Churches promoting healing


'Quad City Community
Healing' event
aims to stop violence

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES It all started with
a conversation between two re-
ligious leaders several months
ago.
The two leaders, Brother
Charles Anderson and Deacon
Cornelius FoWler, talked aboul


the idea of collaborating with as
many churches from the Clew-
iston, South Bay, Belle Glade
and Pahokee area in producing
a community, healing event that
would address the ongoing vio-
lence in the Glades area.
But, as Mr. Anderson puts it,
the actual idea came from Dea-
con Fowler himself.
"In our conversation, Deacon
Fowler said that, about five years
ago, God had laid the idea on his
heart to try to put all the church-
es in the four communities to
pull everyone together because


he felt the Glades area needed a
healing," said Mr. Anderson,
After the conversation took
place, the two contacted various
leaders in the Glades communi-
ties to support the cause.
In the end, organizations such
as the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office (PBSO), Palm Beach
Community College (PBCC), the
Ministerial Alliance and First Bap-
tist Church of Belle Glade, led by
Pastor Gary Ford, joined ivith the
two men in coming up with the
'Quad City Community Healing'
event, held from Aug. 9 to I1 at

the Dolly Hand Cultural Center in
Belle Glade.
Mbre than 60 churches from
the four communities, as well
as the areas of Lake Harbor and
Canal Point, contributed to the
three-day event.
According to Deacon,Fowler,
the primary purpose of the event
was to rally the Glades area
around the issues of racial divi-
sion and crime.
The event featured three
nights of worship services; with
an average of 300 people in at-
tendance each night, according


to Mr. Anderson.
"Spiritually for me, this com-
munity healing event has opened
my eyes to all of the different
needs in the community," said
the deacon. "It has also brought
notice that all of the different na-
tionalities in the community arg
looking for a change."
The community healing event
also featured a variety of work-
shops and seminars, including a
gang presentation that was con-
ducted by Detective Kevin Kus-

BELLE GLADE History
was made in the Glades when
the three football teams, Glades
Day, Pahokee and Glades Cen-
tral, all won their respective
state championships last year.
For its part, the Glades Day
Gators look to repeat as the
Class 1A state champions in
hopes for another historic mo-
ment in the Glades area.
Pete Walker, the Gators head


coach, is putting his team's fo-
cus strictly on this upcoming

Aug. 24.
What the coach is looking
for, above all else, is the team
to feel like they are all 'broth-

Coach Walker believe
that the way that will be ac-
complished is through each
teammate looking out for one
another and practicing selfless-
ness.

Five hunters fined in Hendry County


FORT MYERS The U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service and the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission announced that five
hunters each plead guilty-for kill-
ing over the legal limit of water-
fowl and wanton waste for leav-
ing behind many of the waterfowl
they killed while hunting in Hen-
dry County.
These violations are misde-
meanor crimes under the Migra-
tory Bird Treaty Act and carry a
maximum fine of $15,000, six
months in jail and 5 years proba-
tion for each count.
United States Magistrate Judge-
Douglas N. Frazier found Florida
residents Javiet Garcia, Manuel
Rodriguez, Daniel Cruz, Reinaldo
Roman and Juan Perez guilty of
the violations of federal wildlife
law and sentenced each as fol-
lows; .Garcia received a $6,000


fine, Rodriguez and Cruz each re-
ceived a $5,000 fine, Perez and Ro-
man each received a $4,000 fine
and each defendant was ordered
to pay court costs of $70.00.
In addition each defendant was
placed on probation for three and
a half years, with a special condi-
tion of their probation that they
may not hunt any wildlife in the
United States during their proba-
tion period.
"These folks were greedy," said
Jim Gale the lead specail agent for
the Southwest Region. They are
not hunters and they have done
a great disservice to the American
hunting tradition."
Mr. Gale went on to say that
hunters for decades have paid
out most of the freight that made
many of the wildlife conservation
successes of the past century pos-
sible through the Pittman-Robin-


son Wildlife Restoration program,
purchasing duck stamps that
benefit land conservation and
supporting many of the hunting
conservation organizations.
"These men showed a shame-
ful lack respect for wildlife, violat-
ing the ethical standards that true
outdoorsmen hold dear," Major
Brett Norton Commander of Law
Enforcement, South Region, Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Commission.
"It was great to work with the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Commission on
the case. Such partnerships are
crucial to protecting Florida's nat-
ural resources.
According to court docu-
ments and information provided
in court, Garcia, Rodriguez, Cruz,
Perez- and' Ramon were hunt-
ing waterfowl in Hendry County
when Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission Officers in the


area witnessed the defendants
killing many ducks. As the officers
approached, the defendants con-
tinued shooting more ducks, then
picked through the ducks, taking
the ones they wanted and leaving
the rest behind. In total the defen-
dants killed 88 ducks, more than
50 ducks above the legal limit.
This equates to each hunter killing
more fhan. twice the legal limit.
The investigation was referred
Sto the' United States Fish and
Wildlife Service for further inves-
tigation and federal prosecution
due to the severity of the violation
and the gross over limit of water-
fowl killed.
This case was investigated
by the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Service and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion.

