Finizio's career reviewed


A look into
new manager's
past in area

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADES As new
Belle Glade City Manger Vincent
Finizio tries put the past behind
him, community leaders remem-
ber his controversial tenure as


the former City Manager of Paho-
kee.
About four years ago, Martin
Luther King Park in Pahokee was
trashed, prompting Mr. Finizio to
become outraged.
According to an early 2003
article printed in The Sun, Mr.
Finizio said that many of the over
400 people gathering at the park
littered the area with glass bottles
shattered on the cement and in
outlying areas of the park.


In the article, it stated that Mr.
Finizio noticed something about
the group, made up of adults he
believes ranged in ages from 20
to 40 years: "There was not one
Latino or Caucasian in the entire
group," he said. "These people
who did this are slobs, what else
is there to it."
The comments made by Mr.
Finizio that infuriated the Paho-
kee city commission as well as
many in the Glades community


Living the dream: Oratorical contest winner performs

followed in this sequence,
according to that early 2003 arti-
cle:
"To the critics who say this is
just a Black thing, it's true, it is a
Black thing," said Mr. Finizio in
the article. "The Black communi-
ty leaders aren't doing anything,
they're turning awiay. Caring
Afro-American families are being
held hostage in their homes by
large groups of booze drinking,
pot smoking, disruptive people


who have no pride in our com-
munity."
Not long after those com-
ments were made by Mr. Finizio,
Pahokee Commissioner Henry
Crawford said that he remem-
bers nearby churches and the
community alike asking Mr.
Finizio to offer an apology.
Mr. Crawford said that the
apology request was in regards to

Belle Glade Fire Fighter



recognized by the city


Lieutenant served
for 27 years

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The city
commission has presented for-
mer fire lieutenant Devon
Edwards with a retirement
recognition award.
Mr. Edwards is being recog-
nized for his 27 years of service
to the Glades area.
Mr. Edwards said that at first,
he didn't look to get into the fire
rescue industry, until a special
person in Mr. Edwards' life
influenced him to become a
firefighter.
Since 1978, Mr. Edwards has
been with the Fire Rescue, with
his first two years at South Bay


and the rest of the time here in
Belle Glade.
Mr. Edwards said that
throughout his career, he has
witnessed many improve-
ments with the operations of
.the fire rescue, including
equipment needed to fight
fires, the modernization of fire
engines, extrication equipment
and rescue units.
For much of Mr. Edwards'
time working for the fire rescue,
he said that he was Ihe only
African-American serving in the
department.
However, when Mr. Edwards
looks back on his life and career,
he inevitably looks at his life and
most remembers his childhood.
Born in Jamaica, Mr. Edwards
remembers his stepfather teach-
ing him the importance of man-
ners, discipline, and a great work


ethic, which carried on through-
out his life.
"As long as you try to do
good, good things will happen to
you," said Mr. Edwards.
When Mr. Edwards came to
Florida at age 16, he spent a half
day at school and the other half
working as a busboy at the Days
Inn restaurant.
Mr. Edwards said that it was-
n't the greatest job, but it helped
him develop some skills needed
in his current profession.
"Young people need a profes-
sion," said Mr. Edwards.
Mr. Edwards graduated from
Glades Central High School in
1978. He went back to school to
become a certified fire fighter
and then started his job in West
Palm Beach.

The Muck City Champions
Committee is hosting a celebra-
tion to honor the three local foot-
ball teams on Saturday for their

tral Raiders in an event that had

According to the committee,
the celebration, which is being

Takeover," will also feature thir-
teen current and former NFL
players, including Anquin
Boldin, Santonio Holmes and
Fred Taylor.
The football players are going

proud of what he has done to help the Glades community
throughout his career and life.

New members welcomed to GCWC aint cni


One of the very first organiza-
tions in Moore Haven, the
Glades County Woman's Club
(GCWC) members listened and
smiled as proud sponsors intro-
duced their new members at a
Tea Reception held at Candi
Snow's home on River Road in
Glades County during their
monthly meeting. Mrs. Snow has
a talent for making everyone feel
welcome, serving tea in antique
cups and saucers, cucumber
sandwiches, June Morn-
ingstar's famous cream cheese-
olive sandwiches and home-
baked sweets.
New Members include Kacie
Swafford, sponsored by Bette
Davis, Megan Shepherd, spon-
sored by Barbara Brown, Lela
Brown, sponsored by Waba Rec-
tor, Carol Butler sponsored by
June Morningstar.
The Glades County Woman's
Club members work year round
to raise funds for scholarships
given in May to two deserving
Moore Haven High School grad-
uates. Fundraisers include
preparing and serving food at
the annual Birding Festival, raf-
fles of handmade items and their
annual style show.

The club, over 75 years old,
used to own one of Moore
Haven's historic dwellings but
due to the deteriorating condi-
tion of the house, they sold it


several years ago and have been
meeting a member's homes and
at the library. There was much
discussion over meeting sites,
program agendas and increasing


the scholarship amounts.
If you are interested in joining
this venerable club, phone a
member for further information.
946-0520 or 946-0579.


Glades County Woman's Club style show


Thanks to the efforts of all the
members of the Glades County
Woman's Club and many good
friends and neighbors their
recent annual luncheon and style
show was a huge success. Hav-
ing outgrown the Ferris Davis
American Legion Hall, they were
given the use of Robin's Nest, an
RV park north of Moore Haven on
U.S. 27. Owned by the Robert
Joyner family, the park's club-


house was the perfect site for
Loire's Dress Shop of Lake Placid
to show off her fabulous fash-
ions. For some unknown rea-
sons, club members automatical-
ly become runway models when
clothed in the trendiest styles.
These delightful members
seemed born to stride down run-
ways and each just fit beautifully
in all of Loie's outfits whether for-
mal of elegant casual.


