ness "forever" and never has he
seen anything like this before.
"Th~ese prices are a reaction
to the commodity traders trading
everyday."
The prices don't just change
at the pump, he says.
The major oil companies
drive the price.
That's who is making the
money, not gas stations. In7 ef-
fect, gas stations are really losing
money mna sense.
Store owners are beginning to
literally depend on their "bread
and butter." They want to get
people to buy inside of the store


in response to the recent decline
at the pump.
Many gas stations are turning
a higher profit inside.
"'Buy this cooler and I will
give you a free bag of ice," said
one local gas station owner as a
patron refused to pay $7.99 for a
small, Styrofoam cooler.
"Everything is going up," the
store owner said.
So why not just lower the gas
prices?
Well. ~Plainly speaking, gas
stations are like any other busi-
ness in that they are in it to make
money.


They are running a business
that must turn a profit mn order to
survive.
"We still have to pay insur-
ance, property taxes, utilities,
payroll.and [many other opera-
tion costs)," said Berner, who
has been in the btisiness for 30
years.
He says, "If we lower the
prices, we lose money. If we
raise the prices, we lose~ money
because people want the cheap-
est gas."

Sheriff s office
offers cash award
for tips

By N ji Tobias

BiELLE GLADE One yeair
later, an unsolved Imiurder con-
tinues to loom large in the area.
The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office (PBSO) held a news
conference on April 16 at- the
Belle Glade Ice House, the site of
the homicide of Carl 3. Edwards.
It was a somber gathering at
the location as family members
and co-workers rehashed mem-
ories of the fateful incident.
According to the sheriff's of-
fice, on Monday, April 16, 2007 at
approximately 11:13 p.m., depu-
ties responded to shots fired out-
side Wilkinson Cooper Produce,
Inc., 1-132 N. W. 9th St.
After the deputies arrived on
the scene, it was discovered that
the victim, of 518 Reddish Circle
in Clewiston, was found dead in-
side his white 2006 Ford Escape
sport utility vehicle of a gunshot
wound, detectives said.
Investigators described the
motive of the crime as failed rob-
bery attempt by twvo male sus-
pects, who are still at large.
According to Detective Fred
Rifflard, Mr. Edwards was with
another co-worker that night as

struggling with
lower profits

By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
Gas prices are rising every
single day.
On April 6, a gallon of regu-
lar gasoline from a local Hess
pumped consumers at $3.42 per
gallon.
Thirteen days later, a local
Valero siphoneda $0.13 increase


from the proverbial market wal-
let at $3.65. What is going on?
"Well we just pump the gas,
really," a local gas station man-
ager said with a chuckle.
Others don't feel it is a laugh-
ing matter,
"You know it's getting ridicu-
lous now," said a patron as she
pumped her $3.69 per gallon reg-
ular gas on Monday. "But what
are you gonna do? We need gas.
You can't put three kids on a bi-
cycle to go buy grocery."

Company offers an explanation.

Clewiston police chief, had
nothing but good things to say
about the men who represent
his law enforcement unit.
Mr. Whidden was honored
by the DEA for his work in the
area, the details of those ex-
ploits have since become com-
mon knowledge in his depart-
ment.
Early in his DEA career, Mr.
Whidden boarded adeep-water
sailboat and left Miami's ports
with the hope of a big drug
bust. His work there eventually
led him to Jamaica, where he
worked at making a deal with
drug traffickers.
The effort paid off. The deal
was to be made in Clewiston,


'Aork in narcotics,

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Tivo of
Clewiston's finest were recently
honored on individual merits.
They are: Steve Whidden,
who was recognized for his
outstanding work as an under-
cover agent for the Drug En-
forcement Agency (DEA), and
Justin Spence, for the officer's
work in putting online preda-
tor's behind bars.
Last week, Don Gutshall,


but law enforcement agencies
were ready.
The bust netted $6 million
in drugs, and a picture of the
chief sitting above the bundles
of narcotics still hangs in his of-
lice.
Mr. Whidden served in that
dual capacity from 2005 to
2007, and also had a stint as a
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
deputy during that time.
As a patrol officer for Clewis-
ton, Mr. Whidden has done
well, Chief Gutshall said.
"He's done a very good job
working in the street," said the

6:30 p.m. on April 23 and April
30. On April 23, the program will
focus on Africanized bees and the
challenges they continue to pose
for Florida beekeepers, the agri-
culture industry and the general
public
On April 30, the program will
` profile Bu~ller Oaks Farm in Lonida
and Tampa Wholesale Nursery in
Dover;
The Africanized honey bee
population has grown and will
continue to grow in Florida due
to its numerous pathways into
the state and the lack of effec-
tive eradication products or tech-
niques,
The April 23 program shows
how the Florida Department of
Agriculture, in cooperation with
other agricultural stakeholders, is
developing the tools to protect the
beekeeping industry and educate
the public on how to hive with
this potentially dangerous insect.
Although all honey bees will sting
when their nest is threatened by
invaders, African bees defend
their nests with less provocation,
in greater numbers and for longer
distances than their cousins, the
docile European honey bees that
we have in the U.S.

