'Pools for Schools' offered


Program is the
first of its kind
in the Glades area

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Many be-
lieve that learning to swim is one
of the most invaluable lessons a
person can learn in life.
Kindergarten students at Pio-
neer Park Elementary School be-
gan swimming lessons on Tues-


day at the Pioneer Park Aquatic
Center in Belle Glade.
But on Monday the day be-
fore the kindergarten students
were treated to an orientation
session, which was assembled
by representatives of the Drown-
ing Prevention Coalition of Palm
Beach County and the aquatic
center.
In a presentation by Diane
Hennessy, the coalition's coor-
dinator, kindergarten students
were told how to protect them-
selves from the sun using sun-
screen was one example and


how to properly wear a lifejacket
in the water, among many safety
tips.
The students were also given
a set of rules to follow during
swimming lessons, which in-
cluded refraining from running,
flipping, horse-playing and fight-
ing, among others.
Melissa Garvin, the aquatic
center's facility manager, was
part of the presentation.
"All of the kids were able to
show us how they have to step in
and out of the pool," Ms. Garvin
said. "They were attentive to the


instructions given to them."
Believe it or not, stepping
in and out of the pool properly
can prevent drowning incidents
among individuals, officials said.
According to Ms. Hennessy,
the primary goal of the coalition
is to eliminate drowning in Palm
Beach County. The coalition's
coordinator said that since 1997,
there has been an average of at
least one drowning incident in
the county each year.
Ms. Hennessy added that the
kindergarten students are begin-
ning to learn about water safety

INI/Naji Tobias
On Friday, Sept. 7 at the City of Pahokee Commissioner Park in Pahokee, over 120 kids from the Pahokee Recre-
ational Center came out to enjoy the renaming and dedication ceremony, which honored the late Roy L. Singletary
-- the former Pahokee mayor from 2001 to 2003. Those in attendance were treated to delicious hot dogs, drinks
and snacks.


Elsie Singletary, who is the wife of the late Roy L. Singletary, is standing by Pahokee Vice-Mayor Henry Crawford
as she speaks to the park dedication attendants during the renaming ceremony. "To me, It's quite an honor for my
husband to be honored on this day because I feel he is deserving of It," Ms. Singletary said. "He stood for Integ-
rity, honesty, empowerment, experience, respect and honor for all mankind, especially the citizens of Pahokee."


at a perfect time in their young
lives.
Anna Stewart, the coalition's
manager, said that the swim-
ming program entitled 'Pools
for Schools' is the first of its
kind in the Glades area.
The program's inspiration
came from a swimming program
in Broward County -' entitled
'Swim Central' that offers free

Incident captured
on Publix security
cameras

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WELLINGTON A 20-year-
old Belle Glade man was charged
with strong arm robbery after
being accused of taking a lady's
purse and knocking her to the
ground at a Wellington Publix.
According to a probable cause
affidavit provided, by the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO), deputies were dispatched
to the strong arm robbery that
occurred at the plaza, located at
11950 W Forest Hill Blvd.
The incident took place
Wednesday, Sept. 5 at approxi-
mately 7:30 p.m.
Margaret M. Brown, an 80-
year-old woman from Royal Palm
Beach, had just finished using the
ATM machine at the Publix super-,
market, withdrawing cash. and
placing it in her purse, according
to the statement.
While leaving, Ms. Brown was
approached from behind by a
man who pulled her purse from
her, knocking the woman to the
ground. Ms. Brown suffered inju-
ries to her arm and shoulder, ac-
cording to the affidavit.
The robber then fled on foot,
according to authorities
The entire incident was caught
on Publix security cameras.
As a man emerged from a
parking lot- sweating and breath-
ing heavily deputies approached
him and asked where he was
coming from, the statement said.
Looking around in a nervous
manner, deputies determined
that the 20-year-man looked sus-
picious. Deputies found numer-
ous items in his right pocket, ac-
cording to the affidavit.
Fearing that the man could
have a weapon, the items were
removed. Items found turned
out to be sharp keys, pens and a

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee

f











Low water levels allow SFWMD to clean
Boats, motors, poles :~R Taylor Creek navigation lock that w s a
.and debri, ,.emo it may never be removed. These
and debris, removed items were marked with white
,' W PVC poles and red flags to alert \Community Links. Individual Voices.


or marKea

At the dry end of the Pearce Ca-
nal inside Lake Okeechobee near
Buckhead Ridge in Glades County,
according to South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD),
a number of poles stood sentry
over the otherwise bare lake bot-
tom waiting for water to return
to the enormous lake. At normal
lake levels, the tops of these poles
are just barely visible above the
water in this popular fishing spot.
During high water, they cannot be
seen at all.
The poles stood until con-
tractors hired by SFWMD, using
heavy-duty chain saws last week
removed them at the lake bot-
tom, preventing the poles from
becoming an unseen hazard to
boaters who will return to fish the
area again once the water comes
back.
Thanks to the efforts of a large
number of individuals includ-
ing concerned citizens, county
employees and commission-
ers, agency staff and interested
groups, a list and map of poten-
tial hazards stretching from Buck-

head Ridge to Taylor Creek and
the mouth of the Kissimmee River
was developed.
Workers spent many hours in
Lake Okeechobee during the past
month marking potential naviga-
tional hazards or removing those
exposed as the lake's waters
receded in the current record-
breaking drought. Staff from the
Okeechobee Field Station have
marked or removed everything


from abandoned boats and boat
motors to old chairs, remains of
heavy equipment, pipes, poles,
cables and an odd assortment
of other debris uncovered by the
lake's record low levels.
Some debris, such as a huge
auger that local legend says was
broken off during the construc-
tion of the Herbert Hoover Dike,
is so heavy and so firmly rooted
into the lake's bottom near the


boaters of the potential hazards.
Other, more natural, features
of the lake that will remain have
not been marked. Many places
within the lake bottom are natu-
rally rocky. Local boaters and
businesses know the areas well
and do their best to warn visitors
where they should be wary. An
especially large rock field lurks
just off the lakeside approach af-
ter leaving the navigation lock at
Henry Creek and another is just
past the mouth of the Kissimmee
River.
Even at normal levels, Lake
Okeechobee is a shallow lake,
with an average depth of only nine
feet. Wind whipping across the
vast expanse of water can cause
large waves on the lake, which
can go from calm to treacherous
very quickly. Boaters are always
urged to leave a navigation plan
with someone when venturing
out on the lake. The plan should
include an estimated time of re-
turn and a general idea of the
boater's destination. Navigation
on Lake Okeechobee should be
safer due to these low lake level
hazard removal efforts.


