'Miracle son' enjoys birthday


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Another year
has past and Joyce Ervin gives
thanks to God for her son to be
alive.
Brian Ervin turns eight this
-year, and he's defied the odds to
make one very special lady very
happy to wake up each morning
to see his face anew again.
Ms. Ervin adopted Brian when
he was born, after his birthmoth-
er, a young, healthy girl without a


place to live and no job turned to
her for help. More than anything,
she wanted to find a good home
for her child and knew she could-
n't provide for him the same as an
adoptive parent.
"She was told at the hospital
when, Brian was born that his
cerebral palsy and down syn-
drome was due to her twenty-first
chromosome falling off during
her pregnancy," said Ms. Ervin.
"She never did drugs or drank
alcohol," added Joyce "He was
naturally born this way, and thank


the Lord he is.still here with us
today."
Brian receives treatment and
physical therapy weekly. Terry
Stockings with the Ft. Myers Elks
Lodge is one of his therapists. She
visits him often. Sheryl Byers, an
ESE student at Clewiston Middle
School visits him, too, twice a
week for developmental therapy.
Ms. Ervin seems to think that
she owes a lot of her son's
progress to the two.
"I thank those two ladies for
their help in getting Brian to


where he is now," said Joyce,
"you couldn't ask for more loving
and caring people than those two,
and I thank them for that."
Ms. Ervin's present situation
started ever since her children
grew up and left home.
"I always wanted to have kids,
ever since I can remember, and
once I was able to hold them in
my waist, I was up and down with
them," remembered Ms. Ervin.
"The great Lord gave me four
beautiful kids of my own two
boys and two girls, and two that I


adopted one boy and one girl, but
once they were grown ... I want-
ed to have more," she smiled.
That's when Brian came into
her life.
The two are inseparable now.
"Brian loves John Deer trac-
tors," said Ms. Ervin. "I just bought
him a wooden-built one, painting
it myself in the John Deer colors
for his birthday."
She hasn't for a moment
doubted her decision to adopt the

HOSPITAL PRAISED: Hendry Regional Medical Center of Clewiston
did a great job! Our local resident Pedro Diaz, of Clewiston, Owner and
Operator of Diaz Asphalting was treated in the emergency room of our
small town hospital. The fast work of the hospital and the surgical
team, with Dr. Carol, removed his appendix just in time.
Out thanks go out to Dr, Carol and his staff as well as the emergency
room staff. What a great job. Mr. Diaz was able to leave the hospital 24
hours after surgery. This is a wonderful thing. Less than two weeks
after Mr. Diaz had his appendix removed, another local resident, now
living in Wellington, was in the same condition and was taken to
another hospital.
In this larger and "updated" hospital this patient was left for 12
hours before the surgery began. At this point, leakage of the Appendix
had started and the patient was admitted for three days to treat the
infection.
Again, our thanks go out to our small home town hospital, Dr. Carol
and his staff, you were all wonderful!

April 27, has been announced
as the last day families and individu-
als living in FEMA trailers must be
out. FEMA representatives have
stated several times there will be no
extension given to Hurricane
Wilma victims. The amount of
damage was not as great as with
other hurricanes in the past.
To date, approximately 150
families and individuals are still
residing in temporary housing
being provided by FEMA. Many
have homes that are being
repaired and some still needing
to be repaired as funds are avail-
able. Some residents were
renters or homeowners on rent-


ed lots.
FEMA has made the selling
program available and the price
of the home to the tenant is
determined by many factors. If a
family can afford to purchase,
some may continue to reside in
campers until their homes are
completed or replace mobile
homes on their land.
The rental population is quite
different as Wilma destroyed
owned mobile homes on rented
lots and rental properties. Add
the recent selling boom that left
even more rental properties
being sold to individual home-
owners. We have a vast deficit of
rental lots for mobiles, RV's and
residential rentals.
Remember, these are families
that will be leaving FEMA assis-
tance and need to rent lots with
their own purchased RV or'
mobile home or rent housing for
residence. They will not be
receiving any further payments
from FEMA. Your help with this
is greatly needed. Thank You.

