ear-old struck, killed


Witness: "It was just
a tragic accident"

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE -- A 3-year-old
child was struck and killed in a
terrible accident in Pahokee on
Monday.
Police say Mugtaba Abdalla,
28, was backing out of his drive-
way while the child was stand-
ing nearby. The impact fatally


injured the small child at the
Sugar Cane Villas home.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
at 5:26 p.m., 3-year-old John-
Tashia Bennett was standing
behind the driver's 2002 Ford
Crown Victoria as it started to
back out of the parking space.
As the vehicle started to
back out, a neighbor saw the
child behind the car.
The neighbor started yelling
and running towards the vehicle
to get it to stop, but was unable


to stop the tragic scene from un-
folding.
When the vehicle stopped,
the driver exited and realized he
struck the victim.
Kenyatta Altidor, another
Sugar Cane Villas neighbor,
called 911.
"When I saw a lady scream-
ing, trying to tell the driver of the
car to stop, I thought it was one
of my children," Ms. Altidor said.
"By the time I got out there, the
girl was under the tire and one
of the girl's cousins came run-

Thanksgiving Celebration at Gove ES
On Tuesday, Nov. 20 during Ms. Sherrie Berard's kindergarten class, Ms. Berard is at

Turkey Sat in the Backyard' and 'The 10 Little Indians.' Ms. Berta M. Alvarez, the magnet

On Tuesday, Nov. 20, about 30 families
and 100 people overall came to celebrate
Thanksgiving dinner at Pahokee Elemen-
tary School. The function was put together
by the Pahokee Beacon Center and the
Home Instruction of Parents of Preschool
Youngsters (HIPPY). According to Renada
Snead, the family support specialist for the
Pahokee Beacon Center, there was a vari-
ety of food served, including turkey, ham,
candy yams, stuffing, green beans, rice
and much more. It seemed that everyone
who was in line for the food enjoyed the

Ms. Altidor, who was nearby,
witnessed the gruesome se-

"The 3-year-old was uncon-

they pronounced her dead."

New water

expected soon


Glades-area expect-
ed to be online soon

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY.- Currently, many
in the Glades area report the
drinking water from faucets is
muddy and has a chlorine taste
to it.
Some residents say that the
water is just not drinkable.
As of next summer, the
Glades area likely won't have
these water issues anymore.
According to George Home,


a representative of the South
Florida Water Management
District (SFMWD), the regional
water treatment plant will draw
water from the Floridan aquifer
instead of Lake Okeechobee.
The Floridan aquifer is saline
water that moves below the
land surface throughout Flori-
da.
Recently, the water district
presented positive news for the
Glades area in a press confer-
ence that addressed the im-
pending drought issue during
the dry season, which began

Gators make semifinals


Blue Devils,
Raiders inch closer
to state titles

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
FORT MEADE -- For the
second consecutive year, the
Glades Day Gators are in the
Class 1A state semifinals after
defeating the Fort Meade Fight-
ing Miners, 23-21.
The very special thing about
this victory was that after play-
ing Fort Meade for the ninth
straight year in the playoffs,
Glades Day finally beat the
Fighting Miners on their own


field.
Fort Meade saw that Glades
Day is a team on a mission.
It certainly showed toward
the end of the garrie.
Down by only two points
with 32 seconds left in the
game, Fort Meade was driving
towards a chance to end Glades
Day's season.
After a 9-yard run on a fourth
down play by Fort Meade quar-
terback Rumeal Carlton, the
Fighting Miners seemed to be
in the prime position to clinch
the victory.
But on first down at the Ga-
tors 27 yard line, with 25.1 sec-
onds left in the game, Gators
senior Cody Davis preserved


the win on a game-ending in-
terception by Carlton.
From that point, the Gators
celebrated their big win on the
Fighting Miners field.
"It feels good that we won
this game," Davis said. "I just
wanted to make sure I didn't
drop the interception. We
stepped up when we needed to
against this tough Fort Meade
team."
The final score was made
possible by a 22-yard field goal
by Gators junior Bo Schlecter
with 58.4 seconds left in the
game.

Water conservation


summit December 4


WEST PALM BEACH -- With
no immediate end in sight for
the current severe regional wa-
ter shortage, the South Florida
Water Management District
(SFWMD) Governing Board in
October unanimously adopted
a resolution calling for a Water
Conservation Summit to bring
together local, state and national
experts along with a broad range
of stakeholders to develop and
implement an enduring, com-
prehensive water conservation
program for South Florida. The
Summit will take place Dec. 4
at District headquarters in West
Palm Beach.
"As this year's drought re-
minds us, the days of cheap and
unlimited water are over. Resi-
dents and businesses must de-
velop a culture of conservation
to protect our limited water re-
sources," said District Governing
Board Chairman Eric Buermann.
"Our goal is to create a long-term
water conservation program that
is active all year round, not just
during droughts, and results in
a measurable and lasting differ-
ence."
The Summit, the second in
a series of public water forums
hosted by the SWFMD, will draw
insight from the experience of
other organizations that have
developed and implemented
successful water conservation
programs in other regions of the
country. It will bring together a
broad range of water user sectors
to assist SFWMD in providing ini-
tial input toward the drafting and
implementation of a compre-
hensive District-wide water con-
servation program. The program
components will include regu-
latory, education and voluntary
and incentive-based initiatives.
The Water Conservation
Summit will be hosted by SFW-
MD's Water Resources Advisory
Commission on Tuesday, Dec..
4, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
at the agency's headquarters in
West Palm Beach. A final report
with recommendations will be
presented during the Governing
Board meeting in April 2008, Wa-
ter Conservation Month.
Morning panel presentations
by invited speakers will present
case studies on successful wa-
ter conservation programs from
other areas of Florida, the South-
- east U.S. and the nation. Informa-
tion will include lessons learned
by other entities, the obstacles
encountered, their accomplish-
ments and the costs.
Scheduled presenters in-
clude:


Janet G. Llewellyn, Director,
Division of Water Resource Man-
agement, Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
Jeff Pearson, Director of
Utilities, Charlotte County Utili-
ties
Rob Teegarden, Chair,
Florida Section, American Wa-
ter Works Association and Vice-
President of the Water Business
Unit, Orlando Utilities Commis-
sion

Management Coordinator, Tam-
pa Bay Water
David Self, President, Florida
Nursery Grow&rs and Landscap-
ers Association
Jack Wilbur, Public Infor-
mation and Social Marketing
Specialist, Utah Department of
Agriculture and Food.
Also planned to follow this
summit is a series of approxi-
mately four monthly meetings
designed to gain input from
representatives of the various
stakeholder groups on SFWMD's
comprehensive water conserva-
tion program.
"The purpose of the monthly
stakeholder meetings will be to
obtain valuable information from
and build consensus toward a
water conservation program that
is built on collaboration and co-
operation between all those with
an interest in Florida's water fu-
ture," Buermann said.
The stakeholder groups will
include representatives from lo-
cal governments, agriculture,
nursery/landscape, utilities, de-
velopers, property owners and
homeowner associations, envi-
ronmental organizations, parks
and recreation, sports and leisure,
tourism, small business, manu-
facturing, and hospitality and
service industry. Technical advi-
sors will include representatives
from the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, Flor-
ida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, U.S. En-
vironmental Protection Agency
and Tribes.
SThe Water Conservation Sum-
mit will be web cast to maximize
participation and information
sharing, allowing the public
throughout the 16-county water
management district to tune in.

