For the family and many
friends of murder victim Danny

The sheriff's gun range is on
a total of about 80 acres'and is
used for many different func-
tions. It is used for law enforce-
ment qualifying, the Army
National Guard, Coast Guard
and Army Reserve training, 4-H
and Boy Scout camping trips, as
well as civilian target practice.
The sheriff's gun range is
now open on Wednesdays and
Saturday for civilians. It's open
on Wednesday from 8 a.m.-l
p.m. on the skeet/trap range
and Saturdays from 8-11:30
a.m. on the skeet/trap range
and 12:30-3:30 p.m. the pistol,
rifle and shotgun range is open.
There are four shooting booths
with bullet proof glass for pis-
tols, a shotgun and rifle range
and a skeet range.
The pistol range and shot-
gun range are both 50 yards.
The rifle range is 228 yards. The
skeet range has eight stations
where you can choose either
single or double birds, meaning
either one or two clay pigeons
at a time. Station one is the high

Friends, co-workers and fam-
ily joined at Don's Steakhouse
on Thursday night, August 24, to
honor Embarq installation and
repair technician Michael
Awbrey as a hero.
Mike Lewis, Director for
South Florida Embarq, honored
Mr. Awbrey with the Carl Scupin
award for employees who risk
their life to save another. This is
only the second time this award
has been given in Florida and
the first time it has been given
since the company's name
change from Sprint to Embarq.
Mr. Awbrey also received a desk-
top trophy and $5,000.

son, Dylan a 6th grader, thought
of his dad he said, "He's awe-

It was about 8:30-9 a.m. on a
regular workday when Mr.
Awbrey was on County Rd. 835
headed back from a "trouble
call," where a person's phone
isn't working at their house. Lit-
tle did he know, he was really on
another kind of trouble call. He
said, "I pulled onto the road
about one mile when this young
guy was flagging me down and I
just figured he had a flat tire or
something, but when I looked to
the left I saw an SUV overturned
underwater in the canal. The
guy who flagged me down was
driving his car behind the over-
turned vehicle when the acci-
dent happened. He was hysteri-

County Jail where he was serving
a year's sentence on two counts

Mr. Woosley's home on SR 29S

that he was a gun collector. Hen-

By Patty Brant
After being back on the job
for just a week, Dwayne Pratt
resigned as fire chief again.
Mr. Pratt sent his resignation
to the city commissioners
through Josh Rimes as the
commissioners worked at a
budget workshop Thursday,
August 24. The board accept-
ed his resignation which cited
physical and mental stress on
himself and his family as its
Rimes, who. is also a fire
inspector, will serve as interim
chief for the city side, while
Malcolm Johnspn-will serve in
that capacity for the county
side. However, all the firefight-
ers will dispatch out of the
LaBelle fire station. Mayor and
Hendry County Director of
Public Safety Randy Bengston
said the current split between
a city and county fire depart-
ment will continue until the
county reinstates the inter-
local agreement concerning
fire coverage. As part of that
agreement, the county actual-
ly foots 70 percent of LaBelle
Fire Department's budget.
A crisis was precipitated
when eight veteran volunteer
firefighters resigned from the
department August 17,
protesting the reinstatement
of Mr. Pratt as fire chief. The
chief had resigned at the
request of Mayor Bengston
last month after firefighters
turned in a five-page list of
grievances against the chief.

City advised tp
At the August 17 LaBelle City
Commission meeting, City
Attorney Owen Luckey sug-
gested commissioners consid-
er updating the city's 80-year-
old charter and that the Code
Review Board take on the proj-
ect and make recommenda-
tions. He noted several possible
changes: increasing commis-
sioners' terms from two to four
years and changing from sum-
mer to fall elections. He said
scheduling city elections later
in the year with general elec-
tions should improve voter
turnout and save the city some
$6,000 per election. Mr. Luckey
said the process of changing
the city's charter would be
lengthy and would ultimately
be decided by a referendum.
The commissioners took no
action but will be considering
Recreation Director Phill
Pelletier asked to use the
$45,000 in the budget that
came from last year's increase
in recreation assessments from

operating on the same budget
for nine years and presented a
list of needs. That list included
replacing old equipment; hurri-

