BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston News“As a dog owner, a bite is a bite,” warned Commissioner Kristine Petersen at the Aug. 18 commission meeting, when commissioners oversaw an informal hearing between two Clewiston pet owners. Labeled an “unprovoked attack by dogs upon domestic cats” in the commission agenda, commissioners listened to both sides of the gruesome assault that took place on Aug. 3. On one side, the owners of four cats that were brutally killed on their screenedin porch by two dogs; and on the other, the owner of the two dogs who said the attack was a “total accident.” “This was a dog and a cat. It was an accident,” pleaded Milton Cecil Harris Jr. before the commissioners, who acted as judges before deciding whether or not to add additional nes to the one already imposed by Clewiston Animal Control. “I don’t train these dogs to do anything. The lab is the sweetest dog in the world. They’re not trained to do this. It’s just instinct.” Harris contested that his dogs stay boarded up in secure pens when he isn’t watching them, but that day he reportedly let them out in the backyard before going back inside to BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsCommissioners made key decisions at their last regular meeting on Aug. 18, voting to push back the February 2016 deadline for driveway aprons, adding additional sprays to the almost-dried-up mosquito control contract, repairing the John Boy Auditorium air conditioning unit and renovating the splash pad to address the amount of water it uses each month.Deadline to Pave Driveway ApronsCommissioners voted 5-0 to approve changes to a city ordinance that requires residence to pay the costs of constructing driveway aprons under certain circumstances. As the ordinance now reads, residents must pay the cost of a new driveway apron whenever the city repaves the road adjacent to the driveway apron, when a resident completes a repair or improvement on their home that totals more than $2,500, or by Feb. 1, 2016.

BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston News“Approved by” messages are on repeat at local radio stations and yards around the county are boasting “vote for” signs endorsing home owners’ favorite candidates. It’s of cially election season, and the primaries are fast approaching. Residents have been taking advantage of the early voting process, which opened on Aug. 11 and continues until Aug. 23, allowing residents to bypass the long lines on election day. With less than one week until the primary election on Tuesday, Aug. 26, candidates are revving up their campaigns before voters decide who makes it through to the general election in November. Residents will be voting for several different of ces on Tuesday, both local, state and federal, including two seats on the Hendry County School Board, district court of appeals and U.S. House of Representatives. Three seats on the Clewiston City Commission are also up for grabs this election season, but will not be decided until the November election. With only two candidates running for the District 5 Seat on the Hendry County School Board -Dr. Patrick Lucey and Jon Basquin -that seat will be decided at the primaries. Depending how the percentage of votes fall for the other District 4 Seat, a candidate could be chosen at the primaries if he or she receives a majority vote (over 50 percent). Otherwise, two candidates will move on to the November election. Here’s who you’ll see on the ballot this coming Tuesday: Hendry County School Board District 5  Jon Basquin  Dr. Patrick Lucey Hendry County School Board District 4  Stephanie Schneider Busin  John Perry  Judy Cross-McClure District Court of Appeals  Chris Altenbernd  Morris Silberman  Daniel Sleet U.S. House of Representatives  Jean Enright (D)  Alcee Hastings (D)  Jameel McCline (D)  Jay Bonner (R), running unopposed BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsTwo commercial shing boats caught re on the rim canal just north of the boat basin in Clewiston on the evening of Aug. 12, reported the Clewiston Fire Department. The incident occurred at around 9:20 p.m., when the Clewiston Police Department received a call about a re on a boat. The owner of the boat, Melvin Rosen, was already at the scene when of cers and re ghters arrived. According to Clewiston Fire Marshal Travis Reese, Rosen used a small boat to reach the two commercial shing boats anchored on the opposite shore of the rim canal. Tying a rope to the burning vessels, Rosen maneuvered the boats within reach of re ghters’ hoses and the ames were extinguished. Had Rosen not been able to move the boats within range, Reese admitted the situation may have been even worse. “It was very dangerous and it was against our recommendation to do that,” said Reese, “but the boats would have burned in place and endangered other vessels nearby if the owner did not bring them close to the other side of the canal.” The Clewiston Fire Department does not have the necessary equipment to ght res on the water, explained Fire Chief Rob Hunton, but once the boats were moved within range of the hoses, the ames were extinguished within about six minutes. It was “quite a while” before the boats were moved into place by the owner, however, Chief Hunton said. Reese said the estimated losses from the re were approximately $70,000. The owner removed one of the boats the night of the re, and the other was left in the water until the next day. The re appeared to have started on the boat located to the east, said Reese, and the radiant heat from the rst vessel apparently started the re on the second vessel. The re was reportedly ruled accidental by Reese, but it is undetermined what may have caused the re. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, who was called to assist Tuesday night, are also investigating the incident.

FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION COMMISSIONThree Lakeland men and an Okeechobee freshwater turtle farmer were caught illegally harvesting, selling and buying wild-caught freshwater turtles as a result of a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) investigation. "Turtles are a popular, commercially available food item throughout much of the world and, as a result, overharvest has occurred in many countries," said the FWC's Lt. George Wilson, who led the effort. "To prevent overharvest here, the FWC proactively banned commercial harvest of all native wild turtles in 2009," Wilson said. Wilson and other FWC investigators throughout Polk and Seminole counties developed the case over a three-and-a-half-month period after the March 21 arrest of My Van Vo (DOB 04/19/83) of 6935 Raymond Ave., Lakeland. Van Vo was caught by FWC of cers on Lake Apopka in possession of 87 live softshell turtles weighing in excess of 500 pounds. Subsequently, FWC investigators learned two other Lakeland men were poaching freshwater turtles on Lake Marion, Lake Haines, Crooked Lake and Lake Walk-In-Water as well as from the St. Johns River. The two men were transporting and selling their illegal catch to Harden and Son's Turtle Farm in Okeechobee. The three men were known to be involved in the illegal capture and exchange of a total of 2,100 pounds of live turtles. "We hope our efforts to protect wild turtle populations help ensure everyone has the opportunity to see freshwater turtles in the wild and harvest them recreationally," Wilson said. The FWC worked with the State Attorney's Of ce in Florida's 19th Judicial Circuit to charge Canh Van Nguyen (DOB 03/15/66) of 1226 Fairlee St., Lakeland, and Lieng Su Pham, (DOB 02/04/45) of 312 Lanceolate Dr., Winter Haven, with two felonies and four misdemeanors. The owner of the turtle farm, Franklin Gene Harden (DOB 11/28/58) of 3403 SW 26 Ave., Okeechobee, was charged with three felonies and four misdemeanors.

Obituaries Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 21, 2014 6 BY PAT DOBBINS Florida Department Of HealthMillions of lightning ashes happen each year and lightning can claim one or two victims at a time. Lightning strikes usually do not cause mass destruction of property, so it may not be considered a “high-risk” to some people. However, lightning has killed approximately 100 people in the last few years. According to the National Weather Service Storm Data, over the last 30 years (1981 to 2010) the U.S. has averaged 53 reported lightning fatalities per year. Only about 10 percent of people who are struck by lightning are killed, leaving 90 percent with various degrees of disability. Lightning can strike as far as 10 miles from the area where it’s raining. That’s about the same distance that you can hear thunder. So if you can hear the thunder, that means you are within striking distance. Most lightning deaths or injuries happen in the summer, so take the time to educate your family on lightning safety: “when lightning roars – go indoors!” There are some indoor dangers to remember, as well. Stay off of corded phones and computers during lightning. If a person is struck by lightning, call 911 and get medical care immediately. Heart irregularities, cardiac arrest, nerve damage and burns are common when someone gets struck by lightning. However, with proper treatment, including CPR if necessary, most victims survive a lightning strike. You are in no danger helping a lightning victim. The charge will not affect you. Lightning is primarily an injury to the nervous system, often with brain injury and nerve injury. Serious burns seldom occur. People who do not suffer cardiac arrest at the time of the incident may experience lesser symptoms, which often clear over a few days, such as muscle soreness, headache, nausea, stomach upset and other post-concussion types of symptoms, mild confusion, memory slowness or mental clouding, dizziness, and balance problems. Please stay safe this summer and remember: “When Lightning Roars, Go Indoors!” Lightning Safety POLITICS IS THE ABILITY TO FORETELL WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TOMORROW, NEXT WEEK, NEXT MONTH AND NEXT YEAR AND TO HAVE THE ABILITY AFTER-WARDS TO EXPLAIN WHY IT DIDN’T HAPPEN.

