Alcohol, excessive

factors in two deaths

Driving his 2008 Acura TL to-

control of his vehicle and crashed
into a canal. -
Unfortunately, his two passen-

21 and Jorge Morales, 27, suffered
fatal injuries in the accident.
Giniebra was the only one who
survived the accident, though he
was, at one time, listed in critical
condition.
Now, he's facing two traffic fel-
ony counts of vehicular homicide
and driving under the influence
(DUI) manslaughter.
In addition, detectives believe
that alcohol played a role in the
two fatalities.

Weekend boating


tragedies a harsh


reminder about safety


The deaths of six people in three separate
boating-related accidents in Florida during
the Labor Day weekend are a stark reminder
that the need to practice safe boating is as
critical as ever.
Three people died Friday night when two
vessels collided near Brooks Bridge at Fort
Walton Beach.
Two of the victims were from Alabama,
the other from Texas.
On Saturday, three others died, including
a father and son from Tequesta who were
bass fishing in Lake Okeechobee.
Later in the day, an Alabama man died
after the family fishing boat capsized in the
Gulf of Mexico off Indian Pass in Gulf Coun-
"It's quite likely that not one of those who
died this past weekend ever thought some-
thing like that would happen to them," said
Capt. Richard Moore of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC)
Division of Law Enforcement.
"Too many people who enjoy boating in
Florida think the same thing."
Although the causes vary, many of Flor-
ida's boating accidents involve a collision
with another vessel or object, such as a
bridge piling, navigation buoy or even the
shoreline.
The FWC's boating safety staff say boat
operators must maintain 360-degree situ-
ational awareness to avoid dangerous and
potentially deadly situations.
Passengers can help by alerting the op-
erator to anything that might be in the path
of their boat;
If there is one thing boaters can do to
make themselves more safe, it's wearing a
life jacket.
An estimated 60 percent of all people
who die in boating accidents would have
survived if they wore a life jacket.
No one on any of the boats involved in
the three incidents over the weekend wore
a life jacket.
A variety of life jackets are available to
boaters, including newer styles of inflatable
models that are much smaller, lighter and
more comfortable to wear than traditional
vest life jackets.
One new style, the belt pack, goes around
the waist.
A suspender style also is available.
Some of these models activate automati-
cally if the wearer falls into the water. Under
the laws of most states, the inflatable mod-


els must be worn to count as a life jacket.
In other words, just having them in the
boat is not enough.
"There isn't a better place to enjoy boat-
ing than here in Florida, and we get to enjoy
the water year round," Moore said.
"But, something that much fun can
quickly turn to tragedy if we let our guard
down."
During Florida's Labor Day holiday week-
end in 2008, no lives were lost in boating ac-
cidents.
So far in 2009, Florida has lost 52 people
in boating accidents, and probably all of
those could have been prevented, Moore
said.

King's Academy Lions out roar Clewiston Tigers


By Jeff Barwick
Again, Clewiston could not advance the
ball on the ground and. junior quarterback
Andres Rios was forced into constant pass-
ing situations.
With the wet grounds and a blitzing Li-
ons defense, the passing results were no bet-
ter than the rushing effort. The Lions took a
punt near midfield and needed only 5 plays
to score with Miller hitting Williams on a 35
yard pass to score with 2:12 remaining in the
half.
Clewiston took the following kickoff and
went back to the passing game and Rios got
intercepted by cornerback Gage Batten at
the Lions 41 yard line. King's drove to the
Tiger 12 in 3 quick plays but had to go to
Ortiz on a 30 yard field goal try as time was
running out. The attempt barely missed and
Clewiston trailed by 16 points at the inter-
mission.
The third quarter saw a better defensive
performance by Clewiston. as they held
the Lions scoreless. On offense, the Tigers
finally got a drive going and drove to the
King's Academy 11 before Rios was hit on
a passing attempt and dropped the ball. The
Lions quickly pounced on the loose pigskin
as the third period was drawing to a close.
Two plays later, the Tigers returned the favor
when defensive end Julio Ramos recovered
a Miller fumble on the Lions 19.
Despite a King's Academy off side penalty
to help, the Tigers could not move the ball
past the Lions 18 and turned the ball over on

