16510 00019


By Patty Brant

Hendry County and the two
cities within its boundaries,
LaBelle and Clewiston, have long
agreed on the necessity of imple-
menting impact fees to pay for
development With a recent work-
shop meeting, they are getting
closer to agreeing on just how to
implement them, beginning with
road impact fees. These will be
levied on new development only,


both commercial and residential,
to help pay for the road improve-
ments necessary to accommodate
that growth.,
Representatives from each gov-
ernment gathered at Clewiston
City Hall May 17 to voice their con-
cerns and search for compromis-
es.
County Administrator Lester
Baird said Collier County's impact
fee structure is one model he is
looking at. It targets types of busi-


nesses that the county wishes to
attract and pays their impact fees
out of a specific fund. Tax incen-
tives could also be offered to spe-
cific businesses. This would be on
top of existing ad valorem tax
incentives.
Credit for gas taxes are already
built into the proposed road
impact fees; and large developers
who donate sites for schools could
earn credits on school impact fees.
Mr. Baird said he is working on

LBHS graduates 226 seniors

By Patty Brant
Now officially the largest
school in the county, LaBelle
High School" graduated 226
seniors at commencement
ceremonies Friday, May 20.
The Class of 2005 started its
school days with Hurricane
Andrew; its freshman year
began with the terrorism
attacks of Selptember 11. The
graduating seniors, faculty,
family members and well
wishers sat through a steady
drizzle as the class' final
assembly continued. The
weather did not dampen their
enthusiasm, however.
Salutatorian DoriAnn Dyess
exhorted her friends and class-
mates to "Remember those .
who made you what you are"
and characterized her class as
unique" and "individual," to a
roar of approval from her
class.
mused that the class was end- --
ing 13 years of learning to

a redraft of the ordinance to pres-
ent to the cities in July. The target
date for implementation of road
impact fees is October 1. The
county and both cities will have to
enter into interlocal agreements to
implement the impact fees.
LaBelle
From the City of LaBelle, Mayor
Sherri Craichy and Superintendent
of Public Works Michael Boyle
voiced their board's main con-


cerns. LaBelle would:
Prefer to start collecting road
impact fees at 50 percent of Dr.
Nichols' original suggested rate,
increasing to 75 percent after 500
new units are constructed;
Like to waive impact fees in
its historic downtown area;
Offer rebates to targeted busi-
nesses and tax incentives to specif-
ic businesses.

Teacher dies



in cycle crash


The faculty, staff and stu-
dents at LaBelle Middle School
have lost a beloved guidance
counselor, Maureen Sullivan,
as a result of a motorcycle
accident on Saturday, May 21.
The last two days of the school
year, Monday and Tuesday, a
special counselor was sta-
tioned at LMS to help students
deal with their grief.
In addition to her friends at
LMS, Ms. Sullivan, who drove
to LaBelle Middle School daily
from Punta Gorda, leaves
behind a husband, an 8th
grade daughter and a 6th
grade son both students in
Punta Gorda.
LMS is collecting donations
to open a savings account or
to purchase a certificate of
deposit for the Sullivan chil-
dren. If you choose to make a
donation, please direct it to
Susan Feickert at LaBelle Mid-
dle School.


Ms. Sullivan, 44, died at
Charlotte Regional Medical
Center after the crash. She had
been a passenger on a 2004
Suzuki motorcycle traveling
southbound on Golf Course
Blvd. near Henry Street in
Punta Gorda.
Her husband, Thomas
Rogers, 53, was driving the
motorcycle. He, suffered
minor injuries and was in sta-
ble condition at Charlotte
Regional Medical Center.
Reports indicate that the
motorcycle started to lean and
the driver moved to left. The
bike began to rotate, veering
into the oncoming lane of traf-
fic and Ms. Sullivan was eject-
ed. '
She was transported to the
hospital where she was pr6-
nounced dead.

LaBelle Cowgirls:


It was a great ride!


By Lori Langford
For Janna Taylor and Paige
Raulerson the two seniors of the
Cowgirl softball team, the hopes
of a high school state champi-
onship came to an end Friday
afternoon at the Ed Raddice
Sports Complex in Tampa. For
the other 13 that made the trip,
the thoughts of "next year" will
remain in their minds for the
next eight months.
In the state semifinal game
the Cowgirls lost 2-0 to the High-
landers of Lake Highland Prep.
The Cowgirls gave up 2 runs
early and were unable to recov-
er after being held scoreless
after 7 innings. Offensively, the
Cowgirls had 5 hits including 2
by freshman third baseman
Vanessa Ostolaza and a double
from pitcher Amanda Atun. The
other hits came from seniors'
second baseman Paige Rauler-


son and first baseman Janna
Taylor. The Highlanders scored
one of their runs in the 2nd
inning off of a leadoff homerun
that made its way over the 200-
foot centerfield fence. In the 4th
inning, the Highlanders hit a sac-
rifice fly to left field to score the
second run.
After the pain of the loss has
weakened, the 15 Cowgirls that
made the trip Friday to the state
championships will look back
on their season and realize their
accomplishments. Brittany and
Tiffany Roberts will remember
their hard work at therapy to
recover from their softball
injuries. After only their second
year playing softball, Tiffany Ter-
rell and Shayla Wilson, and her
first year Lacey McCall, will real-
ize how much they have

