New water plant almost ready


Reverse Osmosis
filtration promises
clean drinking water

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- They don't
drink bottled water at the McCar-
thy's.
Although the U.S. Sugar-sup-
plied water that most homes in
Clewiston receive sometimes
carries a bad odor, or a different
hue -- caused by algae blooms in


the lake -- it's perfectly fine water,
sais Kevin McCarthy, Clewiston's
utility director.
"The McCarthy household
doesn't use bottled water," the di-
rector said when asked whether
his family would give up the likes
of Evian and Dasani once the
city's new water treatment plant
comes online in a few weeks.
"If you come into the utili-
ties department, you won't find
bottled water, other than what
the guys use in the field," Mr. Mc-
Carthy added.
Still, for thousands of water
customers in the city, staring


down a glass of water with an
uncertain smell is enough mo-
tivation to stop by the local gro-
cery store for several cases of
bottled water.
"It stinks, the water doesn't
taste great. I'll agree with every-
body else," said Mr. McCarthy --
who is on the brink of setting up
a new water system that prom-
ises to change that.
Clewiston's new water treat-
ment plant, located on Olympia,
is finished with construction and
only last-minute details have to
be wrapped up before it is offi-
cially activated.


Promoting literacy: High School students read


INI,'Jose -aragoza
Labrena Coleman had the full attention of Miss Tippett's Second-grade class when she
read a book to them. Ms. Coleman was one of several students at Westside Elementary
on Tuesday participating in the Book Week activities.


The staff at Westside Elementary celebrated Pajama Day on Tuesday. Kathy Crosby,
Debbie Keen, Ramona Rentas, Nora Richmond, Lacy Itzen, Barbara Scruggs and Bren-
da Itzen joined in the fun.


When that happens, the state-
,of-the-art system will provide
clean drinking water that the city
claims will be as clean as water
purchased in stores.
"It's as clean as you can get
without going into a distillery,"
said Mr. McCarthy.
Under the most technical
terms, the water from custom-
ers' faucets will not be exactly the
same as bottled water. The direc-
tor explained that municipalities
are required by the Department
of Environmental Protection to
inject various safe chemicals in
the water once it has been pro-


cessed by the main plant.
With the miles of distribution
lines, the water must be protect-
ed by chlorine to prevent bacteria
growth and a corrosion inhibiter
to protect the lines themselves
having to run the many gallons
of water that services the city
throughout the day. Fluoride is
also added to prevent tooth de-
cay.
The city has been preparing
to officially turn on the system
for weeks now, but Mr. McCar-
thy explains that a gamut of tests

County weighs



$500,000 gift


Commissioners:
HCSO sub-station
project on hold

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - A $500,000
gift sounds good, but Hendry
County is having some reserva-
tions about it.
At issue is the half-million
that Port LaBelle has offered
to give the county to build a
sheriff's office sub-station in
that area.
The, increased police pres-
ence should help to curb crimi-
nal activity, " hile giving the
sheriff's office a much-needed
facility for officers.
Port LaBelle has offered the


land and the money to build,
but Hendry County would like
more information to be avail-
able before it commits to giving
the project its okay.
The issue becomes more
understandable when the fac-
tors surrounding it, including
regular maintenance and up-
keep, are taken into account.
'The county simply can-
not vote to accept the money
without first knowing exactly
how much the facility will cost
to support on an annual basis,
commissioners said.
"I'm still not opposed to it,
but we need to understand the
operational costs," said Com-
missi.:er IKevin M'kcCarth dur-
ing the Noy. 13 county meeting
in Clewiston.

Tigers wrestling


team looks to


have big season


By Naji Tobias
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Looking
forward to the season opener
on Tuesday at the high school,
the Tigers wrestling team hopes
to make an impact.
A visit to the Al Morrell Field-
house during the team's after-
noon practices shows how seri-
ous the team is about doing big


things.
The team is learning the
basics of the sport and takes
practices so seriously that it's
evident where the program is
headed.
Jesse Alford, who was the
wrestling coach for three years,
is no longer with the high school

City recognizes Veteran's Day


Short ceremony
marks
remembrance

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Grown
men and grown women cried
on Monday at Clewiston's Civic
Park.
The day was a perfect set-
ting for the Veteran's Ceremo-
ny, with a clear sky and a softly
blowing wind.
A large crowd gathered at
the park on Nov. 12 at 11 a.m.
Some of the people were vet-
erans themselves who have


served during times of war.
The principal speaker was,
Wendell Johnson, Clewiston
city manager and himself a vet-
eran.
"I'm so proud to stand here
this morning and claim the
privilege of being a veteran,"
the administrator said.
The manager, who as a
young man developed a fear
of serving in the military after
watching wartime broadcasts
of the soldiers who died every
day in wars, said he believes
that all Americans should be
required to serve.
"There's no way you can
understand it unless you expe-
rience it," Mr. Johnson said.
Mali Chamness, Clewiston


mayor, provided introductor\
remarks and introduced the
guests for the morning. She
urged residents to rernember
the contributions that all eter.
ans have made to ensure the
nation's freedom. .
The Clewiston Police Ex-
plorers conducted the flag fold-
ing ceremony, while Kristine
Petersen, assistant police chief,
explained the significance; of
each of the 13 folds.
Pastor John Hicks, Joanne
Stiles and Donald McCraine
also participated.
Mr. McCraine, the command-
er of VFW Post 4185, provided
some thoughtful remarks.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


................. - ZZ

Thursday. November 15. 2007 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Nov. 16-22 proclaimed National Farm-City Week


GAINESVILLE - As wise
stewards and innovative entre-
preneurs, dedicated farmers and
ranchers improve our well-being
by working to ensure a healthy
and abundant agricultural sup-
ply. To succeed in this important
enterprise, our farmers rely on
essential partnerships with urban
communities to supply, sell and
deliver finished products across
the country and around the
world. National Farm-City Week,
celebrated annually on the week
leading to and ending on Thanks-
giving Day, recognizes the impor-
tance of this cooperative network
to the success of America's agri-
cultural industry.
"Our farmers know how to
grow the 280 different commodi-
ties that we produce in the state
of Florida," said John Hoblick,
president of Florida Farm Bureau
Federation. "They also know that
it takes many other partnerships
in order for that food to get to
America's table, and it's the suc-
cess of those partnerships that
we celebrate during Farm-City
Week."
Today, the agricultural indus-
try provides us with many of the
necessities of life, such as food,
clothing and fuel for our energy
needs. Agriculture employs more
than 24 million workers includ-
ing farmers, shippers, processors,
marketers, grocers, truck drivers,


