City manager



offers few



explanations


City manager
proud of his work
in short tenure

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Vincent
Finizio, Belle Glade's former
city manager, has inspired a.
spectrum of emotions and
opinions in many of the people
he's come in contact during his
career.
He's been labeled a tight-
fisted leader, a gentle supervi-
sor who takes time out to get to
know his employees and offer
them encouragement and


empower them to do more,
but he's also been called a
snake in disguise and a flat out
racist by some of his fiercer
rivals.
On Monday, one of his
strongest supporters voted to
terminate his employment,
ending his less than two month
term as the city's top employ-
ee.
In the short time he was city
manager, Mr. Finizio let go
employees who had spent
many years at the city, but also
promoted others who he felt
deserved the chance to be rec-
ognized.

Canal Point Elementary


has Garden of Tolerance


Garden provides
students with a
creative setting

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
CANAL POINT Last
Wednesday, March 14, Canal
Point Elementary School
enjoyed the grand unveiling for a
project it's calling, "The Garden
of Tolerance."
The elementary school part-
nered with the University of Flori-
da Experiment Station, based in
Belle Glade, for the project.
According to Canal Point Ele-
mentary Principal LaVoise Taylor


Smith, the university came to the
school and worked with the stu-
dents on the project to expose
them; to teach them more about
the things that might help Canal
Point's economic growth.
The principal said the stu-
dents understand what pushes
the economic button in Canal
Point: farming and agriculture.
One unique aspect of the
school is that a farm exists on the
campus, the principal said, one
of the few examples of this in the
county.
According to the principal,
students plant and harvest the
vegetables in the "garden of tol-
erance," creating an environ-
ment that is secure, welcoming


and a pleasant place for students
to unwind and connect with
nature.
Once students are finished
enjoying the garden, they go
back into regular classrooms.
The garden is a nice distraction
from being kept indoors.
"It's another way that we
handle discipline in a positive
setting,'! said Principal Smith.
The garden features tables on
which tired admirers can sit.
One form of discipline that
the principal likes to use is what's
called the de-escalation tech-
nique. When a child's behavior
is out of' control, the garden of

Palm Beach County opens


at Legislative session


PALM BEACH Palm Beach
County "Rocked" Florida's Capi-
tol City during Palm Beach
County Days 2007, which was
held during the opening week of
the 2007 Florida Legislative Ses-
sion in Tallahassee. This annual
event featured speaking engage-
ments, informational meetings
and festive functions aimed at
gaining state lawmakers' sup-
port for local bills and spending
appropriations.
Commissioners, sponsors,
and registrants welcomed the
opportunity to meet personally
with state senators and repre-
sentatives, Cabinet members
and committee leaders urging
their support on a list of local
items. Among the top funding
priorities this year are broaden-
ing the economic base, provid-
ing safe and clean drinking
water, heading off unfunded
mandates and cost shifts, pro-
tecting the environment,
improving our transportation
systems, enhancing public safe-
ty and expanding parks and
youth recreation programs.
An important exchange of
information took place during
the Speakers Forum, a two-hour
session in the House Chambers
where budget and policy issues
are addressed. Speakers this
year included Sen. Dave Aron-
berg, Chair, Palm Beach County
Legislative Delegation; Rep.
Marco Rubio, Speaker of the
Florida House of Representa-
tives; Rep. Dan Gelber, Minority
Leader, Florida House of Repre-
sentatives; and Kurt Browning,
Florida Secretary of State.


Guest speakers at two spon-
sored breakfasts included Lieu-
tenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp,
Secretary of Education Jeanine
Blomberg and Frank Brogan,
President of F.A.U. This year's
"how to" lobbying sessions
focused on municipal and educa-
tion issues, and an intro to lobby-
ing. The sessions were conduct-
ed by Florida League of Cities,
Schoolhouse Consulting Group
and the Palm Beach County Leg-
islative Delegation Office.
One goal of Palm Beach
County Days is to increase the
legislative appeal of the events
and with members of the Palm
Beach County Legislative Dele-
gation hosting every event this
year, that goal was met and
exceeded with an estimated
attendance of over 70 legislators.
Also, to make the Wednesday
Night Reception more accessi-
ble to the entire Legislature, the
entire Capital Courtyard was
converted into a rock concert
festival complete with stage,
food and drink tents, VIP tent
and a light show befitting a rock
and roll legend.
Palm Beach County Days was
organized by the Public Affairs
Department with the help of
dozens of volunteers. Addition-
ally, 71 corporate and municipal
sponsors and nearly 400 regis-
trants picked up the tab for
meals,' lodging, transportation,
venue bookings, entertainment,
prizes and giveaways. Thanks to
all of those involved, Palm
Beach County Days 2007 was a
resounding success and will
only get better.

County to hold Wetlands Day event


PALM BEACH COUNTY- "It's
a opportunity to learn about the
ecology of south Florida and
understand the importance of
conservation," said Donald Camp-
bell, manager of the Green Cay
Nature Center which is the door-
way to the Green Cay Wetlands.
On Saturday, March 24, a col-
lection of local nature center
experts, wetland birds and ani-
mals, environmental volunteers,
naturalists and photographers
will be there to celebrate Wet-
lands Day 2007. Palm Beach
County Water Utilities Depart-
ment sponsors this free event to
promote awareness of water con-
servation and environmental
issues.
At 10 a.m. Karen Milstein and


Arlene Spagna will give a photo
critique and lecture on nature
photography, followed by a pres-
entation from the South Florida
Water Management District on
the water cycle and water conser-
vation at 11 a.m. At noon, Busch
wildlife will give a presentation on
the animals of the wetlands fea-
turing baby alligators and birds of
the prey. The day will conclude
with a wildlife release by the
SPCA Wildlife Care Center.
The Water Utilities Department
will kick off sales of their new
Water Conservation Kits, which
are $5 and hand out leak detec-
tion kits so participants can check
for toilet leaks at home. Palm
Beach Environmental Resource
Management will hand out native


saplings and information on
reforestation. Nature Center vol-
unteers will give boardwalk tours
and provide story telling at the
"Chickee Hut" every hour on the
half hour.
People arriving early will be
greeted with a bottle of ice-cold
water.
The Green Cay and Wakoda-
hatchee Wetland were built by
the Palm Beach County Water
Utilities Department as an impor-
tant component in its Reclaimed
Water Program. In addition to
providing valuable wildlife habitat
to more than 150 bird species, tur-
tles, fish, bobcats, foxes and
otters, the wetlands also receive
and help clean treated waste-
water that is piped underground


from the nearby Southern Region
Water Reclamation Facility. This
wastewater treatment plant also
supplies the surrounding com-
munity with reclaimed water, 4
cost savings for consumers while
conserving fresh drinking water
that would otherwise be used to
quench South Florida lawns and
golf courses.
The Green Cay Wetlands are
located at 12800 Hagen Rancl)
Road in Boynton Beach.
The Palm Beach County Water
Utilities Department is a departs
ment of the Palm Beach County
Board of County Commissioners,
serving approximately 450,000
residents with drinking water;
reclaimed water and wastewater
services.


