BELLE GLADE Eleven peo-
ple were arrested in a brawl at

The Palm Beach County Sher-

school to quell the fighting.
At press time, it isn't certain
whether the fighting at the
school was gang related or sim'
ply a fight that quickly grew out

BELLE GLADE A 36-year
old man was shot last Wednes-

ience store in Belle Glade.
The incident occurred at a
convenience store on S.W 16th

Rosenwald honors


its grandparents


Johnson: 'They
are a great part
of our school'

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY Rosenwald
Elementary School (RES) and
the city of South Bay honored
grandparents with a special pres-
entation on Feb 24.
The grandparents of the ele-
mentary school were awarded
certificates of appreciation dur-
ing an event entitled "The Histor-
ical Exhibit of Blacks in Palm
Beach County."
They were honored for their
hard work at the school and their
dedication to helping the students
in their development.
Rosenwald Elementary School
Principal Deborah L. Johnson said
the grandparents program has
been in effect for about five years.
Annette Allen, a first grade


teacher and parent liaison who
works closely with the grandpar-
ents, created the program.
Currently there are seven grand-
parents at the school, since para-
professionals have been generally
cut out of the Palm Beach County
school budget for the past two
years, according to the principal.
"They are a great part of our
school," said Ms. Johnson.
Ms. Johnson said that the pur-
pose of the program is to allow
grandparents to assist the chil-
dren with their academics during
school hours. They are placed
with students from Kindergarten
to second grade.
According to the principal, Ms.
Allen helps the grandparents sched-
ule volui teer hours, which come to
about thirty hours a week some-
thing that often leads to a few of the
grandparents being formally recog-
nized for their volunteer work.

Dorothy Brown, one of the seven grandparents from the Rosenwald Elementary School
grandparents program, was honored by the school and the City of South Bay for volun-
teering her time there every day.

Local athlete excited about future


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Glades Cen-
tral student athlete Deonte
Thompson is looking forward to
his college venture, slated to
begin this fall.
For Mr. Thompson, 18, his
high school career will be one
that he will always cherish and
remember. However, Mr.
Thompson said that he knows
life must go on.
Mr. Thompson will be attend-
ing the University of Florida, the
school that he picked over other
football schools such as USC,
LSU, Florida State, Ohio State
and the University of Miami.
Mr. Thompson's mother, Ver-


lene Roberts, said that her son is
the first person in their family to
go to college on a scholarship.
"I am very happy for Deonte,"
said Ms. Roberts. "It will give his
little cousins, nieces and
nephews hope to succeed in
school."
Mr. Thompson said his suc-
cess has been possible in part
because of his mother instilling
in him the importance of obey-
ing authority and iumnility, two
traits that have contributed to his
strong bond with Ms. Roberts.
"Obedience will make me
live longer," said Mr. Thompson.
"I will do everything in my
power to make her proud."
Mr. Thompson also said that
his mother taught him how to be


independent during his child-
hood. He said that it had much
to do with his father not being
around much of the time and his
mother raising him on her own.
Mr. Thompson said he does-
n't want his five-month-old
daughter, Deaja, to have that
same experience he had.
"My daughter is.everything to
me and I want the best for her,"
said Mr. Thompson.
Mr. Thompson said that being
close to his daughter is a key
component to him staying in
Florida for college.
Mr. Thompson said that he
expects to get a great education
at the University of Florida,
where he will major in business.
He also said that he expects to


meet new people, be a great
football player there, and have a
great experience.
Mr. Thompson said that he
doesn't take this experience for
granted in a football sense.
"It's a blessing to be able to
still play football," said Mr.
Thompson. "Some of my former
teammates have played their last
football game at the state cham-
pionships."
Mr. Thompson said that giv-
ing his life over to a higher
authority about a year ago paved
the way for his future.
"Without Christ, my success
wouldn't be possible," said Mr.
Thompson.