committee today and is headed
for a full vote before the Florida
H-ouse of Representatives.
The measure, flouse Bill 647
by Representative Matt Hudson
(R-Naples) would put an end to
the practice of assessing a new
Documentary stamp tax upon
the addition of the name of a
spouse to an existing deed.
"This bill ends unfair double
taxation of homeowners who
get married," said Representa-
tive Hudson.
"As the law stands, if a Flo-
ridian marries a homeowner
and adds his-or her name to the


deed held by their spouse, they
pay what is in essence a mar-
riage tax.
"Yet the tax does not apply
when a spouse is removed from
a deed. The state is rewarding di-
vorce and penalizing marriage.
"This common sense mea-
sure won't solve all our property.
tax problems, but it is good pub-
lic polic and a small step in the
right direction toward restoring
fairness to our current property
tax system," added Rep. Hud-
son
On a new home worth
$300,000 and with a $240,000
mortgage, the tax savings would
be $840.

The District implemented one-
day-a-weekc restrictions region-
wide in January for the first time
in the agency's history, based on
extreme water shortage condi-
tions and a continued rainfall defi-
cit of close to 25 inches.
SFWMD Governing Board
Chairman Eric. Buerrmann said
last week, "It's important to note
that we are not lifting emergency
restrictions. Our decision to mod-
ify the restrictions is based on the
improved conditions of our water
resources."

Although the revised land-
scape irrigation restrictions go
into effect April 18, the SFWMD
is encouraging local governments
to refrain from enforcement until
Thursday, May 1. The goal is to
provide residents with sufficient
time to become aware of the
changes and adjust timers or oth-
er components of their residential
irrigation systems.
The modified mandatory re-
strictions apply to all water from
traditional sources, including wa-
ter from public utilities, private
wells, canals, ponds and lakes.

Highlights of the Modified
Phase II Water Shortage Order


Residents and businesses of
Broward, Collier, Miamni-Dade,
Monroe, St. Lucie and coastal
areas of Lee, Martin and Palm
Beach counties, including the City
of West Palm Beach, are limited
to a two-day-per-week landscape
irrigation schedule with twvo "wa-
tering windows":
Odd street addresses may ir-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Wednesday and Saturdays from
12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m.
to 11:59 p.m.
Even street addresses may ir-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Thursday and Sundays from 12
a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m. to
11:59 p.m.
Hand-watering with one hose
fitted with an automatic shut-off
nozzle is allowed for 10 minutes
per day for landscape stress relief
and to prevent plant die-off. Addi-
tional watering days and times are
allocated for the establishment of
new lawns and landscapes.

No restrictions apply to other
outside water uses, such as for
car and boat washing, pressure
cleaning of paved surfaces, deco--
rative fountains and water-based
recreation (e.g. swimming pools,
water slides).


Lake Worth and Lantana and
portions of unincorporated Lee
County, including the Lehigh
Acres and Gateway areas.
One-day-a week landscape ir.
rigation remains in place for resi-
dents and businesses in the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area, which
includes portions of Glades, Hen-
dry, Okeechobee and western
Martin and Palm Beach counties.

The District's nine-member
Governing Board last week ad-
opted a "Modified Phase II Severe
Water Shortage Order" based on
improved regional water resource
conditions. Under the District's
emergency authority, decisions
to implement and modify water
shortage restrictions are resource-
based.
The new schedule for land.
scape watering will continue con-
serving water supplies as part of
the District's response to the re-
gional rainfall deficit. Landscape
irrigation accounts for up to half
of all household water consump-
tion in Florida.


Landscape irrigation using
100-percent reclaimed water is al-
lowed any day except Friday, from
12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or from 4
p.m. to 11:59 p.m.
Golf courses must reduce their
allocated water use by 30 per-
cent.

Because jurisdiction in certain
counties is shared with other wa-
ter management districts, the SF-
WMD has coordinated with these
agencies to simplify implementa-
tion and enforcement:
Residents of Orange and Os-
ceola counties should adhere to
any water restrictions set by the
St. Johns River Water Manage-
ment District.
Residents of Polk, Charlotte
and Highlands counties should
adhere to the water restrictions
set by the Southwest Flonida Wa-
ter Management District.

The week of May 19 to 25, has
been designated as National Rec-
reational Water Illness Prevention
Week.
The goal of this year's recogni-
tion is to highlight the importance
of healthy swimming behaviors
in preventing recreational water
illnesses. State and local health
departments across the country
investigated more RWI outbreaks
in 2007 than ever before. This
upsurge is being driven by an
increase in the number of RW1
outbreaks caused by Cryptospo-
ridium ("Crypto"), a chlorine re-
sistant parasite, and is primarily as-


sociated with treated recreational
water venues, such as pools and
water parks. CDC has received at
least 18 preliminary reports on
such outbreaks for 2007. Remem-
ber, even a well maintained pool
can transmit Crypto.
Awareness of recreational wa-
ter illnesses and healthy swinri-
ming behaviors play an important
role in stopping transmission of
RWls. Germs on and in swim-
mers' bodies can end up in the
water and can make other people
sick. Even healthy swimmers
can get sick from RWls, but the
young, elderly, pregnant women