Self-sufficiency program helps with dream home


PAHOKEE Patricia Morgan,
a divorced mother of two, joined
the Family Self-Sufficiency Pro-
gram (FSS) in July 2002, with the
Pahokee Housing Authority. It
was her heart's desire to own her
own home. Eleanor Johnson,
Section 8 Program Coordinator,
worked closely with Ms. Morgan
from her enrollment in FSS, to her
graduation from the five-year pro-
gram. The mission of the Section
8 FSS program, is to empower
families to becoming self-suffi-
cient through employment, job
training and education; also, to
empower families to become
homeowners.


When Ms. Morgan joined the
program, she was a hard worker
and was in the process of paying
off certain expenses to improve
her credit score. She saw this as a
first step toward meeting her goal
of owning her own home.
Although, Ms. Morgan is not one
to depend on the "System," she
recognized the fact that the Sec-
tion 8 Housing Choice Voucher
Program would enable her to not
only find decent housing of her
choice, but would establish and
maintain an escrow account to
help with the down payment of
her new home. The program
would also help with childcare,


transportation and other expens-
es, as deemed allowable. As part
of the FSS program, Ms. Morgan
attended budgeting and credit
counseling workshops necessary
to help her meet her goals.
In November 2006, Ms. Mor-
gan closed on her loan and
became a homeowner for the first
time.
As a single parent of two, Ms.
Mqrgan faced, but overcame
many challenges. With the assis-
tance of FSS, she was able to
enroll in a Medical Assistant Pro-
gram full time.
She graduated from the Acade-
my for Practical Nursing Health


Occupations Program in May
2003. After graduation, Ms. Mor-
gan. began working at a nursing
facility where she is presently
employed.
Ms. Morgan was overjoyed
when she picked up her check
from the Pahokee Housing
Authority for approximately
$5,000. She expressed much
appreciation for all the support
that she received through the FSS
Program. The real thanks, howev-
er, goes to the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development
for making this program possible.
Congratulations Ms. Morgan:
We wish you much success.


Glades area community awards celebration planned


BELLE GLADE The Glades
Interagency Network is hosting
its second Glades Community
Awards Recognition Celebration
on April 24, from 10 a.m. until
1:30 p.m. at the Dolly Hand Cul-
tural Arts Center, which is locat-
ed on the Campus of Palm
Beach Community College in
Belle Glade.
The Glades 2007 Community
Awards Recognition Celebration
is designed to bring the Western


Finizio

Continued From Page 1
The vice-mayor said his rea-
soning for choosing to go that
route included Mr. Finizio's
allegedly hostile relationships
with the Palm Beach County
government, U.S. Representative
Alcee Hastings, the city staff and
much of the general public.
Other grounds for termina-
tion, alleged by the vice-mayor,
included inappropriate letters
sent by Mr. Finizio to various
media outlets and government
officials, as well as personnel
decisions made by the city man-
ager without following the city's
personnel rules.
In regards to the inappropri-
ate letters allegedly sent by Mr.
Finizio to government officials,
they include letters sent to Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum, Gov-
ernor Charlie Crist and Con-
gressman Hastings.
In addition, allegations that
Mr. Finizio illegally taped conver-
sations of various government
officials drew the ire of the vice-
mayor.
Just before the termination
decision was made by the com-
missioners, Commissioners
Asia-Williams and Kendall said
that they were concerned about
a possible lawsuit that Mr.
Finizio could file against the city.
Commissioner Kendall said
that she did not vote Mr. Finizio
into office but does not want the
city to face liability issues in the
event Mr. Finizio was to be termi-
nated.
Commissioner Asia-Williams
echoed those sentiments, saying

gators that she refused to sell the
beer to the suspect because he
was under the age of 21, the
legal drinking age.
The witness said the suspect
became angry and left the store.
According to the report, a
man the witness believed to be
the suspect returned to the store
about an hour later with a black
mask over his head and face.
After entering the store, the
man brandished a black hand
gun in his right hand and pointed
the gun at the victim, telling her,
"give me all your money,"
according to the affidavit.
The victim handed the
masked man a black bag from
behind the counter with $200.
However, the man was agitated
because there wasn't enough


Communities of Palm Beach

pay tribute to individuals who
have made outstanding contri-
butions to our local organiza-
tions and to the Glades Commu-

organization, agency, business,
and individual will have an
opportunity to recognize up to
two people. Each honoree's
assessment fee is $40, which
will cover the cost of the hon-


that she must look for a possible
lawsuit by Mr. Finizio and other
tough issues.
In the end, however, the com-
missioners decided to vote in
favor of terminating the city
manager in hopes of the city
moving forward.
"I'm not pleased that Mr.
Finizio was hired in the first
place," said Commissioner
Kendall. "I'm glad that the com-
missioners could correct the
mistake so that our government
could move forward and work
with other officials to do what's
best for our residents and citi-
zenry."
"It was a very tough decision
to make and I want to make sure
that I want to remain unbiased
and look at the facts," said Com-
missioner Asia-Williams. "My
decision was to start with a
fresh, clean slate to make sure
that there are no hidden agendas
to move someone into a higher
position illegally again."
Commissioner Asia-Williams
said she has concerns about the
way city managers were hired in
the past, including the termina-
tion of former city manager
Newall Daughtrey, which fol-
lowed almost immediately by
the hiring of Mr. Finizio at the
Feb. 5 commission meeting.
The commissioners voted to
start a nationwide search for a
new city manager.
Commissioner Asia-Williams
said that proper procedures will
be utilized in the search.
"I saw it as an opportunity for
this city to select the best candi-
date for the new Belle Glade city
manager," said Commissioner
Asia-Williams. "I hope that the
city commission continues to


money inside the bag, according
to the report.
The man then grabbed the
victim by the neck with his left
hand and struck her on the left
side of her head with the gun,
leaving the victim with bruises
and scratches on the left side of
her head and several scratches
on the back side of her neck.
The case would remain
unsolved for some weeks until a
customer offered the clerk infor-
mation about the alleged attack-
er.
On March 9, the clerk con-
tacted the sheriff's office to
report that a customer had told
her the suspect's full name and
age.
After following up on the tip,
investigators arrested the sus-
pect and charged him with
armed robbery, aggravated bat-
tery and theft.

