Child dies under dirt mound


Dirt collapsed,
smothering
9-year-old

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
LABELLE- A 9-year-old
LaBelle boy died Jan. 29 after a
15-foot high mound of dirt he
was playing on collapsed on
him.
There are no signs of foul


play, officials with the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office said, and
the case remains an unexpect-
ed and "very tragic" death,
according to the report.
According to a police report
of the incident, the boy, 9-year-
old William Henry Brogdon,
seemed to have died of asphyxi-
ation when he was trapped
under the dirt.
In the moments before he
was found, family members
and neighbors tried desperately


to shovel dirt from the mound
after finding the boy's jacket
and shoes nearby.
Investigators said that earlier
in the day, while his father and
older brother were working in
the shop in the backyard of their
LaBelle home, the young boy
had asked to play with his
brother.
His father told him they
would be busy in the shop and
the boy left to play alone.
The boy's father could not

imagine what would happen
next.
After some time, more than
two hours later, and when he
noticed that the small boy had
gone missing, the father started
searching for him, worried that
he was nowhere to be found.
One of the family members
noticed that a mound of dirt,
around which the boy some-
times played, had collapsed.
They then saw William's
jacket and shoes next to the


mound. Fearing the worst, the
father ordered one of the boys
to grab some shovels from the
shop.
The boy's father and uncle
began digging to find the boy
and continued digging for more
than 30 minutes-before a neigh-
bor, seeing what was happen-
ing, offered to use his back hoe
to move the dirt quicker.

work to help



rural counties


By Patty Brant
LABELLE - Not many Leg-
islators in Tallahassee under-
stand the needs of rural inland
counties, so it's essential that
residents provide them with
the facts.
Florida Senator JD Alexan-
der of Lake Wales told a group
at a recent Farm Bureau
luncheon that, in addition to
their local legislators, they
must seek the support of
urban Legislators - they must
be made to see the larger pic-
'ture and how' rural counties fit
in to theit own welfare.
Sen. Alexander was joined
by Florida Rep. for District 77
Denise Grimsley as well as
aides for Florida Sen. Dave


Aaronberg and U.S. Senators
Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez
Feb. 1 at a luncheon hosted by
the Hendry-Glades Farm
Bureau at the Captain Hendry
House.
Sen. Alexander was center
stage for most of the event and
fielded questions like how
introducing more ethanol as an
alternate energy source might
affect Florida agriculture.
Sen. Alexander said balance
is needed. Ethanol from corn
provides only a 15 percent gain
in erieroL and is not cost effec-
tive, he noted. As it stands at
this time, the use of ethanol
would not help Florida eco-

A life in the circus,


a traveling troupe


For family, life
outside the circus
is no kind of life at all

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - When she
was younger, living in Mexico,
Asia, now 17, wanted to
become a psychologist.
Past generations of her fami-
ly had done something quite
different, and it had become
the custom to follow in the
footsteps of old grandfathers
and old grandmothers, great
great aunts and great great
uncles.
So she joined the circus.
Asia is known for her silks
act, a circus act using sheets of
silk tied with knots around


which the performer pulls off
elaborate moves while sus-
pended in the air.
She tours the world with her
family, who owns Anastini Cir-
cus.
At first, the friends she had
to explain the move to imag-
ined visions of clowns and gyp-
sies and freaks. Later, they were
simply sad to see her go, and
she was also unsure she want-
ed to go.
Since then Asia has toured
the world with her family, trav-
eling to the African, Asian and
European continents. The
entire immediate family on her
father's side, as well as the
entire immediate family on her
mother's side, works in the cir-
cus.
"I learned to love it," said

The Anastini family, made up of mothers and fathers, and daughters and sons, cousins and
uncles, was in Clewiston last week.

New members welcomed to GCWC


One of the very first organiza-
tions in Moore Haven, the
Glades County Woman's Club
(GCWC) members listened and
smiled as proud sponsors intro-
duced their new members at a
Tea Reception held at Candi
Snow's home on River Road in
Glades County during their
monthly meeting. Mrs. Snow has
a talent for making everyone feel
welcome, serving tea in antique
cups and saucers, cucumber
sandwiches, June Morn-
ingstar's famous cream cheese-
olive sandwiches and home-
baked sweets.
New Members include Kacie
Swafford, sponsored by Bette
Davis, Megan Shepherd, spon-
sored by Barbara Brown, Lela
Brown, sponsored by Waba Rec-
tor, Carol Butler sponsored by
June Morningstar.
The Glades County Woman's
Club members work year round
to raise funds for scholarships
given in May to two deserving
Moore Haven High School grad-
uates. Fundraisers include
preparing and serving food at
the annual Birding Festival, raf-
,fles of handmade items and their
annual style show.

Rear, Sponsors, Left to right, Bette Davis, Barbara Brown, Waba Rector, June Morningstar.


The club, over 75 years old,
used to own one of Moore
Haven's historic dwellings but
due to the deteriorating condi-
tion of the house, they sold it


several years ago and have been
meeting a member's homes and
at the library. There was much
discussion over meeting sites,
program agendas and increasing


the scholarship amounts.
If you are interested in joining
this venerable club, phone a
member for further information.
946-0520 or 946-0579.


Glades County Woman's Club style show


Thanks to the efforts of all the
members of the Glades County
Woman's Club and many good
friends and neighbors their
recent annual luncheon and style
show was a huge success. Hav-
ing outgrown the Ferris Davis
American Legion Hall, they were
given the use of Robin's Nest, an
RV park north of Moore Haven on
U.S. 27. Owned by the Robert
Joyner family, the park's club-


house was the perfect site for
Loire's Dress Shop of Lake Placid
to show off her fabulous fash-
ions. For some unknown rea-
sons, club members automatical-
ly become runway models when
clothed in the trendiest styles.
These delightful members
seemed born to stride down run-
ways and each just fit beautifully
in all of Loie's outfits whether for-
mal of elegant casual.


Covered dishes are the high-
light of the event with everyone
competing to see whose creative
salad disappeared first. The
luncheon rivaled any five star
restaurant and the table center-
pieces featured photos of our
Moore Haven High school senior
students. Proceeds from the show
help finance two scholarships for
local youngsters each year. Mem-
bers agreed that bringing in many


new and younger members has
helped spark new enthusiasm.
These new members include sev-
eral "snow birds" who always
have new experiences and ideas
to share. Anyone interested in
joining can call any GCWC mem-
ber for further information. Mean-
time, we'll see you at the Birding
Festival where we prepare and
serve tasty lunches. For more
information call 946-0520.

EMERGENCY PLANS: Last year during hurricane season we had
all these meetings by the Clewiston emergency team said they had
evacuation plans. At that meeting we asked, would the plan be
available to the public and the answer was yes. Several times I have
called asking for a copy of those plans, no plan. Nobody answered,
nobody responded. Is there a plan if something catastrophic hits
Clewiston or something happens to Clewiston? If there is one, and
the public has it, or is it a big secret like everything else is in this
town?