and immunosuppressed persons
are especially at risk. Specific ac-
tions you can take to promote
healthy swimming include:
*Do not swim when you have
diarrhea.
*Do not swallow pool water
or get pool water in your mouth.
*Shower before swimming,
children too!
*Wash your hands after using
the toilet or changing diapers.
*Take children on bathroom
breaks or change diapers often.
*Change children's diapers in
a bathroom, not at poolside.
Recreational water venues are


important sites for exercise and
leisure. To make, this summer a
Healthy Swimming experience,
the Hendry and Glades County
Health Department and the Cen-
ters for Disease Control and Pre-
vention urge swimmers to contin-
ue to enjoy swimming, but only
after adopting healthy swimming
behaviors to reduce the risk of
recreational water illnesses.

vention Week 2008 can be

"Greater awareness of the im-
portance of water conservation
is clearly growing among all Flo-
ridians," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chairman Eric Buermann.
"We applaud the many commu-
nities tha'f piiblicly share the pri-

one 6f our state's most valuable


resources."
Floridians consume more than
7.9 billion gallons each day of

pchient~ of it SupFpliE~d by under-
ground' liquifers. South Florida's
unique environment and its econ-
omy depend on the continued
availability of these shared water
resources. Formal proclamations
supporting water conservation
have been made throughout the
District's 16 counties by munici-
palities ranging from small towns
to metropolitan cities and coun-
ties,
The District is taking a lead
role in developing a comprehen-
s'ive water conservation program


that will encourage more respon-
sible use of water resources. Nu-
merous stakeholders are working
with th,e Drstrict to study ideas:for
liew regulatory anld year-round*
landScapee irrigation : measures ;
voluntary and incentive-based
programs and in-depth education
and marketing plans. -
The group has been meeting
monthly since December, and
District staff presented their draft
recommendations to the SFWMD
Governing Board on April 9.
Throughout Water Conserva-
tion Month, the District is conduct-
ing numerous public outreach ac-
tivities, such as demonstrations of
cistern use, mobile irrigation labs


and Florida-friendly landscaping.
Other activities include inviting
TV weathercasters and other me-
dij to inco~rpo:rate a -daily water
casts and' publications; speaking
engagements; and part~itipatioll
in dozens of community events
throughout the 16-county re-

TO Speeders:
On the morning of Monday,
April 14, you hit my beloved

Gorg a a he Elsh 5- ar- ld
very loved, neutered male and
would have had no problem
avoiding your oncoming tires if
you had not been s eedin 8'
George didn't die immedi-
ately. He dragged h mself to a
neighbor's yard and suffered un-
noticed until he died. Speeders, if
only you had been kind enough
to have stopped! There may have
been a chance fpr George to live,
if he could have had medical help
right away.
Speeders, I just want you to
know how very disappointed and
deeply hurtl1am that you were too
callous and uncaring to stop and
at least give George a chance.
To you he was probably just a

CleWiStOH'S gemI
While vacationing in Fla., in
the friendly town of Clewiston,
we were taCein ssoutwloennUwSj

saw sugar cane being harvested.
Being a dairy farmer and inter~
ested in all aspects of farming ~my
husband stopped, did some video
taping and spoke at length to the
foreman of the harvesting crew.
The foreman was very informa-
tive about the operation and sug-
gested that we stay at the Clewis-
so atn fo the evenig onhee Inn
so friendly. While we were there
we met the most remarkable lady
-- Opal Hancock. She was so kind,
open and friendly to us. She gave
us a personal tour of your town
including the history. Opal had
us laughing with her humor and
we had the most enjoyable time
with her. Since we've been home
we talked with her on the phone,
thanking her again for her genu-
ine hospitality. So, we hope that
everyone in Clewiston knows
what a gem of a lady you have in


your town, someone who loves
and serves her community with
passion, Opal Hancock.
Blessings,
Herb and Darlene
Kreider

Quarryville, PA.

A wonderful friend
I want to extend my thanks to
a wonderful friend who lives in
Clewiston. My sister and I drove
over to see Opal Hancock on
Tuesday, we arrived about 10:30
a.m. She greeted us and asked if
we would like a tour of the city
before going to the historical inn
to eat. We had the most interest-
ing detailed tour of the city. I had
gone through town many times
and never knew there were so
many beautiful homes and his-
tory of this town. She is a great
asset to your town and puts out
a lot of kindness to other people.
Thank you Opal.

alcohol, and sex, to fill in their
free time. Our goal is to show our
youth that there are other alterna-
tives, and our community is there
to help them abstain from these
behaviors. Let's show them the
benefits of getting involved with
safe activities that will give them

basis in science: Chicken soup re-

symptoms because many of the
ingredients -- such as thyme, on-
ions, parsley, sage, celery -- con-

medicines.
Other home remedies may
work simply because people be-

increase pain and relaxation can
help reduce pain. Believing in a
home remedy may help reduce
stress, even if the remedy has no
real medicinal value.