Covered dishes are the high-
light of the event with everyone
competing to see whose creative
salad disappeared first. The
luncheon rivaled any five star
restaurant and the table center-
pieces featured photos of our
Moore Haven High school senior
students. Proceeds from the show
help finance two scholarships for
local youngsters each year. Mem-
bers agreed that bringing in many


new and younger members has
helped spark new enthusiasm.
These new members include sev-
eral "snow birds" who always
have new experiences and ideas
to share. Anyone interested in
joining can call any GCWC mem-
ber for further information. Mean-
time, we'll see you at the Birding
Festival where we prepare and
serve tasty lunches. For more
information call 946-0520.

PALM BEACH COUNTY -
Yes, that's right, we are open for
business 24/7.
That's because the new
Exemption E-File is up and run-
ning on the Property Appraiser's
popular Web site:
pbcgov.com/PAPA. And that
means new home owners do
not have to leave home to file
their 2007 Homestead Exemp-
tion.
They can do it online, in the
comfort of their own home,
Property Appraiser Gary R.
Nikolits, CFA, announced Thurs-
day, Feb. 8.
"We are excited to launch our
Web site's Exemption E-File,"
said Mr. Nikolits. "This feature
was the one the public request-
ed the most and we are very
pleased to provide it."
The Exemption E-File service
also means no traffic and park-
ing hassles and best of all, no
long lines at the Property
Appraiser's five Service Centers.
Crowds typically build up in Feb-
ruary every year as the March 1,
Homestead Exemption filing
deadline looms.
"Exemption E-File stream-
lines the application process and
is changing the way government
does business," said Mr. Nikolits.
"Our office is one of only five in
the state's 67 counties to provide
E-File for homestead exemp-
tions and we are very proud to

government more efficient and

Previously, new homeowners
could only download the appli-
cation from the Property
Appraiser's Web site,
pbcgov.com/PAPA. They would
then either mail the application
or visit the Service Centers in
West Palm Beach, Delray Beach,


Palm Beach Gardens, Royal
Palm Beach or Belle Glade.
On the site's Home Page,
users can now go directly to
online filing either by clicking
the Exemption E File navigation
bar or by the Exemption E File
link. Easy instructions guide the
user to successfully complete
Exemption E File.
"The process is seamless,
which is a hallmark of the entire
PAPA site," said Dorothy Jacks,
Director of Taxpayer Services at
the Property Appraiser's Office.
"We received 20 applications
without a hitch the first hour E-
File was up."

Mr. Nikolits commissioned
Palm Beach County's Informa-

the new online service. ISS
designed the original PAPA site,
which was launched in 2004. Ms.
Jacks lead the effort to expand
PAPAS services to Exemption E-
File and she was in charge of the
project to develop the Property
Appraiser's Web site in 2004.
"PAPA began the process by
providing quick access to public
records, which is something Mr.
Nikolits strongly believes in, and
we are bringing even more serv-
ices to the public with Exemp-
tion-E File," said Ms. Jacks.
The site has been expanded
several times since then, includ-
ing enhanced mapping features
and direct links to the Clerk of
Courts and the Tax Collector's
Office. In 2005, the International
Webby Awards named the site
"Webby Worthy." The award
honors Web sites that set Inter-
net standards.

Countywide clean highway campaign


PALM BEACH Eight thou-
sand, five hundred pounds (8500
Ibs) of litter is collected daily on
Interstate 95 (1-95) in Palm Beach
County. The cost associated with
the cleanup is approximately
$930,000 annually, Florida Depart-
ment of Transportations (FDOT)
officials announced. To address
the problem, the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation is plan-
ning an extensive "Clean High-
way" campaign that will include a
crackdown on violators.

Purpose of
+Campaign
The campaign's purpose is to
fight the amount of litter seen
along the 1-95 corridor and other
roadways in Palm Beach County.
The campaign will include: Public
education and awareness on the
definition of litter: Public educa-
tion of the safety issues for
motorists caused by litter; Infor-
mation about fines and punish-
ments for those caught littering;
Signs in local businesses support-
ing the campaign; and Participa-


tion from law enforcement and
other government Agencies.

Definition of Litter
According to the Florida Litter
Law (403.413), litter is defined as
"any garbage; rubbish; trash;
refuse; can; bottle; box; contain-
er; paper; tobacco product; tire;
appliance; mechanical equip-
ment or part; building or con-
struction material; tool; machin-
ery; wood; motor vehicle or
motor vehicle part; vessel; air-
craft; farm machinery or equip-
ment; sludge from a waste treat-
ment facility, water supply
treatment plant, or air pollution
control facility; or substance in
any form resulting from domestic,
industrial, commercial, mining,
agricultural, or governmental
operations."
Littering Fines
Below are the state-wide Litter
Enforcement Statutes. Higher
fines may apply in local commu-
nities.
Littering less than 15 pounds
- $50 fine. Court may also order


the violator to pick up litter or per-
form other labor commensurate
with the offense.
Littering between 15-500
pounds and not for commercial
gain is a first degree misde-
meanor. Court shall require the
violator to pick up litter or per-
form other labor commensurate
with the offense.
Littering more than 500
pounds or any amount for com-
mercial gain is a third degree
felony.
Per the statute, the owner or
operator of the vehicle and/or the
actual person littering can be held
accountable for the offense when
the litter is thrown from the vehi-
cle.

