Local explorers program

produces fine citizens


Group continues to
meet, fostering
citizenship
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- When they're
not out on the field getting the
bad guys off the streets, Sgt. Jus-
tin Spence and Detective David
Colburn can be found teaching
teenage members of their explor-
ers program what being good citi-
zens really means.
The two are responsible for
kick-starting the Clewiston Police
Department's explorers program
in 2006 after years of inactivity,
and giving local children another
avenue for success.
For many of these children, the
program offers a window into the
world of officers patrolling their lo-
cal streets. Some have aspirations
of becoming officers themselves,
and find the program a great way
of learning the ins and outs of law
enforcement; while others simply
better themselves through the les-
sons and the discipline that are
instilled in them.


"Sometimes kids don't have a
big family structure to learn they
need to do the right thing," said
Detective Colburn. "These are
great kids."
In total, three law enforce-
ment officials, Detective Colburn,
Officer Holley and Officer Green,
mentor 14 active members of the
explorers program.
Explorers are taught a lot about
policing, and only until they are
sufficiently knowledgeable are
they allowed to go on ride-alongs
during patrols. Even then, they
are kept away from harm's way
and are allowed to observe how
officers interact with their com-
munities.
A very visible group, the kids
can be seen proudly leading pa-
rades, and participating in most
major local events.
Recently, two of the members
of the program, Jose Torres and
Jeanette Herrera, completed a
mini police academy program at
Tanahkeeta Camp in Tequesta.
The two spent a week at the site,
before graduating.
They are just two examples

Fire destroys home
A fire tore through this home over the weekend near the corner
of Old U.S. 27 and Evercane Road in western Hendry County.
According to Bo Pelham, the local fire marshall, the home was
not occupied at the time and no injuries were reported. The de-
partment continues looking into what caused the fire.


H.C.S.O.: Crime stats plunge


According to recently released
crime reports, violent crime in
Hendry County has plunged 39.2
percent and nonviolent crime is
down 22 percent in the first half of
2009.
According to reported statis-
tics, residential burglaries are up
7 percent but thefts are down 43
percent.
This is a significant drop from
the same period of time last year


when overall crime was up 6.3 per-
cent.
So far this year, 2009 crime is
down 25.5 percent.
In 2004, crime was reported
down 11.8 percent over 2003, but
increased 42.8 percent in 2005.
In 2006 it dropped 17.4 percent
only to rocket 26.08 percent again
in 2007.

Terriers break several records at Big Dog testing


Two Moore Haven lineman
lay claim to Big Dog status

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN Jason Bond's expecta-
tions were met last week, as several of his
players either tied or set Big Dog testing re-
cords.
He came away impressed with two play
ers in particular Terrier juniors Jermaine
Augustine and Jaime Juarez.
It was a battle right to the finish for these
two standouts, as both, in actuality, broke
the team's squat lifting record, set by An-
thony Holley in 2007 (455 lbs.)
Juarez, who may emerge as Moore Ha-
ven's most highly regarded football player
this season, was the first to overtake Holley's
record, squatting 475 lbs.
As his teammates and coaches watched,
it looked as if Juarez would end up making a
successful lift of at least 500 pounds.
But it was not to be, as Augustine, a line-
backer listed at 5-8, 188 lbs., overtook Juar-
ez, making out at a whopping 505 lbs.
"It was really surprising that Jermaine
was able to squat that much," Bond said of
Augustine.
"He has a really strong lower body for
someone of his stature. For him to do that,
it's pretty amazing."
Juarez couldn't agree more with Bond's
assessment of Augustine, who squatted
close to three times his actual weight (2.686
times to be exact).
"Jermaine's got real strong legs, I'll give
him that," Juarez conceded.
"I told him I wouldn't believe it unless I
actually see it. He proved me wrong."
Which takes away absolutely nothing
from Juarez, who firmly broke three records
of his own.
The junior offensive/defensive lineman,
listed at 5-10 and 233 lbs., broke the military
press record at 200 lbs.
Juarez, who broke his won military press
record by 35 lbs. (165 lbs. in 2008), maxed
out on the bench at 295 lbs.
That record was previously set by Holley
in 2007 (275 lbs.)
In addition, the standout peaked at 225
lbs. in the power clean 20 lbs. more than
Aaron Lopez, last year's record holder.