downs. and killed the Tigers only real scor-
ing opportunities of the evening.
In the final period, the Lions returned to
their ball and clock controlling offense and
engineered a 13-play, 82 yard drive with
Clewiston hosted Class 1A King's Academy
on Friday night and, at least for the Tigers,
all the fireworks happened before the game
began. The Class 1A Lions improved their
season record to 2-0 as they whipped the
Tigers by a 22-0 score in a game that had
a 90-minute start delay due to lightning that
followed a torrential rainstorm.
The Lions won the toss and took the
opening kickoff and proceeded with a 15-
play, 77 yard scoring drive that consumed
over 8 minutes from the first period. They
scored when quarterback Mike Miller hand-
ed the ball off to flanker Brian Grove on
an apparent reverse. But Grove pulled up,
turned and threw a strike to Miller who had
streaked into the corner of the end zone.
On the Tigers first snap, freshman tailback
Virthavious Robinson went off left tackle for
a quick 20 yard gain but that would be the
Tigers last large gain until their final drive of
the contest. The Lions quickly shut down the
opening Tiger drive and forced a punt. The
Clewiston defense stripped the ball from Li-
ons runner lan Williams and Tyree Wilson
recovered the ball at the Tiger 25, stifling a
Lions scoring drive.
But the Tigers went 3 and out without a
positive yardage play in the series and King's
Academy returned the punt to the Tiger 33.


After several close calls on giving up a score,
the Tiger defense forced the Lions into field
goal formation and kicker Andrew Ortiz
nailed a 36-yarder to advance the Lions lead
.to 9-0.
Fullback Ryan Dowling scoring from 2
yard out with 1:12 remaining in the game.
Clewiston, with their record dropping
to 0-2, gave the hometown crowd little to
cheer about, other than their third period
drive, as they got beat both offensively and
defensively.
The offensive and defensive lines were
not effective and the Tigers were trying to
tackle with.too many hands and not enough
shoulders. The results were not pretty as the
Lions running backs slipped through those
hands and just kept racking up more yards.
Tiger freshman tailback Virthavious Rob-
inson rushed for 72 yards on 10 attempts.
Andres Rios completed 2 of 8 passing
attempts with one interception as the Li-
ons were constantly in his face most of the
game.
Senior cornerback Damion Smith led
the defense with 7 solo tackles and he also
turned in 73 yards on two punt returns. From
his linebacker position, Robinson chipped in
with 6 tackles, 2 assists and a quarterback
sack for a loss of 9 yards.
As the Tiger return specialist, Smith had
48 and 25-yard kick returns and a 21-yard
punt return. On the 48-yard effort, he had
only one Lion to beat for the score but got
caught from behind as he slowed to maneu-


ver around the defender.
Things get no easier for the Tigers this
week as they must head to Belle Glade to
take on the rival Glades Day Gators who are
undefeated and have been impressive, led
by freshman running back Kelvin Taylor.
The Tigers are still without the services
of starting center and linebacker Dillon Irey
who will likely miss at least this coming
game due to a severe leg injury and shoul-
der surgery. Defensive lineman Antonio Wil-
liams will hopefully be released from medi-
cal hold due to a knee injury and return for
this game.

Moore Haven launches Po


By Naji Tobias
Glades County Democrat


MOORE HAVEN - For the first time in 33
years, Glades County has a youth football
team.
Johnnie Brown, head coach of the Mighty
Terriers 75 lb. class, was just 8-years-old the
last time Moore Haven fielded a team like
this. If one would just come out to any of
Moore Haven's Pop Warner practices, you
would see all the excitement and buzz from
the young players, coaches, parents and fans
alike. It's certainly made Brown very happy,
to say the least.
"It's been a very long time since these
kids have been excited about football,"
Brown said. "When you think about it, ev-
ery team around us, like Pahokee, Clewis-
ton and Belle Glade, has a feeder program.
That's why they're so successful at what
they do."
For one thing, Brown has put the Moore
Haven Mighty Terriers football program in
perspective. Simply put, his vision is to give
Moore Haven's young boys an opportunity
that he and his coaching staff didn't have.
And that's having a stable youth football
program.
"Putting these young kids together has al-
lowed us to overcome a lot of obstacles this
city has had to face over the years," Brown
said. "We've been looking forward to this
for a long time and now it has come."
The Mighty Terriers have two youth
teams. The 75 lb.-and-under class, ranging
from 6 to 9 years old, fields 23 young players,
including Garrett Palladino, a cornerback
and fullback for the younger team.
The older-group, meanwhile, features 22
players who are listed at 125 lbs. and under.
Those young boys range from 9- to 12-
years-old. To Brown and his coaching staff,
it's not all about wins - at least for the pro-
gram's first year of existence.
It's about fundamentals, discipline and
the desire just to play the game of football,
something almost everyone in Glades Coun-
ty believes was lacking here for quite some
time.
First game
Saturday, Sep. 12 will be a day that no
one affiliated with the Mighty Terriers will
ever forget. At about 7 a.m., program sup-
porters, including cheerleaders, loaded up
two school buses en route to Fort Pierce for
their first Pop Warner game in many years.
About 200 people from Moore Haven
made the 90-minute trek northeast to Lawn-
wood Stadium, where the Mighty Terriers
would compete against the Ft. Pierce Buc-
caneers.
One of the biggest fans of this budding
program may be, perhaps, Stuart Whiddon,
the Glades County Sheriff.
His law enforcement office reportedly
paid for the expenses to travel to Ft. Pierce
over the weekend.
"The sheriff is definitely a kid's advocate,"
Brown said of Whiddon. "What the Glades
County Sheriff's Office has done for us is
monumental."
For most people, a bus ride to an away
game is just that. But for Moore Haven, this
was every different

