Clewiston PD tries
out new software

INI Florida
CLEWISTON - For many
people, state-of-the-art electron-
ics is a virtual door that opens to a
world of information; fun and
easier work flow. For many oth-
ers it's a baffling world they'd
rather avoid.
Hendry County law enforce-
ment - both the sheriff's office
and Clewiston Police Department
(CPD) - are taking advantage of
electronic advancements to put
them one step ahead in the strug-
gle to make residents safer. As the
nerve center of any law enforce-


ment agency, Communications
Centers (dispatch) are the intake
point of vital information from
residents in trouble, they relay
that information to the officers
sent to assist.
HCSO and CPD dispatch cen-
ters now feature some of the
most advanced communications
equipment at any law enforce-
ment agency.
For several years Caller ID pro-
vided the dispatcher with the
name and address of a 911 caller.
Now Positron's VIPER (Voice-
Over-IP for Emergency
Response) and Power 911 Map-
ping have taken that capability
even further.

Funds appropriated for new EOC


By Patty Brant
INI
Hendry County can begin the
process of building a new Emer-
gency Operations Center (EOC)
in earnest now. With the award of
$1,453,310 (up to $901,512 in
General Revenue Funds and up to
$551,798 in Hazard Mitigation
Grant Program funds) plus
$2,030,336 budgeted from the
county's CDBG Disaster Recovery
Initiative, there is now some
$3,483,646 to work with.
The EOC is the central com-
mand post for official activities
during a declared emergency. For
years designated personnel from
essential services, including
fire/rescue, law enforcement,
water, communications and oth-
ers, worked out of cramped quar-
ters in the sheriff's office confer-
ence room when activated for an
emergency.
A site has yet to be chosen, but
the "most ideal," according to
Hendry County Director of Grants

does not have a design as yet, but
a working group is visiting EOC's
in Highlands County, Cape Coral,
Lee and Palm Beach counties to
gather information and ideas.
Although there is no design,
the building is conceived as about
6,450 square feet with a total cost
of $3.34 million, revised from the
original figure of $3.8 million.

Lcre tIm Ic


Chances are you know many or most of your neighbors and
community leaders by name. You, know where to meet for
social events, when school lets out and perhaps when the
trains tend to run. To the best of our ability Florida Power &
Light Company wants to make sure that the things most
important to your quality of life don't change, but only get
better.

To meet a growing demand for electricity and provide an ade-
quate supply of fuel FPL is proposing to build an advanced
technology coal plant. It would be located approximately five
miles northwest of Moore Haven and its fuel would arrive by
railroad.

The advanced technology that we plan to use requires
environmentally-preferred coals that are low in sulfur, ash and
chlorine. The FPL Glades Power Park site is adjacent to an
existing rail line. We plan to use the local SCFE railroad and
the CSX and FEC railroads to deliver fuel to the site.


Keeping train traffic delays to a minimum

Regardless of the supplier, we recognize that the community is
most interested in having us minimize the time associated
with train crossings as well as the number of trains coming
and going. While we aren't in a position to finalize suppliers
or routes until we first earn approval for the new plant, we are
fully committed to making as little impact on your daily
driving routines as possible.


So, for example, should you encounter a train bound for the
plant, the time you might spend stopped at a crossing would
be between 2 and one-half and five minutes. Those fuel trains
will be made up of approximately 85-125 cars moving at
speeds between 20 and 40 miles per hour. And we expect, on
average, one or two coal trains a day making round trips in
and out of the plant site. Some smaller trains of approximately
40 cars will be needed less often to deliver limestone and
remove marketable byproducts like gypsum.

Also important is that the track to be added at the plant site
will be enclosed completely within the plant property.

FPL is committed to a long-term partnership with the
communities where our facilities are located. The Glades and
Hendry communities will be no exception. We want our
future neighbors to be involved throughout the planning
stages of this project. If you have additional questions about
potential train traffic locally, please call us at 888-256-2206.

us online at www.FPL.com/gladespower.

Clewiston Museum celebrates Florida heritage month


CLEWISTON - Florida has
designated the period March 15
through April 15 Florida Heritage
Month - A Celebration of Flori-
da's Spirit. The goal is to encour-
age a better understanding of
and appreciation for Florida's
history and culture among the
people of our state. This month-
long tribute will heighten aware-
ness of our state's rich cultural
heritage, celebrating its historical
sites, museums, libraries, and
the visual and performing arts.


