City'

Pahokee happy
with results

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE When family dis-
cussions take place, it's refresh-
ing when something positive
comes out of it.
The close-knit city should be
proud of what the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office has done
since its arrival less than two
years ago.


crime stats released


The 2007 crime statistics are
in and Reinaldo Alonso, a lieu-
tenant and the District 12 com-
mander of the sheriff's office,
was happy to address the results
at the Feb. 26 commission meet-
ing.
According to the Fla. De-'
partment of Law Enforcement
(FDLE), overall robbery cases
saw a 19 percent reduction last
year -- from 21 to just 17 robber-
ies. Also, burglary and larceny
offenses were reduced by 28.6
and 10.4 percent, respectively.
Overall, criminal activity for


2007 was reduced by 10.5 per-
.cent --a decrease from 488 to
just 437 reported offense, ac-
cording to the FDLE.
"What I told the commission-
ers is that when I took command
of District 12 last year, burglaries
and property crimes were big is-
sues here," Lt. Alonso said. "We
exceeded our expectations, with
the combined efforts of the city
manager, the city attorney, the
commissioners and our deputies

Lt. Alonso noted during the
commission meeting that in the


Celebration rally: Commissioner unveils agenda


Johnson


speaks to


citizens

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY -- A change is
about to take place at the cross-
roads of South Florida.
Linda Johnson, the Glades-
area NAACP president, will be-
come South Bay's newest city
commissioner, effective March
18.
After 24 years as a city
commissioner, Ms. Johnson's
would-be opponent, Mayor
Clarence Anthony, decided to
give up his post.
The surprise decision would
not be complete without a cel-
ebration rally, which took place
on March 1 at the Tanner Park
building.
People showed up for the
celebration. Refreshments
were served at the rally, includ-
ing hot dogs, chips, and a vari-
ety of drinks.
"We decided to go for-
ward with the campaign, even.
though we don't have an elec-
tion in South Bay on March 11,"
Ms. Johnson told the audience.
SMs. Johnson made it clear to
the attendees that she doesn't
want to be labeled as a politi-
cian. In fact, the soon-to-be
commissioner said that she
doesn't want to make politics a
lifetime commitment.
"I didn't personally want to
become a commissioner but
I feel it was something God
wanted me to do when I was in
my private time with Him," Ms.
Johnson said.
Ms. Johnson revealed that
as a South Bay resident, she felt
like there was more that was
needed to be done.
According to Ms. Johnson's

Linda Johnson held a celebratory rally in South Bay to
thank residents who supported her in her campaign for
city commissioner.


campaign, her platform will en-
sure citizen, intergovernmental
and business input to bring
quality city services, while
building stronger relations with
all levels of government.
"This is not a seat that's my
seat," Ms. Johnson said. "It's a
community seat, I'm not your
typical commissioner. Through
the seat, I'll inform citizens of
every issue in the city from a
city standpoint."
One thing Ms. Johnson
would like to see happen in her
time as a commissioner is for
the city to be able to annex land
as far east as S.R. 715 and as far
south as Okeelanta -- about 10
miles south of the city limits.
Ultimately, Ms. Johnson
realizes that proper communi-
cation with the sugar industry
and the state government is
essential for her dream to be


realized.
"Whatever we do in South
Bay, I believe that Belle Glade
and Pahokee will follow,"
Ms. Johnson declared to the
crowd.
Ms. Johnson said that she is
willing to work with the rest of
the commissioners in trying to
move the city forward. Making
it clear that she does not have a
personal agenda, Ms. Johnson
let the participants know that
she'll provide information that
she knows and hopes to get the
commissioners' support.
"If we make a decision think-
ing about the people, then no
one will get upset," Ms. John-
son emphasized to the audi-
ence: "I'm not a pushy person
and whatever my fellow com-
missioners see fit, I will follow.

A promising track season


Glades Day Gators
boys and girls teams
look for an edge

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Build it and
they will come.
For the Glades Day Gators
track program, the application
has served them well.
In only its fifth year of exis-
tence, the boys team went on to
become the District 13-1A cham-
pions last year and produced
a Class 1A gold medalist in An-
drew Joseph, who won the long
jump with 23 feet at the Class


1A state championship meet in
SWinter Haven.
The boys 4X100 relay team
also qualified for the state meet
last year.
As for the girls team, it fin-
ished sixth in the District 13-1A
meet last season. This year, how-
ever, the girls hope to have a bet-
ter showing in the district meet.
With 18 girls on the team,
consisting of mostly Seventh and
Eighth graders, here are three to
watch out for:
*Alex Lynn, a freshman, will
be competing in the 100 and 200
meter hurdle races, where she,
usually finishes in the top four
during meets. ,
*Eighth-grader Connor Boss


will be on the 4X800 meter relay
team and compete in the 800
meter race. Her goal is to record
under three minutes in the long-
distance event.
*Seventh-grader Heather
Burch, considered the fastest
newcomer on the team, will par-
ticipate in the 100 meter dash,
the 200 meter dash and the
4X100 relay team.
"We're very young with only
three returning starters," said An-
gie Lohmann, the fifth-year girls
head coach. "We hope the team
remains interested so they'll be
able to get more competitive as
they get older."

past, area mobile home parks
experienced problems with bur-
glaries. Now, according to the
lieutenant, with deputies han-
dling 24-hour law enforcement
in the area, the crime there has
been mostly eliminated.
Lt. Alonso credits Mimi McAn-
drews, the current interim city
manager and city attorney, for
assisting with the establishment
of ordinances and a protocol to
follow through with enforce-
ment and prosecution. '
For example, ordinances
have been established to curb


violence within. the city's parks,
namely Martin Luther King Jr.
Park. Also established is a crime
prevention and enforcement
street team, which has been as-
signed to at-risk areas such as
Martin Luther King'Jr. park and
Rardin Avenue.
"The credit to this reduction
in crime goes to the deputies
on the streets that are the ones
serving the citizens of Pahokee,"
Lt. Alonso said. "These depu-
ties have accepted the directives

Highway accident
leaves one dead

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WESTERN -PALM BEACH
COUNTY Doris Gipson is used
to meeting at her porch every
morning with her grandson,
Derrick A. Clark.
The two would use those
opportunities as a bonding ex-
perience.
Ms. Gipson won't be able to
do that anymore.
On Thursday .Feb, 28 at
2:45 a.m the I.s-lear-old Belle
Glade man was struck and
killed by a semi-truck on U.S.
Highway 27.


