Wanted: High school
Have you ever thought you
would like to become a football
official? Well, according to Nick
Smith, Game Assigner for the
South Gulf Football Officials
Association (SGFOA), there has
never been a better time.
According to Mr. Smith who is a
LaBelle resident and veteran
high school official, avery severe
shortage of officials for all sports
at all levels exists nationwide.
The demand for officials in Flori-
da has outgrown the growth of
the officiating ranks. Mr. Smith
said the SGFOA will train, assign
games and pay you for officiat-
ing high school games. Youth
(Pop Warner) officiating can
also be scheduled through
SGFOA membership. The Spring
recruiting meeting of the SGFOA
will be held Monday May 8,
beginning at 7 p.m. in the cafete-
ria at Fort Myers Senior High
School. All persons ii ltiested
are invited to attend the meeting
and'or call Nick Smith at 863-
675-3502 for more information.

Three victims lost their lives
in a traffic crash this past week-,
end on SR 80 in Alva. The crash
occurred at 12:37 p.m. Sunday,
April 23. According to the Flori-

Compos and Roberto Compos,
ages unknown, died at the
scdne. A third, victim, Maria
Montero, reportedly died Mon-

It was the first trip out of the
States for most of the young
people who headed to Costa
Rica on a mission trip last
month. Thirteen people, includ-
ing six youth, from Carlson
Memorial United Methodist
Church experienced one of the
most memorable trips of their
lives as they shared their beliefs
with some of the world's poor-
From March 19-26 the mis-
sionaries from high school age
to 80+ years of age went on the
trip with Pura Vida Missions,
holding Bible camps for kids
twice daily morning and after-
noon at two locations in San
Ramon, Costa Rica. Living and
working in the Third World
neighborhood called Pastoral
was an eye-opener for the little
party. They also had an opportu-
nity to work at an orphanage
and at a community center.
Much of the time they played
ames like soccer and Duck
Duck Goose, and played music
while offering their Christian
message. Many of the mission-
sengers in the vehicle were hos-
pitalized; a six-month old infant
has been released. The victims
were members of one LaBelle
family living on Betty Street.
FPH reports that Alva resi-
dent Robert A Casey, 18, was
traveling northbound on Styles
Road, approaching a red flash-
ing traffic signal at SR 80 in a
2000 Saturn. Pedro Dominguez
Azuara, 28, was driving a 2001
Ford utility truck eastbound on
SR 80. FHP reports that the
Casey vehicle entered the inter-
section without stopping for the
red flashing light and struck the
Azuara vehicle's right side. Mr.
Azuara lost control and the
truck moved,toward the south
shoulder, rotated counter clock-
wise before overturning twice.
The Casey vehicle came to a
final rest facing north on Styles
Road; the Azuara vehicle ended
up facing north on the south
shoulder of SR 80.
Mr. Azuara sustained critical
injuries. In the Azuara vehicle,
only Alejandro Ramirez was a
wearing seatbelt. He sustained
serious injuries. Other passen-
gers included Maria Montero,
who was in critical condition
when hospitalized; Jesus
Dominguez. serious; Joahana
Mr. Casey was uninjured in
the crash. All the injured were
transported to Lee Memorial
The crash occurred on a sec-
tion of SR 80 recently reopened

ly not a factor in the collision.

Scott said the river's trou-
bles begin to the north, as nutri-
ent-laden rains flow into it from
the north watershed. Nutrient
concentrations create "dead
zones" that are not easy to fix
and result in blue green algae
blooms in the summer. Nitro-
gen sucks up the oxygen from
the water, eventually killing fish
and aquatic life. Lake Trafford
in Immokalee has suffered
from a similar issue.
Just a few months ago the
Oxbow #24 in Fort Denaud

healthy river with native plants,
aquatic and shore plants. The
oxbow diminishes the destruc-

The purpose of the free health
fair is to raise awareness of the
steps women can take to
improve their health. Women are
often so busy with the needs of
others they do not take the time
to focus on their own health
needs. When women take even
the simplest steps to improve
their health, the results can be
significant. Heart disease is the
number one killer of women.

heart attack or stroke? Are you at
risk for diabetes? Do you know
the symptoms of diabetes or
what pre-diabetes is? Do you
know your cholesterol and blood

