Relay for Life event set


Goal for weekend
fundraiser is $50,000

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - For Sandi
Rodriguez, organizing the Relay
for Life event in Clewiston is a par-
ticularly personal endeavor.
At 30, Ms. Rodriguez was diag-
nosed with ovarian Cancer.
Remembering that period of


her life, her family and friends who
saw her through the difficult
ordeal, she believes the right thing
to do is to give back.
"My opinion is that cancer does
not discriminate. It doesn't matter
that you're rich or poor, male or
female, White or Hispanic," said
Ms. Rodriguez. "For me, it was
horrible."
The Relay for Life event is
planned for Friday, Feb. 16, at 6
p.m. The overnight event runs into
the next day, ending at noon on


Saturday.
Teams at the event walk laps
around the location, with at least
one member from every team
walking at all times.
The event will offer more this
year, and organizers hope more
people will be involved. The public
is encouraged to come out and
take a look around and stay for a
while if they like, or organize
teams to take part in the worth-
while event.
Entertainment will include


bands, singers, tumblers, a gospel
choir and the Baton Sugar Dolls
performing for the crowds. Recre-
ation activities for kids, including a
bounce house, will be at the site.
The teams will compete
against each other to see who rais-
es the most money by the end of
the event. This year's Relay theme
is "Rocking Around the World,"
and already, teams representing
Rock's greatest are participating,
including the Beatles team, the
Chubby Checkers and the Grateful


Dead.
There are currently 11 teams
signed up to take part in the event,
including teams from the local law
enforcement agencies, schools,
hospital and the city of Clewiston
itself.
Tonight the festival committee
is holding a meeting in preparation
of the event next weekend at the
Hendry County Fairgrounds. It is

Henry Lewis
in Clewiston

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Back then, it
didn't feel as though the issues
that plague the world today
were in Clewiston. If they were,
they did a good job staying out
of Tiger field.
Students in high school in
the late 1960s braved the school
week knowing that Friday
would be near, and the sound of
the stadium cheering for the
hometown boys would light up
the field at least one night out of
the week.
For a young Robert Egley, the
games seemed to comprise
everything. The team was pretty
good, according to the stan-
dards that a young, proud
school student would gauge
such a thing by.
"I never missed a Tiger foot-
ball game," Dr. Egley, now the


principal of the same school he
graduated from, Clewiston High
School, remembered. The thrill
of watching the great ones play
seemed to motivate the young
student to do well in school for
the chance at sitting in on the
game.
Henry Lewis visited Clewis-
ton last week. The occasion was
certainly not welcomed, he was
in town to support his family at
his sister's funeral. Preparing for
the burial ceremony, he never-
theless tried to focus away from
being in a negative mood.
' He visited with his other sis-
ter, Helen Boyd. Ms. Boyd works
at the Clewiston High School
site, where she takes care of
infants at the daycare center.
When he heard that Mr.
Lewis was visiting Clewiston,
Dr. Egley pleaded with Ms. Boyd
to have him visit the school. The
principal hadn't seen the
"hometown hero" in more than
30 years.

Letters to the Editor


Low Phosphorus Rule
critical to Everglades
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
Jan. 31, that his department is
proposing a new state rule to
protect water quality by restrict-
ing the use of phosphorous and
nitrogen in fertilizers for urban
turf and lawns.
* Once the rule becomes
effective - perhaps sometime
this spring - the only products
approved for sale for consumer
landscape use will be no or low
phosphate fertilizers.
* Even small additions of such
nutrients as phosphorus and
nitrogen have proven to trigger
adverse effects on the biological
conditions of the natural water
bodies in Florida.
* However, there is already
cause for optimism. For exam-
ple, the South Florida Water
Management District's storm
water treatment areas have
reduced total phosphorus enter-
ing the Everglades by 68 percent
over the past few years. More-
over, working closely with area
farmers to improve their farming
practices, we have prevented
more than 2,200 metric tons of
phosphorus from entering this
fragile ecosystem.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District applauds the
proposed rule as a sensible meas-
ure to protect our water
resources. We believe this rule is
another key step toward improv-
ing water quality by addressing
the problem at its source.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District looks forward
to working closely with the Flori-
da Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services and
other government agencies to
promote the new rule and fur-
ther other environmentally
responsible practices.