Hendry, Glades to



hold a job fair


GLADES COUNTY Glades
and Hendry EDCs team up to assist
businesses with recruitment
With the construction of a new
FPL West County Energy slated to
begin this spring, plans to construct
a new emergency room and surgi-
cal suite at Hendry Regional Med-
ical Center in Clewiston, as well as
an urgent care center in LaBelle,
the opening of the new Glades
County Detention Center in July,
and the anticipated siting of new
manufacturing and commercial
businesses elsewhere in Glades
and Hendry Counties in coming
months, finding employees for
new businesses and assisting exist-
ing businesses with staff develop-
ment has become more crucial
than ever.
"Glades and Hendry County are
on track to become the land for
opportunity for students who want
to pursue a career cose to home,"
Ms. Whirls said, noting that past
economic development marketing
studies have shown that employees
will travel up to 75 miles to work in
high wage/high skilled jobs.
For that reason, the Glades
County Economic Development
Council Inc,, and Hendry County
Economic Development Council
have teamed up with Florida Power
and Light, Hendry Regional Medical
Center and the Career and Services
Center of Southwest Florida to
organize the 2007 Glades-Hendry
County Job Fair and Career Expo
Thursday, March 15, from 9 am. to
3 p.m. at the Doyle Conner Bldg.,
900 US 27S.W, Moore Haven.
According to Glades EDC execu-
tive director Tracy Whirls, the joint
Job Fair and Career Expo will not
only be the first step in matching
qualified candidates with area busi-
nesses' staff development needs,
but will mark the launch of an effort
to identify and track candidates
seeking training and education in
their particular field of interest.
Area residents can sign up now
for positions with FPLs contractors,
West County Power Partners, LLC
for positions which could keep
them gainfully employed through
2013 and beyond, Ms. Whirls said.
West County Power Partners,
LLC will begin hiring by the end of
May to fill 900 construction jobs,
related to the construction of FPL's
West County Energy Center, a natu-
ral-gas electricity plant at 20-mile
bend in Loxahatchee.
According to Sherry Thomas,
with West County Power Partners,
LLC, the company will be hiring
pipefitters, welders, laborers, car-
penters, cement finishers, mill-
wrights, ironworkers, electricians
and even some clerical staff.
While some skilled positions
will be needed, opportunities will
be available for laborers and "green
helpers," with salaries expected to
range from $10-$11.25 an hour to
start. Applicants must be 18, but no
high school diploma is required.
"Once we get people hired,
we'll start having classes," Ms.
Thomas said, noting that with an
expected 50 hour per week work
week, with jobs paying time and a
half over 40 hours, even the entry
level positions will be competitive.
Skilled tradesmen can expect to do


even better, with positions avail-
able for NCCR certified journey-
men starting out at $22 an hour.
With ground already broken
and construction on the West
County Energy Center slated to
begin within two months, the
expectation is that construction
crews will be able to work through
that project, the first phase of which
will be finished in 2009 and begin
work on construction of the FPL
Glades Power Park near'Moore
Haven in the summer of 2008.
As the first unit of the Glades
Power Park is not expected to
come on line before 2012, skilled
tradesmen from the entire area will
be gainfully employed for many
years.
"We're very excited about this
because once folks from our region
start getting jobs, everything we've
been talking about moves closer to
becoming a reality," Ms. Whirls
said.
Invitations have been sent to
high schools in Glades, Hendry,
Highlands, Palm Beach, Okee-
chobee, DeSoto, Hardee and Lee
Counties, urging them to bring
their upper classmen to the career
development event. Junior and
senior high school students will be
asked to register and identify their
career goals, to assist the EDCs and
the Career and Services Center in
helping them pursue training and
job opportunities in their fields of
interest.
"The 2007 Glades County Job
and Career Expo will be the first
step in helping to match students
and other job seekers with entry
level as well as upper level employ-
ment opportunities in their chosen
field, as well as education and train-
ing opportunities to help them find
the job of their dreams," Ms. Whirls
said, adding that in addition to
companies and agencies, such as
FPL, Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter, Hope Hospice and Community
Service, Pedro's Concrete Pump-
ing, the Glades County Sheriff's
Office, Amor Correctional Health
Services, Nisbet Enterprises, United
States Sugar Corporation, Moore
Haven Correctional Facility, South
Florida Water Management District,
Hendry County Board of County
Commissioners and others,
schools including the Education
Center of Southwest Florida, and
Edison College, are expected to be
on hand for the event.
"This expo will mark the launch
of an effort to identify and track
candidates interested in specific
career paths, for future follow up
and assistance in seeking advanced
training and higher education in
their chosen field," Ms. Whirls said.
While specifically targeting
young adults, the job fair is open to
anyone interested in seeking full
time employment or training.
Spanish language translators will
be on site, and Career and Service
Center staff will provide assistance
with resume preparation and other
work ready programs.
Refreshments will be provided
during the event, in cooperation
with Joey's Pizza of Moore Haven.