Home remedies are often
popular because they are inex-

cure for warts is to put a piece of
duct tape on the wart. And quite
often this does work. .
Another inexpensive home

piece of banana skin (soft side to

TALLAHASSEE-Twelve Florida
Reading First school districts and
13 Blue Ribbon Schools (BRS)
were honored by the State Board
of Education (SBE) and Educa-
tion Commissioner Eric 3. Smith
at a special awards breakfast in
Tallahassee.
"I applaud these districts and
schools for their outstanding ef-
forts to ensure that all Flonida
students receive a first-rate edu-
cation," said State Board of Edu-
cation Chairman T. Willard Fair.
"These are extraordinary accom-
plishments that serve as proof of
the hard work taking place in our
classrooms evergiday."
The 12 Reading First school
districts in attendance repre-
sented the top 25 percent of all


Reading First districts in Florida.
Reading First grants assist Florida
school districts and schools with
implementation of proven meth-
ods of scientifically-based reading
instruction in classrooms in order
to prevent reading difficulties in
grades K-3.
The 13 Blue Ribbon Schools
honored are part of the U.S. De-
partment of Education sponsored
BRS program. Last year, the pro-
gram recognized 287 elemren-
tary, middle and high schools
across the nation that were either
academically superior or demon.
strated dramatic gains in overall
student achievement in both
reading and mathematics. Estab-
lished in 1982, the BRS program
has since been redesigned to re-


flect the goals of higher standards
and accountability of the No Child
Left Behind Act (NCLB).
"The districts and schools here
today represent the hard-working
teachers, principals and parents
across the state who strive every-
day to improve the lives of our
children said Commissioner
Smith. "I'm thrilled to have the
opportunity to congratulate them
personally for these remarkable
successes.

The Florida Department of
Health acknowledges April 19 to
26 as National Infant Immuniza-
tion Week, an annual campaign
highlighting the importance of
providing appropriate immuniza-
tions to every child by age two.
Since 1994, National Infant Im-
munization Week has served as
a call to action for parents, care-
.givers and healthcare providers
to ensure that infants are fully
immunized against 14 vaccine-
preventable diseases. This year's
theme is, "Love Them, Protect
Them, Immunize Them."
"National Infant Immuniza-
tion Week provides a valuable
opportunity for our community
to tell people the importance of
vaccinating all children," Charles
Alexander, DOH Bureau Chief of
Immunization, said. "Vaccination
is one of the most important ways
a parent can protect a child's
,health." -
Additionally, the National
Immunization for Polio Preven-
tion in Infants and Toddlers or
"NIPP IT" Campaign is being
highlighted during this week.
NIPl? IT promotes immunization


of all children against polio at
twio months of age, four months
of age, six months of age, and a
booster at four years of age. The
NIPP IT theme is, "Don't wait to
vaccinate!"
Nationwide, immunization
levels remain high and vaccine-
preventable diseases are at an
all-time low. In 2007, Florida's
immunization coverage level for
children aged two was 83.2 per-
cent. The state's goal is to reach
90 percent immunization cover-
age levels by 2010 for each of the
vaccines administered to two-
year-old children.
Today, children can be
protected from more vaccine-
preventable diseases than ever
before. Infant immunization is a
safe, simple and inexpensive way
to protect children from potential-
ly deadly infectious diseases. Ba-
bies need many immunizations
before two years of age to protect
against serious childhood disease
es like polio, measles, whooping
cough and diphtheria. The Cen-
ters for Disease Control offers
the following tips for parents and
caregivers:


*Take babies to a doctor
or clinic for shots. Immuniza-
tions start at birth and continue
throughout the first two years of
a child's life. .
*At each visit, discuss
immunizations with a doctor or
health care provider. Ask if the
baby is up-to-date on shots.
*Keep the immunization
record in a safe place and bring it
to every doctor's visit.
*Ask the doctor when to
return for the baby's next shots.
Make an appointment, and write
it down.
In recent years, the delivery
of immunization services has
shifted from local health depart-
ments to the private sector, with
private providers and managed
care organizations administering
over 66 percent of childhood im-
munizations.
DOH promotes, protects and
improves the health of all people
in Florida.
Formiformation about immuni-
zations, please visit the DOH web
site at www immunizeflorida. org

partment.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


as if to seek my approval or say,
"ls this the one you want me to
pick?"
I realized that I was challenged
with someone who must have
lived in fear for a long, long timer
The way back would be a haril
one and the things that other chil-
dren might expect would be a
long time in coming.
The parents felt they were be'-
ing' "punished." Their child ha(
been taken away.
I saw first-hand the violation
of a sacred trust, the betrayal of a
confidence that came from God.
Lots of intervention was needed
in a very disturbed system and
home.
I pray that they, and all those
who live in a vulnerable house-
hold get it.


