies.
Finally, I wish you all to know that
I spent time online reading about
how to find a lost dog.
One website claimed that only
16 percent of lost dogs are found
again. But it said that advertising
raises your chances of recovery by
200 percent. That is what worked
in the end. Matt Jones saw a flyer
at a local eatery (Joey's) in Moore


Haven when having his lunch. He
called as soon as he got home. I
am giving the reward money to
the young man. The money was
donated by friends and that was
a miracle of love I am still so very
awed about. Today I am going
around to remove-the signs, and
taking Spot with me so all will
know she's back home happy and
safe. Thank you again to all who
helped me with your prayers, and
your actions of support.
Regards,
Susan Etchey
Glades County resident

Help us,
help others
If you can agree that the Hen-
dry-Glades Mental Health Center
is a valuable community behav-
ioral health resource, won't you
please help us help others? To
offset the loss of state and federal
funding and help our organiza-
tion remain financially viable,
the Hendry-Glades Mental Health
Center (HGMHC) Board has
authorized a fund drive to spe-
cifically raise funds to pay off (or
significantly reduce) the $400,000
mortgage debt we carry on our
buildings. By clearing this debt
sooner, rather than later, we can
redirect almost $50,000 of our
$1.8 million annual operating
budget back into programming.
Hendry-Glades Behavioral


Health Center remains the only
locally managed resource for
mental health and addiction sef-
vices since it was first incorpo-
rated as a non-profit in 1974. We
routinely serve 1,198 adults and
460 children annually (FY 06).
Perhaps you are familiar with
our programs or know some-
one who has benefited from our
treatment services. Please give or
pledge as much as you can af-
ford. The sooner we pay off the
mortgage, the sooner we can
position the organization finan-
cially to make the most of the
limited funding we receive for fu-
ture years. Make your check pay-
able to: "HGMHC, Inc. Mortgage
Fund" and return it today to P.O.
Box 87, LaBelle, FL 33975. Also,
our organization is recognized as
a 501(c)3 charity by the Internal
Revenue Service so do not forget
that your gift is tax deductible.
Thank you in advance for your
generosity and assistance with
this important effort to strengthen
the financial health of the center.
Please know that the HGMHC
Board of Directors pledge to con-
tinue making regular mortgage
payments and will only use these
dedicated donations to pay down
the principal until the mortgage is
paid in full.

Helping folks to tame their turf


By Dan Culbert
UF/IFAS Horticulture Agent
Our long hot summer is al-
most over and normally at this
time of year our lawns are look-
ing their best. This year our lawns
have been challenged due to the
heat and drought, and we've
been busy helping folks to tame
their turf troubles.
Today's column is a little
teaser of what will be covered at
upcoming workshops. One will
be held at our Okeechobee of-
fice this Monday night, 5:30 p.m.
The presentation is free. Besides
going over some Florida Friendly
principles for lawns, a few tricks
will be demonstrated that can
help get your grass back on the
green side.
Choose the right grass
The first step in a beautiful
lawn is to make sure that grass
is the right plant for the right
place. Grass doesn't grow in
shade -- and the belief that there
is a shade-loving grass is a myth.
Other limitations of turfgrass are
salty water or sweet soil. For ex-
ample, if well water is salty or
the soil pH is high because of.
marly, shelly fill, don't even try to
grow Bahiagrass. Some types of
turf need more water than oth-
ers so if irrigation is not going
to be available, choose the more
drought tolerant turfgrasses like
Bahiagrass.
Starting a lawn out right will
avoid many small problems from
becoming major headaches.
Rules for starting a new lawn are
different than those used for ev-
eryday care. When establishing
your Florida lawn, the right time
of year to start our permanent
warm season perennials grasses
is in late spring to fall.
Cool season annual grasses
that are used to provide win-
ter color are sometimes used to


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA

IFAS EXTENSION
over-seed lawns. Using annual
ryegrass seed to green up a win-
ter lawn should wait until mid-
October before planting. But re-
member, this will all burn up by
March or April.
Be sure to start a new lawn
with the right method: seed,
sprigs, plugs and sod are some
of the options, but not all kinds
of grass have all of these choices
available. And once planted, re-
member the three items needed
for success: water, irrigation, and
prayers for rain.
Rules for good 'grass
So you have a good lawn?
Here's how to keep it looking
good:
SRule #1 Mow correctly. For
Bahia and St. Augustine Lawns,
the grass should measure 3-4
inches deep when the mow-
ing is done! If more is taken off,
the roots become shallow, and
drought stress will be worse.
Keep to the rule of 1/3's: don't
remove more than a third of the
height of your grass so if it is 6
inches tall, cut off no more than
two (2) inches, leaving a cor-
rect 4 inch height on your lawn.
Check the cut edge of the grass: if
you see a ragged edge, its time to
sharpen that mower blade. And
here's a tip to make life easier:
leave the clippings on the lawn
- it will not only be less work, but
will let the nutrients recycle from
the clippings into the turfgrass.
Rule #2 Water Correctly.
Proper irrigation involves know-
ing how much to water (.50-.75
inches per application) and how
often to water (don't water un-


til drought symptoms show).
Throughout the year, water the
same amount every time, but
change the frequency as seasons
conditions change. Want to save
more water? Check sprinkler
heads for leaks and clogs. And to
keep up with drought restrictions
and use water wisely, irrigate
around sunrise. We will show
you how to "calibrate" a sprinkler
at our workshop.
Rule #3 Fertilize correctly.
University of Florida turfgrass re-
searchers know that grass plants
need no more than one pound
of ACTUAL nitrogen per 1000
square feet of turfgrass. Actual ni-
trogen is different from the "num-
bers on the bag." To apply the
correct amount of lawn fertilizer,
either read the fertilizer label and
spreader instructions, or be pre-
pared to' do a little math to cali-
brate your spreader. Lawns need
two applications of a complete
fertilizer each year to keep ahead
of pests, and other problems.

Trouble-shooting turf
So many time people come to
the county agents with a request:
"what can I spray to kill this prob-
lem?" With a general question
like that, I can only give a general


response: Follow the above three
Rules for Good Grass and you will
not have to spray anything!
When problems occur and
the "Three Rules" are being fol-
lowed, a new strategy appears:
Know your enemy. Common turf
pests include insects, like Chinch
bugs and Mole crickets (often
the result of improper watering
or fertilization). Turf disease has
not been much of a problem this
year, but in normal years, the way
to deal with disease is to keep the
grass dry. Got nematodes? "Oh
well, in the home landscape,
the only option is to follow the
three rules no nematicides are
labeled for home lawns.
For other pests, the first step
to finding the right "silver bullet"
is to identify the pest or problem.
Think of pesticides as medicines
for the landscape: just as good
physicians don't prescribe medi-
cine with out diagnosis, Exten-
sion agents don't recommend
pesticides without identifying the
problem.
Are turf problems too serious
to solve? When is the right time
to surrender? Here's the 50 per-
cent rule: when half of the lawn
is not the kind of grass that is de-
sired, it's time to start over. ,