- he issued this challenge to his

Fee
Continued From Page 1
LaBelle also has a concern that
several categories are higher than
Fort Myers, even though those cus-
tomers are not here yet.
Mayor Craichy noted that there
are no rental units available in
LaBelle at this time. The Royal fam-
ily's shopping center (Save A Lot) is
now full for the first time in 20
years. The city fears that, if impact
fees are set too high, empty units
will be the result. She also said that
most impact fees suggested are fair,
but some are "astronomical."
Mayor Craichy said they need an
exempt district to save 25-30 acres
around the Courthouse. She wants
to revitalize downtown into a walk-
ing district and fears that the
upcoming Wal-Mart construction
will wreak havoc on local business-


that we will be able to fully fund
our 26 partner agencies and want
to thank all of the generous individ-
uals and companies who support-
ed the campaign."
The funds raised during the
United Way Campaign will support
the work of 26 agencies that help
friends, neighbors and co-workers
right here in this community.
Agencies like Senior Connections,
Salvation Army, Good Wheels,
Hendry Glades Mental Health Clin-
ic, Healthy Families and Hendry
Healthy Kids serve a diverse range
of needs in the community such as


es. LaBelle also wants to keep
money raised in its district, while
Clewiston and the county do same.
Clewiston
Clewiston Mayor Mali Cham-
ness agreed that the impact fees
should begin at the 50 percent
level, then go up to 75 percent at a
specific trigger, such as the addition
of 500 new units.
Like LaBelle, Clewiston also
would like to exempt certain areas
including its-Redevelopment Area
and southeast section. With empty
commercial property, the City of
Clewiston is in a different situation
from LaBelle. Areas like the old air-
port could be utilized for a 175-acre
commercial park.
County Commissioner and
Clewiston Utilities Director Kevin
McCarthy warned that the county
as a whole is losing money as long
as it delays implementing impact


nurturing youth and children,
strengthening families, improving
health and independence for the
sick and elderly, helping the dis-
abled reach their potential and
reaching people in crisis.
Last year the 26 United Way
Agencies helped over 19,000 peo-
ple in the community. All of the
money donated to United Way
stays in Hendry and Glades and
helps people right here in the two
.counties.

fees. The alternative would be to
increase ad valorem taxes, which
would penalize existing residents
for growth, he said.
Both cities fear that, if the sug-
gested impact fees are implement-
ed at 100 percent, business will be
stifled. Knowing the county could
never recoup money lost at the 50
percent level, they feel the growth
attracted would be a good trade-
off.,
' Mr. Baird said he must contact
Dr. James Nichols, the UF professor
who did the impact fee study for
the county, to see whether or not
certain areas may be exempt from
impact fees.
. Commissioner Darrell Harris
said he surveyed several counties -
all indicated that they waited too
long to impose impact fees and
that those fees did not affect growth
or employment.

mending approximately $5,000 in

improved since February-enough
to make the roster of a 3A Final
Four contender. Freshman Vanes-
sa Ostolaza will remember going
2 for 2 in the state semifinal game.
Alexa Redish will think about her
clutch hits that helped win several
ball games this year. Sophomore
Heather Raulerson will be proud
of the 35 runs she batted in as
well as her first season as catcher.
Dani Blake-the double she hit in
the regional final and the run she
scored to win and help send the
team to state. Junior Kaci Ringler
will remember her first diving
catch. Cori Ankney-the 27 runs
she scored and her many putouts
from centerfield. Amanda Atun-
the 173 innings she pitched, and
her big hits that led to game win-
ning RBI's throughout the post-
season. As for the seniors, they
will undoubtedly remember their
senior season, the best for a Cow-
girl softball team since going fast
pitch 10 years ago. Janna Taylor
will remember the numerous
balls she scooped out of the dirt at
first base and her last high school
at bat which resulted in a hit in the
semifinal game. Paige Raulerson
will remember the 29 runs she
scored along with the two she
scored in the 11llth inning game
against Pope John Paul High
School. She'll also remember her
last hit of her high school career,
which also came in her last at bat
at state.
As for the coaches, we'll
remember the fight these girls
had. Throughout the entire sea-
son we had come-from-behind
victories. Every batter, one though
nine had at least one game where
their hit helped give us another
win. We'll remember the 25 wins.
Unfortunately we'll also remem-
ber the 6 losses.
What we'll remember the
most is the sixth loss. The one that
came from Lake Highland Prep-
who went on to lose 1-0 in nine
innings in the championship
game to American Heritage.
Knowing how close we were to
being LaBelle's first state champi-
ons in softball will push the team
to return to Tampa next year and
return as state champions.


