What is an Inguinal Hernia? Could you have one?


By Dr. Dayares Mobed
HRMC General Surgeon
Most people have known or
heard about someone who has
had hernia surgery.
Hernia surgeries are the most
common surgeries performed
today.
Would you be able to recog-
nize a hernia or be familiar with
the signs and symptoms caused
by a hernia?
What is a hernia?
A hernia, in general terms, is a
weakness or tear, by nature or iat-
rogenic (induced), causing pro-
trusion of bowel and fat through
the weakness.
Hernias are classified by their,
location.
They can occur at all ages,,
and can be congenital (noticed at
birth) or developed later in life.
What is an inguinal hernia? An
inguinal hernia is an abnormal
bulge or protrusion that develops
in the groin area (between the ab-
domen and the thigh).
This type of hernia is by far the
most common hernia.
A mother may notice swelling

in her infant son's scrotum, when
her baby is crying; this is a typical
example of an infant hernia.
An inguinal hernia can also
develop when a portion of an in-
ternal organ such as the intestine,
alongwith fluid, bulges through
a weakened area in the muscle
wall of the abdomen.


Who is at risk for an inguinal
hernia?
There are certain risk factors,
which may predispose a person
to an inguinal hernia.
Though some patients do not
fall into these categories, the most
common risk factors include:

*Gender Inguinal hernias
are more common in males than
in females.

*Prostate enlargement Pros-
tate enlargement can cause strain-
ing during urination.

*Family history Your risk of
inguinal hernia increases if you
have a close relative, such as a
parent or sibling, with the condi-
tion.

*Certain medical conditions -
Having cystic fibrosis, a life-threat-
ening disorder that causes severe
lung damage and often a chronic
cough.

*Chronic cough from smok-
ing- A chronic cough, such as one


which occurs from smoking.

*Chronic constipation This
leads to straining during bowel
movements a common cause
of inguinal hernias.

*Excess weight Being mod-
erately to severely overweight can
put extra pressure on your abdo-
men.

*Multiple Pregnancies Mul-
tiple pregnancies can weaken the
abdominal muscles and cause
increased pressure inside your
abdomen.

*Certain occupations Having
a job that-requires standing for
long periods or doing heavy lift-
ing and physical labor increases
your risk.
*Premature birth Infants who
are born sooner than normal.

*History of prior hernia sur-
geries If you've had one inguinal
hernia, it's much more likely that
you'll eventually develop another


one usually on the opposite
side.
What are the symptoms of in-
guinal hernia?
Inguinal hernias are charac-
terized by pain or a bulge in the
groin area when coughing, sneez-
ing, lifting or straining.
The swelling may be reduced
or even disappear when lying
down. In an infant, the hernia is
noticed as a swelling in the scro-
fum, when the baby is crying.
How is an inguinal hernia
treated?
There are various methods
and timings for hernia treatment
or repair.
If the hernia can be reduced or
pushed back and the symptoms
disappear, the surgery can be per-
formed electively.
If the hernia continues to be
painful and cannot be. reduced,
there is a potential for bowel
strangulation, and hernia surgery
becomes an emergency.
Hernia repair in an infant or
child is done by surgically clos-
ing the defect of the hernia. In an
adult, however, a synthetic inert


mesh is overlaid on the defect for
a stronger repair.
Inguinal hernia surgery can
be performed by a small incision
in the groin or laparoscopically
through multiple tiny incisions
and the use of a camera.
Recovering from surgery -
Hernia surgeries are performed
on an outpatient basis, whereby
the patient is able to walk soon
after the procedure.
There are no dietary restric-
tions, and patients can resume
their regular activities within a
few days.
An inguinal hernia is one of
the many types of hernias. Other
types include: femoral, ventral,
umbilical; hiatal, and intra-ab-
dominal hernias. I will elaborate
on these types of hernias at a later
date.

RAK blesses Palm Terrace
The Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Club started off the new
year with a project to bless the residents of Palm Terrace Nurs-
ing Home. This past week the RAK Club members got together to
cut out and paint designs on 16 lap blankets of various colors and
sizes. The students worked together to add words of encourage-
ment and pretty pictures to each of the fleece blankets. Addition-
ally, some students made bird feeders out of pine cones covered
with peanut butter and bird seed for placement in the patio areas
of the nursing home.
After school on Friday, an entourage which included 24 students
and six parent chaperones made the presentation to the staff at
Palm Terrace. The students personally presented their handmade
gifts and then were given a brief tour of the facility.