State approves two new bachelor programs


FORT MYERS - Edison College
received approval from the Florida
Board of Education for two new
bachelor degree programs in sec-
ondary education. Edison officials
worked closely with local educa-
tion leaders to respond to a critical
need in the community.
In June 2006, Edison College
President Dr. Kenneth Walker host-
ed a meeting of the region's public
school superintendents, who iden-
tified a growing need for teachers,
especially in the critical subject
areas of science and mathematics.
The consensus among the group
was that secondary education pro-
grams at Edison would offer new
options to local students who
would like to pursue the field of
education and also meet the needs
of the largest employers in south-
west Florida-the school districts.
"The mission of Edison College
is to meet the needs of the commu-
nity and to provide access to any-
one who wants a college educa-


tion," said Edison District President
Dr. Kenneth Walker. "There are
many students who need a bac-
calaureate degree but can't attend
a university. Edison College is
among numerous community col-
leges that have reinvented them-
selves to become four-year, open
door colleges in order to meet the
demands of their communities and
a globally-competitive environ-
ment in the 21st century."
Edison College students will
soon be able to earn a four-year
bachelor's of science in secondary
education in either mathematics
for grades 6-12 or biology for
grades 6-12.
Administrators from Edison
and Florida Gulf Coast University
worked closely together in devel-
oping the new programs. Stu-
dents will actually take three
upper-division classes from FGCU
in order to complete the degree.
Edison's District Vice President of
Academic Affairs, Dr. Noreen


Thomas, says the process was a
very collaborative one.
"Rather than duplicate courses,
we built on the strengths of each
institution and combined them to'
achieve the best possible outcome
for the student," says Dr. Thomas.
She and her counterparts at FGCU
began working together on this ini-
tiative last summer, because every-
one involved wanted to do more to.
"grow our own" teachers in south-
west Florida.
Edison submitted its applica-
tion for the baccalaureate
degrees to the state in August
2006. After nine national review-
ers evaluated the application, the
staff for the Board of Education
recommended approval on Jan.
22, and the board approved the
measure at a hearing today in Tal-
lahassee. The school currently
offers a baccalaureate degree in
Public Safety Management,
approved by the state in 2005.
Edison now begins the process


of schedule planning and of
adding faculty who will teach the
new upper-division courses for
the bachelor's degrees. In addi-
tion, student advisors will begin
working with first and second year
students who want a bachelor's
degree in secondary education.
They will advise the students on
the correct classes to take in the
first two years to ensure the stu-
dents move easily into the bache-
lor's degree program.
The first upper-division classes
for the new bachelor's degrees
should be offered in the Fall 2008
semester. If current students attend
school full-time to earn a bache-
lor's degree, the first. secondary
education bachelor's degrees
could be awarded in 2010.
Anyone who would like more
information on Edison College's
baccalaureate programs should
contact Dr. Roger Bober, District
Dean of Baccalaureate and Univer-
sity Programs, at (239) 489-9295.

Lock inspection to interrupt


boat traffic near Clewiston


FORT MYERS -'The South
Florida Water Management District
(SFWMD) reports that the S-310
navigation lock at Clewiston will
be taken out of service intermit-
tently between March 21 and 22,
for a routine safety inspection. The
inspection will require divers to be
in the water for up to two hours at
a time. To protect the divers, no
boat traffic can be allowed
through the navigation lock while


the divers are in the water.
Should any safety issues be
identified during the inspection,
it may become necessary to
close the S-310 navigation lock
completely while repairs are
made. Should this happen, the
SFWMD will notify boaters and
business owners dependent on
this navigation lock.
The S-310 structure, located
in the Herbert Hoover Dike in


Clewiston, allows boat passage
between Lake Okeechobee and
the Industrial Canal. Originally
constructed in 1933 as part of a
hurricane gate structure, S-310
was modified into a navigation
lock in 1981.
Questions from the public
regarding the lock closing should
be directed to the SFWMD Okee-
chobee Service Center at (863)
462-5260 or (800) 250-4200.

