By Patty Brant
The temperature rose by sever-
al degrees in Clewiston Tuesday
- evening as the Hendry County
commissioners debated proposed
new contracts for the Assistant
County Administrator, County
Engineer and Public Safety Direc-
tor. Commissioner Bill Maddox's
temper flared as he berated the
idea of double digit percentage
increases in salary for a handful of
upper level employees when
most only received a 3.5 percent
increase. At one point, Commis-


sioner Maddox moved to dissolve
the county's contract with County
Administrator Lester Baird, but the
motion died for lack of a second.
Board Chairman Bo Pelham
said he negotiated the increases
on the basis of similar positions
for comparably sized cities and
counties.
The contracts in question are
for Assistant County Administra-
tor, Public Safety/EMS Director
and County Engineer. Each serves
under the County Administrator,
at his discretion; each is appointed


by the County Administrator with
the approval of the county com-
mission.
The new salary scales are:
$80,000 for the Assistant County
Administrator; $72,500 for Public
Safety/EMS Director and $90,000
for the County Engineer. The
packages also include health care,
retirement, life insurance and four
weeks vacation.
Commissioner Janet Taylor
tried to veer away from personali-
ties and consider the employment
packages for each position, not

the individual.
Commissioner Maddox said he
would feel more comfortable if
the salaries were gradually raised.
Several citizens spoke, includ-
ing former county commissioner
Carl Berner, who said it was an
"insult to the people who elected
you and those who work for you."
Resident Charmaine Montgomery
said she'd be more amenable to
pay increases for teachers and
deputies, adding that the raises
were "absurdly out of propor-
tion."


Speaking as a private citizen,
Jeff Barwick said he spent 25 years
with the federal government and
did a lot of salary classifications.
He said they should be based on
the scope of the job. These adjust-
ments are being asked for
because these employees are tak-
ing on new responsibilities, he
said, and are a separate issue from
a normal raise.
In the end, the board opted to
keep the positions the same and
take the subject up at a work-
shop meeting in May.


Cancer event



is postponed


Several complications

become apparent


By Donna Meister
The annual Cancer Society
Relay for Life has been post-
poned until probably next.
spring. The Cancer Society
decided to table the event
until next springtime when
the Florida events are tradi-
tionally held. Port Charlotte
Cancer Society (this ;area
office) was dealing with hurri-
cane problems last fall when
planning an event of this mag-
nitude should have been start-
ed. Typically, it takes about ten
months of planning.

staff partner, Shannon Garri-


Tim Weathington and little Taylor Martin have a special bond since he saved the tod-

Neighbor saves baby from drowning

By Patty Brant
Ask any parent the whole
world resides inside their child.
There is no fear like the fear of
losing a child, and no joy like
the return of one you thought
was lost.
Little Taylor Martin is a ,
bright-eyed, very busy littlegirl.
There is, after all, so much for a
curious one-year-old to do. But
that busy little life was almost
cut short several weeks ago.
Taylor and her family herI
mom and dad, Linda and Dane
Martin, and sister, 9-year-old ,
Haley moved to LaBelle ,
from Glades County just six
months ago. Another sister, 16-
year-old Jenna, has been stay-
ing with her father in North Taylor's mom, Linda Martin, knows how lucky her family is

son, who started her position
in January. The 27-year-old,
two-time cancer survivor
came to Flora & Ella's last
Thursday evening to help
organize the LaBelle event
and committees. Unfortunate-
ly, too few interested volun-
teers showed up and most
of those felt there just wasn't
enough time to plan the siz-
able event. Several of the past
committee members are also
discouraged that of the

MLK sidewalks



remain issue


By Donna Meister
For the second month in a
row the team heard safety
concerns and complaints from
MLK community spokesper-
son Nora Fagin. Last month
she was told to tell as many
people as possible, get the
word out and go to lots of
meetings.
Her main issue seems to be
a lack of a sidewalk and curb
on MLK Blvd. It seems when
the city decided to put side-
walks in along MLK they did so
as cheaply as possible. There
is no curb so it is difficult to tell
where the road ends and the
sidewalk actually begins. Park-


ing barriers (the cement type
used in store parking lots)
were used as a makeshift curb
originally. These deteriorate
and can be moved about
when bumped. Ms. Fagin also
stated that MLK Blvd. is used
as a drag strip cut through
from Cowboy Way to Highway
80. Deputies at times are posi-
tioned at the intersections, but
not actually on MLK to catch
the speeders, she said. Speed
bumps are not an option, even
though Fire Chief Dwayne
Pratt is not opposed to them.
Studies show that people drive

Clinic offers diverse services


By Donna Meister
The former office of Dr. Jef-
fery Martin, dermatologist, and
also former location of the
Columbia's Belmont Woods
Medical Center is now home to
the full service medical center,
HealthFlorida Medical Center.
The spacious and beautiful
office complex is in an excellent
location for all of LaBelle resi-
dents.
Dr. Jose Villar, M.D. is the
Medical Director and an Ernest
Hemingway look-alike some
might say.
Dr. Villar is a General Practi-
tioner, who was raised in Chica-
go and followed his parents to
Cuba. He has been back in
Florida for over ten years. He
has worked in a pain manage-
ment medical facility and inter-
nal medicine. He prefers to see
patients that he has an estab-
lished history of. He will see all
types of cases except gynecolo-
gy, obstetrics and pediatrics.