INI/Naji Tobias
Moore Haven's Jaime Juarez broke the Big Dog power clean mark at 225 lbs. The Big Dog testing took place at Moore
Haven High School on Monday, Aug. 3 and Wednesday, Aug. 5.


Juarez said in order for him to accom-
plish those feats, he had to push himself in
the weight room since the beginning of the
summer.
"This summer, Jaime has proven himself
to be a leader and a example for a lot of our
kids," Bond said of Juarez.
Bond was also proud to announce that
Juarez and Augustine were the two Terriers
who made Big Dog Status this year.
Interestingly, however, Juarez qualified
on a stipulation rule, while Augustine was
the only one who made it outright.
To become a Big Dog, you must score 80
overall points in the eight combined lifting
and field events (power clean, bench, mili-
tary press, squat, vertical leap, 40-yard dash,
20-yard backpedal and 400 meter run).
Augustine (82 points) cleared the thresh-


old, while Juarez scored 78 points just two
points off the mark.
The stipulation Juarez qualified under
was that in the four lifting exercises, he
maxed out at an astounding 1,215 pounds.
To qualify, if you didn't score at least 80
points, you must lift at least 1,000 pounds in
the combined tests.
"It's pretty hard to get," Bond said.
"You got to be a well-rounded athlete.
You have to be physically strong and fast."
Lascelle Humphrey, a senior, tied his own
vertical leap record, leading the team with a
jump of 28 inches he also did that in 2008.
Fellow senior Fred Hall tied Keonte
White's 20-yard backpedal record at 3.4 sec-
onds.
White, the team's junior quarterback/de-
fensive back, set that mark last year.


Interestingly, the 5-10 150 lb. speedster
finished with 73 overall points one behind
incoming freshman quarterback Dinton Wil-
lis (74 points).
"The Big Dog testing was successful to
the kids who dedicated themselves through-
out the summer," Bond said.
"You could tell who was focused just
based on how they did last week."
Now, the attention shifts to the football
field, where Moore Haven began its fall prac-
tices Monday afternoon.
The fall classic is tentatively scheduled
for Friday, Aug. 28, with the regular season
slated to begin on Friday, Sep. 4.

pecially as we move later this year into the
county's newest hospital.
The modern facility will feature all private
patient rooms, efficient Emergency Room
care, and large and comfortable labor and
delivery rooms for mothers, newborns and
their families."
Mr. Gibbons detailed some of the tech-
nological advances Lakeside Medical Center
will bring to the region.
A new digital mammography machine,
funded in part by a generous grant from Na-
tional City Bank, along with a Palm Beach
County Department of Housing and Com-
munity Development Block Grant, will en-
able the early detection of breast cancer so it
can be treated more effectively.
Enhancements in the telemetry unit will
allow patients recovering from an illness or
surgery to be monitored in the hospital at all
times, even if they are away from their bed.
Other state-of-the-art initiatives will bring
the patient to the doctor, such as telemedi-
cine, online x-rays and charting-some of
which are already in place.
These features will enable doctors to re-
motely monitor a patient's status and com-
municate instructions to clinical staff from
almost any location.
"The next few years at this hospital will
be very exciting. We have some great op-
portunities to bring specialized services into
Lakeside Medical Center," said Gibbons.
Mr. Gibbons asked Pahokee Rotary Club
members to welcome Dr. Marian Sampson,
who is in practice with Sherida Williams,
M.D., OB/GYN, at Lakeside Medical Center
OB-GYN located in the Glades Medical Pla-
za.
The women's healthcare practice offers
primary care, maternal and women's health
services to the more than 35,000 residents in
the region.
The practice will relocate to Lakeside
Medical Center when the new hospital
opens.
"Patients in our community are very glad
to have female obstetricians/gynecologists,"
Dr. Sampson told the group.
"Women are telling their family and
friends about our practice. I look forward


