of operation. There will be over
150 organizations on site
throughout the day, supporting
this Glades area event.
"The future of the community
is its health," said Ms. Leeds.


"What I feel about the REACH
fair is that all community mem-
bers have an opportunity to
receive medical care from pedi-
atrics, geriatrics and everything in
between."
Ms. Warshaw said that the
Glades REACH fair was devel-
oped in 2001 in an effort to
address the need for better
access to healthcare services in

of child abuse


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE A 47-year old
man was arrested Friday
evening, for reportedly spank-
ing one of his grandchildren
with a board so hard the boy
was scarred from the "disci-
pline."
Sonny Johnson was
charged with one felony count
of cruelty toward a child-aggra-
vated abuse.
According to a probable
cause affidavit provided by the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office, a lady at the residence of
the incident, located on West
Fifth Terrace in Pahokee, told
investigtoil that the. suspect
disciplines his grandchildren.
When approached by inves-
tigators, the suspect said that
he had nothing to hide, telling
them that he spanked his


grandchildren with a board.
The affidavit said that the
suspect indicated he had left
"red marks" on the buttocks of
one of his grandchildren.
The suspect said that if a
spanking is needed, he gives it
to his grandchildren.
Investigators then spoke to
the child, confirming that the
suspect had spanked the boy
with a board, leaving bruises
and cuts on his buttocks.
The report said that the
spanking, at times, brought
blood to the surface of the
board.
Investigators observed the
bruises were put on the boy's
buttocks about three weeks
ago when the suspect "disci-
plined" him.
The affidavit said the scars
on the boy's buttocks matched

dentistry, physical and occupation-
al therapy, audiology, and nursing.
Community physicians have volun-
teered their time to see patients and
supervise the students. Nova
Southeastern faculty will also be on
hand to provide services. Screen-

generous support from Hendry
Regional Medical Center, Riverside

have seen hundreds of people from
infant to geriatrics. This is a great
opportunity for residents of this area
to get quality health care at no

access they need. For more infor-

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these doa', act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our watchdogo" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

kee Elementary School spon-
sored a Black History Program.
The program took place in the
cafeteria immediately following
the SAC Meeting. The theme of
the program was "From the Moth-
erland to America". The program
began with a welcome from the
Assistant Principal Mrs. Gaugler
followed by the singing of the
Negro National Anthem, led by
Marquevis Webb. Mrs. Samuels'
1st Grade Class performed The
Creation by James Weldon John-
son. Student performers included
students from 2nd through 6th
grade..They shared biographies of
historical figures in African Ameri-
can history from Shaka Zulu,
Queen Nefertiti, Sojourner Truth
and Frederick Douglas, to more
recent prominent figures Muham-
mad Ali, Rosa Parks, Oprah Win-
frey, Maya Angeldu and Barack
Obama. We also had special per-
formances by our PES Praise
Dance Team and PYEA Step
Group. The program was con-


cluded with remarks from our
Principal Mrs. Green.
FCAT Pep Rally
Our FCAT Pep Rally on Friday,
Feb. 23 was a blast enjoyed by the
entire school. Our school-wide
theme for this year is "Operation
High Score". Mrs. Green and Mrs.
Gaugler challenged all of our
teachers and students to aim for
the highest score on FCAT. Each
class received a survival kit to take
with them as they prepared for
the upcoming FCAT. We had spe-
cial guests from Pahokee Mid-
dle/Senior High School who
entertained the students. We'd
like to thank the Dr. Reed Bain,
Mr. Ollice Davis and percussion
players from the OD Express for
their performance at our FCAT
Pep Rally. During the pep rally, we
crowned Mrs. FCAT Queen, Ms.
Barbara Jones. We also had per-
formances from our FCAT Cheer-
leaders and PYEA Step Team. Mrs.
Green and Mrs. Gaugler present-
ed all of the staff members with a
token of appreciation for all their
hard work in preparing students
for the test. At the conclusion of
the program, the drummers
marched all of our FCAT troops
back to their classes.

