arrests
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
While on his routine patrol,
Deputy Nicholas Reed with the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
spotted a car that ran past the in-
tersection of C.R. 835 and David-
son Road.
It was not the last intersection
the car would run through with-
out regard for safety.
The simple infraction set off
a series of what officers would
argue were stupid moves on the
part of the driver, who seemed
not to be in complete control of
the 1997 Mercury four-door he
drove.
The car's tires spun out and
the car drove erratically as it trav-
eled north on C.R. 835, approach-


men o c a eUeve e a
possible DUI on his hands, so he
followed.
Even as the deputy activated
his emergency lights to stop the
vehicle, the car veered recklessly
in and out of the lane. The car
pulled over to the side of the road
for five seconds before the driver
hit the gas and sped off.
The deputy called for back
up while the two vehicles raced
north on the road, and then
turned left on U.S. 27, heading
into Clewiston. At that point, dep-
uties believe the car was traveling
approximately 90 miles-an-hour.
The car zipped by the intersec-
tion of U.S. 27 and Francisco Ave.,
disregarding the red light. It was
when the car attempted to south
bound turn near San Pedro that it
struck two signal poles.
Deputies and officers with


Officials believe driver may
have been 19-year-old Haslett
Ayala. Ayala faces charges of
resisting an officer by fleeing or
eluding, and additional charges
for attempting to resist an officer.
Other potential passengers appre
ended include Bria Bredwood,
19, Javier Johnson, 22.
The group was transported
to Hendry Regional Hospital for
treatment of any injuries before
being taken to the Hendry County
Jail in LaBelle.
Later that morning, a juvenile
was approached by the Clewis-
ton Police Department. The 15-
year old said she was also a pas
singer in the vehicle. After the car
stopped, she fled from the scene
and hid under the front porch of a
nearby residence until the depu-

Man faces

15 counts:

possession

of obscene


material
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
A Clewiston man is charged
with possessing a number of im-
ages and videos which seem to
depict underage children engaging
in sexual acts. He was arrested on
Saturday, after the multi-jurisdic-
tional South Florida Internet Crimes
Against Children Task Force, along
with the Clewiston Police Depart-
ment, tracked the files back to his
computer's IP address.
Steven J. Walker, 23, a manager
at the local Save A Lot, faces 15
counts of possession of obscene
material charges. Officers may add
on more charges once a thorough
review of the man's laptop is com-
pleted.
The case was handled by the lo-
cal police department, which has
had success in previous years tar-
geting and arresting individuals in
connection with illegal online ac-
tivity -- specifically, the enticement
of juveniles for sex.
This case is different in that
the individual in question is not
charged with making contact with
a child who is under age, or in pro-
ducing any of the material he is
said to have been in possession of,
but the details of the report, if true,

and quickly held the Griffins after a short
drive.
Taking the punt at their 25, Gateway
Charter quickly got a taste of what was in
store for the evening.
Senior tailback Chris Herring ran off tack-
le for gains of 14, 15, 16 and 18 yards, with
an Andres Rios pass to wideout TeAngelo
Ulett for 9 yards sandwiched in the midst.
Then, Herring swept for another 15 yards
and the score. Kicker Grant Polhill nailed the

point after, the first of his perfect 7 for 7 night

The Griffins didn't fare as well on their
next possession when defensive corner Da
mion Smith picked off his first of two inter-
ceptions on the night, giving the Tigers the
ball at their 30.

Herring continued pounding the line for
large gains and then Clewiston slipped in

Herring got the final 9 yards to score.

Tigers
Continued From Page 2
Clewiston then picked up two points
when Griffins' quarterback Justin Veras
dropped the ball in the end zone and let a
knee touch the ground as he tried to scoop
it up.
After the free kick by Gateway Charter,
the Tigers just roared down the field again.
With good field position at their 47, Her-
ring reeled off a 14 yard pickup, Rios hooked
up with Shomori Butler for a short 4 yard
completion, and then Herring was off to the
races on a 34 yard scoring jaunt.
Clewiston closed out the first half scoring
with Washington and reserve tailback Albert
, ,. i;..,, ..n,H i. h,.. i ,i
i,,, ..Y -- 11, I _yardsand
the Tigers went to intermission sporting a
37-0 lead.
Griffins coach Joe Swain elected to use
the running clock option for the second half
due to his squad's deficit of more than 35
points.
Tiger coach Joe Roth freely substituted in


