Weekend boating


tragedies a harsh


reminder about safety


September 17, 2009


The deaths of six people in three separate
boating-related accidents in Florida during
the Labor Dayweekend are a stark reminder
that the need to practice safe boating is as
critical as ever.
Three people died Friday night when two
vessels collided near Brooks Bridge at Fort
Walton Beach.
Two of the victims were from Alabama,
the other from Texas.
On Saturday, three others died, including
a father and son from Tequesta who were
bass fishing in Lake Okeechobee.
Later in the day, an Alabama man died
after the family fishing boat capsized in the
Gulf of Mexico off Indian Pass in Gulf Coun-
ty.
"It's quite likely that not one of those who
died this past weekend ever thought some
thing like that would happen to them," said
Capt. Richard Moore of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC)
Division of Law Enforcement.
"Too many people who enjoy boating in
Florida think the same thing."
Although the causes vary, many of Flor-
ida's boating accidents involve a collision
with another vessel or object, such as a
bridge piling, navigation buoy or even the
shoreline.
The FWC's boating safety staff say boat
operators must maintain 360-degree situ-
ational awareness to avoid dangerous and
potentially deadly situations.
Passengers can help by alerting the op
erator to anything that might be in the path
of their boat.
If there is one thing boaters can do to
make themselves more safe, it's wearing a
life jacket.
An estimated 60 percent of all people
who die in boating accidents would have
survived if they wore a life jacket.
No one on any of the boats involved in
the three incidents over the weekend wore
a life jacket.
A variety of life jackets are available to
boaters, including newer styles of inflatable
models that are much smaller, lighter and
more comfortable to wear than traditional
vest life jackets.
One new style, the belt pack, goes around
the waist.
A suspender style also is available.
Some of these models activate automati-
cally if the wearer falls into the water. Under
the laws of most states, the inflatable mod-


els must be worn to count as a life jacket.
In other words, just having them in the
boat is not enough.
"There isn't a better place to enjoy boat-
ing than here in Florida, and we get to enjoy
the water year round," Moore said.
"But, something that much fun can
quickly turn to tragedy if we let our guard
down."
During Florida's Labor Day holiday week-
end in 2008, no lives were lost in boating ac-
cidents.
So far in 2009, Florida has lost 52 people
in boating accidents, and probably all of
those could have been prevented, Moore
said.

King's Academy Lions out roar Clewiston Tigers


By Jeff Barwick
Again, Clewiston could not advance the
ball on the ground and. junior quarterback
Andres Rios was forced into constant pass-
ing situations.
With the wet grounds and a blitzing Li-
ons defense, the passing results were no bet
ter than the rushing effort. The Lions took a
punt near midfield and needed only 5 plays
to score with Miller hitting Williams on a 35
yard pass to score with 2:12 remaining in the
half.
Clewiston took the following kickoff and
went back to the passing game and Rios got
intercepted by cornerback Gage Batten at
the Lions 41 yard line. King's drove to the
Tiger 12 in 3 quick plays but had to go to
Ortiz on a 30 yard field goal try as time was
running out. The attempt barely missed and
Clewiston trailed by 16 points at the inter-
mission.
The third quarter saw a better defensive
performance by Clewiston as they held
the Lions scoreless. On offense, the Tigers
finally got a drive going and drove to the
King's Academy 11 before Rios was hit on
a passing attempt and dropped the ball. The
Lions quickly pounced on the loose pigskin
as the third period was drawing to a close.
Two plays later, the Tigers returned the favor
when defensive end Julio Ramos recovered
a Miller fumble on the Lions 19.
Despite a King's Academy off side penalty
to help, the Tigers could not move the ball
past the Lions 18 and turned the ball over on