A workshop to approve a
nationwide search will convene
on Mar. 27 at 6 p.m., to be locat-
ed at city hall.
In that meeting, representa-
tives of the Range Riders Pro-
gram will be there to offer the
city some professional advice
and guidance in the selection
process for whoever the new city
manager will be at a later date.
For the time being, Assistant
City Manager Lillian Tomeu will
take over the post that Mr. Finizio
vacated.
Ms. Tomeu said she had an
excellent working relationship
with Mr. Finizio but respects the
decision of the commissioners.
Ms. Tomeu also said that she
will remain as the assistant city
manager, just with more respon-
sibilities.
"I will work with the commis-
sioners and follow their direc-
tives to the best of my abilities as
we try to move forward as a
city," said Ms. Tomeu.
The mayor said that he looks
at the decision of the commis-
sioners from a different perspec-
tive.
"I think that it was a bad deci-
sion to fire Mr. Finizio," Mayor
Sanchez said. "Maybe because a
city manager doesn't meet
someone's criteria for the week,

that means he's liable to get
fired."
The mayor said that he is con-
cerned about the future makeup,
of the city, as the termination of
Mr. Finizio currently leaves an
important void to be filled.
"What kind of message are
we sending for those bona-fide,
quality city managers who want
to come to Belle Glade and
move their families here?,"
Mayor Sanchez said. "It's a
wrong message, period."
In an article posted in The"
Sun Newspaper about tw6
weeks ago, Vice Mayor Garrett
said that if given a chance to do
so, Mr. Finizio will do a good job
for the city and that he will make
the city proud.
"My thoughts of Mr. Finizio
moving this city forward in
regards to my comments from
two weeks was prior to the
insulting letters that he sent td
various media outlets and elect-
ed officials," Vice-Mayor Garrett
said.
The vice-mayor now wants to,
look ahead and move on from'
what transpired during Mr.
Finizio's tenure as the city man-i
ager.
"I apologize to the people of
Belle Glade," said Vice-Mayor:
Garrett. "Now I want the city to:
move forward."

trains tend to run. To the best of our ability Florida Power &
Light Company wants to make sure that the things most
important to your quality of life don't change, but only get
better.

To meet a growing demand for electricity and provide an ade-
quate supply of fuel FPL is proposing to build an advanced
technology coal plant. It would be located approximately five
miles northwest of Moore Haven and its fuel would arrive by
railroad.

The advanced technology that we plan to use requires
environmentally-preferred coals that are low in sulfur, ash and
chlorine. The FPL Glades Power Park site is adjacent to an
existing rail line. We plan to use the local SCFE railroad and
the CSX and FEC railroads to deliver fuel to the site.


Keeping train traffic delays to a minimum

Regardless of the supplier, we recognize that the community i.
most interested in having us minimize the time associated
with train crossings as well as the number of trains coming
and going. While we aren't in a position to finalize suppliers
or routes until we first earn approval for the new plant, we are
fully committed to making as little impact on your daily
driving routines as possible.

will be made up of approximately 85-125 cars moving at
speeds between 20 and 40 miles per hour. And we expect, on
average, one or two coal trains a day making round trips in
and out of the plant site. Some smaller trains of approximately
40 cars will be needed less often to deliver limestone and
remove marketable byproducts like gypsum.

Also important is that the track to be added at the plant site
will be enclosed completely within the plant property.

FPL is committed to a long-term partnership with the
communities where our facilities are located. The Glades and
Hendry communities will be no exception. We want our
future neighbors to be involved throughout the planning
stages of this project. If you have additional questions about
potential train traffic locally, please call us at 888-256-2206.

place where the child and teacher
can work out problems outside of
the regular classroom setting.
"In an effort to maintain a safe
and secure learning environment
for all of our students, we always
need to be open to innovative ideas
that help us make the school center
a place to meet the needs of all of
our students," said Ms. Smith.
Marc Pruzansky, guidance
counselor for the school said the
garden is a great place where chil-
dren can sit, relax and use the area
to read, write and work on subjects
such as mathematics and reading,
or simply take in nature.
According to Mr. Pruzahsky, the
community is welcome to enjoy
the amenities of the garden.
"I hope that all of the people can
come and see our wonderful gar-
den and perhaps take the time to
relax, sit and enjoy a good book,"
said Mr. Pruzansky.
Barbara Saddler, a University of
Florida doctor's assistant plant
pathologist in agriculture, said that
the completion of the garden was
worth the hard work that the stu-
dents and faculty of the school, as
well as the university, put into it.
"I want to give the children
something back for their hard work
in the garden," said Ms. Saddler. "I
want to let them know that I appre-
ciate them."

dler played a big role in making it

Clewiston Museum celebrates Florida heritage month


CLEWISTON Florida has
designated the period March 15
through April 15 Florida Heritage
Month A Celebration of Flori-
da's Spirit. The goal is to encour-
age a better understanding of
and appreciation for Florida's
history and culture among the
people of our state. This month-
long tribute will heighten aware-
ness of our state's rich cultural
heritage, celebrating its historical
sites, museums, libraries, and
the visual and performing arts.


In observance of this pro-
gram, The Clewiston Museum
will provide a special program
on early Florida ranching featur-
ing Nancy Dale, PhD, published
author and writer. The event will
be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March
29 in the museum's theater. The
event is free and open to the
public. However, seating is limit-
ed and reservations can be made
by contacting the museum at
983-2879 or via email at clewis-
tonmusuem@earthlink.net.


Dr. Dale will make a short
presentation on the early Florida
cracker cowboys throughout the
central ranching region of South
Florida. The program will
include insights into the families
that comprise the pioneer ranch-
es in the area and how they real-
ly lived in those earlier days.
Those days were marked by
open rangelands with.no fence
allowed, free roaming herds and
cow hunters who annually
would cover wide expanses of


the state to round up the cattle of
each rancher to drive them to
markets on the east and west
coasts.
Dr. Dale's latest book, Would
Do, Could Do and Made Do, is a
living tribute and memorial to
the lessons inscribed by those
pioneer ranchers for their fami-
lies and for future generations of
Floridians. It tells how these
ranchers lived a unique lifestyle
in a bygone era and also how, in
many ways, their heritage con-


HRMC Foundation House gets a new look


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
The Hendry Regional Medical
Center (HRMC) Foundation
House has been receiving quite
a bit of attention lately. The City
of Clewiston, which leases the
building to the Foundation,
decided to take on the project of
beautifying the property. Sean
Scheffler coordinated the efforts,
along with his street department
crew. Also, the Cusas Group,
from CampE-Tu-Makee, assisted
in the landscaping project.
As one can see, the grounds
have a completely different
appearance they are now
beautifully landscaped, with
plants graciously provided by
the Clewiston Garden Club. In
addition, the City has built a
handicapped ramp and replaced
the roof of the building. The


Submitted photo/HRMC Foundation
The Hendry Regional Medical Center has been given a "lift"
with beautiful new landscaping, a new sign, a new handi-
capped ramp, a new roof and other renovations thanks to the
efforts of several local businesses and organizations.
Foundation sign, originally Printing, has been redesigned
donated by David Lyo LyonsoLyons and relocated.