Women take action against cervical cancer


INI Florida The Florida De-
partment of Health (DOH) has
recognized January as Cervical
Health Awareness Month, a time
to educate, encourage and em-
power women to visit their health
care provider for information and
screening for cervical cancer.
"Because approximately half
of all cervical cancers occur in
women who have never been
screened, screening is particu-
larly important in these women
or women who have rarely been
screened," said Susan Fleming,
DOH Cancer Program Adminis-
trator. "By taking action, you can
reduce your cancer risk."
Cervical cancer once claimed
the lives of more American wom-
en than any other type of cancer
but is now nearly 100% prevent-
able and treatable with timely
interventions. Over the last 40
years, widespread cervical can-
cer screening using the Pap test
and treatment of pre-cancerous
cervical conditions have resulted
in a marked reduction of the inci-
dence and deaths due to cervical
cancer in the United States.
Approximately 99 percent of
cervical cancer is attributed to
a virus known as human papil-
lomavirus (HPV). The virus is
spread through sexual contact,
and women can be infected with
HPV and not know it. A new HPV
vaccine prevents some types of
cervical cancer. This immuniza-
tion may reduce the incidence of
cervical cancer even more.over
time.


Ways to prevent or treat cervi-
cal cancer include:
. Have regular Pap tests which
can find early cell changes in the
cervix.
Females should start getting
regular Pap tests about three years
after they begin sexual activity. All
women should have a Pap test by
the age of 21 regardless of sexual
activity.
Follow up promptly on any ab-
normal Pap test results.
Discuss HPV vaccinations with
your health care provider Stud-
ies also suggest that smoking, a
weakened immune system, and
multiple sexual partners increases
your risk of cervical cancer.
In Florida during 2005, 910
new cases of cervical cancer
were diagnosed, and 291 Florid-
ians died of cervical cancer. The
number of cases and deaths are
higher in Florida than many other
states.
DOH promotes, protects and
improves the health of all people
in Florida. The DOH Breast and
Cervical Cancer Early Detection
Program is available statewide.
This program provides assistance
to women ages 50-64, who are
uninsured and are at or below
200 percent of the federal pov-
erty level. By offering information
and support, as well as the critical
screening services that women
need, the program has helped
to remove barriers that prevent
women from being screened.
Since the program began, over
44,189 women have received Pap

A Historical Perspective on Spanish Florida


Missions in South
Florida

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The lone, scholarly priest stood
at the edge of the lagoon, staring
across the sparkling, tropical wa-
ters until sea and sky merged as
one on the blue horizon.
The gaze remained fixed for
several minutes, as his mind
and. spirit breached all earthly
obstacles and rose to terrestrial
heights.
The heavenly journey eluded
him when a slight noise awak-
ened him to a beautiful, but cruel
world.
The dreamy, sedated look
was replaced with an anguished
expression that crept across his
face.
Ocean borne winds had car-
ried the strange, muffled sound
across the water's edge, alerting
him to danger.
Tranquil eyes recoiled in hor-
ror at the sight of.murderous men
emerging from dugouts, moving
swiftly to block his escape route
to the fort.
He stood mesmerized, para-
lyzed by a cold, ruthless fear that
coiled around his body, rendering,
him immobile.
The dreadful shock was brief,
and primeval instincts overpow-
ered the fear.


In seconds, a will to live fo-
cused his entire being on the fort,
so close and yet so far.
Arms flew and legs raced, kick-
ing up puffs of sand as he sprinted
for his life.
Cries of anger echoed across
the Island, when the Indians real-
ized he was escaping.
Entering the fort, he collapsed
in a daze, gasping for air, while
alerted soldiers manned the fort
walls.
This fictitious tall tale reveals
the harsh life that men of the cloth
endured in "La Florida."
It is time to take "A Walk in
The Past" and read about the
early Spanish missions in south
Florida.
In 1566, Pedro Menendez de
Aviles, the newly appointed gov-
ernor of Florida, met with King
Carlos, the Calusa cacique, in the
province of Calus.
He rescued our ole friend Fon-
tanedo, several female mestizoes
(Indian and European mix) and
one female black.
Menendez negotiated and es-
tablished a temporary, peace be-
tween the Spanish and Calusa,
but it came at a high price.
Carlos demanded he marry
his sister, and Menendez capitu-
lated to his demands because he
hoped the marriage would help
consolidate a peaceful truce.
He returned to Cuba with his
bride and the castaways.
The marriage was only a politi-