impact fees per new home.
Mr. McCarthy said that, with
12,000-13,000 homes in the county
now, adding 6,000 in the next five
years is a huge number that will
drastically change the face of this
community. The longer we delay
impact fees, he said, the deeper in
the hole we get. In fact, he is in
favor of implementing 100 percent
of the impact fee scale, saying the
county would penalize all residents
and businesses by keeping ad val-
orem taxes high by not imposing
impact fees.
He said that the Department of
.Community Affairs (DCA) wants
the county and cities to work
together. He said the impact fee
ordinance should be passed it can
be adjusted later as needed to
establish a program where all will
benefit. He reasoned that it will be
"fratricide" if the cities, county fight
each other.

Drew, his wife, Tracy, and son,
Liam. Drew is a former Hendry
County Sheriff's Office Sergeant
and was one of Deputy Haas'
instructors at the Southwest
Florida Criminal Justice Acade-
my. Grant Davis, a former
Hendry County Deputy and
coworker of Deputy Haas, also
attended the services in Wash-
ington, D.C. President George
Bush, a big supporter of law
enforcement officers, was the


keynote speaker at the service
held on the West Lawn of the
U.S. Capitol. The President spent
a great deal of time shaking
hands and speaking personally
with the survivors who had lost
an officer in 2004. A Medal of
Valor was presented to the Haas
family during the "Roll Call of
Heroes of 2004."
Deputy Brian Haas' name was
added to the more then 16,500
names already inscribed on the
marble walls of Judiciary Square.
The first known line of duty
death was in 1792, and on aver-
age, one law enforcement officer
is killed somewhere in America
nearly every other day. Engraved
on the memorial is the quote, "It
is not how these officers died
that made them heroes, it is how
they lived." Reflecting on the life
led by Deputy Brian A. Haas, his
family, friends and coworkers
agree.

:Game Commission Arrests


Members of the Florida
-Wildlife Commission Division of
'Law Enforcement handled
some significant events recent-
ly. The following is a synopsis of
those in Glades and Hendry
counties.

Hendry County
Saturday, May 14, Investiga-
tor Larry Ayers watched as the
passenger of a van extended a
rifle out of the window and shot
at a bird on a power pole along
County Road 833 in Devil's Gar-
den. After stopping the van, the
occupants explained they were
going to have a cookout and
needed a main course. The
shooter was charged with
shooting from a public road-
way.
Saturday, May 14, around
10:30 p.m., Investigator Ayers
watched as a vehicle
approached County Road 833
from Hill Grade. As the vehicle
reached the intersection, it was
obvious that it was behind a
locked gate. Investigator Ayers
and Alico Ranch security
stopped the vehicle and noticed
blood on the clothing of all
three men. A freshly killed hog
was seen inside the van along
with a shotgun. One of the men
was observed trying to hide an
Alico gate key. It was discovered
that he had been fired from
Alico nine months ago and had
not returned the key.
The three men were arrested
and jailed for trespassing with a
firearm and the shotgun was
seized as evidence. FWC Offi-
cers Eddie Brown and J.W. Arm-
strong assisted with the inci-
dent.
Sunday, May 15, Officers
%Lance York and Jesse Lee were
"on patrol, on state mitigation

"ty. As they stopped to open a
-gate, they heard a nearby gun

"the direction of the shot and
Observed a man with a rifle,
*running into a nursery. Officer
uLee remained stationary at a
vantage point while Officer York
{.slowly trailed the ,man into the


nursery. The man was ultimate-
ly found crawling on his hands
and knees, trying to hide. The
officers then backtracked to
where the man had fired his
weapon and found a freshly
killed doe deer. The subject
then showed the officers where
he had hidden the .22-magnum
rifle. Citations were issued.
Tuesday, May 17, Investiga-
tors Larry Ayers and Chris Har-
ris, along with Officers Lance
York, Jesse Lee, Avery Tubbs
(and K-9, Jack), Eddie Brown
and Lieutenant Travis Franklin
responded to a trespass com-
plaint on private property off of
SR 80, east of LaBelle. Two men
had been observed being
dropped off by a vehicle and
had walked into the woods with
guns. Officer Tubbs and K-9
Jack tracked the men into the
woods. The other officers set up
a perimeter. After several hours


of hearing at least a dozen gun-
shots, they observed the same
vehicle return. The three men
were confronted and found to
be in possession of one bearded
turkey, two hogs, and two .22-
magnum rifles. The turkey,
hogs, guns and vehicle, a 1997
Ford Expedition, were seized as
evidence.

