Woman arrested


in bank robbery


Report: Suspect may
have used local
attorney's gun in the
act
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- As she spied
the young woman standing in
the pouring rain, that woman's
clothes now drenched completely,
the Seacoast Bank employee was
nervous.
The employee wanted to lock
the door, but bank policy is to
keep all doors open until 10 min-
utes after 4 p.m.
With only a few minutes left
until then, the employee walked


away.
That's all the time the suspect
would need.
She walked into the bank wear-
ing a ball cap and sunglasses, they
said, and carried a blue bag from
which she drew a handgun.
The suspect pointed the gun at
one of the three employees at the
bank at the time and asked them
to give her the money, accord-
ing to the report released by the
Clewiston Police Department.
The incident happened last
Wednesday, May 27.
Officers arriving on the scene at
300 South Berner Road spotted a
woman matching the description
of the suspect getting into a light
blue pick up truck at the post of-
fice.

Sheriff's Office
investigates
gruesome case
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON A shouting
match played out on Ridgdill
Road in Clewiston with nearby
residents rocked by the sound of
gunshots and speeding vehicles
and a vicious beating that left
one man dead on Saturday.
Investigators with the Hen-
dry County Sheriff's Office are
continuing to piece together the
events leading up to the deadly
encounter, and have made sev-
eral arrests in the case.
The names of some of the
suspects are being withheld at


the moment to maintain the in-
tegrity of the case, officials with
the sheriff's office said, but as
many as five may be implicated
in the case.
Witnesses tell police that just
before 6 p.m. that day, a white
Ford Expedition carrying at least
four occupants -- two of whom
witnesses said may have been
Johnathan Cavazos, 17, and
James Melton, 19 -- stopped in
front of a residence on Ridgdill
Road.
That's where the victim, Raul
Beraza, 27, of Montura, and the
occupants of the Expedition got
into a heated argument.
A short time later, the Expedi-
tion left the scene, but as Beraza
entered the residence to use the
restroom, shots were fired in

Creek Indians and The Hide Trade


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Large, limpid eyes searched the hidden
shadows of the woods for predators, while
alert ears and tails twitched in nervous an-
ticipation.
Sensing no threats, the restless deer herd
moved silently down a hidden trail that
passed under green canopies of moss coy
ered trees before eventually ending on the
fringes of a burnt and darkened forest.
Pockets of fog floated stubbornly above
the ground in grey blankets of mist, shield-
ing and hiding the lifeless landscape that was
strewn with fire ravaged trees and bushes.
The approaching deer paused momen-
tarily at the edge of the blackened waste-
land and smelled the sweet morning air for
danger, before emerging themselves into the
swirling thick clouds of watery vapor like
ghostly apparitions.
Great patches of succulent grasses rose
up from the scorched earth to greet the herd
of hungry deer.
Soon deer were spread thickly about the
charred grounds; hungrily feeding on the
tender blades of sprouting grass that sprang
up after the raging fires swept through the
forest.
The peace and harmony of the quiet
dawn was broken by the sound of thunder
as muskets roared like hungry lions. Dozens
of deer were struck and killed instantly by
the volleys of buckshot that fell upon them
in a deadly hailstorm of lead.
Fleeing deer bounded from the hunters
entrapment, while others remained motion-
less brown silhouettes on the killing field.
Hunters cradled in the lifeless pine trees,
scurried down and hurried to their kills. Soon
skilled hands, likened to surgeons, expertly
removed the hides from the deer, leaving the
white, cold carcasses lying shamelessly on
the dark, charred grounds.
The fresh deerskins were carried back to
camp and spread on the ground.
Excess flesh was carefully removed from
each hide to prevent spoilage and then cov
ered in a heavy layer of salt.
They were then stored in shelters filled
with hundreds of stacked hides.
During the 1700s, the deer in the south-
east were annually hunted and killed by
hundreds of thousands for their hides.
The carnage and waste was terrible, be-
cause the hunter sought only the hide.
This industry, which seemed like a bless-
ing to the Indians would raise its ugly head
and become a curse.
Only the old timers will remember the
Southern phrase, "Does the deer have any
doe? Yes, two bucks".
Its legacy goes back to the days when the
deer hide was the currency of the frontier.
It is time to "Take a Walk in The Past" and
read about the Creek Indians and others that
hunted the white tail deer.
In the 1540s, the Spanish explorer, Her-
nando De Soto, explored America's south-
east and encountered many different Indian
Nations.
Their names included Yamasee, Tucka-
batchee, Hitchiti, Koasati, Alabama, Timuc-
ua, Natchez, Shawnee, Yuchi and a hundred
more. Many of these tribes were known as


