Clewiston Relay reaches


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- When David
McClusky signed on to chair this
year's Relay for Life event, he
wasn't willing to shortchange his
commitment. After all, the event
is the signature fund-raising proj-
ect for the American Cancer So-
ciety, and he was sure to give it
his all.
That showed late Saturday
night when Mr. McClusky was
taken to the hospital hours after
the event ended. There wasn't


anything especially wrong with
him, except for the fact that, by
his own admission, he had just
worked himself too hard for the
event.
"I just overdid it, my joints
locked up on me," said Mr. Mc-
Clusky.
He remained cheerful though,
buoyed by the fact that the event
exceeded his expectations.
Organizers hoped tq raise
$45,000 for-Cancer research.
With nearly one more month
to go, and some teams still in
fund raising mode, this year's


*program has already raised in
excess of $57,000.
The Seminole Tribe team
helped substantially, too, pitch-
ing in $10,000. Team members
were ecstatic to make the an-
nouncement.
At the event, a crowd of peo-
ple walked along one another
around the track during the lu-
minary ceremony. Among the
lighted candles lining the walk-
way were representations of
loved ones who lost their battle
against cancer.
A sad undercurrent to the


event was the Dec. 26th death
of Carl Hindenberg. Mr. Hinden-
berg was scheduled to serve as
the honorary co-chair. and had
been battling lung cancer until
the time of his passing the day
after Christmas.
According to Mr. McClusky, it
is the second time in recent years
that the honorary co-chair has
passed away.
The crowd took a few min-
utes to remember him and oth-
ers.
A large number of those walk-
ing were middle and high school

On Friday, Clewiston played host to a baseball game at the fields near the high school. Parents and spectators
cheered the boys on.


students showing' their support
of the effort. It was one of the
more notable accomplishments
of the Relay for Life committee. ,
"The goal was to have some-
thing more family-oriented," the
chair said. "That was successful,
and that's what it's all about."
Although there are many,
people to recognize in bringing
the event to life, Mr. McClusky
credits the team development
chair, Mary Thomas, for keeping
everyone focused.

Half-naked


man is


arrested

Intoxicated, one
man's 'puppy love'
interpretation foiled

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON A man figured
he could get away with dropping
his pants and engaging in very
improper activities with a neigh-
bor's pitbulls, police say.
Luis Reyes, 50, faces a charge
of indecent exposure.
It is one of the stranger cases
the Clewiston Police Department
has had to handle this year.
Thinking that the indecent ex- -
posure call was a run-of-the-mill
case, Officer Tito Nieves was sur-
prised March 2 when he learned
why he had been called to the
home on El Paso Ave.
The owner of the home took
the officer to her backyard,
where she keeps her dogs in a
cage that is supported by four
stills three feet from the ground.
It was there moments before
that the woman spotted one of
her neighbors, standing on a
chair, with his pants down fac-
ing the three-pitbulls. The man's
waist was the same height to the
dogs' faces.
The owner, Maria Rodriguez,
yelled at the man, but, oblivious,
the man did not listen. When
she shouted for him to get down,
the man climbed down from the
chair, pulled his pants up and
simply walked away into an al]
ley.
The owner, though, recog-
nized him as one of her neigh-
bors who frequently visits with
her back-door neighbor. She told
police the man seemed to be in-
toxicated.

Donation gives
children equipment
on which to play

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
HARLEM -- For some time
following the devastating ef-
fects of hurricanes in previous
years, some of the children at
Harlem Academy didn't have a
playground of their own.
According to Felicia Brown,
director, the children would
mostly play outside and could
only make use of the sidewalk
for exercise.
"Everybody was using just


one playground for a while,"
said Ms. Brown.
Now, thanks to the involve-
ment of one of its local busi-
ness partners, U.S. Sugar, the
center has two full playgrounds
-- one for infants and one for
toddlers.
The center, which serves
dozens of families in the area
through mostly subsidized day
care, received the gift with ex-
cited anticipation.
Administrators and local
community members met on
Wednesday, Feb. 27 for the of-
ficial ribbon-cutting.
Although the weather would
cool down considerably -- and
keep the little ones at bay for a


few more days -- they at least
found comfort in the fact that
when the sun would decide
to shine, they'd have all they
would need to enjoy recess
again.
U.S. Sugar donated $5,000
toward the playground equip-
ment, matched by Child Care
of Southwest Florida, the com-
pany that oversees Harlem
Academy.
The money went to good
use, and the center was able to
provide playground equipment
for its 130 kids in the program.
Hurricanes had wreaked
havoc on the center's toddler

ground set, the funding for which was donated by U.S. Sugar.

