Eve murder



in South Bay


INI/Naji lobias
Jarrett Swaby leaves for the University of Central Florida on Monday, Jan. 5.


Catching up with Swaby


Glades Day
graduate begins the
new year at UCF
with a bang,
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE It takes a lot
of hard work and determination
to make it out of the Muck.
The application fits well for
Jarrett Swaby, who has just
graduated high school early.
The outgoing Glades Day
School senior, a student at the
private school for the past six
years, is now headed for the
University of Central Florida
(UCF) in Orlando.
In his senior year at Glades
Day, which finished with a 6-6
record this past season, Swaby
recorded 78 tackles, three sacks
and four forced fumbles on de-
fense.
The hard-hitting safety split
time as a middle linebacker,
due to injuries sustained from
the linebacker corps this sea-
son.
He played five games as a
middle linebacker and five as
a safety.
. Swaby missed two games
this season Clewiston in a 30-
24 road loss on Sept. 19 and
Indian Rocks in the 35-21 Class
1A playoff opening win on Nov.
21.
The safety missed the play-
off opener due to a neck injury


sustained in the game before,
a 28-13 home loss to two-time
Class IB state champion Jupi-
ter Christian on Nov. 14.
That being said, when Swa-
by returned in the Class 1A re-
gional final against Fort Meade,
a 21-7 season-ending home
loss, he recorded two sacks, a
fumble recovery and eight tack-
les. --
These respectable statistics
were, in part, attributed to his
4.54 40-yard dash time, which
was recorded at a UCF summer
camp this past season.
Swaby received an offer
from UCF on the spot after
showing coaches his speed,
footwork and overall athletic
ability.
The safety made an oral
commitment to the upstart col-
lege football program, which
he chose over the likes of
Florida International University
(FIU), Florida Atlantic Universi-
ty (FAU), Kent State and North-
ern Illinois.
UCF head coach George
O'Leary and his staff will be
obtaining a solid performer in
the classroom as well.
Swaby's final grade point av-
erage was a 3.0 at Glades Day,
along with an ACT score of 20.
The state's second best
vertical leap jumper Swaby
posted 39-4 at the Nike football
camp in Orlando last March -
was hailed unanimously by all
of his high school coaches as
a model citizen who possesses
great character on and off the


field.
It's safe to say that UCF will
have a star in the making for
the next four years.
Question: You've had a
great high school football 'ca-
reer at Glades Day.
Looking back from your
years: there, what would you
consider some-of your greatest
accomplishments? Why?
Jarrett Swaby: Winning
the state championship in 2006
(Glades Day defeated Tallahas-
see-North Florida Christian 42-9
in the Class IA state title game
two years ago).
Playing at Miami. Dolphins
stadium was an experience that
I'll remember for the rest of my
life (Swaby had six tackles as a
safety in that game).
It just added to something
that I'm trying to accomplish as
my main goal.
Question: It was a trying
season for you and your team,
with the result not ending the
way you would have liked.
What experiences did you
learn from this campaign and
how will you apply it to the
next level?
Jarrett Swaby: I would say
that just from this season, it had
to be the fact that we overcame
adversity to make it to the sec-
ond round of the playoffs.

Suspect arrested by
after deputies found
his wife dead

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
..SOUTH BAY The holiday
season was anything but merry
for Rosa Ramirez and her fam-
ily.
On the night of Dec. 24, the
41-year-old woman was mur-
dered after being shot follow-
ing a heated argument with her
husband.
According to Teri Barbera,
a spokesman with the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO), deputies responded to
a shots fired call at the residence
of 270 1/2 S. W 1st Street.
It was revealed that Aleli
Hernandez, 40, was identi-
fied as the main suspect in the
shooting. Investigators say teh
suspect reportedly shot her in
the torso area.
As paramedics from the
Palm Beach County Fire Res-
cue responded to the incident,
the victim was pronounced
dead at the residence, where


both she and her husband re-
portedly lived.
After deputies made an at-
tempt to apprehend the sus-
pect, he reportedly fled the
scene.
A PBSO probable cause af-
fidavit stated that deputies kept
pursuing the suspect toward
260 S. W. 2nd St., where he was
ordered to stop and get on the
ground.
The suspect, however, re-
fused to comply with orders,
according to the affidavit.
Deputies were nevertheless
able to put the man in hand-
cuffs and whisk him away to
jail, but not before the suspect
reportedly tried resisting arrest
by swinging his arms to es-
cape.
The woman died just two
hours before Christmas Day.
But it's actually worse, since
investigators have revealed that
the gruesome act was carried
out in full view of the couple's
daughter.
At about 9:53 p.m., the time
of the murder, the daughter re-
portedly contacted the sheriff's

killed by sport



utility vehicle


Incident reportedly
occurred on State
Road 715

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE On the eve-
ning of Dec. 19, Raquel Roa, 74,
was crossing a road by foot.
Unfortunately, the woman's
life was cut short as a sport util-
ity vehicle reportedly struck her
head-on.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
the victim, of 1510 N.W Ave. G,
was walking westbound across


Northwest 16th Street (State
Road 715).
At about 7 p.m., Scarlet
O'Neil, 20, was reportedly driv:
ing her 1994 Jeep nortbound
on the roadway in question.
The vehicle came to a com-
plete stop after hitting the vic-
tim, officials said.
The victim was later re-
portedly transported to Delray
Medical Center, where she was
pronounced dead.
The male driver, of 1705
Lake Circle, suffered no re-
ported injuries as a result of the
fatal crash.