According to information
provided by the Florida High-
way Patrol, the victim was driv-
ing southbound on U.S. 27 in
the Outside lane, 12 miles south
of South Bay. His 1985 Pon-
tiac vehicle was stopped on the
highway for unknown reasons
and observed a 1999 Interna-
tional semi-truck approaching
his vehicle, officials said.
After exiting his Pontiac and
trying to run eastbound on. U.S.
27, the driver of the semi-truck,
66-year-old Patsey L. Dowdle of
Tampa, saw the individual run-

Did You Know?


By Dale Conyers
Peel a l.ll..i ,. II in the bot-
tom and yotu won't have to pick
the little I"'ii I tl things" off of it,
That's how the primates do it,
Take \,ol bananas apart when
you 't home i'on ii the store. If
you leave them connected at the
stenll, rI\ lpIen-faster.
Sto e ouri opened chunks of
cheese in aluminum foil. It will
stay resh much lon;r', and not
mold!
Peppers with 3 bumps on the
bottom are sweeter and better for
eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on
the bottom are firmer and better
for cooking.
Add a teaspoon of water when
frying ground beef. It will help
pull the grease away from the
meat while cooking.
To really make scrambled eggs
or omelets rich add a couple of
spoonfuls of sour cream, cream
cheese, or heavy cream in and
then beat them up.
For a cool brownie treat, make
brownies as directed. Melt Andes
mints in < B R>double boiler and
pour over warm brownies. Let set
for a wonderful minty frosting.
Add garlic immediately to a
recipe if you want a light taste of
garlic and at the end of the recipe
if your want a stronger taste of
garlic.
Leftover snickers bars from
Halloween make a delicious des-
sert. Simple chop them up with
the food chopper. Peel, core and
slice a few apples. Place them
in a baking dish and sprinkle the
chopped candy bars over the
apples. Bake at 350 for 15 min-
utes!!! Serve alone or with vanilla
ice cream.


1. Reheat Pizza
Hent up leftover pizza in a non-
stick Ldl.I onl op of the stove,
set heat to 0medlow and heat till
warm. This keeps the crust crispy.
No -, >\ micro pizza, I saw this
on the cooking channel and it re-
,il\ \ >nks
2. Easy Deviled Eggs
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip
lock bag. Seal, mash till they are
all broken up. Add remainder of
n'i~diiils., reseal, keep mash-
ing it up mixing thoroughly cut
the tip of the baggy, squeeze mix-
tureinto egg. Just throw bag away
when done easy clean up.
3. Expanding Frosting
When you buy a container of
cake frosting from the store, whip
it with your mixer for a few min-
utes. You can double it in size.
You get to frost more cake/cup-
cakes with the same amount. You
also eat less sugar and calories
per serving.
4. Re-heating refrigerated
bread
To warm biscuits, pancakes,
or muffins that were refrigerated,
place them in a microwave with a
cup of water. The increased mois-
ture will keep the food moist and
help it reheat faster.
5. Newspaper weeds away
Start putting in your plants,
work the nutrients in your soil.
Wet newspapers put layers
around the plants overlapping as
you go cover with
mulch and forget about weeds.
Weeds will get through some gar-
dening plastic they will not get
through wet newspapers.
6. Broken Glass
Use a wet cotton ball or Q-t
ip to pick up the small shards of

glass you can't see easily.
7. No More Mosquitoes
Place a dryer sheet in your
pocket. It will keep the mosqui-
toes away.
8. Squirrel Away!
To keep squirrels from eating
your plants sprinkle your plants
with cayenne pepper. The cay-
enne pepper doesn't hurt the
plant and the squirrels won't
come near it.
9. Flexible vacuum
To get something out of a heat
register or under the fridge add an
, empty paper towel roll or empty
gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It
can be bent or flattened to get in
narrow openings.
10. Reducing Static Cling
Pin a small safety pin to the
seam of your slip and you will not
have a clingy skirt or dress. Same
thing works with slacks that cling
..when wearing panty hose. Place
pin in seam of slacks and -- ta da!
-- static is gone.
11. Measuring Cups
Before you pour sticky sub-
stances into a measuring cup, fill
with hot water. Dump out the hot


water, but don't dry cup. Next,
add your ingredient, such as pea-
nut butter, and watch how easily
it comes right out.
12. Foggy Windshield?
Hate foggy windshields? Buy a
chalkboard eraser and keep it in
the glove box of your car. When
the windows fog, rub with the
eraser! Works better than a cloth!
13. Reopening envelope
If you seal an envelope and
then realize you forgot to include
something inside, just place your
sealed envelope in the freezer for
an hour or two. Viola! It unseals
easily.
14. Conditioner
Use your hair conditioner to
shave your legs. It's a lot cheap-
er than shaving cream and
leaves your legs really smooth.
It's also a great way to use up
the conditioner you bought but
didn't like when you tried it in
your hair...
15. Goodbye Fruit Flies
To get rid of pesky fruit flies,
take a small glass fill it 1/2" with
Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops
of dish washing liquid, mix well.


You will find those flies drawn to
the cup and gone forever!
16. Get Rid of Ants
Put small piles of cornmeal
where you see ants. They eat it,
take it "home," can't digest it so
it kills them. It may take a week
or so, especially if it rains, but
it works & you don't have the
worry about pets or small chil-
dren being harmed!
17. Infor about clothes
dryers
The heating unit went out on
my dryer! The gentleman that
fixes things around the house
for us told us that he wanted to
show us something and I really
tried this and did it. Mine did as
it says he went overto the dryer
and pulled out the lint filter. It
was clean. (I always' clean the
lint from the filter after every
load clothes.) He told us that he
wanted to show us something;
he took the filter over to the
sink, ran hot water over it. The
lint filter is made of a mesh ma-
terial -.I'm sure you know what
your dryer's lint filter looks like.
well,...the hot water just sat on


top of the mesh! It didn't go
through
it at all! He told us that dryer
sheets cause a film over that
mesh that's what burns out the
heating unit. You can't SEE the
film, but it's there. It's what is in
the dryer sheets to make your
clothes soft and static free -- that
nice fragrance too, you know
how they can feel waxy
when you take them out of
the box, well this stuff builds up
on your clothes and on your lint
screen. This is also what causes
dryer units to catch fire & po-
tentially burn your house down
with it! He said the best way to
keep your dryer working for a
very long time (& to keep your
electric bill lower) is to take
that filter out & wash it with
hotsoapy water & an old tooth-
brush (or other brush) at least
every six months. He said that
makes the life of the dryer at
least twice as long! How about
that!?! Learn something new ev-
eryday! I certainly didn't know
dryer sheets would do that. So, I
thought I'd share!