Letters to the Editor


Rebuttal to
FPL article
A recent "public service
announcement" appearing in
both the Caloosa Belle and Glades
Co. Democrat needs a response.
The article, entitled "FP&L says
Power Park to contribute to econo-
my" would have those of us who.
live in Glades or Hendry Counties
scarcely able to believe our good
fortune. What seems to glitter,
however, is not gold but coal with
all its attendant problems. A few
points to consider:
* Coal is by far the dirtiest
method by which to produce elec-
tricity. The proposed facility will be
a pulverized coal plant utilizing old
technology and will cause unnec-
essarily heavy pollution when com-
pared to newer available technolo-
gies. According to numerous
scientific publications, there are
several types of pulverized coal
plants, all of them unsatisfactory
from a health and environmental


standpoint.
* Given the generous relaxation
of EPA clean air standards in recent
years, what does FP&L's claim of
compliance really mean?
* What does FP&L's claim of
"state-of-the-art" mean when refer-
encing out of date technology. A
hundred year old buggy whip is still
a "state-of-the-art" buggy whip
even though long retired.
* FP&L is here in Glades and
Hendry Counties, only because
they were turned down in St. Lucie
Co. Why? A St. Lucie Co. commis-
sioner described FP&Es sales pres-
entation to them as a "deceitful dog
and pony show".
* What will be the public health
costs and who will bear them? Air
quality is already bad enough dur-
ing cane-burning season.
* What will be the environmen-
tal damage from acid rain, mercury
and other pollutants produced by a
plant next door to Lake Okee-
chobee and the headwaters of the
Everglades, an ecosystem already


in serious trouble?
* While we enjoy the pollution,
others will benefit from the power
produced.
* When carbon emission con-
trols are instituted (remember
global warming?), will FP&L's plant
already be grandfathered in?
* And what about all that tax
revenue? What will we do when
FP&L's plant depreciates and we
taxpayers have to carry more of the
burden?
Pulverized coal burning is old
technology. Where coal is to be
used it must be done responsibly
and has been (or should be)
replaced by plants using a gasifica-
tion technique. Here almost all pol-
lutants are removed up front by the
process which makes the coal into
a gas before burning. Carbon emis-
sions are more easily recovered
and can be stored for disposal. This
technology has been in use for
some time and is well tested and
reliable. There is such a plant near
Tampa, which has been operating


for the past 10 years. A plant costs
15-20 percent more to build so one
might understand why a power
company might favor a more pol-
luting plant. This cost can be recov-
ered, however, by doing it right the
first time, and eliminating the
expense of operating the less effi-
cient "scrubbers".
We would encourage everyone
to familiarize themselves with what
is at stake here. Our elected officials
need to balance both sides of the
ledger and not be seduced only by
the promise of more revenue. We
do not believe that this is the best
place for a power plant at all. But,
wherever it is built, FP&L's feet
should be held to the fire to respon-
sibly provide the best that technolo-
gy has to offer. And one parting
shot: As shareholders in FP&L we
are embarrassed that they have not
already stepped up to the plate to
do so.
Sincerely,
'Bruce G.Steinfeldt,D.V.M.
MichelleC. SteinfeldtRN.


IDLE TEACHERS: I'd like to make a complaint about these teach-
ers that are spending an awful lot of schoolwork time on the tele-
phone and doing personal work in class time. My son's teacher
doesn't have time for him because she's always on the phone and
she's always doing personal stuff. I think the principals need to
check on this and put a rope around this before it gets out of hand.

TROUBLE WITH HIGH SCHOOL: Are there any other parents
having trouble with the high school? I had to pull my daughter out
of high school. She was threatened by another student, they did
absolutely nothing to keep her safe. I've had to pull my daughter out
in order to home school to keep her safe. Is there anybody else out
there we can get together so we can put a stop to this? Now my
daughter's not going to get an education except for home schooling
which I don't know anything about, this is my first time.

CONFISCATED DRUG MONEY: What is done with the money
confiscated from drug dealers? Is that money put back into the
community adversely affected by drug sales?
Editor's note: In Florida, money and property confiscated from
drug sales - when it is no longer needed as evidence - is usually
put into the law! enforcement trust fund, and can be used by law
enforcement to make more drug arrests.

sen was four."
She was also pregnant with her
youngest daughter, Suzi.
Mrs. Greenleaf has been a
teacher for a total of 19 years,
becoming a teacher at age 34.
Before teaching she worked at a
bank, stayed home with her chil-
dren, was a substitute teacher and
did bookkeeping for her husband's
beekeeping company.
Before becoming a teacher, she
remembers fondly, "I began my
career in education as a parapro-
fessional with some of the greats,
namely Jan Gann, Annie Ruth
Howard and Mrs. Guthrie." At the
time she was a Girl Scout leader.
That was when teachers Jan Gann
and Sue Mundy Schaeffer, encour-
aged her to become a teacher.
Mrs. Greenleaf taught Kinder-
garten for one year, second grade
for three years, fourth grade for
three years, high school for one
year, third grade for eight years,
was a reading resource teacher for
one year and a reading coach for
two years.
She likes third grade the best,
she said, "because they're at a great
stage: They have a love of learning,
and yet they're becoming individ-
Sual learners and the curriculum is
great. They're at that point where
they still like school. They're inawe
of learning and have a refreshing,
attitude. I get to see those 'ah.ha'
moments every day in somebody."
Mrs. Greenleaf is involved in
Teaching After School, Curriculum
Mapping Committee, Accelerated
Reader Committee and Teachersas
Professional Education Readers
(Taper) Group.
.Her most memorable accom-
plishment in teaching is when she
started a book give away program
for Accelerated Reader at two
schools in which children are
rewarded for reaching their reading
goals by receiving a book to take
home. For some children, she says,
this may be one of the few books
they have to call their own.
Mrs. Greenleaf received her
Masters in reading from FGCU in
2004.
Her students are very excited
that she is the Golden Apple
Teacher of the Year. In his Letter to
Santa, one of her students wrote
that for Christmas he wanted her to
be teacher of the year for the dis-
trict, regional and state levels.
Her advice to new teachers
would be, "Don't be easily discour-
aged by paperwork and routines. If
you invest the time in the job it's
very rewarding. But it takes time: It
takes about 3-5 years for teaching
to become profitable, but I would
never do anything different."
Her favorite thing about teach-
ing is the enthusiasm that children
bring. The look in their eyes when
they finally get a concept is price-
less. Her least favorite thing is all the
paperwork to keep track of.
When asked how teaching
has changed over the years she
says, "Our expectations for chil-
dren are much higher than they
used to be. What used to be first
grade curriculum is now taught
to Kindergarteners."
Mrs. Greenleaf hopes to contin-
ue her education by getting her Mas-
ters as an Education Specialist or
her Doctorate degree in Education.
Teaching runs in the Greenleaf
family. Her husband, Mel, has been
teaching for 12 years. He currently
teaches Biology at LHS; eldest
daughter Kelle has been teaching,
for about three years and currently
teaches Band, French and Algebra
at LHS; Juli her second daughter has
been teaching about one year and
currently teaches ESE at UES; Aly-


