Profiles for March 10 election


GLADES The following are
candidates to be featured in the
upcoming March 10 elections.
Remaining profiles to be print-
ed in next week's edition.
Nicholas Larsen
Note: He's challenging
.against Pahokee commissioner
Keith Babb, who's the incum-
bent in this race.
I am 25 years old. I was born
and raised in southwest Volusia
County, FL. In 2005, I received
a bachelor's degree in Spanish
from the University of Florida
and later moved to south Flor-
ida. I became a Pahokee resi-
dent in 2006. I am married to
Kiley Harper-Larsen. I am cur-
rently employed as a biologi-
cal scientist at the University
of Florida Everglades Research
and Education Center. I love
Pahokee because my wife and
I were welcomed to the com-
munity with open arms. I am a
political newcomer with fresh
viewpoint. Pahokee needs a
proactive commissioner that
questions and evaluates every
proposal. The same old tired
politics that have done nothing
to improve citizen's lives will
continue to do nothing. I know
that my management skills and
open ears are an asset. I want
to start cleaning up the dilapi-
dated buildings in Pahokee.
These buildings are an eyesore.
They are dangerous and harbor
criminal activity. It is difficult
to attract new business and.
residents when the city looksI
poorly.
Pahokee needs a fiscal
conservative on the City Com-
mission. I feel that the city's
image, public safety and our
basic services provided by the'
city are more valuable than pet
projects that only benefit a few
people. The dilapidated, aban-
doned and unsafe buildings
that plague this city must be
demolished and replaced with
businesses or agencies that
are committed to employing
and serving our citizens. Paho-
kee should not be a haven for
criminals and sex offenders. I
will work with local police and
community leaders to form
community watch programs
that will protect every citizen's
life and property. I will also
work to prevent criminals and
sexual offenders from moving
into Pahokee. Our city should
be poised for economic devel-


opment. Existing local busi-
nesses need to be promoted
and new businesses need to be
attracted. Our money should
remain here so that businesses
can hire more local citizens.
The skill sets of our young citi-
zens need to be applicable to
agriculture, tourism, customer
service, and environmental sci-
ence. I wish to equip the City of
Pahokee with the most quali-
fied, organized and customer
service-oriented personnel. i
No longer should citizens be
bounced from one department
to another to get problems ad-
dressed and solved. Our City
should be recognized for our
civil servant's responsiveness,
professionalism and talent. I
am a people person because I
listen. Citizens want an atten-
tive city commissioner. I will
continually show the people I
serve that I care about them. I
plant to ask people what they
think and make the people's
concerns my political agenda.
This means that I will call citi-
zens at random, find people in
our local restaurants and gro-
cery stores, and visit citizens
at work. Stability is extremely
important. Even so, change
to improve and provide more
stability in the long'run can be
necessary. As a city, we cannot
operate effectively with a carou-
sel of city managers, city clerks,
and other department heads.
We need to do all that we can
to keep and attract outstanding
public servants.
It is past time for politicians
that have let our cities decay
to cede their power. It is time
for new leaders who are deter-
mined to improve their commu-
nities to take power. We need
leaders in city government that
the county, state, and federal
government will trust. Leaders
that will exhibit great steward-
ship and use every dollar in a
way that benefits all citizens,
not a chosen few. I am one of
those leaders. I have a website:
www.abetterpahokee.com. I
am on Facebook and have a
group: Nicholas Larsen for Pa-
hokee City Commission. If you
would like to thlk to me please
call 993-1560 during the day or
924-9087 at night. My email is
larsnick@ufl.edu.
Keith Babb
I am the West County Super-
visor for the Palm Beach Coun-


ty Division of Senior Services.
I am responsible for senior
services for the entire Western
County which includes Wel-'
lington, Royal Palm Beach,
Loxahatchee, the Acreage,
Belle Glade, Pahokee, South
Bay, Canal Point & Lake Harbor
and the surrounding areas. I
was born in Pahokee, gradu-
ated with honors in 1975 from
Pahokee High School where
I was voted by the teachers
and staff as the best all-around
male student. I was the 1974-75
PHS Basketball MVP and was
named the PHS Athlete of the
Year in 1975. I graduate from
Texas College in 1979 with hon-
ors (Magna Cum Laude) with a
B.S. degree in Social Science.
At Texas College, I severed
as Senior Class President and
was Vice President of the Stu-
dent Government Association.
I also was editor of the College
Newspaper, President of Kappa
Alpha Mu National Honor Soci-
ety and was selected for induc-
tion into Who's Who Among
Students of Colleges and Uni-
versities. I think that I am the
best candidate because of my
wealth of knowledge and vast
experience. The first thing that
I'll do, if re-elected, is to im-
prove our Code Enforcement.
We really need to clean up our
city. I have recommended es-
tablishing a Code Enforcement
Advisory Board. My top five (5)
concerns are: 1. Making the city
a safe place to live which will
include addressing the drug
problem and reducing crime in
our community. 2. Improving
Code Enforcement and clean-
ing up our city. 3. Develop, cre-
ate and attract new businesses
to our community. 4. Improve
the educational and recreation-
al activities for our youths. 5.
Support decent and affordable
housing within our communi-
ties. I believe I have the neces-
sary people skills to be a good
city commissioner.
One thing I do very well is
listen to others and follow-up
on their requests. I respect their
,ideas and attempt to work with
all citizens to better improve
Pahokee. The citizenry has al-
ways been my top priority. I
have always advocated for our
citizens. I believe it is very im-
portant to have stability in mu-

Course runs until
Apr. 23

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE The sheriff's
office has brought yet another
initiative, which is aimed to
improve relations with the citi-
zenry.
As of last Thursday (Feb.
19), officials launched the Citi-
zens Police Academy to further
those efforts. According to
Lieutenant Reinaldo Alonso,
the District 12-Pahokee com-
mander for the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
the program is the first of its
kind in the Glades.
The primary purpose of the
initiative, Lt. Alonso said, is to
give interested citizens a better
understanding of how law en-
forcement works.,
Also, the course will show
recruits how to successfully be-
come the eyes and ears of the
sheriff's office.
That's the primary the role
of the PBSO Citizens Observer
Patrol, which was launched
less than two years ago. *
PBSO has been conducting
this initiative throughout the
county, including Boca Raton
and Wellington, to name just
two.
Lt. Alonso was pleased with
the turnout of the first class,
which had just over 30 citizens
who participated.
In the first session, which
began with a welcome by Sher-
iff Ric Bradshaw, the attendees
learned about the functions of
a police car.
That included the opportu-
nity to visualize a demonstra-
tion of a traffic DUI vehicle,
which is popular with the sher-
iff's office.
The second half of the three-