Glades County
Wednesday, Officer John
Wilke observed two fishermen
in Fisheating Creek. Officer
Wilke waited for them at the
boat ramp. Upon the fisher-
men's arrival, Officer Wilke
conducted a boating safety
check and fisheries inspection.
The two men, both from South
Carolina, stated they had come
down to fish for a couple days.
When Officer Wilke asked to
see the fish they had caught, the
two men had 285 pan fish in

Both men were cited for over-
the-limit possession of pan fish.
Thursday, May 12, Officer
Kevin Losee inspected two fish-
ermen's catch at the Harney
Pond canal. Officer Losee then
discovered that more fish were
back at their camp. The fisher-
men claimed to have had some
of the previous day's catch in
their possession. However, one
man was cited for over-the-
daily-bag limit (62 bream) and
the other was cited for over-the-
possession limit (134 bream)
and for an illegal size bass. The
fish were seized and donated to
a charitable institution.

IN LOVING MEMORY
Dear Darrell,
You are gone from our midst, but never from our
hearts. It has been 21 years from this date. Seems
like yesterday and forever.
You put a lot of living, loving and memories in
the short 26 years you were with us. We had our
ups and downs, good and bad, but this is to be
expected in life. The laughs, the fun, the good
times always out weighed the bad.
I This day will always be a sad one filled with pain
and sorrow. From this time on we will never see you, hear your
voice or laugh, or touch you again. From now on we will remem-
ber you in pictures and our memories. You will be in our hearts
forever.
Darrell, you have been loved and missed so much by everyone.
Some still visit with you, leave flowers, or write you little notes at
your grave. The memory of you in your brown cowboy hat driving
that big 4-wheel drive truck is very sharp. You'have left a void in
our life, but you will always live in our hearts. If God is willing one
day we will see you and laugh with you again.
We will love forever and a day.
From All Who Love You

Guest Commentary



I am drinking from my saucer


In my last article I asked the
question, "What would Jesus
do"?
Since He works in such mysti-
cal ways, is it any wonder that I
got the following response from
an apparently positive' minded
believer?

I've never made a fortune, and
it's probably too late now.
But I don't worry about that
much, I'm happy anyhow.
And so I go along life's way,
.as I'm reaping better than I
sowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'cause my cup has overflowed.

Haven't got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going's
tough.


Its your worl


Get Involved


But I've got loved ones all
around me,
and that makes me rich
enough.
I thank God for his blessings,
and the mercies He's bestowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things
went wrong,
and my faith wore somewhat
thin.
But all at once the dark clouds


broke,
and the sun peeped through
again.
So, Lord, help me not to gripe,
about the tough rows I have
hoed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
"cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and
courage,
when the way grows steep and
rough.
I'll not ask for other blessings,


I'm already blessed enough.
And when I think of how many
other people have it worse,
may I never be too busy to light,
en their loads.
Then I'll keep drinking from my
saucer,
'cause my cup has truly over-
flowed.
Now how do we take these
truly inspirational phrases from the
abstract to a truly practical applica-
tion and use? It occurs to me that
elected men and women, of good;
faith and good will, can and must
start "drinking from their saucers".
as all of "their," as well as "our"'.
cups will surely be overflowing!

A true story: looks can be deceiving


A lady in a faded gingham dress
and her husband, dressed in a
homespun threadbare suit,
stepped off the train in Boston, and
walked timidly without an appoint-
ment into the Harvard University
President's outer office.
The secretary could. tell in a-
moment that such backwoods,
country hicks had no business at
Harvard and probably didn't even
deserve to be in Cambridge.
"We'd like to see the president,"
the man said softly.
"He'll be busy all day," the sec-
retary snapped.
"We'll wait," the lady replied.
For hours the secretary ignored
them, hoping that the couple
would finally become discouraged
and go away. They didn't, and the
secretary grew frustrated and final-
ly decided to disturb the president,
even though it was a chore she
always dreaded.
"Maybe if you see them for a

few minutes, they'll leave," she said
to him.
He sighed in exasperation and
nodded. Someone of his impor-
tance obviously didn't have the
time to spend with them, and he
detested gingham dresses and
homespun suits cluttering up his
outer office. The president, stern
faced and with dignity, strutted
toward the couple.
The lady told him, "We had a
son who attended Harvard for one
year. He loved Harvard. He was
happy here. But about a year ago,
he was accidentally killed. My hus-
band and I would like to erect a
memorial to him, somewhere on