cal arrangement, so he made ar-
rangements for her to get housing
and religious training.
Menendez didn't return im-
mediately, but sent an expedition,
under the command of Captain
Reinoso, to build a fort and set-
tlement at King Carlos's village,
called St. Anthony, near present
day Charlotte Harbor.
Captain Reinoso was also
instructed to explore Lake
Mayaimis, knowfi today as Lake
Okeechobee.
Menendez was hoping there
was a natural waterway crossing
south Florida, so that ships could
avoid the treacherous Florida
Straits.
In 1567, Menendez returned to
the province of Calus and found
an unhappy alliance between the
Spanish and Calusa.
The truce was further threat-
ened when Menendez insisted
that king Carlos make peace with
the Calusa's long time enemies,
the Tocobaga Indians of Tampa
Bay.
The real threat to peace came
from a Jesuit priest called Father
Juan Rogel.
King Phillip II had requested
priests for "La Florida," and Me-
nendez complied.
Father Rogel told the Calusa
Indians that it was wrong to wor-
ship graven images and practice
polygamy,
Centuries of tradition and reli-
gion were now being challenged


by a strnge Spaniard and a
stranger religion.
King Carlos and the Calusa
people were furious when told
they must give up their idols.
The Calusa men got down
right testy when told they could
have only one wife.
Tensions were running high
between the Spaniards and Indi-
ans, so Menendez relocated the
fort to a neighboring island before
he returned to Cuba.
Casique Carlos's hate for the
Jesuit priest increased. Father.Ro-
gel wrote in his journal, "Carlos
had a great hate against me es-
pecially because I discredited and
spoke evil about his idols.
"I did not go out more than
once each day for a thing that
could not be avoided and did not
go further than a stone's throw
from the fort."
Father Rogel wasn't winning
souls and feared his own might
soon soar from its earthly bonds.
He had lived at the fort for one
month, when a ship arrived with
supplies.
The ship's captain told Father
Rogel that the Spanish garrison
at Tampa Bay was in dire need of
supplies.
Father Rogel elected to return
to Cuba and help organize relief
for the beleaguered garrison.
Captain Reinoso reportedly
discovered (three days after Fa-
ther Rogel took leave for Cuba)
that Cacique Carlos was plotting


to massacre the Spanish.
S, The Spaniards claimed some
of the Calusa weren't happy with
Cacique Carlos and divulged his
plan to them.
Reinoso invited Carlos to the
fort.
Carlos came with two village
headmen, and Reinoso executed
all three.
The Spaniards selected a Calu-
sa rebel leader called Felipe to be
the next Cacique.
Felipe was a high ranking Calu-
sa, who claimed that he was the
rightful heir to the title Cacique.
The Spaniards' reported that
the transfer of Calusa power to
Casique Felipe made life easier
for them.
Cacique Felipe experienced a
harder transition. Several Calusa
chiefs were unhappy with his cor-
onation.and made new alliances
with the Togobagos Indians.
Apparently, no one was happy
with the new Cacique except the
Spaniards.
Captain Reinoso took a short.
visit to Cuba in 1567, and returned
to find Cacique Felipe holding a
celebration.
Cacique Felipe's followers
were dancing with the heads
of four beheaded Calusa Indian
leaders that disapproved Cacique
Felipe's new title.
During his reign, Felipe killed
more than 15 Calusa leaders to
protect his position and life.
Captain Reinoso knew his


decision to appoint, Felipe as the
new Cacique wasn't popular with
the Calusa.
He said, "Because matters in
that province have come to such
a pass and have been so disposed
that the reign and life of that caci-
que depends on the Christians not
withdrawing their support from
him because he is so disliked by
so many caciques and captains
among his yassals that, were it
not for the favor and support that
he enjoys among the Christians,
they would have killed him quite
a while ago."
There will be more "Tale
Tales" in next week's edition "A
Walk in The Past" when Spanish
missions and priest clash with.the
Calusa culture.

Annual National Signing Day coming on February 4


Well over 15 area
seniors set to commit
on Super Wednesday

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION In just
six days, a slew of high school
football athletes will sign their let-
ters of intent.
Known as National Signing
Day, four of five area school will
be set to participate in this extrav-
aganza.
Unfortunately for Moore Ha-
ven none of its seniors have been
offered by colleges as of yei.
Savior Fagan, who, according
to 'MaxPreps.com, led the state
with 1,117 receiving yards to
end the regular season last year,
surprisingly has only a few small
schools even taking a look at him
at this time.
Jason Bond,'the Terriers head
coach, was tight lipped on what
those schools were.
Hopefully, Fagan and his. fel-
low outgoing seniors can pick
up offers at some point down the
line.
That's not bad news at all, giv-
en the fact that some of the Class
of 2008's best athletes received
exactly zero offers before signing
day.
.One could look no\further than
Kardell Dunning, who graduated
from Glades Central High School
in 2008.
Arguably one of the best cor-
nerbacks in the state during his
senior season, Dunning didn't
receive any offers before the big
day,
Nevertheless, his patience
more than paid off when last
spring, Michigan and Louisville
were fighting hard for his ser-
vices.
Thanks to Henry Cook, Glades
Central's athletic director, Duri-
ning's game film was put on You-
Tube and Rivals.com, generating
thousands of hits.
It did happen after signing day,
but the premise of all that is just
one thing.
Colleges will find a. talented
athlete, no matter what it takes.
After taking visits to Louisville
and Michigan during the spring,
Dunning was amazed by how the
college coaches treated him.
But in the end, Dunning chose
Louisville over Michigan partly
because he was promised an op-
portunity to start at cornerback
there.
Dunning, working .his way
into Louisville's starting rotation,
made the possibility a reality,
when he made his debut against
West Virginia last season.
Firmly poised to make a big-
ger impact for the Cardinals in
his next three seasons, Dunning
may be able to look at the disap-
pointment and use it as a prime
,opportunity to make it to the NFL,
possibly in 2012.
Big day ahead at Glades
Central
It could be argued that almost
all of the excitement on Super
Wednesday will come from
Glades Central.
Given the fact that no less than
20 Division I-caliber athletes are
on the team, only three of them
seem firmly committed to their


