Child dies from beating


Woman reportedly
hit 3-year-old, woke
up to find him dead

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY A local
woman was accused in the death
of a three-year-old boy over the
weekend. The child reportedly
died from injuries sustained, in a


beating.
Tia Danae
Roundtree, 27,

ed child abuse Tia Danae

According
to the sheriff's office, Roundtree


is the boy's father's fiancee.
Initially, the charge was aggra-
vated child abuse with a $10,000
bond set by the state attorney's
office. However, after investiga-
tors determined that the boy died
from "multiple blunt force
injuries" sustained from physical
,abuse, the homicide charge was
added, along with a $20,00.0
posted bond.

Finizio hired
minutes after
the decision

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE As a last
item of business during Monday
night's city commission meeting
in Belle Glade, commissioners
voted to terminate the employ-
ment of Cit.yManager Newall
Datighirey ~dfl "hire. former
Pahokee City Manager Vincent
Finizio.
Finizio's employment with
the City of Pahokee ended in
controversy, after comments
quoted in an article in The Siun
newspaper were viewed as
racist by some readers.


During commissioner's
comments, Vice Mayor Donald
Garrett offered a motion to fire
Mr. Daughtrey, with Commis-
sioner Shelly Miller offering her
second.
The motion was to give Mr.
Daughtrey three months sever-
ance pay.
Almost immediately after the
motion was made, Commis-
sioner Mary Kendall, who along
with CommissionerGwen Asia-
Williams did not seem to agree
with hiring Mr. Daughtrey last--" -',
year, appealed to the deciding
vole, Mayor Ray Torres Sanchez,
to carefully consider the motion.
Both Commissioners Asia-
Williams and Kendall opposed

Plan takes look



at state of city


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE As the City of
Pahokee plans to move for-
ward this year, an evaluation
and appraisal report (EAR) was
prepared by Calvin, Giordano &
Associates, Inc. to help the city
with its progress.
The plan was adopted by
the city commission on Jan. 9
during its regular meeting..
The major issues that the
report addresses included
affordable housing, infrastruc-
ture, and economic develop-
ment, to name a few.
According to the report, the
city has a limited amount of


housing that is accessible to the
workforce, seniors and under-
privileged residents, with many
of them lacking access to safe,
decent and affordable housing.
The report said that in'the
previous comprehensive
report, done in 1996, a major
goal was to implement a hous-
ing improvement program
involving a coordinated effort
of housing inspections, demoli-
tions, rehabilitation assistance
and new housing development
for the residents who have very
low to moderate incomes.
However, the report found

Courthouse project detailed


$133 million
expansion is in
the works

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Palm
Beach County has plans to
expand the Glades area court-
house system in the next few
years.
The proposed extension will
cost an estimated $133 million.
Some residents and at least one
judge question whether it will
be enough.
The expansion of the court-
house will include a new com-
munications center, a new
police substation, and expand-
ed court and jail systems.
Audrey Wolf, the director of
facilities for Palm Beach County,


said that the design of the
expansion is already under way,
with construction to begin early
next year.
The projected completion is
set for the end of 2009.
Jeannette Dexter, a longtime
resident of the Glades area, said
the facility needs at least two
more courtrooms, since most of
the trials and cases are heard in
the one existing courtroom.
Judge Nelson Bailey agreed
with the sentiment, adding that
a new state attorney's office is
also needed.
"Three courtrooms are
needed to handle the vast array
of cases we currently have on
file," said Judge Bailey.
Previously, cases weren't
being filed by some law
enforcement agencies due to a
lack of resources at the court-
house, officials said.
Now that the Palm Beach


County Sheriff's Office has
taken over all law enforcement
duties in the Glades, the cases
are getting more traction with
detectives able to call on the
resources of the sheriff's office
to handle lengthier and more
complex investigations, which
will ultimately lead to more
cases being tried in court.
Howard Coates, chairman of
the West County section of the
Palm Beach County Bar Associ-
ation, said the association
would like to see the communi-
ty be the driver for expansion of
additional facilities and more
resources for the Glades judicial
complex.
"We are trying to be the focal
point for determining the needs
of the community for judicial
reasons and to have access to
the Glades," said Mr. Coates.

