Jeb Carliss plans
first wing suit jump.
without a parachute
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY -- Hendry
County received a little national
attention earlier this week as the
Today Show filmed on location a
man's practice wing suit jump.
Cameras rolled and Today
Show correspondents in New
York City expressed nervousness
over the prospect of Jeb Carliss


jumping without the aid of a
parachute just outside of Clew-
iston, at the skydiving business
operated by Rick and Lisa Horn-
sby.
Looking frightfully similar to a
6-foot flying squirrel as he glided
in the air, Mr. Carliss smiled when
he landed.
He was one jump closer to
realizing his goal.
Tuesday morning's attempt
was only a practice run, to be
sure: The jumper opened his
parachute before touching down
and tried as best as he could af-
terward to explain why someone


would be willing to take the risk
of jumping without one.
After he had taken off his
wing suit, Mr. Carliss explained
that the idea to jump without a
parachute came to him rather
naturally.
During previous wing suit
jumps, he would wonder what
would keep him from injuring
himself if the rate of fall slowed
to somewhere around 36 miles
per hour.
Why not, he thought? Per-
haps, because the horizontal
speed still hovers well over 100
miles per hour, of course.


Man to attempt skydive without parachute

A smooth landing
Jeb Carliss gathers his suit moments after landing on Tuesday. He performed a wing
suit jump at the local skydive business, operated by the Hornsbys..


Today Show crew review video shot of the
wing suit jump. They transmitted live from
the airport to a nationwide audience on
Tuesday morning.


There were plenty of smiling faces follow-
ing the wing suit jump on Tuesday: Luigi
Cani, Rick Hornsby, Lisa Hornsby and Jeb
Carliss.


Still, there was something
about the act of gliding grace-
fully down to the earth that ap-
pealed to him, and Mr. Carliss
didn't abandon the idea.
The work began in earnest
when a sponsor offered him $1
million for the attempt.
Since then the jumping pio-
neer has been hard at work,
completing many practice jumps
throughout the past few years
and working on finding better
wing suits.
The hard work has paid off
and, according to him, the team
is reaching a point where the


wing suit jumps can actually be
considered fairly safe.
It's too soon to start a wing.
suit jumping business, though.
Many months of practice are re-
quired, and even then, there is
no measure of safety.
Mr. Carliss maintains that he
is no Evil Knievel, and will only
jump when he is sure that the
process has been perfected.
"I've broken bones before,
it's not fun," he said.
. There will always be risks with
wing suit jumping; and even Jeff

Harlem residents


say, 'Don't call it


a gang. problem'


Residents chime in
regarding Harlem's
crime activity

By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
HARLEM "Give a large
lizard fire and it becomes a
dragon."
This is the expression shared
by many constituents in the
Harlem community.
Residents here say that ran-
dom acts of crime can be seen,
just as anywhere else, but feel
that the statements of some of


their neighbors worried about
the emergence of gang activity
is wrong.
At the forefront of this decla-
ration is Daniel Paige, an attor-
ney bred within the very walls
of this urban neighborhood.
"When you call it a gang"
you are breeding a gang," said
Mr. Paige, also a youth pastor at
Greater Friendship Missionary
Baptist Church, who said that
gang activity is not seen in any
noticeable measure.
Paige admits to fights erupt-
ing last year among the groups
of young men yet no sheetings

Roth assumes coaching role


New Clewiston Tigers
head coach will also
be named its athletic
director
By Naji Tobias
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON After care-
ful consideration, Joseph
Roth was selected as the high
school's new varsity football
head coach and athletic direc-
tor for the Clewiston Tigers.
Roth's dual roles became
official on Feb. 11 after an in-
terview with Dr. Robert Egley,
the high school's principal.
The new football head


coach/athletic director will
be replacing Larry Antonacci
in these two positions, which
Mr. Antonacci had held from
2006 until Jan. 15, the day of
his resignation.
Roth was named the in-
terim head coach and athletic
director on Jan. 16, just one
day after Mr. Antonacci's res-
ignation.
Roth has some big shoes to
fill, as he will be overseeing a
team that finished with a 5-7
overall record last season, but
won the District 7-2A title with
a 4-0 record and made it to
the second round of the Class
2A playoffs.