Lake Okeechobee water levels remain low


Regional water
shortages predicted
to continue in 2008

WEST PALM BEACH The
water level in Lake Okeechobee
was 9.58 feet above sea level on
Sept. 10, 0.86 feet (a little over
10 inches) below the previous
historic low for this date of 10.44
feet above sea level, recorded on
Sept.10, 1956. According to water
managers at the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
SWMD), the growing disparity
between current lake level read-
ings and previous historic lows
suggests that South Florida may
experience back-to-back water
shortage years for the first time
since the early 1980s.
Lake Okeechobee water levels
have set new record daily lows
since early June, culminating in
an all-time record low of 8.82 feet
above sea level on July 3, 2007. A
\'ear ago today, the lake's uatier
levelwas 13.26 feet atLove stea lev-
el, 3.68 feet higher than this morn-
ing's reading; leading up to one of
the most severe water shortages
in South Florida history.
Despite near average rainfall


for June and July, August 2007
was the driest August since 1987
and ranks as the fourth driest
on record since 1932, yielding
District-wide rainfall of only 4.67
inches, or 62 percent of the his-
torical average for the month. At
only 30 inches, or 79 percent of
the historical average through
Friday, September 7, year-to-date
average rainfall also remains well
below normal for the 16-county
region. Historically low water lev-
els persist in central and northern
portions of the District, as rainfall
patterns have continued to favor
southeastern residential areas.
"Without the sort of rainfall
only associated with slow-moving
tropical depressions, water levels
in Lake Okeechobee are likely to
remain below previous record
lows through at least September,"
said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "Because the
lake is such a reliable indicator of
the regional water supply, these
readings 'suggest South Florida
could be :headed'for another se
vere water shortage year. With
no guarantees of above average
rainfall to replenish the system,
we must begin to contemplate
and prepare for another regional


water shortage during the next
dry season."
The largest water body in
South Florida's water manage-
ment system, Lake Okeechobee
is a primary backup water supply
to five million South Floridians
and provides water for irrigation
across more than 500,000 acres
of farmland south of the lake. By
stirring up sediments and concen-
trating harmful nutrients, back to
back active hurricane seasons
followed by an extended water
shortage have affected both the
quantity and quality of water in
the lake over the past three years.
Water managers took advantage
of the drought this year by remov-
ing nearly two million cubic yards
of exposed phosphorus-laden
muck from the lake. The muck
removal will help restore habitat
and improve future water quality
by reducing phosphorus levels in
the lake, which last year averaged
200 parts per billion.
The official Lake Okeechobee
water ei\'anIonI is reported each
day by tie' U.S. Army Corps 'of
Engineers as the average of four
state-of-the-art monitoring sta-
tions located within the lake ba-
sin. The South Florida dry season


usually begins in November and
continues through May, with lake
levels normally rising during the
wet season and falling during the
dry season.
Water restrictions
still in effect
Extreme water shortage con-
ditions persist in the Everglades
Agricultural Area and in portions
of Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee,
Martin and western Palm Beach
counties, which remain in full
Phase Ill water restrictions. Due to
below average rainfall and subse-
quent low groundwater levels in
the District's Lower West Coast,
full Phase II restrictions remain in
place for Lee and portions of Col-
lier, Hendry,.Glades and Charlotte
counties. Landscape irrigation in
St. Lucie, Martin, eastern Palm
Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade
and Monroe counties remains
limited to two days per week in
most areas.. .. ... : ,
, The, SFWMD continues to en-
courage both residential and ag-
ricultural water users throughout
the District to voluntarily reduce
water consumption and conserve
water.


Water Reuse Week celebrated in Palm Beach


WEST PALM BEACH In col-
laboration with Florida Governor
Charlie Crist, the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
WMD) proclaimed Sept. 9-15 Wa-
ter Reuse Week in South Florida.
Water reuse is an key part of
the District's water conservation
program and a vital alternative
source of water for the State of
Florida., Currently, Florida leads
the nation by reusing 660 mil-
lion gallons of reclaimed water
each day to conserve freshwater
supplies and replenish our rivers,
streams, lakes and aquifers, ac-
cording to the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection.
To assist entities in implement-
ing water reuse, the District and
the State of Florida invested $24.6
million over the past two 'years
to fund 71 water reuse projects
through the District's Alternative

Water Supply Funding Program.
These projects added 93 million
gallons per day of reclaimed wa-
ter capacity to the regional supply.
Since the program's inception in
2005, 135 alternative water sup-
ply projects totaling $83 million
have been funded through this
grant program.
Water reuse is the beneficial
use of highly treated domestic
wastewater, also known as re-
claimed water. Reclaimed water
can be used in many ways, in-
cluding irrigation of yards, agri-
culture, golf courses and other
green space; ground water re-
charge; environmental enhance-
ment; and industrial uses, such as
cooling water and process water:
Reuse conserves water by reduc-
ing reliance on ground water,
surface water and potable water.

County launches Rx plan using discount cards


PALM BEACH -- Palm Beach
County recently launched a dis-
count card program to help con-
sumers cope with the high price
of prescription drugs. Palm Beach
County Commissioner Mary Mc-
Carty introduced the program at
a press conference in downtown
West Palm Beach. The county is
making free prescription drug dis-
count cards available under a pro-
gram sponsored by the National
Association of Counties (NACo)
that offers average savings of 20
percent off the retail price of com-
monly prescribed drugs.
The cards may be used by all
county residents, regardless of


age, income or existing health
coverage and are accepted at
almost 300 Palm Beach County
pharmacies. A national network
of more than 59,000 participating
retail pharmacies also will honor
the NACo prescription discount
card.
"Palm Beach County is proud
to be one of the counties nation-
wide participating with NACo."
said Commissioner Mary McCarty.
"The NACo prescription discount
card offers significant savings for
the uninsured and underinsured
residents of our county, and even
those fortunate to have prescrip-


tion coverage can use the card to
save money on drugs that are not
covered by their health plan. Resi-
dents do not have to be Medicare
beneficiaries to be eligible for this
program."
Best of all, there is no cost to
county taxpayers for NACo and
Palm Beach County to make
these money saving cards avail-
able to our residents.
Cards will be available at vari-
ous locations across the County.
County residents can visit www.
caremark.com/naco for assis-
tance with the program. More
information can also be found
by clicking on the Prescription


Card tab located at www. pbcgov.
com.
"Using the NACo prescription
discount card is easy," said Com-
missioner Addie .Greene, Chair-
person of the Board of County
Commissioners. "Simply present
it at a participating pharmacy.
There is no enrollment form, no
membership fee and no restric-
tions or limits on frequency of
use. Cardholders and their family
members may use the card any
time their prescriptions are not
covered by insurance."
The discount card program is
administered by Caremark Rx,
Inc.