Go Glades Teams!
History was made in the Glades
recently when all three of the


Glades football teams won state
championships and Clewiston
High School made it to state run-
ner-up. Glades Central is now the
District 15, 3A champions, Glades
Day School is District 6, 1A champi-
ons and Pahokee High School is
the District 7, 2B champs.
Now, the communities of Belle
Glade, Pahokee, South Bay and
Clewiston are coming together to
honor all our players who have
excelled this past season. A com-
mittee has been formed, called the
"Muck City Champions" commit-
tee, to plan a BIG celebration on
Saturday, Feb. 17. The celebration
will begin at 10 a.m. with a parade
in Belle Glade that will start at the
corner of Gator Blvd. and North
Main Street and end at the Belle
Glade Chamber of Commerce.
The festivities will then move to
the campus of Palm Beach Com-
munity College where there will
be a Glades-style barbecue and
activities until 3 p.m. Donations
for the barbecue are $5 and will
include barbecued chicken or ribs
and all the trimmings. Newly-
elected County Commissioner
Jess Santamaria is a big supporter
of this event, as well as many resi-
dents of the Glades who are
donating their time and talents to
honor our football teams.


Muck City Champions Com-
mittee Chair Michael Fliehs wel-
comes financial support from the
community to help honor our
teams. An account has been set
up at the Bank of Belle Glade to
accept donations to help put on
this historic event. All monies
raised will be used for the expens-
es of the event and funds left over
will be divided equally between
the athletic departments at Glades
Central, Glades Day and Pahokee
High for the purchase of champi-
onship rings and jackets. Just stop
by the Bank of Belle Glade and ask
about donating to the Muck City
Champions Fund.
Volunteers are needed to help
organize this event and help with
the barbecue. For more informa-
tion on how you can get involved,

Weed and Seed makes a difference in young men


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The purpose
of the Weed and Seed program is
to. weed out the negativity and
seed in possibility.
Students who are served by
the program say that the organi-
zation has, in part, made it possi-
ble for them to make a better life
for themselves.
Weed and Seed, a non-profit
organization established several
years ago in Belle Glade to com-
bat the crime activity in the city,
features a male mentoring pro-
gram. The program targets two
age groups grades First to Fifth
and grades Sixth to 12th.
Director Leondrae Camel said
a key goal is to empower the boys
to become young men of integri-
ty. He said he believes that can be
done by just being a positive influ-
ence on them.
"We want to take the initiative
to make changes in the commu-
nity. If we seed first,, then the
weeding will take place on its
own," said Mr. Camel.
Ronald Faustin, 17, a student
leader for Weed and Seed, said he
believes that many young people
are caught up in everything but
school. He is concerned about

the recent crime activity in the
area and said he does not want to
get caught up in it.
"Mr. Camel is doing whatever
he can to keep me out of trouble.
He provides us with a place to
come to every day after school,"
said Ronald.


Javian Pittman, 15, a student of
the Weed and Seed program,
believes that the experience has-
helped him to do better in school
and stay out of trouble as well.
"Mr. Camel is like a big brother
to me. He talks to me about the
importance of staying in school


and out of the streets," said
Javian.
Vincent Fortunete, 17, has
recently joined the program. He
believes that the positive influ-
ences around him will help turn
his life around from past experi-
ences with drugs and fighting.
"Being here has made me
learn some life lessons and skills,"
said Vincent. He hopes to say
goodbye to the past forever.
Mr. Camel isn't alone in reach-
ing out to Belle Glade's youth.
Wenfred Dorsey, the manager
of the Weed and Seed safe haven,
where the children go after
school, believes that mentoring
the young males will provide a
lasting effect on the children.
"We try to instill hope and
optimism in the children," said
Mr. Dorsey. "It'll take them a long
way."
Other activities that the stu-
dents in the program are involved
in include team building, conflict
resolutions, and much more.
"These children were dealt a
bad hand' said. Mr.-Dorsey. "But
with a partner playing with them,
they can win."