Disabled parking permit fee reduced


PALM BEACH COUNTY The
Third District Court of Appeals, on
Feb. 21, rendered a decision
regarding the $15 fee charged by
the Florida Department of High-
way Safety & Motor Vehicles for the
issuance of a Disabled Parking Per-
mit. Subsequent to the filing of the
lawsuit involving this decision, the


Florida legislature amended Flori-
da law and eliminated the $15 fee
and substituted an administrative
processing fee of $1.50 to cover the
cost of issuing the Disable Parking
Permit by Florida Tax Collectors.
The $1.50 administrative process-
ing fee statute is mandatory on
Florida Tax Collectors and must,


therefore, be collected.
The Court of Appeals in its
decision on Feb. 21, affirmatively
stated that it expressed "no opin-
ion" relative to the amendment in
the law eliminating the $15 fee
and substituting the $1.50 admin-
istrative processing fee.
"Therefore, until such time as


the Florida legislature and the
Florida Department of Revenue
elect to eliminate the $1.50
administrative processing fee, my
office has no alternative other
than to collect the nominal
charge in accordance with Florida
law," said Anne Cannon, Palm
Beach County Tax Collector.


Pet Corner


Dear Doc Savvy;
Question: Hello, my name is
Belinda. I have a 15 year old
female poodle named Jsa Jsa. I
try to do everything I can to help
her maintain her health. Recently,
I have noticed she is having a little
trouble with incontinence. She
sometimes dribbles urine without
realizing 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 underly-
ing 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. Some-
times these problems will show
up as incontinence. Having rou-

unteers across the country are ral-
lying to improve their local parks;
public spaces, waterways, streets,
and neighborhoods by participat-
ing in Keep America Beautiful -
Great American Cleanup, the
nation's largest annual communi-
ty improvement program. In Palm
Beach County, Great American
Cleanup activities take place in
April and May with the most con-
centrated effort taking place on
April 21, appropriately on Earth
Day weekend.
"Americans have always taken
pride in the beauty of their com-
munities and country, and Keep
America Beautiful has been
proudly leading the charge to take
care of tomorrow today," said G.
Raymond Epson, President of
Keep America Beautiful. In its
twenty-second year, the Great
American Cleanup continues to


make a lasting impact by creating
a cleaner, safer and more beauti-
ful environment through litter
cleanup, beautification efforts
and educational outreach.
Keep Palm Beach County
Beautiful, Inc., (KPBCB) a non-
profit and local affiliate of Keep
America Beautiful, coordinates
Great American Cleanup activities
in Palm Beach County in partner-
ship with the Solid Waste Authori-
ty. Over 4,500 volunteers in Palm
Beach County participated last
year in the 2006 Great American
Cleanup, picking up thousands of
pounds of trash and participating
in beautification events that
involved planting trees and flow-
ers and painting and refurbishing.
KPBCB also does educational out-
reach yearly with local elemen-
tary schools, involving the stu-
dents in Great American Cleanup
activities.


tine blood chemistries run can
determine how the organs are
functioning. 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 inconti-
nence can be minimized. Chang-
ing Jza Jza's food to a higher qual-
ity 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 inconti-

Nationally the 2006 Great
American Cleanup produced phe-
nomenal results with over 228
million pounds of litter and debris
collected; more than 2.5 million
scrap tires and 37 million plastic
(PET) bottles removed from the
waste stream; 10,000 illegal dump
sites cleaned; 38.5 million pounds
of aluminum and steel recycled;
over 5.5 million trees, flowers and
bulbs planted and more than
6,000 miles of rivers, lakes, and
shorelines cleaned by the strength
of over 2 million volunteers.
Many of America's leading
companies are dedicated to sup-
porting and sponsoring the efforts
for the 2007 Great American
Cleanup. The National Sponsors
are: American Honda Motor Co.,
Inc., Firestone Complete Auto
Care and TiresPlus, GLAD Force-
Flex Trash Bags, Pepsi-Cola Com-
pany, Sam's Club, The Scotts Mir-


nence medications have other
side effects, so it is beneficial 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.

Coal is generating 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.