downs, and killed the Tigers only real scor-
ing opportunities of the evening.
In the final period, the Lions returned to
their ball and clock controlling offense and
engineered a 13-play, 82 yard drive with
Clewiston hosted Class 1A King's Academy
on Friday night and, at least for the Tigers,
all the fireworks happened before the game
began. The Class 1A Lions improved their
season record to 2-0 as they whipped the
Tigers by a 22-0 score in a game that had
a 90-minute start delay due to lightning that
followed a torrential rainstorm.
The Lions won the toss and took the
opening kickoff and proceeded with a 15-
play, 77 yard scoring drive that consumed
over 8 minutes from the first period. They
scored when quarterback Mike Miller hand-
ed the ball off to flanker Brian Grove on
an apparent reverse. But Grove pulled up,
turned and threw a strike to Miller who had
streaked into the corner of the end zone.
On the Tigers first snap, freshman tailback
Virthavious Robinson went off left tackle for
a quick 20 yard gain but that would be the
Tigers last large gain until their final drive of
the contest. The Lions quickly shut down the
opening Tiger drive and forced a punt. The
Clewiston defense stripped the ball from Li-
ons runner lan Williams and Tyree Wilson
recovered the ball at the Tiger 25, stifling a
Lions scoring drive.
But the Tigers went 3 and out without a
positive yardage play in the series and King's
Academy returned the punt to the Tiger 33.


After several close calls on giving up a score,
the Tiger defense forced the Lions into field
goal formation and kicker Andrew Ortiz
nailed a 36-yarder to advance the Lions lead
to 9-0.
Fullback Ryan Dowling scoring from 2
yard out with 1:12 remaining in the game.
Clewiston, with their record dropping
to 0-2, gave the hometown crowd little to
cheer about, other than their third period
drive, as they got beat both offensively and
defensively.
The offensive and defensive lines were
not effective and the Tigers were trying to
tackle with too many hands and not enough
shoulders. The results were not pretty as the
Lions running backs slipped through those
hands and just kept racking up more yards.
Tiger freshman tailback Virthavious Rob-
inson rushed for 72 yards on 10 attempts.
Andres Rios completed 2 of 8 passing
attempts with one interception as the Li
ons were constantly in his face most of the
game.
Senior cornerback Damion Smith led
the defense with 7 solo tackles and he also
turned in 73 yards on two punt returns. From
his linebacker position, Robinson chipped in
with 6 tackles, 2 assists and a quarterback
sack for a loss of 9 yards.
As the Tiger return specialist, Smith had
48 and 25-yard kick returns and a 21-yard
punt return. On the 48 yard effort, he had
only one Lion to beat for the score but got
caught from behind as he slowed to maneu-


ver around the defender.
Things get no easier for the Tigers this
week as they must head to Belle Glade to
take on the rival Glades Day Gators who are
undefeated and have been impressive, led
by freshman running back Kelvin Taylor.
The Tigers are still without the services
of starting center and linebacker Dillon Irey
who will likely miss at least this coming
game due to a severe leg injury and shoul-
der surgery. Defensive lineman Antonio Wil-
liams will hopefully be released from medi-
cal hold due to a knee injury and return for
this game.

Moore Haven launches Pop Warner football program


By Naji Tobias
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN For the first time in 33
years, Glades County has a youth football
team.
Johnnie Brown, head coach of the Mighty
Terriers 75 lb. class, was just 8-years-old the
last time Moore Haven fielded a team like
this. If one would just come out to any of
Moore Haven's Pop Warner practices, you
would see all the excitement and buzz from
the young players, coaches, parents and fans
alike. It's certainly made Brown very happy,
to say the least.
"It's been a very long time since these
kids have been excited about football,"
Brown said. "When you think about it, ev
ery team around us, like Pahokee, Clewis
ton and Belle Glade, has a feeder program.
That's why they're so successful at what
they do."
For one thing, Brown has put the Moore
Haven Mighty Terriers football program in
perspective. Simply put, his vision is to give
Moore Haven's young boys an opportunity
that he and his coaching staff didn't have.
And that's having a stable youth football
program.
"Putting these young kids together has al-
lowed us to overcome a lot of obstacles this
city has had to face over the years," Brown
said. "We've been looking forward to this
for a long time and now it has come."
The Mighty Terriers have two youth
teams. The 75 lb.-and-under class, ranging
from 6 to 9 years old, fields 23 young players,
including Garrett Palladino, a cornerback
and fullback for the younger team.
The older group, meanwhile, features 22
players who are listed at 125 lbs. and under.
Those young boys range from 9- to 12-
years-old. To Brown and his coaching staff,
it's not all about wins at least for the pro-
gram's first year of existence.
It's about fundamentals, discipline and
the desire just to play the game of football,
something almost everyone in Glades Coun-
ty believes was lacking here for quite some
time.
First game
Saturday, Sep. 12 will be a day that no
one affiliated with the Mighty Terriers will
ever forget. At about 7 a.m., program sup-
porters, including cheerleaders, loaded up
two school buses en route to Fort Pierce for
their first Pop Warner game in many years.
About 200 people from Moore Haven
made the 90-minute trek northeast to Lawn-
wood Stadium, where the Mighty Terriers
would compete against the Ft. Pierce Buc-
caneers.
One of the biggest fans of this budding
program may be, perhaps, Stuart Whiddon,
the Glades County Sheriff.
His law enforcement office reportedly
paid for the expenses to travel to Ft. Pierce
over the weekend.
"The sheriff is definitely a kid's advocate,"
Brown said of Whiddon. "What the Glades
County Sheriff's Office has done for us is
monumental."
For most people, a bus ride to an away
game is just that. But for Moore Haven, this
was every different


