Transportation plan reviewed


Rural counties seek
federal aid usually
taken by urban areas

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN On Sept.
11, the Glades County Board of
County Commissioners listened
to a transportation plan that
Florida Heartland Economic De-
velopment Initiative (FHREDI) is
taking quite seriously.


The plan was presented by
attorney Fred Busack, who ex-
plained that for a long time, ur-
ban areas have taken advantage
of federal and state money given
to them for their Metropolitan
Planning Organization (MPO).
This is a transportation plan
for areas with a population of
50,000 or more and it is designed
to fund their short and long term
travel needs.
Some of these urban areas
do not have a population large
enough to qualify for an MPO so

they quietly borrow a portion of
a neighboring population to add
to their mapping boundaries.
They do this even if it is part of
another county. It happened to
a section of DeSoto County, only
DeSoto does not gain any funds
nor do they have a seat on the
MPO planning table.
The six south central counties
in FHREDI are DeSoto, Glades,
Hendry, Hardee, Okeechobee,
and Highlands. According to
Fred Busack, presentation attor-
ney, these heartland counties are

Haven in Glades County.


St. Joseph's food pantry serves


More than 100
families receive
groceries weekly

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN On Sept.,
13, a truck from the Harry
Chapin Food Bank pulled onto
the grounds of St. Joseph the
Worker's Catholic Church in
Moore Haven. Father Esteban
Soy, pastor, and four volun-
teers greeted the truck driver,
also a volunteer from the Fort
Myers area. They unloaded fro-
zen and non-perishable foods
and stored them in the large
pantry and freezer that the
church built and installed for
their food program.
Father Soy explained that
Catholic Churches realized
there was a need to feed many
families after several hurri-
canes battered South Florida.
Generous donations came in
to the area from concerned lo-
cal and out of state citizens, but
many times the food would be
past its expiration date. The an-
swer to collecting, trucking and
distributing safe foods came in

the form of the Harry Chapin
Food Bank which has a branch
in southwest Florida.
"We have successfully tried
our best to have it every week.
Last Tuesday we had over 130
families who came by for a
box of groceries," said Esteban
Soy, smiling.
The pastor mentioned that
many jobs in the area are sea-
sonal, temporary, part time or
so low paying that some fami-
lies need a little help to get by.


Sometimes individuals come
by. They are usually elderly,
disabled or displaced. Anyone
can apply to receive food, as
long as they are residents of
Glades County.
In the past year, St. Joseph's
food program has cost $21,000
to operate. The food is not
from the government. It is
solely from charitable organi-
zations and money is needed

out in the cold when it comes
to transportation dollars. The
only money or voice on Glades
County's behalf comes from the
Florida Department of Transpor-
tation and it is solely based on
their schedules and their priori-
ties.
Since the Sebring and Avon
Park areas of the heartland are
one of its largest population
hubs, it might be practical for
all the central counties to join
together to create a geographic
area that qualifies for a popula-


tion of 50,000 or more. This is
the figure required to create an
MPO. Once the heartland coun-
ties form an alliance and qualify
for federal transportation funds,
they will be able to produce a
20 year long-range plan and a
five year transportation improve-
ment plan.
"Because we would have a re-
gional planning entity, we would
be able to have a voice in federal
project priority and location and
compete for federal project dol-

Medical fees



rise for dept.


County works out
agreement with
Last hance Mine

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The
Glades County Board of County
Commissioners had several is-
sues on the agenda for Sept. 11.
Topics covered a sand mining
agreement, the cost of medical
service, technical assistance
service and a waiver for active
volunteer fire fighters.
The commissioners consid-
ered a resolution to set higher
fees for medical services at the
Glades County Health Depart-
ment. The recommendation
was presented by Ms. S. Lynn
Thomas, health department
business manager. This per-
tains to an increase in certain


primary care service fees, and
is permissable under Florida
Statute 154.06.
Even though some medical
service fees have increased,
the health department still uses
a slidirig-fee based on income.
Increased fees are posted in the
health department lobby, and
will take effect on October 1.
"A copy of'the fee schedule
can be picked up at the depart-
ment," mentioned Ms. Thom-
as, in a follow up phone call.
For 15 years the Medicaid fee
schedule has remained fixed,
and local public health needs
an increase to compensate for
the state's four percent general -
reduction in revenue.
The resolution was ap-
proved.
The county also approved
projects for the Small County
Technical Assistance Services

Annual Florida



migratory



bird count


By Nancy Dale
Glades County Democrat
Recently, on Sept. 15, "citi-
zen scientists" had the oppor-
tunity to hike, trek, and canoe
across the backwoods of Hen-
dry, Glades, Okeechobee and
Highlands County to see for
themselves the health of the
migrating bird population.
Teams of biologists and vol-
unteers were assigned to moni-
tor, record and date over a 12
hour period from dawn to dusk
then correlate their data at the
end of the day.


Under the auspices of the
Florida Ornithological and Na-
tional Audubon Society, Paul
Gray, Okeechobee scientist for
the Audubon Society, led a tour
from Harney Pond.
Volunteers who accom-
panied the scientists saw the
spectacular natural areas
watching many communities
and species of birds that have
travel thousands of miles take
a rest stop or nest around Lake
Okeechobee.

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The
Glades County community
traffic safety team met Sept. 6
at the public library to discuss
two upcoming events and to
address traffic safety problem
areas.
Eleven members repre-
sented local government, local
agencies, communities and the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation.
Angelica Pena, Hendry/
Glades Health Department,
was chosen as new chairman,
and Captain Jeff Hill will share


vice chairman duties with Ser-
geant Kim Hill.
Captain Jeff Hill, GCSO road
patrol, reported that 434 traffic
citations were issued during
the month of August.
Twenty citations were is-
sued for child safety restraint
violations. The remainder were
for speeding, DUI, and adult
seat belt violations. Captain Hill
mentioned that Florida laws,
rules and safety tips for ATV's
(all terrain vehicles) are a cur-
rent road patrol issue.
"This is something we are
targeting right now," said Cap-
tain Jeff Hill, referring to ATV
safety.
The Glades County road de-
partment reports that construc-
tion will soon begin in Muse on


Loblolly Bay Road. The project
will install new drainage cul-
verts, and blacktopping. Sign
markers, detours and flagmen
will be used. School traffic will
be taken into consideration.
The traffic safety team has
planned a Safety/Health Fair
for the Muse area on Saturday,
Sept. 29. Muse residents and
school children are invited to
meet with school district staff,
local law enforcement and the
health department.
Topics will include safely
walking to and from the school
bus stops, using car seats and
seat belts for children, and
screenings for health condi-
tions.

Even though it's been a year, your smile still shines through our tears.
We find a picture, we see your smile; we often sit and think about you
awhile. We'll remember your laughter, until long after, and even
though we are apart, you're always in our heart. We will see you again,
but until then, for all the good times we have shared, and all the
memories we still have, we will ride those roads, and walk your
steps...keeping your memory alive.