After an extensive evaluation of
USCPC Pollution Control Technology
modern coal technologies, FPL
determined that an advanced tech-
nology called ultra-supercritical
pulverized coal (USCPC) is the best oG, Fabric
option to meet this need for reliable : or ESP
power with environmental protec- Elec roat ic
P .. P redpitator D
tion designed into the plant. lw .:
Stuck with
Ultra-supercritical refers to the "iss"'
highest level of efficiency and will sys.tm '
set a new standard for coal genera- coal fr
. Crusher Ho
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


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
concluding that this technology is
-.. the best choice to produce reliable
S" power for our customers. The pro-
i J ':::" posed FPL Glades Power Park will, in
SI fact, surpass the latest, stringent envi-
SI,.- I ft". ronmental regulations with a wide

Saint Patrick: keeping God's view and seeing good anyway!


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There are some common
things known about Saint Patrick;
how he used the shamrock to
talk about the Trinity, how he was
supposed to have driven the
snakes out of Ireland and how he
is celebrated with the "Emerald
Isle" with his color being green.
March 17 is the day he is remem-
bered by the Irish and non-Irish
alike. Like many heroes of the
Church, we regard them as
"saints" because they have done
something worth remembering.
As I was digging into his biogra-
phy, I was impressed by a revela-
tion that told me about his char-
acter and something that made


him worthy of remembrance. It
seems that he was born in A.D.
385 in Britain and at age 16 was
captured and enslaved by a band
of Irish marauders. After some
time, he escaped and went to
France. There he studied the faith
with church members and he
was given a ministry. He returned
to his homeland, Britain, and
would have had an ordinary and
happy life there, but shortly after
being called to a higher office in
the Church, he decided to return
to Ireland. It is his work in Ireland
for which he is best known and
he has been remembered by the
Irish people and the world for his
faith and zeal. Returning there in
A.D. 432 would have made him
47 years old when he began that
ministry; his real ministry and


calling. He died in A.D. 461, mak-
ing him 61 years old and being
among the Irish only 14 years.
Every now
and again, I
read about
persons who -
have returned .
to places '
where they
have been
imprisoned or
abused.
Recently, there SamuelS.
have been Thomas
prisoners of
war who have returned to the
countries where they were cap-
tured. Others have returned to
places of torment and fear: Nel-
son Mandela in South Africa or
some of our prisoners of war


returning to Viet Nam. We see
today those who return to the
war zones of the middle east;
after seeing first-hand and living
through what must have been
the worst experiences of their
lives. This must take a great deal
of courage and spiritual
strength; the majority of those
released or who escaped, never
want to go back and we can
understand why.
Apparently Patrick was one of
those people who did go back.
Not only did he want to go back,
but he ministered and became
greatly respected among those
who had originally captured and
enslaved him. He must have seen
something special among the
people that made him dedicate
the most fruitful years of his life to


them; something in spite of bad
first contacts. I will remember
Patrick for his example of
courage and seeing good when it
would have been so easy to see
bad. The Lord who looked down
from the cross and said "Father,
forgive them for they know not
what they do (Luke 23:34)"
would have been Patrick's exam-
ple. In the midst of His own suf-
fering, the Lord calls for forgive-
ness. He saw something good
among those who did not know
Him, those who tortured Him,
those who abandoned Him and
those who jeered Him and were
angry. The Lord taught "Love
your enemies and bless those
who persecute you (Matthew
5:44)" was to live out His teach-
ing in His own life: Patrick was to


follow Jesus' example and his
acts would change an entire peo-
ple. It is in living out what we
have been taught from God that
we can look for God's hand at
work in our lives.
In the midst of the worst of
things that could happen to us;
there is something to be learned,
something to call us to faith,
something to bring us closer to
God and something to prove to
be a chance to show what we
really believe. Patrick must have
seen something very good
among the people who enslaved
him, in spite of the circum-
stances and what happened. He
could see beyond just what was
going on; he had God's vision
about it all. That's what really
mattered and still does.