program, call Weed and Seed at

Pets have training time for annual Chihuahua race


BELLE GLADE Doc Savvy

Races as part of The Black Gold

Pet Corner


Question: Dear Doc Savvy,
Hello, my name is Jose and I live
in Greenacres. My female pit bull


dog went into neat tree months
ago and bred
with my male.
She has
gained some
weight, but
nothing has
happened yet.
Should we
have puppies
by now?
ndent Thanks Doc
ussion Doc. Sa"y
dends Answer:
dustry Hey Josel Well let's start with how
Mion of many weeks could she possibly
of the be pregnant??
public The average gestation or preg-


nancy time for a dog is about 65
days. If your calculations are cor-
rect and if she is indeed truly preg-
nant, then she is past due!
Jose there is a possibility that
she didn't get pregnant or she
may be having a false pregnancy.
In either case you must take her to
your veterinarian for an evalua-
tion. If she is pregnant than
maybe your calculations are off,
or there may be a problem with
her pregnancy. Which ever it may
be, do not wait any longer to find
out.
Hope it's good news!
Keep me posted, Doc Savvy
E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavy@aol.com and check
out your answers weekly in The
Pet Corner.

support of the Belle Glade com-

ularity and notoriety. All in all, it
is an opportunity for some good
old fashioned family fun, with a
hint of creativity incorporating
the bond between people and
their pets.
The Chihuahua Races are a
relay race involving many teams
of two people, a leash and a dog
under 25 lb. (any breed may
apply). The first runner holds the
leash, and runs to the second
runner holding the dog. The first
runner hooks the leash to the
dog, and the second runner runs
with the dog to the finish line.

anything on us!

SFWMD hosts Chinese delegation


WEST PALM BEACh The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) recently hosted a
delegation of Chinese water man-
agers and academics to demon-
strate the District's expertise and
industry-leading best practices in
hydrologic modeling, water supply
and environmental restoration.
Ma Zurong, director general of
the Hetao Irrigation District in China
, visited the SFWMD on December
27-28 with his U.S. host, Dr. Harris
Han of Houston, Texas. Their visit
was coordinated by Dr. Chansheng
He, professor and graduate advisor
in the Department of Geography at
Western Michigan University.
The delegation met with
SFWMD executive management,
engineering and hydrologic model-
ing personnel to achieve a better
understanding of water manage-
ment policies and programs in the
United States,
particularly as they relate to inte-
grated water resources manage-
ment, water rights, and environ-


mental assessment and protection.
They received briefings on the Cen-
tral and South
Florida Project; the SFWMD's
advanced hydrologic modeling
best practices; the District's region-
al water supply planning process-
es; and the Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Plan.
Also as part of the visit, the dele-
gation toured Stormwater Treat-
ment Area 1 in western Palm Beach
County and the SFWMD control
room, from which several water
structures are operated. Staff from
the District's Big Cypress Basin serv-
ice center provided tours of ongoing
environmental restoration work at
Lake Trafford and Corkscrew
Swamp as well as a tour of the
basin's water management system.
"The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is recognized
internationally for our pioneering
work in such areas as environmen-
tal restoration and hydrologic mod-
eling," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chairman Kevin McCarty.

"Given the remarkable ecosystem
we help protect, we are fortunate
to attract some of the
most talented scientists and
engineers in the world. Our expert-
ise is often sought by other water
managers, and we are delighted to
assist them in implementing their
projects and spreading a vision of
global environmental protection."
In addition, the visit was utilized
to showcase the District's use of
state-of-the-art supervisory control
and data acquisition (SCADA) sys-
tems in water management.
According to SFWMD Executive
Director Carol Ann Wehle, the dele-
gation was able to observe opera-
tions of these large-scale, distributed
measurement and control systems
in irrigation scheduling, lake level
simulation, and flood forecasting to
help them refine the implementa-
tion plan of similar SCADA systems
in the Hetao District.
"One of the principal objectives
of this visit was to observe actual
applications of SCADA systems in
irrigation management," added Dr.
He. "The SFWMD is one of the
most advanced water manage-
ment agencies in the nation and
one of the best equipped with
SCADA in support of hydrologic
modeling and water resources
decision making."