As people are viewing the
recent activity surrounding the
Foundation House, many are
inquiring about what the HRMC
Foundation is all about. The
Foundation's purpose is to raise
charitable funds as a non-profit,
501(c)(3) corporation and to
direct those funds to the special
projects of Hendry Regional
Medical Center. The first project
will be the construction of a new
Emergency Room, Laboratory
and Surgery Suite in Clewiston
as well as an Urgent Care Center
to be located in LaBelle. The
Foundation is comprised of
eighteen members; all are local
community leaders who provide
diversified talents, interests and
strengths to the Foundation. For

tive Director, at (863) 983-2735.

NOTICE OF COMMISSION HEARING AND PREHEARING
FLORIDA PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION
DOCKET NO. 070098-EI


PETITION TO DETERMINE NEED FOR FPL GLADES POWER PARK UNITS 1
AND 2 ELECTRICAL POWER PLANT BY FLORIDA POWER & LIGHT COMPANY
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a hearing will be held before the Florida Public Service
Commission in the above docket regarding the petition of Florida Power & Light Company
(FPL) for determination of need for electrical power plants, at the following time and place:.
Monday Tuesday, April 16-17, 2007, 9:30 a.m.
Betty Easley Conference Center, Room 148
4075 Esplanade Way
Tallahassee, Florida
PURPOSE AND PROCEDURE
The purpose of this hearing will be for the Commission to take final action to determine the need, pur-
suant to Section 403.519, Florida Statutes, for FPL's proposed electrical power plants in Glades County,
Florida. This proceeding shall: (1) allow FPL to present evidence and testimony in support of its
petition for a determination of need for its proposed electrical power plants; (2) permit any intervenors
to present testimony and exhibits concerning this matter; (3) permit members of the public who are
not parties to the need determination proceeding the opportunity to present testimony concerning this
matter; and (4) allow for such other purposes as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The proceedings will be governed by the provisions of Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, Section 403.519,
Florida Statutes, and Chapters 25-22 and 25-106, Florida Administrative Code.
Under Section 403.519, Florida Statutes, the Commissior is the sole forum for the determination of
need for the proposed electrical power plants. In making its determination, the Commission must take
into account the need for electric system reliability and integrity, the need for adequate electricity at
a reasonable cost, the need for fuel diversity and supply reliability, and whether the proposed plant
expansions are the most cost-effective alternative available. In addition, the Commission must expressly
consider the conservation measures taken by or reasonably available to FPL which might mitigate the
need for the proposed plants and may consider other matters within its jurisdiction which it deems
relevant. The Commission's determination of need for the proposed plants shall create a presumption
of public need and necessity and shall serve as the Commission's report required by subsection
403.507(2)(a)2, Florida Statutes. An order entered by the Commission pursuant to this hearing shall
constitute final agency action.
Only issues relating to the need for the proposed power plants will be heard at this hearing. Separate
public hearings will be held before the Division of Administrative Hearings at a later date to consider
environmental and other impacts of the proposed plants and associated facilities.
Members of the public who are not parties to the need determination proceeding will have an oppor-
tunity to present testimony regarding the need for the proposed plants. All members of the public who
wish to offer testimony should be present at the beginning of the hearing, 9:30 a.m., Monday, April
16, 2007. All witnesses will be sworn in and will be subject to cross-examination at the conclusion of
their testimony. By providing public testimony, a person does not become a party to the proceeding.
Anyone wishing to become a party to this need determination proceeding should file an appropriate
petition pursuant to Rule 25-22.039, Florida Administrative Code, with the Director of the
Commission's Division of the Commission Clerk and Administrative Services at the address listed
below. Copies of the petition should be sent by mail to all parties. Those wishing to intervene in these
proceedings, unless appearing on their own behalf, must be represented by an attorney or other person
who can be determined to be a qualified representative pursuant to Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, and
Rule 28-106.106, Florida Administrative Code. Petitions for leave to intervene must be filed at least
five (5) days before the final hearing, must conform with Rule 28-106.201(2), Florida Administrative
Code, and must include allegations sufficient to demonstrate that the intervenor is entitled to partici-
pate in the proceeding as a matter of constitutional or statutory right or pursuant to Commission rule,
or that the substantial interests of the intervenor are subject to determination or will be affected
through the hearing.


Written comments regarding the need for the proposed plants and associated facilities may be sent to
the Commission at the following address:

Re: Docket No. 070098-El

GENERAL LOCATION AND PROJECT DESCRIPTION

east of the town of Moore Haven in an unincorporated area of Glades County, as well as associated
electric transmission facilities'located in Hendry County, Palm Beach County, and Broward County.
The proposed in-service dates for the proposed units are June 1, 2013 and June 1, 2014. FPL indicates
that it intends to pursue permitting on .a schedule, to allow for earlier in-service dates of late 2012 or
early 2013 for unit 1, and late 2013 or early 2014 for unit 2, if possible.
PREHEARING CONFERENCE
A prehearing conference will be held at the following time and place:
Thursday, April 5, 2007, at 9:30 AM
Room 148, Betty Easley Conference Center
4075 Esplanade Way
Tallahassee, Florida

(2) to determine the parties' positions on the issues; (3) to determine what facts, if any, may be stipulated;
(4) to dispose of any motions or other matters that may be pending; and (5) to consider any other
matters that may aid in the disposition of this case.

hearing will also be provided on the Commission's website (http://www.psc.state.fl.us/) under the Hot