Growing up with blessings and woes, woes and blessings


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Growing up, we lived across
the street from Central Junior High
School. My friends and I played on
the school playground just about
every day. It was a simpler time, a
more trusting time. But things
were beginning to change.
One day at play, we noticed
that someone had put graffiti on
the wall of the school building. I'm
not sure I had ever seen graffiti
before. I know I hadn't seen one
of the two words scrawled on the
wall before. It began with the let-
ter "f" and the second word was
you. When we stopped by
Tommy's house later in the day,


Tommy and I shared what we had
read. His mother was horrified
and she said that if he said it again
he would get
his mouth
washed out
with soap; that
he was never to
say that word
or other words
like it. She sent
me home with
threats of call-
ing my parents John
and letting Hicks
them know
what we said. She ranted in the
way only a mother can rant and
she put the fear of God in me. I
don't think my parents were
informed about the situation, and


I was just as happy that they
weren't.
I learned my lesson: "nice peo-
ple don't curse". That way of see-
ing the world worked for me for a
long time. Then someone shared
with me that Christ cursed. Not in
a vile and demeaning way and
certainly not in the intent-to-
shock-and-scandalize way of graf-
fiti or contemporary cinema, but
rather as a word of warning to all
who choose to live in opposition
to God's way.
The Bible cleans it up in the
translation to English "woe to
you". Jesus not only conferred on
His hearers blessings, but also
pronounced upon them woes.
Please note that Jesus does not
wish these woes upon people


who are disobedient to God, nor
does He cause the woe in the pro-
nouncing of it, but He simply
announces that their disobedi-
ence results in the woes.
I fully believe that Jesus wants
nothing more than to have those
who live in woe to begin living in
blessedness. He wants this trans-
formation so much that He goes
to the cross to help make it hap-
pen. God wants us to be blessed.
God wants salvation for all. And
that's the important message that
many churches emphasize.
I have, however, worshipped
in places where the message was
based not on the promise of bless-
ing but on the promise of damna-
tion. Let me share that I much pre-
fer being blessed to being


damned. Nonetheless, the differ-
ence between the church that
preaches blessing and the church
that preaches woe is not really all
that much. One wants to love us
into heaven and one wants to
scare us out of hell. Blessings and
woes, woes and blessings.
I grew up knowing blessings. A
loving family consistently reaf-
firmed that I was loved. Good
teachers consistently exposed me
to powerful ideas and planted
seeds of success and happiness.
My church brought me comfort in
abundance. I enjoy blessings, and
I preach blessings, but I also rec-
ognize there comes a time for
challenges.
We are very good at saying yes
to all that is good and beautiful


and gentle and loving and kind
and nice, but what do we reject?
To what do we say, "NO!"?
The early Christians were per-
secuted not so much for what they
believed (Jesus Christ is Lord) but
for what they refused to believe
(Caesar is Lord). We pastors are
distinguished not only by what we
graciously support, but also by
what we condemn. If all that we
preach only seeks to make peace
with hearers, then we need to
check ourselves to see if we are
being faithful to the gospel.
Proclaiming blessings is not
bad, but we also need to recog-
nize the woes. There is graffiti on
the walls of this school of life, and
we need to be cognizant of the
woes as well as the blessings.

Can Christians do without denominations?


By Jackie Miller
First Christian
Church, Clewiston
To what denomination did
Peter, James, John, the 3000 on
Pentecost (Acts 2:38-47), Cor-
nelius, the Ethiopian eunch,
Lydia, the Corinthians and the
Philippian jailer belong (as well
as every else we read about in
the book of Acts)? The answer,
they belonged to none! They
were simply members of the
body of Christ, which is the
Lord's church (Eph. 1:22, 23;
Colossians 1:18; 24), yet they
were not members of any
denomination as we know them
today (Eph. 4:4-6). All who were
saved became members of this
body (Eph. 5:23), the church, by
virtue of the fact that the Lord
added them to it (Acts 2:47). Yet
they belonged to no denomina-
tion. They had been delivered


from the "power of darkness," or
the world, and were now trans-
lated into the "kingdom of God's
dear Son," which is the church
(Colossians 1:13, 14, 18), but
they were not members of any
denominational church. They
had been called into ONE BODY
(Colossians 3:15).
Just so today, if a sinner
believes in Christ, and is bap-
tized, just as the 3,000 on Pente-
cost were, the eunuch, Lydia,
etc., such would make this per-
son simply a CHRISTIAN, but
nothing more (Mark 16:16; Acts
2:36-41,8:35-39; 16:14, 15, 16:30,
34, Romans 6:3-4; Galatians 3:26-
27). This would not make him a
member of any denomination.
And if a great number should do
this, would they not have the
same status?
Should this number come
together on the first day of the