The "Big Catch" program is Florida's family friendly, freshwater angler-recognition program, with 33 different freshwater sh to target. Simply catch a sh that exceeds the qualifying length or weight, take a photo and submit it to BigCatchFlorida.com. Special youth sizes encourage their participation, and quali ers earn a customized color-certi cate, decal and discount for a photo mount. Big Catch's origins go back to 1953, but the concept was revamped in 1996 with creation of categories for Specialists ( ve qualifying sh of the same species), Masters ( ve qualifying sh of different species) and Elite anglers (10 qualifying sh of different species), as well as a youth category representing a size roughly 25-percent smaller than the adult quali cation size. Rules were relaxed to allow either a length or weight measurement to qualify. Ivan Salis of Callahan was an early participant following the program's rebirth and quickly quali ed as a Channel Cat sh Specialist, which remains his passion. Salis came from Ohio after a stint in the Merchant Marine. Now he is sharing his love of shing with the next generation. About 10 months ago, Salis met Ishmael Lacoste, a 12-year-old whose mother knew Lacoste's wife. Lacoste saw Salis' Specialist Certi cate and became intrigued. Salis has since mentored Lacoste in his quest to become a successful angler. We are talking commitment, passion and love for shing. In 10 months, Lacoste has submitted nearly 40 qualifying Big Catches culminating in earning his Elite Angler Certi cate on June 4. His rst Big Catch was a longnose gar on Nov. 23, 2013. It was followed by bass, bluegill, brown bullhead and redear sun sh, earning him his Master Angler Certi cate in January. To attain his elite status he added spotted sun sh, Florida gar, warmouth, bow n and yellow bullhead. Along the way, he has been recognized as a specialist for six different species and documented a Bream Slam (catching four different pan sh species on the same day). "I'd like to make shing a career someday," said Lacoste, who is home-schooled. He is very appreciative of Salis' mentoring him and being so inspirational. Together they have persevered through wind, rain and yellow ies in their ongoing quest. Salis says he has enjoyed watching Lacoste learn and take on new challenges. Another thing that makes their productivity so impressive is that all of their catches have been from shore or shing piers. Thanks to the FWC's Fish Management Area (FMA) lakes in Duval County, they have had plenty of quality opportunities, including at Oceanway and Bethesda. FWC sheries technician Willie Prevatt has spent over 20 years ensuring anglers have great shing opportunities at those and other regional FMAs and helping teach youth and adults to sh. Prevatt is a favorite resource for Salis and Lacoste. "I was very happy Ishmael made Elite Angler, not because he caught most of his sh in the FMAs I work in, but simply because he is a really good person and student," Prevatt said. "I think I am most proud of Ishmael and Mr. Salis because they proved by example that you can compete with anglers shing big lakes in expensive bass boats and with fancy equipment, in a small FMA on the shore or dock, even in an urban area." Fishing is fun, challenging and a great way to spend quality time with family and friends, but there is more to it. A "Special Report on Fishing and Boating 2013," makes the case succinctly: "Fishing on lakes, streams, rivers and seas is one of the most popular outdoor activities. As a gateway activity,' it not only connects Americans with the outdoors and a healthy lifestyle, but also introduces them to other outdoor activities. As active outdoor participants, Americans learn the value of environmental stewardship and a healthy connection to nature, while also supporting public lands and community programs nationwide through license fees and federal aid." The FWC is creating the next generation that cares by reaching out to all youth via a variety of outreach programs, including the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network (www.FYCCN. org). Through an effective statewide network of diverse partners, youngsters are provided education and guidance to safely engage in traditional outdoor activities and to accept stewardship of our precious outdoor heritage. In addition to Big Catch, which inspired Salis and Lacoste to get outdoors and go shing, the FWC has a TrophyCatch citizen-science program that rewards anglers for catching, documenting and releasing bass heavier than eight pounds (TrophyCatchFlorida.com). You can register for TrophyCatch and Big Catch at the same time, which makes you eligible for a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat, powered by Mercury Marine and equipped with a Power-Pole. Inspiring Young Anglers“I WAS VERY HAPPY ISHMAEL MADE ELITE ANGLER, NOT BECAUSE HE CAUGHT MOST OF HIS FISH IN THE FMAS I WORK IN, BUT SIMPLY BECAUSE HE IS A REALLY GOOD PERSON AND STUDENT,”WILLIE PREVATT FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION COMMISSIONAfter a black bear attack on April 12 in a Lake Mary neighborhood, the FWC was noti ed about alleged feeding of wildlife. FWC staff investigated and determined that one subject in the neighborhood and two others in a nearby town were intentionally feeding bears and other animals. Investigators worked with the State Attorney's Of ce of Florida's 18th Judicial Circuit to charge Eugene D. Cifers (DOB 10/25/50) of Lake Mary and Corey D. Zeak (DOB 02/11/86) and Lori E. Clem (DOB 12/10/84), both of