The Counseling Corner

Do holidays make you blue?


By the American
Counseling Association
It's the holiday season and
everywhere people are happy
and excited...except you. In-
stead, you're feeling stressed
and depressed. It's called the
"holiday blues" and it's a fairly
common condition, though one
often hidden behind false holi-
day smiles.
One reason the holiday sea-
son can seem depressing is that
it comes at a time when we may
be mentally summing up the
year, especially its troubles and
shortcomings. Year-end memo-
ries commonly focus on prob-
lems of the past year -- illnesses,
loss of loved ones, work or re-
lationship problems, or things
falling short of our expectations
-- rather than the positive hap-
penings of the year.
The holidays are also a
busy time. Added to the nor-
mal stresses of daily living are
the anxieties of gift buying,
holiday parties, family issues,
social obligations and other
stress-inducers of this season.
Holiday media images can also
leave us with impossibly perfect
holiday expectations. Advertis-
ing, TV shows, and magazine
stories are present wonderful
family holidays that never hap-
pen in real life, but still leave us
feeling that we're falling short of
how things should be. All these


complications of the season
can certainly leave us feeling
blue, but there are steps to take
to minimize their effect on our
emotional state.
A healthy lifestyle is a good
start. Instead of overeating or
drinking excessively because
you're feeling stressed, make
conscious decisions to enjoy
holiday food and drink, but to
do so in moderation. At non-
party times, choose tasty low-fat
foods. You'll feel better and avoid
the stress of holiday weight gain.
Other healthy lifestyle decisions
include getting enough sleep
and exercise. A brisk daily walk
in the sunshine is a very effec-
tive way to fight depression.
Studies also fine even moderate
exercise can reduce stress and
mild depression.
You also want to stay con-
nected. Feeling sad often causes
people to withdraw and isolate
themselves. Instead, make a real
effort to spend time with friends,
to call or write those you care
about and to remember past
good times you've enjoyed with
these people.
Simply talking about your
holiday feelings with friends
can also help. Their support
and comfort can make a real
difference. And while the holi-
day blues are usually only tem-
porary and fairly mild, talk to a
counseling professional.


Be 'toy recall' cautious shopping this season


TALLAHASSEE -- Attorney
General Bill McCollum has is-
sued a consumer advisory, urg-
ing parents to check toy recall
lists before shopping for their
children's holiday presents. Ac-
cording to the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission
(CPSC), more than 50 toys have
been recalled since the begin-
ning of the year, most due to
toxic levels of lead or lead paint.
The toys include popular brands
such as Mattel and Fisher-Price
and millions of "must-have"
toys such as certain Thomas &
Friends Wooden Railway Toys,
Aqua Dots craft kits and some
Barbie doll accessories. I am
concerned about the stagger-
ing number of reports of tainted
toys coming into the United
States and the dangers they
pose to our children," said At-
torney General Bill McCollum.
"Parents need to do their re-
search before they head out for
holiday toy shopping. There is
nothing more important than


the safety of our children and in
this case, knowledge could liter-
ally save lives."
The dangers don't stop with
lead exposure, as evidenced
with there call this month of
the Aqua Dots craft kit because
of toxic coating on the toy that
rendered at least two children
unconscious. While most toys
should at this point have been
pulled from store shelves, Mr.
McCollum encouraged parents
to go back and check any toys
they may have purchased ear-
lier in the year before recalls
were announced. Recalled toys
can also occasionally show
up at flea markets and resale
shops. To make it easier for par-
ents to keep track of the recalls,
the Attorney General's Office is
providing a "Do Not Shop" list
containing the most recently re-
called toys for parents to print
and take into stores when holi-
day shopping.
The list, along with links to
the CPSC's website is available


on the Attorney General's web-
site at http://www.myfloridale-
gal.com. A current list of toys
recalled this year can also be
found at: http://www.cpsc.gov/
recentrecalls.html.
The Attorney General's Of-
fice will continue to monitor


the recalls and discuss options
with Attorneys General around
the country who are equally
concerned about lead-tainted
toys. As it becomes available,
the Attorney General's Office
will provide additional recall in-
formation on its website.

WEST PALM BEACH Every
day, an average of four to five
helicopter missions are com-
pleted by the South Florida
Water Management District
flight operations team, totaling
more than 3,000 hours of flight
time each year and 1,600 indi-
vidual missions. More than 85
percent of these flights are de-
voted to Everglades's research,
data collection, maintenance
of thousands of miles of canals
and flood control structures,
regulatory inspections, water
quality monitoring, vegetation
management and other field
support initiatives critical to the
District's mission.
A fleet of three helicopters
and a seasoned crew of five pi-
lots streamline the agency's fed-
erally-mandated environmental
restoration and research initia-
tives. In most cases, the flights
provide access to environmen-
tally sensitive areas and landing
sites too remote or impractical
to reach by land. During the
height of the drought this sum-
mer, many critical sites within
Lake Okeechobee became un-
reachable even by airboat be-
cause of low water and vegeta-
tion overgrowth. Water quality
monitoring and invasive plant
control efforts could only be
achieved through flight opera-
tions.
"As stewards of the Ever-
glades, the State of Florida is
among the nation's most ag-
gressive states when it comes
to the sheer volume of envi-
ronmental data collected, and
the need for accuracy in our
research validates the need
for helicopter transportation
to these remote areas," said
SFWMD Chief Pilot Michael
Piccone. "It is imperative that
samples from monitoring sites
be returned to District labs for
analysis immediately, so the
use of District helicopters is the
only way to ensure timely, reli-
able data."
Federal law mandates that
the SFWMD conduct research,
environmental monitoring and
regulatory activities throughout
the agency's 18,000-square-
mile area. This includes nearly
1,900 miles of canals and levees,
more than, 2,200 water control
structures, nearly 60,000 acres
of stormwater treatment areas,
and approximately 900,000
acres of water conservation
areas, comprising much of the
historic Everglades system.
To comply with these obliga-
tions, the SFWMD has installed
recorders, hydrolabs, data col-
lection and water quality moni-
toring equipment at hundreds
of sites throughout the Ever-
glades and Kissimmee basins.
Because water samples dete-
riorate after just four hours, the
District's stringent reporting fe-
quirements are only achievable
using aircraft for access.
Among other critical duties,
District pilots assist in emergen-