However, he will not refuse a
sick child if his services are
needed. He says he will gladly
address the needs of the com-
munity and offer continual care
and service.
Hendry County EMS Director
Randy Bengston and EMS staff
members have toured the new
facility to familiarize themselves
with the emergency entry and
what is available. They were
pleased to find x-ray equipment
and all the equipment needed
for acute care and minor emer-
gencies. Mr. Bengston feels that
competition is good for area
patients. With more people
moving to the area more doc-
tors and services are welcome,
and he is glad to see them here.
"It offers local people another
option," he said. Being an acute
care facility means that fewer
trips have to be made to a hos-
pital emergency room and they
can offer more hometown serv-
ice. Mr. Bengston says EMS staff


make calls for people who
come to the EMS station to
make sure a doctor is available
locally. He says they get 700-800
walk-ins yearly. Once a patient
is in the ambulance they must
be taken to a hospital. Having a
local clinic will save the county
a tremendous amount of
money when x-rays and lacera-
tions can be taken care of right
here.
Local resident Teresa Guns-
by is the medical assistant and
phlebotomist who draws blood
for the lab. Samples are picked
up daily and results returned
the next day. They have a full
time physical therapist. They
also offer ultra sounds, pul-
monary rehab, cardiac rehab,
nerve conduction studies, eco
cardiograms, renal functions,
CAT scans, doplar studies and a
24-hour answering system
where the doctor can be paged.

Dr. Jose J. Villar, M.D. is happy to be of service to the lovely
town of LiBelle.-He especially notices and appreciates the
friendliness of its people.

Carolina, but was expected here
for Spring Break on March 16.
She will be coming here to live at
the end of the school term.
Although new, the family quickly
became part of the neighbor-
hood. About 6 p.m. on March 15,
Linda, Taylor and Haley were all
in their front yard, enjoying their
: new neighbors. Dane was still at
work. The yard was filled with
kids doing what they do best -
having a good time. It was an
enjoyable evening till Linda real-
ized that Taylor was gone. She
had been right beside her mom,
feeding the neighbor's dog,
Cocoa, only a moment earlier.
So Linda went around back to
fetch her youngest daughter.
The next thing neighbors
* heard were frantic screams that
* brought neighbor Tim Weathing-
. ton through the house, over a
: kitchen counter and bouncing
' off the sliding glass doors to the
* pool area at a dead run. He found
: Linda holding a limp, dripping
' Taylor. Her lips were blue; her
skin was ashen and she wasn't
breathing.
A former volunteer firefighter,
Tim took the child and began
CPR at once. Tim's son, T.J.,
assisted Linda who was so hys-
terical she couldn't remember
,&,what to tell the 911 dispatcher.
Meanwhile, Tim continued CPR
until Taylor finally started to
4,


respond. When the water and
stomach contents started to
come up, he said he worked
even harder to keep it coming..
Another neighbor came in with a
cell phone and assisted with the
911 call.
Taylor finally began to whim-
per, then cry and the EMTs
arrived, taking her to meet a
medivac helicopter in Alva, then
on to Lee Memorial HealthPark.
Tim remained calm, packed a
bag for Taylor and drove Linda to
the hospital. All the way, Tim was
on the phone, calling Dane and
answering calls from concerned
friends and family while Linda
chewed her nails and prayed.
The family's minister, Pastor
Donnie Murphy of Lighthouse
Ministries in Moore Haven, had
already been contacted and little
Taylor was already on prayer
chains throughout the area.
Word travels fast and some 40
well wishers crowded the wait-
ing room at the hospital by the
time it was all over. Linda
remained secluded, praying for
her baby. She knew Taylor would
live, but said her greatest fear
was that her precious child had
sustained brain damage.
At the hospital, Dr. Roberto
Monge, a pediatric intensive care
physician, gave his full attention
to his small patient. When he
was certain she was out of dan-
ger, he finally talked to the dis-
traught mother. Linda said she
heard little of what he told her,
only recalling the words she had

been praying to hear little Taylor
had no brain damage.
Once she knew her daughter
was miraculously all right, the
self recriminations began. "If
only... what if... what should I
have done..."
Dr. Monge, a member of
HealthPark's drowning recovery
team, took pains to explain to
Linda that she was not a "bad
mother." Every parent, at one
time or another, has a similar
experience, most often with no
serious consequences. Some-
times, though, a tragedy occurs.
She should not blame herself, Dr.
Monge assured her. She. had
done all the right things: The
pool was enclosed; Taylor had
been taught to stay away from
the pool. Linda tried to get Taylor
into swimming lessons, but
could find no one to take her
until she turned two. The family
had been trying to get a child-
proof fence installed around the
pool, but no one from Fort Myers
would come out to do the work.
"Kids are called kids because
that is what they are they are not
small adults," Dr. Monge said,
"These things happen because
children do not understand con-
sequences. No one can watch a
child 100 percent of the time."
For Tim, the hardest part of
the ordeal was calling Dane to
tell him what happened.
Looking back on the ordeal,
Linda said she thinks that Taylor
followed her little dog, Bear,
around the house and through


rolling papers and matches con-
cealed on his person when he was
returning to Hendry, County Jail,
where he was serving weekends.
On April 2, Francisco Perez,
32, was arrested for criminal mis-
chief with damage over $1,000. He
allegedly threw a pool ball through
the door window and several other
windows at the LaBelle Trade Cen-
ter after refusing to pay for his beer.
On April 3, Raul Beraza, 23,
was arrested for burglary of a con-
veyance after two county workers
flagged down a deputy at the Court-
house. They said they witnessed
Beraza break into a countyvehicle.
* On April 2, Wanda M. Bishop,
34, was arrested for aggravated bat-
tery on a law enforcement officer.
She allegedly stabbed a corrections


the doggie door into the pool
enclosure. A teacup Yorkie, Bear
was barking, trying to pull her
out when Linda found the child.
He stayed right by Taylor's side
as Tim worked on her.
In the weeks since the acci-
dent, Linda found a pool compa-
ny in Clewiston that came right
out the next day to begin putting
up a childproof fence and Taylor
will be enrolled in swimming les-
sons in June, after she turns two.
Taylor's family thank God and
wonderful neighbors that their
baby is still with them, whole
and sound. With a wide grin
Linda says, "I can't keep my
hands off her!"
Tim and Taylor have forged a
strong bond through their ordeal.
He and fianc Winn Tanner, will
be married next month. They
were supposed to be married last
month and, in fact, should have
been on their honeymoon when
Taylor nearly drowned. Fortu-
nately for the Martin family, those
plans did not work out.
Knowing how blessed they
are, Linda and Dane have com-
mitted to participating in a
drowning awareness seminar at
HealthPark, part of April Drown-
ing Awareness Month, to share
their important message.
Because of Tim's quick and
selfless action, Taylor will be able
to enjoy her second birthday on
April 29. Her mom is planning a
doozy.

