The pros and cons of standardized school wear W S PP .V. N C GP W S P P V N G P T, J On every parents’ mind as school prepares to start is, “What will my child be wearing to school?” It’s an issue that Luan Walker, mother of a recent graduate and another daughter who is beginning high school this fall, has thought about. Luan said she endured four years of dress code violations with her older daughter and won’t be enduring another four. She is spearheading a proposal to have the schools in the area, especially Clewiston High School, adopt a school uniform policy. Though too late for this year, she is planning to build up support for the 2012 2013 school year. She makes her case. “There are no negatives to this plan,” she said. “School uniforms save parents money, kids don’t have to take so long getting dressed in the morning and they perform better in school.” Citing her online research, she claims that several studies have shown that school uniforms are bene cial to a student’s academic performance. Essentially, she continued, a uniform policy will help train young adults when they enter the work force. “Many jobs do have a dress code policy in force,” she said. “We need to help our kids get used to the idea that they need to dress better.” She continued on to say that having a uniform policy would save the high school administration a lot of time and effort in having to report dress code violations. Asked to consider that dress is a form of self-expression for some students, Walker responded, “Self-expression is important and there are few there at the high school who know how to do it well and maturely,” she said. “But, the majority have proven that they cannot make good decisions when Attempted to hide the gun under the front seatBY JUAN LOPEZ jlopez@newszap.comA late-night traf c stop for suspicious activity led to a weapon discharging. It happened around midnight on July 16. That’s when Sgt. Spence of the Clewiston Police Department noticed a black pickup truck driving around a residential area in the south side of Clewiston with no apparent destination. Spence observed the truck enough to make a traf c stop. As he made the stop, his spot light was shining on the cab and the of cer saw the driver and a passenger leaning over to the oorboard. As he approached the truck, a gunshot rang out from inside the truck. Spence called for back up and Ofc. Thomas responded. Three occupants were inside the truck; Kenneth Murray, 26; Natassja Williams, 21; Kenneth Bowles, 31. All three passengers were searched for weapons and did not have any. When the truck cab was searched, two semiautomatic handguns were found under the front passenger seat as was a small bullet hole.

But they still have the right,” said Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden in response to a question regarding why it takes so long for Hendry criminal cases to move through the system. With the dismissal of the Harlem murder case and with several murder cases that have been on the dockets for years, many are left wondering: why do cases take so long to go to trial? For his part, the sheriff still sticks by his opinion that a certain level of apprehension comes into play and the State Attorney’s Of ce sometimes decides not to move forward with cases. “I do understand that there are cases that are un-winnable, whether due to lack of evidence or no evidence at all,” Whidden said. “But, what is a problem is that the State The Slow March of Hendry CasesSEE GUN  9 SEE UNIFORMS  12 SEE CASES  9 PHOTO / JOSE ZARAGOZAFor their part, Maxis Screen Printing and Embroidery says it does not support the idea of school uniforms.

COMMUNITY NEWS AND INFORMATION ........................................................ ........................................................ ........................................................ ........................................................ BY STATEPOINTAs the new school year gears up and to-do lists get longer, make sure to put your child’s health on the list. Updating vaccinations, scheduling annual physicals and alerting your child’s school about allergies and illnesses are crucial steps to ensure their academic success, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). “Children need to feel their best in order to learn, and schools need to be able to provide for students’ daily health issues as well as special needs, accidents and emergencies,” says O. Marion Burton, MD, of the AAP. You can ensure a safe and happy year for both parent and child with a little planning. Vaccinations Thanks to immunizations, most children in the United States today lead much healthier lives than generations past. And while vaccines have reduced many infectious diseases to low levels in the United States, vacationers can bring old and new diseases back into the country. Measles, for example, is still prevalent in other parts of the world and has been linked to recent outbreaks in the U.S. Unvaccinated children are at risk. That’s why routine, up-to-date vaccinations are as important today as they have ever been. There may be tears, but the pain associated with most immunizations is minor. Consult your pediatrician about keeping your child’s vaccination schedule up to date. Food Allergies and Illnesses If your child suffers from food allergies or other health issues that require management during the school day, be sure to contact the school nurse and update your child’s health plan at school. This will ensure that proper steps are taken if the child develops symptoms while at school, and that his or her activities are not restricted unnecessarily. A child’s health can change from year to year or even month to month, so make sure the school is well aware of how to handle new conditions or restrictions. Parents should also check that you have provided the school with any special medications your child needs. Annual Physicals Along with your child’s regular annual physical, aspiring athletes should get a sports physical before the start of the season. Children’s bodies are vulnerable to injury, and as youngsters move through middle childhood -becoming bigger, stronger, faster, and more aggressive -the incidence of injuries rises. Make sure your athlete wears a welltted helmet, mouthpiece, face guard, padding, eye gear, protective cup, or other equipment appropriate for the sport. Of course, regardless of whether your child is on a competitive team or not, parents should promote physical activity for all kids.

