By Patty Brant
State Attorney Steve Russell
has announced that the Hendry
County Grand Jury has cleared
six Hendry County Sheriff's
deputies in the Sept. 22, 2004
shooting of Deana K. Hall after a
traffic pursuit in LaBelle.
Ms. Hall survived her gunshot
wounds.


The Grand Jury issued a
report on May 31, which sets
forth its factual findings in the
case and the conclusion that the
actions of the deputies were
legally justified. The report had
been sealed under Florida law
until the Grand Jury's findings
were released on June 3. State
Attorney Steve Russell thanked
the Grand Jury for their diligent


and lengthy review of the facts.
"We believe through this
process this matter has been
thoroughly reviewed,i Mr. Russell
said.
The Grand Jury also issued an
eight-count indictment charging
Ms. Hall, 28, which includes:
Three counts of aggravated
assault on a law enforcement
officer and one count each of

aggravated fleeing to elude,
resisting an officer with violence,
leaving the scene of a crash, DUI
causing property damage and
driving while license suspended.
Ms. Hall was taken into custody
by the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement (FDLE), which
investigated'the case. Ms. Hall is
being held at the Hendry County
Jail without bond pending


Voters in the City of LaBelle
had a surprise when qualifying
week for the city election was
over last Friday. Richard
Williams, who had previously
announced that he would seek
the mayor's seat then bowed
out, threw his hat in the ring for
the Tax Assessor Commission-
er seat. That position is cur-
rently held by Bob Miller. Mr.
Miller is also running for reelec-
tion. Mr. Williams has not pre-
viously held political office.
In the mayor's race, another
newcomer to the political
arena, Randy Bengston, is chal-
lenging incumbent Sherri
Craichy .for the seat she has
held for 12 years.

With their duct tape creations, seniors DoriAnn Dyess and Cy Clayton were a big hit at
the 2005 LHS Prom. They even were named King and Queen of the prom.

Please help the 'duct tape' kids


Duct tape is known for its
endless uses, but have you ever
heard of wearing it? In search-
ing for ways to help out with
college tuition, DoriAnn Dyess
and Cy Clayton, LaBelle High
School 2005 seniors, came
across the "Stuck At Prom"
scholarship, sponsored by the
Duck Tape Brand. After a little
convincing Debbie Woodford,
Dori's mother, decided to take
on the challenge of making the
prom attires. The next step was
deciding on colors. Did you
know the Duck Tape Brand
offers tape in nineteen different
colors? They chose white duct
tape for Cy's tuxedo trimmed
in Dori's funky flamingo pink,
lime green, blaze orange and
atomic yellow. Cy wove the flo-
rescent colors for his cummer-


bund and top hat. Dori added a
little touch by piecing together
the duck logo for Duck Tape
Brand on the center of his hat.
When it came to DoriAnn's
dress, the actual inspiration
came from Barbie. Dori's
mom cut out material forming
the dress and then covered it
with funky flamingo pink duct
tape. Dori's bodice was made
of the woven tape to match
Cy's cummerbund. Sheer
material was added to the skirt
of the dress in order to add ele-
gance. Everything down to the
jewelry and corsage was
made of duct tape.
The outfits turned out to be
less expensive than the average
prom attire costs but where
definitely more time consum-
ing. It took Debbie, Dori and Cy


about a month's worth of
evenings to complete the appar-
el.
Dori and Cy have entered
the contest. In June an awards
committee will determine the
winner of the $5,000 scholar-
ship. An additional $500 "Top
of the Tape" award will be
given, and that's where your
vote can help the couple. Dur-
ing the dates of June 17-26 indi-
viduals can visit the website,
www.ducktapeclub.com (con-
test link, then click stuck at
prom),, to vote. Their entry
number is 3356. One vote per
e-mail address is allowed.
In the fall DoriAnn will be
attending Wesleyan College in
Macon, Georgia, and Cy will be
attending The Citadel in
Charleston, South Carolina.


Hendry County's Emer-
gency Medical Service (EMS)
has been under the direction
of Randy Bengston since Sep-
tember 1985. Now Mr.
Bengston has decided to add a
new dimension to his career.
He is running for mayor of the
City of LaBelle against the
longtime holder of that office,
Sherri Craichy.
With a strong background
in Emergency Medical Ser-
vices Mr. Bengston feels he has
a solid base for guiding the
City of LaBelle through the
coming growth. He points to
experience in management
skills he feels would serve him
well as mayor: fiscal and per-


arraignment scheduled for July
11.
The following information
about the incident is taken from
the Grand Jury's statement of
findings.