Longwood, for violating Florida Administrative Code 68A-4.001 and Florida Statute 379.401(2)(a)4,(2)(b)1. These are second-degree misdemeanors. Today Cifers pleaded not guilty; his case will be revisited in July. Clem and Zeak pleaded no contest, and each was sentenced to the following: 6 months probation, with the condition that they may not feed wildlife; a $200 payment to the FWC's Wildlife Alert program; 25 hours of community service. After the mid-April attack, the FWC had to put down several bears in the Lake Mary area due to public safety risks because these bears demonstrated they were overly habituated to people and human-provided food. DNA samples taken from one of these bears matched samples collected from the clothing of the woman who had been attacked in this area. There are several ways to reduce the chances of human-bear con icts. People should secure garbage until the morning of pickup and not allow pet food, bird seed or other food items to be left out overnight. Most importantly, residents should never intentionally feed bears. "People who feed bears don't realize the serious results of their actions," said FWC Bear Management Program Coordinator Dave Telesco. "Feeding bears may reduce their natural fear of people, which can lead to someone getting seriously injured and bears being killed." People with any information regarding the intentional feeding of bears should contact the FWC's Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922). Those who supply relevant information may be eligible for a reward, and they can remain anonymous.

That’s where cat owners William and Cynthia P um enter the story. The dogs reportedly traveled nearly a quarter of a mile from their home on Avenida del Rio to where the four cats lay on their front porch on N. Berner Road. According to statements from Police Chief Don Gutshall and animal control of cer KC Grif n, the two dogs jumped the fence into the P ums’ backyard, jumped through their screened-in porch and at least one of the dogs killed three cats laying on the porch. Another cat was also seriously injured in the attack, and reportedly lay on the porch crying until it expired from its injuries hours later. Mr. and Mrs. P um were out of town at the time of the incident, and it was their neighbors who heard the attack and saw the aftermath of the “massacre.” “It was a brutal, vicious attack. The cats couldn’t get out,” began neighbor Steve Daniels, who lives next door to the P ums. “If you’re’ going to have dogs that are capable of doing that, you have to keep them up. Next time, it might be a kid.” The idea of a “next time” weighed heavily on commissioners, as they pondered the fate of Harris and his two dogs -a two-year-old pit bull mix and her female puppy. “It’s hard on both sides. As dog owners we would like to say that it’s only one time and it will never happen again. It’s up to you to be vigilant. It will happen again and you’ll nd yourself in the spot where you’ll have to put them down,” said Commissioner Petersen. “This is a terrible situation to be in,” said Mayor Phillip Roland. “It’s pitting neighbors against neighbors and animals against animals. This is my worst nightmare to have to ne an animal owner and to say that if you’re not careful it will happen again. But that’s just the way it is.” Harris called the situation an “eye opener,” but would still face repercussions for the attack. Harris’ dogs were both deemed dangerous by Clewiston Animal Control, which means they must be on a leash and wear a muzzle at all times that they are not locked up in a pen. Commissioners also suggested that Harris get both dogs spayed and consider putting in a taller, more secure fence around his house, though state statute does not specify height requirements of fences. Chief Gutshall recommended that commissioners add an additional $500 penalty on top of the nes Harris has already incurred from animal control, which include a $100 running at large ne for both dogs, as well as room and board since the dogs were taken in on Aug. 3. Chief Gutshall said that because only the mother had scratch marks on her face, he believed the puppy merely watched the attack take place and did not take part. For that reason, he suggested the commissioners add only one $500 ne, instead of $500 for each dog. Commissioners voted 5-0 to add an additional $500 ne, bringing Harris’ total nes to $700, plus the cost of room and board, which totaled $140 at the time of the meeting. Mayor Roland concluded the hearing by telling Harris not to let something like this happen again. “Cecil, don’t let that happen. Let’s just not end up here again,” said Mayor Roland. Mr. and Mrs. P um, however, said they were not happy with the outcome after all was said and done. Speaking to Mr. P um on the phone the next day, he said Harris did not end up with anything that really hurt him, but he and his wife have to live with the death of their four cats. “The city of Clewiston got their fees and he [Harris] got his dogs back, but we’re left with nothing,” said Mr. P um. “It’s not the animal’s fault it’s the owners. The city can’t restrict anyone from owning pets, but I feel an irresponsible pet owner should not be able to.” Mr. P um thought Harris’ dogs should be taken from him and given to a relative outside of the city limits, saying he does not feel comfortable with them in his neighborhood. “I don’t even feel safe now leaving my cats in my fenced-in backyard,” said Mr. Plum, who houses several other cats in enclosures in his yard. If any good should come out of