In observance of this. pro-
gram, The Clewiston Museum
will provide a special program
on early Florida ranching featur-
ing Nancy Dale, PhD, published
author and writer. The event will
be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March
29 in the museum's theater. The
event is free and open to the
public. However, seating is limit-
ed and reservations can be made
by contacting the museum at
983-2879 or via email at clewis-
tonmusuem@earthlink.net.


Dr. Dale will make a short
presentation on the early Florida
cracker cowboys throughout the
central ranching region of South
Florida. The program will
include insights into the families
that comprise the pioneer ranch-
es in the area and how they real-
ly lived in those earlier days.
Those days were marked by
open rangelands with no fence
allowed, free roaming herds and
cow hunters who annually
would cover wide expanses of


the state to round up the cattle of
each rancher to drive them to
markets on the east and west
coasts.
Dr. Dale's latest book, Would
Do, Could Do and Made Do, is a
living tribute and memorial to
the lessons inscribed by those
pioneer ranchers for their fami-
lies and for future generations of
Floridians. It tells how these
ranchers lived a unique lifestyle
in a bygone era and also how,, in
many ways, their heritage con-


tinues today. Clewiston's Stitt
Family is one of those featured in
the book, as well as Glades
County pioneer rancher Tommy
Bronson, Immokalee's- Bobby
Roberts, and Kenansville's Doug
Partin.
Following the presentation,
attendees will be invited to tour
the museum's exhibit hall and
refreshments will be served. Dr.
Dale will also be available for a
book signing of her new book
and to answer questions.


Other published works of Dr.
Dale are Where the Swallowtail
Kite Soars and The Tattered Flag.

HRMC Foundation House gets a new look


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
The Hendry Regional Medical
Center (HRMC) Foundation
House has been receiving quite
a bit of attention lately. The City
of Clewiston, which leases the
building to the Foundation,
decided to take on the project of
beautifying the property. Sean
Scheffler coordinated the efforts,
along with his street department
crew. Also, the Cusas Group,
from CampE-Tu-Makee, assisted
in the landscaping project.
As one can see, the grounds
have a completely different
appearance - they are now
beautifully landscaped, with'
plants graciously provided by
the Clewiston Garden Club. In
addition, the City has built a
handicapped ramp and replaced
the roof of the building. The

The Hendry Regional Medical Center has been given a "lift"
with beautiful new landscaping, a new sign, a new handi-
capped ramp, a new roof and other renovations thanks to the
efforts of several local businesses and organizations.
Foundation sign, originally Printing, has been redesigned
donated by David Lyons of Lyons and relocated.


As people are viewing the
recent activity surrounding the
Foundation House, many are
inquiring about what the HRMC
Foundation is all about. The
Foundation's purpose is to raise
charitable funds as a fon-profit,
501(c)(3) corporation and to
direct those funds to the special
projects of Hendry Regional
Medical Center. The first project
will be the construction of a new
Emergency Room, Laboratory
and Surgery Suite in Clewiston
as well as an Urgent Care Center
to be located in LaBelle. The
Foundation is comprised of
eighteen members; all are local
community leaders who provide
diversified talents, interests and
strengths to the Foundation. For
more information, call Glenda
Wilson, the Foundation Execu-
tive Director, at (863) 983-2735.

NOTICE OF COMMISSION HEARING AND PREHEARING
FLORIDA PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION
DOCKET NO. 070098-El