Foundation honors major donors


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
CLEWISTON Members of
the Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter Foundation honored their ma-
jor contributors on Wednesday,
Aug. 29, during a recognition lun-
cheon held at the Clewiston Inn.
Yasir Khan and Floyd Salkey, the
new owners of the Clewiston Inn,
sponsored the entire event and
provided a fabulous 'surf and turf'
feast to more than 50 guests.
Robbie Castellanos, Chairman
of the HRMC Foundation, ac-
knowledged and thanked repre-
sentatives from the following fam-
ilies and organizations that have
donated approximately two mil-
lion dollars to the 501 (c)(3) non-
profit organization: Berner Family,
Bonita Bay Group, City Council of
Moore Haven, Couse Family, First
Bank of Clewiston, Florida's Fin-
est Developers -- Yasir Khan and
Floyd Salkey, Hilliard Family, Lucas
Family, Olde Cypress Community
Bank, Ridgdill Family, and United
States Sugar Corporation.
Jeff Barwick, one of Clewis-
ton's community leaders and also
curator of the Clewiston Museum,
was the key-note speaker for the


occasion. Jeff took the group back
in time and spoke of Clewiston's
pioneer settlers such as Joe A.
and Marlin Hilliard, Carl Berner
and J.M. Couse. He explained that
many of those being honored by
the Foundation are descenderts
of those Clewiston leaders.
The Chairman of the Hospital
Board of Authority, Henry Spang,
also expressed his appreciation,
on behalf of the hospital and its
board, for the wonderful out-
pouring of support from the com-
munity.
The Foundation will use the
funds provided towards the con-
struction of the hospital's new
Emergency Room, Laboratory
and Surgery Suite in Clewiston
(ground breaking in 2008) and
their Convenient Care Center in
LaBelle, which will be opening
soon.
Several other Foundation fund-
raisers are in progress, including
the sale of bricks. For additional
information, contact the HRMC
Foundation at (863) 983-2735 or

The Elder Helpline working for Seniors


FT. MYERS The Area Agency
on Aging (AAA) Advisory Council
will holding a Town Hall meet-
ing for residents of Hendry and
Glades counties at the First United
Methodist Church, 300 Avenue L
SW in Moore Haven to raise com-
munity awareness of the Elder
Helpline.
The meeting, to be held on
Oct. 11, at 8:30 a.m., will be the
first in a series designed to edu-
cate the public in the ways the El-
der Helpline provides information
to seniors, their caregivers, and
concerned friends or neighbors
while connecting them with the
appropriate services for seniors
in Southwest Florida. Questions
about prescription drug plans,
concerns with elder abuse, need
for in-home services such as meals
or transportation issues can be ad-
dressed by the Elder Helpline.
"The Elder Helpline has been
serving our communities for
many years, and has recently
undergone an expansion by add-
ing new staff and call lines," says
Leigh Schield, Executive Direc-
tor of the Area Agency on Aging
(AAA) of Southwest Florida.


"During the prescription drug
enrollment frenzy last year we re-
alized that we needed to expand
and be prepared for the increas-
ing needs of the communities
we serve. Over 10 percent of the
500,000 seniors in our service area
are over 85 and there's a probabil-
ity that 60,000 seniors will need
assistance related to Alzheimer's
disease in the coming years," Ms.
Schield added.
The counties served by the
AAA include Lee, Collier, Hendry,
Glades, Charlotte, DeSoto and
Sarasota.
Ms. Schield tells the story of
a man the Elder Helpline has
recently assisted. He called the
helpline for his frail mother in Ft.
Myers who had lost her drivers li-
cense due to poor vision. During
the brief conversation with the
certified information and refer-
ral specialist, the man explained
that he lived in another state and
his mother needs assistance with
transportation to medical appoint-
ments, church and shopping. She
also needed help with meal prep-
aration, and light housekeeping.


The care specialist provided the
man with information regarding
the role of the AAA and arranged
a referral for his mother to Senior
Friendship Center for the appro-
priate services.
In follow up calls with the
man, his mother, and the ser-
vice provider, the care special-
ist learned that this woman also
needed some home modifica-
tions to keep her safe and subse-
quently linked with another part-
ner agency that could assist her.
With the services provided by the
helpline and its partner agencies,
the woman was able to remain
in her home which, Ms. Schield
says, is one of the major goals of
the AAA.
The AAA manages the Elder
Helpline and, according to Schield,
"works with any agency, com-
pany, organization or group that
provides quality services to the
aging population in our commu-
nities. We are constantly updating
our database in order to have the
most current service information
available to our callers."
To reach the Elder Helpline


call 1-866-413-5337 or (239) 332-
3019.
A second town hall meeting
to discuss the Elder Helpline with
residents of Lee County will be
held in Ft. Myers at Lee Memorial
Hospital Auditorium, Nov. 16.

Health issues



are in the news


AP photo/University of Florida/IFAS/Josh Wickham
Food safety expert Keith Schneider scrutinizes day-old su-
shi rolls in his office at UF's main campus in Gainesville.
Mr. Schneider says consumers who buy ready-to-eat sushi
from supermarkets should throw away any leftovers after 24
hours, due to spoilage concerns. Take-out and doggie bags
from sushi restaurants should be consumed the day they're
purchased, he said.


Sushi to go? Don't



let it languish


By Tom Nordlie
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE -- Grabbing a
box of ready-to-eat sushi from the
grocery store? Say sayonara to any
leftovers still in the fridge after 24
hours, a University of Florida food
safety expert says.
"Any signs of spoilage are bad,
but just because it looks good
doesn't mean it's safe," said Keith
Schneider, an associate professor
of food science with UF's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci,
ences.
Take-out and doggie bags from
sushi restaurants should be eaten
when you get home or thrown
away, he said.
That's because foods can inter-
act when they're placed together.
Inside a sushi roll, bacteria some-
times find ideal conditions in the
spaces where moist ingredients
come in contact with dry ones
or where foods with different pH
meet. The result: faster spoilage.
"Sushi is meant to be con-
sumed the day you buy it," said
Mr. Schneider, who co-authored
a document on safe sushi prepa-
i 'ration in retail operations with
UF seafood expert Steve Otwell.
"Each food item has a different
spoilage rate so it's difficult to put
a shelf life on (sushi)."
Mr. Schneider says sushi hasn't
been associated with many re-
ports of foodborne illness, but he
nonetheless advocates a better-
safe-than-sorry approach.
The term "sushi" covers many
foods made with vinegar-treated
rice and raw or cooked items
such as meat, seafood and veg-
etables. Probably the best-known
sushi varieties are makizushi, rolls
wrapped in seaweed and some-
times coated with rice; and nigiri-
zushi, rice mounds topped with a
slice of fish or other seafood.
Raw fish might seem the big-
gest food-safety hazard in sushi,
but Mr. Schneider says that's not
the case -- t's often frozen and
thawed before use, to kill para-
sites.
Actually, rice is more likely to
cause problems, he said. A bac-
terium called Bacillus cereus can
grow in cooked rice if it's not
prepared and handled properly.
That's one reason vinegar is es-
sential to good sushi rice-it pro-
vides acidity that discourages the
bacterium.
Mr. Schneider cautions con-
sumers who buy ready-to-eat.
sushi to minimize the chance it
will warm up. Take it from the