Discussing health issues with your pediatrician before the start of the year helps children, parents and school staff ensure students’ health and safety all year long. Tips For Packing Healthful School LunchesThe rush of getting the kids out the door in the morning can make packing a healthful lunch seem like an impossible burden. The typical parent will pack around 200 school lunches yearly, and planning them all requires some serious nutritional skills. Not only do parents need to know how to choose healthful fare, but they need to know how to pick foods their kids will actually eat. “When you plan your child’s lunches, be sure to choose items that are both healthful and fun,” says Edmond Sanctis, co-founder of Sahale Snacks, a producer of all-natural nuts and nut blends. “You want to select foods that are colorful and appealing and that provide energy and nutrients to get them through the day.” Get creative with protein. Nuts and beans provide more ber and less saturated fat than traditional proteins, like meat, cheese, and eggs. Try making a bean dip from chickpeas or pinto beans and pairing it with crunchy vegetables, like carrots, celery, bell peppers, or whole-wheat pita triangles. Or add texture and sweetness to lowfat yogurt with a handful of nuts or granola. Pack edible ABCs. Fresh fruits and nuts are a fun way for kids to get much-needed vitamins, from A to zinc. For example, oranges pack a wallop of vitamin C, blueberries are full of antioxidants, and almonds are rich in vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and iron. Portion control matters. Little bellies require smaller portions. While kids love opening crinkly bags of chips, the serving size may be too large and unhealthful. Instead, look for small portion packs, like .75-ounce bags of healthful nut blends, such as cashews with pomegranate or almonds with cranberries. Choose packaged foods made with natural sweeteners and avors, like vanilla, honey and sea salt, instead of arti cial avors or high fructose corn syrup. Drinks are as important as foods. Once you’ve gone to all that trouble to choose nutritious foods, don’t ruin your efforts by tossing soda into your child’s lunch box. Opt for un avored lowfat milk, water or 100 percent fruit juice. Many juice products only have small amounts of real fruit juice, so read labels carefully.  Make veggies special. Add extra avor and crunch to salads with apple slices, nuts and dried cranberries. Or mix in pre-packaged nut blends or seasoned nuts. For young children, consider blends combining tree nuts with dried fruit, like pomegranate. Older kids might like salads topped with more avorful choices, such as Sahale Snacks Barbecued Almonds with Mild Chipotle and Ranch. For more healthful, kid-friendly food ideas, visit www.sahalesnacks.com. “While you needn’t be a seasoned chef to pack great school lunches, it helps to know a few tricks of the lunch box trade to get your kids eating more healthfully,” says Sanctis.

