Man arrested for body in canal


Victim's husband
is held in jail

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
IMMOKALEE - Donald
Nicholson, 40, of Immokalee was
arrested Tuesday, April 3, and
charged with second-degree mur-
der in connection with the murder
of his wife.
His wife's body was found by
Hendry County Sheriff's deputies
floating in a canal on C.R. 833. A


man riding in
the back of a
truck spotted
the body in the
canal and alert- "



son, who had Donald
been reported Nicholson
Missing by
family members just days before.
Collier County Sheriff's investiga-
tors confirmed the identity.


According to investigators in
Collier County, Sandra had been
reported missing on the night of
March 29, when a co-worker of
hers reported that she failed to
show up for work. The co-work-
er told investigators she had
been instructed by Sandra to
alert authorities if she ever failed
to show, because her husband,
according to information pro-
vided by Collier County, had a
"bad temper."
Officials say the Nicholsons
were in the middle of a turbulent
divorce.


Easter was here: Kids celebrate holiday


INIcldeybis Gonzalez
Riley Taylor, Kendall Hilyer and Lexus Taylor were enjoying the hunt for Easter eggs on
Easter Sunday, April 8, at Pioneer Park, and the "yummy" food as well.


Kendall Hilyer was busy looking for hidden eggs at Easter Sunday's Cook out at the
Pioneer Park on Sunday, April 8.


Her mother told officers she
was in fear for Sandra's life after
family members found her purse
and prescription glasses - the lat-
ter item being something she
never left behind because of her,
poor eyesight. The purse also con-
tained Sandra's checkbook, ID
card and cellular phone.
Her father, after visiting San-
dra's home to find out where she
had gone, told investigators he had
seen a pillow stained with what
appeared to be blood in the wash-
ing machine. A spot on Sandra's
bed that appeared to have been


cleaned was still wet.
As investigators continued
combing the area for clues, San-
dra's daughter told them she had
heard her mother and the suspect
arguing in their bedroom the night
before her disappearance. Sud-
denly, she said, it became quiet in
the bedroom and later woke up to
the sound of the washing machine
being turned on at about 4 a.m.
the next morning.
The suspect told his children

charge for



an Ocala man


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - An Ocala
man was arrested in Clewiston,
accused of stabbing another
man to death. The suspect was
apprehended locally days after
the incident happened.
On Thursday, March 29, the
Hendry County Sheriff Office,
along with Clewiston and
Ocala Police officers, arrested
Abel Vasquez, 24, while he was
asleep inside a home on Deane
Duff Street in Clewiston.
According to local law
enforcement officials, Vasquez
was taken to jail without inci-
dent that morning.


The suspect, they said, may
be linked to a homicide case
that occurred - in Ocala in
March.
Investigators with the Ocala
Police Department said
Vasquez was involved in an
argument with another man.
The victim, Eladio Juarez, 20,
defended the man with whom
the suspect was arguing.
That's when witnesses say
the suspect and Juarez got
into a confrontation. They
.repqrotedly,,.went behind :an
apartment building, where
they began to fight.
According to the report,

200 students at the Clewiston

to explore their career and col-
lege options during the annual
career day held on Thursday,
March 29 in the high school

on tables and students touring
each area.
Participating at career day
were law enforcement offi-
cers, representatives of the dif-
ferent branches of the military,
as well as other local business
people. The 48 presenters
included the Clewiston Police
Department, Hendry Regional


Medical Center, U.S. Sugar and
Edison College, to name a few.
Juniors and seniors unde-
cided about their future
endeavors had the chance to
ask questions of each presen-
ter and leave with information
about the different careers.
They showed a lot of interest
during the nearly four-hour
event.
"I think the career day went
absolutely well," said Clewis-
ton High School Principal Dr.
Robert Egley. "Career day is
one of the most popular
school events every year."
According to the principal,
the event is one of the most
worthwhile activities the
school offers. It gives students

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - After a suc-
cessful first outing last year, the
City of Clewiston is again joining
with the community for the sec-
ond annual spring clean up effort
leading up to the annual sugar
festival.
Last year, the participants
joined to clear the city of unsightly

this year, during the spring clean-
ing event on Saturday, April 14.

a.m. that Saturday. Participants
will meet up at the Clewiston
Youth Center, 110 W. Osceola
Ave., where they will receive "Lit-
ter Bugs Me" T-shirts and team
assignments. They will also be
treated to a complimentary conti-
nental.breakfast.
Saturday's clean-up will run
from morning until noon. A free
lunch will be served to all the vol-
unteers.
City officials are hoping to


drum up support for the effort,
and are encouraging as many res-
idents .as are interested to partici-
pate.
Volunteers should bring drink-
ing water; sunscreen, work
gloves, avisor hat, sunglasses and
anything else they need to stay
comfortable throughout the
event.
But officials say it won't be an
event without some fun.
"The volunteer or team that
brings in the most unusual piece
of trash, will be awarded a tro-
phy," said Mrs. Pittman. Perhaps
someone will find a treasure
buried in all the trash.
Mayor Mali Chamness is also
eager to take part in the event.
"I am very excited," said Mayor
Chamness. "I'm looking forward
to seeing Clewiston cleaner."
According to the mayor, this
year more than 100 adults and
nearly 50 children have already
signed up to take part. in the
spring cleaning event.
"We want to make Clewiston
look cleaner," said Mayor Cham-
ness, "not only for*the visitors but
for those of us who live here as
well," she added.
Besides, the mayor said, "Litter
does bug me."

PSC orders refunds


to Verizon customers


TALLAHASSEE - The Florida
Public Service Commission
(PSC) has directed Verizon Flori-
da LLC (Verizon) to refund
approximately $63,000 to the
company's customers. Accord-
ing to the results of a recent PSC
service quality inspection, Veri-
zon failed to issue rebates to
thousands of qualified cus-
tomers between June 1, 2005,
and Feb. 7, 2007.
"The Commission regularly
conducts comprehensive serv-
ice quality inspections of Flori-
da's regulated telecommunica-
tions carriers to ensure
ratepayers are receiving safe,
affordable, and reliable service,"
said PSC Chairman Lisa Polak
Edgar. "PSC staff work diligently
to identify areas of concern for
consumers and guide service
providers appropriately."
As a part of the PSC service
quality evaluation program, staff
discovered that Verizon did not
automatically issue rebates to
customers who experienced
more than 24 hours of interrupt-
ed service. Verizon's subsequent
investigation revealed a number
of factors contributed to the
missed rebates, including pro-
gramming and human errors.
At the PSC's direction, Veri-
zon has corrected the software
errors and retrained its employ-
ees. Commissioners today
approved the company's refund
proposal, which is estimated to
take six months to complete.
Verizon will begin issuing the
credits during the first billing
cycle in April 2007. Based on the
average credit per customer,
Verizon estimates the total
refund amount to' be approxi-
mately $63,000. Verizon will
report the actual total of the
rebates in its final report to be

Air Force Band to play Belle Glade


Clewiston Middle
School invites
U.S. Air Force band

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE - It isn't every
day that one of the best sym-
phonic bands in the country
plays in the Glades. Needless to
say, organizers of the concert are
hopeful that local residents will
come out this Saturday to sup-
port the event.
When Luke Hall, Clewiston
Middle School's band director,
first heard that the U.S. Air Force
Band had a tour scheduled in the
South Florida area, on a whim
he decided he'd try his chances
at calling the organization and
seeing whether they would be
interested in playing in Clewis-
ton or Belle Glade for free -
something that seemed like a
long-shot at first.