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Thursday, March 22, 2007









Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, March 22, 2007


Manager
Continued From Page 1
He was criticized for targeting
minorities at city hall, yet he hired
a Hispanic to serve as his assis-
tant city manager.
His actions were seen as all
right to some in the community,
all wrong to others. In the days
leading up to his termination, the
manager found himself shunned
by almost everyone at City Hall.
Mr. Finizio decided to take it all
in stride, though, and he pre-
ferred to let his actions do the
talking for him.
The New Jersey
transplant
Mr. Finizio was born in Hobo-
ken, New Jersey, where he grew
up around the beauty salon his
family owned for a time. His
father was the manager of the
shop, and his mother and brother
and sister would help out there
after school or on weekends.
He was born into a Costa
Rican/Italian family with strong
roots in their culture. His grand-
mother would be a very strong
influence on his life, he said, and
he still remembers how good of a
cook she was, and how she nur-
tured him.
As a result, women in general
would figure heavily into his life.
"I was surrounded by women
of all ages my entire life," said Mr.
Finizio. He said this developed
into a very positive opinion of
women. They were in most
regards better "if not superior to
men," he said. "They're kinder,
more compassionate, forgiving."
Growing up, Vincent "lived in
the projects" and attended
Catholic school while he
dreamed of becoming a jet pilot.
The straight-A student enjoyed
his school, although he admits it
may have been tougher than
most other schools, something
that would shape his future
beliefs.
Catholic school was "stressful
from a scholastic standpoint,"
said Mr. Finizio. But, the school-
ing taught him an important les-
son.
"Self-discipline builds great
character in students. It was rig-
orous in a good and positive
way."
His favorite subjects in school
were creative writing, penman-
ship and biology, and, to pass the
time away, he would "write short
stories and pseudo newspaper
articles."
He still remembers his child-
hood friends.
"We never looked at each
other based on our color," he
said. "We were kids. Those were
the good times."
Mr. Finizio became interested
in music, and he remembers how
he used to play with Black Funk
and Motown bands at studio gigs
in Manhattan. His favorite artists
were the Four Tops and the
Temptations.
He studied music in college,
but he wouldn't last there, decid-
ing to drop out before he received
his degree.
"When I make moves, I move
fast, people disappear, so on," he
said of his decision to leave col-
lege, at.the same time weighing
in also on his termination of sev-
eral city employees in Belle
Glade.
Mr. Finizio as an older teenag-
er decided he wanted to move
away from the shores of New Jer-
sey, to try something new after he
was finished with school.
On moving to Florida, Mr.
Finizio said with a straight face, "I
wanted to catch the world's
record fish."
He moved to Ft. Pierce in the
late 1970s, meeting a county
commissioner in his first day in
town, and landing an engineering
job that would be his first intro-
duction to government and his
eventually being hired as city
manager for Pahokee, then city
manager for Belle Glade.


Brushes with scandal
Mr. Finizio's employment with
the city of Pahokee lasted longer
than his employment in Belle
Glade, but the same fundamental
criticisms he faced in Belle Glade
were the cause of his termination
in that neighboring city.
In Pahokee, Mr. Finizio was
heavily criticized by community
members and the local branch of
the NAACP for claiming that a
near-riot at a Pahokee park was
more than likely caused by
groups of Black men who gath-
ered en masse at the site one
weekend.
In the weeks following the
incident, his comments were con-
strued as racist, and the members
of the Pahokee city commission,
after their requests for an apology
were ignored by the manager,
voted to terminate Mr. Finizio.
Years later, in remembering.
the event, Mr. Finizio doesn't have
any regrets.
"I never said I'm sorry about
anything, because I'm not," the
former manager said.
Mr. Finizio said he doesn't
cater simply to the rich, or to the
White section of town. Being an
admirer of Martin Luther King Jr.,
he never thought he'd be on the
receiving end of a discrimination
accusation by any group.
"I consider all income levels,
from the poorest to the richest,
but on a scale from one to 10, that
consideration is a one," the man-
ager said. "What's more impor-
tant is to take that issue and ele-
vate it publicly to such a
prominent level in the community
that it finally gets addressed.
Something's gotta give."
When he decided to publish
comments that placed blame on
the Black community, Mr. Finizio
said then that his actions were
aimed at spurring the local
churches to get involved. Church-
es and other groups, though,
were deeply offended.
Most recently, his actions in
Belle Glade have drawn similar
attention.
His decision to terminate city
employees, write letters to state
officials targeting the "disruptive"
behavior of one of the commis-
sioners and his alleged refusal to
accept aid from the county to help
residents of low-income suddenly
faced with the prospect of having
to pay their late water bills or have
their service cut off, has irked
more than a few people.
The proof is in the results, Mr.
Finizio likes to say, and the city
collected what he claims were
$980,000 in overdue water bills in
record time, with another
$580,000 collected in the two
weeks following it.
A different
management style
By his own admission, Mr.
Finizio's management style
seems to rub people the wrong
way but he's not willing to
change any part of it.
"I have a hyper personality. I'm
not a procrastinator," he said.
"Government was created to do
for a person what that person is
incapable of achieving in their sin-
gular capacity. We help a person
do things they couldn't do on
their own."
His wife, Kathryn, whom he
met while playing drums at a
nightclub in Riviera Beach, is his
confidant the person he most
confides in after an especially
hard day at work.
According to her, she's seen
how the community has been
critical of her husband, but she
insists he's not by nature an
oppressive person.
"You get the impression he
can be a big bear," said Kathryn.
"He has a big heart, especially for
people who have been walked
on. He fights their battles for
them. He's a bulldog that latches
on."
People don't seem to under-
stand him, she said, but he has a
tough job.


