LaBelle history in spotlight


Don't expect glamour and
glitz, but the premiere show-
ing of LaBelle's Untold Stories
will be a truly exceptional
event just the same. The entire
community is invited to attend
- 5 p.m. Friday, July 15, at the
civic center. The LaBelle
Gourmet Club will provide
refreshments. The 30-minute
history of LaBelle, produced
by WGCU Public Broadcast-
ing, Southwest Florida's pub-
lic television affiliate, will
recount highlights of the city's
beginnings.
The story will be told
through the eyes and experi-
ences of some of the folks
who lived it as well as through
vintage photographs. The
episode, Untold Stories-


LaBelle: Reflections from the
River's Edge, will include
interviews with Lynda Small
Thompson Rider, Ida Lofton
Kirby, William Thomas Mad-
dox Jr., Beauford E. Davidson
and John R. Alexander (Chair-
man and CEO of Alico, Inc.).
In the. works for about a
year-and-a-half, the LaBelle
project is the 17th archival his-
tory of Southwest Florida
towns that WGCU has pro-
duced thus far in its series of
about. 30. A segment on
Clewiston and one on the
Seminole Tribe both aired last
year. Segments on Moore
Haven, a second one on the
Seminole Tribe and one on the
History of Farming and Ranch-
ing are all coming up and will


be of special interest to locals.
Of course, 30 minutes is
not nearly enough to tell:all
the interesting stories and
valuable history of LaBelle. It
is possible that the project
could continue later on with
additional segments.
In the end, this entire series
will serve as a centralized
archive of Southwest Florida
history. These archival histo-
ries will be used as the basis
for local history classes in area
schools. A team of teachers is

Boxing club inspires class


By Donna Meister
Athletes in LaBelle are dis-
covering an old sport. Although
boxing has been around for a
long time, many of today's kids
are unaware of its lessons.
Retired professional boxer
Hugo Vargas has a lot of experi-
ence in the ring and is sharing
his knowledge and passion for
the sport with local kids through
his non-profit LaBelle Boxing
Club.
Recently the Cape Coral Box-
ing Club traveled to LaBelle to
spar with the LaBelle club.
Coach Vargas said, "Our team
worked hard and I am very
proud of them. We really out-
classed the Cape Coral Club.
Our kids were ready to put their
skills to work. The Cape Coral
coaches were impressed by


what they saw herein LaBelle."
Of course, it's not all about
hitting the speed bags, heavy
bags and sparring in the twenty
by twenty foot boxing ring.
Much of the time is spent run-
ning wind sprints outdoors,
stretching, shadow boxing,
jumping rope, doing push ups,
sit ups, lunges, duck walks and
crunches. And you thought you
could sweat! Whew! All the
exercising and conditioning is
done for three minutes at a time
with one minute of rest in
between just like in a real
boxing round. An electronic bell
rings to let the team know when
the three minutes are up.
LaBelle Boxing Club will
enter its first tournament on Fri-
day evening, August 12, in
Orlando. The kids are excited
and ready for the competition.


This will be when. the two
months of hard work will really
payoff.
Hugo also owns the World
Class Barber Shop on Main
Street. He started the non-profit
club and -is now realizing his
hope of starting an amateur
team right here in LaBelle with
all ages and genders. At this
time he has 25 students with
three females and a waiting list.
He doesn't feel he can handle
more than that and still give the
individual attention needed.
Volunteers are always wel-
come to come out to help in the
gym. Practice starts at 6 p.m., on
Monday, Tuesdays, Wednes-
days and Friday evenings at the
World Class Gym behind Cow-
boy Way Tack Shop on Jaycee
Lane in the Hoffman Custom
Welding building.


Hugo Vargas with June Athlete of the Month Maribel Gomez.
Maribel received a certificate for her attendance, hard work,
dedication and excellent grades. She also received a free
month of gym fees ($50) sponsored by L.J. Nobles and family
and a T-shirt and hat from World Class School of Boxing, Inc.
The L.J. Nobles Family has sponsored 12 months of gym fees
for the Athlete of the Month winners. These are earned through
hard work in the gym and at school.

LaBelle segment was produced
by Heather Caputo. Alexa Elliott
is the executive producer for the
entire series.
In addition to WGCU, funding
for this unique historical guide
came from the Hendry County
Board of County Commission-
ers, City of LaBelle, Bonita Bay
Group and Burson-Weathers.
Each segment cost $30,000 to
produce.
The success of the project is
also due in large part to the sup-
port of Mayor Sherri Craichy and
the LaBelle Heritage Museum,
which provided much of the
content.