inspectors and others in America
who annually contribute more
than $1.3 trillion to our gross do-
mestic product.
Farm-city collaborations help
maintain and improve our na-
tion's food supply and contribute
to a better quality of life for count-
less citizens," said Mr. Hoblick.
"With this Farm-City Week obser-
vance, we commend the many
Americans whose hard work and
ingenuity reflect the true spirit of
America and help ensure a pros-
perous future for all."
Where does Florida agriculture
fit into this equation? Florida has
44,000 farmers who grow more
than 280 different crops on a com-
mercial scale - that's more than
any other state except California
- with cash receipts totaling over
$6.7 billion. Florida agriculture
has an annual impact of $97.8 bil-
lion to the state's economy.
"Through our farm-city part-
nerships, agriculture has an enor-
mous economic impact on our
state," said Mr. Hoblick.
How are they getting the job
done? Florida farmers employed
more than 94,000 farm workers,
and overall the industry supports
over 388,000 jobs in the state.
And what about the environ-
ment? About two-thirds of Florida
is farmland and forests. More than
30 percent is devoted to agricul-
ture, which includes crop produc-


tion as well as improved pastures,
woodlands and open spaces, and
nearly 40 percent, representing
commercial forestry, is covered
with trees. These well-managed,
productive lands help preserve
Florida's environment by provid-
ing green space, conserving water
and protecting wildlife habitat.
Farmers and ranchers, grow-
ers and producers, care about
their environment. According to
a U.S. Geological Survey report,
Florida farmers reduced their
groundwater withdrawals 7 per-
cent by installing more efficient
irrigation systems and imple-
menting other Best Management
Practices (BMPs) such as using
reclaimed wastewater and stored
rainfall. During the same period,
withdrawal for public supply in-
creased by 7 percent due to pop-
ulation growth. Agricultural crops
provide the same environmental
benefits 'as natural vegetation.
Plants and trees emit water into
the atmosphere through transpi-
ration, contributing to the hydro-
,logic cycle that produces rainfall.
Once land is paved over it cannot
absorb the water and recharge
the aquifer. Agricultural land does
not waste rainfall. Water not ab-
sorbed by plants or evaporated
into the atmosphere is returned
to the soil where it replenishes
the aquifer and provides ground-
water for other uses.


Agricultural land also provides
homes for Florida's unique wild-
life such as alligators, bald eagles,
panthers and wood storks. Many
farms and ranches have estab-
lished management programs to
maintain wildlife habitat.
With agriculture as a corner-
stone of our nation's security and
way of life, America's farmers
and ranchers provide the safest,
most abundant and most afford-
able food supply in the world. It's
important to remember, though,
that American agriculture reach-
es far beyond the farm or ranch.
It is an industry that includes
many urban and suburban resi-
dents who help process, sell and
trade the nation's food and fiber.
We remember those 24 million
American workers, about 17 per-
cent of the total U.S. workforce,
who are involved.
National Farm-City Week
strives to increase understand-
ing, cooperation and relation-
ships between rural and urban
residents. As this year's com-
memoration again culminates
on Thanksgiving, all Americans
are encouraged to thank some-
one who helps make it possible
for you and your family to enjoy
the bounty of our food supply. It's
a partnership summed up best
whether you are from the farm or
the city as, "Let's eat!"

conduct a public hearing for the proposed Helms Road Extension project. The hearing will
provide interested persons the opportunity to express their views concerning the location,
conceptual design, social, economic, and environmental effects of the proposed extension.
The hearing will be held:

Date/Time: Tuesday, December 11, 2007 at 5:00 p.m.
Location: Hendry County Courthouse - LaBelle, County Commission Chambers
25 East Hickpoochee Avenue (Corner of SR 80 and SR 29)
LaBelle, Florida 33935

The proposed project involves extending Helms Road from SR 80 to SR 29 in Hendry County,
Florida. Over the past year, a study has been underway to provide documented information
necessary for Hendry County to reach a decision on the type, design, and location of
improvements to Helms Road. Right-of-way acquisition is proposed. Potential encroachments
on wetlands and floodplains have been identified as a result of this project and may be given
special consideration under Executive Orders 11990 and 11988.

A regularly scheduled meeting of the Hendry County Board of County Commissioners will
begin at 5:00 p.m. The formal public hearing for the proposed Helms Road Extension project
is on the agenda and will consist of a presentation by the County on the project and its
associated impacts followed by a public comment period.


The environmental documents
and conceptual design plans
prepared for the project will be
available for public review from
November 12, 2007 through
December 21, 2007, at the
Barron Library, 461 N. Main
Street, LaBelle. Hours of
operation are Monday - Friday
10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and'
Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Clean up crew
Clewiston Christian School staff, students from K-3 through
6th grades and their parents gathered at Tiger Stadium over
the weekend in support of the Random Acts of Kindness
Club. Their goal was to assist with cleanup of the football
stadium and the surrounding grounds. Twenty-four partici-
pants picked up garbage with supplies donated by Tripp
Electric Motors of Belle Glade. Efforts were coordinated by
John Polhill and his family and the CCS RAK Club.


Correction


In last week's story about a middle school teacher arrested in con-
nection with soliciting a minor for sex, we incorrectly reported that
J. Scott Holsclaw worked only for Clewiston Middle School. He also
worked at Central Elementary School.


As part of the efforts of the Random Acts of Kindness (RAK)
Club from Clewiston Christian School, RAK Club members
gathered to help with the clean up of Tiger Stadium in Clew-
iston. The group was recently initiated at Clewiston Chris-
tian to encourage the students and faculty to think of others
and to impact the lives of others through visible expres-
sions of unexpected kindness. Part of the mission of CCS
involves leadership development through community ser-
vice. The RAK Club is providing the avenue through which
faculty and students can exhibit the love of Christ in simple,
tangible ways.

OPINION

Sweet potatoes - nutritious, delicious


This Thanksgiving many
American feasts will feature an
all-American food - the sweet
potato.
Sweet potatoes were probably
served at the First Thanksgiving
because Native Americans were
harvesting sweet potatoes before
white men arrived in this coun-
try.
Sweet potatoes are one of
nature's "superfoods." They are
naturally high in vitamins and nu-
trients. The Center for Science in
the Public Interest (CSPI) ranks
the sweet potato as the #1 most
nutritional vegetable.
According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture, one medium
sweet potato contains about 130
calories and has 2.15 grams of
protein; 3.9 grams of dietary fi-
ber; 265.2 mg potassium; 28.6 mg
calcium, 18.2 mcg folate; 29.5 mg
vitamin C and 26081 IU vitamin
A. That means a sweet potato
contains about twice the recom-
mended daily allowance of vita-
min A and more than one-third
of the requirements for vitamin
C. According to the "USDA, there
is more dietary fiber in one sweet
potato than in a bowl of oatmeal.
Sweet potatoes have almost no
fat and are low in sodium.
Sweet potatoes can be served
baked, broiled, steamed, mashed,
"French fried" or baked in a pie.
Sweet potatoes can be many
things - but one thing they are
not is "yams."
Sweet potatoes and yams are
not even in the same plant fam-
ily. Yams grow in tropical and
subtropical regions of the world.
They contain more starch and
sugar and lack some of the vita-
mins found in sweet potatoes.
The confusion between yams
and sweet potatoes probably
started when African slaves re-
ferred to sweet potatoes "nyami"
because sweet potatoes remind-
ed them of the starchy edible
roots found in their native lands.
Later when Louisiana farm-
ers started growing an orange-
fleshed variety of sweet potato,
they marketed them as "American
Yams" or "Louisiana Yams" to
distinguish them from other vari-
eties of sweet potatoes grown in
northern states. At the time, there
was little chance these "American
Yams" would be confused with
real yams because real yams are
not grown in the United States.