sen, her third daughter is attending
the University of Florida for a major
in Public Health and a minor in Edu-
cation and youngest daughter Suzi
is a senior at LHS. Suzi will soon be
attending USF Honors College
where she will major in American
History and minor in Education.
After graduating she hopes to work
in a museum or become a teacher.
So, not only has Mrs. Greenleaf
taught others students, but has
raised teachers of her own that will
continue teaching in the future.
Also honored were those nomi-
nated for the District honor.
Laura Chambliss
Laura Chambliss has taught
eighth grade math at LMS for 25
years. She is involved in the Fellow-
ship of Christian Students, a Lead
Teacher, Peer Teacher and Math
Department Head. Her most mem-
orable accomplishment in teach-
ing was when she had a young
man in her Intensive Math class a
few years ago. He had scored a 1
on the Math section of his 7th grade
FCAT and his mother, who hap-
pened to be a former student of
hers, requested that she be his
math teacher. The two of them
worked diligently to get his math
skills up to grade level in class.
Their efforts, paired with the Math.
Lab, paid off. He scored a 3 on the
FCAT Math section. She said she
was blessed by the faith of the
young man's mother, who put her
son's math education in her hands,
and doubly blessed to see that her
faith in Mrs. Chambliss ability to
teach her son was validated.
Terry Crawford
Terry Crawford is a fifth grade
teacher at Eastside Elementary
School. He has been teaching for 20
years. He taught at Eckerd Youth
Alternatives and Eastside Elemen-
tary School. He is involved in the
After-school Math Program, a Fifth
Grade Lead Teacher and on the Sci-
ence Committee. His most memo-
rable accomplishment in teaching:
There are some students that would
do well if they just put them in a
room and threw in some books but
his greatest joy has repeated itself
several times over the past few
years. It's that student in his first year
that figures out, "I can do this" and
the light and joy on their face when
they figure this out!"
Heidi Dana
Heidi Dana has been a teacher
for 19 years. She has taught at Alva
Elementary and Country Oaks Ele-
mentary, where she is currently a
third grade teacher. She is involved
in the Writing Committee, DIBELS
Testing, United Streaming Team
Member, Turning Point Grant and
the Cowadunga Fundraising Com-
mittee. Her most memorable
accomplishment in teaching is
watching her students achieve and
overcome their learning difficulties
to succeed in life.
Dawn Gonzalez
Dawn Gonzalez has been a
teacher for 11 years. She has taught
at Eastside Elementary, Union Park
Elementary, Colin English Elemen-
tary, Gulf Elementary and Central
Elementary. She is currently a third
grade teacher at Central Elemen-
tary. She is involved in the Annual
Chili Bingo, Box Tops for Education
and Curriculum Development. Her
most memorable accomplishment
in teaching is when She made a
connection with a troubled student.
While he was in her class she'
worked with him by helping him to
make better choices and to work
through his anger to use self control.
He recently stopped her in the hall-
way to tell her that he wished he
could be in her class again so that
he could "do better in school and


not get in trouble." She felt that she
had been successful in reaching
someone who needed her help..
Deborah Larrimore
Deborah Larrimore has been a
teacher for 19 years. She has taught
at Glades Day, Rosenwood Ele-
mentary and Westside Elementary..
She is currently a fifth grade teacher
at Westside Elementary School.
She is involved in .Accelerated,
Reader Committee and Teach after
school program. Her most memo-
rable accomplishment in teaching
is when Westside became a full
inclusion school two years ago.
She taught, for the first time, a fifth
grade inclusion class. She had the
pleasure of teaching a student,
who throughout his education, had
been in a full time ESE classroom.
He was very introverted as well.
She had the pleasure of watching
him come out of his shell and con-
stantly respond to questions asked
during class instruction. He scored
a 5 on both the Math and Reading
portion of the FCAT.
Lenette Leyva
Lenette Leyva has been a Lan-
guage Arts teacher at Clewiston
Middle School for 5 '/2 years. She is
a SLIC Committee Representative.
Her most memorable accomplish-
ment in teaching: Once, she con-
vinced a student to overcome his
fear of rejection by his classmates
in order to work on a project that
he really wanted to do. Conquering
his fear gave him an air of confi-
dence that changed the rest of his'
year in her classroom. This con-
firms her belief that students' emo-
tional needs and validating Stu-
dents' feelings is integral to her
being an effective teacher.
Brenda Milligan
Brenda Milligan has been a
teacher for 24 years. She taught at
Bayou Lafourche Academy High
School, Portsmouth Elementary,
Ascension Catholic Middle, Brusly
Middle and LaBelle High School.

been so many memorable events
during her teaching career that she
cannot just name one. Every day
that she teaches there seem to be
challenges and opportunities for
her to make a difference in a stu-
dent's life. She said that one of the
most satisfying accomplishments is
when academically struggling stu-

Phil Stovall
Phil Stovall has been a teacher
for 39 years. He has taught at Knott
Middle, Wellman High, Aransas
Pass High, Aransas County High,
Flour Bluff High and Clewiston
High. He currently teaches World
History and American History at
Clewiston High School. He is part
of the Committee for Change and
supports events, concerts and
other- activities students are
involved in. His most memorable
accomplishment in teaching is
working with a young man named
John Allison. John was from a sin-
gle-parent family and John told him
that he became a father figure for
him. He said that Mr. Stovall
inspired him to become a jet pilot
because he was fascinated by the
model airplanes hanging from the
ceiling in Mr. Stovall's classroom.
They talked several times when
things weren't going well for the
boy. Mr. Stovall always told him to
never let anything take away his
dreams. The last time Mr. Stovall
saw John was in 1989 when he told
him that he had made flight school
for jets. Last year John's mom
called Mr. Stovall to let him know
that John had been named the lead
:pilot oon the Navv's Blue Angel
Demonstration Team. Mr. Stovall
said, "Now that's exciting!"
Sandra Taylor
Sandra Taylor has been a
teacher for 18 years at LaBelle Ele-
mentary School where she is a
fourth grade teacher. She is Co-
Chairman of the School Advisory
Council, a Lead Teacher, part of the
Curriculum, Committee, New
Teacher Induction Team and helps
with Project Graduation. She said,
"The nature of teaching is such that
you rarely see in the short term the
effects you have on your students in
the long term. Every student I have
taught has affected me in the long
term. It has either been in the vali-
dation of doing something "right"
that worked, or in the realization
that my best efforts may not have
been enough for that particular
child. It is those realizations that
cause me to continually seek per-
fectio n imy teaching through pro-
fessional growth. This is one rea-
son I sought National Board
Certification a few years ago. This
very rigorous process required
deep reflection into my teaching
style and content. Receiving
National Board Certification has
been my most memorable accom-
plishment in my career."