the commission. In July 2003 he
was elected to the position in his
own right, with no opposition.
Bob served as chairman of the
Swamp Cabbage Festival Com-
mittee for four years and as chair-
man of the carnival committee for
many years. As a city commis-
sioner, he represents LaBelle on
the Hendry-LaBelle Recreation
Board, along with fellow Com-
missioner Dave Lyons.
Over the years he says he's
been educating himself about
how city government works and
the issues the city faces.
He feels that it's important to
have experienced people on the
city commission particularly
because of all the growth and
'rezoning issues converging on the
city now. He feels he brings a
sense of fairness and honesty to
the board and a determination to
"find the answer" when a tricky
question comes up. He sums
himself by saying, "I'm just an
"average Joe" with life experi-
ence." He points to his lifetime of
experience in dealing with people
and running a business. He's
been running businesses since he
was 17 years old. City government
is also a "business" that requires
making decisions based on
knowledge and understanding
the issues.
He hopes to continue to be
part of the team making those.
decisions and revitalize LaBelle's
downtown area, with the Court-
house as a "hub" by implement-
ing impact fee credits for that area
of town.
He is not in favor of the city
joining with the county to build a
regional water plant. One of the
big issues the county and both its
'cities must come to grips with is
water.
He believes the city has made
excellent use of grants for public
projects like the industrial park
and new'sewer system. The city
also plans to utilize grants for the
new water plant.
RichardWilliams
Running against incumbent
Bob Miller is newcomer to the
political arena, Richard Williams.
A pilot with American Airlines,
Mr. Williams points to his active


involvement in the community.
He has been the driving influence
behind the successful Freedom
Day celebrations and also the
LaBelle contingent of the Ameri-
can Cadet Corps. He says he has a
desire to see the good things of
this community continue in spite
of impending growth.
"I will be addressing the issues
our community is facing and
there are many, as well as giving
you the opportunity to ask.me
questions or better yet put myself
in direct contact with your needs
by calling a toll free "Message
Line." I have set up this message
system not only as a tool for this
campaign, but it will also carry
over to be used as a means of
communication to better stay in
touch with your needs and con-
cerns. It will also help keep you
informed of the issues that are
beingaddressed at the city level,"
he said.
You will find the message line
number on my five homemade
campaign signs that will be strate-
gically located throughout the
city," he said.
"Whether you are a voting citi-
zen of the City of LaBelle or a con-
cerned citizen of our greater com-
muinity, I would like to thank you
for your time and consideration in
advance. If you are new to the
realm of politics as I am, I wel-
come you to the table of Democ-
racy. I truly feel that at no other
time in the history of our small
town has it been more important
that the citizenry of our commu-
nity become actively involved and
participate in not only the selec-
tion of the future leadership of
LaBelle, but also become actively
engaged in the formation of a
common vision for the future of
LaBelle. We must all realize that,
regardless of whether or not you
qualify to vote; the decisions that
are made by your city council can
and most likely will have an
impact on your quality of life."

Death toll adds urgency


to traffic discussions


By Donna Meister
The July Community Traffic
Safety Team meeting again had
a full house with representa-
tives from all departments and
areas. Florida Highway Patrol,
Florida Department of Trans-
portation representatives from
Bradenton and LaBelle, City and
County Officials, Hendry/
Glades Health Department,
Click it or Ticket personnel,
LaBelle EMS and Fire Depart-
ments and concerned citizens
all brainstorming to come up
with better ways to keep the
roads we all travel safer.
The heavy toll of 16 deaths in
the county so far this year one
occurring while the meeting
was taking place makes it all
so urgent.
Hendry County Commis-
sioner Bo Pelham brought two
concerns before the team
regarding the east end of
Hendry County. Several near
misses apparently have been
recorded near the Ledeca area
on Highway 80. Citrus and cane
trucks entering and exiting
Highway 80 are a main prob-
lem. Florida Department of
Transportation will investigate
the area and make recommen-
dations.
Clewiston resident Carl
Berner also pleaded along with
Commissioner Pelham for
something to be done in the
area of the Three Brothers
Truck Stop on Highway 27. He
suggested the speed limit be
reduced as slow moving trucks
entering the highway cannot get
up to speed quick enough for
the fast moving traffic. Berner
and Pelham asked if the speed
limit west of the railroad track to
at least the truck stop area be
reduced. FDOT will investigate
that area also to decide on a
solution. Many times proper
traffic signage, painted lanes
and reflectors have been effec-
tive in trouble spots, explained

geon and Debra Stallins show off the statement bracelets
that they donated to dozens of LaBelle kids. The green
camouflage-colored bracelets are popular especially after
Lance Armstrong first introduced his yellow bracelet. These
bracelets have an "I promise not to drink and drive" mes-
sage embedded in the plastic. LaBelle kids from the Amer-
ican Cadet Corps, Driver Education students and Carlson
United Methodist Church Youth Group kids have been
sporting the message. Stallins wanted to focus on teenage
drinking and driving and came up with the idea of the
bracelets. According to the 2003 Traffic Crash Statistics
(Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles),
in Florida 6.7 percent of the drinking drivers in all crashes
were in the 15-19 age group (1,075 out of 15,977).

Dear fNeighbors and friends
Thank you for giving me the privilege of being your Mayor
for the past 12 years. You have entrusted me with duties
and responsibilities of serving the families of LaBelle and
planning for our future. I am honored and humbled to serve
you and the City I love so-dearly.,andLwould like. to contin-
ue giving you my all.

On the cost of government:
It takes hard work every day to hold your ad valo-
rum taxes to 3 mils (plus special assessments), the
lowest we can go and still get state Revenue


Sharing. We have held taxes there for 12 years. I
receive $13,000 per year, drive my own car with the
City paying for gas when I drive on City business. I
get health insurance. I do not have an office, secre-
tary or assistant.