Charles was 66 years old. He
was recently widowed. He had
retired from the railroad industry.
He owned a home with no mort-

fish. He had a good pension plus
social security, some securities,and
three paid-up life insurance poli-

never been married, and she had
no children. Unfortunately, she
was in very bad health. She had
several heart attacks and she was a

After Charles became wid-
owed, he met Ilene. Eventually,
they fell in love and got married. It
was more than just a marriage of
convenience. They were very
happy and very much in love.
Charles asked me to change the
beneficiary on his life policies to his
newwife. Ilene, coincidentally, had
a small endowment policy with the
same insurance company and she
asked me to get Charles named on
her policy. It was at this time when I

Some time later, Charles died. I
filed the insurance papers for Ilene

Rather soon thereafter, something
strange happened. The man that

name listed as beneficiary on

just married her! Needless to say, I
was shocked. I called Ilene and

her about the three children from

if she had made a will and she said
no. I suggested she do that as soon
as possible, but I knew she wasn't

comment. He said to me: "I got
everything; I got all the old man's
money, (they were about the same
age, but that is what he said), I got
the house, and I even got his boat."
I asked himt if he was going to give
any of it to the children up north,
and he said: "I probably would
have, but now I don't know. They
hired an attorney, so I might not
give them anything."
It is hard.to believe that intelli-
gent people, Charles and Ilene,
could allow such a nightmare to
happen with a nice estate, but it
did. It wasn't intentional, nor with-
out forethought. It happened
because they would not take the
time and relatively small expense,
to get with an attorney. It could
have been such that Ilene lived in
the marital house for the rest of her
life, had plenty of income and at
her death the assets passed to
Charles' children. Instead, every-
thing Charles and his firstwife, plus
Ilene, accumulated ended up in the
hands of a charlatan. The names
were changed; the facts were real.
Complete your financial planning,
and protect the ones you love.

This information is part of a
series on Pandemic Influenza
provided by The Hendry and
Glades County Health Depart-.
ments. The series will cover
basic information and actions to
be taken if Pandemic Flu
becomes a realistic threat to the
citizens of Hendry and Glades
County. This is the fourth article
in the series.
For the past few weeks we
have been discussing Avian Flu
,and steps that can be to taken to
prepare in the event of a pan-
demic flu. Dr. Fernandez, Direc-
tor for Hendry and Glades Health
Department, has encouraged cit-
izens of Hendry and Glades
Counties to prepare a disaster
kit. The supplies can also be
used to be prepared for hurri-
cane season. Dr. Fernandez has
recommended stocking up on
prescription medicines, prepar-
ing a family emergency plan,
and purchasing several non per-
ishable food items each week.
What is Avian Influenza?
Bird Flu is a virus that affects-
birds. Avian Influenza does not
usually infect people, but infec-
tions with these viruses have
occurred in humans. The possi-
bility of a human being infected
is rare and usually involves
touching a sick or dead bird that
carried the virus, handling infect-
ed birds, or touching surfaces
contaminated by sick birds or
What is an epidemic?
An epidemic is a widespread
outbreak of disease.
What is a pandemic?
A pandemic is an epidemic
(widespread outbreak) that
affects the world. Pandemic flu
is a global disease outbreak that
occurs when a new influenza
virus appears that causes serious
illness. People have little or no
immunity to the new virus and it'
can spread easily from person to
person.. Currently there is no

because the first two conditions
have already been met. The
H5N1 is a new virus for which
humans have no immunity. It
has infected over 194 people in
which half died, which means it
is a particularly virulent (potent)
disease. As the disease spreads,
there are more opportunities for
the virus to mutate (change) into
a strain that is easily transmissi-
ble between people.

ic? What could I expect to see?
There would 'be warning

Because the flu can be
transmitted by coughing or
sneezing even before a person
knows they are sick, avian
influenza would spread rapidly
because of travel and transmis-
sion due to close proximity.
Hospitals could be over-

ple seeking care, and there may
be high rates of worker absen-
teeism which could interrupt the

couraged thereby affecting the

More information will be pro-
\vided next week, but remember
that the best defense against any
infection is proper hand-wash-
ing. Dr. Fernandez states, "Our
community should use this time
to prepare, not panic, and
remember that the goal of the
Hendry and Glades County
Health Departments is to keep
our community well informed."