U.S. Sugar holds successful job fair for Bryant workers


CLEWISTON - U.S. Sugar held
a two-day job fair at the Pahokee
Community Center last week for
workers impacted by the upcom-
ing closure of its Bryant Sugar Mill
following the conclusion of this
sugarcane harvesting and process-
ing season. State, county and local
businesses participated in the job
fair, representing several hundred
available positions in a diverse geo-
graphic area.
Although the Bryant Mill is
expected to run until mid-April, the
job fair was held to allow the facto-
ry's employees to get a head start
on finding new jobs. Nearly 70
employees attended the job fair.
According to Human Resources
Manager, Cathy Ruediger, "Bryant
employees bring a multitude of
marketable skills and job expertise
to area employers. In addition to
sugar specialists like mill operators,
sugar boilers, boiler operators,
power plant operators and techni-
cians, there are engineers,
mechanics, instrument mechanics,
machinists, electrician, welders,
heavy machine operators, truck
drivers, chemists, clerical and a
wide range of highly motivated
men and women with agricultural
and industrial experience."
U.S. Sugar hired 'Right Manage-
ment, the world's largest organiza-
tional consulting and outplace-
ment firm, to assist its Bryant
employees' transition to new jobs.
Right Management conducted a
five week career center in Pahokee
for interested workers that included
group workshops on resumes, job
applications, interview process and
skills, networking and marketing

nity College, Palm Beach County, ice that U.S. Sugar has provided by


giving local businesses the oppor-
tunity to find so many skilled indi-
viduals in one place," said Ashley
Tripp, of Tripp Electric Motors.
In addition to job postings, the
job fair also provided an opportuni-
ty for the Bryant employees to learn
about the services and training
available locally. Palm Beach Com-
munity College had a table with
information on different courses
and scholarships available. The
local Workforce Alliance explained
a variety of services available
including funding for dislocated
workers, job search help, career
change programs, networking
opportunities and job training in
computers, CDL (Commercial Dri-
ver's License), heavy equipment
operators, nursing and other fields.
Bryant employees who partici-
pated in the career center and job
fair were appreciative of the oppor-
tunities U.S. Sugar is providing to
help secure future employment.
One of the first to enter the job
fair was Sydney Slydell, a produc-
tion maintenance worker who
was born and raised in Pahokee.
He took advantage of the resume
building, interview skills and job
fair training offered by Right
Management.
"I am still a little nervous, but I
have some options now," said
Mr. Slydell. He was particularly
interested in the positions avail-
able at Stewart Mining. "Life goes
on," he said.
In November 2004, U.S. Sugar
announced plans to modernize,
consolidate and automate its sugar
processing facilities in Clewiston
and close its smaller Bryant Mill.


With state-of-the-art and highly
automated equipment, the 42,000
tons-per day facility is currently in
the final stages of construction, and
when completed, will be among
the largest in the world.
"In order to successfully com-
pete in a changing sugar market
with increased foreign sugar
imports as a result of NAFTA,
CAFTA and other trade agree-
ments, we are automating our facil-
ities to lower our costs," said Bob
Buker, President and CEO.


"Unfortunately, one of the con-
sequences of increased global
trade, automation and new tech-
nology will be the loss several hun-
dred jobs in our sugar processing
operations," Mr. Buker said.
Scheduled to be in full opera-
tion in October, 2007, U.S. Sugar's
modernized sugar processing facil-
ity will be completely integrated
with its refining operations at the
Clewiston site. The Bryant Mill facil-
ity, built in 1962, is scheduled to
close in late spring of 2007.

School Happenings


Central Elementary
FCATis ongoing!
The Central Elementary third,
fourth, and fifth grade students
began testing on Monday, Feb. 26,
and testing will continue through
Friday, March 9. The students,
teachers and staff are all working
very hard, and the students are try-
ing their best to achieve a good
score. If you can be sure your child
has a good nights sleep and a good
breakfast every morning, this will
help him or her do their best every
day in school. Thank you for your
support!
Spring Break/Early Release: Fri-
day, March 16 will be an early
release day for the students, and a
teacher workday. Spring break will
be the following week, with the
students, teachers, and staff return-
ing to school on Monday, March 26.
Report Cards
Tuesday, March 13, is the end of
the grading period for the first nine
weeks of the second semester.
Report cards will be sent home on
Monday, March 26, when students,
teachers, and staff return from
Spring Break.
Movie Night - Friday, March 30!
Please save this date on your
calendar for our next movie night.
We will be showing the movie
"Happy Feet." The movie is open to
all families and students in our
area. Please contact the school at
(863) 983-1550, or stop by the
school's office, if you are interested
in attending, and purchasing tickets
for the movie. A student must be
accompanied by a parent,
guardian, or adult relative.
Eastside Elementary
Eastside's second graders have
been exploring learning in a new
and interesting way. Mrs. Dierks,
Mrs. Harris, and Mrs. Way have met
collaboratively for the past four