"It's different in Palm Beach
and Belle Glade. It's almost like a
Darfur in the middle of Belle
Glade," said Kathryn. "That city
should be doing a hell of a lot bet-
ter."
Before he was terminated, Mr.
Finizio wasn't as willing to offer
explanations for his work, or his
style of managing, confident that
his actions would somehow justi-
fy what he did during his short
term.
"In order to correct injustice, it
takes more than just study
groups, workshops and words to
fix," said Mr. Finizio. "To some
people that type of doggedness,
determination, not yielding in the
face of adversity offends people.
When all is said and done, I usual-
ly find some of my staunchest crit-
ics wind up being my closest
friends."
Even while he refused time
and again to speak to the media,
Mr. Finizio reads most publica-
tions before he starts the day, but
chooses rarely to respond to any-
thing he reads.
"I notice the speech of the gen-
eral public at large, but I can't let it
divert me away from my number
one goal to revitalize Belle Glade,"
he said. "If I'm placed in a posi-
tion to ask permission to do every
little thing, I won't be able to
accomplish," he insisted. "In
Belle Glade, that has been the
case the city manager is
expected to ask permission of
15,000 residents to do anything."
Standing ground
Mr. Finizio makes mention of
his outreach to employees, how
he offered willing employees the
chance for promotion and raises,
and how he wanted to change
city hall's mentality one worker at
a time over "the next five years."
"That's a big leap of faith," he
said, because he only had a one-
year contract.
During his employment as
manager in Belle Glade, Mr.
Finizio said he got his inspiration
from the employees who did sup-
port him.
One of them was an employee
in the public utilities department,
better known as "Goat" to work-
ers in city hall.
According to Goat, the work-
ers in that department have
always been promised that things
would change, many of them
having gone for years without.
substantial pay raises. He said he
felt that Mr. Finizio could finally
change that for them.
After listening to the former
manager speak to the depart-
ment, Goat was confident that the
city had the right man on the job.
"I know two things: I know my
job and I know when someone's
trying to pull my leg. I've seen
them come and I've seen them
go," said Goat. "He's (Finizio)
talking my talk, the people's talk."
According to the worker, many
of the employees in the public
utilities department have been
around for years, working under
less than desirable conditions,
low morale and strife. When he's
wanted to recognize an employee
for doing well, Goat has always
had city hall turn down his
request for raises for employees.
"My people are out in the mid-
dle of the night, busting their
butts," said Goat, who himself
was disillusioned that he's not
making more money after so
many years with the city. While
he's had the opportunity to leave
and earn much more doing what
he's doing, he's stayed in Belle
Glade because, "This is where I
grew up. This is my home."
Mr. Finizio was willing to
change that.
"To work day in and day out
and not get recognition to me is
an atrocity," Mr. Finizio said.
The workers joke about it, and
some are more troubled by it than
others.
One of the .workers, a hard
working man, according to Goat,
continues to be overlooked.

"They call him Money, but he


"They call him Money, but he
probably don't have a dime."
The conclusion
The conclusion of most resi-
dents and those who follow poli-
tics in Belle Glade, Mr. Finizio was
aware, is that the manager had
some tough issues to tackle and
chose to tackle them differently
than others.
It would be his downfall.
At the March 20 city commis-
sion meeting, Commissioner Don
Garrett, one of the three commis-
sioners who initially voted to hire
Mr. Finizio, offered a motion to
fire him. Mayor Ray Torres
Sanchez cast the single vote in
opposition, Commissioner Shelly
Miller was absent.
"I could have managed city
hall, sat behind a desk and not
shut off water. I could have
schmoozed with commissioners
and the general public and prob-
ably have been the most popular
city manager ever," said Mr.
Finizio.
But he wouldn't let anybody
else get in his way of what he
thought was right.
He had his eye set on future
issues, and the dangers he felt
come with allowing a city to con-
tinue being mismanaged.
"Ghost moneymen what I
call them would love to see
this city die," he said. "In- five
years they can buy up everything.
I don't think the average person
understands this."
After each work day, he tried
to leave city matters behind,
which was always a challenging
task.
"On the way home, heading to
West Palm Beach, near 20-Mile
Bend, when I hit that spot in the
road that dips, my job was
behind me I freed myself from
the politics. If not, my head
would explode."
He was asked if he would ever
get caught stretching the limits of
his authority, a critical point now
that the city seems willing to pur-
sue possible criminal charges
against him.
Even if a commissioner asked
him to, he wouldn't he said.
"I would immediately reject it
without a question, even if it
meant losing my job," the man-
ager said in the days leading up to
March 20. "I would tell them to
go take a hike. I'm a licensed fish-
ing guide on Lake Okeechobee. I
would go fishing."
And his most vocal critics,
who he claims never came to visit
him at city hall?
"They stay away," he said.
"Throwing stones out of
range."

Is your property considered 'Firewise' newszap.comj
Conmunwty Links. Indvidual Voices.


By MaryAnn Morris
INI
From Jan. 1 to Feb. 28, there
were 604 wildfires in Florida and
58,355 acres have burned. If those
acreage numbers are something
you can't get your mind around,
think of it as slightly over 91 square
miles: a strip of land one mile
across and 91 plus miles long.
Should Floridians be "protect-
ed" from the burning of the land?
Why is there so much here burning
in Florida?
"Protection" is a relative term
and the first rule of protection is to
realize that you live in Florida. Flori-
da is different. Its seasons are differ-
ent. You have "wet" season and
"dry" season within natural cycles
of drought years and wet years. Its
land is open and flat.
"Every two to five years the
open prairies and pine flatwoods
will naturally burn," says Dale Arm-
strong, Senior Forester at the Okee-
chobee District of the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry. Mr. Armstrong
covers six counties: Okeechobee,
Highlands, Indian River, Martin, St.
Lucie and Glades Counties.
"There are things all Floridians
should know and practice here,
where fire is a natural part of life,"
he continued.
During the dry season there is
little rain, little humidity in the air
and windy/breezy days. All of this
makes for dry land. In January
there was frost, which killed a lot of
green vegetation, turning it brown
and dry. The sandy soil, with no
moisture added, has dried out
deeper and deeper and deeper.
Native plants, adapted to the
wet/dry season cycles are not
growing, many are not green at all.
These conditions have turned
ordinary grasses and underbrush
pastures, woods and unkempt
vacant lots into dry tinder where a
spark from a vehicle, machine or
careless windblown ash, will ignite
and spread, fanned by the breezes
that sweep across.
Florida's ecology depends on
fire to sweep clean the soil so seeds
of new plants can sprout to provide
forage for the deer, rabbits and
other animals that depend on
nature to feed them. When there is
food, they come and keep Florida's


ecology diverse and healthy.
Before Florida became so
populated, thousands, perhaps
millions of acres naturally
burned each year, but more and
more acreage is bounded by
houses, and less and less acreage
burns naturally.
"This has allowed the under-
brush to become high and thick, to
the point of being almost impene-
trable. Without a great deal of
awareness, alertness and care it
can be a hazard to lives and proper-
ty," said Mr. Armstrong.
Protect your home
from wildfire
Over the past 50 years, more
and more Floridians have moved
out of our cities to build homes
and businesses in outlying fringe
areas technically known as the
wildland/urban interface. In fact,
today almost a third of Florida's
population.lives in interface areas
where homes, sheds and barns
intermingle with forests and wild-
lands. Residents here, however,
usually don't realize they may live
too "close to nature"; they may, in
fact, be "Living on the Edge" of a
wildfire disaster.
On average, Florida experi-
ences the second highest num-
ber of wildfires in the nation.
During dry years, Florida experi-
ences severe wildfires wild-
fires that destroy homes, disrupt
people's lives and impact the
State's economy.
The simple truth is that few fire
departments have adequate
resources to protect every home in
the wildland/urban interface.
Homeowners must become
partners in fire protection. But
there is also an important role for
architects who design homes,
builders, insurance agents, elected
officials, planners, and educators
- everyone who helps shape our
communities.
Areas where homes and forests
meet or mix together are the "wild-
land/urban interface." Homes in'
these locations need special con-
sideration.
You and your neighbors can
take action to protect your com-
munity from wildfire dangers.
Understand the factors that can
make a neighborhood either less