ment District
HRMC medical
team in action
On Jan. 22, 2007, our six
week old infant, Preston Torres,


had a respiratory arrest. Thank-
fully, his mom and dad were
trained in CPR. They did rescue
breathing and gave chest com-
pressions and restored his respi-
rations while waiting for the first
responders and EMS medics to
arrive. After stabilizing the baby,
EMS quickly transported him to
Hendry Regional Medical Center
where they were met by Dr. Raul
Hernandez and his relief Dr.
Denise Semashko. The profes-
sional stall of RNs, respiratory
therapists, lab techs and X-ray
techs, immediately started treat-
ment. This was a joint effort of
many caregivers.
Our special thanks to Jen-
nifer Daniels, RN, Ramon Soto,
RN, Manon Thivierge, RN, Gail
Wiseman, who managed the
flow of supplies and Kelly Reck-
ter, RT, manager. There was
also Tom Akins from mainte-
nance and the dietary depart-
ment. This was the HRMC fami-
ly pulling together to save a life.
After several hours, the transfer
crew from Joe DiMaggio Chil-
dren's Hospital in Hollywood
flew the baby by helicopter for
further treatment.
Their expertise in caring for
children is unparalleled. We can-
not neglect to mention our vol-
unteer fire department who
responds to all helicopter land-
ings at the hospital. They leave
their jobs to help keep landings
safe on our grass field. Thanks
fellows! We want to express our
gratitude to all who helped in
this frightening situation. We
would hope to inspire everyone
to learn CPR, it might be your
loved one saved next time. We
hope the community will sup-
port our hospital foundation's
plans to build a new hospital in
the near future. We can all help

Chamber Buzz


By Sean Moore
Executive Director of the
Chamber of Commerce
Greetings! Well it has been a
couple of weeks since I have been
able to sit down at a keyboard and
type this column. I guess that is
either a blessing or a curse
depending on who is reading the
paper! As many of you already
know I am currently doing two
jobs. As a result I am a little bit
harder to get a hold of. But trust
me, I am more than available to all
of you. I have begun my training
with the Small Business Develop-
ment Center to become a certified
business analyst with the goal of
extending those free services to
Hendry and Glades counties.
I think there may be a story in


this edition or a coming edition of
the paper telling more about that
so I will not say much more and
steal their thunder. What I will say
is that I am still able to be reached
here at the Chamber through either
email orvoicemail.
Once we get office space estab-
lished here in Clewiston for my
new position, I will let you all know
that number as well, so you can get
straight to me. I still hope I am
asked to be involved, or help out
with, all the things for which you
have come to depend on me to
lend a hand or give advice. The bet-
ter news is that just because I am
not in the office doesn't mean that
you all can not reach the office. I
have said on numerous occasions,
both Cathy and Nina know more
than I do in most cases anyway.


They will still be here like normal.
The Chamber will not suffer in any
way and in fact may even improve
- addition by subtraction!
My board of directors has not
only understood, but they have
been extremely supportive of
everything and stepped in when I
was not available to make sure
everything continues to get
accomplished. Since I have been
pretty busy the last couple of
weeks, there are a few things that
have not been reported in this
space about some of our Cham-
ber members and we will work to
play catch up in the next few
weeks. Some businesses have
moved but remain open, others
have just opened up and are
ready to be discovered and others
are making improvements to


existing locations and they
deserve a tip of the cap.
There have been tournaments
and fundraisers and a multitude of
other things that require attention
and we will get to all of that as well
as stay on top of the new items
that come our way. As I run out of
space in this column I want to be
sure I point out that this weekend
is the Lion's Club Heart Ball. If you
want tickets you should contact a
Lion's Club member as soon as
possible. You can also contact us
here at the Chamber for informa-
tion. Thanks for hanging around
as things get a little crazy for me,
but I am back in writing and will
continue to do all I can to help
your Clewiston Chamber of Com-
merce serves you in the manner
you have come to expect.

