South Bay's new top cop: Sandt steps in

PBSO names new commander


Lt. Rob Sandt thinks
outside the box in
his efforts to move
ahead
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY There's a new
commander in town, if the city's
residents don't know by now.
His name is Rob Sandt, a
lieutenant with the Palm Beach
County's Sheriff's Office (PBSO).
The District 11 chief, who
came to South Bay in March, re-
places PBSO Lieutenant Michael
Morris, who's been moved to


District 13 in Belle Glade.
Morris now serves as the ex-
ecutive officer under PBSO Cap-
tain Andrew Bilardello (District
13-Belle Glade).
Moving forward, Sandt, a Long
Island, New York native, has as-
sembled a host of initiatives that's
geared toward fostering better re-
lations between law enforcement
and the citizens of South Bay.
On this past Friday (May 15),
the PBSO hosted a meet and
greet event at Cox Park.
As residentsgot the chance to
know Sandt a little bit, he went
on to tell them about his future
plans for the city.
SWhat may define Sandt's time
in South Bay is a community


survey, which he came up with
while serving in Boca Raton (Dis-
trict 7).
When Sandt, 39, developed
the survey, he implored the ideas
of various philosophies of com-
munity policing efforts out forth-
by the sheriff's office.
He later distributed the survey
throughout the city of South Bay,
separating it into four quarters.
Two of Sandt's South Bay
deputies were assigned to each
quarter and passed out the ques-
tionnaire, which featured six
questions on it.
Some of those questions in-
clude concerns about open-aired

Pahokee

Event will be held
May 23 at the Lake
Okeechobee Outpost
By Naji Tobias

PAHOKEE As the close-knit city
prepares for the upcoming sum-
mer, one thins is certainly clear.
There must be a host of positive
outlets for the youth to engage in,
local leaders have said.
For starters, the city is doing its
part by hosting a fishing tourna-
ment this weekend, to be held at
the Lake Okeechobee Outpost Ma-
rina.
According to Henry Crawford,
a Pahokee city commissioner,
this idea came up less than three
weeks ago.
That's an accomplishment in it-
self, given the relatively short turn-
around time in efforts to host an
inaugural event of its magnitude.
Approximately 100 children in
the area are expected to partici-
pate, but it's not the numbers that
leaders are looking for in terms of
having a successful event.
It's the impact of changing lives
that counts the most, given the
area's increase in criminal activ-
ity among the youth over the past
year.

Spring football game at Glades Day School


Glades Day's Home game
vs. American Heritage-Plan-
tation to be played tonight
at 7 p.m.

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Since Glades Day's first
spring football practice (May 4), two char-
acteristic traits have emerged in this year's
team;
They're self-motivated and display a
healthy dose of team chemistry, as observed
by Pete Walker, the Gators head coach.
As they hold their daily football practices,
one could sense a true team bond which
may make for a special year, given the fact
that Glades Day will be a relatively young
bunch.
Take Tanner Redish, for example.
A sophomore-to-be, Redish is considered
by his teammates and coaches as a quarter-
back who is quickly learning what it takes to
become a respectable signal caller.
With a relatively good arm and an unex-
pected poise in the pocket, Walker is high on
his emerging leader, though there won't be
much expected from him this year.
Glades Day's offense is slated to become


a mostly-running one, with freshman-to-
be Kelvin Taylor holding down the tailback
spot.
Finishing with 1,692 rushing yards and 27
touchdowns as an eighth-grader last year,
Walker is simply expecting him to just be-
come 'a better Kelvin this year.'
Expect the offense to feature some play-
action as well, with Redish getting some op-
portunity to make some plays, particularly
in tonight's spring game against American
Heritage-Plantation.
The Gators have recently picked up Tony
Kibler, a senior-to-be transfer from Okeecho-
bee.
Listed at 6-6 and 310 lbs., Kibler is regard-
ed as one of the area's top college prospects,
with a slew of major-college offers already
coming his way.
Kibler, who will play both sides of the ball
as a tackle, is projected to be a reckoning
force on the line this season.
Hopefully, he'll help improve on Glades
Day's biggest weaknesses of the past two
years the run defense and the overall play
of the defensive line.
"Anytime you could get someone like
that, it does nothing but good for our team,"
Walker.
Those two areas of concern are going to
be critical in tonight's matchup.
Last spring, when these two teams met,