"It's wonderful. It's a free opportunity for people
to see the finesse of the band, their magnitude
and skill. It shouldn't be missed."
- Laura Smith,
Clewiston band boosters


When the Air Force Band
called back to say they were
interested, Luke Hall was ecstat-
ic.
"I was very excited about it,"
remembered Mr. Hall. "This is
one of the world's premier sym-
phonic bands. It's a great oppor-
tunity."
The band's 35-voice choir
and presidential honor guard
will be playing at a concert to be
held at Glades Central Commu-
nity High School's gymnasium.
The doors are scheduled to open
at 3 p.m., while the actual con-
cert is slated to begin at 4 p.m.
According to Mr. Hall, the per-
formance is about two hours in

length, with the band perform-
ing everything from contempo-
rary movie music, to pops
music, to classical - a wide vari-
ety of music.
For Mr. Hall, whose own stu-
dents will attend the perform-
ance, the concert will serve to
show the kids what they can
accomplish if they put their
minds to it.
"These are the cream of the
crop musicians, they're in regu-
lar demand as performers," said
Mr. Hall. "My kids are coming
out en masse."
The Air Force Band is one of
the five major branches of sym-
phonic bands associated with


the various branches of the mili-
tary, with the U.S. Marine Band
being another one of the more
famous of the groups.
Having the Air Force Band
play locally, Mr. Hall said, is
something that as many resi-
dents as possible should take
advantage of. Currently, only a
fraction of the available tickets
have been requested by resi-
dents from throughout the lake
region - Mr. Hall hopes that
many more will secure their tick-
ets before or just prior to the
show.
Mr. Hall is also appreciative of
Glades Central High School's
band director, who helped to
allow the event to take place at
the school possible. According
to Mr. Hall, the focus from the
beginning was to involve local
high school programs to take
part in the event.
Tickets are available at
Clewiston Middle School leading
up to the day of the event, with
tickets made available during the
actual day of the event. Tickets
are free.
Laura Smith, with the Clewis-
ton band boosters, agrees that
the show will be one to look for-
ward to.
"It's wonderful," said Ms.
Smith. "It's a free opportunity for
people to see the finesse of the
band, their magnitude and skill.
It shouldn't be missed."
If the concert is well-attend-
ed, organizers say there is a pos-
sibility that the band could make
a return in the future, as well as
other military bands, including
the coast guard, which is now
finalizing its schedule for next
year, including tours in South
Florida.

GCLADES

Electric Cooperative, Inc.


"Neighbors Working for Neighbors"

April 5, 2007
Office of the Governor
The Capitol
Tallahassee, FL 32399-0001
Dear Governor Crist:
On behalf of the Board of Trustees of Glades Electric Cooperative headquartered in Moore Haven, Florida, I am writing this letter to express
our support for the approval of FPL's proposed Glades Power Park coal project. Like you, we are Florida residents who value our state's unique
and natural beauty, and we work hard in our operations to protect its natural resources. As general manager of a fast growing, non-profit electric
distribution cooperative, I also am convinced that we need a reliable, affordable supply of electric energy to meet Florida's economic needs. The
FPL project will do both.
Glades County is a rural county that needs clean industry, good jobs, and tax revenues. Florida's environmental regulations are some of the
strictest in the country. The FPL project will use one of the most efficient, clean pulverized coal technologies available as well as state of the art
in pollution control. This combination will insure that it will meet or exceed our stringent environmental requirements and therefore protect
Glades County, the Everglades, and the rest of Florida. This project will also bring hundreds of much needed permanent and construction jobs
to Glades County that will provide opportunity to our residents and their children and significantly increase the tax revenues that can be used
to build schools and make other sorely needed improvements that are afforded more affluent counties.
FPL's project will benefit Florida by supplying additional generating capacity necessary to meet the ever increasing demand for electric energy
driven by our population growth and customer use. It will also benefit the entire state by increasing the diversity of Florida's fuel portfolio and
reducing our reliance on natural gas which, as we have learned, becomes extremely vulnerable when hurricane storms affect the Gulf of Mexico.
Having an additional electric generating facility that will be able to store several months of fuel as opposed to hours, will greatly benefit Florida's
recovery efforts when these disasters strike. Additionally, this project will help reduce our dependence on foreign supplies of energy.
I realize there has been a great deal of discussion concerning whether or not the FPL project is right for Florida. Glades Electric Cooperative
relies on Seminole Electric Cooperative to provide us wholesale power. As a member of Seminole's Board of Trustees, I recently reviewed the
results of a comprehensive review of available generating technologies and fuels before our Board approved the addition of a third coal unit. I
was pleased to know that FPL is proposing essentially the same technology and pollution control equipment as Seminole's proposed coal plant
in Putnam County. I also know that based on Seminole's experience in Putnam County, a well thought out project, using state of the art technology and
the most advanced pollution control equipment will be accepted by the residents, provide numerous benefits, and protect the environment We
believe the FPL project will be as beneficial to Glades County as the Seminole Project is to Putnam County.
For all the above reasons, we strongly support FPL's Glades coal project. I remain...

