Utility standards mandatory


City must meet
new standards to
avoid blackouts

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - The City of
Clewiston has recently been ad-
vised that they will have to com-
ply with a mandatory contract
with Florida Municipal Agency
(FMPA) due to new reliability
standards designed to prevent
blackouts.


At the last city commission
meeting Kevin McCarthy, Clew-
iston Utilities Director presented
to the board a contract which
the City of Clewiston being told
to comply with before the Aug.
1 deadline.
According to Mr. McCarthy,
the mandatory compliance con-
tract is the result of new legisla-
tion introduced in the wake of
the large blackout that occurred
in the northeastern part of the
country several years back.
The new standards set out
to prevent 'another large scale
blackout from happening.


Because of that, all utility sys-
tems the size of Clewiston's or
larger - meaning that they op-
erate on 25 megawatts or more
- must comply, explained Mr.
McCarthy.
According to Mr. McCarthy,
that doesn't mean much to
Clewiston, since the local utility
system is operating within the
limits of the new standards. He
explained that the department
only needs to worry about send-
ing the detailed reports on a.reg-
ular basis to comply.
"We don't need to upgrade
or added anything," said Mr. Mc-


Carthy.
The reports required by FMPA
consist of about 10 to 15 annual
reports. If a major failure occurs,
a report must be sent out within
24 hours.
The penalties, however, are
substantial.
"We must be very careful that
all reports are sent over," said Mr.
McCarthy, "or the fines can range
from $1,000 to one million per
day, and we definitely can't af-
ford it."
The FMPA has over 100 stan-
dards, according to Mr. McCar-
thy. He said that 30 apply to the


city, and the agency will help the
city continually meet some stan-
dards.
Commissioners signed the
contract during its 'last meeting
on Monday, July 16.
"This mandatory contract re-
ally involves a lot more reporting
and paperwork," said Mr. Mc-
Carthy, "but everything should
be fine as long as we report and
continue to comply with their set
standards."

Man accused



of child porn


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - After a two-
month long investigation, the
Clewiston Police Department's
Child Exploitation Unit arrested
a 21 year-old Saint Cloud man
for engaging in an illicit sexual
encounter and possession of
child pornography.
He was arrested at a local
motel in Clewiston.
Like it has in the past, the
Clewiston Police Department
put one of its investigators to
work as an undercover online
per.'-,n.i. -vhose work online
w as fir nrling sexual predators.'
The officer, posing as the
stepfather of an 11-year-old girl,
made contact with someone


with the Yahoo screen name
"turtles ohmy," who, accord-
ing to investigators, later identi-
fied himself as Matt Dunham.
Officers first made contact
with him on May 28.
During a number of conver-
sations between Dunham and
the supposed stepfather, in-
vestigators report that the man
began to form an interest in
trading pornographic images of
young children - sending sev-
eral images to the stepfather.
The stepfather told the man
that he had access to nine- and
11-year-old girls related to him,
one being his own stepdaugh-

Funding sought

County's public
transportation
future in limbo

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY- For the
past four-and-a-half years, Hen-
dry County residents have been
able to rely on public transpor-
tation to and from Palm Beach
County.
The services previously were
funded by the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation (FDOT)
District 4, but in order to contin-
ue the services Hendry County


must now pay.
Angela Morlock, principal
planner with the Palm Beach
Metropolitan Planning Organi-
zation, went in front of the Hen-
dry County Board of County
Commissioners (BOCC) to seek
funds to continue the route.
According to her, people are
now making use of the route to
travel to their jobs and handle
other errands in Palm Beach
County. Without it, residents
would have to drive them-
selves.
"This benefits the residents
here," Mrs. Morlock told com-

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - For the
past two years the local His-
panic Outreach program has
sponsored a campaign to raise
money and supplies to help lo-
cal Hendry and Glades needy
families with school supplies
and uniforms for their children.
According to Ana Rivera,
Hispanic Outreach Special-
ist, the non-profit organization
reaches out because, "There
are many children in Hendry
and Glades counties who really
need our help" she said.
Although the fund-raising ef-
fort in the past has fallen short
of their goals, the program con-
tinues working every year to
help local kids.
"Last year we were able to
help just some of the children,
because we did not receive


enough funds or supplies to
help everyone, she said.
This year, Ms. Rivera is hop-
ing to spread the word to all
local businesses that could pro-
vide her group with money to
buy the necessary supplies. Ms.
Rivera's hope is that she won't
have to turn away any families
in need of the school supplies.
Children who enter school
without the important educa-
tional tools will sometimes lag
behind, educators say.
Many of the migrant families
are out of their seasonal jobs
this time of the year, but their
children need supplies and
uniforms regardless of their
financial situation, Ms. Rivera
explained.
Oftentimes, and especially
when families with undocu-
mented parents have to work,

