no planner on board. With the

corporate helicopter there.
Mr. Schaeffer said that fuel
sales atthe airport have been
exceptionally strong this year,
with January's sales the highest
ever to that point. He said Febru-
ary's went even higher and
March, when the airport was
closed for construction, was the
third highest month for fuel sales
because customers picked up
fuel in a tanker truck.


County Administrator Lester
Baird said that, although losing
Rock is a "gigantic -loss to the
county," he may be available for
a while and may even be offered

Man released



in shooting


By Patty Brant
One of the men accused in
the November 2003 drive-by-
shooting that left one young
man dead and four others
injured, has been released.
The case against Samuel
Smith, now 34, was dropped
on April 20. State Attorney
spokesperson Sheri Avery
said the case against him was
nollee pressed," that is, he
was not prosecuted because
the state lacked the evidence
to present the case to a jury.
Ms. Avery said no witness-
es could positively place him
at the scene and there was no
physical evidence linking him,
either.
Also on April 20, Vernon
Smith, now 28, pled no con-
test to a charge of accessory
after the fact in the same inci-
dent. He was sentenced to


two years in the Department
of Corrections with credit for
461 days served. He will also
have to pay $370 in court
costs and $25 for the cost of
prosecution.
Both mefi were originally
accused of one count of Mur-
der (Premeditated) and four
counts of attempted murder.
According to sheriff's
reports, at about 11:15 p.m.
the night of November 28,
2003, the occupants of a gray
King-Cab pickup truck, drove
by and fired into a crowd in
the area of Martin Luther King
Blvd. and Fordson Avenue.
The incident left 18 year-old
Jeffery Beard dead of a gun-
shot wound to the head and
four other young men Clif-
ford Green, Ray Field John-
son, Ruben Green and Clifford
Love injured.

entation on April 14 at the 18th
Annual Education Commission-
er's Business Recognition
Awards in Orlando. Hendry was
one of 49 of Florida' 67 coun-
ties, to have a winner.
Local folks are well aware of
how important Steve Nisbet and.
his McDonald's restaurants in
Hendry County are to youth
activities. If you look closely at
most any worthwhile gathering
of young people Little League,
school activities, scouts you
will often see that McDonald's is
supporting that activity.
Through his businesses, Steve

education as well.
The founder and resident of

has been involved as a business
person with Hendry County
schools from the day he started

business here.
With two McDonald's
restaurants one in LaBelle and
one in Clewiston he has active-
ly sought to support district
schools. Not waiting to be
approached, he has taken the
initiative of speaking to each
school principal to explain how
he can be supportive of educa-
tion and finding out the needs of
each school.
His recent recognition by
points out just how important
Nisbet Enterprise's support has
been to Hendry County schools.
That support has taken various
forms:
Family School Night in
which school staff members
become McDonald's "employ-
ees" for a night. A portion of the
earnings for the night go to sup-
port that school;
Reading incentives:
McDonald's gift certificates for
schools as incentives for stu-
dents to achieve reading goals;
Every year teachers are


provided a free certificate for
breakfast as well as a letter seek-
ing ways Steve can be of help;
Recognition of student ath-
letes and support of athletic pro-
grams in the school district;
Recognition of student
achievement and display of stu-
dent artwork at his restaurants;
Allowing student clubs to
hold numerous car wash
' fundraisers at his restaurants.
Assisting in teacher recog-
nition, as a major sponsor of the
Hendry County Teacher of the
Year Golden Apple Awards;
Providing numerous class-
rooms with supplies for parties
and events such as cups, nap-
kins, drinks.
The school board issued this
comment on his dedication to
education:
"Steve Nisbet is appreciated
within our district as a sure
friend of education who seeks
to help improve the quality of
the schools within Hendry
County."

At least one local woman has
received a letter seeking funds
fraudulently. Fortunately, she was
wise enough to check it out before
sending money to any suspicious-
sounding group.
In fact, Attorney General Char-
lie Crist issued a fraud alert for
Florida businesses warning of a
scheme in which they receive a
solicitation for funds, supposedly
from the Florida Secretary of
State's Office. The solicitation by
the "Corporate Compliance Cen-
ter" (CCC) requested payment of a
$100 fee in accordance with Flori-
da Statutes. CCC is not affiliated
with the Secretary of State's Office
in any way.
The statute cited by CCC does
govern requirements for business-

munity Church, 4050 Colonial
Blvd., Fort Myers. The viewing will

Free gun

locks offered

at Wal-Mart
The National Safety Tour visits
Wal-Mart in in Hendry County to
distribute free cable-style gun-
locks and educational materials
to promote firearm safety in the
home. A Project ChildSafe Repre-
sentative will be at the Clewiston
Wal Mart Store on Friday, May 13,
from noon until 5 p.m.
The National Shooting Sports
Foundation has partnered with
the local law enforcement com-
munity to distribute 450,000 free
gunlocks in Florida as part of the
national Project ChildSafe (PCS)
initiative. PCS reminds gun own-
ers to take steps to prevent a
loaded gun from falling into the
hands of a child, thereby prevent-
ing tragic accidents.
Phase two Of Project ChildSafe
is funded by two grants from the
U.S. Department of Justice that
total $30 million.