the second half and allowed the entire roster
to gain some valuable game experience.
The Tigers final score from scrimmage
came late in the third period when tailback
Chauncey Thicklin punched it in on an 8
yard run.
The Griffins finally scored midway
through the final stanza after a 9 play, 57-
yard drive against the Tiger substitutes.
On the following kickoff, Shomori Butler
pulled the ball in at the 15 and raced un-
touched for an 85 yard touchdown.
Chris Herring led the offense with 3
touchdowns and 298 yards rushing on 14
carries.
Fred Washington added 89 yards on 6
tries. The Tigers rolled up a massive 380
yards rushing on 32 snaps. Quarterback An-
dres Rios was a perfect 5 for 5 throwing
Defensively, the starting unit held the Grif
fins to a negative 14 yards rushing and 47
passing in the first half.
In addition to Smith's two interceptions,
linebacker J.T. Hill also picked off a pass and
returned it 12 yards to the Griffins' 8 yard line
to set up the touchdown run by Thicklin.
The win improved the Tigers to a 2-4 re-
cord but both wins have come in important


district contests.
After a week off to get healthier, the Ti-
gers will travel the two following weeks to
Lake Placid and LaBelle, respectively, for
more district games.
They close out district play the follow-
ing week with Homecoming at Cane Field
against a tough Dunbar squad.

dents to avoid contact with wild and stray
animals to protect themselves from the risk
of rabies exposure.
In Florida, raccoons, bats, and foxes are
the animals most frequently diagnosed with
rabies.
Other animals that are at high risk for
rabies include skunks, otters, coyotes, bob-
cats, and stray or unvaccinated cats, dogs,
and ferrets.
Each year Hendry County receives re-
ports of rabid animals. In 2009, there have
already been two rabid foxes reported in
Hendry County.
In both of these cases, the foxes were ex-
posed to people. One was on July 29, 2009
and the most recent was on September 24,
2009.
"Rabies is a potentially fatal disease. It
is important not to handle wild animals, be
aware of unusual acting animals, and keep
pets vaccinated against rabies," said Brian
Prowant, Environmental Health Director
Hendry County Health Department.
Rabies is transmitted through exposure
to the saliva and nervous tissue from a rabid
animal through a bite, scratch, or contact
with mucous membranes such as the eyes,
nose, or mouth.
Hendry County Health Departmentworks
with City of LaBelle Animal Control and City
of Clewiston Animal Control in responding
to incidents of animal bites.

Local Red Cross responds to


seven fires in first week of


Fire Prevention Month


Now is the time for local residents to take
immediate action in preventing home fires.
Already this week, the Greater Palm Beach
Area Chapter of the American Red Cross has
responded to six major home fires within its
service area. The organization has provided
each of the 22 adults and children affected
by these fires with immediate emergency
assistance including shelter, food, clothing,
smoke soap and comfort kits; all at no cost
to the victims.
The following is a list of fires that Red
Cross has responded to in the first week of
Fire Prevention Month. They are listed as
Incident, Date, Location, Number of Adults,
Number of Children and Severity:
House Fire, Oct. 1, 1211 5th Street,
Palmdale, 1, 0, Major.

October is fire prevention month. Dur-
ing the month of October, the Red Cross
will spread the message that all individuals
should practice fire safety to avoid home
fires. A home fire can be destructive, costly,
devastating and even deadly; and often oc-
curs without warning. Home fires present
the biggest disaster threat to families across
our nation. Locally, dedicated volunteer
members of the Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter respond to house fires once every
30 hours, on average.