If you elect a mayor who doesn't want to work hard,


it would cost: $80,000 per year for the salary of a
city manager, plus car, gas, benefits (35%), and
redesign of the City Hall conference room for two
offices. A new city manager would need a secretary
or assistant costing $30,000 per year plus benefits.
There would be the cost to hold an election to
change our form of government, plus the cost of
rewriting city codes. These cost of converting to a
city manager government will be up to $170,000
and would raise your ad valorum taxes a minimum
of 33%, but more likely 60%.


The mayor-commissioner form of government we
have in LaBelle should be kept.

How many weeks or years after this month's election are we
going to have to look at campaign signs littering the LaBelle land-
scape? Wouldn't it make more sense to use the money "not
spent" on signage for a worthwhile cause? How about for youth,
team uniforms or books for Barren Library? There are dozens of
ways I'm sure! Guess what? Whoever has the most signs does
not win! I don't need a sign on every street corner and every
neighborhood yard to try and convince me who to vote for! What
a waste of money! I think Richard Williams has the right idea,
using monies for the cadets. Maybe future LaBelle candidates
could agree and sign a pledge to use their campaign monies more
productively.

I live on FL Center Ave. or Lake Ave. as it seems lately. Who is
in charge of the ditches? Is it the homeowners or the county? Most
of the road on one side has no ditches, which is causing the little
ditches we do have to overflow, I am getting sick of seeing all of
this water. I know we live in Florida and this is rainy season, but
my yard has patches of water not a'lake like the road. Instead of
putting up signs and road markers shouldn't the problem get
fixed? I pay a lot of money for taxes, where is it going? The other
roads in the neighborhood are fine except this road and the end of
cemetery/Trader from Ft. Adams to Ft. Center. Last year I saw
work done on the ditches on Bonneville and that road seems to
have no flooding problem. I should not have to worry if I need a
boat to get to town.
This brings the other problem, with all this water brings mos-
quitoes. Since I have lived here I have not seen mosquito control
doing their job of spraying. The mosquitoes are real bad here. I
used to live in town and I saw mosquito control every week it
seems, but not here.

As July 19 and the LaBelle election.draws nearer it is time for
the city's tax-paying voters to do some rational thinking on the
merits of the mayoral choices. The main issue for many of us is
how much more can we afford to pay in taxes to support our
city's government and how the money will be used.
SLaBelle residents,currently pay 3 mills that's $3 for each
$1,000 of assessed property valuation. On top of that we have
county, school and special assessment millages. For me that was
almost $1,500 in real dollars last year.
Hendry County has been my home for a lot of years and the
past 25 I have been a LaBelle resident and voter. Now that I'm
retired I can enjoy this community and appreciate the foresight of
many of our elected officials to create this environment. I am not
taking the upcoming election lightly. I've been carefully looking
around, asking questions and gathering the kind of information
necessary to make the right decision when I go to the polls.
I have looked at the mayoral candidates. Randy has a full time
job and by all appearances e has done it pretty good. But, I think
his employer Hendry County needs to let him understand that
the taxpayers demand 40-plus hours a week and 110 percent pro-
ductivity since he has supervisory responsibility. My thinking is
that no one can serve two bosses. LaBelle doesn't need a hired
city manager or the costs that this would entail.
Sherri has a track record that's hard to ignore. She's held the
line on taxes'and still managed to accomplish so much. I've
looked at the Hendry House, the rebuilt Main Street, the expanded
sewer collection system, the new waste water treatment facility,
the remodeled civic center, a street lighting system, drainage
improvements and so much more. And, our taxes have remained
virtually unchanged.
LaBelle is about to enter into a growth period that requires the
attention of a full-time person who knows LaBelle and its citizens
and will fight for our interests.

Letters to the Editor


Think before voting
Dear Editor:
We are very fortunate this year
to have four candidates who have
offered themselves for mayor and
commissioner this year. Many
words and proposals have been
offered during this year's races,
and as a city commissioner
myself, I feel obligated to speak
on some of these issues without
speaking on behalf of any candi-
date.
I would like to spend one
moment discussing the city's
water. We know there is a prob-
lem and it hasn't been ignored.
The same water that goes to your
house also goes to ours. I feel
qualified to say that your commis-
sion has spent countless hours
working on this issue. In fact, it
has been a major project for
some time now. The commis-
sioners get the same water you do
- we don't like the odor or smell


of what is coming out of our pipes
any more than you do.
In reality, what we have to do
is fix the problem as economically
as we know how. For instance, if
your foot hurts, you don't get it
amputated immediately unless it
is necessary. We have tried sever-
al corrective actions at our water
plant over the past few years -
some have worked temporarily,
some have not. We have come to
the conclusion that a new plant is
necessary.
The current plant, in existence
since the mid-70s, has served its
purpose.
Initial estimates for a 2.5 mil-
lion gallon per day plant is in
excess of $24 million. The city
currently generates $535,728 per
year from its 3 mill levy. To pay
that cost of the new plant, we
would have raise taxes to 10 mills
for the next 10 years, and pledge
all of that money for a water plant