Protect yourself against the return of flu season


Good hygiene,
common sense
can prevent spread

By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
South Florida's warm climate
doesn't stop cold and flu season.
In fact, it may help it to spread.
Tourists and winter residents from
other areas, seeking the comfort
of Florida sunshine, also spread
cold and flu viruses.
According to the Center for
Disease Control, (CDC) the flu is
a contagious respiratory illness
caused by influenza viruses. It can
cause mild to severe illness, and
at times can lead to death.
CDC records show that every
year in the United States, on aver-
age 5 percent to 20 percent of the
population gets the flu. More than
200,000 people in the U.S. are
hospitalized each year from flu
complications, and about 36,000
people die from flu.

Some people are more at risk
because their immune system is
already compromised by age or
illness. Most at risk are the very
old, the veryyoung and those with
health conditions such as asthma,
diabetes or heart disease.
Symptoms of flu include:


*fever;
*headache;
*extreme tiredness;
*dry cough;
*sore throat;
'runny or stuffy nose;
*muscle aches: and
*nausea.
Vomiting and diarrhea can oc-
cur but are more common in chil-
dren than adults.
The flu can also lead to more
serious illnesses. According to
the CDC, complications of flu can
include bacterial pneumonia, ear
infections, sinus infections, dehy-
dration, and worsening of chron-
ic medical conditions, such as
congestive heart failure, asthma,
or diabetes.
Flu viruses spread mainly
from person to person through
coughing or sneezing of people
with influenza, the CDC warns.
Sometimes people may become
infected by touching something
with flu viruses on it and then
touching their mouth or nose. In-
fected persons may spread the flu

National Colorectal Cancer awareness month


Men, women
equally affected

Glenda Wilson
HRMC
March is National Colorectal
Cancer Awareness Month.
It takes guts to face the facts
about colorectal cancer and do
something about it. Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center wants you
to know the facts:
1.Colorectal cancer is the
second leading cause of cancer
deaths in the United States-
only lung cancer is more deadly,
affecting about 174,000 people
each year and taking 160,000
lives.
This year alone, about 149,000
Americans will be diagnosed
with colorectal cancer and about
55,000 will die from it. By com-
parison, breast cancer will affect
213,000 women this year and
claim about 41,000 lives. During
that same time, roughly 234,000


me


men will be diagnosed with pros-
tate cancer and 27,000 will die
from it.
2. Even though colon cancer
and rectal cancer are often re-
ferred to together (as colorectal
cancer), they describe cancers of
two different areas. Rectal cancer
occurs when a tumor grows in
the bottom 6 inches of the bow-
el. If a tumor grows in any area
of the bowel that's above the rec-
tum, it is called colon cancer.
3. Colorectal cancer affects
men and women in equal num-
bers. It is not a "man's disease,"
which is how some people
think.
4. Colorectal cancer doesn't
discriminate a person of any
race can get this disease. How-
ever, African-American men and
women are more likely to de-
velop colorectal cancer than any
other racial group, and they are
also more likely to die from it.
5. Although it is true that nine
out of ten cases of colorectal


cancer are diagnosed in people
older than 50, the average age for
diagnosis is only 62. This is why
doctors recommend that every-
one older than 50 should have
routine screening exams for col-
orectal cancer.
6. Genes can play a part in
who develops colorectal cancer.
As with many other diseases,
your risk goes up if a close fam-
ily member has had it. However,
the majority of people who get
colorectal cancer have no family
history at all.
7. The majority of people
who develop colorectal cancer
have no history of inflammatory
bowel disease or other bowel
conditions. Even if a person has
never had digestive problems of
any kind, he or she is still at risk
for colorectal cancer. However, a
change of bowel habits may be
an early symptom.
8. Colorectal cancer can grow
for a long time without caus-
ing any symptoms-or in some
cases, it may cause vague or low-


level symptoms that a person
might ignore. Often, by the time
it causes noticeable symptoms,
the cancer has become much
harder to treat.
9. Colorectal cancer is actu-
ally one of the most preventable
cancers. Tumors in the colon or
rectum begin as polyps (benign
growths), and it is possible to
detect and remove them before
they become cancerous. This is
done with a colonoscopy, a test
that uses a scope to examine the
entire colon and .rectum. If the
doctor finds any polyps, he or
she can remove them during the
exam.
10. When colorectal cancer
is found early meaning that
the cancer is confined to one
location within the colon or rec-
tum, it is very treatable, and the
vast majority of people survive.
It becomes much more difficult
to treat when it's discovered later
and after the cancer has spread
to other parts of the body.

