2006 triple murder


suspect goes to trial


Ruby Parker to
appear in court in
August
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Ruby Yolanda
Parker, who is charged with com-
mitting three murders in Clewis-
ton, will be heading to trial next
month after three years in deten-
tion.
Parker has been held at the jail
facility in LaBelle, awaiting trial
for her alleged involvement in
the triple murder that rocked the
community of Clewiston in 2006.
She is expected to appear be-
fore Judge Christine Greider at the
LaBelle courthouse complex on
Aug. 19 at 9 a.m., with the actual
trial following shortly afterward.
Parker faces a fourth charge


of home invasion robbery, which
points to the suspicion of detec-
tives that the crime may have
been motivated by theft.
Parker has maintained her in-
nocence, filing a plea of not guilty
in 2006. She is being represented
by the public defender's office.
Prosecutors with the state at-
torney's office, in turn, filed a
notice of intent to seek the death
penalty for Parker.
When it occurred, the murders
surprised many in Clewiston and
on the traditionally quiet neigh-
borhood where the crime was
discovered.
Officers responded to the
residence on Avenida Del Rio on
Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2006 to find the
bodies of Joey Glenn Whitaker,
52, Carolyn Cox Whitaker, 53,
and Myrtle Lee Cox, 80, inside

Woman rescued from Clewiston canal dies


Woman was rescued
on Sunday by
members of a high
school football team
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- A woman who
was rescued from a vehicle that
overturned into a Hendry County
canal died at a Lee County hospi-
tal earlier this week.
The woman, 53-year-old Juan-


ita Carrillo Bryan of Moore Haven,
suffered serious injuries when the
car her husband was driving trav-
eled off the roadway a few miles
outside of Clewiston on Sunday
night.
Although several good Samari-
tans responded, they were unable
to save the woman's life.
According to reports, it was
just minutes after the accident
occurred when someone flagged
down a van that carried five men
-- a group of football players from
Broward County's Hollywood Hills
High School and their coach.


The men were on the ground
with the woman when officers ar-
rived.
Officials with the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office said that
the group sprang to action and
came to the aid of the overturned
vehicle, entering the canal to pull
the woman from the crash, and
helping her husband, and a two-
year-old child out of the vehicle.
Others who had been driving
through also stopped to help and
a number of cars were pulled over
to the side of the road offering as-
sistance.


The male driver and the child,
now wrapped in a blanket, seemed
free from serious injuries.
Juanita Bryan was initially non-
responsive, but began to breathe
after one of the men performed
CPR to resuscitate her. She was
airlifted to Lee Memorial Hospital
in Ft. Myers for emergency atten-
tion, but, according to Lt. Susan
Harrelle, with the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office, died as a result of
her injuries earlier this week.
Her husband, James Bryan, 56,

GC Raiders win NFL 7-on-7 national title


Glades Central WR Kevin
Benjamin named MVP

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
EDEN PRAIRIE (Minn.) Glades Central
has earned the right to be called national
champions, as far as the NFL is concerned.
After playing in this year's NFL 7-on-7
tournament, the Raiders cemented that dis-
tinction as they outlasted North Cobb (Ga.),
38-28 over the weekend.
Glades Central wide receiver Kevin Benja-
min, listed at 6-6 and 217 lbs., led all receiv-
ers with 13 touchdowns in the tournament.
In large part to that, including a series of
spectacular jump-ball plays for touchdowns,
Benjamin was selected by the NFL as the
tournament MVP.
As the Miami Dolphins representatives,
Glades Central went 11-0 in both prelimi-
nary and single-elimination play, including
blowout wins against the Cleveland Browns,
the New England Patriots and the Houston
Texans.
In the final, Glades Central held off North
Cobb, who served as the Atlanta Falcons
representatives.
Jessie Hester, Glades Central's head
coach, described the title game as a back-
and-forth affair.
He was right, as published reports re-
vealed that the Falcons were engaged in a
38-38 tie with the Dolphins (Glades Central)
with just two minutes left in the game.
In the end, however, Glades Central's
skill position players scored 10 unanswered
points, including a clutch defensive intercep-
tion by cornerback/safety Travis Bell.
"Atlanta had some skill position players,
but we were simply too much for them,"
said Greg Moreland, Glades Central's defen-