PETITION TO DETERMINE NEED FOR FPL GLADES POWER PARK UNITS 1
AND 2 ELECTRICAL POWER PLANT By FLORIDA POWER & LIGHT COMPANY
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a hearing will be held before the Florida Public Service
Commission in the above docket regarding the petition of Florida Power & Light Company
(FPL) for determination of need for electrical power plants, at the following time and place:
Monday - Tuesday, April 16-17, 2007, 9:30 a.m.
Betty Easley Conference Center, Room 148
4075 Esplanade Way
Tallahassee, Florida
PURPOSE AND PROCEDURE
The purpose of this hearing will be for the Commission to take final action to determine the need, pur-
suant to Section 403.519, Florida Statutes, for FPL's proposed electrical power plants in Glades County,
Florida. This proceeding shall (1) allow FPL to present evidence and testimony in support of its
petition for a determination of need for its proposed electrical power plants; (2) permit any intervenors
to present testimony and exhibits concerning this matter; (3) permit members of the public who are
not parties to the need determination proceeding the opportunity to present testimony concerning this
matter; and (4) allow for such other purposes as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The proceedings will be governed by the provisions of Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, Section 403.519,
Florida Statutes, and Chapters 25-22 and 25-106, Florida Administrative Code.
Under Section 403.519, Florida Statutes, the Commission is the sole forum for the determination of
need for the proposed electrical power plants. In making its determination, the Commission must take
into account the need for electric system reliability and integrity, the need for adequate electricity at
a reasonable cost, the need for fuel diversity and supply reliability, and whether the proposed plant
expansions are the most cost-effective alternative available. In addition, the Commission must expressly
consider the conservation measures taken by or reasonably available to FPL which might mitigate the
need for the proposed plants and may consider other matters within its jurisdiction which it deems
relevant. The Commission's determination of need for the proposed plants shall create a presumption
of public need and necessity and shall serve as the Commission's report required by subsection
403.507(2)(a)2, Florida Statutes. An order entered by the Commission pursuant to this hearing shall
constitute final agency action.
Only issues relating to the need for the proposed power plants will be heard at this hearing. Separate
public hearings will be held before the Division of Administrative Hearings at a later date to consider
environmental and other impacts of the proposed plants and associated facilities.
Members of the public who are not parties to the need determination proceeding will have an oppor-
tunity to present testimony regarding the need for the proposed plants, All members of the public who
wish to offer testimony should be present at the beginning of the hearing, 9:30 a.m., Monday, April
16, 2007. All witnesses will be sworn in and will be subject to cross-examination at the conclusion of
their testimony. By providing public testimony, a person does not become a party to the proceeding.
Anyone wishing to become a party to this need determination proceeding should file an appropriate
petition pursuant to Rule 25-22.039, Florida Administrative Code, with the Director of the
Commission's Division of the Commission Clerk and Administrative Services at the address listed
below. Copies of the petition should be sent by mail to all parties. Those wishing to intervene in these
proceedings, unless appearing on their own behalf, must be represented by an attorney or other person
who can be determined to be a qualified representative pursuant to Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, and
Rule 28-106.106, Florida Administrative Code. Petitions for leave to intervene must be filed at least
five (5) days before the final hearing, must conform with Rule 28-106.201(2), Florida Administrative
Code, and must include allegations sufficient to demonstrate that the intervenor is entitled to partici-
pate in the proceeding as a matter of constitutional or statutory right or pursuant to Commission rule,
or that the substantial interests of the intervenor are subject to determination or will be affected
through the hearing.


Written comments regarding the need for the proposed plants and associated facilities may be sent to
the Commission at the following address:
Blanca S. Bay6, Director
Division of the Commission Clerk and Administrative Services

Re: Docket No. 070098-EI

GENERAL LOCATION AND PROJECT DESCRIPTION

east of the town of Moore Haven in an unincorporated area of Glades County, as well as associated
electric transmission facilities located in Hendry County, Palm Beach County, and Broward County.
The proposed in-service dates for the proposed units are June 1, 2013 and June 1, 2014. FPL indicates
that it-intends to pursue permitting on a schedule to allow for earlier in-service dates of late 2012 or
early 2013 for unit 1, and late 2013 or early 2014 for unit 2, if possible.
PREHEARING CONFERENCE
A prehearing conference will be held at the following time and place:
Thursday, April 5, 2007, at 9:30 AM
Room 148, Betty Easley Conference Center
4075 Esplanade Way
Tallahassee, Florida
The purpose of this prehearing conference is: (1) to define and limit, if possible, the number of issues;
(2) to determine the parties' positions on the.issues; (3) to determine what facts, if any, may be stipulated;
(4) to dispose of any motions or other matters that may be pending; and (5) to consider any other
matters that may aid in the disposition of this case.