Cowgirls lose champion hopes
Golden Eagles, 6-5
The Cowgirls softball team
entered the district tournament
as the number one seed but after
winning the first two games by a
37-1 margin, they fell in the
championship game to
Riverdale High School. Despite
the loss the Cowgirls are still
alive, but will now have to travel
in order to continue toward their
goal of a state title. That first
game will be this week as they
travel to Naples.
In their first game of the tour-
nament they raced past Dunbar
High School by a lopsided 31-1
margininn which just about
everyone on the team got to see
some action. From there, they
Coming into that game
LaBelle wanted to avenge an
earlier loss, their only district loss
of the year. Coach Marroquin
said the team was excited about
The team didn't take long to
jump on the Wildcats, either.
Amanda Atun swept past the
first three batters in a one, two,
three inning, something she did
again in. the third and sixth
inning as well. LaBelle then took
to the offensive.
Blake Rice opened the game
with a single and was moved to
second on a sacrifice bunt off the
bat of Cori Ankney. Ankney,
however, reached base when
Estero committed an error on
the play. Two batters later
Heather Raulerson singled in
Rice for the early lead.
LaBelle managed another run
in the top of the first when a sec-
ond Estero error led to Ankney
scoring. The 2-0 lead was all that
LaBelle would need the rest of
the way, but they weren't done
LaBelle managed to score
two more in the fourth and then
one in each the fifth and sixth
inning to get the 6-0 shutout.
Atun finished the game with
three strikeouts and a walk while
allowing five hits.
LaBelle wouldn't be so lucky
in the championship game as
they faced Riverdale which had a
score to settle with the Cowgirls.
Riverdale used an earlier loss to
LaBelle as motivation as they
were able to get past the Cow-
LaBelle wasn't able to get
anything going for themselves as

Morris competes at regionals
On Tuesday, April 11, the
LaBelle High School girl's track
team traveled to Golden Gate
High School Naplek for the Dis-
trict 12 track .ret. This track
meet brings tether all of the
member schools in district 12 for
their annual track and field com-
petition. This is the first stop on
the road to the state champi-
onship finals in Jacksonville.
Brooke Morris was the star
athlete for LaBelle, as she was
second in the 800-meter run and
advanced to regional competi-
tion at Tampa Berkeley Prep on
April 20. She is the only member
of the LHS girl's team to advance.
Brooke was also a member of the
fifth place finishing girl's 1600-
meter, relay team. Only the top
four teams go, so this group bare-
ly missed advancing in this event.
This team is made up of Brooke',
Chelsa Causseaux, Jordan Walls
and Jania Thompson. Also earn-
ing points for Ithe LHS team was
the girl's 400-meter relay team
whose members included Brook,
Jania Thompson, Brittany Galle-
gos and Chelsa Causseaux.
On April 7, LaBelle High
School hosted its annual Cowboy
Invitational Track Meet. Six area
high schools joined your host
Cowboy track team for a great,
afternoon of track and field com-
petition. Over 150 athletes, repre-
senting some of the very best ath-
letes in southwest Florida,
participated in this event.
The star of the meet for LHS
girl's track team was Brooke Mor-
ris. Brooke raced to a first place
finish in the 800-meter run,
anchored the third place 400-
meter relay team and anchored
the third place 1600-meter relay
tear. Brooke was the overall
points leader at this meet and has
been all season. Jordan Walls
also scored points for LHS in
three events as she captured sixth
in the 800-meter run, was a mem-
ber of the fourth place 3200-
meter relay team and was a
member of the 1600-meter relay
team. Brittney Gallegos had her
best finish all year as she won
medals in the 400-meter relay
and the 1600-meter relay. Other

Pittman returns for state play
. Senior Amanda Pittman won
her singles matches at districts by
convincing scores of 6-0, 6-1,6-0, 6-
2 and 6-0, 6-0. She will be compet-
ed at State Finals on Tuesday, April
25, at Jesuit High School in Tampa.
After a three week lay-off because
of a tender elbow, the physical ther-
apy and icing seemed to have
worked magic for Amanda.
According to Coach. Bobbie
Spratt, the girl's tennis team had
another fabulous tennis season,
winning at least half of all their
matches. She is very proud of them
Amanda's sister, Melinda, who
usually plays in the second slot,
was also out for two weeks with a
knee injury. Teammates stepped
out of their comfort zones and
moved up to play those two posi-
tions during the regular season.
The higher caliber of play and extra
experience seemed to pay off.
The team ended their season
tying for third place at the district
competition that took place at
Cambier Park in Naples last week.
Rachael Boy, the number five play-
er went to district finals in singles.
Jessica Alsina, team position num-
ber six, competed in the third slot,
going three sets. Senior VanCheska
Koch and Melinda Pittman, "under-
dogs from LaBelle," playing in the
number two doubles, beat the Lely
High School girls in the semi-finals.
Amanda Pittman and Rachael Boy
played quite well in the number
one doubles spot against a very
powerful Naples team.
Because of a change in redis-
tricting, during district competition
LaBelle High School was paired
against Naples schools such as
Lely, Naples, Golden Gate and Pal-
metto Ridge, as well as Immokalee
and Clewiston. Many of the Naples
girls have been playing tennis since
they could pick up a racquet.
The LaBelle returning players
are looking forward to another fun
learning experience at the Gator
Tennis Camp in Gainesville this
June. Sponsorship and donations
would be greatly appreciated.