of these kids." Staff Writer Naji Tobias can be reached at nto-
Sbias@newszap.com.


"It felt like we were going to the state
championship game for the first time,"
Brown said of Moore Haven, who's high
school football team has never reached a
state title game in its history.
To the surprise of Ft. Pierce, perhaps,
Moore Haven's 75 lb. group posted a 21-0
shutout win last Saturday.
At 1-0, it feels like Moore Haven has just
won a state title. In actuality, it's a double
win in the fact a football team has been
formed and that Moore Haven now has a
promising future as far as athletics is con-
cerned.
John Cox scored two rushing touch-
downs for the Mighty Terriers, while Jacob
Smith added another one to seal the victory.
Led by Garrett [Palladino], the Mighty Terri-
ers defense did not give up a first down.
In addition, Garrett snagged an intercep-
tion in the landmark game - the first in pro-
gram history.
"Our boys played some real ball out
there," said Julie Palladino, Garrett's moth-
er. "I was too busy jumping up and down
as we made history in this game. It was an
excitement we've never had in Moore Ha-
ven. Words can't describe how I'm feeling
right now."
Though the 125 lb. group lost 41-0 to Ft.
Pierce in the later game, it did not, in any
way, put a dent in this experience.
With Moore Haven in the Fed Ex Orange
Bowl league, the Mighty Terriers will get an
opportunity to play some of the best Pop
Warner teams in the state.
That includes the Pahokee Baby Blue
Devils and the Glades Glen Browns, to name
just two. And Moore Haven may even face
off against Pahokee this weekend, pending
a schedule confirmation by the coaching
staff.
It suits Brown just fine, with a wide grin
on display as he talks about the Mighty Terri-

Glades Day triumphs in homecoming win


Pahokee, Glades Central
and Moore Haven score
blowout victories

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE - In what was set up to be
a close game, the Glades Day Gators made
it anything but. For almost three quarters,
Dade Christian (Miami) hung tight in Glades
Day's homecoming game.
But after a third-quarter interception re-
turn by Glades Day junior defensive back
Eaton Spence, it was off to the races from
there.
The Glades Day faithful had much to
cheer about, especially after Tanner Redish,
a budding sophomore quarterback, lobbed
a 66-yard touchdown pass to junior wideout
Davonte Allen (3 catches, 75 yards) with
4:52 left in the third.
The score, set up by Spence's intercep-
tion, put Glades Day up 16-7 on the Crusad-
ers. From there, they never looked back, as
Glades Day scored three more touchdowns
in the second half for a 36-7 blowout win.
Crusaders head coach Mike Sonnborne,
in his fifth year at the helm, spoke on the
game-changing play.
"It hurt us and it broke our backs a little
bit," Sonnborne said.
Kelvin Taylor, Glades Day's phenom
freshman running back, registered 22 car-
ries for 240 yards and three touchdowns in
the game.
Taylor's second score, set up by Spence's
42-yard punt return late in the third quar-
ter, sealed Dade Christian's fate as he sim-
ply walked into the end zone on his 26-yard
run.
Though Taylor scored three touchdowns
- he's now at 376 yards and six touchdowns
in just two games - he was not the only run-
ning back who contributed to this win.
Glades Day's Roshard Burney, a sopho-
more, started in place of Taylor, who had
to sit out the first two offensive drives of the
game. Burney had eight carries for 74 yards,
giving Glades Day a formidable tandem at
the running back position.
In addition, Joe Jenco, Glades Day's se-
nior fullback, scored the game's final touch-
down, a 4-yard run with 1:28 left in the
fourth. Jenco finished with five carries for 28
yards. In all, Glades Day had 348 total rush-
ing yards (472 overall).
"We played a nearly flawless second
half," said Pete'Walker, Glades Day's head
coach. "There was a lot of intensity on both
sides of the ball."
Sonnborne on Glades Day's win:
"For two and a half quarters, we played
phenomenal football, but Glades Day's
depth caught up with us," Sonnborne said
of Dade Christian, a team with just six se-
niors of its 35-man roster. "They just wore
us down in the second half and that was the
difference."
Notes: Redish was 5-for-13 passing with
124 yards, a touchdown and no turnovers.
Clint Johnson, a senior defensive back,
caught the first of Glades Day's two intercep-
tions in the first half.
Dade Christian quarterback Bilal Marshal,