Sugar industry



is losing billions


Drought affecting
second-largest
industry in, state

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
WEST PALM BEACH In a
meeting to discuss the possible
need to back pump from the ca-
nals into the lake to provide some
relief to the current drought con-
ditions Sugar representatives
and their advocates said that they
cannot support sustained water
restrictions.
"I'm bringing you fear from
the agricultural industry," said
Nelson Mongiovi, director of the
division of marketing with the
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture (FDA). "I will not tell you
the sky is falling ... but there are
gray clouds we have never seen
before."
Arguing emphatically that the
water restrictions are causing se-
vere harm to the industry, sugar
proponents made the case that
the negative environmental af-
fects associated with back pump-
ing are outweighed by the need
to have enough water with which
Sto continue doing business.
It would not be enough in the
end and farmers and the industry
say they find themselves in a pre-
carious situation. The South Flor-
ida Water Management District's
+ (SFWMD) board voted against
back pumping.
The speakers painted a dreary
picture. ,
"We'll have a serious crisis
if we don't find an alternative
source of water," Mr. Mongiovi
warned SFWMD officials. "This
is not just about Big Sugar, Big
Citrus ... being less profitable." '
The FDA representative
seemed to scold officials for not
acting on implementing the back
pumping measures during their
meeting in July. According to
him, the water restrictions that
are now costing the agricultural
industry $86 million monthly
would have been lifted by De-
cember if the board had taken
that action. .
The losses, if they are ignored
will be, the FDA official said, "A
billion over the course of the
next 24 months."
On the other side of the dis-
cussion, district officials did not
seem completely opposed to the
thought of using back pumping
to ameliorate the damages that
.the months without rain have
caused.
The discussion turned to


the issue of water supply back
pumping a strictly unique situa-
tion that is necessary only under
drought conditions. The usual,
back pumping method involves
releasing water from the lake dur-
ing especially rainy events (flood
control), while the current issue
focuses on putting water back
into the lake (water supply).
District officials were careful,
however, to say that the solution
was not simply in back pumping,
but perhaps a combination of
things, including using the Palm
Beach Aggregates site, which
holds a large amount of water,
to help make the drought slightly
more bearable.
"We have to do something
and do everything we humanly
can," said Eric Buermann, SF-
WMD chairman. "I don't think
anybody here is an,'enemy of
agriculture."
Consultants to the water
management district provided
conservative estimates on how
likely the back pumping is set to
help the situation.
Under some estimates pro-
vided by district officials, the lake
level would stand to rise by'a foot
or more. Using estimates from
one of the outside consultants,
the district can expect gains of
only .3 to .6 inches.
All speakers agreed, including
the doctor, that the precise im-
pact is too inconsistent a variable
to pinpoint. Charts depicted a.
wide gap of possibilities relating
to how much back pumping was
expected to help the situation.
The concrete answers remain
elusive even to experts.
"One of the questions I get is,
once you put water into the lake,
how much can you get back? I
don't know how much," said
Gary Goforth, who holds a doc-.
torate, with Gary Goforth, Inc.
said that the measure is difficult.
Pointing to one of the charts
depicting the possible measure
of the back pumping's impact to
the lake, Shannon Estenoz, SF-
WMD board member said, "The
fat line is what we know, the next
is an explosion of the unknown.
Ultimately, we don't know."
The following day, water
managers voted 4-3 against back
pumping, with the board ma-
jority citing, among other fac-
tors, the uncertainty of the back
pumping.
"God bless the farmers," one
woman said, who compared the
issue with a medical ailment. "I
think Lake Okeechobee is our
colon ... it's in trouble."

Decision favors Supervisor of Elections


WEST PALM BEACH United
States District Court Judge Donald
M. Middlebrooks recently has an-
nounced his decision in favor of
Palm Beach County Supervisor of
Elections Dr, Arthur Anderson in
the case of Jerry Rabinowitz vs.
Dr. Arthur Anderson, Palm Beach
County Supervisor of Elections in
the Southern District of Florida.
"I am very pleased with the
court's decision on this critical
matter," said Dr. Anderson. "Na-
tional ramifications and wide-
spread chaos in arranging voter-
convenient polling locations
would have surely resulted had
Judge Middlebrooks not come to
this conclusion." "I also greatly
appreciate the actions taken-by
our attorneys, Henry Handler and
David Friedman, of Weiss, Han-
dler, Angelos & Cornwell, which
resulted in a summary judgment
and avoided the expense of a trial


and in concluding this matter."
In his 15-page summary judg-
ment decision, Judge Middle-
brooks found Rabinowitz failed
to discover any evidence that the
use of houses of worship as poll-
ing sites had the effect of endors-
ing religion or resulted in exces-
sive entanglement.
"Based upon the undisputed
facts in the record, Defendant's
practice of using the Church for
voting does not convey endorse-
ment or disapproval of religion to
an informed, reasonable observ-
er," wrote Judge Middlebrooks
"Rather than having a religious
purpose or effect, the placement
of a polling precinct at the Church
had the primary effect of facilitat-
ing a secular election," added
Judge Middlebrooks.
Judge Middlebrooks conclud-
ed that, "Defendant's practice
has a secular purpose, it does


not have the effect of endorsing
religion and it does not create an
excessive entanglement between
the Church and the state. While
Plaintiff may feel discomfort
when viewing the religious sym-
bols at the Church, that feeling of
discomfort does not equate to a
Constitutional violation in the ab-
sence of credible evidence."
Plaintiff Rabinowitz, a resident
of Florida and a registered voter in
Palm Beach County, sued on Dec.
1, 2006, alleging that use of a Cath-
olic church as his polling location
violated the Establishment Clause
of the United States Constitution.
,While he brought this action indi-
vidually, his amended complaint
sought an order enjoining the use
of houses of worship as polling
sites in all of Palm Beach County.
Rabinowitz argued that this prac-
tice advances religion and results
in excessive entanglement, citing


'the Church's religious displays as
evidence that Dr. Anderson was
unconstitutionally endorsing reli-
gion.
Defendant Dr. Anderson ar-
gued that his use of houses of
worship as polling locations has
a secular purpose, does not ad-
vance religion and does not result
in excessive entanglement be-
tween religion and the state. There
are approximately 100 houses of
worship, comprised of avariety.of
religions, used as polling places
in Palm Beach County, obtained
through "Polling Location Agree- '
ments" entered into with various
churches and synagogues.