cy flight operations, including
aerial inspections and surveil-
lance required following tropi-
cal storm events or during se-
vere droughts. Following heavy
rains, the District also conducts
aerial inspections for flood con-
trol and to identify potential ob-
structions in local waterways
- tasks that could never be con-
ducted efficiently by land.
For more than 40 years,
aircraft use at the District has
been governed by the State
of Florida's Aircraft Use Poli-
cy and closely managed by the
District's own Travel Policy. All
flights must be approved by
District management, and each
flight is cost-justified against
commercial air travel rates.
With an annual operat-
ing budget of $2.2 million, the
District's flight operations rep-
resent a substantial savings to
Florida taxpayers. If contracted
to outside vendors, it is esti-
mated that the District's annual
flight operations budget would
total more than $3.2 million.

Holiday ideas for healthy eating newszap.com
Community Links. Ind/vdual Voices.


By Mary Ruth Prouty, RN
Think 90/10. If you completely
deprive yourself of treats espe-
cially during the holidays it is a
recipe for weight control disaster.
Would you sit a child in front of a
huge pile of candy only to tell her
she couldn't have any of it, not a
single piece, and expect her to
respond positively? Being around
delicious foods and not having a
taste is agonizing. During the hol-
iday season, aim to eat healthy
food and stay within your calorie
and fat goals approximately 90
percent of the time and the re-.
maining 10 percent don't worry
about what you should or should
not eat. Enjoy a treat or two!
When a craving hits, give in
a little! If you really feel like hav-
ing a piece of candy, have it. But
stop at one! If you can't prevent


a craving, often the best way to
beat a craving is actually to sat-
isfy it a little. The problem with
many cravings is that they get out
of control when you don't satisfy
them initially. If you really feel
like having a piece of candy, have
it. Don't try to substitute it with a
range of other foods when you'll
end ulI eating the candy anyway.
If you obsessively avoid the food
you're craving, you're also far
more likely to binge on it even-
tually than if you have a small
amount when you first crave it.
But watch out, this advice can
be dangerous if you ignore the "a
little" part. If you know you can't
stop at a little, it's best not to start
at all.
Don't go hungry. It's lunch-
time. Patty just finished a deli-
cious grilled vegetable sandwich,


a bottle of water, a yogurt and a
fresh fruit salad. She also had eggs
on whole grain toast for break-
fast. Maria had a cup of black
coffee for breakfast and an apple
for lunch. Who is more likely to
snack on holiday treats this after-
noon? Hunger makes you weak,
in more ways than one. If you're
hungry, you lose your ability to
make good choices. Your body
and mind are on a mission to eat
whatever is available and with
all those holiday treats around,
resisting is hard. And weight
gain is easier. "Don't go hungry"
means eat regular meals and two
planned snacks each day so that
you don't get hungry. In order
to reduce cravings, binges, and
general overeating throughout
the holidays, eat enough so that
you don't get hungry.


But it's okay to be hungry.
Didn't I just say "don't go hun-
gry?" The fact is there are two
kinds of hunger. Physiological
hunger is the need to eat to stay
alive and well. This time we're
talking about hunger that you
feel because you're bored, or
stressed, or depressed, or simply
see some food you want. Re-
sponding to this kind of hunger
easily leads to extra weight gain.
"It's okay to be hungry" means
it's okay to feel a sensation that
you believe is hunger without
acting on it. This holiday season;
give yourself time to think before
the impulse to eat takes over.
When you feel "hungry" give
yourself 30 seconds to "check"
your hunger is it true hunger or
has something prompted you to
want to eat?

Peppermint can help diges-

can be very soothing to an upset
stomach. According to www.
peoplespharmacy.com, coated
peppermint pills, which ensure
the herb is delivered to the small

body absorbs the drugs.
Ginger is reputed to be a
home remedy cure for a number
of ailments. Pregnant women are
sometimes advised to munch on

Glades General Hospital CIO wins

National Hero of Healthcare award


BELLE GLADE -- For the sec-
ond time in a year, Glades Gen-
eral Hospital's Chief Information
Officer Adam Levenson has been
recognized for his leadership in
instituting leading edge techno-
logical advances in healthcare.
The Stuart resident was recently
awarded the Heroes of Health-
care Award bestowed by Health
Management System, Inc. Mr.
Levenson was one of six hon-
orees chosen from more than
500 hospitals nationwide by the
Nashville-based leader in hospital
information systems.
The award recognizes the in-
trepid, relentless- and visionary
men and women who pioneer
the healthcare highway. Leven-
son was recognized for a com-
bination of projects completed
during the last year and a half,
including seven system imple-
mentations and upgrades as well
as staff training and retraining as
Glades General Hospital moves
toward a completely paperless
environment.
Glades General Hospital CEO,
David Zechman nominated Lev-


enson for the award. "In the past
few years, the hospital has invest-
ed millions of dollars in techno-
logical upgrades," Mr. Zechman
explained. "Apart from the whiz-
bang coolness factor, Adam has
enthusiastically paved the way for
services that have a direct impact
on the lives of our patients such as
the electronic birth registry which
allows mothers to register a birth
certificate at the bedside thus ex-
pediting enrollment in Healthy
Start and other services for their
newborns."
Mr. Levenson has been with
Glades General Hospital for nine
years. He and his team manage
the information systems that
serve more than 270 employees
as well as outside physicians.
Earlier this year, he received the
Achievement of Accomplishment
Award from the Palm Beach
County Community Health Alli-
ance for his efforts in establishing
Allcare, a shared data computer
registry program enabling physi-
cians to access patients' medical
documentation from any hospital
within the Allcare network.