What Can You Do?
Littering is an individual behav-
ioral problem or a business prob-
lem that is becoming a problem
for our community. Changing a
societal norm like littering begins
with each of us. Each person
must accept responsibility for
their actions and influence the
actions of others around them in


their business, home, school and
community. By modeling proper
trash and waste disposal, you will
cause others to consider their
actions, too.

Opportunities
to get involved:
Join the Florida Department of
Transportation's Adopt-A-High-
way Program. Your group or
organization will be able to adopt
a stretch of state highway and
pick up litter on the shoulders of
'your' highway. For information
call FDOT's Palm Beach Opera-
tions Center at: (561)-432-4966;
Report illegal dumping on state
highways by calling 1-800-BAN-
LITTer.

Students today have more school information


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Education has
announced that students will now
be able to review the major areas
of interest to be available at the
high school they plan to attend. In
December, the Department of
Education approved a statewide
list of 442 major areas of interest.
School districts had until January
to choose which major areas to
offer at each high school. Next
year's ninth graders will be the
first to choose a major area of
interest as part of new graduation
requirements taking effect.
"I am excited that next year's
incoming high school students
will be the first to have the oppor-
tunity to choose an area that inter-
ests them," said Education Com-


missioner John Winn. "I have
been talking with eighth grade
students around Florida and they
are excited about studying areas
of interest to them."
Students will be able to select
their major area of interest
through Florida's online student
advising system, the Florida Acad-
emic Counseling and Tracking for
Students, or FACTS.org. Eighth
grade students can complete an
ePersonal Planner (ePEP), an
interactive course planner for
middle and high school students,
based on the major area of inter-
est and on their educational goals.
Students can locate the high
school they will attend and review
the major areas of interest that
will be available. Once enrolled, a


student may change his or her
major area of interest the follow-
ing year with no penalty.
"Students show no hesitation
about selecting an area of interest
because they know they are free
to change direction," continued
Commissioner Winn. "Our stu-
dents are more goal oriented than
we give them credit for."
Major areas are available for
students in high schools through-
out Florida, including students
with disabilities working toward a
special diploma, students
enrolled in career academies or
magnet programs, and students
in charter schools. Major areas of
interest include a wide array of
subjects, ranging from Account-
ing and Finance, Landscape


Architecture, Health Care, Televi-
sion Production and Computer
Systems as well as many in the
arts and vocational areas.
Graduation requirements for
students entering high school in
the 2007-08 school year include
earning 16 core academic credits
and eight elective credits in order
to graduate with a high school
diploma. Core requirements
consist of four credits each of
English and math, three credits
of social studies and science, one
credit of fine arts, and one credit
in physical education and health.
Out of the eight elective credits,
students choose a major area of
interest that includes four credits
in a common area, such as
sequential courses in a career


and technical program, fine and major areas of interest, visit
performing arts, or academic http://www.fldoe.org/HSMajors/L

credits are electives. For information about the

Coal is generatiiig more and more interest in the energy industry due to the
development of highly efficient modern coal plants and the latest advance-
ments in pollution control technologies. Highly efficient means substantial-
ly less coal is used to produce the same amount of electricity and with fewer
emissions than older, traditional coal-fired power plants. Florida Power &
Light's goal is to meet reliably its customers' growing demand for electricity
in an environmentally responsible manner. To ensure that power is there
when it is needed and to protect against potential interruptions to the
state's natural gas supply due to hurricanes or other unforeseen events, FPL
has sought to diversify its fuel sources, focusing on abundant and lower cost
fuels such as coal.


not yet provide a highly reliable source of electricity. More significantly to
the local community, IGCC is not as efficient as USCPC meaning more
coal would be required to produce the same amount of electricity. And,
while IGCC would require substantial reengineering and rebuilding of the
plant to incorporate carbon capture and sequestration technologies when
they become commercially available, FPL's proposed plant design can be
readily modified to add emerging technologies.

When looking for a reliable, efficient and proven method for generating
electricity for its 4.4 million customers and growing FPL chose
USCPC technology for a new power plant that's proposed for a location
near Moore Haven. FPL carefully considered all options available before


After an extensive evaluation of
modern coal technologies, FPL
determined that an advanced tech-
nology called ultra-supercritical
pulverized coal (USCPC) is the best
option to meet this need for reliable
power with environmental protec-
tion designed into the plant.
Ultra-supercritical refers to the
highest level of efficiency and will
set a new standard for coal genera-
tion in this country. This industry-

leading generation technology is being proposed for the FPL Glades Power
Park and will be coupled with an extensive array of advanced pollution
control technologies to minimize air emissions. The result is an advanced
technology coal plant design using an abundantly available resource that
provides a reliable supply of electricity to meet our future needs.