Glades Day came out on top by a score of
21-0.
If the Gators hope to win their second
straight home game against American Her-
itage-Plantation, both sides of the ball must
be in sync throughout the contest.
The secondary, which believe it or not,
is Glades Day's biggest strength on defense,
will feature junior-to-be Eaton Spence, con-
sidered the team's best overall defensive
back.
Spence, who was a featured cornerback
last season, will likely be moved to safety for
tonight's spring game and for the entire up-
coming year.
Joshua Thornton, who suffered a bruised
shoulder last week during a tackling drill at
practice, will start tonight at cornerback.
Considered a respectable cover back and
the team's fastest player, the junior-to-be
may very well emerge as one of the team's
top overall players, depending on how he
does in the spring game.
SClint Johnson, who's listed at 6-1 in
height, will be the team's other starting cor-
nerback.
All eyes will be on what the defense does
tonight, as it could be a good indicator of
what to expect this season from the young
group.
Davonte Allen, yet another junior-to-be,
will come in as Glades Day's top receiver.


Allen has already proven that he's capa-
ble of being a playmaker, as evidenced by
his touchdown catch in the May 15 Green
and Gold game.
Walker on the outcome of the Green and
Gold game, which is basically a scrimmage.
"It was good to see some guys stepping
up on both sides of the ball," Walker said of
his team.
"Guys will get an opportunity to show
us what they can do in the spring game to-
night."
Walker said he's not too focused on win-
ning this game, but is looking to see how
well his defenders will tackle tonight.
SAlso, the Glades Day coach wants to limit
injuries as much as possible, since many of
his starting linemen, in particular, won't be
playing tonight.
Overall, Walker likes what he sees from
his players, with just one parting comment
on the team's progress.
"They're simply going out there to try
and get better," he said.

New application process


for alligator hunting


permits starts June 1


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) will use new
permit-application procedures this year to
resolve past permit issuance problems for
the highly popular statewide alligator har-
vest program.
In Phase I of the new process, applica-
tions will be accepted for a random drawing
from 10 a.m. (EDT) June 1 through- 11:59
p.m. (EDT) June 15. Approximately 6,000 al-
ligator harvest permits will be available.
During the Phase I random drawing,
each person may submit only one no-cost
application, which provides the option of
prioritizing up to five hunt area and period
choices. All people seeking a harvest permit
must be at least 18 years of age by Aug. 15,
2009. A permit allows the harvest of two al-
ligators on a designated area.
Applications can be submitted at any
county tax collector's office, license agent
(retail outlet that sells hunting and fish-
ing licenses), and at MyFWC.com/License.
Drawing results will be posted at MyFWC.
com/Hunting no earlier than June 17. Fee
payments must be made at the locations ref-
erenced above by June 29.
Any permits remaining after this period
will be offered during Phase II on a first-
come, first served basis from 10 a.m. (EDT)
July 1 through 11:59 p.m. (EDT) July 6. Peo-
ple who purchased a permit during Phase
I may not apply. Applicants in Phase II are
limited to one permit.
If permits are available after Phase II, they
will be offered during Phase III on a first-
come, first served basis froml0 a.m. (EDT)
July 7, until all permits are sold. People who
purchased a permit in Phase I or II may.ap-
ply for additional permits during Phase Ill.
Successful applicants must submit pay-
ment for an alligator trapping license and
two alligator harvest tags, or provide proof
of a valid alligator trapping license (must
be valid through Nov. 1, 2009) and pay the
fee for two harvest tags. No other hunting
licenses are required.


