Education: Votech in Action
'Caloosa Belle/Kristin Hunter
The Education Center of Southwest Florida (ECSWF) has its first graduating 'class of
heavy equipment operators.
20 answer opportunity's knock
By Kristin Hunter
The first graduating class
for the heavy equipment oper-
ator license, sponsored and
funded by the South Florida
Water Management District
and coordinated by the Educa-
tion Center of Southwest Flori-
da, held a ceremony at the Bar-
ron Park on Friday, September
29. Everyone enjoyed good
barbecue catered by Buddy's
from Felda, paid for by the
safety school and by dona-
lions. The 20 graduates from
Clewiston, LaBelle, Lehigh
Acres, Immokalee, Naples.
Cape Coral and Ft. Myers,
received their level one opera-
tor certification, a camouflage
cap, a certificate of achieve-
ment from ECSWF, a CPR and
First Aid certification card,
SFWM t-shirt, writing pen and
Sonny Hughes and Geri
Yoraschek 'from ECSWF, along
with Rhonda Haag from
SFWM, presented the students
with their certificates. Rhonda
Haag said, "This class is away
to give back to the community
for buying the land. It would
have cost these people a cou-
ple thousand dollars but
instead it's free and we are
producing jobs." .
Paul Neumeister led the
training and safety school. The
five-week training program
consisted of different tests on
many different heavy equip-
ment machines such as a front
end loader, back hoe, tele-
scopic fork lift, Bobcat, exca-
vator and vibrating roller,
through the course of 200
hours or the last two weeks
Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-4
p.m. filling up holes,. knocking.
down shrubbery, clearing
'land, etc. Students --also
received training in safety, first
aid, CPR and OSHA standards
for the first three weeks.
The training center is locat-
ed on 151 acres on CR 78. The
land is owned by SF\-'M. The
Education Center leased the
property from SFWlM for a \ear
free of charge.
Luis Cantu, ot Clewiston, is
one of the 20 who graduated.
At 27 years of age, he's been
selling cars for the past three
years and before that was an
account manager at Royal's
furniture for two years. When
asked why he decided to take
this course he said, "To be
honest, 1 felt bad selling cars. I
hated getting as much as I
could from a customer. It was
like robbing them without a
gun," All the jobs I've ever had
were inside office jobs but I,
wanted to try something ne\\."
He added, "This experience
has meant a lot to me. it has
given me an opportunity to
learn how to operate heavy
equipment which I've never
done before, as well as give
me a steady job. I'm going to
work at the school as one of
the instructors." When asked
how he was chosen for this job
he said, "I happened to get
some of the best grades in the
class and I did well on the
machines. I still have another
30-hour instructor's course to
take for my new job, but I'm
very much looking forward to
it." He starts on Monday just in
time for the next class to begin.
The next class started Mon-
day, October 2. The class takes
up to 20 people and already
. has 19.
George Roman, 31, of Ft.
Myers is another graduate. He
used to vorik for a garbage
company in Ft. Myers for about
a year, but lost his job because
the company moved from Ft.
Myers to LaBelle and he didn't
have transportation. He said,
"My plan is to achieve my goal
and learn more. I %\ant to go
on to get my level ii and level
III licenses. I want to operate a
crane machine tut I have to