The Witch's Brew


By Pudge Lehman

I've just read the 1000th
swimsuit edition that states,'
"Suits that make every body
took good!" Get real, people!
How come every one I try on
looks like 400 pounds of pota-
toes in a 100-pound sack? Per-
sonally, I think we should go
back to the full body suit of the
olden days. The kind that had
long sleeves and came down
past the knees.
It is a good idea to coat your
outside water valve threads with
Vaseline once in a while. A stuck
valve is not humorous in an
emergency.

When installing a light fixture
or fan be sure to put the light
switch in the off position and
put tape over it. There is nothing
quite like being on top of a lad-
der working on some electrical
wires and have someone acci-
dentally flip the switch on. This
could be an electrifying experi-
ence.

campus."
The president was not touched,
he was shocked. "Madam," he
said, gruffly, "we can't put up a stat-
ue for every person who attended
Harvard and died. If we did, this
place would look like a cemetery."
Oh, no," the lady explained
quickly. "We don't want to erect a
statue.
.We thought we would like to
give a building to Harvard."
The president rolled his eyes. He
glanced at the gingham dress and
homespun suit, then exclaimed, "A
building! Do you have any earthly
idea how much a building costs?
We have over seven and a half mil-


lion dollars in the physical buildings,
here at Harvard."
For a moment the lady was'
silent. The president was pleased.'
Maybe he could get rid of then
now.
The lady turned to her husband'
and said quietly, "Is that all it cost to
start a university? Why don't we
just start our own?"
Her husband nodded. The pres-,
ident's face wilted in confusion and
bewilderment. Mr. and Mrs. Leland;
Stanford got up and walked away,
traveling to Palo Alto, California;
where they established the univer-
sity that bears their name, Stanford
University, a memorial to a son that
Harvard no longer cared about.
You can easily judge the charac-
ter of others by how they treat
those who they think can do noth-'
ing for them.

BUYING OR SELLING JITTERS
You want to sell your house
and you are fortunate because
buyers have made you an offer that
you couldn't refuse. Once the ink
dried on the contract forms, how-
ever, it seemed like everything
threatened to come unraveled.
Once the buyers' earnest
money check cleared their
account, they came up with a list
of concerns that never occurred to
their structural expert. Their fears
and demands caused you to see
them more as an adversary rather
than the sweet young couple who
want to start a family in your
house. How could the atmosphere
have changed so quickly?
You should know that
buyers and sellers are both suscep-
tible to different forms of "tempo-
rary insanity"--"Buyers' Remorse'
and "Sellers' Remorse'.
Fortunately neither one of these
conditions is contagious to
Realtors. Assuming all parties
negotiated the original contract to
everyone's satisfaction, your
Realtor should be able to help take
the emotion out of the deal and
settle the transaction in accor-
dance with the terms of the con-
tract. An important part of our job
is to help our sellers and buyers
through their buying or selling jit-
ters with understanding and
humor.

SPORTS FANS I
-I
I BET
YOU
DIDN'T
KNOW
I Brought to you by
Lori Langford
Have you ever heard about the hitter
who blasted a home run out of one state
and into another? Technically, that's
what Reds outfielder Adam Dunn did in
2004. Dunn hammered a shot to center
off Dodger pitcher Jose Lima that
cleared three fences at Cincinnati's
Great America Ball Park, landed on the
sidewalk and bounced a few hundred
feet niore before plopping into the Ohio I
River which is technically part of I
Kentucky. By the way, in 2004 Dunn I
became the first player in National I
Leaguer history to drive in at least 100 1
runs without hitting a sacrifice fly.
Rick Ankiel is the latest in a short list
of players who have. tried to convert.
from pitchers to hitters during their
careers. USA Today's high school play-
er of the year in 1997 and a rookie sensa-
tion for St. Louis in 2000, Ankiel suf-
fered a control meltdown in the playoffs
that year and never regained his com-
mand. With the notable exception of
Babe Ruth, not many have succeeded in
switching from the mound to the field.
But few fans know that another
Cardinal legend, Stan 'the Man' Musial,
won 18 games in the minors before a
shoulder injury in 1940 forced him off
the mound and into a Hall-of-Fame
career in the outfield.
Imagine nailing an eagle on the 18th
hole, but still finishing your round with
a score of 12,170! It happened to Andre
Tolme in August of 2004, but that's
because Tolme's course was the entire
country of Mongolia, where each hole
was almost 200,000 yards long. The 35-
year-old civil engineer from Newr,
Hampshire used a Jeep, a tent, a 3-iron
and a native caddie named
Khatanbaatar to complete the course in
less than nine months. His purpose was
to raise awareness for the new sport of
extreme golf.
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.