Circus
Continued From Page 1
Asia, sitting inside of a trailer with
her cousin, 15-year-old Chiara,
also a circus performer.
And what exactly is the differ-
ence between a normal life and a
circus life to Asia? It's very sim-
ple: There's a lot more working,
and there's a lot more traveling.
Circus life is never boring, the
girls said.
The family is home-schooled
and everyone pitches in to help
with setting up the tents and the
games at every new town they
visit. And it isn't unusual for the
family's to tour all year long, with
breaks only during Thanksgiving
and Christmas. In a normal year,
the group can visit hundreds of
individual towns throughout the
world.
According to Giovanni, the
patriarch of the show and Asia's
father, his family started doing
theatre shows in the 1800s,
before the advent of the circus
tent, and the tradition continued
to be handed down generation
after generation. Giovanni's own
children are generation eight.
The reason why it's easy for
his children to be drawn to the
circus is the same reason he was
drawn to the circus at a young
age: if nothing else, touring
together usually means the fami-


beans, 'baked cheese sandwich,
corn and fruited jello
Secondary
Thursday, Feb. 15: Chicken
sandwich, lettuce, tomato and
pickle, baked beans, pears diced
Friday, Feb. 16: Fish sandwich,
French fries
Monday, Feb. 19: NO School
Tuesday, Feb. 20: Nachos with
corn, tossed salad, orange juice,
and chocolate chip cookie
Wednesday, Feb. 21: Corn dog
nuggets, mashed potatoes, chicken
gravy, green beans, banana, biscuit


ly stays together.
Some of his cousins decided
not to pursue a career in the cir-
cus, but he never gave it a second
thought himself.
Giovanni remembers the first
time his own parents encour-
aged him to begin performing in
the circus. He was barely school-
aged when he first walked onto
the stage. The cheers from the
audience were positively addict-
ing to him.
Even now, much later in his
life, there are few things that
compare to the cheering of an
adoring audience when he pulls
off his more daring acrobatic
stunts, and the weeks of careful
practice and routine seem to pay
off all at once.
The circus is his life, he is
unafraid to say, and he met his
wife while the two performed for
a circus. His wife's own family
has been in the circus business
for six generations. The match
seemed drawn in Heaven.
The work isn't without its
drawbacks, and though the fami-
ly takes great care in ensuring
that all the acts are safe, the pos-
sibility remains that something
can go terribly wrong at a
moment's notice.
Chiara remembers her aunt.
While performing the silks act,
the pulley system holding the
slender column of silks gave way
and her aunt fell from several feet
up in the air to the ground. The

Joshua Paul Deese won the People's Choice Award at the
annual Thomas Alva Edison Science and Engineering and
Inventor's Fair recently in Fort Myers for his project, "Elec-
trolysis in the Presence of Sodium Chloride."

CMS student wins special

award at science fair


Clewiston Middle School stu-
dent Joshua Deese received a spe-
cial award at the Thomas Alva
Edison Regional Science Fair on
Jan. 27, at the Harborside Con-
vention Center in Ft. Myers for his
project entitled "Electrolysis in the
Presence of Sodium Chloride".
The seventh grader heard about
the Science Fair on the Discovery
Channel and was one of 14 final-
ists out of 850 who entered. He
received his award and the Peo-
ple's Choice Award for his con-


cise explanation of his project to
the public at a ceremony on Janu-
ary 31, at the Alico Arena at Flori-
da Gulf Coast University. Joshua
also received a $300 cash award,
a free subscription to Scientific
American and a two week sum-
mer research opportunity at Flori-
da Gulfcoast this summer. He was
also nominated for a chance to
participate in the Discovery Chan-
nel Young Scientists' Challenge.
CMS congratulates Joshua for
this outstanding honor.

impact immediately killed her.
The mother of two was only
32 years old.
Since then, Giovanni and all
family members who help in set-
ting up take extra precautions to.
keep the performers safe, includ-
ing his daughter Asia, who now
does the routine that killed her
aunt.
Giovanni considers some of
the injuries, including an injured
arm himself, to be a part of the
job, much as it is in any other
profession where care must be
given to stay safe.
The most important thing is to
scare fear away, or keep it tightly
clutched, and respect, a circus
performer must respect his craft
if he is to avoid getting seriously
hurt. The moment a performer
loses respect for what he's doing,
and he stops fearing, Giovanni
said, that's when the accidents
happen.
Still, as she prepared for the
act the next night, Asia, smiling
and then turning seriously at
being asked whether she ever
gets scared or remembers her
aunt, said, "I think about it every
time I do the act."
The support of her family,
though, makes even the danger-
ous manageable.
"We're a very close family,"
said Asia.

Students today have more school information


TALLAHASSEE - The Florida
Department of Education has
announced that students will now
be able to review the major areas
of interest to be available at the
high school they plan to attend. In
December, the Department of
Education approved a statewide
list of 442 major areas of interest.
School districts had until January
to choose which major areas to
offer at each high school. Next
year's ninth graders will be the
first to choose a major area of
interest as part of new graduation
requirements taking effect.
"I am excited that next year's
incoming high school students
will be the first to have the oppor-
tunity to choose an area that inter-
ests them," said Education Com-


missioner John Winn. "I have
been talking with eighth grade
students around Florida and they
are excited about studying areas
of interest to them."
Students will be able to select
their major area of interest
through Florida's online student
advising system, the Florida Acad-
emic Counseling and Tracking for
Students, or FACTS.org. Eighth
grade students can complete an
ePersonal Planner (ePEP), an
interactive course planner for
middle and high school students,
based on the major area of inter-
est and on their educational goals.
Students can locate the high
school they will attend and review
the major areas of interest that
will be available. Once enrolled, a


student may change his or her
major area of interest the follow-
ing year with no penalty.
"Students show no hesitation
about selecting an area of interest
because they know they are free
to change direction," continued
Commissioner Winn. "Our stu-
dents are more goal oriented than
we give them credit for."
Major areas are available for
students in high schools through-
out Florida, including students
with disabilities working toward a
special diploma, students
enrolled in career academies or
magnet programs, and students
in charter schools. Major areas of
interest include a wide array of
subjects, ranging from Account-
ing and Finance, Landscape


Architecture, Health Care, Televi-
sion Production and Computer
Systems as well as many in the
arts and vocational areas.
Graduation requirements for
students entering high school in
the 2007-08 school year include
earning 16 core academic credits
and eight elective credits in order
to graduate with a high school
diploma. Core requirements
consist of four credits each of
English and math, three credits
of social studies and science, one
credit of fine arts, and one credit
in physical education and health.
Out of the eight elective credits,
students choose a major area of
interest that includes four credits
in a common area, such as
sequential courses in a career


and technical program, fine and
performing arts, or academic
content area. The remaining for
credits are electives.
To view the list of high school


major areas of interest, visit

Coal is generating more and more interest in the energy industry due to the
development of highly efficient modern coal plants and the latest advance-
ments in pollution cofitrol technologies. I-ighly efficient means substantial-
ly less coal is used to produce the same amount of electricity and with fewer
emissions than older, traditional coal-fired power plants. Florida Power &
Light's goal is to meet reliably its customers' growing demand for electricity
in an environmentally responsible manner. To ensure that power is there
when it is needed and to protect against potential interruptions to the
state's natural gas supply due to hurricanes or other unforeseen events, FPL
has sought to diversify its fuel sources, focusing on abundant and lower cost
fuels such as coal.


not yet provide a highly reliable source of electricity. More significantly to
the local community, IGCC is not as efficient as USCPC meaning more
coal would be required to produce the same amount of electricity. And,
while IGCC would require substantial reengineering and rebuilding of the
plant to incorporate carbon capture and sequestration technologies when
they become commercially available, FPL's proposed plant design can be
readily modified to add emerging technologies.