Sincerely,



L.T. Todd
General Manager and CEO

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, April 12, 2007


David Zechman named CEO


of Glades General Hospital


WEST PALM BEACH - The
Health Care District of Palm Beach
County announced last week that
David M. Zechman is the Chief
Executive Officer of Glades General
Hospital in
Belle Glade 6 a
effective April
11,2007.
Mr. Zech- - -
man will also h . -
participate in - ":
the senior man- , :.|
agement team A
at the Health
Care District, David
which owns Zechman
and operates
Glades General Hospital, a 73-bed
acute care facility which has been
serving Glades residents since
1946. In addition, Mr. Zechman
will play a key role in the District's
project now underway to construct
a new state-of-the-art regional hos-
pital to serve all the communities in
western Palm Beach County.
"David Zechman brings a
wealth of relevant experience and
commitment to mission from his
25-year career in the health care
field," said C. David Goodlett, Chair
of the Health Care District Board of
Commissioners and Vice President
of Government and Community
Relations for the Sugar Cane Grow-
ers Cooperative of Florida. "His
enthusiasm about the opportunity
will go along way in working with
our dedicated physicians of today


with an eye to supplement addi-
tional high quality doctors."
Most recently, Mr. Zechman
held several executive positions at
Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's
HealthCare system in Louisville,
Kentucky. From 2002 to 2005 Zech-
man served as Chief Executive Offi-
cer of Jewish Hospital Heart and
Lung Institute and Vice President of
Jewish Hospital in Louisville. In
2005 he was promoted to President
of the Jewish Hospital Health Net-
work, a regional network of four
rural hospitals in Kentucky and
Indiana. In his previous position,
Zechman was Vice President of
Cardiovascular Services at St.
Luke's-Shawnee Mission Health
System in Kansas City, Missouri. In
that role he served as Administrator
for the Mid America Heart Institute
and was responsible for adminis-
trative operations and planning for
system cardiac services at the 202-
bed Heart Institute.
"Leading Glades General Hospi-
tal into the future is a tremendous
opportunity," said Mr. Zechman.
"The goal for our new regional
health facility is to provide world
class quality of care and service that
attracts patients and doctors from
our community."
Mr. Zechman earned his B.S.
degree from Miami University in
Oxford, Ohio, and his Master's
Degree in Public Administration,
with an emphasis in health care,
from Cleveland State University. He


is a Certified Health Care Executive
with the American College of
Healthcare Executives.
Glades General Hospital, the
only public hospital in Palm Beach
County, is an acute care facility that
provides a 24-hour physician
staffed ER and a full-range of inpa-
tient and out-patient services.
Since reacquiring Glades General
Hospital in May 2004, the District
has invested $3.5 million dollars in
the latest medical technologies,
including a 16-slice CT scanner, a
Picture Archiving and Communica-
tion System (PACS), and fully elec-
tronic medical records.
"We are proud of the care that is
delivered at Glades General Hospi-
tal each and every day," said
Dwight D. Chenette, the Chief
Executive Officer of the Health Care
District. "David Zechman will build
upon that sense of mission while
providing direction and input to the
retirement of Glades General Hos-
pital and the construction of a new
regional medical center."
The new 70-bed hospital will be
built on a centrally-located 50-acre
campus at the intersection of Hook-
er Highway and U.S. 441, the cross-
roads of the Glades communities.
The new medical facility is seen by
the Health Care District, community
leaders and medical professionals
as a means of providing a more pro-
gressive and integrated health care
delivery system to residents in the
Lake Okeechobee region.

Students


should 'Go


Higher'
TALLAHASSEE - Education
Commissioner Jeanine Blomberg
announced recently the launch of
a new campaign, "Go Higher-
Get Accepted," to help high school
seniors enroll at a community col-
lege in Florida before graduation.
"It is vitally important for stu-
dents to continue their education
after high school," said Commis-
sioner Blomberg. "Nearly 90 per-
cent of students say they want to
pursue more education after grad-
uation, but only half of them do.
This campaign helps students
understand their options and
achieve their goals."
The Florida Department of Edu-
cation and FACTS.org, Florida's
online student advising system, are
coordinating the statewide cam-
paign. During April, a team of 23
community college administrators
will visit 94 high schools through-
out Florida. These teams will help
students assess their career inter-
ests, choose the type of degree or
certificate to pursue, submit an
application for admission and
apply for financial aid. FACTS.org
is coordinating the statewide cam-
paign and providing promotional
support with Web pages, direct
mail pieces, posters and other
materials. It is expected that the
campaign will successfully reach
more than 32,000 students.
"Community colleges are a
great opportunity for all Florida
students to get a quality education
at an affordable price," said Com-
munity College Chancellor David
Armstrong. "We encourage every
high school student to enroll in
their local community college and
achieve the American Dream
through a great college education
that will lead to an outstanding
career and higher quality of life."
The campaign is modeled
after the 2006 "College Connec-
tion" program at Austin Commu-
nity College at San Marcos High
School in Texas. In the first year of
the program, the percentage of
San Marcos students enrolled at
Austin Community College
increased from 34 to 45 percent.
That program has now expanded
to include 22 of the 30 districts in
Austin's service area. Several
other community colleges ih
Texas are now considering mod-
eling their programs after the
Austin program.
"Florida saw an opportunity to
borrow a campaign that was so
successful in Texas and apply it
here in Florida," said FACTS.org
Executive Director Connie
Graunke, Ph.D. "Our goal is that
every high school senior, by the
time they walk across the stage to
get their diploma, will have
received a letter of acceptance to a
college or university. That will
make the next step of going to col-
lege easier."
For a list of "Go Higher-Get
Accepted" events, including partic-
ipating community colleges and
high schools, visit

Sean Moore is at his new office working hard to develop business plans for local new busi-
ness in the community.

full-time counselor for the area,"
said Mr. Moore "If anyone even
has a thought of opening a busi-
ness, we hope they will come and
talk to us first."
According to Mr. Moore, the
SBDC answers questions on top-
ics including applying for a bank
loan, writing a business plan, cor-
porate structures, financial state-
ments, or identifying and reach-
ing your target market. All
counseling services are offered
free of charge.
In addition to the counseling
sessions, the SBDC will host
group seminars that will answer
many of the same questions and
often use those group sessions to
foster the one on one relation-
ship.
Dan Regelski, SBDC Director at
Florida Gulf Coast, said he select-
ed Mr. Moore for a couple of rea-
sons.


"We used a very specific
search for an individual who we
would hire to be responsible for
the areas of Clewiston, Labelle,
Immokalee and Moore Haven,"
said Mr. Regelski. "It was obvious
that Mr. Moore possessed not only
the skills needed but the knowl-
edge and respect from local busi-
ness owners, and the Clewiston
community as a whole, not just
the business sector."
Prior to accepting his current
position, Mr. Moore served as the
Executive Director for the Clewis-
ton Chamber of Commerce, and,
prior to that, worked for the
Glades Media Group and was
often seen hosting events around
the area.
"I've been in the area a while
now, I grew up in Okeechobee,
so I am very comfortable with the
people here and I think that
allows them to be comfortable
with me and are not shy to ask for
help or advice, plus I think they
know the kind of person I am at
heart," said Mr. Moore. "That trust
is crucial in this type work."