event as favorite son Bernard Cul-
liver sang the national anthem.
Another favorite son, Ural Darling,
who returns every year to provide
music for the event, sang Amazing
Grace in honor of our servicemen
and women sacrificing every day
for this country.
A number of officials attended
the day, including Mayor Sherri
Craichy, EMS Director and mayoral
candidate Randy Bengston, City
Commissioner Helen Zimmerly,
Superintendent of Schools Tom
Conner, Sheriff Ronnie Lee, repre-
sentative of the Democratic Execu-
tive Committee Dorothy Johnson.
The event also marked the offi-
cial dedication of the park as the


Alton "Kid" Jones Park. A tearful
Mayor Craichy read the city's
proclamation, which she then pre-
sented to "Kid's" daughter, Bessie
Jones. Mr. Jones lived most of his
life and raised his family in LaBelle,
giving to the community even into
his 80s. Even then he was using his
skills in concrete work to improve
city hall in 1990 and in 1992 putting
in sidewalks around Barron Park
sidewalk. In 2001, at the age of 98,
he assisted with the oral history of


LaBelle. Mr. Jones "loved life,"
Mayor Craichy noted, and was a
role model of perseverance in
hardship.
Tom Conner presented certifi-
cates to all the graduates from
the F/S Park neighborhood.
Organizers also named a Man
of the Year. Richard "Rico"
Williams received the honor in
recognition of the "little" things
he does for the community, such
as assisting with early morning

Health fair focuses on women LawofficesofRobertL


By Donna-Meister
The annual Women's Health
Fair held at the Hendry County
Health Department this past
Thursday was another great suc-
cess.
The hours for the event were
4 until 7 p.m., however anxious
ladies starting lining up at the
door at 3 p.m. Everyone was
invited to have blood screenings
done for cholesterol and hemo-
globin. Of course blood pres-
sures, weight, body mass index,
calorie needs, target heart rate
and waist to hip ratios were also
taken.
Anything you ever wanted to
know about eye health, birth
control, Parkinson's Disease and
American Cancer Society infor-
mation, car seat safety, Curves
Center for Women, HIV/STD
information and free testing
were available with plenty of
vital information and free hand-
outs. Hope Hospice, Health
Florida, Healthy Families, United
Way, Social Security, Senior Con-
nections, RCMA, Hendry Sher-
iff's Office, Lake Okeechobee
Rural Health Network (LORHN),
Healthy Start, WIC and Opening
Doors were all on hand to offer
information and services avail-
able in the area. Breast and bone
health information was plentiful.
Even hurricane preparedness
information was on hand.
Healthy snacks such as raw
fruits, vegetables, tostito chips,
dip and bottled water were
offered to everyone making it to
the end of the fair route.
Did you know that drinking
one soda a day adds an extra 35
pounds of sugar to your diet?
Which may lead to a weight gain
of 15 pounds in a year. A one 12-
ounce can of soda contains ten
teaspoons of sugar and 150 calo-
ries. Studies show that drinking
too much soda can cause tooth
decay and can also lead to heart
disease and diabetes. What we
don't know CAN hurt us! Preven-
tion is the name of the game and
preserving good health is the
goal of all the health care and
safety professionals who gave
their time to inform Hendry
County women who showed up
at the 2005 Women's Health FairF
were all winners.

Special tribute
Representing the American Legion Riders, Bill Davis, left,
presented LaBelle Fire Chief Dwayne Pratt with a special
flag recently. The Flag of Heroes was created by John
Michelotti of Connecticut and lists the names of each emer-
gency worker who gave their life in the September 11 ter-
rorist attacks. The names are printed in white on each of
the flag's red stripes. The goal is to have a Flag of Heroes
in every building in America, as a national tribute. Mr. Davis
purchased the flag in Sarasota at the Vietnam Memorial
Moving Wall last month to present to LaBelle firefighters.
Chief Pratt said he will display the flag in a case at the fire-
house. The. occasion of the presentation was the American
Legion's Peace Officers Memorial Day at the Legion Hall on
May 18. This was the third year the Legion put on a special
dinner honoring local law enforcement, firefighters and
EMS personnel. Mr. Michelotti also produces a Flag of
Honor, commemorating all the victims of September 11.