of the Desert".
Through this collaborative effort
the teachers and students valued
the media center as a warehouse of
instructional materials that made
the desert come alive. The teachers
used books, educational videos,
nature magazines, and on-line
resources, all located in the media
center. During this unit, students
were allowed to checkout books
and materials from the media cen-
ter before school, throughout the
day, and after school, which helped
them achieve their Accelerated
Reader goals.
Students were allowed to go on-
line to explore on-line resources.
For example, they went to "Google
Earth" and traveled from our
school to the deserts in the south-
western parts of the United States.
Desert activities were extended
between the classroom and the
media center like a swinging door.
Some of the activities included in
this unit were: Students designed
their own postcards depicting their
travels to the desert. They wrote
personal biographies and created
desert sunsets out of chalk, after
discussing the biography of Geor-
gia O'Keefe, a famous artist who
painted desert scenes using cow
bones. Students made desert poet-
ry books and constructed a desert
three-fold board and diorama,
which they will unveil at the Clewis-
ton Public Library in March.
The collaborative team wanted
the students to have first hand
experiences so they extended the
curriculum by including communi-
ty resources.
Mrs. Reynolds brought her Ball
Python to the media center. She
shared interesting facts about her
snake, which intrigued students to
ask numerous questions. After the
presentation, students did an
activity to compare the Ball
Python with the poisonous rat-
tlesnakes of the desert.
The students experienced Geor-
gia O'Keefe's travels to museums

the students saw a historical movie
about our town. They also enjoyed
the display of the 14 foot alligator.
Students in grades third - fifth
have been working very hard on the
FCAT for the past two weeks. We
are very proud of all of them, and
know that they are glad that the test-
ing is over. They all worked very
hard, and we know they did great!
Spring Break is approaching
quickly. Students will be out for
Spring Break March 19 - March 23.
We hope everyone has a week full
of relaxation; you deserve it!
Students will have a half-day on
March. 16th. No lunch will be
served that day. Dismissal time will
beat 11:15a.m.
There will be a SAC meeting on
Tuesday, March 13, at 6 p.m. We
hope to see you there!
Third grade students are getting
all geared up for their annual field
trip to Sea World. The trip is
planned for April 19. If your child is
in 3rd grade, he/she should have
brought home a letter last week
regarding Sea World. If you haven't
received the letter, please contact
Miss Escobar at the school. There
are a few deadlines with this trip, so
make sure all information is turned
in on time.
Fourth grade is preparing for
their field trip to Cypress Gardens.
They will be going to Cypress Gar-
dens on April 5. The final payment
is due this month, and your child
should have brought home a final
reminder. If you have not received
this form, or you have any ques-
tions concerning the trip, please
contact Mrs. Durance at the school.
Eastside would like to congratu-

Thank You from the

Warren L. Brown Family


How can we really say thank you for all the outpouring of love, food, cards
and support with which we were blessed at the passing of our husband, father, PaPa
brother and uncle, Warren L. Brown. We were overwhelmed by our family and friends in
the community and from places near and far who came to offer their comfort and
memories for this man who was so loved by all of us. Please know how much our
hearts were touched and how much we appreciate everything that was done. We hope
that the following will somehow give you an idea of the gratitude we feel and the man
that we loved (and still do):
We Thank You
"Thank You" seems such an inadequate phrase
To tell you how we really feel
For all of the wonderful things that you did
From your thoughts to your prayers to the meals
For all who took time to come visit
For all who wrote letters and cards
For all who came to the services
Who gave comfort in times so hard
For all who sent beautiful flowers and plants
To remind us how much you cared
For those who came from so far away
For stories that with us you shared
We will hold in our hearts and remember the thoughts
That you took precious time to convey
We "Thank You" and hope that somehow these words
Will express how we feel in some way.

PALM BEACH - The Palm
Beach County Art Teachers Associ-
ation coordinated with the South
Florida Fair to exhibit artwork creat-
ed by students in the classroom.
This Student K-12 Art Exhibition
demonstrated to the public the
quality and scope of our school art
programs in Palm Beach County.
The South Florida Fair awarded
prizes which included ribbons, cer-
tificates and two complimentary
fair tickets for each participating
student and teacher.
The South Florida Fair supplied
each participating school with the
basic materials to participate in the
Fair School Art project. Each school
received a crown to decorate. Each
crown was voted on by the fairgo-
ers and cash awards were given to
elementary, middle and high
schools. The prizes included: three-
$200 awards, three-$100 awards,
three-$50 awards and overall win-
ner cash award of $300.
The exhibit at South Florida Fair
exposes people in the community
to the artwork students are doing in
the classroom and awards art
teachers with extra funding to help
pay for art supplies. We need to
give thanks to Vicki Chouris, Lisa
Dubbing from the South Florida
Fair and Lee Glaze, Bak MSOA Mag-
net Coordinator for organizing the
exhibit.
The winners selected by the Art