"It felt like we were going to the state
championship game for the first time,"
Brown said of Moore Haven, who's high
school football team has never reached a
state title game in its history.
To the surprise of Ft. Pierce, perhaps,
Moore Haven's 75 lb. group posted a 21-0
shutout win last Saturday.
At 1-0, it feels like Moore Haven has just
won a state title. In actuality, it's a double
win in the fact a football team has been
formed and that Moore Haven now has a
promising future as far as athletics is con-
cerned.
John Cox scored two rushing touch
downs for the Mighty Terriers, while Jacob
Smith added another one to seal the victory.
Led by Garrett [Palladino], the Mighty Terri-
ers defense did not give up a first down.
In addition, Garrett snagged an intercep-
tion in the landmark game the first in pro-
gram history.
"Our boys played some real ball out
there," said Julie Palladino, Garrett's moth
er. "I was too busy jumping up and down
as we made history in this game. It was an
excitement we've never had in Moore Ha-
ven. Words can't describe how I'm feeling
right now."
Though the 125 lb. group lost 41-0 to Ft.
Pierce in the later game, it did not, in any
way, put a dent in this experience.
With Moore Haven in the Fed Ex Orange
Bowl league, the Mighty Terriers will get an
opportunity to play some of the best Pop
Warner teams in the state.
That includes the Pahokee Baby Blue
Devils and the Glades Glen Browns, to name
just two. And Moore Haven may even face
off against Pahokee this weekend, pending
a schedule confirmation by the coaching
staff.
It suits Brown just fine, with a wide grin
on display as he talks about the Mighty Terri-

Glades Day triumphs in homecoming win


Pahokee, Glades Central
and Moore Haven score
blowout victories

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE In what was set up to be
a close game, the Glades Day Gators made
it anything but. For almost three quarters,
Dade Christian (Miami) hung tight in Glades
Day's homecoming game.
But after a third-quarter interception re-
turn by Glades Day junior defensive back
Eaton Spence, it was off to the races from
there.
The Glades Day faithful had much to
cheer about, especially after Tanner Redish,
a budding sophomore quarterback, lobbed
a 66-yard touchdown pass to junior wideout
Davonte Allen (3 catches, 75 yards) with
4:52 left in the third.
The score, set up by Spence's intercep-
tion, put Glades Day up 16-7 on the Crusad-
ers. From there, they never looked back, as
Glades Day scored three more touchdowns
in the second half for a 36-7 blowout win.
Crusaders head coach Mike Sonnborne,
in his fifth year at the helm, spoke on the
game-changing play.
"It hurt us and it broke our backs a little
bit," Sonnborne said.
Kelvin Taylor, Glades Day's phenom
freshman running back, registered 22 car-
ries for 240 yards and three touchdowns in
the game.
Taylor's second score, set up by Spence's
42-yard punt return later in the third quar-
ter, sealed Dade Christian's fate as he sim-
ply walked into the end zone on his 26-yard
run.
Though Taylor scored three touchdowns
- he's now at 376 yards and six touchdowns
in just two games he was not the only run-
ning back who contributed to this win.
Glades Day's Roshard Burney, a sopho-
more, started in place of Taylor, who had
to sit out the first two offensive drives of the
game. Burney had eight carries for 74 yards,
giving Glades Day a formidable tandem at
the running back position.
In addition, Joe Jenco, Glades Day's se
nior fullback, scored the game's final touch
down, a 4-yard run with 1:28 left in the
fourth. Jenco finished with five carries for 28
yards. In all, Glades Day had 348 total rush-
ing yards (472 overall).
"We played a nearly flawless second
half," said Pete Walker, Glades Day's head
coach. "There was a lot of intensity on both
sides of the ball."
Sonnborne on Glades Day's win:
"For two and a half quarters, we played
phenomenal football, but Glades Day's
depth caught up with us," Sonnborne said
of Dade Christian, a team with just six se-
niors of its 35-man roster. "They just wore
us down in the second half and that was the
difference."
Notes: Redish was 5-for-13 passing with
124 yards, a touchdown and no turnovers.
Clint Johnson, a senior defensive back,
caught the first of Glades Day's two intercep
tions in the first half.
Dade Christian quarterback Bilal Marshal,