Hall stem from a Sept. 22, 2004,

By Patty Brant
With Hurricane Season 2005
upon us, Hendry County joins
the entire state of Florida in
watching the skies and getting
things in order while preparing
for what could be another
tough go 'round with Mother
Nature. Hendry County was
largely spared the devastation
that befell other parts of the
state last year, but this is another
year and there is no place for
complacency in disaster pre-
paredness.
The Emergency Manage-
ment Department is responsible
for the county's overall prepara-
tion for and handling of general
emergency situations, such as
natural disasters (hurricanes,
tornadoes, floods).
An old hand is back at the
county's Emergency Manage-
ment. Tom Kochheiser has
returned as Interim Director of
Emergency Management, filling
the vacancy left by Brian Runge.
Tom served in that position


from late 1997 till 2001. He has a
strong background as a fire
chief and public safety director.
From Hendry County he went to
Fernandina Beach in Nassau
County, but left following finan-
cial cutbacks and reorganiza-
tion there. He was semi-
"retired" but looking for a new
position when he got the call to
come back and fill in here.
"I already know the pro-
gram, the area and the folks. I
just need to come up to speed,"
he said Monday, his first full day
back on the job. "I'm on famil-
iar ground."
Staffer Amy Howard is play-
ing a big part in helping him
"reconnect" with the local situa-
tion.
"We're behind in several
major projects," he admitted -
notably the Comprehensive
Emergency Management Pro-
gram. He prepared the county's
last one himself in 1998. The
document is due every five
years and was due in 2003. The


county's hazardous materials
plan is also delinquent. If plans
are not brought up to date soon,
state funding will be in jeopardy.
Tom is confident that the
updates can be done and said
that the state will work with him
to get everything in order.
In the meantime, he warns
that it is expected to be a signifi-
cant hurricane season again this
year.
With a reorganization of
county government, Tom will
now report to the new Director
of Public Safety Randy
Bengston, who now oversees
the Emergency Management as
part of his regular duties. He
also oversees the county's three
fire departments, the EMS
(ambulance) service and E-911,
which implements the emer-
gency calling system.
Mr. Bengston said he will not
be "hands on" in Emergency
Management, but his role will

incident in which a GMC Yukon
SUV driven by Ms. Hall reportedly
rammed into the rear of a vehicle
driven by Delma Gonzales, at a
red light at the intersection of SR
80 and Bridge Street. Ms. Hall
reportedly got out and talked to
Ms. Gonzales, then drove away as
Ms. Gonzales reported the crash
to the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office via cell phone.
When the Yukon reappeared
and headed west onto SR 80,
deputies followed with lights and
sirens activated. A video camera
mounted, in. Sgt. Jamie Thorpe's
patrol car captured the pursuit.
By the time it was over eight
officers were involved in the pur-
suit: Deputy Perry Short, Sgt.
Thorpe, Lt. Chad Schipansky, Sgt.
Andrew Drew, Deputy David Gal-

departments and two EMS sta-
tions and is proud of the way they
all run.
He is a state certified firefighter
and holds certification as a Fire
Officer I with the state. He is on
the Division of Forestry Overhead
Team, supervising operations
during brush fires, hurricanes and
other disasters. He currently
serves on the hospital authority,
but, if elected, he will automati-
cally resign from that position.
As mayor, he said his top prior-
ities would be a "friendlier, more


legos, Investigator Steven Mal-
donado, Deputy Martin Meyer and
Sgt. Curtis Clay. The Yukon contin-
ued westbound for several miles
then made a U-turn across the
grass median, heading east
toward LaBelle.
According to the Grand Jury's
findings, three attempts to deploy
"stop sticks," designed to deflate
tires, were unsuccessful in stop-
ping the vehicle. Two of the dri-
ver's side tires did go flat, but the
Yukon continued to ride on the
wheel rims.
At one point, the left front Sgt.
Clay's vehicle got stuck in the
right front side of the Yukon, drag-
ging the sheriff's unit along with
it. After almost striking a west-
bound pickup truck head-on, the
Yukon approached the Shell gas
station at Martin Luther King
Blvd., forcing a PT Cruiser driven
by Patricia Nixon to back up on
SR 80 and around the corner onto
MLK, then forcing her off the


civil city government" and provid-
ing safe, clean drinking water.
"I'm an administrator," he
points out, "I have built the EMS
over the years, starting small and
gradually developing a larger,
more effective organization. I
know about proper spending," he
continued, "and have consider-
able expertise in getting public
safety grants." He is quick to point
out that these are important skills
for city government, as well.
"As mayor, I would be one of
five on the commission guiding
the city. We need a professional
city manager to oversee the city's
day-to-day activities and report
back to the commission. I've
been asked how we can afford