medications may relieve the
symptoms of the flu. Consult your
doctor about which ones are best

Some OTC medications are

The CDC advises those most at
risk to be vaccinated against the
flu annually.
Good hygiene and common
sense can also help prevent
spread of the flu.
The CDC advises:
*Cover your nose and mouth
with a tissue when you cough or
sneeze -- throw the tissue away
after you use it.
*Wash your hands often with
soap and water, especially after
you cough or sneeze. If you are
not near water, use an alcohol-
based hand cleaner. -Stay away
as much as you can from people
who are sick.
*If you get the flu, stay home
from work or school. If you are
sick, do not go near other people
so that you don't make them
sick.
*Try not to touch your eyes,
nose, or mouth. Germs often
spread this way.
*If you get sick, get lots of rest,

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) a quiet threat


PALM BEACH COUNTY-Wel-
lington Regional Medical Center
announced its support of DVT
Awareness Month, joining a na-
tional effort to raise awareness
of this serious, yet preventable
condition and its potentially fatal
complication, pulmonary embo-.
lism (PE).
According to the American
Heart Association, up to 2 million
Americans are affected annually
by DVT; PE causes approximate-
ly 300,000 deaths in the United
States each year, more than AIDS
and breast cancer combined.
Yet, a national survey found
that 60 percent of Americans have
little or no awareness of DVT.
DVT occurs when a blood clot
forms and partially or completely
blocks blood flow inside a deep
vein, typically located in the calf or
thigh. If the blood clot breaks free
and travels to the lungs known
as a pulmonary embolism (PE), it
may obstruct the pulmonary ar-
tery or one of its branches, block-
ing blood flow to the heart.

top priority," said Jeffrey Bishop,
D.O., Wellington Regional's Chief
Medical Officer. "By heightening
awareness of the risk factors and
ensuring appropriate preventa-
tive measures are taken, we can
reduce the incidence of this con-
dition."
The Coalition to Prevent DVT,
a national organization funded by
sanofi-aventis U.S. LLC, is com-
prised of more than 45 members
from medical societies, patient
advocacy groups and other pub-
lic health organizations. It has
spearheaded DVT Awareness


Month efforts since its launch in
March 2003. Since the Coalition's
formation, more than 1 billion
educational messages have been
delivered.
Melanie Bloom, widow of
NBC correspondent David Bloom
and the Coalition's National Pa-
tient Spokesperson, along with
the Coalition and its member or-
ganizations, have turned to the
healthcare community this year
to ensure that proper care and
treatment of DVT is provided for
at risk patients. Ms. Bloom's per-

Rural Entrepreneurship through Action Learning


Beginning March 24, I will
be teaching a program entitled
REAL- Rural Entrepreneurship
through Action Learning. I have
mentioned this a few times but
will explain it for any new read-
ers. REAL is a unique 10 week
class that will take you through
all the different areas of your busi-
ness in a FUN, hands on, active
approach. I do not want to hear
myself talk for 3 hours, so I don't
expect you to do it either! You will
play games, analyze case stud-
ies, and apply the things we are
teaching you, allowing you to
retain the information easier and
more efficiently. I promise you
this is in no way a boring class.
It really is FUN! Both start up or
existing businesses are welcome
and encouraged to attend. Any-
one that has ever thought about
starting a business, or is in busi-
ness now can take something
from this class. You will learn
methods of research to see if your
idea has a legitimate chance at


ness.