a sophomore, put his team up 7-3 in the first
quarter on a 48 yard touchdown strike to fel
low sophomore Ryan Janvion.
Marshal went 12-for-26 with 164 yards, a
touchdown and two interceptions.
Dade Christian was limited to 57 rushing
yards and 221 total, an indicator of Glades
Day's overall improvement on defense from
the past two years. Glades Day had 16 first
downs in the game, while Dade Christian
had 10. Glades Day (2-0) will play at home
tomorrow night against Clewiston, who de-
feated them 30-24 last year.
Pahokee 45, Inlet Grove 0:
De'Joshua Johnson scored three touch-
downs in the first half, including a 59-yard
pass from Blue Devils junior Emanuel Perez
in the blowout win.
Johnson, who split time with Perez at
quarterback, threw an 80-yard touchdown
pass to his favorite target, Chris Dunkley, in
the third quarter.
Johnson, now a triple threat on offense,
was 6-for-11 passing with 137 yards and a
touchdown.
He also had two rushes for 32 yards (both
touchdowns), while adding two receptions
for 69 yards (one of which was a score).
For the game, Johnson accounted for 238
of Pahokee's 571 total yards.
Dunkley led Palm Beach County with six
receptions for 144 yards and a touchdown in
Week 2. Wardell Coleman, who may emerge
as Pahokee's starting running back for the
season, scored a 4-yard rushing touchdown
in the third his first of the season.
Coleman, who, like fellow teammate
Fred Pickett, is a Glades Central transfer, fin
ished with eight carries for 105 yards.
Perez was 12-for-16 passing with 200
yards and two touchdowns, one of which
was to Zachary Alien in the fourth quarter,
a 40-yard pass. Pahokee (2-0) plays its next
game against Dwyer at home tomorrow
night.
In what is deemed Florida's top game
of the week, as determined by Rivals.com,
both teams have much at stake in this highly
anticipated contest. Dwyer, which lost to
Glades Central, 21-7, in Week 1, does not
want to lose to two Muck teams for the third
year in a row.
Pahokee, nationally ranked at No. 16 in
the Rivals100, defeated Dwyer in the 2007
and 2008 spring football games, 14-3 and
18-7, respectively.
Glades Central 50, Palm Beach Cen-
tral 0: Jamorris 'Mario' Rowland anchored
the Raiders defense with a 25 yard inter
ception return for a touchdown in the first
quarter. Antwon Chisolm (nine carries, 113
yards) scored two touchdowns, while L.J.
Thomas (4-for-12, 105 yards) threw for two
touchdowns in the game.
Kevin Benjamin and Greg Dent each
caught Thomas's touchdown passes, while
Neville Brown and Carlton Lewis accounted
for Glades Central's final scores of the game.
Glades Central (2-0) travels to Delray Beach
tomorrow night in a game against American
Heritage. This contest pits Willie Bueno,
American Heritage's head coach, against his
former team, who he led to the 2000 Class
3A state title.
Moore Haven 53, Berean Christian
24: Fred Hall rushed for 250 yards and six


touchdowns in the Terriers home win.
In just two games, Hall has amassed 449
rushing yards and nine touchdowns on the
ground. Keonte White led Moore Haven's
passing attack 89 yards and a touchdown
to Terry Hallback.
Moore Haven (2-0) limited Berean Chris
tian, who was favored to win this game, to
259 total yards. The Terriers defense was led
by Hallback, who registered a 16-yard inter-
ception return for a touchdown.
Moore Haven travels to West Palm Beach
tomorrow night in a game with Summit
Christian.