Palm Beach County Supervisor of
Elections Office, including voter
registration; absentee.and/or early
voting, poll, worker volunteering,' ,

Progress on new hospital continues nowszao.commuityir1triic.J.-
HOW8Zap.comi


WEST PALM BEACH The
message is as big and bold as the
bright red signs: "Future home of
your Glades regional hospital."
On Aug. 8, the health care
district erected two 24 foot wide
signs on vacant 50 acre property
at the intersection of U.S. 441 and
State Road 80 where a medical
campus with a 70 bed hospital
will be built over the next two
and a half years.
Bulldozers will soon be rum-
bling over what was once a sugar
cane field and the district is plan-
ning for a formal dedication of
the site in the late fall.
"These are truly signs of
progress," said Dwight D. Chen-
ette, Chief Executive Officer of
the Health Care District of Palm
Beach County.
"Working together we have
come a long way just to get to this
point," he said. "The rezoning of
the property has been accom-
plished and a design established
for what is going to be a techno-
logically advanced medical com-
plex serving all of the communi-
ties around Lake Okeechobee in
Western Palm Beach County..
The signs have been placed
along U.S. 441 and State Road 80
(also known as Main Street and
Hooker Highway) which meet
at the intersection known as the
"gateway to the Glades."
"We're building what will
become a vital medical hub that
will provide the very best care
to everyone who lives in or visits
this growing region," said David
Zechman, Chief Executive Officer
of Glades General Hospital, the 73
bed JCAHO accredited acute care
facility in Belle Glade which pro-
vides quality care to some 3.600
inpatients a year. The Health Care
District, which operates Glades
General, is planning to retire the
Existing hospital, which is more
than 60 years old and transition
staff and more than $3.5 million
'in recently-acquired state-of-the-
art medical technology to the
new hospital when it opens in
late 2009.
The new regional hospital
will have 70 single-occupancy'
patient rooms will capacity for

advanced and pre-family-friendly
with enhanced security, privacy
and ample parking," said Michael

Senior Development Executive.
"There will be a dedicated Emer-
gency Room drop-off, a main en-
trance drop-off and a helipad on
the campus sized for transport of
trauma patients and, if necessary,
regional evacuations. Inside, there
are separate elevators for patients
and visitors, allowing more pri-
vacy and expedited transport."
Plans for the new hospital also
feature an Emergency Room with
16 treatment areas plus three
fast-track exam areas. There will
be two large operating rooms, a
dedicated C-Section room, two
additional delivery and post par-
tum rooms and six private ICU
rooms. The plans feature and en-
larged dining room and accom-
modations have been made for
education, meeting and training
spaces that will serve the hospital
as well as the community.
The new hospital will be
constructed to withstand severe
weather conditions. The build-
ing plans feature a steel structure,
concrete exterior walls and lami-
nated tempered glass windows.
Two emergency generators and
a three-day water supply will be
included to support emergency
operations should the need arise.
The design for the new hospi-
tal has already been lauded in the
national media. The August 2007
issue of Health Executive maga-
zine, a leading industry trade pub-
lication, noted it exemplifies, "the
latest and greatest design intend-
ed to increase patient privacy.
This is the largest capital proj-
ect in the Health Care District's 18
year history, with an estimated
cost of $73 million. The Health
Care District has committed $50
million toward the new hospital.
The Glades Healthcare Founda-
tion is coordinating a capital fund-
raising campaign to complete the
financial support for the project.
Once the initial capital cam-
paign goals are met, the Founda-
tion will remain active to support
the health care needs throughout
the Glades region.
"The goal is to improve the
delivery of quality health care
for the region by ensuring access
to critical health care services,"
said Dr. Stanley Pierce, Chair of
the Health Care District Board of
Commissioners.
"By doing that, we advance
the Health Care District's mission

by Dr. Coleman on May 18, the

Kenneth K. Jackson, the founder and executive director of
Street Beat, Inc., puts his talents on display for the audience
at the Street Beat Summer Showcase by playing his saxo-
phone, with his performance ending with a roaring applause.
What's amazing is that it was a surprise performance that
wasn't expected during the showcase Mr. Jackson wasn't
scheduled to perform at the Dolly Hand Center on the night
of August 3.


During the Street Beat Summer Showcase at the Dolly Hand
Cultural Center in Belle Glade on Friday, August 3, Terrence
Green is holding up Thernisha Jones in a dance performance
of "Unto Thee" by gospel singer J. Moss.