A clever idea from South Bay company


Plastic offset blocks
on highways
guardrails planned

By Naji Tobias
The Sun


SOUTH BAY -- Plastic Pallet
Solutions Inc. in South Bay has
developed a proprietary technol-
ide: ogy system in its South Bay fac-
irum51 tory to produce what it hopes
will revolutionize the concept of
safety on the roads.
rum57 That according to Yoran
orum58 Aisenberg, the company's presi-
dent. Plastic Pallets will begin to
tity manufacture offset blocks that
are typically seen on highway
guardrails made of a type of re-
cycled plastics.
The offset blocks are support


blocks for guardrails that run
along major highways like U.S.
27. The blocks connect to posts
deep in the ground to ensure
the guardrails' durability in acci-
dents.
The purpose of an offset
block is to deflect conductivity of
static electricity. In other words,
if a vehicle crashes on a guardrail
in an accident, the blocks help in
preventing a fire or explosion, ac-
cording to Mr. Aisenberg.
The technology, while based
on the concept of recycling, still
operates impressively in sorting
through plastics collected in the
local area and creating products
such as collection bins and the
offset blocks from it.
Mr. Aisenberg said that the
new pallets fare much better than
old pallets in that they provide a


much cleaner look than older,
wooden pallets. The company's
president said that the plastic pal-
lets weigh only 18 pounds while
pallets made from wood often
weigh considerably more.
Currently, the business pro-
cesses approximately 7 million
pounds of plastic annually from
the Glades area.
"We want to encourage the
people of the Glades area to recy-
cle so that our environment will
be cleaner," Mr. Aisenberg said.
"Our motto is that if we recycle,
we'll have a better world."
Plastic Pallets said it is hoping
to replace approximately 91,000
offset blocks stretching from
South Bay to Miami with the new
plastic offset blocks. The blocks
should last much longer than
wood, too, up to 25 years com-


pared with only four or five for
wood, he said.
To help accommodate this
task, the building -- which cur-
rently 35,000 square feet -- will be
expanding early next year to ap-
proximately 50,000 square feet.
Mr. Aisenberg hopes to create
a number of new jobs as a result
of the expansion. He expects that
200 people will be employed in
the factory; much more than the
company's 20 current employ-
ees.
"We are very proud to make
plastic goods from recycled con-
tent and in the process, creating
new jobs for the local economy,"
Mr. Aisenberg said.
For more information, contact
Plastic Pallets at 996-1111.

The following article is the
first in a five-part series written
by Gary W. Smith, C.C.D.C., who
has over 30 years experience in
the chemical dependency treat-
ment field. Mr. Smith is the Ex-
ecutive Director of the Narconon
Arrowhead Drug and Alcohol
Rehabilitation and Education
Center in Canadian, Oklahoma.
Whether a person is geneti-
cally or bio-chemically, predis-
posed to addiction or alcoholism
is a controversy that has been
debated for years within the sci-
entific, medical and chemical
dependency communities. One
school of thought advocates the
"disease concept," which em-
braces the notion that addiction
is an inherited disease, and that
the individual is permanently ill
at a genetic level, even for those
experiencing long periods of so-
briety.
Another philosophy argues
that addiction is a dual problem
consisting of a physical and men-
tal dependency on chemicals,
compounded by a pre-existing
mental disorder (i.e., clinical
depression, bipolar disorder, or
some other mental illness), and
that the mental disorder needs
to be treated first as the primary
cause of the addiction.
A third philosophy subscribes
to the idea that chemical de-
pendency leads to permanent
"chemical imbalances" in the
neurological system that must be
treated with psychotropic medi-


cations after the person has with-
drawn from their drug of choice.
The fact remains that there
is some scientific research that
favors each of these addiction
concepts, but none of them are
absolute. Based on national aver-
ages, there is a 16 to 20percent re-
covery rate, the message is pretty
clear that these theories are just
that -- theories and we have a lot
more to learn if we are to bring
the national recovery rate to a
more desirable level.
There is a fourth school of
thought which has proven to be
more accurate. It has to do with
'the life cycle of addiction. This
data is universally applicable to
addiction, no matter which hy-
pothesis is used to explain the
phenomenon of chemical depen-
dency. The life cycle of addiction
begins with a problem, discom-
fort or some form of emotional
or physical pain a person is ex-
periencing. The person finds this
very difficult to deal with.
Here is an individual who, like
most people in our society, is ba-
sically good. He has encountered
a problem that is causing him
physical or emotional pain and
discomfort that he does not have
an immediate answer for. Some
examples would include difficul-
ty "fitting in" as a child or teen-
ager, puberty, physical injuries
such a broken bone, a bad back
or some other chronic physical
condition. Whatever the origin
of the difficulty is, the discomfort
associated with it presents the


individual with a real problem.
He feels this problem is a major
situation that is persisting and he
can see no immediate resolution
or relief from it. Most of us have
experienced this in our lives to a
greater or lesser degree.
Once the person takes a drug
he feels relief from the discom-
fort, even though the relief is only
temporary, it is adopted as a so-
lution to the problem and the in-
dividual, places value on the drug
or drink. This assigned value is
the only reason the person ever
uses drugs or drinks a second,
third or more times.
There is a key factor involved
in this life cycle scenario that
determines which one of us be-
comes an addict and which one
does not. The answer depends
on whether or not, at the time
of this traumatic experience, we
are subjected to pro-drug or al-
cohol influences via some sort
of significant peer pressure that
influences our decision making
process in regards to how one
will find relief from the discom-
fort. Peer pressure can manifest
itself in many different ways; It
can come from friends or family
members or through some ven-
ue of advertising or promotion
which, when combined with the
degree of relief we receive from
the drug or drink, determines
the severity of the use. Simply
put, the bigger the problem the
greater the discomfort the person
is experiencing. The greater the
discomfort the more importance


the person places on relieving
it and the greater the value he
assigns to that- which brought
about the relief.
For those that start down the
path of addiction they will en-
counter other physical, mental
and life style changes along the
way that will begin to disinte-
grate the individual's quality of
life. If the drug or alcohol abuse
continues unchecked, eventually
the person is faced with so many
unpleasant circumstances in
their life that each sober moment
is filled with so much despair and
misery that all he wants to do is
escape these feelings by medi-
cating them away. This is the
downward spiral of addiction. At
this point for most there are only
three eminent outcomes; death,
prison or sobriety.

assistants are able to evaluate,
treat and discharge patients
with less-emergent needs.

"In a democracy, the highest office is that of citizens."
US Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter.


We agree. Yet too many citizens feel powerless to influence
the flow of events.


We give people a voice. Our Speak Out column is just one
example. We consider it an extension of the secret ballot
and a return of the values of the American Revolution.


How are we doing?