Remodeling BG fire station


Palm Beach County
Fire Rescue aims
for May 2009 com-
pletion

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The renova-
tion of the city's fire rescue sta-
tion is making headway toward,
its completion.
According to Michael R.
Arena, the fire rescue's district
battalion chief, much of Belle
Glade Station 73 has already
been refurbished.
What's already been done,


Arena said, has mainly been the
inner workings of the building,
which includes the completion
of the unfinished floors, the
painting, the electrical wiring
and the plumbing.
Though it may seem insig-
nificant to the naked eye, any
renovation efforts could not be
complete without the latter two
elements being taken care of.
That being said, a host of
data a phone lines have already
been placed as the fire res-
cue anticipates having a set of
phones and up to seven organi-
zation-provided computers.
Those items, according to
Arena, will likely appear toward
the conclusion of the remodel-


ing project.
On the outside, the exterior
trimmings, made with stucco,
along with the roofing, have al-
ready been done.
These elements were among
the first priorities of the fire res-
cue, which began working on
the estimated $2.5 million proj-
ect earlier this year.
Originally scheduled for
completion sometime next
month, there have been some
setbacks in the remodeling pro-
cess, including issue with the
city's water main.
Fire rescue officials believe
that progress has been held

Work at remodeling the Belle Glade Fire Station is coming

Basketball season: Grinding in Terrier country


Basketball teams try
to rebound from slow
start

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN Basketball
season for Glades County's girls
and boys high school teams are
underway.
It's safe to say that both teams
are struggling right now as they
attempt to find a groove with their
rotations.
The coaches for both Moore
Haven teams (Chad Pio girls
coach and Wayne Reese boys
coach) believe that there's one
common thread lacking.
"As far as basketball is con-
cerned, we are behind teams
from other areas skill wise," Pio
said.
Simple enough, but there's at
least one other glaring concern
for both coaches.
For Pio, an Indiana native,
it's just that the effort in Glades
County is sorely lacking in terms-
of basketball being a priority.
He should know, coming from
a state that's best known for bas-
ketball.
"In Indiana, everybody plays
basketball, whether you're on
a team or not," the second-year
head coach said.
"Here, nobody seems to know
about all of the basketball oppor-
tunities that are out there."
Pio, who graduate from Por-
tage High School in Portage, Ind.,
may have not been a bona-fide
high school basketball player
growing up he did not make the
varsity team due to a deep talent
pool at the large school.
Nonetheless, he is a student
of the game, attending a host of
coaching clinics over the past few
years, notably a 2006 Milwaukee,
Wisc. clinic that featured Flori-
da's Billy Donovan, the two-time
NCAA Division I national champi-
onship-winning coach.
At the clinic, Pio learned what
it takes to get the most hustle out
of players, along with the effec-
tiveness of the transition offense,
which he uses this season.
So far, it hasn't exactly worked
out to his liking. But, considering
the fact that his team has only
Four seniors, Pio makes an effort
to keep things in perspective.
"'e try to be as positive as
possible," ios d." t" '.: "
"I realize we're in a rebuilding
process, so patience is one of the
keys right now."
To build for the future, Pio is
planning to hold a series of bas-
ketball camps at Moore Haven El-
ementary Scchool,-as well as West
Glades Elementary School.
"We're trying to target the ele-
mentary schools so the girls there
could gain interest in basketball
when they get to high 'school,"
Pio said.
More details on the camps will
be forthcoming, though it's ten-
tatively scheduled to take place
sometime after the basketball
season concludes.
As for the boys, Reese believes
that a thin roster has played a big
role in the team's struggles.
Factor in that there's no junior
varsity team to pull from the
Moore Haven boys basketball
team hasn't had one in three years
it's not a surprise that times are
tough for the Terriers.
"We work hard in practices
and games, but it's just not work-
ing out for us right now," Reese
said.
The boys team, according to
Reese, is 'just simply not execut-
ing on offense right now.'
Turnovers have been a major
problem for the Moore Haven
boys, who currently average a
staggering 20 per game.
It's hard to pinpoint the cause
of the Moore Haven boys' prob-
lems, but it can be that they don't
play much outside of the season.
"The kids are not sports-driven
like they used to," Reese said of
the boys.


Hendry County Speedway,
Clewiston, is pleased to announce
the 2008 point winners in each
class of drivers. We are proud of
each and every one of our drivers
and are happy to recognize their
success this year. We wish them
all continued success and look
forward to seeing them again

CODE ENFORCEMENT: For the past two weeks the City of Belle
Glade Code enforcement has been handing out threats to businesses to
paint their buildings. I wonder which city commissioner is behind this
action? Duh. If code enforcement wants people to paint their buildings
then they should give them the paint. I heard there is free paint available
from the County SWA. Especially since the city thinks they should tell ev-
eryone what color to paint. Just incase local government doesn't know
it the economy is in a depression and the only ones who have money is
the government. The businesses in Belle Glade are struggling just to keep
their doors open. Wake up Belle Glade and stop trying to put everyone
out of business. It is the people who matter and we will be at the next
Commission meeting to air our concerns about this abuse of authority.