success, learn marketing, develop
your product, price the product so
people are interested while you
still make money. The list goes
on and on and on and includes
how to increase your chances of
securing funding for your dream
business.
You also gain the advice of
guest speakers that are experts in
their field. We have had accoun-
tants, lawyers, marketing pro-
fessors, and bankers attend and
speak to the classes. If you stop


and think about what it would
cost you on a per hour basis to
sit and talk to these professionals,
and then add in that you do not
have to pay one additional penny
to do so if you take this class, it
more than pays for itself. Which
brings up a key selling point for
me- the cost of the class!
We ask for a deposit of $100,
and when you attend no less than
9 of the sessions, we will give you
back $90! So you are getting all of
this advice, research, planning,

the rest! Al1 exemptions shown
on the return must have valid so-
cial security numbers. If you don't
have a filing requirement, i.e., so-
cial security recipients, veterans
with disabilities, widows of vet-
erans with disabilities, or railroad
retirement benefit recipients, you
will need to send in a simple tax
return this year in order to receive
this payment. For the latest infor-

Putting off the hard things and the one who didn't


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I like to delay things that are
uncomfortable or disquieting,
and I'm in good company. If I can
avoid something, more than likely
it will come up again to haunt me
- and it may be worse! Everyone
knows about putting off the trip to
the doctor and the consequences
it can bring.
There are times when you
simply have to get things done.
Whether it is a trip to the den-
tist; going to school because my
daughter was having problems,
standing besides a loved one in
court, facing surgery, having a tax
audit; these'are the events that


cause people to say "Get it behind
you," "Get it over and get on with
your life." Whatever "it" may be,
we all look forward to having it
finished and done so better days
may come and we can have a
brigher future.
As we enter this coming week,
I began to think about this story
of "getting it done" and "getting
it behind, so that better days can
come." This Sunday will be Palm
Sunday- the next one Easter. Palm
Sunday is celebrated because it
commemorates a triumphal entry
into Jerusalem by the Lord: Jesus
and His disciples go up to Jerusa-
lem to celebrate the Passover, and
He institutes that sacred meal that
the faithful have been celebrating
ever since that Last Supper that


He has proclaimed we should
continue.
Following the supper comes
the 'darkest day in history. There
is a betrayal by someone who has
been taken in and counted among
the most intimate of friends, there
is an arrest and a trial that makes
a mockery of justice, there are in-
sults and brutality, and then there
is a painful and tragic death. "Get
it over with?" "Get it behind you?"
"Get on with your life?" Maybe
that was what it was all about!
The Lord did not procrastinate,
He entered the city knowing what
was to come, and He "got it over
,with" because that "it" would ac-
complish the reason He came. It
would enable Him to "get on with
His life" because the life would


not be ended; and would con-
tinue on, getting on with life once
more as ascended and risen. The
earthly life would be behind Him,
over with, because that would
open the door for all of us to "get
on with our lives" too.
The triumphal entry into Jeru-
salem (John 12:1ff), tells about
the crowds taking palm branches
out to meet Jesus, praising Him
and saying "Hosanna" "Save,
Lord", finding a young donkey for
Him to ride in as He enters in vic-
tory, people proclaiming "Blessed
is He who comes in the Name of
the Lord" and even those who
opposed Him saying "Look, the
whole world has gone after Him!
(verse 19)"
I am sure that the Lord was


aware of what was to come; He
had predicted it. He looked at the
big picture, faced what needed
to be faced because it meant He,
and all of us too would be able to
"get on with our lives."
The triumphal entry is a sign
that there was no procrastination,
no putting off the hard moments,
but facing up and then finally be-
ing the victor over it all. Palm Sun-
day and this special coming week
that culminates in Easter is the
promise that we can "get on with
our lives" too and not only this
life but the life to come.
It is really about "getting on"
in eternity, with the Lord, forever,
and the gift of eternal life that
comes at the end of it all. The
week not about putting off, not


procrastinating, not about unnec-
essary delay, but knowing that the
hard moments will bring triumph
and be the reason for the coming
into the world. As people pray "...
thy will be done" we can think of
the events of this coming week
and say "Surely, God's will was
done" and take His witness as an
example for us all. He did what
needed to be done, and because
of it, we all have received some-
thing wonderful. May this time of
preparing for Easter be a special
time for each of us as we remem-
ber, then give thanks as the story
unfolds; this greatest love story
of all times that He so loved the
world that He gave His only-be-
gotten Son for it and for us.