Calendar


By Gene Joyner
Extension Agent
Palm Beach County
Palms are an important com-
ponent of many tropical land-
scapes and as you drive around
your neighborhood, most homes
have at least one or more palms.
Here in Florida we're fortunate to
have hundreds of types of palms
to choose from and many large
cities like palms well enough they
line their streets and include them
in large numbers in their parks
and governmental building cen-
ters.
Palms grow well in a wide vari-
ety of soils and you can have very
small palms that rarely get over 10
to 15 feet, medium size palms that
can grow as high as 30 or 40 feet
or tall growing palms that can get
in excess of 80 or 90 feet. Even if
you're in areas along the beaches,
many palms withstand the wind
and salt found in those locations.
Palms do require a regular
maintenance program though, to
stay aesthetically attractive in the
landscape. The most important
is to fertilize with a good quality
palm fertilizer, which can be pur-
chased at your favorite retail gar-
den center or landscape company
that sells fertilizer products.
For small palms, you can fertil-
ize as often as every other month.
For larger well established palms
in the landscape, two or three
Times a year is probably the aver-
age, although three times a year
would be the better schedule.
When applying palm fertilizers,
make sure you put out the proper
amount and that it's spread evenly
as far as the fronds extend on the
palm to insure that as much of
the root system comes in contact
with the fertilizer as possible.
If you have palms that develop
nutritional deficiencies and they
will let you know it quickly, that
situation cannot be corrected in
a week or two. The way palms
grow it takes many months, in
some cases, for them to get back
to a normal condition following
months or years of neglect. By
fertilizing regularly, you can hope-
fully keep the palm in perfect con-
dition all the time.
During the summer months
with the extra rainfall, nutrients
leach out quickly so some people
do fertilize a little bit more regu-
larly during the summer as op-
posed to the late fall and winter
months when palms are more
dormant.
Watch palms this time of year,
too, for diseases brought on by


palm hearts or bud areas being
kept constantly moist by frequent
rains. If you notice discoloration
in the bud of the palm or fronds
that develop brown spotting or
other typical fungus conditions,
have a pest control company
treat the palms so you don't end
up with major damage.
Insects on palms during the
summer are not a super big prob-
lem because many of the more
common insects are very tiny and
heavy rains tend to keep many of
them washed off the palms. This
doesn't mean you won't find a
few leaf eating caterpillars or sap
sucking scale insects, but usually
they are a minor problem during
the summer growing season.
Many people during the sum-
mer months complain about their
palms having yellowed or discol-
ored older fronds and many times
this can be a lack of magnesium.
Rainfall can leach out magnesium
easily in the soil and big palms that
have many fronds like date palms
require large amounts of magne-
sium in their diet. You can buy a
magnesium supplement at large
retail garden centers and apply
this in addition to the palm food
to insure that your palms have
enough magnesium to keep all
their fronds a rich, green color.
I If you're interested in acquiring
new palms, many large landscape
nurseries in our county have
palms of all types, sizes and price
ranges. If you really want rare or
unusual palms or want to know
more about these types of palms,
attend one of the monthly meet-
ings of the Palm Beach Palm and
CycadSociety which meets on the
first Wednesday of each month at
7:30 at the Mounts Building Audi-
torium, 531 North Military Trail in
West Palm Beach.
They feature interesting speak-
ers, they often have palm raffles
at their meetings and many club
members are commercial nurs-
erymen that grow large numbers
of palms so you certainly can get
information about palms at their
meetings.
The Palm Beach County Ex-
tension office also has a number
of, publications, which are free
on palms and these can be ob-
tained during normal business
hours from their office. You can
call the Extension Service, too,
to get questions about palm care
answered anytime.. Please dial
233-1750 in the north and central
county area or 276-1260 in the
south county area.

ter Foundation honored their ma-
jor contributors on Wednesday,
Aug. 29, during a recognition lun-
cheon held at the Clewiston Inn.

new owners of the Clewiston Inn,
sponsored the entire event and
provided a fabulous 'surf and turf'
feast to more than 50 guests.

The Elder Helpline working for Seniors


FT. MYERS The Area Agency
on Aging (AAA) Advisory Council
will holding a Town Hall meet-
ing for residents of Heridry and
Glades counties at the First United
Methodist Church, 300 Avenue L
SW in Moore Haven to raise com-
munity awareness of the Elder
Helpline.
The meeting, to be held on
Oct. 11, at 8:30 a.m., will be the
first in a series designed to edu-
cate the public in the ways the El-
der Helpline provides information
to seniors, their caregivers, and
concerned friends or neighbors
while connecting them with the
appropriate services for seniors
in Southwest Florida. Questions
about prescription drug plans,
concerns with elder abuse, need
for in-home services such as meals
or transportation issues can be ad-
dressed by the Elder Helpline.
"The Elder Helpline has been
serving our communities for
many years, and has recently
undergone an expansion by add-
ing new staff and call lines," says
Leigh Schield, Executive Direc-
tor of the Area Agency on Aging
(AAA) of Southwest Florida.


"During the prescription drug
enrollment frenzy last year we re-
alized that we needed to expand
and be prepared for the increas-
ing needs of the communities
we serve. Over 10 percent of the
500,000 seniors in our service area
are over 85 and there's a probabil-
ity that 60,000 seniors will need
assistance related to Alzheimer's
disease in the Coming years," Ms.
Schield added.
The counties served by the
AAA include Lee, Collier, Hendry,
Glades, Charlotte, DeSoto and
Sarasota.
Ms. Schield tells the story of
a man the Elder Helpline has
recently assisted. He called the
helpline for his frail mother in Ft,
Myers who had lost her drivers li-
cense due to poor vision. During
the brief conversation with the
certified information and refer-
ral specialist, the man explained
that he lived in another state and
his mother needs assistance with
transportation to medical appoint-
ments, church and shopping. She
also needed help with meal prep-
aration, and light housekeeping.


The care specialist provided the
man with information regarding
the role of the AAA and arranged
a referral for his mother to Senior
Friendship Center for the appro-
priate services.
In follow up calls with the
man, his mother, and the ser-
vice provider, the care special-
ist learned that this woman also
needed some home modifica-
tions to keep her safe and subse-
quently linked with another part-
ner agency that could assist her.
With the services provided by the
helpline and its partner agencies,
the woman was able to remain
in her home which, Ms. Schield
says, is one of the major goals of
the AAA.
The AAA manages the Elder
Helpline and, according to Schield,
"works with any agency, com-
pany, organization or group that
provides quality services to the
aging population in our commu-
nities. We are constantly updating
our database in order to have the
most current service information
available to our callers."
To reach the Elder Helpline


call 1-866-413-5337 or (239) 332-
3019.
A second town hall meeting
to discuss the Elder Helpline with
residents of Lee County will be
held in Ft. Myers at Lee Memorial
Hospital Auditorium, Nov. 16..

Health issues



are in the news


AP photo/University of Florida/IFAS/Josh Wickham
Food safety expert Keith Schneider scrutinizes day-old su-
shi rolls in his office at UF's main campus in Gainesville.
Mr. Schneider says consumers who buy ready-to-eat sushi
from supermarkets should throw away any leftovers after 24
hours, due to spoilage concerns. Take-out and doggie bags
from sushi restaurants should be consumed the day they're
purchased, he said.