a sophomore, put his team up 7-3 in the first
quarter on a 48-yard touchdown strike to fel-
low sophomore Ryan Janvion.
Marshal went 12-for-26 with 164 yards, a
touchdown and two interceptions.
Dade Christian was limited to 57 rushing
yards and 221 total, an indicator of Glades
Day's overall improvement on defense from
the past two years. Glades Day had 16 first
downs in the game, while Dade Christian
had 10. Glades Day (2-0) will play at home
tomorrow night against Clewiston, who de-
feated them 30-24 last year.
Pahokee 45, Inlet Grove 0:
De'Joshua Johnson scored three touch-
downs in the first half, including a 59-yard
pass from Blue-Devils junior Emanuel Perez
in the blowout win.
Johnson, who split time with Perez at
quarterback, threw an 80-yard touchdown
pass to his favorite target, Chris Dunkley, in
the third quarter.
Johnson, now a triple threat on offense,
was 6-for-11 passing with 137 yards and a
touchdown.
He also had two rushes for 32 yards (both
touchdowns), while adding two receptions
for 69 yards (one of which was a score).
For the game, Johnson accounted for 238
of Pahokee's 571 total yards.
Dunkley led Palm Beach County with six
receptions for 144 yards and.a touchdown in
Week 2. Wardell Coleman, who may emerge
as Pahokee's starting running back for the
season, scored a 4-yard rushing touchdown
in the third - his first of the season.
Coleman, who, like fellow teammate
Fred Pickett, is a Glades Central transfer, fin-
ished with eight carries for 105 yards.
Perez was 12-for-16 passing with 200
yards and two touchdowns, one of which
was to Zachary Alien in the fourth quarter,
a 40-yard pass. Pahokee (2-0) plays its next
game against Dwyer at home tomorrow
night.
In what is deemed Florida's top game
of the week, as determined by Rivals.com,
both teams have much at stake in this highly
anticipated contest. Dwyer, which lost to
Glades Central, 21-7, in Week 1, does not
want to lose to two Muck teams for the third
year in a row.
Pahokee, nationally ranked at No. 16 in
the Rivalsl00, defeated Dwyer in the 2007
and 2008 spring football games, 14-3 and
18-7, respectively.
Glades Central 50, Palm Beach Cen-
tral 0: Jamorris 'Mario' Rowland anchored
the Raiders defense with a 25-yard inter-
ception return for a touchdown in the first
quarter. Antwon Chisolm (nine carries, 113
yards) scored two touchdowns, while L.J.
Thomas (4-for-12, 105 yards) threw for two
touchdowns in the game.
Kevin Benjamin and Greg Dent each
caught Thomas's touchdown passes, while
Neville Brown and Carlton Lewis accounted
for Glades Central's final scores of the game.
Glades Central (2-0) travels to Delray Beach
tomorrow night in a game against American.
Heritage. This contest pits Willie Bueno,
American Heritage's head coach, against his
former team, who he led to the 2000 Class
3A state title.
Moore Haven 53, Berean Christian
24: Fred Hall rushed for 250 yards and six


touchdowns in the Terriers home win.
In just two games, Hall has amassed 449
rushing yards and nine touchdowns on the
ground. Keonte White led Moore Haven's
passing attack 89 yards and a touchdown
to Terry Hallback.
Moore Haven (2-0) limited Berean Chris-
tian, who was favored to win this game, to
259 total yards. The Terriers defense was led
by Hallback, who registered a 16-yard inter-
ception return for a touchdown.
Moore Haven travels to West Palm Beach
tomorrow night in a game with Summit
Christian.