Public Service

Commission

marks benefits
TALLAHASSEE - The Florida
Public Service Commission (PSC)
marked the benefits of energy
conservation and demand-side
management programs in its
annual report (Report) on activi-
ties related to the Florida Energy
Efficiency and Conservation Act
(FEECA). The PSC sets energy
savings goals for the seven elec-
tric utilities subject to FEECA and
the Report, delivered to the Gov-
ernor and the Legislature,
describes the utilities' efforts.
The PSC reviews demand-side
management goals for the utili-
ties at least once every five years
and each utility files its plans for
. meeting those objectives with
the Commission. A variety of pro-
grams for residential and com-
mercial customers include
incentives for conducting energy -
audits, installing energy-efficient
equipment, and reducing electri-
cal consumption during peak
periods. Since 1980, these
demand-side management pro-
grams have reduced the state's
summer peak electrical demand
by nearly 5,000 megawatts (MW)
and winter peak demand by
more than 5,500 MW By con-
serving energy, Floridians have
deferred the need for building
ten 500 MW power plants, the
equivalent of enough electricity
for 1.6 million households.
The PSC has recently
approved several new and
revised conservation programs
sponsored by the utilities. By
using these programs, con-
sumers are expected to reduce
summer and winter peak
demand by an additional 798 and
861 MW, respectively, by 2015.
"By conserving energy and
generating electricity with renew-
ables, we can reduce our depend-
ence on oil and natural gas," said
PSC Chairman Lisa Polak Edgar.
The Report shows that 1,100
MW of electricity came from
renewable sources (municipal
solid waste, biomass, hydropow-
er, and landfill gas) last year.
The PSC is committed to mak-
ing sure that Florida's consumers
receive their electric, natural gas,
telephone, water, and wastewater
services in a safe, affordable, and
reliable manner. The PSC exercis-
es regulatory authority over utili-
ties in the areas of rate base/eco-
nomic regulation; competitive
market oversight; and monitoring
of safety, reliability, and service.

speed, ease and confidence.
In addition, HRMC offers MRI
services every Wednesday. MRIs
can greatly assist your doctor in
detecting and diagnosing diseases
and other problems in their early
stages by creating detailed images
of internal bodily structures.
The newest state-of-the-art
equipment that Hendry Regional
Medical Center has acquired is the
Mortara X-Scribe II Cardiac Stress
Testing System and X12+ wireless
telemetry.
The Caradio-Pulmonary
Department (sometimes refer-
enced as Respiratory Therapy
Department) is excited about the
advantages the equipment offers to
its patient and the physician.

Antibiotic resistance is a serious threat to all


By Rebekah Bernard, MD
"I started getting a scratchy
throat this morning," a patient
told me this morning. "Last time
this happened my doctor gave
me an antibiotic that knocked it
right out." Later on that day,
another patient told me, "I've
been taking my mother's left-
over penicillin for a sinus infec-
tion." Still another patient told
me that she was taking a Mexi-
can antibiotic that she got at a
local store. Although they don't
realize it, these three patients are
contributing to a very serious
crisis in medicine: the develop-
ment of super-strong bacteria
that are resistant to available
antibiotics.
Antibiotics were introduced
during the 1940's, and have


helped to save the lives of many
people with serious bacterial
infections. Unfortunately, many
bacteria have
learned to
change in
order to pre-
vent being
destroyed by
antibiotics.
This mutation
is known as
"antibiotic Rebekah
resistance." If Rena
we do not stop Bernard
this problem, our society faces a
future of increased illness and
death from these powerful
mutated bacteria.
To prevent antibiotic resist-
ance, follow these recommen-
dations:
* Antibiotics should only be


prescribed by a trained health
care professional. Doctors
spend many years in school to
learn when antibiotics are nec-
essary, and what antibiotic is
most useful for a specific infec-
tion. It is a very bad idea to get
antibiotics from a friend, rela-
tive, or local store. In the United
States, it is illegal to sell antibi-
otics without a prescription.
However, in other countries like
Mexico, many medicines are
available over-the-counter.
Sometimes these medicines are
brought into the United States
and sold at small shops. Not
only can this contribute to
antibiotic resistance, but it could
be dangerous to your health, as
many antibiotics have serious
side effects.
* Antibiotics should only be
prescribed for definite bacterial