Just two seasons ago, Mr.
Antonacci led the Tigers to
an impressive 13-1 overall
record, his first season as the
head coach. The Tigers were
one game away from its first
state championship since
1982, but lost in a 27-24 over-
time heartbreaker to Jackson-
ville-Bolles.
An assistant coach for the
Clewiston Tigers for .11 years,
Roth took a two-year break
from coaching to becohne an
assistant principal for the high
school.
Now, with eight years

Glades General to host quit smoking clinics


BELLE GLADE -- February is
American Heart Month. Accord-
ing to the American Heart As-
sociation, cigarette smoking is
a major cause of coronary heart
disease, which leads to heart
attacks. As the most important
preventable cause of prema-
.ture death in the United States,
Glades General Hospital (GGH)
is helping the community to quit
smoking and quit chew/spit to-
bacco with the launch of a new
program free to all residents.
The "Quit Smoking Now"
program kicked off in early Feb-
ruary. Classes meet every Thurs-
day evening from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
in the GGH human resources
training conference room.
Each session lasts six weeks.
Participants receive a book the
first day with tips and tools to
identify why they smoke in the
first place. The class reviews
the week's goals and the past
week's progress. Students dis-
cuss where they may need sup-


port and identify ways to meet
their goals. The program also
incorporates the Florida Depart-
ment of Health Quit Line which
offers one on one counseling
through their Quit-for-Life Line.
In addition, participants may
qualify for nicotine replacement
therapy at no cost depending on
a medical intake and income
assessment. The toll free num-
ber for the Quit Line is 1-(877)
822-6669. The class is taught by
Erin Etheridge, a Glades General
Hospital nurse and the Employ-
ee Health Coordinator who has
a background in education. Ac-
cording to Ms. Etheridge, "The
program has the potential to
make a momentous impact on
our community as smoking re-
lated diseases flood our health
care system and disable our citi-
zens. A smoke-free community
will live longer, healthier, and
more productive lives."
GGH hasrecognized the need
for a stop smoking program in


the region. "We understand the
healthcare challenges our com-
munity faces and we have de-
veloped educational programs
that help people change habits
and behaviors to live healthier
lives," said David Zechman,
Glades General Hospital CEO.
"In our new hospital, we'll be
able to reach more people and
make an even greater impact
with significantly more space
for education programs." Plans
for the new $73 million regional
hospital under construction in
the Glades include classroom
and conference facilities to in-
-crease prevention and wellness
education offerings in the re-
gion. The Health Care District of
Palm Beach County has commit-
ted $50 million toward building
the facility, which will replace
Glades General Hospital. Glades
Healthcare Foundation (www.
gladeshealthcare.org) is lead-
ing the fund raising campaign to


complete the project.
The GGH "Quit Smoking
Now" program is sponsored by
Everglades Area Health Educa-
tion Centers (EAHEC), an agency
who has a mission to ,enhance
access to quality health care,
particularly primary and pre-
ventive care, by improving the
supply and distribution of health
care professionals through com-
munity/academic educational
partnerships. The next GGH
"Quit Smoking Now" session
begins March 13. Registrations
are now being accepted. To reg-
ister, call Erin Ethridge at (561)
996-6571 ext 507. For more in-
formation about "Quit Smoking
Now", Florida Quit-For-Life Line

programs please contact Mari-
lyn Leeds, Director of Tobacco

es for Everglades AHEC at (561)

When I am gone, release me; let me go,
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears;
be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love-you can only guess
how much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown;
But now, it is time I traveled on alone.
So, grieve a while for me, i grieve you must,
then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories with your heat.

I won't be far away for life goes on;
so if you need me, call, and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me I'll be neat;
and if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
all of my love around you soft and dear;
and then, when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and wave,
"WELCOME HOME"

MindYour ,



Business a
By:
Sean Moore


Getting your name out there

- it's easier than you think


Here is an interesting situa-
tion for you to consider. You are
a small business owner in a small
town with limited advertising re-
sources at your disposal due to
cost or.because of the limited me-
dia outlets available to you. How
in the world can you get the word
out about your business?
First and foremost, you try to
use what is available to you as
best you can in terms of the me-
dia market. If you are a business
and you are not allowing at least
a little money for your advertis-
ing budget you are already set-
ting yourself up for a fall. It's like
signing up for one of those online
dating websites and not filling
out the profile. You are never go-
ing to get a date! You have to let
people know you are around, so
you have to advertise. The trick is
finding the most effective media
avenue for the budget you set for
yourself that allows you to maxi-
mize that budget. We can help
'you withthat if you are thinking
you want to do some advertising
please contact me and we can
discuss some options.
What do you do if you are ad-
vertising and it's not working?
The simple answer here is to
make your business more visible.
I do not mean put up a bigger
sign or paint yourself in a neon
colors and stand by the road, al-
though for my enjoyment I would
.. T ,:ou w6uldw!Whatwev mean


by that is simply find other ways
to make sure your name is seen.
Berner Oil has the name "Berner
Oil" on the side of every truck that
delivers gas for them right? Isn't
that advertising? Reel Dreams'
Guide Service has stuff on the
windows of every single vehicle
they have, including a web site
address.
If being more visible is still not
as profitable as you would like,"
get more involved! Try to sponsor
a little league team, see if you can
volunteer to be on committee's in
your community, get an informa-
tion booth at a festival. The more.
places you go and wear a com-
pany shirt, hand out a flyer, the
higher profile you and your busi-
ness are going to create. You do
not have to spend a lot of money
to advertise your business but
you do have to be creative, vis-
ible, and involved. We will pick
up here next week!