hour long class, taught by Ser-
geant Tony Alberti, focused on
homeland security.
Among the information pre-
sented at the session, recruits
learned the importance of
covering points of interest that
would require law enforce-
ment intervention.
For example, students were
reminded to check for activities
occurring in the area that are
not common to the citizens.
"I was happy to see that
so many people actually care
about their community," Lt.
Alonso said of the turnout.
If there happens to be an-
other in the future, it most likely
will be in Belle Glade.
There are preliminary plans
in place to eventually have a
Citizens Police Academy in
South Bay as well.
More details on these devel-
opments will be forthcoming.
As of Monday, approximate-
ly 40 people have registered
to take this 10-week course,
which is held at the Pahokee
Recreational Complex.
"That .way this is set up,
there will be different instruc-
tors which will offer different
things to our recruits," Lt. Alon-
so said.
Speaking of which, the sec-
ond session will occur tonight
in Pahokee.
All classes will be held on
Thursday nights, beginning at
approximately 6:30 p.m.
Certificates of completion
will be issued once the 10-
week course concludes, offi-
cials said.
For more information on
the Citizens Police Academy,
you could contact Sergeant R.
G. Jimenez at 996-1670 or send
him a fax at 992-1029.
Sergeant Jimenez's e-mail
address is jimemezr@pbso.

FWC arrests two for illegal gill netting


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
officers arrested two Palm Beach
County men early Wednesday and
charged them with a variety of of-
fenses related to the constitutional
ban on the use of gill nets in state
waters and illegal possession of
fish. Arrested were Charles Chris-
topher Mischloney, 37, of Green
Acres and David Allen Tortorice,
25, of West Palm Beach.


According to the FWC, Char-
lotte County Deputy W. Weis-
spsennig Jr. notified FWC Officer
Daniel Cantu of gill netters in the
Pirate Harbor canal system. At ap-
proximately 1:15 a.m., Cantu and
Weisspsennig saw the two men
gill-netting from their vessel. The
officers ordered the vessel opera-
tor to idle the vessel and secure it
at a dock.
After inspecting the vessel and


interviewing the subjects, officers
charged the men with illegal use
of monofilament net, transit viola-
tion, operating a vessel less than
22-feet-long in possession of gill
net, using an unmarked gill net,
possession of goliath grouper,
possession of out-of-season and
oversized snook, using an illegal
method to take snook and pos-
session of oversized black drunm.
Officers booked both men into


the Charlotte County Jail.
Officer Cantu seized the ves-
sel, a 16-foot, fiberglass, center-
console, model, two snook, one
black drum and one goliath grou-
per and destroyed approximately
75-100 pounds of mullet, sand
bream, sheepshead and spade-
fish.


Lake Okee Service Area Irrigation Permits Expiring


Orlando, Fla. Holders of
Water Use Irrigation Permits for
withdrawals from Lake Okeecho-
bee and its tributaries have until
the end of the month to submit
a renewal application to pre-
serve their right to use the water
source.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) Wa-
ter Use Irrigation Permit renewal
process has been underway since
October 30, 2008, in the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area, which
includes portions of Palm Beach,
Martin, Glades, Okeechobee, Lee
arid Hendry counties. All Major
General (3 million to 15 million
gallons per month) and Individual
(more than 15 million gallons per


month) permits for withdrawals
from the Lake Okeechobee Basin
expire February 28, 2009.
A workshop for permit hold-
ers is scheduled from 10 a.m. to
noon on Wednesday, February
25, at the District's Clewiston Field
Station, located at 2425 Hookers
Point Road. The workshop will
address the renewal process, pro-
cessing fees, deadlines and any
other questions permit holders
might have.
In late 2003, the District began
renewing all Individual and Major
General water use irrigation per-
mits within its boundaries in re-
gional phases. The irrigation.uses
allowed by the permits include:
*Landscape


*Golf course
Nursery
Livestock
Improved pasture
*Agriculture
The District required every
permit within each basin to come
up for renewal at the same time
so the cumulative impact of the
permits could be considered.
The last permits to be reviewed
are the approximately 420 that
allow surface water withdrawals
from the Lake Okeechobee Ba-
sin, which includes the lake, the
Caloosahatchee River and the St.
Lucie River/Canal.
The renewal process consists
of the review and reissuance of
the original permit as long as no


changes in source, irrigated acre-
age, land use or water allocation
have occurred since the origi-
nal permit was issued. A permit
modification is required if any of
those conditions have changed.
Renewal fees are based on the
permit holder's allocation.
Application reviewers encour-
age permit holders to renew
through the District's ePermitting
service at www.sfwmd.gov/ePer-
mitting. The renewal application
and more information on the re-
newal process are also available
on the District's Water Use Irriga-
tion Permit Renewal Web site.
Anyone needing further informa-
tion can call 800-547-2694.

Abandoned Spanish Settlements and Forts


Early settlements
and confrontations
shape the relations of
the Native Americans
and the Spanish

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Fiery comets streaked across
the black empty space of night,
marking their flight with long,
thin vaporous trails of smoke that
arced across the heavens.
The flaming arrows hummed
like angry bees as they plum-
meted earthward, striking the
thatched roofs of the Spanish
shelters.
Gray wisps of smoke drifted
upward from the smothering
palm fronds until amber flames,
stroked by the stiff ocean breezes,
raced hungrily across the dwell-
ings, creating white, billowing
clouds that spiraled skyward.
The quietly settled twilight
awoke to an early pre-dawn as
the roaring fires clawed at, the
night sky.
Wild, excited crowds danced
themselves into a hysterical fren-
zy as the burning inferno swept
across the entire Spanish settle-
ment.
Raging flames consumed the
huts and walled barricades, turn-
ing them into fire pyres that burnt
into the night.
The thunderous sound of many
voices rose like a storm above the
fire's crackling roar as chants and
songs echoed the unconquerable
will of the Calusa nation.
This fictitious yarn reflects Na-
tive Indian culture that resisted
Spain's early encroachments in
south Florida during the 15th and
early 16th centuries.
It is time to take "A Walk in The
Past" and read about the demise
of the Spanish forts and missions
in south Florida during the 15th
century.
South Florida was a vast wet-
land integrated with lakes, rivers,
sloughs and swamps that rose
and fell at nature's whim.
It was a hostile environment to

St. Augustine being one early settlement in Florida, it was just one of many important settlements of Florida history. Forts
in Tampa Bay, in the province of Calus and on the Miami River were instrumental in the development of foreign settlers in
Florida.