the incident, it should serve as a lesson to all pet owners and remind them that animals are animals and can revert back to instincts at any given moment. PETSContinued From Page 1 “THIS IS A TERRIBLE SITUATION TO BE IN. IT’S PIT-TING NIEGHBORS AGAINST NEIGHBORS...”MAYOR ROLAND word repair from the repair and improvements requirement and removing the requirement that homeowners must pave the apron concurrently with a city’s paving project if the apron is adjacent to the street being paved. Commissioner Mali Gardner voted against her own motion, because she thought the pushback date should be Feb. 1, 2017 instead of 2018, citing the fact that the longer the city holds off on driveway aprons, the worse its roads get. Commissioners have discussed paving all driveway aprons in one single project at past commission meetings, but no decision has been made on such a project. Despite the vote, the changes in the ordinance have not yet taken effect. A public hearing is scheduled for Sept. 15 so residence can weigh in on the issue.Mosquito ControlPublic Works Director Sean Schef er asked commissioners to add an additional 20 ground sprays to the mosquito control contract, which only contains ve more aerial sprays before the city has used up all allotted control methods. Due to the mild, wet winter last year, public works began spraying and trapping mosquitoes three months earlier than normal. Thus, the number of sprays and trappings were used up before mosquito season ran out. Schef er was concerned about not being able to adequately control mosquitoes before upcoming holidays, including Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, and asked that commissioners consider adding an additional 20 ground sprays to the contract, totaling about $32,000. Schef er added that the Public Works Department has about $52,000 still budgeted for mosquito control. Commissioners voted 5-0 to approve the additional sprays.Cooling Down John Boy With the air conditioning unit at the John Boy Auditorium down for several months already, commissioners are feeling the pressure to get the unit xed before several events proceed in the coming month. Elections, registrations and a wedding are just a few of the events happening inside the John Boy Auditorium this month and next, and commissioners are still unsatis ed with some of the numbers associated to repairing it. In the short term, commissioners decided to repair the unit so it would be cool enough to hold the aforementioned events inside the auditorium. However, they are not satis ed with the nearly $10,000 price tag associated with those repairs and asked directors to put out a call for more bids to get a lower price. Commissioners also voted to award the bid of replacing the unit a few months down the road to McDuf e Electric and Air Conditioning. The project will cost roughly $32,000 and will take approximately 30 days to put the unit in, plus an additional six to eight weeks before the unit is ready to be placed.Spray Park RenovationTo address the amount of water being used by the city’s spray park each month, commissioners have been looking at ways to mitigate the costs, including connecting the spray pad to the pool’s existing water lines, constructing a water recycling tank to reuse the same water, or constructing a well to use at the park. Commissioners did not like the idea of using well water, which they said would make the equipment rust much more quickly than nonwell water, and thought the idea of using the existing water lines from a pool that presents many problems on its own would be the wrong way to go, as well. Commissioners decided the recycling option would be best and voted 5-0 to approve the motion. The recycling option would include constructing a storage and treatment facility near the park to reuse water instead of using new water each time. The project is estimated to cost $14,100, with operating costs estimated to cost abouto $9,000 per year. Recycling water is estimated to save the city $40,000 a year.Other Agenda ItemsCommissioners voted down a motion to approve a sign marketing the Clewiston Public Golf Course, to be placed on U.S. 27, due to costs. The sign was estimated to cost a total of $22,000, plus labor of city employees. Commissioners said they would have a hard time supporting a sign that came with such a high price tag and agreed to table to issue until the next meeting. Mayor Phillip Roland agreed to speak with the Golf Course Advisory Board to brainstorm other options. Commissioners continue to hear ideas about renovating the boat basin using a grant from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Committee, and City Manager Al Perry also revealed that an additional $30,000 may be granted to the city. One resident suggested planners hear input from sherman and boaters who use the area regularly before deciding to move forward with any plans, which include extending the oating dock to add more area for shing and adding a pavilion to the boat basin for shade and comfort. Commissioners warned that planners should keep in mind the future costs of keeping these facilities up as they move forward with the planning. At the end of the meeting, commissioners learned that the city has gained $1.5 million in the retirement fund since Aug. 2012, after pension provider Gloria Rosen gave a short presentation. It was welcome news as commissioners prepared for the budget workshop held after the commission meeting. MEETINGContinued From Page 1 WOMEN DON’T WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOU THINK.