Thousands of pounds of cane where scattered all over U.S. 27 March 14 after the semi truck
driven by an employee of Sugarland Harvesting in Clewiston failed to stop at a red flashing
traffic signal.

to overturn into the street, spilling
the sugar cane it carried across the
road.
Mr. Gonzalez also lost control of
his vehicle and came to a final stop
facing east on U.S. 27 and essential-
ly blocking all lanes northbound on
the road.
Due to the debris and the trucks
blocking the roads, all traffic head-
ing south on U.S. 27 was blocked
in both directions for more than
four hours until the road was
cleared later in the day.
Mr. Gonzalez was transported
to Hendry Regional Center in
Clewiston for treatment of minor
injuries; Mr. Cruz was airlifted to
Lee Memorial Hospital in Ft. Myers
after reportedly suffering serious
injuries.
According to the son of the
transport driver, who was reached
by telephone, his father was deliv-

The Power Map can allow the
dispatcher to pinpoint a cell phone
caller (with GPS capability) to with-
in one foot of his position.
Older cell phones do not have
this capability.
The advantage is obvious.
Someone calling 911 on a cell
phone can be located immediately
on the VIPER computer screen so
the dispatcher can send help exact-
lywhere it's needed.
The map can also show the dis-
patcher an aerial view of an entire
city, all the way down to a specific
house, including outbuildings and
trees. The dispatcher can then
advise an officer of possible hiding
places, providing additional securi-
ty for an officer searching for a sus-
pect at night.
The Clewiston Police Depart-
ment was the first agency in

Community Links. Individual Voices.


By MaryAnn Morris
INI
From Jan. 1 to Feb. 28, 'there
were 604 wildfires in Florida and
58,355 acres have burned. If those
acreage numbers are something
you can't get your mind around,
think of it as slightly over 91 square
miles: a strip of land one mile
across and 91 plus miles long.
Should Floridians be "protect-
ed" from the burning of the land?
Why is there so much here burning
in Florida?
"Protection" is a relative term
and the first rule of protection is to
realize that you live in Florida. Flori-
da is different. Its seasons are differ-
ent. You have "wet" season and
"dry" season within natural cycles
of drought years and wet years. Its
land is open and flat.
"Every two to five years the
open prairies and pine flatwoods
will naturally burn," says Dale Arm-
strong, Senior Forester at the Okee-
chobee District of the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry. Mr. Armstrong
covers six counties: Okeechobee,
Highlands, Indian River, Martin, St.
Lucie and Glades Counties.
"There are things all Floridians
should know and practice here,
where fire is a natural part of life,"
he continued.
During the dry season there is
little rain, little humidity in the air
and windy/breezy days. All of this
makes for dry land. In January
there was frost, which killed a lot of
green vegetation, turning it brown
and dry. The sandy soil, with no
moisture added, has dried .out
deeper and deeper and deeper.
Native plants, adapted to the
wet/dry season cycles are not
growing, many are not green at all.
These conditions have turned
ordinary grasses and underbrush
pastures, woods and unkempt
vacant lots into dry tinder where a
spark from a vehicle, machine or
careless windblown ash, will ignite
and spread, fanned by the breezes
that sweep across.
Florida's ecology depends on
fire to sweep clean the soil so seeds
of new plants can sprout to provide
forage for the deer, rabbits and
other animals that depend on
nature to feed them. When there is
food, they come and keep Florida's


ecology diverse and healthy.
Before Florida became so
populated, thousands, perhaps
millions of acres naturally
burned each year, but more and
more acreage is bounded by
houses, and less and less acreage
burns naturally.
"This has allowed, the under-
brush to become high and thick, to
the point of being almost impene-
trable. Without a great deal of
awareness, alertness and care it
can be a hazard to lives and proper-
ty," said Mr. Armstrong.
Protect your home
from wildfire
Over the past 50 years, more
and more Floridians have moved
out of our cities to build homes
and businesses in outlying fringe
areas technically known as the
wildland/urban interface. In fact,
today almost a third of Florida's
population lives in interface areas
where homes, sheds and barns
intermingle with forests and wild-
lands. Residents here, however,
usually don't realize they may live
too "close to nature"; they may, in
fact, be "Living on the Edge" of a
wildfire disaster.
On average, Florida experi-
ences the second highest num-
ber of wildfires in the nation.
During dry years, Florida experi-
ences severe wildfires - wild-
fires that destroy homes, disrupt
people's lives and impact the
State's economy.
The simple truth is that few fire
departments have adequate
resources to protect every home in
the wildland/urban interface.
Homeowners must become
partners in fire protection. But
there is also an important role for
architects who design homes,
builders, insurance agents, elected
officials, planners, and educators
- everyone who helps shape our
communities.
Areas where homes and forests
meet or mix together are the "wild-
land/urban interface." Homes in
these locations need special con-
sideration.
You and your neighbors can
take action to protect your com-
munity from wildfire dangers.
Understand the factors that can
make a neighborhood either less