Two PBSO



deputies killed



yesterday


Massive search
for two possible
suspects is
underway

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE -- Two deputies
were killed, and one deputy
seriously injured in the early
morning hours yesterday in
Pahokee as they chased two
suspects who were in posses-
sion of a stolen car.
After the deaths, sheriff's
deputies began a large search
to find the suspects, who es-
caped the scene.
According to the official re-
port, the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office received a call
from a Belle Glade resident
regarding a stolen vehicle -- a
1990 gold Toyota Camry.
The caller told the sheriff's
office that two males were in-
volved in the car theft.
According to the sheriff's
office, as deputies responded
to investigate the report of the
stolen vehicle, they spotted it
traveling northbound on State
Road 715 and pursued the
car.
Three PBSO marked patrol
cars were behind the stolen
vehicle, traveling northbound
toward Pahokee, according to
the sheriff's office. Two addi-
tional deputies deployed tire-
deflation devices on the road-
way in front of the pursuit.
When the suspects' stolen
vehicle crossed the trap, .the
two deputies who had set it
were struck and died at the
scene. A third deputy in one of


the patrol vehicles sustained
serious injuries and was air-
lifted to St. Mary's Hospital for
treatment.
The two suspects ran from
the stolen vehicle after it came
to a complete stop and ran
into a nearby cane field.
At the writing of this article,
the sheriff's office was still
conducting a massive search
for the two suspects involved,
although the sheriff's, office
was interviewing Ernie Kirk
Daley Jr., 19, of Pahokee in
connection with the incident.
An investigation of the irici-
dent has revealed that the two
deputies killed on duty were
33-year-old Deputy Sheriff
Donta J. Manuel and 23-year-
old Deputy Sheriff Jonathan D.
Wallace. It was also revealed
that the two deputies were
struck and killed by a K-9 dep-
uty.
The sheriff's office said that
the two deputies, who were
on foot at the time of the inci-
dent, made a split-second de-
cision to go into the roadway
to try to remove the tire defla-
tion device from oncoming
PBSO patrol cars.
However, the K-9 deputy
operating the K-9 vehicle ap-
parently did not see the depu-
ties on the roadway, effectively'
killing them both instantly, ac-
cording to the sheriff's office.
It was revealed that the K-9
deputy lost control of the pa-
trol vehicle and crashed into
a nearby canal bank. The K-9
deputy's injuries included a
concussion and a broken arm,
the statement said. The dog in
the vehicle was not injured.

formance at quarterback as well,
throwing two timely passes to se-
nior wide receiver Anthony Nor-
ton on their game-winning drive.
Norton, who finished with
four catches for 115 yards and a
touchdown, put the Gators at the
Fort Meade seven yard line after a
beautiful 36-yard reception with
3:01 left in the game.
It was likely the play of the
game for the Gators offense.
"I thank God for making this
win possible," Norton said. "I put
faith in our defense after that late
run. Defense wins championships
and offense just sells tickets."
The Gators defense scored
two touchdowns on fumble re-
coveries in the first half, one each
by junior Cody Dionne and senior
Travis Auwaerter.
"I thought we played our
hearts out and we didn't quit,
making more plays than a tough
Fort Meade team," Glades Day
head coach Pete Walker said. "Bo
didn't throw the ball much but his
clutch kick won the game for us.
Cody had a great game on both
sides of the ball and Norton made
some fantastic catches for us, es-
pecially in the end of the game."
Davis led the Gators efficient
rushing attack for 117 yards on 20
carries.
For the Fighting Miners, senior
running back Ontero McCaifbb
finished with 218 yards on 19 car-
ries and a touchdown. Carlton
finished 9-for-18 passing with 128
yards, two touchdowns and that
game-ending interception.
Glades Day, the Class 1A re-
gional champions who are at 10-
2, will be hosting the American
Heritage-Delray Beach Stallions
on Friday night in a rematch from
earlier this season. The 33-8 loss
to the Stallions on Oct. 12 was the
last loss for the Gators.
Now, Glades Day hopes to get
revenge on a team that seems to
be on a mission of its own. The
winner of this game advances to
the Class 1A state championship
game in Orlando on Dec. 7.
"We have a lot of work to do
to get ready .for American Heri-
tage," Coach Walker said. "Ameri-
can Heritage has a fine football


team and I'm sure it's gonna be
a war."
Pahokee 39, King's Acad-
emy 10: The Blue Devils had an-
other outstanding game as Myles
Jackson, the Lions' all-purpose
player, was held to minus-12
yards rushing for the game.
Once Pahokee did that, the
game was pretty much over.
The mighty Blue Devils de-
fense held King's Academy to
138 total yards for the game and
Janoris Jenkins picked off Lions
quarterback Cory Donath for a
75-yard interception return for a
touchdown in the second half.
On offense, Blue Devils quar-
terback Anthony Sheppard led
the way with two passing touch-
downs on 14-for-23 passing with
226 yards. Vincent Smith, Martavi-
ous Odoms and Antavious Wilson
accounted for the five offensive
touchdowns for the Blue Devils.
The Blue Devils, 12-0 and on
a 26-game winning streak, move
on to the Class 2B state semifi-
nal game against Frostproof. It is
expected to be another blowout
win for Pahokee tomorrow night
at Lair Field.
Glades Central 8, Miami-
Monsignor Pace 6: Down 6-
5 late in the fourth quarter, the
Raiders showed once again why
they are a fourth-quarter team as
kicker Vincente Escobedo made a
game-winning 18-yard field goal
with 3:04 to play.
The Raiders defense also
stepped up late as sophomore
defensive back Travis Bell caught
a game-ending interception with
2:54 left in the game. Glades
Central's defense registered seven
sacks and limited Miami-Monsi-
gnor Pace to only 127 total offen-
sive yards.
Glades Central, which im-
proved to 11-1, move on to the
Class 3A regional finals on the
road tomorrow night against Na-
ples, the top-ranked team in Class
3A.

years on making the improve-
ments. The organization held a
meeting last week in Belle Glade
to discuss the work.
According to FDOT, there are
plans to make improvements on
S.R. 80 from the U.S. 27 intersec-
tion in South Bay to the Canal
No. 2 culvert in Belle Glade.
The two-and-a-half mile long
project is expected to begin in
March 2009 and is slated for
completion in March 2010, FDOT
representatives said.
Improvements for S.R. 80


Water
Continued From Page 1
on Nov. 1.
"This will be the last drought
during which the Glades area has
to depend on Lake Okeechobee
for water," said. Carol Wehle,
a water district representative.
"We're pleased to announce that
the communities of South Bay,
Belle Glade and Pahokee will
have a reverse-osmosis water sys-
tem beginning next summer."
In simple terms, the regional
water treatment will provide
clean and safe drinking water for
everyone in the Glades area.
Pahokee Mayor J. P. Sasser
feels that the residents of the city
will have a consistent, safe source
of drinking water that will ulti-
mately cost them less than what
they are paying now.
"With the new regional water
treatment plant, our residents will
no longer have to depend on bot-
tled water, with their city water
costing less," Mayor Sasser said.
"It will certainly ease the financial
burden of our citizens because
they no longer have to buy bottled
water in addition to paying for city
water."
South Bay Mayor Clarence An-
thony agrees with Mayor Sasser's
sentiment.
"We want to ensure that our
citizens, have the same quality
of water as anyone else in Palm
Beach County," Mayor Anthony
said. "The regional water treat-
ment plant will do that for our
citizens."
What local officials realize,
however, is that there appears to
be a high cost in getting the new
regional water treatment plant
going.
"By the time it's over with, we'll
be pushing $60 million, almost
twice the amount anticipated six
years ago," Mayor Sasser said.
According to Mayor Sasser, the