The cost for an alligator trapping li-
cense and alligator harvest tags is $271.50
for Florida residents, and nonresidents pay
$1,021.50. The cost for each additional alli-
gator hunting permit is $61.50, regardless of
residency. All fees are nonrefundable.
An alligator trapping agent license is
also available for $51.50, which allows the
license holder to assist permitted trappers
take alligators.
The alligator hunting season will run 11
consecutive weeks from Aug. 15 through
Nov. 1.
To educate participants on the how-to's
and rules and regulations of the hunts, the
FWC offers a no-cost, three-hour training
and orientation program, which is held at
various locations throughout the state. Per-
mit recipients are not required to attend, but
first-time participants are strongly encour-
aged to go. Courses will be offered in July
and August, and permit holders will receive,
by mail, permit packages listing dates and
locations.

ing alligator hunts, visit: MyFWC.com/Wild-

Local nurses joined in celebrating
help the local hospital foundation.


Rather than enjoy
appreciation during Nurses
Week, local nurses join
for a worthy cause

By Glenda Wilson
National Nurses Week is celebrated an-
nually from May 6 (also known as National
Nurses Day) through May 12..
During this week-long event, nurses are
recognized from coast to coast for the work
they perform and the role they play in the
delivery of healthcare.
Each year during National Nurses Week,
Hendry Regional Medical Center honors its
nurses in a variety of ways from providing a
special evening meal to giving small gifts of
appreciation.
However, this year, the hospital nurses
wanted to change the routine; instead of re-
ceiving, they wanted to give.
They put a plan into place and decided
that they would hold a bake sale to benefit
the hospital foundation.
They even went so far as to secure an
anonymous donor to match the funds
raised.

Furthermore, they chose to forfeit the gift
that they would normally receive and give
that money to the hospital foundation as
well.
On Thursday, May 7, this wonderful
group of compassionate, caring, healthcare
proViders hosted a morning bake sale that
raised $1,620 in only four hours for the Hen-
dry Regional Medical Center Foundation!
They started out selling cookies, brown-
ies, slices of cake, pies, and other desserts
that they had baked.
Next, they auctioned off five more fantas-
tic sweets.
Hospital employees enjoyed the scrump-
tious goodies, as they too supported the
HRMC Foundation through their contribu-
tions.
There are many qualities that define a
nurse one is dedication and commitment
to the profession, with a nurturing, caring
and giving heart.
Hendry Regional Medical Center is proud
to say that its nurses not only possess this
wonderful quality, but also many more that
are required of them in their career field.
Although National Nurses Week is over,
don't pass up an opportunity to say thanks
to the nurses in our community.

Walk in the Past: The War of Spanish Succession


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum


Tall pine trees carpeted
the valley in a sea of green
that wavered, then disap-
peared before the broad,
earthen-fields that stretched
from the forest to the river's
edge.
Stalks of corn, tipped with
silky, golden tassels, blanket-
ed the cleared land in quilted
patchworks of emerald green
and red earth tones.
Rough, hewn cabins
nestled among the fields sent
white smoke spouting from
clay chimneys that drifted
slowly across the ripened
fields and woodlands.
Settlers dressed in coarse,
homespun cloths, moved
about their cabins, perform- "A Walk in t
ing tasks as fissures of light and galleries
crinkled across the early
morning sky.
Lean warriors, crouching
at the forest edge, gazed across the green
fields anxiously awaiting the signal to at-
tack.
Moments later, a tall, solemn warrior
stepped forward and waved his musket to-
ward the cabins.
Screaming hordes emerged ecstatically
from the forest,.banishing muskets.
In fleeting moments, murderous havoc
rained upon unsuspecting settlers.
The harshness and uncertainty of frontier
life was vivid after the attack.
Corpses of fleeing settlers lay strewn
across the fields and river banks, as smoke
from the fiercely burning cabins mush-
roomed into the sky.
This fictitious tale relates the uncertain-
ties of pioneer life on the frontier during the
1700s in America.
The brutality and deaths of innocent
white and Indian people, alike, assert the
tragedy that has befallen humans since our
beginning.
Greed, wealth, and power have been
and will continue to be mankind's Achilles'
heel.
It is time to "Take a Walk in The Past" and
read about the events that brought other Na-
tive Americans to La Florida.
The wars that ravaged Europe in the
1700s literally bled over to the Americas.
Many Indian Nations trading with rival
European countries were drawn into alli-
ances that entangled them in the European
struggles for dominance in North America.
These power struggles would destroy
many Indian Nations and force some to
relocate or assimilate with other Indian Na-
tions.
In the late 1600s, an undeclared war was
waged between England and Spain on La
Florida and Carolina soils.
This small war consisted of raids and pu-
nitive actions by both sides that were incon-
clusive.
However, "The War of Spanish Succes-
sion" in 1701, changed British policy and