Another developing technology that uses coal to produce electricity is
called Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) technology. Unlike
the USCPC technology proposed for the FPL Glades Power Park, IGCC is
not yet a proven-technology in the commercial size needed to meet our
customers' needs. IGCC is more expensive to build and operate and does

the best choice to produce reliable
power for our customers. The pro-
posed FPL Glades Power Park will, in
fact, surpass the latest, stringent envi-
ronmental regulations with a wide
margin of environmental protection.

the allegedly racial comments
made by Mr. Finizio. Mr. Finizio
was also thought to be responsi-
ble for the cutting of the basket-
ball nets to keep kids from playing
basketball in the evening.
"Mr. Finizio's actions upset
the whole community." said Mr.
Crawford. "People felt like he
was punishing them."
When asked specially about
the alleged racial comments, Mr.
Crawford said that he wasn't
sure if Mr. Finizio actually made
those comments. Mr. Crawford
said that he took Mr. Finizio at his
word when Mr. Finizio told Mr.
Crawford that he didn't make
those comments.
That incident, along with alle-
gations that Mr. Finizio talked
with the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office about a possible
takeover without the city com-
mission's approval, prompted
the city commission to terminate
Mr. Finizio's employment after
only three months on the job.
In May of 2003, Mr. Crawford
made the motion to terminate
Mr. Finizio's employment, with
Commissioners Keith Babb and
Allie Biggs voting in favor of ter-
minating Mr. Finizio. Vice Mayor
Gary McEntire and Mayor J.P.
Sasser opposed the termination.
Although the mayor was one
of two commissioners who
opposed Mr. Finizio's termina-
tion in the voting, Mayor Sasser
said that he definitely wanted Mr.
Finizio to be fired.


Edwards
Continued From Page 1
One experience that Mr.
Edwards fondly remembers
regarding his career was when he
saw an accident at Cardinal New-
man High School, a car flipped
over into a canal.
Mr. Edwards remembers the
wheels being up in the air, with a
girl face down in the water. He said
that he went down and grabbed

City will identify
funding to help
new owner

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Patricia Mojica is
the new owner of Mrs. Georgia's
Catfish.
Ms. Mojica aims to win back
customers and has developed and
honed her customer service and
ownership skills to prepare for her
newventure.
She began working at Subway
years ago. Eventually, she moved
up to supervisor, where she first
learned about the ownership
aspect of a restaurant business and
decided she wanted to do it on her
own.
Ms. Mojica said she knew just
the right secret to success: display-
ing an exemplary form of cus-
tomer service to keep guests
returning and feeling right at home.
In October, she bought the
building at 2812 E. Main St. in
Pahokee.
Before Ms. Mojica came to Mrs.
Georgia's Catfish, the inside of the
restaurant was completely refur-
bished by James Jones, the princi-


"The reason why I voted no
during that meeting was because
I wanted Mr. Finizio's comments
on record. He was not allowed to
speak," said Mayor Sasser.
Mayor Sasser said that rather
than voting to immediately termi-
nate Mr. Finizio, he wanted Mr.
Finizio to explain his actions to
the commission, based on the
city charter.
"Firing Mr. Finizio immediate-
ly would allow him to attack me
on the Internet when I was to run
for re-election", said Mayor Sass-
er.
According to Mayor Sasser,
that is exactly what happened.
The mayor said that when he
ran for re-election in -March, Mr.
Finizio on an online forum
blamed his past actions on the
mayor. The mayor said Mr.
Finizio accused him of being a
racist and that Mr. Finizio
claimed that he was only follow-
ing the mayor's orders.
When asked about Mr.
Finizio's hiring in Belle Glade, the
Mayor Sasser could only look
back to what had happened dur-
ing Mr. Finizio's tenure in Paho-
kee.
"Mr. Finizio's actions in Belle
Glade will speak louder than any
of my words," said Mayor Sasser.
Another leader who has
shown concern about the past
and present incidents is Linda
Johnson, the president of the
Glades Area Branch of the
NAACP and Area Director of
Palm Beach, Broward and Dade
Counties.
Ms. Johnson said that she
feels that Mr. Finizio has a past


the girl by her feet and pulled her
straight out of the canal.
Mr. Edwards said that he has
worked with a lot of good people,
with Firefighter Paramedic Rebec-
ca Clevenger being one of them.
"The city is lucky to have Mr.
Edwards," said Ms. Clevenger.
"Citizens and fellow workers
appreciate the fact that he's knowl-
edgeable, a teacher, and a very
good mentor to us all."

Committee members said there
is a possibility that large national

ESPN Radio, local radio and televi-

Patricia Mojica is hopeful that
the city will help her improve

pal owner of Poppa Jimmy's in
Pahokee.
Ms. Mojica said that one neat
feature of the restaurant is a plas-
ma TV, which customers could
watch while they are eating.
"The restaurant is a quiet, safe,
and clean place for families to
come eat," said Ms. Mojica.
Ms. Mojica said that the condi-
tion of the restaurant is not where
she would like it to be at this time,
but hopes that the City of Pahokee


with the local community of
Pahokee that was never resolved.
"It would make one think if
Mr. Finizio had enough time to
change his perception of African-
American leadership since the
MLK Park incident," said Ms.
Johnson. "He should have
resolved the issue."
Ms. Johnson said that in
regards to the hiring of Mr. Finizio
by the Belle Glade city commis-
sion, it doesn't matter what she
or some of the community
thinks.
"The city is headed where the
majority of the commission
wants it to go." said Ms. Johnson.
Vice Mayor Donald Garrett
believes that the city is headed in
the right direction with the hiring
of Mr. Finizio.
"I believe that Mr. Finizio's hir-
ing will lift the morale of city
employees and the city as a
whole", said Mr. Garrett.
Mr. Garrett said that when for-
mer city manager Newall Daugh-
trey was hired, the morale of the
city employees was the lowest
it's ever been since he was in
office in 2000.
"The city morale was low
because Mr. Daughtrey never
met with employees and his
office door was always closed,"
said Mr. Garrett, who along with
Mayor Ray Torres Sanchez and
Commissioner Shelly Miller
voted to hire Mr. Daughtrey. "Mr.
Daughtrey didn't return phone
calls to citizens or business lead-
ers."
Mr. Garrett also felt that there
was a time for change because
the city's business couldn't be