the Muscogulges, a broad term used to de-
scribe some of the Indian Nations that had
settled and lived in the southeast.
Hernando De Soto and other Europeans
unknowingly infected many Indian Nations
with the European diseases, so that by the
1700s, many of these large Indian Nations
in the southeast were reduced to mere rem-
nants.
Some were so small that they were on
the verge of extinction.
The Muscogulges formed federations
among themselves and with other Indian
Nations.
Although some Indian Nations in the fed-
erations had ancient common origins, some
spoke different languages and often could
not understand each other.
Historians believe the language of the
true Muscogulges was Muskogee and was
spoken by the Coweta, Kasihta, Coosa, Ala-
bama and Abihka, which are thought to be
the founding towns of the Muskogee.
According to Indian oral traditions, the
Hitchiti speaking Indians are thought to have
migrated down from the north and lived for
centuries in the Southeast.
Later, the Muskogee speaking Indians ar-
rived from the west and are thought to be
from the Mississippian Culture. The Musko-
gee invaded and settled on Hitchiti lands. The
Hitchiti word for Muskogee was "Ochesee,"
meaning invader.
The Muskogee's would later become
known as the Creek. It is a word thought to
have originated when the English settled in
the Southeast and started trading with the
Indians.
Traders from Charlestown with their
pack horses stopped by the Ochesee Creek,
bartering with the Indians for deer hides.
Over time the Indians were called Ochesee
Creeks, Ochesees, and eventually Creeks.
Creeks living in South Carolina allied
themselves with the Yamasee Indians during
the Yamasee War. The defeat of the Indian
coalition forced the South Carolina Creeks
to retire westward on the Chattahoochee
River.
English traders started calling the Indi-
ans living on the Chattahoochee the "Lower
Creeks" and those on the Coosa and Tal-
lapoosa above the forks of the Alabama
River the "Upper Creeks."
Eventually all the Indian Nations living on
the Chattahoochee and Flint rivers, regard-
less of their language and ethnic background
, became known as the "Lower Creeks."
All Indians living on the Coosa and Tal-
lapoosa were called the "Upper Creeks."
However, the English never labeled the Cher-
okee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw as Creek.
The problem with the English interpreta-
tion of Creek Indians was that the Yuchis,
Cowetas, Coosas, Alabamas, Shawnees,
Tuskegees, and many others still used their
Indian ethic backgrounds to define them-
selves and never considered themselves as
Lower or Upper Creeks.
This confusion caused by the term
"Creek" is still ongoing and a nightmare for
Anthropologist and Historians.
The English started settling and trading
in the southeast in the 1600s. The European
trade-goods in the southeast changed the
Indian Culture. The Europeans wanted two