strategy in La Florida.
England chose a campaign to eradicate
the Spanish missions that buttressed North
Florida's borders.
England's strategy would require colonial
troops and native warriors.
The Yamasee and some Creeks were al-
lied with the British.
They had conducted raids with the Brit-
ish in La Florida during the late 1600s, and
readily joined ranks with the British in 1701,
raiding and plundering the Spanish missions
in North Florida.
The Spanish missions were destroyed by
1708.
The destruction of the missions allowed
the invading British and Indian raiders to at-
tack deeper into Florida, until the Yamasee
Indians raiders eventually reached the keys.
The Yamasee Indians are credited as the
main Indian force responsible for Indian
raids into La Florida during "The War of
Spanish Succession."
The war ended in 1713, but the Yamasees
continued to raid until 1715.
In 1715, a war broke out in South Caro-
lina called the Yamasee War.
The cause of the war was complex and
differed among the many. Indian Nations
that participated.
Commitment differed as well, with some
Indian Nations fighting to the bitter end, oth-
ers fighting only briefly, some divided, some
changing sides.
The war started with a coalition of vari-
ous Indian nations (Yamasee, Cherokee,
Creek, Chickasaw, Catawba, and others)
that were unhappy with Indian land losses
to encroaching settlers, trade agreements
and slavery issues.
It became one of the most serious Indian
threats to European dominance in the his-
tory of America.
The war was bloodier than the King Phil-
ip's War in New England and is estimated
to have killed 7% of the white population in
South Carolina.
The people of South Carolina were fac-


ing annihilation, but were saved when the
Cherokee Indian Nation sided with them in
1716.
It is ironic that the Cherokee Nation
saved the South Carolina citizens from an-
nihilation.
Little did they know that a man of des-
tiny would be birthed in South Carolina; his
name was Andrew Jackson.
In the War of 1812, Andrew Jackson be-
came a national hero in the Battle of New
Orleans and later the seventh president of
the United States of America.
During his administration, he passed the
Indian Removal Act, which called for the
removal of all Indians living east of the Mis-
sissippi to Indian territories west of the Mis-
sissippi.
The Cherokees were forced to relocate to
their new homeland in an infamous journey
that would become known as "The Trail of
Tears."
The Yamasee War ended in 1717, with a
major defeat for the Yamasees. Many of the
Yamasees fled to La Florida and later allied


themselves with the Span-
iards.
The Ochese Creek, who
were thought to be the insti-
gators of the war, moved out
of South Carolina and relo-
cated along Chattahoochee
River.
Groups- of Yamasee,
Apalachee and others fol-
lowed the Ochese Creek.
Some historians think
these Indians integrated into
the Ochese Creek culture.
It is thought that term
"Ochese Creek," was a gen-
eral term, which settlers
used to identify Creeks liv-
ing on the Ochese Creek in
Georiga.
.The term Ochese Creek
would later be defined as
the "Lower Creek" by Euro-
pean settlers.
It was a geographical
term that applied to the
Creeks living on the middle
or lower Chattahoochee
River, on the Alabama-Geor-


gia border.
Creeks living on the Coosa and Tallapoo-
sa above the forks of the Alabama River
were called "Upper Creeks".
There will be more Tale Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
the Creeks and other Indian Nations settle
in Florida.
I hope you have enjoyed this story. Please
contact the Clewiston Museum if you have
questions, artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale of
a Tale" that you would like to share.
The Museum's hours are Monday
through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The museum provides an interesting,
fossil display of prehistoric animals that
once roamed the Glades thousands of years
ago and artifacts that reflect the heritage of
Clewiston.
Our theater has a 65-seat capacity and
presents movies on the History of Clewis-
ton, Sugar Cane Harvesting, and The Or-
ange Industry.
Come by and enjoy a 45- minute group
tour for $2 per person.