On April 2, Paul J. Lawernce,
45, was arrested for possession of
cocaine and narcotics equipment.
Lawrence was a passenger in a
vehicle stopped for a brake light
violation. The driver, Barbara Brad-

On March 31, in conjunction
with Officer James Woodruff of the

Auto Task Force, Sgt. Lee was able
to identify the components/parts
that were on the seized vehicle as
being from a 1992 Ford truck
reported stolen through the Cape
Coral, Florida Police Department
on December 20, 2004. The stolen
truck was valued at $11,000.
The investigation also revealed
that other vehicles at the N. Palm

stolen and had been dismantled
and chopped. Mr. Cardoso was
interviewed again on April 4, at
which time he stated he had been
in sole possession of the 1995 Ford
truck since October 25, 2004,
through February 26, 2005. Based
on evidence of the investigation Mr.
Cardoso was arrested and booked
into the Hendry County Jail for

the assistance of the Miami-Dade

MISSY IS MISSING
In case you've missed our ad for the last couple of weeks,
we'd like you to know our dog Missy is missing -
Have you ever lost a pet? If you have, then you know the
heartache that we are feeling.
It all started on Tuesday, March 15 around 8:30 p.m.
when our seventeen-month old Boston Terrior (Boston
Bulldog) left the yard and disappeared. She was last seen
headed north on Fernwood Lane in Muse.
Her name is Missy, and she weighs approximately nine
and one half pounds. She is black with a little white on her
face, chest and two front paws. She loves children, loves to
play with her stuffed animals, chases balls and the only
way she can hurt anyone is when she licks you to death.
She loves toBe r6u bed. She only likes to eat chicken, ham,
roast, rice and' gravy. As you can tell she is precious. She is
currently on eye medication. She normally wears a harness
or collar, but did not have one on because she had just had
a bath.
Please, if you have found our Missy, please call us at 675-
6026 or 239-671-4363 and we will happily pay you a reward
for finding our puppy. Please let us hear from you if you

Speak up for your rights
I don't see the law being enforced in this county. If you call the
sheriff office, all you will get is, "we are sorry, but we didn't see it so
we can't do anything." I will bet you my week's paycheck that if you

count at least 20 cars running that red light. And that is on a slow day.
Folks, it is just going to get worse. The longer you wait to attend a

Candidate withdraws


Fellow citizens,
It is as a responsible and coii-
cerned member of the communi-
ty that I am writing this letter. As
many of you know I formally reg-
istered with the Hendry County
Board of Elections to enter the
2005 Mayoral campaign.,
My candidacy came as a result
of considerable community sup-
port from both within the city lim-
its and those living in the county. I
am very humbled and thankful
for the support, good wishes, and
inspiration I received during the
past few months.
As there is no greater and
more important investment of
time and energy than that of serv-
ing and preparing our youth for
the future, I feel as though my


responsibilities to the American
Cadet Corps, Freedom Day and
actively participating in local civic
organizations is where at this time
my responsibility to our commu-
nity lies.
It is with humble resolve that I
remove myself as a candidate for
the 2005 LaBelle Mayoral race. I
am a firm believer in the strength
of the Democratic process, and
have resigned to the fact that
good leadership can only come as
a result of an informed and active
citizenry.
Thank you all for your time
and consideration regarding this
issue.
Respectfully,
Richard GJ. Williams


Actions speak louder than words


(The following release from the
Florida Association of Counties'
president Cliff Thael, has been
printed previously in the Miami
Herald, Panama City News Herald
and the Tallahassee Democrat.)
By Cliff Thaell
When Gov. Jeb Bush presented
this year's State of the State
address, he emphasized a compre-
hensive strategy for future develop-
ment in Florida. Senate President
Tom Lee echoed those sentiments
when he said growth management
may be the most important issue
we'll ever face, because the laws
become our vision and the vision
becomes our future.
The financial consequences of
restricting county resources while
growth continues means that Flori-
da roads will be in gridlock,
schools will become more over-
crowded and water will become
more scarce. Legislators interested
in a comprehensive growth strate-
gy should consider long-term solu-
tions by giving counties greater
flexibility, not less.
Yet three weeks into the legisla-
tive session, proposals are moving
through the legislative process that
contradict the comprehensive
vision for Florida's growth support-
ed by our state leaders.
If passed, these proposals will
make it hard, if not impossible, for
counties to pay for the roads,
schools, water, sewer and storm
water systems and other infrastruc-
ture critically needed for the type of


lifestyle our constituents expect.
Rather than empowering local
governments to plan, manage and
pay for growth in their communi-
ties, these proposed measures will-
bind the hands of local elected offi-
cials by limiting their ability to con-
trol, much less pay for, growth. A
few examples are:
Agricultural Economic Develop-
ment (SB 716 and HB 561): Among
other things, this legislation makes
it easier to reclassify agricultural
property into more lucrative cash
crops, like office complexes and
houses. The bill raises serious
questions about responsible
growth management. It weakens
counties' ability to make land-use
decisions by placing authority in
the hands of the special interest
groups rather than the elected rep-
resentatives of the people.
How will this proposal fit into a
community's comprehensive plan
for growth? How does the bill
address sprawl? What about
increased demand for roads,
schools and water brought on by
the unplanned development. Who.
pays?
Impact Fee (SB 2302 and HB
1173): this bill restricts counties'
ability to impose and collect
impact fees on new development.
It chips away at one of the few
viable funding tools that can be
used effectively to target newcom-
er to pay for the, infrastructure
needed to accommodate them.
Consider also the fact that counties
must adhere to a concurrency