cause one of these little ones to
sin (Luke 17:1)."
If there is something worse
than sinning, it is causing another
to sin.
The Lord is down on those
who ignore their responsibility to
the helpless and vulnerable.
Children who are locked in
cars and left, or who are found
on school buses after the route
is over, or who are left at home
without proper provision while
parents are away receive our sym-
pathy.
The Lord who supported the
weak and the vulnerable has left
us with a conscience that is ap-
palled when they are victimized,
even accidentally or unintention-
ally.
The codes of ethics that gov-
ern our relationships with those


entrusted to our care require us
to provide extra care, going the
second mile to protect them be-
cause they are unable to protect
themselves,
The strong must use their
strength to protect and defend
the weak; those who look after
children must recognize the hid-
den dangers around them, the
unforeseen problems they might
encounter, the dangers that will
not be obvious to them.
I remember working with an
abused child who had been taken
from the home.
We'd talk and then one day we
walked through a mall and I said,
"Go and pick out something for
yourself from the counter in the
store."
The child looked back at me
each time an item was touched,


that i was the elderly man who
became concerned about the
child and where he belonged;
apparently before the parents or
guardians. At the same time, my
news was filled with parents who
wanted their children returned.
They live in Texas, are part of a
religious cult, and have had their
children removed from their com-
pound because of allegations of
abuse,
There was a contrast in my
mindb between parentswho should
have been more concerned about
where their son was, arid those
who are now highly concerned
about where their children are
going to be placed -- and are re-
ported to be distressed by having
them removed.
The Lord himself caused his
parents to be upset when he was


around 12-years-old. Jesus was
on His own. He was at the syna-
gogue with His parents (Luke
2:41ff) and His parents left, sup-
posing He was bring looked after
by his kinfolk and acquaintances.
After a day's journey, they
were worried, not finding Him
with anyone they knew, and re-
turned to the temple where they
found Him. He receives a rebuke
and replied that He had to be
about His father's business.
Their concern springs from
their love and concern for the
Son entrusted to them. Jesus will
grow and He will tell His disciples,
"Temptations to sin are sure to
come, but woe to him by whom
they come. It would be better
for him if a millstone were hung
'round his neck and he were cast
into the sea than that he should


The Rev. Samuel
Thomas, Ph. D+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
A little guy was dropped off
in a neighboring community
and left for some time with the
elderly man who finally became
concerned when nobody showed
up to claim him. He called the au-
thorities, the child's picture was
put on television and he was rec-
ognized.
The guardians were located
and reported that they had acci-
dentally dropped him off at the
wrong house. The TV audience
wasn't given all that transpired,
except it was noted that the
woman "wore a wig." No charges
were filed, according to the news
report.
What piqued my curiosity was

how many people you can dailjr

the back of the room call out,
"Help him, Jesus, help him!"
We said it in jest, but there
was a lot of truth behind it. When
someone stutters or falls, our
prayer should be, "Help him,
Jesus, help him!" If a mother is
struggling with a child, "Help her,
Jesus, help her!" As you drive by
those areas of town that need
help, don't hesitate to ask our
Lord to help them. If you see
someone in an accident, a col-
league at work in need, or a friend


suffering, go to the Master Helper
and ask for Him to help out.
And when someone does
something good or night, let our
responses be, "Arnen!" or "Thank
You, Lord!" Some research has
shown that we need the equiva-
lent of 17 good affirmations a
day in order to thrive. These can
come in the forms of encourag-
ing words, hugs, handshakes'
and even "Amens." The world
around us is starving for these af-

no getting around it.
Fortunately, lhad scriptural

As I was sharing the message that
I had, a lady in the back stood up
and shouted "Amen!"
1 had never been "amened"
before. It was kind of neat. I be-
came even more inspired as
"Yes, Lord!" and more amens fol-
lowed.


One of my colleagues, how-
ever, struggled when his turn
came to preach. He struggled and
we struggled in empathy with
him. Finally, the same lady who
amened me stood up, raised her
hand, and shouted, "Help him,
Jesus. Help him!"
We later laughed about it, but
"Help him, Jesus, help him!" be-
came a battle cry that caught on
throughout my seminary career.

they had some "preachers-going-

A legitimate role for the press is that of "thie public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't: spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine howu well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proxid to be different. We try to carry out our watchdogg" role as
.humble representatives of the public,' always maintaining a courteous
toine and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are, we doing?

us that we may learn how to be
victorious over temptation.
"Then Jesus was led by the

This account of Jesus' battle
with Satan is especially meaning-


Victory is a process.
The more we face temptation,
the stronger we become.
We all yield to temptation at
times.
Wlihen we do, let us go to God
and confess our sins.
Then get back up and press
on for the mark of the prize of the
high calling of God.