infections. Antibiotics do not
help viral infections, such as the
common cold or the flu. These
illnesses will generally get better
by themselves within a few days
to a week. Your doctor may rec-
ommend medicines to treat the
symptoms of these viruses, such
as pain relievers, cough syrups,
and decongestants. The best
treatment for viral infections is
plenty of rest, fluids, and avoid-
ance of cigarette smoke.
* If antibiotics are pre-
scribed, take every pill until the
bottle is empty. It is difficult for
many people to finish their dose
of antibiotics, because they usu-
ally feel better before the antibi-
otics are completed. However,
not finishing the medicine can
allow any remaining bacteria to
become stronger and develop
resistance in the future.


* Prevent infections before
they start. One of the best ways
to prevent infection is by fre-
quent hand washing or the use
of hand sanitizers. Cover your
mouth when you cough or
sneeze, and avoid work or
school when you are very ill to
prevent spreading infection. Vac-


cines are very useful in prevent-
ing infections such as pneumo-
nia and the flu. Don't smoke, as
smokers are more likely to
develop infections.
Doctors and patients can help
prevent antibiotic resistance by
working together against this
very serious problem.


Help 'Healthy Families Florida' continue


LABELLE - Florida Legisla-
ture made a wise decision to
invest in Healthy Families Florida
in 1998. Healthy Families Florida
is the only program in Florida
proven to prevent child abuse
before it ever begins. The
nationally credentialed, commu-
nity-based, voluntary home visit-
ing program begins providing
services during pregnancy or at
the birth of a child. Healthy Fam-
ilies' services help parents cope
with challenges and learn neces-
sary skills, to provide their chil-
dren with positive, nurturing
developmental experiences.
In Hendry and Glades Coun-
ties, Healthy Families is spon-
sored by Hendry and Glades
Counties Health Departments
and annually serves 210 families
and their children. Each year in
53 of Florida's 67 counties,


Healthy Families provides servic-
es to 13, 000 high-risk families,
while sparing 21,000 children
from injury, emotional and psy-
chological trauma, developmen-
tal delay or even worse.
An independent five-year eval-
uation showed that Healthy Fam-
ilies Florida's participants have
20 percent less child abuse and
neglect than all families in their
target service area in spite of the
fact that the participants are at
significantly higher risk for abuse
and neglect. Evidence-based out-
comes show that Healthy Fami-
lies Florida also improves the
health of mothers and their chil-
dren, increases parent-child
interaction, and improves family
self-sufficiency. Research has
shown investing in proven pre-
vention programs like Healthy
Families will avoid costs associat-


ed with abuse, such as the need
for out of home care, special
education, teen pregnancy,
school dropouts, juvenile delin-
quency, and substance abuse.
The Legislature has contin-
ued to fund Healthy Families,
but the program has gone four
years without any increase to
address the escalating costs of
providing these important serv-
ices. If the program does not
-receive a funding increase this
year, the quality of services pro-
vided, and thus the outstanding
results achieved in our commu-
nity and throughout Florida will
be severely compromised. Par-
enting is a demanding job and
parents and caregivers deserve
our support. Healthy Families
has proven evidence-based out-
comes and is making a real dif-
ference. Families in Hendry and


Glades Counties need the Flori-
da Legislature to invest addition-
al funds so Healthy Families can
continue the great work of pre-
venting child abuse and neglect,
For more information on
Healthy Families Hendry/Glades,
contact Judy Paskvan, Program
Director at Hendry County
Health Department, 1140 Pratt
Blvd., LaBelle. Phone: (863)-
674-4056 ext 116.
The Hendry/Glades County
Health Department promotes
and protects the health and safe-
ty of our two counties through
the delivery of quality health
services and the promotion of
health care standards.