college choices at this time.
During this time last year, Ri-
vals.com four-star offensive line-
man Henry Orelus committed to
LSU, which seemingly ended any
suspense for the prospect.
But in the.summer, Orelus, for
reasons unknown, de-committed
from LSU and switched to Florida
State University.
It's a known fact that players
are only orally committed un-
til signing day, so making a de-
commit will not bring any conse-
quences for a college prospect in
question.
This also applied for fellow
teammate Rantavious Wooten,
a Rivals.com four-star wideout
"' who's rated as the No. 30 overall
player in the state.
While Wooten announced his
oral commitment to LSU just
hours before Glades Central's
Aug. 29 Kickoff Classic game
against Dillard -:he later switched
his allegiance to the University of
Georgia.
Again, it's not uncommon for
a top flight athlete to do such a
thing,
In the end, Wooten, Orelus
and others are just making sure
that they're making the best col-
lege decision for them.
That's too bad for LSU, who
just lost two of the nation's top
prospects.
Outgoing senior James Melton,
a backup running back to fellow
classmate Antonio McCloude,
quietly made his college commit-
ment to Alabama State University
back in the fall.
Though it was Melton's only
official offer, he quickly accepted
the scholarship and hasn't looked
back since.
Quite a few other Glades Cen-
tral seniors have a great chance
of signing letters of intent next
Wednesday.
..It won't be a surprise if these
athletes' make official commit-
ments on Feb. 4:
Antonio McCloude
Rupert Bryan
Jim Knowles
Vincent Harper
Emmanuel Rackard
Robert Ferguson
Artavious Dowdell
Cartavious Baldwin
There could be even more
Glades Central signees, though it
.won't be absolutely certain until
the big day.
Clewiston and Glades
Day seem set
Over at Tiger Country, it's
looking like there will be just one
player on track to sign the papers
next week.
Joe Roth, Clewiston's head
coach, said Darris Hughes, the
Tigers first ever 2,000-yard rusher,
will likely commit to Georgia State
University.
It's actually surprising that
Hughes had just one offer, consid-
ering the record-breaking season
he had.
With that being said, the
Clewiston coaching staff took
a deliberate approach in how
they'll showcase their seniors to
colleges nationwide.
Hard at work since the Oct. 17
bye week, Roth and his coaches
started taking the time out to
make game film for each of their
seniors.
The coaching staff, assigned to


conduct searches on each college
from Division. II, III and JUCO
(junior college), has recently
sent off tapes, hoping that
more outgoing seniors can obtain
offers down the line.
"The kids have worked very
hard for me all season long," Roth
said.
"Now, it's my time to pay them
back, I owe it to them."
As for Glades Day, it looks to
be busier than last year.
Jimbo Arnold, who currently
plays for Troy University, was the
only one who committed on sign-
ing day.
Jarrett Swaby (UCF) has left
for college earlier this month,
while Bo' Schlecter recently made
an oral commitment to Georgia
State.
If everything goes as planned,
Hughes and Schlecter will be
teammates at Georgia State in the
future.
Interestingly, Georgia State will
not be fielding a football team un-
til the 2010 season.
In essence, academics will be
the key focus for both of them as
they become college freshmen.
De'Andres Jackson, who
scored a 29 on his ACT exam
and has a 3.5 grade point average
(GPA), received several college
offers to date.
'The all-around athlete, who
took a college visit to Georgetown
University earlier this month, has
also been offered by Brown Uni-
versity and Air Force, among oth-
ers.
No one will know where Jack-
son will go until signing.day.
Cody Dionne and Josh Cuth-
bert are the two others who may
officially commit for Glades Day
next week.
"Any college will be happy that
they land kids of their caliber,"
Glades Day Gators coach Pete
Walker said of his seniors.
"All of them are great athletes
and are men of character."
Pahokee prospects are
already set
Brandin Hawthorne and
Vincent Smith, both Michigan
commits, will sign their letter of
intents in Ann Arbor, Mich., ac-
cording to Pahokee head coach
Blaze Thompson.
The duo made their oral com-
mitments on Aug. 29, just one day
before their Kickoff Classic game
against Olive Branch, Miss.
The fateful news conference,
along with Nu'Keese Richardson
May 29 commitment to ,Florida,
proved to be among the state's
most exciting college announce-
ments in recent memory.
Later in the fall; Jacquan Bent-
ley, the Blue Devils former center,
made a commitment to Alabama
St.
Bentley will be joining Melton
as teammates for the next, four
years, making for what's yet an-
other Glades' Central-Pahokee
connection in college.
That's somewhat akin to what
Deonte Thompson (Glades Cen-
tral) and Janoris Jenkins (Paho-
kee) accomplished, as both cur-
rently play for national champion
Florida.
Jarvis Byrd, a four-star corner-
back who is Rivals.com's No. 41
player in the state, committed to
North Carolina State in the fall, as
well.