Matt Davidson remained
undefeated this season by plac-
ing first at theFHSAA State Finals
in the 199-weight class. David-
son's 660 lb. total was 10
else's. David- .,
son's 345 lb.
and 315 lb.
clean and jerk
were good ; .
enough to .
win the State
Title. Know- Ma t
ing he had the
title he went Davidson
for a state
record of 360 lbs. for the clean
and jerk, but failed. Other than
Davidson, the Cowboy's day did
not go quite as well.
Out of seven other lifters,
only two placed in the top ten.
Blake Basquin, weighing in at
169 lbs., and Manual Solo in the
129 lb. weight class placed in the
top ten in their classes.
Basquin's 270 bench press and
280 lb. clean and jerk were good
for 10th place at the state com-
petition. Basquin lifted his per-
sonal best; and a school record
of 169 Ibs. in his weight class,
but faced outrageous competi-
tion in the 169 lb. weight class.
Lenrot Sahene of Avon Park
won the 169 weight class with a
370 bench press and 280 lb.
clean and jerk.
"Our goal every year is to win
our sectional, and have two peo-
ple place at states," said Coach
This year was, the Cowboy's
forth straight sectional ride. The
Cowboy's sent a record eight
lifters to the State Finals.

Ten-year-old Blanca Hernandez bravely allows hairdresser
Merry Kelly to prepare her long dark locks for the scissors.
Locks of Love helps cancer patients feel better
Ten-year-old Bianca Hernan-
dez is sporting a brand new look
these days. Her long dark hair is
gone, but not just thrown into a
trash can and forgotten. Her
beautiful tresses will be woven
into, a special wig for some
unknown cancer victim who has
lost her hair.'
The fifth grader at Communi-
ty Christian School decided to
donate her hair to the American
Cancer Society's Locks of Love
program because she wanted to
help other children.
Daily washing, brushing and
twisting her waist-long tresses
up into a bun were a chore for
this active ten-year-old one she
admits she's not sorry to give up.
Even with her cute new layered
style, she still has plenty of hair
to pull up into a sporly ponytail,
if she wants to.
Her parents are Estela and Jay
Hernandez. Estela said they had
Bianca's long hair cut and donat-
ed it to Locks of Love once
before when she was just five
Bianca's a straight A student,
her mother said. Bianca likes her
teacher, Miss Hand, and says she
wants to be a lawyer some day.
She enjoys her pet hamster,
Patrick, and even used him as.
inspiration for her Tropicana
Speech contest entry this year.
Bianca's mom took her to
Sissie's Place to have her hair cut
and Merry Kelly did the styling. A
hairdresser for 20 \ears, Merry
said she's so impressed with lit-
tle girls like Bianca \\ho donate
their hair for other children, rec-
ognizing that children who lose
their hair from cancer treatment
can be victims again by cruelty
from other children. The
thoughtfulness of little girls like
Bianca can make a big differ-
ence in their lives.
You can donate your hair to
Locks of Love. It must be at least
ten inches long, clean, dry and
bound together in a ponytail or
braid. Place it in a plastic bag
and mail it in a padded envelope
to: Locks of Love. 2925 10th

Back in business
Hurricane Wilma blew down the Pioneer Community Park sign but with a new paint job
and the help of County Road and Bridge employees Walter Greer, Armando Rodriguez
and former Pioneer resident David Bosley, the landmark sign to point the way to the Pio-
neer Park is back up ready for the next hurricane season. The sign was an original design
of Pioneer resident Alice McCluskey. It was a wooden sign and after years of weather was
in bad shape. Several years ago David Bosley took the original design and cut it out of
sheet metal, so the sign should serve Pioneer residents for many, many years.