requirement mandating that infra-
structure to be available "concur-
rent with the demands of growth,"
including roads, water resources,
wastewater facilities and parks.
Charter County Millage Cap (SB
554 and HB 47): This proposed leg-
islation allows a millage cap to be
included in a county's charter that
will limit funds derived from prop-
erty taxes. Especially in conjunc-
tion with the bill that limits impact
fees, this bill caps local govern-
ments' ability to respond to
growth. Without this much-need-
ed source of funding, counties may
not be able to provide basic servic-
es, such as sheriff patrol, jails, court
facilities, libraries and public health
facilities.
Expedited Permit and Zoning
Approvals: Several proposals aim
to "speed up" the approval process
for development by forcing coun-
ties to make growth and rezoning
decisions without adequate time
for evaluation. If time frames are
not met, the development is auto-
matically approved. Instead of
empowering local governments to
plan for growth, the proposals
usurp local governments' responsi-
bility to protect the public interest.
Nearly 1,000 people move to
our great state each and everyday.
Growth is inevitable. If Florida's
counties are expected to shoulder
responsibility for growth in their
communities, they must also be
given the resources to pay for the
impacts of that growth.
The Florida Association of


Counties believes counties must
have the same authority to pay for
growth that they currently have to
plan for it.
SB 1886 by the Senate Commit-
tee on Community Affairs, along
with SB 1940 sponsored by Sen.
Jim Sebesta (R-Pinellas) and HB
1461 sponsored by Rep. Michael
Grant (R-Charlotte), are a step in
the right direction. These bills align
counties' planning authority more
closely with their ability to pay.
The legislation allows counties
greater flexibility to access existing
local funding sources by reducing
voting requirements and making
referendums optional. Simply stat-
ed, it gives authority to local elected
officials closes to the people.
Gov. Bush said in his address to
the people of Florida that we will
need great courage to achieve our
goals for the future. County leaders
are ready to roll up their sleeves
and get to work with our governor
and our legislative partners to find
strategies that keep traffic moving,
make clean water plentiful and
equip schools to provide a world
class education for our children.
If local governments are
empowered to succeed in balanc-
ing growth with the quality of life in
our communities, Gov. Bush's
promise and President Lee's vision
will be a growth management
legacy that will benefit Floridians
well into the future.


Faith In Action: Who can be a volunteer?


Thank you


Miracle child
Dear Editor,
On March 15, 2005 I acciden-
tally fell into our swimming pool.
When my mommy pulled me out
of the pool I was grey and had no
pulse, my mommy started
screaming. Our friend and neigh-
bor Tim Weathington heard her..
He ran out back to us and started
CPR. Mr. Tim did CPR on me for
several minutes before I started
breathing. I want to say thank
you, Mr. Tim, for breathing life
back into my body. You are truly
my hero. I wuv you! I know if it
was not for Jesus Christ, Mr. Tim,
and my, own special guardian
angel, Joey Peeples (my pepa), I
would not be here today. My doc-
tors and nurses call me a miracle.
I have no brain, heart or lung
damage. I also want to thank my
paramedics, flight crew, doctors
and nurses for everything they did
for me and to all my friends, fami-
ly, and my pastor Donnie Murphy


for coming to see me in the hospi-
tal!
Thank you to everyone who
called to check on me. I am send-
ing a big hug and kiss and many
thank yous to all of the churches
and all the prayers for me from
friends, family and people who
did not now me. The prayer chain
worked. God answered your
prayers. I am truly one of God's
special miracles.
Love,

washed, or a friendly visit or phone
call are also very popular.
Not all volunteer duties require a
one-on-one contact. Groups can
also volunteer. FAITH IN ACTION in
LaBelle has had the privilege of
working with groups such as the

Witch's Brew


By Pudge Lehman
Don't be fooled by the heat!
It's actually spring and a nice
time to work in the garden/yard
or just outside. I actually raked
leaves the other day, causing my
neighbor to ask if I was all right. I
never know if they mean physi-
cally or mentally!
Store all of your long-handled
yard tools in a garbage can. One
with wheels is even better so you
can wheel it to the area you are
working in. Also rake the leaves
onto an old sheet or big box.
This makes it easy to dufip into
a pile or can. I used to pick them
up in my hands until a caterpillar
stung me once. Also carry your
small tools around in a bucket.


If you are
into canning
and have a
storage
problem
with the can-
ning jar lids
(the rings) my Suzy strung them
onto a dowel and hung them on
a towel bar. Also, my friend Jack-
ie says if fruit gets ripe a little at a
time just freeze it until you have
enough fruit or enough time to
can it.
Elderly humor: The only
antique in my house is me, and
the market for that is sluggish. I
have bursts of being a lady, but it
doesn't last long. Do you nap in
your easy chair so you won't be
too tired to go to bed?

For anyone, including me, for-
merly of the majority population,
who has noticed how the minori-
ty issues rule our lives, I present
the following as to how and why
this is taking place, worldwide.
Observing, as we all are today,
the passing of Pope John Paul II, I
asked the question why no Ameri-
can Cardinal seems to be on the
"short list" for possible election as
the pope.
I was informed that because
America is the world's super
power, the Vatican would not
consider an American for pope in
order to avoid any politicizing of
the Papal office.
Coincidentally this simplistic
response to my question hap-
pened to come as I was.informed
of a major conference in Wash-
ington, DC, the week of March 13
on the "Immigration and over-
population crisis" in America.
The major spokesperson at the
conference was former Colorado
Governor Richard D. Lamm, who
spoke on eight methods for the
destruction of the United'States.
Governor Lamm didn't men-
tion the Papal position on Ameri-
ca, but I feel it fits the mold of the
growing world and U. S.. elitists'
strategy and plans to destroy the
United States of America, but in
his speech, that follows, he laid
out how it could, and in his judg-
ment is being done.
Governor Lamm said, "If you
believe America is too smug, or
self-satisfied, too rich, then let's
destroy America. It is not that diffi-
cult. No nation in history has sur-
vived the ravages of time. All great
nations rise and fall, and that an
autopsy'of history would show
that all great nations commit sui-
cide."
"How is it done? By turning
America into a bilingual or multi-
lingual and bi-cultural country.
History shows that no nation can
survive the tension, conflict and
antagonism of two or more com-
peting languages and cultures. It
is a blessing for an individual to be