The Area Housing Commis-
sion of Clewiston, LaBelle and
Hendry County submitted a
request that the agriculture hous-
ing complex GreenTree South be
annexed into the city. The 52-acre
facility is located on SR 29S and is
contiguous to the city limits.
The board responded favor-
ably to Tully Dunlap's suggestion
that the city make a gesture of
appreciation to Ken Curtis, the
101-year-old area benefactor who
recently passed away. The
planned LaBelle Edison College
campus will be named for Mr:
Curtis, whose generosity provided
two-year college degrees for over
1,000 local students.
Mayor Randy Bengston sug-
gested the city mark off the side-
walk area on the west side of MLK
with traffic delineators. The Com-
munity Traffic Safety Team has
complained for several months
about double yellow lines the city
painted to mark off the sidewalk
area. CTST said the double yellow
lines can be misinterpreted as the
middle of the road, sending vehi-
cles onto the walking area.

mission meeting will be at 7 p.m.,

John Matson from Naples has
been enjoying skeet shooting for
about five years. He said, "I enjoy

ris immediately asked to see the

burns, gave them additional burn
supplies and called the burn center

for them there. One of her nurses
even dug into her own pocket for
$40 for gas money.

schools in Hendry County have a
good program to teach young
children about good touch/bad
touch and what to do when a
family member or family friend
tries to take advantage of a child?
This should start in pre-school or

Aging in Hendry
One of the challenges that life
provides is how to get out alive.
It has been my great fortune-
to have my parents and grand-
parents live long enough to pass
on to me a positive attitude
about the aging process.
Since coming to Hendry
County, one of the fortifying
aspects of the relocation has
been the genuine appreciation
of the merit and worth of an
aging segment of the popula-
Their many volunteer roles in
all levels of society coupled with
their past employment and edu-
cational experiences are a sub-

So if you will bear with me, as
a member of that exalted group,
I would like to share an article
that was presented to me upon
my retirement and relocation.
I worked 45 years for some-
one else so that I could retire. I
dreamed of sleeping late and sit-
ting by the fire. I dreamed of
long vacations enjoying stage
and song, but let me set you
straight on that concept. It is
simply wrong. I did junk my
safety glasses and the work
boots that cramped my toes, but
the rest of it had a mind of its
SSo this is how it goes. My
wife had been thinking of retire-
ment and had plans of her own.
She had spent much time with
the kids, but now they were
grown and gone. We sold our
cattle and horses so we would-
n't have that chore; I poured
concrete on my alarm clock, but
I still wake up at four. I get my
eyes checked on Monday. She
gets hers checked the next day. I
go for a color check on Wednes-
day and pass the wife going the
other way. I have a dental
appointment on Thursday. She
goes for a test on her heart. Fri-
day we go to get prescriptions
filled and browse awhile at Wal-
Mart. Saturday we just stay
home and try to get the paper
work right. We can't take any
overnight trips 'cause we can't
see to drive at night. Restroom
confusion keeps us out of
church on Sunday, and we really
do hate that. There is nothing
wrong with the restrooms.
We just can't remember
where they're at. We don't need
to plan next week, but just make
sure we can drive and remem-
ber where the hospitals and clin-
ics are. We'll need them to sur-
So don't build your castles
too high, my friends. While
strolling through the clover, as
this is a typical week in retire-
And on Monday you get to
start all over.

rules, I can thankfully say that

Ask your agent about CGL policies
The CGL policy has been
around for a very long time. It is
Comprehensive General Liability
Insurance. If you were to read
cover one of those policies, you
would see that it is broken down
into smaller coverages. An
example is a category called
Manufacturers and Contractors
Insurance, or M and C coverage.
Another category is Completed
Products and Operations cover-
age. Put a few of these together
and you have the essence of a
CGL contract. Just remember
that they are not all created
equally. One might have more
coverages, while another might
have some additional exclu-
sions. One bit of advice I have
often given in this column is to
always ask your agent "what is
Generally, if you have the
choice between taking a CGL
contract and a Business
Owner's Policy, or BOP, choose
the BOP, The BOP has several
extra goodies. If you are a con-
tractor and don't have the prop-
er liability insurance, one law-
suit can cost you everything you
own. I have seen agents leave
out the Completed Operations
Coverage to keep the premium
down in a competitive quote sit-
uation. It requires an auditor
obtain from you on a quarterly
or semi-annual basis, your total
sales revenue information. What
it provides is insurance on your

later, after the compressor and

perfectly, he gets an emergency
call that the system is leaking

the inside of the walls and caus-
ing damage to both condo units
below his installation. Assuming
it is his fault, his completed
products and operation part of
his CGL policy is the place to file
Imagine %what will happen if
his good friend, Mr. Wonderful
insurance Agent, did not include
that coverage in the policy
because he was. trying to keep
the premium down for 'his'