When looking for a reliable, efficient and proven method for generating
electricity for its 4.4 million, customers - and growing - FPL chose
USCPC technology for a new power plant that's proposed for a location
near Moore Haven. FPL carefully considered all options available before


After an extensive evaluation of
modern coal technologies, FPL
determined that an advanced tech-
nology called ultra-supercritical
pulverized coal (USCPC) is the best
option to meet this need for reliable
power with environmental protec-
tion designed into the plant.
Ultra-supercritical refers to the
highest level of efficiency and will
set a new standard for coal genera-
tion in this country. This industry-

leading generation technology is being proposed for the FPL Glades Power
Park and will be coupled with an extensive array of advanced pollution
control technologies to minimize air emissions. The result is an advanced
technology coal plant design using an abundantly available resource that
provides a reliable supply of electricity to meet our future needs.

Another developing technology that uses coal to produce electricity is
called Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) technology. Unlike
the USCPC technology proposed for the FPL Glades Power Park, IGCC is
not yet a proven technology in the commercial size needed to meet our
customers' needs. IGCC is more expensive to build and operate and does


concluding that this technology is
the best choice to produce reliable
power for our customers. The pro-
posed FPL Glades Power Park will, in
fact, surpass the latest, stringent envi-
ronmental regulations with a wide
margin of environmental protection.

Power Park can visit our web page

CHS Wrestlers place second in District


On Friday Clewiston's 11 var-
sity wrestlers traveled to Golden
Gate High School for the first
qualifying tournament to get to
state. Placing in the top four at
Districts as an individual quali-
fies that wrestler to advance on
to the Region 3-IA at Palmetto
Ridge High School on Feb. 9 and
10. From there the top four from
the Region advance to the State
Finals in Lakeland on Feb. 15,
16, and 17.
In all, nine wrestlers from
Clewiston advanced on Friday.
At 103, freshman, Bryan
Bacallao placed third, defeating
Serge Rush of Naples by way of
pin in the first period of the con-
solation finals. At 125, sopho-
more Brandon Caulkins placed
third defeating an Immokalee
wrestler by decision. At 130
Jared Bacallao placed third for
Clewiston in a come from
behind victory over Naples. At
140 Joey Cordova placed second
losing to Palmetto Ridge's Richie
Denz, a returning state champ.
Arsenio Ramirez also placed
second losing to Palmetto
Ridge's Zach Mastro, also a
returning state champ. Damari-
an Allen came in at third defeat-

from Palmetto Ridge. At 215
Adam Trevino placed fourth, los-
ing to a Naples wrestler.
Clewiston High School can
add 189 pound Jamar Boykin to
its list of District Champions.
Boykin was at the top of his game
defeating eighth ranked in the
state Corey Carter of Golden Gate
High School 14-3. It was a domi-
nating effort by Boykin, who was
at his best for the tournament.
Clewiston had two weeks
with no scheduled competitions
to prepare physically and men-
tally for the districts. Facing off
against the #1 team in the state,
Palmetto Ridge, at districts


meant that all Clewiston's ath-
letes would have to be healthy
and at the peek of the physical
training. This paid off for the
Tigers on Friday. Placing second
behind Palmetto Ridge, Clewis-
ton came away with 123.5
points and was 19.5 points from
the third place Immokalee.
"This is a big achievement for
our team. I am really happy for
the kids like Jared Bacallao that


have been here for four years,
working hard and only seeing
individual accomplishments.
This is the best group I have had.
They have come together as a
team, supporting each other,
and that's what makes them
tough." says Coach Alford.

New X-Ray system unveiled Child


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter announced that it has acquired
a new X-Ray system that will help
the Radiologist perform both radi-
ography and fluoroscopy proce-
dures. The Precision"" 500D, with
its digital fluoroscopic capabilities,
was acquired from GE Healthcare
and will enable the Radiologist at
Hendry Regional to confidently
diagnose conditions in the chest,
spine, bone, digestive tract, uterus
and bladder.
The new system is a replace-
ment for the unit that was dam-
aged during Hurricane Wilma.
"Although the systems are simi-
lar, the newer technology pro-
duces a superior, quality image
and should help us to get through
a patient's exam much more
quickly than before," said Ed
Chiarelli, Imaging Services Direc-
tor at HRMC. "From broken bones
to digestive conditions, we can
address each patient's situation
with speed, ease and confidence.
The Precision 500D, with its digital
acquisition of images, allows our
physicians to easily perform a
broad array of general X-Ray pro-
cedures as well as the more
advanced fluoroscopy proce-
dures," explains Ed Chiarelli.
X-Ray is the most established
and commonly used form of med-
ical imaging. It is a fast and easy
way for a physician to view and
assess broken bones and it can also
be used to help physicians diag-
nose and monitor the progression

nomically, the senator said. Rep.
Grimsley said the use of sugar-
cane to produce ethanol is being
explored.
Questions from the crowd
included the legal responsibility of
employers for hiring illegal work-
ers. Rep. Grimsley agreed the
issue is difficult since it can be
very hard to know if a worker is
illegal. She said the law states that
you cannot "knowingly" hire ille-
gal residents.
Gulf Citrus Growers Associa-
tion Executive Director Ron Hamil
agreed that doing away with the,
greenbelt law would effectively
"kill" the farmer. Greenbelt laws
slow the conversion of inappro-
priate land to "less well thought
out uses," he said.
Some were concerned about
how a proposal to double home-
stead exemption from $25,000 to
$50,000 would impact the ability
of rural counties to operate. Sen.
Alexander responded that the
Legislature must be attentive to
small county needs. If their tax
base erodes, they will not be able
to meet basic services. The Legis-
lature needs to be aware that "it's
different in rural counties," he
said. He also noted that rural
counties need more than "pris-
ons, landfills and power plants"
for a healthy economy.
One attendee pointed out that
property taxes are unaffordable,

again enable the physician study

necessary. If your doctor has pre-
scribed a fluoroscopic examination

tives together.