and still fall short of covering the
cost. The only recourse we
would have would be to also raise
water rates.
The commission feels that this
would not be a financially respon-
sible move.
Rather, we have opted to incre-
mentally build a new plant, start-
ing with one that has a 1.5 million
gallon per day capacity. This
would enable us to seek more
government grants and loans to
help pay the cost.
Coming to this solution is not
always quick and easy. It can be a
very slow and deliberate process,
but it is not a process that the city
commission has ignored.
I would also like to take a few
moments to discuss the proposal
to create a city manager. This
move would require a majority
vote of the city commission that
would call for a referendum to
amend the city charter. I have tele-
phoned the cities of Lake Alfred,
Okeechobee, Clewiston, and
Arcadia all of which have
either a city manager or a city
administrator. The salary of a city
manager ranges from $80,000 in
Clewiston to $60,000 in Arcadia.
City managers also have an
administrative assistant or secre-
tary, which really increases the
city payroll by two instead of one.
All of the cities I called, which are
similar in size to our population,
also have a director of public
works.
Mike Boyle currently serves as
superintendent of public works,
which is the same as being a
director of public works. He is in
charge of the water plant, sewer
plant, and streets. Mr. Boyle's
plate is already full, he could not
be expected to do both jobs.
Our ad valorem tax rate gener-
ated $49,701 more this year
through increased property val-
ues in the tity. Assuming that we
had no increase in fuel costs, or
gave cost of living allowances to
any employees, or had no other
increased costs this year, we
would still fall short of funding the
proposed city manager. We
could, however, do this if we
raised taxes.
Perhaps city residents are will-
ing to pay a higher tax rate for
more services. If that is the case,
please let your feelings be heard
by the commission. It has been
my experience, based on 11 years
service to the people of LaBelle,
that the people want us to operate
as efficiently and effectively as


possible.

Were you ready



for a hurricane?


This hurricane season is start-
ing out a busy one. We've been
lucky so far.
If Hurricane Dennis had
turned unexpectedly and come
our way, would you have been
Ready? If not, now is the time to
get the hurricane supplies you
need to have on hand for the
next storm. With a big storm hit-
ting Florida so early in the sea-
son, it could be a very long hurri-
cane season this year.
Those on prescription med-
ications need to take extra care
during hurricane season, Make
sure you always have enough of
your prescription medications
for several days. Don't wait until
you run out of pills to get the pre-
scriptions refilled. In case of a
hurricane, you may be ordered
to evacuate and you'll need a
supply of your medications to
take with you.

Hurricane supplies


Those who lived through Hur-
ricanes Charley, Frances and/or
Jeanne last year probably have a
good idea what supplies they
need.

Mosquito problems
While so far the hurricanes
have not hit our area, high rain-
fall has left some health con-
cerns. Standing water is breed-
ing mosquitoes, which carry
disease. If possible drain stand-
ing water from things such as
wading pools, flower pots and
old tires. Standing water in ditch-
es and low areas on your proper-
ty can't be drained, but there are
other ways to control the pests.
Many fish eat mosquito eggs.
Just make sure that any fish you
let loose are not hazardous to
the environment. Don't release
exotic fish that are not naturally
found in Florida.
Water treatments are also
available that will kill mosqui-
toes and do not harm livestock
or wildlife.
Health officials advise staying
indoors during peak mosquito
times, half an hour before sunset
to half an hour after sunset, and
half an hour before sunrise to
half an hour after sunrise. If you
must go outdoors during this
time, wear long pants and a
long-sleeved shirt and use insect
repellant.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, con-
sult your doctor. This is especial-
ly important if you are on any
prescription medications
because some drugs interact
badly with foods that would oth-
erwise be considered "healthy."

Caloosa Belle, Thursday, July 14, 2005



Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Our time is running out and I wanted to be
ure that you hear the WHOLE TRUTH as
you are making your decision to vote. Our
current Mayor would have you believe that I
will' raise taxes. This is an absolute LIE. The
current growth and rise in property values
will pay for the city manager position if YOU
decide with me that this is what we need.
The Mayor boasts of her ability to keep the tax
rate to 3 mils, this is nothing to boast about.
SOur property values have escalated and with
that the milage rate should decrease. Have
you looked at your tax statement lately? I do
not believe they have been reduced.'
The Mayor would also have you believe that
the position is a FULL TIME position.
This is also not true. The Mayor owns and
maintains a real estate business in LaBelle in
addition to her position as Mayor. We, as cit-
izens, pay city employees to run the day to
day operations of our city and they do not
require someone standing over them every
hour of the day. The Mayor needs to be acces-
sible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, this
is something I am accustomed to and will be
able to continue for you.
I have explained to many of you before that I
am not a politician, I am a citizen of LaBelle
committed to Public Service. I am not willing
to stand by and continue to support a mayor
who does not listen to ALL its citizens. This is
our CITY and each of us needs to become
involved, Together WE CAN ACHIEVE
GREAT THINGS!