things for their manufactured goods slaves
and furs, so for many years the Indians hunt-
ed two and four legged prey.
Indian slave hunters going into Florida
practically wiped out the Florida Indians by
the 1730s; therefore, most of their revenue
came from the four legged prey, the White
Tail Deer.
The deerskin became the symbolic dol-
lar (buck) on the frontier in the southeast.
In 1767, the Creeks sold 250,000 pounds
of deerskins, which represents just a mere
glimpse into the lucrative deerskin trade.
The main exporter of deerskins in the early
years was Charleston, South Carolina.
A thriving fur trade developed between
England and the Indians. The Indians pur-
chased guns, powder and other trade goods
that were made in England, using deerskins
as barter.
The hides were sent to English tanner-
ies and made into saddles, leggings, shoes,
gloves, harnesses, whips, breeches and
aprons.
The Indians became dependent on trade
goods that weren't necessary prior to the
English arrival in North America. Indian de-
pendency on European trade-goods forced
the men to leave their villages for months
and travel hundreds of miles for the white-
tail deer.
Traders started giving the Indians credit,
which created more issues, because the
hunter was now forced to hunt, so he could
pay last years' debt. Unknowingly, the Indian
had stepped into today's American culture,
buy now and pay latter.
In contrast to pre-Columbian Indians, the
Creeks were forced to hunt, so they could
purchase the now much needed trade-
goods. The time spent hunting increased as
game became scarcer, prices of manufac-
tures rose and native dependence on Euro-
pean goods intensified.
By the end of the eighteenth century, it
was customary for hunters to go off in Oc-
tober or November and return in March
or April. A hunter could spend six months
abroad deer hunting.
The Indians' dependency on European
trade-goods was a problem that we now
face with fossil fuels. No, we don't need all
the modern conveniences that the "Age of
Oil" has brought us, but life would be very
different without them. The Indian faced the
same problem. They could go back to the
old ways, but life wouldn't be the same.
There will be more Tale Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
the Creeks and other Indian Nations settle in
Florida.
I hope you have enjoyed this story. Please
contact the Clewiston Museum if you have
questions, artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale
of a Tale" that you would like to share. The
Museum's hours are Monday through Friday
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The museum provides an interesting,
fossil display of prehistoric animals that
once roamed the Glades thousands of years
ago and artifacts that reflect the heritage of
Clewiston. Our theater has a 65-seat capac-
ity and presents movies on the History of
Clewiston, Sugar Cane Harvesting, and The
Orange Industry. Come by and enjoy a 45-
minute group tour for $2 per person.

Clewiston blanked in spring game loss


Glades Central gets blown
out in spring game rematch;
Pahokee wins by one point

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
CLEWISTON Joe Roth is not too wor-
ried about how his football team performed
against Palm Beach Lakes.
Though the Clewiston Tigers were
rammed by Lakes, 27-0, in the May 30 spring
game, Roth knows what he's working with.
The Rams scored three times in the first
half, including a 65-yard touchdown pass
the Clewiston secondary allowed with just
30 seconds left in the second quarter.
The Clewiston head coach alludes the big
play to a breakdown in coverage, something
he believes will be worked on in time for the
regular season.
A slew of crucial defensive penalties in
the first quarter two pass interference calls
and a personal foul helped lead the Rams to
its first score of the game. Palm Beach Lakes
took a 20-0 halftime lead at Cane Field.
"First of all, Palm Beach Lakes is a very
good football team," Roth said of the Class
6A program. "I think they'll have a great sea-
son this year."
On the bright side for Clewiston, some
underclassmen did emerge as potential stars
for the 2009 season. Damian Smith, a safety,
picked off a Palm Beach Lakes pass in the
second half.
Clewiston recovered two fumbles in the
second half as well, including one from
linebacker Dillon Irey. The Tigers suited 42
players, but several of those who stepped
on the field had to play both on offense and
defense.
"We have some skill position players that
just started playing varsity football for us,"
Roth said. "Defensively, we didn't play badly.
We just gave up big plays," he continued.
The offense could not get going, how-
ever, as Andres Rios, Clewiston's new start-
ing quarterback, threw a interception in the
game. It's interesting to note that the pick
was on a third-and-long play that the coach-
es told Rios to simply take a chance on.
"It's tough to be a quarterback if you didn't
play last year," Roth said of Rios. "We're
pleased with the progress he's shown (Rios