cooler just before purchase, bring
it home quickly and refrigerate it
immediately unless you plan to
eat it right away.
"It's not one of those things
you want to leave on the coun-
ter," he said.
Packaged sushi sold in super-
markets is often made by spe-
cialty companies via franchises
within the stores. The biggest
such company in North America
is Advanced Fresh Concepts, or
AFC, based in Rancho Domin-
guez, Calif., which sells Southern
Tsunami brand sushi in 130 su-
permarket chains, according to
the company's Web site.
Jeff Seiler, AFC's compliance
director, agrees with Schneider's
24-hour recommendation and
suggests consumers eat ready-to-
eat sushi as soon as they get home
to ensure the best flavor.
Though sushi is often associ-
ated with pricey restaurants, in
the past decade inexpensive sushi
has become more available and
popular in the United States, said
Sasha Issenberg, a Philadelphia-
based journalist who authored
"The Sushi Economy: Globaliza-
tion and the Making of a Modern
Delicacy," published in May.
"Wal-Mart opened in Plano,
Texas, with a sushi bar in it," he
said. "I think people see it as sort
of a clean, healthy alternative to
other fast foods at the same level
of convenience."
Statistics on ready-to-eat sushi
sales are sparse, but Issenberg re-
ported in his book that one survey
indicated 30 million U.S. adults
eat sushi regularly.
And though the idea of grocery
shoppers picking up packaged su-
shi along with dog food and dish
soap may rankle some aficiona-
dos, Mr. Issenberg says from a
historical perspective, this trend is
simply a return to sushi's roots.
In the late 19th century, sushi
was a low-cost snack sold by To-
kyo street vendors, he said. Only
later did this proto-fast food be-
come glamorous and expensive.
The first U.S.,sushi bar opened in
Los Angeles' Little Tokyo in 1964,
an upscale establishment fre-
quented by Japanese-American
businessmen.
"In Japan, (sushi's) origins are
far closer to the experience of go-
ing to a supermarket and getting
takeout and bringing it home,
than actually sitting down in a
sushi bar and spending $100 on
your dinner and eating it there,"
he said.


Health issues are often in the
news.
In the news this week, a new
study found children contract
germs on the playground from
playground equipment and from
contact with other children. I
have to wonder why anyone had
to conduct a study to find that
out. The researchers suggested
parents require their children to
wash their hands after playing on
a public playground big surprise
- and to always wash their hands
before eating. (For this they con-
duct a study?)
Also in the news this week,
a frightening statistic for parents
whose children have been begg
ing them for shoes with embed-
ded skates. More than one-third
of children who use such shoes
injure themselves while learning
to use them. Most common in-
juries are to the wrist and elbow.
So if your kids do have the skater
shoes, make sure you supervise
them. And you might want to in-
sist they wear safetyguards. Now
I have to wonder if someone will
want to do a study on children
who wear skate shoes on a pub-
lic playground.
A serious item in the news
this week is the increasing prob-
lem of diabetes. The number of
Americans suffering from diabe-
tes is increasing. While one risk
of diabetes is due to heredity, the
increase is attributed to the Amer-
ican lifestyle of poor diet and not
enough exercise. More than one-
third Americans are overweight,
which is one of the risk factors for
diabetes. If your family has a his-
tory of diabetes, it's a good idea
to have regular screenings. Dia-
betes can do permanent damage
to your body before you notice
any signs of the disease.
Good news for consumers
might come from a proposal
from the Food and Drug Admin-
istration to change food labeling
to make it easier .for shoppers
to make better food choices. In-
stead of trying to read the fine
print on the back of the label,
shoppers may learn to scan nutri-
tion symbols. The FDA is holding
hearings on labeling proposals
this week, but don't expect to see
any changes at the supermarket
soon. Any change would take
several years to implement.
Fat babies and toddlers are
often viewed as "healthy," but
that may not be the case, ac-
cording a new study detailed in
the September issue of "Pediat-
rics" magazine. According to the
study, pudgy toddlers are more
likely to suffer from anemia that
their slimmer counterparts. The
reason, researchers found, is that
these babies are given too much
juice or cow's milk to drink in
their bottles. They fill up on juice
and milk when they should be
starting to eat more solid foods,
including those high in iron such
as meat, beans and fortified
breads.
The study found that children
in daycare were less likely to
be anemic than those who did
not attend daycare. Research-
ers speculated that the daycare
managers pay more attention to
nutritional balance when plan-
ning meals. They also found that
Hispanic toddlers were twice
as likely as non-Hispanics to be
anemic. Anemic toddlers may
appear healthy and seem to have

plenty of energy. However, iron-
deficiency in children could con-
tribute to other problems later in
life. Parents should discuss their


A
Healthier "
Life 1

with Katrina Elsken

toddler's diet with the child's pe-
diatrician, and be limit fruit juice
and whole milk according to the
pediatrician's recommendations.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise pro-
gram, consult your doctor.
This is especially important
if you are on any prescription
medications. Some drugs in-
teract badly with foods that
would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

UFLIFAS
Tropical soda apple is an
invasive plant and toxic to
horses. Birds and other ani-
mals can spread seeds that
are in their digestive tracts if
they eat the fruit of the plant.


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Two potential problems with
"gentlemen farmers" and back-
yard livestock come to mind:
weeds in pasture that are toxic
to some animals and landscape
plants that they will joyfully eat,
some that are toxic. Either of
these can be bad.
In Florida, there are a number
of toxic weeds. "Poisonous plants
(e.g., Crotalaria, black nightshade,
spiny pigweed, lantana, etc.) are
commonly found throughout
Florida. Animals do not usually
choose to graze most poisonous
plants when forage is abundant;
however, when quality forage is


Backyard
Barnyard
limited due to poor growing con-
ditions or overstocking they may
graze these plants," according to
the University of Florida Institute
of Plant and Agricultural Sciences
(UFIFAS).
Ideally, of course, you have re-
moved weeds from your pasture.
and mowed or "weed-eatered"
the few troublesome plants that
remain before they go to seed.
But let's just say you just fenced
a new area. What to look for
depends on the breed that will
graze it. Don't forget, weeds cut


down on the amount of grass to
eat. Right now Dog fennel seems
to be growing, well, like a weed.
More weeds equal less grass.
Horses in particular will eat
what's bad for them, particularly
if they are hungry. They will not
eat grass grown up in the manure
you forgot to remove. Around
here, tropical soda apple and
bracken fern are two bad weeds
for horses. Both are easy to spot
when you know what to look for.
Bracken fern is also toxic to
cattle, sheep and goats.

Study shows infected fruit does not spread citrus canker


Timothy Gottwald, a plant
pathologist at the USDA Horticul-
ture Research Laboratory in Fort
Pierce, and two other researchers
recently announced that a study
they conducted earlier this year in-
dicates that citrus canker cannot
be spread by introducing infected
fruit into a grove.
Mr., Gottwald drew chuckles
from those attending the 46th


annual Citrus Packinghouse Day
when he showed a video of him-
self and others batting infected
grapefruit into trees as part of the
research. USDA had banned ship-
ments of fresh citrus from Florida
packinghouses to 10 other citrus-
producing states and U.S. territo-
ries since Aug. 2006, following the


2004 and 2005 hurricanes. The
agency also based its decision
on earlier research showing the
possibility of canker being spread
from infected fruit in a packing-
house setting. That study was later
updated following implementa-


tion of new sanitation procedures
and indicated a much lower likeli-
hood of contamination. This latest
study measured whether the bac-
teiia would spread to other trees.
It found no spread even over a
distance as short as 1 meter.