SFWMD hosts Chinese delegation


WEST PALM BEACh - The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) recently hosted a
delegation of Chinese water man-
agers and academics to demon-
strate the District's expertise and
industry-leading best practices in
hydrologic modeling, water supply
and environmental restoration.
Ma Zurong, director general of
the Hetao Irrigation District in China
, visited the SFWMD on December
27-28 with his U.S. host, Dr. Harris
Han of Houston , Texas. Their visit
was coordinated by Dr. Chansheng
He, professor and graduate advisor
in the Department of Geography at
Western Michigan University.
The delegation met with
SFWMD executive management,
engineering and hydrologic model-
ing personnel to achieve a better
understanding of water manage-
ment policies and programs in the
United States,
particularly as they relate to inte-
grated water resources manage-
ment, water rights, and environ-


Agency Independently
Owned and Operated


mental assessment and protection.
They received briefings on the Cen-
tral and South
Florida Project; the SFWMD's
advanced hydrologic modeling
best practices; the District's region-
al water supply planning process-
es; and the Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Plan.
Also as part of the visit, the dele-
gation toured Stormwater Treat-
ment Area I in western Palm Beach
County and the SFWMD control
room, from which several water
structures are operated. Staff from
the District's Big Cypress Basin serv-
ice center provided tours of ongoing
environmental restoration work at
Lake Trafford and Corkscrew
Swamp as well as a tour of the
basin's water management system.
"The South Florida Water Man-
agement . District is recognized
internationally for our pioneering
work in such areas as environmen-
tal restoration and hydrologic mod-
eling," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chairman Kevin McCarty.

"Given the remarkable ecosystem
we help protect, we are fortunate
to attract some of the
most talented scientists and
engineers in the world. Our expert-
ise is often sought by other water
managers, and we are delighted to
assist them in implementing their
projects and spreading a vision of
global environmental protection."
In addition, the visit was utilized
to showcase the District's use of
state-of-the-art supervisory control
and data acquisition (SCADA) sys-
tems in water management.
According to SFWMD Executive
Director Carol Ann Wehle, the dele-
gation was able to observe opera-
tions of these large-scale, distributed
measurement and control systems
in irrigation scheduling, lake level
simulation, and flood forecasting to
help them refine the implementa-
tion plan of similar SCADA systems
in the Hetao District.
"One of the principal objectives
of this visit was to observe actual
applications of SCADA systems in
irrigation management," added Dr.
He. "The SFWMD is one of the
most advanced water manage-
ment agencies in the nation and
one of the best equipped with
SCADA in support of hydrologic
modeling and water resources
decision making."


Located in western China , the
Hetao Irrigation District is the sec-
ond largest water management dis-
trict in China and seventh largest in
the world. It employs approxi-
mately 6,000 people.
SFWMD expertise also is sought
in the aftermath of various natural
disasters. Following Hurricane Kat-
rina, for example, two senior
SFWMD scientists were invited by
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
to serve as technical advisors on
computer modeling studies and
operations that helped- assess the
causes of damage in affected areas.
Funded by a grant from the Unit-
ed States National Science Founda-
tion and the Sri Lankan National
Science Foundation, a U.S. team of
experts was assembled by the
SFWMD and the Colorado School
of Mines following the devastating
Indian tsunami to research the
short-term and long-term impacts
of the disaster on groundwater
resources in the coastal belt; to
date, it is the only comprehensive
groundwater resources study in the
region. The SFWMD subsequently
hosted a Sri Lankan hydrogeologist
visiting the United States under a
sponsorship from Water for People
and provided training on computer
modeling and field investigations of
coastal groundwater resources.