suffered a shoulder injury this spring).
"I think he'll mature athletically over the
course of the summer," he continued. "He'll
do well for us."
In all fairness, Clewiston did not throw
much, but relied on the running game of two
new tailbacks Chris Herring and Chauncey
Thicklin.
Losing the spring game is not a big deal
for Roth, as he can simply look to last year as
some inspiration.
At this very point last season, Clewiston
was blanked 31-0 by Naples at home, but
used the experience to garner a respectable
7-4 record, including wins against Glades
Day, American Heritage (Delray Beach) and
Inlet Grove. Clewiston went on to win its
fourth consecutive district championship
last year.
Summer plans
As the team heads into the summer work-
out sessions, they'll turn to Athletes Advan-
tage of Royal Palm Beach for training.
Instead of traveling Clewiston is facing
severe budget constraints at this time Ath-
letes Advantage will come to the Clewiston
Tigers Fieldhouse twice a week for about
two months.
Roth is hoping to reach at least 50 pro-
spective football players for the summer
camp program.
It's in stark contrast to last year, when 25
players went to a team camp held at the Uni-
versity of Central Florida (UCF).
"In these tough times, we just decided to
stay home and simply do what we can to
reach more kids," Roth said.
Workouts will begin Monday, June 8, with
sessions to be held on Mondays, Wednes-
days and Thursdays.
The weight room will be open for work-
out sessions on those specified days from 11
a.m. to 1 p.m.
The schedule is expected to convene
through the first week of August.
Pahokee 14, Boyd-Anderson 13:
De'Joshua Johnson scored both of the Blue
Devils touchdown in their May 29 spring
game win.
The wide receiver/quarterback, who was
not impressed overall with his team's perfor-
mance, ran for a 4-yard score in the first half
to put Pahokee up 7-0.
Boyd Anderson played Pahokee tough as

it later countered with a touchdown of their
own to tie the game up at 7 apiece.
Then Joe Eason, who can see some
time at quarterback this upcoming season,
lobbed an 8 yard touchdown pass to John-
son in the fourth quarter.
Pahokee went up 14-7 at that point be-
fore Boyd Anderson came back with yet an-
other score. Fortunately for the Blue Devils,
they escaped with a one-point victory after
Boyd Anderson missed an extra point, which
would have tied the game up.
Raheam Buxton, who lined up at safety,
recorded a interception after picking off
Boyd Anderson's first pass of the game.
The game was played at Lockhart Sta-
dium in Fort Lauderdale.
Miami Central 34, Glades Central 12:
The Rockets turned the tables on the Raiders
in their spring game rematch.
Simply put, Miami Central was not going
to allow Glades Central to score 54 points or
more this time.
Miami Central lost 54-46 to Glades Cen-
tral last year at Effie C. Grear Field in Belle
Glade.
Up 12-7 at halftime Glades Central wide-
out Kelvin Benjamin (seven catches, 117
yards) scored two touchdowns the Raiders
run defense allowed 27 unanswered points
in the second half.
Miami Central running back Brandon
Gainer (230 total rush yards, 23 carries, 10.0
yards per rush average) scored three of the
Rockets four second half touchdowns, in-
cluding a 4-yard score to give them their first
lead in the third quarter.
Glades Central's secondary picked off Mi-
ami Central quarterback Jeff Godfrey three
times.
However, Godfrey did manage to throw
for 329 yards on 20-for-28 passing with two
touchdowns.
Glades Central's Carlton Lewis threw
both touchdowns to Benjamin in the first
half.
The Raiders offense was slowed in the
second half, as they registered just 72 total
yards.
This year's game was played at Traz Pow
ell Stadium in Miami, where Glades Central
has lost two consecutive games.
The Raiders lost their 2007 spring game
to Miami Northwestern, 35-21.