McCollum brings CyberSafety into Florida schools


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Bill McCollum has an-
nounced that beginning this fall;
the Child Predator CyberCrime
Unit will take the Attorney Gen-
eral's cybersafety program into
schools statewide. Speaking to
students, teachers and school
superintendents at Rampello
Downtown Partnership School in
Tampa, Attorney General McCol-
lum stressed the importance of
teaching Florida's children about
cybersafety.
"Our goal is to provide a com-
prehensive online personal safety
program for all students in Florida
and empower them to recognize,
avoid and report instances of pred-
ators attempting to exploit them
through the Internet," said Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum. "As
technology continues to evolve
and have a more significant role
in our children's lives, we must
take every precaution to keep
them safe. That process begins
with education and outreach."
In partnership with the Florida As-
sociation of District School Super-
intendents and with the support
of both the Florida School Re-
source Officers Association and
the Florida Sheriffs Association,
the Attorney General's victim ad-
vocates will present the 50-minute
cybersafety program in public and
private middle and high schools
throughout the state. Designed
to empower children to use the
Internet safely, the program com-
bines real-life stories and exam-
ples to help students identify the
ways they could be victimized
online as well as important safety
tips to protect themselves from
internet child predators.


The Attorney General's Of-
fice cybersafety program will
specifically target middle and
high school students and will
endeavor to educate them about
online personal safety. During the
presentations, the students will
receive information about inter-
net dangers as well as the tactics
used by online predators. They
will also learn what constitutes a
cybercrime and how to report it.
An open line of communication
between the students and the vic-
tim advocates will be strongly en-
couraged to give the opportunity
for private disclosure. Students
will be taught how to recognize
when a friend is in Cyberr danger"
and what they can do to help. The
victim advocates will offer coun-
'seling to any child who discloses
victimization and can refer any
reported offenses to law enforce-
ment for investigation.
In March, the Attorney General
and the Florida Association of
District School Superintendents
formed a partnership aimed at
educating students on cybersafety,
focusing on planning, construct-
ing, and maintaining the Attorney
General's Cybersafety Educational
Initiative. Attorney General McCol-
lum emphasized the importance
of the support provided by the
District School Superintendents
noting they will be instrumental
in helping reach Florida's school
children with the message of cy-
bersafety, which was echoed by
the Florida Association of District
School Superintendents.
"Florida's superintendents are
eager to be a part of this creative
and much needed approach to
ensure the safety of our children.


We applaud the Attorney Gen-
eral in his efforts and are excited
about the partnership," said Bill
Montford, Chief Executive Of-
ficer of the Florida Association
of District School Superinten-
dents. "Our children will be bet-
ter prepared to deal with the po-
tential dangers of encountering
predators through the internet."
The Florida Association of School
Resource Officers (SRO) has also
committed its support to the At-
torney General's efforts. The SRO
Program is a collaborative effort
by certified law enforcement offi-
cers, educators, students, parents
and the community to offer law
related educational programs in
the schools. The purpose of the
program is to reduce crime, drug
abuse and violence and provide a
safe school environment.
"I commend Attorney General
McCollum for placing such a high
priority on our children's safety,"
said Robert Tricquet, president,
Florida School Resource Officers
Association. "The association
is committed to supporting the
Office of the Attorney General
to ensure Florida students are
provided with the information
needed to keep them safe while
online." The administrators of
the school program will share
appropriate information with the
school resource officers in the lo-
cal schools so they can keep their
eyes and ears open to potential
"hot spots." They can then focus
on those students and their spe-
cific concerns.
To compliment the school
program, the Child Predator
CyberCrime Unit has also de-
veloped the Internet Student

Advisory Council, designed to
match technology-savvy teenag-
ers with the unit's cybercrime
law enforcement team. The
unit's investigators will work
closely with the students to
identify new and popular inter-
net trends, including those that
could be potentially harmful to
young people. Using informa-
tion provided by the student
advisors, presenters will speak
to kids in their own language
and empower them to protect
themselves and ofe another.
CyberSafety Background:
Launch of Educational Aware-
ness Campaign.
In May, Attorney general Mc-
Collum's office launched a new
cybersafety website, located at
http://www.safeflorida.net/safe-
surf, to provide valuable infor-
mation to adults, teens and kids
about staying safe while surfing
the internet. The SafeSurf chil-
dren's page includes several en-
tertaining and educational games
that teach internet safety. The
teen SafeSurf page offers tips on

New Laws, Stricter Penalties, and
the Expansion of the Child Preda-
tor CyberCrime Unit
This spring, the CyberCrimes
against Children Act of 2007 was
passed by the Florida Legislature
and signed into law by the Gov-
ernor, championed by Attorney
General McCollum; this law now
positions Florida as a national
leader in the legal fight against
child pornography and the inter-
net solicitation of children. The
new law increases penalties for
the possession or distribution of
child pornography online and
creates a new, separate penalty
for internet predators who com-
municate with a child online and
then travel to meet that child for
the specific purpose of further
sexually abusing him or her:
In addition to increasing the
penalties for the possession and
distribution of child pornography
and for those who travel to meet
children, the law also increases
penalties for offenders who mis-
represent their age to seduce a
child over the internet. This be-
havior, known as "grooming,' is
intended to make a child believe
the offender is closer in age to the
child, therefore encouraging the
child to feel more comfortable
conversing with the offender. The
new law also gives the Attorney
General's Office of Statewide


Prosecution jurisdiction to pros-
ecute child pornography and in-
ternet child sexual abuse cases.
The Office of the Attorney
General collaborates with the
Florida Sheriffs' Association, and
Sheriffs' offices statewide, in a
collaborative effort to bring those
who prey on our children online
to justice. The association was
extremely supportive of the At-
torney General's efforts in passing
the CyberCrimes Against Children
Act of 2007 and continues to sup-
port the efforts of his office.
"Attorney General McCollum
has appropriately put the issue
of online child predators to the
forefront where it belongs," said
Baker Sheriff Joey Dobson, Presi-
dent of the Florida Sheriffs Associ-
ation. "These are sick individuals
who prey on our children's inno-
cence and with tougher laws and
stronger penalties we will now be
better armed in our fight to stop
them."
The Office of the Attorney
General also received funding to
expand the Child Predator Cy-
berCrime Unit across the state.
Over the next year, they will begin
opening new units with 50 addi-
tional cybercrime staff dedicated
to investigating,, arresting and
prosecuting internet child preda-
tors and child pornographers. For

