CLEWISTON - After a long
week of stressful testing for the
third graders at Westside Ele-
mentary School last, students
finally got a break.
The third grade teachers
decided on giving back a little
something to the students for the
hard work and effort they put
during the week of FCAT.
On Friday, March 7, 108 third
grade students participated in
the, "Make Your Own Ice Cream
Sundae," party at the school,
resulting in about 108 smiling
faces and 216 hands that needed
a little washing afterward.
School officials and teachers
were adamant that the students
deserved it.
"We wanted to reward them
on their efforts on the FCAT," said
Kathy Paige, who also helped to
make the event happen. "We are
truly happy with our students
since they had nearly perfect
attendance throughout the five
days of the testing period," Ms.

well as the JV and varsity Tigers

pated this winter season did an
excellent job." Mr. Antonatci said.

Paige added.
It was the first year for FCAT
testing for Westside Elementary,
explained Ms. Paige, and all the
kids, "did a great job," she said.
During the event, some of the

the FCAT was - it wasn't at all as
difficult as they thought it was
going to be.
"The FCAT test was easy!"

Homeowner shoots robber


Suspect attacks,
is shot twice

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza and
Brenda Taylor Jaramillo
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - A 74-year-
old Clewiston man foiled a 20-
year-old intruder's attempt to
rob his home on Sunday night,
struggling with awould-be rob-
ber, and shooting him twice,


once in the chest.
According to police, a man
and woman broke into the Sagi-
naw Avenue home of Jimmy
and Martha Norman, at approx-
imately 11 p.m. March 11 and
demanded money from the
couple. The man was reported-
ly carrying a gun (later found to
be a B.B. gun) and a tire iron. .
The man and Mr. Norman
struggled briefly and the intrud-
er hit Mr. Norman on the head
with a tire iron several times,


according to the report.
While his wife screamed in
terror, Mr. Norman, 74, broke
free and retrieved a gun from
his bedroom - cornering the
man and shooting him from
about 10 feet away.
"I was just doing what I had
to do to survive," Mr. Norman
said.
Mr. Norman told deputies he
had just finished closing the
blinds in the rear of the home
when the suspects - who had


apparently been standing out-
side - tore through the win-
dow with the iron.
"The window exploded," Mr.
Norman said.
On Tuesday, Mr. Norman
said he didn't know exactly why
he hadn't given in to the rob-
bers' demands - since it hap-
pened so quickly, it may have
just been his instinct to fight
back.
Mr. Norman said he froze
after the intruders came inside


the house, still shocked, but
without a second thought
lunged at the man. The two
started wrestling each other.
"I have to get that gun or'
he'll kill us," Mr. Norman
remembered saying to himself
during the struggle. "I knew I
had to fight if I were going to
live."
Mr. Norman shoved the sus-
pect back, knocking him

Rodriguez: 'I am
working for the
best sheriff's dept.'

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Don
Rodriguez, currently serving as
Captain for the Hendry County
Sheriff Department in the Clewis-
ton substation, sometimes takes
a look back at his 19-year career
in law enforcement.
Though he's had to make
decisions in the past that would
have placed him far from Clewis-
ton if he had decided to leave, he
is very happy he never did.
Working for the local h-,iiff' "
office, he said, is a very satisfying
experience.
Capt. Rodriguez, born and
raised in Chicago, decided to
move down South to Florida in


1986, because he wanted a bet-
ter place for his two boys to
group.
He came to the small town of
Clewiston while looking for a'
place and, according to Capt.
Rodriguez, "Fell in love with it."
Everything else since then is
just icing on the cake.
"I started my career in law
enforcement right here in
Hendry County back in 1988,"
he said. "It will be 19 years this
October."
He began developing an
interest in the law enforcement
field soon after he arrived in
Clewiston and he started associ-
ating himself with the local auxil-
iary, where he met contacts in
the field who gave him the
opportunity to ride with them to
get a feel for the job.
He rode with full-time

Beef '0' Brady's



opens locally


New business
opened doors
on Monday ..

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Beef '0'
Brady's, a national franchise,
opened its doors in Clewiston on
Monday, March 12.
Customers waiting to try out
the area's newest restaurant
came in droves that day to sam-
ple the food.
When they first thought of
purchasing the franchise rights
to the restaurant for Clewiston,
owners Randy and Kersten


Maxson wanted to fill what
they thought was the need for
a family-oriented restaurant,
with a community neighbor-
hood theme.
The couple relocated to
Clewiston from Ft. Lauderdale a
little more than two years ago,
Kersten serves as a board mem-
ber for Clewiston Christian
School, and Randy is employed
by U.S. Sugar as an accountant.
They think they've found the
right person to manage the
restaurant.
"Since both my wife and I
have already very busy sched-
ules, we have my wife's brother,