FWC relocates Miami-area crocodile


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC), along with licensed trap-
pers, captured and relocated a
nearly 11-foot-long American
crocodile from a Coral Gables,
Miami neighborhood.
This is the second time this
particular crocodile has been re-
located.
The crocodile found its way
back to the same neighborhood
canal after the previous reloca-
tion.
This crocodile has been
blamed for eating at least three
neighborhood dogs.
In order to protect their pets,
pet owners should keep their pets
away from the water or water's
edge, on a leash or in a fenced
area.
It is against the law to feed,
touch or harass crocodiles. Fish-
ermen are asked not to throw fish
scraps back in the water, which
may attract crocodiles and po-
tentially teach them to associate
people with food.
Fishermen should discard their
scraps in a garbage can.
Crocodiles present a minimal
danger to people.
There have been no docu-
mented bites on a person by an
American crocodile in Florida.
The American crocodile is
an endangered species success

Though they are a part of everyday life in South Florida, alligators should be respected.
Experts nevertheless urge extreme precaution when traveling in areas prone to increased
alligator activity.


story.
Once one of the most criti-
cally endangered species in North
America, it has recovered and is
becoming a relatively common
occurrence in coastal areas of
South Florida.
As many as 2,000 non-hatch-


ling crocodiles may now live in
Florida.
The American crocodile is still
listed as endangered by the state.
However, as a result of the Florida
population's recovery, the federal
listing has been upgraded from
endangered to threatened.


Relocating crocodiles is sel-
dom effective because most croc-
odiles return to their capture site.
Therefore, people who live
in coastal areas of South Florida
should take common-sense pre-
cautions to coexist with croco-
diles.

4 OPINION

The Mayaimis Indian Nation*si


The Mayaimis who
lived at Fort Center

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The man walked stealthily, as
a shadow in the night, leaving no
clue of his presence or passage.
He became an apparition, a wisp
of smoke that the casual observer
saw, but didn't see.
Centuries of woodcraft lore
was engrained in the mahogany
figure that now paused at the
edge of the hammock.
Moving slowly and carefully,
he inched and slithered his way
into the hammock until a large
water oak loomed over his head.
He rose slowly into the em-
bracing mist that shrouded his
body, making him invisible to the
watchful eyes that peered down
from the lofty tops of the oak
tree.
The bow was held firmly in
one hand, while sinewy fingers
grasped the notched arrow and
pulled the bow string back to the
hunters check.
In a single fluid motion, the
hunter aimed and released the
arrow.
The arrow sped quietly from
the bows embrace to the hunter's
quarry.
The silence of the early morn-
ing was broken by a surprised yip
as the arrow shaft drove through
flesh and bone.
The silhouette of a large turkey
fluttered, before falling earthward
to the awaiting hunter.
This tale reflects the life of a
Mayaimis hunter, whose life was
dependant on nature's bounty.
It's time to take "A Walk in The
Past" and learn about the cuisine
those early, Glades County neigh-
bors enjoyed at Fort Center and
some of the tools they used for


A T -

food gathering.
Our ole friend, Fontanendo, a
Spanish slave to the Calusa, said
the trout (bass) on Lake Mayai-
mis were huge, but that is old his-
tory to us.
He wrote that the Mayaimis
Indians preferred meat and birds
above the other foods found on
Lake Okeechobee.
A particular mound site at Fort
Center confirmed Fontanedo's
memoirs.
Archeologist, William Sears,
said the Mayaimis at the Fort Cen-
ter site ate well.
He and his team of archeolo-
gists found tremendous quanti-
ties of turkey, deer, fish, and turtle
bones at one mound.
Mr. Sears noticed that the turtle
shells had marks and scars, which
raised an interesting question for
Mr. Sears.
Did the Mayaimis Indians build
turtle pens and keep captive tur-
tles?
The Mayaimis Indians and oth-
er Indian nations living in south
Florida ate a lot of deer venison.
It is interesting that the early
Spanish journals on south Flor-
ida excludes buckskins, a soft,
tanned, deer skin used for cloth-
ing.
South Florida Indians made
various tools from deer bones,
but apparently did not use the
deer hides for clothing.


The warm, tropical Florida
climate dictated little clothing
and the wet environment prob-
ably caused havoc with leather,
so only plant fibers were used for
clothing.
The Mayaimis living at the
Fort Center site enjoyed seasonal
fruits: fox grapes, hog plums, pal-
metto berries, elderberries and
persimmons were some of the
seasonal fruits.
I have dined on these fruits
and some are very tasty, but pal-
metto berries failed to pass my
palate standards.
Eating palmetto berries require
an acquired taste and no doubt
the early Florida Indians started
acquiring that taste from youth.
The palmetto berry provided
not only nutrition for the Indians,
but medical remedies.
Spaniards noticed and wrote
in their memoirs that older, male
Indians used the berries to treat
their male prostate ills.
Spaniards started shipping the
berries home in the 1600s, to treat
men with enlarged prostates.
Mr. Sears found ancient, maize
(corn) pollen in human coprolite
(fossil feces) samples and at dif-
ferent mound sites.
One site was within the "Sun
Circle," a quarter mile circle with
ditched embankments.
Analyzes were ran on the
maize pollen collected inside the


Sun Circle and test results proved
the grains came from ancient
maize and not later hybrid variet-
ies.
It is Mr. Sear's conclusion that
corn was raised at some of the
Fort Center mound sites as part of
the inhabitant's diet.
Various tools used by the in-
habitants for food gathering was
found in the mounds; Whelk
shells with drilled holes were
used as hoes for digging. Wood-
en bowls for food.
Two double ended wooden
pestles for grinding foods. An
identical pestle was found at the
Chosen mound.
Plummets (weights) made of
shell or stone.
Wooden floats were attached
to the top of a fish net, while
plummets were attached to the
bottom, holding the net vertical in
the water.
There will be more Tall Tales
about the Mayaimis Indian town
at Fort Center in next week's edi-
tion of "A Walk in The Past."
This article can come alive for
you and your families on January
10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. when
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission host a
grand opening at Fort Center.
The fort site is located close to
Lake Port on S.R. 78.
Everyone is invited and the ac-
tivities are free.