will include modifications to
the drainage structure near the
Glades Central High School inter-
section, a new sidewalk near S.R.
715, new traffic signals and of
course, repaving of the highway
between South Bay and Belle
Glade, among others.
Belle Glade Vice-Mayor Mary
Kendall seemed happy with the
proposed new landscape of S.R.
80.
"The plans seem to indicate
that we're going to have a very
scenic route that connects our
two towns," the vice-mayor said.
"The added sidewalks should en-
able pedestrians to travel safely."
To ensure safety for everyone,


original agreement was that the
cities of South Bay, Belle Glade
and Pahokee were each going
to contribute to the costs of the
regional water treatment plant,
along with the county and the
water district.
So far, according to the Paho-
kee mayor, the county has con-
tributed approximately $10 mil-
lion to the water treatment plant,
with the water district contribut-
ing another $11 million towards
the project.
That was about five years ago,
when the water treatment plant
was estimated to cost about $30
million, according to Mayor Sass-
er.
Unfortunately, according to
Mayor Sasser, the shortage of raw
materials and rising fuel prices
proved to be contributing factors
that apparently increased the cost
of completing the construction of
the new regional water treatment
plant.
"The cost of the regional water
treatment plant escalated faster
than our ability to find additional
funding sources," Mayor Sasser
said.
According to Mayor Sasser,
the cities of Pahokee and South
Bay are each responsible for $4
million toward the construction,
while Belle Glade is responsible
for about $17 million of the costs.
Belle Glade City Manager Bill
Underwood said, however, that
the city is currently in debt of
more that $15 million on its own
existing water treatment plant.
Nevertheless, although the city
manager said that Belle Glade
is on the hook for about 20 per-
cent of the unpaid portion of the
regional water treatment plant,
he is willing to work with all nec-
essary parties to get the project
completed.
"It is a very good thing that
Belle Glade will have absolutely
superb water," Mr. Underwood
said. "It's my goal to work with all


the driveway connections and
sidewalks will be upgraded to
meet all current safety standards,
according to FDOT representa-
tives.
The construction, slated to
cost approximately $3.7 million,
will take approximately one year
to be completed.
Belle Glade commissioner
Shelly Miller hopes that residents
will be patient throughout the
project.
"I know it will be an incon-
venience for citizens but the end
results will be great," Commis-
sioner Miller said. "It's a good
project, so we just have to live
through the inconveniences."


of the agencies to gather as much
as possible in grants so citizens
will not be burdened with addi-
tional debts."
The tri-cities should take some
solace in the fact that on Nov. 6,
the United States House of Repre-
sentatives voted to override Presi-
dent George W Bush's veto of the
Water Resources Development
Act of 2007.
According to U.S. Representa-
tive Alcee Hastings (D-Mirimar),
the Water Resources Develop-
ment Act Conference Report will
authorize $7.5 million for funding
for the construction of the Lake
Region Water Treatment Plant
being built to serve Belle Glade,
Pahokee and South Bay.
"This is a huge win for Florida
and an even bigger win for the
people of my District." U.S. Rep-
resentative Hastings said. "This is
long overdue, and I am euphoric
that my House colleagues voted
with me to override President
Bush's short-sighted and ideologi-
cally-driven veto."
Mayor Sasser seemed relieved
with the news.
"If we get the full $7.5 million
from the federal government,
then it will reduce our expenses
for the regional water treatment
plant," Mayor Sasser said. "Now
we only need to find sources for
about $20 million. Every little bit
helps."
Mayor Sasser said that the city
of Pahokee is working with the
U.S Department of Agriculture
to cover its portion of the unpaid
water bill.
But the mayor added that he
still would like to see more federal
funding come in for the project.
"Our position is that the feds
still need to kick in more money
for our water treatment plant,"
Mayor Sasser said.
Mayor Anthony hopes that
along with the federal govern-
ment, the county and state could
continue to work with the tri-cit-


Fernando V Gomez, the direc-
tor of civil and highway design
for Bolton, Perez and Associates -
- which is working on the project
-- is looking forward to the final
design.
"The Department of Transpor-
tation will pro,\de a safe trans-
portation system that ensures the
mobility of people and goods,
enhances economic prosperity
and preserves the quality of our
environment and communities,"
Mr. Gomez said.

ies in obtaining more funding to
complete the project.
"We anticipate that next year,
the water treatment plant will
come online," Mayor Anthony
said. "One of the concerns we
have is that there is a shortfall of
the $4 million we have to con-
tinue to work on finding money
from the state and federal govern-
ment. We need to find a way to
offset the shortfall that. we have
not been able to locate and that's
by working with our county."

NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL DIABETES MONTH
Diabetes affects your body from head to toes. This includes your
eyes. The most common and most serious eye complication of dia-
betes is diabetic retinopathy, which may result in poor vision or
even blindness.
"Retinopathy" is the medical term for damage to the tiny blood
vessels (capillaries) that nourish the retina, the tissue at the back of
your eye that captures light and relays information to your brain.
The high blood sugar,levels associated with diabetes often affect
these blood vessels.
Nearly half of people with known diabetes have some degree of
diabetic retinopathy. The longer you have diabetes, the more likely
it is you'll develop diabetic retinopathy. Initially, most people with
diabetic retinopathy experience only mild vision problems. But, the
condition can worsen and threaten your vision.
The threat of blindness is scary. But, with early detection and
treatment, the risk of severe vision loss from diabetic retinopathy is
small. At Family Eye Care, we provide dilated eye examinations to
thoroughly assess ocular health to prevent the development of ocu-
lar and medical complications of diabetes. Please call our office at
(863) 675-0761 for more information or to set-up and appoint-
ment.