Health network may benefit consumers


TALLAHASSEE Florida De-
partment of Health (DOH) and
Smart Growth Network officials
announced DOH as the first pub-
lic health partner in the Smart
Growth Network. The Network,
formed in 1996, is a response to
increasing community interest in
developing communities able to
boost the economy, protect the
environment and improve com-
munity life. The Network is sup-
ported by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (USEPA) and
partners include a variety of pub-
lic and private agencies.
"Communities must be de-
signed to encourage walking,
biking, social interaction, prevent
traffic injuries, and offer health-
ful services in near proximity,"
State Surgeon General Ana M.
Viamonte Ros, M.D., M.P.H. said.
"In Florida this issue hits close to
home because of our growing
population over the age of 65,
estimated to double by the year
2020. We have to plan ahead,,use
resources wisely, and have alter-
natives available."
Motor vehicle traffic in Florida
has continued to rise, while the
number of trips people take on
foot has dropped by 42 percent in
the last 20 years, with 54 percent
of all trips under a half mile being


made in vehicles. The Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
recently reported 60 percent of
Florida adults are overweight or
obese, 26 percent of Florida high-
school students are overweight or
at risk of becoming overweight,
and 28 percent of low-income
children between 2 and 5 years of
age in Florida are overweight or
at risk of becoming overweight.
The Florida Department of
Health is encouraging Floridians
to support land use decisions that
improve the public health.
The Smart Growth Network
supports 10 principles as follows:
Create a range of housing
opportunities and choices Pro-
viding quality housing for people
of all income levels is vital to sup-
porting communities.
S* Create walkable neighbor-
hoods. Walkable communities
are desirable places to live, work,
learn, worship, play, exercise,
and know one's neighbors.
Encourage community and
stakeholder collaboration Growth
can create great places to live,
work and play -- if it responds to
a community's own needs and
sense of how and where it wants
to grow.
Foster distinctive, attractive
communities with a'strong sense
of place Smart growth encour-


ages communities to create its
own identity and set standards
which respond to community
values of architectural beauty and
distinctiveness.
Make development decisions
predictable, fair and cost effective
- For a community to be success-
ful and sustainable in supporting
smart growth, decisions must be
embraced and understandable to
both private and public sectors.
Mix land uses Smart growth
supports the combination of
mixed land uses in communities
as a critical piece in achieving bet-
ter places to live, living and aging
in place, and improved choices in
close proximity.
Preserve open space, farm-
land, natural beauty and critical
environmental areas Preserva-
tion strengthens the local econ-
omy, gives residents choices in
natural amenities, and secures
quality of life for future popula-
tions.
Provide a variety of transpor-
tation choices Providing people
with more choices in transpor-
tation is a key factor in smart
growth and public health.
Strengthen and direct devel-
opment towards existing commu-
nities Smart growth encourages
development in existing commu-


nities that already have public ser-
vices or systems in place, making
use of the resources that these
existing neighborhoods offer,
while conserving open space and
irreplaceable natural resources.
Take advantage of compact
building design Smart growth
provides a way for communities
to bring in more compact build-
ing design as an alternative to
conventional, land consumptive
development.
By supporting Smart Growth,
the Florida Department of Health
also supports the Governor's Cli-
mate Change initiative and direc-
tive on Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design (LEED) cer-
tification for state buildings. Bet-
ter design of buildings and com-
munities will reduce dependence
on automobiles and reduce the
use of energy and products that
increase pollution. Better design
also promotes more physical ac-
tivity opportunities and less time
traveling providing more com-
munity and family time."

so far this season, bllt i wasn't
t. 1 Wr11l, as tilhe ', .lid, D y Gators
earned a 24-1 victory last :'.i t.i
night.
For much of the tirst halt, it ap-
peared as if the Tigers were I .;nii .
to pull off a ti ii iinj Iillset -, .k Wli
strength of "hii th 11t di'' and run-
ning game.
Amid the sloppy field condi-
tions at Glades Day, the Tigers got
off to a great start on their open-
ing drive with an impressive 68-
yard run by senior fullback Willie
Armstrong to the Gators' 2-yard
line.
Just two plays later, Tigers se-
nior Colin Ricketts ran to the end
zone for a 1-yard rushing touch-
down with 3:19 left in the first
quarter.
The Tigers' fans were elated
after the score Clewiston was
up 7-0 and it was their first touch-
down of the season.
The Gators weren't going to al-
low that to happen, as Glades Day
junior quarterback Bo Schlecter --
who was 9-for-16 with 160 yards
passing -- led his team on a sev-
en-play, 74-yard drive that culmi-
nated with a 12-yard touchdown
pass to senior wide receiver An-
thony Norton. Norton would have
a great game, with six catches for
131 yards.
With 10:24 left in the second
quarter and Clewiston up 7-6 at
that point, the Tigers were able to
preserve their lead with a missed
extra point attempt by Schlecter,
the Gators' kicker.
But with 2:51 left in the sec-
ond quarter, Tigers senior Zack
Waddell, while trying to return
a Glades Day punt to get Clewis-
ton in good field position, found
himself unable to hold on to the
ball and Gators sophomore Clint
Johnson recovered the fumble at
the Clewiston 5-yard line.
With Glades Day able to get
the ball back after the Tigers mis-
cue, the Gators were unable to
score a touchdown on the drive
as Clewiston's defense held the
Gators offense with a big red-
zone stop on three big defensive
plays, including a Schelecter pass
that was intended for Norton but
broken up by Tigers junior Darris
Hughes on first and goal.
Glades Day had to settle for a
field goal at the end of the drive.
With 45 seconds left in the sec-
ond quarter, Clewiston saw them-
selves trailing by a score of 9-7.
WVhile th :Tigers defense did
a nice job containing Glades Day
running backs Ernest Jackscrn and
Cods Davis for much of the first
hall, at some point Ihe Cle\\iston
passing game had to open up at
some point in the game.
It never happened.
:.Tigers junior quarterback Isan-
dro Maiquez promptly threw an
interception to Davis after Clewis-
ton got the ball back with 39 sec-
onds left in the first half. But the
Tigers defense prevented further
damage by keeping the Gators
from scoring again in the half.
Down by only two points to
begin the second half, the Tigers
knew they would have to pre-
vent themselves from committing
turnovers and making fundamen-
tal mistakes if they wanted to stay
in the game and come away with
their first victory.
.But with only two minutes into
the third quarter on a third and
one play at the Tigers own 39 yard
line Marquez wound up losing
a fumble that would be recovered
by Glades Day senior Travis Au-
waerter.
On the ensuing possession,
Glades Day would make Clewis-
ton pay dearly for that lost fum-
ble, as the Gators would need less
than two minutes and only four

Glades Day Gators senior running back Ernest Jackson -- wearing the #5 jersey -- gets away
from a Clewiston Tigers defender as he makes some positive yardage on this play. Jackson,
who finished with 64 total yards, would be taken to the hospital after the game for precaution-
ary reasons.