Sushi to go? Don't



let it languish


By Tom Nordlie
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE -- Grabbing a
box of ready-to-eat sushi from the
grocery store? Say sayonara to any
leftovers still in the fridge after 24
hours, a University of Florida food
safety expert says.
"Any signs of spoilage are bad,
but just because it looks good
doesn't mean it's safe," said Keith
Schneider, an associate professor
of food science with UF's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences.
Take-out and doggie bags from
sushi restaurants should be eaten
when you get home or thrown
away, he said.
That's because foods can inter-
act when they're placed together.
Inside a sushi roll, bacteria some-
times find ideal conditions in the
spaces where moist ingredients
come in contact with dry ones
or where foods with different pH
meet. The result: faster spoilage.
"Sushi is meant to be con-
sumed the day you buy it," said
Mr. Schneider, who co-authored
a document on safe sushi prepa-
-- ration .in retail, operations with
UF seafood expert Steve Otwell.
"Each food item has a different
spoilage rate so it's difficult to put
a shelf life on (sushi)."
Mr. Schneider says sushi hasn't
been associated with many re-
ports of foodborne illness, but he
nonetheless advocates a better-
safe-than-sorry approach.
The term "sushi" covers many
foods made with vinegar-treated
rice and raw or cooked items
such as meat, seafood and veg-
etables. Probably the best-known
sushi varieties are makizushi, rolls
wrapped in seaweed and some-
times coated with rice; and nigiri-
zushi, rice mounds topped with a
slice of fish or other seafood.
Raw fish might seem the big-
gest food-safety hazard in sushi,
but Mr. Schneider says that's not
the case -- t's often frozen and
thawed before use, to kill para-
sites.
Actually, rice is more likely to
cause problems, he said. A bac-
terium called Bacillus cereus can
grow in cooked rice if it's not
prepared and handled properly.
That's one reason vinegar is es-
sential to good sushi rice-it pro-
vides acidity that discourages the
bacterium.
Mr. Schneider 'cautions con-
sumers who buy ready-to-eat
sushi to minimize the chance it
will warm up. Take it from the


cooler just before purchase, bring
it home quickly and refrigerate it
immediately unless you plan to
eat it right away.
"It's not one of those things
you want to leave on the coun-
ter," he said.
Packaged sushi sold in super-
markets is often made by spe-
cialty companies via franchises
within the stores. The biggest
such company in North America
is Advanced Fresh Concepts, or
AFC, based in Rancho Domin-
guez, Calif., which sells Southern
Tsunami brand sushi in 130 su-
permarket chains, according to
the company's Web site.
Jeff Seiler, AFC's compliance
director, agrees with Schneider's
24-hour recommendation and
suggests consumers eat ready-to-
eat sushi as soon as they get home
to ensure the best,flavor.
Though sushi is often associ-
ated with pricey restaurants, in
the past decade inexpensive sushi
has become more available and
popular in the United States, said
Sasha Issenberg, a Philadelphia-
based journalist who authored
"The Sushi Economy: Globaliza-
tion and the Making of a Modern
Delicacy," published in May.
"Wal-Mart opened in Piano,
Texas, with a sushi bar in it," he
said. "I think people see it as sort
of a clean, healthy alternative to
other fast foods at the same level
of convenience."
Statistics on ready-to-eat sushi
sales are sparse, but Issenberg re-
ported in his book that one survey
indicated 30 million U.S. adults
eat sushi regularly.
And though the idea of grocery
shoppers picking up packaged su-
shi along with dog food and dish
soap may rankle some aficiona-
dos, Mr. Issenberg says from a
historical perspective, this trend is
simply a return to sushi's roots.
In the late 19th century, sushi
was a low-cost snack sold by To-
kyo street vendors, he said. Only
later did this proto-fast food be-
come glamorous and expensive.
The first U.S. sushi bar opened in
Los Angeles' Little Tokyo in 1964,
an upscale establishment fre-
quented by Japanese-American
businessmen.
"In Japan, (sushi's) origins are
far closer to the experience of go-
ing to a supermarket and getting
takeout and bringing it home,
than actually sitting down in a
sushi bar and spending $100 on
your dinner and eating it there,"
he said.


Health issues are often in the
news.
In the news this week, a new
study found children contract
germs on the playground from
playground equipment and from
contact with other children. I
have to wonder why anyone had
to conduct a study to find that
out. The researchers suggested
parents require their children to
wash their hands after playing on
a public playground big surprise
- and to always wash their hands
before eating. (For this they con-
duct a study?)
Also in the news this week,
a frightening statistic for parents
whose children have been begg
ing them for shoes with embed-
ded skates. More than one-third
of children who use such shoes
injure themselves while learning
to use them. Most common in-
juries are to the wrist and elbow.
So if your kids do have the skater
shoes, make sure you supervise
them. And you might want to in-
sist they wear safety guards. Now
I have to wonder if someone will
want to do a study on children
who wear skate shoes on a pub-
lic playground.
A serious item in the news
this week is the increasing prob-
lem of diabetes. The number of
Americans suffering from diabe-
tes is increasing. While one risk
of diabetes is due to heredity, the
increase is attributed to the Amer-
ican lifestyle of poor diet and not
enough exercise. More than one-
third Americans are overweight,
which is one of the risk factors for
diabetes. If your family has a his-
tory of diabetes, it's a good idea
to have regular screenings. Dia-
betes can do permanent damage
to your body before you notice
any signs of the disease.
Good news for consumers
might come from a proposal
from the Food and Drug Admin-
istration to change food labeling
to make it easier for shoppers
to make better food choices. In-
stead of trying to read the fine
print on the back of the label,
shoppers may learn to scan nutri-
tion symbols. The FDA is holding
hearings on labeling proposals
this week, but don't expect to see
any changes at the supermarket
soon. Any change would take
several years to implement.
Fat babies and toddlers are
often viewed as "healthy," but
that may not be the case, ac-
cording a new study detailed in
the September issue of "Pediat-
rics" magazine. According to the
study, pudgy toddlers are more
likely to suffer from anemia that
their slimmer counterparts. The
reason, researchers found, is that
these babies are given too much
juice or cow's milk to drink in
their bottles. They fill up on juice
and milk when they should be
starting to eat more solid foods,
including those high in iron such
as meat, beans and fortified
breads.
The study found that children
in daycare were less likely to
be anemic than those who did
not attend daycare. Research-
ers speculated that the daycare
managers pay more attention to
nutritional balance when plan-
ning meals. They also found that
Hispanic toddlers were twice
as likely as non-Hispanics to be
anemic. Anemic toddlers may
appear healthy and seem to have
plenty of energy. However, iron-
deficiency in children could con-
tribute to other problems later in
life. Parents should discuss their


Healthier 9
Life &

with Katrina Elsken
toddler's diet with the child's pe-
diatrician, and be limit fruit juice
and whole milk according to the
pediatrician's recommendations.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise pro-
gram, consult your doctor.
This is especially important
if you are on any prescription
medications. Some drugs in-
teract badly with foods that
would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

Bracken fern, common in Florida, is toxic to cattle, sheep,
goats and horses.


Submitted photo/Plant UFL-IFAS
Dog fennel is another invasive plant. Although not toxic, it will
take the place of grass, leaving less for your livestock to eat.


Some plants are harmful

Tropical soda apple is an

mals can spread seeds that
are in their digestive tracts if
they eat the fruit of the plant.