After taking a visit there re-
cently, he reportedly liked the
campus so much, that not even
offers from Wake Forest or Flori-
da State will change his mind.
Carlos Lammons, a defensive
back, recently announced that
he'll be going to the University of
Buffalo.
That leaves Willie Hickman,
who may choose Florida Atlantic
University next week as he con-
tinues to play cornerback on the
next level.
S"There are a number of boys
that should be going to Division


I, but scholarship offers haven't
come in yet," Thompson said of
the remaining seniors.
Considering the fact that Pa-
hokee had 26 seniors on the 2008
team, it's somewhat surprising
that players such as Dexter Hol-
mes, Fontaine Hopson, Curtis
Daley, Tim Baker and Donald
Hester haven't been given a seri-
ous look.
As. for Richardson, he'll likely
join Byrd, Lammons, Hickman
and Bentley on.the signing ta-
ble next week at Pahokee High
School.


The All-American, unfortu-
nately, didn't leave for Florida as
previously planned.
"Most people still have to fin-
ish the year out and get cleared to
go to college," Thompson said.
"It just didn't happen for
Nu'Keese yet."
When it's all said and done,
Thompson seems firmly set on
what's to come next week.
"We're trying to get every-
body offers, but the reality is that
the ones who had offers already
will be signing," Thompson said.

Eat the frog first thing in the morning


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A minister wrote in his weekly
column in the church newsletter
that he was setting goals for the
new year.
One of his goals was to clean
up his desk. Another of his goals
was to find last year's goals.
Someone once shared, "Life
is not measured by the number
of breaths we take, but by the
moments that take our breath
away."
The problem is that many of
us get so busy taking breaths that
we miss out on breath taking mo-
ments.


Focusing on and organizing
parts of our jobs and life can help
us gain the time we need for those
special moments and people in
our live.
I recently received five strate-
gies that might help us make the
most of our time and thus the
most of our lives.
They're too good not to share.
First, "Eat the Frog."
Mark Twain said if you eat a
frog first thing in the morning that
will probably be the worst thing
you do all day.
So, if we start our day by tack-
ling an important task, especially
if it is a task we aren't crazy about,
then the worst will be behind us,


and we realize a sense of free-
dom.
Second, "Con-crastinate."
If pro-crastinafing means put-
ting things off, con-crastinating
should be doing things immedi-
ately.
Work in 15 minute increments.
If there is a task you don't like, set
a timer and do it for 15 minutes.
At the end of 15 minutes, you
will be amazed at how much
you've' accomplished.
At that point, either stop or if
you have built up some momen-
tum, keep going.
Third, nix the multi-tasking.
We pride ourselves on being able
to do two, three, or four things at


once, and that is fine if the activi-
ties are fairly simple, like stuffing
envelopes while on a conference
call or eating lunch while reading
e-mail.
But if at least one of the tasks
is more complicated, like putting
together a PowerPoint presenta-
tion or writing a report, then it
deserves our full attention. ,
We would be best served to
set aside a period of time that we
can devote to that one task with-
out interruption.
People tend to make fewer
mistakes and get more done in
less time when they do this.
Fourth, "Buddy Up."
We don't always have to do


everything ourselves. Many hands
make light work and share the
load.
In addition, the support and
companionship is an added bless-
ing that enables more work get
done in less amount of time.
Furthermore, science has
shown we need the equivalent
of 17 good'affirmations a day
through appropriate hugs, hand-
shakes, or verbal encourage-
ments in order to thrive.
We do that through teamwork
and connecting with people.
Fifth, plan it out.
A few minutes of planning can
save us hours of time. First thing
in the morning or at the end of the


day, take a few minutes to plan.
It doesn't have to be a long
formal process, all we need to
Sdo is just jot down the things we
want to do that day or the next.
It's amazing how much we can
accomplish when we do this.
Let me close with another
shared insight.
The key to a better life: Com-
plain less, appreciate more.
Whine less, laugh more.
Talk less, listen more. Want
less, give more.
Hate less, love more. Scold
less, praise more. Fear less, hope
more. Trust God, be blessed.