and the Legislature should be
looking at alternate plans like tax-
ing the first $10,000 of property
value so all would pay their fair
share.
Sen. Alexander agreed that all
should pay some property taxes
but it's "hard to change what's
there." He said that the issue must
be discussed honestly and that it's
a challenge for rural counties to
provide basic services.
Glades County Commissioner
Donna Storter was concerned
about the portability of home-
stead exemption. It may make
sense to allow it in a move inside
the county, but not from a million

dollar home on coast to a county
like Glades.
Bryan Beer was concerned
about the inequities and competi-
tion from other . counties an
increased minimum wage can
bring about.
For Hugh English, it was the
amount of public lands being pur-
chased by the state for environ-
mental purposes. Sen. Alexander
said that most of those purchases
have been in this area and has the
effect of inhibiting the ability of
local government to serve the
community. He also noted that,
although some 30 percent of
Florida is now in public owner-
ship, there is broad support for
this program.
He said there is a need for state
land for purposes like storing and
purifying water.
Ron Hamil said the Federal
government must honor its Ever-
glades funding commitment. Sen.
Alexander agreed, saying he is
proud of what Florida has done to
solve real issues in the Everglades
to "keep Florida, Florida." He said
currently the state is working on
restoring the integrity of the
Hoover Dike around Lake Okee-
chobee, especially on the south
and east sides.
Farm Bureau Director of State
Legislative Affairs Ben Parks
addressed the organization's leg-
islative priorities for 2007. They
are:
* Expansion of agri-tourism in
Florida, which is the nation's top
tourist destination.
* Support of current Greenbelt
Tax Assessments on agricultural
property which taxes the value of
the production it supports rather
than its resale value.
* Energy Tax Relief - the Farm
Bureau will ask the Legislature to
expand the exemption for taxes
on electricity used for agricultural
production to non-residential
farm buildings and farm offices. It

nouncement.
A preliminary report found
the boy had died of asphyxiation
as a result of being buried under
approximately 30 inches of dirt,
which may have fallen when his
playing there stirred the mound.
An official autopsy, though, may
provide more information about
how the boy died.
The sheriff's office report
observed the shovels in the
ground from the family mem-
bers' attempts at finding the boy.
Several small toy cars could still
be seen near the mound that the
boy may have been playing with
before he died.
Officials say the death was an
accident.
"We have obtained word
from the Ft. Myers Medical
Examiner's Office and they indi-
cate that there is no sign of foul
play," said Sheriff Ronnie Lee.
"This was just a case of a very
tragic death."

exemption on pipe and other irri-
gation equipment, electrical, low
volume irrigation, building mate-
rials and fences.
In addition, Farm Bureau sup-
ports complete funding for the
University of Florida Institute of
Food, Agriculture and Sciences
(IFAS) and is watching such
issues as private property rights,
farm building code exemptions

culture.

President Bill Maddox noted that
together agriculture and environ-
mentalists can provide better
management and keep. agricul-
ture alive. "The House and Senate
understand, but we need other
agencies like water management
to understand, too," and added,
"Farm Bureau keeps rural con-
cerns in front of lawmakers. It's
not just an insurance company -
that is a benefit - but the main
thrust is lobbying. You don't need
to be a farmer to be a member."

Hendry County Speedway offers racing excitement


By Linda Sinkula
Special to INI Florida
Hendry County Speedway
brings racing excitement to the
South Lake Okeechobee area. Rac-
ing is already under way, and the
Grand Opening will be March 10.
Feb. 10 Race Results:
The Mini Stock Division was
an exiting 9 car feature. Jack
McClain in the #26 had a real
good night going in the early
stages. The lead would soon be
taken away by Mark Barlow In
the #4 car. Mark went on to
resist challenges from Pete
Jacobs in the J5 car. The race
was a battle all the way to the
last corner where Barlow slid a
little up the track giving one last
chance for a run on the bottom
to Jacobs. At the line Barlow
took the win.

6th #3 Devin Dellechiaie
7th #32 Sandy Wilcox
8th #57 Zach Perman
9th #75 Shal Ritenour
The Bomber Division was
even more exciting to watch. Thre
cars went at it, lap after lap for the
lead. It was a 15 lap race and #26


Steve Dielman had to fend off
both #12 EddieLawler and the
#8 of Ed Steinhoff every lap. Both
drivers were up along side of him
several times but it was dielman
with the win.

The Late Models were shown
the way around the track by #97
Justin Choquette. Justin had the
great handle on that car from the
time the track was soaked in the
beginning of practice to the last lap
of the feature on a blue groove
race track. Michael Cherry never
let him get too far away but could
not get a run on him for the lead.
Top three Late Models
1st #97 Justin Choquette

The Show we all were waiting
for was the Alied Mortgage Street
Stock Elimination. It was worth
the wait. The final feature of the
evening took the track before 10


p.m. and went pretty smoothly for
a 20 car field. 25 cars showed up
to compete and the top 6 out of
three heat races advanced to the
feature. I remember I was com-
menting on Jesse brown running
in 4th place in his heat going into
the last lap. It didn't look like he
was going to have a real good
starting spot for the feature. Not
giving up a bit he passed two cars
on the last lap finished second.
One of the other recent feature
winners # 1H Tommy Hill was not
as fortunate. His heat race earned
him a middle of the pack start and
it was not going to be his night.
Tommy left the track early. I
started seeing some smoke at the
end of the straights and he soon
pulled off the track. May have
been overheating due to some
contact he had made battling in
the middle of the field. I thought I
heard a pop just before he slowed
and pulled of the track. I hope it
wasn't a blown motor. With 18
cars secured in the field 5 cars
took battle just after intermission
for the last two transfer spots to
the feature. The lead was
exchanged between all drivers in
the eight lap dash.
The #26 David McCormack
got the top spot with #88 Bob
Cook coming in second.
This all set the stage for the 50
lap feature. with a stop halfway


for a splash of fuel. There was a
lot of bumping and banging as 20
cars tried to sort out there running
order. Although the drivers did an
awesome job lining up on the
restarts, there were some acci-
dents that put some cars on the
sidelines. #82 Rick Sterk had a
spin in Turn 2 and got slammed
hard head-on by #89 Greg
Crowe. Crowe's car, damaged
heavily, could not go on. Some-
how the #82 looked unharmed.
Later on, Sterk's car was also
unable to complete the race.
#38 Lenny Gorman was run-
ning top five all night but a poke
to his radiator had him running
about 240 he said. When the race
was red flagged for a blown
engine and resulting small fire
under the #59 car, driven by Joel
Goldfrank, Lenny had to shut the
motor down and could not retire.
This was just the first half of
the race. After the lap 23 caution
the call was made to stop the race
and refuel the cars. Jesse Brown
had found his way to the front of
the field and with only 11 cars left,
the second half of the race had
fewer cautions and Jesse held off
challenges from #64 Tim Powers.
A great lap after lap battle was
had by #32 Robert Vaugnhn and
the # 26 of David McCormack.