the early Spanish expeditions that
came in search of riches, but to
their dismay found warlike Indi-'
ans and hardships.
The Spanish built forts along
Florida's coast to protect their
rich laden ships and citizens from
the Native Indians and other Eu-
ropean nations.
Early Spanish forts and settle-
ments in south Florida were lo-
cated on Tampa Bay, Charlotte
Harbor and the Miami River.
These locations were strategic
areas that provided fresh water
and natural harbors for ships.
The fort locations built in south
Florida during the 15th century
are listed below:
A fort and settlement on
an islet in the province of Calus


called St. Antonio.
It was started with thirty six
houses that were encircled with a
wall of logs and sticks.
The Calusa Indians rebelled
against the Spanish and Pedro
Menendez Marques beheaded
Casique Felipe and twenty-two
other leading Indians.
He abandoned the fort in
1571.
A fort was started on
Tampa Bay with twenty-four
houses.,
The supplies went bad due to
heavy rains and the soldiers grew
weak.
The Tocobaga Indians killed
everyone in the fort.
Pedro Menendez Marques
burnt the Indian villages and fort


to the ground. The Spanish aban-
doned the fort in 1567.
A fort and mission was
started in 1567 on the Miami Riv-
er.
The Tequesta Indians killed
several soldiers and constantly
threatened the fort.
The Spanish abandoned the
fort in 1570.

There was a religious fervor in
Spain among the men of the cloth
to Christianize the Indians in the
New World.
The Spanish government en-
couraged. missions in south Flor-
ida and for good reason.
It was a lot easier for a Span-
iard in South Florida to sleep at
night if he knew the Native Amer-


ican was following the Christian
creed, "Love thy neighbor as thy-
self" rather than following an an-
cient creed that would make the
Spaniard's decapitated head the
life of the party.
The Calusa, Tequesta and
other tribes in south Florida were
fiercely independent and warlike.
The religious and social cus-
toms that they believed were in-
grained in their lives by tradition.
Some of their customs were
bad.
A child was sacrificed when
a Casique (king) lost a child and
house hold members were sacri-
ficed when a Casique died.
Yearly human sacrifices were
made to their idols.
Spanish priest attempted to
teach the Indians the Christian


doctrine, which conflicted with
many of the Indian's barbarous
customs.
Many honest priests practiced
and lived the Christian doctrine
in their hearts and were willing to
risk or lose their lives to convert
the Indians.
Unfortunately, many Spaniards
marched under the banner of
Christianity in a traditional form
and failed to adhere to the true
"Doctrine of Faith."
The Spanish soldiers per-
formed barbarous acts under the
guise of Christianity that spawned
seeds of hate and mistrust in the
Indian communities.
Christian doctrine and the con-
flicting roles that Spanish priest
and soldiers lived were confusing
to the Indians and encouraged
them to maintain all their reli-
gious and social customs.
The Jesuit missions were a
failure in South Florida in the 15th
and early 16th centuries.
Forts and missions were com-
pletely abandoned in south Flori-
da until the later part of the 16th
century.
There will be more "Tale Tales"
in next week's edition "A Walk in
The Past" when the Spanish re-
turn to south Florida in the late
1600s.

In 2006, Clewiston lost to Lely
in the Class 4A regional quarter-
finals.,
But Lee, who knows the vast
potential that his team carries,
preferred to be realistic when
asked on Clewiston's chances of
advancing to the Class 4A region-
al final on Saturday.
"All we can do is work hard
and do our best," Lee said in a
telephone interview on Tuesday
afternoon, while preparing for the
team's bus ride to Naples.
"God's in control, no matter
how we see it.
"This is what we worked hard
for since the summer," Lee con-
tinued.
"This team has the chance to
make its own history," Lee said.
Clewiston's last trip to the FH-
SAA Final Four was in 1992.
Glades Day also earned the op-
portunity to make its own history,
as well.
After a 49-45 road win against
2008 Class 2A state runner-up
Sagemont (Weston), Glades Day
knew who its next opponent


was.
The Gators (20-6 after the Class
2A regional quarterfinal win)
played Summit Christian in West
Palm Beach on Tuesday night.
It marked the fourth time that
the archrivals faced off against
each other.
Glades Day lost two of three
meetings to Summit Christian pri-
or to the Class 2A regional semifi-
nal matchup.
That includes Glades Day's 45-
44 loss in the District 13-2A cham-
pionship game.
Had Glades Day won that
game, then they would have been
the home team Tuesday night.
The Glades Day-Summit Chris-
tian winner will play on Saturday
night for the right to move on the
Class 2A Final Four, which is on
March 5.
If Glades Day makes it to the
Class 2A Final Four, it would be

Governor names 'Tobacco Free Florida Week'


TALLAHASSEE-Governor
Charlie Crist has proclaimed Feb.
27 through March 7, as Tobacco
Free Florida Week to promote
smoke-free living while remind-
ing tobacco users of programs
and support that are available to
help them quit.
During Tobacco Free Florida
Week, Floridians are encouraged
to take the pledge to be tobacco
free on www.tobaccofreeflor-
idaweek.com.
In partnership with FOX Sports
Florida and Sun Sports, pro and
college teams around the State
are rallying behind the campaign.
Throughout the week, Tobacco
Free Florida will be the focal point
of eight sporting events for the
following teams: Orlando Magic,
Florida State University men's
basketball, Florida Marlins, Miami
HEAT, Tampa Bay Rays, Florida
Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning


and University of Florida men's
basketball (see game schedule
below).
Total attendance at the eight
events is projected to top 100,000
with the televised games reach-
ing millions more across the state
on Sun Sports and FOX Sports
Florida.
"Tobacco Free Florida Week
presents a tremendous platform
for us to utilize our unique media
assets, along with those of our
sports team partners across the
state, in a concentrated, highly-
visible way and encourage Florid-
ians to pledge to be tobacco free,"
said Steve Liverani, Sr. VP/GM of
FOX Sports Florida & Sun Sports.
"The consequences of tobacco
use are well-documented and we
are proud to be part of this call to
action pledge campaign."
During the week, the Tobac-
co Free Florida Street Team and


Smokifier vans will travel around
the state to spread the message
and host school rallies featuring
athletes from Florida's pro teams.
"Tobacco Free Florida Week
is an opportunity to unite Florid-
ians against the leading cause of
preventable illness, disability and
premature death in Florida, says
Kim Berfield, Deputy Secretary of
the Florida Department of Health.
"By combining efforts of pro-
fessional and collegiate teams,
local County Health Departments
and other key tobacco prevention
stakeholders, we can further ex-
tend the reach of the campaign's
message."
To counter the advertising ef-
forts of tobacco companies that
spends more money on advertis-
ing in Florida than in any other
state, Tobacco Free Florida's
statewide youth prevention adver-
tising campaign will also aunch


that week, with television, radio,
cinema and print ads across the
state, encouraging youth to "Be
Free" from tobacco.
Smoking is responsible for up-
wards of 29,000 deaths in Florida
each year, and thousands more
suffer from cancer, heart disease
and other chronic diseases re-
lated to tobacco use and second-
hand smoke.
Nearly one out of every five
adult's smoke, and 28.8 million
packs of cigarettes are bought or
smoked by youth in Florida each
year.
To access the pledge, visit
www.tobaccofreefloridaweek.

