Feb. 25 at 6:30 p.m. at the Moore Haven

Around 30 people showed up to voice

(Lake Okeechobee Habitat Association) and
their plans to lease the state owned prop-

The sole supporter and also LOHA board
member showed up to give a statement and
answer questions. A copy of the lease was
expected at the meeting which the LOHA
board member did not bring.
Attendees included members from Unit-
ed Waterfowlers, Lake Okeechobee Airboat
Club, Florida Airboat Association, Kissim-

Strangers taking pictures of

my home
"Today I watched a woman taking pic-
tures of my home as well as my neighbors'
homes from inside of her vehicle. Since I
live on a corner lot she took pictures of my
house from three sides, including from the
street one block over. Has anyone else seen
this and does anyone know what this is
about? My first thought was the Census but I
see no logical reason why they would need
pictures of your property."

Steadham wins co-angler
title

CLEWISTON -Pro Marty Brown of Dal-
ton, Ga., caught a five-bass limit weighing 10
pounds, 14 ounces Saturday to win the FLW
American Fishing Series Southeast tourna-
inent on Lake Okeechobee with a three-day
total of 15 bass weighing 52 pounds, 1 ounce.
For his victory, Brown earned $24,680.
"I was lucky enough to find a transition
area where the fish were moving in and out "
Brown said. "I was here during the FLW
Eastern Series event a few weeks ago and I
knew there was a spawn then, with the full
moon corning again I knew another spawn
was corning. I just basically fished the sane
location all week long which was the east
wall area knowing that I would have to work
it, work it, work it, until I caught my fish. It
was loaded; the challenge was being able to
corne up with the kickers which were few
and far between due to the cold front.
"I had my limit today by about 10 and was
able to cull a few times, but I never really did
find that one big kicker today. I caught all
my fish flipping a Black Zoorn 6" Lizard on a
Castaway Flipping Stick.
Rounding out the top-5 pros were:
2nd: Jeff McMillan, Belle Glade, Fla., 15
bass, 46-6, $8,391
3rd: Don Dernott, Boca Raton, Fla., 15
bass, 46-5, $5,923
4th: Jeff Fitts, Keystone Heights, Fla., 15
bass, 45-14, $4,936
5th: Dwayne Horton, Knoxville, Tenn., 15
bass, 45;-8 $4 442


Jesse Steadharn of Florence, Miss., won
the Co-angler Division and $9,882 cash, with
a three-day total of 15-bass weighing 33
pounds, 4 ounces.
"I arn still shaking all over," said Stead-
harn who is fishing with FLW for his second
year. "I caught all Iny fish using skinny dip-
pers in grass fields about 4 -5 feet deep. The
bite was not as good today and the fish were
definitely smaller, I thought I was going to
finish in third place.
"Fishing was definitely a lot more difficult
today. I had a 4 -5-pounder that broke my
line early in the day and then I didn't get my
kicker until the last 20 minutes of the tourna-
Inent; that 4 0 pound fish was the one that
definitely won it for me.
Steadharn caught five bass weighing
14-12 Thursday while fishing with pro Dale
Walker of Miarni, Fla., to open the tourna-
rnent in sixth place. On Friday he added five
more bass weighing 9 to make the top-10
cut in fifth place while fishing with pro Rick
Marsh of High Point, N.C. Finally, on Satur-
day, he sealed the win with five bass weigh-
ing 9-8 while fishing with Ayrnon Wilcox of
Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.
Rounding out the top five co-anglers
were:
2nd: Kevin Thornas, Mirarnar, Fla., 15
bass, 32-15, $3,953
3rd: Bucky Helms, Dallas, N.C., 11 bass,
30-11, $1,976
4th: Brent Houlihan, Naples, Fla., 15 bass,
30-11, $1,729
5th: Robert Wood, Jupiter, Fla., 11 bass,
30-4, $1,482

West Palm Beach -At its Feb. 24 meet-
ing, the Health Care District of Palm Beach
County Board of Commissioners approved
accepting the highest bid for the purchase of
the 14-acre Glades General Hospital facility
and property in Belle Glade. The accepted
bid for $250,000 was made by Miami-based
developers Castello Brothers, LLC.
"We are encouraged by the bidder's inter-
est in developing new housing on the prop-
erty, which would serve as a community re-


source and asset," said Dwight D. Chenette,
MBA, MPH, Chief Executive Officer of the
Health Care District of Palm Beach County.
"The plans outlined by the bidder will put
the property back on the tax rolls and may
create additional jobs while renovations are
underway."
Castello Brothers, which currently co-
owns a 384 unit multi-family development in
Belle Glade called Belle Glade Gardens, pro-
poses a residential use for the Glades Gen-