ten dogs were suffering from mal-
nutrition.
According to the report, mal-

Additionally, all ten dogs tested
positive for heartworms, intestin-


history, the three local high school
teams did the seemingly impossi-
ble and each brought home a state
championship title.
Ann Marie Sorrell, President and
CEO of Upscale Events by Mosaic,
is one of the primary organizers of
this event and looks forward to the
experience.
"I'm excited to be involved in
coordinating the event," said Ms.
Sorrell. "It's my way of giving back
to the community that gave to me."
Committee members said
donations are welcome in any
amount that members of the com-


will work with her restaurant to
help her bring it back into shape.
Cleveland Robinson, the com-
munity and economic develop-
ment coordinator for the City of
Pahokee, said that the city is cur-
rently helping the catfish restaurant
with its employment, as it currently
has only five employees.
Mr. Robinson said that in the
near future, more government
money will be poured in to the
restaurant through grants, as there
is also a need for renovations on
the exterior side of the building.
"The paperwork should be
filled out soon," said Mr. Robinson.
"We'll get it done."
Mr. Robinson said the applica-
tion will include tax designations
and government assistance, which
also consists of Enterprise Zone
Tax Credits and Small Business
Association help.
The monies, if approved,
should be received later this year,
according to Mr. Robinson.
Mrs. Georgia's Catfish is located
at 28,12 E. Main Street in Pahokee.

handled properly due to dis-
sentions from two of the com-
missioners in relation to Mr.
Daughtrey.
Ms. Johnson also said that she
believes that the city commission
is divided, but for different rea-
sons.
"Some commissioners are
representative of a selected
group of people," said Ms. John-
son. "Decisions made by the
commission are not supportive
of the total community."
Ms. Johnson said the majority
of the commissioners have disre-
garded the opinion of the citizens
who have not had an opportunity
to be heard regarding issues that
would warrant extensive dia-
logue. More strictly followed
measures to limit time allotted to
public comment during meet-
ings have been implemented.
"It is unfortunate that all com-
missioners are not allowed the
opportunity as leaders to review
pertinent agenda information",
said Ms. Johnson. "In regards to
not having the opportunity to
review the information, the likeli-
hood of their constituents is at
stake."
Mr. Garrett said Mr. Finizio has
asked each commissioner to
cease finger pointing and work
together to better the city of Belle
Glade.
"If all five commissioners will
give Mr. Finizio a chance to
implement his policies and sup-
port him, Belle Glade will be a
better and beautiful place for all
people", said Mr. Garrett.

When interviewed by the sher-

Hendry County Speedway offers racing excitement


By Linda Sinkula
Special to INI Florida
Hendry County Speedway
brings racing excitement to the
South Lake Okeechobee area. Rac-
ing is already under way, and the
Grand Opening will be March 10.
Feb. 10 Race Results:
The Mini Stock Division was
an exiting 9 car feature. Jack
McClain in the #26 had a real
good night going in the early
stages. The lead would soon be
taken away by Mark Barlow In
the #4 car. Mark went on to
resist challenges from Pete
Jacobs in the J5 car. The race
was a battle all the way to the
last corner where Barlow slid a
little up the track giving one last
chance for a run on the bottom
to Jacobs. At the line Barlow
took the win.

7th #32 Sandy Wilcox
8th #57 Zach Perman
9th #75 Shal Ritenour
The Bomber Division was
even more exciting to watch. Thre
cars went at it, lap after lap for the
lead. It was a 15 lap race and #26


Steve Dielman had to fend off
both #12 EddieLawler and the
#8 of Ed Steinhoff every lap. Both
drivers were up along side of him
several times but it was dielman
with the win.

The Late Models were shown
the way around the track by #97
Justin Choquette. Justin had the
great handle on that car from the
time the track was soaked in the
beginning of practice to the last lap
of the feature on a blue groove
race track. Michael Cherry never
let him get too far away but could
not get a run on him for the lead.

The Show we all were waiting
for was the Alied Mortgage Street
Stock Elimination. It was worth
the wait. The final feature of the
evening took the track before 10


p.m. and went pretty smoothly for
a 20 car field. 25 cars showed up
to compete and the top 6 out of
three heat races advanced to the
feature. I remember I was com-
menting on Jesse brown running
in 4th place in his heat going into
the last lap. It didn't look like he
was going to have a real good
starting spot for the feature. Not
giving up a bit he passed two cars
on the last lap finished second.
One of the other recent feature
winners #1H Tommy Hill was not
as fortunate. His heat race earned
him a middle of the pack start and
it was not going to be his night.
Tommy left the track early. I
started seeing some smoke at the
end of the straights and he soon
pulled off the track. May have
been overheating due to some
contact he had made battling in
the middle of the field. I thought I
heard a pop just before he slowed
and pulled of the track. I hope it
wasn't a blown motor. With 18
cars secured in the field 5 cars
took battle just after intermission
for the last two transfer spots to
the feature. The lead was
exchanged between all drivers in
the eight lap dash.
The #26 David McCormack
got the top spot with #88 Bob
Cook coming in second.
This all set the stage for the 50
lap feature, with a stop halfway


for a splash of fuel. There was a
lot of bumping and banging as 20
cars tried to sort out there running
order. Although the drivers did an
awesome job lining up on the
restarts, there were some acci-
dents that put some cars on the
sidelines. #82 Rick Sterk had a
spin in Turn 2 and got slammed
hard head-on by #89 Greg
Crowe. Crowe's car, damaged
heavily, could not go on. Some-
how the #82 looked unharmed.
Later on, Sterk's car was also
unable to complete the race.
#38 Lenny Gorman was run-
ning top five all night but a poke
to his radiator had him running
about 240 he said. When the race
was red flagged for a blown
engine and resulting small fire
under the #59 car, driven by Joel
Goldfrank, Lenny had to shut the
motor down and could not retire.
This was just the first half of
the race. After the lap 23 caution
the call was made to stop the race
and refuel the cars. Jesse Brown
had found his way to the front of
the field and with only 11 cars left,
the second half of the race had
fewer cautions and Jesse held off
challenges from #64 Tim Powers.
A great lap after lap battle was
had by #32 Robert Vaugnhn and
the # 26 of David McCormack.