MOTIVES?: There has been a lot of commotion in town regarding
our Property Appraiser Kristina Kulpa and the assessed values of our
real estate in Hendry County. Why do you suppose one real estate bro-
ker is so interested? Is there a personal agenda here?
WALK A MILE: I am outraged by some of the behavior at the civic
center meeting Sept. 26. Kristina Kulpa, Hendry County Property
Appraiser is a professional. She has set the values of the property in
Hendry County according to the mandates set down by the State of
Florida. She knows that these values are disturbing because they rose
so rapidly in just one year. This phenomenon was not isolated to our
county alone. This is something property appraisers are struggling
with all over the state and other parts of the country. I'm certain she is
doing everything she can to cope with the problems created by the
inflated real estate market and high selling prices of the last two years. I
dare anyone to "walk a mile in her shoes" prior to passing judgment.
REAL ESTATE DILEMMA: Aren't real estate brokers supposed to be
professionals in their field? Aren't they supposed to be conducting the
very same comparative market analysis that the property appraiser
uses? How come I don't see anyone complaining about the high prices
real estate companies set on their listings? They are even higher than
the assessed values imposed by the county.
DO YOU REMEMBER?: Doesn't anyone remember when a certain
real estate person fought like a pit bull to get an agricultural extension
on property purchased from the Oxbow-auction? She won and was
awarded the exemption. I think we've caught "the pot calling the kettle
CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS: People in LaBelle are talking out
both sides of their mouths. They want to sell high and pay low taxes.
WIN ONE, LOSE ONE: Thank you, Hendry County commissioners,
for understanding that in a year when assessed values have been
raised so dramatically there is no need to raise the millage. It's a shame
that some of the city commissioners lack the ability to comprehend
SAD STATE OF RENTAL PROPERTY: I'm calling about the rentals
here in LaBelle. It's crazy. In the season they can get $300 week from
illegal pickers, and nobody else can find anything. If you're lucky
enough to get one of those crappy trailers, you pay triple.
END OF MY ROPE: I have called the dogcatcher on the same dog
five times and two of my neighbors have too. Nothing was ever done.
Somebody tell me what can I do?

their morning at the cemetery.
They were volunteering their time

around who were willing to take

Letters to the Editor
Living on a racetrack
I live in N. LaBelle, across the
bridge. I feel as though our sher-
iff's dept. doesn't like to come
over here. Living on County Line
Rd., I am 15 feet inside the Hendry
County line. We seldom see
patrol cars and many, many cars
use the road like a drag strip.
There is a four-way stop at the
intersection with Thigpen and the
posted speed limit is 35 m.p.h.
Most people who use this road
don't bother to obey the limit.
Some go as fast as they can. I real-
ize our sheriff has a budget but
we pay taxes, too. We deserve the
same protection given to people
on the other side of the bridge.
Where was our Property
Appraiser on Tuesday night? I
asked Kristina Kulpa if she would
attend the county commissioner
meeting and explain the values
and she replied if she was asked
she would be there. The commis-
sioners invited her to attend and
she was unable to attend but
would send an employee. Need-
less to say no one showed up.
Kristina, the greenbelt laws
have been in effect for many years
and the enforcement of these
laws is your responsibility. I have

exemptions, it is the properties I
have mentioned to you since

ting agricultural exemptions that
did not meet the standards for ag
exemption? Just think of the tax
money Hendry County would
have coming in for all those river-
front properties that you are
allowing agricultural exemptions.
Have you corrected the taxes on
the riverfront properties or are
those individuals still paying
minute amounts? Hendry County
taxpayers will be watching you

sioners a Thank You and I person-

Power plant provides environmental opportunities
Dear Glades County EDC
I ask the EDC Board of Direc-
tors to consider amendments to
the FPL power plant endorsement
resolution. These amendments
are designed to protect the
longer-term economic health and
well being of our region while we
also pursue near-term economic
The amendments boil down to
2 basic additions: :
1. Encouraging FPL to incorpo-
rate capture-ready design princi-
pals, so that in the future, if cap-
turing greenhouse gases from
power plants becomes,part of our
national strategy to combat global
warming, it will be possible and
economically practical for our
new power plant to make this
transition. The design changes
required to make the power plant
capture-ready would be modest,
involving providing space, valves,
etc. for the CO2 connections to be
made at later dates.
2. Encouraging FPL to fund in
Glades County, the creation and
maintenance of a new, non-profit
organization to provide people
throughout the USA with informa-
tion about capture-ready technol-
ogy and advocacy. This past week
I have called many of the leading
scientists to learn more about car-
bon sequestration, particularly
how it relates to new coal-fired
power plants. I was amazed to
see how few scientists, engineers
and policy advocates are working
on the issue and to discover that
there was no centralized source
of information on the subject suit-
able for use by concerned citi-
zens. This represents a significant
gap for the nation and another
unique opportunity for Glades
County economic development.
If we incorporate these two
new aspects into our resolution,
we will be making national news
(positive news...unlike our cur-
rent negative national political
notoriety). We will be one of the
first communities in the country
to both embrace a power plant
project while simultaneously pro-
moting capture-ready designs.
Furthermore we will be the only
community to seek a carbon
sequestration & capture ready