Tiger Football


Tampa Catholic wallops Tigers in playoffs

By Jeff Barwick . -


Clewiston's 2007 season
ended Friday night at Cane Field
in a game that was decided way
before the final
whistle blew in
the playoff dis-
trict semi-final
match up with
Tampa Catho- 0 ..fl.... 1'"l
lic. The Crusaders proved true to
scouting reports as they controlled
the ball and played tough defense
and shut out the Tigers 33-0. For
Clewiston, the loss ended a dif-
ficult season as reflected by their
5-7 record.
The Tigers, clearly outmatched
in quantity, put a quality team on
the field to begin the game. The
problems quickly surfaced when
Tampa Catholic kept running in
fresh players while the same ba-
sic Tigers were on the field con-
sistently. The Crusaders dressed
51 players for the game while the
Tigers could only suit up 28 play-
ers.
The Tigers were keeping the
'Crusaders in offensive check
,early in the game. Emotions got
'high when Tiger return specialist
Zack Waddell was creamed on
a helmet-to-helmet tackle as he
was attempting to catch an early
first period Crusader punt. The
blow was so hard that it knocked
his helmet off and he was laid flat
on the turf. Miraculously, Wad-
dell was able to get to his feet
:and leave the field under his own
'power and to return to the game
shortly thereafter. Shamefully, the
best the officials could offer was a
.five yard penalty and a Crusader
re-kick for them not allowing
Waddell time to field the punt, to-
tally forgetting about high school
sports safety and sportsmanship
in ignoring the flagrant spearing
incident. As the Tigers punted
away the ball after the following
possession, tight end Willie Arm-
strong got involved with a Cru-
sader player and Armstrong was
.ejected -from the game halfway
through the opening quarter. Al-
ready short on players, the Tigers
lost one of their stalwarts and any
hope of staying in the game de-
parted then and there.
Tampa Catholic took the ball
and drove to the Tiger 17 where
they were stopped and forced to
settle for a 35-yard field goal by
Matt McLaughlin. In the second
period, the Crusaders scored an
early period touchdown when
Will Greaves grabbed a blocked

Tiger Darris Hughes shakes loose as he reels off a 70 yard run.


Fullback Alex Rubio rambles for a 31 yard gain on a trap play.


Isandro Marquez punt and raced
25yards. Defensively, theyheld the
Tigers to one first down and only
one first down. That first down
came on a 70-yard breakaway
run by tailback Darris Hughes
but he got pulled down from be-
hind at the Crusader 7 yard line.
But the Tigers couldn't convert as
a Marquez pass was intercepted.
From their 11-yard line, the Cru-
saders marched the length of the
field in 16 plays to score with just
under a minute remaining in the
half. The touchdown came when
wideout Eric Gerken caught a
8-yard pass ,from. Quarterback
Christian Green as the Crusaders
led 17-0 at intermission.
Things got no better for the
Tigers in the second half. The
Crusaders scored in the third
when Greaves picked off a Mar-


quez pass and trotted 25 yards
for a score. In the final period,
McLaughlin hit a 28-yard field
goal and back-up quarterback
Connor Louis rushed 6 yards for
the final touchdown. Prior to
that, Linebacker Colin Ricketts
was also ejected from the game
after committing a personal foul
penalty out of sheer frustration.
The Tigers offense just could
not get on track. Other than
Hughes' 70-yard scamper, Clew-
iston only gained 90 more yards
in 33 carries. The Tigers inability
pass the ball reached'a season
low point with no completions
on 8 tries and 3 interceptions.
Defensively, the Tigers played
out their collective hearts. Line-
backer Alex Rubio had 10 tackles
and an assist. But, with virtually
all of the offensive starters also


seeing significant time on defense
it was just a matter of physical
exhaustion and having given the
Crusaders two easy scores on the
blocked punt and interceptions
returns by Greaves.
For the season, the Tigers
showed a respectable running of-
fense. From the tailback position,
they got over 2,000 yards of rush-
ing with Colin Ricketts getting
1,088 yards and Darris Hughes
adding 1,047. Clewiston averaged
5.9 yards per rush on the year but
the absence of a passing game
took its toll on the offense.

The next big holiday: what it's really about


(or should be)

By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
Now that Thanksgiving is
past, there is another big holi-
day coming soon.
In the interest of "political
correctness" many people will
say "Happy Holidays" instead of
"Merry Christmas" or something
with a more spiritual tone to it.
The Christian holiday is special
because it is about the Incarna-
tion: God becoming human.
Not too many years ago, I
shared in a question and-answer
session with some health pro-
fessionals and someone asked,
"What is the difference between
a psychiatrist and a psycholo-


gist?" I imagined an answer that
could have run on for hours;
talking about training, philoso-
phies of personalities, healing
techniques, un- -
derstandings of
human beings
and on and on. _
Instead, the doc- '
tor that chose
to answer the
question said
simply "A psy-
chiatrist goes Samuel S.
in deeper, stays Thomas
in longer and
comes out dirtier!" We laughed,
but there was some truth to his
answer. With that theory came
healing. As I thought about it,
I remembered someone else
who went in, stayed awhile;
was affected by it and the of-


fered Himself so that human-
ity might be healed-saved-re-
deemed-given eternal life. That
is Incarnation: that God became
human so that He could "go in"
and stay awhile. He stayed long
enough to accomplish His min-
istry, touching lives and being
touched by the people He met
and served. That is what Christ-
mas is about: incarnation.
Christmas is a story about a
birth and all of the difficulties and
complications that surrounded
it. It is a story about a human
and not-so-human infant, par-
ents, visitors, politics, difficul-
ties, threats and fears, persecu-
tion, and with more hardships
than could be imagined today.
The human life came into the
world in difficulties and ended
with them. Jesus was to be


marked literally and figuratively
for having come here. "Merry
Christmas" is not all sweetness
and light; but about the triumph
of life here even with all of its'
difficulties, setbacks and trage-
dies. Each year the story is read
from the Gospel of Luke (Chap-
ter 2: verses 1-20).
I began this season by think-
ing about this next big holiday
ahead of us and wonder about
the "disconnect" that I see and
have seen for many years. All
too often there is no connection
between all of the planning, the
gift buying, the merchants wor-
rying, the trips that are planned,
the concern over gas prices, the
meals and who will come to
visit, the sending of cards, the
trees and decorations, and what
it is all about. "All of the above"


is about the Incarnation; about
God Himself coming here and
what it all means. It is about the
beginning of a new hope and
promise for all of us because
He came, stayed awhile, was
affected and healed humanity.
In the midst of all of the busy-
ness, it is so easy to forget why
we have "Christmas" in the first
place. There is a connection
between the gathering of toys
and food to share (and the real
tragedy when someone steals
the toys and food), and the re-
ally thinking hard about just
what to buy someone special,
the invitations to share and the
special meals. It is a way of pay-
ing tribute to the One who has
given us priceless gifts, and who
has shared our meals, and who
has welcomed us by His being


here. For "Christmas" to be re-
ally "Christmas", there must be
a connection between what we
do now and what was done at
that first Christmas. I thank God
for my life and the lives of those
around me; the lives of others I
have met and the lives of those I
have yet to meet; the incarnate,
the "in the flesh" representa-
tives that bear His image. My be-
ing here is a special gift that God
has personally given to me, as
with all of us. It is ever so special
because God Himself "taking on
the very nature of a servant be-
ing made in full human likeness,
and being found in appearance
as a man, He humbled Him-
self and became obedient unto
death ((Philippians 2: 7-8)" and
that's. what Christmas is really
all about!