Street
Continued From Page 1
These groups are followed by
Unity and Teen, which features
children who are 11- and 12-years
old and the teenagers, who range
from 13- to 18-years-old, respec-
tively.
Over the summer, the Street
Beat team learned and accom-
plished quite a bit.
Throughout the nine-week
summer program, which began
on June 4 and ended on Aug. 8,
the youth took classes that con-
sisted of dance, step, voice, life
skills and academic drills the
drills were meant to prepare the
participants for the upcoming
school year, which begins on
Aug. 22.
Approximately 120 children
participated in the summer pro-
gram.
Kenneth K. Jackson, the orga-
nization's founder and executive
director, said that in the arts com-
ponent of the program, the bulk
of the instruction came from the
teenagers. He believes that the
youths' extensive involvement
with Street Beat will have a posi-
tive effect on their lives.
"Students channel their cre-
ative and physical abilities toward
meaningful accomplishments,
which cross over into other areas
of their lives such as family, edu-
cation and employment," said
Mr. Jackson. "Street Beat's goal
is to reclaim the city through the
changed lives of its participants.
Students learn not just music and
the arts, they learn life."
With that in mind, the teen-
agers went on an eight-day tour
of Kingston, Jamaica earlier this
summer.
According to Mr. Jackson, the
group's purpose was solidify-
ing and developing Street Beat
- Jamaica, which currently has 40
children in the operation.
While in Jamaica, the 15 teen-
agers who traveled there con-
ducted workshops, practices and
performances for the people.
Also, the group traveled to
a small town called Southside,
which is not far from Kingston,
the capital city of Jamaica. It is de-
.scribed as an extremely impover-
ished, violent town where many
people don't have shoes and oth-
er basic necessities to survive.
Mr. Jackson reflected on his ex-
perience in S6uthside, Jamaica.
"We went to Southside so
we could provide hope to the
children and their families, us-
ing the arts," said Mr. Jackson.
"They were looking forward to us
coming there and spending time
with them. In the end, they were
pleased."
Case in point: A girl from
Southside, who was recently de-


trained, joined Street Beat Jamai-
ca a day after she was released
from prison. Mr. Jackson said that
the girl did not miss a rehearsal
and was active and excited about
taking part in the rehearsals and
performance.
"It made her feel like a child
again," said Mr. Jackson.
The trip was co-sponsored by
City Life Ministries whose leader
is Carrington Morgan, Jodami
Ministries and Air Jamaica, which
provided the group with shirts.
"Many of our kids need to
travel outside of the United States
and have the opportunity to visit
children living in horrible condi-
tions," said Mr. Jackson. "That
way, they will be able to appreci-
ate the many things they have."
On their return to South Bay,
the focus was shifted on prepar-
ing for the Street Beat Summer
Showcase, which was held on Fri-
day, Aug. 3 at the Dolly Hand Cul-
tural Arts Center in Belle Glade.
One person who had an im-
pact on the showcase was Sha-
nique Scott, the artistic director
for Street Beat.
Ms. Scott came up through the
organization when she was 15-
years-old, when Street Beat was in
its first year. During her summer
vacations and breaks throughout
her college years at Florida A&M
University, she continued to work
for the program as a dance artist.
Down the road, Ms. Scott pursued
her master's degree in perform-
ing arts management at Florida
International University, which
in turn, landed her a job with the
Debbie Allen Dance Academy in
Los Angeles.
During the showcase, a va-
riety of dance, step and music
performances were conducted
by the five groups, which was, in
part, inspired by what Ms. Scott
learned at the academy Debbie
Allen is a world-renowned chore-
ographer who is best known for
teaching dance moves to artists
such as Paula Abdul and others.
While Ms. Scott and Mr. Jack-
son were pleased with all of the
performances at the showcase, it
was the Street Beat collaboration
that stood out the most, accord-
ing to Ms. Scott herself.
"I loved the energy that the
kids brought to the performance,"
said Ms. Scott.'"The degree of dif-
ficulty with the steps was very
i. Eati\ e and spontaneous."

other," said the head coach. "If
we do those things, we'll have a
successful season."
In other words, the coach
wants the Gators to become the
best team possible.
With that being said, Coach
Walker believes that he has also
assembled the best assistant
coaches possible to help him
hone the 'family' concept he has
in mind. On and off the field, the
players are expected to practice
discipline, honesty and integrity,
among other traits.
"The coaches are teaching
the players more than football,"
said Coach Walker. "The players
are learning about life."
Because of that, Coach Walk-
er believes that the Gators will
win football games.
There are some key players
that figure to make a significant
contribution to the season. They
include:
Jimbo Arnold, an offensive
guard, is an incoming senior.
Coach Walker is looking for him
to the anchor on offense as he is
considered a player wlho is phys-
ical, athletic and very consistent,
according to the coach.
William Orr, whose posi-
tion is at defensive end, is also
a senior. Coach Walker said he
recorded about 20 sacks last
season and expects himto be
a force to be reckoned with on
defense.
Other expected key contribu-
tors include senior wide receiVer
and defensive back Tony Walk-
er, senior fullback/linebacker


Josh Young, senior defensive
end Travis Atwater, senior wid4
receiver Anthony Norton, who
transferred from Glades Central
High School, junior defensive
tackle Brent Dixon, offensive
guard and defensive tackle Cody
Dionne, who will be a junior
and Mike Robbins, a senior line-
backer.
The Gators 'brotherhood' will
be put to the test ineach of the
following games:

In the end, Coach Walker bel
lives that the season will be de,
termined by the players' desire
for the game and he thinks that
they have that down pat.
"They love to play the game
of: football and they want to
win'," said Co&h W iker;le 'i "

"We did the presentation to
identify the several different gangs
active in the western communi-
ties and severity of those gangs,"


the detective said. "1f I had any-
thing to say to the parents, I must
say 'Let's get back to old-school
parenting.'"
The detective added that par-
ents need to know what's in their
homes and be aware of what
their children are doing and who
their friends are.
"It's time for people to wake


up and see what problems that
these gangs are causing," Det.
Kuschel said. "It's detrimental to
people that are their victims and
the community as a whole."
Participants listened on.