Cats are safer kept indoors away from injury and illness


The world is full of people that
you don't know and shouldn't
trust. If you wouldn't let your
child roam alone in public with
strangers, why let your cat? From
diseases to predators, here are 10
reasons from cat experts to keep
your cat indoors:
Outdoor cats are more likely to
contract a disease, such as tape-
worm, salmonella, or rabies. Not
only is this harmful for your cat,
but for your family and friends
as well. "Many of these diseases
can be transmitted to people,"
said Dr. John August, a veterinar-
ian at the College of Veterinary
Medicine & Biomedical Sciences
at Texas A&M University.
"Children are especially sus-
ceptible to these diseases and


Pet Talk

should take caution when play-
ing with outdoor cats."
Fleas are a common problem
with outdoor pets. They thrive in
tall grass and on humidity. With
the abundance of rain lately,
these pests are quickly multiply-
ing. Reducing the time the pet
spends outdoors will reduce the
chances of fleas entering your
home. While you can't keep fleas
out of the world, you can keep
them out of your house.
Many outdoor cat owners
worry about their neighbor's
dog, but not any other preda-
tors. Cats have dozens of other
enemies outdoors. "Birds, skunks


and snakes are just a few animals
that could cause injury," said Dr.
August. "But coyotes are prob-
ably at the top of the list." And
although coyotes are not native
to Florida, in recent years, they
have been found here in increas-
ing numbers.
Outdoor cats are not only the
prey, but they also can be the
predator as well. Hundreds of
frogs, rats, mice, birds and other
animals are killed by cats daily.
While the cat may think they are
playing a friendly game of chase,
the end of the game doesn't al-
ways turn out so friendly for the
other animal.
While playing these games,
pets wander far from home. Once
they realize how far they've gone,


many cannot find their way back.
Thousands of lost cats are turned
into shelters every year, many
of which will never be found or
taken into a new home.
Outdoor cats also contribute
to the overpopulation of felines.
If outdoor cats are not spayed or
neutered, that leaves them able
to reproduce at an unnecessary
rate.
Currently, more cats are be-
ing born than are being adopted,
which leaves shelters full and
leads to thousands of cats being
euthanized.
Curiosity is one of cats' worst
enemies. The chance of a cat be-
ing hit by a car and living through
the experience is small. One

she was affectionately known by
her numerous nieces, nephews
and friends was the matriarch of
this great family.
She met the man of her
dreams, Mr. Roy C. Rushin while
living in Melbourne and they were
married after a
courtship. The
couple did not
have any chil-
dren but instead,
their hearts
were filled with
an abundance
of love to meet
the needs of the Sallie Maxey
family. The un- Rushin
expected death
of her beloved sister-in-law, Cora
Maxey, had a tremendous impact
on her children. Sallie and Roy
Rushin joyfully invited Eugene,
Delores and Georgia to come and
live with them.
Mrs. Rushin was preceded in
death by her beloved husband,
Roy C. Rushin and her son, Eu-
gene.
Mrs. Rushin can be best de-
,scribed as totally committed.
Throughout her life she exempli-
fied the walk and talk of a virtuous
woman. She has a long extensive
history of dedicated service in
the Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist
Church and Kissimmee Valley As-
sociation. As a faithful member,
she served in the choir, Pulpit Aid
Club and Women's Ministry.
Her service extended beyond
her church as she heeded the
Master's call. She was a woman in
the fields that we call the "streets
of life" winning souls for Christ.
She is now reunited with her
husband, parents, siblings and
son. What a great reunion. She
left her footprints in the sand of
time. Her wish is that other family
members will be inspired to carry
on the Lord's work as she did.
She leaves a legacy of love and
dedicated service to be cherished
by her children, Delores Maxey of
Pahokee and Georgia Maxey and

wrong judgment in speed or dis-
tance can easily lead to tragedy.
Although this is horrible to imag-
ine, it is a very common situation
seen by veterinarians.
With the large amount of
diseases attacking outdoor cats,
medical bills can soar. That's not
even including the price of pay-


ing for injuries from cat fights or
other accidents that may occur.
"Medical bills should be cheaper
for indoor cats," said Dr. August.
"The problem is that many out-
door pet owners don't bring their
pets in to see us as often, so while
they may not have fees to pay,
their pet may not be healthy."