Do you know the five C's of credit?
By Jon Geitner a borrower doesn't have enough pose of borrower qualification ceptable to most lenders. Now
Senior Vice President money to make their payment "gross monthly income" or GMI let's say the loan you were apply-
Seacoast National Bank the fact that they may want to is used, not net. It can be consid- ing for would increase your fixed


Of the "5 C's of Credit" (Char-
acter, Collateral, Capacity, Capital,
and Condition), the most impor-
tant of these is Capacity. Capacity
is a direct reference to the ability
of the borrower to repay the debt.
In other words, is there sufficient
income (debt service) to allow for
not only the repayment of the loan
but to also service the customer's
other monthly obligations.
An individual's income is ana-
lyzed on a monthly basis. For
most people, the income they
receive is paid, at a bare mini-
mum, once per month. This then
allows people to meet fixed ob-
ligations, such as mortgages and
car payments which also occur
monthly. It is important because if


doesn't matter. Without sufficient
income, no loan can be properly
repaid.
Qualified income can come
from many sources. Social Se-
curity, salary, interest, dividends,
pensions, rental income, child
support, alimony, and even lot-
tery winnings, if recurring, can be
considered as income. The big-
gest challenge is usually proving
the income claimed. Tax returns,
payroll stubs, W-2s, and bank
statements are common forms of
documentation that lenders will
ask borrowers to produce in or-
der to prove the income claimed
on an application.
Once annual income is veri-
fied it will be broken down into
monthly increments. For the pur-


ered either jointly or individually,
depending upon how the applica-
tion is filed. Then, fixed monthly
payments, usually in the form of
other loan obligations, are calcu-
lated. Variable amounts, such as
electric and phone bills, are not
included.
Capacity is the one area of
lending money that is based en-
tirely upon proven formulas.
These formulas are commonly
referred to as "debt to income" or
DTI. This is simply a ratio of the
monthly payments to the monthly
income. For illustration, let's say
your current fixed monthly pay-
ments total $300 and your gross
monthly income is $1000. Your
DTI ratio would be $300/$1000
or 30%. This ratio would be ac-


monthly payments by $150 from
$300 to $450. Applying the same
formula, your new DTI would
be $450/$1000 or 45%. By most
standards your DTI would be too
high and your request would be
denied.
If you think of it in practical
terms you need to consider how
much money you have left, after
your fixed expenses are paid, to
live on. The prudent lender will
generally cap their DTI at 40%, al-
though exceptions can be made
if you have significant income,
leaving you substantially more
money, after fixed expenses, to
take care of your other living ex-
penditures.

The Lake Region transportation line is still alive


FDOT provides funds
to keep the shuttle
bus route intact

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PALM BEACH COUNTY Area
residents, don't worry ... the bus
is still running.
According to the Fla. Depart-
ment of Transportation (FDOT), it
will be intact for at least two more
months.
But officials say the Lake Re-
gion Commuter Bus Route, which
runs from Wal-Mart in Clewiston
to Palm Beach Community Col-
lege in Belle Glade, may not exist
after Feb. 28.
According to Thomas Boiton,
a representative with the Metro-
politan Planning Organization
(MPO), it's for just one reason.
"To sustain the bus route, the
funding is just not there for us,"
Boiton said.
The Lake Region commuter
route was implemented in 2001
through a grant provided by Fla.
Department of Transportation.
A year later, Palm Tran and the
Palm Beach County government
provided a shuttle bus route that
would service residents that live
anywhere from Belle Glade to
Clewiston.
It has been very useful to those
who don't own a vehicle, espe-
cially for people who need the
bus to go to work or school along
the route.
According to statistics pro-
vided by the MPO, for the first
three months of operation the


Courtesy photo/pbcgov.com
Work in the general region is focused on continuing the Lake Region Commuter Route to Clewiston, which some residents
utilize as a way to work each day. According to the officials, however, funding is sorely lacking in keeping the bus route open
and available to everyone.


bus route first existed in Oct. 2002
- ridership was estimated at 850
people per month.
Each year, the ridership steadi-
ly increased, with the route's peak
estimated at about 2,000 riders for
the month of Dec. 2007.


In fact, the MPO tabulated that
for 2007, ridership, on average for
the entire year, was a 1,747 per
month.
That's a pretty sizable increase
from 2006, where ridership was
at about 1,600 per month,


But with the economy in peril,
Palm Tran, the county's public
transportation system, is currently
budget-strapped when it comes
to deciding which bus routes to
keep and which ones to relin-
quish.