General's cybersafety initiative,

Sen. Aronberg visits RCMA Center


MOORE HAVEN --State Sen.
Dave Aronberg, D-Greenacres,
visited young children-from rural,
low-income families during his
recent mobile office tour, which
took him from Palm Beach Coun-
ty east to Charlotte and Lee Coun-
ties with numerous stops along
the way.
In Moore Haven, Sen. Aron-
berg visited the Booker T. Wash-
ington Child Development Center,
operated by the Redlands Chris-
tian Migrant Association (RCMA),
and the adjacent Glades County
Child Development Center oper-
ated by Child Care of Southwest
Florida. Both serve children of

low-income families.
"Children in rural areas de-
serve the same high-quality child
care as that provided for children
in the cities," Sen. Aronberg said
after reading with two year olds.
"Especially for children in low-
income areas, we have a respon-
sibility to see that they get equal
opportunities."
Founded in 1965, RCMA pro-
rides quality child care and early
education for more than 7,500
children of farm workers and ru-
ral, low-income families through-
put Florida, including approxi-
mately 150 in Glades County.
RCMA can serve up to 75 in-
fants and toddlers at the Booker T.
Washington center, which offers
Early Head Start programs. Early
Head Start serves low-income
families with infants and toddlers
and pregnant women. Its mission
is to promote healthy prenatal
outcomes for pregnant women,
enhance the development of very
young children, and promote

Sen. Aronberg's tour, from
Sept. 4-5, started in Canal Point
and included stops in Belle Glade,
Muse, Alva and Lehigh Acres be-
fore culminating in Charlotte
County. Elected to the Senate in
November 2002, Aronberg repre-
sents District 27, which includes
portions of Palm Beach, Hendry,
Glades, Lee and Charlotte Coun-
ties.
"People in the rural areas
don't get to visit my offices in the
city, so we come to them," Aron-
berg explained of the mobile of-
fice tour.
RCMA has been serving Glades
County families since 1989.
Based in Immokalee, RCMA has
more than 70 centers, including
two charter schools, in 20 Florida


counties.
"Children and families in low-
income, rural areas are often
overlooked," said Barbara Main-
ster, RCMA executive director.
"We're very. pleased that Sena-
tor Aronberg is concerned about
early childhood education in ru-
ral Florida and honored that he
spent time with our children and
staff in Moore Haven."
Florida's largest nonprofit
childcare provider, RCMA is
funded by local, state and federal
grants, as well as the generos-
ity of businesses, individuals, the
United Way and other organiza-
tions. Donations and volunteers
are always welcome. For more

Arrest
Continued From Page 1
The detective's report further
explains that Cora and Baker fled
through a field and down Corral
Court where they were picked
up by Sabrena Baker. The injured
suspect was then driven to Hen-


dry Regional Medical center via
C.R. 720.
Later, when investigators were
searching the crime scene, they
found a female's handbag con-
taining black zip-ties that were
connected together. Investigators
speculated they might have been
intended to bind or tie hands and
feet. Several spent rounds of am-


munition were found lying on the
kitchen floor and several more
were on the hallway floor lead-
ing to the back door. One hand
gun was found in the trailer and
another was found on the ground
near the back door.
Soon afterwards, Herbert,
Baker and Sabrena Baker were
arrested in connection with the


home invasion. Regina Cora was
arrested nearly three months later
after she recovered from her in-
juries and returned to the sher-
iff's office Aug. 6. She has been
charged with attempted murder,
aggravated battery with a deadly
weapon and home invasion.

Creek
Continued From Page 1
rarity -- an exquisite treasure.
Winding and wending through
prairies and marshlands on its
way to Lake Okeechobee. It is
one of nature's uncommon and
true wonders -- home and habitat
to countless native creatures and
critters.
Depending upon season and
Mother Nature herself, the water
that claims the name of Fisheat-
ing Creek meanders in all direc-
tions, feeding a slough, settling
over a swamp, swelling a stream,
making one-tree islands of na-
tive mop-headed cabbage palms,
pines and cypress that appear to
float on a silent green sea, that at
times can be nearly a mile wide.
Little runs and creeks seem
to reach out and take off on their
own, creating and framing pic-
turesque patches of space -- little
rooms -- that just wait for an art-
ist's skill and admiration.
Hammocks bordering the
Creek seem to swell or shrink
overnight, according to the
creek's fluctuating elevations.
Native ferns frame the coming'
and goin' banks, receding and
reclaiming through all the end-
less water levels of the year, while
resplendent orchids, brilliant bro-
meliads, lichens, miles of trailing
moss and twining vines hang in
tropical profusion all about.
Little spits of land jut out here
and there like pointing fingers
where swirling eddies comb the
shifting banks, exposing all sorts
of miniscule creeping, crawling
creatures. And in their own inimi-
table way, wildflowers frame the
water's edge in patterns accord-
ing to their own fancy and the
wind.
As one artist explained: "I can

capture enough of the raw, ma-
jestic beauty. It is different every
day, even every hour at times.
The immutable promise of the
Creek: every enchanted image,
every scene, always changing, yet
always the same -- an immeasur-
able gift. I can paint these images
with all the eloquent nuances of
natural light and color shadings.
But how do you paint a holiness
or the serenity of spirit that seeps
all through your being? The silent
mystery and magnetism of the
Creek -- as old as the Creek itself
-- dan be experienced but not ex-
plained."
But there are those who vow
that no written words, nor any
painting can do justice to the
awesome artistry and incredible
beauty.of Fisheating Creek.
Over a century and a half
ago, a map was found giving the
Creek the name Thlothlopopka-
Hatchee, an Indian term mean-
ing stream or river where fish are
eaten.
Florida's River of Grass, The
Everglades, is said to be unlike
any other place in the world. It is
the same with
Fisheating Creek. There is no
other like it any other place in the
world.
According to Harris Friedman,
Secretary Save Our Creeks, efforts
are going forward to secure fund-
ing to restore the Cypress Knee
Museum located on the south
side of Fisheating Creek Camp-
ground.
From Arcadia, go east on
Route 70 to U.S. 27, turn south
proceeding to Palmdale. The
Creek is a fraction of a mile south
of Palmdale on the west side of
U.S. 27. From LaBelle, go north
across the river on Route 29 to
S.R. 27, turn north for a fraction
of a mile. Fisheating Creek is on
the west side of S.R. 27.