It's community. It's banking.


It's a celebration.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of
what happens in our community IS good.)

How are we doing?

Letters to the Editor


Touchscreen voting machines to be sold


Secretary of State Kurt S.
Browning announced plans to
contract with a Tampa recycler
to pick up and remarket or resell
the electronic touch screens in
Florida.
"Creative Recycling provides
an environmentally friendly way
for us to recycle the electronic
machines," said Secretary Brown-
ing. "This is the best option for


Florida as we move forward in
implementing a paper based, op-
tical scan voting system."
Creative Recycling, a major
electronics recycler, will be re-
sponsible for picking up the touch
screen machines from 15 Florida
counties.
Once the machines are on site
in Tampa, the first priority will
be to remarket the machines to


other jurisdictions in the United
States and in the world. Next,
Creative Recycling will de-manu-
facture the touch screen and sell
the usable parts, for example, the
wheels on the voting booths or
the screen of the machine, after
all components are remarketed,
the remaining parts will be re-
cycled.
Creative Recycling Systems,


Inc. was founded in 1994 with the
mission of providing private com-
panies, local, state and federal
government and institutions with
electronics recycling solutions
that represent a viable, economi-
cal alternative to environmental
contamination. Creative offers an
efficient, cost-effective way to re-
cycle electronic equipment and
minimize liability risks.


No endorsement
from Hastings
Dear Don:
Over the last two weeks, I
have spoken with many of our
shared constituents regarding a
multitude of matters, including
the many elections occurring this
year at all levels of government.
We have talked about the issues
facing all of our communities and
how I can be most helpful in ad-
vancing their causes.
After much thought, consid-
eration, and consultation, 1 have
decided not to endorse you or
any of the candidates competing
in your upcoming election. This
decision is based on my belief
that I can'best help the people
of Belle Glade at this moment in
time by not endorsing any can-
didate in this election. Instead, I
will work to support the winner
of your election while advancing
Belle Glade's interests in Wash-
ington, DC.
Regrettably, the letter dated
Feb. 7, provided to you by my
campaign staff expressing my
endorsement for your upcoming
re-election was not authorized
by me. As is the case sometimes,
staff gets ahead of us. This is un-
fortunately one of those instanc-
es. As such, I ask that you do not
use that letter, my name, or the
names of my staff in your cam-
paign, including on any campaign
literature, in phone bank scripts,
on the Internet, or in any other
campaign-related materials.
I have addressed this situation
with the appropriate staff and
have dealt with it directly. I do
apologize for any inconvenience
this may have caused to your
campaign.
I look forward to working with
you on issues of mutual concern
as you complete your current


term as Mayor and wish you luck
on your campaign for re-election.
With warm regards, I remain,
Sincerely,
Alcee L. Hastings
Member of Congress

Reflection on
community
Belle Glade has an election
coming up on March 11. I think it
is worthwhile to reflect on where
the community stands at this
point in time.
We have the regional water
plant under construction as well
as ground has been broken on
the new hospital. These are posi-
tives for Belle Glade, as well as all
of Western Palm Beach County.
On a more local basis, a man-
agement contract has been ap-
proved for the golf course. This
places the course in experienced
hands and will save the city some-
thing like $300,000 per year based
on recent experience. We look
forward to continued good news
from that area.
Improvements are underway
at the marine/campground area
which are much needed after the
'o5 hurricane. This should also
aid the golf course.
The city has also secured addi-
tional monies which I understand
will go toward refurbishing the
civic center and park improve-
ments. Again, some of this. is
damage from the '05 hurricane.
I think our commissioners and
manager are to be complimented
on the observed progress and
hope more will follow. I would
urge support for those up for
election to continue in this same
progressive manner.

School district recognizes domestic partners


West Palm Beach -- The Palm
Beach County School Board


Sincerely, unanimously adopted a policy re-
hompson Jr. defining "family" to include em-
ployees' domestic partners and
their children.
"This pro-family policy recog-
S nizes employees' domestic part-
ners and their children is a signifi-
cant step forward," said Ranch
- Hoch, President of the Palm Beach
- *. County Human Rights Council.
Thd Council has been the lead-
ing advocate for domestic partner
benefits in Palm Beach County for
almost twenty years.


While the School District of
Palm Beach County has recog-
nized domestic partners as fam-
ily members for several years,
the vote marks the first time the
School Board has included the'
children of employees' domestic
partners.
In 2005, the second district first
offered employees the option of
purchasing health insurance for
their domestic partners. Currently,
46 employees purchase domestic
partner health insurance from the
school district.
However, unlike all other pub-


lic employers in Florida offering
domestic partner insurance, the
School District of Palm Beach
County does not allow its em-
ployees to purchase health insur-
ance for domestic partners' chil-
dren. "The School Board's newly
expanded definition of families
gives us hope that the school dis-
trict will soon allow employees to
purchase insurance for the chil-
dren being raised in their homes,"
said Mr. Hoch.
Public employers in Palm
Beach County whick allow em-
ployees to insure domestic part-


ners and domestic partners' chil-
dren include Palm Beach County,
the Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office, the Office of the Clerk and
Comptroller, the Office, of the Tax
Collector, the Office of the Prop-
erty Appraiser, the Office of the
Supervisor of Elections, the Office
of the Public Defender, the Port
of Palm Beach, the Palm Beach
County School District, the Solid
Waste Authority, Palm Tran, as
well as the cities of Delray Beach,
Lake Worth, West Palm Beach,
and the town of Jupiter.