BY PAT DOBBINS Hendry/Glades Health DepartmentsNow that the rains have nally arrived, it's time to start thinking about mosquitoes. It's so important for you to protect yourself and your family from mosquito-borne diseases. Mosquitoes can carry West Nile virus infection, St. Louis Encephalitis, and Eastern Equine Encephalitis. Once a person is infected, they may have mild symptoms which include headache, fev er, dizziness, and fatigue, but other severe symptoms are also possible. Mosquito-borne diseases can cause serious illnesses and sometimes death in people of any age, but children and those over 50 are at greatest risk for severe reactions and disease. Avoiding mosquito bites is the best way to prevent disease. Please remember the ve D's: Dusk and Dawn Avoid being outdoors w hen mosquitoes are seeking blood. Dress Wear clothing that covers most of y our skin. DEET When the potential exists for exposure to mosquitoes, repellents containing up to 30 percent DEET are recommended. Oil of lemon eucalyptus can also be effective. Drainage Check around your home to rid the area of standing water, where mosquitoes lay eggs. Tips on Repellent Use Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before applying a repellent. In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the repellent is appropriate. DEET is not recommended on children younger than two months old. Oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children less than three years old. Infants should be kept indoors or mosquito netting should be used over carriers and strollers when outside. Never apply repellents to a child's hands. Adults should apply repellent rst to their own hands and then transfer it to the child's skin and clothing. Apply insect repellent to exposed skin or onto clothing, but not under clothing. Do not apply repellent near the eyes or mouth, cuts, wounds, or irritated skin. Tips on Eliminating Mosquito Breeding Sites Clean out eaves, troughs and gutters. Remove old tires or drill holes in those used in playgrounds to drain. Turn over or remove any empty containers (cups, pots, buckets, etc.). Check tarps on boats or other equipment that may collect water. Store boats upside down or with a cover Replace water in birdbaths and pet or other animal feeding dishes at least once a week. Change water in plant trays, including hanging plants, at least once a week. Remove vegetation or obstructions in drainage ditches that prevent the ow of water.

UF develops method to do so BY ROBERT WELLS Univ. of FloridaPlastic may compete with paper in the grocery line, but it doesn’t have to compete with the w orld’s food supply, according to University of Florida researchers. They’ve developed a way to produce plastic that doesn’t use valuable natural resources, such as food or fuel, for raw materials. The new method uses a strain of bacteria to create bioplastic from discarded plant material, such as yard waste. Bioplastic, or plastic from renewable resources, is produced when an organism such as a bacterium creates lactic acid while fermenting carbohydrates. The lactic acid can then be converted into long chains of molecules to form plastic. Current bioplastic production uses food carbohydrates, such as cane sugar or corn starch, as raw materials. Traditional plastic production requires petroleum. Keelnatham Shanmugam, a UF microbiology and cell science professor, Lonnie Ingram, a distinguished professor in microbiology and cell science, and their co-workers made the development. Their research is published in the May issue of the Journal of Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology. “As we start using more and more bioplastics, w e are infringing upon the use of food material,” said Shanmugam. “We’d like to switch away from food-based carbohydrates to non-food-based carbohydrates for producing plastics.” Using discarded plant material to produce plastic helps keep commodity prices down. The plastic produced from the process is both biodegradable and recyclable, Shanmugam said. In the study, the researchers tested the bacterium — Bacillus coagulans strain 36D1 — for its ability to produce lactic acid in a variety of conditions typical of bioplastic production. The bacterium was collected from a geyser in Calistoga, Calif., which was one of the many places the researchers sampled for bacteria. Previous attempts to produce lactic acid from discarded plant materials using microorganisms have not yielded enough lactic acid and weren’t cost effective. However, Shanmugam and Ingram found that by adding calcium carbonate to the process, they achieved lactic acid yields as high as those achieved by organisms that fermented food carbohydrates. Additionally, the heat-tolerant bacterial strain also cut production costs signi cantly by allowing the process to run at a higher temperature, which reduced the amount of expensive, plant-digesting enzymes required by up to four times. Cost savings are also achieved by eliminating the need for food carbohydrates as raw materials since discarded plant waste is less expensive. For example, using straw as a raw material is 13 times less expensive than sugar and ve times less expensive than corn or wheat. Mark Ou, a UF biological scientist and the study’s lead author, said increases in oil prices over the last several years have led to more interest in petroleum alternatives for plastic production. “If we can save some of our oil and turn our plants into our plastic cups and packaging, then we can increase our national security by reducing our dependence on foreign oil,” Ou said. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