road. On MLK, Deputy Meyer got
in front of the Yukon, where his
vehicle was struck in the rear,
spinning it to the left with the dri-
ver's side facing the front of the
Yukon. The Yukon stopped, but
struck the driver's door of Deputy
Meyer's vehicle, pinning it shut.
The other deputies got out of their
vehicles and approached, but
Deputy Meyer could not exit
through the passenger's door
because the computer console
blocked his way. The Yukon
lurched backwards, apparently
going over the door of one of the
sheriff's vehicles.
The Grand Jury reasoned that
Deputy Meyer may have thought
he was going to be rammed
when he felt his vehicle move and
shot one time from his .40 caliber
Glock pistol. At almost the same
time, Lt. Schipansky fired four
times, Sgt. Drew fired twice,
Deputy Gallegos fired four times
and Inv. Maldonado fired five


this," he said, adding, "but I ask
'how can we not afford it?'"
He said he is in favor of chang-
ing the city charter to allow a city
manager form of government to
replace the strong mayor system
in place now. "The mayor should
be the same as the other commis-
sioners," he believes.
Mr. Bengston said, contrary to
rumors, he's heard, "No one will
be fired, if I'm elected."
Knowing that exponential
growth is on its way, he said he
would look to experts like the
Regional Planning Council and
Hendry County Economic Devel-
opment Council for assistance
with those issues.

Clay fired twice with a 12-gauge
shotgun.
Deputies then secured the
scene and Hall was taken into
custody. She had been struck sev-
eral times by bullet fragments,
shotgun pellets and broken glass.
Off-duty medics on-scene began
medical attention and she was
then transported to Lee Memorial
Hospital.
According to the Grand Jury
report, Ms. Hall's blood alcohol
content tested at .139. She also
reportedly tested positive for
cocaine, opiates and benzodi-
azephine. Hall's driver license
was suspended at the time of the
incident.
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement began investi-
gating the incident that evening.

run for office, he said he's been
"educating" himself on city
issues, attending meetings and
checking public records.
"It's time for a change," Mr.
Bengston said, "time to demand
professionalism in city govern-
ment.
"This is our city and, as citizens
or our city, we should benefit
from every action taken by our
city government. As mayor, I
pledge to ensure that every citizen
has a voice in our government. I
will be the first to tell you that I am
not a politician. I will not tell you
just what you want to hear, but
will be honest with everyone.
Together we can achieve great
things."

Jax man dies in


Glades crash


A Jacksonville man was killed
in a traffic crash in Glades County
June 1. According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Timothy D.
Dean, age 30, was driving a 2000
Freightliner at about 1:50 p.m.
Wednesday, headed north on US
27 (SR 25) in the right lane. A wit-
ness told authorities that the driv-
er of an unknown vehicle, also
traveling northbound but in the
left lane, changed lanes, forcing
Mr. Dean's vehicle onto the grass
shoulder of the road where his
2000 Freightliner began to rotate


counterclockwise. It then over-
turned and came to a final rest on
its roof. Mr. Dean died at the
scene from injuries sustained in
the crash. He was not wearing a
seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Authorities are looking for a
purple Peterbilt truck tractor
pulling a chrome box trailer,
which fled the scene.
Anyone with information
concerning this crash is asked to
call the Florida Highway Patrol
toll free at 1-866-833-2715 or
*FHPon a cell phone.

Walk In Sunshine

May you always walk in sunshine
And God's Love around you flow,
For the happiness you gave us,
No one will ever know.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
A part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
A million time we needed you,
A million times we cried,
If love could have only saved you,
You never would have died.

Your loving family


By Donna Meister
Fordson/Sunset Park resident
Nora Fagin was happy to hear that
her community and MLK Blvd. will
be receiving much needed road
safety improvements at the June
Community Traffic Safety Team
meeting. Although a temporary fix,
double yellow striping will take
place between the road edges and
where the sidewalks begin. Reflec-
tors will also be added and stepped
up enforcement of speeders is also
planned. Ms. Fagin reported that
ATVs, illegal for street use, have
been racing through the streets and
are just an accident waiting to hap-
pen.
Mike Boyle, Superintendent of
Public Works, assured Ms. Fagin
that when the first new impact fees
start rolling in, the area is on the
books for some of the first road
improvement. Impact fees may be
established as early as October 1.
Highway 80 at Bridge and Main
Streets got some much needed
road traffic signage. Going east on
Hwy. 80, many travelers are con-
fused thinking Highway 29 North is
at Main Street instead of Bridge
Street and try to turn left at Main.
The new painted road arrows and
thermo plastic glass beads in the
paint should be helpful at night.
Red light running is always a
problem and enforcement is hard
to accomplish 24 hours a day
seven days a week with a shortage
of deputies, said Lt. Rick Waldron
HCSO.
Darrell Addison of Buckle Up
Florida did an informal seat belt
survey recently in front of McDon-
aids and reported that about 60
percent of drivers complied with
the law. That is up slightly from last
year, however below the statewide
average.


PLBU has grants

Port LaBelle Unit #4 Euca-
lyptus Village POA has
received a SFWMD grant for
irrigation water conservation.
If you live in Port LaBelle POA
Unit #4 and use Port LaBelle
Utilities water to irrigate, you
may be 'eligible for funding
that helps conserve water.
Call Susan at the POA office at
675-4168 to get details on
how to start the process.