P VcLrE COUNI


Beyond the Smokescreen...
By Jeni Dyess
The Tobacco industry has to spend billions of dollars each year to hook new users and keep
others from quitting. Why? They lose 1,200 customers per day. Not because people are quitting
at high rates, no. It's because people are dying from diseases associated with tobacco use. Did
you know tobacco use causes over 400,000 deaths in the United States each year? That's more
than AIDs, alcohol, murder, car crashes, suicides, and illegal drugs combined!
The Tobacco industry has a long and shameless history of promoting their products. Tobacco
companies in the U.S. spend as much as 75% of their marketing dollars in tobacco retail stores,
including the convenience stores and gas stations in your town. Tobacco companies lead the way
in paying store owners to display their products in the most visible locations throughout the store.
The typical retail store has more than 12 tobacco promotional items on display, and 92% of
retails stores have at least one tobacco branded marketing item, such as an ad or display. Studies
show point of purchase advertising, or advertising located where the customer buys the products,
boosts sales anywhere from 12-28%.
You might be thinking...how does this affect me and my community?
Consider this. Kids are three times more sensitive than adults to advertising, and almost twice
as likely to remember the ads they see. Retail cigarette and snuff advertising increases the likeli-
hood that youth will not only try tobacco, but will be more inclined to move from experimenta-
tion to regular use. Surveys have shown us that youth are more influenced by tobacco advertising
than by peer pressures. Approximately 750,000 kids will become new regular, daily smokers this
year. Almost a third of those kids will die from tobacco use.
Kids in the U.S. smoke almost a billion packs of cigarettes per year. This represents a pretty
good return on investment for the tobacco companies. While the tobacco industry reaps massive
profits, our kids get hooked on nicotine, increasing their chances of becoming lifelong customers.
They'll spend thousands of dollars on a product which may eventually kill them.
Florida law prohibits customers from having direct access to tobacco products. The next time
you're in a convenience store, gas station, or any location where tobacco products are sold, take
a look around. Ask store owners or managers to keep all cigarettes and smokeless tobacco prod-
ucts behind the counter. Are there any ads displayed at or below three feet high? This is a young
child's eye level. Ask store owners or managers to reduce the type of advertising that children
can see. Support those stores who do a good job of limiting tobacco and other harmful market-
ing. For help in quitting all tobacco products contact the Hendry County Health Department at
(863) 674-404, Glades County Health Department at (863) 946-0707, or the Florida Quit
Line at 1-877-822-6669. Freedom is within reachI

2008 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
South Shore Water Association/City of Clewiston

SEste informed contiene iniformacion muy important sobre agua de deber. Traduzcalo o able con alguien que lo entienda bien.
We are very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Quality Water Rep rt We want to keep you informed about the quality water and services we deliv-
er to you every day. This report is provided pursuant to Federal and State drin ng water requirements. We are pleased to report that our drinking water exceeds
all federal and state requirements.
Your water source is City of Clewiston Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant, which officially went on-line January 08, 2008. The plant draws
water from the Floridan Aquifer. Water from this aquifer is of high quality and less vulnerable to pollutants which could be caused by runoffor surface
water. This brackish water is drawn from (4) wells which are 1200 feet deep. The water is pumped to the treatment plant, then passed through micron
filters, then to the Reverse Osmosis membrane process which removes any contaminants, minerals and salts in the water to produce high quality drink-
ing water which exceeds water quality standards. After the RO process, the water is disinfected and fluoride is added to the drinking water to enhance
dental health for the community, then pumped to a 1.5 million gallon storage tank and finally distributed to the customers. If you have any questions
about this report or concerningyour water utility, or want to obtain a copy of this report, please contact the office at (863) 983-9830.
South Shore Water Association routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. This table shows
the results of our monitoring for the period ofJanuary 1st to December 31st, 2008, except where otherwise indicated. For contaminants not required
to be tested for in 2008, test results are for the most recent testing done in accordance with the regulations.
The FDEP conducted a statewide assessment of public drinking water systems in 2004. No assessment of this system has been made to date
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water trav-
els over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick
up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
Microbial contaminants, such as vies and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff industrial or domestic
wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff; and residential uses. Organic chemical
contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can,
also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by pub-
lic water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the
same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of con-
taminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be
obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as per-
sons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplant, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disor-
ders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care
providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are
available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