does not require that these min-
utes not to mention a $100 fee -
be submitted to any outside entity,
including the Secretary of State's
Office. According to complaints
received, several readers of this
solicitation believe this is a valid
requirement. As part of the scam,
businesses are asked to submit the
minutes and a check made
payable to CCC.
"Businesses are encouraged to
be alert for this type of scam," said
Crist. "The solicitations appeal to
be authentic, but are nothing more
than a sham. Anyone who might
question whether an agency of the
government can require the pay-
, ment of funds should contact that
agency before writing a check."
In this case, the address provid-
ed for the Corporate Compliance


Center was 400 Capital Circle,
Suite 18-403, Tallahassee, FL
32301. That location is a local Unit-
ed Parcel Service (UPS) Store,
from which mail was forwarded
unopened to an address in Califor-
nia.
An investigation revealed that
similar acts occurred in Arizona
and California in 2002.
On May 2 Attorney General
Crist announced a civil lawsuit
against the California company
and its owner under Florida's
Deceptive and Unfair Trade Prac-
tices Act for attempting to defraud
thousands of Floridians.
"Those behind this outfit
claimed they were from the gov-
ernment and here to help they.
were lying on both accounts," said
Crist. "Florida's business owners


can be assured we will prosecute
companies or individuals who
defraud Florida businesses."
The investigation was in
response to a request from the
Secretary of State's office after that
office received numerous tele-
phone calls about the notice.
According to complaints
received, several recipients of
CCC's solicitation believed it was a
legitimate requirement.
The Attorney General is seeking
restitution in the amount of $100
for each victim, plus $10,000 for
each violation by CCC. The total
number of victims is unknown.
Any business owner who
believes he has been a victim
should call the Attorney General's
Fraud Hotline toll free at 1-866-9-
NO-SCAM (866-966-7226).

Cockfight operation busted in Montura


On May 7, the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office, along with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission, responded
to 125 North Estribo, Montura
Ranch Estates. Approximately
37 individuals were arrested
with two of those being juve-
niles. One individual was
charged with cocaine posses-
sion. Currency in excess of
$7,000 was also confiscated.
While searching the sur-
rounding area, approximately
63 fighting roosters were locat-
ed at the scene, along with sev-
eral dead roosters. These roost-
ers were in the process of
fighting or had already been
fought.
Investigators seized the fight-
ing roosters along with contra-
band recovered at the scene,
such as fighting spurs, straps,
steroids and syringes used for


injecting fighting roosters, as
well as numerous pens for tem-
porary and/or permanent hous-
ing of the game roosters. All
those in attendance will be
charged with Attending the
Fighting of Game Roosters,
which is a third degree felony in
the State of Florida. Three prop-
erty owners were chargedd'ith
Owning, Managing or Operating
a Facility for the purpose of
Fighting or Baiting Animals,
which is also a third Degree
Felony. Sheriff Ronnie Lee advis-
es that cockfighting in Hendry
County will not be tolerated.
Cockfighting is illegal, he said,
and it is also a very vicious and
inhuman betting sport.
Most of those arrested are
from Broward, Palm Beach and
Dade counties.
Those arrested in connection
with this incident were: Rene

Is it against the law
I was in court recently when four of Hendry County's finest
failed to appear on the date listed on their subpoena. The judge
let them off, but a regular person misses their court date and
they're locked up. Because they're police, they can do what they
want?
(Hendry County Judge James Sloan said that any witness -
officer or civilian can be held in contempt of court if they do
not show up for a subpoena. The judge can order a hearing to
find the reason. If found in contempt, they can be fined or jailed.
The party who requested the subpoena can ask the judge for
an order to show cause or the judge can do it on his/her own. If
that happens, the officer (or individual) must appear in court to
explain why he/she was not present. The judgment will then
depend on many factors, including whether it has happened
before or if their testimony was critical to the case.
Judge Sloan said in the past he has fined officers who did not
show up in court.
The sheriff's office also provides disciplinary action for offi-
cers who do not show up for court appearances. It can be a ver-
bal warning, time off without pay or even dismissal. A HCSO
spokesman also said that sometimes it may look to the public
like an officer did not respond to a subpoena when actually prior
arrangements have been made with the State Attorney.)