plays to score their second touch-
down of the night on a 9-yard
touchdown run by Davis.
With 8:17 left in the third quar-
ter, the Tigers saw themselves
staring at a 16-7 deficit.
The next Clewiston drive
looked promising as Marquez be-
gan the onslaught with a 20-yard
pass to Armstrong, followed by
a few nice runs by Hughes and
Armstrong. But on fourth down
at the Gators' 33-yard, Marquez's
pass to Waddell fell incomplete,
ending that possession with 4:36
left in the third quarter.
Clewiston should have capital-
ized on that drive because on the
Gators next possession, it seemed
as if they were,on a mission to put.
the game out of reach.
The Tigers' defense tried to
contain the Gator offense on the
drive, with Davis fumbling the ball
on a third down play. But Davis
recovered his own fumble that re-
sulted in a 15-yard gain for a first
down at the Clewiston 48 yard
line.
After that point, the Tigers
couldn't keep up with the Gators
offense as Auwaerter finished the
drive on a 3-yard rushing touch-
down with 48 seconds left in the
quarter. Glades Day was up, 22-7,
at that point.
Early in the fourth quarter, after
a Tigers blocked punt by Gators se-
nior William Orr, the defense was
backed into a corner with Glades
Day needing only four yards to
extend their lead. But the Tigers
defense forced Schlecter into
committing a fumble as he tried
to make a play from the Clewiston
4-yard line on first down.
The Tigers recovered the
fumble, creating an opportunity
yet again for the offense to score
again.
But only two plays later, Mar-
quez coughed up yet another
fumble that would be recovered
by Gators junior lineman Cody
Dionne.
The Gators were in great posi-
tion yet again to extend their lead
as they began their drive from the
Tigers' 10-yard line. But after Ga-
tors junior running back Vinny


Jones gained nine yards on two
rushing plays the Gators were at
the Tigers' 1-yard line after those
runs he would not see the end
zone as the Tigers rush defense
stuffed him for a loss of one yard
on third down and no gain on
fourth down.
The goal line stand would pro-
vide another opportunity for the
Clewiston offense. But it proved
to be for naught, as the Gators
defense rose to the occasion, pin-
ning Hughes at the Tigers end
zone to get a safety with 6:19 left
in the game.
Orr made that pivotal tackle on
Hughes from the Clewiston 1-yard
'line to put the Gators up, 24-7.'
But the game was not over for
Clewiston, as the offense would
see the ball again later in the
fourth.
After a Gators punt, with 3:27
left in the game, Marquez was
picked off by Gators junior Jar-
rett Swaby. But the Tigers defense
picked up the slack yet again after
Glades Day fumbles on first down
at the Clewiston 37 yard line
Ricketts picked up the fumble
and ran 63 yards for a defensive
touchdown to cut the Gators lead
to 10 with 3:12 left.
But in the end, it was too little,
too late for the Tigers. Clewiston
would not score again and the Ga-
tors would prove victorious in this
contest-.
"Our defense held up after
Clewiston's big play on their first
drive and our offense started click-
ing after that," Glades Day Head
Coach Pete Walker said. "At times,
we were sloppy in the game, but
in the second half, we scored
enough points to get the victory."
Clewiston Tigers Head Coach
Larry Antonacci was pleased with
the team's intensity throughout
the game but said that inexperi-
ence and turnovers contributed to
the loss.
"We had a lot of turnovers
and made some fundamental
mistakes in the game," the head
coach said. "The defense was on
the field most of the time. But the
kids did not give up. They were
more emotional and intense this

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.
TURN THEM IN: The people that dump anything in our canals
don't care that you are complaining in the newspaper. Do your part
and file a complaint with the Florida Agriculture dept. You will need
the address of the violation, type of material being dumped/put in the
canal (anything is a violation of state law).

MANDATORY GARBAGE PICKUP: For the record, I am against
mandatory anything. I choose to pay for my trash to be picked up and
I do not want the county telling me what I know I need to take care
of for myself. Some areas of the county may benefit from mandatory
pick-up, but there are other areas that it will be just another tax burden.
I happen to live on a main road near a bridge over a little creek and
every yahoo that goes to the Golden Arches or Taco Bell or Wendy's
seems to think that they can get a prize by trying to throw their trash
into the creek. Most of the time, it is a toss up between the fast foods
and the beer bottles. Sometimes it makes it, sometimes it don't. My
wife goes out everyday and picks up after them. I do not know how
you house break these pigs but mandatory trash pick up will not solve
the problem. I would suggest placing dumpsters in key locations. Yes
there will be people that abuse it, but it would be better to have them
abuse it in a controlled/confined location that in some secluded area
where it will take a lot more time and extra cost to clean up. For the
parts of the county that would benefit from mandatory trash pick-up
- that is fine. But the people that do not want to be taxed for trash pick-
up should not have to pay for those that do. If the person that lives
in the middle of 10 or 20 acres gets the same service as the person
that has 10 neighbors on the same block and the costs were equally
shared mandatory trash pick-up could be a little more palatable. My
taxes have gone up quite dramatically since I have moved here about
seven years ago now and I have not seen any benefits from higher
taxes. I do not need any more taxes and if the county can not survive
on the amount of money they get then tough. Do without like I do.
I don't have the money for everything I would like to have either. I
moved to Glades County with my eyes open. I knew the services did
not compare to Lee County going in. For anyone that wants all the
services let them move to Lee County. Then they can have everything
that goes along with it.

Cracker cooking part of Florida's history


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
Early settlers in Florida fre-
quently found themselves
"making do" with items at
hand, since the nearest store
was often a considerable dis-
tance.
In addition, the lack of roads
or other dependable means
of transportation meant that
goods purchased in the near-
est village had to be compact
enough to be hauled on the
backs of pack animals or on
small wagons or even boats.
Despite the inconveniences
suffered by early settlers, they
made dedicated effort to main-
tain the niceties of civilization
that included "setting a fine
table."
Often Florida cooks found it
necessary to create new reci-
pes using whatever was avail-
able which, under the skilled
direction of a good cook, made
the unpalatable eatable and
the mundane exotic.
So wrote Carolyn Teicher
Potts in the Introduction to
"Cracker Cooking."
Long before the movie pop-
ularized this Southern delicacy,
Cracker cooks could draw a
crowd anytime with their fried


green tomatoes, especially
when they were accompanied
by fried chicken and a "mess
of speckled butterbeans," or
black-eyed peas which are a
good substitute.
The origins of this uniquely
Southern dish are obscured
by time, but one Florida cow
hunter insists the idea came
about when a lonely cow
hunter inadvertently dropped
the only tomato he had in his
saddlebags into a pan of siz-
zling bacon. Once he had done
so, the story goes, he thought "I
might as well add seasoning."
The result was a spectacular
taste treat!
Of course, there are those in
Alabama and Mississippi who
claim the dish originated there,
while the Cajuns in Louisiana
insist that because it is so tasty,
it had to be a creation of Cajun
or Creole kitchens. However,
we're much more willing to ac-
cept the cow hunter's claim.
Included in "Cracker Cook-
ing" is this all-time Southern fa-
vorite: Green Fried Tomatoes,
page 14. And there are those
who say, "Oh anyone who
cooks can make green fried
tomatoes. Not so! not the way
they should be made to assure
the best flavor and that they


don't end up being mushy. So
try this method from the Crack-
er cookbook and taste the dif-
ference.