It is said that there are two roads to eternity


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Christ, who is all knowing, tells
us that many people are going to
be lost, but only few are going to
be saved.
In Matthew 7:13-14 He says,
"Enter by the narrow gate: for
wide is the gate, and broad is the
way, that leads to destruction,
and there are many who go in by
it. Because narrow is the gate and
difficult is the way which leads to
life, and there are few who find
it."


Now this gets my attention.
According to the Bible the major-
ity of people will be lost. We must
take this warning from God at
face value.
There'are only two roads to
eternity and we are on one or
the other. According to what the
Lord says, only few will make it to
Heaven, but the vast majority will
be lost in eternal punishment.
This is both frightening and
sad. I don't consider myself self-
ish, but I certainly want to be
among the few who are saved,
don't you?
We make the choice ourselves


as to where we will spend eterni-
ty. We are free moral agents. This
is how we differ from animals.
We have been made in the image
of God. Genesis 1:26 says, "Then
God said let Us make man in Our
image".
Also in Genesis 2:7 we read,
"And the Lord God formed man
of the dust of the ground, and
breathed into. his nostrils the
breath of life; and man became a
living soul."
Yes, we possess a soul that will
live forever in one of two places.
God does not want anyone to
be lost, but the choice is ours. In


II Peter 3:9 we read, "The Lord is
not slack concerning His promise,
as some count slackness, but is
long suffering toward us, not will-
ing that any should perish but that
all should come to repentance".
God does not want us to go
into eternal punishment. He is
not going to force us jo serve
Him, otherwise we would be
mere robots. I Timothy 2:4 says
concerning God, "Who desires all
men to be saved, and to come to
the knowledge of the truth."
It is God's will that all be saved,
but we know that is not going to
happen. We have already seen


that only few are going to be
saved and the majority are going
to be lost.
What is your eternal destiny?
If you miss Heaven, you will be
thrown into the eternal fires of
Hell.
One of the saddest things
about going to Hell is the fact that
it could have been avoided. The
majority of people will be lost in
spite of what the Lord has done.
A person who goes to Hell is
his own worst enemy. Hell is not
what God does to us, but Hell is
What we do to ourselves. If one
ends up in Hell, he only has him-


self to blame.
Also, as the verse says, before
we can be saved, we must "come
to the knowledge of the truth."
Jesus says in John 8:32 "And
ye shall know the truth, and the
truth shall make you free."
What is the truth that will make
us free? In John 17:17 Jesus says,
"Sanctify them by your truth.
Your word is truth." So the
word of God is the truth that will
make us free so that we can go to
Heaven."


The No "Domestic Violence Theory" of religion


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Jesus said "Small is the gate
and narrow is the road that leads
to life and only a few find it (Mat-
thew 7:14)."
Jesus also said "Take my yoke
upon you and learn from me, for
I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your
souls. For my yoke is easy and my
burden is light (Matthew 11:28-
30)."
Which is it?
The first passage is intimidat-
ing, fear-provoking, scary and
lrees people. wjh the idea that
- their geatest chaiice is they won't
make it.
The second says "Aha, the
Lord understands and we've got
a great shot at making it."
Thereare those who dwell on
the first passages and others like it
(usually drawing heavily from the
Old Testament without reading it
in a New Testament context.)
It's usually about scaring
people into "doing it my way, or
else!"
It as if a "God will get you"


attitude will bring people in and
teach them about God's love for
them.
There is no understanding of
God-given human nature. Can
you imagine scaring somebody
into loving you?
I guess this is a "domestic
violence theory" of religion! You
don't beat up on somebody until
they love you.
It lacks a respect for persons
as who they are, who God made
them to be with all of their imper-
fections and faults, in spite of their
"pushing your buttons, in spite of
their getting on your nerves, but
you love them anyway.
Thats.what Jesusu~derstood.,
This is Christian love, healing
love, the love that casts out fears.
Jesus healed ten lepers, only
one returns to give thanks (Luke
17;11ff).
Does He say to the other nine
"You're going to be sick again!"?
Of course not!
This is an outpouring act of
love with no expectation of return
and no threats that "God'll getcha
if you don't shape up.'
What is done is done selflessly
and with an understanding of

what may or may not come after-
ward.
Religion that harangues, belit-
tles, scares, makes veiled or not-
so-veiled threats doesn't show
any understanding or respect for
the human condition or what the
incarnation was all about.
Such an approach will have
some impact in the short run
but eventually will lead to people
turning off and ignoring what is
being said.
The gospel message is "What


can I do to help?" and then doing
it..
It is rooted in why the Lord
came in the first place; to save
and to heal.
One of the journals for clergy
shared an account of a minister
who preached "hellfire and dam-
nation' and had a young couple
come to him after they found
themselves in a difficult situation.
As he was berating and lec-
turing, he said that something
crossed his mind.