portunity.
Participants will explore criti-
cal issues and discover priceless

lowed very closely with the Octo-


ber orientation "kick-off" dinner,
the program will consist of one
day a month (excluding Decem-
ber) for six informative educa-
tion days. A May recognition and
graduation dinner will conclude
the class
Participates of the program
will experience such topics as
judicial and government, busi-
ness and agri-business, growth
management, health and educa-
tion, civic and cultural, and water
and environment issues gaining
deeper insight into the special
problems and assets facing our
counties.
A class of twenty (20) will be

Multiple Sclerosis support group to meet


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Long-time
Clewiston resident Mollie Taylor
is hoping to have one of her local
goals come true.
Mollie Taylor was diagnosed
with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
when she. was just 17 years old.
Although she has learned to cope
with the condition - she's married
and has three wonderful children
-- oftentimes she's wished she
could talk with others who also
have MS.
Noting that there are no sup-
port groups locally where people


could get together, share their
experiences and talk about their
struggles and triumphs, Mollie is
hoping that other residents with
the same. affliction would share
her interest in starting one.
According to her, the closest
support group is in Ft. Myers. The
second-closest is in Ft. Lauder-
dale.
"I know there is are lot of local
individuals with MS who would
like to have a support group here
in Clewiston," added Mollie.
Hopefully, she said, readers
will take an interest and help her
form one.


Mollie is currently working
with the Hendry Glades Behav-
ioral Health Clinic to have the use
of their conference room for the
group's planned monthly meet-
ings.
"It will be fun and interesting
once I can start it," said Mollie,
"It's not only for the actual person
with Multiple Sclerosis but their
families can come, too."
According to Mollie, the group
will be able to get together and
share their concerns about how
to cope with the illness.
"With the help of the Hispanic
Outreach, we will make every


effort to have the support group
started," said Mollie. "We need
those interested individuals with
MS, to speak up and become part
of the group.
"We will make any arrange-
ments wherever possible for
transportation for those who need
it, in order to make this happen,"
Millie added.
For more information on the
MS support group contact Mollie
Taylor at (863) 983-7156 or Ana
Rivera at (863) 983-1423.

Glades General honors local nurses


BELLE GLADE - Elaine Gul-
ley, R.N. was honored with the
First Annual R.N. of the Year
award for her dedication, service,
compassion and commitment to
the patients and fellow staff at
Glades General Hospital
For the first time in its history,
Glades General Hospital named
an R.N. of the Year, L.P.N. of
the Year, C.N.A. of the Year and
gave an Extra-Mile Award to staff
whose contributions to nursing


have made a profound impact on
patient care and fellow employ-
ees at GGH.
Individuals nominated had to
consistently display dedication to
excellence beyond the scope of
his/her job, serve as an inspira-
tion to others, discover new ways
to assist those in need and display
compassion and caring on a daily
basis.
These minimal requirements
had to be demonstrated by exam-


ples of community service, will-
ingness to help, positive attitude,
dependability, and compassion.
Nominations came from fel-
low employees and managers.
"We were very pleased with the
number and quality of nomina-
tions", saidMary Weeks, RN and
Chief Nursing Officer. "It was
a wonderful affirmation of the
compassionate and highly skilled
nurses that care for our patients
on a daily basis."


Healthy Start program helps with the 'unexpected'


All babies deserve a healthy
start in life, but the unfortunate
reality is that too many babies are
at risk for health problems before
they are even born. Many times,
these risks can be eliminated
when the mom-to-be receives
some basic education, guidance
and encouragement.
To ensure that possible risk
factors are considered, expectant
moms should ask their doctor or
nurse to complete, a Healthy Start
Prenatal Risk Screening form.
The form asks a series of simple
questions that allows healthcare


providers to identify potential
risks and link moms to available
services provided through their
local Healthy Start coalition and
community resources.
Completing the Healthy Start
Prenatal Risk Screen is valuable
for all mothers regardless of age,
race or economic status. Risk
factors that could result in a pre-
term or low-birth-weight baby do
not discriminate and identifying


them early enough can make a
significant difference.
Some women incorrectly as-
sume that because their family
income is too high, they will not
qualify for help. This is not the
case. If health factors mean the
baby is at risk, help is available
regardless of income level.
New moms also should ask
their delivery provider, pediatri-
cian or family doctor about the


Healthy Start Infant Risk Screen, a
set of questions that help moms
find out if there is anything about
their baby's health at birth that
could affect his or her first year
of life. And, as with the Prenatal
Screen, all answers are kept pri-
vate and all services are free.
For more on the Healthy Start
screens, visit www.HealthyS-
tartBaby.com or call 1-800-451-