Hurricane season and the potential for
considerable wind and flood damage begins
in earnest June 1, so do not wait to make
your home more hazard resistant.
It's important to begin with a plan. Walk
around your home or business and take note
of possible causes of damage or vulnerabil-
ity. Contact your local emergency manager
to find out about the 100-year flood levels
and where you are in the floodplain.
Here are some tips from Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency (FEMA)'s Miti-
gation experts.
Protect your home against flood damage
Raise Electrical Boxes, Major Applianc-
es, and HVAC components at least one-foot
above the 100-year flood level.
Circuit Breaker Boxes Short circuits
in flooded systems pose a significant fire
danger. The likelihood of a flooded electrical
system can be reduced by raising all electri-
cal components.
Appliances Washers and dryers can
be elevated with pressure-treated lumber, or
moved to a higher floor; and
HVAC Exterior HVAC equipment
should be elevated by a professional con-
tractor.
Anchor fuel tanks When floodwaters
move an unanchored tank, the supply line
may tear. Additionally, filling and ventilation
tubes need to be above flood level so that
water cannot get inside the tank. Anchor in-
side and outside tanks with properly sized
ground anchors. For safety's sake, consult
local officials and building professionals
about the best methods for anchoring fuel
tanks.
Install sewer backflow valves Flood-
ing can cause sewer lines to back up into
houses through drainpipes. Backflow valves
are designed to block drainpipes temporar-
ily and prevent flow into the house. Have a
licensed plumber or contractor install the
valves.
Reinforce Vulnerable Areas to Minimize
Wind Damage
Strengthen Entry Doors and Windows
- Install storm shutters over all exposed
windows and glass surfaces. If replacing
an entry door, use an approved, impact-
tested door and install a dead bolt lock long
enough to penetrate the 2X4 framing of the
door. Also ensure the strike plate is installed
with screws long enough to penetrate the
door frame.
Brace garage doors A garage door
can be reinforced by adding braces across
the back of the door and by strengthening
the glider wheel tracks. If you are building
a home, consider purchasing a garage door
built to withstand high winds.
Gable End Walls Anchor and brace
the bottom of the gable end's triangular
wall to the ceiling joists or ceiling framing.


Strengthen the gable end wall studs and
brace the top of the gable end wall by tying
it to the rafters or tops of the trusses.
Keep Outdoor Gear from Becoming
Windborne Missiles Securely anchor all
storage sheds and other outbuildings, either
to a permanent foundation or with straps
and ground anchors. Bolt outdoor furniture
and barbecue grills to decks or patios, or at
tach them to ground anchors with cables
or chains. Secure trash cans with cables
or chains attached to ground anchors or
to wood posts firmly embedded in the
ground.
Trees and Landscaping Tips Proper
care of trees can also prevent storm dam-
age. Plant trees at the correct depth by mak-
ing sure the roots are at the soil surface.
Trees planted too deep could snap off at the
stem-girdled point during forceful winds.
Avoid wounding trees by banging them with
a lawn mower or cutting them with a weed
trimmer. Wounds lead to decay, a condition
that leads to storm-damaged trees. Prune
trees to correct defects such as multiple
leaders and weak branch attachments.
It is important to insure all reconstruction
work meets state and county building codes.
A professional homebuilder, architect, con-
tractor, or building supply retailer may pro-
vide valuable information.

shtm or order copies by calling 800-480-
2520. Florida residents can also find helpful
tips at www.floridadisaster.org and www.
disastersafety.org. Another source of helpful
information is available from the Federal Al-
liance for Safe Homes FLASH Inc. at www.
flash.org.
U. S. Small Business Administration
(SBA) disaster loans are the primary form of
federal assistance for non-farm, private sec-
tor disaster losses. Disaster loans from SBA
help homeowners, renters, businesses of
all sizes, and non-profit organizations fund
repair and replacement of disaster damaged
real and personal property.
These disaster loans cover uninsured and
uncompensated losses and do not duplicate
benefits of other agencies or organizations.
For information about SBA programs, appli-
cants may call 800-659-2955 or go online at
www.sba.gov.
When disasters occur, federal, state, and
local governments along with non-profit
disaster-relief organizations help many
people, but residents should do their part to
prepare.
Making homes and businesses more re-
sistant to wind or flood damage and having
flood insurance can help you in any future
wind or flooding events.