sive backs coach.
"Our boys worked hard and they were
prepared for it. Me and Coach Hester expect
a lot from them, we know what they're ca-
pable of."
If anything, the championship represent-
ed a coming out party for rising star Dem-
etrius 'Bay-Bay' Evans, who caught three
touchdown passes from quarterback L.J.
Thomas in the hotly-contested game.
Hester even went out his way to call the
championship game 'The L.J. and Demetri-
us Evans Show,' as Evans caught two deep
balls in good Atlanta defensive coverage for
touchdowns.
"They displayed tremendous ability with
their timing in the title game," Hester said of
Thomas and Evans.
"It seemed like they played with each
other for a long time."
Kevin Benjamin, Antwon 'Pooh Bear'
Chisolm and Greg Dent each scored touch-
downs in the title game, courtesy of Thom-
as's accurate passing.
Bell, who led the Dolphins (Glades Cen-
tral) with 10 interceptions throughout the
weekend national tournament, caught two
picks in the championship game.
"To witness the talent of all the teams out
there, we had to play well together," Hester
said of his players. It was important for us to
be on the same page and not second-guess
ourselves. In that sense, it lucked out in our
favor."
Amazingly, Glades Central averaged 40.4
points per game, scoring 444 points overall.
Thomas threw for 38 touchdowns, while
picking off just three passes in Glades Cen-
tral's 11 games.
Evans caught seven touchdown passes
overall, including a defensive interception.
The defense was more than respectable
as well, as they averaged four interceptions
per game.


One look at the figure will tell you that
Glades Central's defensive backs contribut-
ed at least 12 points per game, on average.
Hester was particularly impressed with
the play of Tavares 'T-Baby' Crawford, who
inspired the competition with his sheer
toughness, even with a dislocated thumb.
Crawford overcame his pain with one in-
terception, including 19 knockdowns, in the
tournament.
Chisolm, who scored five touchdowns in
the competition, caught eight interceptions
as a cornerback on defense.
Dent, widely considered as one of the na-
tion's most explosive skill position players,
recorded five interceptions overall.
Jamorris 'Mario' Rowland contributed on
defense with three picks of his own.
The other Glades Central players at the
tournament were Alanda 'A.J.' Shaw, Domi-
nique Gibson, Carlton Lewis Jr. and Jamie
Wilson.
Here are the results of Glades Central's 11
tournament games:
Preliminary results Day 1
Game 1 Defeated Indianapolis Colts,
67-7
Game 2 Defeated Houston Texans, 41-
28
Game 3 Defeated Baltimore Ravens,
54-28
Game 4 Defeated Denver Broncos, 31-
24
Game 5 Defeated Cleveland Browns,
28-21 (2 OT)
Game 6 Defeated New York Jets, 45-28
Game 7 Defeated New England Patri-
ots, 34-3
Elimination results Day 2


First round
Browns, 24-0


Defeated Cleveland


Quarterfinals Defeated New England
Patriots, 41-28
Semifinals Defeated Houston Texans,
31-17
Final Defeated Atlanta Falcons, 48-38
The preliminary games were played on
Friday, July 10, while the single eliminations
took place on Saturday, July 11.
"The kids had a tremendous experience,"
Hester said of the 12 players who competed.
They represented themselves, our coaching
staff, the Dolphins, Glades Central and the
community well. I couldn't ask any more of
them on and off the field."
Tournament notes
The NFL 7-on-7 tournament was pre-
sented by the U.S. National Guard and was
played at the Minnesota Vikings Winter Park
training facility in Eden Prairie, MN.
Of the 16 NFL teams represented, only
the Dolphins (Glades Central), the Falcons
(North Cobb), the Arizona Cardinals and
Washington Redskins featured an organized
high school football team.
The other 12 teams were comprised of
all-star skill position players from their re-
spective cities.
All 16 teams reportedly won their region-
al tournaments in their NFL markets to earn
a spot in the national competition.
Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Chil-
dress gave a 20 minute long speech to the
16 teams, with Glades Central being the only
team to take photos with him afterwards.
NFL Films shot footage of the 7-on-7
competition, with The NFL Network slated
to air highlights from the tournament later
this summer.