With the start of the 2005 hurri-
cane season, the seven local
Catholic Charities agencies serving
Florida have signed an historic
mutual aid agreement to provide a
coordinated ard cooperative
response in times of disaster. The
Florida Mutual Aid Agreement is
the first formal disaster response
agreement of its kind among local
Catholic Charities in the nation,
according to Catholic Charities
USA.
"Such collaboration and coordi-
nated efforts will ensure that the
statewide resources of the Florida
Catholic Charities agencies are
maximized so that people receive
the assistance they need," said Ger-
ald Collins, director of Disaster
Response for Catholic Charities
USA.
The agreement outlines the
commitment of each agency in the
areas of funding, materials and
resources, training,,staffing, techni-
cal assistance and volunteers in
emergency management planning
and response services.
"This agreement provides
Catholic Charities agencies with a
peace of mind in knowing that in
the event of a major disaster, partic-
ularly hurricanes, that they already
have a set of committed resources
in materials and people to assist
them in disaster response and
recovery," said Marcus Hepburn,
emergency management specialist
for the Florida Catholic Conference,
who helped facilitate the agree-
ment. Hepburn was hired in 2004,
through a grant from Catholic
Charities USA, to help coordinate
statewide disaster relief efforts and
serves as a liaison between the
Florida Catholic Charities agencies,
Catholic Charities USA, Federal
Emergency Management Agency's
Region IV, state agencies and other
disaster response agencies.
The mutual aid agreement is
born out of the devastating 2004
hurricanes that left a path of
destruction across much of the
state. In October, the directors of
the Florida agencies met in Talla-
,hassee to plan a long-term, collab-
orative, response strategy and to
begin consideration of a formal aid
agreement.
"As the directors reflected on
their experiences in 2004 and how
to be better prepared for the future,
it became clear that some of the
best examples of disaster response
occurred when one diocese,


through Catholic Charities, assisted
another diocese with shipment of
goods, technical assistance or
staff," said Hepburn
For example, a team of experi-
enced disaster responders from
Catholic Charities of Miami provid-
ed Catholic Charities serving the
Pensacola and Tallahassee areas
with three vanloads of relief sup-
plies and helped the agency mobi-
lize its services to disaster victims.
Catholic Charities in St. Petersburg
also collected truckloads of food
and supplies, sending them to
Catholic Charities in northwest
Florida, Catholic Charities in Venice,
and Catholic Charities in Orlando.
The seven Catholic Charities
that signed the agreement are
Catholic Charities of the Diocese of
St. Augustine, Catholic Charities of
the Archdiocese of Miami; Catholic
Charities of the Diocese of Orlando;
Catholic Charities of the Diocese of
Palm Beach; Catholic Charities of
Northwest Florida in the Diocese of
Pensacola-Tallahassee; Catholic
Charities of the Diocese of St-
Petersburg; and Catholic Charities
of the Diocese of Venice. The Flori-
da Catholic Conference also signed
the agreement.
Although the 2005 hurricane
season is now underway, Florida
Catholic Charities agencies contin-
ue to offer long-term recovery serv-
ices to the victims of last year's hur-
ricanes. Services may include
providing temporary and perma-
nent housing, mental health coun-
seling, budget and financial coun-
seling, job placement and,
counseling, outreach to migrant
farm workers and other assistance.

The girls and boys LaBelle
High School tennis teams recently
attended a tennis camp at the Uni-
versity of Florida. The camp was
from June 26 to June 30. The play-
ers started their days at 8 a.m.
with tennis drills and instruction,
they then played matches where
they had an opportunity to put to
use what they learned.
The .participants were very


pleased with the level of instruc-
tion they received while at UF. All
of the team felt they learned a
great deal from the individual
attention and are anxious to
return again next year.
Coaches Bobbi Spratt and
Patrick McElroy would like to
thank everyone who supported
the teams with their donations
and their support.


Drug price website meets early milestone


More than 50,000 Floridians
seeking the best price for prescrip-
tions have accessed the state's
new drug pricing database in just
over one month of operation,
Attorney General Charlie Crist
announced today. Crist said the.
searchable website at
http://www.MyFloridaRx.com/
surpassed that milestone this
week, just five weeks since he and
the Agency for Health Care Admin-
istration unveiled the tool to help
Floridians find the lowest prices on
prescription drugs in their area.
"Public response to this web-
site indicates that a need has been
met,"


Snorts Shorts


said Crist. "An average of more
than 1,400 visitors a day shows
that Floridians were anxious to
find the lowest prescription drug
costs. We are pleased that so many
of them find this website to be a
useful resource to reduce the costs
of their personal health care."
Crist and AHCA Secretary Alan
Levine announced the website on
June 1.
In the first five weeks of opera-
tion, a total of 50,604 Internet users
have visited the site.
The website provides pricing
information from competing
retailers for the 50 most common-
ly used prescription drugs in Flori-


da, as well as generic equivalents
when available. The culmination
of a full year of preparation and
implementation, the website
enables Florida consumers to
comparison shop for the lowest
"usual and customary prices" -
generally known as retail prices -
reported by local pharmacies. The
website can be accessed directly at
http://www.MyFloridaRx.com/ or
from the Attorney General's web-
site at http://myfloridalegal.com/
or AHCA's website at
http://www.fdhc.state.fl.us/.
The website allows consumers
to compare prices for prescription
drugs charged by pharmacies in
their city, and even within their


individual zip code. The price
search and Qther information are
available in both English and Span-
ish, and the results can be down-
loaded into a spreadsheet so con-
sumers can review all prices at
their convenience. It is designed to
assist consumers of all age groups.
Prices on the website will be
updated regularly to reflect what
an uninsured consumer, with no
discount or supplemental plan,
would normally pay. Because the
information on the website is
based on data provided to AHCA
by the pharmacies themselves,
prices shown on the website are
not guaranteed and may change
daily.