or more vulnerable to a wildfire
with the Hazard & Wildfire Risk
Assessment Score sheet.
Is your home
'Firewise'?
Learn about the two most vul-
nerable parts of a home, the
"home ignition zone" for wildfires
and defensible space.
How homes can be designed,
built and maintained to withstand
wildfire.
A "defensible space" of at least
30 feet in any direction around your
home increases the likelihood that
a home will survive a wildfire even
in the absence of firefighters. Learn
how to utilize these landscaping
techniques online at http://www.fl-
dof.com/wildfire/index.html.
Your community or neighbor-
hood can help with local preven-
tion and reduced losses to wild-.
land/urban interface fire by
participating in this national pro-
gram.
Older, even wood-frame home
in high wildfire hazard areas can be
modified and made Firewise by
creating a "defensible space"
around the structure for wildfire
protection without losing the
"woodsy" look and feel.
"Clean the debris out of your
gutters and off your roof," said Dale
Armstrong.
Much of what is known about
protecting homes from wildland
fire is based upon the work of Jack
Cohen, a Fire Research Scientist at
the U.S. Forest Service Fire Lab in
Missoula, Mont. Mr. Cohen has
been studying wildfires for almost
30 years. His research and field
investigations support some inter-
esting explanations for home loss-
es associated with wildland/urban
interface fires. Mr. Cohen found
that most willdland/urban inter-
face homes are lost because of
ignitions associated with the two
most vulnerable parts of a home:
* The roof, and gutters; and,
* The area immediately sur-
rounding the structure.
Mr. Cohen's research results
indicate that home ignitions ugual-
ly occur over relatively short dis-
tances - tens of yards, not hun-
dreds of feet from little things
associated with either:
* Fire brands landing on and

picnic at the complex under the sun. The annual picnic is sponsored by coordinators
Alfonzo Funderburk and Marcus Saddler. The seniors were treated to barbeque ribs, pota-

Wildfire danger increases with lack of rain


The risk of wildfire continues
to increase as recent rainfall pre-
dicted for our area left on aver-
age, a mere quarter of an inch.
Dryness as. measured by the
KBDI (Keetch-Byram Drought
Index) is well above normal lev-
els for this time of the year. The
Index runs from zero - 800 with
zero indicating the ground is
fully saturated. 800 indicates dry,
desert like soil conditions. The
average KBDI for the local dis-
trict which includes Lee, Collier
and Hendry County, currently
stands at 652.

Many areas in the district
including Lehigh Acres in Lee
County are already above 700.
Once the KBDI climbs above
normal levels wildfires spread
more quickly, become more
intense and are more difficult to
control. Dryness will continue to
increase unless significant rain-
fall is received - something that is
not expected until the summer
rain pattern begins.
The number of wildfires in
the district has increased sharply.
During the first half of March, the
DOF district has responded to 31


wildfires throughout this 3 coun-
ty area. This compares to our
historical average of 29 wildfires
for the entire month of March.
This time of the year, wildfires
are caused by people, either
because of carelessness or start-
ed intentionally. Everyone needs
to use extreme care every time
they use anything involving a
flame or use any type of machin-
ery that can cause a spark:
grinders, welding equipment,
cars parking on grass and don't
take your ATV off trail into the
rough, they can spark, too.


around the structure, or
* Flames from slow-moving,
low-intensity surface fires contact-
ing flammable portions of the
structure.
This means that the homeown-
er can play a significant role in
reducing home losses from wild-
fires by reducing fuels and through
careful landscaping in what Cohen
calls the "home ignition zone', an
area that extends outward from the
home 100 - 200 feet in all direc-
tions. Research has shown that the
home ignition zone principally
determines the potential for home
ignitions during severe wildfires.
Case studies indicate that the
most critical area is a zone of
"defensible space" within 30 feet of
the structure.
Maintaining a lean, clean and
green landscape within 30 feet of a
structure can make a significant
difference in whether it survives a
wildfire. The important thing is that
action must be taken before wild-
fire threatens.
* Lean - only allow small
amounts of flammable vegetation;
* Clean - no accumulations of
dead vegetation; and,
* Green - plants are healthy and
green.
Reducing fuel within the defen-
sible space means creating a land-
scape that breaks up the continuity
of brush and other vegetation that
could bring wildfire in contact with
any flammable portion of the struc-
ture.
This may involve:
* Eliminating any flammable
vegetation in contact with the
structure;
* Thinning out trees and shrubs
so there is 10 to 15 feet between
the tree crowns;
* Pruning tree limbs to a height
of 6to 10 feet;
* Replacing highly-flammable
landscape material with plant
materials having a higher water
content;
* Replacing flammable mulch
adjacent the structure with gravel
or rock;
* Eliminating "ladder fuels"
near the structure that might carry
a surface fire to the roof or eaves.
Fire is a natural part of our
Florida ecosystems. It is not a
matter of if we are going to have
wildfires, but when will we have
wildfires and at what intensity.
Homeowners must assume a
major role in wildfire protection
by taking action to reduce the
ignitability of their homes before
the threat of a wildfire.