serve the nation. It will be.news -

Florida is particularly vulnera-
ble to the effects of global warm-
ing and sea level rise. We should,
therefore, be leading the efforts
towards prudent measures to
safeguard against such a fate. If
we incorporate these additions
and adopt the resolution, we will
have endorsed the power plant
project, but with a clear indication
of our social consciousness.
Decades from now, when peo-
ple look back and ask why the
people of previous generations
did so little to address global
warming, I would like our actions
in Glades County to represent a
clear example of prudent efforts
towards wise economic and envi-
ronmental stewardship. We will
either demonstrate that we
attempted unsuccessfully to
address the problem or, if we
actually succeed, we will have
been among the first counties to

You may also want to read the
comments of President Bush
from 5 years ago when he decid-
ed not to sign the Kyoto Protocol.
"The effects of greenhouse
gases and global warming are
becoming an increasingly accept-
ed part of our planning formula."
"There are only two ways to
stabilize concentration of green-
house gases. One is to avoid
emitting them in the first place;
the other is to try to capture them
after they're created. And there
are problems with both
approaches. We're making great
progress through technology, but
have not yet developed cost-effec-
tive ways to capture carbon emis-
sions at their source; although
there is some promising work
that is being done."
While society may not yet be
prepared to pay the cost of car-
bon dioxide capture and seques-
tration, we as the EDC should
help reserve this option for the
future by encouraging the design
of a capture-ready power plant
with sufficient flexibility so it can
efficiently incorporate future tech-
nologies at modest costs.
Coincidentally, the same geo-
logic research that SFWMD has
done to investigate the potential
for Aquifer Storage and Recovery
of fresh water, is also useful in the
process of carbon sequestration
site investigation. The top nation-
al scientists on the subject have
published reports that Florida's
deep geologic formations are suit-
able for carbon dioxide injection.
Think about it...15 years ago,
nobody would have thought we
would be paying $1.00 per thou-
sand gallons to store water in
massive artificial reservoirs for
environmental protection rea-
sons. (Those are rates compara-
ble to utility supplies.) But today,
that's exacty what we are doing.,
Our' socie my .ma very well be
going through a similar value
transformation relative to carbon
dioxide and our atmosphere.
Today, our EDC can demonstrate
leadership and vision by taking
steps to make adopting future
environmental protection tech-
nologies more affordable.
I encourage EDC directors to
consider the suggested amend-
ments. I will offer them at our
meeting where we cal discuss

Taxing times in Hendry: We have a problem
Gauging by the volume of citi-
zen letters to the Caloosa Belle
regarding the announced and pro-
posed increases in the City and
County real estate taxes. I'm
reminded of that scene in the
movie Apollo Thirteen. The scene
where Tom Hanks advises that,
"Houston, we have a problem."
Now, of course, to compare
that, "out of this world experience"
to the taxing dilemma might take a
little getting used to, but, like so
many other of life's experiences,
there is nothing new in the world
today except the history you don't
know about. This is particularly
true if you are under the age of 60,
and have never known a depres-
sion or a major financial crisis.
I'm reminded of a saying my
Mother used to refer to quite often
after having survived the "Great
Depression" without having to go

try, there are two things you can't
avoid in life, death and taxes."
Today, I think she might have
expanded her saying to include