This month, individuals who serve on
the organization's volunteer Speakers Bu-
reau will increase community appearances,
spreading life-saving fire safety information.
Youth volunteers at the Red Cross will go
door-to-door in a West Palm Beach neigh-
borhood on October 16th, distributing
English and Spanish Fire Safety Tips. Mark
Goggin, Red Cross Manager of Disaster Pre-
paredness and Response emphasizes, "Un-
like other disasters, most home fires can be
prevented." The Red Cross is committed to
giving people the information they need to
reduce their risk of home fires, and to help-
ing people recover after a fire happens.
The Red Cross encourages people to re-
member two key fire safety steps to protect
their home and loved ones from fires: Get a
smoke alarm, and have a fire escape plan.
Some alarms save lives. Sixty-five per-
cent of home fire deaths happen in homes
with no smoke alarms or with smoke
alarms that don't work. Make sure you have
a smoke alarm on every level of your home,
inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.
Test your smoke alarm once a month by
pushing the test button, and replace the bat-
teries at least once a year.
Fires can spread throughout your
home in minutes, so when every second
counts, having a plan can help you escape.
Home fire escape plans should include at
least two ways to escape from every room
of your home. Also, select a meeting spot
at a safe distance from your home where
family members can go after escaping. Af
ter discussing your plan with all members
of your household, you should practice the
plan twice a year.
Remember, home fires happen more
often than hurricanes, floods or tornadoes.
Take your family's life into your hands by
practicing fire safety.

Moore Haven's late comeback attempt falls short

In Moore Haven's 23-20 loss to St. Stephens Episcopal, the lone highlight for
quarterback Keonte White was a 65-yard touchdown pass to Terry Hallback in
the third quarter.

Moore Haven's Fred Hall, a midseason Hot 25 Super Seniors pick, has scored
15 touchdowns, including two against St. Stephens Episcopal last week.

IN[ Florida
MOORE HAVEN Time is of essence.
The Moore Haven Terriers know that
concept, as a late comeback attempt fell
short in its 23-20 home loss to St. Stephens
Episcopal.
Down by three with 31.5 seconds left
in the game, Moore Haven needed to drive
down the field 90 yards to secure its fourth
win of the season.
But a series of pass incompletions
doomed the Terriers, as the St. Stephens
defense kept Fred Hall and Keonte White at
bay for the ensuing possession.
On the final play (perf ,i il
defining moment for both t. ' h i
rolled to the right from Moore Haven's 22
yard line, he lobbed a pass to Hall, which
seemed like a catch.
Unfortunately for Hall, the pass was bro-
ken up, sealing the win for the Falcons.
"We had to stop Keonte and Fred," said
Stan Brown, the Falcons head coach.
"I hated scouting against Fred. He's got
heart, he runs the ball hard every time. Ke-
onte is a jitterbug type runner. He has the
moves to make guys miss and the speed to


run past everyone."
St. Stephens, who displayed an eight-
man defensive front for much of the game,
gave White many fits, especially late in the
fourth quarter.
White (2-for-12 passing, 69 yards, 1 TD, 1

to Terry Hallback in the third quarter.
The long score put Moore Haven back in
the game after being down 23-6 at halftime.
Hall (18 carries, 203 yards, 2 TD) brought
the Terriers crowd to its feet later in the sec-
ond half as Moore Haven was able to cut St.
Stephens lead to 23-20.
But even as Moore Haven's defense set-
tled down late in the game, the damage was
already done.
Moore Haven (1-2 in District 6-1B play;
3-3 overall) looked overmatched in the first
half, allowing St. Stephens running back
Cameron Allen (24 carries, 141 yards, 2 TD)
most of his yardage and both his scores to
give the Falcons that big lead.
St. Stephens threw only six passes in the
game, but that was Brown's plan anyway -
to simply 'run the ball down Moore Haven's
throats.'
"Our linemen have been riding Cam in
the first half," Brown said of the Falcons
game plan.
"We were just executing on the offensive

line, that's all there is to it."
Jason Bond, Moore Haven's head coach,
admitted the first half deficit was 'just too
deep to dig out of.'
"We played a terrible first half," Bond
said. "We didn't block or tackle well. We
can't spot a good team that many points (23)
and expect to come back. But I'm proud of
our kids because they came out and played
hard in the second half."
Believe it or not, Moore Haven is still in
Class IB playoff contention, especially af-
ter Evangelical Christian (last week's No. 2
team in Class IB) was upset byOut-of Door
Academy.
With two losses, Moore Haven will need
some outside help to reach the playoffs.
Out-of-Door Academy and Bradenton
Christian, both 2-0 in District 6-1B play, are
the two leaders as of now.
Those programs are Moore Haven's final
two opponents this season.