ful because the only way the dis-
ciples knew of Christ's temptation
was that he told them. Jesus was
alone in the desert when he faced
the devil.
He shared his struggle the ex-
perience of his struggle to help
them face their struggles.
The devil tempted him in an
effort to defeat him from carrying
out the will of God. Christ's temp-
tation was real.
It was not play-acting.
He faced greater temptations
than we do.
Satan doesn't have to. use his
full force against us, but he did
against Christ.
Yet, Jesus overcame him!
The temptations Christ faced are
the ones we, too, must face and
defeat if we are to do the will of
God.
Christ overcame and He will
enable us to overcome if we fol-
low his example,
Because Christ lives in us, He
gives us his victory and power.
He lives out his victory in us.
It is a mystery but a great re-
ality "Christ lives in me" (Gal
2:20).
We can face temptation with
victory: "Greater is he who is in
us than he that is in the world" (1
John 4:4).
We know that Christ is in heav-
en but He has put the Holy Spirit
in our hearts.
The Spirit gives us the power
to say no to temptation and yes to
God (Titus 2:1-12).
The same Lord who defeated
the devil in the wilderness will de-
feat him in your life.
You have to see yourself as a
victor if you are to be victorious.
Many battles are lost before they
are ever fought because we ex-
pect to be defeated.
We suffer from self-doubt in-
stead of trusting the power of the
risen Lord.


a.m. and then again from 6 p.m.
till 9 p.m.
Sometimes I wonder, "Why?".
What ever possessed me to
endure that kind of physical en-
durance in the Ft. Myers heat of
August remains a mystery to me
yet today!
There are lessons that I learned
on the practice field that apply to
life. .
One is understanding the prin-
ciples of temnptation. .
Let me explain.
I recall one day how a coach
was particularly upset that no de-
fensive player was able to brnn8
down a new young-buck running
back. '
About the time we would get
into position to wrap our arms
around him, he would bob-and-
weave his head and/or feet in
such a way that the only thing we
were grabbing was the dust he
left us in as he pranced himself to
the goal line.
Finally after about an hour of
this foolishness, the coach threw
his clipboard to the ground and
grabbed several of us by the face
mask and shouted, "Stop looking
at his eyes or his feet and start
watching his belly-button!
Wherever he goes, that will al-
ways be in the middle of his body.
Go for that!"
It was amazing what hap-
pened the rest of the afternoon.
It -took some time to adjust our
thinking.
Before long, however, every-
one began to notice the coach
was right!
The more we shifted our focus
from the head and the feet of the
hot-shot running back and began
to zero in on his mid-section, the
easier it became to bring him
down.
Suddenly the young-buck
wasn't "Mr. Touchdown" after
all.
When you think about it, what
was true that afternoon with the
"belly-button-lesson" is also true
for the believer today.
We all need a method to han-
die temptation.
If the follower of Christ is to
not get overrun by temptation
routinely, a new tactic has to be
implemented.
We have to go right for the
mid-section of the devil and bring
him down!
The temptation experience of
Christ is recorded in Scripture for

students were entertained with
a hilarious old time vaudeville
show called "Comedy with a
Twist of Lemon." The students
and teachers at Eastside were
captivated by magic, juggling,
ribbon dance, and tightrope
walkers presented by Barna-
bus B. Lemon's family. Students
used their imaginations as ev-


eryone wondered "How did
he do that?" Fantasy Theatre is
provided through a grant spon-
sored by the Department of Edu-
cation. Their goal is to enhance
cultural experiences to students
in Clewiston, who may not have
the opportunity to attend theatri-

The performances are integrated
with the academic curriculum.

Happy Chinese New Year, or
more appropriately, Gung Hay Fat
Choy.
The traditional Chinese New
Year greeting. Clewiston Cub
Scout Pack 667 held their Blue
and Gold Chinese New Year ban-
quet on Saturday, Feb. 23.
The scouts welcomed the Chi-
nese year 4706 and celebrated
with a dragon parade, paper lan-
terns, fortune cookies, chinese
food, chopsticks, and oranges for
abundant joy.
The blue and gold banquet
was decorated with banners and
columns inscribed with Chinese
characters for luck and lots of red
-the symbol of a bright and sunny
fturewas a family affair that
brought the entire scout family
together'in an evening of celebra-
tion for the packs accomplish-
ments.
A special thank-you to Mr.
Frank Mraz, Mr. Eivin Manges and
Mr. Tony Chih~ocky for attending.
Cub scouts performed a Chinese
dragon parade and were recog-
nized for their hard work in earn-
ing their achievements. Scouts
earned their Language and Cul-
ture belt loop as they learned and
enjoyed the culture of China. They
earned their blue and gold patch
and their patch for the Chinese
New Year theme. In addition,
scouts in the pack earned their
Good Turn for America patch and
2007 year segment.
The boys worked hard in
their 'Scouting for Food' drive
and collected approximately 300
pounds of non-perishable goods.
Mr. Elvin Manges representive of
Gulfstream Council North area
presented the pack with the Na-
tional Summertime Pack Award

district

(runs batted in) and two home
runs all team highs.
The well-disciplined baseball
athlete also has help from the
likes of Mason Cole, Dillon Irey
and Miguel Romero all three of
them have batting averages of
.300 or above.
Overall, if one looks at the Ti-
gers while they play, it seems like
much discipline was instilled in
each of the players. Johnston attri-
butes that to his policy of making
sure the players conduct them-
selves well on and pff the field.
"I want the boys to be model
citizens," Johnston said. "If they
behave in school and in the com-
munity, then the wins will take
care of themselves."
All of that could bode well
for the Tigers as they compete in
the quarterfinals of district play'
which began on April 22.
The' District 11-4A~ champion
will be determined on April 25.
The teams in Clewiston's dis-
trict are Riverdale, E~stero, South
Fort Myers, Cypress Lakes, Lem-
on Bay, LaBelle and Gateway
Charter.
The district tournament, which
will feature all of these teams, will
be played at Estero High School
in Fort M ers.