Located in western China, the
Hetao Irrigation District is the sec-
ond largest water management dis-
trict in China and seventh largest in
the world. It employs approxi-
mately 6,000 people.
SFWMD expertise also is sought
in the aftermath of various natural
disasters. Following Hurricane Kat-
rina, for example, two senior
SFWMD scientists were invited by
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
to serve as technical advisors on
computer modeling studies and
operations that helped assess the
causes of damage in affected areas.
Funded by a grant from the Unit-
ed States National Science Founda-
tion and the Sri Lankan National
Science Foundation, a U.S. team of
experts was assembled by the
SFWMD and the Colorado School
of Mines following the devastating
Indian tsunami to research the
short-term and long-term impacts
of'the disaster on groundwater
resources in the coastal belt; to
date, it is the only comprehensive
groundwater resources study in the
region. The SFWMD subsequently
hosted a Sri Lankan hydrogeologist
visiting the United States under a
sponsorship from Water for People
and provided training on computer
modeling and field investigations of
coastal groundwater resources.

Workforce


Alliance


celebrates
BELLE GLADE Workforce
Alliance, an organization that pro-
vides career development servic-
es for job seekers and human
resources services for businesses
throughout Palm Beach County,
recently secured tickets for Glades
area high school football champi-
ons to attend the NFL Experience
in Miami.
Steve Craig, Workforce
Alliance's Vice President of Busi-
ness and Economic Develop-
ment, met with Rodney Barreto,
chair of the host committee for
Super Bowl XLI to explore a
unique way to acknowledge the
achievements of the three Glades
area high school football teams
that won state titles the Glades
Central Raiders, Pahokee Blue
Devils and Glades Day School
Gators.
"Having Super Bowl XLI in
your backyard is always great
economically for the neighboring
counties, but getting additional
recognition for Palm Beach Coun-
ty high schools is an added wel-
come touch," said Mr. Craig.
This event, participation was
made possible due to the gen-
erosity of Mr. Barreto, who organ-
ized the field trip for all team play-
ers and coaches and provided 200
tickets for the NFL Experience,
and the efforts of the School Dis-
trict of Palm Beach County, which
arranged the transportation to the
event.

School

Happenings

KEC/Canal Point
Elementary School
Fourth Grade students wrote
to a writing prompt last week
and had their papers grade by
two graders. Each student who
scored a four (4) or better had
their names put into a drawing
for DVDs! We had many students
who had their names put into the
drawing! The winners of the
DVDs were Kennan Hamilton,
Malik Burgess, Joelisha Banfield,
Tylik Hill, Jesus Prieto, and Den-'
etrious Walker. Congratulations..
to our super fourth grade writers!
FCAT Testing for fourth
graders began this week as they
took the Writing portion of the
test. The students were confident
and excited as they prepared to
write their best!
FCAT Tip of the Week:
Encourage students to get a
good night's sleep the evening
prior to the test, and to wake up
early enough to get their brain's
active by test time. Students
could engage in a quiet activity
before bedtime to help them
relax. Reading a book would be a
great activity!
100th Day Celebration
The celebration was a great
success! We had over 100 par-
ents, students and staff! Favorite
activities included: how many
times can you jump?, The candy
guessing jar, finding the perime-
ter with cheese crackers, weight
and measurement, and candy
graphing. Many of our families
received great door prizes! Thank
you to all of our families who
came out and celebrated the
100th day of school!

Expand your cultural horizon


By Jo Coombs
LABELLE Is your cultural
aura becoming dim? Is your body
shriveling from lack of laughter
and entertainment? Why not
drive the short distance to LaBelle
and take in the theater?
In the early '90s, some folks
from LaBelle formed a theatrical
group. With the city's old empty
fire station, donations of seats,
equipment and a lot of hard
work from volunteers, the Fire-
house Cultural Center was creat-

Were you a victim of ID theft?