A
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken

With trade agreements meaning
more foreign produce may be
founding U.S. grocery stores, it
may be possible find real yams
for sale. But the two vegetables
are easy to tell apart. Real yams
have a rough skin and are usually
yellow or purple. Sweet potatoes
are smooth-skinned and orange.
(Some canned sweet potatoes
are still sold under the "Yams"
name, but under USDA law, must
also be labeled as "sweet pota-
toes.")
When buying sweet potatoes,
look for those that are smooth-
skinned, plump, dry and clean.
They can be stored in any cool,
dry place. They should not be re-'
frigerated unless they have been
cooked. If you used canned sweet
potatoes, one cut of canned
equals about one medium fresh
sweet potato. Canned sweet po-
tatoes are already cooked, so you
may have to adjust recipes to
avoid overcooking.
The following recipes from
the Louisiana Sweet Potato Com-
mission:

Sweet Potato
Pecan Pie
1 (9 - inch) unbaked pastry
shell
1 pound (2 medium) sweet
potatoes, pealed and steamed
until tender
1/4 cup margarine or'butter
1 (14 - ounce) can Eagle Brand
Sweetened Condensed Milk,
(NOT evaporated milk)
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs


Pecan Topping
Instructions: Preheat oven
to 350 degrees F. In large mixer
bowl, beat hot sweet potatoes
with margarine until smooth. Add
remaining ingredients except pas-
try shell and Pecan Topping; mix
well. Pour into pastry shell. Bake
30 minutes. Remove from oven;
spoon Pecan Topping evenly over
top. bake 20 to 25 minutes lon-
ger or until golden brown. Cool.
Serve warm or chilled. Refriger-
ate leftovers.
Pecan Topping: In small.mixer
bowl, combine 1 egg, 3 table-
spoons dark corn syrup, 3 table-
spoons firmly packed light brown
sugar, 1 tablespoon margarine
or butter, melted, and teaspoon
maple flavoring; mix well. Stir in
1 cup chopped pecans.
The Louisiana Sweet Potato
Commission, a division of the
Louisiana Department of Agricul-
ture provided the following sweet
potato facts:
* Sweet potatoes were grown
in Peru as early as 750 BC.
* Native Americans were al-
ready growing sweet potatoes
when Columbus arrived on the
northern continent in 1492.
* Both Louis XV's and Em-
press Josephine's fondness of,
the sweet potato encouraged two
short periods of popularity for this
veggie in Europe in the late 18th
and early 19th centuries.
* African slaves in the South
called the sweet potato "nyami"
because it reminded them of the
starchy, edible tuber of that name
that grew in their homeland. The
Senegalese word "nyami" was
eventually shortened to the word
"yam."1
* When the orange-fleshed,
Puerto Rican variety of sweet
potatoes was adopted by Louisi-
ana producers and shippers, they
called them "American yams" to
distinguish them from the white-
fleshed sweet potatoes grown in
other parts of the country.
* George Washington, the
first U.S. President, was a sweet
potato farmer before becoming
president.
* In 1910, the U.S. Census
Bureau's agricultural statistics


showed that there were more
than 55,000 acres planted with
sweet potatoes in the state of
Louisiana. In 2004 there are ap-
proximately 20,000 acres of sweet
potatoes planted in Louisiana.
* George Washington Carver
was an African-American man
born in Missouri in 1864. He stud-
ied farming and nutrition, and he
began to think of new ways that
poor black farmers could earn
more money. He recommended
planting sweet potatoes and pea-
nuts in soil that was worn out
from growing cotton. When the
farmers tried this, they discovered
that these new crops could grow
very well in that kind of soil. Carv-
er worked to create new uses for
peanuts and sweet potatoes. 'He
made 300 different new prod-
ucts from peanuts and about 100
new products from sweet pota-
toes. Flour, ink, starch, synthetic
rubber, tapioca, vinegar, a type
of glue for postage stamps and
500 shades of textile dye were all
made from sweet potatoes.
* A bad crop of cotton turned
farmers in south Louisiana to
sweet potatoes as a cash crop in
the 1930's. This marks the most
significant period of increased
popularity of sweet potatoes as
the Louisiana product became
known in the nation's markets.
* In the 1943, 124,000 acres of
sweet potatoes were harvested in
Louisiana alone. At that time, 21.7
pounds of sweet potatoes were
consumed per capital annually. In
2004 only 98,000 acres of sweet
potatoes are grown nationwide,
with the average person consum-
ing approximately 4.2 pounds
annually. In 2004, 20,000 acres
of sweet potatoes were planted
in Louisiana. Louisiana produces
,20.3 percent of the annual US
production of sweet potatoes.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise rou-
tine, consult your doctor.
This is especially important if
you are on any prescription
drugs. Some drugs interact
badly with foods that would
otherwise be considered
"healthy."

Clewiston Christian School's (CCS) recent Fall Fest held on
Saturday, Oct. 27, had an extra attraction added along with
fun, games and food. CCS students were encouraged to
reach out with kindness to their guests including parents and
other children from the community.


The recently formed Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Club of
Clewiston Christian School enjoyed their Fall Festival spread-
ing kindness into the community. These CCS students were
just some caught in the act of just being kind. ,


More than 40 people caught - being kind


By Denise Hatton
On Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Fall
Festival sponsored by the city of
Clewiston, the Clewiston Chris-
tian School RAK
Clubcaughtover
40 people doing
good deeds and
showing kind-
ness to others.
Some random
acts of kindness
included parents helping other
children to play games, volunteers
operating booths and handing


out prizes, guests complimenting
displays, children sharing, taking
turns and 'helping others.
Some of the local residents
"Caught Being Kind", were DJ
Jackson, Melissa Ausherman, Ce-
lene Nickel, Sherry Dozie, Arai Vil-
latoro, Charles Nicinski, Kyla Bal-
donado, Kacie Pittman and Grant
Polhill. Even Dr Robert Egley (rep-
resenting the Rotary Club) was
caught offering snow cones to
Fall Festival guests. With so much
goodness in the air, it is easy to
see why our community is a great


place to reside and raise our chil-
dren, and a wonderful place for
community fellowship as well.
Over 40 good deeds were
praised by the Random Acts of
Kindness Club (RAK Club) of the
Clewiston Christian School.
The RAK Club was recently
formed under the direction of
Mrs. Denise Hatton to honor and
practice the teachings of Christ.
Throughout the festival, actions of
love, peace, kindness, gentleness,
etc. were identified and rewarded
by RAK Club students from Clew-


iston Christian. School. Children
received goodie bags and the
adults were given a rose, each
item included a card with further
suggestions for spreading kind-
ness in the community. The CCS
RAK Club desires to create annual
traditions of giving and helping,
and will design fun and creative
ways to inspire and praise others
for their random acts of kindness.
Beef '0' Brady's of Clewiston is
the official sponsor of the Ran-
dom Acts of Kindness Club of the
Clewiston Christian School.