According Mr. Moore, the goal
of the program is to help prospec-
tive business owners, or those in
business who still need a little
help from time to time. In the end,
they want every door that opens
to stay that way.
"Absolutely," said Mr. Moore,
"Once you open your doors we
want you to be a success. Any-
thing we can do to make sure that
success is achieved, we'll try to
do. If we had our way, we'd help
from the initial idea to when they
open the door the first day."
Mr. Moore can be reached
every Monday, Thursday and Fri-
day at the Clewiston office, (863)
517-0097. The office is located in
the One Stop Career Center on
Francisco Ave. He can also be
reached by e-mail:
spmoore@fgcu.edu.
"It is the hope of the SBDC, the
SW Florida Workforce Council
and the Hendry County EDC that
as many people take advantage of
these services as possible," Mr.
Moore said.

cation of flight training from instructor, Charles Kirkpatrick of LaBelle.


Local student flies to his prom


CLEWISTON - Isaiah Escor-
cia, 18 the younger son of Rev.
Benjamin Escorcia and Mrs.
Maria Inds all from Clewiston will
be conducting his own sky ride to
the Prom in the city of West Palm
Beach. He is the first student of
the city, county and perhaps of the
history of Florida to do so.
Isaiah started taking flying les-
sons on the summer of 2006 and
three months later he was per-
forming his first solo. On March
5, he obtained his diploma from
the flight school: "Heliplane Air-
craft Corporation International,"
based at the Airport of La Belle.
The instructor who trained him
on such a career is the CFI
Charles Kirkpatrick of La Belle
also. Furthermore, the flight


school is the only place in the
world that houses the Heliplanes
- aircraft with similarities of
helicopter and airplane.
Isaiah's dad encouraged him
to learn to fly and now is surpass-
ing him in the flying, for Rev.
Escorcia has been learning to fly
for the last couple of years. Both,
father and son took their first long
cross country flight last Saturday
March 24, to the affected areas of
the tornado that struck Enter-
prise, Ala., on the first of the
month. Isaiah's father is prepar-
ing himself for international mis-
sionary flights to as many coun-
tries as possible, including his
hometown Nicaragua. He is a
minister of Iglesia De Dios Pente-
costal M.I. (Pentecostal Church of


God M.I.) He worked hard as well
as Isaiah during the hurricanes of
2004 and 2005 that hit Florida,
Mississippi and Louisiana. They
were involved in the distribution
of food and different helps in the
community of Clewiston and sur-
roundings cooperating with U.S.
Army, American Red Cross,
Southern Baptist Convention,
Hendry County, City of Clewiston
and many other organizations
active in disasters. Among of
some of Isaiah's goals are to
become a certified flight instruc-
tor with his father, fly commercial
jets and finally be a flight engi-
neer. The young student is the last
kid of the Escorcia family and
also the first graduated pilot
among them.

that morning that we would be
taking them to school because
their mother was not feeling
well and had to sleep in, accord-
ing to the report.
One of Sandra's friends told
deputies about an earlier incident
Sandra had told her about. Sandra
said she woke up one night to find
the suspect standing over her with
a "crazed look in his eyes." When
Sandra asked him what he was
doing, he allegedly told her, "I was
just trying to figure out what part of
the Everglades I am going to feed
you to the alligators."
When investigators inter-
viewed him, Donald Nicholson


had fresh scratches on his face and
body. Though he admitted to hav-
ing been involved in an argument
with his wife the night before she
disappeared, he denied that it
turned physical.
According to the report, the
suspect told investigators Sandra
had left home on foot. He
explained that the scratches on
his person were received at work,
but no report of injuries was
made at Nemeth Air Conditioning
Inc., though it is policy to report
all injuries.
Directly countering the sus-
pect's claim that his wife had left on
foot was the account of another
woman, identified only as Amanda
in the report, who told investigators
the suspect had driven to her home
to ask if she had seen Sandra. The


suspect told her Sandra had left the
night before in their truck. When
the women peered over to find the
suspect driving that very truck, he
reportedly left immediately.
The medical examiner's office
on Sunday, April 1 confirmed inves-
tigators' suspicions that the
woman had been killed. A report
by that office revealed it was a
homicide case.
Officials, who had Daniel
Nicholson's home under surveil-
lance, arrested him the next day,
taking several items into evidence,
including the pillow case that test-
ed positive for the presence of
human blood, according to the
report.
Daniel Nicholson faces one
count of second-degree murder.
He is not eligible for bond.

With the level of Lake Okeechobee low, some people have
been driving ATVs and four-wheel drive vehicles on the
exposed lake bottom, damaging thealake's ecosystem by
killing the emerging plants. FWC is working with area law

LAKE OKEECHOBEE -
Drought has a left wide expanse
of Lake Okeechobee dry, leading
to another threat to the endan-
gered lake. People driving ATVs
and four-wheel drive vehicles on
the lake bottom are killing the
vegetation and destroying poten-
tial fish habitat.
"When the lake is so dry there
is exposed lake bottom, a lot of
people - for fun -- take their
ATVs and other vehicles and go
mudding," said Dani Moschella,
spokesperson for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC). "That is detri-
mental to the lake bottom."
"Last weekend there were
reports of hundreds of vehicles out
there on the lake," she said.
When the water levels are low,
the areas around the edge of the
lake dry out. This allows seeds that
are in the soil to germinate and start
to grow. When the rains come and
the lake returns to normal levels,
these new plants provide essential

habitat for fish.
Ms. Moschella said the small
fish especially need this vegetation
for cover.
"When you drive an ATV over
that lake bottom, it kills that emerg-
ing vegetation," she said.
Ms. Moschella said she is hop-
ing if anglers in the area understand
how driving on the lake bottom
damages the fisheries, they will
help spread the word about the
problem.
Driving on the lake bottom is
against the law, she said. Anyone
who does this can be charged with
destruction of state land.
. Ms. Moschella said FWC is
working with the South Florida
Water Management District and
local law enforcement agencies to
put up more signs around the lake
and to enforce the law.
She said those who are driving
on the lake are also leaving
behind litter.
"People are going out there,
leaving beer bottles and Gatorade
cans - it's a mess and that is no
good for the lake either," she said.