The Glades: Closest thing to paradise on earth


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Paradise is where you find it.
Well, this paradise these 480
green acres are located in perhaps
the poorest county in the state of
Florida. Yet it must be stated quick-
ly that while she is low on the
totem pole where dollars are con-
cerned, Glades County is resplen-
dently clothed with beautiful land-
scapes that are unsurpassed. And
this natural gem, previously known
as Hendry Isles Resort, has been
appropriately renamed The 9
Glades, and is a perfect retreat for
those who cherish the natural
beauty of this southern part of the
Sunshine State.
Glades County is awash with
untold natural wonders and riches
from border to border and this
refuge for man and animals is a
prime example. Hidden just out of The G

prefer to sit inside where
n watch the pros on satellite

amateur golfers. And if you've
never tasted a true-to-life Angus
burger you've missed the treat of a
new year. Those served at The Grill
are a real favorite and worth the
drive (no pun intended).
A welcome refuge for boats
from both coasts during last sum-
mer's storm season, the deepwa-
ter marina at The Glades offers
short or long term docking, a pri-
vate boat launch for guests and res-
idents and direct access to the
Caloosahatchee. It will accommo-
date crafts up to about 60-feet.
Whether one prefers lots of
peace and quiet or a more social


lifestyle, The Glades has it. The
beautiful riverside restaurant was
converted into a clubhouse by the
new owner, Jon Loftis. A natural
amenity is the big river, where the
serenity is usually interrupted only
by a surprised turtle, waterfowl or
gator.
This is resort living at its best.
'The RV sites are spacious and full
hookups ensure that' generators
will not drown out the calls of the
resident cranes. Indeed, Snow
Birds live peacefully with the many
other species of birds that reside at
The Glades each winter. And for
those who love camping but do
not care for the hassle of packing,
fully furnished cabins offer a great
way to get away. No matter what
the accommodations, every guest
or resident is welcome to use the
park's amenities, including nearby
laundry areas, comfort station,
heated swimming pool, fitness
room, shuffleboard courts and
horseshoe pits. The private roads
are perfect for a leisurely stroll or
bicycle ride. Some residents even
choose to get around on their pri-
vate golf carts. Even with all such
activities, there is a pastoral quality
about The Glades that inspires
complete relaxation and harmony
with creation.
It will come as no surprise that a
man who has written and taught
about creation would invest his
own money to preserve this~spe-
cial place. Jon Loftis has high
hopes that the resort he has reno-
vated will become a community of


residents who encourage and
respect Christian values. Once it
begins to make a profit, he intends
to gift the resort to his foundation,
which has planted churches
throughout the United States, pro-
vided scholarships for seminary
students here in the U.S. and
helped establish a seminary in Rus-
sia. One hundred percent of the


profits will be used to fund min-
istries and missions worldwide,
through existing church organiza-
tions. By simply paying their site
rent, people will be contributing 1o
worthy causes. I
For Jon Loftis, it's all about the
Kingdom, which, he says, "Is like
The Glades... the closest thing to
paradise on Earth."

County Court House on June 11,
1985. She worked her last day on
May 20, 2005 a couple weeks
short of 20 years.
As the resident expert on the
Subject of child support, she got
all the calls and answered all the
questions one might have about
child support. At one time she
even made the payment disburse-
ments. Previous to the Clerk's
Office, Vernice worked for the
Hendry County School Board for
eight years. She worked in pay-
roll, personnel, transportation
and federal projects.
Clerk of Court Barbara Butler
remarked that Vernice will be
surely missed. "She always came
to work early and she always had
a smile for everyone," Ms. Butler
said.
Vernice graduated from Alva
High School in 1958, living her
-entire life in this area. When
asked what she will do during her
retirement Vernice replied,

First timer
Tom McColough, a first-time
blood donor, finds the
process quick and simple.
Tom has lived in LaBelle for
ten years and said that donat-
ing blood not only helps oth-
ers, it is actually very healthy
for the donor cleansing the
blood of excess iron. This
time around, 48 LaBelle resi-
dents came out to participate,
resulting in 41 units of blood
for those in need. William
Hamilton won the $50 Tup-
perware gift certificate and
Lucinda Johnson won the
$20 in Kiwanis Store Bucks.
Lunch was provided by the
VFW Post 10100 Auxiliary.