Standout performers

SOUTH LAKE REGION We are now at
the midpoint of the 2009 football season,
with several weeks left to go.
With that being said, many of our area's
high school seniors have performed excep-

six weeks.
Last month, this publication revealed
the Hot 25 Super Seniors list, with all of the

Religious columns


You might be a pastor if...
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I've been told, "I wouldn't have your job
for all the money in the world!"
Others wished they only worked one day
a week for a weeks pay! The Scriptures tell
us: "There's a time to weep and a time to
Ih- and "A cheerful heart is good medi-

Every assignment has its challenges, but
it does us good sometimes to look at our
challenges in a humorous light.
In all that's happening, this Pastor Ap-
preciation Month might be a good time to
laugh and embrace a cheerful heart with
some holy humor!
I am sure you've heard "You might be a
pastor if..." jokes. Here are some of my fa-
vorites:
You might be a pastor if you've ever
dreamed you were preaching only to awak-
en and discover that you were.
You'd rather negotiate with terrorists than
the women's group.
You've ever wanted to lay hands on some-
one, and you feel guilty that you weren't
thinking of praying for him.
You' ii.... 1 ..,... .,, .- i Ti .
W ord" ,. I ... .. I i .. ..
You jiggle all the commode handles at
the church before you leave.
You can sing along with the congregation
while thinking about the notes of your ser-
mon.
And finally, you might be a pastor if you're
leading the church into the 21st century, but
you don't know what you're preaching on
Sunday.
A cheerful heart is good medicine. Here
are some things you can do to give your pas
tor a cheerful heart: If you nod your head
during the sermon, do so because you are in
agreement, not falling asleep.
Take notes during your pastor's preach-
ing, hopefully of the sermon.
Say "amen" when the pastor proclaims
Biblical truth, because "amen" means "so
be it!" and "right on!"
Say "amen" real loud but be careful be-
cause it will shock the pastor and some will
think a revival is beginning.
If you hear someone say "praise the
Lord," stand up and actually do so! People
will be convinced the aforementioned re-
vival really is taking place.
Show up at church workdays so that


there will at least 2 people present, the pas-
tor and you.
Discover your Spiritual Gifts, and actually
DO something with them in your church.
Give a good report about your pastor,
bragging about your pastor in such a way
that your relatives and friends just might
want to attend church just to meet such a
wonderful person.
Honor the one who provides pastoral
leadership to you and your family.
Pastor appreciation is a mark of a healthy
church, a living illustration of God's grace,
love, mercy and forgiveness.

To start lots of things or do a
few things well: The Biblical
Model
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Once when I was teaching Religious His-
tory at a Church School, the students would
ask me about test answers.
I gave an essay question one day and a
fill, .1 I,.,1 brought me his answer.
S,, enough?" he asked. "I don't
know" I answered, "Did you answer the
question?"
He went back and wrote some more,
then came back with the question once
more.
I gave him the same answer. He wrote
some more but didn't ask again.
I reflected that each time he came, he
returned to write some more; apparently
he knew more but just didn't want to put it
down on paper.
It also occurred to me that he was think-
ing about the length of the answer rather
than whether or not it was complete.
I thought about people and their express
sions of faith. We're used to thinking in
quantity; do we do enough to please God?
One clergyman told me about playing
the games on his laptop at the airports while
waiting between flights; and adding, "I guess
I could be writing something or answering
the mail or doing something constructive."
I didn't think of his moment of diversion
as doing anything wrong.
Maybe he was recuperating after a hectic
day and lots of travel, with more travel to be
faced before finally getting home.
He was thinking about the quantity of
work; perhaps he could do a little more.


Yes, we all could do a little more, but we
don't always do all that we can.
Even God Himself took a day off and rest-
ed from all his work (Genesis 2:2). It wasn't
that there was nothing else for Him to do;
it was that His work was complete for that
segment of things.
Before starting anew, He took time out
to recuperate and then..." And God blessed
the seventh day and made it holy because
on it He rested from all the work of creation
He had done (v.3)."
The way God went about things was to
do a job until it was finished, rest, and then
start on something new.
It wasn't a matter solely of quantity, but
of completeness. My fifth-grader needed to
shift from quantity ("Is that ..- 1 to
thinking about completeness i', I .. an-
swer the question?").
I have found people that feel, and with
some justification, that they always could
have done something more.
Of course!
But it seems we do better when we un
dertake something we can manage, see
them to completion, and then rest a bit be-
fore starting something new.
My home has many projects that I could
undertake.
If I started them all, there would be rooms
full of disassembled or half-finished things
sitting around and maybe they'd never get
done.
I'd probably accomplish less, than by do
ing one thing at a time and finishing it be-
fore going on to something else. I think I'm
in good company.
The Master Builder finished His work be-
fore He moved on.
I can learn from Him.