MOORE HAVEN- On Feb. 23,
the entire Moore Haven
Junior/Senior High School was
invited to come out to the football
field for the Ag Olympics. Ag . .
members wore the official colors
of blue and gold, but still had to
remain within the limits of the
school dress code. Participants --
threw cow chips, competed in a
pedal tractor pull, made a dash to-------------
the finish line in the sack race and ..
also used their best roping tech-
niques in the hay bale roping
competition. Even a few teachers .
got into the act.
Mrs. Moss and Mrs. Hamilton
both threw a pretty mean cow
chip and pedaled their way
through the tractor pull. Mr.
Hutchinson and Mr. Ellinger both
participated in the sack race.
Future Farmers of America also ..
held an animal and plants exhibit
during the festivities. Some MHHS students participate in the sack races during the Ag Rodeo.

Eight seconds
Edison College student and Lakeport resident, Amy Ziegler stayed on the mechanical bull
for the full eight seconds during the Chalo-Nitka Festival held on March 3-4 in Moore
Haven. She said it was well worth the $5 ticket price.


World's best cowboys ready

action in the nation when Okee-
chobee hosts the national Dodge

Torry Island to host an adventure race


BELLE GLADE - On April 21,
in conjunction with the Black Gold
Jubilee, Belle Glade will host its first
adventure race, "Escape from
Torry Island." Adventure racing is a
growing sport throughout the
world. According to the United
States Adventure Race Association,
it is estimated that 250,000 people
have participated in adventure
races during the last five years. The
vast majority of adventure races
include rail running, mountain bik-
ing and, ideally, a paddling event.
Belle Glade's adventure race
will consist of a three-mile run,
seven-mile bike, and a three-quar-
ter mile canoe, as well as a zip line.
This race is perfect for beginners
and adventurous enough for sea-
soned athletes. To simply compete
and have an enjoyable race, you do


not need to be an expert in any of
these events. Often a basic working
knowledge will suffice.
Soloist and teams of two or
three will compete. Canoes and life
vests will be provided. The partici-
pants must bring their own moun-
tain bike and helmet. The biking
section will consist mostly of dou-
ble track. The running section will
be single track with some dense
vegetation. The race will also
include some creative challenges
and obstacles. Many racers find the
team aspect of adventure racing to
be among the most enticing and
demanding aspects.
More detailed information
about the race and registration can
be found at www.torryisland.com.
For more information, call Kenny
Lutz, (561) 914-0373.

you it's none of your business.
You know it's going to be a bad
day when your horn goes off

I watched the account of
newsman Bob Woodruff and his
wife Lee on television recently;
about how he was injured in an
attack in Iraq and how h,e came to
be restored to a more whole life.
He was in a coma for 36 days; not
surprising due to the amount of
brain damage suffered and the
loss of a large part of his left hemi-
sphere. The story told of those
who did not make it, those who
made it but were seriously and
permanently incapacitated, the
doctors and specialists who had
to say again and again "We don't
know" when families pressed for
answers to "Will he be all right?"
There was another shocking
detail pointed out in the story.
Bob Woodruff suffered from a
clearly visible injury; plain for
everyone to see. There were also
those who suffer during the war
from "closed head injuries" too.
Concussions and shocks caused
within-the-head injuries that were
not as obvious or visible. In fact, it
was conjectured that such

upper corner of the picture you
can see part of the python with its
head missing. Evidently the swal-
lowing took place after a bitter
struggle between the snake and
the alligator. In the end, both
came out losers. This gruesome
scene was spotted by a helicopter
pilot in the Florida Everglades on
Sept. 26.
The Burmese python are native
to Southeast Asia and grow to be
as long as 20 feet. We are told that
more than 144,000 Burmese
python have been imported to the
United States in the past five years,
and being young and very small,
they are bought for pets. Evidently


A clergyman in his fifties had
written a manuscript for a book
and sent it to a host of publishers
without success. He grew so dis-
couraged that he threw the man-
uscript into a waste paper bas-
ket. As his wife tried to salvage
the manuscript, he told her stern-
ly. "We've wasted enough time
on it. I forbid you to take it from
the wastebasket."
The next day his wife decided
that the manuscript should be
seen by at least one more pub-
lisher. Not wanting to disobey
her husband, she arrived at that
publisher's office with the most
unusual looking package that the
publisher's office had ever
received as a manuscript. Under
the wrapping of brown paper
was a wastepaper basket still
holding the clergyman's manu-
script.
This man's wife had been