Smokers in the United States urged to quit


CLEWISTON - The Ameri-
can Cancer Society will celebrate
the 31st anniversary of the Great
American" Smoke out" on Thurs-
day, Nov. 15, With exactly half of
the United States now protected
by smoke-free laws and a variety
of cessation resources available,
there has never been a better time
to quit smoking and enjoy the
health benefits,
On Nov. 15, Americans who
smoke and want to quit to are
urged to call the American Cancer
Society's Quitline�, a clinically
proven, free telephone-based
counseling program, at 1-800-ACS-
2345, or to log on to www.cancer.
org/greatamericans, to embark
on a personal plan to quit.
"The American Cancer Society
is here to help smokers who want
to quit, and we have an abun-
dance of resources to .assist..We,
urge smokers to learn more about
quitting and make a plan to begin
a smoke-free life by calling the
Society's Quitline at 1-800-ACS-
2345," said David McClusky 2008
event chair for Relay for Life
The Society's Quitline is a
clinically proven, free telephone-
based counseling program that
is available in 12 states and the
District of Columbia as well as
in more than 75 businesses and
health plans nationwide. Quitline
staff have provided support to
more than 280,000 smokers since
its inception in 2000. Studies have
shown that more than 40 percent
of people who were contacted six
months after completing the Quit-
line program remained smoke-
free, which puts the Society's quit
rates among the highest in the
industry.
The Great American "Smoke
out" Web site (www.cancer.
org/greatamericans) will feature
new desktop helpers, including
a Quit Clock and a Craving' Stop-
per. These tools will be available
by Nov. 1 and can be downloaded
to a computer desktop to help
smokers pick a quit day, prepare
for quitting, and offer support dur-
ing and after quitting. In addition,
the site will continue to provide
tips, tools, and resources, as well
as the successful Quitline call back
feature, which allows smokers to


submit a short form to be directly
contacted by a trained specialist
who will provide assistance dur-
ing a quit attempt.
According to the U.S. Surgeon
General in 1990, people who quit
smoking, regardless of age, live
longer than people who continue
to smoke, and quitting smoking
substantially decreases the risk of
lung, laryngeal, esophageal, oral,
pancreatic, bladder , and cervical
cancers.
In addition to encouraging
smokers to make a plan to quit,
the Great American Smokeout is
a day for Americans to join the
American Cancer Society and its
sister advocacy organization, the
American Cancer Society Cancer
Action NetworkSM (ACS CAN)
in their efforts to advocate for
smoke-free laws in communities
nationWide. . Th-e ,rcorbination
of smoke-free communities and
smoking cessation support is criti-
cal to helping smokers quit and
stay tobacco-free.
"With exactly half of country
now protected by smoke-free


laws, the lifesaving results of
comprehensive tobacco control
efforts in the United States are
clear," added Mr. McClusky "By
continuing efforts to reduce expo-
sure to toxic secondhand smoke,
.and helping more Americans quit
smoking. We will continue to
make progress against cancer."
The American Cancer Society
Great American Smokeout grew
out of a 1971 event in Randolph,
Mass., in which Arthur P. Mul-
laney asked people to give up
cigarettes for a day and donate
the money they would have spent
on cigarettes to a high school
scholarship fund. In 1974, Lynn
R. Smith, editor of the Monticello
Times in Minnesota, spearheaded
. the state's first D-Day, or Don't
Smoke Day. The idea caught on,
and on Nov. 18, 1976, the Cali-
fornia Division of the American
Cancer Society succeeded in get-
ting nearly one million smokers
to quit for the day. That Califor-
nia event marked the first Great
American Smokeout, which went
nationwide the next year.

of Mirtha Graydon. The weather was brisk and so were the
sales. The chapter netted over $300. The proceeds will be
used for various activities and projects. The members of Xi
Beta Tau appreciate the community's support and thank all
those who stopped to shop! We had fun.

NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL DIABETES MONTH
Diabetes affects your body from head to toes. This includes your
eyes. The most common and most serious eye complication of dia-
betes is diabetic retinopathy, which may result in poor vision or
even blindness.
"Retinopathy" is the medical term for damage to the tiny blood
vessels (capillaries) that nourish the retina, the tissue at the back of
your eye that captures light and relays information to your brain.
The high blood sugar levels associated with diabetes often affect
these blood vessels.
Nearly half of people with known diabetes have some degree of
diabetic retinopathy. The longer you have diabetes, the more likely
it is you'll develop diabetic retinopathy. Initially, most people with
diabetic retinopathy experience only mild vision problems. But, the
condition can worsen and threaten your vision.
The threat of blindness is scary. But, with early detection and
treatment, the risk of severe vision loss from diabetic retinopathy is
small. At Family Eye Care, we provide dilated eye examinations to
owd remembered the thoroughly assess ocular health to prevent the development of ocu-
iplated the struggle of lar and medical complications of diabetes. .Please call our office-at
(863) 675-0761 for miibr informationorto-setup- and appoiit-
______ ment.