Leadership program continues success


By Janice Groves
HENDRY/GLADES COUNTY
- Another successful session
has been put to rest as the Lead-
ership Hendy and Glades Coun-
ties' "Pioneer" Class' inaugural
season met its halfway mark
Wednesday, Feb. 21.
The twenty participants
began their Health and Educa-
tion Day at the Port LaBelle Inn
for breakfast, sponsored by Sea-
coast National Bank and Lang-
ford Ford. The class members
then were introduced to a panel
of educators in both Hendry and
Glades counties. Barbara Saun-


ders, Executive Director of South-
west Florida, Early Learning
Coalition; Lucinda Kelley, Dean
of Education at the LaBelle Cam-
pus of Edison College; Tom Con-
nor, Superintendent of Hendry
County Schools,; Scott Bass,
Glades County Schools; and Nor-
man "Sonny" Hughes, Executive
Director of the Education Center
of Southwest Florida provided an
informative and in-depth picture
of opportunities and challenges
facing the Hendry and Glades
counties education systems.
A tour of the Edison campus
in LaBelle, hosted by Lucinda
Kelley and the LaBelle High
School campus, hosted by Jen-


nifer Milligan and Aaron Dyes,
both students at LaBelle High
School, and Daniel Gilbertson,
LaBelle High School Principal
filled the rest of the morning. A
cafeteria lunch at the high school
was enjoyed by the class before
they headed to Moore Haven to
visit the Glades County School
Board. Mr. Scott Bass gave a tour
of the executive offices and
School Board Member, Janet
Story, provided the joys, rewards
and challenges of being a school
board member.
Being Health and Education
Day, the group switched to the
health portion of the day for the
afternoon. A short tour and infor-


mation presentation of the
Glades County Health Depart-
ment preceded a trip to the
Hendry County Regional Medical
Center where a tour of the 56
year old facility was hosted by
Sue Sealey.
The group wrapped up the
day by listening to a panel of rep-
resentatives from the Hendry
County Health Department
including: Pat Dobbins Executive
Nursing Director; Lynn Thomas,
Business Manager; Judy
Paskvan, Program Director for
Healthy Families; and Keith Legg,
Environmental Health. Joe
Hosick, Executive Director
Hendry Glades Mental Health;


GLADES COUNTY On Tues-
day, Feb. 20, a Glades County
Sheriff's Deputy was conducting
routine security checks within the
Port LaBelle area. During the
security checks, the deputy
noticed a strong odor of marijua-
na from within a specific resi-
dence.
The deputy contacted the
Criminal Investigation Division,
and relayed his findings. The
Criminal Investigations Division
began their investigation which
led to obtaining a search warrant
for the residence located on
Warm Court. The search warrant
led investigators to find 9 grown
marijuana plants and approxi-
mately 50 pounds of processed
marijuana.
Also inside the residence,
investigators arrested two sus-


pects, Mercedes Alpiza Cabrera,
38 and Gilberto Hernandez
Lopez, 36. Both were taken into
custody and charged with cultiva-
tion of marijuana and trafficking

While detectives were at work
on the first suspected "grow
house," they located a second
possible suspect residence.
With a search warrant, detec-
tives searched the second home
in the same area on Saturn Circle
and found 65 marijuana plants
growing inside the home. Detec-
tives arrested Osualdo Jorge, 45
and he also was taken into cus-
tody and charged with cultivation
of marijuana and possession of
marijuana.
All three suspects were trans-
ported to the Glades County Jail.