Lt. Waldron promoting the statewide Click it or Ticket cam-
paign "It's not about writing tickets. It's about saving lives."
Statistics prove that 66 percent of fatalities in accident cases
were not wearing a seat belt. Officers will be enforcing the
law when they ticket a driver for not wearing seat belts or not
having a child properly restrained in a child safety seat.

Highway 80 danger: I live on Hwy. 80 east between LaBelle
and Clewiston. I work in LaBelle, traveling there daily and each
trip I feel like I'm taking my life in my hands the minute I sit
behind the wheel to date I've been forced off the road twice. I've
called the sheriff's office to complain that there are no deputies
on the road and was told that they would be beefed up. I've never
seen any more there. I've called FHP to complain and was
assured that coverage on the road wouldbe beefed up. I've never
seen any more there! Why is it that someone has to die before the
police do show up? Why can't they keep their promises?

Don't change comp plan: Our county commissioners are
looking to change the comprehensive plan for the old Oxbow
Golf Course so developers from Naples can develop the course
into more residential lots. We already have more than enough
residential lots in Port LaBelle to meet our needs for many years
to come. What we don't have is recreation for all of the people
moving to LaBelle. I think our commissioners and county govern-
ment let us down when the course was subdivided and sold.
Presently, the property is designated as leisure recreation by the
comp plan and I don't understand how the county can let the
property be developed as it already has. I don't think that a model
home center qualifies as leisure recreation nor does a new subdi-
visiori or condos.
Those who bought it knew it was leisure recreation or should
have. Now they want the county to bail them out for their mis-
take. If the use isn't changed, and it doesn't have to be, these
parcels can't be developed and maybe our county can do what
should have been done originally and buy the property and put it
back to its original intended use as a public golf course.
Anyone interested in restoring the course should come togeth-
er now and fight this change by contacting your commissioners
and attending the workshop and meetings to let them know how
we feel. Remember, we are voters, the out-of-town developers
are not.

UF experts say feral pig problem here to stay


By Chuck Woods
University of Florida
Florida's population boom
now includes some 500,000 wild
hogs whose piggish habits are
causing problems for farmers,
residents and health officials as
well as native flora and fauna.
"Nothing personal, but the
only state with more wild hogs
than Florida is Texas," said Bill
Giuliano, an assistant professor
of wildlife ecology at the Universi-
ty of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences. Wild
or feral hogs can now be found in
every Florida county and in at
least 35 states including 1 to 2
million hogs in the Southeast.
Nationwide, their population
totals about 3 million.
"Because they are prolific
breeders, there is no way to com-
pletely eradicate them," Giuliano
said. "Even with intensive hunt-
ing pressure, you're not going to
get rid of them."
He said the problem can be
traced to 1539 when Hernando
DeSoto brought hogs into south-
west Florida and some of them
found freedom in the New World.
Nearlv 500 vpears latpr there arep


densities of feral hogs can be
found north and west of Lake
Okeechobee where large forest-
ed tracts, dense vegetation, abun-
dant water and limited public
access provide an ideal environ-
ment for the pigs. Hog numbers
tend to be lower in areas with
intensive agriculture or urban
development.
"Although they are a popular
target for hunters, wild hogs are
coming into conflict with people
and wildlife," Giuliano said.
"Farmers are not happy when
feral hogs root up their fields and
health officials say the animals
carry diseases that could affect
wildlife, livestock and people."
Giuliano, who conducts
research on the animals with
George Tanner, a professor in the
UF wildlife ecology and conser-
vation department, said hogs can
also host many diseases and par-
asites, including hog cholera,
psuedorabies, brucellosis, tuber-
culosis, salmonellosis, anthrax,
ticks, fleas, lice and various flukes
and worms.
"Wild hogs, which usually
weigh 100 to 200 pounds, are
dangerous," Giuliano said.
"A ithnno ith -l-,nv rf trM n in and


ous injury with their tusks."
Acorns are their favorite food,
but they will eat almost anything,
including dead animals and it
seems like they're always looking
for opportunities, he said. When
natural foods are scarce or inac-
cessible, hogs will forage on
almost any agricultural crop and
livestock feed. They will also feed
on tree seeds and seedlings, caus-
ing significant damage in forests,
groves and plantations. In Florida
and the Southeast, this may be a
problem in regenerating long-leaf
pine forests.
In addition to the effects of
consuming, knocking down and
trampling large amounts of
native vegetation and crops, the
rooting behavior of wild hogs
causes significant damage, Giu-
liano said. Rooting digging for
foods below the surface of the
ground destabilizes the soil sur-
face, uprooting or weakening
native vegetation, damaging
lawns and causing erosion. Their
wallowing behavior destroys
small ponds and stream banks,
which may affect water quality.
They also prey upon ground-nest-
ing wildlife, including sea turtles.
"Wild hnrsc ernnt.to for fornd