Jr. Varsity still undefeated, 5-0
By Mallory Allen
and Ron Dunbar
The Cowboys Junior Varsity has
awed many with their efforts this
season. After winning their game
against Lemon Bay, 40-0, the boys
were all action. The top runner of
the game was tailback Dadrion
Williams with 8 carries for 70 hard-
eraned yards. As a sophomore he
has shown great skill and leader-
ship. Freshman Brian Hull also did
an excellent job as quarterback,
completing 6 of 9 passes for 100
yards and four touchdowns. He led
the team by throwing many pass-
es. Scorers of the game, Hobbs
Crockett, Josh Grimaldo, Ricky
Rodriguez and Dorian Deas, all
scored one touchdown. Angel
Alvarez was the only Cowboy to
score two touchdowns.
Defensively the Cowboys were
led by freshman Dale Thompson
as he recorded 8 tackles and recov-
ered one fumble. Sophomore line-
backer Robert Ford also had 8
tackles and Alvarez contributed
The coaches as well as the fans
were all very proud of the team. As
many of the fans drove thehour and
a half drive to Lemon Bay, theywere
not disappointed byaboring game.
"The boys were scoring left
and right!" One excited fan and
mother said. "They really have
their game on!"
This season the boys have
stayed tough through some of the
hardest of games. Their teamwork
is one of the best in the school and
the effort is endless. They have
done a great job this season.
Hopefully the boys can come
together again as they replay the
Clew\iston Tigers on October 5.

By Malloiy Allen
and Ron Dunbar
The Cowboys did an excellent
job this past Friday as they defeated
Lemon Bay and won theiirst dis-
trict game. Being pumped up and
ready at the start of the,game, the
Cowboys started strong in the first
quarter. The Cowboys had two
touchdowns a 21-yard run by
sophomore fullback Brandon Vil-
lareal and a 15-yarder from senior
tailback Andrew Tovar. Rey Her-
nandez made excellent kicks for
the additional points. This conclud-
ed the first quarter of the game
with a total of 14 points for the
Cowboys and just 3 for the chal-
lengers. This started the second
quarter leaving the Manta Rays
behind vith only a field goal for
three points. Andrew Tovar led the
Cowboys this game %with a total of
170 yards and three touchdowns.
He also had one catch for 23 yards.
This was one of Tovar's best games
yel. He, however, wasn't the only
Cowboy that made a strong effort
on the field. Senior wide out Chad
Lulkenhaus had the crowd on the
edge of their seats as he caught six
passes that added up to 119 yards
for the game. He hauled in two key
receptions from junior quarterback
Caleb Jordan while Tovar finished
off the drive with a 3yard run and a
20-17 halftime lead.
Starting off the second half of-
the game was no: surprise as the
Cow boys' defense held the Manias
back. However, their defense was a
different story. The Cowboys man-
aged to get the ball into the end
zone two additional times.
The stingy Cowboy defense
took over and created some golden
opportunities for the home team.
The offense did not disappoint
them as Villareal and Tovar found
pay dirt from 4 and 19 yards out
behind some outstanding blocking
from junior right guard Blake
Barnes and senior right tackle Mall

Brandon Villareal was another
name that stuck in the minds of
many. Being the only sophomore
on the team, Villareal made a huge
contribution by adding 12 points to
the board. Towards the end the
Mantas were able to gather up
enough force to score two touch-
downs in the end of the second
quarter. This didn't bother the
Cowboys as they, too, put in their
teamwork and came up on top.
The second half of the game was
spent holding the Mantas back and
scoring two more touchdowns.
This completed the game and
ended the score with LaBelle 34,
and Lemon Bay 17.
On the night Tovar finished with
a career high 13 carries for 170
yards and three touchdowns. He
also had one catch for 23 yards.
Jordan had a solid night at quar-
terback thro%\ing the ball going 7

"In a democracy, the highest office is that of citizens."
US Suprnem Court Justice Felix Frankfurter.
We agree. Yet too many citizens feel powerless to influence
the flow of events.
We give people a voice. Our Speak Out column is just one
example. We consider it an extension of the secret ballot
and a return of the values of the American Revolution.
How are we doing?