Workforce


Alliance


celebrates
BELLE GLADE - Workforce
Alliance, an organization that pro-
vides career development servic-
es for job seekers and human
resources services for businesses
throughout Palm Beach County,
recently secured tickets for Glades
area high school football champi-
ons to attend the NFL Experience
in Miami.
Steve Craig, Workforce
Alliance's Vice President of Busi-
ness and Economic Develop-
ment, met with Rodney Barreto,
chair of the host committee for
Super Bowl XLI to explore a
unique way to acknowledge the
achievements of the three Glades
area high school football teams
that won state titles - the Glades
Central Raiders, Pahokee Blue
Devils and Glades Day School
Gators.
"Having Super Bowl XLI in
your backyard is always great
economically for the neighboring
counties, but getting additional
recognition for Palm Beach Coun-
ty high schools is an added wel-
come touch," said Mr. Craig.
This event participation was
made possible due to the gen-
erosity of Mr. Barreto, who organ-
ized the field trip for all team play-
ers and coaches and provided 200
tickets for the NFL Experience,
and the efforts of the School Dis-
trict of Palm Beach County, which
arranged the transportation to the
event.

School

Happenings

KEC/Canal Point
Elementary School
Fourth Grade students wrote
to a writing prompt last week
and had their papers grade by
two graders. Each student who
scored a four (4) or better had
their names put into a drawing
for DVDs! We had many students
who had their names put into the
drawing! The winners of the
DVDs were Kennan Hamilton,
Malik Burgess, Joelisha Banfield,
Tylik Hill, Jesus Prieto, and Den-
etrious Walker. Congratulations
to our super fourth grade writers!
FCAT Testing for fourth
graders began this week as they
took the Writing portion of the
test. The students were confident
and excited as they prepared to
write their best!
FCAT Tip of the Week:
Encourage students to get a
good night's sleep the evening
prior to the test, and to wake up
early enough to get their brain's
active by test time. Students
could engage in a quiet activity
before bedtime to help them
relax. Reading a book would be a
great activity!
100th Day Celebration
The celebration was a great
success! We had over 100 par-
ents, students and staff! Favorite
activities included: how many
times can you jump?, The candy
guessing jar, finding the perime-
ter with cheese crackers, weight
and measurement, and candy
graphing. Many of our families
received great door prizes! Thank
you to all of our families who
came out and celebrated the
100th day of school

Expand your cultural horizon


By Jo Coombs
LABELLE - Is your cultural
aura becoming dim? Is your body
shriveling from lack of laughter
and entertainment? Why not
drive the short distance to LaBelle
and take in the theater?
In the early '90s, some folks
from LaBelle formed a theatrical
group. With the city's old empty
fire station, donations of seats,
equipment and a lot of hard
work from volunteers, the Fire-
house Cultural Center was creat-
ed.
Now the Firehouse Cultural
Center, located at 241 N. Bridge
Street, is in its 14th season. Not
only are there people from
LaBelle who perform at the Fire-
house, but people from Muse,
Ortona, Pioneer, Clewiston,
Lehigh Acres and Fort Myers, too.
From October through April,
there are usually five plays and a
musical or variety show per-
formed.
The next play will be South-
ern Fried Murder by Billy St. John
at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and
Saturday, February 8-10 and 15-

The suspect used the construc-

up the ATM and drove it to his
truck, where he dumped the ATM
into the bed of the vehicle. The
suspect was able to drive away
before officials could respond to

specific information about the

area.
The Small Business Center at
Florida Gulf Coast University had
been searching for a person to
head its business incubation pro-
gram in Hendry and Glades coun-
ties, including the area of
Immokalee, when it offered the
position to Mr. Moore.
Mr. Moore initially turned down
the job, but later decided it was
"too good of an opportunity to pass
up." The university gives Mr. Moore
a chance to complete his educa-
tion, which, he said, "tipped the
scales" in favor.

open to anyone interested in partic-
ipating.
About her chairing the event for
the third year, Ms. Rodriguez said
she agreed to organize the event
again this year because she "didn't
run fast enough."
"I was gong to retire, but it just
didn't work," Ms. Rodriguez joked.
"They love me."
According to her, the event
would not be possible without the
support of the city of Clewiston,
one of the biggest partners of the
event.
"All I have to do is call Mr. Wen-
dell Johnson or Sean Scheffler,"