School Happenings


Eastside Elementary
Fantasy .Theatre Factory, a
professional touring group, from
Miami, came to Eastside Elemen-
tary School to entertain all of
the students Pre-k to
fifth .grade. The per-
formance was made i-.
possible through _, .
a grant sponsored
bytheDepartment ' -.
of Education. The L
theatre group pre-
sented "Little Mon-
ster Tales" created especially for
children for ages 6 to 12.
The not too scary program
was based on materials from the
best in children's literature. Each
performance incorporates and
supports Florida's Sunshine State
Standards.. Fantasy theatre per-
formers use simple props, voice
and music to weave their tales
of suspense. After each perfor-
mance, the theatre group gave
the students an opportunity to
promote communication skills by
asking questions about how the
performance was created.
Victor Reyes, a fifth grader at
Eastside, asked, "What inspired
them to act for children?" One
of the performers said his career
in acting started when he was in-
volved in his high school drama
club. He enjoyed acting and per-
forming for children because he
liked to make children laugh. "
The Clewiston High School's
Drama Club will have the oppor-
tunity to do the same when they
perform for-Eastside's students on
No%. 15, for National Book Week.
These students are creating props
and practicing children's stories
that are entertaining to promote a
love for children's literature.
This opportunity may inspire
Clewiston students to pursue a
career in acting.
Read-A-Thon Fundraiser
Students at Eastside Elemen-
tary took a break from their regu-
lar schedules and had a 1/2 day of
fun and excitement on Nov. 2.
Many students participated in
our Read-A-Thon Fundraiser. All
money raised is going toward
our Accelerated Reader program
which promotes high literacy and
comprehension. All the students
that raised $5 or more were able
to wear their pajamas during the
Read-a-Thon. Students read as
many AR books as they could and
take AR tests during the Read-a-
Thon time. We would'like to con-
gratulate Charnell Broughton of
Mrs. Macks class, she is the first
place winner for raising the most
money, Kacie Durance was our
second place winner and Kody
Durance was our third place winr
ner.
After the Read-A-Thon, Mrs.
Sandy Perry arranged a Scaven-
ger Hunt for all students that met
their AR goals the first 9 weeks.
You could feel the excitement in
the air when students were given
their list of things to find. Our
Scavenger Hunt winners were
Angelica Candelario and Nubia
Zeldon. They both won sleeping-
bags, and all the other Scavenger
Hunt members were given prizes


to choose from. .,
Everyone at Eastside would
like to say "Thank You' to all Our
wonderful students and families
that helped make our day a suc-
cess.

assistant coach for the past two
years, is the head coach.
"I got big shoes to fill from last
year," Coach Gay said. "Coach Al-
ford did a great job with our pro-
gram for the last three years and I
hope we can keep it going. I think
we have a great coaching staff,
a great group of kids and a lot
of support from the community.
That's all I can ask for."
The coaching staff consists of
Tiffany Gay, who is Coach Gay's
wife, and Cory Grizzard.
There are 20 wrestlers that will
be in competition this season, in-
cluding a girl named Jenica Evans
-- all eyes will be on Jenica as she
tries to qualify for the state meet
this season in Lakeland.
Here are some other key wres-
tlers worth watching out for this
season:
a Joey Cordova, who is in his
junior year, finished with a 29-4
record last season and was the
District 12-1A runner up in the 140
lb. weight class. Joey was unde-
feated up until the district meet
and was ranked No. 6 in the state
last year for the 140 lb. class. Jo-


iNI/Naji IODias
Clewiston Tigers wresting head coach David Gay, at left,
helps Randy Massie. Alex Bentancour participates.


ey's primary goal is to become a
state qualifier and hopefully place
there.
* Brandon Caulkins, a junior,
finished with a 32-7 record in the
125 lb. weight class last year. He
finished third in the District 12-
1A 125 lb. weight class and was
ranked No. 7 in the state at his
weight class. As a freshman, Bran-
don was an All-American wres-


tier, ranking as high as No. 8 in
the country. He would like to get
to that point this year, but would
love the finish as one of top three
wrestlers in the state at the end of
the season.
* Damarian Allen, a junior
who is currently playing football,
will return as the only state quali-
fier from last year's team. He was
third overall in the District 12-1A


152 lb. weight class and placed
fourth in the regional meet. Dam-
arian finished 27-5 overall. Mov-
ing up to the 160 lb. weight class,
Damarian's primary goal is to
place in the state meet at Lake-
land.
As a team, the Tigers finished
with a 9-7 record, good for sec-
ond in District 12-1A. This year the
goal is to become district cham-
pions. But in order to accomplish
that goal, the wrestling team has
to beat out district rivals La Belle,
Estero, Immokalee, Golden Gate,
and Naples.
Hopefully, the Tigers wrestling
team will do good enough to be-
come a state qualifying team.
But first, the wrestling team
must convince everyone that they
are a force to be reckoned with.
There's no better time to put,
the talent on display than per-
forming at home next Tuesday
afternoon -- the only home meet
of the season.
"We're expecting our wrestlers
to work hard, be dedicated to the
sport and put out a total effort at
all times," Coach Gay said.
If the team does what's expect-
ed of them, the Tigers fans surely
won't be disappointed.

ready to rebound


The Hendry County Rodeo Association & Youth Livestock
and the 4-H Silver Saddles Horse Club hosted a weekend
campout on Nov 10 and 11. The club invited all Hendry
-. yCounty Rodeo Association and 4-H members to a roping
and barrel racing schooling and horseback riding around
the Caloosa Hammock Ranch adjacent to the Glades-Hen-
" - dry Arena. Many participated in the monthly team penning
practice, camped overnight, and started their Sunday with a
Sunrise Service given by Pastor Pedro Cabrera of the Pio-
neer Baptist Church. Roping instructor, George Humphries,
shows his roping technique at the weekend event hosted by

to bounce back
Coming off a 4-15 record last
year, the girls' basketball team is
looking to finish high in District
4A-11, according to Chris Barraza,
the girls' basketball head coach.
Coach Barraza, who is in his
fourth season, said that he would
like for the girls to focus on re-
ducing turnovers in game, a key
reason for their losing season last
year.
He is teaching the team how to
break the press -- in other words,
getting the ball inbounds across
the court without committing a
turnover.
"We're a young team but we
need to play big this season,"
Coach Barraza said. "We only
*have three returning starters on
our varsity team, but I think we
can get it done this season."
The team lost two key players,
including Nicole Pope, who aver-
aged 19.2 points and 13 rebounds.
per game and Curtiesa Franklin,
a starting point guard who aver-
aged 9 points, 5 assists and 4 re-
bounds per game.
For this season, there will be
10 girls each on the junior varsity
(JV) and varsity levels, according
to Coach Barraza.
"We struggled last year with
a lot of turnovers and hopefully
with Lateisha as our two-guard,
she could help take the load off of
our point guard, who just moved
up from JV," the Coach Barraza
said.
Coach Barraza realizes that the
other teams in the district - Lem-
on Bay, .Estero, Gateway Charter,
La Belle, Riverdale, South Fort My-
ers and Cypress Lake - may have
deeper teams, with as many as 15
girls on a given team. To coun-
teract this impending disadvan-
tage, the girls will be practicing
hard with 30 minutes of running,
which includes running across
the court 17 times every day.
"It's imperative that the girls
are highly conditioned to keep
up with all of the other teams in
the district," Coach Barraza said.
"As long as the girls keep their 2.3
GPA and play as a team, with con-
ditioning we'll be fine in district
play this year."

Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - What are two
things that can derail a team's
season?
Injuries and distractions. Both
can destroy the chemistry of a
sports team.
That's exactly what happened
to both the Clewiston Tigers boys
and girls basketball teams last
season.
This year, however, the teams
are hoping to make their mark.

ber, Mr. McCarthy believes that
the plant will be fully operational,
supplying the city's 3,800 custom-
ers with the clean water.
The city of Clewiston initially
explored the possibility of opting
into the Lake Region Water Treat-
ment Plant that is being built in
Belle Glade, but determined that
the 22-mile pipeline that would
need to be built was costlier than
simply constructing its own plant.

million project," the director said.
What should residents expect
from the new plant?
According to the utilities direc-
tor, a consistently better produc-
tion of water, virtually free of bad
odor, color and taste.
The new plant will draw its
source of water from the Flori-
dan Aquifer, a 100,000 square
mile system that runs throughout
the state and provides water to
Jacksonville and St. Petersburg,
among other cities.

Signing off on the project means
that the county is committing itself
to a number of costs that have not
yet been carefully analyzed, the
commissioner explained.
When it was first proposed
under another sheriff, the sub-
station was to be a full dispatch
center, controlling the county's
communications department, ac-
cording to Nick Smith, who rep-
resented the sheriff's office during
the meeting. That plan proved too


What that means is that the
drinking water will no longer be
taken from Lake Okeechobee, a
body of water that is susceptible
to algae blooms and other condi-

past.
So perhaps before Christmas
the rest of the city will choose to
follow the McCarthys' lead.

costly considering the full reloca-
tion of the equipment.
Today, the project has been
scaled back to a 4,000 square
foot building that can house the
county's criminal investigations
department.
"We are greatly in need of
space now," Mr. Smith told com-
missioners.
With the new facility, other


sheriff's office departments can
alleviate themselves of the conges-
tion found in current buildings.
"They're greatly in need of el-
bow room," Mr. Smith added.
Commissioners directed 'staff
to present a conceptual plan at a
future meeting.

Boys team planning
big things
Willie Lee, the Tigers boys
head coach, attributes last sea-
son's 9-13 record to a rash of inju-
ries and a sore lack of leadership
from the outgoing seniors, putting
a serious damper on an otherwise
very talented team.
Coach Lee said that the lead-
ership issues stemmed from hav-
ing to suspend last year's seniors
Omar Smith and Sim Putman
from the team for disciplinary rea-
sons. As a result, the head coach
had to turn to the younger players
who he felt didn't have much ex-
perience at the time.
"Our younger players last year
had to grow into leaders quickly,
even though they didn't have much
experience," Coach Lee said,
frankly. "Our seniors who were
supposed to lead the team were a
big distraction to the team."
The head coach said that in
addition to the leadership issues,
chronic injuries to Reggie Gray,
Jasper Hunter and Johnny Jones
kept each from competing much
of the season. Coach Lee also said
that Jamal Hubert wasn't able to
play because of his grades.
"After Sim and Omar were
removed from the team, we had
only nine players on our varsity
team last year," Coach Lee said.
"But the experience the younger
players gained last year will pay
off big time this season."
This season's team, made up
of mostly sophomores and ju-
niors, has bonded together pretty
well, according to Coach Lee.
"Our bonding comes from the
team playing together last year
and working out in the preseason
conditioning program since Au-
gust," the head coach said.
During the conditioning pro-
gram, the players were trained to
move without the basketball, learn
how be effective in the transition
defense and practice all kinds of
shots like lay-ups, three-pointers
and jump shots. The team also
did a lot of running and shooting
drills, including running down the
court and shooting the ball.
The basketball team also par-
ticipated in a six-week summer
camp, held from June to early
July.
"We've been working since
June to get our players ready for
the season," Coach Lee said.
Last season, Coach Lee said
that the defense was intact but
the offense was inefficient due to
inexperience. The head coach be-
lieves that the defense will be the
staple of success this year as its of-
fense should improve as well.
"The bread and butter of our
team will be defense," Coach Lee
said. 'We lost a lot of close games
last year by missing jump shots
and free throws."

Tiger Cheerleaders get ready for the next round of cheers. Tailback Colin Ricketts sweeps the right side for 10 yards.


Brahmans outclass Tigers, 48-20

By Jeff Barwick


The Tigers' visit to Okeechobee
to wind up regular season play
found them running into a twin-
bladed buzz saw in Brahmans
tailback Lonnie Pryor and quar-
terback Garrett Madrigal. On the
night, Pryor rushed for 248 yards
and Madrigal completed 10 of
13 passes for a whopping 256
yards. Both teams
are headed to _ .
the playoffs ...7"-.
as runners-up
in their dis- -' '
tricts with the '...*. - -
Tigers hosting
the Bishop Verot Vikings
Friday night at Cane Field. The
Brahmans travel to West Palm
Beach to face Dwyer.
Okeechobee scored late in
the opening period when Pryor
shook loose and raced 87 yards.
The Brahmans got on the board
again early in the second period
when Madrigal hit wide receiver
LeShawn Henderson in the flats
and he dodged Tiger defenders
and scored on a 56 yard play. The
Tigers finally got going late in the
first half when Okeechobee went
for a fourth and short near mid-
field. Pryor was hit in the back-
field and linebacker Alex Rubio
stripped the ball and trotted 50
yards for the score. Going to the
lockers at half and trailing 14-7,
the Tigers were not out of the
game.
But, Okeechobee's third quar-
ter performance was a display of
powerhouse football with a bal-
anced running and passing game
and a tough defense. The period


Quarterback Isandro Marquez scampers for a nice gain that was nullified by a penalty.


saw Madrigal connect on scoring
passes of 69 yards to Henderson
.and 26 yards to flanker Nate Pol-
lard. Sandwiched in between
for scores were a 57-yard run by
Pryor and a 33-yard interception
return by Henderson.
The Tigers, although out
manned and out gunned, didn't
quit. They kept finding spurts of of-
fense, mostly behind the running
of senior tailback Colin Ricketts
who kept getting good chunks of
yardage behind sporadic block-
ing. His long run of the night was
for 56 yards that set up a 9-yard
touchdown run by Darris Hughes
as the clock wound down.
Clewiston and Okeechobee


exchanged scores in the final pe-
riod with the Tigers scoring on
a 4-yard sweep by Ricketts and
Pryor scoring on a 14 yard run.
The Brahmans. finished 7-3
and that matched their best re-
cord going back to 1991. The
Tigers ended regular season 4-6
as they swept their district rivals
but could not manage a win in
tougher non-district play.
The Tigers entered the contest
banged up and worn out. Their
key offensive starters have all
been playing defense throughout
the season. Ricketts was the work-
horse on the night with 154 yards
on 13 carries. He also anchored
the Tiger defense with 13 solo


tackles and a couple of assists.
Defensive end Willie Armstrong
also made a solid contribution, as
did linebacker Alex Rubio.
The Tigers will have their work
cut out in the first round of district
playoffs. The Vikings have a win-
ning season and have a potent
throwing game, which is one of
the Tigers weak spots. Offensive-
ly, the Tigers have been unable
to get any sort of passing attack
going to complement their solid
running attack; Dropped passes
and errant throws have been the
downfall and they need to start
clicking in this department if they
have any chance of going very far
in the playoffs.