Florida strengthens protection for the Everglades


WEST PALM BEACH - The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) last week for-
malized a groundbreaking rule that
further guarantees water to protect
and restore America's Everglades.
Known as the Regional Water
Availability Rule, this first-of-its kind
requirement prevents water users
from tapping the famed River of
Grass for new or additional sup-
plies of water. Setting aside the
water in the Everglades for environ-
mental restoration, permitted users
like urban water utilities along
Florida's southeast coast will now
have to find alternative sources to
supply regional growth.
"The South Florida Water Man-
agement District has taken another
significant step for protecting and
restoring America's Evergjades,"
said Michael Sole, Secretary of the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection. "This visionary
rule safeguards Florida's invest-
ments, ensures that our communi-
ties manage growth responsibly
and provides additional guarantees
for making water available for the
environment first."
In South Florida, water'suppli-
ers in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm


"This legally binding rule is essential for pro-
tecting the water in the Everglades, because
water is the key to restoration success. Our
Regional Water Availability Rule represents a
strong and very clear policy statement that the
South Florida Water Management District will
protect water for the environment."
- Carol Ann Wehle,
SFWMD Executive Director


Beach and Monroe counties cur-
rently depend on an estimated 500
million gallons of water per day
from the Everglades to recharge
and sustain the Biscayne Aquifer -
their primary drinking water
source. Recognizing the need for
more protective limits for the River
of Grass, the District last year began
developing the Regional Water
Availability Rule to limit increased
reliance on the Everglades system
and Everglades-dependent ground-
water, formally identifying them as
"sources of limited availability."
"This rule is a big win for the
environment," said Kevin McCarty,
Governing Board Chairman of the


South Florida Water Management
District. "South Florida is a different
place than it was just 30 years ago
and our water resources are not
unlimited. This rule boldly address-
es regional growth and the need to
protect the natural system for
future generations."
Cities needing additional water
supplies will now be required to
seek sources that are not dependent
on the Everglades for recharge.
These alternative water supply solu-
tions may include recycling water,
using reclaimed water to recharge
the Biscayne Aquifer or drawing
water from the deeper Floridan
Aquifer, which requires treatment


to remove saltwater content.
"This legally binding rule is
essential for protecting the water in
the Everglades, because water is
the key to restoration success,"
added SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "Our Regional
Water Availability Rule represents a
strong and very clear policy state-
ment that the South Florida Water
Management District will protect
water for the environment."
Existing water supply permits
are not being revoked. The rule
affects new applicants seeking a
permit and existing permittees
seeking permit renewal. The rule
specifically prevents permitted
water supply allocations from being
greater than levels that existed prior
to April 2006. To prevent shortfalls in
meeting current public drinking
water needs, the rule provides a
grace period for renewal applicants,
provided they are actively develop-
ing alternative supplies.
The District sought extensive
public input on the rule, holding
five rounds of workshops and issu-
ing five draft rules in response to
comments from stakeholders
before developing and publishing
the final draft. . .

Drought increases certain danger of wildfire


By Katrina Elsken
INI Florida
As the drought continues on
South Florida, the danger of wild-
fire increases.
"Probably our biggest concern
in the Everglades are muck fires,"
said Steve Coughlin, wildlife biol-
ogist with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC). He explained that the
soil in the Everglades conserva-
tion areas is highly organic. When
it dries out, the muck can easily
catch fire, he said.
If the water level falls below a
foot and a half below the surface,
the area is at risk, Mr. Coughlin
explained.
A muck fire can cause perma-
nent damage to the conservation
area, he said, because once the
organic soils are consumed by
fire, the ecosystem in that area
can't be repaired.
"If we have a muck fire that is a
permanent effect," he said. "That
is our bigger concern."
Mr. Coughlin said during the
2001 drought, there were muck
fires in the Everglades.


"In 2001, we were able to
move some big pumps in and
inundate those areas and get the
fires out but it still did some dam-
age," he said. "If that happens this
year, we don't know if we'll have
water to put them out or not."
Mr. Coughlin said the public
should be very careful not to start
any fires.
"All we need is a lightning
strike or a fire started by a mem-
ber of the public," he said.
"This year, we're not just dry in
any one area of south Florida,
we're dry from Kissimmee area on
down," he said. "There is no back-
up water anyone can send to us."
"We have a long ways to go
before the wet season is going to
kick in," he said.
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles Bronson has designated
this week, April 8 -14 as Wildfire
Awareness Week.
"March, April and May are usu-
ally the most active months of
Florida's year round wildfire sea-
son, and coupled with this year's
current drought situation, there is
a very good chance that we will


see an increase in wildfire activity
in the next few months," Mr.
Bronson said.
The Department of Agricul-
ture's Division of Forestry (DOF)
is conducting a Fire Weather Edu-
cation Campaign during Wildfire
Awareness Week in order to edu-
cate people about the effect
weather can have on fire behav-
ior. At the heart of the campaign
will be a contest where TV, online
newspaper viewers and radio lis-
teners are eligible to-win a Fire
Danger Weather Kit. Participants
become eligible to win by correct-
ly answering questions provided
by the DOF each day.

Use caution when you are around alligators


By Katrina Elsken
INI FLORIDA
Recently boaters on Lake Okee-
chobee called the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) for
help. Their boat was stuck on a
sandbar in shallow water. The fish-
erman and his friends could have
easily walked to shore, except for
one problem - they were sur-
rounded by alligators.
The water was too shallow for
the OCSO boats to reach the
boaters, so a member of the OCSO
Search and Rescue Auxiliary used
his own airboat to rescue the men.
As water levels in Lake Okee-
chobee drop, alligators that live in
the big lake area are being seen in
greater numbers.
"Low water levels tend to con-
centrate alligators in the areas that
still have water," explained Blair
Hayman, a biologist with the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC). "People tend
to see more of them."
The alligator population of Lake
Okeechobee is pretty stable, she
explained. While counts of any
wild animal cannot be completely
accurate, she said their surveys esti-
mate that Lake Okeechobee is
home to about 100,000 alligators.
Surveys done each year help the
FWC determine the number of alli-
gator hunt permits that will be
issued for each hunting area.


"A short term drought does not
have much effect on alligators,"
she explained. She said the low
lake levels force alligators into
smaller areas, but also concentrate
the prey animals into these same
areas.
"In some cases it might even
make it easier for the alligator to
catch its prey," she said, "but
there's also more competition for
the food."
Even if food is scarce, "alligators
can go quite a long time without
eating," she said.
"A long term drought could
have a more noticeable effect. But
alligators are pretty resilient ani-
mals," said Ms. Hayman.
While alligator attacks on
humans are rare, this concentra-
tion of alligators in the water does
make it more dangerous.
"It's not a good idea to wade
through an area where there are
lots of alligators," Ms. Hayman
explained.
Alligators are also more notice-
able this time of year because they
become more active as the weath-
er warms up, she said.
"Sometimes there is a public
perception that the alligator popu-
lation is exploding, but that is not
true," Ms. Hayman continued.
She said the protection meas-
ures over the last 20 years have
allowed the alligator population to
recover to the point where the state


could allow alligator hunts.
"The annual hunt allows people
to enjoy the benefit of this natural
resource," she said.
The hunt also helps prevent
overpopulation.
"In areas where the alligator
population has increased, we
allow for more harvests by issuing
more permits," she said.
She said just because the per-
mits are issued, this does not mean
exactly that many alligators will be
killed. The hunters don't always
harvest as many alligators as their
permits would allow.
"Anytime you are in an area
where there are alligators, be
aware of their presence," Ms. Hay-
man advised.
She said this especially is true at
night, when alligators are more
active.
Alligators pose a special threat
to dogs. Never allow dogs to play in
the water or on the shoreline
where alligators are present, she
said.
"Gator bites are rare," she said.
"But they usually happen in the
water or-at the water's edge. Some-
times people step on an alligator
and it reacts by biting."
According to the FWC, alligators
abound in all 67 counties and have
shared marshes, swamps, rivers
and lakes with people for centuries.
But because more individuals are
seeking waterfront property and