Farmers urged to heed upcoming deadline


GAINESVILLE - Farmers and
landowners with base acres and
yields have until Aug. 3, to enroll
in the 2007 Direct and Counter-cy-
clical Payment Program (DCP).
The DCP provides payments
to eligible producers on farms en-
rolled in the program for the 2002
through 2007 crop years. There
are two types of DCP payments
- direct payments and counter-cy-
clical payments. USDA computes
payments using the base acres


and payment yields established
for the farm. The Farm Security
and Rural Investment Act of 2002
(2002 Farm Bill) authorized DCP.
"Eligible producers should
enroll in DCP before the Aug. 3,
deadline to avoid paying a late
fee," said Kelley. Producers failing
to sign up by Aug. 3, but before
Sept. 30, will have to pay a late-
file fee of $100.
Farm producers must apply for
DCP on an annual basis and can


opt out of participating in DCP for
any year if they so choose.
In March 2007, FSA extended
the DCP sign-up deadline to Aug.
3.
The original DCP enrollment
deadline was June 1. The final
date to enroll in the 2007 DCP is
Sept. 30. Enrollment in DCP for
the 2007 contract period began
Oct. 1, 2006.
Interested farmers or land-
owners are asked to contact the
local FSA office at for information


on program eligibility and the re-
quired documents necessary for
sign-up.
More information about DCP
is also available in the program
fact sheet found online at: http://
www.fsa.usda.gov/Internet/FSA_

LAKELAND - Citrus greening
has been confirmed for the first
time in Hardee County, one of
Florida's largest citrus producing
counties.
The disease, also known as
huanglongbing, was found in a
commercial grove just north of
the DeSoto County line.
Hardee County is home to
more than 45,000 acres of citrus
making it the sixth largest citrus
producing county in Florida, ac-
cording to the United States De-
partment of Agriculture.
"Growers are doing all they can
to manage this disease but the key
to beating it once and for all is re-
search," said Michael W. Sparks,
executive vice president/CEO of
'Florida Citrus Mutual. "We're
moving in that direction, but we,

WEST PALM BEACH - The
Governing Board of the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict today adopted a resolution
assuring that Everglades restora-
tion projects completed as part of
the state's accelerated construc-
tion initiative will, first and fore-
most, benefit the natural .system.
The resolution also commits that
the water made available for the
natural system will be dedicated
for that purpose and will be pro-
tected from allocation to water
users. This action provides clear
direction that the priority purpose
of the projects is to address envi-
ronmental needs and establishes
consistency with the new region-
al water availability rule that went
into effect in April limiting with-
drawals from the famed River of
Grass to meet future \ after supply
- needs.
"We are fully committed to
the joint federal-state partnership
to restore America's Everglades
and these steps ensure that wa-
ter intended for the restoration
and protection of South Florida's
natural systems is safeguarded
from other uses," said SFWMD
Governing Board Chairman Eric
Buermann. "Our goal has always
been twofold: to keep the positive
restoration momentum moving
forward and to maximize con-
sistency of our Acceler8 projects
with the federal process."
Approved by Congress in 2000
as part of the Water Resources


"Growers are doing all they can to manage this
disease but the key to beating it once and for all
is research. We're moving in that direction, but
we must continue. I'm confident we can beat
this disease through aggressive and well-funded
research coupled with best management practices
at the grove level."

can beat this disease through ag-
gressive and well-funded research
coupled with best management
practices at the grove level."
Citrus greening is a bacterial
disease that reduces production
and can kill trees. It has signifi-
cantly reduced citrus production
in Asia, Africa, the Arabian Penin-


sula, and Brazil. The disease spe-
cifically attacks citrus plants and
presents no threat to humans or
animals.
Citrus greening is primarily
spread by the Asian citrus psyllid.
Florida Citrus Mutual and other
industry groups are working to
secure state and federal dollars


Development Act (WRDA), the
Comprehensive Everglades Res-
toration Plan, (CERP) included
provisions for the reservation
or allocation of any new water
created by the projects through
agreed-upon federal and state
processes. Since then, the District
has imposed limitations on per-
mits for Everglades water to ad-
dress environmental concerns on
the assumption that CERP would
be implemented as scheduled.
In October 2004, the state an-
nounced Acceler8, a far-reaching
initiative to expedite the funding,
design and construction of a se-
ries of critical Everglades resto-
ration projects that will restore
70,000 acres of wetlands, expand
water treatment areas and pro-
vide 425,000 acre-feet of addition-
al water storage a decade ahead
of schedule. Construction of five
of the eight Acceler8 projects is
under way.
"In advance of Congressional
authorization and funding of in-
dividual Everglades projects, the
state has stepped up the pace on
construction and protection initia-
tives," said SFWMD Executive Di-
rector Carol Ann Wehle. "Today's
action assures the public and our
various partners that the opera-
tion of these projects will contin-
ue to be consistent with the intent
outlined in the Water Resources
Development Act of 2000, and
that the water made available for
the natural system will, indeed,

Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
in 1948 and based in Lakeland, is
the state's largest citrus grower's
organization with nearly 10,000
members. The Florida citrus in-
dustry employs 90,000 workers
and has a $9 billion economic

be identified and protected."
While moving forward on a
parallel track, construction of the
Acceler8 projects is outpacing the
completion of federally-mandat-
ed reports. Environmental groups
and other stakeholders have ex-
pressed a strong desire for the
South Florida Water Management
District to maintain consistency
with the federal process when
constructing the CERP-related
Acceler8 projects, including the
development and completion of
Project Implementation Reports
and subsequent rulemaking pro-
cesses.
"While the resolution is not a
legal requirement, we believe it
is the right thing to do," said Ken
Ammon, the District's Deputy Ex-
ecutive Director for Everglades
Restoration. "It clearly .captures
and outlines the District's com-
mitment to comply with the
WRDA 2000 provisions to reserve
and provide water for the envi-
ronment."
Once Congress authorizes a
Project Implementation Report
which encompasses a completed
and operating Acceler8 project,
any existing or interim protection
measures and operation plans
will be reviewed and modified
where necessary to ensure con-
sistency. All processes and rule-
making actions include various
opportunities for public involve-
ment and comment.

By Tom Denham
CLEWISTON - Carl Abbott
was in trouble - big trouble,
even though he was 14 years old.
His charge was criminal misbe-
havior, but there was a felony of
grand theft auto involved, and
the judge was ready to send him
to a Level 8 facility. In Florida,
Level 8 juvenile facilities look
more like prisons than rehabilita-
tive programs.
His parents, along with help
from a few others in the com-
munity who knew Carl, pleaded
with the judge to send him to
Eckerd.
"We said the school system
really isn't handling him well
anyway, but that he wasn't really
a bad kid, he's just got into some
mischief," said his father, Tom.,
"They finally convinced the
judge to send him to Camp E-
Tu-Makee in Clewiston. Carl was
unimpressed.
"When I first came to camp,
I didn't think it was going to do
much for me, basically because
I was a knucklehead," Carl said.
"My plan was to do my time and
get out."
He was in camp a total of one
year and two weeks, and itwasn't
until about the sixth month that
he realized he was changing.
"It turned out to be very thera-
peutic," Carl said. "Going on river
trips and doing the ropes course
taught me how to socialize and
that I didn't have to be aggressive
all the time. It helped me adjust
to society." But it took awhile for
him to realize it.

Carl Abbott has a much brighter future these days. His re-
cent high school graduation was a day of pride for him and
his parents as well. He plans to attend college soon and
wants to join ROTC to help prepare him for the military.


"It wasn't instantaneous,"
Carl said. "It happened at about
my six-month mark. "I woke up
to the fact that it was going to be
a real positive experience."
But his parents said they


could realize a difference during
his first home visit.
"He was more polite and
more willing to help around
here with what we needed to get
done," said his father. "He was


definitely more compliant with
our wishes."
They also noticed when they
visited the camp that Carl was
the leader.
"It was subtle little things, but
you could tell they looked up to
him."
Even though his parents re-
alized what a dramatic change
it had made in their son, it was
a full two years after he left the
camp that he realized how much
he got out of the experience.
"I was in FFA (Future Farmers
of America) and eventually I be-
came the senior leader of the for-
estry group. I used all the camp
experiences I learned in solving
the problems the new kids had
in our club. I sat down with them
and dealt with their issues. I had
to teach the green kids the ropes,
and when I counseled them,
I definitely used everything I
learned at camp."
Carl said he still sees some of
the kids he knew before he went
to camp and their lives don't ap-
pear to be headed anywhere.
"They are much worse than they
were when I was hanging out
with them, still into drugs and
criminal activity."
Carl recently graduated from
high school, is working at a CVS
Drug Store and is planning on
college. He wants to join the
ROTC so he can join the Army as
an officer after graduation.
His big trouble is now in the
past and now he has a big, bright
future ahead of him.