reached atntobtas @newuszap.com.

in it' aw the payof lu g
b ball.
aFeor the Clewiston Tigers base-
ball team, winning the District
11-4A tournament would be a
big accomplishment and a step
toward the opportunity to win the
Class 4A state championship. The
last time Clewiston even reached
the state Final Four was in 1978 -
exactly 30 years ago.
But Vance Johnston, the sixth-
year head coach, knows better
that to just look for the big prize
ahead. He likes his team to focus
on one game at a time and be
prepared as best as possible for
competition. *
One thing that the Tigers could
depend on in the district playoffs
is their pitching, led by Isandro
Marquez and Nick Raiola. Both
are considered great team lead-
ers as their earned run averages
(ERAs) are 3.08 and 1.96, respec-
tively.
Not only that, these two highly
regarded pitchers have put Clewis-
ton in good position to win many
of their games, even though the
Tigers finished the regular season
with an 8-10 record.

game. We've been working hard
to improve our hitting, but we've
got to hit our stride by the time
we start our district playoffs."
If any player could put the
team on his back, it's Marquez
because not only is he a well-re-
garded pitcher, he's a dangerous
hitter as well.
So far, Marqluez has posted a

out Pahokee's Ruth Ann Kinglocke
in the girls 100-meter final with a
time of 12.43 seconds. Kinglocke,
who defeated her once before in
the event at the Lake Worth track
meet, finished second with a time
of 12.44 a .01 second differren-
tial.
Kinglocke was the only Lady
Blue Devil to qualify for the state
meet in the individual events.
Brown finished third overall
in the girls 200-meter final with
a time of 25.09 seconds, behind
Pope John Paul's Jaybria Calcote
(24.62 seconds) and Pompano
Beach's Raneisha Lamar (24.92
seconds) .
The Lady Raiders 4X100 relay
team won the regionals with a
time of 49.16 seconds, while the
Lady Blue Devils finished fourth
with a time of 50.46 seconds.
Both relay teams qualified for the
state meet.
Lady Raiders senior Willisha
Wils~r' finished third fii the triple
jump (35-2), while seniors Na-
shay Joseph and Deasha Everett
finished first and second in the
shotput with throws of 36-7.5 and
36-6, respectively. All three will
be competing for the gold medal
on Saturday in their individual
events.
"I just feel great, I'm almost
speechless," said Jemeaul Caln~ek,
the Lady Raiders track coach. "I
felt like we could win regionals,
but we still had to do it.
~"We proved we're the best
team in South Florida and nlow
we get to show that we could be
have a hand at being the best in
the state."
The Lady Raiders finished with
94 points, a comfortable margin
over Cardinal Gibbons, who was
the regional runner-up with 78
points. The Lady Blue Devils were
in 12th place with 19 points.

Boys' results' at the
FegionalS
The Glades Central boys track
team, however, finished as the
regional runner-up as the Miami-
Belen Jesuit track team won this
event for the second consecutive
year. Belen Jesuit won its first ever
Class 2A state track championship
last year, edging out Glades Cen-
tral last year's state runner-up.
Belen Jesuit cruised to a 118


point win over 20 other teams
in attendance, including Glades
Central and Pahokee. The Raiders
finished with 88 points, while the
Pahokee boys team finished tied
for 13th with 17 points.
It proved to be a somewhat
rough going for the Raiders boys
team as senior Brunarious Mck-
ever qualified for the state meet
in the 300-meter hurdles race,
but not the 100-meter hurdles. He
finished second overall in the 300-
meter hurdles with a tirne of 39.22
seconds and finished fifth overall
with a time of 15.54 seconds.
What probably was the most
disappointing for the Raiders was
that in the hotly contested 800-
meter race, neither Patrick Bill-
ings nor Mychael Hollis qualified
for the state championship in the
event. Billings finished fifth with
a time of 2:03.36, with Hollis in
sixth place at 2:03.66.
It was expected that both
would have an excellent stagt at
winning the state title, bu't ihex
perience may have done them in
with the top four 800-meter run-
ners boxing them out of the run-
ning.
There were quite a few bright
spots for the Raiders, however.
Travis Benjamin qualified for the
state meet in the 100-meter race
and the long jump. He finished
second at 10.79 seconds and was
the regional champion in the long
jump at 22-5.5.
Glades Central's Demetrius
Evans qualified in the high jump,
finishing fourth at 6-2 and Rantav-
lous Wooten qualified in the 200-
meter race as he finished third
with a time of 22.35 seconds.
"The girls have come a long
way, they have a chance to win
state," said Willie C. McDonald,
the Raiders boys track coach.
"We didn't put ourselves in posi-
tion to win the regionals. Many of
the guys did good, but they made
some honest mistakes. The expe-
rience that the young guys went
through this season, they'll ab-
solve it and grow from it."
Neither did Pahokee, espe-
cially when the 4Xl00 relay team
was knocked out of the running
for the Class 2A state champion-
ship last Friday.
The team's ultimate goal fell
short in the 4X100 preliminary
race after a less-than-successful