The stones will shout aloud Religion News i


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Jesus spent His last Sabbath
in Bethany with His friends. The
news had already begun to cir-
culate that He was coming into
Jerusalem. The Bible narrative
reports that as He approached
the city, a great multitude came to
meet Him. Among them were not
only the citizens of Jerusalem, but
also those who had come up for
the feast of the Passover, and, of
course, the Pharisees who hated
him so. Also present were th Ro-
man authorities who had been
put on alert during the great feast
times lest there be some kind of
revolution.
Now, the time had come and
there was acclaim. Garments lined
the road before Him; limbs from
olive and palm trees were strewn
along the way. And the shouts
of recognition were deafening:
they cried, "blessings on Him
who comes as King in the name
of the Lord." Jesus openly admit-
ted now that He was the One sent
from God. To those who would
seek to quiet His subjects along
the way, His response was one
of awful majesty. He responded,
"I tell you, if my disciples keep si-
lence the stones will shout aloud.
(Luke 19:40).


Yet amidst all the pompt and
ceremony there was sadness in
the heart of Jesus Christ. Though
He was King, He knew that the
welcome would be fleeting. He
looked at the city and He cried,
saying, "If only you had known,
on this great day, the way that
leads to peace! But no; it is hid-
den from your sight. (vs. 42).
The parade is over now, the
palm branches have all been
swept up and the clothes gath-
ered by those who threw them.
Jesus had been taken before the
authorities. The scene turns to a
man by the name of Peter; and
in six words that epitomize him
and the world in which we live,
he said, "I know not the man!"
These words were spoken by
a man who all of a sudden was
ashamed of the best thing that
had ever come into his life.
This can happen. You may
think it won't, but it happens.
It happens to the best of us in
those moments when we are
called upon to make some obvi-
ous stand. We somehow forget
that at one time we were shout-
ing hosannas and spreading palm
branches in the path of the Son
of God. It happens because of
fatigue, peer pressure, and unful-
filled willingness to follow the will


of God, perhaps by a selfish desire
to run things our own way. Who
knows? But when it happens, the
same sense of sorrow that caused
Jesus to cry as He overlooked the
city of Jerusalem, causes Him to
cry anew. The pain of rejection
echoes down through the chan-
nels of time-2,000 years later!
When we follow Him, He asks
us to:
1.Make our faith real to oth-
ers. We cannot give away some-
thing we do not have, but when
we have genuinely believed and
obeyed, we begin our pilgrimage
as Christian disciples.
2.Witness to our faith. Techni-
cally, we know that a witness is
someone who is present when
something of significance hap-
pens.
When we express this dynam-
ic faith, it does two things.
(a) It fortifies the person who
gives the witness;
(b) It moves the ordinary hear-
er of the witness to acknowledge
their own need.
You hold the key to eternal life!
Not just for yourself but for many.
You must be so convinced of your
faith and in your ability that, even
all though all others remain silent,
you will continue to proclaim Je-
sus Christ as Lord.


Caterpillar steps and butterfly flight


By Pator John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Each year before Easter, we
order over a hundred caterpillars
to raise into butterflies so they can
be released by children and fami-
lies at our flower cross on Easter
Sunday morning.
They arrived last week, and as
I spent the evening using a small
paint brush to transfer caterpillars
to their individual feeding contain-
ers, oddly enough, my thoughts
turned to caterpillars. Over the
years I have learned more and
more about them as I raised them
for release.
It is amazing to watch a cat-
erpillar spin a chrysalis. It is even
more amazing to watch a butter-
fly emerge from its cocoon! But-
terflies symbolize new life, which
make them an excellent illustra-
tion for Easter. Their emergence
from their cocoons is symbolic of
Jesus' emergence from the tomb.
But butterflies teach us other im-
portant life lessons as well.
The butterflies we get help the
environment by pollinating plants


and do not lay eggs on crop pro-
ducing plants. It's good to bless
the environment we live in and
not cause it harm. Generally, the
caterpillars spend 7-10 days eat-
ing before they spin their cocoon.
They spend 7-10 days in their co-
coon before emerging as butter-
flies. Some spend a longer time
eating, and some spend a longer
time evolving before emerging -
a lot like us! Their environment
can speed up or slow down the
overall process of being what God
intended them to be. Again, a lot
like us! To get butterflies ready
to fly for Easter release calls for
advance planning, timely effort,
and prayer. That would be a good
formula for all of us and for every
project we want to complete!
And then there is the life lesson
of struggle and perseverance. A
man found a cocoon of a butterfly
and took it home. One day a small
opening appeared, and the man
sat and watched the butterfly for
a long time as it struggled to force
its body through the little hole.
Then the butterfly seemed to stop
making any progress. It appeared