whi sport draws the most dollars

The answer is NASCAR. All four

SHERRI AND BONNIE DENNING
CREATIVE OFFERS
Putting together an offer on a
home is easy if the buyer has a
lot of money, a terrific job and
impeccable credit. Many buyers
are not in that situation, howev-
er. And while sellers like to get
their asking price, good listing
agents prepare them for the pos
sibility of receiving offers that
involve some compromises.
Successful real estate profes-
sionals know how to put togeth-
er creative offers and do whatev-
er it takes to make a transaction
work. If a buyer is low on cash,
the agent may structure an offer
that shifts some of the costs to
the seller, minimizing the
amount of cash that the buyer
needs to close. A variation of a
lease purchase arrangement
might be in order if a buyer has
recently changed jobs or is self
employed and needs a longer
period of time to secure a mort-
gage and/or consult with an
accountant or lawyer. Owner
financing for part of the loan can
make a difference in some cases.
If your agent brings you a com-
plex offer designed to get a
buyer into your home, don't say
"no" until you understand the
offer.
Sherri's daughter, Bonnie, a
C.P.A., brings her expertise to form a
dynamic team ready to serve all your
real estate needs.
For professional advice on all
aspects of buying or selling real estate,

New book chronicles a 1993 child abuse case


By Patty Brant
The case of A.J. Schwarz is
disturbing; it's appalling; and it's
true. The child died at the hands
of a woman who was supposed
to be caring for him. His step-
mother, convicted of snuffing out
his fragile ten-year-old life, is due
for release in 2034.
Scott Cupp is the man most
responsible for putting her in
prison. At the time a prosecutor
with the State Attorney's Office in
Palm Beach County, he now
resides in LaBelle. Scott has just a
written a book on the case that
has meant so much to him.
The Pittsburgh native began
his career with the State Attor-
ney's Office (SAO) in Fort Myers
in 1986, but spent much of his
career in the Palm Beach County
office. After a sojourn in private
practice for a couple years in
LaBelle, he returned to the State
Attorney's Office in Fort Myers
when Steve Russell came into
office. He is currently Chief of
Felony for the Lee County Office,
supervising 28 lawyers.
But in 1993 he took over the
SAO's Crimes Against Children
Unit in Palm Beach County. On
May 2 of that year, 10-year-old
A.J. Schwarz died under suspi-
cious circumstances in his pool
at home. It was the beginning of
a case that would not go away
for Scott, even after he put the
woman responsible behind bars.
The book is a faithful recount-
ing of how the state cobbled the
case together, though severely
limited with only circumstantial
evidence. The book takes you
through the investigation, shed-
ding light on the personal cost of
such a horrendous case on those
charged with finding the truth.
The case is probably the most
significant in Scott's career. Not
really inclined to be a writer,
Scott said -he felt compelled by
A.J. himself to write his story.
Haunted by the overwhelming
sadness that enveloped the
child's life, Scott said he finally
began to commit it to paper


charged with their care.
when he was in private practice
on Cowboy Way.
"He must have felt incredibly
trapped," Scott said. A.J. had
been placed in the home of his
father and step-mother by the
State of Florida and left there for
several years. His sister was also
placed there, but was later
removed from the home, leaving
the boy isolated in a home where
he was constantly belittled and
terrorized. In spite of it all, the
book shows A.J. to be a pretty
normal kid in dire need of love.
The book also raises the
inevitable question of how the
"system" handles complaints
about the treatment of children
in foster care. Scott believes
there is a serious need to change
the way the state handles child.
victims in its custody. He says
long term comprehensive treat-
ment for traumatized children is
needed and as a society we also
need to think differently try a
different. model. He envisions
something like the Peace Corps
or America Corps that would
allow college students to work
off some debt as Guardians Ad
Litem, a program he has seen
work. In fact, the one person
who almost saved A.J. was his


Guardian Ad Litem who tried to
help A.J. through some of the
legal issues around him before
his murder.
When there are clearly estab-
lished signs of child abuse by a
parent, Scott believes the author-
ities should take the child out of
the home. "We over-emphasize
parental rights," he says.
Although the system is supposed
to ."focus on the best interests of
the child," he says they are, in
effect, just words and it is not
done in practice.
If A.J. had lived, Scott is sure
that society would have had to
deal with him in the criminal jus-
tice system. His life in a dysfunc-
tional household would surely
have produced a hardened crimi-
nal angry, violent, sadistic,
remorseless. At that point, socie-
ty would have to focus on pun-
ishing him as it must with so
many others. "We must learn
from A.J.," Scott warns, and find
better ways to deal with these
issues.
The book brings out the diffi-
culties in prosecuting a child
murder case in which a parent is
a suspect. When parents "pres-
ent" well that is, they appear to
be "normal" parents the jury