Task
Continued From Page 1

ingly have nothing better to do
with their time than to mark their
ground.
Sgt. Justin Spence is no strang-
er to it. That much is clear in the
fact that Sgt. Spence was one of
the responding officers to last
week's shooting at Twin Lakes in
Clewiston.
In. discussing the problem, he
does not mince words.
"We do have a heavy gang
problem in this area. It's a violent
problem and it's a problem that's
destroying ourjuveniles," he said.
"We're seeing a more steady in-
crease in gang activity, recruit-
ment and organization," said Sgt.
Spence. "These individuals are a
corrupt organization. They are out
to show that they are serious and
they're violent, and they mean.to
commit criminal acts."
Sgt. Spence is the chair of the
local chapter of the attorney gen-
eral's gang reduction task force,


a newly created board whose
mission is to stamp out gang ac-
tivity. The task force has separate
groups set up in Charlotte, Mana-
tee and Lee counties.
The group held its first meeting
earlier this month, outlining the
basic premise. Members hope to
identify the specific areas that will
be targeted within the next few
months, outlining specific goals
going forward.
It represents, according to the
sergeant, the first real chance lo-
cals have at eliminating an admit-
tedly nasty situation before it gets
any uglier.
Karson Turner, a Hendry
County commissioner, serves as
the co-chair.
"We have to change our vo-
cabulary," said Commissioner
Turner. "There is no such thing as
a want-to-be gangster. You either
recognize someone as a gang
member, or you do not."
The real turnaround will come
in the form of a multi-pronged at-
tack, they said. Yes, law enforce-
ment will be required to find and,
arrest the individuals involved in


the criminal organizations, but
so, too, will schools be required
to work more closely with law en-
forcement to stamp out and iden-
tify who those members are.
Attacking the issue simply from
a law enforcement standpoint
fails to address the root causes
of gangs in the community. Per-
haps incarceration alone will not
convince most of the criminals to
turn their lives around, members
of the group theorize.
"I hear adults in our commu-
nity say, 'There's nothing for our
young people to do.' Then what is
4-H? What is football, track, soc-
cer? There are so many programs
out there. We have to assess what
our problems are."
Commissioner Turner believes
that the more people who are
involved, the better the chances
that Hendry and Glades counties
can recover those teenagers who
have lost their way.
According to Sgt. Spence, it is
difficult to disrupt the gang sys-
tem when it is so ingrained in the
lives of the gang rhembers.
"We got gang members of all


different ages; they go from gen-
eration to generation," said Sgt.
Spence. "We have 11-year-olds
being supervised by parents who
are gang members, who are su-
pervised by their parents, who are
gang members.",
Members understood that
working closely with the neigh-
boring county of Glades County
opens up more avenues to suc-
cess. The two task forces have
joined and will be holding joint
meetings.
During the first meeting, the
task force noted the presence
of local health departments, lo-


cal representatives, and several
Glades County representatives. It
is a pool of knowledge the group
hopes to tap in coming up with
concrete solutions to the prob-
lems facing the community to-
day.
One of those answers is the
implementation of,a countywide
curfew for anyone under the age
of 18. Though the specifics of the
plan are not finalized, keeping
teenagers away from the streets
by 10 or 11 p.m. is a step in the
right direction, the sergeant and
commissioner agree.
Such a plan would have to be

Suspects charged for
burglary, credit card
fraud

By Jose Jesus: Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Had it not been
for an $8 hankering for fast food

Police made an arrest in a
credit card theft case after a bank
officials found that the card had
been used at the local Popeye's
Fried Chicken restaurant.
Wary cashiers there led police
to two suspects, who now face
credit card fraud charges.
Had it not been because the
credit card was declined when
the suspects couldn't come up
with the right pin number, depu-
ties may have never made an ar-
rest in the case.
The victim of the'crime said
her purse had been stolen from
the front seat of her vehicle on