It's your wod

Get.Involved


bi-lingual: however, it is a curse
for a society to be bi-lingual."
"The histories of bi-lingual and
bi-cultural societies that do not
assimilate are histories of turmoil,
tension and tragedy. Canada, Bel-
gium, Malaysia, Lebanon all face
crises of national existence in
which minorities press for auton-
omy, if not independence. Pak-
istan and Cyprus have divided.
Nigeria suppressed an ethnic
rebellion. France faces difficulties
with Basques, Bretons, Corsicans
and Muslims.
Lamm continued: "They suc-
ceed by inventing multi-cultural-
ism and encourage immigrants to
maintain their cultures. I would
make it an article of belief that all
cultures are equal. That there are
no cultural differences. I would
make it an article of faith that the
Black and Hispanic dropout rates
are due to prejudice and discrimi-
nation by the majority. Every
other explanation is out of
bounds."
"I would encourage all immi-
grants to keep their own language
and culture. I would replace the
"melting pot" with "salad bowl."
It is important to ensure that we
have various cultural sub-groups
living in America reinforcing their
differences rather than as Ameri-
cans, emphasizing their similari-
ties."
He said, "Further steps being
taken are the making of the fastest
growing demographic group into
the least educated. Adding a sec-
ond underclass, unassimilated,
undereducated and antagonistic
to our population. This second
underclass would have a 50 per-
cent dropout rate from high
school."


"Another ingredient fostering
this movement would be to get
big foundations and businesses to
fund these efforts with massive
donations.
Investing in ethnic identity and
establishing the cult of "Victimol-
ogy." Getting all minorities to
think their lack of successes was
the fault of the majority, thereby
starting a grievance industry
blaming all minority failures on
the majority population."
According to Governor Lamm,
the plan for America's downfall
would include dual citizenship
and promote divided loyalties.
Diversity would be celebrated
over loyalty and differences,
rather than similarities. Diversified
people worldwide are engaged
mostly 'in hating each other.
Sound familiar? Hating each
other, that is, when they are not
killing each other.
' A diverse, peaceful or stable
society is against most historical
precedents. People tend to under-
value the unity it takes to keep a
nation together. At the root of the
poisonous diversification is local-
ized patriotism and geographical
conditions that nurture political
division.
We need to, emphasize the
"Pluribus" in "E. Pluribus Unum"
- From Many One and de-
emphasize the "Unum" if we are
to stabilize America for the ages.
Outlawing any words, actions
or deeds that attack diversification
and disturb its cult status must be
the law of the land. If and when
debate against diversity is
attempted, it must be shouted
down with words like "racist,"
"xenophobic," "homophobic,"
"prejudiced," to stifle discussion


and debate.
Now having laid out a plan for
making America a bilingual/bicul-
tural country, having, established
multi-culturalism, having the
large foundations fund the doc-
trine of "Victimology," it would
next make it impossible to
enforce our immigration laws.
This would develop a mantra that
because immigration has been
good for America in the past, it
must always be good. It would
make every legal, individual
immigrant sympathetic and:
ignore the cumulative impact of
uncontrolled millions of them.
Not in Hendry County you say?,
Depending on your point of view,;
after reading Governor Lamm's-
presentation, how many of his:
enumerated issues are proceed-;
ing methodically, quietly, darkly,,
yet pervasively across all of the,
United states as I speak? Every.
discussion is being suppressed.
Over 100 languages are ripping,
the foundation of our educational-
system and national cohesive-,
ness. American history is adulter-;
ated, plagiarized, politicized or:
altered in fact and format.
American jobs are disappear-,
ing into the Third World as corpo-;
rations develop a Third World in'
America. California looks to be,
the most "diversified" example to'
date, with ten million, to date, ille-
gal aliens and growing fast.
It is reminiscent of George
Orwell's book, "1984." In his'
book, these slogans are engraved
on the walls of the "Minister of
Truth" building: "War is peace."
"Freedom is slavery." "Ignorance
is strength." It occurs to me that
while you still have a choice,
accept "diversity" and its "perver-
sity" or "wise up" and "rise up"!
Eliminate the negative and
accentuate the positive!
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville (Hendry
County Citizen and shareholder)

'Growing Orchids Is Fun,' the last word in orchids


By Barbara Oehlbeck
This small volume is among the
most cherished for those who love
orchids. The late Albert P.
Hollingsworth wrote it and he is
still proving his point with its 25th
edition on selecting, growing and
enjoying orchids. The book was
written for everyone who takes joy
in growing these exotic flowers.
The thrill of seeing the beauty, bril-
liance and grandeur of orchids in
full bloom can bring great happi-
ness and with minimal work.
The book was written in .everyday
terms. One spray and arch of
orchids, several blooming at one
time on one stem, often stay beau-
tiful for months. There are no
secrets to successful orchid grow-
ing, except perhaps for love for the
flower. The five rules are: proper
watering; air, light, warmth and
fertilizer.
Watering is simple. Let your
orchids drink water like you do.
When they're thirsty (dry) water
them, when the growing medium
is wet, leave them alone. As to the
water, if you can'drink it, it's fine
for your orchid. If your water
source goes through a softener,
flush pots thoroughly with pure
water once a week to avoid salt
build-up. This is also a good prac-
tice if you fertilize your plants regu-
larly. Use rainwater, distilled water,
or well water.
Phalaenopsis is one of the most
popular "home grown" orchids. A
multitude of flowers is a spectacle

to behold and more important, the
flowers last longer than any other
orchid. From 5-10 flowers open at
one time and continue to bloom
for three months. When the flow-
ers are gone and the stem is still
green, cut off the stem. above a
joint usually where the first flower
bloomed. Another stem will grow
and flowers will continue to
bloom some for the entire year.
In a little over 30 years, hybridiz-
ers are producing highly prized
Phalaenopsis plants of startling
brilliant blooms. Varied new
hybrids constantly thrill growers
with six-inch blooms a triangle of
petals with a spade lip. Most have
lo6g stem spikes with multitudes
of dazzling flowers, including
white, light and deep pinks, yel-
lows, newly created reds, deep
stripes, spotted, colored lips and
many autumn color combina-
tions.
Care of Phalaenopsis is similar
to African Violets take care with
watering to see that the plant is not
kept saturated. These handsome
plants are known as "low light"
orchids and will grow in about any
situation with bright indirect sun-
light. Phalaenopsis will tolerate
heavy sunlight, but too intense it
will burn the leaves. They grow


well throughout the year by bright
windows or anywhere there is
adequate light, moisture, heat and
movement of air. Where air is dry,
plants will benefit by rubbing a
wet cloth over the leaves or mist-
ing frequently. It will grow and
bloom in more shade than most
other orchids.
Growing Orchids Is Fun is