District employees,
family, and friends
participated in
Race For the Cure@

WEST PALM BEACH -- Just
over five years ago, Kathie Mor-
ris, a finance manager at the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District, was diagnosed
with breast cancer. To show
support for Mrs. Morris, fellow
co-worker and friend Claudia
Kugler organized the first cancer
support group among District
employees, then dubbed "Ka-
thie's Friends," to participate in
the 2003 Komen South Florida
Race For the Cure@. Ironically,
Mrs. Kugler herself was diag-
nosed with breast cancer less
than two months later. The
medical battles Mrs. Morris and
Mrs. Kugler fought to heal them-
selves inspired other District
employees, family, friends and
survivors to join the fight against
breast cancer. The 55 District
employees who participated in
the 2003 walk raised more than
$1,100. For the 2008 Komen
South Florida Race for the Cure,
the SFWMD team numbered
440 members, more than any
other state or local government


I- ,

agency, and a series of fundrais-
ers organized by District staff
helped raise a total of $28,000
for the Susan G. Komen Breast
Cancer Foundation.
The Komen Foundation to-
day formally recognized the
SFWMD for having the largest
governmental team entry at the
2008 Komen South Florida Race
For the Cure. It is the fifth con-
secutive year the agency has re-
ceived this award.
"I am so proud of our em-
ployees," said Carol Ann We-
hie, Executive Director of the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District. "Each year, our
staff approaches this fundrais-
ing effort with greater resolve
than in the previous year, and
the consistent, amazing results
demonstrate what truly selfless
people we have working for this
agency."
"From the governing board
and senior management to the
employees in field stations and
service centers throughout our
16-county region, everyone has
been extremely supportive, for
which I am exceedingly grate-
ful," added Mrs. Morris. "Each
year I participate in the District's
fundraising events and the race,
hoping in some small way to
'pay it forward' to others who


may need help during their own
experience with breast cancer.
Once you are diagnosed with
breast cancer, you find yourself
a member of a club you would
give anything NOT to be a mem-
ber of. You also find new friends
and a new way of looking at
life."
Since 2003, SFWMD employ-
ees have raised nearly $85,000
to benefit the Susan G. Komen
Breast Cancer Foundation.
The 17th Annual Komen
South Florida Race for the Cure
was held Jan. 19, along the Intra-
coastal Waterway in downtown
West Palm Beach. It attracted
nearly 20,000 participants and
raised more than $1 million for
the foundation. Of the money
raised annually at the event, up
to 75 percent stays in the area
to fund valuable education,
screening and treatment. The re-
maining 25 percent of the funds
raised fund cutting-edge breast
cancer research nationwide.
The 5K run was first established
in 1982 by Nancy G. Brinker af-
ter her sister, Susan G. Komen,
died of breast cancer at the age
of 36.

Know the warning signs of a stroke


Do you know the warning
signs of a stroke?
If someone suffers a stroke,
their chance of recovery often
depends on getting help quick-
ly.
The American Stroke Associ-
ation says these are the warning
signs of stroke:
*Sudden numbness or weak-
ness of the face, arm or leg,
especially on one side of the
body;
Sudden confusion, trouble
speaking or understanding;
Sudden trouble seeing in
one or both eyes;
Sudden trouble walking,
dizziness, loss of balance or co-
ordination; and,
Sudden, severe headache
with no known cause.
If you or someone with you
has one or more of these signs,
don't delay! Immediately call
9-1-1 or the emergency medi-
cal services (EMS) number so
an ambulance (ideally with ad-
vanced life support) can be sent
for you.
Also, check the time so you'll
know when the first symptoms
appeared. It's very important to
take immediate action. If given
within three hours of the start of
symptoms, a clot-busting drug
can reduce long-term disability
for the most common type of
stroke.
Some people may have sev-
eral "small" strokes before the
condition is ever diagnosed.
The sooner the problem is diag-
nosed and treated, the greater
the chances for a recovery.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control (CDC) a stroke
occurs either when the blood
supply to part of the brain is
blocked or when a blood ves-
sel in the brain bursts, causing
damage to a part of the brain. A
stroke is also sometimes called
a brain attack.
Stroke is the third leading
cause of death in the United
States, states the CDC. Among
survivors, stroke can cause
significant disability including
paralysis as well as speech and
emotional problems. New treat-
ments are available that can
reduce the damage caused by
a stroke for some victims. But
these treatments need to be
given soon after the symptoms
start.
The CDC offers the follow-
ing tips for reducing your risk of
stroke:


A
Healthier
Life \,

with Katrina Elsken
Prevent and control high
blood pressure. High blood
pressure is easily checked. It
can be controlled with lifestyle
changes and with medicines
when needed. You can work
with your doctor to treat high
blood pressure and bring it
down. Lifestyle actions such as
healthy diet, regular physical ac-
tivity, not smoking, and healthy
weight will also help you to
keep normal blood pressure lev-
els. All adults should have their
blood pressure checked on a
regular basis.
Prevent and control diabe-
tes. People with diabetes have
a higher risk of stroke, but they
can also work to reduce their
risk. Further, recent studies sug-
gest that all people can take
steps to reduce their risk for dia-
betes. These include weight loss
and regular physical activity.
No tobacco: Smoking can
affect a number of things that
relate to risk of high blood pres-
sure, heart disease, and stroke.
Not smoking is one of the best
things a person can do to low-
er their risk of stroke. Quitting
smoking will also help to lower
a person's risk of stroke. The risk
of stroke decreases a few years
after quitting smoking. Your
doctor can suggest programs to
help you quit smoking.
Treat atrial fibrillation. Atrial
fibrillation is an irregular beating
of the heart. It can cause clots
that can lead to stroke. A doctor
can prescribe medicines to help
reduce the chance of clots.
Prevent and control high
blood cholesterol. High blood
cholesterol is a major risk fac-
tor for heart disease, which can
increase the risk for stroke. Pre-
venting and treating high blood
cholesterol includes eating a diet
low in saturated fat and choles-
terol and higher in fiber, keep-
ing a healthy weight, and getting
regular exercise. A lipoprotein
profile can be done to measure
several kinds of cholesterol as
well as triglycerides (another
kind of fat found in the blood).


All adults should have their cho-
lesterol levels checked once ev-
ery five years, and more often
if it is found to be high. If it is
high, your doctor may prescribe
medicines to help lower it.
Use moderation with alco-
hol. Excessive alcohol use can
increase the risk of high blood
pressure. People who drink
should do so in moderation.
Maintain a healthy weight.
Healthy weight status in adults
is usually assessed by using
weight and height to compute a
number called the "body mass
index" (BMI). BMI is used be-
cause it relates to the amount
of body fat for most people.
An adult who has a BMI of 30
or higher is considered obese.
Overweight is a BMI between
25 and 29.9. Normal weight is
a BMI of 18 to 24.9. Proper diet
and regular physical activity
can help to maintain a healthy
weight.
Exercise regularly. The Sur-
geon General recommends that
adults should engage in moder-
ate level physical activities for at
least 30 minutes on most days of
the week.
Eat a balanced diet. Along
with healthy weight and regu-
lar physical activity, an overall
healthy diet can help to lower
blood pressure and cholesterol
levels. This includes eating lots
of fresh fruits and vegetables,
lowering or cutting out salt or
sodium, and eating less saturat-
ed fat and cholesterol to lower
the risk of high blood pressure
and heart disease which can
lead to stroke.
Know your genetic risk fac-
tors. Stroke can run in families.
Genes play a role in stroke risk
factors such as high blood pres-
sure, heart disease, diabetes,
and vascular conditions. It is
also possible that an increased
risk for stroke within a family is
due to factors such as a com-
mon sedentary lifestyle or poor
eating habits, rather than hered-
itary factors.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise pro-
gram, consult your doctor.
This is especially important
if you are on any prescrip-
tion drugs. Some drugs in-
teract badly with foods that
would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

Revival and your "first love"