competition, you could visit the Internet at

Pahokee PBSO PAL boxers win in Hollywood


By Steven Tillings
Pahokee boxers once again made a win-
ning presence. This time it was at the Hilton
Hotel ballroom in Hollywood Florida.
Spectators from many different states had
the opportunity to see the Pahokee boxers
perform and win.
Pahokee Elementary School's 9-year-old
Michael Guerrier was the 8th bout of the
afternoon when he faced 10-year-old Jor-
dan Murphy from the Broward Sheriff's Of-
fice Police Athletic League, in the 60 pound
weight division.
This bout was a rematch for Guerrier
who was defeated by Murphy at the Junior
Olympics last April.
As soon as the boxing gloves were placed
on his hands, the Pahokee boxer did not
waste any time and entered the ring first,
telling his coach, Deputy Mike LeStrange,
"I'm going to win this time coach."
When the opening bell rang, Guerrier was
all business, as he stayed in front of Murphy
and was landing right jabs and straight left
hands to his opponent.
When Murphy attempted to counter
punch, Guerrier's quick reflexes kept him
from getting hit.
At the conclusion of the competition, the
ring announcer informed the crowd that Mi-
chael Guerrier won a three-round decision.

Mike LeStrange is proud of the work of his boxers, who are determined to rep-
resent the Glades area in a positive light.


was then placed on him.
Coach LeStrange said he is proud of Mi-
chael. He said, "We studied Murphy, and
found a way to train to beat his style of box-
ing."
In the 13th bout, Pahokee Middle/High


School's Trent Laidler won again in the 119
weight division by defeating Miami's Zach-
ary Vasquez in a 3-round decision.
Laidler is the first Florida champion from
the Pahokee PAL boxing gym and won the
Florida Junior Olympic championship in Ju-


piter last April.
He was landing punches in combina-
tions and was beating Vasquez to the punch.
Coach LeStrange said, "We are going to
compete as much as possible, so our Paho-
kee athletes are as sharp as we can make
them."
Pahokee Parks and Recreation Director
Herbert Crawford and Coach LeStrange are
working together to bring the Florida State
Silver Gloves Boxing Championship to Paho-
kee this December.
This is a historic event for the city. Paho-
kee has never hosted a state boxing champi-
onship before.
LeStrange said, "The Silver Gloves will
bring about 500 visitors to Pahokee for the
weekend.
Mr. Crawford and I feel this event will be
a win-win for the kids, and community. We
expect a good economic impact for the city.
Teams throughout Floridawill come here.
This includes athletes, coaches, parents, and
family friends."

ing call (561) 254-7773.

By Patricia Dobbins
Every year staff members at the Hendry
and Glades County Health Departments get
together for their annual "Preparedness Day
Training."
This year the staff enjoyed a special guest
speaker: Jim Syoen, Sky Warn 4 Weather
Forecaster with WFTX-TV/FOX 4.


By Glenda Wilson
Pamela Redondo has joined the adminis-
trative staff of Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter as its new Chief Nursing Officer (CNO).
She came to Clewiston, Florida in May of this
year, with over 14 years of nursing experi-
ence.
Pamela received her nursing diploma
from Jackson Memorial Hospital School of
Nursing in Miami, Florida.
She continued her education to receive a
Bachelors Degree in nursing and a dual Mas-
ters in nursing and business administration,
with a specialty focus in healthcare admin-
istration from the University of Phoenix in
Plantation, Florida.
Today's chief nursing officers are respon-
sible for a vast array of tasks everything
from operations, evaluations and strategy to
the delivery of care, mentoring, benchmark-
ing, and management.
Pamela has been successful in imple-
menting action plans to reduce costs, while
maintaining the highest quality of patient
care.
Her clinical experience has been in mul-
tiple disciplines such as compliance, case-
management, operations, quality, and clini-
cal nursing.
Her expertise as a nursing consultant
has helped hospitals and physician prac-
tices identify adherences and deviations of
healthcare standards.
While focusing on her key responsibility
of 'enhancing the quality of patient care,' Pa-
mela will also work towards:
Recruiting and retaining nurses
Collaborating with nurse managers