Beef '0' Brady's and HRMC work together


Tuesday fundraiser to help
hospital runs through sum-
mer

While the summer months may be tra-
ditionally a slower time for restaurants in
Clewiston, one team from a local business
offered their help to a worthy cause.
For the second consecutive year, Randy
and Kersten Maxon, owners of Beef 'O' Bra-
dy's in Clewiston, played a great part in sup-
porting the Hendry Regional Medical Center
Foundation.
The hospital foundation, a 501 (c)(3)
charitable organization, is set up to raise
funds for special projects of Hendry Region-
al Medical Center.
It focuses primarily on fundraising efforts,
and 100 percent of the money acquired
through the foundation is invested back into
the hospital.
Every Tuesday during the months of June,
July and August, the restaurant donated 15
percent of each designated food purchase
toward the foundation.
All customers had to do was simply let
their servers know they would like to help
the -foundation, and Beef 'O' Brady's ear-
marked the funds.
The Maxsons also posted brick flyers
below each television set, so that while cus-
tomers watched their favorite sports show,
they could also see the information about
the foundation's brick sale campaign. (The

organization is selling $100 bricks, with pro-
ceeds going toward the construction of the
hospital's new emergency room.)
Throughout the summer, on Tuesdays,
Glenda Wilson, the director of the HRMC
Foundation, sent weekly e-mails to hospital
employees, board members and foundation
members, encouraging them to spend their
breakfast, lunch or dinner money at Beef '0'


Brady's.
At the end of August, Kersten Maxson
presented a $300 check to Glenda Wilson.
Not only have the Maxons agreed to host
another Clewiston fundraiser next year, but
they have also generously offered the La-
Belle Beef 'O' Brady's, (which will open the
first week in November 2009) as a source of
the same type of support.

Glades Central High School Reading Activity


Glades Central Community High School
has partnered with Sun News to promote
reading comprehension. On a bi-weekly ba-
sis, we will provide a short passage for stu-
dents to read and answer questions. Please
support this initiative by having your child
participate in this academic activity.
Directions: After reading the passage
below, write the correct answers in the
space provided. Drop the answer sheet in the
Reading box located in Student Services.
Please read passage 1 and 2.
Should animals be pets or be
free?
Passage 1:
Few things in life are as rewarding and
fulfilling as owning a pet. Whether it's a dog,
cat, bird, or fish, the appeal Is the same-
years of fun and unconditional love. Indeed,
pets can actually satisfy many of the things
people crave most: companionship, com-
munication, loyalty, and plenty of amuse-
ment. Perhaps that's why pets are so popu-


lar among the elderly and people who- live
alone. As human relationships grow more
complex with each new technological gad-
get, the simple bond between a pet and its
owner offers a refreshing and comforting
reprieve.
Passage 2:
In addition to protesting reprehensible
practices like fur trapping and animal test-
ing, animal rights groups have begun to at-
tack owners of cats and dogs for keeping
animals "imprisoned" in the home. Finally,
these groups have started to make the jus-
tified comparison of owning a pet to keep-
ing a domesticated animal like a sheep or a
cow. Both pet ownership and domestication
of animals stem from the same cruel source:
human selfishness. No animal should be
kept confined solely for the benefit of hu-
man beings, whether that benefit comes in
the form of meat, leather, or the companion-
ship of a pet.

1. How might you sum up the author's
main idea in the first passage?


A. Owning a pet is cruel and unfair.
B. Pets should always be leashed.
C. Pet ownership has profound rewards.
D. Pet ownership is technologically ad-
vanced.
E. Pets need new forms of communica-
tion.

2. The word reprehensible in the second
passage most nearly means
A. Demoralizing.
B. Invigorating.
C. Restorative.
D. Disgraceful.
E. Delightful.

3. Based on information in these two pas-
sages, the authors disagree about whether
A. Animals should be kept as pets.
B. Pets are beneficial for humans.
C. Fur trapping should be illegal.
D. Kennel conditions should be re-
formed.
E. Human beings are inherently selfish.

The HIN1/Swine Flu -



Where are we now?