Shooting

-- The incident happened on Fri-
day, Jan. 23.
Witnesses at Twin Lakes told
police that at least three subjects,
perhaps more, poured out of a
tan- or cream-colored Lincoln
Navigator, ambushing 20-year-
old victim Victor Najera, who was
standing in a yard at the time.
Investigators said that sev-
eral subjects shot at Najera, and
believe that one of the wayward
shots hit the second victim, Rich-
ardo Lara, in the left ankle.
Witnesses report seeing one ol
the suspects wielding a sawed-off

Jan. 21 in Harlem, according to
an arrest report released by the
:Hendry County Sheriff's Office.
The purse contained, along
with the victim's drivers license,
two debit cards and six credit
cards.
After calling her bank to cancel
the cards, the woman was told by
bank representatives that her card
had been used to make purchas-
es at Suzie B. Liquor Store, and
Popeye's.
Investigators talked to the em-
ployees of the restaurant.
S Cashiers there told deputies
that a man and woman at the
drive-thru window presented a
credit card to pay for an $8.55
meal they had placed.
When the card was rejected,
the suspects tried to enter a pin
number, but the card was again:
rejected.
Deputies were able to review
surveillance video of the transac-
Stion, and tracked one of the sus-
Spects, Jomeka Brown, 22. Brown

shotgun.
After the gunfire, the suspects
reportedly jumped back in the ve-
hicle and sped away.
Emergency workers arrived
shortly after the incident to treat
the two victims for injuries, trans-
porting them to the hospital due
to the severity of the wounds.
According to Lt. Susan Harrelle
with the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office, neither of the victims sus-
tained fatal injuries.
During the follow-up investiga-
tion, deputies learned that bullets
strayed .dangerously close to hit-
ting more subjects.
Bullets passed through the wall
of one home, passing through a
bedroom and becoming lodged


cated at the Civic Park right in the
middle of town.

Feb. 21 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.

whether she knew the second
suspect, Demaster Arthur, 28, she
told them she had not seen him'
all day.
Vwo minutes later, Arthur ex-
ited the residence. A check of his
criminal background revealed an
active warrant for probation vio-
lation, and he was placed under
arrest.
When presented with the ad-
ditional charges of burglary, theft
and fraud, Arthur reportedly told
deputies that he could "get the
purse back if he could use the
phone."
His mother took the purse and
its contents to the Clewiston sub-

Money to Lend


Although, it's hard to miss the bad news
about housing and mortgages these
days, it is actually one of the best times to
buy a home. Interest rates are the lowest
they've been in decades, home prices
are the lowest in years and Seacoast
National Bank is open for business
and making residential mortgage loans.

In fact, we've been in business for
over 80 years. We did not participate
in payment-option ARMs (adjustable
rate mortgages), sub-prime loans or
other 'exotic' mortgage loans you read
about today and which so many other
mortgage lenders are struggling with.
Instead, we sat out the irrational lending
frenzy and built our internal resources
to better serve our customers and home
buyers today and in the future.

ARM(ed) But Not Dangerous
The events of the last few years have
created 'the perception that all ARMs
(Adjustable Rate Mortgages) are
dangerous they're not. There are
times when an ARM is the right loan'
for the situation. For instance, a couple
purchasing a home that plans to sell and
upgrade in a few years would most likely
benefit from a shorter term ARM loan.
It's a matter of applying common sense
lending practices and selecting the right
loan to fit the needs of the borrower.'

New Lock & Shop Service
We recently introduced oui "Lock and
Shop" service at Seacoast that allows
prospective home buyers to be pre-
approved for a mortgage and lock in
the rate on an Adjustable Rate
Mortgage (ARM) at the time of

The. Ladies Auxiliary. to the

application for up to 90 days. You can
then shop for a home with the peace
of mind that the rate will not increase
while you shop. If rates go down before
you close on the loan, so does your rate.
You can also choose to change the loan
to a fixed rate option at closing.


Interest rates are the lowest
they've been in decades,
home prices are the lowest in years
and Seacoast National Bank
is open for business and making
residential mortgage loans.



Technology & Convenience
A common misconception is that an
online-only lender will save a home
buyer money. Although the Internet
is ideal for gathering information, the
drawbacks of working with an online-
only lender outweigh the advantages.
To, complement our loan services,
Seacoast has convenient online tools
for home buyers including a mortgage
calculator and application for those
who want online convenience. However
you choose to apply, local, dedicated
mortgage loan officers are available to
assist you with the application process
in person at your home or office, at a
Seacoast office or over the telephone.
Seacoast's professional mortgage
lenders are prepared to understand your
current economic and housing needs,'to
answer your questions and make quick
local decisions. We disclose all terms
and conditions up front, and provide
a single point of contact throughout
the process, so there are no surprises at
closing. Our promise to you is simple -
whether you apply online or in person,
there's nothing "mechanical" about the
way you'll be treated as a customer.