The training event took
place at the Hendry County
Health Department-Clewis-
ton site on Friday, June 19th.
This year's theme was "We
Are Survivors."
All staff members were
encouraged to dress in their
"survivor-tropical gear" and
Jim Syoen decided to join
in on the fun by wearing his
Hawaiian shirt, shorts and
deck shoes.
The staff members thor-
oughly enjoyed the wisdom
and wit of Jim Syoen, and
really appreciated that he
drove over 70 miles to join
the event. He was definitely
the "positive thunder" of the


He talked to the staff about the hurricane
season outlook, how different weather pat-
terns and hurricanes form, and some basic
"survival skills."
He opened the floor so that questions
could be asked, which prompted discus-
sions on tornadoes, lightning and thunder-


storms. He also talked about past storms to
remind everyone how quickly the path of a
storm can change.
The staff members tried to convince him
to play his tuba, but he shared some comi-
cal stories as to why his tuba was being
"cleaned."
Other guests at the event included Arlene
Bettencourt with United Way & 211, the
Hendry County Emergency Management Di-
rector, Lupe Taylor and her Executive Assis-
tant, Kelly Dyess. Additionally, Brett Slocum,
the Regional Emergency Response Advisor
for the Department of Health provided the
staff with some valuable information.
The training events included prepared-


ness challenges that encouraged staff to
"think outside of the box" when it comes to
disaster preparedness.
Staff members were divided into teams
and were give disaster scenarios in which
they had to come up with response solu-
tions.
Hendry County Emergency Manage-
ment donated a weather radio and other
preparedness goodies as prizes for the staff
members.
It was a challenging but fun learning
experience. Hopefully it will be a quiet hur-
ricane season but if not, the staff members
at the Hendry and Glades County Health De-
partments are prepared.

Walk in the Past: Andrew Jackson invades Florida


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
An exodus of lanky men with weather-
worn skins, bronzed by the sun and cal-
loused by the plow, journeyed with their
women folk and towheaded children across
the Georgia wilderness trails like the wan-
dering Lost Tribes of Israel.
The moving, shifting throngs of people,
with rough, homespun cloths and simple
ways, failed to denote Southern gentry, but a
land-hungry people that saw the new Indian
lands as their rightful heritage to an Ameri-
can dream.
The sorrowful eyes of a defeated and re-
jected brown-skinned race watched from
the enclosed shadows of their many forests,
while masses of white humanity moved
across their lands, devouring the endless
hunting grounds like swarms of locust, until
only farms and barnyard sounds remained.
The old saying, "The Law of The Jungle,"
emphasizes the survival of the fittest and
alludes to another saying, "To the Victor
goes the Spoils." These famous quotes are
great appraisals when one is a winner, but
somewhat unhealthy to one's morale and
demeanor, should he or she lose and the
stakes are high.
It is time to "Take a Walk in The Past" and
learn about the vanquished Creek Indians
and their impact on Florida.
The Creek War, 1813 to 1814, started as a
civil war among the Creek Indians, but esca-
lated into a war with the United States when
Ft Mims was attacked and its inhabitants
massacred. The United States was already
engaged in a war with England called "The
War of 1812,"when it declared war on the
hostile Creeks.
Most of the U.S Army troops were already
battling the British armies and their Indian
allies in the north. The lack of U.S. Army
troops forced the Southeast states and ter-
ritories to call for volunteers. Soon volunteer
militias sprang up in the territories and states
representing present day Georgia, North and
South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, and
Mississippi.
The Tennessee Volunteer army and 39th
Army regulars under Colonel Jackson be-
came the driving force that defeated the
hostile Creeks, known by the settlers as Red
Sticks. Colonel Andrew Jackson and his
armies invaded the Red Stick's sacred Holy
Ground, which was the heartland to their
settlements. They engaged the Red Sticks in
a series of battles and broke their resistance
at The Battle of Horseshoe Bend.
A peace treaty was negotiated and signed
by only one Red Stick leader because the
other Red Stick leaders had fled to Florida
where they continued to fight. The armistice
was called The Treaty of Ft. Jackson. The
treaty ceded 23 million acres of land from
the Creek Red Sticks to the United States.
Most of the land ceded would later become
the state of Alabama.
Some of the lands ceded to the United
States belonged to friendly Creeks, Chero-
kees and other Indian nations that had allied
with the United States and fought the Red
Sticks.
Jackson made allowances for these Indi
ans. He gave each a one-mile square (640
acres) within the boundaries of the ceded 23

early 1800s, telecommunication technology had not been invented yet.