15 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A ugust 21, 2014Crossword Puzzle Not in Perfection but in Having SharedBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martin’s ChurchRobin Williams was a tragic loss; perhaps more tragic because of what he offered to others. In a world full of suffering and pain, the ability to escape with a few minutes of humor becomes a prize gift. There is a certain irony that someone who could take so many outside of their day-to-day suffering and grief could not do it for themselves. Those who wanted to quote to Jesus the dictum “Physician, heal thyself (Luke 4:23)” remind us all that what people can do for others, they may not be able to do for themselves. There is something about the healer having to admit that he needs healing. One theologian (Henri J. M. Nouwen) expressed it in the title of one of his books; “The Wounded Healer.” The idea is that we can help one another not only because of our gifts of healing but because of our understanding of their pain through our own wounds from life. I had the privilege of working with a man talented in languages but who was totally blind to seeing that others had dif culties in learning them. He did not see that everyone wasn’t as talented as he was and limited in his understanding of his own gift. He drove others off by his blind spot. Part of the tragedy is not seeing the gifts that we have to give to others come by just being here. We don’t have to be perfect. All of us have some kind of gift to offer. Some of the great healing capacities of communities of faithful committed people lies not in their individual perfection, but in their capacity to share because they are among the hurting, as well. A while ago, I recalled hearing about a man who had a terminal illness and decided to spend his last days looking at comedies instead of moping and feeling sorry for himself. His illness went into remission. Whether or not it was due to his choice to be happy at the end remains an open question, but whatever the cause, his decision to not be embittered or down was heroic. Whatever kept him from living a full life would not ruin his capacity to enjoy the days he had. The Biblical account of Judas Iscariot taking his own life is about a man who cannot shake off the guilt from his act of betrayal (Matthew 27:3ff) and the refusal of others to help him atone for what he had done. The message of the incarnation is, “I have been there, I know of your suffering and pain, I have lived with you and can understand, share it.” The message of the importance of forgiveness is likewise highlighted in Judas’ attempt to come to terms with what he had done; perhaps our acts of forgiveness will one day literally save a life! We can understand why someone can feel he no longer can cope with life; we can also understand the tragic loss. Perhaps we cannot change the circumstances that drive people to do desperate things; but we can provide the comfort, the understanding, the sharing that comes with realizing we’ve all had our own bad moments, too. This quality makes forgiveness all the much easier; who can really cast the rst stone or deny that they’ve had their own minutes of hurting? One of my clergy acquaintances told of the person who stayed away from Church, telling him, “The Church is full of hypocrites!” and therefore he was not going to have any part of it. The response from the clergyman was, “That’s all right, there is always room for one more!” The community of the faithful is where we can step outside of ourselves for a short while; to be strengthened and then returned to the world outside. The strength comes from the sharing, not perfection. It is in our drawing to the one who has overcome the world and sharing with Him. Then we can go out and heal and be healed too. That changes the world, others, ourselves. If you would like to contact Rev. Thomas about this column or have an idea for one, please send an email to fatherthomas@saintmartins-clewiston.org.Gospel ConcertCLEWISTON — Community Christian Church invites the community to attend a gospel concert extravaganza!

RELIGION NEWS AND INFORMATION Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 1 cent per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.34/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has increased 2.3 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.49/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 14.9 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 16.3 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 8.9 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 4.2 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “The national average has now dropped to its lowest level since February, and with the end of the summer driving season nearing, we’ll likely see gas prices continuing the downward trend,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Oil prices last week dropped to $95/bbl brie y before rising the next day back to $97/bbl, but the important factor is that prices remain under triple digits. For motorists, we’re nearing the point that gasoline demand dropsafter Labor Dayand also the upcoming switch back to cheaper winter gasoline will also put downward pressure on prices in mid-September. While a short term increase in gasoline prices is never out of the question, as we grow nearer to September, the likelihood of a spike decreases. It won’t be long before we’ll start to see a few cities seeing averages under $3/ gal: areas of Tennessee and South Carolina are already getting close,” DeHaan said. GAS PRICE UPDATE