to meeting many of them to help promote
healthy living and healthy pregnancies."
Dr. Sampson earned her medical degree
from Meharry Medical College in Nashville,
Tennessee and completed residency in ob-
stetrics and gynecology at Bayfront Medical
Center in St. Petersburg, Florida.
She is a recipient of the National Health
Service Corps scholarship, a program that
helps fund the education of doctors who
upon graduation practice in underserved
communities.
Prior to joining Glades General Hospital,
she served as Education Chief Resident at
Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg,
Florida.
"We are pleased that Dr. Sampson is
on staff and is so committed to serving our
community," said Bryan Cross, chair of the
Glades Rural Area Support Board.
"This is just the beginning of our efforts
to recruit talented new physicians to join the
medical staff at Lakeside Medical Center."
Dr. Sampson shared her philosophy that
educating patients in an environment of re-
spect and trust is a top priority in a commu-
nity confronted with complex and chronic
medical issues.
"When I sit with patients, I try to establish
a level of comfort and trust so I can educate
them," she said.
Dr. Sampson and Mr. Gibbons stressed
their commitment to serve the rural com-
munities in western
Palm Beach County in the years to come,
and both said they look forward to improv-
ing the healthcare delivery system with the

Tonsils and Adenoids


- When to take them out


By: Dr. Leonard Carroll
Board Certified General Surgeon
Each person has two tonsils, one on each
side of the back of the throat. They look like
reddish oval-shaped masses and are easy
to see. The adenoids are high in the throat
behind the nose and roof of the mouth and
cannot be seen without special equipment.
The tonsils and adenoids help the body
fight respiratory infections such as colds;
however, when they begin to cause health
problems, tonsils and adenoids can be re-
moved without changing the body's ability
to fight infection. The procedure is relatively
a simple one.
Why would I need to have my tonsils
and/or adenoids removed?
Trouble breathing at night because of
swelling
Snoring
Frequent infections of the tonsils (more
than seven serious infections of the tonsils
in a year or four infections each year for two
consecutive years)
An abscess (build-up of pus) around
one or both tonsils
At the strep carrier state meaning
that strep bacteria are living in the tonsils
and adenoids, and the bacteria are causing
repeated infections or spreading infection to
other people
Difficulty in swallowing
Continued ear problems in children af-
ter the first set of tubes

When should you have your tonsils removed? Be sure you understand exactly
what is involved in the process by consulting with your local doctor.


Fever of 101 degrees (F) or higher as-
sociated with symptoms above
How do you prepare for the tonsillecto-
my and adenoidectomy?
Prior to any surgery, the doctor will give
a complete medical exam and evaluate your
overall health. You may be required to have
lab tests or x-rays. Your doctor will also re-
view the potential risks and benefits of the
operation. It is important that you ask ques-
tions and fully understand the reason for
surgery. Your physician will also provide
specific instructions on how to prepare for
the surgery, including guidelines on eating,
drinking, smoking or avoiding certain medi-
cations.
What are the benefits of this procedure?


The Florida Legislature has approved tremendous fee
increases for all motor vehicle, vessels, driver's licens-
es and most hunting and fishing licenses, effective
SEPTEMBER 1, 2009.

The procedure helps prevent repeated
sore throats, and breathing or swallowing
problems will get better. There is relief from
ongoing ear infections in children.
What are the risks associated with this
type of surgery?
Complications are rare and usually mi-
nor. However, you could experience the
following:
Problems with general anesthesia -
Your surgeon will discuss your prior history
with general anesthesia.
Bleeding As your throat heals, the
scab comes off, and your throat could bleed.
If this happens, spit the blood out.
Soreness in tongue area The device

gery could cause some temporary numb-
ness or soreness in your tongue.
Dehydration You might become dehy-
drated if you are unable to swallow.
What happens during the procedure?
The surgery is usually an outpatient pro-
cedure. Before the operation starts, you will
be given a general anesthetic. This drug will
relax your muscles and cause a deep sleep.
It will prevent you from feeling any pain dur-
ing the surgery.
The surgeon will use a device to keep
your mouth open and expose the tonsils in
the back of your throat. Then the tonsils and
adenoids will be removed. The surgeon may
use stitches or a burning tool (cautery) to
help stop any bleeding. The device used to
keep the mouth open will then be removed.
The procedure typically takes no longer than
15-20 minutes to complete.
What happens afterwards?
More than likely, you will go home on
the day of your surgery; however, depend-
ing on your condition, an overnight hospi-
tal stay could be required. You will have a
sore throat and be uncomfortable for about
seven to ten days. It will hurt to swallow.
You may want to avoid strenuous activity for
about a week.
You don't have to suffer with tonsil or ad-
enoid problems. The operation to remove
them is a very simple one and can normally
be done in any local hospital. For additional
information call 863-983-5026.