Seems everyone is in denial


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Let's face it! Everyone is in
denial! Our present course is go-
ing to take us straight down the
drain, the same as with all the old
Great Nations in History. We'll
wise up just before we get to the
great falls, but too late then! The
rowers can lay down their-oars
and let the current do the rest.
You're not going to like losing.
President Bush did make a bad
mistake in the war on terrorism.
But the mistake was not his deci-
sion to go to war in Iraq. Bush's
mistake came in his belief that
this country is the same one his
father fought for in WWII. It is
not!
Back then, we had just come
out of a vicious depression. The
country was steeled by the hard-
ship of that depression, but we
still believed fervently in this
country. We knew that we had
elected our leaders, so it was,
our duty to back those leaders.
Therefore, when the war broke
out we came together, rallied be-
,hind, and stuck with our leaders,
'whether we had voted for them
or not or whether the war was
going badly or not. And war was
just as distasteful and the anguish
just as great then as it is today.
Often there were more casual-
ties in one day in WW II than we
have had in the entire Iraq war.
,But that did not matter. We stuck
with the President because it was
our patriotic duty. Americans put
aside their differences in WW II
and worked together to win that
war. Everyone from every strata
of society, from young to old
pitched in! Small children pulled
little wagons around to gather
scrap metal for the war effort.
Grade school students saved their
pennies to buy stamps for war
bonds to help the effort. I won a
War Bond in a Halloween Penny
Carnival in Betsy Layne, Ky. Men
who were too old or medically


4F lied about their age or condi-
tion trying their best to join the
military. Women doubled their
work to keep things at home.
Harsh rationing of everything
from gasoline to soap, to but-
ter was imposed, yet there was
very little complaining. You never
heard prominent people on the
radio' belittling the President. In-
terestingly enough in those days
there were no fat cat actors and
entertainers who ran off to visit
and fawn over dictators of hostile
countries and complain to them
about our President. Instead,
they made upbeat movies that
are still aired, and entertained our
troops to help the troops' morale.
And a bunch even enlisted! And
imagine this: Teachers in schools
actually started the day off with
a Pledge of Allegiance and with
prayers for our country and our
troops! Back then, no newspa-
pers would have dared point out
certain weak spots in our cities
where bombs could be set off
to cause the maximum damage.
No newspaper would have dared
complain about what we were
doing to catch spies. A newspa-
per would have been laughed out
of existence if it had complained
that German or Japanese soldiers
were being "tortured" by being
forced to wear women's under-
wear, or subjected to interroga-
tions by a "woman", or being
scared by a dog or did not have
air conditioning.
There were a lot of things dif-
ferent back then. We were not
subjected to a constant bombard-
ment of pornography, perversion
and promiscuity in movies or on
radio. We did not have legions
of crackheadss," dope pushers
and armed gangs roaming the
streets.
No, President Bush did not
make a mistake in his handling
of terrorism. He made a mistake
of believing that we still had the
courage and fortitude of our fa-


others. He believed that this was
still the country that our fathers
so dearly to preserve. It is not the
same country! It is now a cross
between Sodom and Gomorrah
and the Land of Oz! We did unite
for a short time after 911, but out
attitude changed when we found
out that defending our country
would require some sacrifices.
We are in great danger! The
terrorists are fanatic Muslims.
They believe that it is okay, even
their duty, to kill anyone who will
not convert to Islam. It has been
estimated that about one-third
or over three hundred million
Muslims are sympathetic to the
terrorist cause...Hitler and Tojo
combined did not have nearly
that many potential recruits.
So, we either win it or loose it,
and you're not going to like los-
ing! America is not at war. The
military is at war. America is at
the mall looking for bargains for
Christmas.


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
According to the Alaska De-
partment of Fish and Game,
both male and female reindeer
grow antlers in the summer
each year, but male reindeer
drop their antlers at the be-
ginning of winter, usually late
November to mid-December.
Female reindeer, however, re-
tain their antlers until after they
give birth in the spring. There-
fore, according to every histori-
cal rendition depicting Santa's
reindeer, all of them, from Ru-
dolph to Donner and Blitzen,
had to be a female. Someone
commented, "We should've
known this when they were
able to find their way," inter-
esting.
Interesting also is the fact
that the Christmas season
highlights a woman God used
to help the world find its way.
For almost 500 years, the
prophecies of God had said
that Messiah would be born
in Bethlehem. There was a
problem, however, Joseph and
Mary lived 90 miles away in
Nazareth. One of the amazing
aspects of the first Christmas
was that Mary would travel
by donkey from Nazareth to
Bethlehem in her ninth month
of pregnancy or that Joseph
would lead her. I've traveled
the Bethlehem road by bus. It's
a narrow winding road through


hills and mountains with steep
cliffs and deep valleys. It's
a hard enough trip to drive,
let alone to
walk with a
very pregnant
wife.
What God
does to get
Mary and
Joseph to .
Bethlehem is '.
amazing. As John
the Scriptures Hicks
tell us in Luke
2, "In those days Caesar Au-
gustus issued a decree that a
census should be taken of the
entire Roman world -- and ev-
eryone went to his town to reg-
ister. So Joseph also went up
from the town of Nazareth in
Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem,
the town of David, because he.
belonged to the house and line
of David."
The man seemingly making
all this happen is the Roman
Emperor, Caesar Augustus.
History tells us that he was not
a very nice man. He was, in
many ways, a monster. But it
is Caesar Augustus who turns
out to be the bit player in the
divine drama. He thinks he's
flexing his muscle with the
universal census, but this most
powerful man on earth is only
an unsuspecting instrument in
the hands of a sovereign God.
This should give us spe-
cial encouragement! God will
get His destiny couple to His


destiny place, even if He has
to move an entire empire to
do it! The Christmas story is
God's powerful statement that
God's plans are unstoppable!
The good news is that we are
included in His plans. "I know
the plans I have for you," says
the Lord, "plans to prosper you
and not harm you, plans to
give you hope and a future."
(Jeremiah 29:11)
In your current situation,
it might seem that there is no
way things can turn out right
for you. The money isn't there,
your health isn't there, the rela-
tionship looks impossible, the
job frustrations are mounting,
the mountain isn't moving,
and the answer isn't coming. It
looks as if there's no way for
things to work out, not enough
time for an answer to come.
We need to remember that
we belong to the God who,
with the stroke of an evil man's
pen, moved an empire to place
Joseph and Mary right where
they were supposed to be. And
God will get His plans for us
accomplished even if He has to
move another empire or god-
less instrument to do so.
Jesus was born in Bethle-
hem. Just getting Him there
was a miracle! So relax in the
strong arms of the God of Beth-
lehem who will move whatever
He has to move to finish what
He has started in our lives!
That's at the root of what we
celebrate at Christmas!