Local athlete excited about future


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - Glades Cen-
tral student athlete Deonte
Thompson is looking forward to
his college venture, slated to
begin this fall.
For Mr. Thompson, 18, his
high school career will be one
that he will always cherish and
remember. However, Mr.
Thompson said that he knows
life must go on.
Mr. Thompson will be attend-
ing the University of Florida, the
school that he picked over other
football schools such as USC,
LSU, Florida State, Ohio State
and the University of Miami.
Mr. Thompson's mother, Ver-


lene Roberts, said that her son is
the first person in their family to
go to college on a scholarship.
"I am very happy for Deonte,"
said Ms. Roberts. "It will give his
little cousins, nieces and
nephews hope to succeed in
school."
Mr. Thompson said his suc-
cess has been possible in part
because of his mother instilling
in him the importance of obey-
ing authority and humility, two
traits that have contributed to his
strong bond with Ms. Roberts.
"Obedience will make me
live longer," said Mr. Thompson.
"I will do everything in my
power to make her proud."
Mr. Thompson also said that
his mother taught him how to be


independent during his child-
hood. He said that it had much
to do with his father not being
around much of the time and his
mother raising him on her own.
Mr. Thompson said he does-
n't want his five-month-old
daughter, Deaja, to have that
same experience he had.
"My daughter is everything to
me and I want the best for her,"
said Mr. Thompson.
Mr. Thompson said that being
close to his daughter is a key
component to him staying in
Florida for college.
Mr. Thompson said that he
expects to get a great education
at the University of Florida,
where he will major in business.
He also said that he expects to


meet new people, be a great
football player there, and have a
great experience.
Mr. Thompson said that he
doesn't take this experience for
granted in a football sense.
"It's a blessing to be able to
still play football," said Mr.
Thompson. "Some of my former
teammates have played their last
football game at the state cham-
pionships."
Mr. Thompson said that giv-
ing his life over to a higher
authority about a year ago paved
the way for his future.
"Without Christ, my success
wouldn't be possible," said Mr.
Thompson.

Free Trade
Agreements - a threat
Agriculture has always been the
cornerstone of our nation's way of
life. Our dedicated farmers and
ranchers improve this country's
well being and promise to feed
American soldiers where ever they
are to ensure our nation's freedom
and security.
Free trade agreements between
the United States and foreign coun-
tries such as North America Free
Trade Agreement, NAFTA, and
Central American Free Trade
Agreement, CAFTA are threat to
our nation's security. NAFTA has
caused so many problems with cat-
tle and sugar industry already.
Future foreign free trade agree-
ments will eventually eat America's
Heartland. U.S free trade agree-
ment with Costa Rico, El Salvador,
Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua
and the Dominican Republic
(CAFTA) passed the Congress July,
2005. It took well over a year and
plenty of shady and backroom
threats to finish the job. There were
many grass roots campaigns to
defeat CAFTA, which resulted in
the closest vote ever in the House of
Representatives, a narrow 217-215.
American Sugar Alliances
fought tooth and nail to protect the
America's sugar industry. Indus-
tries message was loud and reli-
able. They had every reason to
point out the important roll that
sugar industry plays in 42 states.
The sweetener industry has an
annual impact of $2.1 billion on
the United State economy, and
provides over 370,000 jobs in this


country. It operates at no cost to
taxpayers. The corn wet milling
uses over 680,000,000 bushels of
corn nationwide each year for
making sweetener. This alone
adds 25 cents per bushel and saves
the government $500-$700 million
per year (as estimated by USDA) in
reduced deficiency payments to
corn growers. It enhances the
price of corn everywhere. In
Wyoming it adds $1,316,000 to the
value of the corn crop due to pur-
chases made by the corn refining
industry. $2,004,300,000 is gener-
ated in the state of Florida each
year by the production of sugar
and corn sweetener products,
$188,500,000 in Montana, and
$1,137,900,000 in Nebraska. These
four states are part of the national
sweetener industry of the 42 states
that help create $21.1 billion in
economic activity.
The stop CAFTA coalition was
not successful in making the Unit-
ed States Congress listen to her
people (Government of people by
the people). Bush's administration
made sure to ignore people pleads.
The situation was so unfair that
Mexico joint the anti-CAFTA forum.
The president of the Mexican sugar
Chamber told U.S. Congress, "We
are making good in our effort to
resolve the sweetener dispute
between the United States and
Mexico because of North America
Free Trade Agreement NAFTA. The
CAFTA sugar provision takes mar-
ket access that rightfully belongs to
Mexico through NAFTA, he
assured the CAFTA sugar provision
presents a "major problem" to
solving the sweetener dispute.
Many religious organizations


had taken positions against the
CAFTA. The Presbyterian
Church, American Jewish World
Service, Lutheran World Relief,
and the Catholic Relief Services
called on Congress to look at the
moral implications of CAFTA
before moving foreword. CAFTA
laws are lacking values of justice,
fairness and hope which the
majority of members of Congress
choose not to listen.
Central America, and the
Dominican Republic have high lev-
els of poverty and growing gap
between the rich and poor - a gap
that is also widening in the U.S. the
livelihoods of millions of small
farmers in Central America and
Dominican Republican will vanish
because of CAFTA, and families
will migrating to urban centers and
the U.S. to have a better life. Despite
many anti-CAFTA coalitions in
America and El Salvador people
protesting and challenging Sal-
vadoran Supreme Court the consti-
tutionality of the agreement the
U.S. Congress passed CAFTA. This
agreement will trigger future free
trade agreement, which will
involve Brazil. Free trade agree-
ment with Brazil will, eat America's
heartland, because Brazil is the
world's largest exporter of Sugar,
soybeans, beef, poultry, tobacco,
orange juice, coffee, and ethanol.
Brazil's goal is complete domina-
tion of the world agriculture mar-
ket. They are armed with subsidiz-
ing their farmers, no labor or
environmental standards, millions
of acres which is used for sugar
cane, which is heavily subsidized
by government to be used in the
Brazilian ethanol empire. Thirty