Heart to Heart at Hendry Regional Medical Center


By Glenda Wilson
On May 26, Dr. Esther Levin, a cardi-
ologist at Hendry Regional Medical Center,
opened the doors of her new office to meet
and greet the community.
The open house was sponsored by the
Clewiston Chamber of Commerce and the
local hospital.
Even though the weather was stormy, the
crowed wasn't deterred, as they came with
their umbrellas overhead to meet Dr. Levin.
Mercedes Vary, President of the Clewiston
Chamber of Commerce, introduced her to
the guests.
Dr. Levin greeted everyone and chuckled
as she said, "I would like to welcome you
to Hendry Regional Cardiology, although
it might not be the most appropriate place
that you'd like to be."
Arriving in Clewiston over four years ago,
Dr. Levin first began practicing at the Hendry
Family Care Center and just recently moved
to 532 West Sagamore Ave., building C (ad-
jacent to the hospital), now known as Hen-
dry Regional Cardiology.
The hospital relocated Dr. Levin to this
building, so that most of the patient's cardi-
ac procedures now can be performed right
on site.
Every Tuesday, Dr. Levin attends to pa-


tients in Clewiston con-
ducting nuclear stress
tests, patient consulta-
tions, holter monitoring,
Coumadin therapy, elec-
trocardiograms (EKG's),
and much more.
On the days that Dr.
Levin is not in Clewiston,
Liz Boykin, advanced
registered nurse practi-
tioner, is available.
Ms. Boykin is Dr.
Levin's link to the com-
munity.
Long travels and
expenses to the coast
for cardiac care can be
reduced by visiting Dr.
Levin's office, since pa-
tients may receive many
forms of cardiac ser-
vices, right at their back
door.
Dr. Levin not only
excels at caring for the
heart, but she also has a
'caring heart.
Call 863-902-3021 to
schedule an appoint-
ment.

Westside Students winners in




Tropicana Speech Competition

Westside's very own Cassidy Cohran was
victorious in last week's Tropicana Speech
Contest held at Clewiston High School.
Cassidy is a fifth grader in Mrs. Johnson's
class this year. Cassidy's speech was titled
"The Character's In My Life." In the speech
Cassidy portrays each family member as a te '
character and explaining their role in the
family. She spoke of a nerd, a boss, a prin-
cess, drama queen. Cassidy describes herself
as the athlete of the family. A Warrior also
walked away with the award for Most Hu-
morous. This award was earned by Kelsey
Allison for her speech on "My Worst Vaca- assidy Cohran showing her 1st place
tion Ever!" Westside is very proud of Cassidy to hy.
and Kelsey. Congratulations and way to go! rophy.



FFA Members "Get Down on the Farm"


FFA members were getting down on the
farm" at their annual banquet on Friday, April
24, 2009 in the Clewiston High School Caf-
eteria. The banquet wrapped up their suc-
cesses throughout the year where members
and community supporters were rewarded
for all their hard work. There were fifty four
Greenhand (first year membership) Degrees,
sixteen Chapter (second year membership)
Degrees, and five State Degrees awarded
during the program. The members recog-
nized Ken McDuffie (also guest speaker of
the night), Jon Basquin, Jeffrey Chue, 3A-W
Welding, Tractor Supply, and Lauren Dillard.
Members also added a new Honorary Mem-
ber to their roster, Mr. Jim Way. There were
approximately 180 members, parents, and
guests present that enjoyed the evening's
ceremonies and dinner.
New officers were also introduced at the
banquet. Next year's President will be Ka-
tie Whidden, Vice President-Brandi Herring,
Secretary-Kevin Hooker, Treasurer-Grant


Polhill, Reporter Jessica Schultz, Sentinel-
Emily Shanoski, Student Advisor Alana Rig-
dill, Chaplain-Amy Greene, Historian-Curtis
Thompson, and Parliamentarian-Kristian
Vidal.
Some achievements mentioned were be-
ing recognized as a chapter for being an elite
program in the nation, and another applica-
tion was submitted to hopefully receive the
same award again this year. There was also
a proficiency finalist at the state level last
year, and now the most proficiency applica-
tions submitted to the state to be reviewed
than there has been in years. To add to that,
the total number of members add up to a
whopping one hundred and three mem-
bers, which is the highest membership ever
for Clewiston's FFA Chapter. Members have
also doubled sugar cane acreage operations,
and enlarged their cow/calf operation to fifty
five head of cattle. This year's banquet was
a great success and members hope next
year's program is just as impressive.