friends is fine; just ask them to

Hendry seeking county attorney
By Patty Brant
After some two-and-a-half years
of searching for a permanent coun-
ty attorney, Hendry County com-
missioners finally opted to employ
a recruiting firm to find a suitable
candidate. Kate English, who has
been serving as interim county
attorney, tendered her resignation
effective September 14. She has
assured the commission that she
will continue to deal with ongoing
county legal business as necessary.
Commissioner Janet Taylor
noted that Hendry's location and
salary level have been roadblocks
to finding the right person for the
job. During the search, the position

get away from the congestion of

small town. He said, "We aren't

We don't want our customers to
settle for something just because
it's cheaper. W'e try to suit peo-

may have to go to another builder,

LHS boys cross country
According to head coach Jeff Frost, the LHS cross country team has the largest boy's
team ever this year with 18. They have six returning runners from last year's team. Last
year the team finished 7 out of 12 teams at districts. The team also has several freshmen
that could challenge for a varsity spot. There are two newcomers from the football team:
Drew Dyess and Tim Fromm who should both contribute largely to the team, possibly
moving on to regionals. Coach Jeff Frost said, 'Uose Guillen is considered the second
best runner and will push Stafford." Stafford King is the considered the best runner. He
is a senior and holds the school record for 3.1 miles at 17:43.Caleb Roden, Jacob Sta-
ples and Brandon Temples will also make this team very competitive.
LHS girls cross country
The girl's team is the second largest team ever with 22. They have five returning runners
from last year's team. That team finished tenth out of 12 teams at districts. Coach Jeff
Frost said, "We lost our top runner, Maribel Gomez, due to graduation." However, Coach
Jeff Frost said, "Irene Garza, a new sophomore, looks to be our top runner this year. She
has looked very good in practice so far. Nancy Vasquez, a new sophomore, may be our
second best runner this year. She has worked very hard so far."

2006 LHS Varsity Cowboys on the move
Gabriel Puente and Caleb Jordan were the only bright spots in LaBelle's 28-6 defeat by
Sarasota Cardinal Mooney last Friday night. Puente's 5-yard run gave fans something to
cheer about at the end of the game, while Jordan completed 13 of 23 passes, totaling
121 yards. A long delay of game for lightning and rainy conditions may have dampened
the Cowboys' game. Coach Ron Dunbar felt that, although the Cowboys were ready, the
boys from Cardinal Mooney had experience on their side. The previous week the Cow-
boys toughed it out to a 19-18 victory over American Heritage. Fans can follow the Cow-
boys to Cain Field in Clewiston September 1 where they will take on the Tigers.

Lots of interesting ships pass through LaBelle. Most go
unnoticed. Friday morning the State of North Carolina's
new, just built, ferry Hatteras passed through eastbound
on the way from the ship builder in LA to its new home
workplace on coastal North Carolina. It is 180 feet long
with a beam of 44 feet and a draft of 6 feet, in order to
work around the Outer Banks. She should carry 40 cars.
This photo shows it entering the Ortona Lock. The crew
remarked that if it had been much wider and they have to
have gone down around Key West.

and we sincerely apologize for the length of time it took to get
to some of your homes. We are in the middle of another rainy
season and at this time we would like to inform residents that
we are currently back on schedule and able to do your roofing
work in a timely manner. We are state certified with workers
compensation and liability for your protection. We stand
behind all of our work with a five year warranty on re-roofs

Turner graduates from ROTC
Ashlie K. Turner has graduated
from the Army ROTC (Reserve
Officer Training Corps) Leader's
Training Course at Fort Knox, Ky.
The 28-day course is a leader-
ship internship for cadets who are
normally between their sopho-
pnore and junior college years.
College students experience and
examine the Army without incur-
ring an obligation to serve in the
Army or ROTC, and are eligible to
receive two-year college scholar-
ship offers and attend the ROTC
Advanced Course at their college.
SThe Army observes and evalu-
ates cadets to determine their offi-
cer potential in leadership abilities
and skills. The cadets are trained
to have a sound understanding of
traditional leadership values dur-
ing the challenging, motivating
"hands-on" training. The training
develops well-disciplined, highly
motivated, physically conditioned
students and helps improve the
cadets' self-confidence, initiative,
leadership potential and collec-
tive team cohesion. The cadets
receive training in fundamental
military skills, rifle marksman-
ship, small arms tactics, weapons
training, drill 'and ceremonies,
communications and squad-level
operations field training.
The cadet is a student at Mari-
on Military Institute, Ala. She is
the daughter of Kenneth L. Turner
and Jackie L. Nesbitt, both of
LaBelle. Turner is a 2006 graduate
of LaBelle High School.