The evolution of Liberal Conservatism


Once upon a time, some 12,000
years ago, humans existed as mem-
bers of small bands of nomadic
hunter/gatherers. They lived on
deer and other game in the sum-
mer and would go to the temperate
climate beaches for fish and other
marine life in the winter.
Integral to these fundamental
adaptations was the invention of
beer and the wheel. First came the
beer, and then the wheel to deliver
the beer. The invention of these two
basics were the foundation of mod-
ern civilization and together were
the catalyst for the splitting of
humanity into two distinct groups:
Liberals and Conservatives.
The discovery of beer led to the
establishment of the agricultural
movement to supply the grain.
Since there was no packaging, cans
or bottles, this led to the establish-
ment of villages surrounding the
breweries for ready access to the
taverns, beerbarrows and other
short distance distribution meth-
ods.
To provide a consistent, ade-


quate supply of fresh meat to sus-
tain the population a group of the
healthiest, skilled hunters evolved
into a nightly barbecue while drink-
ing the beer. This is what became to
be known as the beginning of the
Conservative movement.
The others who were not able to
provide the fresh meat due to lesser
physical and hunting skills joined in
the barbecue and did the dishes,
made clothing, tended the fires, cut
hair, taught and recorded notable
accomplishments. This became
known as the Liberal movement.
Some of these liberal men
evolved into women. The rest, fol-
lowing their elitist gene concentra-
tions, domesticated cats, set up
group therapy sessions, group hug-
ging arid the concept of voting to
decide how to divide up the meat
and beer that the conservatives pro-
vided.
Since the liberal women
evolved from men, a marked ten-
dency has been ascribed to liberal
women having higher testosterone
levels than liberal men.


On the other hand conservative
woman's evolution has tended to
reflect their more pronounced
reliance on the male conservative's
testosterone abundance and domi-
nance.
Conservatives were proportion-
ately the majority of the settlers
from Europe who threw off their
shackles and emigrated to the new
world, America. They also played
the dominant role in opening up
the west, providing, eventually, for
the liberals to move in after the
coast was clear.
This explains why the liberals of
today feel that the Europeans are
more enlightened and sensitive to
the basic needs of the masses.
Upon closer examination, you
will find that liberals are more
involved in attitudes, rather than
principles. The best example of that
is their fixation with big govern-
ment and government programs
overshadowing individual invest-
ment and entrepreneurship.
On a local level, my recent arti-
cle on "diversity" in our population


ranks, finds its roots in the liberal
attitude toward county government
reorganization, impact fees, school
administration and revising/updat-
ing the Comprehensive Land Use
Plan.
On Tuesday, April 12, 2005, at
the Board of County Commission-
ers meeting in Clewiston, history of
sorts, was made when a County
Government Reorganization plan
was proposed and tabled.
When this issue comes off the
table in the near future, will you be
a principled participant like the
Conservative hunters/providers, or
will you resort to an attitude like the
Liberal users and nay sayers?
Watch for that meeting
announcement date and be there
to determine the future of your
county, and your place in it.
All in the practice of Liberal Con-
servatism?
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville (Hendry
County Citizen & Shareholder)


Letters


Thank You.


Angels among us
Our daughter and unborn
grandson were tragically taken
from us on April 23 as their car over-
turned in a canal between Clewis-
ton and LaBelle. Our heartfelt
thanks go to the unknown men
who jumped into the murky waters
and by the grace of God turned the
car upright and pulled our son-in-
law and 18-month old grandson
from the voer-fflled car to safety.
God blus the passing nurse and
sheriff's deputy for their expedient
care of our grandson and for their
countless efforts to save our daugh-
ter.
Our sincere thanks to the biker
preacher and his wife for their offer-
ing of prayers for our loved ones
along the roadside. You are all truly
angels among us. We will be forev-
er grateful.

Time flies fast...
Thank you, LaBelle, from Anna
Simonenko exchange student from
Kazakhstan.
How true that is I realize only
now, looking back at the time I
spent here, in the United States.
Thinking about everything that
happened to me, I understand how
much my experience means to me
and other people who became part
of my life during this year.
I really believe that the most
valuable experience I got being
exchange student is not just see-
ing another country, and improv-
ing my English; it is learning how
to be more tolerant, adjustable
and grateful. I. appreciate every-
thing that I gained and before
going back home to Kazakhstan, I
wanted to say thank you to all the
people who helped me and filled
my life here with kindness, love
and understanding. First on the
list, will sure be my host family-
people who accepted me, the girl
they never knew before, as a new
member of the family and treated
me like one. I love my host dad,
Glynn Wells, and my little sister,
Erin, as if they were my real dad
and sister. I never hesitate calling
my host dad just DAD and am
very proud of it! Another
exchange student from Thailand-
Valve-became my sister and my
friend. This is the .great experi-
ence of learning so much about
other culture!