Clewiston Goodwill Industries of South-
west Florida, Inc. will host two job fairs in

forklift drivers. Both full and part-time posi-


tions will be available at the new store.
"We're looking for employees that have
a passion for others and believe in our mis-
sion," says Bryan Avery, Goodwill District
Manager. "Our ideal employee has the skill
sets to provide excellent customer service,
can compete in a dynamic and constantly
changing environment, and want to grow
with our organization."
Goodwill anticipates interviewing be-
tween 150-200 retail applicants during these
job fairs. Avery adds, "We hope to find plen-
ty of employees who are as excited about
the new store opening as we are."

have a background in vocational training,

ment market in the Hendry/Glades region.

Mentor, who will recruit, train, and super-
vise mentors for approximately 50 youth in
Hendry, Glades, and Lee counties. The quali-
fied candidate should have some experience
with volunteer/mentoring programs, as well

rials necessary to display their qualifications.
Participants should be prepared to fill out a
paper job application and speak with an in-
terviewer for approximately 20 minutes.

Finding MySpace
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
"Who is more satisfied? The man with
ten children or the man with ten million dol-
lars?"
One student answered: "The man with
ten children."
When asked why, the student replied,
"Because the man with ten children doesn't
want any more."
Someone wrote to Ann Landers: "Dear
Ann: I've got to decide between the new car
and getting engaged. I love the girl. But ev-
ery night when I go to sleep I dream about
the car. What should I do?"
Found in national classified ads: "I would
like to meet a kind, cheerful, responsive girl
of no more than 25 years old. One of the
conditions of a future mate: a move to the
Polar North region."
Another stated: "HERE I AM unusual
and good looking 37-year-old woman, sit-
ting alone in my Manhattan apt. wonder-
ing where all the aware, caring, generous,
stable, and adventurous gentlemen are."
We are a people looking for fulfillment
and identity and relationships in all the
wrong places: the classified, the back pages
of life, our work and possessions, and now
even the internet.
I know I don't need to explain "MySpace"
to the current generation, but for the sake of
many readers, "MySpace" is a website filled
with over 70 million interactive, personal
webpages and blogs.
It's something like the old- fashioned per-
sonal pages in the newspaper (when news
came on paper), but it's more like 70 million
personal diaries, all hung out there for the
world to read.
At a deeper level, it's a metaphor for our
lives.
Finding "MySpace" is a search for our
place in the world.
We all search to find an identity, search to
know who we are and where we belong.
Ultimately, we find "MySpace" in the val-
ues we hold, the convictions, commitments,
and beliefs which guide our lives; and the
loves, thoughts, and other things which de-
fine us.
Finding "MySpace" is all about finding
out who we are.
As Christians, this space becomes sacred
as we cast our lot with the people of God
and say, "Yes, I will be a disciple of Jesus
Christ. I will allow my values to be shaped
by His life and my life will be shaped by His
love."
When we choose to become a disciple
of Jesus, when we log-on with the body of
Christ, we are automatically connected to
the "World Wide Web" of faith and become
one with all who proclaim the name of Je-
sus Christ.
And it's not just about our personal faith,
our personal identity, our personal space, or
our personal church.
Finding MySpace is also about connect-
ing to our place in the world-wide, global
family of God around the city, around the
country, and around the world.