nesting birds and mammals," he
said. "With their fine sense of
smell, wild hogs can find and
consume young domestic live-
stock, including poultry, lambs
and goats. Millions of dollars are
spent each year to prevent dam-
age from hogs."
Tanner said it may be possible
to limit further population expan-
sion by hunting, various trapping
methods and exclusion.
"Hunting is an important con-
trol method for wild hogs
because it provides recreational
opportunities," he said. "Baited
hog traps may be more success-
ful than hunting, especially when
the animals are nocturnally
active. The traps should be strong
enough to contain large hogs and
have tall walls or a wire roof to
prevent them from escaping. And
remember that hogs are power-
ful animals that are easily excited
when trapped:"
Fencing is an effective but
expensive control option for a
small area such as a garden, but
hogs are intelligent and resource-
ful animals that often find ways
through many types of fences,
Tanner said. Chain link fences

on'prescription drugs in their'
area.
The website, www.MyFlori-
daRx.com, provides pricing
information from competing
retailers for the 50 most com-
monly used prescription drugs
in Florida, as well as generic
equivalents when available. The
website, the culmination of a full
year of preparation and imple-
mentation, enables Florida con-
sumers to comparison shop for
the lowest "usual and custom-
ary prices" generally known as
retail prices reported by local
pharmacies.
The website can also be
accessed from the Attorney Gen-
eral's website at http://myflori-
dalegal.com/ or AHCA's website
at http://www.fdhc.state.fl.us/.
"For many Floridians, pre-
scription drugs make up a signif-
icant part of the family budget,"
said Crist. "This website is a
giant leap forward for these fam-
ilies, and we are pleased to be
working with a partner like the
Agency for Health Care Adminis-
tration to help Florida con-
sumers. By arming consumers


with valuable prescription drug
pricing information, we will not
only help consumers save
money, we'll also encourage
healthy competition."
Several other state attorneys
general and federal agencies
have launched sinfilar websites,
but Florida's new website is
unique because it allows con-
sumers to compare prices for
prescription drugs charged by
pharmacies in their city, and
even within their individual zip
code. The price search and other
information are available in both
English and Spanish, and the
results can be downloaded into
a spreadsheet so consumers can
review all prices at their conven-
ience.
Joining Crist to announce the
website were legislative spon-
sors and representatives of the
Florida Retail Federation, AARP
and the Florida Medical Associa-'
tion.
Prices on the website reflect
what an uninsured consumer,
with no discount or supplemen-
tal plan, would normally pay.
The information on the website
is meant to help consumers
compare prices at different phar-
macies, and is not a guaranteed
price. While the information on
the website will be updated reg-
ularly, it is important to note that
prescription drug prices can


change daily.
AHCA was charged by the
Florida Legislature with creating
the website to help Floridians
comparison shop among phar-
macies. Since prescription drug
prices are rarely advertised or
displayed, the website supports
the Attorney General's and
AHCA's goal of providing Floridi-
ans with reliable information on
the cost and reliability of health
care services in the state of Flori-
da.
"Governor Bush has made
transparency in health care serv-
ices a top priority, and this web-
site represents another advance
in arming Floridians with infor-
mation to help them make the
best health care decisions," said
AHCA Secretary Alan Levine.
"AHCA is proud to be a part of
this milestone on the road to
Governor Bush's goal of total
transparency in health care pric-
ing in the state of Florida."
The legislation calling for the
webpage was sponsored by Sen-
ator Durell Peaden and Repre-
sentative Frank Farkas. Senator
Peaden joined Attorney General
Crist at a news conference
launching the webpage, while
Representative Farkas issued the
following statement in support:
"Floridians currently compare
prices when purchasing such
essentials as gasoline, groceries


and other products. This web
site will allow our citizens to
price shop their prescription
drugs, thus generating tremen-
dous savings that can be used
for other basic needs."

The Attorney General's Med-
icaid Fraud Control Unit is
involved with pharmacy pricing
issues as part of its responsibility
to investigate and prosecute
fraud involving physicians, phar-
macists, hospitals, durable med-
ical equipment suppliers and
others suspected of intentionally
defrauding the state's Medicaid
program. In the last two years,
investigations and prosecutions
conducted by the Medicaid
Fraud Control Unit have been
responsible for more than $40
million in recoveries for the
Florida Medicaid program as
well as fines, forfeitures and
judgments.

Working to improve access to
affordable, quality health care to
all Floridians, the Agency for
Health Care Administration
administers Florida's $15 billion
Medicaid program, licenses and
regulates more than 32,000
health care facilities and 30
health maintenance organiza-
tions, and publishes health care
data and statistics.