Food, water, shelter, habitat, and safety are important considerations when attracting wildlife. Excellent resources to learn about “Landscaping for Wildlife” can be found on the University of Florida’s IFAS Living Green website: http://livinggreen.ifas.ufl. edu/ or at your local IFAS Extension Of ce. One interesting bird built for marsh life is the Tricolored Heron. The Tricolored Heron is fairly common, but with decreasing numbers they are designated a Species of Special Concern in Florida. This slim, medium sized heron was formerly known as the Louisiana Heron. Adults have a dark slate-blue head and upper body with a purplish chest and white belly. During breeding season, the Tricolored Heron sports a short white head plume, a buffy throat and fore-neck, a blue face and a blue bill, tipped w ith black. Non breeding adults have a yellow face, bill and legs; the throat and fore-neck are white. On juvenile Tricolored Herons, rusty red adorns the head, neck, upper back, and front parts of the wing. Long legs enable them to wade and see down through water while using long toes to churn up food and distribute its weight over soft mud. Foraging behavior is very active and it often runs after sh. A long neck and bill help this elegant bird reach prey which consists of sh, crustaceans, reptiles and insects. Its vocalization is a soft nasal moaning or croaking similar to other herons or egrets. Tricolored Herons usually nest in colonies with other heron and ibis species. A clutch may contain 3-4 blue-green eggs which hatch in about 22 days. Both parents feed the young. The young can swim well for short distances at 14 days of age and edge at about 16-21 days of age. You are invited to join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers on the Aug. 20 birdwatching trip to STA5. Reservations are required.

BY PAT DOBBINS Hendry/Glades Health DepartmentsWith only a few weeks left of summer break, parents are probably thinking about getting their child ready to go back to school. Along with school clothes and school supplies, parents should make sure preventative health measures are included on their child’s back-to-school checklist. Success in school starts with keeping students healthy and safe. Parents should take their children to a healthcare provider for an annual “wellchild” check-up and to make sure all vaccinations and medical records are in order. Healthy eating, adequate physical activity and good sleep patterns are also instrumental to success in school. Parents should talk with their children about traveling safely to and from school. This includes planning safe routes for walking or riding a bike, reminding them to stay on the sidewalk, crossing the street only at designated crosswalks, and showing them how to properly wear a bicycle helmet if they are riding a bike to school. If your child is old enough to start driving a car to school, please remind them of some of the basic rules of the road. Don’t be afraid to talk to y our teen about safe driving. Allow them to take Driver’s Education if it’s offered at their high school. Ask your vehicle insurance company about programs available to teach teens about safe driving tips. Children in Florida should never have to be w ithout health care. Insurance can improve a child’s access to medications and treatment they may need to control childhood illnesses and decrease absences from school. The state of Florida offers KidCare, a health insurance program for children from birth through age 18. Children can be eligible even if one or both parents are working. Children covered by Florida KidCare are eligible for comprehensive health care, including sports physicals, doctor visits, check-ups, immunizations, surgery, prescriptions, vision and hearing screenings, mental health care, dental checkups and hospital stays.

Ihad seen ads for Appearance Implants and sought out Dr. Harrouff. When I walked into the lobby of the office the first thing I saw was a photo of the late Republican strategist Lee Atwater, who I later learned was a childhood friend of Dr. Harrouff. As a South Carolina Democrat I didnt have a lot of love for Lee, he had gotten the best of me in my first campaign, I sure as hell wasnt too keen on letting any buddy of Lee work on me. After that first encounter, I felt very confortable with Dr. Harrouff. The entire experience was purely first rate. From the people who greeted me in the lobby and to the dental staff, the Appearance Implant & Laser Dentistry team makes you feel right at home. When Dr. Harrouff got down to performing the procedure it was fast, relatively painless and the result was just perfect. The finished implant works better than Id expected. He provided me with the most affordable treatment and I have been more than impressed and satisfied by the results. I have recommended Dr. Harrouff and his professional and friendly staff to many of my friends.