Beef '0' Brady's and HRMC work t(

Tuesday fundraiser to help
hospital runs through sum-
mer


While the summer months may be tra-
ditionally a slower time for restaurants in
Clewiston, one team from a local business
offered their help to a worthy cause.
For the second consecutive year, Randy
and Kersten Maxon, owners of Beef 'O' Bra-
dy's in Clewiston, played a great part in sup-
porting the Hendry Regional Medical Center
Foundation.
The hospital foundation, a 501 (c)(3)
charitable organization, is set up to raise
funds for special projects of Hendry Region-
al Medical Center.
It focuses primarily on fundraising efforts,
and 100 percent of the money acquired
through the foundation is invested back into
the hospital.
Every Tuesday during the months of June,
July and August, the restaurant donated 15
percent of each designated food purchase
toward the foundation.
All customers had to do was simply let
their servers know they would like to help
the foundation, and Beef 'O' Brady's ear-
marked the funds.
The Maxsons also posted brick flyers
below each television set, so that while cus-
tomers watched their favorite sports show,
they could also see the information about
the foundation's brick sale campaign. (The

For burly men: When wearing a dress is necessary


Two men battle to see who
will don women's wear

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
Denix Lopez seems excited by the pros-
pect of seeing another man wear a dress.
You see, this isn't just any man who might
have to don a cute little number and sashay
for Mr. Lopez and the boys at the local Ad-
vance Auto Parts store in Clewiston.
No, this is Mike Anderson, a person Mr.
Lopez happily describes as "a big guy with a
tongue piercing and everything."
The two, store manager and his right
hand-man, find themselves in a vicious con-
test to see who can raise more money for a
very worthwhile cause -- the Juvenile Diabe-
tes Research Foundation (JDRF).
While the two become lost in heated
combat, their store has rocketed to the top
of the fundraising effort, and was recently
recognized as the store which has raised the
most money for the effort company-wide.
This means that store No. 9168 in Clewis-
ton has beat out more than 3,500 Advance
Auto Parts stores across the country in raise
ing money for Diabetes research.
"We're beating stores in New York, Chi-
cago, Philadelphia and Miami," Mr. Lopez
said.
In just a few weeks' time, the store has
raised, as of Monday, $5,279.
This is the 16th year that Advance Auto
Parts has participated in raising money for
JDRF. The company's goal is to raise $3 mil-
lion by the end of this year's campaign.
According to JDRF, its mission is to con-
tinue its position as the largest charitable

Gutjahr is
the Owner/Broker in Charge of Rawls Real

In addition to her work with Goodwill,


To raise money, Advance Auto Parts
stores throughout the country offer custom
ers a chance to purchase "sneakers" for $1
or $5 each. The little pieces of brightly col-
ored papers with the name of the person
donating are placed around the store.
Clewiston's store seems like it's been tak-
en over by the sneakers, and employees can
be found most days proudly placing more
sneakers throughout the building.
Very few people they have approached


Gutjahr holds several other director posi-
tions, including the Hendry and Glades
County Economic Development Councils
and The Rotary Club of Clewiston.
In total, Goodwill has welcomed four
directors to its board in 2009: Michael R.
McKinley, Esquire, of Punta Gorda, and
Carolyn S. Green and Tami Hirshberg, both
of Fort Myers, have also joined the organi
zation's Board of Directors this year.

perhaps another duel partner by saying, "La-
Belle is slacking a little behind. That's our
next neighboring store. They have $1,225."
With the sale of sneakers slowing, though,
the guys at the store have been coming up
with ways of keeping up the momentum.
"We're doing creative thinking: car wash-
es, barbecues," explained Mr. Lopez.
They will also be raffling off a Blu-ray
player to raise as much as possible before
the Oct. 3 deadline.