So if the route ceases to exist
on March 1, it wouldn't be a sur-
prise.
But given the fact that many
residents in the area need the
route to get to necessary places,
there are preliminary plans in


place to find alternative ways to
keep the bus in operation.
For its part, FDOT recently pro-
vided Palm Tran with $40,000 in
State Transit Corridor Program
funds to continue the Clewiston-
Belle Glade route service.
According to Cindy Clem-
mons-Adente, the FDOT District 1
public.information officer, the ex-
tension was granted to allow the
Community Transportation Coor-
dinator (CTC) of Hendry County
to take over this transit route from
Palm Tran and continue service
Officials from FDOT, Palm
Tran, the MPO and Hendry Coun-
ty are hopeful that through con-
tinuing to work together, they'll
be able to formulate a service
and financial plan to keep the
Clewiston-Belle Glade segment in
operation after March 1.
The four organizations are cur-
rently looking from a host of state
and federal funding resources to
help the bus route stay in opera-
tion.
"The department is commit-
ted to keeping the Clewiston-
Belle Glade segment of the Lake
Region Commuter route in opera-
tion," Clemmons-Adente said.
"Locals should be recognized
for their concern, advocacy and
efforts to support the department
and Palm Tran to temporarily
continue this route."

Investigators with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) exposed
a fictional Palm Beach County-
based wildlife rescue charity and
charged a Lake Worth woman
with fraud.
Heather K. Southworth, DOB
07/02/1982, is facing four counts
of felony fraud.
She was booled in't:' the Palm.
Beach County Jail last month and


was released after posting bond.
The rescue's Web site, www.
rescuebigcatorg.com/floridab-
ranch.htm, claims a facility in
Boynton Beach is providing res-
cues, tours and breeding of large
exotic cats.
In April, FWC investigators at-
tempted to find the location by
using the given address.
But they discovered that no
rescue exists on the property; the
location is not permitted for Class
I wildlife; and the organization
has rni,' coi p 'rir lic, nse .. -- ,
The rescue was, however, so-


liciting donations online through
a post office box and through
PayPal. The organization's post
office box belonged to South-
worth.
In addition, the organization's
IP address is registered to South-
worth's Lake Worth home.
Southworth later admitted
the facility never existed, and the
Web site, staff and animals were
fabricated.
Investigators continue to work
to determine the amount of mon-
ey she received in donations.

After Christmas, getting back to the real world


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A number of years ago, when
Lou Holtz was at the University of
Arkansas, he was taking his team
to play a bowl game in Tempe,
Arizona.
The game was to be played
on Christmas day. He was asked
how he felt about playing a game
on Christmas, rather than being
with his family.
The coach answered candid-
ly: "I would rather be in Tempe.
After all, once you have been to
church, had Christmas dinner,
and opened the presents, Christ-


mas is the most boring day of the
year."
Is that all there is to Christmas?
There always seems to be a let-
down the week after Christmas.
Christmas demands so much of
us.
Now it's back to the real world,
plus a few extra bills to pay and a
few extra pounds to work off.
But, is Christmas only a day
out of the year when the floor
becomes a virtual mountain of
torn wrappings, boxes, and bows
and we spend 20 minutes eating a
meal that took hours to prepare?
What happens the morning after?
Do we pack up the spirit of Christ-


mas when we pack up the orna-
ments and decorations?
Over the years, I have learned
all kinds of tricks to try to prolong
the life of my live Christmas tree.
We put aspirin in the water, sug-
ar, store preservatives, and more,
but regardless of the solutions the
tree would always wither.
Why?
Because it had been cut off
from its roots.
Maybe that is our problem to-
day.
Maybe we have trouble mak-
ing Christmas last because we
have become cut off from our
roots.


We celebrate, we shop, we
eat, we gift, and then we go back.
We talk about the reason for the
season, but our focus only has
seasonal growth, and then fades
away. ,
So, how can we deeply root
our celebration of Christmas so it
won't just wither away?
How do we preserve the spirit
of Christmas when the morning
after arrives and we are back in
the real world?
One way is to follow the ex-
ample of Joseph and Mary. They
had to return to the real world just
as we do following Christmas.
After the shepherds left and the,


angels stopped singing, after the
celebration of the birth of Jesus,
they faced some of life's many
challenges, including a flight to
Egypt to escape persecution.
There were good times and
bad times. Mostly there were just
ordinary times.
In the end it really didn't mat-
ter what life sent their way. No
event was serious enough to de-
stroy their love for one another or
their faith in God.
What did this Mary and Jo-
seph do? They did what you and I
do. They went on with their lives.
They did the best they could and
they trusted God.


Life's not easy for most peo-
ple. It was not easy for Joseph
and Mary, but they knew God was
with them, just as God is with us.
That's what got them through.
It's what will get us through.
The eternal message of Christ-
mas that we can keep with us as
we get back to the real world is
this: God is with us and for us.
It's good to know. It's one truth
of Christmas that can take root
in our hearts and lives and never
whither.


Restoring the Church back to what it should be!


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
The church as established by
Christ through His Apostles in the
first century was not a denomi-
nation, but simply and purely
the church and spiritual body of
Christ upon the earth!
On this most all will agree. But
on the necessity of returning to
that status, and on the means of
doing this, few will agree.
Divesting ourselves of denomi-
nationalism does not come easy.
But, if we really want to be accept-
able with the Lord, it is necessary
(John 17:20-22; Romans 16:17;
I Corinthians 1:10-13; 3:1-4, 17;
Ephesians 4:1-6; Galatians 1:6-8).
Let us stop trying to justify our
denominations, organizations
and traditions of men not found
.in the New Testament. God gives
no one the right to believe one
thing and his neighbor to believe
another.
In that Great Day all of us are
going to be judged by the same
Book, and we know what that
Book is!
No man has authority from
God to form a denomination or
even invite others to join such a