Recovering from a near-record breaking dry season and a damaging drought, the amount of rainfall that is needed is lacking. It nally looks as if the wet season is nally here in South Florida. For the Hendry County area, the average rainfall total so far is 4.65 in. What has helped had been the extreme downpours that have been occurring lately. The beginning of July did not post impressive rainfall totals. Around July 7, totals began to rise as storms were more frequent. If rainfall continues in the same pattern for the rest of the month, Hendry could have a monthly total of 6 8 inches. An interesting fact shown in the reports is that 4 in. of the rainfall total occurred during one storm period. For the Glades County area, the rainfall is very similar to what has been reported in Hendry County. Rainfall did increase in the past two weeks raise the current total to 4.66 in. Reports are also predicting that 6 8 inches will be the total for the Glades County are by the end of the month. The largest amount of rain that was dumped by a single storm period was 1.31 in. For Palm Beach County, they have reported the largest amount of rainfall of the tri-county area with a current total of 5.73 in. As with Hendry and Glades, the same spike in rainfall can be seen as beginning two weeks ago. The largest amount of rain that was reported from a storm period was 2.17 in. The forecasted amount of total rainfall for the month is expected to be from 7 9 inches of rain. July Sees Increase In Rainfall

The other handgun was a Tariq model Iraq 9mm with 8 rounds in the magazine. When questioned, Murray stated that he had bought the Ruger from a friend, did not have a bill of sale for the gun and was scared that he w ould get caught with an unregistered rearm. A s he was trying to hide the gun, it accidently discharged. As for the Tariq, that belonged to Murray's cousin Kenneth Bowles. Bowles initially denied owning the Tariq but admitted that he did and had bought it from a friend in Palm Beach. He was carrying it with him because he had never been to Clewiston and w anted to protect himself. An interesting fact: the Tariq Iraq model is a handgun that was issued to Iraqi military personnel, including former Republican Guard members. Bowles corroborated his cousin's story of trying to hide the handguns when the Ruger went off. He also stated that he did have a felony conviction on his record. Both Murray and Bowles were charged with felony possession of a concealed weapons. Bowles is facing additional felony charges of negligent discharge of a rearm and possession of a rearm by a convicted felon. GUNContinued  1 Attorney has a habit of no- ling all the time for cases that aren't seen as a hands-down win." He gave the Harlem murder case as an example where it may not have been a handsdown win but there was evidence to make a convincing case. Despite this, the sheriff takes responsibility for shouldering some of the blame in cases, and admits that detective work isn't always foolproof. "We (Sheriff's Of ce) have made mistakes from time to time while building a case," Whidden said. "But we have xed them and have come back with answers and better performance. Why can't the State Attorney's do that?" The process a case goes through when it is submitted to the State Attorney is simple. When a crime is committed, local police or the Sheriff's Of ce investigates and gathers as much evidence as possible. That evidence is compiled into a case and given to the State Attorney's Of ce. They, in turn, review what has been submitted and have 40 days to le a charge. Sometimes they are backed up or they forget; yet they still have the option to le after those 40 days. If the state does le charges then the case is entered into the court system via the docket and the suspect is arraigned and enters a plea. From there, the confusion begins as to how long a case should take. Every court has a score sheet that helps judges and attorneys determine the level of punishment that a crime deserves. Everything from misdemeanors to felonies is covered on this sheet. According to Matthew Cleary, of the Public Defenders Of ce, the State Attorney's Of ce in LaBelle doesn't have one. They are having to constantly refer to Lee County's score sheet to determine punishment. "LaBelle doesn't have a score sheet and it takes time to send the case le over to Lee and time to get a determination back," he said. Matthew Cleary is one of many who have been watching the back up grow over the past months. As to what is causing the back up, he gave a few possibilities. "The lack of a score sheet is one. Another is a high turnover rate with judges and state attorneys here," he said. "When one leaves, all their cases get passed around to others or dumped on the incoming attorney who has cases of his own to handle." As to there being a faster solution to wrapping up smaller cases and trials, there was an attempt by Judge Christine Greider to establish a better method for fast tracking minor cases. That attempt was called Case Management and, depending on who you talk to, that attempt was either a success or a failure. For Sheila Mann, the Court Operations Manager for LaBelle, Case Management has been effective in clearing cases from the docket. The Court Operations Manager oversees several sections, including Case Management. "When we