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Bill McCollum has
issued a consumer alert follow-
ing the recent theft of data involv-
ing customers' information from
numerous Florida stores. Con-
sumers who may have used
credit cards at TJ Maxx, Mar-
shalls, AJ Wright or HomeGoods
stores between May 2003 and
December 2006 should closely
monitor their financial state-
ments and credit reports, McCol-
lum cautioned.
TJX Companies, Inc., the par-
ent company of TJ Maxx, Mar-
shalls, HomeGoods and A.J.
Wright stores, recently reported
that its computer systems were
hacked late last year and cus-
tomer data had been stolen.
Company officials, said the hack-
ers broke into a system that man-
ages credit and debit card trans-


actions as well as checks and
merchandise returns for cus-
tomers throughout the United
States and possibly elsewhere. It
is not yet known how much or
what kind of information may
have been taken. Florida has 55
T.J. Maxx stores, 60 Marshalls
stores, 22 HomeGoods stores
and two A.J. Wright stores.
"Identity theft steals not only
money, but also a person's good
name and reputation," Mr.
McCollum said. "I am pleased
that this company is working dili-
gently to protect its customers. I
encourage all Floridians to be
aware and active in protecting
themselves."
According to TJX, the compa-
ny has identified consumers
whose credit card and other pur-
chase information has been
accessed by unauthorized third


parties. The company has also
notified affected credit card com-
panies and banks. Affected con-
sumers may call TJX's toll-free
special assistance number, 1-
866-484-6978. For more informa-
tion, please visit http://www.tjx.
com/tjx_message.html.
If you believe you are a victim
of identity theft, report this to the
police and then request that the
national credit bureaus place a
fraud alert on your credit report.
Notify banks and creditors
involved of questionable charges
or accounts. Keep records of all
telephone calls and follow up in
writing with credit bureaus,
banks and creditors. Victims may
call the Attorney General's Fraud
Hotline at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-
866-966-7226). They may also
visit the Attorney General's web-
site at http://myfloridalegal.com.

mayor cast the deciding vote in
favor of terminating Mr. Daughtrey.'
After that vote, Commissioner
Garrett offered a second motion to
give the position to Vincent Finizio,
who applied for the city manager
position last July.
Again, the motion was second-
ed by Commissioner Miller, with
the mayor voting in favor and
Commissioners Kendall and Asia-
Williams voting against it. The
motion passed.
After the meeting, some resi-

utilized regarding Section 8 hous-
ing and the Pahokee Housing
Authority still has only two proj-
ects 115 units within city lim-
its.
Based on the findings, the
report suggested the city to make
provisions to include a full range
of housing types and options,
with the help of programs such as
the SHIP and HOME programs,
which actually provide prospec-
tive homeowners with those
opportunities.
According to the report, Paho-
kee's Code Enforcement reported
to'FEMA that during the hurri-
canes of 2004 and 2005, about
500 homes were lost, with mobile
homes being the most affected by
them.
The report said that the city
should consider including strate-
gies in combating hurricane dam-
age to its Comprehensive Plan's
Housing Element, including help
from the Florida Comprehensive
Hurricane Damage Mitigation
Program to ensure the strength-
ening of Pahokee's homes in the
event of a natural disaster.

There were numerous other
bruises on the boy throughout his
body not similar to the belt pat-

the boy's skull, as well as a large

the commissioners," said a visibly
upset Betty Boyer, who regularly
attends city meetings.
While the motion was being
considered to terminate his con-
tract, Mr. Daughtrey seemed calm
and relaxed. After the meeting, he
seemed resigned to his fate.
"It's life," said Mr., paughtrey.
"You adjust. You move on."
About his time in Belle Glade,
he said he believes the city is in a
better position now.
"You can't get upset as long as
you know you've done your best
job possible," he said.
The series of events is a remark-
able turnaround from the three
commissioners' decision to hire
Mr. Daughtrey last year despite