By John Hoblick
President of Flor
,Farm Bureau Fed
' What is the future
agriculture industry?
I am often asked qu
'similar to this and I ha'
great deal of thought.
SAs president of the
general agriculture c
representing 143,000

helps Flori(

force into the 21st Century and,
ida we want. to share that vision with
aeration Gov. Charlie Crist, legislators, and
Bernie Machen, president of the
of Florida's University of Florida.
Agriculture's bright future
estions very doesn't come without challenges.
ve given it a Many of these challenges will re-
quire collaboration.
state's only Which brings me to the Univer-
,rganization sity of Florida's Institute of Food
member and Agriculture Sciences (UF/
Sa bright fu- IFAS) and the threat of substantial
budget cuts during this year's leg-
tapped to islative session.
up of CEOs We all understand that the state

vision. The across the board. Specific figures
task force are not yet available, but most
hat agricul- certainly UF/IFAS will face cuts; so
of Florida's will every other program funded
who serve by the Florida Legislature.
agriculture My concern is that programs
it economic related to agriculture not be cut


la agriculture and all Floridians


disproportionately relative to other
programs, and Farm Bureau con-
tinues to work to make it clear to
legislators and administrators that
disproportionate cuts could dimin-
ish the viability of the agriculture
industry, which remains Florida's
second-largest economic contrib-
utor.
The research and Cooperative
Extension Service components are
major resources that benefit not
only Florida agricultural producers
but every Floridian. With a unique
climate and over 280 agricultural
commodities produced in Florida,
UF/IFAS provides needed research
and development for this industry.
For the vast majority of these com-
modities no other university or col-
lege is doing the needed research.
Florida's unique climate creates
distinct and separate research and
technology transfer needs.
As the crops have changed, the


university's services to the industry
have adjusted accordingly. Within
the last five years, a great deal of
university research has dealt with
the protection of natural resourc-
es. Because farmers and ranch-
ers contribute significantly to the
stewardship of the state's land,
wildlife and natural resources, the
university is assisting them with
this mission. Agriculturalists are
pioneers in proper land use and
their enterprises interface with our
natural resources. They should be
congratulated for centuries of de-
votion to the cultivation of food
and the protection of the land
upon which we all depend.
I am concerned about the
potential for draconian budget
cuts. Extension benefits both the
general public (urban and rural)
and the agricultural community.
The services IFAS provides simply
aren't being provided by any other


entity.
Historically, UF/IFAS has had
Extension Offices in each of Flor-
ida's sixty-seven counties. Sixteen
Research and Education Centers
(RECs), Research and Demonstra-
tion
Sites (RDSs) and several other
offices are located throughout the
state.
With a renewed public inter-
est in "green" or sustainable liv-
ing, IFAS is in a unique position to
provide reliable information in this
area.
Soultionsforyourlife.com is
perhaps the best way to sum up
what IFAS/Extension does for ev-
eryone in Florida. This website is a
gateway to all of that expertise and
makes it easy for the public to get
the information they need, at any
time. Topics include lawn and gar-
den care, family life and consumer
choices, agriculture, community


development, the environment
and youth development. The site
is focused on providing timely and
relevant solutions for improving
Floridian's lives.
Floridians must realize how
important IFAS is; not only to ag-
riculture, but to the many niches
it fills for all of us. I encourage ev-
eryone to contact their legislators,
members of the board of trustees
and President Machen to let them
know how much we all value
IFAS's contributions to the public
good.
(John Hoblick has been presi-
dent of the Florida Farm Bureau
Federation since 2006. Florida

eral agriculture organization in the
state representing 143,000 mem-
ber families.)

Questions that can't be answered: better off without


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+.
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
I keep hearing the word "re-
cession" and listening to com-
mentators talk about it. Some say
"We're bordering on recession",
others will tell us "No, we're just
having a downturn but it's not a
recession", others say "We're in
a recession and things are going
to get worse", still others believe
"This is just a cycle" and pre-
dict the dates when they think the
housing market will be restored
and all will be back to "normal"
once more. I can look around
and see the price of gas rising,
the boxes in the stores getting
smaller, hear about the rise in the
number of foreclosures, listen
to reports about layoffs and job


cuts, and say "Aha, we're in a...."
and then wonder what would
be the best word to accurately
describe it all. In fact, 1 don't re-
member a recent period when
I wouldn't have liked lower gas
prices, wouldn't have liked more
for my money, not hearing about
somebody being out of work, or
something bad happening some-
where.
When I call what is going on
a "recession", I'm saying, "The
glass is half-empty" rather than
half-full. What the truth of the
matter is "The glass is at the fifty
percent level." Then what is go-
ing on doesn't have some of the
particularly negative meanings
which may, or may not, exist in
my life. People look around and
connect lots of dots when may-
be, just maybe, a true picture
rests in looking at where we find


ourselves today. I can see a pes-
simism coming when someone
says, "recession" and then I look
inward.
Giving a name to it all that
carries other connotations won't
help. I worked in an office once
where we had an employee who
didn't work out; there came
the day for letting him know he
was no longer needed. When
the difficult moment came, he
asked, "Am I being fired or just
terminated?" We told him he
was "terminated" and it seemed
to cushion the blow for him;
even if amounted to the same
thing. I meet people that tell me
they're "depressed" and wonder
if it might be better to talk about
being "sad" or "down in the
dumps" or "unhappy."
The word, "Depressed" has
a lot of meanings that go with


it, suggesting something much
more serious and requiring in-
terventions or special treatment
when this might not be the case
at all. There are certainly times
when labels and descriptors are
useful but their use must be tem-
pered with the baggage they carry
with them. There is a Biblical ac-
count of laborers in the vineyard
(Matthew 20:1ff). Some work all
day, some work a half-day, some
work only an hour. Everything
is going well until they find out
they're all paid the same.
On hearing about being paid
for what they did instead of by
the hour, the ones who worked
longer felt entitled to more. The
lesson tells us, "Now when the


first came, they thought they
would receive more but each of
them received a denarius. And
on receiving it, they grumbled
at the owner saying..'you have
made them equal to us who have
'borne the burden of the day and
the scorching heat'(vss 11-12)."
We learn about how jealousy
makes people unhappy, how
perceived injustices cause jeal-
ousy and anger, how labels don't
really help. In the parable, each
got what he agreed was worth
his hire. It doesn't do anybody
any good to compare airline
ticket prices with the passenger
next to you as you're flying from
point A to point B; I like to think I
made the best deal I could when


I bought the ticket and let it go at
that. Are we in a "recession?" I
don't know, but then I'm in good
company because the supposed
experts can't agree either. What
I do know is that i may have to
make some adjustments. I'm
not convinced thatanswering the
question will help. I'm happy to
let it be.It's OK not to know. We
may be better off for it. By the
way, when it comes to matters
of faith, we don't always "know"
either; we're still better off hav-
ing faith, too. Living without
trying to pin everything down;
we really do it all of the time. It
can lead to happiness, content-
ment, and a whole host of good
things.