Independent Newspapers will
never accept any advertise-

Low carb potato gives consumers a different option


By Chuck Woods
University of Florida
Following the January debut
of the first low-carb potato that's
now a popular item in super-
markets, University of Florida
researchers say a larger and tasti-
er version of the spud will be
available to consumers in May of
this year.
Like the original low-carb
potato, the new variety will have
30 percent fewer carbohydrates
and 25 percent fewer calories
than a standard Russet Burbank
potato. The. main difference is
that the new tubers will have yel-
low flesh instead of white flesh,
said Chad Hutchinson, an assis-
tant professor of horticulture
with UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences. The yel-
low flesh gives the potato a
slightly sweeter flavor.
He said 3.5 ounces of each
potato contain about 13 grams
of carbohydrate compared to
around 19 grams in the same
serving, size of a Russet baking
potato.


"The addition of a new, larger
potato with a different taste will
give consumers more choices,"
he said. "Our first'low-carb pota-
to, which is now being marketed
as SunLite, has a white flesh and
weighs anywhere from 4 to 6
ounces. The new spud, to be mar-
keted as SunLite Gold, weighs
anywhere from 6 to 10 ounces."
Hutchinson said another
major advantage for both low-
carb spuds is that they are har-
vested and marketed as fresh,
gourmet potatoes unlike other
potatoes that are stored up to 10
months before they reach the
consumer.
"When we announced the
first low-carb potato in June
2004, some people in the potato
industry were concerned that
our new variety would steal mar-
ket share from traditional
brands, but we're trying to
expand the overall market by
bringing people that have con-
cerns over diet back to pota-
toes," he said.
"I like to consider these as


'health-enhanced' varieties,"
Hutchinson said. "By making a
simple change, everyone can
take advantage of the health
benefits of these potatoes with-
out making any sacrifices in taste
or cooking quality."
While some people say con-
sumer interest in low-carb foods
may be waning, Hutchinson said
potatoes can be part of a healthy
diet. They contain no fat or cho-
lesterol, and they are good
sources of fiber, protein and vita-
mins. They also contain vitamins
C and B-6, and they are low in
sodium and high in potassium.
And, potato skins are an excel-
lent source of fiber.
-He said both low-carb pota-
toes have been thoroughly test-
ed in UF research plots near
Hastings, Fla., for the past five
years, and the spud's low-carbo-
hydrate profile has been con-
firmed by research in Canada.
UF is the first test site in the Unit-
ed States for the European pota-
to imports, which were devel-
oped by HZPC, a seed company


based in the Netherlands.
"The low-carb profile is due
in part to lower specific gravity in
the potatoes, which relates to
the amount of starch in the
tuber, compared to the more
widely recognized Russet pota-
to," Hutchinson said. "The
smooth, buff-colored skins on
both low-carb potatoes make
them an attractive alternative in
many traditional potato recipes."
To meet consumer demand
for the new potatoes, which are
now being grown on more than
2,500 acres in. Florida, growers
formed the SunFresh of Florida
Marketing Cooperative Inc. -"
Wayne Smith, president of the
cooperative in St. Augustine,
said the goal is to grow low-carb
potatoes in Florida, North Caroli-
na and elsewhere so that con-
sumers can have a year-round
supply of fresh potatoes that
have not been stored for long
periods. So far, the main market
for limited production has been
in Florida and the east coast of
-the United States.


Smith said the new low-carb
potatoes are driving a renais-
- sance in the potato industry of
northeast Florida. By next year,
production of low-carb potatoes
is expected to double.
Both SunLite and SunLite
Gold are being marketed in a
European-style package devel-
oped by Hank Whetstone, oper-
ations manager for the market-
ing cooperative. The plastic
package, which includes high
quality graphics, has a net that
allows consumers to see the
potatoes inside.
"Given a chance, the combi-
nation of taste, appearance and
packaging will rejuvenate the
potato segment in supermar-
kets," Whetstone said. "It's a
jewel on the shelf."
Don Northcott, marketing
manager for HZPC Americas
Corp. on Prince Edward Island,
Canada, said the new varieties
grow in a short period of time.
The potatoes can be harvested
in 65 to 75 days compared to
more than 100 days for existing


potato varieties grown in Florida.i
The shorter growing period will
allow spring and fall crops to be
produced for harvesting from
January through June.
"These new varieties.have a
good tolerance to environmental
stresses such as high tempera-
tures or dry weather. In fact,
under warm-weather condi-
tions, these varieties develop an
extremely attractive appearance
in terms of brightness of skin,
and smooth appearance,"
Northcott said.
He said the potato skins
develop early, which enhances
resistance to mechanical dam-
age so the potatoes arrive on
store shelves with minimal
defects. The variety has some
resistance to tuber greening,
which increases store shelf life.
"The combination of good
Florida soils, warm tempera-
tures and experienced Florida
growers is ideal for giving con-
sumers in the United States and
Canada a fresh flavor treat," he
said.