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church,
Clewiston
This weekend we are having a
revival at First Christian. We need
revival constantly because as Je-
sus said to the church at Ephesus
in Revelation 2:4, "Nevertheless
I have somewhat against thee,
because thou hast left thy First
Love."
I want to share with you,
"Twelve evidences that we have
lost our 'First Love' For the Lord."
1. When my delight in the Lord
is no longer as great as my delight
in someone else, I have lost my
"first love."
2. When my soul does not
long for times of rich fellowship


in God's Word or in prayer, I have
lost my "first love:
3. When my thoughts during
leisure moments do not reflect
upon the lord, I have lost my "first
love."
4. When I claim to be "only hu-
man" and easily give in to those
things I know displease the Lord,
I have lost my "first love."
5. When I do not willingly and
cheerfully give to God's work or
to the needs of others, I have lost
my "first love."
6. When I cease to treat every
Christian brother as I would the
Lord, I have lost my "first love."
7. When I view the commands
of Christ as restrictions to my hap-
piness rather than expressions


of His love, I have lost my "first
love."
8. When I inwardly strive for
the acclaim of this world rather
than. the approval of the Lord, I
have lost my "first love."
9. When I fail to make Christ
or His Words known because I
fear rejection, I have lost my "first
love."
10. When I refuse to give up an
activity which I know is offending
a weaker brother, I have lost my
"first love."
11. When I become compla-
cent in sinful conditions around
me I have lost my "first love."
12. When I am unable to for-
give another for offending me, I
have lost my "first love."

What cancer cannot do


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Cancer. A dreaded word. Web-
ster's dictionary defines cancer
as anything bad or harmful that
spreads and destroys. We all are
touched by it in one way or an-
other. Either a friend or a loved
one or perhaps even we ourselves
have experienced this dreaded
disease. It might be cancer in the
body, or it might be cancer of the
spirit or soul. The reality is that we
can't escape it. It's all around us.:
The numbers of cases diagnosed
seem to be growing. I have a pain
in my heart as I think back on
Frank, David, Lois, Cathy, Nancy,
Becky, Stephen, Bob, 'and the
countless others who were near
and dear to my heart who suc-
cumbed to the disease. As I wrote
the list, others have come to my
mind, now too many to list in the
space I have.
There are times I look for
answers and sometimes the an-
swers are hard to find. Sometimes
I can't find them at all. Yet, in the
midst of all of this, there are hopes
and promises given to us in God's
word. There are faith statements
by those who lived and died with
cancer that stand out. There are
many incidences in my life where
there were services of celebration
of life over funerals of loss. One


friend responded to his condi-
tion, "I am convinced that there
is a God. I know that no matter
what happens
to me, standing A
with me is a lov-
ing, caring God".
Another shared
with me, "John, "
I'm going to be ..-
with Jesus, take
care of my mom
and dad." These John
add credence to Hicks
"Blessed assur-
ance, Jesus is mine."
Put in the right perspective,
we can come to realize that can-
cer is quite limited in many ways.
Cancer is not all powerful. There
are things that cancer cannot do.
Another friend with cancer once
shared with me such a list. For
instance, cancer cannot separate
us from God's presence. Nothing
can separate us from the love of
God in Christ Jesus. Cancer can-
not overcome love. Cancer might
invade the body, but cancer can-
nQt invade the soul. Cancer can
take away our earthly life, 'but it
cannot steal eternal life from us.
Other things that cancer can-
not do: suppress memories, kill
friendships, or cripple love. Again,
when you look at the bigger pic-
ture, cancer is limited in what it
can destroy.


Do you know someone with
cancer?' Share the good news
- cancer is not the end all. Are
you inflicted with cancer your-
self? Grab hold of the message
that embraces faith and hugs
hope. We have a God who hears
and answers prayers. Ultimately,
when we are in Him, we will go
to be with Him when our time
comes, whenever that might be.
We are surrounded by cancer
and cancer infiltrates our life, but
cancer is not the victor God is.
Because of this we can face what-
ever happens, for we know that
standing with us is a loving, car-
ing, victorious God. Thanks be
to God who gives us the victory
as well with His all-embracing
love and the love of family and
friends.
The Clewiston area cancer
survivor's dinner put.on by the
Relay for Life is Monday, March
3, 6 p.m. at First United Method-
ist Church of Clewiston. Invite any
survivors or family members to
come to this special dinner. The
actual Relay for Life walk this year
is March 7-8, at Hendry County
fairgrounds. I invite you to walk
the circle on Friday night and
look at the names and remember
these special people who have
dealt with or who are dealing
with cancer, and their families
- and remember.


Does God lie to us? Is "Evolution"


now a four-letter word?