Embracing a greater reality


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Everett Alvarez Jr. was the
first American pilot shot down
over North Vietnam on August
5, 1964. He spent eight years and
seven months in brutal captivity
in North Vietnam, making him
the second longest held POW in
American history. The first year
and a half Alvarez spent in solitary
confinement.
Alvarez was repeatedly beaten
and tortured, but one of his dark-
est hours came after seven years
in prison. On Christmas Day 1971,
his captors let him read a letter
from his mother that said his wife
had left him. In reflection, Mr. Al-
varez said, "The hardest part was
being alone. I used to do a lot of
talking. I talked to God, and I re-
alized I wasn't really alone." He
scratched a cross outside his hut.
Mr. Alvarez prayed often.
When Mr. Alvarez was finally
released, he emerged from captiv-
ity with a new spirit. He remarried
soon after his release in February
1973. He earned a law degree in
night school. He held two senior
political posts in the Reagan ad-
ministration. In 1988, he started
Conwal Inc., the executive man-
agement consulting firm that em-
ploys,,more than 200 people and
- pulls in more than $15 million


a year. There is a story about a
White House reception he attend-
ed upon his release. John Wayne
was introduced to him and broke
down telling him "I only play a
hero, you are a hero".
Captain Floyd J. Thompson
was in an observation plane that
was downed by small arms fire on
March 26, 1964. Captain Thomp-
son survived the crash, suffering
burns,.a bullet wound across the
cheek and a broken back, and
was quickly captured by the Viet
Cong. Captain Thompson spent
the next nine years as a prisoner
of war, becoming the longest held
POW in American history. During
his captivity, he was tortured and
starved, and suffered the mental
anguish of being isolated from
other POWs for half his imprison-
ment.
The years following his home-
coming in March 1973 were far
from happy. Captain Thompson's
marriage had been troubled even
before his captivity. He and his
wife divorced in 1975. He later
remarried, but divorced soon af-'
terwards. Floyd Thompson was
never able to form any kind of
a relationship with his four chil-
dren. Ironically, Captain. Thomp-
son said that one of the things that
helped him cope with his brutal
imprisonment was thinking of the
fine family that awaited his return
and the dreams of what his life


would be like upon his return to
America. He developed a very se-
rious drinking problem and was
in several military hospitals for
treatment. In 1981, while still on
active duty, Thompson suffered a
massive heart attack and a severe
stroke that left him disabled for
the rest of his life.
He was found dead in his Key
West By the Sea Condominium
on July 16, 2002 at the age of
69. His body was cremated and
his ashes scattered at sea off the
coast of Florida.
Two men. Two similar circum-
stances. Two different outcomes.
It's amazing the difference faith in
God can make.
Christian faith does not deny
the problems and challenges of
life. It does not turn away from
reality, but it understands that
beyond the realities of this world,
a greater reality exists. And that
gives us strength to persevere.
The Apostle Paul states it this
way in Philippians 4:12-13: "I
know what it is to be in need, and
I know what it is to have plenty. I
have learned the secret of being
content in any and every situa-
tion, whether well fed or hun-
gry, whether living in plenty or in
want. I can do everything through
Him w h : ei es rnme strength "

i HENDRY REGIONAL
^lhl MEDICAL CENTER
S, ME II ...... KEEPING IT CLOSE TO HOME

No one wishes to be a candidate for surgery, but if it becomes necessary for you to have an
operation, Hendry Regional Medical Center is the place to be. Dr. Leonard Carroll is a board-
certified general surgeon who arrived in February of 2007. He now performs over a hundred
surgeries a month at HRMC.

During high school when young Leonard was making decisions about his career path, his father
offered him two choices he could become either a minister or a doctor. Leonard chose the
medical field. He finished high school at the age of 17 and completed college two years later,
doubling-up on his college semester courses and credits and going through summer sessions. At
the age of 19, Leonard Carroll was a 'straight A' medical student. He graduated in 1967 from
the University of Tennessee Medical College. He completed his internship and his residency at the
Baroness Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Before coming to Clewiston, he and his wife lived in '..
Jamestown, Tennessee, where he was a General Surgeon ,4
for 18 years. He and his wife, Cindy, are very familiar with .
rural communities. As a comparison in population statistics
in 2000, Jamestown was a mere 1,839 to then Clewiston's
,6,460. The Carrolls have become actively involved in pr

Although word is getting out about this experienced and
personable surgeon, many in the community are still unaware that they may have surgery, right
here at home. Dr. Carroll performs various types of surgical procedures among them are
laparoscopic and endoscopy surgeries.

Laparoscopic surgery, often called band-aid surgery, is a
modern technique in which operations in the abdomen are
performed through small incisions, as compared to the
traditional larger incisions. Of these types of procedures,
Dr. Carroll performs laparoscopic removal of the gall
bladder and appendix, plus hernia repairs, vasectomies
Sand tubal ligations. He also .does circumcisions,
hemorrhoid surgeries and many gynecological procedures
such as ovarian cysts, hysterectomies and others. In
addition, Dr. Carroll performs endoscopic operations.
ndoscopy means "looking inside" and typically refers to
kingg inside the human body for medical reasons, using
an instrument called an endoscope. These types of
surgeries include gastroscopy, bronchoscopy and
colonoscopy, which can all be performed right here at
SHRMC.

Dr. Carroll has always had high work ethics, and it's not
unusual for him to put in over a hundred hours of work per
week. His patients become personal to him on more than just a professional level he prays for
his patients before their surgical procedures.