million acres.
Those friendly Indians, who received
640 acres, were required to live on the land.
Failure to live on the allotted land would for-
feit legal ownership. The land would be re-
turned to the United States Government for
later distribution to white settlers.
The Indians who fought and supported
the United States during the war were very
angry. A square mile of land looks mighty
enticing to us folks today, but back in the
day it was a bitter pill for the friendly Indians
to swallow, when you consider they had le-
gitimate claims to hundreds of thousands of
acres before the Creek War started.
The Treaty of Fort Jackson in 1814, of-
ficially ended the Creek War in the United
States, but it continued unofficially in Ole
La Florida until the Peace Treaty of Ghent
was signed in 1815, which ended the War
of 1812.
Spain was England's ally in the Napo-
leonic Wars (1808 to 1814) and enemy to
France. In 1812, the United States declared
war on England, so Spain simply declared
itself a neutral country and La Florida a neu-
tral territory. This was purely a political ploy
on Spain's part.
A partnership between Spain and Eng-
land budded in Florida; Spain was always
fearful that the United States was going to
take Florida, and justly so, while England
had never gotten over the loss of her 13 colo-
nies. Spain needed a protectorate, so behind
closed doors, a conspiracy was formed.
British troops and supplies were brought
into northwest Florida on Apalachicola Bay.
Forts were constructed on the Apalachicola
River and military training provided to the
Red Sticks, Seminoles and Blacks living in
the region.
British officials provided guns and sup-
plies to the Red Sticks and other Indians that
were fighting the United States in the Creek
Indian War. The British hoped to create a
strong British sentiment in the Southeast
and encouraged the Five Civilized Tribes to
wage war on the United States.
Black slaves living in the South were also
encouraged by the British to flee to Florida,
where they would find a safe haven from
slavery. England hoped to recruit and arm


an army of black soldiers 5,000 strong. They
would invade Georgia and start a slave in-
surrection, which could spread across the
south, causing havoc and weakening the
United States resolve to continue the war.
Colonel Andrew Jackson was promoted
to Major General in 1814. That same year he
invaded Spanish Florida and captured Pen-
sacola, which messed up the British plans
for using that region as a staging point for
the invasion of Georgia.
Jackson was so thoroughly convinced
the British had big plans for Florida that
he almost missed "The Battle of New Or-
leans." His orders were to proceed to New
Orleans after the capture of Pensacola, but
he hesitated, while trying to figure out Brit-
ish strategy in Florida. His late arrival in New
Orleans gave him little time to prepare for
the defense of the city.
Jackson met the British at the Battle of
New Orleans with a much smaller army.
The British commanders viewed Jackson's
army with contempt. They saw an inferior,
rag-tag army going against British soldiers
that had faced and defeated Napoleon's elite
French soldiers. It was prideful oversight that
brought disastrous results and the defeat of
their army.
The battles of Horseshoe Bend and New
Orleans turned General Jackson, "Old Hick-
ory," into a national hero. Sad, but true, the
Battle of New Orleans was fought after the
Treaty of Ghent was signed in 1815. Unfor-
tunately, Ma Bell wasn't present at that time,
so communications were too slow.
The British made provisions in the Treaty
of Ghent that protected Indian Nations who
had fought against the United States. These
provisions stated that Indians hostile to the
United States during the war would retain
their lands.
President Madison, John Quincy Adams
and Andrew Jackson contented that the pro-
visions in the Treaty of Ghent, which guar-
anteed hostile Indians their lands as null
because it was signed after the Fort Jackson
Treaty, which declared all hostile Indians to
now be friendly Indians.
The British and other European powers
protested, but to no avail. The Fort Jackson
Treaty went into effect and 23 million acres