In this table you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
* Action Level (AL) Theoncentration of a contaminant, which, ifexceeded,triggers treatment or other requirements, which a water system must follow
* Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs
as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
* Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG)- the level ofa contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health.
MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
* Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that
addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
* Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk
to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial. contaminants.
* "ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
* Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
*Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (Og/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
* Picocuries per liter (pCi/L) -measure of radioactivity in water

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is pri-
marily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. South Shore is responsible for providing high quality drink-
ing water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can min-
imize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned
about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to
minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http,//www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

Century

er
IS.


Somebody mentioned "biotheology"
awhile back. I never heard of it. A little dig-
ging and I learned that some researchers
believe that we are "pre-wired" to believe in
God as a condition of being human.
It is an interesting idea; having some-
where within our very physical being a part
of us that leads to God. Awhile back, another
scientist-physician spoke of our "collective
unconscious" or the beliefs we share with
all of humanity. His ideas were compatible
with tendencies to believe in God. People
have gathered and shared their beliefs.
Forming "churches" of one sort or another.
They have gone on for as long as people
have been around.
Because we are blessed with "memory,
reason and skill" as one worship service puts
it. We don't have to "re-invent the wheel"
with each generation. We can build on the
religious foundations of our spiritual forefa-
thers and come to grow in our understand-
ing of the place of "church" in life. During
our Lord's life here on earth, He asked His
disciples "Who do people say that the Son
of Man is? (Matthew 16:13)."
They give different answers, then Jesus
asks them "Who do you say that I am?" It is
Peter who answers "You are the Christ, the
son of the living God!" In return, Jesus tells
Peter that he is blessed and "Upon this rock
I will build my Church and the gates of Hell
will not overcome it (v.s8)."
Why not? Because it will be a very part of
human nature and people will build church-
es where none exist or resurrect them when
they lay dormant, or reform them when
they have strayed from their message and
purpose. It was interesting to watch the col-
lapse of the Soviet empire, an officially non-
believing society for seventy years (more
than two generations).
The Russian Church reappeared and
picked up once more. Other societies that
have sought to stamp out religion or subvert
it to their own ends have had to acknowl-
edge the ancient faith of their people in one
way or another.
I take comfort in what Jesus told Peter:
The Church is here to stay. It has been in
error, it has had corrupt representatives it
has changed form over the centuries; but
it keeps on as the Lord meant it to do. The
Dark Ages were periods of lawlessness and
violence; monasteries kept alive faith and
knowledge during these times.
Now they are few and the local Church
has replaced them as centers of worship;
keeping faith alive. The means of worship
and expressions of faith have drastically
changed, but the Church continues on. That
is a great though.
We're part of something God destined to
continue on and on and on. His Church is
eternal. Even Hell shall not prevail against it.