Just because you or a family member need surgery doesn't mean you have to leave town for the
procedure. At Hendry Regional Medical Center, you'll have access to a broad array of
sophisticated surgical services in both in-patient and out-patient settings. Schedule your surgery
near home. Call Dr. Leonard Carroll's office for an appointment at 863-983-5026. (View the
Hendry Regional Medical Center website at www.hendryregional.org for additional information
regarding the hospital and its
services.)

The Bible on the


torture rack


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
II PETER 3:16 is very graphic
in its picture of those who would
abuse the Scriptures, trying to
make them say something that
they don't. Peter had been writ-
ing about false teachers and
those who belittle the teaching
of the Second Coming of Christ
(Chapters 2 & 3). In. rebuttal, he
continued "The Lord is not slack
concerning His promise (of the
Second. Coming), as some men
count slackness, but is longsuf-
fering to us-ward, not willing
that any should perish, but that
all should come to repentance"
(3:9). They should be alert, look-
ing to that day of the Second
S Coming of Christ and the de-
struction of the world, in godly
living. Then Peter admonished,
"Wherefore, beloved, seeing
that ye look for such things, be
diligent that ye may be found
of Him in peace, without spot,
and blameless. And account that
the longsuffering of our Lord is
salvation; even as our beloved
brother Paul also according to
the wisdom given unto him hath
written unto you. As also in all
his epistles, speaking in them of
these things; in which are some
things hard to be understood,
which they that are unlearned
and unstable wrest. as they do
also the other Scriptures, unto
their own destruction." (II Peter
3:14-16).
Peter classified Paul's writ-
ings with other Scriptures as
the Word of God. In them some
things were harder than others to
be understood, and there were
those who would WREST them,
along with other Scriptures, to
"their own destruction." This
word "wrest" is highly interest-
ing. It basically means to torture,
put on the rack. The noun from
which it comes has reference
to "an instrument for turning or
winding, a windlass, rooler...a
screw press..a rack or instru-
ment of torture."
There are those foolish
enough to treat God's Word as
if it were some poor soul placed
upon the torture rack, trying to


make it say something that it
does not say (or mean). With
the turning of the rollers, the
rack, the screws, the victim's
joints and limbs were dislocated
or crushed. Some people are this
reckless with the Word of God.
First the difficult things are
chosen for torture because the
easier ones cannot as readily be
forced and twisted. The immedi-
ate context is the Second Com-
ing of Christ. Today Scripture like
the book of Revelation is often
found upon the torture rack. Ob-
scure language is used to try to
prove way-out theories (which
have become dogmas). In the
torturous process the rest of the
Bible, although in plain everyday
language, suffers also. And dif-
ficult Scriptures are not the only
ones that fall victim to the torture
rack.
Such simple references as Acts
2:38 "Repent and be baptized
everyone of you in the name of
Jesus Christ, for the remission
of sins, and ye shall receive the
gift of the Holy Spirit.", is twisted
and disjointed by those who re-
fuse to accept what it says.
Matthew 19:9 is very plain,
but the torture rack is brought
out by those trying to make it
say more than is there. People
hertofore had not a problem
with this Scripture. But preach-
ers today, like Balaam, go back
hoping the Lord will have more
to say. Let us not attempt to be
wiser than that which is written.
Let us respect the silence of the
Scriptures.
Peter says the end result is
that they who use the torture
rack will twist the Scriptures to
their own destruction. Remem-
ber the warning that is found
in Revelation 22:18-19 about
adding or taking away from this
book of prophecy. The apostle
Paul said it was an awful thing to
pervert the gospel of Jesus Christ
(Galatians 1:6-10). Let us honor
and respect the Word of God.


First Christian opens
recycling program
First Christian Church, 210
N. Francisco Street, has begun
a recycling program to benefit
their Building Fund. They are
collecting empty laser and inkjet
cartridges and used cell phones
from the community and ship-
ping the waste products to a
service provider in exchange for
cash. In addition to the needed
funding the church and its sup-
porters are helping to protect
the environment by keeping
toxic inks, toner, etc, out of our
landfills. If you have items for re-
cycling you may call the parson-
age (863) 983-1804 for pick up or
you may bring the items to the
church during service hours or
to the parsonage at 730 E. Con-
cordia Ave. at other times. Jackie
Miller is minister of First Christian
Church.

Florida father memorializes Religious News in Brief


soldier son on motorcycle


By Tish Butts
Army Reserve Medical Command
Public Affairs
CLEARWATER -- A father
adorned a 1977 Harley Davidson
Sportster with his son's uniform
at the Bike Builders Invitational in
Clearwater, Fla., as a memorial.
That son, Sgt. Michael Rowe
of New Port Richey, Fla. and the
46th Engineer Battalion, Warrior
Brigade in Fort Polk, La. died in
2006 while on convoy in Rutbah,
Iraq. His father, David, attached
the desert combat uhiform (DCU)
to the bike as a dedication to his
memory.
"It was always my intention for
Mike to inherit it (the bike)," said
David. "It was, I guess, spiritual
when I thought, 'Well, he can't
inherit it, but I can make a memo-
rial of it."'
Along with the fabric of the
DCU, his name and rank lay across
the front fender. The American
flag sits on the right side of the gas
tank while his unit patch and Sap-
per Tab appear on the left.
According to Mr. Rowe's par-
ents, he is one of the'few in his
military occupational specialty,
Petroleum Supply Specialist (92F),
to complete the Sapper Leader
Course.
Mr. Rowe's 12 ribbons includ-
ing the Purple Heart, Bronze Star
and Meritorious Service medals
are attached to the bike on the
oil reservoir. His Combat Action
Badge and Expert Marksmanship
Badge are located above and be-
low his ribbons.
David Rowe said he decided
to create the memorial about six
months after his son died while
supporting Operation Iraqi Free-
dom.
Despite the clear-coating of the