implemented Case Management, cases were being cleared quickly," Mann said. According to the data that she shared, the number of cases their of ce is closing is over 100 percent of the new cases that are being opened monthly. There have been spikes, she explained, as the one they had a few months ago where they were ling 20 or more felonies per month. The number of employees hasn't changed at the courts but the workload has increased. She was quick to add that clearance rates were slowly rising. She explained Case Management as having two branches: pre-trial release and traditional court cases. The traditional court cases are divided down into three categories: standard, complex and expedited. This is supposed to help the courts decided which cases need more time and which can be quickly dealt with to clear the docket. "Essentially, Case Management helps judges and courts stay informed with any and all information regarding cases," she said. "It keeps track of everything, keeps the courts accountable by having them stick to a time table." She also stated that pre-trial release was also working and producing results. Are such results being seen? "Case Management is similar to docket sounding. However, it doesn't explain all those drug cases and simple felonies that take six months to resolve especially compared to Glades and Belle Glade," he said. "The pre-trial release program is not effective because the waiting period defeats the purpose. If someone has a job, family, etc they aren't going to try and save a hundred dollars by waiting in jail; they are going to be contacting a bondsman immediately." The pre-trial program's narrow scope of eligibility limits its effectiveness. It only applies to local people on misdemeanor charges and there is a waiting period before someone can get in. Word of the case clearance rates supplied by the court operations manager being so high had made its rounds around the LaBelle court house, with one lawyer remarking, "Is there a note of sarcasm and skepticism in there?"CASEContinued  1 Some con artists have reached a new disgusting low preying on grandparents. Better known as the Grandparent Scam it works like this. Typically the grandparent receives a distressed phone call from someone pretending to be his or her grandchild. There are several variations to the scam but usually the supposed grandchild explains that he or she is traveling in Canada or Mexico and is in some kind of trouble, ranging from an arrest to an auto accident. The con artist pleads with the grandparent to wire money to post bail or pay for damages, usually amounting to a few thousand dollars. As part of the scam the grandparent is asked to wire money through Western Union or MoneyGram, right away. Scammers sometimes contact people randomly. They also use marketing lists, telephone listings, and information from social networking sites, obituaries and other sources. Sometimes the scammers don't know the names of the grandchild. For instance the caller may say "Hi grandma," hoping that you actually have a grandson. If you ask, "David, is that you?" the scammer will say "Yes!", Often these crooks will call in the middle of the night and take advantage of the fact that you may not be awake enough to ask more questions and you may not want to disturb other people by calling them to con rm information. If you realize you've been scammed contact the money transfer service immediately to report the scam. If the money hasn't been picked up yet, you can retrieve it, but if it has the money is gone. If you get a call or email from someone claiming to know you and asking for help, ask some questions that would be dif cult for an imposter to answer like the name of the person's pet, or the date of their mother's birthday. Try to contact the person who they claim to be directly. If you can't reach the person; contact someone else, a friend or relative. Don't send money unless you're sure it's really the person you know.

And when they do, sometimes we’re the bug, and sometimes we’re the windshield. One night Taylor watched a huge female turtle heave herself up the beach to dig her nest and lay her eggs into the sand. The next day while trying to nd the nest, Taylor found tracks showing the female turtle had gotten confused and headed into the dunes away from the sea. Following the trail, Taylor found the turtle exhausted and all but baked. After pouring water on her, Taylor fetched a park ranger. The ranger ipped the turtle over on her back, wrapped tire chains around her front legs, and took off in his jeep, dragging the turtle over the dunes and down onto the beach. At the ocean’s edge, he unhooked her and turned her right side up again. The poor turtle lay motionless in the surf for a while. As waves broke over her, she lifted her head slightly, moving her back legs as she did, until one of the waves made her light enough to nd a foothold and push off, back into the water that w as her home. Watching her swim slowly away and remembering her nightmare ride through the dunes, Taylor noted that it’s sometimes hard to tell whether w e are being harmed or saved by the hands that turn our world upside down to help us. It reminds me of a story about a little bird w ho didn’t y south soon enough for the winter. It wound up on the ground, slowly freezing to death. When things looked