We have no creed? Can it be
so?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
The man on the floor of Madison Square
Garden seem to be paying little attention to
the speaker and may not have heard.
I have no way of knowing how many
watching TV noticed the statement made
by the speaker at the Democratic National
Convention; I for one sat bolt ui, ,_i, ,' i..-
statement. "We have no color, -- I
We have no creed?
Now, I want to think I know what the
man intended to say but even at that I re-


marked that the speaker should re-think the
meaning of the word "creed."
Did the man intend to say, We have not
creed, we have no beliefs, we don't believe
anything?
I don't think so, after all, I've been taught
the word "creed" has come to us from the
latin word "credo" meaning what is be
lived!
I'm sure the speaker did not intend to
convey the idea that he did not believe any-
thing.
Yet for a lot of people, politicians included,
the statement would be an accurate one.
Leaving the political arena, let's see the
same expression as applied to the church.
Could the church truthfully say, "We have
no creed."
I fear many in our day could say just that,
"We don't believe in anything."
When a body of people that for genera-
tions held firmly to the Bible as the inspired
word of God; treated it and it's teachings as
the only guide to follow, can compromise
and unite with others which are known for
their denial of basic Bible truths -- when
that happens one is caused to question their
creed -if they have one.
A slogan which came from the heart of
restorationism was "No creed but Christ,
no book but the Bible, no name but the di-
vine."
No creed but Christ is that still enough?
Apparently some don't think so, or maybe
they think that is too much.
What is our creed about the Lord's Table?
What do we believe about it? Jesus said,
"This do in remembrance of me."
Some don't place enough importance
upon it to do it at all! What's you creed about
evangelism, world evangelism?
Jesus said, "Go into all the world and
make disciples of all nations." What is your
creed on the subject, or do you have one?
Jesus said, "He that believeth and is bap
tized shall be saved." What is your creed
about faith, repentance, confession and
baptism? What is your creed on these mat-
ters, or do you have one?
Have we no creed?
Yea, a thousand times, Yea!
We do have certain beliefs on these and
other things, because Jesus gave them to
us.
What is your creed?
What do you believe? Put some thought
and study into it. You do have a creed!

are disturbing nonetheless.
According to the arrest report, the sus-
pect utilized the popular peer-to-peer soft-
ware program Limewire to obtain the im
ages and then made it so that others could
obtain them from him.
Officers used a shared law enforcement
database to track the man's IP address. The
system notified officers that certain files con-
taiing illegal pornographic images were
available at the specific IP address.
The report lists descriptions of the images
and videos contained in the files -- too graph-
ic to be repeated in detail, which contained
references to rape, incest and sexual activity
with children believed to be as young as six
years of age.
The origin of many of these files is so am-
biguously observed that one of the few iden-
tifiers officers have to go on to obtain the age
of the victims is the physical development of
the children.
Nearly six pages of the report are dedi-
cated to cataloguing the images.
Comcast, a local internet service provid-
er, worked with law enforcement officials
to identify the IP address, and returned the
name of Mr. Walker, of West Alverdez St.
With a search warrant in hand, officers
arrived at the home of the suspect on Oct.
6. According to the report, the suspect was


cooperative and told officers that he had
utilized the software program to download
what "he believes may be child pornogra-
phy." He said he had about 15 such files in
his music folder.
He reportedly had been downloading the
child pornography over the past year, but
said it had been several months since he last
did so.
Walker was transported to police depart-
ment on the charges of possession of child
pornography. He spoke to officers, without
a lawyer present.
Among the statements officers gleaned
from the interview, as stated in the report,
are:
He states that over a year ago he ini
tially discovered child pornography through
Limewire and it sparked his interest.
He states that his interest in possessing
and viewing child pornography comes and
fades depending on his mood.
-- He states that based on the title and
persons in the video "looks like a child" he
knows that he is in possession of child por
nography.
-- He states that he has in his possession,
within his "My Music" folder "a little bit of
everything" when it comes to child pornog-
raphy, such as young girls and young boys.
During the interview, the man said he
discovered child pornography after he ran a
search for a song by the group, "The Bare
Naked Ladies."