SCrew brings new life to South Bay


South Bay arrived.
Lt. Geraldine Jaramillo, first
on the scene with her fire engine
crew and the only Spanish speak-
er on the crew, was faced with
a hysterical family member and
patient that only spoke Spanish.
Upon quickly assessing the situ-
ation, Lt. Jaramillo, the only para-
medic on the scene, was able to
determine that tho five-month


pregnant mother was preparing
to deliver imminently. The crew,
with Lt. Jaramillo's leadership,
sprung into action and began
preparations for the birth. It was
only a matter of seconds, after
moving the mother to a more
lighted spot in the house,' before
the baby was delivered still in its
protective sack.
Within a few addition rmin-


utes, an ambulance from Ameri-

and transported the mother and
the newborn baby girl to Glades

condition. Lt. Jaramillo and her
crew performed exception-

and difficult circumstances and
brought the situation under con-

Nail salon and spa opens in Clewiston


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - New salon
owners in Clewiston are excited
to bring their many years of expe-
rience specializing from treating
the tip of fingernails to the top of
the toes.
Kristy and .7i,:,', Nguyen
opened the new business just a
few weeks ago, on June 30.
The couple and business part-
ners recently relocated to Clew-
iston from Pembroke Pines to
achieve one of their goals: open-
ing their own business doing
what they love and enjoy doing.
Before going into to business,


they both worked for other salons
for over fifteen years, gathering
experience and techniques to
better themselves to provide top-
quality service to their own cus-
tomers.
"I love this work," Mrs. Nguyen
said. "Everyone's always happy to
see you. I don't know anyone who
feels down because they're get-
ting a manicure or a pedicure."
According to Mrs. Nguyen,
she takes pride in offering the
very best quality products at her
salon.
"We want our customers to
feel good with our service," she
said. "Offering top quality prod-
ucts as well as good services will


give you a customer forever."
The salon offers spa pedicures,
paraffin wax, full body waxing,
eyelash extensions and full nail
services, including gel and acryl-
ic.
"We are people friendly," said
Mrs. Nguyen. "And we appreciate
our customers," she added.
The Nguyens hope to offer
a variety of other services like,
permanent make-up and spray
tanning services in the near fu-
ture and are currently looking for
manicurists to expand the shop's
current services.
The Nail Salon and Spa is lo-
cated in downtown Clewiston, 114
E. Sugarland Highway and Bond


Street.
It is open seven days a week,
on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to
7:30 p.m., Thursdays 8:30 a.m. to
9 p.m., Fridays 8:30 to 7:30 p.m.,
Saturday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and
Sunday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

in Clewiston to take new and
original photos of the children in
pornographic poses.
When the suspect arrived at
the Relax Inn in Clewiston on
Wednesday, July 18, officers were
waiting for him. He was arrested
and taken to jail.
For Assistant Chief of Police
Kristine Petersen, the arrest means
that there is one less predator on
the streets.
Crimes against children, and
those of a sexual nature, deeply
offend her.

opportunities for Hendry County
residents to continue to meet their
needs or simply expand them,
whether it is for work, medical
care or even for school. For some,
it is the only means of transpor-
tation they have and it will really
hurt them if it would be discontin-
ued," she said.
Presently, riders can choose
to pay each way on a trip to and
from Palm Beach County. They
can also pay on a daily or monthly

Mrs. Petersen. "I will never see
photos of that."
. She remained happy that the
suspect was caught.
"We are very pleased every
time an investigation leads to an
arrest of this issue," the assistant
chief said. "It is one less out there
exposed to our children, but we
have to keep in mind there is al-'
ways someone else waiting to
take thee place," said Mrs. Peter-
son.
According to Mrs. Petersen,
after the suspect was arrested the
investigators searched several of
his online e-mail accounts and
found a large amount of child por-
nography images.
The suspect is facing charges


basis and the bus currently arrives
at each bus stop every two hours.
It makes 27 stops throughout
Clewiston to accommodate resi-
dents.
Because the services were
funded by FDOT, the county is
now tasked with deciding wheth-
er it wants to pay approximately
$66,300 annually to continue the
bus service.
"We really don't want to see
this route discontinued and if the
Hendry County Commissioners
decide not to fund the route, we
will try to seek other means of
funding," said Ms. Morlock. "If
none are found before this year is


the Hispanic Outreach Program,
we want to continue this yearly
campaign," Mrs. Rivera said. "We
want to help those children who
come from low income family to
be able to go to school ready."
She makes her plea to the
community.
"We truly appreciate any type
of help, whether it is money to
purchase uniforms or supplies we
are thankful," Ms. Rivera said.

pornography, one count enticing
a guardian to permit a minor to
engage in sexual conduct, and
one count transmission of child
pornography.
According to the police depart-
ment, the suspect is being held in
the Hendry County Jail awaiting
bond hearing.
"You. know all criminals, no
matter what the crime they have
done, are equally important to
us to capture. We don't have set
preferences," said Mrs. Petersen.
"They all have terrible, terrible im-
pacts on families, just in different
ways."