There are two classes of people [newszap.com
CC/flil/ I ns/itak.s tIndivi t1/<.t C


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Today I would like to talk to
you about two classes of people.
First: Those who are not grate-
ful to God.
The atheist does not thank
God. A man does not give thanks
to the God in whom he does not
believe. It has been said, "There
are no grateful atheists."
The skeptic or agnostic does
not thank God. This is a person
who does not deny that God ex-
ists, but is skeptical about His
existence. That person who is un-
sure in his own heart about the
existence of God would not be
expected to thank God.
The forgetful person will not
thank God. Thanking God de-
mands remembering. Parents
are often heard to tell their chil-
dren, "Remember to say thanks."
When one forgets God's bless-


ings, then he cannot be grateful
for those blessings.
The one who feels self-suffi-
cient will not be grateful to God.
One man asked why he should
thank God for the food on his ta-
ble, when he worked hard to put
it there. Unfortunately, he failed
to recognize his dependence
upon God.
The greedy person will not be
grateful to God for his blessings.
He is too consumed with what he
wants to be grateful for what he
has. Paul warns of this danger in I
Timothy 6:9-10.
The envious person will not
be grateful. This individual is too
busy coveting what another has
to be thankful. Envy is called "the
rottenness of the bones" (Prov-
erbs 14:30).
Second: Those who will be
thankful to God.
Grateful people have a strong
belief in God. The Patriarchs Abra-


ham, Isaac, and Jacob were men
of great faith and full of thanks-
giving. A strong faith in God today
causes Christians to thank God.
Grateful people feel depen-
dent upon God. It is easy to be
thankful when we remember
just how totally dependent upon
God we are. Man has properly no
room for pride or self-sufficiency
since every blessing, physical or
spiritual comes from God (James
1:17).
Grateful people remember
what God has done for them.
Only one of the ten lepers re-
membered his healing and re-
turned to say thanks. To the Phi-
lippians Paul wrote, "I thank my
God upon every remembrance of
you" (Philippians 1:3). Without
remembering there is no thanks-
giving.
Grateful people have hearts
filled with love. Just as pride,
greed and envy produce ingrati-


tude, so love produces thanksgiv-
ing. The more love we possess,
the more abundant our gratitude
will be.
Grateful people take time to
say thanks. An expression of grat-
itude may not consume much
time, but it demands some. These
who thank God take time to give
thanks.
Grateful people find a blessing
in every event of life for which to
be thankful. After Matthew Henry
was robbed he wrote the follow-
ing words in his diary: "Let me be
thankful.first because I was never
robbed before; second, because,
although they took my purse,
they did not take my life: third,
because although they took my
all, it was not much; and fourth,
because it was I who was robbed,
not I who robbed."
Which are you - grateful or un-
grateful?


Football's twelfth man on the team


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Here's a quick sports quiz for
you: "How many men play on
each side in a
football game?" .. 'L
If you came up ,."
with eleven,
you are right if
it's the visiting
team. But if it's
the home team
with the support : .
of fans, there are' John
twelve players Hicks
on the team.
You won't find the twelfth
man anywhere on the field. The
twelfth man is all those noisy fans
cheering for the home team, try-
ing to demoralize the opponents,
and to keep them from hearing
the quarterbacks' count.
In sports, these fans are literally
known as the twelfth man. They
are a big reason why teams like
to play at home. The twelfth man
is a big part of the home field ad-
vantage. These supporters never
go on the field, but their influence
is felt by every player there.


In the seventeenth chapter of
the book of Exodus, you will find
the account of two groups com-
ing together on a different field of
battle. Moses sends Joshua out
to fight the Amalekites who am-
bushed them. Moses tells them,
"'I Will stand on top of the hill with
the staff of God in my hands." As
long-as Moses held up his hands,
the Israelites had the advantage,
but whenever his hands lowered,
the Amalekites started winning.
When Moses' arms grew tired,
two friends, Aaron and Hur, held
his hands up--one on one side,
one on the other--so that Moses'
hands remained steady till sunset,
and the Israelites won.
Moses built an altar and called
it, "The Lord is my banner", for
hands were lifted up to the throne
of God.
Hands were lifted up to the
throne of God. That's what Moses
was doing on the hill. He was fer-
vently praying for God's warriors
and probably against the enemies
of God's soldiers. Moses, was in-
terceding on the hill; bringing
the need and the battle into the


throne room of God Almighty.
Moses was like that twelfth
man in football. He never set foot
on the battlefield, but what he
was doing was felt by every per-
son in the battle.
For me, this is one of the most
revealing passages in the Bible as
to actually praying for someone
and praying against what the en-
emy is trying to do in their lives.
Literally, when we are faithfully
interceding for someone, they
win; when we stop praying, they
stop winning.
Sometimes people say, "Well,
I guess I can pray." as if praying
was a last resort. The reality is
that there is no more powerful or
decisive position we can play on
God's team than that of being a
prayer warrior. And that position
can be played close by, far away,
from a hospital bed, or from a
bed at home.
Time and time again I have felt
the flooding power and presence
of God in situations when I was
in need, strengthening me in my
weakness, healing me in my af-
flictions, lifting me up in my fall-


ing down.
That's the power that prayer
can give. People who promised
to pray for me were prompted by
the Holy Spirit to do so and they
made a difference in my situa-
tion.
As you support God's home
team from the stands of prayer,
get excited about the decisive
position you're playing. The vic-
tories are ultimately not just won
by the warriors on the field but by
that prayer warrior on the hill.