COES plans blood drive


The school year is coming to an
end, but Country Oaks Elementary
still needs your help. They are host-
ing a community blood drive to
help boost the low blood supply.
All blood types are needed.
Florida's Blood Centers reminds
all parents that trauma is the num-
ber one reason people need blood.
Even though our snowbirds are
migrating north and our pbpula-
tion is reduced, summer vacations
result in more families taking to the
road. Therefore increasing their
risk of injury.
Children's activities will migrate


to the outdoors. Tree swings over
swimming holes and forts will
soon be built high in the trees. And
accidents will happen. For exam-
ple, a compound fracture can
require up to three pints of blood.
Be a responsible parent and
help your community by support-
ing your child's school blood drive.
Florida's Blood Centers will have
their mobile unit at Country Oaks
on Monday, April 18, from 8:30
a.m.-3:30 p.m.
All blood donors receive a free
mini-physical including a choles-
terol check.


Kiwanis adds meeting


According to President
Debra Woodford, in order to
better accommodate mem-
bers and prospective mem-
bers, along with the weekly
Tuesday morning meeting, an
additional Tuesday night meet-
ing will start on April 19, 7 p.m.


I Law Offices of Robert L.


at Flora & Ella's Restaurant.
This meeting will be held every
third Tuesday of the month.
Kiwanis' theme is to Serve the
Children of the World. Every-
one is invited to come join
them.

Cowgirls ranked



number two


By Roger Alexander
Cowgirl softball is running
wild and they don't look like
they will stop any time soon.
Ranked number two in the state,
the LaBelle girls seem to mow
over anyone in their way. The
latest two victims were Golden
Gate and Palmetto Ridge.
In their first victory, the Cow-
girls followed Amanda Atun to
victory as she captured her 13th
win on the season loading
the area in strikeouts with 135
and second in victories came
away with another shutout.
LaBelle won going away 10-0.
The Cowgirl's attack consist-
ed of 13 hits with Alexa Reddish
getting a triple to help the team.


The Cowgirls started off slowly
as they got just one run in the
first two innings, but then
exploded for three in the third
and four more in the forth.
Their next game was even
better as they defeated Palmetto
Ridge 19-3. This time the offense
pounded out 22 hits while giving
up just three. Alexa helped the
team once again, but this time it
was from the pitchers mound as
she got a rare start and never
came off the mound until the
game was over.
Paige and Heather Raulerson
carried the big bats for the Cow-
girls as they combined for five
hits and four RBIs.


Cowboy baseball


fights for first win


By Roger Alexander
The Cowboys baseball team
fell to 0-11 this past week as they
lost to Golden Gate by a 9-0
score and then lost to Clewiston
by 8-4. Although discouraged,
Coach Dunbar is still upbeat. He
said that his team may be 0-11
but they play every night like
they are 11-0. "That's all I can
ask for right now," he said.
Golden Gate jumped out to a
five run lead after two innings
and then cruised to victory off
the pitching of freshman Caleb
Jordan and Junior Ryan Parrish.
Ryan come in after the strug-
gling Jordan and pitched five
innings of relief while giving up
just two earned runs. -
In the game against Clewis-
ton the Cowboys took a 4-2 lead
into the sixth inning, but Clewis-


ton rallied and came away with
the victory. Blake .Basquin
pitched 6 1/3 strong innings and
then tried to help the cause with
a three-run home run. Arturo
Alvarez also tried to get the team
over the hump with a three-for-
three night that included two
doubles.
"We are going to continue to
scratch and bite until we put
everything together. The losses
are not from a lack of effort but
experience and depth on the
mound right now," Coach Dun-
bar said after the latest loss.
The Cowboys will try once
again to get into the win column
as they go to Moore Haven and
then come home for a game
against SW Florida Christian.
They finish out the week at
North Port.


Cowboys track team


is running hard


By Roger Alexander
The Cowboys track team ran
in two races this past week and
came away with four second
place finishes, as well as a cou-
ple of third and fifth place finish-
es. The next outing the team will
run in will be districts at Golden
Gate.
In the Riverdale race, the
Cowboys came away with a sec-
ond place finish by Josh
Chisholm in the 800 meters. He.
then went out and helped the
4x100 relay team to a second
place finish as well. The other
members of that team were Ben
Daily, Gabriel Puente and Del-
rick Thompson.


Football


team


back to


weightlift

Members of the Cowboy
football team traveled to Naples
High School recently to com-
pete in an annual spring event.
Teams that were included were:
Naples, North Ft. Myers, Gulf
Coast, Clewiston,. LaBelle,
Cypress Lake. Naples won the
meet with Gulf Coast and North
Ft. Myers coming in second.
Matt Davidson had the high-
est total of any lifter in any
weight class with a 1093 lb.
total. "Matt has state competi-
tion coming up so he did a low
clean 308 lbs., but squatted 450
lbs. and benched 335 lbs.," said
Coach Kelley. Noel Devine of
North Fort Myers also a very
impressive returning running
back had a 945 total in the 175
class.
' With spring football just
around the corner the meet is
held to get players headed back
to the weight room for the sum-
mer and promote improvement
for next year's team. The Cow-
boys will hold their spring game
at home this year on May 25.
Summer workouts will be held
starting the next week. For more
info on spring football or sum-
mer work out time please call
Coach Dunbar or Coach Kelley
at the high school.