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
It's come up again; the ques-
tion of teaching "evolution" in
school to our children. When
someone was trying to support
the idea of a seven-twenty-four-
hour-day theory of creation,
he was asked about explaining
all of the fossils and evidence
found in the earth that pre-dates
such an idea. He answered
"How do you know God didn't
place them in the ground at a
later date?" Such a presump-
tion might be better attributed
to the god "Loki" who mythol-
ogy tells us was a trickster God.
IY heard this answer and won-
Sdered if its proponent believed
God would deceive us, even if
was "for our own good." Such
an act wouldn't be consistent
with a God who loves, creates,
redeems, heals, is good.
I see that one of our neigh-
boring counties will be teach-
ing the "theory" of evolution.
I believe that's good; put all of
the "theories" out there and let
people decide. It's an old and
honorable theory; comprehen-
sive, and reasoned, built on
knowledge from what human-
ity knows worth considering.
It is a better explanation than
some of the other "theories" of
how the world and its inhabit-
ants came into being. Does this
theory somehow affect the idea
that God created the world? Not
at all.
Everyone can always ask
about a first cause, a first mover,
and offer answer that it is some-
thing surely beyond what we
ordinarily know; or the work of
God. Honest science acknowl-
edges where it cannot go; no-
body has come up with a defini-


tive "scientific" answer about
what came before the "big
bang" in the big bang theory, or
what came before that, or what
came before that. I can see a
greater appeal to understanding
creation from an evolutionary
approach than seeing God as
some sort of celestial trickster.
We soon forget the roots of
our faith the dynamism and
evolution of our beliefs in many
areas. I regard faith as dynamic,
not stagnant. I believe God con-
tinues to-reveal things to His
creatures, that His creation is
ongoing. People seem ready to
believe that the earth is not flat
after all, that this planet is not
the center of the.universe, then
act if somehow their beliefs
would all be shattered if Bibli-
cal accounts weren't literally
so. We've "evolved" from our
ancestors ideas, continue to do
so.
This will be ongoing, and faith
will not suffer after all. None of
the major discoveries that have
been made have destroyed faith,
nor affected the religion of those
who have incorporated them.
Rather, they gave a new under-
standing, and with it, a greater
understanding of God at work,
His universe, a greater compre-
hension of His nature, and more
profound respect of'just how
awesome He is.
Paul, when talking about
manifestations of faith, admon-
ishes "Brethren, do not be chil-
dren in your thinking; be babes
in evil, but in thinking be mature
(1 Corinthians 14:20)."
The Christian religion
"evolved" out of the Old Testa-
ment religion, Paul "evolved"
from his background as a Phari-
see into the great evangelist that
he was, the beliefs of the faithful
have "evolved" in our treatment
of others (polygamy, human ser-


vitude, not taking revenge, the
value of life, just to name a few
examples). Instead of weaken-
ing faith, we better understand
what a great God it is that we
worship and follow.
Better that we spend our time
on another kind of "evolution"
than debating theories; that we
find improved ways of getting
along with our -neighbors, that
we find better ways of respect-
ing the world entrusted to us,
that we learn about building a
healthy environment for those
who follow us and the list goes
on.
Every now and then, some-
one asks "What would Jesus
drive?" If we look to the Biblical
account, we find him on a don-
key on Palm Sunday (cf. Mark
11:7). This account lets people
say "See, it's written in the Good
Book let's sell our SUVs and re-
stock the barn." I'm not betting
on that happening soon. We se-
lect where we choose to evolve
and where we get stuck in old
ideas. It does us good to ask ev-
ery now and then just why-we
hold fast to some things and are
ready to change others. It might
be good to ask "Would my
world come to an end if some
of my pet beliefs weren't like I
thought?"
A saying I heard attributed to
the Quakers holds that "At some
level of depth, all truth is one."
I believe that our explanations
that are the most comprehen-
sive, most inclusive, most ex-
planatory, that help understand
other ideas and explanations
along the way are our best ap-
proximation to truth. The Bible
that tells us "Ye shall know the
truth, and the truth shall set
you free" (John 8:32) seems to
agree.

Jump

Nebelkopf, who designs the suits
for a living, doesn't encourage it.
"I think it's possible," Mr. Ne-
belkopf said about the idea. "I try
to sway people against it."
Mr. Nebelkopf works closely
with a clothing company to de-
sign new versions of the wing
suits, and has helped to advance
the technological improvements
of the nylon-based suit. Even so,

or homicides were reported. He
does not, however, justify the vio-
lence and firmly believes that any
nuisance should be disciplined
accordingly, no matter what part
of town he or she is from.
"Call it what it is, just a group
of guys hanging out," he said.
"What we need to do give
these kids something to do, some
activities, besides Nintendo, to
show them some attention,"
Paige continues. "Folks need to
make efforts to help the kids cre-
ate an inspirational atmosphere."
Lakeisha Moore, 27, of Har-
lem also admits to some random
fighting.
"It mostly started last sum-
mer and hasn't happened much
since," said Ms. Moore, a resident