Revisions in federal


radio regulations


affect amateurs


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
W3ALE, PIO-BLARC
CLEWISTON Effective Feb.
23, changes were made in the
Federal Communications Com-
mission regulations that affected
radio amateurs. For the first time
since the inception of radio licens-
ing, Morse code requirements
have been dropped. This means
that persons seeking to be
licensed as radio amateurs will no
longer have to take tests to
demonstrate their ability to oper-
ate in code. For some years now,
there has been a discontinuation
of code use by the military and
the commercial radio communi-
ty. Today, a more innovative
means of using "code" has come
into place by the coupling of digi-
tal technology and radio broad-
casting and the former means of
communication by Morse code is
not as nearly widespread as it
once was.
The Federal radio spectrum
still maintains frequencies
restricted for the use of code
transmissions, although a second
change also was instituted on the
23rd of February, expanding the
portions of the amateur radio
spectrum that permits use of
voice transmissions.
In the past, some persons


interested in amateur radio as a
hobby and as a means of serving
their communities in times of dis-
asters felt restricted by code
requirements; feeling that they
could not sufficiently master this
language to pass the required
tests. With the elimination of the
code requirement, it is now possi-
ble to obtain any of the various
classes of amateur licenses by
passing the written question-and-
answer tests that are provided.
The Clewiston area, as well as the
other areas around Lake Okee-
chobee, has sufficient numbers of
volunteer examiners to provide
for licensure tests to those who
are interested in becoming radio
amateurs, as well as providing
resources or referrals to classes,
materials and means of self-study
to prepare for the exams.
Interested persons can contact
the Big Lake Amateur Radio Club
for more information, assistance
or referral to sources to help get
underway in a rewarding and
useful pastime.
For more information, contact
the club, which meets the last
Monday of each month at Saint
Martin's Church, Clewiston, at
7:30 p.m. More information can
be obtained by calling (863) 983-
7960 in Clewiston.

To meet a growing demand for electricity and provide a diverse fuel mix
ensuring a reliable supply of electricity, Florida Power & Light is proposing
to build an advanced technology coal plant. The proposed plant will also
meet a demand for strict environmental and public health protection.

Florida Power & Light studied coal-fired power plants around the world
and selected the best-proven technology for the proposed FPL Glades Power
Park. This plant design will be the
most advanced coal generation tech-
S'nology ever developed in the United
-. States and is raising the bar for the
Si i industry. This new generation of coal-
Sfired power plants offers a modern,
Environmentally safe and efficient
S approach to producing electricity.

The extraordinary controls on mercury
emissions planned for the FPL Glades
SPower Park are an example of the care
and commitment to protecting public
health and the environment.

Strict mercury emission limits for power plants were adopted in the
Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Air Mercury Rule of 2005.
The FPL Glades Power Park will not only meet the EPA's new, strict limit
but will be 50 percent below that limit for mercury emissions.

Mercury does not pose a health risk in the air we breathe; rather, it becomes
a concern when it builds up in the food chain. When mercury from the air
gets into water bodies, it can be converted to a form called methylmercury
and accumulate in fish. Because of its very low emissions, the FPL Glades
Power Park will not contribute to health concerns from
methylmercury in the region. Area residents can continue to
enjoy fish caught locally in the same quantities they do now.


Advanced Mercury Controls Planned for the

FPL Glades Power Park

To achieve this level of protection, the most modern, proven pollution
control technologies will be brought to Glades County with the construc-
tion of the FPL Glades Power Park.

Overall, emissions of mercury in the United States from man-made sources
already have fallen by more than 45 percent since passage of the earlier
Clean Air Act amendments in 1990. With the stricter Mercury Rule of
2005, this trend of Mercury reductions is expected to continue. FPL Glades
Power Park's modern technology helps to continue that trend.

Mercury is a naturally occurring element in rocks and soil and also can
be found in fuels such as coal and oil. The amount of mercury in coal is
typically similar to the amount that is already found in Florida soils. FPL
will use an extensive array of proven emissions-control equipment that
enhances the removal of mercury at each step of the process so the amount
of mercury in the local environment from the power plant will be indistin-
guishable from what already exists naturally and from other sources.

As part of FPLs continuing focus on public health and environmental
protection, we will monitor air emissions from the FPL Glades Power Park
24 hours a day to ensure the protection of both the environment and the
health of people and wildlife in the region.