years ago, Brazil's government
began building the world most
sophisticated ethanol empire.
Today they are the world's biggest
and cheapest ethanol producer
and exporter Brazil produces 4.5
billion gallons of ethanol annually.
Brazil's intention is to find a way to
the U.S. ethanol and sugar markets,
which will be exporting their highly
subsidized sugar cane and corn to
U.S. market less than what Ameri-
can farmers can produce.
Farming was America's first
industry. Today, this industry pro-
vides us with food, clothing, fuel for
our energy, and employees. Mor 3
than 24 million workers includiTng
farmers, shipping, marketers, g o-
cers, truck drivers, inspectors, ',nd
others who annually control ute
more than $1.3 trillion to our g oss
domestic product. We spend n ore
than $50 billion in products that
help feed people in countries
around the world. Farmers are the
backbone of this country they
should be treated fair in the free
trade agreements, and world trade
organization.
It is time for American people to
take a stand and address our Con-
gress to stop and look back before
they sign a new free trade agree-
ment. Our agriculture is worth
fighting for. Our American farmers
can compete in a fair arena against
any farmer in the world, and pro-
duce safe and quality crop, that I
promise you, but U.S. farmers can-
not compete against the foreign
governments that subsidized their
production.
Sincerely,

FPL, HRMC sponsor Glades Hendry Job Fair


GLADES COUNTY - Glades
and Hendry EDCs team up to assist
businesses with recruitment.
With the construction of a new
FPL West County Energy slated to
begin this spring, plans to construct
a new emergency room and surgi-
cal suite at Hendry Regional Medical
Center in Clewiston, as well as an
urgent care center in LaBelle, the
opening of the new Glades County
Detention Center in July, and the
anticipated siting of new manufac-
turing and commercial businesses
elsewhere in Glades and Hendry
Counties in coming months, finding
employees for new businesses and
assisting existing businesses with
staff development has become
more crucial than ever.
For that reason, the Glades
County Economic Development
Council Inc,, and Hendry County
Economic Development Council
have teamed up with Florida Power
and Light, Hendry Regional Medical
Center and the Career and Services
Center of Southwest Florida to
organize the 2007 Glades-Hendry
County Job Fair and Career Expo
Thursday, March 15, from 9 a.m. to
3 p.m. at the Doyle Conner Bldg.,
900 US 27 S.W, Moore Haven.
According to Glades EDC


executive director Tracy Whirls,
the joint Job Fair and Career Expo
will not only be the first step in
matching qualified candidates
with area businesses' staff devel-
opment needs, but will mark the
launch of an effort to identify and
track candidates seeking training
and education in their particular
field of interest.
Area residents can sign up now
for positions with FPL's contractors,
West County Power Partners, LLC
for positions which could keep
them gainfully employed through
2013 and beyond, Ms. Whirls said.
West County Power Partners,
LLC will begin hiring by the end of
May to fill 900 construction jobs,
related to the construction of FPE's
West County Energy Center, a natu-
ral-gas electricity plant at 20-mile
bend in Loxahatchee.
According to Sherry Thomas,
with West County Power Partners,
LLC, the company will be hiring
pipefitters, welders, laborers, car-
penters, cement finishers, mill-
wrights, ironworkers, electricians
and even some clerical staff.
While some skilled positions
will be needed, opportunities will
be available for laborers and "green
helpers," with salaries expected to

range from $10-$11.25 an hour to
start. Applicants must be 18, but no
high school diploma is required.
"Once we get people hired,
we'll start having classes," Ms.
Thomas said, noting that with an'
expected 50 hour per week work
week, with jobs paying time and a
half over 40 hours, even the entry
level positions will be competitive.
Skilled tradesmen can expect to do
even better, with positions avail-
able for NCCR certified journey-
men starting out at $22 an hour.
With ground already broken
and construction on the West
County Energy Center slated to
begin within two months, the
expectation is that construction
crews will be able to work through
that project, the first phase of which
will be finished in 2009 and begin
work on construction of the FPL
Glades Power Park near Moore
Haven in the summer of 2008.
As the first unit of the Glades
Power Park is not expected to come
on line before 2012, skilled trades-
men from the entire area will be
gainfully employed for many years.

chobee, DeSoto, Hardee and Lee
Counties, urging them to bring
their upper classmen to the career
development event. Junior and
senior high school students will be
asked to register and identify their
career goals, to assist the EDCs
and the Career and Services Cen-


ter in helping them pursue train-
ing and job opportunities in their
fields of interest.
"The 2007 Glades County Job
and Career Expo will be the first
step in helping to match students
and other job seekers with entry
level as well as upper level employ-
ment opportunities in their chosen
field, as well as education and train-
ing opportunities to help them find
the job of their dreams," Ms. Whirls
said, adding that in addition to
companies and agencies, such as
FPL, Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter, Hope Hospice and Community
Service, Pedro's Concrete Pump-
ing, the Glades County Sheriff's
Office, Amor Correctional Health
Services, Nisbet Enterprises, United
States Sugar Corporation, Moore
Haven Correctional Facility, South
FloridaWater Management District,
Hendry County Board of County
Commissioners and others,
schools including the Education
Center of Southwest Florida, and
Edison College, are expected to be
on hand for the event.
While specifically targeting
young adults, the job fair is open to
anyone interested in seeking full
time employment or training.
Spanish language translators will
be on site, and Career and Service
Center staff will provide assistance
with resume preparation and other
work ready programs.