Learn to deal with your diabetes
You've just had a physical examination and your doctor says: "You
have type 2 diabetes." What do you do?
If you are like most people you shut down and begin to feel a little
panicky. The doctor says to change your diet, exercise more, take med-
ications, test your blood and come back in three months. You leave the
office feeling dazed and wondering where to start. Hendry County
Health Department's Heart to Heart Program wants to help clear up
some of your confusion and help you learn more-about living well
with your diabetes.
The Heart .to Heart Program will offer free diabetes education class-
es beginning Monday, June 13, from 5:15-6:30 p.m. at the health
department, 1140 Pratt Boulevard, LaBelle. The classes will run for
eight consecutive Mondays. These classes will help people with dia-
betes (and/or those who love them) learn ways to control their dia-
betes and take better care of themselves and to become aware of the
steps they can take to improve their health. The focus will be on the
importance of incorporating simple and positive health behaviors into
everyday life.
Topics will include: understanding carbohydrates and food
exchanges; healthy and tasty cooking for diabetics; diabetes and heart
disease; eye and foot care for diabetics; and avoiding hypo- and hyper-
glycemic complications. Participants will also learn about the impor-
tance of physical activity and ways to effectively monitor diabetes to
maintain or obtain optimal health.
The Diabetes Education Classes will provide diabetics with valuable
information about diabetes and taking care of themselves. Heart to
Heart also offers a monthly Diabetes Support group. The next group
meeting is Tuesday, June 21, at 5:15 p.m.
For more information and to sign up for these free classes call Mary
Ruth Prouty at the Hendry County Health Department at 674-4041 Ext

Dr. Randolph L. Partain returns to LaBelle to vacation with
parents Dennis and Carol Partain and to share his amazing
talent.


Don't miss Partain


Fortunate music lovers have
another chance to enjoy the tal-
ents of former resident and 1990
LHS graduate Dr. Randolph Par-
tain. Having recently completed
his doctorate degree in music
composition at the Sheppard
School of Music at Rice Universi-
ty in Houston, Texas, Dr. Partain
will be performing at two Sun-
day morning services at the Carl-
son Memorial Methodist Church
on June 12. Both the 9 a.m. tradi-
tional service and the 11 a.m.
contemporary service will also
welcome back Pastor Jay
Goforth, who has been on a
medical and personal sabbati-
cal. Dr. Partain will perform his
own compositions of praise and
worship music at both services.


He will perform his art music
in his very impressive style in the
new sanctuary of the same
church where he started playing
worship music at age 13.
Last summer pianist, com-
poser Dr. Partain performed his
anti-war song cycle "Pax Ameri-
can: Songs of Protest" in Prague
and his string quartet "Seven
Oblivions" was performed at
Florida State University's Festival
of New Music in February. Ger-
man tenor Gregory Wiest has
also performed Dr. Partain's
works.
Communicating without
words, creating emotion and
mood and increasing awareness
with his music is what Dr. Par-
tain does so exquisitely.

Chad Lutkenhaus: A future in hoops


By Donna Meister
Many LHS basketball follow-
ers certainly know the name
Chad Lutkenhaus. What you
may not know is that Chad is
making quite a name for himself
throughout the state and nation
with his basketball skills.
Chad plays with 16-year-olds
on a Ft. Myers traveling basket-
ball team called the High Hoops
Hustlers, in the five-on-five Divi-
sion 1. They are currently ranked
#1 in the state and #1 in the
country for the United Specialty
Sports Association (USSSA). Six-
foot-five inch Chad is averaging
12.4 points per game with nine
rebounds and two blocked
shots.
The team won the National
Invitational in Port St. Lucie
recently and Chad had the honor'
of being selected for the All-
Tournament Team.
. The coach of the High Hus-
tlers called Chad a "coaches
dream." Coach Chuck Shafer
said, "Chad is .quite a young
man. He is surrounded by loving
parents, Kevin and Beth, who
have obviously raised him well
because he is so well grounded.
Chad is a starting forward, but
can play any position. He always
says "yes sir, no sir," and just flat
out loves to compete. LaBelle

Basketball camp


hones court skills


By Donna Meister

Another successful summer
basketball camp took place in
the LHS gym for 101 basketball
enthusiasts. LHS Athletic Direc-
tor David Kelley had help from
the school's basketball team
members, who will benefit from
the experience of working with


the youngsters. They will also
enjoy extra training this summer
when the teams go to basketball
camp at USF in July, FGCU and
also Cocoa Beach. Money raised
from the youth camp will pro-

Big Cypress closed


to off-road vehicles


Superintendent Karen Gustin
has announced that Big Cypress
National Preserve will close to all
recreational off-road vehicle use
for a sixty-day period beginning
Monday, June 20. The Recre-
ational Off-Road Vehicle Man-
agement Plan calls for a sixty-day
seasonal closure to allow a peri-
od free from resource pressures
related to ORV use.
The off-road vehicle closure
within Big Cypress National Pre-
serve was first instituted in 2002,
and coincides with a portion of
the wet season of the year. This


year, the closure is scheduled for
Monday, June 20 through Thurs-
day, August 18, with trails re-
opening on Friday, August 19.
This closure does not apply to
landowners that hold special
use permits to access their pri-
vate properties through the Pre-
serve.
"Due to weather, motorized
travel in the Preserve is minimal
at this time of year," stated
Gustin, "therefore the closure
will inconvenience very few
people and will benefit the
resources."