FPL is committed to a long-term partnership with the communities where
our facilities are located. The Glades region will be no exception. We want
community involvement throughout the planning stages of this project. If
you have additional questions about the pollution-control technologies,
please call us at (888) 256-2206.

Renewable Energy Technologies get state money


TALLAHASSEE Lt. Governor
Jeff Kottkamp has joined Florida
Commissioner of Agriculture
Chares H. Bronson and the Flori-
da Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) Secretary
Michael W. Sole to announce the
recipients of Florida's renewable
energy technologies grants.
"The grant program creates a
receptive, inspiring environment
for research," said Lt. Governor
Jeff Kottkamp. "Investments in
cutting-edge ventures ensure a
stronger economy and a cleaner
environment for the next genera-
tion of Floridians."
Through the 2006 Florida
Energy Act, the Florida Legisla-
ture appropriated $15 million for
renewable energy technologies
grants to stimulate capital invest-
ment in the state and promote
and enhance the statewide uti-
lization of renewable energy
technologies, including ethanol
and bioenergy.
The funding was awarded to
eight organizations with at least
$5 million to support bioenergy
projects and $10 million for proj-
ects that generate or utilize other
renewable energy resources,
including hydrogen, biomass
and solar energy.
"This is a major step forward
in Florida's effort to establish a
meaningful renewable energy
industry," Commissioner Bron-
son said. "We hope to build on
this first step with the help and
support of our industry, our col-
leagues at DEP, the legislature
and Governor Crist."
The Repewable Energy Tech-
nologies Grant Program recipi-
ents for 2007 are as follows:
Citrus Energy LLC, "Fuel
Ethanol Production from Citrus
Waste Biomass" ($2.5 million):
Based in Clewiston, the compa-
ny will construct a four-million-
gallon-per-year ethanol bio-refin-
ery to use citrus waste to
produce ethanol. This project
will transform citrus waste, an
abundant agricultural residual,
into a clean, affordable and local-
ly-produced biofuel.
Alico Inc., "Commercial
Ethanol Production from Bio-
mass" ($2.5 million): The project
will use biomass products to co-
produce ethanol and electricity
at a savings for consumers. The
facility will produce ethanol for
blending with gasoline at less
than one-third of the current
national average retail cost of
gasoline, and can deliver "green"
electricity at a cost of five to eight
cents per kilowatt hour.
Losonoco Inc., "Losonoco
Mulberry Ethanol" ($2.5 million):
Losonoco Inc. will purchase,


refurbish, and operate a shut-
tered fuel ethanol production
facility in the City of Mulberry in
Polk County. Through the incor-
poration of technology improve-
ments and best operating prac-
tices developed over the past
decade, Losonoco intends to
refurbish and reopen the facility
as a 12-million-gallon-per-year
plant, virtually doubling its origi-
nal capacity.
University of Florida, "Renew-
able Energy Fuels in a Micro-Grid
Power Module" ($2,464,703):
The grant will be used to con-
struct a small-scale demonstra-
tion plant using the University's
patented PoWER technology,
including operation on a variety
of liquid and gaseous biofuels.
The system allows ultra-clean,
efficient operation on a wide vari-
ety of biomass fuels, hydrogen or
conventional fuels, and this proj-
ect will be installed at the Univer-
sity of Florida Energy Research
Park, connected to the grid by
Progress Energy, and operated to
determine its performance using
biofuels.
Florida Solar Energy
Research and Education Founda-
tion, "Getting Down to Business:


Transforming Florida's Solar Mar-
ketplace" ($1,921,575): The
statewide initiative is designed to
increase the use of solar technolo-
gies as well as strengthen and sta-
bilize the solar-energy industry in
Florida. By demonstrating the use
of appropriate solar technologies
in the commercial sector, this
project will increase awareness
and participation for Florida's
solar rebate program.
Kore Consulting Group, "Sky
Renewable Energy with Optimal
Supply-and-Demand-Side Integra-
tion Demonstration"
($1,802,567): The project will
study and develop strategies to
successfully integrate renewable
and sustainable energy technolo-
gies with the quality-of-life and
environmental goals of the com-
munity. Located in Calhoun Coun-
ty, the project will minimize ener-
gy requirements and maximize
renewable energy use to support
the community while maintaining
the comforts and quality of life
expected by its residents.
Florida International Univer-
sity, "Assessment and Develop-
ment of Pretreatment for Sugar-
cane Bagasse to Commercialize
Cellulosic Ethanol Technology"


($990,532): The university project
will determine the technical feasi-
bility of using Florida sugarcane
waste as a feedstock for a large-
scale ethanol industry in the
state. The university will try to
identify a cost-effective pretreat-
ment process to make sugarcane
waste a viable feedstock for
ethanol production.
Florida Biomass Energy Con-
sortium, "Using High Efficiency
Biomass Gasification for Industrial
Drying" ($320,623): The proposal
is to build and operate an integrat-
ed biomass gasification system to
replace natural-gas use with bio-
gas for an industrial user. This
project will define and establish
both the technical and economic
viability of using Florida's biomass
resources for industrial drying
processes that currently use natu-
ral gas as the energy source.
"The Renewable Energy Tech-
nologies Grant Program encour-
ages organizations and compa-
nies to invest in alternative energy
technologies that can promote
energy diversity, reduce pollution
and promote economic growth,"
said DEP Secretary Michael W.
Sole. "We are excited to award
these grants to eight projects that

are exploring new possibilities in
renewable energy technologies
throughout the Florida."
The targeted grant program is
designed to advance the already
growing establishment of renew-
able energy technologies in the
state, including hydrogen, bio-
mass, solar energy, geothermal
energy, wind energy, ocean ener-
gy, waste heat and hydroelectric
power. The eight grant recipients
were selected from among 183
grant proposals seeking nearly
$215 million in grant funding and
providing more than $505 million
in cost share for renewable ener-
gy projects.
Grant proposals were evaluat-
ed by the state based on a num-
ber of different criteria, including
cost share percentage, economic
development potential, energy
efficiency and how the project
fosters public awareness of
renewable energy technologies.
Grants were awarded at a maxi-
mum of $2.5 million per project,
and eligible applicants included
Florida municipalities and county
governments, established for-
profit companies licensed to do
business in Florida, universities
and colleges in the state, utilities


located and operating within
Florida, not-for-profit organiza-
tions and state agencies.
The 2006 Florida Energy Act
takes the first comprehensive step
toward a diverse, reliable and
secure energy future by reducing
regulatory barriers to expedite
electric generation capacity and
providing rebates, grants and tax
incentives to drive the develop-
ment of alternative fuel technolo-
gies. The four-year, $100 million
plan will diversify the state's fuel
supply, reduce Florida's depend-
ence on imported oil, spur eco-
nomic growth and promote ener-
gy conservation and efficiency.
Earlier this month, Governor
Crist recommended a record
$68.25 million to encourage
investment in alternative energy
technologies, including $40 mil-
lion in alternative energy incentive
funding, $15 million to continue
the Renewable Energy Technolo-
gies Grant Program, $2.5. million
for the Solar Energy Rebate Pro-
gram and almost $1 million to
promote energy efficiency.