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Two potential problems with
"gentlemen farmers" and back-
yard livestock come to mind:
weeds in pasture that are toxic
to some animals and landscape
plants that they will joyfully eat,
some that are toxic. Either of
these can be bad.
In Florida, there are a number
of toxic weeds. "Poisonous plants
(e.g., Crotalaria, black nightshade,
spiny pigweed, lantana, etc.) are
commonly found throughout
Florida. Animals do not usually
choose to graze most poisonous
plants when forage is abundant;
however, when quality forage is


Backyard
Barnyard
limited due to poor growing con-
ditions or overstocking they may
graze these plants,".according to
the University of Florida Institute
of Plant and Agricultural Sciences
(UFIFAS).
Ideally, of course, you have re-
moved weeds from your pasture
and mowed or "weed-eatered"
the few troublesome plants that
remain before they go to seed.
But let's just say you just fenced
a new area. What to look for
depends on the breed that will
graze it. Don't forget, weeds cut


down on the amount of grass to
eat. Right now Dog fennel seems
to be growing, well, like a weed.
More weeds equalless grass.
Horses in particular will eat
what's bad for them, particularly
if they are hungry. They will not
eat grass grown up in the manure
you forgot to remove. Around
here, tropical soda apple and
bracken fern are two bad weeds
for horses. Both are easy to spot
when you know what to look for.
Bracken fern is also toxic to
cattle, sheep and goats.

Pioneer Park welcomes new staff members


Pioneer Park Elementary
School welcomes seven new staff
members this school year. They
have employed three new Lunch-
room Aides, Jackie Thomas, Regi-
na Thompson and Rosa Desinord.
These new staff members will be
responsible for monitoring the
cafeteria during the two-hour
lunch blocks. Mrs. Nelson feels
that all three are an asset to the
school.
New Physical Education
Teacher, Renee Atkins transferred


Tejada
Continued From Page 1
Our programs include the Youth
Entrepreneur Success operation,
Neighbors Helping Neighbors
and Solid Waster Authority, which
donates paint to the community
for beautification purposes.
Question: What is the best
moment that you have had in
your life so far? Why?
Mr. Tejada: I would have to
say, it was when I graduated from
college last year because I had a
lot of people doubting that I was
_ going to actually get to that point.
My classmates from high school
didn't think that I would make it
through college because of my
early struggles in life. But hey, I
did it!
Question: Who do you con-
sider your biggest inspiration in
your life?
Mr. Tejada: My parents be-


from Lake Shore Middle School
and has become an invaluable
addition to the staff.
Ms. Martinez is the new Music
teacher. She has taught in the past
at Seminole Ridge Community
High School and holds a Bachelor
Degree in Music Arts. She says she
is very excited to be at Pioneer
Park and has some great things
planned for the students.
Harva Miller-Tate has joined
the staff also as one of their kin-
dergarten teachers. Mrs. Miller-


cause they have worked hard to
help me by steering me down the
right path in life.
Question: What are three
things that irk you the most?
Mr. Tejada: The three things
that irk me the most are when I
make dumb mistakes, when my
car breaks down or gets robbed
because I am not mechanically
inclined like other members of
my family -- and bad drivers.
Question: What do you con-
sider the three biggest develop-
ments that have had a positive
impact on the Glades area? What
do you think will be the next big
thing to hit the region?
Mr. 'Tejada: I would say
the Everglades Restoration, the
Palm Beach Community College
programs and the new regional
hospital. The next big thing for
this area, I think, will be a new
program at the EDGE Center that
will begin in January. We will be
giving high school graduates the


Tate says that she is looking for-
ward to teaching the children and
working in a very friendly atmo-
sphere at Pioneer Park Elemen-
tary School.
Eureaka Baity came to the
school as an ESE teacher. She is
looking forward to her position
there at the school.
Cathy Jackson is a perma-
nent substitute at Pioneer Park.
She came to Pioneer Park from
Glades Central Community High
School. She has proven already to
be a wonderful team player and


opportunity to receive a laptop
computer and the knowledge
they need to manage their money
and start a technology business.
Question: Where do you see
yourself three years from now?
Mr. Tejada: As the EDGE
Center grows and expands, I ex-
pect to be a major factor in the
development of the Glades as a
technical business counselor. I,
am currently studying online to
increase my skill level to meet
this need.
Question: What are your fa-
vorite hobbies? Why?
Mr. Tejada: I like walking two
miles a day, coin collecting, cook-
ing, reading and volunteering.
Question: Do you remember
a quote or saying told to you as
a child that has shaped up you
life? If so, how could you use that
quote to influence someone else
in a positive way?
Mr. Tejada: "Work smarter,
not harder." This advice was


hard worker for the school.
Last but not least, Pioneer
Park welcomes to their staff,
Edna Stephens. Ms. Stephens is
one of four fifth grade teachers.
Ms. Stephens just recently retired
from the school district this past
year. She then found that retire-
ment was not for her and chose
Pioneer Park as the school that
would bring her back to the
world of teaching. "You go!" Ms.
Stephens!
Welcome to all Pioneer Park's
new staff members!


given to me by my parents and
teachers, which.1 have used to
achieve my goals in life.
Question: Are there any mo-
ments in your life that you wish
you could take back? If so, what
would you have done differently?
Mr. Tejada: Not really be-
cause if we don't make mistakes
in life, we never learn how to deal
with reality.
Question: If there were any
characteristics of yourself that
you could change, what would
it be?
Mr. Tejada: I like just being
me and who I am.
Question: What advice do
you have for the young'pe6ple' in
the Glades area?
Mr. Tejada: Open your minds
to let the dreams in and make
your dreams become reality by
seeking the help that you need
from professionals like the ones
at the EDGE Center.

"We're hoping to get to the
magnitude in which the swim-
ming program would have a
snowball effect throughout the
Glades area," Ms. Stewart said.
According to Ms. Stewart, be-
tween 1997 and 2006, the county
has experienced 522 drowning
incidents. Of that amount, 22
percent of those accidents took
place in the swimming pool, fol-
lowed by 20 percent occurring
when motor vehicles ended up
being submerged in canals.
Ms. Stewart added that from
the county's medical examiner
office, it was found that about
nine percent of all drowning inci-

dents occur in the Glades area.
According to Geraldine Russell,
one of the kindergarten teachers
from Pioneer Park Elementary
School, she vividly remembers a
five-year-old drowning in a canal
that is adjacent from the aquatic
center in Belle Glade.
Ms. Russell, who is still sad-
dened by the incident, shared her
thoughts about the fledgling pro-
gram offered at the elementary
school.
"The Pools for Schools Pro-
gram is vitally important for child
safety," Ms. Russell said, "The
students will be able to protect
themselves as children and it will
carry over into their adult lives.''