identifies with them, making it
difficult if not impossible for
jurors to believe them capable of
harming their child. The situation
"touches something in us as par-
ents that scares us," he feels. To
successfully prosecute, the attor-
neys cannot do a half-hearted
job. They must be firm and
attempt to reveal things that are
being carefully hidden away,
Scott points out.
Scott says he's received some
criticism for only charging Jessi-
ca Schwarz with second degree
murder. He says it's a decision he
has spent a lot of time second-
guessing. However, he felt get-
ting a conviction was very impor-
tant. In a first degree murder trial,
you have to convince 12 jurors;
in second degree murder you
only have to convince six, he
points out. In addition, prosecu-
tors had only circumstantial evi-
dence against the defendant and
testimony against her' mainly
from non-professionals outside
the "system" like neighbors and
other children. In fact, the Palm
Beach County Medical Examiner
was the defense's star witness.
Scott wrote the book with co-
author Carol 'J. Rothgeb because
he said he knew he could not do
it alone. The book was a "hard
sell" to publishers who felt the
subject matter was too depress-
ing. He finally found a publisher,
Kensington, which agreed to
publish it under its Pinnacle True
Crime section.
"No One Can Hurt Him Any-
more" can be found at major
bookstores, in convenience
stores wherever books are sold,
and also online at Amazon or
Barnes & Nobles.


It has received good reviews Naples Daily News. The Fort
by the Florida Bar News, Fort Myers News-Press is also ready to
Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel and the print a review.

Trabajadores Hispanos
Debido a la cantidad de traba-
jadores hispanos que trabajan en
la agircultura se esta dandd enfasis
en darles entrenamienos de
seguridad porque ellos no estan
familiarizados con las regulhciones
designadas para que no tengan
accidents en el trabajo.
Cesar Asuaje, un agent de


Extension Agricola esta comenzan-
do el process de dar entrenamien-
tos de seguridad a los agricultores
Hispanos de La Florida."En los
aios recientes, los hispanos han
reportado un creciente numero de
accidents (algunos de ellos
fatales) en la agriculture, industrial y
cuidado deyarda".
Los emigrantes de Mejico y
otros paises no reciben la instruc-
cion de seguridad que las leyes
requieren, dejando como resulta-
do a muchos Hispanos muertos y
otros heridos gravemente. En la


mayoria de los casos las personas
sufren accidents porque no saben
leer Ingles, desafortunadamente
casi ninguna instruction esta en
Epanol.
Cesar esta coordinando entre-
namientos de seguridad en Epanol
para los trabajadores de naranja,
azucar, vegetables, maquinaria
pesadaen 11 condados.
Algunos empresarios no
quieren entrenar bien a los traba-
jadores porque si sufren heridas
tienen que pagarles los costs. Por
ejemplo muchos trabajadores de


cortar zacate se han muerto
porque no saben como operar las
maquinas grandes, otros porque
no usan el material adecuado
cuando estan fumigando, es requi-
sito usar un respirador cuando se
trabaja con pesticides. Los videos
de entrenamiento ayudan pero no
se pueden comparar con la expli-


cacion de una persona al frente de
un grupo en su propio lenguaje.
Recientemente Asuaje hizo un
entrenamiento de Salud y Seguri-
dad para Hispanos en Homestead
el 4 de junio. Proximamente dara
otro en Kissimee en el que se
espera llegaran mas de 1,000 traba-
jadores Hispanos de agriculture.


Witch's Brew


By Pudge Lehman
On the recent trip with my
sister Dawne we were whining
about our mom never finishing
her memoirs. Now, all sources
of family history are deceased.
Despite this fact, not one of the
Palumbo girls, us, has even
started to write anything
down... Moral of this story ...
Start writing down your history
for your children.
Get a pretty bowl and when-
ever you think of a task you
have to do just write it on a slip
of paper and throw it in. Then
when you have some free time,
dump it out and choose one


that fits the
time you
have.
I love
cook-
books. I
don't cook
but I love cookbooks. Think
about it ... In any cookbook
there are usually only a few
recipes you ever use. Copy
them, either on a copier or if
short, by hand. Give the book
away. Now you have space for
a new cookbook!
Werd fer the Week: Smack-
dab... On the dot... .1 was
smack-dab in the middle of that
mess..


Pause and rewind shows anytime do all this, all induded!


Call today in Southern Florida
for all this together.

LaBelle Middle School Dress Code for 2005-2006


All LaBelle Middle School stu-
dents' dress and grooming shall be
appropriate for an academic set-
ting. Students must wear clothing
that in no way disrupts or distracts
from a positive learning environ-
ment. The administration reserves
the right to prohibit the wearing of
any article of clothing, hairstyle or
accessory that is considered dis-
ruptive to the educational process.
Students will be provided with a
clean alternative or parents will be
contacted and asked to bring
appropriate clothing when a stu-
dent wears something inappropri-
ate or specifically forbidden to
school. Continued violation of the
dress code will result in disciplinary
action. Wearing a jacket or coat
over unacceptable clothing does
not satisfy the requirement for the


student to be in compliance with
the dress code.
Tops: Students may wear shirts
and blouses that have a collar and
sleeves. These may be any color
including plaids, stripes, polka dots
and all-over designs such as Hawai-
ian print. Tops may not have any
writing, slogans or graphics on
them. Manufactures' logos are per-
mitted that are less than 3 square
inches. Shirts that are designed to
be worn tucked in are to be tucked
in at all times. Tops must fit appro-
priately and should cover a stu-
dent's midriff, back and undergar-
ments at all times. Tops must not
be see-through or have a low neck-
line. Proper undergarments are to
be worn at all times.
Bottoms: Female students may
wear pants, jeans, shorts, skirts,