Who will be crying at your

of "The Man in the Mirror", has

activities. They John
also had young Hicksn
children at home
who needed their attention. One
evening, as they reviewed their
time consuming responsibilities,
the.thought came, "Why not pri-
oritize everything we do on the
basis of who will be crying at our
funeral?" The results, they claim,
saved their family. Morley ques-
tioned, "Why should you and
I give ourselves to people who
don't love us at the expense of
those who do?"
I had some initial problems
with the Morley's statements.
Does this mean I should only


From my experience at funer-
als, some are celebrations and
some are tear fests. When my
time comes, I don't want tears, I
want celebration! Let those who
loved me celebrate my life and let
those who might not have liked
me so much celebrate my going.
Let everyone party!
Regardless, the more mean-
ingful remembrances shared at
funerals tend to come from time
the dearly departed spent with
people rather than the time spent
in work or accomplishments. I
have come to realize that who I
am might be more important than
what I do for a living. As Ralph
Waldo Emerson stated, "What
lies behind us and what lies be-
fore us are tiny matters compared
to what.lies within us."
Considering this, I came to the
understanding that when Morley
asked us to consider who would
be crying at our funeral, he was
challenging us to look at our pri-
orities. When program and work
take priority over people, people
often suffer. Powerful thought;


Are we good stewards of our
time? It's a question we might
want to ask ourselves. One study
estimated that the average Ameri-
can would have been exposed to
at least 20,000 hours of television
by the time they reached twenty,
and continues with at least 1,000
hours a year after that. What if
we used just half of those yearly
hours and applied them to doing
something else? That would work
out to over ten work weeks worth
of time .we could use each year
to connect with others or to do
some project. Just imagine how
much we might accomplish!
Our time is as valuable as any
material treasure we might have
and it behooves us to embrace
its preciousness. Someone put it
like this:
To realize the value of one
year: Ask a student who has failed
his final exam.
To realize the value of one
month: Ask a mother who has
given birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of one
week: Ask an editor of a weekly


10 kids to feed.
To realize the value of one
hour: Ask the lovers who are
waiting to meet.
To realize the value of one
minute: Ask a person who has
missed the train, the bus or the
plane.
To realize the value of one sec-
ond: Ask a person who has sur-
vived an accident.
To realize the value of one mil-
lisecond:;Ask the person who has
won a silver medal in the Olym-
pics.
And to all this we might add:
To realize the value of a lifetime:
Let us ask ourselves who will be
crying at our funeral.

Monogamy: Devious and yet destined


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
When I was asked to write
about "monogamy" I reflected
on the roots of marriage: "...and
the two shall be- .
come one flesh
(Genesis 2:24),
going back to -
the oldest parts
of scripture and
human antiquity.
The idea is quot-
ed in Matthew as
well, who adds Samuel S.
... so they are Thomas
no longer two
but one (Chapter 19, v6) and also
cited by Mark Chapter 10v 8). The
earliest of people seemed to have
observed that we are "pre-wired"
to be with one with another.
We seem created to be "one"
as a couple. It is that God made
us to seek another, one other, to
be fulfilling. As I write, I heard of
one of those TV shows dedicated
to people with "problems" dedi-
cating their broadcast to a wom-
an claiming to be in love with two
men.
By the definition and nature of
the show where she is to.appear,
there is an acknowledgement
that there is something unusual
about this relationship. People
who live in structured cortmuni-
ties (e.g. such as kibbutzes) wind
up pairing off with someone spe-
cial to them even when the living
situation is not designed to have
pairing off as a goal. It is also in-
teresting to me that persons who
have been previously married and
are seeking to re-marry, are once
more seeking a monogamous re-
lationship.
They never tell me "I've tried
it once and it's not for me" but


rather "Who's next?" or "Now
I've found Mr./Ms. Right!" and,
as the statistics show, embark on
another potentially disastrous re-
lationship. In societies where po-
lygamy is practiced, there seems
to be fierce competition over who
will become the "favorite" of the
group. I've heard that the Chinese
symbol for "war" in their picto-
graphic-symbol language is "two
women under' one roof" and no
doubt the same could be same
for their male counterparts, too. I
suspect that this may be facetious,
but there just may be an element
of truth in it, too.
What about monogamy?. It
seems that is the intention for
which God has made us. Why,
then, doesn't it work out and
why are there so many divorces?
I would suggest that it has to do
with people attempting to find
monogamy for the wrong rea-
sons. It takes a certain amount of
willingness; of dogged determina-
tion on both parts for two persons
to commit to the idea that there
will be no divorce (one co-work-
er once told me'that he and his
wife had an agreement; the one
who asked for the divorce had to
take the kids!)
In spite of the promises and
vows, society seems to say,
"That's alright, you can get out of
it if you want." There are people
who marry for the wrong reasons
'(e.g. those who conceal signifi-
, cant facts about themselves from
the intended other, those who are
too young-emotionally as well as
chronologically-to get married,
those who have no understanding
or incapable of making the com-
mitment marriage requires, those
who have a prior love or loves
in their lives not resolved; drugs,
alcohol or an unfinished relation-
ship, those who find themselves