The Cowboys win in Hendry County championship


LaBelle bests
Clewiston 28-0
In the annual rivalry for the
bragging rights for Hendry Coun-
ty football, the LaBelle Cowboys
wasted little time Friday night in
verifying the outcome. The Cow-
boys posted four quick first quar-
ter touchdowns and then coasted
in a 28-0 plastering of.the Tigers.
The Tigers were playing without
two starters, Tight End/Defensive
End Delvin Hughes and Flanker
John Runkles who sat out the
contest for disciplinary. Both play-
ers had missed the Tiger practice
session on Labor Day.
Clewiston started the game as
cold and made a string of mis-
takes during the first 12 minutes
of play. The Cowboys were op-
portunistic and took advantage of
every Tiger miscue in that open-
ing period. After kicking off and
holding Clewiston, the Cowboys
took possession near midfield.
On the third snap, Tailback Ga-
briel Puente. found a gaping hole
in the line and then veered to the
end zone corner untouched for a
40 yard score.
Clewiston tried to get their
offense started, but Cowboy de-
fender Freddy Robbins quickly
picked off an Isandro Marquez
pass and returned it to the Tiger
11 yard line. Two plays later, Full-
back Brandon Villerral ran a coun-
ter off the left side for the score.
The Tiger offense, awestruck by
this time, lost the ball again on
the very first play of their next
possession. Quarterback Isandro
Marquez was hit in the backfield
and lost the ball with Cowboy
Defensive Tackle Blake Barnes
pouncing on the ball at the Tiger
19. The Cowboys scored again


on their fifth play with Wingback
Caleb Jordan carried the ball for
a 3 yard touchdown with 3:49 re-
maining in the first quarter.
Then, LaBelle got their final
score just 14 seconds later when
Cornerback Dale Thompson
snared another errant Marquez
pass and returned it 27 yards.
Cowboy Kicker Rey Hernandez
converted all four extra points.
After the first period scoring
binge, the Tiger defense held the
Cowboys pretty much in check
the remainder of the night. By the
second half, the Tiger defenders
were much more aggressive and
made some nice tackles. Line-
backer Alex Rubio led the defense
with 9 solo tackles, an assist and
two sacks. Defensive End Willie
Armstrong also made some solid
hits ending up with eight tackles
and two assists. Cornerback Zack
Waddell had three solo tackles,
two in the open field, and three
assists.
Offensively, Clewiston just
couldn't find continuity. They did
manage a couple of nice drives
in the second half, but penalties
eventually stifled their effort. On
the evening they did manage 170
yards rushing on 25 carries, an
impressive 6.8 yards per attempt.
But on the scoreboard, where it
really mattered, the Tigers had
nothing to show for the night.
Tailback Darris Hughes finished
with 87 yards on 13 attempts and
Colin Ricketts chipped in 57 yards
on 7 tries.
Puente led all rushers for the
night garnering 168 yards on 20
carries.. The rivalry between the
schools goes back for 30 games
and this was only the fourth vic-
tory for the Cowboys in the se-
ries. But, this one was extra sweet
for the Cowboys and Coach Ron

Deandre Holley shows his versatility in Raiders win


Blue Devils,
Gators come out
on top again

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WELLINGTON Glades Cen-
tral senior all-purpose player De-
andre Holley displayed his well-
known versatility, playing a big
role in the Raiders' 42-22 victory
against the Palm Beach Central
Broncos last Friday night.
Holley had a hand in four of
Glades Central's six touchdowns,
passing and catching for one
touchdown each and rushing for
two touchdowns of his own.
Earlier in the game, however,
in the first quarter, the Raiders
found themselves quickly falling
behind the Broncos. Less than
two minutes into the game, Palm
Beach Central junior quarterback
Travis Simmons led an 80-yard
opening drive, which culminated
in a 36-yard touchdown pass to
Broncos junior Jon Bostic.
At that point, the Broncos led
7-0.
Palm Beach Central struck
again on a 64-yard touchdown
pass from Simmons to Bostic
with 2:54 left in the first quarter.
Nobody thought that the Raiders
would be down by two touch-
downs this early in the game.
But the Raiders did not panic.
On first down at the Palm
Beach Central 28-yard line, Mc-
Coy threw a hitch pass to Travis
Benjamin. It seemed as though
one Broncos defender was going
to tackle Benjamin shortly after
the catch, but the wide receiver's
speed was too much as he sprint-
ed toward the end zone with 2:16
left in the first quarter.
This would prove to be the
Raiders' first of five unanswered
touchdown drives in the game.
With 8:42 left in the second
quarter, McCoy threw for his sec-
ond touchdown pass, this time to
Glades Central junior Rantavious
Wooten on a 23-yard pass.
From there, it seemed as if the
Broncos just could not respond
to the Raiders' strikes, as Glades
Central's defense forced Palm
Beach Central's last two drives
in the first half to stall with two


I iNi/Naji Tobias
At Friday night's football game between the Glades Central Raiders and Palm Beach Central
Broncos at Palm Beach Central High School in Wellington, Raiders quarterback Deandre Hol-
ley right is discussing with Raiders wide receiver Travis Benjamin left the touchdown
drive, which saw Holley connect on a 50-yard TD pass to Raiders wide receiver Eddie Poole.
The two were very excited about putting the game out of reach at that point Glades Central
was leading Palm Beach Central 35-14 with 9:36 left in the fourth quarter. The final score was
42-22 in favor of Glades Central.


three-and-outs.
Later in the second quarter, the
Raiders decided to shake things
up a little bit by inserting Hol-
ley in as running back for a few
plays, which ended with a 19-yard
touchdown run up the middle of
the field with 2:06 left in the sec-
ond quarter. At that point, Glades
Central gained its first lead with a
score of 21-14 and never looked
back.
The Raiders extended their
lead to 28-14 with two seconds
left in the second quarter on Mc-
Coy's third touchdown pass of the
game. That touchdown pass was
a 16-yard bomb to Holley.
In the third quarter, there
would, be no touchdowns from
either team Palm Beach Central
was just hoping it could stay in
the game at that point. Late in the
third quarter, it seemed as if the
Broncos were going to claw their
way back into it, mustering up a
promising drive that resulted in
Palm Beach Central gaining three


first downs to the Glades Central
40 yard line.
But by the time the Broncos
reached the Raiders 35 yard line
to end the quarter, there was a
feeling that the Raiders would
somehow put a stop to this drive.
That's exactly what happened
when Raiders senior defensive
back Da'Coby Wooten made pos-
sibly the most important defen-
sive play of the game. On fourth
and four at the Raiders' 34 yard
line early in the fourth quarter,
it looked as if the Broncos quar-
terback was going to complete a
potential first down pass to Bron-
cos senior running back Zedrick
Joseph. But Wooten broke up the
play, essentially ending any hope
that the Broncos would regain the
lead they once had in the game.
Glades Central put the game
out of reach shortly after that big
play, when Holley connected on a
50-yard touchdown pass to Raid-
ers senior wide receiver Eddie
Poole with 9:36 left in the fourth


quarter. At that point, the Raiders
led the Broncos 35-14.
Later in the fourth, Palm Beach
Central made a dent into that big
lead, blocking a Raiders punt with
3:41 left in the game to make it 35-
16. Only 10 seconds later, Joseph
returned a 65-yard kickoff return
for a touchdown, making the
score 35-22.
But in the end, Holley put the
icing on the cake with a game-
ending 11-yard touchdown run
with 1:12 left in the game.
If anyone is going to beat the
Raiders, allowing 401 yards to
them 205 rushing and 196 pass-
ing certainly won't get it done.
Committing seven penalties and
missing a host of tackles won't get
it done, either.
John B. Timmons, the Palm
Beach Central head coach, sums
up the game for the Broncos.
"Glades Central is a very talent-
ed and well-coached team," the
Broncos head coach said.."We
knew the Raiders weren't going to