Projects restore part of old river
By MaryAnn Morris
By the 1940s, Central Florida
was well-populated. The pri-
mary industry was cattle. In 1946
and 1947, hurricanes dumped
record rainfall on South Florida.
The Kissimmee River swelled
out over its floodplain and thou-
sands of cattle were drowned.
South of Orlando, most of the
state was underwater with
flooding responsible for exten-
sive property damage through-
out South Florida.
A group of concerned citizens
met in Okeechobee, formed the
Central and Southern Flood Con-
trol District (which later became
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District) and ultimately
petitioned the government to
help control the flooding.
To protect developing areas
around Kissimmee and control
flooding in the Kissimmee River
Valley, the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers straightened 103
miles of the meandering Kissim-
mee River and its 35,000 acre
floodplain into a 56-mile-long,
30 foot deep, 300 foot wide
channel, draining 21,000 acres of
floodplain in the process. This is
the C-38 Canal. The wading birds
left. The sandy river bottom
where fish spawned became
-covered with silt brought down
bi rushing water from the north-
ern reaches of the watershed
and the fish left. The marshes
dried up and ducks no longer
made their nests along ,the
The Kissimmee River water-
shed forms the headwaters of
Everglades System. It feeds Lake
Okeechobee and the Everglades.
Water matters in this region are
handled by the South Florida
Water Managerent (SFWMDl),
one of-a number of such state
agencies in Florida. Flood con-
trol, water supply, water quality
and maintenance of the natural
areas of the watershed are all
responsibilities of SFWMD., This
includes many different wetland
and aquatic ecosystems, more
than two dozen lakes, their tribu-
tary streams and the Kissimmee
The restoration of the Kissim-
mee River is not a single project
The Kissimmee Basin Modeling
and Operations Study, Kissim-
mee River Restoration Project
(KRRP), Kissimmee River Head-
waters Revitalization Project
(KRHRP), and Kissimmee Chain
of Lakes, (KCOL) Long-Term
Management Plan (LTMP) are
major projects in the watershed.
These projects include ecosys-
tem restoration, evaluation of
the work, aquatic plant manage-
ment, land management, water
quality improvement, water sup-
ply planning and how better to
balance them all, while also con-
sidering the impacts across
ecosystems including Lake
Okeechobee and the Caloosa-
hatchee and St. Lucie estuaries.
The Kissimmee River Restora-
tion and the Kissimmee River
Headwaters Revitalization proj-
ects were jointly authorized in
the 1992 Water Resources Devel-
opment Act. The two projects
have an estimated combined
cost of $578 million and will be
completed in several phases,
with completion in 2012.
The primary goal of the
Kissimmee River Restoration
Project is to re-establish the
river-floodplain system. The
project will restore, over 40-
square miles of river/floodplain
ecosystem including 43 miles of
meandering river channel and
2-7,000 acres of wetlands. The
restoration project is a joint part-
nership with the South Florida
Water Management District
(SFWMD) and US Army Corps of
This requires reconstruction
of the river closer to its natural
form and reestablishment of his-
toric flows. Basically, it means
un-straightening the river. Track-
ing ecological responses will
give scientists the ability to judge
their success and provide scien-
tific information for fine-tuning.
Phase I of the KRRP was com-
pleted in February 2001 and
filled approximately 7.5 miles of
the C-38 canal (the straightened
Kissimmee River), re-carved
approximately 1.25 miles of river
channel and demolished the S-
65B structure to reconnect 15
miles of continuous river chan-
nel. Surveys show water quality
was improved and populations
of wading birds, ducks and fish.
Much of the water flowing to
the KCOL and Kissimmee River
originates in four headwater
basins north of the KCOL one of
the most rapidly urbanizing