of Indian Lands became American soil.
American settlers rushed to the ceded
lands after the British forces withdrew in
1815. One of the greatest land rushes in the
history of the United States took place on
lands not surveyed or officially offered for
sale until 1817.
There will be more Tall Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
Jackson invades Florida a second time and
the First Seminole War begins.
On a short note, the article last week stat-
ed Davy Crockett was mad at the soldiers for
their brutal treatment of Creek Red Sticks. I
was doing research and found his biogra-
phy.
Davy wrote that he and his comrades
shot the Indians like dogs, which contradicts
my article. The other statements about Davy
Crockett were true. I apologize to the read-
ers.
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 fos-
sil display of prehistoric animals that once
roamed the Glades thousands of years ago
and artifacts that reflect the heritage of
Clewiston. Its theater has a 65-seat capacity
and presents movies on the history of Clewis-
ton, sugar cane harvesting, and the orange

The most important
20 minutes of your day

birth to age nine.


Did curiosity kill the cat? He had

eight other lives anyway!
By The Reverend Samuel S. Thomas, Ph.
D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We turn out to be curious creatures. From infancy, creatures
explore their worlds and seek to discover all they can about their
what is going on around them. Biblical times were no different.
Moses was tending the flock of his father in-law and saw a bush
that is afire but doesn't burn up (Exodus 3;lff) He is compelled to
find out why
At Jesus' birth, angels appear to shepherds and announce the
good news. When they left, the shepherds said "Let us go to Beth-
lehem and see this thing that has happened, that the Lord told us
about. (Luke 2:15)" Hearing about it wasn't enough, they had to
go and see it for themselves.
We have been involved in space travel since World War II be-
cause of our innate curiosity about "What's out there?" I've seen
people spend hours working to put life back into a dead motor;
keeping at it until it runs again. It isn't just a case of repairing the
motor; it's a need to find out why and what was overlooked in
previous attempts.
Parents seek the causes of an allergy that affects one of their
children; searching to see if it is something that can be eliminated
and are satisfied only when the rash goes away. I used to have
a series of blocks made from irregularly shaped pieces of plastic;
when assembled correctly were perfectly square and would fit in
side of a plastic box on my coffee table People would come over
and visit; and then take the blocks out of the boxes The pieces
would tumble onto the table and they would spend the rest of the
evening trying to put them in the right sequence so that they would
fit back in the box. I'd be asked "Can I take them home?" ("No you
can't" was always my answer!) What is the answer to the question
"Why?"
The God-given answer seems to be "Go, find out!" God has
made us curious in our very being. We understand that about what
is going on around us and is visible; but it's true spiritually as well.
I've been asked often enough "Why did he have to die?" and can
only give some general answers as a rule; "His ministry here was
finished" or "He had accomplished what God sent him here to do."
The better answer to our questions is "Go, find out for yourself."
Be curious enough to find your own answer; then it will serve
you and will be truly satisfying. I found my answer to the question
"Why?" sometimes was "Why not?" or "Keep looking When we
find our world turned upside down or when life seems to be falling
into a not so-comfortable rut; it may be time to say "Let's go over
to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened'" That may be
the final answer!


Granny's Letter
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
"A cheerful heart is good medicine." (Proverbs 17:22). We can
experience blessings if we don't take life so seriously that we miss
out on laughing often. Laughter's good medicine for the body and
the soul. In that spirit, let me share with you some "holy humor".
Got a letter from Grandma the other day in which she writes:
The other day I went up to a local Christian bookstore and saw
a "Honk if you love Jesus" bumper sticker. I had just come from
a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer
meeting, so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper Boy, I'm
glad I did! What an uplifting experience that followed'
Stopped by a red light at a busy intersection, I got lost in thought
about the Lord and how good He is and didn't notice that the light
had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because
if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed!
I found that LOTS of people love Jesus! Why, while I was sitting
there, the guy behind me started honking like crazy, and then he
leaned out of his window and screamed, "For the love of GOD! GO!
GO!" What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone
started honking! I just leaned out of my window and started wav-
ing and smiling at all these loving people. I even honked my horn
a few times to share in the love!
I saw one guy waving in a funny way with one finger stuck up