Fried green tomatoes
Green tomatoes, slightly pinky
but preferably whitish. If they're
too pinky they'll likely end up
mushy
/2 teaspoon salt
tablespoon shortening, prefer-
ably bacon drippings
cup flour
'/2 teaspoon black pepper
teaspoons blended herbs'
Slice tomatoes into /2 inch
slices. Place slices in a mixture
of flour and spices, making sure
slices are covered on both sides.
Melt shortening/bacon drippings
in a cast iron "spider" on medium
heat. Place tomato slices in pan
and fry until a golden brown on
each side. Remove from pan and
place on cookie rack to drain.
And the 50th recipe (on page
60) just may cap the stack!

Bacon and
Shrimp Delight
1 dozen medium shrimp,
peeled, deveined, and washed
thoroughly
12 slices smoked bacon /2
tablespoon brown sugar


/4 cup dry sherry 2 table-
spoons soy sauce
Mix sherry, soy sauce and
brown sugar. Place shrimp in
sauce and marinate for 20 min-
utes. Remove shrimp and wrap
individually in bacon strips. Use
toothpicks to pin together. Heat
shortening to 350 degrees and
deep fry until bacon is crisp.
Remove toothpicks and drain.
Serve with rice or as a pre-
dinner appetizer.
Guaranteed not just good
but great!
"Cracker Cooking" is an 8 /a2

to-read black type. The book is

Nick Wynne, who just happens
to be the president of the Flori-
da Historical Society.

pes!

Local doc named one of America's Top Physicians


The Consumers' Research
Council of America has an-
nounced that Dr. Luther W. Oe-
hlbeck of Muse is named on of
America's Top Physicians, 2007.
This, he says, came as a total sur-
prise.
After service in the Pacific the-
atre of World War II, he had to de-
cide what to do with his life.
"I'd thought a lot about medi-
cine, and photography and to
some extent law," he said. "My fa-
ther gave me a camera when I was
nine years old and took me with
him to Florida. He was a gifted
photographer in black and white
and was often compared to Ansel
Adams. I had done some photog-
raphy of my own in the Navy. In
other words, it was not an official
assignment from the Navy. Then,
when I got home I met up with a
fine full-time photographer in my
home town. However, right away
I learned that he was just eking
out a living with what he was do-


ing which caused problems in his
family and so right then and there
I quit thinking about photography
as a career. However, my interest
in photography has never dimin-
ished."
And so the question arose:'
how did you decide on pathol-
ogy?
"Well, my father was also a
doctor, a radiologist. I'd been in
a medical family all my life; there-
fore, the subject was not foreign
to me. I had always been fascinat-
ed by challenge; doing things on
my own and the more I thought
about pathology, the more chal-
lenging it became to me.
"Yet I enrolled in the University
of Miami with the goal of becom-
ing a teacher, but soon learned
that the classes were so mundane
and held so little challenge that af-
ter the first year I couldn't get to
the University of North Carolina
(UNC) fast enough. I'd always
admired how the university was


run and some of those who were
graduates. Thus in due time, hav-
ing earned an A.B. in Zoology I
entered the UNC Medical School
at Chapel Hill for my first two
years of medical study, then trans-
ferred to the University of Virginia
Medical School in 1953 where I
graduated."
Dr. Oehlbeck went on to say
that he interned at North Caro-
lina Memorial Hospital in 1954, a
resident in pathology in 1955 and
a resident in pathology at Moses
H. Cone Hospital in Greensboro,
North Carolina, 1956-1957, under
the late Herbert Z. Lund, former
surgical pathologist of Cleveland
Clinic.
Dr. Oehlbeck is a past presi-
dent of Caldwell Memorial Hos-
pital Medical Staff, the Caldwell
County Medical Society and the
North Carolina Society of Patholo-
gists. He was also a member of
the joint commission of North
Carolina Blue Cross-Blue Shield,


and is a board member emeritus
of the College of American Pa-
thologists.
He was instrumental in intro-
ducing the then-new technique of
the Pap smear throughout North
Carolina.
Dr. Oehlbeck had a combined
hospital and private pathol-
ogy practice, The Laboratory of
Anatomic and Clinical Pathol-
ogy, which is still in operation in

Florida's charity celebrates 50 years


The Florida Sheriffs Youth
Ranches is on the verge of mak-
ing history. This year, Florida's
charity is celebrating 50 years of
dedicated service to children and
families throughout the state.
While recognizing 50 years of
achievement, the Youth Ranches
will reach another amazing mile-
stone. By the end of the year, the
organization will have served over
100,000 children since it began in
1957, when two sheriffs founded


the first "Boys Ranch" located
along the Suwannee River in Live
Oak. Today, the Youth Ranches
consists of four residential facili-
ties and two camps, serving all 67
counties in Florida.
The main purpose of the
Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches is
to provide a positive and healthy
living environment for at-risk boys
and girls. Children come to the
Youth Ranches from a variety of
backgrounds. Some have been


neglected or abused; others might
struggle socially and academi-
cally. Regardless of their past, the
Youth Ranches provides hope for
their future. Unlike correctional
institutions (such as boot camps),
this organization serves a differ-
ent type of kid in a different way.
The Youth Ranches reaches out
to "good" kids who come from
"bad" situations, like Josh.
For 50 years the Florida Sheriffs
Youth Ranches has helped thou-


sands of kids just like Josh. Since
1957, generous sheriffs, donors,
and citizens have come together
to offer hope and a chance for suc-
cess. This year, the Youth Ranches
will celebrate its 50 Year Anniver-
sary through a broad range of
events all across the state, includ-
ing the signature Annual Boys
Ranch Open House in Live Oak,
Saturday, Oct. 6. For more infor-
mation call 1-800-765-3797 or visit

e t


Area counties discuss lake issues


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
OKEECHOBEE Problems
encountered due to low lake
levels were among the topics of
discussion at the Sept. 14 meet-
ing of County Coalition for Re-
sponsible Management of Lake
Okeechobee, St. Lucie and Ca-
loosahatchee Estuaries and Lake
Worth Lagoon.
The group brings together
representative commissioners
of Okeechobee, Hendry, Glades,
Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie,
Highlands, Osceola and Polk
Counties. They gathered at 10
a.m. at the Okeechobee Civic
Center to discuss the impacts
of low water levels on Glades
County's sport fishing industry,
the Northern Everglades Initiative,
Lake Okeechobee Regulation
Schedule, the Herbert Hoover
.Dike Rehabilitation, water condi-
tions both in the watershed and
in the lake.
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) had re-
quested the Coalition's support of
their request to the Florida legis-
lature for accelerated funding for
the CERP projects.
The low water levels in Lake
Okeechobee have made ac-
cess for fishermen from Glades
County to the lake almost impos-
sible. Over time, the old canals in
Glades County have carried silt
down toward the lake, reducing
their depth so boats cannot go
to the lake. In Buckhead Ridge,
the 2.5 mile long Pearce Canal,
built in the 1950s, needs dredging
before it can be used at all," said
Glades County Commissioner and
coalition member, Russell Echols.
"Add the silting from Hurricane
Wilma, plus the lower lake levels
-- what can be done? It is a prob-
lem when the lake gets down to
about 14 feet; add the silting from
Hurricane Wilma and you can't