in marriages entered into without
free will, among other reasons).
Out of this comes the expectation
that a monogamous relationship
will somehow grow despite the
flaws in establishing it.
Yet, in spite of it all, people still
crave to be married. I maintain
that this is the way God made us
to be. The hard part is having two
people, commit to it despite the
trends in society, despite the com-
monplace attitudes about what is
seen as "normative."
The gift of marriage comes
when it works for a couple and
is fulfilling and, I would suggest,
is a bit of Heaven on Earth. That
we know it exists is proven by
those who keep trying to attain it
even after failures and disappoint-
ments.
To obtain it requires a stark
honesty, a willingness to grow,
a commitment and dedication,
a sense of discipline, a faith in
the other-self-God, among other
things. A couple came to me and
told me they were having trouble,
threatening each other with di-
vorce. I told them to go home and
decide whether they wanted to
stay married, where I would give
them time and do my best to be
of help; or to divorce and I would
help them try to find a suitable
lawyer. They came back and de-
cided to stay married. We got un-
derway with a commitment that
was essential if the relationship
was to continue.
A lot of work was ahead, but
I felt that there was now a pos-
sibility and all would be worth it.
They had something else on their
side, too; "...the two shall become
one..." how we are made by God
and how a special person can
make all of God's intentions and
purposes for us come true.


The


'Book'



report

By Jackie
Miller, minister
First Christian
Church, Clewiston
A man was given the oppor-
tunity to live on a farm rent free.
The man broke the terms of the
agreement and was evicted.
Out on his own, the man
found work to be very hard. He
had avery large family which
became very wicked. All of
them but eight were drowned
in a flood. One of his descen-
dants had a large family which
settled in the Middle-East. They
were taken into slavery but
freed by a series of troublesome
events upon their captors. They
moved back home but had
trouble with their neighbors.
Much of the time these people
were very evil. Some of the fam-
ily was exiled never to be seen
again. The rest were in prison
for 70 years. Many years after
getting out of imprisonment,
one of their young men began
teaching them the right way to
live. They resented Him and
killed Him but he arose again
and established a kingdom that
captured the hearts of people
worldwide.
Twelve good friends of the
young man spread the mes-
sage every where. They also
wrote down in the Book what
the young man taught and
what happened after the young
man went back to his home.
This BOOK is a message
of hope and forgiveness. That
BOOK is available everywhere!
Take some time and read it.
Note: That BOOK is the Bible
which means "book". It is good
for any audience but certain
passages are more mature in
nature.
Read it to be wise! Obey it to
be saved!

TALLAHASSEE Florida
Department of Health (DOH) of-
ficials this summer emphasize
the importance of protection
against mosquito-borne diseases.
Throughout the year, DOH works
with partner agencies, including
the Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission, mosquito
control agencies and state univer-
sities, to monitor for the presence
of illnesses carried by mosqui-
toes.
"During the summer months,
Florida experiences an increase in
its mosquito populations," State
Surgeon General Ana M. Viamon-
te Ros, M.D., M.P.H. said. "Taking
a few simple steps can drastically
reduce the chances'of contracting
a mosquito-borne illness."
Symptoms of West Nile vi-
rus (WNV) infection, St. Louis
Encephalitis (SLE), and Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE) may
include headache, fever, fatigue,
dizziness, weakness and confu-
sion. Physicians should contact
their county health department if
they suspect an individual may h
Help reduce mosquito risk
After months of drought, the
rains have come. Ponds are filling
up. Grass is growing.
But along with positive chang-
es such as green grass and the
reduced threat of brush fire, the
rains bring an increased chance
of another danger mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes breed in standing
water. It doesn't take much to
turn your yard into a haven for the
little blood suckers. Water caught
in a wading pool, birdbath, flower
pot or old tire can be a breeding
ground for mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes carry diseases,
such as encephalitis and West Nile
virus, that can affect both humans
and animals. Even if you plan to
stay indoors when mosquitoes
are most active, outdoor pets and
livestock are at risk.


To reduce the mosquito popu-
lation in your yard:
Remove or turnover anything
that can hold water such as flower
pots and wading pools. f-
SIf you have a birdbath or a
pet's water dish outdoors, change
the water every day.
*If you have a pond or large
water-filled ditch on your proper-
ty, stock it with fish that eat mos-
quito larvae.
SIf you have large watering
troughs for livestock, check with
your veterinarian about additives
that can be used to make this wa-
ter unsuitable for mosquitoes.
*Ask your veterinarian about
mosquito repellants to use on
your pets and livestock.
*Mow grass regularly to re-
duce the habitat for mosquitoes
around your home.
To protect yourself from mos-
quito bites:
*Stay indoors during the peak
mosquito times the hours from
dusk to dawn.
SIf you must go outdoors after
dark, wear a long sleeved shirt
and long pants and use mosquito
repellant.
Don't wear perfume or scent-
ed deodorant as perfumes can at-
tract insects.
*If you aren't afraid of bats, en-
courage these natural predators
that eat mosquitoes by putting up
a bat house. (For more informa-
tion on bat houses go to http://
edis.ifas.ufl.edu/UW007.)
For more information on mos-
quito-borne diseases, see the Cen-
ter for Disease Control Web site at
http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dis-
eases/listmosquitoborne.htm.
ave a mosquito-borne illness.
DOH laboratories provide testing
services for physicians treating
patients with clinical signs of mos-
quito-borne diseases.
DOH continues to advise Flo-
ridians to remain diligent in pro-
tecting themselves from mosqui-
to bites by following the "5 D's,"

plan to travel to camp, it's wise to
start with the right gear.