in the air. When I asked my teenage grandson what that meant, he
said that it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something.
Well, I've never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out the win-
dow and gave him the good luck sign back. My grandson burst out
laughing. Even he was enjoying this religious experience!
A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the
moment that they got out of their cars and started walking toward
me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but
then I noticed the light had changed. So, I waved to all my sisters
and brothers, grinning, and drove on through the intersection. I
noticed I was the only car that got through the intersection before
the light changed again, and I felt sad that I had to leave them after
all the love we had shared, so I slowed the car down, leaned out
of the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one
last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks.
Love, Grandma
As a Christian, is that which I think I'm saying really saying
what I want to say? I may know what I'm saying, but do others2
Good and perceptive interacting communication is key. Without it,
who knows what messages we may transmit?


"Bad advice"
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Several years ago Paul Harvey wrote an article "They Gave Us
Some Awfully Bad Advice". As we are celebrated this month the
birth of our nation, I think this article bears repeating.
"They gave us some awfully bad advice. They told us that, if
we'd relax about sex, take our clothes off and not get uptight about
it, there would be no more sex crimes. So, we let it all hang out...
and the incidence of rape has increased 10% in one year. They
told us we'd been too tough with criminals, that we should go
easy on them. So we went easy on them... and the rate of violent
crime increased 47% since, increasing 6% last year, is increasing
15% more this year. They told us that if we'd just be more gener-
ous with poor folks there'd be no motive for stealing anymore.
We gave everybody a guaranteed income and robbery, burglary,
larceny, and auto theft are running 15% more this year. They said
that churches were "old fashioned", that they must modernize,
liberalize, rationalize, compromise. And those that compromised
most are shrinking fast. They insisted that our schools must boot
God out, and rely on enhancing jurior's intelligence. So we gradu
ated a generation of juniors with refined intellects and undisci
plined emotions -- so school-age suicides have soared 92% in two
years. They told us alcoholism and drug addiction were sicknesses,
not crimes. Now we're gagging, choking, strangling on forbidden
fruit. They said, informal marriage was enough, so now the odds
are 5 to 4 your rapture will be ruptured and 2 of 7 that the next
baby will be born illegitimate Who are these "They" who have
been misleading us? "They" are the materialist who clarify the fine
sciences. "They" mean well, but their intentions are paving the
road to HELL. Now I've quit commentating and gone to preach-
ing. I don't mean to, but I can't separate goodness and badness
from today's news and explain it Every ugly headline in today's
newspapers- and yesterday's and tomorrow's is somebody's
emotions gone out of whack. He might be smart as all get-out; but
if he's emotionally colorblind, he is an unguided missile destined
inevitably to self-destruct.
Space ship earth came with a book of instructions; let's see
what it says .. IT SAYS, We should not be slothful in business In
fact, it says he who does not work, let him not eat' IT SAYS, Don't
get drunk.. period! IT SAYS: Don't steal anything anything' IT
SAYS, you sleep only with your own wife. IT SAYS, You don't do
what you "want", you do what you "ought", and for those whose
consciences are anesthetized, it specifies which is for which. In
other words, if that rule book were not divinely inspired, it would
still be a blueprint for an orderly existence. If it did not promise
life hereafter it still would contain the best formula for a good life
here."
I just wonder what Mr. Harvey would think about what the
present administration and its "stimulas checks", "bail-outs" and
borrowing from future generations. Also what would he think
about Obama's statement that we are no longer a Christian nation
but a secular nation.

the home. The police department had been
called in to check on the residents after ef-
forts to locate them by their family members
failed.
Initially, Florida Department of Law En-
forcement (FDLE) agents reported no signs
of visible trauma on any of the victims. One
of the family's vehicles, a truck, had also
gone missing.
A search effort to find the suspects began,
with a number of different law enforcement
agents converging on a site at the Big Cy
press Indian Reservation where the vehicle
was spotted.
A short chase ensued, with the vehicle
ramming into two police cruisers. When
officers ordered him to exit the vehicle, the
suspect reportedly shot himself in the head
with a gun.
The woman passenger, Parker, was taken
into custody.