fold in the game. We made some
mistakes and they capitalized
on it. That's what great football
teams do."
Coach Timmons briefly
touched on what he believes the
Broncos need to improve on.
"We need to tackle better and
our penalties killed us," Coach
Timmons said. "Coverage wise,
we need to get better also. Glades
Central came out throwing
they're fast and they made the
plays they had to. They did a hell
of a job tonight."
Glades Central head coach
Willie Snead reflected on how the
game went for the Raiders.
"It took us a while to get go-
ing," Coach Snead said. "I don't
know if it was because it was our
first road game or what, but our
coaches were frustrated in the
beginning of the game. The kids
didn't panic we were just flat
in the first quarter. Some of our
guys came in later on and gave us
a spark and after that, we just got
going from there."
The Raiders head coach
weighed in on Holley's perfor-
mance in particular the all-pur-
pose player rushed for 66 yards,
passed for 72 yards and caught a
16-yard touchdown pass to give.
him 154 total yards for the night.
Also, Holley was the Raiders punt-
er for the game.
"Deandre is a leader with four
years of varsity experience and
has played every position for us,"
the head coach said. "He is very
smart, knows the system and is
very valuable to the team."
The Broncos finished with 258
total yards, with 111 passing yards
from Simmons and 87 of the 147.
rushing yards from senior running
back David Ahola.
The Glades Central Raiders,
who now have a 2-0 record, play
tomorrow night at Palm Beach
Gardens, who lost 34-8 to the Pa-
hokee Blue Devils in the season
opener. Palm Beach Central, who
is now 1-1, next play at Inlet Grove
for tomorrow night's contest.
Pahokee 39, King's Acad-
emy 17: The Pahokee Blue Devils
earned their second victory of the
season with a convincing victory
over the King's Academy Lions.
Once again, Blue Devils senior
quarterback Anthony Sheppard


threw for 235 yards. Only this
time, he threw for two scores,
with wide receivers Nu'Kese Rich-
ardson and Antavious Wilson
scoring touchdown catches each.
Sheppard also had a 1-yard
touchdown run in the second
quarter.
Blue Devils senior running
back Janoris Jenkins finished with
14 rushes for 132 yards, including
a 25-yard touchdown run in the
second quarter.
The Blue Devils racked up 456
total yards, which included 221 of
them from the ground. Wilson ac-
counted for 113 of the Blue Devils
235 receiving yards.
King's Academy had a good
running game with 163 yards
141 of them which came from
Lions senior running back Myles
Jackson. But the Lions were only
able to account for 50 passing
yards, giving King's Academy a to-
tal of 213 yards for the game.
Also, the Lions were inter-
cepted twice by the Blue Devils
defense something they could
not overcome.
Tomorrow night, Pahokee,
who is 2-0 and is the 141'-ranked
football team in the country, next
play at Palm Beach Lakes. King's
Academy, who is 1-1, hosts Amer-
ican Heritage.
Glades Day 25, Benjamin
12: Glades Day junior quarter-
back Bo Schlecter was 9-for-14
with 207 yards passing and three
touchdowns, while senior -run-
ning back Ernest Jackson lead the
rushing attack with 95 yards in the
Gators win.
SGators junior wide receiver
Jarrett Swaby had two receptions
both were touchdown catches
of 32 and 42 yards, respectively.
Jackson also caught a touchdown
pass from Schlecter a 57-yard
strike in the second quarter.
Glades Day finished with 365
total, yards, while its stingy de-
fense limited the Benjamin Bucs
to 144 yards for the game.
Glades Day plays at home to-
morrow night against the Clewis-
ton Tigers. The Gators, 2-0, will be
playing a Tigers team that is 0-2,
including a 28-0 blowout loss to
the La Belle Cowboys last Friday
night.

'Youth Alive' group takes services to the ball field


By Laura Mathis
MOORE HAVEN Last
Wednesday night, Sept. 5, the
Youth Group from the First Baptist
Church of Moore Haven "Youth


Alive" brought their Wednesday
night service out to the commu-
nity. The members of the 'Youth
Alive' group ran the whole eve-
ning. First, Susan Mathis led the
entire group with a blessing for


the food. Then everyone enjoyed
hamburgers and hot dogs, donat-
ed by the F.C.A.
Lindsey Ringstaff welcomed
everyone and explained a little bit
about what we do on Wednesday


nights. Then we had several of
our youth lead everyone in praise
and worship "Youth Alive" style,
and others held up the words so
everyone in the crowd could join
in.
Youth Alive member, Hunter
Ward introduced our speaker for
the night, (Mr., Coach, Minister)
Vincent Lewis. He had a great
message for everyone there,
young and old alike.
"We are all special to God and
we all have a "talent" so we should


use it for HIM", explained Minister
Lewis. Lastly, Macy Randolph in-
troduced our softball coaches for
the night, Mr. Jamie Brown and
Mr. Tommy Hare. Then everyone
enjoyed a fun game of softball,
whether they were playing or sit-
ting in the stands cheering!
SThere are so many people we
would like to THANK and we
hope to not leave out anyone.
First and foremost, our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ, for everyone
having a fun and safe time and for


the great weather; Our Church
for allowing us to take our ser-
vice outside the church building;
F.C.A. for all the food and drinks;
Padro Navarro for cooking; Greg
and Mary Bond, Crystal Drake
and John and Sheryl Huysman for
serving; Vincent Lewis for deliver-
ing the message; Jamie Brown
and Tommy Hare for coaching;
Donnie Murphy, Alvin Ward and
everyone else who helped with
setting up --thank you for using
your "talents" for the Lord!

The people opposed themselves!


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
The Apostle Paul said that
"no man every yet hated his own
body" (Ephesians 5:28-29). Nor-
mally speaking, this is true. But
there have been and are situations
where it would seem that some
people actually opposes them-
selves, and even hated themselves,
if we took them for what they said
and the way they acted to mean
anything. Let us notice some in-
teresting illustrations along this
line from the scriptures.
Starting with the book of Prov-
erbs, we read, "He that refuseth
instruction despiseth his own
soul: but he that heareth reproof
getteth understanding" (Proverbs
15:21). Then as wisdom speaks
out in Proverbs 8:35-36, she says,
"For whoso findeth me findeth
life, and shall obtain favour of the
Lord. But he that sinneth against


me wrongeth his own soul: all
they that hate me love death."
Proverbs 29:34 states, "Whoso
is partner with a thief hateth his
own soul..." The end results of
being unwise, and disregarding
wisdom, is the same as if we ac-
tually hated ourselves. We can be
"pretty" dumb sometimes.
Some interesting Scriptures
appear in the New Testament on
the subject. In the book of Acts
we have a record of the speech
that Paul delivered in the Jewish
synagogue in Antioch. It was a
message of forgiveness of sin and
salvation through Christ (and the
eternal results, everlasting life).
But it was categorically turned
down by his Jewish audience in
an atmosphere of hostility. Paul
and Barnabas, without hesitation,
plainly and clearly responded with
these sobering words, "It was
necessary that the word of God
should first have been spoken to


you; but seeing ye put it from you,
and judge yourselves unworthy of
everlasting life, lo, we turn to the
Gentiles" (Acts 13:46). In essence,
and in fact, this was what they
were doing, judging themselves
unworthy of everlasting life. And
this was followed by persecutions
against Paul and Barnabas. Really,
nothing could be any more for our
benefit and in our favor than this
message of love, hope and salva-
tion. To oppose it actually is to op-
pose ourselves and all of the con-
sequent eternal good that would
come in our behalf. And to think
that persecution-would come as a
result of telling people such good
news! What a contradiction and a
mixed up situation!
Later in dealing with false
teachers, Paul admonishes his
felloW-worker, Titus, "A man that"
is a heretick (a divisive; factious
person) after the first and second
admonition reject; Knowing that


he that is subverted (perverted),
and sinneth, being condemned of
himself" (Titus 3:10-11). Yes, by
his actions he actually condemns
himself.
Normally, people do not hate
themselves and then intentionally
respond and make decisions that
are destructive to their own per-
sonal well-being, but from these
Scriptures (and our own observa-
tions and experiences) we have
seen this taking place. What they
do is not thought of in these terms,
but the end result is nonetheless
the same. The Scriptures simply
tell it like it is. Sometimes we are
our own worst enemy!