use them at all."
During the public comment
period, Maureen Brady, a Buck-
head Ridge resident, said that
she had documents that stated
that the legal responsibility for
the Pearce Canal was given to the
Central and Southern Flood Con-
trol District in the 1960s. SFWMD,
as their successor, should be re-
sponsible.
Some of these canals were
dug so long ago that in many
cases, no one knows who would,
or should, be responsible for their
maintenance.
The Northern Everglades Ini-
tiative has been organized to
comply with the state legislature's
mandate for a plan by February
1, 2008. Tom Teets of SFWMD's
Land Resource Dept. reported
the progress on the area's ecol-
ogy, salinity of the estuaries, wa-
ter supply, condition of the dike
and phosphorous reduction. Five
watersheds have been defined as
contributing to the lake and each
can be analyzed separately.
Phosphorus reduction levels
can now be monitored by area.
A proposed plan will provide
256,000 Acre-feet of storage for
water north of the lake. The Kis-
simmee River restoration will
hold back water to replenish
groundwater north of the lake.
"This is just a start, I hope," said
Paul Gray of the Audubon Society.
With more time, water managers
will be able to tell us what it will
take to get the water manage-
ment system under a reasonable
level of control."
Kim Taplin, representative
of the Army Corps of Engineers
(COE) said public comments
on the revised Lake Regulation
Schedule are being evaluated be-
fore release of a final Schedule in
early November.
Commissioner Ray Judah of
Lee County complained that the
changes in the lake schedule will


affect the Caloosahatchee and
St. Lucie Estuaries. Ms. Taplin
replied that the issues of public
safety concerned with the condi-
tion of the dike made the changes
necessary. Although media have
reported that the dike has only
38 percent of the strength of its
original design against the action
of wind-driven waves, that num-
ber will be revised with additional
information the COE has provid-
ed to SFWMD. The criteria were
changed after Hurricane Katrina.
Major Dominic Ciaramintaro
of the COE reported that the
revised plan for the dike reha-
bilitation, constrained by nearby
homes, will include "relief wells,"
(used up and down the Mississip-
pi River) to carry excess leakage
down into the soil where it will do
no harm, the toe ditch filled and a
much deeper cut-off wall will be
constructed.
Three contractors will be
working, including two European
contractors, experienced in this
construction in other parts of the
world. These methods have been
used and proven in other coun-
tries.
This reach will be completed
in six years.
To complete the entire rehabil-
itation will take 17 years and cost
an estimated $856 million.
When it came to the resolution
to support SFWMD's request for
accelerated funding for the CERP
projects, Commissioner Judah
motioned to include construction
of a spillway at the south end of
the lake into the EAA included.
This as not approved by the Co-
alition. By an eight to two vote,
the Coalition voted to support the
resolution as written.
Cal Neidrauer, engineer with
SFWMD reported that we have
had 100 consecutive days of the
lowest minimum lake levels re-
corded. The National Climate Pre-
cipitation Outlook still shows that


rain in November may be heavier
than normal with the probability
of hurricanes. That outlook has
been revised Seven to nine hurri-
canes are still predicted and so far
there have been three. But over-
all the 2007-08 dry season will be
much drier that normal.
"How will the lake act?" Mr.
Neiderauer answered his own
question. "Depends on rainfall."
Water restrictions will continue
for the foreseeable future, he said
"If there is no significant rain-
fall," he said" then by the begin-
ning of the next wet season we
could see lake levels as low as
6.5.
The only good news of the
meeting came from Susan Gray,
SFWMD, who reported that
the lake water is exceptionally
clear and aquatic plants have in-
creased. Few algae blooms have
been noted.
In housekeeping and organi-
zation matters, the Coalition's 10,
members reviewed and approved
changes to their proposed by
laws, then elected new officers
for the coming year. Commis-
sioner Cliff Betts, Jr., Okeechobee
County was elected chairman,
Commissioner Joe Smith, St. Lu-
cie County, vice chairman. Each
member-county of the coalition
pays to support the coalition and
these funds have been handled
by Martin County. That will be
continued.

FFA raising money
for convention
The Moore Haven FFA chap-
ter is trying to raise money to
attend the 80th Annual National
Convention in Indianapolis, Ind.
Five outstanding members were
chosen to attend this weeklong
educational trip where they will
be listening to 'Rick Rigsby and
touring Purdue University. The
cost of this trip is very expensive
for and though FFA members are
holding their own fundraisers,
they still need help from out-
side sources. On Sept. 21, FFA
plans to hold a barbecue. They
are accepting donations for the
barbecue and for the trip. If you
would like to donate money to us
for the trip, you may drop it off
at the school. For more informa-
tion, contact Moore Haven High
School.

Steve Hammond will be teaching fourth grade this year at Moore Haven Elementary
School. He was raised in Ohio and received his degrees from Ohio State University and
Saginaw Valley State University. When he worked at a summer job one of his former teach-
ers worked at the same place, and convinced him he should become a teacher. Mr. Ham-
mond has taught in Ohio and Michigan with all elementary grade levels from Headstart to
sixth grade. This photo was taken in the fourth grade hallway which has been decorated
in the school's new ocean theme for 2007-2008.

lars," said Mr. Busack in a memo
to FHREDI officials on Sept. 6.
In order to move forward with
this project, all six counties will
submit a retainer of $10,000 that
will be held in a trust account,
making a total $60,000. Attornies,
lobbyists and other professionals
will be needed to implement this
plan in Tallahassee.


FHREDI board members in-
tend for this investment to be
rewarded with a seat at the trans-
portation table that will allow
counties like Glades to obtain
federal and state dollars for re-
gional road projects.
Glades County commission-
ers approved a motion to partici-
pate in planning a transportation
organization. Soon, Mr. Busack
will give the same presentation to
Highlands and Hendry Counties.

West Glades events get started


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
School days are back in full
swing at West Glades School and
so are the special events.
Currently, West Glades' Annu-
al Book Fair is going strong and
will continue until Sept. 19.
This is the special event to
which parents, kinfolks of stu-
dents and friends and neighbors
of all sorts are urged to stop by
the school and pick up a cata-
logue with complete listings, or
simply stop by the school, see for
yourself and do your own choos-
ing.
The books are all laid out on
display ready to be purchased.