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 control technologies. Highly 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.

After an extensive evaluation of
USCPC Pollution Control Technology
modern coal technologies, FPL
determined that an advanced tech-
nology called ultra-supercritical
pulverized coal (USCPC) is the best F Fabrk flft
option to meet this need for reliable "(s*'Sb0) =E
power with environmental protec-, etr.-
tion designed into the plant. sinwih
Ultra-supercritical refers to the " " I" ' '
highest level of efficiency and will y,,,tem j
set a new standard for coal genera- . us-�lfro
. . . . ---- her Ho
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


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
concluding that this technology is
"=-' ..... .-5" the best choice to produce reliable
'e " . power for our customers. The pro-
- posed FPL Glades Power Park will, in

Saint Patrick: keeping God's view and seeing good anyway!


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There are some common
things known about Saint Patrick;
how he used the shamrock to
talk about the Trinity, how he was
supposed to have driven the
snakes out of Ireland and how he
is celebrated with the "Emerald
Isle" with his color being green.
March 17 is the day he is remem-
bered by the Irish and non-Irish
alike. Like many heroes of the
Church, we regard them as
"saints" because they have done
something worth remembering.
As I was digging into his biogra-
phy, I was impressed by a revela-
tion that told me about his char-
acter and something that made


him worthy of remembrance. It
seems that he was born in A.D.
385 in Britain and at age 16 was
captured and enslaved by a band
of Irish marauders. After some
time, he escaped and went to
France. There he studied the faith
with church members and he
was given a ministry. He returned
to his homeland, Britain, and
would have had an ordinary and
happy life there, but shortly after
being called to a higher office in
the Church, he decided to return
to Ireland. It is his work in Ireland
for which he is best known and
he has been remembered by the
Irish people and the world for his
faith and zeal. Returning there in
A.D. 432 would have made him
47 years old when he began that
ministry; his real ministry and


calling. He died in A.D. 461, mak-
ing him 61 years old and being
among the Irish only 14 years.
Every now
and again, I
read about
persons who ...- .
have returned I
to places
where they .
have been
imprisoned or
abused.
Recently, there Samuel S.
have been Thomas
prisoners of
war who have returned to the
countries where they were cap-
tured. Others have returned to
places of torment and fear: Nel-
son Mandela in South Africa or
some of our prisoners of war


returning to Viet Nam. We see
today those who return to the
war zones of the middle east;
after seeing first-hand and living
through what must have been
the worst experiences of their
lives. This must take a great deal
of courage and spiritual
strength; the majority of those
released or who escaped, never
want to go back and we can
understand why.
Apparently Patrick was one of
those people who did go back.
Not only did he want to go back,
but he ministered and became
greatly respected among those
who had originally captured and
enslaved him. He must have seen
something special among the
people that made him dedicate
the most fruitful years of his life to


them; something in spite of bad
first contacts. I will remember
Patrick for his example of
courage and seeing good when it
would have been so easy to see
bad. The Lord who looked down
from the cross and said "Father,
forgive them for they know not
what they do (Luke 23:34)"
would have been Patrick's exam-
ple. In the midst of His own suf-
fering, the Lord calls for forgive-
ness. He saw something good
among those who did not know
Him, those who tortured Him,
those who abandoned Him and
those who jeered Him and were
angry. The Lord taught "Love
your enemies and bless those
who persecute you (Matthew
5:44)" was to live out His teach-
ing in His own life: Patrick was to


follow Jesus' example and his
acts would change an entire peo-
ple. It is in living out what we
have been taught from God that
we can look for God's hand at
work in our lives.
In the midst of the worst of
things that could happen to us;
there is something to be learned,
something to call us to faith,
something to bring us closer to
God and something to prove to
be a chance to show what we
really believe. Patrick must have
seen something very good
among the people who enslaved
him, in spite of the circum-
stances and what happened. He
could see beyond just what was
going on; he had God's vision
about it all. That's what really
mattered - and still does.


Growing up with blessings and woes, woes and blessings


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Growing up, we lived across
the street from Central Junior High
School. My friends and I played on
the school playground just about
every day. It was a simpler time, a
more trusting time. But things
were beginning to change.
One day at play, we noticed
that someone had put graffiti on
the wall of the school building. I'm
not sure I had ever seen graffiti
before. I know I hadn't seen one
of the two words scrawled on the
wall before. It began with the let-
ter "f" and the second word was
you. When we stopped by
Tommy's house later in the day,


Tommy and I shared what we had
read. His mother was horrified
and she said that if he said it again
he would get
his mouth
washed out
with soap; that
he was never to
say that word
or other words
like it. She sent
me home with
threats of call-
ing my parents John
and letting Hicks
them know
what we said. She ranted in the
way only a mother can rant and
she put the fear of God in me. I
don't think my parents were
informed about the situation, and