Josh continued with the
same results in the Moore Haven
faces as well. Once again he fin-
ished second in the 800 and
then helped Matt Davidson,
Kendee Brown and Daily cap-
ture second in the 4x100.
Chisholm then went on t6 cap-
ture third in the 4x400 relay with
Puente, Daily and Brown.
Will Davis ran his way to a
fifth place finish in the 3200
meters while Jordan Nash fin-
ished third in the discus. Bill
Anderson took fifth in the shot
put.

SPORTS FANS!
I BET
YOU
DIDN'T
KNOW
Brought to you by
Lori Langford
When Anaheim Angels right fielder
Vladimir Guerrero was named the
American League MVP in 2004, it
marked the fourth time in AL history
and the fifth time overall that a player
switched leagues and won the MVP
award in the frst season with his new
league. How many of the othe others can
you name? The three others who
became MVPs in their first AL season
were Frank.Robinson with Baltimore
in 1966, Dick Allen with the Chicago
White Sox in 1972, and the only pitch-
er, Willie Hernandez with Detroit in
1984. The only National Leaguer was
Kirk Gibson with Los Angeles in 1988.
In only his second NBA season and
at the tender age of 20, Cleveland's
LeBron James had established himself
as one of the league's brightest stars.
At the midway point of the 2004-05
season, James was averaging more
than 25 points per game, more than
seven rebounds and more than seven
assists. Only four players in league
history have averaged 25, seven and
seven for a full season. Do you know
whb they were? Michael Jordan and
Larry Bird both did it, but only for one
season each. John Havlicek did it
twice, and Oscar Robertson did it an
amazing six times in his career.
Sadly, the cancellation of the 2004-
05 NHL season coincided with death
in February of '05 of a man named
Louis Sutter. Sutter had seven sons,
and incredibly, all but the oldest
played in the NHL For five seasons in
-the 1980s, the six Sutter brothers were
all playing in the league at the same
time. Over the course of their careers,
they combined to play in 4,994 regu-
lar-season and 603 playoff games,
score 1,320 goals and collect 1,615
assists. Their names: Brian, Darryl,
Duane, Brent, and twins Rich and
Ron.
I'll bet you didn't know, coming or
going, that when the rubber hits the
road, you can't afford not to buy from
Langford.

Cowgirl's tennis


beats Clewiston


By Roger Alexander
The Cowgirl's tennis team
came away with another victo-
ry this past week as they
defeated Clewiston in a 5-2
match and ran their record to
6-3. The Cowgirls had to over-
come a rare defeat by ace
Amanda Pittman to get the vic-
tory. Pittman fell in three sets
as she won the first set 6-1,

YOU


SHERRI AND BONNIE DENNING
TOO MANY EXPERTS
You have just found the house,
and you are feeling excited and
confused at the same time. You
trust the agent who helped you
find it and feel that the advice you
received is solid. But you also
want to get opinions about the
house from your best friend, your
parents, and your Uncle Chuck,
who has an inactive real estate
license.
If you get too much input, you
could find yourself even more
confused than you already are.
Your best friend can provide
moral support, but probably
doesn't know the market. Your
parents may go into shock
cause they feelthat they got so
much more house for their money
30 years ago--and it cost them a
fraction of the price you are going
to pay. Uncle Chuck may have
passed the real estate exam a few
years ago, but his insights are not
as crucial as those of a profession-
al who is currently working the
market. It's not that you should-
n't consult your family and
friends--just don't go overboard.
Rely on the advice of profession-
als you trust- a structural inspec-
tor, loan officer, and a good
Realtor so that you can fed com-
fortable about having made an
informed decision.
Sherri's daughter, Bonnie, a CPA,
brings her expertise to form a dynamic
team ready to serve all your real estate
needs.

Vasquez earns national award


The United States Achievement
Academy has announced that
Nancy Vasquez of LaBelle has been
named a United States National
Award Winner
in physical edu-
cation. This
award is a pres-
tigious honor
very few stu-
dents can ever
hope to attain.
In fact, the acad-
emy recognizes
fewer than 10 Nancy
percent of all Vasquez
American high
school students.
Nancy Vasquez, who attends
LaBelle Middle School, was nomi-
nated for this national award by Ms.
Jacqueline a coach at the school.
She will appear in the United States
Achievement Official Yearbook,
which is published nationally.


"Recognizing and supporting our
youth is more important than ever
before in America's history. Certainly,
United States Achievement Acade-
my winners should be congratulated
and appreciated for their dedication
to excellence and achievement, said
Dr. George Stevens, Executive Direc-
tor of the United States Achievement
Academy.
-The academy selects USAA win-
ners upon the exclusive recom-
mendation of teachers, coaches,
counselors, and other qualified
sponsors and upon the Standards
of Selection set forth by the acade-
my. The criteria for selection are a
student's academic performance,
interest and aptitude, leadership
qualities, responsibility, enthusi-
asm, motivation to learn and
improve, citizenship, attitude and
cooperative spirit, dependability
and recommendation from a
teacher or director.

'A Party To Murder' to be performed at the playhouse


The final play of the 2004-
2005 season at the Firehouse
Theater is an Agatha Christie-
style whodunnit, by Marcia Kash
and Douglas E. Hughes.
It's Halloween and six people
have come to play a murder-
mystery game hosted by mys-
tery writer Charles Prince (Bill
Bruce) at his rustic cottage on
an island in the famous Cassan-
dra Lakes. The guests, Valerie
(Barbara Brandenberg), McKen-
zie (Brittany Steinke), Willy (Axl
Jones), Elwood (Bob Butts), and
Henri (Sue Elser) are settling in
for a weekend of fun when
ghosts from the past begin to
haunt them. When guests begin
to turn up dead, it is clear that all
is not as it seems. Secret pas-


sages, hidden bodies and a 25-
year-old mystery all twist and
turn together leading to an unex-
pected and terrifying ending.
Director Sue Elser, her cast
and crew have been working
hard to bring you an enjoyable,
exciting finish to this seasons
productions.
This play was first produced
in 1996 and has been performed
on stage in the United States,
Canada, and the United King-
dom. The Cincinnati Post said,
"Rather stunning," and the
Oxford Press review read,
"Enough to turn Dame Edna
green with envy." '
The show runs April 22-24
and April 29-May 1 at The Fire-
house Cultural Center, located at


241 N. Bridge Street in LaBelle.
Friday and Saturday the curtain
opens at 7 p.m. Sunday perform-
ances are 2 p.m. matinees. Tick-
ets are $10 in advance (call 863-
675-3066 and leave your name,


phone number, date you wish to
attend and the number of tickets
you wish to reserve) or $12 at
the door. Master Card and Visa
are accepted for you conven-
ience.