which is reportedly in poor condi-
tion.
The plant, located on Rim
Canal Road, suffered major dam-
age during the 2004 and 2005 hur-
ricanes and has yet to see major
improvements, due to a lack of
funding.
The report found that safety
rails need to be added by the city.
Also, the headworks structure,
failing electrical systems, a dilapi-
dated bar screen and the Walker
Process need to be addressed and
rehabilitated, said the report,
major components of the system.
The report said that Palm
Beach County Water Utilities is
planning to improve the head-
works of the plant by constructing
a new tower. Of course, the water
utilities department is construct-
ing a regional'water treatment
plant by May 2008 to serve the
Glades area.
The regional water treatment
plant will be a reverse osmosis
plant and obtain brackish raw
water from the Floridian Aquifer.
The firm recommends the city
investigate available grants to
improve the infrastructure of the
community as a whole.
In economic development, the
report found that Pahokee has a
graduation rate of 46 percent, a 38
percent unemployment rate and
a 53 percent illiteracy rate, with
the median income being about
$27,000 as of the 2000 Census.

public protests by Commissioners
Asia-Williams and Kendall.
The new manager, Mr. Finizio,
came under fire years ago while
city manager for the city of Paho-
kee, after being accused of
allegedly making racist comments
about the city, drawing the ire of
local groups, including the Glades
branch of the NAACP.
His employment with the city
was terminated shortly after the
episode.
Commissioners Asia-Williams
and Kendall could not be reached
for comment because of the FCAT
exams at their schools. Mayor
Sanchez hung the phone when
reached for comment.

with a Downtown Master Plan,
which includes the rehabilitation
of the Prince Theatre, proposed to
become a multiuse facility that
will have classroom space and a
cultural center.
There is currently no timetable
set for the project, though the city
has received $3 million from the
state of Florida for that purpose.
Improvement work at Ever-
glades Adventure, on the other
hand, is scheduled to be complet-
ed this year, which is located on
the Pahokee Marina and Camp-
ground. The facility will include a
marina, restaurant, and rental
cabins.
Other future plans include an
amphitheater.and a hotel devel-
opment located on City Hall prop-
erty.
Jobs will be created as a result
of it, said officials.
City Manager Lillie Latimore
said that she realizes that there
are many challenges ahead, but
the comprehensive plan is a pro-
gressive document headed in the
right direction.
"The Evaluation and Appraisal
Report that is now in progress will
provide the City with an opportu-
nity for greater citizen involve-
ment," said Ms. Latimore. "By
ensuring their involvement, citi-
zens will embrace and escalate
the city's progress."

As she continued talking to
investigators while in detention,
the suspect reportedly said,
"What did I do, God? Why?"
The suspect said the boys
were doing something in their
bedroom that. they weren't sup-
posed to be doing.

"We would like to provide a con-

Palm Beach County Commis-

excited about the courthouse
project.
"The time is now to do some-
thing with the plan that's going
on," said Mr. Santamaria. "I want
to see some results between now
and December."
Mr. Santamaria said asked for
the community's support to see
the project to fruition.
"The first step will consist of
urgent matters to be taken care of
immediately," said Mr. Santa-

14 RELIGION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


New bishop has

agriculture background


The Catholic Diocese of Venice
has a new Bishop.
In January, Bishop John
Nevins, 75, retired. His successor
is Bishop Frank Dewane.
Bishop Dewane was born
March 9, 1950, to Eleanor (Pren-
dergast) and Ben Dewane in
Green Bay, Wis., the third of their
four children. A dairy farm of
approximately 200 acres was the
environment for his early life
where he was raised with his
brother and two sisters. The fami-
ly was part of the St. James Parish
Community in Cooperstown,
Wis., where he also attended ele-
mentary school. He later went to
Denmark High School in Den-
mark, Wis. The recipient of a
bachelor's degree in social sci-
ences from the University of Wis-
consin, Bishop Dewane also has
a master's in international
administration from The Ameri-
can University in Washington,
D.C. Prior to entering seminary
formation, Bishop Dewane
worked in New York City for a
subsidiary of PepsiCo and for the
National Broadcasting Corpora-
tion (NBC) based in Moscow.
Bishop Dewane began his stud-
ies for the priesthood at Notre
Dame University in South Bend,
Ind., where he completed one year
of philosophy. Next he did his theo-
logical studies at the Pontifical Gre-
gorian University in Rome. He then
completed advanced studies in
canon law at the Pontifical Univer-
sity of St. Thomas Aquinas in
Rome. On July 16, 1988, then-Bish-
op Adam J. Maida ordained Bishop
Dewane to the priesthood for serv-
ice in the Diocese of Green Bay.
Following his ordination, Bish-
op Dewane served as an assistant
pastor at Ss. Peter and Paul Parish
in Green Bay and worked at the
diocesan Tribunal. In 1991, he