denomination.
No one has such authority
for it has not been divinely given
(Ephesians 2:16; Colossians 3:15;
I Corinthians 12:13; Acts 2:38-41,
47).
Let us search out the old "land
marks." Let us humbly return to
the "old paths."
Yet, let us get back to the one
church that has already been
established in the first century
(against such, Jesus said the gates
of hell would not prevail, Matthew
16:18).
Truly, there is much divesting
and returning that needs to be
done.
We have no other option that
is acceptable in the sight of God.
The question is, are we up to it?
Let me share with you just
a few things that need to be re-
stored and let me point out some
of the positions of notable church
leaders on these issues:
A. Baptism Is Immersion:
I.Martin Luther, who followers
founded the Lutheran Church;
"On this account I could wish
that such as are baptized should
be completely immersed into wa-
ter, according to the meaning of
the word and the significance of


the ordinance... as also without
doubt, it was instituted by Christ.
2. John Calvin, founder of the
Presbyterian Church: "The very
word 'baptize' signifies to im-
merse, and it is certain that im-
mersion was the practice of the
-primitive church.
3.John Wesley, founder of the
Methodist Church: "We are bur-
ied with Him by baptism, alluding
to the ancient manner of baptism
by immersion."
"Baptism according to the cus-
tom of the first church and the
rule of the Church of England, by
immersion."
B. Baptism essential to salva-
tion: 1. Martin Luther: "As we
have once obtained forgiveness
of sins in baptism, so forgiveness
remains day by day as long as we
live."
2. John Calvin: "For He com-
mands all who believe to be bap-
tized for the remission of sins.
Therefore those who have imag-
ined that baptism is nothing more
than a mark or sign by which they
profess our religion before men,
as soldiers wear the insignia of
their sovereign as a mark of their
profession, have not considered
that which was the principal


thing in baptism, which is, that
we ought to receive it with this
promise, 'He that believeth and
is baptized shall be saved' -Mark
16:16." 3. John Wesley: "By wa-
ter, then, as a means, the water
of baptism, We are regenerated
or born again: whence it is also
called by the apostle, 'the wash-
ing of regeneration.'"
C. Weekly Observance Of The
Lord's Supper.
1 .John Calvin: "Every week at
least, the Table of the Lord should
have been spread and the prom-
ises declared, by which in partak-
ing of it, we might be spiritually
fed."
"For the first seven hundred
years the ordinance was ob-
served; the change was a contriv-
ance of the Devil."
2. John Wesley: "I advise the
elders to administer the supper of
the Lord on EVERY Lord's Day."
3. Baptist Confession of Faith
(1611): "Every church ought, ac-
cording to the example of Christ's
disciples, primitive churches,
upon every first day of the week
being the Lord's Day, to assemble
to pray, prophesy, praise God, and
break bread, and perform all oth-
er parts of spiritual communion."


* D. The Name Christian. 1.
Martin Luther: "I pray you, leave
my name alone. Do not call your-
selves Lutherans but Christians.
Who is Luther?
My doctrine is not mine, I have
not been crucified for anyone.
St. Paul would not permit that
anyone should call themselves of
Paul, nor of Peter, but of Christ.
How, then, does it befit me, a
miserable bag of dust and ashes,
to give my name to the children
of Christ.
Cease, my dear friends, to cling
to these party names and distinc-
tions. Away with them all; let us
call ourselves only "Christians"
after Him for whom our doctrine
comes."
2. John Calvin: "Acknowledge
no unity except in Christ." 3. John
Wesley: "I would to God that ALL
party names and unscriptural
phrases and forms which have
divided the Christian world were
forgot; that we might all agree to
sit down together as humble lov-
ing disciples at the feet of a com-
mon Master, to hear His word,
to imbibe His Spirit, and to tran-
scribe His life into our own.."
"I wish the name Methodist
might never be mentioned again,


but lost in eternal oblivion."
4. Charles Haddon Spurgeon,
famous Baptist preacher: "I look
forward with pleasure to the day
when there will not be a Baptist
living.
I hope they will soon be gone.
I hope the "Baptist" name will
soon perish, but let Christ's name
last forever."
Someone has expressed the
restoration principle as follows:
"We believe that it is possible for
anyone, anywhere, to renounce
all denominational barriers to
Christian unity, and by following
the simple plan for the church as
set forth in the Scriptures, to be-
come and remain simply and only
a Christian... and thus a member
of the true body of Christ, His
church.
If one can do that, we believe
several can, and if several, then
a thousand, and if a thousand,
then the whole Christian world...
and by so doing realize the one-
ness of His followers which Christ
envisioned, and for which He
prayed."
First Christian Church is work-
ing to this end! I'll see you at our
Revival, Jan. 2-4, 7 p.m.


Christmas: When the Lord says 'I've been there.'


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D..+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
She was newly married as she
was taking a course that I was
teaching some years ago at a
small liberal arts college.
As the first exam neared,
she told me she didn't a have a
chance to study. I agreed to pre-
pare a make-up exam and did so.
It was the same at the time
to give the make-up exam; she
didn't have a chance to study. An-
other make-up opportunity.
She did not show up for this
test and when the final exam
came, she told me something
had come up and kept her from
studying.
I told her she cold take an
"incomplete" in the course and
re-take it when she was prop-
erly prepared to do the work re-
quired.
She didn't know it, but some-
thing similar happened to me thir-
ty years before I was the teacher.