I was just as happy that they
weren't.
I learned my lesson: "nice peo-
ple don't curse". That way of see-
ing the world worked for me for a
long time. Then someone shared
with me that Christ cursed. Not in
a vile and demeaning way and
certainly not in the intent-to-
shock-and-scandalize way of graf-
fiti or contemporary cinema, but
rather as a word of warning to all
who choose to live in opposition
to God's way.
The Bible cleans it up in the
translation to English - "woe to
you". Jesus not only conferred on
His hearers blessings, but also
pronounced upon them woes.
Please note that Jesus does not
wish these woes upon people


who are disobedient to God, nor
does He cause the woe in the pro-
nouncing of it, but He simply
announces that their disobedi-
ence results in the woes.
I fully believe that Jesus wants
nothing more than to have those
who live in woe to begin living in
blessedness. He wants this trans-
formation so much that He goes
to the cross to help make it hap-
pen. God wants us to be blessed.
God wants salvation for all. And
that's the important message that
many churches emphasize.
I have, however, worshipped
in places where the message was
based not on the promise of bless-
ing but on the promise of damna-
tion. Let me share that I much pre-
fer being blessed to being


damned. Nonetheless, the differ-
ence between the church that
preaches blessing and the church
that preaches woe is not really all
that much. One wants to love us
into heaven and one wants to
scare us out of hell. Blessings and
woes, woes and blessings.
I grew up knowing blessings. A
loving family consistently reaf-
firmed that I was loved. Good
teachers consistently exposed me
to powerful ideas and planted
seeds of success and happiness.
My church brought me comfort in
abundance. I enjoy blessings, and
I preach blessings, but I also rec-
ognize there comes a time for
challenges.
We are very good at saying yes
to all that is good and beautiful


and gentle and loving and kind
and nice, but what do we reject?
To what do we say, "NO!"?
The early Christians were per-
secuted not so much for what they
believed (Jesus Christ is Lord) but
for what they refused to believe
(Caesar is Lord). We pastors are
distinguished not only by what we
graciously support, but also by
what we condemn. If all that we
preach only seeks to make peace
with hearers, then we need to
check ourselves to see if we are
being faithful to the gospel.
Proclaiming blessings is not
bad, but we also need to recog-
nize the woes. There is graffiti on
the walls of this school of life, and
we need to be cognizant of the
woes as well as the blessings.

YOUR DIRTY WORK


Can Christians do without denominations?


By Jackie Miller
First Christian
Church, Clewiston
To what denomination did
Peter, James, John, the 3000 on
Pentecost (Acts 2:38-47), Cor-
nelius, the Ethiopian eunch,
Lydia, the Corinthians and the
Philippian jailer belong (as well
as every else we read about in
the book of Acts)? The answer,
they belonged to none! They
were simply members of the
body of Christ, which is the
Lord's church (Eph. 1:22, 23;
Colossians 1:18; 24), yet they
were not members of any
denomination as we know them
today (Eph. 4:4-6). All who were
saved became members of this
body (Eph. 5:23), the church, by
virtue of the fact that the Lord
added them to it (Acts 2:47). Yet
they belonged to no denomina-
tion. They had been delivered


from the "power of darkness," or
the world, and were now trans-
lated into the "kingdom of God's
dear Son," which is the church
(Colossians 1:13, 14, 18), but
they were not members of any
denominational church. They
had been called into ONE BODY
(Colossians 3:15).
Just so today, if a sinner
believes in Christ, and is bap-
tized, just as the 3,000 on Pente-
cost were, the eunuch, Lydia,
etc., such would make this per-
son simply a CHRISTIAN, but
nothing more (Mark 16:16; Acts
2:36-41,8:35-39; 16:14,15,16:30,
34, Romans 6:3-4; Galatians 3:26-
27). This would not make him a
member of any denomination.
And if a great number should do
this, would they not have the
same status?
Should this number come
together on the first day of the

week to worship, Acts 20:7, iden-
tify themselves simply by the
name of Christ as did the apos-
tles and early Christians, accept
and teach the Bible as their only
rule of faith and practice, have
such leaders to serve as the Bible
authorizes, and believe and
observe the same teachings in
the same way as the apostles and
early Christians did, and as are
set forth in the Bible, would they
not simply be the Lord's church
without being a denomination.
We believe this is the position
taught in the Bible and that all of
us should take. The Bible only
makes only New Testament
Christians, no more and not less,
and as Christians we are mem-
bers of the New Testament
church, and that alone! If upon
repenting and being baptized
the Lord adds us to His church,
like in the first century, why be


joined to anything else? With the
possession of the Word of God
in its entirety, why think that we
call ourselves by denomination-
al names? We believe in Christ.
He is our creed, and we do what
He says. Consequently the New
Testament is our only rule of
faith and doctrine (no man-
made creeds).
Does this sound good to you?
Does it sound too good to be
true? Most people will say that
they actually believe that this is
the way it should be, but getting
them to implement it is another
thing. Really, it is not a matter of
opinion or optional. Christ pur-
chased the church with His own
blood (Acts 20:28). The church
belongs to him. This is a very
serious matter, and it is of the
utmost importance that we lis-
ten and do what He says (John
12:48).