areas in Florida. The quality and
quantity of water flowing
through these basins influence
the health of all downstream sys-
tems. The SFWMD works with
local governments throughout
the Upper Basin to fund water
resource projects to improve
water quality, water supply, nat-
ural resources, and flood control
levels of service.
The KICCO Wildlife Manage-
ment Area is an approximate
7,400-acre property in Polk
County, managed by the Dis-
trict's Land Stewardship Division
and was purchased under the
Save Our Rivers Program in 1985
as part of the KRRP. It is located
on the west side of the C-38
canal in Pool A of the Kissimmee
River. The north border is State
Highway 60, and the south bor-
der lies south of the S-65A water
Since the C-38 canal will not
be backfilled north .of S-65A,
flow will not be restored to the
remnant Kissimmee River in
Pool A. However, smaller proj-
ects will serve to increase water
storage, improve water quality,
mitigate flooding and restore the
wetland community in parts of
the floodplain associated with
the river's tributaries. This will
restore historic tpre-C&SF Pro-
ject) floodplain to Packingham
and Buttermilk sloughs.
Increased wetland habitat for
wildlife and creation of a "wvet-
land corridor" between Lake
Kissimmee and the restored por-
tion of the Kissimmee River will
result. The main features of the
restoration plan are the creation
of two containment .levees,.
backfilling of drainage ditches
and installation of gated water
control structures to. manage
water levels and mimic the his-
toric surface water levels in the
basin according to a model
developed from historic data at
nearby Fort: Kissimmee. This
modeling was completed in
March 2005. Detailed design is
under. way.and-is scheduled, for
completion this fiscal year.
Rolling Meadows Ranch lies
on the south shore of Lake
Hatchineha. The 2,260-acre
property was purchased by the
SFWMD and the FDEP as part of
the KRRP. Currently, this proper-
ty is leased back to the previous
owner as a sod farm.
The restoration- plan shows
the construction of a 1,670-acre
impounded wetland, possibly
fed by water from Lake
Hatchineha and from Catfish
Creek. The wetland will be man-
aged to mimic the natural lake
and will provide habitat for
wildlife. The area outside the
impounded wetland may be
incorporated into the Lake
Kissimmee State Park. To assess
how water will be delivered to
the impoundment, hydrologic
modeling of Catfish Creek was
completed in March 2004. The
report outlines three options for
providing water to the impound-
ment. A final decision has not
Currently, a statement of
work to develop a conceptual
restoration plan for the property
is under review. It will include
creating a conceptual restora-
tion plan for the Rolling Mead-
ows/Catfish Creek property. His-
torical (pre-C&SF Project) data
such as aerial.photography, veg-
etation and soil maps, and stage
data shall be used to delineate
natural communities and the
historical route of Catfish Creek.
The primary purpose of the
Kissimmee- River Headwaters
Revitalization Project is to pro-
vide water storage and regula-
tion schedule modifications to
restore the historical flow char-
acteristics of the Kissimmee
River system. The secondary
purpose is to increase the size
and quality of lake littoral zone
habitat in lakes Kissimmee,
Hatchineha, Tiger and Cypress
to benefit fish and wildlife.
The Long-Term Management
Plan for the Kissimmee Chain of
Lakes was begun by SFWMD in
April 2003. The project's pur-
pose is to improve and sustain
the .ecosystem health of the
KCOL regulated lakes while min-
imizing adverse .impacts to
Over the last year, an annotat-
ed bibliography of KCOL litera-
ture has been assembled. Sur-
veys of people in the KCOL area
showed that people want recre-
ation such as fishing, swimming
and boating and quiet places
where they could enjoy nature.
.Project goals will be changed to
reflect .those preferences.. Two
brochures will keep people
updated on the progress of proj-
ects, another will be more gener-