ify into the race by winning the B

Wrestlers grapple with three days of play


Thursday night Clewiston's
Wrestling Team took on Naples
High School in a home dual
meet. Starting at 103 for Clewis-
ton was Bryan Bacallao, at 125
was Brandon Caulkins, at 130
was Jared Bacallao, at 135 was
Mason Cole, at 140 was Joey
Cordova, at 145 for Arsenio
Ramirez, at 152 was Damarian
Allen, at 160 was James Cama-
ratta, at 171 was Alton Edmond,
at 189 was Jamar Boykin, at 215
was Adam Trevino, and at HWT
was Troy Kornya. Naples is a Dis-
trict opponent for Clewiston so
every match matters not only in
the dual but in the fight for posi-
tion at districts on February 2 at
Golden Gate High School. Catch-
ing big wins for Clewiston was
Brandon Caulkins, Joey Cordo-
va, Arsenio Ramirez, Damarian
Allen, Alton Edmond, and Adam
Trevino. Adam Trevino defeated
the #9 ranked Cameron Lloyd of
Naples in a close match up. The
final dual score was a close 38-
34 with Naples winning in the
last match of the night to take
the lead. Although Clewiston lost
by 4 points, they had to give
Naples 12 points for 112 lb and
119 lb weight classes that were
not filled.
Friday night Clewiston trav-
eled north to Live Oak, Florida to
take on Wakulla High School and
University Christian High School
in duals. Wakulla is a tough team
from the north and made for a
good match with Clewiston.
Clewiston, still forfeiting 12
points to Wakulla, put up a good
fight losing 44-33. Wins for
Clewiston came from Brandon
Caulkins, Joey Cordova, Arsenio
Ramirez, Damarian Allen, Alton
Edmond, and Troy Kornya. Uni-
versity Christian High School was
next for the Tigers. The Tigers
were ready defeating the Jack-
sonville team 51-12. Joey Cordo-
va of Clewiston defeated #7
ranked Craig Ruzzo of University
Christian 18-4.
Saturday was the individual
tournament. The #1 teams from
Alabama, Pratville High School,
and Texas, Copell High School,
were attending the tournament.
Other tough Florida teams that
were there were Suwannee,
Wakulla, Durant, and Lincoln. "It
seemed like there was at least 4
kids ranked in one state or the
other in each weight class," says
Coach Alford. This proved to be
Clewiston's biggest challenge this

wrestled a tough day and finished
out 4th, only losing to the Univer-

Letters of Intent
Three members of Clewiston's State Championship Finalist
team signed letters of intent last Wednesday for college
scholarships. John Melton (left) and Omar Smith (right) will
be attending Carson Newman College in Jefferson City,
Tenn. Johnny Jones (center) will be heading for Marshall
University in Huntington, W.Va. Tiger Head Coach Larry
Antonacci spoke at the signing ceremony and congratulated
the players for their accomplishments. Melton was a stand-
out as a wide receiver, defensive back and kick return spe-
cialist. Jones anchored one end of the Tiger defensive line
and Smith was a standout at cornerback and wide receiver.
Melton and Jones were named to the Class 2A All State
Team designated by the Florida Sportwriters Association.


pion from Alabama, Pratville by 4
points. At 189 Jamar Boykin
placed 4th for the Tigers losing to
the #1 ranked Suwannee
wrestler in the first round in a
very physical match up. Jamar
battled back to the consolation
finals to lose 0-1 to the #4 ranked
Alabama wrestler from Pratville.
At 215 Adam Trevino placed 3rd
wrestling an outstanding tourna-
ment defeating the Wakulla
wrestler that had beaten him the
night before. Placing 2nd for the
Tiger was senior Jared Bacallao.
Jared won in the 1st round in
overtime for the win against
Durant and defeated a very athlet-
ic competitor from Alabama in
the semi finals in a close match
that was 0-0 for the first 2 periods.
In the finals Jared lost a well
fought 5-2 match against the
Texasteam Copell.
Overall the Tigers finished 6th
at the tournament with Pratville
1st, Copell 2nd, Suwannee 3rd,
Durant 4th, Lincoln 5th, Clewis-
ton 6th, University Christian 7th ,
Wakulla 8th, and Middleburg 9th.

Love and the philosopher's stone

Someone has compared love to a If you work from the love of life and your physical body. If harmonies and Community Links. Individual Voices.

all it touches into gold.
In ancient times, the philoso-
pher's stone was widely sought but
never found. Alchemists searched
diligently for this unknown substance
which they believed would change
base metals into gold. But no one
ever discovered it and the philoso-
pher's stone became a myth.
Nothing in the realm of things has
the power to bring us true and lasting
riches, but love does have power to
transform the base metals of life into
gold of rich experiences.
Even the everyday chores of wash-
ing dishes or shoveling dirt can be
made easier, even enjoyable, when
they are done in love. If you are doing
a job for someone you love, the tools
seem lighter and the whole task
becomes a pleasure rather than a
chore. If you are doing some type of


Lt iUVC UI e J LUI1111" LU oveAo oppo 111Up ,
then all things will work with you to
bring a new joy and new satisfaction
into all that you do.
Love can transform experiences in
human relationships. Many persons
go through life expecting problems
and negative attitudes from others
and they are not disappointed. The
more they approach others with the
expectation of being cheated or mis-
treated in some way, the more often
they are able to point to their difficult
experiences and say, "See, I knew it
would happen!"
It isn't necessary to wait for others
to love first. When you project your
own love of good and God in every
man, the situation is changed instant-
ly. It may take a little time for the
transformation to be accomplished
in other ways, but the catalyst starts
to work the moment you begin to feel


UcIUlL 1es1cnve iae i eu youi uouy
seem a "base metal" that is a prob-
lem rather than an asset, try using
love to change your physical mecha-
nism into an asset of rich "gold."
First, love God, and then love
yourself as the expression of God.
Love your body as. His idea. Love
other persons in their divine poten-
tial. Love good. Love beauty. Love
harmony. Love health. Let love flow
through every thought and every act
as a healing balm, restoring and
renewing.
It isn't magic, but it works like
magic. The only true philosopher's
stone with built-in properties that can
change base metal into gold is the
love of God. And that love is God's gift
to you, to use in transforming the
experiences of your life into rich
adventures in loving.


Saint Valentine's Day - never too late


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Yesterday was Saint Valentine's
Day - or Valentine's Day. I hope you
didn't forget! Like many of our holi-
days, there is a religious connection.
Valentine was a
Christian priest ,: ' .*
who was impris-
oned during the - -
persecutions of the -' y w
Roman Emperor
Claudius II, being
put to death on the
14th of February in
the year 270.
Apparently, his Samuel S.
jailor's daughter Thomas
was kind to her
father's prisoners and before his
death Valentine wrote her a note of
kindness, signing it "from your Valen-
tine." From a long interweaving of
pagan traditions and Christian folk-
lore, we stand today with Valentine's
Day being among the most celebrat-
ed holidays in the world. I think what
stands out about the holiday with its
religious roots is that it speaks to
something very basic in human
beings and something very religious
at the same time. Now and again,
someone does something great; the
person is long since forgotten but
what was done lives on. Valentine's
Day is one of those times. In fact,
what Valentine did was to write a
note of kindness to someone who
was well integrated into the society of
those who would put him to death.