Good manners are going to the dogs


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
It was a long hard day, I was
dragging until I reached the front
door, Pepper, my Sheltie-hound
mix greeted me
with excite-
ment. As I
plopped down
in the easy
chair, she rested
her head on my
lap and nuzzled
me. It wasn't
long until my
hand was inch- John
ing toward the Hicks
dog and I began
to stroke her fur. Within minutes I
was feeling better. What is it about
dogs that evokes such a positive
response? How are they able to
provide such comfort and reassur-
ance?
I firmly believe that God put
dogs on earth to remind us of some
important truths. What He taught
us is not only reinforced by Scrip-
ture, but by simply looking at the
family pet. The point? Perhaps we


should try a little harder to be
"more dogly" in our daily lives in
order to be more Godly. Here are
10 dog-truths that might help us:
1. Greet loved ones with wag-
ging tail, Nothing is more important
than feeling loved and there's no
creature that does it better than a
dog. The wagging tail affirms that
this is where we belong. This is our
home, where we live, where we're
safe and where we're loved.
2. Eat with gusto and enthusi-
asm. Dogs eat with a passion, lick-
ing the dish clean until every last
scent of gravy is gone. Dogs know
that eating is a celebration of life.
Breaking bread together is holy. To
nourish the body is not a chore, but
a sacrament. At meals, animosities
are dissipated, barriers are broken
down and friendships are renewed
and strengthened. So, eat with
gusto. Enjoy all the flavors and
spices of creation.
3. On hot days, drink lots of
water and lie under a shady tree.
Relax, slow down and enjoy. Give
yourself a time out. Opt out, unplug
and get lazy.
4. Run, romp and play daily.


Physical exercise is as important for
the soul as it is for the body. No dis-
ciple of Christ can be as faithful and
effective when the body is run
down and health is unnecessarily
poor, When we learn how to play
ahd stretch and get in some exer-
cise we'll feel better from the inside
out.
5. Be loyal. Loyalty is a good
thing, and if dogs are nothing else,
they are loyal. Loyalty is a critical
element of discipleship, for it
speaks to our relationship with our
spouse, our vocation, our commu-
nity, our friends, and our God.
6. When you're happy, dance
around and wag your tail. Thank-
fulness and celebration are impor-
tant dynamics for successful and
healthy living. Joyfulness is a gift we
give ourselves that enables us to
affirm the essential goodness of
life. Even when adversity strikes,
our inner joy helps us maintain our
perspective and carries us through
the low moments.
7. If someone is having a bad
day, sit close by and nuzzle gently.
We all have bad days. We all need
encouragement and affirmation.


When we are depressed, it takes
only a quiet word, a gentle touch to
bring us around.
8. No matter how harshly you're
scolded, don't pout - run back and
make friends, Carrying grudges
makes life a grind, Make friends
and keep them, Overlook faults
and assume the best. Don't keep a
scorecard of rights and wrongs.
Don't take offense.
9. Avoid biting when a simple
growl will do. We do not need to
injure others by what we say or do.
We can be strong with love; firm
with kindness.
10. Bark with your buddies.
Barking is an act of commonality.
Barking says we belong in this
together. We are one.
Think about the kind of ministry
we would have in our churches,
homes, schools, and communities
if we showed doglike qualities like
loyalty and obedience, and offer
comfort and a sense of well-being.
What if we were consistently more
humble, more loving, more grate-
ful, more joyful and more kind-
hearted? Perhaps it is time we go to
the dogs!


There should be communion every Sunday!