Mr. Moore will continue serving
as executive director until the end
of April. He said he will continue to
be active in the various committees
and organizations of which he is
now a member.
He said he is excited at the
prospect of helping the communi-
ties in a slightly different manner.
Mr. Moore's office will counsel
prospective new business owners,
giving residents and others advice
on how to start a new business and
how to secure funding. The agency
will specialize in developing busi-
ness plans for bank loans and pro-
vide other services, all for free.
Regarding his new role, Mr.
Moore said, "It's really the next step
of what I'm doing here." His role as
executive director of the chamber


she said. Others, though, also
pitch in to help, ensuring that the
event is a success. "We're lucky
we have a lot of people willing to
help. An event of this size is not
easy to put together."
This year's fundraising goal is
$50,000, and the committee so far
has about $11,000.
All of the money raised will
come back to Hendry and Glades
counties to continue funding pro-
grams like "Look Good, Feel
Good," a program that helps
women with Cancer get fitted for
new wigs and learn how to apply
makeup with skin treated by
chemotherapy.
Cancer has a way of not only
affecting the patient diagnosed
with it, but family as well. The
Relay for Life event offers a night


third Tuesday of each month.

witnesses say the Clewiston ATM
theft happened.
That Clewiston robbery, which
happened shortly after midnight
on Oct. 27, has many of the same
elements as the Cape Coral theft.
Like the incident in Cape
Coral, witnesses in Clewiston
reported seeing a man driving a
white pickup truck, most likely a
Ford F250, along with -another
passenger, to the site of the ATM
machine at Olde Cypress Bank.

After graduating from high
school in 1970, Mr. Lewis took a
full scholarship to college and
left Clewiston. Then, before
long, he was playing pro football
with some of the gridiron's best,
playing for the Houston Oilers
for two years and then the Balti-
more Colts.
He shared a few stories with
some of the assistant principals at
Clewiston High, who seemed
enthralled by the stories of life in
the NFL. They asked him if he
played with some of the more
notable figures, which at that time
carried on a famous rivalry with
another team. They listened
intently.
Now, Mr. Lewis is now better
known as Pastor Lewis to the
members of his congregation in


saw him playing an important role
in attracting businesses and visitors
to the area.
His decision to leave the cham-
ber was a hard one, by his own
account.
"It was amazing," he said about
his role at the chamber and the
experience he got while working in
Clewiston. "Leaving was the hard-
est decision I've ever had to make."
According to Mr. Moore, the
agency can already begin to take
clients, with support from the staff
at the university. The university is
also currently looking for office
space in Clewiston and Hendry
counties, and has an office in
Immokalee.
The chamber board is expected
to begin advertising for the position


out for the survivors, those dealing
with the disease, or friends or fam-
ily who have lost someone to the
disease.
"Cancer is very tough, it takes
more than just the person who's
sick," said Ms. Rodriguez. "It's very
personal. No one knows what
you're going through."
Almost anyone can name
someone who has had to deal with
the disease, she said, all the more
reason to help in fighting it.
"Maybe tomorrow it will be
your turn," Ms. Rodriguez said.

ticipate in the event, contact Sandi

New bishop has

agriculture background


The Catholic Diocese of Venice
has a new Bishop.
In January, Bishop John
Nevins, 75, retired. His successor
is Bishop Frank Dewane.
Bishop Dewane was born
March 9, 1950, to Eleanor (Pren-
dergast) and Ben Dewane in
Green Bay, Wis., the third of their
four children. A dairy farm of
approximately 200 acres was the
environment for his early life
where he was raised with his
brother and two sisters. The fami-
ly was part of the St. James Parish
Community in Cooperstown,
Wis., where he also attended ele-
mentary school. He later went to
Denmark High School in Den-
mark, Wis. The recipient of a
bachelor's degree in social sci-
ences from the University of Wis-
consin, Bishop Dewane also has
a master's in international
administration from The Ameri-
can University in Washington,
D.C. Prior to entering seminary
formation, Bishop Dewane
worked in New York City for a
subsidiary of PepsiCo and for the
National Broadcasting Corpora-
tion (NBC) based in Moscow.
Bishop Dewane began his stud-
ies for the priesthood at Notre
Dame University in South Bend,
Ind., where he completed one year
of philosophy. Next he did his theo-
logical studies at the Pontifical Gre-
gorian University in Rome. He then
completed advanced studies in
canon law at the Pontifical Univer-
sity of St. Thomas Aquinas in
Rome. On July 16, 1988, then-Bish-
op Adam J. Maida ordained Bishop
Dewane to the priesthood for serv-
ice in the Diocese of Green Bay.
Following his ordination, Bish-
op Dewane served as an assistant
pastor at Ss. Peter and Paul Parish
in Green Bay and worked at the
diocesan Tribunal. In 1991, he