really dim, a cow happened by and dropped a big warm cow pie on the little bird. The warmth of the cow pie revived the little bird, who felt so good he stuck his head out and began to sing. A fox coming by heard the singing and snatched the little bird up and swallowed him. The moral of the story is that everyone who dumps on us isn’t necessarily our enemy, and everyone who pulls us out of the manure we nd ourselves in isn’t necessarily our friend.Finding Faith in Strange Places; Like My DrivewayBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchOne lady mentioned being stuck one day on a freeway. Traf c was crawling and no headway w as being made. As she looked down, there was a blade of grass growing from between the cracks in the asphalt. She didn’t see it when traf c was moving at 60 miles per hour, but there it was! I recalled grass growing up from the cracks in my own driveway and re ected about what I was seeing too. The grass in my yard has all of the bene ts of growing; sunlight and water, soil that is nourished by the elements and opportunities to be fertilized. That grass under the driveway, though, has none of these bene ts conducive to life yet it grows anyway. That grass under my driveway has a lot of tenacity, a lot of drive, it has spirit! The will to live, even under the most dif cult conditions imaginable is a lesson that blade of grass shows me. We tear it out, spray it with chemicals but it comes back! God has implanted it with a faith to seek to move upward, to seek the light even if it is only a shadow through a crack, to be rooted even if the soil has been “treated” and is never watered, to grow under the poorest of circumstances. Eventually that grass will grow and crack the driveway even more; that’s a will power to be reckoned with! I begin to see what Jesus was saying about having faith like a mustard seed(Luke 17:6ff). If you have it, you can uproot trees or move mountains, or accomplish the impossible. When you have faith, you can do well under the most difcult of circumstances. Faith, though, is not being manipulative and saying “I believe – so let me get my way.” It has to do with the nature of who we are, whom God has made us and are intended to be. The grass is to cover the earth and in it’s own way knows of it’s reason for being created. When human beings do likewise, faith brings ful llment. We are here to help, to share, to love, to respect, to make peace, to do good when we can; and when we’re about why we’re made, faith will give us all sorts of power and abilities beyond what we imagined. Much of the created order seems to have this faith by instinct; we humans are blessed with memory, reason and skill and it seems we have more opportunities to miss the goals that fulll. The lessons to be learned from the creation around us is that faith wins when we do what we’re called to do. I’ve turned down requests for prayers over lottery tickets or performing pretend marriages! But when it comes to healing or nding ones way in life or protecting those in harm’s way; I’ll be there two hundred percent. It has to do with faith; faith works, I’ve seen it in the strangest of places. Even in my cracked driveway!A Good HomeBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian Church It may be a one-room apartment, a trailer, or a twelve-room house, but it is a good home for a child: 1. If he is loved and wanted and knows it. 2. If he as a part of the family, has fun with the family, and belongs. 3. If his early mistakes are understood as a normal part of growing up, he is corrected without being hurt or confused. 4. If his growing skills walking, talking, reading, making things are enjoyed and respected. 5. If he has freedom that ts his age and his needs and has responsibilities that t his age, abilities and freedom. 6. If he can say what he feels and talk things out without being afraid or ashamed. 7. If he can learn through mistakes as well as successes, and if his parents appreciate his successes rather than dwell on his failures. 8. If as he grows older he knows his parents are doing the best they can, and they know the same about him. 9. If the family sticks together and the members help each other. 10. If he is moderately and consistently disciplined from infancy, has limits set for his behavior, and is helped to take increasing responsibility for his own actions. 11. If he is taught to believe in truth and lives by it because his parents have lived their ideals and Christian faith. RELIGION COLUMNS

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 12 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 21, 2011 it comes to self-expression. Sadly, the majority rules.”School of cials consider the planHer proposal will not be falling on deaf ears. George Duckstein, principal of Central Elementary, is in favor of hearing out a proposal, but does not hold an opinion either way, choosing instead to allow the community to shape the type of policy that the school adopts. A few years ago, his school was one of three elementary schools that allowed their students to wear blue jeans to school, taking into account economic concerns of families in the county. The move coincided with the national economic recession, with the argument being that if parents cannot afford more, then why demand more of them? But he remains open to the