What do you really know about the
H 1N1-Swine Flu?
There are numerous reports on television
and a few stories in the newspapers. Some
people may just shrug their shoulders and
think that it probably won't affect them.
This is why education about the HIN1-
Swine Flu is so important.
Even though many cases have been re-
ported as mild, this flu is very contagious
and can affect people very differently.
In the U.S., from mid-April to the end of
August, there have been over 9,000 hospital-
izations and over 600 deaths associated with
the HIN1 virus.
Florida has seen over 600 hospitalizations
and over 75 deaths.
Pat Dobbins, Administrator for the Hen-
dry and Glades County Health Departments
stated the following: "Healthcare provid-
ers, schools, and businesses must educate
themselves for the unpredictable activity of
this virus and take actions now to prepare
their agencies for increased absenteeism.
This virus spreads through contact from
droplets and can live on surfaces from two
to eight hours.
It is crucial that you take the time to clean
commonly used areas such as door knobs,
phones, computers, hand rails, etc.
We understand how hard it can be for
folks to miss work or school, but please stay
home if you are sick and please do not send
sick children to school."
Approximately 97% of the flu viruses cir-
culating in the U.S. right now are the HIN1-
Swine Flu virus, therefore routine testing for
this virus is no longer recommended by the
Centers for Disease Control & Prevention
(CDC).
Since routine testing and individual case
tracking is no longer required, you will not
receive official reports from the local health
departments or schools if you hear that
someone has H1N 1-Swine Flu.
If you think you may have the HIN1-
Swine Flu, your healthcare provider will de-
termine if treatment is necessary.
It's very possible that you may not receive
a prescription unless you meet high risk cri-
teria, and you may be told to go home, get
plenty of rest, and drink plenty of fluids.
The symptoms of H1N1-Swine Flu are
very similar to the symptoms of the seasonal
flu and may include: -Fever (over 100*F) -
Cough and/or Sore Throat - Body Aches -
Headache - Chills - Fatigue. Remember, you
may experience some or all of these symp-
toms.
If your child experiences at least two of


these symptoms at school, the child will be
separated from the other students and the
parent or guardian will be requested to pick
up the child.
It is recommended that a sick child not
be placed on the school bus.
Surgical masks may be used on those
who are sick, but they are not recommend-
ed for those who are healthy.
The CDC has recently issued guidance to
schools, child care programs and businesses
on what actions they can take to reduce or
limit the spread of the flu. This information
can be found on-line at http://www.cdc.gov/
hlnlflu/.
You can also get information at www.my-
flusafety.com.
If you do not have access to the internet,
you can call the toll-free number 1-877-352-
3581.
From 8am until 8pm, you can call in to
ask questions.
After hours, you will hear recorded infor-
mation.
Information is available in English, Span-
ish and Creole.
Please continue to follow these guide-
lines and help us to educate the public:
* Avoid close contact with people who
are coughing or seem to be ill. (distance of
at least 6-feet)
* If you get sick with flu-like symptoms,
please stay home (unless your symptoms
are very severe) and limit contact with oth-
ers.
Stay home untilyou are free of fever for at
least 24 hours without using fever-reducing
medications.
* Wash your hands frequently (for at least
20-30 seconds) with soap & warm water.
Wash in between your fingers, your finger
nails, your wrists and forearms.
* Use hand sanitizers (that contain at
least 60% alcohol) if you cannot immedi-
ately wash your hands.
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose and
mouth unless you have thoroughly washed
your hands.
* Cough or sneeze into a tissue or into
the sleeve of your shirt. NEVER cough or
sneeze into your hands!
Throw tissues away and immediately
wash your hands!