I was working two jobs, trying
to keep a relationship together,
going to school, and there was
precious little -time to study.
A kindly professor felt I was
"worth saving" those were her
words, and she gave me the same
opportunity, with the admonition
to "take the course from some-
one easier next term."
I took her welcomed advice,
passed, and went on to finish my
first degree.
Being responsible to see that
students learn and being fair to all
with grading is a part of the seri-
ous obligation that each teacher
has .to respect.
Within the ethical obligations,
though, come ways of helping
when it seems warranted without
compromising standards.
It is important to be true to
one's obligations while knowing
that another chance will make a
real difference in the world.
I don't think that student would
understand why she was given a


second chance that day; perhaps
she considered herself "lucky" I
imagine I saw something beyond
what she saw: understood be-
yond her level of understanding
what had happened.
She learned from personal ex-
perience about salvation, recep-
tion, forgiveness, compassion.
The message for Christmas,
the reason for the Lord's coming,
is captured very eloquently in the
words of the Epistle to the Philip-
pians; "Christ Jesus, who though
He was in the form of God did, not
count equality with God a thing to
be grasped, but emptied Himself,
taking the form of a servant, be-
ing born in the likeness of men,
and being found in human form,
He humbled Himself and became
obedient..." (chapter 2: 5 8)."
It is because the Lord can say
"I've been there; I know what it
is like" even beyond our under-
standing that Christmas can be so
special to us.
Christmas is about the Lord


being here, living here, seeing for
Himself, realizing for Himself, giv-
ing of Himself and seeing what
blessings would be ours by the
gifts He would bring.
I had obtained mercy; there-


fore I was able to show mercy
and understand what it meant.
I had been forgiven; therefore
I was able to forgive and do it was
a glad heart.
I was shown love; and able to


love others in return. The Lord
came to show us how to do all of
these things; life is different now
because of "Christmas." Christ-
mas has come, a new life is ours.

Honestly, for us, we expected
to get to that point. But people on
the outside doubted us since we
had a .500 record going into the
playoffs.
We were injury-plagued the
whole season. We scored a lot
in our games, but we just didn't
finish.
Our secondary was young and
we just didn't have enough peo-
ple to step up in general.
Our line struggled going into
the playoffs, but they did a lot bet-

SFWMD ensures
public conservation
land is accessible to
everyone

West Palm Beach, FL An e-
mail from a wounded veteran
contained a simple request: Cre-
ate more access to public lands
for disabled South Florida resi-
dents.
In an effort to honor our na-
tion's veterans while also making
public conservation. lands more
accessible to all, the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
WMD) constructed a waterfowl
hunting/bird watching platform
in the Everglades for disabled sol-
diers and residents alike.
The SFWMD and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission sponsored the first
hunt on December 21, when sev-
eral hunters lent their hunting per-
mits to disabled veterans so they
could enjoy the new platform
located in Stormwater Treatment
Area (STA) 5 in Hendry County.
Bird watchers will also benefit
from the increased access.
The successful project. was
just the latest SFWMD effort to
meld restoration with recreation
by increasing recreational oppor-
tunities on public lands. Many of
these lands are the water-quality
cleanup workhorses of Everglades
restoration known as Stormwater
Treatment Areas (STAs).
Everglades Stormwater Treat-
ment Areas, which are planted
with native vegetation, use "green
technology" to reduce phospho-
rus levels in stormwater runoff.
To date, the District has. converted
more than 52,000 acres of land
south of Lake Okeechobee to
STAs, yielding 45,000 acres of
treatment wetlands. An addi-
tional 12,000 acres are now being
designed as part of the District's
ongoing effort to improve Ever-
glades water quality.
Since inception, the STAs have
retained 1,058 metric tons of
phosphorus that would have oth-
erwise entered the Everglades. In
addition to their role in improv-
ing Everglades water quality, the
massive treatment wetlands have
become a haven for South Florida
wildlife, particularly wading birds
and migratory waterfowl. Many
of the STAs have been opened to
the public for recreation such as
hiking, biking and bird watching.
The District has long spon-
sored a hunting recreation pro-
gram, and all of the District's STAs
are compliant with the Americans
with Disabilities Act.
Yet the veteran's e-mail made
SFWMD Governing Board Mem-


Brandin Hawthorne and Vincent
Smith are the others), why do you
believe it's so important to get a
jump start on the college level?

Jarrett Swaby: I would have
to say that I'm going to get a early
jump on the other safeties that
are in my class that's coming to
UCF this year.
UCF already has one safety
(Darren Baldwin, a junior free
safety for the 2009 season).
I think Darren's projected to
be starter at free safety, but the
strong safety position is open.
I'll be competing against Hen-
ry Wright (Orlando-Boone) in the
summer for the starting spot.
To start at UCF, I just need to
go on in January, lift weights,
work hard and show the coaches
what I can do.
If I do these things, then every-
thing will take care of itself.


to'avoid a potential confrontation,
the suspect entered his room and
retrieved a chrome plated hand-
gun shortly thereafter.
According to the PBSO arrest
report, after the suspect exited
his room with the gun in his right
front pocket, he asked the victim
to step outside the residence.
When the victim reportedly
refused to comply with the sus-
pect's demand, he accused her
of having a desire to be emotion-
ally or physically involved with his
brother.
After the victim told the sus-

ber Michael Collins and members
of the Water Resources Advisory
Commission (WRAC), which he
chairs, believe more could be
done.
"The veteran said, 'I'm tired of
volunteering my time to go down
to the hospital and play bingo and
watch those guys sitting in chairs
inside of the hospital,'" Collins re-
called. "It just struck me that for
those guys, getting out on one of
the levees would be a really good
thing to have happen. The great
thing about it is we build this duck
platform out into the swamp and
it's actually something that makes
a great access point for every-
body."
The platform itself is a large
wooden boardwalk that can ac-
commodate two wheelchairs. For
hunting, the structure can be set
up with camouflage netting and
other tools of the sport. Two addi-
tional, higher platforms accomo-
date visitors for wildlife viewing at
other times.
"The STA waters have proven
to be a fantastic duck hunting op-
portunity in a world where there
are very few hunting opportuni-
ties left to the public any more,"
Collins added.