or more vulnerable to a wildfire
with the Hazard & Wildfire Risk
Assessment Score sheet.
Is your home
'Firewise'?
Learn about the two most vul-
nerable parts of a home, the
"home ignition zone" for wildfires
and defensible space.
How homes can be designed,
built and maintained to withstand
a wildfire.
A "defensible space" of at least
30 feet in any direction around your
home increases the likelihood that
a home will survive a wildfire even
in the absence of firefighters. Learn
how to utilize these landscaping
techniques online at http://www.fl-
dof.com/wildfire/index.html.
Your community or neighbor-
hood can help with local preven-
tion and reduced losses to wild-
land/urban interface fire by
participating in this national pro-
gram.
Older, even wood-frame home
in high wildfire hazard areas can be
modified and made Firewise by
creating a "defensible space"
around the structure for wildfire
protection without losing the
"woodsy" look and feel.
"Clean the debris out of your
gutters and off your roof," said Dale
Armstrong.
Much of what is known about
protecting homes from wildland
fire is based upon the work of Jack
Cohen, a Fire Research Scientist at
the U.S. Forest Service Fire Lab in
Missoula, Mont. Mr. Cohen has
been studying wildfires for almost
30 years. His research and field
investigations support some inter-
esting explanations for home loss-
es associated with wildland/urban
interface fires. Mr. Cohen found
that most willdland/urban inter-
face homes are lost because of
ignitions associated with the two
most vulnerable parts of a home:
The roof, and gutters; and,
The area immediately sur-
rounding the structure.
Mr. Cohen's research results
indicate that home ignitions usual-
ly occur over relatively short dis-
tances tens of yards, not hun-
dreds of feet from little things
associated with either:
Fire brands landing on and

Having a blast
Seniors from the Glades Diamond Housing Development in Belle Glade are enjoying a
picnic at the complex under the sun. The annual picnic is sponsored by coordinators
Alfonzo Funderburk and Marcus Saddler. The seniors were treated to barbeque ribs, pota-
to salad, baked beans and drinks.


Wildfire danger increases with lack of rain


The risk of wildfire continues
to increase as recent rainfall pre-
dicted for our area left on aver-
age, a mere quarter of an inch.
Dryness as measured by the
KBDI (Keetch-Byram Drought
Index) is well above normal lev-
els for this time of the year. The
Index runs from zero 800 with
zero indicating the ground is
fully saturated. 800 indicates dry,
desert like soil conditions. The
average KBDI for the local dis-
trict which includes Lee, Collier
and Hendry County, currently
stands at 652.

Many areas in the district
including Lehigh Acres in Lee
County are already above 700.
Once the KBDI climbs above
normal levels wildfires spread
more quickly, become more
intense and are more difficult to
control. Dryness will continue to
increase unless significant rain-
fall is received something that is
not expected until the summer
rain pattern begins.
The number ,of wildfires in
the district has increased sharply.
During the first half of March, the
DOF district has responded to 31


wildfires throughout this 3 coun-
ty area. This compares to our
historical average of 29 wildfires
for the entire month of March.
This time of the year, wildfires
are caused by people, either
because of carelessness or start-
ed intentionally. Everyone needs
to use extreme care every time
they use anything involving a
flame or use any type of machin-
ery that can cause a spark:
grinders, welding equipment,
cars parking on grass and don't
take your ATV off trail into the
rough, they can spark, too.

around the structure, or
Flames from slow-moving,
low-intensity surface fires contact-
ing flammable portions of the
structure.
This means that the homeown-
er can play a significant role in
reducing home losses from wild-
fires by reducing fuels and through
careful landscaping in what Cohen
calls the "home ignition zone', an
area that extends outward from the
home 100 200 feet in all direc-
tions. Research has shown that the
home ignition zone principally
determines the potential for home
ignitions during severe wildfires.
Case studies indicate that the
most critical area is a zone of I
"defensible space" within 30 feet of
the structure.
Maintaining a lean, clean and
green landscape within 30 feet of a
structure can make a significant
difference in whether it survives a
wildfire. The important thing is that
action must be taken before wild-
fire threatens.
Lean only allow small
amounts of flammable vegetation;
Clean no accumulations of
dead vegetation; and,
Green plants are healthy and
green.
Reducing fuel within the defen-
sible space means creating a land-
scape that breaks up the continuity
of brush and other vegetation that
could bring wildfire in contact with
any flammable portion of the struc-
ture.
This may involve:
Eliminating any flammable
vegetation in contact with the
structure;
Thinning out trees and shrubs
so there is 10 to 15 feet between
the tree crowns;
Pruning tree limbs to a height
of 6 to 10 feet;
Replacing highly-flammable
landscape material with plant
materials having a higher water
content;
Replacing flammable mulch
adjacent the structure with gravel
or rock;
Eliminating "ladder fuels"
near the structure that might carry
a surface fire to the roof or eaves.
Fire is a natural part of our
Florida ecosystems. It is not a
matter of if we are going to have
wildfires, but when will we have
wildfires and at what intensity.
Homeowners must assume a
major role in wildfire protection
by taking action to reduce the
ignitability of their homes before
the threat of a wildfire.

Good manners are going to the dogs


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
It was a long hard day. I was
dragging until I reached the front
door. Pepper, my Sheltie-hound
mix greeted me
with excite-
ment. As I
plopped down
in the easy
chair, she rested
her head on my
lap and nuzzled
me. It wasn't
long until my
hand was inch- John
ing toward the Hicks
dog and I began
to stroke her fur. Within minutes I
was feeling better. What is it about
dogs that evokes such a positive
response? How are they able to
provide such comfort and reassur-
ance?
I firmly believe that God put
dogs on earth to remind us of some
important truths. What He taught
us is not only reinforced by Scrip-
ture, but by simply looking at the
family pet. The point? Perhaps we


should try a little harder to be
"more dogly" in our daily lives in
order to be more Godly.. Here are
10 dog-truths that might help us:
1. Greet loved ones with'wag-
ging tail. Nothing is more important
than feeling loved and there's no
creature that does it better than a
dog. The wagging tail affirms that
this is where we belong. This is our
home, where we live, where we're
safe and where we're loved.
2. Eat with gusto and enthusi-
asm. Dogs eat with a passion, lick-
ing the dish clean until every last
scent of gravy is gone. Dogs know
that eating is a celebration of life.
Breaking bread together is holy. To
nourish the body is not a chore, but
a sacrament. At meals, animosities
are dissipated, barriers are broken
down and friendships are renewed
and strengthened. So, eat with
gusto. Enjoy all the flavors and
spices of creation.
3. On hot days, drink lots of
water and lie under a shady tree.
Relax, slow down and enjoy. Give
yourself a time out. Opt out, unplug
and get lazy.
4. Run, romp and play daily.