Bishop Frank Dewane.
was sent to serve as a member of
the Permanent Observer Mission
of the Holy See to the United
Nations in New York City. From
1995 to 2001, he worked at the
Pontifical Council "Cor Unum,"
referred to as the charitable arm of
the Holy Father, until being named
under secretary of the Pontifical
Council for Justice and Peace in
2001. Bishop Dewane held this
position until his nomination by
Pope Benedict XVI to be the coad-
jutor bishop of the Diocese of
Venice in Florida.
Bishop Dewane has been a
member of the official delegation
of the Holy See to numerous inter-
national and United Nations con-
ferences and world summits.
Among the topics addressed by
these gatherings were: the envi-
ronment; economic and social
development; population; women
and development; human settle-
ments or housing; the Internation-
al Criminal Court; racism, racial
discrimination, xenophobia and
related intolerance; financing for
development; water; climate
change; and world trade.

If small is all you are prepared for ...


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
John and Mike were out fish-
ing. Mike watched John with a
growing curiosity because John
would catch a fish and keep it,
then catch another fish and
throw it away. And John contin-
ued this with catch after catch.
The really strange part was that it
was always the big ones that
lohn threw away.
Finally, Mike couldn't contain
his curiosity, so he called out the
obvious question, "How come
you're throwing away the big
ones?" John answered back,
"Oh, because I only have an 8-
inch frying pan!"
In many ways, if small is all
you're prepared for, then small is
all you'll get. That's what the peo-
ple of Nazareth found out when
Jesus came home. In Mark 6:1,
we are told that Jesus went to His


hometown and began to teach in
the synagogue, and many who
heard Him were amazed.
"Where did this man get
these things?" they asked.
"What's this wisdom that has
been given-
Him, and that -
He even does
miracles? Isn't
this the car-
penter? Isn't i
this Mary's
son and the
brother of
James,
Joseph, Judas, John
and Simon?" Hicks
Many took
offense. Jesus commented that
only in His hometown is a
prophet without honor. The King
James Version says bluntly, "He
could do no mighty work there
because of their unbelief."
This incident touches close to
home for those of us who are


church people.
It seems that the people who
knew the most about Jesus
expected the least and they got it!
They had a very small frying pan,
and it wasn't big enough for the
kinds of things Jesus could do.
Nazareth was the one place
Jesus went where they had to
settle for the natural and they
missed the supernatural. And
the scary part is that today we're
Nazareth. We Bible-believers
know a lot about Jesus, just like
His neighbors in Nazareth. We
analyze things just like they did.
If we are not careful, we can find
ourselves so close to Jesus and
so used to Jesus that we put Him
in a box, limiting Him to work
the ways that only seem practi-
cal and sensible to us.
Maybe our being "practical"
and "sensible" - our avoidance
of anything that might seem
"radical" or "different" - is why
so many Christians have limited


power. We don't pray for God-
sized interventions; we don't
make plans that are so big they
will fail if God isn't in them. We
go to Bible studies, church serv-
ices, and youth groups. We
argue theology, prophecy, and
spiritual gifts. We get involved in
a merry-go-round of Christian
activities, but we don't expect
the supernatural. And when we
don't expect the supernatural,
we become mired in the mud of
spiritual mediocrity.
In reality, the more we learn
about Jesus, the more we should
believe Him for. We serve and
we worship an awesome, all-
powerful Savior who is a mira-
cle-worker! We miss His mira-
cles when we don't believe Him
for miracles! If small is all you're
prepared for, then small is all
you'll get. It's time to get a bigger
frying pan and let the Lord fill it
with something bigger than we
ever dreamed!