ify into the race by winning the B

Wrestlers grapple with three days of play


Thursday night Clewiston's
Wrestling Team took on Naples
High School in a home dual
meet. Starting at 103 for Clewis-
ton was Bryan Bacallao, at 125
was Brandon Caulkins, at 130
was Jared Bacallao, at 135 was
Mason Cole, at 140 was Joey
Cordova, at 145 for Arsenio
Ramirez, at 152 was Damarian
Allen, at 160 was James Cama-
ratta, at 171 was Alton Edmond,
at 189 was Jamar Boykin, at 215
was Adam Trevino, and at HWT
was Troy Kornya. Naples is a Dis-
trict opponent for Clewiston so
every match matters not only in
the dual but in the fight for posi-
tion at districts on February 2 at
Golden Gate High School. Catch-
ing big wins for Clewiston was
Brandon Caulkins, Joey Cordo-
va, Arsenio Ramirez, Damarian
Allen, Alton Edmond, and Adam
Trevino. Adam Trevino defeated
the #9 ranked Cameron Lloyd of
Naples in a close match up. The
final dual score was a close 38-
34 with Naples winning in the
last match of the night to take
the lead. Although Clewiston lost
by 4 points, they had to give
Naples 12 points for 112 lb and
119 lb weight classes that were
not filled.
Friday night Clewiston trav-
eled north to Live Oak, Florida to
take on Wakulla High School and
University Christian High School
in duals. Wakulla is a tough team
from the north and made for a
good match with Clewiston.
Clewiston, still forfeiting 12
points to Wakulla, put up a good
fight losing 44-33. Wins for
Clewiston came from Brandon
Caulkins, Joey Cordova, Arsenio
Ramirez, Damarian Allen, Alton
Edmond, and Troy Kornya. Uni-
versity Christian High School was
next for the Tigers. The Tigers
were ready defeating the Jack-
sonville team 51-12. Joey Cordo-
va of Clewiston defeated #7
ranked Craig Ruzzo of University
Christian 18-4.
Saturday was the individual
tournament. The #1 teams from
Alabama, Pratville High School,
and Texas, Copell High School,
were attending the tournament.
Other tough Florida teams that
were there were Suwannee,
Wakulla, Durant, and Lincoln. "It
seemed like there was at least 4
kids ranked in one state or the
other in each weight class," says
Coach Alford. This proved to be
Clewiston's biggest challenge this

season, not only wrestling at a
tough tournament on the road 5
1/2 hours from home, but also
wrestling 3 days in a row against
tough competition. Last year only
2 wrestlers from Clewiston man-
aged to place at this tournament.
At the end of a long hard day,
Clewiston represented our town


very well. At 140 Joey Cordova
wrestled a tough day and finished
out 4th, only losing to the Univer-
sity Christian wrestler that he had
faced the night before in the
quarter finals and in the consola-
tion finals. At 145 Arsenio
Ramirez placed 4th losing in the
semi finals to a 3 time state cham-

Letters of Intent
Three members of Clewiston's State Championship Finalist
team signed letters of intent last Wednesday for college
scholarships. John Melton (left) and Omar Smith (right) will
be attending Carson Newman College in Jefferson City,
Tenn. Johnny Jones (center) will be heading for Marshall
University in Huntington, W.Va. Tiger Head Coach Larry
Antonacci spoke at the signing ceremony and congratulated
the players for their accomplishments. Melton was a stand-
out as a wide receiver, defensive back and kick return spe-
cialist. Jones anchored one end of the Tiger defensive line
and Smith was a standout at cornerback and wide receiver.
Melton and Jones were named to the Class 2A All State
Team designated by the Florida Sportwriters Association.

pion from Alabama, Pratville by 4
points. At 189 Jamar Boykin
placed 4th for the Tigers losing to
the #1 ranked Suwannee
wrestler in the first round in a
very physical match up. Jamar
battled back to the consolation
finals to lose 0-1 to the #4 ranked
Alabama wrestler from Pratville.
At 215 Adam Trevino placed 3rd
wrestling an outstanding tourna-
ment defeating the Wakulla
wrestler that had beaten him the
night before. Placing 2nd for the
Tiger was senior Jared Bacallao.
Jared won in the 1st round in
overtime for the win against
Durant and defeated a very athlet-
ic competitor from Alabama in
the semi finals in a close match
that was 0-0 for the first 2 periods.
In the finals Jared lost a well
fought 5-2 match against the
Texas team Copell.
Overall the Tigers finished 6th
at the tournament with Pratville
1st, Copell 2nd, Suwannee 3rd,
Durant 4th, Lincoln 5th, Clewis-
ton 6th, University Christian 7th ,
Wakulla 8th, and Middleburg 9th.