Physical exercise is as important for
the soul as it is for the body. No dis-
ciple of Christ can be as faithful and
effective when the body is run
down and health is unnecessarily
poor. When we learn how to play
and stretch and get in some exer-
cise we'll feel better from the inside
out.
5. Be loyal. Loyalty is a good
thing, and if dogs are nothing else,
they are loyal. Loyalty is a critical
element of discipleship, for it
speaks to our relationship with our
spouse, our vocation, our commu-
nity, our friends, and our God.
6. When you're happy, dance
around and wag your tail. Thank-
fulness and celebration are impor-
tant dynamics for successful and
healthy living. Joyfulness is a gift we
give ourselves that enables us to
affirm the essential goodness of
life. Even when adversity strikes,
our inner joy helps us maintain our
perspective and carries us through
the low moments.
7. If someone is having a bad
day, sit close by and nuzzle gently.
We all have bad days. We all need
encouragement and affirmation.


When we are depressed, it takes
only a quiet word, a gentle touch to
bring us around.
8. No matter how harshlyyou're
scolded, don't pout run back and
make friends. Carrying grudges
makes life a grind. Make friends
and keep them. Overlook faults
and assume the best. Don't keep a
scorecard of rights and wrongs.
Don't take offense.
9. Avoid biting when a simple
growl will do. We do not need to
injure others by what we say or do.
We can be strong with love; firm
with kindness.
10. Bark with your buddies.
Barking is an act of commonality.
Barking says we belong in this
together. We are one.
Think about the kind of ministry
we would have in our churches,
homes, schools, and communities
if we showed doglike qualities like
loyalty and obedience, and offer
comfort and a sense of well-being.
What if we were consistently more
humble, more loving, more grate-
ful, more joyful and more kind-
hearted? Perhaps it is time we go to
the dogs!


There should be communion every Sunday!


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Acts 20:7 says, "And upon the
first day of the week when the
disciples come together to
BREAK BREAD, Paul preached
unto them..."
Here we have an example and
pattern authority for the weekly
observance of the Lord's Supper..
If it were left entirely up the
account of Jesus instituting the
Lord's Supper (Matthew 26:26-
29), we would be at a loss as to
knowing the frequency we
should partake of this supper.
However, Jesus promised the
Apostles that not only would the
Holy Spirit bring all things to their
remembrance (John 14:16), he
would guide them into all unre-
vealed religious truth (John
16:13). Now in Acts 20:7 the
church at Troas, operating under
the very sight of an inspired apos-
tle, came together on the first day
of the week "to BREAK BREAD."
It is incidental that the apostle
Paul was there and preached; the
purpose of their coming together
was to have the Lord's Supper.
Every week has a first day and is
implied that this was their cus-
tomary practice. Under the Old
Testament the Jews were com-
manded to "Remember the Sab-
bath day, to keep it holy." They
didn't ask, "Which Sabbath (sev-
enth) day?" Every week had a
seventh day and they understood
this to mean they should keep
every Sabbath unto God. This
same is true as we read Acts 20:7
of the Lord's Supper on the first
day of the week.
We are not left to this Scrip-
ture only for evidence of the
practice of weekly communion;
it is evident in I Corinthians. The
church at Corinth was a problem
church rented asunder by party-
ism, immorality, and the abuse of
divine worship. It seems they had
reduced the Lord's Supper to a
drunken feast. Notice: "When ye
come together therefore into one
place, this is not to eat the Lord's
Supper. For in eating every one
taketh before other his own sup-
per: and one is hungry and
another drunken" (I Cor. 11:20-
21). The Amplified New Testa-
ment's application of verse 20 is
a little plainer. "So when you
gather for your meetings, it is not
the supper instituted by the Lord
that you eat." In other words,

they were supposedly observing
the Lord's Supper, but had
reduced it to a common meal
and a drunken feast. What we
wish.to emphasize is that they
were doing this "WHEN" they
came together; in other words,
every time they were regularly
assembled. They were keeping
the Lord's Supper, although in a
greatly degenerated fashion,
every time that the church met.
When was the regular meeting
time? If we can establish this, we
can know the frequency of the
Lord's Supper observance. 1 Cor.
16:2 gives the answer: "upon the
first day of the week.'
It is also interesting to note
and not without significance,
that the Lord's Supper was
observed on the day the church
was established the day of Pente-
cost (Acts 2). On what day of the
week was this Jewish holy day
celebrated? Check Leviticus
23:15, 16. Seven Sabbaths fol-
'lowed the Passover and the next
day after the seventh Sabbath
was Pentecost (50th). Thus, it
was celebrated on the first day of
the week. The church had its
beginning on this day and the
church first observed the Lord's
Supper on this day. Having refer-
ence to their worship on this day
the record reads, "And the con-
tinued steadfastly in the Apostle's
doctrine and fellowship, and in
BREAKING OF BREAD and in
prayers" (Acts 2:42).
Furthermore, it is a fact from
outside history that the early
church observed the Lord's Sup-
per EVERY Lord's Day and com-
petent scholarship (even denom-
inational scholarship) is agreed
to this. The following as exam-
ples will illustrates the latter.
These are comments made by
denominational scholars (in
their well-known commentaries)
on Acts 20:7, explaining why the
church at Troas came together
on the first day of the week.
ALBERT BARNES (Presbyter-
ian): "Evidently to celebrate the
Lord's Supper...It is possible that
the apostles and early Christians
celebrated the Lord's Supper
EVERY LORD'S DAY."
ADAM CLARK (Methodist):
"To break the Eucharist, as the
Syriac has it: intimating by this
that they were accustomed to
giving the Holy Sacrament on
EACH LORD'S DAY."


In the light of this array of
information, we are made to ask
why modern "churches" are not
having the Lord's Supper every
Lord's day. Obviously this is a
neglected Scriptural teaching
which has been replaced by tradi-
tion. But, as we seeking unre-
servedly to return to the divine


pattern to be simply the Lord's
"New Testament" church, we will
have this supper each Lord's day
as the very center of our worship.
Faithful Christians will be there to
remember the supreme sacrifice
made for their salvation...to wor-
ship the Lord in the way he
would have them worship.