possibility of a school uniform policy, or at least hearing more about a possible proposal. “I’ve been with our schools for 18 years, and I’ve never seen where kids have worn whatever they wanted to,” he said. “There’s always been a dress code.” According to him, students are monitored for proper dress, but at least in the elementary schools, there simply hasn’t been an issue with the way children dress. Perhaps it’s a more prevalent issue in high schools and not elementary schools, he wondered. “We’ve never con scated any gang paraphernalia. We’ve never seen kids hanging out in groups. It just isn’t an issue at this level,” he said. Asked if he ever wore a school uniform himself, he was quick to respond. “I went to a Catholic school, so we wore a full uniform,” he answered with a smile.An expressed oppositionOpposition to a school uniform policy is strong, especially with high school students. For one student, such a policy is seen as censoring the freedom of self-expression. Local high school student Josh Deese strongly opposes the idea of having a dress code policy. His challenge to it is based on the principle that students would view such an implementation as a form of censorship. “Students are happy with how the dress code is now. They are able to express themselves,” he said. “They would receive no bene t from such a policy.” For one, he said, the restriction of student selfexpression from who and what they want to be. Since self-expression is critical to a teenager, this could be quite detrimental to the overall development, he argues. They would also, he claims, feel isolated and “left out” from the groups of friends as well as limit their sense of diversity. “There is also the economic factor,” he said. “This could create an economic burden on students who come from low-income households.” With economic concerns on everyone’s minds. Would such a policy be nancially sound for parents, school administration and even local businesses? One of the local businesses which stands to be most affected by a new school uniform policy is Maxis Screen Printing and Embroidery. Maxis handles embroidery for local businesses, including embroidery jobs for the local high school athletic department. But would a sudden order to process hundreds of school uniforms at a time be possible at the shop? “Absolutely not,” said owner John Mack, who explained that the cost of managing and processing the orders would be a lot of work for little to no return. He wants nothing to do with them. “We tried this a couple of years ago and it was a complete op,” explained Mack. “A lot of money was lost.” According to him, the pro t margins in handling school uniform orders, let alone an abundance of them, just doesn’t make good business sense. In order to take on the job, at least one additional person would need to be hired, but with razor-thin revenues, it’s a hire that Mack simply cannot make. He chooses to focus on the embroidery aspect of his enterprise. Beyond the business proposal – he would just as soon allow an outside business to process the orders – Mr. Mack has a philosophical counterpoint to the idea of school uniforms. The former school teacher, who taught art for 22 years, has always disagreed with the notion that students could bene t in any way from altering their dress. “I don’t like it for the high school. It’s s---. The students need creative outlets,” explained Mack, adding that the way a student dresses is another form of expression for young adults. “Some teachers are bothered by clothing,” he said. He makes an argument against clothing disrupting gang activity in schools, adding that if students wear speci c colors to represent their gangs, it only makes it easier for school of cials and police to know who they are. “Don’t we have better things to worry about?” Mack said. UNIFORMSContinued  1 John Mack. George Duckstein. Results of Facebook PollReaders on the Clewiston Facebook page overwhelmingly oppose a school uniform policy. Out of 114 votes, 76 voted against any measure. A sampling of commetns: ‘There’s always going to be dress code issues, whether you have uniforms or not.’ J.M. Agee ‘No! You’d be taking away the little individuality and freedom that we have left.’ K. Grech ‘This will happen if someone can show that school uniforms raise FCAT scores. Uniforms would save time, but I doubt that time would be applied to academic work!’ D. Sankey ‘I like the uniforms. It makes them look nice and neat. I know the kids don’t like them all that much but at least everyone is usually dressed appropriately for school.’ S. Beckett ‘It should be an ‘all’ or ‘none’ thing.’ A. Shannon ‘I remember being in school and my nights were spent picking out clothes for the next day instead of doing school work. I think uniforms reduce the stress on students and open up a “new” world that doesn’t revolve around what you wear and how much money you spend on your clothes. Children are free to be themselves and not worry about the fact that they’re not wearing $80 jeans! I pray that when my kids are school age, Clewiston schools will mandate uniforms through high school.’ M. Roskom To take part in the discussion, like the Clewiston News on Facebook.

This conviction stems from the 2009 incident w here a family member of the victim walked in on Campbell as he was actively molesting the v ictim.