water-related activities increase
during the warm months, people
should be alert when they are in
areas where alligators could be
present.
The current drought has also
forced some alligators to move to
find water. Because of this alliga-
tors may now be found in ponds
and waterways where they were
not previously seen.
FWC officials advise Floridians
closely supervise children when
they are playing in or around water.
State law prohibits contact with
alligators, and it is against the law to
feed them.
There are other precautionary
measures people should take to
reduce potential conflicts with alli-
gators, and they are available in the
"Living with Alligators" brochure at
MyFWC.com/gators.
The FWC annually receives
more than 18,000 alligator-related
complaints. The agency removes
more than 7,000 alligators each
year when the reptiles present dan-
ger to people or property.
If you encounter an alligator
that poses a threat to you, your pets
or your property, and the alligator is
more than 4 feet long, call the
FWC's toll-free Nuisance Alligator
Hotline at 1-866-FWC-GATOR
(392-4286). The telephone number
is the primary contact for all alliga-
tor complaints and is available to
customers 24 hours a day.


Gators: frequently asked questions


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
answers frequently asked ques-
tions (FAQ) about alligators.
What is a nuisance
alligator?
Generally, alligators may be
considered a nuisance when they
are at least 4 feet in length and
pose a threat to people or their
pets or property. Alligators less
than 4 feet in length are naturally
fearful of people and are not gen-
erally capable of eating anything
larger than a small turtle. They eat
small fish, frogs and other small
animals. They are too small to be
a threat to even small pets and
pose no threat to people. They are
typically not dangerous to people
unless someone attempts to han-
dle them. Also, they are common
in Florida and the mere presence
of a small alligator is not cause for
concern, even when they turn up
in places where people may not
expect to see them such as reten-
tion ponds and drainage ditches.
However, occasionally alligators
less than 4 feet in length are legiti-
mate problems and must be
addressed. If an alligator less than
4 feet in length approaches peo-
ple, does not retreat if approached
or is in a location that is not natu-
ral, call the Nuisance Alligator Hot-
line at 1-866-FWC-GATOR (1-866-
392-4286). The Statewide


Nuisance Alligator Program strives
to reduce the threat from alligators
to people and their property in
developed areas, while conserv-
ing alligators in areas where alliga-
tors naturally occur. If you have a
nuisance alligator call the Nui-
sance Alligator Hotline at 1-866-
FWC-GATOR (1-866-392-4286).

Counting animals in the wild
is without a doubt one of the
most formidable challenges to
wildlife scientists. There never is
an easy way to answer this ques-
tion, but here's what we know.
Based on known amounts of
suitable alligator habitat
statewide and estimates of alliga-
tor densities in those different
types of habitat, we believe there
are more than 1 million wild alli-
gators in Florida.
How fast can
an alligator run?
We know of no one who has
measured the ground speed of
alligators. Actually, there is little
reason, in regard to population
management and basic knowl-
edge of alligators, to research
this topic. Alligators are aquatic
animals; they hunt and capture
prey that is in or immediately
adjacent to water. Alligators and
other crocodilians will go on


land to feed on dead animal car-
casses, and they may attempt to
prey upon confined or tethered
animals. Although alligators are
capable of running, they use this
gait to flee threatening situa-
tions. There is no documented
evidence of alligators running
after human beings to prey upon
them. Also, there is no basis to
the myth that you should run in
zig-zag patterns to avoid a charg-
ing alligator. If you do find your-
self in the extremely unlikely
position of avoiding a lunging
alligator, you should run in a
straight line away from the alli-
gator and it's habitat, which is
where the alligator will most
likely retreat. Regardless of how
fast alligators can run, you
should never approach an alliga-
tor that is on land.
Is the American alligator
an endangered species?
Historically, alligators were
depleted from many parts of their
range as a result of market hunt-
ing, poaching, and loss of habitat.
In 1967, the alligator was listed as
an endangered species (under a
law that ,preceded the Endan-
gered Species Act of 1973), mean-
ing it was considered in danger of
extinction throughout all or a sig-
nificant portion of its range. The
Endangered Species Act prohibit-
ed alligator hunting, allowing the


Use hard boiled eggs within one week


If your refrigerator is now well
stocked with colored, hard boiled
eggs, it's time to come up with
ways to use them. Hard boiled eggs
should be kept refrigerated.
According to the United States
Department of Agriculture, hard
boiled eggs should be consumed
within a week after cooking.
The shells of raw eggs have a
natural protection against bacteria.
However, boiling or steaming the
eggs causing this protection to be
lost. Hardboiled eggs have tiny
microscopic holes in the shells.
These holes are too small to see,
but large enough to allow in bacte-
ria. That's why it is important to
keep hard boiled eggs refrigerated,
and to discard them if they are
more than week old.
Hard boiled eggs can be an easi-
ly portable, nutritious snack. How-
ever, they do not travel well for
long. If a hard boiled egg is out of
the refrigerator for more than two
hours, it may not be safe to eat.
There are many ways to use
hard boiled eggs in recipes. The fol-
lowing recipes using hard boiled
eggs came from the Iowa Egg
Council.
Egg Salad
Spread Supreme
6 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
1/4 cup shredded zucchini
1/4 cup shredded carrots

eggs, and celery. In separate bowl
blend mayonnaise, cream cheese,
lemon juice, and salt until smooth.
Stir the two mixtures


together and pour into a 9" x 9"
glass baking dish. Combine mar-
garine and bread crumbs and
sprinkle evenly over the top.
Microwave on full power for 7-9
minutes or until bubbly..
This chicken salad can be used
as the filling for the cream puffs.
Leftover turkey from Thanksgiving
dinner can be used as a substitute
for the chicken.

/2 inch wall of bread. Cut 1 cup of
the leftover bread into cubes and
toast in the oven for about 5 min-
utes at 3500F.
Dice eggs, tomato, and cucum-
ber. Heat bacon in microwave uqtil

species to rebound in numbers in
many areas where it had been
depleted. Alligators were down-
listed from endangered to threat-
ened in 1977, and, in 1987, the
American alligator was reclassi-
fied by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service as threatened due to simi-
larity of appearance. This designa-
tion does not imply that alligator
populations are threatened; it's
purpose is to afford protection to
endangered crocodilians, such as
the American crocodile and the
black caiman (which occurs in
South America), by regulating the
management-of alligators and the
legal trade in alligator products.
Do other crocodilians
occur in Florida?
Florida is also home to the
American crocodile. The Ameri-
can crocodile lives in coastal
saltwater wetlands in extreme
southern Florida. This crocodile
is listed as an endangered
species and, as such, is protect-
ed by state, federal and interna-
tional laws and treaties.