week to worship, Acts 20:7, iden-
tify themselves simply by the
name of Christ as did the apos-
tles and early Christians, accept
and teach the Bible as their only
rule of faith and practice, have
such leaders to serve as the Bible
authorizes, and believe and
observe the same teachings in
the same way as the apostles and
early Christians did, and as are
set forth in the Bible, would they
not simply be the Lord's church
without being a denomination.
We believe this is the position
taught in the Bible and that all of
us should take. The Bible only
makes only New Testament
Christians, no more and not less,
and as Christians we are mem-
bers of the New Testament
church, and that alone! If upon
repenting and being baptized
the Lord adds us to His church,
like in the first century, why be


joined to anything else? With the
possession of the Word of God
in its entirety, why think that we
call ourselves by denomination-
al names? We believe in Christ.
He is our creed, and we-do what
He says. Consequently the New
Testament is our only rule of
faith and doctrine (no man-
made creeds).
Does this sound good to you?
Does it sound too good to be
true? Most people will say that
they actually believe that this is
the way it should be, but getting
them to implement it is another
thing. Really, it is not a matter of
opinion or optional. Christ pur-
chased the church with His own
blood (Acts 20:28). The church
belongs to him. This is a very
serious matter, and it is of the
utmost importance that we lis-
ten and do what He says (John
12:48).

A bull looks out from the chute waiting for his rider Satur-
day, March 12, at the Xtreme Bulls competition in Brighton.
These bulls are selected because of their power and con-
sistent performance.


Marcus Michaelis from Idaho wears head and face protection
when riding. He settles down on the bull and readies himself for
eight seconds of gut-wrenching terror, hoping to be in the
money at the Xtreme Bulls competition in Brighton on March 10.


Jake Wade, 23, nicknamed "Snake" for his ability to slither
himself into the perfect position world-class bulls, rigs a bull
in the chute the night of March 12, at the Xtreme Bulls com-
petition in Brighton. Riders bring and put on their own rig-
ging before mounting their bulls for their eight-second ride.


Florida gets taste of Extreme Bulls


Cooper Klanngiesser grips the hand-strap woven into his rig-
ging as he prepares for the bull to explode from the chute at
the Xtreme Bells competition in Brighton on March 10.

Rodeo "clowns" are top athletes themselves, at time throw-
ing themselves between an angry, charging bull and a fallen
rider. Actually known as bullfighters and barrel men, their job
is cowboy protection. Here veteran PRCA clown and barrel
man Bryan Rodriguez, 35, waits and watches for the nod
from the cowboy, telling the man on the gate to let 'er rip.

and the riders know and care for
their own rigging. Rigging and
the solidly padded black protec-
tive vests all riders wear give the
riders a fighting chance against
the massive animals, chosen for
their misanthropic natures.
No fewer than 60 riders came
to compete in this event and also
in the Speckled Perch Rodeo in
Okeechobee. From Nevada,
Washington, Idaho, Arizona,
Wisconsin, Texas and Mississip--
pi they traveled.
Cody Hancock, from Arizona,
a 31-year-old who took it all in
2000 will ride, as will 2006 World
Champion 23 year old B.J. Schu-
macher from Wisconsin. The
trio of top riders is rounded out
by Zeb Lanham, 2006 Extreme
Bulls champion.
Not to be forgotten, the funny
men in the ring, bullfighters are
a bull rider's best friend. The
bullfighter's number one job is
to protect a fallen bull rider from
a rampaging bull, they often
throwtheir bodies between the
bull and the bull rider. Barrel
men also play an important role
in cowboy protection. They
often help to lure a bull away
from a cowboy. But that's not a