The Cowboys win in Hendry County championship


LaBelle bests
Clewiston 28-0
In the annual rivalry for the
bragging rights for Hendry Coun-
ty football, the LaBelle Cowboys
wasted little time Friday night in
verifying the outcome. The Cow-
boys posted four quick first quar-
ter touchdowns and then coasted
in a 28-0 plastering of the Tigers.
The Tigers were playing without
two starters, Tight End/Defensive
End Delvin Hughes and Flanker
John Runkles who sat out the
contest for disciplinary. Both play-
ers had missed the Tiger practice
session on Labor Day.
Clewiston started the game as
cold and made a string of mis-
takes during the first 12 minutes
of play. The Cowboys were op-
portunistic and took advantage of
every Tiger miscue in that open-
ing period. After kicking off and
holding Clewiston, the Cowboys
took possession near midfield.
On the third snap, Tailback Ga-
briel Puente found a gaping hole
in the line and then veered to the
end zone corner untouched for a
40 yard score.
Clewiston tried to get their
offense started, but Cowboy de-
fender Freddy Robbins quickly
picked off an Isandro Marquez
pass and returned it to the Tiger
11 yard line. Two plays later, Full-
back Brandon Villerral ran a coun-
ter off the left side for the score.
The Tiger offense, awestruck by
this time, lost the ball again on
the very first play of their next
possession. Quarterback Isandro
Marquez was hit in the backfield
and lost the ball with Cowboy
Defensive Tackle Blake Barnes
pouncing on the ball at the Tiger
19. The Cowboys scored again


on their fifth play with Wingback
Caleb Jordan carried the ball for
a 3 yard touchdown with 3:49 re-
maining in the first quarter.
Then, LaBelle got their final
score just 14 seconds later when
Cornerback Dale Thompson
snared another errant Marquez
pass and returned it 27 yards.
Cowboy Kicker Rey Hernandez
converted all four extra points.
After the first period scoring
binge, the Tiger defense held the
Cowboys pretty much in check
the remainder of the night. By the
second half, the Tiger defenders
were much more aggressive and
made some nice tackles. Line-
backer Alex Rubio led the defense
with 9 solo tackles, an assist and
two sacks. Defensive End Willie
Armstrong also made some solid
hits ending up with eight tackles
and two assists. Cornerback Zack
Waddell had three solo tackles,
two in the open field, and three
assists.
Offensively, Clewiston just
couldn't find continuity. They did
manage a couple of nice drives
in the second half, but penalties
eventually stifled their effort. On
the evening they did manage 170
yards rushing on 25 carries, an
impressive 6.8 yards per attempt.
But on the scoreboard, where it
really mattered, the Tigers had
nothing to show for the night.
Tailback DarriS Hughes finished
with 87 yards on 13 attempts and
Colin Ricketts chipped in 57 yards
on 7 tries.
Puente led all rushers for the
night garnering 168 yards on 20
carries. The rivalry between the.
schools goes back for 30 games
and this was only the fourth vic-
tory for the Cowboys in the se-
ries. But, this one was extra sweet
for the Cowboys and Coach Ron


Clewiston Tigers Tailback Colin Ricketts takes off on a 12-yard gain.

Things don't get easier for

Deandre Holley shows his versatility in Raiders win


Blue Devils,
Gators come out
on top again

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WELLINGTON Glades Cen-
tral senior all-purpose player De-
andre Holley displayed his well-
known versatility, playing a big
role in the Raiders' 42-22 victory
against the Palm Beach Central
Broncos last Friday night.
Holley had a hand in four of
Glades Central's six.touchdowns,
passing and catching for one
touchdown each and rushing for
two touchdowns of his own.
Earlier in the game, however,
in the first quarter, the Raiders
found themselves quickly falling
behind the Broncos. Less than
two minutes into the game, Palm
Beach Central junior quarterback
Travis Simmons led an 80-yard
opening drive, which culminated
in a 36-yard touchdown pass to
Broncos junior Jon Bostic.
At that point, the Broncos led
7-0.
Palm Beach Central struck
again on a 64-yard touchdown
pass from Simmons to Bostic
with 2:54 left in the first quarter.
Nobody thought that the Raiders
would be down by two touch-
downs this early in the game.
But the Raiders did not panic.
On first down at the Palm
Beach Central 28-yard line, Mc-
Coy threw a hitch pass to Travis
Benjamin. It seemed as though
one Broncos defender was going
to tackle Benjamin shortly after
the catch, but the wide receiver's
speed was too much as he sprint-
ed toward the end zone with 2:16
left in the first quarter.
This would prove to be the
Raiders' first of five unanswered
touchdown drives in the game.
With 8:42 left in the second
quarter, McCoy threw for his sec-
ond touchdown pass, this time to
Glades Central junior Rantavious
Wooten on a 23-yard pass.
From there, it seemed as if the
Broncos just could not respond
to the Raiders' strikes, as Glades
Central's defense forced Palm
Beach Central's last two drives
in the first half to stall with two


INI/Naji Tobias
At Friday night's football game between the Glades Central Raiders and Palm Beach Central
Broncos at Palm Beach Central High School in Wellington, Raiders quarterback Deandre Hol-
ley right is discussing with Raiders wide receiver Travis Benjamin left the touchdown
drive, which saw Holley connect on a 50-yard TD pass to Raiders wide receiver Eddie Poole.
The two were very excited about putting the game out of reach at that point Glades Central
was leading Palm Beach Central 35-14 with 9:36 left in the fourth quarter. The final score was
42-22 in favor of Glades Central.


three-and-outs.
Later in the second quarter, the
Raiders decided to shake things
up a little bit by inserting Hol-
ley in as running back for a few
plays, which ended with a 19-yard
touchdown run up the middle of
the field with 2:06 left in the sec-
ond quarter. At that point, Glades
Central gained its first lead with a
score of 21-14 and never looked
back.
The Raiders extended their
lead to 28-14 with two seconds
left in the second quarter on Mc-
Coy's third touchdown pass of the
game. That touchdown pass was
a 16-yard bomb to Holley.
In the third quarter, there
would be no touchdowns from
either team Palm Beach Central
was just hoping it could stay in
the game at that point. Late in the
third quarter, it seemed as if the
Broncos were going to claw their
way back into it, mustering up a
promising drive that resulted in
Palm Beach Central gaining three


first downs to the Glades Central
40 yard line.
But by the time the'Broncos
reached the Raiders 35 yard line
to end the quarter, there was a
feeling that the Raiders would
somehow put a stop to this drive.
That's exactly what happened
when Raiders senior defensive
back Da'Coby Wooten made pos-
sibly the most important defen-
sive play of the game. On fourth
and four at the Raiders' 34 yard
line early in the fourth quarter,
it looked as if the Broncos quar-
terback was going to complete a
potential first down pass to Bron-
cos senior running back Zedrick
Joseph. But Wooten broke up the
play, essentially ending any hope
that the Broncos would regain the
lead they once had in the game.
Glades Central put the game
out of reach shortly after that big
play, when Holley connected on a
50-yard touchdown pass to Raid-
ers senior wide receiver Eddie
Poole with 9:36 left in the fourth


quarter. At that point, the Raiders
led the Broncos 35-14.
Later in the fourth, Palm Beach
Central made. a dent into that big
lead, blocking a Raiders punt with
3:41 left in the game to make it 35-
16. Only 10 seconds later, Joseph
returned a 65-yard kickoff return
for a touchdown, making the
score 35-22.
But in the end, Holley put the
icing on the cake with a game-
ending 11-yard touchdown run
with 1:12 left in the game.
If anyone is going to beat the
Raiders, allowing 401 yards to
them 205 rushing and 196 pass-
ing certainly won't get it done.
Committing seven penalties and
missing a host of tackles won't get
it done, either.
John B. Timmons, the Palm
Beach Central head coach, sums
up the game for the Broncos.
"Glades Central is a very talent-
ed and well-coached team," the
Broncos head coach said. "We
knew the Raiders weren't going to