12 Caloosa Belle, Thurday ue920


It's hurricane season: How should I protect my family anm


Plan an evacuation route.
Contact the local emergency
management office or American
Red Cross chapter, and ask for
the community hurricane pre-
paredness plan. This plan should
include information on the safest
evacuation routes and nearby
shelters.
Learn safe routes to other
areas.
Be ready to drive 20 to 50
miles to locate a safe place.
Have disaster supplies on
hand.
Flashlight and extra batter-
ies
Portable, battery-operated
radio and extra batteries
First aid kit and manual
Emergency food and water
Non-electric can opener
Essential medicines
Cash and credit cards
Sturdy shoes
Make arrangements for pets.
Pets may not be allowed
into emergency shelters for
health and space reasons.
Contact your local humane
society for information on local
animal shelters.
Make sure that all family
members know how to respond
after a hurricane.
Teach family members how
and when to turn off gas, electric-
ity and water.
Teach children how and
when to call 9-1-1, police or fire


department and which radio sta-
tion to tune to for emergency
information.
Protect your windows.
Permanent shutters are the
best protection. A lower-cost
approach is to put up plywood
panels. Use 1/2-inch plywood -
marine plywood is best cut to fit
each window. Remember to
mark which board fits which win-
dow.
Pre-drill holes every 18 inch-
es for screws. Do this long before
the storm.
Trim back dead or weak
branches from trees.
Check into flood insurance.
You can find out about the
National Flood Insurance Pro-
gram through your local insur-
ance agent or emergency man-
agement office. There is normally
:a 30-day waiting period before a
new policy becomes effective.
Homeowners polices do not
cover damage from the flooding
that accompanies a hurricane.
Develop an emergency
communication plan.
In case family members are
separated from one another dur-
ing a disaster (a real possibility
during the day when adults are at
work and children are at school),
have a plan for getting back
together.
Ask an out-of-state relative
or friend to serve as the "family
contact." After a disaster, it's


often easier to call long distance.
Make sure everyone in the family
knows the name, address, and
phone number of the contact
person.
During a
Hurricane Watch
(A Hurricane Watch is issued
when there is a threat of hurri-
cane conditions within 24-36
hours.)
Listen to a battery-operated
radio or television for hurricane
progress reports.
Check emergency supplies.
Fuel car.
Bring in outdoor objects
such as lawn furniture, toys, and
garden tools and anchor objects
that cannot be brought inside.
Secure buildings by closing
and boarding up windows.
Remove outside antennas.
Turn refrigerator and freezer
to coldest settings. Open only
when absolutely necessary and
close quickly.
Store drinking water in clean
bathtubs, jugs, bottles and cook-
ing utensils.
Store valuables and person-
al papers in a waterproof contain-
er on the highest level of your
home.
Review evacuation plan.
Moor boat securely or move
it to a designated safe place. Use
rope or chain to secure boat to


trailer. Use tiedowns to anchor
trailer to the ground or house.
During a
Hurricane Warning
(A .Hurricane Warning is
issued when hurricane condi-
tions (winds of 74 miles per hour
or greater, or dangerously high
water and rough seas) are
expected in 24 hours or less.)
Listen constantly to a bat-
tery-operated radio or television
for official instructions.
If in a mobile home, check
tiedowns and evacuate immedi-
ately.
Avoid elevators.
If at home:
Stay inside, away from win-
dows, skylights and glass doors.
Keep a supply of flashlights
and extra batteries handy. Avoid
open flames, such as candles and
kerosene lamps, as a source of
light.
If power is lost, turn off
major appliances to reduce
power "surge" when electricity is
restored.
If officials indicate evacua-
tion is necessary:
Leave as soon as possible.
Avoid flooded roads and watch
for washed-out bridges.
Secure your home by
unplugging appliances and turn-
ing off electricity arid the main
water valve.