Local cessation class will begin
on Thursday, Feb. 26, in LaBelle
and Clewiston, please contact the
Health Department at 863-674-

register.

SFWMD committed to Solving Weedy Worries


District and its
partners recognize
National Invasive
Weeds Awareness
Week

West Palm Beach, FL -While
exotic pythons in the Everglades
have slithered across recent head-
lines, an invader equally insidi-
ous to the natural environment
remains at the forefront of the
South Florida Water Management
District's (SFWMD) mission to
manage and protect the region's
water resources.
Non-native plants continue to
stress the natural environment by
crowding out native vegetation,
which a diverse array of wildlife
depend on for food and habitat.
Invasive plants can also clog
flood control canals and struc-
tures, impede waterway naviga-
tion and impact recreation and
other facets of the Florida econ-
6my.
As National Invasive Weeds
Awareness Week begins this
week, the SFWMD continues
its work to control exotic plants
while at the same time identifying
and mustering defenses against
new invaders.
The District has invested at
least $20 million in each of the
past five years to remove the most
threatening invasive species, such
as Old World climbing fern, Bra-
zilian pepper and water hyacinth.
In 2008 alone, the District
treated more than 92,400 acres
to combat Melaleuca, torpedo
grass, the climbing fern and other
offenders.
"Invasion of exotic plant spe-
cies remains one of the most seri-
ous environmental issues facing
Florida," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chair Eric Buermann.
"Controlling these invaders
is a key component of the Dis-
trict's environmental restoration
mission and is crucial to public
safety.".
Along with environmental and
public safety concerns, exotic
plant species cost the agricultural
industry alone more than $20 bil-
lion annually, according to the
North American Weed Manage-
ment Association.
SFWMD Invests in Biocontrols
and Science:

threatening the Everglades.


Park in Martin County.
The SFWMD, in partnership
with the U.S. Department of Ag-
riculture's Agricultural Research
Service, released a thousand Neo-
musotima conspurcatalis moths
at the park in 2008.
The moths lay eggs that morph
into caterpillars that chew through
dense stands of the invasive Old
World climbing fern without
harming native Florida ferns.
The SFWMD supports contin-
ued applied scientific research
that improves management ef-
forts.
To further facilitate that ef-
fort, the District participates in
key partnerships with agencies
including: the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC); the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion; the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service; the USDA's Agricultural
Research Service; the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers and the U.S.
Department of the Interior.
An example of these partner-
ships was the coordination be-
tween the District and the FWC to
combat Brazilian pepper in Water


Conservation Area 3, benefiting
the native population of deer and
birds.
The District has taken several
other steps toward curbing inva-
sive plant species:
July 2008: The SFWMD part-
nered with Palm Beach County
to remove non-native plants from
150 acres in the DuPuis Manage-
ment Area.
July 2008: The District Gov-
erning Board approved an agree-
ment with the USDA's Agricultural
Research Service to continue de-
veloping biological controls in
the form of tiny insects to fight
Brazilian pepper and Old World
climbing fern.
March 2008: Scientists intro-
duced nearly 20,000 grass carp
into the North New River Canal by
Fort Lauderdale. The hungry fish,
which do not breed, feast on the
rapidly growing invasive hydrilla
plant that can clog structures in
SFWMD flood-control canals.
A Success Story:
Melaleuca remains an ex-
ample of the District's success in
managing exotics.
Once covering hundreds of


thousands of acres, this species
now is only occasionally spotted
on District-managed lands.
What seemed to be an insur-
mountable invasive species now
is being successfully managed
through sustained interagency
commitment.
The District-led Melaleuca
management program is in its
nineteenth .year, and resource
management agencies estimate
this program has cost nearly $40
million to date.
Florida's Melaleuca manage-
ment program is a model for in-
vasive species management na-
tionally.
Continued Vigilance:
The SFWMD has located two
invasive aquatic plants newly dis-
covered in Florida, Luziola subin-
tegra and Azolla pinnata.
Containing these new prob-
lems in a "rapid response" effort
has required clearly identifying
the plants and then determining
their best management practices.
Residents also play an impor-
tant role in the protection of South
Florida's environment.
One of the primary ways that
invasive species, both plant and
animal, end up in the natural envi-
ronment is when they are thrown
out or released by people who no
longer want them.
For example, emptying a tropi-
cal aquarium full of live but non-
native aquatic plants can have
serious consequences for the en-
vironment.
SFWMD Senior Scientist Mike
Bodle discussed invasive plants
and the District's management
efforts.

District's efforts to control exotic
invasive species, visit www.sf-
wmd.gov.

A Note from the School
Nurse
School District policy states


that absolutely NO medicine can
be brought to school by a student
in any form or at any time. These
include prescription and over-the-
counter medicines such as cough
drops, Tylenol, cold pills, Anbesol,
antibiotic cream, etc. They are all
considered DRUGS ON CAMPUS
by the school police. The only ex-
ception is asthma inhalers; how-
ever, the school nurse must have
a written order from the doctor,
renewed yearly, allowing the stu-
dent to carry it. Medicines allowed
on campus must have written or-
ders from doctor and parent and
are securely locked in a medicine
cabinet located in the school
clinic. Only adults (parents/guard-
ians) are allowed to bring medi-
cine to school; they must have
the appropriate orders and in a
prescription-labeled bottle. The
nurse recommends that for con-
venience, parents should ask the
pharmacy to split the prescription
into two bottles-one for school
and one for home. Be reminded
that medicines can not be sent
back and forth with the students.
For further questions, please con-
tact the school administration or
the school nurse at 561-993-8700.

Afterschool Mentoring available to local


Programs
The Covenant Villas Youth En-
richment Program is a group of
mentoring programs held after
school to serve youths between
the ages of 8 18 years old. These
programs are geared to assisting
youths that are having problems
at home, school, and those that
are at risk of dropping out. The
programs assist youths with their
homework, self-image, anger
management and job readiness
skills. Our programs also help
youths that are transitioning from
childhood to adolescence to avoid
things such as; drug usage, gang
participation, and violence.
We are currently seeking men-
tors that want to make a positive
difference by contributing one
hour of their time once a week.
For more information on how
to become a mentor, contact
Jeanette Keaton-Plair or Sherry
Buxton at 561-992-8258 or 561-

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Walking: Long and Slow, Short and Fast?