The Gospel
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church


After Jesus' Resurrection and just before
He ascended into Heaven He gave this com-
mission: "Go into all the world and preach
the Gospel to every creature, he that be-
lieveth and is baptized shall be saved, he that
believeth not shall be damned. In Matthew
28:18-20 the commission reads "Go ye there-
fore and teach all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
teaching them to observe all things whatso-
ever I have commanded and lo I am with
you always, even unto the end of the world."
This commission says we are to preach and
teach Everyone -Everywhere!
But what is the Gospel? Jesus said to
preach it. What do you think the Gospel is
that Jesus said to preach?
The Apostle Paul defines the Gospel in
this way in I Corinthians 15:1-4. It is the facts
that Jesus died for our sin, was buried, and
arose again the third day. So there are three
facts that comprise the Gospel. Death, Buri-
al and Resurrection.
But the Gospel not only has Facts to be
believed. The Gospel has Commands to be
obeyed, Promises to be received and Warn-
ings to be heeded.
The Commands of the Gospel are that:
1.We believe the Facts. 2. Repent of Sin 3.
Confess Faith in Christ, and 4. Be Baptized
(Immersed) for the remission of sins to re-
ceive the Holy Spirit. (Mark 16:15-16; Acts
2:38; Acts 8:37, Romans 6:3-5).
The Promises of the Gospel are that: 1.
Our Sins are forgiven. 2. We receive the Holy
Spirit. 3. The Lord adds us to His Church. 4.
We reenact the Gospel. 5. We put on Christ.
6. We are saved from our sin. (Acts 2:38;
47; Romans 6:3-5; Galatians 3:26-27, I Peter
3:21).
The Warnings are if we do not obey the
Gospel. 1. Damnation. 2. Everlasting de-
struction from the presence of the Lord and
the glory of His power. (Mark 16:16; 2 Thes-
salonians 1:8-9). Romans 6:16-18 teaches
that we are servants of the one we Obey. It
also says we must "Obey from the heart that
form of doctrine delivered you, being then
made free from sin you become the servant
of righteousness." The doctrine is "The Gos-
pel" (I Cor. 15:1-4). The form of the Gospel
we must obey is "Baptism" (Romans 6:3-5).
If you haven't "Obeyed The Gospel" we
urge you to do so without delay.

Memory is a tricky thing
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Memory is a tricky thing.
Particularly as we get older.
You may know the story about three
women who were talking.
The first said, "Sometimes I go to the re-
frigerator and forget what I need by the time
I get there."
The second shared, "When I go upstairs,
I can't remember whether I'm going up for
something or I'm on my way back down."
The third woman said, "I'm lucky, I don't
have that problem." (knocks on wood) "Oh,
there's someone at the door."
Memory is a tricky thing.
There are some things, however, that we
should never forget.

One of these is the sacrifices that others
have made in our behalf.
Just before take-off, a line of ten soldiers
came down the aisle and filled all the vacant
seats. A man asked, "Where are you head-
ed?"
"Petawawa. We'll be there for two weeks
for special training, and then we're being de-
ployed to Afghanistan."
After flying for about an hour, an an-
nouncement was made that sack lunches
were available for five dollars. The man
overheard one soldier ask his buddy if he
planned to buy lunch.
"No, that seems like a lot of money for just
a sack lunch." Probably wouldn't be worth
five bucks..I'll wait till we get to base."
His friend agreed.
The man looked around at the other sol-


diers. None were buying lunch. He walked
to the back of the plane and handed the
flight attendant a fifty-dollar bill.
"Take a lunch to all those soldiers."
She grabbed his arms and squeezed
tightly. Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked
him.
"My son was a soldier in Iraq; it's almost
like you are doing it for him."
Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the
aisle to where the soldiers were seated.
Others caught on to what was happen-
ing, and purchased more sack lunches for
the soldiers to eat on the way to their base.
Ten young men left that flight feeling the
love and respect of their fellow travelers.
Watching, the man thought, "These sol-
diers are giving their all for our country. We
could only give them a couple of meals. It
seems so little..."
Memory is a tricky thing.
There are some things, however, that we
should never forget.
Memorial Day is for remembering.