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Acts 20:7 says, "And upon the
first day of the week when the
disciples come together to
BREAK BREAD, Paul preached
unto them..."
Here we have an example and
pattern authority for the weekly
observance of the Lord's Supper.
If it were left entirely up the
account of Jesus instituting the
Lord's Supper (Matthew 26:26-
29), we would be at a loss as to
knowing the frequency we
should partake of this supper.
However, Jesus promised the
Apostles that not only would the
Holy Spirit bring all things to their
remembrance (John 14:16), he
would guide them into all unre-
vealed religious truth (John
16:13). Now in Acts 20:7 the
church at Troas, operating under
the very sight of an inspired apos-
tle, came together on the first day
of the week "to BREAK BREAD."
It is incidental that the apostle
Paul was there and preached; the
purpose of their coming together
was to have the Lord's Supper.
Every week has a first day and is
implied that this was their cus-
tomary practice. Under the Old
Testament the Jews were com-
manded to "Remember the Sab-
bath day, to keep it holy." They
didn't ask, "Which Sabbath (sev-
enth) day?" Every week had a
seventh day and they understood
this to mean they should keep
every Sabbath unto God. This
same is true as we read Acts 20:7
of the Lord's Supper on the first
day of the week.
We are not left to this Scrip-
ture only for evidence of the
practice of weekly communion;
it is evident in I Corinthians. The
church at Corinth was a problem
church rented asunder by party-
ism, immorality, and the abuse of
divine worship. It seems they had
reduced the Lord's Supper to a
drunken feast. Notice: "When ye
come together therefore into one
place, this is not to eat the Lord's
Supper. For in eating every one
taketh before other his own sup-
per: and one is hungry and
another drunken" (I Cor. 11:20-
21). The Amplified New Testa-
ment's application of verse 20 is
a little plainer. "So when you
gather for your meetings, it is not
the supper instituted by the Lord
that you eat." In other words,


Religion Briefs


they were supposedly observing
the Lord's Supper, but had
reduced it to a common meal
and a drunken feast. What we
wish to emphasize is that they
were doing this "WHEN" they
came together; in other words,
every time they were regularly
assembled. They were keeping
the Lord's Supper, although in a
greatly degenerated fashion,
every time that the church met.
When was the regular meeting
time? If we can establish this, we
can know the frequency of the
Lord's Supper observance. 1 Cor.
16:2 gives the answer: "upon the
first day of the week.'
It is also interesting to note
and not without significance,
that the Lord's Supper was
observed on the day the church
was established the day of Pente-
cost (Acts 2). On what day of the
week was this Jewish holy day
celebrated? Check Leviticus
23:15, 16. Seven Sabbaths fol-
lowed the Passover and the next
day after the seventh Sabbath
was Pentecost (50th). Thus, it
was celebrated on the first day of
the week. The church had its
beginning on this day and the
church first observed the Lord's
Supper on this day. Having refer-
ence to their worship on this day
the record reads, "And the con-
tinued steadfastly in the Apostle's
doctrine and fellowship,'and in
BREAKING OF BREAD and in
prayers" (Acts 2:42).
Furthermore, it is a fact from
outside history that the early
church observed the Lord's Sup-
per EVERY Lord's Day and com-
petent scholarship (even denom-
inational scholarship) is agreed
to this. The following as exam-
ples will illustrates the latter.
These are comments made by
denominational scholars (in
their well-known commentaries)
on Acts 20:7, explaining why the
church at Troas came together
on the first day of the week.
ALBERT BARNES (Presbyter-
ian): "Evidently to celebrate the
Lord's Supper...It is possible that
the apostles and early Christians
celebrated the Lord's Supper
EVERY LORD'S DAY."
ADAM CLARK (Methodist):
"To break the Eucharist, as the
Syriac has it: intimating by this
that they were accustomed to
giving the Holy Sacrament on
EACH LORD'S DAY."


In the light of this array of
information, we are made to ask
why modern "churches" are not
having the Lord's Supper every
Lord's day. Obviously this is a
neglected Scriptural teaching
which has been replaced by tradi-
tion. But, as we seeking unre-
servedly to return to the divine


pattern to be simply the Lord's
"New Testament" church, we will
have this supper each Lord's day
as the very center of our worship.
Faithful Christians will be there to
remember the supreme sacrifice
made for their salvation...to wor-
ship the Lord in the way he
would have them worship.