Tell someone outside of the
storm area where you are going.
If time permits, and you live
in an identified surge zone, ele-
vate furniture to protect it from
flooding or better yet, move it to a
higher floor.
Take pre-assembled emer-
gency supplies, warm protective
clothing, blankets and sleeping
bags to shelter.
Lock up home and leave.
After the storm
Stay tuned to local radio for
information.
Help injured or trapped per-
sons.
Give first aid where appro-
priate.
Do not move seriously
injured persons unless they are in
immediate danger of further
injury. Call for help.
Return home only after
authorities advise that it is safe to
do so.
Avoid loose or dangling
power lines and report them
immediately to the power com-
pany, police, or fire department.
Enter your home with cau-
tion. Beware of snakes, insects
and animals driven to higher
ground by flood water.
Open windows and doors to
,entilate and dry your home.
Check refrigerated foods for
spoilage.


d property?
Take pictures of the dam-
age, both to the house and its
contents for insurance claims.
Drive only if absolutely nec-
essary and avoid flooded roads
and washed-out bridges.
Use telephone only for
emergency calls.
Inspecting utilities in a dam-
aged home
Check for gas leaks-If you
smell gas or hear blowing or hiss-
ing noise, open a window and
quickly leave the building. Turn
off the gas at the outside main
valve if you can and call the gas
company from a neighbor's
home. If you turn off the gas for
any reason, it must be turned
back on by a professional.
Look for electrical system
damage-If you see sparks or
broken or frayed wires, or if you
smell hot insulation, turn off the
electricity at the main fuse box or
circuit breaker.'Ifyou have to step
in water to get to the fuse box or
circuit breaker, call an electrician
first for advice.
Check for sewage and water
lines damage-If you suspect
sewage lines are damaged avoid
using the toilets and call a
plumber. If water pipes are dam-
aged, contact the water company
and avoid the water from the tap.
You can obtain safe water by
melting ice cubes.

You can survive the expense of summer bills


Take Charg
S Summer whether you view it
in terms of long, lazy days of
respite, or simply a turn of the sea-
son where kids are now free to ter-
rorize you at will, it's just around
the corner. With the change in
temperature also comes a change
in most of our habits, not always
for the better.
In 2004, the average retail price
of electricity in residential homes
was 8.94 cents per kWh, up from
8.7 in 2003, according to the Ener-
gy Information Administration
(EIA) of the United States Depart-
ment of Energy. This increase is a
trend that is likely to continue in
the coming years.
To add to the increasing cost of
electricity, the EIA forecasts that in
2005 gasoline rates will remain
high during the upcoming sum-
mer months; at an average of
$2.28, with the peak expected in
May.
How will consumers deal with
these skyrocketing costs? "First
and foremost, don't panic," says
Mike Sullivan, director of educa-
tion for Take Charge America.
"This is the perfect time for fami-
lies to work together to prepare
for the upcoming summer
months. A few moments of con-
templation and planning can net


re America offers tips for summer energy savings


you literally hundreds of dollars of
savings money you can then
put to good use to make the sum-
mer more fun and enjoyable."
Sullivan says there are many
ways to prepare for the summer
months that will reduce your ener-
gy usage and still ensure a cool
and relaxing summer. Some of
them include:
Household
Preparation
Review your monthly elec-
tric bill. Some electric companies
offer special rate plans for usage
during off-peak hours in the sum-
mer. Check to see which plans are
available in your area and are
best-suited for your situation.
Don't install window unit air con-
ditioners too early in the season. If
the weather turns colder sudden-
ly, you may be forced to use heat,
which may escape through a win-
dow air conditioner, wreaking
havoc on your energy efficiency
plan. It's best not to install the unit
'until absolutely necessary. And
when you do, keep its usage mini-
mal in spring. Try using a ceiling
fan instead to circulate cooler air.
Check your insulation! Poor-
ly insulated patio doors may


increase your electricity bill more ticleid=18
than you may think. Check to see 0 Replace incandescent bulbs
that your doors are properly insu- with fluorescent lights. Use incan-
lated, especially older sliding descent lamps only when neces-

Transportation and
Gasoline Mileage
Check the air filters in your car
and replace, if necessary. Cars will
run more efficiently if the filters
are clean and brand new.
Inflate regularly! Car tires
should be kept properly inflated to
ensure safety and longevity. Under-
inflated tires will increase your
car's fuel consumption, costing
you more money. It only takes
approximately five minutes to
check the air pressure in your car's
tires a small investment that will
save money and may save lives!
When planning a summer
road trip, avoid carrying items on
the roof of your car, if possible.
Travel light and avoid lugging
unnecessary items that may nega-
tively impact your car's fuel econ-
omy.
Purchasing
Appliances
Check out the Energy Guide!
Research all appliances before
you buy and look at its Energy
Guide label before making-a pur-
chase. The label tells you two
things: the product's estimated
.energy use in kWh/year in com-


prison to similar models, and the
product's estimated yearly operat-
ing cost in dollars, which is based
on the national average cost of
electricity. The information is right
there for you don't neglect to
read it!

"In a democracy, the highest office is that of citizens."
US Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter.


We agree. Yet too many citizens feel powerless to influence
the flow of events.


We give people a voice, Our Speak Out column is just one
example. We consider it an extension of the secret ballot
and a return of the values of the American Revolution.


How are we doing?


Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or call-