Having been registered as a missing per-
son, Parker surprised law enforcement of-
ficials in Mississippi who had been looking
for her. She was last seen in that state with
Harker.
Members of the Whitaker family later told
The Clewiston News that Harker and Joey
Whitaker had worked together hauling trash
and debris in Mississippi following Hurricane
Katrina. One of the couple's daughters said
her father had previously expressed concern
about Harker's threats to shoot him, and re-
called a story about her father and Harker
having a falling out in Mississippi.
She believes she may have talked to the
suspect himself just before the murders
were discovered.
"You're the daughter from Naples, right?
You had a baby six months ago."
The man seemed well-spoken and con-
vinced the daughter that he was only taking
care of her father. When she offered to drive
to Clewiston herself, he reportedly told her,
"No, he's fine. We're going out to dinner."

Thrice is nice for Martin


Florida pro wins third FLW
Tour event, Wendlandt
claims AOY

By Brett Carlson

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. When
Scott Martin came across a series
of offshore rock piles in practice,
he stopped to investigate. These
isolated sweet spots, located on a
Missisquoi Bay flat, were loaded
with largemouth bass hiding in a
mix of healthy grass, and Martin
thought they could potentially go
the distance. Clark Wendlandt,
however, had no intentions of
winning the tournament. His
sights were set on becoming the
first to win three Angler of the
Year titles.
Both pros had their game
plans come to fruition on day four
of the Walmart FLW Tour event
on Lake Champlain. For Martin it Scott M
was special because he was fish- other on
ing with a heavy heart this week
as his maternal grandmother passed away
the day before the tournament began. He
said he dedicated his third FLW Tour title to
her and could feel her presence with him
on the water. After weighing in four bass,
Martin needed one more keeper to knock
off Anthony Gagliardi.
He looked into his bag, reached down
for his fifth fish and said, "She wasn't just a
top-10 grandma, she was a championship
grandma."
The Clewiston, Fla., native later elabo-
rated on the win.
"I have such a peace about this," said
Martin, the son of legendary angler Roland
Martin. "If I could keep this confidence and
peace the rest of my life, I think I could win
every tournament. What I envisioned this
week was flying to Oklahoma (site of fu-
neral arrangements) with a trophy in hand.
Hopefully that will provide some joy in a
sorrow time."
Of Martin's three victories, two have
came on Champlain, the other on the Pas-
cagoula River. In 2004, the National Guard
pro sight-fished exclusively for spawn-
ing smallmouths. Since that tournament,
no angler has won a tour-level event on

Champlain with entirely smallmouths. He
located some bedding brown bass this
week, but he caught and weighed only one
of them. Instead, smallies were a backup
for his brilliant largemouth strategy.
Sitting in 5 to 8 feet of water, Martin's
postspawn fish were gravitating to a healthy
mix of milfoil and
eelgrass. Martin
said the grass was
critical because
Lake Champlain
and the Adiron-
dacks region
have experienced
a cool and wet
spring. The grass
Martin found was
about the best the
northern portion
of the lake had to
offer.
- His three main
baits were a Tex-
as-rigged Berkley

rtin bows up on an- (green-pumpkin),
a Lucky Craft Fat
CB B.D.S. 3 crank-
bait (Tennessee-shad color) and a Strike
King Series 5 crankbait. On the crankbaits,
he tied 12-pound Trilene 100% fluorocar-
bon line and he used the same line, but in
17-pound-test, on the creature bait, which
was pegged with a 3/8-ounce Tru Tungsten
weight.
During the two-day opening round,
Martin said half the fish came on the Chig
ger Craw and half on the crankbaits. On
day three, the percentage moved to 75-25
in favor of the crankbait, and on the final
he estimated it was 90-10.
"It seemed like the bigger fish wanted
the moving baits as the tournament pro-
gressed. I used the crankbait as a search
tool as a way to find them and get them go-
ing, and then I thoroughly combed through
the area with the Chigger Craw."
Martin finished the final round with a
total weight of 36 pounds, 4 ounces su-
perseding his 2004 winning weight of 32-8.

million mark.
"They're all special," Martin said of his
victories. "This puts me in a class with only
a few other guys."