Alligators are more active this time of year, and the low lake
levels have caused the gators to concentrate in larger num-
bers in the areas that still have water.

What to do about the drought in our local yards


By Dan Culbert
UF/IFAS Extension
Horticulture Agent
This week we expect to hear
from the South Florida Water Man-
agement District that our area will
be placed under even more chal-
lenging water restrictions. Since
our office has already begun to
field questions on how to cope
with limited water supplies, it is
appropriate to offer some sugges-
tion on how to deal with drought
in local Florida Yards.
Some of the best ways to deal
with reduced landscape water sup-
plies involve preparing well before
the spigots are turned off. These
tips include choosing drought toler-
ant plants, conditioning your land-
scape to survive on less water and
making adjustments to irrigation
equipment to deliver water more
efficiently. Today's column will
focus on things that can be done
for the here and now.
Dangers of drought
How dry are we? A popular
measure of drought is the Keetch-


UNIVERSITY OF
FLORIDA
IFAS EXTENSION
Byram Drought Index (KBDI).
This is the index that runs from 0
(flood stage) to 800 (desert condi-
tions). Last week (when this arti-
cle was written) the average KBDI
drought index for Okeechobee
was 674; unless a flood has hap-
pened since then, expect the
number to have increased.
Drought in the landscape means
plant stress from a lack of water.
The signs of turf grass turning from
gray green to brown are well
known to many people, but folding
leaves and drooping branches of
trees and shrubs will also be seen in
our Florida Yards. Those problem
areas in irrigation systems are now
quite evident, and it looks like we
are in the middle of summer. With
continued wilting, the ability of a
plant to fend off pests becomes
reduced, and our Florida Yards will
be in for some challenges.
Another serious issue with


drought is the danger of wildfire.
Our natural areas and landscapes
are suffering from this past winter's
frost damage, as well as a lack of
moisture needed for recovery and
normal seasonal growth. That's
why there is a burn ban in most of
South Florida, including our area.
The SFWMD is expected to
approve water use restrictions this
coming week, and our area will be
required to move to a 45 percent
reduction in their overall water
consumption. This is being done
to preserve our limited water sup-
plies needed for basic human
health and safety. And despite
what die-hard gardeners may
believe, landscape irrigation is not
considered to be necessary for
basic human health and safety.
Under the current Phase II
restrictions, landscape watering is
allowed twice a week. If Phase III
restrictions are imposed (as expect-
ed later this week), watering would
be allowed only once a week. It is
time to take inventory of landscape
watering practices, and adjust
them to meet our current drought
emergency.


Tips for drought
landscapes
* Follow landscape watering
restrictions. You don't want a visit
from the "water-police". Watering
by sprinklers can only be done in
the early morning (4-8 a.m.) on
allowed day(s); hand watering by a
hose with a shut-off device can be
done on allowed days in the
evening (5-7 pm). Check with our
office or the District to find out your
day to water, http://www.sfwmd.gov
* Choose your battles. Concen-
trate your watering efforts on parts
of the landscape that REALLY need
water. Certain plants will ultimately
recover from drought, (like Bahia
grass lawns). Other plants will not
survive without irrigation. Consider
giving up on those water-hog
plants or those that are not going to
make it anyway. These can be
replaced with drought tolerant
species. Recently planted orna-
mentals and fruit trees with young
developing fruit would be a bit
more important on the list of pants
that must have their drink of water.
And, if there are plants that have


sentimental value, keep them alive
by providing them with your valu-
able watering allotments.
* Place your potted plants close
together in shady areas. Plants that
are close together will help keep an
envelope of moisture around their
neighboring plants, reducing the
need for irrigation.
* Calibrate your sprinkler -
apply only enough water on your
designated watering day to fill a can
with one-half to three-quarters inch
of water. The amount of time to do
this will depend on how you water
your landscape. For hose watering,
use the same number of turns of
the water valve any time you water.
If you have a time clock, it should
be set for the time needed to deliver
this half of water.
* Restrict the use of fertilizers.
Fertilizers encourage new succu-
lent growth that can not be sup-
ported unless extra water is avail-
able. Most fertilizers will need to be
watered into the root zone and if
insufficient water is used, root
damage can result.
* Use pesticides carefully. While
some pest problems are reduced in


dry conditions (e.g. fungal rots and
aquatic weeds), others can
become multiplied by drought
(e.g. nematode damage and spider
mites). Check with our office to be
sure that any pesticides used will be
appropriate for dry conditions.
* Delay planting new plants.
New plants will require additional
water to become properly estab-
lished in the landscape. Due to the
drought, one local church has cho-
sen to remove damaged shrubs
and mulch the bed for now; they
will replant once our summer rains
resume. Use the time to visit your
favorite nursery and order those
replacement plants for some time
in near future.
There are several sources of
additional information on keeping
up to date with the drought situa-
tion. Besides our office, drought
information is available from the
South Florida Water Management
District and the FDACS Division of
Forestry. Theses agencies are the
sources of our drought regulations,
and also offer advice on dealing
with drought. Many of these tips
are available on their websites.

Remembering life-changing moments and the moment: Easter


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Every week we celebrate Sun-
day as our day of worship. It is a
day that has turned out to be a
declared "day of rest" in our soci-
ety. It wasn't ---- T - ,
always that
way, though. In
the earliest -
days, our
ancestors kept
their "Sab-
bath" on Satur- . -
day, beginning
Friday evening
and finishing SamuelS.
Saturday Thomas
evening. For
those who became Christians,
they continued on from Saturday
evening into Sunday morning; to
proclaim the message of a life-
changing event that had hap-


opened to them and what it meant
for all people. It was time to wor-
ship in a new way and to give
thanks for a new gift. Over time,
as the importance of this gift from
God was realized, Saturday wor-
ship fell away; the really special
day to worship was that weekly
commemoration of Easter and all
that it meant. We've carried on
that lesson and tradition ever
since; every Sunday is a celebra-
tion of Easti& when the empty
tomb was found and the women
who visited there met the risen
Lord. From then on, things would
be different; that defining
moment would change every-
thing. One had been raised from
the dead and He promised that
we would be with Him for eterni-
ty; now anyone who believed
would see their life with a new
purpose and the reason for it all.
Each Sunday became an Easter;
each life became changed