scholarship through track and
academics.
Mr. Calnek said that in order
to be successful in track, the
girls must have the combination
of athletic talent, discipline and a
passion for the sport. He said
that the sport is 90 percent men-
tal and 10 percent physical.
"If you don't have the mental
toughness to withstand your
opponents, you won't succeed,"
said Mr. Calnek.
Mr. Calnek said he looks for-
ward to putting out a competi-
tive team this season.
"Overall, we're looking for
the girls to have a stronger pas-
sion about track and field and
realize the different opportuni-
ties it could elevate them to,"
said Mr. Calnek.
Here are six athletes on the
girls' side to look forward to this
upcoming season:
Vionni Brown, a junior, was
a state finalist last season in the
100 and 200 meter races, as well
as the 4x100 relay. She was a
state semifinalist in the long
jump last year. Ms. Brown looks
to be a state championship in all
four of her events.
Tarama Jones, a senior, will
be participating in the same
events that Ms. Brown is in. Ms.
Jones is eyeing the state champi-
onships as well.
Niyoka Sime, a sophomore,
was a state finalist on the 4x100
relay team last year. She also ran
in the 4x400 races. Ms. Sime is
reaching for greatness in these
events this season.

Preparation and prevention; two parts of getting ready


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We are into the season of Lent
in the calendars used by many
churches.
This is a time of getting ready for
Easter, really and it has a long and
traditional history. When we
expect to have special visitors, we
clean house, buy special things to
eat, tell friends about who is com-
ing over and make a hospitable
place for our planned guests.
That's what Lent is about too; get-
ting ready for a renewed visit by a
Resurrected Lord at Easter.
Zechariah speaks of his son John,
whose ministry was to "go on
before the Lord to prepare the way
for Him (Luke 1:76)." The Old Tes-
tament tells us about preparing for
the coming of the Lord and the
New Testament tells us to prepare
for His coming again. I reflected on
times I have gotten ready for some-


thing; about ministries and how
my past experiences helped me
with them, about friendships I
share and looking forward to time I
spend with people who are special


to me, about
looking ahead
at the changes
that I can fore-
see and at what
I am doing to
make transi-
tions to a new
direction in my
life. There is
also another
part of pre-
paredness that I


Samuel S.

consider: prevention. Sometime
ago, when I toured the Mercedes-
Benz plant and museum in
Stuttgart, Germany, we were intro-
duced to all of the engineering and
technological advances that were
made. Then the engineers said that
they were not satisfied with build-
ing what they thought was the


best; they wanted to do something
more and devoted their research to
safety. They moved from designing
cars only to transport, to designing
cars that would prevent injury or
death in case of an accident. The
cars were designed to prepare for
something that might never come,
but would prevent bad things from
happening if it did. Today, our cars
are "prepared" for the future with
air bags and restraints; to "prevent"
what: might happen even if we
don't think much about them each
time we get in. Accident prevention
is also preparation.
We are likewise encouraged to
do "preventive maintenance;"
service today to keep things going
in the future. Likewise, medicine
works to heal people and discover
cures for what ails us; but there is
also that growing concern for pre-
ventive medicine. That's equally
important; the other side of the
coin in keeping us from needing
healing in the first place. We pre-


pare for the future by preventing
global warming today with all of its
consequences. Spiritually, our
habits of worship, our moments of
devotion, or prayers that we say
regularly, our doing good- are pre-
ventive too. They give us the
inward direction that carries us
when crises occur or when tragedy
strikes. My habits of prayer go
before me when I am called upon,
sometimes very suddenly, to offer a
blessing or to pray with someone
who is suffering or has had a seri-
ous setback. I was reading an old
English prayer the other day and
the word "prevent" was used. In
the older version, it made more
sense if it was translated as "going
before." In fact, "prevent" is related
to the root meanings of "pre"
meaning something before, and
"venir" in Latin, French or Spanish
which means "to come." "Pre-
vent" literally meant what to do
before coming into something.
Today, prevention is what we do


before we get into a predicament
or situation. Spiritually, it is getting
ready for what is to come. In this
time of getting ready for Easter,
April 8th-a little more than a month
away, it would be a good time to
think about the spiritual "preven-
tive maintenance" we could do in
the old sense of the word. What we


do today matters tomorrow, and
what foundations we have laid
now will support our life to come.
Lent is one of those times tradition-
ally set aside by many faithful to
remind us of or spiritual "preven-
tive maintenance" and to get ready
for the life to come at Easter and
finally at the close of this age.