have to be discontinued on De-
cember 31 of this year."
* The county is expected to dis-
cuss the item during its budget
meeting in a couple of weeks.
They will then make a final deter-
mination.
Ms. Morlock remains hopeful.
"If it is not approved, it will be
very devastating for many Hendry
County residents, because that
would mean they won't be able
to get to their destinations any-
more," she said.

record of 4-0 with a 1.09 earned
run average and four saves. He al-
lowed only 25 hits in 41.1 innings,
walking just 14 and striking out
38. Opposing batters hit only .188
against Blackwell.
Blackwell is a product of the
University of South Carolina,
where he led the nation in saves
in 2004. He was drafted by the
Kansas City Royals in June of


2004 and spent two seasons in
the Royals organization before
spending the 2006 season in the
Pittsburg Pirates organization.
Blackwell becomes the 16th
RailCats player to be sold to a ma-
jor league organization. He hopes
to join pitcher Tim Byrdak and
outfielder Nathan Haynes as play-
ers to play in the major leagues
after playing for the RailCats.

Dear Lord, am I too comfortable?


By Jackie Miller,
minister First Christian
Church, Clewiston
I live in a Nation where my
freedom was (is) purchased by
the sacrifices of others; therefore,
many times I forget that political
freedom is costly and that it was
uncomfortable for those who
purchased my freedom.
I live in a home adequate for
my needs. It is warm in the win-
ter and cool in the summer. The
rain and hail cannot penetrate its
roofs and walls. But Lord, I did


not build that house. I did not buy
one stick of wood or one brick.
I did not work one hour to con-
struct it. Loving, considerate, dar-
ing people, who lived before me,
sacrificed in order that I might live
in such a house. They became un-
comfortable in order that I might
be comfortable - sweating in the
hot sun as they labored.
Lord, I worship in a Church
Building I did not build. It is ade-
quate for my needs and the needs
of many others. In fact, Lord,
it would accommodate two or


three times as many as customar-
ily attend services.
Lord, I enjoy a Fellowship with
you and with Christian people.
I can lay my head on my pillow
at night and be conscious of my
sins and shortcomings and at the
same time, be aware that when I
confess them, they are forgiven (I
John 1:9). You experienced great
suffering and death in order that I
might be comforted.
Lord, is it possible that I am
too comfortable? The only reason
others are not enjoying all these


things is because I am unwill-
ing to be uncomfortable to help
them enjoy them. Am I too po-
litically complacent; letting others
shoulder the responsibility to pro-
vide "the land of the free and the
home of the brave"?
Am I impervious of the fact
that there are hundreds, yea thou-
sands, within a short distance of
this comfortable church building
who need to know You and the
salvation that You alone can give?
Am I too comfortable to get out
and make it happen.


When a child does well, the Father glories

'P.


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
My dog-child Pepper won "The
Most Patriotic Pet" award at Clew-
iston's Fourth of July celebration
this month. Even though I never
thought I would admit that I would
call myself the parent of a four
legged creature, I remembered
what my own father had shared
with me about the feelings of ec-
stasy that are felt when your child
does well. I was a proud papa and
Pepper made me proud.
Truth be known, it was raining
hard right before the competition
and I was one of the few who
dragged my dog out to the contest
and Pepper was the only one in her
category, but that didn't matter to
Pepper. Actually, she was having
so much fun meeting and greeting
the other dogs and people with
me, that the contest wasn't even a
consideration. It didn't matter that
the weather was inclement or that
she was wearing a shirt she had


never worn before. Her master
had dressed her and she was with
her master and that was all that
really mattered
to her.
The next day
we had a vet ad-
venture. It was
storming and
Pepper doesn't
like thunder, but
she was doing
okay, because John
she was with Hicks
her master. She
also didn't like the idea of be-
ing probed and given shots. But
again, the master's hand and hold
kept her from losing it completely
(although she was a little bit more
"nippy" to others than usual).
Everywhere I go, Pepper wants
to go. She walks me to the door
when I leave each day and she
anxiously looks for me to return
each night so she can greet me
with a wagging tail and puppy-
dog kisses. The neighbors across
the street have a white pickup