as if it had gotten as far as ii could,
and it could go no further.
So the man decided to help it
out. He took a pair of scissors and
snipped off the remaining bit of
the cocoon. The butterfly emerged
easily. The man continued to
watch the butterfly because he
expected that, at any moment, the
wings would enlarge and expand
to be able to support the body,
which would contract in time.
Neither happened! In fact, the
butterfly spent the rest of its life
crawling around with a swollen
body and shriveled wings. It never
was able to fly.
What the man, in his kindness
and haste did not understand was
that the restricting cocoon and the
struggle required for the butterfly
to get through the tiny opening
were God's way of forcing fluid
from the body of the butterfly into
its wings so that it would be ready
for flight once it achieved its free-
dom from the cocoon.
Sometimes struggles are ex-
actly what we need in our lives in
order to be strong enough to fly.

SAVE YOUR VISION MONTH: HEALTHY VISION AT THE COMPUTER
People who sit in front of a computer for long periods of time often encounter a variety
of uncomfortable symptoms. Headaches, neck strain, backaches and wrist pain are com-
mon, but, sadly, the most prevalent symptoms of prolonged computer use-eye strain,
blurred vision and dry eye-are often overlooked. In fact, eye and vision problems are the
most frequently reported health care problems among computer users.
TIPS FOR HEALTHY, COMFORTABLE VISION AT THE COMPUTER
While decreasing time spent at a computer may not be an option, there are ways to max-
imize healthy vision for comfortable use of the computer.
Have a regular comprehensive eye exam to ensure your eyes are healthy and
that you have the correct eyeglass or contact lens prescription (if necessary).
Be certain to tell your optometrist about the computer work you do.
Wear glasses that are specifically designed to function comfortably at the com-
puter. The lenses you wear for day-to-day activities may not be the best for
working at the computer.
Rest the eyes
Blink forcefully
Use a humidifier
Instill artificial tears
After you have had a comprehensive eye examination, there are a number of things that
you can do to arrange and use the elements of your workstation to eliminate or minimize
discomfort.
WORKSTATION SETUP FOR COMFORTABLE COMPUTER USE
Feet should be flat on the floor (or on a slightly angled foot rest) with knees
bent close to or greater than 90 degrees.
Chair seat should support the legs without excessive pressure on the back of
the things.
The back should be snug against the seat to fit your spinal contour. Thigh-to-
trunk angle should be 90 degrees or greater.
Wrists and hands should extend nearly straight from the elbow to the home
row of the keyboard.
A commonly preferred work surface height for keyboard use is about 26" as
opposed to the conventional 29" of most tables or desks.
*Place the monitor 20" 26" from your eyes, depending on the size of the mon-
itor and individual vision conditions.
The monitor and keyboard should be straight ahead.
Keel the monitor free of fingerprints and dust. Both can reduce clarity
Place document holders close to the screen within the same viewing dis-
tance.. Keep the keyboard and monitor in line.
Adjust the keyboard tilt angle so that wrists are straight.

HEALTHY COMPUTER USE
Although the visual system faces considerable challenges when using a computer, most
issues can be solved. Remember that problems with the use of the computer cause need-
less discomfort and may rob productivity Heeding the suggestions made here along with
those made by you r doctor of optometry, will enable you to use your computer comfort-
ably and productively

"Out of 347 teams in Florida,
we're one of only three that have
met criteria and goals," said the
event chair. "Clewiston's never
done that before."
As the event kicked off, there
was a host of smiling faces, warm
embraces, and unusually excited
activity demonstrated in everyone
at the Fairgrounds.
Vendors inside sold items up
until the last minute to help their
teams contribute more to the fund
raiser, and crowds happily took
part in the venue, urging others
to continue walking on the track,
or providing a comforting word to
their fellow team members.
It was simply a success.
So what was the deciding fac-
tor?
"It was a lot of teamwork,"
said Mr. McClusky. "We bathed
this Relay in prayer."