Participating in life of LaBelle
High School was a lot of fun! I want
to say thank you to all of the teach-
ers who helped me and enriched
my knowledge! I will never forget
friends I made here and I'm sure
we will keep in touch even after I go
back.
I'm grateful to LaBelle commu--
nity for accepting me and letting me
feel like a citizen of this town!
Exchange experience is a long
Way of realizing much about other
people and yourself. It is not always
easy, but it's always fun, interesting
and amazing thing to do!
ThankYou,Anna

Construction licensing
board making progress
Editor:
A year has come and passed
since the reorganization of the
Hendry. County Construction
Licensing Board. The board con-
sists of nine members, some
original members, as well as and
new contractors and new con-
sumers. As chairman, I would
like to thank all the members,
and the county staff for their time
and contribution to this board.
. On February 24, 2005, history
was made at the monthly meet-
ing when disciplinary action was
taken upon a locally-licensed
specialty contractor for various
permitting and inspection infrac-
tions by then-acting building offi-
cial, Mr. Kenneth Bennett. Since
the retirement of Easton Bur-
chard in April, Mr. Bennett has
taken the position of Head Build-
ing Official and is doing a superb
job; the board and the communi-
ty wish him well in all of his
endeavors.
We have held hearings on
other complaints, and in some
cases, have had to have continu-


ances in order to obtain legal
representation and also have had
to take action against others; we
are now in the process of sched-
uling more hearings, for this
month.
As of November 2004 when
the Hendry County Board of
County Commissioners
approved the new ordinance,
there were some trade categories
added and these new fields of
trade will require licensure, as do
the categories previously includ-
ed. The Board of County Com-
missioners upon the recommen-
dation of the Licensing Board,
allowed a one-year grace period
from November 2004 to Novem-
ber 2005; to apply for and take
the necessary test, appropriate
for the particular trade. This
grace period is only for those
whom have been in business
prior to the new ordinance.
The board has already
received many applications for
newly licensed trades, some of
which we have approved, and
some of which we have put on a
probationary status. If locally
owned contracting businesses
are not licensed at this time, they


can go to the Hendry County
Building Department and apply
for a license. The application
must be made prior to testing to
the Hendry County Building
Department so that the depart-
ment can sponsor the candi-
date to take the test. The board
can issue a probationary license
prior to the applicant taking the
test. It is highly recommended
that you do so, as soon as possi-
ble, because the grace period is
coming to a close in a few
months. And it would be consid-
ered unlicensed activity for any-
one performing a contracting
business without a license,
which is a felony in the State of
Florida, and you would be for-
warded to the State Department
of Business and Professional
Regulations.
A list of required trade licens-
es is available at the building
department.
State Certified, Registered and
Specialty contractors have
always been required to comply
with the Hendry County Ordi-
nance, Contractors (other than
State Certified) from adjoining
counties, are required to comply


and request a Hendry County
Certificate of Competency,
which will come before the Con-
struction Licensing Board for
approval after application to the
building department has been
processed.
It is important for properly
licensed contractors, building
department officials and citizens
to observe and follow all the
proper procedures, so that the
consumer will be protected in
Hendry County.
If anyone needs assistance or,
wishes to file a complaint against
a contractor, you can contact the
Hendry County Building Depart-
ment, or its Code Enforcement
Division at (863) 675-5245.
If you need to check on a state
certified, or state registered con-
tractor you can contact the
Department of Professional Reg-
ulations.
Board meetings are held in
the Board of County Commis-
sioners Chambers, 6:30 p.m. the
fourth Thursday of each month,
which are open to the public.
Richard Yoraschek, Chairman
Hendry County Construction
Licensing Board


Faith In Action: Heart Beats and Hands


How does Faith in Action
make a difference in your com-
munity? One way is by providing
volunteer services that would
normally cost the community
over $82,000 a year. It is estimat-
ed that the national value of
services provided by volunteers
is seventeen dollars per hour.
Some volunteer services, how-
ever, create more long term car-
ing friendships that are truly
priceless.
The generosity of the com-
munity doesn't always come in
the form of hands-on volunteer
caregiving duties. Sometimes a
business or businesses pitch in
and do what others simply do
not have the expertise to do. The
following is a true Faith in Action
story from our own community.
Ms. E. was referred to Faith in
Action for any assistance the
program could provide. She had
been recently widowed, was
behind on her bills, unable to
afford her daily medications and
to make matters worse, the


ItN ctrIO('


brakes had gone out on her
vehicle, leaving her without
transportation. She received no
public assistance and had a
stroke early in life, which result-
ed in her right side being partial-
ly paralyzed.
* Faith in Action made referrals


to other local agencies to begin
the process of help for Ms. E. for
grief counseling, medication
assistance and credit counseling
to assist her with budgeting. The
one challenge left was her vehi-
cle. With no extra finances the
car would have to stay parked,
and Ms. E. would have to rely on
whomever she could for doctor
visits, grocery shopping and
other necessary trips. The staff
at Faith in Action began making
phone calls to local businesses
to get the brakes repaired on the
vehicle. Three dedicated busi-
ness owners, who wish to
remain anonymous, stepped up
to help. One donated the time
and expense of towing her vehi-
cle to the garage. The garage
owner then donated mechanics'
time to repair the brakes with
materials donated by still anoth-
er business. Within two days her
vehicle was running and Ms. E.
had very- gratefully regained
some measure of independ-
ence. Every act of human kind-


ness can-make a difference in
another person's life, as was
shown in this true example.
Heartfelt thanks go out to these
everyday heroes who define the
term, "Faith In Action."