Walking on water - not always impossible


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Walking on water was not a
big deal up north during the win-
ters. In one place where I lived,
each winter a group in the com-
munity would. ,
place a junk
car in the mid-
die of one the
lakes in town '
and wager on
the exact date
the car would
sink. I learned
a few inches of
ice could sup- Samuel S.
port quite a Thomas
weight and
you could easily "walk on
water" if you waited for a good
freeze. Fishing there was differ-
ent in the winters' you'd chop a
hole in the ice and drop a line
through. People actually built
cabins on the ice with their fish-
ing hole in the middle; fishing
with all of the comforts of home
except central heat!
It was during the "fourth
watch" in the night that Jesus
went walking on the water, only
it was not frozen. His disciples
had left him and sailed off,


apparently the water was rough
and the boat was buffeted by
waves (Matthew 14:24). They
were quite a distance from shore
and all of these things are
enough to get the attention of
any sailor. Then, Jesus decided
to join them and walks out to the
disciple's boat (vs. 36). Matthew
reports that they were "terrified."
That's sometimes the reaction to
anything we see and don't
understand; it can be scary...or
not scary depending on how we
look at it. Walking on water as it
happened in the Biblical story,
would surely get my attention;
but I might not be afraid and ask
"How is that done?".rather than
being upset by it. My daughter,
when she was growing up, had a
time when she was afraid of the
vacuum cleaner but she quickly
outgrew it. Our dog is sensitive
to some loud noises; she has
become conditioned to other
noises just as loud. It doesn't
seem to be how "strange" some-
thing might appear, but how
much of it is a part of our every-
day world. I suspect the disci-
ples, when they saw Jesus walk-
ing on the water, were "terrified"
because the sea was rough, the
waves were buffeting their boat,
they were far from shore, and


when they saw the Lord walking
on the water, this is one more
thing that shouldn't be happen-
ing and the already-fearful
moments add to the unnatural
event they saw.
I've noticed that people's
states of mind affect how they go
through "scary" times. People
who are looking forward to a
vacation enjoy the air trio more
than those who are facing diffi-
culties at the end of the flight.
People take operations better
when they know it will bring
relief from a long-standing ill-
ness rather than for something
that is not understood. We do
better with crises on the job after
a calm night at home instead of
coming in when there have been
difficulties the night before. The
"carry-over" plays a large role in
how we face unexpected things
and cause us to be afraid when
we would otherwise be curious,
be terrified when we simply
don't understand, have some-
thing get us down when other-
wise we would be able to take it
in our stride. Something hap-
pened at the conclusion of
Jesus' walking on water and
reaching the disciples. He invites
Peter to do the impossible; to
walk on water himself.


Matthew tells us that Peter
"got down out of the boat,
walked on the water, and came
toward Jesus (vs. 29)" It was
when he realized that he was
doing something out-of-the-
ordinary and when the wind
came up once more, that Peter
paniced. He is rescued, they
climbed into the boat and they
sailed on. It is when we realize
that we can do things too, even if
we don't understand it all, even
if it seems unnatural to us, even
if it may seem impossible, that
great things can happed. The
miracle? The miracle may be in
seeing something for what it is;
walking on water under natural
circumstances like freezing or
under unnatural-miraculous
ones. It may be in seeing what
happens in our lives that we
don't understand as opportuni-
ties to learn and grow instead of
coupling them with past fears or
disappointments. It may be in
looking for God's hand in what is
going on around us instead of
recoiling in fright. Good things
happen when we "cast off the
baggage" that holds us back and
take each thing as an opportuni-
ty and maybe even a potential
blessing with it.

get down to business.

Work with a banker who helps you get it done.
When it comes to financial matters, you have no patience for fast
talkers. You want experienced, local decision makers right across
the desk, and you want a response in a hurry.
Oh, and you also want convenient hours, handy locations and someone
who actually answers the phone. Seems perfectly reasonable to us.
Seems like you ought to come in to Seacoast.

Feel good about your bank