Love and the philosopher's stone


By Jacde Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Someone has compared love to a
philosopher's stone, because it turns
all it touches into gold.
In ancient times, the philoso-
pher's stone was widely sought but
never found. Alchemists searched
diligently for this unknown substance
which they believed would change
base metals into gold. But no one
ever discovered it and the philoso-
pher's stone became a myth.
Nothing in the realm of things has
the power to bring us true and lasting
riches, but love does have power to
transform the base metals of life into
gold of rich experiences.
Even the everyday chores of wash-
ing dishes or shoveling dirt can be
made easier, even enjoyable, when
they are done in love. If you are doing
a job for someone you love, the tools
seem lighter and the whole task
becomes a pleasure rather than a
chore. If you are doing some type of


work that you love, the power of love
makes the job easier and enables you
to be more successful in your efforts.
If you work from the love of life and
the love of opportunity to express life,
then all things will work with you to
bring a new joy and new satisfaction
into all that you do.
Love can transform experiences in
human relationships. Many persons
go through life expecting problems
and negative attitudes from others
and they are not disappointed. The
more they approach others with the
expectation of being cheated or mis-
treated in some way, the more often
they are able to point to their difficult
experiences and say, "See, I knew it
would happen!"
It isn't necessary to wait for others
to love first. When you project your
own love of good and God in every
man, the situation is changed instant-
ly. It may take a little time for the
transformation to be accomplished
in other ways, but the catalyst starts
to work the moment you begin to feel


and express love.
Love has healing power that can
be employed to renew and restore
your physical body. If harmonies and
difficulties have made your body
seem a "base metal" that is a prob-
lem rather than an asset, try using
loveto change your physical mecha-
nism into an asset of rich "gold."
First, love God, and then love
yourself as the expression of God.
Love your body as His idea. Love
other persons in their divine poten-
tial. Love good. Love beauty. Love
harmony. Love health. Let love flow
through every thought and every act
as a healing balm, restoring and
renewing.
It isn't magic, but it works like
magic. The only true philosopher's
stone with built-in properties that can
change base metal into gold is the
love of God. And that love is God's gift
to you, to use in transforming the
experiences of your life into rich
adventures in loving.


Saint Valentine's Day never too late


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Yesterday was Saint Valentine's
Day or Valentine's Day. I hope you
didn't forget! Like many of our holi-
days, there is a religious connection.
Valentine was a v.
Christian priest -
who was impris-
oned during the a
persecutions of the -.-
Roman Emperor
Claudius II, being
put to death on the .-
14th of February in
the year 270.
Apparently, his SamuelS.
jailor's daughter Thomas
was kind to her
father's prisoners and before his
death Valentine wrote her a note of
kindness, signing it "from your Valen-
tine." From a long interweaving of
pagan traditions and Christian folk-
lore, we stand today with Valentine's
Day being among the most celebrat-
ed holidays in the world. I think what
stands but about the holiday with its
religious roots is that it speaks to
something very basic in human
beings and something very religious
at the same time. Now and again,
someone does something great; the
person is long since forgotten but
what was done lives on. Valentine's
Day is one of those times. In fact,
what Valentine did was to write a
note of kindness to someone who
was well integrated into the society of
those who would put him to death.


He was able to transcend the politics
of the time, overcome the normally-
understood feelings of hatred or at
least dislike of his persecutors, able to
stand above what was going on
around him and speak to the com-
mon human denominator love. This
is the key to the reason he is associat-
ed with the day we remember loved
ones and why he is remembered with
it. Unselfish love is what the world
still craves and what people have
sought, will seek and what finally
heals and restores. Our lord was put
to the test by His detractors; a scribe
asks Him: "Which commandment is
first of all? (Mark 12:28)." The answer
is "You shall love the Lord your
God...(vs. 30). But Jesus went on:
"The second, is this, 'You shall love
your neighbor as yourself' (vs. 31)"
and then added "there is no other
commandment greater than these."
Jesus used the plural, "these", mean-
ing both are the greatest. This was the
lesson and commandment that
Valentine took to heart even under
the worst of circumstances and even
when he knew death was before
him. What is worth noting about the
commandment and the actions of
Valentine is that there is a key of
unselfishness about it all. This is not
"getting the love you want" by
exploitation or manipulation, it is out-
pouring and self-sacrificing. Loving
ones' neighbor, and especially those
"neighbors" who have become spe-
cial in our lives and whom we take
into our lives as loved, means that
they are respected and treated for
what they are: God's creations and


those who bear His image to us. They
are not to be exploited, used, abused,
manipulated, demeaned. We love
our neighbors and those special ones
around us on whom we concentrate
our human love by respecting and
demanding respect in return. We see
others bearing the image of God; we
must also bear that image and we are
not to let others mistreat or abuse just
because they supposedly "love" us.
People have asked me about the ethi-
cal parts of loving relationships and I
ask in return, "Is the relationship one-
sided or do both share equally in the
work that makes the relationship
grow and live?" People need to ask
"Is there mutual satisfaction and joy,
or is only one partner growing and
the other is being stifled?" Martin
Buber wrote that we seem to love
things and use people when we
ought to use things and love people.
So many relationships come to an
end these days and no wonder! They
are built on. faulty values, misunder-
standings about what "love" really is
and trying to make someone over in a
human image and not the image of
God planted in them. The Lord who
said we are to love our neighbors as
ourselves spoke to the sacredness of
others and of our self-respect; our
God-given dignity too. When we
honor each other and ourselves by
really loving them, we celebrate what
makes us full and complete, what
really satisfies us at our deepest
being. That's love. Now, the day after
the holiday, we might honor God and
each other by looking at God's love
and our response to it.