Some people may wonder if
it's better to walk a long distance
at a slow pace or a short distance
at a fast pace.
Well, studies have shown that
no matter the distance or the
pace, "hoofing it" adds so many
health benefits.
So it's better to walk some,
than nothing at all!
To burn the most calories
however, (from every minute


that you are squeezing out of you
busy schedule) you should walk
very briskly.
Speedy walking can help your
heart and lungs to become stron-
ger.
A new study by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) found that brisk walking
on a regular basis can also length-
en the lives of people who have
diabetes.


Some people may also won-
der if walking in the morning is
better than walking at night.
Well, a calorie burned, is a cal-
orie burned, whether it's morning
or night.
The important thing is to
choose a time that fits best with
your schedule so that you are
more likely to stick with it.
No matter how young or how
old you are, walking is one of the


easiest things we can do for our
bodies.
Grab a friend, your children or
your pet and "hit the pavement."
Turn it into an adventure, and
you'll have some fun while be-
coming healthier.
Walking can help build and
maintain healthy bones, muscles
and joints, and reduce the risk
of coronary heart disease, high
blood pressure, and diabetes.


It can also help reduce symp-
toms of anxiety and depression
and help to control the swelling
and pain from arthritis.
Walking can also help to con-
trol weight, build lean muscle and
reduce fat.
So get out there and get mov-
ing.


FWC use magnets to keep crocodiles away


Magnets usually attract, but the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) want
magnets to do just the opposite.
FWC biologists are studying if
magnets can keep state-endan-
gered American crocodiles from
returning to situations where
they are not welcome, primarily
in neighborhoods in Miami-Dade
and Monroe counties.
Crocodile-human interactions
have increased as the croco-
dile population has recovered.
One technique to resolve these
conflicts is translocation. This
involves capturing the croco-
dile and moving it to suitable
crocodile habitat as far away as
possible, in an attempt to keep
it away from an area. However,
translocation is seldom effective.
FWC biologists have found that
translocated crocodiles will travel
an average of 10 miles per week
to return to their capture site, in a
practice called "homing." Others


never make it because they are
,hit and killed by vehicles as they
cross roads. Some may be killed
by other crocodiles at the release
site or during their journey back.


In an effort to break the "hom-
ing" cycle, FWC biologists have
initiated a new study. Crocodile
agents have been instructed to at-
tach magnets to both sides of the

removed at the


crocodile's head at the capture
site. It is hoped the magnets will
disorient the crocodiles and dis-
rupt their navigation, so they can't
find their way back to the capture
site. The magnets are removed
from the crocodile's head upon
release. Agents will also secure a
colored tag to the crocodile's tail,
so returning crocodiles can be
identified later.
"Scientists in Mexico have re-
ported success in using magnets
to break the homing cycle," said
Lindsey Hord, FWC crocodile re-
sponse coordinator. "The results
,of the study are promising. If it
proves successful here, we-could
gain an effective technique to re-
solve crocodile-human conflicts."
If a nuisance crocodile contin-
ues to return to the capture site,
or its behavior presents an un-
acceptable risk to people, under
certain circumstances, it could
be removed from the wild and
placed into captivity.'

Potential skin damage from


"Black Henna" tattoo


Chubby Babies Are Cute,


But Are They Healthy?


Tallahassee The Florida De-
partment of Health (DOH) warns
students of potential health risks
from having a temporary "black
henna" tattoo applied to their
skin.
This issue is especially impor-
tant as more than 250,000 stu-
dents are expected to hit Florida
beaches for 2009 "Spring Break"
which extends from mid Febru-
ary to mid April.
Last year, DOH received 17 re-
ports of severe allergic reactions
to temporary black henna tattoos
applied in one of Florida's beach
communities.
"Black henna" tattoos have
become popular in recent years
because they look more like a
"real" tattoo.
In reality, there is no such thing
as "black henna."
True henna paste is green or
greenish brown and must remain
on the skin eight hours or over-
night to leave a brown or reddish-


brown design.
The paste for a "black henna"
tattoo is black or brownish-black
and can be removed in one hour
or less to leave a black design.
The danger of "black henna"
tattoos is that the black color may
be a result of the addition of black
hair dye, which may contain a
toxic chemical called para-phe-
nylenediamine (PPD).
PPD can cause severe allergic
reactions in some individuals.
The general progression of
symptoms is itching or burning,
blistering, oozing, scab forma-
tion, and sometimes permanent
scarring in the shape of the tattoo
design.
Symptoms may occur within a
few hours or up to a few weeks,
depending upon the concentra-
tion of PPD in the paste and how
allergic a person is.
Medical attention should be
sought immediately upon any
symptoms of an allergic reaction.


In addition to medical attention,
allergic reactions should be re-
ported electronically to DOH on
the Injury Report Form found on
the department website at www.
doh.state.fl.us/Environment/com-
munity/Black_Henna/index.htm.
Temporary tattoo hints in-
clude:
Ensure the paste is green or
greenish-brown.
Ask to see the ingredients,
which should be ground henna
leaves, lemon or grapefruit juice,
and possibly botanical oil.
Ask how long the paste should
stay on skin.
The answer should be eight
hours to overnight.
DOH promotes, protects and
improves the health of all people
in Florida. For more information
about DOH programs, visit www.
doh.state.fl.us.


How can you tell
when your child is
developing a weight
problem?
Obesity (being overweight)
has become a major public
health concern for all ages.
Believe it or not, the prob-
lems actually start while you are
a baby.
People may say "oh what a
cute chubby little baby," but did
you know that overweight ba-
bies usually grow up to be over-
weight adults?
Obesity has been linked to
diabetes, heart disease and some
cancers.
It may be surprising, but even
six month old babies can show
evidence of diabetes and high
cholesterol.
It's so easy to stick a bottle


of


in a crying baby's mouth, but
sometimes it may not be hunger
that's causing the crying and you
are just training your baby to eat
something when they are upset.
Babies usually eat every three
hours or so, and they can even
recognize when they are full, so
don't try to force your little one
to "finish the bottle" if they don't
seem to want to continue eat-
ing.
Also, babies can develop a
"sweet tooth" at an early age.
Once your baby is big enough
to eat baby .foods, start them on
some healthy vegetable types,
because once the sweet stuff
touches their lips, you'll be forev-
er trying to get them to eat their
peas and green beans!
Once you start giving them
100% fruit juice, give them no
more than 6 ounces a day.
Fruit juices have lots of extra
sugar and extra sugar means ex-


tra calories.
So if someone tells you that
you have a "cute chubby baby"
you may want to talk to your
healthcare provider to make
sure that you are not over feed-
ing your baby.
Healthy babies can grow into
healthy adults.
Remember to wash your
hands, be healthy and be happy!