The Sale of Florida


How the United States
claimed Florida for its own,
despite overseas protests
and political maneuvering

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The southern towns in Georgia were alive
with activity.
Farmers gathered in groups and talked
excitedly about the Florida land purchase,
while their wives huddled together and
spoke of an easier life they hoped awaited
them in the new territory.
Shady land speculators, like cruising
sharks, moved from town to town scheming
and planning on how to sale the new gov-
ernment acquired lands and get rich quick,
while plantation owners dreamed of the
riches they would make off the vast tracts of
farmland in Florida.
In Florida, the black village stirred to
life when news reached them that an old
foe, the United States, had purchased their
homeland.
A foreboding cloud of anxieties filled
each household as fathers cursed and moth-
ers wept.
Each parent knew that their lives and the
lives of their children might soon belong to
the highest bidder.
The black's only savior was the Florida
Indian, who was now paralyzed by the same
anxieties that his black brother had.
The Florida Indian knew his land and cul-
ture were threatened and that the American
settlers would soon fill the horizon like an
insatiable swarm of land hungry locust.
The purchase of Florida is likened to the
multimillion dollar transactions that take
place across America today.
Some folks benefit big time, while others
lose all.
It is time to take "A Walk in The Past" and
read about the events that lead to the sale
of Florida.
From the day the United States gained
independence from England, it had started
looking at Spanish Florida with covetous
eyes.
The young nation's philosophical con-
cept of westward advancement (Manifest
Destiny) and Spain's waning power in Flor-
ida only whetted the United States appetite
for the rich lands of La Florida.
A land dispute between the two nations
occurred when territories claimed by the
United States in the Louisiana Purchase of
1803 were contested.
Spain maintained that the strip of land ex-
tending east from the Mississippi River along
the Gulf Coast to the Perdido River (located
in present day West Florida) was still a Span-
ish procession.
The Louisiana Purchase dispute was just
the first in a chain of events that would even-
tually forced Spain to sell La Florida to the
United States.
In 1804, the Kempers brothers attempt-
ed to expel the Spanish from West Florida,
which at that time extended to the Missis-
sippi River.


The rebellion failed, but it caught the at-
tention of President Thomas Jefferson, who
urged Congress to pass the Mobile Act.
In 1804, Congress passed the Mobile Act,
which recognized West Florida as part of
the Louisiana Purchase, hence part of the
United States.
Spain was enraged and refused to accept
such political heresy.
Prior to this diplomatic crisis, white set-
tlers had been moving into West Florida, in-
cluding land speculators, who had question-
able character and intentions.
By 1810, many of the white Americans
who had settled in Spanish West Florida
wanted independence from Spain.
On December 10, 1810, rebels raised a
flag over Baton Rouge and declared a free
and independent nation called the Republic
of West Florida.
The republic passed into history just 74
days after it came into existence because the
United States wanted the territory.
Months later, President Madison issued a
proclamation directing the American gover-
nor of the Territory of Orleans (later the state
of Louisiana) to take possession of West
Florida.
Spain contested, but to no avail.
In 1811, Congress with the support of
President Madison, passed a secret act to ac-
quisition East Florida.
Madison appointed former Georgia gov-
ernor, General George Mathews, who origi-
nally concocted the plan, to lead an Ameri-
can force of Georgia frontiersmen into East
Florida and declare it a new republic.
The United States planned to annex the
new republic.
Its excuse for invading was to protect
East Florida rebellions against Spanish op-
pression.
There was never justification for the inva-
sion because no revolts or oppressions were
taking place in Florida.
The revolts were only a ploy for the Unit-
ed States to have cause to invade Florida.
The invasion became known as the Pa-
triots War.
The Georgia force with the aid of the U.S.
Navy, took possession of Fernandina and
Amelia Island, but failed to take St. Augus-
tine.
The invasion wasn't popular in the north-
ern states, so President Madison received an
unhappy outcry from the American public.
He publicly "repudiated the seizure of
East Florida" to protect his political career,
while secretly replacing General George
Mathews with Georgia Governor David
Byrdie Mitchell, who later became the Creek
Indian Agent.
In 1812, the United States declared war
on England.
The War of 1812 ushered in a strongly
needed ally for Spain because England
wanted the Florida territories as a staging
ground for military operations against the
United States.
An unofficial partnership was formed be-
hind closed doors by nations that had fought
on and off for the last century.