uniform and molding the bike's
fender to fit the newly fashioned
material, David Rowe was able to
maintain the integrity of the uni-
form. "I didn't cut the fabric only
the thread," he said through tear-
glazed eyes.
"A lot of love went into that
bike," Marcy Rowe, Micheal
Rowe's mother, echoed as she
stared into the distance.
Mr. Rowe deployed to Iraq in
November 2005 and died from a
tripped mortar, which was hidden
in a drainage ditch, the following
year on March 28 the day before
his 24th birthday.
The gunner traveling with Mi-
chael Rowe saw what appeared
to be fishing line, which was used
to set off the individual explosive
device (IED), laid across the road
approximately four seconds be-
fore the blast.
His team received a briefing
about that particular IED for the
first time that morning, and Mr.
Rowe was the only passenger
who sustained fatal injuries, Mar-
cy Rowe said.
The soldier's untimely death
left Rebecca Rowe, his wife of
two years, without a husband and
his daughter Nevaeh, whom he
had never met, without a father.
Rebecca Rowe was six months
pregnant at the time.
David Rowe said that although
Nevaeh (Heaven spelled back-
ward), 18 months, never saw her
father on the Harley, she jumps on
the bike for a ride each time she
sees it.
"She loves to sit on the bike
with it running and say, 'Vroom,
vroom,'" said Marcy Rowe.
"When I look at her, I sometimes
see him looking back at me."
Mr. Rowe's daughter is a happy
free spirit who inherited his adven-


turous and caring nature.
"He was always cheerful and
optimistic," said Marcy Rowe.
"When he was in Iraq, and he
would see someone feeling down,
he would do whatever he could
to cheer them up. They would
say, 'Sarg., the munchkin bit me
again."'
Mr. Rowe's height of five feet
five inches earned him the nick-.
name "Munchkin" among his fel-
low soldiers.
According to his mom, the
young sergeant not only pushed
his fellow soldiers to excellence
in any situation, he did everything
"full throttle" in his own life.
Ironically, Full Throttle maga-
zine featured Mr. Rowe's story and
the bike baring his name and uni-
form in the January 2008 issue.
Writer of the article, the
"Rev'rand" Jim Goodrich, invited
David and Marcy Rowe to the Bike
Builders Invitational after having
seen the motorcycle at New Port
Richey Bikefest 2007. The invi-
tational is a display of 42 motor-
cycles from all over Mr. Rowe's
home-state of Florida.
"Just looking at the bike was
inspirational," said Mr. Goodrich.
The Harley has a standing invi-
tation to any bike show organized
by Mr. Goodrich since David Rowe
uses the bike to keep his son's
memory alive.
"You can't ask for a better per-
.son than that," said Mr. Goodrich.
Although the- motorcycle has
won "Judges Choice" along with
other trophies, David Rowe does
not show the bike for competition,
but to make people aware of how
the war is affecting the families of
soldiers and to remind Americans
that "freedom isn't free."


Submitted Photo
Paying tribute to his son, Michael Rowe, David Rowe embedded parts of his uniform, honors
and tags onto this Harley. However, he was careful to maintain the integrity of the uniform
and all the ornaments attached to the bike.

thing, I'm going to say no."
Michael E. Jackson, the
Glades-area liaison/ombudsman
for Palm Beach County Commis-
sioner Jess Santamaria, said that
are 23 projects lined up for South
Bay, including the long-awaited
crossroads depot construction,
to be located in front of the city's
RV park. Street improvements,
including pavement resurfacing
and milling, are also planned for
the city.

given and have run with them to
achieve these amazing results."
Mayor J.P. Sasser seemed ec-
static when speaking of the city's
decision to enter into a contract
with the sheriff's office in 2006.
"Obviously, I'm very excited
that we've had an overall reduc-
tion in crime," Mayor Sasser said.

Debate
Continued From Page 1

a debate on the most important
issues of the city. Commissioner
Walker was not present at the
Monday night forum.
Mayor Sasser attempted to win
the attention of the voters with a
somewhat surprising statement.
"While -I'll never apologize
for the passion I have for the city
of Pahokee, I will apologize for
some of the offensive language I
have used at times," Mayor Sasser
+ said to the attendees, referring to
his conduct at commission meet-
ings.
Mr. Branch believes that his
previous experience as a commis-
sioner could work in his favor.
"I feel that my maturity and
experience can be a great benefit
to what the city has to offer," Mr.
Branch said, alluding to the devel-
opment of the Everglades Adven-
tures Marina and Campground,
among others. "I hope that we
don't address personal agendas
but just agendas of the whole
community."
Mr. Whitaker pointed out his
concerns for the city regarding the
current landscape and employ-
ment opportunities.
"I would like for the city to be
cleaned up," Mr. Whitaker said in
his opening statement. "It seems
like nothing's being done: We
need our streets to be worked out.
We need a commerce park to get
some good jobs here."
The Q & A Session
All three candidates were on
the same page with many con-
cerns throughout the debate.
When it came to the question
about Pahokee not experiencing
the same growth as in other ar-
eas, Mayor Sasser pointed out to
the expansion into Lake Okeecho-
bee, but said that it hasn't been
easy to expand land into the sugar
cane fields.
"Businesses want to come


According to Mr. Jackson, $220
million is available for Glades-
area projects, with about 80 per-
cent of the county-funded dollars
unused at this time. He added
that $200,000 has been set aside
for the crossroads depot project,
while $500,000 is available for
street improvements.
Mr. Jackson is confident that
Ms. Johnson will get the job done
as a commissioner.
"Basically, I'm happy to see
her come in as a new city com-
missioner," Mr. Jackson said.
"Linda has the resources and en-
ergy that's needed to get things
moving in the city. She's shown


"We did it by switching to the
sheriff's office and I think that the
citizens, if they're not aware of it,
need to know that switching to
the sheriff's office saves the tax-
payers $500,000 per year. We also
have a more professional law en-
forcement agency."
With that in mind, Mayor Sass-
er said he appreciates Lt. Alonso
and his staff for what they've
done for the city.
Lt. Alonso, not one to take


anticipate a roadway obstruction
of any sort," said Tim Frith, the
lieutenant of the highway patrol.
"What we're looking at is either
the victim ran out of gas in his
car or had a mechanical problem
with his vehicle. It's just a theory
.that investigators are looking at
right now."
It is likely that the semi-truck
driver won't be facing any charg-
es.
"On the surface, it looks like
there will be no criminal charg-
es," Lt. Frith said.
Over at the victim's residence,
425 S.W. Ave. D, Apt. 303, Ms.