injuries might be even more
prevalent than those that were so
plainly visible. One of the
vignettes in the account told of a
serviceman who came home
from the war and "knew some-
thing was wrong" but showed no
visible signs of .injury - and how
long it took to finally find out the
extent of his very-real injuries. It is
natural to sympathize with per-
sons who are obviously injured
and visibly handicapped; others
who are just as worthy of our sup-
port and understanding don't
always get it.
Recently, a newscast told
about a group on the east coast
asking their community to crack
down on persons who have
handicapped parking permits but
who are in good health. The
group claimed that healthy per-
sons are depriving those who
really have needs and that the city
should do something. I wondered
about just how many of those
who have less-than-visible
injuries suffer not only from their
injuries but from the criticism of
those who really don't know. I
also thought about the real fault
lying with those who provide the
documentation to enable persons

the past two years, 156 have been

They seem to be multiplying
and challenging the alligator as
the monarch of the swamps.
Sometimes the snake wins; some-
times the alligator wins. Some-
times it is a draw. A python was
seen wrapping himself around an
alligator. The alligator rolls and
tumbles, and fights and bites.
After about 24 hours of this, the
encounter obviously ended in a
draw, with both swimming off
and vanishing. It would seem that

remove the manuscript from the
waste paper basket, the publish-
er did. That manuscript was Nor-
man Vincent Peale's "The Power

We all get discouraged. Even
Norman Vincent Peale can get
discouraged. All of us walk
through the valley at some time
in our lives. Our faith is what gets
us through. Faith is that unshake-
able sense of trust that keeps us
going through life's dark and dif-
ficult valleys.
We all get downhearted, but
we do not have to be defeated,
for Christ is with us. In our faith
we have that assurance. But in
our faith is also a promise. Faith,

likely will never hear of the first

In one of the healing accounts
in the New Testament, Luke
writes about Jesus going to the
home of Simon and healing a
fever that struck his mother-in-
law. The account goes on to tell
that "When the sun was setting;
the people brought to Jesus all
who had various kinds of sick- -
ness, and laying His hands on
each one, He healed them (Luke
4:38-40)." It seems insofar as ill-
ness was concerned, Jesus took
on all comers. There was no
triage or deciding who was and
who was not worthy; it was that
each of the persons presenting
with the "various kinds of sick-
ness":was touched.
I would suspect that today
Jesus would heal those who have
less visible injuries and sickness-
es; those who are addicted and
bear few visible marks of their
sickness, those who repel us by
the sickness of their selfishness,
those who must be unable to care
about others and thus are incom-
plete in their development as
whole persons. In some senses, it
might seem that sickness and sin

sight, is it? If this is appalling and
shocking to our sensitivities; how
much more so should it become
when we visualize human beings
in the picture? When we feel hos-
tile and combative toward others,
and are disposed to yield to the
flesh, remember what Paul said,
"But if ye bite and devour one
another, take heed that ye be not
consumed one of another." Fuss-
ing and fighting are not civil, being
beneath the dignity of creatures
made in God's image, let alone
being Christian. Spiritually speak-
ing, there are no winners in carnal
disputations. "Take heed!"


forward look, a positive expecta-
tion, and an unquenchable hope.
There is a thread that runs
from the first chapters of the
Bible right on through the last
verses of Revelation. It is a thread
that continued through the early
church, the Reformation, the
Wesleyan revivals and is still to
be found among the followers of
Jesus today. That thread is, of
course, the knowledge that the
God who has created us will for-
ever be with us. We are His peo-
ple and the sheep of His pasture.
Embracing this in faith helps
nurture within us an unshake-
able sense'of trust that will keep
us going through career changes,
bouts with cancer, the loss of
loved ones, and all of the wilder-
ness experiences and bad days
that are part of living in this
world.


are synonymous; but one tends to
get our pity and the other makes
us feel repulsed. Sometimes we
miss out because our reactions
get in the way; the Lord took on
all comers and saw beyond what
was outward into the hurting,
poorly developed, handicapped
spirit. That's much harder to do! It
doesn't mean being used or
manipulated, being abused just
because someone has problems;
it does mean recognizing and
working to heal, seeing beneath
the obvious and caring in spite of
ordinary human reactions. Peo-
ple tell us in many different ways
"I hurt" and some are more easily
heard or understood than others.
We are called to help heal in spite
of what we see; in spite of what
the victim thinks (or says) he
needs, in spite of what is obvious,
in spite of what "turns us off." The
people that saw Jesus heal all of
the various illnesses wanted Him
to stay around with them after-
ward. I find that He stays around
with us when we follow His
examples too; taking on all com-
ers, healing, caring, seeing
beyond the obvious and doing
good in spite of those who really
need it.