History
Continued From Page 8

later grew to the Creek War (1813 to 1814),
gave additional support to English plans in
Florida because England promised Indian
nations protection from encroaching Ameri-
can settlers, if they agreed to fight against the
United States.
Indians from Canada down to Span-
ish Florida joined the British with hopes of
preserving their lands and culture from the
American settler's ever westward invasion.
The British also promised black slaves
freedom, if they joined the British army.
Many black slaves living in the South, fled
to Florida for freedom and joined the British
army.
England hoped to build a black army of
5,000 in Florida, plus a strong force of hostile
Indians.
The combined forces would invade the
South and spread terror to its white inhabit-
ants.
Such a plan would spread revolt among
the South's enslaved blacks and help bring
an earlier closure to the war for England.
The black invasion never came to pass
because Andrew Jackson defeated hostile
Creek Indians at Horseshoe Bend, captured
the city of Pensacola and defeated the Eng-
lish in the Battle of New Orleans.
The Treaty of Ghent ended the War of
1812, and by 1815 had removed England,
Spain's powerful ally from Florida.
Like an old and worn lion, Spain now
faced its challenger, the United States, a vig-
orous young lion that longed to sink its ivo-
ries into East Florida.
The United States wanted La Florida for
its land, but also to dispel the breeding and
brewing political ideologies that were not
conducive to Southern culture.
Spanish Florida had become a haven for
runaway slaves, black militia and hostile
Indians, so the people living in the South
weren't happy.
A black fort, militia and town 60 miles
from Georgia territory, was more than south-
ern slaveholders could handle.
It was the proverbial straw that broke the
camel's back because the Negro Fort and its
inhabitants were seen as a conspiracy to the
institution of slavery.
The fort represented a ripe revolution that
must be quelled before a tempest arose and
ran rampant in the South.
A growing black populace and hostile In-
dians sympathetic to the black's cause gave
the United States the justification it needed
to invade Spanish Florida.
The destruction of the Negro Fort on
the Apalachicola River was incurred by the
South's fear of a slave uprising and the slave-
holder's loss of runaway slaves that sought
refuge at the fort.
Further confrontations with the Indians
and blacks would lead to another invasion
that became known as the First Seminole


Indian War.
It started in 1817 and ended in 1819, with
the United States as victor.
General Andrew Jackson set and achieved
military objectives in the Seminole War that
left a bewildered Spain and England in his
wake.
Jackson's military exploits put Spain in a
dilemma because not only had the United
States acted as an aggressor and invaded
Spanish territory, but it had installed a gov-
ernor over East Florida.
The handwriting was on the wall, and
Spain succumbed to the inevitable.
In 1819, the Adams-Onis Treaty was
drawn up by Spain and the United States.
In the agreement the United States relin-
quished claims to parts of Texas and agreed
to pay Spain $5 million, for the territorial
rights to Spanish Florida.
Spain ratified the treaty in 1820 and the
United States ratified it in 1821.
The United States now owned the long
sought prize, La Florida
The nation was happy as it once again
expanded its national boundaries.
Georgia was especially pleased with the
annexation of Florida because its citizens
needed more elbow room and La Florida
was next door.
Today our nation faces so many mon-
etary uncertainties, which puts us at loss
when we attempt to make sound financial
decisions.
However, our problems are small when
compared to the enormous loss the blacks
and Indians must have felt when Spain sold
Florida to their enemy the United States.
The blacks knew that the liberties they
had enjoyed under the Spanish and British
were gone and that they were threatened
with a life of slavery.
The Indian plight was also gloomy.
They faced a foe that had recently flexed
its muscles in a show of arms and soundly
defeated them,
What future did they face with the Geor-
gia citizenry stampeding into Florida?