A bull looks out from the chute waiting for his rider Satur-
day, March 12, at the Xtreme Bulls competition in Brighton.
These bulls are selected because of their power and con-
sistent performance.


S Jake Wade, 23, nicknamed "Snake" for his ability to slither
Marcus Michaelis from Idaho wears head and face protection himself into the perfect position world-class bulls, rigs a bull
when riding. He settles down on the bull and readies himself for in the chute the night of March 12, at the Xtreme Bulls com-
eight seconds of gut-wrenching terror, hoping to be in the petition in Brighton. Riders bring and put on their own rig-
money at the Xtreme Bulls competition in Brighton on March 10. going before mounting their bulls for their eight-second ride.

Florida gets taste of Extreme Bulls


Cooper Klanngiesser grips the hand-strap woven into his rig-
ging as he prepares for the bull to explode from the chute at
the Xtreme Bells competition in Brighton on March 10.


By MaryAnn Morris
INI
The Extreme Bulls tour
attracts the best of bull riders
from across the United States.
Young and tough, these risk tak-
ing athletes challenge the one
ton athletes of the bovine
species; the biggest, rankest
bulls found coast to coast. For
the first time, the tour came to
Fred Smith Arena on the
Brighton Seminole Reservation
the night of Saturday, March 10.


"I keep trying and hanging on 'til my head hits
the ground."
- Justin Koon


If you missed the action, the
show will be telecast on the
ESPN networks on Saturday,
April 14, at 4 p.m. If you were
there, you can watch again.
When these professionals
tangle, what you get is the kind
of mayhem that means good
entertainment, especially when


you add in the commentary by
Donni Gay, ESPN's bull riding
analyst and former ProRodeo
Hall of Fame Bull Rider.
The riders are all young men
in their twenties, athletes of the
highest order; toned, strong and
flexible every fiber to be tuned
to the mind and muscle of a bull


who doesn't want them or their
noisy rigging anywhere around.
"I keep trying and hanging or
'til my head hits the ground,'
said Justin Koon.
The rigging, braided rope thai
goes around the bull with a
hand-hold knitted in is made by
hand to each rider's specifica-
tions. Without the security of rig-
ging, the rider would catapult of
at the bulls first jump. The rig.
going gives the rider a hand hold,

INI/MaryAnn Morris
Rodeo "clowns" are top athletes themselves, at time throw-
ing themselves between an angry, charging bull and a fallen
rider. Actually known as bullfighters and barrel men, their job
is cowboy protection. Here veteran PRCA clown and barrel
man Bryan Rodriguez, 35, waits and watches for the nod
from the cowboy, telling the man on the gate to let 'er rip.
[I6 d~W 9HSS'k^M ~ w H

and the riders know and care for
their own rigging. Rigging and
the solidly padded black protec-
tive vests all riders wear give the
riders a fighting chance against
the massive animals, chosen for
their misanthropic natures.
No fewer than 60 riders came
to compete in this event and also
in the Speckled Perch Rodeo in
Okeechobee. From Nevada,
Washington, Idaho, Arizona,
Wisconsin, Texas and Mississip-
pi they traveled.
Cody Hancock, from Arizona,
a 31-year-old who took it all in
2000 will ride, as will 2006 World
Champion 23 year old B.J. Schu-
macher from Wisconsin. The
trio of top riders is rounded out
by Zeb Lanham, 2006 Extreme
Bulls champion.
Not to be forgotten, the funny
men in the ring, bullfighters are
a bull rider's best friend. The
bullfighter's number one job is
to protect a fallen bull rider from
a rampaging bull, they often
throwtheir bodies between the
bull and the bull rider. Barrel
men also play an important role
. in cowboy protection. They
often help to lure a bull away
from a cowboy. But that's not a

barrel man's only job. He's also
there to entertain the crowd dur-
ing breaks in the action.
Clowns, much like barrel
men, entertain the crowd during
breaks in the rodeo, but they
don't play a role in cowboy pro-
tection.
The tension down at the
chutes went from almost non-
existent to palpable when the
waiting riders slid down onto
their bulls. The bulls, brought to
Florida for the event by five live-
stock contractors, included 2006
Bull of the Year, Biloxi Blues,
unridden in 18 attempts and the
bull, Southwick. Bulls are pro-
vided by stock contractors, prob-
ably the most overlooked people
in the production of a successful
rodeo.
The stock contractors breed
livestock and load animals for
the haul to the next rodeo. Their
main task is ensuring that the
four-legged athletes of profes-
sional rodeo are healthy, well-
fed, properly cared for and fit to
perform. And while the cow-
boys get most of the recognition,
the bucking bulls and horses at
PRCA rodeos play a vital role in
the success of the contestant. In
roughstock events, half the cow-
boy's score comes from the ani-
mal's ability to buck with power
and consistency. The value of
top bulls can reach $30,000, and
a first-rate bucking horse can sell
for more than $15,000.
Veteran rider, Cody Hancock
took the top money Saturday.
After being sidelined by an
injury last year, Cody came back
into the money with $15,058 for
the night followed by Bryan
Richardson with $9,559, Bobby
Welsh with $6,655 and Jimmy
Crosby with $6,147.