Learning how to 'Cast out de-


mons'
By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas, Ph.
D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
The Church nursery had large glass doors
and I'd look in as I passed each Sunday
morning.
One morning, a youngster saw me peer-
ing in and started to cry and cry.
I wondered "Now what did I do?"
I tried to imagine what she saw; a figure
that must have appeared to be huge, all
dressed in black, and for some unknown
reason very scary!
I've seen children at Christmas; each with
their reactions to Santa Claus.
Some take kindly to the old gentleman in
red with the white beard; some do not.
They watch other children and decide to
approach him, even if a bit timid.
I made it a point to go by the Nursery and
see where the little girl was each Sunday
morning.
After awhile, the tears and cries stopped;
it was time to enter the room.
I stood by the door but she ran to the
back of the room and buried her face in one
of the teacher's dress.
No crying, though, progress was being
made. Each Sunday I would repeat the rou-
tine; entering the room and standing by the
door.
In time, fear seemed to give way to curi-
osity and a small person stood at the back of
the room regarding me with curiosity.
As time went on, she would watch me
out of the corner of her eye as I moved more
toward the interior of the room; being care-
ful not to stare or to force myself into her
world.
It took a while, apparently, for my pres-
ence to be a comfortable one and not evoke
any reaction.
I was grateful that I was being ignored!
"What has happened to you, child?"
crossed my mind many times, "What had
made you respond differently than the oth-
ers?"
I would look as time went on, making
sure to smile and trying to be present yet not
forcing myself on her.
My greatest moment came as I was pre-
paring to go to another ministry. I entered
the nursery during my final Sundays; the
little girl ran over to me and threw her arms
around my legs.
Her smile was an added bonus; a parting
gift better than all of the others given to me
as I went to a new ministry. The Lord was
traveling through the region of the Gerasenes
and encountered a man possessed and re-
jected (Luke 8:26ff).
He cried out "I beg you, don't torture me
(v.28)." Nobody knows what happened to
that man to have caused him to be as he was;
but his life left him to expect the worst.
It wasn't the worst he received from the
Lord, but compassion and healing. John
writes "Perfect love casts out fear(1 John
4:18)."
My love wasn't perfect; but maybe the
one I try to represent showed through in that
nursery. God gives us all the capacity to heal;
it's called love.


Do we need "Change" or
"Restoration?"
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Many of our politicians are promising
"Change" if they get elected to office.
But the question is "Do we need 'Change'
or 'Restoration'?"
A "Restoration" would take us back
in time to a place where things ran better,
smoother and life was more enjoyable.
"Change" is what we have been getting
all along!
We used to have a Strong Dollar Politi-
cians changed that!
Marriage used to be sacred Politicians
changed that!
We used to be respected around the
world Politicians changed that!
We used to have a Strong Manufacturing
Economy Politicians changed that!
We used to have lower tax structures -
Politicians changed that!
We used to enjoy more freedoms Politi-
cians changed that!
We used to be a large exporter of Ameri-
can made goods Politicians changed that!
We used to teach Patriotism in our
schools Politicians changed that!
We used to educate children in schools -
Politicians changed that!
We used to enforce LEGAL citizenship -
Politicians changed that!
We used to have affordable Food and Gas
prices Politicians changed that!
We used to have Prayer and Bible Read-
ing in our schools Politicians changed that!
Divorce used to be rare Politicians
changed that!
Abortion used to be frowned upon Poli-
ticians changed that and made it legal and
convenient!
Homosexuality used to be a sin and dis-
grace Politicians not only changed that but
are trying to make a law against speaking
against this abominable practice!
Drugs and Alcohol used to be used for
medicinal purposes Politicians changed
that and look what a mess we're in!
The trouble is, America's youthful voters
today don't know of the great America that
existed sixty years ago.
They see the world as if it has always ex-
isted, as it is now. When will we wake up?
Tomorrow may be too late.
When will America realize Politicians are
what's wrong with America.
What is needed is for the Constitution to
be amended to limit all Senators and Rep-
resentatives to Two Terms in office, like the
President.
And, by the way, no big Pensions either,
Social Security just like the rest of us.
Being a Politician shouldn't be a person's
life work but rather a call to service, then
back to being an honest hard working citi-
zen.
If you believe this, say, 'Amen!" Then do
something about it!