he's not entirely sure that a per-
son should attempt the jump.
"If you can get out of your car
at 120 miles per hour on your
chest, and then fall off from a
two-story building and survive,"
you might survive an un-assisted
wing suit jump, he said.
There is no definite date set for
the jump, and plans hinge on the
jumper securing the financing to
build a unique landing structure
to accommodate the jump.
All of the planning doesn't
soothe the fears of Mr. Carliss'
parents, who offered their son $1


of Harlem. "It's just a bunch of
high school and middle school
students fighting one another."
She concedes there has not
been a report of weapons use
or any extreme violence outside
of fighting, though these reports
were not confirmed by law en-
forcement. Moore, who has a
young daughter, says she does
not worry about her child's safety
as her daughter plays outdoors.
"It's just not that serious," she.
says.
Many constituents when asked
about the situation were not ap-
prehensive or intimidated at all.
"I don't know or hear much
about it," admits Nakesha Black-
mon, 27, of the Palm Beach
County Sheriffs Office, who was
also raised in Harlem. "I hear
about a fight every now and then
but I know it's just a bunch of
kids," she says. "And it's not only


million not to jump. They worry
that despite all his work some-
thing might go wrong.
But Mr. Carliss remains stead-
fast.
"My life is about experiences,"
the prospective wing suit jumper
said. "You have to take amazing
risks to have amazing experi-
ences."

happening in Harlem."
Some residents say it all sounds
worse than what it is and they are
not living in fear.
"I still allow my son to en-
gage in outside activities within
the normal hours of after-school
play," Ms. Blackmon says. "But
just like under more than normal
circumstances, he is inside before
dark."
These residents all concur that
discipline is absent in the younger
people.
Paige closes his remarks by
stating that more role models are
needed to influence the lives of
children. They need another fo-
cus, he said.
Maybe then they won't get at-
tention by hurting each other, Mr.
Paige said.

Youth Livestock Cattle


Show judged at County Fair


By Sonja Crawford
The Pee Wee Calf, Beef Breed-
ing and Market Steer Show held
on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at the La-
Belle Rodeo Grounds. The show
consisted of pee-wees, 4-H and
FFA members showing their heif-
ers, calves and steers. The steers
exhibited at the show ranged in
weight from 980 pounds to 1381
pounds. Mr. Jim Selph of Arcadia
was the official judge for the eve-
ning.
Fourteen calf exhibitors be-
gan the evening answering ques-
tions about their project. The Pee
Wee exhibitors consisted of Lilly
Carter, Blake Crawford, Bryson
Crawford, Taylor Martin, Taylor
McGill, Paul Morrison, Madison
Murrah, Lane Murray, Marshall
Platt', Adam Reinbott, Carl Willis,
Kinzie Tindall, Windall Tindall,
and Chancey Wright. The pee-
wee exhibitors were awarded
with medallions.
In the Beef Breeding division,
Tripp Edgar exhibited his Bran-
gus X heifer in the Heifers over
one year and under two years
class. Tripp received the Grand'
Champion award as well as the
Junior Showmanship award cou-
pled with the Junior Fitting and
Grooming award. Trip is a mem-
ber of the Hogs R Us 4-H Club.
The steers were judged on


muscling, correctness of finish,
balance, capacity, size, as well
as carcass desirability. The beef
breeding critters were judged on
size, growth potential, muscle,
balance, structural correctness,
capacity, and sex characteristics.
Showmanship was judged on
the ability to exhibit an animal to
its best advantage, as well as the
overall care and training of the
animal. The exhibitors are judged
on control, presentation 'to the
judge, awareness of the judge, as
well as knowledge of the specie.
Planning, practicing, and neat ap-
pearance will assist the exhibitor
in being successful.
Drew Dyess captured the
Grand Champion award as well
as the Hendry County Bred Grand
Champion award with his 1,235
pound steer. Drew is a member
of the A-1 Steer Club. The breeder
of Drew's calf was Alico. Receiv-
ing the Reserve Champion award
and the Hendry County Bred Re-
serve Champion award was Ca-
leb Jordan who is also a member
of the A-1 Steer 4-H Club. Caleb's
steer weighed in at 1,248 pounds.
The producer of Caleb's calf was
Crawford Ranch. In order to
achieve the honor of receiving the
Hendry County Bred Grand and
Reserve Champion Steer award,
the steer had to be born in Hen-
dry County or the producer is a


current member of the Hendry
County Cattlemen's Association.
In the Senior Showmanship
division, Lucas Pratt achieved the
first place award with Drew Dyess
taking the second place award.
Lucas and Drew are both mem-
bers of the A-I Steer 4-H Club.
In the Junior Showmanship
division, Grady Jackson captured

turing the second place award.