By Chuck Woods
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE, Fla.-Half the
automotive fuel in the United
States could be replaced with
ethanol from renewable agricul-
tural crops and forest wastes and
energy crops, says a University of
Florida researcher who has
developed a biotechnology
"bug" that converts biomass and
other farm wastes into fuel.
"We can reduce our depend-
ence on imported oil and lower
the price of automotive fuel by
reformulatingg our gasoline with
ethanol derived from inexpen-
sive farm wastes," said Lonnie
Ingram, a professor of microbiol-
ogy with UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
His breakthrough technology
- a genetically engineered E. coli
bacteria produces fuel ethanol
from farm wastes such as corn
stems, cobs and leaves. A related
technology can be used to pro-
duce biodegradable plastics
from biomass.
"With the cost of imported oil
reaching record highs, we can
use this new technology to pro-
duce ethanol for about $1.30 a
gallon," he said. "Ethanol will
stretch the nation's fuel supply
and make gasoline burn more
cleanly. Gasoline-ethanol blends
also boost the octane rating of
automotive fuel."
Ingram, who was invited to
present a briefing about the tech-
nology to the staff and members


of Congress in April, says his
genetically engineered E. coli
bacteria is capable of converting
all sugar types found in plant cell
walls into fuel ethanol. Ingram's
organism produces a high yield
of ethanol from biomass such as
sugarcane residues, rice hulls,
forestry and wood wastes and
other organic materials.
The bioconversion technolo-
gy, selected by the U.S. Depart-
ment of Commerce to become
Landmark Patent No. 5,000,000,
is being commercialized with
assistance from the U.S. Depart-
ment of Energy (DOE). BC Inter-
national Corp., based in Ded-
ham,, Mass., holds exclusive
rights to use and license the UF-
engineered bacteria.
Until now, all of the world's
fuel ethanol has been produced
from high-value materials such
as cornstarch and cane syrup
using yeast fermentations. In
2005, more than 4.5 billion gal-
lons of fuel ethanol will be man-
ufactured from cornstarch and
used as automotive fuel.
He said his technology will
further expand ethanol produc-
tion by converting celluloic
waste into fuel ethanol, more
than doubling current ethanol
production.
Ingram, who is director of the
Florida Center for Renewable
Chemicals and Fuels at UF, cited
a recent report from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture and
DOE that indicates more than
one billion tons of biomass can


be produced on a sustainable
basis each year. Converting this
to fuel ethanol could replace half
of all imported petroleum in the
United States.
. A member of the National
Academy of Sciences, Ingram
said he genetically engineered
the E. coli organisms by cloning
the unique genes needed to
direct the digestion of sugars into
ethanol, the same pathway
found in yeast and higher plants.
These genes were inserted into a
variety of bacteria that have the
ability to use all sugars found in
plant material, but normally pro-
duce a worthless mixture of
acetic and lactic acids as fermen-
tation products. With the ethanol
genes, the engineered bacteria
produce ethanol from biomass
sugars with 90 to 95 percent effi-
ciency.
"Until we developed this new
technology, the chemical make-
up of biomass prevented it from
being used to make ethanol eco-
nomically," Ingram said. "Bio-
mass is a much cheaper source
of ethanol than traditional feed-
stocks such as cornstarch and
cane syrup, but the cost of pro-
cessing is higher."
Greg Luli, vice president of
research for BC International's
laboratory at the Sid Martin
Biotechnology Center in
Alachua, Fla., said the firm plans
to build a 30-million-gallon bio-
mass-to-ethanol plant in Jen-
nings, La. The plant's technology
and process will be based upon


Ingram's genetically engineered
bacteria.
"The facility, expected to be
operational by the end of 2006,
will convert organic waste into
ethanol, a form of alcohol that
can be used as an industrial
chemical and as a clean-burning
fuel," Luli said. "Waste from the
sugarcane industry in Louisiana
will serve as the plant's main
feedstock."
Ingram, who also addressed
the World Congress on Industrial
Biotechnology and Bioprocess-
ing in Orlando in April, said the
Governors' Ethanol Coalition,
which includes governors from
33 states, wants to expand feder-
al mandates on using ethanol as
a motor-vehicle fuel additive. The
coalition, which is facing opposi-
tion from oil industry, is seeking
federal incentives to boost that
production to at least eight bil-
lion gallons a year
by 2012. The move to increase
ethanol production is also sup-
ported by National Commission
on Energy Policy, a research
group based in Washington. D.C.
In Florida, State Senator Mike
Bennett, R-Sarasota, has intro-
duced two bills, 494 and 592, in
the legislature to promote the
use of renewable and alternative
fuels.
"Energy independence is
important to Florida and the
nation, and it should be a 10-year
national goal," Ingram said. "Ener-
gy independence should be the
moonshott' of our generation."

tomer service representative.