nicipal government. High turn-
over hurts the city image.That's
one reason that I have worked
very hard to ensure fair grievance
procedures for all our employees.
I have also recommended'that the
city create a Grievance Board and/
or a Civic Service Board to bet-
ter protect our employees rights
when it comes to the termination
of an employee. I thitk 6veraill
that I have been a very good and
effective city commissioner. For
those citizens who have regu-
larly attended our city commis-
sion meetings, I think they would
agree that I have been one of our
best and most consistent com-
missioners over the past 16 years
in office. Experience counts, edu-
cation is important, knowledge
is needed and integrity is a must.
Re-elect someone who you can
both depend on and trust.
Taranza McKelvin
Note: He's running against
South Bay commissioner Esther
Berry, who's the incumbent.
My name is Taranza Leon Mck-
elvin and I am a native of South
Bay Florida. I am the son of Kathy
Mckelvin and Austin Lewis. I grew
up in the household with my
wonderful mother and grandpar-
ents Robert and Sallie Mae Mck-
elvin. I am the loving husband
Katisha and the proud father of
Prince and Taranza Mckelvin Jr. I
received my primary and second-
ary education from Rosenwald
Elementary, Lake Shore Middle
and Glades Central Community
High School. Upon graduating
from Glades Central, I obtained
a higher level of education from
Florida A&M University with a
Bachelors of Science in Criminal
Justice and Sociology. I will grad-
uate on March 7 with a Masters
of Science in Mental Health and
School Guidance from Webster
University. I currently serve my
community by being an advo-
cate for change and providing
Social Work services. South Bay
is a community that has been de-
prived for many years in regards
to its lack of jobs, lack of resourc-
es, lack of solid infrastructure,
limited economy, educational
challenges, crime rate, and lack of
community redevelopment, lack
business development, and lack
of improved housing. South Bay's
citizens. have ultimately suffered
as a result. Of the approximate
4,000 residents of South Bay, sta-
tistics indicate that approximately
853 or more of the total popula-
tion is unemployed. The unem-
ployment rate and the median
household income directly effect
the city's economy. Additionally,
the School Accountability Report
shows our local school has not
met academic standards and has
maintained a D average for the
past two years. The citizens of
South Bay will benefit from my
leadership and my ability to get
things done.
My leadership brings new in-
sight, new vision, and new ideas
for the betterment of our com-
munity and our citizens. I am
dedicated to creating jobs for the
unemployed. I am dedicated to
working with the local schools
to obtain the resources needed
to help improve their academic
standings in efforts to make our
students more globally competi-
tive. I am dedicated to increasing
business development in efforts
to make South Bay more mar-
ketable for means of community
redevelopment. I am dedicated
to providing the citizens of South
Bay with adequate resources
needed to improve their quality
of life. I am dedicated to improv-
ing the housing standards and to
creating affordable housing for
everyone. I am dedicated to im-
proving the city's infrastructure
in order to provide cleaner water,
sanitary sanitation, hazard free


roads, improved sidewalks, and
competitively affordable telecom-
munications. I am dedicated to
corroboratively working with the
citizens, local businesses, and
legislative entities to improve our
community in every aspect.
The structural development of
our community hasn't changed in
the last 20 to 30 years. I am27years
of age and I can't remember any
new buildings or state of the arts
centers that have been construct-
ed within our community. I feel
like I have excellent interpersonal,
skills and that I am'equipped to
communicate and conduct busi-
ness with anyone on any level.
At all times I try to remain unbi-
ased and non-judgmental. I place
great effort into working well with
others. As a result, I have been
equipped with the characteristics
that would contribute to making
me a successful politician. Sta-
bility in municipal government
directly affects the stability of the
community. The municipal gov-
ernment is responsible for main-
taining leadership roles in order
to effectively govern the city in
which it serves. If the municipal
government is unstable, their
ability to be effective leaders is
diminished. As a result, the city
in which they serve suffers on a.
multifaceted level. The citizens of
South Bay need to know that I am
humbled and dedicated to being
the best commissioner that I can
be. I am here to serve the citizens
of South Bay to make our city is
a better place to live, work, and
enjoy life.
Shirley Walker-Turner
Note: In her re-election bid,
she's running against Dorothy
Davis, the challenger.
I am Shirley M. Walker -Turner
a native of the Glades. I am mar-
ried to Johnny Turner and have
two sons, Javin Walker and Joc-
quin Turner. I attended local
schools and received a diploma
from Lake Shore Jr.- Sr. High
School. I earned a Bachelor De-
gree in Sociology from Bethune
Cookman College and a Master
of Education Degree from Florida
Atlantic University. I am currently
employed with Lutheran Services
Florida as Director of PEPPI. Head
Start in Belle Glade. I am respon-
sible for planning and implement-
ing age and developmentally ap-
propriate services for children
ages three to five to prepare them
for kindergarten while working
with their parents to better enable
them to be advocates for their
families. I write grants and man-
age a $1.5 million dollar budget.
I am the best candidate for the
job because I have a vested in-
terested in the city of South Bay.
I have been involved in South
Bay's politics long before becom-
ing a commissioner and later the
mayor. I have worked to identify
the critical needs of the city and
to help bring about solutions. I
have met with Governor Crist,
Palm Beach County Commission-
ers, Port of Palm beach Commis-
sioners, Congressman Hasting
and many others to discuss the
need for jobs in our city and to
advocate for the inland port to
be located on Highway 27 near
South Bay. The port will provide
jobs which, pay livable wages
thus reducing our unemployment
rate which is currently about
twenty-three percent. One of the
first things I want to in office is
to work with the commissioners
and manager to secure funds for
our infrastructure to include road
and rail network, transportation,
communications, water and sew-
er lines etc. A good infrastructure
is necessary for future growth of
the city which translates into jobs
for our residents. I will also revisit
and update our strategic plan to
assure that it is realistic and con-
tinues to meet the needs of the city
today. This is necessary to assure
that we have clear visions for the
city and identify some strategies
and funding to meet our goals.
The top five concerns that I