barrel man's only job. He's also
there to entertain the crowd dur-
ing breaks in the action.
Clowns, much like barrel
men, entertain the crowd during
breaks in the rodeo, but they
don't play a role in cowboy pro-
tection.
The tension down at the
chutes went from almost non-
existent to palpable when the
waiting riders slid down onto
their bulls. The bulls, brought to
Florida for the event by five live-
stock contractors, included 2006
Bull of the Year, Biloxi Blues,
unridden in 18 attempts and the
bull, Southwick. Bulls are pro-.
vided by stock contractors, prob-
ably the most overlooked people
in the production of a successful
rodeo.
The stock contractors breed
livestock and load animals for
the haul to the next rodeo. Their
main task is ensuring that the
four-legged athletes of profes-
sional rodeo are healthy, well-
fed, properly cared for and fit to
perform. And while the cow-
boys get most of the recognition,
the bucking bulls and horses at
PRCA rodeos play a vital role in
the success of the contestant. In
roughstock events, half the cow-
boy's score comes from the ani-
mal's ability to buck with power
and consistency. The value of
top bulls can reach $30,000, and
a first-rate bucking horse can sell
for more than $15,000.
Veteran rider, Cody Hancock
took the top money Saturday.
After being sidelined by an
injury last year, Cody came back
into the money with $15,058 for
the night followed by Bryan
Richardson with $9,559, Bobby
Welsh with $6,655 and Jimmy
Crosby with $6,147.

Phone tax


refund


available
TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Public Service Commission (PSC)
is encouraging taxpayers to take
advantage of a one-time-only tele-
phone tax refund. This tax season,
most taxpayers will easily qualify
for a standard telephone excise tax
refund, ranging from $30 to $60.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
reports more than 30 percent of
early filers in Florida have not
requested the refund, including
many people using tax preparers.
The federal government
stopped collecting the long-dis-
tance excise tax last August after
several federal court decisions
ruled the tax does not apply to
long-distance service as it is billed
today. Federal officials authorized a
one-time refund of the federal
excise tax collected on service
billed during the previous 41
months, stretching from the begin-
ning of March 2003 to the end of
July 2006. The tax continues to
apply to local-only phone service.
To make the refund easier to fig-
ure, the federal government estab-
lished a standard refund amount,
based on personal exemptions,
ranging from $30 to $60. If taxpay-
ers have phone bills and other
records, they can request the actual
amount of excise tax paid. Taxpay-
ers only have to fill out one line on
their return, and they don't need to
present proof to the IRS.

egory. The competition is stiff
and open to all senior class stu-


defts throughout Palm Beach

the most adroit and qualified indi-
viduals in their field of study
among the senior class.


Technology conference in PBC


PALM BEACH Mark your
calendars now for Monday, March
19 and be part of this year's con-
ference where the theme is Tech-
nology: Your Passport to the Glob-
al Stage.
Each year, the Educational
Technology Department of Palm
Beach County Schools hosts one
of the largest school district-run


technology conferences in the
U.S. With the assistance of the
Florida Educational Technology
Conference, this conference
brings some of the best known

ference financially, allowing our

The conference features
dozens of breakout sessions con-
ducted by Palm Beach County

vendor hall, food, fun, and much,
much more.


County to showcase languages


PALM BEACH Elementary
through high school students will
be showcasing their foreign lan-
guage skills (now referred to as
World Languages) by competing
March 16 and 17 at the Palm
Beach County World Language
Teachers Association Fair to be
held at Atlantic High School in
Delray Beach. Student projects
and videos will be judged on Fri-
day, March 16, from 5 until 8:30


p.m. in the school cafeteria. On
Saturday, the fair begins at 8 a.m.
with registration of schools who
already committed to participate
months ago.
Over 700 students will com-
pete in impromptu speaking,
declamation of poetry, reading
comprehension, skits, and plays
to name a few, in Spanish, French,
Italian, Chinese and American
Sign Language. While the previ-


ous competitions mentioned are
happening, the auditorium will be
filled with the judging of dancing,
singing and other dramatic per-
formances. At the end of the day,
schools will take home their rib-
bons and perhaps the first, sec-
ond, or third school trophy for
most points gathered in the com-
petitions.

Forestry updates



wildfire forecast


The outlook for spring weather
was updated on Wednesday, March
7, by Florida Division of Forestry
(DOF) meteorologist. The forecast
now calls for a drier than normal
spring instead of wetter than nor-
mal conditions originally expected.
With local conditions already
very dry, this increases the expecta-
tions of above normal wildfire
activity. Drier conditions mean that
if wildfires start they can grow
quickly, become more intense, and
be more difficult to suppress.
This time of year, wildfires are
started by people. People can pre-
vent wildfire starts by being care-
ful any time they are working with
fire or any type of machinery or
equipment that can generate
sparks or heat.
This would include your car

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their publishers or
corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or to try to
control public opinion. Our editors insist on purposeful neutrality. We try
to report the news fairly and facilitate a fair but vigorous discussion of
public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're proud to
understand the difference.