Ready for the festival
There were long lines at the entrance of the Chalo-Nitka Festival on the morning of Saturday
March 3, as residents and guests paid a $5 donation entry fee to the Chamber of Commerce.


The Chalo Nitka Festival Parade on March 3 brought crowds to downtown Moore Haven.
Along the side of the road in front of Moore Haven High School there were two sets of twins
and a pair of friends enjoying parade. Can you tell which set is not twins: Sakaiya Summers
and Sariya Summers; Lindsay Sapp and Tomi Beard; Reba Hazellief, and Emma Hazellief.


Chalo Nitka Royalty was featured in the parade in downtown Moore Haven on March 3.

Phone tax


refund


available
TALLAHASSEE - The Florida
Public Service Commission (PSC)
is encouraging taxpayers to take
advantage of a one-time-only tele-
phone tax refund. This tax season,
most taxpayers will easily qualify
for a standard telephone excise tax
refund, ranging from $30 to $60.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
reports more than 30 percent of
early filers in Florida have not
requested the refund, including
many people using tax preparers.
The federal government
stopped collecting the long-dis-
tance excise tax last August after
several federal court decisions
ruled the tax does not apply to
long-distance service as it is billed
today. Federal officials authorized a
one-time refund of the federal
excise tax collected on service
billed during the previous 41
months, stretching from the begin-
ning of March 2003 to' the end of
July 2006. The tax continues to
apply to local-only phone service.
To make the refund easier to fig-
ure, the federal government estab-
lished a standard refund amount,
based on personal exemptions,
ranging from $30 to $60. If taxpay-
ers have phone bills and other
records, they can request the actual
amount of excise tax paid. Taxpay-
ers only have to fill out one line on
their return, and they don't need to
present proof to the IRS.

CHS students revisit resolutions Lunch Menu


Clewiston High School students
were asked to write essays revisiting
their New Year's Resolution. Some
excerpts from those essays follow.
Did you make any New Year's
Resolutions? Since FCAT week has
been a grueling week for the stu-
dents, this might be a good time for
us all to reflect on the resolutions we
made for the NewYear of 2007. As a
community, you will be proud to
know that tenth graders have many
great plans on how to be successful.
Here are a few examples - enjoy!
(Some students wrote a letter to
themselves, like the first example.)
Hey Bibi, you have been very
good this year. You have cleaned
your room and have tried to keep it
clean. But you have to do other
things around the house. Some of
the things you have to improve on
are not hard to accomplish. Setting
goals this year would be a fantastic
idea. These goals are for your own


good. First, you have to respect
your sisters a little more, because
your sisters will fight with you - but
at last, they will always love you, no
matter what. Also you have to
respect yourself for who you are.
Another goal would be not to eat
junk food, because lately you have
been eating whatever gets in your
way! You also must stay away from
chocolate, 'cause your mom is
always telling you that you will get
"hipper!" The last goal you have to
set for yourself is to stay out of trou-
ble. You have gotten into lots and
lots of problems this year, so focus
on staying, out of trouble. Maybe
you should get a part time job.
These are your goals for this New
Year- Do them and life will get eas-
ier! Bibi to Bibi


Kala! You have been very good
this year, but there are some things
you need to work on, like academ-
ics, respect, and staying out of trou-
ble. First things first - academics.
You need to complete homework,
study for quizzes or tests, and work
on your GPA. Don't procrastinate
any of your work - just do the best
you can on academics. Next, work
on respect; you need to respect
your parents, your aunts and
uncles, and your sister. Finally,
work on staying out of trouble at
school, home, or anywhere. And if
you get into any trouble at school,
you sure know you will get in trou-
ble with your mom and dad, too!
Work on everything so that life will
be easier not just this year, but
always. Love, Kala.

CLEWISTON - Eastside Ele-
mentary School's Safety Patrol
,members have been very busy
planning their trip to Washing-
ton D.C.
, They have raised money
through fund raisers, including a
*car wash, Christmas greenery
and poinsettia sale.


The most recent fund raiser
was a drawing for 500 gallons of
gas donated by Mr. Carl Berner
of Berner Oil.
Safety Patrol members sold the
$5 tickets beginning in January and
the drawing was held on Feb. 14.
The lucky ticket holder was
Jami Weiss of Clewiston. Ms. Weiss
bought her ticket from Safety Patrol
member Paige Corley.


Eastside Elementary School's
Safety Patrol program said they
appreciate the generosity of Mr.
Berner and Berner Oil Company.
With his help, many members
were able to meet their financial
goal and will be able to visit
Washington, D.C.
There are 21 Safety Patrol mem-
bers, 15 parents and four chaper-
ones that will be going on the trip.

deputies and quickly learned this
was the life for him.
Mr. Rodriguez started as a cor-
rectional officer but was soon pro-
moted to a road patrol deputy with
the sheriff's office in 1991.
Four years later, his work so
impressed his supervisors that he
was promoted to the title of investi-
gator in the Criminal Investigations
Unit. For his work as an investiga-
tor, he was given an award by the
local Elk's Lodge recognizing him
as Deputy of the Year, 1998-1999.
It wouldn't be the only plus he'd
get that year, Mr. Rodriguez was
promoted to lieutenant, a capacity
he served for the next two years.
Shortly afterward, he was moved
yet again to captain, a role he con-
tinues to this day.
Though his superiors have often
recognized him for his work, Capt.
Rodriguez is as grateful to them.
According to Captain Rodriguez,
the Hendry County Sheriff's depart-
ment has allowed him to obtain a
lot of experience that has figured
tremendously into his career.
"I can't say really say anything
else other than I am working for
what I believe to be one of the
best, if not the best, sheriff's
department in the State of Flori-
da," Capt. Rodriguez said. "It is an