feel need to be met in the city are:
1. Hire a city manager. 2. Seek
funds for a community center
which is structurally approved to
be a disaster shelter when need-
ed. 3. Mobilize the community
to advocate keeping Rosenwald
Elementary School open in our
community. 4. Develop incentives
to attract businesses to include
the Inland Port and home owners
to ,our city. This will provide jobs
for the residents and increasing
our tax base. 5. Seek funds to
"repairour infrastructure to meet
future needs. I have strong people
skills; I am considerate of others
views and I am a good listener. I
give respect and I receive it. The
citizens are always my priority.
I will listen and advise them on
issues of their concern. I invite
them to come to the commission
meetings and share their con-
cerns reference agenda items and
other community concerns.Sta-
bility in municipal.government is
very important and necessary. It
demonstrates to the county, state
and federal government that the
municipality is capable of manag-
ing and accounting for the public
funds entrusted in their care. The
citizens of South Bay know that I
organized the Concerned Citizens
of South Bay. I worked to have the
prison constructed outside the
city limits so that the families on
the southwest side of the city and
the children attending Rosenwald
Elementary School would not be
able to see the prison. In addition
we have over one hundred thou-
sand dollars to be used toward a
community center. I will always
work to bring the best to the resi-
dents of South Bay.
Mary Kendall
Note: The Belle Glade com-
missioner is running against Wil-
liam Grear Jr.
I am native of Alabama, but
have been a resident of Belle
Glade since 1952. I have three
children and four grandchildren. I
presently teach Reading to tenth
and ninth graders at Glades Cen-
tral Community High School. I
am in my fourth year of the D. R.
0. P. program. I am the incum-
bent and am committed to con-
tinuing the work of job creation,
economic development, youth
involvement, addressing senior
concerns, maintaining our CRA
focus, homelessness awareness
and possible solutions, education
partnerships, health care needs,
local business options and solu-
tions, housing needs, transparent
budget processes, accountability
to citizens, and equitable service
to everyone. If re-elected, I would
like to, continue working with
city, county, state, and national
staff and elected officials to cre-
ate a long range plan for Tri-Cities
Economic Development. In so
doing, I will work for guarantees
that ensure our city is represented
equitably as we continue to form
coalitions that promise to bring
better service in this area. Thus I
will facilitate the improvement of
communication between the City
and our residents. I would like to
serve the citizens and residents of
Belle Glade another term because
there is more work to be done.
Our town needs me to continue
as a representative and ambassa-
dor who is willing to make sound
judgments. I promise to continue
researching and examining mate-
rials for agenda, action items, and
policy decisions as I serve with a
"listening ear." Stability is a must.
Public, private, and non-profits
must see our government as an
entity that smoothly sets policy
as it responds to requests of citi-
zenry and agencies. Disjuncture
impedes our ability to proceed
with success and progress for
our diverse community. Constant
change of staff will hinder our abil-
ity to function as informed elected
officials. I have served well and il
re-elected, I'll serve well again
without compromise.
Reverend J. R. Harris
Note: He's campaigning


against Mary Wilkerson for a
Belle Glade seat, to be vacated by
Shelly Miller.
Because the majority of the
current city commission has been
fiscally irresponsible, the city is on
the verge of bankruptcy. Elected
officials and city employees must
become true public servants.
To enjoy a better quality of life,
we need a holistic approach to
government. We deserve a com-
missioner who believes it is not
enough to build better neighbor-
hoods, but one who will also be
neighborly. We must address all
the needs of our citizens, and re-
turn to Government of the People,
By the People, and for the People.
We need a commissioner who
will: Plan Growth and Develop-
ment. Improve public transpor-
tation, streets, and sidewalks.
Protect and Preserve our natural


resources. Continue to support

Let the lower lights be burning!


By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
The song-writer was inspired to write
this gospel song by hearing the follow-
ing story told by Dwight L. Moody: On a
dark, stormy night, a boat, rocking and
plunging, neared the Cleveland harbor.
"Are you sure this is Cleveland?"
asked the captain, seeing only one light
from the lighthouse.
"Quite sure," replied the pilot.
"Where are the lower lights?"
"Gone out, sir."
"Can you make the harbor?"
"We must, or perish, sir!"
With a strong hand and a brave heart
the old pilot turned the wheel.
But alas, in the darkness he missed
the channel, and with a crash upon the
rocks the boat was shivered, and many
a life lost in the watery grave.
The Master will take care of the great
lighthouse, let us keep the lower lights
burning."
The song was published in 1871 in
"The Charm," written by Philip Bliss.


Jesus said, "Ye are the light of the
world ... and it giveth light unto all ... let
you light so shine" (See Matthew 5:14-
16).
The world often does not see the evi-
dence of God.
Nor do they read the Bible. They do
not go to church either -- so if there will
ever be a gospel influence on them it
will come from those who are Chris-
tians.
Your Christian example is so impor-
tant to the lost as well as to other Chris-
tians.
We are the lower lights that save oth-
ers from loss.
James 5:10 says, "Take, my breth-
ren, the prophets, who have spoken in
the name of the Lord, for an example of
suffering affliction and of patience.
We can hear lessons on patience and
faithfulness but an example is so much
more helpful.
When the message is lived we learn
best.
We are challenged to be faithful to


the Lord when we see how Isaiah, Jer-
emiah and Amos suffered.
The faithfulness of Daniel inspires
us.
To see how the Lord repeatedly
blessed Daniel for his good choices en-
courages us to do the same.
Gideon was a great leader who led a
great victory.
His personal dedication inspired the
others.
Just before the great victory over the
Midianites, he instructed the small 300
man army what to do and then said,
"Do as I do" (Judges 7:17).
How challenging are the leaders
who set the pace and bear their part of
the load.
Gideon visually showed the right life
style.
When Israel was discouraged and
most were ready to quit, Jonathan
shone as an example of courage.
With only the armor bearer at his
side he challenged the entire Philistine
army.


What a light in a dark time.
Others following his example
stepped up and a great victory was won
(I Sam. 14).
On the way to Rome, Paul's ship was
caught in a terrible storm which lasted
for days.
The outlook was dark.
Hope was gone.
But Paul received encouraging words
from the Lord.
He passed this on to the others say-
ing, "be of good cheer: for I believe God
that it shall be even as it was told me."
We need to be a lower light when
others are discouraged.
They will be shipwrecked without
hope of the gospel.
There are so many who need words
of comfort. Pass them on.