The Arts for ACT Gallery, 2265
First Street in Historic Downtown
Fort Myers, is celebrating the art-
work of Tracy Owen-Cullimore.
The art show runs until June 1.
Tracy Owen-Cullimore has a
passion for painting from the first
to the last stroke. The. harmonious
application of water media and
pastels she uses allows her to sug-
gest the life force and rhythm of
the subject as well as her own
energy and inspiration. Cullimore
takes two different approaches
with her work. When painting por-
traits, she most often chooses a
realistic approach trying to capture
the nuances that make up the indi-
vidual. When creating a figure
study, she aims for the sensual
essence of her subject and strives
for ambiguity using light, shadow,
shape and form, Allowing her
viewers to see what they want to in
the piece.
Cullimore calls her art
"Lifescapes," trying to suggest a
feeling or a personality with a burst
of visual emotion. She paints with


a kaleidoscope of color, melding
the subject with the background.
This creates an interplay of
imagery that is not too quickly rec-
ognizable and forces the viewer to
stop and take a second look.
Painting is a romantic and spiri-
tual experience for Cullimore, with
every stroke a kiss. She has but
one lifetime and the legacy she
wishes to leave is a part of her in
every piece she paints. Cullimore's
work hangs at Arts for ACT Gallery,
Dragonfly Bistro, Omni Health
Club and several business offices
locally. She has won awards in
drawing, painting and portraiture

LaBelle Cowgirls keep on swinging


By Roger Alexander
All year long the LaBelle Cow-
girls have relied on the left arm of
pitcher Amanda Atun to carry
them through. So far it has gotten
them a district title and a first round
regional match up with Pope John
Paul! That left arm got a workout
as the Cowgirls were taken to the
limit in a game that went 11 innings
before a winner was decided. Atun
had to go the distance in this one.
When it went to extra innings there
was no way Coach, Marroquin
would pull her, no matter what.
Even though he said later that he
didn't want her to pitch that much,
he added he did it to test her heart.
"She never quit at all. She was
strong out there. That is what we
will need to make it to the final four
this year," Marroquin said after the
game.
Things got started for the Cow-
girls in the bottom of the second
inning when, once again, the team
started bunting the ball. Coach
Marroquin said that is his type of
game -"Make the other team
make the errors."
Then came a few timely hits
and before the inning was over the
Cowgirls were up 3-0. The fifth
inning was almost a disaster for the
hometown girls as Pope scored
five runs when LaBelle made a few
mistakes in throwing. The Cow-
girls didn't back down because in
the bottom of the inning they
scored two of their own to even the
score at five.
That was how it would stay for
the next six innings. Both teams
had opportunities to score, but
both defenses stepped up. More


LaBelle High School Cowgirl softball just keeps rollin' along.


than three times the Cowgirls had
players on third base and were
unable to bring them in.
Pope had an opportunity in the
ninth inning to get the lead when
they had a runner on third base
and no outs. The Cowgirl defense
did a great job of holding the run-
ner on and then getting the out.
In the eleventh, Heather Rauler-
son got on with no outs as she beat
out a throw to first base. Amanda
Atun was next up and was sup-
posed to bunt her to second.
Instead, Atun lined a ball into right
center and the race was on. Rauler-


son went to second and then to
third and was waved around for
the winning run. Coach Marroquin
said that once the ball hit the
ground he knew Heather was
going home. "Either she would
score or get thrown out at home.
Either way we would have been in
good shape because Amanda
ended up on third."
Afterwards Atun said that she
went up to the plate with the inten-
tion of getting a hit. She said, "I did-
n't want to go out and pitch any
more. My arm was tired."
The Cowgirls will play this week


at home against Arcadia High
School in a match-up of two teams
that like to do the same thing, bunt.
Tuesday evening the Cowgirls
beat Arcadia, 3-2, at home, making
them one of just eight 3-A teams
out of the original 85 to continue
playing.
Perhaps this Friday 13th will be
lucky for the Cowgirls when they
play Jensen Beach, away. The girls
play at 7 p.m. They'll be playing for
the right to be one of four teams to
compete for the state title. Semi-
finals will be May 20; finals May 21,
in Tampa.