Forestry updates wildfire forecast


The outlook for spring weath-
er was updated on Wednesday,
March 7, by Florida Division of
Forestry (DOF) meteorologist.
The forecast now calls for a drier
than normal spring instead of
wetter than normal conditions
originally expected.
With local conditions already
very dry, this increases the expec-
tations of above normal wildfire
activity. Drier conditions mean
that if wildfires start they can grow
quickly, become more intense,
and be more difficult to suppress.

Department.


honor for me to work for this
department. That's why I have
been here for so many years and I
plan to stay for many more years
to come," he added.
Also helping him out along the
way, he is quick to say, is his wife.
The couple will celebrate their 30th
wedding anniversary this year.
"I was blessed to have such a
good wife," the captain said. "She
has supported me throughout my
career in law enforcement."
Throughout the way in his
career in law enforcement, Capt.
Rodriguez has been offered other
jobs. He never seriously thought


about taking them, always remem-
bering how well he'd been treated
in Hendry County.
He doesn't regret the decision
one bit.
"I have had the opportunity
numerous occasions to go to much
bigger departments in our sur-
rounding cities," said Capt.
Rodriguez. "I have decided not to go
because I believe I owe this depart-
ment and the community a lot."
"I have chosen to dedicate all
my time and effort to Hendry Coun-
ty," he said.

said. "I thought it was going to be
harder," he added.
"It was pretty long, but easy,"
said Krystal Giraldo, from Ms.
Paige's class.
Teachers will be eagerly await-
ing the results of the FCAT later this
year.
"This day was much more
exciting than what we expected to
be," said Ms. Paige, "The kids were
thankful and they truly enjoyed
their ice cream," she added.

This time of year, wildfires are
started by people. People can pre-
vent wildfire starts by being care-
ful any time they are working with
fire or any type of machinery or
equipment that can generate
sparks or heat.
This would include your car
and any off road vehicles.
Home areas should be main-
tained to increase the probability
that your home will survive a
wildfire disaster even if the fire
service cannot get to you in time.
The 30 feet immediately sur-


rounding your home should be
maintained so that you don't
invite a wildfire to your home.
This area should be kept mowed
and watered within the guidelines
of Water Management. Remove
any dead leaves, pine needles or
palm fronds that will bring a fire
close to you home. Be sure that
your roof is free of any debris that
will ignite from a nearby wildfire.
For more information, go to
the Florida Division of Forestry
web site at www.fl-dof.com or.

cream sundae at an ice cream party held for them last week.:

momentarily off his balance. He
ran to his bedroom to grab the
gun he keeps between his mat-
tress and box spring and
returned to find the man head-
ing in his direction.
The suspect saw Mr. Norman
carrying the .38 Special in his
hand and backed himself into a
corner, according to the report.
"That's when I started shoot-
ing," said Mr. Norman, who had
several cuts on his face and
head.
Mr. Norman said he shot at
the suspect three times, hitting
him twice, once in the chest and
once in the stomach.
Turning his attention to the
female intruder, he shot at her
twice and missed both times.
The suspects ran out of the
home and the woman lied down
with her partner on the drive-
way, the report continued. The
woman was yelling until officials
arrived.
Mr. Norman said he and his
wife didn't sleep the entire night
after the incident.
The most unnerving part of
the ordeal, Mr. Norman later
remembered, was hearing his
wife's yelling when he ran away
to grab his gun. The female sus-
pect had a knife and was telling

her to calm down, he said.
"She was screaming blood
murder," Mr. Norman said.
Because it was all too sud-
den, there wasn't much time to
think. He said he had been hid-
ing his gun underneath his bed
for so many years. One of his
friends in Belle Glade was shot
and killed in his home in another
break in, so Mr. Norman made it
a habit to keep his gun in his bed
since. He never thought he
would have to use it.

them outside," Mr. Norman said.
Still, he was impressed that
he didn't go down after being hit
multiple times on the head with
the tire iron.
"I've got a hard head," he
joked.
He could finally laugh that
nothing had happened to him or
his wife.
When he missed hitting the
female suspect, Mr. Norman
inadvertently shot to the side.
"I shot my refrigerator twice,"
he said. "I killed my refrigerator."
Luke Irons, 20, of St. Peters-
burg, and Chrisanthe Apergis,
20, of Seminole, were arrested in
connection with the break in.
Earlier this week Irons was
under guard in an area hospital's
intensive care unit, where he
was recovering from surgery.
According to information
from the Clewiston Police
Department, evidence suggests
the suspects may have been
involved in similar home inva-
sions in Manatee County and
Lakeland.
Mr. Norman said it didn't
matter to him if the suspect sur-
vived.
"He decided he wanted that
kind of life," said Mr. Norman.
"He took his chances. I don't
care one way or the other if he
lives."