These books run the gamut -- all
kinds, for young students, older
students, adults, fiction, non-
fiction, mysteries, biographies,
history, and a great variety of
Florida books as well as the Sun-
shine State Young Readers Award
books.
The selections include Harry
Potter books, Clementine and
Hannah Montana. And of course
there are cookbooks, holiday
and theme titles. The company
named Scholastic furnishes the
books which are all new and ap-
proved for this fund raiser. Mon-
ies from the Book Fair will be
used for special purchases for the
library and AR tests.
The new librarian, Sheryl Hy-


man says the theme this year is
"Book Fair
Blizzard."
"There's been a special weath-
er alert! A blizzard in the library
with penguins and polar bears,"
said Ms. Hyman. "Warm up to
some great books at West Glades
Book Fair Blizzard."
The Fair is open from now un-
til Sept. 19, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
In addition, you can stop in
during Open House on Sept. 18
from 5 to 7 p.m.
On Tuesday, Sept. 18, West
Glades will stage its first Open
House of the school year.
This is the event to which par-
ents are especially invited to meet
and talk with teachers of their


children and it's also the time
when the students will receive
their interim grades or progress
report.
It is not necessary to make an
appointment. Parents are wel-
come anytime between 5 and 7
p.m. on the 18' at which time a
spaghetti dinner will be served by
the Rotary Club of LaBelle.
For adults, the tickets are $5,
students under 12 are $3.50. The:
dinner will be served in the cafe-
torium and money made from the
Rotary Club dinner will be used
for extra curricular activities.
West Glades School opened in
2004 and now numbers 415 stu-
dents in classes from Kindergar-
ten through Eighth grade.

the cost of food, there is a cost
for loading and delivery by truck.
There is an electricity bill for stor-
ing frozen food in the church's
ten by ten walk in freezer and for
air conditioning the pantry.
The volunteers are very frugal
and keep a log of the freezer tem-
perature tb ensure it is working
properly and the food remains
completely frozen. They also fold
and return large food boxes that
come from the food bank. If the
boxes were not returned, the
church would be charged $3 for
- each one.

(SCTAS) program. Each year the
Florida Association of Counties
helps small counties that have
limited staff and financial re-
sources by offering management
technical assistance.
Three county priorities where
listed in the SCTAS application.
These are education and training
on land use regulations, alterna-
tive revenues, and growth man-
agement concerning the permit-
ting system.
An ambulance fee waiver for
active volunteer fire fighters and
their immediate families was ap-
proved in hopes that this benefit
would provide encouragement
for residents to become volun-
teers. The fee would be waived
except for any existing insurance,
and will become effective Oct. 1.
The board chose three of the
county's most pressing issues to


Long Boat Key Ladies Guild, and
the Epiphany of Venice Ladies
Guild.
Of course more must be done.
A friend or neighbor can drive an
elder or disabled person to the
pantry each Tuesday between 5
and 6 p.m., church representa-
tives said.
Younger volunteers can help
older volunteers lift heavy boxes
onto shelves and into the freezer.
Funding sources must continue
to be sought out in order for the
program to stay up and working.
If enough money comes in, the
pastor hopes the church can also
donate baby diapers to young
parents.
St. Joseph's the Worker's
Catholic Church opens its pantry
doors every Tuesday at 5 p.m.
The street address is 1800 N. U.S.

By Sonja Crawford
4-H/Livestock Agent
The Hendry County 4-H Pro-
gram held its Annual 4-H Awards
Fun Day at the Hendry County
Fairgrounds in Clewiston. Mem-
bers received award pins in the
different 4-H project areas from
cooking and arts and crafts to
steer, swine and dairy goats.
Moreover, Junior and Senior 4-H
members received trophies for
placing in the top three in the re-
cord book competition in several
project areas. Leaders and other
adult volunteers were recognized
for their many years of service
and dedication to the 4-H pro-
gram from one year to 30 years
of service. Mrs. Karen Tindall was
awarded the Outstanding Leader
Award after receiving letters of
recommendation from her 4-H
club members. Mrs. Tindall has
provided leadership to the Hen-
dry County 4-H Club Program for
two years as leader of the Barn-
yard Buddies 4-H Club.
4-H members also received
special recognition for their ac-
complishments in 4-H, Cassidy
Cohran received the Outstand-
ing Junior 4-H Award plaque
with Kelsie Hansen achieving the


Outstanding Intermediate 4-H
Award plaque. Cyrus Mahan was
awarded the Outstanding Senior
4-H Award plaque. These awards
were based on letters received
from 4-H leaders outlining their
accomplishments in the overall
4-H program. Jessica Backes and
Jamar Boykin were the recipients
of the Pro Steadman Scholarship
in the amount of $1,000 each.
The Hendry County 4-H Office
would like to express their ap-
preciation to the Hendry County
Fair Association for the use of the
fairgrounds as well as the parents,
leaders, volunteers and commu-
nity leaders who attended the Fun
Day in support of the 4-H pro-
gram. Without all of you, giving
your time and talents, we would
not be able to reach the lives of
many youth in Hendry County.
We wish our graduating Seniors:
Kandace Adkins, Jessica Backis,
Jamar Boykin, Wes Crockett, Kim
Fielder, Nathan Harris, Haley Jen-
kins, Matthew McCulley, Josh Ow-
ens, Heather Raulerson, Bobby
Stewart and Jordan Whatley, the
very best and hope that 4-H will
continue to serve them through-
out their adult lives.

Health Dept. celebrates


'Clean Hands' week


FORT MYERS The Florida
Department of Health and the
Clean Hands Coalition celebrates
"Clean Hands Week," Sept. 16-
22.
Hand washing is the single
most important act you can do
to prevent getting sick and mak-
ing others sick. The Centers for
Disease Control estimates that
5,000 people die each year from
food borne illness. 78 million
become ill and between 79,000
and 96,000 die from hospital in-
fections each year. A direct link
to many of these deaths is poor
hand washing.
Hand washing is important for
food safety, disease, prevention
and personal health. Wash your
hands; before you eat and after
you use the bathroom, before,


during and after preparing food,
after handling animals or animal
waste, after playing sports, after
changing diapers, and anytime
your hands are dirty. Use soap
and water, scrub, rinse for 20 sec-
onds and dry.
Join the Florida Department of
Health to reduce illness. Practice
hand washing, make it a habit
and prevent illness and death.
Color posters from the "Fifth
Guy" hand washing campaign
are available for free distribution
by contacting a Florida Depart-
ment of Health Public Informa-
tion Officer.
For further information con-
tact: Roger Sockman, Region 6

Buying American supports farmers and environment


At the grocery store, I always,
check thle signs to find out where
the produce comes from.
I choose foods grown ill the
U.S. for several reasons. O(ne is
safety some countries do not
have the same restrictions on
pesticide use that the U.S. im-
poses. While the PDA does at-
tempt to check imported foods,
the sheer volume of food com-
ing into the country means they
can't check every crate.
Another reason I buy home-
grown food is that I like fresh
produce. The nutritional value
of fruits and vegetables changes
as the plants grow. When a fruit
or vegetable is "ripe" it is its nu-
tritional peak and at the peak of
flavor. When a fruit or vegetable
is picked, it is no longer alive, and
so cannot continue to increase
its nutritional value. In order to
ship food long distances, farm-
ers pick it early. Sometimes they


A
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken


pick produce before it is ripe so
that it can ripen during the time
it is traveling from the farm to
the supermarket. Thus a fruit or
vegetable that is allowed to ripen
on the vine has more nutritional
value than one that was picked
while it was still green.
Buying foods grown in the
U.S.A. also supports the Ameri-
can farmers, who face unfair
competition from imported
foods. The farmers in other
countries may pay their work-
ers less and don't have to meet


HRMC to provide low-rate mammogram screenings


CLEWISTON During
the month of October Hendry
Regional Medical Center will
be performing mammogram
screenings at a reduced rate of
$50 per screening. A mammo-
gram screening is an x-ray of the
breast, which is used to detect
breast changes in women who
have no signs or symptoms of


breast cancer,
Breast cancer is the most
common cancer among women,
other than skin cancer. It is the
second leading cause of cancer
death in women (after lung can-
cer). This year, approximately
178,480 women in the United
States will be found to have inva-
sive breast cancer. About 40,460


women will die from the disease
in 2007. Right now there are
slightly over 2 million women liv-
ing in the United States who have
been treated for breast cancer.
The chance ofawoman having
invasive breast cancer some time
during her life is about 1 in 8. The
chance of dying from breast can-
cer is about 1 in 33. Breast cancer


death rates are going down. This
decline is probably the result of
finding the cancer earlier and im-
proved treatment.
Early detection saves lives --
get your mammogram screening
at Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter. Call (863) 902-3061 to sched-
ule an appointment.