truck like mine. If they get home
before I do, Pepper can't under-
stand where I was and why I'd
park my truck over there.
But for Pepper, it is more than
just wanting to be with her mas-
ter, she wants to relate and inter-
act with him. She brings her toys
to me so 1 can play with her. She
wants to jump in my lap and have
me rub her belly. That is not to say
that Pepper doesn't have her mo-
ments. But the displeasure of not
being in her master's presence or
good graces has always brought
her back.
I've learned a lot about being
a disciple from watching our dog.
You see, Pepper's big issue is basic:
"Where is my master right now?"
The dog made her decision where
she'll be wherever her master is
so she can walk with him and do
things with him and let him know
she is his own; and the joy we
share as we tarry there, is one of
the best things ever known.
So it is with a disciple of Jesus.
Where is my Master? I don't care


where it takes me or what I have
to go through, I just want to be
where my Master is. I want to walk
with Him and relate with Him and
let Him know I am His own.
In John 12:26, Jesus says,
"Whoever serves Me must fol-
low Me; and where I am My ser-
vant also will be." Jesus is talking
about the central response of
a disciple. "Find out where my
master is going and I'm going to
go there, too." This kind of alle-
giance to the Master's direction is
what being a disciple is all about.
It's not just about having the right
beliefs. It's not just about hanging
around with the right people. We
want to be where our master is as
He wants to move deeper into our
lives. As He moves in that place
where we work, where we play,
and where we serve, let us fol-
low His lead there as well. Let us
follow where our Master is going
and contribute to what He's trying
to do with dog-like faithfulness.
After all, the anagram for D.O.G.
stands for Depend On God!

Want to help? It may all be in the timing "neWSZap.com-


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church,
Clewiston
Someone coined the phrase
"learning by consequences" and
I had seen it long before I learned
that it had been identified. I used
to help my father - -
with household
needs when I
was growing .,
up. We'd tackle
some project,
but every now . jL
and then, we'd
run into an ob-
stacle when it Samuel S.
came to getting Thomas
the car run-
ning again or fixing the washing
machine. I'd stand by and watch
the "project director" choose a
course of action, but he wasn't
always successful. He'd try some-
thing else to see if that might
work, but sometimes it didn't
work either. I had to watch and
then, when all else failed, suggest
"Why don't we...?" There came
a moment of optimal readiness
to listen. It didn't really do any

good to offer suggestions along
the way until that time arrived. It
wasn't that my father was short-
sighted or incompetent, or limited
in his vision or understanding of
how things went together or that
he lacked ability; it was just that
there might have been something
that he didn't see. That would be
my contribution to the project if it
was needed, but it had to come at
the right moment.
Many of the things I've learned
and that others have learned,
have come at the moment we
were ready to hear them and not
before. There is a long jump be-
tween Jesus telling Peter "Come,
follow me and I will make you
fishers of men (Matthew 4:19)"
and the sharp rebuke to him;
"Get behind me Satan! You are
a stumbling block to me, you do
not have in mind the things of
God but the things of men (Mat-
thew 16:23)."You can imagine the
picture of Peter's discipleship be-
ing "nipped in the bud" if Jesus
began with a sharp rebuke rather
than a call.
There is a moment of readi-
ness involved here, as there is in
each of our lives. There is a time


when a potential confrontation
becomes a means of help and a
positive source for change and
not as a means of alienation or
putting up barriers and shutting
others out. In my experience, the
door begins to open when there
is an acknowledgement that "the
old way isn't working." When
that moment comes and it is usu-
ally best recognized by the active
parties involved rather than the
observers, the way is opened to
offer something as a true helper.
Husbands don't always like to be
told things by wives, wives don't
always like to be told things by
husbands, bosses don't always
like to be told things by their em-
ployees, employees observations
aren't always appreciated by their
bosses, children resent "do-as-
you're-told" edicts from parents,
parents get short-tempered when
they remember, "When I was
your age..." and so it goes. The
answer is, of course, waiting for
the right moment...if we have the
luxury to do so. Apparently, Peter
was a better disciple than fisher-
man, but Jesus knew he had to
grow into it. When I am anxious
to learn, I am more ready to listen


than when I think I know all that
there is to know. An indication
that I don't know is when things
aren't working out quite as well as
I'd like. That's a sign to get'ready
to listen.
There have been times when
I've ended my input to a meeting
because someone said "Listen,
I know all about it" and when
I didn't really believe that they
knew at all. It was simple; there
was no moment of readiness;
that would have to come at a later
time. In the meantime, I might
have something to learn, too,
about why a person was so com-
mitted to their way or what else
might have been involved that I
had not seen. People and things
do change; look at our history,
our current events; our own rela-
tionships. They change it seems,
in God's time and not always our
time. We contribute when we
seek the right time and keep a
deep respect for those we wish to
help. It's not easy to be a part of
the solution and not the problem,
but it can happen every now and
then - and be a very heavenly mo-
ment.