"All of our commercial businesses have
pitched in," said Mr. Lopez.
Even the mayor, city manager and chief
of police have pitched in.
"Everyone in Clewiston has been very
generous," he said, before playfully adding


The race between both men is still close.
Mr. Lopez has raised $1,668, to Mr. An-
derson's $1,321.
So who's the favorite to win?
"I can tell you who's gonnawin," said Mr.
Lopez. "It's me. I'm not wearing a dress."

Clewiston Middle School joins the AVID Team


CMS is proud to announce the inception
of our AVID program. AVID stands for Ad-
vancement Via Individual Determination.
AVID just celebrated its 30th anniversary, it
is now in 4,000 schools, in 45 states, and
has a success rate of more than 90%. The
program targets students in the academic
middle that have demonstrated the potential
to excel academically. The goal of the pro
gram is to increase the number of college
bound students. The students selected for
the program are placed in more rigorous
classes and given the support they need to
attain success with the help of tutors and an
AVID elective teacher.
For the first year, the CMS AVID pro-
gram has started with eighth graders. Mrs.
Kathleen Irey is the AVID elective teacher
that the students will see daily to learn and
practice the AVID curriculum which ranges
from learning and practicing Cornell note-

Florida has seen over 600 hospitalizations can
and over 75 deaths. hln

Where's the Beef?
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
First airing in 1984, a Wendy's com-
mercial portrayed three elderly ladies who
were served an enormous hamburger bun
topped with a minuscule hamburger patty.
In comes 81 year old Clara Peller, who
searches in vain for customer assistance
while making the outraged demand:
"Where's the Beef?"
"Where's the beef" became an instant
catch phrase across the United States.
In today's world, many people are still
asking "Where's the beef?"
The difference is that they aren't ask-
ing about a burger, they're referring to the
church.
If God is real and Christ is who He
claimed to be, then why is there not much
difference between those who go to church
and those who don't?
Evangelist Ron Hutchcraft once com-
pared the church life of many people in
our churches today to that of a wedding
rehearsal.
They have learned to say the right things
and sing and act and dress the part, but at
the end of the day it's only been a rehearsal
without a commitment.
They talk the talk and go through the mo-
tions, but their life has not been changed by
Jesus.
In talking with other ministers, I have
come to believe that every church has
some people in it who match this descrip-
tion people who honestly believe they are
going to heaven, not based on what Jesus
did for them, but based on how good a per-
son they can be.
While many of these are genuinely good
people, the Gospel has been around them
but never in them.
The answer to this need is to keep the
Gospel coming. We need to keep the Gos-
pel in front of others as well as ourselves.
This is the meat we need to eat. This is
where the beef is.
The Gospel is the power of God to
change a life.
The challenge we face is to serve this
Gospel meat in a way people can better
chew on it.
Often, without realizing it, we as Chris-
tians tend to get in a rut when it comes to
the way we present the Gospel message.
We tend to use words like lost, sin, saved,
and repent as if our people know what we
are talking about.
Here's the alarming truth: Lost people
don't understand what they mean and
church people have become immune to
them because we've overused them.
The message of the Gospel is not the is-
sue. It's how we present it that might be im
proved on. There are numerous ways we
can wet people's appetites and interests to
sample it anew.
And if we serve the Gospel every day,
using everyday language that anyone can
easily understand and digest, there will be
no question where the beef is.