Health Department promotes Ovarian Cancer awareness


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) rec-
ognizes September as Ovarian
Cancer Awareness Month and en-
courages women to learn of per-
sonal risk factors and to schedule
routine check ups.
"Because the symptoms of
ovarian cancer are subtle and
similar to other illnesses, they
often are overlooked or misin-
terpreted, possibly leading to
late diagnosis and poor health
outcomes," State Surgeon Gen-
eral Ana M. Viamonte Ros, M.D.,
M.P.H. said. "Learning symptoms
and alerting a healthcare provider
can save lives."
The Gynecologic Cancer Foun-
dation includes the following


signs and symptoms for ovarian
cancer:
Abdominal discomfort
or pain from gas, indigestion,
pressure, swelling, bloating or
cramps
Nausea
Diarrhea or constipation
Frequent urination
Loss of appetite or full feel-
ing after a light meal
Weight gain or loss
Abnormal vaginal bleeding
According to the American
Cancer Society, ovarian cancer
is the eighth most common can-
cer, excluding non-melanoma
skin cancer and is the fifth lead-
ing cause of cancer death among
women in the United States. Ovar-


ian cancer causes more deaths
than any other cancer of the
female reproductive system. Ac-
cording to 2007 estimates, 22,430
new cases and 15,280 deaths
will occur this year in the United
States. The American Cancer So-
ciety also estimates that one in 67
women will develop ovarian can-
cer. The Florida Cancer Data Sys-
tem reports that 1,485 new cases
of ovarian cancer were diagnosed
in Florida in 2004, and 943 wom-
en lost their lives to this disease.
When ovarian cancer is diag-
nosed and treated in early stages
before the cancer spreads beyond
the ovary, the American Cancer
Society reports a five-year survival
rate of 93 percent. However, early


diagnosis occurs in only 19 percent
of ovarian cancer cases nation-
ally. Ovarian cancer is caused by
a malignant tumor in the ovaries
and often has no obvious signs or
symptoms until advanced stages.
Late stage diagnosis reduces the
opportunity for successful treat-
ment and recovery.
Factors that may increase the
risk of developing ovarian cancer
include:
Age-Risk increases with
age. Most cases occur in women
age 50 or older, but the disease
can also occur in younger wom-
en
Family history-Risk is high-
er for close relatives of women
with the disease


the same health and safety stan-
dards. Supporting the American
farmer helps support the Ameri-
can economy.
Another reason is taste. In my
opinion, vine-ripened fruits and
vegetables simply have more fla-
vor.
In the news recently comes
yet another reason to buy foods
grown locally it's good for the
earth. Transporting foods con-
sumes- fuel and contributes to


pollution of the greenhouse gas-
es. So it makes economic, envi-
ronmental and nutritional sense
to buy foods grown as close to
home as possible.
Before making any changes
in your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is es-
pecially important if you are on
any prescription drugs. Some
prescription drugs interact badly
with foods that would otherwise
be considered "healthy."

The professor and the jar


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
A professor stood before his
philosophy class and had some
items in front of him. When the
class began, he wordlessly picked
up a very large and empty jar and
proceeded to fill it with golf balls.
He then asked the students if the
jar was full. They agreed that it
was.
The professor then picked
up a box of pebbles and poured
them into the jar. He shook the
jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into
the open areas between the golf
balls. He than asked the students
if the jar was full. They agreed it
was.
The professor next picked up
a box of sand and poured it into
the jar. Of course, the sand filled
up everything else. He asked
once more if the jar was full. The


students responded with a unani-
mous, "Yes".
The professor then produced
two cups of coffee from under
the table and poured the entire
contents into the jar effectively fill-
ing the empty space between the
sand. The students laughed!
"Now," said the professor as
the laughter subsided, "I want
you to recognize that the jar rep-
resents your life. The golf balls
are the important things-God,
your church, your marriage, your
family, your health, your friends
and your favorite passions and if
everything else was lost and only
they remained, your life would
still be full.
The pebbles are the other
things that matter, like your job,
your house and your car.
The sand is "everything else-
-the small stuff." If you put the


sand in first, there is not room for
the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life. If you
spend all your time and energy
on the small stuff you will never
have room for the things that are
important to you. Pay attention to
the things that are critical to your
happiness. Talk to your Lord, your
spouse, take time to get medical
checkups, take your spouse out
to dinner and play another 18
holes or catch another fish.
Take care of the things that re-
ally matter. Set your priorities. The
rest is just sand."
One of the students raised her
hand and inquired what the cof-
fee represented. The professor
smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just
goes to show you that no matter
how full life may seem, there's al-
ways room for a couple of cups of
coffee with a friend."


Calvary Baptist welcomes new pastor


HENDRY COUNTY Calvary
Baptist Church in Hookers Point
said "good -bye" to longtime pas-
tor and resident, Mac Simmons.
Pastor Mac was part of Calvary
Baptist family for over 15 years.
He and his wife, Alma left to live
with their daughter.
On Aug. 26, the church had a
farewell dinner at the church. In
saying good bye to Pastor Mac
they also welcomed their new
pastor, David McClusky.
Pastor McClusky and wife,
Lydia have lived in Clewiston for
over 21 years. The new pastor has
been involved in ministry most
of his life. David is also involved
in the community. He is the vice
president of the long term devel-
opment organization "CREW".
He is also chair for "Relay for Life.
Asking why he is involved in so
much, his answer is" we need a
Christian influence in community
events. Christians need to be in-
volved in the community not only
supporting events by prayer but
also in attendance". David looks
forward to this new chapter in his
life. He always knew in his heart
that he would pastor one day.
He is looking forward to get-
ting previous programs started
again and introducing new ones.
The church wants to start a
children's church. Pastor David
shared with the congregation

Prayers to one who shares


our life or a celestial houseboy?