eral Hospital property at 1201 South Main
Street in Belle Glade. With the Board's vote
on Wednesday, the transaction now moves
to the closing phase, which will take place
within 60 days.
Glades General Hospital served the rural
western Palm Beach County communities
for over 65 years before being retired on
October 15, 2009. The same day that the
doors closed at Glades General Hospital, the
Health Care District opened the doors to its


replacement, Lakeside Medical Center.
The new 70-bed facility is the county's
only public hospital, featuring all-private pa-
tient rooms, an expansive 24-hour Emergen-
cy Room and modern technology through-
out.
Lakeside Medical Center, which was com-
pleted ahead of schedule and below budget,
is centrally located at the intersection of US
441 and State Road 80 in Belle Glade.

Clewiston Early registration is now un-
derway for the Hendry/Glades County Big
"O" Birding Extravaganza scheduled for
March 25 to March 28. With too Inuch to
take-in just three days, this year's extrava-
ganza has grown into a four-day festival.
Early registrants can take advantage of deep
registration discounts on March 4 and March

"Attendance last year far exceeded our
expectations, and we've received an incred-
ible amount of regional support to help ex-
pand the festival this year," says festival con-
inittee chair Janet Papinaw. "Plus, we're all
eager to hear our Keynote Speaker Saturday
evening, James Currie, the host of Birding
Adventures TV."
An all-inclusive four-day festival pass, if
ordered by March 5, is $125. After March
5, the sarne pass is $175. While the all-in-
clusive pass EXCLUDES accornrodations,

Phone Discounts Available to CenturyLink Customers

With Link-Up America and Lifeline Assistance Programs, qualified low-income telephone custom-
ers can save money on installation charges and the monthly rate for basic local residential service.
This includes access to long distance carriers, Emergency Services, Operator Services, Directory
Assistance and Toll Blocking.
Link-Up America is a federally-sponsored program that provides discounted service installation
charges to qualifying low-income customers. It provides a 50 percent discount, up to a maximum
of $30 for new residential installation charges for telephone service. The balance of the installation
charges can be paid, interest free, over a 12 month period. In addition, the monthly service charge
for toll restriction will be waived for customers requesting or required to have the service.
Lifeline Assistance is another federally-sponsored program for low-income customers. It provides a
discount to the monthly charge for basic residential telephone service. Lifeline Assistance Program
rates have been reduced and guidelines have been changed to allow for more low-income custom-
ers.
To qualify for both programs, customers may enroll in the CenturyLink Lifeline program by pro-
viding verification that they meet state low-income eligibility requirements. In addition, Tribal Tele-
phone Assistance is available for those living on federally-recognized American Indian Tribal lands.
If you live in a CenturyLink service area, please call 1-800-366-8201 or visit wwwcenturylink.
com/lifeline with questions or to request an application for the Lifeline/Link-Up programs.

thing inside of us suggests there might be
something more. That is God's calling in
our lives to be all that we can be. We can't,
however, be all that we can be until we step
by faith outside of the limited confinement
of the bowl we are living in, no matter how
comfortable it might be.
Have you given thought to the possibility
that you might bein spiritual goldfish bowl
at the moment? Perhaps you have found
yourself just swimming and swimming and
going in circles. The lesson of the goldfish
bowl is that if you can get out, God has so
much more for you than you've ever experi-
enced before. He wants to introduce you to
the big pond you were made for.
There is a big pond out there God has
prepared for all of us. He wants to do some-
thing amazing through each of us! Let us
grow to our potential.

When do some things ever

"Expire?" maybe never! Good
OWSI i
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+ .
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
An acquaintance of Mohawk indian origin
was visiting one day awhile back. He asked


if there was a branch of his bank in my town
and I told him where to find it. When he re-
turned he told me of the difficult time he had
cashing a check there. He said that the teller
asked him for all sorts of identification and
then wanted one with a picture on it.
"I gave her my Indian Status card issued
by the government" he said. "She said she
couldn't accept it" he went on "because it
didn't have any expiration date on it." I told
her "Lady, there is no expiration date on it
because there is no time I expire being an
Indian!" He got his check cashed! I recently
attended a retirement conference for clergy.
One thing was pretty apparent; none of us
had "retired" being clergy. All of us were in-
volved in ministries in one form or another,
even if only in a limited, part-time capacity.
Apparently, ordination doesn't expire ei-
ther. One of my former mentors and friends
sent his new address in his retirement; mov-
ing about 2,500 miles from his last ministry.
He told me about picking new furniture and
then having to decide how he was going to
"contribute" in his new location. Both the
Old Testaments and New Testaments re-
mind us that we are "a priest forever, after
the Order of Mehchizedek (Psalm 110:5,
Hebrews 5:6, 10ff)". Those called to special
ministries and identified with religious titles
seem never to retire. I know of no tradition