Beautification at Bob Mason
By Donna Meister
If you are not familiar with it,
the spacious Bob Mason Park is
just west of the city boat docks,
with a wonderful view overlook-
ing the Caloosahatchee River.
Thanks to the joint efforts from
members of the Greater LaBeUe
Garden Club, Hendry-Giades
Audubon Society, LaBelle Her-
itage Museum, Firehouse Cultural-
Center and tle Coalition for Eco-
Recreation the park has gotten
some extra tender loving care.
This group of industrious folks
decided it needed some extra
help. They volunteered their time,
provided the manpower, tools
and even the plants. Many differ-
ent varieties of bromeliads and
plants were donated by Dalid and
Gail Praul of Cape Coral and Vicky
Chirnside from Venice who are all
members of the Caloosahatchee
Bromeliad Society. These 'friend-
ship plants' as they are called,
provide a beautiful addition to the
This energetic group of volun-
teers seem like modern day John-
ny Appleseeds. They have taken it
on themselves to beautify many
areas in our lovely town with
native foliage that require only a
little care and water for the enjoy-
ment ol us all.
The park has a beautiful view
of the river, many oak and pine
trees for welcome shade and
even a fenced kiddie section with
playground equipment for the lit-

The Division of Justice Stud-
ies at Florida Gulf Coast Universi-
ty announces the new Master of
Science in criminal forensic
studies that was launched in
February is now offered to stu-
dents on a part-time basis in
response to student need.
"It was originally established
as a full time MS but there have
been a number of criminal jus-
tice professionals in the area that
have demonstrated an interest in
the degree but cannot leave their
positions to pursue a fulltime
course of study," professor and
coordinator of Criminal Forensic
Studies Duane L. Dobbert said.
FGCU accepts applications
through July I for the MS pro-
gram and reviews submissions
on a rolling admission basis,
even before receipt of GRE
In addition, students may
concurrently fulfill undergradu-
ate course requirements for
admission to the graduate pro-
gram while enrolled in certain
graduate level courses in the
The MS builds upon the Bach-
elor of Science in criminal foren-
sic studies. Similar to the BS, the
MS is an interdisciplinary degree
focused on making graduates
competitive in the marketplace
and fulfilling needs left vacant by
programs at other universities
around the state and nation. The
MS degree prepares students for
work and research in advanced
positions with specific skill sets.
The 42 credit-hour degree
program has three areas of con-
centration. Students in the pro-
gram select one concentration
from forensic behavior analyst,
death investigator ii criminalis-
tics, or death investigator in
human identity ind trauma

Aggressive alligator at Port LaBelle Inn
By Donna Meister
Florida Wildlife Control Officer
John Wilke was on duty at mid-
night when the Port LaBelle Inn
called his department on Satur-
day, April 8, with a nuisance alli-
gator problem. It seems that the
12-foot.long alligator was sleep-
ing under someone's van in the
parking lot. Several officers tried
to get the gator out from under
the van when the gator stood up
on all four legs, lifting the van off
A gator trapper from Naples,
commissioned and licensed by
FWC, was called in to handle the
gator. The Naples trapper eutha-
nized the 12-foot gator which was
deemed aggressive. Licensed
trappers then sell the hide and
meat for their payment.
Officer Wilke said they can
usually handle the gators that are
six feet and under. According to
Officer Wilke, at this time of year
he typically gets about four nui-
sance gator calls a day. When the
water level drops in the dry
springtime months, the gators are

Andrew Cowin was a lucky young man at the recent Bunny
Bingo event at West Glades. He won a bicycle, however it
was a girl's bicycle and not a boy's. So what did he do?
Andrew gave the bicycle to a "boy" friend! He also won many
raffle prizes (which he kept), Andrew's mother won the 50/50
drawing. Andrew is a first grader in Mrs. Todd's class.
Bunny bingo leaves
mark at West Glades
This was a first but certainly
will not be the last. Bunny Bingo
night at West Glades Elementary
was a tremendous success from
all standpoints. This first event
was held Friday, April 7, and
proved to be even more than the
school hoped for.
The Principal, Larry R. Luckey,
Jr., said, "We had no idea that we
would get so much support from
the community. Support came
from all directions! Prizes for play-
ing Bunny Bingo, raffle prizes, etc.
Some of the prizes included a tel-
evision, bicycles, outdoor grills,
Easter hams plus other items. It
was such an exciting time for stu-
dents, guests and members of the
PTO (Parent-Teachers Organiza-
He added, "We've been asked
over and over when the next
event will be held. The answer to
that question is Bunny Bingo at
West Glades School will be an
annual event, to be held each year
prior to Easter. The actual date
will be announced early next
Since its opening in 2004, the
new West Glades School has
been woefully lacking in play-
ground equipment for students.
Bunny Bingo was the first event
especially planned to raise funds
for such equipment.
About its success, Principal
Luckey said, "We are over-
whelmed at the financial success
of this event which amounted to
$3,900. And also of primary
importance was the fun and
pleasure for everyone who was
there. Any number of those
attending won more than one
prize! We cannot thank the mem-
bers of the PTO enough, especial-
ly Mrs. Edith Hackman and all the
other members of the PTO who
contributed so much time and
effort, working tirelessly in organ-
izing this event for our school.
Playground equipment is
extremely important for our stu-
dents and now that the Playgound
Fund is off to such a great begin-
ning, We know it won't be too
long before our playground will
have the equipment it needs."