WHEN THE BUYERS
WANT TO BARGAIN
You have done everything
that your agent recommended
to make your home look won-
derful--and, you have cut the
price to the bone. Then an offer
comes in which is so low that
you are offended! Is it possible
to .reconcile your differences
and reach a meeting of the
minds when faced with such an
offer?
It may not take many con-
cessions from you to make it
work if the people who love
your house also love to bargain.
Even though it seems that you
are very far apart in dollars or
terms, the real distance may not
be all that great. Your Realtor
can help you determine if the
buyers are ready, willing and
able to carry through with the
transaction. If they are quali-
fied, the next step involves
looking at your differences.
Make a list of the discrepancies,
and then begin to look for areas
where you have some flexibili-
ty. You may have to go back
and forth several times in order
to make the transaction work.
The trick is to be patient and to
not take the process personally!
Sherri's daughter, Bonnie, a
CPA., brings her expertise to form a
dynamic team ready to serve all your
real estate needs.

'YOU
DIDN'T
KNOW
I Brought to you by
Lori Langford
The Boston Red Sox had to wait 86
years to win another World Series, so it
was perhaps no surprise that the team
I ordered about 500 championship rings I
to give out, more than double the previ-
I ous record of 225 ordered by the 2002
1 New England Patriots. No doubt, a ring
was given to each of the nine members
of Boston's 2004 opening day lineup -
Johnny Damon, Bil Mueller, Manny
Ramirez, David Ortiz, Kevin Millar,
Gabe Kapler, Jason Vertitek, Mark
Belhom and Pokey Reese. But manager
Terry Francona never used that lineup
again all year. In fact, he used 142 differ-
ent lineups during the season.
Boston defeated St. Louis in the 2004
World Series, making Cardinals manag-
er Tony La Russa just the sixth skipper
in major league history to take a team to
the series from each league, having also
guided the A's there three straight times
from 1988-90. How many of the other
five can you name? Here they are: Joe
McCarthy (Yankees and Cubs), Yogi
I Berra (Yankees and Mets), Alvin Dark I
SGiants and A's), Sparky Anderson
(Reds and Tigers), and the only manag-I
I er to take tee teams to the Worid
Series, Dick Williams (Red Sox, A's and I
I Padres).

Okay NASCAR fans, can you name
the only racing track that remains on
the Nextel Cup schedule from
NASCAR's inaugural season in 1949?
The answer is Martinsville in rural
Virginia. Interestingly, Martinsville
came in first in a 2005 poll of drivers
asking them what is their least favorite
track. The .526-mile track, shaped like a
paper clip, is the shortest and slowest
on the circuit, and nearly one-fourth of
all drivers voted this Fenway Park of
motor sports their least favorite.

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.

'Wiregrass Country' celebrates Florida's pioneers


In 1885, before the official start
of the Second Seminole War, wide-
spread disorder and violence ran
rampant throughout the Florida
Territory. Marauding outlaws, rene-
gade Indians and family feuds
fueled fires of hostility and danger. Riding eastward, Treff pulled

calling them "their sons."
The rugged frontier of the Flori-

and his adopted family struggle to
keep Three Springs Ranch thriving
under threat of rustlers and rene-
gades. The Dovers moved to Flori-

stand the subtropical weather,
insects and wild animals to accu-
mulate a large herd of beef cattle.
But now the family is being further
tested as another Seminole War is
brewing and outlaws are on the
rise.
Since officers of the law are few
and far between in the new Florida
Territory, it's up to the Dovers to
protect themselves, their families,
their workers and their property.
The action never stops in this excit-
ing saga of one family's struggle to

Are you looking for the perfect tan?


It's time to start thinking about
that summer tan, isn't it? Time to
get out the bug spray, the tanning
lotion, the sun block and the aloe
for the bugs that get around the
bug spray. Who likes sand fleas or
mosquitoes, any way? It would be
so much easier to go to a tanning
salon. But the closest is in Ft. Myers
- who wants to pay for that high gas
just for a tan!
Well, now you don't have to,
LaBelle has its own SunTan Shack,
in the old Kennedy Plaza at 82 W.
Hickpoochee, across from Burger
Kings.
"I was driving to Ft. Myers to a
tanning salon over there and
thought it would be a great idea for
the LaBelle area," Kim Marroquin
said.
The SunTan Shack, Inc. is a fam-
ily owned and operated business
by Kim Marroquin and her sister-in-
law, Virginia Cantu. Kim, who also
owns Cool Connections here in
LaBelle, had recently sold a similar
business in Immokalee and was
looking for a new investment.
Kim and Virginia offer a clean
environment with computer con-
trolled tanning beds. "The comput-
er controls everything here," Kim
said. "If we do not clean the beds

and log it on the computer after a
client is done, the bed will not oper-
ate."
Kim, Virginia and the staff are all
state certified. This certification
tests the staff's knowledge of the
customer's needs and guarantees


that you will receive the ultimate in
customer service and great tanning
results.
"I can look at someone's skin
tone now and tell them exacting
what type of program they need,"
Kim said.