The importance of
community; In biblical times
and today too
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Sometimes there are unexpected out-
comes from progress, or changes.
When I ministered in the north among
Cree Indians, I heard the elders complain-
ing about the breakdown of their society.
They are a communal people and al
ways ready for a gathering and excuse
to get together. One of the greatest times
for a community feast was after the hunt;
when everyone would gather and share the
spoils, eating and celebrating.
But no more! Why? People began to buy
freezers! The meat that would go bad can
now be stored and there is no need to eat it
before it spoils; and hence no need to share
it as well.
I entered one home in an Indian village
and the basement door was open. I no-
ticed four freezers; no doubt full of moose
meat, caribou, goose, ptarmigan, and other
things now to be shared only among the
immediate family. We have great com-
munications these days; although I've run
into great ways of avoiding communicating
with people.
How many times have I wanted to call
someone, dialed the number and then the
search began with the words "Press one
for...."? Automated systems of "FAQ's"
never seem to address the question that I
want to ask.
Unfortunately, they rarely say "And now,
if you want to speak to a real, live per-
son...." It seems fewer places or persons
are interested in people unless they are re-
warded for their time spent in some way. In
spite of all of the communications capabili
ties, loneliness continues and the unspoken
cry is "don't get involved!"
Judas has been portrayed as history's
worst bad guy for what he did; the one
who betrayed the Lord. We don't often
look at the necessity of his role; the Lord
telling him "What you are about to do, do
quickly (John 13:27)" and being aware but
not preventing him from doing what was
to come.
When his betrayal is apparent, Judas
was "seized with remorse" (Matthew 27:3)
and wanted to undo as best he could, going
to return the thirty pieces of silver received
for his betrayal.
He goes to those who were the chief
priests and elders the ones who are sup-
posed to listen, supposed to care, supposed
to help people -and wants to explain that
he has betrayed innocent blood. Their an-
swer?
"What's that to us" they replied "That's
your responsibility!(v.4)" Nobody really
listens, nobody shares, nobody will try to
understand, community is lost, loneliness
reaches its peak and Judas can no longer
face himself or others. Life comes to a trag-
ic end (v.5). Was he beyond redemption or
outside of God's potential to love? There


is nothing to say so. We may not have as
many tragic examples today; but the break-
ing down of societies still takes its toll.
The failure to be understood or heard,
still brings suffering. Someone remarked
that God gave us two ears and one tongue.
We're made to listen, to hear, to be a soci-
ety. He knew what He was doing!

The American Family of the
past
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
In the America of yesterday you paid
your debts as quickly as possible, and went
without things to do so. You disciplined
your children but disciplined yourself
first. You spent less than you earned, and
demanded your government maintain the
same standard. You went to church, and
took your children to Sunday School; you
held daily prayers and no court would
have dared to interpose any law into your
private religion. You would have been hor-
rified at (and quick to change) men in high
places who made "deals".
You expected to prosper only by doing a
better and better job. You not only obeyed
the law but took an active part in govern-
ment to see the laws were just. You "walked
softly but carried a big stick." And that was
the character which brought this great
country victory in three wars, built it back
from a shattering depression, and fed and
saved the civilized world (materially). The
big question is: "Are there enough of those
righteous standards left to do it again?"
A little boy couldn't see into the pan,
which sat perched on the edge of the stove.
He hoped it might be icing, or pudding, or
maybe mashed potatoes. His mother had
said to stay away from it; that it was a no,
no. Still there might be something good in
it. He moved closer, ever so slowly.
As he got to the base of the stove, he be
gan to reach up toward the pan of boiling
water. Just as his little fingers began to grab,
his mother swept him up from behind, and
gave him a firm spanking. Hopefully, the
next time she said no, he would remember,
that she meant it. She hated to spank him,
but the pain and shock he received from
that act was small sacrifice in the face of
the pain and shock he would have received
from the scalding water.
Punishment is rarely offered out of cru
elty or meanness. It is give out of love, to
dissuade us from actions which might hurt
us worse. God punishes sinners to show
them that there is a better way. He imposes
rules on us, not to make our lives less than
they can be, but to make them the very best
that they can be. His rod is stern, but it is
applied only in love, so that we might have
life and have it more abundantly. God deals
with all his children with love and grace. If
we will know that, then we will grow in the
ways of God, and be happy.
We can hope that the many problems
our nation is having at the present will turn
us back to the America of yesteryear. If we
do not change our ways it will lead to our
nation's destruction.