skorts, capris and overalls. These
may be any color following the
same guidelines as tops. Girls'
shorts, skirts and skorts are to be no
more than six inches above the
middle of the kneecap. Appropriate
undergarments must be worn at all
times. Pants and shorts must fit
appropriately at the waist and may
not be spandex or see-through.
Bottoms may not have writing, slo-
gans or graphics and they must be
free of holes, tears, and frayed or cut
material. Sweatpants, jogging
pants, nylon, velour and fleece are
not appropriate for school wear.
Bottoms: Male students may
wear pants, shorts or jeans. These
can be any color following the
same guidelines as tops. Pants and
shorts may not have writing, slo-
gans or graphics on them. Pants


and shorts must fit appropriately at
the waist and they must be free of
holes, tears and frayed or cut mate-
rial. Sweatpants, jogging pants,
nylon, velour and fleece are not
appropriate for school wear.
Footwear: All shoes must be
closed toe and closed heel. Steel-
toed shoes or boots are not per-
mitted. Closed in rubber-soled
shoes such as tennis shoes are pre-
ferred.
Outerwear: Coats, jackets,
sweaters and sweatshirts are per-
mitted when the weather requires
them. Sweaters and sweatshirts
must be worn over a collared shirt
or a turtleneck if they do not have a
collar.
Accessories: No head-coverings
are permitted; this includes head-
bands, stocking caps, hairnets,


Keep your landscape free from deer damage


Deer damage to ornamental
plants is increasingly a suburban
problem. Deer populations in
neighborhoods have increased
rapidly due to abandoned farms,
hunting restrictions and suburban
sprawl. Deer are selective feeders
that eat leaves from flowers,
shrubs and ornamental trees.
Damage to larger trees can extend
up to 7 feet. Most areas with over-
populated deer herds experience
problems year-round. The avail-
ability of natural food sources and
the taste preferences of individual
deer make deer-proofing a difficult
task in manyareas.
Deer will eat almost any plant
rather than starve, so damage con-
trol measures will be needed in
addition to careful plant selection.
Use of fencing and repellents can
help control deer damage to land-
scapes.
A fence is the most effective
control against deer damage. An 8-
foot fence is generally sufficient to
deter deer and lower fences can


work if they slant away from your
yard. Tree protectors or shelters
also prevent deer from browsing
on young trees. Made of
polypropylene tubing, plastic tree
wrap, or woven-wire mesh cylin-
ders, netting can be used to protect
individual or group plantings. The
netting can be left on year-round if
it's attached loosely at the base to
allow for plant growth.
Repellents may help deter deer,
but they do not eliminate damage
completely. Homemade repellents
include rotting eggs (mix two eggs
with a gallon of water and spray
the mixture on ornamentals). The
eggs rot on the plants and the
smell repels deer. Human hair
hung in mesh bags makes a sim-
ple repellent. Hang the hair bags
on the outer branches of trees
about a yard apart, and replace
them monthly. Bars of strong-
smelling soap hung in the same
way will also work. This is a good
way to use all those aromatic gift
soaps you have in a drawer. Repel-


lents containing predator urine or
spray-on, soap-based mixtures
usually only last a few weeks,
depending on the weather.
Once deer taste your garden, it
is difficult to rid them of the habit.
Replacing your current mix of
trees and shrubs with plants that
are less appealing will help move
the herd along to, other sites. The
Tree Care Industry Association rec-
ommends planting trees that have
a history of surviving areas of
heavy deer activity, such as:
Best trees: Bottlebrush Buck-
eye, Downy Serviceberry, Shad-
bush, Allegheny Serviceberry, Chi-
nese Paper Birch, 'Heritage'
Heritage Birch, Paper Birch, Japan-
ese Falsecypress, Japanese Cedar,
Colorado Blue Spruce, Scotch
Pine, and Douglas Fir.
Best Shrubs and Climbers:
Bearberry, Pawpaw, Barberry,
Boxwood, Caryopteria, American
Bittersweet, Red Osier Dogwood,
Japanese Plum-Yew, Russian
Olive, Creeping Wintergreen, Rose


of Sharon, John T. Morris Holly,
Lydia Morris Hollies, Leucothoe,
European Privet, Japanese
Andromeda, Common Buckthorn,
Blueberry Elder, Dwarf Sweet
Christmas Box, Russian Olive,
Creeping Wintergreen, Rose of
Sharon, John T. Morris Holly, Lydia
Morris Hollies, Leucothoe, Euro-
pean Privet, Japanese Andromeda,
Common Buckthorn, Blueberry
Elder, Dwarf Sweet, and Christmas
Box.
Check with your local garden
center for a list of trees in your area
that are the least appealing to deer.

What can you do?
Homeowners who would like a
professional arborist to assess their
trees should contact the Tree Care
Industry Association (TCIA), a
67-year-old public and profession-
al resource on trees and arboricul-
ture. Call 1-800-733-2622 or do a
ZIP code search on the TCIA Web
site, www.treecareindustry.org.