Where's the Beef?
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
First airing in 1984, a Wendy's com-
mercial portrayed three elderly ladies who
were served an enormous hamburger bun
topped with a minuscule hamburger patty.
In comes 81 year old Clara Peller, who
searches in vain for customer assistance
while making the outraged demand:
"Where's the Beef?"
"Where's the beef" became an instant
catch phrase across the United States.
In today's world, many people are still
asking "Where's the beef?"
The difference is that they aren't ask-
ing about a burger, they're referring to the
church.
If God is real and Christ is who He
claimed to be, then why is there not much
difference between those who go to church
and those who don't?
Evangelist Ron Hutchcraft once com-
pared the church life of many people in
our churches today to that of a wedding
rehearsal.
They have learned to say the right things
and sing and act and dress the part, but at
the end of the day it's only been a rehearsal
without a commitment.
They talk the talk and go through the mo-
tions, but their life has not been changed by
Jesus.
In talking with other ministers, I have
come to believe that every church has
some people in it who match this descrip-
tion - people who honestly believe they are
going to heaven, not based on what Jesus
did for them, but based on how good a per-
son they can be.
While many of these are genuinely good
people, the Gospel has been around them
but never in them.
The answer to this need is to keep the
Gospel coming. We need to keep the Gos-
pel in front of others as well as ourselves.
This is the meat we need to eat. This is
where the beef is.
The Gospel is the power of God to
change a life.
The challenge we face is to serve this
Gospel meat in a way people can better
chew on it.
Often, without realizing it, we as Chris-
tians tend to get in a rut when it comes to
the way we present the Gospel message.
We tend to use words like lost, sin, saved,
and repent as if our people know what we
are talking about.
Here's the alarming truth: Lost people
don't understand what they mean and
church people have become immune to
them because we've overused them.
The message of the Gospel is not the is-
sue. It's how we present it that might be im-
proved on. There are numerous ways we
can wet people's appetites and interests to
sample it anew.
And if we serve the Gospel every day,
using everyday language that anyone can
easily understand and digest, there will be
no question where the beef is.


The importance of
community; In biblical times
and today too
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Sometimes there are unexpected out-
comes from progress, or changes.
When I ministered in the north among
Cree Indians, I heard the elders complain-
ing about the breakdown of their society.
They are a communal people and al-
ways ready for a gathering and excuse
to get together. One of the greatest times
for a community feast was after the hunt;
when everyone would gather and share the
spoils, eating and celebrating.
But no more! Why? People began to buy
freezers! The meat that would go bad can
now be stored and there is no need to eat it
before it spoils; and hence no need to share
it as well.
I entered one home in an Indian village
and the basement door was open. I no-
ticed four freezers; no doubt full of moose
meat, caribou, goose, ptarmigan, and other
things now to be shared only among the
immediate family. We have great com-
munications these days; although I've run
into great ways of avoiding communicating
with people.
How many times have I wanted to call
someone, dialed the number and then the
search began with the words "Press one
for...."? Automated systems of "FAQ's"
never seem to address the question that I
want to ask.
Unfortunately, they rarely say "And now,
if you want to speak to a real, live per-
son...." It seems fewer places or persons
are interested in people unless they are re-
warded for their time spent in some way. In
spite of all of the communications capabili-
ties, loneliness continues and the unspoken
cry is "don't get involved!"
Judas has been portrayed as history's
worst bad guy for what he did; the one
who betrayed the Lord. We don't often
look at the necessity of his role; the Lord
telling him "What you are about to do, do
quickly (John 13:27)" and being aware but
not preventing him from doing what was
to come.
When his betrayal is apparent, Judas
was "seized with remorse" (Matthew 27:3)
and wanted to undo as best he could, going
to return the thirty pieces of silver received
for his betrayal.
He goes to those who were the chief
priests and elders - the ones who are sup-
posed to listen, supposed to care, supposed
to help people - and wants to explain that
he has betrayed innocent blood. Their an-
swer?
"What's that to us" they replied "That's
your responsibility!(v.4)" Nobody really
listens, nobody shares, nobody will try to
understand, community is lost, loneliness
reaches its peak and Judas can no longer
face himself or others. Life comes to a trag-
ic end (v.5). Was he beyond redemption or
outside of God's potential to love? There


is nothing to say so. We may not have as
many tragic examples today; but the break-
ing down of societies still takes its toll.
The failure to be understood or heard,
still brings suffering. Someone remarked
that God gave us two ears and one tongue.
We're made to listen, to hear, to be a soci-
ety. He knew what He was doing!