New programs geared to help jobless in Hendry County


By Patty Brant
INI Florida
It's not just the funding, it's how you use
it.
That's the philosophy behind a set of
new programs from Hendry County Social
Services. The county has received $124,000
for this year in federal stimulus money. The
first step in the program was to make some
tough decisions on how the money should
be used. After all, it's not a lot of money and
it cannot be used to duplicate services cur-
rently available.
So Director of Social Services Jim Cod-
dington and Case Manager Anna Ripperdan
took a good hard look at what's available
locally, what clients' most immediate needs
are and the most frequent obstacles people
face in supporting themselves and their fam-
ilies.
The Florida unemployment rate is at 10.6
percent. As usual, Hendry's tops that with
13.9 at this time. The problem is huge, and
the funding is small, but leveraged well, it
can help a number of people get through
their toughest times and move on toward
success.
This Community Services Block Grant


American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
funding is being earmarked to supply peo-
ple with the resources they need to gain and
retain employment in surrounding areas.
It's a two-year contract; the first ends
Sept. 30, 2010; the other runs from Oct. 2010
to Sept. 30, 2011.
The funding has also allowed the county
to hire two part time persons, 25 hours a
week, to help coordinate this funding.
The programs target five areas:
1. Family self sufficiency.
The goal here is to keep people off more
expensive benefits by using local resources
for the benefit of the family or individual.
With limited jobs and a workforce in need
of job skills, Hendry staff decided to focus
on job training that can be achieved quickly
and still provide the training to start people
on their way to self sufficiency. They tar-
geted jobs that are most often in demand
locally: certified nursing assistant, phleboto-
mist, medical assistant, welding, corrections
officer, water treatment licensing, security
guard and some limited commercial driver
licensing. These are all basic skills that can
lead to good employment in just three or
four months.
To qualify, you must be able to sustain


yourself and family during the training pe-
riod. This funding may be minimal, but it
could be just enough to get people onto the
path to success. At least 130 clients could be
helped with this money.
The county is coordinating with the Edu-
cation Center of Southwest Florida, Inc.,
Palm Beach Community College, I-tech in
Immokalee, Lee County Hi-Tech, Edison
State College and the Holiness Prayer and
Worship Education Center to provide the
short term classes that will fit into this pro-
gram.
The One Stop Centers in LaBelle and
Clewiston will help with teaching resume
assistance, application skills and interview
ing skills.
Clients may use donated computers lo
cated at both the LaBelle and Clewiston
offices to apply for benefits and to look for
jobs.
2. Vehicle repairs up to $600. Again, no
major repairs could be done, and the re-
pairs may only be done to provide people
transportation to work. Hopefully, some 36
clients will benefit from this portion.
3. Limited money for gas for transporta-
tion to find a job. You must have proof you
applied for employment and verify contact


with prospective employers. Social Services
expects to be able to provide $25 gas cards
to qualified job seekers until they receive
their first paycheck. They hope to assist 78
clients in this way. Again, oversight of the cli-
ent will be tight with this funding to ensure it
is being used properly.
4. This program will help provide Angel
Food boxes for clients newly eligible for food
stamps or those in a break from food stamps
service. It will be an incentive to encourage
people to apply for food stamps. The pro-
gram will also help clients stretch their food
budgets by instructing them on how to plant
vegetable gardens.
5. Mortgage assistance if you have lost
your job and are not in foreclosure. Some
30 clients could be helped. Although the De
apartment of Children & Families Emergency
Financial Assistance Housing Program also
does this, it runs out of money every five or
six months.
You may apply for any of these programs
by appointment only. Call Anna Ripperdan
at 675-5356 in LaBelle, in the Courthouse
Complex next to the Save A Lot Plaza or
in Clewiston call Carmen Hernandez, 983-
1469, 100 E. El Paso (the old health depart-
ment).


This column lists arrests, not con-
victions, unless otherwise stated. Any-
one who is listed here and who is later
found not guilty, or has the charges
against them dropped, is welcome to
inform the newspaper. We will confirm
the information and print it.

According to his account of the fire last
Tuesday, Sept. 8, deputies were the first to
respond, ushering the two from the fire and
out of harm's way. The deputies secured the
area while bangs and flashes and noise filled
the early morning darkness.
To his surprise, the entire crew of the
Clewiston Volunteer Fire Department
showed up almost as quickly.
He recognized one of his friends, Rob,
and warned the fire fighter that there were
countless bullets, and shells and guns in the
home. An avid gun collector, Mr. Davis said
there was a gun within reach in almost every
section of the home.
With the deputies and Mr. Davis still
searching for cover, the fire fighters, one by
one, entered the home. Perhaps in an effort
to ensure no one else was inside, the crew
broke through the fire and fought the blaze
from inside.
All the while, the bullets and the shells
continued going off.