Part of a body or an isolated outpost: Church meetings


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Schedules seem punctuated
by meetings; many of them being
out-of-town when we live away


from major pop-
ulation centers.
More often than
not, they can be
interruptions but
at the same time
there are real
reasons for shar-
ing in them.
Recently, I
spent four hours
in travel for a


L-
Samuel S.
Thomas


meeting that lasted two hours;
and part of that time was "rehash-
ing" a convention recently attend-


ed in Miami. That meeting only
involved three hours of travel on
the road. One day, not too long
ago, six hours were spent going
to and from a community on the
Treasure Coast for a two-hour
presence and small ceremony.
I noticed that many of those
from the coast seem to fail to
show up when we host regional
meetings or special events. Or-
dinarily, there are about twice as
many in attendance when I travel
to meetings versus when others
have to come here. A question
that was put to me quite simply
"Why, then, do you do it?" While
attending meetings in larger cen-
ters, I reconcile myself to spend-
ing a day for a meeting while
others may only have to spend a
half-day; their trips to and from


home are shorter and they're al-
ways closer to one another. I have
learned to "piggyback" other ac-
tivities on my trips.
The other day, after a church
meeting was completed, we went
Christmas shopping to buy things
that will have to be mailed early.
'The real reason, though, has to
do with something Saint Paul
wrote about. It has to do with be-
ing part of a body. The Church I
serve is not an isolated outpost;
it is part of a larger body. Paul
told the Corinthians "The body is
a unit; and though all of its parts
are many, they form one body (1
Corinthians 12:12)."
I continue to be part of that
body even when it is tempting
to stay at home or when I think
a distant meeting will be a waste


of time. It is being part of a family
and having my share in the direc-
tion; being part of a fellowship
and taking my place among oth-
ers with whom we share a special
place together.
Over the years, I've visited
many people who have lived
alone. They do not have the
same accountability as persons
who live with a partner and who
are more likely to let things (and
themselves, sometimes) go. They
are more likely to have "unusual"
ideas when there is nobody to
include in their thinking, more
likely to get lax on some' of the
things needed when we live to-
gether. John Donne picked up on
Saint Paul's idea about the impor-
tance ,of being a body when he
wrote "No man is an island" 1600


years after Paul wrote it. It is in
our interactions with others that
we have our own identity shaped
and affirmed and where we have
a special gift to offer others while
receiving it ourselves. I find in my
trips to visit other churches and
clergy that I have something to
offer about life in my own com-
munity and also have something
to learn from them, too.
Churches can be like individu-
als; existing alone and without
contact with others can produce
strains and lead to being a bit too
self-centered at times.
The Lord sent His disciples
to the far corners of the Earth,
but they could go because they
were part of a special body and
special family. Paul concludes
his thoughts about the body by


saying "Now you are the body of
Christ and each of you is a part of
it ( 1 Corinthians 12 v. 27)." That
makes all of the traveling ahd all
of the hours on the road Worth-
while. It's too easy to become iso-
lated'or detached; too easy to get
ignored or lost. Each time I am
away, there is something to bring
home, something to report, and
something to tell.
Each time I am reminded
about my place, our church's
place in the larger body and we
are reaffirmed by it all. In reality,
it is the reaffirmation of our place,
my place in the Body of Our Lord
here on Earth; that wider fellow-
ship that makes it up. Being part
of that body-what could be more
important?

Church to host
Thanksgiving feast
Come and join others in a
free Thanksgiving Day dinner on
Thursday, Nov. 22, beginning at
11:30 a.m. at First United Meth-
odist Church of Clewiston. In-
vite friends and neighbors, we
will even send you home with
leftovers! Come and enjoy fun,
food, and fellowship! There is
no charge, but we will have a
basket available for donations to
the community food bank. Call
(863) 983-5269 for more informa-
tion. Volunteers to help cook and
serve are welcome!


When we think about influenc-
ing our children rightly, which is
more helpful? Giving them rules,
or setting an example? It is true
that we need not choose com-
pletely between one or the other,
but which one is more compel-
ling?
Parents may be fooled into
thinking "do this, don't do that"
will suffice. Lay down the law,
and children will follow. But let
us not forget our children are sin-
ful by nature, as we are. They are
thinking to themselves when we
give such guidance, "Is that really
the way it is?"
Parents will find that they will
have greater influence through
their own personal example. It
is here that we will find there is


that informs long before ruies can
establish authority.
So what should our example
toward our children be? Affec-
tionate with our kids. Consistent.
They must not witness in us un-
kindness, unfriendliness, or over-
bearing qualities, or their conduct
will be affected negatively. Chil-
dren must see in us parents who
redeem the time, who work hard,
choose their friends carefully,
avoid sinful pleasures, and guard
their tongues.
These things are also critical to
think about when we think about
the church. Many well-meaning
parents will drop off their kids for
church because their kids may
want to go, but the parent would
really want rest, free time, or time


cnhildren are constantly sluuy-
ing the example of their parents,
should, we not abandon such
thinking altogether? Why preach
our children (through our actions)
two contradictory sermons? Do
we neglect regular worship and


olrofmed to l he worlIUf iso, ten Ilet I
us not be surprised to raise kids
of the same persuasion, lest we
change our ways. If we are care-
less toward the things of God, let
us not blame our churches or pas-
tors if our kids turn out the same


powerful, inUeeU . an i nal UU,
he gives strength and grace to all
who seek Him in Christ Jesus.
May the words of an old say-
ing both warn and encourage the
parents of this age, "Be what you
wish your child to be."

Sub Prime Lending Struggles Create



HUGE Savings for Car Buyers


As Little as a $99/month! *

Moore Haven, FL - National news agencies have been reporting for weeks about the latest stock market troubles and its ties to the
failing sub prime lending market. This has created a huge supply of vehicles due to recent reposse ssions and the many trade-ins gen-
erated due to downsizing car payments.


In many cases, this inventory is acquired at thousands below book \alue. Banks and lenders are highly motivated to liquidate this inven-
tory and Executive Cars, Inc. is passing this savings on to the general public at their Moore Haven Tent Sale.


"The situation in the sub prime banking sector is serious. Home and car loans are defaulting at an alarhning rate, andi! although
this is unfortunate, it has created a MASSIVE savings opportunity for all prospective car buyers"


Every vehicle in inventory will be clearly marked with its drastically lowered price or payment. Bank representatives will be avail-
able to assist all buyers during this very special event. Even those buyers whose credit may have been damaged in the past will have
an opportunity to take advantage of this incredible market condition. A stable job and residence is all that is required to begin pro-
cess of any transaction.


"I have never seen anything like this. With rising gas prices and a sluggish economy, a great many vehicles have been traded to
reduce payments and unfortunately others have simply been returned to the lender" - David Ray - Event Manager


Sale begins Tuesday, November 13th and ends Sunday, November 18th. Payments as low as $99/month* will be made available dur-
ing this limited event.


"We have contacted all our lenders and requested they extend their operating hours to assist in this incredible event. Millions of
dollars have been made available for immediate loan processing."


The Moore Haven Tent Sale will be fully staffed during the event hours as attendance is expected to be in record breaking numbers.
As with most special sales, the selection will diminish throughout the event so come early to take full advantage of the entire inven-
tory available.


The Moore Haven Tent Sale is located at 499 US Highway 27, near Beck's Food Store, in Moore Haven, Florida. Please call for an advance ap-
pointment at 888-673-7259.

This event is sponsored by Executive Cars, Inc., Leesburg, FL and/or First Financial, Inc.
*2004 Dodge Stratus, stk# PT1122, Sale price $9500, $3500 down or trade equity, $99/mo, with approved credit, 72 months term, plus tax, title, and license fees. See dealer for details.