because we shared its' promise. I
remember the first time I was
asked to preach. It was something
I was preparing to do at that time,
but then the moment actually
came and I was to stand before a
congregation and say something
about what they had heard in the
lessons for that day. I remember
afterwards they shook my hand,
thank me and then went on their
way, but I was seen in a new way.
It was the first of many days that
would follow, suddenly I was rec-
ognized as "the preacher" and it
would continue. It would culmi-
nate in ordination and being rec-
ognized as different than before.
From that moment, I would be
called to serve by those who rec-
ognized me as minister; there
would be another quality with a
special trust and special obliga-
tions, special joys and challenges.
It !would be different than before.
I remember other life-changing


moments too. There was a year
when I spent every night and
most of the days-writing a disser-
tation at a University Library,
preparing a dissertation that was
to be "an original contribution to
knowledge." The day came when
I was to defend my work before a
faculty committee and when it
would be accepted-or not accept-
ed-and I would graduate-or not. I
remember sitting at the end of a
long table and all of the profes-
sors voting to accept.it, then con-
gratulating me. When I left the
room, students outside asked me
"How'd you do?" and I told them
"I passed!" They said "Congratu-
lations, doctor!" and life would be
different afterwards. New doors
would open; new opportunities
would present themselves, new
insights and new possibilities
opened up from that moment
onward. Easter is that moment for
us all. It is life-changing and opens


Defining prayer: similar, but not alike


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
If we were all asked what
prayer means to us, the answers
would probably be similar but not
exactly alike. Let me give you my
answer.
1: An acknowledgement of
God. We are told, "In all thy ways
acknowledge Him, and He shall
direct thy paths" (Proverbs 3:6).
Prayer is one way to acknowledge
God (that He exists, that He is our
Father; that He is great, that He is
over us, that He hears and
answers our prayers, etc.). To me
this is so important!
2: Prayer is spending time with
God. In prayer He is our Father,


enjoy spending time with those
we love. We visit, go places
together, do things with each
other, and live with and for each
other. In prayer we are spending
personal time with our heavenly
Father, doing what the song says,
"Take time to be holy - speak oft
with thy Lord."
3: It is praise and thanksgiving
to Him for His continued good-
ness and blessings. He "daily
loadeth us with benefits" (Psalm
69:19). "His compassion fail not.
They are new every morning"
(Lam. 3:22-23). He opens the
windows of heaven and pours out
more blessings than we can
receive (Mal. 3:10). We are cor-


the sparrow and I know He
watches me" (Matt. 10:29,31).
4: Accepting God's invitation to
ask things for myself. His door is
ever open for all of us Christians to
tell Him what we need and want.
Isn't it wonderful that there is a
place where we can meet the One
who is both willing and able to
give us what we need? That place
is prayer and that person is God!
5: An opportunity to ask in
behalf of other people and King-
dom projects. This is where we
can spend much time with God. It
is connected with our love for oth-
ers and our interest in God's King-
dom, the Church.
May one or more of these per-


you in your prayer life.
In closing, let me share some
thoughts from songs that mean
much to me: "Oh, what peach we
often forfeit; Oh, what needless
pain we bear. All because we do
not carry everything to God in
prayer." "Sweet Hour of Prayer"
reminds us of what a privilege
prayer is as long as we inhabit
these mortal bodies, but when at
last from Mt. Pisgah's lofty height
we view our heavenly home and
take our flight and shout while
passing through the air, "Farewell,
farewell, sweet hour of prayer," for
there we will have no unfulfilled
need! My favorite verse regarding
prayer is Ephesians 3:20. Read it,


the door to life for us all. It has
been the realization for me that
this life goes on, and that it is dif-
ferent than before; and that it
brings special gifts and opportuni-
ties to us all. The One who has
come, has opened the door to us;
we are not the same as before.
Now there is hope of a newer life
and a better life to come, and that
somehow God is always there to
help when things are down, or to


share in joy, or bless an accom-
plishment or heal when sick, and
that nothing shall separate us
from Him and His love (read
Romans 8!); that we are "more
than conquerors through Him
who loved us - (Romans 8:37)."
Each week when I stop to wor-
ship the Lord, there is that life-
changing Easter with us again -
and thanks be to God for it with all
of the life changes it brings.

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Once again Easter season has
hardly finished before I have to
start thinking of tax season.
Once again I find myself thinking
about our Easter services, our
annual butterfly release follow-
ing those services and all of the
other special Holy Week activi-
ties while dealing with the tag-
Sging weight that taxes 'are..soon
due. Once again, I find it ironic
that as I sit at my computer
thinking about my Easter offer-
ing my thoughts are invaded by
the worry of what offering I will
need to make to the government
by the middle of this month.
With apologies to the IRS,
one seems very heavenly and the
other very earthly. One minute
I'm at Calvary, the next I'm at my
checkbook. One reminds how
God paid it all and the other

reminds that I have a lot to pay.
In all of this, I try to keep in mind
the words of Christ to render to
Caesar the things that are Cae-
sar's and to God the things that
are God's.
As I think
about what's
ahead of me, I
find my
thoughts drift-
ing back to the
guy who gave
the donkey for,
Jesus to ride
into Jerusalem John
on that first Hicks
Palm Sunday.
Who was this guy? He's not
named. The-only thing we know
is that Jesus told His disciples, "If
anyone asks you why you are
taking the donkeys, say that the
Master has need of them and he
will send them at once."
(Matthew 21:3)
Did this guy just give his ani-


and worship team from LaBelle.

mals to someone in need or did
he know it was Jesus who need-
ed the donkey? Did the man
worry about getting the donkey
back? When I put myself in his
place I wonder how freely I
might have given my donkey. I
sometimes wonder about how
freely I might or might not give
today. I wonder about these
things because there are times I
like to keep my animals to
myself for my own use.
Sornetimres I get the impres-
sr ri hal God \%ants me to give
Him something or do something
in His name and sometimes I
don't give it or do it because it's
not convenient or I'm really busy
at the moment or I'm worried
about getting back what I am
giving out. Sometimes I wonder
if my time and giving today will
really make a difference in the
long run. Sometimes, in retro-
spect, I feel like I have missed
opportunities.

And then there are those
times when I get the impression
that God wants me to give Him
something and I respond and
feel honored that a gift of mine
would be used to carry Jesus
into another place.
The reality is that all of us
have a donkey. You and I each
have something in our lives
which, if given back to God,
could, like the donkey, move
Jesus and His story further down
the road. Maybe you can bake or
clean or perhaps teach a class,
speak a foreign language or
drive a car. Maybe you can sing
or read or give a hug. Maybe you
can program a computer, sell
real estate or even write a check.
Whichever, that's your donkey.
Whichever, it could be that God
wants to mount your donkey
and enter into another place,
another situation, another heart,
another life. Do you let Him? Or
do you hold tight to the reins?