Thank heaven for little girls!
This year's Little Miss Pageant used classic TV shows as
the theme for its annual fundraising event. The Caloosa-
hatchee Charter Chapter of the American Business
Women's Association gave over $5,000 in scholarships
and educational seminars in 2004 to 'worthy women
entering college or vocational training programs and
also to women who need to refresh job skills in order to
re-enter the work force. Masters of Ceremonies were
Dave Roberts of FOX television and Christy Sutton. In
the Princess category, from left: first runner-up Abby
Lynne Arnold, Princess Megan Price (also the winner of
the Best Costume Ava Gabor of Green Acres) and
second runner-up and Miss Backstage Skylar Bell.

a wide range of experience in pho-

gram a success.

Butler's Table


Add a touch of elegance to any home with this adap-
tation of an English butler's table. With the leaves
folded down, it's ideal for use as a coffee table. With
the leaves folded up, it's easy to move it out of the
way or push it against a wall.
When opened, the table is 30 inches wide by 42
inches long by 17 inches high. The solid brass
hinges are spring-loaded and flush-mortised, adding
a professional touch.
The plan includes step-by-step instructions with
photos, traceable patterns (where applicable) and a
complete materials list and cutting schedule.

Sun Trellis
When it's hot, a sun trellis like this one extends a
home's living area, provides a shady place for barbe-
cues and shields people and pets from the summer
sun.
Although this sun trellis project is large-either
12 feet by 16 feet or 12 feet by 24 feet-it's really
not difficult. Its simple post-and-beam construction
uses mostly standard cuts of rough Douglas fir,
which can be painted or stained. Do-it-yourselfers
can substitute cedar, pine or another weather-resis-
tant lumber.


Sun Trellis plan (No. 608)... $9.95
Patio Projects Package (No. C99)
Three projects incl. 608... $22.95

Dear Classified Guys,
l am the daughter of two certi-
fied pack rats and have happily
continued the family tradition
by becoming a queen pack rat
myself. I throw nothing away
and my apartment looks like it.
This wasn't a problem until I
broke my leg skiing. Now, with
my leg in a cast, I trip over all
the clutter on my way to the
bathroom. However, I found an
ad in the classified for a
"chaos buster". That might be

what I need, someone to help
me organize. But will they
make me throw things out? Will
I have to organize myself or will
they do it for me? If they do
it, how will I ever find ,
anything again? Please
offer some insight for
this limping clutter bug.
*. *

Cash: Well, it sounds like your
skiing accident has put you in the
middle of a big mess...your
house. A "chaos buster" might be
exactly what you need.
Carry: It's amazing how much
we can collect. I throw things out
all the time, but somehow, my
attic just keeps collecting things.
Fortunately, you're on the right
track. Ifyouhave trouble clean-
ing your clutter, it's always a good
idea to get help.
Cash: Professional organizers
offer a.variety of services. Some
will clean out for you while others
can help you create an organiza-
tional system. The later may be
your best option since it helps cre-
ate a long-term solution to your
clutter.
Carry: You should expect a
good "chaos buster" to sit down
with you in the beginning and dis-
cuss the goals before the cleaning.
For example, you may not need to
alphabetize your food pantry, but

it may beagood idea to throw out
the two-year collection of maga-
zines you've been saving, each for
that one good article.
Cash: You'll find that the hard-
est part is throwing away items
you have an emotional attachment
to,butnolongerneedoruse.

who can use it. And get a receipt
when you drop it off. Donated
items can also be a tax deduction.





Clever Kid

Since only my son and I live
in our house, I often ask him to
help out. However, being a
teenager, he looks for every
shortcut to get the job done
quickly.
After Christmas I asked him
if he would make room in the
garage for our Christmas deco-
rations. I knew it would be a
task since we store practically
everything in there from floor
to ceiling. He mumbled a lot,
but eventually made his way to
the garage.
Within minutes, he was back
inside plopped in front of the
TV. "1I thought I asked you to
make room in the garage," I
quickly scolded.
"I did," he replied."I moved
you car into the driveway,"
(Thanks to Chrissy H.)

Cash: Your "chaos buster"
shouldn't dispose of anything you
don't want them to, but keep an
open mind as you work with
them. Be sure that the items you
keep are truly important to you or
you'll need in the near future.
Otherwise with your broken leg,
you could still be tripping your
way to the bathroom.
Carry: And next time, ifyou
want to avoid cleaning altogether,
consider investing in skiing les-
sons.





Cleaned Out

To those who collect stuff
around the house, cleaning out
can be emotionally overwhelm-
ing. So if you want the process to
be a little easier, try these tech-
niques to get started. First, avoid
cleaning the entire house all at
once. Pick one room to work on
each week. And second, don't go
at it alone. Invite a friend over
who can assist you with the emo-
tional decisions on what to throw
*out.


Trash to Treasure

Trash to one person can be a
treasure to another. So if you're
having trouble with something
because you think it is still useful,
consider giving it away to some-
one who needs it. After all, that
mint condition baby stroller or
the brand new sports jacket that
no longer fits can be appreciated
by someone else. Organizations
such as The SalvationArmy or
Goodwill Industries can put that
extra stuff in the hands of those