"Homophobia" please call me or

When weakness becomes strength; seeing what God sees


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
When I skipped a grade in el-
ementary school, sports was an
area where I didn't do as well as
1 did in other
areas. I am also
left-handed; it
was always a S
problem to find "
a baseball glove
or set of golf
clubs tailored to
my preference.
When it came Samuel S.
to choosing up Thomas
teams, I usually
was among the last chosen.
There was a teacher in el-
ementary school who served as
coach one year and she asked the
captain of the baseball team why I
wasn't chosen. "He can't bat!" she
was told and I will always remem-
ber her response. "Of course he
can't bat," she replied, "you never
give him a chance." At that point,
I was "chosen" and found out
something else. It seemed that the
pitchers were used to looking at


right-handed batters and I looked
different to them. This left them
off-guard. After stepping up to the
plate, I swung at the first ball to
cross, hitting a double and bring-
ing a teammate home. My limita-
tion turned out to be a strength;
I found that my batting "back-
wards" gave me an edge. It took
someone with a larger view of the
situation to see that I got an op-
portunity; her faith in the smaller,
more awkward, left-handed kid
led to an opportunity not to disap-
point her.
Later we would get our daugh-
ter a two-wheel bicycle with
training wheels. Little by little the
wheels would be raised until one
day they were no longer needed as
she gained confidence and found
out for herself what we already
knew. It was having faith, really
knowing of her ability to learn to
ride the bike that was called out of
her; a little faith, a little guidance,
and she could do it on her own.
I can imagine Moses saying
"O Lord, I am not eloquent ... but
am slow of speech and tongue
(Exodus 4:10) when God called
him to lead the people of Israel


and confront Pharaoh. We learn
that God told him He would put
words in the mouth of his more
eloquent brother Aaron, but most
of all God tells Moses "... I will be
with your mouth and his mouth
and will teach you what you shall
do (v.13)" It is Moses who led and
who mediated between God and
His people and who delivered the
people from slavery to the prom-
ised land.
God calls and the fear of not
being able is vanished. Isaiah who
fears he cannot speak and be a
prophet calls out, "Woe is me, for
I am lost: for I am a man of un-
cleaned lips (Isaiah 6:5)" and then
his mouth is touched and Isaiah is
!told his guilt is taken away and his
sin is forgiven. Then Isaiah heard
the Lord ask "Whom shall I send
and who will go for us? (v.8)"and
Isaiah answers "Here am I! Send
me!"
There is a Bible full and world
full of people that have accom-
plished the impossible because
someone had faith in them;
sometimes it was God Himself
and sometimes one of His angels.
God. sees us in all of our fullness;


weaknesses and strengths, assets
and liabilities. He calls us to see in
others what He sees; often when
they don't see it themselves. He
has a way of turning weaknesses
into strengths, giving courage to
the fearful, calling out of us our
very best when others are sure
we can'tdo it.
I never really went anywhere
with baseball, but every once in
awhile I'd get up to bat and see a
pitcher with a look that said "easy
out" and wait my turn. It would
come.
Every once in awhile someone
would come to me and I'd see
something that would make me
say "Why don't you..." and hear
"I can't."
"Oh yeah?" I'd say, "There's
nothing that you and God can't
-do together."
I believe that because I've
lived it. And do you know what?
I've seen it happen; thanks be to
God-it happens when you give it a
chance to happen.
God is there; He comes or
sends an angel every once in
awhile and "I can't" becomes
"Wow!"


When the sheep



comes home


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Reading the Bible is some-
times like going to the movies,
in the sense that we encounter
stories that don't quite ring true:
A man leaving 99 sheep to look
for a lost one or a woman throw-
ing a party to celebrate the find-
ing of a lost coin? Does anyone
actually do
that? Can you
imagine getting
an invitation
to a "lost coin
found" party?
It seems
unreal -- like
in the mov-
ies when one John
person starts Hicks
dancing in the
street and then suddenly every-
one else starts to dance along
with him. And they know all the
steps! Yeah, right!
But maybe stories from Scrip-
ture point to a deeper truth, one
that is even more real than the
day-to-day existence we experi-
ence. Perhaps the stories of the
gospel are God's truth, not hu-
man truth. It is the Lord God
who feels joy because He has
found a missing sheep and He
invites us to lay aside our skepti-
cism and rejoice along with Him
when He carries that lost sheep
home.
"I tell you, Jesus states, there
will be more joy in heaven over
one sinner who repents than
over ninety-nine righteous peo-
ple who do not need to repent."
More" joy over the tax collector
who repents than over 99 Phari-
sees, more delight over the pros-
titute who repents than over 99
scribes, more rejoicing over the
drug dealer who repents than
over 99 clean and sober Chris-
tians, more happiness over the
career criminal who repents than
over 99 law-abiding Americans.


It would be easy to think that
this kind of stuff happens only in
the Scriptures; but the trith, is it
also happens all around us in the
kingdom of God. When the lost
are found, God throws a party
and wants us all to join the cel-
ebration. There's nothing unre-
alistic about it. The challenge for
us is to join God in feeling mercy
toward those who are lost.
Several years ago, I was
working in a playground when
my wedding ring slipped off
of my finger. I could not find it
anywhere. In desperation, I took
off my shoes to mark the area
where'the ring came off of my
finger and hurriedly sought help.
With hope fading, I was crawl-
ing around on my hands and
knees. I was about to go rent a
metal detector when one of my
friends found it. And I can assure
you, there was great rejoicing!
Understand, things go lost
in my house on a regular basis
and we don't drop everything to
search until we find them, un-
less it is my car keys, or the last
pair of my three pairs of glasses,
but I digress! I call in the search
party, only when something ex-
tremely valuable is lost. Other-
wise, I don't bother wasting the
time and just hope that it turns
up on its own.
Everything depends on how
much value we place on the lost.
Of course, Jesus' parables of the
lost sheep and the lost coin are
about the lost sinner who re-
pents and thus is found. If we see
people who don't know Christ
as individuals dearly loved by
God, then' they should become
extremely valuable. It might
behoove us to call in assistance
and work tirelessly until they are
found -- and then whoop it up
when they repent and return to
the community of faith.