He was able to transcend the politics
of the time, overcome the normally-
understood feelings of hatred or at
least dislike of his persecutors, able to
stand above what was going on
around him and speak to the com-
mon human denominator - love. This
is the key to the reason he is associat-
ed with the day we remember loved
ones and why he is remembered with
it. Unselfish love is what the world
still craves and what people have
sought, will seek and what finally
heals and restores. Our lord was put
to the test by His detractors; a scribe
asks Him: "Which commandment is
first of all? (Mark 12:28)." The answer
is "You shall love the Lord your
God...(vs. 30). But Jesus went on:
"The second is this, 'You shall love
your neighbor as yourself' (vs. 31)"
and then added "there is no other
commandment greater than these."
Jesus used the plural, "these", mean-
ing both are the greatest. This was the
lesson and commandment that
Valentine took to heart even under
the worst of circumstances and even
when he knew death was before
him. What is worth noting about the
commandment and the actions of
Valentine is that there is a key of
unselfishness about it all. This is not
"getting the love 'you want" by
exploitation or manipulation, it is out-
pouring and self-sacrificing. Loving
ones' neighbor, and especially those
"neighbors" who have become spe-
cial in our lives and whom we take
into our lives as loved, means that
they are respected and treated for
what they are: God's creations and


those who bear His image to us. They
are not to be exploited, used, abused,
manipulated, demeaned. We love
our neighbors and those special ones
around us on whom we concentrate
our human love by respecting and
demanding respect in return. We see
others bearing the image of God; we
must also bear that image and we are
not to let others mistreat or abuse just
because they supposedly "love" us.
People have asked me about the ethi-
cal parts of loving relationships and I
ask in return, "Is the relationship one-
sided or do both share equally in the
work that makes the relationship
grow and live?" People need to ask
"Is there mutual satisfaction and joy,
or is only one partner growing and
the other is being stifled?" Martin
Buber wrote that we seem to love
things and use people when we
ought to use things and love people.
So many relationships come to an
end these days and no wonder! They
are built on faulty values, misunder-
standings about what "love" really is
and trying to make someone over in a
human image and not the image of
God planted in them. The Lord who
said we are to love our neighbors as
ourselves spoke to the sacredness of
others and of our self-respect; our
God-given dignity too. When we
honor each other and ourselves by
really loving them, we celebrate what
makes us full and complete, what
really satisfies us at our deepest
being. That's love. Now, the day after
the holiday, we might honor God and
each other by looking at God's love
and our response to it.

Blasphemy challenge -



your soul for a free DVD


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Over the centuries, people
have surrendered their souls for
a variety of reasons, but what I
just heard in the news makes my
heart cry. In
his film "The
God Who
Wasn't
There," Brian
Flemming
questions the
existence ofv
Jesus Christ,
arguing that
the biblical John
Jesus is a Hicks
myth, a legend
based on allegorical stories that
were never supposed to be seen
as historical accounts. It's a
provocative claim but not with-
out precedent. We've experi-
ence and overcome the "God is
dead" movement, "The Last
Temptation of Christ", and "The
DaVinci Code." I don't believe
this movie, which came out in
DVD on January 31, poses a
major threat in itself. There is
some concern about those who
don't have a strong biblical faith
and understanding, but the real
danger as I see it lies in their
marketing ploy and their focus
on reaching a young people.
They advertised, "Blasphemy
Challenge! Your soul is needed.
Do you have the cajones to
show the world how sure you
are that the Christian God does-
n't exist?
The Rational Response
Squad is giving away 1001 DVDs
of The God Who Wasn't There.
There's only one catch: We want
your soul. It's simple. You record
a short message damning your-
self to Hell, you upload it to


YouTube, and then we will send
you a free "The God Who Was-
n't There" DVD. It's that easy.
You may damn yourself to
Hell however you would like,
but somewhere in your video
you must say this phrase: "I deny
the Holy Spirit." Why? Because,
according to Mark 3:29 in the
Holy Bible, "Whoever blas-
phemes against the Holy Spirit
will never be forgiven; he is
guilty of an eternal sin." Jesus
will forgive you for just about
anything, but He won't forgive
you for denying the existence of
the Holy Spirit. Ever. This is a
one-way road you're taking
here.
During December and Janu-
ary, nearly 1,000 youth and
young adults responded to chal-
lenge. By accepting the chal-
lenge, participants supposedly
are showing others that there is
nothing to fear from God,
because he doesn't exist.
Sounds similar to the line of the
"father of lies" in Genesis 4-5,
"You will not surely die," the ser-
pent said to the woman. "For
God knows that when you eat of
it your eyes will be opened, and
you will be like God..."
If they are wrong, they have
supposedly consigned them-
selves to an eternity in hell
because they have committed
the unpardonable sin. That's a
high price to pay for a $25 video
and a few moments of fame on
YouTube.
Actually, the term "unpardon-
able sin" does not appear in the
Bible. The biblical lines that
have given rise to the notion of
an unpardonable sin actually
appear in three of the gospels:
Mark 3:28-29, Matthew 12:31-32
and Luke 12:10. In context,


Jesus is saying that His oppo-
nents were attributing the heal-
ing work of God to Satan. If they
will not acknowledge God, there
is no way they can avail them-
selves of God's forgiveness.
The work of the Holy Spirit is
to reveal God's truth to us and to
convict us of our sins. Thus, the
only way to blaspheme against
the Holy Spirit is to reject what
the Spirit reveals to us, to refuse
the conviction and deny God's
truth. Thus we do not repent, for
we think we have nothing to
repent of. And if we will not
repent, we cannot be forgiven.
And if we persist in that way
long enough, we eventually lose
the ability to hear the Spirit or
perceive the need to seek for-
giveness.
In other words, it is our
unwillingness to repent that
makes a sin unpardonable, not
God's unwillingness to forgive
us.
In John 6:37, Jesus states,
"anyone who comes to me I will
never drive away." (For context,
read 6:35-40.)
With those words, Jesus said
that He would welcome anyone
who came to Him. Anyone. No
exceptions, if only they will
come.
The irony is that all those
who have gone online to "deny
the Holy Spirit" through the Blas-
phemy Challenge have only to
listen to the prompting of that
Spirit within, turn to Christ and
be forgiven. If they do that, even
their denial of the Spirit will be
forgiven. That's what I'm pray-
ing for. The salvation God offers
through Jesus is complete.
Nothing is left unpardoned.

a few things must be ruled out. It is
important to have a recent work
up done for Jza Jza to make sure
there are no underlying reasons for
this new problem.
As a dog gets older sometimes
the kidneys can have problems
which may cause symptoms such
as drinking a lot and urinating a lot.
Also, kidneys may have trouble fil-
tering well' and their efficiency may
be compromised. Sometimes
these problems will show up as
incontinence. Having routine
blood chemistries run can deter-
mine how the organs are function-
ing. A urinalysis would be helpful
too. This can determine if there is a
urinary tract infection or a kidney
filtering problem. Many times if the
kidney problem is addressed, then
the incontinence can be mini-


mized. Changing Jza Jza's food to
a higher quality lower quantity
protein diet may be helpful as well.
- If in fact it is determined that the
incontinence is true, then there are
several choices for therapy. Some
of the incontinence medications
have other side effects, so it is ben-
eficial to determine which is the
lesser of two evils.
Belinda, start off by making an
appointment with your veterinari-
an to discuss these options. The
sooner the better, so you can
address any potential serious
problems ASAP.
Keep me posted. Take care,