Fishing
Continued From Page 1

The senior citizens of Pahokee are slated
to be on hand and give the youth an assist in
the fishing tournament, which hadn't been
discussed in too much detail, as of press
time.
But what's known for certain right now
is that will be at least four teams, with the
event to be free of charge for those who
signed up for it.
In addition, all of the city commissioners
and officials are '100 percent behind this,'
according to Crawford.
"By teaching them how to fish, it can
help us keep them off the streets," Crawford
said.
"Once he catches that first fish, then he's
hooked."
For one thing, the uptick in crimes have
been attributed to at least two factors: the
economy, which is currently in a deep reces-
sion and the shortage of available activities
for citizens in Pahokee, locals have com-
plained for some time now.
"We are aware of the limitations we have
in our city," Crawford said.,
So one day, Crawford and Jim Sheehan,
a managing partner with the Lake Okeecho-
bee Outpost Marina, met with each. other
and gathered up 10 more locals to make the
most of what's arguably the city's top attrac-
tion.
When the 12-person committee, who all
had a hand in the tournament's formation,
put their heads together, several ideas for the


summer surfaced in the discussion.
Prospective events to be held in the sum-
mer include a series of airboat rides, a sail-
boat regatta and a host of picnic and parties
for the area's youth and its citizens to take
part in.
Plans are in place to hold these events
at least twice a month throughout the sum-
mer.
A sunset watch barbecue is also in the
works, which has the potential to end up
being one of the most successful events in
Pahokee for the summer.
Wright, who claims that Pahokee has
'one of the most beautiful sunsets in the
world', thinks that it will be a shining mo-
ment in this city's history.
"We're going to have to thoroughly em-
brace the marina campground," said Larry
Wright, who helped spearhead the fishing
tournament.
"We need to use this to our advantage in
a positive way."
Notes: The 12-person committee consists
of Crawford, Sheehan, Wright, J.P. Sasser,
Emilio Perez, Andre Walker, Alvis Davis, Ro-
swell Harrington, Royal York, Richard King,
Jeffrey Harrington and Kenneth Holley.
* The fishing tournament, which will be
held this Saturday (May 23), is scheduled to
begin at approximately 8 a.m. and conclude
at 1 p.m.
For more information, contact Larry
Wright at 985-3389.

drug sales, quality of life issues and traffic-
related offenses.
The survey is scored from one to five,
with one as the worst and five as the best.
With about 60 percent of city's residents
submitting their questionnaires, Sandt deter-
mined that the residents do not see South
Bay as a strong community.
"You have to raise the bar," Sandt said.
"The community cannot tolerate every-
thing that's going on here."
Noting that there are only a few business-
es here in South Bay, Sandt took some time
to meet with citizens in an attempt to get to
the root of the city's problems.
What Sandt discovered was that the is-
sues here in South Bay are complex and
hard to find.
According to him, some of the area's citi-
zens have criminal records and have no ride
to work.
After spending some time with a group
of men in the area, Sandt came away per-
plexed by what he observed
"There are a lot of young men here that
don't have any ambition or goals in life,"
Sandt said. "It's absolutely horrible."
Sandt hopes the community's leaders
will step up and identify some leaders who
could form a mentorship in efforts to reach
out to the area's young men.
"You need to pull the voice out of the


community," Sandt said, "Leaders have to
come together and do something with these
young men."
Another interesting issue that Sandt dis-
covered was the criminal activity here in this
city.
There have been no reported robberies
in South Bay within the past year.
However, there have been three shoot-
ings in the area within the aforementioned
time span.
And just last year, there were 143 domes-
tic violence calls in South Bay, with 43 of
them resulting in arrests.
That concerns Sandt.
It's part of why he felt a survey was need-
ed, which has garnered much praise from
Tony Araujo, a major with the sheriff's of-
fice.
Sandt said his questionnaire survey,
which started in Boca Raton and South Bay,
will feature spin-offs of it in the neighboring
municipalities of Belle Glade and Pahokee in
the near future.
Sandt plans to have his deputies re-sur-
vey the citizens in six months to see whether
or not progress has been made in the afore-
mentioned areas of concern.
"We want to focus on solving prob-
lems," Sandt said. "If we can somehow get
some community-based programs in place,
that will be a huge win here in South Bay,"
Sandt.

A rainy night
The seemingly torrential rains wreaked havoc graduation night in Pahokee,
but only a short while. The gymnasium where the ceremony was held was
flooded, and maintenance staff worked tirelessly so that the ceremony could
continue.