The wonderful thing about Tiggers


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
There is within each of us a desire
to explain complex truths in a simple
way.'
That's why adults like the three min-
ute children's message just as much or
more than the kids!
That's why I want to share with you
my fascination with Tigger (tee eye-
double gee errr).
As the Tigger Song on Youtube goes,
"The wonderful thing about Tiggers is
Tiggers are wonderful things. Their tops
are made out of rubber.
"Their bottoms are made out of
springs. They're bouncy, trouncy, floun-
cy, pouncy -- Fun, fun, fun, fun, FUN!"
When Tigger first comes to the 100-
acre wood, he shows up in the middle of
the night at Winnie the Pooh's house.
Pooh asks him to be quiet and sleep
and in the morning he could have a
bowl of honey.
Tigger said, "That's what tigers like
best!"
But in the morning, when Tigger
tastes the honey, it turns out that tigers
don't like honey after all.
So Pooh walks and Tigger bounces


to Piglet's house to munch on some
of Piglet's favorite food haycorns
(acorns).
But when he tastes a haycorn, he
finds out that tigers don't like hay-
corns.
So Pooh and Piglet walk, and Tigger
bounces, on down to Eeyore's place to
sample some of Eeyore's favorite food
- thistles.
It comes as no surprise that we soon
discover that tigers don't like thistles
either.
Right away, we learn that although
Tigger may not be the sharpest tack
in the box, he is always happy, always
positive, always confident.
He might be hungry, but that doesn't
keep him from bouncing.
Tigger is the personification of "look-
ing on the bright side."
A tigger makes the most of each and
every moment and in doing so fills his
world with joy.
Tigger bounces in joy, although his
bouncing annoys the always practical
and reasonable Rabbit, who thinks it's
impractical and unreasonable to be
bouncing and so filled with joy all of the
time.


Once, when Rabbit was particularly
perturbed with Tigger and his bouncing,
he hatched a plan to change Tigger by
taking Tigger deep into the woods and
waiting for him to bounce out ahead of
the other animals as he always did, and
then to run home, leaving Tigger lost
and alone in the woods overnight.
"Mark my words," says Rabbit, "he'll
be a different Tigger altogether."
"Why," said Pooh. "Because he'll
be a humble Tigger. Because he'll be a
Sad Tigger, a Melancholy Tigger, a Small
and Sorry Tigger..."
"I should hate him to go on being
Sad," said Piglet.
"Tiggers never go on being Sad," ex-
plained Rabbit.
"They get over it with Astonishing
Rapidity. I asked Owl and that's what he
said, they always get over it with Aston-
ishing Rapidity."
No life is without sadness.
No life is without troubles and trials.
But Tigger, it seems, and tigger-like
people, find a way to get over these
things with "Astonishing Rapidity."
Give thanks to God!
For God makes it possible for each
and everyone of us to be joyful.


We find in the Psalms, "God has
turned my mourning into dancing; God
has taken off my sackcloth and clothed
me with joy."
God makes it possible for each and
everyone of us to bounce like Tigger.
Even Rabbit eventually comes to ap-
preciate Tigger's bounciness.
Tigger brings something special to
the hundred acre wood. Tigger brings
joy.
We Aeed more Tiggers in the world.
We need more joy in the world.
We need more bouncing.
Life is bigger and better when it is
lived joyfully.
Let us ask God for joy and let us con-
centrate on the blessings and the good
things of life.
Let us not be anxious about the bad,
but give it to God.
Joy will make us better.
God will make it possible.


Words? Acts? Which tells the truth?


The Bible as a Sudoku
puzzle, or as an
affirmation of God?

By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When I worked with people having
addiction problems, friends and family
would tell me "But he said....!" and find
out what was said didn't always match
what happened.
They learned quickly not to look at
words but at what was going on.
One of my professors wrote a book
called "Doing the Truth" and main-
tained that it's not our words but our
actions that tell who we really are, and
what we really stand for and believe.
The New Testament accounts of the
last days of the Lord on earth has one of
those involved in Jesus' execution (Pon-
tius Pilate) asking "What is truth?"
The answer is not always in the
words, but more reliably found in ac-
tions.
When it comes to the nature of God
and our relationship with Him, people


will wonder "What can we believe?"
There are many conflicting interpre-
tations and understandings about "the
Word of God' and what it all means.
I know of people that regard find-
ing "the truth" as treating the Bible
like some sort of giant Sudoku puzzle,
stringing Bible verses together with the
right verses in the right order and saying
"There! I've solved it!"
Looking at people and their actions
as well as their words gives the best pic-
ture.
Sometimes a clear picture is in what
is not said, too, letting the deed speak
volumes and really telling the truth.
A recent lesson used one Sunday
morning was about the healing of a
leper (Mark 1: 40-45).
A leper approaches the Lord and
says "If you choose, you can make me
clean" The Lord responds "I do choose,
Be made clean" and the man was
healed.
Then the man is told to perform the
customary ritual offering and "See that
you say nothing to anyone."
The man instead tells everyone; so
many people that Jesus could no longer
go into town openly and stayed in the


country.
People came to Him anyway.
Evidently, he was "mobbed" be-
cause of the indiscretions of the cured
leper; and wanted not to have it turn
out this way, with "people coming from
every quarter (v.45)."
The man did what he was told not
to do.
Ordinarily, that would have been a
no-no, or a reason for getting angry, or
telling the man "See what you did Now
I can't even go into town!" or maybe
"Now you've done it! You're going to get
sick again. That will serve you right!"
Of course, none of these things hap-
pens.
It is in the deed, the act of kindness,
of healing, of love, that the true nature
of the Lord is revealed.
Words are only incidental to the act.
The man goes on his way, healed,
and we hear nothing else about him;
not even if he is thankful or not.
The deed tells the story; it stands by
itself as a witness of the true nature of
the Lord's character and what He feels
about us..
There is another account of ten lep-
ers who are cleansed (Luke 17:11 ff) and


only one returns to give thanks.
Again, no lecture on "Where's your
manners" to the nine, or nothing about
them; they are left to enjoy the benefits
and blessings of their contact with the
Lord and then go on their way.
The one who gives thanks is also
told to go on his way, his faith has made
him whole.
All benefit from an act of outpour-
ing love that speaks volumes about the
nature of God's love for His creatures,
better than the stringing of Bible verses
together or trying to find out what "The
Lord said..." of quoting "That's what the
good book says."
Therein is the heart of knowing an-
other, of knowing the truth of a person,
of knowing about the Lord as well, and
a firm answer about "What is truth!"

Jews For Jesus to speak at
church in Belle Glade
Greg Savitt of Jews for Jesus will
speak at Community United Methodist
Church, 401 SW First Street, Belle Glade
on March 1 at 11 a.m. Jews for Jesus
uses creative methods and contempo-
rary issues to present the message that
Jesus is the Messiah to Jewish people
around the world.
Mr. Savitt is the director of the south
Florida branch of Jews for Jesus.
Mr. Savitt was born and raised as a


conservative Jew in the Chicago area.
A friend began telling Mr. Savitt about
Jesus.
He listened and experienced a sense
of joy.
Eventually he attended church regu-
larly, accepted Jesus as the Messiah,
and then he left his well paying career
as a CPA to become a full time evange-
list with Jews for Jesus in 1997.
To the Jews for Jesus members,
the evidence of the Old and New Tes-
taments and the transformation in the
their lives provides the evidence that Je-
sus is the Jewish Messiah.
Mr. Savitt will be happy to answer
questions after the presentation.
There is no charge for admission.