First things first-
Deciding where to go camping
is a matter of preference. From the
Florida Keys to the Great Smoky
Mountains, there are many places
to camp within easy reach.
Here in South Florida, many
state parks offer variety of camp-
ing arrangements with-varied ac-
tivities for everyone in the family.
Highlands Hammock State
Park in southern Highlands Coun-
ty is no exception. They offer full
facility camping with water and
electric hookups for RV camp-
ing. Picnic areas, restrooms and
showers are also available.
Highlands Hammock Park also
offers a more "primitive" camp
setting for those who want to
get back to nature. You'll have to
drive to showers but ground fire
rings and picnic tables are located
at the sites.
Highlands Hammock State
Park is located on Hammock
Road just off Highway 27 near Se-
bring and is open to visitors year
round. Call (863) 386-6094 to find
out about other camp offerings
are available at the park.

ing facilities offered at other Flor-
ida State Parks, check out www.

What to bring
The most important items on
your camping list will be those
that give the most comfort during
your trip.
Spending money on camp-
ing supplies is directly related to
how much you plan to use them.
Many of the items needed for a 3-
5 day camping excursion will last
many years with proper care and
storage.
General camping supplies in-
clude cookware, some portable
camping furniture including a
folding table, chairs, lanterns and
storage containers.
If you don't have luxury ac-
commodations like an RV, you will
need a tent. Tents have improved
considerably over the years and
there are many varieties and sizes
to choose from. Dome tents are
easy to set up and lightweight to
carry. With the detachable "bon-
net" that many come with, they
are fairly waterproof. Depending
on size, dome tents with enough
room for four are priced from
around $80.
Another type of tent, depend-
ing on your camping needs is a

"peak tent." This type of tent offers
a bit more head room that dome-
style tents do not offer. Many are


equipped with separate rooms
and screenrooms attached. These
tents are moderately priced rang-
ing from $50-$250.
Once you have a roof over your
head, sleeping arrangements are
the next consideration.
Sleeping bags can range from
those made from lightweight
"rip-stop" material with a fleece
lining to bags that will keep the
cold out at temperatures reaching
zero degrees. For colder weather
and higher altitudes, an insulated
sleeping bag will keep campers
cozy on cool nights. Avid camp-
ers may have more than one type
of sleeping bag or bed.
Outdoor centers offer a range
of sleeping bags for kids and
adults.
The price range of sleeping
bags can be anywhere from $15
to more than $100.
Airbeds are becoming very
popular for camping due to their
ease in set up and portability fea- .
tures. Many come with an inflator
pump that runs on batteries or
plugs into a car lighter.
For a really nice "raised" airbed
with a pump, expect to pay about
$125-$130. There are more mod-
erately priced airbeds from about
$25.
Eating and cooking outdoors
is one of the most popular camp-
ing pastimes. Depending on how
long you will be camping, con-
sider how much food to bring for
each person.
Coolers are made to keep
foods cold for about five days
with the proper amounts of ice.
Better quality coolers and ice
chests starting at about $35 will
save money in the long run with
less replenishing of ice.
Bringing water on the trip
is also dependant upon where
you are going. If there is running
water at the campground, you
can lighten the load and bring
less. More backwoods, primitive
camping will call for one gallon
per person per day. That only in-
cludes enough water for drinking.
Extra water will be needed for
cooking.

Facilities
Camping without "facilities"
can be an eye-opening experi-
ence for anyone who has not had
the privilege. Campsites without
bathroom and shower facilities
are referred to as "primitive."
Camping in the Ocala Nation-
al Forest is one of those places
where there are no electrical
hook-ups, no running water and
no place except the lake or pond
to "tidy up."
Fortunately, modern science
has found a way to help campers
take care of business and retain
some modesty.
For seasoned campers, camp
toilets might not be the most im-
portant item to pack for camping
but for many families camping
with children, it is a definite con-
sideration.


Depending on what is avail-
able and permissible at the camp-
grounds, the lack of rest facilities
can be taken care of for less than
$100. A camp shower can be any-
thing from a water-filled heavy
duty plastic bag with a shower
hose connected to it hanging
from a tree branch, to a full-sized
enclosed camp shower 'with a
battery powered fan. The prices
for such "luxuries" can start at $5
to about $70.

Speaking
of cooking
A good camp stove is essential
for a well-planned camp cook-
out. Propane stoves offer easy
start and even temperature cook-
ing for whatever is on the menu.
A one-burner stove is about $30,
while a 3-burner will run about
$100. There are even camp stoves
with ovens built in for toasting
bread or whipping up a small
batch of brownies for under $200.
New camp stoves do not include
the propane tanks in many cases.
Contact the campground that
you will be staying in to find out
what facilities for cooking that
they have available, if any. Some
offer charcoal grills and all that
you will need is the charcoal and
lighter.
If you plan to camp out in the
wilderness or at a primitive camp-
site, don't forget a grate for grill-
ing. Put it over the hot coals to
cook food on.
Don't forget to bring unbreak-
able or paper plates, plenty of
paper towels, trash bags for clean
up, cups, eating and cooking
utensils. These are things that can
be brought from home.
Rather than bring along pots
and pans from home or buying
expensive camping cookware,
purchase an inexpensive set
of cookware to keep with your
camping gear. Wash them up af-
ter the trip and store along with
cooking utensils and plastic wash
basin for next time.