The SFWMD took several steps
to improve recreational opportu-
nities throughout South Florida in
2008 including:

In October, outdoor enthu-
siasts gained another spot to en-
joy a host of recreational activities
with the opening of the 3,700-acre
Chandler Slough in Okeechobee,
an addition to the Kissimmee Riv-
er Public Use Area.
In July 2008, the SFWMD
outfitted Stormwater Treatment
Area (STA) 1-West, ,located in
central Palm Beach County, with
a new parking area leading to a
200-foot viewing platform and ga-
zebos overlooking the watery ex-
panse. The three-mile trail along
a section of the levee surrounding
the 6,670-acre. STA offers hikers,
bicyclists, photographers and bird
watchers vast views of nature and
wildlife such as great blue herons
and mottled ducks.
Also in July 2008, hikers,
campers and horseback riders
were given access to apply online
for recreational use licenses for
activities on more than a dozen
sites managed by the District. The
online application is at www.sf-
wmd.gov/sul.


Question: It's getting to be
more commonplace for high
school football prospects to com-
mit to colleges early.
Where do you see that trend
headed in the next few years?
Why?

Jarrett Swaby: Honestly, I
would say more kids feel they can
play on the next level. The more
experience they have early, the
better.

Question: If you make it to
the NFL four years from now, is
it fair to say that you've accom-
plished your ultimate dream? .
What will you plan to do in
college to'make that dream a re-
ality?

Jarrett Swaby: I wouldn't
say that because my dream is not
only to make it there, but to last
for a long time.


pect that he's a 'liar', according to
the affidavit, he shot back these
words:
"No, you are," the suspect said
in an irate tone.
It would be his final words to
his wife and victim before pulling
the trigger.
The suspect, according to the
arrest report, simultaneously re-
moved the gun from his pocket,

ing the weapon right at the wom-
an's torso.

up recently due to the need to re-
route the city's water main.
Engineers did not recommend
placing steel pylons and new as-
phalt on the rear of the fire res-
cue's driveway.
The reasoning for that, officials
say, is because the water main's
conditions deteriorated with age.
Arena admitted that he didn't
know exactly how old it was, but
he believes the water main had to
be at least 40 years old.


Like I said before, if I just pro-'
duce stat-wise and work hard. Ev-
erything will take care of itself.

Question: As you know,
there's no guarantee that any
college player will make it to the
league.
If it doesn't work out for you,
what do you like to do as a pos-
sible career? Why?

Jarrett Swaby: I'll be major-
ing in criminal justice. If I don't
make it to the league, I want to
start coaching college football.
What I would do is be a gradu-
ate assistant for a year and then
hopefully land a job as a college
coach.
But if that doesn't work out ei-
ther, then I plan to join the police
academy and become a sheriff's
officer.

Question: Believe it or not,


simultaneously pulled the trigger,
realizing what he had done.
After the suspect threw the
gun down, the victim, begging for
help, fell into unconsciousness,
the affidavit said.
Both the suspect and his broth-
er, Felipe Hernandez, reportedly
made an attempt to render aid to
the victim.
The most revealing details
came at the end of the daughter's
sworn statement, which stated
that her mother feared the sus-
pect would one day kill her due to
his jealous personality.


The fire rescue is set to fund
approximately $120,000 to take
care of the issue, pending ap-'
proval from city and county engi-
neers.
"The concern was when we
started putting the driveway in the
back of the station, the water line
would break," Arena explained.
"We're doing it that way so if
there's any problems, the water
line would run under the asphalt
of the fire station."
The water main, officials say,
will be relocated along the perim-
eter of the fire rescue station.
Work on the driveway, accord-
ing to Arena, was set to begin ear-

many young kids out there look
up to you as a role model, espe-
cially since you're widely consid-
ered as a model citizen.
Do you have any advice for
the youth?

Jarrett Swaby: Stay humble

what gets you into college.

The daughter also told detec-
tives that*the suspect wouldn't
allow the victim to socialize and
often harassed her through the
phone.
Due to all of the evidence pre-
sented, the suspect was charged
with second degree murder, in
addition to resisting arrest with
violence.
Both are considered felonies,
according to the Fla. State Stat-
utes.
The suspect is currently being
held at the county's main deten-
tion center without bond on the


lier this week.
Now, as for the rest of the ren-
ovation process, a timeline will be
presented Jan. 7 to outline details
of the home stretch.
What's left is the landscaping
portion, which will reportedly
include palm trees, mulch and
grassy areas for drainage pur-
poses.
A detailed description of it will

ple of weeks.
Though there's no exact date
at this time for fire rescue officials
to move into the renovated build-
ing, Arena is hoping that it could
happen before the May 2009 tar-


tered into a new year.

With that being said, as you

things, is there anything you

change from last year?