was sent to serve as a member of
the Permanent Observer Mission
of the Holy See to the United
Nations in New York City. From
1995 to 2001, he worked at the
Pontifical Council "Cor Unum,"
referred to as the charitable arm of
the Holy Father, until being named
under secretary of the Pontifical
Council for Justice and Peace in
2001. Bishop Dewane held this
position until his nomination by
Pope Benedict XVI to be the coad-
jutor bishop of the Diocese of
Venice in Florida.
Bishop Dewane has been a
member of the official delegation
of the Holy See to numerous inter-
national and United Nations con-
ferences and world summits.
Among the topics addressed by
these gatherings were: the envi-
ronment; economic and social
development; population; women
and development; human settle-
ments or housing; the Internation-
al Criminal Court; racism, racial
discrimination, xenophobia and
related intolerance; financing for
development; water; climate
change; and world trade.

If small is all you are prepared for...


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
John and Mike were out fish-
ing. Mike watched John with a
growing curiosity because John
would catch a fish and keep it,
then catch another fish and
throw it away. And John contin-
Sued this with catch after catch.
The really strange part was that it
was always the big ones that
John threw away.
Finally, Mike couldn't contain
his curiosity, so he called out the
obvious question, "How come
you're throwing away the big
ones?" John answered back,
'Oh, because I only have an 8-
inch frying pan!"
In many ways, if small is all
you're prepared for, then small is
all you'll get. That's what the peo-
ple of Nazareth found out when
Jesus came home. In Mark 6:1,
we are told that Jesus went to His


hometown and began to teach in
the synagogue, and many who
heard Him were amazed.
"Where did this man get
these things?" they asked.
"What's this wisdom that has
been given
Him, and that
He even does
miracles? Isn't
this the car-
penter? Isn't
this Mary's
son and the
brother of
James,
Joseph, Judas, John
and Simon?" Hicks
Many took
offense. Jesus commented that
only in His hometown is a
prophet without honor. The King
James Version says bluntly, "He
could do no mighty work there
because of their unbelief."
This incident touches close to
home for those of us who are


church people.
It seems that the people who
knew the most about Jesus
expected the least and they got it!
They had a very small frying pan,
and it wasn't big enough for the
kinds of things Jesus could do.
Nazareth was the one place
Jesus went where they had to
settle for the natural and they
missed the supernatural. And
the scary part is that today we're
Nazareth. We Bible-believers
know a lot about Jesus, just like
His neighbors in Nazareth. We
analyze things just like they did.
If we are not careful, we can find
ourselves so close to Jesus and
so used to Jesus that we put Him
in a box, limiting Him to work
the ways that only seem practi-
cal and sensible to us.
Maybe our being "practical"
and "sensible" our avoidance
of anything that might seem
"radical" or "different" is why
so many Christians have limited


power. We don't pray for God-
sized interventions; we don't
make plans that are so big they
will fail if God isn't in them. We
go to Bible studies, church serv-
ices, and youth groups. We
argue theology, prophecy, and
spiritual gifts. We get involved in
a merry-go-round of Christian
activities, but we don't expect
the supernatural. And when we
don't expect the supernatural,
we become mired in the mud of
spiritual mediocrity.
In reality, the more we learn
about Jesus, the more we should
believe Him for. We serve and
we worship an awesome, all-
powerful Savior who is a mira-
cle-worker! We miss His mira-
cles when we don't believe Him
for miracles! If small is all you're
prepared for, then small is all
you'll get. It's time to get a bigger
frying pan and let the Lord fill it
with something bigger than we
ever dreamed!