to Pahokee," Mayor: Sasser said.
"But nobody wants to give up
their land."
Mr. Branch spoke on the need
to clean up the litter in the area if
businesses were to have a desire
to come to the city, while Mr. Wh-
itaker generally talked about the
availability of land expansion.
"The agriculture business has
Pahokee in a deadlock," Mr. Whi-
taker told the voters. "Agriculture
is moving out of Pahokee. We're
landlocked. If the price is right,
then the land can be bought. We
have to get some industries in
here and have jobs other than ag-
riculture."
He clarified his point.
"I'm not against agriculture,
I'm 100 percent for it," Mr. Whi-
taker continued in his statement.
"But I think we need jobs year-
round around here."
Mayor Sasser added that about
65 new jobs have been made
available to the area's citizens, al-
luding to employment opportuni-
ties at companies such as Barnard
Parsons Construction, located
13 miles south of South Bay and
Florida Power and Light's project
near 20 Mile Bend.
When it came to coming up
with a 5- to 10-year plan for the
city, Mayor Sasser pointed to the
city's comprehensive plan, which
include improvements to the
area's sewer lines, the roadways
and the demolition of old build-
ings, to name just a few.
Mr. Whitaker told the voters a
story about an elderly couple who
are struggling to pay their water
bills.
"The couple can't afford
medicine and they're on a fixed
income," Mr. Whitaker said. "I
would work diligently to fix this."
"The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office is the best thing that
has happened to Pahokee," Mr.
Branch said.
After all three candidates stat-
ed their approval of a new middle
school and football stadium in the
near future, the last question was


herself to be a consensus builder
and a team player on local and
national issues. All of those areas
are going to be very much needed
in her new role as the new com-
missioner of South Bay."
Ms. Johnson did not forget to
acknowledge Mayor Anthony,
who she has a good relationship
with.
"I have much respect for Clar-
ence Anthony," Ms. Johnson said.
"There's never been a rift with us.
He will still be a supporter of the
city of South Bay."

credit for the success of the sher-
iff's office, had some mixed emo-
tions when briefly summarizing
the 2007 crime statistics for the
city.
"We've had a rough ending last
year with the loss of two of our
fallen heroes and these accom-
plishments are also accredited to
their efforts," Lt. Alonso said.
Staff Writer Nail Tobias can be
reached at ntobias@newszap.com.


Gipson was calm as she generally
put the situation in perspective.
"The fact that Derrick was
killed has been messing with my
.mind," Ms. Gipson said. "Derrick
was a really kind-hearted and re-
spectable boy. He smiled all the
time, especially when I cooked
baked chicken for him. I know
he's smiling down on me right
now. It's hard to take right now,
but it ain't no use of me trying to
moan because God knows best."
Staff Writer Nail Tobias can be
reached at ntoblas@newszap.com.


this:
"What do you think is the most
important issue facing Pahokee,"
Mr. Roberts asked the candidates.
"More industries will make Pa-
hokee a first-class community,"
Mr. Whitaker said.
Mr. Branch was next, and stat-
ed that he favors a city-manager
operated government, but had
reservations about professional-
ism in that position.
"We need proper fiscal respon-
sibility at city hall right away," Mr.
Branch said. "Until we get some
true professionals running the city,
we'll have the same problems."
Mayor Sasser closed the ques-
tion/answer session with a major
concern of his that exists at the
city hall, according to him.
"The problem we have in city
hall is that we have commission-
ers who don't follow the city char-
ter," Mayor Sasser said. "A lot of
our city employees are related to
our city commissioners. We need
a city manager whose integrity
is above reproach. Our city gov-
ernment is a multi-million dollar
business. We need the city com-
missioners and the city manager
fo do their jobs."
The candidates made sum-
mary remarks.
"I love Pahokee and I'll try to
take the city on to new ground,"
Mr. Whitaker said. "I think it's time
for change and I want the town to
keep growing."
In his final statement, Mr.
Branch had a simple request for
the voters.
"I encourage you to vote for
qualified people who are quali-
fied to do the job," Mr. Branch
said. "We've had that problem
before."
Mayor Sasser closed the night
with his own final statement.
"I thank everyone for coming
out and I would like your sup-
port," Mayor Sasser said: "I'm very
proud to serve as your mayor and
together, we can move the city
forward without outside forces in
control."

Track
Continued From Page 1
On the boys front, Brian Seider,
the first-year coach, has two goals
in mind: defending the District 13-
IA championship and qualifying
as many boys as possible for the
regional and state championship
meet.
One thing that will help mat-
ters this season is that fact that
a neighboring school allows the
team the use their track for prac-
tice.
For the record, Glades Day
does not have a track, so they
practice on Glades Central High
School's rubbery track, which all
competitors like to compete on.
"We're very grateful that
Glades Central allows is to prac-
tice on the field as much as we
can," Seider said. "That's a huge
help to us."
To succeed in his first year as
the track coach, Seider tries to
pick up coaching tips from a va-
riety of coaches, including his fa-
ther, Jay Seider and Pete Walker,
who will assist with the shotput
and discus throwers this season.
Seider can also be seen read-
ing a variety of track books to
gain knowledge of the sport. But
he admits that experience is the
best teacher:
There are 15 boys on the team,
with a few in particular who can
make a big impact throughout
the season. Here are some of the
key athletes:
Earnest Jackson, a senior, was
part of the relay team that qualified
for the state title last year. Jackson
hopes to anchor the relay team to
the Class 1A state title, while at-
tempting to qualify individually in
the 100 meter dash, the 200 meter
dash and the long jump.
Anthony Norton, also a senior,
wasn't available for competition
last season. But he'll be attempt-
ing to help the 4X100 and 4X400
relay teams reach the state title
meet, while doing the same in the
100 meter dash.
Jarrett Swaby, a junior who is
considered a well-rounded ath-
lete, will be competing individu-
ally in the triple and long jump
events, while also taking part
in the 4X100 and 4X400 relay
teams.
Jared Lizak, a senior, is ex-
pected to help Glades Day out
in a big way this season with his
three events: the 1 mile race, the
800 meter race and the 4X800 re-
lay team.
"The team works hard and
they show that they have the de-


sire to succeed," Seider said. "All
of the boys have a competitive
spirit, a will to win and want to
get better everyday."
With the season already un-
derway, most recently with its
impressive showing at the Feb. 26
Clewiston Quad Meet, here is the