Tools and
accessories
The list of items could go on
and on especially with products
on the market made to make
you feel at home under the stars.
Try to stick with the basics when
shopping for your camping trip;
otherwise, you could spend more
than you set out to.
Basic tools are a must when
going camping at a campground
or out in the woods. A trip to the
hardware store will be a good
place to start. Rope along with
a good camping knife will prove
immeasurably useful in setting up
camp. A good spade shovel will
be needed to dig a pit-for the fire,
clear any roots where the tent will
be set up and also to dig a hole
for a toilet.
A rubber mallet will be helpful
for pounding in tent stakes and a
supply of extra tent stakes will be


even better if you happen to lose
or break one.
A multi-tool is a handy and
inexpensive item to carry on any
trip. A good quality multi-tool with
case is about $20 and has several
tools all-in-one to provide what
you need, when you need it. -
Another item that should go on
the list is a camping axe. Splitting
small sections of wood is much
easier with an axe. They are light-
weight; don't take up much space
and will-make life at camp easier.
A saw for cutting wood .and
brush is another essential item. A
folding "root" sawwill cut through
tough branches and make easy
work of getting the kindling for
the fire. They can also be used
around the house and range in
price from about $10.

Lighting please
Many campgrounds have elec-
tric hookups for RVs and camp-
ers and illuminated walkways
throughout campgrounds.
If you are setting up camp in
the woods, you will soon find that
once it gets dark, it's really dark.
A campfire will help to light up
the night but flashlights are essen-
tial. A good quality, dependable
.flashlight and plenty of batteries
will do the trick for spot lighting.
Every person in the camp should
be equipped with a flashlight or
lantern.
Solar lights will collect energy
.during the day and help to light
up the table during dinner and
well into the night.
There are also rechargeable
lanterns that use either recharge-
able batteries or can be plugged
into a car lighter.
Use of oil burning tiki-torches
at campgrounds is many times
prohibited due to the open
flame.

Pests
Mosquitoes are a normal part
of being outdoors, especially in
South Florida.
Look for "no see-um" screen
when purchasing your tent or
screen room. Citronella coils and
candles are a deterrent to mosqui-
toes and some biting flies. Also,
'bring plenty of mosquito spray
along to ward off flying nuisances
that will make your camping ad-
venture less enjoyable.

Camping with
kids and pets
Bringing the kids on the trip?
Kids love to go camping and there
are endless items geared towards
kids in the camping department.
Tents and sleeping bags with
bright colors and plenty of zippers
provide privacy for kids camping
with the family. Kids dome tents
are very reasonable at around
$35-60. Lanterns and flashlights
are a must and will help keep kids
from getting lost and provide the'
light under the chin for ghost sto-
ries for about $14.


which include:
Drainage Check around your
home to rid the area of standing
water, which is where mosqui-
toes can lay their eggs.
DEET When the potential
exists for exposure to mosqui-
toes, repellents containing DEET
(N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide, or
N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide)
are recommended. Picaridin and
oil of lemon eucalyptus are other
repellent options.
Dress Wear clothing that cov-
ers most of your skin.
Dusk and Dawn Avoid being
outdoors when mosquitoes are
most active.

Tips on Repellent Use
Always read label directions
carefully for the approved usage
before applying a repellent to
skin. Some repellents are not suit-
able for children.
Products with concentrations
of up to 30 percent DEET are gen-
erally recommended. Other po-
tential mosquito repellents, as re-
ported by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) in
April 2005, contain picaridin or
oil of lemon eucalyptus. These
products are generally available
at local pharmacies. Look for ac-
tive ingredients to be listed on the
product label.
Apply insect repellent .to ex-
posed skin, or onto clothing, but
not under clothing.
In protecting children, read
label instructions to be sure the
repellent is age-appropriate. Ac-
cording to the CDC, mosquito
repellents containing oil of lemon
eucalyptus should not be used on
children under the age of 3 years.
DEET is not recommended on
children younger than 2 months
old.
Infants should be kept indoors
or mosquito netting should be
used over carriers when mosqui-
toes are present.
Avoid applying repellents to


the hands of children. Adults
should apply repellent first to their
own hands and then transfer it to
the child's skin and clothing.
If additional protection is nec-
essary, apply a permethrin repel-
lent directly to clothing. Again,
always follow the manufacturer's
directions.

Eliminate mosquito
breeding sites
Elimination of breeding sites is
one of the keys to prevention.
*Clean out leaves, troughs and
gutters.
*Remove old tires or drill holes
in those used in playgrounds to
drain.
nTurn over or remove empty
plastic pots.
*Pick up all beverage contain-
ers and cups.
*Check tarps on boats or other
equipment that may collect wa-
ter.
*Pump out bilges on boats.
*Replace water in birdbaths
and pet or other animal feeding
dishes at least once a week.
*Change water in plant trays,
including hanging plants, at least
once a week.
*Remove vegetation or ob-
structions in drainage ditches that
prevent the flow of water.
Monitoring wild bird deaths
can help officials track the spread
of some mosquito-borne diseas-
es. Anyone who discovers a dead
bird is encouraged to report it via
the Internet. The bird mortality
reporting system is located on the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission's website at:
www.MyFWC.com/bird/. Citi-
zens may also report dead birds
to a county health department or
local FWC office.
For more information on
mosquito borne illnesses, visit
the DOH Web site at www.my-
floridaEH.com, the CDC Web site
www.cdc.gov or contact your lo-
cal county health department.