Walking on water not always impossible


By The Reverend Samuel S.
SThomas, Ph. D.+
- Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Walking on water was not a
big deal up north during the win-
ters. In one place where I lived,
each winter a group in the com-
munity wodld
place a junk "
car in the mid-
dle of one the ,.
lakes in town .".
and wager on
the exact date
the car would
sink. I learned
a few inches of
ice could sup- SamuelS.
port quite a Thomas
weight and
you could easily "walk on
water" if you waited for a good
freeze. Fishing there was differ-
ent in the winters' you'd chop a
hole in the ice and drop a line
through. People actually built
Cabins on the ide with their fish-
Sing hole in the middle; fishing
with all of the comforts of home
Except central heat!
It was during the "fourth
watch" in the night that Jesus
Sent walking on the water, only
Sit was not frozen. His disciples
had left him and sailed off,


apparently the water was rough
and the boat was buffeted by
waves (Matthew 14:24). They
were quite a distance from shore
and all of these things are
enough to get the attention of
any sailor. Then, Jesus decided
to join them and walks out to the
disciple's boat (vs. 36). Matthew
reports that they were "terrified."
That's sometimes the reaction to
anything we see and don't
understand; it can be scary...or
not scary depending on how we
look at it. Walking on water as it
happened in the Biblical story,
would surely get my attention;
but I might not be afraid and ask
"How is that done?" rather than
being upset by it. My daughter,
when she was growing up, had a
time when she was afraid of the
vacuum cleaner but she quickly
outgrew it. Our dog is sensitive
to some loud noises; she has
become conditioned to other
noises just as loud. It doesn't
seem to be how "strange" some-
thing might appear, but how
much of it is a part of our every-
day world. I suspect the disci-
ples, when they saw Jesus walk-
ing on the water, were "terrified"
because the sea was rough, the
waves were buffeting their boat,
they were far from shore, and


when they saw the Lord walking
on the water, this is one more
thing that shouldn't be happen-
ing and the already-fearful
moments add to the unnatural
event they saw.
I've noticed that people's
states of mind affect how they go
through "scary" times. People
who are looking forward to a
vacation enjoy the air trip more
than those who are facing diffi-
culties at the end of the flight.
People take operations better
when they know it will bring
relief from a long-standing ill-
ness rather than for something
that is not understood. We do
better with crises on the job after
a calm night at home instead of
coming in when there have been
difficulties the night before. The
"carry-over" plays a large role in
how we face unexpected things
and cause us to be afraid when
we would otherwise be curious,
be terrified when we simply
don't understand, have some-
thing get us down when other-
wise we would be able to take it
in our stride. Something hap-
pened at the conclusion of
Jesus' walking on water and
reaching the disciples. He invites
Peter to do the impossible; to
walk on water himself.


Matthew tells us that Peter
"got down out of the boat,
walked on the water, and came
toward Jesus (vs. 29)" It was
when he realized that he was
doing something out-of-the-
ordinary and when the wind
came up once more, that Peter
paniced. He is rescued, they
climbed into the boat and they
sailed on. It is when we realize
that we can do things too, even if
we don't understand it all, even
if it seems unnatural to us, even
if it may seem impossible, that
great things can happen. The
miracle? The miracle may be in
seeing something for what it is;
walking on water under natural
circumstances like freezing or
under unnatural-miraculous
ones. It may be in seeing what
happens in our lives that we
don't understand as opportuni-
ties to learn and grow instead of
coupling them with past fears or
disappointments. It may be in
looking for God's hand in what is
going on around us instead of
recoiling in fright. Good things
happen when we "cast off the
baggage" that holds us back and
take each.thing as an opportuni-
ty and maybe even a potential
blessing with it.

get down to business.

Work with a banker who helps you get it done.
When it comes to financial matters, you have no patience for fast
talkers. You want experienced, local decision makers right across
the desk, and you want a response in a hurry.
Oh, and you also want convenient hours, handy locations and someone
who actually answers the phone Seems perfectly reasonable to us.
Seems like you ought to come in to Seacoast.

Feelgood about your bank