baton exchange from Artis Ford
to Martavious Odoms.
In perhaps the most dramatic
scene of the track season, Ford
(the third leg) tripped into Odoms'
right leg as they tried to qualify
for the finals. It was -caused by
a collision between Odoms and
Derrick Hopkins, the third leg of
the Miami-Monsignor Pace 4X100
team.
Pace track coach Greg Barnes
believed that Odoms was in their
lane just before the collision Pa-
hokee was in lane five, Pace was
in lane four,
"Pahokee was in our lane, so
when our third leg (Hopkins) was
coming around to the final ex-
change, he ran into Pahokee's an-
chor leg (Odoms)," Barnes said
"What Pahokee did had an
effect on our exchange," Barnes
continued. "Our third leg (Hop-
kins) almost fell when he ran into
Pahokee's fourth leg (Odoms).
But we got our.had~'oll exchange i
clean and finished the race."
Pace qualified for the 4X100
final, finishing second in the race,
while Pahokee finished fifth. The
top four teams qualify for the fi-
nal.
"I'm not really worried about
it, there's nothing I can do," said
Emmanuel Hendricks, the Blue
Devils track coach. "Our third
leg (Ford) ran into our fourth leg
(Odoms) and caused Martavious
to fall. The fact of the matter is
that Miami-Pace didn't want to
see us in the finals. Third place
don't look good in Miami ifyou're
a Miami team. They didn't want
to see Glades Central and Paho-
kee in the 4X100 relay final."
Pace went onto win the 4X100
final with a time of 41.04 seconds,
edging out Glades Central 4X100
team (41.06 best team time
since 1992).
Both Glades Central and Paho-
kee qualified for the state meet in
the 4X400 relay, finishing second
and fourth, respectively.
Pahokee's Micanor Regis
qualified in the shotput, finishing
second with a throw of 50-9 and
Glades Central's 4X800 will be in
the state finals after finishing sec-
ond overall with a season best
time of 8:20.79.
The top four finishers in each
event qualified for the Class 2A
state meet at Winter Park.


Glades Central'S

boys' team finisheS
as runner-up

By Naji Toblas
INI Florida
MIAMI It was a track meet
that won't' soon be forgotten, to
say the least.
The Lady Raiders won the
Class 2A Region 4 regional track
meet on April 18 at Miami-Belen
Jesuit High School in convincing
fashion as they outlasted 25 other
teams in attendance, including
the Pahokee Lady Blue Devils.
The Glades Central Raiders
girls track team are now only one
step away fr~om their ultimate
goal a state championship.
What's amazing is that the
girls have won all but one.of their
track meets for the entire season
-something that not many saw
Scomihng.
Those team victories include
the April 10 District 13-2A meet at
Glades Central High School, the
April 3 Palm Beach County Meet
at Dwyer High School and the
March 27 West Conference Meet
in Royal Palm Beach.
"We can't win county, confer-
ence and district and not win the
regionals," said Vanessa Anthony,
the regional champion in the 300
meter hurdles race and runner-
up in the 100-meter hurdles race.
"We would be like the Patriots. It
ain't worlang with us."
Anthony won the girls 300-
meter hurdles final with a laser-
recorded time of 44.81, while
her teammate, Martha Jaimes,
finished third with a time of
47.19 seconds. Both qualified
for the.Class 2A state champion-
ship meet on Saturday, April 25 at
Winter Park.
The girls 300-meter hurdles
champion was edged out in the
100-meter hurdles final by Pine
Crest's Chelsea Lunn. Lunn's win-
ming time was 15.56 seconds and
An~thony's was 15.59 seconds a
.03 second differential.
Also making a big showing at
the regional meet was Lady Raid-
ers sprinter Vionni Brown, who
qualified for the state meet in the
100- and 200-meter races.
in perhaps the most competi-
tive race of the day, Brown edged

"It's just so hard right now,"
Ms. Edwards said, trying to hold
back tears.. "Carl never smoke,
drank, nothing. He was such a
good son and he wasn't just a
son, but he was one of my best
friends. It's horrible to know
somebody could murder him
cold-blooded like that."
Farrell Edwards, who also
works at Wilkinson Produce, de-
scribed his brother as an easy-go-
ing type who never had anything


negative to say' about anyone. .
"Jeff was my best friend," Far-
rell said. "It was job and home for
him. He was about taking care of
his brother and family. We need
these murders to end in Belle
Glade now and get some closure
here."
Investigators hope they can
generate new leads in the unsolved
murder and hope that someone