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
A frustrated mother did what
she could for her son, who
seemed to be helpless. She'd
tell me that she would tell him


to pick up his
things and he'd
askwhat hewas
supposed to do
with them, then
where should
he put them, if
she meant all
of them or only
certain things.
"It is easier to
do it myself"


?-



Samuel S.
Thomas


she'd say "than to go through
all of the trouble of trying to
get him to do it." "Yes, it is" I'd
agree, "but the net result is that
he doesn't have to do anything
for himself!" That's not growing
up; that's not learning to be a re-
sponsible adult. In fact, it's really
teaching avoidance of responsi-
bility. There are a lot of people
around who have mastered the
art of getting someone else to
do what they should be doing.
Employees will say "That's not
my job!" or a professional will
say "Let me refer you to ..." In
Church circles, people love to
pass things off to God that they
should be doing themselves. I
hear of people bringing God into
their prayers and into the pic-
ture when they should shoulder
their own burdens, get their own
show on the road.
People lose things from time
to time; all very natural. Then
they decide that they want to
find the lost items and will turn
to God to help them.
All well and good, but first
place your things so that you
can find them. Don't ask God
to bail you out when your own


lack of planning has caused an
inconvenience. Start searching
and let it serve as a lesson to be
better organized next time. Kids
(and some adults) won't study in
school and then pray to God to
help them get a good grade on
the test.
Immaturity and poor praying!
Take responsibility, be mature,
do what you're supposed to do
and then a quiet prayer to face
the test ahead with confidence
will be better. A lady told me
that the hurricane missed us one
year because "we prayed." I sup-
pose she thought that those in
the path of the storm weren't as
loved by God as she was, or that
their prayers weren't heard.
Someone who let their pets
run loose had one take off. They
felt praying would bring it back;
it didn't. I prayed that the animal
might be protected and find a
good home. I remember as a
child when our dog took off one
day and we searched. We prayed
for guidance and, if it was God's
will, for our "furry stepchild" to
return. He did, and then a prayer
of thanksgiving -- but also facing
the fact that we didn't pay close
enough attention and that, "ani-
mals will be animals."
I wonder if God is amused at
times when He hears our prayers;
the.answer may well be "Aw,
grow up!" if we treat Him only
as someone to do our bidding
and cover over our mistakes.
God isn't some sort of "celestial
houseboy" who is there to grant
all of our wishes! There is the par-
able about the widow who has
lost one of her ten silver coins
(Luke 15:8ff), She lights a lamp,
searches the house, and then
when she finds it on her own,
calls her friends and celebrates.
Her celebration is in thanksgiv-
ing for finding what is lost, but it


isn't an effort to avoid the search.
The parable about the lost sheep
(Matthew 18:10ff) tells about the
shepherd leaving ninety-nine of
his better-behaved sheep and
going off after a wayward one.
The joy is greater when the lost
one is recovered; we all under-
stand that. The shepherd wasn't
keeping a watchful eye on the
whole herd; so he goes off to
correct his (literal and figurative)
short-sightedness. When the
correction is made, it's time for
a'celebration. A part of the joy is
found in knowing that there was
a lost coin and the widow by her
own efforts found it; or the shep-
herd knowing there was a lost
sheep took corrective action on
his own.
We should ask God for help
with something when we've
short-sighted; when we forgot to
fill the gas tank, when we were
too tired to remember where
we left something, when we
were asked to do something and
wanted to pass it off on some-
body else, but don't try to cajole
God into making up for what is
really our responsibility in the
first place. The message of faith
is a message of growing, matur-
ing, accepting adult responsi-
bilities, doing our part. It's not
about dumping all of what is
uncomfortable on God and say-
ing "Here, You fix it." Paul writes
that when we were "worldly" or
"mere infants in Christ" that he
gave us "milk, not solid food,
for you were not ready for it."(1
Corinthians 3:lff)." He goes on
to talk about being more mature
in faith. The lesson is that we
grow up, stop retreating back
into infancy, and act our age. Do
our part, God does His part, and
then it will be solid food, solid
faith and real prayers for real an-
swers.

My last will and



testament


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
There is a possibility that this
might be my last night on earth.
As I write this article, I realize
that I might not wake up after
my surgery tomorrow. Mortality
is a humbling
thought.
I'm not
afraid of death.
A number of
years ago I
came to the
understanding
that for me,John
there are a lot Johni
of things worse
than death. I've seen too many
times when exotic means were
used to keep a body functioning
when the spirit had already left
the building. It's a personal deci-
sion of hope that some choose
and I honor that. It is not, how-
ever, something I would choose
for myself. I see death as one of
the ultimate healings that some
of us will receive. When my time
comes, I want to go.
Having said that, I realize that
I'm not yet ready to go. Even
though the doctor mentioned
death as a possibility, I was do-
ing okay until I was asked re-
peatedly at the hospital if I had
a living will or wanted to be an
organ donor. Then I had my
blood typed in case I needed a
transfusion. I know all of this
is precautionary, but it got me
thinking. What if I didn't survive
the surgery?
I did a quick self exam. My
relationship with my Maker is
good, but I am going to do a lit-
tle bit of final connection before
I go under -- just to make sure.
Kathy (my wife) and I are solid,
but I'm afraid that I will leave a
lot of things for her to clean up
in my passing. There is no way
I have the time to clean out my
office desk or finish many of the
other little odds and ends that I
usually take care of. Sorry dear.
And there are the personal
things. In my time left, what
do I still want to accomplish?
Are there things I would like to
say to those special people in
my life? I will make sure 1 tell
my wife that I love her at least
one more time. Those of you
who are weight challenged like
me will understand that I have
even been thinking about what
I would like to eat as my "last
meal"!


Professionally, I want to
make sure that the ministries
at the church are covered. I am
not naive enough to think that I
am indispensable. I know God's
ministry will continue with
or without me -- but the Lord
knows that I would rather it be
with me at this point.
But life is terminal, and so I
leave these thoughts as part of
my last will and testament. To
my God, I give my life, my soul,
my all. To my wife I leave my ev-
erlasting love and memories that
God has blessed us with. I also
leave in your care the effects of
my estate. I'm sorry for the piles
of junk that I have left for you
to sort through, but trust in the
strength of our God and the love
we shared and the friends we
have to help you through it.
To my family and friends I
leave my heartfelt thanks for
all of your support and love in
good times and bad. Words can
not adequately express the deep
feelings I harbor. To my church
family I leave my love and the
shared vision that God has given
us for His ministry in our church
and community. May you con-
tinue to love, support, and en-
courage one another in our
faith and fellowship. And for all
my readers, community, family
and friends, I leave thoughts of
a great God who meets us and
blesses us in our everyday life. I
share with you my favorite bene-
diction: "May God go before you
to defend you, come behind you
to protect you, and walk along-
side of you to befriend you. May
He dwell underneath you to up-
lift you, rest above you to bless
you, and dwell within you to
give you peace, now and forever
more." Amen.
Addendum: I had scheduled
this article to go out if I went up,
but by God's grace I survived the
operation to submit it person-
ally. Consideration that I might
not live past tomorrow has chal-
lenged me to rethink how I'm
going to live today. I will defi-
nitely make sure I connect inti-
matelywith God on a daily basis.
Every day I will not only tell my
wife I love her, I will show her.
I will look for opportunities to
share with friends and strangers
appreciation and the love of our
Lord. And with God's strength
I will start working on cleaning
out my desk and other areas of
my life which need straightening
up. Amen and Amen.

addition to the needed funding
the church and its supporters are
helping to protect the environ-
ment by keeping toxic inks, toner,
etc, out of our landfills. If you
have items for recycling you may
call the parsonage (863) 983-1804
for pick up or you may bring the
items to the church during service
hours or to the parsonage at 730
E. Concordia Ave. at other times.
Jackie Miller is minister of First
Christian Church.