The SunTan Shack has seven
different beds in order to offer you
the ultimate in tanning results. They
have three regular beds, which you
can relax in for 20 minutes; two
Mega beds, 15 minutes only in
these; one turbo bed with a 10
minute time limit and a standup
bed with a 9 minute time limit. A
client can use the regular beds
every day but thebigger ones have
to be used every other day. They
also offer a wide range of tanning
products to help with your tanning
experience. If you're not sure
which product would be best for
you, they sell samples of each.
The SunTan Shack offers several
member packages. The ultimate is
the Life Time Membership, which
entitles you to one free turbo or
stand up session during your birth-
day month.
The SunTan Shack opened on
Monday, May 2,; and so far has 50
Life Members. Give Kim and Vir-
ginia a call and ask them about
their current specials.
The SunTan Shack is open Mon-
day through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8
p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m.
to 8 p.m. For more information you
can call Kim or Virginia at 863-675-

Nursing 'boot camp' starts this fall


Palm Beach Community Col-
lege is establishing a registered
nursing program at its location in
Belle Glade. "We have a 25 percent
vacancy rate for nurses," said Mary
Weeks, chief nursing officer for
Glades General Hospital in Belle
Glade. "We've offered incentives
like sign-on bonuses and recruited
nurses from as far away as the
Philippines, but the nurses often
don't stay. We're trying to keep an
experienced base, but there are too
many temptations out there."
The Glades Initiative Partnership
Council, the county Health Care
District, the Everglades Area Health
Education Centers from Nova
Southeastern University, Glades
General and Hendry hospitals, and
an "access committee" of citizens
first met three years ago, to estab-
lish the RN program at PBCC in
Belle Glade. The program is sched-
uled to begin in January 2006. The
deadline for students to apply to the
new RN program in Belle Glade is
October 1.
PBCC has converted the RN pro-
gram's prerequisite courses to
online classes to provide access to
rural students and upgraded the
laboratory from the practical nurs-
ing (PN) program that began in
2001 (and has graduated three
classes of practical nurses so far) to
a combination PN/RN lab. The col-
lege has installed videoconferenc-
ing equipment to. make it possible
for RN students to be connected to


'4
~-''*1


the nursing lecture classes at PBCC
in Lake Worth. This fall, the college
will offer a "boot camp" program
in Belle Glade to prepare students
for the rigors of the nursing pro-
gram.
The Health Care District of Palm
Beach County, which recently pur-
chased Glades General Hospital,


will provide funding for one nurs-
ing faculty position; Hendry Med-
ical Center will do the same and
both hospitals will be used as clini-
cal sites for the student nurses to
have hands-on experiences.
Hendry Medical Center in
Clewiston has provided nursing
scholarships for residents for the

Livestock imports are now restricted


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
has announced the placement of
restrictions oh the importation of
animals from states affected with
Vesicular Stomatitis following a
confirmed case in New Mexico,
the first such case reported in the
United States this year.
Vesicular Stomatitis is a highly
contagious, viral disease that


affects horses, cattle, swine and
occasionally sheep, goats and
deer. The virus can also cause flu-
like symptoms in people working
with infected animals. Symptoms
on animals include blister-like
lesions in the mouth, on the
tongue, lips, nostrils, hooves and
teats. While the virus doesn't usu-
ally kill the animals, it does result in
significant weight loss and milk
production loss. It is also difficult


to distinguish between this virus
and foot and mouth disease, a dev-
astating livestock disease found
outside the United States. States
and other countries often impose
movement restrictions on animals
from Vesicular Stomatitis affected
areas.
Last week, the USDA National
Veterinary Services Laboratories
confirmed the finding of two posi-
tive horses with clinical signs on a


cattle and horse ranch in Grant
County, New Mexico.
"I'm pleased to see that New
Mexico has taken immediate
action to hold animals on the
affected premises," Mr. Bronson
said, "but the possibility that this
disease could be in other areas
makes it imperative that we have
rules in place to prevent the dis-
ease from being imported into
Florida."

test Saturday April 30. Aspiring

while the judges determined win-
ners in the different age cate-
gories. Winners included: Joslyn
West (grades K-2); John Mitchell
and Tanya Reitz (grades 6-8);

Animated Windmill
Built primarily from fir plywood, this decorative
farm-style animated windmill responds to even light
breezes with four blades and a vane. For a touch of
whimsy, as the wind turns the blades it drives a
whirligig shaped like a merry old carpenter sawing a
log. The completed windmill stands nearly 7 feet tall
at the tip of the uppermost blade and measures about
20 inches wide at the base.