The American Family of the
past
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
In the America of yesterday you paid
your debts as quickly as possible, and went
without things to do so. You disciplined
your children - but disciplined yourself
first. You spent less than you earned, and
demanded your government maintain the
same standard. You went to church, and
took your children to Sunday School; you
held daily prayers - and no court would
have dared to interpose any law into your
private religion. You would have been hor-
rified at (and quick to change) men in high
places who made "deals".
You expected to prosper only by doing a
better and better job. You not only obeyed
the law - but took an active part in govern-
ment to see the laws were just. You "walked
softly but carried a big stick." And that was
the character which brought this great
country victory in three wars, built it back
from a shattering depression, and fed and
saved the civilized world (materially). The
big question is: "Are there enough of those
righteous standards left to do it again?"
A little boy couldn't see into the pan,
which sat perched on the edge of the stove.
He hoped it might be icing, or pudding, or
maybe mashed potatoes. His mother had
said to stay away from it; that it was a no,
no. Still there might be something good in
it. He moved closer, ever so slowly.
As he got to the base of the stove, he be-
gan to reach up toward the pan of boiling
water. Just as his little fingers began to grab,
his mother swept him up from behind, and
gave him a firm spanking. Hopefully, the
next time she said no, he would remember,
that she meant it. She hated to spank him,
but the pain and shock he received from
that act was small sacrifice in the face of
the pain and shock he would have received
from the scalding water.
Punishment is rarely offered out of cru-
elty or meanness. It is give out of love, to
dissuade us from actions which might hurt
us worse. God punishes sinners to show
them that there is a better way. He imposes
rules on us, not to make our lives less than
they can be, but to make them the very best
that they can be. His rod is stern, but it is
applied only in love, so that we might have
life and have it more abundantly. God deals
with all his children with love and grace. If
we will know that, then we will grow in the
ways of God, and be happy.
We can hope that the many problems
our nation is having at the present will turn
us back to the America of yesteryear. If we
do not change our Ways it will lead to our
nation's destruction.

Investigation results of the
March 1 accident
Detectives from the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office (PBSO) revealed that accord-
ing to witnesses, the suspect was driving his
2008 Acura TL in a reckless manner.
Just before the fatal collision occurred - it
happened on County Road 827, about 1.25
miles west of C. R. 827A - the suspect was
reportedly driving from 80 to well over 100
miles per hour (mph) at the time.
The investigation revealed that the driver
reportedly overcorrected his vehicle while
abruptly steering the Acura to the left.
It caused the car to spin out of control
and crash into the canal, bordering the road-

Sgt. Flynn boxed in the 9/11 tournament.
He was matched against Palm Beach Coun-

Both athletes took the bout seriously and
were well conditioned. Flynn took charge

The Acura reportedly overturned as the
suspect was ejected from the vehicle.
Marrero and Morales reportedly sus-
tained traumatic injuries in the crash, which
resulted in their deaths.
The suspect, according to toxicology re-
sults from the Medical Examiner's Office,
had a blood alcohol level of 0.131 at the time
of the crash.
A blood sample was reportedly with-
drawn from the suspect approximately four
and a half hours after the collision.
It was revealed that ethyl alcohol was in
the suspect's system at the time of crash.
No apparent defects were reportedly de-
tected in the Acura prior to crash, according
to mechanical inspection.
Morales was the only passenger wearing
a seatbelt at the time of the crash, according
to the affidavit.
Morales was also determined as the
only occupant displaying occupant restraint
marks.


the moment the bout started, and kept Lon-
don at the end of his left jab. The jab set the
tone of the bout and allowed Flynn to land
several other punches.
In the second round, Flynn nearly
knocked London down, but the fire fighter
was able to stay on his feet as the round
ended. At the conclusion of the three-round
bout, Flynn won a unanimous decision.
Flynn made a strong point to recognize
all the personnel of the Palm Beach County
Fire Rescue who helped make this year's
Heros in Action a complete success.


The suspect reportedly traveled at least
86 mph at time of collision - 31 mph over
the speed limit of 55.
Clear and unobstructed 55 mph signs
were prominently displayed along roadway
edges, investigators said.
The suspect, according to witnesses,
quickly and dangerously passed numerous
vehicles by entering and traveling in the
oncoming travel lane, which led up to the
crash.
The suspect, authorities said, failed to
negotiate the gentle curving roadway while
under the influence of alcohol.
The suspect reportedly wore black jeans
when the collision occurred.
Upon inspection of vehicle, black transfer
marks were noted on the gray upholstered
ceiling at the front of the retractable sun-
roof.
Marks were made upon the driver being
ejected from the vehicle through the car's
sunroof, the investigation revealed.
There were no visual obstructions which

partment.
Both law enforcement officers are plan-
ning to be at the Florida Silver Gloves Boxing

contributed to the crash, the investigation
revealed.
No other vehicles were reportedly in-
volved in crash.
The suspect's identitywas later confirmed
by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue person-
nel and Ralph Manning, a witness.
The suspect was arrested on Sep. 5 on a
search warrant.
Booked at the Main Detention Center in
West Palm Beach, he's still there, with no
bail set.
If convicted of all the aforementioned
charges, the suspect faces up to 60 years in
prison and a fine of $40,000, according to
the Fla. State Statutes.