job exhibiting their critters, thank
you leaders and parents. The A-I
Steer 4-H Club is led by Pat McGill
and the Double "H" Livestock 4-H
Club is led by Sidney Platt, Colette'
Willis and Chad Willis with Jeff

libraries.
One of Ms. Summers' ultimate
goals in life is to write and pub-
lish at least five books, becoming
a best-seller in the process. The
author and motivational speaker
already has two notches under
her belt.
In general, the books are
geared toward sharing her life sto-
ry and helping a variety of people
achieve their lifelong dreams.
"Overall, just being able to
share my story with young adults

courage and inspire others in their
dreams despite their obstacles,"

three years as a defensive co-
ordinator, Roth feels like he's
ready for the task ahead.
"First of all, I missed getting
involved with working with the
kids on the gridiron," Roth said.
"Now, as the head coach, I get
the opportunity to apply all the
knowledge that I have gathered
from the past coaches and pass
it on to the players."
Roth is a product of legendary
coach Al Morrell, who was the
Tigers' head coach from 1977
to 2001. He also worked under
current Glades Day Gators head
coach Pete Walker, Clewiston's
head coach in' 2002 and Tommy
Morrell, the head coach from
2003 to 2005.
The new head coach prom-
ises to bring a combination of a
hands-on/hands-off approach to
his new position.
"I believe I have good assis-
tants working for me and I'll let
them coach," Roth said. "How-
ever, I am going to be involved
in planning practices, breaking.
down film, being in the weight
room throughout the year and
doing all the day-to-day opera-
tions of a coach."
As far as being an athletic di-


Ms. Summers said.
Growing up in Clewiston, Ms.
Summers lost her mother at the
age of 14. That was followed by
the death of her father just two
years later.
The loss of both parents during
high school had an adverse affect
on Ms. Summers' life. Sadness,
confusion and anger lingered
throughout the grieving process,
and caused Ms. Summers to
slip into a depression and have
thoughts of giving up on school
and life.
"I was angry with the world
and I thought that being as stu-
dious as I was when I was a kid,
something like this wouldn't hap-
pen to me," Ms. Summers re-
membered. "I obeyed my parents


rector, Roth is encouraged with
how the entire athletic program
is'hi'add, especially 'ith' the re-
cent addition of boys' soccer.
"We 'have a great mix of
young and.experienced coaches
in our athletic program, which
mans we're headed in the right
direction," the new athletic di-
rector said.
One major change that will
occur is the return to the state-
mandated 2.0 minimum grade
point average, which seemingly
brings a sigh of relief to the stu-
dents and especially their par'-
ents.
A major complaint coming
from the community was Mr.
Antonacci's requirement that
students had to maintain at least
a 2.3 grade point average to play
sports. Roth feels that moving
back to the state-mandate is a
good idea for everyone.
"As a coach, you have to
teach kids about life opportuni-
ties in high school," Roth said.
"But I want to give more kids
the opportunity to play sports
and to learn those life lessons.
The previous policy made it dif-
ficult for students to have that
opportunity."
Roth plans' to evaluate his
players on discipline and work
ethic.
"You have to work with


and I stayed out of trouble. With
all that I went through, I consid-
ered throwing in the towel."
Nevertheless, Ms. Summers
knew that she had to persevere,
as she always had the dream to
graduate high school and pursue
a college degree.
Ms. Summers' older sister,
Genwrenia Gregory, shared the
tough experience with her, which
made their sisterly bond grow
closer after their parents passed
away.
"I believe that if you approach
each goal. knowing that God is
able to do everything except fail,
you'll begin to believe that any-
thing is possible."

someone on a daily basis to
get a good judgment on them,"
Rotf said. "idbo'ti think it's"'air
for me to make conclusions un-
til I do so."
Dr. Egley praised Roth for
having an old-school football
coaching mentality, preparing
student-athletes during the off-
season through it strength and
conditioning program.
"Mr. Roth is probably as close
to the best possible candidate
we could get," Dr. Egley said.
"He came up under coach Al
Morrell's program and learned
from the master. He believes in
positive representation on and
off the field, teamwork and the
ethic of hard work."'
With Dr. Egley's seal of ap-
proval, Roth feels that he's ready
to take the entire athletic pro-
-gram to new levels of success.
"My experience working with
the kids shows that they're ea-
ger to learn and do what's nec-
essary to become a successful
program," Roth said. "In the
end, if you look in the mirror
and believe that you did the best
you could, that's all I could ask
for."