that "revokes" an ordination, or has any ma-
jor ministry "expiring" -like the Energizer
Bunny, it just keeps going and going and go-
ing! And, by the way, this includes another
"priesthood" -the priesthood of all believ-
ers. Peter reminds us "You are a chosen peo-
ple, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peo-
ple belonging to God...(1 Peter 2:9)" When
does that ministry begin? At baptism when
you become a part of the family of God.
Whether baptized as an infant or as an
adult, and by whatever means; one is a part
of God's family and has a ministry or "priest-
hood." Does that expire or is it "revoked?"
Never! Like those who are ordained; there
may be times and circumstances when
ministry is not practiced but it still serves to
mark us. A man once asked me if I could
"undo" a baptism! As we talked, I found out
the problem wasn't with the baptism but in
the record-keeping that went with it (which
was corrected).
Strange question; if we believe that bap-
tism involves God, how could we possibly
undo His work?! We do what the Lord com-
mands: "Go and make disciples of all na-
tions, baptizing them... (Matthew 28:19)"
and when we do, the Lord surely does His
part too, never to expire -we're His always,
everywhere, anyway! That's really Good
News!

Life in a Gold Fish Bowl
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Once upon a time, many years ago, I
proved my manhood by tossing a carnival
ball in a little glass bowl and won a goldfish.
I carried it home in a plastic bag, kept it in a
jar until I could go out and purchase an of-
ficial goldfish bowl from the store.
If you've ever had a goldfish, you know
just what happens to them. You put them
in their little goldfish bowl and they just
keep swimming and swimming around the
bowl.
The crazy thing is that when a goldfish is
put in a little bowl, it starts to produce an
enzyme that keeps it from growing. Put it in
a larger bowl, and it grows a little bit larger.
When you take it out of the bowl and put it
in a big pond, it starts to grow into the size it
was meant to be.
Someone once said that we need to live
every day like it will be our last, for one day
we will be right. There's a lot of wisdom in
that. Too many people are limiting them-
selves and their lives to the small goldfish
bowl they are living in.
Though we may believe all the right be-
liefs, go to all the right meetings, and do the
right things, there are times when some-

school nurse at the sarne school where Ms.
Mathis worked. Her morn recently retired af-
ter 30 years with the school district, too.
On Feb. 24, during the "Wheel of Fortune"
airing, Kathy Mathis told the garne show
host, Pat Sajak, that she currently worked at
the Lake Placid FDLRS (pronounced as Fid-
dlers). FDLRS stands for Florida Diagnostic
and Learning Resources Systern which is
a statewide service for families of students
with exceptional needs.
She played well during the first 3 puzzles
on "Wheel".
"I played in the third garne taped that
day. I started off really well and then didn't
get much more of a chance to solve any
puzzles. During cornrercials, Pat Sajak said
he could tell that I knew the answers to the
two puzzles that I couldn't participate in.
He said it was different than at horne as it
is always your turn there. And he was right.
Even though I knew the answer, if it wasn't
my turn or I hit "lose a turn," I wasn't al-
lowed to solve the puzzle. Very frustrating."
said Ms. Mathis.
Garne participants must pay their own
travel and lodging expenses. She was not
the big winner, but at least got more than

thKallK)0M thi >la n$ ,0 during the Feb.
24th garne, and she enjoyed her farnily's
company during her stay in California.

GLADES/HIGHLANDS -- In January re-
tired teacher, Kathy Mathis, traveled to Cul-
ver City, California to try her turn on "Wheel
of Fortune."
She and 19 others went through audi-
tions and were chosen to spin the 1,000
pound wheel. Her garne was shown on TX
Feb. 24.


Kathy Mathis retired from the Glades
County School District in 2008 after 30 years
of service.
She came to Moore Haven in 1964 when
her father, Ernest Hilliard, was stationed in
Moore Haven as a Florida State Trooper.
Kathy Mathis graduated from Moore Haven
High School, went to college and returned
to teach English and coach girls' sports at
MHHS.
She finished her 30 year career at Glades
County Schools after spending the last 16
years as director of Exceptional Student Ed-
ucation. Coincidentally, her morn, Patricia
Hilliard, first worked at the health depart-
Inent as a nurse, and later went to work as a