Tubas on picnic tables and other learned truths


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
There are certain truths that
we can relate to. A friend shared
with me that when using a public
campground, a tuba placed on
your picnic table will keep the
campsites on either side vacant,
and that the guitar of the noisy
teenager at the next campsite
makes excellent kindling. I can
only imagine how he ascertained
that knowledge!
We find spoken and written
truths and messages all around
us. Sometimes they make us
smile; sometimes they inspire us.
Sometimes they just invite us to
pause and think.
Take some of the messages we


find on church signs for instance.
Here are some favorites that I dug
up from my files.
(1) "Those who throw dirt lose
ground." (2) "It wasn't the apple
on the tree, it
was the pair
beneath." (3)
"Satan sub-
tracts and
divides. God
adds and mul-
tiplies." (4)
"Easter More
than some-
thing to dye John
for." (5) Hicks
"When down
in the mouth, remember Jonah.
He came out all right." (6) "Don't
let your worries get the best of
you; remember, Moses started


out as a basket case." (7) "Some
minds are like concrete thorough-
ly mixed up and permanently
set." (8) "We were called to be
witnesses, not lawyers or judges."
(9) "God doesn't call the quali-
fied, He qualifies the called." (10)
"The Will of God never takes you
to where the Grace of God will
not protect you." (11) "We don't
change the message, the message
changes us."
These messages touch our
hearts with a smile and elements
of great truths that we can relate
to and share. Recently, I ran
across another fascinating list that
was titled: "Great Truths About
Life That Little Children Have
Learned." Let me share a few of
these "great truths" with you.
(1) "No matter how hard you


try you cannot baptize a cat." (2)
"When your mom is mad at your
dad, don't let her brush your
hair." (3) "Never ask your three-
year-old brother to hold a toma-
to or an egg." (4) "You can't
trust dogs to watch your food for
you." (5) "Don't sneeze when
somebody is cutting your hair."
(6) "School lunches stick to the
wall." (7) "You can't hide a piece
of broccoli in a glass of milk."
(8) "Never wear polka-dot
underwear under white shorts...
no matter how cute the under-
wear is."
Now, it is most likely that the
children learned these "great
truths" and came to these bold
new insights after some dramat-

still possible (with God's help)

In a world that is full of drugs,

In a world full of excitement

possible to work with people and
lead some to Christ.
In a situation where some
people backslide and others are
inconsistent in their Christian
profession, it is still possible to be


in the Scriptures. From Genesis
to Revelation, the Bible is full of
mighty miracles, amazing signs,
and supernatural wonders
which God performed through
His people. These are eye-open-

BELLE GLADE The Glady L.
Tucker Women's Missionary Soci-
ety along with the Eleventh Episco-
pal Missionary Society, reached out
to children whose fathers are incar-
cerated. The Mt. Zion WMS, under
the leadership of Pastor Hymes and
local president Maude L. Vereen,
accepted the challenge.
The group was initially sent
information on five families with 11
children, however, President
Vereen was contacted by four other
families with 18 more children.
President Vereen contacted
each caretaker and explained the
purpose for the call, to find out
each child's needs. Each one was
invited to share worship service

In a world full of religious divi-

This is a great truth that Jesus

Here's a good project for do-it-yourselfers looking to
build a handsome coffee table as well as a safe place
to store and display prized collectibles.
Built primarily from oak and oak plywood (other
woods can be substituted), this curio coffee table is
topped with a piece of heavy glass. The table's top
drawer provides almost four square feet of display
space and can be lined with felt to protect its contents
from scratches.
The curio table measures 38 inches long by 24
inches deep by 17 inches tall. The plan includes
step-by-step directions with 12 photos, isometric
drawings, a shopping list and a cutting schedule.

Curio Coffee Table plan (No. 854)... $9.95
Curio Furniture Package (No. C116)
Three projects incl. 854.. .$22.95
Catalog (pictures hundreds of projects)... $2.00