Blasphemy challenge -



your soul for a free DVD


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Over the centuries, people
have surrendered their souls for
a variety of reasons, but what I
just heard in the news makes my
heart cry. In
his film "The
God Who
Wasn't
There," Brian
Flemming
questions the
existence of
Jesus Christ,
arguing that
the biblical John
Jesus is a Hicks
myth, a legend
based on allegorical stories that
were never supposed to be seen
as historical accounts. It's a
provocative claim but not with-
out precedent. We've experi-
ence and overcome the "God is
dead" movement, "The Last
Temptation of Christ", and "The
DaVinci Code." I don't believe
this movie, which came out in
DVD on January 31, poses a
major threat in itself. There is
some concern about those who
don't have a strong biblical faith
and understanding, but the real
danger as I see it lies in their
marketing ploy and their focus
on reaching a young people.
They advertised, "Blasphemy
Challenge! Your soul is needed.
Do you have the cajones to
show the world how sure you
are that the Christian God does-
n't exist?
The Rational Response
Squad is giving away 1001 DVDs
of The God Who Wasn't There.
There's only one catch: We want
your soul. It's simple. You record
a short message damning your-
self to Hell, you upload it to


YouTube, and then we will send
you a free "The God Who Was-
n't There" DVD. It's that easy.
You may damn yourself to
Hell however you would like,
but somewhere in your video
you must say this phrase: "I deny
the Holy Spirit." Why? Because,
according to Mark 3:29 in the
Holy Bible, "Whoever blas-
phemes against the Holy Spirit
will never be forgiven; he is
guilty of an eternal sin." Jesus
will forgive you for just about
anything, but He won't forgive
you for denying the existence of
the Holy Spirit. Ever. This is a
one-way road you're taking
here.
During December and Janu-
ary, nearly 1,000 youth and
young adults responded to chal-
lenge. By accepting the chal-
lenge, participants supposedly
are showing others that there is
nothing to fear from God,
because he doesn't exist.
Sounds similar to the line of the
"father of lies" in Genesis 4-5,
"You will not surely die," the ser-
pent said to the woman. "For
God knows that when you eat of
it your eyes will be opened, and
you will be like God..."
If they are wrong, they have
supposedly consigned them-
selves to an eternity in hell
because they have committed
the unpardonable sin. That's a
high price to pay for a $25 video
and a few moments of fame on
YouTube.
Actually, the term "unpardon-
able sin" does not appear in the
Bible. The biblical lines that
have given rise to the notion of
an unpardonable sin actually
appear in three of the gospels:
Mark 3:28-29, Matthew 12:31-32
and Luke 12:10. In context,


Jesus is saying that His oppo-
nents were attributing the heal-
ing work of God to Satan. If they
will not acknowledge God, there
is no way they can avail them-
selves of God's forgiveness.
The work of the Holy Spirit is
to reveal God's truth to us and to
convict us of our sins. Thus, the
only way to blaspheme against
the Holy Spirit is to reject what
the Spirit reveals to us, to refuse
the conviction and deny God's
truth. Thus we do not repent, for
we think we have nothing to
repent of. And if we will not
repent, we cannot be forgiven.
And if we persist in that way
long enough, we eventually lose
the ability to hear the Spirit or
perceive the need to seek for-
giveness.
In other words, it is our
unwillingness to repent that
makes a sin unpardonable, not
God's unwillingness to forgive
us.
In John 6:37, Jesus states,
"anyone who comes to me I will
never drive away." (For context,
read 6:35-40.)
With those words, Jesus said
that He would welcome anyone
who came to Him. Anyone. No
exceptions, if only they will
come.
The irony is that all those
who have gone online to "deny
the Holy Spirit" through the Blas-
phemy Challenge have only to
listen to the prompting of that
Spirit within, turn to Christ and
be forgiven. If they do that, even
their denial of the Spirit will be
forgiven. That's what I'm pray-
ing for. The salvation God offers
through Jesus is complete.
Nothing is left unpardoned.

Doc Savvy's Pet Corner


QUESTION: Hello, my name is
Belinda. I have a 15-year-old
female poodle named Jsa Jsa. I try
to do every-
thing I can to
help her main-
tain her health.
Recently, I have
noticed she is
having a little
trouble with
incontinence. "
She sometimes
dribbles urine Doc
without realiz- Sa
ing what she is
doing. Is there a medication for
dogs with urinary incontinence?
Thanks for any help you may have.
ANSWER: Hello Belinda. Yes
there are a few choices to help
with urinary incontinence, but first


a few things must be ruled out. It is
important to have a recent work
up done for Jza Jza to make sure
there are no underlying reasons for
this new problem.
As a dog gets older sometimes
the kidneys can have problems
which may cause symptoms such
as drinking a lot and urinating a lot.
Also, kidneys may have trouble fil-
tering well and their efficiency may
be compromised. Sometimes
these problems will show up as
incontinence. Having routine
blood chemistries run can deter-
mine how the organs are function-
ing. A urinalysis would be helpful
too. This can determine if there is a
urinary tract infection or a kidney
filtering problem. Many times if the
kidney problem is addressed, then
the incontinence can be mini-


mized. Changing Jza Jza's food to
a higher quality lower quantity
protein diet may be helpful as well.
If in fact it is determined that the
incontinence is true, then there are
several choices for therapy. Some
of the incontinence medications
have other side effects, so it is ben-
eficial to determine which is the
lesser of two evils.
Belinda, start off by making an
appointment with your veterinari-
an to ,discuss these options. The
sooner the better, so you can
address any potential serious
problems ASAP.
Keep me posted. Take care,
Doc Savvy.