12 Clewiston News Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 13, 2009


Future Farmers of



America in Action


School may be out but that does not
make a difference to the members of the
Clewiston FFA Chapter. For them, the job
does not end when that last bell rings. In-
stead, they have been keeping busy trying
to improve themselves and their chapter.
This summer, a group of thirteen FFA
members from Clewiston High attended
the 81st Florida FFA State Convention and
Leadership Conference from June 8th to
June 13. Along with them were their Agri-
science teacher/FFA Advisor, Mr. Swindle,
and gracious chaperon, Rita Thompson.
They represented their Clewiston Chapter
with pride and dignity.
Wanting to make the most of their expe-
rience, they took advantage of the multiple
leadership sessions and workshops. They
gained valuable information from running
more efficient meetings to helping save the
environment. At one session there was a
special guest speaker, Jeff Yalden, known
by MTV's MADE. He was an instant inspi-
ration as he told his life story. Listeners
where captivated by the emotion he ex-
pressed while telling of his struggles and
awed by his efforts to turn those struggles
into a positive learning experience for FFA's
youth.
Also, the Clewiston FFA Chapter received
the National Chapter Award. The National


Chapter Award is awarded to FFA chapters
who actively implement the mission and
strategies of the organization, which is
dedicated to making a positive difference
in the lives of students by developing their
potential for premier leadership, personal
growth and career success through agricul-
tural education. In the state of Florida, only
19 chapters receive this reward of roughly
400 chapters. Also, Richard Howell, gradu-
ating senior, was recognized for being a
State Finalist for his SAE in Metal Fabrica-
tion. Clewiston was also honored to have
five members receive State FFA Degree
which is the highest degree that can be
awarded on the state level. The five recipi-
ents were Richard Howell, Katie Whidden,
Michelle Langston, Maria Teixeira, and Ra-
chelle Spry.
As the week progressed, the members
met new students from many different
chapters across the state of Florida and
continued in expanding their horizons.
Aside from their own meetings through-
out the summer, the Clewiston FFA Chap-
ter attended the School Board meeting
July 14. The School Board members took
time from their busy schedule to recognize
Clewiston FFA Chapter for their hard work
and accomplishments for the 2008-2009
school year.

School briefs


Free lunch
Hendry County Schools offer Breakfast
at no charge to all of their students, every
school day. Breakfast times may vary from
school to school, so check with your child's
school office for the time schedule. Break-
fast is the most important meal and needs
to be a part if your child's educational day.


The National School Breakfast Program was
enacted to ensure that school children are
being served a nutritious breakfast daily.
Studies have proven that higher academic
and social achievement occur when break-
fast is consumed. Make sure that your child
starts off his day right with breakfast at Hen-
dry County Schools.

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Throughout His teachings, Jesus com-
mented numerous times, "He who has ears
to hear, let him hear."
In Mark 18, Jesus got even more specific
when He asked, "Do you have eyes but fail
to see, and ears but fail to hear?"
It's a good question for all of us to con-
sider.
Steven Morris was a special needs blind
child in Mrs. Bernaducci's class.
His handicap negatively impacted his
self esteem.
However, over a period of time, the
teacher realized that Steven had exceptional
hearing.
One day she put the class mascot, a
mouse, into the trash can.
The scratching noise created a minor
panic until Steven located the mouse.
Mrs. Bernaducci exclaimed: "Steven, you
are truly a wonder."
The nickname caught on.
The next year little Stevie Wonder, full of
a sense of his own value, began playing the
piano.
Stevie 'Wonder' would go on to influence
and change American music in part because
of Mrs. Bernaducci's faith and encourage-
ment for him to use his ability to listen and
apply it.
Those who have ears, let them hear.
An American Indian was in downtown