FPL adds incentives, conservation
In an effort to help customers
conserve energy and control elec-
tric bills, Florida Power & Light
Company will soon offer additional
programs and significantly
increased incentives. FPLs new
plan, approved by the Florida Pub-
lic Service Commission, demon-
strates the company's commit-
ment to partner with customers
during this time of rising fuel costs.
Fuel costs, combined with
increased summer usage, largely
-attributed to air conditioning, have
caused many customers to experi-
ence increases in electric bills,
which have been especially notice-
able this season. The company
plans to begin implementing the
new initiatives before the end of the
"We are committed to partner
with our customers any way we
can to help them control their elec-
tric bills," said Marlene Santos, vice
president of customer service for
FPL. "We want to give customers
every tool possible to make their
homes and businesses more ener-
The significant changes and
additional programs are as
Residential Building Envelope
-- An increase in the maximum
incentive for ceiling insulation will
more than double from $131 to
$352. An increase in the maximum
incentive for reflective roofs
increases more than 50 percent -
from $240 to $367 per participant.
In addition, FPL added an incentive
for light-colored roof membranes
and reflective roof coatings with a
maximum of $1,200 per partici-
Residential Low Income
Weatherization -- There is an
increase to the maximum incentive
for air conditioning maintenance
from $35 to $45 per participant. In
addition, there is now an increase
in the maximum incentive for
weather stripping and caulking
from $10 to $60. An additional $25
per participant was added for
replacing room air conditioners
with higher efficient units, further
increasing incentives for this pro-
Residential Heating Ventila-
tion and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
-- Earlier this summer the PSC
approved an increase in the incen-
tive per participant for upgrading air
conditioning units to more energy
efficient equipment that will
increase the average incentive
more than 50 percent from
$260 to $400. This change takes
place Sept. 1.
Business Building Envelope
The program now offers win-
dow-related technologies such as
energy-saving window tinting as
part of the business envelope pro-
gram. Increased incentives for ceil-
ing insulation ($185/kW max); roof
insulation ($219/kW max); reflec-
tive roofs $(579/kW max); and win-
dow treatments ($429/kW max)
add extra value for business cus-
Business Efficient Lighting -
Changing to more energy efficient
lighting will soon pay more. There
is an increase in this business ener-
y program incentive from
Business Water Heating pro-
gram This new energy conser-
vation program applies to the instal-
lation of qualifying heat recovery
units or heat pump water heater
equipment. The maximum incen-
tive is $881/kW
e Business Refrigeration -
Refrigeration can be one of the
largest users of electricity for a busi-
ness customer. That's why FPL will
offer this new program that pays a
maximum of $80/kW for the instal-
lation of qualifying controls and
equipment that reduces electric
strip heater usage in refrigeration
Business HVAC Approved
earlier this year, this program will
soon offer updated minimum qual-
ifying energy efficiency standards to
reflect newer guidelines used by
the U.S. Department of Energy
Standards as well as raised and
added incentives on qualifying
HVAC systems. Business incentive
programs such as the Direct Expan-
sion (DX), chillers, energy recovery
ventilators, thermal storage and
more will offer large increases in
incentives that will as much as dou-
ble. The new guidelines take effect
In addition to these newly-
added or improved programs, FPL
continues to offer residential duct
system testing and repair, the
BuildSmart program for new
homes built with energy efficient
features and equipment, and resi-
dential energy conservation servic-
es such as online home energy sur-
veys. Business customers are
encouraged to continue to take
advantage of business custom
incentives, commercial demand
reduction, and business energy
For the past 25 years, Florida
Power & Light Company and its
customers have implemented one
of the most successful conservation
and energy management programs
in the country. In 2005, the compa-
ny invested more than $100 million
on conservation programs and
energy management incentives.
According to the latest US Depart-
ment of Energy (DOE) report on
conservation programs, FPL was
rated number one among utilities
nationwide. FPL estimates that the
electricity saved through these pro-
grams recently approved would
supply 188,000 homes with elec-
tricity during the summer peak
The rising cost of fuel used to
make electricity at power plants has
caused the fuel portion of cus-
tomers' electric bills to rise 19 to 28
percent. The cost of fuel is a pass-
through cost on which FPL does
not make a profit. The base rate
portion of the electric bill is the non-
fuel cost of producing and deliver-
ing electricity. This has been
reduced by 15 percent since 1999.