fold in the game. We made some
mistakes and they capitalized
on it. That's what great football
teams do."
Coach Timmons briefly
touched on what he believes the
Broncos need to improve on.
"We need to tackle better and
our penalties killed us," Coach
Timmons said. "Coverage wise,
we need to get better also. Glades
Central came out throwing
- they're fast and they made the
plays they had to. They did a hell
of a job tonight."
Glades Central head coach
Willie Snead reflected on how the
game went for the Raiders.
"It took us a while to get go-
ing," Coach Snead said. "I don't
know if it was because it was our
first road game or what, but our
coaches were. frustrated in the
beginning of the game. The kids
didn't panic we were just flat
in the first quarter. Some of our
guys came in later on and gave us
a spark and after that, we just got
going from there."
The Raiders head coach
weighed in on Holley's perfor-
mance in particular the all-pur-
pose player rushed for 66 yards,
passed for 72 yards and caught a
16-yard touchdown pass to give
him 154 total yards for the night.
Also, Holley was the Raiders punt-
er for the game.
"Deandre is a leader with four
years of varsity experience and
has played every position for us,"
the head coach said. "He is very
smart, knows the system and is
very valuable to the team."
The Broncos finished with 258
total yards, with 111 passing yards
from Simmons and 87 of the 147
rushing yards from senior running
back David Ahola.
The Glades Central Raiders,
who now have a 2-0 record, play
tomorrow night at Palm Beach
Gardens, who lost 34-8 to the Pa-
hokee Blue Devils in the season
opener. Palm Beach Central, who
is now 1-1, next play at Inlet Grove
for tomorrow night's contest.
Pahokee 39, King's Acad-
emy 17: The Pahokee Blue Devils
earned their second victory of the
season with a convincing victory
over the King's Academy Lions.
Once again, Blue Devils senior
quarterback Anthony Sheppard


threw for 235 yards. Only this
time, he threw for two scores,
with wide receivers Nu'Kese Rich-
ardson and Antavious Wilson
scoring touchdown catches each.
Sheppard also had a. 1-yard
touchdown run in the second
quarter.
Blue Devils senior running
back Janoris Jenkins finished with
14 rushes for 132 yards, including
a 25-yard touchdown run in the
second quarter.
The Blue Devils racked up 456
total yards, which included 221 of
them from the ground. Wilson ac-
counted for 113 of the Blue Devils
235 receiving yards.
King's Academy had a good
running game with 163 yards
141 of them which came from
Lions senior running back Myles
Jackson. But the Lions were only
able to account for 50 passing
yards, giving King's Academy a to-
tal of 213 yards for the game.
Also, the Lions were inter-
cepted twice by the Blue Devils
defense something they could
not overcome.
Tomorrow night, Pahokee,
who is 2-0 and is the 14"'-ranked
football team in the country, next
play at Palm Beach Lakes. King's
Academy, who is 1-1, hosts Amer-
ican Heritage.
Glades Day 25, Benjamin
12: Glades Day junior quarter-
back Bo Schlecter was 9-for-14
with 207 yards passing and three
touchdowns, while senior run-
ning back Ernest Jackson lead the
rushing attack with 95 yards in the
Gators win.
Gators junior wide receiver
Jarrett Swaby had two receptions
both were touchdown catches
of 32 and 42 yards, respectively.
Jackson also caught a touchdown
pass from Schlecter a 57-yard
strike in the second quarter.
Glades Day finished with 365
total yards, while its stingy de-
fense limited the Benjamin Bucs
to 144 yards for the game.
Glades Day plays at home to-
morrow night against the Clewis-
ton Tigers. The Gators, 2-0, will be
playing a Tigers team that is 0-2,
including a 28-0 blowout loss to
the La Belle Cowboys last Friday
night.

'Youth Alive' group takes services to the ball field


By Laura Mathis
MOORE HAVEN Last
Wednesday night, Sept. 5, the
Youth Group from the First Baptist
Church of Moore Haven "Youth


Alive" brought their Wednesday
night service out to the commu-
nity. The members of the 'Youth
Alive' group ran the whole eve-
ning. First, Susan Mathis led the
entire group with a blessing for


the food. Then everyone enjoyed
hamburgers and hot dogs, donat-
ed by the F.C.A.
Lindsey Ringstaff welcomed
everyone and explained a little bit
about what we do on Wednesday


nights. Then we had several of
our youth lead everyone in praise
and worship "Youth Alive" style,
and others held up the words so
everyone in the crowd could join
in.
Youth Alive member, Hunter
Ward introduced our speaker for
the night, (Mr., Coach, Minister)
Vincent Lewis. He had a great
message for everyone there,
young and old alike.
"We are all special to God and
we all have a "talent" so we should


use it for HIM", explained Minister
Lewis. Lastly, Macy Randolph in-
troduced'our softball coaches for
the night, Mr. Jamie Brown and
Mr. Tommy Hare. Then everyone
enjoyed a fun game of softball,
whether they were playing or sit-
ting in the stands cheering!
There are so many people we
would like to THANK and we
hope to not leave out anyone.
First and foremost, our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ, for everyone
having a fun and safe time and for


the great weather; Our Church
for allowing us to take our ser-
vice outside the church building;
F.C.A. for all the food and drinks;
Padro Navarro for cooking; Greg
and Mary Bond, Crystal Drake
and John and Sheryl Huysman for
serving; Vincent Lewis for deliver-
ing the message; Jamie Brown
and Tommy Hare for coaching;
Donnie Murphy, Alvin Ward and
everyone else who helped with
setting up --thank you for using
your "talents" for the Lord!

The people opposed themselves!


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
The Apostle Paul said that
"no man every yet hated his own
body" (Ephesians 5:28-29). Nor-
mally speaking, this is true. But
there have been and are situations
where it would seem that some
people actually opposes them-
selves, and even hated themselves,
if we took them for what they said
and the way they acted to mean
anything. Let us notice some in-
teresting illustrations along this
line from the scriptures.
Starting with the book of Prov-
erbs, we read; "He that refuseth
instruction despiseth his own
soul: but he that heareth reproof
getteth understanding" (Proverbs
15:21). Then as wisdom speaks
out in Proverbs 8:35-36, she says,
"For whoso findeth me findeth
life, and shall obtain favour of the
Lord. But he that sinneth against


me wrongeth his own soul: all
they that hate me love death."
Proverbs 29:34 states, "Whoso
is partner with a thief hateth his
own soul..." The end results of
being unwise, and disregarding
wisdom, is the same as if we ac-
tually hated ourselves. We can be
"pretty" dumb sometimes.
Some interesting Scriptures
appear in the New Testament on
the subject. In the book of Acts
we have a record of the speech
that Paul delivered in the Jewish
synagogue in Antioch. It was a
message of forgiveness of sin and
salvation through Christ (and the
eternal .results, everlasting life).
But it was categorically turned
down by his Jewish audience in
an atmosphere of hostility. Paul
and Barnabas, without hesitation,
plainly and clearly responded with
these sobering words, "It was
necessary that the word of God
should first have been spoken to


you; but seeing ye put it from you,
and judge yourselves unworthy of
everlasting life, lo, we turn to the
Gentiles" (Acts 13:46). In essence,
and in fact, this was what they
were doing, judging themselves
unworthy of everlasting life. And
this was followed by persecutions
against Paul and Barnabas. Really,
nothing could be any more for our
benefit and in our favor than this
message of love, hope and salva-
tion. To oppose it actually is to op-
pose ourselves and all 'of the con-
sequent eternal good that would
come in our behalf. And to think
that persecution would come as a
result of telling people such good
news! What a contradiction ard a
mixed up situation!
Later in dealing with false
teachers, Paul admonishes his
fellow-worker, Titus, "A man that
is a heretick (a divisive, factious
person) after the first and second
admonition reject; Knowing that


he that is subverted (perverted),
and sinneth, being condemned of
himself" (Titus 3:10-11). Yes, by
his actions he actually condemns
himself.
Normally, people do not hate
themselves and then intentionally
respond and make decisions that
are destructive to their own per-
sonal well-being, but from these
Scriptures (and our own observa-
tions and experiences) we have
seen this taking place. What they
do is not thought of in these terms,
but the end result is nonetheless
the same. The Scriptures simply
tell it like it is. Sometimes we are
our own worst enemy!