New York, walking with his friend who lived
in New York City.
Suddenly he said, "I hear a cricket."
"Oh, you're crazy," his friend replied.
"No, I hear a cricket. I do! I'm sure of it."
"It's the noon hour. There are people
bustling around, cars honking, taxis squeal-
ing, noises from the city. I'm sure you can't
hear it."
"I'm sure I do," came the reply.
The Cherokee listened attentively and
then walked to the corner, across the street,
and looked around.
Finally on the corner he found a shrub in
a large cement planter.
He dug beneath the leaves and found a
cricket.
His friend was astounded.
But the Cherokee said, "No. My ears are
no different than yours. It simply depends on
what you are listening to. Here let me show
you."
He reached into his pocket and pulled
out a handful of change-a few quarters,
some nickels, and pennies.
Then he dropped them on the concrete.
Every head within a block turned.
"You see what I mean?" he said as he be-
gan picking up his coins.
"It all depends on what you are listening
for."
Not only must we as Christians have "ears
to hear"(Matt. 13:9), but we must learn what
to listen for.
Those who have ears, let them hear.


A person of conviction
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
God's people have always been people
of conviction.
Abraham believed God, though he lived
in the midst of an idolatrous and wealthy
people.
He left his home and old time friends be-
cause of his convictions that God promises
in Genesis 12:4 was true.
Joseph was a man of conviction even in
Potiphar's house (Genesis 12:4).
His boss was a heathen, and he was sur-
rounded by Egyptians who were wealthy
and unbelievers in his God, but to the man
of conviction, it did not matter.
In jail, his faith and convictions did not
waver (Gen. 39:20-23).
And when he became Secretary of State,
his convictions did not waver (Gen. 41:38).
Moses resisted slavery single-handed
(Exodus 2:11-18) believing in the God who
had foretold that they should be given their
freedom.
He fled across trackless and wasted des-
ert because of his conviction.
Then, when God called, he came back
to the land where he was a fugitive to face
Pharoah, all because he was a man of con-
viction (Exodus 5:10).
Only a man of deepest convictions would
be willing to take the thousands of slaves
and lead them for forty years in a wilderness,

facing troubles, trials, fighting, and evil pub-
lic sentiment,
Moses believed God; he had convictions!
The faith had not died, but rose to great
heights in the life of Joshua (Joshua 24:14-
15).
Others might fail, but for Joshua and his
house, they would serve Jehovah.
That is conviction!
The Judges were men of conviction as
seen in Othneil, Ehud, Shamgar, Barak and
Deborah, Gideon, Jephthah, Elon, Abdon,
Samson, and the great Samuel.
They fought battles against great odds
and came through the fray victorious be-
cause of their faith- genuine conviction.
David stood against Saul and the whole
northern ten tribes because of his conviction
until he became king as God had ordained.
Elijah, in the midst of idolatry and rotten
politicians who had taken over his beloved
Israel, stood for God and faithfully called the
people back to repentance because he was
a man of conviction.
Jesus "steadfastly set his face toward Je-
rusalem."
Conviction!
Peter, because of his convictions, we are
told, was crucified upside down.
Paul, the grizzled old warrior, said,
"Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit ye like
men, be strong."
These men were the forerunners of mar-
tyrs who died, numbering in the millions.
Great People of Conviction!
It has never been popular to have convic-
tions and to stand by them.
Let's pray that God will raise up in these
troubled times people of rock ribbed convic-
tion.
People who know what the believe and
why they believe it and live as people of con-
viction!

The image and the reality of
it all; Reality is better!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
In the midst of their turmoil and fighting,
I would meet with a couple that had recently


re-married.
The husband told me one day "This
is harder than I imagined, different than I
planned."
I concurred; "Yes, it is different than you
imagined but the blessings can be better
than you have imagined or experienced be-
fore, too."
A mother told me about her daughter
who always dreamed of becoming a nurse.
She imagined herself in a white uniform,
going about doing good things, and helping
people get better.
Two weeks into nursing school and she
came home; it was not all white uniforms
and people weren't always grateful for what
you did.
Reality was different than imagined and
she found herself a new career.
Those who "stuck it out" found that the
images were different than imagined; but
by staying with it, they could do something
meaningful and wonderful in people's lives
at times when it made a real difference.
A ministerial student that I mentored had
"ducked" taking a clinical training program.
I insisted he complete it as a part of his
preparation and told him that it would be
beneficial in his future ministry.
It was a real challenge for him, and at one
point he got up and left the program -walk-
ing around the city streets for several hours
before returning to complete it.
Later, the training provided by that pro-
gram gave him a direction and he special-
ized in a ministry among people with seri-
ous problems.
Ministry was different than he originally
perceived it to be; and by returning after
almost quitting, a newer, deeper and more
meaningful vocation came out of it.
The Lord is surrounded by followers
who have an image of His feeding them, or
healing their infirmities, or doing what they
wished.
He fed the five thousand (John 6:1ff) and
then left the crowd to go off by Himself but
they follow Him (v.24).
The people are surprised and ask Him
"When did you get here?"
His answer has stood for eternity; "I tell
you the truth, you are looking for me not
because you saw miraculous signs, but be-
cause you ate loaves and had your fill."
Jesus is telling them that it is different
than they imagined; He did not come to set
up a welfare program or to provide their ev-
ery need.