When weakness becomes strength; seeing what God sees


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
St. Martin's Church; Clewiston
When I skipped a grade in el-
ementary school, sports was an
area where I didn't do as well as
I did in other
areas. I am also
left-handed; it
was always a
problem to find "
a baseball glove
or set of golf.
clubs tailored to
my preference.
When it came Samuel S.
to choosing up Thomas
teams, I usually
was among the last chosen.
There was a teacher in el-
ementary school who served as
coach one year and she asked the
captain of the baseball team why I
wasn't chosen. "He can't bat!" she
was told and I will always renem.-
ber her response. "Of course he
can't bat," she replied, "you never
give him a chance." At tlat point,
I was "chosen" and found out
something else. It seemed that tie
pitchers were used to looking at


right-handed batters and I looked
different to them. This left them
off-guard. After stepping up to the
plate, I swung at the first ball to
cross, hitting a double and bring-
ing, a teammate home. My limita-
tion turned out to be a strength;
I found that my batting "back-
wards" gave me an edge. It took
someone with a larger view of the
situation to see that I got an op-
portunity; her faith in the smaller,
more awkward, left-handed kid
led to an opportunity not to disap-
point her.
Later we would get our daugh-
ter a two-wheel bicycle with
training wheels. Little by little the
wheels would be raised until one
day they were no longer needed as
she gained confidence and found
out for herself what we already
knew. It was having faith, really
knowing of her ability to learn to
ride the bike that was called out of
her; a little faith, a little guidance,
and she could do it on her own.
I can imagine Moses saying
"O Lord, I am not eloquent ... but
am slow of speech and tongue
(Exodus 4:10) when God called
him to lead the people of Israel


and confront Pharaoh. We learn
that God told him He would put
words in the mouth of his more
eloquent brother Aaron, but most
of all God tells Moses "... I will be
with your mouth and his mouth
and v(ill teach you what you shall
do (v.13)" It is Moses who led and
who mediated between God and
His people and who delivered the
people from slavery to the prom-
ised land.
God calls and the fear of not
being able is vanished. Isaiah who
fears he cannot speak and be a
prophet calls out, "Woe is me, for
I am lost: for I am a man of un-
cleaned lips (Isaiah 6:5)" and then
his mouth is touched and Isaiah is
told his guilt is taken away and his
sin is forgiven. Then Isaiah heard
the Lord ask "Whom shall I send
and who will go for us? (v.8)"and
Isaiah answers "Here am I! Send
me!"
There is a Bible full and world
full of people that have accom-
plished the impossible because
someone had faith in them;
sometimes it was God Himself
and sometimes one of His angels.
God sees us in all of our fullness;


weaknesses and strengths, assets
and liabilities. He calls us to see in
others what He sees; often when
they don't see it themselves. He
has a way of turning weaknesses
into strengths, giving courage to
the fearful, calling out of us our
very best when others are sure
we can't do it.
I never really went anywhere
with baseball, but every once in
awhile I'd get up to bat and see a
pitcher with a look that said "easy
out" and wait my turn. It would
come.
Every once in awhile someone
would come to me and I'd see
something that would make me
say "Why don't you..." and hear
"I can't."
"Oh yeah?" I'd say, "There's
nothing that you and God can't
do together."
I believe that because I've
lived it. And do you know what?
I've seen it happen; thanks be to
God-it happens when you give it a
chance to happen.
God is there; He comes or
sends an angel every once in
awhile and "I can't" becomes
"Wow!"


When the sheep



comes home


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Reading the Bible is some-
times like going to the movies,
in the sense that we encounter
stories that don't quite ring true:
A man leaving 99 sheep to look
for a lost one or a woman throw-
ing a party to celebrate the find-
ing of a lost coin? Does anyone
actually do
that? Can you
imagine getting
an invitation
to a "lost coin
found" party?
It seems
unreal -- like
in the mov-
ies when one John
person starts Hicks
dancing in the
street and then suddenly every-
one else starts to dance along
with him. And they know all the
steps! Yeah, right!
But maybe stories from Scrip-
ture point to a deeper truth, one
that is even more real than the
.day-to-day existence we experi-
ence. Perhaps the stories of the
gospel are God's truth, not hu-
man truth. It is the Lord God
who feels joy because He has
found a missing sheep and He
invites us to lay aside our skepti-
cism and rejoice along with Him
when He carries that lost sheep
home.
"I tell you, Jesus states, there
will be more joy in heaven over
one sinner who repents than
over ninety-nine righteous peo-
ple who do not need to repent."
More joy over the tax collector
who repents than over 99 Phari-
sees, more delight over the pros-
titute who repents than over 99
scribes; more rejoicing over the
drug dealer who repents than
over 99 clean and sober Chris-
tians, more happiness over the
career criminal who repents than
over 99 law-abiding Americans.


It would be easy to think that
this kind of stuff happens only in
the Scriptures; but the truth is it
also happens all around us in the
kingdom of God. When the lost
are found, God throws a party
.and wants us all to join the cel-
ebration. There's nothing unre-
alistic about it. The challenge for
us is to join God in feeling mercy
toward those who are lost.
Several years ago, I was
working in a playground when
my wedding ring slipped off
of my finger. I could not find it
anywhere. In desperation, I took
off my shoes to mark the area
where the ring came off of my
finger and hurriedly sought help.
With hope fading, I was crawl-
ing around on my hands and
knees. I was about to go rent a
metal detector when one of my
friends found it. And I can assure
you, there was great rejoicing!
Understand, things go lost
in my house on a regular basis
and we don't drop everything to
search until we find them, un-
less it is my car keys, or the last
pair of my three pairs of glasses,
but I digress! I call in the search
party only when something ex-
tremely.valuable is lost. Other-
wise, I don't bother wasting the
time and just hope that it turns
up on its own.
Everything depends on how
much value we place on the lost.
Of course, Jesus' parables of the
lost sheep and the lost coin are
about the lost sinner who re-
pents and thus is found. If we see
people who don't know Christ
as individuals dearly loved by
God, then they should become
extremely valuable. It might
behoove us to call in assistance
and work tirelessly until they are
found -- and then whoop it up
when they repent and return to
the community of faith.