The image they had of His ministry is dif-
ferent than the reality, joy and blessings of
believing.
The gifts of God are more subtle, more
demanding of us at times, but they are more
lasting and better than ever imagined.
Jesus tells the crowds "Do not work for
food that spoils but for food that endures to
eternal life(v. 27).
That's it the gifts of God require work
on our part, but they last and are more satis-
fying in the long run.
The rose garden is beautiful but a lot of
work!
So is the Garden of Eden.
They're worth it after all.

Steve McKown new Clewiston


Reade dropped from city
manager selection

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Richard Reade was for-
mally dropped from consideration for the
city manager position last week. The deci-
sion was made after city officials were un-
able to come to an agreement with him re-
garding his contract.
Commissioners expressed some frustra-
tion at a number of requests on Mr. Reade's
part, specifically an indemnity clause which
the city attorney felt strongly in opposition
of.
The city has now signed a contract with
the next finalist, Steve McKown, of Georgia,

We experienced another increase at 6.3
percent in 2008.
Sheriff Whidden stated, "I am very en-
couraged by these statistics and I can only
contribute this accomplishment to the hard
work and dedication of our officers and sup-
port personnel.
Each day we battle budgetary shortfalls,


for the position. Mr. McKown is expected to
begin his job on Aug. 31.
Despite saying that he was excited about
the opportunity of leading the city during a
July 20 meeting adding that he did not think
anything existed that could stop the contract
negotiations -- Mr. Reade and the city were
unable to reach an agreement on the clause
and at least one additional matter.
According to the minutes of the July 30
city meeting, Don Gutshall, interim city man-
ager, informed commissioners that the city
and Mr. Reade had reached an impasse,
despite the city making a favorable contract
offer.
Charles Shoech, city attorney, said that
seven issues were highlighted by Mr. Reade
in his contract as needing clarification or
changes made to.

but our personnel persevere. I am very
proud of them.
"I would also like to credit the citizens
of Hendry County with their help, watchful
eyes and willingness to protect their com-
munity.
It is because of this proactive partnership
that we are able to solve many crimes.
It is my intention and pledge, to you, to
continue to work hard to protect everyone
who either lives in or visits Hendry County."


Mr. Reade had requested a t
6-month severance package, while
was only prepared to offer a one-ye

of the great work being done with the pro-
gram.
Sgt. Spence, who is no longer an advisor
to the explorers, but remains affiliated with
the program, said he benefited much from
having participated in his local explorers
program in Ft. Myers as a high school stu-
dent.
"It's a program where you learn by doing.
Kids receive positive motivation and their re-
quired to keep their grades up in school," he
said.
Unlike other programs around the state,
Sgt. Spence said his program whether un-
fortunately or fortunately -- does not draw
funding from the police department. Be-
cause each member wears a uniform that


closely resembles what an officer would
wear, and to support trips and other costs,
the explorers rely on fundraisers to pay for
the program.
One example is the upcoming Co-Ed
Softball Tournament. Community members
can participate in the tournament, and feel
good about where the money is going.
While both Spence and Colburn remain
proud of their explorers' accomplishments,
they nevertheless encourage any high
school-aged student with an interest in the
field to join. Members as young as 14 and as
old as 21 fill the ranks of the explorer's pro-
gram, and at one point as many as 25 kids
participated.
"They're an inspiration," Detective Col-
burn said of his students. "I enjoy working
with them."

tournament, call 634-0735.
